“It’s rather telling, is it not?“ Killian goes on, leaning his forearms against the wooden railing. "That your beloved spends his days gutting your family.”
Ariel clicks her tongue in frustration, finally tearing her gaze away from her prince and turning to Killian. “It’s not his fault; Belle told me that Regina was responsible for the curse, and that she was the one to turn him into…”
She trails off, eyes back on Eric. He digs his knife into the stomach of a fish, slicing upwards in one smooth motion. The innards tumble out onto the workbench as Ariel lets out a small groan.
“Yes, our dear Regina has a wonderful sense of humor,” Killian says dryly.
“This is all Belle’s doing, isn’t it?” Ariel sighs angrily. “I mentioned it to her once and she thinks I need help.”
“Ah,” he grins in triumph, shaking his finger towards her. “So it does bother you!”
She ignores that. “And I don’t know why she asked for your assistance.”
“I’m doing you a favour, Ariel, so you can stop glaring at me whenever you like.”
“A favour?” Ariel chuckles. “What’s in it for you? You never do anything unless there’s something in it for you.”
Killian clutches at his heart quite melodramatically. “You wound me. Though,” he smirks, “not as much as Eric is wounding your cousin over there. Or is it a brother?”
Ariel hits him in the arm again, and Killian just laughs.
lewy is Dramatic af sometimes but rlly every time he goes down i have about three heart attacks on average thinking about the possibility that hes actually injured and how we still dont gave a backup striker!!!
@ripplestitchskein I swear, I’m doing the dumb thing with it where I’ve fallen behind because I love it so fucking much that I want to read it when I can just bask fully and not have to worry about someone coming in to interrupt me at work or home? I’m currently having the same problem with catching up on @qqueenofhades’s The Dark Horizon.
Like I want to create an atmosphere around reading it in the same way you create an atmosphere through it?
I cannot believe I take the perfectionist/procrastination dynamic this fucking far, but ~*WeLcOmE 2 mY tWiStEd MiNd*~
honestly leave ppl be sometimes like.. like if someone is conceptualising their being in a certain way n that makes sense for them n their life n helps them understand themself and if it’s like, not hurting u or any1 else like. just leave it alone sometimes surely i s2g ?
