Agent 8's (Mike's) P.O.V

We were sitting down, drinking our coffee and enjoying each other's company. Well, I don't know about her, but I did. Anyways, I was staring down at my coffee as she was staring at her phone and scrolling. We were both silent, yet it didn't feel awkward. A small breeze came by, making my hair sway side to side. I couldn't help but feel extreme gratitude towards the inkling in front of me. I want to say it. i just needed to find a way to put it into words... I scrambled my head trying to find the right words to say to not make it sound too cheesy, not realizing that I had started to sweat and grip my cup tighter in my hand. I looked down, still trying to think. But it seems as if something was wrong with me because Sarah has called my attention.

Agent 3's (Sarah's) P.O.V

"Mike?" I called to him after peeking at him above my phone screen. He had been looking down nervously, as if he was going to be caught guilty of a crime. The octoling looked up, a small shade of red now appearing on his face. "Y-yea Sarah?" He asked, his voice shaky. "Are you okay? Is something bothering you?" I asked him. I put my phone in my back pocket, now completely focusing on him.

His cheek color seemed to deepen in a darker shade of red. "It's just uh.. *cough* I wanted to say thanks." He muttered that last part nervously. "W-what? Thanks for what?" I asked once more, my face starting to feel warm. "J-just thanks for everything you've done for me.." Mike had cleared his voice and fixed his composure by now. However, I was still confused on why he was thanking me. "Thank you for, y'know, for giving me a place to stay, food, and showing me around Inkopolis while showing me how everything works, and of course, for your kindness and friendship.." Mike said that last part while looking into my eyes. I couldn't help but blush more, the tip of my ears now turning red too.

I took a deep breath, fixed my composure, and grinned at him. "Y-you're welcome.." I stammered. "I'll tell you one thing, I-I don't regret any of it because I got a great and close friend out of it." I told him, my smile widening at him.

Mike looked down, now blushing madly and the tip of his ears now red too. I looked closer at him, and he had smile on his face.

Seeing a tough octoling like this, it was cute..
