1 It's a Long Story

Al looks at me steadily. “I think,” he says, “that you’re actual mental.” 

Oh god, here we go. Better find a hat for the nice people at Waitrose/Aldi to throw their coins into.

“But it could actually work.” Al is officially as mentally unstable as me. “And, I guess it would sort both our problems out.”

2 Belly-Flop Feeling

I wrinkle my nose. “You’re disgusting.”

“And you’re in need of a place to stay tonight, so let’s get going, shall we?”

3 Avocado and Poached Eggs

“If it isn’t the golden couple,” a voice laughs, and we break apart like two guilty teenagers who have just been caught snogging behind a tapestry on the Transfiguration corridor. James is standing there. 

The knot in my stomach pulls harder, and I don’t know why.

4 Touché

He raises his eyebrows. “No, it is I: Wizard God.” Then he smirks. “I take on the appearance of the most attractive person you’ve seen in the past twenty-four hours.”

I (painfully) roll my eyes. “Nice try, but I distinctly remember looking in a mirror yesterday.”

5 Don't We?

“It’s too complicated, Al. And people would get the wrong idea. I mean, it’s not like we actually have feelings for each other.”

“Don’t we?” He looks down at me angrily, his green eyes narrowed.

6 Firewhiskey and Sainsbury's Basics Vodka

 And it turns out that firewhiskey and Sainsbury’s Basics vodka do do wonders for dragging one out of the depths of self-pity. Who knew?

7 Wine is Nice

Wine is nice to me. Wine doesn’t start playing happy families with some cheating tart. Wine doesn’t get your hopes up and then just sod off.

8 Homes and Hovels

I trail off because I don’t know how to string the right words in the english language together to say, ‘I’m flattered and all but we’ve only known each other for a month and I’m worried that maybe you just want to harvest my organs.’
