Who hurt you?

Short Story #28
A Crazy Rich French Twins episode

Smirking, he pounded his right fist into his left palm, about to pummel his favorite victim when strong hands grab his 6’5’ frame and slam it against the lockers. He winced from the impact thinking that he was caught by a teacher or the principal, but when he opened and adjusted his eyes, a 5’11 sky blue-eyed boy was furiously looking at him. He had the punctilious look of a genius, but then, so did both of the da Díxon twins. He figured this one was Marcus for he had a reputation for standing up to bullies and defending the weak for whatever reason. Didn’t wealthy teens had other things to worry about? Like, deciding whether to take the helicopter or the yacht for a trip in the country? Or which Ferrari to drive to school the next day?

Jean-Pierre Papin smirks. “Do you think that I’m afraid of you, Marc? Why don’t you look the other way and mind your business? This does not concern you.”

“When you’re picking on innocent people, I make it my business.” The lines around the da Díxon boy’s mouth hardens.

Jean-Pierre makes a move to push the teen off him, but the teen was not letting that happen. “If you don’t get off me in cinq, I’m going to hurt you more than I was going to hurt Joe.”

“You don’t scare me.”

Cold steel gray eyes narrowed as Jean-Pierre snarls. “Oh yeah? Unhand me and I’ll make you scared of me.” he scoffs and tries changing tactics to taunt Marcus for him to land the first blow. “Shouldn’t you be at home planning some fancy party?”

“Maybe I’ll have it right on your face!”

“You’re not going to like your face after I rearrange it.”

“Alright, who hurt you?”

Jean-Pierre was taken aback by the question. He was expecting Marcus to throw the first punch to start the fight of the century at Paris High, but instead, he gets asked a stupid question. “Huh?”

“I don’t think that you’ve always bullied people because no one is born that way. Someone must have hurt you. You were bullied at some point in your life and sadly, instead of helping the defenseless, you became the abuser.”

The hands on his jacket were gone, but the twerp was still saying things making his mind wander back to that time.

“You can’t just go around prying on the weak. And you can’t just go looking for fights to boost your ego. Maybe you should try being nice for once.”

“Oh yeah?” Jean-Pierre uses his intimidating height to tower over the shorter boy. “And what if I don’t want to be nice?”

“I’m not giving you an option to be nice.”

Jean-Pierre knew this was one fight he was not going to win with his fists. No one had ever stood up to him before and it knocked the sails out of him.

“I know someone must have hurt you, but it’s never okay to pick on the defenseless just to make yourself feel good. You should be standing up for them for bullying is never the answer. Now, I want you to find Joe and apologize.”

Humbled in front of his peers who witnessed the entire exchange, Jean-Pierre sighs and without a word begins to walk away.

He watched as Jean-Pierre’s figure retreats down the hall and disappear around the corner just as his twin joins him.

“I turn my back for one minute and you’re getting into trouble with the charmant mauvais garçon.”

“He isn’t that charming.”

“I know, and I would’ve loved to see his face when you pinned him against the locker and threatened him.”

“I didn’t threaten him.”

“Oh yeah, that’s not what I heard, Ray.”

Ray shrugs. “He thought I was you anyway.”

Marcus laughs as he puts an arm around his identical half and escorts him down the now empty hall. “I guess my reputation precedes me then. That’s why I want to become a lawyer. I want to defend the helpless and what you did for Joe was pretty amazing.”

“Eh, c’est pas grave.”

“Um, Ray, what class do we have now?”

“You have like an eidetic memory and you can’t remember that we have Econ with monsieur Dupont? Ay! What do you use your brain for anyway?”

Well, this is what I might be working on if the time permits. If you like it, let me know; if you don’t, still let me know. And remember, bullying in any form is bad.

Sarai’s name is changed and she is blessed

Scripture in focus: Genesis 17

Abram is 99 years old when the Almighty appears to him and tells him what is expected of him (17:1). God also reminds Abram that He did not forget the covenant He made with him (17:2). Abram then falls on his face in reverence of His Majesty (17:3). Oh, to be in such glorious presence! Soon, my Lord! Soon, I shall be in such a glorious and majestic presence! 💙God reminds Abram that His covenant is with him and that he’ll be a father of many nations (17:4) so no longer was his name to be called Abram (father of many) for God changed it to Abraham (father of many nations) to reflect the meaning (17:5). God assures Abraham that he’ll have MANY descendants (17:6). God would establish an everlasting covenant with Abraham and it would extend to all of his ancestors (17:7-8). God commands Abraham to keep His covenant (17:9) and proceeds to gave Abraham something to do for the first time in regards to the covenant which is circumcision. He is also very specific about the details (17:10-14).

Image result for obey god and leave all the consequences to him

God also changes Sarai’s (“my” princess) name to Sarah (princess) for His promises would come through her (17:15-16). How did Abraham response? He laughs in doubt for he did not think that a man his age would be fathering a child with a wife past her childbearing age (17:17). Which is sort of funny, for his own father had him when he was 130 years old. Ishmael was now a teenager and Abraham wanted to adopt him as his heir (17:18). It shows that Abraham still wasn’t looking at the big picture. All he could see was his old age and Sarah’s barrenness before him so it was hard to grasp what he couldn’t conceive. 

Despite Abraham’s doubt, God tells him matter-of-factly that he was going to have a son and he was to name him Isaac (17:19). Ishmael shall also be blessed for God heard Abraham’s prayer (17:20). In 16:10, God had already promised Ishmael’s mother (Hagar) that He’ll multiply her descendants through her son. God repeats that the covenant is to be established with Isaac and not Ishmael (17:21) and then He ascended before Abraham’s eyes (17:22) just as Jesus did in the presence of His disciples (Luke 24:51). 

Without delay, after God left his presence, Abraham carries out God’s command of circumcision (17:23-27).

Image result for obey god and leave all the consequences to him

Sarah is reproved for laughing

Scripture in focus: Genesis 18

The Lord appears to Abraham once again in human form (18:1). Abraham holds up and sees three men (the pre-incarnate Christ & 2 angels) and he humbles himself before them (18:2). Abraham says to his Lord that if He judges him and finds him okay to not leave (18:3). Verses 4-5 is a picture of hospitality and shows Abraham’s willingness to serve. Sarah and Abraham prepare a meal for their visitors (18:6-8). After eating their meal, the men get down to business and enquires after Sarah (18:9). She was said to be in the tent, but she was within hearing of the conversation in which God reaffirms His promise of a son (18:10). 

Image result for God’s Word is an immovable anchor in times of storm

Sarah and her husband are old and “it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women” meaning that she had stopped menstruating (and had probably gone through menopause) so she couldn’t see herself carrying an unborn (18:11) so she did what her husband did earlier when the Lord paid him a visit: laughed (18:12). She was in doubt about conceiving a child the natural way, but nothing’s impossible for God. Even when we’re faithless, God remains faithful (2 Timothy 2:13).

The Lord hears Sarah’s laughter and asks Abraham why did his wife laugh although He already knew why (18:13). He then poses a rhetorical question “Is anything too hard for the Lord?” (18:14). Of course not!

NOTHING IS EVER TOO HARD FOR OUR WONDERFUL CREATOR! NOTHING! 

Image result for The awareness of God’s presence energizes us for our work.

When Sarah realizes that she was in the presence of God she denies laughing, but God insists that she did in fact laugh (18:15). The men then rose up and look toward Sodom (18:16). God decides to reveal to Abraham the fate of Sodom and Gomorrah (18:17-19). The cities had become polluted with sins so great that God was going to go down and judge them (18:20-21). The two angels went down to Sodom (these are actually the two men who visited Sodom in Genesis 19), but the Lord stayed with Abraham (18:22) who proceeds to intercede on behalf of the two wicked cities (18:23-26) and then bargains with God for the people (18:27-32).

Image result for God does not require us to understand His will, just obey it, even if it seems unreasonable.

During these verses, we see the character of a very prayerful and spiritual man. He prayed that Sodom might be spared if a few righteous people should be found in it. His nephew Lot was a resident of Sodom and he could’ve only asked God to save Lot, but he prayed for the righteous. His heart was full of compassion for the people of Sodom. This is the compassion that we should feel for sinners and how we should pray for them. All the while Abraham was conversing with the Lord, the Lord was ever so patient. 

The Lord then went His way and Abraham returned to his place (18:33). Unfortunately, not even 10 righteous people were found, just 4 and God had to destroy the cities as we’ll see in the next lesson.

Additional Notes/Recap

^ Relating to the appearances of the Lord to humans, it is believed that this Person was God, in the Person of Jesus Christ before His incarnation and birth at Bethlehem for NO ONE has seen God at any time but Jesus declared Him (John 1:18) and NO MAN has ever seen God in the Person of the Father (1 Timothy 6:16).

^ You may ask why God had to keep reminding Abraham of the promise He made to him. Simple. Faith comes by hearing (Romans 10:17) so we need to hear God’s promises over and over again. From Genesis to Revelation, God keeps reminding us of His beautiful promise of salvation if only we come to accept Him as Lord and Savior. 

^ Isaac means “he laughs” a reference to Abraham’s response in 17:17 and Sarah’s action in 18:12

Bonjour septembre!

Another month to grow closer to my Maker!

I thank God for giving me life and bringing me this far to see yet another month. It’s la rentrée (back to school season) so it’s going to be a little busy. 

August was a blessing and I got to reunite with the bestie for an outing which we’ll be talking about on our blogs sometime in the near future. I was not well for the past few days so I had to stay in bed and rest hence the reason why I didn’t have the chance to schedule posts or read blogs. I’m still not 75% but I’ll get there with God’s good grace.

Challenge for septembre

Last month, I completed some tags and I have one or two more that I’ll like to get to, so I think I’ll do those. I didn’t get a chance to update French Friday (I haven’t been learning French recently, but I got into another language by accident. Which one you ask? Stick around to find out!) and I didn’t even update the TC Movie Challenge although I do have the review for Legend written on paper. I still have the Tobago trip to talk about and a product review, so I’ll make an effort to get those done. I also hope to get some Bible studies done for I’ve been learning a lot and I can’t wait to share it with you.

Blessed septembre to all and keep walking with Jesus.

Book #138: When Dimple Met Rishi

People: This book sucks socks!
Also other people: This book was the best book of the year!
Also, also other people: I was torn between giving it a 5 or a 3.
Me: I’ll make my own decision.

I read this book two months or so ago and I have to say that I am pretty disappointed with one Dimple and the plot. I’ll never stop writing honest reviews for I don’t believe in changing my opinion for anyone. I have so much to say that this might get a little lengthy.

Oohkay, let me warm up first.

Flex my fingers, adjust my computer screen, grab my coffee… Ready!

Purple and Orange Flower Girl Wedding Card

I went into this book neutral because YA rarely lives up to the hype no matter how many Book-tubers swear by the book (I’ve unsubscribed to all of their channels for they almost always have the same boring and repetitive content). I came out hating this book. Dimple was just an awful character although I liked her for the first few pages. She was a nerd and she wanted to pursue her dreams, but then she met Rishi, and in the blink of an eye, her entire character changed quicker than a chameleon changes its skin. 

She was irritating and annoying that I wanted to reach into the book and slap her silly. 

Image result for me reality gif

As for Rishi, he comes from money, but he doesn’t act like it. He’s humble and obedient to his parents even when they set him up to attend Insomnia Con (kind of a party name for a tech convention don’t you think!) to court Dimple. As a matter of fact, Dimple and Rishi’s parents tricked their kids into attending the convention (although Dimple really wanted to go) so they can meet. 

Rishi draws comics and he’s great at it, but he’s keen on following his parents’s dream of him having a great future in business (I think). I love the fact that Rishi was so comfortable with his uncoolness, he was the coolest person in the room. 

Image result for gif so cool

Now, let’s rant in notes as I tear the book apart.

^ I did not get a sense of San Francisco besides the fog named Karl. Yes, the fog in San Fran is called Karl and the author did a great job of reminding us. However, I did not feel transported to San Fran as I did when I read James Patterson’s Women’s Murder Club series. 

Image result for karl the fog

^ I think the author should’ve translated Hindi phrases for non-Hindi readers. I understood some of it for I used to learn Hindi at one point. 

^ An obnoxious group of well-manicured people – a white girl and boy, and an Indian boy – were already trying to take pictures of one another. (Page 65) What? You mean to tell me that black people don’t live and study in San Fran?  I thought it was unnecessary to point out the color of people’s skin for it did nothing here. I would’ve gotten it had Rishi never seen white people in his life, but for some reason, it just doesn’t work here.

^ “This is how it works in the US: In the spring we’re constantly subjected to bunnies and eggs wherever we go, signifying Christ’s resurrection. Then right around October we begin to see pine trees and nativity scenes and laughing fat white men everywhere.” (Page 142). Now, this does not offend me in anyway for Easter is a pagan festival and Christmas does not signify Christ’s true birth. However, I think this paragraph was meant to be religiously controversial as Rishi said at the end that he gets to explain Hinduism. Author, stop being so foolish. If a Christian were to go to India now, they’ll be assaulted with Hinduism iconography. If the so-call Christian images are assaulting your senses, pack your bags and leave America for good.

^ So Dimple attends a party and drags Goody Two Shoes Rishi along with her. I can’t believe that the author wants me to believe that someone like Dimple who scorns people and social life like the plague attends parties. Just no! It doesn’t work. On the other hand, I can believe that Rishi has never been to a party before besides Diwali ones. 

^ Cue unnecessary dramatic exit: He turned and walked away, the fog swallowing him whole. (Page 353). 

Image result for gif fog covering someone

^ Where is the coding talk? The tech talk? The app talk? The whole point of Dimple attending Insomnia Con was to create a health app to help people and there was hardly any talk of it. This book was pure drivel. 

^ I am going to sound stereotypical, but this scene calls for it: Which respectful Indian boy or girl would be making out in a dark alley and when things get heated, the girl asks, “What? You mean here? We can’t do it here?” and “If you’re doing this because of some old-school concern for my ‘honor’, you don’t need to.” (Page 287). Nice going, Dimple. Really nice going. I can think of all the names in the book to call you, but then, that wouldn’t honor you, would it now?

Image result for gif indian

^ Insomnia Con is having a talent contest and Dimple wants to do a Bollywood dance. They started off with ‘Dil Na Diya’, but ended up dancing to ‘Dance Pe Chance’ from Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi

I was relieved when I came to the last page of this garbage. It would’ve been interesting to know more about the app and Dimple’s competitors’ apps as well. This story went from its focus on creating an app to a pointless talent show. With all of the ‘careful’ preparations leading up to the show, you’ll think the author would dedicate more than just a paragraph to it (Page 308). I wanted Dimple and Rishi to lose the talent show, but of course, they won for they danced to a SRK song after all. 

Image result for gif dance pe chance

This book was a total mess and you know what else is? Jab Harry Met Sejal and I am contemplating on doing a review soon. The author said that she was inspired by Bollywood movies and she passed for most Bollywood movies are a mess. This writing was cringe to the max.

The author forgot to thank Shah Rukh Khan in the acknowledgments and this book put me off so much that I don’t think From Twinkle, With Love would be redeeming… but I’mma read it anyway.

COVER

Probably one of the most natural covers I’ve ever seen! I love that the model isn’t airbrushed and you can see all the hairs on her face. 5/5.

VERDICT:

Posted in Tom Cruise Movie Challenge

Legend: long hair, a thieving princess, young love, and a great pair of legs!

Tom Cruise movie #7

Actual Story: Darkness seeks to create eternal night by destroying the last of the unicorns and marrying a fairy princess is opposed by the forest boy Jack and his elven allies. This story was actually taken from Celtic mythology.

Last month, my bestie reminded me that I was doing the 80s movie challenge which was far removed from my mind. It’s been a while since I’ve updated the TC Movie Challenge. Today, I’m about to attack a beloved classic. 

Many people would tell you that they grew up loving this film and it’s their favorite of TC even if they’re not fans of his. I did not grow up with this film so if you love this movie, I don’t care. And I was like TC, too, during this movie, for half the time he didn’t know why he was in a scene. Half the time I didn’t know why the scene was even a scene. 🤷‍♂️

Image result for LEGEND tom cruise GIF

“Am I lost? One thing’s for sure, I’m not in Kansas anymore, Toto!… and why is that girl running towards me?!”

I saw this movie for the first time two years ago and it was nothing special. I made notes so this is going to be a note-taking kind of review.  

^ A princess singing to animals and flowers? Is this the live version of Snow White? Or was it Cinderella? Everyone (I don’t know who EVERYONE is since we’ve never met the King & Queen) expects Princess Lili to marry a prince, but she doesn’t want to for she’s in love with the jungle boy.

^ This is TC’s first role as Jack. He’ll eventually go on to be Jack Reacher (LOVE!) and Jack Harper narrowly missing out on as Jack in Jack & the Beanstalk. So, Lili is in love with this Jack who’s actually the Prince of the Woods who’s actually the offspring of Tarzan and Peter Pan. Jack is friends with a crow and he is quite likable. His princess girlfriend? Eh, not so much. Lili steals from a nice poor old lady and then offers the food to Jack. Isn’t she a princess? Why can’t she take food from the palace to feed the forest vagrant? And of course, it’s a heart-shaped cookie. How much more subtle can one get in proclaiming their love without actually saying those 3 little words? Does it hurt to say them?

Behold, the forest dweller! 

Again, why is a so-call princess allowed to roam freely in the forest alone with no guards at her side?

^ Jack speaks every animal language known to… animal kind (Dr. Doolittle who?), even unicorn.

^ “Let me sing to you,” Lili wants to seduce Jack with her lovely voice after she kisses him and here is that delightful conversation:

Lily: Are you afraid to kiss me, Jack?
Jack: I’m afraid you’ll break my heart.
Lily: Then still your heart. You’re dear to me as life itself. (Proceeds to remove the ring from her finger) Don’t you wish this was our wedding ring?
Jack: If I say yes, would my wish come true?
Lily: I’m a princess. It’s my right to set a challenge for my suitors. 

That little trollop! Why play hard to get when you’re already in love with someone, huh? And that conversation was cringe to the max!

When Tom has better hair than the leading lady…

^ Moving on, the land is now turned to ice. I can’t remember why because I stopped paying attention, but I think it’s something to do with Lili ignoring Jack Doolittle and talking to the unicorns. How does she even know unicorn language? Oh, right, she’s young, pure and has an innocent heart. The goblin Blix succeeds in cutting the horn off the unicorn thus freezing the entire land (Frozen anyone?) except for Jack, Lili, and some fairy kinda looking folks. I think this is what happened, but if it didn’t happen, I don’t care.

Image result for LEGEND tom cruise GIF

^ Time skip.

^ Time skip.

^ More time skip.

^ There’s someone more powerful than Jack in the forest and he’s a childlike thing name… Gum. No, wait, it’s Gump. Honeythorn Gump. And he throws legendary tantrums! 

Image result for Gump legend gif

^ So, Darkness kidnaps Lili and Jack and his fairy looking friends must get her back and they must also try to get back the horn… to be honest, I stopped following the plot, but here enters Tinkerbell’s cousin, I mean, Oona. This fairy even tries to seduce Jack so she can get a kiss out of him telling him “I could be anything you want me to be, even your heart’s desire.” The Swamp Hag even tries to seduce Jack calling him a “Juicy boy” although to be fair, she was trying to have him for dinner, but the sexual reference was not to be missed. At one point, the old hag acknowledges his youth and tries to kiss him. WHAT? And children watched this? Unbelievable! WHY WAS EVERYONE SEDUCING JACK? HAVE THEY NEVER SEEN AN ATTRACTIVE MALE BEFORE?

Image result for legend oona and jack

Crazy eyes Oona is psycho for Jack, yo! I love when Jack called her desperation ‘fairy glamour’ and that’s about the only thing I love for it was so random!

And once again, Tom is so out of place that sometimes he looks… regretful for taking on the role of Jack. He’s like ‘Who drugged me and what even I am doing here?’

Related image

“Oh, dear! I think I might be lost again! What did they put in my water?” 

^ Darkness is hot for Lili. He wants to tempt her, tame her, make her his. Satan, is that you? Oh, well, I guess it is. Lili doesn’t look the type to be fascinated by material things given her love for Jack and animals, so tempting her with jewels and her stupidly falling for it all of a sudden was not believable.

^ Table dancing! Cue the part where Jack is fighting the bad guys on top of a table and the camera just loves him! It keeps the focus on his thighs, those amazing legs, and his backside. And WHY DOES JACK KEEP FALLING WITH HIS LEGS UP IN THE AIR? Did the creepy director had other motives? I bet he did! It’s Hollywood after all and they’re not always subtle with the sexual messages they’re trying to convey.

^ Finally, Jack takes on Lord Darkness. Light defeats darkness and the light in this one is Jack. Of course. Of course. TC has a megawatt smile that can light up a thousand dark cities after all. Darkness teases him about being a boy, but when he thought he had victory in his red claws, he taunts, “It’s always a pleasure to take a brave man’s life.” But Jack eventually defeats him so take my life too, Jack, for I wouldn’t get the time back I spent watching this rubbish. Please, I beg of you, take it!

Image result for LEGEND tom cruise GIF

^ Tom Cruise screams. He screams just like in The Mummy… I guess Nick Morton is actually Jack all grown up. He escaped the forest and Lili is the mummy who returns to haunt him. I recall saying that prior to The Mummy, I’ve never heard him scream before. It figures that I haven’t seen this rubbish film as yet so I didn’t know what his screams sounded like then.

^ Jack gracefully falls into the water. I think that was TC’s body double.

^ Jack kisses a sleeping cursed Lili Sleeping Beauty style. She wakes up in the forest happy to be with her one true love. And scene.

FINAL THOUGHTS

I still have no idea why this movie was so popular or why it’s even someone’s favorite film or why it’s referred to as a genius. The movie was dark (actually a dark fairy tale), they were constantly objectifying certain parts of Tom’s body and he wore a tunic without pants. WHY? We get that his legs are killer for he never missed leg day, but would it have killed for wardrobe to get him some pants? Tom was what, 20, 21 or something like that in this film? Mia Sara was only 16. And Tim Curry… ew! *shudders*

I’ve read that they wanted this movie to be even DARKER in which the Darkness lord torments Lili until she loves him and they would’ve had violent relations after. Ewww!

This film was nothing but a sex metaphor pot which over-sexualized Tom’s body… which is creepy in its own way. The horn on the unicorn is a phallic symbol and in medieval mythology, it was said that only a virgin could attract a unicorn and lull it to sleep so hunters could kill it. Lili attracts the male unicorn and Jack scolds her reminding her that it’s forbidden to touch a unicorn. She doesn’t listen and the forest is plunged into winter. 

Lili becomes the bride of Darkness after dancing with a shadow and dancing is a ceremonial symbol of sex hence why Bollywood likes sexy dance numbers in their movies. 😉

And how does Tom’s hair remained glorious throughout? 

DISCLAIMER: Tom Cruise’s killer legs, good looks, talent, and great looking hair have since disavowed any and all associations with this film. They’ve since gone on to star in decent better films and making their owner look good while performing those roles.

Tom does not mention this film on his resume and it’s the film he never talks about whenever his career comes up. 

TRIVIA

^ At the time prior to filming, Tom Cruise had a disliking for cutting his hair. When he was cast for the part, his long locks were the perfect look for the forest-dwelling Jack. It is the longest length of Tom’s natural hair captured in a film. Word? I thought his hair was longest in The Last Samurai? I guess it’s safe to say that TC doesn’t like long hair anymore for he got the memo that he looked like a free-spirited LA hippie.

So much hair! Dude looks like a hippie!

Mia Sara was only sixteen during the filming of Legend. Sara was born in 1967, so she was sixteen in 1984 when production for the film began. But it took a further three years before Legend was finally completed by Ridley Scott, because of the film’s immensely troubled production history.

^ The sound of the unicorns at play is actually a recording of humpback whales. I figured those were whale sounds!

^ Jack’s armor is made from flattened bottle caps.

Would I watch it again?: I rather soak my eyes with bleach.
