bitter sweet



"I am the worst boyfriend ever." Topher announced to Willow at work. He threw his hands up as if he wanted to quit this charade. Would it always be this way? Derrick hanging around with Henry. The dinner was so uncomfortable.

"What happened?" Willow smiled as if Topher was over reacting.

"I don't like Derrick's boyfriend." Topher informed her. "You'd think it was his baby, not Derrick's. And Derrick was totally oblivious to the whole thing. Especially, at Target. God, no telling what people thought of us. He's..he's..Henry...he's ungodly nice." He had to admit that. Topher licked his dry lips. "How..how ..can I..compete with that?" He looked at Willow.

"You just have to give it time. OK? Get to know each other. Don't write it off as if this is the way it is. You have to try. Especially, if you want to be with Josie. You do want to be with Josie? Don't you?"

He didn't like that question at the moment. "I just feel, we..we'll never be alone. If its not those two around, then..then their will always be the baby."

"You can't be jealous of the baby." Willow looked at him startled.

"No, of course not." He said. "That would just be childish." Yet, deep down, maybe he was..just a little. Just one more issue to work on. He supposed.

Oh, Topher. I like him so much too.

At least he can admit to his problems, that is always a start.
