So, let’s get right to it, shall we?
Alright, let’s do this.
IT: Ready, let’s go!
You’ve been together for 10 years now, is that correct?
Oh my god, it still shocks me when I hear it, I can’t believe it’s been so long.
IT: That’s right, 10 years. *chuckles*
Well, closer to 11, I think. It was the night between November 31st and December 1st, so that’s… 10 years and 9 months. Wow!
Amazing! Tell us how it happened, how did you two meet?
Well, uhm, it was actually pretty out of the blue to be honest, I was out with a couple of friends, wasn’t really feeling that great and didn’t yet know what was going on, and that’s when I saw IT out of the corner of my eye, just staring back at me from afar.
IT: I was blown away, not gonna lie, haha! I couldn’t believe my eyes when I first saw him, there was this almost visible trail of stench he left behind him, it was like the desperation inside him was reaching critical levels and about to explode. I just thought “my god, he is ripe for the picking!”
And I guess IT just went for the kill, so to speak, haha!
IT: I latched on to him immediately and let me tell you, I instantly knew this was a winner. He wasn’t very far along, but I could feel the immense potential inside him. I knew I had hit the jackpot.
Wow, that is really something! So how have your lives been since then, how do you two get along?
Oh it has been pure hell, years and years of having IT destroy me from the inside, bit by bit, consuming me, chipping away at my will to live little by little each day. NOT a fun time, haha!
IT: Oh come on, you’re making me blush! There were a few times we didn’t see each other that much, but I never gave up on him. I held on tight and clawed my way back to the surface each time, eventually.
That’s true, let me tell you, if there’s one word I would use to describe IT, it would be “relentless.”
IT: Hey, listen, if anyone deserves praise, that’s you. I have been wreaking havoc for such a long time now, and I don’t want to sound like a dick or anything, but I think I have been doing a damn fine job, too. Yet here you are, still somehow… here. You’re a champ man, don’t let anyone tell you any different. Unless, of course, it’s me, ’cause I will actually do that, haha.
Haha, yeah! I don’t know, it’s hard. It’s like… carrying all this pain with me, always ready to eat at my brain and bring me to my knees, I honestly don’t know how I’ve made it this far. Not going to lie, there were a couple of times where… you know, I almost gave in, and…
IT: Well you should! How much longer do you think you can keep this up? Look at you, you’ve withered so much, you’re barely recognizable, and what’s the point? What could you possibly still hope-
Hey, come on now, not in front of other people!
IT: Oh, whoopsie!
You two are a riot! Well, that’s all we have time for, thank you so much for sharing a part of your lives with us, I hope we get to talk again soon!
Thanks for having us, sure, let’s talk again sometime.
IT: This was great and all, but you know, here’s hoping you don’t get the chance to talk to us again, haha!
Haha, alright then, thanks again and uh… good luck to each of you, I guess!
Thanks, have a good one!
