“Getting out is much easier than getting in the first time.” Newt told you with a small grin, “I should have told you there were steps to get down, I hadn’t meant for you to fall in the way you did.” His voice was sincere and gentle to your ears as he walked into the small cottage like abode and picked up his peacock colored jacket. Even in the dim light of the room, it was still a rather vibrant color and really popped in front of your eyes. “I hope you didn’t get hurt falling.”

You shook your head no, watching as Newt slid the jacket over his slender shoulders and straightened it. He then began bouncing around, picking things up that he figured he’d need while out.  “I didn’t, I just kind of… tumbled.” You gestured with your hands, moving them up and then down as your motion for ‘tumbling’.

He laughed quietly, giving you a rather toothy grin as he offered to you, “I can help you get out, if you’d feel better. I’d hate for you to lose your footing and ‘tumble’ back in.” Heat hit your cheeks as he said this, slightly embarrassed now. It was obvious that you weren’t going to live that down, least for the moment. But, that’s okay. Newt had a soft way of teasing, and it made you laugh. “It’s sort of difficult to get out if you’re not used to it. I suppose… It’s much like going up stairs though.”

“I’d appreciate your help regardless of how easy it is.” You finally managed to murmur, playing with your fingers as he stopped in front of you and graze his hand against your cheek.

“Off we go then.” Newt stepped to the side, towards the exit. “I’ll climb out and help you from up there, alright?”

“Just don’t let me fall.” You said with a cheeky grin.

“The only falling I intend to let you do is fall completely and madly in love.” Newt retorted and began climbing out. Rolling your eyes at his wonderfully executed response, you began watching him rather intently. You could only imagine how his back muscles looked while he hiked his body up the slight ladder until he was completely out of the case. “Alright then, come on up.” Newt informed you, crouching down in front of the case. He peered in with curious green eyes and caught  

You gazed up and nodded, your hand landing on the wood before lifting yourself up a few steps. It felt sort of unsteady, as you weren’t used to climbing and your additional, minor fear of falling may have scooted its way back into your mind. “It’s alright,” Newt muttered, reaching in and grabbing your hands. The security of his grip helped. “I’ve got you. Just move up.” And so you did. One foot in front of the other, and before you knew it, you were stepping over the seam of the suitcase in front of Newt who was all smiles. “Was that so bad?” He inquired in a cute voice.

“I could have done it by myself.” You chuckled and bit your bottom lip, looking at him. “I just wanted to see if you’d actually help me or not.”

Raising a hand, he tucked back some of your hair and let his fingers linger there for a moment. “I’d help you with anything, if you asked.” He was fast to move, bending down to lock his case before picking it up, “I’d help even if you didn’t ask simply because I love you and I didn’t want you to slip.”

“You’re too good for me.” You smiled lovingly, reaching forward and straightening Newt’s waistcoat. “You do know that, right?”

“I certainly do not.” Newt looked down at your fingers now resting on the buttons of his vest, “Being too good would be me offering my services to help you back into the case when the time comes.” He grasped your fingers and held them softly, “So you, my love, don’t fall back in again.”

“Are you going to?” You questioned breathlessly and grinned.

“Of course.” Lifting your hand, he gave a delicate kiss to your fingertips and finished with, “I can’t let you fall for something that isn’t going to catch you.”
