"No, uh, no! Right now, OK? I need to talk to you. Right now."
"Uh, alright Lapis. I'm coming."
"Lapis, you look kind of nervous. What's the matter?"
"N-nothing is, Peridot. I just... just be quiet and listen, OK?"
"No problem, Lazuli. Hit me."
"Well... I've been here on Earth for a long time. I've been here with you for... a while. And... it's your fault I'm here, you know. Your fault that I can never go back Home. Your fault that I'm... stranded on this planet. Your fault that I'm wanted by the Diamonds, and it's your fault that... I've lost everything I was made for."
"No. Be quiet for once, Peridot, I need to talk. I... don't quite know how it happened. But, in all my time down here, despite this amazing world, this world I've barely seen... I've only wanted to stay in one place. Right here. In this barn, with the person who destroyed my life. But... I think I might be rebuilding it. Into something new. With you."
"Peridot, listen. I... I don't quite understand it. But, after all this... I just... you, you know? Somewhere, despite all the terrible things that've happened with us, to us, around us... somewhere between your voice and your mind and your personality and your eyes and your gem and your hair and your hands and your tastes and your soul... I've fallen for you."
"Just shut up and get over here, you piece of garbage. You're standing too far away."
"LAZULI! LAPIS LAZULI!!!! GET YOUR ASS DOWN HERE!"
"We need to talk."
"Um, OK. What about?"
"There's... something I've been meaning to tell you! About... us."
"I... Lazuli, you have to understand how hard this is... but... damn it, I know this sounds stupid and cheesy..."
"What is it, Peridot?"
"I... I love you, Lapis. Like nothing else in the world."
"I love you, dammit! I didn't even really realize it until a few days ago. You kept going out to meet with the other Crystal Gems, and you'd come back, and all the time I was just sitting there in the loft, watching some lame human TV show, and every few minutes I'd stretch out my arm and I'd expect you to be there, and you weren't. And so I'd turn over and get restless, and pause the show and go down and pace, and then eventually you'd show up! It'd only be for a few moments, but the moment I saw you flying in it'd be like the whole world had brightened up! Like there was more reason to exist!"
"So you're... you're saying that..."
"I'm saying that there's no point in being free to be who you are if you can't share it with someone! Every time you'd fly down I'd greet you, we'd talk for a minute, you'd fly off again, and I'd say, huh, what was I so aggrivated about? I'd go back to watching the show until I'd forget you weren't right there with me, and I'd turn over to try and say something, to crack a joke, to just... make contact with you. And you wouldn't be there. I repeated that four times. Four. And on the fourth time, I suddenly realized... what the hell was I doing? Every goddamn time you left, I just... I fell apart! It was so wrong without you, and I was only alone for... for an hour! Two at best! I... I couldn't imagine living without you for months! Years! I need you. I need you in my life or I don't have a life."
"No, Peridot, that's wrong, you can't-"
"I KNOW! What's the point of living on this beautiful Earth if I can't share it with you?!"
"Please. Please no. Please just... just let me be what I am. Please don't go."
