Jax: [...] I’ll do it
Jax: It’s only fair
Jax: You’ve put up with a lot of crap from me
Jax: And I’ve blamed you for everything. Even when it wasn’t your fault
Jax: So I’m sorry, about London. About everything I said
Jax: You’ve done so much for me, Nick
Jax: You went on national TV. You wrote to all the big newspapers
Jax: You even did an interview at the convention about me
Jax: I just can’t figure out why
Jax: Why me? I’ve only ever lived behind a mask
Jax: I was a handle on a forum, a name on a screen. You said it yourself, once
Jax: So why? Why did you fight for me?
Question is rhetorical. She pauses.
Jax: I think I know the answer now
Jax: I’ve been thinking about it almost every day
Jax: I know you like me, maybe even a lot. And that’s terrifying for me to think about
Jax: Because I never wanted to let anyone get close to me again
Jax: Close enough to hurt me, close enough to ruin everything that I wanted to be
Jax: And you did that. But I’m still right here
Jax: And these stupid, fluffy, sentimental feelings
Jax: They’re not going away


Nikolas: Jax?
Nikolas: Look, I know you don’t want to talk me
Nikolas: And god, I spent all night wanting to hate you
Nikolas: Because that would be easier, you know?
Nikolas: Easier than wishing I could talk to you
Nikolas: Easier than wishing we could just go back to the way things used to be
Nikolas: Fuck, Jax
Nikolas: I wish I could forget everything that happened
Nikolas: But I can’t. I can’t forget about the moment I woke up in your room, with the first and worst hangover I’ve ever had
Nikolas: I can’t forget about the moment I realized that *this* girl
Nikolas: This incredible, smart, snarky, sarcastic girl
Nikolas: Was *the* JaximusPrime, that I’d admired for YEARS
Nikolas: I never thought I’d get to meet you! Ever!
Nikolas: I thought we’d always just be names on a screen, or handles in a chat room
Nikolas: And now…
Nikolas: Now I’m scared I’ve ruined everything, just by being who I am
Nikolas: A boy, a prince, a liar
Nikolas: Jax, I hope you’re reading these messages
Nikolas: Please don’t delete them
Nikolas: We never have to talk again, if you don’t want to. It’s completely your choice
Nikolas: But it would mean a lot to me if you would hear me out
