Salem lifted her head from her hands, and though a slight grimace formed on her lips upon seeing Teddy, she couldn't bring herself to say anything. She was so desperate for company,  she would gladly put up with his shallow remarks if it meant getting some comfort.

"Teddy, it's Chrissy...she ate one of my basil plants." She closed her eyes, willing herself not to cry  as she tried to keep her voice steady. "Chrissy's been sluggish all day, and I don't know if basil's poisonous for cats. I don't want to go back in, because...because what if..." She trailed off, staring down at her trembling hands. She remembered how scared she was when she first came to the badlands, and how comforting Chrissy's weight was on her chest whenever she went to sleep. Chrissy was always there, by her side, either napping or asking for cuddles. "I can't lose her, Ted. Not already."

i want to start this off by saying sorry

i'm not as active as i want to be, and i am trying my best to keep up.
i don't really have a lot of creative juices flowing around as i did a few years ago, as a lot of stuff had happened since then that's kind of stopped me from enjoying things. i do love roleplaying, so much, and i want to keep going, so just kinda,,,be patient, i guess?

and this is kinda where los santos comes in, because i feel terrible for not being able to do anything with the group. i don't really,,,have any ideas for it. i'm not gonna give it up and i will try to keep going

yall are grand and don't deserve my slow activity hHJKEGS

short and not very sweet, but i just thought i'd let yall know as to why i'm not active around here. plus with covid getting worse and worse in my area, i'm getting more anxious to leave the house and it's really messing up with my schedule and my ability to do things i personally enjoy.

tldr; i'm just slow hhgjksbmb

tw; mention of abuse , murder

janelle has an idea what it's like to lose someone you love.

only twenty-one, but it's not as if it didn't hurt any less. she loved julian. even with the remainder of bruises he made on her to mark her, now faded like an unwanted memory, she loved him. he had a temper, that part was true. he was brash, sometimes reckless. but sometimes you hurt the people you love. she wasn't absent of her own temper. sometimes she said stupid shit. it didn't take away, or lessen, the safety she felt when he held her in his arms. how had she been the one to survive? it doesn't matter. she survived, and julian is dead. the only thing she could do is move on. but it's hard when theodore knope is a hop, skip, and jump away from her past and who she had been.

she avoids him, and within good reason. ever since she witnessed for torture he displaced on mike, she couldn't look him in the eye. she was fucking angry, that was for sure, but even worse . . . she feared him. she hated being reminded of her own fear , the fear that she tried to escape when she'd lodged the knife into julian's chest.

still , it's like he's everywhere. when she sees mike , she considers approaching him despite her own guilt. why was she guilty, as if she could have stopped it? no, she didn't hold that power of theodore's choices, but still. he was an almost. . . normal man, or as normal as one could get here, whose odds were against him the moment he lost his temper to a man who knew that either way, he'd win. an asshole at that. no, a coward at that. what stops her from approaching mike? well, teddy makes his way over there because he knows he has the authority to. she couldn't believe the fucking nerve of him , to not let mike has his peace. in a way they were the same in that aspect and for a moment— she thinks she meets mike's eyes. theodore knope is everywhere. ultimately, she makes the decision to go, not wanting to overwhelm him.

she needs her own peace, anyway.

she's in an endless cycle, it seems.

it starts with her papi, her father. he is the one who is supposed to teach her what love from your significant other should be, what romantic love should look like, and he chooses to show it in the harshest way. bruises the size of boulders line her body on the nights he finally chooses to come home, and when he's not home, he's gone for days on end. you'd think she'd hate him, in some aspect, she does. had she come from a normal family, she'd never have met men like julian or theodore, slithering snakes disguised as beautiful men. but her family wasn't near normal, and in a sense, she'd been daddy's little girl. he'd feed her lies, justifying the reasons her mami deserved her abuse:

he loved her, but she didn't know how to keep her legs closed. that her mami was a slut who needed to learn a lesson, that she was a terrible mother and he just wanted what was best for his babygirl. hear that enough, and you start to believe it. no matter how much dread she felt when she happened to witness the prior and aftermath, she believed it. and it's what made her almost fall victim to the hands of julian. follow him to the ends of the earth almost to fall off because of him and yet, she was doing it again like an idiot. she knows what happens if she closes the door theodore knope's face, though. they both knew, and so after standing there for a couple of minutes and letting the question hang in the air, she pushes her hand from the door she holds and turns away, allowing him to come in.

"i don't really want to talk to you." even though he knows this, she says it anyway as if it may change anything. she wants him to know that he isn't going into her fire without potentially getting burned; she won't subside in his presence, even if he thinks he has that affect on her. trending over towards the kitchen island, she leans against it, and crosses her arms.

"don't you have somewhere to be anyway? someone to torture or wait never mind," she lifts up a finger, eyes briefly drifting away from him as if she suddenly remembered "you have assholes to fight your battles for you." after all janelle's gone through, you'd think she'd watch herself around these dangerous men, but her father has always prided her on being a fighter.
