2.21: Whatever

Note: For the foreseeable future, most Mari chapters will contain strong/adult language and sexual references. I will not be putting a disclaimer on every one of these chapters, so please just proceed with caution from this point forward. Thanks!


It feels like forever since the last time I wrote in here. You know what they always say about time flying when you’re having fun? Well, let’s just say I’ve been having plenty of it lately…

Unfortunately, it hasn’t all been fun though. If only.

Things at home are still boring as shit, so I try not to spend too much time there, if I can avoid it. My sisters are driving me CRAZY, and my dad’s a fucking moron… But more on that later.

And as for work, well… I’ve kinda-sorta been slacking in that department lately. Whoops. My boss keeps getting pissed at me for showing up late, but Hell, for what he pays me, he should be thankful I’m still showing up at all! Ungrateful dick…

I’m pretty sure I would have lost my friggin’ mind by now if it weren’t for Miguel and Natalia.


They’re pretty cool, I guess.

And yes, in case you’re wondering, it’s THAT Natalia… I ran into her at a club a couple of weeks ago. It was the first time I’d seen her since graduation, and I’ve gotta say, she hasn’t changed much. She’s still a total bitch, of course… But a useful one. She knows which bars have the best drinks, which DJs put on the best show, and, most importantly, where all the desperate, drunken losers like to hang out looking for a good time… I think I’ll keep her around.

As for Miguel, I don’t really know him that well, to be honest. He just started chatting me and Natalia up one night. She was the lucky one who got to go home with him, and I figured that’d be the end of it… But we ran into him again a few nights later, and he started tagging along with us. Guess they’re sort of a ‘thing’ now… But that doesn’t stop them from fucking their way through half of Windenburg with me.

Almost reminds me of mãe and her friends… Except we aren’t fuckbuddies, no matter how good Natalia says Miguel is. No strings attached – that’s my rule. And banging your friends counts as a pretty big string in my book.

Anyway, the point is, the three of us have fun together. And tonight was definitely no exception.


But there was one tiny detail that made tonight a little different…

My dad showed up.


Yup, I’m actually serious.

Can you BELIEVE it? It’s bad enough having him interrogate me every friggin’ day about where I’m going and what I’m doing… But following me? Thinking I couldn’t see him standing there watching? Like I told you, he’s a fucking moron. I think I finally understand where Carolina gets it from.

Anyway, I think I freaked for maybe five seconds before I decided “Scheiß drauf”. If he’s so goddamn eager to see what I’m up to, I may as well give him what he wants.


I could feel dad’s eyes on me the whole time… Every drink, every dance with that drunken loser I’d picked out from the crowd… The only time I felt nervous was when I heard his footsteps following us on the stairs.


I mean, he is still my dad after all. Did I really want him to see me like that? I’ll be honest — I panicked a bit. What would he think of me? What would he say?

Then I realized he can’t say shit.

I mean, come on! Mãe used to be the biggest Schlampe in all of Windenburg, and that certainly didn’t faze him. He’s the biggest fucking hypocrite in the world if he says anything to me about this.


I dunno. Maybe I’ll feel differently when the alcohol’s worn off… But right now, I couldn’t care less.

I’m not sure how long he stayed around. By the time we finished, he was gone.

  1. Mari kind of has a teeny tiny point, it’s kind of one of those ‘Like mother, like daughter.’
    Poor Alex though, I don’t think he ever got to see his now wife doing any of that stuff, did he?

    1. Very true!!! The biggest difference is their motivation. Mari is doing it for the wrong reasons, Jade was genuinely just having fun. But the behavior is definitely the same XD

        1. Yeah, it was painful to write that. She is very very very ANGRY at the world in general haha and unfortunately Alex bears the brunt of a lot of it 😦

  2. For reasons I can’t properly comprehend (as in, I don’t know the right words), I’m just shaking my head at Mari’s actions.

    I can’t help but wonder how long it would take before this bites her in the end.

  3. I was frieking out when I saw Alex looking over the banister! I would die if my folks caught me even holding hands with anyone back in the day this is sooo yellow plumbobs!!! LOL – Mari also reminds me of a co-worker I used to have a few years ago..she would say the very same stuff “My boss can’t get mad at my tardiness, she doesn’t pay me enough!!” – I digress…How will Alex react now that his worst fears are confirmed??!!!

      1. Hmmm….will he be like “whatever Mari it’s your life” ?? or will he be like “your choice your life, move out!” ?? – or will he just chose to not talk about it??? Ugh the anticipation will kill me I promise.

  4. Wonder if there’s anything left in the world that Mari does care about. I’m really interested to see how Alex will take this (and also if Mari gets to keep her job for much longer)

    1. Mari cares much more than she lets on… Trust me. Haha you will see! (And both of your other questions will be answered soon too!). She is in a very dark place right now… It’s very sad to write! Thank you for reading 🙂


  5. “I’m pretty sure I would have lost my friggin’ mind by now if it weren’t for Miguel and Natalia”
    Well that was unexpected!
    And okay, Alex, I get it, you’re concerned for your daughter, but that’s creepy on so many levels!!! I would have done something bad just to defy him as well (although probably not sleep around.)
    This isn’t going to end well 😦

  6. Alright Mari, I was all down for your one night stand, and even your hair cut. I was even cheering you on when you slept with like 3 different guys last chapter. I was like planet fitness over here, its a judgement free zone, but now you lost your mind talking about your mom like that. If your going to emulate your mother, do it for a better reason.

    And Alex, you are not off the hook! You followed her, don’t be mad if you got answers you didn’t like. And I hope you already told Jade about this too.

    Okay, vent’s over. Great chapter!

    1. Hahaha thank you! Yeah, Mari is heading down a dangerous path right now. It started out as fun and games, but is definitely turning into something darker/deeper… Stay tuned! Lots to come for my poor Mari haha
