An apt gif because quite a while later, things get mysterious and dark...!
Yuri was out last night and I was asleep before she was back.
But when I saw her this morning she had a black eye.
It wasnt like uber dark, but its definitely noticeable.
Before she left around noon, I asked her about it, she looked at me, paused for a second, gave me a half-smile then left.
It could be anything but right then I realized I have no clue what she does all day, or even who shes with.
I'm worried because shes so damn evasive.
Sit down and talk to her
Communications: Not such a useless major after all.
Seriously, though, I second that.
Shes always calm, cryptic and very...
like she wants to tell me but things might change if she does.
This is all just educated speculation and behavioral profiling though.
I'll definitely have to try harder to get her to open up to me.

If I knew her friends...
Julie moved to colorado.
Shes the only friend of her's I met.
I didn't think it'd hurt this much.
What happened ?
I want to criticize him for being so vague, but I also don't want to beat him over the head while he's clearly troubled.
So what the hell happened!?!?!?
I tried getting Yuri to talk with me and stop being so secretive.
She started talking really really fast, agitated like, and said something about "ruining a good thing," and "Sorry but we're done. No hard feelings"
She packed up and disappeared!
I mean... shes GONE! She even took her Rocky poster!
She packed up ? Didn't know she was living with you.
Can you recall anything she said while she talked really really fast ?
ugh she talks so fast
uhh "shouldnt fix what isnt broken"
"why can't i just stop"?
And then, hooray, a new character the page after, just like the last time:
What predates Abby? This girl does. For the sake of preserving identity, we'll call her Kara.
She's been infatuated with this other chick, who we'll call Eight, for the LONGEST time.
It was like a lost cause loving Kara, but she was irresistible.
So label it "indefinitely postponed" and move ON!
Still friends. See each other everyday. And she knows how I feel.
Despite always being secretive, she ACTUALLY confided in me tonight!
Stuff she hasn't even told Eight!
This is EPIC!
Then somehow after she says something about how I'm a really really nice guy, and could someday soon be more than just a friend, we were talking about falling sleeping in my bed, and the "what if's" that entails.
Anyways, she ends up just going home cause shes exhausted and has work tomorrow,
I feel like...
(This is where I feel NiteOwl stooped to a new low. He invented a lesbian who, as part of his fantasy, he would convert to heterosexuality.)
You like a girl that likes girls?
Kids, don't be Ben Affleck.
Its a long story, but she hasn't trusted men since she was a young teen.
The first person who's really really cared about her and helped her through tough times is Eight.
I'm smart enough to not mess with that, I'm not exactly competing, but she knows I really really like her.
So opening up to me is a big step towards psychological recovery for her, and a big brownie point in my favor.
But, this thing with Kara, Eight and their friend Ann, is fricking irritating.
Ann has a thing for Eight, but everyone, including Ann, prentends like she doesn't!
And Ann is SUCH a pretentious bitch; undeniably cute but completely arrogant, condescending, vulgar and outright cruel. Kara hates being around her, but because Ann and Eight are bffs, Eight wants Ann around. Anyways Kara is so hopelessly attached to Eight that she willingly suffers through Ann's presence.
If Eight REALLY loved Kara, she wouldn't bring Ann around. It makes me angry to no end.
Not to mention, I'm about as charming as Seth Fuckin Rogan when Eight and Ann are around,
(both are man-hating lesbians btw)
they bring out my sarcastic pissy attitude thats painfully unfunny.
But when its just me and Kara hanging out...
I'm not going to try and tell you to cut your ties with her or any of that bullshit, but you should at least deal with those feelings. Have you confronted her about it?
yeah, I have.
went over really well too, i also got the vibe that she wanted to reciprocate my feelings but... would feel guilty if she did.
I just get this feeling that Kara and Eight have some serious history.
Not relationship wise, but something else...
Kara doesn't act in 'love' per se, but more like... infatuation.
Like being around a celebrity, who saved your life...
Theres this uneasiness that you can feel everytime someone asks about Kara's past.
Its all but been directly admited that she had been violated (by a man, obviously thats where her male trust issues stem from) when she was younger, I'm wondering if Eight somehow helped her recover emotionally & physically?
Thats a big deal.

This whole situation seems really weird dude. So she has a cruch on a girl who has a crush on another girl... and that means the two of you are on the road to relationshipville?
Yeeeeeeeaaaaaah..............I'm just going to say that I agree with this.
Seriously Niteowl, you still haven't told us WHY is it that you have a chance with Super-Girl.
no no no lol
Kara is infatuated with Eight.
Eight is supposedly in love with Kara.
(seen no evidence to the contrary. But she doesn't really express it either...)
Ann, Eight's friend, has crush on Eight.
I have a shot with Kara because,
A: She trust me more than anyone
B: She confides in me, massive secrets that she hasn't even told Eight
C: Because she's said so.
but its "B" that really blew me away.
partly because she confided in ME, and partly because of what she told me.
I have hooked up with Kara before, but she doesn't remember cause it was right after Eight "dumped" her and she has like 3 entires days blacked out. Repressed or something, Kitty explained it to me.
So I've had to pretend that didn't happen cause Eight & Kara are back together. again.
Anyway, predictable situations, Eight will get tired of Kara and break it off, or Eight will simply disappear.
Everytime I see them together, Kara is giddy but wary she might piss off Eight, and Eight is increasingly agitated.
Not to mention they don't 'get' each other.
Eight's sense of humor is dry, sarcastic and condescending.
Kara's sense of humor is slightly sarcastic, and somewhat juvenile.
Not to mention Eight has NO respect for Kara's friends.
you see that relationship lasting?

Whoa whoa whoa... you had sex with a chick when she was getting over a tough break up that made her lose touch with reality for three days? That is a seriously dick move.
Yeah it wasnt my finest moment, nor is it a point of pride.
i feel like shit about that,
but, the fact she was more than willing,
says alot; like she is INTO me (i think) and IS bi.
this was pretty much one of the reasons I wasnt keen on telling.
I'm just glad she doesn't remember.
Dr. Brooklyn wrote:
So this thread has a subplot that had a super ambighuous ending and want closure... any details NiteOwl?
details? like updates?
Well Kara is distressed cause she's thoroughly convinced Eight doesn't love her anymore.
Kara also stood up to Ann and told her off,
then I told her off too.
and uh, I'm pretty much Kara's safe place atm.
Kitty has a thing for Eight, Ann is still a self absorbed bitch, and Eight just seems wholly disinterested.

nah i just wasn't myself today. usually i'm very optimistic,

shit caught up with me.
this may sound crass, but if you're not actually going to explain your posts in this thread your posts aren't really needed. The function of this thread has become that we chat about stuff, but posts like this don't give us any room to work with.
I think most people "don't understand you" is because you don't usually fill us in until way after we have asked and gotten confused.
well, me and Kara atm are just friends. And for now, thats great.
I dont know if i could actually deal with anything romantic atm.
Just in it for the drinks and the laughs right now.
Also, unfortunately, Kara is very self-destructive, and often she comes to me for advice and support, and last night I had gotten in a serious fight with my family and couldnt be my usual optimistic "everything's alright" guy.
So it was awkward, but we both kinda just went home on weird terms.
Even for friends.
I met up with Kara tonight and neither Eight, Kitty, or even Ann was around.
The weird thing is, I hadn't seen her for a couple days, and now...
well she was putting the moves on me!
I kept asking her questions and shit, but she was evasive as fuck, and was hell bent on getting laid.
I eventually talked my way out of it, and she seemed genuinely disheartened.
I kept waiting for a catch, for the other shoe to drop... but it really was as simple as it seemed.
She was so disappointed, and by that point I felt like a jerk somehow.
I'm so confused! I don't wanna hurt anybody, or step on any toes,
so did I do the right thing...
or did I just cock-block myself for no good reason?
Well I did tell her that I was willing, and "theres nowhere else I'd rather be, and nobody else I'd rather be here with..."
But I wasn't going to do the wild thing with her if her & Eight were still an item!
Eight couldn't be further detached and Kara has kinda noticed.
She of course is convinced there MUST be something wrong with her.
Then I come along, practically worshiping the ground she walks on,
and when she tries to open up and connect with me, intimately...
I pull back.
Damn that sent the wrong message...
Now she's even more convinced that she's the problem.
