Aw, why not? Is it because- y’know, I don’t like how being dead takes away all my jokes. It’s very mean of being dead.
I guess you moved on quickly from mourning.
She didn’t kill herself.
-snorts- I’m feeling the love… And before you go apeshit on me, it was a joke.
I’m not in the mood for jokes.
But then surely… If I let go of Delilah. I let go of you and you and her both go back to that darkness. Back to being alone… But if I keep her. I stay happy… You’re not alone… Delilah’s not in darkness… I don’t see a downside.
Don’t you get it? Delilah and I killed ourselves. That darkness is what we asked for. Whether or not you hold to us doesn’t mean that we don’t go back. We have to go back, were dead. You’ll keep seeing us but we won’t be here.
Do you really think I’d show up all over the place just to torture her? Really? Am I that much of a bitch?
I don’t know Delilah…. I have no idea what to believe okay all I know is I have to protect the ones I love.
Wait— You’re with Delilah now?
The only reason I’m with Delilah is because were both here with you… I don’t get her all the time. I’m alone. So much more alone than I ever was when I was alive. I’m in darkness and I know you think that the darkness you feel without her is as bad as it gets but it’s not…. You have no idea what it feels like to be alone and dead.
-raises an eyebrow at her- Correct me if I’m wrong, but I’m pretty sure this was the first time that I uh, saw her. So, fhere you go. And I also remember saying that I didn’t even know how I saw her, so uh, how would I see her again? I wasn’t going to, I told her that too…
Why didn’t you just tell me that it wasn’t actually you who’s been showing up all over the place? She thinks your alive.
I can’t Caroline. I can’t cope without her… At least I have her now.
Wake. Up. Delilah and I? Were dead. You can only see us because you’re desperate to hold on. You know what happened to me when I became desperate to have Jacob back? I killed myself. Granted I didn’t succeed, I did when Caleb left. You’ll never have us again…. So let go.
Have you not been looking out for her? What a bad friend… -grins sadly- You haven’t heard about her getting… Friendlier with uh, the edges of buildings?
You know why she’s getting acquainted with that idea? Because you keep fucking showing up and making everyone call her crazy. You’re dead, Delilah, you can’t keep tricking people like you’re doing her. She wants to die because everyone is telling her she’s insane. I know how that feels… I know how it feels to be called crazy and dramatic. It’s not fun you have to leave her alone. Please Delilah…. You have to…. You have to or she’ll end up like me….
