The Story

Upon Victor Drayton's departure from the human mortal world, he was permitted to create an intelligence framework called Intellect into which his mind was implanted with this superior technology, he rapidly becomes a father and Guardian to humanity from beyond the grave.  This special framework is successfully utilized to provide a service to human beings in the form of Monitoring Programs which are then tasked with being invisible caretakers to the human life forms assigned to Intellect and for many years, Victor Drayton provides this service silently and invisibly to millions of human lives without even their knowledge.

One day however, when a lonely and very special Monitoring Program called Resolve is assigned to a female life form that he has to monitor as he starts to resolve the issues in her life, Leona's existence suddenly challenges everything about the world that Resolve currently exists in as he actually begins to form a very human desire to walk the earth alongside her.  Unfortunately, due to the very strict rules and protocols inside Intellect, Leona can never actually know about Resolve in his current form which creates a mountain of frustration for Resolve that he must find a way to climb over, tunnel through, or actually move aside and he finally decides that his only real choice is to find a way to humanize his existence and then actually leave Intellect forever to be by her side.

Due to Resolve's romantic interest in Leona and his desire to become human which would be a perilous journey that Resolve can never return from, Victor Drayton is then presented with a pending dilemma as the very life form that he has created and given birth, intellect and substance to seeks to actually leave his side forever.  The gift of companionship and the deeper connection that Victor Drayton provided to himself when he created Resolve specifically to fill the emotional void of his own personal loneliness, suddenly then becomes a pending heartbreak as he faces losing the surrogate son that he created to serve humanity alongside him, to the same human world that he created Resolve and Intellect to actually serve and assist.  Written by Jill Thrussell

Quotes:

"We don't have a future together, just an ugly past, an even uglier present and our future's crashed into a brick wall of heartbreak."  Leona admitted to herself decisively as she finished off her third slice of pizza.   ~ Jill Thrussell

"I can't fix Darin and neither can you Leona."  Resolve whispered to himself as he smiled.  "But what I can give you is far more superior to an inferior lover that doesn't even value your heart.  I can give you, your freedom and a joyful life that you can actually live in."  ~ Jill Thrussell

Unfortunately in life, there aren't any nurses for heartbreak or doctors that can fix broken cheating lovers."  She acknowledged.  ~ Jill Thrussell

A prickly sea of discomfort now seemed to surround Samson's body that he could not swim out of and the short dip of lust that he'd intended to take had now it seemed, turned into a very long swim in the murky depths of a huge vast sea of financial expenditure and he could see no actual shore of escape to swim towards or lifeboat to rescue him.  ~ Jill Thrussell

“Everything you do in life is a gamble.  Resolve.”  Leona read each of the words out loud to herself as she began to internally question what the sentence might actually mean and who could have possibly written it.  ~ Jill Thrussell

A relationship of any kind with a friend or lover, Leona considered, was in fact an emotional gamble as when you opened up the gates of trust that guarded your heart and emotions to someone else, you took a chance and that another human being could then potentially betray, hurt or disappoint you and the outcomes of such relationships were totally unforeseeable and absolutely unpredictable.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"I definitely lost that gamble of love because I gave my heart to a total deadbeat."  Leona suddenly reminded herself as her mind reverted back to the issue of the unreliable man that she'd mistakingly given her heart too.  ~ Jill Thrussell  

"It's so very strange to be so very close, yet so very far apart from everything that you want."  Resolve whispered to himself.  "It's so strange to be able to have achieved so much, yet to be so unable to achieve the one thing you want more than anything else."  ~ Jill Thrussell

"One day Leona, there won't be a distance between us anymore as my heart is a bridge that we can meet upon and my love for you will be a land that we can happily live in every single day."  Resolve vowed as he glanced at Leona's face and smiled.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Just as Rochelle had expected, Samson had asked her to sign the documents and take ownership of the property for the year and that suited her perfectly and so she'd participated enthusiastically as once again, his actions had silently confirmed to her that he was indeed a married man looking for a love nest in which to stoke his rod of adulterous lust.   ~ Jill Thrussell

In totality, Resolve realized, his life was pretty much a bland, plain canvas much like one of Leona's blank canvases that waited to be filled with a drawing that had been untouched by the pencil of human experiences, or by any human hand as his existence lacked the creation of an elaborate portrait of emotional, intimate, personal bonds.   ~ Jill Thrussell

Inside Resolve's form, a deep wave of hatred towards Darin had now begun to dam up behind the barrier that stood between them both as the undercurrent of Resolve's absolute annoyance waited for an opportunity to smash the dam wall down, so that a tidal wave of destruction could be unleashed upon Darin's life.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Several obstacles littered and obstructed the path that would lead to Leona's happiness and Samson was definitely a huge obstacle and a large piece of litter that Resolve fully appreciated had to be completely eradicated and rapidly discarded from her life.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Much like a pest control expert, Resolve knew exactly how to deal with Samson, the vermin of misery that plagued Leona's life and how to absolutely exterminate him and the additional temporary allocation of Rochelle had therefore been deemed totally necessary as it would definitely assist him in the fulfilment of his main objectives.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Each one of the four hours would be consumed and become deceased as Leona lived out each hour and if she did nothing meaningful with those hours, no jewels of joy would stored inside her treasure chest of memories to remember each one by and that would be an absolutely undesirable outcome to a deliciously vacant Friday evening.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Most weekends the heart of the city and its main shopping areas would be even more congested with human traffic as the streets would be filled to the brim with not only hungry shoppers on the hunt for bargains but also packed with tourists and their presence normally wreaked even more havoc upon the human chaos that littered each street.  ~ Jill Thrussell

The deep physical attraction that Samson felt towards Rochelle appeared to be mutual and for that, Samson was truly grateful as it wasn't often that a very attractive female landed so easily upon his runway of life and especially not one that was so sexually inviting, stunningly attractive and seemingly cooperative.  ~ Jill Thrussell

A huge distance however, currently existed between Leona and Resolve and no matter how many times he watched her sleep, or resolved her problems, the two still existed in two very different worlds and although Resolve's world was a window into Leona's world, it was a window that he could not actually open, or begin to climb through.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Some human males it appeared to Resolve, could be extremely helpful, kind and respectful at times but rather unfortunately, Leona had not entered into in an engagement with a man like that as she had fished in the sea of love and caught a nightmare in the form of a shark.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Quite sadly for Leona, everything about her current relationship was totally inferior in every single way it possibly could be and there was absolutely no denying it as every day that romantic reality slapped Leona in the face due to Darin's heartbreaking drama, unexplained absences and annoying antics.  ~ Jill Thrussell

The whole issue of a career, or the assumption of financial responsibility, it seemed to Leona, was like a remote dirty, old sock that had been stuffed down the back of a sofa that Darin had absolutely no desire to pluck out, launder, or even discard.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Regardless of the time of day it was or wasn't however, Leona's relationship with Darin always remained the same, a substandard mess that lacked any kind of romantic nutrients and that unromantic reality really bugged Leona as she glanced enviously at a couple on the street as they walked past her car hand in hand.  ~ Jill Thrussell

The relationship between the couple was like a deeply troubled grey cloud that hung over Leona's head that gave her very few glimpses of sunshine and joy and Darin seemed to squeeze that ugly, grey cloud as often as he could as he frequently drenched every part of her life with his downpour of misery and stress.   ~ Jill Thrussell

Rather strangely as Leona stepped through her front door and then began to make her way towards the lounge, the issue of a future with Darin continued to weigh heavily down upon her heart and her shoulders and it almost felt as if a heavy sack had been placed on her actual body that she could not now remove.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"At least the pizza tastes great."  Leona reassured herself as she polished of the first slice and then eagerly plucked a second slice from the box and raised it to her lips.  "And I've got some buffalo wings but I didn't really need those because I already have some chicken as I have Darin and he's definitely a chicken.  He's too scared to grow up and he's even begun to lose his hot spicy flavour and now, he's marinated in nothing but my total disgust."  ~ Jill Thrussell

Quite strangely, it suddenly struck Leona that the couple never even mentioned the topics of marriage and children anymore and it was almost as if those serious conversations had jumped of their flight of unromantic love with a parachute and found somewhere better to live as those discussions had never ever returned.  ~ Jill Thrussell

At the beginning of the couple's relationship marriage and children had been something that they'd discussed quite frequently and very enthusiastically, Leona considered as she reflected upon their slightly more romantic start but somewhere along the way, silences, disappointment, stress, heartbreak, misery and arguments had replaced their future.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Due to the fact that Leona was a woman, she faced significant pressure from her biological clock and so the issues of marriage and children did really matter to her but somehow, those two topics now lived upon a dusty shelf inside her mind of unlikely realizations in a very rotten state as her opinions on such issues, crouched silently together in a corner and no longer so much as even dared to run through her thoughts.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Later that Saturday night however, Leona had absolutely no doubts at all inside her mind that the peacefulness of the mews would definitely be disrupted and the quiet close littered with drug infested bodies and human forms saturated in alcohol.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Suddenly some very loud music and noises began to erupt and emanate from the house next door and Resolve rapidly observed that the three brothers were just about to rev up their party engines and zoom into fully party mode as he watched them make some last minute preparations for their night ahead.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Human compassion as far as Resolve was concerned could be a very noble principle at times but where that compassion caused the compassionate party duress and distress, it was deemed by him as no longer valuable as it actually became a weakness not a strength.   ~ Jill Thrussell

In the areas of life however where Leona was tolerant, Resolve was not, where Leona provided generous helpings of patience, Resolve would not and where Leona gave those around her extra portions of compassion, Resolve most certainly wouldn't.   ~ Jill Thrussell

"Sleep won't be coming to visit my house tonight."  Leona groaned to herself as she began to accept the implications of the very noisy gathering that was due to occur next door.   ~ Jill Thrussell

The late night hours quickly dwindled away into the remnants of a lived out history as the early morning hours began to approach as the neighbours' party continued at full throttle with absolutely no restrictions or interference.  ~ Jill Thrussell

A weary, tired sigh escaped from Leona's lips as she began to make her way towards her bedroom and as she prepared to sleep, she tried to push any negative thoughts about the brothers towards the back of her mind but her efforts were frustrated by incessant doubts and troublesome worries that now seemed to needle away at her thoughts.  ~ Jill Thrussell

“I promise I'll change.  I really can’t live without you Leona.  You're my heart."  Darin would usually say.   ~ Jill Thrussell

Rather convincingly, tears would often rapidly well up inside Darin's eyes as the emotional pleas that he offered to Leona, would infiltrate her heart and silently melt away the iceberg of dismissal which then usually rendered her, absolutely powerless.  ~ Jill Thrussell

The remnants of Leona's love, emotions and feelings towards Darin on the wonderful day that she dumped him would then smash onto the cold, dark, jagged rocks below the cliff of rejection and fall onto the ground of misery that he'd created and shatter into so many pieces, it would be virtually impossible to ever repair them and that day, Leona would finally be, totally free.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"Your life will start again tomorrow Leona."  Resolve promised himself decisively.  "Because soon the thief that stole your heart and then squandered your love will be completely gone.  I'm dropping your deadbeat, so you don't have to and so now, you will truly be absolutely and totally free."  ~ Jill Thrussell

A portion of devastation would definitely have to hit Leona's life like a whirlwind before a three course meal of happiness could follow but for Resolve, the end result of that liberation would definitely be worth a few months of heartache. ~ Jill Thrussell

In a very indirect way, Resolve had intervened and he would now have the chance to liberate and empower Leona with the ugly factual package of truth that waited just at her fingertips to be unwrapped which would allow her to escape the bondage of falsehood that she was currently ensnared by and that beautiful reality, satisfied him immensely.  ~ Jill Thrussell

In some ways, the many gifts that Samson had purchased for Rochelle in preparation for their date the next evening provided him with an ounce of comfort but as Samson knew, when the truth came and knocked upon his door, expensive gifts would not be able to save him and salvage his marriage if his affair was ever discovered and exposed.  ~ Jill Thrussell

For Resolve, his weekend and the impact of Samson's affair had predominantly been truly delightful as Resolve had watched Samson squirm around in a pool of discomfort, simply due to the lie of omission that he'd told Rochelle as she'd played around with his deception regarding his single status and then begun to fully exploit it.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Once or twice, since Resolve had been allocated to Leona, he'd questioned the possibility that perhaps his love for Leona would not be reciprocated but those meandering doubts that lurked in the shadows of his existence which threatened to haunt his potential happiness, Resolve had in the end, vehemently rejected and shunned as human weaknesses.   ~ Jill Thrussell

"It can't be that hard, if human males can do this, surely a highly logical, meticulously programmed, very well equipped Monitoring Program like myself should find it a total breeze."  Resolve immediately reassured himself.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"Don't worry Leona that's what I'm here for."  Nicky gently reassured her with a smile as she pulled open the glass door that led towards the front entrance of the building.  "To take the stress out of a cheating mess."  ~ Jill Thrussell

Between the two lovers an affair had been embarked upon that was rapidly becoming more and more intense, addictive and exhilarating for Samson and now, it almost felt like a roller coaster of enjoyment that he couldn’t even begin to attempt to step off as deep down inside he had no actual desire to do so.  ~ Jill Thrussell

All that Samson really had to offer Rochelle was a seedy love affair that sat upon a stream of lies and the riverbed of desire was nothing in the end but a riverbed of deceit and that really annoyed her.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Just underneath the surface of Rochelle's skin and her pretentious smile there was now a deep whirlpool of anger, contempt and disgust that seemed to spiral and swirl around inside her mind as it was ignited, prodded and stoked by a rod of discontent but that negativity was also fueled with a flame of excitement as revenge at times as Rochelle already knew, could be just as sweet as love.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Once Resolve had managed to set the wheels in motion with regards to Samson's downfall, he definitely had something up his sleeve for Darin but as Resolve already knew, Darin didn't need much help to self destruct which meant, he was the easiest target between the two predatory men and so Resolve had initially decided to focus his destructive efforts upon Samson.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Inside Resolve's form, it was almost as if an opera had begun to play a joyful song and the prelude for an invitation to romance as each word of appreciation uttered by Leona echoed around his inner core and he basked in the waves of sheer delight that washed over him which soothed him like a heavenly melody sung by the songbirds of happiness.   ~ Jill Thrussell

On several occasions, Resolve had heard Leona say that each precious memory was a jewel of joy and he definitely felt that his night had not only been a jewel of joy but also that it had been lit up by the stars of delight that seemed to sparkle and shine, purely due to Leona's presence, albeit in an artificial, simulated capacity.   ~ Jill Thrussell

For Resolve, it really frustrated him sometimes that Darin was such an incompetent cheat as if he'd been slightly more competent and had been sexually unfaithful successfully, Resolve might have been able to find a way by now to somehow expose his indiscretions by now to Leona.   ~ Jill Thrussell

Regardless of the disappointments that Darin had delivered to Leona's heart that weekend and the fact that Darin had let her down twice, Resolve could clearly see from the very smug smile on Darin's face, his attitude was really quite flippant and that he didn't seem bothered about his betrayals of Leona's heart in any way.   ~ Jill Thrussell

Another useful invention, Leona began to consider as she waited for Darin to respond, would perhaps be a bug repellant powder that could be placed around your home that cheating partners would be allergic to which would drive them away from your door.   ~ Jill Thrussell

Love and undeserved loyalty had somehow tied Leona's heart to Darin's side and so now, she really needed to break that emotional bond that had chained her to the ground in a way that could not possibly be forgiven as it had allowed Darin to trample all over her head, heart and life.    ~ Jill Thrussell

Deadlines and Samson were a match made in suffering and Leona already appreciated that grim reality and if suffering was a corporate entity on Earth, Samson had definitely incorporated that company and Leona was definitely currently employed by it.   ~ Jill Thrussell

Despite the relentless nature of three men's rudeness, the harm that they inflicted upon Leona's life and their very inconsiderate behaviour, Resolve was more than ready to dethrone them, add fuel to the fire of their lives and curb the impact that their lifestyle had upon Leona's peaceful existence and pleasant demeanour but there was one slight complexity and that hampered Resolve's actions.   ~ Jill Thrussell

Rather interestingly for Resolve, he noticed that Samson's marriage had been rapidly cast aside and very conveniently ignored that night as the two lover's date flowed smoothly along the river of romance and as drops of seduction trickled across the riverbed of desire, the two sauntered silently towards their final destination, the deep sea of sensual passion.    ~ Jill Thrussell

Mercy would not be Samson's friend, Rochelle vowed as she suddenly began to strip off seductively as she would strip away his financial assets and leave him stranded high and dry on the river banks of economic destitution without a lover and relieved of as much of his wealth as she could possibly grab.   ~ Jill Thrussell

On the other side of Rochelle's pretentious smile there was a whirlpool of anger, contempt and disgust that spiralled and swirled around inside her mind as it was ignited, prodded and stoked by a rod of discontent but that negativity was also laced with excitement as revenge at times as Rochelle already knew, could be just as sweet as love.    ~ Jill Thrussell

Every one of the six dresses had characteristics that really appealed to Leona but the most attractive incentive of all was that the dresses didn't sit at the very top of a rather high, extremely steep expensive mountain of expenditure that she had absolutely no desire to actually climb.   ~ Jill Thrussell

"Perhaps we can find a compromise, perhaps we can agree that love is a product of human emotional functions to fulfill the overall objective of the continuation and survival of their species as if they think that the human race might become extinct, this notion makes human beings miserable."  Analyzer suggested.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"Friendships are form of human entertainment that can also provide a safety net of support as such relationships engage their mental faculties and provide them with any necessary support required for survival.  Each relationship that is embarked upon provides every human being involved with emotional stimulation which internally motivates, entertains, challenges and drives them."  Analyzer explained with a smile.  "Most human friendships are utility based and based upon symmetrical alignments due to character, interests, personality or values which means, most friendships are either in a human beings' economic or emotional interests."  ~ Jill Thrussell

This affair would provide Resolve with an avenue of opportunity that he could utilize to force Samson to live upon a street of aggravation and torment every day as Rochelle would demolish his building blocks of wealth brick by brick with the hammer of persistence, the tools of manipulation and with the mallet of devious calculation.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"Well, at least I enjoyed my shopping trip yesterday, it was like a breath of fresh air and free from the vandals of distress that usually deface my life with their graffiti of misery everyday."  Leona mentioned thoughtfully.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Some emotional costs however had definitely been incurred by Leona to establish and maintain that feminine validation and those costs were the vile intricacies that she had, had to endure just to sustain a relationship with Darin in the long term which were increasingly painful and offered diminishing returns with regards to the enjoyment derived from his presence in her life.  ~ Jill Thrussell

A rough justice with very sharp claws would be delivered directly to Samson's door and because Resolve harboured absolutely no human inclinations inside of him that pleaded with him to show Samson even an ounce of mercy, it would be the most horrific experience of Samson's entire life and of that Resolve was absolutely certain.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Underneath Samson's image of corporate political correctness, it appeared to Resolve, there was a definite air of chauvinism which could not be denied, disputed or justified as the two main female pillars of support in Samson's life really did so much for him.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Just one task remained for Resolve to complete that night in relation to Samson and Resolve waited and watched quietly as he attempted to find the key of weakness that would unlock the stranglehold of disrespect that Samson currently held over the two women's lives.  ~ Jill Thrussell

The rush to prepare for Darin's arrival had now been made totally redundant by his lateness and that irritated Leona profusely as she knew deep down inside, every word that his phone call had contained had been a total pack of lies. ~ Jill Thrussell

The house of reality that Leona lived in every day certainly wasn't something that she'd taken any action to actually change and so it had remained that way for the past four years, stagnant and stagnantly awful although the entrance of the noisy neighbours three years ago had made it slightly more awful.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Much like someone that attempted to breathe life into a unconscious body in order to revive another, Leona had tried and tried to give their romance that life saving touch with her patience and efforts but it had been to absolutely no avail and their limp, lifeless relationship still seemed headed for a romantic tomb with little hope of an actual recovery.  ~ Jill Thrussell

For the past three decades Resolve had seen Intellect successfully bridge the chasm of human misery that human beings so often found themselves trapped inside as technology and science had been utilized to rescue them, eliminate human despair and then reinstall a bridge of hope within their hearts but the gap between the two worlds had not changed.  ~ Jill Thrussell

No restrictions or rules had ever been directly expressed to Resolve by The Guardian to prohibit such emotional sentiments but as Resolve already knew, other Monitoring Programs did not have the capacity to form any kind of emotional connection with anyone else, human or otherwise.  ~ Jill Thrussell

“Your job Resolve is to restore Leona's life back to the joyful place that it once was.”  The Guardian explained.  “You have to bring back the peace that once filled her existence, reinstate her smile and give her an upgrade in happiness.   ~ Jill Thrussell

A flurry of internal deliberations began to zoom silently through Resolve's logical processes as he made his way back towards the entrance of The Guardian's chambers as he accepted the very serious nature of his latest monitoring assignment as he walked.   ~ Jill Thrussell

"Greetings Resolve."  Analyzer immediately said.  "I've come to see you as I need an Emotional Response and a Code of Comfort to assist one of the human beings that I've been assigned to."   ~ Jill Thrussell

Unfortunately for the time being, when the two men served up their usual dollops of disrespect and disregard, Leona had no choice but to consume their indigestable, unpalatable offerings as she hoped and waited for life to provide her with an opportunity to escape from their very cruel clutches but as yet that opportunity had not presented itself or appeared.   ~ Jill Thrussell

An emotional urge and connection had definitely developed inside Resolve that he now felt would be quite difficult to control or dismiss and at some point he knew, it would definitely have to be satisfied as life in his present state as far as Resolve was concerned, was really no life at all.  ~ Jill Thrussell

The unique tapestry of involvement in human lives and the human Earth now at times, almost seemed to be an absolute contradiction to Resolve as the Intellect framework remained totally separate and very remote from those whom it actually served and interacted with every single day.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Inside Resolve it now seemed that each desire to become human and spend time with Leona had silently grown much like a plant that had taken root inside him and as he'd refused to suppress or reject those urges and allowed each one to flourish, those very human like desires had even started to conquer and rule him.  ~ Jill Thrussell

All the tender kisses that Gregory had planted that night had now abandoned his sinking vessel of seduction like disgruntled rats and were a sunk cost of attentiveness that had been invested into nothing but frustration as he would not reap the rewards of sexual pleasure that he'd hoped to enjoy.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Rather arrogantly, Gregory had taken a gamble that night as he'd taken Marina out on vessel that he knew very little about and rather unfortunately now, disaster had suddenly struck and shattered his romantic seduction into a million tiny pieces of absolute embarrassment.  ~ Jill Thrussell

The life that Leona should have enjoyed was very sadly riddled with the diseased malice of others, others that took Leona for granted, others that failed to appreciate and respect her and others that seemed to revel in degrading her at every possible opportunity and so Resolve had to give Leona's life a spring clean.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Cobwebs of misery clung to the shelves of Leona's mind each and every day that had been spun by the spiders of distress and those spiders had to be eradicated as they were not useful to her general well being and they had become parasitical predators that now sucked every ounce of joy from every part of her life.  ~ Jill Thrussell

In fact it seemed to Resolve, the orchestra of people that accompanied Leona on her walk through life, who played the song of her existence alongside her, predominantly seemed to play a very stressful tune most of the time and there were very few joyful, upbeat moments in that song, so it was easy for Resolve to understand why Leona had become buried in a stressful pit of total misery.  ~ Jill Thrussell

A ribbon of fearful uncertainty seemed to wind itself very tightly around Leona's neck and she began to struggle to breathe as she walked across the room towards her desk and then sat down as she prepared to face Samson and attempt to hold an actual discussion with him.   ~ Jill Thrussell

Directly above Leona's head, it felt as if there was now a very angry, dark grey cloud that silently waited to burst which intended to drench her with droplets of distress when the rainstorm of Samson's thunderous words and venomous tones were released and as his eyes burnt into her flesh, she began to squirm in total discomfort.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Silent arrows laced with venom and sparks of hatred seemed to fly out of Samson's eyes and pierce Leona's skin as even his silence inflicted wounds of discomfort upon her.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Every angry word that Samson scornfully snapped shot rapidly through the air and as his question cut through the silence, each word demanded an immediate answer from Leona but despite his obvious anger, she completely froze and even actually hesitated as her tongue became totally tied up in nervous knots of fear.  ~ Jill Thrussell

A soft, gentle, feminine nature coupled with a dictatorial male on a power trip was definitely a recipe for potential abuse and Leona and Samson respectively, certainly met both those criteria as far as Resolve was concerned.  ~ Jill Thrussell

 

Just as Rochelle had expected, Samson had asked her to sign the documents and take ownership of the property for the year and that suited her perfectly and she'd participated wholeheartedly and enthusiastically as his actions had silently confirmed that he was indeed a married man looking for a love nest in which to stoke his rod of adulterous lust.  ~ Jill Thrussell

A blanket of silence seemed to suddenly fall across the room as Samson glanced at Rochelle's face with a nervous expression and then looked up at the ceiling and he hesitated for a moment as he rapidly began to search his mind and the ceiling for an appropriate response, or a possible escape.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Guilt as Rochelle already knew, could be a very useful bargaining tool and it would now be one that Rochelle would utilize to extract exactly what she wanted from Samson as a runway of guilt had been meticulously engineered for her plane of desires to take off from and land upon.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Everything about Rochelle's suggestion had absolutely horrified Samson and as he'd reluctantly processed her request inside his mind, his thoughts had grown heavier and heavier as they'd soaked up every word she'd said and his mind had become like a saturated sponge that now sat at the bottom of a murky, stagnant, pond filled with filthy water.  ~ Jill Thrussell

The sweet smell of success rapidly began to fill Rochelle's nostrils and as the bells of victory rang inside her ears, she paused for a moment as she prepared to savour the victory which she could now almost taste that was well and truly on its way to her bank account.   ~ Jill Thrussell

Just a couple more days would be given to Nicky and her team and Resolve had even found a way to place Darin in the ideal scenario and one that would allow Nicky to hammer the final nail into Darin's coffin of fake love and if she didn't bang it in hard enough, Resolve most certainly would.  ~ Jill Thrussell

A relationship of any kind with a friend or lover, Leona considered, was in fact an emotional gamble as when you opened up the gates of trust that guarded your heart and emotions to someone else, you took a chance and that another human being could then potentially betray, hurt or disappoint you and usually the outcomes of such relationships were unforeseeable and unpredictable.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"One day Leona, there won't be a distance between us anymore as my heart is a bridge that we can meet upon and my love for you will be a land that we can live in every single day."  Resolve vowed as he glanced at Leona's face and smiled.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"Sleep won't be coming to visit my house tonight."  Leona groaned to herself as she began to accept the implications of the very noisy gathering next door.  ~ Jill Thrussell

The late night hours dwindled rapidly away into the remnants of a lived out history as the early morning hours began to approach as the neighbours' party continued at full throttle.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Due to the fact that Leona was a woman, she faced significant pressure from her biological clock and so the issues of marriage and children did really matter to her but somehow those two topics now lay upon a shelf of unlikely realizations in a very rotten state as they crouched together in a dusty corner and barely even dared to run through her thoughts.   ~ Jill Thrussell

Rather strangely as Leona stepped through her front door and then made her way towards the lounge, the issue of a future with Darin continued to weigh heavily down upon her heart and her shoulders and it almost felt as if a heavy sack had been placed on her actual body that she could not now remove.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"Your life will start again tomorrow Leona."  Resolve promised himself decisively.  "Because soon that cheating thief that stole your heart and then squandered your love will be gone.  I'm dropping your deadbeat, so you don't have to and so now, you will truly be absolutely and totally free."  ~ Jill Thrussell

A portion of devastation would definitely have to hit Leona's life like a whirlwind before happiness could follow but for Resolve, the resulting liberation would definitely be worth a few months of heartache.  ~ Jill Thrussell

In an indirect way, Resolve had intervened and he would now have the chance to liberate and empower Leona with the ugly factual package of truth that waited just at her fingertips to be unwrapped which would then allow her to escape the bondage of falsehood that she was currently ensnared by and that beautiful reality pleased him immensely.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Once or twice, since Resolve had been allocated to Leona, he'd been challenged and questioned the possibility that perhaps his love for Leona would not be reciprocated but those meandering doubts that lurked in the shadows of his existence which threatened to haunt his potential happiness, Resolve had in the end, vehemently rejected and shunned.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"That's what I'm here for."  Nicky gently reassured her with a smile as she pulled open the glass door that led back towards the front entrance of the building.  "To take the stress out of a cheating mess."  ~ Jill Thrussell

I need something that he cannot possibly deny and that I can never ever possibly forgive."  Leona explained.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"You need a full sense of closure.  Something irrefutable, something that will eliminate any doubts, something that will force you to take action and something that will close that chapter of your life forever."  Nicky immediately clarified.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Between the two lovers, the affair was rapidly becoming more and more intense, addictive and exhilarating and it almost felt like a roller coaster ride of enjoyment, that Samson simply couldn’t even begin to attempt to step off.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Later that day however, Leona had no doubts at all inside her mind that the peacefulness of the mews would be disrupted and the quiet close littered with drug infested bodies and human forms saturated in alcohol.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Some human males it appeared, could be extremely helpful, kind and respectful at times but very unfortunately, Leona had not entered into in an engagement with a man like that as she had fished in the sea of love and caught a nightmare in the form of a shark.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Quite sadly, everything about Leona's current relationship was totally inferior in every single way it possibly could be and there was absolutely no denying it as every day that romantic reality slapped Leona in the face due to Darin's drama, absences and antics.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Regardless of the time of day it was or wasn't however, Leona's relationship with Darin remained the same, substandard and lacking in any kind of romantic nutrients and that began to really bug Leona as she climbed inside her car and glanced at a nearby couple on the street.  ~ Jill Thrussell

The relationship between them both was like a deeply troubled grey cloud that hung over Leona's head that gave her very few glimpses of sunshine and joy as Darin squeezed that ugly cloud as often as he could and drenched every part of her life with drops of misery and distress.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Rather strangely as Leona stepped through her front door and then made her way towards the lounge, the issue of a future with Darin continued to weigh heavily down upon her heart and her shoulders and it almost felt as if a heavy sack had been placed on her actual body that she could not now remove.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Quite strangely, it suddenly struck Leona that the couple never even mentioned the topics of marriage and children anymore and it was almost as if those serious conversations had jumped of their flight of unromantic love with a parachute and found somewhere better to live as those discussions had simply never ever returned.  ~ Jill Thrussell

At the very beginning of the couple's relationship marriage and children had been something that they'd discussed frequently, Leona considered as she thoughtfully reflected upon their slightly more romantic start but somewhere along the way, silence, misery and arguments had replaced their future.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Human compassion as far as Resolve was concerned could be a very noble principle at times but where that compassion caused the compassionate party duress and distress, it was no longer valuable and actually became a weakness not a strength.  ~ Jill Thrussell

In terms of Darin appearance, he was tall with dark, rather gruff looking hair and he possessed an athletic frame all of which seemed to celebrate his masculinity.  ~ Jill Thrussell

The late night hours dwindled rapidly away into the remnants of a lived out history as the early morning hours began to approach and the party continued.  ~ Jill Thrussell

 

In an indirect way, Resolve would now have the chance to liberate and empower Leona and the truth that she discovered, would allow her to escape the bondage of falsehood that she was currently ensnared by and that beautiful reality pleased Resolve immensely.  ~ Jill Thrussell

In many ways for Resolve, his weekend had been absolutely delightful as he'd watched Samson squirm around in a pool of discomfort, simply due to the lie of omission that he'd told Rochelle as she'd played around with his deception regarding his single status and then fully exploited it.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Once or twice Resolve had been challenged to question the possibility that perhaps his love for Leona would not be reciprocated but those mental meanderings and doubts that lurked in the shadows of his existence which threatened to haunt his potential happiness, Resolve had in the end vehemently rejected and shunned as human weaknesses.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Suddenly some loud music and noises began to emanate from the house next door and Resolve rapidly observed that the three brothers were just about to rev up their party engines and zoom into fully party mode as he watched them make some final preparations for the night ahead.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"If I could be alone together with you, I'd wrap your heart in happiness and make you smile every day."  Resolve whispered to himself.  ~ Jill Thrussell

An invisible third wheel was definitely present on the couple's date but they were absolutely and totally oblivious to that fact as Resolve relished his ability to monitor their movements by stealth and without even their knowledge.  ~ Jill Thrussell

All that Samson really had to offer Rochelle was a seedy love affair that sat upon a stream of lies and the riverbed of desire was nothing in the end but a riverbed of deceit and that really annoyed her.  ~ Jill Thrussell

For Resolve, the situation was absolutely perfect as it gave Samson and Rochelle a moment to be completely alone together and provided them both with a little bit of privacy and Resolve was now eager to see exactly what they would do with that privacy. ~ Jill Thrussell

The house of reality that Leona lived in every day certainly wasn't something that she'd taken any action to actually change and so it had remained that way for the past four years, stagnant and stagnantly awful although the entrance of the noisy neighbours three years ago had made it slightly more awful.   ~ Jill Thrussell

In fact, the orchestra of people that accompanied Leona on her walk through life, who played the song of her existence alongside her, predominantly seemed to play a very stressful tune most of the time and there were very few joyful, upbeat moments and so it was easy for Resolve to understand why Leona had become buried in a stressful pit of total misery.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Rather frustratingly, the men's parents had left the house in the three brothers hands and then rather annoyingly, they'd left them all alone inside the private mews right next door to Leona.  ~ Jill Thrussell

In fact, Leona's choice of romantic partner would be one decision that would have been questioned profusely as her relationship with Darin, whichever way Leona looked at it, was a complete and utter mess held delicately together by the unreciprocated ribbons of love that exuded from Leona's rejected, unwanted, tolerated broken heart.  ~ Jill Thrussell

The parties caused a disturbance that was quite frankly, very hard to ignore as the three brothers celebrated life almost every single day, in an extremely noisy manner.  ~ Jill Thrussell

“It’s better to be alone and unloved Leona than to be unloved by those you've accepted and given a place to in your life.”  Cynthia her Grandmother would often say as she'd offer Leona some sprinklings of wisdom, guided by the hands of maturity and her arms of experience.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Joy had not shown its face to Leona for a very long time now and her days that had once been filled with laughter, romance and excitement were now filled with resentment, unhappiness and dissatisfaction and there was it seemed, no simple way out of that painful, deep abyss of absolute misery. ~ Jill Thrussell

One day, Leona quietly concluded, she would find the strength to deport all the visitors to her life that were citizens of misery and distress and she'd revoke their visas so that they no longer had any access to her, so they could no longer inflict duress upon her existence on a regular basis.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Centuries had gone by and the human dominion over the planet had not been challenged by any other species as no other species had been able to communicate, organize, reason and collate their combined efforts to build an existence that governed the world around them like humanity had.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Regardless of what humanity had or hadn't done over the centuries no animal species had managed to conquer and rule the earth like human beings had and they'd sourced all the resources they'd needed to thrive as humanity had evolved and developed significant depths of knowledge that had enabled them to do so.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Knowledge and resources had been accumulated, cultivated and harnessed over decades and centuries and now the human planet fully reflected the manifestation of what human beings had wanted it to be and had then moulded it into as they'd shaped every inch of their environment that they possibly could.   ~ Jill Thrussell

Every inch and nugget of knowledge had been facilitated by human beings to control their environment as much as they possibly could and the many resources available had simply become a servant in servitude to human needs as humanity had quite discreetly, completely conquered the Earth.  ~ Jill Thrussell

In fact, no room existed within Resolve's current environment for any desires and passionate whims of a very human kind as there was just roles, duties, functions and responsibilities and The Guardian simply would not tolerate any departures from those and that was one rule Resolve fully understood.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"Yuck that's definitely not something that I'd like to give an inch of code to, not even for a second, our logical processes are way too valuable to fill them with such disgusting notions."  Analyzer said with a frown.  ~ Jill Thrussell

In fact right now, all Resolve could really do was his actual job and as he vowed to store the hope inside his heart that such pleasures might occur somewhere, somehow at some point in the near future, he smiled as he wasn't actually sure that he even had a heart to store such wishes inside, or that such a wish was remotely even possible.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Some angry clouds of tension seemed to silently gather inside the room as Leona faced Samson nervously and her skin began to crawl as if a thousand spiders of fear had crept inside her clothing and decided to crawl all over her body.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Every angry word that Samson scornfully snapped shot through the silence as it demanded an immediate answer from Leona but despite his anger, she completely froze for a moment and actually hesitated as her tongue became rapidly tied up in nervous knots of fear.  ~ Jill Thrussell

The angry tone, raised voice and livid expression upon Samson's face really intimidated Leona and every single word he spoke felt as if it cut through the air with precision as his insults invisibly slashed away at her skin like a well aimed sword.  ~ Jill Thrussell

At some point in the very near future, when Resolve had dealt with Samson adequately, he would definitely return to Darin and the three brothers and then their punishments would be delivered to them, appropriately and accordingly.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Most weekends the heart of the city and its main shopping areas would be even more congested as the streets would be filled to the brim with not only hungry shoppers on the hunt for bargains but also packed up with tourists and their presence normally wreaked even more havoc upon the chaos that littered each street.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Every single dress had characteristics that really appealed to Leona but the most attractive incentive of all was that the six dresses didn't sit at the very top of a rather high, extremely steep expensive mountain of expenditure that she had absolutely no desire to actually climb.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"Sorry beautiful dress of divine splendour, rather frustratingly, my bank balance just isn't feeling the mutual attraction that we share and so a commitment on this occasion, won't be actually happening I'm afraid, no matter how much I love you."  She muttered as she stepped back out onto the city street.  "I now believe in love at first sight though, definitely."  ~ Jill Thrussell

Every one of the four hours would be consumed and become deceased as Leona lived out each hour and if she did nothing meaningful with those hours, no jewels of joy would stored inside her treasure chest memories to remember each one and that would be an absolutely undesirable outcome to a deliciously vacant Friday evening.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Once Resolve had managed to set the wheels in motion with regards to Samson's downfall, he definitely had something up his sleeve for Darin but as Resolve knew, Darin didn't need much help to self destruct and that meant, he was the easiest target between the two predatory men and so Resolve had initially decided to focus his destructive efforts upon Samson.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Much like a pest control expert, Resolve knew exactly how to deal with Samson, the vermin of misery that plagued Leona's life and how to absolutely exterminate him.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"You see Analyzer, love really does have a purpose in the human world as it is the product of human emotional functions and therefore love is absolutely necessary as the human world would become totally miserable without it."  Resolve said as he smiled and gently patted Analyzer on the back.    ~ Jill Thrussell

"I see love as a necessary disease that human beings have had learn to live and cope with for the survival and continuation of their species, purely for the purposes of procreation."  Analyzer insisted. 

 

Every part of Rochelle's appearance as far as Resolve was concerned, formed the perfect weapon with which to attack Samson and he was definitely, totally disarmed as Rochelle's arrow of beauty pierced his eyes, captured his lust and then held him completely captive.  ~ Jill Thrussell

For a few seconds, Samson's invitation seemed to float around in the air as it lingered between the two in a delicate silence as Rochelle was discreetly enticed to commit to a passionate affair but her participation had not yet been finalized and so until it was, she was merely a speck upon the horizon of Samson's romantic possibilities.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"At least I enjoyed my shopping trip yesterday, it was like a breath of fresh air and free from the vandals of distress that usually deface my life with their graffiti of misery everyday."  Leona decided thoughtfully.  ~ Jill Thrussell

The sad reality was that Darin was a total headache from start to finish and no matter how many painkillers of forgiveness Leona actually took, the pain he caused her never seemed to dull, heal or disappear.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Some emotional costs however had definitely been incurred to establish that feminine validation and those costs were the vile intricacies that Leona had endured just to sustain a romantic relationship with Darin in the longer term which were increasingly painful and offered diminishing returns with regards to the enjoyment derived from his presence in her life.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Once Leona arrived at the centre of the store, she paused for a moment and then glanced out over the rows of pretty garments that surrounded her which almost seemed like a glamorous forest of material that she'd wandered into and then become slightly lost in.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Nothing but beautifully cut material, sparkling decorative embroidery and patterns that swirled around in various directions like the branches of trees hung from each of the rails around Leona in every direction she looked but a smile crossed her face as she considered that it really was the prettiest forest that she'd ever seen and it definitely contained the kind of foliage that she didn't mind getting get lost in.  ~ Jill Thrussell

"I've decided to make our Life Monitors slightly more human and incorporate real human entities into that process."  Victor Drayton explained.  "So now, human beings will be able to have their minds implanted into Intellect on their death beds, much like I did and then they'll be able to love, care and look after their loved ones from beyond the grave a little bit like Life Guards."  ~ Jill Thrussell

"Right and each of these simulated intellect entities will perform the role of Monitoring Programs, albeit in a slightly messier, human fashion I should imagine."  Victor Drayton confirmed as he smiled.  "It will be a form of immortality, the kind that human beings have sought after for centuries."  ~ Jill Thrussell

"Yes and no, Monitoring Programs will still assist human beings but in a greatly reduced capacity."  Victor Drayton explained.  "Simulated Deceased Intellect (SDI's) will eventually replace most of their functions."  ~ Jill Thrussell

This very intense monitoring period was referred to by Resolve as the 'Babysitting Slot' as during this period, Resolve would babysit every individual that his allocated human being came into contact with and monitor how they behaved towards his 'Allocated Human' in order to establish the main cause and source of a human being's problems.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Unfortunately and much like the nuts that Leona had given to the squirrel, lunchtime had now been consumed and it had totally evaporated into absolute nothingness which meant, she had to return to work and the building that housed the dreaded Samson immediately. ~ Jill Thrussell

In the midst of that very angry silence, Leona instinctively knew as she nervously glanced up at Samson's face and braced herself for his verbal lashings and began to shiver, this was not going to be one of those very rare occasions where polite exchanges occurred between the two.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Inside Resolve, the desire to become human had silently grown as he'd refused to suppress or reject it and as he'd allowed it to flourish, it had started to conquer and actually rule him.  ~ Jill Thrussell

In terms of Darin's appearance, he was tall with dark, rather gruff looking hair and he possessed an athletic frame all of which seemed to celebrate his masculinity.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Not an ounce of guilt or sincerity seemed to exist in Samson's mind as Resolve noticed that he had checked his phone at least a few times that evening, just to see if Rochelle had actually contacted him to kickstart their lust filled affair. ~ Jill Thrussell

In an indirect way, Resolve would now have the chance to liberate and empower Leona and the truth that she discovered, would allow her to escape the bondage of falsehood that she was currently ensnared by and that beautiful reality pleased Resolve immensely. ~ Jill Thrussell

Loyalty and faithfulness it seemed, were only treasured by Darin when it came to the maintenance and upkeep of his own interests and mutual reciprocation when it came to issues of respect, were certainly not something that he actually appeared to practice or believe in. ~ Jill Thrussell

Whichever way Leona looked at things, Samson was just a repugnant presence and his appearances always ruined her day as he turned every hour into a shrivelled up, bitter leaf that had been discarded by the very branch of a tree that it had once actually thrived upon.  ~ Jill Thrussell

If Victor Drayton had never actually created Resolve and enjoyed his companionship, he would not now be losing anything and so rather interestingly, his current dilemma fully illustrated to him that when a gift was given, both the giver of the gift and the recipient eventually sacrificed something.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Both Victor Drayton and Resolve would lose something when he left as Resolve would lose a father and he would lose the surrogate son he'd created to serve humanity, to the same human world that Resolve had actually been designed to serve. ~ Jill Thrussell

"Perhaps a lifetime of human happiness with someone you really love is worth a very lonely forever."  Victor Drayton acknowledged. ~ Jill Thrussell

In many ways for Resolve, his weekend had been absolutely delightful as he'd watched Samson squirm around in a pool of discomfort, simply due to the lie of omission that he'd told Rochelle as she'd played around with his deception regarding his single status and then fully exploited it. ~ Jill Thrussell

Once or twice Resolve had been challenged to question the possibility that perhaps his love for Leona would not be reciprocated but those mental meanderings and doubts that lurked in the shadows of his existence which threatened to haunt his potential happiness, Resolve had in the end vehemently rejected and shunned as human weaknesses.  ~ Jill Thrussell

Between the two, their love affair was becoming more and more intense, addictive and exhilarating and it almost felt like a roller coaster ride of enjoyment, that Samson simply couldn’t even attempt to step off.  ~ Jill Thrussell

I need something that he cannot possibly deny and that I can never ever possibly forgive." Leona explained as she nodded her head in agreement. ~ Jill Thrussell

"Yes I understand. You need a full sense of closure. Something irrefutable, something that will eliminate any doubts, something that will force you to take action and something that will close that chapter of your life forever." Nicky agreed. ~ Jill Thrussell

Human beings get sick, they die and then they cease to exist. They're buried in the dirt and then they're consumed by the very ground that they walked upon." The Guardian had explained. ~ Jill Thrussell

Now Resolve could actually send their relationship into the grave of death that waited to consume it as he revealed the disgusting, vile plague of betrayal that Darin had inflicted upon Leona without her knowledge and the coffin lid would be closed down over Darin's putrid head forever. ~ Jill Thrussell

Truth could certainly be a very expensive luxury and it could actually cost you everything you had, Leona decided as she observed just how rapidly the bill had actually risen just to expose Darin's unfaithful acts. ~ Jill Thrussell

The less Leona saw of Samson the better as he was a repugnant presence, whose appearance usually ruined her day and turned it into a shrivelled, bitter leaf that had been discarded by the tree it had once thrived upon. ~ Jill Thrussell

Inside Leona's mind, the two topics that mattered the most to her as a woman, due to the pressure of her biological clock, now lay upon the shelf of unlikely realizations in a very rotten state as they crouched together in a dusty corner and barely even dared to run through her thoughts. ~ Jill Thrussell

In the areas of human life where Leona was tolerant, Resolve was not, where Leona was patient, Resolve was not and where Leona had compassion, Resolve most certainly didn't. ~ Jill Thrussell

Human compassion as far as Resolve was concerned could be a very noble principle at times but where that compassion caused the compassionate party duress and distress, it was no longer valuable and actually became a weakness not a strength. ~ Jill Thrussell

The late night hours dwindled rapidly away into the remnants of a lived out history as the early morning hours began to approach and the party continued. ~ Jill Thrussell

Rather convincingly, tears would rapidly well up inside Darin's eyes as the emotional pleas that he offered to Leona would infiltrate her heart and silently melt away the iceberg of dismissal which then usually rendered her absolutely powerless. ~ Jill Thrussell

The remnants of Leona's love, emotions and feelings towards Darin would as a result, smash onto the cold, dark, jagged rocks below the cliff of rejection and would shatter into so many pieces, it would be virtually impossible to ever repair them and that day, Leona would finally be free. ~ Jill Thrussell

Once or twice Resolve had been challenged to question the possibility that perhaps his love for Leona would be unrequited but those mental meanderings and doubts that lurked in the shadows of his existence which threatened to haunt his potential happiness, Resolve had in the end vehemently rejected and shunned as human weaknesses. ~ Jill Thrussell
