Got an email this evening from a mutual friend of C and his sister. His sis isn't doing that well dealing with the loss; neither am I to be honest.  C was a very private person, with everyone it seems, so I spent the last hour trying to decide how much to say and what I shouldn't.  I did say that he was a man I loved dearly, that we had been dating off and on the the last several years, and that he was someone I saw a future with.  I included the last selfie he sent me (G-rated) and the pic of the flowers I took after I put them on his grave, along with the pic he sent me when we first started dating - a time that seems like it was yesterday, even though it was so many years ago.

Got a second email from her. Both of them have made it easier to think of the good memories that I will always cherish.  He had told her he was dating someone in a "somewhat long-distance" relationship, so that silenced the voice of depression that had started whispering in the back of my mind that they didn't call because regardless of what he had said it was all a lie and I had read more into it that was there -- I knew that voice was wrong but...    the self-doubt of depression can be insidious.

 

She was happy to know he was dating someone who loved him enough to be patient and try to help him through the fear of commitment that she knew he had; the fear of being hurt again.

      i count every hour 
      every minute
      every second
      to see your face
      to touch your hand
      to feel your skin
      to see your delighted eyes
      to see your smile:)
      for just a second...
      i just want to die after these 
      i want to take my last breath from your smell
      iwant to take my last look of your face
      i want to have my last touch of your skin
      i want to kiss your hand while dying,having your hand in my fist
      just
      let me die slowly...
      concentrated in your eyes....
      yes, i want this.

      Better late than never might be the motto hanging over the entrance ...  Oh well ... As the story continues to progress, maybe there'll be things you'd like to chat about, complain, moan. Whatever. 
       
      First though, I've an announcement about Tony and Geoff, and the next few months. As a serial which is written as it's being posted, T&G needs discipline as well as enjoyment on my part. Over the past couple of episodes, that discipline has felt more like a constraint, something that holds me back from writing other things. So the next chapter, 17, about the meal, will be the last for a short while. It will finish Part 1 of Soul Music. I love the characters and I have plenty left to do with them, but I need a break. Both to do other things, and to recharge that part of my creative battery. I expect Geoff to be having that conversation with his mother sometime in July, probably as the opening chapter of Part 2. Sorry to keep you hanging on that one, but the meal seemed the only point at which I could call a temporary halt. @Parker Owens as my editor, and the person with the most invested in the story after me, has agreed with my decision. 
       
      So, there it is. It will allow me to write more for GA - about Eric, amongst others, and another longish entry for the next anthology. In the meantime, there is one more chapter to write (and it may well turn out to be long one  ). I hope you've enjoyed it so far and that you'll rejoin me when I announce the start of Part 2 in this thread.

      I see that this wonderful story hasn't received a thread yet. Let the discussion begin.
       
      We keep talking about the fact that Declan is eventually going to figure out what Bailey's been doing, but its interesting to note that he's had a few opportunities to ask about it now, and he's chosen not to. I think that Declan already knows what's going on, and he doesn't want to make it more real by talking about it. It's not in his normal character, but I think we've seen that when Bailey's involved that Declan doesn't act in ways he normally acts.
