*A/N THIS IS DEFINITELY AU. I AM WARNING YOU NOW, NAMES AND SITUATIONS MAY BE CHANGED. sorry for any upcoming mistakes or whatev. in languages, spelling and stuff. i just like the stories, but feel free to comment!
also, i think i need to give a little background to understand some characters' positions in the story, so
ok. Irina's mother, Erin, dated Russell from about 3 months before Irina was born until she was about 6 years old. then, she decided to actually dump the guy for his best friend, Nicholas. the AU part comes in b/c the 2 guys stayed friends. so, the beginning of the end...

Chapter 1

"Irushka," Elisabeth called from the kitchen. Irina didn't want to come. she wanted to stay in Suri's room and play. Irina's best friend of 8 (no, it was 9 now) years was celebrating her 9th birthday with a sleepover. Earlier, the birthday girl had winged a pillow at Irina for a comment she made; now the small pillow fight was a pillow RIOT. Taking a running start, Irina ran from the small hallway to the kitchen where Elisabet, Suri's mom, was. about 6 feet from the place Lis was sitting, Irina slid the rest of the way, nearly crashing into the woman after slipping on her socks. "Irina, come. Sit on my lap." The child did so, biting her lip. Maybe her Mama had called, telling Elisabeth she was on her way to pick Irina up early. She was infamous for getting homesick at sleepovers. (there were other things she was infamous for too, but that's another story)
Elisabeth told her, voice choking, "I just got a call from your aunt. There was a fire in your apartment building. your Mama and Nicholas,..." she took a deep breath before continuing. "they, died." Here, Elisabeth waited for a reaction. But Irina wasn't paying attention, her focus instead on the small shrieks of the other girls, fighting with feathery fury. Elisabeth took Irina's silence for shock. She went on. "When you leave tomorrow, Russell (do you remember Russ?) he'll pick you up."

It wasn't until MUCH later that Irina had found out the full story of that night. Nick had gotten drunk that night (which wasn't anything new), came home to the apartment and started a fight with her mother. still in a drunken fury, he had knocked Erin unconcious, locked her in the hallway closet, and torched the place. being too drunk to think of getting himself out, he died as well. meanwhile, Irina started her new life with Russell.

to tell you the truth i don't really know where i wanted to go w/ it either. it was just the beginning of something i had made up in my imagination. i think the 'imagination' explanation can also be used for the whole name thing too. :LOL: i mean, i had the situation planned out, but didn't really think about the name thing. :happy: oh well. first time writer, LONG time reader. btw, i :love: your fic past imperfect. are you going to finish? please do!!!!!!!!!!

oopsy for Past Imperfect:) And yes, i do write it now - just started yesteday, LOL.
Speaking of your fiction, i can give you rus names if you want - it just doesn't matter to the plot, you know. But you should keep on writting this story:) Forget the name thing for a moment, and then correct them. :)
