A Night With Jack.

I’d promised myself, ‘Never again’. I guess I’m proving that I’m not much good at holding on to them – promises, that is. It always goes the same way when we get together. No matter how long we have been apart it is straight back to the old pattern.

We’ll start off nervously, skirting around each other. We’ll take everything, oh, so slow. What’s the rush? The night is young and we have plenty of hours to fill. We’ll take it steadily, just letting ourselves become reacquainted.

And then after a while, we’ll begin to relax. Share a bit more but perhaps still be a bit guarded. After all, you never can be really sure just who you can trust, can you? We’ll take it slowly still, take in the smokey atmosphere.

And just like magic the inhibitions vanish. Jack and I, we’re old and very close friends. Why would I keep any secrets? It’s not like Jack is the judgemental sort. No, not at all. Give him any kind of party and Jack is ready to go. I can tell him anything; my deepest wishes, my guilty secrets, my biggest fears. He’ll never tell a soul. Hell, I can behave however I like and Jack won’t blink an eye. We might even add to the smokey atmosphere ourselves. Okay, so I’d packed it up years ago but Jack won’t care about the odd cigarette.

Too bad though. It always, always ends in tears. The emotions get too strong, get out of control. He’s tricked me again. He always promises not to hurt me but he always leaves me sobbing, while he stays coldly collected, holding his bottle as always.

Why can’t I learn that Jack and I.....well, let’s just say he is so bad for me! I’m going home. Alone! I never want to see you again. Goodbye Mr Daniels!
