Re: in-person: Holly NW/Noah NW
The want was mad mutual, and Noah knew that. Yeah, Noah knew that, down to his core. And maybe it shouldn't've been intimate, like, the absolute demolishing of any privacy for Holly—that was probably messed up—, but, it was. And it felt safe. And it felt good (most of the time). Which was why talk of severing it or whatever freaked Noah tf out. It wasn't that he didn't think, like, they'd make it, as a couple or something, if Noah couldn't do what he did. But, man, it was all he knew and it had always been different with Holly.
But, right, Noah did hit hard with the compliment. He could feel the spread of heat in Holly's cheeks and he grinned his best smug, but charming smile. He ruined it by giggling a little out of sheer, stupid giddiness, but it was whatever. "I love your schtick," he replied stupidly. Get it? Like dick. But, even as he teased, Noah was looking over at Holly (in glances; he was driving) with sickening sincerity. Picking up on the thoughts of memories/etc., Noah said, "I feel safe too."
