    “They cursed me, her family,” Darla says. “So I would feel the suffering she felt times a thousand. Times a million. So I would feel every bad thing I’d ever done, forever.”

    “Well,” Buffy says. “You gotta appreciate the poetry of it.” They sit side by side on the edge of the bed. Buffy is thinking about blood on the walls as much as she’s thinking about the fact that her diary is laying right near Darla’s hand and wouldn’t that be embarrassing. “Do you feel bad?”

    Darla shrugs. That’s what she offers for centuries of suffering: a shrug. “They underestimated how much I can compartmentalize.”

    Summary

    Eames hasn’t spent much of his life thinking about what Arthur gets up to in his free time, but he sincerely doubts it usually involves getting strung up from ceilings by his wrists and electrocuted.

    For an incredibly brief but entirely legitimate two seconds, Eames considers burning the images and getting back in bed. However, it would be rude not to do something about Arthur’s predicament and at the end of the day, Eames’ mother never let rudeness slide.

    Or guns at the table, but that’s another matter entirely.

    **

    Eames is thirty-six years old.

    He has been a dream forger for eleven years.

    He has four permanent addresses and lives nowhere.

    **
    A story about wasting time and making up for it again.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    You will be bold, one day, Mal told him, in their earliest days of friendship; strangers who knew each other.

    And she told him, Never forget, a life of dreams is a life imagined.

    It had felt attractive then, alluring. The thought of a life of dreams.

    He understood better, sitting in the Cobb’s porch wearing a heavy sweater and loose jeans, a brace around his right foot to keep his torn Achilles in place. He understood that a life of dreams wasn’t good, it was only imagined. It wasn’t real.

    A life of dreams was a life not lived.

    And he wondered, not for the first time, if he was not living a life at all, only imagining one.
