“No.” Rei shook her head carefully as Asuka bounced up from the futon and moved closer to the blue haired girl.
“Well Misato did say to make changes....” Rei froze in place as the corners of Asuka’s lips curled up.
“We’ll... share everything.” Asuka whispered lightly as she cupped Rei’s face lovingly in both hands.
“Asuka…” Rei blushed deeply, looking into Asuka’s glazy eyes as the red head leaned forward her lips aimed at Rei’s. Rei could feel Asuka's warm breath on her face as…
“Asuka, Rei? Come eat!” Misato announced loudly as Rei jerked away from Asuka’s hands and approaching lips.
“I’m… sorry.” Rei mumbled sympathetically as she side-stepped Asuka and headed for the door. The wildly red head watched the red-eyed girl escape their room, smirking at Rei’s perfectly curved body as it disappeared out the door. Rei inhaled deeply as she walked through the hall to the kitchen. She rounded the corner to see Misato turn slowly as Rei expected another sneering face from her new tormentor.
“Hey Rei!” Surprisingly, Misato grinned widely as she stood at the stove stirring noodles with one hand and drinking a beer in the other.
“You and Asuka aren't fighting again... are you?” Misato tilted her head to the side, her eyes focused attentively on the blue haired girl. Rei stood silently as she simply stared at the full figured women.
“Rei? I asked you a question.” Misato struggled to keep her smile in place as Asuka strolled in the room and sat at the table.
“Good, let’s eat!” Misato shifted back to the noodles gladly as Asuka stirred in her seat, mumbling under her breath.
“Asuka, help Rei set the table please?” Misato asked sweetly as she started to fill their bowls.
“Yeah, whatever.” Asuka snapped toughly as she stood up and started her tasks.
“Silverware, glasses here, plates, and bowls over there.” Asuka pointed out swiftly as she pulled open the draw for silverware with a bored look on her face.
“Don’t pout Asuka, you look silly.” Misato laughed cheerfully as she crushed her empty can and tossed into the trash. Asuka bit back a sharp remark as she set the table. Rei watched wordlessly as she remembered every cabinet and all the draws in the kitchen as she took her share and set the table.
The two girls finished and sat at the table, watching Misato’s body language with curiosity and contempt as the violet haired women brought their dinner.
“Eat up girls.” Misato smiled lascivious as she turned and retrieved her own bowl. Misato grabbed another beer and joined the soundless girls at the table.
“So, how was your day you two? Misato asked innocently as she sat down and cracked her beer. Asuka huffed aloud as she remembered being slapped, punched, and kicked perfectly; yeah that summed up the highlight of her day.
“Good.” Asuka answered irately, leveling her elbow on the table and cupping her right cheek as she looked over to Rei. Rei looked down at the steaming noodles in front of her and then to Asuka who motioned her eyes to Misato.
“Ok.” Rei replied softly as she picked up her silverware.
“That’s great to hear.” Misato said slyly as she raised a fork full of noodles without regret. The three ate quietly for a while until Misato broke the silence, spooking both girls.
“I’m sorry for earlier, I’m just tired of you two always fighting.” Misato apologized considerably as she set her fork down and sighed.
“Given your age, you’re more emotional and distracted by everything around you.” Misato explained as she picked up her beer and leaned back in her chair.
“Shinji is worse off then the two of you, he doesn't know if he wants to be a pilot or not, But you two are more or would be more compatible if you’d just learn to get along.” A smile spiked Misato’s face, as she watched both girls look at each other.
“Well if Rei didn’t...” Asuka interrupted as Misato raised her hand, cutting her off from the unnecessary and probably rude comment.
“That why you're living here with me, I’m to… condition you two like one another.” Misato continued as she paused for a drink.
“So sticking us together were jus’ suppose to fall in love with each other and be best friends is that it?” Asuka protested hotly as she stared at Misato finishing her beer. Misato closed her eyes and shook her head despairingly as she set her drained can on the table.
“This is what I’m talking about, you and that damn mouth of you're Asuka, sometimes I jus’ want you bound, gagged and thrown in my closet!” Misato tone began to rumble as she slammed the top of her empty can crushing it. Asuka snapped her vision back to her half-eaten dinner as she felt Misato’s eyes smoldering into her.
“I wish you’d jus' play puppet like Rei…” Misato alleged unkindly as she let out a deep and much needed breath.
“I’m not a puppet.” Rei spoke up as she looked to Misato with growing anger.
“What?” Misato asked deafly as she turned her sights on the normally silent girl.
“I SAID I’m not a goddamn PUPPET!!!” Rei yelled unashamedly as she slammed her fists on the table. Both Misato and Asuka gawked with surprise as Rei stood up for herself.
“I was wondering when you were going to grow a backbone Rei.” Misato smiled viciously as she got up, walked to one of the cabinets and pulled out a small white jug.
“This… calls for a celebration!” Misato roared as she grabbed three small shot glasses, sat back down and started pouring.
“But Misato we’re not old enough to drink.” Asuka declared as she watched the clear liquid fill the glasses.
“Well in Texas you can drink at any age as long as you’re with a parent or guardian.” Misato stated all knowingly as she finished filling the glasses and set one in front of both girls.
“But we’re not in Texas.” Asuka confirmed scornfully as she looked at Rei.
“Is it that hard to pretend little missy?” Misato spoke jokingly in one of the best Texan accent Rei had ever heard.
“Bottoms up girls.” Misato continued her accent, as Rei and Asuka tried smiling as they lifted their glasses and drank together.
After an hour of drinking the super sake Misato had got from Hong Kong the three could feel the effects of the alcohol.
“And he says to the bartender, “That’s not a lion its a giraffe!” Misato laughed heartily as Asuka and Rei joined her for the silly punch-line.
“I want to listen to sooooome muuuuusic.” Asuka slurred as she stood up and fell in the same motion.
“Watch that first step it’s a do-z.” Misato chuckled on as Asuka basically crawled the rest of the way to the CD-player. Misato smiled at Asuka’s swaying ass as she looked over Rei.
“Are you having fun Rei?” Misato asked drunkenly as she poured another drink for her.
“Yeah, I really am.” Rei grinned saucily as she took the glass and downed it. Rei could feel the heat in her cheeks as she looked dreamily at Misato. She hadn't noticed it earlier how pretty Misato really was, her violet hair sided her soft almost wrinkle-free face that highlighted her violet eyes which were like windows to her kind and caring soul, lips so full they just begged to be tasted.
“You’re beautiful.” Rei blurred aloud as she covered her mouth quickly, blushing totally red.
“T-that’s good to hear, here.” Misato stuttered a little from the alcohol and shock as she filled Rei’s glass again.
"Stupid, stupid, stupid." Rei groaned softly at making a fool of herself as Asuka grabbed her hand and yanked the blue haired girl to her feet.
"Dance with me Rei!" Grinned Asuka as she lead the drunk girl into the music blaring in the living room
