" Sometimes I wonder why you stay with me."
her whisper leaves pins over his skin; a mixture of
both intoxication of her and a slight guilt that picks away at his mind.
for if she wonders why he stays with her, the answer is rather simple.
he is protecting her from the organization he has sworn allegiance to.
no matter the real reason why he is here.
and sometimes i wonder why
you let me.
this was the third time this week cobra commander has
requested to see aurora, and it was concerning snake eyes very
much. not to mention she hasn’t offered him proof that the commander
is hurting her. it was possible that he wasn’t, but you suspect the
worst when the worst people are involved.
so this time, snake would go in with her
something he should have done a long time ago.
after snake eyes dismisses the excess guards that trailed behind
them, he turns his head towards her, gaze heavy on her from
behind the mask;
but i hope that you will continue
to let me.
and before they enter the commander’s office, snake
raises his hand and begins to form words, and with having
these past few weeks teaching her, he knew she would
understand. so he asks: is there something you want to tell me?
