Jarratt hugged Beth tightly, swaying her slightly. Tears welling up in his eyes. He cared so much about her, she was his best friend. It made him so mad seeing Marcus treat her that way for so long, he felt so helpless not being able to stop it. He saw the way Marcus changed her and it broke his heart. He was so happy he was gone now and she would be okay.
He pulled away and Beth looked at Jarratt. She suddenly noticed the huge gash on his lip and another cut on his face as well as other grazes all over him.
Beth: Jarratt! Oh my god. Y-you’re face!
Jarrat touched his lip and tasted the metallic blood slide across his tongue. He looked at the blood on his fingers.
Jarratt: Ah yeah..
Beth: Come on, let’s get you cleaned up. I can’t believe you punched him. You are insane!
Jarratt: He doesn’t seem to get verbal communication. I had to articulate my anger and disgust towards him somehow.
They headed over to the kitchen and Beth found some cotton buds and rubbing alcohol in a first aid kit to clean his wounds.
Got mom to do my haircut as usual. I’m definitely not looking forward to finding a barber when I move, but I’m gonna have to unless I really take it upon myself to learn how to cut my hair.
Gave my scalp a thorough scratching, did an ACV rinse and my hair is nice and shiny. My scalp is…very clean. With a full head of hair, scratching my whole scalp was pretty much impossible for me to do, and I have really bad dandruff. So I never did it. But now my scalp is just out here flourishing okay. She looks great.
I’ve switched up my products –using a spray leave-in and sealing with sweet almond oil– and so far it feels good. The textures on top of my head have always been fickle re: products, and I always chose products for the rest/bulk of my hair. But my cantu cream leave-in might get replaced by this spray stuff (also by cantu). And sweet almond oil is the best oil I’ve tried on my hair so far. Also really nice on my hands, and it hasn’t broke my face out either. A+
Gonna install my 24″ mojito (marley, havana - i’ve yet to see an actual difference) twists and look sickening for this three hour class tomorrow night. Good thing about this haircut is I only need 2 packs of hair instead of the usual 6 or 7 for marley twists. And install probably won’t take more than an hour since my hair is washed, stretched, and parted.
My illustration for the @zenfanzine ! This is what happens when you’re extra greedy and you want Zen to have his hair slicked back AND his hair down AND a man bun. And glistening abs. It was a fun project and I hope everyone was as excited to see all the pieces on paper as I was! Also tfw you look at art from months ago and just. wtf was I thinking
Neil tried to piece it all together, but the more he pushed, the faster it fell apart. It didn’t make sense. He didn’t know what he was supposed to think. It could be a lie, but Neil knew it wasn’t. Andrew was a lot of unpleasant things, but a pathological liar wasn’t one of them.
