"Do you really believe that?" The pain in her big brown eye made Rex's heart constrict. He knew that pinched looked wasn't just caused by him, it was her way of expressing her desire to help him as well. She wanted to fix this, but there was nothing she could do or say that Rex hadn't thought and dismissed until he landed on the conclusion of keeping everything he felt in the dark. He hadn't meant to hurt her with his answer, but there was no way to avoid that without lying to her, too, and he just couldn't handle doing that right now. Maybe, if he was a stronger person, or if she never cornered him in the first place...He didn't allow himself to finish that thought. There was no use pointing fingers. This was his decision to make and he had made it.

Rex ran a gloved finger over the side of the mug. He imagined he could feel the warmth of the tea. It gave him little comfort. "That I can't tell Noah the truth? Yeah."

"No, I meant about you being a secret agent. What are your plans once we've figured out to disable all nanite activity?"

Rex's finger stopped fidgeting with the mug. He blinked at her in confusion. He hadn't expected her to switch topics so suddenly. Maybe she realized there was nothing left to be said about how to deal with Noah, so now she was pivoting to something she could help him with. "No," he answered. "I haven't really given much thought to it. And it's not because I don't think Providence won't ever find a permanent cure which will work for everyone. It's just I don't know what I'd do afterward. I sure I'll stick with Providence. It's not like the higher ups don't have plans for us. Why? What do you plan to do?"

"Me?" Holiday couldn't help the grin which spread over her face. The sight of it seemed to instantly brighten the entire room. "I plan to go on a long vacation." She said proudly. "Some place that has plenty of sunshine, and serves little umbrellas in the drinks.

Rex found himself smiling along with her. "If anyone needs a vacation it's definitely you, Hols."

"Oh, I won't be going alone," Holiday promised. "You're coming with me."

"I am?"

"Of course. I'll need someone to run and refill my drinks!"

Rex laughed, grateful for the light tone of their new conversation. Holiday understood he had enough weighing down on him that they didn't need to run circles around the issue. She seemed pleased enough to know that he knew he could come to her whenever he needed someone to turn to. Funnily enough, he felt lighter after their little talk. Plus, he couldn't deny that he liked having someone who knew what was going on with him.

Maybe one day that person could be…not Holiday, he thought dubiously, still unable to add his blond friend's name to that idea.
Little Talks Six (Generator Rex, Noex, Holix)

I think I got one more chapter for this story with a one-shot sequel in the works.


"Would you like some tea? I feel like having tea," Holiday said getting up from her chair. Moving towards the kitchenette area she rinsed out the electric kettle before filling it and plugging it in. Leaning against the counter as waited for the water to boil she studied Rex. "While we wait for tea we can discuss your options."

"Options?" As far as Rex saw it he didn't have any.

"Yes. What are your options?"

"Um, let's see. I don't say anything and I'm safe, but miserable. I say something and he is so repulsed by me that he never wants to see me again."

"Or things work out for you," Holiday supplied.

Rex sniffed. "Even if by some miracle he felt the same way, it's not as if we could do anything about it. You said so yourself. White wouldn't approve. And yes, we could try to keep things on the down low, but he will find out somehow, and my restricted time with Noah will become nonexistent."

"So, you're going to give up before you even start?" The clever doctor asked pulling down two coffee mugs. "That doesn't sound like you."

"Yeah well, maybe it's the new me." Rex grumbled.

"Uh-huh," Holiday hummed not buying it. The electric kettle went off and Holiday deftly prepared their drinks.

Though he hadn't said he wanted any tea she handed him a cup anyway. He was grateful for it. It smelled nice, and it was good to have something to do, other than test the validity of the chair legs as he bemoaned his future.

"Which do you think is the most likely outcome? And don't go negative right away, unless you absolutely think that is how Noah would react," she hastily added when Rex opened his mouth to reply.

Rex lifted the mug to his lips and took a drink, enjoying the sweet robust flavors of the tea as he mulled over the question. How was Noah most likely to act when Rex told him about his feelings? Of all the questions Holiday had posed this was the most difficult one for him to answer. "Truth is I can see him both accepting and rejecting me."

"Go on," Holiday prodded.

Rex squirmed in his chair and tightened his hold on the mug, staring into it at the tiny leaves that had escaped the bag. "Like he'll be so sweet about it, you know? Say that he understands, but then he'll say 'sorry buddy, I just don't swing that way.' And he'll act like it doesn't bother him, and maybe it won't. But he won't ever be able to look at me the same way again. He'll start doubting me. Wondering every time we hang out if I'm having gay thoughts about him. Or that I'll be so overcome with lust that I will jump him in his sleep. And I just couldn't stand that. Just because I like him doesn't mean I'm so social deviant or something. I mean, I am, but that's not why." Rex clarified, suddenly feeling drained and hopeless.

Rex jumped at Rebecca's gentle touch as she placed her hand on his knee. "Rex-"

"I really care about him, Hols. Enough to never tell him the truth."

Holiday retracted her hand, making Rex follow the movement of her hand until he was looking into her eyes again.

"Is that really what you think he'd want? After everything that's happened between you boys, you really think lying to him is the best option?"

Rex shrugged. "It's my only option. Who knows maybe I'll get over him. In time."

"In the meantime you're willing to taint your time together by denying a part of yourself."

Rex tried to grin, but failed. "I'm a secret agent. It comes with the job."
Little Talks Five (Generator Rex, Noex, Holix)
Part Five of Little Talks!

For: Everyone who has stuck with my snail's pace when it comes to updating this story. You are my heroes. Enjoy!

A/N: I swear this is going to have a happy ending...or at least a hopefully one. Just stick with it!

I don't mean to sound reactionary, but I do want to be prepared in case the rumors end up being true. IF deviant art closes I want you all to know about the other ways to view my works. Even if dA doesn't close, you can still check out those other places.

Oh man, the question mark was supposed to be an exclamation point. I don't know what happened. I'll blame auto correct since I can. Lol.
