He stands still for a moment, fishing around in himself for the anger he felt earlier, the one that was briefly buried by following the script.

He finds it.

He grabs her by the chin, forcing her to look at him.

"What the hell was that? You think you can just ditch Class B like that? You think this is just something you can rewrite?"

He takes a breath.

"You will always be class B. You are never, ever going to belong on that stage."

She doesn't have the energy to resist the movement, nor to give him the mocking, sneering glare that he deserves right now.

"You don't know me at all."

Permalink

"I don't need to, because all of your desires are so disgustingly obvious."

Permalink

"Like yours aren't."

Permalink

"At least I'm not trying for something I'll never get."

Permalink

"Man, do you have to kick me when I'm down? If you're gonna, at least have the decency to use your fists instead of your words."

Permalink

"It just seems to me like you made a stupid decision, refuse to realize it was a stupid decision, and even now are very resistant to the idea that it might be a stupid decision. But sure, if now you'd like to start actually being friends, we could try it."

She groans and starts dragging herself toward the door.

Permalink

"Do you want any help with that?"

Permalink

She just growls and shakes her head, trying to crawl faster with little success.

Permalink

This is ridiculous. He grabs her.

"Come on, just take the help."

Permalink

"You were crystal clear about how much you wanted to 'help' me." She pulls weakly away.

Permalink

"Look, I just want to be friends. It's not my fault you've been mean to me, constantly."

Permalink

"I mean. It kind of is."

Permalink

"This is exactly what I mean. I haven't done anything, and you're somehow making it my fault that you're being an asshole."

Permalink

"You're intentionally choosing to be around me. I'm not saying anything to you that you haven't thought to yourself. And you're the one browbeating a girl who is lying helpless on the ground, bruised and bloodied. Take another look."

Permalink

"I offered you help and you refused it."

Permalink

"You're missing the point."

Permalink

"Fine. Explain it to me."

Permalink

"I just did, how are you so bad at listening to other people?"

Permalink

He turns a little red at that.

"I'm not."

Permalink

"No, you so completely are, that when you saw something happening out there that you didn't understand, you jumped directly to the only thing that made sense in your head. You're so self-centered that you refuse to even listen to me telling you that one, you're wrong, it's not that, and two, it'd be none of your business even if you were right. Turn that critical eye on yourself once in a while. Maybe I should let you get your own morning coffee."

Permalink

"Okay then, just be honest with me for a second about what actually happened, from the beginning."

He likes his morning coffee.

Permalink

"You were literally there." She's pouting. It's kind of cute.

Permalink

"Right, but clearly my interpretation isn't up to your standards. I want to hear it from you."
