Niklas Dragonius "We're still not a couple," Niklas Dragonius exhales as he rolls over to kiss Seloria Delacreaux's neck. It's the middle of the night, and Nik's still wide awake.

A few days ago, he got a call from Alma, encouraging him to go check on Seloria. He's not sure what happened, nor what made Alma so worried, but Alma is notoriously kind of...well, nicely speaking, neurotic. Super neurotic.

But, well, now that he's back in Costa Del Sol, Nik swung by Seloria's place, and, as so often did when they were together, one thing led to another...and then it led here.

"Hey," Nik adds after a few moments, "Alma wanted me to check on you, like, a couple days ago. 'severything alright?"
Niklas Dragonius "Well, she's kinda like that sometimes." Nik drapes his arm over her waist, pulling the covers up over them both. "She can be kinda hostile. She kinda weirds me out, to be honest; I'm not really that interested in her. Gives me a weird vibe."

Nik snuggles against her. "But you're okay, right? I don't gotta go kill anybody or beat 'em up or nothin'."
Niklas Dragonius Nik is quiet for a moment. He bites down on her ear gently for a moment; around it, he asks a question he's probably going to regret.

" you love me?"

"Yes, she being Helena. I wouldn't hook up with Alma, though. She's kinda young for me. And...kinda twitchy. She's a really nice girl...she deserves better than me."
Niklas Dragonius Nik releases her, rolling back over and spreading his arms out on the bed as he stares up at the ceiling. He's quiet for a really long moment. "A bit, huh?"

"What, so she asked you guys to find a husband for her and the best guy you could think of was *me*?" Nik actually laughs.
Niklas Dragonius "Yeah...Soan'd be a good fit for Alma, I guess. He's a nice guy."

Nik is really quiet for a really long time. He doesn't move, but he does tighten his arm around her, tugging her up against him as she moves to look at him. "Nah, it's nothing. We can pretend we didn't say anything, if you want. You probably don't wanna hear what I'd say anyway."
Niklas Dragonius Nik is quiet again.

"Are you sure you wana hear it?" He doesn't touch on the Alma issue.
Niklas Dragonius Nik exhales. This was gonna be uncomfortable for him, he just knew it. He was gonna regret this, probably, tomorrow; he might even regret it tonight.

Nik rolls over. He hooks his arms around her waist, tightening his grip on her. His lips press against her ear; he's doing his best to make this as comfortable as possible for her, and as pleasant as possible for *him*.

"I don't love you," Nik mutters. "I mean...I don't. I care about you. I care about protecting you. I're probably my favorite girl in the whole world to spend time with. You are probably my second best friend, right up there with Jidro. If I had dark secrets or problems or stuff, I would probably talk to you about them, and I trust you more than pretty much anybody but Cid."

"But I don' you. I don't want kids, or a house, or a marriage. I'm happy to be with you, but I don't wanna be.../with/ you."

"Don't take that the wrong way." Nik kisses the side of her neck gently. "If I was gonna get married and have kids and do all that stuff, I'd probably do it with you. I just..."

Nik shrugs.

"...sorry. I hope we can still...y'know, keep...doing this."
Seloria Delacreaux Seloria sighs when Nik smoothly pulls her into position against him, and she bites her bottom lip again. She knows very well why he's doing this like this and she knows very well what his response is going to be. She knows him, after all -

Especially when he admits to her practically being his best friend. She /knows/.

She doesn't respond at first, listening to him whisper in her ear, even as she gives a little half-shrug. "I knew that." She admits. "It's hard not to fall in love with you, you know." Seloria points this out without a qualm at all. "With your protectiveness, and kindness, and then there's the more... physical aspect of it." Her mouth quirks.
Niklas Dragonius Nik adjusts a little bit, laying his head against her back. "Well...y'know. It's not that I don't like the idea of having you all to myself or something. I mean, I kinda do. But I just..."

Nik shrugs.

"I'm not that great a guy, you know," he adds after she's done. "I mean, yeah, I'll cop to the physical stuff, but I'm not gonna act like I'm some kind of saint. Odam's kinda right; I'm a jackass."
Seloria Delacreaux "We all have our faults." Seloria points out.

"You're just much more aware of your own and aren't afraid to admit to them, and you're not afraid of being true to yourself, in a way that not a lot of people are comfortable with." She falls quiet again.
Niklas Dragonius "I guess." Nik shrugs. "I don't think I'd make a very good husband. We'd probably fight a lot and get into problems and hate each other in the end."
Seloria Delacreaux "Yeah, yeah. Fall into the same old trap. Not that we'd know anything about 'normal' relationships." Seloria sighs, before, where he can't see it, a wicked grin crosses her face. "But that's okay."
Niklas Dragonius "I guess so," Nik agrees quietly.

"So what happened that made Helena need to shout at you, anyway?"
Seloria Delacreaux "I was being... stupid. I told you, remember? I had a ... I guess the term is a panic or anxiety attack, but I dunno really know the specifics." She shrugs. "So she an' Alma came to find me and Helly basically noted I was being dumb about my reaction to it, so..." Seloria shrugs.
