Except, no, he wouldn't. People only liked him when he wanted them to like him, only trusted him when he wanted them to trust him, only tolerated him when he wanted them to tolerate him. Genuine interactions were next to impossible, so why not double down on making sure that reactions were what he wanted and what he needed when the situation demanded it? Especially the situation that he'd pulled Mark out of.
"What would you have done? If I'd told you that Dr. B had sent me in because I was the only one who was able to get past security, that time travel girl had dragged your mind out just so I wouldn't have to carry dead weight?" Damien asked, the words coming out a bit more defensive than they needed to be when he wasn't the one who was dealing with things. "Because I know what you would have fucking done. You would have said thanks and been on your way, and that was fine when I didn't..." Damien stopped, letting out a strangled growl before pulling the phone back from his face as he tried to take a few breaths to calm himself down.
"Your darling sister told me that she didn't know about anyone with my ability, that she'd never heard of anything like it before, and the one thing I asked her to help me with was to find someone who could do what I could do, who would understand what it was like, and she... The whole time, she knew exactly what you could do, and she lied to me. She sent me into that place to do her goddamn dirty work, and she didn't have the decency to tell me the one thing I had wanted to hear for forever. No, I had to find it out from Agent Asshole," Damien said, a heavy strain in the words. "I wasn't thinking about what it would do to you, okay? I was just thinking about how it was what she deserved, having something she'd put so much time and effort into achieving stripped away from her by the actions of one individual. It seemed like fair play."
Sighing, Damien leaned back against the chair he was in, looking up at the ceiling of the room. There were so many answers that he could give to Mark's last question, but there was one that just jumped out at him immediately. "Anyone?" Damien suggested. "It's not like you're lacking for options, Mark. And essentially texting people isn't dangerous."
