I didn’t sleep well last night after my encounter with Nico. It was just the last thing he said to me that gave me the creeps. What does he mean by letting me enjoy a few more weeks with Jade? What is he gonna do? Is he going to hurt Jade? Should I tell Jade about this? I’m really scared now…
I brewed some coffee and got to work on the blog. My boss will be happy to see that I came through with my promise. I gave Waylon’s 4 and half stars, however the location isn’t a nice area in BP but overall it’s a fun place for a drink after work. I don’t see it as a place to go party at on the weekends. It carters to an older crowd more than anything.
I tried to get ready for the day. Jade was still sleeping, so I tiptoed around only to trip and fall. I told Jade many times that we need to clean this place up but she kept telling me to use my magic. I’m not gonna do that when both of our arms and legs work perfectly fine. She made most of the mess anyway. My fall woke up Jade and she fussed at me a bit. I didn’t wanna fight and just kept quiet.
I got a text from Kirby asking me to meet her at The Perc for breakfast before heading to Drea’s. I told her that I could meet her in 20 minutes. She said that was fine, it was enough time for her as well.
“I’m glad you talked me into getting the cinnamon rolls. These are pretty good.”
“I could eat these all day long and never get tired of them.”
“You gonna review these too, Mimi?”
“Ha ha ha! I really should. Do you come here a lot?”
“Yeah when I’m doing some writing for The Port. I’m glad to be doing the blog now with you. It would be nice to get out of the office.”
“So you’ll still work there too?”
“Yeah there’s not much for me to cover anymore. They like Anna’s stuff better and the blog covers most of the entertainment stuff. I like entertainment a lot.”
“So the boss said we both write the reviews. What about the other stuff?”
“We both do everything. We’ll have different takes and opinions on things.”
“Oh okay. I have a good feeling about this. Us working together.”
“Me too but enjoy it while it lasts.”
“Why do you say that?”
“Two more bloggers will be join us but I think we will still be partnered up likes this. Team A and Team B.”
“Have I really been slacking that much?”
“One person running a news blog is too much. It needs to be more active. 3-5 posts per day, one person alone can’t do that. I guess boss lady didn’t tell ya that.”
“I guess she’s just easing ya in. But it’s gonna be fun. The two other bloggers will be 2 hot guys.”
“Oh, you’re taken huh?”
“Yeah. I have a girlfriend. But I do like guys too but I’m committed to my girlfriend.”
We both caught a cab to Drea’s for our first assignment. Kirby seems nice and I think we will get along well. I wished that I was told about the other changes about blog. I guess it won’t be so bad with extra help. I can’t keep it very active with me alone. Having 3 other bloggers could be a cool change.
The shop looked nice and neat. The selection was pretty nice. I could see myself shopping her time to time. They are having a sale and of course I took advantage of it. I love shopping for cute clothes anyway.
“What do you think about this shirt?”
“It’s kinda cute. But I think it’s better in yellow.”
“Seems a little bright.”
“I like bright colors. It reminds me of home.”
“Where are you from?”
“I was born in Konani Tides but raised here. I still call it home. I visit there twice a year.”
“Oh cool. I have family there. I’m from Star City.”
“Oh Ms. Hollywood!”
“Ha ha ha.”
“How do I look?”
“I like being comfortable.”
“I figure with you being from Star City you would like things more flashier and tight.”
“I do but I really like cat sweaters.”
“Me too. I think the outfit is cute on you. I’m not sure if I can pull that off.”
“Maybe in yellow?”
“I’m going on a date tomorrow night. I need a cute dress. Whatcha think about this?”
“It fits you nicely.”
“Nice and tight, right? It gotta be tight so he won’t notice my pancake booty. Ha ha.”
“It’s tight in the right areas ha ha ha. I don’t think you have a pancake booty.”
“Oh you checking out my booty?”
“Oh no! I wasn’t.. Sorry!”
“It’s okay Mimi. I like girls too.”
Kirby is really cool. We got to know each other as we shopped. I almost felt embarrassed when I was checking her out. Now I know that it wouldn’t bother her but she knows I’m with Jade. I felt comfortable with Kirby but not comfortable enough to tell her about Nico. I gotta figure out what am I going to do with him.
We went to go see a new horror movie that came out. It wasn’t assignment but we figure we could review it anyway. I wasn’t always given certain assignments, sometimes I reviewed whatever I wanted. Since this is a new movie, I would be asked to review it anyway. It was cool spending more time with Kirby.
“Don’t go in there! Why do they always do stupid stuff?”
“Cause they enjoy making us yell at the movie screen.”
“This movie could be solved in 5 minutes.”
“That wouldn’t be any fun.”
“Yeah but this mess is freakin’ ridiculous most of the time. She coulda still have her face if she didn’t go in that room.”
“Ha ha ha! Well someone needed to lose their face. It wasn’t called Faceless for no reason.”
At the end of the day, we headed to The Port and wrote our reviews together. Normally I blogged from home but it would be nice to blog together at the office. I wonder if I gotta start coming up here for now on.
I had a fun day and headed home only to be greeted by Nico. He’s really starting to creep me out now. He won’t leave me alone and now he’s stalking me.
“Can I get a kiss?”
“Go away! Why can’t you just leave me alone! You are being so creepy!”
“I missed you. I needed to see you again and see if you’re okay.”
“I don’t need you! Just go home and never come back!”
“I thought about you all day. I just wanna hold you.”
“No! Go fuck off! I don’t like you and I will never like you! You have issues!”
“Look here you stupid bitch! I’m not going anywhere and you need to get that through your thick skull! I’m trying to show you that you need me!”
“But I don’t fuckin’ need you!”
“The fuck you do, bitch! Now what you are going to do is invite me in.”
“I’m not doing that!”
“Yes you are! I’m gonna show you how much I care about you.”
“If you really cared about me then you wouldn’t force me to anything!”
“I don’t want to force you but you are being difficult!”
“Just go! I’m gonna call the police!”
“Don’t you dare. You will regret it if you do. Now just be a good little girl and invite me inside. It’s cold and I can warm you up.”
“No, Nico! Go home! Please!”
“Bitch! I am not going anywhere! Don’t make this more difficult! We can do this the easy way or the hard way. Your choice, Miyoko!”
“Don’t make me..”
No matter how hard I fought Nico, it just made him more persistent. Over the next few weeks he followed me everywhere. When Jade wasn’t home, he forced me to invite him inside for sex. It wasn’t long before Nico finally broke me down. He wasn’t gonna stop until I gave him what he wanted.
Usually it was just sex or sometimes he just wanted to cuddle. Then he started to take me out on actual dates. Like dinner and a movie. He seemed quite nice when I didn’t fight him but never enjoyed a second with him. I always felt sick to my stomach when I had to be around him.
I started to literally be sick suddenly. I was actually throwing up. I figure it was the stress from Nico. Jade had no clue what was going on. I tried to tell her but I was afraid. She’ll get mad at me or Nico will try to hurt her. He keeps telling me that the final days are near and I’m not sure what that means. I’m stressing out bad.. I’m really worried of what’s gonna happen.
But a natural instinct kicked in. This sickness isn’t from stress of Nico…
