Jasmine Fae Chapter 9: Have a Nice Night

Warning: There are some traumatic event’s coming up, read at your own risk.

I picked myself up off the floor and ran out of Hawthorn’s room as fast as I could. As soon as I was safely behind the door I grabbed a random shirt from my dresser and threw it on. If I was about to be found out by the authorities, I’d rather not be in my bra when it happened. Hawthorn was angry, I could hear him throwing things and punching the walls. I silently begged him to stop. He was scaring me, and the racket he was making would alert the neighbors.

While I was crouched near my dresser, I heard the front door open. I considered hiding under my bed, but ultimately it wasn’t worth it. It would just prolong things. The door slowly creaked open. I covered my eyes, I didn’t want to see whoever was there.

Screenshot-5123

“Hey Jasmine, it’s okay, it’s me.” Dimitri slowly pulled my hands away from my face. I glanced around the room, making sure we were alone. “What the hell happened to your face?” He asked angrily.I gingerly touched the eye Hawthorn punched. It hurt to even touch, I could imagine it looked pretty bad. I didn’t make eye contact with him. I didn’t want to admit what happened.

“Jasmine, please, talk to me. Did Hawthorn do this to you?” I nodded and hiccuped from my sobbing.

Screenshot-5124

“Oh god, I’m so sorry.” He pulled me off the floor and into a hug. “Jasmine, I’d completely understand if you want to leave.” I shook my head.

“No, I can’t leave now. I can’t let him win.” I whispered against his shoulder.

“I just don’t want you to get hurt again.”

“I won’t let him hurt me again.”

Screenshot-5126

“I hate that you have to see me like this.” I muttered. I didn’t like looking weak in front of people.

“It’s okay, I understand.”

Screenshot-5127

“Don’t worry Jasmine Blu, you’re too good for him.” He kissed me on the forehead. When I got here, I decided not to use my real last name, I didn’t want to bring my family into this. So I gave him my mom’s first husband’s last name, Blu. “I’m gonna take care of this, alright?”

“Don’t hurt him. You’ll just be down on his level.”

“I won’t, I promise.”

I didn’t have much time to mull over what happened with Hawthorn before I had to leave for work. Even though the club was practically empty tonight, our boss made as dance as if the place were packed. It was slightly annoying, putting all this effort into something and have no one watch, but we didn’t really have a say in it.

Screenshot-5128

Luckily the night was coming to a close. I just wanted to go home and crawl into bed. I wanted to pretend like this day never happened. My eye was starting to hurt worse, I could barely concentrate on my dancing. Thankfully my sunglasses also covered the majority of my injury, it was practically unnoticeable under the black lights.

It wasn’t long before the bar owner closed for the night. The bartenders left immediately and the dancers all went back to the dressing room.

Screenshot-5131

“Is it just me, or are we losing customers?” Candy, one of the dancers here, asked us as we all got ready to go home.

“No, there’s practically no one here anymore.” The other girl replied.

“Do you think they’re gonna start firing people?”

Screenshot-5133

“I sure hope not, I suck at cleaning houses.” The second dancer, Jamie, sighed in annoyance.

“Me too. Dancing is what I’m good at.”

“What do you think they’re gonna do?”

“Hopefully nothing too drastic. I heard one club has started selling the dancers to people for feeders.”

Screenshot-5136

“What do you think’s gonna happen, Jazz?” The dancer Jamie asked me.

“Dunno. Maybe it’s just a slow month, hopefully things will pick up soon before any changes are made.”

“Hey Jazz, why do you always wear those glasses?” Candy asked with a giggle.

“I think they make me look badass.” I answered nervously. I didn’t wanna get into this.

“You should take them off for a little while, I bet your eyes are gorgeous.”

Screenshot-5140

“Hey ladies, announcement time.” Our creepy boss burst into the dressing room before I could respond to Candy. “As you might’ve noticed, we haven’t been doing so hot lately. So I’ve come up with a plan to get us some more business. You guy’s are gonna start having sex with the patrons for money, you’ll get to keep forty percent of the tips you make. Have a nice night.”

When he left, there was an eerie stillness in the room. No one moved, no one said anything, I don’t think anyone was even breathing.

Screenshot-5145

I was completely screwed.

———-

Screenshot-5157

After the announcement my boss made, I rushed out of the club as fast as I could. I didn’t want the other girls to notice how nervous I was. Now that I had to sleep with the customers I was at an even greater risk of being caught. I couldn’t wear my sunglasses during sex, and even if I could they could fall off at any time.

As soon as I got home I got ready for bed. Hawthorn was already home and if I stayed up any later I knew I’d run into him. I really wasn’t in the mood to talk to anyone, especially not him.

Screenshot-5158

“So I heard about the changes the boss made.” Hawthorn’s voice startled me, I didn’t realize he was behind me despite the large mirror Dimitri gave me. I guess my plan to avoid him failed miserably.

“What’s it to you?” Part of me knew I shouldn’t sass him, but I couldn’t let him treat me like shit.

“You’re mine. I don’t wanna share you.”

“I don’t belong to you, asshole.” I could see his nostrils flare with anger. I watched him ball and un-ball his fists. I knew he was furious with me, but I never expected him to do what he did next.

Screenshot-5161

Hawthorn charged at me.  He covered my mouth with his hand and he twisted my arm behind me.

“You are mine, whether you like it or not.” He growled in my ear. I tried to scream, but his hand was covering my mouth. I also realized Dimitri wasn’t home yet, and if I screamed the neighbors would hear and I’d be toast. Either way I feared for my life.

Screenshot-5163

He dragged me over to the bed and threw me onto it. It didn’t take me very long to figure out what he was about to do.

“Get the fuck off me.” I cried, thrashing my limbs around to get him off. But he was too strong for me, he wouldn’t budge.

“If you tell any one about this, especially Dimitri, I will kill you.” He threatened as he undid the buttons on his pants.

“Please don’t.” I begged him to stop, but it only made him more determined.

There was nothing I could do to stop him.

Jasmine Fae Chapter 7: Gentlemen’s Club

Screenshot-4973

“Hey Jasmine, how’re Mia’s clothes fitting?” The day after I arrived, Dimitri brought me a box of his sister’s old clothes. It’s been a few days since I arrived at Bridgeport. I hadn’t left the house since and I didn’t want too. Hawthorn’s conditions required me to get a job, and for fairies there weren’t a lot of options. I could either strip on a stage for fat, balding vampire old men, or I could clean snobby vampire mansions. Neither of them were appealing.

“For the last time Dimi, it’s Jazz.” I called him by the nickname I came up with for him. He chuckled.

“Fine, Hey Jazz, how’re my sister’s clothes fitting?”

“Awesome, thanks.” I smiled at him. I was really grateful for everything he’d done for me.

“Um. can I sit?” He asked nervously.

“Sure, is everything okay?”

Screenshot-4974

“Well,” He started as he flopped down onto my bed, making the whole thing shake. “Hawthorn’s getting a little impatient. He wants you to make a decision.”

I was worried that’s what this was about. I chewed my lip nervously. “What do you suggest I do?”

“Wait, you want my opinion?” He looked shocked.

“Yea, is that weird?”

Screenshot-4976

“No, it’s just that no one’s ever asked for my opinion.” He laughed sadly. My heart broke for him.

“Well, I’m asking for it now.”

“Honestly, I hate to say this but I think you should go towards stripping. Being a servant would mean you’d have to work near people, and they don’t allow sunglasses with those jobs. With stripping, you can wear whatever you want as long as it’s provocative. And besides, no one would be looking at your eyes.” He blushed.

Screenshot-4977

“That makes sense. Not exactly my dream job, but I’ll deal.”

“I’m really sorry, I know this sucks.”

“Hey, it’s fine. It’s not that bad, I’m not gonna stay here forever.”

Screenshot-4979

“Where are you gonna go after this?” He asked.

“Dunno, probably back home, or maybe I’ll try and find another place. I’ll have to see.”

“Oh, okay.” He started to get off the bed, then stopped. “Oh yea, I work at a club, so I bet I could get you a job there.”

“Thanks Dimi.”

“No problem.” He said as he jumped off the bed. “We’ll go tonight, okay?”

“Sounds good.”

———-

Screenshot-4989

It was a Monday night, so no one was really out tonight. Dimitri didn’t have to worry about anyone seeing us together as we walked to the club. We walked in silence most of the way there, but that was interrupted when we approached the back of the club. A muffled scream came from beside us.

Screenshot-4993

I glanced to my side and saw something I’ll never be able to un-see. An older vampire was kneeling over a fairy, and he was drinking her blood.

“Oh my god.” I whispered, I was afraid if I screamed, he would hear me. “Should we do something?” I asked Dimitri quietly.

“There’s not much we can do.” He hung his head and led me away.

Screenshot-4997

“Stay here, I’ll go talk to my boss.” He said, before rushing off inside.

I leaned against the wall of the club. I could feel the bass thumping against my back as I waited. I hated that he left me out here, right next to that horrible man and that poor girl. I couldn’t hear her screaming anymore, and I figured she was dead.

Screenshot-4999

It wasn’t long before I heard footsteps. I couldn’t exactly place which direction they were coming from, but I didn’t have to wonder for long. The man who was hunched over the girl came running out from behind the club. I pressed myself against the wall, I wished I could just disappear through it.

He ran right past me, not even giving me a second glance. I exhaled, not even realizing I was holding my breath.

Screenshot-5003

“Hey Jazz.” Dimitri startled me.

“Dammit Dimi, don’t scare me like that.”

He chuckled. “C’mon, My boss said you can work here. Just pick a pole and give whichever girl is working it a break.”

“I’ve never done this before.”

“Yea, but you’ll catch on.” He spun on his heel and headed for the front entry.

Screenshot-5004

The bouncer’s at the door were both human, and when I entered the club I saw even more humans. I’ve never been near them in my life, and it was nerve-wracking. They were all terrible creatures, and if they found out what I was, I’d be dead. This made my job a lot harder.

Screenshot-5005

I didn’t want Dimitri and Hawthorn to watch me, they were both bar-tending tonight and I didn’t want to embarrass myself in front of them.

Screenshot-5008

So my only option was the pole furthest from the bar. Sure, it was still visible from there, but the view was obstructed.

“Hey, mind if I take over for a bit?” I asked the pink-haired fairy who was sliding down the pole.

“Sure, I could use a break.” She giggled. “It’s all yours.”

“Thanks.”

Screenshot-5011

I approached the pole cautiously. I had no idea what to even do with it, I’ve never really paid attention to how strippers dance. I glanced to my side, and realized that the only person in my section was the man from outside. Great.

I grasped the pole as tight as I could with clammy palms. The only way I would survive this night was keeping my feet on the ground. There was no way I could do the crazy moves the girls around me were doing.

Screenshot-5012

I just had to wing it.

———

Screenshot-5025

The next morning I had the apartment to myself. I had no idea where Dimitri and Hawthorn were, but I was pretty sure they weren’t home. So I made myself comfortable on the couch and watched some television. Last night was exhausting. I had no idea how out of shape I was until I had to keep dancing for hours at a time. It was definitely the longest night of my life.

Screenshot-5028

“Morning.” Hawthorn said from the hallway. Guess I wasn’t home alone after all. He was shirtless, revealing his heavily tattooed body. I couldn’t help but get a little turned on at the sight of him.

“Hey.”

“Watcha watching?” He asked as he flopped down on the sofa next to me.

“Some human gardening show. It’s kinda pointless.” He laughed.

“Yea, their shows are pretty pointless.”

Screenshot-5029

“How was your first night at the club?”

“A lot harder than I thought.”

“Don’t worry, you’ll get the hang of it.”

“Thanks. How long have you worked there?” I asked, it couldn’t hurt to get to know him.

“Since high school, I had to start working after my parents died in a car accident.”

Screenshot-5032

“I’m sorry to hear that.”

“It’s alright, it happened almost twelve years ago.” He smiled at me. “What about you, what’s your deal?” His question reminded me of Ash, and how he asked about my story on our first date. My heart ached, I couldn’t help but wonder how he was doing, and if he’d moved on yet. We agreed that we’d see other people until I return, if I ever did.

My answer for Hawthorn was similar to the one I gave Ash. “There’s not much to tell.”

“Oh come on, you showed up here on a boat a few days ago, you’re the only hybrid ever, there has to be something.” His answer was eerily similar to the one Ash gave me. This was all too weird for me.

“There’s not much to tell.” I repeated. He pulled his legs onto the couch and faced me.

“Fine, don’t tell me.” He whispered seductively. Part of me wanted to slap him, but another part of me wanted to kiss him.

Screenshot-5033

The latter part won.


Hey guys, so I’ve been trying to get my graphics to look nicer, and I was wondering if anyone knows of any good hq mods. Thanks in advance and sorry this chapter is kinda short, I haven’t been feeling my best lately, but hopefully I’ll be back on track soon 🙂

Jasmine Fae Chapter 6: Bridgeport

Screenshot-4903

I had been out on the ocean for almost a month when to my surprise, I came across land. It was an odd sight, after weeks of vast, blue ocean surrounding me. I was disappointed, I was sure I was gonna die out there. There were multiple times where I considered tipping the boat over and drowning. But I was on a mission, and it came first. So when I came across land, I was excited and upset at the same time.

Screenshot-4906

I climbed out of the boat and onto shore. I was so used to the constant rocking of the boat, and I almost lost my balance a few times. Once I got my footing, I looked around. I didn’t know where I was, and I was pretty freaked out. If I ran into some humans, I’d be a goner. They’d either kill me or turn me in.

Despite my fears, I decided standing here wasn’t gonna do anything for me. I decided to take a look at the huge dome across from me.

Screenshot-4908

“Hello?” I approached the dome-thing, but stopped when I noticed someone crouching behind a bush. I also noticed he wasn’t human.

“You shouldn’t be here.” He said.

“Excuse me?”

“Get back on your boat and go. Your kind aren’t safe here.”

Screenshot-4909

“Look, I don’t know where you’re from but you’re not safe-” He stopped and got off the ground. He furrowed his brows at me, and I realized he was staring at my eyes.

“What are you?” He asked.

“Nice to meet you too.” I rolled my eyes.

“A-are you a hybrid?” He asked cautiously.

“Yea, I guess you could say that.”

Screenshot-4911

“How is that even possible?” He asked, and as I started to respond he stopped me. “Hold on, let’s get you out of here first, it’s not safe.”

“What do you mean it’s not safe?”

“I’ll explain later, just trust me a little.”

I shook my head. “Do you really expect me to trust I guy I just met?”

“Please.” He was practically begging now. “If we don’t get you out of here, you’re gonna die.”

“Is that a threat?”

“No, look just come on.”

Screenshot-4917

I didn’t really know what else to do, so I decided I should trust him.

———

Screenshot-4921

“Where the hell are we?” I asked him.

“Bridgeport.”

“Why the hell are these building so huge?”

Screenshot-4923

“All the buildings here are pretty huge.” He explained.

He didn’t say anything else before walking into the building. Inside, there was a fountain and on the other side of the room, was a huge metal door.

“Can you push the elevator button for me? I gotta make sure no one’s coming.” He asked, leaving me confused.

“Elevator?”

“Do you not have elevators where you live?” I shook my head, and he sighed. “Alright, hold on.”

He walked up the the huge metal door and pushed a button next to it. It did nothing.

“What is it supposed to do?” I asked.

“Give it a minute.” As soon as the words left his mouth, there was a ding. “Stand back for a second.”

The doors opened, revealing a tiny little room. It looked like a closet.

“What the hell?”

Screenshot-4928

He walked into the little room and I followed him, I didn’t really have any other choice. He pressed another button, and the doors closed.

“What the hell is going on?” I almost started to panic, but I didn’t wanna seem weak in front of this guy.

“It’s taking us to our floor.” He said, as the small room began to move. I grabbed the railing to my left and held on tight.

“I don’t like this thing.” He chuckled but didn’t say anything.

Screenshot-4929

When the doors opened again, the room in front of us was completely different. He glanced out, and when the coast was clear he told me to step out. I didn’t say anything as he walked up to the only other door in the room and unlocked it.

“Hawthorn?” He called out into the room. No one answered, and he shrugged. “Looks like its just us. Come on in.”

Screenshot-4930

I glanced around the room cautiously. He had his own bar and his own arcade games. It was a really nice place.

“Take a seat.” He offered. I sat down next to him on the couch.

“Alright, so we’re inside now, can you tell me what the hell is going on?”

“In a minute, first I wanna know where you came from.”

“Sunset Valley.”

“How long did it take you to get here?”

“Almost a month.”

“Wow.” He looked shocked. “Why did you leave?”

“Lot’s of reasons.” I was starting to get uncomfortable, I wasn’t comfortable telling him things when I didn’t even know his name.

Screenshot-4932

“So, mind telling me your name?” I changed the subject, I didn’t want to get into this right now.

“Dimitri, and yours?”

“Jasmine. Is that a human name? I’ve never heard it before.”

“Yea, my parents are like obsessed with human culture. It’s a little weird.” He chuckled nervously.

“Is Sunset Valley also an experiment town?” He changed the subject quickly, it was obvious this wasn’t something he wanted to get into.

“Yea, this is one too?”

“Yea, unfortunately.”

Screenshot-4933

“So, mind explaining why it isn’t safe?”

“Yea, sure.” He sighed. “Well, the outcome of this experiment is probably a lot worse than where you’re from. The first Vampires here were very set in the old ways, they refused to be put on the same level as the Fae. So they gathered all of them, and um, made them live in tiny houses, didn’t let them work, and pretty much starved them. It was awful. It’s not as bad nowadays, but they still don’t let Fae live near vampires. And the only jobs Fae can have are servants and sex workers. Vampires and Fae aren’t supposed to talk to one another, so if anyone saw you talking to me they are legally allowed to shoot you.”

Screenshot-4934

I looked at him, to see if he was joking or not. He stared straight ahead with a pained expression on his face, and I knew he wasn’t.

“So, why are you talking to me? Couldn’t you get in trouble?”

“I’m not like them. I know that Fae deserve to be treated with the same respect we’re treated with. So I try and help any chance I get.”

“So, what would happen to me, since I’m both?”

“I don’t know, vampires and Fae have never actually mated here, so we don’t have any hybrids.”

“So what am I supposed to do? This system is so fucked up.”

“Yea, tell me about it.” He sighed.

“Who’s in charge here?”

“My father, actually.” He laughed sarcastically. “He’s an asshole, all he cares about is power and money. He doesn’t give a crap about anyone other than himself. I’ve tried to reason with him, but he kicked me out.”

“Wow.”

“Yea, I know.” His phone buzzed, and he jumped off the couch. “Shit, I’ve got a shift at the club in like twenty minutes, you’re welcome to stay here for as long as you need. We’ve got a guest room you can use.”

Screenshot-4936

“Is your roommate okay with me staying here?” I asked as I followed him to the room.

“I’m pretty sure he’ll be fine with it.”

“Pretty sure? That’s not very reassuring.”

Screenshot-4940

He laughed as he opened a door and ushered me in. “Don’t worry, Hawthorn isn’t too bad of a guy.”

“Yup, definitely reassuring.”

He laughed again. “Alright, I know it’s not much, but you can do whatever you want with it. We don’t get a lot of guests.”

Screenshot-4941

“Thanks, it’s perfect. I’ve never really had a room all to myself before.”

“Really?”

“Yea, I’ve got twin sisters. We all shared one room.”

“Wow. Well now you’ve got this one all to yourself.” He smiled at me. “I’ll leave my number by the fridge, call me if you need anything.”

“Thanks Dimitri.” I closed the door behind him after he left.

I couldn’t believe my luck, I just happened to run into someone who wanted to help me instead of kill me. It almost felt too good to be true. But right now, I was too tired to care. I hadn’t slept in a bed in a month, and it felt like ages.

Screenshot-4944

The first thing I did was take my little animal out of my pocket and put it on the nightstand. The second thing I did was flop down on the bed and stare at it. I missed Ash already. Part of me wished I brought him with me. Another part of me really wished I had died out there. I still didn’t deserve to live. I still caused someone to die, no matter where I went.

I drifted off, thinking about Ash and Cherry and everything I left behind.

———

Screenshot-4946

“You did what?” A man yelling woke me from my nap.

“Dude, she didn’t have anywhere else to go, what was I supposed to do?” Dimitri sounded upset.

Screenshot-4949

“You can’t save everyone, Dimitri. I know you’re desperate to be a hero, but is it really worth it? We could get killed for just having her in our building.” I got off the bed and pressed my ear to the door to hear them better.

Screenshot-4950

“You don’t know that for sure. There are no laws about hybrids.”

“Dude, if they found out we had a fairy in our apartment, they’d kill us. Imagine what they would do if they found out we had a mutt living with us?” The word mutt made me cringe. This guy didn’t even know me and he was already calling me names.

Screenshot-4951

“Then we’ll be careful. I promise, nothing bad is gonna happen.”

“It’s too risky. If we get caught, you’ll put your entire family to shame. Your father will have to resign and they’ll lose everything.” The other man, who I’m guessing is Dimitri’s roommate Hawthorn, tried to guilt trip him. It didn’t work though, because Dimitri let out a small, sarcastic laugh.

Screenshot-4954

“Do you really think I give a damn? I don’t care what happens to my parents. They’re both shitty people who only give a damn about themselves. So don’t even try to use that as a guilt trip.” Dimitri was getting angry now.

“Fine, but if your parents lose everything so will your siblings.” Hawthorn said smugly.

“Syd doesn’t live there anymore, Mia is moving out soon, and Christian is almost eighteen. The only one who’s in danger is Rose. But you know what, I’m pretty sure Mia is taking her with her when she moves. So yea, I don’t have to worry about them.”

Screenshot-4957

“Whatever man. She still can’t stay.”

“Come one man, just let her stay for a few days.” Dimitri was practically begging now. “If it doesn’t work out, I’ll take her somewhere else. Just give her a chance.”

“I don’t know man.”

Screenshot-4961

I decided that this was my cue. I was pretty self confident, I knew that I was hot. And usually guys can’t resist a pretty girl. It wouldn’t hurt to try.

“Hey.” I said, getting their attention.

“Dude, why didn’t you just tell me that she’s smoking hot?” Hawthorn whispered to Dimitri, thinking I couldn’t hear them. Dimitri shrugged.

Screenshot-4964

“I’m Jasmine.” I walked up to him and introduced myself.

“Hawthorn.” He smiled at me as his eyes swept over my body, briefly stopping to stare at my breasts. It made me feel uncomfortable, but I didn’t want to piss him off. He was still deciding if I could live with them or not.

Screenshot-4965

“She can stay.” He turned to Dimitri and spoke to him as if I weren’t there.”But,” He started, making me nervous. “She has to at least look like a part of society.”

“What? How is she gonna do that? It’s kinda obvious that she’s mixed.” Dimitri defiantly crossed his arms.

“Sunglasses.”

“Fine, but what do you mean ‘a part of society?” I asked.

“You need to get a job.”

I gulped. This can’t be good.
