[SU x MSA] A Cup of CoffeeEvery day at about 2:30 in the afternoon, Lapis walked from the park to the YMCA on 49th (for a shower) to the Sunshine Café on 36th (for coffee). On the way she counted—counted her steps, counted how much money she had to spend (usually enough for said coffee, sometimes a pastry), and how much time had passed.[SU x MSA] A Cup of Coffee by supergeek17
Eight years was a long time to be trapped under the ocean, and another three years to travel from one coast to the other. Sometimes she wondered if she should have stayed—but she never thought about it long, because by the time she started to have those sorts of thoughts, she was at the café door. From here, the ritual became more complex. Find a small table—off to the side, out of the line of sight of most of the other customers, in the same section if she could help it.
The section she favored had a nice server—an older human male, soft spoken and wide pale gray eyes whose name tag read in plain block type Elliot. Best of all, he didn't
[TBOL] Glooming Peace (A Goodbye)In order of having them, Joaquín’s thoughts were gratitude that María has unhurt, and relief that Manolo had been mistaken about the snakebite—and then regret, for the things he’d said to him before leaving him on the bridge.[TBOL] Glooming Peace (A Goodbye) by supergeek17
That he’d thought Manolo should have been the one to die instead of María—not even grief could excuse that, and as soon as he was able, Joaquín excused himself from the Posada family’s company, and then their estate, to find Manolo and offer apologies and beg his forgiveness.
The plan was complicated by the fact that Manolo wasn't at home (or any of his usual haunts, for that matter), and by the fact that neither his family nor the Rodriguez brothers had seen him since late last night. Joaquín decided he wouldn't allow himself to be troubled by this information—worrying wouldn't find him any faster. Instead, he pulled his sombrero low over his eyes to guard against the worsening rain, and started t

Yao became ill quickly, within hours of Laima’s arrival in Anhai. Brutal waves of unforgiving nausea that gave way to the worst kind of stomach sickness—worse than anything she had ever seen before.
At least with other illnesses, there was a reprieve between bouts. This—no, this was something new and terrifying, where Yao could barely breathe or gather his bearings before vomiting again… and again… and again…
There were whispers of it—she and her brothers all had names for the illness that had gripped Anand’s homeland and spread to Arthur and a dozen other Nations. It wasn’t until the servants apologized for simply being unable to remove and clean the chamber pots fast enough that she was forced to look it in the face. Holera.
As much water as she tried to give him, it just wasn’t enough. It wasn’t for lack of thirst—more than anything, Yao pleaded for water in a way
The biggest thing is that I thought I was having a heart attack on Monday. I woke up and my my chest felt weird, which I figured was because I slept on it weird (I’m a stomach sleeper). It didn't get better as the morning went on—got worse in fact, to the point that I was a 3-4 on the pain scale. I went to the ER just after lunch.
The good news is it’s not a heart attack. The alight news is that I have a follow up appointment tomorrow afternoon. The words “referral,” “specialist” and “aortic abnormality” were thrown around, so I’m a little worried. I’m sure it’ll be fine, but all the same… :l Referral means a cardiac specialist, which means Anchorage, which means colossal song and dance and much more serious than I initially figured.
I’ve been going in the pool during the kids’ swim lessons. That’s fun, and despite not knowing how to swim, I’m enjoying it immensely. Water is immensely soothing to me. Too bad it wears me out and I’m always dead tired once I’m out and dried off lol.
