The Reveal..... almost. Part One!

Marinette took a deep breath and tried to calm herself. She could do this. Just return Adrien's schoolbook that he dropped. Not that hard, right?

She pushed open the door. 'A-adrien?'
Adrien stood with his back to the door. 'Plagg, Claws out!'
Tikki watched from Marinette's purse. 'Oh my goodness,' she whispered. 'I should have guessed...'

Marinette slammed the door and ran away, as if to erase the sight from her mind. There had to be a mistake... a resonable explanation... something. Adrien just couldn't be Chat... they were completely different! She blushed, remembering Chat flirting with her, both as Ladybug and as Marinette. That was Adrien? The whole time? She slowed, taking a deep breath. 'Tikki? What should I do?'

Chat Noir spun around as he heard the door slam. 'Hello? Is someone there?' he called, hoping no-one would answer. If someone had seen him transform... well, he wasn't sure WHAT would happen, but he was sure it wouldn't be good. He shrugged it off, reasoning that they would have said something. It was probably just the wind. And even so, there was nothing he could do...

'Marinette, calm down! It's not the end of the world!'
'But it is! We aren't supposed to know!' Marinette spluttered. 'What if I tell him, and he thinks I was spying on him or something? And he'll never go on a date with me ever! My life is OVER!'
Tikki raised her eyebrows (or she would, if she had any). 'Marinette, I'm sure he'll forgive you. Just tell him it was an accident, because it was. Do you really think he'll be that upset? After all, he does want to know who you are...'
'I think... maybe I could just not tell him? Then no-one would have to know! I could just pretend I didn't know!'
'If you really think you can do it...' Tikki shook her head, doubtful. 'But don't you think it would be better just to come clean?'
'No, I can do it! I'll be fine,' Marinette said confidently. 'But I wonder why he was transforming.... OMG! Patrol! Chat said he wanted to start early tonight for some reason... and I completely forgot!' She ducked into a closet, just to be sure no-one would see her transform. 'Tikki, spots on!!'
