How about ❝It amused me to make you ashamed of it.❞ with merlahad? Plz? :3
“It amused me to make you ashamed of it.”
Lachlan’s hands clench underneath the table, but he forces his face to remain impassive, although he’s sure it hides nothing from Harry.
It’s barely a word, hissed out from behind clenched teeth.
“Because I’m a fool. Because I couldn’t admit to myself how I felt and it was easier to pretend I was like the rest of these pricks. I’ve grown up pretending to be just like everyone else, and part of that has always been to find someone else who was even more different than myself.”
Lachlan stands up so quickly his chair falls backwards and clatters against the floor. “Ye will never pass as a gentleman, Harry Hart, but ye deserve this lot. Congrats, the position of Galahad is yours. I withdraw.”
His hands are shaking as he walks away, and he wonders why his chest hurts so much more now that he knows how Harry truly feels.
