It’s not selfish, Logan. Just because we live forever doesn’t mean we can’t date or do everything everyone else does. Dylan is like, what, seventeen? Alex is twenty-something. I’ll have to worry about what happens with me and him before you and Dylan even have to worry about it. Plus, I’m not saying this will happen, but… people do break up. Don’t hold yourself back from having a life, just because one day she’ll get old and you’ll still look the same. Trust me, I’ve been through it before. Alex won’t be the first person who grows old while I stay young, and he probably won’t be the last…
I just can’t see myself being doing the right thing by not ending it. I get what you’re saying but it’s like I’ve spent this whole summer convincing myself otherwise.
What’s the situation?
Dead boy and a living girl, that’s certainly not the recipe for a lasting relationship.
You two could still be together. Age, or aging, has nothing to do with it. If you really like her, then you shouldn’t worry about those things until they start becoming a problem. It’ll be a while before you two have to worry about this. So just have fun, and put those thoughts on the back burner. Trust me, I’ve been there.
That’S the thing, until they start becoming a problem. You and I both know it’s gonna become even harder. I tried to put it on the back burner already, we had fun and I want to keep having fun but it’s selfish.
Ahh. So you think you don’t deserve nice things?
It’s not necessarily that I don’t think I do, I mean at times that is the case. But this situation is different, it just doesn’t work out.
I wouldn’t of asked if I thought it was a burden.
Okay…well most people now know that I’m a ghost which means that I’m dead, and what that also means is that I can’t age. Dylan on the other hand is alive and ageing. The two and two just don’t go together. It’s a doomed relationship. So now it’s basically me just figuring out how I can figure this out.
Nice things don’t happen to dead people? I don’t know man, it just happens to work out that way.
How can you change that?
Well, either way I’m getting the shitty end of the stick. It doesn’t get to work out for me.
I’m guessing that means something is up? You don’t have to tell me, but I’m sure it would lighten your load a bit.
I don’t want to burden you.
I prefer ‘box of chocolates,’ but to each their own.
I’m usually not the pessimist, but life isn’t always my cup of tea.
