he misses his husband

Lilia showed Agnes how to access the journal that she had seen in Tomlin’s haven. It was on an online platform, and scrolling through it, it seemed like he had been writing in it for years. Agnes smiled to herself. Despite her preference for paper and pen, it was comforting to think that she had passed down the need to document things to her son. Even more comforting to see that he had made that trait his own.
She scrolled through the pages, unsure of if she should read them closely or not. She saw mention of Tomlin seeing Roman again, getting hired by Juno, the first plans for the Warren. It seemed like Tomlin and Lilia had more of a hand in creating the warren than they shared.
She scrolled down to the bottom to reread her son’s last written words and noticed an additional page. She started reading and realized it was a letter. As she watched the screen, she noticed that it was being typed in real time.
I used to think that data security was one of your passions, but it seems like every account of yours I try to get into uses my name as a password. Or my birthday. Or the day we met.
Agnes sat and watched the words being typed on the screen. She knew that this was private, that she was sitting in on something she wasn’t invited to, but she couldn’t tear her eyes away. It was Oren and she wanted to know him, to connect with her son in one last way through the man that he loved.
Your mother read your journal and although that would freak me out, I know you wouldn’t mind.
Agnes grimaced at that, but kept reading.
You spoke so highly of her all the time and I hate to say it but you were right. She’s incredibly kind. Much younger than I thought, at least in looks. Kind of bizarre for someone that looks 20 to be your mom, but at the same time what else could she be? Your sister is nice too. I wish you had been the one to introduce me. I know you were worried about them understanding us but they’ve been really cool about it. The ghouling and the loving.
I don’t know what to do, old man. Your family said that I could continue our project and I probably will, but what do I do after that? The withdrawal is starting to set in and it’s worse than any human drug withdrawal I’ve ever had, but the worst part is knowing that you’re gone. You’re gone forever and I don’t know what to do.
Nothing is happening like it should have. I used to think that I’d outlive you. Before I knew that you loved me too, I was satisfied to just love you for the rest of my short life. And when you proposed that we stay together forever, I didn’t know how to accept it. No one had ever loved me like that, and probably no one ever will again. What does this make me now? An abandoned ghoul? A widower?
Is it selfish if I still go through with the Embrace? Your mom offered and I feel guilty for considering it. Forever was supposed to be with you, but I’ve already resigned myself to this life. There’s nothing above ground left for me, and there’s so much more I can do to help your people. Our people? I don’t know. Maybe I’ll die in the process and we can be together. Or maybe I’ll survive and I can make a better world for the children we could have had.
I used to think it was so fucking weird that you called Agnes your mom. Not that I see being a vampire as bad, but she did kill you. And then she left. But I get it now. How can she care so much? She just met me, and we had hidden so much stuff from them and she still protected me and gave me a place to stay.
It’s weird being above ground again. Gotta say, I didn’t really miss the sun that much but your mom’s apartment is pretty dark so that’s cool. She knows we were working with Fedya now, I don’t know if that’s bad or not but it seemed like they knew each other? I guess the vampire world is smaller than I thought.
You’ve said that there’s no way I can understand how painful the Embrace is until it happens, and I believe you. I really do. I know you’ve tried to explain and that it will never come close. But you know that I’ve been through a lot already. Physical pain isn’t really a problem for me. I think I’m going to do it. Or, I’m gonna ask your mom if she’ll do it. You always said she made it bearable, hopefully it will be the same for me. And I’ve already committed to this life, I can’t back down now. You know the thing I’m most scared of? I’m scared that I’ll meet someone else. I have forever right? Or at least longer than I would have. Could you forgive me for that? I don’t know if I could.
I hope that I can trust your family. I know I should, but you know me, trust doesn’t come that naturally. There’s so much I want to tell them. So much that we said we would tell them together. I have a feeling that this isn’t the first time I’ll write to you, old man. I just wish I could tell you all this in person.
