The words completely froze the Sniper in place, every movement, breath and thought coming to a screeching halt. He was that way for a few agonising seconds, still as the grave as his brain struggled to cope with the phrase, to handle and process it.
A noise sounded from somewhere far off, a shrill bang probably from a distant base, and it’s all that was needed to snap him out of it. He looked up to the Spy with dry but stricken eyes, chest and throat clearly tightening in waves as he tried to get something out. Anything, even a gasp would have done.
Instead the words shot forth like a bullet, quick and sharp. “I love you too.”
“I love you.” He repeats it back, followed by a pause. In seconds he dissolves into a shaking mess, repeating the phrase over and over as best as he could as he clung to the Frenchman yet again, fingers curling into the fabric of the fine suit as he buried his face into the suited chest.
The room had fallen to almost completely uneasy silence; the only noise that could be heard was the hushed flow of the spy’s own breathing. When those three words had slipped out an instant feeling of remorse had washed over him, almost like even saying “i love you” was like he had committed a great crime against the world. Maybe it was to early for it to be said or maybe Claude didn’t actually feel the same way about him. Either way Esme was thinking that he should have never said them.
The silence was starting to get to him almost like it would be like that for eternity but it was broken in only a matter of time by the quick words. It had startled him how fast those words has came out but he could understand them, he had gotten a response. A small smile played it way on to his lips as he looked back to the other. That was the only thing he wanted back, not any kind of embrace or anything just those three words were satisfying enough.
He muttered lightly, “and I always will” as he held the other close to him. Wrapping one hand around the Australian and lightly continued to run his one hand through the others hair. “thank you”
