"You have the Flu? That sucks Sarah!!"
Sarah nods. "And its a ghastly one, too. All congested chest and pounding head and fever and chills and all. But I still get to go to work, since Americans -insist- on having heartattacks, getting run over by boulders, overdosing on a potpourri of narcotics or-- and this is my favorite-- stripping off all of their clothes, shouting obscenities, urinating in hospital rooms and attacking nurses."
Clay grins. "Hey, is there anything I should bring dress wise? And is there somewhere I can do laundry, or should I bring enough clothes for the whole time. :)"
Sarah says, "My staff will do your laundry, dear. Neatly pressed and folded."
Clay laughs. "How cool is it to have a staff? :)"
Sarah grins. "It's pretty cool most of the time. Sometimes it gets to be a pain, but mostly, they're great. And the few little inconveniences (like getting scolded by the driver when I drive MY OWN FREAKING CAR around) are nothing compared to never having to dust, do dishes or wash clothes."
Sarah HEYs, too! This is SO not fair. I got all of my characters up to level 100 on Final Fantasy VIII (100 being the very top level, can't go any farther) and the Omega-Freakin-Weapon casts 'Level 5 Death' on everyone as its first move in the final battle. That means that anyone whose level is a multiple of five is instantly killed. NOW WHAT?
So clear now how the Crush is only fascination that one knows will never come to fruition. It's easy in that case to flirt and be aggressive.
The Attraction however has potential, and it's the potential that makes one more cautious. Planning each step and watching that mistakes are not made.
With both, however, there are inherent dangers. One can scare the Crush away if one is too flirtatious or too aggressive. One can loose the one one is attracted too if one takes too long to make decisions, or one moves too carefully.
Thank god it's almost November.
She seems to have that physical attraction...
