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!

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.

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.

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.

River Fae Chapter 1: Good Luck, Solider

Screenshot-1981

I arrived at my sister’s house a few minutes later. I needed advice, and she was the one person I knew who was the best at giving it. Misty had recently met her real mom, and I hoped she would give me some pointers. When I reached the door, I noticed it was partially open. I figured she was home, so I swung it the rest of the way open and stepped in the house.

Screenshot-1983

When I entered, I saw something I probably wasn’t supposed to see.

“Oh god, I’m so sorry.” I apologized as my sister jumped off the couch.

Screenshot-1986

“Oh, Hey River.” Misty said awkwardly.

“Hey…” I smiled tightly. “I’m sorry, it’s just the door was open so I assumed…”

“It’s okay, that’s my fault.” Misty smiled.

Screenshot-1987

“It’s nice to see you, Misty.” I approached her quickly and hugged her as tight as I could.

“You too kiddo. How you been?”

“I’m okay, how are you?”

Screenshot-1988

“I’m great!” She smiled. The vampire on the couch cleared her throat. “Oh right. River, this is Amber, my girlfriend.”

The teal haired girl jumped off the couch excitedly.

Screenshot-1991

“Hi River, I’ve heard so much about you. Missy just gushes about you all the time. It’s so nice to finally meet you! I know you haven’t heard anything about me, Missy’s been a bit weary about telling her family.” She babbled excitedly. I honestly never really thought about my sister’s sexuality. But it’s not really my business anyway. Whatever makes her happy, right?

“It’s nice to meet you too.” I laughed.

“How is everything at home?” Misty asked.

“It’s good.” I stated. “I’m kinda on a time crunch, so I gotta cut to the chase. I’m meeting my father today.”

Screenshot-1995

“Oh god, River are you sure that’s a good idea?” Misty worried.

“Yes. I came over here to get some advice.” I admitted. “I don’t really know what to say.”

“Well, I don’t really know what to say. Honestly, when I met my mother, we kept it short, sweet and we haven’t talked since. Neither of us wants a relationship, but I bet that’s not the case with you, is it?”

“Right. I do want a relationship with him.”

Screenshot-2006

“Well, my advice is just be yourself, ask him questions about himself, and also don’t be accusing. There are two sides to every story, and its been quite a while since everything happened. So I guess you should just go in with an open attitude.” Amber suggested. I thought it over, and it seems like a good plan.

“Thanks Amber, I think I’ll do that.”

Screenshot-2007

“Good luck, Soldier.” Misty joked. I laughed, we said our goodbyes, and I headed out to meet my father.

——-

Screenshot-2009

“Sorry, we don’t want whatever you’re selling.” A teenage boy who resembled me quite strikingly said when he answered the door. This house was in the bad part of town, did my mom really live here once? And did my dad really live here now? Maybe I have the wrong house.

“I’m not selling anything. I’m looking for a man, his name is Vance. Maybe I’ve got the wrong address.” I mumbled as I started to leave.

“Wait, did you say Vance? That’s my father’s name.” I swung back around. No wonder this kid looks so much like me.

“Really?”

“Yea, he’ll be home from work in half an hour. You’re welcome to stay if you want.” He offered.

“Thanks, that’d be nice.” We entered the house and each took a seat on either couch.

Screenshot-2017

“I’m Carrot, by the way.”

“I’m River.” I smiled awkwardly.

“That’s a cool name.” He gushed.

“Thanks.”

“So, whatcha need my dad for? Does he owe you money too?” He asked, as if that were a regular thing to say.

“What? Um no, he’s um, also my dad.”

Screenshot-2016

“What? Really? I don’t believe you.” He glared.

“Why is that so hard to believe? I mean, we look so much alike, it’d be weird if we weren’t related, right?” I said cautiously, he might be younger than me but I doubt I could take him in a fight. He stared at me for a long time.

“I guess. I don’t know if he’ll be too happy to hear this. Let’s hope he’s in a good mood today.”

“Wha-” I started to say, but was interrupted by the sound of the door opening.

Screenshot-2019

“Carrot, who is this?” A teenage girl about a year younger than me asked.

“I’m River.” I half waved. She had the same hair color as me and Carrot, so I assumed she was also a child of Vance’s.

“Why are you in our house?”

“He claim’s that dad is his father.” Carrot huffed. The girls eyes widened.

“Fourreal? Damn, I thought Mom was joking when she said dad cheated on her. I guess not. I’m Fern.” She threw her purse down in the corner of the room and took a seat next to me on the couch.

Screenshot-2028

“So, I’ve seen you around school a few times. You graduated last year, right?” She asked, and I nodded. “Yea, I remember you. Who knew we were related.” She laughed. She seemed like the exact opposite of her brother.

I was about to say something, but I was once again interrupted by the door.

Screenshot-2031

“Who is this?” A large, purple man growled.

I jumped off the couch and faced him. He definitely resembled me more than my mother.

“I’m R-River Fae.” My voiced cracked. He furrowed his eyebrows, as if he were trying to remember something.

“Kids,” He spoke to the teenagers seated on the couches, “Go in the bedroom.” they nodded and quickly obeyed.

I approached him calmly, I tried not to let my nerves show. But wow, this was my father. Not exactly what I imagined him to be.

“You’re River, correct?” I nodded. His grim expression changed into a smile.

Screenshot-2038

“I wondered when you’d be showing up around here. Come, take a seat. Let’s talk.” He placed a hand on my shoulder and guided me to the couch. I’m gonna take a wild guess here, but it seems as if he’s in a good mood.

Screenshot-2042

“So, you’re Vance?” I questioned. He nodded.

“Yea, I bet your mother has said some pretty terrible things about me, right?” He laughed.

“No, she hasn’t really said much about you, actually.”

“That’s surprising. She usually has a lot to say.” We both chuckled this time, my mom sure did talk a lot.

Screenshot-2058

“Look, I’m not proud of what happened between Primrose and I.” He sighed and put his face in his hands. “I was such a dumb kid then. I made a lot of mistakes. Hell, I still make a lot of mistakes. And honestly, I didn’t love your mother. But I did care about her. I didn’t want to hurt her like I did, but my fiancee at the time was insistent. She wanted me to make sure Primrose was never in my life again.

“After I left, Champagne and I got married. We had two kids, I know you’ve already met them. We agreed to stop sleeping around after we married. She held up that deal until after Carrot was born, but soon after she started again. I tried to get her to stop, but we ended up fighting too much. She left me with the kids, she didn’t want them to burden her. But I guess you don’t care about that. I just needed to let you know, I guess.” He ran his fingers through his greasy hair and sighed again.

“It’s okay.” I smiled and patted his shoulder.

Screenshot-2054

“So what about you kid, what’s your story?” He questioned. I didn’t really know what to say. What was my story?

“Well, I’ve got a step-dad, two step-siblings and a half sister.”

“So Prim moved on? Good. I’m happy for her, she really didn’t deserve what I did. Who did she marry?”

“Jeremy Shepard, he’s a musician.” I explained.

“Oh yea. I know that guy. He seems like he’s a good match for her.”

“He really is.” We sat in silence for a while. He wasn’t at all what I expected. I expected a douche bag who didn’t give a rats ass about what other people were feeling. But that wasn’t the case at all. He was a man who made a lot of mistakes, but lived with regret. I half expected to hate him, but I couldn’t. After all, he was only a dumb kid when I was born. I guess it wouldn’t hurt to have a relationship with him.

Screenshot-2050

“Kid, I hope you don’t mind, but I’d really like to have you in my life. And I bet you’re siblings would like that too.” Vance offered.

“I’d like that.” We smiled at each other. He glanced over at the clock and gasped.

“Oh god, Kid, it’s getting late. Your mother is probably wondering where you are.”

“I am an adult now though.” We laughed again. He understood my humor, so that’s a good sign. We both got off the couch though, I knew it was late and I should be heading out.

Screenshot-2060

“It was really nice meeting you, Kid.” He hugged me quickly.

“It was nice meeting you too. I’ll contact you soon, maybe we could get lunch sometime.” I didn’t mean to sound so formal, but I guess I wasn’t exactly comfortable with him yet.

“Sounds good. Night.” He said as we walked to the door.

Screenshot-2064

“Wait, River!” My half-sister called as I was walking down the walkway. I still didn’t know her name but I wasn’t going to admit that.

“Yea? What’s up?”

“I can do it too.” She trembled.

“Excuse me?”

Screenshot-2065

“I can do it too. Talk to the dead.”

“What? H-how did you-“

“I can sense it. You’ve got the gift, I’ve got the gift, and I assume your mother has it, mine does too.” She replied.

“Okay…”

Screenshot-2066

“Don’t let it go to waste. Our gift is so important, we can do so much with it.”

“What am I supposed to do with it?”

“You’ll know soon, I promise. But please, when the opportunity arrives, don’t pass it up. We’re capable of so much.” She was practically begging now.

“How do you know?”

“This isn’t the only gift I’ve got, dear brother. Now, you should be heading home.” She ushered me to my car. “Oh, and be careful with Clover.”

“Wait, what?”

“Bye River! Oh, and my name is Fern, if you were wondering.”

Generation 2: Prologue

A/N This Gen contains some sensitive subjects, I’ll let you know when there’s anything particularly graphic.

Screenshot-1917....

The cemetery is a place of sadness and mourning for most people. For me, the cemetery was a place of comfort, it gave me a sense of belonging. Death doesn’t necessarily bring me joy, but rather a itch to know more. What happens after life? Is there an afterlife, or do our souls just roam the earth without a place to go? You might be thinking, why can’t I just ask? I mean, I can speak to ghosts, right? Well, they’re not allowed to tell me. Believe me, I’ve asked many times.

But I guess that’s what makes it so much more intriguing. Why can’t they tell me? Do they just not want me to know? Do they want me to figure it out on my own? Or is there some high power telling them not too? There are endless possibilities, which is frustrating and fascinating all at the same time.

Screenshot-1946

I didn’t exactly have a job yet. I wasn’t really good at anything besides talking to ghosts. I was an alright athlete, but I could never go pro. I dabbled in inventing, but I never really made anything ground-breaking. I knew all I could do was something ghost related, but I have yet to find a paying career that incorporates it.

I really hoped I would find something soon, my girlfriend, Clover Lyn, was becoming an adult soon, and I promised her we would get a house when she did. No one knows we’re dating, she’s about four years younger than I am and it’s a little weird right now. But once she’s a legal adult everything’ll be fine. Clover was my best friend. I could tell her almost anything. I haven’t told her about the whole communicating with the dead thing yet, I don’t want to freak her out. The only two people who know are my mom and my Uncle Basil.

Screenshot-1798

My parents are amazing. My mom is a strong woman. She’s been through some rough times, but she’s still the happiest person I know. My dad is great too, he looks like a rough kind of guy, but he’s actually the exact opposite. He’s like a giant, punk teddy bear. But he’s not my biological dad. My real father left my mom right when she found out she was pregnant, he had a fiancee he never told her about.

Ever since I found out he existed, I’ve been curious to know what he was like. My mom didn’t talk about him much. She just told me he was not who she thought he was, and that he wasn’t worth knowing. But still, I couldn’t help but wonder. Did he ever marry that fiancee of his? Were they still together? Did they have any other children?

Well, as the saying goes, curiosity killed the cat.

Screenshot-1951

“Mom, can I talk to you for a sec?” I approached her cautiously. We hadn’t really talked about my real father much, and I was scared to bring it up.

“Sure, what’s up?” She paused the movie she was watching and stood up.

Screenshot-1956

“I was um, wondering about my um, real father.”  I stuttered. “I wanna meet him.” Her expression changed to a worrisome one, and she bit her lip.

“Oh sweetie are you sure?”

“Yes. I’m an adult now and I’d like to know who my father is.” I explained. “Have you seen him recently?”

Screenshot-1959

“Oh god River. I really don’t know how to tell you this.” She buried her face in her palm.

“What? Is he dead?”

“N-no. I see him every day, we still work together.” She admitted.

Screenshot-1964

“So, you’re telling me you see him everyday, and you never thought to introduce me?” I was starting to get angry. Did he know I existed? And if he did, why didn’t he wanna see me?

Screenshot-1960

“Look, River. He and I decided that we didn’t want to pressure you into that. We wanted you to come to us if you wanted to meet him. We wanted to make sure you were ready.”

“So he does know I exist?”

“He does.”

“Does he want to meet me?”

“He does.” She repeated.

“What’s his name? And address?” I decided that I wanted to meet him, and now.

Screenshot-1971

“Woah, sweetheart slow down. Are you sure you’re ready for this?”

“I’m sure.” I was ready. I needed to know. I was tired of guessing.

“Okay, His name is Vance Pinson. He lives in the house I used to share with Chrissy, I’ll write the address down for you.” She ran across the room for a notepad and scribbled something down, then ran back over to me. “Here.”

Screenshot-1976

“Thanks Mom. I love you.” I pulled her into a hug and kissed her cheek.

“I love you too River. Good luck.” I smiled at her, squeezed her hands, and headed for the door.

Screenshot-1977

I was ready to meet my father, but there was someone I needed to visit first.

Primrose Fae Chapter 4: Shattered

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

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

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

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

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

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

——-

Screenshot-749

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

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

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

Screenshot-751

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

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

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

Screenshot-755

We broke that bed in a few times that night.

Screenshot-752

My life was finally taking a turn for the better.

——-

Screenshot-757

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

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

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

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

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

“I think it’s just the flu.”

“Have you been to the doctor yet?”

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

Screenshot-760

“Have you missed your period?” She asked.

“Um I don’t think so.”

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

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

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

Screenshot-763

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

——-

*Chrissy*

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

*Primrose*

Screenshot-767

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

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

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

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

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

“Tell me what…” I hesitated.

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

Screenshot-768

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

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

“I already did.” I whispered.

“What do you mean?”

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

Screenshot-770

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

Screenshot-772

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

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

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

Screenshot-774

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

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

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

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

Screenshot-776

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

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

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

Screenshot-780

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

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

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

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

“You’re good in bed.” he laughed.

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

Screenshot-782

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

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

Screenshot-784

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

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

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

“That is so fucked up.” I laughed.

Screenshot-787

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

Screenshot-791

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

Screenshot-795

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

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

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

Screenshot-798

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

——-

Screenshot-800

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Screenshot-803

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

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

Screenshot-805

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

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

Screenshot-807

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Primrose Fae Chapter 3: Secrets All Around

Aside

Image

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

Screenshot-574

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

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

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

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

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

Screenshot-577

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

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

Screenshot-580

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

“Oh? Would you mind sharing this trick?”

Screenshot-582

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

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

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

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

——-

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

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

Screenshot-583

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

Screenshot-585

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

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

Screenshot-586

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

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

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

Screenshot-588

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

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

——-

*A few months later*

Screenshot-682

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

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

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

——-

Screenshot-689

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

Screenshot-691

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

*Vance*

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

Screenshot-694

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

Screenshot-695

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

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

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

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

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

After all, we had our wedding to plan.

Primrose Fae Chapter 2: BBF (Boss’s Best Friend)

Screenshot-220

“Hey Prim, isn’t your boss a vampire?” Chrissy asked me. She moved in with me a month after we met, and we’ve been living together for while and I finally had real furniture in my living room.

“Yea, why?”

“Is he cute?” she wiggled her eyebrows up and down.

“Ew Chris, he’s my boss. And he sucks blood, never gonna happen.” I made a disgusted face at my friend. Chrissy has been trying to set me up with anyone and everyone ever since she met her boyfriend, a fairy named Hero Ponce.

“Oh come on Prim, I doubt he’s that terrible. And you’re both into music! It’ll be perfect.” she smiled to herself like she made a life changing discovery.

Screenshot-224

“You’re joking right?” I stared at her with disbelief, but it was so obvious she was serious.

“You never answered my question.” she giggled. “Is he cute of not?”

I sighed and nodded. “He’s alright for a vampire.”

She smiled so wide that it looked like her face would rip in half. “It’s settled then. He’s coming to the party tomorrow.” she giggled, jumped up and ran into our bedroom before i could object.

—-

Screenshot-265

It turned out my boss was busy that day, so he couldn’t make it. Half of me was relieved, but a part of me felt a little disappointed. I quickly brushed that off though, he was a vampire and my boss. It was gross either way. Screenshot-255

Chrissy was the only one I knew at this party. I’m not a very social person, I have one or two close friends and that’s usually it. This party was very out of my element, but I came here for Chrissy. Not that she actually hung out with me the whole time. She was a little social butterfly and didn’t hesitate to talk to anyone there. But she spent the majority of her time with he face attached to Hero.

Screenshot-256

There was one guest who caught my attention though. I’m not shy, just very picky about who I talked to. This guy definitely was up to my standards, so I just had to introduce myself.

Screenshot-257

“Hey there, I’m Primrose.” I flashed him my best smile. He smiled back and shook my hand.

“Hello Primrose, I’m Abner.” his voice was strong and very deep.

“Enjoying the party?” I asked. He nodded.

Screenshot-264

Abner and I ended up exchanging numbers. I discovered he also liked to party, and that we should go together some time. I smiled at the thought of that. Partying with cute guys was way better than partying with friends. Not that I’d tell Chrissy that.

Other than meeting Abner the party wasn’t very exciting. Everyone just kinda stood around talking, much like we were. Chrissy and Hero were the only ones who actually went in the pool, but the guests still had a good time.

Screenshot-519

It was the first day of fall. The Fall Fest had started today, and I decided to check it out. Chrissy was working so I went by myself, since I work nights. There was barely anyone there, it was a Wednesday and most people were working.

I scanned the park, looking for someone I knew. I didn’t have many friends outside Chrissy, just maybe some co-workers. My eyes landed on a familiar purple figure by the apple-bobbing tub.

“Hey Prim!” He called out to me.

Screenshot-522

I had no choice but to approach him. “Hey Vance…” my voice trailed. I really didn’t want to hang out with him willingly. I was still uneasy about his vampire status, and I really didn’t want to get murdered by my boss at the fall festival.

“You wanna bob for apples?” he smiled at me, flashing his perfect white fangs. I gulped, the thought of my neck being so close to his mouth with my hands tied behind my back wasn’t something I was looking forward to. But saying no wasn’t really an option here.

“Sure, why not.” I faked a smile.

Screenshot-523

He totally whooped my ass. I stood no chance against him, his vampire speed combined with his fangs gave him a huge advantage.

“Sorry ’bout that Prim.” he laughed and scratched his neck. “Guess I should’ve gone easier on ya.”

“Nah it’s all good.” I smiled at him. He wasn’t that bad, actually. Not that I’d admit that out loud.

“Wanna go check out the haunted house?” He nodded his head to the tall building on the other side of the park.

“Sure why not.” I smiled and linked my arm in his.

Screenshot-527

Vance got the crap scared out of him while I stood back and laughed. He had pouted, but it was extremely funny.

“Y’know Prim, I’m not a bad guy. Just because I have fangs doesn’t make me mean or evil.” He said to me after we exited the house.

“What do you mean?”

“I can tell by the way you ignore me and the other vampires at work. You only talk to the fae that work at the theater unless we talk to you. I know a lot of you are afraid of us, but I promise, I’m not gonna hurt you.” He smiled softly, scratching the back of his neck again. It must be a nervous habit.

I smiled back at him. “Yea, I can see that now.” I stepped closer to him. “C’mon boss-man. We’re going clubbing.”

Screenshot-528

I grabbed his wrist and pulled him behind me. He didn’t resist, so I assumed he was down with my idea.

Screenshot-374

And that’s how I became best friends with my boss.

—-

*A few weeks later*

Screenshot-357

“Vance, what are you doing here?” I asked as I emerged from my shared bedroom early in the morning.

“I got bored. And you’re couch is more comfortable than mine.” he stated as if it were the most simple explanation in the world.

“Ugh whatever.” I laughed and threw myself on the couch next to him.

Screenshot-358

He pulled himself up onto the top of the couch. “So what’re you doing today?” I asked as I watched the news upside down.

“Whatever you and Chris are doing.” He laughed.

“Well I have no idea what we’re doing, so we should go ask her.” I laughed and rolled off the couch.

Screenshot-376

A little while later, the three of us found ourselves on the floor of the bedroom. We sat, or in Vance’s case, laid, down and listened to the new albums I brought home from work yesterday.

“What are we doing today?” I asked.

“I think we should check out the bowling alley. Hero said he’s been a few times, it sounds like fun.” Chrissy suggested. It sounded like a good idea. I’ve never been bowling before and I guess it wouldn’t hurt to try it out.

“Sounds like fun, I’ll start the car.” Vance jumped off the floor and ran out the door. Chrissy giggled and I just shook my head. He looked badass, but he acted like a puppy.

Screenshot-378

“So,” Chrissy eyed me as we pulled ourselves off the floor. Her lips curled into a mischievous smile. “Are you finally gonna make a move?” she giggled. I rolled my eyes. Vance and I were close, and we flirted occasionally but it was nothing serious.

“We don’t even know if hes single, Chris.” I sighed. It was true, he never really told us if he was seeing someone, whenever the subject came up he changed it. It was kind of fishy but I let it rest. I wasn’t gonna pressure him to tell me something he doesn’t want to.

“True, but it can’t hurt to try.” she playfully pushed my shoulder and fluttered out of our room. Screenshot-387

I rubbed my neck and sighed. I guess she had a point.

————————

Screenshot-406

Bowling was a lot of fun. I completely crushed both Chrissy and Vance the first time around. Chrissy stormed off, probably to get a coffee or something. Vance and I started another game, and I was fully prepared to completely slay him (pun intended).Screenshot-412

I guess I got a little too excited when I won, because Vance started cracking up at my victory dance.

“That looked ridiculous.” He laughed.

“Someone’s just bitter they lost to a girl. Again.” I stuck my tongue out at him. It was childish, yes, but it was funny at the time. He snickered and dramatically threw his hands to his face.

“You caught me. I’m utterly crushed!” he exclaimed. We laughed again, but his expression abruptly changed into a serious frown. “Oh god, I didn’t realize how late it is. I’ve got to go.” He hugged me quickly and ran off.

I was extremely disappointed, as I had been thinking about what Chrissy had said. Vance was pretty special to me, and I really wanted to tell him that.

Screenshot-430

I don’t know how it happened. After I told Chrissy about my disappointment, and the next thing I knew we were in a club. I didn’t really mind though. I was drunk, I was dancing, and I was with my best friend in the whole world. I couldn’t really remember what exactly I had been sad about, and it didn’t matter in that moment. I was having way too much fun to care.

Screenshot-438

Yea, we were having a really, really great time.

Screenshot-452

I probably wouldn’t have been having so much fun if I knew what was going on on the other side of town.
