[still working on it]

Riley laughed softly and nodded. "He certainly does, you're right," she agreed.

“Whats got your heart strings taught about this man...boy?” Caleb asked leaned his head into her thigh.

[Yeah, I'm almost done]

"My heart didn't have anything to do with it until the other night. I just simply thought we were friends but I think...I think he sees it as more than that? I don't want to hurt him, of course, and I suppose I never really put any thought toward the idea because I've always had Jimmy," Riley sighed and ghosted her fingers over Caleb's hair. "But that's the thing, I've always had Jimmy. He's pretty much all I've ever known. Is that bad?"

Caleb closed his eyes for a moment, talking about someone’s problems were better than thinking his own. “There are both sides to the argument... one being of what you have with Jimmy is genuine why change? You love him, and he loves you. You’re first love, you have a child with him. However, are you choosing to settle for someone that you know, something familiar?”

"That's the problem, I really don't know," Riley sighed and shook her head. "I'm sorry, this is probably really boring to you, isn't it?"

“Not at all, i just want to see you making the right decision. Don’t string the poor boy along okay? He’s got enough going on his plate.” Caleb sat up once more and massaged his knees.

Riley nodded and her eyes followed Caleb's hands. "How's it feeling?" she asked, looking at him again.

“Unnerving, Danny was asking whether I wanted prosthetics you know? To at least move about, but I don’t think there is any need for me to.” Caleb chuckled wincing his hand circling his stitches above the knee.

"Why's that?" Riley tilted her head. "A prosthetic might be a good idea, you know."

"It wouldn't be the same as a real leg you know?" Caleb shrugged it off, "I don't have a job like Danny has, I spend most of my time in my office so why should I?"

"It's a big house, Caleb," Riley frowned a bit but then shrugged. "I suppose I understand, though. But don't you want to be more independent?"

“I would yes, but the sheer pain of it. I see the soldiers downstairs in the ballroom, trying to recuperate looks painful.” Caleb again clenched his jaw and patted her hand. “It’s getting a bit cold, do you want to come back to the house with me?”

"Sure," Riley nodded and went behind the chair to push him back up toward the gardens.

“I’ve been drowning in my own thoughts recently, and wondering if one can explode from having so many thoughts...” Caleb leaned back in his chair, sighing.

"Tell me about it," Riley said as she pushed him. "You just listened to me complain, it's only fair you can do the same."
