I hope I get to everyone’s stuff before I leave in a few days on vacation.
This week is continuing the untitled short from the last two weeks. It’s from the Kept Tears universe. It’s coming up on the anniversary of the day Aaron suffered the explosive amputation of his arm (and nearly his leg). Rhys (and Corrine) are trying hard to keep his spirits up and love him through the hard times. Aaron has just told Rhys Corrine wants them all to go to Kennywood Park (a historic amusement park in Pittsburgh) in an effort to keep Aaron distracted from the mental pain of that upcoming anniversary. He and Rhys are debating whether or not they should go in this snippet.
“Honestly, I want to be kept busy. It helps but if I’m just not up to it when the day comes, I just hope everyone understands if I break,” Aaron whispered.
Rhys pulled him closer. “You can break on me, know that. I will ride it out with you.”
Aaron closed his eyes, shivering a bit. “You don’t know what that means.”
