The Love Life of Niko Bellic
By Yousef A. Mustafa
“We’re all looking for that special someone.” – Niko Bellic
Niko Bellic, the man who has the fate of Liberty city at his fingertips, is searching for love. When he first arrived to the land of opportunities, he dated Mitchell, his first sweetheart, but she dumped him once he took her on a date in his Annihilator and jumped out at 60 meters off from ground level. Niko was soon introduced by a friend to Kate, a nice gal, and thought they would be perfect for each others, but soon found out that she was exactly like his first girlfriend, afraid from falling from a 60 meter high abandoned chopper.
It was one of those insane, but normal to Niko, days when he met the woman of his life. Niko was flying the skies of Liberty city, crashing into buildings like a hopeless romantic.
“I need to get laid” – Niko Bellic
Like most of the times how the ride aboard the Annihilator ends, Niko Bellic crashed into a building and began to fall. However, this time was different. As he fell, he spotted someone running, jumping from one roof top to another. Niko had never seen anyone like her in his life. Although he wanted to go after her, he was falling and had no way to stop the process. Niko took out his cell phone in an attempt to spawn an Annihilator.
“Come on work you piece of crap.” – Niko Bellic
With no luck, Niko fell on the ground breaking every bone in his body once again. Needless to say, the hospital took care of him in the miracles ICU, restoring him back to normal, and the brainless body known as Niko Bellic was loose in the Liberty City streets once again.
The first thing Niko did once he walked out of the hospital, he took out his cell, naturally, and dialed up his trusty Annihilator. This time, Niko planned not to jump until he found his mystery woman.
Night and day passed by as Niko searched relentlessly in Liberty City. But then again, in that city a day and night is consisted of 24 minutes. Then .. he found her. She was wearing while sweatpants, a black t-shirt and one red glove. But above all, she was fast.
Niko eyeballed her so hard, that she was eventually effected by his stair and fell off the building she was running on. Niko knew he had to save her, so he took the Annihilator for a dive towards her, faster than he had ever gone before …
Niko woke up in the ICU, still in one part. But this time, Niko realized he had a visitor next to him.. it was her. After seeing her face, Niko immediately recognized her.
“You’re Faith Connors!” Niko said surprised.
Niko and Faith were in the same class in the 5th grade. He remembered her clearly since on their first day of school, she opened the window next to her and climbed out to the roof. She then began to jump from one building to another, braking some bones here and there. In spite of the teacher’s warnings, Niko followed her. Niko opened the window next to him, and jumped out, falling 9 meters on the ground. That was the first and last time they met. It was also the first time Niko was taken to the hospital, his second home.
“Faith, Will you go out with me on a date?” he said with a big smerk on his rugged face.
“No.” She replied right away, intimidated by his creepy looks.
Niko’s smile turned upside down, but in a few seconds, Niko restored his smile with an alternative question: “Faith, Will you marry me?”
“.. You’re brain dead, aren’t you?”
Niko snapped replying: “hey, give me a break, I’m a visitor to this country.”
Faith soon got out from the hospital, and back into jumping from one rooftop to another. But she realized that she is being followed by him in his Annihilator, crashing into billboards with a ridicules smirk on his butt-ugly face.
“Fine,” Faith stopped running and confronted him: “I’ll date you! but no Annihilators.”
“Well, since you put it that way… I’m in.” – Niko Bellic
That night, Niko took Faith out to a fancy restaurant, once inside, the waiter stared at them of their weird looks and clothing choices. Niko was wearing a cheap tux, while Faith remained in her running outfit.
“What are you looking at?” Niko asked the waiter in the ruddiest way imaginable.
“Nothing sir,” he answered scared, then tried to change the aggrasive atmosphere with a polite question: “would you like me to sit you.” The waiter kindly offered.
“I’ll rip your fucking heart out!” – Niko Bellic
It was too late, Niko was already aggresive.
“Sir, If you continue to talk to me like that, I’m afraid I will have to ask you to leave.”
“If you contenue to talk at all I will blow your head up.”
“Sir, please leave.” The waiter had had enough, and was starting to get angry
“for an annoying dick, you’re really an annoying dick.” – Niko Bellic
Niko Bellic along with his date were thrown out, and so Niko took Faith to a hotdog stand, and ordered for her a hotdog. He also bought a large green bottle of wine.
“So, what do you like?” Faith asked Niko.
“Life is complicated. I… I never thought I’d live like this.” – Niko Bellic
“Yeah, I hear ya,” she replied.
“When the war came, I did bad things, but after the war I thought nothing of doing bad things. I killed people, smuggled people, sold people.” – Niko Bellic
Faith started to get worried of being in the company of a maniac.
“After you walk into a village and you see 50 children, all sitting neatly in a row, against a church wall, each with their throats cut and their hands chopped off, you realize that the creature that could do this doesn’t have a soul.” – Niko Bellic
Faith started to think of an excuse to walk away from this lunatic. Niko saw the look on her face, and knew that he was loosing her.
“sorry,” Niko appoligized, “it seems I got a little, what you call it? brain damage?” Niko laughed slightly while contenuing to drink his wine bottle.
By the time the dinner was over, Niko was completely wasted.
“O shee,” Faith tried to excuse herself from his company, “look at the time, I better be going.”
“Don’t go, wait, I call us a car.” Niko raised his hailing a taxi, “Yellow car!” he shouted.
Once they arrived at Faith’s place, Niko couldn’t keep his wondering hands to himself and made a move on his date.
“I don’t think we should see each other anymore.” Faith snapped, mainly grossed by Niko’s existence.
“What? Why? we have many things in common, we both enjoy jumping from high places without thinking. We both get chased by cops all the time ..”
“.. Goodbye Niko.” Faith got out of the car, shutting the door behind her.
Niko opened the side window and shouted at her: “Scratch my fuckin’ balls, bitch!” – Niko Bellic
The next morning, Faith got out of her place through the bathroom window, and climbed up to the roof and jumped to the neighbor’s roof. Faith is not right in the head, but compared to Niko, she’s normal. As Faith leaped from one rooftop to another, she realized that Niko was stalking her in his Annihilator. She knew that he wasn’t going to let her go, so she went to the court to get a restraining order.
As days passed by, Niko continued stalking Faith in his annihilator.. but he did so from a distance of 100 yards.
“I’m sick of this shit!” – Niko Bellic
One night, Niko followed Faith into an ally and beats the crap out of her with a bat. “Can’t you see,” “he said as his face began to get covered by her blood, “we were meant to be together.”
“stop! this is the L.C.P.D., put down your weapon!” An officer threatened Niko as he held a handgun pointed at Niko’s head.
But Niko wasn’t the type of guy that would give up that easily. Instead, he just took out his phone and tried to spawn an Annihilator. Before he dialed any numbers, the cops shot him down.
Niko Bellic woke up in the hospital, seeing next to him Faith.
“Let’s start over, I’m Niko bellic, Faith Conners .. Will you marry me 🙂 ?”

The night before the incident, I was entering my house at 8:30, before I entered i saw a shadow of a big cat on my head’s shadow. I got freaked out, I looked behind and realized that there was a cat on the fence!! At that time I heard a cat screaming (other than the one on the fence) I said “They’ll go away”.
The next day when I got out going to school i heard the same scream, but neglected it. when I came back from school I realized that there was a cat stuck somewhere!! Bone-Crusher was with me, he went searching for the cat, but no clue! he said “When I go further I here the sound from behind, but when I step back I hear the sound coming from the place where I was before!!” I thought it was stuck between the bushes or something! -Out of nowhere- My young brother came out noticing what we’ve noticed, Suddenly he said “The cat, it is in the pipe I can see its face” I was like “what a load of …” *crouched and concentrated* “WHAT!!!” , it was true it was inside the pipe.
I was shocked! “How could a cat get in this pipe?” was the question in my mind, after a while we noticed that it was a baby and was abandoned by her mother (the one that scared me the other night). At that moment we tried to get it out, but no luck. A person suggested to take a vacuum cleaner and suck it(the problem was that the cat’s face was in front, so it WILL get hurt). We were out of ideas, until my father came and gave us an helpful idea, this is pipe’s one hole, and it has two; so… we took a hose and put it in the other hole and started the water.
The cat moved a bit, but the idea failed because the water was getting out (not moving the cat, getting out from hole No.2). I thought of an anxious idea. The idea was to take the hose and insert it all the way from Hole No.2 to the cat, and then push it with the hose. The cat started to scream again till it got out.
aaaand the AAO TEAM HAVE RESCUED A CAT
But once it got out, another problem started WHERE SHOULD IT GO? it doesn’t know anything, but the pipe, so it tried to get into the pipe again, I said “No you won’t” and blocked the hole putting my shoe, I told my BRAVE younge brother to take it/move it away a bit, so he took it (using his hands -I’d never do that!!! never did, never will-) and moved it. The cat went into our small garden hiding under the bushes being scared. We left her and got in our house, but it was still SCREAMING!! so we got out some milk, water, and some of our food (which was rice and shrimp -in other words emrabian-) and gave it to it, it didn’t want to eat, tried to feed her by -a little bit of- force, but still! WHAT A STUBBORN CAT! So we/I left it alone. And went to lunch.
After eating, I returned to it, and realized it ate/drank some. Good but, what now, we don’t want to keep it, so I talked to my father, and LOL, he said “we’ll keep it out there until it grows up a bit, and then we kick her out“!!
… To days have passed (today), when I came from school I was searching for it between the bushes but, I couldn’t find it. I got in the house and asked, but they all don’t know where did it go! :: Major Sad-face:: -I liked it a bit- I went in the house into my room. Then realized that the mother was in our balcony/very small-yard relaxing, then she looked at me…
And then she ran away jumping over the wall. The good thing is that the mother is still here and alive, but WHERE IS THE BABY!!! I hope she knows where her baby is, cause otherwise, her baby is going to get hit by a car -the best thing some Kuwaitis do while driving a car-.
And by this, I have finished the whole story of the” rescue” and the other stuff (what other stuff?).
I only caught 2 photos
this is one of the sun set images if you would like to see more of my photos click on the link it will lead you to my Gallery here’s the link:
1. DOSBox, ways to download it:
a. Open the terminal and type
sudo apt-get install dosbox
b. Open Synaptic and download it (assuming you’re using ubuntu).
c. Go to its website and download it.
2. Windows 3.1, finding this was a problem, but I found a website that lets you download it for free, but you’ll have to make an account. Here’s the link: http://vetusware.com/download/Windows%203.1/?id=3391
1. Move the -downloaded- Windows 3.1 file/folder to a directory of your choice (Do not change its place after placing it, cause some steps depend on its path), extract it if it was zipped.
2. Open the directory that contains Windows 3.1’s files, you’ll find several folders named “Disk1”, “Disk2”, “Disk3”, …, “Disk7”.
3. Make a new folder named “CombinedFiles”.
4. Return to the directory that contains the disks. Now, move all the files in every disk folder to “CombinedFiles” folder.
5. Open “CombinedFiles” the folder that contains all the disks files, search for a file named “SETUP.EXE”, and open it with DOSBox. Once you’ve pressed it, DOSBox should start running, and then the installation begins.
6. Install it, it wont take time, and every time it asks you to put another disk press “Enter”. The installation should finish without any problems.
7. You’ll be asked whether if you’d to restart your computer or switch to MS-DOS, at that point switch to MS-DOS and quit DOSBox. So type in “exit” and press “Enter”. If that didn’t work, press “Ctrl + F9”. FYI If you didn’t exit DOSBox, Windows will not work in a good way and -probably- you wont be able to use your mouse.
8. Now go to “/home/YourName/” and make a new text file and name it “dosbox.conf”, copy and paste the following (don’t forget to change the path):
# Lines in this section will be run at startup. Type the following in on a new line:
mount C: /home/...path.../CombinedFiles/
9. Now you have two ways to run Windows 3.1:
a. Open DOSBox, type “
cd WINDOWS“, and then type “
win” and hit the “enter”.
b. Open any *.EXE from “CombinedFiles” with DOSBox, type “
cd WINDOWS“, and then type “
win” and hit the “enter“.
1. To kill DOSBox press “LeftCtrl + F9”
2. To get out your mouse from DOSBox prss “LeftCtrl + F10”
3. It boots in 3 seconds! (if not less)
Probably at one point in your life, you will wake up wanting to create a GUI fast! whether it’s a front-end for some software you are writing, or just for the heck of it (i said probably). this simple how-to will teach you how to do just that.
The objective of this article is to design a GUI as fast and as effortlessly as possible. if you want more flashy GUI similar to what you usually get when you start a program, I’d recommend glade.
because we want the least effort we will be using bash (yes a terminal) to deploy and manage our GUI. The key player is xmessage (see “man 1 xmessage” for more detail). this is a simple yet incredibly useful program that displays a simple GUI dialog on the screen. its simplest form is:
xmessage "SIG is cool"
try that in your terminal and hit enter. if you did, you will see the following window:
there are other futures that make xmessage more user friendly, and more usable. for instance, add the
-default okay switch to activate the okay button when you hit enter. also, you can load an entire text file in the text area by using
now, how about adding a few extra buttons? you can add more buttons by using the
-buttons switch. two buttons are added: “yes”, and “no”. “yes” is the default. the command:
xmessage "SIG is cool" -buttons "yes:10, no:11" -default yes
at this point you might be wondering how this can help make a robust GUI for your application. this is where bash really comes in. open a text editor and write the following:
#! /bin/bash xmessage -center "SIG is cool" -buttons "yes:10, no:11" -default yes answer=$? if [ $answer -eq 10 ]; then xmessage -center "You rock man" -default okay else xmessage -center ";_; ... i'm not crying ..." -default okay fi
this is a simple bash script that behaves in the following manner:
"SIG is cool" | +-> yes: "You rock man" | +-> no: ";_; ... i'm not crying ..."
first save your script as “sig.sh”. then add excution permissions:
cd /your/scripts/directory chmod +x sig.sh
once this has been done, simple start the script by issuing: (while still in the same directory)
or you can double click, and choose run. any way you do it you should get the following:
