Re: in-person: Holly NW/Noah NW
Holly knew he was, like, constantly projecting at Noah, and he massively worried about the effect of that on the guy, but he was trying not to worry about it now. I mean, he was already worried about Noah seeing weird memories and stuff, right? But more than that, he was worried about Noah feeling everyone else's reactions to the memories, so leaving Repose for the night was good. Getting the guy away? It was kinda the best thing Holly could think of to do, and, honestly? Holly needed it too, the escape. I mean, just being in the Jeep with Noah? Was making that lingering anger at the closet memory fade.
Blame it all on Noah's smile, which was megawatt, and Holly gave the guy an open smile, genuine and without hiding, in response to Noah saying it was good, you know, the safety. But then Noah bapped his thigh outward, and Holly responded by leaning over and nipping the guy's jaw sharply. "Stop that," he said, and then he acquiesced about the music thing.
