What's Wrong || Benvery

Avery: shrugged, "They were my last resort. It was only supposed to be temporary, like all the other houses... All the other families that were supposed to love me." Biting her lip, Avery felt her throat closing up. She shook her head, willing for the thoughts to go away. A small smile rested on Avery's face when Benji kissed her forehead, "Do you want anything? Need anything before you go into rehearsal?"
Benji: shook his head. "All those other people were assholes then if they couldn't see what an amazing daughter you are. And you've found your family now. They love and care about you which is a lot more than I can say about my family and they're biological. You're amazing, Avery. You just need to start admitting that to yourself. And I know I don't have a lot of room to talk about that, but i'm working on it. We could work on it together." He smiled at her before shaking his head. "Nah, i'm good. I just ate before coming over here and I have my water in my car."

Avery: shrugged, "I guess." She avoided Benji's gaze, per usual. Looking people dead in the eye wasn't anything she ever did. "I don't think Mrs. Carol knew, so that's why she never told me. I had been in their care for... maybe seven years? I don't actually remember the dates well." Avery sighed, "But, that's beside the point. How are you today, Benji?"
Benji: sighed a little. "Avery... Do you realize how much she probably wanted a daughter? She has boys and if the Hudson boys are anything like how Hunter and I were, they were a handful. I'm sure she was more than thrilled when you came into her life. Or else she wouldn't have chosen to adopt you. She loves you, Avery. You're her family just as much as the boys are." Ben told her, placing a kiss on her forehead with a smile. "i'm doing good though. I have rehearsal in a few hours."

Avery: wiped her eyes, even though no tears fell, "It'll be alright. I'll be fine. I don't think anyone really knew, and I mean... even if they did, I know why they kept it." She gave a weak smile, leaning into his embrace, "I'm not a part of their family, so I can see why Mrs. Carol might have kept it from me."
Ben: shook his head a little listening to her. "Avery, you are a part of their family. The Hudson's adopted you and you're in their family. They love and care about you. I'm sure if Mrs. Hudson knew, she'd have told you." Ben said, pulling back a little to look at her. "I don't think that she'd have kept it from you."

Avery: replied, voice soft and broken, "We were looking at obituaries in creative writing. We were going to write an obituary. And, my teacher pulled up my dad's... And I knew it as soon as I saw his face. It wasn't a mug shot. It was him smiling." She bit her lip, "And-- and then I saw the last name. God, I hadn't used my real last name in so long. After seeing it and reading the name, I just... walked out."
Ben: kept his hold on her, listening at she talked. "I'm so sorry." He replied back to her, placing a kiss on the top. "No one should find out about things like that in that way. Someone should have told you before." Benji told her, rubbing her back gently. "I'm so sorry, Avery."

What's Wrong || Benvery

Avery: wasn't crying anymore. She was all cried out. Wiping away her tears, Avery slipped into her pink pajama pants and a tank top. Everything was so tiring. The fact that she knew this could have been prevented if she had never left made it harder. Hearing someone knock on the door, Avery bit her lip and made way. "Hi..." She whispered, once she opened the door.
Ben: looked up as soon as the door open. The frown stayed on his face seeing the heartbroken girl. "Sweetheart..." He whispered, pulling her into a hug. "What happened?" He asked softly, making his way inside and over to the couch.

Ben: put down his drawing pad. He checked the time before patting his dog on the head. "I'll be back later, Elvis. You be a good boy." he said before heading out. Ben was wearing shorts and a simple t-shirt since he'd be changing into his costume during rehearsal anyway. He walked up to Avery's door and knocked, prepaid to hug her immediately.

Everything. You in general.

jessest-broadway:

Well, would you have said yes if someone had asked you that question about me?

I dunno. I wasn’t asked that question. Maybe.
