lady was sat on the grass in a nearby park, head tilted up as she watched the stars twinkle brightly in the sky. her lips curved upwards into a smile. she knew she should probably be inside, but she was human now and she could actually go out, not worry about not wearing a collar and getting caught by the pound. it was nice. “how pretty.” she whispered, brown orbs still focused on the night sky.
The memory of him being kidnapped had long faded into dust. He had been walking Winston. He did that every day just before dusk, walking him to the store, buying stuff for dinner and walking back to cook, eat, shower, read a while and then go to bed.
But now, Winston had been given to his dad for safe keeping. Jason hadn’t been seen for almost a year. For almost a year, he’d wake up, scared and in pain, told that his pain would be used as a tool. But a tool for what?
Mal was the only one who knew how to look for him in that half of the city. And when he found him, it had practically been gift wrapped. Jason lay, limp, gagged, tied up, on the cold ground. He was bloody and hurt and barely hanging onto consciousness. He was cold to the touch, but no longer shivered.
Soundwaves AU where Cisco ended up working for a different company other than S.T.A.R. Labs in Starling City and, as these things just happen there, got into trouble when his company tried to frame him for accidents that occurred on the jobsites. Laurel defended him in court while she was still working at CNRI because she believed his innocence.
After she found out about Oliver being the Arrow she recommended Cisco join the team, knowing his technical expertise would be valuable and how much he just wanted to help people. Cisco often stayed with Felicity back at the Arrow cave while everyone was working and it became obvious that he had a crush on Laurel.
When Laurel began taking on the mantle of Black Canary, Cisco was her biggest supporter to do so and after she got hurt badly he built her the Canary Cry. About a month after that he was working up the courage to ask her out (without it sounding like he wasn’t serious about this) when Laurel beat him to it. They’ve been dating (and happy) ever since.
you can never trust how many hours i’ve put into a game because one of the worst habits i have is finding the most aesthetically pleasing spots to sit my character in and then leaving them there for an hour+ while I do other shit
“You were supposed to be a side effect of the drugs”
The first thing coming to his mind is a
string of colourful curses. Because it was not supposed to be like this. It was
supposed to be different now. It was supposed to be gone. He ponders for a
short while if he should comment on the bruises, but decides against it. He’s
going to find out who gave them to him soon enough. Same goes for the hair and
eyes. His gaze quickly sweeps the other three faces looking at him, before he
takes off in an –admittedly hurried- attempt to get the hell out of there. And
away from him.
Despite his short legs he’s the first one
out of the door and after getting rid of those damned clothes that made up all
of his possessions for the last few weeks he makes his way towards his brother
and cousin and with that towards his car. If those idiots don’t stop staring at
him soon he’s going to have to put his fist through one of their faces. Maybe
he’s just going to do that to whoever was stupid enough to put that bruise on the star striker’s face.
Against his will his eyes find the other
bruised boy again, but they don’t linger. He has to get a grip on himself. He
just has to come to terms with the fact that nothing has changed. That this was
never just a side effect of his drugs. He slides into his seat. The keys
dropped into his hand are warm. He tries not to care.
There’s a pained hiss coming from the rear
seats. A hurried Sorry, I’m sorry, I didn’t-
and an answering mumble pretending that It’s
fine tells him everything he needs to know. He silently damns them both to
hell and back. One for never using his fucking brain. The other for always
insisting that he’s fine.
His patience finds an end as soon as his
cousin tries to talk to him. He drowns him out by turning the radio on loud
enough to hope to drown his own thoughts out, too.
Lawrence: Joel’s bodyguard. A little salty about the whole job description. Sure he’s tough and definitely trained and the guy for the job but he’s dealt with literally the worst clients. He always gets the rich, demanding ones. Burnie purposely gives him the hard jobs because he knows Law will do his job without complaining and put up with the client. He sees as the only goal of his job is to keep his client physically safe. It’s not until he’s assigned to Joel does he start to understand that not only is the physical safety of his client important, but also the mental and emotional too.
Joel: Previously put in the hospital twice before his brother hired a bodyguard for him. First hospitalization was by his abusive boyfriend, the second time was after his attempted suicide after his asshole boyfriend left him. Though he’s estranged with his rich, high-class family, his brother hired a bodyguard to watch over him in exchange for not having to be sent to therapy. Joel is not happy to have a bodyguard, but he’d rather have one than talk to a shrink and possible confront his family about his sexual preferences and shitty love life. He lives in a crappy apartment by himself despite his high social standing and wealth because he doesn’t think he deserves better.
Sean Poole: Diagnosed with severe OCD. He counts things in threes therefore he insisted that he have two bodyguards (Adam and Matt). He almost drives them up the wall by his insistence at things in threes. SPoole’s situation is similarly like a witness protection program. The “seen something he shouldn’t have” situation. Little does he know, despite Adam’s complaining about how troublesome and tiring his quirks and OCD habits are, Adam completely adores him. Matt may seem strict and 1000% only concerned with his safety, but he’s also just as fuck as Adam.
Adam: Bodyguard with a relaxed, nonchalant attitude. Everyone thinks he never takes his job seriously when in reality he’s giving everyone a quick double check, always noting if anyone is suspicious or a danger. He moves fast despite his uncaring outer appearance (and his resting bitch face syndrome). He works in partnership with Matt Peake, sharing their client, Spoole. They start the job around the time where Spoole’s OCD is getting worse and worse and end up grounding him and being the reason why he eventually bit by bit, copes better.
Matt: Bodyguard- it’s practically the family business. If anything, he’s the most serious about his job. Unlike Bruce who gives in to James’ begging to go places and have fun, Matt takes Spoole’s safety seriously. In comparison, Adam and Matt are actually just as serious about their job. However, Matt actually seems serious about his job. Him and Adam work well together, especially when their concern for Spoole starts to increase as Spoole’s condition gets worse and worse. They know it’s not part of their job description to care for Spoole in a emotional sense, but they can’t help but worry. Matt had a harder time accepting it though, whereas Adam has always been aware of the fact that emotional health is just as important as physical health.
James: Comes from a wealthy family. He’s a yolo kind of guy and deaf in both ears. He wears hearing aids, but often takes them out because of his dislike for them. It drives Bruce crazy because Bruce doesn’t know ASL (even though after a week or two of James’ constant taking them off, he enrolls in a course just in case).
“You need to wear your aids in case I need to yell at you that you’re in danger”
“Nah I won’t be in danger”
“WHY DID YOUR FAMILY HIRE ME THEN”
“… well i’m not gonna lie i’m a attractive guy maybe it’s to keep the fangirls from smothering me on accident I’m so popular.”
“YOU’RE IN TROUBLE WITH THE MOB THEY’RE OUT FOR YOUR BLOOD, JAMES”
“oh.. there’s that too.”
In all honestly, James doesn’t wear his aids because he hates having his disability out in the open for everyone to see. He can actually read lips and body language well. James would rather struggle to understand people than to be treated like a fragile invalid.
Bruce: He’s sort of in-between. He’s not a goof-off on the job 100% but he’s not strict and stoic like Matt either. He indulges James and his antics, (secretly because of his man-crush for James). He shows concern for James’ distain towards his aids aside from his angry ranting and yelling at James when he’s being rebellious. James actually finds Bruce’s lecturing to be cute, which only infuriates Bruce more.When Bruce finally begins to understand James’ hatred over hearing aids, he beings to loosen up. We can be 1000% sure that James definitely flirts with Bruce all the time.
adrian felt numb - thankfully, working on his bottle with never-ending passion. once again putting it to his lips, the male took a few staggering steps forward; just to end up having to grab a hold of the person closest to him in order to regain balance. not even looking at who he had managed to tumble into, a weak apology left his liqour-kissed lips before he continued forward - somewhat more cautiously than before.
