Len listened to Alexi talk, his hands going into balls the further he went on. After he was finished, Len turned to face him, put his hands on both of his shoulders and stared into his face, his own looking hurt and confused. "Listen here, I know you didn't have a good life, I get that. I didn't either. Life isn't fair, i get that too. I'm deeply sorry you were beat everyday by Moon, but putting more weight on my back, wanting to make friends is not the way to get any. He isn't dead, i'm not that stupid, Alexi. Klaus throught he got him, he was wrong. You said you got him, my life says he'll come back for us." He stopped for a moment, hoping Alexi was listening. He continued. "You don't know what I had to go through in life. You don't, Klaus doesn't, Toris doesn't nor Moon. So tell me hundred times you are trying your hardest, i'm sorry I can't nor will I trust every sob story that comes to my door. I've been ripped apart before, numerous of times..I don't want to go through it again. I'm a child, Alexi, I have the heart of a child! Why can't you get that? Klaus did..that's why i'm looking for him! He got me, he understands me more than everyone in the world! My hate for you isn't hundred percent personal, i'm just trying to ####### out how I won't get hurt again..." Len stopped talking, hanging his head. Tears started running down his face, "I'm sorry you are alone, I am too" and he turned away from him. He lifted his head up not looking back as he kept walking "Listen to my footprints if your eyes still hurt and let's go"
As long as you're mine, i'm fine
