Posing for His Fantasies

“Where did we ever get so much crap?” Camilla asked, laughing, as she hauled out yet another moving box.
“We’ve always had it,” Jason replied. “We’ve just never had anywhere to put all of it until now, except for storage.” He emptied the box he was working on, placing the final books on the bookshelf opposite the bed, and began to collapse it to make room for the next.
“Tell me about it. I think this one is from college. I never bothered opening it when we moved in with my folks; I just stuffed it in the basement. I wonder what’s in here.” She cut the packing tape open and unfolded the top.
“Ooh, mysterious treasures,” Jason grinned. He came up behind his wife and kissed her on the cheek as she started pulling things out of the box.
“I don’t think I’d call calculus homework ‘treasure’,” Camilla laughed. “I probably would call it mysterious, though.” She walked over to the trashcan by the door and dumped the notebook in after flipping through it briefly. The trashcan was already full again. She and Jason had gotten married right out of college, and Camilla’s parents had graciously let the newlyweds live with them for a year to save up enough money for a down payment on a house. They had separate apartments before getting married, and their leases ended shortly after the honeymoon, so they had thrown everything in boxes and piled it up in her parent’s basement without sorting through any of it. Now that they had their own home, they were taking the time to get rid of anything not worth keeping, and they were getting rid of a lot. It might have been smarter to throw it all out before hauling it across the country, but after a year of living with her parents, they were both desperate to have some privacy. Staying in the guest room was great for the checkbook, but it was terrible for romance.
