Well now what?
I’ve been here a day, and I’ve managed to offend the vampiric masses just by walking through their town. The only thing I’ve hurt was my titanium golem. I’ve been kicked, and punched by the local humans I’ve come here to help. And the only vampire I’ve interacted with, I sold him a necklace so we had some startup money. I found a library and that was apparently my biggest crime to date because I was late getting back after this discovery and while I was reading books the vampire nation mobilized to find me. And the only one I can depend on for help or advice won’t talk to me. She’ll argue and be standoffish but not talk, not involve me, not help me understand this place. There’s a disconnect between Layla and I and I need to solve it. I can’t come here to sit on the sidelines. We’ve met the leader of the resistance because Layla went and saved them all alone. Then she went patrolling alone. Then she went gathering supplies alone. The stakes have been raised but she continues to put herself at risk solo. She bashes me for having a superman complex but continues to take on everything like she’s the one who’s bullet proof. I wouldn’t be able to forgive if something happened to her cause she got hurt in her quest to do it all herself.
She has all the background for this kind of fight, raised her entire life to hate those around her that were supposed to be close. But she has the teaching skill of a sock puppet, and I can’t keep siting on the sidelines.
Once again we found ourselves in a situation where we had to instantly trust a stranger we just met, and within moments I was saying “look see I’m a dragon”. I hope he proves to be the trustworthy character we hope he is but my first impression I imagine lacked something to be desired based on all the rest of the circumstance in our first meeting. I’ve being given an escort, and it’ not my friend. This ought to be fun, not.

It seems Bucky left his brain in Miami. I can’t rely on him to do anything. He is out disobeying me this very moment! Hello, a simple task like “lets go back to the lair,” and he cannot follow it. There is absolutely no way I am taking him with me to the Detention Center and to rescue the resistance members.
Without Bucky around my rescue operation goes off wonderfully. As expected.
Bucky finally comes home and we get into it yet again. His childish behavior was a bit amusing at conventions and even at gaming. He is absolutely fucking clueless when it comes to anything real and dangerous. I still recall when he charged Montoya and his bodyguards with his fist while they shot him full of holes. He nearly died that time! I cannot take him into any sort of combat situations, he is just the mentality of a six year old.
I went to do some recon and explore the local area. I managed to see some news on TV and found that in response to Buck’s moronic childlike behavior of terrorizing the local civilians the vampire nation called in 600,000 troops! This baffled me at first as that is 46% of the total military but then I correlated that with what seems a 1960’s/70’s era which we seem to be in where they would have potentially over three million troops! It is still staggering the response.
I learned that night that over 10,000 innocent people were rounded up and “harvested,” which I figure means executed. That number doubled by morning. This will likely continue for weeks. I so want to beat the ever loving shit out of Buck, kill him even. I don’t think I have ever been so angry at any one person in my life! I mean it was only like an hour after I told him he was responsible to 10,000 deaths and he was grinning like a six year old and off to play with his golumn. He is like some cute puppy that just shit all over the carpet and has no clue he did anything wrong.
I really cannot talk to him right now or I just may kill him.

Oppression, what an ugly word. History has shown it in so many forms. Hitler’s’ rise to power, slavery and the Civil War. Rich fat cats and dog eat dog world of the not corporate favored.
For the last few months in Miami it meant be a dragon and inherit magic but don’t dare use it, you’ll attract attention. Then it meant rich mobster kidnap beautiful girl cause ya got money, guns, power and ya can! Yeah, fixed that one.
Now it’s off to New York, the big apple. Problem is thanks to a dimensional portal, this big apple has bit marks and only 2 holes in the fruit. Vampires! Ya know a year ago if ya asked me about them I’d have said, great gaming material and seen some cool movies about em. But here?!?! They are the 1%, they are the fat cats, they are the privileged and they are running the joint. Oppression has befallen humanity and humanity is just a depressed food supply.
So we are here, guess a look around is in order. I got suckered by the game I thought was research so I wasn’t able to pack. So we get here and a kid greets us “Oh the dragons are here.” Or something like that. By Layla made us cool biker outfits with dragons on them so I guess the reaction makes sense. He turned out to be part of the resistance, but the last one. The rest all got picked up in a bad sting apparently. So topping Layla’s to do list was get cash, guess she wanted to pawn something. We started porting for a shop. Took me a bit longer, still a little new at the warping thing but I think I got a better handle on it now. However on the way I had a few mishaps. I guess my feet freaked some chick out, then she kicked me. I admit I was annoyed so I said so, then her boyfriend had to chime in and punched me. I mean come on people, really!? I ask ya, would you punch an invisible entity if you were a human? That make a lot of sense to you? You got no idea what you’re trying to hit, if you can hurt it, if you’ll make it mad and what fate it would or could do to you for being stupid. But I was in a mood and I am here to help people, taking to fighting them would be a little counterproductive don’t ya think?
So no real harm done, I finally caught up to her at the shop and she groans something about sirens and somehow thinks it must be my fault. Then she tells me to mug the shop keep since we need to do this quick before cops arrive but really why would they be coming for us, we ain’t done anything yet. So I go in and sell a necklace she brought, we pop up to the roof, decide to head back but along the way I spot the library so I had to take a look around at least. Not a huge lay of the land in discovery but I did note the oppression in the available science information in the library before catching back up with her. But of course she was all hot temper still cause I took longer. Now she’s out shopping, so I guess I’ll scan this history information I read about.

Whew, got to my love and her phone has simply been pickpocketed. But she is ok so thank goodness!
Jack showed up with a “friend” who turned out to be Misty! She told us of another dimension in dire trouble and who could use my help. Bucky’s too for some odd reason but I don’t care to elaborate on to be kind.
This other dimension is overrun by Vampires. Apparently not the sparkly type but the real nasty verity. And many humans there have chosen to dedicate themselves to these vampires for whatever rewards. Fucking sympathizers!
Anyway while all us women spent three and a half days preparing to enter this new dimension Bucky instead decided to spend the whole time playing video games. Damn fucking slack off!
We all got to our new “home” for awhile and it turned out to be a bunch of steam tunnel’s under New York City. We are met by some 13-year-old kid foo who lost his parents three weeks ago and was the latest recruit to this dimension’s resistance. Of which all were captured a few days ago.
Bucky and myself went to recon the city to get an idea of where we were. It seemed to be a sadly depressing city full of the downtrodden with little hope. I found a body in an ally even! Most people walked with their head down and their lips closed. Not fucking Bucky though! God he would not shut the fuck up! He had pedestrians fleeing the streets from us!
We finally found an empty ally and we both went invisible. We had a plan to meet at the destination. Took me all of six seconds. I am meticulous in this sort of thing as one must know when the detonators will go off. And I waited. And waited. And… Oh look sirens. Dang it Bucky.
Bucky finally shows up minutes later. I want to ask him what he did but know he will just lie to me and put on his puppy-dog face. Which so does not work. We start to discuss a plan and he tells me he has one already. Then out of nowhere he creates an illusion of some silly looking guy. But out of nowhere! We were invisible and talking by mental dragon talk. Bucky created an illusion of this silly looking guy right on the sidewalk filled with pedestrians and possibly shopkeepers! Oh and I forgot this is a Vampire only section and I recall Misty saying Vampires hated magic users. Damn it Bucky!
So much for low profile recon…
We safely meet up at the roof. Bucky assures me he can safely make it back to our new lair. I teleport to the lair. Dang, My love looks sexy… I have 10 min for slow-ass to get back here.

I gave Jordan a tour of the Villa, our soon to be new home. I think she liked it, it is hard to say with her. She is a princess who grew up in a palace after all. I end up giving Buck a ride back to the apartment with us so he can pick up his car. It was the only way I could keep him from driving around town for no reason in one of Montoya’s cars. Its been a long day and Jordan and I just go to bed.
The next morning I go rent a moving truck and buy one an Enchanted Moving Dolly that makes whatever you are moving weightless. Jordan could move the bed with this thing. We load up the truck and head to the villa and move in. We are done about noon and I hear noises coming from the kitchen. Probably Bucky starting lunch. To my horror I find Bucky using the outdoor grill in the middle of the kitchen! I finally convince him to move it 20 feet out to the patio. I really do not understand how clueless he is sometimes, his argument for putting it in the kitchen was it is closer to the food. How fucking lazy is he!?
After another argument with Buck I convince him not to take a van of Montoya’s but rather use the moving truck I have already rented for just this reason. I don’t know why Bucky is acting like a moron today.
We start unloading Bucky’s stuff down to his room, he claimed the evil wizards underground dungeon bedroom. Good for him, helps keep him off my half of the Villa. We find Jack in the Alchemy room, which you have to pass through to get to the evil wizards room. Bucky ask Jack what is the orb under the towel, jack starts to touch the orb and we are all knocked unconscious. I wake up after an hour, it’s about 1700 now, everyone else including Jordan is still very unconscious. Five hours later Bucky and Jack wake up. I then find out that the night before Bucky had touched the orb and knew it knocked you out. But he did not think to warn us before having Jack touch it. What the hell is wrong with Buck!?
Jack took off at 2200 but came back a 2300 to join us all for a late dinner. Jack gave me new wands just for us and told us about the magic rings. I wake up Jordan and tell her about the rings.
At midnight as it happens, Bucky now finally has the wand to remove the love spell that was put on his so called girl of his dreams. He finally opens her containment bottle and she is released. Yay, maybe she can whip some sense into Bucky. I am just sick and tired of Bucky acting like a drunken child of late. He did not act like this back in San Francisco that’s for sure.
Jordan and I go to bed. Now that the Villa is terrorist free and ours, and with our new identities I hope things settle down and I can avoid Bucky like the plague for a few weeks and just spend time with Jordan.
One month later. Bucky came dashing into my sewing room asking me where was Jordan. I told him she was out grocery shopping. It takes a few minutes to get any coherent words from him but he had apparently just read that the entire royal family of England has been abducted, all the way up to the Queen herself! I try calling Jordan and no answer. I try the magic communication on the rings and no answer. FUCK!!!
May 30, 2012 11:05
After I round up all the bodies for disposal Bucky and I begin to ransack the villa for anything of worth but then Bucky has the wild idea to buy the place and calls Jack. I go get cleaned up before the camo face paint starts to dry out and give me a rash and the blood all over me dries and begins to stink.
After a long shower and clean clothes I go upstairs and find Bucky trying to cook of all things! We just ate a few hours ago and now Bucky is incessantly ranting that he cannot cook because he does not have an outside grill! What is wrong with him, this is a huge kitchen and has many stove tops. He really drives me nuts sometimes.
Jack comes over and we discuss the villa and what we have found. He seems to think the paintings are very valuable and he will be setting up a front company to “own” the villa and Bucky and I plan to move in. Bucky wants the wizards quarters in the secret basement which works great for me because Jordan and I can take over the master bedroom and huge closets in the upstairs. Somehow Buck wanting to live in an underground cave of his own choosing seem appropriate.
The three women in the basement are sex-slaves from Khuzestan that were brought here about two years ago via the teleporter pads in the teleporter room. After some recon it did turn out the pads do go to Khuzestan and I also found a client list of human traffickers in a newspaper stand. I gave the women some money and took them back to their homes. I also moved four of the five teleporter pads back to the villa and the fifth one I left with one of the women’s families in case there is trouble and they need to get ahold of me.
Just before Jack had first arrived Bucky woke up the old couple who were the house servants, and basically slaves themselves. And of course Bucky, rather than give them money and let them go, offered to hire them. Hello!? Runaway Princess and two illegal Dragons. We do not want staff! Sigh.
Not much to do now, just waiting for Jack to do his magic and see what happens with the villa. I call Jordan and head back to the apartment and pick her up and we go get lunch, go shopping, rollerblading in South Beach and Dinner. While shopping Buck called me. He, in his infinite wisdom, took one of Montoya’s vehicles and drove to the apartment, loaded up his grill and brought it back to the villa. In broad daylight, mid-afternoon, dressed in full tactical gear, body armor, gun and camo face paint. How fucking stupid is he? By some miracle no one called the cops. I have no idea how that is. I even told Jack and he has been double checking.
Jordan caught the sunset on the beach then I stopped on the way home and picked up some drywall so we could finish the repairs on the villa. I took Jordan to the villa and showed her around.
May 16, 2012 21:25
Aside from a few initial setbacks things seem to be going my way now. I have no idea what crazy magic these guys have that returns bullets back at the shooter. I am just lucky I was at a decent enough range I was able to discover it not the hard way when I tried shooting one of them. The Giant Scorpions turned out to be the easy critters, scary as heck but bait a group together and feed them a grenade and they were not much of a threat. Using said explosion as a distraction I was able to mostly take one of their guards by surprise and take do my teleport thing carrying his body which is how I discovered his magic ring. At first it was creepy scary, it had some sort of built in conditioning to serve Montoya but I resisted it. Not sure if it was my military conditioning or the assistance of my other new magic ring to resist magic but I am very thankful of both.
I saw Buck use his far-hitting bat and whack three of the scorpions and sent them flying then he teleported into the house and mentally told me where he was and that he found a secret entrance downstairs.
I ambushed another guard and he got a shot that I guess would have hit me since one of them went right back into his face and blew his brains out. I guess the ring has this magic bullet return magic thing to it.
I go inside and find Buck unconscious. He must have been susceptible to whatever magic effect I felt and seemed to drop most of the guards. Just as I enter I do find one guard who was still awake and would have undoubtedly have killed Buck in the next moment but I said Hi and he shot me, well himself actually. I love this ring! Against my better instincts I wake Buck up. About the same time the guy in a nearby cell wakes up as well, it turns out he is sort of here on a similar agenda and knows Jack so we agree to work together.
Anyway, we do a quick search of the secret basement and don’t find much. The Evil Wizard did have a nasty surprise in his workshop. But it turned out to be an even deadlier surprise for the eight gunmen who opened up on me full auto. Did I say I love this ring!?
We go up to the second floor I go to check a room and hear automatic gunfire from another part of the room, dear lord Buck no! I do my teleporty thing to where I hope I am between Buck and the gunmen. My aim is precise but Buck does not go for cover! Instead he charges right into point black range with three men with assault rifles! I hear the dozens of rounds exiting the assault rifles in horror point blank into Buck, the sounds muffled as Bucks own body acts as a sound suppressor. I try, not fast enough, to grab Buck and throw him to the ground and shield him with my own body. Me being much shorter than Buck I see the shooters, one is Montoya, shoot me in the head which would have been Bucks heart. But bullets magically reverse and explode Montoya and his two bodyguards heads into a disgusting burst of blood, grey goo and shattered bone fragments. I drop to the ground nearly crying as I check what I know is Buck’s dead body.
My god he is still alive! His body armor had been shattered and fragmented and torn into useless dust and advanced fabric, he has one or two dozen bullets in him but he is alive! I want to rush Buck to a hospital but I can’t, they will do tests and find out we are Dragons. Jordan! I need to get him to Jordan! But if I leave now the Evil Wizard will follow us and catch us un prepared. Our Mysterious Friend, Jack’s Friend. He can take Buck to Jordan! I tell him how to get Buck to Jordan and then Teleport Buck and them him to the car and start it for them. God I hope Buck survives, I again force myself not to cry. I go back to the villa.
I need to find this Evil Wizard and I need to find him now. I search everywhere I can for him. Damn it! This is taking too long!
Buck. What? How is he standing in front of me, it has only been minutes it feels. What the HELL is he doing back here, back in harms way! Get the hell out of here! He won’t leave. Fucking god dammed stupid Neanderthal of a moronic…
Ha! That stupid Evil Wizard just tried to sleep everyone again. Great now I have to wake Buck up again… do I? Fine, but I can put him to safe work.
I wonder if the Evil Wizard is in the Vault. I have us check it out. Ok, guards inside, unconscious, I dispatch them before they can be awoken again. I set Buck to begin loading everything into the Bag of Holding Jack provided. I go outside to dispatch the unconscious guards. When I am mostly done with them I am suddenly hit by a powerful bolt of lightening! OUCH! Thanks to this ring and being able to see all around me at once I finally pin point the Evil Wizard! Did I say I love this ring?
The rest is rather anti-climatic actually. I did my teleporty thing to the wizard, he started casting a spell at me and I gave him a big roundhouse boot to the brain pan. Dead wizard. Wow, Dragon strength is impressive, could not have done that before in one kick! Oh and the few remaining straggler guards showed up only to shoot themselves at me.
I am so pissed at myself for allowing Buck to convince me to allow him to come along. He almost got killed several times. Now I have to go home to Jordan and … She must be a mess after having Buck show up near death riddled with a dozen or two bullets.
I still cannot believe Buck ran into that room like that against that sort of firepower. I will confess I was impressed in his Golem fighting, but today he showed he is completely out of his depth in real combat and he nearly died.
May 07, 2012 21:25
As I lay here on my lousy air bed with Jordan cradling me I am trying to make sense of what happened today.Buck is apparently not the person I thought he was at all.
There is a knock at the door but I don’t want to move. There is another knock and Jordan goes to answer the door. It is Buck and he is yammering about a funky smell in his car. He leaves and I hear an odd series of thumps from outside, Jordan suddenly runs to me and says Buck just collapsed and fell down the stairs. I go out to investigate andBuck is out cold. I carry him up to his apartment and lay him down on his bed. I recall my basic first aid from boot camp and start to check him over and… My god his eyes are glowing green in a malignant sort of way that sends a chill through my spine. I back away shaken. What did they do to Buck? Is this why he did not seem like himself? Is he some fancy golem that is now breaking down? I immediately call Jack and he says he will be right over.
The stench in here is horrific from where I earlier threw up. Jordan and I start to clean up but then I realize what if that think that looked like Buck gets up? I race downstairs and grab my vest and my M4 Assault Rifle. I come up and help clean but keep a watchful gaze on the thing in Buck’s bed. We are done cleaning and now just have to wait agonizing minute after agonizing minute until Jack arrives.
The door just opens unexpectedly and Jack and a slender woman enter, the woman immediately heads for the thing on Bucks bed. Jack comes over to Jordan and I. I watch this woman walk, no wait, hover over to the thing on Buck’s bed. And is that… it is! It is hard to see under her clothes but she has a tail. I don’t want to know! I just hope she can deal with that thing on Buck’s bed. What is she doing? Oh my god she just put her hand… wrist… now arm all down his mouth!? How is this possible? And she extracts her arm and in her hand is. Oh my god I am going to be sick! Some sort of large worm with the head of a snake and those glowing green eyes! It seems very unhappy and looks absolutely disgusting. The woman seems pleased with her work and what she “caught.” She tells Jack this specimen will cover her fees and then she departs hovering away out the door… Jack departs soon thereafter. I Place a blanket on what apparently isBuck. Dear lord what the fuck was that thing! Jordan seems even more traumatized than I feel. I don’t know what else to do aboutBuck but let him rest. Jordan and I go downstairs and just curl up in each other’s arms holding one another until we fall asleep.
I wake up and go for my usual run. Oddly some asshole almost ran me over and then pulled over to yell and scream profanities at me. I try to ignore him and move on but he punched my buttons and after the last 24 hours I feel myself get angry at him, something I am not prone to at all. He suddenly fled in terror for no apparent reason. I am clearly not very intimidating… oh crap some new power! I quickly head off resuming my run before I attract more attention.
When I get home Jordan is still asleep so I setup my new laptop and practice my powers and such. Jordan is really sleeping in! I go check on her and realize she must have had some sort of night terror in her sleep and I crawl in bed with her holding her close.
At noon my delivers show up, Yay! Finally get to sleep in a real bed again. A rather nice and luxurious bed at that. I think I spent more on my furniture than Buck did on his car. Jordan scampered upstairs so she would not be in the way.
When I am done with deliveries I head upstairs and end up in a very awkward poker game with Buck and Jordan. Basically I tell Buck that everything that happened yesterday, that was simply not Buck, it was that creature inhabiting him. Not much more to say really.
I head out to Home Depot to get plumbing supplies and such. Buck and Jordan go for a drive while I am out. When we all get back Buck helps me install the plumbing for my new Hot Tub. When we finish the pizza arrives and we have music food and dancing to blow off a little steam. After a while Buck goes back to his apartment and I settle into my new Hot Tub and relax for a while. All that feels nice.
We go to bed early, tomorrow is the big day to invade the Montoya Villa and get rid of that evil bastard.
My alarm goes off at 0200 and I practically leap out of bed in excitement. I try not to wake Jordan though. I start to get dressed then give Bucky a call as I know he did not set an alarm, slacker. Of course he is not answering so I go up, get a pot and metal spoon then go wake him up in proper military fashion! Too bad I don’t have any firecrackers. Man he looks like shit. I tell him to start making breakfast and I will go get him some coffee, that finally perked him up.
After returning with coffee we eat some grilled fish. Bucky is so not a morning person, It Is a Glorious morning! I go and finish getting into my BDUs, Boots, Armor and tactical gear and pack up the guns and ammo in the magic bag Jack provided for this Op Plan. I do up any exposed skin in camo makeup. Oh my Buck is sulking because he does not have camo makeup, I am so going to remember this and I do up his face as well.
I open the door to leave the apartment and am met with a shivering Jordan, she looks so adorable! I give her a big hug and kiss before we go.
We get to the villa and do some scouting. Dear lord what are those!? The security guards are walking around with a trained three-foot Scorpion on a leash! That thing is UGLY and looks pretty nasty too. Buck is getting far too eager to just go in right now. We make some plans, I go invisible and activate my see invisibility as well so I can see my gun sights. We both teleport in and suddenly the entire villa is awash in bright lights. We must have tripped some damn magical tripwire or such.
As they say, no plan survives after first contact with the enemy.
April 30, 2012 12:48
The three of up get to this illegal sporting event, did I mention it is illegal? I really, really do not want to be here, if Jordan was not so oddly excited I would have skipped it. We get inside, Bucky got diverted elsewhere as a contender. Jordan and I get concession and then a seat near the ring.
The first bout happens between two clay golems and they knock each other around, I did not see how it finished as Jordan suddenly had my attention. Oh my god she really is an exhibitionist! I am, um not such and kind of want to hide actually but oh my god she is amazing and it is so worth it! When she is done I quickly find my clothes and get dressed feeling rather embarrassed.
Bucky is about to fight a clay golem. That thing is much larger than him and I hope he does not get hurt. The bell rings and I get up to cheer for Bucky but the battle is practically over before it begins and I am left the only one cheering to a stunned audience as Bucky just destroyed that thing in like two seconds. I quickly sit down feeling embarrassed yet again. Suddenly a large stone golems comes out and challenges Bucky, The bell sounds and there is a flurry of fists and stone flying and in a matter of second once again Bucky is triumphant. The crowd seems shocked. I have no idea if this is a big deal, other than looking big these golems seem pretty flimsy. Maybe Bucky is amazingly tough, I don’t know. I do know I should have bet more on Buck than I did, I laugh to myself. Jordan is board so time to go home, it is pretty late. Bucky decided to stay and watch the rest of the bouts.
I get up the next morning and go for my two hour run and exercises. Jordan is not up yet so I think I will surprise her, I go get one of the new sex toys we bought last night at Lovers and begin to make serious love with her. Her thing may be crowds but I like toys. I suddenly think there is an earthquake as my sleeping platform over Bucky’s bedroom is shaking oddly which is very unsettling when you have a very invasive toy in the places mine is. But wait this is Florida, they do not have earthquakes. Then I realize I can her him! What the fuck is Buck doing shaking my bedroom while I am making love with Jordan and, and oh god. I start to feel sick as I realize Buck is shaking the platform and causing the toy to move around inside me. I turn invisible and teleport down to find out what the hell Buck is doing. I find him looking right at me, he anticipated me doing this. He has pulled himself up as high as he can with a big grin on his face as I find him naked and his monster is right at face level with me like he is expecting a blowjob. The only other time I have been this close to a penis was when I was a little girl and my Uncle… Oh my god I am going to be sick. Don’t think about that, don’t think about that!
I asked Buck what the heck he was doing and he replied “Working it with your rhythm.” I was just shocked. Is he drunk, is he on drugs, what the hell! I lost it and suddenly punched him and he just mocked me and said it, “Oh that tickled” in a sexually teasing voice. I tell him to stop it and that he is crossing the line. He just makes another comment!
I go get cleaned up, dressed and call the management company and arrange for my own place. I do not know what the hell is wrong with Buck be he just crossed the line. I go to the management company and sign the lease for the apartment, warehouse in reality, on the first floor. I even pay extra so I can move right now. I then go back and get Jordan so we can go get cleaning supplies for our new place. We end up buying a lot more but we need it with an empty warehouse of an apartment to furnish.
We get back and start unloading. Buck suddenly runs out and starts to drive away with the car which is still half full from Jordan and my shopping trip. He just ran by, did not say a fucking word, started the car and started to drive off. What a fucking jerk! What the hell is wrong with him! I am so done with him.
When Buck gets back Jordan and I are going out for lunch, I do not want to be around him. Before we go he asks if I will go car shopping with him right now, what an arrogant asshole. I had already told him I was going to lunch with Jordan. Does he not care that I told him I already have plans, that I am starving and need to eat!? I tell him I’ll go with him tonight just to shut him the fuck up and leave me and Jordan alone.
Jordan and I have lunch, spend the entire afternoon furniture shopping. I just need to be away from Buck right now or I swear I will kill him. We then have dinner and head back. I did promise Buck I would go car shopping with him after all and I keep my promises. I find Buck zoned out in cyber space. Probably playing some childish game. I bet he has not done any car shopping or even has a clue where to go. And he had all afternoon. And he didn’t. Fucking inconsiderate jerk. And he expects me to just stand here waiting while he now does his research. Fuck him, I have cleaning to do. Jordan and I go down to our apartment and begin mopping. A full half hour later, and he just wanted me to stand there, Buck comes down and wants me to drop everything and go right now. I tell him no, I am going to finish mopping and that if he wants to help it go faster he can grab a brush and help. The sooner we get done the sooner we go car shopping. Oh, but Buck is too good to help us women clean. No he goes upstairs and waits while we work. Fucking asshole. Oh, he is ready and waiting when we are done to go do his precious car shopping.
We get to the car lot and Buck goes right up to a sales associate and drops down, in cash, the full price of the car. No negotiating nothing. How fucking clueless is Buck? Then when I am halfway home he calls me because he needs to buy insurance and he thinks they are ripping him off. Where the fuck is Buck’s brain? Although I had not thought about it before but I don’t have insurance myself so I will take care of that when I get home.
When I get home I help Jordan move the rest of our things downstairs. There is no way I can stay up there it just makes me feel violated by someone I thought I knew and could trust, I just want to bash a frying pan over Buck’s skull for being such a bastard. I have not felt this betrayed since my Uncle tried to rape me as a child. Oh god no! The brutality of that long forgotten day hits me like a sledgehammer and a drop to my knees retching violently at the memories washing over me. I have to get out of this room, I stagger-fall down stairs and crawl to my bed shaking and crying uncontrollably.
April 19, 2012 12:04
This Diego guy might be more problematic to pull off than I initially thought. There is very little Intel and Jack is giving us warnings we are not the first and the others, that got past the wall, have not been heard from ever again. Sounds like there may be a lot of magic traps to contend with, guess we will need to do some investigation on that and get back to Jack.
sigh And Bucky wants to be involved. He has never killed anyone; I don’t want to have that on his continence. But he is hell bent on going.
Time to do some research. Ugh… My head hurts. Can’t they just provide proper field manuals for this stuff; it’s like digging through a muddy creek for crawfish. Anyways, list is done and sent to Jack. Time to get out of this dang VR getup and get some real shopping done.
Jordan seems a bit disquieted about things. Not much of a surprise I suppose but she seems to be taking it in stride anyway. I mean as a princess she must be used to security, guns and Ops Plans right?
Bucky and I are off to the Army Surplus store then the Florida Armory (Gun Store) but I left the last two words out. Wow he is so freaking out I can barely keep a straight face. Sometimes he is just too easy.
Got that shopping done. And he wants those crazy ass shortened rifles. And he is ranting about how I should have told him to get a CWP when I got one. Hello!? He was sitting right there next to me, he could have asked. Although the thought of Bucky and a concealed weapon is a bit unsettling. Probably shoot his own right but-cheek off. And he wanted to buy and use registered guns on the Ops Plan. Hello!? Told him he needs to get one from Jack. Ok, now he is scheduling some illegal underground fight for tonight. sigh
Oh no! Wal-hell again. In and out quick! Run for it!
Bucky actually wants me to shoot him the crazy bastard. Just to prove how tough his thick scaly hide is. I am not sure whether to relish this opportunity or recoil in horror at its stupidity. And Jordan is supporting it! She says she can heal him. Fine if they both want to… Well the 9mm did penetrate, not a lot but it did go in. I think this only fed his ego. Now time to dig the bullet out! Yup, he screams like a baby.
Time to gather the gear and take Bucky down to the range and run some bullets through the guns to be sure they work and see if Bucky can really shoot. How about that, he actually knows what he is doing. I’m impressed, not that I will ever say that within his earshot.
Home again. It’s actually a bit scary that I think of this place as home already. Anyway, take to take Jordan out for dinner and some quality us time. What the heck!? Jordan wants to go see Bucky fight? I just want to go home not see some silly fight. Oh well, she seems pretty excited and that is just unnerving me. Anyway, here we are, time to take my mind off of it with a little shopping trip to Lovers before the fight.
