The woman hissed slightly through her teeth at him with this.
"I am no demon myself, you fool." She barked. "I suggest you watch your tone with me…."
It all came back to him that he was taking this way too fast. His face changed to surprised, and lit up harder in pure embarrassment.
"O-oh my! I-I’m so sorry! I-I didn’t want to rush you! I promise! I-I’ll try to make it come naturally… I’ve just… I’ve never been in love before… I see my friend getting lucky in love, and… well.. I’ve always been jealous! I-I’m still… very, very… very new… t-to all this!"
He brought his hand to his cheek, and rubbed it softly, with a big (almost stupid) smile on his face. He was happier than he was in long time. Heck, he was in love. He felt like the luckiest guy in any universe.
She leaned back again then to cover her mouth in a rather charming little snicker at his reaction. Honestly she thought this all to be rather silly, but something in her heart and in the pit of her stomach were quite sure it was otherwise. He was sweet and handsome and quite the gentleman. She was about to make a smart remark about him looking like the blush bride now, but his earlier words hit her and she bit her tongue. Had she really teased him that much? It bothered her a bit, but she let it be for now and instead simply nodded to him.
"It’s alright, Rendal- just take a breath and calm down." She nodded, eyes glued to his as she ran one hand under his chin and leaned in close enough for their noses to nearly be touching, copying her next words herself as she said them; "Breathe in….. and out- phew~"
He wiped the sweat gathering at his brow, and nodded, listening to her words, and doing just as she said. He breathed in slowly, and breathed out.
"Seriously… you are just… so sweet… W-what could you ever see in a guy like me? Whatever it is, I’m glad you see it, because no one else has…"
He slowly fidgeted with his hands, not knowing not to do with them since he was no longer holding her cool blue ones.
She shook her head softly and grabbed his hands in her own, giving them a soft squeeze as she spoke next.
"I told you- no one has ever treated me the way you have right have. I’m used to how I do my work being the only thing really even close to romantic. You…. You’re different."
She leaned in again to kiss the edge of his lips in a teasing fashion before pulling away again, soft amber eyes locking with his.
"Also- don’t call me sweet~" She chuckled.
