If you want to be invited into my territory again, you should probably rethink that.
Beckett: I like our story.

This moment hurts so good. Her scar is a physical reminder of how they’ve had to beat the odds. She doesn’t want him to stare at it, but not for self-conscious reasons. It’s because she wants him to be here with her now, not dwelling in the past. She presses his hand to it though, because she knows what it means to them, and it’s a part of them and their relationship. Ugh. So. Many. Feels.
It’s like a concrete way for her to show him that “she’s here,” in every way that matters to him. She’s giving him the chance to be a part of what she should have let him be a part of a year before, and she’s facing the events of that day with him. She’s accepting his declaration of love without saying anything.
"I think I’ll have it framed."
All that matters is that you’re okay now.
