Not being in control
Background and History:
Astrael grew up in the lush green English country side. For the beginning parts of his childhood everything was nothing less than perfect. He lived in his parent’s Edwardian mansion which was filled with warmth love and laughter. However, all of this changed when his father died in a plane crash when Astrael was 7 years old. From then on his mother would lock herself in her room for days on end, leaving Astrael to the various nannies, cooks and cleaners she had hired. It was then that Astrael realised that life was a choice; for even though we are all born into this world, we still are given the choice of whether we want to live it or not. We can either forge our destiny, or become disengaged and not truly live. It was then that Astrael key traits began to take root. He believed in not relying on others, on remembering he was his own creator, and to ultimately be in control of his life.
It took his mother a couple of years to get over the loss of her husband. However by that time Astrael was already the perfect honors student, captain of the fencing team and also chairman of the Debate Society. His overachiever’s attitude landed him a place in Cambridge University where he studied Law. It was there that he realised that he was bi-sexual. Having gone to an all boys highschool he had had flings and highschool romances with some of his classmates. But on arrival at Cambridge, he realised that he was also attracted to women.
After Cambridge he got a job working for a the leading law firm in London, Bakers&Aurington. He specialized in corporate law which entailed spending most of his time trying to find ways for various companies to escape from liability and in bending the law as much as possible leaving room for his clients to use such liberties to create profit.
When his mother told him of her plan to remarry, at first the idea made him uncomfortable, but then he accepted it and was happy for her. It was around that time that he started to feel as though he might be in love with his girlfriend Amy. However, this feeling of love quickly dissipated when he found out that she had cheated on him with two other guys.
With the whirlwind of breaking up with his girlfriend, and then losing a case for the second time at the House of Lords after an appeal, the bachelor weekend away which had been organised for his mother’s weekend away was a much needed distraction. It was on this trip that he met [name] and consequently slept with him. [name] was not like the other people he had dated, he was something, new and different, like a breath of fresh air. Something which is pure and untainted.
However, with the memory of his last relationship with Amy, and a loss of control which he had over his life over the past couple of months, an unsettling feeling of distrust is growing within Astrael, and he is started to feel as though something drastic must be done to keep his life from falling apart.
