Everyone’s writing emotional posts and I know they’re all doing this in the ooc blog but I felt this needed to be on Mel’s blog, maybe that’s for my own sake? I don’t know. But it just feels right to post it where it all began.
Quality time with my big brother.
Jackson nodded, pushing away anything on Melanie’s bed that might be uncomfortable to lie down on. He laid back first, then patted his chest for her to lie down on atop of it. “I’ll stay with you whenever you need it, Melanie.” He whispered softly, resting an arm around her shoulders for her to snuggle closer to him. “Especially tonight.” He teased her lightly, huffing a small chuckle.
A soft, grateful smile spread across Melanie’s face as Jackson agreed, preparing the bed and inviting her to use his chest as a pillow. She laid herself upon him, curling up right against him. She appreciated the warmth of his body, wanting to only cuddle herself closer and closer. “You’re the best, Jackson, truly.” She complimented, smiling up at him from her spot on his chest. “I wish there was more I could do for you as thanks, it seems so unfair.”
Yes, it has been!
Of course! I would love for you to join me~ I will be over by in the horror novel section if you would like to meet me there.
I will be there as soon as I can! I haven’t read a horror in ages, keep an eye out for me as well for good ones ‘til I get there?
I know! I has been some time, has it not? It is lovely to see you again too, Melanie. I feel like it has been ages since we last saw one another.
Ah, yes! I would love that~ I could certainly use a bit of company.
It’s been much too long, and I’ve missed you as well Lena. It feels as though it’s been forever since we’ve last spent time together!
Well if you wouldn’t mind I’d be honoured to join you.
Jackson had said all there way to say. Sometimes the only thing a person could do was to just hold a person and say it was going to be okay. She knows he’ll always be there for her, that has to be a given. “Shh, Melanie.” He hushed her, running his fingers through her hair lightly. “It’s goingto be alright, I promise, you’re gonna be fine.” Jackson told her, though he knew nothing of what the future held. He only knew that he would be there to try and help her get to a place where things were okay. “You have nothing to be sorry for…really.” He said softly.
Melanie nodded against his chest, trying to stop her tears from flooding from her eyes. She sighed as he brushed her hair, feeling herself relaxing, finally. Everything was going to alright, Jackson said everything would be alright. Melanie had to believe he was right. She lifted herself once more, looking him in the eye again. “Thank you, Jackson.” She said, kissing his cheek lightly to enforce how much she meant. “I-I’m kind of tired. D-Do you think we could maybe lie down? Maybe we could just sleep?” Melanie asked softly. “I just… I don’t want to be alone tonight, please.”
I haven’t been there in ages, I really should start a new collection. Perhaps would you mind some company for a visit there?
I suppose now would be the perfect chance to start reading again~
"Alright, alright," Max said, chuckling. "I know where we’ll go," He was just preparing to stand as Melanie took a seat and readjusted himself so as to face her. "You want me to do it?" He said, reaching into his pocket and pulling out a coin identical to the one he handed Melanie. "Alright," He watched the coin in his hand as it reflected in the sunlight, Max turning it around every so often. What could he possibly have to wish for? He couldn’t wish for anything that wouldn’t be feasible. So his closed his eyes, brought the coin to his lips and murmured his wish against the coin, his voice below the sound of the water. For Melanie to outlive me. And tossed it over his shoulder. “Happy?” He asked, smiling sarcastically at her. “Now can we go, please? We won’t have much time otherwise!”
"Of course I do! Just don’t wish for anything stupid," Melanie warned with a smirk before sitting back and watching him make his own wish. Part of her had been worried he wouldn’t have taken in seriously, but Max seemed to feel the opposite when making his wish. She applauded when the coin fell into the water before standing up to join him. "Very happy," She assured him with a bright nod before taking his hand once more. "Alright, alright! Onward tour guide, show me the way!"
Max leaned back on his hands, observing the scene. Years of roaming these city streets made him rather observant. He watched as friends fell into lovers, and as lovers learned to let go. He watched the old married couples strolling hand in hand and the young ones, so eager and unable to keep their hands off of each other. And rarely was there a time in which he was noticed as he sat, idling puffing away clouds of smoke and just watching, leaning, observing. He’d gotten rather good at it. “Okay,” Max said, sighing happily. “We’ve got a few options now. If you’re hungry, I know a place. If you feel like learning something, I know a different place. And if you feel like walking, I know a third one.”
"Oh come on, Max! You know I can’t make decisions! What are you in the mood for, or better yet! You know me plenty well, what do you think I’d enjoy the most, hm? Because I don’t even know!" Melanie exclaimed, giggling as she took a seat next to him on the marble edge. "OOH! But before we go, you have to make a wish too. Since I’m here and all, so go on." Mel urged, nudging him gently to do as she had done only moments before. Maybe Max would wish for the same thing for himself and that would only improve the chances of it coming true. When it came to Max, Melanie would take every last drop of hope she could find.
