RATING: General | GENRE: Hurt/Comfort | WORD COUNT: 1,092 SUMMARY: You slowly find yourself accepting Gladio’s company.
“I’m fine,” you insist, but the way your voice cracks at the end suggests that you’re not. Afraid of breaking down in front of the tall and mighty Shield before you, you take a sharp turn on your heel to leave with a huff; however, you don’t get far. You’ve barely taken a step away when Gladio grasps your wrist with his firm hands, his grip unrelenting yet not exactly forceful either as he keeps you in place.
“I’m not,” you bark in return while keeping your back turned to him, struggling to get your wrist free. But Gladio is much more powerful than you, and you know there’s no way you’re going to be able to free yourself unless the man allows it.
“You are,” he states, as though it wasn’t obvious enough already. His voice is even and determined, but his heart aches to see you refusing his help when it was something you needed, even if you didn’t admit it yourself. Gladio allows his hand to slide down from your wrist, and he spreads your fingers apart with his own so that he can interlock them together. His hand is warm, and it causes your resolve to crumble even more.
Introverted Thinking (Ti): Kalinda keeps all of her thoughts locked up behind an impassive and stoic expression. She’s fiercely private and the other characters know little about her personal life. However, Kalinda is undeniably intelligent and can make deductions based on the evidence provided in front of her. This serves her well as the in-firm private investigator.
Extroverted Sensing (Se): Kalinda loves the physical thrill of her job. She eagerly participates in the legwork of physically observing and analyzing other people. Not to mention Kalinda’s many sexual affairs, be it with Alicia’s ex-husband or Lana. She serves a perfect role within the firm as their enforcer.
Introverted Intuition (Ni): While not her strongest function, Kalinda has some desire to bring about her inner dreams. She can predict and plan human behavior quite well and can make inferences resulting in accurate advice to Alicia.
Extroverted Feeling (Fe): With her endless poker face and preference for lashing out physically as an alternative, Kalinda doesn’t use her emotions frequently. She has a very misanthropic nature and cynical opinion of humanity, likely as a result of betrayal in the past.
Alright. Now that my third OC blog is setup, I’ll be less distracted, and should be able to tackle my drafts on Skye’s account, then Elfie’s. I know I owe a few of you from forever ago, and I apologize for being such a slug. I promise I still love y'all, my brain is just creatively scattered to hell and back lately, so I’m gonna get on that soon! Thanks for being patient.
