He walked in and looked at the nice dinner, and Melinda all dressed up. "Did I miss the black tie memo?" He asked walking in. "You look lovely."

"It smells great," he said. "But I have to admit... I feel under dressed," he said with a slightly joking grin.

"Is dinner ready? I wouldn't want to delay it."

"I'll be quick," he said nodding. He disappeared into the back room. He came out a few minutes later in a nice pair of pants, and a polo. And he'd taken the time to comb his hair.

"Alright. Fairly busy the last few weeks with students going back to school. Now that it's started, things are slowing down and we're doing a lot of restocking and inventory and such."

He shrugged. "For a bit. But I think the store is more exciting during rush season, too." He smiled. "So how was your day?"

He nodded. "Where to this time?"




NewEric

He blinked. "That's... intense."




NewEric

He frowned slightly. "You seem... reluctant. What's holding you back?"




NewEric

He'd also felt the tension, and felt like he'd been walking on eggshells around her lately. "Okay." He paused. "So... do you have ideas on how to fix that?"




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 17:42, August 2, 2019 (UTC)

He nodded slowly. "I'm not upset with you anymore," he said. "It seems... it feels like you're still upset with me. So maybe... if you could explain why... I can apologize and we can figure it out."




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus

 – 18:00, August 2, 2019 (UTC)

"I'm sorry you still feel hurt," he said sincerely. "What are your worries?"

"I felt like I was telling you the same thing over and over and you... seemed to believe I was giving you the wrong answer. That was extremely frustrating."




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 18:19, August 2, 2019 (UTC)

He frowned. "I told you I didn't want to several times, Melinda. I said it was too risky and that it wasn't a good idea. You didn't respect my answer."




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 18:27, August 2, 2019 (UTC)

He frowned. "Okay." He paused, wanting to argue the point further. He took a moment to consider his words. "Then next time... make that clearer, so I can clearer. You just... kept repeating yourself and that didn't feel like you were trying to... help me to a decision that in my mind was already made. That felt like you were trying to... beat me down until I agreed to go looking for him."




NewEric

 – 18:36, August 2, 2019 (UTC)

"If I wanted to do it... what makes you think I'd forget something like that?" he asked.




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 18:43, August 2, 2019 (UTC)

He still believed that she thought doing it was the right choice... and he still felt like it wasn't a good idea. "I suppose I see what you're saying. But no," he said, hoping to be clear. "I don't want to find him."




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 18:48, August 2, 2019 (UTC)

He frowned. "I was highly frustrated," he agreed. "But never angry. I'm... sorry I came across that way. Can you... tell me what you felt or what I said or did to make you think I was enraged?"




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 19:03, August 2, 2019 (UTC)

"I felt like I wasn't being heard. I felt that I had been clear with my words... obviously I know now that wasn't the case. But in the moment, I felt like I was being clear and all I kept getting from you was, what I felt like, was a questioning response. I didn't understand what it was that you didn't understand, so I made an extreme leap. I felt like I was being berated into giving only a singular answer that I didn't want to give.... which is sort of a softer version of what my parents would do. So I made the leap hoping you'd see where my frustration was coming from, and that you'd back off."




NewEric

He gave her a look. "Melinda, you kept on and on and on about I didn't want you to forget and it was like you had no idea that you were making me frustrated. You claimed you didn't have ulterior motives, which was hard to believe because you kept harping on the same line. Since it seemed like you didn't understand that I was upset that you wouldn't be truthful with me, I tried to show you what you were doing by comparing it to an extreme."




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 19:26, August 2, 2019 (UTC)

"I didn't think you were being truthful, Melinda," he said, giving her an even gaze. "And all I was doing was trying to get you to admit that you did want me to agree to finding my brother. I thought the shock value of the statement would force you to admit your agenda."




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 19:35, August 2, 2019 (UTC)

His eyes narrowed. "No, you haven't. So I didn't understand why you would do it now. But all the evidence I had before me was that you were hiding something from me, Melinda. And that's not okay, either."




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 20:00, August 2, 2019 (UTC)

"I DID ASK!" He said, now angry. "Twice I asked you why you were asking, and twice you repeated your same damn line, Melinda. You didn't give me a different answer. Stop pretending you're an innocent princess who can do no wrong. I already apologized twice for comparing you to my parents. I know that was wrong."

"And you're emotionless for someone who claimed to be such an emotionally driven person that she had to run away for three days after our last fight."

"I want you to at least try to see it from my perspective." He paused. He knew in this moment that they had reached make or break. His tone shifted slightly. It wasn't mean or angry. Defeated... resigned, perhaps. "I feel like you're making me out to be an angry, deranged... monster who snapped at you in a way that wasn't necessary. When in that moment I felt like I was being cornered. So what is it you need from me?"




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 03:50, August 3, 2019 (UTC)

He nodded in return. "And... how it's made you feel is... that I'm making you out to be something you feel you aren't?" He asked in a calm voice. He paused. The irony was right there. "Sounds... quite a bit like what I also said and felt. Seems that we both... may have been blown out of proportion since we both feel we've been turned into something contradictory to how we feel about ourselves."

"Beyond apologizing to each other?" he asked warily, wondering what her issue still was.



NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus

 – 15:09, August 5, 2019 (UTC)

Because you brought everything up again... "So... what do you think needs to happen?"




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 15:15, August 5, 2019 (UTC)

He frowned. "I thought the disconnect was we didn't like being made out to things that we aren't. Was there something more for you?"




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 15:21, August 5, 2019 (UTC)

"It would seem that... we'll have to keep ourselves in check when we're feeling a disagreement start. Perhaps... take some space earlier to breathe so things don't escalate like they did?"




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 15:25, August 5, 2019 (UTC)

He nodded. "An outside individual who's impartial is probably a good idea... did you want to start seeing one... right away or just... when we're fighting?" He paused. "I guess... aside from all this... I didn't think we had a lot of problems as a couple."




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 15:31, August 5, 2019 (UTC)

He nodded. "I'm fine with it." He looked at her earnestly. "I don't want to throw in the towel with you."




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 15:36, August 5, 2019 (UTC)

"I understand," he said nodding. "And I said that I'm fine with going to see a counselor."




NewEric

"Your sister worked for the hospital... and doesn't Faith specialize in... brain magic?" he asked. "I'm sure one of them could recommend someone."




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 15:50, August 5, 2019 (UTC)

He nodded. "So we'll start there and if she doesn't have any recommendations... we'll figure out what to do."




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus

 – 15:54, August 5, 2019 (UTC)

He reached across the table for her hand. "You know I love you, right?"




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 17:04, August 5, 2019 (UTC)

That crushed him, and the devastation was all over his face. "What... can I do?"




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 17:18, August 5, 2019 (UTC)

He nodded numbly. "If you want... I can go sleep on a work friend's couch or something...."




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 17:23, August 5, 2019 (UTC)

He shook his head quickly. "No, I want to stay." He paused. "I only offered because of... what you said. I wanted to make sure... you still wanted me around while you... heal." The last word was spoken painfully.




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus

 – 17:29, August 5, 2019 (UTC)

He nodded. "When do you leave for Antarctica?" He let out a small chuckle. Saying those words out loud... so casually... he'd never expected that.




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 17:33, August 5, 2019 (UTC)

"Were you leaving tomorrow or something?"




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 17:44, August 5, 2019 (UTC)

He nodded. "It's not going to put your job in danger or anything, right? Rescinding on the trip?"




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 17:52, August 5, 2019 (UTC)

He looked at her carefully. "It's not going to mess up future opportunities or anything at all?"




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 17:56, August 5, 2019 (UTC)

"Melinda, I'm not going anywhere. Maybe the space would be good. Show you that you will always be able to come back to me." He paused. "Life... doesn't always get put on hold just because you're fighting with your partner."




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus

 – 18:02, August 5, 2019 (UTC)

He nodded. "I've got dishes. Why don't you go take a steamy bubble bath or something?"




NewEric

Eric Selwyn Ravenclaw Alumnus
-Jack of all trades... Master of none

 – 18:08, August 5, 2019 (UTC)

"I'll be up in a bit," he said, standing and beginning to clear the table.



NewEric

He gave her a smile as he started on dishes. He took his time with them... making it stretch to last nearly forty minutes before heading upstairs.
