No, Ezekiel wasn’t affected by the love potion because he was already in love with Cyndi. He wasn’t affected because his love for himself and his family is much stronger than any love potion could ever be. He’s narcissistic but he also loves Eve, Jake, Cassandra, Jenkins and even to a large extent, Flynn.
It must’ve been hard to had to find someone to love when he was younger, and since the only constant person he had was himself, he turned his love to himself. And there was so much of it, it seemed like an egomaniac. But then he met the others. Cassandra trusted him to become her senses. Jake trusted to get him through any door. Eve trusted him with the security of the Library.
Two years, they were the other constants in his life, and he, in turn, had learnt to trust them, to learn to love them as he did himself. And oh god, did he pour his love out for them. He, who used to only care about himself, would stay behind to die with them, to die FOR them. He, who used to steal for himself and only himself, would steal anything for them just to make them feel better.
He thought he was THE thief, but THEY had pulled the biggest heist ever. They had stolen his heart.
I think about you a lot. I think about you when I’m alone and when I am surrounded by people but feeling alone. I think about you when you’re right in front of my eyes and when your voice rings in my ears and when your smell lingers on my skin. I think about you when I’m in class and should be paying attention and when I’m reading your sweet, comforting words on a fragile piece of paper. So maybe saying that I think about you a lot is an understatement. I think about you all the time.
And finally finished! The first week was definitely a challenge to myself, and while it was hard I’m happy with how it worked out. I’ll be posting a full version with all of them at the end of the month, and I’ll do the same (in separate posts) with the other weeks. I won’t be doing one a day for the other weeks, but I’ll definitely put out more than one per week. Hope you guys enjoyed them!
