*Since they got here together at the back of the line, it was natural to park his chair next to Diego's. He's got his arms folded across his chest as Lauren starts to talk. This the first of these sessions he's attended, so he's not sure what to expect. He lets Jacques finish flirting before saying anything.* What would you say about it, Lauren? Are we talking about experiences, or thoughts, or both?

Um, well... *she falters a little bit beneath their questions, but rallies herself.* We already talked about family, so I thought...yes, we could talk about romantic love! Does anyone have...um... experiences to share?

Love is as sweet as sugar but as bitter as coffee. A dark brew with a swirl of lightness. As long as life but as brief as a heartbeat.

I don't know if anyone who's felt love needs to ask about it, but I'm willing to talk about it. I've loved many times, but I've only been in love once.

I'll never be in love again.

*After Diego finishes speaking, there's a pause, so he steps into it. Better to get this out of the way.*

I've loved and had affection for people, but I've never been "in love". Not in the way that you mean, Lauren.
I think love is a powerful force, some times creative, sometimes destructive. I've seen what it can do to people.

*Mimi rolls her eyes at Diego's dramatic prose, although for the time being she keeps silent about it remembering their "civil agreement." Her attention is focused on Jacques--she's wary of his 'handsome devil'ish smile and how close he's sitting to Lauren. She is genuinely surprised though at Acro's words, which momentarily distract her.*

Like, you never had a girlfriend or anything, Mr. Ken? Seriously? You're so nice!

Thanks, Mimi. But yeah, I've dated.
When you move around a lot it can be hard to form long term, exclusive relationships. I always thought there would be time later for that kind of thing.
There have been some girls I liked a lot, maybe even loved. But nothing like the kind of love Diego is talking about. Most of the love I've seen has been lighthearted. I don't think I've ever seen love like that.

*smiles at Ken* That's right. I don't think English has enough words for love. The inadequacy of the language makes us call a shallow flirtation by the same name as a true, deep passion, and in truth those two things have nothing whatsoever to do with each other.

*he nods, his face serious* No, they don't. I think people get those things confused, flirtation and true love. When they can't tell the difference, they can be hurt so easily.

*He turns Mimi's way when he feels eyes on him, and gives her a guy-nod of acknowledgment. But he glances to Diego and Ken as the conversation continues, and pipes up when he sees opportunity to.*

Well this is certainly a dramatic note we've hit, isn't it. On the brighter side of things, who here can say they've had good experiences with romance? *he raises his hand*
Diego Armando

*He listens to Jacques, nods. He doesn't raise his hand, but he gestures with it in acknowledgment.*

*wryly* Oh, that's right, we wouldn't want to get too serious in a therapy session, would we?

I've certainly had many good experiences with romance. What made you think I hadn't? I thought I'd implied as much. Just because I've tasted bitter, that doesn't mean I haven't known sweet.

*he regards Diego with his usual flippant grin, and spreads his hands*

Then I'm sure you already know! Love's supposed to be a beautiful, inspiring thing, is it not? Something that makes your heart beat faster than the last seconds of an NBA game!

So, inspire us with a more positive story, won't you?

*Mimi smirks and jumps on the opportunity like a cheetah on a gazelle.*

Well, like, most of my boyfriends in high school were pretty fun. But like, it's funny--I never expected to meet anyone special in a place like this. *She neglects on purpose to mention there's two people who's company she enjoys.* But y'know, love comes to you in unexpected places, I guess.

*to Mimi* Ah, is this "therapy session" now an excuse to make veiled remarks that don't fool anyone? I see. Pardon me if I'm not in the mood to witness a lot of inexpert flirting.

*to Jacques* In any case, I'm not obligated to inspire anyone, and even if I was, you're not the moderator. I wonder--do you think it's possible for someone to have a heart so dishonest that they can't even feel real love?

((Here we go again :P))

*scowls at Diego* You're not the moderator either, y'know. If you can go on about a girlfriend gone by or whatever, then I can talk all I want about guy friends I like now. I'm just sharing the love like everyone else here, so like, tough coffee cake!

*laughs* No need to take it personally. If Jacques doesn't enjoy my take on the subject, I don't see why I need to go along with his. But it's just a friendly conversation, after all, isn't that right?

If you think I've been rude, then please, tell us all about the guys you like. *He folds his arms.*
