Episode 196: Addicted"This is fantastic; does Avalon know about this?" Sebastian asked fuming as he picked up the pieces of a pot that had smashed when the musician had apparently slid to the floor.
"It’s nothing," Xavier insisted blowing a significant amount of air through his lips as he struggled to get back on his feet.
Sebastian watched him untie the syringe from his skinny tattooed arm, and tucking the needle inside some black leather case. As if before the idea of this guy’s hands on Avalon didn’t make him sick enough, "She’s going to find out, she’s not stupid man, trust me I screwed up with her often enough to know that much."
"Don’t tell her, okay. I- things were really; they got hectic over in Asia, I-"
"Look we both know you’re not exactly in a clear state of mind here but maybe you should really check the quality control on that stuff if you think I give a damn why you started! You don’t matter to me at all, but Ava does. She’s- she’s like the best person I know, and I damn sure know she’s the best person you know-"
"Hey, listen are you telling her or what? I- I’m gonna fix this I’m going to stop, you can look even, that was the last of it," Xavier interrupted, continuously twisting his sinewy body, cradling his side, strands of black hair flying in his ashen face. He shut his eyes for a brief moment, then spoke carefully, "I- I’m getting out of here, I’m leaving for a few weeks and fix this so go and tell her right now. The next time she sees me, I- I’ll tell her I went on some retreat, to write songs, perfect songs, about her maybe and she’s going to think you’re a spiteful liar if you tell her anything different."
