Reader’s POV

“Y/N! Hello there!” Mr. Ransford greeted you as you walked into his class. You waved at him with one hand while your other was preoccupied with your project that you had managed to finish on your own due to Jungkook’s absence since the night of the storm.

“Hi Mr.Ransfo-” you started when you noticed his gaze trail behind you, another smile on his face as he said, “Jungkook! You too!”

As his name slipped through your professor’s mouth, you froze in place, as the thoughts from nights before came flooding through your mind.

You hesitantly turned around, as you looked up nervously, your eyes meeting his which were already looking at you. Breaking away from your gaze immediately, he walked up beside you and turned to look at Mr. Ransford.

“We–um-we finished the project,” he said silently as you turned away from him and handed it to your professor. Taking it from you, he looked at the both of you with a small smile on his face.

“Well I’m glad! And, it looks like you two are friends now too?” he joked, as a quiet scoff left Jungkook’s mouth, making your heart break in your chest.

Standing there for a couple of seconds in an awkward silence, you sighed and said, “Well, I need to get going Mr. Ransford. I have another class in a couple minutes that I need to get to.”

Saying your goodbyes you walked out the door, not looking back to see if Jungkook was following or not, although you could hear the faint sound of his footsteps behind you.

“Y/N?” he called out softly, as you let out a breath you didn’t know you were holding in.

Some memories from the weekend.

Arsula said she was fine till she saw us show up at the funeral. She ran to our row and squeezed my sister so hard. First she was smiling, and then the tears flowed. We ended up in group hugs so many times.

The second photo shows our old friend (and much more), Ryan, whom we hadn’t seen in over 20 years, with my brother and sister Hannah. When Ryan said hi to one of my other sisters, she didn’t recognize him and stuck out her hand to shake.

Ryan and his brother Tim, and their family were friends from New York City, as was Arsula’s family. My dad met her father Ronnie on the subway in 1975, and then they were brothers for life. When we moved to California, their two families followed shortly after. Ryan and Tim moved in next door. Arsula’s family loved with us for over a year and then moved in down the block.

We were so happy to see Ronnie’s wife as well, although I’ve seen her recently, because we live closer. My brother spoke at the funeral, talking about what Ronnie meant to him. He was the last speaker, and the first one to bring the pastor to tears.

I have seen this pastor quite a few times, because a lot of the ex cult members meet at his church. But yesterday was the first time I had a chance to really talk with him. He is from Ghana, and he told me that even before he came to America he knew my name and all five of my siblings names, because we were so dear to Ransford, another old friend who is no longer with us. That has made me tear up since with both joy and sadness. Ransford was like a second dad to me, and it was lovely to have that confirmation that he felt the same about us.

After the funeral, we hung out at my sister Hannah’s house with Arsula, then Ryan met us for dinner. We ended up staying out till 11 p.m., before I had to call it a night. Arsula and Ryan played pool with my youngest sister for a while afterward.

I shared quite a few stressful issues in an earlier post, and I so appreciate your comments and messages. I have the best friends here.

But I also wanted to share this. I have been privileged to know these people and have them in my life. I am so grateful that those connections are still strong. Whenever we get together, no matter how much time has passed, we are still family.

The last photo is me on Sunday morning. This is a pretty accurate impression of how I’m feeling lately, lumpy heart monitor, messy hair, messy face, and in a box full of emotions.

So today I’m going to concentrate on all my blessings.

Happy Monday, my friends.


Going through some old photos at my parents house, I found these 1970s photos of “saints” from the “church” I grew up in. Those are “gospel robes” we use to wear on “gospel marches”, Chinese on the front and English in back.

“The Prophet of the Age” is in these photos, as is Ransford, who was like a second father to me. He passed away in a freak accident on a Ghanaian road about 10 years ago. Honestly, he is the only good thing in these pictures, as far as I’m concerned.

When we came across these old snapshots, last weekend, my mother told me some stories I’d never heard. Before I was born, my mother ran away from her debutante lifestyle to live in Spain and Morocco with her brother (my uncle EJ) and my dad - her boyfriend at the time. EJ moved there first, and my parents fit in with his group of friends, some of whom my mom grew up with too.

One of their good friends was Danny Milland, the son of an actor, Ray Milland. Danny ended up killing himself in the early 80’s, and I remember my uncle being devastated. My mom told me that she hadn’t seen him in years until they reunited in Spain in the early 60’s. She walked into her brother’s bedroom, and Danny was there. “Hi Mary Ellen,” he said and casually jabbed a needle full of heroin into his thigh-right through his jeans.

Another friend was Steve Grant. His dad wrote movies-about a dozen for John Wayne, and Steve played Penny’s younger brother in “Angel and the Badman. Mom said he had the most beautiful blue eyes, and the first gazpacho she ever ate was made by Steve’s maid. They had a bit of a crush on each other, and they spooned all night in his bed one time when my dad ran out of money and had to go back to the U.S.

Years later my mom was in “the church” at a gospel march in Venice Beach. She was wearing her gospel robe, walking militantly through the street when she happened to glance toward a man relaxing on a bench. He looked up just then, and they locked eyes. He had the bluest eyes, and they suddenly widened in recognition as he realized that this “Jesus freak” was my mom, and she knew that it was her old friend Steve. In her own words, she “broke ranks”, ran to him and kissed him (as an old friend). They talked for a minute or two and then she hurried to catch up with the “saints” and never saw him again.

TNT’s Hit Series Major Crimes to Tackle Tough New Cases

                                        When Season 4 Launches in June

               Top 10 Basic Cable Drama Returns Monday, June 8, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT)

Television’s favorite squad of detectives will be back on the case this summer when TNT’s hit drama Major Crimes returns for its fourth season. One of basic cable’s Top 10 series, Oscar® and Emmy® nominee Mary McDonnell heads the extraordinary ensemble cast that includes G.W. Bailey, Tony Denison, Michael Paul Chan, Raymond Cruz, Phillip P. Keene, Kearran Giovanni, Graham Patrick Martin and Jonathan Del Arco, along with Robert Gossett. Major Crimes is set to launch its fourth season on Monday, June 8, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT). It will be followed by the return of TNT’s hit crime-drama Murder in the First.

In 2014, Major Crimes ranked as one of basic cable’s Top 10 series for the third consecutive year. The series averaged more than 8.2 million viewers in Live + 7 delivery in its third season, with 2.5 million adults 18-49 and 1.9 million adults 25-54, all on par with the prior season’s performance. Overall, the show reached an average of 11.6 million viewers per episode across TNT’s linear, VOD, online and mobile platforms.

Major Crimes focuses on how the American justice system approaches the art of the deals as law enforcement officers and prosecutors work together to score a conviction. In the series, McDonnell stars as Los Angeles Police Captain Sharon Raydor, who heads up a special squad within the LAPD that deals with high-profile or particularly sensitive crimes. Her team of investigators includes G.W. Bailey as Lieutenant Provenza, Tony Denison as Lieutenant Andy Flynn, Michael Paul Chan as Lieutenant Mike Tao, Raymond Cruz as Detective Julio Sanchez, Kearran Giovanni as Detective Amy Sykes and Phillip P. Keene as tech expert Buzz Watson. Robert Gossett plays Assistant Chief Russell Taylor, Raydor’s boss, while Jonathan Del Arco plays Dr. Morales, the medical examiner. Graham Patrick Martin plays Rusty Beck, a formerly homeless teen who has been adopted by Raydor.

In addition to the main cast, Major Crimes features recurring appearances by Jon Tenney as Deputy Chief of the Special Operations Bureau Fritz Howard, Ransford Doherty as Coroner’s Investigator Kendall, Kathe Mazur as DDA Andrea Hobbs, Malcolm-Jamal Warner as Lt. Chuck Cooper and Bill Brochtrup as Rusty’s therapist, Dr. Joe Bowman. Also set to return this season is guest star Tom Berenger as Jack Raydor, Capt. Raydor’s estranged husband.

This season on Major Crimes, the division will be called upon to investigate a complicated string of home burglaries, a case involving a dead body left in the trunk of a car that is wrecked during a high-speed chase and a gangland shooting case involving an 11-year-old witness. During his first drive-along as a Reserve Officer, Buzz Watson will be dragged into the latest Flynn and Provenza investigative debacle after a dead body in a bathtub threatens an extremely expensive wedding. And Sanchez will return to the Major Crimes unit, but struggle to rebuild relationships and trust with his fellow officers. Back at home, Sharon Raydor’s newly adopted son, Rusty, will discover a passion for journalism that tests his mother’s patience, and could threaten the prosecution of a confessed murderer.

Created by James Duff, Major Crimes is produced by The Shephard/Robin Company and Walking Entropy, Inc., in association with Warner Bros. Television. Duff, Greer Shephard & Michael M. Robin, Rick Wallace, Adam Belanoff and Leo Geter serve as executive producers.
