April 16 ;
Betty sighed softly, closing her eyes as she reached up to run her fingers through her hair, tucking a strand behind her ear before looking at Bruce. “Of course not. I…I’m just frustrated, Bruce. You have no idea how long I’ve been looking for you. How long I’ve waited to finally talk to you again..” She trailed off before smiling slightly.
"I know, Bruce. I’m sorry."
He swallowed as he stared at his feet. The tops of his shoes were leather, the material cooking under the hot sun and begging for his further scrutiny. Still, he knew it was best to face the woman before him than the shoes below him. He knew what the bigger of his priorities were — and if he let Betty slip away now, he would never cease to reproach himself for it. He took another breath and met her gaze, catching the whisper of a sigh and the tracing of fingers through her auburn hair. He didn’t think it was possible, but his eyes softened even further as he realized that she was smiling faintly. But despite this, and despite the well-intentioned nature of her apology, the words made him cringe inside. She didn’t need to apologize.
"Don’t, Betty," he murmured, almost in a pleading fashion. "No one’s at fault here… We both have a lot of baggage." Then his attitude rose slightly. Maybe he was just being paranoid about Ross. He could catch a break every so often, couldn’t he? What happened with Jarvis, the whole breakthrough, was proof enough.
Then a meager smile broke through his face. It was slight, the smallest of quirks, but it was visible enough, and it mirrored the expression that Betty had given him.
"I think I can stick around for a bit," he said. "How do you feel about coffee?"
If you’re not comfortable with Bruces on your dash you don’t have to follow me :33 also sjrjfishhf
Oh hush I’m following you because you are a beautiful person ok. <3
Hey guys, I’m back. <3
There’s a few things I have to mention.
Added a new ‘rule’ to my rules page.
Basically, I will no longer be threading with partners who RP with more than one other Bruce, whether I follow you or not. Sorry friends. My self-esteem and anxiety just isn’t there, so I’m putting my foot down before I get the chance to feel like poop again. There are a few exceptions to this, like those who are in my drafts list below. I hope this is understandable.
Also, icon. Yayay. ;u;
There’s a ton of messages that I gotta reply to. If we’ve been plotting, etc, I should get back to you by the end of tonight. If you sent me something and I don’t reply, please do resend the message because I didn’t get it. c:
*Leaves a trail of Bucky bait leading to my ask box*
Bruce needs a Bucky. Also, if anyone’s interested, I ship Brucky. Right now, the ship’s more like a tiny life raft with a hole in it than an actual ship, but maybe some of you will join the dark side too? cx
Okay, so I have drafts for the following lovelies in my folder right now…
If you think I missed you, shoot me a message!
[Sneaky promo for this wonderful mun go follow them.]
