Hudson said out loud, covering his mouth, although his laughter still caused a few people to glance their way, though that could have been for his ultra loud exclamation, too. Whatever, if they had a problem with two guys having a conversation, then they could go elsewhere. The twenty one year old crinkled his nose and shook his head because vividly remembered exactly what Edan was talking about. "I'd never seen such a tiny oven go up in smoke that fast,"
he stated through laughter and a loose smile. His face turned serious for a moment as he said, "But you could still make me something in the microwave."
His eyes never lost the amused light within them, and he burst out into chuckles once more, shaking his head and covering his mouth with the back of his hand. Of course, he was joking, and Edan should know that by now. Hudson was more than happy to take his friend's leftover pizza rather than making him cook something for him. Besides, Tinsley made him enough tacos and enchiladas as it was.
The brunette sighed and shrugged his shoulders. There wasn't really much that could be done in his situation, but at least Edan was somewhat understanding. The two of them were alike in the sense that they were pretty levelheaded when compared to their friends, although Hudson lost all credibility and responsibility when he became intoxicated, but that was a whole other story entirely. The other boys, with the exception for Maverick, apparently lived off of the drama - even fed off of it, in most cases. Hudson was never that kind of guy, and he never could be that kind of guy. After his little time in jail, he liked to not create waves in the swimming pool. That usually only meant that bad things were going to happen. For instance, someone finding out about his past.
"Yeah," Hudson began after finishing another two bites of his lunch. He sniffled and rubbed his nose with the back of his hand before wrapping his hand around his drink, intending to pick it up and drinking it. "We're one of a kind, Cupid," he said, grinning smugly at the use of the petname 'cupid' that Elsa had given Edan. It was completely and utterly ridiculous. He loved it. "Whatever. Like you said, Tinsley is an angel. I'm hoping that it'll blow over soon because I don't wanna deal with that shit." He paused, bringing the straw of his drink to his lips, but not taking a sip. He was contemplating something. "Does that make me a shitty person? I feel like I'm not defending Tinsley, even though I am. I dunno. Whatever." He took a sip of his drink and then added on tactfully, "Is it also bad that I'm hoping Emi or Elsa will put her in her place so that I don't have to choose between a friend and my girlfriend?"
