Life is Delicious 9New Authors Note:
Okay I've known for a while how ridiculous this chapter sounds, but I have a good explanation!
So you guys know that Reneta (which I know should actually be RenAta with an A) is 15 and is homeschooled.
While she does have tutors, a lot of them are friends of the family who happen possibly to have degrees In teaching, or just have time to teach her materials from out of the books. Her parents are obviously very busy.
Onto the explanation!
I figured that since she was only 15, she's never had a proper "heath" class or any tutors who have given her information beyond the birds and the bees.
So really any info about the subject of pregnancy comes almost purely from speculation in addition to crappy day time television shows not unlike 16 and pregnant.
So THAT is why she thinks it is appearing so soon, cause she really doesn't know better.
Thank you guys so much for reading! I greatly appreciate it!

Anton stared at me with confusion written
Life is Delicious 8I open my eyes to the morning sunlight. I shivered and pulled the blankets closer to my body. I still didn't have any clothes on, and it was indeed still winter. I looked over to my left, no Anton. I furrowed my eyebrows and sat up. That was when I noticed a small piece of paper folded and laying gently on the pillow next to mine. It had my name written on it so I picked it up and read it out loud.
"My dear, sweet Reneta, I'm sorry that I could not be by your side when you woke, but I remembered that I had to meet with a client at a near-by bistro. Please help yourself to any of the amenities of my home. For, as far as I'm concerned, it is your home now too."
I smiled and set the not back on the pillow I found it on. Have you ever had that heavy-heart feeling when you know that you're in love? Yeah, that's how I was feeling right about now.
I crawled out of the bed and slipped back on the black silk robe. I stepped out into the hallway and turned right. I stepped into the bathroom, win
Life is Delicious 7When I walked back in his room I shut the blinds to make it pitch black. Thank you, Anton for having a depressing disposition. I looked at the alarm clock that was the only source of light now in the room. 12:30 AM, American time. Why is it in American time? I shook my head and fell back on the large bed. Wow, it was 12:30 am that was so late. I didn't realize that I was gone from my parents for such a long time, longer then acceptable no doubt. They've never given me a curfew, but I think 12:30 is just a tad bit late. But I bet Anton thought of some genius excuse for me. He was a genius after all, at least in my book.
As much as I hated him right now, deep inside of myself I still loved him. I loved him so much. I sunk deep in his bed and put my head on one of his pillows, using the other one as a comfort pillow. They both smelled of a floral scent with a soft hint of cologne, as if he had a long day one night and didn't bother to wash it off. It made me sad but also gave me a co
Life is Delicious 6"Anton!" I sat up quickly and saw that I was in a large bed with black and maroon sheets. I think it was Anton's bed. I blushed furiously then clutched by head tightly in my hands, God, did it hurt! I felt the back of my head and felt cloth bandages in place of the sticky mass of blood and hair. He must have bandaged them when I was still asleep. I was about to step out of the bed to go find him but noticed that all of my clothes were still missing. Gahhh! He must have seen me naked! Over on an ebony vanity I saw that there was a black silk robe. I walked over and picked it up; it had the initials AE on it. I hugged it close before slipping it on and tying it tight.
I descended the stairs and walked to the tea room, the last place I was in his house before everything went to shit. I peeked around the corner and to my small surprise, Anton was sitting at the same small table that we were at a few hours before. The memories of what had happened flooded back to me and I covered my mouth w
Life is Delicious 5Once again I was on the snowy streets of Paris. I held my crossed arms close to my body and shivered underneath my coat. Actually, I was lost. I've been walking for a while and I wandered into unknown territory where it was dark with only an occasional car driving past me. There were lamps on each corner of each street that silhouetted the snowflakes that fell to the ground. I was so tired and I just wanted to go home and bundle up in my flannel sheets. I've been through so much in the past few hours.
As I walked down a lonely ally way, I felt an arm slid e around my waist. I quickly turned around and saw a man with greasy hair in a trench coat. My mind was yelling at me to run away, but my legs wouldn't listen.
"Hey cuties, what's a girl like you walking around all alone?" he pulled me against his body and grabbed my chin to make me look at him. He was a gross, greasy man in his thirties. His unshaven face was curled into a menacing smile.
"Ohhh, what a pretty one I have here." My hea
Life is Delicious 4As I walked home from Anton's, it started to snow. There was already almost a foot of the white stuff on the ground. I was so cold! I only had on a thin fall pea coat, a blouse, and a skirt with tights. Brrr!
The tears on my face almost froze from the cold gusts of wind. But they just kept flowing. I couldn't make the tears stop even if I tried, not that I was. A mixture of sadness, embarrassment, and anger swirled in my stomach. It made me feel sick.
I checked my pocket for change for a cab to drive me home.
"Shit! I'm 50 short!" This made me cry even harder. My house was at least 10 miles away from the city! I turned the corner and saw a small café that was warmly lit up, a perfect place to stop and warm up. When I walked in I was greeted by a man in his twenties in a formal looking suit. Overdressed much?
"Bonjour mademoiselle! You look cold, please come in." I nodded as my teeth chattered and walked into the small café. It was warm with a fireplace on the right wall
Life is Delicious 3Chapter 3! Wow! I didn't think that I would make it this far!
The characters besides Reneta all belong to disney pixar.
I squirmed in my seat, awaiting Anton's return from making the tea. How would I tell him?
'Hey Anton, I'm 42 years younger than you but I love you!' Ha! I had to be crazy.
He walked back into the room carrying two clear cups of tea. The cups had silver and gold decorations around them, they were really beautiful.
"Thank you Anton." He smiled and nodded.
"Reneta, I've noticed that you've been acting a bit uneasy. Do I make you uncomfortable?" I shook my head quickly.
"No way, you're really cool and smart and charming-" I slammed my hand over my mouth.
"I'm sorry! That didn't mean to come out " I looked down at my hands that were now in my lap.
"It's quite alright, but why did you say that?" This was it, I was going to tell him straight out. I swallowed hard and my face burnt. I was go
Life is Delicious 2Chapter 2 of Life is Delicious! If you haven't noticed already, all of the chapters are named after delicious French cuisine! I thought it would be a cute little touch to go with the story.
So here's chapter 2, bon appetit!
The next day I took a cab from my home to Anton's apartment. It was a large apartment, way larger then the one I used to live in. I rang the doorbell and the door was answered by a small, stout man in a butler suit.
"Can I help you, miss?" I smiled and made a small bow.
"Uh, yes, I have an interview with Mr. Ego." He nodded.
"Alright, if you may take a seat in the tea room, he shall be down in a moment." He gave me a small bow and I did too before walking into a small, dimly lit room. The room was decorated in all dark décor, ebony woods, and a hint of maroon here and there. I took a seat on a black leather chair.
"Ah, Reneta, How are you?" I looked up from my lap and saw Anton sta
Life is Delicious 1"Reneta, could you get more bread on table seven?" I nodded and took the wicker basket and hurried out to the dining room. It was getting to the end of the dinner rush, close to closing, and there were still a few people here and there. I set the bread down and said "Have a nice dinner.", then walked back to the kitchen, my favorite place in the whole restaurant. Axel and Ron, Remy's boys were helping with the dishes and I smiled at how the sponge they were using was bigger then they were. I petted Axel on the head then decided to go check on the diners that I was waiting on.
After a while all of the diners were gone and I helped tidy up the tables and clean up in the kitchen. It wasn't closing just yet, about an hour yet. You know, I've never actually been here this late. It's only my first couple weeks being a waitress at my parent's restaurant and I usually only stay till dinner rush.
I had nothing else to do so I just sat in the dining area and snacked on a few of the dinner rolls.
SolaceShe never slept well in the dark,
not without the children of the sun and moon
to guide her weary lids home.
Guided by the aftermath, she was always two steps behind.
What did the world look like to the girl who had been through it all?
Braved the heaviest of storms,
yet skipping over cracks in the pavement.
They said her eyes were the wisps of clouds before the storm.
To him they were reflections of pages overlooked.
She said it was like she lived the life of someone she had never met.
Laid out to dry, yesterdays news.
He knew her as the girl who was built to never collapse.
He wished he was too.
He loved her more than words could say, and yet her pain was such,
that at times, he feared she wouldn’t make it.
But on nights like these, even when it threatened to consume her,
he became convinced that somehow she would.
Keep in Touch!
