Summary: Blizzards and phone calls.
I'm half dozing with Colt curled around me when my cell phone rings.
"Are you guys coming out tonight?"
"No, there's a fucking blizzard and we're snowed in. We can't leave the hotel and flights aren't going out."
Laying in a dark hotel room sharing body heat with Colt doesn't bother me, but I hate the fact that its dark because the power was knocked out and sharing body heat under a blanket is the only way to stay warm. I can hear Alex muttering, obviously not realizing he's talking out loud.
"It's not that we don't want to, we can't."
I thought we had dealt with his insecurities about the relationship in relation to his part of it, but apparently some more issues have come up. He says that he trusts us, but sometimes it feels like he doesn't really. More muttering and I hear something about the steel domain.
"What about the domain?"
Alex doesn't answer, and the light starts to dawn, metaphorically. Oh for… just because Colt and I started our relationship during training doesn't mean that we love him less because he came into the relationship later. I wonder if someone has been putting shit into his head. Some days he appears to believe us when we tell him that we love him, and other days his body language tells me that he doesn't believe me or Colt. The days he doesn't believe us seem to be more after he's been around the others in Gen Next for a period of time, which leads me to wonder if one of them are putting ideas in his head about the relationship.
Colt echoes my question, apparently I was louder than I thought and woke him up.
"I think I found out where Alex's insecurity came from."
He didn't believe it either when I told him. Alex hung up, and I silently vowed to get this sorted out when we were able to talk to him in person.
Of all the times for us to get snowed in. Hopefully the others won't use this time to put more doubts into his head. Most likely they will, and we will have more shit to sort through when it finally stops snowing and we can get out of the hotel and actually fly out of here.
