Welcome back #greysessed fans! I hope you are enjoying my posts, and that you are caught up in reading them. At least read the last post, “The Boy I used to know” so that you understand what has been going on. I am not sure how all of you are handling your Greysession, but over here it seems like I can only handle one obsession at a time. But when a new greysession has taken over your thoughts, time, sleep, and overall welfare of your household~something’s gotta give. Well, for me it has been the once-loyal and loving relationship with Jakey. Yes, Jacob Black from Twilight.
Now, I’ll have you know that it didn’t start out all “hearts and flowers”, excuse the steal from Christian but there is bound to be a crossover of sorts with these things. When Twilight first emerged, I was not a Twihard from the get go. In fact, I hardly read. Ok, honestly I never read. I am a true magazine whore and still am. My bathroom is stacked with shiny magazines galore ranging from Rachel Ray to Us Weekly and every Twilight memorabilia keepsake magazine. Don’t know why I didn’t read much, but can’t imagine life without books now! Who turned me on to Twilight was my partner in crime, Kelly. Our daughters went to preschool together and that is how our friendship was born. She kept telling me to read the books and that I would love them but I wouldn’t budge. I actually saw the movie first, then afterwards was like, “Hand them babies over Sister.” And read them all in a week. I turned Twihard as fast as Jake can phase on the fly.
But my relationship with Jake did not flourish until New Moon. Until then I was all about Edward. That was until we realized that there was a $4 movie theatre about 25 minutes from our house and that New Moon was playing there. Kelly and I started going 1-2 times a week to see New Moon. And maybe after the 15th or so time (yes, you read right and you’d be there too if you could escape your kids for a night for $4) and for the record I will tell you that we probably saw New Moon about 40+ times. And I say that loud and proud. So obviously from previous posts, I like to take a passion and run with it. Really run…like marathon run. Tight like this peeps (fingers crossed), right? We all need a happy place and at that time is was called Beltway 6. Ok, so after the umpteenth viewing, there was that moment that bitchy Bella says, “don’t make me choose because it will be him. It’s always been him.” and poor Jakey, who has saved her dumb ass more times than Ana bites her lower lip, just stands there needing a group hug. And you can’t help but think, “geez I just love that kid.” How can you not love him? And for the record-I love,love, love Edward in the books and generally speaking. But for god’s sakes, can he look any worse in New Moon and Eclipse? That’s another whole blog in itself and I don’t want to go all Joan Rivers on the red carpet here. Dang it I have to just say one thing and I’ll move on…green hoodie. Seriously costume department????? Like Edward friggin Cullen would ever wear a green “I rushed here as soon as I could but was studying while wearing this horrendous looking sweatshirt.” And the dumb hair to boot. All you Edward lovers have now unfollowed me, but c’mon you were thinking it too;)
So ever since our marathon run at Beltway 6, Kelly and I have loved that sweet wolf. More than I care to share with you until the background check from Welch has been approved;) Below is the continuation of emails that tell the story of Jacobgate and (spoiler alert!) how eventually he and Christian cross each others paths. xoxo

Are you serious with the shouty capital reference? Don’t feel like arguing with you, or whatever it is we are doing. Just miss ya…sending you a pic and a little music reference to make you smile and think of me:)
” Now and then I think of when we were together. Like when you said you felt so happy you could die…..but you didn’t have to cut me off. Make out like it never happened and that we were nothing….Now you’re just somebody that I used to know.” (Gotye)
No, that isn’t my Christian Grey breakup song. That is the song that seems to be on the radio the exact time I get in my car. Every. Single. Time. And do I seem a bit bothered by it? The answer is yes. Because it reminds both Kelly and I about the boy we used to know and love. And how we somehow lost him, quickly. It will come on the radio, and that moment of silence enters the swagger wagon. Then we will just give a knowing glance to each other and then quickly change it to the Fifty Shades soundtrack. But it lingers-that longing feeling that we aren’t quite sure what to do with so it sits on a shelf. Not the shelf that holds a certain series of books and memorabilia to match. But the personal shelf we carry with us inside that weighs more than a four-book collection. This shelf holds a series of emotion ranging from denial, sadness, depression, and acceptance. So what is this loss Kelly and I have been dealing with you ask? It is the love of a certain “hot” dog… and his name is Jacob Black. Yes, Jakey as we call him, was once the center of our universe and we dropped him quicker than Christian Grey can drop his drawers. But perhaps I need to share in what’s become of my relationship with Jakey. And in doing this, it means to let you in on some personal information. But we are tight, right fellow greysessed girls? So what happens online stays online, right? Good:) So let’s go back to the beginning of the end (or is it?)….

It was great seeing you in LaPush and so glad you got to finally see the reservation. My dad loved you and Kelly and says you are welcome back any time! ummm, don’t quite know how to word this but is everything cool with us? You seemed a bit distracted while out here but maybe I am just reading into things too much. Gotta run-Billy needs a ride to Bella’s house. -Jakey __________________________________________________________________________ From: Michele Subject: re:hello? Date: March 31 2012 19:27 To: Jacob Black Hi, sorry for the delayed response. It’s been sort of crazy since I’ve been back from Forks/Seattle. I had a great time seeing you on the rez and finally meeting Billy. Loved hanging with Quil, Embry, and especially Seth. Things are good between us. I’ve just been distracted I guess. I have been reading this book series called, “Fifty Shades of Grey” and its had me up at night while out west. But no worries, we are good my favorite wolf;) xo, Michele _________________________________________________________________________________ From: Jacob Black Subject: Seattle???? Date: March 31 2012 20:02 To: Michele As the heading reads, Seattle?????? you never mentioned Seattle when you came to Forks. Why is that? What’s the deal? Explain please. Does it have to do with these books? I am not feeling like your #1 wolfy right now. -Jake ______________________________________________________________________ From: Michele Subject: Keep your fur on Date: March 31 2012 20:16 To: Jacob Black Like my heading says, KEEP YOUR FUR ON! ←and those are what we say in CG’s world, SHOUTY CAPITALS! You are still my #1 wolfy and Kelly’s too for that matter. nothing to worry about. We just made a little side trip to Seattle. No big deal. If you really must know, we just wanted to see about a certain building. It’s called the Escala and yes it’s from the books. We didn’t realize it actually existed and just wanted to see it in person. So are we good? Please don’t get upset, it’s not like I am getting “obsessive” over these books or anything. Twilight forever babes:) Talk soon, xo Michele _________________________________________________________________________ So that’s a glimpse of how things started. And there is much more to that story. If you are interested in seeing how this all plays out, please let me know and I will continue to share with you the dramatic love triangle that has me torn between furry feet and twitchy palms. Comments welcome, and as always thanks for your support. xo
