I will be posting this story on RoyalRoadl.com
       There is a timeless man sitting on a cliff on a Greek island. The man himself does not look Greek, or even an islander for that matter. To anyone else, he looks exactly like a man, a man playing with a pale yellow swallowtail butterfly on a Greek island. He cages and uncages the butterfly with his fingers in a game where only he knows the rules, and the butterfly is his pawn. A warm gust of wind whips short strands of ash blond hair away from eyes. A second man approaches the sadistic game and sits beside the first; his dark, narrow eyes match the quiet cautiousness of his body, a slight frame he keeps neatly to himself. They pass the time in silence, their only background being the crashing of the waves against craggy rocks and the wind buffing their ears.
       “That’s a Papilio Machaon,” the man informs the other who is playing with

Another week goes by and he hasn’t seen Donnie at any of the usual spots. Charlie can’t even bring himself to go to the café. Work piles up on his desk and he cannot afford pointless distractions from his job. He thought Donnie would be perfect since he always seems to hide behind an immutable mask of nonchalance and general disinterest in anything that wasn’t trivial. Donnie has made his choice too -- he walked away after seeing who he really was. Charlie shuffles the papers before him with more force than necessary and thumps them hard on the desk to ensure they are neatly stacked on all sides. It was Donnie’s fault anyway for having displaced naïve illusions about him. Charlie sighs and pinches the bridge of his nose. People must always hide who they are -- it’s only natural etiquette. This shouldn’t even be an issue.
When he was a child,

He hasn’t been back to his favourite bird-feeding spot since his rejection from Donnie. We absolutely cannot understand each other, Charlie thinks.
Midday rolls by and the chill air that has pervaded the office since this morning has persuaded Charlie’s stomach that anything more substantial than a Snickers bar would effectively warm him up. In order to avoid any social action that isn’t strictly necessary, he swiftly ducks outside with his lunch box.
It’s no secret even to Charlie that he does not have much in the way of emotions or affect (things like body language such as smiling, touching others during conversation, the types of ways most people express themselves without words). If he is being himself, most people find this unsettling. And so he shies away from the swarming faces with concealed judgment, and withdraws into the shelter of his own mind where he recuperat

His stomach hurts, and it’s not the kind that can be fixed with Advil and a good night’s sleep. Charlie runs a nail along the tight stitches stapling his skin together as if to test its durability. He winces and pulls back from the tender flesh. Reliable enough, he thinks. Funny how every time he lands in a hospital it’s always at a turning point in his life. He takes a step back for a moment. In hindsight, it had been pointless -- no, naïve -- of him to seek out any one of his parents in a half-assed effort for validation. Everyone around him has become such shaky foundations of themselves that relying on them was equal to following sheep off a cliff. The blind leading the blind. His mother stabbing him in the gut was the last clue. People always get scared and run away; they always leave him behind while they obsess over themselves. He never wants to rely on anyone a

Charlie looks at Finlay with eyes smoked red with fatigue, likely seeping excess alcohol that his body could not consume fast enough. He cannot comprehend the vision in front of him, and the task to do so is so great, he is tempted to believe him a sad, drunken apparition. They are on different planes of existence altogether. And how sad it is indeed to find the past at his doorstep while he's been struggling with it all these years. Charlie leans on his knees and throws up.
Finlay takes a step back and avoids the spatter. Nausea thrums and bubbles forth in the pit of Charlie's stomach as he stares at Finlay's dark leather shoes; his neck has turned to rubber, and he can't lift his head to face Finlay. His hands are shaking, and he feels like an old man. A warm pressure presses against his shoulders and he is pulled inside.
He doesn't want Finlay to see him, even less like this. So he does what he knows best

"Just you an' me. How 'bout it?"
Finlay twangs a guitar string. He's the perfect image of a cowboy pining against the backdrop of a romantic wilderness Charlie thinks he can see through his music, instead of the hospital room that has had him walled in for two days.
"I can't, Finlay."
"You can't or you won't?"
Charlie can feel the disappointment of a crossed child wash over him hotly. But if he stays here, he does not know how long it will be until he tries again. Until he breaks down and becomes a deadweight to all those around him. Finlay's charity is unnecessary.
"This isn't about…" Charlie stops and sighs. "It's complicated," he says.
He can see that Finlay will not be satisfied with such a vague and perfectly generic answer. But how could he tell him? Where would he even start? Finlay could not possibly know how he feels, and yet he thinks he should already know.

His arm hurts. Charlie looks down and sees his sister pulling hard at it; her face red, shadowed by an impregnable fear. She is yelling something at him in garbled, angry words. It's her lipstick. Her lipstick has gone missing and she thinks – she knows – it's him. Last time she found her bangles and her nail polish under his mattress, so this merely furthers her suspicions. His shoulders hurt from the way her fingers dig into his skin. Exasperation irons out the temporary lines in her face as she throws him aside and storms into her room.
Charlie rubs his fingers into his shoulder blade and massages the bruised area. Soon enough, his name is called and he has to face trial before his mother. Her face is soft but stretched taut around the corners from fretting over details he could not see. "God is watching you," she says, "don't you lie to me. Lyin's a sin, Charlie, and sins are punished. No son of mine

The house could be cleaner, Finlay thinks as he nudges a pizza box under the couch with his foot. Remains of takeout cartons, empty plastic soda bottles, and magazines litter the living room table as if he were hoarding them.
"Eh… I swear I was gonna throw these out tomorrow…" He hastily gathers an armful of magazines and cartons and hurries off to the garbage can in the kitchen.
After a brief moment of scurrying around the room and uttering a few times, "Er, just a sec," the place seems a lot airier. Finlay never stopped cursing himself the whole time.
He turns back to the boy and smiles brightly at him, as if to cover up the ungainly state of his home, and says, "We have the place to ourselves."
Charlie sweeps a sharp gaze over the room, giving everything a thorough once over, before settling his eyes on Finlay.
His locked gaze makes Finlay squirm a little. "You… sure you can stay here for a bit?"

It's still hot to the touch. Everywhere he's touched Finlay flares up at the recollection. Will he remember? He wonders. But Charlie is miles away, a star amongst a million others in a foreign constellation. Perhaps his voice will only take a few hundred light years more until it finally reaches him. Does he not get lonely up there?
Finlay doesn't understand it. He's always been clear about his goals and has never failed to let them be known. If he hides his desires from everyone, how would he ever fulfil them? Everyone has always let him off easy because of his easy nature and good looks, so he has gotten used to it, and gets bored because of it.
Because almost the whole world are actors.
He plays the part of the spoiled child, the pretty face, the one who milks others for all they're worth. It's no wonder Charlie would never believe he's serious. The beauty of an affair, after all, is its ability to exist as a single, unique memory

"You don't get it, do you, Finlay?" Charlie says dryly, as if he were talking to a pre-schooler.
The boy is shaking violently, like he's trying to hold himself back from thrashing out at him. Finlay puts both hands on his shoulder in an effort to hold him down. Charlie tries to shrug him off with strong aversion, but only succeeds in making Finlay hang on with an even stronger determination. Charlie looks up at him with eyes brimming with consternated horror. Something inside Finlay recoils at the sight. Don't look at me with those eyes, he thinks.
"It'll hardly go away if you keep touching me," Charlie says in earnest.
Finlay lets go in surprise. He's the one causing this reaction? He doesn't know whether to feel repelled or flattered, though he feels like he should be embarrassed for Charlie and be at least merciful enough to leave him alone. But there is also something thrilling i

Finlay tries desperately to distract Charlie for the rest of the day, but Charlie does not respond. The only reactions he gets out of him are tight nods or monosyllabic answers, and yet his expression hasn't changed from yesterday's. Somehow he feels like he's retracting further into himself and he could barely reach him anymore. Was it because of last night? Finlay's philosophy has always been to ignore things when they got out of hand until they got better on their own. But when it comes to a rare specimen like Charlie, he has no idea what to do. Leaving him alone could mean that he's not serious about being a friend, but keeping close might push him away. How much personal space is required in this situation? How do you measure space?
While he is mulling this over, Charlie thanks him for the weekend and gets out of the car. Before Finlay can say anything, the boy is already halfway down the street. The fact th

D-day has arrived. Finlay's whole body is thrumming with excitement and a measured apprehension at what the day's events could unravel. He takes his brother's car (a silver slick BMW sedan that hasn't kissed the road enough) to pick Charlie up and drives toward the ranch. An eerily strained silence pervades the entire drive despite a few one-sided failed attempts at conversation. This silence, Finlay feels, is a defensive armour that doubles its resistance at every word he says, and made just for him. Maybe if he talked about family he would get him to talk and they could know more about each other.
"Hey, uh..." Finlay starts, feeling less and less confident with every sound that exited his mouth. "So... You know the chain of supermarkets 'Shoprite'?" His voice sounds unbearable even to himself. "Well my father owns it. My mom also works for a major news magazine as a foreign correspond

So the boy has a soft southern drawl after all, Finlay notes. He replays the words over and over in his head. Absolutely incredible, robotic or possibly even alien. He's an odd specimen that he would like to prod and tease some more, have him show his hidden side. Finlay still can't believe all he has to do is just talk to the guy. Is he that desperate for company? Or maybe he has a hidden agenda. The offer is enticing all the same.
It's already eight o'clock in the evening which prompts Finlay to go on the prowl for food in his house. All the fast food joints in town are too far to reach on foot and he's too lazy to drive there anyway. His brother is home this time and so he does what he normally does on these occasions. At about this time he must be in the middle of an online computer game. Finlay wishes his brother could get out of his rut and go find a job.
"Colin," he whines outside his door. "Col

Charlie does not want to speak to Finlay. Charlie knows he is pitiful; he does not need Finlay's words to paint a picture for him. He knows the boy will likely tattle on him to all their classmates, but Charlie cannot find it in him to care much. Being worlds apart helps distancing himself from such preoccupations. It has been two days and Finlay has still not let up on following him everywhere, even when students started looking at the both of them funny.
The place where he has locked up his bicycle is empty except for the broken chain. He looks up and sees Finlay approach him, bike in hand; he is smiling.
"So you ride a bike to school," he says. "Pretty lame."
Charlie blinks at him, wondering only if the boy intends to keep the bicycle, and if so, how much it will cost to replace it.
"You oughta get the chain looked at." The boy frowns and clicks his tongue. "What's wrong with you? Why don't you ever talk to people? Or is that mouth

Hello? -ello, -llo, -lo, -o *echoes*

I've been absent waaaay too long. Since May? Things have happened. I got my teacher's qualification degree from my French uni, I've moved to Hong Kong, moved into a new apartment with bf, and am now working. And any free time I get I just waste on manga and anime OTL;; (mostly manga). I also plan on getting a British teacher's qualification (and then no more!).

BUT! Due to some very nice encouragement from a friend, I've decided to pick up where I left off and finish my goddamn story. *motivated* I've already outlined most of the next chapter and I know where the rest is headed, all I need to do now is put it all on paper. I'm very excited to write out a very emotional scene for my characters that will be the final climax of the story. Though I wonder if everyone has forgotten this story haha :iconbrickd-plz:

It hasn't all been manga, though, hehe. Right now I'm reading two novels: John Dies at the End by David Wong, and The World According to Garp by John Irving.
