Adding more conversation to help the flow
I started with this:
Marietta’s jaw dropped and refused to close What he said was true. She had turned her back on Lucifer.Silent tears streamed down her face as she stared at Tool.
And came to this:
Marietta’s jaw dropped and refused to close. What he said was true. She had turned her back on Lucifer. “I didn’t meant to. It was just nice having someone who didn’t treat me like an unwanted nuisance.”. Silent tears streamed down her face as she stared at Tool.
“A nuisance? Is that what you think he was doing? You’re kidding me right? He cared more about you than he did about anyone.”
Tool cut her off, “No, there’s no buts about it, Yes he had his walls. Yes he didn’t show his feeling well, but he let you in despite everything that has happened to him to prove otherwise.”
“What do you mean what’s happened? Nothing before did.”
“Are you that dumb? Do you not get what having a mother like his does to someone? It makes it hard to trust people. And you’ve just backed that up.”
“I didn’t mean to do that though.”
“It doesn’t matter if you want to help him, then leave him alone.” Tool stared her down, never letting his anger lighten.
“Fine” In silence she stood up and walked out of the office. Tool was there and she doubted Lucifer would want her to be there when he came out.
