    Summary

    "It’s a turn of events that he wasn’t expecting, that she moves first, a swift duck forward into his chest, a hard impact that almost knocks the breath out of him. Her grip is tight, almost desperate, and he can feel it now more than ever, the way she’s shaking. With a sigh, he settles a hand against the back of his young friend’s head, fingers brushing over her hair, other arm coming up in a protective curl just under her shoulders. This is not what she does. She doesn’t move first, doesn’t seek out affection for all that she soaks it in like a sponge, practically basks in the light of positive attention, an observation that has led him to doing his best to be as demonstrative with the kid as possible. As much as she will let him. She doesn’t ask for reassurance, for comfort, either verbally or through action. This, though, this is different."
