Lawless - A woman scorned...

Biggish update. Beware.


Soon enough, Talim followed Osaka into teenhood.

She was very conscious of her looks, and who could blame her? She was still awesome.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

She didn't get a big ego over it, though. Even if she did know how good she looked.

Life was all about fun for Talim. She still LOVED to play darts.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

...And her newest passion? Singing! Both she and her mother Jelly were talented singers.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Whether belting out a fast-paced metal song, or crooning a passionate love song, she had the voice of an angel.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Her new friend Nathan shared her passion, too.

He looked a bit rough and rude, but around Talim, he was as sweet as a kitten. He'd do anything to impress her or make her smile.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Talim loved his sweet artistic side, and they shared their first kiss on a quiet date at home.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Meanwhile, BJ was going to school and making friends.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

EVIL FRIENDS.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

And soon enough, Raquel joined the other girls. She was finally breaking out of her lonely shell to hang out with people. Her real love was learning, though. She was a sharp girl.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

She had little patience though, and was still quite happy to lounge around in the afternoons.

Jetta made a few appearances, her new-found hatred for her daughter in law exploding forth in the aftermath of her son's death and the seduction of her poor sweet little girl. She often stormed over to yell at Veronica and blame her for everything. Still as mean as ever.

Osaka studiously did her homework every day before retiring to the bookshelf or kitchen to work on her cooking.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

She brought home a male friend one day, and introduced him to her mother rather shyly. His name was Edward. Roni was a bit nervous about her gentlest girl dating anyone yet, but she held her tongue.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Talim, on the other hand, thought it was cute, and watched them from the couch.
..."Hey, come on. I dare you two to kiss." She grinned playfully.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Edward wasn't one to back down from a dare, especially not that one. Osaka was thrilled. Talim was amused and happy for her. Raquel... didn't like him at all.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Osaka immediately asked if he'd like to go steady, of course... but he didn't want to be tied down yet, and turned her down. She was crushed.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Retreating to her beloved grilled cheese sanctuary, Osaka tried not to look upset as he followed. Raquel chased after them and pulled him aside.
"What are you, some kind of alien? How could you do that to her?"
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Raquel was surprisingly upset about the whole thing. She wasn't even very close to her sister, but this just pissed her off.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

After he left, and Osaka went to bed, Raquel went outside to think for a while.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

She got an idea. a nasty idea. A horrible nasty EVIL idea. ...She would make this boy's life a nightmare.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Jelly noticed Raquel outside, and just sort of looked on, confused, as she burst into evil giggles.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Didn't stop her from singing, though.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Nathan dropped by one night while everyone was sleeping.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

He hurriedly dropped off his gift, and grinned to himself. This had been hard to get ahold of.. but Tal would love it.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Yeah, he was a bit rough, people called him a bad guy or a thief... but he was head over heels for this girl. He'd do anything for her.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

A few days later, Raquel ran into Edward the loserboy and snickered in his face.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

"You're no bombshell yourself." he stated defensively, after she compared his face to a baboon's ass.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

"Look, buster. YOU started this. Not me."
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

"The hell did I do?!" He snorted, looking at Raquel like she escaped from the nuthouse down the block.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

"What did you..? ...You don't even KNOW?!"
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

That did it. Raquel slapped him right across his idiotic face right then and there.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

She couldn't stand this guy. She'd make sure he never came back to bother Osaka again.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

The fight was long and hard, but she finally got him in a headlock.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

He whined like a girl until she threw him down, damn proud of herself.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

He was humiliated. He'd been beaten down by a girl. A younger girl, no less.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

He was never the same. Rumours spread like wildfire, and his social life was ruined.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Raquel became rather popular with the girls at school who'd been burned by him in the past. One in particular really liked her.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Raquel asked Noelle to be her girlfriend, and she wasn't taking no for an answer. Noelle liked her take-charge attitude.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

When Osaka found out what happened, she confronted her little sister right away. (Unusual for the sweet Osaka~)
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Raquel told her about how she sent that loser packing for what he'd done to her. She wasn't sorry, even if Osaka was mad at her.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Osaka had no idea her sister cared so much.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

She hugged her tight and wiped away tears. It was the first time in ages they'd really talked to each other.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Osaka decided the best way to thank her sister was with a cake and special (non-grilled cheese) dinner.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Roni wondered what the occasion was, but Osaka brushed off the questions until they were seated and served.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Once seated, Osaka explained the whole thing to their mom.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Raquel ate quietly, enjoying her just desserts and listening to them talk.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Veronica smiled and expressed her happiness that they were so close. She hoped they'd keep looking out for one another like this.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Raquel just smiled and said it was no big deal.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Jelly came home in a bad mood... she'd been having troubles at work. Making mistakes. Maybe law enforcement wasn't her thing?
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

No, she wouldn't give up. She still dreamed of being a super hero one day, with a shiny costume and lots of reward money. For now, she'd work on writing children's books in her spare time, to relax.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Talim didn't bother with all the drama in the family at all. She was focused on having a good time.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

She was head over heels in love!
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Things couldn't get better for her. She even had a part-time job now.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Sure it was boring, but at least she had some money of her own to spend on dates, when Nathan wasn't spoiling her himself.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Several weeks later, a quiet boy Osaka recognised from class followed her off the bus. His name was Thomas, and he wanted to know if he could hang out.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

He was interested in cooking as well, and happened to mention he loved grilled cheese.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Osaka flipped. Someone she could talk to about her favourite subject?!
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Sure, he was a bit of a class clown, but he was shy like she was around new people.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

She quickly made up some sandwiches and happily shared. When Thomas actually complimented her choice of cheese, she got flustered and blushy.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Through all her excited babbling about grilling techniques and bread selection, he didn't scowl once, like Edward often had.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Osaka had never been happier in her life.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

That same day was BJ's birthday, but he wasn't interested in a big party. He had ordered pizza and set up music in the living room, so they could just chill out and relax. It was cheaper that way, and he'd taken to worrying about money since Jelly started having work problems.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

But then, something went terribly wrong. The pizza never showed up, and BJ hadn't eaten in a few days. He'd been too busy with his homework and hadn't even thought about it.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

He groaned weakly and fell to the floor as the house full of people circled him, along with a face he didn't recognise.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

Things were going dark, and he felt the world sinking away as he faded from this life.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

He was gone.

Possibly the most plot I've had... ever.

Interesting.
