Hrm. What was THE reason, then? Demons in the bathroom?

Is that, er, a horror-fied Mr Booth? Though the Horn shape might be off.

... is it Silenus of all people?

Give a bit of a start and turn around. Clamp down on any panicked reactions, but take a step to the side - as if you're freeing up space for them to use the central sink, but really just to draw back from them.

Odd how well that matched with your dream. Maybe you should find out what the costume is for.

No, wait. Let's not end this the same way as last time.

Go back and apologize for the beating, ask what the costume is all about.
Maybe we should also talk to Nico about boundaries and professionalism, at least over the phone later if not now.

Wait, weren't you in the bathroom a moment ago? Did you chase the guy all the way to the cubicles?

>Maybe you should find out what the costume is for.

I’m too worked up to even ask. I don’t care either. He should’ve known better than to walk around with that thing on. I don’t hear him apologizing.

>Did we wander into the men’s bathroom, or […]
>Did you chase the guy all the way to the cubicles?
It’s unisex. I think. I assume. I wasn’t gonna be cramped in a bathroom with a monster so I shoved him with my backpack. He fell backwards out the door and I may have pushed a little too hard and fell--

Why the fuck does that even matter?! You probably can’t save face for half the weird shit you do.

>I think Nico can take his offer and consider it rejected.
Yeah... maybe. No, a definite yes. I don't want to think about anything now. I'm heading out and taking the bus.

Seb: Aaaugh! Sorry I’m late, Marley. There was so much wrong with this one customer’s car. Boss needed me to finish it before she picks it up tomorrow morning. Form says she ran out of gas but refilled it in the coolant reservoir.

Seb: It goes to show filling your tank isn’t part of the road test for rich assholes like her.

Seb: Anyway, I don’t want to think about work anymore. How was your day, love? Did you finally find your spark?

Listened to some music and considered songwriting only to suddenly fall asleep, went to my former job…
Ugh. And my old boss got a kiss out of me somehow. Which got me so distraught I thought a demon showed up in the bathroom I was in. Aaand it was a dude. In a costume.
So a rollercoaster that says I might need some serious help. I’m r just…I’m so glad I have you.
No. 1058136 ID: a758c7

Unfortunately not. Talk about your day and how everything went exceeeeeeept maybe not the kiss part, at least not right now. Do tell him how much you love him and are thankful for him though :3 maybe a hug and a proper smooch
No. 1058145 ID: dee951

Don't tell him about the kiss..

Well maybe at the end, after you stress how utterly discombobulated you are and you aren't acting like yourself and everything seems a bit wonky.

Then do the kiss as an, "I have a confession that I have to get off my chest." and characterize it like... you're worried about your mental health, things have been really weird lately, and the things you noticed after the fact that you WEREN'T thinking, and how you immediately reacted once you got a moment of sanity.

Marlene: What do you think?

Seb: Aw, I meant nothin’ bad by it. I’m sure you always do your best to find an idea to write. I know you. You’ll be on a roll once you start jotting down words.

Seb: This aint the first time you’ve been down in the dumps. I’ve seen you like this before. It’ll pass! Trust me.

Marlene: Six months without writing though?

Seb: Didn’t you say that you wanted to rest your brain a while?

Marlene: I suppose. I hope the feeling isn’t irreversible.

Marlene: Ya know, I wandered around today and I was just thinking the whole way through. But mainly thinking about myself and what I’m exactly doing here.

Marlene: I visited my old band. They’re getting along so normally--I don’t know how they can stay pumped to make music. I promised I could help write a few songs for a show. However, I slept in the middle of practice as I tried to write. Don’t know why.

He gasps in excitement. Good news doesn’t come around often for me.

Seb: Oh neat! That’s really good to hear! Did you accept? It could keep you productive in the meantime. I know you had a hard time working there but perhaps it’ll be different. Make some demands! They giving you a raise, I hope?

He plants a kiss to my lips. He smells of grease and a cold garage.

Marlene: Yeah... I guess it was.

Marlene: ...

Marlene: Sebastian. Today has felt a little unusual for me; that’s what’s throwing me off. I just didn’t feel like myself since this morning. I may be turning crazy but a lot of things I’ve done today happened without thinking it through.

Seb: Maybe it’s the sleepwalking. For a while you stopped but maybe starting that again will confuse you.

Seb: Let’s not talk about how rough today was yet. Have you eaten dinner? I know it’s a bit late but we could order a pizza or Chinese.

Marlene: Sure. I’ll think of somethin’ to order. You need a shower first; you smell.

No. 1058510 ID: dee951

Plan the evening! Shower, Pizza, maybe a bit of wine. Maybe some background music, cuddling. Maybe some herbal tea.

After fortifying yourself, explain the rest of the evening. It IS important to get this stuff of your chest as soon as you can reasonably manage it, he'll understand that, but you do need to make the effort to come clean and discuss this like an adult.

Thank him for the idea to take a shower, it should give you a bit more time and a safer place to let your thoughts percolate some more. He has a point; it's possible that the sleepwalking starting up again messed with your impulse control. Definitely gonna have to communicate what happened with him ASAP, but it's going to be a lot better when you have some food and other good things on the horizon to stabilize with.

What, you think we’re loaded with money here? Is herbal tea expensive? Clearly I don’t drink it to know. We just have standard poor stuff like soda and beer. I think I’ll have to go out for milk again.

Marlene: A pizza would sound nice. You should order from Tee-Gees, then. They’re not-shit and close enough while I gussy you up.

Seb: I thought you said you would order while I shower.

Marlene: well, I could multitask.

Seb: You think you’ll be done in time to answer the door?

Marlene: Do you think we’ll take 30 minutes?
In hindsight showering together is always a terrible idea when you have to share one showerhead. But I can’t recall taking a bath earlier so it gives me an excuse to nudge myself in. I make myself useful to scrub Seb’s face and erase the dark, oily marks.

Seb: Ow.

Marlene: Hold up, did you finally shave that ridiculous thing off?

Seb: What--the beard? Probably flat against my chin--! Ow!

Marlene: Wait, there it is.

Seb: Send some water over here, my eyelids hurt from trying to keep the soap from burning. It’s getting cold, too.

Marlene: Whiner.

Phone: Uh... that’ll be $21.50 at the door, mam?

Marlene: 30 minutes, yeah, I got it. Thanks.

After drying off he seems to smell fine. I’m sure I’m noseblind at this point since he works at the auto shop every day. We eat our pizza, watch TV, do nothing productive. I think the full stomach helps with wanting to retreat to bed and sleep--so we head on over nearing eleven o’clock.

I read a bit before the melatonin sinks in. Seb scrolls his phone but as soon as one of us decides to sleep the other will follow--it's almost like a standoff. But whatever’s looming on my mind I guess I couldn’t help but get Seb’s attention.

Marlene: Hey...

Seb: Yeah?

His eyes remain on the phone as his finger flicks across the screen.

Marlene: Ah, it's nothin’. I just figured it out.

Seb: Alrightie then~

Seb: That a journal on your desk?

Marlene: Oh yeah... I just keep it in my night drawer in case something good comes up. That way I can pounce on it when inspiration strikes.

Seb: What if you sleepwalk away from bed and wake up too far? Heh heh.

Marlene: Ah, shut up.

He yawns, sets his phone down on the charger.

Seb: Hrrrgh--I think that’s about it for tonight for me, Marley. I have no energy. At. All. I should get to sleep for tomorrow.

Seb: Maybe it’ll get better tomorrow for you too!

Marlene: Yeah. Maybe.

He is amazing. And I’m not. Without him I wouldn’t be able to support myself for very long. I would have to live with my parents in another town and my future is uncertain from there. So yeah, revealing that to him requires something to fall back onto. Even if it is the right thing to do.

Once I make a career and get my life going... I ought to mention it then. He deserves to know. That I’m certain. This isn’t really something I ought think about while trying to sleep right now.

Well there you have it, folks: a day of nothing productive in the life of Marlene Collins. I mean... the weird stuff is not usually part of it. I have everything to live comfortably but it’s not enough for me. The world wouldn’t be different if I had never existed.

At least I have something to occupy my time with--a few scripts to breeze through and pick out any good ones, as well as write a song. Shouldn’t be hard. Maybe four lines to repeat are all a song needs. I could read some scripts at Brook’s Clove, chat with Emmylou and see how she’s doing.

Would I be able to show my face at the studio again? No one knows what happened in Nico’s office--so really it would be explaining the scare I had afterwards. I ought to just avoid Nico entirely.

What am I saying? Why would I return unless I get $100 from Dolly?
