    Listening to her was painful. Listening to her talk about how tired she was, how hurt she was, all of it, it destroyed him from the inside out. And there was anger, God, so much anger, so much fury, all of it working up and churning inside of him like a boat in a hurricane.

    How dare her husband treat her like this. The so-called love of her life. The man who made a commitment to be by her side forever, to love her and cherish her, to never forsake her as long as they both lived? Did he even know what he was giving up? What an incredible goddess he had in his hand here? Or was she just a bloody trophy for him to put up on a shelf and take to Ministry balls or whatever else?

    Not for the first time Alexander wondered what would happen if he and this Owen Locklear ever came face-to-face. What would he do? Would he be able to hold it together or would he just punch the everliving shit out of the man's face?

    You're a Slytherin, Alexander, he reminded himself. If you can't exercise subtlety, then you don't deserve to have that distinction.

    Fine. All he could think, then, was that he hoped for Locklear's sake that the two of them never met.

    "I could never hurt you," he murmured as Michelle pulled back, took his hands, told him exactly what he needed to hear. It was a challenge. A call to arms. A desire for him to prove himself to her, to show exactly how he felt, exactly how he could treat her. And God, that's what he wanted. The chance to shower her in everything he felt. The permission to do it rather than having to hide it. He wasn't a fool. He knew for a fact that he'd have to keep it under wraps around the faculty, the students, her children (Merlin, if her children found out...). But he thought he could do that.

    He'd take whatever little piece of Michelle Locklear that she wanted to give him.

    "Just...do one thing for me, Michelle," he said softly as he touched her cheek again, marveled for the millionth time at how beautiful she was. "Tell me what you need. Don't ever hide it or be scared to say it. Tell me what you want and need. Okay? I'm not a Legilimens." It was a terrible joke, but he was so happy that he might even have a chance with her that he couldn't help smiling a little and breathing a laugh. "Start now." Because he was desperate to do something to show her how he felt. He wanted to kiss her. To swing her into his arms and spin her around. To carry her away and make love to her until she forgot every single one of her fears. But no, he couldn't.

    Not unless she wanted him to.

    God, he was probably being an arse, making her pick things when she was clearly on an emotional rollercoaster. Of course she didn't know what she wanted. Of course. And he was a bloody jerk for thinking she'd just...know. What had he been expecting? Her to beg him to shag her or something? Or for a snog? No, all she could come up with was a good office cleaning, and that was that.

    Still. Whatever would make her happy.

    He leaned close and brushed his nose against hers, a quick and quiet Eskimo kiss, before giving her a little smile. "I will clean the fuck out of this office, if that will prove myself to you," he teased with a chuckle. Came to his feet and immediately started nudging the broken dangerous things into a pile with his foot, since he couldn't very well just summon a broom or evanesco everything. Once it was all in a pile he went to collect papers and things that had flown everywhere.

    As he did so he was considering. As much as he hated having to make choices for them right now - if it was up to him he'd say bugger the husband and pick himself with absolutely no consequences - she apparently wanted him to. And thus he'd try. He paused as he squatted down, tried to put the papers in an even pile before he tried to sort through them later. "...tell you what." Glanced up at Michelle rather tentatively. "We can...just...take it as it comes? A day to day thing?" Cocked his head to the side as he bit his bottom lip. "Keep up the lessons. Just let everything flow naturally for you. If you want to touch me, you can. If you want to kiss me, you can. And if you need space one day, you can have that too. And I'll follow your lead. No pushing. Just...I'll be patient. And you can figure it out on your own time." He paused. "Though, I'll be honest, I'd rather like to give you a picnic under the stars when the weather gets a bit warmer. If you'll let me."

    Under the stars for a number of reasons. One, it was how they'd met. Very romantic. All of that. But two...there wouldn't be students or faculty to see them. And he felt that'd be the best for now.

    "Thank you, for cleaning things up. You didn't have to."

    "I know," he murmured, reaching out to tuck her hair behind her ear with another little smile. "But I wanted to. Not gonna leave you in complete chaos here or anything, am I? I'd be a bastard if I did that."

    And it was true. The poor woman had been through enough shit. He wasn't going to stand there and let her go through more just because there was so much to clean up, to put back to rights. No, if he'd started this, he was going to help her finish it. "A little bit my fault anyway, isn't it? Given the circumstances." After all, he'd been the one that had stirred up all of those confusing feelings in the first place.

    When she pointed out he had work that he more than likely needed to be doing he huffed out a sigh, ruffled his hair as he looked at the clock. "...it's true, unfortunately." He'd blown off most of his duties this morning just to come see her, to try to figure out exactly what crazy ride their relationship was going to go on. He bit his bottom lip as he looked at her again, true regret written plain in his eyes. "...listen, I'll come back tonight." He came forward on instinct, touched her arms and leaned in as if to kiss her before he remembered his own rules - we're taking this a day at a time, and she's leading - so instead he pulled her in for another hug. "If you want me to, at least." Alexander touched a soft kiss to the crown of her head, reveled in how silky it was beneath his lips. "You can send me an owl if you want to see me. I'll be here in minutes."

    Oh, Michelle. His sweet, lovely Michelle. He feels the shape of her pressed against him, the warmth of her body, and he sighs gently against her hair, just for a moment sinking into her. He wants to take care of her, to cherish her, to give her everything that she deserves, that she's never had a chance to get before...

    ...but it's still early. There's time for that later. So when she pulls back he lets her, gives another small smile.

    He only gets one word from her at first - "Okay" - but it's a start, isn't it? It means she's willing to try. It means they have a path they can walk on together, and just...be, yeah?

    He nods when she asks him to come back tonight and leans in, touching a soft kiss to her forehead just one more time, just wanting to show her every second that he still cares so that she never has to doubt it. "Will do," he murmurs, then backs up slowly toward the door. "...take care of yourself today, yeah? Just...I don't know." He even laughs a little, just a bit more nervous than he should be. "Yeah, I'll see you tonight."

    Alexander makes his way to the door, but he pauses there again, looks over his shoulder to get one last glimpse at her, to give one more smile. "Bye." And then he steps outside and shuts the door behind him.

    He leans against it for a moment, simply breathing, then tilts his head back to look at the ceiling. Merlin. What the hell are they about to get themselves into?

OOC: I legitimately thought we'd finished this thread oops...but here, finished now! 8D;;;
