He couldn’t help himself but to smile when Psyche agreed she needed help; he was genuinely concerned about her well-being, and if he could be of any help getting her comfortable, he would be more than glad. Anyways, if this place had medical supplies that could help Chloe, that would be the perfect scenario, and Renato was truly hoping they could give them some antibiotics, otherwise, he would promptly volunteer for scavenging around the area, no matter how dangerous it would be. One thing he had as a goal was to get Chloe back up and kicking; she was way too young to die a meaningless death.
Still, Renato didn’t fail to notice that, once Nora got back outside with her old blond friend, Kelsie’s eyes widened and she shouted the name he heard before. He narrowed his eyes, taking a mental note of that fact before Kelsie dragged him to the back of the Humvee. When she grabbed him by the arm his heart skipped a beat, but he wasn’t quite sure why it did that, it could be due to many reasons right now. ”Kelsie, you okay?” he asked, showing true concern, but dodging any direct question. She skipped the subject, which only helped bugging him even further and asked if they could get Chloe inside, he didn’t object and instead just nodded. ”Don’t worry, I can get her inside… You don’t need to give me a hand.” he said, cracking a polite smile, still, he has something in his eyes, something that was leaving him rather unease.
He noticed her staring back at Charles and sighed, feeling rather down with that. ”Not you…” he thought to himself, hoping to be wrong in his assumptions, but without a word, he carefully and kindly took Chloe into his arms without harming or bothering her and then head straight into the room Jennifer indicated. Once in the room, Renato carefully put her into the most comfortable looking bed and quickly grabbed a towel, wet it in cold water and put on her forehead. ”You are gonna be alright, Chloe… I will make sure of thar!” he said in a kind and caring tone. Once he did that, he turned back to Psyche with a kind of odd smile; if she was good at reading people’s emotion, it would be rather clear he was forcing his smile.
”Chloe is gonna be alright. If they can’t give us medicine, I will scavenge it myself. In any case, I won’t let her suffer any longer, you can be sure about that” he said in a kind and caring tone. After that he sighed, gazed away for a second and then stared back at her. His eyes were apprehensive somehow, but he needed to let it out. ”I didn’t fail to notice you staring at that guy… Charles, you knew his name too. I don’t mean to pry but… I can’t help it… Are you alright, Kelsie? I mean… The way you looked at him… Felt like you had history…” when he said that he felt almost like his heart was about to be puked out of his mouth and due to that he gazed away again, staring at the floor, with both his hands reaching his pockets. ”Way to go, moron…” he thought to himself, feeling unease for the fact that he outright asked about the guy.
In any case, seemed like this Charles guy had some history with at least Kelsie, Nora and the woman behind him and Renato didn’t know how he felt about that; he didn’t care about the later, but the second and mostly the first bothered him to no end.
Psyche followed Renato as they were Led to the three bedrooms she asked Jennifer for. She felt safer knowing that it was just the three of the and she could avoid Charles for as long as possible. While Renato Put her in her Bed she fetched water, Clothes and some medical supplies with Jennifer. When she came back she took a dish with cool water and rags in and set them on the night stand. Emerald eyes watched as Renato carefully place one on her friend's forehead. "Jennifer has a surprisingly good stock of medical supplies and medications here. I got some good antibiotics and stuff to change her bandages later."
Psyche spoke softly as Renato turned and she could just see the forced smile on his face. He was a sweet man and started to reassure her that her friend would be fine. Chloe was a tough one and she would no doubt get through this then make lame jokes about stealing picnic baskets from yogi. His gaze moved away but when it returned she knew something was up. Just before she could ask him why he seemed so uneasy he spilled out what was bothering him. Slowly she moved out of the room and waited for him to follow. She found herself gazing out the glass Sliding door of the Apartment.
"I was hoping you didn't catch me saying his name. See I got stuck with him one night in a building waiting out a horde. I stayed up because I have sleeping problems anyway. Well, he chose to stay up with me and I'm not really sure I need to explain what happened after that." She spoke with a pause and a deep sigh escaped her lips. "I mean he didn't force me and I knew what was gonna happen staying up with him. You know us ladies got this thing that draws us to bad guys. We think we can magically change them to something better and I made the same stupid mistake."
Her tone drown out as she remembered the day he came back with Carrie. They decided they were gonna leave out and look for the woman who vanished with the baby. "I just never thought I would come across him again. I mean there's nothing between us obviously except the child I'm growing." Turning back around she let her Gaze fall on the man she was alone in the room with. Psyche wasn't good at this kind of situations and she just wasn't sure what else to say. She was curious why it bothered him but she wasn't gonna ask him about it.

Psyche came back with some medications and among them there were antibiotics and that was just perfect. Renato could exhale relieved as he ran his hand through his dark hair. He nodded in agreement when she mentioned what she had and now it was but a matter of time before Chloe was back up and kicking. Still, he couldn’t get himself completely happy because he was still bothered with his own thoughts regarding Kelsie and Charles. He was growing close to Nora, but at the same time he felt closer to Kelsie in a different, deeper way and to think they were a thing it was just bad; he wouldn’t stick his nose into her business if that was the case, but he would probably be bitter about it in silence anyway.
Anyway, when he voiced his concerns, being a little bit open about his deeper feelings, she moved out of the room, but in a way it implied it was okay for him to follow her and so he did. Once outside she began speaking, starting by saying that she was hoping he wouldn’t catch her saying his name. Renato scratched the back of his head and gazed away for a second. ”Being perceptive comes with sword training I guess…” he said, chuckling a tad bit nervously, anticipating what was about to come. Kelsie told him about her history with Charles and, in all honesty it was more than he could’ve expected and, in a way he felt good she trusted him enough to share such a personal background. At the same time he felt odd – In a bad way – to picture her with that guy.
Charles was tall, blond and full of himself. He could be the quite opposite spectrum of Renato, except for the fact that Renato’s self-esteem was right on its tracks and he was quite confident in most of his traits. The child she was caring was his even though they just had a onetime thing, it still connected them in a way. Renato didn’t care about that, it didn’t change what he ended up feeling through the days they traveled, talked and shared experiences together, but still, to be near the father of her child, it would most definitely have some impact, even though he apparently had someone, or more than one person, if Nora was also into him.
Renato sighed, still not staring at her when she finished her story by saying there was nothing between them but the child. ”I had this girl back when the world was normal. Laura was her name. I thought we could have a thing… A good thing. I thought I could changer her too… Get her life on track… But I couldn’t… It’s a common mistake, Kelsie, don’t beat yourself because of that. Laura also got pregnant… I was young… Like… 20 or so… I said I would take responsibility, but instead she chose to end it and walk away to another state…. What I mean is… It hurt me quite a lot back then, but I also learned plenty with that experience.” he paused, staring back at her with a kind smile on his face. His right hand reached her shoulder in a kind manner.
”Thank you for sharing this with me… It means a lot to feel closer to you… You have no idea!” when he said that he blushed a bit and with his free hand he scratched the back of his neck. ”Anyways… It’s gonna be fine! What happened, happened… What matters now is that you have people beside you, to support you. Like Chloe!” he said, pausing briefly. ”And me…” he said in a way more embarrassed and lower tone.
Letting her Emerald gaze fall to the floor her fingers nervously twitched with each other and she took hold of the zipper of the loose fitting hoodie. Dragging it downwards she slowly shook the zipper off and tossed the jacket to the couch. Her eyes moved around the nice decor of the place as he told his story in an effort to make her feel better. Telling her everyone makes the simple mistake but still, she should've thought more about the fact of possibly bring a life into this shitty world. A sigh crossed her lips before she let her gaze move to find him and he was surprisingly close.
She felt his hand on the bare skin of her shoulder just over the strap of the purple tank top she was wearing. He thanked her for sharing and her mind was still on the warmth she felt from his hand. "I'm glad you came with us. I don't know for sure if I trust most of the others here but at least we can keep Chloe safe." Psyche's tone was soft and her gaze locked on his. Taking a step forward her hand extended to touch the skin of his cheek. Slowly her fingers moved to rest on his shoulder as she stepped even closer.
Psyche felt a connection between them but she wasn't exactly sure what it was. There wasn't anything else spoken from her lips but instead, she leaned up and let her lips meet Renato's. It was gentle at this moment and after a few seconds, she pulled away. She wasn't exactly sure what to say as her green eyes met his then she quickly looked down. "Erhmm Sorry." She muttered quietly before she moved and found herself standing in the doorway to the shared bathroom between hers and Chloe's room. The door was left open as she peeled the shirt off and moved to the shower.
In her Time getting medical supplies from Jen she was informed that the water ran but to use it sparingly for now. Her mind was going a million miles a minute and as much as she hoped he would follow she also dreaded the awkwardness of the situation if she had misstepped a boundary. A sigh escaped her lips as she bent into the shower and turned the knobs.

She seemed rather nervous considering the fact that her fingers were twitching and that she threw her hoodie on the couch a little bit earlier, before Renato touched her bare shoulder. Her skin felt nice, but he was trying not think about it too much, he was there to support her, to be there for her, no matter the growing affection he had for her that was beyond that of a friend. Kelsie said she was glad he came with them; she wasn’t quite sure she could trust the others, but she seemed to believe they could take care of Chloe at leat. Renato nodded in reassurance. ”We will. You can count on that!” he said with a kind smile, still, to have her so close to him, gazes locked was making his heart beat faster and his cheeks to grow redder. Renato gulped as he made an effort to keep his smile from turning into a more embarrassed expression.
To his surprise, though, her hand reached his cheek and slowly moved to his shoulder as she got even closer to him. He felt a shiver running down his spine and his stomach being taken over by butterflies at this very moment. He felt the urge to kiss her, but he wasn’t quite sure he should do that, but she didn’t give him much time to think as her lips touched his own. Renato closed his eyes and tried to enjoy the most of this brief yet amazing moment. His whole body became warm like it hadn’t been in quite some time. The moment was special, though short and when she pulled away, she gazed away and apologized while walking towards the bathroom.
”Sorry for what?... It was…” he was about to speak again when he realized that speaking would just further embarrass them. Instead, he took a deep breath as he watched her get into the bathroom, leaving the door opened and taking off her shirt. Right now he was not only happy for the kiss, but feeling rather aroused. A part of him wasn’t really satisfied, he was afraid she would think this was a mistake later on, like it was with Charles, but at the same time he knew he was developing true feelings for her, he was falling for her in this little span of time they got to know each other and therefore, he was completely unlike that other guy.
After a couple seconds with his mind racing like crazy, he decided what he should do and took action. With a deep, nervous sigh, he followed her to the bathroom, taking away both his leather jacket and t-shirt, which he carelessly threw on the floor, closing the door behind him. He stepped into the shower behind her and gently yet firmly embraced her by the waist, resting his face in between her shoulder and neck, the later which he kissed softly, exhaling slowly. ”I…” it was kind of difficult to speak and that much was clear by his tone. ”You shouldn’t apologize for making my heart smile after such a long time…” he said in a low and honest tone.

Ayita Hunt: sorry for the few months of inactivity. Life got a little hectic on my end and ended up having to have ankle surgery which has laid me up for a while. I'll try to start posting again soon.
