My parents called this morning, my father is back from business for a few days and they wanted to see how I was settling in.

I told them about tombcoming and Doriana and asked if it was normal for things to be so awkward.

My father told me that when you meet the right ghoul, you’ll know. He said it should feel natural, you should enjoy spending time with her and talking to her should be easy.

Nothing is easy with Doriana.


He told me that when it’s right, you think about her all the time, can’t wait to see her face, to talk to her.

He and my mother held hands throughout this speech and I found myself wishing I could find what they had. They always made relationships look so easy.

After they hung up I realised what I think i’ve known all along.

I’m taking the wrong ghoul to tombcoming.
