"I do love him John.", she says her eyes brimming with adoration as she looks down
upon the parasite wrapped around her body.
"He gives me what I have always wanted, companionship.
He has made my life worth living."
"You sure are right Jane, she has made my life so much happier

They both turn to look at me,
glazed eyes and jaundiced skins. Their faces anything but pleased.
"What about you darling, when are you going to find the one that completes you?"
"You know the sugar to your bitter cocoa?"
I sighed in mock wistfulness, received a sympathetic pat and was deemed too boring for further conversation.
After all how was I going to tell them? I was not waiting for someone to complete me but
Be the ice-cream to my brownie?
