natty

Will you still love him, even when he is worn down and old?
Yes, she said, for I will be there to grow old with him

Will you still love him even in his darkest hour?
Yes, she said, for he has been there for mine

Will you stand by him, through thick and through thin?
Yes, she said, for Spartans do not part ways for anything

Will you still love him even if he turns his back on you?
Yes, she said, for my love runs stronger than the most durable of elements

Will he bring you peace?
Yes, she said, for he soothes my very soul with his mere presence

Do Spartans know how to love like that?
Yes, she said, because others showed us how

There is nothing that will destroy or weaken or lessen my love for him. There is nothing that will give me cause to turn my back on him. We will forevermore remain by one another’s sides, right unto the very end.

He is ice, and I am fire. He cooled me down, while I lit him up. 
He used his light to pull me out of the darkness; he used his strength and calm to guide me through even the roughest of times. And I, with all my love and support, uplifted him when he was struggling to carry the weight of the galaxy. There is nothing that I would not do for him.

So damn the world, 
and damn you too,
for trying so hard to take him away from me.

Even in death, we could not be apart.

“When the race gets hard to run, It means you just can’t take the pace. When it’s time to have your fun, You find the tears run on down through your face, Then you stop and think a little: Are you the victim of the system? Anyday now they gon’ let you down; Remember, Natty will be there to see you through." - Bob Marley    

Nayeon: [Texting Lisa] This party is going to be so..

Jihyo: Cancelled.

Nayeon, on the phone to Lisa: Cancelled. Wait what? Cool, cool, I meant cool. Gimme a sec Li.. [turns to Jihyo] Whaddaya mean cancelled? I’ve been waiting for months for this gala!

Jihyo: [Snatching the phone from Nayeon] Cancel your plans, she’s  babysitting, unless you wanna join her too? [Lisa quickly hangs up]

Nayeon: What the…?

Jihyo: Nayeonie, I’ve left the makanes with you this weekend. Please look after them.

Nayeon: It’s 3 girls? It’s easy.

Jihyo: No, more than 3. It’s not just me going. Irene is leaving Yeri to your care as well and Somi and Natty will be joining you too and Nayoung is leaving Xiyeon with you.

Nayeon: [Nervous] Ok sure Jihyo, I’ll look after them. Take care in Tokyo during your “business trip’.

Jihyo: [Glaring] It’s not a ’‘business trip” but a business trip. Not something fun. Goodbye, see you on Monday.

{Later}

Nayeon, desperately calling for Jihyo: Jihyo, pick up, pick up, pick up!

{Call goes straight to voicemail}

Nayeon: JIHYO! COME HOME NOW! IT’S CHAOS OUT THERE! [Dodges flying chair] 

Nayeon: IT’S ANOTHER PHASE OF THE KOREAN WAR! YERI AND CHAEYOUNG ARE AT LOGGERHEADS OVER THAT GHASTLY SEX PISTOLS PUNK RUBBISH. THEY’RE SCREAMING AND BREAKING FURNITURE AND YERI IS HATING ON THIS SID FISHES GUY AND CHAEYOUNG IS TRYING TO SLIT HER THROAT AND RIP HER CLOTHES APART! XIYEON IS ON SOME STRANGE SHIT, TZUYU HAS FLED TO TAIWAN AND AS I SPEAK IS TRYING TO ASSASINATE THIS HUANG AHN GUY! [glass smashes by her feet] 

Nayeon: MOMO AND NATTY ARE HAVING THESE FIERCE SIXTEEN-ESQE DANCE BATTLES AND ARE TEARING UP THE DANCE STUDIOS AND SOMI AND DAHYUN ARE FIGHTING OVER DAHYUN’S DAB AND DAHYUN WANTS TO KILL

Nayeon: [Chair legs hits her head] OI YOU BITCH, THAT FUCKING HURT! DAHYUN WANTS TO KILL SOMI FOR DISSING IT AND SOMI IS SWEARING IN ABOUT 5 DIFFERENT LANGUAGES AT JYP. JYP WANTS TO DROP TWICE, 3 DIFFERENT POLICE OFFERS ARE AFTER US AND WE’RE ON THE FBI’S MOST WANTED LIST! JIHYO, ANSWER MEEEE! NO, NO, XIYEON CALM DOWN. YOU STRUNG OUT OF YOUR MIND, YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DOING WITH THAT ROD. XIYEON, NO, NO NO, XIIII! [Line goes dead]

{Meanwhile in a swanky hotel bar in downtown Tokyo}

Irene, drinking expensive wine: It’s good to be alone for a change. Yeri can be a bit of a handful, especially with Joy. How do you lot handle more than 1 makane?

Jihyo: Tzuyu is mature and DubChaeng are always around Jeongyeon, so I don’t have to do too much legwork. 

Nayoung: [Reading a text] Oh, it’s Xiyeon. She says she’s loving it here and wants to stay more.

Irene: Speak for her, Yeri is desparate to leave Chaengie over this Sid Fishes guy? Chae has strange taste in music.

Jihyo: I hoped to avoid hearing this Sid Vicious. 

Nayoung: Who? 

Irene: [Showing Nayoung the text] According to Yeri, he was a doped up, talentless..ooh. Kim Yerim! I’ll have to tell you off for the bad words! He died like 40 years ago and wasn’t the greatest singer of all time. 

Jihyo: [Checking her phone] Nayeonie just sent a voicemail. I don’t think she’s handling it well. 

Irene: Let her be. Toughen her up. 

Jihyo, drinking posh champange: Cheers everyone!

Irene and Nayoung: Cheers!
