~Chapter 9~

“Girl, you look so awesome!” Tim said as the hair dresser pulled the towel away from my head to release my new long dark red hair. “I love it!”
“I thought it was time for a change.” I said stepping out of the chair and paying the hair dresser. Tim dyed his hair blond and had it cut enough so he could style the front with gel.
“Now, where to?” Tim asked as we walked down the street, we passed a clothing store and Tim stopped. “Omg, Eliza, that outfit will look amazing on you!”
It was a a shirt that covered one shoulder and it was big enough for it to hang on the over shoulder. It also had a tank top underneath and a short pair of shorts.
We went in and bought that for me and Tim got some yellow neon bright sunglasses. I laughed when I saw Tim with his glasses on and then we heard the beats from a nightclub, just down the street from where we were.
It wasn’t late enough to go dancing, so we figured that going down to the beach and chilling there until the sun came down, sounded like a wonderful idea.
We sat down in the sand, just watching the waves crash against the beach. Tim turned and smiled at me, I smiled back.
“I know that you didn’t want to talk about it, but I just want to say thank you. Thank you for standing up to me.” Tim grabbed my hand he then looked back towards the ocean. “I really thought that you were a goner, when we brought you to the hospital.”
“I know.” I then felt my left side, my fingers brushed up against my cheek, feeling the small scar. I flashed back to Justin just beating me. I shook my head and turned to Tim. “How bad was I?”
“It was bad, but you’re a fighter. I just never want to see you like that. Ever. I mean it.” Tim looked serious, but I couldn’t help, but laugh. He then started to chuckle.
Tim looked around, as the sky was getting darker. He smiled and stood up. “You ready to party!?” He asked as he helped me up and I grinned.

“Hell yeah!” I yelled as we walked down to the night club.
The music was loud, but the beat was jumping. Tim and I just danced, until he fell down. He looked at me, his face was so red. “Ready for another one?” Tim asked.
I nodded as I watched him walk over to the bar. I then went back to dancing. That was until I felt a hand run down my arm. I started to grind on him to the beat. He spun me around and both of our hands were connected. I looked up and all I could see is his hair. He leaned in and said, “Keep shaking your ass like that and you’ll get unwanted attention.”
Under his hoodie, I saw him grin. I knew exactly who it was. I leaned in and whispered, “It got your attention, didn’t it?” I then walked over to the bar to find Tim talking to some guy. I figured that I would leave them be, so I found a spot on the other side of the bar.
“What can I get for you?” The bartender asked as I handed him my I.D.
“2 shots of whiskey. ” As I said that, I felt hands hug my waist.
“How about we go outside?” Michael as he whispered in my ear. I turned and shook my head no. “You can bring a drink with you.”
I grabbed the two shots, handed one to Michael. I looked towards the bartender and asked him for a Sex on the Beach.
“You take this shot and I’ll go.” I said. I downed my shot just like it was water. Then he did, placed the shot glass on the bar and grabbed my hand, pulling me out of the club, with my drink in hand.
“Where are w-we going?” I asked. I started to feel really drunk. We then walked down the boardwalk and once we were up front of this beach house, Michael stopped and sat down in the sand. “W-who’s p-place is this?”
“Ours.” He then pulled out of his pocket a lighter and a joint. “Remember this?”
“Yeah, those were the good times.” He then put the joint in his mouth and lit it. Once he took a hit, he handed it to me.
“Why did you stop?” He asked. I took a hit and french in-hailed the smoke, then passed it to him.
“Two reasons. One, my parents are cops and two, Justin didn’t like me smoking.” I said as I took off my flip flops and shoved my toes in the sand.
“That’s right.” He went silent. I took another hits off the joint and then handed it to him. He then looked at me, “Why did you say yes?”
I thought about it and they only reason I could think of, was that I would be safe with him. That and I really did love him. I then took a deep breath. “I don’t know. I thought he would keep me safe and he is the only guy who loved me for me. I did love him. I don’t know.”
“He didn’t love you for who you were. He changed you into someone he wanted you to be.” I laid down in the sand. Looking up to the stars. I started to cry.
“I-I know. Why would he do that? Why would he hurt me? Why?” I looked over to Michael, he looked over and wiped the tears under my eyes. I sat up as we both gazed into each others eyes.
“Because he’s a worthless piece of shit. You deserve better.” He then took another hit off the joint and came closer to my lips. He then blew the smoke into my mouth. He pulled away and gentle touch the side of my cheek. I blew out whatever smoke was left and stood up.
“I think it’s t-time for me to go to sleep.” I said, grabbing my shoes and walking up towards the new place we will all be staying in, together.
Michael then helped me to bed and as soon as I laid down, I fell right asleep.

Mom Talk: Being Afraid Of The Scale

Image result for stepping on a scale

When I wake up in the morning, the first thing I see in the mirror is me. Not just me, but the extra weight that hangs over, under my arms, under my chin, and the worse, the muffin top.

Ever since I’ve been little, I hated the scale. In school, I didn’t want to step on it and have everyone find out what my weight was. To this day, stepping on the scale scares me. I’m afraid of it being too high. I’m afraid of everyone knowing my number of how much I weigh.

It’s hard for me to even think about losing weight, because I always hear everyone around me saying, ‘Isn’t she too young to be big for that size?’. It has scared me, to the point where I was ready to give up on trying to lose weight and ignore the comments.

The comments would always come back to haunt me. Even after having kids, I still haven’t managed to lose the baby weight, but other mothers are so lucky and drop it at the snap of their fingers. I’ve always wanted to be just like those moms, drop the extra weight and keep it off.

This morning, after I woke up, I did something I wouldn’t normally do. Step on the scale.

Just pulling it from under my sink, I worried on how big the number was going to be, even with me doing yoga for about a week. What if the number is too high? What if the yoga isn’t working or I’m not putting in enough effort? What if I am eating too much?

Those questions kept circling my mind as I finally stepped onto the scale. My face flushed as I looked down at the haunting number. 234.8. A lot of you might not think that its a lot, but for me, I have been in the 200’s since high school. It puts a damper on your mind. Or for me, I tell myself that it’s not good enough.

You see, we are told at a young age that we can’t be ‘big’ or ‘fat’. Even in school, they make us take a test on how ‘healthy’ we are, or to see how ‘overweight’ we are. To me, it made me feel that I had to be skinny to fit in, have friend, do sports, or even join teams.

Maybe its just me, that has problems trying to lose weight. Maybe I’m the only one having issues with it. It gets harder to want to do anything when technology keeps getting better and is making us become more lazy or not have motivation to do anything.

The real issue is that no of us should be afraid of stepping on a scale, but stepping on a scale will give you, not just a number, but where you would fit on the scale of what is socially normal to be, in this world today.

Next time you see an overweight person, don’t judge them because they are fat or look overweight, don’t judge them. You should only judge them as a person by their personality, not their looks.

WWE Raw Superstar Of The Week – Sasha Banks

Image result for sasha banks

Sasha Banks is one of the women that is apart of the Women’s Revolution and she has played many roles in her time of being switched to the main roster. From title shots and being in matches that women weren’t normally in, she was a fan favorite.

Image result for sasha banks and bayley raw

At the moment, she really isn’t in a major story line, expect being in fights with her BFF Bayley. With Hell in a Cell coming up, hopefully she will have a match because we haven’t seen her much on pay-per-view. Maybe with the fights that Bayley and Sasha get into, it might be a match between the two.

Image result for sasha banks and charlotte flair

Sasha was brought onto the WWE roster at the same time as Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch, to start the Women’s Revolution. She started in a group called Team B.A.D (which stand for Beautiful and Dangerous).

Once the whole ‘Team B.A.D.’ was done and gone, Banks started getting into a feud, that lasted quite a bit, between Charlotte Flair. Between her and Flair, they had the Raw Women’s Champion passing back between the two. I personally thought it wasn’t the best move, I wish they would’ve had Sasha defend her title for a little bit longer and not against Charlotte all the time.

I think during that time, I really got bored of the Charlotte vs. Banks matches. They were the same thing, or boring, as some people took it. I will give them credit on the Hell in a Cell match, but almost the entire year, if not half of it, these two were fighting constantly for the title.

Sasha is actually married, her and her husband(Sarath Ton), got married in 2016.  She is also first cousins with Snoop Dogg and he helped her with her wrestling character. He even came out at her first Wrestlemaina title match between Becky Lynch and Charlotte.

Titles she has won:

  • WWE Raw Women’s Championship – 4 times

Crafty Sassy: How To Make A Towel Topper (For Beginners)

20180828_080830.jpg

Today, I’m going to try to teach you guys how to make these simple towel toppers. My great-grandmother has been making these for years and we always had a few of these hanging around the house. To this day, she still makes them, but not as much as she used to.

I am basing this pattern off of what I have seen on YouTube, other free patterns that they have on the internet, and going by one of her towels. I have NOT perfected this pattern. My great-grandmother never really wrote down her pattern or anything like that, she is one of those ‘make it as you go’ type of crocheters.

I will make a better blog post on the towel topper, but for now, I’m gonna show you how I managed to make my first one.

So, first thing first, lets list off the supplies you will need for this project:

  • Kitchen Towel
    • Any type of towel you can use, but use one with more of a thickness, it makes it easier to work with, in my opinion.
  • Medium or Size 4 Yarn
    • Chose a color that would match with your towel design, if it has any. Try not to chose black, it is harder to work with, same with darker colors.
  • Button
    • I chose to get a pack of white big (not giant) buttons. White matches with mostly anything, and for this being my first towel, I figured it would be easier to work with. You can chose whatever color buttons that you think would fit for your towel, as long as they aren’t the small buttons.
  • Sewing Needle
    • Normal sewing needle, nothing really special. It can help with poking holes through the towel.
  • Crochet hooks: 2.25mm and a 4.5mm
    • These are the hooks I used, I might change the sizes, but the reason why you need two is the smaller one will be for bring the yarn through the towel itself, while the other one will be for the actual crochet part of the towel.

Now that you know what you need, let’s begin!

Step 1: Take the towel, you have chosen to use and fold it in half, hamburger fold, if that makes it easier to visualize. Cut the towel in half.

The reason for this is that if you have a long kitchen towel with the same design, on each side, you’ll be able to make two different towels.

Step 2: This next step is going to be a little tricky. You can use the sewing needle to help poke holes in the top of the towel, I found that easier than taking the small crochet hook (2.25mm) and poking it through.

Once you poke your crochet hook through and pull through you yarn. Then, you are going to yarn over and pull through both loops, basically doing a slip stitch.

You repeat this step until you reach the other side of the towel.

*Remember to try not make your holes too close or too far apart. A few of the videos that I watched recommend being a quarter of an inch away from the top of the towel and from your last stitch, or hole you made. It doesn’t have to be exact, but whatever works for you.*

Step 3: Turn your work over. Now, we are going to switch our crochet hook, switch to the 4.5mm. Chain 1.

We are going to double crochet in between each of the stitches of the towel. You are going to keep doing that until you reach the other side of the towel.

*How to double crochet*

For this project, you are going to yarn over, go through or in between the stitches and then yarn over again, go through the first two loops, yarn over and go through the last two loops.

Image result for double crochet stitch

Step 4: You are going to repeat Step 3, for this next row. Instead of going in between the stitches, you are going to go in between each double crochet that we made in the first row of double crochets.

Once you reach to the other side, turn your work over and chain 1.

Step 5: For this next row, we are going to still double crochet, but we are going to skip every other one. For your first double crochet, you are going to double crochet in the first spot, but skip the one next to it.

You keep going until you reach the other side. Make sure to turn your working and chain 1.

Step 6: Repeat Step 5, making sure to skip every other one. Once you reach to the other end of the towel, turn your work and chain 1.

Step 7: As you can see, the towel topper is now starting to become smaller, which is what we want it to do. Now, we are going to repeat Step 3, making sure we double crochet into each one. When you get to the other side, turn your work and chain 1.

Step 8: Repeat Step 3. Turn work over and chain 1.

You are going to repeat Step 3, and making sure you turn your work when done that row and chaining 1. For the next 5 rows.

Step 9: Once you are done double crocheting those last 5 rows, it is now time to finish off the project and make the opening for the button to go through.

Now, everyone does this differently, but I am going to do it differently from what my great-grandmother does.

After you turned your work and chained one, you are going to do 2 double crochets. Chain 2. Skip the next 2 stitches. Then do 3 double crochets.

Step 10: This is the last row we are going to crochet. So, make sure you turn your work and chain 1. We are basically going to double crochet, for the last row.

When you get to the open space, you are going to double crochet twice in that opening.

We you get to the end, bind off by cutting the yarn you were working on and pull your crochet out, don’t remove the crochet hook from the loop, pull it up, so that the yarn is bind off.

Step 11:  The last step is simple, all you have to do is sew the button into the middle of the project, just like shown in the picture above. Then it is complete!

Like I said in the beginning, I will have a better post, when I have mastered a pattern and will update you guys on it. These towels have been a gift for any event or celebration. I love having these because you can hook in on your stove handle, especially if you have one made for the theme for your kitchen.

If you are intersected in learning how to do this, I will be going LIVE on my Facebook page, tonight! Like my Facebook page, because I do post all my blog posts on their, as well as my twitter. Click the link below:

~Chapter 8~

I woke up to the sound of beeping.
Beep…Beep…Beep…Beep…
I opened my eyes and saw that I was in the hospital. I started to freak out, my heart started to race.
Beep.Beep.Beep.Beep.
A nurse came in and looked at the monitor. She looked at me and smiled.
“It’s alright, you need to calm down, ma’am.” She said as I started to calm down a little. “Now, if you can, remain calm. You came in late last night and your husband saw you on the floor, bleeding.”
My eyes watered. I couldn’t remember what happened. Last thing I remembered was Justin’s fist. I can’t remember what happened after that. “When can I leave?” I asked, I tried to sit up, but the nurse held me down, lightly.
“You need your rest and we aren’t sure when you will be able to leave. Only Dr. Lee can give you a better answer, but for now, I need you to relax and get some rest.” She tucked me in and then smiled. “If you need anything, the call button for a nurse is right here on the inside of your bed. Feel free to use it.”
She then left and as I was about to close my eyes, Michael came in and walked over to my bed and sat on the edge.
“How you feeling?” He said, grabbed my hand and held it in his. It felt nice and I gave him a small smile.
“I can’t remember what happened.”
“I saw the entire thing.” He then looked into my eyes. My eyes widen.
“You did. What happened?” I asked.
“I knew something was up and so I followed you home. You and him started to fight and then once he hit you, I called a couple of my boys and we went in to beat the shit outta him, but he had already left.” He turned away from him. “He left you there for dead, Elizabeth.”
I didn’t know what to say, other than I started to get upset and cry, again. I didn’t know what to think. “What did you do to Justin?”
“Well, one of my boys followed him to a couple houses down where you lived and we saw him kissing another woman.” He then turned to me and wiped the waterfall of tears that was pouring out of my eyes. “But don’t worry. I kicked his ass.” He smirked and I smiled a little more.
“Thank you.”
“No need to. It was my pleasure, but there’s something that I kinda did.” I looked at him and saw that he did what I know he’s been wanting to do for years. “I faked Tim’s death and yours.”
I looked confused because why would he risk faking our deaths if I’m currently in the hospital. “Won’t they find out?”
“Nope, they won’t find us because I changed Tim and yours name. Plus we are in the next state over.” He grinned.
“Is my brother safe?” Once I asked that, Tim walked right in and hugged me.
“Don’t you worry, hun. I am fine, but once you are ready to leave, we are going somewhere I’ve always wanted to go.” He smiled.
I left the hospital, after being there for one day, because we had to get a move on, before people figured out who we really were.
I smiled as we got off the plane. The sun was shining, the water was bright blue, and the breeze was perfect. Why didn’t Tim and I leave for the Bahamas sooner, I don’t know. Maybe because I thought that everything would be perfect with Justin, but I guess I was wrong.
I looked down at my hand and saw that Justin’s engagement ring was gone. I smiled. Deep down, I really did love him, but if I would’ve stayed with him, who knows what would happen. I could’ve died, for all I know.
“Mikey, sweetie! were are we staying at?” Tim asked as he dropped his bags in the back of the rental car.
“Don’t worry about it, enjoy yourselves. I’ll find you.” Michael then got into the rental car and drove off.
“I need a drink.” I said as Tim and I walked over to the bar that was right across where the boat dropped us off.
We sat down at the bar and ordered our drinks. “I’m glad we are here.” I said as the bartender handed us our drinks.
“Me too.” He said, taking a sip of his drink. “I’m just glad that you are safe. I can’t believe Justin did that to you. God, he makes me angry.”
“Can we please not talk about it? I just want to forget all about him tonight.” I took a sip and Tim smiled.
“Of course.” He then raised his glass and I raised mine. “Here’s to having a awesome night of getting drunk.” We tapped our glasses together and I said, “Cheers to that.”

~Chapter 7~

The few days, I stayed late at work, trying to pretend that everything was okay. But really, it wasn’t. My father came in as I was getting my stuff, I was just about to leave. Just seeing him, really scared me.
“So, how is everything?” He asked.
“Fine.” I said, putting on my jacket. Just looking at him just made me flash back to what he did last weekend. He’s hit us before, but never like that. It scared me very much.
“Well, Justin called and told me that you guys want to get married at the end of this month?”
“I guess.” I grabbed my bag and then headed for the door. “Listen, I’ve got to go. Justin will worry if I don’t get home on time.”
“Okay, well, I’ll see you tomorrow.” I then walked down to the parking lot and got into my car.
Once I was inside, I just started crying. I then checked my phone to see that I had missed Justin’s call. My phone went off again, as I just received a text message from Justin.
When can I expect u home?
I then clicked on his picture and called him.
“Where are you?” He didn’t sound too happy. “You’re late, why?”
I took and deep breath then spoke. “My dad wanted me to stay a little later. I’m sorry, I was going to text you, but I got caught up in paperwork.”
“Sure you did, now hurry home.” He hung up and I put my phone back in my pocket. I started my car and then saw that I was gonna run out of gas pretty soon. I pulled out of the parking garage and drove across the street to the gas station.
I parked at the second gas pump and turned off the car. When I went searching for my card, I couldn’t find it. Where was it? It had to be somewhere? I started to panic, until I find a note in my bag:
I got us a joint banking account, that card doesn’t work anymore. New cards will be in soon.
-Justin
Are you kidding me? I can’t believe that he did that and without my permission. I kept looking in my bag and thankfully, I had a twenty dollar bill.
I got out of the car and went inside to pay, but when I got out, Michael was pumping gas into my car.
I walked over, but he didn’t look at me, he just kept looking at the pump.
“Well, you look like crap.” He said, I stood next to him.
“I know, but I guess this is what my life is gonna be now.” I said. He turned to look at me.
“It doesn’t have to be. You have the power to change how you want your life to be.” He then turned back to the pump and placed it back where it was and closed up my gas tank. “So, how is your new soon-to-be ‘hubby’?”
“At home, which reminds me, I have to go.” I walked over to the drivers side and just as I was about to open the door, Michael shut it.
“Something is wrong with you. You’re not yourself.” I looked down. If I faced him, he would know that something was up.
“I’m fine, but I got to go. I’m already late.” I said as I tried to open the car door, but Michael was leaning on it. “Please, I have to go.”
I said as I looked up to him in his eyes and a tear fell from my cheek. He wiped my tear away and then moved out of the way. Before I got into my car, I looked back to him, as he was walking to his truck, that was next to my car.
“I know something is up and if he is hurting you, I’ll find out. Whether you tell me or not.”
“Where were you?!?” Justin yelled as I walked through the door and placed my bag on the couch. When I turned around, Justin slapped me. “You were cheating on me, weren’t you? You fucking slut!”
My eyes started to water, but I didn’t cry. I stood up and looked at him. “I wasn’t out cheating on you, I had to stop and get gas.” I then took a deep breath and then pulled out the little note he left me saying that he canceled my account. “First of all, if you wanted to have a joint banking account, you could’ve told me and the fact that you did it behind my back is even worst.”
“It doesn’t matter. You are going to be my wife and I figured why not do it now.”
“I can’t do this, Justin. I can’t.” I started to cry. “What happened to the man I fell in love with?”
“I’m right here.” He said as he came closer to me, making me walk backwards until my back hit the wall. “I haven’t changed. I’m still the same person.” He pulled me in to embrace me, I couldn’t escape. He then looked up at me and smiled.
“You’ve changed. You’re not the same man I fell in love with. Y-You’re a monster. I can never fall in love with a monster.” His face changed from smiling to becoming very pissed. He pushed me up against the wall, slapped me.
“Don’t you fucking say that again.” He said, then he threw me on the ground and punched me in the face. “You aren’t going to end this. I’m the only one who decides if this relationship is over and it isn’t.”
The only thing I remember was Justin’s fist and then it all went black.

As always, if you can’t wait for the next chapter to come out, you can always check it out on Wattpad. Just search katieasehl and you will not only find this book, but a few others that I have either finished or I’m currently working on.

Let’s Rant – Episode 3 (My Sims 2 Series In Progress)

Hey dearies! I’m so sorry that it has been awhile with the podcasts, but I have had a lot going on and a few projects in the works!

So, I figured in this podcast, I would talk about one of those projects, Sims 2 Series. I also talk about how I started to get interested into the Sims 2 Series. I also talk about the series that I made for the very first time and what happened to the videos.

I will try my best to keep up on podcasts, but it is very difficult to with what’s been going on in my life. Thank you for everyone who is being patient with me and who have been supporting me since I first started to do this!

WWE Smackdown Superstar Of The Week – R-Truth

Image result for r truth

Whats up! Yes, we are going to be talking about R-Truth! He is this Superstar of the Week! He has been in the company for quite some time, although, now, he is used as a joke, we are going to talk about some of the feuds and titles he has one being on the WWE roster.

R-Truth has been almost everywhere, when it comes to feuds, from the Miz to Kofi Kingston to becoming the Golden Truth. He has been moved around a lot. He has also had a lot of title chances, but I guess the WWE creative hasn’t seen him as championship material.

Image result for r truth with selfie stick

What he’s doing right now, isn’t much. He has had one match since being one the Smackdown Live roster. I’m not sure why the Golden Truth broke, but it was very funny when Truth was trying to be like Tyler Breeze and had a stick for a selfie stick.

Image result for r truth with selfie stick

A little bit about him, he is married and has one daughter, that could be why he has been off and on TV so much, as some wrestlers try and make their family life more important, which is totally understandable when you are always on the road constantly. He is 46 years old, too, which could be stopping the WWE creative team from getting him risky matches.

List of titles he has won:

  • WWF Hardcore Championship – 2 times
  • WWE United States Championship – 1 time
  • WWE Tag Team Championship with Kofi Kingston – 1 time

 

Next week we will head over to out Raw roster and talk about someone from their Women’s Division.

Crafty Sassy: How To Make A Heart-Shape Bookmark (For Beginners)

This project, that I’m about to show you, is a very simple to make and is great for beginners, just like myself! I’m going to break down each step with pictures, and explain the process a little easier for you! I will also have a YouTube video in the makes for those who prefer videos to learn from.

First things first, let’s talk about what items you will need:

  • Meduim (Size 4) Yarn
    • If you are a beginner, I suggest working with light colors than dark ones. Lighter colors you will be able to see a bit better than dark colors.
    • Also, you will need 2 different colors, one for the heart and one for the stem, but if you want to stick with the same color, that is fine as well.
  • Crochet Hook: 4.5 mm/U.S. 7
  • Sewing Needle

Next, I will let you know what type of stitches that are involved with this stitch, I find it useful to know what kind of stitches the project requires, so that I can practice or get to know the stitches before hand:

  • Chain stitch (ch)
  • Double Crochet (dc)
  • Treble Crochet (tr)
  • Slip Stitch (sl st)
  • Small or Large Picot (For the stem)

I also what to remind you that if the first time you make this, it doesn’t come out perfect, that’s okay! It takes a lot of time and practice to make your projects come our perfect.

*Remember: You can always push your work back, if you feel you don’t have enough room to work your stitches in.*

Step 1: Make a magic circle. (Down below I have a slide show on how to make a magic circle. However way you make a magic circle, is totally up to you! This was how I learned to make them.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Step 2: Now that we have our magic circle, we can begin! Chain 4 (ch).

Step 3: Next, you will need to crochet 2 tr (Treble Crochet) into the circle. If you don’t know what a treble crochet is, here is a picture that can help you out with that!

Step 4: Double crochet (dc) into the circle 3 times. Down below will be a picture on how to double crochet.

Image result for double crochet stitch

Step 5: Chain 1 (ch).

Step 6: 1 Treble Crochet (tr) into the circle. (You can look back up to the picture if you forget.)

Step 7: Chain 1 (ch).

Step 8: Double crochet (dc) into the circle 3 times. (You can look back up to the picture if you forget.)

Step 9: Treble crochet (tr) into the circle 3 times.

Step 10: Chain 3 (ch).

Step 11: Make a slip stitch (sl st) into the circle to secure your work.

That’s how you make the heart part of the circle. The next part is the stem or the actually bookmark itself. This might be difficult, so I’m going to try my best to explain it.

Step 12: Make a slip stitch (sl st) into the heart circle with a different color, or with the same color.

Step 13: Chain 42 (ch), or however long you would like it to be. You can make it longer or shorter, but I would stick to chaining 42, just so you can see how long or short you might want it to be.

Step 14: Count from your hook the 6th chain and make a slip stitch (sl st) into that 6th stitch.

Step 15: Then you are going to slip stitch (sl st) into each chain, until you reach the 6th chain.

Step 16: Now, we are going to make a small picot. Chain 3 (ch), insert your hook into the 3rd chain from your hook, the first chain that you made if it is a little easier for you. Then, yarn over and pull through all the loops.

Step 17: Repeat Step 15 and slip stitch (sl st) into each chain until you reach the 6th chain.

Step 18: We are going to now do a large picot. It’s basically the same thing as a small, but you just chain more. So, chain 5 (ch), insert your hook into the 5th chain from your hook. Then, yarn over and pull through all the loops.

Step 19: Repeat Step 15.

Step 20: Repeat Step 16.

Step 21: Repeat Step 15

Step 22: Repeat Step 17.

Step 23: Slip Stitch (sl st) all the way up til you reach the heart and slip stitch into the middle of the hole, in the heart and you are done!

~Chapter 6~

“Let me see that ring, sweetie!” My mom grabbed my hand. “That’s beautiful.” She then leaned in and hugged me. I pulled away and scanned the room, but I didn’t see my brother.
“Where’s Tim?” I asked, but she didn’t say anything.
Justin then leaned in and whispered. “He wasn’t invited.” I turned to him and frowned. He knew how much it would mean to me to have my brother here, but why wasn’t he invited?
“What? Are you serious?” My mother then handed Justin and I a wine glass as she raised her glass.
“I want to say how happy we are to see our little girl getting married! And with a guy that we have welcomed into our family with open arms. We love you both. Cheers!” Everyone tapped each others glasses, except me.
I downed the wine and then placed the glass on the bar. “Now, can I say something?” I asked, but didn’t wait for my mom to say yes. “Why the hell is Tim not here?”
My mother took a sip of wine, but my father then turned to everyone and said, “I think she’s had too much to drink. Let’s let the love birds go home and spend some time together.”
Everyone laughed, and I threw my glass against the wall. “No, I haven’t and the fact that you didn’t invite Tim, just because he’s gay, doesn’t give you the right to completely forget that he even exists.” Everyone’s eyes, widen, but my father was pissed. I turned and faced him. “If you can’t except the fact that Tim’s gay, then I don’t want to be apart of this family.”
I then turned and walked towards the door, my mother started to cry, but my father turned back to everyone and excused himself. He then grabbed my arm, once we got outside and dragged me into the garage.
“How dare you speak to everyone like that?” He then slapped my face. I then placed my hand over my cheek. “He isn’t apart of this family. He chose to go against the lords faith.”
“Seriously? He isn’t real, my god.” I said, my father was scaring me. He came closer to me and pushed me up against the garage door. “Don’t you dare say that about out lord and savior! You’ll go to hell, just like your faggot brother!”
He slapped me again. Harder than he did the first time. I started to shed a tear and he slapped me again. “Stop crying like a little bitch and get the hell out of my sight.”
I ran out that garage so fast that Justin had to stop me. “What’s wrong?” I pulled away and got into the car, as Justin got into the drivers seat. The ride home was completely silent.
Once we got home, I headed right to bed. Got into my pj’s and then laid in bed, holding an ice pack to my cheek. Justin came in, drunk, and laid beside me. “Babe, you’re so sexy and I’m horny as fuck.”
He rolled me on my back and started to kiss me, I pulled away. “Stop.” He didn’t stop, he kept moving his hand down into my pants. “Seriously, stop Justin. I’m not in the mood.”
“I’ll get you in the mood.” He kept trying to take off my sweat pants, but I kept holding them up. “Stop, Justin!”
He finally got my pants off and just kept forcing me to kiss him. I was about to yell, but he covered my mouth and looked at me. “Don’t you fucking scream, I’ll just tell them that I fucked you so hard that you were screaming because It felt so good.”
“Just shut up and lay there.” I didn’t want to, but he was so much more stronger than me. I couldn’t stop what he was doing. After he was done, I laid there and cried myself to sleep.
The next week was a living hell. Ever since we got engaged, Justin has been different. I don’t know why, but I don’t like it. I’m only allowed to go back and forth to and from work. I can’t go anywhere anymore.
It’s like he wants me to be with him 24/7. It has built up in so much stress that almost every night, I cried myself to sleep. Even if he doesn’t rape me. What happened to the guy I fell in love with?
I wiped my tears as the door opened. Justin came in with Burger King and sat down at the kitchen table and got everything out of the bag.
“Hungry?” He asked. I nodded. As I sat down at the table, he looked at me and saw my eyes. “Crying, again? What now?”
“I’m just stressed, that’s all.” I said, unwrapping my burger and taking a bite. “How was your day?”
“Okay, but I think that you aren’t stressed out.” He handed me a brown paper bag. “Open it.”
I opened it and my face flushed. It was a pregnancy test. I pulled it out of the bag and looked up at him. “I’m not pregnant, Justin.”
“Well, if you aren’t, I think we should start trying.” I then took another bite of my burger. “I had your mother make an appointment for tomorrow to see the doctors.”
“Why? I already had my physical for this year.”
“It’s to make sure you can have kids or not. Your mother said that when you were younger, the doctor said that it would be hard for you to have children. I want to make sure of that.”
“Justin, as much as you want to start trying, shouldn’t we get a bigger place? Plus, if we weren’t married, my father would complain that we have a bastard child.” I then got up and took care of the trash.
“You do have a point, so how about we start trying next month?” He then got up and wrapped his arms around my waist. “Let’s get married at the end of the month?”
“Why do you want to get married so fast?” I asked, he turned me around and smiled.
“So that I can be married to the love of my live and plus I want a lot of kids. Sooner we get married, the sooner we can start trying for a baby.”

~Chapter 5~

I was woken up by Justin, he was planting kisses down my arm. His hands started to travel down, but I stopped them. “No, let me sleep.” I said.
“It’s noon, babe. We are going shopping, remember?” He said as he got up and pulled the blanket off of me. I remember that before we went to bed, he had asked if I wanted to go with him to help pick out a gift for my mother’s birthday.
“I’ll get up in a few.”
“Come on, let’s go. We need to get that gift before tonight.” I was confused. Her birthday is next weekend. I sat up and checked my phone. When I went into my messages, my mom had sent me a text saying that they were throwing a party tonight because she and my father are going on a mini vacation the week of her birthday.
The only thing that pissed me off, is that Justin went through my phone, again. I have no problem with him going through my phone, but if he checks my messages, he should at least tell me if someone texted me.
I dropped my phone on the bed and went to go put some clothes on. “What’s wrong?” Justin asked. Seriously? I turned around after I had gotten dressed and faced him.
“I have no problem with you checked my phone, but if someone texts me, let me know.” I said as a grabbed my phone and walked through the kitchen. He grabbed my arm and turned me to face him.
“I’m sorry, but don’t get pissed off because I went through your phone. You to the same.”
“I did, but I trust you enough that I don’t need to check your phone, but when it comes to me, it’s a big deal. You know I don’t cheat.” I said. He was getting pissed. I could see it in his eyes. “But why do you always have to check my phone? Do you not trust me?”
He threw his hands through his black hair. Then looked at me. “Your mom told me about Michael. I heard he was back in town and I didn’t know if you were talking to him at all.”
“Are you kidding me? She told you everything and you’re worried that I’m gonna still talk to him?” I said crossing my arms. I’ve told him about Michael, I just never mention his name. “I want nothing to do with him after what he did to me.”
“She told me that he used to get you into lots of trouble and that your father caught you and him in a car, naked.” He paused, “I don’t want you around him. Last thing I don’t want to happen is him breaking us up.”
“Why do you say that?”
“Never mind, forget that I even said anything.” He turned and walked into the bedroom and came back into the kitchen with his jacket and car keys. I put my red leather jacket on and then he looked at me. “Look, I’m sorry. I have a lot going on with work and I’m taking it out on you, especially tonight.”
“What do you mean by that?” I asked, but he wouldn’t tell me as we walked down the stairs and out the apartment door. He opened the door for me and even when he got into the drivers seat, he was completely silent.
The entire ride there and back was silent. The only time we spoke was when we were getting a gift for my mother. Which we ended up getting her a scrapbook and a 50 dollar gift card to Krafty Krafts, which is a arts and crafts that its my favorite place to go.
Justin pulled into my parent’s drive way. We ended up going back home because he wanted me to change into something nice. He never asks me to do that, I feel that he’s up to something.
He gets out of the car and walks over to open my door. I smile, as he looks at me, he gives me a smile in return.
“Please talk to me. Why are you giving me the cold shoulder?” I said as he grabs my hand and walks me over to the two wooden swings that hung from the huge tree that was in front of my parents house. “Justin, what’s going on?” I asked, sitting down on one of the swings.
I looked up at him as he then got down on one knee and grabbed my hand. Oh my god, is he doing what I think he is doing? I felt my face getting goosebumps, as he was holding my hand.
“Elizabeth, I know I’ve been acting awkward all day, but it’s because I was so nervous to do this.” He then pulled out a tiny box and placed it in my hand. “Elizabeth, I love you so much and there isn’t anyone else I would rather spend my life with than you. I want to grown old together as we watch our children and grandchildren grown up. So what I’m asking is, will you marry me?”
My heart dropped. I was completely speechless and shocked. When he opened the box, there was a really pretty ring in there. My mouth dropped as I saw the ring. “Oh, Justin. It’s beautiful.”
He then took it out of the box and placed it on my hand. “I take it that was a yes?” I shook my head yes as he then kissed me. He then picked me up as I jumped into his arms, closing my eyes, but when I opened them, I saw Michael.
He was across the street from my parents house, standing in the road smoking. A tear fell from my cheeks as Justin put me down and kissed me, again.
“I love you so much.” Justin said, holding my hands tight. “Oh, babe, I didn’t mean to make you cry.”
“No, it’s okay, they are tears of joy. Plus the wind is also not helping.” I said.
“Right, let’s go inside.” As we walked to the door together. “By the way, this is our engagement party, it was my idea and your moms.”
I smiled, he went inside as I turned back to see if Michael was still there, but he wasn’t. My heart ached a little. I hated seeing that look on his face. Something tells me that this night was just the beginning.

WWE Raw Superstar Of The Week – Kevin Owens

Image result for kevin owens

Kevin Owens has always been the ‘bad guy’, or has always turned heel, kinda like the Miz. He got into the WWE roster before his best friend Sami Zayn, which got the pot stirring for a Wrestlemania match.

He has always been the pot stirrer, causing issues for everyone around him. He has accomplished a lot in his few years on the WWE roster, winning titles and a few matches under his belt, as well.

Image result for kevin owens and sami zayn

I don’t think that the Kevin Owens Show will turn good, anytime soon. He has even had a few matches with Shane McMahon, as well and also with Daniel Bryan.

Currently, Kevin Owens is in a feud with Braun Strowman and has a match this Sunday at Summerslam. Since, his partner in crime, Sami Zayn is recovering from an injury, I guess the WWE Creative Writers wanted to try and push for Kevin to become Universal Championship. I don’t care if Kevin takes the title or not, Brock Lenser NEEDS to go!

Image result for kevin owens and chris jericho

Kevin Owens is married and has a son and daughter. The name ‘Owens’, for his character name, is his son’s name and it fit very well with his ring name.

Image result for kevin owens family

Titles he has won:

  • WWE Universal Championship – 1 time
  • WWE Intercontinental Championship – 2 times
  • WWE United States Championship – 3 times.

 

Sorry for making this short and simple. Next Wednesday, we will take a look at another superstar from the Smackdown Live roster!

Crafty Sassy: Top 10 Crochet Projects You Can Profit From

Everyone loves hand-made crafts. Not a lot of people invest their time into them, but others, like myself, have more projects on your mind that you just don’t know where to start. Well, since I am a stay-at-home mom, I figure I would list some projects that could make you some extra cash on the side.

  1.  Towel Tops
    Image result for crochet towel toppers
    This is probably one of the most popular items you can make and they can sell pretty fast! You just buy a regular kitchen or hand towel and crochet the top so that you can hang it on your stove hanger.

    My great-grandmother always made these and they would be gone before you know it. They are very simple to make and there are a lot of videos on YouTube that can show you how to make these.

    Best part about making these is that you can use any towel, even for holidays! Which is pretty amazing! You always don’t have to do the same pattern either, there are many patterns out there that you can use. From one button to two, it’s completely up to you!

  2.  Towel Hangers
    Image result for crochet towel holder pattern
    I found this a few days ago and this would probably sell like hotcakes, just like the towel tops. The only difference between these and the towel  toppers is that you can hang whatever towel you would like.

    Instead of crocheting the towel itself, you crochet along a hair tie or an elastic band. These too, are pretty simple to make. Best part about these, is that you can make them any color you want them. Again, you can find a few great tutorials on this on YouTube.

  3.  Blankets
    Image result for crochet blanket
    These will always be on the list, but they do take up a good amount of your time, depending what kind of design you are going for. However, baby blankets might be the easiest thing to make, just because they are the smaller version of a big blanket.

    I know a lot of people will save the bigger blankets for family. Don’t get me wrong, they can make you some cash, you just have to be very detailed on how long it might take and you might have to use all of your spare time to finish it in time.

  4.  Hats
    Image result for crochet hats
    These will always be on the list. Hats are a quick and easy thing to make, especially kid hats. A lot of people would buy these with a gloves, scarf combo. Depending on how good the work is, you could make some serious cash(Not enough to pay rent, though. Unless you can supply the demands.)
  5.  Scarfs
    Image result for crochet scarf
    I loved getting scarfs, my great-grandmother would always make the fuzzy ones and get them to us, in our favorite color, for Christmas. I still  have a few from when I was little. Like I said with the hats, it would be a great combo to do together!
  6.  Place mats
    Image result for crochet placemats
    Not a lot of people have crocheted place mats, but they are something someone could sell. You could also be able to customize them for holidays, with different colors and patterns! A set of four would most-likely sell like hotcakes, too!
  7.  Coasters
    Image result for crochet coasters
    Coaster aren’t something you would see at a craft fair, but they are an amazing idea to make for one! A lot of people don’t have coaster, but they don’t want to spend too much money on them.

    These are very easy to make and they can be crocheted, but some of them can be made by hand!These would go great with place mats.

  8.  Gloves/Mittens/Arm Warmers
    Image result for crochet arm warmers
    Gloves might be a expect level project, but mittens would be a lot easier to make. Same with arm warmers, they might be easier to make as well. Arm warmers could also be part of the combo, you can either replace the gloves, or add it to the combo of hats, scarfs and gloves.
  9.  Pins
    Image result for crochet pin
    Yes, there is such a thing as crocheted pins! Although, you would have to work with smaller and finer yarn, they are very amazing to make. Especially, flower ones!
  10.  Mini Stuffed Animals/Characters
    Image result for crochet stuffed animals
    You probably seen these all over the internet or Facebook. They can be very challenging for a beginner. They have all kinds of different characters or objects that you can crochet into stuffy’s.

    Amazon has a wonderful Disney Princess Crocheting Kit, that I haven’t tried out yet. They have a booklet on how to make every princess, but they only give enough yarn to make two. I highly recommend getting it, just for the booklet!

 

Are there any projects that you see at craft fairs that I missed? Comment down below and comment of which one you see would be more in an high demand!

*Note*

  • These aren’t a quick way to earn millions of dollars. This would be something you would earn on the side for some quick cash. If you make them with great quality and passion, I’m sure you could make a living doing it.
  • I just wanted to make a note, so that everyone knows this isn’t something you can get rich quick and fast. A lot of people make these as a hobby of theirs and put a lot of effort into their projects.

~Chapter 4~

I woke up to a boy and a girl, jumping on the bed. They looked so much like me.
“Mommy, mommy! Wake up!” The little boy said as he tried pulling me out of bed. “Come on Mommy. Daddy says that we can open presents now.” The little girl said as I got out of bed and walked down the stairs, holding their little hands.
I walked into the living room to find a fully decorative tree, lights went all around the room. Then I saw him. He was grabbing a little box that was hidden underneath the tree. I sat done with the little ones, as they cuddled up close to me.
“Jacob. Lila. Can you give this to Mommy?” he said, handing the kids a tiny box. They gave it to me, but I still couldn’t see who it was.
As I opened the box, my eyes widen. No one knew what the meaning of this present, but two people. I knew what it was, so didn’t Michael. I picked up the necklace that had a shell, sand dollar, and a little bottle of sand.
My eyes started to water as he came closer to me. When I opened my eyes, it was Michael. I didn’t know what to think.
I woke up and looked around the room. I was still home. I sat up and checked the time then rubbed my eyes. Tanner was still sleeping and I slowly got out of bed and went into the living room. I looked towards the balcony and saw a figure.
I walked toward the glass doors to the balcony and then I saw him.
“What are you doing here, Michael?” I asked as I saw the faint grin that was coming off his face. His black hoodie was still over his head.
“What, no more Mikey?” He said.
“You need to go before Justin wakes up and sees you.”
“Or what? He’ll kick my ass? I doubt that. I’ve kicked his ass plenty of times.” He chuckled. I crossed my arms and gave him an disgusted look, but he came closer to me. “I’ve missed you, sweetheart and so haven’t you.”
“No, just leave, okay? I’m happy with Justin. I don’t need you to repeat the past.” I said as he took off his hood and I stared into his eyes. He brushed his hand up against my cheek. Chills went up my back, but it felt good.
“Okay, okay, I’ll just come back another time.” He pulled away and threw a hand through his hair. “I’ll be in town for awhile. I’ll come visit you when you’re in a better mood, but I can’t leave without this.”
He walked back towards me, brushed my hair behind my ear and then pulled me in for a kiss. That spark we had when we kissed, make me warm and happy inside, like his lips were a drug that I wanted to abuse, but I pulled away.
“Stop doing that!” I said. “I love Justin.”
He laughed, but then slowly came closer to my ear. “If you really loved him, you wouldn’t of let me kiss you.” Just like that, he was gone. Jumped down the fire escape and ran into the small woods that were right behind where I lived.
I then went back inside and locked the door to the balcony. I didn’t know what to do about him, but my one question is what is he doing here? Why did he come back? I laid in my bed, trying to answer some of my questions.
I laid on Justin’s chest, slowly drifted off to sleep.

~Chapter 3~

The weekend went by faster than I had expected. Justin and I just stayed home, since it was raining all weekend long. The one thing that hadn’t left my mind was about what happened Friday night.
That kiss was so familiar. I just sat at my desk, just thinking of who it could be, until my father knock on my office door and came in.
“Good morning.” He said as I gave him a faint smile. I nodded and then went back to work. “Your mother and I would like to talk to you. It’s about the Locke case.” I froze.
“Okay, did you want to talk about it here or in your office?” I asked as he shut the door and sat down and pulled a chair closer to me.
“Well, we can’t find his case file. It came in about a week or two ago, but I haven’t seen it.” I then grabbed my key and unlocked one of my desk drawers and grabbed the Locke file and handed it to him. “And you did have it?”
“Well, I thought that I would find him, since it was someone I went to high school with.” I lied, but I had a feeling that he knew that I was lying.
“Why did Tim give this to you?” He sat, dropping the file on my desk and started pacing back and forth. “Why don’t you kids ever listen to me? This was Tim’s case. I made sure of it.”
“Why didn’t you give the file to me?” I asked as I looked at my father to see look out the window. “You know exactly why.”
“He didn’t kill his parents and when that happened, he was with me the entire time.” I said, I was really pissed that my father was bringing this up. Michael and I were best friends when we were little. He was the bad boy in high school because he partied. He and I had gotten into a lot of trouble when we were younger. My parents hated him.
“Elizabeth, I don’t want to hear it! You stay away from him.” He then took the file from my desk and slammed the door as he left.
I held my head in my hands. Why the hell was he bringing this up? Something what going on with him, whether it was Tim or Michael case, he was upset. If he didn’t want to tell me, I will find out, one way or another.
“So why weren’t you at work?” I asked my brother as we were siting at my kitchen table. “You missed out on me and dad fighting.” Tim rolled his eyes.
“What’s new.” He then took another sip of red wine. “What was it about this time?”
Before I told him, I took a deep breathe and a sip of wine. “It was about the file.” Tim’s eyes got big. “He said that it was yours to do and that I need to stay away from him.”
“Well, that’s a reason why I wasn’t at work today, because they fired me.” Tim then finished his wine and poured another glass for himself. “Have you seem him?”
“Mikey? No.” I got up and walked into the bedroom to see if Justin was here, but thank god he wasn’t. The last thing I need is for him to get really jealous and overprotected over me. I sat back down and took another sip of wine. “You can’t let Justin know, but when we went drinking Friday night, Justin told me to meet him out by his car when he went to pay the tab…”
“Keep going, don’t just stop there.”
“I tripped and some guy helped me out and told me I was beautiful, then kissed me.” Tim’s eyes got big again. He mouthed the words ‘shut up’. “But the weird thing is that when he kissed me, it was like I had kissed him before. I can’t remember who it would be though.”
“This is the best gossip I’ve heard in weeks!” Tim took another sip and then looked at me smiling. “So, what are you going to do now? To be honest, I’ve never seen you blush like that since…” He paused and then his mouth got wide. “Oh. My. God. It’s him.”
My face got even redder as I thought about it and it was him. Why would he kiss me out of nowhere? I couldn’t believe that it was Michael. I was in complete denial. “No, it can’t be. He told me that he never had feeling for me.”
“Who knows, maybe he realized that he’s in love with you and then came back to confess his unconditional love to you.” Tim said. “Ah, young love!”
“I think you have had too much to drink.” I chuckled. Justin walked in with a pizza and bread sticks. He walked over to me and then kissed me on the forehead. “Hey babe.”
“I see that Tim is going to need a ride home?” Justin said as I giggled.
“Yes, can you call a cab for him?” I asked, he nodded yes and then walked into the bedroom to make the call.
“So, what are you going to do about Justin?” Tim whispered.
“Nothing, I’m in love with Justin. I see a future with Justin, not him.” When I spoke those words, I realized that I hadn’t thought about having a future with Justin, other than parting. He’s talked about kids and marriage a lot lately, but it never seemed to cross my mind if we did ever get married.
“You keep telling yourself that.” Tim said as Justin came out of the bedroom. “Cab here, stud?”
“Yes.” Justin said, grabbing two paper plates as Tim left. I then closed the wine bottle and placed it back to where all the other bottles of wine were. “How was work?”
“Fine. What about you?” I asked.
“It was good.”
We sat in silence while we ate. I couldn’t take the silence any longer, so I spoke. “So, um, do you see a future with me?”
“Of course I do. I also see us kissing our 3 children to bed.” He smiled and took care of our plates.
“Three kids? Why three?” I asked as we both walked into the bedroom and I laid down on my back as Justin took his shirt off.
“Yeah, two boys and one beautiful girl.” I smiled. I wish I could start seeing us have a future, maybe it takes more time?
“Well, I’ve got to go to bed. Work in the morning, remember?” I said getting under the sheets with Justin.
“We can go to bed in a little bit.” He started kissing up my arm all the way up to my neck. Then we started to make out, but I wasn’t in the mood. So we just ended up cuddling until we both fell asleep.

WWE Superstar Of The Month -Trish Stratus (HOF)

Trish Stratus was one of the most remember female wrestler back in the Attitude Era, next to Lita and many other female wrestlers. Her most remembered feud is with Lita, who is also her best friend in real life.

She did make an appearance at the first ever Women’s Royal Rumble, and she will most likely be at the Women’s first ever pay-per-view, Evolution. As a fan, I remember her and Lita’s feud very well and watching my favorite past wrestlers come back to the ring now, I get excited.

Trish had a lot of rolls in the WWE, she had a storyline with many people, such as: Vince McMahon, The Rock, Chris Jericho, etc. The Rock even saved her from being part of the ‘Vince McMahon’s Kiss My Ass Club’.

Although, there are many stuff, that she did, all of us would like to forget, such as Vince making her get on the ground and bark like a dog, stuff like that. She is also a Hall of Famer, as well as the youngest to ever be introduced.

She is married to Ron Fisco and they have two children together, a son and a daughter. Lita is actually the godmother to her son.

Titles she has won:

  • WWE Hardcore Champion – 1 time
  • WWE Women’s Champion – 7 times
  • WWE Hall Of Famer – 2013

~Chapter 2~

“When did you get this?” I asked. I carefully took a sip of coffee.
“A week ago. I hid it in my desk. I was going to tell you, but you seemed stressed out at the time.” My brother said. I just couldn’t believe that out of all files, he wouldn’t be the one to show up on my desk. “He’s wanted for murder, again.”
“Again? When did this happen?” I opened the file and saw that he was involved with the death of his parents. “But I thought that he was proven not guilty?”
“He was, but he disappeared after the trial. No one had hear from him in years, until now.” I got up from my desk and paced back and forth. “What’s wrong?”
I stopped and looked out the window, it was a beautiful fall morning. My brother walked over and looked at me as I kept staring at the window. “Nothing. I’m fine.”
Tim knew something was up, but left the subject alone as we went back to work. I looked over his file again. Rereading the same line, over and over again.
Wanted for the murder of  Alison Stonewall
The day went by pretty fast. Finished all the paper work for the day, but I didn’t get started on the file my brother gave me. I decided to lock it in my desk and pretend that it wasn’t there. Tim was texting on his phone, when our mother walked in.
“Elizabeth, may I have a word with you?” She looked over at my brother as he frowned. My father and her weren’t happy that Tim decided to come out to the closet.
“Whatever you have to say, just say it now. I’m getting ready to leave.” I said, making sure that I grabbed everything that I needed.
“I need you to stay late again. Your father and I need to talk to you.” I knew it.
“Well, what is it about? Justin is going to be here any minute now.” I said, ready to walk out the door, until my father stood in front of the door. “Hun, let her go. We can talk about it later.”
“We need to talk to her about that.” My mother wasn’t very happy. I had an idea of what they wanted to talk about because my brother then dropped his phone on his desk and then walked over to our father.
“Is it because I came out to you and told you that I’m gay? You think this is a illness? Something that I will just get over?” Tim paused and looked at our mother. “Just because you don’t believe in same-sex couples, doesn’t change who I am. Out of all people, I thought that you two would understand.”
Tim then grabbed my hand and we walked past them. “Wow.” I said once we reached the parking garage.
“I know, but I feel so much better.” We both hugged each other as Justin’s car pulled right next to Tim’s truck. “Looks like your stud muffin is here.”
Justin got out of the car, as he walked over to hug me, then kissed me on the lips. “Hey Tim, hows everything?” Justin asked as Tim smiled.
“Oh, peaches!” Tim then opened his car door and got right in. “You take care of my sister. Make sure she doesn’t drink too much.
“Don’t worry, I won’t go over board.” I said as he drove off.
Once we got into the car, Justin drove off to where we used to make-out all the time. I was confused, but as soon as he turned the car off, he grabbed two beers.
“So how was work?” He asked, but I didn’t answer him, until after I chugged my first beer. “That bad?”
“Well, let’s just say that I want to have a good time and just forget about it all, just for tonight.” I said, as he handed me my second beer.
“Don’t worry, babe.” He turned to me and grinned. “Forget about work, just relax.” He then started to kiss me. My hands started to wander up and down his body as were his hands were going up and down on my body.
I pulled away as he softly brushed his hand against my cheek. I then pulled him in for one last kiss. “Okay, you ready to go have some fun tonight?” I nodded yes as we then drove off to one of my favorite night clubs.
The club was packed as hell, but we found two seats by the bar. Justin got us our first round of shots. We both took 5 or 6 shots each and then headed onto the dance floor.
I grinded up and down on Justin, I could feel that he was starting to get hard, but then he stopped me from grinning and pulled me in for another kiss. Then we started kissing. Before we knew it, we were making out hard core, walking all the way down to the bathrooms.
I pulled away from his lips, while he started kissing my neck and his fingers traveled down my stomach. He tensed me by running his fingers slowly in between the beginning of my underwear line. Making it seem like his fingers were going to travel further.
A moan escaped from my mouth. Justin then kissed me and looked at me. “Ready to go home?” He asked. I nodded. “Meet me out by the car while I pay the tab.”
He kissed me one more time as I walked in front of him, swaying my hips back and fourth. He slapped my ass and whispered in my ear, “Stop being so naughty, or you’re gonna get it.” I giggled and then walked out of the club.
It’s very hard to walk straight when you see two of everything. I finally reached the car, but tripped right next to it. “Shit.” I mumbled.
“Hammered much?” A voice said, but chills ran up my spine. I recognized that voice, a voice I hadn’t heard in years. I got up and looked at him. “I-I-I’m fine.”
I couldn’t see his face, only his eyes. Bright blue eyes, that had gold in the middle. I remembered those eyes. It couldn’t of been him. He pushed my hair behind my ears.
“God, you are so beautiful.” He said as he leaned in and kissed me. I felt a spark, that same spark I hadn’t felt in a long time. He then pulled away, before I even opened my eyes, he was gone.
I touched my lips and tried to recall what had just happen, but Justin came back to the car and we went home. Even though I was drunk, I kept thinking about that kiss. I didn’t know if I should tell Justin.
Once we parked in the drive way, Justin ended up carrying me to our bedroom. He laid me down on the bed, taking off my shoes and his. “Who was that you were talking to?” He asked. I was so drunk and tired that I ended up passing out.
The next morning, I didn’t feel good. I ran to the bathroom, puked my brains out. I brushed my teeth and when I walked into the bedroom, Justin wasn’t in bed. I walked into the kitchen to see that he had made me coffee and breakfast. Still, I couldn’t find him.
I sat down and starting eating, when Justin walked into the kitchen, as he came from the front door. “Morning. How you feeling?” I gave him a dirty look.
“I feel like someone took a big ass hammer and is hitting me in the head, repeatedly.” I said, he smiled, but then he looked serious.
“So about last night.” He paused and sat down at the table next to me. “Who was that you were talking to?”
“I don’t know. I couldn’t really see his face.” I said.
“He?”
“I think, why?”
“Just curious.” He took a sip of his coffee. “I saw him get close to you. I didn’t know if it was a friend or not.”
“I don’t think I know him.” I lied. I know I’ve met him before, but I can’t remember where. I wasn’t paying attention to what I was saying, but it slipped out. “I think he kissed me, but I think I was just imaging it.”
“So, you knew him?” Justin questioned me again. Why was he being so worried? If I told him that I knew that guy, he would want to know who, but even I don’t know who.
“No, I don’t remember much after we had our hard core make-out session.”
“Okay, I was just making sure.” He paused and then touched my hand that was on the table. “I care about you too much and I don’t want to lose you. I love you, Elizabeth.”
“I love you, too.” I finished breakfast and then I decided that I wanted to get more sleep, so Justin and I cuddled the entire day. It was perfect, but my mind was still wondering who that mysterious guy was.

As always, if you can’t wait until the next chapter to come out, feel free to check it out on Wattpad, just search katieasehl, and you will find My Secret Love and few other books that I have been working on or currently finished.

My Writing: My Secret Love (Chapter 1)

my-secret-love-book-cover.png

Here is another one of my books! My Secret Love. I want to WARN everyone that there is mature content and this story might talk about abuse, rape, drugs. There is ALSO some very graphic sex scenes. I will let you all know at the beginning of each chapter!

When I woke up this morning, it didn’t feel like a normal day. It felt different. I looked over to see Justin still sleeping on the other side of the bed. I slowly got up, grabbed clothes and got into the shower.
I was glad today was Friday. With the work week I had, drinks are needed after I got out of work. I’ve been staying late almost every time for the past few months because of my little sister Sammy.
The water felt nice on my skin, I really didn’t want to get out, but it was already 7:43 a.m. I had to be at work for 8, but it looks like I’ll be a little late.
When I got out of the shower, Justin was already dressed and ready to go. I grabbed my clothes and dropped my towel. I had enough time to put my bra and underwear on before I felt his warm hands go down my arms.
“Let’s not go into work. Stay home with me, baby.” He slowly kissed my shoulder, going closer to my neck and lightly nibbled. “Please, baby? Take today off, I’m sure your parents will understand.”
I pulled away from him to put my jeans on and one of my favorite plaid button-up shirts. “I wish, but they don’t get it. I can’t have a life, but they can with Sammy.” I then grabbed my red leather jacket, that my Mimi gave me before she died. “I’ll try my best to get out early and then we can go to the bar, have a few drinks, and spend time together.” He kissed me and then smiled.
“We can do that. I really wish you had today off, but to make the day even better, how about I bring you to work?”He then grabbed his coat and his car keys. I grabbed my bag and then we left for work.
“You’re late, again.” I heard my mother’s voice as I was trying to eat my breakfast. She walked in and sat down in front of my desk. “Why were you late this time?”
I took a sip of my coffee and then looked at her. “Oh, I don’t know. Probably because my boyfriend wants to spend more time with me because for the last couple months, I have been working late.”
“I’m sorry, but you have more important things to do. Your father and I do like Justin, but you have duties here that you have to attend with.”
“I know.” I then took a bite out of my breakfast sandwich as she rolled her eyes, when she saw what I was wearing. “What’s the problem now?”
“You need to dress more formally if you’re going to be in the office all day. I raised you better than this, Elizabeth.” She then stood up as my older brother walked in. She looked at my brother and left our office.
“Well, what did you do to her now?” Tim asked as he closed the door. “Okay, now spill it.” He then sat down at his desk.
“She bitched at me for being late again. I told her that I would like to spend more time with my boyfriend, but that’s not important.” I ranted to him. “But, anyway, I see that she is still not talking to you.”
“Nope. Did I forget to mention that Dad stopped by my house last night?” Tim then put a file on his desk. “No way, why did he come over?” I asked.
“First of all, he was completely wasted, screaming and yelling in front of my house. I guess that’s what happen’s when I finally had the guts to tell them your gay.” He then got up and threw down a file.
My eyes widen when I saw the name of who the file was on. It was him. A name that I never thought I would see again. Michael James Locke.

As always, if you want to read the book, without waiting for the chapters, it is out on Wattpad, and search katieasehl.

Jade’s P.O.V. 
I never thought that I would be a mother. Even when I dreamed about it, I never thought I would be able to have any kids after the accident. I moved into Tanner’s place after the accident. He has helped me so much. We fell in love all over again and got married 3 years later.
And now, we are parents to twins. Just like in the dream.
But, come to find out…
My best friend is dead. He died 3 weeks after the twins were born. I do miss him. I’ll think about here and then, but he doesn’t spend too much time on my mind.
