[Something about the way she puts it actually makes him relax a little; 'twitchy' is both funny in its simpleness, and also completely accurate. That she genuinely isn't pushing is also reassuring, and as hard as it might be to tell the story he's more convinced it's the right choice.
He's already tried shoving everything to the back of his mind and ignoring it as much as possible, and all that's accomplished is to make the reminders--usually otherwise normal words, but sometimes extreme situations--hit harder than they might otherwise. And it's exhausting to keep hiding everything, to watch carefully how much he says or how he reacts, especially when it's someone who's around as often as Nick.
And he trusts her, so it makes sense for her to know.]
No, it's um... It's okay. I think uh... Talking's about the only thing I haven't tried, so I'm willing to give it a shot.
[He shoves his hands in his coat pocket, glancing sideways over at her and trying to offer a small grin.]
You do have to promise that like, you won't flip out on anyone. Because you'll probably be pissed.
[He knows he would be if he heard this story from her.]
