Happy St. Lucia's Day to those who are celebrating it.
Wonderful day yesterday with ScentMother and Chaya we ate, we drank, we sniffed, we had fun.
It is the cure for holiday blues, take two local Basenoters and go sniffing.
If that doesn't help maybe another installment from Candy Town will chase the blues.
Part 1 was in Saturday Dec. 6th SotD threads.
Part 2 was in Monday Dec. 8th SotD threads
Part 3 was in Thursday Dec. 11th SotD threads
Return to Candy Town Pt. 4 (A Basenotes SotD Tale in 7 Parts)
Every addict will tell you that you have to hit rock bottom before you can get help. When you’re at the heights of celebrity that I was; the fall to rock bottom takes a little longer. It also comes with a little louder of a splat.
Mary Jane and I had become hooked on Gingerbread Crack. As good as it was when we were separate. When we were together it was ecstatic. Like all who betray we were extra-careful to be good to GM. Like all who betray we were only fooling ourselves that he hadn’t noticed a change in the dynamic of our relationship.
We weren’t always around when he called because we were usually rolling around in a cheap sugar shack in the penny candy district of Candy Town. I had to be careful not to leave my scent on her so I wore richer deeper chocolates like Possets Glee. When we would recover from our haze our explanations got less and less plausible the deeper Mary Jane and I sunk in our addiction.
Like all tales of woe the cost would have to be paid in tears of sugar and the waiter had just left the bill on our table.
Mary Jane and I had been carrying on for the better part of a year at the same place. Why we thought it wouldn’t get back to GM, I don’t know. Maybe subconsciously we wanted it to happen. Anyway it was a bright afternoon full of the sights and smells only Candy Town can provide and Mary Jane and I could only see the cheap candy walls of our little room. All of a sudden the door opens. I see the manager pocket the cash GM gives him and look up into the face of my best friend and Mary Jane’s fiancée.
The frosting around his lips was a deep dark black and he said, “I knew this was going to happen. I expected you to keep Mary Jane away from this crap not share it with her!” As he pointed in disgust at the ziplock bag on the floor.
He turned and gestured to the door and four huge gumballs came into the room. Two of them took the still high Mary Jane and started towards the door with her.
I slurred, “What are you doing? Where are you taking her?”
GM looked back at me and said, “Don’t worry Metro Man its none of your concern anymore. If you come looking for her, you’ll regret it.”
Just then one of the other gumballs wound up and cracked me across the temple with a Tootsie Pop and that was the last time I saw Mary Jane.
I looked up at sakecat22 and said, “There you go that’s the story. That’s the connection between GM and I.”
Sakecat22 replied, “That can’t be all of the story. You and GM became friends again. Did you ever find out what happened to Mary Jane? C’mon you’ve told me this much, tell me the rest of the story.”
I looked over at my partner and wondered if I should but for whatever reason the holidays were putting me in a confessional mood.
So I started, “When I came to I was…..”
