[He clenched his jaw, waiting for her to speak]
[He blinked slightly and straightened, allowing her to walk slightly from the room, before he spoke, turning slightly towards her and putting his hand on her shoulder, spinning her into a rather tight, unforseen hug] ……………….I’m sorry you have to call me your brother… Giuseppe didn’t deserve to call you his daughter, even though he didn’t. You should know that.
[Amelia gasped and squeezed her eyes shut, her whole body froze in fear. She wasn’t sure what his reaction would be, but she didn’t expect it to be a hug, blinking her eyes open she swallowed harshly as he mentioned Giuseppe and quickly stepped away from Damon.] Don’t apologize for him, I don’t want anyone who doesn’t want me. [She spoke in a small, emotionless whisper. Amelia shrugged and avoided eye contact, unsure what he was thinking, or what he wanted.]
Look, if you want me to leave… [She looked outside and raised an eyebrow] Well you’ll have to put up with me till this storm passes. [She shrugged] But I will, I know it’s quite a bombshell to drop so, whatever you want, it’s okay.
