Making My Own Decisions

This is just a short ficlet I wrote. It is just after Leofric asks out Lucy (this is a further expansion of what was mentioned in 40 random facts).

"You know his reputation, Lucy! Why would you even consider saying yes?" Rose questioned me.

"Because-" I began, but Rose cut me off as she continued her rant.

'What? Do you think you're different to him from all the other girls he has dated? Because you, along with all the other girls he has dated, are just attractive women for him to sleep with. Nothing more!"

"Rose, thanks for the inspiring advice, but I can take care of myself."

"I know you've had a crush on him for a really long time," Rose began to say, but now it was my turn to cut her off.

"Shut up, Rose. I told you: I can take care of myself. I appreciate the sentiment; I know you are just trying to protect me, but I can take care of myself."

"I am just trying to help you, Luce," Rose said, trying to smile reassuringly at me (though it turned out more of a grimace).

"I know, but please stop. I can make my own decisions."
