"And that scar on your back?" - "What?" - "I would like to see it..."
She stared at him in disbelief; her cheeks started to flush as she tried to fight with the urge to give him a slap over his hand.
"You are crazy," she uttered and looked away, feeling the heat radiating from her whole face.
"I... didn´t mean it that way..." he sighed, shaking his head. "It´s okay. Forget it, I´m sorry."
She looked back at him, a bit hesitant. But she takes his hand and gently squeezes it.
"It´s okay." she smiles; he hesitantly smiled back at her.
"Baby steps, right?" - "Uh-huh." the girl nods, her gaze pinned towards the city silhouette. There was that strange aura around it, and nobody could ever put the finger on it. That distant noise it made was almost non-existent here.
"So..." he started but didn´t manage to finish. "So....?" the girl raised her eyebrows and measured him with her eyes. He bites his lower lip and takes a deep breath in.
"What are you...?!!!" she started panicking and it showed clearly in her eyes - the shock... and fear.
"I´m just trying to..." he pulled his shirt over his head. "No! Leave me alone, you....!" she tried to hurt him, but he catches her hand and presses it against his naked chest. She froze... and after a few heartbeats...
"I didn´t mean it that way. I´m just trying to show you...."
Her eyes widen, her breath was taken aback by what she saw.
"I..." her body softens, so as her gaze. "I´m so sorry." her voice broke, fingers tracing the scar on his chest, loosen up in his arms.
"It´s okay." he planted a kiss in her hair. "I just wanted to let you know... that you are not alone. Not anymore."
