Re: Status of the next installment of my story.


I’m writing because I’m really anxious for this story to be released. I haven’t heard from you in a

while and I’m concerned that you aren’t making me a priority. I know you were working with that

other girl. But honestly, you and I had a deal first. I don’t want to sound bitchy, but things are

really getting crazy. I’m just not sure what will happen next. Please contact me as soon as


*Hitting send on my computer, I get up from my chair and grab my journal.  Maybe I’ll find some measure of peace by writing a few things down.*

Dear Journal,

Day number, I don’t remember.  He is gone and I don’t know how to survive. I don’t believe he is gone forever from me.  I just can’t.  I’m trying to cope but it’s not easy.  My mom is worried about me as is everyone else.  I try to find comfort in reading his journal.

I’ve made a real mess of things.  I’ve sentenced four boys in my life to hell.  One, in some sort of weird coma just because he loved me.  I should have loved him back and then.

Another, the boy I claimed to love was damned because I couldn’t let him go.  I couldn’t leave well enough alone because I was selfish.

Another could be re-trained and lost to us forever.  At lease how we know him now.  And all for helping me, no really for helping all of us. 

And another.  I’ll never forget… I never forgot those words he said to me.

All of them were hell bound because they got involved with me.  What do I have left?  A journal.  His journal. 

You would think I was a freaking angel the way he describes me in it.  I am not deserving of his words, his love, his sacrifice.

I will make this right somehow, someway. 

One way is through my story.  It needs to be told and not for me.  But for all those around me who did everything they could to protect me and be there for me.  This is for them.


*A chime on my computer lets me know I have mail.*

I totally haven’t forgotten you.  I’ve been extremely busy and just so you know people are

asking about your story.

In fact, Sonya posted a picture of who she though Sebastian looked liked on my facebook

page.  See the attachment and let me know what you think.

Don’t fret, I plan to post two teasers about your story by the weekend.

Are you hijacking my blog again????

Anyway, I have to get back to work.  I promise to talk to you soon.  I need an update

of how things are going.  Especially with the boys.

*Clicking the link above, I get this view.*

*I’m not going to reply to her. At least not right away. It would serve her right.  Sebastian, as if I needed a picture to remind me just what he looks like.  I think I may just go on facebook and find this Sonya.  This guy is extremely close to the real thing.*

    Wow, Cristiano Ronaldo as Sebastian, that’s interesting. Would you share if you pictured anyone particular in your head while writing about Flynn or Sebastian , Mercy ?

      Sonya picked Cristiano and boy is he super hot! 🙂 I really didn’t have any guys in mind when I wrote the story. When I was looking around for pictures to possiblity do a book trailer, I came across the picture in the AOM tesaser #2 for Luke. I found one for Flynn too, that I love. But I don’t have the license for that one to post. Then I found Alex Pettyfer and thought he’d make a great Luke. Personally, I think Mr. Cristiano could make a good Flynn as well. The hair is kind of mohawk in that picture. At this point, I haven’t really found the perfect actor who could be my Flynn. Sonya gave me some good possibles. Any suggestions?
