About me: Mason Rodrik Belinsky was birthed by Amelia Marie Cortez-Belinsky and Rodrik Randell Belinsky on November 19, 1993. Mason was the golden child growing up. He got everything he could ever want without even having to ask for it a million times just like any other bratty kid. His mother worked as an NA while his father delivered mail and drank heavily. This lifestyle resulted in a growing Mason to stay in his room most nights listening to the arguments through the walls. He heard the glass shattering and objects thudding against walls night after night. This became his lullaby until he was old enough to understand that this wasn't normal. He would wake up to find his mother cooking breakfast with bruises all over her arms and legs. She'd tell him she just fell outside while in the garden, but 10 year old Mason knew better. One night when Mason was 14 years old, he found his father with a knife to his mother's throat. So in turn, Mason snatched the knife and held it up to his father's throat while his father grinned and said "Do it.." Police showed up minutes later with Mason in handcuffs. After his questioning, they arrested his father and placed his mother in the hospital to get evaluated. They suggested Mason live with his grandparents, and that is what he did for the next 4 years. On the day of his 18th birthday, Mason moved from his grandparents' house and stayed with a good friend of his. While living with his grandparents, Mason hung out with a foul group of people. He's gotten his hands dirty more times than he could count in his entire life in those 4 years. Whatever drug you could name, he's probably tried it. Under his clothes were scar after scar from relationships he's gotten into while with this group. Those girls were nobody to mess around with. They also didn't take to being broken up very well. Mason needed to get out. He was 21. Was finally able to go to a bar and do what he's been doing since he was 15. Instead, he took up work there as a bartender. Some mates he made helped him to get clean so he only drinks occasionally and the needles were far from him. Heroin was never on his mind until he heard the news that his father was out of prison. He came searching for him and when word got around, Mason booked it to live on the streets. He's currently couch surfing until he can get himself stable again.
