“I can’t believe I’m the first! That’s nice~” He grinned, laughter spilling from his lips. “Obvious to everyone! It’s nice having cheeks like that— I know a couple people who do, but I think they look the best on you.”
"I don’t think it’s obvious to e-everyone.." Oh gosh. She didn’t want everyone noticing her, especially not just because of her face. Which was weird, since she was a model, but hey, she was a fairly shy model for a little company. "Thank you-!!" How kind of him~
“Has no one ever told you that before?” He laughed, speaking as if it was the most obvious thing. Kai grinned, and he pulled his hand back, sensing that she didn’t want him to do it. “How is that weird? I was just stating the obvious!”
"Nope!!" She let out a small giggle, looking up at him. He really was rather strange, though it wasn’t necessarily a bad thing.. "You’re the first-" She never would have thought her cheeks would get compared to dumplings.. "Ob-obvious to.. Who??"
Usually, Tyler didn’t like it all that much when his hair was touched. But he didn’t mind so much when Aimi did it. He liked it, even. “I know, but I’ve done some.. really bad stuff.” Stuff you would probably hate me for, he finished in his head, not even able to look at her. But finally his gaze met hers again, and he sighed, raising his eyebrows. “Well, I certainly hope so, at least. I don’t know.. I’m just a kid, I don’t know what the hell I’m doing with this stuff..”
If he told her, she’d make an effort never to do it again. She doesn’t want to do anything that would ever make him uncomfortable or unhappy, she doesn’t want to be another source of stress, not when she already fears so much that she is. She shook her head before looking at him. “There is nothing you could do that could be that bad.” He could tell her he had outright killed her parents and ruined her life and she’d still love him. Ok.. Maybe she’d be slightly terrified and upset at him if he said that, but the gist of it was that if he had blood on his hands, so be it, she was in love with a murderer. She offered a small laugh. “As if anyone knows what they’re doing in this wide, wide world~”
No, she still wasn’t understanding. At least, from what he could tell. He shook his head softly. “No, Aimi..” he took her face gently in his hands. “I mean.. I love you. Not only just care about you, which of course I do, but..” What was another way he could put it? And why did she find it so hard to believe. Was it because she was blind? He couldn’t care less, there were things so much worse.. She could be bitter and unkind because of her blindness, but she wasn’t. She had the most beautiful personality he had ever come across. “Aimi, I don’t just love you, I’m in love with you. Do you understand what I’m telling you?”
She lifted her face towards him, slightly confused noise escaping her lips. Love?? Loved.. Her? Why would he do something stupid like that..? She wasn’t anything special, she didn’t have anything that she could give him, she wasn’t even whole. She was flawed, but even more than normal people were, more than just sins and small faults, she couldn’t even function properly. Her eyes are tearing up and she doesn’t understand, why is this happening? This is so horrible, she can’t do that, she can’t possibly do that to him. She can’t possibly ask him to love her. No matter how happy it would make her, he doesn’t deserve to be pulled down by someone of the likes of her. “W-Why..?” She doesn’t want him to have a reason. Maybe if he doesn’t have a reason, he doesn’t actually like her, right??
Tyler’s lips tugged downward into a small frown. It wouldn’t be a waste to spend time sleeping - not at all. And he didn’t want to keep her up if she was tired. It would be bad for her health. “How about if I asked this: If I wasn’t in the situation I’m in, and I could spend every waking day with you, would you have told me ‘yes’ when I asked if you were tired?” He gave her a somewhat stern look. This was something that he noticed happened a lot, and he felt he needed to put his foot down this time - even if it was very gently.
She didn’t hate sleeping, she didn’t even dislike it. Only now, at this time, she didn’t want to be even a moment away from him. She knew it wasn’t good for her health, and she’d get plenty of sleep afterwards!! Just.. Couldn’t she stay with him for at least now?? She looked down, releasing a soft sigh. He knows the answer already, doesn’t he? “. . Perhaps..” She would. She knows she’s tired now, and it isn’t that she doesn’t realize it, it’s just that.. A few more minutes with him seems like a better option..
Tyler noticed the tired way in which she glanced to the side. It was only then that he realized how late it was really getting - and after all the emotions he must have put her through, he figured she must be getting tired. He placed his hands on her cheeks, pressing a kiss against her forehead. “It’s getting late, are you tired?” he asked. “Do you just want to go to bed, sweetheart?”
She was exhausted, but at the same time, she was conflicted about going to bed. This was the precious time she got to spend with Tyler, it almost felt like a waste to spend it sleeping. She rested her head against him, letting out a small sigh. “Maybe..” . She’s missed him so much.. Maybe they could just take a nap together.
