Vincent was silent until she had stopped talking, as he was thinking over the information as it came along. Then he sees that Garnet… his little sister, suddenly seemed close to tears. Honestly, he was bad with people in general, but crying girls made him sort of panic. He looked like a mean guy to many, so he had been in cases where girls had just started crying for other reasons, but people passing had come in and thought he had been mean to them. He had almost gotten taken by the police once as well because of it.
"I know…" He starts, as he reaches over and pats her head. It seemed she had inherited their mother’s height and not his at least. "I mean… I know my mother was with your father first. Or, I didn’t know it was your father. But I knew she was together with someone for a while before my father. But they never told me there was a child involved." He tries his best to force on a smile. If there was one thing he didn’t really do, it was smiling, but for some special occations it was ok.
"Well, I guess that means I owe you a lot of years worth of big brothering, right?" He was shocked over all this of course, but even with his negative aura, he was one to find positive parts of things he knew he had to deal with, and this was a thing that was easy to turn into a positive if she wanted to as well.
A hint to a smile remains on his lips, as he started wondering about how to handle the big brother role. Should he be the overly protective one, and stalk her to dates? Or should he be the understanding one that would be there for her when she came home from the date? Or just the cool one that played games and watched movies with her? There was a lot of possibilities here!
As Vincent spoke Garnet wondered about how she could be there for him more. Although he was older and could take care of himself, Garnet needed to stay strong so he wouldn’t have to worry. She didn’t want to end up being a burden on him. Vincent probably came to this area for business. She couldn’t be there to hold him back.
Til wiped her face a bit more as she chuckled at Vincent’s offer. “You could say that.” She smiled as she pulled out a tissue to make sure her face was all dry.
It was pretty odd to her they meet up like that, like something was pushing them grow closer. She pulled her hair back a bit. “What time is it?” She didn’t know if he was busy before rushing out to meet her. “Did you want me to get you something to eat or drink?” Til sniffled as she dug in her bag to find her wallet.
A warm feeling came from Vincent, she knew she didn’t have anything to worry about with him. Though he may have seemed dark and scary to most Garnet saw pass all of it to his bright smile. “I would expect that much being my brother and all.” She thought to herself.
