Montigo Extensions: Miyoko – Update 4

 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.”

“Um no…”

“I guess she’s just easing ya in. But it’s gonna be fun. The two other bloggers will be 2 hot guys.”

“Oh.. Cool.”

“Oh, you’re taken huh?”

“Yeah. I have a girlfriend. But I do like guys too but I’m committed to my girlfriend.”

“That’s cool.” 

 

 

 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?”

“Comfortable.”

“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?”

“Yeah!”

 

 

 “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.”

“True.”

 

 

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!”

“You wouldn’t…”

“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…

I’m pregnant….

Montigo Extensions: Miyoko – Update 3

 My weekend was super crazy between Jade and Nico. Monday evening I had to meet up with my boss at The Port cause she wanted to speak to me about something important.

 

 

 

 It made me little nervous cause she sounded very serious in the email. I usually don’t meet up with her in person unless its something bad. I know I haven’t been updating the blog as often as I should. Maybe she’s gonna fire me? I just been slacking so bad at my blogging job for The Port. I was supposed to do a review about Waylon’s since it’s under new management. But my night was filled with drama and I didn’t get to check out the bar.

 

 

 “Hello Miyoko. How you been?”

“Pretty good.”

“That’s good cause I was starting to get a little worried. The blog has been a little quiet. Didn’t visit Waylon’s like you promised?”

“Kinda but the night kinda got crazy.”

“Hmm, we need something from you ASAP.”

“I know but I will check it out tonight.. Alone.”

“Good. I do wanna speak to you about something.”

“Am I in trouble?”

“No but I think you could use some help.”

 

 

 “Help? What do you mean?”

“I think if you had a partner, things would be easier. The blog will stay more active.”

“So someone would help me with the blog and visit places with me?”

“Yes. Kirby Wise will be your partner. I think you two will get along well. Kirby’s first assignment is to review the new clothing shop in town called, Drea’s tomorrow. I will give you Kirby’s number and you 2 can plan out the visit.”

“Who will write the review?”

“Both. It would be nice to read things from 2 different people.”

“Oh okay. I guess it would be fun.”

“I hope so. I need to go finish up and head home. You take care.”

“You too.”

 

 

 I headed to Waylon’s like promised. I figure I should let Jade know where I am so she won’t start any drama with me. But I wasn’t sure if I should tell her cause she might show up. I decided to call and tell her anyway.

 

 

 

 “Jade, I’m gonna be at Waylon’s tonight. I really gonna do a review on this place. My boss is riding my ass about it. I thought I should let you know.”

“Okay. My shift is almost over. I’ll head up there. I need a drink.”

“Oh? Well-“

“You don’t want me to come?”

“You can but Jade.. This review-

“I know, I know. I’ll stay out of your hair. I won’t stay long anyway.”

“Okay. See ya then!”

 

 

 

 I spent some time at the bar alone before Jade showing. So far it has been fun. The bartenders were friendly, the drinks were good and the bathrooms were even clean. I had fun mingling and getting to know new people. It has a nice vibe, friendly atmosphere and laid back. It’s more drawn to the older crowd and it’s probably why it’s so laid back. Jade walked in as I was doing karaoke.

She smiled at and decided to play shuffleboard with one of her co workers. I just hope Jade will stay calm. 

 

 

However it wasn’t long before got into a fight with some girl. I’m not sure what happen but I really don’t need this. I tried to stay out of this by sneaking off outside for a bit.

 

 

 

 “Jade! Seriously!”

 

 

 

 “Why Jade?”

“That bitch said something about my hair. She had it coming.”

“Who cares what she thinks about your hair. Did you see her outfit? She doesn’t know what’s good. I can’t have you starting fights over stupid shit!”

“I’m sorry. But I had to put her back in her place. It’s all good now.”

“Really?”

“Yeah, let’s do some karaoke and then I’ll be outta here. Early shift tomorrow anyway.”

“Okay.”

 

 

 We sang a few songs before Jade headed home. She promised to behave for the rest of the time and she. I stayed for another couple of hours at the bar. I enjoyed my time there and have a very good review to write about it in the morning. I think now having a partner for these type of things is gonna be kinda fun, ya know. I hope Kirby is a fun person to hang out with.

 

 

 I caught a cab home and didn’t notice I was being followed. I’ve seen that guy at the bar, he stood mostly in the corner watching me all night. I didn’t think much of it until I got home and there he was.

 

 

 

He said a few things to me but I couldn’t make  out what he was saying. I found myself too scare to make another step. A millions thoughts raced through my mind. What do I do? Do I call the police? Do I call my sister or Jade? Why can’t I just run?

 

 

 

 But I felt another unwanted presence near by..

 

 

 

——-

 

 

 “What are you doing here asshole!”

“Just following the pretty lady.”

“Go fuck off! That pretty lady is mine, creep!”

“Well then. Maybe you would like to share her?”

“Are you fuckin’ insane?!”

“Yes. It wouldn’t be the first time you shared her. Right?”

“Who the fuck are you?!”

“You’ll know soon enough.”

“What?!”

 

 

——

 

 

 “Are you trying to get yourself hurt?!”

“I didn’t do anything wrong!”

“If I wasn’t here, who know what that creepy vamp would done to you!”

“I can take care of myself!”

“No you can’t! You need me and tonight proves it. You got stalkers following you and you need me to kick their asses.”

 

 

 “Stalkers huh? You’re a stalker! You live across town and you show up from out of no where! You’re stalking me!”

“I’m not stalking you. I’m looking out you.  I’m protecting you. You are special to me and mine.”

“You are stalking me and I’m not yours! I told you that I’m with Jade!”

 

 

 “I told you that you and her are done. It’s you and me now. You know that you need me. Tonight made that clear. I can protect you. Jade can’t protect you. Jade will put you in danger. She’s fuckin’ nuts!”

“You’re fuckin’ nuts!”

“You don’t mean that. Let me show you how much I care about you.”

“Keep your hands off of me!”

“Mimi, don’t be like that. Let me love you.”

“No Nico! Just go away please!”

 

 

 “I could never leave you. I care about you. You and I belong together.”

“Nico!”

“Kiss me.”

“Get off-“

 

 

 “You really shouldn’t try to fight me. It turns me on.”

“You’re a creep! Just stay away from or I’m gonna call the police!”

“You wouldn’t do that, baby. In time you will see that you and I belong together. I guess I could let you enjoy a few more weeks with Jade. Then it will be you and me.”

“What are you talking about?”

“You’ll see, baby.”

 

 

 I have a bad feeling in my stomach….

 

Montigo Extensions: MiKaia – Update 4

Christmas was a week away and the gym in the apartment complex had finally opened up after being remodeled. I felt that I needed to looked my best since landing a weekly gig at Dynasty. Mimi and Jade often joined me which was kinda fun. Jade for once wasn’t a total crazy bitch like usual.

Mimi and Jade seemed to be doing well for that past few weeks. I just hope the calm lasts for a while cause its been peaceful. But I rather have Mimi be with someone else than Jade. I still believe Jade isn’t right for her. I keep my opinions to myself, I don’t wanna ignite a fire.

 

 

 During my working out, I started to feel a little off. I felt this unpleasant feeling in my stomach, something that I haven’t felt since I was a kid. I quickly raced towards the apartment, trying to hold down whatever is coming up from my stomach. I didn’t make it, the ride in the elevator made the queasiness worse. I headed to the bathroom and searched for Jade’s upset stomach meds. Before I was able to take a dosage, I felt the queasiness once again. This time I was able to make it to the toilet.

I headed towards the sink for the medicine and to brush my tooth. I didn’t think much of this but it’s odd. Genies don’t get sick..

 

 I changed out of my workout clothes and relaxed in the living room. I pulled out my tablet so I could Skype with Mason. We do this everyday around the same time. I enjoy chatting with him and getting closer to him. It’s nice, I never got this close to guy before.

 

 

 I’ve been singing in the lounge area at Dynasty for a few weeks now. It’s a wonderful feeling, singing in front of a crowd, doing something that I am very passionate about. Sometimes when I am on stage, I pretend that I’m performing a concert on a big stage. I use to do the same when I was a child.

Daddy use to take me the club he worked at on karaoke nights and let me sing. It was the only time I had an audience. My dad was almost fired for bringing his kids to the club but after a while, the owner was okay with it as long as we left before 11 pm.  Daddy taking me to karaoke night was our little special time although my older sisters usually came along.

 

 

 

 It’s almost silly to still play pretend in my head while singing at the lounge. But becoming a famous singer is another one of my dreams. I’m content just being a lounge singer, even its temporary. I still give it all my.

 

 

 

 Over the last 2 weeks, the crowd has gotten larger since I began to sing there. I don’t think the crowd has ever been this large when the regular was singing. For the most part, the dance club area had the most people. They are starting to come upstairs just to watch me. But honestly I’m not sure if I’m pulling a crowd cause of my talent or my irresistibly. 

 

 

 

 I’m cheered after each song, during breaks I’m approached by others who tell me how much they loved my singing. Maybe it is my talent that is bringing the crowd and it’s possible that my irresistibly may be helping a little. I try not to think about that as I perform for the night.  I’m just glad to be singing in front a crowd.

If only daddy could see me now. He would be proud.

 

 

 

 During one of my breaks, I got to meet Tiara once again. I haven’t seen her since the audition. She seemed happy to speak with me on this night.

“MiKaia, it’s nice to see you again.”

“It’s nice to see you again.”

“I’ve been wanting to speak to you. It’s kinda important.”

“Oh?”

“Don’t worry, you’re not in trouble or anything like that.”

 

 

 

 “That’s a relief.”

“We notice you have been bringing a large crowd lately. It’s quiet impressive given the little promoting that has been done. Again we are sorry about that.”

“It’s okay.”

“You are very talented and we had been very impressed lately. I know this gig was supposed to be temporary until Maya returns but we would love to have you permanently. Maya has never brought in a crowd like you have.”

“Are you serious?”

“Yes. We like Maya but lately she has been bit of a diva. She hasn’t been so pleasant to be around.”

“Oh wow I wasn’t expecting this but I would love to do this full time.”

 

 

 “I’m glad to hear that. Our busier nights were usually on Friday and Saturday nights but since you, business is really picking up. “

“I’m glad to help out but what about Maya when she returns?”

“She’ll be singing on the other nights since our other singer will be moving soon.”

“What nights would be my?”

“Thursday, Friday and Saturday, those are our prime nights. Maya will have Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. We plan to have karaoke night on Wednesdays soon.”

“Karaoke night? That sounds like a lot of fun. I use to go to the karaoke nights back in Star City.”

“I remember you mentioning that is your hometown. Would you mind being the host on those nights? People seem to like you a lot. We been getting positive feedback about you.”

“I would love that!”

“That’s great to hear that. I will call you tomorrow with more details.”

 

 

My break was almost over but I felt a little rumbling in my stomach. I made a mad dash towards the restroom, trying to get there as quickly as possible. I couldn’t worth to throw up all over my gown after making an impression on one of the club owners. 

 

 

 It’s been a few days since I last had toilet prayers. I know it’s not something that I ate. I shouldn’t be getting sick like this. It’s uncommon for genies however I’m not a full blooded genie, my mother is something. I just wish I knew what she was. Maybe what ever she is, might be the reason why I’m allowed to feel illness.

 

 

But then again…. There is only other reason why a genie could have illness. I’m not trying to think about that right now..

 

 

 

 The show must go on…

 

 

 

 The morning was different than my usual. I tried to act normal as possible as I got ready for the day. I washed my face, brushed my teeth and watched the timer. In 3 minutes I will know the reason of my sudden illness. These 3 minutes were the longest 3 minutes ever. Then finally the timer goes off.

 

 

 It’s positive. I couldn’t believe it. I stood there frozen, staring at the positive pregnancy. I should have known instantly, being a symbol of fertility but I guess I was too high in the cloud of denial. 

 

 

 

I’m going to be a mother… How am I going to tell Mason this? We met barely a month ago and now we are expecting a baby. Things were starting to look up for me. I now have a full time gig at the lounge and now I’m going to have a baby? Why wasn’t I careful?

 

 

 

 After staring at my phone for 2 hours, I finally got the courage to call Mason. I wonder how he would take the news however he had unexpected news for me.

“Hi Mason, I hope it’s not too early for me to calling you.”

“I’m glad that you called cause I need to talk to you.”

“Really? You missed me, huh?”

“Well..”

“Well what?”

“I shoulda been honest with you when we first met. There’s something that I need to get off my chest.”

“Okay, I’m not liking where this conversation is going.”

“I really like you Kaia. You’re a great person but if we met during a different time, I would love to be with you. But you see.. I kinda have a girlfriend…”

“You kinda have a what?! Either you do or you don’t! Which is it, Mason?!”

“My girlfriend and I were on a break.. We kinda broke up for a little bit cause we were having issues. But now we wanna work things out. I found out that I’m gonna be a dad. I’m really sorry MiKaia. I shouldn’t have led you on. I hope we can still be friends.”

“Mason…”

“Yes?”

“You’re an asshole! Never talk to me again!”

“I’m really sorry! I feel like a-“

 

 

 I hung up on Mason. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. This whole time I thought maybe this could be something real. I crawled up in the corner and cried my eyes out. I’m hurt, confused and feel like a fool. How could I be so foolish. No guy really wants to be with me! They are afraid to have freaky purple babies one day. I cried for hours it seemed like but I knew I couldn’t stay in my room and cry.

 

 

I was even more hurt that Mason only choose to work things out with his girlfriend or whatever cause she’s pregnant. Would things be any different if I told him I was pregnant too? I decided that I wasn’t going to tell him about the pregnancy.  This baby doesn’t need to know his or hers father. I would never see him again, he’ll never but I then realize his best friend Nico works at the studio and seems to be hanging out with Mimi a lot. Nico will take notice, and he’ll tell Mason. I’ll eventually have to tell Mason one day…

Montigo Extensions: MiKaia – Update 3

 Soon it was morning, I found myself up and early than usual. Probably cause I was excited to have breakfast with Mason before he returns Star City. However I will be kinda sad once he leave. Bridgeport and Starlight Bay are so far apart. I finally meet a guy who isn’t put off by my odd appearance and he lives thousands miles away. Just my luck….

 

 

 I seem to have a string of bad luck as I was getting ready to meet up with Mason. I dropped my toothbrush in the sink and it got stuck. I smashed my finger in my dresser drawer and to top it all off, I tripped as I was exiting the elevator. My dad often joked about me having my grandma’s grace, which is none at all. Sometimes I can be a klutz. I’m glad Mason wasn’t around….

 

 

 

 “So fuckin’ embarrassing…”

 

 

 

 I decided to drive to the Perc which I later regret as I attempting to pull out of the parking lot. It snowed overnight and the parking lot was still covered with snow. I was a little late because of the minor delay in traffic. The streets were still blanketed with snow and a lot of dumbasses don’t know how to drive. I remember why I caught a cab often..

 

 

 Mason was a little late too, so I didn’t feel bad anymore. We chatted a bit, getting to know each other. He told me that he’s a Nulnact, a special type of witch you could say. It was a shock to me, I figure he was just a normal human male but I should have had figure with his odd hair color. 

Mason asked a little about Jade, which kinda worries me. Was he still hung up her since she once dated him? He assure me that he was done with her but wanted to know if she’s been doing okay. He confessed that they were once engage but he broke it off when he expect she’s been cheating on him with her neighbor.

According to the previously day, Jade confessed to sleeping with Nico. I did notice that Mason seemed a bit bummed out. He mention about confronting Nico when he returned. Nico admitted it but claimed that Jade told him that she and Mason were done. Mason said that he was hurt that Nico still slept with her. They were suppose to be the best of friends and all.  Mason didn’t want to spend the rest of the time talking about his past relationship with Jade. He quickly changed the subject and continued to learn about each other.

 

 

 It was almost time for Mason to catch the shuttle bus to the airport in Jericho. The bus station was next to The Perc and I walked him over.  I only known him for a short time and I’m already starting to miss him…

 

 

 “I guess this is goodbye for now.”

“Yeah, I guess so too. It was nice getting to know you, Mason.”

“I feel the same. If ya ever wanna warm up during the winter, you can swing by my neck of the woods.”

“I might take you up on that offer. I do miss the warm winters in Star City.”

“I wanna tell you something.”

“Like what?”

“Come closer.”

“Um..okay.”

 

 

 

—-

 

 

 His last kiss was sweet and gentle, it made my cheeks warm and red. I was almost weak in the knees. The last thing I needed was to fall flat on my face again. I never met a guy who made me feel like this. Could this turn into something real? I thought to myself as I watched Mason board the shuttle. Mason turned around one last time to wave and smile at me. I smiled and waved back.

I hope this can be turned into something real…

 

 

Monday rolled around and it was back to business as usual. I returned to the Calamore Studios to continue working on my album.

 

 

 

I was feeling like I was cloud nice today, I had a fun weekend and met a nice guy. I felt like nothing could rain on my parade. I brought in some nice emotions into my recording session. Others took notice and was impressed. Today was probably the best recording session that I had in months. 

 

 

 

 I just happen to be recording a love song that I wrote, Purple Skies. I had difficulties trying to sound like I was really in love. I figure singing a love song would be easy since being a love genie.  However when you never actually been in love, you can’t fake the feeling regardless if you’re a genie of love. But today, I feel like I had a taste of what love could be.

 

 

 I know that my funds are starting to get real low and I’m not much studio time I can buy. There’s been a price rise and I think this might be my last session until I can gather enough funds to buy more time. I’m giving it my all today.

 

 

 

Afterwards I was joined by my friend Tom in the hallway.  I could tell by the look in his face that he was impressed.

“What’s gotten into you? You sounded on point today. The emotion was real.”

“Ohh.. I met a guy this weekend.”

“Aww Kaia has a boyfriend haha.”

“Oh please.. Things are early. It sucks that he lives in my hometown, Star City.”

“Long distance, that gotta suck. I hope he treats you well cause I like what I heard today.”

“I just wish it was enough to impress, Louis.”

 

 

 

 “Louis doesn’t care about talent apparently. He just signed some girl just cause she’s hot. She sounds like a pig stuck in a tunnel. I just wished he signed you on. You got something there.”

“I gotta have an angle according to him. If I was an alien or fake being one then he could work with me.”

“Honestly its his loss. Maybe you’ll be found by someone else.”

“I wish..”

“Well I can help with that.”

“What do you mean?”

“Dynasty is looking for a lounge singer, the regular will be on tour for 2 months. They need someone to fill her spot until then. I spoke with Tiara and gave her a good word about you. She would love if you audition.” 

 

 

 

 “Oh wow thanks. Well I could use the money honestly. I don’t think I can pay for anymore time. I knew at some point I would need to get a job.”

“I think this would be great for you. Music producer often visit Dynasty while they are in town. Maybe one with good sense would discover you.”

“That would be nice.. But I’m not going to hold my breath.”

“Kaia, you know your sound is awesome and you got some real talent. Just believe in yourself a little more.”

“I try..”

 

 

 

 “So you will audition?”

“Yeah, it wouldn’t hurt to try.”

“I know you’ll be picked. Trust me, they know talent when they hear it. They don’t have their head up their ass like my boss.”

“I hope I will be good enough. It’s kinda been my dream to a lounge singer at Dynasty.”

“Your dream is about to be a reality. Trust me.”

“Thanks. Thanks for being so supportive. You’re a true friend.”

 

 

 

 The next day I headed to Dynasty to audition. I was nervous about it but remembered Tom’s kind words. I met up with Tiara and the others in the lounge area. I though about Mason as I sang and was hired on the spot. I was told that I was a tall glass of ice cold lemonade on a summer day. Refreshing. I was never told that I was refreshing, but they said I was the best that came in.

I texted Tom telling him that I got it. He knew I had it and congratulated me. I sent Mason telling him the good news and he was happy for me. I was happy but did remember that this was only temporary. This gig will only last for 2 months before I need to find something real. I just hope to be discovered within these 2 months. 

 

 

 

 I came home and found myself staring at a picture of my mom. Mimi wanted to hang up but I was on the fence about it. Why keep a photo of someone whom you don’t remember and who had walked away from you? But as I stared at the photo longer, I could see the love in her eyes was she smiled at Mordecai. I started to get the feeling that my mom didn’t walk away by choice. What happen to my mother?

 

 

 

 I spent hours searching about my mother. I checked the archives on Starlight Bay’s news sites to see if there were abductions around the time I was a baby. I really didn’t find anything going around that time. There was abduction of a woman about a year after my mother went missing. The woman was found barely alive but pulled through. I hate to think if something awful had happen to my mother.

I wonder why my dad never look into filing a missing person report. But my dad said his baby mamas tend to just leave him with the kids. He didn’t think much of it. Daddy didn’t think much of anything.. just only with the thing between his legs.

 

 

 

 The only info that I had about my mother was her name. I finally found something. She has a Facepage account and I was able to look at her profile. She lives in Storybrook and she married a guy named Aric Mason and they had a couple of kids. I couldn’t believe my eyes, here she is alive and well with a new family. They looked so happy in the pictures. 

I started to get angry the more I browse through her profile. It’s almost like she forgot about Morde, Mimi and I. I see nothing hints that she wonders about us. I slammed my laptop close and stood up. I was about to go yank the photo of her in the living but I stopped myself. Mimi likes the photo, it makes her happy. If remove it, Mimi might have a melt down.  For Mimi’s sake I’ll leave the photo up and not tell her about me finding our mother’s Facepage profile. But I’m still curious about what’s the other part of me.. Only my mother knows..

 

 

Montigo Extensions: Bruce Lee – Update 6

 It was Christmas morning and I was looking forwarded into spend time with my new family. Lakey went to go see her family 2 days before, she didn’t bother telling me bye. She just packed her things, got into her car and leave. I was a bit hurt by it.

 

 

 

 I invited Linza over so she didn’t have to spend this day alone. Her plans to go see her family fell through and I figure it was the right thing to do.. I do feel a little nervous about having her over, honestly. We really haven’t seen each other since the night we took things too far. But we can’t pretend that night didn’t happen. We gotta face each other at some point.

 

 

 “Thanks for inviting me over. I was just gonna stuff my face with ice cream and watch Christmas movies all day.”

“We can’t have you doing that. I think you’ll get along with them.. Leda seems nice, so I figure the rest would be the same.”

“I hope so. But Bruce.. Look up.”

“Why?”

“Look at what we are standing under.”

“Oh…that.”

“You know what that means. You gotta kiss me. It’s the Christmas the rules ya know.”

“Ha ha ha ha.”

 

 

 “So..”

“Well if it’s a kiss you want. Then a kiss you shall get.”

“Aww how cute.”

“You have soft hands.”

“Thanks. I’ve been trying out this new lo-“

 

 

———

 

 Linza and I got started on the cooking. It wouldn’t be long before the others arrive. Cooking with her was fun, although she kept teasing me about my cooking skills. I didn’t know much about cooking since I usually just used my magic. But when I was a teen, Lois tried to teach me a few times. I never had the best luck at it. I managed to burn water but over the times I got better.

 

 

 A few hours later, there was a knock on the door. I knew it was them, I greeted my new family and introduce Linza to them.

 

 

 

I didn’t get a chance to say much to Echo and Xavier. Leda’s mother Fraine made Echo and Xavier march to the kitchen table to write their essays. Apparently they got in trouble for misbehaving during the road trip.

“This is your fault. You’re a butt face.”

“Was not, you little shrimp. You kept putting your feet on my side!”

“My feet were on my side! You kept putting yours in my space!”

“Whatever, just know that this war is not over.”

“I’m gonna tell mom.”

“You’re such a tattle telling twerp!”

“Mommmmmm! Echo called me a tattle telling twerp!”

 

 

 As soon as everyone was settled in, we all mingle and got to know each other. I was surprised that Leda’s daughter, Valeri had quickly taken a liking towards me. She walked towards me and reached her little arms up. I picked her up and she tells me hi. So far she’s a sweet little girl but she kinda reminds me of Luna.

 

 

 “What are doing?!”

“Nothing! Mind your business!”

“You better not be setting up another one of your traps! For fucks sake, Echo. We are guest. Can you stop your shit for one day?!”

“I wasn’t doing anything!”

“That’s bull Echo! You’re always up to something!”

“But I wasn’t this time! I swear!”

“Well just so you know… I’m watching you, sister.”

“Well you’re gonna be bored if you think you’ll catch me being sneaky.”

 

 

Dinner was ready and we all gathered into the kitchen to eat together.

 

 

 It was nice, it kinda reminded me of all the dinners I had back when I was a kid. Sitting down together, talking about anything in general and some playful teasing. I was having a great time with my family.

 

 

 Soon after dinner, we all opened our gifts together. Xavier was a bit impatient during dinner. He just wanted to open his gifts like any other child. It made me smile as he and Valeri opened their gifts. I can’t wait until my son’s first Christmas. 

 

 

After finished opening our gifts, we all went outside to play in the snow.

 

 

 

 “These winters here always remind me of my home. However they aren’t as cold but they are still nice. I want to thank you again for inviting us.”

“You’re welcome, Fraine. It’s nice having you all here. Forgive if I sound rude but what are you?”

“Adonact.”

“Cool but can I ask you something?”

“You want to know why I stole your father’s sample. I guess I should explain myself. I always been interest of the Navox since learning about them when I came to this planet. Finding love here would be difficult because of who I am but a Navox would be easier to pursuit. They love all things, right? However coming across one was impossible. Your kind is new, your kind is rare. But when I came across your father in the database, I struck gold. Why not just have Navox children? I am unlikely to come across a Navox anyways. I have 3 wonderful children from your father’s sample. I was shocked when Leda told me she found you. I can finally meet a Navox, I can finally meet the donor. Please tell me that your father is single.”

“Well yeah but I’m not sure if you’ll get a kick with dating a comatose male.”

“I see. I figure I should at least ask. He has brothers? Single brothers?” 

“Ha ha ha, yeah my dad has brothers. Single.. I dunno honestly. But I know one is married.”

 

 

 “Linza is a nice lady. I see why you’re falling in love with her.”

“What? No.. No.. I’m not.. I’m engaged to Lakey.. We’re gonna have a baby and I love her. Linza is just my best friend. Nothing more.. nothing less.”

“Bruce, You cannot kid me. I know love when I see it. But I am confused of you saying that you love Lakey. How can you love a woman whom you do not like? Clearly this “love” for Lakey isn’t the same love you have for Linza. You stay cause you feel it is the right thing to do. But Bruce, do not deny your heart for what it really wants.”

“Look Fraine, I dunno where you’re getting these ideas from but I really do love Lakey. I stay cause I love her. We are in a rough patch but we will work things out.”

“Bruce, you should not lie to yourself. This rough patch is just the start of the downfall. Things will not improve. You can save yourself heart break by following your heart. You are falling for Linza. You’re a Navox, you know love, you know I speak the truth. Linza is falling in love with you too.”

“But Fraine… I just can’t leave Lakey. I know if we work out things, find a middle ground, we can last. I do like Linza but I can’t be with her.”

“Bruce, you already have one foot out of the door. You know this to be true. It’s written all over your face. I see it whenever you look at Linza.”

“Wha-what? You know about what we did?”

“It’s obvious. But Bruce I must warn you. If you prolong things, the outcome will be dire. So please, follow your heart. Now.”

 

 

We all came in for a little bit to have come hot cocoa and chat a little. I was a little quiet cause I was thinking about what Fraine me. To be honest… there’s some truth to it. And that scares me.

 

 

 

 It’s true, I know love and I know it well. I know the love I have for Lakey isn’t the same as the love I have for Linza. To be honest, I was never in love with Lakey although I do love her. It was the type of love you would have for a long time friend. I stayed with Lakey cause I thought maybe I would eventually fall in love with her. 

I admire Leda and Sylar’s relationship. I can see they are in love with each other. Sylar seems okay but honestly I’m kinda nervous about him. I mean from what I know, he’s covered with tats, owns a bike, has a rock band called Skinny White Boy. He said his goal in life is to be a rock star and believes his band is the next big thing. However the one good quality is that he has a real job, he’s a fire fighter but often loot from the fire victims homes.

Leda must see some good in him at least cause she’s in love with him and the feeling is mutual. That should matter, right? 

 

 

But yeah… I am falling for Linza. We spend a lot of time together.. Lakey has been so distant with me and that brought me closer to Linza.

 

 

 

 But should I really follow my heart now?

“Hey Bruce.. Long time, no see. You remember me right? I hope you didn’t think you saw the last of me.”
