Re: i'm born again [past]

While Celi panicked over Dove's tears, Dove had a similar reaction. What's wrong with me? The mirror was perfectly lovely. It wasn't the most luxurious present Dove had received, but he loved it all the same. Perhaps more, even. Because the mirror was so thoughtful while the gifts Dove could recall ...

Re: Love and loss share the same unmade bed [past]

Best friend. The moniker outshone Dove's pathetic attempt so much that he felt a flood of shame. He didn't want to look at Celi. He didn't want to have to own up to the fact he'd been an overly defensive idiot who couldn't handle something as simple as saying best friend. Instead he'd had to disgui...

Re: Five feet apart [past]

The please was too much. Dove took a breath and it sunk in for the first time what he was about to do. It was easy enough to joke about it. Easier still to say something vulgar to distract from what it all meant . But as Dove stared out at the crowd and every beautiful face who stared back, he had t...

Re: i'm born again [past]

Dove pulled his hand back from the flowers. A present? He'd already received one present and that had been a complete shock. Dove looked at the wrapped gift on the table like it might come alive and attack him. He knew he couldn't continue to lifelessly stare at everything for the rest of the day, s...

Re: Love and loss share the same unmade bed [past]

While Celi remained silent and nursed his drink, Dove's gut twisted. Perhaps he shouldn't have said anything at all. Had he let Magnolia's comment pass, Celi might not have even noticed. There was no backing down now, Dove thought. "No, we're not. We're friends. Colleagues." Why did Dove need to add...

Re: Five feet apart [past]

Celi had a point. Dove was being, perhaps, a little too critical of the girls when they were none of his business. Who or what Celi decided to stick his dick in was not his business in general, so there was no reason for him to be so invested all of a sudden. Well, there was a reason. It just wasn't...

Re: i'm born again [past]

For a long time, Dove didn't respond. He stared at the bouquet with its vibrant golden hues as if it might provide the answers to the universe. Still stunned and silent, Dove took a seat at the dining room table. He moved his eyes away from the bouquet long enough to take in all the other decoration...

Re: Love and loss share the same unmade bed [past]

"Don't sully my love of gin with your paraphilic lust for trees," Dove said. Their argument came to a screeching halt at Magnolia's commentary. Dove slowly turned his head to stare at Magnolia in some strange mixture of horror and embarrassment. Cute? How were they cute? Cute was a word used to desc...

Re: Five feet apart [past]

Dove hadn't considered what pressing himself to Celi's side might do to him until it was too late. Celi's body heat radiated against him. His smell filled Dove's nostrils. If Dove clenched his hand against Celi's shoulder, he could feel the obvious muscle there. All in all, the mixture was too much ...

Re: i'm born again [past]

Dove twirled his locket from his hand to watch the heart turn again and again and again. The pale gold glinted beautifully in the sun and sometimes, when the sun hit the locket just right, the opal in its center glowed like a blue moon. He'd gasped when Artemis had presented the gift to him. Artemis...
