PM: Hey, hey, it’s okay now, Nicky.
There’s…there’s not a lot we can do right now, except be there for her and help her when she arrives back here. Just…c’mere. I’ll hold you.

Oh, Jesse, It’s been too long.
Please tell me you plan on coming over to at least let me know you’re alive.
It’s been quite a while, Elijah, but I’m here, I promise.
I can come over sometime tomorrow if you’d like? Stop by and chat before lunch or something? It’s weird not seeing your curly head all the time.
You can come out of hiding, pretty boy.
Oh good, because you can’t hide this brilliance for long.
I missed you.
Tell me you love me?
I love you, Nick. More than anything.
I need to get out of this school. It’s too…hard.
But I know you can’t give me that. So can we just lay down maybe?
I know, Nicky. I know.
Okay. I’ll be big spoon then, alright?
But what if I don’t know what I want, Jess?
Can you just tell me what I want?
I’m afraid I can’t, Nick.
I wish I could help you, but I won’t know how if you don’t tell me what you need.
Text: Not tonight.
Text: Maybe in the future. I’m not entirely sure I’ll like being in bed with two Duvals.
Text: Sorry, I’m talking with him right now. I don’t wanna ruin our connection when he’s like this.
Why do you always make it about you? God I am so miserable I had to even think that. I’m awful.I feel awful.
I’m not sure I’m up for anymore baking right now. The smell of burning stuff makes…makes my hand ache. Which sounds stupid because most of my hand can’t actually feel. It’s like that Pizza Es Dee thing, I guess.
I’m sorry. I know you don’t like seeing me upset. I can try and be less mopey.
Okay, right. I’m sorry, that was in the wrong direction. You can be as mopey as you want just…
tell me what you need and I’ll give it to you. I can at least do that for you.
I ignored my brother’s messages today. It made me feel worse. I made him cookies but I still feel bad. I just feel bad, Jesse. And I don’t know what to do with that.
…I’m sorry, Nicky. I feel bad sometimes too, like when Eli or Rini say that they don’t like who I am because I ignore them too much. I don’t mean to, but I just feel bad.
Maybe…maybe we should cuddle? Or try baking again. And I can help this time! That way they won’t burn. I’m good at helping you, you know that.
Text: I will be fine.
Text: I’m worried about your brother.
Text: Thats what I meant, for him. If you need anything for him. I know he’s probably not being sunshine Nicky right now.
Text: Of course. It’s my nature to worry about myself, but you’re right.
Text: I hope I can make him smile.
Can you just be my Jesse?
This is the least fluffy I’ve felt since…since my own auction.
I’ll be your Brian, Michael.
I’m not feeling very fluffy either, but…I can try to make you smile. And Herc too, because he keeps jumping up on the bed.
