rae x nolan


Watching him play is like watching a transformation take place. Music allows him to turn his secrets into lyrics; it allows him to speak of his grief, his anger, his love in a way that he cannot express with just words.

She holds her own words at the tip of her tongue as she studies him, her fingers fidgeting tirelessly as though trying to mimic the deft movements of his own. She has questions for him; answers that he owes her, but right now it can wait because it’s just them and the music, and if there is anything she knows is that she is good at being patient.

Happy, happy birthday to my favorite lady dreamtheft


“Give me one good reason why I shouldn’t take this gun and kill you with it.” He snarls, and she thinks that she is going to die here and now as he threatens for her to spill all of her secrets, and she wants to laugh because nothing could be more fitting than this.

What he doesn’t know is that she is strong and she has a will to survive, in fact he doesn’t know her at all as she slowly turns her gaze towards where he has crouched in front of her, blood lust dancing behind endless, dark eyes. “Because if you kill me, then it will be only a matter of time before they come for you and kill you too.” She watches the disbelief and uncertainty flood his features, and she realizes how relieved she is to know she has his attention, even if it is the bare minimum. “You need me.”

“You can stop trying to hide from me, I kept my end of the deal.” He calls out loud enough for her to hear, watching as she slowly pokes her head out to look him over, as if sizing him up. She is leery as she moves out of hiding and slinks closer to him, her expression sheepish, distrusting. “A promise is a promise then?” He nods curtly, ushering her to follow him, jaw setting in annoyance. “A promise is a promise, you’re safe with me.”
