    Summary

    One second is all it takes to pull a trigger, everybody knew that. And one second's pulled trigger can lead to a shitstorm unlike anything he wanted. It felt like all he could do was pull that trigger...but he didn't. Nicki forced himself to breathe, forced himself to think, because he knew without any fuckin' doubt, that if he pulled that trigger at all, that he should put the barrel in his own mouth rather than point it some other direction, because that's what it would be in the end. His death, and a whole ton of bystanders.

    So he doesn't pull the trigger, with shaking hands, he forces his panic down, refuses to let the Angel and the Devil who sure as shit looked to be one and the same who were hissing and shouting at him to use that gun as a weapon instead of a prop, and manages a different course of action. It's tenuous, the tiny thread he squeezes, wrests, and twists out of the jaws of inevitability...but it's a chance to survive, and Nicki Tortano will fuckin' take that gamble instead of layin' down and dying.

    Summary

    "What? You gonna keep on bringing me flowers? We gonna go to the prooom?"
    "Mph..." he just smiled knowingly, dipping a little lower, silently teasing, and most definitely keeping his yapper shut while she watched.
    "Ohhh...oh so it's like that, huh?" she rolled her eyes, laughing a little, but he could tell she wasn't against the idea, expecting him to just out and out lock lips with her...instead, he tucked a soft curl of hair away, the smile that had been on his face, slipping and changing, a surprising amount of peacefulness welling up within him.
