THIS ACTUALLY HAPPENED AND I AM SO PROUD OF MYSELF
Annoying guy: “Do you speak German?”
Guy: “No you don’t.”
Me: “Okay, whatever.”
Guy: “Wait, you really speak German? Sprechen Sie Deutsch?”
Me: “You don’t have to ask me the same question twice in a row. Don’t you know how to say anything else in German?”
Guy: “Ein Bier, bitte!” *cracks up laughing*
Me: “Seh ich aus wie ne Kellnerin oder was? Wenn du nen Drink willst… hol dir selbst einen runter.”
He said “One beer, please!” (a classic line for tourists who don’t know how to say anything else in German) and I said “Do I look like a waitress? If you want a drink, go get one yourself.” Except the particular way I said “go get one yourself” also happens to mean the German equivalent of “Go f*** yourself.” (Literally: “go jerk yourself off”)
It’s been three weeks since your date with Scott and his way-too-early marriage proposal. Since then, he’s been sending you emails like usual, but they were more intense poems and him just straight out explaining how much he loved you and what your future was going to be like with him. He wanted two children, a condo in Florida, and you could be a stay-at-home mom while we worked. You were flattered but also creeped out by these emails. You deleted the creepy ones and saved the normal poems. You assumed that maybe Scott was very antisocial and didn’t know how to properly date someone.
Then, the phone calls started.
At first, they were only during the day, one or two at a time. You’d answer and the only answer would be heavy breathing before the caller would hang up. You were creeped out and a little scared but nothing too terrifying. Slowly, the calls got more often, resulting in you getting about four a day and instead of heavy breathing, it was Scott’s voice, singing all your favorite songs for about a minute and then stopping, hanging up. You were confused and a little creeped out. How did Scott get your number? Did Ally give him it? You had called Ally and asked, her answer making your blood run cold.
Imagine being with Juice and having to leave him and then finding him again 5 years later
It had been a week since I had become a dad and I was loving it. Sure, I had Gemma and the guys helping me out and everything until I could figure it out for myself. I was getting better at it though. She was actually going to bed on time for me now without me having to call Uncle Chibs to come help.
It didn’t bother Chibs to come help in fact all of her uncles were always excited to come see her. In fact, I was currently laughing my ass off while watching Happy having a tea party with Rosie. They both had on tiaras and sparkly bracelets. I had made sure to get plenty of pictures of this moment. I even got a picture of Happy covering Rosie’s eyes and flipping me off. I had sent all of the club the pictures and Happy threatened to gut me.
Someone knocked on the door and I stopped laughing long enough to go and answer it. I opened the door and Tig and Chibs were standing on the other side.
“What are you guys doing here?” I asked.
“Oh, you think we’d miss seeing this in person?” Tig asked as they went to the kitchen to see Happy.
“Oh brother what have ya gotten yourself into?” Chibs laughed.
“Shut up.” Happy crossed his arms over his chest.
“Uncle Chibs! Uncle Tiggy!” Rosie shouted as she got down from the table and ran over to hug them. They smiled and Chibs picked her up and hugged her. He passed her over to Tig and he hugged her too.
“Hey doll.” Tig smiled as he set her back down.
“Are you here to join my tea party?” She smiled at them. They both looked at each other and gulped.
“Sorry love but I don’t think we can.” Chibs said. Rosie’s bottom lip quivered.
“Pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeee.” She begged and looked up at them with wide eyes. They groaned.
“Alright doll, whatever you want.” Tig said and Rosie smiled brightly. Happy and I chuckled. Chibs glared at me.
“Sweetheart I think your da wants to join too.” Chibs smirked at me and I glared at him.
“Oh! Come on daddy!” She went back to the table and we all followed and the tea party started. It honestly wasn’t too bad until Tig noticed my nails.
“Dude! Your nails!” Tig laughed. I groaned and looked down at the blue nail polish that I had forgotten about. Rosie had wanted to paint nails last night and I had to talk her out of using pink.
“Shut up.” I grumbled and everyone laughed.
“Don’t they look pretty? I did them myself!” Rosie said happily.
“They are beautiful lass.” Chibs said as he leaned over and kissed her head softly. Rosie smiles brightly.
“Yeah they are great, doll!” Tig reached over and ruffled her hair playfully. Happy gave a grunt and a nod. Which usually meant he approved. Rosie was very happy with her uncle’s approval. We continued on with the tea party for a little while until Chibs got a call from Clay for all of us to come in right away. He told Chibs that Gemma was on her way to pick up Rosie so I could use my bike. We put away Rosie’s tea party things and I packed her a bag just incase it got too late.
As soon as I finished packing the bag, someone knocked on the door. Tig let Gemma in and Rosie went up to give her aunt Gemma a hug. Gemma smiled and picked Rosie up.
“Ready to go sweetheart?” Gemma asked Rosie. Rosie nodded and Gemma grabbed her bag from me. “Give daddy a kiss darlin.”
“Bye daddy!” Rosie leaned over and kissed my cheek. I smiled and kissed her head.
“Bye princess. Be good for Aunt Gemma.” I told her.
“Yes daddy. I love you.” Rosie told me.
“I love you too princess.” I told her. Gemma smiled and walked out of the house and to her car. We all followed Gemma back to the clubhouse and went to church. Apparently some shit had gone down with the Mayans and we were going to strike back.
It was a good thing I had packed Rosie an overnight bag because I didn’t end up getting back home until 4 in the morning. It took longer than it was supposed to because a couple of Mayans came from nowhere. Some of us got beat up pretty bad so Chibs had to patch up Jax, Tig, and I. Nothing serious but we had a couple of deep cuts. My face was more bruised then theirs but luckily nothing was broken. After I got back home, I immediately went to bed.
The next morning I woke up to knocking on the door. I groaned and got up. I went to the door and opened it to find Gemma and Rosie. I smiled at them.
“Hey princess, did you have fun?” I asked. Rosie didn’t answer at first and just stared at me with wide eyes.
“Daddy are you hurt?” She asked. I had forgotten all about my bruised face.
“Oh yeah princess. Daddy’s fine. I just had a little accident.” I shrugged and smiled at her. I took Rosie and her bag from Gemma and she kissed me on the cheek and left. I brought Rosie and her bag inside and went to the living room.
“Did you eat breakfast princess?” I asked as I set her bag down. She shook her head no.
“What would you like?” I asked her.
“Cereal.” She said softly. I looked at her confused.
“You okay princess? You are being very quiet.” I set her down on the couch and sat on the coffee table in front of it.
“Daddy why do you have ouchies?” Rosie asked.
“Well you know how daddy works with you uncles?” I asked her and she nodded. “Well sometimes our job can make us have ouchies.”
“Oh does mommy’s job make her have ouchies too?” She asked.
“Not that I know of. Why do you ask princess?” I looked at her confused.
“Mommy has a lot of ouchies too.” She said.
“What?” I asked.
“Mommy has a lot of ouchies. Right before we came to find you mommy was in the… the um… place with the doctors and nurse ladies because of her ouchies.”
“The hospital? Mommy was in the hospital?” I asked. My mind was reeling from this information.
“Yeah the hospital! I got to play with a nice nurse lady while old daddy and mommy were talking.” Rosie told me.
“Old daddy?” My fists clenched.
“Yeah after old daddy left the hospital is when mommy told me about you. She said we needed to find you so I wasn’t around old daddy while she went away for her job.” Rosie said.
“Princess what was old daddy like?” I asked.
“Umm well he always brought me candy and toys when he got home from work but he was mean to mommy. He yelled and made her cry a lot.” Rosie said. I got up fast.
“Okay princess, I have to call Aunt Gemma and see if she will watch you again for a bit. I have to talk to your uncle’s about something” I said fast while grabbing out my phone and calling Gemma back fast.
“Everything alright sweetheart?” Gemma asked as she picked up.
“I’m not sure and I really hate to ask you this but do you think you could watch Rosie for a bit while I talked to the boys?” I asked her.
“Yeah sure. I’ll turn around and come get her. Be there in a couple minutes sweetheart.” Gemma said and hung up. I put my phone away and went back to Rosie.
“Aunt Gemma will be here soon and you and her can go get some breakfast alright princess?” I asked her.
“Alright daddy. Tell everyone I said hi!” Rosie smiled.
“Will do princess.” I kissed her forehead. A couple minutes later Gemma knocked on the door and I went to open it.
“Well not really honestly but I need to discuss it with the guys.” I said and pulled out some money from my wallet. “Here, take this and you two go get breakfast. I really appreciate everything that you’ve done for Rosie and I.”
“Sweetheart you really don’t have to do that. I love watching over Rosie.” Gemma smiled.
“Still take the money as my way of saying thank you.” I said as I handed it to her.
“Fine but no more of this.” Gemma said as she took it.
“Whatever you say.” I smiled as I went to the living room to get Rosie. Rosie smiled and I hugged her. She left with Gemma and I called the guys and told them to meet me at church. I went out and hopped on my bike. Most of the guys were already at the clubhouse since we had a late night. Once I got there, I practically ran inside.
“Juicey, what’s all this about? You sounded upset on the phone.” Chibs asked while looking at me in concern.
“I need everyone here before I talk about it.” I told him and he nodded.
“Aye, we are just waiting on Jax and Clay. Everyone else stay in the dorms last night.” He told me.
“Good.” I nodded. After about 15 minutes Jax and Clay were finally here and Church started.
“Now Juice, why did you call everyone here?” Clay asked and everyone looked at me.
“I need to go find Y/N now.” I said to them. Everyone looked surprised.
“We agreed on two weeks and it’s only been one son.” Piney said.
“Rosie told me some things today and the way they are adding up it isn’t good.” I told them.
“What she tell you.” Tig asked. I told them about the conversation that Rosie and I had this morning.
“This guy has been hurting Y/N for god knows how long and who knows what he is going to do to her because she brought Rosie to me. It might already be too late but I need to try and get to her before I lose her.” I said to them.
“We’re here for you brother.” Jax said and patted me on the shoulder.
“Let’s vote, time for a road trip to go and get Juice’s old lady back?” Clay asked. Everyone agreed and we worked out who was staying behind and who was going. Piney and Half sack were going to stay behind and help Gemma while the rest of us went to Washington.
“Juice let’s go and talk to Gemma so she can watch Rosie for you while we are gone.” Clay said as he brought the gavel down. I nodded and waited for Clay as everyone cleared out. Once he was ready, we left and went to Clay and Gemma’s house. Gemma and Rosie were in the kitchen baking cookies when we walked in.
“Daddy!” Rosie smiled.
“Hey princess.” I kissed her head. “I need to talk to Aunt Gemma for a minute so Uncle Clay is going to go put some cartoons on for you.”
“Okay daddy.” She smiled and went with Clay into the living room.
“What’s up sweetheart?” Gemma looked at me in concern, I explained the situation to her and she nodded.
“Can Rosie stay with you while we go get Y/N?” I asked her.
“Of course hon. You know Rosie always has a place here with us.” Gemma said. I smiled and hugged her.
“Thanks Gem.” I said.
“No problem sweetheart.” Gemma said. “When do you leave?”
“In about two hours.” I said. “The boys are getting things around and we are going to meet up at the clubhouse.”
“Okay, do you know how long you guys will be gone for?” Gemma asked.
“Not sure a couple of days at least.” I told her. She nodded. “I need to run her license plate number and see exactly where we are going though. I’ll go get Rosie’s things right after.”
“Okay sweetheart.” Gemma said and I went to sit down at the table. I take out my laptop and start my search. After about 10 minutes I get the address.
“Clay! I found it!” I yelled into the living room. Clay comes into the dining room.
“Where is she?” He asked.
“Seattle. I have the address that the car is registered to right here.” I said as I wrote it down.
“Good. The sooner we find her, the sooner you can kill this bastard, and the sooner you can bring her home.” Clay said. My hands clenched at the thought of this guy touching her.
“Yeah, I need her back.” I said and I looked at Rosie who was in the living room watching cartoons. “We need her back.” Clay patted me on the back.
“We’ll get her.” He said.
“I have to get Rosie her things and I’m going to take her out for lunch before we leave.” I told him and he nodded.
“You can take Gemma’s car if you want.” Clay said.
“Thanks that would be nice.” I told him and he went to grab the keys for me. I went to the living room.
“Hey princess, you want to go get some lunch with daddy?” I asked.
“Yes!” Rosie smiled and got up. I took her hand in mine.
“Tell Aunt Gemma and Uncle Clay bye.” I said to her.
“Bye Aunt Gemma and Uncle Clay!” Rosie went and gave them hugs.
“Bye hon. I’ll see you in a bit.” Gemma said as she hugged her back. Clay ruffled her hair.
“We will be back in a bit.” I told them and we left. Rosie and I went to lunch before going back home. Once we were home we packed up some of her stuff to take to Gemma’s. After we had enough for her to stay there a couple of days, we left and went back to Gemma and Clay’s. I parked Gemma’s car and Rosie and I went inside. I knocked on the door and Gemma let us in.
“Hey beautiful, ready to have some girl time with your Aunt Gemma?” Gemma asked Rosie.
“Yes!” Rosie said excitedly. I smiled and kissed Rosie on the head.
“I’ll see you in a couple of days and I might even bring a surprise back for you.” I told Rosie.
“Ooo! Okay daddy! I’ll see you then. I love you.” Rosie told me. She kissed my cheek and I smiled and hugged her.
“I love you too princess.” I held her close for a second longer. “I’ll be back home soon.”
“Okay daddy.” Rosie nodded and I let her go. I got up and looked at Clay.
“Ready?” I asked him.
“Yeah, love ya Gem.” He said as he leaned over and kissed her.
“Love you too.” She said as she kissed him back. “Love you too Juice.”
“I love you too Gemma.” I replied and I hugged her. Clay and I left after we finished our goodbyes. We went to the clubhouse and all the other guys were there already. Once everyone had all their stuff around we got on our bikes and headed out. I was going to get you back, no matter what.

Alright. I’ve gotten a few asks like this already. Now listen up guys, I’m going to tell you a story from VegasCon 2016. I kept this story to myself for a long time because it was personal to me, and I didn’t feel like sharing with everyone. But I want to just put out another good story about Jared.
Ok so I was really really nervous when I got into the photo op room for Jared. My body had gone numb and I was shaking bad. This nice lady behind me was trying to calm me down and had me hold her hand, and a few volunteers walked up and were were asking if I was ok. No matter how much they tried to calm me down, It wasn’t working. 3 people behind Jared I just started crying. A lot. And I didn’t want to cry in my photo op with Jared but as hard as I tried to, I couldn’t stop.
One volunteer asked if I would like her to walk me up to the Jared when it was my turn. I said yes, so she did. Jared immediately looked down at me when I got there and gripped both my hands really tightly. He asked my name right away and I told him it was Caitlin. He then proceeded to ask where I was from, if I was in high school or college, if I liked it there, etc. Because the photo ops have to go really fast, I was definitely not expecting anything like this, but he was such a sweetheart and just kept talking to me all while holding my hands.
I was crying the entire time he was asking me questions. I told him he was my hero. He told me I was very pretty and sounded so sincere. He hugged me for so long and told me to keep my head up, and finally we posed for the photo. After it was taken he hugged me again and the people in the room clapped. Then he walked me to the table in the room and introduced me to Cliff who asked if I wanted water and a chair and what not. He didn’t go back until he made sure I was okay, and my heart was pounding so fast and was and swelling so much with respect for this man.
Later on for autographs I was close to the end of the autograph line, and I had a drawing for him to sign. Immediately when I got up there, he looked at me and just said “Caitlin.” He didn’t even see what he was singing for me yet. I apologized for crying during photos and he refused to have me apologize for that. I nodded a little and started to tell him this very short speech I had planned out, but I said a few words and couldn’t get any farther before he got up and hugged me for a full minute. He wouldn’t let go, and finally when he did, he looked down at me and told me thank you. He said he was so glad that I was in /his/ life. He then hugged me again and said I was incredible and my smile is beautiful. I told myself I wouldn’t cry again but after he said all that I was sobbing again. After that, he looked to see what he was signing for me. When he saw it and realized I drew it, he looked astounded, and his friends and the bodyguards there were all crowding around after he beckoned them all over, and some even took pictures on their phones. He put an arm around me and started to introduce me to everyone like we just knew eachother and I was completely baffled as to why he would so this. He then asked if he could take a picture with me and the drawing, which was against the rules, but I of course agreed and when we took the pictures I was shaking so so hard. He then personalized the autograph for me with almost an entire paragraph and apologized for “ruining” my drawing with his “chicken-scratch” handwriting. He asked if he was going to see me again and then hugged me once more. When I finally left he blew me a kiss and smiled so wide, and I of course had to grin back, even though I was in tears again.
My point is guys, yes, this man has flaws. I do not agree with everything he does, or says. But I still look up to him, and I still admire him, and that’s never going to change. He’s done so much for me and I know he’s done so much for others too, and I love and respect him so much. So if you want to unfollow me, go ahead, that’s fine. Just please stop sending me hate about him.
Remus: Remus was friends with Lily first, before James’ crush even became apparent. Their personalities mirrored each others’, which was why they got along so well. James was extremely jealous of their relationship at first, scoffing as he watched them exchange silent snickers when the other made a snarky remark. And when the rumor spread that they were dating, he was absolutely furious. It took Remus almost a month to get James to talk to him again. They understood each other. Sometimes, Remus swore she understood him more than his best friends.
Sirius: Sirius swore he would hate Lily for all of eternity. “I don’t understand what you see in her, mate,” he would tell James, watching her with judging eyes. But one night, like many nights, Sirius is unable to sleep and heads to the common room to allow himself to breathe for a while, when he notices a familiar head of red hair belonging to a girl seated in front of the fire, curled up in a knitted blanket. “Evans…” he grumbles, collapsing onto the couch. “Go away,” she sniffs, not turning to face him. “You alright?” Her left hand raises, revealing an already torn open envelope. “My sister hates me.” He laughs, getting up from the couch and seating himself next to her. “Try having an entire family that hates you.” On that night, Sirius became one of the closest friends Lily ever had.
James: James and Lily loved each other, yes, but their relationship was built off of so much more than that. She hates him until sixth year, but he comes back from summer holiday a seemingly new person. Or perhaps she just never noticed it when she was still friends with Snape. But he’s nice? And he’s kind of handsome in the way he speaks with his hands, and those little tufts of hair that stand up straight no matter how hard he tries to push them down. His glasses are always falling off his nose, and his eyes are this wonderful shade of gold and- “Oh my god, Lily, you like him.” “I do not!” They remain friends for most of sixth year until Lily can’t handle it anymore and kisses him before a Quidditch game. James brings out the best and the worst in Lily, but he helps her to accept the parts of her that she doesn’t love about herself. They’re built on love, and trust, and communication. They hold each other together. They’re each other’s superglue. And when Harry is born, he is the fan that dries it.
Peter: Peter Pettigrew listened. Listened when nobody else would. In times when Lily was furious or heartbroken or stressed, he would sit her down, and he would listen. She could rant for hours on end, but Peter was still listening. He never seemed bored, or unhappy to be there. He would put everything he had aside to just listen. This applied to everybody he knew, even if not well. “I don’t tell you thank you enough, Peter,” she would tell him. “You’re really great, you know that?” He would blush and tell her not to thank him. That everybody needs somebody that will just listen. He was the most trustworthy of the boys. Lily could tell him all her secrets, and he would keep them. He was the most trustworthy person she’d known. Which was why it hurt so much the way things ended.
