53, 60, and 78 with Kraglin!
53: who cares about what they think? 60: you look like you could use a hug 78: you’re worth itGOTG vol 2 spoilers It had been a while since Yondu had died. You hadn’t been very close to the Centurion but Kraglin had. You knew things still hurt and that he had lost almost everyone in a few days time. You knew that despite being part of your crew now that he still missed that old life. You were looking for him at the moment. Peter had asked you to give him something. You had checked the control room and the cantina and still hadn’t found him. You were standing outside the door to his room now and you hesitated for a second. You had never been in his room since he joined you guys. You didn’t know why but it seemed like a big step. You had developed feelings for the tall lanky space pirate. You didn’t know how he felt at all so you were admittedly a little nervous. You finally got up the nerve and knocked on the door. “Come in.” A somewhat shaky voice called out. You opened the door and stepped in seeing Kraglin sitting on the bed with his head in his hands. You frowned walking over to his bed. You stood in front of him your hand wavering in front of you as you debated on putting a hand on his shoulder. “You look like you could use a hug.” You said softly looking down at him. He looked up at you his eyes watery. You felt a rush of pain fill your chest as you watched his face. He looked away before nodding. You paused for a moment before wrapping your arms around him pulling him into your chest. He wrapped his arms around you hiding his face as he let go. You felt his body shake as he finally let out at the pain from losing everyone. You held him letting him cry and rubbing his back. “It’s okay. I’m here.” You whispered over and over. He cried a while longer before slowly calming down. His body stopped shaking and his breathing calmed. He pulled back after a while wiping his face with a large hand. You pulled back looking down at him before sitting next to him. “I’m sorry.” He finally said after a minute. “Hey. Don’t be. You need to let this stuff out. And I’ll be here to hold you.” You said a little shaky. A small smile seemed to spread and he looked over st you. He moved a hand on top of yours and you turned yours over wrapping your fingers around his large hand. He squeezed back looking away awkwardly. “Ya know…. if ya wanted…. ya can stay… for a while.” He managed to get out after a bit of mumbling. You smiled at him even though he couldn’t see it. You pushed your shoulder against his side nudging him a little. He turned to look at his own tired face shifting to a smile. You stared for a second before taking a breath. It was now or never. You couldn’t wait and with your hand in his you felt a rush of courage. “I could stay here tonight…. if you wanted. Just in case you know… you need me again.” You suggested a shy smile on your face. Kraglin seemed taken back a bit by that. He let a smile cross his face for a moment. He nodded his head maybe a little too excited. He stopped though after a second and his brows furrowed. “But… they other guys might start ta talk.” He said gesturing to the door. “Who cares what they think?” You huffed out grinning at him. He smiled again squeezing your hand. The two of you talked for a while. He told you stories about his days as a Ravager and you told him stories about being a Nova Corp officer. The two of talked until it got to be pretty late. You hung on every word he said his slurred accent making it seem so much more interesting. You stood up though needing to go grab your pajamas. Kraglin stood too looking at you for a moment. “Don’t leave… please?” He asked. “I’m just going to get my pajamas.” You laughed a little. He blushed for a second before turning around and digging in a drawer. He handed you one of his shirts and a loose pair of pants you realized must be extra pajamas. You took them smiling before going into the bathroom to change. When you came back out he was in his pajamas too. He was sitting in the bed and you jumped in next to him making him laugh. He tentatively wrapped an arm around your waist pulling you down to the bed with him. It was your turn to laugh as he pulled you close. He nuzzled you close and you snuggled into him. He was studying your face intently. “Why’d ya wanna stay?” He asked you finally as the two of you got settled. “Because you’re worth it. No matter what.” You admitted leaning up and kissing his lips softly.
