Jasper already raised brow shot up further. "What? Did that sound appealing to you or something? I mean, if you want, then I guess we could..."
Siarra was trembling at that point. "Jasper...I..." She swallowed.
Jasper frowned a bit, pausing in his walk to study her in concern. "You okay? You realise we don't have to do anything, right?"
Siarra closed her eyes, facing down so her hair was in her face. "Please stop it...either be serious or don't say such things, but please don't keep doing this to me."
"Who ever said I wasn't serious?" Jasper asked in a murmur, brushing her hair out of her face. "I just don't want you feeling all obligated, that's all."
"I mean that you keep sending mixed signals and it's stressing me out..." Siarra mumbled.
"Well I don't mean to, and I'm sorry," Jasper murmured and lightly kissed her hair.
Siarra closed her eyes. "So just...be careful. If you mean it, say it like you mean it. and if not...well...just don't joke about that kind of stuff."
Jasper's brow furrowed. "So basically... I'm never ever allowed to tease or joke ever again? Is that what you're saying?"
"No, that's not it." Siarra told him. "Just...not right now. you can't right now. Later it's okay, but I'm super easily stressed right now and I just need to calm down."
"Super easily stressed, huh?" Jasper sighed and began walking again, squeezing her hand gently. "Sounds... not fun."
"Hot tub should help that." Siarra mumbled. "They're meant for relaxation after all, right?"
"I suppose," Jasper said, nodding. "We'e still getting ice cream?"
"Yeah, but I wanna take some home. Can we just get some at the store?" Siarra asked.
Jasper shrugged. "I guess. Shall we have some in the hot tub?"
Siarra scrunched up her nose. "Hot tub and ice cream? I don't think that sounds good at all."
Jasper rolled his eyes. "Just a suggestion. Do you have an idea as to what flavour you'd like?"
"I'm a chocolate girl." Siarra said, smirking.
"Out of all the flavours in the world, you like chocolate." Jasper chuckled softly, shaking his head. "Alrighty then. That shouldn't be hard."
"Actually for a drink if I could have anything, I'd prefer blue raspberry, but for ice cream and pudding, I like chocolate."
