Epilogue: Pete Black

Pete graduated from NYU and was offered a job as a film editor for a Los Angeles based production company. He packed his bags and moved to California. On his first day at work, Pete met Lena, a fellow film editor. Pete and Lena hit it off right away and began to spend time together. After knowing each other for only three months, Pete and Lena went to Las Vegas and eloped. During his and Lena's next visit to Vegas two months later, Pete entered a poker tournament. He managed to beat seasoned poker professionals and won the $2.5 million first prize. The tournament he was in was shown on the World Poker Tour. Pete and Lena decided to start their own production company with his winnings. Just as Keeping It Real Productions opened for business, Lena learned she was pregnant. She and Pete were overjoyed with the news. Isabella Black was born on February 14, 2010. Pete was on top of the world. He was doing what he loved, had a somewhat successful production company, was married to a beautiful woman he was very much in love with, and had a beautiful daughter. Pete's happiness wasn't to last.

A month before Isabelle's first birthday, Lena was died suddenly of a brain aneurysm. Pete was devastated over the loss of his wife. If it weren't for Isabella's existence, Pete would probably had gone on a downward spiral. With a daughter to raise, it just wasn't an option for him. With the help of Lena's and his parents, Pete coped with suddenly raising his beloved Isabella by himself. He sold his production company and devoted himself to his daughter. For the next two years Pete lived day by day, not letting anyone new in his and Isabella's lives. A chance meeting at the grocery store changed that.

Pete's grocery cart accidentally hit another one. To his surprise the cart belonged to Mary Anne Spier. He hadn't seen her since their second year at NYU and was thrilled to see her again. They talked and made plans to meet for coffee the next day. They started to become friends again and an old feeling came back to Pete. Pete introduced Mary Anne and Isabella to each other. Luckily Isabella liked Mary Anne and that encouraged Pete to ask Mary Anne out on an actual date. She accepted and eventually moved in with Pete and Isabella. Pete and Mary Anne were married two years after coming back into each other's lives and welcomed a daughter named Alma to the world eight months after their wedding.

The family moved to New York City a few months after Alma's birth to be closer to the Blacks and the Spiers. Pete became a stay at home dad while Mary Anne taught classes at NYU and worked on her first major academic paper. When Alma was old enough to go to school, Pete got back into film making and started a documentary film company. The family lived happily ever after.

My birthday is less than a month away. The parentals said I could have a major party if I wanted one. I'm still thinking about it.

Speaking of parties, Brains Mason is going to have one soon. Brains isn't my favorite person in the world. She hasn't been for a long time now. A party is still a party though. I promised myself that I wouldn't be as serious as I have been during the school year. Going to that party is a way to do it. Maybe I could talk Emily into going with me.

My future NYU roommate and I are going to meet up sometime in August before move in day. We want to get to know each other before we start sharing a room together.

Too bad this isn't going to happenCollapse )

Graduation came and went. I gave a very decent speech if I do say so myself. I'm not going to post the whole thing here since I've got the whole thing on tape, but I will post my closing words. Follow your dreams and follow your hearts. You'll be happier for it. A part of me feels like a hypocrite, but I'm not exactly sure why.

During my graduation dinner, Uncle John and Aunt Felicia announced that they didn't have to go back Japan. That had to be the best graduation gift. The other stuff I got was sweet, but I wouldn't trade having my aunt and uncle back for anything.

Emily went to Block Island with some her Beacon friends. I guess I miss her. I really haven't thought about it much.

I've been enjoying most of my freedom. I spent most of my time so far working, but I don't mind it. I'm saving up for any unexpected NYU expenses that might occur during the year.

I got that interview with Mary Anne yesterday. I had to promise her that if she didn't like what was mentioned in the interview I wouldn't put in the final product. She seemed okay with what was said though. I realized a couple of things while I was filming. No matter how hard I try, I'm never going to be 100% over her. It's something I have to accept. I also realized that I have romantic feelings for Emily. I'm not in love with her yet, however I know that it's only a matter of time until I am. These feelings have been growing since we started working on the documentary together, but I only figured it out yesterday. We're going to prom together. Maybe I'll surprise her with a kiss.

I got Most Serious in the class superlatives election. If anybody told me in middle school that I would end up being voted Most Serious, I doubt I would have believe it. I never realized how much I've changed since then. Another thing for me to think about.

It was a tough choice, but I've finally decided where to go to college. Although USC is an awesome school, I figured that I would miss Mom, Dad, Murray, and Uncle John and Aunt Felicia (when they return from Japan) too much and would probably end up transferring to NYU anyway, so I decided to skip that step and just go to NYU.

The documentary interviews are going well. There is one person I would like to interview. I think I'm ready to be alone with her, but after what happened during the eighth grade documentary I can pretty much guarantee that she wouldn't want to be interviewed.

Emily is subject of confusion for me nowadays. I used to only think of her as a friend, but I'm starting to think of her as more than just a friend. I wish I could talk to Luke about this, but he's unavailable right now. Mary Anne would have been a good second choice, but I doubt she'd want to listen to me talk about Emily especially with what happened between the two of us. I guess I could always talk to my Dad if I'm desperate.

I'm taking Murray to the zoo later on today so my mom can has some alone time with my dad for Mother's Day. It's been a while since I went there, hopefully it hasn't changed that much. Time for breakfast.

Yesterday I did an interview for the documentary with Alan Gray without Emily helping me. It was the first interview that I've done without her. I can do the interviews just fine without her, but I prefer to have her around while I do them. Why is that?

It's been a while. I'm getting over Mary Anne. I won't go into details right now if ever, because I'm afraid that I'll suffer a setback. I know that we'll become friends again someday, but not now. Seeing her in AP Chemistry is hard, but I'm getting through it.

I've been spending most of my time lately with Emily, working on the documentary. She's been wonderful. I'm glad that Em's helping me out. I'm thinking about asking her to the prom.

I got accepted to both NYU and USC. Both of them have decent film programs, but I don't know which one to go to. NYU is closer to my family. I wouldn't miss them so much if I went there. USC is as far away from this small town as I can get. I still feel trapped here sometimes. Maybe talking about it with Luke could help.
