Jasmine Fae Chapter 19: Life and Death

Screenshot-5637

“Be careful, Bud. Don’t go too far out.” Dimitri called out to Stone, who was playing in the water. I was a little nervous about letting him play in the waves, but Dimitri promised me that nothing would happen to him, since the both of us were only feet away. He was right obviously, but I couldn’t help but worry about my little boy.

Things were a little tense around here after the message from Dimitri’s father. His threats terrified me. The thought of everyone I loved being killed was haunted me. Even though Dimitri was positive his threats were empty, I wasn’t so convinced. There was no way for us to know for sure, but there was one way to prevent anything bad from happening. Dimitri wouldn’t tell me exactly what it was, all he told me was that a witch friend would be coming to visit us soon.

To distract ourselves, we tried to spend every second with Stone, or with each other. So far it was working.

Dimitri and I watched as the hyper little boy kicked and splashed around in the water. He’d been running around all day, making Dimi and I chase him. I was exhausted, I was amazed at how much energy my son seemed to have.

“I love you, Jazz.” Dimitri whispered in my ear without warning.

“I love you too, Dimi.” I gave him a confused smile. His proclamation came out of nowhere. He had a huge smile on his face, confusing me further. “What?”

“You just look so gorgeous in this lighting.”

“Thanks, you don’t look to bad yourself.” I joked, earning myself a small laugh.

“Marry me.” He whispered, I spun around to face him, unsure if I heard him right.

“What?”

“Marry me, Jasmine Tulip Fae.”

“We can’t get married, we can’t exactly sign any legal documents.” I chuckled. He was sounding completely insane right now.

“Doesn’t matter, we can have our own little ceremony, and call each other husband and wife. We don’t need a legal document for this.” He explained with a soft smile. But even if it wasn’t a real wedding, I still felt a bit uneasy. I never thought of myself as the marrying type, I guess I never thought I could commit to something like that. But this was Dimitri, the man I loved and the man I knew I wanted to spend my life with. So why did I feel so apprehensive about this?

“I-I don’t know Dimi.”

“What?”

“I don’t know, weddings make me nervous.” I admitted with a small, nervous laugh.

Screenshot-5642

“Then it won’t be a wedding, it’ll just be an exchanging of vows.”

“Now that is a lot less scary.” I smiled, as I extended my neck to kiss him. His lips curled into a smile as I did, and I couldn’t help but smile too.

“He’s so peaceful when he’s sleeping. It’s hard to believe he’s such a little terror.” I joked after Dimitri and I put Stone down for the night.

“Oh he’s not that bad. He’s just going through a phase.” He chuckled and pressed himself tightly against my back.

“Let’s hope so.”

Screenshot-5650

I could tell he rolled his eyes by the way his jaw clenched.

“Hey, don’t roll your eyes at me.” I scolded quietly.

“How the hell did you know that?” He asked, bewildered. This time it was my turn to roll my eyes.

“Doesn’t matter. Shouldn’t we get started on this ‘vow exchange’? It’s getting late, and I’m exhausted.”

“Yea, sure.”

Screenshot-5651

Dimitri took me out onto the deck. I shivered as we walked outside. Whether it was from the cold or from my nerves, I couldn’t tell. Either way I wanted to get this over with.

“You’re tense.” Dimitri pulled me close and pulled my chin close to his. “It’s alright, we don’t have to do this if you don’t want to.”

“No, it’s important to you. Therefore it’s important to me.” I squeezed his hand to assure him that this was something that I wanted too.

“Alright, I’ll go first then.”

“No, I wanna go first.”

“You sure?”

“Yea.”

Screenshot-5659

“If it weren’t for you, I’d have died many years ago. You’ve risked your life for me on more than one occasion, even though I never asked you too. You’ve always put me first, even if it meant losing everything and everyone you’ve ever loved. I have no idea how to repay you, I don’t think I’ll ever pay off that debt. But I want to try and make you the happiest man on earth, so tonight I’m going to do something I vowed I’d never do. I’m going to give you my hand in marriage.” I wiped a stray tear from my eye. Then, I realized I didn’t have a ring to give him. So I pretended to hold one up and slid the invisible band onto his finger. The two of us couldn’t help but giggle, even though we were both about to cry.

Screenshot-5663

“Jasmine, you mean the world to me. You’ve been my entire world for longer than you’ve even known. I’d do anything to keep you safe. I’d risk my life a billion times if it meant you could live another day. You, and Stone, mean everything to me. If I lost either of you, I don’t think I’d be able to survive. I love you Jasmine. You don’t have to try and make me the happiest man on earth, because just waking up next to you every single day already does.” He smiled at me, and slid a beautiful diamond ring onto my finger.

“Where did you get this?” I asked curiously.

“It was my grandmothers. I brought it with me when we left.”

“So you’ve been planning this since before we even got together?”

“Yea, pretty much.” He chuckled sheepishly.

Screenshot-5664

“You are such a dork.”

“Yea, but I’m your dork now.” We laughed. I wrapped my arms around him and pulled him close to me.

“I love you, Dimitri.”

“I love you too.” He smiled just before he kissed me.

Screenshot-5666

And even though we weren’t technically married, we still acted like newly weds.

“What do you mean they’re all gone?” President Todds screamed at Carson.

“I’m sorry, Bryce. But they’re all gone. All of them, even the distant cousins and family friends. None of them are there.” Carson explained. Bryce decided to capture my family after he aired the threat. I warned him, I knew that was a bad idea. But he wouldn’t listen.

“Dammit. Now what do we do?” He asked angrily.

“We could get all their pictures and post them on the news stations, just like with the mutt and Dimitri.” Christian offered.

“No, there’s too many of them. We need to focus on Dimitri and that thing he’s with.” He sighed and ran his hands over his beard. He then turned to me and glared.

Screenshot-5669

“This is all your fault. You suggested this, and now we’ve lost all of our leverage.” His voice didn’t even sound like him. His growling reminded me of the strange animals on the television.

“I-I’m sorry Sir. I didn’t think they could all escape so fast.” I gulped. Even though I warned him this would happen, he still blamed me. But I knew better than to talk back.

“I’m going to slit your throat, you piece of shit fairy.” He made the throat slitting gesture.

Screenshot-5671

“Dad, ease up a bit. She didn’t know. Why would anyone assume that an entire family could just up in leave without a trace in a day? It’s an easy mistake.”  Christian gave me a sympathetic look. President Todds was ruthless, we all knew that. And for some reason, Christian was trying to save me from his wrath.

“Shut it. She screwed this up, she must pay.”

Screenshot-5670

I gulped again. I screwed him over big time, and now I was probably going to die.

“Dimitri, are you sure this is a good idea?” I asked my husband as we sat at the table, waiting for the witch to come. He’d called her, and asked her to help us with this situation with my family.

“Positive. She’s going to help us.” He assured me just as the doorbell rang. I jumped a little, I’d never heard it before. We never got any visitors up here. “I’ll get it.” He rushed off to let our guest in.

Screenshot-5680

A few seconds later, Dimitri strolled back into the kitchen with an elderly woman in tow. I couldn’t help but clutch my chair tightly. Part of me knew she wasn’t human, but she looked so much like them it was hard for me not to fear her.

“Jasmine, this is Adrienne. Adrienne, this is my wife, Jasmine.”

“Hello dear. How’re you doing? This all must be so hard on you.” I expected a frail, soft voice from the woman but her voice was booming, but oddly comforting.

“I’m dealing, thank you.”

Screenshot-5682

Adrienne conjured a lamp out of nowhere, making both Dimitri and I gasp. She chuckled at our reactions as she set it onto the table.

“Alright, so I will use this lamp to see your family. It will tell me where they are, and if they’re alive or not.” She explained.

“Will we be able to see anything?” Dimitri wondered.

“No, but I’ll tell you what I see afterword.” She pressed her hands together and started chanting in a language I didn’t understand. It sounded like giberish to me. I was about to stop her, until the lap started to glow purple.

Screenshot-5683

“What’s it saying?” I couldn’t help but ask.

“It’s saying a lot of things. Your family is safe, all of them. Your cousins, grandparents, parents, even family friends have all gotten to safety.” She told me with a small smile.

“Where are they?”

“I can’t tell, there must be a spell, hiding their location from me.”

Screenshot-5684

“Is it saying anything else?” Dimitri questioned.

“Yes, it’s saying that a Fae named Ivy is in a lot of pain. It’s telling me she’s committed many crimes, and now she’s paying for it.” Her voice was pained. I didn’t share her unhappiness however, my sister was the one who betrayed my family and got them into this mess.

Not long after, she stopped the spell and the lap turned itself off. She waved her hand, and the lamp vanished as quickly as it appeared.

Screenshot-5686

“Thank you so much for your information, Adrienne, but I have one more think to ask.” Dimitri stopped her before she left.

“What do you need? I’m glad to help.”

“I need you to help us fake our deaths. If they think we’re dead, they’ll stop looking for Jasmine’s family and we can live without fear.” He asked quietly.

“Oh Dimitri, I can definitely fake your death. But, just your death. I can recreate your body no problem, but Jasmine’s mixed status keeps me from recreating her. There’s also the baby, I can’t recreate a pregnant woman.” She explained.

“Pregnant?” I whispered.

“Oh, did you not know? Sorry, dear.”

Screenshot-5691

No, I definitely didn’t know.

Jasmine Fae Chapter 18: Then There Were Three

*Ivy*

Screenshot-5555

“It’s been almost two years people, how have we not found them yet?” President Todds’ voice boomed through the small conference room. “My son isn’t that smart, he can’t hide from me like this.”

Screenshot-5557

After I graduated high school, I moved to Bridgeport. My idiotic sister had escaped from the facility, and they were looking for any possible leads they could get. When I told them I was her sister and I was willing to help capture her, they hired me on the spot despite me being Fae.

Now, it had been almost two years since my sister and President Todds’ son had escaped. We had no leads, no sightings, no anything. It was like they completely vanished off the planet.

Screenshot-5562

“Their boat might have capsized, Sir.” Christian, President Todds’ younger son, chimed in. After they disappeared, no one knew how they got away until I showed up. I told them how my sister left the Valley on the boat, and how I thought they must’ve escaped from here on it too. “We might not even have anything to search for.”

“We need to know for sure, Christian.” He spat at him for the hundredth time. They always had this conversation, every meeting.

Screenshot-5564

“Bryce, it’s been two years. They can’t possibly be alive still without a sighting. Their pictures are plastered on TV screens all over the world. There’s a five million dollar reward for the person that finds them. If anyone saw them, I doubt they’d turn down that possibility.” Carson explained calmly to Todds. Carson was the President of Starlight Shores, but he often flew over here for meetings with the council.

“No, they aren’t dead. I’m sure of it.” He sounded like he was trying to convince himself, rather than us. I had a feeling he didn’t want them to be dead. No matter what Dimitri did, he was still President Todds’ son. My guess was that he still had hope that he could change him.

Screenshot-5569

“Well if they aren’t dead, then why haven’t we found them yet?” Rockwell asked angrily. He was bitter, he was shot in the knee during their escape and hasn’t been able to walk right ever since.

“I don’t know, but obviously our method’s aren’t working. We need a new idea.” President Todds threw his fists down on one of the tables.

Screenshot-5573

That’s when I came up with an idea. My ideas weren’t always taken seriously here, but I had to try and convince them that I was committed.

“Well, wherever they are, they’re probably keeping tabs on everything, right? I mean if I were a fugitive, I’d want to know what the government was doing to try and find me, so I could stay one step ahead of them. If we air a message to them, threatening them in some kind of way, maybe they’ll turn themselves in.” I suggested. The best way to catch a criminal was to think like one.

“How can we be sure they’re watching?” Christian asked and crossed his arms. He was completely convinced they were dead, and got upset whenever we came up with new plans centered on them being alive. He also didn’t like me very much. Originally he tried to get me kicked off the council, no matter how many times his father insisted I was essential.

“We can’t, but it wouldn’t hurt to air something, right? If they see it, then we’ve got them. If they don’t, then no harm no foul.”

“She’s right, actually.” Carson chimed in, sounding shocked that someone of my occult could come up with such a brilliant idea. “Bryce, what do you think?”

Screenshot-5574

“I think it’s a good plan, but what could we threaten them with? If only we could get a hold of that child of hers…” He stroked his beard in thought.

“What about our family? My sister cares about them a lot more than I do. Threatening their lives would hurt her a lot more than it would hurt me.” I offered. Before I left for Bridgeport, I told my parents how I felt about everything. About F.R.O., about humans, about my sister. They were shocked, I made my mother cry and my sister punched me in the face. But I didn’t care, they meant nothing to me anymore. All that mattered was pleasing the humans.

“Can we do that?” One of the scientists asked.

“I can’t see why not.” I shrugged.

“Do we take them into custody, or fake the threat?” Carson asked me for my approval.

“Either way I don’t care. Do whatever you please, Sir.”

“I’ll have to think about it, but we’re definitely airing a threat.” President Todds grinned maliciously. I could feel the excitement in the room. This time we might get them, we’ll finally be able to punish them for what they’ve done. I couldn’t wait.

Beside’s keeping up with Stone, there wasn’t much for Dimitri and I to do. One day out of extreme boredom, I started to write. At first it started out as a way for me to vent, but as time went on I realized I wasn’t terrible at writing. So I started a book. Or more specifically, I started an auto biography. But I didn’t write it for publishing. I wrote it as a way to cope with what I’d been through. It was helping, and it was a great way to kill time while Stone was napping.

Screenshot-5584

“Momma?” Stone’s voice whispered from behind his pacifier. I sighed, he’d been climbing out of his crib lately when he should be napping. Dimitri suggested we stop putting him down for naps, but I didn’t think we should enable him like that. He was still a baby, he needed them.

“What’re you doing up?” I scolded. He shrunk back and hid behind his hands.

“I wanna see Dada.” He smiled innocently.

Screenshot-5585

I shut my laptop and swiveled my chair around to face my mischievous little toddler.

“Oh yea? You wanna see Daddy?” I asked, and he nodded excitedly. “How bad?”

Screenshot-5586

“So bad I could dawce!”  He yelled excitedly, then started to dance around our room. This was becoming routine, he’d come in here, dance and scream ‘la la la’ over and over until I took him downstairs to see Dimitri. At first it was slightly annoying, but now I played along because it was pretty adorable.

“Alright, that’s enough Bud.” I stopped his little dance rountine. “C’mon, let’s go see Daddy.” I swept him up into my arms and he giggled with delight.

Screenshot-5589

“Yay!” He squealed as I tickled him.

“You are a devious little boy, aren’t you?” I asked, and he smiled sheepishly at me. I couldn’t help but giggle.

Screenshot-5592

“Dada!” Stone screeched as we descended the stairs. Stone loved Dimitri, he was definitely a Daddy’s boy. I didn’t really mind, I was just glad Stone had a father figure in his life.

Screenshot-5593

Dimitri didn’t respond to Stone calling out for him. As I got closer to him, I realized something was wrong.

“Dimitri, is everything alright?” I asked. He didn’t answer me verbally, he just shook his head. I put Stone down on the ground and instructed him to go play. But in a true Stone fashion, he disobeyed and ran up to his dad.

Screenshot-5596

“Dada, don’ cwy.” He wrapped his little arm’s around Dimitri’s shin. “It’s otay.”

“Thanks, Bud.” He ruffled Stone’s hair and gave him a half-assed smile. “Now go play.”

“Otay!” He giggled and ran off to his toy box.

Screenshot-5597

“Babe, what’s wrong?” I asked when I plopped down next to him.

“Watch.” He instructed, after rewinding the TV.

Screenshot-5602....

“Hello, this is President Todds of Bridgeport. I have a message, but unless you are my son or the mutt he’s hiding with, then you can disregard this. Dimitri, as you know, we’ve been looking for you for almost two years now. All we want is the Mutt. If you give her to us, you will be free of all charges. I know you care for the thing, but is this really worth it? We have her family, if you don’t turn yourselves in within the next three months, we’re going to kill each one of them on national television. That may not mean anything to you, son. But it means something to that mutt. I’ll let you decide what to do, hopefully I will see both of you within the next three months. Thank you.” A man who claimed to be Dimitri’s father spoke to him from our tiny television screen. It was obvious he was, judging by Dimi’s reaction. I paused the TV when I noticed something, something I hoped I was seeing wrong.

Screenshot-5604

“Oh my god, that’s my sister.” I leaned in close to the TV to get a better look. I knew my family anywhere, and that was without a doubt my little sister.

“What?” He looked up at the screen with tears in his eyes.

“That’s Ivy, my little sister. What the hell is she doing there?” I asked with disbelief.

“She must be working with them, that must be how they found your family.”

“No. That can’t be. She was a good kid, there’s no way she could be on their side. I’m her sister for fucks sake!”

Screenshot-5607

I couldn’t stand the thought of my little sister turning against me and my family like this. Why would she do this to us? What were her motives? I couldn’t come up with a reasonable answer, and I don’t think I’ll ever understand.

“Shh, I’m here Jazz.” Dimitri held me as I cried in his arms.

“What’re we gonna do? We can’t turn ourselves in, not while Stone is so young. But we also can’t just let my family die.”

Screenshot-5612

“Hey, don’t worry. I’ll figure something out, alright? I promise, no one is gonna die and no one is turning themselves in.” Dimitri looked me in the eye and promised.

“How, what can you do?”

“Just trust me, alright? I can fix this.”

Screenshot-5617

“I trust you.” I sighed. Even though I trusted him, I still worried. There was too much on the line right now, it was hard to just accept that he’d take care of it. But I had to let him, I had no way of doing it on my own.

“Good. Now, let’s watch something a little happier, yea?” He pulled me into a quick kiss and turned to Stone who was blissfully unaware of everything that had been happening. “Hey Bud, wanna watch some TV?”

“Yea Dada!” He grabbed his toy monster and crawled over to us.

Screenshot-5620

We all sat on the floor and watched one of Stone’s kid shows. He was totally engrossed in the show, while Dimitri and I were barely paying attention.

“He’s so perfect, don’t you agree?” Dimitri gave me a small smile.

“For the most part, yea I guess.” I chucked. Dimitri playfully smacked my leg. “Maybe I should turn myself in.” I whispered quietly. Right now, it seemed like the best option.

“What? I thought we discussed this. Why would you wanna do that?”

“Well, if I do that, the two of you will be in the clear. They’ll stop looking for you, and you guys can live in peace. He’s young, if I do it now he won’t remember me, it won’t hurt him as much as if I waited.”

“No.” He scolded. “You can’t. He needs you. I need you.” He placed his hand on my knee and gave me a kiss.

“Babe, you guys could live a normal life. You can get a job, he can go to school and make friends. You could get married, even have more kids. It’s the best option.” I suggested.

“No, no. You’re the only person I want to spend my life with. You are not leaving us.”

“Fine.” I laid back against the couch and sighed. This discussion was not over.

After Ivy pulled her stupid little stunt, my parents were devastated. My mom quit her job, my dad barely ever even left their room. Neither of them had been doing well, especially with the warrant out on my eldest sister’s head. Before my twin left I had plans for my life. I was going to move out, get a house with a few friends of mine. I was going to work at the private investigator firm in town, it operates out of the same building as F.R.O. But all my plans were put on hold for the time being while my parents recovered.

We spent a lot of time together recently. They rarely let me out of their sight. Not that I blamed them, they’ve already lost two daughters. I was a little frustrated, I was young and I wanted to have fun. But my stupid twin took that from me. She took everything from me. She took away my ability to trust people. Ivy was the one person in my life I thought I could trust, but I was wrong. All this time, she wanted to please the humans. All this time she was against us. After she left, I shut everyone but my parents out. I couldn’t trust anyone.

Screenshot-5626....

My parent’s and I were sitting at home watching TV. They had on Uncle Maple’s latest movie, but I was paying more attention to my laptop than the television. Things were quiet, until their program was interrupted with breaking news.

A man appeared on the screen. He was a vampire, and he claimed to be the president of Bridgeport. The place my sister moved to, the place my older sister ended up.  My head shot up to the screen at the mention of the town. My eyes instantly fell onto a dark purple figure behind him. Ivy.

The man spoke to Jasmine and a man named Dimitri. Over the years, we learned that this man broke my sister out of the facility and now they were no where to be found. The man then said something that peaked my interest even more. He mentioned us, Jasmine’s family. He said he had us, but that was obviously a bluff. I glanced nervously over at my father. Even though his mouth was closed I could tell he was clenching his teeth.

Then the man threatened to kill us if my sister and this man didn’t turn themselves in within the next three months.

Screenshot-5630

“Dad, do you think…” I jumped off the floor in shock. He didn’t answer, he just stared intently at the screen. My mind was racing, they were obviously lying about holding us, but what if they were coming for us? Were they really going to kill us, on national television? My mind was racing with questions, but I didn’t ask any of them in fear of setting off my mother.

Screenshot-5631

“No.” My mom whispered as she too got up. “This can’t be happening, right? This has to be some kind of sick joke.” She was hysterical. I knew better than to try and comfort her, last time she freaked out and accidentally elbowed me in the face.

Nobody said anything as the message ended and the movie returned to their screen.

Screenshot-5633

“Pack a bag, both of you.” My dad demanded in a gruff voice I’ve never heard him use before.

“Where are w-” I started to question him, but he shot me a glare that could kill me.

“Not now Iris. Just pack a bag, I need to make some calls.” He pulled his cellphone out and bounded up the stairs, without a doubt to go pack a bag.

Screenshot-5634

I glanced around the living room. If we were leaving tonight, there was a chance we’d never come back here. I grew up in this house, I’d lived there my entire life. It was a strange feeling, to know that this was the last time you’d be seeing such familiar sights.

But right now was not the time for nostalgia. I snapped out of it, and nudged Mom. The two of us followed my father upstairs to collect some belongings. My stomach sunk as I finally realized who must be behind this all. This was without a doubt all my twin sister’s idea.

Jasmine Fae Chapter 13: The Real Monsters

A/N Sorry this chapter took so long, I’ve been a little uninspired lately. But I was able to upload Ivy and Jasmine to the exchange, and I reuploaded River. You can find the links on the Download a Fae Heir/Heiress page! Thanks for the reads everyone!

Screenshot-5310

The majority of the first few days, I was completely ignored. They’d occasionally give me food or water, but other than that all I did was sit in the corner of the room and watch them. It wasn’t very interesting, whenever they needed to talk about me they’d leave the room. I only ever saw them fiddling with the machines. It was boring, but I knew this wouldn’t last long.

Screenshot-5312

“Aye, Mutt, come on.” The female human scientist called for me. This was exactly what I was afraid of. I was going to be the subject of the experiments today, instead of just samples of my DNA. I gulped as I pulled myself off the floor and headed for the opening in the cage.

I followed her to a strange machine in the corner of the room.

Screenshot-5314

“Sit.” She directed. I obliged, after hearing about Uncle Basil’s experience with scientists, I didn’t want to risk anything. Being tested was painful enough without physical injuries.

I remember sitting through F.R.O. meetings, listening to Uncle Basil tell his stories about his time with the scientists. I always thought he was exaggerating, I never thought anyone could be that cruel. But since I was caught, I knew he wasn’t and I felt awful about doubting him.

Screenshot-5315

I leaned back in the chair and tried to relax. My hands were shaking, I was terrified this was going to hurt. Asking if it would hurt would be a terrible idea, so I kept my mouth shut while the woman pressed buttons on the machine.

Screenshot-5319

She pulled the hood of the machine over my head and almost immediately little bolts of electricity struck me. It was painful, I gripped the arm rests of the chair to keep myself from screaming.

Screenshot-5322

The woman either didn’t notice my pain or chose to ignore it. She just took notes on her clipboard, occasionally glancing at the screen on the machine. I don’t know what happened, but I could feel my body start to go limp. My grip loosened, my arms fell from the rests.

The scientist then pushed a few more buttons of the machine, and it whirled to a stop. She lifted the hood and I tried to pull myself up, but I was weak. The woman grabbed my arm and roughly pulled me off the chair.

Screenshot-5330

She dragged me back over to my cage. She shoved me into the cage, I stumbled slightly but I didn’t fall.

“Don’t get too comfortable, we’re not done with you.” She said, before spinning on her heel and leaving.

Screenshot-5331

I staggered over to my bed and pulled my knees to my chest. I felt dizzy and nauseous. I couldn’t believe this was actually happening to me. Things like this only happened in nightmares.

I cried, I don’t know how long it had been since the woman shocked me with the machine. It could’ve been minutes, or it could’ve been hours. I wasn’t sure, everything was a blur.

Screenshot-5334

That’s when I saw him. An unfamiliar movement from the hallway caught my eye, and I looked up just in time to catch a glimpse. I couldn’t be certain, but I was almost positive the person who walked by was Dimitri. Maybe I wasn’t going to die here after all. I could only hope.

*Dimitri*

Screenshot-5332

Since I was working in the building that day, I couldn’t help but walk past the room that held Jasmine. I missed her, I wanted her to be back home with me. As I walked past the room, I couldn’t help but glance in there. She was sitting on her bed, her face in her hands. From the few seconds I glanced at her, I could tell she was crying.

Screenshot-5338

I walked to the end of the hallway and sat against the wall. It was one thing to imagine what Jasmine was going through, it was an entirely different thing to actually see it. My chest felt tight and I thought I would vomit. This was my fault. I was the one who got her the job at the club. I was the one who didn’t get her out of there when she was in danger.

This entire thing was my fault. I shouldn’t have even brought her to my house the day she arrived. I should’ve shoved her back into her boat and forced her to go home. Even though I knew it wasn’t safe for her here I let her stay. All because I had a stupid little crush on her. Now my crush was costing her her life.

Screenshot-5340

How could I be so selfish? Now because of me, she was getting tortured and questioned. I couldn’t let this continue anymore. My original plan was to take over for my father and change the laws to make things more Fae friendly. It wouldn’t change things right away, but it would be a start. But it was too late for that. Jasmine would die soon if I didn’t do something, they’d test her to death. I had to act fast.

That’s when I came up with my plan. It was risky, people could die, but I needed to get her out of here. She didn’t deserve this, these people were the real monsters here. They were the ones who should be locked up, who should be killed. I could lose my life too, but it was worth it to save her. After all, it was my fault she was in there. Dying for her safety is the least I could do.

“Our sources confirmed that the supernatural being caught in Bridgeport is a hybrid. They say it’s half-vampire and half-fairy. We haven’t been able to get any footage, they are keeping it in a high security science facility, only staff are allowed inside. Hopefully there will be more updates on this situation soon. Back to you, Andrew.”

My family had been watching the news, a town called Bridgeport captured someone matching the description of my sister. Ever since she left so many months ago, we haven’t heard anything from her. Apparently she landed in another experiment town, and got herself captured.

Screenshot-5343

My parents were absolutely devastated. Neither of them had wanted her to go on this expedition. But my sister was stubborn, and suicidal, so there was no stopping her.

“Oh River, I-I can’t believe our baby is locked up. I c-can’t even imagine the pain she’s g-going through, a-after what Basil told us.” My mom sobbed into my dad’s shoulder.

“Shh, it might not even be her. There’s no way to know for sure.” My dad tried to comfort her, but I could tell even he didn’t believe what he was saying. We all knew it was Jazz in that science facility.

Screenshot-5347

My twin sister, Iris hadn’t said anything throughout this whole ordeal. She was usually a very bubbly girl, always chatting or texting someone about something. Right now, she was crying. I can’t remember the last time my sister cried. She hadn’t even cried when Jazz left.

Screenshot-5345

I wasn’t crying or questioning the situation. Instead, I was annoyed. Why should we give a crap about what my idiotic sister got herself into? She was the one who left, she was the one who went against what the humans wanted for us.

Ever since I was little, I never understood my family. I never really got why they were so against humans, when all they did was give us shelter. Sure, they were cruel to some of us at one point, but they weren’t anymore. At least not to the people who didn’t try and escape. Things for us could be a lot worse, I don’t think my family realizes that. Here, we can’t get hurt by any other supernatural beings. It’s just us.

The humans knew what was best for us. They were doing this to protect us, if we were still on our own we could’ve been torn apart by wolves or djinn by now. My family never realized how much the humans have helped us. They’ve just been dwelling on the past.

Screenshot-5349

I couldn’t take it anymore. I couldn’t handle my family crying over this idiot. She wasn’t our problem anymore. We should just live our lives, without wanting to break free from the humans. That’s what they want for us, they want us to be happy.

I stormed out of the room, my families sobbing was becoming too much. They didn’t even notice me leave, they were all too wrapped up in their own grief. I didn’t mind, they’ve never really paid much attention to me. I’ve always felt like they didn’t care about me. Maybe that’s why I’ve always been so interested in human culture, because they are the ones who really care about me.

I glared at my parents as I walked past them. I knew one day, I’d be working alongside the humans. I wanted to help them catch people like my parents, people who were looking to rebel, and punish them.

I couldn’t wait until my family got what they deserved.

Jasmine Fae Chapter 5: Mission Impossible

Screenshot-4818

“Thanks for gathering on such short notice.” My parents stood at the front of the room. They called an emergency F.R.O. meeting with just a few board members.

“Let’s jump right in, Hero, would you start us off?” My mom gestured to our old family friend.

Screenshot-4823

“Well, as you all know, my men and I have been working on disarming the trap in the ocean so we can send people out. So far, we’ve only been able to disarm it for a few minutes at most. But yesterday, we were able to disarm it for forty-five minutes.”

“What does this mean?” Iris asked excitedly.

Screenshot-4836

“This mean that we’ll be able to send someone out there.” Grandma explained.

“This is huge.” Grandpa exclaimed.

“Yes, but are we sure we’re ready for this? We don’t know what’s out there. Sending someone out there could be a suicide mission.”

Screenshot-4828

“I’ll do it.” I blurted out. It was perfect, I needed to get out of this place. I also loved F.R.O., so why not volunteer for this?

“Jasmine, we can’t let you do this.” My grandma sounded worried.

“I’m turning eighteen next month, there’s not really anything you can do to stop me.” I gave her a tight smile. I get that she was worried, but I had to make my own decisions.

Screenshot-4830

“Sweetheart, I think you should think about this. This is a huge decision, you should at least take a few days to think it over.” My grandpa suggested.

“No, I’ve made up my mind. I’m volunteering.” I turned to Hero. “What do I have to do and when do I leave?”

He didn’t answer me and looked at my dad.

Screenshot-4841

“Jazzy, I can’t let you do this.” My dad said.

“You can’t really stop me.” I crossed my arms defiantly.

“Look, I can’t let you go on a suicide mission, Jasmine. What kind of father would I be if I let my daughter do something so dangerous?”

Screenshot-4838

“You don’t have to let me, I’m going whether or not you ‘let’ me. This is something I want to do, so I’m gonna do it.”

“This isn’t something you want to do.” My dad shook his head sadly.

“How do you know what I want?”

Screenshot-4842

My dad looked over at my mom. She smiled sadly at him, and nodded slightly.

“Fine, we won’t try and stop you,” She said, “But just think about this, okay?”

“I’ve thought about it, Mom.”

I looked around the room. Everyone was giving me looks of pity. I didn’t deserve their pity. I did something awful, and I needed to be punished for it. Dying slowly and painfully on a boat in the middle of the ocean sounded ideal.

Screenshot-4845

“I don’t need your pity.” I stood up and glared at them, then turned to Hero. “Call me, tell me what I have to do, and I’ll do it.”

I left the room without another word.

——–

Screenshot-4847

“So you’re really gonna do this?” I met up with Venus, Ash and my sisters after they got out of school the next day. I hadn’t been back at school since what happened, and I wasn’t going too. But at least I was actually leaving the house.

“Yea. I leave a few days after my birthday.” Hero and I had talked on the phone, and he gave me all the details. He’d be teaching me how to drive the boat in a few days.

“So, after that I’m never gonna see you again?” She asked sadly. I hated all the sadness surrounding this. I was doing a good thing.

Screenshot-4849

“I guess.”

“Have you told Ash?” I shook my head. “You should probably tell him. How do you think he’s gonna take it?”

“I don’t know, I hope he’ll be happy for me.”

“What? Why would he be happy about this? He’s probably never gonna see you again and you expect him to be happy?”

“Yea, but he’ll understand. We both love F.R.O. and I know he’d do the same thing if he could.”

Screenshot-4848

“Maybe he should go with you.” She suggested.

“No, this is something I have to do on my own.”

She sighed. “I’m really gonna miss you, Jazz.”

“I’m sorry.”

Screenshot-4853

“I hope you come back someday.”

“That doesn’t seem likely. I’ll probably die out there.”

She sighed again, and shook her head. “Whatever. Maybe you should go talk to Ash.”

Screenshot-4854

I could tell she was upset with me. But it didn’t matter, I’d be out of here soon, and it’ll be easier on her if she hates me when I go.

“Yea, good idea.”

Screenshot-4855

I approached him excitedly, I wanted him to think of this as a good thing, like I did.

“Hey babe, guess what.”

“What?”

“I’m going on a mission in about a month!” I smiled widely at him.

Screenshot-4856

He took my hands in his. “Oh my god, that’s amazing! What kind of mission is it?”

“An expeditionary one. They’ve figured out how to disarm the ocean traps long enough for me to get past them, and then I just explore the ocean, hopefully finding an island or another city.” His smile fell.

“Babe, that sounds dangerous.”

“Don’t worry. I’ll be fine. And besides, you and I both know I would die for this organization.”

“I know, I just don’t wanna lose you.” He sighed.

“Hey, we’ve still got a month.”

“Yea, but then what?”

Screenshot-4858

I took him in my arms and kissed him. “Let’s cross that bridge when we get to it, okay?”

“Okay.” He smiled. “I’m proud of you, babe.”

“Thanks. I’m glad, everyone else is trying to talk me out of this.”

“I know better, you’re stubborn and you’re dedicated, there’s no stopping you.”

“Thanks.”

“You’re welcome.” He grabbed my hand and started pulling me away. “I’m gonna win you something, so you can take it with you on your mission and if you miss me, you can just look at it and remember me.”

“You are such a sap.” I joked.

Screenshot-4860

He led me to the claw machine game. He wasn’t very good at the game, but I cheered him on anyway.

Screenshot-4861

To my surprise, he actually won me something. It was a tiny, plastic little animal. He grabbed it from the little slot and handed it to me.

“So you’ll always remember me.”

“Thanks.” I couldn’t help but smile.

Screenshot-4862

“I promise I’ll keep it with me all the time.”

“Good.”

“I’ll miss you.”

“I’ll miss you too.” He said. I gave him a small kiss and left the arcade. It was getting late, and I know he was hurting, and I didn’t want to make it worse.

 ———

Screenshot-4886

One month passed a lot faster than I thought it would. My birthday came and went, and now it was time for me to leave. I went around the other day, saying goodbye to all my friends and family. I didn’t want a lot of people at the beach saying goodbye.

Screenshot-4887

But still, my family showed up to see me off. I went down the line and said goodbye to all of them. First up were my grandparents.

“Oh Jazz, we’re gonna miss you.” My grandpa spoke sadly.

“I’ll miss you guys too.”

“Please, don’t let this be the last time I see you.” Grandma was about to cry, I’ve never seen her cry in my life. It was a weird feeling.

“I’ll try.” I lied. I knew I was gonna die out there, I only had a months worth of food, I doubt I’d be able to find any place before I die.

Screenshot-4888

Next up was Venus. She looked a lot different, her mom got her extensions and a new wardrobe for her eighteenth birthday. It was like I didn’t even know her anymore.

“Be careful, okay?” She said awkwardly. Things between us got weird after I volunteered to do this. I didn’t like leaving on a bad note with her, but I didn’t really have a choice.

“I will.” I lied again, lying to them would make me leaving easier.

Screenshot-4890

My parents were next, and they were the ones I was most worried about.

“I really wish you weren’t doing this.” My father crossed his arms.

“I’m sorry.” I didn’t know what else to say. What do you say when you’re leaving the two people who raised you? After a few seconds of silence, I finally choked out a small “Thank you.”

My father nodded slightly, and I nodded back. There wasn’t anything else to say.

Screenshot-4893

“Why do I have to lose everyone I’ve ever loved?” I heard my mom whisper to my dad, barely audible over the crashing of the waves. I felt my heart break, I hadn’t even thought about how my mom lost her parents and her husband during a mission. She also lost her sister, and now she was about to lose one of her daughters. I swallowed my tears and moved on to my sisters.

“You guys be good, okay?”

“We will, you be good too.” Iris smiled sadly at me. I worried about her, she didn’t have very good judgement. Hell, she was considering dating Sage until I told her that he was Venus’s ex. I just hoped she wouldn’t get into any serious crap after I left.

“I’ll miss you.” Ivy whispered.

“You too kiddo.”

Screenshot-4896

Ash was the last person in line. As soon as I saw him, I couldn’t help but kiss him.

“I love you Jazz.”

“I love you too.”

“Don’t forget me, okay?” He asked, his eyes brimming with tears. I felt horrible for hurting him, but I’d feel even worse if I stayed.

“I could never.”

I kissed him one last time before climbing into my boat.

Screenshot-4898

I sped off into the vast ocean, never looking back.

Jasmine Fae Chapter 3: Red Hot

A/N Sorry for the wait on this chapter, I wish I had a valid excuse but I don’t. I got way too into Supernatural and I’ve been watching it obsessively instead of playing sims. But I managed to pull myself away long enough to get a chapter put together. Thanks for waiting!

Screenshot-4709

Mom and Dad planned a huge party for Ivy and Iris’s birthday. They were turning fourteen, they were gonna be starting high school soon. They were both really excited, they couldn’t wait to be able to do older kid things.

My parents were sad that their youngest kids were getting older, so they decided to throw a huge party with all of the family. When I say all of the family, I mean all of them.

Screenshot-4698

The first ones to arrive were Aunt Fern and Uncle Palm. They had just had a new baby, a little boy named Ficus. The middle child, Periwinkle was becoming a handful, just like Venus. But that didn’t make Venus like him any more.

Screenshot-4700

The second ones to arrive were Aunt Missy and Aunt Amber. They weren’t officially married, they said they didn’t need to. They also didn’t have any children, but they were happy with just the two of them.

Screenshot-4704

The next to arrive was Uncle Dill and Aunt Alyssum. Alyssum was Dill’s third wife, he divorced his first wife before I was born, married his second wife soon after, divorced her a few years later, then married again. Alyssum was Aunt Fern’s half-sister, which made the whole thing a little strange. They weren’t exactly my favorite relatives.

Screenshot-4706

Papa was the next to show up. We didn’t see him often, he was involved in some sketchy stuff but Dad still wanted us to have a relationship with him. He never remarried after his wife left him, but I know he’s been dating around.

Screenshot-4702

Uncle Carrot and Uncle Maple showed up soon after. They were probably the most famous couple in our family. Maple was a famous television actor, and Carrot was a star athlete. Iris looked up to him, she was obsessed with sports and she wanted to be just like him.

Screenshot-4708

Last but certainly not least, my favorite relatives arrived. Grandma and Grandpa were the coolest people I’ve ever met. Grandpa was a rockstar, he still sold out shows every weekend. Grandma had retired from music, but she still drove her motorcycle everywhere. That’s pretty bad-ass for a woman approaching sixty.

Uncle Basil was pretty cool too. He was actually my great-uncle, but it was just easier to call him uncle. He was an author, he wrote about his times with the scientists and how they fixed his hearing. He also still volunteered for experiments, so he could steal our old texts from the scientists.

My cousin Aster was a tough guy. His mom recently died, Aunt Poppy was a drug addict and she overdosed a few months ago. He wasn’t too affected by it, his mom abandoned him when he was a toddler and he’d lived with our grandparents his whole life. He spoke to her probably ten times in his life, but still it had to have been hard on him.

Screenshot-4717

We all had to gather in the backyard, since the house would probably explode if we tried to fit everyone in there. My sister’s were anxious to get into their teens, so we started almost immediately after everyone arrived.

Screenshot-4720

Ivy went first, since she was born first. I also think she wanted to go first so she could get this over with. She hated being outside, and she hated being surrounded by people, so this was pretty much hell for her. But she was excited to be a teenager, so she didn’t complain.

Screenshot-4731

Iris went right after. She was ever more excited than Ivy. High school for her meant sports, and she couldn’t wait.

Screenshot-4736

Even though they were twins, they honestly couldn’t be any different. Ivy was even more shut in now that she was a teen, all she wanted to do was curl up with a book and ignore everyone. Iris on the other hand, only got more social. As soon as she finished her transformation she was texting someone. She was like a little butterfly.

But even though they were polar opposites, they were the best of friends. They were practically inseparable at home, I just hope they can keep that bond throughout high school.

Screenshot-4738

After cake, everyone just started talking and hanging out. It was nice to have all my family together, I don’t think we’ve all been together at once like this.

“Hey babe, having fun?” I asked Ash, the girls let me invite one person, and since Venus was already a relative I decided on Ash. He had to meet my family eventually, why not get it all done in one shot?

“Yea, Your family is awesome! Why didn’t you tell me your uncles are Maple and Carrot Reyna? They’re like the two coolest guys ever.” He told me excitedly. I laughed, I never took him as the kind of person who’d get star-struck.

Screenshot-4739

“It never came up.” I teased. “So, you like my family?”

“Yea, they’re a little nuts but all great families are.” He smiled. He was right, we were pretty nuts.

“My parents seem to like you.” My parents weren’t really strict about boys, so I wasn’t surprised when they told me they really liked him.

Screenshot-4741

“That’s good.” He took my hands in his and smiled at me. “Jazz, I know we’ve only been dating a few weeks, but I feel like we really get each other, and well, I’m in love with you.”

“Wow, that was unexpected.”

“Sorry. Did that make you uncomfortable?”

“No, of course not. I thought you’d be freaked out by my family, I didn’t expect you to like them, and I didn’t expect you to say that you love me after meeting them.” I said with a laugh.

“Oh, good.”

Screenshot-4743

“Oh, and just so you know, I love you too.”

———-

Screenshot-4745

The party lasted for a few hours, but before long it was time for everyone to leave. Me, Iris, Ivy and Ash decided to hang out here for a while, we had nothing better to do for the rest of the day.

We tried to get Venus to hang out with us, but she hasn’t been herself lately. With the abortion, the break up, and her new little brother, she was under a lot of stress. I’m hoping that she’ll bounce back soon, especially after I confront Cherry next week. Maybe after I put her in her place, Venus will feel a little better.

Screenshot-4748

But right now I was gonna talk to my sisters about high-school.

“So guys, you excited for high school? I asked.

“Hell yea.” Iris cheers from the floor.  “I can’t wait to enter tournaments, it’s gonna be awesome!” Since our school was the only one in town, we didn’t have a rival school to play team sports against. So our school did single-person sports, and held tournaments every five weeks.

“Yea, of course you will. You’re more of a sports freak than Uncle Carrot.” I joked. “What about you Ivy?”

Screenshot-4749

“Well, I’m looking forward to the library. I hear they’ve got thousands of books there.” I cocked an eyebrow.

“Is that it?”

“Yea, and I guess I’m excited that I’m finally old enough to start sitting in on F.R.O. meetings.”

“Oh yea, that’s gotta be cool.” Ash said. He knew about F.R.O., but he was too young to join. The only reason we were allowed in the meetings was because our parents ran the entire organization. And because one of us would be taking on the leadership role in a few years.

Screenshot-4752

“I can’t wait until you’re old enough to join, it’s gonna be so awesome.” I scooted closer to him.

“Me either. Maybe one day we could go on a mission together.”

“Mmm, you know I love it when you talk about missions.” I half-moaned, making Iris make a fake puking noise.

“God Jazz, I never expected you to be the love-y type.” She joked. I threw a candy wrapper at her.

“Shut up.” I pouted, and she stuck her tongue out at me.

Maybe now that my sisters are older, we could actually be friends.

———-

Screenshot-4757

“You okay V?” I asked my cousin as we walked into school a few days later. She’d only been back to school a few times since what happened.

“I guess. I just wanna get this over with.”

“Hey, isn’t that your sister?” Ash whispered quietly to me, and pointed over to the corner where Sage’s locker was.

Screenshot-4758

“Holy crap I think it is.” I whispered back. Iris was standing at Sage’s locker, and it looked like she was flirting with him.

“Shit.” He cursed under his breath.

“I’ll deal with that later. I’ve got someone else I’ve gotta deal with right now.” I clenched my fists and made my way over to Cherry.

Screenshot-4761

“Hey Cherry, can you stop sucking face for a second? We need to talk.”

“Go away Mutt, can’t you see I’m busy?” She pulled away from Rye and glared at me.

“I don’t really give a shit.”

Screenshot-4762

“What?” She snapped, and pushed Rye off her. He walked away, and called his little jock friend to follow him.

“What is wrong with you?” I knew this wasn’t going to end well, but I didn’t care.

“What’s wrong with me? Haven’t you looked in the mirror? I’m not the weird Mutt girl.” She sneered.

“Screw you. Why are you always such a bitch to everyone?”

Screenshot-4763

“I’m not a bitch, I’m just giving you what you deserve.”

“I don’t really care what you do to me. You can call me names and whatever the hell you want, but why did you have to do such a terrible thing to Venus?”

“Aw, your cuzzie needs you to stand up for her? That’s so sad.” She laughed, and so did her little side-kick.

Screenshot-4764

“Listen, all I want is two things. One, I want you to leave Venus alone. Two, I wanna know why you torment me so much. I haven’t done anything wrong, and there’s no reason you should be messing with me at all.”

“You are the reason, you filthy little mutt.” I could feel my blood start to boil. She was really pissing me off.

“All I want is an explanation, then you can continue to give me all the shit you want.” I was pushing her, because I knew there had to be a reason for her to be doing this.

“I already told you. God, is your little hybrid brain that tiny?”

I don’t know what happened. I felt a huge rush of something over my body, it felt like a electrical shock, but like in a wave.

Screenshot-4765

All I saw was red and Cherry’s snobby little face cowering against a locker. I had my arm pinned against her neck, I don’t remember how it got there though.

“Tell me.” A voice growled. It sounded so savage and barbaric, but I soon realized it was my voice.

That snapped me out of it. I took a step back, removing my arm from her neck. She fell to the floor, and the red light vanished.

“Oh my god, Cherry.” I was freaking out. I was terrified I might’ve hurt her.

I held my hand out to help her off the floor. She pulled herself up, ignoring my hand.

Screenshot-4771

She stood in front of me with a blank expression on her face.

“I’m so sorry, are you okay?” I asked, but she ignored me.

“There is a reason I tease you.” She admitted, but her voice sounded monotonous, and I realized what I had done. My mom had told me about it when she was teaching me about fairy powers. I had put her into a truth trance.

“My mother had an affair with a fairy when I was six.” I was wracking my brain, trying to remember how to stop this. A crowd had gathered around us, and I had a feeling this wasn’t something she wanted people to know.

“She got pregnant, even though she was so careful. She tried to play it off as my father’s baby. But her plan was ruined when the baby came out with sparkles. But on closer inspection, they realized the little boy was also a vampire.”

I was shocked, I thought I was the only hybrid to ever exist. As soon as she said that, everyone started to whisper.

Screenshot-4773

Despite my best efforts to reverse the trance, Cherry was still talking.

“They decided not to let anyone know, and tell them the baby was a still born. They took the baby deep into the forest, and threw him into the electric field that surrounds the Valley. They couldn’t stand the thought of being outcasts. I torment you, because I’m jealous of you. I’m angry that you got to live, and my little brother didn’t.”

Everyone silenced. No one knew what to say.

Cherry broke out of her trance soon after she finished. I’ll never forget the way she looked at me. Her expression was filled with terror and sadness. She ran off crying after realized everyone was staring at her.

I couldn’t believe what I had done.

Generation 3: Prologue

Screenshot-4095

Growing up I spent a lot of time in the lobby of HQ. My parents were the leaders of F.R.O., an organization whose main goal is to break away from the scientists, and restore our family back into power.

Our organization was important. The scientists let us live normal lives in the Valley, but no one could leave and no one could enter. It was like we were trapped in a bubble. Not a lot of people cared, they had food, shelter, a job and friends. They didn’t want to escape the scientists and become our own leaders. They were cowards, they didn’t want to fight for something important.

Screenshot-4210

I was thankful that my family wasn’t like that. I was glad that we were willing to fight for our freedom.

Speaking of my family, after the twins were born, we didn’t spend as much time at HQ as we used to. My parents had their hands full with them, but that didn’t mean they put F.R.O. on hold. They still took us there once a week even though getting the twins dressed and ready took up the majority of our mornings.

Screenshot-4294

I wasn’t very close with my little sisters. Sure, I helped take care of them whenever my parents asked, but that didn’t mean we were besties. They liked to keep to each other, they had a special bond that I didn’t share with them. I was a little disappointed, it would’ve been nice to be close with them, but if they didn’t want that then I wasn’t going to force it.

The only times we actually played together was at HQ. The only toy there was the block table, our only choices were play with that or be bored. So the three of us would build towers and stuff while we waited for their meetings to end.

Screenshot-4301

I didn’t mind not being close to Iris and Ivy, I never really connected with them like I did with my cousin, Venus. Venus lived across the street from us our whole lives, and she was at our house practically every day. She and I looked more like sisters than my sisters and I did.

Venus was an only child until very recently, when Aunt Fern gave birth to a little boy named Periwinkle. He was adorable, but he bugged the crap out of Venus. She was used to all of her parents attention, and when the new baby came she got angry and started staying at our place more and more. Not that we minded. I loved having her around.

Screenshot-4306

When I got to high school, Venus introduced me to her group of friends. The group consisted of two guys, Venus’s boyfriend Sage Ziegler and his best friend Ash Shorter. The two of them were the best of friends, besides the fact they had complete opposite personalities. Sage was loud and rambunctious. He’d do anything to get a laugh and was pretty attention seeking. Ash on the other hand was quiet, he rarely ever talked to anyone besides Sage.

I was really glad I had my cousin. School was hard for me, I was the only mixed occult in existence so I got teased a lot. I didn’t really care, It just screwed with my ability to make friends. No one wanted to hang out with the Mutt, that’s their affectionate nick-name for me. If it weren’t for Venus, I’d probably be completely alone at school.

Screenshot-4307

The four of us usually hung out after school too. The Moonlight Arcade was our usual hang out spot. It was awesome, it had bowling lanes, a bunch of arcade games, a dance floor, a dj table, and a computer room. It was the perfect place to spend our nights and weekends.

Right now, Venus and I were waiting for the boys to finish their basketball shooting game. They were in a fierce competition, neither of them wanting to lose to the other.

Screenshot-4311

“So when do they usually finish?” I asked Venus. They’d been playing for a while now, and I wanted to start bowling.

“They’ll finish soon. From what I can see, it looks like Ash is winning.” She laughed, leaning back in her chair to get a better look at their scores.

“Who usually wins?”

Screenshot-4310

“Ash. He’s pretty athletic, you can’t tell from looking at him though. He’s pretty scrawny.”

“He’s not that scrawny.” I said, leaning over to get a better look.

“Checking him out, are we?” She giggled, making me blush. I hated blushing.

“No, I was just seeing if he was scrawny or not.”

“Oh come on. He’s cute, you can’t deny that.” She wiggled her eyebrows and laughed again.

Screenshot-4315

“I mean, I guess.”

“You should ask him out.”

“You just want someone to double date with.” I sighed.

“Yea, but I think you guys would make a great couple. He’s pretty chill and you’re a total whack job, I think you’ll balance each other out perfectly.”

“You suck.” I laughed, and kicked her shin under the table.

Screenshot-4314

“But seriously, I barely even know him. He barely ever talks to me. Why would I ask out a guy I barely know?”

“Then get to know him! You guys can bowl together tonight instead of you and me.”

“Alright, fine.” Honestly, I was pretty nervous. I’ve only been bowling a few times, and I wasn’t that great at it. I was afraid I’d make a fool out of myself in front of Ash.

“Hey Babe, wrap it up. You and I are bowling together.” Venus called out to Sage. The boys immediately stopped their game. I had a feeling they were both afraid of Venus. She was pretty demanding, and when she didn’t get what she wanted she got angry. Like throwing things and screaming angry. I bet they’d experienced that before, and didn’t want it to happen again.

“Don’t you usually bowl with Jazz?” He asked. Ever since I started high school, I started going by Jazz instead of Jazzy. Jazzy seemed like such a little girls name, and I didn’t want to feel like a little girl anymore. And besides, Jazz sounds pretty badass.

“I do, but I wanna bowl with you tonight.” She smiled and batted her eyelashes. He shrugged at Ash and walked with Venus over to a lane.

I stood up and took the lane next to them. “Care to join me?” I asked Ash, and he smirked.

“I don’t see why not.”

I confidently strode over and grabbed a bowling ball. I positioned myself and swung my arm back.

When I swung my arm forward again, my fingers got stuck in the bowling ball. The force of my swing sent me flying forward. I hit the ground with a loud thud.

“Smooth.” Ash chuckled.

“Ha-ha.” I scoffed. I could feel my face start to heat up again. What was with all the damn blushing today? “I’d like to see you do better.” I challenged him.

I pulled myself off the ground and took a step back. He approached the ball return and picked up the bowling ball. I watched him take a step back and get ready to swing.

He too got his fingers stuck in the ball, sending him to the floor in a fashion that almost mirrored mine.

“Smooth.” I joked.

“What is up with these balls?” He stood up and dusted himself off.

“That’s what she said.” Sage chimed in from the next lane.

“Dude that doesn’t even make sense.” Ash shook his head with a laugh.

“It’s still funny.”

“Whatever helps you sleep at night, babe.” Venus patted his shoulder lovingly.

The four of us bowled for hours. It was dark out by the time we finished. There were no windows in the bowling room, but we knew it was dark because the black lights only come on when its night time.

“Good game, Jazz.” Ash smiled at me after we finished.

“Yea, after we got over all of that falling.” I joked, making him laugh.

“Hey, so I had a lot of fun tonight.”

“Me too.” I stated.

“So I was wondering if you wanted to hang out again, just the two of us?” He glanced down at the ground nervously.

Screenshot-4339

“Sure, why not.” I tried to keep calm, I didn’t want to seem too eager.

“Cool, so how about tomorrow after school? We can go to the park and just hang for a while, then maybe go to a movie or the diner.”

“Sounds like a plan, I’ll see you then.” We said our goodbyes, it was getting late and all four of us had to be home soon.

Screenshot-4350

I started my walk home alone. Venus and I always walked together, since she lived across the street. Right now she was making out with Sage, and I got bored so I started walking. I knew she’d catch up eventually, she always does.

My thoughts wandered off to my date with Ash tomorrow. I couldn’t wait to talk to Venus about it, I was kinda nervous and she always knew exactly what to say to give me confidence. She also had a boyfriend, so she could give me advice on what to do.

I also couldn’t wait to tell her I didn’t even have to ask him, he asked me. I just wish she’d hurry up with Sage.

“Make sure you’re sisters get to bed in the next hour.” Dad instructed as he went down the stairs. I had just gotten home and I was exhausted.

“Will do.”

“Night Jazzy.” Everyone else switched to Jazz, but I just couldn’t get my dad to shake Jazzy. I eventually gave up, but he was the only one who was allowed to call me Jazzy.

“Night Dad.”

“Where have you been?” Iris demanded as soon as I sat down on my bed.

“Out with friends. Why do you care?”

“What do you guys do?” Iris asked.

“Just hang out. But again, why do you care?”

“Iris wants to know what it’s like to be a teenager. She’s tired of being a little kid.” Ivy said softly from behind Iris, who nodded enthusiastically.

“Venus and I went bowling with the guys.”

“You hang out with boys? Are they cute?” Iris asked excitedly.

“Yes and yea I guess.”

“Do you have a boyfriend?” Ivy asked.

“Not yet, but I’ve got a date tomorrow.” Their eyes almost popped out of their heads. “Sit and I’ll tell you all about it, as long as you promise to go to bed right after.” They glanced at each other and nodded.

“Fine.”

Screenshot-4357

They both climbed onto my bed excitedly. I never noticed how interested they were in me. Maybe that’s because I don’t have an older sister. Or maybe I’m just not that interested in anyone else’s life.

“So who is he?” Iris was bouncing up and down excitedly.

“His name is Ash, he’s Venus’s boyfriend’s best friend.”

“What does he look like?” Ivy piped in.

“Well, he’s a vampire. He’s got long, bright red hair and dark red eyes.”

“What about his skin?”

“It’s yellow.” I smiled.

“He sounds cute.” Iris said, and Ivy nodded.

“Yea, he is. And we’re gonna hang out after school tomorrow.”

Screenshot-4361

“Wow. You are so lucky.” Iris looked at me with awe.

“I guess, I bet you’ll get asked out on lots of dates when you’re my age.” I encouraged her.

“What about me?” Ivy asked quietly.

Screenshot-4360

“You too of course, you guys are gonna get lots of dates.” They both smiled excitedly.

“I can’t wait to grow up!”

“I know, but now it’s time for bed.” I ushered the girls off of my bed and into their own.

“Night Iris, Night Ivy.” I said after flicking off the lights.

“Night Jazz.” They said simultaneously. Sometimes they were so in sync it was scary. I guess that’s twins for you.

I went to sleep that night with a huge smile plastered on my face. I couldn’t wait for my date tomorrow.


A/N Hey guys! So, this Generation is gonna get pretty rough at some points. As always, I’ll put warnings at the top of particularly bad chapters. But there’s going to be a lot of them, so buckle your seat belts folks, this is gonna be a wild ride. I’ve been waiting to do this Gen for a while now, I’m so excited it’s finally happening! I’ll be making a new banner soon, but for now you can just look at River’s cute little face 🙂 Thanks so much for reading 🙂

Also, Moonlight Arcade was made by parabee27 and you can download it here! It’s super cute, it’s perfect for Jasmine and her friends. Thanks so much, I really love it 🙂

Generation 3 Heir Vote!

Screenshot-4126

It’s that time again, time for an heir vote! I’m gonna do it a little differently this time, because I have a basic plot line I want to use no matter which girl becomes heiress. I won’t be explaining that here, instead I’ll be giving you the girls sub-plots, which will happen in the beginning before the main plot.

So without further ado, let me introduce our candidates!

Jasmine “Jazzy” Fae

Traits: Excitable, Disciplined, Rebellious

Occult Type: Vampire/Fairy Hybrid

Current life stage: Child

Lifetime wish: Undetermined

Sub-plot summary: Jasmine is the only one of her kind. Technically speaking, she isn’t even supposed to exist. Hybrid occults aren’t physically possible, yet here she is. Jazzy didn’t even realize she was different until she started school. She was teased mercilessly for her status. Her parents always told her she was special, and that they were just jealous. But Jazzy wouldn’t accept that. She wanted to do something about it. She wanted to make them pay. And after an incident involving her special powers, the kids are terrified of her. Jasmine discovers she’s capable of a lot more than she could’ve imagined. Will this power go to her head? Or will she be able to control it?

Ivy Fae

Traits: Good, Hates the Outdoors

Occult Type: Fairy

Current life stage: Toddler

Lifetime wish: Undetermined

Sub-plot summary: Even though she’s the older of the two, Ivy’s always been living in her twin’s shadow. Iris was athletic, she had perfect grades, and she was extremely popular with the vampires at school. Ivy on the other hand, didn’t have any special talents or abilities. She wasn’t crazy smart like her twin, and she wasn’t as special as her older sister. She was just boring old Ivy. But one day, she’s suddenly given the opportunity to make a name for herself. She could put her name in the history books. But to do this, she has to betray her entire family. Will she do it or will she stay true to the ones who love her?

Iris Fae

Traits: Athletic, Perceptive

Occult Type: Vampire

Current life stage: Toddler

Lifetime wish: Undetermined

Sub-plot summary: Athletic and popular would be the two words anyone would use to describe Iris Fae. She won all her soccer games, she was friends with all the cool vampires, and all the cute boys in school wanted to date her. But she didn’t have time for boys, she was too busy chasing perfection. Perfection is what Iris strives for, all she wants is to be living, breathing perfection. How far will she go to become perfect? Will she go too far?

Alright, so now that you know a little more about the girls, you can vote for your favorite! There might be a chance at a double heirship, but only if its a tie between the twins. Make-up, hairstyles, outfits, and small personality details are subject to change. Nothing here is set in stone.

Also, I’m looking for some good hang-out spot lots, like a cute diner or arcade or something. If you know any lots like that or think you could make one, let me know! I’d love to use them in my story, with full credit to the owners of course 🙂

Now, vote away!
