"I'm very good at pretending," I smile lightly as I turn to put my back against the door, my legs stretching across my half of the seat as I prop my feet up above the transmission.

"Sneaky prat." I find myself smirking as I pull my legs into the seat, wrapping the blanket around my knees before I rest back against the wheel.

"You do that a lot? Pretend to sleep so you can spy on people?"

"Just you," I smirk as I kick my shoes off so I can wiggle my toes under the blanket more comfortably. "You're almost a different person when you think you're alone and unobserved. It's relaxing."

"Well, I won't be anymore!" I laugh softly, "Pretending to sleep, I should hit you."

"You couldn't hit me," I can't help but smile as a low chuckle vibrates in my chest. "I'm a defenseless blind man. And you like me too much."

"Not too much to hit you." I retort, folding my arms over the wheel so I can rest my head more comfortably. "I'm never singing around you ever again, even if you are 'sleeping'."

"But why?!" I protest with an 'aww', my foot reaching out to nudge her leg with a pout. "I like listening to your voice."

I narrow my eyes at him, raising my head so I can reach out and swat him. 

"Because you're a sneaky little prat and you've been pretending to sleep to lull me into a false sense of security. You've lost the privileges."

"I didn't do it sneakily," I pout as I pull the covers up to my shoulders and tuck my arms over my chest. "You woke me up and I didn't want to embarrass you by saying something."

"You just said you do it a lot!" I remark with a bit of incredulity, "And only for me!"

"Right, okay, but not this time!" I argue, my cheeks feeling a bit warm as I try to hide my grin. "Well... maybe. But not always! Not on purpose. I don't know, I just like listening to you."

"How often do you listen!?" I demand, my cheeks warming as I try to recall how often I'd sing around him, suddenly quite anxious about what songs I may or may not have sung around him.

"Not that often," I lie, shrugging my shoulders as I hear her heart rate increase ever so slightly. "A few times when I've slept over and had trouble sleeping, that's all."

"Oh," I nod, "Well, good. I don't want you to hear me... Not like that."

I sigh as I settle back against the steering wheel. "I hate how it's made me sound."

"Do they hurt?" I ask tentatively, my body going still as I broach the subject uncertainly.

"Sometimes." I respond, looking blankly at my hands as I trace one of the scars that curves around my wrist. "My jaw, and that side of my mouth will cramp up."

"Is that why you're always-," I clear my throat uncomfortably, my hand going up to drag the back of my fingers across my cheek, the gesture all too familiar as I feel my stomach flip at the associated memories.

"Huh?" I frown as I look over at him, "Touching my face? You can tell when I'm doing that?"

My jaw clenches as I force a short nod, clearing my throat as I try to avoid her gaze. It's an odd impulse, given my inability to see her, but I can feel her eyes on me and I can't help but squirm under their scrutiny.

"How?" I ask simply, more in awe than anything else.

"Richard-," I start, my throat sticking before I clear it roughly and continue. "He had a... friend... who taught me how to see the world without actually seeing it. Sounds, smells, the way the air shifts, tiny little things that give every movement away. I can hear your fingers drag across the skin - first the soft skin of a woman's cheek, then the thinner skin of little scars and the thicker skin of larger ones. I can even tell the shape of the scars from the sound... at least where you touch them, anyway."

I only look at him as he speaks, nodding vaguely as I sit back and look out the window.

"That would explain why you always seem so aware - More so than you should..." I say softly, hugging my blanket further up my chest as I adjust my knees to rest against the wheel, my back curling as I sink into the seat to rest against the door. "So you always knew?"

"I had an idea," I say quietly as my head rests against the seat. It feels cold against my cheek and I can feel a shiver go through my body. "I knew you hid your face when we first met. I assumed it was because of an injury, but I wasn't sure until we'd spent some time together and you'd kept touching the spot on your jaw."

I tuck the blanket around me a little more snugly, another shiver going through my body as I pick my head up to reach down for another sweater to slip on.

"Honestly?" I say after I've pulled it on and rearranged the blanket more comfortably around me. "I've always wondered about it... wanted to feel it, just to see it better. Not that I'd ever ask, but you know..."

I'm not even aware of the tears that've filled my eyes until one spills over onto my cheek, and I reach up to rub it away as I sink further into my blanket. 

"Oh," I whisper once he's done, nodding my vague understanding as I wrap my hand in the blanket to rub it across my face. My throat is thick, and it's hard to swallow as I stare blankly out the slowly-fogging window.

"Why are you crying?" I ask, my brow knitting in concern as I sit up a little.
