She nodded slowly. “Well… sorry.” She said a tad awkwardly. What were you supposed to say to your ex who had appeared out of the blue? Eli blinked. “Missed me?” She frowned. “Oh, yes. I can see how that would have went down. ‘Oh hi honey, it’s a lovely night. By the way, if you care at all, I drink blood and live forever. Not human at all’ Yeah no.” She shrugged and halfway smiled. “You wondered why it took so long for me to agree to.. court you? Well, there it was.”
"It’s quite alright, I never blamed you for any of it" He replied, what else was he supposed to say? He was the one that went off to war, yes, he had to go…but it certainly wasn’t Eli’s fault that he died not long after she healed him. "I loved you for such a long time, what else did you expect?" He asked. Though Thomas couldn’t help but laugh a little at the way she put her explanation. "Perhaps not, but I would have accepted you anyway" Even if it had taken him a little while to get around the idea. "I just assumed that you didn’t really like me at first" He admitted.
Eli pursed her lips. She hadn’t thought about that, actually. She knew at the time she didn’t want him to die, hence why she gave him her blood. “Well. That’s delightful.” She sighed and took a small step back, watching him warily. “You aren’t here for any form of revenge, are you? I would like to know if I should start running now, or not.”
He didn’t expect that comment from her, but then again what could have Thomas expected after so long apart? She would have moved on already and forgotten him surely. “I didn’t feel a thing” He shrugged. He had been so drugged up that he didn’t remember much of it. Thomas shook his head and tried to give her a reassuring smile. “I simply missed you…and I wanted to know why you didn’t tell me who you really are”
Eli held up a finger to silence him. “Hold up. Still processing.” She paused, looking him over with narrowed eyes. “I specifically remember healing you.”
Thomas waited a moment before speaking again, after all he had just shown up here. “You did…but did you think about how grave my injuries really were?” He asked her. “I died the next day” Even after seeing the war he still wasn’t used to talking so casually about death.
“I’m not entirely sure that I have the right town here” This place seemed dead, more so than Thomas was himself.
