V-Day

Hey everyone, it's V-Day, and normally on this day I will go on and on about how utter crap it is. But I'll have to save that for next year. I have a driving lesson today and Jessie was supposed to be coming down today she had to change her plans. I don't mind really, though I suppose we'll know that for sure if I subconsciously try to crash the car. Instead I will share with you a story about something that my first girlfriend gave me. She was the closest thing to a Valentines I've had I guess. PS I'm not bitter about V-Day because I've never had a valentines.

So when I asked for ideas last Saturday Fang suggested I take something in my room and personalize it. Give it a history and give it feelings. The only thing I could possibly do that with would be my wolf teddy. So here is his story.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hello, the name's Zevi. She gave it to me, She gave me to him too. I'm told it means “my wolf” so I guess it's quite appropriate isn't it? Though it wasn't that appropriate when for a brief period of time He adopted the name. I come from rather humble beginnings myself. When they found me I was living inside some sort of machine where in exchange for shiny objects the people were given control of a claw that would descend and snatch us up, were you lucky enough. It wasn't too bad, at least I had people to talk to.

Then one day they came in. It was obvious they were in love, they were inseparable and He was holding Her hand. He was walking slightly in front of Her too, like He was trying to protect Her. The boy spotted me and He was instantly smitten. I felt kind of bad for His ladyfriend actually. Here He was with Her but He was falling for me too. I think it's a different kind of love, humans are fickle things. Anyway, it turned the lady was quite a master of the crane, and She was able to grab me in just one go. I can tell you that is a rare thing. After I dropped out (which hurt by the way, it was the main downside of living in that machine I guess) She handed me to him, and I took up residence in His pocket. Though my head was sticking out, so at least I wasn't in the darkness. He's terrible at naming things and so He asked Her to name me, and She suggested Zevi. The name stuck and it has since.

That was four years ago though. Despite how in love they seemed to be they fell apart a few months after. Normally when a couple breaks up they reassure the children that it had nothing to do with them. He is yet to do this with me though. I don't see what I could have done though. After that happened He kind of forgot about me, and I've been in some dark places, and been left on the floor and become a bit tattered, but He found me recently and we have become friends again. Though sometimes I can still end up on the floor. Plus I am still kind of tattered. I don't know if I'd survive a journey through a washing machine, and I'm in no hurry to find out. I know though that I am an ever present and eternal reminder of those times, and of His woman, and I hope I don't become a burden on him, though I think He cares about me too much to let that happen. He's a big fan of wolves, and has probably thought He loves me more than He loved Her. Like I said, humans are fickle. Anyway, right now we have a decent relationship. I know that if I do end up on the floor, He'll get to me eventually, He's just very scattered right now. I even slept with His niece a few times when She was upset and scared, but He's said He'll never give me to Her. Though I suppose it is a sign that He does like me, and that He considers me able to keep him safe and warm. Or at least, He thought I could do it for Her. Given how She slept and how attached She became, I guess it worked. Maybe one day He'll pass me on, but until then, I am forever Zevi, I am His wolf.

Zevi. The ginger thing in the background is my sleeping cat. Kinda glad I've had him by my side lately if I'm honest
Also because it's V-Day, here, enjoy this Valentines related song. Super bonus points if you actually play it to your valentine.

I wish Ville Valo was my valentine. I'd break him though. Love really is the only war worth dying for.

  1. Happy Valentine's Day to you, Mark! :)

    Aww.. Zevi's story is just like big teddy's. He's a big stuffed teddybear I once had. My ex bought it for me, too.. But I gave it away when we broke up. :( I guess, i didn't wanna hold on to big teddy's memories. Ouch..

    But I gave big teddy to a little girl, who is obviously smitten by it/him. So I'm sure, Big teddy's okay.

    Oh, I have no Valentine. I spent the whole day with my dogs. I cleaned my room and after that, played some songs and danced, too. Hahaha! But I spent time sending messages to my family and friends, greeting them "HVD!". My Feb14's boring, as usual. A regular Tuesday.. harhar.. :p

    1. No one is getting my Zevi, no one. I still need him. Where he came from doesn't matter to me, where he is now is what matters. Though I think my niece would like him, she's not getting him.

      hmm...

  5. That was beautifully written! And Zevi is adorable. It's good that you held on to him. Even if things don't go great, little things, like Zevi, can act as a reminder for good times - they have happened and they will happen again.

    1. I don't have many good memories of that time really. The poor guy is sadly a reminder of bad times.

  6. This is the most saddest, funniest and most insanely sane piece of writing crafted by a teen that I've read in a while. I can't imagine what that pup went through, though, that divorce must have hurt him enough for him to never wag his tail again. . . dang, tough lose for a fake dog. . .O, my bad, Wolf, tough loss for a fake Wolf.

    Smooth post, bro.

    1. Happy Tuesday to you too ^^ I wanted to avoid utter depression. It's odd for me to write about those times with a sense of happiness and joking but then again, it was from his point of view not mine.

  12. I like the personification of Zevi. The wolf's thoughts had a smooth flow.

    I like the bit about naming stuff, especially. If you ever have characters you need names for, you can come to me and I will help you, free of charge.

    1. Haha well thank you. I am terrible with names I really am.

  13. i don't really care about valentines day because to me its just like every other day - IT IS EVERY OTHER DAY. But I don't mock those who do make something out of it either.

    And the wolfie looks so cute (:

    2. haha! I hope it didn't sound like I was saying you hate on people that celebrate ;P because I wasn't.

  14. That was a great story! You can't give Zevi away now. Ever. He's been immortalized for all time, and people who read your blog will grow attached to him and ask about him and send friend requests to him on Facebook. And there will be Zevi fan clubs and 'I'm with Zevi' t-shirts and people in Germany will name their kids Zevi.

    Lol...maybe not. But that might make a good sequel?

    BTW, I know a 16 year old girl that would probably be impressed if a boy played that HIM song for her. Mmm...maybe not. It might not be 'hardcore' enough. :;rolleyes::

    1. Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuudeeeeeee I should so make those T-shirts. I wonder if they'd ever sell. I highly doubt it. There are much darker HIM songs if she wants more hardcore.

  15. Happy totally normal Tuesday? :)

    I loved the story and can you please ask Zevi if he wants to be my Valentine? I'm almost kidding.

    I think most of us have a zevi in our lives. I threw mine out on a whim and I really wish I hadn't.

  19. So how does the Energy-saving mode actually save energy?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The theory is that your computer uses more energy displaying bright colours so by blacking everything out, you save some energy.

  28. That was a super cute Valentine's story. At first, I somehow missed that it was through the eyes of Zevi, and was a bit confused, hehe. I must read more carefully.
