It’s Me Me Monday! Another day to strut, promote, and celebrate one’s me-ness! Only Christopher isn’t feeling like celebrating. Not while he shares/feeds on Damian’s memories, learning more of his true relationship with Gabrielle in the next part of ‘Waiting for Rebirth’.
“Do you even need me?” The ache rose up from Damian’s stomach to throb in his chest. I ached right along with him. “Or am I just some helpless little arachnocrat you saved from being a marriage feast?”
“Damian,” Gabrielle began, only to shut her mouth. She just stared at him, her eyes becoming more stricken.
“Don’t bother answering.” He looked away from her, distracting his hands with another box filled with junk which someone had thrown away. Something which help someone, even if Damian himself would never understand how. “I was a fool to think you somehow had all the answers.”
