I paced back and forth.
Things were getting interesting.
Admittedly Iíd wanted him to fight. Hell, more than that. I wanted some sort of flicker of emotion from the kid. A sign of life, a pulse, anything.
A total fucking bloodbath was maybe a bit more than what I expected but you take what you can get.
OK, letís recap:
Me, upon finding that the kid was starting to even take Fight Club for granted, brings in A Challenger. Specifically Angel Face, a guy I met down in the video shop on Barr Street. Angel Face takes to Club like the proverbial duck to water and the kid reacts by beating the total living shit out of him.
I donít want to say the kidís got a possessive streak but what are you gonna call a guy who literally keeps his sexual fantasies in the palm of his hand?
Or would if he had the balls to follow up on them.
He would, of course, except he gave them to me. Ironyís a real bitch when you come right down to it.
Damn but that was a good fight. That was a total knock-down, drag-out, fuck-you-and-all-you-stand-for Pay Per View extravaganza. Iíve still got blood on me. Not all the kidís either. One of these nights the ringing in my ears is gonna go away too. Didnít know the kid had it in him.
Which is cool, but a problem.
Problem is, this is not his thing. His thing is shopping in catalogues, pestering the guy behind the counter for coffee-flavored coffee and doing what he can to live his life like the total lemming that he was born to be. My thing is doing everything else.
Iíve got to sit down and ponder the infinite a bit here. Which is a fuck and a half because the whole Zen-master navel-gazing thing is his domain too.
Again, ironyís a bitch.
Admittedly, I like fucking with things. My thing is fucking with things. So, naturally, when it comes right down to it, Iíve got to fuck with him. Iíve got to tweak his buttons, screw with his little mind and generally make him familiar with the concept of a cold sweat. I can do that. Done it. Nailed it shut.
Only thing is I canít help hitting all his buttons, which turns all of this right back on me and if that ainít a shit in a hand basket I donít know what is.
Now come on, who could resist it? He creates a total fantasy of the Ideal Man. His own version of Nietzsche in a bottle if you catch my meaning and he thinks itís gonna go unnoticed that the guy is also a freaking hunk.
So what am I gonna do? Of course Iím going to yank his chain. Of course Iím going to point out little things like the fact that the guy heís chosen to live with for the rest of his unnatural life is a walking Playgirl poster who could hang oil paintings up with his dick. Of course Iím gonna notice.
And when he doesnít react Iím gonna try another method.
Enter Angel Face. Poor fucker was even prettier than me. Not anymore, thanks to the kid, but even still not bad to look at. (Hell, arguably those blow jobs are going to be even better now). I bring him into the picture, into the house, into our little secret club, and the kid looses his fucking mind.
The hate coming off of him tasted like sweet, hot metal. I can still smell it on my skin. Can still feel it, if I think about it long enough.
The kid wanted him gone.
Itís the only fight heís ever won. Everybody else beats the crap out of him. He loves every minute of it but thatís how it goes. He looses to everybody.
Except Angel Face.
And then, when heís done and heís totally covered in blood and snot and even a few bits of teeth he stands up and looks at me.
And suddenly Iím thinking maybe this kid isnít half-bad after all.
Like maybe this kid does know what it feels like to have a freaking emotion and to hate to loose something and to grab on to whatever you want and hold it because otherwise it is gone in a second and you ainít ever getting it back.
And heís looking at me like that and Iím thinking: Shit.
And Iím thinking: Cool.
And then Iím thinking: Fuck.
ĎCause that is not his thing. Itís my thing. And if he makes it his thing then maybe it wonít be my thing anymore and if I donít have my thing then I donít have anything and then Iím nothing.
Again, ironyís a bitch ainít it?
So what do you do? Do you encourage the kid? Be thrilled heís no longer holding everything back and is taking a little fucking initiative for once? Or do you stuff him down and keep him the Hell out of the way because if he takes too much initiative suddenly Iím downsized and off to the Great White Ending.
But am I gonna take that chance?
