Clare [grn-up]: thanks, you Shitgoose .... See ya
(Metallica HQ - San Rafel, CA )
Clare [grn-up]: hey everyone sorry I'm late
Roadie: late again, Clare?
Clare [grn-up]: I'm sorry mom, I really need to start to get out of my awkward zone & start acting more of my age better, so fans & critics respect me a bit more
Roadie: Clare, let me tell you something that I would've told you back in 2011, I saw these little kids at one of the Meet n Greets before you went to rehearsal with the guys, one of them asked "who was your greatest role model when you were a kid"
Clare [grn-up]: I told them my role models were & still my friends & family
Roadie: exactly & that's when I knew those kids are going to have someone to look up to because she didn't change for who she is, so Clare..... Everyone here loves you for who you are .... It doesn't matter what other fans & music critics think about you & your awkwardness ..... All I'm just saying is be yourself & keep being weird till you get old n' grey
Clare [grn-up]: uhhhh mom, I'm immortal remember???
Roadie: Ohh right, best get to the guys
Clare [grn-up]: bye, I'll come & get you if my bass needs a fix

Nikki: well with that aside, lets fucking party in the backyard, the Supermoon is about to start soon
(Later during the party/Supermoon viewing)
Clare [grn-up]: Korey, Nikki... this is the best party ever, next year is going to be better
Korey & Nikki: you mean the big
3 - 0?
Clare [grn-up]: yes the big 3 - 0
Nikki: so what are you going to do when that time comes???
Clare [grn-up]: keep on being myself & not giving a shit about what anyone thinks on what I do
.... I just go by my mom's words & start being more awesome & never change a thing about myself
Korey: one last thing, here is a gift from Nikki & myself
Clare [grn-up]: (opens gift) no way, it's a scrapbook ^_^
Nikki: yea, it dates back from the year you were born, the day you met me
Korey: don't forget about me Nik
Nikki: don't worry I didn't forget about you Kor....the first Metallica concert we went together as Met Club members in high school, you joining the band, & the important part is at the back .....
(Flips thru the book)
Clare [grn-up]: (sees a pic of herself, Korey, & Nikki) Guys....I don't know what to say but if it wasn't for you both I wouldn't be here right now.....you two are like the siblings I never had....thank you both for getting thru the sad times, the happy times, the funny times, & most of all the kickass times we have together & we will still have them to years to come (hugs them both)
Cliff (older) : sooooo Clare, is there really a Samuel del fuckface, or did you just made that up?
Clare [grn-up]: (heavily breathing)
