Pairing Shidge fic title "Hard to Love"
“Hard to Love“
Pidge was practically livid when Shiro said he loves her back. Her confession was unwarranted and makeshift and honestly, she only did so because she thought they were going to die. But here they were, alive and well, well actually not well, but alive still and dating. Katie Holt is actually dating the Takashi Shirogane. It was almost out of a fairytale but it wasn’t. There was no happily ever after for them. Pidge never really felt like they were dating. Yeah, sure they were in an intergalactic spacewar. There wasn’t much time to do things but Shiro never opens up to her. He never tells her anything and she started feeling that maybe, he doesn’t trust her and maybe, he doesn’t really love her. Everything becomes too difficult and overbearing. It becomes suffocating and it becomes too hard to love him.
Takashi Shirogane honestly never expected to find himself in a relationship, with Pidge no less. It honestly felt like a dream to him, a dream he never wanted to be over. So he’s decided to let it stay that way, to let things stay happy, pure and innocent, to not let Pidge into the darkness in his heart and the cruelties he’s endured and those he’s executed. It was something he’s decided for the betterment of them both, or so he believes. But Pidge kept pressing, kept trying to pry open the door he’s locked, kept trying to get him to talk. And he begins to feel scared, that maybe if he begins talking, he’ll ruin everything, he’ll ruin her. Everything becomes too difficult and overbearing. It becomes suffocating and it becomes too hard to love her
