Notes: Reaction to Rina’s Freedom.
Okay, this is not quite what I expected. I figured he’d wake up, freak about our little situation and blame me. Check. Then I’d calm him down and he’d disentangle us. No check. The kinky bastard actually likes this. Which is something we’re definitely going to have to explore some time when we know there won’t be any interruptions, but that’s beside the point at the moment. I think. He confuses the hell out of me at times.
"Aren’t you afraid of being strangled if we get startled or something?" I ask after he tells me he wants to stay like this for a little while. He shakes his head at me. He picks the strangest times not to be paranoid. But yeah, his head’s on my shoulder and his hand on my chest, and it is pretty good. I wouldn’t mind staying like this for a year or two.
And from what he’s told me, this is pretty new to him too. I think he has even worse luck with relationships than I do. We both have ways of keeping people at a distance; his are just more annoying than mine. Though he says I’m worse on the rare (drunken!) occasions that we talk about stuff like that.
I think it’s going to work for us though. I like having him here with me, and he obviously likes being here too. Just one thing I should clarify.
"You know, Rodney, I’d lie here with you even if we weren’t tied together."
