Emilyís Mom: EMILY!!! COME ON!! Itís time to show you the surprise!
Emily: Iím coming, Mom!
Surprises are always a good thing, whether itís ice cream or a birthday present. Thatís why Iíve always looked forward to them. And because Mom and Dad were taking me to my surprise by car, I was as excited as ever!
My name is Emily Hartman; Iím 19 years old and a freshman in college looking foreward to starting a new life of my own. I was very popular in high school and most of my teen years were spent getting piss drunk at parties and sleeping with the entire football team. Now that Iím out of high school, I really want to clean up my act and start a new life...find a husband...start a family..
Fifteen minutes later, I arrived at my destination.
Emilyís Dad: Well, here it is! How do you like it?
It was about a story high, 2 bedrooms 1 bathroom, and it had a backyard. My surprise was my very own HOME!!
I can see that my parents bought this house with me in mind, seeing that all the walls were periwinkle, my favorite color!
My back yard even had a Jacuzzi! I love Jacuzzis! Itís very peaceful in my backyard. 2 tall elm trees border the fence with benches, perfect for picnics with my future children, if I have any that is.....
Emily: I love it, Daddy! Thank you!
Emilyís Dad: Awwww Your welcome. Donít forget to thank your mother too! Sheís the one who put the deposit on the house!
Emily: I love it, Mommy!!
Emilyís Mom: I knew youíd love it!
After Mom and Dad were gone, I knew right away there was some serious decorating and remodeling that needed to be done!
The first room that got done was the kitchen, as much as I LOVE eating out all the time, it can be a bit fattening!
I decided to take the bedroom on the left, I had bought a queen sized bed, just in case Iím not sleeping in my lonesome anymore!
Pretty soon, the entire house was done; I was ready to face life for the first time!
Many of my friends still drop by. Take Tricia for Example! Sheís been a good friend of mine since high school!
Mom and Dad visit constantly. I guess they just want to know how Iíve settled in so far. No matter what, Mom and Dad will always view me as their little girl.
Bull sessions with my Dad are always in order.
I even still have Nightly pillow chats with Mother!
One good thing about Cardigan Springs is that I live right by their local Mall! Itís a good place for meeting friends and shopping!
I think Iím gonna like my new life!
5th Jun 2011, 12:28 PM
I was bored, very bored. Itís now the middle of the school year, the weather is getting colder and the sky is becoming greyer, It officially feels just like October. Friends still drop by but with less frequency because of the school year. I barely leave my house anymore because of my studies! I GOT to get out more!
Soon, my telephone rang, it was my best friend ever, Melissa.
Melissa: Hey girlfriend!! Howís my sister from another mister doiní?
Emily: Iím fine, what about you?
Melissa: Iím doing great! I have a surprise for you! Can I come over in say....a half an hour?
Emily: Sure! Why the hell not?!
Melissa: I got tickets for a concert at the Cardigan Civic Center!
Emily: Whoís playing?
Melissa: This band called RoughRider, I got their CD! Letís listen to it!
Their music was absolutely amazing! It really reminded me of all the rock bands in the 80s!,which is my favorite music! It had a hard rockiní edge but with a danceable beat. Itís kind of a mix between AC/DC, Bon Jovi, Whitesnake, and Van Halen.
Melissa: And guess what else? The concert is scheduled for TONIGHT!! And look here! We get FIRST ROW!!! SOUNDCHECK, CONCERT AND BACKSTAGE PASSES!!!!!
Emily: No way!! How much did it all cost?!
Melissa: About 300 Simoleans, but itís worth it!
Emily: So how do I look, Melissa?
Melissa: Oh, you lookiní FINE with a capital F! Come on! Weíre gonna be late for the concert!
The amphitheatre at the Civic Center wasnít really that big, only the size of a small stadium. It sat about 1000 people, not small but not like a six hundred thousand seat football stadium!
Leave it to my good friend Melissa Fancey to throw away $300 to get us amazing seats! We were able to witness the magic of a stage show coming together!
Emily: When does it begin?
Melissa: In a little while, the roadie still has to test the amps!
At around 7, the band hit the stage. The intro was this absolutely amazing drum solo! I have never seen someone drum roll for that long without losing energy! And he was using the timpani mallets to create a very loud bass effect on his drum kit!
Soon the entire band hit the stage! Fireworks and lasers shot off as they cranked out a hit single from their debut album! The crowd went INSANE! This is why I love rockers so much!
The guy playing the Les Paul, Vincent Tervato is also the lead singer. He has an amazing voice that really projects to the audience!
Even though Vincent is a good guitarist, most of their recognizable riffs, blazing guitar solos and power chords come from the lead guitarist, Joe Cavender. His guitar playing skills are akin to those of Randy Rhoads or Eddie Van Halen!
Even though I already mentioned him, The drummer, Mike Hemsberg is an extremely talented drummer and really reminds me of Neil Peart from Rush!
However, there was one member of the band that really stood out for me......
The guy playing the bass guitar is probably the most handsome man I have ever seen, Slicked black hair, beautiful green eyes, chiseled jaw line. I have never believed in love at first sight.....but this guy just made me believe!
Emily: Yo Melissa! Whoís the bassist?
Melissa: The bass player? His name is Ian, Ian Howlett! Heís good isnít he?
Soon, the band finished their final encore and the concert was over. Not for us, though! We still have our backstage passes and I can meet Ian! I just hope that his good looks match his personality!
Vincent: THANK YOU CARDIGAN SPRINGS!!! GOOD NIGHT, WE LOVE YOU ALL!!!!
After the concert, me and Melissa showed them our passes and we went backstage!
The first thing we noticed was the lead singer and rhythm guitarist , Vincent Tervato was absolutely surrounded by women! They seem to like him, A LOT.
Meanwhile, Melissa was busy getting an autograph from the Lead Guitarist, Joe Cavender! Thatís why you pay good money for backstage passes!
Then, Standing right before me, was the new man of my dreams, Ian. I had mustered enough courage to approach him delicately.
Then, he spoke to me, in a soft, sweet angelic voice, American accent, but with a mix of other nationalities.
Ian: Hey there, whatís your name?
Ian: Hey, I recognize you! Youíre that really pretty girl that was looking at me the entire concert!
Ian: Iím Ian, Ian Howlett.
Emily: Emily Hartman, and I really like the fact that you said I was pretty, because I believe I just met the most sexiest man in the world!
Ian: Awww...youíre just saying that!
Melissa: Oh my LORD!! Emily that is SOOO cute! I need to snap a Polaroid of you two!!
Best. Night. EVAH!! Thatís when I met my knight in shining armor for the first time!!!
(The Next Day)
Melissa: So how did you like the concert?
Emily: I loved it!
Melissa: You and Ian really seemed to hit it off yesterday!
Melissa: Handsome, muscular, you want to totally do him, donít you?
Melissa: Iím just teasing! And guess what? I gave him your number!!
Emily: You did not just say that...
Melissa: I DID! He told me he really would like to see you again! Iím sure a fine-ass fella like him gets all the girls, but this time he really seems to like you, you lucky biatch!
Pretty soon, he began to CALL ME! Me and Ian would engage in conversations and the sort, mabye Melissa was right...maybe he DOES like me! Pretty soon, I gathered enough courage to invite him over my house!
When I invited him over, It felt really weird, I was hanging out with a veritable celebrity! And best of all, it seemed like he viewed me as a legitimate friend and not just another fangirl. And also he really seemed to open up about the history of the band.
Ian: The band started when Vinny and Joe were in high school. They both took up the guitar and started a rock band. Because they were 2 guitarists, they needed a rhythm section. I was friends with Joe at the time and they needed a bassist. So they brought me into the studio, introduced me to Vin and I began to play a simple tune. Vin looked at me and told me ďyour hiredĒ We found Mike the drummer through a really bad cover band. The band sounded like shit, but Mike was a very talented drummer. We welcomed him onboard and thatís when RoughRider was born! We recorded 2 albums and this is our second U.S tour!

Hey guys....well I'm here to say that Emily's Story will continue on....but however probably not before the scheduled downtime on the 24th. Exams are killing me slowly right now. So I'm pretty preoccupied.

Here is a quick mini chapter for you!
It's now January! The weather is nice and snowy! Perfect for snowboarding, skiing and being around the fireplace with someone special! Unfortuanatly, I havent seen Ian since last November. He's been touring the United States with RoughRider, but we still talk on the phone! I'm proud to say that I'm not just another fangirl and that me an Ian are good friends!
By the time february rolled around, he returned back to Cardigan Springs, and we really got closer and closer!
Soon enough, he asked me the big question!
Ian: You know, Emily...we really got to know each other in the past few months....
Emily: I know we've gotten.......real close.....
Ian: No point in putting it off now. Emily, I love you. Would you like to be my girlfriend?
I accepted his offer by hugging him and he kissed me on the forehead! One of the most romantic moments of my life!!!

It's now May 27th! My 20th birthday! I was so shocked when I found out that IAN was going to come over with some friends of mine, including my best friend Melissa! If it wasnt for her, None of this could be possible!
It was especially awesome because Ian and I were totally dancing together! And we even did a slow dance to RoughRider's hit ballad, "Kelli".
It's always cool when you have friends to share you're life's experiance with you!
Then....right in the middle of the celebrations, Ian dropped on one knee. I knew where this was going....
Ian: Emily Hartman....will you...marry me?
I couldnt belive what I just witnessed!!! Just a few months ago I was fantasizing about him and now Ian Howlett, my crush, my best friend and the love of my life just PROPOSED to me!!
I accepted his offer not by saying yes, but by jumping on him and crashing my lips onto his...that kiss must have lasted for at least 30 seconds!
Emily: Hey Ian, It's cool that were gonna be together forever, but what about the band? what do they think of us being together?
Ian: I forgot to mention this to you...but after the tour was over I had told them that I was interesting in getting married to you, so I left the band on good terms and had even got them a replacement bassist. His name is Steve Sembello, great guy, very talented!
We spent the whole night kissing!
And needless to say, we did not get that much sleep that night.....
And let me tell you, It was better than any "boyfriend" I ever had in high school...

This is it! Today is the big day! July 9th 1991, the day that me and Ian got married! The Eastern Orthodox Chuch is one of the most beautiful churches you could ever see! Perfect for a wedding!
My parents, my best friends all showed up! And even Joe Cavender the lead guitarist for RoughRider came to the church!
The mass was absolutley beautiful, We exchanged our vows, we exchanged our rings and pretty soon the priest said "you may now kiss the bride" Our lips locked in a perfect make-out session as I officialy became Emily Howlett...I am prepared to spend the rest of eternity with the man that means the world to me, Ian.
Melissa: You go, girlfriend!!!
All my friends and family congradulated me on my new marriage.
Its always amazing when there are people there to share your best moments of your life with you!
The reception took place at my house later that night, everyone had a ton of fun, dancing, music, Me and Ian had a little bit too much Champagne (not to mention the wedding cake was already laced with booze) and we were later found spooning in the hallway, dead asleep. Good thing the marriage was already consummated.

Not a style that I usually read but something in this made me keep reading!
I have a feeling that things are going to turn sour for Emily though! Keep up the good work! I can't wait to see how she finds married life!
18th Aug 2011, 06:53 PM
love this story(: and its CRAZY ironic cause i'm also an emily h and my birthday is may 27th!!(:
19th Aug 2011, 12:15 AM
Thank you so much!!! More is coming!!
(Something to know about my story: Ian is based almost completley after my all-time favorite actor, Hugh Jackman. He's an amazing actor, handsome man, all around great guy. Just take Hugh, make him American instad of Australian, make him a bassist in an arena rock band instead of an A-List hollywood actor and BAMMO! You have Ian Howlett!!)

WARNING: This is a PG-13 rated chapter. Meaning if your UNDER 13, you might want to turn back.
Me and Ian spent our honeymoon at on Twikkii Island! An absolutley gorgeous beach paradise!
I feel like I'm living in my favorite romance novel....the best romance novel of them all......
Emily: So tell me handsome, any interesting rock star stories?
Ian: Well, I have one....you know this is my first time in a long time i've been in a hotel with another girl....
Emily: Why? What happened?!
Ian: A few weeks before the concert in Cardigan Springs...I had a fling with this girl in a Las Vegas hotel, that was BEFORE I realized she was a hooker, we were just talking about Vegas and the sort, and then she invited me to her hotel room and things went a little insane.....
Ian: So what happened was that me and Suzie were having drinks in her hotel room and she was really sweet to me and I was talking about how me and the band travel the U.S....
Ian: So then, we sat next to each other on the couch and she tells me she wants to paint my fingernails black, it felt really strange but at least she liked how it looked....she then excused herself into the bathroom. I knew she was doing the whole "slip into something more comfortable" routine.
Ian: As expected she walked back into the living room wearing nothing but stilletto heels a black leather bikini and for some reason she had a violin bow in her hand. I thought "hmmm this could be interesting"
Ian: She then began to parade herself around me and began to take my clothes off, Me and the guys were hanging out in a public pool earlier and I totally forgot I was wearing my speedo underneath. That got her totally excited!
Ian: But then she got on her knees and started to paint my toenails in a bright pink nail polish and put little daisies on my big toe. I had it with her nail painting crap so I jerked my foot away and she went absolutley mental on me.
Ian: She began whipping me with her violin bow and she was yelling at me for no reason!! so I got up and RAN. She was throwing everything she could at me, wine glasses, flower vases...
Ian: I then knelt down to find my clothes and there she was, right behind me with a violin. Before I realized what she was doing, (CRASH) she whacked down the violin on my butt and it must have broken in a million peices!
Ian: I found a pair of camo running shorts and just booked it out of the hotel!!!
Ian: I ran into Vincent in the street and he was all like "What the HELL happened? We lost you at the club and we were looking all over for you!!!" I told him "Its a long story" and ran to the hotel we were staying at.
Emily: Oh my God were you alright?!
Ian: Yeah, I was just embarrassed. But that was only one story.....
Ian: I remember this one time in New Orleans, we were going to do a gig in Baton Rouge soon and me and Mike decided to check out a nightclub called "Earth"
Ian: We grabbed a table in the corner and bought a massive bottle of Cajun Whisky. We downed shot after shot while admiring 3 beautiful women wearing bikinis. "Yo Ian their hot chicks, arent they?" Mike said.
Ian:"Yeah! We really lucked out!" I said as we toasted to our sucsessful U.S tour! Then, the music stopped and the three girls simultaniously removed their bikini bottoms and revealed something shocking. THEIR MALE GENITALIA!!
Ian: "OH MY GOD, ITS A GIRL WITH A DICK!!" Mike shouted, spilling his drink over. "Wait hold on a second....Its three TRANSVESTITES!!!" I shouted "It's three MEN!! Those are guys!! lets get the HELL out of here!!"
Ian: Me and Mike just ran out of that club and made a mad dash for our hotel. "Wow...that was both disturbing and confusing..." "Yeah for a second I thought girls could have.......penises....."
Ian: The whole experiance got worse and worse. We went to the hotel suite where we found Vincent and his girlfriend snuggling on the couch while watching the porno channel.
Ian: We sat down next to them on the couch, thats when I noticed that the coffee table was shaped like a massive penis. "Hey, great show, isnt it!" Vincent pointed at the TV where a svelte,scantily clad woman was caressing the pecs of a large, bearded shirtless muscular man.
Ian: "Vincent, I've GOT to get out of here." "Oh, don't be such a pussy, dude! Enjoy the show!" Vincent applauded the apathetic couple on the TV screen as they laid on the couch and began to have intercourse. "Look, Vin I'd rather be doing it than wacthing it." "Well MABYE if you would SHUT THE HELL UP, you might learn a little something about making love!!" Vincent's girlfriend yelled at me.
Ian: I glanced over to Mike, lighting up a cigarette and shaking his head in total disgust.
Twikkii Island is a magical place, full of mystery and wonder! The fire dancers were the BEST part of our vacation!
Ian even mastered it and showed me how to do it when we got home!
Even after the honeymoon....we spent our nights
loving....touching....and squeezing...... just like the Journey song....

Summer 1991 Part III
One day, I woke up with horrible stomach pains and pretty soon, I began to paint the entire toilet green with vomit. I had no idea what happened and I assumed it was some sort of stomach virus I got from Twikki Island or the dirty, overcrowded airports.
Throuought the day, I began to experience extreme cramps in my neck. It got so bad that I could barely move my head without experiencing pain.
The neck pains began to make me worry for my life because nausea and neck spasms are signs that I may have contracted Meningitis, a disease that can kill someone in less than a day. I knew right away that I had to go to a doctor immediatly.
Emily: Honey, can you please take me to the doctor? I don't feel good at all....
Ian: What's wrong?
Emily: I have these neck pains and I'm feeling nauseous, plus I'm tired all the time....Do you think It could be....
Ian: I'm pretty sure it ain't meningitis, but if it makes you feel better I'll take you.
Dr.Parr: Well, we did some tests and you do not have Meningitis. The pain in your neck is coming from discomfort. My reccomendation? Buy a better pillow for your bed, one that can support your neck better.
Emily: Thank GOD I don't have meningitis, but what about the barfing?
Dr.Parr: Once I heard that you were nauseous I wanted to do another type of test because I had some suspicions...I was right! it turns out that it could be the morning sickness you've been having! Emily, your gonna have a baby!!!
I was SO overjoyed that I leaped up and hugged Ian as tight as I could!!
Emily: OH MY GOD!! IAN!!! WERE GONNA BE PARENTS!!!!!
Ian: Hey! this is pretty good news!!
6th Sep 2011, 03:42 PM
that is sŚ sweet :lovestruc
23rd Sep 2011, 11:18 PM
Ian: Hey Emily....notice anything different?
Emily: You grew out your goatee!! I think it looks SO sexy!!
Ian: Thank you Emily, I grew it out with you in mind!
The remaining months of my first pregnancy were a busy few months, most of the time was spent shopping for new baby items. Pacifiers, onsies, baby toys.. you name it. Also we hired an interior decorator to do the spare room next to Me and Ian's bedroom. I can honestly say it looks perfect for a little bundle from heaven!
Ian, shockingly was looking so foreward to becoming a Dad! I was really surprised because back in the late 80s, early 90s it was considered very uncool for a rocker to settle down. In RoughRider's case, Ian was the first band member to get a real girlfriend, then he was the first to get married, and now he's going to be the first one to have a child.
Then, on November 20th, 1991. It happened. I remember sitting on the couch when I felt a sharp pain and water and blood trickled out of my vagina. I knew right away....the baby was coming!
Ian called an ambulance that took me to he hospital, where they found out that the baby's heart rate was faster than they wanted, they wanted to cut me open and do a C section, but I insisted on natural childbirth...
Doctor: PUSH!!! PUSH AS HARD AS YOU CAN!!!
Emily: ARRRRRGGGGGGHHHHH!!! I'M TRYING!!! UUUUUUURRRRGHHHH!!!
Doctor: You're doing good Mrs.Howlett! I can see the head!! There it is!!
After about Six long, dreadful hours of childbirth...a healthy 6lb baby boy, OUR baby boy was born...
Me and Ian already decided on a name if it was a boy. We named him James after Ian's middle name. Incidentally, if it were a girl we probably would have named her Esther after Ian's mother. We spent the rest of the day welcoming James Howlett (Yes, that is Wolverine's real name) into the world.
I can assure you, motherhood is not an easy task, Me and Ian work as a team to make sure our little wonder was well-nurtured!
However, no matter what I am ALWAYS on diaper duty. Ian won't even TOUCH a dirty diaper. In one respect, I don't blame him (the whole rockstar image, you know?) On the other hand, I can't wait until we do potty training, I'm totally gonna force him to take care of it! I know, I'm evil.
Nonetheless, Ian is very good with kids, no doubt about it. It turns out that he treated his sister's children very well and he was looking forward to raising kids of his own!
He is just so precious.
17th Oct 2011, 04:36 PM
The months went by in their quiet way and our tiny, precious little angel began to grow in size...Now it's November 20th! James is now a year old!
In terms of looks, our little bundle from heaven definetly has my eyes, nose and mouth. But has Ian's ears and jaw line!
Ian: You're gonna be one handsome guy when you grow up, little buddy....Just like your old man!
Me and Ian always tried to enjoy the challenge of raising a child, no matter how difficult or seemingly impossible it seems. Ian and I always tried to make the best of it, no matter what!
But however, we soon learned that nighttime routines with toddlers are NOT fun.
James:WWWWWWWWWAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!! MA-MA! MA-MA! MA-MA!
especially when you have to wake up in the middle of the night in your underwear to change a diaper...
Little James kept on growing and growing! Just a few weeks prior, he began standing up on his own! It won't be long before his first steps...
He tried to walk a few times, but no matter what he always ended up falling on his hiney.....But I'm confident he'll get the hang of it soon!!
But pretty soon, he rose two his two little feet and began to take his steps in front of me!
Emily: Oh my God....IAN!!! James is walking!
Ian: Good boy James........I'm very proud of you, son!
