Deviations III: The Stink

Deviations II Deviations I

The Stink

They had just stepped into her house and locked the door when she looked around as if looking for something, crinkling her nose at the same time.

"What?" he asked.

"I'm sorry if it stinks around here."


"The result of having too many assholes sharing one place," she answered, not even looking at his direction. Her stare now seemingly darted from one spot of the floor to another.

"Assholes, eh? Do I know them?"

"Of course you do. Parents, stuff. Why, who else lives here? Son of a bitch, you can be so stupid at times."

He managed to sound off an overplayed grunt. She disappeared around a corner, and he heard a fridge creak open. He was getting impatient.

"Beatrice." Full names are commands, he'd found out early in their two years.

She appeared right on cue, eyes now pledging allegiance to him. "Yeah?"

"They're really out, right?"

"Of course they're out. We wouldn't be staying here if they weren't out."

"O, so what are we waiting for?" he asked, raising his voice. He scratched his neck.

She stood in her place a few feet away, breathing deeply, slowly deliberately. She began to crinkle her nose.

He swung open his arms in an imperious manner.

"Give me the goddamn fun, girl."

She walked into him, letting his arms reach and coil around her. Her face drew nearer to his, and she opened her lips.

"Suddenly, it stinks even more around here." She kissed him.

[Women, this might not be new knowledge to you, but some men know that their only difference with a sinus is one syllable. The tragedy lies in enjoying being one.]

So, is that footnote some form of confession to that fact? I guess it doesn't matter if you enjoy being one, as you said. Hmmm. Hmmm.

You're quite fixated on the name Beatrice. Gives me the creeps 'cause you're using my grandmother's name in such unholy... positions.

ia, it's not a confession. in fact, i was thinking of adding something like "the corsarius would like to believe that he's not of them. of course, undoubtedly there'd be people who'll believe him to be, unfortunately". :P and it does not 'doesn't matter' -- that's why it's a tragedy.

i did not know your grandma's name was beatrice! i am terribly sorry, ia-chan.

Yup, there is a complex flora and fauna existing within. It is also known that a dog's anus has less bacteria compared with. Just my 2cents.
