Simon’s gaze, currently fixed on the floor by his feet, jolted over to Tehodis incredulously as she for some reason bullshitted the shittiest bullshit that Simon had ever heard about him somehow being the hero, keeping Endless safe until they could get there. Even on his most self-absorbed days he would have known that was bullshit. She was trying to talk him up, he knew, but he grimaced at the idea that anyone should be made to feel he had done anything but completely fail them both out there.
Endless, meanwhile, seemed to buy it. He blushed his adorable blush and thanked him. He thanked him. For almost getting the both of them killed. Almost, but not quite. And that was only because Charlotte and Tehodis had come to save them both. He was already ashamed but this just made him angry, perhaps irrationally so. He took a breathe and balled his fists in his lap and nodded once. ”I’m just glad you’re ok,” was his eventual reply. He didn’t want to call Tehodis a liar, but he couldn’t accept thanks for something he didn’t deserve. ‘Saving’ him didn’t count when he was the one who put him in danger in the first place.
Charlotte came over then with a cup of the potion, asking him to check it over and ensure it was ok. He took it and glanced at it but huffed a laugh and said, ”You and I both know it’s perfect, but thank you.”
He stood, Kilik hopping down from his lap as he did so but sticking close by like she didn’t want to leave his side, and moved over to where Endless was. ”This might suck. You don’t have to drink it right now if you don’t want to, but it’s ready when you are.”
