Summary: Backup, musing.

Love's overrated. I figured that out a long time ago. It’s handing your heart to someone you can never really know, giving them the power to hurt you and then watching as they do.

I stick to sex. That’s overrated too. Sweaty, illicit fumbling with some strange man you pick up in a bar. Ultimately unsatisfying. Empty.

Yeah, I'm convinced. Others aren't. I watch as Chris flirts with him, all dimples and blue-eyes. Hopeful, even after all he’s been through.

He catches me watching, smiles.

“Hey, Backup.”

Sam smiles too, sweetly, then turns back to Chris and glows.

Love's overrated.
