He took in a deep breath
"I'm tired of hiding it" he said.
his feet on the mantelpiece
the fire burning slow
his hands were immersed
in the armrests of the chair.
"I hid it for years, I want to be real"
he turned his head, curls on his cheeks
"I'm tired too" she said from her place
leaning back on the armrest
she sat on his left, couple meters away.
the feelings hung in the air
the aftermath underway
the room was filled with a sense of quiet
for now, they were just tired.
"I don't know how to do it
I don't know how this works"
she continued, eyes still on the flame
"me neither" he claimed
"guess we will find out once on"
