2021.10.25 00:32 A_Hawaiian_Shirt Miami Night
Kimmy arrived at the hotel door, only to find it locked. She tried the knob several times but got nothing; only the soulless lack of turning in the humid summer night. A faint gust blew down the midnight street, rustling her sun dress. Through the neon glow of the surf shop behind her, she was able to see the printed instructions of the self-serve hotel.
CHECK YOU EMAIL FOR YOUR DIGITAL CHECK-IN. YOUR CODE WILL BE TEXTED IN TIME FOR YOUR ARRIVAL.
She didn’t know when booking from the Midwest that her Miami hotel would have a digital check-in. No clerk, no human interaction, nothing. She cursed at her cell that was struggling to hold a signal. Each call to the support number ceased to the drifting dead zones, and each frequent glance to the empty streets surrounding her seemed to heighten her anxiety. A sports car quietly passed, the faint engine chugging as she pleaded for her phone to work. The support line rang indefinitely again, and she hung up frustrated. What a getaway this turned out to be.
She checked both ways, at the sidewalks covered in blackened chewed gum. The pictures online painted a different sort of scene, and she felt foolish for expecting better without seeing it in person. Now she was stranded in a state she’d never been in, locked out of her own hotel like a typical tourist. She felt foolish and scared. If only she could get into the room and lock the door, everything would be alright.
She decided to take a walk, maybe get something to eat. The streets were shady and shadowy at night, but the neon glow of 24/7 shops added a shred of comfort. She walked down Ocean Drive, with a plethora of restaurants with dining extended into a once heavily trafficked street. She bumped into a man who grunted, his face mostly disguised by a Panama hat and designer sunglasses. He slurped at what looked like a street dish in a paper boat, shoulders hunched and seizing with every bite. Only when she got closer did she realize it wasn’t a to-go container, it was a face. And he was eating it.
The man’s split jaw separated vertically and crunched on his meal, a guttural groan emanating from him. She froze, and he paused to look at her with his ghoulish eyes. He roared, and her stomach weakened as her whole body crumbled in fear. She ran back to the hotel, the only shred of familiarity serving as a beacon of salvation. Her flip flops slapped with each step as she bounded forward, the growling growing behind her.
Ahead the door waved open; a janitor with headphones leisurely taking out the trash.. He saw her running and waved her in, eyes wide at the maniacal tourist ghoul. The door slammed just as he dove for her. As he mercilessly beat the door, her phone chimed.
YOUR DOOR CODE IS 7246. ENJOY YOUR STAY AT SUNSET HOTEL.

I purchased a Exway X1 Pro about1 year ago. I do not ride very often, but all of the sudden I started experiencing a disconnected error on my controller and I have to re-pair to the board regurally. I updated the firware several times and I swapped out my hub motor for my Riot motor and still experiencing the same issue. Any suggestions?

2021.10.25 00:32 Feisty_Philosophy_72 the truth about the YouTube couple Alyssa and Charles forever
Ready to share my story of when I lived with Alyssa from the “famous “ YouTube couple alyssa and Charles forever and how they are glorified for being a “happy loving couple” when all I saw was mental and physical abuse.
it’s been years since it happened and it still is hard to get through so I thought maybe getting it off my chest would help..Alyssa was my best friend, we moved to az together when we were only 22 from wi.
About a month in she met Charles. I loved him at first but as someone who was in an abusive relationship myself in the past, I saw red flags. Before they even started dating he had the passwords to social media accounts, told her that she wasn’t “thick enough” for him, so she was constantly worried about her weight. He would constantly play mind games with her like he would ask fans on Instagram if he should “dump her or not” and used texting apps to text himself and tell her it was his “ex” texting him to hurt her feelings, unfollow her for no reason, judge what she wore and the pictures she posted and if he didn’t like them he would go in and delete them. They fought a lot before even dating and would keep her by showering her with gifts after the fight.
2 months in he slowly stopped letting her go out with me so I was going out alone in the new city we moved to together. One night he did let her go out only to blow up her phone calling us whores and hoes for no reason. That same night he came over once we got home (even though she asked him not to) and he refused to leave. she felt unsafe, and told me to my face that “this is why she isn’t allowed to have friends” a guy I had over tried to intervene to make charles leave and Charles threatened to get the gun out of his car and shoot him.
Alyssa begged him to let her go out for my birthday a couple weeks later and he spied on us the whole night and called us whores again just for dancing and having fun on my birthday. After that she told me he was physically abusing her and showed me the bruises. she tried to leave him for good but he was threatening to kill her and we had to call the cops bc we were terrified!!!
He told her all their relationship problems were my fault and she had to pick between him and me. Her friend of years that she moved across the country with and him- a man she only knew for 4 months. She chose him. after only 4 months of living in my dream state I had to move back to wi bc I was terrified and felt so incredibly alone. Charles had already moved in an hour after I left. 3 years later and We haven’t talked since.
Now they make videos mocking abuse, like: “I got beat up by my boyfriend prank” “I got beat up by a stranger in the parking lot prank” and say that I made all this up because I was “jealous” and “tried to get in the way of her goals” all I ever wanted was for her to be safe. It breaks my heart every single day knowing young girls are watching them thinking this is how a relationship should be because it’s not. I didn’t know what else to do back then and I still miss my friend so much , but she’s so far gone.
