Elemental: Ridiculous by deslea Elemental: Ridiculous by deslea
Another illustration from the fic Elemental. After his deception is revealed, Tom offers to marry Bella to placate her. She tells him not to be so bloody ridiculous. I like the playful vibe to this one - he's almost exaggerating his smarminess for effect, and she knows that he knows that she knows that he's trying to just charm his way out of trouble. He sort of reminds me here - I'm showing my age - of Santa Barbara's Mason Capwell, or Dynasty's Adam Carrington during the Dana Waring era.

Excerpt:

She paced towards him. "Because you're you, and you wouldn't be you without dirty tricks and mind games."

He rose. "Doesn't make it any less of a love story." He took her hands in his. "Why would you want to be something as insignificant as my wife? When you can be my moon and my stars? When you can be my world?"

"Oh, please. You're a manipulative bastard," she said scathingly.

"And you love me," he murmured as he leaned in to kiss her lips.

"Bastard," she hissed, but her lips were already crumbling beneath his.

"I'll marry you if you want," he said, tugging her close. "I have enough money to pay back the estate ten times over."

"Don't be bloody ridiculous," she chided, and it was settled as simply as that.

Thank you! I do love this moment. To me, it sums up everything that makes Tom and Bella what they are - he's his objectionable self and he doesn't have to change it with her, and she knows exactly what he is and loves him anyway.

There's definitely nothing to add to this perfect sentence!
