Generation Two: Chapter Eight

Back again 🙂 I’m doing pretty good getting these updates out haha, which this generation is going to be longer than Meri’s just an fyi. But, I feel like just a few chapters I’ll be finishing it up, hard to believe considering its been a year since this generation started. This chapter is relatively long, but no way I could break it up into two parts. I’d say its a fair amount of dialogue instead of narration.

Hmm not sure what else to mention. Oh! This will be the last chapter for awhile because I’m itching to switch sim families, and there’s a generation I have yet to even start in one family haha. Plus, I need a break from plotty sim playing.

Things to note:

1. Profanity may be used

2. Full moon decided to come out when I didn’t want it to, so lighting is a bit weird towards the end, I attempted to deal with it the best I could. 

3. POV will shift in this chapter, and will be noted.

“What do you think the doctor wants to talk to you about so last minute?” Straw asked

“Honestly I have no idea. I passed all of my evaluations, and there’s nothings seriously wrong with me physically or internally, at least nothing serious that I know. Probably give me a pep talk about how I should talk to someone through my problems.” I speculated

Screenshot-7 Screenshot-10

She did have a point. What did they want to talk to me about? They told I could be discharged an hour ago. I hope everything is alright or they don’t bring one of those child-like psychologists who talks to me like I’m a child. I was just as baffled as her. That was until the nurse came in.

“Ms. Clementine Moscato?” she asked

“Yes?”

“So everything is alright, and you are ready to be discharged, we just have one final thing to discuss. After running those blood and urine samples we took from you, it turns out you are about four weeks pregnant. Congratulations on the new addition to your life. The doctor has scheduled some prenatal appointments for you so you can get up to date on the pregnancy and know what to expect. Otherwise, you are free to go.”

“Ww-what? Me? Pregnant?” my eyes widened with each reiterated word

No. I can’t be. Couldn’t be. My worst fear just came true. I’m carrying half of my rapist inside of me. No matter what I do, I can’t be free from his clutch. I broke down right then and there. The tears just started to fall from my eyes, and I quickly covered my face, trying to hide my sobs from the two women standing in front me of me.

“This….this can’t be happening.” I cried

Screenshot-17 Screenshot-31

“And you’re for certain she’s with child?” Straw chimed in

I could hear the disappointment in her voice, as she said “with child”. I was too ashamed to even look at her as I hung my head low with shame. A poor college student who went and got herself pregnant. I’m sure that’s what she’s thinking. I could feel her eyes on me, just waiting to say something to me.

Screenshot-35 Screenshot-39

However, I wasn’t expecting to be railroaded when I was finally was discharged and home once again. Just when I thought I repaired my relationships, it seems they were about to fall apart all over again.

“I can’t believe you Clementine! I cannot believe you! I swear on my berry sweet mother that you better not have tried that because you are now pregnant.” she immediately started to scream at me

“No. Never. I didn’t do any of this because I’m pregnant. I swear! I didn’t even know until the nurse told me today!” I drew back, trying to explain myself

Screenshot-46 Screenshot-55

“Oh do not feed me that shit Clementine. You wanted our pity party for you because you had a hunch you were pregnant and instead of taking responsibility for your actions and the outcomes. You make me sick. Here we are rushing to your aide, but you’ve been playing us the whole time.”

“How can you say that Strawberry? Do you really think I knew I was pregnant. I had no idea. Didn’t you see the shock I was in?”

“Whoa, ladies whats all the yelling about? I thought you guys mended your relationship?” Almond cut in

“Oh so did I. Until she pulls this shady shit on me. Go ahead Clemmy, tell Almond how you tried to drown yourself due to the fact of a pregnancy.” Straw bellowed

After ranting about supposed actions and announcing my pregnancy to the world, she eventually walked off and left, slamming the door behind her. So much for discretion.

“Is that true Clementine?”

Screenshot-60 Screenshot-63 Screenshot-67

“Of course not Almond. I would never endanger the life of someone else. Besides, I just found out I’m pregnant today before I left the hospital. How was I supposed to know?” I clarified

“Well, all I have to say is it better not be true. In fact, hearing you’re pregnant is a shock itself. But, no child deserves a mother who won’t take her obvious actions to heart and as suggested, take responsibility. I hope for your sake, and your unborn’s child’s sake, that won’t be you. ” he warned

Then just as the other berry, whom I thought was my friend, he walked off. Once again, I felt helpless. I don’t know why no one was believing me. I would never hurt someone else’s life. Never. Even if, I don’t agree with how this child was conceived or despise its’ father. I felt a frown slowly form, once again I’m a alone with no one to turn to. They don’t understand, this wasn’t a choice.

But, I’m sure if they knew the truth they would tell me I didn’t even try to tell them.

Screenshot-123

Screenshot-126

I decided I’d go somewhere, where I can usually think clearly and think in silence. No, I wasn’t going to the beach either. I went to the library instead. You’re probably thinking that’s a bad choice, because this is where I met my rapist but he can’t take this place away from me. I won’t let him. This is my sanctuary and I’m going to fight to keep it. It was starting to get late, but I didn’t care. The library was open twenty-four hours here and that meant not a lot of people would be there. I just wanted to sit there, and think about everything that’s lead up to this point.

If I wouldn’t of came to the library that night, I probably would have never met him. But, nope. I just had to have the urge to read in silence. I couldn’t of just read at home. That’s too easy. This could of all been prevented if I would of just stayed home.

Screenshot-135 Screenshot-139

Just one small mistake lead up to this. That’s when I started to feel my belly, and try to visualize being a mother and the growing baby inside me. I’m going to be a mom. Never thought I’d hear those words. I didn’t even plan on having a family. But, here we are. I am pregnant with my attacker’s child, and a part of him is inside me. At least for nine months, then a part of him is combined with me and is now in the form a berry. An innocent baby who has to grow up without a father, and will probably never know him because of the monster he is.

How am I going to do this? I can barely take care of myself. I’m falling apart at the seams as it is. Admitting defeat before I even become a mom made me upset. This child doesn’t deserve this kind of life or upbringing, but now its their fate. There’s no way I’m going to be able to single parent someone who reminds me of someone who destroyed my whole life.

“Its impossible.” I sobbed to myself

………………………….

“This can’t be done. I can’t help raise this child. What if I’m a horrible mom.”

(Elixir’s POV)

Screenshot-142 Screenshot-146 Screenshot-148

I was just finishing some research for my final projects, when someone was crying hysterically on the second floor of the library. I tried to ignore her, but I mean this is a library? Go cry at home, some of us actually use this place to study.

Of course, that was until I got off the computer and saw who this woman was. It was Clementine. She was Almond’s friend, the one I met and was actually, quite rude to. I started to walk towards her, but then stopped to awkwardly elude her. Should I go talk to her? What if she hates me and wishes to never see me again. I mean, I basically told her off and she looks in distress already. But, then again….Almond did tell me about her recent shortcomings, about how she tried to submerge herself under water. So I should go talk to her, make sure she’s okay.

(Clementine’s POV)

Screenshot-160

During my sob fest, I heard someone else on the floor, but I ignored them. Until I see feet standing next to me. I recognized her feet, it was Elixir? What is she doing here?

 “Elixir? What are you doing here?” I sniffled

“I came to see if you were alright, since I could hear you crying.” she replied

Elixir? Coming to see if I’m alright? That’s surprising considering she despises me as being Almond’s friend. But, at least she’s here and I can maybe talk to someone, if my conscious lets me.

“Soo, are you alright? Crying at midnight, in a library usually isn’t a good sign.”

Screenshot-166

Screenshot-2

I wasn’t sure if she actually knew about what was going on with me or not, but I decided to lie.

“Oh I’m alright, just a little emotional these days is all. Sorry for bothering you.”

Screenshot-15 Screenshot-24 Screenshot-32

“Yeah, I don’t mean to pry or sound rude but, you were crying as if someone died, and as I mentioned in the library. Plus, Almond told me about the problems you’ve been facing lately. I don’t think you’re okay Clementine.” she pointed out

She was right. I’m not okay. I’ve been sexually violated by someone I trusted, tried to kill myself and now am carrying his baby. I’m harboring too much guilt and stress. I can’t hold this in any longer.

“No, you’re right. I’m in horrible condition. My life has been ripped from me for the past month. First, I meet someone I thought I could trust, but only ended up being betrayed.” I wailed

“What? How did they betray you?”

“He, he, “

“He what Clementine. Please, tell me so I can help you.” she pleaded

“He raped me, and now I’m pregnant with his child. I don’t think I can handle much more.” I sobbed

As I was wiping away tears from my eyes, I could tell Elixir wasn’t sure how to respond to that kind of news. But, a huge sigh of relief has been lifted from my chest. I feel like I can breathe again, knowing someone finally knows. But, now I had to really explain. I just hope I’m ready for that.

“Uh..I’m sorry, I’m not sure what to say Clementine.”

Screenshot-36 Screenshot-41 Screenshot-49

“Do you want to tell me more about this man though. It sounds like you’ve been keeping this a secret for a long time. I don’t want to push you, but I can tell you’re already feeling some relief.” she said

“Um. Yeah, I can try to. You’re the first person I told, so I’m not sure how open I’ll be.”

“That’s okay. Start off small. Who is he?”

“His name is Choc Bean, I met him here actually. At the library. That’s when he asked me out, and we had a great time. He was funny, classy and smart. I couldn’t believe a man like him would want to go out with me actually.” I started

………………………………………

“By the third date, we went to a movie and he was walking me home because it was dark out. A night like tonight. We were walking on the path behind the house, and his attitude changed. He was more demanding and was curious about my personal history with men. I told him that wasn’t important and I didn’t want to tell him. He then started to joke about how I’ve probably never been with a man and then he forced himself on me. I told him no, repeatedly. And I mean repeatedly.”

“I believe you Clementine. No means no.” she soothed

“And now, now, I’m pregnant and have no idea how I’m going to raise a child that was conceived in the worst way possible. Or the fact he or she will share DNA with that horrible man.” I started to cry again

Screenshot-54

Screenshot-80 Screenshot-83

“Hey, don’t cry Clementine. After telling me what you just went through, you’re strong enough to keep your head up still. You will make it through this, its just going to be a long road and as you’ve probably come to know, an emotional one too. Here, let’s sit down.” she reassured

…………………….

“Are you going to go through the pregnancy then?”

“Well, every child deserves life so of course I am. But, then again I’m torn between how I”m going to parent a child who will remind me of my rapist. What if my son or daughter ends up looking just like him. Plus, what if they ask about their father? There’s a lot of unanswered questions that need to be concerned. Plus, I’m going to need a lot of support which I don’t have right now.” I explained

“Even though we aren’t exactly friends yet, I want you to know I’ll support here. This wasn’t your choice. I’m sure if you told Almond and Strawberry they will behind you too.” she smiled

“I don’t know about that. Straw was there when they told me I was pregnant, and she thinks I tried to commit suicide because of this baby. But, I had no idea I was pregnant, and I would never endanger someone else’s life. Then she went and blew it all up to Almond, and I think he fears the same thing. So, they aren’t exactly happy with me.”

“What? That’s ridiculous. That berry of a woman had the audacity to say that to you. And Almond believed her? Almond needs to be talked to then. They both should know that wouldn’t be like you. I can even tell.”

Screenshot-95

Its strange how much better I felt telling Elixir about what happened to me. For someone to just listen has you tell her details that were humiliating and inappropriate, it meant a lot. I’m glad she was here tonight. Having someone hear me out with no judgement. Especially since we didn’t start off on the right foot. I’m glad I built up the courage to come clean. I feel like, for the first time in this past month, everything will be okay as they’ve been telling me.

“Listen, your baby may share half of its’ DNA with its berryhole of a father, but you’re the one who’s going to carry this baby to term, and be there when they’re welcomed into the world. That’s what makes a parent. Your baby will love you unconditionally, as I’m sure you will him or her. I think you’ll be a great mom, even if you have no idea what you’re doing.” she pulled me into a hug

“Thanks. I really needed this. You have no idea how much guilt I’ve been keeping inside.” I let out a small smile

“You’re welcome, but you need to tell Strawberry and Almond. If they knew the truth, they wouldn’t of acted like they did. The more you share, the better you’ll feel. As painful as that sounds. I’ll be there for you when you decide to tell them.”

I think…I think I’m finally going to be saved.

That was Chapter Eight 🙂 I think this is a chapter a lot of readers were hoping for. I’m going to take a little break from The Moscato’s though, so enjoy the four updates while they lasted haha. Thanks for reading and commenting.

Chapter Eight

Happy New Year! Even though I’ve said it already, I figure it would be better to say it now since this is the first post on this blog o 2014! Wooo! I have a few things to shed light on (once again) before I get into the chapter. First, hope everyone is having a great 2014 so far :). Two, I wasn’t sure if I expressed this concern previously or not, but it was something that came up with the last update. I at first thought that this generation would only be about ten chapters, which I really don’t want the generations to be like that. I compare this legacy with my simself legacy, and on that blog each generation ranges roughly 14 chapters and I like that length. I always make rainbowcies shorter and I don’t like that. But! My creative mind got to working today and I think this generation will (hopefully) be longer than ten chapters-just something to look forward to.

Thirdly, the family tree has minor spoilers just letting you know. I know there’s a warning already on that page, but just thought I’d give a heads up. And lastly, I changed my editing style with these screenshots, and like them way better than what I’ve been doing, so they might look this way from now on. I want a new editing program, and hopefully get a little more photochop savvy so they can look even better.

I’d also like to give credit and thanks to the poses used by Chibkisims (I might of spelled it wrong! sorry) and Splaudoum. And I’d like to give credit to Aikea-Guinea for the props used.

Alright, *sight of relief* I think that is all for now. Sorry for the major introductions.  If you guys just knew what I was going to say this wouldn’t be a problem XD. Hope you enjoy the update!

NOTE: ADULT THEMES AND SITUATIONS WILL BE CONVEYED IN THIS UPDATE. IF YOU CANNOT HANDLE IT, PLEASE DO NOT READ. These adult situations include, alcohol abuse and prescription abuse. Also, minor bloodied up face and facial woulds are shown. Again, if you cannot handle this please do not read. 

And this chapter will have the same POV throughout, Meri’s.

Well here we are again. Or at least I am. Once again, left in the dust with a broken heart from another berry fudging man. I don’t see why this keeps happening to me. I’m not like other women who fling themselves at men. I’m reserved and shy.  I let them in too easily, that’s what it is. I’m right aren’t I? Berry fudge, I just want this cycle to end! I deserve to be happy and to stay happy. The only happiness that’s lasted is having Apple here in town and having someone to talk to endlessly. I can’t say I was truly happy with Strudel because I wasn’t, he just wanted to use me and make me the perfect berry woman. As for Tangerine…..I, I can honestly say I was happy when he was here. I don’t know what it is, but something about him just makes my face light up and my stomach have butterflies. But, that feelings is gone. All I feel is a big hole in the pit of my stomach. A big chunk of my heart was ripped away too. I’m hurting, and I don’t know if I’m going to be able to bounce back from this one.

Screenshot-11

Apple wasn’t too keen on hearing my woes and moping around about Tangerine, so she made a few suggestions to me. Both of us know I want to have someone to call mine. That may sound like rushing things, but I’m not. I just want someone I can call all my own, and he do the same. Life isn’t running short nor is my biological clock for that matter, but I don’t want to be waiting forever and I do want a family someday. A family with a marriage and kids. I’ve never been known as a jealous person, but seeing Apple and her family makes me earn for that. I’m sure she knows that and sees that. I think that’s why she’s done with my moping and bawling around. She suggested to try online dating, and then looking the guy up before I meet them? I don’t know if I should invade their privacy like that though. But, I did make a profile and did meet someone on here. We recently had a date too. His name is Bourbon Fountain. He’s very cute and nice.

Screenshot-14

He seemed sweet and he made me smile, but something told me this wasn’t what I should be doing. I don’t know if its because our date wasn’t a huge success or I was being close minded. I just couldn’t shake that feeling that this wasn’t right. I tried blaming it on the date the whole time. We went to the summer festival and when we arrived, it started to rain and hail. I starting taking that as a sign that this wasn’t supposed to happen. He apologized, but I told him it was fine and that mother nature can’t be predicted.

Screenshot-15 Screenshot-16

The second sign was that I could see differences within us early on. Now, I’m not saying I don’t appreciate differences within people. I wouldn’t want everyone to be like me obviously, but to me this was something important being that I am a garden baby. I love the outdoors, and every season. Winter isn’t the best since it puts me out of a job, but its still beautiful and fun. I got the feeling Bourbon didn’t like anything other than sunshine and seventy-five degrees.

“Oh berry no! Its starting to hail now! Ouch! I hate this kind of weather.” he complained

“What? Why? This is mother nature’s way of replenishing the earth and making everything prosper.” I chimed

 It seems stupid, but something was giving me these signs.

Screenshot-17 Screenshot-19

I do have to say though he made the best out of the weather. He joked and asked if I wanted to enter the eating contest. I laughed and told him he was crazy. But, he wasn’t kidding apparently. So, that’s what we did. We actually entered the contest, and boy was that a bad mistake. He seemed excited and looked like a man of food, and who enjoyed food. Which, is no problem by any means. I’m not that kind of girl. I’m glad he had fun at least, me on the other hand almost threw up in front of everyone. Which, didn’t make the rest of the date too much fun. I felt sick the whole time.

Screenshot-20 Screenshot-21

But, towards the end of our date that’s when I realized what I was actually feeling, and why nothing seemed right.I wasn’t ready to move on yet. I rushed things to make myself feel better. Feel that empty void in my heart. Poor Bourbon, he had to take me on a meaningless date. I wish I could of took back time, but I just had to let me know the truth. He seemed nice enough to understand and I thought maybe we could be good friends. It just wasn’t fair to him. The whole time I thought of what Tangerine would do if he was here, or what would we do? Tangerine is still all I thought about.

“Bourbon, I have something I need to say.” I frowned

“You didn’t like the date did you?” he frowned back

“Oh no no, it was a fun date! I just need to tell you that I couldn’t enjoy the date and your company because I’m still not over the last man I had relations with. I’m sorry. I know that’s not fair to you and I thought I was ready. But, truth is I’ not. ”

“Oh. Well that’s okay. I understand, I wouldn’t want you to dive right into something you weren’t ready for. I’m glad you told me too. This last guy must of really had an impression on you huh?”

“Yeah, he sure did.” I felt a small smile come across my face

“Well, if you ever want to do something again, give me a call alright?” he smiled

“I’ll definitely keep that in mind.”

Screenshot-9 Screenshot-10

Over the next week, I found myself getting more distressed and sad over Tangerine and his antics. I been trying to fight through it the best way I know how. I couldn’t go anywhere without thinking or being reminded of him. He’s been in every inch of my home, in my garden, the beach, and everywhere else around Apple Loosa Pie. I wasn’t sure if it was a blessing or a curse really. All I know is that these tears were real and falling far too often. I was hurt and alone. But yet, I missed him. I hate to admit it, and I sound crazy for saying it. But, I really do. I miss him and I just want to see him again. Even if its just see him or talk to him one last time. That’s all I want. No, that’s what I need.

Screenshot-24

Screenshot-31

I know Apple didn’t want to hear about this, but I needed her to know. I didn’t want to go do this and surprise her later on. She may be a good friend, but she can snap very easily and has no problem giving up friends. Even if we are best friends. She needs to know how I feel and what I intend to do. I was both scared and nervous to tell her, but she’s my friend and always knows what to say.

“Okay, so what did you want to talk about now?” she huffed

“Its about Tangerine.” I answered quietly

“Meri, I told you I didn’t want-“

“Just wait a minute though. I’m not defending him or anything.”

“Ugh, okay. What about the scumbag 0f a berry then?” she scoffed

“Its just that, well lately…no, ever since he left….” I stammered

“Meri?”

“I miss him. I truly miss him. I don’t know why, but I can’t help but want to see and talk to him.”

“You miss him? How? After what he did to you?” she asked, her anger slowly rising

Screenshot-44

Screenshot-45

“Well I’m not defending what he did. He was a menace for lying and doing that to me.” I scowled

“Oh don’t even get me started on what he did to you. What kind of man does that to a girl he knows has strong feelings for him?”

Apple didn’t like Tangerine from the start, and she certainly isn’t his biggest fan now. She had every right not to be, but I had to try to make her understand my feelings. If this was December we were talking about, and she was in my place she’d feel the same way.

Screenshot-46

Screenshot-47

Screenshot-48

“I wish I could tell you why and how, but I can’t help but yearn for him.”

“Yeah, I wish you could tell me too Meri. But, I can tell you really mean it. You really do miss him, I can see it in your eyes.” she sighed

“I think I might eve….love him.” I whispered

“Wait, what? Now you love him?”

Screenshot-51

Screenshot-54

“Yes, I do and I would really like your support. You are my best friend and over this past year you’ve seen my lowest points and high points. I want you to support me and my feelings about him. It seems so wrong, but yet so right. I’m telling you this because I know you will be there for me.”

“Oh Meri, I’m sorry for being a bad Apple about it all. I just want what’s best for you and don’t like to see you hurting.” she pulled me into a hug

“Thanks, and I know you’re only doing your job as a friend. But, I don’t want to do anything drastic without telling you either.” I admitted

“What do you mean drastic?”

“I’m going to go see him Briocheport. I know you probably think that’s crazy but that’s the only way I’ll ever see him again, and I’m going to apologize to him.”

“Are you sure about that? Is that right thing to do, go surprise him?” she asked

“Probably not, but I need to see him and sort things out. What else can I do? This isn’t a phone conversation and he would ignore my call even if I tried.” I explained

“Well, alright then. Just be careful and don’t do anything stupid.”

Screenshot-23

Screenshot-27

And so that’ what I did. Of course I did some minor planning and saving up money. It took me about two weeks to put everything in order and be prepared. I bought my train ticket, mapped out my journey, looked up Tangerine’s address, and worked up what I was going to say to him. This all seemed crazy then and now. I would of never thought I’d be the one chasing a guy down. But, I feel good about this, with a little bit of hesitation on the side. The train ride wasn’t long at all, but took longer since I don’t have a car and really don’t like to drive. Eventually I managed to flag down a taxi and told them the address. I was dropped off at the corner by his apartment complex. I was in total awe when I got out of the car. I was surrounded completely by tall buildings and it was so noisy from all the bustling berries and traffic. It was definitely a different pace than Apple Loosa Pie, and explained a lot about Tangerine.

Screenshot-30

Screenshot-33

Screenshot-39

I walked into his apartment complex and couldn’t believe how small the lobby was. Why did city berries think smaller and compact is better? I can’t believe he lives like this. I could never live in an apartment. I looked over at the directory, and there were so many names. Apple told me you usually had to buzz to be let in. I quickly scanned to find his name. I stopped when my finger was pressed firmly over his name. Just seeing his name before my eyes made my heart flutter. This was it. This was the dreaded conversation that would either give us closer or end us.

I stopped before pressing the button next to name to collect my thoughts and run everything over in my mind. I was starting to have second thoughts and was conflicting with myself. I had to keep telling myself you came all this way for a reason, and that reason being you want him. But, the other side kept telling me that he might just fill you up with more sadness and doubt and you’ll regret this decision for the rest of your life. So many thoughts, and so many good reasons behind each one.

Nope, I wasn’t backing out of this. I was going to press that button and talk to the man I love. I clicked the buzzer, and was buzzed in automatically? I thought that was weird since they usually ask who it is. But, I didn’t dwell on it. I head my breath as I stepped onto the elevator.

Screenshot-40

Screenshot-42 Screenshot-43

When I got off the elevator, it was a single floor with two apartments. the floor was very small and I looked at both apartment numbers to find Tangerine’s. I stared at his door. I smiled, but quickly frowned remembering this might not turn out to be a happy meeting.  I knocked on the door calling out his name. No answer. He knows its me and isn’t going to answer the door.

Great. I thought to myself.

But, I had to keep trying. I knocked again and called out his name. I tried saying that all I wanted to do was talk and wanted to see him. But, no response. I put my ear against the door and listened to see if I could hear him moving around. But, all I could hear was the tv blared and it was starting to become fuzzy like it had been left on for quite some time. This made me a little worried. I tried not to think of what could of possibly happened, but I made the choice to just go in. I turned the knob, and the door was unlocked. I let myself in and came to see the tv that was giving off so much noise.

Screenshot-49

Screenshot-2

I stood there taking in the apartment, it was quite small and looked like no one lived here. It was so cold and strange.

“He lives here?” I said quietly.

It was quiet and unfamiliar. There was no personal touches of Tangerine, it was bland with color and style. I got the impression he barely spent his time here whether he likes it or not. Usually in berry culture you’re house reflects your berry nationality. I expected bright hues of orange to be scattered around, but its white and dull. The only thing that looked disturbed was the small kitchen table. I walked over to it slowly, not realizing that its obvious no one is probably home or he might be sleeping. I don’t know why I didn’t check the rooms when I first came in? When I walked over the tiny wooden table, I looked down with horrified eyes. At least three bottles of different kinds of alcohol and beside one, scattered pills.

Oh Tangerine no. He didn’t look the type to be into pill popping or have a drinking problem. Oh berry, what if our arguemnt lead him to this!? My eyes darted to the bottles and pills at that point. No, this can’t be my fault?But, what if it is?  My heart started to pump faster and I scanned the room once more. This made me nervous and sick feeling. I ran into the bedroom and swung the door open looking for him. He wasn’t there. There was one more place to look. The bathroom. I was so scared and chilled to the bone. I didn’t want to look, but I had to.

I slowly walked to the bathroom door and once again pressed my ear to it, and I heard nothing. That gave me a sigh of relief and terrified me. What if he was in there and something happened to him? What if he tried to harm himself? All of these thoughts running through my mind. I slowly gripped the knob, and turned it. The door creaked open against the linoleum. That’s when I saw a pair of bright orange legs. I gasped and opened the door more, afraid to know what I’m about to see. I stared at the floor, looking at Tangerine laying there lifeless. Tears started forming in the corner of my eyes as I looked around at the two bottles and pills next to him. He tried to kill himself. What if this is because of me?

I threw my hand over my face, I didn’t want see this horrible sight anymore. I didn’t want to believe this moment is real. I had to do something, but was frozen. I needed to call for help! I pulled my cellphone dialing nine, one-one vigorously. I could barely speak to the operator on the other end. All I could make out was overdosed and bloodied face as I looked at him and screamed over the phone through my cries and tears. This couldn’t be happening. Not now, when I was going to make everything right.

Alright guys! That’s it for this chapter! Lots of drama and a cliffhanger :S

Stay tuned to see what happens next! I’m actually excited for the ending of this generation, and can’t wait to play and write it!
