Ashina tried to calm himself down as she spoke, but for once he couldn't gain control of his emotions. He kept his face hidden as he held onto her. He listened to her heartbeat as he listened to her. Her voice was soothing though he still struggled to calm himself. He hadn't opened up like this to anyone before, but he knew he could trust Midori.
She blinked slightly feeling his tears and held him close. "That might not have been the case, love... What if they had gotten killed like Naruto's or... My Uncle Sasuke..." She said gently and rubbed his shoulders. "Even if it was, they made a huge mistake..."
Ashina pressed his face against her chest and held her tight. He was silent, though hot tears could soon be felt against her skin as he hid his face. He didn't want her to see him cry. He held her tightly, but made sure not to hurt her. "Why did my parents not want me...?"
She smiled and paused drawing listening. She looked up at him and set her things on his nightstand. She straddled his lap so she could look at him better. "I'm not sure how to describe it, baby...." She said honestly and kissed him softly.
"I talk with my hands?" he asked, then noticed he was gesturing yet again. He tilted his head for a moment before looking at her. "Oh, I guess I do," he said after a moment. He looked at his hands quietly before he looked away. He became lost in his thoughts then and occasionally would glance at Midori curiously. "Midori-chan...what's it like being born into a family?" he asked softly. "I know I asked before, but...I dunno...I've just been living alone. What's it like having someone who worries if you're out late? What's it like having someone who hurts when you hurt?" He frowned and looked away again. It never used to bother him, but over the last few years Ashina had started feeling lonely.
She listened and said. "Mom or Aunt Sakura would likely kick his ass if he did." She kept drawing him and smiled when he stopped moving. "You talk with your hands when you're upset, have you ever noticed that?" She asked and smiled up at him.
"I don't care if Naruto watches me, but he better not invade your privacy..." Ashina sighed softly and shook his head. He saw Midori start to sketch him and stopped moving as much so she could draw easier. He watched her quietly, simply watching her for awhile.
She kissed him back and cuddled him. "We'll be okay, right?" She asked in a whisper and played with his fingers. She kissed his cheek gently and looked up at him. She shyly grabbed her sketchbook and pencil case and adjusted beginning to draw him.
Ashina gently placed a hand on her face and caressed her cheek with his thumb. "I'm not mad at you, Midori," he promised her in a gentle voice. He kissed her lips and pulled her into a hug before he sighed. "I'm not originally from this village, so I guess that might be why..."
She looked up at him when he came back and hugged him. "I'm sorry I was loud...." She said and looked up at him. "News does seem to travel fast in this village..."
Ashina actually felt angry as the shinobi left. For years, the village had been fine with ignoring him yet the moment he got a girlfriend, that's when they decided to pay attention? He let out an annoyed growl and walked back to his room. "Damn it, is Naruto having me watched again?" he wondered and narrowed his eyes as he sat on the edge of the bed. "He had me watched last year," he told Midori and frowned. "Apparently watching me from a distance isn't good enough for him."
The shinobi nodded and said. "I kinda figured it was that or you had that girlfriend of yours over...." He left and went back to his usual work.
Midori blushed and waited for him to come back. She was embarrassed for being so loud and getting Ashina is trouble.
Ashina was quiet for a few seconds before glancing in the direction of his bedroom. He slowly looked at the shinobi. "I...was watching hardcore porn," Ashina lied slowly and made himself look embarrassed. "I had some free time between missions. You know how it is, you have to find some way to relax or the stress will kill ya."
"sorry, Ashina. Your neighbors called about a woman screaming from your apartment." The shinobi said and scratched the back of his head. "So I have to check if everything is okay."
Midori listened and blushed sitting up. She kept herself covered and bit her lip slightly.
Ashina got out of bed with a frown. Luckily, he had remained fully dressed during the hour. He walked through his apartment to the door and opened it with a confused look. "Yes? Is something wrong?"
