Re: [Lakeside Manor: Hugh & Atticus]
Hugh out and out laughed. "I've never read T.S. Eliot, but I've seen Cats at least a few times - the stage version, not the film they just made. I'm waiting until I can spend some time watching that with a friend and a unending stream of cocktails," he grinned. "But we can stop with the Webber references for the moment. Just keep Box 5 Open, keep an eye out for any notes, you'll probably be good on the bookstore front."
He took another bite of brownie and nodded enthusiastically. "I'd love to go it sounds like - I don't know, I don't know New York that well, but I miss the city sometimes. I'm with you on the rural town situation. There've been times I've thought of just getting an apartment over there or a condo - just to have a place so I don't have to drive back and forth when I'm doing a show, you know? Like," he glanced out at the lake. "Despite the crazy I like this view, but I also miss the sound of the city at night." He gave a half laugh. "My Ex would probably certifiably call me crazy for that statement, but I can't help it - it feels like home to me."
Hugh nodded taking a sip of the milk and considered quietly. "Every once in a while, I stumble across someone that it's not as hard, like, I feel like I could tell them almost anything, and they wouldn't hate me at the end, and it always feels a little like a treasure. So far though, I haven't found that with someone who is emotionally available." He broke a piece of his brownie off, put it in his mouth, and frowned slightly. "I don't think it should be hard, though. And I don't mean it's easy like a film script, I just mean... I think I've come to realize that there are friends that - I feel very at ease around. Think a partner ought to have at least that on a regular basis. Which isn't to say you'll never have miscommunication, but it shouldn't be the regular thing. I don't think."
