"Oh." Well, when she put it like that...he could see where it wasn't such a great state to be in. "Well, I guess that makes sense." Thinking of it, really, that's how he used the term as well, a simple brush over that meant he didn't want to deal with it.
The hesitation as she thought through how to explain it left room for Kol to shift, sitting further back in the chair instead of leaning forward on the table, more settled now. He was curious about whatever it was that was bothering her so much, though. He'd legitimately thought if anything it would have been everything that had happened in Sunnydale.
And it all boiled down to double standards, which Kol could admit were viscuously rampant in Lawrence. People pulled them out every chance they got, hell, he was probably guilty of it himself. But this. It was about Nik, and of course it would get to her like this. It was actually sort of ridiculous, the amount of hate spewed at his brother. Kol had his reasons for treating him the way he did. Not that it made it any better, really, but he did at least have reasons. Reasons he was slowly beginning to try and let go of more than he had in the past. It was a work in progress and he wasn't sure how long it would take, but he was working on it.
The way people went after him in the fashion she was talking about though, maybe he was filtered out of a lot of it, maybe he just wasn't paying as much attention to a lot of the other dramas going on. But he hadn't thought much about it really. Double standards were annoying as hell, but they were freaking everywhere and he usually just ignored it, lived his life and people be damned for whatever they thought of it. "Who's calling him out for bullshit stuff?" he couldn't help the question spilling out, almost immediately as she spoke. "I haven't paid much mind to the little witch's dramas, personally, I don't even know what she's on about, if I'm honest." He kept close to his inner circle these days, it was too much trouble to venture outside of it most of the time anymore.
"But basically, Loki's been here longer, that's really the only difference, isn't it? People rush to bat for him because he's done whatever he's done for the city through the years he's been here?" Kol honestly had no idea. Thinking on it like this, though, everything Nik had been saying was being put in even more of a perspective as well.
