My version of Hizashi’s dad has the scream, but he’s not a hero. He’s a detective who works long nights and the more tired/flustered/annoyed he gets the louder he gets and he doesnMt even realize it partially because most of his hearing is gone and the rest because he just…doesn’t realize it lmfao.
He and Hizashi sometimes talk super loud to each other and don’t simmer down till someone points out, hey, you’re /really fucking loud/.
He’s a super friendly guy sobs… Really proud of his son and everything he does.
Summary: Alexander Hamilton is an Omega, but no one else knows this. No one else can know this. Even in this day and age, Omegas are still treated as little more than slaves. No rights, no protections, nothing. Alex has to hide his rank from the world for this reason. John Laurens is an Alpha, but like Alexander, he is hiding his rank, ashamed of the Alpha he was born as. Lies stack upon lies upon more lies. How long before they all come crashing down?
Note: this is it, last chapter! I hope everyone enjoyed this story. Liar liar might be over, but I have a lot of stories still planned for the au, so don’t think this is the end forever :)
Recovery was always a process. 1 step forward and 2 steps back, as they say. 2 weeks time had passed since that day and things were.. slightly less complicated. Slightly. Confessions had been made that day pretty easily and Alex was still very…very embarrassed over what he did. It was out in the open now, at least. Alex was slowly getting better everyday with John. He wasn’t flinching as much when John reached to touch his arm or anything recently. It was progress, though. They started their lunch breaks again, though this time when they would walk back to work, they would hold hands. Alex was always the one to take John’s hand in his, but that was something already agreed upon by them. If anything was going to happen, it would be under Alex’s disgression. It was easier for Alex to adjust this way. It gave him the sense of needed control in his life.
Since that first kiss Alex and John partly considered themselves boyfriends, but this was a loose term still. It was more like they were experimenting. Alex had never really had a true relationship. Even the one with Eliza was more like they were friends who only really held hands and kissed a small handful of times. With John it was about that much too, but John would do other things for him as well on stressful days..like brushing his hair like Laf used to all the time.. going to Alex’s apartment and making him dinner after work..small things like that to show his affection. A small voice in his mind kept saying this was only because John was an Alpha wanting to take care of an Omega..but, still, some how Alex knew that wasn’t the case. There were days when Alex would only listen to that voice and it was hard to recover from that. They made it work, though. They managed to work around Alex’s fears while still helping him with them. Alex and John both knew that his life long distrust of Alpha’s wasn’t going to be ‘cured’ in a week’s or even a month’s time. Time would heal most wounds, though.
“Could you stay tonight..?” Alex asked softly one night after work, not looking away from where they had been watching TV on the couch. John hummed and nodded.
“If you want me to, sure” John replied, giving Alex’s arm a gentle, but reassuring, squeeze from where his arm was around the Omega.
“With me?” Alex asked and John almost choked on the air as he was breathing in. John had spent the night on the couch before, but never since Alex’s heat had he stayed anytime with Alex in his bed. This was one of these days where Alex was taking a leap forward after losing a few steps of progress. John knew he probably should insist on staying on the couch, but this wasn’t a time to argue with Alex.
“As..long as it’s alright with you, Al” John murmured, leaning down to give Alex a soft kiss to the top of his head.
The next hour was spent watching the rest of the comedy movie they had found earlier that night. Both of them grabbed a shower and before long they were both laying down, Alex in a loose t-shirt and boxers and John in a tank top and pajama pants.
“If this isn’t okay I can just-” John was shut up by the lips against his own, practically melting from it.
“John. Shut up and go to sleep.” Alex murmured and rolled over, his back pressed to John’s chest. John seemed to relax a bit, but hesitated as he lightly wrapped his arm around Alex.
“Is this alright..?” He asked quietly and Alex hummed his approval. They both knew this wasn’t going to be a normal thing they did, but they enjoyed the moment while it lasted.
“I love you..” Alex murmured and they both felt their hearts beating faster.
“I love you too..” John replied, kissing the top of his head once more.
Even though there was a possibility that Alex would be afraid to let John near him in a day or more time, this moment right here reminded them that healing takes time and patience..and things do get better in the end.
