Confessing to Finn that you've been avoiding intimacy with him because you don't feel like you're pretty/in shape enough for him..his reaction? (I love Sins of the Father btw..excellent writing!)
You’re confused. Show him what?
“The parts about you that you don’t like about yourself.”
You freeze for a moment. You were afraid of that.
Here’s the thing: he’s not dumb or blind. Finn has been around you long enough to know the tells. The places your hands and arms go first when you’re nervous or embarrassed, as if to protect them.
You still hesitate though. He tries again. “It’s just me, love. I would never judge you. I’ve wanted you for too long for that. And there isn’t a part of you that I don’t think is beautiful. Please…just trust me on this. Show me.”
With that, you feel your protective walls crumbling a bit.
You remove your clothes - only fair since he’s already in his boxer briefs - and you show him everything you don’t like about yourself.
Every place you point, he places a soft, tender kiss there. And he whispers how beautiful it is, how soft, how unique. He does this to every part of you that you hate, as if paying tribute to a deity.
As your walls come crashing down soundlessly, your tears fall the same way.
And once he dries those, he spends the rest of his time worshiping and praising you like the goddess you are.
