While writing chapter 5 for this story I realized that 6 years is a long time and while the story is fresh in my mind, it might not be the case for you, my readers!
So a recap was born!
If you are new reading the story, start with the first chapter!!!
JENSEN – an almost 18 year old boy who is close to graduating high school; lives with his adoptive mother’s sister (he doesnt like to call her aunt because she technically isn’t, but he has other reasons…) Patricia, and her son Tommy.
While Jensen and Patricia don’t get along, he is very protective of Tommy and is only hanging in the house because of him.
He is smitten with a girl named Maria from his class. Later he goes on a first date with Maria kind of initiated by Maria herself. The date doesn’t go as planned.
Jensen is constantly philosophizing about life. Although he has been through some trauma in his life, and doesn’t really seem to hope for much, he is strong for those he loves, and has a huge sense of responsibility.
So when Patricia asked him to stay away from the house for a month so that her gigolo boyfriend could stay there, Jensen was torn about leaving Tommy.
It is important to note, his best friend Maxwell is one of the few people in his life that he trusts.
JOURDAN – a strange woman that appears in Jensen’s room and claims to have come from the future to help Jensen from himself. Although not said, it is implied that Jourdan is much older than Jensen (maybe in her late 20s or early 30). Jourdan is asking Jensen to leave his aunt’s place, but he is not listening to her. The only reason he sorta leaves the house is because his aunt throws him out temporarily.
We learn from very early that Jourdan is working in cahoots with Jensen’s sexy teacher that goes by the name of Ji-Sang but who’s real name is Joon Ji-Woo to have Jensen leave his aunt’s place and potentially learn of his past – who his real parents were/are, and why he should leave at the very least his aunt’s place.
There is a weird chemistry between Jourdan and the teacher; they don’t always get along so well. However, because of their sense of responsibility toward Jensen we learn that Jourdan is in fact (apparently so) from the future and is potentially dying. We also learn Jourdan can go through walls, and appear in places at will… so yeah, she is not from this world.
The most crucial bit of information is that she is Jensen’s wife in the future she comes from… that is, if you believe her.
Ji-Sang – or Joon Ji-Woo has some crazy past related to Jensen’s past.
There is a strange blonde lady always popping up in his memory and he seems to be in shreds over losing her. This lady might be Jensen’s mother. It has not been clearly stated, but we can assume based on his last conversation with Jourdan which did not end well.. I mean, Jourdan kicked his ass. Just saying.
Ji-Sang is too sexy for his shirt…. no really, he is. But he is on a mission to take care of something that he promised this mysterious lady he constantly remembers.
He helped Jensen’s
not friend Elias when he was wounded by allowing him to use his couch while he recovers.
He also went to meet with a lady friend, and realized he was kind of taking advantage of a situation that was to easy for him. He is not a bad guy you know? Just because he is sexy doesn’t mean he is full of it.
Oh! One more thing, he loves his liquor. I don’t know, I though it might be important to bring that up.
The Rest of the Gang – Well there is Maria, she does have feelings for Jensen but is a bit pushy… and weird too, in her own way; Clauida, she is at the moment very extra, and so is Erika Lee (Maxwell’s girlfriend);
Elias sells drugs (why? we have no idea yet). Got in trouble, was saved by Jourdan who witnessed him getting wounded. Jourdan advised Jensen to ask Ji-Sang for help.
Maxwell is Jensen’s best friend and shows he cares for Jensen like a brother, but there was something else on Maxwell’s mind that last time Jensen spoke to him on the phone… what was it? hmmm.
Bad guy Julian – who has been influencing Patricia to kick Jensen out of the house so he can live with her and not have to see Jensen’s face every day. Why does he hate him so much? Another mystery. But Patricia might be catching up to something…
There are lots of more details that are lost here… if you have read the story they will come back shortly… no worries there.
