i'm-somewhere-in-here

Afterword
  • Q: Why did you do this?
  • A: Because there is rust on the knives and blood on shattered mirrors, there are cracks in the foundation and everything is crumbling.
  • A: Because it looks safe from the outside, gold paint fresh and ornate curtains drawn closed, solid wooden doors painted sunset colors locked tight.
  • A: Because there are flowers growing wild in the garden because no one's looking after them
  • A: Because house is decrepit with vermin and smells of dust and mold when you enter.
  • A: Because there are bowls of porcelain shards She saved on the kitchen table, pages of Her plans and cat photos tacked to the walls, and His gunpowder handprints on everything else.
  • A: Because there are flowers growing on their graves.
  • A: Because our house still looks nice from the outside, regal and strong and not like the rafters are splitting and not like I'm still mourning them, not like I'm rotting through from the inside.
  • A: Because the house is still here and the flowers are growing and there are killers laughing in a bar somewhere and I'm still here with the curtains drawn.
  • A: Because they died and I'm still here.
  • A: Because sometimes the concrete has to break for flowers to bloom.
  • Kara: If I were a zombie, I'd eat you first.
  • Lena: I don't want your candy, what I really want is your number.
  • Kara: That skeleton over there said he'd get your number for me, but he didn't have the guts, so here I am.
  • Lena: I'm no vampire but I'm fine with getting no sleep and biting your neck all night.
  • Alex: Can you two flirt somewhere else? I'm dying here
  • Kara: We're not flirting
  • Lena: We're trading pick up lines
  • Alex: Is that what you kids call it now? "trading pick up lines" psh
