“I'm not perfect.”

“I don't want you to be.” Tears rolled down her cheeks as she struggled to contain herself. She couldn't lose control, not here, not when being in check mattered the most.

“You deserve someone..better.” He stuck his hands in his pockets, as if afraid she was going to reach out and take his hands. “Someone good for you.”

“You'll never get it, will you? You're the best thing that's ever happened to me.” She crossed her arms, shivering slightly from the cold. “I don't want to be without you. Ever.”

“Stop it.” His voice rang loud and cold. He was suddenly grateful that they were alone, for the words that were tempted to come out of his mouth was definitely not appropriate. “I...”

“You're afraid to love me, aren't you?” She took a step towards him, watching him shudder violently. “You're afraid to let people in, to let them know the real you. You're scared that someone actually sees past this and loves you!”
