Despite it all, Consti couldn’t help but raise his head and smile sadly up at her. With another sniff he said, “And..,” he swallowed, “… a-and I love you, too, m-my love. D-Do please forgive me. Do forgive me….”
Ha-ha! Fooled you again! I’m gonna try and be like that more often… indefinitely. *winks*
Consti only sniffed, his two hands still cupping Nat’s cheeks, albeit weakly… as if they might drop down to his knees at any moment. His head hung so low that his chin almost touched his chest, and great pearly tears dripped down his face. Any attempts to hold the tears in had been futile. He let them fall, not even bothering to wipe them away; almost glad, for once, to not care enough to hold his emotions in.
*smiles in return* Awww…. Well, y-you are most welcome, Sir! (Or… M-Madame?) I do love smiles and putting them on people. Eheheh.
HA! The joke’s on you. I’m always like that.
"A-And… and I will always love you!" he said, cupping her face in his hands. "I just… I-I wish I could be a better person for you…." He hung his head, feeling horrible, his two hands still cupping her cheeks.
"No…. N-No. I did this! I did it…," he burst out, moving away from her suddenly to bury his face in his hands. "I crushed your hopes… your dreams… of being with me… and of having a baby. I…. N-No one should ever do that! Ever! I’m so sorry, Nat. I’m so, so sorry!!"
