It had been no small task for Alexis Love to leave her hometown of Avalon for the peaceful Monte Vista. She was the youngest daughter of five, always the baby, but the first to leave home. There was no future for her as a witch, but in the mortal world... well, her options were limitless!
Sure, she didn’t have much money on hand, and the only place she could afford to rent was not at all her taste, but who cares?
Its new, and it has a pool. Thats all she really needs.
She also needs a job, but that was handled on her first day in town. As soon as she opened the newspaper, the opening at the local police department popped out at her. It must’ve been a sign so she did as it said and went to apply in person.
Alexis can tell the human isn’t too impressed, but upon finding out Alexis is a witch she decides to give her a chance. “Your shift as a snitch starts tomorrow morning at 9. Don’t be late, and we’ll see if a more permanent place for you becomes available.”
Back home, Alexis was the only child in her family to ever make use of the TV. She was certainly no couch potato, but all that television had left a lasting impression on her. She’d already decided that she had to become a super special Secret Agent now. A Super Spy, if you will. Her magic skills were nothing to brag about, but she’d need every advantage she could get.
Her mother had very specifically told her not to bother returning home if she was set on turning her back to her heritage. So really, becoming a super spy was her only option right now.
“How’d you do it? I mean, you’re making the normal life stuff look so easy!”
Amaya attributed all her success to the support of her loving husband, and good friends. And, of course, luck.
Life is lonely, she muses once she’s home alone. But one day she’ll have a life like Amaya’s, but without the magically contracted husband. Her husband will be a true hero, her children will be perfect in every way, and she’ll be filthy friggin rich. One day.
Work is dull and ends early, leaving Alexis with plenty of time to explore the town and the local bars.
Alright, Lex. You can do this. Sweep him off his feet. You can do it! You’re gorgeous!
Alexis barely has to open her mouth before Vaughan starts showing off his best moves, obviously trying to impress her.
The drinks themselves weren’t too shabby either. She might end up liking this guy.
Unfortunately when she tries to hint at them spending some more time together, he smiles and leads her upstairs to the domino table. It wouldn’t be so bad if she could at least flirt freely with him, but the police chief notices her from across the room and decides to join into the game. What a woo-hoo block.
The next bar Alexis tries has far more promising results. This time the bartender is attractive in a different way, and her fairy wings put Alex in a trance.
“What’ll you have, darling?” The girl asks, looking Alexis up and down with a smile.
Alexis spills the results of her last bar crawl, and how she wished it would’ve ended. How she left her home too young, and how she’s worried about bills and how she’ll never find a good husband, and how work sucks, and how she really wishes she could just relax and have some adult fun without having to worry about emotions.
“I can’t really help with your bills or finding a husband, but if you’re looking for some no-strings-attached fun... I’m leaving town in the morning.”
The photo booth was the closest secluded place they could find. Alexis hasn’t realized the booth was turned on when they entered.
Alexis doesn’t need to be a genius to know that if these photos got out, her career would be ruined. Even cops have a code of ethics they need to stick to, and public woo-hoo is probably against that code.
The hangover is less easy to get rid of.
At least, she hopes the nausea is from a hangover. The other option she can think of isn’t one she wants to consider.
Okay. SO. This is Alexis Love. My new founder. She's a witch, from Avalon (just like Markus!), and woo-hooer totally ate my plot line and popped out a new one.
This chapter was supposed to go on past Alex's leisure day party (pushed to the next chapter). Vaughan was supposed to show up and he was supposed to ask her out, only to be shot down. Alexis was supposed to be at level five of her career before getting pregnant.
Instead risky hit me on her first time.
Yeah, I'm not turning it off. This should be good.
