There are few things quite as teeth-grindingly pretentious as including random foreign phrases in an otherwise English post...But I digress.

And Emi and Hisao's kiss was hardly unpredicted. She predicted it out loud. :lol:

And that should be allowed but it would likely be merged into the 'feels bazaar' thread.
Hisao's reaction was like, "WUT?" Please, Hisao didn't predict it.
And, I included that french idiom, because I didn't figure out one in english.
Finally, the whole story I'm writing is connected to a question I have to ask all of you. It's a big question, that can include many opinions as well as experiences from others.

But you did. The words "a lot". :lol:

And that's because Hisao is a dumb.

Hey hey :P, I want to create a bigger ambiance, the word "a lot" is too shallow.

Emi. Fucking Emi. "Dead" father and all. (He was dead to her until about a month or two before he actually died.)

She made me miserable. Oh god, it was great at first, it really was. We hit it off marvelously, but...well, much like Emi, it escalated quickly. I wasn't always ready for that. For her, sex=love. It did, at least. So when I wasn't in the mood....she decided that didn't matter.

Much like Emi, her reaction to lemon time wasn't pleasant. Unlike Emi, she cried. I hold that memory dear to my heart, because we went straight-up bad end and I despise this chick now. Call me horrible, bitter, whatever: you're right, I am.

There were threats of suicide lobbed (mostly in my direction). She didn't keep people at a distance so much as Emi did, but she definitely put up a false front for the people around her. And she had her own "anniversary" too. Warning: this shit is fucked up. Around February-Marchish, when she miscarried her ex's child. She told me (and I believe her, the guy's fucking scum) that her ex raped her a lot, and she drowned herself in booze and some prescription drugs. Being a seventeen year old guy with my own array of psychological issues....I didn't handle it well.

We both made our mistakes, don't get me wrong. We tried to get it back, but what we had was gone. I was too angry, and she wasn't willing to commit, which is hilarious because I had that problem until I went through Lilly's path and realized what I had to lose.

Then we continued on and off for about a year, and about a week before my birthday (which is March 17th) this year she dropped the bomb that she'd started seeing her ex who she started dating right around the....second/fourth or fifth time we broke up, depending upon how you look at it.

Haven't spoken to her since, and I don't regret it. And it won't be a few more months before she has a chance to randomly text me wanting to talk (I don't memorize numbers well and have annihilated it from my phone) because she's in BT right now. Yay National Guard!

Is it bad that I immediately assumed this as soon as I read the words "sex=love"? That perception seems to be a bizarrely common thing among those unfortunates (you're welcome to ask where I get that idea, but it will depress the hell out of you)...Which is really doubly fucking awful because that mindset fucks with anyone they may end up with too.

And it's usually great at first. That's the trick of it. The ones that remain great, they're the tough ones to find...

Gah, that's like... Emi's bad side, times a million. Sorry about that.

I suppose some overlap would be inevitable, but remember that Hanako's Broken Heart Club can be found here.

Closest to that would be bonding with someone who--sans burns--reminded me of Hanako. To this day, she and I remain close friends.

I didn't date her (wanted to, but she was otherwise attached), but put Akira in Emi's body, and you're not far off of my best friend in late 2007-early 2008 or so.

You lucky little...

Jealousy aside, the closest I have is a regular friend who's like a male version of Misha. In fact, most of my friends are varying shades of Misha and Emi: maddened, loud, a little stupid, and obsessed out of the head with sports. Not sure why I'm still friends with them, but eh.
