Give me your rentboys, your whores, your not quite monogamous masses yearning to. Well. You know.

Location: A room. Of some sort.
Time: Not important, but probably late afternoon to early evening.

Seth Cuthbert, a small, slight boy with short Holocaust survivor hair stepped into the room. He stared at each of the gray walls, then sat down on a couch that seemed to be one of the main decorative features. After a moment, he was confronted by the entrance of another boy, an equally small, pretty sort of a boy in a top hat and a cravat. They were men's clothes, although the boy looked hardly older than sixteen. Seth blinked. "Hello," he said.

"Hello," said the pretty boy. "I'm the Saint. Who are you?"

"I'm Seth Cuthbert," said Seth, slightly puzzled. "You're a saint?"

"No. The Saint. It is different," the Saint informed him laboriously, and sat down next to him on the couch, a good deal closer than Seth would have liked. "And now," he added. "We wait."

"We wait for what?" asked Seth somewhat nervously. There was something fundamentally indecent about the Saint.

The Saint shrugged. "For the people to come. I expect they will. I," he added, with a flourish of one hand, "am a magnet. For people. Pretty people especially."

"I think you give yourself too much credit," said Seth

"You're here, aren't you?" pointed out the Saint.

Seth looked blank, then settled down to pout for a bit.

The Saint waited patiently, toying a bit with his top hat brim.

Terence laughed. "Yeah, it is. I was seventeen, by the time I persuaded him to do anything. When we got caught - he was my English teacher, actually - I was almost eighteen, and then he moved to Los Angeles and that's that," he said with a flippancy he did not in fact feel. "I still love him. Even though. I mean. Sometimes, it's just a thing you have to live with, I guess." His tone was dull and flat.

"What - really?" Seth sat up just slightly. "My English teacher is - I don't think he's transsexual, but he got fired because he had an affair with a kid. A student. I can understand why you'd love him, he's sort of insanely nice. I thought it was - what school?"

"The Queensberry," Terence said. "His name's George." He paused. "I'm sorry, it's really rude to talk about exes and things, especially after we've just, you know."

"No, not at all." Seth rose up onto one elbow. "But - George Stanton?"

Terence sighed. "Yeah, George Stanton. George Lytton Stanton, in case there's another George without the weird middle name. He's wonderful."

((Post-George Terence must never become real. He breaks my heart.))

"He is," Seth agreed, reaching up to touch Terence's cheek. "Do you write him or anything?"

((I know. He won't. I require that they live together, GeorgeandTerence, in domestic bliss in perpetuity.))

"I," Terence began. "It's hard. He ended it pretty clearly before he left, and all I want to write is sheets and sheets of love letters, but I can't, so they're like, they're like fucking telegrams." He caught Seth's hand. "Thanks for letting me be all depressing like this." There was a moment before Terence processed all of Seth's earlier dialogue, and then: "Wait. You know him? How is he? Is he okay? Does he teach where you go to school? Is he still all freckly?"

"Oh. That's awful. But yeah! I know him. And yeah, he teaches me." Seth began to grin, an idea popping into his head. "Hang on, do you want me to talk to him for you? It's the least I can do. Because he is fucking miserable without you is how he is. I knew there was a reason he was that weepy. I knew it. And yeah," he finished rather fondly, "he's still all freckly. I mean, all the visible bits."

"I don't know," Terence sighed. "He said it was impractical for the two of us to stay together. I think he's pissed at me. I mean, I sort of got him fired. And. You know."

"Well," Seth explained philosophically, "you'll never know if you don't try. I can always ask. And it is a bit impractical. Where do you live?"

"Opposite coast," Terence said. "I guess you never do know, but I do know, but you can try if you want, you're so fucking nice." He kissed him on the cheek, gratefully.

"Thanks," said Seth, and paused. "This feels a bit awkward, now," he confessed, still sprawled over Terence.

"Yeah," said Terence. "I'm very sorry. For bringing it up. I like you, I do, really, and I don't mean to imply that you're, like, to fill up space, because I like you because of you, you know?" He worried at his lip with irritatingly straight teeth. "Sorry," he said again.

"'S all right, don't worry," Seth replied, somewhat surprised by Terence's courtesy. "No, I get it. Really. I mean." He stopped for a moment. "It's obviously not just because of That Thing. Because you came onto me before you knew."

"Yeah," Terence said, "true. I just like boys, and I don't see how you're any different." He yawned hugely, cracking his jaw. "Think it would be too weird if we fell asleep together, now that you're probably picturing me with your monkish English teacher right now in your head?"
