After a bit more of her nudging, he laughed, softly nudging her back with his elbow. “Nah. You’re not a Gremlin. I was just being an ass.” In retrospect, he deserved to have been hit the way she did. In fact, he’d said such horrible things in the past, he deserved more. Kensei sighed, shaking his head. She was too nice to him. He didn’t deserve to be around someone like her. He face her for a moment, softly patting her head. “You’re really nice, y’know that?”
Miki sighed, a quiet pause as she thought about Kensei’s words. It had been his intent to compliment her, but it reminded her again. To no fault of his own, it was simply her dwelling nature. If she was so nice, why was she so hated by some? Had she not been as nice as she thought? Her face fell, her eyes trailing down to the sheets on the bed.”Am I really that nice? Why do I get hated then….?
