The One That Got Away

based on the song by Katy Perry

“Why are you dragging me to a bar, Natasha? I told you that I didn’t feel like going out.” Bucky asked his bossy red-haired friend.

Nat just rolled her eyes before she answered him, “Because, I got tired of seeing you all holed up in your apartment for the millionth Saturday in a row.”

Bucky knew that he couldn’t fight her on this. Natasha was his closet friend and once she told someone to do something, they usually did it out of fear. He wasn’t ashamed to admit that he was scared of her a little.

Okay, more like a lot.

Title: Subtle Jealousy
Character: Danny Rand
A/n: I didn’t wanna make it exclusive so the author character in this is totally made up.

“So, what’s happening again?” Danny asked as he watched you run around the main floor of the shop, shoving books into shelves with impressive speed and accuracy. He had offered help, but you refused, wanting to get it done as soon as possible.

You huffed, placing the last few books where they needed to go and turned to him. “One of my favorite authors came in earlier today, him and I started having small talk whenever I ran him up and he invited me out to coffee whenever I was finished here.”

Danny looked up at you. “I thought you always locked up the shop? Unless it was an emergency.”

“I told Layla about what happened and she offered to cover for me,” You explained, smiling at whenever you were finally finished. “Besides, I think I’ve earned a night off to myself don’t you think?”

Danny gave you a small smile, watching you hop about the shelves. “What’s his name?”

“Neil Melville, he wrote these great couple of books a couple years ago when he was still in college,” You explained, your fingers flittered around a couple shelves until you located the first one and tossed it to him. “But he’s really great, you’d like his stuff.”

Danny looked down at the cover, it was brightly colored and showed various mystical creatures all over it, so he knew it was fantasy.

“Where are you two going?”

There a short humming noise from your end while you tried to get the store situated before you left. “I don’t actually remember the name, I’m gonna give him a ring before I go.”

“You have his number?”

You gave Danny a short smile before passing him with a short nudge on his shoulder. “Listen, I’ll make sure to call you if anything happens. But you really shouldn’t worry.”

Danny looked over to you and saw that you were adjusting the collar of your shirt over your cardigan and fixing up your hair. He didn’t even notice he has started to frown whenever he looked up and saw how grumpy he looked in the mirror.

He hopped down from the counter, sliding the book on to it. “I think I’m gonna head out,” Danny said, placing his hands into his pockets and giving you a small smile. “But lemme know how it all goes.”

“Why exactly does this matter to you so much?” Colleen asked as she tried to measure up how much duct tape she would need to fix the one arm of her punching dummy. “And more importantly, why did you think to come to me? I get I’m your friend, but relationships aren’t exactly my specialty.”

Danny, who was sitting crossed legged on the floor, looked down at the mat and shrugged. “I dunno, you’re the only person besides (Y/n) that I talk to.”

Colleen tore a long peice of duct tape from the roll and turned back to him. “From what I’ve heard, this seems like a textbook example of jealousy, my friend.”

Danny’s posture straightened up and he frowned. “Why would I be jealous? That doesn’t make any sense.”

Colleen gave him a coy smile. “Yes it does. You have feelings for your old childhood friend, simple.” She turned back and began taping the wooden arm to it’s proper place.

Danny jumped to his feet. “No I don’t! I’m just concerned about her well being!”

“Mhm,” Colleen looked up at him skeptically. “Alright then, answer me this,” She started, leaning against the center of the training dummy once the arm was secure. “If (Y/n) were to continue to see this guy,” She instantly saw the shift in Danny’s eyes but kept going. “And eventually she starts spending more time with him than you, how would you feel?”

Colleen smriked at the grumpy frown that started to take up his face. She knew all about Danny’s feelings for you when she saw the way he looked at you when he brought her to your shop one day.

You and her got into a lengthy discussion about some novel and while you were going on a tangent, Colleen glanced over at Danny and saw him giving you the most enamored expression she’d seen on a person that wasn’t in a film.

Danny thought about it, and the answer was pretty simple. He hated the thought, it was bad enought that tonight was when the two of you usually went out into the city to do something together, but now the idea that someone would take up all of your time made him upset.

“I wouldn’t like it at all.”

Colleen nodded, pointing the roll of duct tape at him. “Then I hate to break it you, but you’re jealous.”

Still in denial, Danny looked up at her. “I don’t think she’d start going off with someone all the time, she’s not the type.”

“People change when they’re in love.”

“Who said anything about love?” Danny’s tone might have been a tad more sharp than be anticipated because Colleen was smirking again.

“Oh yeah, classic case of jealousy.”

Danny looked across the street at the coffee shop where you were seeing Neil. Not long after you got there, you sent Danny a small message letting him know where you were and that everything had been fine so he shouldn’t worry.

Still, everything about the situation seemed off to him. There was a nagging feeling in his chest that screamed that it didn’t like what was going on.

But it was all new to him, he had never felt this sort of way before.

But he knew he didn’t like it.

Especially since even across the street he could easily you and Neil sitting at a table next to the window. You and him appeared to be chatting up a storm, and Danny had never seen your eyes light up so much around another person.

Deciding to take the initiative, Danny crossed the street and entered into the busy coffee house, hiding himself behind a tall bookshelf so he could see exactly what was happening.

You two must have been discussing one of Neil’s books, because you began bringng up character arcs and other literary terms Danny didn’t fully understand.

But then, there was a brief moment when Neil’s hand brushed against yours and it prompted Danny immediately to walk over to the table without even thinking.

You saw him instantly due to your seating, and you gave him a confused expression when you did. “Danny? What are you doing here?”

Danny blinked, not exactly sure why he came over or how he was going to talk his way out of it.

“Are you a friend of (Y/n)?” Neil asked, prompting Danny to turn his attention to him instead.

“Yes! I am! A very close childhood friend!” Danny said, introducing himself as the two of them shook hands.

“I hate to interrupt, but Colleen had something happen at the dojo and we could really use another hand.”

You turned back to Neil and gave him an apologetic smile. “I’d hate to cut this short, but would you mind if I stepped out?”

Neil shook his head. “Of course not, we can always make time to talk again.”

Danny watched the two of you bid each other goodbye before Neil left the coffee house.

“So, what’s up with Colleen?”

Danny’s eyes widened for a moment when he remembered his small white lie. But his phone went off and when he looked at the screen it was a message from her asking where he ran off to.

“Actually, she just let me know that she called a guy to come over to look at the thing.”

You looked puzzled again. “Really? Maybe I should call Neil again then.”

Danny perked up. “Well on my way here, I saw that the movie theatre down the street is showing your favorite film, thought you might be interested in going with me since we’re already here.”

You smiled at him. “Today’s when we usually go out isn’t it?” You asked, to which Danny eagerly nodded and held his hand out to you, making you chuckled and placine your hand in his. “Lead the way.”

Danny laughed and the two of you left the coffee house, once outside you gave his hand a small press.

“You don’t have to go through all that trouble and lie to hang out with me, just let me know next time.”

Danny flashed you a guilty smile. “It worked though, didn’t it?”

Imagine late nights and birthday cake with Chris.

A/N: Part 4 is here! Taking things back to Y/N and Chris’ sweet love for each other. You can read the previous parts here: (Little Ones - Part 1/Part 2/Part 3) and (Drunk Minds, Sober Hearts; Baby Fever; Memory Lane - Masterlist) Links will be added soon. X

The birthday party came to a close around 6:30PM, with family members and close friends remaining behind to help out with the clean up as well as watch Jack open his presents. It was insane how many presents he got, especially from said family members and close friends- majority of them got him a minimum of two. It was also ridiculous what they got him, items that no normal person would get a two year old: a custom-made drivable toy car modeled after Chris’ white Lexus, a home theater system for his bedroom, an annual pass for Disney World which you and Chris had to admit you were excited about as it was a family package, and plane tickets to New Orleans from Anthony which was more addressed to you and Chris than your son; he’d been bugging the two of you to visit for a while now. Those were just a few examples of the above and beyond gifts your friends and families had given Jack, there were still more to come.

Both you and Chris knew he’d be a little spoilt as he was the first child the two of you had; all your family and friends had been waiting for a little one from the Evans/Y/L/N duo for a while now, but never had you imagined that Jack would be this spoiled. Now both of you knew you were good parents and he was a good kid, but there was legitimate concern that all that attention would get to his pretty little head.

“Look, Mama! Daddy, look!” Jack held up his next gift for you and Chris to see; you both scoffed when you realized it was your father’s very precious Tag Heuer watch. “It’s so shiny!” He slipped the obviously too big for his small wrist watch on. “Thank you, Grandpa.”

“Is your dad insane?” Chris hissed into your ear. “That watch is crazy expensive, Jack’s going to ruin it.” You shot him a ‘duh’ look; your son was a two year old with a $5,000 watch. “Get him to take it back, they already got him a home theater system.”

“Dad’s not going to take it back,” you shook your head; you knew your father very well. “I’ll just take it from Jack later when he’s asleep and keep it somewhere safe until he’s old enough.” You both watched your son with a wary eye, tensing when the watch slid up and down his small arm. “Is it just me, or are the presents getting more ridiculous?”

“The presents are getting more ridiculous,” Chris nodded in agreement. “What did we get him again?” He quizzed rhetorically. “Oh right. Toys, clothes, and books, otherwise known as normal things for a two year old. I can’t believe your dad gave Jack his watch,” he shook his head in disbelief. “He got me a toaster for my birthday,” he muttered bitterly under his breath.

“Aw, sweetheart.” You chuckled softly, running your hand up and down his back. “To be fair, I did tell him our toaster was broken a few days before your birthday.” He turned to you with a deadpan expression; he broke, chuckling when you snickered. “That may or may not have influenced his decision.”

“You couldn’t wait till your birthday to tell him our toaster was broken?”

“Well-” you pursed your lips, “I could, but I wanted toast.” He laughed and hugged you, kissing the top of your head as you wrapped your arms around him. The two of you kept one arm around each other as you broke the hug, returning your attention to your son who was opening his next gift. You believed this one was from Hayley because she was grinning pretty excitedly.

“Wow!” Jack gasped as he pulled out two little figurines; it was a 3D print-out of Chris as Captain America and Jack as Captain America. “It’s me and Daddy!” He held it up for you and Chris to see; you shook your head at Hayley, smiling, whereas your husband was trying hard not to lose it at such an awesome gift.

“That is pretty freaking awesome,” Chris pulled away from you to join Jack on the floor. Jack passed him the figurines and he studied them, his smile growing wider with every second. “Oh my God, look babe.” He carried them over to you and you chuckled at how he was more excited than Jack who had moved onto his next gift.

“You’re such a nerd,” you chuckled, pressing a kiss on Chris’ arm. 

• • • • • • • •

After the clean up was done and everyone left, you and Chris put Jack to bed. It was a lot easier tonight, he practically fell asleep before his head hit the pillow; all that excitement and running around in the day exhausted him. You and Chris, on the other hand, decided to make use of the rare time that you had alone to just spend some time together. You grabbed pillows and a blanket while Chris got some leftover birthday cake, so the two of you could sit under the stars in the backyard and enjoy a moment to yourselves; a moment with nothing but your love for each other.

“I feel like we haven’t done this in so long,” Chris said as he plopped his paper plate down on the blanket. He straightened his legs and laid down, resting a pillow under his arm as he propped himself up to look at you. “Who knew having a kid meant losing ourselves in him?”

“Me, I knew.” You smiled smugly and Chris chuckled. “Why else do you think I postponed having a child for so long?” You cut another chunk out of your slice of cake and spoon it into your mouth. “I wanted more time with just us, dinner dates and spontaneous trips and red carpet events. Even something as simple as grocery shopping without a little kid sounds pretty good,” you admitted. “Does that make me a bad mom?”

“God, no,” he shook his head, laughing. “I was actually thinking that the other day when Jack couldn’t decide on a cereal.” You laughed then ate more cake. “Remember when it was just us, it was always either Fruit Loops, Lucky Charms, or if you’re feeling healthy- Special K. Ah, the good old days,” he sighed then chuckled.

“I hope you’re not regretting becoming a father,” you put both your plates aside so there wasn’t anything between the two of you. “'Cause let’s not forget you’re the reason we have a child in the first place.” He chuckled, adjusting so he was on his back and you could rest your head on his chest. “We could’ve still been childless right now.”

“Yeah, but that’s not really what we both want.” Chris sighed into your hair and you smiled, nodding in agreement. “Sure, we miss the things we could’ve done without Jack but- there are a million things that are more fun with Jack. All the holidays, like Halloween and Thanksgiving and Christmas. He makes our everyday life interesting with his constant random thoughts and acts. He’s so cute and supportive about our jobs, remember the Oscars? He literally screamed when he saw us come on TV.” You both chuckled, thinking about the video Shana took of Jack while she babysat for the two of you. “What else is more fun?”

“Disney World?” You quizzed, turning so you could rest your chin on his chest and meet his gaze.

“Well…” He hesitated with a high pitched whine and you laughed, making him laugh. “It’d be more fun when he’s older. Just like the Super Bowl, 'cause I don’t think he really appreciates any of it now. He just copies how I react, not knowing why. But- it’s still pretty cute,” he smiled.

“You’re pretty cute,” you smiled and reached to meet his lips. He smiled against your lips, his arm snaking around your back. “You’re more than just pretty cute,” you whispered, running your hand through his hair. “You’re breathtakingly beautiful. God, it’s so hard to concentrate around you sometimes,” you teased.

“That’s rich coming from angel that the heavens blessed me with,” he reached for your hand that was playing with his hand and entwined his fingers with yours; you smiled. “I love you,” he whispered then tenderly pecked you on the lips.

“I love you too,” you smiled, giving his hand a light squeeze. He smiled and tucked your hair behind your ear with his other hand before letting it rest on your lower back again. “And about what you said earlier, about having another-”

“Ignore me,” he chuckled, cutting you off. “I think our hands are pretty full with Jack at the moment, so we shouldn’t really try for another just yet. We should have some time for just us, we can barely manage that with Jack around- can you imagine having another baby? I’m okay,” he assured you with a nod. “I have the only girl I need and she is beyond perfect.”

“Still as smooth as ever, Evans.” You smiled and kissed him.

A/N: This was requested by @hardobservationpeanut! I hope you guys enjoy this! Feedback is welcomed and appreciated!

When you opened your eyes, all you could see was the light that hung above you.  There wasn’t much else to see.  You assumed you were in a small room or an empty walk-in closet.  Your arms and legs were tied down to the chair that you were sitting in.  You couldn’t even remember how you got here.  The last thing you remembered was putting your groceries in your car.

The creaking of the door startled you.  An unfamiliar man stepped inside, holding a bag in his hand.  He set the bag down on the table by the door.  As he stepped into the light, you could tell that it was the unsub.  He was the perfect match to the description one of the women at the station had given you.

“It’s good to see that you’re awake [Y/N],” the man said in a calm, friendly voice.  “I was starting to wonder if I gave you too much sedative.”

“Why am I here Robert,” you asked, using his name.  “Are you going to hurt me?  Or is it the power that you want?”

“You’re quite special [Y/N],”the leading vampire divulged.  The vampire laughed at your confusion, “oh your parents haven’t told you a thing.  How cute.”  The vampire paced in front of you.  “We’re going to make a pretty little penny off of you miss [Y/L/N].”

“She’s no use to us besides the blood that’s in her veins,” his female companion uttered.  “We have all we need already.”

“No, but if we squeeze her parents for money, ensuring her safe return, we won’t have to hide out in this shack,” the vampire figured.  “Your parents only have what’s best at heart for you, don’t they [Y/N]?”-

You abruptly opened your eyes, leaning on your elbows.  You held your head, feeling a sharp ache.  “Fuck,” you breathed.  You laid back down, you back against the mattress.  You relaxed once you saw that Gabriel was propped up next to you.  “How long have you been sitting there?”  You slid over in bed, laying your head on his lap.

This is not the first time Chanyeol calls Kai dark, and he is not the only one. And I am sure this is not the last time. You can blame Chanyeol because he is stupid. Remember when they are saying Kai used the (n) word, but it means Me, myself and I in Korea. I remembered people were freaking out about it. It doesn’t make sense if you guys unfollow each other. Chanyeol is just jealous of Kaisoo. That is why kyungsoo ignores him

I aM SO SORRY I HAVEN’T WRITTEN IN LIKE A YEAR. okay I have so many requests and I’m going to make it a goal to try and write most of them by the end of summer this year. so here is one I got about making Peter jealous of Felix and I think it was a pretty great idea So I hope you guys like it and I will be posing some more imagines soon!

imagine: Peter

Imagine you had being in Neverland and staying with Peter, Felix and the rest of the lost boys. You sat on a log, drawing circles in the dirt with a stick while you rested your face in your hand. You glanced up to see Peter, completely focused on entertaining Henry, the new kid. You rolled your eyes and looked back at the dirt. Peter had been playing these games for awhile now and you were growing so tired of it. You were pretty sure it had been weeks since you two had actually spoken more than a few words to each other. You couldn’t figure out why he had stopped, because you really thought there was something good between you two. When you had first arrived on Neverland, Peter paid you all his attention and more, much, much more.
*flashback*
You had been in Neverland for a month and you had never been so happy. You jumped off of a tree branch letting out a loud cheer before you fell under the waves. You quickly resurfaced, running your hands over your face to get your long hair out of your way. You opened your eyes and smiled a huge, joyful smile as you looked at the boy who by now had quite literally made all your dreams come true. Peter let out a laugh as he swam closer to you.
“Are you enjoying yourself, love?” Peter asked, his green eyes twinkling as he studied your unique features with the upmost admiration. You had to look down to hide the blush of your cheeks from him, “You have no idea,” you said quietly, feeling the nervous excitement that he gave you coursing through your body. You felt him move closer to you and by the time you glanced back up, he was nose to nose with you, meeting your gaze as he lifted his hand you stroke your cheek. He leaned in close to you, “I can honestly say, you are the most beautiful creature that has ever graced this island,” he whispered softly into your ear, sending a shiver of excitement down your spine. He pulled back to admire the reaction he had gotten from you, letting out a chuckle as he continued to pet you gently, making you feel so incredibly special, more special than ever.
“Can I stay here forever, Peter?” You asked, not really knowing what it was that motivated you to say it. The side of his lip curled up into that smirk you had come to adore, “Yes, but only if you promise you’ll never look at anyone else this way,” he said softly as he slowly began to lean into you. You couldn’t manage to get a word out as you got lost in the idea of finally feeling his lips against yours. You nodded your head quickly, becoming impatient as he teased you by coming just close enough to feel his breath on yours. “Uh uh,” he said, resting his soft finger gently on your lips, stopping you from meeting his which made you let out a groan which then made him laugh, “you have to say you promise,” he continued. Without hesitation you breathed, “I promise.” To which he replied by pressing his lips to yours, sending you out of this world with joy.
*end of flashback*
You groaned, trying to push back that memory since really nothing had happened since those moments that had caused you so much frustration. You glanced back up at Peter, even though at this point you knew he wouldn’t be looking back at you. And sure, enough he was focused on little Henry. You watched them chat and play as you pouted on your log. Suddenly you felt a presence next to you, forcing your attention away from Peter and Henry.
“Hello (Y/n),” a cool voice said.
You looked next to you to see Felix, one of your closest friends on the island smirking at you, “day dreaming about Peter again?” He said teasing you.
“Shut up,” you groaned, tossing the stick you had been using to draw circles into the fire that the rest of the lost boys continued to dance around. “Awh, you know I’m just messing with you,” he laughed. You looked back up at him, studying his features. Though Felix was your best friend, you had to admit he was good looking. He was tall, slim and had a mop of messing blonde hair on top of his head, with blue eyes to study the island with. He would definitely make anyone in their right mind quite jealous that they couldn’t have him. And that’s when you got your idea. Jealous. “Felix,” you said, scootching closer to him so that your legs touched to his as you hugged his arm, “have I ever told you how much I admire you?” You said, a little louder than you would usually speak. You glanced quickly across the way to Peter, who finally turned his head towards you. Felix looked a little confused at first but seemed to catch onto the idea, “Why no, (y/n), you haven’t, but I’d sure love it if you’d tell me some more,” he said, taking my hand in his so that we’d be more convincing. You could almost feel the tension coming from Peter all the way across the little camp. It was working. “Well,” you said, leaning in to whisper in felix’s ear, but just then a hand firmly yanked you up off the log. “I need to talk to you,” a very familiar voice said in a very British accent. You couldn’t help but smirk as you said, “Me?” Gesturing to yourself in a mock confused manner. Peter’s jaw tensed as he dragged you behind him into his tent. He glanced outside to make sure know one was listening before he turned to you, “What was that?” He asked very sternly.
“What was what?” You asked, still pretending as if you had no clue what was going on. He tilted his head and gave you a knowing look, “Don’t play games with me, (y/n),” he said. You let out a laugh at that remark, “Oh, I’m the one playing games now? Last time I checked that was you Mr. Kiss-me-and-drop-off-the-face-of-the-earth,” you said, widening your eyes at him. He came closer to you, making your confidence drop a bit, “I make the rules here, (y/n), remember? I’ll play whatever games I want with you,” he said, looking you up and down hungrily like he used to, “and you made a promise to me.”
You gulped, trying to conceal how much of a wreck you were at the moment when all you wanted to do was grab him and feel him against you again. And you knew no matter how hard you tried to hide it, he knew. The old smirk he used to give you returned, “I knew you couldn’t break your promise though,” he said softly, his eyes wandering to your lips. “What do you mean by-?” But you were cut off when Peter suddenly pressed his lips against yours, slowly laying the two of you down on the ground. His lips moved in sync with yours as his hands ran gently down your waist, making you feel so reckless and free once again. You flipped him over so you were on top of him, your eyes scanning every beautiful inch of his sweet face. He leaned up and tried to kiss you again, but you gently rested your fingers on his lips, stopping him from making contact, “Uh uh,” you said, letting yourself smile as you told him, “promise me you’ll never look at any other creature this way.” He shook his head in awe of you as he forced you back onto his lips, begging you for more. You pulled away one last time, laughing as he groaned in frustration, “I should make you jealous more often.”

Dear JonBenet,

I have been missing you for six years now, and seeing your face on television and sometimes in the papers, I wish I could talk to you. We had such happy times together – in your pink bedroom, in your garden, all through your house. Although I was a couple of years older than you (your mom being pregnant with Burke when my mom was pregnant with me) I always liked playing with you best. You were funny and smart and liked ice cream as much as I did.

Do you remember how my mom taught us, at the Boulder Salad place, when we were spooning the ice cream into our cones, to tap the cones halfway through to make the ice cream sink so we could get more in? That was the last time we saw each other and it was such a good time. After you were gone, my mother asked if I thought you were missing ice cream. I said right away, “Mom, there’s ice cream in heaven.” I hope I was right.
I sure wish you were with me now that we’re teenagers. True, you wouldn’t be quite 13, but you seemed older than your years. Even when I knew you, you were never just this little kid running around. You always had plans, some project or other, something to do. I was never bored when I was with you. Now we could be going to Pearl Street Mall, two blondes together, and beyond hating the blond jokes. (You never got old enough to hate the blond jokes like I did.)

We could hang out on campus and look at what the college girls wear. When I was the age you’d be now, there was a big production of The Nutcracker. Sometimes I’d go and watch the rehearsals. You would have been one of the dancers, I bet.

I know you loved Christmas and the Pearl Street Mall is so pretty now with all of the lights. There’s another mall to go to now, too, as big as a town itself, with its own streets. I love it when my mom takes me there. You can get everything cool there, like at Abercrombie & Fitch, American Eagle, Polo and Ralph Lauren. At least those are what I like. There’s all of these new styles. You wouldn’t be old enough probably, to start asking your mom if you could have you bellybutton pierced, like I just did. And, of course, she said absolutely not! Maybe you’d say “Yuck!” Me, too, a couple of years ago. But now it seems ok, even cool.
And remember how we’d tease your brother all of the time?
“Let’s go bother Burke,” you’d say. And so we would go in his room where he was playing his Nintendo endlessly and unplug his computer. And then he would say “Heck, I was at the highest level!” And we would run away, go into your bathroom and lock the door, and he would be banging on it and we would be giggling behind it.

I’m so sad that you can’t be here to watch your brother grow up and change. Like my brother Matthew was distant for awhile and how he’s my friend and takes me to his classes at CU sometimes. He’s gong ot be an astrophysicist. I wonder what Burke is doing now.

The last time I saw him we were at Dougie’s house and he was so sad and grieving and hardly could talk from missing you. I wanted to hug him, but I couldn’t.

That last year you had a pink Christmas tree in your room. There were Christmas trees in every room of your house, all with presents under them, and I was tempted to be jealous because in our house we had only one Christmas tree for everybody.

But I didn’t really feel like being jealous because you always shared everything. If there was one cookie left, you would split it and give the biggest half to me. I really loved you for being kind and generous always.
You would have been such a good friends to me now in this kind of difficult time of learning to drive and all of that.
Maybe you would have been wanting to go to Boulder High like I do. I’d be telling you about all of these neat classes, like my catering class. We learned to make snickerdoodles at first and then we learned how to make Thanksgiving dinner. And the team sports. I did softball starting last summer and now I’m on the swim team.

You would be great at team sports becaue you always got along with everybody. You would still be too young for boyfriends (and wouldn’t need them!) and we would talk about sthat stuff. I miss you. You were so funny and always thought of things to do that might tick off the parents.

You would really love the Harry Potter books because they are full of magic. The Harry Potter movies are good, too. And maybe you’d like Eminem’s rap music and the movie 8 Mile. And concerts at Chataugua (a local park) And quieter things, like walks at Chataugua at sunrise with the dogs. Some things don’t change, like the Boulder Christmas Star, which has been lit for several weeks now, high on the hill that we could see from both our houses. Maybe you are looking at it now from above at least our eyes can meet there.

I know you loved your life and I loved your life too. And knowing how much you loved yours, I must love mine the more. I will always be thinking of you and hoping you have ice cream in heaven. I know you are an angel there and someday I will be with you.

The clouds will be pink like the walls of your room and we will be laughing together and looking forward, and back, and not missing each other anymore.

Love forever,
Your friend, Lindsey

A Little Too Late Part 6

Title: A Little Too Late Part 6

Characters: Gabriel, Sam, Dean, Castiel, Balthazar

Pairing: Gabriel x Reader

Word Count: 971

Warnings: angst

A/N: I thought since you all got me to 300, I would put out three fics today! So here is the 6th part to this series!  Just a note on this series, as I am writing it.  It may not seem like it should be categorized as a Gabriel series, but trust me, it will still be a Gabriel series because we’ll be focusing on him!

Series Masterlist

Gabriel’s nostrils flared, “did they hurt you [Y/N]?”  Gabriel took a step forward, trying to remain calm for your sake.  The archangel found it harder to stay calm the longer it took for you to answer.

“Besides knocking me unconscious, cutting my arm, and the lack of basic human needs, I was never harmed,” you informed them.  “It’s what they were planning.”

“What were they planning [Y/N],” Castiel asked, his voice stern.

“Originally they were going to let me die and then feed off of me.  Then the leader had other plans,” you said, trailing off.

*Imagine finding out Tig cheated on you and you get him back by cheating on him as well.*

“I’m driving around Tig, why?” You asked hesitantly. “Don’t fucking play around with me Y/N. We need to talk.” He said. “I’m not coming home till tomorrow Ales, sorry.” He started laughing to your comment. “Baby, I’m sorry. I just didn’t think you would do this to me or to us. You know how I feel about you.” Tig said. You put the phone down because your started to cry. You never let anyone see you or hear you cry, you thought it made you feel weak. You knew you had fucked up by getting Tig back but at the same time you straightened yourself out and remembered who the fuck you were. You picked back up the phone and said, “Tiggy baby, FUCK YOU!” and hung up. Right when you hung up Gaby called you and said, “Girl, where are you?” “I’m on my way to your house. Make sure nobody is following you because Tig doesn’t know where you stay.” You said. “Oh yeah, I got my ass out of there and I been taking detours out the ass to get to my house that’s only 15 minutes away from the bar thanks to you!” “I’m sorry, I’ll be there in a bit though.” You said hanging up.

“You know you got some nerve baby doll.” Gaby said opening the door to you. “Quit your shit. So, tell me what happened.” You said curiously. “Girl, he came in looking for you then that dumb ass boy you screwed came up asking me for your number then Tig hit him. Jax had to hold him off though.” She said. “Oh my God.” You said shaking your head.. You thought to yourself, why was he so mad? He just did the same thing to you. “Guys are fucking idiotic.” You said.”Girl you & I both know damn well that shit is an ego thing with guys. They can do whatever but the moment their woman steps out of line, all hell breaks loose.” Gaby said rubbing your back. “Yeah, I guess. You got any pajamas I can borrow?” You asked. “Yeah, there in the closet. I’ma knock out Y/N. Just relax, take a bath and put your mind at ease. Goodnight tiger!” Gaby said jokingly. You took a long bath then laid down in the guest bedroom. You just thought about Tig and if he was thinking about you.

________________________________

Tig sat at the kitchen table in the house and just started to think about everything. He regretted cheating in you because you were his everything. You stuck by him while he was in jail and loads of club bullshit tat most women would’ve ran over. You stood your ground and didn’t flinch when ATF came harassing the club. He loved you more and more everyday but he knew he fucked up back this time, and he realized just how fucking crazy you were. “She’ll be back Tiggy, that girl is crazy for you.” Gemma said opening the front door with Tara right behind her. “What are you two doing here?” He said squinting his eyes because they turned on the lights. “Jax said to come here and bring you food. “Nah, I’m good though. Thanks ladies.” He said trying to kick them out. “Sweetheart she’s gonna walk in that doorway tomorrow morning just wait and see what I tell you and we wasn’t staying no ways. We just came by to drop the food off. Stay strong Tiggy, I know women and she’ll be back.” Gemma said. “Yeah, hope your right hun. See ya later Doc.” He said closing the door on them. Tig ate and then sat on the couch to watch tv. He moved his bike into the garage so in case you did come home you wouldn’t turn away because he was there. 

The next morning you woke up and got dressed in a hurry. You wanted to get home and lay down in your bed because you knew Tig would be at TM. Gaby went to work early so you let yourself out. You pulled up in the drive way and walked to the door. You opened the door and the house was quiet, you made your way to the shower, taking off your clothes as you walked to the bathroom. You turned on the water and hopped in . You got out and realized you forget to get a towel, “Fuck!” You walked to the hallway closet and got a towel. Before you could wrap it around you, you closed the closest door and saw Rat. You screamed, “What the hell are you doing here?!” His eyes were covered but he said, “I’m sorry, I was helping Tig in the back yard.” “Tig’s not even here you dumb ass!” “Here I am baby.” He said to you out of no where. “Get out of here Rat.” Tig said to him, and he took off to the door. You were looking at Tig like he was crazy because you didn’t know where the hell he came from. “I put my bike in the garage. We need to talk.”

_________________________________

Once you got dressed, you walked to the living room where you found Tig sitting on the couch. “What’s up?” You asked. “You’re acting like everything that happened in the last two days hasn’t happened baby. I don’t know about you but I just want to forget about all that bullshit.” Tig said staring into your eyes. “Tig you fucked another bitch and I fucked another guy to get back at you, we can’t just act like that didn’t happen for fucks sake. What if you try to get me back? Then this is a never ending cycle until one of us kills one another.” You said “Look baby, I don’t want this to go on any longer. I screwed up and then you did the same in an attempt to get back at me, I wish you would’ve just beat me over and over instead of screwing some random guy in a bar restroom but who am I to say shit? But I do know that we love each other and I can’t and won’t let this break us Y/N.” Tig said seriously. You & Tig never had conversations like this because they were just awkward. You knew he loved you and he knew that you loved him, end of story. To actually hear him say this to you made you feel good.

“Tig, I love you. I am just hurt. How do I know you mean it? You guys are around whores all day?” You said and he looked down. He got on the floor and came to you on his knees, “You are the only woman I lust for and that will never change. I swear to you on my life that this will never happen again.” “Okay Tiggy, I will never do that to you again.” You said looking at him dead in his eyes. He smiled at you and said, “I’ll kill the next man that touches you, I almost killed the guy at the bar.” You shook your head. “Really Alex? You’re gonna kill the moment like that?” “You left me here for dead with that boiling hot water Y/N.” He siad. You both started laughing. “How’s your face?” You said touching the burn scars. “You know I can take a few marks, I just can’t take you leaving me doll.” He said kissing you. “I’m not going anywhere Tiggy.” You said smiling.

11 Powerful Mantras to Attract True Love and Happiness

Written & Edited By: Power of Positivity - Website

Everyone on this Earth deserves love and happiness, but many people look for these things in the wrong places. Believe it or not, both of these represent states of being that anyone can achieve by focusing their thoughts and intentions on love and happiness, and then following through with action.

Many of us feel disconnected and frazzled in our daily lives, often looking for something more that can’t be found in a job, a salary, material items, or other relationships. In fact, we often overlook one of the most powerful sources for love and happiness – ourselves! You can unlock more of your “superpowers” by utilizing the following mantras to reconnect you with your spirit. These can also help you remember that you have the capability to shift any negative or heavy thoughts into transformative, positive ones.

Use these 11 powerful mantras to create love & happiness in your life:

1. “I love myself, no matter what.”

I use this affirmation daily to help me remember that even when I make mistakes or have negative thoughts, I will love myself through it all. If you allow love to move through you, you will be able to express that love more easily to others. Simply put, we all actually ARE love, so saying this mantra aloud each day will remind you of your true state of being and bring you peace in times of both triumph and adversity.

2. “I am an infinite being, capable of extraordinary things.”

Most of us go through life limiting ourselves and not fully owning our potential. When you say these words to yourself, you become aware of your own power and will have a lot more confidence throughout the day to accomplish goals. Remember, you were created for a specific purpose, and the Universe is waiting for you to realize that and unleash your true power as a human being.

3.“I am in complete control of determining my emotions.”

When you let people or circumstances control your feelings, you deny yourself the ability to control your own emotions. You give away your power and allow other people’s opinions to destroy your state of mind. If you decide each day to become your own master and take charge of your feelings, you will immediately feel happier knowing that nothing outside of you can ever take away your bliss.

4. “I AM.”

How many times have you or others put a label on who you are? Probably more times than you can count. Labels only serve as ways to categorize people, because we were all taught from an early age to describe people based on characteristics. However, when you do that to yourself, you automatically negate your individuality. You place yourself in a box, bound to the implications of that label. For example, let’s say you feel depressed, so you tell your mom “I AM depressed.” Of course you will feel that way since you have placed that label on yourself. However, by choosing to acknowledge the fact that you exist, you can simply say “I am.” This takes an enormous weight off your shoulders once you give up the need to subscribe to a label that someone else created.

5. “I accept abundant love, happiness, and positive energy into my life.”

Just by saying this, it will automatically lift your energy levels and get you in a positive mindset to start the day. Everyone deserves an abundance of joy and love in their lives, but not everyone believes it. You must believe that you are deserving of positivity, love, and abundance in order to receive it. The Universe responds to your energy every second, so make sure you put out into the world what you would like to receive.

6. “I am not a drop in the ocean. I am the entire ocean in one drop.”

Rumi originally said this, and the meaning behind it still holds true. Essentially, it’s saying that you are not just a part of this universe, but you ARE the universe. You are not just a part of the ocean, you ARE the ocean. You are both a part and the whole at the same time. You have a significant role to play in this existence, and the whole Universe would be altered if not for your presence here on Earth. If you believe that, it will greatly help you along your path in life. You must believe you matter to believe you’re worthy of both love and happiness.

7. “I love myself exactly the way I am.”

Regardless of where you’re at in life and where you want to go, love yourself anyway. Be kind to yourself anyway. Even if you want to lose thirty pounds, or make more money, or change careers, or live elsewhere, realize how far you’ve come and be thankful for what your journey has taught you so far. Take away the conditions surrounding the love you give to yourself, and instead practice unconditional love. Loving yourself no matter the circumstances takes courage and practice, but if you give yourself permission to love the entirety of who you are, you will attract that energy back as well. Plus, it will give you a greater sense of self-worth.

8. “I will stay true to who I am at all times.”

It’s easy to cave into peer pressure and just go with the status quo to avoid making waves. However, this will only stifle your true spirit and make you feel disconnected with yourself. Be brave and stand up for what you believe and what you feel in your heart to be true. Not only will you increase your self-respect, but others will actually respect you more for standing up for yourself, even if you’re standing alone.

9. “I am thankful.”

I call this the “attitude of gratitude.” It’s so important to remind ourselves often of all our blessings in life, because we can easily take them for granted and focus on everything we don’t have instead. If you want to feel happy, just be mindful of all your blessings, and remember all those things you have that many don’t: food, water, shelter, clothing, safety, etc. Get in the habit of expressing your thanks to the Universe, and you will soon find you have even more to be thankful for.

10. “Every day is a new beginning.”

If you feel like you have taken the wrong turn in life, remember each sunrise gives you a chance to take the right turn. Each day you wake up holds endless opportunities for you to make your life the one you want to live. You can create the reality you want out of any circumstances, and if you can read this right now, you have the same chance as anyone else at manifesting the world that you want to see.

11. “I will observe myself, free of judgment.”

We can either be our own best friend, or our own worst enemy. It all depends on our outlook about ourselves. If you look at yourself as an incompetent, anxious, negative, unworthy, untalented individual, your reality probably won’t be that enjoyable to you. You will see everything as you see yourself: dark, dreary, and hopeless. However, if you simply acknowledge the fact that you are a spiritual being having a human experience, and realize that mistakes and imperfections come as part of the package deal, you will experience a much more positive reality. Learn to look at yourself without having to comment. You don’t always have to have something to say about yourself – you can simply sit back, observe, and allow the Universe to flow through you.

Shared With Love. Peace & Blessings, Our Journey to Balance

| 19.03.16 | Hello! Here’s a tiny brain dump for my language learning tips to cheer up your Saturday. 

1.  Focus on getting that accent right. You can be the best at using the subjunctive mood in your class and know over 1000 words for snow, but if your accent sucks, it’ll be very hard for native speakers to understand you immediately. Also getting that accent down at the beginning will stop you from forming bad habits that might be tricky to get out of further down the line. 

2.  Shadowing is one of the best things you can do for speaking practice. It feels silly, but shadowing (talking alongside an audio file/native speaker, saying the exact same thing - not repeating after them) is great for practicing your accent and intonation and getting your mouth and tongue used to the speed of natural conversation. This is the book I use for Japanese.

3.  When you remember something, you’re actually remembering the last time you remembered it, rather than the first time you learnt or experienced it. (Does that make sense?)  This is why cramming does not work, but spaced repetition does. In Gabriel Wyner’s book, Fluent Forever, they suggest to learn a concept only enough until you’re able to reproduce it once without looking. Then afterwards, test yourself (recall, not review) multiple times. The longer you can go without testing yourself and still recall the information, the stronger those memories become.

And that’s it for now! Please feel free to share your own tips. :) ~ Pippa 

I’ve been a Chelsea fan since the year of 2005. It’s been 10 years since when I first became acquainted with The Blues, and the most effective reason behind why I started to follow this team that is not even a team of my country was José Mário dos Santos Félix Mourinho. He was so passionate, serious and effusive that even when I just stared at him, I became as passionate, serious and effusive as this guy, and I’ve found myself watching every single occasion of CFC since then. As a True Blue who knows what has Chelsea done with Mourinho since 2005, and as a True Blue who has troubles with the current state of the team; I stand against the plastic fans who say that Mourinho should be sacked from CFC. With him, we have won 3 Premier League titles, 1 FA Cup, 3 FLCs and 1 Champions League championship; in other words we have 8 titles that we conquered thanks to the existance of Mourinho. There is an aphorism that states “When we are good, no one remembers but when we are bad, no one forgets” which is typically used for expressing the summary of a common behaviour that is imposed on Chelsea. This is also what has been imposed on Mourinho this season.

Remember? Last year Mou was the one who was appreciated for being the fastest man to reach 100 clean-sheets in BPL with us. Remember? He entered into the Guinness Book of Records for gaining most points (95) in a Premier League season and for having most games (77) unbeaten at home in the Premier League, again, with us. Yes, Chelsea is having hard times and yes, it makes me depressed as much as it depresses you. Yes, I am angry at the unnecessary transfers that Mou has procured but no, I don’t want him to leave.

I just don’t want him to be offended. And when he says “Chelsea cannot find a better manager than me,” I believe in him. This is not arrogance, this is not conceit; this is a statement of a guy who wishes the best for his team and the best is him. So please stop making the word of disgrace go with the surname of Mourinho. He is the grace. Everybody can have devil of a time, even if he is Mourinho. Just stick together. We may lose titles, we shouldn’t lose each other. You know that he is one of us. And you know, when we are good no one remembers, so we should.
