Credit to @WendyMarvel12 for stopping me from procrastinating yay
yes i know ‘love of my life’ is not on that CD but it should be so it is.
25/03/19 I actually decided to fix it yay
Whatever the date is:
I realised I can’t spell
“So it’s pineapple, vegetable, cheese and pepperoni?”
“And mushroom. Ah, thank you. Yes, thanks. Bye.” Combeferre hung up.
“Well, do you want to get on with the dance whilst we wait for them to arrive?” Valjean asked, checking the time.
Enjolras stood up and took Grantaire by the hand.
“Of course! We have a routine all prepared to a great song.” He announced excitedly. “Joly?”
Joly shuffled his feet, scuffing the ground.
“Well... you said that the music was in the classics section.... classics are usually really old and covered in dust so I bought this one instead.” He handed him a CD.
“‘Queen’s Greatest Hits’.” Enjolras read out. “Gee. Thanks Joly. Now our first dance can be ‘Another One Bites the Dust’!” He exclaimed sarcastically, as Joly looked down at his feet.
It was surprisingly Grantaire who took the positive stance here.
“Hey, there’s many others to dance to!” He took out another album. "A Night At The Opera!" He read aloud, rolling his 'r's and giving a mocking bow along with elaborate gesture. “Like... Love of My Life?” He suggested.
“It’s about a heartbreak.”
“Well... Somebody to Love?”
Enjolras raised his eyebrows.
“You’re my Best Friend?” He offered. Enjolras sighed and shook his head, smiling.
“You really love this band, don’t you?” He asked, as Grantaire nodded enthusiastically. “Oh, alright. Go on then, Joly.”
And so it was that their first dance was to ‘Love of My Life’: a far cry from Enjolras’ ideal
routine to ‘Pachelbel Canon’ , though he doubted R would have been sober enough to perform anyway.
The first few lines to ‘You’re my Best Friend’ lingered in the air for a while. Enjolras gazed into his partners eyes as they danced, Grantaire glancing down at his feet at times.
“My feelings are true,
I really love you.”
The intense and emotional look in Grantaire’s eyes almost made it appear as though he was the one singing the words. Enjolras paused.
He was. Tonelessly, too.
“YoU’rE mY bEsT fRiEnD!”
In that moment, Enjolras practically died of embarrassment. He tried not to, but caught the eyes of many chuckling guests.
“OOOooOOOOhHhhhHH YOU MaKe Me LiVe!!”
