Macie: *Voice over; Nasally* Previously on the Adventures of the Rhapsody girls Z!
Janie: We’re ready to go, Mom. We’re just a bit concerned about something.
Alex: It’s about these two girls that were among us today. They were new.
Charlene: Yeah. Like really new. First day in school… And as far as we know… from what Zoey let out… Only been in this city for like about 3 days now.
Dinah: Any idea as to who the two girls are?
Janie: From what Zoey said… She said that the names of the two girls were Joanna Barlow. Or so she told us… She happened to have met one of the two girls. Some nasal congested girl named Macie Lightfoot. A Band geek… We never heard of them… But Zoey and the boy she was with… Ridge… were with her…
LORELAI: Listen, I have some explaining to do. OK. So sit down in that tiny little chair and I’m gonna do it right now. *As Rory sits* That man on the porch was your teacher.
RORY: Mom, I’m a little behind in school but not so far behind that I don’t know who the teacher is. So?
LORELAI: So — um — he and I were going to sort of hang out together.
RORY: On a date.
LORELAI: No, on a — something that could appear like a date to the untrained eye.
RORY: To your daughter’s eye?
LORELAI: It was a date.
RORY: How long have you been dating him?
LORELAI: I haven’t. This was gonna be the first time.
RORY: And when were you planning on telling me about this — your wedding?
LORELAI: No — by the rehearsal dinner at least.
RORY: He’s my teacher.
LORELAI: I know.
RORY: He teaches me things every day in a very small classroom with a lot of other kids who probably won’t be high-fiving me when they find this out.
LORELAI: I know, sweetie, and I told him this was one of the things I was concerned about.
LORELAI: And he thought we could be discreet.
LORELAI: Are you mad?
Janie: not to forget that we too are mad… and disturbed.
LORELAI: Alright. Because I’m dating him?
RORY: Because you lied to me.
Alex: You lied to us too…
LORELAI: I kept information from you.
RORY: Information that I should have had.
Charlene: Something that we all should have had. Do you know at all… of how humiliating it is to know that one of our own is dating one of our teachers?
Janie: Mom… Don’t. It is wrong and you know it. The Hostile people at chilton happen to see us as rejects and lonewolfs… Miscreants who don’t belong. If this gets out… that Lorelai is dating Mr. Medina… You do know that the beasts there will eat us alive… right? Paris the Hostile Paranoid gestapo of Chilton Prep Gellar and her floozies… Plus that guy… Tristan. They’ll lock on their sights towards us and not let go. Ever again.
LORELAI: Information that would have come out eventually. Like the Iran-Contra scandal. *To the girls* It won’t ever get that bad. Besides that if it is discreet… how exactly will they ever suspect?
Dinah: Good point. Although after how the school treated our daughters… I’d rather beg on differing against that currently. Somehow… with cupid’s arrow stuck up your buttocks, Lorelai… You’re only seeing the enticement of Lust and love. Romantic repose.
RORY: So you’re Oliver North.
LORELAI: No, I’m Fawn Hall.
LORELAI: Well, she was much prettier.
RORY: I just can’t believe that you didn’t tell me about this. Why wouldn’t you tell me?
Charlene: Or tell us. *Scoffs* You know… it’s a good thing that Blossom and Leslie aren’t here to hear this. They’d be throwing a unsettling conniption fit. Forget the subtleties. She’d be wanting to claw at someone. At least Blossom would. Blossom’s the one with the sparky personality.
Dinah: Oh yeah. That’s true. Blossom is the sparky one… isn’t she?
Dinah: *Walking over fast to the girls close by* Janie, Alex… Charlene… We have to go now. The Hospital just called…
Janie: What’s wrong?
Dinah: No… Not really. Leslie’s father has passed away.
Leslie: *Gasps; shooting up in disbelief* You’ve got to be kidding me, Mom. I can’t be with that much money. I am nothing of a Billionaire. I’d never be able to handle that kind of money. I barely can handle the kind of money that i happen to possess now as of current.
Blossom: Mom… You have to be pulling our damn legs. Leslie’s gonna be the head of taking on all of Mr. Burke’s… Carl’s Assets?
Leslie: *Seeing the lifeless body of her father* That’s him. Oh my god… He’s pale. He’s also cold. Cover him up. *Unstable* Cover him up. He’s freezing. Please cover him up.
Blossom: *With a tear soaked face* It’s not fair. Why did he have to die? He was holding on just yesterday. We managed to call here and were told that he was doing just fine. How could this have happened?
Dr. Mizuno: *Walking over to Mrs. Burke with Emil Hamilton* Mrs. Burke. We are deeply sorry for your loss. We just started to fill in the papers for his transfer to the morgue.
???: *Walking by* Hey there… You okay?
Blossom: *Sobbing* No. I’m not. Can’t you see that i’m grieving over the loss. I just lost my father-in-law tonight. He passed on only an hour ago.
???: Really? Wow… I’m really sorry to hear that. Who was your father-in-law? *Curious*
Blossom: *Through her tears* Carl V. Burke. He happens to be the father to my wife Leslie T. Burke. But he became my father-in-law once i married Leslie.
???: Oh… So i take it that you’re gay. Is that right?
Blossom: Yeah. I am gay and i am proud of it.
???: I’m okay with that. One reason being that i too happen to be gay. Just don’t tell my mom. Tammy. She’d keel over.
Blossom: She would, huh? Who’s your mom? Miss Bellum? Just kidding of course. But… *Sniffling* Seriously. Who is she?
???: Tammy Garland.
Blossom: Garland… *Trying to think* Wait… Garland… She wouldn’t be the one who was tied to the one that tried to destroy my Aunts Paige, Pearl and Dinah back almost 20 years ago… would she? Not that i would harp on it… it’s the past. Lot has changed since then… But is she?
???: Yeah. I’m her daughter. The daughter to her and the guy who tried to do that awful thing. She didn’t. He did. But she won’t talk of him and i never pushed. Nor do i intend to.
???: *Sighs* Tammy, You know that you’re supposed to keep away from them. It’s taboo to be around them. Your mom even told you that she cut all ties with them. It made her a better person. She wants it that way. She doesn’t hate them… But she just wants to keep that chapter of her life closed.
Tammy Jr.: That maybe her. But i’m not gonna ward them off. I mean… Just because she’s alone without my dad who i don’t mention and she won’t talk about… doesn’t mean that i can’t befriend them. This girl is one of them. I think that it’s cool. She can just get over it, Saturday. I love her… But i am not gonna be made to suffer with her fear of having that part of her life coming back.
Saturday: If you wish. But if your mom finds out… You better have a nice cover story for what you’re trying to do hanging around one of them. She will be all over you.
Blossom: What?! Why’s her mom afraid of being around my family?
Saturday: It’s nothing for you to know. But i would suppose that you should be made aware of the reasons as to why her mom is afraid of your family. It’s because of what happened nearly 20 years ago… When your Aunts… Paige, Pearl and Dinah went against this guy named Stroker. The guy was a complete mystery… the only thing known about him was that he happened to be some technical Whiz-Prodigy. Knew alot about the electronics. It was said that he was once the professor to the 3 girls. Till his life was taken from him. All records have been deleted from the mark of time though… but the Widow… She still remembers it.
Blossom: *Ecstatic; dramatically while through sobs* Oh my god… I totally can’t believe this. That incident was considered a closed matter and deemed as one that never happened. It was wiped from the memory banks from every database known to the world. Global and/or International. Never to be spoken of… ever again. I mean… *Scoffs; with her voice breaking and in tears* I just lost my father-in-law. He died tonight and i’m right now grieving… Grieving… and you … you… *Squeaking in an upset voice; Devastated and in emotional agony* You Want to bring that old scar up… NOW! *Angrily and in pain* How Dare you! Who do you even think you are?! What do you want for the public to know? That my Aunt’s are murderers? Is that it? Okay… fine. Yes. They are murderers. They took the life of the man named Stroker. They killed him. There… HAPPY?! *Sobbing into her hands*
Leslie: *Crying in agony and heartbreak* No… Father. He’s gone… No! No…! Isn’t fair. It isn’t fair… No. Not father… He’s gone. How can he be dead? How can it be true?
Leslie was bawling in tears. She loved her father and held him closer to her than anyone could ever comprehend. She was entwined in love for him. As a daughter-father iron-clad bond. But as she was laying there Bawling…
???: *Walking over from the entrance leading to the doors heading into the Emergency entrance of the Hospital* Hey… Are you… Okay?
Leslie: Go away… I’m too broken right now. *Sobbing in grief*
???: I can’t go away. I’m involved now. You’re on the ground hurt.
Leslie: *Shooting out* No i am not. I’m grieving. Can’t you tell what grieving is? I just lost my father. He’s dead. He died of a heart attack and it was due to complications from the Triple bypass surgery. *Crying* No… Why…. Why him?
???: It is inevitable for a person to pass from there being complications to having a major surgery. Alot of people usually don’t make it from having a triple bypass. Most even die while being the operating table as the surgical procedure happens. Not many survive. For someone like your father to survive that is rare. No one survives that. Not really. For the ones who do though… They go on to live… for years. Many years till they reach a very old age.
Leslie: How do you even know that? You didn’t know my father.
???: I didn’t know him… But i do know what it is that i just told you. Anyone would know that. Bypass surgery is commonly risky. Why do you think that they call it a bypass? For fun? No. It’s deemed as something risky. Highly dangerous. For there to be a triple Bypass… The chances of survival are unknown. It just depends on the person.
Leslie: *Sobbing* …
Leslie: *Sniffling* So… Who are you anyway? Do we know you?
???: Gaby Sun Mercer. I was looking for my brother… But then i heard the sounds of someone crying. It lead me here to you.
Leslie: Seems like you were more curious than anything. *Thinking* Wait a minute… Did you just say Mercer? As in Tess Mercer?
Gaby: Who’s that? I don’t know any Tess Mercer. But i know of someone else with the last name Mercer.
Gaby: My Brother… Ridge. He’s the one who goes around singing through town.
Gaby: Wife? You’re married? But… Wait. How old are you?
Gaby: 15-16? How could they let you get married… at 15? That’s too young still. Was it planned or set up?
Leslie: Yes. It was the working plan between my mom and my Wife’s father. They had it all set up. We were all for it. My wife and I are very blessed to have had the wedding. I love her. She loves me.
Gaby: That’s really sweet. It really is.
Joanna: *Smoking* I don’t know what i was thinking in believing that i’d ever make it in school. Carly thinks that i’m still Johnny. I don’t really have any friends. No one is wanting me there. Carly’s sister certainly doesn’t. *Sighs*
Macie: *Walking over to the balcony* Why would you think that, Joanna?
Joanna: Why would i not think that, Macie. You’ve seen how the school dwelling teens were looking at me.
Macie: I know. But don’t you think that it’s a little paranoid to think that the school wouldn’t like you? You had to have made at least a couple friends. What about that girl Zoey? What about her? There were others who you made friends with. Ridge. He happens to really like me. But i don’t know if he really means that he wants to be my boyfriend.
Joanna: I would guess that if he likes you… that much. It must mean that he wants to be your love interest. It’s sweet. You’re making it already. Better than i am.
Macie: You’re making it too… Joanna. You must be feeling the doubt of the situation. Thinking that you’re not making it.
Joanna: How am i making it, Macie? Carly… She still thinks that Johnny is here. She thinks that i’m still Johnny Barlow. I’m not who she thinks that i am. But… try as i might… i can’t seem to convince her.
Macie: Joanna, You can’t really blame her about that She obviously had some sort of history with you while you were… *Clearing her nose* the other. No matter how limited it might have been… there was still a history. She and you as the other happened to likely have gotten close. Real close and like relationship close. There are things about us girls… When we are that deep connected to something or someone… no matter what it is… We’re not bound to just let it go that easily. It doesn’t work like that. It never did.
Joanna: Macie, What exactly is it that you want me to say? That i happen to ward certain people off? I don’t know what else to say about it. I just know that Carly is seeing Johnny whenever it is that she looks at me. She’s definitely hooked on seeing him. It’s starting to seem like i’m hurting her by staying here. Because of the fact that i remind her greatly of Johnny.
Macie T.: *On the phone* Hey Squirt. You in front of the T.V?
Macie: *On the phone* Not now. Why?
Macie T.: Do yourself a favor and turn it on. And find Channel 4. You’re not gonna believe it. This is huge news.
Macie: *Nasally* Okay… Hold on. Let me get the remote and turn on the T.V. It’s kinda late at night to be focused on T.V… But there’s been a lot of sirens going off.
Macie T.: That’s why you should turn on the T.V and look at the reason as to why there are a lot of sirens going off.
A Minute later…
Macie: *Gasps* Oh no! It couldn’t be. That’s Leslie’s father. *Calling Joanna over fast* Joanna! Come quick.
Joanna: *Running over from the balcony* Macie, What’s wrong?
Macie: *Pointing slightly at the t.v* Look at the screen. It’s terrible.
Joanna: *Looking at the T.V* Oh… Man. Is that for real? Isn’t that… the father to that girl we saw with the group of girls? What was her name again? Leslie.
Macie T.: Hey Squirt… you watching?
Macie: Yeah… I am watching. It horrible. Do Leslie and her mother know?
Macie T.: No idea if they do. But certainly they must know by now.
Joanna: What’ll we do?
Macie: *Nasally* I can’t say, Joanna. It’s hard to tell what can be done for Leslie and her family.
Joanna: We’re gonna need to head on out… Forget sleep.
Roger: Easy on the analogy and intensity there, sis. It’s deep… But it isn’t like the world has dropped dead all on a switch.
Midnight: Maybe so… However, you might want to stop and consider something for a moment, Rog. It’s the end of the world for Leslie. Don’t you gather the impression that she’s a daddy’s girl. A pure Daddy’s girl. She shows the signs like a telegraph monologue. Classic imperative signs. She’s weepy. Signs:
- Whether it’s when you see someone weird at the grocery store or when your uncle does that dance at the family block party, you both have that code word to alert each other.
- He posts non-embarrassing things on your facebook wall. It’ll usually be memes and articles that would either have you thinking or dying of laughter.
- You have the best debates. Even if you both have different views on things like which football team should win the super bowl or whether or not you need more than two pairs of shoes, you don’t mind having a friendly argument or two on the way to pick up mom.
- The boyfriend talk he had with you…was short, simple, to the point, and most importantly, very wise. Because of your dad, you’re able to choose the right man for yourself.
- You always ask him for money. You know he’ll always have your back and he doesn’t mind spoiling you. Plus, he’ll give you a word of wisdom on how you could save your money.
- You both have an inside joke…that will always have you both laughing hysterically over the dinner table and no one else gets it, which is basically why it’s hilarious.
- You’re the first person he goes to…whenever he has to buy a gift for mom because he knows that you know her closet way better than he does. Also, because you’re a girl. That too.
- You don’t mind hanging out with him. You look forward to days where it’s just the two of you going to see a movie or going out for Cold Stone ice cream. And when you guys hang out…
- There’s never a dull moment…because he’s telling you hilarious stories about how Uncle Ben used to be a pimp and you literally can’t deal.
- He never embarrasses you. You never get nervous whenever your dad comes around your friends because even if they think he’s lame, it won’t affect how much you love him.
- But if he does…then he’ll do it in a way that will make you laugh and love him even more.
- He’ll always talk about how you were his little baby…and how just yesterday, he had you on the palm of his hand and now you’re all grown up. You’ll roll your eyes, but secretly, you can’t get over the twinkle in his eye every time he says it.
- He calls you by your nickname. Always. Even when you guys are at formal events and you’re not mordified about it. Well…not all the time.
- His hugs…will always make you feel warm and safe.
- When you guys fight…there’s always a lesson in it for the both of you because he does listen to you.
- He knows you could take care of yourself. He doesn’t have to worry about you facing this tough world because he knows how strong you are and that you could handle yourself. However, when you do break under pressure, his shoulder is always there for you to cry on because…
- You’ll always be his princess… and that’s all there is to it.
Blossom: Those signs are so cheesy.
Roger: And i am a member to a band.
Leslie: Empire of the Hearts. A Band that i happen to sponsor. *Clearing her throat* The band is in need of creating songs of their own. Clearly… You boys… and Zoey have the drive and determination… plus the talent which lasts a decade and more… So… there shouldn’t be any reason as to why you guys can’t form up some songs of your very own.
Roger: We’ve been trying. But we are in need of some inspiration and there’s no source of it anywhere.
Blossom: The Music is inside you… You just have to find how best to draw it out and get it to bust on through.
Leslie: It’s my father. He’s dead. He died tonight… Happened about an hour ago.
Macie: How did it happen though? Wasn’t he… in good health?
Leslie: That’s something i’d be wanting to know. He was healthy for a long time then one morning… The morning of the same day that the Empire of the Sun Concert was supposed to take place. He ends up with a stroke. A Moderate Heart attack which was bad enough to put him in the hospital and he was in need of a Triple Bypass. He died tonight. Due to Complications of the Triple Bypass.
Zoey: *Answering the door* Hello?
???: *Handing over a Paper* Here. I don’t know what i’m doing here as i shouldn’t be here. Not without being invited and it’s awkward. But i’ve come from the Adoption Agency and they said that i was to come to you.
Zoey: *Curious and at a loss* Who’re you?
???: I’m your son. The name’s Casper. Casper Renfield Price. But after tonight… I am gonna be Known as Casper Renfield Rhapsody… Your Son.
Paige: *Looking at the two girls* This isn’t a joke… is it? You’re from the Adoption agency and were granted to my sons? You two are awarded to my sons?
Rikki: Yes. We are. I’m Rikki Partridge… But by tomorrow will be Rikki Rhapsody. Clint’s gonna be my father.
Mara: And I’m Mara. Mara Stanhope. But by tomorrow… I’m gonna be Mara Rhapsody. I’m Theodore’s Daughter.
Paige: How old are you?
Rikki: I’m 11.
Paige: I’m calling the Adoption Agency tomorrow. Something very fishy is going on. I’m gonna get to the bottom of this.
Dinah: *In disbelief* What the hell is going on here? My daughters are not in any condition to be mothers. They can’t be… Not now… They’re only 15 years old for cryin’ out loud.
???: I’m Tina. Tina Lesley Simpson. But now i’m the daughter to a Janie Rhapsody. I was awarded to her.
???: I’m Arnold Willard. But Now am Arnold Rhapsody Come tomorrow… which will be in about 10 Minutes. I am awarded to an Alexandra Rhapsody. I am to be her Son.
???: *Smiles* I’m Brooke Appleton. I was chosen by the Adoption agency and sent here. I was awarded by them to be the daughter of Charlene Rhapsody. The Adoption Agency as you might have heard the news going around for the span of a couple months that there’s been a lot of Adoptions going around. The Adoption Agency has been over run with so many Kids… Boys and girls alike and not enough room to hold all the kids that kept pouring in. A lot of kids came from broken homes or Abusive families. The Abused kids are ones with the most problems… Not us though. We’re normal and from Boken homes with parents who couldn’t provide for us and disowned us. Not by choice. But all due to not having any other way out.
Aquamarine: *Impressed* Who are you? You lost? You seem like a sweet young man. Coming here like this. How did you find this house?
???: I’m Blake Storm. But previously was Blake Jones. I am not exactly lost. I was sent here by the Adoption agency. They said for me to find a single parent. One who might be seeing someone and that was where they figured it to be… well… You. So, i came to you. They have granted for you… to have me. As your first kid. Adopted of course, yes… But your first… Son.
Aquamarine: *Touched and in delight* Well… I’ll be. I am so touched… Blessed. Come over and grab a seat, Hon. I’ll fix you up some hot Cocoa. It’s a rather chilly night. You walking through town in the cold like you were… You’re so lucky to not be ridden with the flu and sniffles. *Feeling Jumbled and flustered* Oh dear… *Heading off to the kitchen*
Blake: *Walking over to the living room couch and Sighs* This is a nice place. Whoever did this house… had a lot of creative inspiration going om inside them. *Impressed*
Curtis: *Looking at the Surprising new faces* So let me see if i am understanding you two good… You two… Are sent by the Adoption Agency… And you were also granted to my Daughter Blossom. And my daughter in law Leslie. Plus also one of you are granted to my son Perry…
???: That’s what we’re telling you. It’s as the papers will tell you. We’re granted to be daughters to Blossom and Leslie… And Perry. Haroki is Perry’s Daughter. Me and Jewel are Blossom’s and Leslie’s.
???: Royale happens to be a little of a troubled teen. So… Don’t be shocked when you see her doing things that are harmful to her health. She’s troubled. So… it kinda comes with the territory. Although… She’s been trying to clean up her act.
???: *Speaking Japanese*…
Curtis: Who are you girls?
???: I’m Royale Juniper… now… Royale Burke.
???: I’m Jewel Smoky Rhapsody. Formerly known as Jewel Smoky Tinsworthy.
Francine: Aunt Zoey, Where’s my father, Charlie?
Zoey: How do i know? The only place that he’d be at this time of night as he’s in college… is Met U. Metropolis University. I’ll see on calling him tomorrow. There’s nothing that i can do now. By this time now… He’s usually asleep.
Casper: Mom, Come on. She’s looking for her father. I wouldn’t blame her. She’s found you. And now knowing that Charlie’s your Brother and her father… He’s like my Uncle. Your dad’s my grandpa. It’s just natural for her to want to get in touch with her father.
Zoey: *Sighs* I know. But… Honestly… there’s nothing that i can do. I can’t do anything about getting a hold of him… till Morning. I already know that he’s gonna have a rough time swallowing the pill of being a father. Just out of nowhere. I am. But i am gonna make it all work.
Casper: You’re a high school student?
Casper: Interesting. I’m a middle school Student.
Francine: As am I.
Zoey: Nice. Well… I don’t really have a place for you to sleep for the night, Francine. Casper, Son… I would like to put in with me in my room for the night. But i don’t know quite how my father would take it. Nor would my boyfriend… take well to it. So… I could put you in my Brother’s old room.
But that was when she started to think twice about it and suddenly came up with something else…
Zoey: Actually… Casper, You can sleep in my bed tonight. I got a rocking massage chair that i can sleep in. I usually sleep in that when i’m up late and working on practicing playing my Guitar. Francine, You can sleep in my brother’s room. Charlie… who is your father now will be called tomorrow and informed about the fact that he now has a daughter.
Christina: *Smiles* Hey there. I’m Christina. Christina Black. Formerly known as Christina Marvel. I am a transgender boy/Girl. But i am to be the Child to Serena. I was sent by the Adoption agency. I also would like to say that it’d be a pleasure to be your grandchild. And the operations and procedures which helped me turn to this… They’re covered by the adoption agency. For the next 7 years… Courtesy of the state.
Dinah: Christina, I am touched to know you’re gonna be my daughter’s child and my grandchild. I just wish that i knew where it is that i can put you for the night. We don’t have a spot left. Actually… How would you like to use the den for tonight? it isn’t much… But it’s better than the floor. I’ll send a call over to Serena tomorrow. See on getting her over here so that you two can meet.
Wakka: *Slapping his head in disbelief* What in Metropolis’s name is going on here? I can’t believe this. I’m being told by you two that i am granted two kids.
Wakka: Let me guess now that you two are now… My kids. My sons?
Harry: We sure are. You’re now a father. Family stands forever. We know that it’s not something you’d normally hear as you might be one who’s a happy Vintage bachelor. It’s okay. We’re only 12 and can already tell what type of individual a person really is. And you’re like a happy Vintage Bachelor. My name is Harry. Harry Howard Gibson Now Harry Howard Aurochs. This guy beside me is Magnus Paul Roberts-Aurochs. He’s kinda like my Twin Brother. We’re Twins.
Wakka: Come give your father a bear hug, ya!
T.V: *Broadcasting* “The man has very strong control over a country,” Trump said of Russian President Vladimir Putin, pointing out he has an 82 percent approval rating. “It’s a very different system and I don’t happen to like the system, but certainly, in that system, he’s been a leader, far more than our president has been a leader.”
Heinz: *Seeing the news reports on T.V about the candidate’s campaign trail* Holy Toledo! Somebody had fun. That guy… he’s belittling Obama. Wait… I thought that Trump was already the president.
Ilsa: No. He’s not… but his influence is spreading far. He’s far more intimidating. than the other one. Earlier this year… That beastly man tried to push the nail into that Woman Candidate and accuse her of pulling the Woman card angle.
Ilsa: it’s unfortunate to know this… But Clinton was reported to have said on national T.V… “if fighting for women’s health care and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the woman card, then deal me in.” After Trump said this: “She’s playing that card like I’ve never seen anyone play it before,” Trump said of Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton. “All I’m doing is bringing out the obvious, that without the woman card, Hillary would not even be a viable person to even run for a city council position.”
Dinah: *Looking at Lorelai* What the heck is going on? Is Sookie on a one man crusade?
Lorelai: If only you knew how she got normally when things like this happen.
Dinah: Why do you say that? You saying that it’s worse than this?
Lorelai: No. It isn’t worse… But it isn’t what you’d paint as a warming moment either.
Dinah: Hmm. Interesting. One question though. Is she always this passionate over the food she happens to create?
Lorelai: It’s a craft.
Dinah: A Craft of Psychosomatic repose maybe. But… I guess that it’s like the saying goes. One person’s Psycho is another person’s rising Genius. I actually find her rather amusing and creative. Seriously. Maybe the partial zany insanity that she lets out… pulls out a positive result.
Lorelai: It helps on passing the time.
Dinah: No foolin’.
Lorelai: *Curious* question though… You’re usually at the Football stadium during this time of the day. Shouldn’t you be there now?
Dinah: I should be. However… the Stadium’s closed today. It’s gonna be closed for a week. Apparently the University’s got some Rally going on for a presidential candidate. Didn’t say or specify on which one it was gonna be. I’m banking on the woman. Hillary. But eh… i could be getting my hopes up on the idea.
Lorelai: Don’t envy that. Some of the patrons were referring to there being some convention. Being held at a Football Stadium. I guess that Rally was what they were speaking about.
Dinah: Must be.
Lorelai: Michel was gonna vote for the Male Presidential candidate. But i made him submit to voting for the woman Candidate.
Dinah: Ah… You’re already getting into the whole Election bit.
Lorelai: Never too early. Anything to keep a megalomaniac from getting into office.
Dinah: You took the words… right outta my mouth, Lorelai. No lie. because… i happen to feel the very same way. Odd to know that… isn’t it?
Lorelai: Odder than a pair of circus midgets.
Carl: *Looking at the T.V* I must say that i seem to find a great deal of concern about the stuff going on… On T.V.
Leslie: Why’s that?
Blossom: *Curious* Something a miss?
Carl: The Current elections that are coming up. The Presidential races.
Leslie: So we’ve heard. Who’s all running?
Zoey: Donald J. Trump… the former host of the show called: “The Apprentice” and CEO of Trump University. Has multiple Trump Towers. And Hillary Rodham Clinton. The Secretary of State and founder of the Clinton Foundation.
Michelangelo: That’s right. But, Zoey… how did you know about that?
Sora: We didn’t figure you to follow up on this election. What gives?
Zoey: It’s called… I read the Newspaper and just catch good stories. That’s what gives and i already can tell you that from how the stories are being told… We might have a big mess coming up in the not so distant future.
Sora: Do you think that it’ll start a time of depression for us all? Trump isn’t a nice person. He’s gonna destroy everything that this country was built upon.
Carly: Tell that to the White Supremacists that are backing him. There’s gonna be a whole lot of race wars. All because of Trump and this whole campaign.
Michelangelo: It sounds really bad when you think about it.
Carl: If Trump becomes president… Something’s gonna happen to this city.
Leslie: Like what?
Carl: It could put a strain on the Stadium. You might have to make sections according to race. Color and Culture. Racism is gonna spread ferociously if Trump gets elected.
Serena: *Scoffs* Can you believe this guy on T.V? What the fuck is this guy trying to pull? Everyone who’s with a conscious mind knows that he’s a complete egotistical lying hypocritical bigot. He’s all shit. And these people there in the crowd… Are eating it up. Literally eating it up like it’s Heroin to them. Caffeine to their caffeinated dependency.
Carly Black: Serena, i don’t like the guy either. But talking like that is gonna land us right into federal custody. Besides. There are… in case you didn’t notice. A lot of people who are with racial thoughts but have been icing those thoughts down and condoning anyone who weren’t “White” As they were groomed to feel one way. That America was to be about the freedom and a country of Love. Respect. Compassion and acceptance. Tolerance as well. They’re acting on their Bigotry thoughts and feelings. Their racial beliefs are being coaxed because of how the guy on T.V speaks and how he presents himself.
Serena: That’s total crap, Carly. Total and undeniable crap. That guy is a bastard. A complete Racist. Anyone who would feel any sympathy or pity towards him… They’re just as empty minded and demented as that Son of a bitch Trump.
Carly: Serena, I agree. I feel kinda the same way. However… no matter how we feel… We have to be with some form of civility. We don’t have to like him or accept him. But… if he gets in. We will have to respect him. He’ll be our new (C.I.C) Commander-In-Chief.
Rita: The presidential race is getting to be close to the last. The people out there are violent. Alot are going for the Male Presidential Candidate.
Erica H.: Too bad that Bernie Sanders didn’t make it through the Primaries and stopped. It’s as if the end for him came and he couldn’t do it anymore. He then backs Clinton. Which is a plus. They both think that this guy on T.V spewing his lies is just full of himself. Just full of deceptive lies. All he utters out are lies upon lies upon lies.
Rita: I agree. However if he wins it… What’re we gonna do for our university years? Things could change and we might not be able to afford it anymore.
Erica H.: Trump’s gonna ruin us all. That evil man is full of racial beliefs. Bigotry and such hate. Terrible.
Rita: Plus… he’s discriminatory against LGBT’s. Their rights could go all out the window.
Erica H.: It’s sad. This place will feel like a home of complete division and hate.
Rita: We’ve got to do what we can to guarantee that there is Love within this Dorm. We can’t allow for that Evil Man’s hate to win. Love is stronger than anything that; that evil rotten man on T.V can spread out.
Erica H.: I think that i can get my mom to start with getting people to counter the hate that this evil man on T.V is spewing out. I’ll call her tonight. We’re gonna string up that hateful bandit and leave him hanging upside down. Spanking him like a Pinata! Better yet… Why don’t i just lure him somewhere…where he’s alone and then Hog tie the varmint and just call it a day? It’s better than just letting someone like him walk the same streets as we do.
Rita: Anger and annoyance has nothing on you.
Erica H.: Maybe not… But i am not gonna just sit idly by and play happy citizen while the guy calls whatever shots he chooses.
Rita: None of us are bound to do it. Although… The others… They might be ones to suffer for it. Theodore is against Trump. He’s already posting on his Twitter a Anti-Trump Movement Rally. Hopefully getting people to turn right against Trump. Turning on him and go right for the other one…
Dan: *Walking out of the Dorm room; With Charlie and heading to the Lounge* I am not about to sit and listen to the garbage that the man on T.V is saying. I am not listening to that man. I don’t see how anyone could just withstand the sound of that guy’s voice. Not that it’s bad… However… He’s making promises… But problem is… Will he keep them?
Charlie: I don’t know, Dan. *While walking over to the lounge* I can’t say as most of us… feel as though he’s the beginning of the end. For the whole country. He’s gonna cut Social security. Or the Floozies that he nominates as a member of his administration… will. A couple of them had tried to get it cut for years. But couldn’t. And those who want it gone… will do anything to see it happen. That means… going for any candidate and backing any one who’ll be liable to make it happen.
Dan: True. But… We don’t know that. He could be true to his word. As it is… he’s not in yet. He hasn’t been elected.
Charlie: Not yet. Of course… I’m worried for my sister Zoey. She’s into Music. Becoming a famous singer. A troubadour and with the elections coming up… I am not quite sure if the current path she’s wanting to take is gonna be able to remain a reality.
Dan: I wish i could say… But the matter is just as we suggest it would be. A Mess. I mean… Let’s stop and think about the guy Trump. What do we really know about him? Or how his world is like. The world he comes from. What if he is the one who’ll actually save us… this country? What then? I’m not saying that he’s the best choice. I’m not saying that he’s not. But…
Charlie: You must look at all sides to the picture. Right?
Dan: That’s right. Alot of people might say… “Trump’s gonna be the end to us. We must make sure that he never gets to the White house.” Others might say… “Trump is the type of person who will be the one who’ll save us. The Democrats have had their time and now things are worse than ever. Those Liberals are gonna be dealing with the Republican’s way now.” Some of us… Might be secretive and go for Trump… against the other’s will. Some of us might go for Hillary against the other’s will.
Charlie: The general consensus is undecided. *Sighs* i would not vote for any of them. I’d be all for going along and voting for the Senator from Vermont. Bernie Saunders.
Dan: We should ask the people. What they want. Some of the people happen to place great blame on Obama for what’s been going on in the country. He’s dragged this country down… Even though he claims that the Unemployment rate is down. The only good thing he had done… Is help us all sack and toss the Terrorist Mastermind Bin Laden. That’s the one thing that he had done.
Charlie: What about the things that Hillary done? She’s had those secret Emails. They had Classified Emails. Top Secret letters. None of which has been proven.
Dan: I guess. But alot are concerned about Trump’s Nuclear talk. There was an article done up by the New York Daily News a few months ago. Speaking on the Nuclear issue. Part of the article read: “Trump’s policies would reverse decades of bipartisan consensus. Even letting friendly nations go nuclear would make it harder for us to prevent rogue regimes from doing the same. Trump would risk unleashing an arms race in places like East Asia and the Middle East, expand the amount of nuclear material in the world and increase the chance of terrorists acquiring some of that material and using it to attack the U.S. As I have said, that’s the single gravest national security threat we face.” There have been people talking about it in fear.
Charlie: It’s a scary world. We got either a Megalomaniac who’s all for treating this country like a Business. Or Hillary. The one who’s being put under the microscope because of those Emails.
Johnny: *Voice-over* Oct. 15th, 2046. Late afternoon… I was on the road again and had just only barely crested the outskirts of Metropolis as i was on the road again. I knew that it was a rather rash move to take all just for the fact which i either had to make a choice and Leave while i could to avoid being totally exposed as a Gender confused life form or stay and get railroaded as a girl pretending to be a boy. I however didn’t think to realize that there couldn’t be anything worse than that… Well… Other than the fact that i had to leave without saying goodbye to the one person who befriended me and actually loved me. Not pity me and baby me. No. This girl… Carly… She was sweet and condescending and very hospitable. Acceptive. Which in one side… made her a wonderful person to me… but slammed her socially against the crew or posse of friends she had. Even with her sister and cousins.
I didn’t seem to think bad or poorly of her family. They were only being very protective of her and it wasn’t as if they revered me… they just didn’t seem to know how to figure me out. The Rhapsody clan… as they were… couldn’t decipher me. As either a troubled person… or a disturbed individual. There wasn’t any clue they had in understanding what i really was. Carly knew… but she never told them. She didn’t say anything about me and my problem as a dire promise that she’d made to me. She swore that she wouldn’t become the iceberg to the titanic. In other words… Sink me. She risked alot. A whole lot and that is by far… outstanding for one to just risk everything… all for the very sake of that one thing… Whether it be a person, place or thing.
That night was the first night of my being on the road since leaving Metropolis and i only looked behind me for a second to see the metropolis skyline which was getting smaller with every passing mile i got away from the city. By that time, i knew that it was official…
I only got a little further that night before noticing how late it was. So, i had to do the logical thing and find a spot to camp out for the night. Sure… it was a tad cold out. Maybe even windy. But it wasn’t all that bad. I rather enjoyed the open road. The scenic atmosphere. It was lonesome and i was longing for someone to talk to… although the only downside to all of it was that i was on the open road. On the open plains and the nearest town wasn’t gonna be for at least 20-25 Miles. So, there wasn’t anything i could have done. Not right then apparently.
I found a pleasing spot only a mile ahead from where i was which would be suitable for me to camp for the night. I pulled over to the side and got off the motorcycle, turned it off and started setting up camp for the night. There were a few branches and twigs to use and pile up… sufficial to build an adequate campfire. Just to keep warm throughout the night. It was a cold night and warmth was gonna be needed. It wasn’t the best thing although it was better than nothing. So it had to do. I was not close to any nearing town or city… and i was by that time 30 miles away from Metropolis. 30 long miles. I couldn’t help but think to myself at that moment: “Well… Johnny, I hope that this is what you want. Because now that you’ve ran off and didn’t go have that one shot to further the process of becoming a Complete Male… You’re gonna only see it being a matter of time before the process starts to reverse and you start undergoing the changes. This better be what you want. Once you go through with this… there is no going back.” But i had already made my mind. It was the hardest choice ever that i’d have to make. I knew that i was hurting the one girl i cared about more than anything. The thought of it got me feeling remorse and i didn’t have a phone. Nor a Cellphone. So i couldn’t call her. The only thing that i could do now was pray for her. That was all i could do.
Joanna: *Waking up and seeing the Preteen girl* You’re confused… i’d think. because i happen to be a girl. *slowly getting up* Oh man… What the heck happened? I feel like i was hit by a train. or at least a semi.
*Standing* I don’t seem to know who you are… but i will state that i’m thankful that someone came to my aide here. You don’t even know me. But yet… you still came to my aide. We never met. But you’re here now. Standing before me. Why? Where did you come from anyway?
Joanna: I don’t know who you are… or what your name is. But, i can’t just leave you here stranded without a way back. I’m pretty sure that your parents’re gonna be pissed or if nothing more worried sick if you don’t return back to where your place of residence is. So, why not come along with me. We’ll get through this bull together.
Girl: Okay. *Sneezing* Sorry. Clogged nose.
Joanna: It’s okay. You probably just caught some dust particles and it went up your nose. Probably an allergen or something. You’ll be okay. Come on. We gotta find ourselves a means of transportation. I gotta get back to Metropolis where some remnant form of my life can be found or for a chance to maybe create a new one… if by chance. I would suppose that you’ll need a better life as well. Least till you get back with your folks.
Girl: If that might be likely. But i wouldn’t count on it as they live in connecticut. I’m several states away from where they are.
Joanna: I’ll tell you what. Till that day comes where you can be reunited with your parents or by chance that they happen to come to Metropolis and likely move to there and live in Metropolis… You’ll be my right hand wheel. You just stick by me. I’ll protect you. I might be a girl… but don’t think that i can’t produce some kind of fight if i gotta. *Curious* What are you supposed to be anyway? A Band Geek? Just curious.
Girl: I guess so. I am in the local school band, you know. I am one of the band members in the school band.
Joanna: Don’t tell me. Sheltered Shrubs, right?
Girl: Yeah. Although it’s Lucky High School. But how did you know?
Joanna: Lucky guess, i’d suppose. *grins*
Joanna: *Driving the Motor Scooter* What’s your name? I can’t keep calling you Preteen girl. Unless you happen to sort of like that.
Girl: *Nasally* Macie. Macie Lightfoot.
Joanna: Hmm… That’s a unique name if i’ve ever heard one in my life. That’s a nice name. Well… It’s nice to meet you, Macie. I’m Joanna. Joanna M. Barlow. M for Matilda.
Macie: Joanna… That’s a good name.
Joanna: Thanks, Macie. Good knowing that you think so. I like the name too…but sometimes i wonder if it would be possible to have my name changed. Well… at least my first name. Of course… It’s not bad. I had this name since i was born and it was the name i was given. But… What about you? *Curious* Do you even like your name even if it is a rather nice one for all intents and purposes?
Macie: I don’t know. *Nasally* I don’t think that i’ve really thought about it like that before. I kinda wonder about the name. First and last name… but no middle. My parents never told me what it was and it was never put on any of the legal forms nor was it ever discussed.
Joanna: Perhaps we can come up with one. Everyone’s entitled to having a middle name. I’m thinking of something that fits what you are like. The core. Something that highlights you. *Thinking* How about Melody. Macie Melody Lightfoot. It rather is fitting.
Joanna: Hey there. You’re O’aka. right?
O’aka: Aye’ Lass. That be me. *Turning to see Joanna* Although, this swift Merchant finds unfamiliar seeing you. Who might ye be?
Joanna: My name’s Joanna Barlow. 15. I used to be Johnny Barlow. But that was when i was in the appearance of a male. I’m a Transgender. But slowly coming out of that and am back to what i biologically was born as. A girl.
O’aka: Ah! So you’re the one i saw with one of the Clan members of the Rhapsody Dynasty. You were… with Carly, weren’t you?
Joanna: *Nods* Yeah. I was. Why? You know them?
O’aka: Know’em? You kidding? Of course i know of them, lass. I know about them as i met them many times. They kept crossin’ the path of good ole’ O’aka numerous times. Several times while they were in a distant place. Known as Spira. I came from there originally. Then when they departed and left for this city… i then hitched me a ride and came here too. I barely started this business early on this year. This outlet is all mine. Earned and worked fer’.
Joanna: Wow… So, They’re like really close to you, huh?
O’aka: That they be, Young lady. That they be. I happen to think very fondly of them. Doing what they do. Out fighting the good fight. It makes a merchant such as I proud,
Joanna: *Looking at Macie* Macie, I don’t really want to tell you this as this isn’t something friends tell one another. At least when the friend is rather new and a tad behind on things. You’re like a friend to me. So… i’m gonna tell you something that i will beg and pray that it goes no further than you and I. You can’t even spill it to the crew back home where your familiarity resides. Not a word of it goes to Ginger and Dodie. I know that they’re your friends and BFF’s always confide. It’s like credo. But this is something you can not tell them. It’s taboo.
Macie: *Gasps with shock* Sweet mother of Dramatization… Calm down, Joanna. I won’t tell them anything about it.
Joanna: Frank, Can we talk? I need some help for Macie.
Frank: What kind of help might you need?
Joanna: We need to get Macie into a school here. She’s got no school here and she’s from Connecticutt originally. But she’s many miles away from the state she’s from. She doen’t have a way to get there and there’s no way for her to get there.
Frank: *Sitting down and with the papers; the faxes and documents* I made the calls. It took a bit of tape to cut through in order to ensure that it would happen. But I made a call to the School and Explained to them the situation. It’s been set for Macie to attend school tomorrow for her first day.
Joanna: This school is getting to be a little weird. First the halls are congested… Then within just a minute or two… mostly clear? What gives? Do i happen to have some type of aroma that wards people off?
Macie: *Shrugs* I don’t know. It’s a new one on me. This is the first time i’ve been here. So… i am lost as you are.
Carly: *From a few steps behind* It’s not all that bad. Just rather a steadily sped up pace. This school is usually run as a clock. A constant flow. I should know… I’ve seen it act as such. Not that it’s anything to stress over. *Looking at the girls*
Joanna: *Pauses* Is that a fact? Or is that how someone such as you… happen to see it?
Carly: I wouldn’t know… But that’s how it is around here. My older cousins… Sapphire, Serena, Raven, Annie, Clint, Daria… and the rest… They can attest to it. They saw the same thing while they attended here. Now the buck is passed on to me. Courtesy of them.
Joanna: That’s something that a fellow friend named Carly would say.
Carly: And she would usually say that to Johnny. If he were still here. Which i happen to feel or sense that he could perhaps still be here. Not that i can prove it for sure.
Joanna: And he technically is here… Although… he’s different than what you remember. Like now. He’s in the appearance of a girl. The girl… is right before your very eyes, Carly.
Carly: Johnny?! *Gasps* Is that you, Johnny?
Joanna: Carly… *Chuckles* *Looking at Carly* You are sounding like you’re really charismatic. I know that you are pleased to see me back… But i am not who you think. *Smiles and Chuckles* I’m Joanna. Not Johnny. Silly.
Carly: Maybe… but some of the things that are coming from you… seem like him.
Joanna: *Laughing a little* It’s good to know that you haven’t changed a bit.
???: *Walking into the restroom* What’s the problem with you, Squirt? You having the first day blues?
Joanna: If only that were the case… But that’s part of the issue. *Looking at the Teen girl coming in* Who’re you?
???: I’m Macie Terrace. Band Geek and Proud of it. Guitar player and a Goth. And just so you can lower the high alert gaze… I’m a friend of hers. She’s got a lot of worries goin’ up her back hind end. She Hyperventilates alot. She had a spell in English class and i kinda had to laugh because i never in my life met anyone who hyperventilated as much as she does.
Carly: *Waiting* I don’t care if i am nuts. I don’t care if Johnny’s gone. I don’t even care if it were said a million times… I truly feel that Johnny’s there. Joanna is here… but so is Johnny. The sense and feeling… The spirit is here… I know it is here. I can feel it. I’m not crazy. I’m not.
Asia: These two beings are not here at once, Carly. You need to quit the facade of believing where this Johnny and Joanna are both here. I know that you loved him. Your actions and reactions… are apparent signs that you and he had this thing for one another. But… Enough’s enough. Johnny Barlow… is dead. He is gone. There is no more of him. If this Joanna Barlow is around and she and he were one and the same… That means that when Joanna arrived…. Johnny left the picture. Johnny is Joanna. Johnny Barlow is gone for good. All there is… is Joanna. She’s all there is from now on.
Carly: how can you say that? He’s here… I know that he is here. He’s not dead. He isn’t dead. Besides that if he wasn’t here… then… why do i feel as if he is close by? If he wasn’t here… i wouldn’t be feeling him close by… or near. Would I?
Asia: No… you wouldn’t.
Zoey: *Looking to see another girl next to Joanna* Who is that?
Joanna: Who? *Looking at Macie* Her… She’s a friend of mine. I met her while on the road and she’s originally from Connecticut.
Zoey: That’s the east coast… isn’t it?
Macie: I’m Macie Lightfoot. *Nasally* It’s nice to meet you, Zoey.
Zoey: Nice to meet you too, Macie. How do you like the school here so far?
Macie: It’s scary. It’s so different than the school i used to attend.
Zoey: I heard about it being your first day here… that you’d be in need of help and guidance. You really shouldn’t worry much about it… You got us
Ridge: Yeah. *Smiles* A beautiful girl like you… shouldn’t worry about how you’ll make it here. I was the one who flirted with you. I remember seeing you in the English class… I just didn’t know that it was… you.
Joanna: Who’re you?
Ridge: Oh… me? I’m who they consider a Singing Prodigy… The name’s Ridge Mercer. No Relation to Tess Mercer.
Macie: *Nasally; Voice-over* And now Part 3-3 of the after wake Procession… Of the Adventures of the Rhapsody Girls Z!..
Nov. 6th 2046
The older fighters were in their dorm rooms and watching the Presidential Elections. It was getting to the breaking point of tolerance and some of the fighters were itching to pop with either jubilation or outrage depending on the outcome of the Election and of who won it.
T.V: *Broadcasting* The results are in and the Polls have been counted… It’s official. Donald J. Trump has won the 2046 Presidential election. Donald J. Trump is the new Presidential Elect.
#250: Serena Rhapsody, Carly Black and Jacklyn O’Nestle
Serena: *Exploding* WHAT THE FUCK! SON OF A BITCH! That damn bastard Trump has won. He’s now in the presidency. The President. *Sitting down in a deadpan manner and steamed* Well… It’s official. It’s official now. We’re totally screwed. Trump’s now our (C.I.C) Commander in chief.
Carly Black: Serena… Don’t worry. There are Rallies going on in this city. Not to forget that there is something you may need to know. There’s a Trump tower in this city. It’s disguised as just a usual skyscraper. But you know the building that’s just diagonal from the Radio station MRHAP?
Serena: No. Not really. Why?
Carly Black: Well… i don’t want to get you going into a worked up angry fury… but… That’s Trump tower. It’s Just made to look like something else.
Serena: What?! Are you fucking kidding me? That’s it. I’m gonna find a rally and stage a protest against the reality of Trump being president. That sack of slime is not gonna be getting any peace during his time here… the bastard can just count on that.
Carly: You’re really in hot anger over him… aren’t you?
Serena: Yeah. And the fact is that tomorrow… we finally get to spend some time with our Adopted Daughter. That’s right now the only cheer we have up to this moment.
Carly Black: You mean our Transgender daughter. One who is biologically a boy but wants to be a girl… straight out girl. The Kid is like what… 12?
Serena: Yeah. She is. I think that it’d be best if we at least gave a call over to my mother now. Just to maybe see how our daughter’s doing.
Carly Black: Good idea. But, Serena?
Carly Black: Ice the Rage going on over Trump. I know you’re pissed off. I am too. I would be just itching and oozing for a chance to break away and just Tear at the Orange-faced Prick on a licorice stick Trump. But… for now… We need to think about Christina. She’s gonna need gentle tone. The anger and rage is only gonna traumatize her and scare her.
Serena: You’re right. We need to maintain low tones.
#349: Spencer and Rikku/ ???
Spencer: *Shaking his head* Oh my god… Rikku, What’re we gonna do now? Trump’s now president. He’s the elect.
Rikku: Spencer… It’s not over yet. It’s just only started. Plus… he’s only the elect. Not officially president yet. He’s got to be sworn in. That will not happen till 9AM on January 20th 2047. We still have time.
Spencer: I know, Rikku… But it isn’t that cut and dry. That guy is a tyrannical liar. You might be right that we all have time before then… But he’s already got things in order. He has made a lot of campaign promises… Although… come on… You really think that he’s gonna just stand and adhere to all promises that were made? He is a complete liar and is a known chauvinistic pig. A Megalomaniac and a possible Pedophile.
Rikku: I think that i am well aware of that. I might not quite get what’s going on in this reality a time or two…But i have done my share of reading and know enough to realize that Donald Trump isn’t a good person… Not like those so called supporters are insisting that he is. I am sure that we can get our voices heard. It’s not too impossible. If you want to go out there and protest. We will. *Looking at the T.V*
Spencer: Thank you, Rikku. I knew that i could always count on you. *Kissing Rikku on the lips* Let’s get one put together. We’ll start on getting one together… first thing tomorrow.
Rikku: *Kissing Spencer back on the lips* Got it.
#305: Rita Massey and Erica Harper.
Trump: *On T.V* I just received a call from Secretary Clinton. She congratulated us on our victory and I congratulated her and her family on a very, very hard-fought campaign.
Rita: *Sighs* Theodore and his family are gonna be in a sheer mess now. Trump is talking about the powers that be here…
Erica: Is that a lead for a problem? I would reckon that it is a heck of a mishap. What do you think’ll happen now?
Rita: I don’t know… I really don’t know. But from how it seems… He’s gonna seek to order that Theodore’s family disband from trying to steal the spotlight and the Thunder of the president. As if that’s possible. It’s as if he’s threatened by anything that doesn’t satisfy his desire and satisfaction.
Trump: *On T.V; Speaking upon all the people in the crowd* As President… i will swear that the powers that be… be neutralized and disbanded. This land has dealt with them long enough and are thankful for their courage and their perseverance. Their sacrifice and giving up their own normal lives to help those out there who were in dire need of a lift. I am no fan of the Clan who consider themselves a Dynasty. The Rhapsody Dynasty… whoever of them manage to catch this address… They must be assured that they have my deepest gratitude and respect.
Erica H.: What in all that’s sanctified and Horse whipped is going on here? Did that stinkin’ lyin’ treasonous snake-in-the-grass just give out his gratitude and respect to the Clan?
Rita: I think that he did. He really respects them and has gratitude for them. Even though he happened to mention of which he wasn’t a fan of them. That’s got to be some sort of appraisal.
Erica H.: That might be so… but it don’t mean anything to the ones who happen to feel such hate towards him. Serena hates him. As does a few of the others. But there’s a lot in this Dorm building who respect and follow him regardless.
Rita: There’s gonna be a lot of anger in the forecast. I can just guarantee it.
#201: Annie, Amy, Brenda Rhapsody and Patti Marlborough.
Annie: That guy on T.V has respect for us. But then says that we’re to be disbanded. Is that even a possibility?
Amy: I can’t say. But… *Groans* I just can’t believe that Trump’s gonna be our new president… come next year. Where the heck did we go wrong anyway? This is a literal nightmare. And it’s only night one. *Sighs; throwing herself backwards on to her bed* Ohhhh! what are we gonna do?
Brenda: Who exactly did we vote for again?
Patti: We voted for Hillary. That’s who we voted for. What do you think? Something tells me that it will only be a matter of time before that man who’s won office sets his eyes on us all and give an intent on blatantly attacking us.
Annie: I wouldn’t doubt that one for a minute. Not at all.
Amy: Although you can not deny that Serena’s raising a shit fest over the Election winner. None of us are thrilled. Nor are any of us pleased or satisfied.
Annie: Does it seem as though we voted for the other one and yet somehow someone’s likely to have tampered with our votes and made it to where it said that we’ve voted for Trump when really… we’d voted for Hillary?
Brenda: I wouldn’t doubt the probability of there being ballot tampering.
Amy: *Shaking her head* There’s gonna be a lot of protests going on. The streets are gonna be swamped and bombarded with angry city dwellers.
Patti: No way…
Annie: Just wait and see. You’ll see them sooner or later. It’s gonna happen as there’s a whole bunch of people… A whole mass of people in this country… And there’s likely a rather sizable amount of people… A mass crowd of people who…hate Trump so much that they’d rally against the reality of him being president. For all the good it’d do… But it don’t mean as if they won’t at least make the effort to try.
#320: Roxanne Harris and Lana Greens.
Roxanne was asleep and fearing for her daughter’s future. But Lana Greens was in the middle of studying. She didn’t pay much of any attention to the T.V. However… the outcome of the elections and who’d won… Deeply bugged her.
#330: Charlie Rhapsody, Dan Rhapsody and Chris Bentley.
Charlie: I have a daughter now. *Looking at the picture* Zoey keeps telling me about the fact that i now have a daughter and that it was all courtesy of the Adoption agency… But i really can’t believe it. Why me? Out of all the people to be just granted a kid… or whatever… Why was i one of the lucky picks? What’s so special about me?
Chris: You’re probably a lucky pick. It’s gotta be fate.
Dan: I technically already have a kid. With Roxanne. I’m not the biological father of course… But i’ve been more of a father to her kid than that bastard Harry Waller who’s neglecting his duties of father. He’s probably not even gonna bother to pay child support. *To Charlie* Charlie, You have a daughter. You should be very blessed to be with the gift of fatherhood. Whoever the girl is… You’ll be sure to love her. Did your sister tell you what her name was?
Charlie: I think so. I think that she said that the girl’s name was Francine Beau Janet Rhapsody. Or that’s what was put on the Adoption forms that the girl came with.
Dan: Sounds really innovative. What is exactly going on with the current swarm of adoption waves? Didn’t your sister call you and tell you about the fact that she too was now a parent? Was she the only one that got hit with being a parent?
Charlie: No. My sister was not the only one. Leslie and Blossom from what she told me also got hit with it. As did Janie, Alex and Charlene. Serena and Carly… Spencer and Rikku too. They too also have gotten hit by the Adoption swarm. I got to go and see her tomorrow. It’s gonna be one awkward but special meeting.
Chris: Good luck with that one.
#312: Clint and Theodore Rhapsody/???
Clint: *Getting things set for the next day* I got to go and see my daughter tomorrow. Kiyoko is gonna be very shocked knowing that i got hit with the Adoption agency. I got a kid now. Not exactly something i’m looking forward to as i don’t even have a job. How the heck am i gonna be able to support my now apparent adopted kid. *Looking at the picture of his Adopted daughter* Rikki. That’s a provocative name. I couldn’t have thought of anything more creative and different. But the adopted daughter is Now… Rikki Rhapsody.
Theodore: As to my now daughter. Adopted of course. I can’t begin to wonder if it’s a possible scam. The Agency to be going nuts with granting kids to whoever.
Clint: You could be right. Something about the whole thing does seem rather odd. Something about it all… feels off. Really off. I mean that if it was just something that was going on with the agency and they were just handing out grants to possible selections for the granting being able to raise a child. A grown child. I don’t believe that you’ll be needing to say anything more. Because if it’s about the idea of which the adoption agency’s gone off the rails of sanity… It’s a definite no contest… as they undoubtedly have.
Theodore: I got my daughter Mara. She’s gonna be looking extraordinarily jumpy with glee.
Patrick Leorne was a trump supporter and was listening to what was being said on T.V as the elections were wrapping up and throwing a celebration for the new president elect. He was thrilled and cheering for Trump. And it wasn’t sitting well for Clint and Theodore. They were getting rubbed the wrong way with the whole thing. But it wasn’t till their roommate started saying some things about Trump being president… was gonna finally put things right and set it where the republicans were gonna have their heyday. Gain control of things and put a stop of the democrats running the show. It was the one remark that caused Clint and Theodore to feel the itching crave for letting him have it. However as it was… there was now alot of tension going on. The people on the streets and throughout the city… the state and even country… The ones who voted against Trump… were all rallying up to protest. Lend out their voices. However by fighting amongst the Trump supporters was only gonna heat up the acquisition and the resolution that was set on for demanding justice. Even if it should prove as being futile. Certain members of the fighters were gonna unleash their fury against the verdict of there being a greedy wealthy Multi-billionaire in the Presidency…
The Next Morning…
Dinah: It’s so doggone frickin’ good seeing you girls. You college dwellers. It’s gotta be a rush being in college. *Sighs in reminisce* Just thinking back on the past… I remember my days in college. Had to juggle that with also seeing a group of the clan going against big bad red demon of hell. Those were good times… Good times. *Hugging her daughter and Daughter-in-law* Welcome home, Serena. You loving Sparky firecracker.
Serena: *Hugging her mother* Thanks mom. It’s only a visit though. I might move back in after college is all said and done with. Because… it’s probably best if i had. Carly and I are gonna be getting serious with our relationship and it’s gonna feel foreign getting into the next level if it’s not at home.
Carly Black: Serena’s got it all worked over. But… *Sighs* At least she’s not blowing up over the results of the Presidential elections. She was a loose cannon.
Dinah: Presidential elections? *Pauses* Oh my… That was yesterday… wasn’t it? I think that i voted for the female candidate. Lorelai has also voted for Hillary. She got Michel Gerard the concierge at the Metropolis Inn to vote for the female candidate. Why?
Carly Black: Trump won. He’s the new President. Right now President-Elect.
Dinah: WHAT?! *Groans in disbelief* Ohhhh… you’ve got to be kidding me. Please. Tell me… that you’re just bullshitting me and this is a joke. Trump’s now President?
Serena: No. It’s not a joke. Not in the least. He’s in the seat now. Or will be once he gets sworn in and the torch gets passed to him. What’s worse is that there’s a Trump Tower located in the city. It’s a building which happens to be disguised as something else. But it’s actually a Trump Tower.
Dinah: And i take it that from the tone of your voice… You’re going to be part of the protests that are gonna be formed to cry outrage over the imminent presidency of Trump… Aren’t you?
Carly Black: So will i? She and I are a pair.
Dinah: You sure are. *Smiles*…
Christina: *Coming out from the kitchen* Grandma, Aren’t we gonna make the Brownies?
Dinah: We’re gonna do it, Christina. However… There’s someone you should meet, sweetie.
Christina: Meet?! Who? *Looking to see two tall young adults* Who’re they?
Dinah: That one with the blonde hair… Is your mom. My daughter Serena. The one next to her… is her soul mate. They’re Lesbian. But it’s okay. Love is love. No matter what type it happens to be.
Serena: Hey Christina. You look really nice and sweet. I hear that you’re now my daughter… sent by the Adoption agency. You’re also… what exactly?
Dinah: Serena… it’s got all the details on the papers she came with. She’s a… *Sighs* … *Walking over to get the papers and bringing them over to Serena; having her read through the papers*
A Moment later…
Serena: *Looking at her special daughter* Okay… So, here it is… You’re a transgender. Biologically a boy… but are living as a girl. getting injections of some serum to help realign your insides and freeze the hormones and turn them into female… Then at a certain age… you’re gonna go for an operation to be turned into an official girl. But you are for all intents and purposes expected to be referred to as a girl. and treated like one none the less. Right?
Serena: Hmm… Well… now that’s where i have a issue. It’s a small one. But it’s one. How am i to see girl if you’re like a biological boy? Not that i won’t treat you like a girl if it’s for all intents and purposes. But since you’re a transgender. I’ll have to keep you close by. There are a lot of judgmental morons out there who’d utter a statement of intent to harm. There’s been cases like that before… such as one involving a girl named Josie Romero. But Biologically was a boy named Joey Romero. He wanted to become a girl and as soon as he did… his family received death threats which hurt the child who turned into a girl.
Carly Black: where did you hear about that, Serena?
Serena: It’s been on Youtube. There’s a video about it. illustrating her life. It’s sad and if our daughter is gonna be with the same sort of outcome… We’re gonna protect her. That means… Grandma is gonna have her home schooled for the next few years. Our daughter is not gonna go through that type of bullshit. From anyone. They fuck with our daughter, Carly. They’re gonna find out what a mistake they’ve made.
Dinah: Serena… Sweetie. During the day i work or am out with Lorelai and Sookie. I can’t just stay and home school her. Nor can i just leave her home alone all day. She needs to be in a school. Not that i would not mind homeschooling her. However if i am to do that… she’d have to come with me everywhere i went off to. So i can ensure that she’d be safe and with a careful sharp watch on her. As it is… not only is it your daughter that i need to cater to. There’s also Janie’s Daughter Tina, Alex’s Son Arnold and Charlene’s daughter Brooke.
Serena: Say what? Come again on that last part. Did you just say that they too have kids now?
Dinah: They do. They’re right now at school. Janie, Alex and Charlene are however at Chilton. Their kids are Metropolis High.
Serena: That’ll be a raspy surprise. I am sure that the kids will be having a swell time trying to keep the identity of their mother’s a down low secret.
Carly Black: The others probably have kids too… don’t they?
Dinah: From what i have heard from my sisters… your aunts… Yes they do. Clint and Theodore have a daughter each. Spencer and Rikku also have one. Curtis also called and informed that even Blossom and Leslie have one as well. Actually two. Curtis’s son Perry has a daughter too. Haroki. Zeke’s son has a daughter named Francine. Zoey has a son named Casper. Aunt Aquamarine… has an adopted son named Blake.
Carly Black: Adoptions going out like insane… huh?
Dinah: *Choked up in a chuckling tone* Oh.. You… Carly… Serena. You have no idea. You can take that from your mother here… There are things that have gone on… that you’ve no idea as to how much has taken place.
Metropolis High school…
Joanna: *Looking at Carly* I didn’t think you’d see the situation in that way.
Carly: Joanna. I do feel that way. I can’t understand why i believe that there might still be remnants of Johnny left inside you. I know you told me… Multiple times and i want to believe it. I want to be able to let the past go. However… my heart won’t allow me to come to terms with it. But i know that i should. Joanna, I really like being around you. The problem is… the habit. My sister and family are seeking to keep me away from you. They’re gonna attempt to keep me busy. That way there won’t be any time for me to be with you.
Joanna: Why? You and I are friends. They can’t stop that…
Carly: You really think that. don’t you? You see… that is where the issue lies. Because they can and they’re in the thoughts of doing so. Joanna, I like you. Alot. Really much… But you truly don’t know all the members of my family. At least my cousins. They’re very adamant on the whole thing with being around anyone who’s with… a habit. Against it all. I don’t have an issue with it. i am all open for mostly everything. They however… That’s a very rough topic.
Joanna: It might mean that our time for hanging out together could be brought to an abrupt end.
Carly: Not if we can help it.
Royale Burke: *Walking in and spotting Joanna and Carly* Aunt Carly?
Carly: *Looking to see the girl* Huh?! Who are you?
Royale B.: Your niece. You don’t recognize or know me… do you?
Carly: No. I don’t. I don’t know who you are nor have i ever met you before.
Joanna: Same here.
That was when an explanation was initiated and once the truth was out… they understood.
As for Zoey…
She was with her son Casper and they were with Janie’s Daughter, Alex’s son and Charlene’s daughter…
Metropolis Middle school…
Zoey: Hey Casper, What say that we go and hang out at grandpa Zeke’s Pub and just hang out? You can play on some of the games there in the Arcade room of the Pub. They got a PS2 and A gamecube.
Casper: Sure Mom. Sounds like fun. *Looking at the others* What about them?
Zoey: They could come as well. Besides, I’m certain that their mother’s would be okay with that. They’re likely gonna be a while before they get back from Chilton anyway.
Casper: It shouldn’t be so bad. Too bad that Tina’s now a cousin. Because i think she’s cute and like to be tied to her. What can i say? She’s attractive to a guy like me. I’m only like what…11? A Little young still. But i’ve got that thing called… Puppy Love.
Tina: Hey Aunt Zoey… What do you mean by the part of saying that my mom was at Chilton? Where is Chilton?
Zoey: Chilton is in Hartford. Your mothers are at Chilton.
Arnold: How did they get there? That has to be like a rather prestigious school. A Prep school.
Zoey: Yeah. You’re right, Arnold. You know… that’s the same first name as my Uncle Arnold. He could be like your Namesake. He’s the owner to a Radio Station MRHAP.
Arnold: Nice. Sounds rather rewarding. *Grinning*
Zoey: Sure does.
Brooke: Let’s go to the Pub. I am sure that our mom will be okay with it.
Zoey: Okay. Just as soon as i find Royale and Jewel we’ll make way on over to the Pub for some rest and a nice cold drink.
Casper: Mom, I think that i know where that Burke girl went.
Zoey: Really, Casper. Where?
Tina: To the restroom. Royale Burke was holding a pack of smokes in her right hand. I don’t know how no one managed to catch sight of that. But Royale’s been smoking.
Aurora: *Running over* Zoey…
Zoey: *Looking to see Aurora* Aurora?! What’s up? Why’re you running?
Aurora: There’s something going on outside. A Block away… on the left from the school here… A Riot. A Protest…
Casper: A Protest? Near the Middle school?
Aurora: Yeah. There’s a Rally going on and it’s to cry an outrage over the election of Trump. There’s at least a swarm of 400 people heading over. I was still at the high school waiting for Carly… when i heard a bunch of people busting on over to the one street that is on the left of the school. There’s a mass of them. They’re everywhere.
Tina: Is that a bad thing? No one wants the guy for president. There’s a lot people cryin’ a uproar of discontent. None of the kids we know from the Adoption center… and a mass of people from here… don’t like him.
Brooke: No kidding. I kinda like Trump. Only on a basis of being direct and very headstrong. But if i were to say one way or another about what Trump was like… I would definitely say that i couldn’t stand him in the least. The guy’s a liar. Plus… he’s a traitor.
Aurora: There’s word that your cousin’s are also there.
Zoey: Really? Who?
Aurora: Serena, Clint, Theodore, Charlie…your brother is also there. Perry is there. Raven and Sapphire are there. Rita and Kiyoko are there with them.
What they didn’t know was that as all the tension was building behind the rallys and protests… Joanna and Carly were still chatting in the restroom. There was a lot to go on. From what was going on and taking place… The universities were out on a recess. Which was for some mysterious reason or another said to last a span of 5 months at least due to multiple fights and brawls that ensued since the previous night after the declaration of who won the Elections. Lots wanted Trump… But a great amount wanted Clinton. The part that still stayed the same and unchanged was the fact that the Dorms were still open and in use. Inhabited by College goers. What more for the deal was that with classes out in recession for awhile… The rules and conditions on having family stay with family in the dorms was lifted. But as a limited granted basis.
Nov. 10th… 8:30 AM…
Metropolis University Dorms…
Serena: Christina, You gonna be okay here with Carly?
Christina: Yeah. Where are you going, Mom?
Serena: I’m gonna out to handle some issues with my cousins. Namely Carly… As in Sora and Carly… Paul called yesterday and informed of being told about the concerning friendship or relationship going on between her and this one girl named Joanna. It’s gonna be okay. Maybe when i get back… we’ll all take off and go to the theater and go see a movie. Just us 3.
Clint: Rikki, You looking forward to school today, Princess?
Rikki: Yes Dad. I’m just about ready to go. But what about you?
Clint: I’m gonna be hanging out with your Aunts dealing with a Familial matter.
Clint: afraid so. It’s nothing major. But rather something that needs to be addressed.
Mara: Hey dad, Is everything alright with my Aunts and Uncles?
Theodore: Yeah. Everything’s okay… At least for the most part. Why do you ask, Sweetie?
Mara: I’m just curious as to why everyone’s acting concerned about Aunt Carly and her ties to this girl named Joanna Barlow.
Theodore: *Sighs* Well… It’s a rather discomforting thing to talk about…
Theodore: Come sit next to me and i’ll try to explain the situation.
Mara: Okay. *Walking over to her dad and sitting next to him*
Theodore: Mara, Have you ever heard of a troubled person who can’t decide what gender they want to be?
Mara: No. I didn’t hear of one.
Theodore: That’s what Joanna Barlow is. She’s a transgender. She was born as a girl… but then went under the guise of wanting to be a boy. She used that to attain the attraction of your aunt Carly and now that she’s back as a girl… It’s got a bit of us in a array of worry and concern. Plus she smokes and has gotten some of her mess to run onto Carly. We have to find some ways to pull the two apart and keep it where the two have little to no time to hang with each other.
Mara: Isn’t that kinda a mean thing to do?
Theodore: It does seem rather mean. However… What’s going on with your Aunt Carly… It will eventually come to hurt her. That’s why your aunts are doing what they know to be the right thing.
However as they were all planning on what to do to keep Joanna and Carly apart. There was another Rally being set up and this one held 800 people that time and there were also a group of them going to throw some smoke bombs and were gonna pelt the location with eggs and spray paint on the windows of the exposed to be another Trump tower.
There was also the funeral for Leslie’s father Carl. It was also the day that he was to be buried. It happened all in just one day and with it being so busy… no one had any time to do anything. Or had they?
What was it gonna spell out for the fighters as the Elected new President was setting his sights on them as well as on those who have different lifestyles. Or are either Bi, Gay, Lesbian or transsexual? Protests were now being conducted and it was only just the beginning. More was to come and what was worse… was the fact that most of them were in the line of. Something dark was coming. The next apparent threat was nearing even further and there was gonna be no stopping it. Was it gonna be in league to pull Joanna and Macie into it? What about the Kids to the fighters… Were they gonna become bargaining chips for what was to come? What about Leslie? What was her future gonna be like? Was it gonna be a new means for the tyrants at Chilton to use and torment her? Or would it become her way to possibly shut the school down? Were they gonna be ready for when the new threat came? Find out in the next chapter of the Adventures of the Rhapsody Girls Z! as the saga continues…
