So today the library was selling off old books for like 50 cents apiece. And I picked up this one “Split screen” (Meaning there’s one book and then you flip the book over and there’s another on the other side) called “Attack of the Soul-sucking brain zombies” and “Bride of the Soul-sucking brain zombies.” Sounds stupid, I know. So I opened “Bride” for a good laugh.
“Min and her friends are turning into ZOMBIES! Zombie actors, that is- they’ve signed up to be extras in a horror film shooting in their town.”
“But the real drama takes place behind the scenes, where Min finally meets a girl who’s perfect for her.”
“When sexy Kevin Land tries to get back together with Russel, it’s suddenly very hard to say no- even though his long distance boyfriend is coming to visit in just a few days.”
“Stop fighting this,” e whispered, gently stroking a finger down the side of tumblr’s cheek. He flinched, but didn’t recoil as vehemently as e had expected, so he continued, rubbing soothing patterns onto the familiar blue skin.
“Don’t you see? We’re meant to be together.”
And maybe tumblr did see, deep down. But that didn’t stop him from glaring because it hurt, it always hurt with e and the resentment flared again at the reminder that somehow, somehow he couldn’t avoid this pain.
“Tell me we don’t fit together,” e whispered against his lips, still stroking those burning, glowing patterns into his skin. “Tell me I don’t complete you.”
