By now you’ve met Dev and Dee. And you are thinking what the fuck just happened? See there are a few shorts you aren’t seeing. Not suitable for work type posts that have been written. They are in our wheel house and as time goes on I’ll share them.
Just know it’s not out of the blue. There are conversations that have happened. There are situations that occurred that you haven’t fully seen yet because they aren’t from my perspective. AJ’s been tickling her writing by writing Sage. Just as she wrote from Dev’s point of view for her short story competition.
I hope you’ll come along for the ride even though it’s not a traditional relationship. AJ has this desire to make my life complicated. It’s not done on purpose of course, it’s the writer doing the writing thing. Conflict and all that. But every so often AJ runs across this character that just says “Hey, I’m inspiring! Write me! Include me!” That’s what happened here. I met a character I absolutely fell in love with – literally and figuratively. And it wasn’t a character that could fill a role that had yet to be mentioned yet. There has always been two meant for me. I didn’t know her. Honestly I still don’t. I’ve been focusing on that relationship as of late in my head.
But this guy, he became all consuming. I needed him. I need him. And honestly he inspired The Children of Morpheus. Since shit happens and worlds are separated Dev came into being. He’s AJ’s rendition of this character, this man I fell in love with. AJ doesn’t do him justice but AJ tries. So instead of two loves, I get three.
I get a man who is my first love. The one who opens my heart and never lets go no matter how hard it gets. He’s as insecure as I am but we seek comfort in one another. I get another, who is tough and strong and whose strength binds everyone together, she’s the glue when the rest of us fall apart. I may not love her as I love the others, it’s hard to get past my issues with women, but I love her none-the-less. She’ll be the rock we all stand on. Typical for a woman right? Always there when you need them. And then Dev. A man who confident, sarcastic, so much like me that we tend to rub each other the wrong way at times. Though it’s those things that make our love stronger. Knowing no matter what we’ll always have each other’s back.
I’m telling you all this now because I know it feels kinda sudden. But it’s not. It’s just the beginning pieces missing. We’ll fill them in. This isn’t a cause for sadness. Sage isn’t going anywhere. I’m not going anywhere. My family is just going to be that much stranger than it already is. But what did you expect from me?
