'Nother done

So another year has passed for me. I have to say on-line and off-line friends had made it one of the best I've had in a long while, especially the week leading up to Sunday. I had some of the very best presents...

Hubs took me to Borders to pick out a book for my b-day present. I managed to weasel two which he said one was from him, the other was from the boys. I got Roxanne St. Claire's latest Now You Die and Shayla Black's latest book (I couldn't resist!)

My friend Keeshe wrote me a fun fanfic between myself and my favorite character in the Dark-Hunter series (Dev Peltier). It's posted on here. While reading it, I had a HUGE smile on my face and giggled at some parts.

The next day or perhaps the day after I was surprised with yet another fanfic written for my birthday between myself and Dev. This one from my dark-hunter chat cronie and friend Stormee. Pfft, DO NOT LET HER LIE AND SAY SHE'S NOT A GOOD WRITER!! Again, I had this large smile on my face and giggled at parts.

I had LOTS of b-day wishes. Just wanted to say to those who gave me wishes a big and heartfelt THANK YOU! Each and every one of them brought smiles to my face.

The night before "the day" I was in the dark-hunter chat with Alex and the rest of the crew. Alex let chat stay open for a half hour more in honor of my b-day! When it struck midnight she was the very first to wish me a happy birthday. Now that just rocked!

I got woken by a call by my mother to wish me a happy birthday. This year she didn't send me a card and money because times are rough for her. She's only working three days a week at her job while the rest of the time she's taking care of my grandfather who is temporary staying with her.

To those who don't know, my grandfather has Alzheimers and he's a handful. I really don't know how she and my step father handles it. He's very needy and can't do anything himself. So you can imagine the stress and rough time she's having. But I was glad she gave me a call. Then she grilled me about the move.

Then Joann called me, from work, to sing me happy birthday. Of course there had to be something to dampen the day. The soon to be ex-landlord hunted down the husband at his parents. He and his step dad were building something for me to give to my friend for her b-day/christmas gift.

Literally the ass started harrassing him when the hubs and his father put the jerk into his place. So we're renting a Uhaul truck to get the rest out of the place, putting in Mike's garage until our new place is ready for us. I want to completely wash my hands of the ass. I do hope karma turns around and bites him hard on the ass. He deserves it.

And no, I really did not hear any well wishes from my in laws. I was at the mother in laws briefly, but that's okay. You know I'm use to it. They'll make a big production of the hubs on the 16th and go "Oh I didn't know it was her b-day the seventh" or "I completely forgot it was her b-day the seventh" when they remember their daughter's husband's b-day the fourth. *shrugs*

The hubs took me to Applebees for my b-day dinner. The man was smart and DID NOT TELL THE WAITRESS IT WAS MY BIRTHDAY! I went to the bathroom, came back to clapping. I was like "Oh he better not". The look I gave him if he did seared. But he didn't (thank the goddess), it was for an eighteen year old's b-day.

My cake was one of those strawberry cheesecake in a shooter glass.

Today I had an art friend asked if I wanted a b-day drawing. Aww wasn't that sweet.

Birthday surprise

I just have to say that I have some of the awesome-ist, cool, thoughtful friends in the world. So my birthday is literally right around the corner, on Sunday. I've had about three b-day wishes on myspace alone, two being authors.

Then Keeshe has been wishing me a happy b-day everyday until it actually is. She started a change reaction in chat when she wished me one. Then everyone's like "Happy B-day Rao"

Even my friend J-chan wished me an early b-day (her's being today which I gave her an early happy bday wishes and left er a message about wishing her birthday wishes.)

Keeshe wrote me a birthday gift. I so lubs it. Dev Peltier belongs to Sherrilyn Kenyon..but I thought to share it with everyone!

After a long day which fell into an evening of chatter with her friends and rp mates, Rao felt exhausted but pleased. Another day of her kids in bed actually sleeping and another day she was not harassed by her husband. It was a miracle really. Now if only that could continue for the rest of eternity, everything will be great. Oh and a million dollars will come in the mail without any strings attached.

But no one was truly that lucky. She'll just take what she can get.

A good night sleep for one. Which she hopes is exactly what she'll get tonight. Opening the door to her bedroom, she noticed the lights were off and it was definitely dark. The light from the outside filtered in from behind her, casting a long shadow to the bed. There was a bare leg on the bed. She could see a color of tawny flesh above the sheets. That.. is not her husband's leg. She blinked and rubbed her eyes under her glasses. Did she walk into the wrong room? She looked over her shoulder then back into the room. No, Rao was in the right room.

Her gaze followed the leg up into the shadows, while her eyes adjusted she saw more form. More male form. That was definitely not her husband! There was someone naked or perhaps semi naked in her room. The first thing she imagined was to call the cops to protect the boys.. But what if the person was dead? Damn it, the sheets be ruined!

A low moan came from the bed. A male moan.

Yeah, that isn't her husband. He doesn't sound half as good as that. It drew a shiver down her spine and that sensation is rare.

Alright.. There is someone on her bed, naked or semi naked, alive. Now what? Her gut said to call the cops. But this was Newport, Cops coming on time from a call would be like the second coming.. Nothing. If only she had a bat. With the kids to bed, she could take care of this. She could. She hoped. "You better not attack.. I'm five feet of wild cat." She muttered as her hand reached for the light switch. Be prepared...Be prepared.

The lights flared on and she squinted to avoid the sting of bright white until normalcy returned. Her eyes went back to the bed and her jaw dropped to the floor. "Nooo..." She gave in shocked awe. This was not possible. There was a naked god on her bed.

Naked and.. Were those handcuffs? Oh but he was naked. Perfect body, from gold mane down to large but handsome bare feet. Even his toes were nice! Her gaze moved around and up and down, losing track of them even, because there was so..much of him! He was big but in a good sexual deviant lusty way. A man like this does not exist here in Newport! Did she fall asleep at the computer? If she did, she sure as hell is a sauna, wasn't going to wake up!

"Oh goddess." Breathing was becoming difficult.

A flash of dark ink snagged her attention, it came from his arm as it seems he was slowly becoming conscious. One step closer, she recognized the tattoo. Double bow mark. Only one person, blond, gorgeous, and with that mark. Devereaux Peltier. Or as everyone calls him Dev.

But that is not possible. Far far from possible. Impossible. But thoroughly naked and handcuffed to her bed. Her brows went up as she stared, alarmingly. How could this happen? She must be dreaming. She pinched herself quickly, this time to be sure. Nope, just a bit of sting but the vision did not leave her bed. She had a naked man on her bed who does not truely exist. But it didn't stop her from looking her fill.

Another step in, Dev's leg moved, pushing at something white and folded. A letter. Ah-ha! An explanation! She dove in and snatched it up even though her fingers were wanting to brush over those beautiful legs instead. That will have to wait for now. She opened it with a simple yet familiar handwriting.

Dear Rachie,
Don't ask how. Just enjoy. OH, and your hubby will be gone for the rest of your life as.. Missing. So sorry. But here is a nice Dev to cheer you up. He's all yours.

Love, Your ever evil diabolical sister

P.S: The key to the cuffs are on the desk. Do everything I know you would do and then some. <3>

Her eyes peered over the paper when she heard more movement from the bed. Seems Dev was becoming fully awake. His eyes seemed drowsy but that was sure to fade as they stared. Turning slightly, he settled onto his back, drawing one legs up to gain her full scrutiny. "So." He deep voice causing flutters into her belly. "Five foot of wild cat..? I'd like to see that."

Smiling, Rachie tossed the paper away as she thought to her next new move. "You will."

A full smile came to his handsome lips. "I also hear its your birthday."

"It sure is." Then she pounced.

Dev belongs and copywritten by Sherrilyn kenyon. Keeshe just knows he's my favorite of her series!

'Nother one!

I was telling an art friend about Sherrilyn Kenyon's books. Finally she decides to give her a try. This is the response I get from her which had me laughing: YOU!I bought Night Pleasures and sat down to start reading it yesterday afternoon... and finished the book at about three this morning... Damn you and your addictive books!
