A new beginning - September 2017 / March 2018
After graduating from California State University, he wasn't able to find the suitable job for him. He decided to make an impulsive decision, a decision that will change his entire life. He decided to move to Los Santos. He moved into a small condo in Downtown LS and bought himself a 1988 BMW E30 325i Sedan. He was broke but at least he was learning how to stand on his own.He was looking actively for jobs and found it on a careers website. He didn't even think about a minute before applying. Luckily, he got the job at BoTS. It wasn't the right job for him, but he didn't have any other choice.
After a month full of training, Nathan finally got his promotion but at that time, BoTS wasn't doing well because of the fifty grand bonus scandals and protests. Nathan didn't like to take a part in the protests, but he was afraid to lose his job and he was quite scared to stand up against his supervisors. Nathan got a call from Lawson. He wanted Nathan to grab a tow truck and join the protest in front of the city hall. It was a mess. All available tow truck units were in front of the city hall, shouting for their boss. After that protest, government changed the BoTS Management. Nathan didn't get along with the new management and new policies. He instantly made another impulsive decision. He resigned from BoTS.
He was having a tough time. Later on, he started to flip cars for living. He was earning much more than his previous job but the income wasn't stable. He wanted a nine-to-five job with stable income. After two months, Nathan gave up. He decided to give another try at BoTS. This time it was lightly different. Instead of the old management, his old friend Thomas Warren and Nathan Moreau were managing the department. He was earning enough money and he was happy until he saw her at a parking lot.
Who am I? - March 2018 / April 2018
Nathan stopped by at Los Santos DMV for his new car. At that time he saw two girls sitting on a bench, staring at Nathan. One of them was complimenting to Nathan. One of them approached to Nathan. It was Chelsea Grey. Nathan knew her because of his old friend Chris Hawkins. Chelsea introduced himself and her friend Rachel Monroe. Nathan was about to make the biggest mistake of his life. They invited Nathan to their house. Nathan couldn't resist their offer. After a short tour of their house, they asked few questions to Nathan like where do you live, what do you do for living. Nathan's answers didn't impress them at all. After a short conversation with Chris, Nathan left their house. After a day or two, Nathan was chilling at the beach after exhausting day at work, he received a call from Chris.He wanted to hang out with Nathan. Nathan invited him to the beach. They had a short conversation about Rachel and Nathan, then he called Chelsea and Rachel to come over at the beach.Instead of compliments, this time Rachel was acting like an asshole to Nathan. After fifteen minutes Nathan couldn't stand her and left the beach. Was it a some sort of a relationship tactic? Nathan didn't know until he received a call from Rachel. Rachel told Nathan that he got a new job at SEMC and she said "We should celebrate this!" Nathan grabbed two coffees and made his way to SEMC. At first, Nathan didn't want to go but he clearly didn't want to break Rachel's heart, so he headed inside. When Rachel saw the coffees, she suddenly put the coffees aside and held Nathan's hand and said "Come, I want to show you my workplace. " Suddenly, Rachel gently pulled Nathan inside of an inpatient room and locked the door. You can imagine what happened afterwards.
After that, things got quite complicated for them. Rachel was typically expecting a serious relationship from Nathan. That led Nathan to make another impulsive decision. Nathan bought an engagement ring and proposed to her. As Nathan expected, she said yes. After that they headed to Rachel's sister's house. Rachel told that she got engaged. They were not happy and said it was too early for it. They were right, but Nathan and Rachel were dumb and young to realize that. Few hours after, two lads came out of nowhere. Emilio Moretti and James Reed. He didn't care about them at first, they seemed to be decent lads. Until James Reed threatened Nathan in his own flat. To be honest, Emilio and James were the biggest influencers of Nathan's life because Nathan wanted to compete with them. Nathan forgot one thing, he didn't have enough money and they were so rich. At that time, Emilio had a Koenigsegg Agera S, James had a Bugatti Veyron and Nathan had a Porsche 911 991.1 GT3 RS. Nathan was already struggling to keep his Porsche because of Rachel's expenses. He needed more money so he pulled the trigger on a new job. He became a CEO at JGC Logistics. But even that job wasn't able to cover her expenses. It was all for her and money. Nathan has lost himself in a very busy life. He was working at three companies at once. He was making sacrifices and putting his own needs as a person aside. He was under more pressure and stress that his own body can handle and so his body was giving a signal that he is not in balance any longer. He also learned that life worked better if he stopped being his true self for making her dreams come true. Nathan couldn't handle the expenses anymore so he decided to sell his dream car to someone who will change Nathan's life forever.
It started with a car, it ended because of a car - April 2018 / July 2018
Nathan listed his car up for sale, meanwhile all of his friends were making fun of him because of the GT3 RS decision, especially the lads in LSMA. Few days after, he received a call from someone named Julie Lawrence.She said she needed a ride because she didn't want to leave her car at Los Santos DMV. Even though Nathan didn't like the idea of picking her up from her place, he went to where she was. When Nathan arrived to Pershing Square, she was standing there with a huge smile on his face. Nathan knew something was special about this person. She was examining the interior of the Porsche like a five year old. She was impressed. Nathan gave her a short test drive and explained why he is selling his dream car. They finished the deal, and Nathan drove her back to her place. She had a 2018 Mercedes-AMG E63 S and she was kind enough to let Nathan to go for a test drive around the block. After that, Nathan got back to his house. After selling his dream car, Nathan bought a Mercedes-Benz GLA45 to replace Rachel's old crappy car and bought a summerhouse at Palomino Creek. Now they had to renovate and buy furnitures for the summerhouse, what a smart move made by Nathan.
Few days after, Rachel and Chelsea called Nathan to their summerhouse. Nathan was in a bad state financially back then so he pulled the trigger on a '68 Ford Mustang 302. As he was driving his car, he pulled to the side to pick a stranger who needed a ride. Funny enough, after a minute that stranger stabbed Nathan few times and took Nathan's wallet. Luckily Rachel and Chelsea didn't wait for Nathan to come, and they found Nathan on the way to their summerhouse. He was in a really bad shape. They did the first intervention and took him to the hospital afterwards. Next day, Rachel left Nathan in that condition and went to Paris for a short vacation. When Nathan woke up, he didn't have any idea about what happened.He was mad at Rachel for leaving him behind, especially in that time. Nathan wanted to get a revenge. So he mailed his ring to her office with a goodbye note, and he kicked her out of his house. He decided to move on to bigger and better things. After a week, he got a job in JGC as a Vice President.
After two days of being a vice president, they forced Nathan to resign. Being a vice president in such a big company was stressful and Nathan couldn't handle that. He sold his house and moved to that house in Palomino Creek. All he wanted to do is live a simple life with no big expenses, no stress, no nothing. He also resigned from BoTS. He was working at LSMA at the same time, and it was the right job for him.He was earning $40,000 a month and most importantly he was having fun with his friends. Nathan's life was getting better and better. Not only he found the right job for him, he also found his dream woman.Unlike Rachel, she was kind, smart, funny, supportive, and honest. He felt like he would do anything to wake up to that smile. Shortly after she moved into Nathan's house. They were not in a relationship, but they were kinda flirting time to time.
A huge milestone in Nathan's life is getting his dream car for second time. He is a huge Porsche enthusiast. He has had few Porsche's in his life and luckily the 991.2 GT2 RS was one of them. It had every single thing that he wants on a GT2 RS, GT Silver colour, weissach package, and most importantly, it was so cheap that he didn't have to worry about putting miles on it. Before he bought his GT2 RS, he had a Gallardo Superleggera and his daily AMG GT R. End of the day, he didn't think that he could afford a GT2 RS. At the age of 24, he bought his ultimate dream car. At the same time, he bought the cheapest GT2 RS in the world with no issues. What could be worse.
He felt like it was the right time to open up his feelings to Julie. Two fast cars, great road trip and at the end of the road trip, he was going tell her right away. Well, things didn't go well at that night. He decided to show her his dream car. They went inside the garage. She said."Oh, is it the same car? Yeah, I think it is." Nathan didn't have a clue about what she was talking about. She added."Nathan, this is my ex-boyfriend's car and I did something bad on its hood." Meantime, inner Nate is like "Right, at the age of 24, you broke up with your fiancé because of your old GT3 RS and here is another one. Thanks god, that's what I absolutely needed."He didn't know what to say. He just took the keys of his GT R and drove away. That was the worst car drive of his life, and he has been in many accidents before, but at least in those cases it was just his car being destroyed, it was now his heart. There was no turning back, after a short conversation with his good old pal Khan, he opened up his feelings to her and he got friend zoned.
After that, Khan and Nate headed to LSMA's headquarters to drink something, but things didn't go as planned. Khan had a panic attack. She did the first intervention to Khan. Khan and Julie had a small conversation about Nate. Later on Khan told Nathan that " She loves you dude, but she is not ready for it. " Was it a lie or was it real? Nate still doesn't know. She wanted to stay friends but Nate didn't. Nate wanted to stay away from her for a while. So he came up with a vacation lie. He bought a overnight flight ticket to Paris, France.
My calamity is my providence, outwardly it is fire and vengeance, but inwardly it is light and mercy - July 2018 / September 2018
Nate landed in Paris, France, at 02:30 AM. Instead of leaving his bag at the hotel room and get a sleep, he went to the first bar he could find. He was all out of breath. He felt used and brokenhearted for second time. He didn't go back to that house because for him it wasn't his home anymore. Without her everything felt meaningless. On top of that, Nate's bank account wasn't too happy with the unexpected Paris trip. He wanted to stay for a month or two but he wasn't able to afford that. He kept drinking until he blacked out. Next day he woke up in a hotel room with a stranger. She seemed happy about it. Her happiness didn't last long. Nate gave his number to her, left five hundred euros on the bed, and left the hotel room. Nate had no clue about what happened that night but at that night, Nate told what happened about between him and Julie to that stranger. After spending another day at the hotel, he decided to flight back to LS.
He saw his BMW F90 M5 in the driveway, his house was empty. Her keys were on the desk. He didn't see her for few months. Nate was still feeling useless. Khan came up with an idea. He wanted to join the Thailand Cave Rescue. After that idea, they packed up their stuff and diving gears, headed to LSIA. Luckily, they were able to find an overnight flight ticket to Thailand. Because of his medical back ground Khan was going to take a part in the medical team and Nate was going to take a part in the rescue team. They landed in Thailand in 8 July at 05.00 AM. After a short briefing, Nate and six divers went into the cave. Visibility was that bad you couldn't see the rocks until you actually hit it. They successfully reached to the flooded part of the cave with a stretcher. It didn't have only one section. There was also sections that they had to improvise harnesses for the children. They spent over ten minutes for just one obstacle and try to find their way out. They eventually got out of the cave but it was a slow process. After Nate and the other two divers came out they took the children to hospital immediately. They didn't let Nate to dive again and they replaced Nate's team with other divers. Nate joined the engineer team after his successful rescue attempt. Few days after they got back in LS with one piece.
