"Correction, you mean you were wasting time.” He said and snickered a little before putting his goggles on. In one swift movement he picked her up bridal style, once again showing off a little but he hoped that part was more discreet since if she knew he was trying to show off she’d never let that go.
"Shut up do you want to go with me or—" She was cut off by being picked up and instinctively wrapped her arms around his neck and gave him a look. "Well?" Was all she said, having expected him to just take off like the little shit he was. She’d probably have wind hair after this, not to mention she’d have to hide her face in his chest. Not that she minded but she couldn’t give that off just yet.
"What do you mean /how/ am I gonna carry you? Is there any other way to carry someone?" He asked in a bit of a teasing manner. He didn’t have super strength or anything but he figured she wouldn’t be that hard to carry. And just /maybe/ he wanted to show off a little but he’d never tell her that part.
Kate rolled her eyes and shifted to put her hands on her hips as she gave Tommy the ‘really’ face. “Just— uhg. Pick me up damnit, we’re wasting time. Speedster.” She didn’t know whether to reach out her hands or to just throw herself in his arms. Sure he wasn’t like, super strong, or anything but she really didn’t weigh that much so it shouldn’t be that hard for him to carry her.
"I could carry you?" He offered with a slight shrug. "I just don’t for the life of me want to walk all the way there." He added. He could practically feel himself getting bored already at the thought of going so slow. He really just wanted to get on his way and kick some bad guy ass. Finally get some action around here because he found himself slightly losing his mind from boredom more and more each day.
"Ha!" A snort like laugh was Kate’s first response before she crossed her arms and looked Tommy over for a long moment. "Fine, drop me and you’ll pay." She hummed lightly before taking a step closer to him and then furrowing her brow. "Okay, how are you going to carry me?” She asked, arching a brow before tilting her head in an expectant manner.
