I first met Cyrus about 3 years ago in SL, when he came to the club I owned and after some minor chit chat we instantly bonded, becoming good friends in a very short time; he had -and still does as a matter of fact- a big mouth and an aloof attitude towards life I simply found contagious, finding it very easy to be as much myself around him as I could possibly be, without finding any judgement or critique from his part.
Time went by and after dating a few guys around our common circle of friends, we drifted apart after an argument and my refusal of taking sides; once he cooled off and was ready to talk he approached me to try and patch things up, but I was not yet ready for that and despite a general belief that I am void of feelings, mine were pretty hurt and the whole issue which tore us apart was not something I was ready to get back into discussing.
But time heals all wounds and makes memories, -even the painful ones- just lessons learned, so it was my turn to approach him and see if we could pick these where we left off and just carry on from there; he is still a good friend I enjoy talking to and despite the fact we are just both busy with our own things -RL and SL- I do still enjoy the time we spend together, even through IMs and is comforting to know that even from a safe distance, I still have Cyrus watching my back.
As busy and far from the spotlight as I am now -Clubs and staff or even bloodlines drama is something I simply don’t have the energy to partake on anymore-, I still find myself in the unwanted vortex of drama, due to old acquaintances trying to fool an old dog, then stirring the pot when it cannot be achieved or people in general pretending to be your friends, but secretly wishing you were dead, simply because you have something good going or they plainly hate you for wanting to get some of what you have -if not all- and it was good to know that amidst all of this, I still had Cyrus looking after me with a small warning of what he knew was coming.
To those of you out there thinking it is even possible to try and come between what I have worked very hard to achieve -this either in my professional or personal life-, I would plainly advise you to even stop trying and use some of that energy to get your own things, I have amazing people in my life such as my good husband Hiro and my good friend Cyrus, the Devil that once came to me -I include a link of his amazing blog you should take some time to look at-
