hey mr. dj

August 2014
this is the first update / next update
Fisher Family Introduction

Charlie Fisher (26 years old), Lacey Fisher (7 years old)


Work has been pretty steady these days. We were finally able to move out of that crappy apartment building above the pharmacy. I really didn't like the idea of Lacey spending her entire childhood in that one square room. This house has two bedrooms. She's so excited to finally have her own room.

I stand with Lacey in the morning while she waits for the bus. The bus stop is right in front of the house but I still like to see her off in the morning. She tells me that she's a big girl now and doesn't need me to come with her but I just can't help it. I'm home for the majority of the day while she's at school and I go to work shortly before her bedtime so I like to spend as much time as possible with her.

Later that afternoon, I had my old friend Dale come over to discuss a gig. He brought his girlfriend Brittany with him. Dale and I graduated both from Ashland High School a few years back and we used to be tight. Our lives kind of just went their separate ways, with me having to take care of Lacey and all that. I was never really quite sure what happened to him - he kind of fell off the map for a minute.

As it turns out, Dale owns a club in Oakhurst Pointe and remembered that I DJ'ed back in the day. He offered me a gig at his club that night. I was completely stoked! This was a big opportunity for me. Lately, the only gigs I've been able to score were mediocre but this, this was a chance for something bigger. College kids, drunk college kids, love when I spin. Hopefully this gig will turn into something more permanent.

As soon as I got there, the bar was already packed. School isn't even in session right now but these kids are still partying it up. Sometimes I regret not going to university - not that I would have gotten in anyway. My life just went in a way that I could have never imagined. Don't get me wrong - I wouldn't trade Lacey for anything in the world, but sometimes I feel like I missed out on being a kid.

The set up Dale has here is sick. The DJ booth is up on the second floor in a glass cage. It was awesome. There were people rocking out on the dance floor all night.

I even had a few girls come up and try hanging out in the DJ booth with me, not that I minded. This one girl, I didn't even catch her name, was crushing me really hard. She seemed cool and all but I think she was a little too interested in me before we even talked. I guess she just liked what she saw? Don't get me wrong, she was pretty to look at but I'm not really in a place to get into anything with anyone. I have a seven year old at home. I got priorities. 

As the club's owner and manager, Dale gets hit on by a lot of chicks. Even when his girl is right there. From what I remember about him, he never had a girlfriend he didn't cheat on, even back in high school. I was impressed with his rejection to one of the girls at the club since I don't remember him ever turning down anything.


After a little while, I was the only one left in the DJ booth until Brittany came upstairs. She said she liked the view from up here. What I didn't realize, is that we had front row seats to Dale flirting and dancing with some of the girls on the dance floor.

After noticing me noticing Dale's behavior, Brittany looked ashamed. I tried to cheer her up. I told her that she doesn't deserve that. She admitted to me that he's cheated on her in the past but she just goes with it because she "loves him so much."

She's such a pretty girl. I can't believe he would even think about cheating on her. He's really all about himself and could care less about anyone else. That's a terrible way to be. As I tried to make Brittany feel better, I noticed how the light was hitting her beautiful eyes.

I don't really know how it happened - who kissed who first. All I know is that it was amazing. I don't know if she did it out of jealously or anger but at the time I didn't care. I loved the feeling I had as I held her in my arms. I didn't want to let go but I had to get back to the DJ booth.

Not 5 minutes after our kiss, Dale walked into the booth. We couldn't have stopped at a better time if we tried. Brittany seemed withdrawn and excused herself to the bathroom as soon as she saw Dale. He offered me another gig in about a week. He said by Friday most of the kids from University would be moved into their dorms and looking for a party. I couldn't believe what a success the night had been.

As I left the club that night, the only thing I could replay in my mind was the kiss with Brittany. We didn't get a chance to talk privately before I left which left a million thoughts in my head. Did she regret it already? Was it a mistake? Oh man, I had to know.

The next day, I scrambled around looking for the piece of paper where Dale wrote both of their numbers down, in case of emergency. I had to call her. I prayed he wouldn't be home when I did and lucky for me, he wasn't. We spoke on the phone quickly and she promised to stop by that afternoon when he went to check in on the club.

She got to my house a little after 1. I spent the whole day thinking about her and the kiss. I haven't felt this way about someone in a long time and I didn't hate it. I couldn't wait to see her and talk to her, alone.

After a few minutes of small talk about last night's gig, I flat out asked her about the kiss. She giggled when I asked her and then confessed she couldn't stop thinking about it the whole way home. I told her I felt the same way. She also said that she wasn't ready to tell Dale and that she didn't think she could leave him. Hearing that made my heart sink a little. That was not the answer I was looking for.

  1. Wow, that club is insanely cool...did you build it? Charlie seems like a great guy, I would stand out there with my child too if at all possible. I felt bad for him about Brittany, she seems like she might be trouble, or her boyfriend might, and with him doing favors having Charlie play at the club.... Anyway, it really made me laugh with the girls who didn't know Charlie flirting and hanging around.

    1. Thanks Shannon! Yes, I did make it. I love the grungy feel of it. I am working on a sign for the outside - I'm calling it "Grunge" lol. I think you are right - Brittany and Dale probably aren't the best people for him to be spending time with. I guess we will have to see what happens there! I'm glad you found it funny too. I glanced over at him and there were actually three ladies up there with him! Too funny!

  2. That club is SO COOL! Charlie is lucky to be able to work there - I hope it gives his career a boost. It could be a great way to provide for Lacey.

    But yeesh, this situation with Brittany is trouble, isn't it? There does seem like there might be something between them but while Dale is in the picture, maybe it's not the best idea. Even if he's doing much worse with other girls. :\ I'm hoping she ends the relationship - she doesn't deserve to be cheated on.

    1. Thank you Carla!

      The situation with Brittany could get very hairy for Charlie! I think he needs to stay away from her because I don't see anything positive happening there. Unfortunately, after that kiss he just keeps rolling wants for her! Lol

    1. You're right!! I hope Charlie can get over her before he puts his new job in jeopardy!

  4. Wow, that club looks awesome! That's quite a spot Charlie's got himself in, with Brittany and Dale. She needs to break up with Dale, but if Dale finds out how Charlie feels, he's probably going to blame him whether its his fault or not... and Charlie will be out of a really cool job, too. What a mess.

    1. Thank you! Ahh, I think it's only fair to say that only time will tell what's going to happen in this situation. Hopefully things will work out in Charlie's favor!

  5. That club is serious awesome, I could hardly concentrate on Charlie cause I was admiring the background so much. He is seriously adorable with Lacey, I really liked seeing them together in the beginning, and waiting for the bus to arrive. And yeah he might want to step back from Brittany and Dale, I don't think this will end well, and he'd do better to not be apart of it.

      Charlie is all Lacey has so he wants to be there for her as much as he can - it really is sweet!
