2020.07.05 20:18 LearningIsListening A not-so-brief rundown of letters D-F in Jeffrey Epstein's 'Little Black Book'

Below is a rundown of letters D-F of Epstein's contacts. Last year, I wrote about letters A-C. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/cpis3n/a_brief_rundown_of_the_first_ten_pages_of_jeffrey/). There are some misspelled names. Epstein entered their names like this.
I have bolded some of the more interesting connections and information, but there could be much more that I overlooked. I hope something here strikes an interest in someone and maybe we can get more investigations out of this. Please, if you know anything more about any of these people than what is presented here, post below. I am working off of the unredacted black book found here: https://www.coreysdigs.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Jeffrey-Epsteins-Little-Black-Book-unredacted.pdf
D-F
d’abo, Henri & Tatiana: John Henry Erland d’Abo is the grandson of the 9th Duke of Rutland (more info on what these titles all mean can be found here: https://www.debretts.com/expertise/essential-guide-to-the-peerage/what-is-the-peerage/).

Three years after Cadbury sold the club, their website became the center of a child pornography scandal (link to story: https://www.sott.net/article/242698-Groucho-Clubs-website-forum-hit-by-child-pornography-scandal)
D’Alessie, Carman: This name turned up no results, however, we can safely assume that this is actually Carmen D’Alessio, the international nightlife guru who helped spawn Studio 54 and other famous clubs. She is a party legend with countless celebrity ties.
d’Arenberg, Prince Pierre: Family lineage can be traced back 1000 years. European royalty. Extremely wealthy not because of his ties to nobility, but because his mother, Margaret Bedford, was an heiress to Standard Oil (Exxon).

Check out this list of celebrities and athletes that they represent (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Creative_Artists_Agency_clients). Davis then went on to produce movies and TV shows before transitioning to digital media.
Day, Nick and Heather: Not much to be found on these two. There are several articles that speak of their ranch in Kenya. Apparently, it is a fairly popular spot where people stay to get some rest and solitude.

The only daughter of Charles Henri, 11th Duke of Clermont-Tonnerre, Hermine was one of 500 guests invited to Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother’s 100th birthday back in 2000.

She speaks about how Epstein was able to lure her into the life as a young girl.

Dickinson, Janice: One of the most successful models of the ‘70s and ‘80s, Dickinson has been occasionally labeled as the first ever supermodel. Opened her own modeling agency in 2005. Ironically, she accused Bill Cosby of raping her back in 1982 and wrote about it in her memoir. When called to the stand during Cosby’s trial, Cosby’s lawyer pointed out the differences between Dickinson’s testimony and her account of the incident in her memoir.

Dorrit was the First Lady of Iceland from 2003-2016 after marrying President Olafur Ragnar Grimsson in 2000.

There is a great article detailing Dubin and his wife’s relationship with Epstein here: https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2019/09/glenn-dubin-epstein-questions). Summary of the article: Dubin was the first one accused by Epstein victim Virginia Giuffre. Rinaldo Rizzo, Dubin’s chef, testified that sexual activities occurred between Dubin and a 15-year-old girl, which led to him and his wife quitting as personal chefs of the Dubins. Dubin’s wife, Dr. Eva Andersson-Dubin, dated Epstein for a long time before she married Dubin. The couple was so close with Epstein that even after Epstein was convicted in 2008 and officially a registered sex offender, they invited him to Thanksgiving dinner and wrote a letter to his probation officer that they trusted him around their children, who were all minors at the time. Multiple sources say Epstein was actually their children’s Godfather, but a spokesman for the couple denies it. Glen Dubin and Epstein helped each other with their business ties, as well. Dubin also had other ties with Epstein (personal friends with Les Wexner and others). Dubin and his wife are definitely major players in the Epstein saga.

Duesing claims Epstein tried to hire him to work on Epstein’s home on Epstein’s private island back in 2002, but Duesing declined because he didn’t like Epstein. Says he doesn’t even know how Epstein got his number in the first place. Perhaps it was Duesing’s ties with the royal family. He tells stories of getting the Queen Mother drunk, being close with Lord and Lady Lloyd, working on the home of Mohamed Al-Fayed, father of Dodi, Princess Diana’s boyfriend who died in the car crash with her.
Duke of York: Prince Andrew, the toe-sucking pedophile (allegedly), himself. Photographed with victims, Epstein, and Maxwell many times over. His reputation has been completely crushed.

Dzhabrailov, a supremely wealthy businessman, ran for president in 2000, garnering 0.1% of the vote as an Independent.

There is also a Tracy Edwards who is a former British sailor who used to work as a Project Manager for Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre (CEOP) and now teaches children of Internet safety and online reputation.

This roleplay is loosely based off of 'Once Upon A Time In Hollywood'. But if you haven't seen the movie, it's cool.
Secret Life in the Seventies: You're not sure what's been happening recently, but when you go to sleep, you seem to be taken back to the seventies. More specifically, Hollywood. But it's not like no one knows who you are, no. In the seventies, you're a famous movie star with a long list of credits on your resumé. Whether you remember them all or not. And that's not all though, your dream life of a movie star includes a fancy Los Angeles home, established reputation and even a boyfriend/husband.
Said partner being a (movie producer, stunt man, fellow movie star or musician) who loves you to death. Considering your real life relationship hasn't been the best, you find yourself yearning for the dream partner more and more. Not to mention that he treats you like the queen you are. Though maybe you don't want to be treated like a queen. Maybe you're an independent woman who only wants an equal partner in life. Either way, while you feel stagnant in 2020, your life in the seventies is just getting started.
The prompt is purposely left a bit vague to leave room for additional side plots to be included! Examples being murder mysteries, the dark side of the entertainment industry, criminal underground, etc.
➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
Good morning! Hopefully you've made it down to this part because the prompt above caught your eye. Just want to be known that this roleplay is mainly meant to be a celebrity one. Mainly because in the movie this is based off of, a real life celebrity was used. Therefore, I do have a list of celebrities in mind below. And if you don't see one you're a fan of, just let me know. Though it is okay if you want to use an OC. Doesn't hurt to ask and check Also I tend to write anywhere from a two to four for responses. So I'd like to ask for, at least, two paragraph long replies from my partner.
Celebrity List: Ariel Winter, Bebe Rexha, Camila Mendes, Elizabeth Olsen, Emilia Clarke, Florence Pugh, Hailee Steinfeld, Halsey, Hayley Atwell, Isla Fisher, Jordyn Jones, Kiernan Shipka, Lili Reinhart, Maisie Williams, Melissa Benoist, Sabrina Carpenter, Salma Hayek, Scarlett Johansson, Sophie Turner, Sydney Sweeney.
That's all I got for now. Shoot me a DM/Reddit Chat message if you're interested or have any questions!

2019.07.26 07:17 oh-thats-deep-shit [M4F] Detailed Celebrity Roleplay! :D

Hey there,
I’m looking for a detailed partner who’s interested to work out roleplays within a celebrity context. I am open and free to discuss any range and tonality of roles from a longterm romance with build-up, to a one-off seduction scenario to even something darker and grittier with elements of non-con or blackmail.
As for what I look from a partner, good grammar, punctuation, capitalisation and overall well articulated exchanges are appreciated. I enjoy collaboratively improvising and building great fun stories. However, I’m completely open to both giving and receiving criticism and discussion, all for the good of the overall story and our individual experiences.
I don’t necessarily want you to write a million lines per exchange, but however it does make the overall experience fun when there is effort in each response. Size can be appropriately adjusted with the circumstances and I also appreciate attention to detail, especially while describing actions.
A short list of a few celebrities that enjoy playing with:
Mainstream Actresses:
Mainstream Artists/Musicians:
YouTubers:
As for where I would like for us to roleplay, I would actually prefer not to do so on Reddit. My highest priority is Discord, else we can work it out on Kik.
If interested, please send me a PM on Reddit, and we can move to an appropriate platform once we figure out if we’re a good match. I would love to have a list of your favourite celebrities both from and outside my list, and some kinks or ideas for roleplays, if you have any, in the same PM.
Thanks for going through this!

2019.01.30 15:52 santaschesthairs 2019 is looking to be a really, really exciting year for film. I’ve compiled a comprehensive list of 50+ upcoming original/adapted films that are showing real promise, and 25+ major franchise/sequel films. Includes summaries, links, and details. Enjoy!

Directed by Terrence Mallick. Starring August Deihl and Valerie Pachner.

Directed by Julius Onah. Starring Kelvin Harrison Jr., Naomi Watts, Tim Roth and Octavia Spencer.

Very interesting premise, and Daniel Kaluuya.

A 16 year old virgin with a growth hormone deficiency slowly gets corrupted by his hero, an aimless college dropout.
Directed by Jason Orley. Starring Pete Davidson and Griffin Gluck.

Triple Frontier

Directed by J.C. Chandor (Margin Call). Starring Ben Affleck, Oscar Isaac, Charlie Hunnam and Pedro Pascal.

Chaos Walking
I hope this is amazing, but the premise sounds incredibly difficult to pull off. Good cast and director, so fingers crossed. I'm using the book description here.
A dystopian world where all living creatures can hear each other's thoughts in a stream of images, words, and sounds called Noise.
Directed by Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow). Starring Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley.

The Rosie Project
Few details are out. Ryan Reynolds, based on a good book.

Directed by Ben Taylor. Starring Ryan Reynolds.

The trailer looks completely wack. Make sure you watch it:
An irreverent comedy about the misadventures of Moondog, a rebellious stoner and lovable rogue who lives large.
Directed by Harmony Korine (Spring Breakers). Starring Matthew McConaughey, Snoop Dogg, Zac Efron and Isla Fisher.

Parasite
I don't know much about this one, but the director previously made Snowpiercer, Okja and my favourite, Memories of Murder. I'm excited.

Directed by Bong Joon-Ho. Starring Song Kang-ho, Lee Sun-kyun, Jo Yeo-jeong and Choi Woo-shik.

This one comes from nowhere. An indie sci-fi with with an interesting plot, and good Sundance reviews.
A teenage girl is raised underground by a robot “Mother”, designed to repopulate the earth following an extinction event. But their unique bond is threatened when an inexplicable stranger arrives with alarming news.0
Directed by Grant Sputore. Starring Hillary Swank , Clara Rugaard-Larsen and Rose Byrne.

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile
You’ve more than likely heard of this one. Ted Bundy film starring Zac Efron. I’m not sure how excited I am for the film, but Efron’s performance is apparently very good.
A chronicle of the crimes of Ted Bundy, from the perspective of his longtime girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfer, who refused to believe the truth about him for years.
Directed by Joe Berlinger. Starring Lily Collins, Zac Efron and John Malkovich.

The Nightingale
The second film from the director of the Babadook. Really promising (and slightly divisive) reviews out of Sundance. Fun fact: you can kinda measure the divisiveness of a film on RT by comparing the percentage meter with the average rating. If the percentage is high but the average rating is low, it shows that the film is all-round solid and inoffensive. If the percentage rating is lower but the average rating is still high/moderate, it means there’s a large gap between those who loved and didn’t like it. Anyway, back to the Nightingale. I’m excited - doubly so since it’s an Aussie film.
In 1829, Claire, a 21-year-old Irish convict, chases a British soldier through the rugged Tasmanian wilderness, bent on revenge for a terrible act of violence he committed against her family. She enlists the services of an Aboriginal tracker named Billy, who is also marked by trauma from his own violence-filled past.
Directed by Jennifer Kent. Starring Aisling Franciosi, Sam Claflin, Damon Herriman and Ewen Leslie.

The Dead Don't Die
Another awesome cast, definitely one to look forward to. The plot summary isn’t out, but it’s a comedy zombie flick.
Directed by Jim Jarmusch. Starring Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Selena Gomez, Chloë Sevigny, Austin Butler, Steve Buscemi and Tilda Swinton.

Memoria
Tilda Swinton seems to be working a lot, woah.
Memoria revolves around a character (portrayed by Tilda Swinton) who suffers from exploding head syndrome, a psychological condition in which a person experiences loud noises when falling asleep or waking up.
Directed by Apichatpong Weerasethakul. Starring Tilda Swinton and Jeanne Balibar.

Where'd You Go, Bernadette
The trailer for this, particularly the music, wasn’t good. The content of the trailer shows a lot of potential though, and the book is apparently really good. Also: Richard Linklater.
When architect-turned-recluse Bernadette Fox goes missing prior to a family trip to Antarctica, her 15-year-old daughter Bee goes on a quest with Bernadette’s husband to find her.
Directed by Richard Linklater. Starring Cate Blanchett ,Emma Nelson, Billy Crudup, Kristen Wiig, Judy Greer and Laurence Fishburne.

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood
Tom Hanks seems made for this role. Should be good.
The story of Fred Rogers, the honored host and creator of the popular children’s television program, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood (1968).
Directed by Marielle Heller. Starring Tom Hanks, Matthew Rhys and Chris Cooper.

High Flying Bird
I’ll make this quick: Excellent reviews so far. Netflix in Feb. Steven Soderbergh. Shot on an iPhone. Moonlight writer.

Directed by Steven Soderbergh (Ocean’s 11). Starring André Holland Zazie Beetz Jeryl Prescott Kyle MacLachlan Caleb McLaughlin Zachary Quinto.

The Cradle
I don’t know much about this one but the plot intrigues me. For some reason it reminds me of Denis Villeneuve's early film, Incendies (if you haven’t watched yet, make it your next film - it’s incredible.)
A young couple not ready to expect their first baby track down a cradle, only to make a discovery that will change their family forever.
Directed by Hope Dickson Leach. Starring Jack O'Connell and Lily Collins.

The Woman in the Window
A Rear Window-esque movie with a great cast and director. Really hoping this is great, cos I love these kind of plots.
An agoraphobic woman living alone in New York begins spying on her new neighbors only to witness a disturbing act of violence.
Directed by Joe Wright. Starring Amy Adams, Gary Oldman, Julianne Moore and Wyatt Russell.

Gemini Man
The plot is crazy, but the cast and director can definitely pull it off.
Henry Brogen, an aging assassin tries to get out of the business but finds himself in the ultimate battle: fighting his own clone who is 25 years younger than him and at the peak of his abilities.
Directed by Ang Lee. Starring Will Smith, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Clive Owen and Benedict Wong.

The Last Black Man in San Francisco
Yet another film with great reviews from Sundance.
Jimmie Fails dreams of reclaiming the Victorian home his grandfather built in the heart of San Francisco. Joined on his quest by his best friend Mont, Jimmie searches for belonging in a rapidly changing city that seems to have left them behind.
Directed by Joe Talbot. Starring Jimmie Fails, Jonathan Majors, Rob Morgan and Tichina Arnold.

Blinded by the Light
Sundance musta been real great this year, cos once again we have another movie with good reviews out of it. Apparently wholesome and inspiring.
In 1987, during the austere days of Thatcher’s Britain, a teenager learns to live life, understand his family, and find his own voice through the music of Bruce Springsteen.
Directed by Gurinder Chadha. Starring Viveik Kalra, Nell William and Hayley Atwell.

Directed by Hannah Pearl Utt. Starring Hannah Pearl Utt, Jen Tullock and Judith Light.

Little Monsters
SUNDANCE. GOOD. ZOMBIES. COMEDY.
A washed-up musician teams up with a teacher and a kids show personality to protect young children from a sudden outbreak of zombies.
Directed by Abe Forsythe. Starring Lupita Nyong'o, Josh Gad, Alexander England and Nadia Townsend.

Jojo Rabbit
I'll watch anything Taika makes, but this looks insane - one of my most hyped. (I accidentally deleted this from the list while editing!!)
Jojo Rabbit is about a young boy living during World War II. His only escapism is through his imaginary friend, an ethnically inaccurate version of Adolf Hitler, who pushes the young boy’s naive patriotic beliefs. However, this all changes when a young girl challenges those views and causes Jojo to face his own issues.
Directed by Taiki Watiti. Starring Taiki Watiti (as Adolf Hitler), Roman Griffin Davis, Thomasin McKenzie, Scarlett Johansson, Sam Rockwell, Rebel Wilson and Alfie Allen.

The Lodge
A spoopy film that was well received at Sundance.
Two siblings spend the night alone with their new stepmother. Stuck in a remote mountain cabin, the trio are terrorised by a supernatural force.
Directed by Veronika Franz, Severin Fiala. Starring Riley Keough, Jaeden Lieberher and Lia McHugh.

Directed by Sam Mendes. Cinematography by Roger Deakins.

Dragged Across Concrete
Two policemen, one an old-timer, the other his volatile younger partner, find themselves suspended when a video of their strong-arm tactics becomes the media’s cause du jour. Low on cash and with no other options, these two embittered soldiers descend into the criminal underworld to gain their just due, but instead find far more than they wanted awaiting them in the shadows.
Directed by S. Craig Zahler. Starring Mel Gibson, Vince Vaughn, Don Johnson and Jennifer Carpenter.

I’m Thinking of Ending Things
A Charlie Kaufman film, set for Netflix.
An unexpected detour causes a woman who is trying to figure out how to break up with her boyfriend to rethink her life.
Directed by Charlie Kaufman. Starring Brie Larson and Jesse Plemons.

My thoughts

Feel free to ignore lol
After finally managing to finish this compilation, reading plots and wikis and watching trailers, I cannot believe how many good films there are coming out. This is reminding me of 2017, when I made a similar post - and 2017 was an absolutely amazing year overall, especially in light of the relative disappointment of 2018. There’s just so much promise in every category - horror, thriller, biopics, drama, action, comedy… and if you count zombie films as a genre unto themselves, then yeah, that too.
Of course, I cannot wait for Tarantino’s flick. But after that it’s hard to pick ordered favourites - Knives Out, The Dead Don’t Die, Us, The Report and Luce are films I cannot wait for, but there are so many others I’m pumped for - and I haven’t even gone into the blockbusters.

Speaking of…
For the franchise and sequel films, I haven’t gone to the effort of adding plot and cast details. They’re huge, you’ll hear all about them anyway.

Franchise/Sequel/Remake films

Godzilla: King of the Monsters
Star Wars: Episode IX
Zombieland 2: Double Tap
Pokémon: Detective Pikachu
The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part
Avengers: Endgame
Captain Marvel
Joker
Toy Story 4
Shazam!
It: Chapter Two
John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum
Spider-Man: Far from Home
Lion King
Dumbo
Aladdin
The New Mutants
Alita: Battle Angel
Hellboy
Dark Phoenix
Men in Black International
Fast & Furious presents: Hobbs & Shaw
Artemis Fowl
Charlie’s Angels
Kingsman 3
Sonic the Hedgehog
Frozen 2

I’m genuinely delirious. I told myself I would get this post done before I went to sleep and I am now totally exhausted. There were far more movies than I anticipated. This year is ridiculous and it has been mean to me. Of course, if I missed anything let me know and I’ll add it once I’ve woken up!
Oh, and if you want to follow me on Letterboxd: https://letterboxd.com/xaviertobin/
Hope you enjoy! :)

This focus exhibition explores various studies in classical beauty, from the sixteenth to early twentieth centuries.

2015.07.10 20:13 dandynarwhals An Oral History Of Helena Smith

Helena smith has been missing for two years. She and I were close. We never officially dated, but I'd spent more than one night between those thighs. It would be unfair to call her promiscuous. Helena preferred to call herself sexually progressive. I wasn’t even close to being her only lover. After bumping into a mutual acquaintance of ours, I decided to compile several stories from her ex-lovers in honor of her memory. Being a fan of oral histories, it was the format I chose.
Going into it, I wanted to stay as true to Helena’s memory as I could. Helena had expressed a hatred for the way people acted at funerals. I remember her saying,
“I’d rather everyone stand around and call me a whore than have a bunch of people talking about how I was such a great person.”
With that in mind, I contacted a few of her ex-lovers. I made a post on Facebook asking for stories about Helena Smith. Two people responded, Gabe and Enrique. I scheduled to a meeting with Gabe at a local bar and sent Enrique an email requesting any stories he might have had about the last time he saw Helena.
I arrived at The Dandy Narwhal at around seven in the evening. The Narwhal was a microbrewery with a decent menu. The smoky room was filled to the brim with aging hipsters and grown men dressed like they were still in high school. Gabe was sitting at a table in the back. We greeted each other and sat. After a short introduction and ordering some drinks; Gabe jumped right into telling me about Helena.
Story One: Gabe hooks up with Helena
The apartment door shakes with three knocks - rap, rap, rap - and I glance back at the clock and check for the time. 2:33 AM. I know it's Helena.
Her perfume leaks out from under the door, and I can hear her platform shoes shuffling at my doorstep. Faint whiff of cheap rum and cigarettes, crawling out like the ghost of my many regrets with her. I know it's Helena, and I know it may hurt in the morning.
I unlatch the door and she barges in, walking past me, straight to the couch. A mad hurricane of red, dyed hair and micro-skirts. She slumps down, head down. "I've fucked up," she mutters.
"How bad this time?" I reply.
"Real bad. I think it's over."
"With Alice?", I say. She nods, grumbles in a slurred, pained way. I walk towards her side, run my fingers through her scalp - the way she likes when she’s needy, when she needs to be comforted. She turns her head to the side and smiles. "You know what would make me feel better?" she says, winking.
"We can't do that shit anymore. I'm tired of it," I reply.
"Just this once. Please, Gabe."
"No."
She sits up, grabs my hand, and slides my fingers slowly into her mouth. All the while with a stare that could melt ingots. Her tongue flicks slowly, pushing my middle finger in and out, and she knows she's won when I struggle to stifle a moan.
"Good boy," she says. She wraps her fingers around my throat, and then she squeezes, and I know right then that it will hurt in the morning. I'll know eventually that it will hurt worse - far worse - than how it usually had; but I don't know that yet and I surrender.
I shared his opinion of Alice. To say that Alice’s relationship with Helena had been abusive would have been an understatement. I’d never met Alice, but I had cleaned up after her more than once. No matter how I tried to convince her otherwise, Helena kept going back to the woman. Each time I would clean her wounds and care for her bruises.
Gabe turned to flirt with a girl at another table as I checked my phone. I had an email response from Enrique. I will share his response below.
Story Two: Enrique talks about his last night with Helena
Yeah, I do remember the last time I saw Helena. It was late at night, around 10pm when she called me up. That wouldn't be weird for normal people but with a girl like her? She took what she wanted and came and went when she pleased, fucked whoever she liked. It didn't bother me, I mean she was beautiful and it was some good fucking sex, and it was just how it was.
Anyways, she had called me up on my cell and asked if she could come over, said she needed to get away from her bruja of a mother. It must've been bad because there was like this slight quiver to her voice, and she never had asked for permission to come over before, so I was like sure. It was like 20 minutes later before she arrived, opening and striding through the door like she owned the place. My suspicions of what went on was raised when the light caught her red hair and it looked damp in some places, like she just had a shower.
And then I saw her face.
It was covered in various scratches, sangre smeared on her face like the red lipstick she liked to wear, and there is this large one dragging down from the side of her neck down to her collarbone - like someone did it with a knife. Of course I start questioning her, like if this was to do with her mother and did they have a big fight or something? She said no, denying it was anything to do with that.
"Then who did this to you?" I said, walking up to her from the small kitchen and approached her. She backed away from my raised hand to her face. It was part sticky, part dry.
"It's- Look, it's no one."
Of course, I didn't buy it. It obviously wasn't no one, I mean there was an angry jagged line going down her throat! Like someone lashed out. It wasn't hard for me to come to a more likely outcome.
"Is it that chica again? I mean, she can't keep doing this to you!"
I had seen Alice only once, an explosion of rage in the body of a small blonde Duende. She had barged into my place, after Helena came over with large red marks on her neck like a collar and on her arms, called me a "walking piece of illegal shit" and told me I should be "deported back over the border where filth belongs" after shoving Helena out of my house. So it wasn't much of a stretch for me to think that things may have turned violent.
"No, no, it's NOT her! It's no one, okay?!" She shouted, slapping my hand away and rooted herself on the spot like she suddenly had become a statue, hands closed into fists.
Her outburst took me aback because she wasn't that type of person. I wouldn't put it past her to be angry or frustrated or whatever - but in the time that we were sleeping together, she seemed to be the embodiment of sexual attraction, smoldering and seductive - like Isla Fisher in that Leo DeCaprio movie. So raising her voice? It definitely spelled something was wrong.
She recognized her shouting was not quite like her, because her lips pressed into a mix of a pout and a frown and her voice dropped into a whisper, like she was afraid if she spoke any louder she might shout again.
She stepped towards me.
"Look, I didn't come here to talk. I came here to..." Her voice trailed off as she brought her lips to mine, and I never brought it up again that night.
And that was the last time I ever saw her - I think she left in the morning because she wasn't there when I woke up. We fucked and then due to being tired from fucking, we went to sleep. Her red hair was the last thing I ever saw of her but I will always remember that night.
And what she whispered before I drifted off to sleep. It was weird and random, and it was just one word. I passed it off as random shit you say when you're tired, as it never meant anything to me but it might mean something to you. The last thing I heard Helena say was "Nine".
Nueve.
And that's it.
I keep wondering, sometimes, if it was important. Maybe something to do with the scratches and sangre? Who knows. I always thought Alice had something to do with her disappearance, maybe she knows what Nine means? Or her bruja? I never bothered to ask.
Sometimes I wished I had, you know, man?
We were fuck buddies but Helena was still a person.
Enrique’s story reminded me about a side of Helena I wasn’t happy about. Helena was into Edge Play. Her partners for this kind of play often left her in need of stitches. I couldn’t bring myself to do such things with her, but I knew others who did. The waitress brought me two fingers of bourbon and I turned towards the bar to notice Tim.
Tim was the closest thing Helena had to a real boyfriend. She talked about him constantly. Seeing him at the bar as he talked to a group of college girls; I asked him to contribute to my oral history. He came to our table and after telling a rather inappropriate joke about a blonde woman in an elevator, he shared his story.
Story Three: Tim’s time with Helena
That girl was bad news. Not like the kind of news you hear when someone goes berserk with a gun, or there's a 9.0 earthquake off in some far off place. She was the kind of bad news that showed up on your doorstep, or in your ear on the telephone at 4AM. That type of bad news that arrived without any explanation and just exploded in your face - that kind of black streak where you often wondered if you should have gone right when you chose to go left. I've often thought of Helena as the eventual outcome - it didn't matter what direction I chose, she'd be there. If could go back in time and not meet her, I don't think it would be possible. I was destined to play in that black, or rather red streak. And...I loved it. I loved her.
I knew about the others - she had plenty of warm beds waiting for her, and I have to say, that on the flip, I was a male version of her. We were both players. Yet, I didn't care if she'd been out with Enrique, or even you Gabe.
Tim winked at Gabe.
I knew about you and everyone. We kept notes. She'd want to know my escapades and I'd ask about her. It was almost, some sort of competition between us. If she saw me cozying up to some girl at the bar, she'd rub her back against me and chat it up with him or her.
The only time I didn't approve of her conquests was that fucking flame of even worse news, Alice. That chick was no good. As you guys know, Alice has been dead a few years, but I swear to God, I catch her in the corner of my eyes sometimes. That glare of hers, she could bore holes into you. And she hated me. Hated that I had some kind of power with Helena. Did she know that we were just competitors in this human market of ours - that our bodies were the commodities that we sold to the highest bidders? Or did Alice just want all of Helena, and as you guys know - no one could have done that.
The last time I saw Helena, those jagged lines were not up and down her throat, but all over her back. As if she'd been dragged by a car, or slapped with a nineskin leather whip. Her eyes couldn't keep focus when I tried to talk her.
She put her arms around my neck, I knew she would squeeze me sooner or later. It was her thing - she loved to ride you, strangle you, she got off on how purple you'd get. I wasn't in the mood, I pushed her away.
"I'm not into it," I told her. There was a look of panic on her face, "Squeeze me instead," she said. I was in a mood that night, so I obliged. I squeezed really hard, as if I wanted to see her eyeballs pop out of her head. Something overwhelmed me, this feeling of...I don't know - you ever get an itch that you can't scratch? And when you finally do, you don't want to stop? It was like that, something swelled in me. And even though she grabbed my flexed wrists as I choked the living shit out of her, she caressed me.
I don't know how - but I stopped before I wound up killing her. She coughed, and I was struck with how insane she was, how insane I was. "I'm sorry," I said.
"Why?" She asked, "That's exactly what I wanted."
She was bad news - but maybe it was our combination. Maybe we were ammonia and chlorine? Fucking poison together. That was the last time I saw her.
Tim almost seemed to be taunting Gabe at this point. I took a sip of my bourbon and lit a cigarette as they stared each other down. In an attempt to break the tension I said,
“Well since you both have been so forthcoming, I’ll tell you about how I met Helena.”
Story Four: A match made in hell
I met Helena at rehab. We shared a drug of choice, Meth. I could tell that she had a checkered past, but then again so did I. We'd spend hours at a time commenting on the addicts we were locked up with. It only made sense that we'd meet up after we were released.
We hooked up from time to time. I had drugs and she was good company. We spent countless sleepless nights talking to each other in an amphetamine induced haze. She was my friend and occasional lover. I knew I wasn’t the only one. I knew she did things with other people that I couldn’t even begin to find arousing. Even still, I loved her.
One night Helena showed up about two days into a meth binge. Her rapid speech was hard to understand at first. After a few minutes she calmed down at said,
“I saw Alice today. I think she is following me.”
I replied,
“Alice is dead. You went to her funeral.”
She spent the next couple of hours in my arms rambling on through her involuntary jaw movements. At some point in the evening she sprung to her feet and said,
“I’m gonna go hit Tim up. I need to hurt right now.”
I sighed and said, “I know I’ll never be able to give you everything you need, but I wish you could stay longer.
Helena leaned up and kissed my on the cheek saying,
“See you around Jason.”
She walked out my door and I watched as her hips moved in that miniskirt that barely passed as clothing. I hoped I’d see her again, but that was the last I ever saw her.
I turned to Tim and said, “Did she ever show up at your place that night?”
Gabe interrupted, “Alice…dead? No way. No way. What are you talking about?”
Story Five: Gabe’s last night with Helena
I remember that last time - the last, last time - when we were sitting on the couch and her eyes were red and teary, but she wore a cute little smile. She was bare; her milky skin glowed and her ass hung in the air, streaked with angry red welts. Her index finger twirled around the loose grip of my belt, wrapped around her slender neck. “I want more daddy,” she said. “Why did you stop?”
“I can't hurt you. Not this much," I said. "Isn't this too much?"
She smirked at me like I was a weak piece of shit; like I wasn't being enough of a man that she needed. And she was right in a way - I knew about Alice, knew about the other men she was with. But it just…boiled my blood. I felt a new anger, an anger I didn't know I had in myself before. Before I knew it, I had my end of the belt coiled around my fist, and her head was pulled back and she gagged and drooled over her lips while her ass bounced against my hip.
"More. Please," she said.
I spanked her - hard - and she gave me a lovely little whimper; and then my palms glided their way from the small of her back, to the bumps of her shoulders, to her soft, soft cheeks. She moaned and purred, and then she yelped when I slapped her face.
"Please…more…please," she whimpered. "Alice, please-"
"-What the fuck?" I suddenly shouted. And just like that, the anger was gone.
My fingers slipped from the belt as I pulled myself out of her. She lay on the couch in a twitchy heap; her neck now circled by an angry ring of rashes. She sighed loudly, then flipped herself over, facing me. "Is that it?" she said. "Is that all you got?"
"My name is Gabe, you piece of shit," I said. "Not Alice. Gabe."
"Alice would have satisfied me better," she smirked. "She would have at least made me cum."
"Fuck. You." I said. "Get out of here."
And so I stood there, aghast, as she picked up her dress and her shoes and her ink-black stockings and put them on. I felt a welling of something - sadness? defeat? - as I watched her, ready to walk out on me once again. She muttered happily as she picked up her bag. She pulled out her phone. "It's Alice," she winked at me. "Baby?" she whispered to the receiver. "You're picking me up? I'm just at Gabe's. I'll meet you—oh, you're downstairs? I'll see you then."
She didn't even wave goodbye.
I walked towards my window. Took a look outside. I watched Helena, as she ran giddily in her high heels across the street. Under the flickering streetlights, next to the bus stop, was a silhouette of a woman in a simple black dress. It must be Alice. I couldn't quite make her out, but Helena looked happy to see her. I turned around before they could kiss.
It's funny, thinking about it now: she always asked for more, but I was always the one left wanting.
I felt sick.
A morose sense of morbidity clawing at my chest and dread tightening its grip around my throat as I could only swallow. I could feel the remnants of that shot of bourbon that I had burned down, lodged inside like tiny shards of fire, and when I swallowed they flared up, like skin scraping against yellowed sandpaper. It was a cycle of that for a few moments before I reached out for the nearest drink - a half-emptied glass of bourbon - and downed it for that momentary bliss.
I tried to think.
That lingering, nagging thought of Alice was the foremost question I had. Who had Gabe seen? The last last time he had seen her must've been at least a couple of months after Alice had died. In so many ways, what he had described sounded exactly like the spirited girl I had known but in so many others, it didn't sound like her. But it couldn't had been, because she was dead. Ten feet under dirt that had been dampened with rain, with only partially withered white flowers to show some colour on the otherwise dying grass. I remembered Helena had described the funeral procession - that's how she told me hated how fake people acted at them - and what happened afterwards. How they had lowered her coffin into the ground, with blonde little Alice with her black funeral dress inside. It was the prettiest thing she had ever seen, Helena told me, and it was the one thing she had done for the funeral.
"Gabe," I choked out, fixing my eyes on him with a sort of desperation, hoping that it must've been a trick. Like it must've been before Alice had died - and it wasn't like people came back to life. He must've been mistaken, it could've been one of the many girls she was fucking with at the time. Must've been.
I asked, "How long after did this take place after you'd seen Helena last?"
His brow creased in thought for a couple of seconds and they were the longest I had ever felt. It was like wading through syrup, sticking and clinging to like cigarette smoke. Time flowed till it came to a stop in those two seconds. I could barely feel the glass clenched tight in my hand, knuckles starkly white under the dim bar's lighting.
"'Round about... a few weeks afterwards." He paused, staring at me. "Why?"
I didn't feel it but I heard it shatter into splintered, broken pieces on the floor.
The sudden pop of the glass in the palm of my hand must have acted as a starter pistol for Tim who leaped over the small table and threw Gabe to the floor.
It was flurry of fists and feet, as the two of them pummeled one another.
"What did you do with her?" Tim screamed.
"Motherfucker..." Gabe replied through gritted teeth, as he twisted Tim's arms underneath his back and balled his fist into a boiled knot.
Gabe struck Tim in the face again, and again as chips of porcelain foamed out of his bloody, misshapen mouth.
I felt a coil of warm around my wrist, as a glass shard stuck into the meat of my palm. But I felt nothing, heard nothing - only clicks followed by other clicks. My thoughts were stacking into an impossible game of jenga, as it would topple over at any moment.
"Break that up, goddammit!" yelled one of the bartenders. The bouncers pushed through a crowd of cheering woman. Everyone in the bar watched the fight and booed as the bouncers broke it up. Gabe and Tim were pulled apart.
The fight was over - Tim's face was in shambles, and Gabe's hands were shredded to hamburger. A knot rose over Gabe's eye.
Gabe locked eyes with me, "He had it coming. For a long time."
They were escorted out of the bar.
But the clicks in my head continued - Alice was dead, but had anyone been to her funeral? I, like Tim, had heard she died.Did anyone know how? Was it possible that it was all a ruse? And was it possible that this would lead us closer to finding out what happened to Helena?
By then an ambulance had arrived, and I didn't want to stick around to make a statement. I felt bad about it but I left Tim to foot the tab. After Gabe's beatdown, I'm sure that will be a drop in the bucket compared to the cost of fixing his face.
On my walk home, I tried to put everything together. Helena had a revolving door of lovers, each one was abused, or abused her to her liking, and yet the center of the spiderweb was Alice.
Who was Alice exactly? I had only seen glimpses of her. A willowy figure with heavy eyeliner and a vicious glare. But then again, I always saw her from afar - and did I ever see her and Helena together?
Click - Click - Click -- the motor in my head was turning and turning, but I was running out of gas. My head pounded - was she dead? was she alive?
And as I turned in for the night and closing the blinds to block out the soon-to-be-arriving daylight - I could swear there was a black silhouette standing somewhere behind my pepper tree. I was sure it was just an exhausted hallucination, but the thought nagged me as I turned into bed. Alice, all roads to Helena go through Alice.
Clicking off the light, I nearly jumped as I saw a shadow move from behind the blinds.
It was Helena.
She said in an almost monotone voice, "I think what you're doing is sweet, but I'm gonna have to ask you to include one more story."
I took a step back. She took a step forward. My eyes darted around the room for something that could be used as a weapon. Under normal circumstances I would have been relieved to have seen her. There was something off about her. She seemed darker than before. I felt like one of those rabbits that accidentally hopped out in front of a mountain lion. My fight or flight response had been triggered and Helena was the cause.
She didn't at all seem like the quirky girl I'd spent all that time with. Everything about her seemed predatory. It was like having a conversation with a snake about to strike. She motioned for us to sit on the sofa and I hesitantly joined her. I didn't want to set her off. For the first time in all of the time that I had known her; I was afraid of her.
She pulled a cigarette from a tin case in her purse and lit it with a match. After taking a long drag and blowing out a smoke ring, she said,
"An oral history huh?"
I nodded.
She continued, "I've only been missing for two years. Given up hope already? Figures."
I cleared my throat and replied,
"You once told me you hated how fake everyone was at funerals. I figured I'd talk to the people you spent the most time with and get their stories. That way you'd be remembered for who you were."
She laughed and said,
"What's my middle name Jason? Where did I go to school? How old was I when I had my first kiss? Why did I kill Alice? You don't know me Jason. Neither does Gabe or Enrique."
I replied, "What about Tim?"
Her expression changed to one of disgust and anger and she said,
"What about Tim?"
I responded, "He made it sound like you two were close."
She scoffed,
"Tim is a narcissist prick who took a naive bookworm and twisted her into his personal sex puppet. You think I enjoyed being subjected to his twisted ego? At first, maybe. I thought I was in love and I wanted to please him. By the end of it all it was just something I did because I didn't see any other options. Fuck Tim. When I'm done here, he's next."
I said hesitantly, "When you're done here?"
She laughed again. It set me on edge. She stood up and walked over to the kitchen. I moved towards the door and she said,
"Not yet Jason. We aren't done talking."
I froze.
She came back with two beers and popped off the tops with a BIC lighter. She handed me one and took a sip from hers. I said, "Thanks."
She leaned against the door and said,
"I've decided to let you finish this story."
I nearly spit up my beer as I said, "Why?"
She leaned in so close I could feel her breath on my face and all but whispered,
"Because I want you to write MY ending."
I moved to the kitchen table and pulled out a pen and paper. She smiled and sat across from me. She removed a small pistol from her jacket and placed it on the table. She took another sip from her beer and said, "Just so we're clear."
I started taking notes as she started,
"After I killed Alice, I was worried I'd get caught. One day I just disappeared. I stopped logging into my social media profiles and got a job in another city working under the table. I actually have a decent apartment. Then out of nowhere I'm stalking your Facebook profile on a dummy account I used to watch the old gang and I see your call for former friends and lovers of mine. It piqued my interest."
She smirked and continued,
"I dyed my hair blonde and came back to town. I've been watching you guys for about a week or so now. I almost blew it when Gabe saw me in the distance. Then I saw you guys at the bar. I listened from a few tables away as you reminisced about me. It was sweet."
"I caught Enrique just outside of his apartment. He was so happy to see me that he didn't notice the knife in my hand. I cut him from ear to ear and left him bleeding on the sidewalk. He was always so quick with me. I gave him a quick death. Gabe. Well, Gabe was in the emergency room. I dressed myself in scrubs and put on a surgical mask. He didn't recognize me, but was quick to comment on my ass as I entered the exam room. He was such a reluctant sadist."
She grinned from ear to ear and continued,
"I gave him a huge dose of insulin and then stood there looking him in the eyes as he died. He wouldn't hurt me unless I begged. It was so fun to watch him die. The last thing he heard me say was his name."
She stopped for a moment and picked up the pistol. I looked her in the eyes and said,
"But why me? I never did anything to hurt you."
She lowered the pistol for a moment and sighed.
"Jason, you're a good guy. You tried to help me. We'd get geetered out of our minds and fuck like bunnies, but you never took advantage of me. Then you got clean. You tried to help me and I wasn't having it. You'd be pleased to know I've been sober for more than a year. Even still, you weren't there when I needed you the most."
I interrupted, "What? I've always been there when you called me."
She cackled and said, "Oh really? Where were you when I called you the day after the funeral? You weren't there for me then. I called you a hundred times and it just went to voicemail. You could have saved me. Instead you were probably busy writing in your journal you hipster piece of shit!"
I looked toward the floor and replied, "You're right. I relapsed and ended up in the hospital. I had a heart attack that night. Go ahead and do it. My weakness resulted in this, I'm sorry."
A tear fell from my eye and then another. I cried until I saw drops fall on the legal pad in front of me. Helena leaned forward and kissed me on the forehead. She stood up and said,
"You look miserable Jason. I can tell you're genuinely sorry. Tell ya what. I'm gonna go give Tim exactly what he deserves and then I'll come back here and we'll settle our debts. You're so sexy when you're suffering."
With that she turned and walked out my door.
Helena Smith was a girl from Astoria with aspirations of being an actress. She lived on the edge of society and rejected most of what we considered the unwritten social contract. Her life was spent in the pursuit of love and pleasure. Helena Smith is dead. The thing that I met that night had no remaining trace of the vulnerable girl I had grown to love. I can only imagine what she did to Tim.
I'm posting this in memory of the girl I loved and those who died in her memory. I reckon it won't be long before she comes for me.
I deserve this.
