"You’re just mad cause I called you out on it" Aiden said gruffly, looking down at Rebekah. "I’m not going to force or guilt you into this, I just want to know how you feel" he mumbled quietly
"Your are not as good as you think in reading body language.", Rebekah said, slight anger in her voice, as she crossed her arms in front of her chest.
"I know I am, but so are you" Aiden retorted, smiling down at her. "I know you do but this is serious, I want a straight answer from you, no bullshit" he said firmly.
"Well, you are not going to get a straight answer then.", Rebekah told him, serious, this was no part of her game.
"You have an eternity, it’s not going to waste too much of your time" Aiden said softly, taking one of his hands out of his pocket and lifting her chin up so she was looking at him. "No more games" he said quietly
"You are very frustrating.", the blonde said sighing. When she had to look up at him, she raised an eyebrow. "But I love my games."
"I have to lose it to something" Aiden said confidently, aware of what he was saying could be seen as insane. "Take a chance with me" he invited her
Rebekah run a hand through her hair and rolled with her eyes once again. “And then people say I am stubborn.”, she mumbled.
"You don’t get it. I don’t have anyone to mourn my loss or give a shit if I’m gone. I’m not going to be scared away by stories of your exes. So now answer my question. Are you trying to let me down easy or protect me?" Aiden asked again
"But you would still have to lose your life.", she tried to make clear. The blonde rolled with her eyes. "You are such an idiot."
"Are you trying to let me down easy or actually trying to protect me? Cause I can take care of myself. I know loss and danger. Let me make the decision of what I get into if you’ll let me" Aiden said firmly and definitively.
"Then let me tell you something about my ex boy friends. One of my first boyfriends, one night he was pinned against the wall, with his own weapon, killed by my brother. Another one, he was like family to my brother, he threatened to kill him if he ever comes close to me. Then one boy, well raised, from a good family, my brother grabbed him by his neck and threw him down the stairs and I can go one like that for ages."
"Right now, you are the only thing that makes me feel like I might have a life again, so I am ok with the risks" he insisted, knowing how desperate he sounded. Aiden didn’t care, he liked Rebekah a lot and brought some normalcy to his life
"You have no idea what you are talking about.", she tried to explain. He really had no idea what he was getting himself into.
"Please tell me what you’re thinking" Aiden asked desperately, knowing it had been stupid of him to have said anything like that now
"I think you have no idea with what you are dealing.", the blonde said after a moment of silence.
"You never know someone completely, part of a relationship is to get to know someone more. And I’m not saying right now, but eventually" he said, taking his arms from around her and shoving his hands in his pockets
"This is just….", the blonde said, talking to herself. Her head was down, her hand upon her forehead, while she shook her head.
