The good news is I won Nano and I DID finish These Haunted Hills. Now begins the laborious process of editing this into something that’s not a ball of nonsense. The bad new is they flipped us online for the last 3 weeks of class which at least I was prepared for except for the lab final. Sigh.

“Do you want to talk? I don’t….I’m not sure what to do next. I might not be what you need tonight.” Joshua grimaced hating himself for that admission.
“You have no idea how much I need you. You, in just the short time I’ve known you, have made me feel lighter, happier than I have in years, just by being you.”
Josh gasped, his eyes pricking with moisture. “Brendan.”
Brendan squeezed Josh’s hand. “I mean that. You are a great friend. You’re funny and you’re smart. You were all the things I prize and now you’re here listening to me bawl.”
“You need a friend right now.”
