    Pairs- Part 1.5

    ~~~Autumn Leaf POV~~~I wasn't really listening to anything he said. I was having much more fun singing "Blue Monk" in my head over and over while daydreaming. I only piped up when he called my name. I learned the hard way that you should listen to Royal Guards. <p>~~~Blue Moon POV~~~I don't get scared by a lot of things. That's the truth. But the way those guards stare at you-man, it's creepy. <p> ~~~MC Pwn E POV~~~Truth be told, I'm not the world's greatest listener either. I was listening to dubstep, anyway, and here this guy comes, just completely interrupts, and snickers at my name. I mean, have you ever met a time lord named Noteworthy or Caramel? No!
