Montigo Extensions: Bruce-Lee, Update 2

Note: It’s been forever since I did a life update on BL. Since the last update, there’s been a change in the course of his update. Mainly because of Love For The Ladies turned towards a new direction. I’m trying my best to sync Bruce’s life with Borage’s life. The new name for Appaloosa Plains is Auburn Grove.


It was near the end of summer and about a month away before Lakey and I make our way to Newbrey to attend university. I can’t say I’m uber excited about it. Yeah I do want to take business courses in the hopes of running a night club, something Lakey doesn’t know about. I guess being a mechanical would be cool but music and late night scenes is more of my taste. I thought about sneaking in a music production course but I know Lakey would question it. I feel like I shouldn’t have to hide things from her. She knows how I love music, so maybe she won’t question it so. After all, she does plan on having a culinary course  for one of her classes.



I spent most of the evening chatting with my siblings, telling them about my college plans. I got a bunch of “about time” comment and playful teases about I should do all math course cause of my Asian descent. Over all they were pretty supportive of my decision although it was mainly Lakey’s. Tonight I chatted with my sister PC more. Of all over my siblings, she and I are the closest.

She sent me some photos of her daughter Ayana. She’s cute and looking more like her mom as each passing month. PC adores her but told me that she’s keeping a secret regarding Ayana’s father. All she told me was the father of her daughter doesn’t know he has a child. I got a feeling there’s more she’s not telling me. But I never try to pry. I figure she would tell me at some point. I often encourage her to tell him, it would be fair to Ayana and the father. Having both parents in her life is important. I never got the chance to have my mother in my life. But knowing how she was, I didn’t miss much.




Whenever thoughts of my mom crosses my mind, I’m reminded of the 2 sisters whom I haven’t met yet. The whole situation is just strange, I haven’t told Lakey about it yet. How do you explain that 2 of your sisters are also your nieces? I find it hard to look at their pictures that my dad sent some time ago. They both look like our mom so much.




The next morning I watched Lakey work on a new painting. She doesn’t mind me watching her, in fact I think she kinda likes it. Since moving to Auburn Grove, she seems more happy and relaxed. This town has a beautiful scenery and all but still, not my type of town to live in.

As much as I miss Star City, The Grove would be an ideal place to raise a family in. I do have thoughts about starting a family. I guess its natural, I’m in no rush by any means. I figure Lakey would be since she’s aging. But she wants to be stable, have a degree and a good job. I guess I could understand.




“You don’t mind if I watch?”

“Not at all, I think it’s cute.”

“What are you working on?”

“Something I’ve been craving.”


“Sushi. Too bad there isn’t any sushi places in town.”

“Sushi? Really? Ha ha. It doesn’t get any more stereotype than that.”

“Oh hush, Bruce. I’m just in the mood for some. I guess it’s one thing I miss about the city.”

“Yeah? Maybe Newbrey would have a nice sushi place.”

“I hope so. Not gonna work on that car today. After I finish this, we should go to Odessa Grove. It’s such a nice day and all.”

“I guess I could do that. I would need to work on my car skills. Is this your way of telling me to buzz off?”

“Ha ha ha, no silly. I figure you would being as much as you could. I wish you for to on top of your skills for good grades ya know. He he.”

“Ahh? Ha.. I guess your wish is my command.”




Not like I wanted to work on this car today, but she used the wish command on me unknowingly. In a way she’s right, I do need to brush up on my skills. I have a few mechanic courses along with my business and music production classes. I tried to filled up my schedule to not leave anytime to party. I might go overboard with it and Lakey won’t like that so much. I like how I can make Lakey happy and all, but maybe I should do things to make myself happy.




I worked on the car for an hour, I notice Lakey was done with her painting. I decided to get cleaned up and asked if she was ready to go to Odessa Park.

“You always smell so nice, BL. Have you been using my shower gel?”

“No.. As much as it smells pretty.. No I swear.”

“Ha ha okay, you always smell like fresh roses. It is a genie thing or something?”

“You could say, but anyway are you ready to head out?”

“Sure, let me go finish putting up my paint set and we can go. I heard today is the pie eating contest. I’m thinking of entering. It’s something that I never did before.”

“They had those all the time at the fest in Star City. I always won.”

“I didn’t go to the fest. My parents were always too busy to take me.”

“That sucks. We went all the time, mainly cause my dad was looking for ladies to hook up with.”




I haven’t been to this park since we moved here. I was usually at the bar where I work or at home locked away in my basement man cave. Lakey has been there usually after work at the farm with co workers for a little down. Lakey really does enjoy this small town living where everybody knows everybody.

My dad always told me to keep a lady happy and pleased but I’m pretty sure he means by a sexual nature. I did take his advice to heart with Lakey. But what at cost? Taking away my happiness just keep hers?I remain quiet as we drove to the park. Lakey sat in the passenger side happily, looking out the window, humming to herself. I like seeing her happy, so I’m trying to adjust living here. Maybe I’ll like this day at the park.




Our first stop was the pie eating contest. We were just in time for it start. I was surprise that Lakey was serious about the contest. She was always self cautious about what she ate. I guess maybe she’s getting comfortable or just trying to fit in. I figure I would join in since I always won these as a kid.

















I use to call myself the Pie King when I was 8. It seems like I was natural at these type of things. It didn’t stop my siblings from still competing against. Just had high hopes of finally beating me and they never did. These were fun times in my childhood.
















However there was always a downfall after these. The tummy ache from hell. Greta seems had a solution for these type of things. It was some nasty tasting witch brew that she makes up. It was the worst thing to drink but it gave has instant relief.




It my surprise, Lakey won. I see that I now have some completion.




But like always, stomach ache of regret…





“Let’s take a pic.”

“Like this?”


“No.. I got pie all over my face.”

“That’s why we should. No one is ever gonna believe you joined a pie eating contest.”

“I look silly, BL.”

“As do I. We’ll look silly together. It’s for memories.”

“Okay, it’s a fun day.”






















After taking a silly pic together, we decided to enjoy the rest of the day at the park. We played some horseshoes which I won at. Lakey was a good sport and didn’t mind that I didn’t let her win. We were having a great time as a couple for once. Lately our outings were one sided enjoyment. But for once, I’m having fun in The Grove.




“Wanna ride?”

“Do you know how to drive a tractor?”

“It’s like a car, right?”

“Oh dear..”

“Ha ha, kidding. I know how, I got to once when I was a teen. We had a class trip here and some of use got to drive a tractor.”

“Okay, I really hope you know what you’re doing.”

“You’ll be fine and have fun.”





If I’m gonna live in this hick town, then I might as well do what they do and drive a tractor. Hayrides were fun from what I remembered when we took a 4 day long class trip to Auburn Grove back when I was a junior in high school. PC and I got to go and we did have fun. Neither one of us could see ourselves living here. She got a good giggle when I told her that I moved here with Lakey. She teases me about it since I said I’ll never live here. Now look where I am. PC often mention if Lakey wanted a calm town to live in then move to where she is in Clover hill Bay. I have thoughts about it, it would be nice to live near family. We know no one here.




“Bruce! Slow down!”

“But I’m not going fast, it’s kinda slow.”

“I don’t feel so well. Can you please stop?”

“I can’t stop it here, I gotta ride it around the track.”

“Bruce! Please! I think I’m gonna throw up!”

“Okay.. hurry and hop off so they don’t notice.”




I made a quick stop, pretending that the tractor was having some issues. Lakey quickly hopped out and made a mad dash towards the restrooms. I didn’t think Lakey had motion sickness. After all we did eat a lot of pie an hour ago.




“That was just horrible.. I’m not gonna get use to this..”





“I’m sorry. Are you okay?”

“I’m fine, it’s not your fault.”

“Oh.. I just thought I made you sick.”

“Don’t be silly, we ate a bunch of pie.”


“The next time I have a crazy ideal like this, stop me.”

“Alright, I’ll keep that in mind.”




“I still feel bad though. Is there anything I can do to make you feel better?”

“Hmm.. maybe there’s one thing.”


“I wish for a little kiss. It will make my tummy all better.”

“Well I like that, I can do that.”

“You didn’t say it..”


“That cute thing you say when I say “wish”.”




“Your wish is my command.”




I wanted to try out some archery. I tried to convince Lakey to joined me but I notice how she was eyeing the peach trees. I smiled at her and said “Go ahead, I’ll be fine.” She smiled back and gave me a kiss on my cheek. “I’ll make you the best peach cobbler with them.” She said before making her way to the tree. Peach cobbler does sound pretty good. It’s been a while since I had some. Lois use to bake them all the time for dad and the others. She usually made 4 of them cause us genies could eat. I didn’t think Lakey was much of a cook but recently she has been trying to make good use of the kitchen.



“So how was the peach hunt?”

“It was great, I picked a few good ones. Now I just gotta google a good recipe.”

“You seem to taken an interest in cooking lately.”

“I love art and all but I was thinking of being a baker.”

“What’s with the change?”

“People love to eat, and I always like baking goodies with my mom. She’s a great cook. I could still do my art on the side. The Grove doesn’t seem to be much of an artsy type of town. It’s mainly farm life and food. I think a bakery would be great here. A cute little country bakery.”

“You had your heart set on bring art into this town. Didn’t they open an art center and dance studio?”

“Yeah, and I still plan on doing that. But wouldn’t a bakery be nice too?”

“Yeah, maybe you could have a little art studio on one side.”

“That’s a neat ideal. You’re so smart, BL.”

“I try.”



Suddenly Lakey set down her plate and excused her. She made another run towards the restroom like she’s been doing all day. I’m not sure of what’s going on but she says she’s fine. She has been acting different and now she has a change of plans of what she wants to do with her life.




A country bakery. I was hoping she would go for art, that way she’ll see this town isn’t so arty like she hoped. A bakery would keep her here for good. Now what do I do? I don’t want to stay here for the rest of my life..




“Are you sure you are okay? You keep making trips to the restroom. Do you want to go home now?”

“No, I’m fine.”

“It doesn’t seem like it.”

“I just had a little too much pie.”




“That’s crazy talk. There’s no such thing as too much pie.”





“Maybe not for a genie but for a human, we have our limits.”

“I guess, we can go home if you want to.”

“No, let’s stay. The day is almost over and I’m having fun.”

“Okay, would you like to dance for a little bit?”

“Yes, I would love that.”




It was near sundown and half of the visitors had left for home. It was just us on the dance floor which I didn’t mind. It was nice being just the 2 of us.




However my footwork wasn’t too fancy. My dad only taught me how to dance when a female is grinding her backside of your crotch. He often said the best dance a lady can do is twerk. It would be years before I notice that my dad is an idiot.




“Woah.. What are you doing?”

“You’ll see and you’ll like it.”








Lakey was feeling a little tired and I figure we should head home. We had a fun and eventful day although she made many questionable trips to the restroom. I’m not sure if I will continue to have as much fun as I did today later on. But as long as I have Lakey by my side, I’m happy.





I wanted to watch a show before heading to bed. Lakey was ready but knew I wanted to watch this. She came into the living room and sat next to me. With her legs crossed and with a sad tone in her voice, “We need to talk.” I wasn’t sure what does she want to talk about. By her tone I figure it wasn’t something good. She has been acting different recently. I turned down the volume on the TV and gave her my full attention.




“What’s going on?”

“I was thinking… Maybe we should enrolled in the community college in town.”

“But we already enrolled in Newbrey. Why the sudden change?”

“I think we should stick close to home..”

“But we already-“

“I know but we can get everything transfer here. I did some calling around.”

“I don’t understand why these sudden changes.”

“I can explain..”

“Please do.”




“We’re pregnant. Bruce? Did you hear me? We’re pregnant. We are going to have a baby. Bruce? Please say something? You’re scaring me..”

I was in a lost of words when she announced we are expecting a child. I sat there with my mouth open as I continue to hear the echo, “We’re pregnant.”. Why didn’t I put 2 and 2 together. She suddenly having craving, the pie contest, her running to the restroom all the time. Clear signs that she’s pregnant. Yes I wanted kids, but now? I’m not sure if I’m ready.

“Were gonna have a baby?”


“Yes.. I went to the doctor on Tuesday and found out. Nausea is starting to kick in. I’m 8 weeks along, we have an appointment for the first ultrasound on Monday.”

“That’s in 2 days.”

“I know it’s sudden. I wasn’t sure how to tell you. I was in denial cause I knew before having it confirmed by a doctor.”

“Wow.. I don’t know what to say.”

“Are you mad? I’m sorry…”




I wasn’t mad, I wasn’t happy, I was unsure of what to feel. It’s the same feeling my dad had when he learned my mom was having me. It took some time before my dad came around but I don’t wanna be like that with my first born. I want this kid to know that I love and care about them at the start. I didn’t answer her question and placed her on my lap, embracing her into a kiss. It’s the only way I could avoid answering. 

I had a million thoughts racing in my mind as I kissed her. For the first time ever, I’m not sure if I truly want to settle with Lakey and start a family in this town. I love her with all of my heart but I don’t feel like I can truly be myself with her. The pregnant news hit me like a tons of bricks. What do I do now?

Love For The Ladies: Bruce Lee -1

Here I am, appearing to be a happy child some time ago. I guess my childhood wasn’t too bad although my mother wasn’t really in my life.





She was more into my younger brother Mordecai’s life…







I was somewhat raised by my dad but more from his nanny and then girlfriend Lois Champagne. Although my dad had his moments where he decided to act like a parent. Most of the time he was out and about, making more of us. With all the siblings I had… I was never lonely.






The benefits of having a parent who doesn’t act like a parent was I got to go to my very first nightclub when I was only 8 years old. I watched my dad DJ that night and it’s what influenced me into DJing myself. That night was fun and surprisingly my dad wasn’t fired for allowing us to stay at the nightclub. I guess he didn’t have the heart to send us back or he was just too much of a idiot and not realizing having children at a nightclub wasn’t a good idea. Whichever, he didn’t mind that we were there.  My siblings and I hatched a plan to visit the club. We got dressed up and made our way to the club on our bikes.  Luna used her alien powers to allow us to get pass the bouncer. I didn’t feel bad about sneaking in but we were curious about our dad’s life. We didn’t see him as much at first. But we did like our dad’s nightlife.





My dad still took one of us to the club time to time. Mainly the boys, we wanted to show us how to pick up a lady and we need to know how even if we were still in diapers.






My dad sometimes remember we were just children and would do kid friendly stuff with us. We often went to the festivals in town. Eating contests were my thing. I usually won at those events. As often as we went, I thought my dad was being a parent. Honestly I think we only went so he could pick up ladies. However we still had fun. I had good memories.





Once my dad convinced me that Godzilla lived under my bed and only ate Asian kids.

I believed him. I couldn’t believe how silly I could be for believing him.






My teen years were fun. Good times. I remember a lot of good times..







Like the prank war we had against on our grandpa Liam. I’m not sure if he ever forgave us for that. The pranks we pulled on him were hilarious.






Although my mom wasn’t around, I had a motherly figure in my life. 





The news of Lois’ murder had shaken up my world a bit..





About a year before Lois’ death, I asked my high school sweetheart Lakey to be my wife. She gladly said yes and we were planning our wedding. Lakey hoped for a beach wedding and I wanted to give her anything she wanted. However just 3 months before our wedding, Lois was gunned down the night before her wedding with my dad. My dad was hurt, I was hurt. Lakey and I decided to put our wedding on hold for my dad as he mourns  He was about to marry his first love and having him attend a wedding just 3 months short after her death didn’t seem right. However… time had went on and we haven’t made plans to push the wedding.

Will a wedding ever happen?





Lakey and I settled down in Appaloosa Plains. Lakey wanted a simple life in a quiet town. The city of Starlight Shores never appealed to her. Although it was more of my pace, I gave Lakey her wish to live in a small quiet town. I am a genie after all. Your wish is my command.

We bought a nice size country house not too far from a small farm where Lakey works at. I wanted something more modern style like my dad but she wanted a country house. Your wish is my command..





Along working at the farm, Lakey sells her artwork on the side. She thought about getting a part time job at a local pet shop since she loves animals.  I always figure she would be more into the art world but I guess country life was more of her calling.





After some schooling in Starlights Shore years ago, I made use of my license and got a bartending job at a local dive bar. It’s a bit of a hole in bar but it’s the only bar in town. Although I learned to make tons of drinks, I find myself making the same drinks over and over again. Rum and coke, I swear is what all these small town folks drink along with a couple of wheat beers. Either I’m making a rum and coke or fetching a can of beer, not much of actual “bartending”. I guess this will have to do unless a miracle happens and Lakey wants to return to the city.





My dad opened up his own sweet ass nightclub. I’m filled with envy and joy as I stare at the photos of his club that he emailed to me. I wish I could open up my own spot somewhere. This wouldn’t be the right town for it but maybe if we lived somewhere else. My dad told me that there’s always a open spot for me to work as a bartender at his club if I were to move there. I often thought about it but Lakey likes her here. This was her dream. Your wish is my command..




During my week here, the regulars knew I wasn’t from here cause of my “flashy” clothes. I like to dress nice, I think I got it from my dad. My boss suggested I should invest in some flannel shirts and cowboy boots to “fit” it. I didn’t think my clothes would be a bothersome, it’s just clothes. I ignored my boss’ suggestion and worn what I usual wear. I already given up a lot of myself for Lakey’s sake. Let me at least wear what I wanna wear.




They have the audacity to talk about my clothes when I see people in town wearing shit like this. And my outfit bothers you so much? Everything on this woman offends all 5 of my senses. Sadly, she’s not the worst that I’ve seen…





Lakey drops in time to time. I’m happy to see her when she does, not cause she’s my girl. It’s cause I get to make something rather than a rum and coke. She loves fruity martinis and cocktail drinks. I finally get to make a actually drink when she drops in. And it’s always a plus serving a drink to a fine lady. I usually get “hags” is what would my dad would call them coming here. But it’s Appaloosa Plains, I expect nothing less.





Of course I like to show off and give Lakey a little show. I am my father’s son after all..





When it’s not Lakey ordering a “fancy” drink, sometimes I’ll get a traveler who doesn’t know any better about this town. I always enjoined in making specialty drinks and thought about creating my own drinks. But purpose would it serve? It’s not a rum and coke or a beer, so it’s unlikely to ever be served.





Lakey thinks it’s cool and all, being a bartender. However she wants me to do more as in really a job that pays better. I usually tend to this bar during the evenings and weekends. During the day, I have nothing to do and Lakey and I are starting to see less of me. I thought about being a personal trainer at the gym for a day job and just work at the dive bar on the weekends. Being a fireman interests, genies naturally have a love for fire. But Lakey feels that line of work is too dangerous. She often forgets about my genie occult and I’m immune to fire along with being immoral.  I figure I’ll go for the job at the gym for Lakey. Your wish is my command.





We recently got a home gym placed in the basement of our home. We spend time together..working out. We both like to work out and I love those tiny shorts Lakey wears when she works out. I always get a nice view of her whenever she’s jogging on the treadmill. Those shorts are amazing and we usually have another workout after our workout. It usually starts in the shower. I wanted to get pumped up before attempting to apply for a job at the gym.




I do have my own man cave in the basement that I usually keep lock. It’s cause I don’t want Lakey to see my DJ setup that I have up. Lakey dislikes anything that reminds her of the city. My DJ booth would remind her of a night club. Lakey doesn’t ask about my man cave and respect my privacy. 





The more I mess around with my gear, the better I get. I often daydream about DJing in my own club. I even have a name for it if I were to ever have a club, Wish. Yeah my dad had Magic but we’re are genies and all. His club Magic inspires me a lot. The more I check out the pics and watch video of my dad playing, the more I try to learn how to DJ. If only I could make Wish a dream come true. I guess dreaming about it will have to do. Lakey wouldn’t go for it, I just know. I just want to be like my dad, do what he does, live his life. Not meaning that I want to hook up with a bunch of ladies and have tons of babies but live like he does at night. Mixing drinks, mixing tracks, having a great time. I miss the city, the lights, the freedom to be me. I’m not cut out for small country living. It’s want Lakey wants… I love her.. I really do. Your wish is my command….




Giving up too much of myself did put a strain in my relationship with Lakey. We haven’t tried to move forward on getting our wedding together. Sometimes she mentions about it but I usually nod and not say much. i do let her know that I still love her. But tonight Lakey wanted to talk about something. I’m sure it was about the wedding.

“We should take the next step in our life.”

“You’re ready?”

“Yes BL, I think it’s time we think about our future.”

“I agree, we should..”

“Let’s attend school, together. I want a degree in Arts before I get settled with marriage and a family.”


“Why just oh? We talked about going to school before. It’s time to stop putting it off. I’m not getting any younger.”

“I thought you wanted to talk about marriage..”

“I know I wanted to get married sometime ago but I feel it’s best if we got our degrees first.”

“You wouldn’t have to worry about aging if we were married now. I was hoping we’ll get married and maybe move to a new Where my dad moved to is nice. I could have a job-“

“Bruce! We talked about this.. I like it here.”

“I know but-“




“What have you always told me?”

“Your wish is my command..”

“You’re so cute and you say that.”

“Yeah.. I guess school would be okay.. But we are in our late twenties.. I figure you would be worried about your eggs-“

“I got that taken care of.”


“I got some frozen. We’ll get babies. But I want a degree. The farm is nice but coming home smelling like it isn’t.  I want back into Arts, I would love to be a art teacher for the kids at the center that just opened up. Don’t you still wanna be a mechanic?”


“Well what?”

“Kinda but I had something in mind. Maybe I can go for a business degree.”

“Business? Why so?”

“Possibly having my own business or so.”

“Oh I know how you Montigo like opening something but I notice the trend of owning a nightclub.”

“Yeah it’s our thing.. But hey, when should we go?”




I feel slightly bad for not telling her what type of business I wanted. I guessing she’s trying my own mechanic shop. I always loved on working on cars back in high school. My dad always had some nice cars that he let me drive when I was in a teen. But over the years I gained interest in the club life. I could still be a mechanic during the week and do the whole nightclub during the weekend. But I think I’ll just be a personal trainer since this town has enough car shops. Maybe I could just own a gym along with a nightclub. I figure I can take some PE class as well.

“Fall semester. We can enroll online tonight. I guess you want to major in business?”

“Yeah and I can take some physical ed classes so well.”

“PE and business?”

“Maybe have my own gym?”

“Oh duh! Why didn’t I think about that.”

“It’s okay.”

“I’ll get us enrolled and after we finish school, we can talk about wedding plans.”

“Your wish is my command.”
