Generation Two: Chapter Seven, Part Two

Hello hello! Part Two is finally here! 🙂 Part One got such great reviews! and I wanted to thank you all for your kind words!  I really appreciate it! I hope Part Two will measure up haha, its much longer than part one and did not plan on that, so I apologize ahead of time. I’m more excited for the next chapter haha because it will be another one of those chapters I think you guys will like.

As usual some things to note haha

1. Part Two is mainly conversation, less narrating. It was hard to convey facial expressions/conversation in little pictures so I got a little overboard.

2. I don’t believe any profanity is used, but if there’s a small chance you’ve been warned.

3. There are some outfit changes that look weird and screw up the shot, but please try to ignore the green shirt you’ll see Clemmy in for two shots. Its annoying I know. 

4. There is a puddle of water in one picture, the sink just happened to break at that moment and was too lazy to move the sim to a different room. Just ignore lol.

5. POV will shift in this update, and will be noted throughout. But, just so you’re aware of the change. We will start off with Clementine’s POV as usual.

I started to tousle around, just awaking from a deep slumber that felt like years. I could tell I wasn’t in my own bed because of how uncomfortable I was. I slowly kicked my legs around to change positions and slowly open my eyes. The room I was in was extremely bright and pure white. “I’m in the hospital I bet” I told myself.

Sure enough I looked to the left of me and there were three chairs for visitors to sit at, and to the right a small table with a fresh flower gently suspended in a vase. That’s when I was alarmed by two people talking far off in the distance. I glanced over by the door, and it was Almond talking to a nurse. I could really make out what they were saying, but I imagine it was about my status or their conclusions of me. Made me cringe that they were talking about me without me knowing or even me being awake.

“We gave her a sedative so she could sleep. Her body seemed to be dehydrated and like she hasn’t slept in awhile. She should be waking up anytime now.” the nurse stated

I slowly got up and changed into clothes that were laid out next to my bed. Seems Almond has been looking after me since being admitted. I slowly leaned in to listen to their conversation, curious to what their prognosis is. Almond seemed to just nod in acknowledgement of the nurse’s statements.

“Also, we’re going to keep her overnight a few days for a clinical observation. This is clearly a suicide attempt and we want to make sure she’s not clinically depressed and has the right mindset for her own health and safety.”

“Is that really necessary? I mean, I know I haven’t known her that long and she and I aren’t exactly close, but I don’t think she’s a threat to herself.” he inquired

 “Mr. Cashew, I’m going to be frank. When someone tries to hurt their own life, there usually is more going on than what meets the eye. Now, since you are not family I can’t tell you any specific details. But, for Clementine’s best interest and the interest of others we are going to observe her behavior and hopefully have her open up to someone. Does that make sense?” the nurse reexplained

“I see. And yes, I understand. Just hard to believe her emotional state would be shaken to its core is all. Sorry for my disbelief.”

 Screenshot-40 Screenshot-45 Screenshot-49

That’s when the nurse nodded in agreement to Almond’s words. Great, someone was here with me and I was going to be bombarded with questions. I’m still not prepared for everyone’s ambush. They’re going to mean well, but still. No one can know. Never. My story is so degrading and what if they don’t believe me? I let out a large sigh. That’s when Almond’s head snapped in my direction. Well, here goes Clementine.

“I didn’t realize you were awake.” he looked surprised

“Just enough to hear your conversation with the nurse.” I admitted

“Oh….you heard that?”

“Yeah, but its okay. I was going to eventually.”

“How are you feeling?” he half-smiled

“I’ve been better haha. I’m okay, just feel very weak.” I let out a small laugh

That’s when I stood up and Almond smiled. He must be glad that I’m okay. I’m not entirely sure how I feel about it yet. But, a small part of me is relieved to be breathing.

“How long have I been here?”

“Umm, just a little over twenty-four hours. They knocked you out so you could sleep and not wake up in a panic. Hope you don’t mind.”

Screenshot-53 Screenshot-61 Screenshot-64

I smiled and then looked down at the floor. How do you explain to someone you basically just did try to end your life? Not exactly a conversation starter….then again I wasn’t exactly expecting the next words to come out of Almond’s mouth.

” Clementine, why the berry would you try to end your own life?!” He shouted out of anger and misunderstanding

I started to frown and wince at his hurtful words. Who was he to judge my actions? He didn’t know one thing about my choice and thought pattern at the time. Who does he think he is to be the one looking from the outside in and to automatically judge and demand an answer. I didn’t like his tone on top of that. At this point, I wasn’t interesting in explaining myself to anyone. Even if that meant the usually nice and gentle Almond.

“You wouldn’t understand.” I whispered

That’s when Almond’s demeanor changed. Instead of his lips pouting out and body being tensed up, he sighed with defeat and frowned along with me.

“I may not understand.  But, I want to. I want to know why the nicest and sweetest berry I know tried to submerge herself at the beach one rainy day.”

Screenshot-70 Screenshot-75 Screenshot-80

“Please Clementine, I don’t want these so called “professionals” deeming you as a clinically insane berry. I know you aren’t one. There has got to be a reason you tried to drown herself.” he pleaded

What? How does he know-

That’s when I realized it. He was the one I felt around me. Almond is the one who pulled me out of the water that day. He’s the one who admitted me to the hospital…..

That’s when I became embarrassed. I can’t believe he watched me submerge myself in the clear waters of the beach. I felt my body start to tense up. No wonder he was so interested. He actually saw the whole thing, didn’t just hear about it.

Screenshot-84 Screenshot-89 Screenshot-95

“Look, I can’t tell you Almond. I know that’s not what you want to hear, but I can’t.” I stuttered

“Are you sure? I’m no doctor, but talking about what is troubling you is better than keeping it in.” he looked concerned

I am truly grateful he’s this devoted to our friendship, but…

“Look.  I know you’re being nice and as my friend you’re concerned, but I’m not ready and don’t want to tell you Almond.”

*sighs* “Okay Clementine. Do you want me to get you some water? “

I nodded. Turning away from him as the tears started to stream down my face. I couldn’t stand to face the horrible crime that was committed against me. I just want to forget about it. But, that’s when Almond turned right around and came up to be again.

“I tried to have Strawberry come see you, but she told me she doesn’t want to see you or talk to you. Did you guys have a fight? Is that why did it?” he interjected

“No. That’s not the reason. Can you please get me that water.” I sobbed

“Sure thing.”

Screenshot-112 Screenshot-117

That’s when Almond was on his way out, and then again stopped midway. This time he didn’t turn around, he just turned his head to the side so I could hear him.

“I sure do hope you tell someone Clementine.”

(Almond’s POV)

While I was out getting Clementine’s water, I couldn’t help but shake the feeling that something terrible happened to her that lead her to take drastic measures. If she wasn’t going to speak to me, maybe she’d speak to Strawberry. The only problem is apparently they aren’t on speaking terms. I had to find a plan in which Strawberry would come down right away, so I thought I’d text her and just be blunt about Clementine’s situation.

Strawberry. Your best friend Clementine tried to commit suicide yesterday and is admitted in the hospital. She needs you. -Almond

I hated to be frank, but that was the only way Strawberry would even think about coming down.

(Strawberry’s POV)

Screenshot-26 Screenshot-87

*Ping*

“Aghh, who is it now?” she mumbled aloud

Strawberry. Your best friend Clementine tried to commit suicide yesterday and is admitted in the hospital. She needs you. -Almond

Strawberry’s eyes widened as she read the horrifying text. Clementine? Suicide?

“Oh my berry.” she covered her mouth in shock

(Clementine’s POV)

Being in the hospital under surveillance is tiring. Especially when they think you’re going to injure yourself with anything sharp. Never thought I’d be treated like a criminal for dealing with the agony of being a victim. Almond was right. I need to talk about what happened. But, my mouth instantly shut when I think about his face.  Its like he has his hands ready to force my lips shut and I’m imprisoned in my own misery. No matter how hard I try to forget, he keeps forcing his way back in.

During the midst of my self-loathing, my hospital room door slowly opened and a familiar face came peering around the oak door. It was Strawberry.

“Hi.” she said quick

I was a little surprised she was here considering we weren’t speaking to one another. But, then I remembered what Almond said. He hopes I confess my deepest secret to someone. Strawberry was the reinforcement. I wasn’t sure how to approach that, but I did have to talk to her and apologize about my behavior.

“Hi.” I whispered, as I slowly got up from the bed

I started to walk towards her, and when we were facing each other a silence fell upon the room. Definitely an awkward meeting between two friends. One just tried to kill herself and the other doesn’t know what to say to soothe that thought.

“How are you holding up?”

Screenshot-139 Screenshot-145 Screenshot-150

“Oh I’m alright, just weak. Oh, and they seem to think I’m clinically insane haha.” I chuckled at myself

“Haha, well glad you aren’t. At least I don’t think you are.” she laughed

“Look, Straw I need to apologize for my behavior a few weeks ago-“

Screenshot-163 Screenshot-173

“No, Clemmy. Don’t. You obviously had a lot on your mind and you just took it out on me. Its alright. Please you don’t explain yourself to me.”

 “Okay…” I softly replied

“I just hope our fight didn’t lead to you to…..” she started

 Screenshot-179 Screenshot-182

“What?! Oh no. No. That’s not why I umm…..did what I did. I promise.”

“Then why did you….do what you did?”

“I’m sorry Straw. I know we just cleared up the fight we had, but I can’t. I just can’t tell you the real reason. I want to, but no. ” I declined

“Are you sure Clemmy? You can trust me, you know that right?” she reassured

“I know I can, but I can’t trust myself. This isn’t something I easily admit. I want to tell you, but compelled not to.” I closed my eyes at the dreadful thought

Okay. That’s Part Two. I apologize for the length haha, I even didn’t use like four photos so its shortened some from what I originally thought 🙂 Hope you liked it, can’t say it measures up to Part One though. As I mentioned I’m more excited for Chapter Eight. Its a defining chapter, and I hope you guys like it too! 🙂

    This was another amazing chapter!

    I knew it was Almond! I’m kinda relieved it was him to be fair and not some stranger. Now all Clemmy needs to do is speak up about what happened to her. But she has the support of her friends and family to help her get through this. Who knows maybe even Elixir will start warming up to her now?

    • bethysims says:

      Awe why thank you! 🙂
      Funny thing you mention Elixir….she has a vital role in the next twp or three chapters 😀 But, that’s all I can reveal.

      Yes, Almond my baby :3 I’m in love with him, but glad your suspicions were right!

      • Minty says:

        :O I was beginning to wonder when her somewhat problematic self would pop up again.

        Hehe, I just had a feeling it was him!

      • bethysims says:

        haha yep! She has a big role in this next chapter, I just have to find time to be awake and play! 🙂

        Almond is cutie, if my simself was berrified (which I should do haha), she would be hooking up with him.

  2. Even though Clementine hasn’t opened up to anyone yet, I actually can’t help but feel kind of hopeful after this chapter. After all, Clemmy clearly has at least two people who know what happened and are being supportive, which is more than a lot of people can say. I think, with time and continued support, she’ll be able to open up to at least one of them. Or at least, I sure hope she does! This is too much for her to keep bottled up inside 😦
