Chapter 10: Cage (1/6)

Chapter 10: Cage (1/6)

New Guy and CeeCee were in the silver building’s lobby talking quietly.

“I think you should ask her what her style is or ask for her ideal party dress,” said CeeCee.

Me? I don’t have style, remember? I don’t know about these things.  How am I supposed to hold a conversation? You also speak English.”

“If I ask her, she’ll think I’m prying into her life.  She and I might not be friends after this.”

Chapter 9: Search (2/2)

CeeCee was still throwing dresses and New Guy was opting out of interfering with CeeCee’s method of searching for the right dress for Elle.  He chose the opportune time to speak to CeeCee when she was done with one store and going to the next one.  He finally got this great idea …

Chapter 9: Search (1/2)

The next morning, Elle rode the subway with the pillow placed on top of the neatly folded blanket she washed yesterday.  Today was a bit cooler than yesterday so she arrived at work with less perspiration in her peony pink blouse with sleeves to her elbows and denim short shorts.

“Morning,” Elle said in her natural, calm voice to the receptionist.  “Is JZ here?”

Chapter 8: Know-Not

Elle woke up at 5am.  She went to the restroom to rinse her mouth, wash her face and arms, and ran her fingers through her hair.  Since no one was at work yet, it was a good time to leave before anyone saw her.  She took her purse, wrapped herself with JZ’s blanket, and used his pillow to …

Tags Finally Work!

Hi everyone,

Just updated my posts for tagging.  For now, only some will actually give you better results, such as “Paparazzi” and “Fans,” will give you more than 1 result.  Yay! For others, you will have to wait for future posts.

How my tags will work:

  1. Click on tag
  2. Results of post(s)
  3. Click on post title or “Continue reading”
  4. Click on link to chapter

I think searching (in the search bar) will give you better results because the results will take you to the pages themselves.  Tags do have their uses.  Chapters with “Vegetarian Dish” or “Meat Dish” tags will be included for those of you interested in all the food that will be involved.

Stay hungry,

Leanne Lieu

P.S. Achievement unlocked.

Chapter 7: Statements

Tuesday.  Elle arrived to work wet, yet again.  In a lavender blouse with short sleeves and denim short shorts, she went to Buzzy’s workroom to find New Guy.

“Morning Buzzy,” she said calmly.

“Morning,” he replied without looking at her.

“Morning CeeCee.”


“I don’t think I’ll need you too much today, so when I need you I’ll find you, ok?”

“Yeah, sure.”

“Morning New Guy.”


“Come with me for a moment.”

Chapter 6: Restart

Chapter 6: Restart (1/2)

Walking several blocks to the subway station, riding the subway, and then walked another few blocks to arrive at the studio was a three-hour long commute each way from home to work in the sweltering heat and high humidity for Elle….

Chapter 6: Restart (2/2)

Elle returned to Buzzy’s workroom with a red nose and puffy eyes.

“What happened?” Buzzy asked, concerned.

To CeeCee, “I cut the tour short,” she quietly said.

CeeCee translated.

“But you were gone for more than an hour,” he asked, a little frustrated at the absurd answer she gave him.
