Emil: "I wanna help you too, since you're been so kind to me."
"Maybe a hug would help...?"
"Ah, no never mind, sorry!"
Richter looks at Emil with some new expression in his eyes.
"Maybe that would..."
Richter: "I don't mind."
Emil: "I-I-If you're sure..?"
Richter opens his arms and waits.
Emil hesitates but slowly takes his arms over Richters torso. "I-Is this ok?"
Richter: "You don't have to ask things like this, you know."
Richter falls silent and hugs Emil back a little awkwardly. He is silent and has closed his eyes, too.
Emil feels the weight of Richter's chest, with steady breaths. "I-I know but I'm not used to this..."
Emil smiles in Richters shoulder. "I didn't expect you to say yes."
"I didn't expect myself to do that, as well."
