Re: Call: Holly NW/Noah NW
[Firmly.] Noah, baby, I wasn't saying it was like that. [And he wasn't thinking it, either, but it does make his anger spike now, you know? To think about it.] I mean bad, like, you were scared or whatever and had to run away. [Which probably makes it clear that Holly didn't get the full dose of feelings here, or anywhere, really.] I just hate the thought of you being so fucking small and having to run like that. [And maybe he's being an unforgiving asshole, but all he can remember is the bile and vom at the thought that someone could do that, could sit in a closet while someone raped the person they loved.] That isn't messing up, Noah. That's so fucking beyond messing up.
