His breath hitched a little, Ahsoka wondered if he was in pain, wondered if it was her causing him pain but the moment he looked her in the eyes she knew. They needed each other. As friends, As lovers, neither mattered anymore as long as they had each other.
“I’ve got your back little’un” Rex smiled.
“And I’ve got yours Captain.” She allowed her self a brief smile before wrapping her arms around his neck and feeling his arms close gently around her in an embrace. Her smile widened, ‘yes’ she thought ‘either way is fine as long as i can protect him.’
