“As long as I don’t hurt them, I don’t want them to be responsible for me.”
It wasn't completely true.

"Responsibility keeps us from hurting each other," Laurie said softly.

He chuckled. “I think that’s a different kind of responsibility.”

"I don't think so. Depending on people is a natural phenomenon. Otherwise, we're lacking. The responsibility that puts on the other person is just normal, Qingying. It means they understand that you trust them, that they should take care of that trust. It goes both ways. You're responsible for them, too."

It was a bit strange to be spoken to like this, but he also wasn’t one to let himself feel that it was too strange to accept.
He tilted his head. “The ‘responsibility’ I was referring to wasn’t because I would be afraid to trust them – that they wouldn’t bear the responsibility. What I meant was that I don’t want to take from them. No, I am not only giving – I know what I need and I’m not in wanting of that – but it shouldn’t be their responsibility to give.” Then, he paused, and gave Laurie a smile that was slightly playful and self-deprecating. “And it’s easy to say such things, isn’t it,” he said, referring to what Laurie had said.

"It's not just words," Laurie said. "Not for me. Giving and taking is a balance. We all give, and we all take. I'm not just some kid spouting nonsense." He smiled back.

“I know.” His smile was pleasant and uncondescending. “You are a kid but it is not nonsense. But, it is easier said than done. And… people change. The present person maybe can be trusted, but words may not be kept a few years on.”

"I don't think people change. I think what's inside them, it's always going to be inside them. If you find someone you can trust, really trust." He shrugged. "Finding those people on the other hand... yeah. It's rough."

“I think people change, but, well,” he lifted his hands as a light-hearted shrug. “I’m still going to say it’s worth trusting people.”

"I trust you." Laurie smiled. "Maybe not, maybe not always. I get stuck in, in old shit. It's hard, you know. You're nice and, fuck is it hard to trust. But when push comes to shove. I think, I--" he cut himself off, leaning forward to conceal his face. "I think, I think you'll be there. When you find people who will be there. That's, you know, that's what matters."

Laurie couldn’t see Qingying’s face either cos Laurie’s was concealed. >_>

He dipped his head.
“Sorry. That’s not the – main reason why I… want to be with you. It’s not because I don’t want to be some type of person. Usually that doesn’t cross my mind.”

He laughed and glanced up. "I know, Qin." He repeated Mahra's pronunciation fondly. "Me, neither."

He looked down with a slightly troubled smile. He’d said ‘I hope so’ to Mahra, and Mahra had said ‘I know’. His smile softened as he decided to go for an in-between. “I’d like to think so.”

“Mhm,” he nodded softly. “It seems like he’d get along with most people.” He’d gotten an idea of what Laurie was warning him about. “He is a gentle child. Ah-” He raised his hands. “Not that you’re not.” Then he made a funny expression with his head tilted and gaze towards the ceiling, like okay maybe Laurie sometimes wasn’t gentle in that way?

Laurie laughed at that, genuinely, sitting back to reveal his face again. "No, Mar is definitely the more diplomatic of us." He knew himself. He was harsher, more ready to do the necessary evil.

“Mmm.” He shook his head, smile slightly playful. “Sometimes you’re more shouty.” He raised his hands again. “That’s okay.” He didn’t mind.

He opened his mouth wide but the sound that emerged was soft, mimicking with exaggerated expressions and arm motions instead. “What do you wannnt!
Whyyy!”

He smiled and looked over at Laurie; he liked to tease but he was gentle about it.

At that Laurie completely shut down. He just sat forward with his knees on his elbow. "Yeah," he muttered softy. Qingying liked to tease, but Laurie did not like being teased about his emotions. Qingying's imitation and hand movements had cut. "Yeah, OK," he swiped his eyes. "I'm sorry." He wondered if Qingying had thought that was funny.

And that was why Qingying had looked over at him; to not go too far. But it seemed that was too far. One had to learn another’s limits.
“Orie… why are you sorry?”
