MOD POST [15 Sep 2005|09:14am]

There's a rumour around that LJ BOSSES are checking out all the journals, mainly to see that celebrities are not being insulted or shown in a wrong light.
So PLEASE PUT DISCLAIMERS ON YOUR CHARACTERS JOURNALS!!!!, games have been closed if one or two journals don't have these,

Tuesday,late morning,Kate's home [01 Sep 2005|10:39am]

Painting wasn't that hard for me, it was easy...easier than working in a hot laudry room all day. I put the paint brush down to walk out on the porch. I dig in my pocket and take out a pack of smokes and light one. I take a deep drag and exhale. It's raining cat's and dogs, but i love the smell of rain...the earthiness of it...it brings back memories. I stick my hand out into some of it and use it to slick my hair back a bit. I sigh as a few wisps of blondish brown hair fly back into my eyes. I didn't bother to move them. I finish the cigg and step back inside, checking out the job i had done so far for there living room. Pretty damn good. I could feel a light shine of sweat forming on my arms and forehead, mingling with stray drops of paint on my skin. I thought staying here would be a bad idea, but so far it's the best decision i've made in a long time. But i've grown use to being let down, so i wasn't going to be content just yet. Things never stay this good for too long.

Monday early evening Tom's place [30 Aug 2005|04:41pm]

Now I'm officially here. I live with Tom. Tom parks the car on the drive way and I can't stop smiling. This is where I belong with him. I'm his and he's mine. I'm so happy I could burst into singing, but that might make Tom throw me out of his house. So I think I won't sing to him.
Now it's just a matter of carrying my stuff in and my life with Tom will properly start.

Tuesday,morning, my shop [29 Aug 2005|11:44am]

It had been a while since i had talked to Jordana. Our little late night rendevous was still in my head. I could barely concentrate on working...my thought would always switch back to her. I let my hair down from it's usual pony tail position and comb my fingers through it, looking out the window. It was pouring down outside..good thing i put my bike underneath the little porch of my shop. I had a lot of calls and fixed most of the problems on site...people were impressed by my skills. I shuffle some paper work on my desk and sign off on a few things, looking out the window occasionally.

"She isn't come Rosario..you were a fling okay..nothing more." I sigh, taking my glasses off to rub my eyes. I flick off my lamp and sit back in my office listening to the rain drop down on the roof. The darkness soothed me as i leaned back in my seat. No way a girl like that would be interested in someone like me..a drunken, stupid fling..that's all.

Monday early evening in the bookstore [26 Aug 2005|10:53am]

Fab has been in my mind all day. I had a wonderful time with him. We are becoming very close and I like that. He's sweet and kind and very very sexy. He's a perfect boyfriend after the last one I had. It's nice to think about him and think the future too. I feel so much better because I know him.
But I've had other things to do too besides think of him. I just sold a few books to a group of girls. It's so fun to see that children read books still. These girls were really curious and asked a lot of questions, I'm sure some of them will come back again.
I watch the time and realize it's soon time to close the store. I need to go shopping for food, but I'll wait if late customers will show up and of course Fab. He did say he will see me later.

Monday- Late Afternoon - Record Store [22 Aug 2005|01:36am]

Butterflies in my stomach as I opened the door to the record store, walked towards the front, and looked around for an employee or a manager who worked there to let them know I was here. Looking around a bit in the store and said "Hello?"

Waiting for someone to say something before I did anything else and thought the record store looked pretty nice and decent looking. I noticed someone coming my way, stepped back a little, and waited for the person to say something. Hoped it was someone who worked at the record store and I put my hand on my hip and the other hand resting down on my side.

Monday late afternoon in the arcade [21 Aug 2005|07:33pm]

I was pretty sick for a while and mom was making a big fuss about it. I manage to convince not to call Greg. It was just a bad case of cold. I guess the school ending had something to do with it. After the pressure my body just let go and I got the cold.
But now I'm back working in the arcade. Amy's upstairs doing some paper work so I'm in charge for a while. I'm so happy to be working again, I've missed the people, the noise and Amy of course. We haven't had a chance to talk much today, but it's early I'm sure I have chance to talk to her.
I'm going to mingle a while and meet some people, there's some new faces here today.

Monday Afternoon - The Record Shop [18 Aug 2005|07:40pm]

After returning to conciousness, I grabbed the keys to her truck and rushed from that house. I couldn't be in there. Not even with Jordana there to help. I whispered some lame excuse, pushing her arms away from me and bolting.

I knew I had to get my mind off of this situation. She couldn't be gone. Because if you loved someone that much, you'd know if they had left you. I still felt her. So she was still alive.

I went to the shop, knowing it may take my mind off of it for a few hours, but upon reaching it I couldn't even go in. So I took a seat on the plastic chair outside, lighting up a cigarette. Before I knew it I was onto a whole new pack, tears still cascading from my eyes. I looked and felt like a mess.

But chain-smoking must be the cure to all worrying. Or atleast some sort of aid, because I was feeling the tiniest fraction of calmer.

Monday afternoon in the diner [18 Aug 2005|07:40pm]

This is my first proper work day in the diner. I've been working as a busboy and a waiter. Walking around with the coffee pot, filling cups and taking orders. This is a good job, I'm meeting people and making money, so it's perfect for me.
I've been decorating the apartment a bit, just cleaning and washing. I'll buy some stuff once I get my first pay check.
But first I have to work and work. But it's fun since I have a job I like.

Monday late morning my apartment [18 Aug 2005|07:31pm]

I wake up when the sun shines directly into my eyes. Immediately I feel Fab's arm around me and when I open my eyes I see his beautiful face in front of me.
He is still asleep and I don't mind. I'm going to make us some breakfast and serve it to him in bed. Carefully I lift his arm up and slide off the bed. I lift the covers on him and quietly walk into the kitchen.
I make some sandwiches and a fruit salad. I put them on the tray with coffee and orange juice. Then I'm ready to g o back to the bedroom.
Slowly I open the door and step inside.

Monday Around Noon [18 Aug 2005|03:25am]

I'm actually out. Gasp. I'm trying for the life of me to -get out- like Karl told me, and how I want to . . . What's the point of living if I was just going to clamber up in my room all day. I called Karl on his cell a few times, but. . . he was out this morning. Busy. . . I clear my throat a little of a slight burning sensation as I move down the streets of Athena, taking in a deep breath of the fresh air that is sorta thick with rain threatening to fall.

I had wanted to meet up with my wayward boyfriend for lunch out, or something, but for now? I'm having fun just wandering. . . so much more welcoming than just laying about on the couch by myself. My jeans are worn around my hips, just a bit too loose.. . and my hair? A bloody mess on my head. I like it that way, though.

A few stores are visited here and there. . . nothing realy amazing just yet.

Monday Morning -Tom's place [14 Aug 2005|11:38am]

I wake up and he's still here.. hes still in my arms and it wasnt a dream. Our bodies are sticky against eachothers from the hot summer night, dispite the air conditioning. I kiss his neck and his shoulder then reach around to his lips, waking him up with kisses. Plans had kinda fallen through with my suprise on sunday, but it would be here and ready today. Probably already. I smile as his eyes open. "Good Morning Lover"

Monday Morning in the Park [14 Aug 2005|11:15am]

Too bad I couldn't spend the night with Eric. We had so much fun at the club, but I promised dad I'd be home and so Eric tool me home. It's always hard to say goodbye to him, I just wished I could be with him all the time.

I see the closed-sign on his repair shop door and sit on the bench. I don't have to go to work until later today so I was thinking of running a bit and the park is a perfect place to do that. Well, it's a good place to keep an eye of Eric's shop too. I lean back on the bench, I'll go for that run in a minute.

Finally... [11 Aug 2005|09:23pm]

Bloody Christ! Just when I thought things were going to settle down and become relatively normal for me, my stepmother up and leaves my father, a big fight breaks out, and I have to go back home to make sure my father doesn't get taken for all he has by that bitch he married. I never did like her, but I never was allowed much say in the matter. I could say I told you so, but I'll just let the whole damned thing drop.

I had to postpone opening up the pub until I made my return. After I rest for a day or two, then I should be able to go ahead with the grand opening.

I sighed and stepped outside, taking a nice, long breath of the cool night air. I start walking, deciding I don't care where I end up, as long as the jaunt is relaxing..

Duty calls ........Monday,morning, my house [06 Aug 2005|07:12pm]

After getting things straight last night i stand out of the bed and yawn. I left Olivia on the couch last night, god i love her. I toss some clothes on and go out to the mail box. I flick through the mail.

"Bills...no i do not want a subscription to Et weekly..." I can't breath, i can't move. A letter...with the united states marines seal on it? I bust it open. I scan over the letter.

Unites states marines:

Dear Sergeant Rodriguez:

We regret to inform you that you are beckoned for the call of duty yet again. We know your time is up but once a marine, always a marine. A special mission has been asked of you, briefing will be given upon your arrival. This mission is very dangerous and very delicate....we NEED YOU Rodriguez. Enclosed is a ticket to home base. We hope to see you shortly.

After reading the letter I stagger on to the porch clutching my chest. My breathing is short, raspy..my mouth has gone dry. Olivia...

I walk quickly into the house and pack a few things. She doesn't need to know why..just that im going. I couldn't stand to see the heart break in her eyes. I write out a quick note.


I have to go...i know it seems crazy but i got called back into duty. They need me baby...i can't let my country down. I wont let my country down. You wont understand it..or why i chose to leave like a thief in the night..hell i don't. I said i'd never leave you...and i'm not...this only goodbye for a while. I love you.

After scribbling the note i place it on my pillow, tears leaking from my eyes. I kiss the side of her cheek softly and she stirs. Her cute nose wrinkling up slightly. I kiss the side of her cheek.

"I lose..." I whisper and kiss her again before grabbing my bags, calling a cab and catching the designated flight. Goodbye Athena...goodbye Olivia...hello war.
