Morning guys!

My, you really opened up last night!

I've been trying to get you to talk in this thread all week, and when it finally happens, I'm not even there. I'm such a schmuck.

I should really move to the States. It would make this a whole lot easier.

Yay! The marsh has come alive!

for everyone. I'm in a good mood today. (Well, so far... )

Now I gotta go back to work.

What's so funny 'bout peace, love and understanding?

Oh and here's my contribution. High school was pretty frustrating, but more because of a certain physics professor than social relations. The first three years I was pretty much an outsider, cause I was kinda shy , but I got along with most of my classmates and they usually respected me so I didn't perceive it as a problem. I quite enjoyed my status as a loner to tell you the truth.

But then I fell in love with one of the guys from the main clique in the last year and that presented quite a dilemma. I somehow managed to infiltrate myself into that group and I spent the rest of the year hanging out with them. We're still good friends. But it wasn't the sort of elitist clique that looks down on everyone else, otherwise I obviously wouldn't fit in.

Never did get that guy though. But all in all it was a positive experience. I enjoyed being part of a friendly group of people but maybe that's only because we were 17 and 18 and have moved beyond the outright childish behavior of the first couple of years.

Hi Hitman!

I feel your pain. I don't even know his taste in music. *nudge, nudge, wink, wink*

Alex returns to Layla’s house from practice and can’t find her anywhere, so he decides to relax with some music. Switching on the tape, he finds nothing but silence. He rewinds the tape and is not impressed by what he hears, although it has to be said that Layla’s voice is angelic and has the power to hypnotise men in a matter of seconds.
He begins to feel that Layla will never get over Juan Carlos and his crest falls all way to the ground. Suddenly he’s not sure if he wants to be the rebound guy anymore, he considers himself far too gorgeous for that.

When Layla comes home, he confronts her with his discovery. “I don’t think you appreciate me the way you should, you know many women would kill to be in you place right now.” Layla decides to ignore this last remark and in a rare moment of unreserved candor she tells him exactly how she feels.


Most of the time
I'm clear focused all around, *yep, Miss Control Freak*
Most of the time
I can keep both feet on the ground *can’t help it, they’re heavy*
I can follow the path, I can read the signs
Stay right with it when the road unwinds
I can handle whatever I stumble upon. *but I trip up first*
I don't even notice he's gone,
Most of the time.

Most of the time
It's well understood,
Most of the time
I wouldn't change it if I could
I can't make it all match up, I can hold my own
I can deal with the situation right down to the bone
I can survive, I can endure *just like Gloria Gaynor*
And I don't even think about him
Most of the time.

Most of the time
My head is on straight *using neck support*
Most of the time
I'm strong enough not to hate.
I don't build up illusion 'til it makes me sick
I ain't afraid of confusion no matter how thick.
I can smile in the face of mankind.
Don't even remember what his lips felt like on mine
Most of the time.

Most of the time
He ain't even in my mind
I wouldn't know him if I saw him
He's that far behind. *ancient history, baby*
Most of the time
I can't even be sure
If he was ever with me
Or if I was with him.

Most of the time
I'm halfway content *but the glass is half empty*
Most of the time
I know exactly where it went *down Hackie Lane*
I don't cheat on myself, I don't run and hide *chicken*
Hide from the feelings that are buried inside
I don't compromise and I don't pretend
I don't even care if I ever see him again *oh, sweet indifference*
Most of the time.

Alex is not entirely convinced he caught all the shades and undertones of this confession but he smiles understandingly anyway.

Later on at the court…

Layla is filled with rage at Hackie’s audacity, but she is torn as to what she should do about it. On the one hand, she wants to go over there immediately and shut her up for good, but on the other hand she feels responsible for what is happening on the courts and knows she should try to help Alex somehow. This indecision is only momentary though, since the devil inside takes over and moves her body until it is positioned right behind Hackie’s unsuspecting back. But before she proceeds to do something unmentionable to her nemesis, the angelic side wakes up and in the nick of time removes her hand from the position where it might do some permanent damage. Layla concentrates on Alex for the moment and begins to sing to him while he is waiting for the trainer. She finds the perfect volume, just loud enough for Alex to hear, but not so loud as to alert the security. She hasn’t watched enough episodes of MacGyver to feel confident that she could come up with another trick like that. All she can do is copy him anyhow, since no one can be as creative as MacGyver and she harbors no illusions about her genius.

I call you when I need you
And my heart's on fire
You come to me, come to me
Wild and wire
You come to me, give me everything I need

You bring a lifetime of promises
And a world of dreams
You speak the language of love
Like you know what it means
And it can't be wrong
Take my heart and make it strong

Cause you're simply the best
Better than all the rest *pffft*
Better than anyone
Anyone I ever meet
I'm stuck on your heart
I hang on every word you say
Tear us apart
Baby I would rather be dead

Deep in your heart
I see the star
Of every night and every day
And in your eyes I get lost
I get washed away
Just as long as I'm here in your arms
I could be in no better place
Cause you're simply the best

Alex looks at her gratefully, but the same couldn’t be said of Andrei, who seems to be gettting more and more frustrated:

Hey you! Aren’t you supposed to be somewhere else? Ferrero is playing on Court # 3, you know. he quips sarcastically.

You’re ruining my concentration here. Honey, go get the baby, I think we need some back up.

But then he lightens up, seeing that the situation is so ridiculous. He turns to Alex and jokes:

Lol are we really so boring that we need all this extra drama just to prevent people from falling asleep during our matches. Maybe you can try pumping some fists and roaring, and I’ll try to trip over my feet as much as I can. That’s what we call division of labor in Romania. Let’s give the public what they want, that stuff seems to get them excited. So what do you say? COME ON!

[i]Alex laughs and returns to the court feeling a whole lot better. The nausea he felt has misteriously disappeared even before the trainer could find the right court.[/l]
