Lake Fae Chapter 14: Back and Forth

A/N:¬†NSFW images, and I got new eyes defaults towards the end of the chapter so everyone looks a little different. I’m not sure how I feel about them yet, let me know what you think. Enjoy the chapter ūüôā

“Are you sure you want to leave so soon? We can buy you a robot if you really want one, we have plenty of money.” Ursa offered me for the millionth time this morning.

“Thank you, but I’d rather use my own money, and besides, I want to see if my girlfriend wants to come. She’d probably like it here.” I thought about Freesia last night, I knew she would love the future and I had to see if she wanted to come.

“Oh, okay. Well, be back as soon as you can, alright?”

“I will, I promise.” I gave them all a quick wave before heading over to the machine.

I clenched my fists as the doors opened. The feeling of time travel was extremely uncomfortable, but it was something that had to be done.

Screenshot-6942

Luckily it only lasted a few minutes. I once again came out of the machine, but this time I was back in my own time. As soon as my feet hit the floor I remembered everything. I remembered that I was supposed to go back in time to save my sister. I remembered that Stone was counting on me. And I remembered I didn’t even try to go to the right time. He was gonna be pissed.

Screenshot-6944

“What happened? Are you okay, you look like you’re gonna be sick.” Stone immediately started questioning me as soon as I noticed he was there.

Screenshot-6946

I didn’t know what to say. I didn’t know how to answer him without letting him down. I also didn’t know how to tell him I ended up in the future and only came back to get money to buy a robot.

So I ran.

“Wait, Lake, what happened?” I heard him yell after me. I ignored him and kept running. I didn’t know how to explain myself.

Screenshot-6947

I didn’t stop running until I was in my room. I immediately searched for the box of money I had under my bed. It was just enough to buy the robot, I’d been working with Blackberry for a little while and managed to save up. It was supposed to be for the apartment for Freesia and I, but I knew she’d understand.

After finding the box, I stuffed it with as much of my stash as I could. I had no idea if they even had stuff like this in the future, so I had to take as much as I could get.

Screenshot-6949

As soon as I had everything I needed I started to run again. I had to get to Freesia’s before Stone caught up with me.

Screenshot-6950

“Hey babe, you’re mom let me in, I have the craziest news for you.” I exclaimed loudly as I entered my girlfriend’s bedroom. It was¬†almost five am, but I knew she’d still be awake. She didn’t sleep until morning.¬†I was excited to tell her the news, but that quickly disappeared when I saw what was going on.

Screenshot-6952

Freesia had a guest.

Screenshot-6953

“Oh my god, Lake.” Freesia immediately pushed Blackberry away, but it was too late. The damage was done.

Screenshot-6954

“Wait, Lake, come back!” Freesia yelled after me as I ran out of a room for the third time that day.

———–

Screenshot-6955

A million questions clouded my mind. How long was this going on? Why did she do this? Was I not enough for her? Was she ever gonna tell me? I felt absolutely heartbroken, I loved Freesia and I wanted to marry her one day. It was the second worst pain I’d ever felt in my life.

Screenshot-6956

“Can we talk?” Her voice asked from behind me. I looked up at her, at least she had the courtesy to get dressed and leave Blackberry upstairs.

“Fine.” I sighed.

“I didn’t mean for you to find out like this.” She said quietly. That immediately set me off. I hadn’t even realized how angry I really was.

Screenshot-6957

“No, you didn’t want me to find out at all! How long has this been going on?” I was yelling, there was no doubt her family and Blackberry could hear me.

“Since he joined the band.” She replied quietly.

“This has been going on for a few years? How could you do this to me?”

Screenshot-6961

“I didn’t mean to hurt you, that wasn’t my intention.” She gave me her best ‘sorry’ face, but I knew she didn’t care all that much. I knew her too well. She wanted me out, that was obvious now.

“Save it. I wanna say I can’t believe this, but honestly I can. I never should’ve trusted you, my sister was right about you.”

“Lake, I really am sorry.”

Screenshot-6968

“STOP. I’m done. We’re over and I never wanna see your face again.” I screamed at her as loud as I possibly could.

“Lake, please.” She looked as if she were about to cry, and for a split second I felt bad. I quickly snapped out of it though, she didn’t deserve my pity.

Screenshot-6982

“No, fuck you.” I glared at her before storming out of her house.

I hoped this was the last time I’d ever see Freesia Gill in my whole life.

————-

By the time I got back to the garage I was fuming. I could barely contain my anger, I felt like I could punch an hole through something or someone.

“Lake, what the hell is going on?” Stone asked. He had been sitting on his bed but he jumped up as soon as I came back in.

“None of your damn business.” I snapped.

“I think it is my business, I built this thing and you were supposed to save¬†our¬†sister. Did it even work?” He asked angrily.

“Stop, leave me alone.” I glared at him as I started punching in the date again on the machine.

Screenshot-7040

“Dude, I’m worried about you, what happened?” He asked, genuine concern in his voice.

“Leave me alone, and don’t come looking for me. I never wanna see any of you again. I’m gonna be staying in the future.” I snarled as the doors of the machine started to slide open.

“The future? Lake what the hell are you talking about?” Stone asked, and I realized I had accidentally told him where I was going.

“Nothing, just don’t come for me. I’ll be happier where I’m going.”

Screenshot-7042

“Wait, Lake please don’t go, we need to talk!” I heard Stone yell as the doors closed behind me.

————-

Screenshot-7043

All thoughts of Lake and Freesia were quickly thrust from my mind as soon as I got to the future. I immediately felt twenty times better, it was as if I never even went back home.

“Oh thank god.” I muttered as I happily looked up at the sky. I had been worried about being able to get back here, last time was an accident and I wasn’t sure it would happen again.

Screenshot-7048

“Welcome back, Lake. How was your trip back home? Where is your girlfriend?” Andromeda asked brightly.

“It was terrible actually, but I got my money. She was actually cheating on me, but I don’t really care. I’m okay.” I smiled, it felt like everything that happened had been years ago, and well, technically from where I was now, it had.

“I’m sorry to hear it didn’t go well, but at least you’re okay.” Orion smiled at me.

Screenshot-7050

“Yea, I’m great.” I smiled and dropped my arms to the side, immediately hitting the box in my pocket and reminding myself why I went back in the first place. I smiled slyly to the group and said, “So, who wants to go get a robot?”

Lake Fae Chapter 11: That’s Impossible

Screenshot-6727

“So do we have a gig this week or no?” I asked Freesia over the blaring music. Allium and Blackberry’s party was pretty awesome, but I just wasn’t feeling it tonight. Something felt off, I couldn’t explain it.

“I don’t think so, I know that we have one next weekend but this week we don’t have any.” Freesia responded.

“Where at? Our usual club or somewhere new?” I asked hopefully, we’d been playing the same club for almost a year now and I wanted a change of scenery.

“Same old place.” She looked as disappointed as I felt. We weren’t doing too hot lately and it scared me.

Screenshot-6730

“What are we gonna do, Babe? We don’t have a backup plan anymore, if this goes south we’re screwed.” I fiddled with a loose string on my jeans. I was extremely nervous, this was my dream and I didn’t want to fail.

“I don’t know, but we’ll figure something out. Maybe Blackberry could hook us up with one of his suppliers.” Blackberry was a drug-dealer, he made good money and it wasn’t a terrible idea.

“Are you sure you wanna get involved in that? ¬†It’s pretty dangerous.” I told her. It was pretty dangerous, there were rival dealers and a lot of cops, it wasn’t easy and I didn’t want her getting hurt.

Screenshot-6731

“I know it’s dangerous, but I think I would get a lot of business. I’m cute and I can talk anyone into anything. I would be an awesome drug-dealer.” She gave me a flirty smile. “Don’t worry, I’ll be fine. You worry too much.”

“I do not, I just don’t want my baby getting hurt.” I assured her.

Screenshot-6732

“Then maybe we could be a team. I do the talking and you carry the product, so you can scare the shit out of the buyers so they won’t try anything with me.”

“That’s actually a pretty good idea.” I admitted. We would make a great team and we ¬†could probably make a lot more money that way.

“Awesome, I’ll talk to Blackberry another time, he looks a little busy.” She gestured behind us, where he was making out with some random girl we’ve never seen before.

Screenshot-6734

“So since we’re gonna be partners on this, maybe we should get a place together, y’know, so I’m always protected in case something goes wrong.” She asked hesitantly. It wasn’t a bad idea.

“Yea, I’d love too, but let’s give it a few weeks, just so we can save up enough to get a nice place.”

“That makes sense.” She smiled at me. “I can’t wait.”

“Me either, it’s gonna be awesome waking up to your face every day.”

“Yea, same here.” Freesia smiled at me again, before glancing over at the array of drugs across the coolers in front of us. “Do you want anything, babe?”

Screenshot-6733

“Um,” My eyes grazed over all the drugs, until they landed on a small baggie of coke. “I could do a line.” I motioned towards the baggie.

“Me too.” She smiled at me before starting to prepare the lines for the both of us.

“So how are things at home?” She asked, not looking up from the makeshift table.

“Y’know, the usual. Dad’s drunk, Stone’s in the garage, and Skye’s on my ass constantly. I can’t wait to get out of there.” I told her as she leaned down to do her line.

“Yea, I can’t wait for you to get out of there either. You’re sister is so annoying, constantly nagging you. It’s like she’s trying to be your mother or something.” She sneered.

“I wonder where she gets it from, we never really knew our mother.” I wondered aloud as I went in to take my line.

“Who knows, she’s annoying as hell and soon you won’t have to deal with her.”

“Thank god, now lets stop talking about that.” I wrapped my arm around Freesia and pulled her close to me, before twisting around so that she was underneath me.

Screenshot-6738

“Then what do you wanna talk about?” She gave me a flirty smile.

“How about we stop talking and start kissing?”

“Sounds like a great idea.”

It was still raining by the time I got home around six AM. But it wasn’t as bad as it had been last night, it was raining so hard I had to sleep at the party. I had taken a cab from Allium and Blackberry’s place, as they lived in Riverview, the next town over. It was a pretty long drive but I didn’t really mind.

Screenshot-6747

I didn’t expect anyone to be awake, no one was ever awake around here at six, so I was a little surprised to see them, fully dressed and sitting in the living-room nonetheless.

“What’s going on here, you guys look miserable.” I half-laughed.

Screenshot-6748

But they didn’t laugh with me. They didn’t say anything for a while, and I started to panic. My dad was never in the living-room, and if that wasn’t odd enough it looked like he’d been crying. I couldn’t even see Stone’s face, it was buried in his hands. I couldn’t help but wonder where my sister was.

“Can someone please explain to me what’s going on? Did something happen?” I asked after a few more minutes of silence.

Screenshot-6752

“Yea, something happened.” Stone jumped up, practically yelling at me. I cringed and took a step back, I was a little scared for what he was about to say. “Skye and her friends went to the beach, and when they were out in the water the storm got too bad, they weren’t able to get out. They all drowned.”

His words made my stomach drop.

Screenshot-6754

“N-no, that’s impossible. Skye is great at swimming, we’ve gone swimming so many times.” My voice started to waver, this couldn’t be happening.

“The storm got too rough, even a professional swimmer wouldn’t be able to get out.” Stone explained through his tears.

“No, no this can’t be happening.” I mumbled as my head started to spin. I felt like my heart had been ripped out of my chest and I couldn’t breathe. She couldn’t be dead, I just saw her last night. She was fine.

Screenshot-6758

“A-are they sure?” I asked, hopeful that maybe she was still out there, they just hadn’t found her yet.

“T-they’re sure. They recovered the bodies a f-few hours ago.” Stone explained between sobs.

“Oh my god.” I clutched my chest, the whole room was spinning and I felt like I was gonna pass out.

“Do you need to sit down, Lake?” My dad asked, but I could barely hear him. My mind was racing, what could I have done differently? Was this my fault? Maybe if I had gone with her I could’ve stopped this, or at least I would’ve died too and I wouldn’t have to live without her.

Screenshot-6761

I sank to my knees, I couldn’t stand anymore. I was sobbing too hard. I felt awful, maybe if we hadn’t been fighting for the past few years she wouldn’t have made new friends and she wouldn’t have gone.

Another sob ripped through my body as I realized I would never be able to make up with her. She would never know that I do still love her and that I didn’t want us to be fighting forever.

She would never know.

*Four Years Later*

Screenshot-6694

A lot has changed since Lake and I’s falling out. After the night in the club, Thistle and I became and item and we’ve been inseparable ever since. He’s been my rock throughout all the troubles I’ve had with my older brother. He also dropped out of the band right after the first gig, he was not happy with Lake after he punched him. They haven’t really talked since.

Another new thing was that my other older brother, Stone had a boyfriend now. I didn’t even know he liked guys until he brought Thyme home. They make a great pair and I’ve never seen my older brother happier.

Both Stone and I were enrolled at the local community college, he was studying some kind of science something or other and I was studying journalism. My dream was to become a famous reporter.

Screenshot-6695

“Are you sure you guys wouldn’t be more comfortable on the couch?” Thistle asked Stone and Thyme, who were currently watching the television from the floor.

“We’re fine, we have more room to stretch out down here. Thanks though.” Thyme smiled graciously at my boyfriend.

Thistle was about to respond when the front door swung open and slammed loudly against the wall.

Screenshot-6698

“Aye bitches, what’s up?” The new Time Association drummer, Blackberry, shouted as the band entered the house. They’d been spending a lot more time here after Stone moved into the garage and Lake got the room all to himself. Even though they had all the band equipment they could ever need in there, I never heard them practicing at all. I had my suspicions about what they did in there, and from the looks of it it looked like they’d been doing it elsewhere too.

Screenshot-6699

“Really, Lake? Coming home high again?” I could tell he was on something by the unfocused look in his eyes.

“Chill out, don’t be such a mom.” He slurred, making his little crew chuckle.

“Honestly Lake, you gotta stop this.”

Screenshot-6701

“What’re you gonna do? I’m nineteen, I can do whatever the hell I want.” He scoffed, getting ready to walk away.

“You have to stop being a loser sometime, Lake.” I blurted out and immediately regretted it.

Screenshot-6704

“I’m not a loser, Skye. My band is finally getting bigger and what are you doing? Going to school to be some dumbass writer? Do you really need a degree to ask people questions then write it down? You’re such a bitch and I’m so tired of your constant nagging. Leave me alone and mind your own damn¬†business.” He was practically yelling by the time he finished.

Screenshot-6706

“I’m just worried about you, Lake.” We might not be best friends like we used to be, but he was still my brother and I cared about him.

“Ha, yea right.” He laughed sarcastically. “You’re just a control freak who likes to control everything and everyone. Leave me alone.” He scowled at me before turning to his band. He stuck out his hand for Freesia and led them all upstairs to his room.

Screenshot-6708

Even though we did this constantly, each time it felt like my heart was being smashed into tiny pieces. Thistle could tell I was starting to get upset so he immediately stood up and started to comfort me. I was thankful at least he was here for me.

*Lake*

Screenshot-6709

“Shit man, this set up is so sick!” Allium claimed excitedly as he and Blackberry played with my new gaming system.

“Thanks man.” I¬†chuckled, it was nice to have a gaming system in my room. Otherwise I’d have to play in the living-room, which was not ideal.

Screenshot-6710

A lot of things had changed since our first gig. Thistle left the band to be a nerd with Skye, which really sucked for a while but we eventually found Blackberry. He was a few years older than us but he was an awesome drummer so we didn’t mind. Another thing was that Allium and Amaryllis broke up. It happened about a year after the first gig, they broke up when she thought we were getting too deep into drugs.

Screenshot-6711

The drugs we were taking now were more hardcore than before but that didn’t mean we were addicts. We could stop any time we wanted, we just didn’t want to.

“Hey Babe, pass me a hit.” I asked Freesia who was sitting next to the stash.

“Of course.” She smiled at me before grabbing a needle.

Screenshot-6714

A few minutes later I was high again and on top of my girlfriend.

“You are so fucking gorgeous.” I whispered against her lips.

“You guys better not start fucking in front of us, I swear to god I will kick your ass.” Blackberry threatened without even looking away from the television screen.

“Screw you.” Freesia stuck her tongue out at him before pressing her lips into mine.

———–

Screenshot-6720

A few days later I sat in the kitchen, half eating cake and half scrolling through my Instasim feed. I was going to a party at Blackberry and Allium’s place, they’d recently become roommates and they were throwing a housewarming party. It was gonna be epic.

Screenshot-6722

“Uh, hey Lake.” A voice broke me away from my phone. I looked up to see my sister standing in the doorway in a bikini.

“What do you want, Skye?” I asked, probably a bit too harsh. But I didn’t care, she was being such a bitch lately.

“Well, I’m going to the beach with a few friends tonight, would you like to come?” She asked hesitantly.

Screenshot-6723

“What makes you think I wanna hang out with you and your lame ass friends?” I stood up and crossed my arms.

“I-I don’t know, I just wanted to offer. I know you like the beach and I thought you might wanna come.” She looked like she was fighting back tears.

“No, not with you. And besides, it looks like its gonna rain tonight. That’s pretty dangerous and I’m not an idiot.”

“I don’t think it’ll be that dangerous, its supposed to be just a light rain.”

“Doesn’t matter, I’m going to an actual party, one with cool people and beer. I’m gonna have fun with my friends while you guys sit in soggy sand and be miserable. Have fun.”

Screenshot-6726

“Fine, whatever, I just wanted to try and make things right with you. You make it so hard for people to like you.” She sighed, before turning to leave.

“Whatever”¬†I plopped back down in my chair and pulled my phone out again, continuing with what I was doing as if nothing happened.
