Quite Nice

8pm

‘From Out of Nowhere’ – Faith No More

PICTURE, IF YOU WILL: A ROOM; A HEAT AND AN INTENSE LACK OF OXYGEN.  CONVERSATION NOW DEFUNCT.  ‘ALL ALONE.’  NOT QUITE.  THE YOUNG MAN IS NOT TOO TALL, HAIR A DIRTY BLOND; HE WEARS PURPLE AND BLACK (UGH!  CLICHÉ!)  THE YOUNG WOMAN IS BLIND AND CLUMSY ACCORDING TO CERTAIN DIARIES, BUT QUITE NICE (ACTUALLY!) IN REAL LIFE.  YES, WE’LL LEAVE IT AT ‘QUITE NICE’ FOR NOW; THE IMPLICATIONS OF ANY MORE ELABORATE ADMISSIONS MIGHT PROVE TO BE a) DAMAGING or b) ENLIGHTENING (AND EXCLUSIVE!).  MYSTERY!

RITCHERD J. WINTERFOOD APPROACHES 20 YEARS OF EXISTENCE.  LILITH MACMILLAN APPROACHES 17.  IT IS MAY.  SHE IS MAKING GURGLING NOISES SOMEWHERE BETWEEN HER WINDPIPE AND HER STOMACH.  HE IS SUNBURNT AND RESEMBLES A RATHER LARGE BEETROOT.  THIS IS 1990.  HELLO AGAIN.

Later:


Tonight, Lilith came over and it was good to have her here.  In the starlit darkness of my bedroom, with the music and the heat.  She lay in her thin dress, revealing her back and arms, looking hot and radiant.  I was boiling, due to a day spent getting sunburnt at Blue Water, but Lili and I hugged and caressed.
