Re: capullo de rosa; dietre & hugh
Though there were people who knew about his ability, Dietre had never spoken about it as much as he had just now. At least, not to anyone who said they believed him. There had been endless discussions with psychologists who did their best to analyze each and every encounter all to no avail. After a while he stopped bringing them up, pretended the cocktails of pills he was given worked, assured them his ‘hallucinations’ were under control. It was strange to talk about it all freely over dinner with someone as normal as Hugh.
The subject of fathers was no less heavy than ghosts. Dietre listened without comment as he ate, waiting a respectful time before speaking. “It’s good that he takes an interest in you. He must want a connection, even if he is reserved.” Hugh was lucky, Dietre’s father would have never come to a performance of his.
“I wouldn’t mind at all if a man approached me and told me he was my biological father.” Another faint smile. “Sadly I resemble mine too much to hope for that.”
“Is there a reason he chose Repose, of all places?” Dietre asked, curious. Things didn’t really seem like they happened by chance in Repose, mysteries lurked in every corner. Then again, he had to assume that property was cheap where monsters and magic were prevalent.
