Maze Of Moments

Chapter Text

"There's someone else." He states as they get dressed facing away from each other, always facing way from each other. 

"Is there?" Her voice is cold, emotionless and it pains him. He had hoped that over the years she would get over it, she would go back to her old self. But that wasn't the case. 

"Yes, she quite lovely. A cellist from Portland, her name is Audrey." A small smile tags at his lips, barely there, but it's gone before she can see it. 

"That means nothing to me." She tries to make a quick escape but he grabs her wrist. 

"It means to me." He growls, the air around them shifting to something else. "We can't do this anymore, Mel." It scares him how detached she can be from her feelings, a mere war machine. Everything Shield wants on a good soldier. 

"I never wanted a starring role in your life, Phil." She's out of the room before he has times to say something, the words sinking in.


I wait for you to open up, to give yourself to me...
But nothing's ever gonna give, I'll never set you free...
Yeah I'll never set you free...
