Re: Bennett & Lucretia
Bennett smirked, watching Lucretia get all over dramatic, "indeed." She was a little bit silly sometimes, but that was one of the things that he liked about her. She was fun. And funny. She always knew how and when to make him smile.
And Bennett didn't blame her at all for the incident. It wasn't something that could be helped. It wasn't expected. A complete surprise attack on their end. Like an ambush that neither of them had expected. There was no way Lucretia could have kept it from happening, and Bennett knew that. He was just glad nothing bad had happened to her in Russia. He would have never forgiven himself for that.
When Lucretia glanced away, he worried his lip with his teeth and reached over to gently set his hand on her back, letting his thumb lightly pet against her, in hopes to calm her a bit, "Luce, I'm sorry," he hadn't meant to make her feel awkward or upset. "You don't have to show anything.. I just want you to be happy. I don't like seeing you upset."
Bennett watched Lucretia and moved to get up to his feet, once she got up to start up toward the roof. He didn't object, and followed along with her, letting her pull him toward the stairs. "My idea?" He chuckled, "why would it be my idea to go to the roof, other than to be alone with you?" Oh, woops. Did he say that out loud? Of course he did!
