The more she talks around the issue, the more afraid you feel about the severity of what it could be. You try not to let it on, but you’re not good at that like she is. You hear the anxiety in your voice, rising as you speak. “I don’t care about being dragged into it; Ryland, what’s wrong?!”
Finally, she spins around to face you again. She looks almost angry as she finally confesses, “Someone is stalking me!” Her voice is a desperate cry. She hadn’t meant for it to come out that way, but all the fear she’s been hiding for weeks seems to burst out in that admission.
Normally, no matter how patient you’re trying to be, you can’t help getting angry right back at someone who raises their voice at you. Not right now. In this moment, you’re stunned into silence.
Ryland continues, impassioned. “I didn’t want to tell you because I didn’t want to get you involved! I don’t want you to be put in danger because of me!”
She’s all but begging for you to stay out of it, and even in your state of shock and fear for her safety you can tell that, but there’s absolutely no way you can abide by that.
Ryland can’t help teasing you. “Who were you thinking about?”
Your face is on fire as you look away. You were trying to focus on Taylor – really, you were. But no matter how many times you reminded yourself of your girlfriend, thoughts of a certain other singer were persistent. A certain other singer who is now sitting on your bed.
Ryland told you of her tendency to push people away, not letting them get too close. She has not told you the reason for this, however. Nor does she intend to. Not yet. // Waking up with you still asleep in her arms, Ryland’s mind wanders.

Alternate to 2x12. Ryland knows she made a terrible mistake, but she's willing to apologize and earn back your trust. After everything that's happened, you recognize that breaking up with Taylor was probably for the best... but can you trust Ryland again? (This is the start of my AU, which I'm titling A Thousand Years. Future fics in the AU will be set after this.)
