((Aphrodisiac)) "You have no idea how much I want to." Grantaire whispered licking his lips as he held Enjolras at arms length. "Really no idea. But I can't take advantage of you like that. It's not right."

Enjolras’ eyes were blown wide, and he whined, a completely undignified sound that he would never be caught making when he was fully in control. The blond reached for Grantaire, trying to pull him in. “Why not?” He asked.

ReMis: On Our Own

The night before that fateful day at the barricades, two people suffering the same hopeless love look back on their lives with regret: Eponine, the streetwise waif, and Grantaire, the drunken cynic.

Eponine: @thefinaldeathlyhallow

Grantaire: @li-prouvaire

Eponine

And now I’m all alone again, nowhere to turn, no one to go to

Without a home, without a friend, without a face to say hello to
Grantaire

But now the night is near

And I can make believe he’s here

Sometimes I walk alone at night

When everybody else is sleeping

I think of him and then I’m happy

With the company I’m keeping

The city goes to bed,

And I can live inside my head

Eponine

On my own

Pretending he’s beside me

All alone,

I walk with him ‘til morning

Grantaire

Without him,

I feel his arms around me

And when I lose my way I close my eyes

And he has found me

Eponine

In the rain, the pavement shines like silver

All the lights are misty in the river

In the darkness, the trees are full of starlight

And all I see is him and me forever and forever

Grantaire

And I know it’s only in my mind

Eponine

That I’m talking to myself and not to him

Grantaire

And although I know that he is blind

Still I say–

Eponine

–there’s a way for us

I love him

But when the night is over

He is gone,

The river’s just a river

Grantaire

Without him,

The world around me changes

The trees are bare and everywhere

The streets are full of strangers…

Eponine

I love him

But every day I’m learning

All my life,

I’ve only been pretending

Grantaire

Without me,

His world will go on turning

A world that’s full of happiness

That I have never known

Eponine

I love him…

Grantaire

I love him…

Eponine

I love him…

Grantaire

But only on my own…
