Asia Tao and The Essence of the Dragon 2.9

Chapter 2
2.9 The Other Guy: Jessica

Asia and the rest of her classmates gathered on the track to run the dreaded daily mile. The track was stretched round the perimeter of the football field. Everyone was gathered in a corner of the track stretching and talking. Their teacher came to the track carrying a cooler filled with water. In the distance Asia spotted what looked like a person passed out on the football field. “What is that?” she asked as she squinted staring across the field. “Is that a person? She asked. “What are they doing?” asked Soo yun. “They don’t seem to be moving.” Asia replied. Asia began to run toward the figure. As she got closer she began to recognize whom it was. “Oh my goodness, Jessica.” She gasped. There was blood everywhere and her throat was ripped out like an animal had gotten hold of her. Asia began to scream as she stumbled backwards away from the gruesome sight. The teacher heard her and rushed over with the entire class following.

“Oh my goodness, class get back!” the teacher yelled. “Someone run to the office and call 911.” She said. Asia sat on the ground in front of the body in tears. “Come on Asia.” The teacher said as she helped her up. “Okay everyone get back inside.” She said. Asia was trembling in fear as they walked back into the locker room. She had never seen something so grizzly. Jessica’s throat had been ripped open and her body was covered in deep cuts that looked like they had been made by claws. There was so much blood; her clothes were drenched in it. Everyone seemed to be convinced an animal had done it by their hushed conversations back in the locker room. But Asia had a different theory. “Are you okay Asia?” Soo Yun asked as she took a seat beside her. Asia turned to face Soo Yun with terror in her eyes. “Soo Yun I think Giovanni did this.” Asia said. “What how?” Soo Yun asked confused. “She looked as if she was attacked by an animal of some sort.” She added. “I don’t know how he did it but I just know he did.” Asia refuted. “Don’t you think this is one hell of a coincidence, Jessica cheats on Giovanni with Chris and now their both dead?” She asked. “Well yes but how could he possibly have done that?” Soo Yun questioned. “He would have to b a werewolf.” She joked. Or a dragon, Asia thought. “This isn’t a joke I have a date with this psycho tonight.” Asia whispered through clenched teeth. “Oh you have to cancel.” Soo Yun said. “What if that makes him angry, I happen to like my throat right where it is.” Asia replied.

It was next period and by now the whole school heard about Jessica. Asia and Soo Yun were talking outside their Spanish class waiting for the bell to ring. Asia paused mid sentence when she spotted Giovanni walking towards her with a huge grin on his face. “Hey I’m in this class now.” He said as he approached. “Wow two in a row this is the second class of mine you have appeared in today.” Asia said as she glanced over at Soo Yun uneasy. “Have you heard about Jessica?” She asked. “Yes.” He replied nonchalantly. “Asia looked confused, “Didn’t you use to date her?” she asked. “Yeah.” He said. “Well you don’t seem to broken up about it.” She stated. “We weren’t together anymore.” he said then he went into the classroom as the bell rang. “Can you believe him he’s not even pretending to be sad?” Asia whispered to Soo yun as they followed Giovanni into the classroom. “I know that was scary, his eyes were so empty like he didn’t have a soul.” Soo yun replied and Asia could tell that she was finally starting to believe her.

Connected To God

Jeremiah 29:13 say’s you will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. To me god is like WIFI if you want to connect you first have to find and chose a network. I want to ask you are you getting a signal where you are right now? Maybe your signal isn’t as strong at your sidepiece house or at the club. Maybe all that hating on other people, drinking, smoking, doing drugs, fighting, arguing and hanging with the wrong people is depleting your battery making it hard for you to stay connected to God. I’m speaking from experience distractions as minor as they may seem can destroy Gods plan for your life. No one plans on getting arrested, getting in a car wreck and or not living to see the next day but it happens. We often call these things a coincidence saying that we were in the wrong place at the wrong time. But I personally don’t believe in coincidences, I believe that things happen for a reason and I also believe that most of the time that reason is that we are disobedient. I’m not saying that you can’t go out and have fun but everything in order and moderation.

So many people are searching for their purpose in life or their calling when its already been revealed, you just can’t see it though because of all the clutter in your life. I have WIFI at home and it has the same name as someone else’s in my neighborhood but mines is password protected and sometimes when I turn on my computer it accidentally connects to their network and my computer won’t connect to the internet. Do you understand what I’m saying? I said sometimes I try to connect to network that isn’t meant for me and I can’t get the information I need. God is trying to give you some information but you are connected to the wrong things and the wrong people. Matthew 6:33 say’s but seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Are you searching for him? Are your locations on so he can find you?
The struggle does not have to destroy you. Your past does not have to define you. It’s not what people call you its what you answer to. Let that pressure turn you into a diamond. Tell Satan to loose you so you can get in a place where the signal is strong so that you can get connected to God. You may have to fight your way out of the situation or place you are in but you are not fighting alone. I remember when alcohol and marijuana had a hold on me. I remember needing to be loved so bad that I allowed myself to be abused and mistreated by men, I was in a marriage that I should have never have been in and everyday I lost more and more of myself but what the devil used to hurt me God used to mold me.    

Hebrews 11:6 says and without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. All your life people have been lying to you and you have been lying to yourself. God don’t make any junk. You don’t realize who you are you have lost your faith but the devil knows who you are and so does your haters. That’s why they hate you and that’s why they don’t support you because they know what you are capable of. The anointing is a stain you cant wipe off that’s why you aren’t fitting in because you are branded by God to be great but you keep trying to hang out with these mediocre people in these mediocre places and you wonder why you aren’t getting a signal. God is trying to move you. Can you hear him can you hear him now?

Codename: Bonnie and Clyde 2.8

Chapter 2
2.8 One of them: The In Crowd

Angelica forced a smile, “Thanks Candy.” Angelica was heart broken by what Candy had said and she could longer sit in the dressing room so she went back upfront to the bar. “Can I please get a shot of whiskey?” she asked Devon the bartender. “Get it yourself.” She answered with an attitude as she wiped down the bar. Angelica looked at Devon with contempt as she walked behind the bar and poured herself a drink. This is going to be a long day, she thought. A tall dark haired guy walked out of the office carrying a case of beer. “Hey I’m Hansuke people call me Han, you must be Chanel?” he asked. ”Yes that’s me.” Angelica answered as she shook his hand. “ I’m the other bartender the nice one.” He laughed. “At one unlock the doors and made she sure every girl is on the floor.” Devon ordered Angelica. “Okay.” Angelica replied as she gulped down her shot of whiskey and poured another. Angelica checked her phone for the time as was fifteen minutes before one.

“Chanel!” Akeno called out from a huge swinging door motioning for her to come here. “Yes.” Angelica answered as she went to see what he wanted. Angelica entered the huge swinging door that lead to a hallway. There were four rooms, three of which the doors where shut which she assumed where other offices and a kitchen at the end of the hallway. Angelica stepped into the room where Akeno sat with five huge men, two women and a younger smaller surrounding him. “These are the bouncers they collect money from our customers and you collect money from them.” Akeno explained. “These are the waitresses, this is the DJ and the Chef and the Kitchen staff are in the kitchen you can go and introduce yourself.” Akeno went on. Angelica nodded her head, “Okay, Hi everyone I’m Chanel your new manager.” “Everyone do as she says, okay scatter, we are opening in ten.” Akeno said.  Angelica went into the kitchen to introduce herself then she walked back into the dressing room to give the girls a warning. “Five minutes, girls!” she yelled then she walked back upfront to open the doors.

The DJ started to play some music as the girls walked out onto the floor. Angelica took a seat by the front door and watched as the girls all took their place sitting in different areas of the club. All the girls look so young, she thought. She wanted make Kimura pay for what he was doing to these poor girls but she didn’t have any proof except for what her own eyes would see tonight and she knew the girls would never testify against him. Angelica was lost in her own thought when the front doors open and Kimura and Daniel walked in. Angelica smiled as Daniel spotted her. “Carter go to the bar and let Han show you the ropes.” Kimura said. Daniel kissed Angelica on the forehead then proceeded to the bar. “Chanel are you enjoying your first day?” Kimura asked. “Yes sir.” She replied. “Good.” He said as he nodded his head and smiled. Kimura was just about to say something else when Akeno walked over and whispered in his ear, “Boss he’s here.” Angelica looked away and pretended not to hear what he had said. “Excuse me Chanel I have some business I must attend to.” Kimura said then the followed Akeno to the office.

Rockcity Rapland 2.8

Chapter 2
2.8 The One: Playing Nice

Angelo was sitting in the kitchen reading the newspaper when Alejandro came in singing. Angelo looked at him in awe, he had never seen his cousin this happy and after todays events his behavior was unexpected. Alejandro was dancing around the kitchen as he poured himself a drink. “What has gotten into you?” Angelo asked. Alejandro hadn’t even noticed Angelo sitting there. “I didn’t see you there.” He laughed. “I know you didn’t.” Angelo replied. “Why are you so happy?” he asked. “Camilla agreed to go on a date with me.” Alejandro answered. “Seriously?” Angelo asked looking confused. She was just furious at him not more than thirty minutes ago saying he hated him and she shot him earlier today now she was agreeing to go on a date, he thought. “Are you sure that’s safe after all that’s happened today?” Angelo asked. “You killed her best friend and she shot you.” Angelo stated. “I’m over that now.” Alejandro said beginning to become uneasy. “Is she over it?” Angelo asked. “You don’t really think she would shot me again, do you?” Alejandro asked. “I didn’t think she would have shot you the first time.” Angelo replied as he folded up his newspaper. “Just be careful.” He added then he went upstairs.

Alejandro began to wonder if going on a date with Camilla was wise. Then he began to wonder what were her real motives for wanting to learn the business. Maybe Camilla wasn’t that nice sweet girl at all the holiday parties he had fallen in love with anymore. He knew he wasn’t the same person he was before he became boss. But if Camilla had changed in any way it was Alejandro’s fault, he had destroyed her perfect life in the matter of a week. She was his creation he created the monster that was Camilla Aquila.

Angelo softly knocked on Camilla’s door as he pushed it open. She was sitting at her vanity with a robe on combing her wet hair. “So you and my cousin are going on a date?” He asked as he walked over to her. “Yes.” She answered not even making eye contact. Angelo slowly ran his fingers through her hair. “Why? What are you up to?” Angelo asked with a smile. “He apologized and I forgave him.” She replied still not looking at him. Angelo began to become angry at Camilla’s dryness. “ He killed your parents and your best friend you were just furious with him and crying hysterically in my arms calling him a monster!” he yelled. Camilla didn’t reply she just kept combing her hair. Angelo yanked her arm and her comb fell to the floor. “I don’t want you to go.” He pleaded. “He doesn’t deserve you.” Angelo said. Camilla just stared at him expressionless and snatched her arm away. She bent down to pick up her comb then continued to comb her hair. Angelo looked hurt he knew Camilla had finally been broken. She had changed. Angelo took a long look at her then he left her room slamming the door on his way out. As the door slammed behind Angelo Camilla let one single tear fall from her eye then she took a deep breath and wiped her face. She told herself that would be the last time she would ever cry.
