Awful Timing

Of all the times to quit the college park pain-cave in favor of the boho chateau of Bethesda, tonight was by far the worst night of all nights ( now a shimmering morning ) to come back here.

Talk about terrible timing... I missed out on a glorious chance to get sticky with you and now I'm nearly out of cigarettes.


Curse the luxuries of fine food and furniture. The comfort whore of my babylon.

'I'm just kidding, darling. Don't worry. He's a good man. You did well sweetheart. He's a good man. You'll be fine.'

Hope's paper-thin smile tried to grow as she stared at her grandmother's reflection in the mirror. The mother-of-pearl grip sparkled in her grandmother's hand, bathed by the Chapel's cheap buzzing lights.

'There's a bullet for you, just in case.'

Hope had left the gun on the table.

A week earlier, drunk off self-pity, she had taken it out of its case and walked to the kitchen, where she stuck the barrel in her mouth and proceeded to take pictures of herself to send to Ray.

In a rare instance of good fortune, her phone ran out of battery before she could indulge her sense of pithy revenge. She woke up and pried open her tear-salted eyelashes then made sure to delete an…
