Fear of Flying

Ch 7 - Like Shards Of Broken Glass

By Lattelady

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

What he had once hoped for the Flock, he now gained for himself alone; he learned to fly, and was not sorry for the price that he had paid. From Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Nico read through the information Tony brought him. “Jesus, what happened to this guy?” He examined Danny Martello’s complete financial records. “Are you sure this is correct?” He asked the older, balding man sitting beside him. Read more...Collapse )

Nico And Me And...Uh...Her

Rating : G
Disclaimer : Onyx is from The Nico Files. Not sure if that makes him canon, but it makes him the property of by Necessary Roughness. I don’t own him or any of the characters. I just like to let them out to play.

Nico And Me And...Uh...Her



By Lattelady

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Onyx’s ears twitched. The almost nonexistent rumble of the elevator woke him from an evening nap. He was sure it was slight vibrations in the building that only he could sense, instead of an actual noise, but it always meant the same thing. It was a signal that his human was home.

Fear of Flying

Ch 6 - Shadow Boxing

By Lattelady

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

”Most gulls don’t bother to learn more than the simplest facts of flight – how to get from shore to food and back again. For most gulls, it is not flying that matters, but eating” – From Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Nico leaned against his Lincoln, tapping a file folder against his thigh. His eyes were trained on Dr. Santino’s car as Xeno negotiated the right turn onto Bleecker Street and it disappeared from view. He was left alone in the garage under his building with a list of errands to attend to as he stared at the rain dancing on passing traffic.Read more...Collapse )

Fear of Flying

Ch 5 - Turning and Turning and Turning

By Lattelady

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

”If our friendship depends on space and time, then when we finally overcome space and time, we've destroyed our own brotherhood. But overcome space, and all you have left is Here. Overcome time and all you have left is Now. And in the middle of Here and Now, don't you think that we might see each other once or twice? ” – From Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

After an hour of intense questioning, Dani was blurry eyed and exhausted from digging for information that kept slipping away from her, before her thoughts were fully formed. “I’m sorry it’s like trying to make sense out of a jigsaw puzzle made of fog.” She rubbed her temples with her fingers hoping to shake something else loose.

Note: This story is AU from here on in. The information on Feng Shui is the way I understand it. My go to book on the subject is Feng Shui Your Life by Jayme Barrett. Given Nico’s calm, uncluttered character it seems a fitting practice, especially since it is hinted that he may have had a life of turmoil in the past. For those not familiar with Feng Shui, it is not a religion but a way of handling the energy that flows around us for a more tranquil life.
Enjoy!!

Fear of Flying

Ch 4 - The Center Cannot Hold

By Lattelady

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“Why is it,” Jonathan puzzled, “that the hardest thing in the world is to convince a bird that he is free, and that he can prove it for himself if he’d just spend a little time practicing? Why should that be so hard?” – From Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“I know you need more information but could I have some coffee first? I don’t do well in the morning without caffeine and ahhh...this isn’t exactly an ordinary morning.” Dani knew the only way to get her life back under control was to do as Nico asked. They had to rehash the night before. He would help her dig for memories of what had happened. It wasn’t going to be pleasant but it was necessary. Read more...Collapse )

Fear of Flying

Ch 3 - Things Fall Apart

By Lattelady

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“As he sank low in the water, a strange hollow voice sounded within him. There’s no way around it. I am a seagull…I must forget this foolishness. I must fly home to the Flock and be content as I am, as a poor limited seagull.” – From Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Nico waited until he heard water running in the shower, before he went into his bedroom. He quietly turned the doorknob and entered the adjoining bath. After gathering his hair dryer and brush, he put them on the vanity along with Dani’s purse that he’d brought with him. Thankfully she was still in the shower and he was able to leave undetected. The last thing she needed right now was to be caught in a vulnerable position by a man. Closing the door behind him he picked up the clothes she had tossed on his bed. Read more...Collapse )

Ch 2 - Lost But Not Alone

By Lattelady

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

“The price of being misunderstood, he thought. They call you devil or they call you god.” – From Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

4:58 AM

Dani Santino woke slowly to a pounding head, nausea, and a light, vaguely familiar scent of spiced lime coming from her pillowcase.

“Ohhh,” she moaned and forced her eyes open.

“Easy, you’re safe.” Nico Careles leaned forward in his chair to tunnel his fingers through her hair, pushing it away from her face. Read more...Collapse )

Pairing: Nico/Dani
Disclaimer: I don’t own Necessary Roughness. I simply like to let the characters out to play at times
Beta: Olfactory-Ventriloquism – any errors are mine because I can’t help tweaking things.
Timeline: How I would have ended A Load of Bull, without Matt.
Note: This is dedicated to all the women who work in male dominated professions and don’t use tricks and games to get ahead. There was something about the incident with the reporter that bothered me.
Fear of Flying Chapter 9 had to be sent back to my beta for a second go round and will be posted when I get it back.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It was almost two thirty in the morning when Dani gave up the attempt to sleep in her lonely bed. She did the rounds, quietly opening first Ray Jay’s and then Lindsey’s bedroom door. A smile crept across her face as she watched each child sleep. This was an old habit, something she’d done since her son had been a few months old. When her daughter had come along, Santino had included her as well. She was convinced that God made children adorable in their sleep to prevent child abuse, because no matter how badly they behaved when awake, in slumber they captured a parent’s heart.Read more...Collapse )

Life In Shades Of Grey

Disclaimer: I don't own Grey's Anatomy or there would have been no reason to write this story
Spoiler: Season finale
Pairing: Mark/Lexie mainly, but there are touches of Derek/Mere and Owen/Cristina
Rating: G
Note: I'm tired of TV medicine. I'm tired of having my emotions jerked around for the sake of ratings. I will always be a Mark and Lexie fan and have watched my last Grey's Anatomy. I started writing this a while ago and have added to it between other things.
This story is dedicated to Lexie Grey, the actress who played her, and all the wonderful things that her fans should have been allowed to experience.

Enjoy, or not?

Life In Shades Of Grey

Shades of grey

By Lattelady
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Did you say it? 'I love you; I don't ever want to live without you; you changed my life.' Did you say it? – By Meredith Grey
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Sometime during their first night in the mountains, the pilot died.

That same night Mark Sloan developed a high fever and began slipping in and out of consciousness. Every few minutes he'd lean his head toward the woman sitting beside him and mumble, "I love you, Lex". His unconscious mind seemed to be writing it in indelible ink, on post-it, after post-it, and sticking them on the walls of his memory, so it would never be forgotten, left behind, or overlooked.
