Note; Please do not request into the thread unless told otherwise. If you request into the thread before messaging me, I will deny you the spot all together. I'm tired of people not reading everything. You must be Eighteen years old to apply for this thread. This will be a dark & mature themed thread. So please make sure to read everything before applying. Thank you.

Jagger's whole life motto was to live your life like it was your last. So that's just what he would do. He would live life on the edge as people would call it. He would drive recklessly down the highway, he would take drugs like they were candy, he would sleep with every woman under the sun. There would be times his sister would try to stop him. He had been dating Your Name Here for the last three years, and he was planning on asking her to marry him over the summer. Your Name Here was seeing the route he was going, and wanted better for him. The two had spent the night together, and when Your Name Here brought up his lifestyle, was when Jagger had enough. He wasn't in the mood to live a sheltered life, he wanted to make the best of his life, and no one was going to stop him. Not his girlfriend, not his family, not his friend's, no one.

That same night Jagger and Your Name Here ended up having the worst fight possible. They both said some words that hurt each other, and Jagger stormed out of the house. It was raining, and Your Name Here tried to stop him, but couldn't. He had gotten into his car, sped off from her home, and headed straight for the freeway heading towards the mountains. The roads were really slick, and dangerous. He pushed the gas pedal down, and started taking the turns too sharp. On one of the curves his tires lifted off the ground, and his car rolled. He ended up rolling off of the side of the mountain, and the car rolled a good fifty feet or so, before it finally came to a stop. A passerby saw the whole thing happen, and pulled off the side and called 911. When the cops finally got there, and got the car pulled back up, Jagger wasn't breathing.

Over the next year Jagger was in the hospital, trying to fight for his life. Your Name Here, and his family wouldn't leave his side. One day when the male finally awoke, Your Name Here was by his side. When he looked towards her, he didn't know who she was. He couldn't remember his own name, or why he was in the hospital. It tore his family apart. It tore Your Name Here apart knowing that Jagger didn't remember her. Now Jagger's family had some hope that he would get his memories back. He didn't remember any of them, and he didn't want anything to do with them. When he was finally let out of the hospital, he ended up moving out of his parent's home, and got an apartment for himself. Meanwhile Your Name Here was trying everything in her power to help Jagger remember his old life.

As the weeks wore on, Jagger was getting more and more distant from his family, and Your Name Here. Your Name Here finally talked his sister into finding all of their home videos, and brought Jagger to his parents home, and showed him the video's, in hopes of helping him gain his memories back. What'll happen when Jagger starts watching the video's? Will he get his memories back? Or will Jagger be forever in the dark? Will Your Name Here get the love of her life back? Or will she end up losing him all together? You'll never know unless you join Forgotten Memories.

The cast of Forgotten Memories.

Jagger Landry; Taken

Female; Taken

What I need from you.

This is NOT going to be a first come, first serve thread whatsoever. I've been working on this idea for the past couple of days now and I've finally gotten it to where I want it, along with what characters I want to be written. When asking to join this thread please Private Message me before requesting. Please make sure to title your message Forgotten Memories. When applying I would like this skeleton filled out.

Picture Link: {Please do not fully link it}
Name: {First, & Last}
Nick Name{s}: {What do you prefer to be called}
Age: {Twenty-One & older}
Worst Fear: {10+ Sentences if it's not I'll ask you to add onto it}
Worst Memory: {10+ Sentences if it's not I'll ask you to add onto it}
Family History: {Dig a little into your character. 200+ Words if it's not I'll ask you to add onto it}
Biography: {200+ Words if it's not I'll ask you to add onto it}

I know it looks like a lot, but in reality it isn't. I'm searching for the perfect character for this thread. I will not be adding my own skeletons, because I would like you to get to know my character along the way. If you ask me to fill out the same skeleton I will, but as of right now mine will not be done. I will repeat this right here and now, this is NOT a first come, first serve thread. Do not request access until I give you the okay too. Now onto the rules below.

The rules of Forgotten Memories.

First- The pictures are going to be Real. None of that Emo/Scene bullshit either. If it's too big, I will ask you to resize it to a smaller size. If you can't find one to your liking, simply message me and ask me for help. I would be more than happy to help you look, or edit your picture for you. Just don't get mad at me, if I ask you to change/edit it.

Second- Romance might be apart of this story line, it's not going to happen right away either. It'll most likely be a slow burn like it is in real life. There will be a lot of dark & mature topics. There will be talk about rape, abuse, drinking, drugs and everything else under the sun. There will be trigging subjects as well. If you are still interested in this story then please apply. You have been warned twice about how dark this thread is going to be. You must be eighteen years old to even think about applying for this thread. I will not budge on this, period.

Third- Joining and then ditching is a no. If you don't like where this role play is going, simply message me and we can plot something out. Or if you are simply bored of it, and don't want to do it anymore, simply message me and tell me. I won't be mad if you get tired of it. Just if you join and then never post, is when I will be slightly annoyed with you. So please, at least talk to me about leaving the thread.

Forth- Plot twists is a must. I love plotting things out, and see where we want it to go. It's not that hard to become my friend either. So if you have something in mind, and wanna run it by me, all you gotta do is message me and be like 'Hey! I have an idea, and I just wanted to see what you thought about it!'. Because honestly I will do the same thing to you, so don't be surprised if you get messages from me about ideas.

Fifth- Stealing this idea is a no. It's something that's important to me. If I see anything like it, or someone stealing the main idea I will make it known you stole it from me. I have worked hard on this idea, and if you like it that much, ask me if you can borrow it. Just make sure to give me the credit for it. I will most likely say yes to letting you borrow it, as long as you ask me first.

Sixth- Posting. I know we all have lives outside of this site. I work full time, and sometimes on my day's off I'm not always on until later that night. So if you need a couple of days to post, I'm okay with that. If you are gonna be gone for a week or two, please let me know because if you don't, then I'll think you ditched out on me. I will do the same thing for you as well. If I can't post, or having a hard time I will make sure to let you know.

Seventh- A lot of my threads are Straight pairings. So this rule will be changing with each and every thread I will be doing. This thread of course will be Straight Couple's. So please make sure to keep that in mind. I will change and put what the thread's couple are at the time.

Eighth- Please for the love of God don't message me over and over asking when I'm gonna post. That's something I really hate, and it get's on my nerves when that happens. I like to take time on my posts, and I like to make sure it's the way I want it. If you see me online, I'm most likely working on my post, and making sure it's done right. If I take two weeks to post, that's when you can message me and ask what's going on. Other than that, do not bug me to post, and I will not bug you to post either.

Ninth- I love details inside of my role play's. Please make sure you give me something to work with, and I'll do the same for you. I am asking for a good 6-8 paragraphs per post. I understand writers block. I hate putting a posting limit on my threads, so please make sure I have something I can reply too.

Tenth- Doubling might be happening later on down the road. So please make sure you have a Male character in mind. Because I have a female in mind I'll be working on throughout this thread as well. So please make sure you step out of your comfort zone. Sometimes it's a good thing to do that. If you refuse to play a male character, I'll be choosing someone else, and not even letting you join this thread. I know this seems harsh, but it's only fair.

Eleventh- Now that I'm done sounding like a total bitch, I want this to be enjoyable for the both of us. That's what writing is about anyway. Having fun, and making something beautiful together. So please enjoy writing with me, and let's make something amazing, and see where this will lead.

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [center [b [i One Year Ago.]]]]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Jagger's mind was spinning as Oaklee stood in the doorway of her brother's room. [b "Are you really going to go over there right now?"] she asked. Jagger looked up at the woman and nodded lightly. [#D1B419 "I did tell her I would go over there. Plus I have an important question to ask her as well"] he said with a small smile. Oaklee shook her head lightly as she watched her brother. [b "You seriously need to clean up your act though as well. You and your recklessness is going to get you killed one of these days"]]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "Oak, you worry too much. I really don't mind going to see Ophelia. Plus I need to see her. You'd be the same way if you had a boyfriend"] he said lightly. Those words seemed to sting Oaklee as she stood there glaring at her brother. [b "Sometimes you can be a real piece of work"] she muttered lightly. Jagger was slightly taken back, he didn't know what he had said wrong. He shrugged lightly as Oaklee stormed out of his room. He sighed lightly as he gathered up his things, and grabbed his phone.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He scrolled to Ophelia's name, and he sent her a quick message. [#D1B419 [i I'll be there soon. I have to pick up a couple things, and I'll be there. See you soon beautiful. Xoxo.]] He then hit send, and grabbed his wallet and keys. He slipped his phone and wallet into the same pocket, as he walked out of the room. He stopped long enough in the hallway to grab the small ring box he had hidden in the hall closet. Oaklee stood there watching him. [b "Please be careful. There's a storm coming"] she said.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "You worry too much. I'll be safe"] he said as he kissed his sister's forehead, and he left. He went straight to his Jeep and opened it up. He climbed inside and sure enough, as soon as his door closed thunder rumbled. He started up the Jeep and pulled out of the driveway, and headed to Ophelia's place. He was getting more and more nervous, and he stepped on the gas pedal. He sped the whole where there, blowing through two red lights, and a stop sign. In about five minutes he was parked outside.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He shut the jeep off, climbed out and walked up the steps of Ophelia's home. He reached up and knocked on the door. He slid his other hand into his pocket, gripping the ring box he had with him. Tonight was going to be special. At least he hoped it would be. He's been planning on asking Ophelia to marry him for quite a while now. He looked up when lightening flashed across the sky, and thunder boomed over head. There was a storm rolling in, and he hoped it would hold out a bit longer. He stood there, waiting for Ophelia to open the door.]]

[center [b One Year Ago.]]

Ophelia went over to the window, making a face as she looked outside before closing them shut.  It looked like a storm was coming, and she was now worried for Jagger.  They had made the plan yesterday for him to come over, as Jupiter had gone out to visit a friend for a few days and they would have the house to themselves.  She had made sure to start dinner as soon as she got home.  Tonight was going to be special, she just had a feeling.  They had been together for a long time at this point, and Jagger had been making suggestions at how much he loved her recently.  She felt like she was getting too caught up, but it felt like something she never expected to happen to her would be happening soon.  

Pulling out the steaks from the oven, she waved away the smoke that followed them.  She heard her phone vibrate as she put them down to rest.   A smile rose to her lips as she saw the text from Jagger.  He literally made butterflies rise to her stomach from just a text. [#c9a4db [i Be safe, see you soon handsome. xx. ]] she wrote, smiling as she pressed send and put her phone down.  She leaned against the counter, blowing a piece of her hair from her eyes.  She looked outside the window in the kitchen, seeing the storm clouds finding their way nearby.  She hoped Jagger would listen to her, and actually be safe.  

Jagger had a tendency to be reckless, while Ophelia always took the safe route.  She could barely drive in the same car as him, as she would usually close her eyes and hold onto the door.  It was surprising to everyone, including herself, how different the couple were from each other.  She really did love him, as he had always accepted her, but she worried constantly about him. Would he come home after a night out without her?  Would he end up in the hospital?  She never knew him, and didn’t want to lose another person in her life.  Maybe she could bring it up tonight?  Tell him maybe he should just slow down, and focus on what was right in front of him.   They were growing up, and it was time he should act like it.

As she lit the candles on the table, she looked outside once more.  It was really getting dark, and she was worried about Jagger driving over here.  Maybe she should cancel, but he had just sent her a message he was on his way over.  She’d make sure he slept over that night, so he wouldn’t drive in this craziness.  As she assumed she’d have to wait on him, as he lived about 25 minutes away, she heard the doorbell ring.  He was early, which means his driving wasn’t as safe as she wished.  She went over to the door, about to reprimand him, but instead the smile grew on her lips.  [#c9a4db “Hey…”] she spoke, looking at the sky above him.  She took his hand, leading him inside and closing the door.

[#c9a4db “I-I made dinner.  Hope you like it.”] Ophelia spoke, pushing herself onto her toes to kiss his cheek..  She didn’t cook much, but Jupiter had been helping her learn some more fun recipes so she could impress Jagger mostly.  But she really went all out today.  Steak, potatoes, roasted vegetables, and she had even made lava cakes for dessert.  

[#c9a4db “Hope the drive over was okay.  It looks like it’s gonna storm pretty bad.  Sorry I had you come over, we could have saved it for another day.”] Ophelia spoke, taking her seat at the table.  As Jagger sat, she took his hand, lacing their fingers together.  [#c9a4db “But I really couldn’t imagine doing anything else but spending time with you.”] she asked, before taking her fork.

[#c9a4db “Oh, how was your friend’s party the other day?  Sorry again, I couldn’t make it, I was exhausted from work.  Nothing too crazy, right?”] Ophelia asked, popping a green bean into her mouth.  She rarely joined him at parties, knowing she would most likely worry about him pushing himself too far with whatever drugs and alcohol ended up at the party. Ophelia rarely drank outside of her own home, and even then it was two glasses of wine, maximum.  [#c9a4db “I’ll try to come to the next one, okay?”]
StolenRelics-ғorgoттen   215d ago

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 The moment the door opened, and his eyes landed on the woman in front of him, a small smirk passed over his lips as he let her pull him inside. As she shut the door, another clap of thunder seemed to shake the house. The storm was going to be huge. He felt her lips on his cheek, and shrugged lightly. The house smelled amazing, and he was starving. He didn't realize he was until just then. [#D1B419 "It smells amazing Phelia"] he said as he followed her into the kitchen. Seeing all the food made his mouth water.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "I'm surprised you cooked all this. I'm excited though to try it"] he said as he sat down and grabbed a plate, and loaded it up with a little bit of everything. He then dug right in, and cut into the steak first. He raised a 'brow slightly as he popped a piece into his mouth. It was cooked perfectly, and it tasted amazing. He looked up towards her and smirked lightly. She was going all out, and he was curious as to why. That's when she asked about the party, and he shrugged again.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He finished the bite in his mouth, and swallowed before speaking. [#D1B419 "It was alright. Wish you would have gone, because you know Miranda was pretty much throwing herself at me all night. She kept telling me she wanted me to leave you, and get with her. She even mentioned going to bed together, and not telling you about it. She's always had a thing for me, and is always trying to ruin any relationship I'm in. I didn't touch her though, so don't worry about that. She had finally gotten drunk enough to leave me alone"]]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "Marshall ended up taking her upstairs the rest of the time. Daniel and I did end up street racing as well, and I did end up winning five hundred bucks"] he said with a smirk. Which all of that went towards the ring he was thinking about getting for Ophelia. He just hoped she wouldn't be too made at him for that. He knew how she felt about his reckless driving, street racing, drugs, and drinking. A lot of people did ask why he was with her anyway. There had been times he had to stop and think.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She seemed to mellow him out a bit. She was always there to make him smile, and bring him out of his depression whenever it hit. She was always there no matter what. He reached over and took her hand in his. [#D1B419 "Thank you for dinner as well. It's amazing"] he said softly, and meant it too. Normally they would go out to eat, or his sister would cook for them. Thinking about his sister, he pulled his phone out, and sent her a quick message. He was just letting her know he was safe.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He then slid the phone back into his pocket, and went back to eating. When he was finished, he pushed the plate away from him. He licked his lips lightly, as he wiped his fingers on a napkin. [#D1B419 "How about we forget about the dishes for the time being, and go and cuddle in bed for a bit? I missed you, and I want you close"] he said as he pushed himself up, out of the chair. He then took her into his arms, and bent his head down, and kissed her deeply.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He pulled away slowly, his breathing heavy. [#D1B419 "I want your touch as well. Please?"] he said in a breathy voice. He leaned his head against hers, his eyes closing, as he snaked his arms around her waist, and pulled her hips towards his. He stood there with the woman, as the rain all of a sudden started down pouring outside.]]
SmileBrightмeмorιeѕ   210d ago

Ophelia listened to Jagger as he spoke about the party, and she stopped chewing for a moment when he mentioned Miranda.  Ugh, Miranda had always been all over Jagger, even after Ophelia and Jagger started dating three years ago.  She was always trying to steal him, even if Ophelia was right in front of her.  The redhead balled the bottom of her dress in her fist underneath the table, hating the fact that she didn’t go to this party.  Not that she didn’t trust Jagger, she didn’t trust the other people.  She had heard the whispers from his friends of why he was even with her, and wouldn’t be surprised if someone tried to sneak some time alone with him.  And who would tell Ophelia if it was just ‘one moment together’?

But something about Jagger always brought her back from her thoughts.  Even her own friends, and mostly Jupiter, asked her why they were together.  Jagger and Ophelia were completely different people and cut from very different cloth.  But that was why the woman loved him so much.  He made her spontaneous, and not afraid to take (some) risks.  He brought out the fun and excitement in her life, while she brought him back from his highest  highs and the lowest lows. He was very much her other half, even if he scared her half to death every time he left her sight. 

Ophelia was only able to break out of her vague anger about Miranda when he mentioned racing. He knew she hated when he raced, especially drag racing on the street.  The cars usually spun out and all she pictured was the car tipping over.  But, Jagger seemed to think he was immune to that kind of thing. [#c9a4db “Really? Well, I’m at least glad you’re safe.”] Ophelia spoke, a soft sigh escaping her lips after she spoke.  She tried not to get too upset, she hated fighting with Jagger and wanted their night to be calm, considering outside was the opposite.

Ophelia pushed the food around on her plate, the pit in her stomach not really pushing her to eat very much.  From hearing about Miranda and the racing, she just couldn’t get all the thoughts swirling around in her head.  Should she say something?  Should she just leave it be?  She couldn’t even think, and broke out of it when he began to speak again.  Just hearing his words, all of her worries left her brain and all she could think was him.  She smiled up to him, until he pulled her into his arms and kissed her.  She was instantly putty in his hands.  

Ophelia looked to him, a small smile playing on her lips.  [#c9a4db “Of course, my love.”] she spoke, feeling him pull her closer than she already was.  She even let a small squeak pass her lips when he pulled her hips against his, a small giggle escaping after.  She pressed another kiss to his lips as a flash of light lit up outside, pulling Ophelia from the kiss.  [#c9a4db “Oh man, it’s getting really bad out.”] she commented, before turning back to him.  She took his hand, leading him toward her bedroom, closing the door behind her before falling into bed with the male.

Ophelia was usually soft spoken, but was the complete opposite in the bedroom.  She was happy Jupiter wasn’t around, or he’d never let her live it down, the sounds that came from her bedroom. The two had discarded their clothes almost immediately, and had been in the throws of passion the second the door separated them from the outside world. The way he touched her, held her, did whatever he pleased; Ophelia was completely taken and completely satisfied.   The redhead fell back, her hair falling around her on the pillow, her breathing heavy.  As she took a moment to steady her breathing, she turned toward Jagger, before smiling.  She leaned into him, resting her head between his arm and his shoulder, placing a hand to his chest.  [#c9a4db “God, I’ve missed you.”] she smiled, pressing a soft kiss to his jawline.  

[#c9a4db “Let’s just do this all the time.  Forget all the parties and drugs and racing, and just be wrapped in each other's arms.”] Ophelia spoke softly, the words leaving her lips before she could even think about what she was saying.
StolenRelics-ғorgoттen   202d ago

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Jagger watched the woman's face, and soon he was being led to her bedroom. He knew that Jupiter didn't really like having him around, but he didn't care. Ophelia was his world, and he never thought anyone would have captured his heart the way she did. The first time he laid eyes on the woman, he knew she was out of his league, and things would have fallen apart right from the start. That wasn't the case now. They had been together for three years, and he couldn't be happier. He had talked to Jupiter earlier that week as well.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He was planning on asking the woman to marry him. He wanted nothing more than to have her in his bed every night. Waking up to her every morning, making breakfast together, seeing the world together. He knew how she felt about the racing, and the drugs, but that was apart of him. She would just have to learn to accept that. The moment that the door closed, his hands were on her hips, and she lifted her off her feet. He fell into bed with the woman, his lips touching every part of her skin.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 The sounds that passed through her lips, the way her body felt under his, it was pure bliss. When they were both finished, the red headed woman laid back next to him. He draped his arm around her waist, and laid there, trying to catch his breath. He would have loved to stay like this forever. He knew it wouldn't happen though. That's when she mentioned the drugs, and racing again. He sighed lightly and rolled his eyes. [#D1B419 "You do know, that's part of who I am. Nothing's really going to change"] he said softly.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He was hooked up with a really good drug supplier, and he was in the process of getting his own drug business off the ground as well. That was another thing he wanted to talk to her about. He turned his head towards her, his eyes locking on hers. [#D1B419 "I wasn't going to tell you, until I knew for sure I'd be able to do it. But Marcus is helping teach me how to build my own business with selling drugs. I have a couple of buyers lined up already"] he said softly.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He sat up and shifted a bit more towards her. He was getting excited now. [#D1B419 "If this works, Philia everything will be perfect! The money wouldn't be a worry. I would be able to support the both of us. Hell if you didn't want to work anymore, you wouldn't have too. I'd have my drug business, and working at the shop will be enough for the both of us to survive. That and I have a race this weekend as well, and the winner will make five grand. Baby, this is perfect!"]]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "I'll be making huge money, you wouldn't have to worry about anything anymore. I could get you out of here, and into that dream apartment of yours. What do you think?"] he asked. He took her hand in his, and watched her face for any signs of what she's thinking. His heart was hammering inside of his chest, as he waited to see what she thought about it. It might not be an ideal life, but it would be a good one at that. She would have everything she could ever dream of, and hopefully soon, he'd have the bride of his dreams as well.]]

Ophelia was a bit upset when Jagger disregarded what she said.  As much as she didn’t really think about what she was saying, it did bother her; he wouldn't even entertain the idea of stopping.  He was being reckless, and recklessness scared her.  The drugs, the racing, the parties; everything her biological mother did when Ophelia was in her care.  What if Jagger then became more interested in the drugs and racing than her, and pawned her off to someone else.  She had normally brushed off his recklessness, as he didn’t outwardly do it around her because he knew about her mother.  But soon, if they decided to move forward with their relationship, it would all be laid out in front of her.  She didn’t know if she was ready for that.

Ophelia looked to him as he began to speak.  Her eyes turned into a worrying look as he spoke.  His own business, with drugs?  Did he know how dangerous that was? He could have bad people looking for him just to get a fix, and he could be seriously harmed.  And with a supply of drugs around him, who's to say he wouldn’t take more than he already did.  And who were these clients he was speaking off.  Ophelia knew Miranda was someone who was always looking for a fix, and if she could get it from Jagger, she would.  She didn’t love the idea; actually she hated it.

[#c9a4db “Well, I don’t know if that’s a great-”] Ophelia started softly, before he began to get excited and begin his next speech. He wanted to support [i both] of them.  He made decent money at the shop, and she had her receptionist job, why couldn’t that support them?  Why did he want to bring in something dangerous like that into their lives? Besides, if he wanted to support both of them, that meant living together.  Opehlia was nervous about living in a drug house again.  She wasn’t five years old anymore, but it still didn’t make it easier.  And he was still going on about racing!  Did he really not understand how harmful he was being to himself?  

[#c9a4db “Are you sure…”] Ophelia spoke again, before she was overtaken by Jagger’s excitement about the matter. Talking about making so much money, and getting her into a dream apartment.  As much as that was exciting, this was too much.  All of it.  The drugs, the racing; [i that] being how they made money.  It felt dirty, and she didn’t want all that around her when working with little kids everyday. Her job was something she loved more than anything, why did he think she’d ever want that taken away from her?  

What did she think?  [#c9a4db “What do I think?  I-I can’t do all that Jagger!”] Ophelia spoke, sitting up herself.  She couldn’t hold back her words, the pit in her stomach forming as she thought of what her words could end up causing.  But she couldn’t let him do this. [#c9a4db “Are you crazy?  Living off of drugs and racing?  You could get killed!  You could get both of us killed!  This is not some fairytale world where you can just sell drugs and be off scott free.  What?  You just want a way for women like Miranda around your house, giving you favors for drugs?  You [i know] she’d give you [i anything] for a fix! And more racing?!  One day, it’s not gonna end well and you’ll be hurt!  Why can’t you understand that?!”]

Ophelia was shaking and she was so upset.  [#c9a4db “And what about me?  Why do you think I need you to take care of me?  I’ve worked my whole life to be able to take care of myself and you want me to rest everything on you!  You’re being stupid!  We are perfectly stable where we are, we don’t need Marcus to get you into more trouble than he’s already worth! “] Ophelia spoke, her eyes not leaving Jagger’s the whole time she spoke.  She knew he’d be angry with her, considering everything she said was a line of consciousness and no thought was put in at all.  Some of what she said was blown out of proportion but she didn’t care.  He needed to understand she was worried about him.

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 The males excitement was all of a sudden shattered by the woman's words. He narrowed his eyes towards her, and shook his head lightly. [#D1B419 "You don't understand at all.. This would be the [i perfect] thing for the both of us! You know damn well I wouldn't do anything with another woman.. I'm surprised you would even think like that"] he said with a ring of hurt in his voice. What did she think of him anyway? He knew that Miranda wanted to jump into bed with him, but he only had eyes for the red head before him.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 The more she spoke, the more he was getting pissed off. Maybe she wasn't the woman for him then. He had thought about asking her to marry him tonight, and now all of that was gone. He stood and found his clothes, and got dressed. His fingers brushed against the box in his pants pocket, and he pulled it out, and threw it onto the bed beside her. [#D1B419 "I was going to ask you to marry me, because I thought you trusted me. I see now that you don't"] he snapped, pulling his shirt on.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "I'm surprised you'd think I would sleep with other women, well you know what... Maybe I should have ended things a lot sooner with you. I had such high hopes for you and I.. I wanted to have a wonderful life with you, give you everything you ever wanted, and you wouldn't have to work again, you could follow your dreams. I was doing all of this for [i you]"] he snapped. The more he stayed here, the more pissed off he became. He wasn't in the mood to fight with her anymore.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "I was planning on asking you to marry as well. That's what the fucking box is. But I can tell you don't even want that. So here's to losing everything you could have had"] he snapped. He made sure he had everything and stormed out of the bedroom. He stopped long enough at the front door to slid his shoes onto his feet, and he yanked the front door open, and walked out into the down pour of rain. Lightening lit up the sky, and thunder boomed over him, but he didn't care. He was pissed, and he was hurt.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He fished his keys out of his pocket, unlocked the car, slid in behind the wheel and started it up. He grabbed his phone and opened it to Marcus' number. [#D1B419 [i Just had a huge fight with my girlfriend.. Or ex-girlfriend, not sure what we are right now. I'm heading over. I need a hit. See you soon.]] Was all the text message said, before he shut his phone off, and peeled out of the driveway. The tires sliding on the slick pavement. His heart was breaking into a thousand pieces as he sped off.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Maybe he shouldn't have said what he said to the woman, but he didn't care. He pressed down onto the gas pedal, and watched as the little spike moved up in speed. More lightening flashed, and another clap of thunder hit. He took the corners too fast, and at one point he felt the tires lift off the road a couple of times. He pressed down on the pedal even more. He felt tears sting his eyes, and the last thing he remembered seeing, was a pair of head lights coming towards him, and the sound of a car horn blaring, before everything went black...]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 It's been a year since that fateful night. The night that Jagger was almost killed. The male didn't really remember much of it. He remembered waking up in the hospital a couple of weeks later, and seeing his sister Valley. At first he hadn't know who she was. His head had been wrapped in a shit ton of bandages, and his mind was hazy. When he had awoken to see her sobbing beside his bed, he had asked who she had been. At first that had made her cry even harder, but then she took the time to explain the best she could.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Since then, the two had been working on rebuilding their relationship as siblings. He had left the hospital about two months later, and he was told that he couldn't do a lot of driving, and that he would have to stay at home. He was okay with that. He was just glad that he had a sister, that was willing to help take care of him. The male let out a small sigh, as he looked up from the photo's he was looking at. He had been in pretty bad shape.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He still had the scar from when they had to put the staples into his head. He didn't remember much of the accident, he just knew that he had a really bad head injury, and he had broken some ribs, and nearly severed his spine as well. He let out a small sigh when his phone buzzed. He reached for it, and saw Valley's name on the screen. He smiled lightly as he opened up the message from her. [#DB7093 [i Good morning Jagger. I had to leave early for work this morning, so I'm sorry.]]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#DB7093 [i I did make sure to leave you something for lunch. I'll be home around dinner time, and then you and I can sit down, and talk about some other things. I'm not sure if you've looked at the pictures of you and Ophelia yet, and I wish you would, but I know you aren't ready. But I'll see you later this evening. I love you. Xoxo.]] The male couldn't help but smile at his sister's message. He thought about replying, but didn't even know how too at the moment. That's when he realized she had spoken of a woman again.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He was kind of curious as to whom this woman was. He sighed as he finally thought of a reply. [#D1B419 [i It's alright. I've just been looking at the crash photos, and thinking how lucky I am that I'm alive. I don't know why I'm still here, but I'm glad I am. Maybe when you get home, we can talk about this woman? I don't know who you are talking about, and I'm not sure what photo's you are talking about. But I'll see you this evening. I love you Valley, so much.]]]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He read the message over a couple of times before he finally sent it. He sighed lightly as he leaned back against the headboard. Still to this day, he would get killer headaches, and right now was one of those moments. He sighed as he covered his eyes, took some deep breaths, and let the pain fade away for the time being. He stayed that way for the longest time not moving, and thinking about this mystery woman his sister mentioned.]]

Ophelia knew she had done something wrong the minute the words left her lips.  She could see the hurt in his eyes, and how upset he was with her.  He began to get dressed, and Ophelia tried to apologize. [#c9a4db “Jagger, please…”] she started, before the small box landed in her lap.  She picked it up, her hand flying over her mouth, as the tears filled her eyes.  [#c9a4db “Jagger, I do trust you!  I don’t trust those women that are around you.  I’ve always trusted you, with my whole being.”] she spoke, standing up as she watched him as he still spoke.  She began pulling on shorts and a t-shirt that was nearby. 

Jagger was never like this with her.  He kept snapping at her, and didn’t even want to try and talk it out.  But, then again, in the last three years they had never had an argument of this magnitude.  Screaming, yelling, not taking a moment to hear the other out.  Sure, they had small disagreements but never anything like this.  Tears were falling out of her eyes as he made his way to the door, as she followed him as he slipped his shoes on.  [#c9a4db “Jagger!  Please don’t leave!  It’s too dangerous out there!”] she yelled as she followed him to the door.  [#c9a4db “Let’s talk about this!”] she yelled as he closed the door to his jeep before he sped off, away from the house into the night.  She ran out in the rain, yelling out to his car, before the lightning crash scared her back inside the house. 

Ophelia started to shake softly, running to her phone as she called two people.  First, Jupiter.  She knew he was out on a date and probably wouldn’t pick up, so she just left a message. [#c9a4db “Jupiter, Jagger and I had a huge fight.  He went out into the rain, and I’m so worried about him.  I don’t even know what we are anymore.  He threw a ring at me and said he was going to marry me, but he’s gone and probably hates me.  Can you please let me know if you can get ahold of him maybe?  Call me back.”].  Ophelia’s finger’s shook as she called Valley too.  Even though the two weren’t close, she thought maybe she’d know something.  She didn’t hear from her either, and decided on a quick text.  [#c9a4db [i Sorry to bother you, but Jagger just left my house and he’d pissed.  We had a huge fight and I’m worried about him out there.  Let me know if you see him or hear from him.  Thanks.]].

The woman leaned against the wall and slid to her bottom, the tears still falling from her eyes.  She held the tiny box he threw at her, before opening it.  She stared down at the gorgeous ring he had picked out, and she adored it.  It was perfect, something she had always wanted.  If he had asked her, she would have said yes, but now she didn’t even know if he was her boyfriend anymore at this point.  Why was she so stupid?  She shouldn’t have let her emotions overtake her like they did.  Now they were arguing and he was out in the worst storm they had had in a while.  

Eventually, Ophelia fell asleep against the wall she was against last night.  She woke up to her phone ringing, and answered it begrudgingly.  [#c9a4db “Hello?”] she spoke, sleep evident in her voice.  As soon as they asked if she was Ophelia, she woke up, agreeing quickly.  Before she could even think, she was running out the door, driving the slippery roads to the hospital, praying Jagger was at least still alive. 

[center [b One Year Later.]]

Ophelia had been through the ringer throughout the last year.  The days he found out Jagger was in the ICU, she rushed there.  She sat by his side as much as she could, and when she couldn’t be in his room, she was in the waiting room.  She took time off work, she went after work, before work, whenever she could to be with him.  After weeks and months, when Ophelia left the room for coffee, Jagger woke up.  Jagger was awake, and didn’t know who Valley was.  Valley was sobbing and Ophelia couldn’t enter the room.  She was frozen at the door.  And that was the last time she had seen Jagger in person since.  

Valley and Ophelia had gotten a bit closer since this whole thing.  She even got pretty friendly with Jupiter, and they had started a relationship as well.  But Ophelia kept herself away, as she wanted Jagger to get better.  She knew they had a lot of baggage, baggage he didn’t remember, but she did.  She remembered every terrible word they said to each other, and that tiny black box that sat on her dresser reminded her everyday.  He didn’t need her coming back and hurting his recovery.

Ophelia had been becoming a shell of who she was before.  She went out less than she did before, and she would barely get behind the wheel of a car.  She would walk to and from work, and only drove when Jupiter needed her to pick him up, as the two shared a vehicle.  She couldn’t move on from what happened with Jagger, and waited by her phone to get updates from Valley when she could.  

Ophelia was zoning out as she held her coffee cup, thinking about that horrible night.  [#7dc75f “Earth to Phe?  Are you okay?”] Jupiter asked, placing a hand on her shoulder softly.  Ophelia jumped, the mug falling and coffee falling all over her pants.  [#c9a4db “Ugh!  Jupiter!  Don’t do that. Ugh, now I have to change.  Give me a minute.”] Ophelia spoke, heading back to her room.  

Jupiter sighed, cleaning her coffee up before he grabbed his phone.  He pulled up his and Valley’s messages, before sending her a quick message.  [i [#7dc75f Hello beautiful.  Hope you’re having a good morning.  It’s almost the weekend and I’m hoping to see you tomorrow if I can?  I miss seeing you.  Let me know what you think, and we can chat later on. xx ]].  He sent the message with a smile, before seeing Ophelia make her way over to him.  [#c9a4db “Stop flirting with your girlfriend and let’s get this day over with.  I only have a half day at work and then I’m going to that cafe on Main Street.”] Ophelia spoke, heading out the car with Jupiter.  

After Ophelia’s day ended at 11:45, she was able to walk to the cafe not far from her job, as Jupiter had the car.  She ordered a coffee and a muffin, before sitting down at a table.  She began flipping through pictures of her and Jagger, wondering if she could have done anything different.  The thoughts of this being all her fault refilling her brain.
StolenRelics-ғorgoттen   168d ago

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Jagger's mind was spinning. What was going on with him? He felt like he was missing something, and yet he didn't know what it was. He wondered if it had to do with the woman Valley had mentioned. He sighed lightly as he felt a headache coming on again. He shut the photo album, and stood. He walked over to the sink and grabbed a cup from the cupboard, and filled it with water. He took a sip of it, before finding his pill bottle. He popped the cap off, and shook out two pills.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Was this going to be his life now? Not remembering everything he needed to remember? Would Valley have to remind him everyday about what happened? Would he ever be the same again? Or would he get his memories back ever? Those were the thoughts that were always running rampant through his mind. That's what was running through his mind just then. He sighed as he popped the pills into his mouth, and tipped his head back, swallowing the pills with some water. He let out a small sigh, as he set the glass down and looked out the window.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 There were some small flashbacks of a woman with red hair. Something about that hair made his heart skip a beat, and a pair of beautiful eyes swam before his eyes. What was going on? He needed out get out of the house for a little bit. He needed to clear his head. He went to his room, changed into a pair of sweats, and a black tank top before he put his running shoes on. Might not be wise with the headache that was forming, but he didn't care. He felt smothered being inside the house.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He thought about taking his phone, but decided against it. He sent a message to Valley though. [#D1B419 [i I'm going out for a run, so if I don't answer my phone that's why. I started feeling smothered, and I didn't like the feeling. I'll call or text you as soon as I'm home.]] He read the message a couple times, before hitting send. He then grabbed his iPod, house keys, and Airpods, and put them into his ears. He slipped his keys into the pocket of his sweats, and made his way out of the house.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He stopped long enough outside to make sure the bottom lock was engaged, before pulling his iPod out, and turned on some Godsmack. He then slipped the device back into his pocket, and walked down the steps. He looked up and down the street, before choosing a direction to go, and started jogging, hoping the jog would help clear his head for the time being. That's one thing he hated was being cooped up, but at least he could still go running, and keep himself in shape. He let himself get lost in the music, and picked up the pace of his run.]]

[center [pic]]

[right [pic]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Ever since Jagger got out of the hospital and put into her care, had been hard. Valley had to drop everything to stay home to take care of him. She had to cut back on hours, and the bills suffered. At one point she was doing it all alone, that she felt like she was going insane. She knew that she wasn't though, because she had Jupiter, and Ophelia to fall back on. Thinking about the woman that nearly killed her brother, made the woman pause. She shouldn't be thinking like that, and yet she was. She couldn't hate the woman though.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She knew that sooner or later, Jagger would have gotten into a terrible accident, but she didn't think it would have been that bad. She had almost lost her brother, and she hated the other woman for it. They had gotten into a huge fight from what Ophelia told her, and that was about it. The storm that night had been horrible and she wished she had talked Jagger into staying home with her, but she had been distracted with Jupiter at the time. They had been talking off and on back then.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She let out a small sigh when two messages came through. One from Jagger letting her know that he loved her, and she couldn't help but smile. The next one was from Jupiter, and her heart skipped a beat. She looked to make sure no one was around, before she started typing away. [#DB7093 [i I can't wait to see you either. I have to work late today, because I'm pulling a double. But I will for sure see you tomorrow. I miss you so much..]] She paused her fingers hovering over the key pad.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She knew that Ophelia was wanting to see Jagger again, and she didn't know when that time would be. She took a breath and started typing again, [#DB7093 [i I know this might be a bit awkward, but do you think we should have Jagger and Ophelia see each other again? It's been over a year, and I feel like they should, but I'm not sure.. Do you think she'd be ready for that? Or should we wait a bit longer?]] She stopped again before hitting send. She was curious about his thoughts on it. Was she ready herself?]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She honestly didn't know if she was ready for Jagger to see the woman again. She looked up when a customer walked in, and she slipped her phone into her pocket. [#DB7093 "Welcome, what can I get for you?"] she asked. The male looked at her and smirked lightly. [b "You, in my bed, after you get off"] he said licking his lip. Those comments made Valley want to puke. She kept her fake smile on her face though trying to keep herself from throwing up in her mouth. She kept silent, as he looked her up and down.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#DB7093 "I'm sorry, but I'm spoken for. So if you are going to order something, I would do it now"] she said. The male's face fell and rolled his eyes. He placed his order and took a seat. Valley then slipped her phone back out of her pocket and opened the messages between herself and Jupiter. [#DB7093 [i Change of plans. Just bring pictures of your sister, and we can show him together. I don't think them being in the same room is a good idea right now.]] She then hit send again.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Most people would think that she was being a total bitch, keeping her brother away from the woman that he loved. But he didn't know who she was. She just wanted to make sure he was ready, before having other's around. She chewed her lip lightly, as she kept her cool for the rest of the day. She couldn't wait to get home, and just relax. For the time being, she had to pretend to be enjoying her day. When in reality she wasn't.]]
SmileBrightмeмorιeѕ   161d ago

Ophelia sat in her seat in the cafe, her coffee growing cold as it was basically forgotten as she couldn’t let her eyes leave her phone.  She had moved on from photos of the accident to photos of their relationship.  Candid photos of him while they were out to dinner, photos of the two of them cuddled up on the couch when they would watch movies, small videos of silly things that happened between the two.  She wished that this could still be her life, that he never left that day.  That she didn’t snap at him like she did; if they didn’t argue and just talked it out.  Her relationship with Jagger had been something she had never imagined for herself, but it was the happiest she had ever been.

Ophelia still treated her life like she was still committed to him.  She rejected anyone who had asked her out, she didn’t go out to bars or clubs, and she still wore the necklace he had gotten her a few years ago.  As far as she was concerned, Jagger was still her boyfriend.  She hadn’t spoken to him in  a year, and wondered if he moved on or even was interested in anyone else.  As much as she wanted to casually ask Valley, she knew that a ‘yes’ answer would break her heart in half, so she just lived in constant uncertainty.

A heavy sigh left Ophelia’s lips as she broke out of her cycle of staring at photos, before finishing off her muffin and trashing the rest of her freezing coffee.  There were a few shops nearby she thought about popping into before walking home, actually happy she didn’t have to be in a car.  It was hard to be behind a wheel at all, the image of the car flipping burned into her memory.  She placed some headphones in her ears as she exited the cafe, staring at her phone before she felt someone bump into her.  

Ophelia’s phone fell out of her hand, as she began to get nervous.  [#c9a4db “Oh my, I’m such a clutz sometimes.  I hope you are okay, did you drop anything?  I’m -”] Opehlia spoke, but froze when she looked up at whoever she bumped into, seeing Jagger’s eyes staring down at her. She swallowed hard, before finishing her statement.  [i “I’m sorry…”] she finished.  Sure, at this moment, she was apologizing for bumping into him, but it felt like she was apologizing for everything.  For her outburst, for not following him more closely, for letting him leave.

The red head knew the words that were bubbling to her lips were wrong, but she almost couldn’t help it.  [#c9a4db “Could I buy you a coffee?  To apologize, of course.  If you drink coffee, or a pastry?”] she spoke, not really able to look him in the eyes.  It hurt too much that he didn’t know who she was.  The look in his eyes was different from how she remembered, because he didn’t [i remember].  The love and compassion were replaced with confusion.  It was like when she first met him, which was something that hadn’t thought about in so long.  

As much as she wanted to tell him everything, Ophelia stayed quiet.  She was pushing it, offering to buy him coffee, but she couldn’t take it back now.  

This job sucked.  Jupiter couldn’t believe this was his life.  Sure, he looked successful and well off for just 28 years old, but he hated every moment of his job.  He was one of the managers of a decent sized bank company, and he couldn’t think of anything more boring to spend his life doing.  He never thought he’d ever work somewhere where he had an office, but here he was, pretending to smile and deliver the best customer service he could.  But here was here for two reasons, his mother, and Ophelia.  

Shortly after Ophelia turned 15 and Jupiter turned 17, his mother fell ill.  She had been working herself to keep a roof over her son and niece’s head, and had left her health to suffer as well.  Now with a diagnosis that left her bound to a wheelchair, Jupiter knew his dream school for college needed to go on the backburner, and going to school for math and accounting would bring in money for his mother and to support Ophelia while he was away.  And once Ophelia moved out once his mother moved into assisted living, he now had to pay for that program and took on a majority of the rent.  And once everything with Jagger happened, he felt the weight even harder.  

On any time he had off, he’d draw.  His muse?  Usually Valley at this point.  He couldn’t get her off his mind after they started dating, and it had really helped calm his stress in his life.  She was amazing, and such a strong woman as well.  He was so happy he found someone like her to be in his life.  He took out his phone and stared at the message. He wasn’t sure if Ophelia was ready for that, considering how on edge she had been about everything.  But he sighed in relief when she mentioned just bringing photos. [i [#7dc75f That’s a good idea.  I’ll bring them over tomorrow. Have a wonderful day today gorgeous.]]

It was his lunch break and Jupiter was not about to stay in the suffocating environment.  He mentioned to the tellers he’d be going out for lunch, and to send anyone who came to see him to another manager for about an hour.  He knew Valley’s work was a bit farther than he liked to go for lunch, but why not visit her.  He hadn’t been able to see her for a few days, so why not give her a little surprise.  He drove, entering and tried not to be seen at least for a few moments before he said hi and ordered.  He didn’t like the look one of the men at the table was looking at Valley, but no harm was done to her which kept him calm.  

Jupiter approached the counter, a smile resting on his lips as he made eye contact with her. [#7dc75f “Well well well, look who it is.”] he teased, placing his hand over hers on the counter. [#7dc75f "Thought I’d go out to lunch today, and this seemed like the perfect spot.  Can you spare some time to sit with me?  I understand if you can’t.”] Jupiter said, taking his suit jacket off and pushed the bangs of his hair back.  [#7dc75f “And I guess while I’m here I’ll order too.  And if you can sit, order whatever you like and I’ll cover it.”] he smiled, before placing his order and taking his number.  He gave Valley a quick wink before taking his seat.  As he waited for her, he began sketching on the back of a napkin, he just couldn’t help himself.
StolenRelics-ғorgoттen   136d ago

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 The male's heartbeat was getting a bit faster the longer he ran. Soon enough he slowed down his pace, and he started to cool off. Jogging was something he did often. At least ever since he had gotten home from the hospital. He had asked Valley if he had always jogged, and the sound of her laugh and shake of her head told him enough. She had told him he was more into racing, and he didn't remember that part at all. Was that what caused the accident in the first place? Had he been racing?]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Valley had told him that he wasn't racing. He had been driving too quickly though, and there had been a terrible storm that night. All of which he didn't remember all of. Little bits here and there, but that was it. He didn't realize he was wrapped up n his thoughts, until he felt someone run into him. He popped his head phone out and caught the sound of the woman's voice. He shook his head lightly, as he looked down at her. A small smile passed over his lips at the woman. She was breathtaking.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Her rambling was adorable, and the moment his eyes locked with her's, he felt like he knew those eyes somehow. He didn't know how, but he shook that feeling aside. [#D1B419 "I'm perfectly fine. I didn't drop anything. I'm not hurt, I promise you that"] he said as he tried to answer her questions. He brushed off the apology with a shrug of his shoulders. It wasn't everyday he was running into a beautiful woman, and he was going to make it known for sure. When she offered to get him coffee, he raised a 'brow slightly towards her.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "Well, that's a first. A breathtakingly beautiful woman, offering to buy me coffee, when it should be the other way around"] he said with a warm smile. He fished his phone out of his pocket, and shut the music off, and pulled his other headphone out. It was rude to have some sort of distraction, when someone was in front of him. He slipped his phone, and headphones back into his pocket and kept his hands shoved inside his pockets. The silence washing over them slightly awkward now. Was he going to tell her no for the coffee?]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He chewed on the inside of his cheek lightly before speaking again. [#D1B419 "I can go for some coffee. Lead the way to the best shop in town"] he said with another small smile. He couldn't take his eyes off of the woman. Something about her stirred something inside of him. He didn't know what it was, but those eyes.. Her eyes were beautiful, and he felt like he had seen those eyes somewhere before. He kept his mouth shut though, it would be awkward to mention something like that. He kept his mouth shut, as he finally tore his eyes away from her own.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Valley was a little annoyed with how her client had talked to her, but she brushed it off. When she heard Jupiter's voice, her heart skipped a beat. She looked up and sure enough he was in front of her, and a grip spread across her face. She felt his hand over hers, and she squeezed his fingers lightly. [#DB7093 "I'll come and join you. I'm about ready for a small break as it is"] she said lightly. She put in her order as well like he told her, and had Donna take over for her.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She went and clocked out in the back, and hung up her apron. She then made her way back out onto the floor, and went straight to Jupiter's side. She couldn't help it. She took his chin in hand, and tilted his head back and kissed him lightly. God she missed the taste of his lips. She pulled back and smiled lightly. [#DB7093 "I didn't think I would see you until tomorrow"] she said as she pulled out the chair across from him and sat down. It was a really nice surprise to say the least.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 When she sat down, Bentley came over to their table with a glass in hand, and placed it in front of Valley. [b "This is from the gentleman who had been talking to you before, and he wanted me to tell you that you can do so much better than the company you are with"] he said with a small, scared tone in his voice. Valley looked at the glass, and over towards the asshole that sent it. He raised his own glass towards her. She turned back to Bentley and lifted the glass up, and handed it back to him.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#DB7093 "No thank you. He needs to stop being a creep, before I get the cops involved"] she said. Bentley nodded and looked towards Jupiter [b "Please don't be mad at what I said.. I honestly love you and Valley together"] he said with a small smile, as he hurried off to the other guys table with the message, and glass in hand. Valley put her head into her hands, and started rubbing her temples. Guys like him, made her really question her choice of employment. She sighed lightly lifting her head and looking towards Jupiter once more.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#DB7093 "I'm sorry, I really am.."] she breathed out. A moment later Bentley was back with their food. He placed the chicken salad in front of Valley, and the other dish in front of Jupiter. [b "I hope you both enjoy"] he said and hurried off once more. Valley turned the plate a bit, and then lifted the small dish of ranch, and poured it over the salad in front of her. She then picked up her fork and started to eat. She was still annoyed, but having Jupiter with her, was enough to help calm her nerves, at least a little bit.]]

This was a terrible idea.

Walking down the road followed by Jagger was not what she should be doing.  She shouldn’t be pretending to be an innocent stranger when in reality, she knew everything about him.  She knew why he didn’t remember, and in her eyes, it was her fault.  Valley and Ophelia had talked about letting Jagger learn about her slowly, and not shock him into the reality that he had been in a relationship this whole time.  About what had happened just before the accident.  Their fight.

Instead, Ophelia was taking him out for coffee.  She was so stupid.  Jagger seemed pretty much the same as he was before.  Considering and kind to her feelings, and his compliment to her nearly caused her heart to skip a beat.  It was really nice being around him again.  She wanted to take hold of his hand and tell him everything, but she knew she couldn’t.  She also couldn’t just leave now, even if she wanted to.  She didn’t even know where she was headed to

The woman broke out of her own thoughts early enough to find one of her favorite coffee shops, and decided this would be where she’d take him.  The couple had been to his exact shop so many times Ophelia already knew his order, and Jagger knew hers…or at least he [i did].  Ophelia went up to the counter, careful to not reveal herself by mindlessly repeating his order she had said so many times.  She smiled toward the cashier, [#c9a4db “Hi, could I have an hot coffee, extra cream and caramel please.  And whatever you’d like as well.”] Ophelia turned toward Jagger, letting him place his order as well.  [i “Your drinks will be ready in just a few minutes.  Here is your number, we’ll bring them right over to you.”] The woman said, a soft smile on her lips.  Ophelia handed over the money to the woman before taking the number and leading Jagger over to a table.

Thinking, Ophelia knew she had to make it seem like they had never met.  [#c9a4db “I’m sorry, I think we’ve met before.  Jagger, right?”] Ophelia spoke, her head tilting slightly as she smiled toward him. Jagger Landry, brother to Valley Landry, who would have her head if she ever found out what was happening right now.  

Was Ophelia really that dense to mention knowing him?  She could have played dumb that she had never met him before, and now he had an easy way to ask how they knew eachother and everything would go downhill from there.  Or, she could cover before he could ask.  [#c9a4db “Jupiter!  My cousin is Jupiter, and he spends almost all his free time with Valley.  That must be how we met.”] she spoke, and she wasn’t lying.  She had met Jagger because of Jupiter, a party he dragged her to that night.  That was how she had met both Jagger and Valley, and how Jupiter met Valley.  

[#c9a4db “So…how’s your coffee?  Sorry, about bumping into you back there again! I’ve just had a lot on my mind recently…”] Opehlia spoke, before brushing some hair behind her ear, [#c9a4db “Sorry, I’m sure you don’t want to hear about all my problems. Please, tell me about you.  How are you?”] she held her hands up in defense, an awkward smile resting on his lips.  The cashier must have heard her awkwardness as they were given their coffee cups just then.  Ophelia wrapped her hands around the cup, tapping her fingers lightly against it.



Jupiter enjoyed his moments like this with Valley.  When they could just be together, and alone.  Not that he didn’t love the times he got to spend with both Ophelia and Valley, or when Jagger was at Valley’s place; but sometimes it was nice to just be with Valley.  He had wanted to take her away on a trip or something, just the two of them, for a while now.  He had even planned something out, but he knew they both had things in their homelife they needed to be care for.  Valley with Jagger, and Jupiter with Ophelia and his mom.

Jupiter turned to her and smiled as she sat down with him, sliding his half-finished drawing on her on a napkin to the side.  [#7dc75f “I decided to surprise you.  I felt like I was suffocating in that stupid office, and what better place to go than my favorite breath of fresh air.”] he smiled, taking her hand to press a small kiss against her knuckles.  He smiled at her, before his expression changed as the glass was placed on the table.  

Jupiter’s eyes narrowed and he looked over at the man who was looking back at Valley.  He was going to get up and deal with the man himself, but stopped when Valley calmly handed the drink back.  She was always so much more patient than he was.  He looked up toward Bentley with a blank expression, and nodded before the man rushed away.  But his whole expression changed when Valley spoke.  His eyes softened as he looked to her. [#7dc75f “Please don’t apologize for that asshole.  It’s not your fault he doesn’t know how to take a hint when someone isn’t interested.”] he spoke, scooting himself over closer to her, pressing a kiss to her temple. 

Their food was then brought over to the table, and Jupiter smiled at Bentley. [#7dc75f “Thanks.”].  Jupiter cut his sandwich in half, before taking a bit of his BLT.  He looked over at her, he knew she hated working here.  He also worried about her, the amount of times people were rude or made disgusting comments made him just as mad as she did.  [#7dc75f “Valley, would you want another job?  You know, we have an opening as a teller at the bank I work at, and I could get you an interview if you want?”] Jupiter asked, before taking another bite of his sandwich.  He knew Valley could handle herself, but he could see how miserable she was when stuff like this happened, and it happened a lot less in the bank.  

[#7dc75f “Obviously you don’t have to.  I think Ophelia mentioned another receptionist job at the school she’s at too, for the nurse I think.  She could get you the info for it, get you out of here.”] Jupiter spoke, looking around the café before his eyes rested back on her.  He took her hand in his, giving it a brief squeeze.  [#7dc75f “Once Jagger is more comfortable and you feel comfortable leaving him for a little bit, you and I are going on a trip.  Just us, my love.”] he smiled, before leaning in to press a quick kiss to her lips. All he wanted was to have Valley all to himself, which was a rare occurrence now with Jagger.  And Ophelia was constantly looking to Jupiter for assistance as well.  But he didn’t want Valley to feel like she was second to him, even if he had his family to look after.

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 As the two walked, the male felt something tugging at his heartstrings. There was something there between them, and he could feel it. He just didn't know what it was, or if he should even act upon it. He shook those thoughts out of his mind as he shoved his hands into his pockets. When the came upon a coffee shop, he pulled one of his hands out of his pocket long enough to open the door for the woman, and then stepped in behind her. He walked up to the counter with her, and let her order first.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He scanned the menu before deciding on a large mint coffee, with some vanilla in it. He rattled off his order, and nodded towards the cashier, who gave him a flirty smile. He didn't like the way the woman gave him that smile, but he wasn't going to say anything about it. He made a mental note, to not come here when the woman was working. He was then drawn out of his thoughts as the woman spoke his name. How the hell did she know his name? He never told her, and yet she knew it.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 That's when she rattled off knowing him because of his sister, and he shook his head lightly. [#D1B419 "I've never met you before. So I apologize.. It is kind of awkward knowing that you know my name, when I don't even know yours. I've never seen you hanging around with Valley, or Jupiter"] he said as he narrowed his eyes. That's when another waiter came over and placed their cups in front of them. He nodded his thanks to the other, before lifting the cup to his lips, and took a sip. The taste hitting his tongue.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 The woman seemed to be grasping at straws, and if he was being honest with himself, this was getting a bit awkward. When she asked for him to speak about himself, he shook his head lightly. [#D1B419 "I'm sorry, but I can't do this right now. You claim to know me because of my sister, and that you and I met, but I would have remembered you. So it's a bit awkward knowing that you seem to know me.. I'm sorry to cut this short, but I should leave. Thanks for the coffee, I'll pay you back"] he said lightly.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He reached for his wallet and pulled it out, and slid the woman the cash for his cup of coffee. He then stood and put his wallet back into his pocket. [#D1B419 "I'm not sure what you were wanting from this, but I really am sorry. Have a good day"] he said as he grabbed his coffee cup, made sure he had everything he needed and walked out of the coffee shop. If he had to admit to himself, he was kind of freaked out. Did he have a stalker on his hands?]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He made a mental note to talk to Valley and Jupiter about this. He knew Jupiter kind of well, so he would ask the other male about this woman he had been with. He took one last look over his shoulder into the building, and hoped that he hadn't hurt the woman too bad. He shrugged off those thoughts, as he made his way back towards his neighborhood. His head was spinning, and he felt slightly guilty leaving the woman behind, but what other choice did he have? He wasn't comfortable, and he wasn't about to stay in that position.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Valley was still a little creeped out with the asshole that had ordered her a drink. He clearly could see that she was with someone, and yet they still ordered it for her. Her eyes lifted to the male and a small smile spread over her face. A trip? Just the two of them? Now that would be perfect. Get away from work, and the little town for awhile. That's just what she needed. She was kind of nervous leaving Jagger alone though, and Jupiter had his cousin and mother to worry about as well, but she was excited.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#DB7093 "So let me guess, you planned the whole thing out? When are we going? What would I need to pack? Warmer clothes, or cooler clothes?"] she asked, pure excitement in her voice. It's been ages since the two of them had been alone. Ever since Jagger came home, it's been making sure he's okay, and that she was around if something did happen. It was tiresome, but someone had to do it, because neither of their parents were in their lives, not since the night their father laid his hands on Valley.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She shuddered lightly at the memory flashing through her mind. She shoved those feelings aside as she took a bite of her food. Then she realized he had mentioned about getting her an interview with the bank he worked at, and a small smirk passed over her lips. [#DB7093 "It wouldn't be weird having your girlfriend working with you? Or at least in the same building as you?"] she asked lightly. She knew she wouldn't be working under him directly, but working beside him would be wonderful. She'd be away from the prying eyes on the men in the café.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#DB7093 "I mean it's something I'm willing to do. When do you think you can set it up? I'm meeting with Ophelia later so I'm pretty sure I can get that information from her as well"] she said getting the excitement back in her voice. She then felt his lips on her own, and she nearly melted into a puddle on the floor. She kissed the male back, before he pulled away and went back to eating. It was rare they spent this much alone time together, and she missed it. She couldn't help but wonder when they'd be alone again.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She let the silence was over them as she ate. Her mind going over working in the same bank and Jupiter. Would she be able to handle that? Being behind a desk all day? It would be something different, and she had a feeling it would make Jupiter feel better as well, knowing that he could keep an eye on her better, instead of worrying when she was here. Her heart skipped a beat at the thought of something new. Was she ready to take that leap though? She looked down at the dish before her.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#DB7093 "Do you think I'd fit in though? Working in a bank, with all the prissy people?"] she asked as she lifted her eyes to meet his once more. It was a scary thought, but she was willing to take that leap. If it meant, they were one step closer to having that trip Jupiter planned out, she would do it.]]
SmileBrightмeмorιeѕ   72d ago

Ophelia knew this was a bad idea.  The moment every word left her mouth she knew this wouldn’t end how she wanted it to.  She wished she never let him leave that.  She wished she had just let him plan the drug business with his friend without fighting with him about it.  She wished…that none of this ever happened.  And now, here she was, pretending like she didn’t know everything about him and bombing her first interaction with him in over a year.  And just like that, Jagger was gone.  

The words the male said to her barely registered until after he left.  Ophelia knew she was trying too hard, but he seemed like a new person.  A person who didn’t know who he was, which in reality, was true.  She didn’t know how much of his memory he retained, but it was at least clear he didn’t know her, or any of their three years together.  All their memories, the good and the bad, were gone.  And she…was just a stranger to him again.  And a very odd stranger at that.

Ophelia laid her head down on the table as he left.  She couldn’t do anything right these days.  It felt like she was constantly underwater, and couldn’t reach the surface to breathe.  Jagger had always been the one to pull her out of these rough times, and now she had no one.  She wished she never bumped into him again, at least she wouldn’t have imprinted herself as a crazy person to him.  She was meeting up with Valley later today, and she knew she’d have to explain herself to her.  Ophelia needed her help.

Ophelia sat up, her elbows propped up on the table as she ran her hands through her hair.  A heavy sigh left her lips as she looked up, her heart jumped as she saw the waitress standing there with a plate in her hand.  [b “I know it’s not much, but I wanted you to have this.  I’m sorry for whatever happened. Have a nice day.”] the woman smiled, placing the plate down before rushing off back to the counter.  Ophelia looked down at the chocolate croissant that now sat in front of her.  She bit into the pastry, now she wasn’t just alone…she was also completely mortified.

Ophelia finished her second coffee of the day, and her free pastry before getting up.  She felt guilty that Jagger had left money to pay for his portion; she ended up putting his money in the tip jar for the workers instead of taking it.  She couldn’t handle keeping the money he gave her, and it was giving back to the woman who had been so nice to her.  She opened the door to the bakery, realizing she was much farther from home than she had been before.  She was so struck when she saw Jagger she walked to the nearest coffee shop she could see.  She sighed deeply, before pulling her bag higher on her shoulder and walking the 3 miles home.

Ophelia finally arrived home, dropping her back and immediately headed into her bedroom. She sat at her vanity, pulling out a small jewelry box from a bottom drawer.  She opened the box, something she rarely opened and only contained a couple of items.  A necklace her birth mother gave her, a charm bracelet she got from Jupiter’s mom and her aunt on her first birthday with them, and a small velvet box.  Opening the small box, the diamond ring glittered in the light.  The ring Jagger threw at her the day he left.  The one she should be wearing on her finger as Jagger and her planned their wedding.  She quickly wiped away her tears before grabbing her phone.

[#c9a4db ‘Hey Valley.  When are we meeting up today? I need to talk to you.  It’s kind of important.’]

Ophelia sent the text, taking one more look at the ring before it went back away into the jewelry box. Just seeing Jagger brought up all these feelings back up, and she didn’t know how long she’d be able to last.



Jupiter smiled when Valley seemed so excited about the trip.  Truth was, he had everything planned, except a date.  He didn’t want to make it too soon and not prep Ophelia and his mom for not being around, as well as letting Valley know so she could make arrangements for Jagger.  Now, all of these people [i could] take care of themselves, but Jupiter and Valley were very similar in the fact that they were basically the go-to person for the people in their lives at this moment in time.  [#7dc75f “It can be as soon or as late as you’d like the trip to be.  I wanted to give you time to make sure Jagger was alright.  No stress.  And I made you a packing list, I want it to be a secret and special as possible.”] Jupiter smiled, pressing a kiss to the back of her hand.

Jupiter was so excited to have a vacation where all he had to worry about was Valley.  Any trip he took he was worried about work, or his mom, or Ophelia; but this was going to be all about Valley.  They almost never had alone time since the accident, but Jupiter made sure to give Valley all the time she needed to help Jagger readjust.  It was helpful, because he was trying to get Ophelia back on her own feet and his mom into her assisted living facility. The two of them had so much on their plates every single day, this trip is exactly what they needed.  And Jupiter tried to make it as relaxing as possible; couples massages, candlelit dinners, and a huge room with a view. 

The male was able to come back from his thoughts when Valley asked about the job offer.  [#7dc75f “Weird?  I don’t think so.  I’d get to see you more often, and I wouldn’t be your direct supervisor or anything.  And if anyone is weird at the bank, they get kicked out.  You won’t have to deal with anyone else causing you any anxiety or being a creep.  And I’ll be there if anything happens.  It’s kind of a win win.”] Jupiter explained.  He took another bite of his sandwich, thinking about Valley working with him.  He really couldn’t think of a better situation for her, and she’d be able to make more money than she was at the restaurant anyway.  

[#7dc75f “I’ll tell the person hiring I have an applicant tomorrow.  I’ll bring the application tomorrow when I'm gonna come over anyway.  You’ll, of course, get the position because you’re amazing.  You should be in by the end of the week.”] Jupiter started, until he remembered he could send everything to Ophelia who could give it to Valley when she saw her later.  [#7dc75f “Oh, I just send it to Ophelia, and she can get it for you when you guys see each other later.”] he smiled, relishing in their kiss.  

A comfortable silence washed over them as they ate.  It was clear they were both starving, but also had a lot to think about.  The trip, the new job, figuring out how the change would impact their home lives.  If Jupiter wasn’t in the position with Ophelia and his mother, he would have asked Valley to move in with him at this point.  He really did love this woman, and even if he hadn’t asked her to move in yet, he was ready.  Maybe he could broach the question on their trip, or even when he saw her tomorrow.  But today, he just wanted to spend time with her while he could.  

When Valley brought up her question, Jupiter looked at her with a raised eyebrow.  [#7dc75f “Fit in?  Of course you will.  A lot of the people are really cool.  Sure, there are some prissy people, but you’d get along with the crowd our age there too.  There’s a girl there, Maddie, you’d get along pretty well.  She’s been there since I started and we’re pretty good friends.”] Jupiter finished, popping the last bit of his sandwich in his mouth.  

Jupiter looked down at his phone, before quickly finishing his mouthful of food.  [#7dc75f “Speaking of work, I have to get back from lunch.  But I’ll talk to you later, have a good time with Ophelia later.  If you need anything, please let me know.  I love you, babe.”] Jupiter smiled, pulling his jacket back on before leaning down to give Valley a kiss goodbye.  He took on hand to her cheek as he looked at her, [#7dc75f “If [i anything] happens with that guy, tell me and I’ll take care of it.  No one should talk to anyone like that at their place of work.  Okay?”] he smiled, kissing her one more time.  [#7dc75f “I love you.”]

Jupiter stood up straight, looking over at the guy who was causing Valley trouble, and he seemed to be finishing up.  [#7dc75f “He looks like he should be leaving. But I’ll have my phone if you need me.  See you later, love.”] Jupiter smiled at her, kissing her head softly before he headed out.  He made his way down the street, as he’d be late to work anyway.  He made sure to text Ophelia and his mom just checking in, before he headed to his desk and sat down.  He knew right then this job would be so much more bearable if Valley was here too, and he wouldn’t be worrying about all three of his priorities.
StolenRelics-ғorgoттen   27d ago

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Jagger's head was spinning. He felt like he was treading water. He didn't know what to do, or what to think. He felt like he couldn't get a grip on reality, and he knew he wouldn't be able too either. Everything was happening so quickly. Deep down he felt like he knew the woman, but how? Something about her stood out to him and he couldn't quite put his finger on it. He shoved his hands into his pockets as he looked down as he walked. He could hear the noises around, but he wasn't paying attention.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Had be been too harsh with the woman? She was acting like she knew him, but he didn't know her. Should he have known her? There was so many different thoughts running around in his mind, that he hadn't realized he was already in his neighborhood. He heard someone calling his name, and he snapped out of his thoughts, and looked up. There was an older woman in her front lawn waving to him. [b "Jagger dear, can you help me for a moment?"] she called out. The male nodded lightly pulling his hands from his pockets.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 He looked both ways before crossing the street. [#D1B419 "What can I do for you Mrs. Sharp?"] he asked as he came up her front lawn. [b "I need some help carrying those bags to the garbage. My grandson just left, and he didn't follow through with helping me finish"] she said, brushing her hair from her eyes. Jagger spotted the bags and nodded lightly. He walked over and picked both bags up, and carried them to the garbage can for the older woman, and tossed them inside. He then closed the lids and turned back to face her.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "I'm sorry he didn't follow through. Is there anything else I can help you with?"] he asked her. The woman shook her head as she held her hand out towards him. The male took her hand, and helped her to her feet. [b "No dear, that's all I needed. I'm going to be spending the rest of the day inside. Do you want to come in for some tea?"] she asked. Jagger could tell she was lonely, and he didn't know how much longer he could handle being around her. He was still confused about what happened.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "Sure Mrs. Sharp, I can come inside for a bit. Valley's still at work, not sure when she'll be home though"] he said. The older woman broke out into a smile, as she bent down to pick up her things, and then slipped her arm through his. [b "That's alright. You look like you need someone to talk too as well. Let's get inside, and get comfortable"] she said. Jagger laughed softly, as she reminded him so much of his own grandmother, and he couldn't tell the woman no. He had to admit, it was kind of nice.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 [#D1B419 "I mean, there's just a lot going on, and today was really odd and I wouldn't mind talking about it"] he said. The older woman beamed even more, and led the younger male inside. [b "Start talking while I make the tea, and I'll keep an eye out for your sister as well"] she said as the two went inside. Jagger stopped long enough to kick his shoes off before entering. He helped the older woman put her things away, before following her into the kitchen for that tea.]]

[center [pic]]

[right [pic]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 The more Jupiter spoke about the position, and the people there made her want to take that leap right then and there. When he mentioned bringing the application with him tomorrow, her heart skipped a beat. Was she really thinking about a different job? Hell it would be better pay anyway, and from the sounds of it she wouldn't need to pull doubles, and she would be protected as well. Not just with Jupiter around either. It was sounding more and more like her dream job. [#DB7093 "Just send it with Ophelia and I'll get it filled out tonight"] she said softly.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 Her eyes moved to the male that was giving her a hard time, and was glad to know he was leaving. She looked up at Jupiter and nodded lightly. [#DB7093 "I love you too. I'll see you tomorrow"] she said as she stood and watched the male leave. She couldn't wait for the so called trip he was planning as well. Getting away from everyday life would be wonderful. It would be nice not to worry about Jagger for awhile, and she could just focus on the relationship, and Jupiter alone.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 As she was walking to the back her phone buzzed, and she pulled it out. She read the message from Jupiter, and her heart melted. He was perfect in everyway. She then read Ophelia's message. Something was up, and she could feel it. [#DB7093 [i I'm off work in a couple of hours, we can either meet up at my place, or at the park. Whatever you want to do. Jupiter will have some things for you to bring with you as well. Is everything okay? Or is this something you need to talk about in person?]]]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She read the message a couple of times, before she finally sent it. Did something happen with Jagger? She then thought about messaging her brother as well. [#DB7093 [i Hey Jagger, just checking up on you to make sure you are doing okay. I love you. I'll be meeting up with a friend after work, so I won't be home till later. Don't know if I'll be at home, or meeting up somewhere. I'm about to clock back in, so I won't have my phone. Again I love you.]] She hit send, clocked back in and put her phone into her pocket.]]

[google-font][noto+sans [size12 She had so much to think about, and she couldn't wrap her head around everything. Jupiter had planned this amazing trip, and she wanted to be selfish. Hell, she was going to be selfish. She was going to run some dates with the male, and see how he'd feel about a month away. She needed the break, and she wanted to spend as much time with the male as possible. She made a mental note to speak to the male tomorrow when they had some alone time together. For now, she had to focus on work, and meeting up with Ophelia later.]]
SmileBrightмeмorιeѕ   16d ago

Ophelia had been laying on her bed, her eyes glued to the ceiling as every moment over the past year ran through her head.  Their fight.  The accident.  The phone call.  The endless months she sat in the hospital and just watched him.  She had been wishing and praying that he’d wake up, only for her to run when he did.  She couldn’t stand to face him after all that had happened.  Why did she do that?  She could have stayed, apologized, and they could have at least started back as friends.  

Now it had been a year since they had an actual conversation, and her last one destroyed any kind of contact they could have had.  She knew that Valley was going to be upset with her about what happened, but she also hoped she’d be able to understand where she was coming from.  All she wanted was a reason to speak to him, and the overwhelming love she still had for him pushed her to speak the way she did.  

The redhead heard her phone go off, before grabbing her phone and holding it up to look at the message.  She sighed, before opening up a new message to send.  [i [#c9a4db Could we meet up at your place?  I kind of fucked up, and I think we should talk about it in person.  You’d be the best person to help me figure out what to do.  And I’ll make sure I grab the things from Jupiter.]] Ophelia read through her message, before hitting send.  Looking at the time, she knew Jupiter left work earlier these days so he’d be home in about an hour.  Pushing herself up from her bed, knowing she should get ready for seeing Valley later.  

Ophelia hoped in the shower, cleaning herself from the day of work, even if it was a half day.  She rubbed her hands over her face, hopefully the shower would let her get over the feeling of despair from today.  She let the water run over her body, and almost could feel a pair of arms wrap around her.  Jagger and Ophelia used to shower together, and it was such an intimate experience for both of them.  She shook her head, before quickly finishing her shower before getting out of wrapping a towel around her.  

As Ophelia got dressed, she heard the door open of their place, hearing Jupiter putting his stuff down at the door.  Once she was dressed in some jeans and a t-shirt, she exited her room as she brushed out her hair. [#c9a4db “Hey.”] she spoke, waving quickly to Jupiter before going to the kitchen as he entered his bedroom.  She made herself some tea, waiting for Jupiter to come out of his bedroom.  She knew she was waiting for something from him to bring to Valley. She plopped herself down on the couch, before sending another message to Valley. [i [#c9a4db Oh, let me know when I should come over.  Jupiter just have to give me whatever I’m bringing and then I’ll make my way over.]]



Jupiter sighed as he plopped back down at his desk.  He really didn’t enjoy his job, but it gave him what he needed.  It gave him plenty of money to support himself, keep his mom in the care she needed, keep Ophelia afloat, as well as spoil his girlfriend.  The trip he had been planning wasn’t cheap, but it was something the two of them really needed.  He opened his computer back up, and continued work.  

Before he left for the day, he entered the office of their hiring manager.  [#7dc75f “Hey Jess. I have someone who is interested in the new teller job.  She’s hard working and needs a new job.”] Jupiter smiled as he leaned against the doorframe of her office.  [b “Is this for your girlfriend you can’t stop talking about?  You’ve promised me and my husband a double date and you’ve been slacking.”] Jess teased back, grabbing the application behind the desk.  The male shrugged and laughed, as he knew how busy Valley had been and he didn’t want to bother her with double dates when he barely had time to take her out.  [b “Bring it back to me as soon as you can, along with a resume.  I bet she’s great, but I need something to show me she could work here.”] Jess spoke, handing over the application.  

Jupiter looked it over, it seems simple enough.  Basic information, past job experience, special skills; all things Valley would be able to do easily.  [#7dc75f “Thank you Jess.”] he responded before packing up the application and headed home.  Jupiter needed a break tonight.  He knew that Valley was seeing Ophelia tonight, so he knew he could work on some art.  Actually, he was working on a piece for Valley.  He had taken a picture of the two of them, and had been working on a painting of the same photo to give to her.  He was hoping he could wait until they went on their trip to give it to her, and he could continue to work on it tonight.

She had told him if she wanted to talk, she’d ask him, so he kept quiet.  Even though Ophelia was only his cousin, she really felt like his sister.  He truly cared about her and he knew how rough this entire thing with Jagger had hit her. 

After he changed out of his work clothes, he made his way to the couch, handing the application over to Ophelia.  [#c9a4db “An application?”] she asked, looking up at him after looking over the papers now in her hand.  [#7dc75f “For Valley.  She’s gonna apply to work at the bank with me.  How was your day?”] he asked, sitting down on the other end of the couch.  The woman put down the papers on the coffee table, pulling her knees underneath her, looking down. [#7dc75f “What happened?  Are you okay?”].  Ophelia took a deep breath, before looking over to Jupiter, [#c9a4db “I, uh, talked to Jagger today…”].

[#7dc75f “Oh…wait, you did what!?”]
