I flush as I shake my head, my fingers pinching at his leg. 

"Everyone knows princesses are pretty on the outside, Marn. C'mon."

"I rest my case," I respond with a cheeky smirk as I take a sip of my wine.

"Shut up," I blush deeper, kicking at him softly.

"Do you really think you're not pretty, though?" I ask after grinning and taking a drink of my wine before putting it aside so I can lounge back in the tub more comfortably. "I mean, I know the scars make you self-conscious, but... I don't know, do you ever think you'll feel good about yourself again? Because you really are, you know... pretty, I mean."

I blush as I look down at my wine, dipping a finger in it as I shrug.

"I don't know that the word of a blind man is going to change much," I say softly, a frown coming to my lips as I look up at him, "I didn't mean it like that."

I frown a bit as I chew on my lip with a sigh. "Your hair was shorter when we met," I say lightly. "Came down to about here," I add as I brush my fingers across my jaw. "And you were wearing these kind of tight jeans - you didn't wear them much after that - and a t-shirt with a baggy sweater and a leather jacket with boots. The moment you noticed me coming toward you, you started combing your hair over your face and tried to hide behind your mug. You smiled when you realized I couldn't see you.

"But I see you, Lju," I say firmly. "I've always seen you, and you've always been beautiful to me. Even when all I had to go on for sure was the way you stumbled over my name."

Sniffling, I reach up to rub at the tears that have formed as I look at Marnin sadly. 

"I remember that day," I nod softly, reaching up to shove my hair from my face, the wet from my hands holding it in place as I look down at my wine. "The bar was full, but my corner was always quiet. You were the first person who'd honestly spoken to me in a week."

"Can I..?" I ask as I sit up, my hands on the edge of the tub as I nod at the spot next to her. When she nods faintly, I move over carefully to settle in beside her, my arm wrapping around her as I press a soft kiss to her cheek.

"I'm glad I did," I smile faintly.

I smile fondly as he kisses me, nuzzling against him as I rest my head on his. 

"Me, too." I say softly.

I bite my lip for a moment before kissing her tentatively, my breath catching when she returns it. My pulse races even after I've pulled away to rest my head back against hers.

"Lju?" I ask a little breathlessly. "Do you think once all of this is over... do you think maybe we could get married?"

"Wha- really?" I look at him, stunned by the question as I frown, "Marn, I- I don't know, I-

Guilt builds in my chest at my stumbling response, the anxiety from my lack of an answer reading plainly on his face. I sit up to set my wine off to the side, reaching over to take his face in my hands as I kiss him softly. 

"Ask me again when it's over."

"I will," I nod, letting out a breath I hadn't known I was holding as I return her kiss with a faint sigh.

My heart pounds as I smile, nodding softly. 

"I love you," I say quietly, my fingers running through his hair before I sit back and grab for my wine again, nestling against him as I sink into the water. 

"I know I'm rubbish at showing it, and I'm sure I've made you think otherwise many times, but I promise you, I do..." I explain, my head resting against him as I take a tentative sip of my wine. "I'm just afraid. For a long time, I was afraid you didn't feel the same, I was afraid I wouldn't be enough for you. That I would never really be comfortable giving you what you needed, what you deserved

"When I was younger, I'd seek intimacy out in whoever I could find. In all the wrong places, and I'd soak it up until it imploded, but I always had someone there to pick up my pieces and I craved it, but... But now I don't have anyone, so I was afraid. I didn't have Maja there to tell me it was a good idea, or a bad idea. I was scared that I'd fuck it all up, that you'd leave and I'd be alone again..."

"That's not gonna happen, Lju," I breathe as I wrap my arms around her and press a kiss to her hair. "If there are ever any pieces to pick up, I'll be there to help pick them up. And I don't need as much as you think, Lju... I'm happy just being with you, drinking shitty beers and watching a tv I can't see, listening to you play your guitar for strangers' money. I love every minute of it."

Sniffling, I smile as I nuzzle against him, twisting to kiss his chest lightly. 

"That's all great, but I like this, too." I smile, looking up at him, "I like being close to you."

"I'm glad," I breathe as I nuzzle against her with a content smile. "I like this. Just sharing a bath together, feeling each other's skin... I like being able to touch you." I sigh a bit as I run my fingers over her arm, the numbness in my fingers frustrating but also kind of enthralling - a new experience. Still, I move my leg against hers slightly to compensate for the lack of feeling.

"I know it's kind of lame, but... I don't know," I frown. "I always loved listening to you... it's sort of the first and sometimes only way I have to connect with people. But being able to touch you, feel you... it's like meeting you all over again."

My leg tenses lightly before stretching against his, tangling against it softly as I finish the wine in my glass. Looking up at him, I smile as I reach over to set my glass down, my fingers coming back to run through his hair and down his neck, my nails tracing along his shoulder. 

"I had a lot of negativity attached to touching after what happened, and I don't want that to happen again." I say softly, my hand smoothing over his arm as I rest back against him.

"Me either," I breathe, my brow pinching slightly as I hold her against me. "I'll be honest, I'm kind of afraid of what being here will do to us... I feel like I just finally got to a point where I don't flinch at some things. I don't want to be afraid of being close to you - of scaring you or being scared of you. And I used to be, Lju... when we first met, the first time we spent the night together, I was so scared that you might want more even though on some level I kind of wanted it, too.

"I don't ever want that to be us again," I frown.

"So, don't let it," I say weakly, tears stinging at my eyes as I look at him, "Promise me, we won't be like that again."

I can feel tears stinging at my eyes as I squeeze her lightly, nodding roughly. "I promise." I breathe. "And you promise you won't push things... if you're uncomfortable, ever, just tell me. We can work through it.

I only nod as I kiss him, my arms snaking around his shoulders as I take jagged breaths against his lips. 

"I promise."

I practically shake under her kiss, my hands roaming over her back as I try to feel something more than the numbness in my fingers.

The burn of pain as his fingers move over my back does nothing to dissuade me from moving towards him. My legs curl towards his as I kiss him deeply, my fingers warm with the tickle of the liquor we'd had earlier as they cup his jaw fondly.

"Mm," I can't help the little noise that catches in my throat as I return the kiss. There's a little flicker of fear in the pit of my stomach as I feel the tickle of arousal threatening me, but I do my best to push past it. It's frustrating dragging my fingers up her sides and feeling nothing but the faintest pressure.

Inhaling a bit, I pull from the kiss to clench my fingers uncomfortably before dragging the back of my hand across her cheek. That's a little better, but not by much...

I frown slightly as I nuzzle against his touch, reaching up to take his hand in mine as I squeeze it and let my fingers tangle with his.

"You can't feel anything... Can you?" I ask softly, bringing his fingers to my lips as I kiss them gently, "Your touch is former than it used to be..."
