Have you ever had one of those moments that when you look back, you wonder how it happened? Like a Escher print, you know something changed, but you don’t know how. Well, April 11 was that way for me. I was with my Evey. She seemed a little down. So, I offered her an eight layer lemon cake I was…
I can’t believe it’s already September. And I’m getting married. And…
Yeah….again my author is a -big- idjit. Can we destroy a company? I think they hate me. They kept my author so busy that getting on here was almost impossible [gives big wolfie eyes] Forgive?
Have you ever had one of those moments that when you look back, you wonder how it happened? Like a Escher print, you know something changed, but you don’t know how. Well, April 11 was that way for me. I was with my Evey. She seemed a little down. So, I offered her an eight layer lemon cake I was trying out. She seemed so happy and asked me to marry her. I thought she was joking. She was always telling em how she would never get married, that it wasn’t for her.
Well, it seemed she changed her mind and I didn’t pick up on it. We had an argument, and she left. Later, she came back and we talked it out. Finally realizing that she had been serious, I got my grandmother’s engagement ring. I’ve been wanting to give it to her, but had hesitated when she said she never wanted to get married. So, I wasn’t going to pass up this opportunity to ask Evey to marry me. Happily she said yes.
Well, our little group was pretty happy, having fun, enjoying life, and then THEY came. Not much is known about the Shadow Grimm other than they hate humans and wesen interacting and think Nick is a traitor for being my friend…..Oh and they want me dead. When Nick and Teph tried to go to the trailer to see what she could find, they attacked. They took Teph and told Nick he had to kill me. I came up with a plan. Nick would give me to them alive and take Teph away. They accepted this. I fought them and killed them. [frowns] I don’t want to get anymore into that. It did seem that it was a good thing I came up with this plan since they had been torturing Teph while they had her. The group is a little shaken right now, and worried that it will get worse.
Before all of the -real- craziness started happening, Nick felt he need to FINALLY tell Juliette about being a Grimm. She of course didn’t believe him and said his Aunt Marie had been affected by her cancer, when his aunt told him about this. He even took her to the trailer to show her the books, but the woman had arguments for that too. It wasn’t until I showed up and “wolfed out” did she believe. She took it much better than I expected. I believed there would be running and screaming, but she just passed out. When she woke up, she asked some questions, but she accepted everything. She keeps asking Nick if they can come over to my house. I think she’s addicted to my vegetarian pizza [chuckles]
As I’ve said before, I do have a girlfriend. I still don’t know how she was willing to give me the time of day, but there you go. She grew up wanting to be a singer, but ended up being a half-demon instead. I don’t know the whole story, just that it’s -long- and complicated. I -do- know she dated a few angels and a hunter who was obsessed with pie. [shrugs] I don’t care about her past. The important thing is she understands the difficulty of struggling with a dark side, and she makes me happy. [smiles]
Introducing His Girlfriend: The Compassionate Support
The next person in our group is Nick’s girlfriend, Juliette Silverton. I’m pretty sure Nick would have lost it by now without her. She keeps him anchored in the light, while I help him navigate the dark. Juliette is -important- to keep Nick balanced. If he lost her, I wouldn’t doubt that he’s turn to the shadow….but that’s another post.
Okay. Now I’m going to introduce you to my group. The first is my best friend, Nick Burkhardt. He’s a Grimm, which makes our friendship a little…odd. You know considering his family and my don’t usually go to the same mixers, if you know what I mean. Still don’t know why his aunt didn’t have him learn German. [sigh]
Have you ever thought about settling down someday, or are you going to be a bachelor blutbad forever?
Actually, I found a girlfriend on Twitter. Her name is Evey. Go check her out @AintYourBitch_ .She is sweet, smart, sassy, and beautiful. She’s also a half-demon (long story). You never know what’s going to happen with Evey. She keeps me on my toes, that’s for sure. She seems to have a fear of commitment which she came by honestly. Still she makes me giddy, which -really- shocked Nick. He says he’s never seen me so happy. I’m not going to argue with that.
You say you do pilates.. but do you do any Yoga, or even, yogalates?
I mostly do pilates. I tried yoga once and decided it wasn’t for me when I caused an incident trying to do the “Tree” pose…..I don’t want to talk about that. Soooo anyway, I do try to mix it up with a little hiking. Love the outdoors. What can I say. I use to be in scouts [nods]
Hi. Let me introduce myself. The name is Monroe. I’m a blutbad , who’s trying to have a quiet peaceful life. I gave up my wild ways and became a vegetarian that does Pilates every morning. Then I became friends with a Grimm, and waved my quiet life good-bye. So, ask me a question.
