    CASE 1

    Side A

    Spoiler:
    Peyton

    Our love story isn’t exactly fairy tale material, but I think it’s beautiful in its own bittersweet way.

    The librarian ordered us to hide underneath the tables, when the shooter entered the library. We crouched underneath the same table, since you happened to stroll by my table when the first shots were fired. It felt so surreal. As if I was watching everything unfold through someone else’s eyes. My blood ran cold when I saw his legs approaching our table.

    I thought to myself, “This is it. I will stay seventeen forever” before my mind started counting all of the things I’d never get to experience in life. I stared into your eyes, not knowing what to do. You stared back, seemingly just as petrified as I was.

    Cold horror washed through me when he eventually crouched under our table and pointed the rifle at us. The next moment you threw your arms around me, shielding me from the bullet that entered your shoulder, causing a through-and through gunshot wound. The shooter was shot in the head by a member of the SWAT team before he could cause more damage. You were in too much pain to notice, but I watched as his knees buckled, making him fall to the floor. We’ve both relived that dreadful scene in the library at least a thousand times in our minds.

    It felt like an ocean had opened up between Eric and I and like we’d never be on the same side again, after the shooting occured. Eric was on sick leave on the day of the shooting. He was pretending to nurse a strep throat, while playing the new gta game that had recently been released. I knew that he couldn’t understand what I’d been through, even if he tried. Not just because he didn’t witness the shooting, but also because I’ve always suspected that he has the emotional intelligence level of an insect. We didn’t have the kind of relationship that encouraged sharing my innermost thoughts, like you and I do.

    Anyway, to truly understand another person, you must swim in the same waters that drowned them. So I turned to you for solace. It certainly wasn’t easy, but I knew that I had to do it.

    I eventually started experiencing classic symptoms of infatuation whenever I was around you. My heart would skip a beat whenever we locked eyes and I would get butterflies in my stomach when you were around. I started fantasizing about what it would be like if we were a couple, during the time when we confided in each other and grew closer. But I eventually hit a big fat wall of reality and thought to myself, “There’s no way in hell that he’d ever date me, after the way that I treated him before the shooting”

    I ruefully thought that we would eventually slink back to our opposite ends of the social spectrum and pretend like we’d never bonded. So I tried to annihilate the alternative world that I had invented in my mind, where we were in love. But the more you try to deny the attraction you feel towards someone, it just grows stronger.

    I wasn’t reluctantly attracted to you only because I thought my feelings for you weren’t mutual. I’m actually ashamed to admit this, but I secretly feared that I’d become ostracized and bullied if we were seen together. That I would lose all of my friends and be seen as a loser. But the heart wants what it wants. I didn’t want to be ashamed for being seen in public with someone that matters so much to me. I decided that it would be worth risking everything I had to be with you. I eventually came to discover that I like your friends (that have now become my friends as well!) a lot more than I liked my old friends, who were a bunch of fake and two-faced backstabbers.

    So anyway, I suggested that we should wear matching t-shirts designed for couples to school someday. Your t-shirt had the words, “my heart only beats for her” printed across the chest and my t-shirt had the words, “my heart only beats for him” printed across the chest. Cheesy, I know. But I wanted to prove to you and to everyone else that my love for you is so much more important than fitting in and that I’ve changed.

    Eric stared at us as if we’d told him to stab his eyes out with a pencil. What did I ever see in him? He’s such a walking cliché. The mean-spirited jock who picks on others in order to look better in comparison. That’s why I really don’t think you should dwell on any insults that he hurled at you in the past. Behind that cocksure facade, he is a very insecure individual. Trust me, I know him better than anyone else.

    Before the shooting, you had an attitude of gloomy resignation and your mouth always had a sulky pout to it. I thought you were boring and that you gave off irritatingly negative vibes. I also thought that you had no fashion sense. I’m ashamed to admit that I had such a negative opinion of you, because I know now that you had a damn good reason to be resentful and moody.

    You’re such a misunderstood individual in general. It saddens me that the majority of the people around you will never get to know how marvellous you are and how many wonderful qualities you possess, since you’re so introverted and only choose to open up to a select few. You deserve all of the love and appreciation you can get. But at the same time, I secretly like that you clam up around people that you don’t know well, since you’d probably already be taken by now! I can’t stand the thought of you giving your heart to someone other than me.

    Who would’ve thought that something good could come out of such a horrific and nightmarish incident? Well, I certainly wouldn’t say that I’m glad it happened. That would sound so morbid. But let’s face it, if the shooting hadn’t taken place, we wouldn’t have become a couple and I’d probably still be the superficial Peyton who places value on pointless things. Social status, an appealing physical appearance, expensive material possessions and etc. I’ve changed for the better ever since we became a couple. Thank you for turning me into a better version of myself.

    I’m so glad that we could wipe the slate clean and start over from scratch. I really liked the idea you had about re-introducing ourselves to each other on our first date, as if we’d never met before.

    Seth

    I wish that I could say that I took a bullet for you out of love. But as you know, the truth is that I loathed you back when I risked my life for you. I didn’t put my life on the line for you out of humanitarian selflessness either, like everyone else thought back then. I just wanted to put an end to my own suffering, so I thought to myself, “Why not sacrifice my miserable life for someone who actually seems to have a zest for life?”

    I used to refer to you as, ”Eric’s girl” in my mind, before the shooting took place. You were the kind of couple that would have to like be surgically removed from each other, in order to be separated. It kinda annoyed me that you seemed so dependent on him. Like a barnacle that would die without its host (sorry, I just had to make that joke).

    Before I got to know you, I used to think that you were a stereotypical ditzy and bitchy cheerleader. You used to look at me as if I was a bug on a windshield. It’s incredible how much your opinion of another person can change, once you truly get to know them well, huh?

    Anyway, imagine how surprised I was to see you standing there on the other side of the doorstep, about two weeks after the shooting. I was like, “What the heck brings Eric’s airheaded girl here?”

    We’d been next-door-neighbors ever since my family moved into this house about three years ago. Whenever we happened to be taking out the trash simultaneously by happenstance, we’d normally exchange snarky comments.

    You handed me a basket of brownies that your mom made and asked if we could talk. I reluctantly invited you into my humble abode. I was starting to regret that I’d taken a bullet for you, since it had only resulted in a soft tissue injury instead of sending me to the grave.

    You suggested that we should get together in order to talk about the collective trauma that we’d experienced, on a regular basis. I’m really ashamed to admit this, but I only agreed to meet up with you because I wanted to see you suffer up close. In spite of having co-witnessed a traumatic incident just two weeks before you showed up to my house, I still harbored a lot of pent-up anger towards you and your clique, so I knew that I’d get to experience some schadenfreude if I got to watch you shedding tears because of what happened and stuff like that. I know, it sounds horrible.

    One of the symptoms of PTSD is having trouble falling asleep. So in the beginning we’d just lie on my bed or your bed side by side in the darkness, listening to soothing songs by Tycho and Com Truise, that made us feel as if we were the last two people on the galaxy. But we eventually started doing stuff that ordinary friends do, like playing games and watching TV.

    I certainly didn’t plan on falling for you, but I eventually started experiencing a magnetic pull towards you, much to my chagrin. I started noticing endearing qualities in you that I hadn’t taken any notice of before. Like the freckles on your nose (a girl without freckles is like a night without stars, if you ask me), your brilliant sense of humor, quick wit, playful aura, lopsided grin, rosebud lips, determination and protective nature among other things.

    Your bedroom window is lined up perfectly with mine. Your desk is facing the window, so I would sometimes watch you doing your homework, biting your lower lip as you were concentrating on whatever it is that you were working on, typing on your laptop and etc. through my window shutters. I used to feel like such a creep for watching you without your knowledge, but I couldn’t help myself. The sight of you was like water after an endless thirst, whenever we weren’t spending time together.

    Our parents thought we were dating, since we were spending so much time together. When your mother asked us if we were a couple, your face turned a dark shade of pink. My heart sunk to my stomach, since I thought it was because the mere thought of someone thinking that you’d be willing to date me was embarrassing to you. Now I realize that it was because you were into me, but didn’t want me to find out, since you thought that I didn’t feel the same way.

    When we had our first kiss while sitting on a bench in the deserted playground that belongs to our neighborhood, it felt like time stopped and the world held its breath. But the ecstasy only lasted for a couple of minutes. I thought to myself, “She’s only into me because I saved her. She’ll be running back to Eric once the reaction stage of trauma wears off”

    The worm of bitter insecurity would grow in my gut every time I saw you walking with Eric’s arm slung around your shoulders, in the hallways. I envied, hated and looked down on Eric simultaneously. I secretly despised and resented you for dating such a distasteful person. But at the same time, I wished that I possessed the traits that made you attracted to Eric and hated myself for it.

    So imagine how surprised I was when you informed me that you dumped Eric because you liked someone else. My stomach did a somersault. When I asked you who you dumped him for, you told me to play the guessing game. So I had to pose questions in order to get you to reveal the guy’s identity. It turned out that the guy was in fact… me. My intuition told me that it was me, but I ignored it in the beginning, since a part of me thought that it would be too good to be true.

    I’m happy to be a part of a union, after so many years of drifting, not being connected to anything. If you live to be 100, I hope I live to be 100 minus 1 day, so I never have to live without you.

    If You're Not the One

    If you're not the one then why does my soul feel glad today?
    If you're not the one then why does my hand fit yours this way?
    If you are not mine then why does your heart return my call?
    If you are not mine would I have the strength to stand at all?

    I never know what the future brings,
    But I know you are here with me now,
    We'll make it through,
    And I hope you are the one I share my life with

    I don't want to run away but I can't take it, I don't understand,
    If I'm not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am?
    Is there any way that I can stay in your arms?

    If I don't need you then why am I crying on my bed?
    If I don't need you then why does your name resound in my head?
    If you're not for me then why does this distance maim my life?
    If you're not for me then why do I dream of you as my wife?

    I don't know why you're so far away,
    But I know that this much is true,
    We'll make it through,
    And I hope you are the one I share my life with,
    And I wish that you could be the one I die with,
    And I pray in you're the one I build my home with,
    I hope I love you all my life

    I don't want to run away but I can't take it , I don't understand,
    If I'm not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am?
    Is there any way that I can stay in your arms?
    'Cause I miss you body and soul so strong that it takes my breath away,
    And I breathe you into my heart and pray for the strength to stand today,

    'Cause I love you, whether it's wrong or right,
    And though I can't be with you tonight,
    You know my heart is by your side

    I don't want to run away but I can't take it,
    I don't understand,
    If I'm not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am?
    Is there any way I can stay in your arms?

    CASE 2

    Side A

    Spoiler:
    It all started with my golden cow, Moscow, that I raised with my calves in my families farm. It wasn't literally gold, but the milk that I got from it was just as valuable, and it would make for the GRANDEST BUTTER IN ALL THE LAND. I remember when I first tried the butter with my Pa and he said it was the churn of the century. I said churn down for what. Pa said to spread the word across the kingdom and even put up signs that said ho made butter. I was proud of him then.

    Not much time passed after this when news came from the castle that the king was very ill. He was a sad king then. He had lost his wife and son during the birth, and later found out the child may not even be his own. He wasn't known to be the nicest king, so all naturally was the butt er of all the jokes across the kingdom. The people laughed at his agony and wished for his demise.

    One morning the royal doctor showed up at our door with a squire. He asked if we would be able to produce the highest quality milk for the king as it was the only possible cure for his disease and no other farmer would accept. Pa laughed and slammed the door and my heart sank. He may not have been the nicest king but here he was asking his people for help. I saw a change of heart in his actions.

    I quickly told pa I would be making my butter runs around town and gave Moscow a quick squeeze for some fresh gold. She wished me luck in her own way and I ran towards the castle as quickly as I could. I caught up with the doctor and gave him the milk, he was very happy and thankful. I knew I had done the right thing.

    The next day word had spread that the king was fully recovered and healthy. Once again some squires approached our farm, this time they were here for me and not my milk and said my presence was needed in the castle at once. I didn't hesitate and was escorted straight to the king. My king. As I approached he just stared at me with this dumb look on his face like he was hypnotized or daydreaming. When he finally spoke, he wanted to know why I helped him when nobody else would.

    I said that all things in this world are not just black and white like cows, there is also a gagillion shades of grey. That people are quick to judge, and I see a man who has had great misfortune and just needs help, and that I would try my uttermost best to help him as I would do for anyone in need.

    It must have been good because right after that he asked me to be his queen. I was shocked but I accepted and I knew it would bring the kingdom great fortune on all levels. Besides I really liked the sound of butter queen.


    Side B

    Spoiler:
    It has almost been a year now since I lost my wife and son during child birth and as a King it really affected me negatively. I gave up on finding true love and I believed no one can ever replace the love I had for my wife and days later I found out that my dead wife was cheating on me before she died and she had a baby with another man when I was away, I felt betrayed thus I succumbed to my grief and became a tyrant ruler unleashing my anger and wrath on my subjects since I could not deal with my misfortunes well. My subjects became afraid and terrified of me which was inevitable as I deserved it and then not long after that I became seriously ill.

    My doctor said I was suffering from a sever illness and said there is only one cure for it. A high quality milk mixed with some herbs can relieve my illness but there was a problem, my subjects and friends hated me and wanted me to die since I was a tyrant thus they told all the farmers in the kingdom to not offer their milk to the doctor as the doctor needed a high quality fresh milk gotten directly from the cow to heal me. When I heard the news from my doctor, I was shocked and sad thus I gave up hope in my life. I asked my doctor to ask my subjects one more time for their help promising I will be a better King if I am healed and he proceeded to ask the best farmer in the kingdom for his help. He rejected my plead for help but his daughter who was actually the farmer not her father decided to go behind her father's back and offered fresh milk to the doctor which healed me. When I was healed, to the annoyance of many of my subjects, I asked my servants to summon this lovely lady whom went out of her way to help a man who everyone hated.

    When she came, my heart stopped for a second as she was only lovely woman with a face full of warmth and kindness and I fell in love with her on sight. I asked her why she helped me and what she said made me realize that there are people in this world who not only have a beautiful face but also have a beautiful heart. She said " The world is not just black and white, it's a million shades of grey. That humans in general are quick to believe that which they wish to be true. She said she does not see me as someone who is evil just for the love of being evil, she sees me as someone who is in pain and troubled thus she sees me as someone who needs help and she will try her utmost best to help me as she would do for anyone who needs her help. I fell in love with her words and warmth thus I asked her to marry me. To my surprised she said yes, though I was a king, deep in my heart I know I don't deserve such a beautiful and kind lady but I am thankful that I met such a lady.

    Someone You Like

    I saw you
    With that ribbon in your hair
    Think that I began to stare
    Maybe I'll love you for a while
    A stranger at a table in a place
    And a really pretty face
    I wonder what happens when you smile
    I might never be your hero
    Never been one to fight
    That don't mean that I can't be your Valentine
    I won't be your savior either
    Couldn't even if I tried
    But I think I could be someone you like
    Someone you like
    Reading, in a coffee shop we share
    Hiding shy behind my hair
    Watching our movie in my mind
    I promise
    Promise not to fly away
    Make a story of today
    Come on give me a try
    I might never stop your sorrow
    Fix you up good as new
    But that don't mean that I can't hold your hand in mine
    I might never say I'm sorry
    Even if I done you wrong
    But I think I could be someone you like
    Someone you like
    I might never be your hero
    But I think I'd like to try
    And the way you look at me is your reply
    You got a lot to learn about me
    Maybe you could start tonight
    'Cause I think I could be someone you like
    Someone you like

    CASE 3




    Enigmatic

    Side A

    Spoiler:

    Alessandra

    He is my supervisor, my leader, my inspiration.
    I always hesitated making the move towards knowing him better, but one day I decided that I had nothing to lose and that it was necessary to fight for my feelings for Adrian. But it was not that easy. He would only talk to me about his life and his work experiences without any hints leaving me dreaming and wanting to get closer. He would critique my work dress code choices and organizational skills; but at the bottom of my heart, I knew he was doing it only to hide his real intentions and desires. I liked how easily he could control me by saying few words and making me want to stop everything I was doing, look at him through the open door to his office and have an unstoppable wish to hug him and tell him that I was there for him.
    I am grateful I was brave and curious enough to start learning more about Adrian.
    I remember how nervous I was during our first date. I was expecting a perfect date with a man of my dreams , but that experience exceeded my expectations.
    When I saw him coming my way with his confident walk, I stopped breathing, my heart was beating fast, and I wanted to fade away from a delightful feeling of spending time together with Adrian. I found myself lost in the delectable sight of the most enchanting brown eyes staring at my shyness and that slight smirk I can never forget. I felt my heart filled with joy, and warmth spread all over my body.
    That moment seeing him relaxed and enjoying himself for the first time helped me realize I fell in love. I truly fell in love with Adrian's snow-white smile, mesmerizing eyes, masculine voice... I was a bit afraid of what I am getting myself into, but I wanted to experience it all; it was unstoppable and uncontrollable. Inner me was singing ballads from that wild feeling, I was in heaven and happiness simply surrounded me. I didn't want it to go away from my real happiness.
    The softness of his touch, melting in his embrace, taste of his kissing... I want to close my eyes next to him every night and wake up every morning with a smile on my face from looking at Adrian dreaming. As soon as he opens his eyes, I want to see joy deep in there. I have never felt so much affection towards somebody before meeting my man. And I can call him my man now. I can spend hours just looking at him sleeping, feeling him hugging me tightly. I ask for nothing more. Even silence is enjoyable when we are next to each other.
    The feeling of love has no judgment and no limit; it is omnipotent. Two hearts feel each other, they want to be together and to create one strong unity. That's how I felt towards Adrian, my heart dissolved in the endless love towards him.
    I am his downfall, I am his muse
    His worst distraction, his rhythm and blues


    Side B

    Spoiler:

    Adrian

    I came to her life unexpectedly. She saw me as her mentor, she tried to always understand me. She viewed me as her dream man. She told me later after we got closer that I was the ideal representation of everything she ever wanted. She could never say no to me and would sometimes freeze when she saw me approaching her. My Alessandra, a fragile angel. At first, I was strict but still kind because that is my agenda of treating people. But I always cared for her deep inside of me, I never wanted to disappoint her. I wished to be a magical figure for her imagination.
    From her hints and slight touching my hand when presenting documents, all I could think about was carrying Alessandra to any place she wanted to be at that particular time.
    I did not want to push her away from me with my stubbornness; soon I started doing anything to help her with everything she needed. I trusted her, she never let me down. I chose her to be the one who makes all the difference in the world for me because I saw her passion and stamina from the very beginning. It attracted me, I could never betray her.
    When she agreed to go on our first date, I could not stop thinking that my dreams have finally materialized. Is it happening for real? Is she a fruit of my wishful thinking or is she really an angel standing and waiting for me blushing in her short white dress? Am I sleeping and seeing the most pleasant dream of her flittering like a butterfly towards me? I have vividly imagined that scene in my mind before, but I have never thought it would become a reality one day. She confessed to me that she had almost no strength seeing me appear in front of her in a different light, more personal, more like she saw me in her own dreams. My angel was too joyful that she was finally next to me, and I was in heaven because I had a chance to win her heart over.
    I never wanted to let Alessandra down, not with my actions, words, or my feelings. She is my muse, she makes me believe I can conquer anything.
    My love to Alessandra is something ethereal. It lifts my whole spirit up in the sky. It gets me in the good mood seeing her smile. I want to experience everything with Alessandra, the joy and sorrow of our lives together. I wish to gift her my soul and steal all of her worries away. It gives me so much indescribable desire to come home every day to see my woman and share our happiness together.
    I have no fear of losing my angel, we belong to each other. I see it in her eyes and there is nothing better than hugging Alessandra and whispering to her how much I love her.
    I close my eyes knowing the support and happiness we give each other has no boundaries and no limits. I am where I want to be with whom I desire to be.
    She is my downfall, she is my muse
    My worst distraction, my rhythm and blues

    John Legend All of Me

    What would I do without your smart mouth
    Drawing me in, and you kicking me out
    Got my head spinning, no kidding, I can’t pin you down
    What’s going on in that beautiful mind
    I’m on your magical mystery ride
    And I’m so dizzy, don’t know what hit me, but I’ll be alright

    My head’s under water
    But I’m breathing fine
    You’re crazy and I’m out of my mind
    'Cause all of me
    Loves all of you
    Love your curves and all your edges
    All your perfect imperfections
    Give your all to me
    I’ll give my all to you
    You’re my end and my beginning
    Even when I lose I’m winning
    'Cause I give you all, all of me
    And you give me all, all of you

    How many times do I have to tell you
    Even when you’re crying you’re beautiful too
    The world is beating you down, I’m around through every move
    You’re my downfall, you’re my muse
    My worst distraction, my rhythm and blues
    I can’t stop singing, it’s ringing, in my head for you
    My head’s under water
    But I’m breathing fine
    You’re crazy and I’m out of my mind

    'Cause all of me
    Loves all of you
    Love your curves and all your edges
    All your perfect imperfections
    Give your all to me
    I’ll give my all to you
    You’re my end and my beginning
    Even when I lose I’m winning
    'Cause I give you all of me
    And you give me all, all of you
    Give me all of you

    Cards on the table, we’re both showing hearts
    Risking it all, though it’s hard
    'Cause all of me
    Loves all of you
    Love your curves and all your edges
    All your perfect imperfections
    Give your all to me
    I’ll give my all to you
    You’re my end and my beginning
    Even when I lose I’m winning
    'Cause I give you all of me
    And you give me all of you

    I give you all, all of me
    And you give me all, all of you​

    So there I was 360 no scoping Counter-Terrorists as they tried to cross past me and my A-W-P when I heard the call to reposition towards the beta target from the most handsome Terrorist I ever did lay eyes on. Stood exactly six feet tall with the most amazing graffiti on his P90 that I have ever seen. So there we were, pushing towards our target and being the gentleman he was let me go first (cough baited cough) as we cleared tunnels to set up for our attack.

    Plan of attack was simple, attack. Once again being the gentleman he was allowed me to go first which I took as an oppertunity to show off my unbelievable skill with the A-W-P which led to one of the best displays of skill since Commander Heaton took out those Brits. He wanders in blasting his P90 off in all directions but alas... they are all dead. We plant the device and fall back to base where we get to know each other better.

    Couple months down the line of seeing each other he surprises me with a holiday to Italy where we go out one night for a lovely meal together which is when he got down on one knee and proposed! After that we decided to celebrate by hunting some scrawny little birds, just feathersome bones.

    Spoiler:
    You’d like to hear about our love story and the first time we met? Oh yes… I remember it well! I was a separatist on holiday in Morocco, and he was a member of the 1337 krew working a job there. I had just finished up with some work in Harz, Germany with some of my Balklan and Phoenix Connexion friends. We had some… business… to attend to at a local nuclear power plant and it went down with a bang, haha!


    I decided I would take a little break while things in that area settled down. I arrived in Morocco and hit up two friends who had been doing some business in the area. They nicknamed the town “Dust” because of the sandy environment, what a dumb name. We went for lunch and I ended up getting roped into a job for them as they were short on men. I’m not one to turn down a little overtime if the pay is good enough *winks*. We discussed terms and I was notified the job was taking place later that day. I purchased some goods and equipment to help me with the job and made my way to the rendezvous point.


    When I arrived, I was told the operation had started slightly early due to some dumbass Russian who had signed up for the job too. He had demanded people listen to him and when everyone told him to shut up, he stormed away shouting “rush B cyka bylat” followed by one of the others… What a deranged tool that Russian guy was. I’ve always known working with Russians in these kinds of environments was risky because they’re so volatile *sighs*.


    The other guys said we should go help them, so we headed towards the tunnel he rushed into. I had a quick look in the tunnel, then we proceeded when I gave the all clear. We grouped up in the tunnel to discuss our plan. In the middle of the conversation the dumbass Russian ran into the tunnel holding a flashbang! I don’t know where he got it from, but he was ready to throw it when suddenly he was shot in the chest. The flashbang went off and we were all blind, not knowing what was coming! I thought we were dead! I couldn’t even use my newly acquired graffiti covered P90…


    As the blinding effect wore off, I rubbed my eyes and in front of me stood a soldier pointing his gun at me, ready to fire. I thought to myself “this is it… live by the sword, die by the sword”. Just as he was about to pull the trigger, I saw him… my guardian angel… he came running up some stairs in the tunnel, jumping and shouting “WOMBO COMBO” before spinning 360 mid air and firing his sniper rifle! The soldier dropped to the floor and I was saved. It was the most incredible thing I’ve ever witnessed in my life, and he was the most beautiful thing I’d ever seen.


    We continued the mission into the B site. I let him go first as I knew he’d keep me safe and could handle whatever came our way. I rushed into the site shooting my P90, but everyone was already “dealt with”. I couldn’t believe this guy… he was an angel… OF DEATH. We managed to plant the “device” on the site and fell back to our original rendezvous point. We spent the night getting to know each other. It was very romantic. He even showed me his gun, and I showed him mine *wink wink*. Another successful business venture that went up with a bang, in more ways than one! Hahahahahahaha!


    After a few months of travelling the world for business purposes, I decided to treat him to a holiday in Italy. He said he’d never been before. I had a friend who was a chef at a fancy restaurant there, who got us on the guest list. We were suited up and had a lovely 3 course meal. At the end of the night I looked him in his sunglasses and said, “would you be my brother in arms for life?”. I got down on one knee and proposed. He said yes! I was so pleased. We decided to go hunting the next day, but for some reason the only animal we could find were chickens! I hate those scrawny little birds…

    Guy Love

    Let's face the facts about me and you, our love unspecified
    Though I'm proud to call you "chocolate bear"
    The crowd will always talk and stare.

    I feel exactly those feelings too
    And that's why I keep them inside
    'cause this bear, can't bare the world disdain
    And sometimes is easier to hide.

    Than explain our guy love, that's all it is
    Guy love he's mine I'm his
    There's nothing gay about it in our eyes.

    You ask me 'bout this thing we share...

    ...and he tenderly replies.

    It's guy love...

    ...between two guys.

    We're closer than the average man and wife.

    That's why our matching bracelets say Turk and J.D.

    You know I'll stick by you for the rest of my life...

    You're the only man who's ever been inside of me!

    Whoa whoa! I just took out his appendix.

    There's no need, to clarify...

    Oh no?

    Just let it grow more and more each day.
    It's like I've married my best friend...

    But in a totally manly way!

    Let's go!
    It's guy love, don't compromise,
    The feeling of some other guy.
    Holding up your heart into the sky.

    I'll be there to care through all the lows.

    I'll be there to share the highs.

    It's guy love, between two guys.

    And when I say, "I love you, Turk, ",
    It's not what it implies.

    It's guy love
    Between...
    Two...
    Guys.

    They say trust is a hard thing, how can you trust someone you don't know?
    Well, that is something I stuck by. That was my way of life.
    But it all changed the day I met you.
    I was introduced to you in abnormal way, and my initial thought was "Do I trust him" "Does he even know me, would he think I'm just another random?"
    As I thought about this, I went with my gut...and thought "he probably wouldn't care about me"
    so...I ended up being mean than kind. That ended up being "our thing"
    Whenever an event came up, I thought "I have to tag him, we have to have fun!"
    Which leads to today...is trust a hard thing? Yes, but sometimes it can lead to something fun since it lead to this event!

    I was always a lone wolf. On my path I've seen people come and go. When you appeared in my life on that particular night you awakened something in my careless and selfish soul. I was even willingly to set my goal for revenge aside. My body was unable to stay yet my heart was unwilling to leave. Blinded by vengeance you still stood by my side. As I beat that demon and fulfilled my promise our time truly came to fruition.
    They said I'll fall and I'm not getting far...
    They said my hype will only last for a short time. There was a special someone who believed otherwise. You put your trust in me. For that I shall be grateful.
    Everyone will know my rage, my hatred. Except for you, all I have for you is love.

    Spoiler:
    It was a stormy morning with blue and dark skies however that didn't stop the buzzing of activity within the Convention Center. As I walked among the crowd getting sly mischievous looks and funny remarks of "I need healing," I couldn't help but laugh from such intensity of the overwatch cosplay community. I dressed as the Mercy Imp skin while my two friends dressed as Ana and Moira. Three support mains within a crowd of genji, mcree, and widow DPS tricks. As we traveled from booth to booth of merchandise their was a vaguely moderate looking genji tailing from behind.

    It didn't faze me till I realized he was following behind for some time. Eventually I had enough and turned around sharply as did my fellow girls.

    "My dude why you keep following us?"

    "Shit girl why else? I need healing from you ladies."

    "First off I'm not your girl secondly back the hell off please."

    "Oh come on baby don't be like that," he starts to grab my arm but I pull back.

    "Back off dude," my Moira friend said sternly.

    "Make me you shit," he intended to grab my arm one more time until suddenly another arm grabbed his in a deadlock. I look up to meet the most intense yet alluring blue eyes I've ever seen.

    "I think you need to back off dude before we get security to kick your punk ass out of this convention," the stranger said while wearing the classic reaper skin cosplay. He had a nice built but also lead structure that suited him nicely in his reaper cosplay outfit, looked the part to a T.

    "Jesus fine whatever lame nerds," the genji snatched his hand away and porcedded to walk away fiercely. We all just stare till eventually he is out of sight and out if mind.

    "Thank you for that it's apperciated," I say lightly in a thoughtful tone.

    He smiles bright and wide,"Not a problem anytime. If you guys still feeling uneasy you can hangout with me and my friends?" He gestured towards his friends Soldier 76 and Mcree cosplayers both waved tentatively smiling.

    "Hells yeah ladies come on! It'll be fun," my Ana friend said lightly with a energetic voice.

    "I'm down," Moira mentioned right after. Everyone looked towards me next and I sheepishly smiled and nodded my head.

    "Woooooooo," Solider 76 said with glee while we laughed at his antics. Mcree shook his head at his friend and all of us started walking towards the next both. Although Reaper stayed back behind me while the others chatted among themselves.

    "You sure you are ok?"

    "Oh yeah thank you very sweet of you to ask I'm doing a little shaking but I'll do ok."

    "Good I'm here if you need to talk about it someone as beautifully cute as you shouldn't have uneasiness within their eyes in a painful way." I blushed a little and smiled lightly at him he smiled back with a dazzling spark in his eyes.

    "What's your name," he asked very shyly I almost couldn't hear him through the crowd.

    "My name is Cassandra, yours?"

    "The names Apollo," he gestured his hand out to me in a polite gentleman way I shook it and nodded. We walked in silence for a bit until we reached more merchandise booths with Overwatch. We ventured towards that way and started having fun looking at all the cool exciting new merch on the tables. Honestly his friend 76 and my friend Ana both were acting like silly shits. However it was hilarious and the other two serious friends of ours couldn't help but laugh as well at their antics.

    It was a good time, good company, and good positive vibes all around. I never knew how amazing it could be at overwatch conventions until now. I also realize with my shy ass how nice it is to make new friends with others. Sometimes it's very hard for me to do in making new friends so it as a breath of fresh air to befriend this interesting fellow.

    At the end of the day it started to die down within the convention and everyone started to exchange info with each other. Apollo gave me one of his reaper hellfire guns with his number on it. So of course I wrote my number on my caduceus blaster as well and handed it to him. His friends and mine were cat calling and hollering our way and I smiled at their antics. As I looked up into his blue eyes I realized in that moment we would forever be intertwined. I chuckled a bit this man right here will probably fall in love with me but not before I fall in love with him first sometimes that's fate for you.



    Side B

    Spoiler:
    It was the 1st day of a overwatch convention. The day was not too good, but inside it was good. Me and my boys were having a good time walking around and seeing how everyone came dressed or just to enjoy the atmosphere. I came dressed as classic Reaper while my dudes with me came as the younger Soldier: 76, and the other Classic Mcree.

    It was a good time seeing how other people came in their cosplay. We were being acting some fools with each other and some other people who were having some fun too.

    But not to far away from us there was something sinister going down. Some shabby looking Genji looked like he was stalking a trio of ladies dressed as support characters. I told my boys I was going to check on the situation and started moving closer.

    By time I got close enough it seems that punk Genji seemed to grab at the Mercy cosplayer. I had thought he would have taken that as the last hint, but nope. He wanted to try again. I felt compelled to step in by then because I did not want the rest of the day ruined for them.

    I grabbed him before he could try again and firmly suggested he cut his shit out before we got him kicked out. For a second I thought that he would not be enough even as hard as I stared him down. But he thought better and walked away talking shit.

    We watched him go then I turned back to the 3 young ladies with a smile. They all dressed well dedicated to their character. One was a Moira, another as Ana, and the last one dressed as Mercy in her Imp skin. While the other 2 looked nice, the Mercy cosplayer really pulled off her costume. Really took me

    She thanked me for the assist, and I replied in kind. I then asked if they wanted to hang out with me and my boys who were watching from not to far away. I looked at them all as I asked but my eyes were locked mostly on Mercy and hers on mine.

    The Ana seemed all for it with the Moira seconding. So we all waited looking at Mercy. She gave the cutest smile and nodded. So we all walked to where my boys were. When we reached my friends, my boy cosplaying Soldier: 76 started acting the fool as his way of starting a chat. I hung back a bit to check on Mercy.

    She was only a little annoyed by that clown, but good all the same. I could not stop looking at her face. She really brought out the beauty to her look and I told her as much. She told me her name, Cassandra, and I told her mine, Apollo.

    We started going around with our friends to continue the fun. Soldier:76 found his partner in crime in Ana. They put on a show for us and everyone around. The Moira found it amusing while my buddy Mcree kept trying to act like an adult, but losing that battle as he could not help enjoying as well.

    This gave me some time to get to know Cassandra and she me. I wondered why she liked that Mercy skin. Cassandra told me she thought Mercy looked really pretty and loves the purple hair. I agreed that she does look pretty. Cassandra wondered with the sassies look which I was referring to. I returned that look with a grin and hoped that would serve as an answer.

    Eventually this day of the convention was coming to a close and it was time for us all to go. We would have continued the fun, but both parties had prior engagements. We all started exchanging info with one another.

    For Cassandra I wanted to make it special. So I had signed my number to one of my hellfire shotguns. To my surprise she had been thinking the same thing, as she produced her Caduceus Blaster. She said she would me hers if I showed her mine. That got a huge reaction from everyone else. I had a huge smile from that as well. But what I felt at that moment was truly in love with this girl.

    03 Bonnie & Clyde

    Look for me, Young, B
    Cruisin' down the west-side, highway
    Doing what we like to do, our way
    Eyes behind shades, this necklace the reason
    All of my dates been blind dates
    But today I got my thoroughest girl wit' me
    I'm mashin' the gas, she's grabbin' the wheel; it's true to the heart
    She rides with me--the new Bobby and Whitney
    Only time we don't speak is during "Sex and the City"
    She gets Carrie fever, but soon as the show is over
    She's right back to being my soldier
    'Cause mami's a rider and I'm a roller
    Put us together--how they gon' stop both us?
    Whatever she lacks, I'm right over her shoulder
    When I'm off track, mami is keepin' me focused
    So let's lock this down like it's supposed to be
    The '03 Bonnie and Clyde, Hov' and B

    All I need in this life of sin is me and my girlfriend
    Down to ride till the very end it's me and my boyfriend
    All I need in this life of sin is me and my girlfriend
    Down to ride till the very end it's me and my boyfriend

    The problem is you dudes treat the one that you lovin'
    With the same respect that you treat the one that you humpin'
    Dat ain't 'bout nothin
    If ever you mad about somethin', it won't be that, oh no, it won't be that
    I don't be at places where we comfy at
    With no be-atch; oh no, you won't see that
    And, no, I ain't perfect; nobody walkin' this earth's surface is
    But, girlfriend, work with the kid
    I keep you workin' at Hermes, Birkin' bag
    Manolo Blahnik, Timbs, aviator lens
    600 drops, Mercedes Benz
    The only time you wear Burberry to swim
    And I don't have to worry--only worry is him
    She'd do anything necessary for him
    And I'd do anything necessary for her
    So don't let the necessary occur, yup

    All I need in this life of sin is me and my girlfriend
    Down to ride till the very end it's me and my boyfriend
    All I need in this life of sin is me and my girlfriend
    Down to ride till the very end it's me and my boyfriend

    If I was your girlfriend
    I'll be there for you if somebody hurts you
    Even if the somebody was me
    (Break it down for 'em, B)
    Sometimes I trip on how happy we could be
    And so I put this on my life
    Nobody or nothing will ever come between us
    And I promise I'll give my life
    My love and my trust if you was my boyfriend
    Put this on my life
    The air that I breathe in, all that I believe in
    I promise I'll give my life
    My love and my trust if you was my boyfriend

    All I need in this life of sin is me and my girlfriend
    Down to ride till the very end it's me and my boyfriend
    All I need in this life of sin is me and my girlfriend
    Down to ride till the very end it's me and my boyfriend

    Introspection

    Whenever I called, you answered. Whenever I cried, you were there to wipe away my tears. Words can scarcely describe what you really mean to me but at the moment they are the only things I can use. Ever since that faithful day I met you, you never once faltered and always stayed strong for me. People seldom meet as children to stay together as adults. You were the only person I had after I was taken away from my family and given to foster care, you’re still the only person I have today but not for much longer.

    As I lay my eyes upon you laying down in this hospital bed, I can’t help but reminisce about the night everything changed for me. People entered my house and police officers took my parents away, I was given a new family that didn’t last and many others that met the same fate. Even if I were to see my mother and father today, I wouldn’t recognize them. Your face is the only one that I still recognize after all these years and it only gets more beautiful every day. I pray that today isn’t the last day I see you as it would be the last day I would dare looking at myself.

    Our dream was always to have a family to call our own as neither of us were ever blessed with the chance to grow up in a loving and caring home. This was all about to change but this happened. Nothing is ever simple in life and whoever pulls the string of destiny has a very sick and twisted sense of humor. Although I am powerless to change what the future holds or even the present, know that I will always love and cherish you with all my being.

    I have to go now. The only thing I have left is hope and the next few days will be the hardest in my life…

    Your Guardian Angel

    When I see your smile
    Tears run down my face
    I can't replace
    Now that I'm strong I have figured out
    How this world turns cold
    And it breaks through my soul and I know
    I'll find deep inside me
    I can be the one

    I will never let you fall
    I'll stand up with you forever
    I'll be there for you through it all
    Even if saving you sends me to heaven

    It's ok
    It's ok
    It's okayayay

    Seasons are changing and waves are crashing and
    Stars are falling all for us
    Days grow longer and nights grow shorter
    I can show you I'll be the one

    I will never let you fall
    I'll stand up with you forever
    I'll be there for you through it all
    Even if saving you sends me to heaven
    'Cause you're my
    You're mine
    My true love
    My whole heart
    Please don't throw that away
    'Cause I'm here for you
    Please don't walk away and
    Please tell me you'll stay
    Yeah
    Waohohaoh
    Stay
    Woaohoh
    Waohohoh
    Use me as you will
    Pull my strings just for a thrill
    And I know I'll be ok
    Though my skies are turning grey (grey)

    I will never let you fall
    I'll stand up with you forever
    I'll be there for you through it all
    Even if saving you sends me to heaven

    I will never let you fall
    I'll stand up with you forever
    I'll be there for you through it all
    Even if saving you send me to heaven

    I will never let you fall
    I'll stand up with you forever
    I'll be there for you through it all
    Even if saving you sends me to heaven

    I didn’t know which one was worse, going to a Valentine’s party alone or staying home alone on Valentine’s Day while everyone and their mothers was at the event of the year. Both options had the word alone as the common factor and both sounded...depressing, to say the least, so after thinking about my predicament for a while, it was clear that, no matter what I chose, I would still feel equally demoralized.

    To add salt to injury, this party was called “Our Name” and we were to go in pairs. I suppose the host wanted us to know that our inner split personality was not considered good enough company for this event. “Make an effort” she said, “Use Tinder” she said, but in the end, because I assume a lot of people were hopeless in getting a partner, she organized this sub-event in which all the forever alone(s) would be paired at random.

    I fell under that category, even if it was by choice.

    “You’re here, macho", said a familiar, playful voice. "I see you brought a ghost as your partner”.

    “Says the guy who brought his dog as his date”. I snaked back while I examined Lucas and the golden retriever he brought to the party. The dog was happily moving his tail. Definitely in the party spirit.

    “At least I have someone. Who can be a better partner for this party than my most loyal friend, right Minty?” Lucas asked the dog as if he could understand him and apparently he did because he barked once in response.

    This was going to be a long night. I needed a drink.

    As I quickly scanned the room looking for the bar, I recognized Marina and Setsuna sitting on a table to my far left. From the distance, I could see he was eagerly talking to someone, while to his left, Marina was absentmindedly looking away into the distance.

    Near them, a rainbow haired girl forced my attention to shift. I, for sure, was full on staring at her.

    “Everyone is divided in two groups” Lucas suddenly added. “They’re either going crazy on the dance floor or too drunk to even stand. This night will probably make the news” he excitedly explained but for some reason, I wasn’t registering a word he was saying.

    Who was this girl? I've never felt a pull like this before. She was so beautifully contradicting.

    She was standing alone but not looking out of place.

    I studied her carefully. Her body seemed fragile but her face was lit, burning, fierce. As I scanned her, my eyes stopped at her full lips and I wondered what her voice was like. My eyes drifted to her rosy cheeks and I wondered what rhythm her heart was playing. She was perfectly constructed. Perfectly combined.

    I was in a trance.

    I couldn’t speak, or hear, or breathe, or think but I still somehow knew what I wanted to do. What I needed to do. Losing hold of myself, I put my hands in my pockets and headed in her direction.



    Side B

    Spoiler:
    “Sweet child o’ mine is the best song”, a melodious voice claimed to the air.

    I lifted my head to see the source and to my surprise, the person was standing directly in front of me.

    Such a tall figure. Such a welcoming face.

    I was lost in his green eyes. They were colored like a forest, with the right shades at the right places. Strands of black hair peeked from behind his ears. A boyish, white smile illuminated his semblance. I couldn’t look away. I was trapped.

    So embarrassing.

    “I’m sorry?” I muttered, trying to snap out of this daze.

    “You have a Guns and Roses bracelet so I assumed you were a fan. Is that not the case?” he replied, again, with his melodious voice. I could hear it all day if he let me.

    “Welcome to the jungle is actually my favorite” I tried, hoping he didn't notice my shaky voice.

    “n-n-n-n-n-n-n-n knees” He sang, trying to emulate Axl Rose’s crazy style and for some reason, that made me relax. I couldn’t help but laugh, for the first time that night. The sensations he was making me feel, were somewhat liberating.

    Suddenly, the song less talk more rokk started playing and my body started moving on his own to its fast paced beat. It was one of my favorites.

    “Would you like to dance?” he asked, his hand extended in my direction as a confirmation of his invitation. I took it without hesitation and just like that, our night started.

    It is a lie that time stops when you meet the right person. It actually speeds up, and when it’s all said and done, you’re left wondering where the last three hours of your life went. Unfortunately, the night ended for me when I felt like it was just beginning.

    Mr. Stranger and I danced to a variety of symphonies. From rock to pop to ballads. We tried all sorts of shots at the bar. We talked about favorite foods, favorite hobbies, favorite bands, favorite anything. Conversation was fluid. Topics never ended and it was clear that Mr. Stranger had a great sense of humor.

    It was exciting, thrilling, fun.

    "I wish I asked his name", was all I could think of. It saddened me that Mr. Stranger had to leave early, so he could take home a friend who was so drunk, he was shouting that his dog just transformed into a horse. It is what it is. I guess I should forget about tonight.

    To lift my spirits up, I decided to retouch my makeup. I reached for the lipstick inside my purse when I suddenly felt a piece of paper. I took it out, unfolded it and a million emotions ran through me. There was a telephone number written on it and in very stylish letters, there was a message.

    "Let’s meet again" was all it said.

    CASE 9

    Side A

    Spoiler:



    Once upon a time, there was a gambling addict,
    named Yumeko who would go through lengths for gambling… which is none other than ME. :catwalk
    Dice, old maid, poker, Blackjack, Roulette, even idol singing, ALL kind of games. I am unbeatable :catbuff
    I got transferred to a high school full of uninteresting people,
    mainly Otakus debating god knows what:
    :breh

    "Why Naruto is best anime" :drake

    "Why [insert character]'s dick is bigger than the other" :camby

    or "why is this forum still alive" :dank

    etc


    ♥♥



    One fateful day, I was hired by the Otaku Mafia to pit against the other Otaku Mafia, via GAMBLING,
    in which the losing team loses their money supply and access to their Otaku merch...forever.....:wow

    Whatever, I just jump at the opportunity as long as I can gamble. Bring it on bitc-


    Hold up :heckk

    Who is that girl, hair as white as snow, eyes as blue like the sky,
    pose as majestic as a queen. Who is she? Some reason,
    I felt a jolt within my heart, as if I have hit the jackpot right there and then.
    We had our Poker faces on, yet we are so familiar with each other.
    Even after 10 Poker games, the result remains a tie. This woman plays it hard :catbed


    Throughout the games I learnt that the woman was called Kirari, the gambling queen.

    ♥♥♥


    After some time the Otaku mafia got impatient with us
    and did a sudden death poker game, stakes rose to sky high,
    enough to fuel them mountains of waifu dildos I mean pillows :carlton


    I got an amazing royal flush, is this the end game?
    I wonder, but it doesn't matter as long as Kirari is my end goal.
    We eyed each other as if we knew what to do immediately. :catshades


    ♥♥♥♥


    We revealed our hands slowly. The audience were staring in awe,
    little did they know I use my own knife hidden in my secret compartment, and :catstab
    the leader right away as he was right behind me giving orders, that SOB had no idea.
    Kirari did the same, and things go chaotic right away.
    Nothing will stop us from uniting with each other,
    I am not just some gambling addict. I am also a martial arts ADDICT :samuraicat.
    The otakus stand no chance.


    ♥♥♥♥♥


    During the heat of the fight, I unleashed my ultimate attack like
    and Kirari's face glow with delight, she knew I was her DESTINY.
    As I knew she is mine as well. All these stabbing spree was the most romantic sight of my life.
    We finally ended the fight with Kirari x Yumeko combo

    and ended everything. It was one hell of a memory, I will never forget.


    In the end we :catstab everyone, took the pile of money, our victory, and Viva La Vegas bitches.​



    Side B

    Spoiler:

    Once upon a time there was a gambling queen, named Kirari who makes money by gambling…aka ME. :catshades. Blackjack, Roulette, Craps, Baccarat, and my favorite – Poker :cat You name it, I’ll make it rain. :cat
    :love :love :love

    I go to a high school full of idiots, mainly Otaku idiots debating nonsense topics such as:

    Why Boruto is GOAT :wow

    Why NB > NF :catsweat
    And why PC is Master Race :dank

    Then one day, I was hired by the Otaku Mafia to pit against the other Otaku Mafia, via GAMBLING, where the losing team loses their money supply and access to their Otaku nerd shit...FOREVERRR. Otakus are so weird gosh:wow Of course I’m not going to lose. :cat Especially with games like Poker, things are going well until……
    :love :love :love
    DAMN. My opponent: hair as dark as the night, eyes as red as blood, and boobs as big as the Sun :catsun Who is she? Somehow, I knew right away that she is the one for me :catflowa No need for words. Although we had our Poker faces on, I knew she felt the same way too. After all, 10 Poker games later and the result still remains as a tie every single game. Playing hard to get? :catslut
    I learnt that the woman was called Yumeko, the gambling addict.
    :love :love :love

    :love :love :love
    We revealed our hands slowly. The audience were staring in awe, little did they know I use my own knife hidden in my sleeves, and :catstab the leader right away as he was approaching me. Yumeko did the same, and things go chaotic right away. Nothing will stop us from uniting with each other, I am not just some gambling queen. I am also a martial arts QUEEN :samuraicat.

    CASE 10

    Side A

    Spoiler:
    I was born of the Kingdom of Meinas. Our royal family has ruled for thousands of years, and the current ruler of our Kingdom was my father, King Alexander III. I had an older brother who I knew would succeed my father one day, but I always wondered what would be my fate. As a Princess of Meinas, I knew that would day I would be expected wed to a King of another realm. Marriage was the only way to establish a relative peace between two kingdoms in this war torn world.

    One day my father informed me that I would be marrying the Prince of the Sylanisa Kingdom, my heart beat and my cheeks blushed when I heard the news. I ordered my ladies in waiting to prepare me with the most beautiful wedding dress, jewels and tiara for my special day. Very soon I would be leaving the land I was raised in and my family forever, to spend the rest of my days with a prince in a foreign land that I had never met before, I was excited to see what was coming next in my love adventure.


    Side B

    Spoiler:
    Today was my wedding day, a marriage that was arranged by my father and a King from an enemy Kingdom. Apparently this wedding was to bring peace and prosperity to the land, but I rejected that. My ancestors have been fighting our enemies for thousands of years, destroying our enemies with blood and steel, why should we be any different? My father shook his head when he heard my complaints and attempted to educate me by informing me that some wars can be won with steel and blood, others can be won with love and marriage. I considered my father a coward when I heard that nonsense but I did by duty as a prince and obeyed him.

    When I first laid eyes upon my bride, I took back everything that I said. Seeing her in her beautiful white dress, her lovely jewels and tiara, it was love at first sight. I was truly speechless and honoured that I would be marrying such a lovely princess. Our marriage united our two kingdoms and brought peace to the land. Our love allowed us to create princes and princesses of our own. And together we ruled from our lovely castle for a long time.

    Breaking Free

    We're soarin', flyin'
    There's not a star in heaven
    That we can't reach

    If we're trying
    So breaking free

    You know the world can see us
    In a way that's different than who we are

    Creating space between us
    'Till we're separate hearts

    But your faith it gives me strength
    Strength to believe

    We're breakin' free

    We're soarin'

    Flyin'

    There's not a star in heaven
    That we can't reach

    If we're trying

    Yeah we're breaking free

    Oh, we're breakin' free

    Ohhhh

    Can you feel it building
    Like a wave the ocean just can't control

    Connected by a feeling
    Ohhh, in our very souls

    Very souls
    Ooooh

    Rising 'till it lifts us up
    So every one can see

    We're breakin' free
    ...
    We're soarin'
    Flyin'
    There's not a star in heaven
    That we can't reach
    If we're trying
    But're breaking free
    Ohhhh runnin'
    Climbin'
    To get to that place
    To be all that we can be
    Now's the time
    So breaking free
    So breaking free
    Ohhh, yeah
    More than hope
    More than faith
    This is true
    This is fate
    And together
    We see it comin'
    More than you
    More than me
    Not a want, but a need
    ...
    Both of us breakin' free
    Soarin'
    Flyin'
    ...
    There's not a star in heaven
    That we can't reach
    If we're trying
    Yeah we're breaking free
    Breaking free
    Were runnin'
    Ohhhh, climbin'
    To get to the place
    To be all that we can be
    Now's the time
    Now's the time
    So we're breaking free
    Ohhh, we're breaking free
    Ohhhh
    You know the world can see us
    In a way that's different than who we are

    Plenty of time to read all of these stories, but you can only pick one. They seem to be written well for the most part so it’s hard to choose.

    I think I finally know which one I'm truly going to vote for I read everyone's by now just got done with it. I must say theirs some good entries that we're breathtakingly amazing but the one that has truly caught my eye was CASE 8. I liked it because not only do I love that song I think it ties in perfectly well with their stories that it was pretty damn divine honestly. My vote is for CASE 8.

    Impressed by the talented writers in this forum :obamabury. The entries were all very creative, some fantastically engaging while others felt like real events, almost bittersweet even. Since can only pick one, very hard choice to make indeed.

    I voted for Case 8. I liked the presentation of the sequence of events linking both stories together. The couple's song choice also felt kind of fitting. Listened together, it brought out the surreal "moment" of their meeting<shy intro<dance well. Ending it with the start/hints of the possible future together was well done.

    After a tough choice I ended up voting for Case 8.

    It took use of the "Our Name" theme and cleverly tied it into the story. I also like how in Side A we are introduced to Lucas and Minty, and they play a role towards the end of Side B with why the two new lovebirds have to part. It was a nice connection. All around it was a really nice story and it made me hope the two will meet again. While I wasn't particularly fond of the song choice, I appreciate the extra effort in making a custom video to go with it~

    Nice job everyone~
