25 September 3013 — Sean's Loft


This time, the band starts a little slower and more mellow. They play more of an acoustic sound and Sean takes a seat on a stool he'd used in the first song. Peny takes up her seat in Sean's computer chair again and whispers, "I wish Riv were here to see this…" before Sean's voice picks up, soft and slightly raspy with a hint of desperate in his voice.

Desperate for changing, starving for truth
I'm closer to where I started… chasing after you
I'm falling even more in love with you
Letting go of all I've held onto
I'm standing here, until you make me move
I'm hanging by a moment here with you

He looks at his sister, then rolls his eyes as she makes dreamy flutters of her eyes and mouths 'Rivea' at him. 'No' he mouths back, before he nearly misses his cue.

Forgetting all I'm lacking
Completely incomplete
I'll take your invitation
You take all of me… now…

The band really picks up into a heartfelt but harder rock as Sean closes his eyes and focuses on both singing and playing his bass. Peny just watches as the band dives into their music, bopping slightly to beat as they feel it work.

I'm falling even more in love with you
I'm letting go of all I've held onto
I'm standing here until you make move
I'm hanging by a moment here with you
I'm living for the only thing I know
I'm running and not quite sure where to go
And I don't now what I'm diving into
Just hanging by a moment here with you

There's nothing else to lose
There's nothing else to find
There's nothing in the world
That can change my mind
There is nothing else
There is nothing else
There is nothing else

The band slides back into the more acoustic slower achy sound as Sean's voice takes on the slightly desperate quality again, still slightly raspy and heartfelt. Peny's eyes have closed as she listens, swaying slightly to sound and the lyrics. Quickly she picks up her comm and starts to record the band with it, a coy smile playing on her lips.

Desperate for changing
Starving for truth
I'm closer to where I started
Chasing after to you..

And there they go, picking right back up into the rock of the song as they all bop their heads in time to the feeling of the music and the rhythm of the emotion. Sean's eyes close again, playing as if his heart were on display.

I'm fallin' even more in love with you
I'm letting go of all I've held onto
I'm standing here until you make my move
I'm hanging by a moment here with you
I'm living for the only thing I know
I'm running and not quite sure where to go
And I don't know what I'm diving into
Just hanging by a moment here with you

Just hanging by a moment (here with you)
Hanging by a moment (here with you)
Hanging by a moment
Hanging by a moment here with you…

As the music ends, Sean looks up and notices Peny hit the send key… that elicits a strong groan. "Peny you didn't!" And he's on his own computer quickly trying to kill the message, but it's too late. He traces it… and sighs at the ceiling. "No, Peny seriously… are you trying to scare her off?"

Peny looks at Sean hurt, "What do you mean scare her off? You guys are in love after all." To which Sean shakes his head, "No Peny, we're not. We like each other, but we're not in love… that takes a lot longer than three weeks of friendship and four days of dating. Now, I have to try and explain this and hope she doesn't freak out and stop talking to me."
Peny pouts, "I'm sorry Sean… I thought, well, you guys are so great together and it's just…" she turns and sits back down, looking a little defeated and also rather glum. Sean drags the stool over, his friends all waving and saying they're going out for lunch at the mall. Sean waves and sits down next to Peny.

"Peny, look… Riv's never really dated anyone, and she's a bit skeptical about this whole thing. And I… well I'm not in a place to be in love with anyone right now. Roxy is still too fresh a wound, I need more time to heal and work through some of my personal issues before I can begin to love someone again." Sean puts an arm around her shoulders. "So, lay off Riv please? She's probably already feeling all sorts of pressure after the picnic, and now… with me being all gloomy and 'woe is me', I just don't want her to feel like she's supposed to fix everything. 'Cause she isn't supposed to, she's my best friend, and sure we're dating now… but it's still new."

Peny looks up at Sean and nods, leaning her head into his ribs and feeling the strength there in. "Sean, I'm sorry… I'll send Riv another message and apologize. I guess throwing you guys a celebration dinner isn't really a good idea huh?" Sean smiles and hugs her tight, "Celebration dinner might be nice, but not so much as a celebration as it is just a sit down dinner with the three of us. It would be good to just spend time together, that's how this works after all. I'm in no hurry to realize my dreams, and there's nothing saying that I will do so with Riv, but that also doesn't mean I can't give it time to try." he smiles and kisses the top of her head.
