Auntie Cassie”s Ranch :Fast forward to 18

Note : Due to circumstances beyond my control. I have to skip to when we were 18 years old. This is a collaboration with Laura (your_cuz_loves_u and me epileptude_designs) she is helping fill in some blanks because my journals are at Aunties ranch.

Oh one thing for the cliffhanger on my last post. It was a vibrator under her shirt.

We are now 18 at this point, I had become proficient playing guitar and by that time had become lead guitarist in a local band. I had grown my hair down to my shoulders. Wore contacts lenses and yes even a little make up because I was a hair band rocker wanna be. It was the 80’s after all. Nothing like Dee Snyder though. I have a picture of myself still of what I looked like then. I might post it sooner or later.

I had missed a year of visiting Auntie Cassie and when I arrived she didn’t recognize me until she got a good look at me.

“Ricky ? Is that you? Oh my god, baby boy, just look at you!” Auntie said as she came running to me. “Your hair! It’s, it’s..”

“Long and I need a haircut right?” I finished her sentence. “NO! You don’t need a haircut, but you dyed it. A full grown man with a job and playing in a rock band. We are all proud of you baby boy. I remember when you were a scared little 8 year old boy afraid to be…”

“Nude?” I interrupted. “Auntie, you Scott, Sharon and Amy have been so good to me over the years. I don’t think I will ever forget it. I went from a little boy bullied in school to now and I am about to graduate from high school with honors because you all believed in me when no one else did. Working on the old girl with Scott made me gave me self confidence that I can do things even when others didn’t think I could because of my epilepsy. Oh by the way, this Alex he plays keyboards and bass guitar in our band.” I said.

“You still tote that blue guitar around? Scott and Marissa still laugh about how you got that discount to this very day. OH yeah, Scott and Marissa are engaged. Now that he is home from France a full fledged fancy pants chef they are living together. Sharon finished nursing school and is married to Toby. Amy is in her second year at college studying Journalism and living with her girlfriend..Not her girl friend ..Her GIRLFRIEND..” Auntie said.

“Ahhh, I gotcha.” I smiled. “Well they all deserve to be happy. And as for my blue guitar, hold on.” I turned to Alex and said “Hey Alex, pop the trunk,” Alex popped open the trunk I reached in and pulled out old blue, my blue acoustic guitar and threw the strap on my shoulder and pulled out a hard guitar case and a little portable Marshall amp. “Yeah I brought ole blue’s little sister with me. Alex would stay a bit but he is running late, ” I said.

“Yes ma’am, Ricky has told me everything about his stays at here over the years. I can see why Ricky loves it here. Huge place ya got here. Pretty Fu…fine place..Ricky warned me about you not liking swearing. I almost slipped, and honestly if it were anyone else I wouldn’t have cared. But Ricky said if I did he would kick my hind quarters. ‘Sides, I have nothing but respect for him after all he had been through over the past two years..and he is still here. Any way ma’am I have to get going, Ma’ and pop are waiting for me. It’s another hour’s drive for me.” Alex said.

“It was a pleasure meeting you Alex, on your way home stop here and have a meal with us and tell us all the trouble he has caused over the past year…..THAT HE HASN”T CALLED ME IN A YEAR EITHER…” Auntie said.

Alex drove off and I looked around, and saw her, my blue eyed beauty Laura. She came out running to me almost knocking me down. She had grown into a beautiful woman. I held her in my arms not wanting to let go. And kissed her a long passionate kiss in front of Auntie. By this time the cat had been out of the bag, My brothers and sisters, mom and dad knew about us.

“RICKY! Laura yelled, and held me tight, You had us so scared when we heard about that bad seizure. When I heard it almost killed you I freaked out and wanted to steal the car and visit you in the hospital. I thought you were going to die. Don’t you ever die with out my permission” Laura said between sobs.

“I’m alright sweet stuff, I alright. I totally missed you. I think about you all the time. I even told the nurses I had to hurry and get out of the hospital. But my Neurologist had set up so many appointments with an epileptologist. Trying to find the triggers for my seizures, c.t scans, m.r.i, Week in the hospital attached to an E.E.G the sleep deprivation. Pardon my language Auntie…but it was a bitch.” I said.

“I’m with Laura, don’t you ever do that to us again. Scott, Amy, Sharon and me were praying. Marissa was going to church lighting candles for you, praying. Constant calls. Amy let it out and told your mom about you and Laura. Amy is going to be here soon, along with Samantha, her girlfriend. Sharon and Toby will be here tomorrow. They have a favor to ask of you.” Auntie said.

” Anything for them, anything at all. Can we get inside? It’s getting cold and I just want to sit down and catch up.” I said.

Auntie grabbed my bag, Laura grabbed my electric guitar and amp. Walking inside the house was like returning home. I missed it. We went into the family room and caught up on family gossip. Auntie stood up and lead us into the kitchen and the smell of beef stew was in the air making my stomach grumble. I hadn’t eaten since breakfast and it was almost dinner time.

After dinner we cleared the table, Laura and I did the did the dishes and put left overs away. I looked at Laura and said “I need a shower , care to join me sweet stuff?” We walked to my room first putting away my bags and stripping off our clothes and headed to the bathroom…
