Being in a couple is hard. And committing, making sacrifices; it’s hard. But if it’s the right person, then it’s easy. Looking at that girl and knowing she’s all you really want out of life, that should be the easiest thing in the world. And if it’s not like that, then she’s not the one.
Ever since the first day that I met you, I have felt… everything for you. And all this time, you were never able to say how you feel about me. And I get it… You can’t just be the guy who says how he feels.
Hayley Marshall (The Originals Season 2, Episode 14: I Love You, Goodbye)
I really do appreciate your hospitality and your friendship. I like being around you and hanging out. You’re way more fun than most of the people I know, but you also tease me more than anyone else I’ve ever met. I know I have a shitty reputation and I earned it. I know I always have a foot in my mouth, but can’t you see that I’m trying? I just wanna be considered valuable by my friends… This is the first slip in a while, but it’s a big one and it made me really uncomfortable. I forgive you for it, like I always do, but I feel like you were trying to get a reaction from me. And this wasn’t what you expected. You forgot that I’m fragile.
