Edd (Double D) x Reader

"I hope you don't mind my asking- but what in the world was that?"
After you had gotten a good block away from school boundaries, Eddward had managed to convince you that whatever you were running from must've been gone by now. However, you refused to tell him the real reason for your retreat; as you yourself just wanted to forget about it anyways. Unfortunately, you had to do something about it at some point.
"S-Sorry, I'm afraid I can't tell you..." He gave you a puzzled look before you clarified. "It's kind of a long story, I guess."
Suddenly something occurred to you- you shouldn't be getting so cuddly with Edd. A reliable source; yourself, had already made it quite clear that you should just stand aside, and eventually you'll get over it. Then again, the Kankers had given you some insight as well. You furrowed your brow.
"..Besides, it's none of your business."
Glaring at the path in front of you, your ears perked up at the sound of giggling. You turned and looked at Double D, who was still walking next to you, covering his mouth just slightly; as he was still carrying your books under his other arm, failing to suppress his laughter.
"What's so funny?"
"Oh!" He looked to you, offering a friendly grin. "It's just that..."
"You're, um... Holding my hand." He gestured down to both of your hands, currently intertwined with one another.
You squeaked in both surprise and embarrassment, quickly snatching your hand back, now holding it behind your back. You stared down at your feet, with a blush about as hot as a thousand suns etched on your face. You inwardly cursed yourself for being so careless- you guessed it had somehow felt so natural, you had just forgotten. You were feeling so dizzy, you were fearful of passing out.
Eddward on the other hand, was just smiling away. Though he did regret ever bringing it up in the first place, watching you squirm was just too cute.
He held his smirk, and looked over at you. You were still having inner war, trying not to make eye contact.
Hesitantly, you looked over out of the corner of your eye.
"It's alright! ...I didn't exactly hate it."
This time, he was the one red-faced, while you just gawked at him.
He quickly changed the subject.
"Oh, isn't that your house?"
You looked ahead of you, and you were indeed coming upon your house. The walk had been short, much to your dismay. But you enjoyed yourself.
"I don't know," You had relaxed a bit, responding to his inquiry with sarcasm. "Where does Nazz live?"
"Okay, okay..." He rolled his eyes playfully. "I guess that means farewell?"
Edd handed over your books, and you thanked him. He seemed pretty relieved; he doesn't actually have very good upper-arm strength. But that was fine by you, as you were never really the all-star student in gym class either.
"I guess so. See you tomorrow?"
"Of course. Same time, same place." You both laughed light-heartedly, but after his little "of-course-we-gotta-go-back-to-school-joke", he just stood there awkwardly. Almost not knowing what to do exactly. He rubbed the back of his neck uncomfortably, until offering you his hand; you assumed he wanted a handshake or something.
You just smiled in response, took his hand, leaned forward and quickly pecked him on the cheek. You stepped back, waved him goodbye once more, and raced for your front steps. You didn't know whether you wanted to see his reaction or not, but you were hoping it wasn't disgust.
Swinging open the front door, and closing it behind you, you sighed, leaning against the door on the inside. Soon Nazz had walked in, finding you sitting on the floor, giggling girlishly. She just rolled her eyes and smiled.
"Nice, Romeo!" Ed and Eddy emerged from the bushes, having seen the whole thing. Double D was still standing there, eyes half-lidded and grinning with one hand touching the place you'd kissed just moments ago. Eddy walked up and slapped him on the back, snapping him out of it-
and nearly knocking him off his feet.
"Didn't know ya had it in ya, pal!"
"Say, how's about we head over to Ed's place and hang out. You've been avoiding us all day! Forget about your girlfriend for a while and come hang with us!" For once, Edd ignored the "girlfriend" comment, and obliged. Deciding it would do him some good to be with his friends for a while.
Eddy led them off down the sidewalk, Ed trailing behind them, laughing the rest of the way.
