Updates for April 1stLooks like my April Fools joke went over pretty well. I was quite surprised to see the response, honestly! Was it the most original prank in the books? Absolutely not, but considering that I usually ignore April Fools Day and that people STILL believed it, I think it's alright. Sometimes the oldest jokes are the best and it's not like this was a contest trying to outdo everyone around me. Just having some fun for a change, which is something I need to do more often.Updates for April 1st in Personal More Like This
Also, it shows how many people actually followed the link. Anyone who read the journal and followed the link to the trolololo song would've known it was a joke. But it seems a LOT of people didn't bother doing that, hehe.
Speaking of April Fools though, did you know that it was 4 years ago today that I began the Alex Ze Pirate web series? April 1st, 2008 was the day I began posting short one page gags involving my pirate characters on SheezyArt. It's kinda hard to believe it's only been 4 years as so much has happened since

Many moments later, seemed like hours, I was sitting in the hospital waiting room with Feliciano, Antonio and ____________. My brother was whimpering while we waited to get the results from the doctors about the condition Grandpa was in. I noticed ___________ was looking over at me a few times, I felt like her stare was just piercing through to my heart. She was sitting with Antonio and I watched him comfort her but she still kept looking at me. The only sounds in the room was my fratello's whimpering.
"I'll be right back," I stood up from my chair and headed out of the room. I had to get out that room. It's bad enough we're all upset about Grandpa, but it's worse timing to be in an awkward situation with my angel. I closed the door behind me and took a deep breath. Then I heard the door open again and standing behind me was the person I expected it to be.
"Romano ." ___________ said sounding concerned. I turned around to face her. "Or is your name Lovino?"
"This isn't a good time

My train ride was quicker than expected. Having my ipod and my phone really helped make time go quicker. I kept thinking of Alfred the whole time. The time I got off the train and walked to the apartment I was going to commute at, I thought of Alfred. The time I unpacked my things and made my apartment room very homey, I thought of Alfred. The time I walked one block to the school to register for my classes, I thought of Alfred. I thought about if he was happy where he was and if he thought of me. I took a deep breath and decided to tour around the school myself. I saw many other students around, looking at their schedules and maps and a lot of them were socializing. It was a nice looking school, but taking the time to describe it in my mind would have taken up my time for thinking of Alfred. I stopped by an outdoor patio/quad area that sat right in the middle of all the buildings. I noticed in the center of it all was a tall cherry tree fenced with park benches around it. I had taken

Three years later.
___________ broke up with Antonio just six months ago. Most of me felt relieved because of course my feelings for her never changed. But she hasn't been very happy. It was her choice to end it with Antonio because she wasn't happy with him. But why is my angel still unhappy? I was pondering this while I laid on my bed in my bedroom. Debating whether or not I should finally call and ask her what the hell's going on with her. I picked up my cell phone and just when I was about to dial, it rang.
"Hello?" I grumbled.
"Lovino can I come over?" I heard ___________'s voice. She sounded different from her usual bubbly voice.
"Sure bella " I sighed then she hung up. "That was easy," I put my phone on my nightstand and began waiting. Moments later I heard a light knock on my bedroom door. "Come in," I said.
"Lovino?" __________ poked her head out after opening the door slightly. She smiled a little as she made her way fully into the bedroom and closed the door behind her.

Ten years later. Life for me has been the same as it was back then, before I knew ___________. No close friends. No recognition from Grandpa. Everyone comparing me to Feliciano. But I have something that's new. Guilt. It lingers in my heart for leaving my angel behind so long ago. This damn world. I just want to be happy like I was then. I haven't found anyone as special and wonderful as my beautiful angel ____________. Everyday since I last saw her, I think of her and always wonder where she is and what's she's doing.
It's summer now, before my last year of high school and I am glad to be finally reaching it. Grandpa, fratello and I have moved three times over these ten years until finally, last year, settling at the school my Spaniard cousin attended. His name is Antonio. He's a cheeky tomato loving freak but he's not totally annoying all the time. Since you know he actually pays attention to me. I think I'm closer to him than I am to Feliciano, which makes me a little sad.

Graduation day was just around the corner and I was very anxious. Alfred had gotten a few acceptance letters from colleges that are willing to let him in on football scholarships. I know I wanted to go to a good school to learn business and get a business degree because I want to someday open my own family restaurant. I had really hoped in finding a school Alfred and I could both attend so we don't have live far apart. But enough worrying about that. I just want to get out of high school.
It's the last weekend before we finally graduate and me and Al are chilling out at the park tossing a football around. We we're talking about college a little bit but we mostly laughed and joked about all the weird people and teachers we weren't going to miss after leaving high school. The cute blonde tossed me the football and I barely caught it. I looked down at it for a while and chuckled. Next thing I knew I was suddenly tackled to the ground by the blue eyed moron.
"Gah! Alfred!" I squirmed as th

The summer ended way too quickly. It was only a matter of minutes before Alfred and I we're going to part ways. I was at least thankful he didn't plan on going into the military. Which seemed like something he would do since he still had this impression he was a hero. Alfred, his parents, me and my mom were at the train station and my train was first. I stood in front of Alfred just looking at him one last time before I got onto the train. My mom hugged me tightly and kissed my forehead before she passed me over to Alfred. He pulled me into his arms and I pressed my face into his chest one last time for a long time.
"I'll email you everyday," he whispered softly into my ear as he strokes my hair firmly with his big hand. "And I'll call you and text you all the time." I was almost crying but I wanted to be strong for him.
"Ok, I'll look forward to each one," I looked up at my hero. He smiled and kissed me very passionately.
" ___________ .just take care of yourself ok?" Alfred

As soon as I thought I was going to die, my eyes shot open to see Alfred's body above mine. He was performing CPR but he stopped as soon as I awoke. I coughed and noticed we were on the lakeshore. I was trembling and I heard Alfred speak to me but I couldn't understand anything.
"__________ are you ok? Please be ok?" Alfred had said with an extremely frightful look on his face. He wasn't wearing his glasses so I could really see the worry and fear in his eyes. I haven't seen him like this since the last time I nearly drowned. But this time he was actually speaking to me and he was the one that saved me. I sat up slowly and Alfred hugged me tightly. His wet arms around my back and his wet bare chest close to me. "Thank God," he sound relieved and keeping back tears, "I thought I lost you this time." I couldn't say anything I just felt so scared still and I could feel my body tremble more as Alfred stopped the hug to look at my face. He wiped water and my hair out of my face and tried sm

"Lovino?" I heard a small voice speak to me as I exited the room. I looked down to see my angel ____________ looking up at me with a look of concern on her face.
"Si bella?" I replied calmly. I was starting to feel worried about the look she was giving me.
"Can we talk? Now that everyone's calmed down?" She bit her lip and hoped for my answer.
"Ok ___________." I nodded and lowered my head. I got a weird feeling about what we're about to talk about.
"Now that all the drama is over," ___________ started speaking to me. "I want to have another talk about us."
"U-us?" I gulped.
"Yeah, I mean well just tell me the truth are you jealous of me and Antonio being together?"
"Uh " I blushed a little and scratched the back of my head nervously. "Well so what if I am? He's my cousin but I want you to be safe " I crossed my arms.
"I see well you like me right?"
"I already told you how I feel about you, idiota."
"I right well I think we sho

The next day around lunch time. I wanted talk to ____________ very badly. But she got a waitress job while I was in the kitchen helping my brother with handling the food. The only time I got to see my angel was when she came to pick up orders. I glanced at the clock on the wall of the kitchen ever 5 minutes to check when I could finally go on break with ____________. I made sure we had the same break so I could finally get the chance to talk to her and tell her how I felt.
Finally it was about damn time for my break. I rushed over to the employee break room. Inside was a love seat, a refrigerator, a desk and few scattered chairs. We only get a 30 minute break so I better make this damn count and worth something. I was the first to get here but not too long after I arrived I heard a squeak behind me. Turning to see who was behind me, I finally locked in a stare with the most beautiful (eye color) eyes I've ever seen.
"Oh hi!" ___________ gave me a little wave as she headed to the refrig

Before I knew it, Alfred and I had finally graduated from high school. The ceremony was long and boring at times but who really wants to hear me talk about the whole thing? Well anyway, we both decided on not going to grad night since we didn't really want to spend all those hours around a bunch of people we barely liked, well at least who I didn't like. Instead we went to McDonalds, got food to go and ended back at Alfred's backyard. We sat across from each other, literally poolside, eating our burgers and drinking our cold milkshakes. The sky was already getting dark and all the party lights were lit up around us. It was pretty romantic considering we were sitting in summer clothes around a pool and eating fast food.
"This is totally cool," Alfred began speaking, with his mouth full of hamburger, "we should have done this more often." I giggled as I drank my (favorite flavor) milkshake. I was wearing my own (favorite color) tank top and denim shorts while Alfred wore a blue T-shirt w
