My character kind of sees it as his job to help people, so there’s that.
And if my character had his memories maybe he’d know that Alexis loves him, but all that’s visible is a guy who wants to use him and kick him while he’s down.
Since it sounds like Alexis isn’t going to change that first impression anytime soon, I imagine my character is just going to decide there is no relationship there.
Heck, my character doesn’t even necessarily blame Alexis for that.
Probably say something like “Look, I get it. You don’t love me. That’s fine. I heard what I was like, I wouldn’t have loved me either. You don’t owe me love because of biological happenstance. So let’s save everyone time by not pretending to have a relationship that is not there.”
