Valentines Day is getting closer and our Journey into the romantic mind of my characters is continuing, this time with a dark and twisted (and pretty much the most heart breaking thing I have ever written) love story of
Lex and Cohen
I hope you enjoy this look into their hearts – both taken from deep within the pages of Episode 2 (so early in the story). Grab a flashlight and delve in!
My darling Cohen. Everything is too silent. Too dark. Too lonely. And while, in a way, it is something that I am sure I should be used to by now – I just haven’t been able to adjust in this way. Especially not today. On this dumb holiday full of candy and flowers and kisses that still haunt my memory. Kisses I still want. At least, I think it’s valentines. It’s hard to know sometimes, as carefully as we try to track the days, everything is still just one long stretch of night. But I am pretty sure it is, even if I was just to judge by the ache in my heart. And knowing that you are there, feet away from me, wanting me, but too far to reach, someone makes it worse. In moments I will stand before you, glass and air keeping me from you, and press my hand against the pane, watching your wide grin, and even through the hurt, my heart will swell.
I guess that means I love you.
What is that asinine phrase everyone uses? Will you be my valentine? I don’t even have to ask, I know you will be.
Well, now that Lex has ripped our hearts out and stomped on them…. it’s time for our artists to take the stage. I wonder what he will paint for us.
I found paint today, well, rather I made paint today. Even though its all just muted tones of remembrances of color, it’s still paint. Paint to create a beautiful picture for you. Of you.
I doubt I can get it done in time to create a gift for you today, for valentines – so I’ll aim for your birthday. But either way I will paint and draw my heart and soul onto the cavas – create beauty that I am sure you feel like you have lost. But you haven’t lost it, just as you haven’t lost me.
For you are the keeper of my heart, the soul that connects with mine – and that love cannot fade.
So, Happy valentines day, my darling girl. And keep faith, for even though the world is dark – we have created light between windows and air.
