Betty pulls her back into her arms, settling into the couch and just clinging to each other. “I got you,” she whispers into Veronica’s dark hair, dropping a kiss to the crown of her forehead. The memory and echo of countless times before this of when both have whispered the words to each other, a solid reassurance and promise that no matter what happened neither would have to face it alone.
They spend the night huddled together on the couch, sharing a bottle of wine and take out. Veronica puts on the office and they talk about their day. Betty is grateful to have such a strong woman in her life and she feels closer to Veronica than she ever has. This was the breakthrough they needed, both seemingly walking on eggshells regarding the accident, but now it was all out there.
Sometime later, Betty on the verge of falling asleep, she hears Veronica whisper, half asleep herself, “I love you, B.”
Betty mumbles something out that sounds like “love you too” but she can’t be sure. Veronica just places a kiss to her hair and settles back against Betty. She knows, without a doubt, this is where she wants to be.
Coming up from behind, and the outside - I know Rossi’s the GOAT, but even he doesn’t have eyes in the back of his head (despite the occasional helmet design suggesting otherwise). There’s no footage that shows how much/if Rossi was slowing, but his corner speed wouldn’t suggest he was taking a cruise-lap.
so i saw this post by @parttimedragon and all i could think of was the awkward moment as my now rep-aligned agent, adrian, answers the door with a bowl of cereal in his hands like “…don’t let me stop you……?”
i looked at so many guys laughing with bowls of salad for this… @.@
