    Summary

    Crazy things had happened, but Barney could still remember every single word.

    There weren’t many things he liked to think of that belonged to that part of his life, but these did. The words had kept him alive, they were the only thing worth remembering. Better than the padded cell, better than the darkness, better than the cries he didn’t want to hear anymore, even if they were still stuck in his head, coming out at night when he didn’t need them at all. Sleep was important, he didn’t want to miss out on it because of something like this. He didn’t need this voices anymore, he had a future now. Tommy had found a job for him and he was back where he belonged.

    Summary

    “Shopping was too exhausting, eh?“ - “Oh, don’t even say it.“

    Tommy dropped the bags onto the ground, taking time to take his coat off. Had spent hours at the mall, needing to find some lovely presents for his family and maybe some more decoration for all the rooms. Still too many things to do till the celebration, how horrible. It would be worth it, of course, but only after all the stress. Well, maybe he would come up with some more ideas today and realize what he could buy for the rather picky family members.

    Tommy wanted it to be perfect and Barney knew. No matter what Tommy said about all this celebrations, there was something beautiful about Christmas and he felt it too. Didn’t only do it to please his family, enjoying the conversations at the fireplace, beautiful dinners and smiles when the others got their presents. Barney could see it, the smile tugging at Tommy’s lips every time he felt comfortable.

    “You need to relax a bit.“ - “I will. When the day has come.“

    Summary

    Tommy woke up without a headache or other pain, but deep inside he knew that something had happened the day before. Polly loved to say that it was in his blood, feeling this sort of things even if he was still half asleep - and although Tommy didn’t believe in it, it took him only some seconds to have the pictures in his head once again. He could still remember it, details that were both lovely and not really necessary anymore, things he wanted to remember and forget at the same time. Maybe it was something dramatic inside of him that made him think that way - a part of Tommy knew that it didn’t make any sense, not when Barney was involved in the whole thing.

    Summary

    Tommy should’ve seen it coming, finding a way to prevent things from happening, but now he couldn’t stop it anymore - he had to finish what he had started.

    It was easy to blame it all on Mosley, saying that he was a bad man Tommy had to defeat. A man he could defeat, actually, despite the problems cropping up. It all seemed so easy when he looked at him, seeing this dark soul, a confidence he would have to fight against. Simply doing something good, coming up with a perfect plan to bring him down, every detail there to make Tommy succeed.

    Summary

    Sometimes Tommy wondered what was worse: To live with the consequences or to die.

    He had thought that there wasn’t much time to die in this war, actually, maybe even no time to die, after all. They should just end it, not let people suffer the whole time, but apparently he was asking for too much, apparently the others thought something else. As if it wasn’t hard enough to keep living already, doing the good things they needed to do, fighting and winning.

    But Tommy hadn’t seen it coming, some lives being erased within seconds.

    Summary

    Barney hadn’t expected Tommy to show this sweet side of him to all the people around, but apparently love could do this to people, apparently Grace could do this to Tommy. A lovely woman, one Tommy had easily fallen in love with: Ambitious, handsome, tender. Barney could already imagine other people envying Tommy for this luck he had with her, his business partners surely wanting the same when she accompanied him to a meeting or a party.

    Maybe it was a miracle that Barney hadn’t expected it, being too aware of what feelings could make people do from his own experience and seeing how much Grace meant to Tommy. She was beautiful, without a doubt, probably exactly what Tommy needed and deserved. Setting up a separate family could do no harm, it would only be right to support him at this important point in his life, being the best friend he needed.

    Summary

    The bodies sitting in the dark
    Muffled cries and frightening screams
    Some rumors spreading in the halls
    But there is nothing more to hear

    Summary

    “For Ada?“ Barney nodded and Tommy didn’t know what to answer, how to thank him properly. Somehow he always was the unexpected knight in shining armor, solving all the problems. It had seemed so hopeless, Tommy not knowing what to do as Ada just wanted to have a doll for her birthday, and there it was, the help he needed but didn’t deserve. He wouldn’t have said that it was a perfect doll, legs and arms unrealistically long and the dress a little bit weird, too - blame it on the pattern - but this smile … it definitely made up for it, the bright smile, made her look sweet.

    Summary

    “What are you gonna say now, eh?“

    Jessie smiled and hugged herself with pleasure, showing Tommy her newest achievement. All the learning had been boring, reading all this books instead of practicing, but at least there it was now. The Nephilim rune looked like a tattoo on her skin, dark on her rather pale skin, burned into it with her own stele. A lovely tool, better than the wands so many people had written stories about.

    Summary

    “Hey, do me a favor. When that kid of yours arrives, keep it away from me.“ It wasn’t exactly what Barney had expected to hear from Tommy, waiting in the living room and knowing that he still had to discuss some things with Ada. Not the business Barney needed to get involved into, didn’t even want it, but somehow he had still heard this words. Keep it away from me. He couldn’t get it out of his head, wondering why Tommy hated himself so much, why he thought it would be better that way.

    Summary

    It was a fucking awful situation, knowing that it had to be such a clandestine meeting. No chance to write his real name on the gravestone, having to make the other people believe that he was still somewhere out there, dead or alive. Roses, lilies, forget-me-nots, at least something he had loved, a way to show his feelings once again without the others having to know. The flowers made the grave look rather vivid, exactly how he would’ve wanted it.

    Summary

    It shouldn’t feel this way, should it?

    He shouldn’t be that afraid, feel more comfortable. Enjoy all the moments, blossom and feel all this happiness, but he didn’t. Why was he sad? Why didn’t he experience the same things others were talking about?

    Summary

    Tommy had always been torn between doing business properly and giving Charlie enough love and attention. Never really knew how to do it well enough, how to make his childhood fulfilled enough, but he had thought that it was okay, that he did his best giving Charlie good education and lovely father-son evenings. Had even dared to think that his boy didn’t have any secrets and behaved nice when he had to go to London for some days.

    Well, this was until he got one particular fateful e-mail.

    Summary

    Remember the last time we wrote each other letters? I don’t, but well, maybe it’s a good idea. Kinda funny to send all this words, knowing that you won’t read them immediately. But I won’t write them too often, still gotta pay for my living, you know.

    Strasbourg is pretty nice, actually. Kinda quiet at some points, but probably better than Paris or London or one of this places. Studying will start next week, so I have a week to get used to all this stuff here. Probably will take a walk tomorrow and buy some groceries, but not today. It’s quite late already, don’t know why I’m writing this letter, could go to sleep and try to get my sanity back. I’m a lost cause.
