[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.]
[+red "Its honestly up to you. I don't have a cell phone right now, so I guess you could call her, or I could just wait until she comes home. I don't know."] She glances at the bowl of tuna and smiles a little. [+red "I guess you have changed. You used to hate tuna fish. I remember you'd refuse to kiss me if I had even eaten anything with tuna, you said I wasn't sweet enough to mask its taste."] She shakes her head in amusement, her eyes full of warmth and a bit more life.
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway When the two finally got back home, Daxton slightly upset that she didn't want any of the clothing he had chosen for her, he let her get settled in. He went and changed into his boxers, and a black t-shirt. He might as well make himself comfortable. He wasn't about to be uncomfortable with Alex around. When he was done changing he made his way to the kitchen, and started rooting around in the cupboards for something to eat.]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway He then decided tuna sandwiches would be the best way to go. He pulled out a couple of cans, a container to put the tuna in, along with the mayo and bread. He whipped it up quickly and when Alex came back in, he had a sandwich ready for her. He shrugged a bit at her question. [#5baf6d "I'm not really sure when she's going to be home honestly. She tends to come and go as she pleases. If you want I can give you her cell number, or have her call me and you can talk to her"] he offered. It was better than nothing really.]
[+red "Never stopped me before, but alright. I'll see you upstairs."] She heads upstairs and goes to the room she had slept in, now her room, and slips on her raggedy shoes. [+red "I guess I should add shoes to list as well."] She murmurs to herself. She leaves her room and waits for Dax in the kitchen.
A few hours later she returns to her room with several bags of clothes and box of shoes. She was never one for clothes shopping, but she will admit that Daxter had made it fun. A smile forms on her lips as he recalls him teasing her a few times by suggesting clothes that were, in her opinion, too girly. Quietly she starts to put her things away. She had gotten several pairs of Jean's in blue and black. Her shirts varied in being short sleeve or long sleeve, and were either black, red or blue. She had gotten a pair sneakers and a pair of boots, both black. Her pajamas varied from nightgowns to a shirt and pants set. She had also picked up quite a few underthings, and boy was that a bit embarrassing. Alex was a very modest person, so shopping for underthings with Dax had been a bit trying, especially when he suggested some lacy things that would barely cover what they needed to. Once all of her things were put away she leaves the room to go and find Daxter. She wanted to see if she could help with anything and when Beau would be home, after all she still owed her an apology. No to mention she would have to figure how to explain who she actually is, and why she was going to be staying with them for a while.
It takes her a few minutes but she tracks Dax down in the kitchen. She goes to enter only to him having a heated conversation on a phone, since his voice was the only one she could hear. She could hear a few words every now and again like father, pain, payback. She waits until he stops talking before walking in. [+red "So....do you know when Beau will be back? I owe her an apology for trying to skip out this morning."] She hesitates before saying, [+red "And I'm not sure how to really explain all of this to her, you know?"]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway [#5baf6d "Clothes shopping will be pretty good. More your size anyway"] he said with a small shrug of his shoulders. When she mentioned taking some of his clothes, a small smirk passed over his lips. [#5baf6d "You might not wanna do that. You honestly don't know where they have been"] he said. He then nodded towards the stairs. [#5baf6d "I'll take you into town, and we can get you some clothes, along with pajamas. I'll be up in a few minutes"]]
She thinks for a moment before nodding. [+red "I guess clothes shopping would be best. I don't want to constantly borrow things from Beau."] She smiles a little. [+red "Either that, or I can just pilfer some shirts from you, you always have really comfortable ones."]
[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway][raleway The male rolled his eyes and let her go when she pulled back. He shrugged a bit shoving his hands into his own pockets. [#5baf6d "Honestly I don't know. I mean, I could take you shopping, get you clothes of your own. You are more than welcome to change up your room to the way you like it as well"] he offered. It was getting kind of awkward at the moment, but he wasn't going to let that bother him.]
