I suppose he’s not the most terrible individual ever. But still, a bit too clumsy for my liking. Ah, yes again with the notion of family in this place. I’ll have to take your word for it. I’ll bear that information in mind. Hopefully he’ll enjoy it. I see. I envy that. Well, the misfortune of your mother’s passing aside, I envy the bond you have with your father. Mine has only ever been good for a smack upside the head and a reminder of all the numerous wrong I seem to do.
I don’t think he’s clumsy, it seems to be more bad luck to me then anything else… But I know the idea seems… crazy but really this is probably the only place I have never felt accepted outside of Kaiser so… well I consider them all my family… But I’m sorry that your relationship with your father isn’t the same. I grew up not knowing it could be different and I still don’t understand it… It’s not fair and I really don’t understand parents who chose to act that way.
I see. Well, I would certainly appreciate it.
One freak accident too many for me. Especially if Nurse Azimio tries to insist that I help Aaron again with his work. Hot springs, though, that sound promising. Perhaps I could convince Jesse into checking them out with me. It sounds as though you miss your father. And have a good relationship with him. That must be nice.
Aaron’s not so bad though. I’m actually friends with him and he’s really a nice guy. I dunno maybe it’s silly but he’s like family to me. The hot springs are nice though and up here in the mountains it gets so chilly and night that it makes them really nice. If you decide to go it’s right off the shortest marked path by the center. You can’t miss it. I… I guess I do. We got a lot closer after mom passed… it took time because well… if you met my father you’d understand. He is very much a man’s man… and as his only son and being gay and… almost stereotypical so… we never had much in common. We got by and until I came here he was all I had. I know its more then some people had thought and… despite the living hell that was high school I’m grateful I had at least him.
How very kind of you. And your boyfriend if he doesn’t mind sharing.
Yes, it is rather dull around here once you find yourself settled. I suppose there’s things to do outside but I’d rather not risk a thumb unless absolutely necessary.
I doubt he would mind. His selection varies a little from my own too so it’s more to choose from.
It’s not that bad outside. What happened to Aaron was a freak accident but I go out a lot and nothing really bad has happened… W-Well once I wandered too far into the woods and… it was probably dangerous but that was my own mistake. But there are hot springs and I’ve heard there is a little pound out a ways… and if that’s too far the gardens are lovely too. I guess… I never thought I’d get settled and leave my room but… after a while it gets cramped and you start to miss little things. I miss things I never, ever thought I would… like my Dad forcing me to help him at the shop. I used to hate it but… I think now I’d gladly do it just for the chance to… spend some time with him…
A rainy day is wasted if it’s not spent curled up with a good book.
Well if you run out of things to read let me know. I have a bookshelf full of good books and my… my boyfriend has a few books as well that I know he would let you borrow.
I guess I understand wanting something to do and since coming here I have ordered more books online then I could ever need but… I suppose there isn’t much else to do.
Well thank you so much for your insight, Kurt, but out of the two of us only one has worked professionally on Broadway so I think my knowledge of how to remedy the situation is all I’ll be needing.
Maybe so but you’ve missed the point. Maybe you know what you’re doing, maybe I’ll never be on Broadway like you. But at least I know how to be decent to people and make friends. I would rather have that then fame any day.
Weren’t you? No, just reminding me of your abilities, I suppose. That’s very humble of you.
No I was being kind and helping you narrow down you’d probably be better off finding a female partner to fill the spot. I’m not saying anyone is less talented then me just that I know the other men here have more of a traditional range. But you had to be rude and assume so I’m sorry to have wasted my time trying to be kind to you to begin with.
Hmm…I’ll consider it if I can’t find a woman. This is a male-female duet, specifically. And I’ve already heard you in any case.
Well I wasn’t offering my voice, just stating a fact. Either way good luck with your search.
Anyone? Or the male equivalent thereof? Countertenor?
I’m not sure about the girls here but… out of the few male patients I know sing I am the only countertenor I think…
I’m okay… just having a rough night I suppose but I will be alright.
