Primrose Fae Chapter 14: Finale


Hero and I were spending the afternoon with Chrissy. Our kids were getting older, as were we, and we didn’t want her to think we forgot about her. So once a month we would stop by and just hang out for a few hours.

“Do you think she’s proud of me?” He wondered aloud.

“Of course, you’ve done a great job with Clover.” I fiddled with a blade of grass and stared up at the sky. I wondered the same thing, I really hoped my best friend was proud of me.

“I bet she’s proud of you too, Prim.” He said, as if he knew exactly what I was thinking. He probably did, he was great at reading people. I sighed. Even though my life didn’t turn out exactly how I wanted, it was a pretty damn good life if I do say so myself.

“What do you think she’d be doing right now, if she were here?” I asked. We talked about this a lot when we came here, envisioning her here helped us keep her memory fresh.

“Well, I bet she’d be hanging out with Clover. Probably doing their nails or something girly like that.” We laughed, when Clover was younger she would make him do her nails. I knew it made him sad, but he did it anyway. He was a really great father.

“Yea I bet. She’d probably have Poppy with her too. She’d probably have better luck with her, Her and I are too similar to get along. Chris always kept me grounded, and I bet she could’ve done the same with Poppy.”

“I think you’re doing a great job. So Poppy is a little out of control. She’ll get over it soon.” He chuckled.

“Yea easy for you to say, your daughter hasn’t caused any trouble in her life!”

“She will eventually. Every kid does something stupid at least once.” He didn’t sound worried at all. Unlike me, parenting didn’t scare him. I’m still afraid I’ll screw up. But not him, he’s pretty much fearless when it comes to kids.

“Y’know, out of all the guys here Chrissy could have picked, I’m so glad she chose you.” It was true, there were so many asshole guys here, believe me I’ve had my fair share of them, and few actually decent guys. Hero was one of those decent guys, and I was glad he married my best friend and raised her daughter.

“God damn Primrose, you’re making me cry.” We laughed and he threw grass at me. “But thanks. I still love her more and more everyday.”

“Me too.”

We laid in silence for a while, just watching the clouds and playing with the grass.

“Hey Prim, we should get going, Clover needs me to drive her to her creative writing class and I can’t be late again.” He broke the silence a little while later and pulled himself off the ground.

“Oh yea, of course.” I jumped up and dusted the grass off my dress.


Before I could walk away Hero wrapped his arm around my shoulder and pulled me to his side.

“I miss her.” He sighed.

“Me too.”

“I wonder if she missed us too.”

“I bet she does.” I smiled at him, and he kissed my temple softly.

“Thanks Prim, you’re the best friend Chrissy and I could’ve ever asked for.”


I hugged him as tight as I could. “C’mon, lets get Clover to her writing class.” I pulled back from the hug and noticed he was crying. I wiped the tears off of his face and smiled. We didn’t say anything else as we left the cemetery.



“Oh come on Poppy, can’t you do better than that?” We all sat in the living room, Jeremy and I on the floor, Poppy and River playing a round of video games. We didn’t have much family time these days, ever since the older two moved out and Poppy got into high school, they’ve all been pretty busy. But tonight was one of those rare nights where everyone was home.

“I’m letting you win, wimp.” She laughed and he glared at her. They didn’t get along often, and when they did, they were usually fake-arguing.

“This is nice, isn’t it?” Jeremy murmured in my ear. I turned around and straddled his legs.


“It is. I wish everyday was like this.”

“Me too. Y’know, we should invite Dill and Missy over soon. I really wanna meet Sha Sha.” Jeremy suggested. Dill had recently eloped with an older woman, and while we weren’t mad, we were just upset we didn’t get to go to the wedding.

“That’d be nice. Have you talked to Missy lately? What has she been up to?”

“Not sure. I asked if she was lonely now since Dill moved out, but she said she’s doing fine. I think she’s got someone living with her.” He smirked.

“Well hopefully we’ll have an actual wedding to go to soon, I’ve got a dress I’ve been dying to wear.” I ran my finger through his hair and smiled.


“Well first we gotta meet this guy, make sure he’s good enough for our daughter.” He grinned.

“Very true, just don’t hurt anyone. I don’t wanna cover up a murder.” We laughed, and he pulled us back and kissed me.


“Ew guys, get a room.” Poppy groaned.

“Hey, we own this house.” Jeremy warned jokingly. Poppy rolled her eyes and got back to her game, which she was clearly losing.

“Maybe we should take this upstairs.” I whispered seductively against his lips. He smirked, and pulled us both off the floor.


“We’ll be back.” Jeremy chuckled, grabbing my hand and pulling me towards the stairs.

“Ew guys I was joking!” Poppy yelled and threw the controller on the coffee table. We laughed and rushed up the stairs.


My life wasn’t perfect by any means. But it was mine, and I wouldn’t change it for the world, because I already had it.


And that’s a wrap!

Gen 1 is officially finished. I had so much fun working on this, and this is only the beginning! Thank you so much for reading so far. Don’t worry, this won’t be the last we see of Prim, Jeremy and Hero. They will definitely be making appearances in Gen 2! I’ll have the Gen 2 Prologue up as soon as I can, I am so excited for River’s story, it’s gonna be interesting…

Primrose Fae Chapter 13: Upsets and Downfalls


“River, what’s up?” I asked my teenage son as he nervously sat down next to me on the bed.

“M-mom, I um, discovered something, a few years ago. Dill and I snuck out, and we went to the cemetery.” He started, glancing at me nervously. I shut my laptop and raised an eyebrow at him. “Well, um have you seen those two graves next to Chrissy?”

I nodded. “I’ve seen them a few times, but not up close. Why?”

“Well we got up close, and well, the graves belong to Reed and Flora Fae.” Screenshot-1757

I stared at him for a second, trying to read his expression. Was this some kind of prank? How could he know my parents names? River wasn’t the kind to joke around like this. I rolled over on the bed and faced the wall.


“River, you’re being completely serious, right?” I asked.

“I am. And I um, talked to Flora.”

“What? She’s been dead longer than you’ve been alive. That’s impossible.” The last part was more to convince myself, I knew River wouldn’t make something like this up, but this sounded ridiculous.

“I know.”


I jumped up off the bed and grabbed my phone. If River wasn’t lying, I knew Basil and I had to go check.

“Mom what’re you doing?”

“Calling your uncle.” The phone rang a few times before he answered with a hushed hello. Basil was an aspiring author, and spent lots of time working in the library. “Basil, I need you to meet me at the cemetery in ten minutes.”

“What? Prim what’s up?”

“I’ll explain when you get there.” I hung up the phone and ran out the bedroom door.



“Prim, what’s going on?” Basil said breathlessly as he ran up behind me.

“It’s them.” I choked.

“What?” He looked down at the graves


“Flora Fae? Is that mom?” I nodded and his eyes widened. “Prim, how is this possible?”

“I-I don’t know. River told me he found this a few years ago.”

“Prim, Basil, what are you two doing here?” An eerie voice sounded from behind us.


“What’re you kids doing here?” A red, transparent figure repeated.

“Mom, dad? Is that you?” Basil cocked his head.

“It is. You can see us? Both of you?” We nodded, glancing at each other.

“We don’t have much time kids, we’ve got something we need to tell you.” My dad’s deep booming voice stated.

“Right, right. Okay, so I know you both know about my past, so I’m going to make this brief.” My mom started, but I stopped her.

“Wait, what do you mean we know about your past?”

“Don’t you remember dear, your friend came to you in a dream and told you everything.” I suddenly remember that dream I had the night after Chrissy passed. I had never given it much thought, I always assumed I was just grieving.

“Yea, but wasn’t that just a dream?”

“Just because its a dream doesn’t mean it’s not real.” My mother giggled.


My father stepped away from my mother, to let her explain whatever it was she was about to tell us.

“So you both know, I was next in line for the crown. Since the humans have taken control over you for now, I need one of you to continue the family line. Primrose, I know you already have children, so I want your family to continue our legacy. One day when we gain our control back from the humans, I want our family to take control again. You’ve already done your part, now all you need is to get one of your kids to pass it on.” She was talking so fast it made my brain buzz, but I understood what she was saying. She wasn’t asking a lot from me, but a lot from my son and his kids.

“Do you know how much longer they’re gonna be in power?” Basil inquired.

“No, we don’t. But we probably won’t gain our power back during your lifetime, or your children’s. It’s gonna take a long time, but we need to prepare them.”  She responded, and he nodded. “Do you understand Primrose? This is extremely important.”

“Yea, I do.”

“Good. But if you have any more questions, you can come here at night. Sometimes we’re out but sometimes we’re not. You can always just call our names and we’ll be out as soon as possible.” She smiled and fingered her transparent braid. “We best be going now, Honey.” She turned to my dad and he nodded.

“Wait!” I burst without realizing. The looked at me curiously. “H-how is Chrissy?” I needed to know. A small smile played against my father’s face.

“She’s doing great.” He told me, and then they vanished.


“Did that really just happen?” Basil asked. I didn’t answer him, I knew the question wasn’t directed at me.

“That was a little heavy.” I remarked, he nodded.

“You okay?”

“I don’t know.” I answered honestly.


“I can talk to them if you want.” Basil offered. I nodded, and pulled him toward me.

“I want River to pass it down to his kids, he’s more trustworthy.” I mumbled into his shoulder.

“Good choice.” We giggled, we both knew Poppy was a lot more trouble than her brother. “C’mon, let’s get you home. It’s getting cold.” He wrapped his arm around my shoulders and guided me out of the cemetery.



“Ugh, seriously Mom?” Poppy groaned as we approached the store. I felt bad about choosing River over her, so I decided to take her out for some mother-daughter bonding.

“What’s wrong with this place? I get all of my clothes here!”


“Yea, exactly.” She mumbled. I ignored her, and pulled her inside the building. I knew she wasn’t too thrilled to be here, one of her friends was having a pool party today. I would’ve let her go if it wasn’t about to rain.


“Oh Poppy, how do you like this shirt?” I asked, pulling a cute pink top off the rack.

“Gross mom. It’s way too conservative.” She snapped her gum and crossed her arms.

“It’s a t-shirt, Sweetheart.” She rolled her eyes. I knew she didn’t want to do this but her attitude was getting on my nerves. “Fine, I’ll go look in the tank top section.”


“This is so dumb.” She muttered under her breath as I was walking away. She must’ve thought I wouldn’t hear her.

“What was that Poppy?”


“No, I could’ve sworn that you said that this was dumb. Sorry I’m actually trying to spend time with you.” She swung around to face me.


“Forcing me to come with you to some shitty old store isn’t my idea of fun, Mom. I’d much rather be with my friends right now, but I have to spend my time with you! It sucks!” She screamed.

“I’m sorry I’m so terrible to be around, Poppy. I never see you anymore, you’re always out with your friends. I love you and I just wanted to spend some time with you.” It hurt, my own daughter not wanting to spend time with me.

“Liar. You don’t love me. If you loved me you would’ve picked me!”


“You can’t just pick my loser brother to do something so important, then expect me to forgive you with a dumb shopping trip? That’s not how it works, you can’t just buy my love!”

“Poppy, is that what you think I’m doing? I thought you liked shopping, I wasn’t trying to buy your love.”

“I do, but not in dumpy places like this. I bet RIVER likes places like this, he’s such a little kiss up. You love him so much more than you love me, you should’ve taken him today instead of me.”


“Is that what you really think? I don’t love him more. I love you both equally. But if it’s really that terrible spending time with me, I guess we can go home.”

“Mom… Don’t try and guilt trip me.” She warned.

“I’m not, I’m just disappointed. I never really got to know my mom, I would’ve loved to do something like this with her.”


“God Mom, you’re making me feel bad.”

“Well you have been pretty rude.”


“I’m sorry” Poppy said as she pulled me into a hug.

“I’m sorry too, why don’t we go find a shop that you like?” I offered.

“I’d like that.”




“I wish everyday could be like this.” Clover sighed and laid he head on my shoulder. My parents were on a date that night, Poppy was out with some friends, Uncle Basil was at the library, and her dad was at some meeting for work. We had both houses to ourselves.

“Me too.” I kissed her forehead. “But we’ve only got a few years until we can move out together.”

“I know, I just wish it were sooner.”

“These years will fly by, I promise.” I kissed the tip of her nose softly, making her giggle.


“I hope so. It’s killing me, not being able to kiss you whenever I want.”

“You can kiss me now.” I murmured. We made out for a while after, and I couldn’t help but feel kinda weird about it, I was legal and she wasn’t. But no one had to know.

“Hey Babe, its almost ten, my parents are gonna be home soon.” I told her a little while later. She jumped off my lap and headed for the door.

“Oh shit, I’ve got so much homework.”

“Do you need help with it?” I offered.

“No I’m good. Walk me out?” She asked, and I nodded, pulling the door open for her.


She jumped into my arms when we stepped out the door. I almost tumbled backward, but I caught myself before I could.

“Night River.” She purred.

“Night Clo.” I kissed her hard then set her down. “Get home safe.” I joked, and she giggled and ran off.



The next morning I went out for coffee with a high school friend. I came home a bit earlier than I anticipated, and discovered something I really didn’t want to see.


My baby sister had her lips all over some punk in the middle of our room.

“Poppy, what the hell is going on in here?” I raged. She was barely fourteen and already had a boy alone in our room.


They jumped away from each other, both of them looking extremely guilty.

“H-hi River. How was c-coffee?” Poppy stammered nervously.

“Don’t change the subject Poppy, what the hell was going on in here?”


“Why do you care? Aloe is my boyfriend, I can kiss him if i want to!” She launched at me, her face scrunched up in fury.

“No you can’t, you’re only fourteen! You shouldn’t be near boys.”

“I don’t care what you say, you’re not my father!”

“Yea? Well I bet he wouldn’t be too happy to hear about this.”Screenshot-1852

“Y-you’re gonna tell Daddy?”

“Of course I am! What else would I do?”

“You could keep it a secret!”

“I can’t keep this a secret, Poppy. This isn’t safe.”


“God River, why do you have to ruin everything for me?” She threw her hands in the air angrily.

“What have I ruined for you? Your chance of getting pregnant at fourteen?”

“Oh my god River, we were just kissing! You’re such a kill joy!”

“I don’t care!” I screamed back. I was glad we were so close with our neighbors, or they’d probably call the cops with all the screaming going on over here.

“You’re ruining my only chance at love!” Screenshot-1855

“You don’t know anything about love, Poppy. You’re way to young to even be thinking about it!”

“Oh yea? And what do you know about love, Mr. ‘I’ve never had a girlfriend'” She mocked. I narrowed my eyes. I wanted to scream that I did have a girlfriend, but I knew I couldn’t give us away like that.

“I know a lot more than you do!”

“I doubt it! Now leave us alone, we were having much more fun without you.”

“No.” I growled.


Suddenly, she swung at me, leaving a stinging feeling across my cheek.

“POPPY FAE, WHAT IS GOING ON IN HERE?” Our mother’s voice yelled from behind me. She must’ve heard us fighting. Hell I bet the entire town heard us fighting.

“I came home from coffee, and I found Poppy kissing this punk.” I gestured to the scared teenage boy hovering behind my sister.


“Poppy, I told you no boys in your room! Do you ever listen to me?” My mom lunged at her.

“That’s a stupid rule.”

“I don’t care if you think it’s stupid. I’m you’re mother and you will obey my rules, you understand me?”


“You can’t always tell me what to do!”

“As long as you’re living under my roof, you will listen to me.”

“Yea, whatever.”

“Also, you can’t be hitting your brother.”


“Aw, does little baby River need his Mommy to stick up for him? How sad.” She mocked. I balled my fists and bit my tongue. She was really pissing me off.

“Poppy, you get this boy out of your room right now.” My mom’s voice growled, she sounded like a demon when she said it.

“Whatever, c’mon Aloe, let’s go to the beach.” She reached out for the boy’s hand but he didn’t grab it back.


“Oh hell no. You’re not going anywhere with him. You’re not going anywhere for a loooong time.”


“Why? Why? Are you serious Poppy? You’re grounded for a long time.” She put her fists on her hips and turned to the teenage boy. “And you, get the hell out of my house.” He nodded and ran out as fast as he could. Little punk.


“Thanks Mom, you just scared off my boyfriend! Now he’ll probably break up with me!” She cried, tears threatening to spill from her makeup rimmed eyes.

“I don’t care.” Mom screamed, and stomped out of the room. I quickly followed behind her, I didn’t want to be stuck in the room alongside the spawn of Satan.


A/N There are only one or two more chapters left of Primrose’s generation, then we can start on River’s. Thanks so much for reading, it means so much to me.

Primrose Fae Chapter 12: Basil

A/N Text written in italics is Basil explaining what happened to him. Screenshot-1600

“Prim, it’s so great to see you again.” He pulled me into a bone-crushing hug. I hugged him back as hard as I could, not really caring that he was soaked from the rain. Jeremy stepped out, he knew I would want to catch up with my brother alone.

“Basil, I thought you were dead.” I started to cry into his shoulder.

“Shh, it’s okay Prim. I’m not dead. I’m here.”

“C’mon, we’ve got to catch up.” I grabbed his hand and pulled him towards the couch.


“I guess I should start from the beginning?” I nodded and he sighed.

Well, as you know, I was only a baby when this all happened. After you left me in the cabin, I stayed there for a day or so. I was confused, I didn’t know where anyone was.

“Wait, Basil how do you remember this? You were only two.”

“I have Hyperthymesia, it means I can remember almost everything that’s ever happened to me.” He explained.

“Oh, carry on then.”

Well, a group of independent scientists searched Moonlight Falls after the human government scientists did. I was apparently the only supernatural left in the town. So they took me with them.


First, they took me to a hospital of sorts. I don’t really know what it was, humans are pretty strange. But anyway, I was extremely confused, they looked so much different from us, I couldn’t hear them and they were getting frustrated. 


They put me on a table and examined me. The woman was getting frustrated for some reason, but the men were trying to calm her down. Being a baby, I didn’t really understand or care what was happening then. They were talking amongst themselves and not to me. 

They eventually stopped and turned their attention back to me. The woman took me in her arms, and the four of us left.


They took me to a small research center. The kept me in a room with glass walls. They ran a bunch of different tests on me, specifically my wings. It was extremely painful.


They weren’t completely heartless, the did give me a few toys to play with. But still, that didn’t make up for the torture they put my through every single day.


Years passed like this. The man and the woman were there every day. Some days they didn’t do tests, they just used their weird machines and never even looked at me. 


When I was a teenager, the woman took me out of my room and tried to do weird scans on me. I wasn’t very cooperative, the machines were huge with flashing lights, and I could feel their vibrations through the floor. I fought against her, I refused to be hooked up to one of her machines. 


She attacked me that day. She kicked me, her face was twisted with anger like I’ve never seen. She was probably screaming at me, but I couldn’t hear her.


I was on the floor by the time she was done with me. I was having a hard time breathing and I was sure I was gonna throw up. But it wasn’t over yet. She got a vile from the other room, and poured the contents all over my face. It burned like hell. I tried to wipe it off, to make it stop. But it only made it worse. 


I gasped, his story just kept getting worse and worse. “Even I wasn’t treated so horribly. Oh god Basil this is all my fault.”

“No it’s not Prim, it’s the humans fault.” He told me, and continued with his story.


As you can see, my face never fully healed from that. From that point on I never resisted. She did all these weird scans on my head. I never really understood what she was doing, but I obviously couldn’t ask.


One day, she knocked me out. Not with her fists but with actual medication. I’m still not sure how long I was out for, but when I woke up everything was different. 

I could hear.

It was extremely strange, being able to hear things after a life of silence. It was a long process, learning to speak and understand their language. 


I had been able to hear for a year, I could speak Simlish fluently by this point. Their names were Dr. Marx and Dr. Lee. They were both out that night, like they usually were. But that night was different. I was breaking out. 

I had no idea where we even were, but I knew that anywhere was better than here. 


The door was made of glass, so it was fairly easy to break out of it. I didn’t own any shoes though, so my feet got cut up pretty bad. 


It wasn’t that hard to get out of there. I mean, the front door locked from the inside, and my walls were made of glass. I guess they didn’t think I was smart enough. 


I walked for hours. I had no idea where I was going, but I just kept moving. It was around midnight when I was found. But I was found by someone from the human government, and well they cleaned me up, rehabilitated me for a while. 


“Then they dropped me off in front of your house, and now we’re here.” He finished with a chuckle. His story was anything but funny though. It hurt so much, to think of my baby brother going through all that torture. I felt so guilty.

“I’m so glad you’re still alive.”

“Me too.” He rubbed his hands together nervously. “So, are those you’re kids?” He motioned to the picture of Dill, Missy and River on the wall.

“Yea, two of them are my step kids but I consider them mine. But I’ve got two of my own.” I smiled. “They’re at school right now, but they’ll be home soon. They’ll be so excited to meet you.”

“I can’t wait to meet them. I’ve always wondered how you’re life turned out.” He smiled sadly.


“Well, at least now we can spend our lives together. We’ve got two empty bedrooms, if you need a place to stay.”

“That’d be nice.” We smiled at each other.


Basil and I just sat and talked for a while. I told him about my life so far. He was really interested in my kids, it was sweet. Speaking of my kids, River should be home soon.

“Oh gosh,” I suddenly remembered my husband was home. “I forgot to introduce you to Jeremy!” I called out for him, and he came rushing in a few seconds later.

“Yea Prim?” He smiled.

“This is Basil, my little brother.”


They introduced themselves, and soon they were talking like they were best friends. I was glad, I knew Jeremy didn’t have many friends besides me, Hero and a few guys from work.


Basil and Jeremy were in a deep discussion about something science related, (I had no idea my husband was so into science, who would’ve guessed?!) when River came home.

“Hey guys, I’m-” He called, but stopped when he noticed we were right there. “Oh, hi.” He glanced at my brother curiously.


“Hi sweetheart.” I hugged him, like I did everyday when he came home from school.

“Hi mom.” He pulled back and gave me a questioning look.

“River, this is your uncle Basil.” I smiled stepping aside to give River a better look.

“I have an uncle?” I nodded, and he smiled. “That’s so cool!”


“I’m River, but I assume my mom has probably told you.” He joked, and Basil let out a snort.

“Yea, she sure can talk.” All four of us laughed, I could talk a lot once I got started.

It was still a huge shock to me that Basil was here. We were having a great time, getting to know each other again. But of course, once something in my life is going good something has to ruin it.


“Mommy, what’s going on?” A small voice snarled from behind me. I didn’t hear the door open through all the chatter.

“Oh, sweet heart, this is your uncle Basil.” I told her cheerily.

“Okay?” She rolled her eyes at me.

“Don’t give me attitude, Poppy. We’ve been through a lot today and I really don’t need your sass.”


“What happened to his face?”

“Poppy!” Both Jeremy and I shouted. Basil touched his scars softly, his expression turning hurt under his fingertips. River put a hand on his shoulder and squeezed reassuringly.


“That was extremely rude, you can’t say stuff like that to people.”

“I just did though.” I narrowed my eyes at her but she didn’t flinch.

“Poppy Chrysanthemum Fae, you apologize to your uncle or you won’t be having a birthday party.” I warned.


“Are you serious? First I have to share my room with my disgusting brother, I have to share my house with that, and now I can’t even have my birthday party? This is so unfair!” She screamed, making both Basil and River cringe.

“What’s unfair is how you are treating your family.” I said softly, and Jeremy came up behind me.

“Up stairs, now.” He growled. Poppy’s eyes widened with fear, and she ran up the stairs right away. Jeremy didn’t get mad often, but when he did, it was scary.


“Oh god Basil, I’m so sorry.” I ran over to him and squeezed him as tight as I could.

“It’s fine. I can find another place to stay if you want.”

“Nonsense. Poppy is just being a brat, she’ll get over it. I refuse to let you leave, not after all you’ve been through.” I squeezed him even harder.

“Thanks Prim.” He patted my back. “I can’t breathe.”

“Oops, sorry.” I let go and we both laughed.


Don’t forget to vote for who you want to run Gen 2!

Primrose Fae Chapter 11: Family Ties



For the past month that name has been stuck in my head. I just had to know who it was. So late one night, I snuck out. It was hard to get dressed without waking Poppy, but I managed. I was gonna take one of the cars, but even though it would take less time it would be more obvious.


I took my dad’s bike up to the cemetery. Usually, I’d never sneak out. But there’d been rumors around school. One of the girls who lives right by it has been talking about ghosts. It seemed childish at first, but as people started talking about ghosts with wings, I had to check it out.


Unfortunately, I wasn’t the only person at the cemetery that night. There were people scattered all around the place, and it made it more likely for me to get caught. But it was too late to back out now.

There was something standing by the grave. Or rather, someone. Screenshot-1479

My heart was pounding so loud in my chest I thought it would burst right out. As I got closer, I realized that this figure was a person. She was obviously a fairy, she had dark blue wings sprouting from her back.


“Hello?” I asked, not sure if she could hear me.

“River? You can see me?” the woman asked cautiously. Her voice echoed and sounded far away, like she was standing on the other side of a cave.

“Um, yea? Who are you and how do you know my name?”

“Oh dear, I’m your grandmother.” She sighed. “You shouldn’t be here. Not at night.”

“What’s your name?” My mom never talked about her mother. She never said anything about her life before the experiment. I never really wondered about my grandparents, I just assumed no one knew their grandparents.

“Flora. I noticed you came by a while ago.” She giggled.


“So we are related. Who’s buried next to you?”

“My husband, your grandfather.” She smiled.

“How did you guys get buried here? I thought you died before the experiment.” It might’ve been an insensitive question, but I was dying to know. No pun intended.

“Well, I died first. Your grandfather was knocked out, and they thought he was dead too. They threw us in a trunk, your grandfather never let go of my body when he woke up, bless him. When they found out he was still alive, they killed him too. They did experiments on out bodies, but when it came time to bury us, they had run out of places in their graveyard. They were still developing this place, so they just dumped us here. They were nice enough to give us headstones though.” She laughed, like she had told a joke. She was a little odd.

“How come they didn’t just cremate the bodies?”

“Good question.” She laughed again. “I’ve got to get going, and you should go too. I’d say tell your mom I said hello, but I wouldn’t want to get you in trouble. Or locked up in a loony bin.” She laughed, and disappeared before I could say goodbye.




“Dad, we’ll come and visit.” Missy promised. She and Dill we’re both out of high school now, she was in the military and he got a job at the theater.

“I know, but I’m still gonna miss you guys.” He stuttered.

“Dad, the trucks here.” Missy laughed, still wrapped in her fathers arms. He let go and smiled sheepishly.


“Bye guys, we’ll call you soon!” Dill said as he and Jeremy put the boxes in the truck. We all waved at them as they drove off.


Their house was just down the mountain from us, so I knew we’d be seeing them pretty often. But still, it was gonna be a little strange without two of our babies at home.


“Babe, do you think they’re gonna be okay?” Jeremy asked for the thousandth time that night.

“Yes, I think they’re gonna be fine. They’re adults now.” I picked up his guitar and handed it to him. “You’re stressed.”

“Thanks Prim, you always know what to do to calm me down.” We spent that night jamming random songs, something we used to do when we were younger. It was nice.




“I am so sick of you!” I yelled at my dumb brother.

“What did I do?” He stuttered. I almost laughed, it was funny how nervous I could make him.


“You are so freaking lame! All you ever do is play video games or make dumb things with that table out back!” My brother was such a nerd, it was so embarrassing. I didn’t even want to call him my brother.

“So? Why does that bother you?”

“Ugh! Because, if you’re lame people will think I’m lame.” I rolled my eyes. How are we even related?

“That doesn’t make any sense.”


“You are so stupid. Don’t even talk to me. I’m tired of seeing your face every single freaking day.”

“Poppy, we share a room.” He bit his lip, trying not to laugh.

“I don’t care. I’ll move into Missy’s old room.” I fumed.

“Whatever.” He crossed his arms.

“Oh, and stay away from Clover. Shes MY best friend.”


“What? Clover chooses to hang out with me, it’s not like I force her too.” He muttered.

“I don’t care, she’s my best friend.” I growled.

“You sure she feels the same? Why do you think she always leaves you for me?” He laughed. I restrained myself from slapping him, Mom said if I hit him again I’d be grounded all summer.

“I hate you River.” I stormed into the kitchen away from my dumb brother. He was ruining my life.




“There’s nothing to do, the rain sucks.” Clover complained. It was her birthday, she had been planning a party at the beach but had to cancel due to the rain.

“Sorry, Clo. We could go play video games?’ I suggested. Clover was really my only friend around here since Misty left. Poppy told me to stay away from her, but I’m not gonna let a child tell me who to hang out with. And besides, Clover likes me better.

“We always play video games, it’s getting old.”

“Then what do you suggest we do?” She looked back at me and sighed.

“River, do you like me?”

“Of course I like you, you’re my best friend.”

“No, I mean romantically.” She smiled nervously and pulled her legs up on the bed.


“I really like you, River. I know I’m younger than you, but I’m willing to try and make this work.” She was speaking really fast, I knew that was a nervous habit of hers.

“I-I don’t know what to say.” She laid her palm down on my knee and smiled. “I’ve never really thought about you that way.”

“Then think about it, if it repulses you then I’ll back off. But if it doesn’t, would you want to try?” I thought about it for a moment. Clover and I got along really well. We liked a lot of the same things, and we enjoyed spending time together.

“Clover, you don’t repulse me.” She smiled wide and laid across me.


“Do you really mean that, River?”

“Of course. But what about our parents? I mean, I’m older than you. It could be weird for a while.” Her dad was in the military, he kinda scared me sometimes.

“We can keep it a secret until I’m old enough.”

“It’s gonna be hard.”

“I know. But I’m willing to try, are you?” She asked.

“Yea.” I smiled at her.


She swung he leg over me and kissed me hard on the lips. She caught me off guard, I was so shocked I almost bit her tongue. But I didn’t, so I kissed her back. Kissing was something I wasn’t very experienced in and I was pretty self conscious. I didn’t want her to think I was a bad kisser.

“I’m so glad you’re gonna try, River. I’ve been dreaming about this for so long.” She told me when she pulled back for air.

“I had no idea.” She laughed and kissed me again.


For the rest of the evening we alternated between making out and talking. Now, we were cuddling on her bed just talking. We were chatting about school, our friends, and our after school activities.

“River, did you know my mother, before she died?” She asked me suddenly.

“I-I did.” Chrissy wasn’t someone I liked talking about.

“What was she like?”

“I was only four when she died, I don’t remember that much about her. But I do remember that she was really loud, and she laughed a lot.” I answered honestly. “My mom and her were best friends, I bet my mom could tell you all about her.”

“I’ll have to ask her.” She smiled sadly. I couldn’t imagine my life without my mother. She was one of my best friends, no matter how lame that sounds.

“It’s getting late, I should probably head home before my mom suspects something.” We sat up and I shrugged sadly. We climbed off the bed and she walked me to her bedroom door.


“Goodnight River.” She shifted slightly onto her tip-toes and kissed me. I touched her face gently and pulled back.

“Goodnight Clover, sleep well.” I pecked her one last time and left her bedroom. I touched my lips gingerly, they were swollen from all the kissing from the day. Hopefully mom won’t notice. I thought to myself as I headed down her stairs.




Now that all of our kids were out of the house during the day, Jeremy and I had some alone time. We worked nights so we slept in and just hung out around the house. Today started out just like any other. Jeremy and I were on the couch watching a random movie, just enjoying each others company.

Our down time was interrupted when the doorbell rang. “I’ll get it.” I told my husband, pulling myself off the couch. I threw the door open carelessly, expecting the maid. But the person behind the door was definitely not our maid.

I couldn’t breathe. This couldn’t be real. I must have made some kind of noise, because Jeremy jumped up from the couch and was behind me in a few seconds.


I hadn’t seen him in so long. He was obviously much older now, and he looked so different, but I knew it was definitely him.

“H-how,” I started, but then I remembered he couldn’t hear me. I fumbled with my hands, trying to remember the sign language I learned all those years ago.

“Prim, I can hear you just fine.” He said, his voice was deep and scratchy, like it had been strained recently.

“B-but how?”


“It’s a long story, can I come in? It’s raining pretty hard right now.” He asked nervously.

“Oh god, of course, come in.” I ushered him in, getting a closer look.



Despite the huge scar covering his face, I knew without a doubt this was my baby brother.


A/N Sorry this chapter is a little all over the place. But I think Prim is gonna have 3-4 more chapters, and then our next heir will take over. I’ll put the heir vote up soon (probably later today or tomorrow), before Prim’s gen is over so I can have it up while I play/write and so I can focus more on the winner’s story. Thanks so much for reading, it means so much!

Primrose Fae Chapter 10: The Truth Comes Out


Time was flying by way too fast for me to register it. Dill was in his last year of high school, and River was just about to start eighth grade. Our three kids were so close, they rarely ever fought and they always hung out with each other. It made our lives a lot easier.


River was a lanky little thing, he was so skinny I thought he would fly away. But I knew he would bulk up soon, he was really into sports. He joined the basketball team at his school, and he was always in the backyard shooting hoops. He often pulled Dill out with him, even though Dill wasn’t much competition. He was more of a musical guy.


I was so thankful that the teenagers didn’t give us trouble, because Poppy was a handful. Ever since she became a toddler, she was throwing tantrums left and right. She was always screaming about something. It was usually about the highchair though, she hated that thing.

“Please Princess, calm down.” Jeremy cooed at our kicking toddler. She didn’t listen and continued to fight, so he pulled her out of the chair.


“Do you know what happens to little girls who are bad?” Jeremy taunted. Poppy shook her head, tears still running down her face.


“The tickle monster come for them!” He laughed and started tickling her. She screamed with laughter, all traces of her tantrum flew out the window. I watched them from the kitchen with a smile on my face. Poppy could be a handful but at least my husband knew how to deal with her.


The only time Poppy didn’t scream was when Clover was over. The two of them were as thick as thieves. Clover was a little older than her and she could talk in full sentences, but they still had fun playing together. They reminded me so much of Chrissy and I, their personalities were so different but they worked well together. My little Poppy was loud, sneaky, and rebellious. Clover on the other hand, was much quieter and was usually a follower.


I babysat Clover during the week while Hero was at work. All I had to do was put them in front of the dollhouse and they could keep themselves busy for hours.

“My dolly is da daddy and yours is da mommy.” Poppy explained to Clover. I bit my lip and waited for Clover’s response.

“What’s a Mommy?” Clover asked, cocking her head like a confused puppy.

“Hello?” Hero’s voice boomed from downstairs. Thank god.

“We’re up here.” I called out.


“Hi honey.” Clover threw her dolls down and reached up for her dad. Poppy pouted, she didn’t like her friend giving anyone else attention.

“Daddy!” She squealed as he adjusted her on his hip. He kissed her on the forehead.


“I missed you sweetie.” He turned to me and smiled. “Thanks Prim.”

I looked up from my book and waved him off. “No problem. Poppy loves the company.” We laughed, and he left.

As they were leaving, I heard Clover ask “Daddy, what’s a mommy?” His footsteps stopped on the stairs. He didn’t respond and left the house as fast as he could.

I felt terrible about what happened, but I didn’t have much time to dwell on it because Poppy started another tantrum.




Our evening had started just like any other, me doing my daily exercise routine, and Dill practicing one of his many instruments. Misty was out with Dad getting driving lessons,and Mom and Poppy were both already asleep. I guessed they had a hard day. I’m not a bad kid, neither is my brother. But tonight we were alone, and there was something I really wanted to do.


I clicked off my video and headed toward my brother, motioning for him to put his guitar down.

“Hey, can you give me a ride?” I whispered in his ear,

“Where to? Did mom say it was okay?”

“No, I didn’t want to wake her up. Besides, you’re almost eighteen, have you even done anything remotely rebellious?” I cocked an eyebrow and he sighed.

“Fine, but we’ve gotta be back by curfew, okay?” He searched the room for his keys.

“But that’s like, in an hour! It’s gonna take us at least twenty minutes to get there.”

“What? Where are we going?” He put his keys down on the desk.

“The cemetery. I wanna check those unmarked graves out.” He gave me a bewildered look and shook his head.

“No way man. The thugs hang out there at night. We can’t.”

“We’ll only be there for five minutes, I promise.” I begged.


Twenty minutes later we arrived at the cemetery. I jumped out of the car and took off running for the graves. There were two unmarked graves right next to where Chrissy was buried. My mom said they must’ve been put here before any of us moved here. No one could figure out what they said, but I think they weren’t trying hard enough.


The graves were fenced off with a gray fence that was about up to my waist. People weren’t supposed to go over the fence, but I needed to get a closer look.

“River, I don’t know if this is a very good idea.” Dill gave me a weary look.

“We’ll be fine, I promise.” I said, and started to squeeze myself through the small space in the fence. Once I was in, Dill followed suit.


I chose one of the graves at random and knelt down in front of it. It was covered in dirt and starting to fall apart in some places. It was obviously cheaply made and not well cared for. I brushed some of the dirt off with my hands, revealing some words.

“River, we should get going.” Dill was looking over at the street with a nervous look on his face. I craned my neck to see what he was looking at. A car had parked, a man about my fathers age got out of the car and let a woman out of the passenger seat. He was purple, and his hair color was similar to mine. I ignored them and got back to cleaning off the grave.

“I’ll be fast, okay? I’ve already got something.” I assured him. I got down closer to the grave, the tiny letters were carved crudely into the stone, spelling out a name. Flora Fae.

“What does it say?” Dill whispered.

“Flora Fae. She has the same last name as me, do you think we’re related?”

“It’s a possibility, but River we’ve gotta go.” He pulled me off the ground and took off running.


I slowly jogged after him, my mind occupied with thoughts of this mysterious Flora. Was she related to me? Maybe my parents know who she is. I couldn’t ask them though, at least not yet. Maybe I could come back this weekend and check out the other grave. Is that person a relative too? It was all so exciting.


It was almost midnight when we got home. The house was quiet so I knew Mom was still asleep. Dill and I grabbed some leftovers from the fridge when then front door opened.

“What are you two boys still doing up?” Dad asked as he headed for the fridge.

“We lost track of time, you know how video games are.” I never lied to my parents, I was surprised at how easy it was.


“Ah, I know how it is.” Dad laughed. “I won’t tell Mom, I promise.” We were lucky our parents were so cool.

“How did driving lessons go?” Dill wiggled his eyebrows, and Dad groaned. Misty was a bit reckless, and had a short temper with everyone but me.

“I bet you can guess.” Dad rubbed his temple, making us laugh again. “You boys should head to bed before your mom wakes up.” He suggested, throwing his juice box in the trash and headed up the stairs.

I said goodnight to Dill and followed Dad up the stairs. Poppy was still asleep, so I had to be quiet so I wouldn’t wake her up. I did that once on accident, and she wouldn’t stop crying for hours. I felt so bad, my mom couldn’t sleep all night.

I usually didn’t have trouble sleeping, but that night my mind was racing too fast to relax. There was too much to think about.




“River, can you get dressed and go downstairs please? Your father and I need to talk to you.” I told my son, who was playing blocks with Poppy on the other side of the room.

“Sure thing, Mom.” He smiled at me and stood up. I gave him a stiff smile and quickly left the room.

Today Jeremy and I were going to tell River the truth. He was older now, and even though I really didn’t want to, I knew it was time. River was usually a calm, quiet kid but I was terrified to see how he reacts. My heart was pounding as I went to find Jeremy, who ended up being in the kitchen.


Five minutes later, River sat on the couch and Jeremy and I stood in front of him. I balled and unballed my fists nervously.

“Mom, what’s going on?” River looked between the two of us nervously.

“River, sweetie, there’s something I need to tell you.” My voice wavered. I took a seat on one side of him and Jeremy did the same on the other.

“You guys are really scaring me.” He admitted, looking back and forth.


I rested my chin in my hands and fixed my gaze on the table.

“River, we love you. So much. What I’m about to say won’t change that, okay?” I couldn’t look at him. I didn’t want him to see me cry.

“Mom… this is really freaking me out.”

“Honey, I bet you’ve noticed that you’re different from Dad and I, right?”

“Yea, I just assumed I had recessive genes.” He told me, I could tell he didn’t believe that. “Wait, are you saying I’m adopted?”

“No, you’re definitely my son. I can’t forget those hours of labor.” I joked. “It’s just, well. Dad isn’t you’re biological dad.”


“You’re father was my boss. We um… had an affair of sorts. He lived with me, and we were dating for a few months. One day I found out he was engaged, and he left me. The next day, I found out I was pregnant with you.” I summarized the story, I didn’t want him to hear the specifics.


“Y-you’re not my Dad?” River jumped off the couch and looked down at Jeremy. Both of their expressions were filled with pain, it broke my heart.

“I may not be your biological Dad, but I love you like my own son.” Jeremy told him.

“So does this mean, Misty and Dill are my… step siblings? And Poppy is my half sister?” I nodded sadly. He glared at me. “You lied to me. How am I supposed to trust any of you ever again? This is bullshit!” He yelled. I’ve never heard my son curse. I cursed plenty in my life, but it was still shocking to hear it from your fourteen year old son.

“River Fae, we don’t cuss in this house. I know you’re upset, but that kind of language is inappropriate.” Jeremy scolded.

“Why do I have to listen to you?” He screamed, tears started streaming down his face.

“Please calm down baby.” I stood up and tried to pull him into a hug. He pushed me off him lightly.

“Leave me alone.” He his voice cracked, and he took off running out of the house.

“Oh Jeremy, I messed up so bad.” I buried my face in the nape of his neck. “What if he doesn’t come back?”


“Don’t worry, Love. You didn’t mess up. And he’ll be back. He just needs to calm down a little.” He stood on his toes and kissed me on the forehead. “I think I know someone who can help.”




Everything I knew was a lie. My Dad wasn’t really my dad. My siblings weren’t really my siblings. My real father had no idea I even existed.

Sure, I thought it was strange that Dill, Misty and I were all vampires and our parents were fairies. But I never really gave it a second thought. Does this mean that my father is a vampire? What about Misty and Dill? Did they have the same mother or different mothers? It was all too much. My mind was racing. I knew I shouldn’t have snapped at my parents, I was just too upset to think rationally. I really hope they don’t punish me.

I’m not really sure how I ended up at the park. I’ve only been to this park a few times, I preferred the park a few blocks over when I was younger. But I guess something drew me to this park.


“Hey River.” A voice broke through my cloud of thoughts. I looked up from the swing, and my ‘sister’ stood nervously beside me.


“You okay?” I glared at her. “Okay, dumb question. How’re you doing?”

I ignored her question. “Did you know?”

“River…” Her voice trailed.

“Did. You. Know.” I growled.

“I did.” She admitted.

“Why didn’t you ever tell me?” I jumped off the swing and yelled, the few other people at the park looked over.

“Please River, calm down.” She whispered, looking around nervously. “Come here.”


She pulled me into a tight hug. Once her arms were around me, I couldn’t hold it back anymore. I don’t cry often, let alone in public. But right now I didn’t care. She held me while I cried, comforting me by rubbing circles on my back.

“I love you, River. I don’t care if we’re related by blood, you’re as much of a brother to me as Dill is.”

“I love you too.” I croaked. My throat was dry from crying so much. “Do you know her?”

“Know who?” She pulled back a little and looked me in the eyes.

“You’re real mother.”


“No, nor do I want too.” She stated. “Why?”

“I don’t know. I might want to meet my real dad.”

“I don’t know if that’s a very good idea River…”

“I’ll think about it.” I wanted to know what he was like.

“Okay. Well, I think I’m gonna head back home, coming?”

“Can you give me a ride to the gym, I need to cool down a bit before facing Mom and Dad again.” I asked hopefully.

“Sure, but they aren’t mad at you. They understand that you’re upset.” She smiled, her braces sparkled in the sunlight. We left the park arm-in-arm. I wasn’t as upset as I was before, but I definitely had a lot of questions for my mom.

Primrose Fae Chapter 9: Right Here, Right Now


The past few months had been really hard on me. What Jeremy told me was hard to process. I wasn’t mad at him, I knew it wasn’t his fault. It was just hard to find out the truth about what happened. It was also a little strange to me that he was half human. He didn’t look human at all, he told me he took after his mom mainly except for his eyes. But still, it was weird.

There was also the stuff that Chrissy told me. I still couldn’t figure out if it was just because I missed her or if she really did contact me in my dreams. I had no way of finding out if I was really royal or not, the humans has taken all of our historic documents into observation. I hadn’t had another dream like that since that night. So I came to the conclusion that it was just how my subconscious was dealing with my grief.

It was really hard to get through most days. Jeremy was always there to help, but he couldn’t always give me what I needed. I needed a girlfriend, and I wasn’t sure I could ever replace the one I had.

Today was one of those hard days. I sat in my living room with my head down on the couch cushion. I was crying silently, even though I was alone. Or so I thought.


I didn’t even feel the couch dip when he sat down on it, I guess it’s because he’s still so small.

“Momma, are you sad?” River questioned. My head shot up to look at him. He was sitting on the other end of the couch, leaning towards me.

“I’m okay sweetie.” My voice cracked.

“You’re too pretty to cry, Momma.” River smiled innocently.

“Thanks baby. But everyone gets sad sometimes.”

“Are you sad about Chrissy?” He whispered. I nodded, and her frowned. “I miss her too Momma. But you know what always makes me feel better?”

“Whats that?”

“A kiss!”


He jumped off the couch and took my head in his small hands. He kissed me softly on the forehead. “I love you Momma.”

“I love you too baby, thanks for making me feel better.” River was such a sweet kid, he was always trying to cheer everyone up, or make someone feel good. He was a great kid, and I couldn’t have asked for a better son.

“No problem Momma, I like making you smile, it’s so pretty.”

My boy was too cute.



“How was you’re day, Love?” Jeremy asked me later that evening as we stood in our bedroom.

“Hard. Thank god for River though, he cheered me up a bit.” Jeremy smiled.

“Yea, he’s pretty great at that.”

“He must get it from you.” We giggled. River didn’t get his personality from me or his actual father.

“I think I know how to make your day even better.” He smiled.

“Oh really?” I flirted, giving him a questioning look.

“Yes really.” He started to lower himself to the floor.


“Jeremy, what are you doing?”

“Something I should’ve done a long time ago.” He was down on one knee now, and he was reaching into his pajama pants pocket.


He pulled out a small black box and opened it, revealing a beautiful engagement ring.

“Primrose, I’ve had a crush on you since you started working at the theater. I didn’t act on it at first, because you were so badass it was intimidating. When I met Becca, my crush went away, but I still thought you were gorgeous. After Becca threw me and the kids out, I was so lost. I had no idea how I was gonna raise two kids on my own. When we ran into each other at the park that day, I knew it was meant to be. You saved me from a dark place in my life, and I owe you my life for that. I love you Primrose, and we’ve been a family for so long now, and I think it’s time to make that family official. Marry me. Right here right now.” Only Jeremy could use the word ‘badass’ and mention an ex girlfriend in his proposal.

“Yes! And no. I’ll marry you, but not right this second. I want the kids with us. This wedding isn’t just for us, it’s for our family.” I replied, a smile spread so tight across my face I felt like my head was going to explode.

“This Saturday then? Just you me and the kids.”

“I’d love that. I love you, Jeremy.”


“I love you too, Prim.” He kissed me on my cheek. “C’mon love, lets celebrate.” He winked and pulled me too the bed.



We decided to get married on the same beach Chrissy and Hero got married on. We invited Hero, but he was exhausted from taking care of Clover all night so he stayed home. I let Missy do my hair, she made it wavy with her curling iron and put it up. It looked amazing, she was pretty talented.

So, we all stood in the sand in our formal wear, no wedding decorations or anything. We probably looked ridiculous, but we didn’t care.Screenshot-1234



We kept our vows short and sweet. We didn’t want River to get bored, and I didn’t really know how to put my emotions into words. Mainly the last reason… But anyway, it was a gorgeous wedding and more importantly we were finally an official family.


And of course, in a true newly-wed fashion, we came home and immediately consummated our marriage.




I snuggled Clover closer to me. “Hey Clo, it’s your birthday today.” I whispered quietly to the bundle in my arms. She gurgled in response and I chuckled. Even though she couldn’t talk yet she always tried to respond to me.

I took her into our bedroom and laid her down on the bed while I changed into my everyday clothes.

“C’mon Princess, lets go celebrate.” I lifted my daughter off the bed slowly and carried her downstairs.


The birthday cake was already set up. We were celebrating alone, the Fae’s were all out that day. Everyone wanted to distract themselves today. I know I did too.

I carried her to the cake, lit the candle and sang happy birthday softly to the baby in my arms. I blew the candle out for her when I was done and sat her on the floor. I stood back and watched my baby transition.


When the sparkles cleared, a gorgeous little toddler sat where my baby used to be. She had her mother’s hair and my eyes. She reminded me so much of her mother, it made my chest ache.


I scooped her up into my arms. “Hey Clo, wanna go visit Mommy?” I cooed. She giggled, so I took that as a yes.


Fifteen minutes later we stood at the familiar grave spot. I sat Clover on the ground and faced my wife’s headstone.

“It’s been a year, Chrissy. I still miss you so much. I wake up in the middle of the night and reach for you, until I realize you’re gone. It’s been so hard Chrissy. I don’t know how to live without you. Clover and I need you Chrissy.” I sobbed, Clover gurgling innocently by my feet. “I miss you Chrissy. We all do. I promise, you won’t be forgotten. I promise our daughter will know what an amazing woman you were. I love you, my little flower.”

I always spoke to Chrissy when I came to visit. I was usually the only one there, the only other graves here were some unmarked ones and ones for pets. Even if someone else was here, I still talked to her. I didn’t care if I seemed crazy, she was too important for me to care.


I picked up Clover and tossed her in the air. She screamed with delight and I smiled. Clover was the only person who could cheer me up. It was hard for me to love her at first, but her giggling was so sweet and innocent, I couldn’t blame her for what happened anymore.

“We love you Chrissy.” I blew a kiss at the headstone and headed out, Clover bouncing on my hip.




“River, how would you feel about being a big brother?” I stopped River by the shared mailbox, he was probably heading over to see Clover, who had just become a toddler.


“That would be so cool!” He squealed. “I’ve always wanted a younger sibling Momma!”

“Well you’re in luck buddy, your Daddy and I are having another baby!” I announced. His face lit up and he jumped up and down.

“This is so exciting Momma, I can’t wait! When are they coming?”

“In a few months, so we gotta be patient.” I smiled. His smiled dropped a little.

“Aw man. That soo long.” He whined. But then his face lit up again “But its still gonna be so cool!”


“Where is the baby, Momma?”

“They’re in my tummy, would you like to feel?” He nodded and I placed his hand on my tiny bump.

“I can’t feel anything.” He frowned.

“Yea, they’re still really tiny, but you’ll be able to feel them soon.” He smiled. “Now you can’t tell Daddy, he doesn’t know yet.” I put my fingers to my lips. He nodded and ran into Hero’s house. I smiled and shook my head.

“What doesn’t Daddy know yet?” A deep voice asked from our porch.

“Well that Daddy doesn’t know that in a few months he’s going to be a Daddy of four instead of three.” I smirked as I watched his expression changed. It went from questioning, to confusion then to excitement.

“Oh my god, you’re pregnant?” He squealed like a child. I nodded, my eyes starting to leak tears. He ran down the stairs and immediately put his hand on my stomach.


“Oh my god Primrose, I can’t wait.” he looked up at me, his eyes watering too.

“I’m nervous.” I admitted. When I found out we were expecting, my immediate reaction was panic. I was scared, no doubt about it after what happened with Clover’s birth. I knew it was silly, that kind of thing isn’t very common. But still I was afraid.

“That’s understandable, babe. But I promise, I won’t let anything happen to you or our baby.” I smiled through my tears. I was so thankful I had the father in my life this time around.



This pregnancy went by a lot faster than my pregnancy with River. It’s funny how much has changed since then. I had a real family now, and I didn’t have anything to worry about.

“Prim, I can feel her kicking.” Jeremy and I had found out we were having a girl. When she’s born, we’ll have two sons and two daughters. A perfect balance.

“She probably trying to kick her way out.” We laughed, I was almost a week over my due date, and if I didn’t go into labor by tomorrow, I was gonna have to be induced.

“Why don’t you try exercising? I read online that that can help induce labor.” Jeremy suggested. We had tried a few things already and so far nothing has worked.


So I ran upstairs and changed into some work out clothes and put on an old exercise video. I did all the stupid routines for about an hour, until I got bored and had to pee.


When I went to the bathroom, a horrible pain ripped through my abdomen. I freaked out, Chrissy was found in her bathroom, and I thought this was a bad sign.

“Jeremy!” I yelled.

“Prim, is it time?” Jeremy yelled as he ran down the stairs. Screenshot-1294

“I think s-AHH” I screamed as a contraction hit. Jeremy rushed in the bathroom and helped me out to the car.


Five minutes later we were rushing into the hospital. We were more than ready to have this baby.


Later that night we brought home our new daughter. We named her Poppy, Jeremy came up with the name late one night. We both loved it and so it stuck. We set up a crib in River’s room, he really didn’t mind sharing, he’s a very heavy sleeper so the baby’s cries won’t wake him at night.


Once Poppy was settled, Jeremy pulled me into a kiss.

“Thank you Prim.” He whispered softly against my cheek. “She’s beautiful.”

“I could’t have done it without you.” I smirked. Our moment was interrupted by the bedroom door flying open, revealing a wide eyed River standing in the hall.

“Is that her? Can I see her?” He cried with excitement.

“Of course Bud, just be quiet, she’s sleeping.” Jeremy said, ushering him toward the crib.


“Wow, she’s so tiny.” He whispered, pressing his face against the side of the crib. “She’s so pretty Momma.”

“She is.” I smiled and Jeremy wrapped his arm around my waist.

“Was I ever this tiny?” I laughed.

“You were actually smaller, Poppy is a pretty big baby.” River looked up at us with a bewildered expression.

“I don’t believe that.” We all giggled softly, then he turned to the two of us with a serious expression. “Momma, how come her skin color matches Daddy’s, but mine doesn’t match either of yours?”

Oh god. I was not ready to explain this. Not yet. “River, it’s passed your bedtime, isn’t it?” He frowned at the change of subject, but thankfully let it go for the night.


Happy new year guys! Thanks for reading so far, and I hope you all have a great 2014.

Primrose Fae Chapter 8: Royals


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.


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.


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.


“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.”


“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?”


“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.”


“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.


“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.


“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.


“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.


“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?”


“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.


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.”




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.


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.


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. 


“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.


“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.”


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. 


 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. 


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. 


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*


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.


“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?


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.


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.


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.


“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.


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.


My little baby wasn’t so little anymore.



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.



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. 


“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.


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.




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.


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.


“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.


“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.”


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.


“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.


“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.


Screenshot-65... Screenshot-139... Screenshot-374...Screenshot-763... Screenshot-769...Screenshot-800...Screenshot-833...Screenshot-1067... Screenshot-1091...Screenshot-1111...

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


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.


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.


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.


“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.




“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.


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.


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.


“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.


“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.”


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.


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.


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.


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.


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?”



“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.


“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.




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.


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.


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*


“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.


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.


“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.


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.


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*


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.


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

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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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


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.


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.


“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.


“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.


“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!”




“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.


“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.


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.


“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.


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.




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.


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


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.


“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.


“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.


“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.


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.


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.


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.


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.



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.


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.


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.


“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.


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.”


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.


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


“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”


“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.


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. 


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.


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


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. 


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.”


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.


“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.


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.




“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.


‘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*


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.


“Hey Prim!” Jeremy called from behind me.


“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.”


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.


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


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


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.




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.


“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.”
