keep his anger in check at her words. “Yeah I did it for selfish reasons. I would have saved you no matter what but Damn it Brianna I wasn’t giving you up.”
"Hurting them would mean hurting you and I’d never do that. You know that." He sighed as he calmed himself down. "Why are you so afraid of me now that I’m in Tony? You weren’t before. I haven’t changed. Just changed vessels."She shook her head. “I told you. You’re putting him and my baby in danger. I,…” Bri looked away and sighed. “Nevermind, Rider,… It’s nothin’. Just, don’t hurt Tony while you’re in there.”
This is for Ralith because there’s not enough Ratchet.
He clenched his fists to keep his anger in check at her words. “Yeah I did it for selfish reasons. I would have saved you no matter what but Damn it Brianna I wasn’t giving you up.”
"Rider,… I don’t- I wish you’d realize how you sound. How you’re acting. How terrified I am of what you could do to Tony. To Howard. As much as I love you,… I love Tony just as much. Maybe more. And my baby boy double that. You can’t keep being so selfish."
Tony smiled and gently took the sleeping child and let her lay back. “Rest love. Howard and I will be right here when you wake up. We aren’t going anywhere.”
"Don’t,… let Rider come out." She murmured, laying her head back against the pillow. It was mere seconds before the first snore sounded from her, the demigoddess out like a light.
"Are you gonna feed him? He’s probably hungry." He played with her hair as he watched them. He was lucky to have them both in his life. "Or are you gonna wait?" He kept his voice quiet as his son started to fall asleep.
"We’re both tired. I’ll wait until later. When he’s awake enough." She replied. She was too tired to fight the child. She knew it would take awhile before he,… She began to drift off, eyes drooping tiredly.
He sighed as he looked away from her. He’d even kept Tonys face when he came out today hoping that would help her not be mad. “What do I gotta do to make you like me again Little one? You never had a problem with me before.”
"You weren’t inhabiting my fiance then." She replied dryly. "I know why you demanded his body as a vessel. And I know you would have saved me even if he disagreed. This, what you’ve done, is twisted. You’re showing you’re more demon than angel." Bri turned away again, flames flickering off the tips of her fingers.
Rider nodded as he looked at her. “Gotta have you to have me.” He murmured then smiled. “So…you done being angry at me for being in your boyfriend?”
She raised a brow. “No. I’m just being civil for now.” Really, she’d come to accept it. She could keep both of them, Tony and Rider. Still,… She didn’t know how to react to it.
Rider chuckled from where he leaned against the doorway watching her. “Fire is cooler than everything Little One.”
"Wouldn’t be fire without me or my father. You have to have air." She looked up, the flames flickering out as she stared at the other. "I have to say,… it’s much warmer. Much more comforting."
