Overturned – Chapter 9

Hey! Sorry I haven’t updated this story in a while. Hope you enjoy! And welcome to all my new followers and all the laughs we’ve received for our music videos, which you can check out by clicking here. On with the story!


“Come onnnnn, Lily!” Mia whined, sticking out her bottom lip as Lily dragged yet another bathing suit out of the closet that she had very neatly put them in. “I like this one!” and Mia once again yanked a bathing suit out of the closet that she had yanked out dozens of times before.

Which Lily once again yanked off of her and put back in the closet.

“That is too modest! You want something more…provocative,” and Lily then wiggled her eyebrows suggestively.

WHA-?!?

“And don’t try and deny that your face is blushing!”

Ohmygosh!!!!

“This…”

“Is amazing!” Lily exclaimed as she produced a bathing suit that was way to immodest to even be called a bathing suit.

“Ew…” Mia said, her face crinkling. “This is my decision, remember? And it’s our first date! I don’t want him thinking I’m some little slut who just wants to get some – cause I’m not.”

Lily raised her eyebrow and appraised her for a moment, stroking her chin. “Hmm…yeah, didn’t think of that. But you do want to make him like what he sees as well as just…well, you.” Mia narrowed her eyes, not sure how to take that.

Before she could say anything, Mia’s phone suddenly beeped, indicating that there was a message.

Unlocking her screen, she saw that the message was from Charlie.

We need to meet in your father’s restaurant to discuss work and such.

Mia sighed. Not more work. Can’t I ever get a moment to relax?

She then saw the bathing suit that Lily had chosen and a regular outfit to wear when they weren’t in the water and her breath caught in amazement.

She looked down at her phone.

Mmmm….

I’ve got something urgent going on at the moment. Talk about it later.

“Alright,” Lily said, completely unaware of anything that had just transpired as Mia quickly turned her phone off and put it away. “Let’s try these on shall we?”


So, not my best, but yeah. It’s all I could come up with at the moment.

Hope you enjoyed and have a great day/night!

The Broken Thread

Alright, so I had planned to do the next chapter of Overturned, but this came to mind and I decided to write this down before it slipped my mind.

Enjoy!


Maybe I can try again…

But you can’t do it right…

I could try again, but then…

You’ll once again end up a terrible sight.

 

Thoughts swirling

Constantly drowning

Screaming until throat is raw

As the monster within eats away

 

Shattered glass

Droplets of red, constantly dripping

Trying to find a semblance of normality

But you fucked that up, too

 

Slipping further and further away

As the water fills your lungs

As voices ring in your ear

Begging you to give in

 

Gripping the knife

Slowly raising it

As you finally reach for the voices

And into darkness you descend

Let It Go

Hey!

Me and my brother J-M’s History Corner a few days ago filmed ourselves singing I Will Survive after our good friend Lydia Potter had suggested that we do a video of us “singing” – or more ruining our own eardrums, lol! Anyway, it looks to be turning into a little franchise of us ruining these fabulous songs!!!

So, today, me and J-M filmed ourselves singing Let It Go – which was a LITTLE better than I Will Survive as 1) I was a LOT more composed 2) We were all more in sync and 3) we had one of our little brothers joining in as he sings SOOOOOO much better than me and J-M!!!!!

There are some downsides – we’re still pretty monotonous with our “singing” and while we tried to be lively and make it look fun….being infront of a camera gave us last-minute jitters, so….*cringes* fingers crossed….

We’re just doing this for fun and to give you all a laugh – which, judging by the responses to I Will Survive, we greatly succeeded in that area, LOL!!!!

Thank you all once again and I promise I am working on a story post to publish and that it will be out soon!!!!!

Enjoy!

My First YouTube Video

G’day everybody!!!

So *takes deep, deep breath* I have done my first YouTube video!!! A good friend of me and my brother J-Ms History Corner – the friend being none other than the famed Lydia Potter – suggested to my brother J-M that he do a video of him singing (even though he is terrible at singing) and I ended up joining in!

Warning: We are both terrible, terrible singers and we’re doing this just for fun, so feel free to laugh like we did…if you can get through watching it (I almost didn’t when we watched it afterwards ourselves). I was especially terrible – I was out of sync and couldn’t stop laughing/cringing, even when I was meant to be singing, so please forgive me!!!!

Anyway, here’s the video!!!!

Problems with WordPress

I am experiencing problems with WordPress at the moment – for some reason I am not getting notified of replies to my comments and even some comments on my own site!

So, if you’ve commented on one of my posts or replied to one of my comments anywhere and I haven’t liked or replied to it, it’s NOT because I’m ignoring you, but because for some reason, it’s not coming through on my end.

So, I’m going to leave the comment section open here to see if any of you guys comments come through at all as a test.

SHAHESHAL!!!!!

You need to follow her – she’s one of the most eccentric, bubbly, fun bloggers I have ever met! You won’t regret following her!

3. Do not forget to link to their blogging website.
4. Answer all the questions they have given you.
5. Nominate 7 to 10 bloggers of your choice.
6. Ask them 7 questions.

SHAHESHAL’S QUESTIONS:

When did something start out badly for you but in the end, it was great?

Me learning how to write. And some movies.

Oh, and participating in a writing roleplay group. Cause I had no idea what to do, it was difficult and sometimes embarrassing trying to get the hang of it, but once I did, it was awesome!

 

What food is delicious but a pain to eat?

What? Are you serious? Since when is food a pain to eat?!

What is the most amazing slow motion video you’ve seen?

What makes you roll your eyes every time you hear it?

“It’s too late for me. You go. Leave me.”

What’s your cure for hiccups?

I just drink lots of water and just wait for it to disappear. It always does eventually.

What movie quotes do you use on a regular basis?

The “And I…am Iron Man” quote from Avengers: Endgame when I’m goofing off with my friends.

And quotes from Pontius Pilate from Monty Python’s Life of Brian. Pilate in that movie has a lisp – every r is pronounced as a w – and it’s bloody hilawious!

What was cool when you were young but isn’t cool now?

Since I’m still young, I’ll go with ‘What was cool when you were a little kid, but isn’t cool now?’

That will be some of the shows I watched when I was little and some of the things I said and did while playing that I just cringe at now.

The Black Iris – Chapter 1

Welcome to all my new followers! Yesterday was my two year anniversary for Racheal’s Novels! You can go read about it here. Anyway, so I finally decided to sit down and watch the 2014 Noah movie last night and must say that it’s not as bad as I expected. It’s nowhere NEAR accurate to what actually happened, but that’s not what it’s trying to be. It’s simply being a completely fictitious fantasy story that is INSPIRED by Biblical accounts, kinda similar to one of my most recently completed story on FanFiction, which borrowed some elements from Revelation. Anyway, enough of my rant, seeing a fantasy movie take heavy inspiration from Noah’s story, gave me inspiration to write my own fantasy story combining many different elements and such from the Bible for it’s plot and I thought I would post a short snippet of my ideas so far, which I will be turning into a novel at some point. Enjoy!


Image result for woman warriors

Esther sighed as she heard a knocking on her door. Screw ’em, I ain’t moving me ass, she thought reached for the beer bottle again and raised it to her lips, taking a looonnnnggg swig.

It had been a shitty day.

Okay, so it was only seven in the morning and nothing had actually happened yet, but she was fairly certain it was going to be a shitty day.

Cause why else would someone be knocking so frantically at her door at seven in the morning other than to inform her that she yet again had apparently failed to pay some numbskull some money that she owed?

How she got these debts, she had no idea. It wasn’t like she was copiously throwing her money away – she was usually so stoned that she had no idea on what or whom she was spending all her money on.

But whatever. So long as these effin’ money collectors didn’t prevent her from having her booze, she was fine.

They can go to hell for all I care.

But the knocking didn’t stop.

And this time there was a voice accompanying it, practically yelling: “By order of the Royal Guard-”

Esther had shot up from the table and darted over to the door, tripping over clothes and items strewn across the floor, and yanked the door open as soon as she heard the word ‘Royal’. Oh my gosh. If I owe the ROYAL GUARDS money, I am sooo screwed!

When she yanked the door open, she was greeted by the head of the Royal Guard – Gabriel Arch. His high status was signified by the badge pinned to his white uniform – a pair of wings. The Head of the Royal Guard was also called an Archangel, and Esther knew that she didn’t want to mess with an Archangel.

“What is it, sir?” she asked, trying to hide the beer bottle behind her back. She usually didn’t care what people thought of her drinking, but if she was in trouble with Gabriel, she knew better than to let him catch her with any booze…not that it would be hard to decipher that she had been drinking…a simple glance at her appearance screamed I’VE BEEN DRINKING!!!!

He frowned at her for a moment before saying: “The king requires your presence as soon as possible. I would suggest changing into something more appropriate and a bath would be a good start.”

Shit. The king?

What does the king want with me?


Just a quick note: the woman in the warrior pic is meant to be Esther when she is sober and doing her job (You’ll find out what her job is later when I turn this into a novel later on). And I will not only be using Biblical elements and such for this story, but mythology as well from other cultures and such. It’s going to be a real fantasy.

Hope you enjoyed! Have a great day/night!

IT’S MY ANNIVERSARY!!!!

G’day!!!

Guess what?! Today is exactly two years since I started Racheal’s Novels!!!!

It’s my blog’s two year anniversary!

Last year, I wrote a story with me and my blogger friends to celebrate – (you can read it by clicking here) – but since I completely forgot that it was my blog’s two year birthday coming up, I haven’t been able to do anything this year, sorry.

Anyway, I just wanted to say how AMAZING it is that I have been blogging for TWO YEARS!!!! I seriously can’t believe it. Actually didn’t expect to be around this long.

I am so thankful to each and every one of you for your love and support.

I’ve met so many nice people on here and made a lot of friends – and hurt one.

I’m sorry that I haven’t been posting as much lately. I am going to try and remedy that 🙂

I’m really happy to have been here for two years and hope to be here for many more!

Liebster Award

G’day!

I was nominated for the Liebster Award by a great blogger called Mohamad.

https://mymartialpath.wordpress.com/2020/04/12/liebster-award/

Thank you Mohamad! He’s a great blogger that writes some interesting stories. You should check him out.

THE RULES:

11 FACTS ABOUT ME:

I usually tend to be quite laid back when it comes to picking movies to watch. There are some sorts that I absolutely refuse to touch (due to moral standards and such), but generally I’m not very fussy.

I LOVE a good fight scene in a movie! So love as it’s got great tension, great music, and the villains get their butts kicked, I’m hooked! Examples of movies with the best fight scenes ever are:

  • The Matrix trilogy (I haven’t seen the third Matrix movie yet as I am watching the second one for the first time right now, but judging by how it’s going so far, I think it’s safe to say that the third one will have great action, too).
  • Equilibrium (2002)
  • The MCU movies (particularly the climax of Avengers: Endgame)

I love the WHOLE Jurassic Park franchise – even Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

I can’t think of anything else to say that I haven’t said before.

MOHAMAD’S QUESTIONS:

What is your favourite food?

I believe I’ve answered this one before.

What country are you from?

Mars.

Yes, I know that’s not a country. That’s the point.

What kind of music do you like?

Don’t really have a preference.

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

I don’t think I’ve had that question before. Great question.

Biggest regret in life?

And that’s relevant to you and everyone else reading this how?

Are you an introvert or extrovert?

That’s for you to work out.

What’s your passion?

Writing.

Why do you follow my blog?

I don’t. I will occasionally go and read it, but I don’t actually follow.

If you were a drink ( alcoholic or non-alcoholic) what would you be?

Actually, this is the most original question I’ve ever been asked in an award post. This is a hard one to answer. I would be something sweet but spicy at the same time – i.e., I’m sweet and cute but can (and WILL) be quite ferocious – so, I’d go for…I’m actually not quite sure. Something sweet and spicy.

Do you believe in after life?

Yep.

Do you believe in karma?

I’ll explain karma for those who may not know what it means. Karma is basically cause and effect. I.E. Some things happen that are a direct result of your actions. Or a better and more simplistic way of putting it is: You reap what you sow.

Karma's a b***h | KARMA IN A NUTSHELL: | image tagged in karma,karma's a bitch,mad karma,jurassic world,indoraptor | made w/ Imgflip meme maker

(Yes, I created that meme).

So basically, yes, I do believe in karma. Whether it’s immediately or in the way we expect, what we do will come back to bite us if we’re not careful and not doing the right thing. Your sins will find you out. You reap what you sow. If you do a good deed, say a kind word, or something else that is good, it will have an affect, whether it’s noticeable and if it is, it will have an affect whether we realize it or not.

For example, let’s say you are going somewhere and you have this feeling – a gut instinct, that little voice in your head that tells you right from wrong – that you need to go up and talk to this person that you just saw for the first time. Just generally chat or say something in particular that you feel you need to say. You may not know why, but you better do it because there is a reason for it. It could be that person is depressed and be thinking of suicide or is struggling with some other sort of problem and if you follow that gut feeling, what you are feeling to do – going up and chatting – could be what prevents them from doing what they are doing. We have no idea, or refuse to think about it, but words do have an effect. They are POWERFUL!!!! Life or death IS IN THE TONGUE, and we refuse to think about it. We brush it off, thinking it’s of no consequence BUT IT IS!!!!

Words matter.

You may speak with no intentions of evil, but something evil can still happen from it, which is why we must guard our mouths.

I know this from personal experience. Stuff some people said to me sent me into a depression and got me feeling suicidal at one point. I never actually tried to commit suicide, but I felt like doing it for a long time. I wasn’t bullied, if that’s what you’re thinking, but the stuff the people said hurt enough for that to happen. Looking back, I now realize that the people meant no harm and some of it was just said in the heat of the moment, but it’s why we need to be careful.

So, despite that saying, words do hurt.

And they DO have an affect.

THE QUESTIONS:

What weird food combinations do you really enjoy?

Thank you for asking me this! I LOVE to experiment with food to see how it will taste!

I love grilled cheese, tomato sauce, and avocado. You put the avocado on first, then the tomato sauce (yes, tomato sauce) and then the cheese and then stuff it in the oven and voila! An exotic, crispyish delicacy is ready to seduce your taste buds.

Another one that I love that my friends call ‘weird’ is having yoghurt with Jam (in America I think it’s called Jelly) and peach slices.

I didn’t have it personally, but yesterday my youngest brother had a bun with butter, jam, chicken and cheese. I did take a little bit and it did taste delicious, I do admit, but I decided not to have it and just stick to a chicken and cheese sandwich.

Another one that I discovered recently as well is a wrap with butter, grated cheese, mashed potato and gravy, Coleslaw and beef slices and little bits of spinach. Oh, and an egg.

What food have you never eaten but would really like to try?

Can’t think of any.

Do you think that aliens exist?

No. But I do love to watch movies/TV shows with aliens, even though they don’t exist, such as the Independence Day movies, the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, Man of Steel (2013), Lilo & Stitch, Star Wars, Transformers: Prime, Transformers: Robots In Disguise; Transformers: Rescue Bots Academy.

What movie can you watch over and over without ever getting tired of?

Star Wars movies, Jurassic Park movies, the first Independence Day movies, the MCU movies, the Chronicles of Narnia movies, Breakthrough, and any Disney movies.

What’s something that will always be in fashion, no matter how much time passes?

Taxes

What’s the most expensive thing you’ve broken?

Can’t think of any.

What game have you spent the most hours playing?

There’s a few – Candy Crush, The Enigma Express: Murder Files, Lily’s Garden, Jewels of Rome, an online Uno game, and some other games like Typing Tournament, Maths Invaders, Baggin’ the Dragon.
