Lol, that was my reaction too. I got all "Oh my god, Leo!!! RUUUUUN!!" Just to hear that line. And then Ezio tilts his head down xD. Just go to kill some templars and everything will be good again, Ezio. xD
HAPPENED TO ME TOO. FOR A WHILE I THOUGHT 'THIS IS BECAUSE I DIDN'T GIVE YOU THAT HUG IN AC2 WASN'T IT? WASN'T IT?!?!' ;A; I wasn't paying close attention at that moment and by the time I noticed, it was too late. *AWKWARD SILENCE ENSUES* I still regret it to this day. ;.;
And to think all the hints Leo gave in the two games of his preference for companionship... damn, he took it too hard when Ezio didn't "get it".
Could be worse though, Instead of that lady in Forli who gave the "private riding lessons" after finishing that horse race it could have been Leo. Yes I'm aware of the mental image but if my drunken brain came up with it I will not let my own mind be the only one tormented
