Montigo Extensions: Bruce-Lee – Update 3

 It’s been a few months since I last spoke to you all. There’s been a few changes since then. Since learning about Lakey’s pregnancy, I decided it was best to enrolled into the community college in town. I’m working full time at the dive bar.

Although, Lakey rather I work somewhere with better benefits. I told her I would look but I haven’t. The bar owner works with my school schedule just so he could keep me. Word got around about my drink mixing skills, it brings business. My boss notice an increase of female visitors. They often come in to flirt and chat with me. My boss jokes about my irresistible aura, how it’s bringing all these females. He has no clue that it’s true. My aura does attract females. I often chat with them about me growing up in Star City, then they started to request “fancier” drinks since knowing where I’m from. They are impressed with a city boy and would love to have a moment of feeling like a classy lady from Star City. I’m now making up martinis, stocking up on wine and party cocktails.

Honestly my boss wasn’t thrill about the drink type request but it was bringing in females. And when females come, men will too. It wasn’t long until business was booming. Ladies order appletinis, men order glasses of whiskey, my boss no longer cared… However Lakey did.. She doesn’t like the idea of females being flirty with me but that comes with the job. Flirt with the bartender to get a free drink.

I like my job at the bar, it keeps my mind off of things. It’s been a week since I was told about my dad falling into a coma. Its hard on me cause he’s all I got, he’s the only parent that I known. The only parent who actually loved and cared about me… At least Lakey has been supportive.

 

 

My day started early, my first class of the day started at 8 AM. I made my coffee like usual, I figure I should make enough for Lakey but I keep forgetting about the baby. I made her some organic tea which she enjoys, it helps with nausea and all. The pregnancy is going well and she isn’t as sick as she was earlier. I really haven’t thought much about the baby to be honest. I want to be happy about he or she, but I’m not sure if I’m ready. My dad wasn’t ready when I was born. I’m afraid that I won’t be ready either. Lakey is excited and all she does is talk about the baby..

 

 

 “Thanks for the tea, honey. You didn’t have to make me any.”

“I know but I’m just being a good boyfriend.”

“You’re a great boyfriend and you’re gonna be a great daddy.”

“Yeah…”

“Don’t be modest, you know it’s true. We really haven’t talked about baby names.”

“You wanna talk about names now?”

 

 

 “Why not? This baby is coming in May and before you know.. It’s May!”

“I know.. But I still think we got time before we can start thinking about names.”

“What’s with you lately? Whenever I mention about the baby, you seem like you don’t wanna talk about it. Is there something wrong?”

“No..it’s just.. I got a lot on my mind.”

 

 

 “Oh.. I can understand. Your dad.. I’m really sorry to hear about him. I was hoping maybe talking about the baby would cheer you up a bit. Your dad is going to wake up, you know that.”

“I don’t know.. We been through this before with my sister Mimi. She was in a coma for 7 years, she isn’t the same person when she woke up. That’s what I’m really afraid of when he wakes up. He might not be the same man who I know…”

“Oh sweetie.. I do remember about your sister. I think it was different in her case, she was really young and her brain was still developing. I know people who suffer a traumatic injury will have issues with memory. You could help him remember who the man he was.”

“It’s different with genies.. We are immortal but I can still lose my dad if he wakes up as a different man. I’ll grief the dad that I once known…”

“Oh.. I have faith that your dad will still be your dad. I hope you’ll have faith too..”

“I’m trying…” 

 

 

I had 45 minutes before I needed to head to school. I checked my email to see if there’s been any change with my dad. Sadly there was nothing new but I got an email from my sister Luna. I haven’t heard from her in ages. She’s doing well and telling me how she’s in the program in Arcadia. I knew she wasn’t much of a fan of earth so it was no surprise when I read her email. However I was surprised of how she ended her email.

 

 

 “Hey BL,

I know its been forever since I last chatted with ya but just letting you know that I’m in the colony program in Arcadia since the one in Lunar L. got shut down. I’m just settling in and its pretty nice. I’m not alone like I would hope. Lilah was approved for some insane reason, she was housed with me along with Dia, Toshi and Toshi’s girlfriend. Oh and Toshi is a daddy too. The kid is cute but annoying. Not as annoying as Lilah and Dia. I swear if I had a rocket, I would launch them into the sun together.

But anyway, I’m taking your advice you gave me back when we were teens about joining the science field. You know how I felt about it. It’s such an alien stereotype but honestly I have interest in geology and meteorology. You always known that.. I’m gonna do that. Studying rocks and the atmosphere. I still hope a meteor lands on our old science teacher. My first day at the lab starts in a couple of days. I just wanna say thanks for encouraging me into going for this. I think my life has meaning now. I miss you all back on earth…even our dad.. I know he was never my favorite person but I could never wish a coma on him.. Please keep me in the loop about him. I care…about all of you..

PS: You might have a strange visitor coming your way. Don’t be like dad, keep your dick in your pants. She’s one of us! Things would be kinda awkward if you don’t…

Luna.”

 

 

I wasn’t sure what the end of Luna’s email means. She was never direct about certain things. I didn’t much of it and headed to school.

 

 

 

I only had a couple of classes that day. My last classes ended a little bit after 2 PM. It was lunchtime and I figure I should go have lunch with Lakey somewhere. She’s been cooped up in the house alone a lot since I work and go to school. I don’t see her much which makes her upset. However since going to school here, I made a new friend who I have a few classes with. Her name is Linza, she’s from Sundale but only moved here to care for a sick great-aunt who recently passed. I keep her company as she griefs her lost. Lakey isn’t a fan of me hanging out with Linza a lot but she’s my study buddy though. Plus Linza and I have something in common, we’re going through a rough patch..

 

 

 “Trying to run off I see.”

“I’m getting a bit hungry. I gotta get to the food ya know.”

“Oh you genies and food. I hope Lakey is a good cook.”

“She does okay.”

“Speaking of food, wanna get lunch at Twin Lakes?”

“Well I was gonna have lunch with Lakey today.”

“Oh..Today is half price on steak and eggs dinners but I guess you better have lunch with your woman.”

 

 

 “Half priced steak you say?”

“Yep.”

“You know how I love steak. Now my mouth is watering for steak.”

“Text your lady and tell her to meet us.”

“Lakey is on an organic diet for the baby. There’s nothing she can eat there.”

“That sucks. Maybe another time?”

“I’m sure Lakey won’t mind if I have lunch with a friend..”

“Okay, cool!”

 

 

I sent Lakey saying I was having lunch with a friend, she said it was okay and she already had lunch with one of her friends an hour ago. I told Linza that Lakey was okay with it and we headed towards our favorite diner.

 

 

 

 “So whatcha gonna get this time, Lin?”

“Hmm.. I’m thinking of the baby bella mushroom and spinach omelet. It has romano and parmesan cheese in it too.”

“Ooh, sounds fancy.”

“I am fancy, ha ha ha!”

“I’m getting something with steak of course. Oh and I want some fries, apple pie and a shake too. I wonder if they have some good cheesecake.”

“Geeze man, how does your lady feed you?”

“I got magic food, ha ha.”

 

 

 “I know you’re taking all business courses but you never mention about your goal. I’m kinda curious if you don’t mind me asking.”

“Well BL, I originally wanted to know about the world of business. I wanted to get into marketing like my biological mother. She thinks I have what it takes for the world of marketing. However my one of my dads think I should be a doctor like him ha ha ha. But I’m rethinking my goal now.” 

“Why so? Did your doctor dad get to you?”

“No. Since my great-aunt’s passing, I’ve come into some money. I wanna be my own boss.. Have my own business.”

“Oh really? Like what?”

“A night club.”

“Seriously?”

 

 

 “I know it sounds silly and I won’t be as rich as my doctor dad or my VP marketing mother but my other dad was once a successful night club owner. He was content with his career choice, he loved it, he enjoyed. My doctor dad isn’t too thrill with it but my club owner dad’s choice of making a living but he did well. Doctor dad was always busy with his work, so my daddy decided to party but he was a good boy. He stayed faithful to doctor dad.”

“It sounds like fun and I’m curious why you want a night club.”

“Like I said, he had a successful club in Star City. You heard of The Edge, right?”

“Yeah, my dad use to DJ there. One of your dads was the owner? Whoa.. It’s a small world.”

“Oh yeah, daddy loved to party. When his granddad passed, he used the money to started the club. It’s where he met doctor dad at. They fell in love and a house in Sundale. Later they asked their close friend to be a surrogate mommy. My dads wanted a baby and my mom’s career was too important to stop for motherhood. However she wanted her legacy to carry on. So here I am, it’s a win-win. The dads got a baby, my mom’s legacy will live on. And I want to carry on my dad’s legacy. I wanna buy back his night club. He sold it cause he wanted to retire.”

“Oh now I understand. You wanna learn how to manage it before buying it back into your family. Gotcha. I really love that you’re doing that.”

 

 

 “I haven’t told my parents yet. I hope they’ll like the idea too and be supportive too. But I loved going clubbing at The Edge back when I lived in the Valley county. I lived in Sundale but partied in Star City on the weekends. I spent most of my twenties living it up there. What are your goals?”

“Well… I want to start up my own night club too. I love to bartend and I’m starting to like DJing. I kinda wanna be like my dad. Its his dream to own a night club, he likes to drink and party. I like to do the same. I always looked up to my dad as a kid. I feel if I own a night club, he’ll be proud of me.”

“I’m sure your dad is already proud of you. You’re an awesome guy.”

“Yeah? I’m not sure about that…sometimes. I know my dad would be all supportive about me owning a club but it’s Lakey. She hates she hates the idea. She thinks my business management courses are about me owning a gym but it’s not.”

“Oh..wow.. You know at some point you’re gonna have to tell her your plans.”

“I know but I just don’t know how or when. She doesn’t know about my passion for DJing. I keep it a secret from her, she doesn’t like anything that reminds her of the city. It’s reasons why we are here.”

“She doesn’t know about your about DJing either? It’s not good to have secrets in yourself relationship.”

 

 

 “I know.. But I know she won’t support it. I love music, I love dancing, I love partying, I just love the night life. That’s who am I, that’s the only life I know. I come from a family of party animals, my grandmother was once a stripper. Me living here in the small town is kinda depressing. I just don’t feel like I can be myself here.”

“Sounds like you can’t be yourself in your relationship. And honestly… I don’t think you’re happy. You really don’t talk about the baby. I also notice how you don’t smile much either.”

“I love Lakey. I love my unborn baby.”

“But are you happy?”

“Well… I know I’ll be happy once I hold my child..”

“Bruce, you didn’t answer my question. Are you happy?”

“Generally, yes. As with Lakey… I’m not sure..”

“You’re not sure? Hmm..”

“….. I got a lot on my mind. I told you about my dad. It’s making me depressed.. It makes me unsure about things.”

“Well if you say so..”

 

 

 

 “Lunch was nice like always. We should do this again soon. I like hanging out with you, Bruce.”

“I had fun too, Lin. We should but I’ll be honest.. Lakey is getting a little jealous. So maybe not so much?”

“I figured.. There’s no rules saying she can’t be my friend too. All three of us need to hang out. If she gets to know me more, then she might like me.”

“Maybe, but I’ll see ya later.”

“Okay, take care Bruce.”

“You too, Lin.”

 

 

 I did enjoy my lunch with Linza which carried on for 2 hours. I enjoy getting to know her and liked how she has the same goal as me. But Linza made me think about things. Am I not happy with Lakey? She is right about me not being able to be myself with Lakey. I won’t be happy if I can’t be myself with her. Keeping secrets isn’t a good thing either but I’m just not sure what am I’m gonna do. I love her, yes but am I happy being with her? Honestly, I just don’t know.

 

 

Naturally Lakey wasn’t too happy when I returned. I just had a two hour lunch and that leaves me just an hour left with Lakey before I gotta go to work.

“Where were you? I thought you were going out for lunch after class?”

“I did but I guess I lost track of time. I’m sorry.”

“Bruce, I never really get to see you that much anymore. What’s going on with you?”

“Nothing. I am sorry. I promised I’ll come home sooner tomorrow.”

“I miss you. I just wish that we could spend a little more time together.”

“I know. My shift doesn’t start ’til 6. I got an hour to do anything with you.”

“An hour isn’t enough… You seem so distant lately and you don’t like talking about the baby. It makes me think there’s something wrong.”

 

 

 

 “I’m so sorry. It’s just with school and work.. my mind is clouded.. Now with my dad in a coma… I’m gonna make it up to you.”

“Sometimes I think that you don’t want this baby…”

“What? Of course I want this baby.. I’m still wrapping my mind around the idea of fatherhood.”

“So you do love this baby?”

“Yes, of course I love the baby.”

“Maybe tomorrow we can check out that cute baby shop?”

“Yeah, sure. Whatever you wanna do.”

 

 

 It was getting close for me to head to the bar. I dressed and ready. Lakey was still a little mopey and followed me into our bedroom. I know she doesn’t want me to go in but I really don’t have a choice with a baby on the way.

“Bruce?”

“Yeah?”

“How long is your shift for tonight?”

“I’m closing again.”

“So until 2 AM?”

“Yeah..”

“You know that I really don’t like this job. I miss when we go to bed together. Can’t you get a part time job? My parents are willing to help us with money.”

“No. This is my family, I’m going to take care of us. Besides, I got some money saved up. We will be fine.”

“But Bruce..”

“I know you don’t like it but its paying our bills at least. I won’t be doing this forever.”

“I guess you’re right..”

 

 

 “I got this weekend off, we can stay in and spend time together.”

“I know but I something in the paper about a job that I think you might like. It’s flexible, pays well and we can spend lots of time together. I’m sure they can work around your schooling.”

“Lakey, I like my job.”

“Just hear me out, please?”

“Okay.”

“I know how you like to make drinks but what about coffee and tea? There’s an opening at The Perc.”

“You want me to be a barista?”

“Yeah. So wanna give it a try?”

“I’ll think about it..”

 

 

 “Oh thank you! Being a barista would be much better than a bartender. I love the tea there, we can see each other all the time.”

“Yeah… We could…”

“So you’re gonna apply then?”

“I’ll visit The Perc after class.”

“This means so much to me.”

“Yeah, I know.”

 

 

My shift started around happy hour. I did think about Lakey’s job request at The Perc and honestly I’m not interested in becoming a barista. I love what I do here and I wish she could understand that but it’s whatever.

 

 

 

 “Hey BL. What’s up?”

“Not much, what can I get for ya?”

“Hmm, what’s tonight special?”

“We have 5 dollar martinis tonight.”

“Dive bar martinis? How fancy.”

“Well I know how fancy you are, ha ha ha.”

“Yeah? I think I’ll have a dirty martini.”

“I think I can dirty it up for ya.”

 

 I fixed a drink for Linza which she liked. She chatted with me for a bit before I had other customers to attend to. It was only a Monday night and I didn’t think we would have many customers. However it was Martini Monday and all the martini lovers would be heading this way I guess.

 

 

 

 

 

 I saw a girl walked into the bar. She was very pretty but she wasn’t a familiar face. I could tell she wasn’t from here.. She’s kinda out of this world if you know what I mean. Obviously she was of alien descent, like my sister Bora Bora she had human facial features but had flesh colored skin. She greeted me with a warm smile as she stood in front of the bar. I did sense something different about her too. I felt a magical aura that surrounded. A Navox aura. Honestly I never met another Navox who wasn’t related to me.

 

 

 

 “Can I help ya?”

“What’s your name?”

“Excuse me?”

“Oh I’m sorry. Maybe I should tell you my name. It’s Leda.”

“Why do you wanna know my name? That’s such an odd request.”

“I like to know the name of the person who will be serving my drinks.”

“It’s Bruce-Lee. My dad thought it was clever to name me after the kung fu master, Bruce Lee cause I’m part Asian. He felt it will make me know kung fu. My dad is an idiot but I love him. So can I get you a drink?”

“That’s kinda funny. Hmm what do you recommend?”

“Well most pretty ladies like yourself would like a martini. It’s tonight’s special, Martini Monday.”

“He he he! That’s cute. You think you can make me a appletini?”

“Sure.”

 

 

 “So you have a good relationship with you, right?”

“Well yeah, I guess I do.”

“He’s a great guy, yeah?”

“Yeah, sure. Why do you ask?”

“You strike me as a man with a good family values. Strong relations with your father I can see.”

“Yeah you can say that. But seriously, why do you wanna know this?”

“I’m just making conversation. I didn’t catch your last name.”

“What’s with all the questions? Who are you?”

“Can I have my drink?”

“Uh..yeah.”

 

 

 

 I was starting to get a little weirded out by this girl who’s asking me these personal questions. I wonder who she was really and why she wanna know these things. She wouldn’t say why but I made her a drink and hope she’ll leave but she wouldn’t.

 

 

 “Wow, that drink was pretty good. Can you make me another one?”

“Yeah, you wanna start a tab?”

“Oh no, I just have cash. Have you been doing this long?”

“A few months, I learned from my dad.”

“I see he taught you well.”

“Yeah he did. So another appletini?”

“Nah, surprise me.”

 

 

 I made her a few more drinks during the night. She didn’t hang around the bar area much when various men start buying her drinks. She was flirty with the men but kept them all bay. She was the life of the party at the bar. She got others to sing and dance. I can tell she’s a party girl, she was really liven up the place with her good energy. I just wondered who she was.

Linza stayed for the rest of the night, we chatted when I wasn’t serving drinks but I kept thinking about the strange alien genie girl.

 

 

The night was over for me. My boss didn’t make me stay for the clean up and the inventory check. I was pretty glad about that since I was pretty tired and all. As I headed for the front door of my house, all I could think about was slipping into my warm bed. But suddenly I heard a noise behind me.

 

 

 

 “Hello Bruce-Lee!”

“Leda?”

“Oh cool you remembered my name!”

 

 

 

 “How did you find where I live? Did I follow me? Who the hell are you?”

“Please don’t be frightened by me.”

“Seriously! Who are you?!”

“I’m Leda. I’m your sister.”

“Huh?”

“I’m sorry for acting weird but I needed to make sure that you’re my brother.”

“You’re my sister?”

“Yes, we share the same father.”

“I don’t recall having an extra half alien and genie sister. In fact only one of my alien siblings has genie powers.”

“Well I’m the second one then.”

“I think you should go cause you’re really creeping me out…”

 

 

 

 “Please, brother. Let me explain things.”

“Okay, you got three minutes.”

“My mother came to earth to start a new life. She a job at a cryobank, she worked in the lab. One day she was checking the database and came across a donor she found interesting. Well she stole the sample impregnated herself with it. And I was born. The donor is your dad, Borage Montigo.”

“Oh of course.. He did tell me about his first job… A spank bank donor…”

“Yeah, my mother got fired once they notice a sample went missing. Plus there was video evidence of her taking it. But my mother wanted a Navox child, it’s why she took it.”

“How did you find me?”

“Actually I was passing through town and my sensor went off. I got a sense that a blood related was near by. You see, I’m searching for our father. My boyfriend asked me to marry him and I want my father to give me away at my wedding. I always wanted to know him since I was a little girl.”

 

 

 “My dad…our dad won’t be walking anyone down the aisle anything soon.”

“What do you mean? Did something happen to him?”

“Yes, there was a car wreck… He slipped into a coma. I’m sorry.”

“Oh.. That’s awful..”

“Yeah.. I was thinking about spending Christmas with him this years. Plans had changed.”

“I bet. Where does our dad live? I’ve been searching for about a year. I couldn’t find anything about him other than he once lived in Riverview. It’s where I live with my fiancé Sylar and our daughter Valerii. She just turned 2.”

“Yeah dad grew up there but left for Star City when he turned 21.”

“Do you have any children?”

“My first is on the way.”

“Oh how nice!”

 

 

 “Would you like to come in for some tea? We can get to know each other. I can tell you all about dad and show you some pics.”

“Maybe a later time. It’s late and I know you’re sleepy.”

“I guess you are right. How long will you be in town?”

“A day, I need to get back home to my family. I’m sure my mom is driving Sy crazy by now.”

“Ha ha ha. Well I can meet you somewhere in the morning if you like?”

“I would love that.”

“How about the bakery? Sticky Stuff, it has the best cinnamon rolls in town.”

“I love Sticky Stuff! We have one in Riverview too. Sure, I can meet you there around?”

“Is 11:30 okay?”

“Yes!”

“Great. I’ll see you then.”

“Yep. It was nice meeting you, brother.”

“You too, sister.”

 

 

And just like that she was gone in a blinding light. I do remember Luna taking off like that often. Then it got me thinking about Luna’s email. She said a visitor was coming my way and she was one of us. Oh god! She meant Leda! I wonder how did she know this was going to happen?

 

 

 

I entered the room as quietly as I could, I knew Lakey would be sleeping. I didn’t want to wake her, she looked so peaceful. I laid in bed wide awake, thinking about Leda. I knew my dad was a donor so I shouldn’t be surprise when someone claims to be a sibling of mine. I’m pretty sure there were some children made with his kind donations. I am curious of how many children that my dad fathered is out there?

    LEDA!!! ❤ 😀 Poor BL, Lakey really just seems oblivious to everything, he really needs to be honest with her even if it's going to be difficult to swallow cause things are just not going to get better! I'm curious how many egg babies Borage has too, lol.

      BTW, what’s Leda’s maiden name?
      BL shouldn’t keep Lakey in the dark like that cause things won’t end well if he keeps on going with it.
      Those egg babies are gonna start popping out of the woodwork hehe

    I’m curious to see how many egg babies come out of the woodwork too. They seem to be popping up everywhere. Hehe.

    BL and Lakey seem to be stuck in such a rut. She keeps pushing him and he isn’t being upfront with her which makes her nag him even more. It’s just one of those vicious cycles. :/
    He needs tell her how he feels and she needs to try and be more supportive of his dreams, because neither seems very happy right now.

      Yep communication is the key but he’s something BL was never taught from his dad :/

    Poor BL and Lakey.
