He sighs. "Whaddaya mean 'that again'?" Even though Firo knows perfectly well that feeling of dismay that comes when someone revives a problem that you thought or hoped they'd decided to leave alone.

"I'm tellin' you, it's still important. And if you don't want her to think you hate yourself, it's a damn good place to start."

As he finishes, he realizes that he may also be speaking for his own sake as well as Faye's. Though he promised her a little while ago that they wouldn't yell and argue like he thought they had to after her little 'lookit me, I'm the traitor' stunt on the network, this isn't something that they can let slip.

In a stunning display of self-awareness, Firo knows that the reason those words make him want to punch a hole in the wall is because he's hearing a friend talk to flippantly about herself.

But it's just so hard to say that sometimes. Instead, he rolls hos eyes. "Right, because the rest of us "normal people" have no idea what the hell is goin' on and can't walk down the street without kickin' the bucket."

He pours another drink as he tries not to get too riled up. Rather, he takes a page from Luck's book and keeps his tone conversational. "There's another one, too. Start talkin' about doin' things for yourself, not just some other people."

Firo realizes that he's normally awfully preoccupied about that, even without the Family around. But it's different, his mind insists fiercely.

Firo elects to ignore her first point. His humanity and durability aren't topics he cares to discuss right now.

He listens through her list, nodding stolidly at the end. "Yeah. You would. Because it doesn't matter what you're made of."

He's not budging on that. Never.

"That's great. It really is. Just watch how you go on about 'bein' useful to other people.'"

If he were the type to think about his words, he would have considered that wording more. Helping others is one of the most important things--he's call someone a selfish fuck if they tried to wiggle out of it. That is, if the person being helped deserved it. As far as he's concerned, a lot of the people Rey would help don't deserve it anymore.

Firo shrugs. "It makes perfect sense."

He watches her go for the drink. "Why's that?"

He's not sure if she's talking about what went on when she went back home or stuff on the ship. Either way, he can't come up with anything that makes sense, though he's obviously not privy to every detail of her life.

Firo bites back any number of retorts. Like hey, buddy, how about how he felt about that whole sabotage thing? But that would be too harsh, he thinks, and it would also require him to admit to those softer, more vulnerable emotions. No thanks.

Instead, he reaches across the table for her hand and, if she doesn't pull away, will set his fingers on the back of her wrist. He tries to shake off the feelings of frustration and instead focus on how he feels about Rey when she's not being a stubborn little mule.

Which is love. Love and fondness and happiness and no room for anything else.

"It's okay." He isn't quite sure what she means by 'can't,' because that could probably be a lot of things right now. He doesn't need the empathy link to know that she's struggling.

"I'll stop if you want." His expression is sober when he says that and he means it utterly. Physically, she's probably one of the people he's been most comfortable with in his life, but that's a small list to begin with. He'd still feel uncomfortable forcing anything on her.

He tilts his head and smiles just a little. "...But then I'd just say this all with words anyway, and that might be kinda annoyin' with how stupid I am with that stuff."

He feels a little pang of guilt as she dries her face, hoping that that doesn't mean she's hurting too much. He'll apologize later, but there are some things that apologies don't patch so well.

"Are you serious?" He immediately regrets asking, knowing that it's pretty obvious that she is. This is Rey, for Pete's sake. "That's not bein' selfish. You're not holdin' me hostage here."

"Honestly, if it's not botherin' you, I don't really wanna stop either." He nods, as if that seals the deal.

He nods and tries to smile like he's joking. "I kinda feel like I should apologize for makin' you do... this."

He flicks his free hand at her face in reference to the tears. Instead of setting it back on the countertop, he rests it with their other hands.

"I mean, not like you've gotta worry about it or anything--it's just us here. Anybody comes in, I'll throw 'em out."

That kind of callousness is something that he'd usually roll his eyes at coming from one of his friends, but this is important. As seldom as he comes close to crying, he knows well enough that it can feel pretty damn humiliating if people see.

He smiles softly at her movement and responds by leaning his head against the top of hers, keeping it nestled there. He can't help but be surprised at someone now being deathly afraid of being seen crying, but he supposes that makes this easier.

"Oh." He nods, which is a bit of an awkward gesture with his head resting on hers, so he cuts it out quickly. "Good to know, I guess."

Firospeak for 'thanks.' He almost wants to point out that doing good things for someone doesn't cancel out the bad, just while they're on the topic. That faint uncertainty may creep through their bond, though he still tries to maintain the love faucet. He decides to keep the thought to himself as best he can--maybe it's an important thing for her to know, but he's enjoying this moment as it is.

Those are words he's been yearning to hear for a long time now, but it's hard to grasp them even so. He freezes, shifting slightly as if looking at her would reveal that this is all a joke or something.

"What? Are you kiddin' me?"

He sincerely hopes not. Even the thought of her being able to get to that point is enough to fill him with joy. He feels like he could jump into the air--if he weren't being tasked with the important duty of holding her now.

The glow of happiness gets stronger at her words. "You did."

"And it's not that I doubted your or anything, I just--" he cuts himself off with a little laugh. "...I guess I'm happy too and kinda surprised. I... I was afraid it'd take a lot longer."

This is a start, right?

"I know." He shakes his head in mock disappointment, though he really is glad that she's not immediately going all doom and gloom. Still, he thinks any victory is something you can be glad for, especially when it's this critical. "But the celebration's still on, whether you like it or not."

He taps his fingers on her hair. "Do you need to know why?"
