“If you keep treating me like this, Pam-a-lamb, I may have to have accidents more often.”
Ivy’s vines around Harley’s body suddenly stop caressing her as Ivy looks down at Harley with narrowed eyes. She seems suddenly dangerous again, and Harl remembers, with a pang in her heart, that it isn’t always smart to tease one’s lover. “I . . . I was just kidding.”
“You better be. I never want you to hurt yourself on purpose, Harley.”
“Is that why you looked at me like that? I was only kidding!”
“I’ve known women who have. They hurt themselves to get attention, or they hurt themselves because . . . because some dirtbag had convinced them they should. I know he -- he did a lot of things to you, Harls, but -- “
“Pammy, baby,” Harley croons, drawing her into her arms, “he’s in the past. I’m not going back to him ever again! It’s you I want, you I love, and I promise you as long as I’ve got you in my life, I’m not going to ever do anything stupid like that again. I mean, I may do something stupid -- we all do stupid stuff, and I do make a lot of stupid mistakes -- but not like that.”
Pam places a gloved finger on Harley’s lips, hushing her and making her realize that she’s started to babble. “Besides, there’s way more fun things I can do to you and with you once I’m healed.” Harley kisses her, easing the last of their worries away.
