            Jess looked so happy curled up in his arms, Becker yet again couldn’t help feeling like a fraud. She was sweet, and he had to admit he enjoyed spending time with her, but he couldn’t go on lying to her.

            “Jess, I have to tell you something.”

            She wriggled around to look up at him, so trusting.

            “Oh?”

            Becker had no idea how to say it. He could imagine the look of disgust in her eyes.

            “What is it? You can tell me, it’s okay.”

            Becker hoped Jess wouldn’t hate him when she knew the truth.

            “I love orange chocolate.”

LOL! Neat bit of misdirection there *bg*.

I did worry if the misdirection was laid on a bit thick, but for once this was a drabble that was *less* than 100 words in the first draft, so I had to add a bit!

LOL I like it!! How could she possibly be with him now?
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: April 4th, 2011 09:14 pm (UTC) (Link)
hee, thanks. I have to admit I'm with Jess on this subject - chocolate should *not* be contaminated with evil orange flavour! (Although I probably wouldn't kick Becker out of bed for eating chocolate orange, you understand *grin*).

Lol, fab twist! Love it!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: April 4th, 2011 09:15 pm (UTC) (Link)
hee, thanks. Poor Jess, how will she cope with the truth?

If she decides she doesn't want him, I'll take him! I like orange chocolate...

Great drabble.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: April 5th, 2011 06:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hee, I think there's a long queue of people who will have him if Jess doesn't want him!

Hee hee!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: April 5th, 2011 06:57 pm (UTC) (Link)
:-) I couldn't resist it!

Lol! But do they both like or hate marmite?
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: April 5th, 2011 06:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
lol, indeed. It probably doesn't matter, just as long as neither of them uses the same knife for the marmite and then the margarine and *contaminates* the marg!

HAHAHAHA!!

*phew*

:D
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: April 5th, 2011 06:59 pm (UTC) (Link)
lol, were you worried there might angst again? not that I have a reputation for angst, at all...
reggietate From: reggietate Date: April 5th, 2011 08:52 am (UTC) (Link)
LOL! Nice one :-)
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: April 5th, 2011 07:00 pm (UTC) (Link)
hee, thanks.

*sporfles*

But is this a deal-breaker or not? *g*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: April 5th, 2011 07:01 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'm sure Jess won't mind, he probably has several other redeeming features...
echo_fangirl From: echo_fangirl Date: April 5th, 2011 11:59 am (UTC) (Link)
*snicker* Quite a confession there!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: April 5th, 2011 07:02 pm (UTC) (Link)
Jess will probably forgive him, as long as he keeps the orange chocolate a long way away from her!
nietie From: nietie Date: April 5th, 2011 01:42 pm (UTC) (Link)
LOL!
Well, Jess, a very good reason for not dating him anymore. I'll take him!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: April 5th, 2011 07:03 pm (UTC) (Link)
lol, I think there's a not-so-orderly queue forming for people who want to take him if Jess decides she doesn't want him!
knitekat From: knitekat Date: April 5th, 2011 02:03 pm (UTC) (Link)
LOL. Nice bit of misdirection there.
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: April 5th, 2011 07:04 pm (UTC) (Link)
thanks, I couldn't resist once the idea popped into my head.
aylabones From: aylabones Date: April 5th, 2011 02:50 pm (UTC) (Link)
*laughs* poor Becker,it´s quite sweet from him being concerned about that

Frankly, Jess, I don´t know how you can be with him; leave Becker, we are trained to support his horrible tastes and we are willing to make such a great effort.

Although, for once, I´m with Jess and, apparently, with deinonychus too :-): chocolate is too good to mix it with other things *runs to watch the movie "Chocolat" and remains preoccupied with the melted chocolate and Johhny Depp*
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: April 5th, 2011 07:06 pm (UTC) (Link)
lol, I'm sure Jess will forgive him and overlook this weird desire to contaminate perfectly good chocolate! damn, that means we can't have him...
fredbassett From: fredbassett Date: April 5th, 2011 04:22 pm (UTC) (Link)
LOL! I was expecting something more angsty than that!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: April 5th, 2011 07:07 pm (UTC) (Link)
hee, excellent! Clearly my reputation for angst is useful for the times when ideas like this pop into my head.
lsellersfic From: lsellersfic Date: April 9th, 2011 07:48 pm (UTC) (Link)
LOL! He's in so much trouble!
deinonychus_1 From: deinonychus_1 Date: April 9th, 2011 08:19 pm (UTC) (Link)
hee, thanks. Yep, Jess will not be pleased with that revelation!
