Marinette was sitting in her room with Tikki looking at one of Gabriel's new fashion magazine release. She sighed a breath of love as she looked at the pictures of Adrien.
She said to Tikki, "Oh Tikki, isn't he perfect?"
Tikki smiled and laughed gently, "Not really I'm not into humans. I'm a Kwamii after all."
"Yeah but---," Marinette was about to say when she was cut off by her phone ringing. She picked it up and realized it was Alya. She answered it and said, "Hey Alya, what's up?"
"Girl, you won't believe the scoop I got of Adrien," Alya said excitingly.
"Then don't leave me hanging, spill Alya," Marinette said excitingly.
"According to Nino, Adrien told him that he likes Ladybug," Alya said.
"Well of course he does who doesn't like ladybug," Marinette said niavly.
"No girl, as in like,"Alya said.
Marinette's face turned super red, "What?"
"Yeah girl and since you had several encounters with Ladybug and Chat Noir maybe you can set up a "date" for Ladybug and Adrien," Alya said.
"Uh I got to go," Marinette said her face getting redder as she hung up.
"Me and Adrien on a date but as Ladybug? Maybe I should just tell him I'm Ladybug," Marinette said with her whole face red.
"NO," Tikki shouted, "You must keep your identity a secret."
"But...," Marinette started to say.
"No buts Marinette. Your identity must stay a secret," Tikki said politely firm.
"Fine," Marinette said in defeat.
