never-showing-up

2

Eliana made her way over to a bench after a long walk around the surrounding neighborhood. Her feet in those heels were killing her… 

She was just starting to feel a little disappointed that Rory never showed up when suddenly she saw someone approaching her.


“Hey, there you are! I was looking for you. What are you doing all the way out here alone?”

Oh hey there Rory, I didn’t think you were coming. I wasn’t feeling very good and needed a walk…”

“Mind if I join you? I was just on my way home, figured I must have missed you.”

Morning Routines. (Gladiolus)

And here’s the last one for the Morning Routines, hope these have been fun :)

Gladiolus.
Waking up isn’t too much of a challenge. His alarm does it’s job there. Getting out of bed though? That’s the hard part. How much time it takes him to start his day depends on how urgently he’s needed throughout the day. If he can afford to take it easy, he won’t hesitate to take a few hours. If it’s an especially demanding day he’s out of bed in seconds. How much he needs to get done also alters his routine. On an average day he’d prefer to exercise for a little while before he does anything else. But if it’s a packed day, he’ll just shower and get ready, leaving as soon as his hair is dry enough. He would never forgive himself for showing up in front of other nobles with “seaweed hair”

Back to average days though, after exercising he’ll probably chat with Iris a bit. She tends to fall back asleep if she doesn’t engage with anyone or anything for very long. And he feels it should be his responsibility to look after her. They usually have breakfast together, and he fills in Iris on what they’re father is up to if he hasn’t been home in a long while. They even end up chatting about Prompto’s “good morning” messages. Wrapping up breakfast, he finally gets up to get ready. But only after making sure that Iris is up for the day. And even though he goes for a shower after Iris, he still comes out a whole lot faster than her.

His next step is touching base with all the staff of the household. He outlines what the day will require of them, and urges them to get in touch with him if there’s any confusion about anything. Once all that is covered, he contacts some of the people who work with his father, so he has an idea of what he needs to stay on top of. 

sage and i went to a viewing for an apartment today and the property managers just ghosted us and never showed up, and then i got home and got an email from the property manager of a different apartment we were the most confident about living in and it turns out it’s full so we’re back to square fucking one

((I love that Super Mario Galaxy 2 implies luigi’s just, y'know, exploring the universe while Mario’s chilling in the Mushroom Kingdom until something happens. It explains where Luigi is in all the Mario games he never shows up in.

So here’s super space explorer Luigi one of the times he randomly bumps into his brother in the game.))

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
