This comment is gonna be about the bet! But if you’re interested in a general comment about other scenes click HERE
Pat is really smart with that bet: maybe it was a coincidence, maybe he just had to try different ways to approach Pran, but the bet was IT!
The moment he writes ‘’KISS?’’ on the sand and Pran actually starts to talk is when Pat undertands it’s the right moment to open up, I love how free he is with his feelings and I think him telling Pran what happened with Ink was the last right thing he needed to do in order for Pran to give up just as much as he needed to finally break in. Because as soon as Pran’s guard falls down and finally accepts that Pat likes him Pat is quick to say ‘no, you do, let’s bet about it’‘
Was it intentional ? Did Pat know it was the only thing that could make Pran accept what they have? It doesn’t really matter because competition is their thing and right know it looks like the only thing Pat will be able to have from Pran.
Pat would 100% lose if he could: The way I see it is that if Pran lost Pat would date him straight away but if Pat lost Pran would cut what they have for their sake. So more than ‘’let’s se who falls first’’ I see it as ‘’Let’s keep it up the way it’s comfortable for you until you’re ready to take the risk’’
Pran accepting Pat likes him: Was I the only one finding cute the ‘’Just admit it, you like me’’ from Pran? Because to me he looked like he was saying it because he was finally accepting it, his tone sounded like someone testing the water, affirming that YES, after years Pat likes him back and wants to be with him!
Pat is going insane and he’s both ready and not ready for it: After the last scene I’m scared to log in AO3 tbh…
To me Pat doesn’t really need to flirt with Pran to make him lose, he would do it regardless, what he doesn’t know is that Pran has years of fake scenarios inside of his head! Poor Prat is gonna lose it at some point but I bet he’s all here for it!
