“Sorry about last week, Becky,” he said with a sorrowful frown.
“For what exactly?” she asked, slightly taken aback. If anything, she should be apologizing to him for being such a burden. Even though she knew that Kelley had been her primary caregiver, Dorian was never too far behind. Often bringing her tea, water, and tissues.
He looked guiltily at her as though he’d done something unforgivable. “For what I said last week, about you being a girl. As if that should be enough reason to not welcome you here.”
“Oh… that’s all right,” she said with a tiny shrug.
It wasn’t really okay, though. It had hurt her feelings at the time. Not to mention the fact that none of them had stuck up for her, not even Kelley. It wasn’t her fault that she was female. She’d been simply hoping for a place to live with people that were kind and respectful.
“No, it’s not,” he said with remorse. “I made it sound as if you wouldn’t be safe here. That’s the furthest thing from the truth. In fact, Becky, you’ll never be safer than here with us… with me.”
