Goddamn, he needed a cigarette. But the cancer sticks were back inside and Pierce didn't feel like going back in. It was a nice night out anyway, and they were actually having a discussion without screaming for once. Nevermind that it had to be close to 3:00 AM by now. "Aura loves you, she believes that you can be better. You have to believe that too, Simon. That's where it all begins."
