Here’s to my strong girls.
My powerful girls.
My ruthlessly dedicated girls.

The ones who stand up for themselves and for what’s right.
The ones who fight and fight hard.
The ones who fall but pick themselves up and never quit.
Striving for the best in themselves and in the world.

Here’s to my strong girls.
My powerful girls.
My ruthlessly dedicated girls.

COMING JUNE 2018

Ellis Grant glanced up towards the flickering white light, it had been playing up for days now and the more she looked it, the more it infuriated her. She’d been in the facility for longer than she cared to remember, in fact she had lost count of the number of days long ago. Her days, which were once filled with warm sunlight and the fresh air of the outdoors, were now regimented and gruelling, filled with artificial light and the sterile scent of hospital corridors. 

“Elle…” Owen Grady’s voice tore Ellis’ attention from the flickering light and she stared at him blankly. She didn’t speak much these days, in fact she did very little. “Please…” Owen pleaded, “…just try.” 

If she could’ve found it in herself, Ellis would have laughed. Try she thought. As though it were that simple. As though she hadn’t been trying since the moment they brought her out of the coma that they had kept her in for weeks. She’d done her trying, and she’d gotten precisely nowhere. 

The two of them stared at each other intensely for short while before eventually Owen sighed and stood up, turning away from Ellis and walking towards the window on the opposite side of the room. He left her in her wheelchair at the end of the parallel walking bars that had been her nemesis for the past couple of weeks and looked out towards the entrance gates. When he caught sight of a figure, heading towards the large wrought iron gates Owen smirked. Heading towards the rehabilitation centre was a tall, thin, man with greying hair. He was dressed entirely in black: black shirt, black trousers, black socks, black shoes, and walked with an air of self confidence like nothing Owen had ever seen before. He neared the building, a sarcastic grim reaper, there to pull Ellis from the slump she presently found herself in. 

“Oh you’re in for it now Grant.” 

mini-rant:

im sick and tired of seeing these posts bitching about how unrealistic and “misogynistic” it was that claire dearing wore heels and ran in heels during jurassic world

YO SHUT THE FUCK UP AND LEMME LAY DOWN SOME SHIT FOR YOU

here’s a picture both from the movie and a movie poster of the shoes that claire wears in the film:

after consulting with some people, these heels seem to be around 2-3 inches. now when i saw the movie i was beyond thrilled that she wore her heels the entire time. i thought it kicked ass because damn that takes some real strength and balance. however after seeing people bitching about how unrealistic that was, i got pissed off. and here’s why:

i’m a woman who fucking loves high heels. in fact, i wear them almost every day. without my heels, i stand at 5'2". when i put on my everyday heels, i stand at 5′7″, adding 5 inches to my height. now i dunno how long claire has been wearing heels (we don’t get enough insight to her character to know, nor is it really important) but i’ve been wearing heels for about 5 years now (my heels have always ranged from 4 to 5 inches tall). i have walked and yes, i have even ran on gravel, mulch, dirt, and concrete in my 4-5 inch heels. i dont fall and i dont lose balance, in fact, i run better in my heels than i do in my flats or sneakers! so why is it so unrealistic that claire, a woman who has probably worn heels longer than i, ran in heels 2 inches shorter???? ive also seen people say that they would’ve fallen off or get stuck in the mud when they were in the mud/jungle area. whelp, here’s another fun fact for ya folks: when wearing a heel that PROPERLY fits your foot, it’s really difficult for them to pulled off/stuck in mud (and this is coming from a girl who had to walk across a muddy golf course in stilettos to get to her prom)! the heels would get all muddy and scuffed and you’d definitely sink into the mud but that’s it.

in short RUNNING IN HIGH HEELS ISN’T UNREALISTIC YES PLEASE KNOW THIS I WILL EVEN POST A VIDEO OF ME RUNNING IN MY 5 INCH HEELS IN THE SAME TERRAIN TO PROVE THIS TO YALL

“…and when one of them meets the other half, the actual half of himself, whether they be a lover of youth or a lover of another sort, the pair are lost in an amazement of love and friendship and intimacy and one will not be out of the other’s sight, as I may say, even for a moment…” Plato.

INSATIABLE - The Epilogue

“Have you heard anything?” It was the first time that either one of them had spoken in a number of hours. Her husband actually flinched at the sound of a voice that wasn’t coming from the television set. Without taking his eyes off the screen the elder man shook his head, no. 

 “Not since I called her yesterday.” He responded quietly, after a moment’s thought. “I should have known something was wrong.”
