Tango Inferno: 2.10 – Pre Party

Dinner went surprisingly well given my visiting cousins are bit screwy. I guess when they are hungry they have a little more sense. They spent more time eating than talking. I enjoy listening to Kensi playing on the piano but tried not to watch to too hard fearing Janiya might get jealous. However Janiya didn’t seem to notice at all and kept her eyes on Borage as he ate. Now I was starting to get jealous.

She smiled an him and I wasn’t sure if she was trying to flirt with him quietly but he didn’t take notice. He’s like Niro, genies love food and can’t be bothered no matter how pretty you be. You can’t pull a hungry genie away from their plate. I get that he’s irresistible and all but c’mon, Janiya, that’s my cousin.

 

 

There was a another surprise at the lounge, Tequila and Martini’s brother Ghetto Life was there. Who knew he was there. It’s crazy how some of our family is dropping in here tonight. Turns out that GL moved into town not too long ago just as my aunt Lei did. It’s wonderful hearing that some of the Montigos are returning to LP. Tequila wanted to catch with her younger brother which I thought it was nice. I guess their side of the family is close after all.

 

 

“What am I looking at?”

“Just wait for it.”

“What am I waiting for? Every time you say that, it’s always something disgusting and very unladylike.”

 

 

“Just trust on me this bro.”

“See, when you say I know I cannot trust you.”

“I think I know what that is.”

“Shh, random chick! Stay out of this!”

“I don’t wish to watch anymore of this dear sister.”

“Don’t be a pussy, just keep watching.”

 

 

“What on heavens was that! That was disgusted! I knew I cannot trust you! You are very unladylike!”

 

 

“It’s just afterbirth bro, it’s a natural thing. Amaretto had another baby. It’s girl named Chardonnay.” 

 

 

“Chardonnay like the wine?”

“Yep.”

“It’s a classy wine, but not a proper name for a child. It’s bad enough she named the first one Champagne. Why can’t no one is this family give their children proper names? Aunt Zinnia named hers well why must we continue on our mother’s terrible child naming?”

“If you hate your name so much why don’t you change it?”

“Because that would be rude to change the name that mother and my father have given me.”

“Then stop bitching.”

 

 

“Here’s a picture of a white woman with flowers.”

“Okay, I guess that is nice.”

“Would you bone her?”

“Well no.”

“You’re gay.”

“That doesn’t make me a homosexual because I do not wish to have sexual relations with a lady base on a photo.”

“I would bone her if I had a dick.”

“That is shameful.”

 

 

“Anyway homo, here’s a pic of the new baby.”

“Oh she is adorable. She’s a doll. I can’t wait until I have one of my own.”

“Two men can’t make babies.”

“Shut up Tequila. I have a girlfriend.”

“With a dick?”

“She is a female.”

 

 

“Right, post opt or pre opt? You don’t have to deny that your undying love for a long haired muscular male named Johnny! Is he sexy? How big is dick? Are you a top or a bottom? I bet you’re a power bottom. You look like you like taking it in the ass by Johnny and his huge cock.”

 

 

“For that last time dear sister, my girlfriend is a female and her name is Emmy! I am not a homosexual and never was! Just because I am the way I am does not mean I am a homosexual! If you stop acting like a cunt for 5 seconds maybe I’ll invite you over so you could meet her!”

 

 

“You called me a cunt! You must love me! I thought you hated me this whole time!”

“What? I never hated you dear sister. You mad me so mad tonight, you made me call you a cunt.”

“I liked it, you call me that more often.. I hated being called “dear sister.”

“This family has some issues.”

 

 

“Hey GL, what are you doing here?”

“I heard this was a family owned club so I thought I would give this place a visit.”

“No that’s not what I mean.” 

“Oh. I live here now. I moved here to be with my girlfriend Emmy.”

“Your girlfriend? I didn’t know you had one here.”

“We were dating for about 8 months.”

 

 

“8 months?! When were going to tell you that you had a girlfriend! I tell you everything! You’re suppose to tell me everything too!”

“To be honest dear sister, I wasn’t so sure about Emmy at first. She just found out she was pregnant when we first spoke but the father of her unborn child didn’t want to have anything to do with her. I fell in love with Emmy and she convince me to come stay with her and her newborn daughter Crystal. It’s been quite lovely. I love it here.”

“So you’re with a girl who has a baby?”

“Well yes. Emmy has her faults but she’s a wonderful lady and I love her and her daughter.”

 

 

“I kinda like it here too. I’m not sure if I wanna go back to Sunlit Tides.”

“You’re thinking of moving as well?”

“Yeah. I wanna live here. LP looks fun besides, Amaretto got 2 babies and man now so she doesn’t have time for me and Tequila is here.”

“I see what’s going on here.”

“What?”

“You are lonely. You can’t bare the thought of being apart from one of your triplet sisters. It’s really unhealthy.”

“I can live without them!”

“Doubt it!”

 

 

“But really GL. I wanna come live here. The truth is.. my boyfriend Jackson Jackson dumped me before I came here and I can’t go back. I was wondering if I can stay with you and Emmy until I can find a boyfriend with a nice house.”

 

 

 

“I don’t know about that sister. I can help you find a nice house instead. I’m not sure if we have enough room for you until you find such of thing which I think is terrible. You should find true love instead.”

 

 

“Don’t you have a fairy house?”

“Yes.”

“I can stay in there for the most part. I have a lot of true lovers. Cause there’s been a lot of men who say who love men when they are on top of me.”

“Those men are users and did not love you. They only love your lady bits because it was too user friendly. One day you will find the right guy who actually loves you.”

 

 

“Thanks for letting me stay with you.”

“No problem dear sister. Apparently I need to help protect you from chlamydia.”

“Huh? Chlamydia? Borage’s daughter is harmless. I met her once.”

“What is with this family and baby names?!”

 

 

As the sun had set it was time to move out little party on the roof. We had a guest joined us, Abrianna King. Her family is well known in town. Her attention was on Borage but that wasn’t too surprising, really. It did seem like Niro was trying to grab her attention with his dancing. I never seen him dance so hard in his life. It was kind of amusing and pathetic.

 

 

I was Tequila trying to order a drink from Elesa. I just have to remember to never accept a drink from Tequila and let all the bartenders know to never let Tequila moonlight for a second. Not sure if she thought about it but I’ll make sure that never happens.

 

 

“Got anything extra special for a drink?”

“Like a cherry?”

“That’s lame. Ya know. Something special. Something that can create some memories or take them away.”

“Um we don’t do that here.”

“Well aren’t ya a little buzz kill. I should moonlight, then this party would be jumping.”

“Something tells me I shouldn’t let you near this area. I’m watching you, missy.”

I’m watching missy! Bleh! Whatever! You’re just a kid!”

 

 

“Hey Rio, wanna dance with the rest?”

“Why were you eye humping Borage at dinner?”

“Rio.. Really? Wanna dance?”

“Janiya… Were you?”

“Hah! Don’t be silly. I wasn’t eye humping Borage at dinner. Let’s dance.”

“You were smiling and batting your eyes…”

“Where is this coming from?!”

“I dunno.. I just- I’m sorry..”

“Look, your cousin is pretty with pretty hair. I like his hair. Is that bad?”

“No..”

 

 

I felt pretty silly starting a fight with Janiya about her eyeing Borage at dinner cause she liked his hair. I don’t know why I was feeling insecure suddenly. I guess I feared she would be more interest in his love genie nature since they are supposed to be better lovers in bed and I’m just a boring human. She cupped my face with her warm palms and slowly leaned in to kiss me gently on my lips. It assure that she was still attracted to me and we start to dance around a little.

 

 

 

We laugh, we dance, we drank the night away. Not worrying about a single thing that night. It was time we had a great night out, being young and carefree like we should time to time but not too much. Sometimes it’s good to let loose. I saw a side of Janiya that I never seen before that wasn’t influence by Tequila’s roofies. She was having fun and seem like she was enjoying herself. Not saying that she never have fun but she always a reserve person who didn’t seem much of a partier. However tonight, she was loving it and I was loving his side of her.

 

 

I hope the big send off party will be as great as this little party was. With that said, it got me thinking about school now. Do I really want to go for a business major when fine arts is more appealing? I’m still torn between both majors and it’s possible if I do both but I’ll be in school forever. But I don’t know. I do want my restaurant but I do love music. I’m suppose to be enjoying myself right now. Not worrying about school and my future..

Tango Inferno: Chapter 2.9, Better Days

I told everyone about the new changes that was gone to Montigo Palms and how it was pretty amazing. When Janiya left the room, I mention how pretty the female employees were to the guys. Of course Niro and Borage suggested that we all check out the place tomorrow night. Any mention of a pretty girl and these 2 would be on it.

The next night we all made our way to the palms for a nice night out. Janiya was hoping for a cozy night in front of the TV with me but my cousins are still in town and it would be nice to show them around town as much as possible. Janiya gave me a half smile as I told her that we all plan to check out the club. After we were all dressed, we visited the club. Janiya’s frown turned into a smile as she sat down at the blackjack table with my cousin. Janiya is pretty good at playing blackjack and probably felt like she could beat them. I hope she’s seeing that this was a better ideal than sitting at home. This gives Janiya a chance to bond with them.

 

 

 

“So have any of you played before?”

“I do on my computer when my kids are gone.”

“I have no ideal what I’m doing. I just do whatever Tequila does.”

“I see you’re lost without sidekick, Amaretto.”

“She got a boyfriend and lives with him now.”

“Poor you. I’m not gonna be your new sidekick.”

“I wasn’t asking you, dummy! Anyway how do I play?”

“Wow guys.. This is gonna be easy.”

“Don’t be so sure of yourself, Janiya. I’m pretty good at this.”

“We’ll just see about this Borage.”

“Oh please, B! You can’t even read. So how you gonna play?”

“You can’t read either, Tequila.”

“Oh yeah.. True.”

 

 

 

“I can not believe this! How did you- You must have cheated, Borage!”

“I told ya that I was pretty good, Janiya. Let’s make this more fun. When I win the next round, you can give me a friendly kiss on the cheek.”

“You cheated.. I just know it! I never lose. You counted the cards!”

“So I didn’t win?”

“No, our brother-cousin did you idiot. Those wings made you more dumb. When did you turn into a fairy?”

“Twallan? I wanted to win. So if I count the cards I can win?”

“That’s cheating! Don’t you dare cheat like your brother, cousin or whatever he is to you.”

 

 

 

 

“Looks like I won again. Looks like you own me a friendly kiss.”

“That’s cause you cheated again!”

“Don’t be a sore loser, sexy lady. I tell you what, I’ll let you win the next round and I’ll kiss you on the cheek.”

“I don’t need you to let me win cause I can and will beat you!”

“You know you’re kinda sexy when you’re pissed off.”

“Shut up!”

 

 

 

“I wanted to win. I’m gonna go broke.”

“Why play when you don’t even know how to? If you think grandmama is gonna send you more money then you’re dead wrong.”

“We can’t get anymore from grandmama.”

“She said we were old enough to handle money now and should have figure out how to make more of it by now.”

“How are you gonna pay for your school?”

“Grandmama said she’ll pay if I prove to her that I enrolled. She sent me a nice check.”

“You’re spending that check here, aren’t ya?”

“Totally.”

 

 

 

Niro and I tried our luck in blackjack on another table. Let’s just say that my skills are a bit rusty. Janiya taught me how to play. We use to come up here a lot when we turned 18.

 

 

 

Clearly Niro was a better player…

“I hate this game.”

“That’s cause you suck at it. I am the master of this.”

“Yeah.. you’re still a virgin.”

“That was cold and unrelated to this.”

 

 

 

“Oh no! That was most of my college fund!”

“Muhahahaha! Stupid!”

“Hey, don’t laugh at my misfortune B.”

“Why would you spend your college money here? You know you suck at gambling.”

“Maybe we can rob a bank?”

“Go do what you’re both good at.”

“Like what?”

“Fucking strangers, but ask for money this time.”

 

 

 

 

“How did you know about that? I swear I only done it for a month.”

“Huh? You were hookin’?”

“Maybe.. Your face is stupid!”

“My face is not! Let’s just call daddy and ask for money?”

“Daddy is busying hoing his dick around, he ain’t got no money.”

“So they don’t pay you for having 100 babies?”

“You’re idiot! No they don’t pay you to be a ho unless you’re a hooker!”

 

 

 

We were starting to get a little hungry and I made my way to the piano lounge while the others finish up their game. I saw a face whom I haven’t seen in years. It was my aunt Lei. She moved away soon after her 18th birthday and haven’t made much contact with us since then. I figure she was having a better life in Twinbrook and that was probably why we didn’t hear much from her. However that was far from the truth which I later found out.

 

 

 

“I didn’t know you were in town. Dad haven’t said anything to me. When did you get here? How long are you staying? We got so much to catch up now since we haven’t heard much from you. How is life treating you? Are you still in TB?”

 

 

 

“Oh wow.. so many questions. I guess I can’t blame you since I wasn’t good about keeping contact with everyone but I’m having better days now. I was in a dark time in my life but things are better. I just moved back into town with my husband Eddie. I guess you can call me Mrs. Montigo-Starr now. I’m here to stay now. I dunno why I left. Twinbrook was a terrible place but I’m glad to be back with my husband. LP is my home.”

 

 

 

“Wow.. You’re married? Congrats.. When did this happen? I had no ideal that you got married and all. It’s good to see you again. I’m sorry that TB didn’t work out for you. So had any kids yet or did we all miss out on that too?”

 

 

 

“We got married about 3 years ago. Sadly no kids yet. Eddie and I are trying to have a baby despite what the doctors say. Hopefully I can get a second option from a doctor here. Eddie and I just bought a house and we just moved in 3 days ago. I been meaning to call everyone but I figure I would surprise everyone. So here I am. Matius did a great job with the palms.”

“Yeah my dad did a pretty awesome job here. So where did you meet your husband? What were the doctors saying?”

“I first saw Eddie when I took a trip to Sunlit Tides but I was too shy to say anything to him. I later saw him again when I helped my friend Monique move to Sunset Valley. I was a total clutz and tripped in front of him. There was no way I could say anything to him. So one night.. he found me in a club where I worked at in TB. He was visiting a friend. Let’s say that night he changed my life forever. In fact he rescue me that night.”

“Rescue you from what?”

“From the life that I was living. I was in a dark place. I had a miscarriage and the dad wasn’t as supportive as I thought he should be. I lost my scholarship at the art school that I was tending. I wanted to pay for school with money that I earned and not with money that was handed to me. I wanted to be a humble person. Amaretto suggest that I should work at the strip club with her. I refused. Then one night, my art teacher made an offer. He would pay from my schooling if I sleep with him 3 times a week. I refused his offer… He raped me more than once.. I dropped out of school. I drank a lot. I tried a few party drugs. I became so depressed that I took Amaretto’s offer to dance at the strip club. I didn’t about anything anymore. Then Eddie found me.. We fell in love and now I’m here. Having better days.. Better days compare than the time in TB.”

“I dunno what to say to that. Just wow. I’m sorry that you had to go through that. Did you ever press changes against your art teacher.”

“There wasn’t enough evidence to convict him with. I was shunned at school. No one believed me. They felt that I set it up. He raped me 2 other times but it didn’t matter if I went to the police. They wouldn’t believe me. So I dropped out.”

“That’s fucked up.”

 

 

 

“I try not to think about the past. Eddie and I will start a new life together here in LP. I miss the sunny skies and warm climate. Hopefully with the move, Eddie can put a baby in me. We thought about other methods if I can’t get pregnant on my own.”

“Adoption?”

“That’s one of them but I want to have a biological child at least. IVFs and possible a surrogate mother.”

“Well I wish you nothing but the best. you remember Janiya?”

“Yeah.” 

“We are still together and living in a house that I had built that’s not too far from here.”

“I had a feeling that house I passed was a Montigo home. It’s nice. Maybe I’ll come and visit you soon.”

“We are about to have dinner in a bit. You should join us. Tequila just moved here and Borage and Martini are visiting.”

“I had dinner with Eddie before he head off to his new job. But thanks.”

 

 

 

It was nice to see and catch up with my aunt Lei but I had no ideal she was having a hard time. Hopefully with her return here, she’ll have a better life. The others were done with their game and we all sat down to order. Kensi was on the piano. I had no idea that she could sing as well. It was nice to hear some nice jazzy music to go along with our dinner.

 

 

 

“You need with the menu. It lacks pictures you know.”

“Shut up, Rio.. I can read somewhat.. I can read at a third grade level.. I’m gonna learn soon.”

“Borage, how are you getting life without knowing how to read?”

“Easy.. Avoiding books or anything with words.”

“Sometimes I wanted to email you but I don’t. I figure you wouldn’t be able to read it.”

“I’m not that dumb, guys. I can read a little bit. I just can’t read those big words.”

“You need glasses?”

“Don’t be a smartass, Rio.”

“Just joking with you, cuz. You got kids, maybe it’s time you learn so when your kids need help with school-“

“My kids are grown..”

“Well when you have more-“

“I’m not having anymore..”

“Yeah you say that every time a female gives birth.”

“Shut up..”

 

 

 

“Tini, turn your head.”

“Why?”

“Someone wants to take our picture.”

“Who?”

“The person who watches us. Listen to Niro and do it.”

“We are being watched?!”

“Duh, don’t you think it’s odd how you suddenly became a fairy? Now turn and smile.”

“I thought I was just special. Besides Niro, you’re cray cray. No one is watching us.”

“I thought Niro was crazy but this time he’s right. Someone is watching us.”

“You guys are scaring me!”

Tango Inferno: Chapter 2.7, Just a pinch of autonomously, please

Hell, it has no fury like a scorn genie. Perhaps I should be slightly nicer to Niro knowing genies have the ability to banish others into other realms, such as hell. Borage explained some more about it and I’m quite intrigue by it all. I never taken that much interest in genies nor I have for witches. Perhaps I should take some time in reading up on some supernaturals. Being raised with a genie cousin and a vampire cousin, and now having a witch girlfriend, you would think I should have some interest. I’ve been catch up in my own boring human nature and treated my super companions as normal humans as myself.

 

 

 

Maybe I’m just too distracted by Niro and his “invisible” friend who he named “Patches”. He still claims that he’s a real person whom he can only see cause they are special friends and he has special vision. Niro, you’re special alright.

 

 

 

“The hell dude? Who you talkin’ to?!”

“Patches, he wants to play paper, rocks, scissors. You can’t see him cause I got special genie vision.”

“What? What kind of shit is that? They say I’m cray, no you cray!”

“I’m not crazy! You just don’t understand! You gotta be a genie.”

“Yo B! You see that invisible man?” 

 

 

 

“Run, Patches, run! Go hide right now!”

“Don’t tell him to run. I wanna know if B can still him since he be a genie and all.”

Borage didn’t see Patches with his special genie powers. He mentions genies don’t have any special vision or any sort. Niro rebuffs Borage’s claim saying only a genie of his kind has this power. Borage scoffs indicating Niro is speaking bullshit.  I felt like Niro is really starting to lose it a bit.

 

 

 

“Janiya?! What are you doing?”

“I’m trying to cast the crazy out of you.”

“But I’m not crazy! You’re crazy! Stop.”

“You’re not going to school with us talking that madness. I cast the crazy out! Crazy be gone!”

“Stooooooooop!”

 

 

 

“So do you feel any different? Like not crazy or anything?”

 

 

 

 

“Actually, I feel quite fabulous like I’ll soon look slightly different with new hair and skin. In fact we all will get new hair and skin and look more sexy. Can you feel it? The sexiness is coming when we enter a portal called CAS.”

 

 

 

“Well shit, I think I just made you even crazier than before.”

 

 

 

Afterwards Niro’s weirdness, I figure it was time to turn in for the night and leave the others to their own devices. Janiya soon joined me in our room.

“You sure about taking Niro along with Tequila with us? They oblivious have some issues that needs to be addressed. I’m really concern about Niro, that invisible friend of his is making him even stranger. Would he manage to study and focus on his grades? As for Tequila, I think she’ll be wasting her time. Does she even know what a book is?”

“I think Niro will do just fine. Maybe if he meets a sweet college girl, we’ll hear no more of this Patches guy. Not sure about Tequila but out of all of Rosette’s kids, she’s the only one interest in college. I hope she’ll do okay.”

“Let’s say they did well and manage to get their degrees, you really want them as your business partners? What if you wanted to branch out and pursuit other business opportunities, you know they wanna tag along.”

“I’m pretty sure they’ll want to do their own thing after sometime. Niro talks about toy making often. He has some neat ideal for new toys for kids. As Tequila, her side of the family love to party more, I can see her wanting her own night club like Borage.”

“Yeah, I think the strip club is more of her thing. I didn’t know Niro was interest in toy builder. Never saw him as the inventor type.”

“You gotta talk to him sometime. Niro is a little different but he has dreams and goals like me.”

 

 

 

 

I hope my mentioning of Niro’s interests will make Janiya be less harsh towards him. She felt a little bad to think he’ll be a burden on us but I assure that he’ll be fine. We gave each other a goodnight kiss and intended to go the sleep but I had other things on my mind.

 

 

 

“Yo B, you gonna do her?”

“Yeah, when you 2 get out.”

“Ah c’mon, B! Tini and I wanna see you. You think you better than dad?”

“Get out!”

“C’mon T, I really don’t wanna see this. It’s weird.”

“Where’s your sense of adventure, Tini?”

“It’s out there, let’s go and grab it.”

“Yes, please. Get out, I’m trying to have a moment here.”

“Moment of lameness. Let’s go, Tini.”

 

 

 

When morning came about, Borage and Diamond said their goodbyes. To insure no forgetfulness, Diamond convinced Borage to take a photo with her in hopes he’ll remember her.

 

 

 

However she might want to work on her photo taking skills.

 

 

 

Surely Borage is more skilled with mobile photo taking. Probably cause of all the photos he takes of his genitals for send to various women. They make look sweet in the moment, but not earlier.

 

 

 

 

“Oh yeah! I told ya I was pretty good at this.”

 

 

 

 

“Big deal, I let you win. You’re a girl and all. I figure I’ll let you win.”

 

 

 

 

“You’ll promise to keep in contact with me?”

“Yeah, I got your number and email. I promise to hit you up everyday.”

“I’ll miss you.”

“I’ll miss you too.”

 

 

 

“Dat ass.”

“Seriously dude?”

“What? I’m just saying. I can still why you’ll hit that but how could you forget her? If I had her, I would never forget her.  I would never let her go. Why do douche bags like you get all the ladies?”

“Who you calling a douche? I’m not some weirdo with a invisible friend named Patches.”

“Ugh, only I can see him cause I got magic eyes.”

“Whatever dude, you’ll never her a lady like Diamond or a lady at all.”

“I’ll get a lady. I’ll show you. I’ll show you all. I can get ladies like any other genie.”

“Wanna put some money on it?”

“Hell yeah!”

” I bet 5 Gs you can’t get a lady to fuck at the party.”

“I bet 5 Gs I can.”

“Okay cuz, bring it.”

“I hope you got your ATM card. You gonna make a withdraw soon.”

 

 

 

Tango Inferno: Chapter 2.2, Tagging Along

I greeted my cousins but was curious of why they were here. It’s been some years since I last seen them at one of our family reunion. I wonder how long have they been in town since I know neither of them lived here. We don’t have any other Montigos living here besides us and my dad. My cousin Nina moved to Bridgeport and is DJing at vampire night clubs, my uncle Malix moved there as well. My aunt Lei is living in Twinbrook, I’m not sure what she’s been up too. I know she went there to attend a art school but that the last thing I know about her. And my cousin Nyx, I have no idea what’s she’s been up to. I have no idea where’s she’s located since she travels a lot. We lost touch after she was sent away, I hope all is well with her. She had a lot of issues when we were teens.

 

 

 

“Hey guys long time, no see. What bring you guys around these neck of the woods?”

“Borage burned my house down. I need a place to stay.”

“Huh? So you all came all the way here?”

“I live here now, I invited Borage and Martini to check out my new place since I moved across town , then dummy over here burned my house down!”

“Hey, I was testing my magic. It’s a genie thing.”

“Go try your stupid genie magic at your own house and burn it down!”

“I notice how your ink job is bad, Tequila.”

“Shut up! Yours looks stupid!”

 

 

 

“Anyway Rio, my favoritest cousin of all, can I please stay here? Your house is so big, you wouldn’t know I was here.”

“He’ll know you were here when he watched 12 men leave your room, hozilla.”

“Shut up your cocksucker! Pretty please Rio?”

“I guess you could stay here until you find a new place to stay.”

“Don’t do it man, she’ll leave her herpes all over the place.”

“Shut it asshole! You can’t talk Mr. I-wanna-fuck-1000-ladies, you probably got tons of nasty cooties!”

“I’m clean, something you’re not.”

“I had it with you! Go get a hair cut, you look stupid!”

“I was gonna but Martini got the wrong tickets, I had no time!”

 

 

 

 

“I see you two are such loving siblings…cousins.. Whatever you guys are. Tequila, you are more than welcome to stay here if you like. I’m sure Niro and Janiya won’t mind. We have plenty of space for you to stay. I guess Borage and Martini would a place to stay until they leave, we have room for them too.”

“You are awesome, Rio. Were gonna have so much fun.”

“I think it would be cool to reconnect with you, Borage and Martini for the time being.”

“I’ll be in town for a few weeks, I needed to get away from some shit back home. So Rio, how are things at Montigo Palms? Especially, how fine are the ladies there?”

“Damn it Borage, can you ever keep your dick in your pants? You won’t learn!”

“Shut up hag, I’m on a mission to…. forget. I do what I want.”

“Just don’t make another baby while you’re here.”

 

 

 

 

“Borage, the club is doing fine. We all can go there tonight if you all want to?”

“You know we do, just warn the girls about Borage’s cooties.”

“I do not have cooties, hag face! I will warn the guys about your many diseases.”

“That’s it!”

“Guys, let’s calm down. I can’t have you both fighting.”

“That’s what we do, Rio. It’s no harm really. I’ve always been this way with my idiot sisters.”

“Who you calling a idiot?! You look like a homeless bum on crack!”

“Guys, really..”

“It’s fine Rio, we just play like this all the time.”

 

 

 

 

“Anyway Rio, are there a lot of hot guys at the club? I haven’t been there even tho I’ve been living here for 2 years.”

“Two years? How come you never made contact with us then?”

“Busy plus for the first year, I was traveling a lot. My sisters got this reality show now and I wanted to be in it for a little bit. It was fun until I learned what my 2 of sister did so I left.”

“What did they do?”

“They fucked my dad.”

“Oh.”

“And Borage wants to kill him for that and other reasons.”

“I could careless what he did with your sisters, what he did with my sister and- I came here to forget…”

“I guess you both now have daddy issues now?”

“Not as bad as Cece. She really hates him now!”

“You all have interesting lives…”

 

 

 

 

After drying off from swimming and getting changed, I asked Tequila and Borage to join me in family room. I figure we had a lot of catching up to do. I would asked Martini to join us but she seem more interested in staring out in space. I wonder if she’s okay but Tequila said she always does that and it probably cause  their mom use to mix rum with their formula when they were babies. I swear Rosette don’t need to have anymore kids.

“Whatcha been up to all this time, Rio?”

“Just living basically but I plan to do something with my life. How about you, Tequila.”

“Drinking, dancing, partying, what else?”

“Aren’t you ready to settle down? Aren’t you in your forties now?”

“And? I don’t need to act my age when I don’t look like it. I love to party!”

“I kinda wonder about your side of the family, none of you age.”

“Maybe cause my mom is a clone from a immortal genie?”

 

 

 

 

“Hmm that’s pretty interesting. Ya know Niro is a genie too is he immortal too?”

“No, but he’ll age slow and live long like Rosette and her kids. But he’ll live long than them. He and I aren’t the same type of genie.”

“There’s different types of genies?”

“Yep, I’m a Navox genie and he’s a Angnav genie. Navox mean “lover” and Angnav means “healer” in some old genie language.  Navox genies were most desired since they were excellent lovers. They were granted immortality while Angnav weren’t, they just live really long.”

“How do you know about all this genie shit suddenly, dummy.”

“Grandmama talks to me.. Well ever since I had Aries, he’s a special rare type of genie. Grandmama schooled me after he came home plus my granddaughter is a special type too. We talk cause I’m the favorite too.”

“Whatever asshole! Why do my mom and my siblings all age slow if were not genies like you?”

“Magic.”

 

 

 

 

“Can you be a little less vague, idiot?”

“If you must know hozilla, grandmama froze your mama’s age for some years so her life would be extended. My mama wasn’t good at cloning and Rose was aging too fast. Grandmama froze her age, she’s actually 6 years older than my mama. Grandmama did some genie magic after unfreezing her age and extended her age since my mama and her were so close like twins.”

“Wait, you genies can extend someone’s life? Could Niro do it since he’s a different type?”

“We can, my grandpa’s life was extended. Niro can extend but my kind can give a longer setting than him.”

“That explains why he’s still alive, he always looked younger than my grandpa when he was older than yours. This is some interesting stuff.”

 

 

 

 

“So Rio I notice that Asian looking side of the house. What’s up with that?”

“It’s going to be my restaurant one day. After I go to school majoring in Business. Niro is going with me too since he wants to be my partner in it.”

“I wanna be apart of it too! I love to cook since I’m not a genie who can magically food appear.”

“If you’re serious about it, you’ll need to go to school with us.”

“Me? Go to school? Sounds boring.”

“Well if you want to be a partner too, you have to.”

 

 

 

“Me, a college student. I guess. I’ll be the first of mama’s kids to be in college. Oh wait… no. I forgot about Fajita.. She went to school. That bitch nerd! I wanted to be the first! You asshole better not tell the hot guys there my real age!”

 

 

 

“We can get you enrolled in the morning, Tequila. How about you, Borage? Ever thought about going to school?”

“Like I could.. I got kids. Lots of them.. I would like to go to meet all the sexy college ladies.”

“What’s you with you genies? Niro said the same thing. I thought he was some healer genie.”

“Doesn’t matter what type we are, all genies love hot, freaky sex. We’re like sex gods or something. Especially us Navoxes.”

“I wonder if my dad was secretly a genie. He was sex addict and got help for it.”

“Wanting put your magic in lots of ladies isn’t a “problem”. That what makes us different from you humans, sex is a wonderful thing.”

“True. So is self love.”

“Oh.. Why bother with that when you got a sexy lady who could touch you? If I had her in my house, it’s orgasms all night long.”

“Don’t even think about my girl that. I just love rubbing one off… often.”

“Okay, super mast bator. You have a problem.”

“There’s nothing wrong of what I do! It’s natural!”

“What’s natural is actually fucking your lady, not giving your self handies every 5 seconds.”

“We have sex, she’s not starved.”

“When? In those 3 seconds you’re not touching yourself?”

“Shut up! Don’t judge me! She gets enough. I’m done with this topic.”

 

 

 

I took my cousins and lady to Montigo Palms for a night out of fun. it was nice getting out and seeing this place again. It’s been a while since I last came here. My dad doesn’t bartender here as much since he travels a lot between here and St. Claire. I have a feeling that we’ll have a great night here.

 

 

 

“I knew I should of gotten a hair cut and shaved my face before I came here. No lady is gonna want me if I’m not cleaned up. I really let myself go..”

“They wouldn’t want you anyway. You’re butt ugly!”

“Shut up hagzilla! No one asked you. I think I could still get ladies looking this way. I’ll show you, Tini.”

“Whatevs.”

 

 

 

We hit the dance floor and danced the night away. Janiya was actually dancing for once. I could never get her onto the dance floor but that’s when I learned that Tequila been doing shots with her. Janiya tried to keep up with her but Tequila is quite a drinker and can handle a lot without issue. I guess having Tequila around would be fun since she loosen Janiya up a bit.

 

 

 

“Since were going to school and shit, we should throw a big party here!”

“It’s hard believe that you’ll be in school. You’re destined to fail.”

“Shut up dummy! You’re just a hater! Stop making dem bay bays like daddy then you could go too!”

“Ain’t nobody got time for that.”

“What’s this I’m hearing about a party?”

“We should throw one, Rio!”

 

 

 

“If you do have a party then you need a sexy and awesome DJ, me.”

 

 

 

“We would need a DJ, Borage. I really don’t wanna pay to bring one in, plus I think Nina is on tour. I think you’re be perfect, Borage.”

“Party? What are you guys talking about?’

“Tequila suggest we should throw a party here before heading to school, Janiya.”

“I guess that could be fun.”

“I love parties! Don’t drink anything Tequila gives you though!”

“Why, Tini? She and I did shots.”

“She puts roofies in the drinks.”

“Why?’

“I dunno, she roofied herself too.”

 

 

 

“What’s this I’m hearing about a party? Will there be sexy ladies there?”

 

 

 

 

“Hell yeah, Niro! Only the hottest bitches will be at this party of ours. No butt ugly hags allowed!”

“I kinda like your cousins, Rio.”

“Janiya, you’re drunk. You’ll hate em when you sober up.”

“I totally roofied her drink! You’ll get lucky tonight, cuzzo!”

“You did what to my drink?”

“I don’t need roofies to have sex with my lady..”

“Then maybe I should of roofied yours instead then she’ll get lucky since you love to over beat your meat!”

“There’s nothing wrong with self loving!”

“Your cousin is funny.”

 

 

 

“If you have fairies in this town, invite them. I would love to put my magic stick in their magic box. I never fucked one before besides.. I need to forget and fulfill my fairy fantasy….”

 

 

 

 

“What’s with you and damn fairies? They ain’t that great. GB and GL are fairies and they suck! Someone remember to put a damn fairy on the list for the fairy lova over there. Fairies ain’t nothing but trouble. Who am I kidding? You love trouble!”

 

 

 

We decided on having a party before we headed off to school. I like this idea but not the fact that Tequila drugged my girlfriend for some random reason. I’m gonna have to watch her. I guess I should watch for fairies for Borage. The only fairy I know of is my little sister Azalea but she’s way too young for him. I guess I will talk to about dad about having a part here in a few weeks.

 

 

 

 

“Rio boo, I don’t feel good.”

“It’s cause Tequila drugged your drink.”

“Why?”

“She’s a idiot. She drugged her own too.”

“She’s dumb.”

“I know but she can’t help it.”

 

 

 

“What you guys doing? Blowing bubbles? That should be easy. I’m great at blowing!”

“Uh.. yeah Tini.. I’m sure you are.”

“Look Rio, bubbles! Bubbles are funny.”

“What’s wrong with your girl?”

“Your sister drugged her.”

“Ha ha ha! Never trust her with a drink.”

“Now you tell us.”

 

 

 

“I forget! That’s cool that you’re all going to school. I wish I could go but my mama said that’s for smart people. I’m not smart and I rather drink and party. Learning is hard, we didn’t finish high school.  They kicked us out. Tequila did get a GED. I would get one but studying is hard. Drinking is easy so I stick to what I know! If I did go, just think about all the hot dick I would be getting.”

 

 

 

 

“It amazes of how any of you made it this far in life..”

 

 

 

 

“I think I’m turning into a kangaroo.”

 

 

 

 

“Look at all this money that I’m winning! I’m gonna stock up on condoms for the college guys!”

“I need to stock up too. My machine must be broken cause I’m not winning.”

“It’s cause you suck!”

“And you swallow.”

“Guys love a girl who swallows.”

“True dat.”

 

 

 

“Okay magic well, I need your help. I need a sexy fairy in my life. I can’t grant myself a wish so you need to do it. What’s the point of being a genie if I can’t grant my own wishes.”

 

 

 

“Please give me my wish magic well. The fairy gotta be sexy, and a lady in the streets and a freak in the sheets.”

 

 

 

 

“What’s this shit? Am I getting more sexy for fairies?”

 

 

 

 

After dancing and playing with bubbles, we decided to play some pool. I was shock of how well Borage plays pool. I guess working in a nightclub pays off when it comes to pool. So far it’s been a good night. Janiya is still able to walk and keep up. Maybe Tequila didn’t drug her but honestly I don’t know. Janiya is acting different than usually but I kinda like this side of her.

 

 

 

“Here’s the deal Rio, if I win then I get a night with your girl since you’re very content with your hands.”

 

 

 

 

“Here’s the deal Borage, if you touch her then I will cuts your nuts off.”

 

 

 

 

“I’m just messing with you cuz. You know I wouldn’t do something like that. I may kinda look like my dad but I’m nothing like the bastard.”

I wonder about my cousins. They speak very ill about their father, I know he wasn’t in there lives when they were kids. I always thought my dad wasn’t the best dad because he was always so wrapped in drama and not paying much attention to me. He was in some love triangle with my mom and Jade. The only one who cared me was my aunt Lei before she moved away then I just had Janiya. My dad did get better over time. After his 3 marriage failed under 6 months, he focus on me more. When I compare my dad against theirs, my dad was a great dad. He wouldn’t do most of the shit theirs did. No one why my cousins are so screwed up.

 

 

 

 

“I think my stick is bigger than yours.”

“No it’s not. It’s the same size.”

“Nope, my is bigger.. It’s cause your-“

“Don’t you dare say it..”

“You’re Asian.”

“I will stick this up yours if you don’t shut up.”

“Oh someone is kinky. Too bad only your hand only see that kinky action.” 

“It’s a natural thing!”

 

 

 

After getting home from the club, Janiya started to head for bed but my cousins showed no signs of settling down for the night. They happen to get a keg and started to do keg stands. I don’t think I can keep up with these guys.

 

 

 

 

“You stupid ho!”

“My bad. You’re kinda fat.”

“I ain’t fat! You fat!”

“I’m not fat! You’re fat!”

“Am not!”

“Am too!”

“Your mom is fat!”

“We got the same mom!”

“Your dad is fat!”

“Daddy is kinda fat. Wait.. we got the same daddy too!”

 

 

 

It was long before before one of my idiot started a fire in my kitchen. I wonder if it was Borage since he burned down Tequila’s house. I know that most genies are pyromaniacs. Thank goodness Janiya was there to put out the fire with her witch magic. The idiots just stood there and screamed at the fire like screaming would put it out. It may of not been him since I had him passed out naked in the hot tub.

 

 

 

 

“Drinking is fun! Anyone wanna do another keg stand?”

“I see flying monkeys. Let’s go fry some cheese sticks. I be hungry.”

“Which one of you sluts smoked all of my pot?”

“Tini did.”

“I love pot and french fires.”

“I’m gonna kill you, Tini. I needed you!”

“I need you in my arms bro cuz.”

“Tini, you dumb! Let’s go fry some food. I be hungry too!”

“I hate you hags.”

 

 

 

It was near sunrise and my cousins were still up partying after Janiya put the fire out. I didn’t want to show my cousins that I’ve gotten soft and gave the keg a try. I tried to do a keg stand with Borage but I was still sleepy and dropped him.

 

 

 

“You okay, cuz?”

“Yeah asshole but your face won’t be.”

Tango Inferno: Chapter 2.1, Plans & Goals

It’s me Rio Montigo. It’s been a while since you all last seen me. A lot has happen over the years. I’m now a young adult and living in my own house… not alone of course. My girlfriend Janiya lives with me and my cousin Niro as well. I like living with them I guess. My girlfriend is amazing and I better say that or she’ll go upside my head. Niro is cool, but sometimes he’s a little odd. Life in Lucky Palms have been some good but I feel I have been wasting a good portion of my life sitting around, living the good life. I’m just glad to get a break from all the drama I grew up in.

 

 

 

I had this awesome house built after my trip to Japan with my step dad Adam.  I really want to get in touch with my Japanese roots. We went a restaurant that was attached to a house. I thought that was pretty awesome along with the food their. I was inspire to open my own since I have a love for Japanese food and Lucky Palms lacked in that. Lucky Palms needed something different and I was ready to be that one to bring it. I went to culinary school for a few years because I wanted to open my own restaurant and piano lounge since I love playing the piano a lot.

After finishing culinary school I realize there was one more degree that I needed before starting my dream. Business. I need to know how to run a successful business first. I watched my dad struggle to keep Montigo Palms opened. My dad never finished his business classes and lacked knowledge business wise. He almost sold Montigo Palms but he was able to finish his classes and decided against selling. One thing my dad told me was to go to school before attempting anything. Having the knowledge first will allow me to keep my dreams.

 

 

 

I searched online for the right college of course and found one outside of Lucky Palms. I rather stay in town but Janiya said I should enroll. It’s only cause I learned that she already enrolled there herself without telling me first.  Janiya wants to major in Fine Arts. I would of love to major in that since I love the piano and drawing but I have to do business if I want my dream. Niro took interest in helping me run the place and enrolled in school for business as well. I guess I won’t be going alone and I’m okay with that. I rather go to school with someone.

Anyways our semester doesn’t start until another 3 months from now. So what is there to do until then?

 

 

 

 

In the meanwhile, Janiya has been spending a lot of time drawing. She said she needs to improve her skills so those “white heffas” won’t think they are better than her. I’m not sure where that’s coming from but I found it funny. Janiya had changed over the years but not in a bad way. I still love her but I know she’s ready for the next step in our relationship. Marriage. It’s something that I’m not ready for to be honest. My dad had 3 failed marriages, while my mom is on her second. I like how things are now. Why change it? 

 

 

 

 

And my cousin Niro, he’s spending his time attempting to be a Olympic diver but as you can see that’s going well for him. Niro is slowly coming out of his shell over the past months. He seem so distant whenever we are having a family get together. He acts like he doesn’t belong in the family. Uncle Malix may of been kidnapped child who was illegally adopted. We later learned that my grandma was his third biological parent due to some crazy vampire DNA. His vampire birth mother came across my grandma’s egg. No one know rather if my grandma knew of this. Niro is really a Montigo after all by marriage since my grandpa married my grandma. However it’s not enough convince Niro. He stills feel like a outsider.

 

 

 

 

I told my little sisters Madison and Azalea about us enrolling in school. They were happy at first but realize they wouldn’t be able to come over to swim anymore and hang out after school. My sisters are here every single day for reasons unknown. Janiya doesn’t mind them at times and Niro usually like pranking them. I’ll be happy to have a break from their mindless chatter about boys and fashion.

 

 

 

 

“What do you think college life is gonna be like?”

“I dunno. I don’t think any Montigo from our gen has been to college, Niro.”

“Well I hope there will be some cute girls there.”

“Were going there for a degree, cuz. Don’t forget that. You almost sound like our baby maker cousin.”

“Borage? Ha! It’s a genie thing. I really haven’t dated anyone yet.”

“Genie thing? Please. Were there for degrees not for dating. You can afterwards.”

“You’re not gonna act like my dad are you? Besides, ladies loves genies. I’m ready to live the full college experience.”

“Sex, parties and excessive drinking?”

“Yeah.”

“If you wanted that then pay Zinnia and Rosette a visit in Sunlit Tides. Seriously Niro, promise me you’ll stay focus.”

“It’s easy for you.. You already have a girlfriend.”

“I see what this is about. You need to get laid.”

“Hey!”

“I’m right am I? Stop talking to your invisible friend and maybe it will happen.”

“My friend is REAL! You just can’t see em.”

“Right… When we leave here, keep the invisible friend here.”

“Shut up.”

 

 

 

I worry about Niro sometimes. Ever since he discovered that he’s a genie, he suddenly have a invisible friend who he speaks to. No wonder why he can’t get laid.

 

 

 

 

I was relaxing in my pool one Sunday afternoon. I was enjoying myself, maybe too well. I had a urge to rub one out just cause I wonder  how would it felt it do it out here. I can’t since Niro and Janiya were home and my sisters can show up at anytime. Janiya say I have a problem and need help. I see nothing wrong with being a chronic masturbator. Montigo males have a extremely high sex drive. Just ask my cousin Borage who calls himself BMG. I bet BMG means “Baby Making Genius” cause he’s pretty good at that.

As I was about to reach downstairs I could hear the sweet voice of Janiya calling me. I had no idea that everything is about to change.

 

 

 

“Rio, I know you’re not about to-“

“Jerk off.”

“Yeah!”

“It’s a normal thing!”

“Not when it’s done 20 times a day! Anyway you have some visitors.”

“Who?”

“They told me not to say. You’ll see.”

 

 

 

To my surprise, it was 3 of my idiot cousins from the idiot Montigo side of the family, Borage with his sisters/cousins Tequila Sunrise and Martini. I wonder what bought them here of all places. Knowing them, it’s probably not a good reason at all. However it was nice to see them again. One thing I do like about them is how there’s never a dull moment with them. They were raised terribly but they ended up being very interesting people and unique in their own way. Even if they are brainless.

Tango Inferno: Coming in 2 weeks!

Now that University Life is out, Tango Inferno formerly known as Montigo Tango can restart! It’s been a while since I last worked on this story. Gen 1’s story has ended so now it’s time to start for Gen 2 with Rio and Niro being the main focus. Azalea, Madison and Tequila Sunrise from Party Montigo tags along for the ride.

 

Remember this guy? Rio is all grown up 🙂

 

It will start out with Rio, now 25 and Niro who just turned 18 on their way to attend college to gain a degree in Business. After traveling to Simyoko with his step dad Adam Cho, Rio decided he wants to open his own Japanese cuisine restaurant/Piano lounge. Rio enjoins playing the piano and is hoping that opening the restaurant would get him in touch with his Japanese roots. But after watching his father Matius struggle to keep Montigo Palms open, Rio decided he he should attend college. Matius never finished his business classes at the community college which caused him to struggle for a while. Rio didn’t want to make the same mistakes as his father did and enrolled in Business even though he prefers a Fin Arts major since he has a love for playing the piano. Rio convinces his cousin Niro to attend college with him and added him as a business partner. Niro agrees and enrolls. Niro hopes the time away from Lucky Palms will help him with his insecurities of feeling that he doesn’t belong because his father Malix was kidnapped child and isn’t a biological Montigo. Their cousin Tequila Sunrise moves into and wants to be a part of Rio’s business. Tequila learns if she wants to have any ownership in Rio’s business, she must enroll in college too. Tequila has no interest in school and rather party than study. Tequila reluctantly attends college along with Rio and Niro. Janiya, Rio’s girlfriend enrolls in college too, she’s a  Fine Arts major.

 

With Gen 2, they will have a lot challenges ahead of them as they live day by day. They would be in war with themselves, family and friends.

Rio wants to be in one with his Japanese roots but also has a commitment issue and fears marriage. After school, Janiya pushes for marriage and wants to start a family. When a new borderline racist cousin, Javier Montigo moves to Lucky Palms, he tries to force Rio to be in touch with his Colombian roots instead. Javier brings along a friend Daniella Dias who has a hidden agenda involving Rio.

Niro struggles with not feeling that he belongs in the family and has nightmares about his biological grandfather Malachi Lex though he has no memory of him. Niro hasn’t been the same since he mysterious returned home after being missing for a several years. Niro has no memory of his time with Malachi, Amos and his later mother Cira. Niro notice there’s something different about him, he learns that he’s a genie. Niro wants to know about his later mother Cira’s family in hopes of having a family where he belongs.

Azalea like Niro struggles of not feeling that she belongs in the Montigo. Matius had adopted as his daughter and Madison treats her like a sister but it’s not enough. Azalea wants to know what happen to her mother Jade but Matius keeps a tight lip about what happen. Azalea wants to meet her birth father but gets more than she bargain for.

Madison is pretty and she know it. Madison believes she can get through life with her good looks and sweet, bubbly personality but she’s later slapped with reality.

Tequila Sunrise would be the first Montigo from her side of the family to attend college, but will she succeed?
