Re: [B&B: Shiloh & Diego]
The B&B did look ghastly, but it was the type of ghastly Shiloh was well accustomed to. Old Southern homes didn't modernize, and florals were the name of the day. Florals and winding staircases made for debutantes to line in dresses drowning in crinoline. He remembered seeing them all and wondering how many of them weren't as virginal as their Mothers and Daddies thought, and he looked for the dirty and chaste among them in equal measure, because fucking was fucking, and all flavors tasted just as sweet to the boy raised on causing gasps and shocked expressions. "It looks like a flower shop puked all over itself."
He took another sip of his coffee, the bitterness waking him up a little more. He kept to his slouch, wide and as entitled as his posh accent in dulcet Southern tones. "I didn't pay attention at all in church. I went until they banned me from going, and Mother was fit to be tied." He remembered that with a smile that was proud as could be. Washing in the baptismal fount had been genius, and he remembered the looks on the gathered congregation's faces. To the last, they had some level of reaction on their pious faces. It almost made him miss the local church and his attempts at fucking his way through it.
"I just arrived, so I only know my landlord," he said of his knowledge of the town, and it wasn't a lie. He didn't really know anyone from the church as himself, and no one there was about to flap their gums, not with the pictures he had on his phone. "I guess that makes you my second named acquaintance." Another smile, one that intimated things unsaid. He might hit on the guy; he hadn't decided yet. A punch to the jaw in the middle of the B&B dining room would be as enjoyable as a romp in one of the closets. Shiloh was a masochistic son of a bitch.
But ghosts didn't seem sexy. He believed in them, just as he believed in anything and everything, but they didn't make him hard as he finished off his first piece of toast. "I think a lot of things are sexy, but rotting limbs isn't on the list. I never caught feels for the zombie craze."
