“forget it, you’re a fucking asshole.”
oh, she had every right to think it, say it, even SCREAM those words at him if she wanted to and he knew she would be right. gideon had been an asshole to her, he’d been worse than that but only because he was trying to make it EASIER for her. for the both of them. “if i am that much of an asshole hope then WHY ARE YOU HERE?” was everything okay? yeah, maybe he could have just started with that but he wasn’t sure if it was okay to ask those kind of questions. since when did loving someone with all your heart end up being so complicated and painful? because ever since he ended things with her? it had hurt. ALL IT DID WAS HURT. “do you think i like being this way with you? DO YOU?” gideon wasn’t the kind of guy who kept all these secrets from the people who mattered most and yet that’s what he was becoming. he was lying to hope, he was lying to his dad, heck he was lying to EVERYONE and sooner or later something was going to have to give.
