Past Laurent becomes more agreeable and stops actively trying to kill Damen though he continues to show his claws and Damen continues to be helplessly charmed. Laurent begins taking swordfighting lessons from the man he’s intending to fight; this makes sense in his own head, how better to prepare? And he has a discrepancy now, in his head, between Damen (who he has met here in the future), and Damianos (who killed his brother). If he spoke of this to Damen, Damen would tell him he is one and the same, but Laurent does not speak of it.
OK, so I don't know if I have depression or not. Because, honestly, I can have great days. Sometimes, great weeks! But, normally, I find myself constantly degrading myself and believing that no one cares. Even though I KNOW my friends and family care (in my head), it just doesn't feel like that, in my heart. You know what I mean? Almost like I'm trying to convince myself that nobody cares about me?? But I'm being resistant about it at the same time? Sorry, it probably doesn't make any sense!
