Primrose Fae Chapter 8: Royals

Screenshot-1156

My mind was strangely clear when I woke up from my nap. What had I even been so upset about? I wracked my brain, but I couldn’t come up with any conclusions.

As I pulled myself out of bed, I realized this wasn’t my house. Or at least my current one.

Screenshot-1159

What the hell was I doing there? And why was I wearing such a girly dress? My hair wasn’t this long when I went to sleep, right? What the hell was going on?

A pang shot through my chest as I looked around my childhood bedroom. Memories of my parents and Basil pushed their way to the front of my mind. I remembered things I hadn’t thought of in years. My father’s cologne. My mothers sweet voice as she sang me and my brother to sleep.

I needed to find out what the hell was going on. There was obviously nothing going on in this room, so I decided to check the living room.

Screenshot-1162

When I entered the living room, I saw a figure sitting on the couch. From behind, it looked a lot like Chrissy, except her wings were white.

“Hello?” I asked the person. Her head shot up and she jumped off the couch.

“Prim! Thank goodness you’re awake. I’ve been waiting for you.”

“How did we get here? I thought this place was burned down.” I asked sadly, I was told the scientists burned Moonlight Falls to the ground.

“Parts of it. This house included, but this is just a dream. So anything is possible.” She smiled. She looked almost angelic, the only time I’d ever seen her wear makeup was her wedding.

Screenshot-1165

“This is a really strange dream. Why are you’re wings white, not blue.”

“I’m an angel.” She definitely looked the part.

“Wait does that mean…” Was that why I was so sad when I went to sleep?

“Don’t think about that right now. I have somethings I need to tell you.”

Screenshot-1166

“Good news or bad news?” I questioned and she giggled.

“Both. I’ll start with the good, because I just can’t keep it in anymore.” She squealed and hovered a little bit higher off the ground. “Prim, do you ever remember hearing stories about the royal family?”

“The royal family? The human one?” What a strange thing for her to bring up.

“No, no. The fairy one.”

“There was a fairy one?”

“Yes. It dates back all the way to the 1300s. The royal family ruled all of the fairies in the world for a long time.” She explained. “I always thought my mom was making this up, but I recently found out that she was telling the truth.”

“What ever happened to them?”

Screenshot-1171

“Well, they ruled all the way up until this century. The king and queen had one child, and they couldn’t conceive another one, so they didn’t have a spare. This child, a daughter, was sheltered her whole life. Her parents never let her out of the house, they couldn’t risk her getting hurt and causing their bloodline to go extinct. Well, when their daughter was a teenage girl, she was fed up with being shut out. One night when her parents were hosting a ball, she snuck downstairs and joined it.

“There, she met a handsome teenage boy. He was only a waiter for the party, but the girl was instantly attracted to him. They flirted all night, and she took him back to her room, and well, that night they conceived a child. Her parents were outraged and completely baffled, how could their daughter get pregnant when she’s always in her room? She eventually confessed, and her parents flipped. She was royalty, she shouldn’t be sleeping with the help!

“Well, her parents had two choices. Either they terminate the pregnancy and pretend it never happened, or they disown their daughter and try and find another doctor to help them try and conceive, even though they had tried multiple doctors. Their daughter refused to terminate her child, so they threw her out. She found the father, and they got married before the baby came. A few years later, the king and queen were killed in a plane crash. Since their daughter was no where to be found, their empire crashed. The fae all scattered around the globe and hid themselves from the humans.”

Screenshot-1167

“Okay, so what does this have to do with me?” I asked a moments later, I had waited for her to continue but she didn’t.

“That teenage girl’s name was Flora Fae.” Chrissy revealed.

“My mother? Does this mean… I’m that baby?” My head was spinning. I’m royalty? That can’t be, I’m nothing like a princess.

“You are. Haven’t you ever wondered why you’re last name is also the name of our species?” She giggled, as if me being a princess was the most obvious thing in the world.

Screenshot-1176

“I’ve never really thought about it.” I admitted. “Are you just fucking with me?”

“Of course not, have I ever lied to you before?” She cocked her head and gave me a questioning look.

“No. This is all just so hard to comprehend.” I smoothed my dress down and fiddled with my hair. “Is that why I’m dressed like this?”

“Yup, this is what’d you’d be wearing if your family hadn’t fallen. You’d be a princess.”

“I’d be a pretty crappy princess though.” We laughed, because I was the exact opposite of what a princess is supposed to be.

Screenshot-1181

“Prim, I’ve got to go. I don’t have time to tell you the bad thing, so you have to ask Jeremy. Ask him the truth about his past.” Chrissy explained quickly.

“W-wait Chrissy please don’t go.” My eyes started to water. For some reason I really didn’t want her to leave.

“Please, take care of my family for me.” She said softly, taking my hand in hers.

Screenshot-1183

“C’mon, let’s get you back to your man.” Chrissy said pulling my towards the door. Her voice sounded hollow and far away.

——

“Prim, Primrose please wake up.” A voice jolted me from my sleep.

“Jeremy, whats going on?” I asked groggily. Wasn’t I just talking to someone?

“You were shouting in your sleep, dear. Are you okay?” He asked softly, taking me in his arms. Suddenly, everything from the past day came crashing back. The memory of losing my best friend hit me hard, and I started to sob.

Screenshot-1209

“S-she was in my dream. We were in my old house, the one before we were discovered. She told me my family comes from royalty, and that I should’ve been a princess.” I choked out.

“What else happened?” Jeremy was an amazing listener, and if he thought my dream was stupid he sure didn’t tell me. It was one of the many things I love about him.

“She mentioned you.” I said, my voice much stronger than it was before.

“What did she say?”

Screenshot-1207

“She told me to ask you about your past.” As soon as the words left my lips his expression changed. His face contorted into a mixture of anger and sadness.

“Prim, are you sure you want to hear this, in the state that you’re in?”

“I need too.” my voice now a hoarse whisper.

Screenshot-1208

He sighed and leaned on his hand. “Primrose, you’ve got to promise me you won’t hate me for this, and that this won’t change anything between us. I love you so much Prim, and I really can’t lose you.”

“Jeremy you’re scaring me.”

“Just promise.”

“I promise.”

*Jeremy*

Screenshot-1185

My family lived in a small house on the outskirts of a town called Twinbrook. It’s a human town, filled with swamps. My mother hated it there, she always told my brother and I she deserves to be in a mansion with millions of dollars. She was a nasty woman, she did whatever she had to to get her hands on some money.

Screenshot-1188

Her and my brother, Alex, absolutely hated each other. He called her selfish, snobby and a gold digger. They always got into screaming matches, we lived in a tiny one roomed house so they were always near each other. We didn’t have a TV, hell I didn’t even know what a TV was. So I had to read to distract myself. 

My brother and I were really close. We had to sleep on the tiny two seat couch together, because our mother refused to share the large bed with us ‘brats.’ The tension in our house was so thick you could practically taste it, and it was not a healthy environment to grow up in.

Screenshot-1191

Our father was human. I’ve never told anyone that before. I’m ashamed of my parents. Humans and fairy should never mix, it’s disgusting. But my parents were ‘in love’. Really, my mom just wanted his money. He was a wealthy business man, but he never gave us shit. She thought if she made him happy enough, he’s marry her and divorce his wife. 

He never did though, and one day my mom got fed up. So she left. One day she just stormed out of the house, and she didn’t come back. 

Screenshot-1192

“Mirage, what the fuck?” our dad burst into our house the day after she left. He took a look around the room and his eyes stopped on my brother. “You, where the fuck is your mother?” 

“I don’t know, she left.” Alex responded.

Screenshot-1193

“I know she left, you little shit. The whole town knows. Everyone knows about your kind. How does that make you feel?” Our father ripped him off the couch and pinned him against the wall.

“D-dad please calm down.” Alex pleaded. But that just seemed to piss him off anymore.

“I won’t calm down you piece of shit. Do you know how hard I’ve tried to hide you? I’ve put fifteen years of work into this, and she ruined it all! This is all your fault, maybe if you weren’t such a little shit she wouldn’t have run off.”

Screenshot-1199

He pulled my brother to the ground and started to beat him. My father was so angry, he was screaming horrible words I had never heard before at my brother. Alex tried to get away, but he just wasn’t strong enough. 

Screenshot-1198

 Prim, I lied to you. I told you my brother was shot. But he wasn’t. My father killed him, while I watched from behind my mothers bed. 

Screenshot-1203

My father threw Alex over his shoulder like a rag doll and took him outside. I heard a large splash a minute later, then the sound of my dad’s car leaving. 

Screenshot-1206

We had a pond in our backyard, and a small dock that went almost to the other side. We didn’t go out there much, we didn’t want to be seen. But now it didn’t matter. I stood at the edge of the dock, my brothers body hidden behind tall cattails growing by the edge. 

He didn’t deserve to die like that. My brother was my only friend growing up. I didn’t have anyone after he died. So I left. I left Twinbrook, but I didn’t get very far. I was young, so I was discovered fairly quickly. And then of course I was taken to the lab just like everyone else. But it’s all my families fault. We’re the reason why supernaturals were discovered. Its all my fault.

When I finished my story, I opened my eyes. I hadn’t even realized they were closed. Prim’s eyes were brimming with tears once again.

“Babe, please don’t hate me.” I pleaded.

“I don’t hate you.” She whispered hoarsely. “I could never hate you.” Relief washed over me like a wave. I was so sure she was going to hate me.

“You’re not even a little bit mad?” She shook her head and pulled me towards her. We laid there on the bed until we fell asleep, even though it was one o’clock in the afternoon.

Primrose Fae Chapter 7: Eye for an Eye

Screenshot-1090 Dill grew up to be a handsome young man. He was into music like his father and I, so we bought him a bass for his birthday. I’ve never seen him so excited in his life, it warmed my heart. Screenshot-1087 Screenshot-1034 We also converted the basement into bedrooms for him and Missy, and they absolutely loved their rooms. Missy didn’t stop talking about it for a whole week! Their reactions made me ecstatic, I had been working on this in secret for months while they slept in the living room. Jeremy told me I didn’t have to do this for them, but I promised him I wanted too. Every child should have a bedroom. Screenshot-1095 Even though he was a teen now, Dill and Mistletoe were still the closest siblings I’ve ever seen. He would always play whatever game she wanted to play after school, even if it meant he had to stay up late working on homework. I couldn’t help but be reminded of Basil when I saw them. This experiment has been going on for 13 years now, (I know it doesn’t seem like it, Fairies age extremely slowly,) and I still thought about my family every day. Screenshot-1101 Speaking of families, Chrissy and Hero were starting their own! When I heard the news, I was thrilled. The baby would only be a few years younger than River, so they could be best friends, just like us. Hero was such an attentive husband during her pregnancy. He got her anything she needed, whenever she needed it. If she was craving a Hogan’s burrito at three am, he climbed out of bed and got her one. He gave her a massage whenever she asked, and he was always talking to her baby bump. It was utterly adorable.

——

*A few months later*

Screenshot-1109

Chrissy’s due date was three weeks away, but she was huge! Not that I’d say that out loud, she was terribly sensitive due to hormones. Once when Jeremy said he liked her hair, she cried for twenty minutes. Was I this moody with River? I don’t think so…

But anyway, today we were celebrating Missy’s teen birthday and River’s child birthday. It was hard to believe my little man was getting so big. I wanted him to stay little forever, but I knew that wasn’t possible.

Screenshot-1113

“It’s your birthday today, Bud.” I laughed as I sat on the floor with my angry son, who couldn’t figure out the block box.

“Was dat mommy?” He dropped the block and looked up at me.

“You’re getting older buddy. You can go to school soon!” I clapped, trying to make school sound fun.

“Was skoo mama?”

“Well, a bunch of kids your age go to this big building and learn a bunch of cool things! And you get to make friends. Yay!” I cheered, and he joined in.

“Yay mama!” I laughed and he got back to his block box. God, now what am I going to do during the day?

Screenshot-1115

Later that evening when the kids were back from school, we all gathered in the back yard for cake. Screenshot-1116Screenshot-1118 Screenshot-1122

Both kids blew out their candles at the same time. Missy was excited to become a teen, prom was coming up and she really wanted to go.

Screenshot-1124

When the sparkles cleared, Missy was taller, and even more gorgeous than before. I didn’t even get a glimpse of River, because he took off running inside. I called after him, but all he said was ‘video games’. Ugh, boys.

Screenshot-1128

Chrissy went inside, she said she wasn’t feeling well and didn’t want any cake. Hero took his inside, so it was only us. I got up to get a glass of milk, and looked over at my family sitting at the table. Sure, we weren’t an official family, but the kids called me Mom and I thought of them as my own. We were family in our hearts, where it mattered.

Oh god, I’m getting all mushy. I swear I wasn’t always like this, I think it’s because I’m getting older. But I try not to think about that much.

Screenshot-1131

“How are you better at this than I am?” Jeremy whined as all the boys played video games.

“Natural talent, I guess.” River stated, never taking his eyes off the screen. Dill laughed and Jeremy huffed. He was always the winner whenever he played with Dill or Hero, and wasn’t used to losing. “Sorry Dad, I must get it from you.”

I haven’t told River about his real father yet, I’ll tell him when he’s older. He doesn’t know that Dill and Missy aren’t his siblings, but they all treat each other as such. They’ll find out eventually, it just wasn’t the time yet.

Screenshot-1126Screenshot-1127

We completely re-did River’s room. We even expanded it a few feet, it was a little tight before. He screamed when he entered his room that night, and headed straight for the bed.

He climbed the latter and shouted “Mom, Dad, look how cool this bed is! It’s so high!” He squealed.

“Glad you like it, Bud. It’s bedtime though, so goodnight.” Jeremy blew him a kiss, and he blew us both one back.

“We love you River.” I said quietly. I dont think he heard me though, because he was already passed out.

Screenshot-1135

My little baby wasn’t so little anymore.

——-

*Hero*

I was worried about Chrissy. She’s been really dizzy lately, and she’s been getting a lot of headaches. Her speech was a little slurred at times too, but she assured me she was fine. I didn’t exactly believe her, but she’s a nurse so I guess I should. But still, I worried.

“Chrissy, where are you love?” I called out for her. I hadn’t seen her since cake. I climbed the stairs, but she wasn’t in either bedroom. I went back downstairs, maybe she was on the couch, and I just didn’t see her. But she wasn’t, so I check the last room in the house. The downstairs bathroom.

Screenshot-1132

Screenshot-1133

Panic rose in my throat when I entered the bathroom. Chrissy was sprawled on the ground, her face the palest I’ve ever seen it.

“Chrissy, Chrissy, are you ok?” I shouted as I approached her. She didn’t respond. No no no no no. I thought to myself. This can’t be happening. 

Screenshot-1134

“Chrissy baby, please wake up. This isn’t funny.” I took her into my arms. She was barely breathing, but she wasn’t responding.

From there on it got a bit blurry. I must’ve called 911, because an ambulance was there a few minutes later.

Screenshot-1136

The next thing I knew I was chasing paramedics into the hospital. It didn’t feel real. My mind was clouded and I felt like I was running in quicksand. She’s going to be okay, and so is the baby. I told myself, but not really believing it.

And I shouldn’t have.

——-

*Primrose*

Screenshot-1140

I buried my face into Jeremy’s shoulder. I sobbed loudly, tears pouring out of my eyes and onto his shirt.

“T-this can’t be real.” I choked.

Chrissy died last night. She had a blood clot in her brain, and no one knew. It was too late, she was almost gone by the time they got her to the hospital. They were able to save the baby, a tiny baby girl who Hero named Clover, because she was lucky to be alive.

It hurt. So, so bad. Chrissy was my rock. She was the person who helped me through the dark times, who made me laugh when all I wanted to do was cry. She was my fashion consultant, my song tester, my hug machine, and my soul sister. Chrissy was the first person I met here, and she was the closest thing I had to a sister.

Clover would never know her mother. She wouldn’t hear her first words, or see her first steps. She wouldn’t hug her on her first day of school. She wouldn’t help her get ready for prom, or help her through her first heartbreak. She wouldn’t see her get married.

Hero didn’t have his soulmate anymore. They wouldn’t have any more kids. They wouldn’t even celebrate their first wedding anniversary. They wouldn’t grow old together, and they wouldn’t play with their grandchildren together. It sucked.

I already missed her laugh, her jokes, and her tips. I missed her crazy stories from the emergency room. I even missed her mood swings.

I need my best friend. It can’t end like this. It just can’t.

Screenshot-1143

The last thing any of us wanted to do was attend a funeral. We had a small, private funeral, just the seven of us.

I’ve never seen Jeremy cry before. He’s always been a strong man, usually keeping his emotions private. But now, he was openly bawling at the grave site. Mistletoe was always very happy, but her face was drenched with tears. She looked up to Chrissy a lot, she thought of her like an older sister or a cool aunt. Missy was absolutely devastated when Hero came over in tears this morning.

Dill was so much like his father, he never showed much emotion. But while Jeremy was always happy and talking, Dill was always quiet. But he too was crying, something I only saw him do once, when he was a child and he scraped his knee while playing basketball with Hero in the backyard.

Hero held Clover tightly against his chest. He wasn’t crying. He was just staring. I was really worried about him. He hasn’t said a word since this morning. He’s just been holding Clover against him, never letting her leave his sight.

River was crying too, but I don’t think he really understood what was going on. He knew something sad had happened, but he didn’t understand what.

Screenshot-1144

“Misty, what’s going on? Why is everyone so sad?” River asked Missy, calling her by the nickname only he was allowed to use.

“Chrissy passed away last night, Bud.” She spoke softly.

“What does that mean? Where is she?” River was going through a questioning phase, he was asking questions about everything.

“It means she’s in heaven now.”

“When will she be back? I miss her.” River asked innocently. Hearing him say that broke my heart even more, if it were possible. Missy shot me a nervous glance, and a nodded slightly. He was gonna learn about death somehow, and unfortunately he had to learn about it so young.

“She’s not coming back, sweety. Once you go to heaven, you stay there forever.” She explained softly.

Screenshot-1147

“Why did she go there then, if she can’t come back? It’s not fair. I miss her.” He choked back a sob, and his sister pulled him into a hug.

“If she could, she’d be here with us, but she can’t. It’s not fair, I know Bud. But we’re all here for you, ok?” He nodded and sniffled.

“I think we should wrap it up, Clover is getting fussy.” Hero whispered hoarsely from next to me. Everyone nodded, and started to head out.

“How about we go to the pool, how does that sound?” Missy asked River. Missy was a blessing, I was so glad I didn’t have to explain that and that I didn’t have to distract him. I was too caught up in my own grief.

“Prim, we’re leaving now.” Jeremy whispered softly from beside me.

“I’m staying. Can you come back for me in an hour?”

“Of course love, you take you’re time. Dill and I will be back soon.” He kissed my cheek and took off with the rest of the gang. Screenshot-1149

“Chrissy, why? Why did this happen?” I sobbed after everyone was gone. “I need you. Hero needs you. Clover needs you. We all need you. Please come back” I knew my begging was useless, there was no reversing death. Not without black magic.

“I can’t believe you’re gone. It feels like just yesterday we moved in together. It feels like you just asked me if my boss was hot. Look where that got me, a broken heart but a beautiful son. I never thanked you for that. So I guess I’m doing that now. Thank you so much Chrissy. You gave me so much, I owe my entire life to you. Your’s was just starting out. I’m so sorry Chrissy. This shouldn’t have happened.” I sobbed. My hands dug into the grass, I was clinging to the earth as if I were going to fall off.

“I can’t live without you Chrissy. Who’s gonna cheer me up when I get sad about Vance? Who’s gonna remind me that he was a horrible man, who doesn’t deserve to be in his child’s life? We never even got to have a baby play-date. I never got to return the babysitting favor for you. I love you Chrissy, you’re the sister I never had.”

Screenshot-1151

I curled up on the grass, not caring about getting the dress dirty. “I’ll take care of you’re family Chrissy, I promise.” By now I was crying so hard my eyelashes were gluing together from the mascara.

Screenshot-1152

“Prim, Prim baby it’s time to go.” A voice pleaded behind my closed lids. I must’ve fallen asleep at the cemetery.

“I don’t want to leave her.” My voice was dry and hoarse and didn’t sound like me at all.

“I know babe, but Hero needs our help right now.” He persuaded.

Screenshot-1153

“Primrose, I know it hurts, but I promise you we can get through this, together.” Jeremy soothed after he finally pulled me off the ground.

“I can’t live without her.” I sobbed once again.

“It may seem like that, but you can get through this. I believe in you babe.”

“I don’t know.” That was all I could choke out. Even though it was summer, I was shivering as if I were in a snowstorm. Jeremy wrapped his arm around me and slowly guided me out of the cemetery, leaving my Chrissy behind.

All I could think about was Chrissy. My mind clung to the memories of her, they were all I had left and I desperately wanted to remember them. My mind was clouded, probably from the sleeping pills Jeremy gave me, but I fought through the cloud. I needed to remember every last detail of my best friend. Her smile. The way she laughed whenever I made a snarky comment. The way she never really knew what to do with her hair when it was down. How much she hated her name, even though it was such a gorgeous one. It was little things like that that I wanted to remember forever.

Primrose Fae Chapter 6: New Beginnings

Screenshot-971

River was such a happy baby. He only ever cried when he was hungry or needed a changing. He was always giggling about something. It was very easy to keep him occupied. Give him a toy and he could sit there and play with it for hours. It made my life so much easier.

Screenshot-977

I put him down in his room, and he immediately hid inside his toy box. I laughed to myself, he had been doing that a lot. I think he just liked being surrounded by his toys.

I was jolted out of my thoughts by the ringing of my cell phone. I walked out of River’s bedroom and answered my phone.

Screenshot-978

I pulled my phone out of my pants, and saw that it was Jeremy calling. I quickly pressed answer and put the phone against my ear.

Screenshot-979

“Hey Jeremy!” I answered cheerily.

“Hey Prim, how are you?” Jeremy’s voice sounded from the receiver.

“I’m great, how are you and the kids?”

“We’re doing ok, I found a bunk-bed for them to use for the time being.” I could hear the smile in his voice.

“That’s great!”

“Yea, hey Prim, there’s something I wanna ask.” Jeremy said slowly, as if he were unsure. Screenshot-983

“What is it? Do you need some help with the kids? I told you I’d help, that’s no problem.” I rambled.

“No, Prim I want to ask you out on a date.” He laughed nervously.

“A date? Really?” I squealed. I quickly regained my composure and cleared my throat. “That sounds nice.”

“Awesome, are you’re friends gonna be home tomorrow?”

“Yea, they can babysit the kids for us.”

“Sounds great, I’ll see you around noon.” We said our goodbyes and hung up. My heart fluttered, I had a date! And this guy wasn’t some secretive vampire, so as you would imagine I was extremely excited.

——-

*Jeremy*

Screenshot-985

“You guys are gonna behave, right?” I asked my two kids as we stood outside Primrose’s house.

“Of course, Daddy.” Missy’s sweet little voice promised beside me.

“Good, how about you, Dill?”

“Yea, I will.” He said softly. Dill was a bit shy, but he had enough friends in school so I wasn’t too worried about it.

Screenshot-987

The door flew open right after I knocked. Prim stood there, a large smile spread happily across her face. She ushered us inside the livingroom, where Chrissy and Hero sat on the couch and little River sat playing with a toy tank.

Prim pulled my close to her as soon as all three of us were inside. “Hey Jeremy.” She whispered as she dug her face into my shoulder.

“You ready to go?” I asked as she still clung to me. She nodded. “Alright kids, you be good for Chrissy and Hero, ok?”

“Okay Daddy, we’ll be good I promise!” Missy squealed and ran toward them on the couch. She jumped on Chrissy and went in for a hug. Chrissy laughed, Missy loved Chrissy a lot for some reason.

Screenshot-991

Prim was nice enough to let me borrow her car, since Becca had claimed ours. I really hoped Prim would like the date I was taking her on, she was unpredictable sometimes.

Screenshot-994

“This is really nice Jer.” Prim smiled between bites of her hamburger. I smiled at the nickname she used, everyone always called me Jeremy. It was cute.

“Thanks.” I laughed. I was really nervous, Prim was known as the grumpy one around the theater. She was kind of a hard ass, and it was a little intimidating. But maybe that’s what made her so hot.

Screenshot-995

“So Jer, how are you liking it here?” She questioned softly.

“It’s okay. I miss my family, but I think everyone does. This isn’t what I want my children growing up in. But I guess it’s a lot better than being poked and prodded in a lab.

She chewed silently then nodded. “Did you have any siblings?” Her voice was far away, as if she were somewhere else.

“One, I had an older brother. He died when we were raided. He fought against a human and was shot. He was my hero, and I really miss him. But I guess he’s probably happier wherever he is.” I ran my fingered through my hair and shot a glance at Prim. Her eyes were watering.

“I had a brother too. He was only two when the raid happened. He was deaf, and we hid underneath a bed. I’m so glad he didn’t have to hear our mother die. But I left him to go get help, and I never had the chance to go back for him. I don’t think I’ll ever know what happened to him.” She almost started to sob, but she took a deep breath and closed her eyes.

“Maybe… maybe he’s still alive.” I suggested quietly. “Maybe we could find him.”

“Are you sure? Could we get in trouble for that?” She looked up from her plate with hopeful eyes.

“I don’t really care, I can tell he’s really important to you. And you’re really important to me Prim, so I want to do anything I can to help.” I told her. She smiled so wide I thought her face would break in half!

“Jeremy, you have no idea how much that means to me.” She put her plate in the basket and crawled over to me. I wrapped my arms around her and pulled her towards me. Screenshot-998

“I wonder what he’d look like now. He’d be in his teens now.” She wondered aloud.

“Well if he’s related to you, I bet he’s handsome.” I smiled down at her.

“You’d love him. He was so smart even at two years old, I bet he’s a genius now! He never let his disability get the best of him. He was amazing. I really hope we can find him.” She sighed and cuddled closer.

“Me too.”

Screenshot-1001

She sat up and pulled herself on top of me. She draped her arms around my neck and looked me in the eye.

“You’re amazing, did you know that?” She stated, biting her lip.

“Only for the people I care about.” She nuzzled her face into my neck.

We continued talking for a while, talking about the kids, work, and our friends. It was nice up here, the club across the lake wasn’t open just yet, so the only sounds were Prim’s voice and the rushing waterfall behind us.

But as soon as the sun started to set, I heard the music from the Freaky Falls start to play. I started to stand, with Primrose still wrapped around me.

“C’mon, Let’s go party. I think we could use it.” I laughed as I set her onto the ground.

“I can’t go in a club in this!” She cried, but in a joking manner.

“That’s why I had Chrissy pack us some clothes in the trunk.” She shook her head and laughed.

Screenshot-1003

That’s when I pulled her in for a kiss. I felt her gasp against my face, I guess I caught her off guard. She didn’t pull away, which was a good sign. Our tongues danced against each other, pulling my mind away from anything but her.

She soon broke this kiss and looked up at me. I mischievous smile played across her face. “Yea, we do need to let loose a little.” She then took off running toward the car. I laughed to myself as I chased after her. Primrose was a little fireball. It was hot.

Screenshot-1009Screenshot-1010

We didn’t stay in the club very long, it was getting late and we needed to go home soon. But that doesn’t mean we didn’t have a good time. We had a great time. Or at least I did, but I’m pretty sure Prim did too.

Screenshot-1013

When I brought her home, I spun her around and dipped her down into a kiss. She giggled against my lips as I pulled her back up.

“I had a lot of fun tonight, Jeremy.” she stuttered.

“Me too. We should do this again.”

“I’ll call you.” I bit my lip and smiled. “Well, the kids are probably at Chrissy’s, so I’ll see you soon.” She squeezed my hands lightly and headed for her house.

Screenshot-1012

Chrissy’s door was already open, so I just pushed it open. Chrissy, Dill and Missy were all watching something on the TV, and as soon as I walked in Missy jumped up.

“Daddy, we had so much fun today!” She jumped up and down.

“Really Princess, what did you guys do?”

Screenshot-988

Screenshot-990

“Well me, Chrissy and River watched a movie at Prim’s house. It was so cool! And Dill was outside with Hero playing basket ball! And then the TV at Prim’s house broke, so all of us went outside to play.” Missy told me, she was bursting with excitement.

Screenshot-1002

“It was so cool, Daddy. They have a huge playhouse, a spring rider and a slide! Can we come play here more often?” She asked, pulling a puppy dog face.

“Of course Princess, as long as it’s okay with Prim.” I laughed and rustled her hair.

“We played outside until River got tired, so Hero took him up to bed and Chrissy let us watch some shows on her TV. And she made us hotdogs! Chrissy is so cool, Daddy.” She was talking so fast it was almost hard to hear her. Chrissy was watching us with a huge smile plastered across her face, and Dill was still focused on the show.

“Wow, sounds like a blast!” I patted her on the shoulder then turned my attention to Chrissy.

“Thank you so much for watching them.” I grinned.

“It’s no problem, I had tons of fun.” We said our goodbyes, I collected the kids and we headed for home. Despite her hyperness, Missy fell asleep in the taxi.

*Primrose*

I think it’s safe to say that tonight was the best date I’ve ever been on. When I was with Vance, we couldn’t go out in public as a couple. I always thought it was because he was my boss, but now I realize it’s because I wasn’t the only person he was with.

When I got home, River was asleep, but he woke up as soon as I entered his room.

“Mama?” His tiny voice called from his crib.

“I’m right here baby.” I cooed as I approached the crib.

“I scared” He looked up at me, tears brimming his eyes.

“It’s okay baby, Mama’s here.” I lifted him out of his crib and carried him into my room.

Screenshot-1014

I laid him down on the bed as I quietly put my pajamas on. He was already fast asleep by the time I crawled into bed with him. His quiet breathing soothed me, and soon I was fast asleep too.

Screenshot-1016

I put the pictures Jeremy and I took in the photo booth above my dresser, next to mine and Chrissy’s. It replaced the one I took with Vance, so I was happy for multiple reasons. I still gotta hide the one on the dresser though… Maybe another day.

——-

*A few months later*

Screenshot-1018

“Wait for us, Jeremy!” I called after my boyfriend, who was already ankle deep in the ocean. I laughed as he waved us off. I quickened my pace, River giggling loudly at my side.

I set river down in the sand as I removed our clothes, I had a swimsuit under mine and he was already wearing his trunks.

Screenshot-1019

Jeremy was shoulder deep by the time River and I approached the water. I dunked River in a few times, each time he squealed with delight. Screenshot-1021

Jeremy, River and I did this almost every weekday. He and his kids had moved in with me, it was a little cramped but we could manage. We came to the beach so I could have my construction team come in and work on the basement.

Screenshot-1027

“Prim what time is it?” Jeremy yelled from behind his snorkeling gear.

“I don”t know, maybe four thirty?” He jumped out of the water and started heading to shore, pulling his gear off in the process.

“I’m gonna be late, I’ll see you later.” he kissed me on the cheek and headed to the car.

Screenshot-1030

I laid my towel down in the sand and gave River a toy to keep him occupied. Chrissy and Hero usually watched Missy and Dill after school.

Screenshot-1045

Sometimes after they did their homework, she’d take them to the pool. They just added some cool new things, and the kids absolutely adored it.

*That weekend*

Screenshot-1048Screenshot-1052

Chrissy’s bachelorette party was fun. In all honesty I got so drunk I don’t even remember most of it. I just remember that Chrissy’s sister Anna was there, she was broken up from her girlfriend for the billionth time, so her and I got drunk together to have a little fun.

The next day was the wedding, and thankfully I wasn’t too hungover so I could enjoy it.

Screenshot-1057

They had a small ceremony on the beach by our house. They didn’t want a huge fuss, so they only invited close friends.

Screenshot-1058 Screenshot-1059

Chrissy looked gorgeous in her wedding dress. It’s a fairy tradition to have your wedding clothes match the color of your future spouse, and Chrissy’s was no exception.

Screenshot-1065Screenshot-1068

Their vows were short and sweet, and soon they were Mr. and Mrs. Lyn. I promised myself I wouldn’t cry, but seeing my friend so happy made me tear up just a bit.

Screenshot-1070

There wasn’t much of a reception, just some cake and a small buffet. Hero wasn’t really one for parties so Chrissy kept it small.

Screenshot-1075

The wedding cake was amazing, I think Chrissy and I must’ve had four pieces!

Jeremy had already left with the kids, It was Dill’s birthday and they were going to celebrate quietly at home.

Screenshot-1078

When I left the reception, Hero and Chrissy were slow dancing in the moonlight. It was such a cute sight to see, I was so excited for my best friend.

Screenshot-1085

I better be getting a niece or nephew sometime soon.

A/N: Hey guys, thanks for reading! Sorry this chapter skips around a bit, it’s just a filler. Also, sorry for the lack of bachelorette/wedding pictures, my game was giving me lots of trouble and it was hard to take good pictures.

Primrose Fae Chapter 5: New Arivals

Screenshot-812

Being pregnant wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t enjoyable either.  I was tired, I was fat and I was eating way too much. I couldn’t wear my regular clothes anymore, and had to settle for the maternity clothes Chrissy had bought me. Unfortunately they don’t make punk rock maternity clothes so I was stuck looking like a fat old women. There was also the fact that this child could end up a vampire, something I have little experience with.

But there were upsides to being pregnant. I didn’t have to work anymore, the band didn’t want me to put any strain on the baby. I could just sit at home and watch movies with Chrissy.

Screenshot-819

I spent a lot of my time reading too. I was never an avid reader, the only books provided to me as a teen were in Simlish, and I wasn’t fluent in it enough to read it. But now that I was, I read whenever I could. The book I was currently reading was a pregnancy book. I had to skip the first chapter though, because that was about getting pregnant. Do people really need a book for that kind of thing? I sure didn’t.

Besides that, I did learn a lot about what I was going through and what was to come. It didn’t look pretty at all. I wasn’t exactly excited to give birth. Thank god I would have the best midwife in the business.

Screenshot-831

“She says she enjoys kicking your bladder!” Chrissy laughed as she listened to my bump.

“How do you know it’s a she?” I questioned. Secretly I was hoping for a boy. I had no idea how to deal with teenage girls, and I certainly didn’t want to do it alone.

“I can feel it.” she giggled.

“I hope its a boy, I’m tired of being out numbered!” Hero joked. Now that Vance was gone, Hero was the only guy in our group. Well, besides the cat.

Screenshot-830

“Well are you gonna find out?” she rested her hand on my stomach.

“I’d rather keep it a surprise.” I admitted. I didn’t want to find out, because things like that should be shared between the parents.

“Then how are we going to decorate the nursery?” I laughed, of course Chrissy would worry about decorations.

“It’s gonna be blue of course. It’s a pretty neutral color.”

“But what if its a girl?” she exclaimed.

“A baby isn’t gonna care about the color of the room.” Hero and I laughed and Chrissy rolled her eyes.

Screenshot-835

“Well Hun, we’ve got a date to go on, call me if you need me.” she hugged me and took Hero’s hand. “We’ll be back later!”

——-

*Chrissy*

Screenshot-848

“Hero, what are we doing here?” I asked. He had taken me to the beach down the mountain from our house.

“The beach is pretty at night.” He smiled.

“But it’s cold.” I whined. He laughed.

Screenshot-849

“Hold on, we’ll leave soon I promise.” He stated as he lowered himself to the ground. Confused, I cocked my head and gave him a look.

Screenshot-851

He got down on one knee and pulled a small black box out of his pocket. I covered my mouth in shock as he opened it to reveal a beautiful ruby engagement ring.

“Chrysanthemum Lyn, we met under the strangest circumstances. I accidentally put a nail through my foot, and you were my nurse. I thought that was the dumbest thing I’ve ever done, but I’m so glad I did it. If I hadn’t I wouldn’t have met you.” I laughed, that was the strangest thing that’s happened for as long as I’ve been working there.

Screenshot-852

“You’re the only reason I haven’t tried to leave this horrible experiment. You’ve changed my life, Chrissy. And I don’t want you to ever leave it. Marry me, my little flower.”

I started to cry. That speech my the most beautiful thing anyone as ever said to me.I was speechless. I croaked out a soft “Yes” and he slid the ring onto my finger.

Screenshot-858

He jumped up and kissed me. “I can’t wait to spend the rest of our lives together.” He breathed against my lips. I smiled at him.

“Me too.”

“Now, lets go get something to eat. How’s Hogans?” He laced his fingers into mine.

“Sounds great.” We walked off the beach hand in hand. This was the single best night of my life.

——-

*Primrose*

Screenshot-871

As I started to get bigger, leaving the house was starting to get harder. Chrissy was helping me out a lot. She was helping me with my groceries, my cooking, and she even hired me a maid! She was my personal guardian angel.

Screenshot-844

Even though Chrissy didn’t agree with my color choices, she helped me turn the spare room into a little nursery for the baby.

Screenshot-862

She had even taken to sleeping on the floor. I told her we could share the bed, but she insisted I had the bed to myself. I was glad she was staying with me, I was terrified of going into labor alone.

Screenshot-875

“Have you thought of any names yet?” Chrissy asked me for the billionth time this week.

“I’m thinking.”  I mumbled. I had been putting it off for quite some time now. A child’s name should be picked by both parents, but unfortunately that wasn’t going to happen.

“Yea, sure. I figured you weren’t gonna come up with anything on your own, so I made a list of a few.” she explained as she pulled a crumpled list out of her pocket. She started to read them off. “Okay so for a girl I’ve got; Lily, Brooke, Rosemary, Jasmine, and Daisy.”

“What about for a boy?”

“For boys I’ve got; Oak, Timber, Thorn, and Pine.” She smiled.

“Okay um I like Brooke for a girl” I thought out loud. “But I’m positive it’s a boy. And no offense, but none of those names really appeal to me.”

“Well then, how about River?” she suggested.

Screenshot-878

“That sound’s like something my mom would’ve come up with.” I smiled. “River it is.”

“That’s so cute, River and Brooke. They match!” We laughed, it was a cute naming theme. “Hopefully you have twins.” she giggled.

“Oh god.” I faked horror, and we laughed. I think I might’ve laughed too hard, because a horrible pain ripped through my stomach. “Oh god” I repeated, this time my voice was strained.

“Prim, what’s wrong?” Chrissy panicked.

Screenshot-879

“Oh boy.” I got off the couch. “This kiddo wants out.” I groaned. Chrissy ran off to get changed and get the hospital bag. She was back a few minutes later, and we headed out the door.

Screenshot-883

I was between contractions when we got there, so I could walk myself into the hospital. Chrissy ran ahead of me to get a wheelchair, because I knew I would need it soon.

My labor was short, but it was extremely painful.

Screenshot-887

Seven hours later, we were leaving the hospital with my new baby boy. River Fae was a whopping nine pounds even. You might be wondering why we’re leaving the hospital so early after labor, but supernatural creatures heal a lot faster than humans do. I was terrified when I realized he wasn’t sparkling. My son was a vampire.

Screenshot-892

We arrived at the house a little while later. Chrissy decided to give me some privacy, to get to know my son.

“Hey little guy,” I cooed, “This is our home. It’s just you and me baby. But that’s ok, I promise Mommy will love you enough for two parents.” He gurgled against my shoulder and I smiled. I silently thanked Vance, even though he broke my heart, he gave me the best thing anyone could give someone.

Screenshot-893

I wasn’t that scared anymore, maybe a vampire son wouldn’t be that much different from a fairy one.

Welcome to the world, my little man.

——-

Screenshot-899

Having a child didn’t ruin my life like I thought it would. Actually, it was the exact opposite. River was the greatest thing that’s ever happened to me. His tiny giggles could cheer me up after a terrible day at work. The way his eyes lit up every time he saw me was the reason I woke up every morning.

Sure, it was hard being a single parent, but Vance sent child support money every once in a while. He wasn’t happy about it, but I didn’t care. Even though we didn’t have his father, River and I weren’t alone. We had Chrissy and Hero.

Screenshot-900

Chrissy was in love with little River. Whenever she came over she ran up to the nursery to play with him. Some mornings she didn’t even change out of her pajamas!

Today I decided to take River to the park. I thought it would be good for him to get out for a bit, and Sunset Valley has the cutest little family park.

Screenshot-903

We had to take a taxi into town. Hero had the car today and I couldn’t take River on the motorcycle, so a taxi it was. The man was grumpy and didn’t like helping me put the stroller in the back, and got annoyed when River started crying. Someone’s bitter.

When we got there, I heard the squeals of a little girl. I looked over, and saw a friend of mine from work playing with a little girl on a spring rider.

Screenshot-905

“Hey Jeremy, funny seeing you here.” I greeted my co-worker. He looked up and smiled.

“Hey Prim, how are you? I haven’t seen you around much.”

“I’m working part-time.” I nodded to River, “The little one takes up a lot of time.” We laughed.

“I know how you feel, I’ve got two.”

“You’re married?” I asked, Jeremy and I have been working together for a long time, and he never mentioned anything about a family.

Screenshot-907Screenshot-908

He lifted the little girl off the spring rider and faced me. “No, it’s just me and the kids.” he said sadly.

“I’m a single parent too.” I sympathized. He smiled softly.

“This is Mistletoe, but everyone calls her Missy.” He gestured to the small girl in his arms.

“Hi Missy.” I waved.

“Hi” she smiled a large toothless smile. She was adorable!

“This little guy is River.” I told them. Jeremy smiled.

“I’m gonna let Missy play in the sandbox, want to sit with me?” He asked.

“I’d love to.”

Screenshot-910

I put River in one of the provided baby swings, Jeremy put Missy in the sandbox and we took seat on the bench.

“So, what’s your story?” Jeremy blurted out. I knew he wasn’t one for small talk, and it was something I wanted to talk about.

Screenshot-913

So I told him everything. It took me while, but he listened intently and commented when it was appropriate. He was an amazing listener.

Screenshot-916

“So,” I asked after I finished talking “That’s my story, how about you?”

His expression changed into one of sadness. “I don’t really want to talk about Becca, so I’ll start after the break up.”

“That’s fine”

Screenshot-867

“Becca and I never got married. We always said we didn’t need to. So I guess that made things easier, we didn’t need to get a divorce when she kicked us out. We got into a fight, she thought a music career was silly, and that I wouldn’t go anywhere with it. I told her she was wrong, and she didn’t like to be wrong. She threw me, Mistletoe and our son Dill out of the house that night. We had no place to go, so we crashed in a friend of mine’s basement.

Screenshot-884

I had to teach both of the kids their life skills alone. The basement is small, there’s one tiny bedroom and a mini kitchen. I slept on the couch and the kids had cribs in the bedroom. 

Screenshot-894

On Dill’s birthday, we didn’t have the money for a party, let alone a cake. He didn’t really notice, he was just happy to be old enough to go to school.

Screenshot-897

Even without a cake, Dill grew up extremely handsome and happy, he definitely takes after me in the looks department.

Screenshot-925

Dill’s a great sport about everything. He doesn’t mind sharing a room with Missy. He’s never complained when she wakes up crying. 

Screenshot-931Screenshot-932

Dill and Missy are the best of friends. They only have each other, so Dill is very protective of her. 

“It’s pretty hard living in a basement, but we get by. I hope I have enough saved up for a place before Dill is a teen, I know he’s gonna want his own room soon.”

Screenshot-919

When he finished, he looked over at Missy giggling in the sand. He was living in a basement with two small children? That’s so horrible.

“Well, that women made a terrible mistake. She’s missing out on an amazing man, and two amazing kids.” I rested my hand on his arm.

“Thanks Prim. This was nice, we should hang out more.” He turned to me and smiled a goofy lopsided grin.

Screenshot-920

“We definitely should, I had a lot of fun today.” we got off the bench, “River is probably getting hungry, we should be getting home soon.”

“Yea, Dill is probably back from school, so we’re gonna go too.” He looked over at his daughter again, who had buried her legs in the sand. “Her birthday is this Wednesday. I’ve got some money for a cake, and I was wondering if you and River would like to come.” He asked nervously.

“What a coincidence, River’s birthday is that day too. Mind if I bring a cake for him, and we can celebrate together?” I laughed, what a small world.

“Of course, you can bring some friends then too if you want.”

“Alright, I will” I smiled.

Screenshot-921

I pulled him into a hug. “Call me if you ever need anything, okay Jeremy?” I whispered.

“I wouldn’t want to impose on you.”

“Don’t do it for yourself then, do it for the kids.”

“I’ll see you Wednesday, Prim.” He smiled widely. “Thank you for listening.”

“You too, have a nice evening.” We let go and collected our children. I waved goodbye to him and Missy, both of them waved back. I smiled to myself.

——-

*Wednesday*

Screenshot-929

“You better not get too sweaty, we’ve got a party to go to!” I yelled at Hero over my newspaper.

“Yea, yea.” he called back breathlessly. I laughed, but abruptly stopped when I noticed the picture in the newspaper.

Screenshot-827...

‘Couple Married in City Hall’

I quickly folded the newspaper and threw it to the side. I wasn’t going to let anything ruin this day. Not even them.

*A few hours later*

Screenshot-936

I was the first to arrive at the park. I was worried the party would be cut short, the weather channel said there was a chance of hail today. I didn’t want the kids out in that. I snuggled River close to me. I wasn’t sure if I was ready for him to get older.

Screenshot-937

“Hey Prim!” Jeremy called from behind me.

Screenshot-938

“Thanks for coming out Prim, This is gonna be fun, huh?” He laughed and adjusted the toddler on his hip.

“No problem. My friends are gonna be here with the cake soon.”

Screenshot-939

As if on cue, Chrissy jumped out of the car and ran into the park. “Prim, we’re here!” She squealed and ran at me like she hadn’t seen me in weeks. Jeremy laughed.

“I’m guessing those are you’re friends?”

“Nice one, Sherlock.” I playfully nudged him on the shoulder that didn’t have a toddler leaning against it. We laughed and headed for my friends. “Hey guys, I think we should do cake now, there’s a chance of hail and I don’t want the kids out in that.”

“Sure, I’ll go get the cake.” Hero offered. He kissed Chrissy on the cheek and went back to the car.

Screenshot-940

We got the cakes set up, and brought the kids up to them.

Screenshot-942

Missy went first, blowing out her candles after her dad showed her what to do.

Screenshot-943

River was too young to blow them out alone so I blew them out for him. We put the kids on the ground and waited for them to transition.

Screenshot-944

Screenshot-945

Screenshot-946

When the sparkles faded, River sat on the ground. He had his father’s hair, but I’m not too sure where those eyes came from. But regardless, my son was one handsome little guy!

Mistletoe became a beautiful little girl, but I couldn’t get a good look because it started to hail almost immediately after they transitioned.

Screenshot-947

“Daddy, let’s go home!” Missy cried.

“Alright sweetly, sorry we had to cut you’re birthday so short.” He apologized to his daughter.

“It’s okay Daddy.” She smiled. “Bye everyone!” She waved and ran off to the car.

“Bye guys, thanks for coming! Sorry it was so short.” Jeremy said to all of us then chased off his newly hyperactive daughter.

I lifted River off the ground and turned to Chrissy and Hero. “I think we’re gonna be seeing a lot more of them.” I grinned wider than the Cheshire cat.

As we headed for the car, Chrissy wrapped her arm around my shoulder.

“I really like this one Prim. He’s a keeper.”

Primrose Fae Chapter 4: Shattered

*Warning- Swearing and Violence. Don’t read if you cant handle that. Thank you. Screenshot-745 It’s almost been a year since the experiment started. Chrissy, Hero, Vance and I had finally found a house. Or rather, two houses. They were right next to each other and their backyards connected, so we would never be too far from each other. We were moving in today. We bought all new furniture for the place, so we were leaving most of the other stuff here. I stood in the empty bedroom with a small smile. I was excited for this new house, Vance and I would finally get our own bedroom! But I was gonna miss having my best friend in the same room every night. “Prim, are you coming?” Vance called from the living room. “Yea I’ll be right out.” I shouted back. I took one last look around the room and headed out the door. Screenshot-746 We stood outside and waiting for the moving truck Hero’s friend was bringing by. “Are you excited, Love?” Vance wrapped his arms around my waist and whispered in my ear.

“Extremely.” I smiled and leaned back into him. “Now we’ll be able to woohoo any time of day.” He whispered seductively in my ear. We laughed, because we would always have to wait until Chrissy was out.

“Is that all you care about?” I joked. He shrugged, and we both laughed.

“Will you guys quit laughing?” Chrissy smiled at us. “You’re gonna wake the neighbors!”

“Who cares Chris, we’re moving anyway.” Vance stated. She pouted and Hero wrapped his arms around her waist.

“He does have a point, my little Flower.” Hero told her. We all laughed again, and then Hero’s friend pulled up with the truck.

——-

Screenshot-749

“Isn’t it beautiful?” I asked Vance as we got out of the truck.

“Not as beautiful as you, Primrose.” He whispered in my ear.

“Oh stop sucking up” I swatted him playfully. We stood there and soaked up the view of our new place. Our moment was interrupted a few seconds later by a loud squeal from behind us.

Screenshot-751

“Hero, put me down!” Chrissy yelled between giggles.

“Never my fair maiden! I shall carry you across the threshold!” Hero stated. Vance and I giggled as he carried her into the house. She was trying to get free, but she was laughing way too hard to break away.

When they disappeared into their house, Vance kissed me on the neck. “Let’s go break in that new bed.” He whispered.

Screenshot-755

We broke that bed in a few times that night.

Screenshot-752

My life was finally taking a turn for the better.

——-

Screenshot-757

A few weeks after we moved, I fell extremely ill. I was vomiting constantly, I was tired, and I was moody. Vance said I must’ve caught the flu from one of our co-workers. I wasn’t convinced though. The flu usually only lasts a week or so and I’ve been sick for two. I hadn’t told Chrissy yet, she’s a nurse and I didn’t want her to jump to conclusions.

One morning when I was particularly bad, Vance wasn’t even home. He hadn’t come in last night. That wasn’t unusual though, he worked late a lot and probably crashed with a friend. I was annoyed though, I was sick and I wanted my boyfriend here. But he wasn’t so I had to go to my next best option.

I slowly pulled myself off the bathroom floor and into the bedroom. I threw on the first clothes I got my hands on and headed next door.

Screenshot-759

“I’m getting tired of this, Chrissy. I’ve been sick for weeks, he knows that! He should be home with me, not out gallivanting with his band-mates.” I complained to my best friend five minutes later.

“Weeks? Are you ok Prim?” She looked concerned.

“I think it’s just the flu.”

“Have you been to the doctor yet?”

“No, I didn’t think I needed too. Its just the flu.”

Screenshot-760

“Have you missed your period?” She asked.

“Um I don’t think so.”

“Is there any possible way you could be pregnant?” she cocked her head.

“We’ve been really careful. I doubt it.” I shook my head, but stopped abruptly as I felt I was about to pass out. “Hey Chris, can I lay down, I’m feeling kinda dizzy.”

“Of course Hun. I’ll go get you you’re pajamas so you can be more comfortable.” she smiled.

Screenshot-763

She helped me onto the bed. “I’ll be right back, Prim.” she whispered softly. I grunted in response and immediately fell back asleep.

——-

*Chrissy*

I laid Prim down in my bed before getting dressed. She wasn’t feeling well, and I had a feeling she was expecting. How exciting! My bestie having a baby! How fun would it be to be an aunt? I put on a simple sweater dress and took my hair down. I walked the ten or so feet to her place, and the door was already open. Huh, that’s a little strange. Prim was usually really good about locking the door. Maybe she just forgot because she’s so sick. Screenshot-764 I pushed the door the rest of the way open and discovered the real reason the front door was open. Oh boy. Prim isn’t gonna like this one bit. Screenshot-765 There was Vance, with his lips all over another girl. They didn’t notice me, so I snuck upstairs to get Prim some clothes. That jerk. He brought another woman into the house he shares with his girlfriend, while she’s home! I’m glad I discovered this before Prim though, or I’d have to help hide a body, and I really didn’t want to do that. But of course, if Prim needed my help with that, I wouldn’t object.

——-

*Primrose*

Screenshot-767

I woke up to Chrissy hovering over me with a worried expression. I noticed I was in my pajamas, she must’ve changed me while I was asleep. I didn’t mind though.

“What’s wrong?” I asked. I immediately thought of Hero, he worked at the military base and we were both afraid of something horrible happening to him.

“Look, Prim, I saw something when I went to get you you’re clothes.” She whispered. Oh god. She probably found my stash of handcuffs.

“W-what did you see?” I asked nervously.

“Um, well, Vance was home. And um, oh god Prim I really don’t want to be the one to tell you this.” She choked, she sounded like she was about to cry.

“Tell me what…” I hesitated.

“He was on the couch with another woman. He didn’t see me. He doesn’t know I know. Oh god Prim I’m so sorry.”

“THAT ASSHOLE.” I screamed. I was furious. All those nights “working late” he was probably out with that whore! I thought he loved me, hell we got a fucking house together! “You’re joking right?” this all had to be some sick prank or something. Chrissy frowned and shook her head.

“I’m so sorry” She sobbed. “Prim, please don’t do anything stupid.”

“I already did.” I whispered.

“What do you mean?”

“Him.” I stated. I lightly pushed her out of the way and stormed out of her house and into mine.

Screenshot-770

“Vance Pinson, what the hell are you doing?” I snapped. He was sitting on OUR couch with another woman. I couldn’t even pretend they were just friends, because he had his arm draped lazily across her shoulders, like he did with me.

Screenshot-772

“Prim, where were you? I thought you were upstairs sleeping.” he asked calmly, as if nothing was wrong.

“I was at Chrissy’s. She was taking care of me, because YOU left me alone while I was sick.”

“Damn Prim, I can’t be there every single second!” He groaned and got off the couch. The Whore turned the t.v. on and started watching some dumb cartoon, as if she didn’t just cause a fight. That bitch.

Screenshot-774

“I don’t expect you to be! I’d just like it if you actually came home every night. But apparently you’ve got other things to do.” I gestured to the scantily clad girl on our couch.

“SHE happens to be my fiancée, bitch!” Vance shouted. Fiancée?

“Fiancée? Does this fiancée know that you’ve been living with me, and sleeping with me?” I screamed. I couldn’t believe I was the other woman. I had absolutely no idea he was engaged.

“She does actually. She doesn’t really care.” He laughed.

Screenshot-776

“I can’t believe this Vance! You are a fucking asshole. I should’ve gone with my gut that day at the fair. I knew you were bad news. You must’ve used your freaky vampire powers to make me fall in love with you!” I fumed. He laughed and the whore giggled.

“I would never, Primrose. You don’t mean that much to me. You’re just my plaything.” he laughed.

“Well fuck you Vance! I did so much for you and this is how you repay me?” I was on the verge of tears now, but I really didn’t want to cry in front of them. Suddenly, I remember what Chrissy said. “Vance.” I whispered this time. “I might be pregnant.”

Screenshot-780

He got really quiet, then started to growl. “You expect me to believe that? Why did you tell me now, not yesterday or the day before? I bet you’re making this up so I’ll chose you over Champagne. Well newsflash bitch, I’m ENGAGED to her. We’re getting married in a few months, and there is nothing you can do to change that.” he stormed.

“Why do you think I’ve been so sick? I just talked to Chrissy today, she’s the one who suggested it! How was I supposed to tell you yesterday if I just found out today?” I sassed him. He didn’t like that though.

“Well even if you aren’t telling the truth, I don’t want anything to do with the little brat.”

“Why did you do this, Vance?” My voice cracked, it sounded exactly how my heart felt.

“You’re good in bed.” he laughed.

“Is she not?” I pointed to Champagne, I guess that’s her name.

Screenshot-782

“Don’t insult my fiancée.” he growled.

“Well she obviously isn’t, if you have to go find someone else to do the deed with.” It wasn’t smart to aggravate two vampire, but I was too mad to think clearly.

Screenshot-784

“Bitch you don’t even know me!” She squeaked. Her voice reminded me of one of Atlantic’s squeaky toys.

“And I don’t want to. What kind of girl let’s her fiancé sleep with other women?” I judged.

“As long as he doesn’t keep it a secret from me, then I really don’t care. I sleep with other men too, but he doesn’t care either.” She explained. Damn, this was some kind of Sister Wives shit.

“That is so fucked up.” I laughed.

Screenshot-787

I’m Prim, I’m a stuck up little bitch! I actually believed a vampire could love me, a dumb little fairy.” Champagne mocked. I fumed. My vision blurred and I saw red. I was so angry I couldn’t think straight.

Screenshot-791

Which probably would explain why I jumped on her. Screenshot-792

Screenshot-795

We fought for a good few minutes before I threw her sorry ass to the ground.

“Get out of my house bitch. I don’t want to see you or you’re dumbass fiancé near my house ever again.” I spat on her, then turned to Vance. “I’ll be contacting you about child support.”

He glared at me but didn’t say anything. He helped a crying Champagne up off the floor, and pulled her toward the door.

Screenshot-798

They left hand in hand. I crumpled to the floor. The love of my life just walked out, with a fiancée none the less. I was probably pregnant with his child, and that child wouldn’t have a father. I was completely alone.

The next day, Chrissy went out and bought me a pregnancy test. I barely slept at all that night, between my nausea and my crying it was next to impossible. My mind had been racing like crazy, I just couldn’t stop thinking.

But now, my mind was the complete opposite. I was completely numb as we sat on the bathroom floor waiting for the test results. Three minutes felt like an eternity.

“Prim, it’s been three minutes. Do you want to check or do you want me to?” Chrissy spoke softly from her spot on the floor.Screenshot-801

“I guess I’ll check it.” I groaned. “I swear to god if that test is positive… Vance is gonna die.”

“I don’t think you could take down a vampire, Prim. Especially not while pregnant.”

“A girl can dream, can’t she?” we giggled, and I pulled myself off the floor. This small white stick I took a piss on would decide my fate. If it was negative, then I could try and move on and forget Vance ever existed. If it was positive… my life would change forever.

I walked up to the sink and looked down at the test. I little pink plus sign looked back up at me. My breath caught in my throat and I choked. I started to sob.

Screenshot-803

“It’s positive.” I managed to choke out. My voice was scratchy and barely audible, but I knew Chrissy heard me because she gasped behind me.

“Prim…” she started but I cut her off.

Screenshot-805

“Don’t you dare tell me its gonna be okay! Because you and I both know it’s not. I’m pregnant at twenty years old! I’m barely making enough money to support myself, how can I support a baby? What about my music career? It’s not okay. I’m not okay.” I yelled. I was crying, I could feel the remnants of yesterdays makeup slide down my face.

“Prim, Hero and I are like, ten feet away. We can help with baby supplies and baby sitting. You aren’t alone. We love you and we’re always gonna be here for you. Don’t you worry you’re pretty little head love, you’re music career won’t be stopped because of a little bundle of love. It’s just gonna be put on hold for a bit. This is a positive thing, I promise.” Chrissy pulled me into a hug.

Screenshot-807

“You aren’t mad? I just yelled at you.” I whispered in her ear.

“I can’t be mad at you Prim, I love you way too much. And besides, that was probably the hormones talking!” She laughed.

“Yea, probably.” She released me and smiled.

“I’m gonna go make you a doctors appointment. I can’t believe my bestie is having a baby! I’m gonna be an auntie!” She squealed and ran out of my bathroom.

I smiled to myself. Thank god for Chrissy. I honestly don’t think I could go through with this without her.

But I was still terrified of parenthood. Mine were only in my life for such a short time, I didn’t really get to know them. I was terrified of messing up. Well, I’ve already messed up. This baby isn’t going to have a father.

Right then, I promised myself I would be the best damn mother Sunset Valley. has ever seen.

Primrose Fae Chapter 3: Secrets All Around

Aside

Of course, the next day I woke up with a major hangover. I wanted to sleep for the rest of the day, but unfortunately it was my week do to laundry. And as usual, I had procrastinated and waited until the last possible day to do it. I somehow always managed to screw myself over. But I pulled myself out of bed anyway and headed out for the local laundromat.

Screenshot-574

Luckily, I had already gathered all our clothes into my motorcycle so I didn’t have to do it today. I was thankful we didn’t have too much laundry, I could get it done in one load and leave. Screenshot-576

“Fancy seeing you here.” a warm voice sounded from behind me.

“Hey Vance.” I smiled weakly at him as I finished putting the load in the wash.

“Sorry I had to go so fast last night, I made some plans with a friend and I totally forgot about them.” He smiled and rubbed his neck nervously.

“It’s fine.” I looked down at the machine, avoiding eye contact.

Screenshot-577

“So what did you and Chrissy do for the rest of the night?”

“We went to the club across the street from the bowling alley.” I laughed softy touched my head. “I think I might have over done it though, my head is killing me.”

Screenshot-580

“Y’know, when I was a rebellious teenager, I would always get hangovers. My friend taught me a trick that helps with the pain.” He took a step closer to me and smiled. I could see his fangs when he smiled like that. It was still a bit unsettling, but it didn’t freak me out as much anymore.

“Oh? Would you mind sharing this trick?”

Screenshot-582

“It’s not something you can tell, I’m gonna have to show you. Why don’t you stop by when you’re done here.” He winked and I blushed. Just a little.

“I’ll be there then.” Vance laughed and grabbed my hands.

“See you soon Ms. Fae.” He kissed my hand and left. That was a little… strange.I was glad we were the only two there, we were in the same band now and we were gaining quite a fanbase within the town. I didn’t want rumors, especially since he’s still my boss.

I shook my head and quietly laughed to myself when the buzzer rang from the washer.

——-

I arrived at Vance’s place a little later. The sun was already starting to set, had I really woken up that late? I guess so. I knocked on his door, and it swung open almost immediately.

“Hey V-” I started to say, but I was interrupted by a pair of lips smashing against mine.

Screenshot-583

After months of wondering whether or not he liked me, or if he was single,  here I was kissing him. I was shocked and didn’t kiss him back even though I wanted too. I felt like my body was frozen but my mind wasn’t.

Screenshot-585

He pulled away from me, an apologetic look in his eyes. “Prim I’m sorry I-“

“Don’t be sorry.” I grabbed his wrists and tugged him closer. He smirked and kissed me again. This time, I actually kissed him back.

Screenshot-586

Our lips never broke apart as we moved across the small room and flopped down on the couch. He pinned my arms above my head and caressed my side. We stayed like this for a while, making out and grinding against each other.

“Prim, my bed is a little roomy-er.” He said, breathless. I smiled at the vampire a top of me, and pushed him off.

“Then what are we waiting for?” We laughed, and he took me by the arm to his room.

Screenshot-588

The next thing I knew, our clothes were on the floor and we were holding each other on the bed.

And well, I bet you can guess what happened next.

——-

*A few months later*

Screenshot-682

After a few months, Vance and I were closer than ever. Sure, we weren’t official, and we had to keep it a secret, but it didn’t matter. We were happy. The only people who knew were Chrissy and Hero. Screenshot-686

Speaking of them, they were stronger than ever. Chrissy and I even discussed the four of us all getting a place together. But we couldn’t find anything big enough for us, but we were still keeping our eye out.

Needless to say, we were both a lot happier than we had been in years.

——-

Screenshot-689

More often than not, Vance and I found ourselves at Freaky Falls after work. It was a secluded club up in the mountains, so not many people wanted to make the drive up there. That meant that Vance and I virtually got the place to ourselves.

Screenshot-691

And well, being naked in a hot tub with a hot guy, always ended the way you would expect.

*Vance*

Prim and I laid on one of the new Murphy beds she and Chrissy got. Chrissy was staying the night at Hero’s, so Prim and I had the room to ourselves.

Screenshot-694

My arm was sprawled across her stomach. The only sounds in the room were the slight whistle of her nose when she exhaled, and the purring of Chrissy’s small kitten, Atlantic. I wanted to lay there for years. I wasn’t trying to be a stereotypical vampire, but watching her sleep was calming to me. She looked so peaceful while she slept. She wasn’t grumpy like she was at work. She wasn’t hyper like she was with our friends.

Screenshot-695

Eventually, I moved her head to the pillow. I didn’t want her to wake up with a sore neck.

I didn’t love Prim. She was my best friend, she was hot, and she really knew how to use her body. But I didn’t love her. I really hoped she didn’t love me either, I didn’t love her but that didn’t mean I wanted to hurt her. She had hinted that she wanted to move in together, but I always avoided the subject. Prim knew not to push me, I was thankful for that.

I kissed Prim lightly on her forehead and pulled myself off the bed. I started to collect my clothes off her floor, when my phone buzzed. I opened the text message from Champagne and read it.

‘hey babe, when u gonna b home?? luv u’

I quickly tapped back a response, telling her I was heading home right now.

After all, we had our wedding to plan.
