Three Wishes

Work Text:

Villanelle
What would you ask for if you had a magic lamp? (Yes, this is a serious question)

You’re probably asleep, but I can’t stop thinking about it.

Eve
How many wishes do I get?

Villanelle
3, and you can’t ask for more wishes.

Eve
This is a LOT harder than I thought it would be.

#1 To have a better wardrobe

#2 For the ability to stop time whenever I needed a break. A little time bubble that I could pull people into too.

#3 To be free

Villanelle
A better wardrobe is a very nice wish, but I could easily help you with that. I've been trying for years.

What do you want to be free of, Eve?

Eve
Obligation.

Villanelle
And what is holding you back?

Eve
Me probably. Definitely. We spend our whole lives obliged to do things we don’t always want to do then keep feeling obliged to deal with the obligation because it’s what’s expected of us.

You’re lucky you’re free from this shit.

Villanelle
Ha. I am not free, Eve.

Eve
I guess not. At least my obligations aren’t likely to end with me dead.

I don’t want to think about you dying. There was a time when I wanted you dead but I can’t imagine my world without you in it now. I don’t want to imagine it.

Villanelle
I miss you.

I wish you were here.

Eve
Where is “here” today?

No. Don’t tell me. The last time I asked you told me you’d have to kill me if you did.

I wish there was a Find my Villanelle app so I could stalk you like a creep. It’d make a nice change.
I miss you too by the way. More than I probably should. I’m imagining you sitting somewhere watching your mark, taking it all in so the job is perfect.

If you can’t tell me where you are, can you tell me about your day? I’ve been stuck at the office since 7am trolling through paperwork. I want to put an axe through my own head!!!!

Villanelle
You’re a creep already, Eve. Where did you get those thoughts? But I like how “my Villanelle” sounds from you.

I wish we could be together, all the time, without weird and stalking apps.

My day was boring. Everything here is boring. I'm looking forward to the wedding of my target's daughter over the weekend.

Would you like to come as my date and watch, Eve? That would make it all more exciting. You would get rid of the paperwork and my wish would come true.

Eve
As lovely as crashing a wedding to murder someone sounds, I think I’ll take a pass.

Villanelle
What a shame. Can't wait to see you on Sunday then.

Eve
Sunday? I don’t recall making any plans for Sunday.

Villanelle
But you have now.

Be ready at 6 PM.

Eve
If you are taking me on a date to an assassination I will be killing YOU, Villanelle!!

Villanelle
If you kill me, who will take you on good dates?

But that’s not what we will do.

You’re not very romantic, Eve.

But I am.

Eve
Hmmmmmm. Dress code?

Villanelle
It is not necessary.

But no turtlenecks.

Eve
Ok. I’ll wear one of the tops that look like a jumper and a shirt. You seem to love them too 😁

Villanelle
You wouldn’t dare.

Eve
Challenge accepted
Villanelle
Eve.

Eve
You aren’t leaving me any options. You’ve seen my wardrobe.

Villanelle
Be a good girl, Eve.

What about that beautiful blue dress you wore in Moscow? It fits you so well.

I’m sure it is delicious to take it off too.

Eve
Maybe. You’ll have to wait and see.

Do you have a car coming to pick me up?

Villanelle

No, we’re doing this the old-fashioned way.

Be ready for me at 6.

Gotta go now, Eve.

Eve
Ohhhhhhhkay then. See you at 6 xo
