[Boone knocks on the door to their bedroom, he opens it just a crack.]
Hey Al, you in there?
I got something I need to talk to you about.

*Alex is sorting through some clothes when he knocks. She turns around. Stands there a moment without saying anything.*

Uhmm, sure. You wanna come in?
ifoundsomepens: Looking and Observingifoundsomepens on December 15th, 2009 10:28 pm (UTC)
All right.
[He steps inside the room, looking around awkwardly.]
Charlie and I were talking about getting the survivors together... for something like a group meeting. To discuss everything that's happened and figure out where to go from there, none of us really feel safe anymore... so uh... I guess I was wondering if you wanted to go.

*She stays quiet a moment, a frown forming on her face. She is only half willing to let him know how annoyed it is that he'd talk to her about that when they have other things they should talk about.*

Maybe. Who else is going to come?
ifoundsomepens: Look backifoundsomepens on December 15th, 2009 10:36 pm (UTC)
Ana Lucia, Charlie, Sayid, Desmond...
that's all who I can think of right now.

*She sits on the bed, thinking to herself.*

You should invite John.

Charlie said he'd talk to him. I don't know if he's coming or not yet.
Alex: prettylisten_to_locke on December 15th, 2009 10:40 pm (UTC)
*Alex looks up at him.*

Sure... I'll come.
ifoundsomepens: Kind eyesifoundsomepens on December 15th, 2009 11:07 pm (UTC)
Good.
We haven't exactly planned the date yet but... I'll tell you when we do.
Alex: idklisten_to_locke on December 15th, 2009 11:22 pm (UTC)
Right...

*She looks away.*

Was... Is that what you wanted to talk about?
ifoundsomepens: :\ifoundsomepens on December 15th, 2009 11:40 pm (UTC)
Pretty much.

Is there uh,... anything you wanna talk about?
Alex: listeninglisten_to_locke on December 16th, 2009 12:21 am (UTC)
*She hesitates. She feels like she has way too much to talk to him about. But none of it would go well, she fears. She shakes her head slowly.*

No.

Are you feeling okay?
ifoundsomepens: Thinking/Dorkyifoundsomepens on December 16th, 2009 03:55 am (UTC)
For the most part, yeah.
Still healing.
Alex: thoughtful-sadlisten_to_locke on December 16th, 2009 04:00 am (UTC)
Right...

*She lowers her head again.*

Do you want to sleep here tonight? I can spend the night at Shannon's or Sun's.
ifoundsomepens: Miffedifoundsomepens on December 16th, 2009 04:18 am (UTC)
No.
This is your house too, you don't have to leave.
I don't want you to either.
Alex: hmmlisten_to_locke on December 16th, 2009 04:32 am (UTC)
Boone, I can't lie to you.

*She takes a deep breath and rises. She takes a couple of steps in his direction so she's closer to him and they're standing in front of each other.*

I'm just not sure how... Look, I'm just really tired of doing this. Us, trying to live here when we hardly talk to each other and you don't sleep here. If I go sleep somewhere else... At least I'll be somewhere else. Not alone in here with you across the hall.

I don't mean to be difficult, but like I said... I don't want to lie.

Yeah, and like us avoiding each other will make it any better.

Look Alex, I'm over it. You don't have to feel bad about anything anymore. Seriously. The fact that you keep on walking around apologetically is what makes it so weird for me. It's over. It's done. I don't care about it anymore.
Alex: dont approvelisten_to_locke on December 16th, 2009 04:48 am (UTC)
You're not over it.

You don't sleep in your own bed, and you won't even stand close to me!

*She sighs exasperated.*

I tried to kiss you yesterday and you pulled your chair back, Boone!

ifoundsomepens: Wthisthis?ifoundsomepens on December 16th, 2009 04:51 am (UTC)
Because you keep acting so weird about everything! It's really uncomfortable for me. I'm not going to kiss you if it feels really unnatural, okay?
Alex: disgustedlisten_to_locke on December 16th, 2009 05:04 am (UTC)
Well, I did feel guilty Boone... and then I didn't really know how to act around you.

So, yeah... I ended up acting like a fool... Fine. Sorry. Let's stop this now.

ifoundsomepens: Disapprovingifoundsomepens on December 16th, 2009 05:12 am (UTC)
Fine. I'm cool with that.
Alex: shy smilelisten_to_locke on December 16th, 2009 05:24 am (UTC)
Good.

*She smiles, blushing slightly.*

The other day when Sayid came... You were amazing to me. You made me feel, well... safe.
ifoundsomepens: :\ifoundsomepens on December 16th, 2009 05:33 am (UTC)
Well, even if I am mad at you, I still want to protect you.

Any guy would do it.
Alex: poutlisten_to_locke on December 16th, 2009 05:37 am (UTC)
You're just saying that cause, well cause you love me... But I've never had that, Boone.

*She looks up at him, her eyes happy for the first time in a few days.*

Let's never screw this up, okay?
