*Lauren pulls her chair a bit more into the circle to show that she's been designated the moderator for this therapy sessions. She looks around at everyone, blushes profusely, and clears her throat.*

Um, hello, everyone. Since I'm not going to be here much longer, they were kind enough to let me lead this session. I'm not sure where to begin... *She ducks her head shyly* But I thought maybe we could talk about...love?

*Mimi sits a few chairs away, suddenly wishing she'd chosen a spot closer to Lauren--she's a bit anxious to say the least about where this session is going to go, but for now she tries to be as supportive as she can. She leans forward a bit, resting her arms on her knees and placing her chin in her hand.*

Like, what kind of love did you have in mind, Paups? *She already knows the answer, so she's not sure why she asked.* We went over, like, "maternal bonds" last time, right?

*Jacques took the initiative right away to seat himself next to Lauren, now a bit behind her as she scoots her chair forward. His eyebrows raise in intrigue of the subject matter, and he leans forward himself to show his most charming grin*

You're talking about romantic love, aren't you?

*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!
henamesthesky at 2010-07-20 05:06 (UTC) (PermaLink)
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.
henamesthesky at 2010-07-20 05:40 (UTC) (PermaLink)
*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
nosugar_nomilk at 2010-07-20 14:45 (UTC) (PermaLink)
*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.
