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.”

“Morning.”

“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.”

“Morning.”

“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….

Wind

Bend people

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.

Chapter 5: Job

Chapter 5: Job

On his way to Elle’s apartment the next morning with breakfast, JZ remembered his primary lyricist’s words, “End her misery already,” and that was what he intended to do.  He arrived at her apartment and knocked on the door.  No answer.  He knocked again and apologetically said, “Sorry I acted like a bad boy yesterday.  Please forgive me,” on the other side of the door.  Still no answer.  Worried…

What else you'll find:

Peach Blossom

In vibrant pinks and purples

The essence of

Beauty and tenderness

In pairs and singles

Together married

Until one dies

In five petals

Birth, suffering

Enjoyment, death, rebirth

In the center

Like limbs

Like family

Chapter 4: Flash

The next morning, JZ knocked on Elle’s door.  There was no answer.  He knocked again.  There was no answer again.  Worried, he burst in to find her in the stained ruby dress and lying on the floor beside her bed, like she did not have the strength to get herself on top of the bed.  He came closer and saw that she was still pale, and was uncertain if she was still alive….

Chapter 3: Sick

The next day, Elle looked in the fridge and saw no food, so she knew she had to go to the grocery store.  She was prepared to ignore JZ’s fans and the paparazzi at the grocery store and on her way there, but was not prepared for what was at her door….
