It’s a little hard to have “lady friends” when the last time I was in a relationship I had to watch her die. He shrugged a little, looking at his hands It’s been centuries, but still….haven’t had much but flings every few decades when I ended up drunk.
He chuckled at himself, forcing himself to come out of his thoughts Do you want christmas stuff up? I probably have some somewhere.
He rubbed the back of his head, not knowing better than to bring it up or what to say. That’s… rough. I’m sorry. He pushed his hand into his pocket to feel the wedding ring that he always kept there now, this being the first time that he sincerely thought about the fact that he’d probably never see her again.
He lifted his head at the other, trying to bring back his own smile. Yeah, that would be great. I know someone who might enjoy helping put some stuff up if you wouldn’t mind me havin’ a friend over. It’s like her first Christmas, so I wanted to do somethin’ special fer her.
