Re: Bennett & Lucretia
"Not if I could have helped it, you wouldn't've," he gave a look over at her, and tucked his hands into his coat pockets. "But at least you've got yourself a nice coat, now, and none of that matters." He eyed her, "but I know you would have attempted to come out here, coat or not." Because she was just as stubborn as he was.
"Hm," he glanced back out toward the streets below, thinking quietly as he watched the snow fall on the rooftops and well, zombies, and whatnot. He nodded, listening carefully to her, "so if you had a frozen zombie-- what would happen when it thawed out? Would it still be able to function?" Also something to think about.
He smiled back over at her, "do you suppose it will get that cold, this year?" It was pretty chilly, out, then. He wouldn't be surprised if they could stumble across a frozen zombie or two. But then what?
Lucretia looked pretty in the snow. She always had. Russia was nice because of the snow, and she looked just as lovely now as she did then. Studying her a good moment, Bennett eventually turned his gaze back out over the city.
"I've been meaning to tell you something, Luce... I've just not found the correct time or place to do it." But tonight seemed like as good a night as any. "You mean a whole lot to me, and-- I know that under the circumstances in which we're together, and you're not-- you know," he looked back to her, "with your family is...well, difficult, and not the easiest thing for you... And you don't have to say anything, but--- I love you, Luce. A-and I'd do anything for you, you know that. I just..." He nodded, keeping his focus on her, "I love you."
Many ways. All ways. She was his partner, his friend, and anything else she wanted to be. But he was loyal to her, and there really wasn't any other woman that he was interested in in any sort of way. Just Lucretia. She knew him and understood him better than anyone.
