the crime comes last of all

an exercise in blurring the truth.

do you believe in what you see?

You're sitting on the couch - the broken couch that's too low even for you because it has no legs - when she comes up behind you. You can feel the cushion next to the one you're sitting on bend low with the weight of her foot, before she settles on the back, straddling you with wrists on your shoulders like she fucking owns you. "What's happening?"

"I have to collect the magic stars to rescue Princess Peach."

"Oh, yeah?" You can hear the smile in her voice as she slides down to wedge herself between you and the back of the couch. "Why's that?"

"She's been kidnapped."

Her arms slowly wrap around your waist, and you can feel a very slight tug as she leans back. "Again? Fuck."
