It’s Me Me Monday! A day to strut, promote, and celebrate your Me-ness!
Only for Christopher, it’s all about Him, Him, Him, Alas, for Peter, it’s not him. It’s still Damian.
Picking up where the boys left off on Saturday (during Rainbow Snippets) in Unwilling to Be Yours…
“You’re hurting me.” My voice came out in a childish murmur. I wasn’t sure why. Those small fingers weren’t doing that much damage.
Christopher looked down at his hand, blinking at his fingers in confusion.
“I’m sorry,” he said, dropping his arm as if it burned him. “Please tell me. It’s very important. Do the objects glow?”
“I’m not sure,” I said with complete honesty.
What I remembered was the menace each of those objects held. It was like the picture was threatening me.
“They were sharp and distinct.” I chose each word with care, considering it carefully. “I’m not sure if they glowed.”
“I see,” Christopher said. His head dropped, his bangs falling forward to cover his eyes. His shoulders slumped. “We still don’t know, if it’s him.”
The way he said ‘him’ was reverential. There was only one ‘him’ Christopher could be talking about.
“Damian,” I said. I looked from Gabrielle to Christopher. “He’s the one who painted that picture, isn’t he?”
There hadn’t been any small card, naming the painting or the artist. This was just one of many strange things about it.
