A Smokeless Eternal Flame

I have been told to write about love. I know Liz is forcing this on me, so I appear mushy and likable to her readers, but that’s not what she’s going to get. I used to think love was the biggest con out there. Sure I knew it existed in some weird abstract sort of way, but I didn’t understand all of those absurd books about wasting away and dying for someone else. The first rule of this world is you have to take care of yourself.

I lived that rule my whole life and it served me well. My life was never complicated or unmanageable. Then love came long, cornered me in dark alley, and beat the crap of me. Now I have to deal with these damn weepy emotions and feeling like my heart has been stuffed into a blender that is set on pulse. All because of Olivia Martin, the one person I cannot forget or leave in the past. Baker says I am wrapped around her little finger, and perhaps I am. My life has never been so complicated or painful, but when she is with me, I wouldn’t trade a moment of it.

My advice, if you see love, cross to the other side of the street.
