Roll With It.
Basile mused over Miyu's statement as he sipped again at his drink, nearing half empty... he should probably slow down... Nah. If Miyu thought it was admirable to live in the ghetto for Cinder's sake, let her think it. Not like it hurt anyone, Right? To his somewhat shame, he couldn't help the blood that rushed to his face as Miyu went on. He was used to flirting and teasing, honest compliments? Much less so and it showed. Basile coughed into his hand as he spoke "That's nice of you to say Miyu, Thank you." He said kindly, taking the compliment in the spirit it was given.
He smiled genuinely as Miyu laughed, He'd never felt like a comedian. But as he'd come to realise as he'd hung out with Miyu he'd become something of a maverick. Before meeting Miyu he'd have never bothered being outgoing or sociable, he certainly wouldn't have gone out on dates... odds are he'd have stayed stagnant, looking down on others and deeming them not worth his time. It was funny how a single meeting could alter a persons trajectory so much. Though, his smile grew slightly as he realised he wouldn't change it for anything.
His face grew warm as she started staring into his eyes playing with her hair, Basile realised he was flustered. Was she doing it on purpose? Nah, Couldn't be. Coughing into his hand again he spoke, trying to get back on track " Not much else happened after that, she returned and started giving me whole "where were you at X" nonsense, to which I said "Where's my lawyer?" and she looked ready to rip out my throat. After a few "wonderful" hours in her company, she gets a call from her commanding officer basically saying "You got the wrong guy, genius". I get three half-assed apologies that they didn't mean and had to walk all the way back to my house."
"But enough about our valiant polices general incompetence, tell me about you, what adventures have you been on since we last spoke? Basile spoke, happy enough to get onto a happier topic. He smiled towards Miyu as he waited, staring right back into her eyes.
Cinder listened patiently as Bloom spoke, she'd done a lot of talking so it only seemed fair that Cinder reciprocated. Cinder... couldn't help the feeling of disappointment as Bloom disagreed with her. Maybe it was her own fault for trying to change someone so different to herself. Maybe Bloom would learn in time what she was trying to say? Cinder could only hope as she kept thinking about that moment. The sand under her paws, the harsh sun glaring down on her, her own ragged breathing as her chest heaving. The Blinding Light of the bolt as it tore through her tamer and hearing his agonised scream and subsequent collapse. She couldn't help the rush of hate that flooded through her as she watched that scene over and over.
She was shook out of her memories as Bloom touched her. As a general rule, Cinder didn't like to be touched... but she could really use someone right now. She wouldn't hug the plant digimon, but the wordless support was nice. Bloom immediately ruined the moment by speaking. "I shouldn't beat myself up? learn from my mistakes? That wasn't a 'mistake'. I was powerless until my Tamer got cut down, what if it had been an ultimate or mega level digimon that had done that? My tamer would be dead." Cinder barked out in a half hysteric voice though she was still making a clear effort to be quiet.
"He doesn't hate me, the idiot doesn't know how to hate" Cinder said in a small voice "You think I haven't tried? I can't stop this feeling, It just is. Every time I digivolve I see that moment. That monster hurting him and that crushing feeling of weakness." Cinder only paused here to wipe her face with her hand. "It doesn't matter. If these feelings mean Basile is safe in the Digital World and I never have to see that again, then I'll accept that. I can live with that." Cinder Finished, the guilt leaking into her voice throughout her tirade.
