Pairing: Matt / Ethan
Notes: Double drabble for primeval100 challenge 209: Damaged
Ethan shook his head as Matt spoke. He couldn’t do this; he didn’t want Matt to get hurt and that was what always happened. His friends, Charlotte… He’d tried to get close to people but somehow it all still turned to crap. He’d come to accept that he’d never have what Matt was offering, someone who was there for him, someone who loved him.
“You don’t want me,” he said. “Bad things happen to people around me. I’m… damaged.”
Matt smiled. “That’s the beauty of something damaged- it can be fixed. Just give us a chance.”
Eventually, Ethan nodded. “Okay.”
