Her eyes were hollow with exhaustion that had nothing to do with physical tiredness, but there was a determined cast to the sharp lines of her face. After a slight hesitation, she reached out and placed her hands on his shoulders. "Maybe it isn't the day or the moment for this," she began haltingly. "But up until an hour ago I was pretty sure Sergei had killed you...so, I don't --" Gavi took a deep, shuddery breath. "I don't want you to leave here thinking I meant one thing when I actually meant something else."

"You don't have to explain yourself to me." Weariness tore in at the edges of his voice, usually so practiced and unflappably calm. His body was tightly contained from hers, his arms kept in and hands resting at his knees. "After everything you've been through, I shouldn't have laid anything else on you."

Lips pressing stubbornly, she waited him out before she spoke again. "I would've told you eventually," she said quietly. "Like everything else. But this knowledge is a burden -- all of it -- and I never wanted to be that to you. I mean -" Gavi took another calming breath, lifting a hand to his face and tracing the tip of her thumb beneath the dark circle under his eye. "Just look at what I did to you."

His face tilted a fraction to meet her touch, and his eyes locked with hers, searching and earnest. "Who were you protecting more? Was it me or yourself?"

Her lower lip trembled, but she forced herself to maintain eye contact with him. "Keeping you at a distance has never been because I'm ashamed or afraid of your judgement," she said softly. "I just...I thought maybe if you stayed in that nebulous grey area forever, you wouldn't get hurt."

"Hurt by what?" he asked, his brows drawing together.

"Me -- this -- anything," she muttered, placing her hand back on his shoulder. Her gaze dropped to the notch of his throat and she swallowed hard before she returned her eyes to his. "I don't...know if you've noticed, but the people I love don't exactly have good survival odds."

There were a few technicalities with this reasoning that he decided to forego pointing out. Instead, he held her gaze with conviction in his eyes and said, "The only thing that hurts me is having to stay at this distance from you. I'm in love with you, Gavi."

And if she was actually a spy then at least this was good practice for the real one. ⊙︿⊙

She was visibly stunned. Even though she'd been the one to initiate this suicide mission of raw, unfiltered honesty, Gavi hadn't expected much more than a shaky truce to come of it, if they were lucky. Her fingers curled into the material of his shirt, grounding herself in his physical presence and looking into his eyes for reassurance that this was really happening.

"Shaz," she whispered, her voice breaking softly on the word as she realised what the last seven weeks must have been like for him. She slid forward along the bench to bow her head and brush her lips against his; the pain and buzzy numbness that accompanied the action entirely worth it.

She didn't have to move much because as soon as he sensed it, he propped his hands either side of her, his arms framing her, and rose to meet her with a delicate kiss--a mere whisper of breath over her skin and a brush of his lips, not even enough to taste her, before he pulled back just enough to look at her with hooded eyes.

As he broke the kiss, Gavi traced the sharp angles of his jaw with her fingertips, reverence in her touch like she was trying to learn him anew. Her gaze was soft and filled with longing, almost - but not quite - disguising the guilt and sorrow that shadowed it where their eyes locked. She curled into the pseudo-embrace his arms had formed around her and, in a hushed tone, wondered, "Is there a lot you need to take care of before we can go home?"

His lashes flicked against his cheekbones as his eyes traced over the shape of her lips, raw though they were, then skipped over the bruises and scars of her face to entangle with her gaze. Tilting his jaw against her touch, he nodded and said, "They'll want to question you too, and I need to see if I can get you a disrupting potion to shorten the standard containment period."

A creeping sense of dread began to form, scaling her spine and folding her shoulders inwards, her eyes going out of focus as she thought about explaining everything that had happened to a faceless, indifferent pair of investigators. Digging up the buried past with Ash was one thing; she'd been there, and it was as much a part of her story as it was Gavi's.

The pads of her fingers skimmed down over the pulse in his throat, before she lowered her hands into her lap and closed her eyes. "I really messed things up," she breathed, a notch forming between her brows. "It was so -- so obvious, and I..." she twisted the hem of her shirt in her grip, her voice lowering until it was almost inaudible. "I just wanted to believe he was a good person."

"Hey, don't put this on yourself... you didn't make him the way he was, and he had everyone fooled. Anyone who wasn't probably ended up dead."

Shazad sank back to a crouch, leaving only one hand on the bench next to her leg in a sliver of contact.

She sucked in a breath, her expression flinching slightly as if remembering something disturbing. "Yeah..."

As he studied her expression, his brows crinkled together and the look in his eyes sharpened. "Do you know what Sergei was planning next?"

Gavi shook her head. "He called her around New Year; he didn't seem to know I was still alive at that point," she mumbled, keeping her gaze on her hands. "We didn't actually see him until three days ago. It was strange...he'd gone to a lot of trouble to set things up so Ash could have her shot at Tristan," her voice wavered a little, but she forged on. "Even though it would've been easier and less risk to everyone if he'd just..."

Her words trailed off and she tucked her hair behind her ear, glancing at him once more. "He made it seem like killing Tristan was the end goal, but Uncle Sergei...I don't know, he's not like that. He doesn't make strategic decisions for emotional reasons."

At the last words, a sense of unease prickled down his back. "What other angles do you think he might've had?"

"He didn't say anything that stood out, but then -" the corner of her lips twitched ruefully, her fingers brushing the bruising at her temple. "I'm not certain I'd even remember it if he did."

"How vengeful is he? On top of everything else, Tristan slept with his wife."
