You underestimate my level of freakability

Oh, good. Not hitting on him. That was good. Very good. It would make the next three years very awkward otherwise. Then Kir kept talking and Jozua began to suspect Kir might be making assumptions of his own. He made some valid points too that Jozua might need to think about more another time, but he had one thing wrong.

“Oh, no, I’d freak out if a girl hit on me, too,” he promised. “Probably differently,” he admitted, “But I’d’ve definitely concluded the same way, with a forceful assertion that I like Lily.” Of that he was certain.

He was nervous now, but figured Kir had already got hit with some dumb words from Jozua, so he could risk a few more, and he did want to know, for potential future need, “So if you really just want to spend the rest of your life adventuring around the world with your best friend, and you aren’t interested in dating anyone because she’s not interested in you, what is the culturally sensitive way to handle someone else fishing for compliments about their sexiness?”
