>>33739940>You nervously look over at the door, sweating bullets as you remember all of the other times Sour Sweet eavesdropped.>Sugarcoat already saw that no one else was out there, and she knows that Either April or Gloriosa would have said something if they saw Sour Sweet nearby, but she gets nervous too anyway when she sees the expression on your face.>You were talking pretty loudly, there. Loudly enough for Sour Sweet to be able to hear clearly if she was standing right out there.>Can’t even imagine what would happen to you in the next minute or two if she turned out to be out there just now, listening in on the sudden conversation Sugarcoat sparked up.>With this, you get up out of your chair and walk over to the door.>Crack it open.>Right away, you expect to see Sour Sweet’s ponytail right there in the gap between the door and doorway… but nothing’s there.>Open the door all the way, swinging it slowly, only to find that no one is standing there. No one at all.>And your heart is at ease once more.>Damn, what has this girl done to you?>Sugarcoat can be heard letting out a sigh of relief too.
“Alright, so we nee-… you cut yourself off and then lower your voice to a whisper and shut the door before locking it. “We need to come up with a plan. She just came by this place about an hour or so ago, I’m sure she won’t think anything’s wrong if I call her back up again.”>”Okay, so what should I tell the others?”
“Just tell them to hold off for now. We have to do this carefully, because we all know how crafty Sour Sweet can get. But do tell them that I know and I’ll do anything I can to end this.”>Sugarcoat nods.
“I’ll think of something after the next time I talk to Sour Sweet.”
