059 Jemma is Moving On (09-23-13)

Told by Jemma.

That night I broke up with Stevan, I was looking at all the pictures we had professionally done. They were still sitting on my computer – I never did do anything with them. I guess I was waiting for him to propose before I edited them to show them off. But he never did.

But they were all so wonderful, and I was oh so sad. I picked out some favorites and made borders around them and saved them in a folder in case he ever came back to me.

Although I’m thinking he might not…

092113-2897e

We had been together since high school. Our prom picture was still on my night stand. But that would have to change.

092113-2996e

A lot of things would have to change now. I had to put him out of my mind and accept the fact that it just wasn’t meant to be.

092113-2997e

He was my only real boyfriend anyway. A lot of people go through many boyfriends before finding the right one, so I’ve been told. My mom had a lot of boyfriends. Maybe even girlfriends. I don’t think I’m gay though. I like boys.

The day after we broke up was Snowflake Day. That was kinda hard, breaking up with him the day before Snowflake Day. But I knew it wouldn’t be as hard as trying to be happy with him and exchanging gifts when inevitably we would have to break up anyway. Forever alone, just like calzone.

But it was hard seeing everyone around me all happy.

092113-2436e

“So you and Grayson are still getting along, hey?”

092113-4002e

“So far, so good.”

092113-4004e

“That’s nice.”

092113-4001e

I watched my sister getting ogled by the guys. Why was Tegan suddenly getting all the attention? Because she had suddenly developed these long legs and curled her hair and learned how to put on makeup? My makeup, that is. And my curling iron.

092113-2481e

Oh well, at least I had my drink.

092113-2472e

I mean, at least I had my baby.

Mom wasn’t due til much later that night, but she actually went into labour in the middle of the party.

092113-2518e

And then something else unexpected happened. I got a call from Derrick Wen! Very strange. Why was he calling me?

092113-2521e

He wanted to meet at the beach house. That was where I first met Stevan. Why did he want to meet me all the way over here?

092113-2550e

“Hi Derrick. What’s up? I was kinda surprised to get your call.”

092113-2549e

“Jemma, thanks for meeting me. I— ahh, this might sound weird but, I wanted to apologize.”

092113-2558e

“Apologize? For what?”

092113-2552e

“Just for being a jerk. You’re a really nice girl and I was a jerk to you a few times.”

“Okay…”

“And also I wanted to apologize for Stevan.”

092113-2548e

“For Stevan….?”

As it turned out, he had worked with Stevan and got to know him a bit. Stevan just wasn’t really that into me, he said. And there was this other girl he was more interested in. I didn’t know who she was – some red-head chick, he said. It was a bit of a blow, but I told Derrick I had already broken up with Stevan. So it didn’t really matter anymore. At least I would have to convince myself that it didn’t.

092113-2573e

Still, I felt really uncomfortable, being here alone with Derrick when he was still going out with Shellie. I’m sure it wasn’t because he liked me or anything. But what if people found out? I told him thanks and left him there.

Over the next while, the snow started to melt and I put Stevan out of my mind and put myself full-on into my singing career.

Calls were coming in like crazy, now that spring was here. Everyone was flirting and being in love and wanting romantic-grams and celebration-grams and whatever-grams. The good thing was, I found out where to find all the men — at the gym!

In one day alone I met a handful of men. First the dashing Morty Goth.

092113-2595e

And Jaxen Miles, who I think my sister was interested in… or he was interested in her, I’m not sure. Or he was interested in all of us.

“Your family is like, famous! You’re all such beautiful blondes.”

092113-2605e092113-2607e

This guy was really polite. He was Alain Rocha, son of Vinna the baby challenge lady (and might I add, was the one who wrote a defaming post about me passing out in public, but I’ll forgive her for that because she has cute sons).

092113-2608e

Alain: “I believe it was destiny that we met. We have so much in common. And I don’t care what anyone else thinks, I think you’re hot.”

A little creepy, but okay then. He does do the same gestures as me, so maybe we do have so much in common.

092113-2611e

Of course, it wasn’t all men that I did sing-o-grams for.Β This girl was a bit of a bitch, because she was trying to flirt and I was late because I was doing other grams across town.

092113-2620e092113-2619e

Flannery: “What took you so long?! Can’t you see Bobby and I are trying to get romantic here?”

092113-2623e

Of course I held my tongue. But she was okay after. We chatted inside, and she is a partier like me and she seemed like a lot of fun. I really needed some girl friends since I no longer had Stevan.

092113-2629e

“Maybe we could go to the club sometime.”

“That’d be cool.”

092113-2633e

It seemed like every man (or woman) and his dog (or cat) were at the gym at any given time. Plenty of fish in the sea?? Pfft… forget that. Plenty of men at the gym!

092113-2760e

On this day I had just done a gram for Kam Baker, when none other than Jaxen Miles called. For a date.

092113-2650e

Sorry Tegan. Ya snooze, ya lose.

092113-2652e

092113-2654e

Stay tuned…Β

      Jaxen is so funny – there will be more pictures of him stealing phone shots of the Watley girls. πŸ˜‰ He is a Klepto after all. LOL

      • Hahahaha that’s so great, I didn’t have the celebrity system turned on until recently so I forgot how funny the obsessive picture taking can be. — Yeah I wanna feel bad for poor Stevan in that respect but ya know… *grumble*

    Uh oh! 😯 I hope Tegan wasn’t all that into Jaxen, but I hope he treats Jemma right!

    • I really thought he would too. 😦 Jovanna is a little sweetie – I think she’ll be fine. Tegan was kinda into Jaxen.. LOL she ranked him 10 out of 10 and blindingly stunning. Oh well! Question now is, will Jemma treat Jaxen right…?
