He could have her family locked up for what they did to her. As he felt her shifting around, he felt her hand take his, and he gently removed his hand from her's. He didn't like to be touch, unless he did the touching first. He put his hand behind his head, and smirked a bit. [#5baf6d "Leave it to me, and everything will be okay. Now get some sleep Al"] he said lightly. He kept his hand behind his head, and his one arm wrapped around her shoulders.]
[+red "As much as part of me wants to me say yes, I know killing him won't make me happy. Having his public image ruined would to be honest. But I know that won't ever happen."] She murmurs. Shifting around a bit, she gets more comfortable against him and holds onto his free hand. Closing her eyes again, she tries to pretend that he's holding her just because he wants to, and not because he feels obligated to.
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway The male shrugged a bit as he wrapped his arm around the woman's shoulder. [#5baf6d "If it'll make you feel a lot better, I can have a couple of my friends hunt that bastard down, and make sure he's no longer in the picture. It'll help with the healing process"] he offered. He was used to having Isabeau waking him up in the middle of the night, so it wasn't anything new. [#5baf6d "Don't be sorry. I would rather you wake me up, instead of dealing with it alone"] he said lightly. He kept his arm wrapped around her shoulders, letting her relax.]
She smiles gratefully and all but snuggles into him, her head pillowed by his shoulder. She closes her eyes for a few minutes and simply enjoys the safe feeling she felt while in his arms. She really didn't want to talk about her nightmare, but he was right in saying it would get better if she did. Taking a breath she says [+red "It was just about the last time my father beat me. I wasn't able to shake it off like I usually do."] She shrugs slightly. [+red "I still didn't mean to wake you though "]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway The male wasn't about to leave her alone, and he nodded a bit. [#5baf6d "I'll stay as long as you want me too. When you are ready to talk about it, then you are welcome to just talk. I'm not gonna judge, you should know that"] he said lightly. He shifted a bit back onto her bed, his back leaning against the headboard, and he opened his arms towards her. Offering a safe place to sleep for the night. He knew he wasn't going to sleep any time soon either. So he might as well just hold her, until she was back asleep.]
She shakes her head a bit, a soft sigh escaping her lips. [+red "I don't want to talk about it right now, maybe later."] She hesitates for a moment before almost whispering [+red "Can you stay with me, please?"] As soon as she asked, she felt foolish. She had no right to ask that of him, and full expected him to say no.
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway The male could understand the whole thing with nightmares. He hated them with a passion, and it was the first time that he's ever had a woman in his home that's had them. The women he normally slept with didn't have them, and he was normally gone in the middle of the night anyway. He shook his head lightly and looked down at her. [#5baf6d "Don't be sorry Al. Really. It's not a problem. I'm just glad you are okay. If you wanna talk about the nightmare, you are more than welcome too. Maybe talking about it, will help a little bit. But I'm not really sure, since I haven't really dealt with them"] he admitted. He felt kind of foolish for admitting that, but he didn't really have much choice. He wanted her to be honest with him, so he had to be honest with her.]
She lets out a startled yelp as her door flies open and she is suddenly pulled into his arms. She goes to struggle only to slowly recognize his voice. She buries her face in the crook of his neck, and breathes in his familiar scent. It takes nearly a half hour, but soon the shaking stops and so do her tears. Slowly she pulls back, not enough that he has to let go of her, but just enough that she doesn't feel confined. She thinks of playing it off as nothing, but recalls her promise not to shut him out or push him away. [+red "I'm sorry for waking you...it was a nightmare. They usually don't get that bad."]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway The male hadn't realized he had fallen asleep until he heard Alex screaming in the other room. He flew from the bed, and threw open her door. [#5baf6d "Al? What's wrong baby?"] he asked. He sat on the edge of her bed, and pulled her into his arms. He could feel her shaking, and he held her against him. [#5baf6d "Shhh baby, you're okay. You are safe, nothing's going to hurt you"] he said lightly. He held her against him, rocking her back and forth gently.]
After a few hours she falls into a fitful doze and drift into a nightmare. She was reliving the last time her bother beat her. As her mind stays trapped in the nightmare her body starts to thrash around and scoff whimpers escape her lips as she mentally pleads for her father to stop. As it gets worse, she suddenly let's out a loud scream that wakes her up. With tears in her eyes, she draws her knees up to her chest and rests her forehead on them. Her body was coated in a fine sheen of sweat, and every so often a shudder would run through her.
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway The male was slightly confused when she told him she was going to bed. What was it he had said? Was it because he had been honest with her? He sighed lightly as he watched her leave. She hadn't even touched her food, and that kind of annoyed him. He couldn't make her eat though if she didn't want to. He sighed lightly as he moved over to the counter, picked up her plate and put the sandwich into a bag. He then finished cleaning up the kitchen, and went into his own room for the night. He shut the door behind him, and moved to the bed. He sat down, put his head into his hands, and just sat there. He fucked up yet again.]
She nods slightly, though a bit of sadness had crept into her gaze. She took his words to mean that he didn't have any romantic feelings anymore. Mustering up a smile, she says, [+red "Well, I'm sure you'll find someone, sooner or later. I'm going to go lay down for a little while. I'm kinda tired."] Ducking her head she leaves the kitchen and heads back to her room. Quietly she closes the door and goes to sit on the edge of her bed. Unbidden tears slowly trail down her cheeks that quickly wipes away. Silently she chastises herself for hoping for anything besides friendship, just because she had never moved on, didn't mean he hadn't. She flops back onto the bed and stares up at ceiling.
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway The male nodded lightly as he handed her a plate, and then grabbed a bag of chips and dipped them into the tuna. When she was firing off questions he shrugged a bit. [#5baf6d "I had been with someone, but found out she was cheating on me with an old friend of mine. So I kinda cut both of them off. Since then I've been sleeping around, testing the waters with other females, but none of them seemed to connect with me on a personal level"] he stopped there, and though about adding something else to it, but decided against it.]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [#5baf6d "Right now I'm enjoying the life, playing around, waiting to find the right person to settle down with. Who really knows anymore"] he muttered lightly. He dipped another chip into the tuna, and popped it into his mouth.]
[+red "That'll be good."] She leans against the counter and simply watches him work, a small smile still on her lips. [+red "So...what have you been up to in the past couple of years? Did you make any new friends? Are you seeing anyone?"] She blushes faintly as she asks that. [+red "God, I sound like a mother trying pry a conversation from a child."] What she really wanted to know is she had a chance to be with him again, or if that ship had sailed.
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [#5baf6d "I mean if she ever calls or messages me, I'll let her know you need to talk to her"] he said with a warm smile. He looked down at the tuna and shook his head a bit. He did hate it at one point. With a passion. But over the years he'd grown to love it. [#5baf6d "It's different I will admit that. But it's super easy to make when you aren't in the mood to cook anything"] he said with a smirk. It was nice seeing her like this. Opening up a little more, becoming more herself.]
