Street Kid

After a while (on EU referendum night), Cameron needed a stiff drink. “He sent someone to get some Scotch from his personal collection upstairs. He was pouring the Scotch a bit. Nancy, his 12-year-old daughter,  fell asleep at his feet."   Soon Cameron was peering at a laptop with Nancy draped across his knees, fast asleep. Numerous people remarked on her presence that night.

All I want in the world is grungy L&V otayuri who adopted some street kid and are doing their best to be parents but it's L&V otayuri so I can only imagine it would be a huge mess

This is interesting to me anon, cause I always saw Otayuri as DINK (double income no kids) rockstars with a couple of furbabies for Yuri and some plant babies for Otabek. 

Maybe it’s because they’re so young (even when aged up in fanworks) that I have a hard time seeing them as parents? Where Viktuuri it’s like, I can at the very least see them being paternal, talking about having a family, considering their options, crying when they meet their son/daughter, etc. 

Whereas with Otayuri I just imagine them as cool uncle/camp counselor types who get along with kids well enough, but are happy to hand them back to their parents. 

Elaborate on this with me (if you’d like). Cause you’ve clearly thought about this a lot. I’m curious. 

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
