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?"

He sighs in mock annoyance and goes to flick her forehead. "Because."

And for a moment he pauses as if he'll leave it at that. "It doesn't really matter, does it? No matter how much you think about it, it's not gonna make you more happy, right?"

Firo's genius shines through when he debates.

Now that he has her agreement, he's suddenly a little more open minded. "You sure? I mean, I could try explainin' it, but I think you're happier when you don't think so much."

Thinking is bad. This much he knows.

Firo laughs and feigns pride in his voice. "See? Didn't I tell you?"

He has something to admit to of his own, he supposes. "I guess I gotta admit this weird brain stuff is good for somethin'."
