“Would you leave me alone already.” You say in annoyed tone when Bjorn follows you outside. Somehow he always had to get mixed up in your problems and it was beginning to bother you. You could take care of yourself just fine.

“No I’m going to stay.”

“Seriously I could have handled that on my own, I don’t need you to protect me all the time.”

“I know.”

“Really because it does not look like you do.”

You pick up a training sword nearby and face him. If he insisted on protecting you he should prove himself first. You knew he could fight but so could you. Bjorn tilts his head, giving you a doubtful look before getting a sword himself.

“Really? You know I’ll win.”

“Oh you did not just say that.” You growl angrily and storm towards him while raising your sword. You’re not bad but he’s better. He has you lying on the ground in no time, hovering above you with a satisfied grin.

“See? Told you so.”

You jump off the ground and angrily stomp away. He really, really got on your nerves sometimes. Today was one of these days.

“Shut up…asshole.” You mumble as you walk away. Bjorn catches your wrist before you can leave and pulls you back.

“The sun could burn out, and the whole world could die, but I’d still be utterly in love with you.”

“W-what?”

“I love you, idiot. Why do you think I insist on watching out for you.” He gives you a genuine smile this time, not the smug face from before.

“I…”

“Yes I know…you love me too.” He says before pulling you in for a kiss.
