Note: Theres a scene below that belongs to Sarah J Maas. I take no claim over it. I simply rewrote it a bit to fit my story. Enjoy!
Summary: He thinks she wants nothing to do with him. She thinks he can’t remember her. Aelin and Rowan were friends once upon a time. But high school drove them apart. However, one night - one party - is about to change not only their lives, but the lives of their friend as well.
Aelin knew what this day was going to hold. She could already tell. It was going to be horrible. Drama-filled. Downright dreadful. And here was why: The Havilliard’s were coming.
Aelin had zero problems with Dorian coming over for dinner. It was the rest of his family the she’d rather leave outside. His brother, Hollin, was a little devil. Aelin always wanted a sibling (Elide and Aedion didn’t count) but every time she saw Hollin, she couldn’t help but be grateful it was just her. Then there was Georgina Havilliard, who had her nose so far in the air Aelin was sure she could see her brain. And of course, Mr. Havilliard, Dorian’s father. He refused to be called anything but Mr. Havilliard, never mind the fact their families had been friends forever. Aelin wasn’t even sure she knew Mr. Havilliard’s actual name.
But the Havilliard’s weren’t the only thing about the day that was horrible. Because Aedion and his family were coming over also.
Cops have been getting a lot of heat lately. There’s a lot of shitty officers out there and at the same time there are a lot of great men and women wearing the uniform but unfortunately only the shit heads make the headlines. The one thing we can all agree on though is their great taste in pastries. Cops always have the nose for the best doughnuts in town and it’s very rare to see one at a lowly place like Dunkin’ Donuts unless it’s the last possible choice. This beer would be one of those rare shops serving up only the best glazed gooey treats that’s flavor could only be described to be as good as fast forwarding to all of Rosario Dawson’s topless scenes in Alexander. This beer is a damn delicious porter and so far, Evil Twin has yet to disappoint me in any of the brews I’ve tasted. This starts with a sugary chocolate silk taste with some of that coffee bitterness creeping through in the middle with some light vanilla almond milk joining the crew at the end to make for one unique and flavorful porter. This beer is an absolute beast and if you haven’t tried this yet then you are fucking missing out. This is a must try for all porter lovers or just anyone in love with the big blacks and as far as the entry level beer drinker, this is a great starting point due to it’s sweetness and bold flavors. Just be careful kiddos, this beer clocks in at 11.5% so don’t get too wasted. Enjoy!
The Bell House’s Beer for Beasts event on Saturday—a benefit for the Humane Society of New York—is sold out (bummer). But if you want to help the organization in another way, consider adopting one of these adorable animals, all of whom are currently in the Humane Society’s care. (We’re kind of in love with every single cat and dog featured, especially Ms. Pips.)
This Saturday, we went to the Beer for Beasts fundraiser, at The Bellhouse. It benefitted the Humane Society of NY, and it was sponsored by Sixpoint- awesome local brewery.
The good thing was the beers were awesome! However, I was disappointed about how difficult it was to get anything vegan! The irony of the people eating pork while they were supporting cats and dogs made me truly sad. And no one even seemed to notice!
I was luckily able to get a black bean taco, but I had to ask to hold the cheese, which was being thrown on automatically. And that was the only option I could eat! There was pastrami, sausage sandwiches, pizza covered in cheese, tacos with pork or chicken…but nothing vegan! I just don’t understand how so many people who claim to be animal lovers could be mindlessly eating food that is the direct result of the torture and abuse of animals.
Anyway, The Bellhouse is a fun venue, and I would go back for another event. And Sixpoint did not let me down. But the lack of respect, compassion, and empathy for pigs, cows, and chickens left a bad taste in my mouth.
okay so this happened. The illuminati all handle the end of the world in different ways, Banner has a few beers with the hulk, Beast talks to himself and then goes to read a book, T'challa goes to hang out with Beast, Black Bolt screams and cries with his dog, Reed visits all of his family, Stephen Strange drinks tea and Tony pours a bunch of shots, doesn’t drink them and then gets ready to kill himself as the world ends. It just made me really sad. There are a few things I would rather he do in the face of his imminent demise.
