Rolling my eyes at the sight of my father’s name on my phone screen, I actually thought about ignoring him. After what Jacob had done to me, I wondered if my father had approved it. Knowing Jacob Sr., he’d keep calling until I answered. “Hello, this is Dr. Hale.”
“Jacob really needs your help to win the election, having you associate with those scummy bikers won’t help him.”
Shutting the bathroom door, so no one can hear me, I let my father have it. “Did Jr, tell you he beat the hell out of me last night?”
“Don’t be ridiculous, your brother would never do such a thing?”
“Of course not! He would never get his hands dirty, he’d hire someone to do it for him. SAMCRO keeps this town safe father, they do things that law enforcement can’t. It would be ashame if they found out Jr, had some one beat the hell out of me. And what would Davey think?” I ended the call, walking out into the bedroom, I threw my phone on the bed.
Sinking down to the floor, I let out a frustrated scream. Forgetting I wasn’t alone, my bedroom door swung open, Happy was standing in the door with his gun drawn. “What the hell?
“Sorry, I just talked to my dad…” I couldn’t begin to tell him my history with my family. The years of hurt, and disappointment that I’ve endured, maybe I should have stayed in Chicago.
He sat down with me on the floor. “What did he say to you?”
“Just typical Jacob Sr. shit. I’m an embarrassment to the family name, that I should help Jr, when the election….”
“How are you an embarrassment? You’re a doctor, they should be proud of you!”
I smile sadly at him. “I’ve been the black sheep of the family for as long as I can remember. My parents sent me to an all girls boarding school in Chicago during my freshmen year in high school, after I and a few others got busted for a stupid school prank. I wasn’t allowed to come home for holidays or breaks.”
“What the hell? What about your ma?”
“She did whatever Sr., told her to do. One of my teacher’s at the boarding school took me in as her own. I paid for my own way through medical school.”
I felt his hands touch my body, looking at me, he leaned in kissing me. “What about your brothers?”
“Jr., has always hated me, taken on our parent’s opinion of me, but Davey and I were close. Even when I left for school, we manged to stay in touch.”
“Why did you come back?”
“I has hoping that being a doctor, would make them proud, but some how I’m still a disappointment.” Hearing my phone ringing again, I decided to ignore it, I leaned in, my lips covering Happy’s. I felt him pull me on top of him, if I was going to be considered the black sheep of the family, I might as well as go big.
The peal of the doorbell, interrupted my plans, pulling away, Happy stood up, with me still wrapped around his body. Sitting my feet down on the floor, his hands cupped my face.
“Stay here!” I watched as he left the room. My phone started ringing again, picking it up, I frowned at Jacob’s name.
“What the hell?”
“Didn’t you lean your lesson?” I heard Happy yell from the other room, hanging up on my brother. I called Gemma, telling her I didn’t know what was happening, but Happy needed help.
The house started to fill with smoke, leaving my room, I found Happy laying in the floor unconscious. Going to the front door, I tried to open it, it wouldn’t budge.
Going to the garage, I could see the smoke was coming from there, the back door wouldn’t budge either. Picking up a kitchen chair, I threw it through the picture window in the living room.
My body screamed in pain, grabbing the blanket off the back of the couch, I padded the window sill. Going to Happy, I started to drag his body towards the window.
I could see the flames hitting the kitchen, the fire alarms were going off, I saw a bike pulling up at the curb. I pull Happy up to the window, seeing Jax and Opie running towards the house, the reached in, grabbing him. Running towards the street, that’s the last thing I remember seeing.
“I used to believe, I still do, that if you give something your all it doesn’t matter if you win or lose, as long as you’ve risked everything put everything out there. And I’ve done that. I did it my entire life. I did it with the game. But I never did it with you, I never gave you that. And I’m sorry. I know I’m on really thin ice but, when you said I didn’t need you… well last night should’ve been the biggest night of my life, and it wasn’t. It wasn’t because you weren’t there. So I just wanted to tell you, not to change your mind or keep you from going, but just so you know, that I know, that I do need you.”
this is gonna sound shady and i'm really not trying be that petty in 2017 but I just remembered that there was a football game when Beyoncé debuted Formation at the Super Bowl last year. I dead ass don't know who won or was even playing. I just assumed Beyoncé won and she definitely did win
AGAKSHD inm dead darnell!! But I feel you though.
I remember last year I couldn’t even pay attention to the second half of the game because I was too busy picking up the remnants of my wig. Bey wasn’t even right for what she did to me that night
@jackantonoff: my favorite pic from last night. we wrote and worked on 1989 in the tiniest spaces. a lot of time over voice notes and e mail — it really encourages me that those small dream like ideas between friends can become album of the year. winning a grammy for records you make the same way you did when u were a kid is important to me.
Why This Election is Already Fundamentally Undemocratic Because of “Superdelegates”
I don’t care whether you support Sanders or Clinton, this should make your blood boil either way. Please read it.
In case you’re confused about how the democratic primaries work, you’re not alone. Essentially how it works is that states award the delegates to the candidates based on the amount of support they get per state during the state primaries. This is why Hillary Clinton did not really “win” in Iowa last night; the amount of votes for both candidates were nearly equal, and so both candidates shared the state’s delegates (Clinton got a few more). A candidate needs a certain amount of delegates to officially become the nominee of the party, and so the primaries help determine the delegates and overall support for each candidate before the convention, where the nominee is officially decided. Sounds simple enough now, right?
Wrong, unfortunately. State primaries only decide 80% of the delegates before the convention. The remaining 20% are decided by “superdelegates,” delegates that are automatically seated by the party before the primaries even begin. They are usually seated based on rank, and include senators, members of the house of representatives, and members of the DNC/Democratic National Convention. The supposed point of superdelegates is to act as tiebreakers during a primary nomination in order to prevent a brokered convention, in which the party cannot agree on a candidate. This is not how they have ever worked, however.It is possible for superdelegates to declare which candidate they intend to support even before the state primary process begins, and that’s exactly what has happened. Take a look at the image above. Tell me, does this look fair to you?
Before the primaries even began in Iowa last night, Hillary Clinton had already been pledged support from 362 superdelegates (party ELITES), giving her about 15% of the 2,382 delegates she needs to win the election. The results in Iowa were very close, and so Clinton took away 23 delegates while Sanders took away 21. The problem is that only 8 superdelegates have pledged themselves to Sanders, meaning that Clinton is beating Sanders among superdelegates by a 45 to 1 margin. Keep in mind that these superdelegates are party elites, not delegates that were allocated proportionally based on votes within states. This is all already happening before the other states have even been allowed to choose which candidate they prefer.
Back in 2008 when the primary was close between Clinton and Obama, Clinton begged the undeclared superdelegates to support her so that she could win the nomination, regardless of popular vote. There are less undeclared superdelegates right now than near the end of the primary in 2008. Clinton supporters, do you believe us Sanders supporters now when we say we’ve been treated unfairly by the DNC? Do you really think it’s okay for party elites to be playing kingmaker like this before the primaries even really begin? Should members of the establishment have this much power to decide primaries, especially in cases like this where you have clear establishment vs. non-establishment candidates? Does this look like democracy to you?
Harvest Moon. Last night on our way home from the art exhibit, ( I did not win but had some really good feedback so it was productive), we saw a Harvest Moon. It was big but not quite this big but somehow this seem more creative.
