WE WERE JUST KIDS WHEN WE FELL IN LOVE, NOT KNOWING WHAT IT WAS. I WILL NOT GIVE YOU UP THIS TIME. DARLING JUST KISS ME SLOW, YOUR HEART IS ALL I OWN. WHEN YOU SAID YOU LOOKED A MESS, I WHISPERED AND YOU HEARD IT.



Addie couldn't deny that there had been days where she had been left to wonder just what happened to an imprint when it was neglected for so long in any context. Where she had Tristan had not been lovers let alone friends, it was hard not to wonder if that had taken a physical, mental or emotional toll on him where he was the one that was so greatly impacted by the imprint. It was an intricate, vital piece of him whereas it was Addie that had always been the one that simply benefited from it; she loved him, there was no question about that nor had there ever been, but she wasn't the one stuck feeling that nagging impact of an imprint whose needs weren't being met.

Another soft smile found the brunette hybrid's lips as he rebuked his apology; it wasn't the first time that he had refused to apologize for caring about her, after all, and Addie knew that it likely wouldn't be the last time. She was perfectly okay with that, though. She couldn't quite explain why, but it had always been a bit of a comfort knowing no matter what she said or did, no matter how hurt or broken she felt, there was always that one person out there in the world that would never stop caring about her. Was that a little selfish? Perhaps... but everyone deserved a single shred of selfishness every now and again, didn't they?

That was precisely why Addie knew that he wasn't going to refuse to agree with her need for the time required to properly mend things between them. Their lives had never been perfect, be they together or apart. Time had put a lot of distance between them and their imperfections which meant they were going to have to relearn the ins and outs of all the damage that had been done to them in each others' absence.

"Thank you... I mean, I know I probably don't deserve much compassion or understanding from you; I could have done a whole lot more to at least try to keep the line of communication open between us over these last few years..." Given all that she had been through, it was hard not to feel like she deserved to feel guilty or to blame for everything negative that happened in her life. She was the common denominator, after all, was she not?

Granted, even Addie knew that those feelings weren't at all logical, but that didn't always encourage them to vacate her mind. It was something she understood she would need professional help overcoming, though she hadn't exactly reached out to anyone in the psychological field to better her situations or her mindsets. It was on her list of things she had to do, but Addie knew she had to start prioritizing herself, her health and her own needs before she ever got to a point where it wouldn't exactly matter anymore.

Taking a sip of the drink in front of her, Addie nodded gently as he asked for the same. He, too, wanted time to be able to truly mend everything between them, and seeing as she had just asked that of him, she had no qualms in agreeing to the same.

"You can have all the time you need." Her words were spoken as she placed her glass back down in the table in front of her. "I mean, maybe that's why things will be so much different this time around? We were always so eager to rush that we never really talked things out; we just jumped right back in like everything was always okay..." And while sometimes there was nothing wrong with that, it wasn't something that had ever really benefited she or Tristan in the long run. "I think this will be good..."

I will hold you up.
"Hey, No. None of that." he spoke softly, as she tried to take responsibility for the fact that they had eventually stopped communicating altogether after she had left. As much as he had wanted to blame her in the beginning, he had stopped trying too. His efforts had minimized when she had started seeing Jackson and then they had ceased altogether when she had gotten married. He had felt hopeless and helpless and he couldn't handle it.

"We both could have tried harder ... it's just that after a certain point ..." he paused, wondering if there was a way that he could word himself that wouldn't further make her feel responsible. She might have influenced his decision but he had been the one to make it. He could have fought harder when Jackson had come into her life but he had just felt so defeated.

"It's not all on you." he added before their conversation pressed forward to him asking her for the same thing that she had just asked of him. He nodded when she agreed in return that he could have all the time that he needed much as he had just done for her. "Yeah, maybe." he agreed as she commented about things being so much better this time because they weren't rushing.

"Sometimes it was okay ..." he replied, though he knew that she had a point. "I'm sure you're right though." He glanced down at the table and then over at her drink. "Have you eaten? I'm a little hungry."

Both Addie and Tristan seemed to understand just how ill-advised young love was and needed to be; it was beautiful in and of itself, there was no denying that... but young love - true or otherwise - wasn't wise. It didn't come with the wisdom that many years of trial and error brought along with it, nor did it possess the finesse needed to navigate some of the extremely difficult situations that today's couples were often faced with.

It was brave, bold, messy and immature. T Here was no denying that then, nor was there any denying it now. They had fought for all the right reasons in the right moments... but they had fought for all the wrong reasons every other moment of every other day. The little things that shouldn't have mattered somehow... did. Fights that had no room in their relationship manifested out of thin air, as if they couldn't breathe without conflict.

Part of Addie would always wish they had waited. That they had taken a little more time to develop their friendship and their bond with each other before ever embarking on a romantic relationship. A great many people had warned them, of course... Though both Tristan and Addie had been far too stubborn and far too set in their ways to have ever listened.

Fools in love, yes?

He was right, blindingly so. After a certain point, there had to be an end to the madness they had kept on repeat for years. The desperateness of their young love had to cease; perhaps it could have grown into something that would have survived the years, but Addie had been quick to move on and Tristan had been quick to give in to defeat.

A small smile found her lips as he seemed eager to add that sometimes things had been okay. He did have a point, though she wasn't as eager to admit that just yet.

Shaking her head in reply to his question, she pointed to the drink she was already half-way through. "I didn't want to order without you so I settled on a glass of wine until you got here." Well, two glasses of wine, but that wasn't information that she was willing to hand over, either. "What're you having?"

There wasn't a person in the world that would ever be able to convince the young hybrid that his time with Addie had been a mistake. Perhaps things had not always been easy for them but nothing that was worth having ever came easy, did it? That was what Theodore Roosevelt had believed, anyway. Tristan believed it too.

Even as they sat there discussing their past and how things had become so messed up between them, there was a part of him that wanted to convince her that it had all been his fault and that he shouldn't have let her leave or that he should have fought harder for her. In some ways, that was true. While the separation itself had been amicable, he should have and could have done something more to make her stay but then ... would she have grown to resent him if he had kept her from her dreams? Did she resent him now for not making her stay?

His head spun with the possibilities, his attention only truly shifting focus when her voice reached his ears and gave him something to latch onto. A small smile crept over his lips as she confessed that she hadn't wanted to order without him and had simply indulged in a single glass of wine. "I'm not really sure what I'm in the mood for. Do you know what you're having?"
