Request: I love your stories so much! If it is no trouble I was wondering if you could write a newtxreader where the reader feels like she has been a burden to Newt and it gets to the point when she leaves when he isn’t noticing? And then he comes to find her? Really angsty please? Thanks!

The pot clatters to the ground, breaking open and sending black dirt rolling across the floor. Newt cranes his head around from where he’s working. He watches the shrivelfig bounce across the ground and ricochet off his boot.
Wiping his hands on a towel, he leans down and lifts it. “Efficient.”
You return his grin with your own half-hearted smile as you turn to grab a broom.
Newt notices your insincerity. “You okay, love?”
Your back to Newt, you nod. “Fine.”
He focuses back on the potion in front of him. “You sure?”
“Positive,” you murmur. Guilt tugs at you. You don’t like lying to Newt, but this isn’t his problem.
You go to sweep up the spilled dirt, but before you can even touch a grain of it with the broom, it starts spinning around. The pieces of the pot reassemble themselves, and the dirt shoots back into the mended pot. Newt doesn’t need to look at you for you to know he’s smiling.
“No need for the broom, love, I’ve got it.”
You stare at the clean ground, unmoving. Of course you’d mess up and break something Newt needed. Of course he’d need to clean up after you.
“Everything okay?” The nonchalant question comes from over his shoulder as he stirs the mixture.
