I wasn’t the one who sought to dance in the rain. I never shut my eyes to feel the fall brush my skin. Perhaps the impression of companionship it reflected was stronger than what other poetries and movies were telling me to do.
Standing alone in the dead of night could scare you. But it feels like home to my heart. And in case the drops come out of my eyes, I let them stroll with the downpour. Though the malady in my heart may never leave, when it rains somehow a sapling rises from the wasteland.
And with that,
Myisolation is curbed.
And the vacancy is filled.
And I feel less lonely.
It’s like a drug you never knew you needed. Somehow propelling you to feel a little less heavy.
“I’d have invited you to the wedding if you weren’t… well, already busy. We agreed to give you the bouquet though - give it to Mom next time you see her, would you?”
“You’d have liked being there, I think. It was quiet; we only really invited our friends, since none of us really have ‘family’ anymore. Did I tell you about Arcade? John and I… the three of us, we all married each other.”
“I miss you, you know. I know it isn’t saying much… I haven’t visited in nearly ten years, but… not a day goes by where I don’t remember how much you meant to me, back in the Vault. How you helped me when Amata came out… how excited you were to see Butch and I ready for prom… getting mad but still laughing at that party…”
You did again. I’ve been missing my mom a lot lately, especially with October being breast cancer awareness month. I go to postsecret website today, which I do every Sunday, and then I see this secret…her mantra. I sure miss you mom. I’m sorry for not being a better son. It’s one of my biggest regrets. Thank you Frank I needed this today more than you’ll ever know.
Nobody had predicted a love story between them, certainly not either ! In vault 101, they didn’t like each other : Butch played as a rebel, Vittoria was the good girl, studious and wise. They had fought many times, Vittoria protected her friend Amata against the Tunnel Snakes. So, what happened ? Vittoria felt lonely in the Wasteland, and she was nostalgic of her past. And Butch in Rivet City, felt lonely too (even he didn’t say anything about that). Their new team was so difficult, two personalities so far ! But, with time, their discussions became more personal, and a friendship emerged. Butch, behind everything, was a nice guy, funny and alway there when Vittoria was tired or sad. A night, she kissed him. And the friends became lovers. But they knew each other very well, they talked and didn’t secrets between them. Ten years after their first kiss, they always together. Sometimes, it was really difficult but they’re still a couple. With two children, and Butch is a great dad in Megaton. They live a long-distance relationship but they talk by radio and Vi come to Megaton as soon as possible.
