The next time someone ask me why I prefer Rowan over Chaol I’ll just refer to the first time they saw Aelin’s scars. I mean Chaol just looked down at her and actually asked what she did to deserve those, like there was nothing wrong with that. While Rowan (even being the asshole he was back then) recognized
that a girl that young shouldn’t go through that kind of stuff and was genuinely disturbed .
I know there are a lot of other reasons but this one… it’s just stuck in my head
Gods, she had no interest in him like that (HA), and she was certain he had no inclination to take her to his bed, either (HAHA). Maybe it wasn’t just from spending so much time in her Fae body (HAHAHA) that she still felt… Territorial (HAHAHAHA).
