And I feel horrible. How could I do this to him? Well, technically I haven't done anything wrong, at all. Akom came into the store today. I hardly ever think of him anymore. Every now and then I might have a dream with him in it, but nothing major. But today before I went to work I was thinking of him way too hard. I'm almost convinced that I made it all up, maybe he never came in the store. I haven't woke up yet, and this is turning into a very long dream. This time I was working in Lifestyles. I haven't worked in books in a long time. I was stocking a few Xbox 360 games when I saw two guys out of the corner of my eye. I felt like I'd been hit by lightning. I knew it was him, I didn't need to look at him dead on to know. He was with his brother, who asked if we had the new game Brutal Legend, which was right in front of me. So I handed him the game.

"How have you been?" I asked Akom.

He said he was good. He looked good. I was shaking. I couldn't focus. He was wearing a white t-shirt that showed just a little bit of his chest. I could barely stand.

"How are things out that way?" I motioned my hands to the left, and felt like an idiot immeadiatley after.

"Good, I'll be here for a few days." God did I want to tell him I'd love to hang out. But I couldn't do that. So my response was just it's good to see you. Then I walked away.

My hands were shaking like crazy. I was mumbling to myself. I almost started crying or laughing, I can't remember which one. I moved down a few aisles to stock the budget games. They both walked by, I looked up in time to see Akom look back and smile. They went over to the music department. I was still acting crazy, and I looked up to see him looking again. I couldn't take it. I went to the office. Felicia was in there, I tried to explain myself with little success. I told her I loved Stephen, but the guy in the store made me crazy. She asked who and I showed her. I think they saw us looking at them. They were checking out. I tried not to look out the window again. So I walked out just in time to see them about to leave. Of course he looks at me.

Why would he do this now? It's all I've been able to think about. I don't want to lose what I have with Stephen. He is the love of my life. But I just don't see how Akom can affect me like that now. It's just not fair. I've told Stephen before that if I had the opportunity to be with anyone in the world, I wouldn't leave him. Not even for Johnny Depp, or any other famous, rich person you can think of. But there's always been that one person in the back of my mind. Now he's back in view. He's the only thing I see, everything else is blurry. Maybe if I just close my eyes tight, I will forget the way he looks. I can start all over again. But do I really want to forget?
