[Warded to Aidan]

[ Sam is in one of those cleaning moods. Everything in the house is clean, but she wants to clean it more. It's slightly ridiculous, but she doesn't think so. There's a washcloth in her hands as she feverishly cleans the bookshelf. She understands they have cleaning ladies to do these things, yet she doesn't give a damn and feels the need to do the cleaning. Her parents are out of town, and since she's waaaaay over eighteen years of age, they felt she was responsible enough to be home alone...well, with August, who was currently asleep. ]

[After talking to Mr. Evans over the phone, Aidan knows he needs to talk to Samantha. After talking himself out of it a few times, he knocks softly on her door, praying she doesn't hear it so he can go home without feeling guilty. It's been years since they've last spoken. He isn't possitive her reaction to seeing him is going to be all smiles and hugs. He's convinced it's going to be a whole other ballgame. But he's there. Waiting. Which in the end should be what matters. ]

[Hearing the soft knock, she gets up to answer the door. Opening it, she sees him standing there and her voice is soft, even though she looks immensely perplexed. ]


[ Due to confusion, Samantha takes in a deep breath, then shuts the door, and opens it again.]

Dad's outa' town with my mother. They won't be back for at least another week. Wouldja' like me to leave him a message for you?

[He expects her to not open the door again. He's not sure where to even start when she does.
What he does know is she's not angry with him. She's there. Leaving him to awkwardly look at her and shake his head.]

Hate to break it to you, Massie, but I'm not here to speak to your father.

I came to see you.

[ Her right hand is on the doorknob. There's not much for her to say. What can she say? It's been a while. A very long while, and by now she's rather tired of the men in her life disappointing her.]


[She pauses, shaking her head once in confusion.]

Why now -- I mean?

[ Aidan runs a his hand through his brown hair, he was waiting for this to come up.. and he knew it was bound to. The fact that she isn't angry makes him feel like a terrible friend. ]

Your upset. I understand. I would be upset, too. But I didn't want to invade your life.

At the time, Massie, I thought everything was goin' great for you. I thought you were happy. I didn't know...

[He covers his face with his hands, highly infuriated with himself for not knowing. These are the thoughts that haunt him at night. These are his inner demons. He doesn't like to think of Sam hurt, upset, or angry because of some abusive shit for brains. ]

I'm sorry. I really am.

[She steps back, holding the door open until he walks through. ]

You should be. You really, really should be.

[Awkwardly she looks to her shoes, ready to tell him about what had happened since the last time they had seen each other. She was married, yes. But the relationship she had with her husband of the time, was not a nice one. When she and Aidan had did what they did, it was not something she did to spite Adrian or to be risky. No, it was because she actually felt a connection with him at the time. She thought -- clearly thought wrong -- he cared for her. ]

My father tell you, then? Did he tell you August isn't Adrian's, huh?

[identity profile] 2013-03-30 01:17 pm (UTC)(link)
He has, yes. If I had known before I would have...

[He shuts up. There's no way to undo his past mistakes, but he's going to try. Because even though she might not think so, he does care about her. He was just stupid then.

Really fucking stupid then. ]

I would have come to see you. I would have tried to get you to leave with me. Tried to get you out of there, away from him...August away from him. At the time, I had no idea. You have to understand.

I had no clue.

[ No, you would not have. She thinks to herself, heart beating at an accelerated level. He knows and he seems so so upset.]

I don't think you would have. Even if you had a clue, Aidan. How could you just leave me like that? After all those years of friendship, you have an affair with me once, and then you leave without even a bloody fuckingphone call.

That's not something friends do to their friends.
