1.08 – Master of disaster

Chapter tune: Poison – Every rose has its thorn

Warning: Profanity (again)

​Jared jumped in front of the man who was moments ago seen having a conversation with Molly.

“You” he said aggressively “what’s your name?”

“Well I don’t believe that’s any of your concern sir”  the man replied. He had a distaste in his voice and his look.

“Oh, don’t tell me you’re ashamed because your name’s Dickhead, are you?”

“My name is not.. that’s preposterous! Why on earth would you talk to me like that? Do I know you?”

“Not yet, but you seem to know quite a lot of people here Dickhead.”

“I don’t know what your problem is young man, but may I say you’re looking quite drunk and your breath smells abhorrently. If you don’t leave immediately I’ll call the police”

“I’m the police around here! And I don’t like your face so if you don’t leave I’ll give you something to remember me by!”

“You’re insane! Fine, I’m leaving! Where is the manager? I want to make a complaint!” the man shouted as he quickly fled the scene.

“What are you looking at?” Jared hissed at poor Cycl0n3 as he has heading to the bar.

Molly was already there, pretending not to have witnessed any of the insanity before.

“So here you are” he said “Who was that?”

“Oh him?” Molly said indifferently “He’s my accountant, I thought he could use a drink after all the effort he went through to prepare my taxes.”

“Oh I’m sure you would show him a great time Molly.” He then grabbed her and pushed her on the nearest wall.

“What do you think you’re doing, you’re driving me crazy!” he said.

“Please leave me alone mon cheri, you wanted to date that clueless girl so there, the path is clear”

Jared grabbed her hair and neck to bring her closer to him and whispered “I still do, but I want you one last time”

“Jared?” Rose’s voice was heard dangerously near. Jared felt his whole body go numb, and that effect was only partly from all the booze he had that night. Rose approached him and they both stayed silent for a while.

“Rose… what are you doing here?” he asked.

“You must think I’m such an idiot, right?” she finally said softly, but clearly hurt. “I changed my mind for tonight, I wanted to see you so I asked Christopher to drive me here. But it seems that you found a way to have fun without me.”

“Rose, I don’t know what I was thinking.. I wasn’t thinking anything really. Please, you must know I didn’t cheat on you”

“You didn’t, but you may as well have. I heard you Jared.”

Jared didn’t know what to say. Why did he let his old habits take over that night? He wanted to start over with Rose more than anything else. His father’s voice echoed in his head “Once a bum, always a bum” He had proven him right once again.

“Rose please, I didn’t mean to hurt you” he tried to get closer to her. But Rose distanced herself even more.

“Well, what a great job you did. I don’t even know why I thought you weren’t what you seemed to be, the man everyone warned me about. I don’t want to see you anymore. Please don’t call me ever again” she said with a trembling voice.

As Rose started to walk away, Jared saw Molly leaving too, clearly very satisfied with herself.

“Where do you think you’re going?” he said, looking like he could murder her any second.

“You think I’m responsible for this? Think again of what you did tonight. I can’t say I didn’t enjoy it though. Oh, one last thing, tell that useless girl of yours not to bother coming to work tomorrow. She’s fired!”

“What did she ever do to you Molly?! You know what, you can tell her yourself. I quit!”

“Well then, good luck working at the diner, or even better, that warehouse that I found you in and made you what you were – until now! Goodbye!”

Rose sat outside the bar. It was a hot night, but she just couldn’t stop shaking.

Just when she thought everyone was gone, she let go and started silently crying. Suddenly Chistopher approached and sat beside her on the bench.

“I’m here for you Rose” he said. Then, the sound of a closing time song coming from the bar was the only thing filling the silence.

  1. Ohhh Jared… I still don’t know what the hell to think about you. He royally screwed up there, losing both Rose and her job for her. I’m kinda leaning more towards Christopher now. He’s such a sweetie, and he seems much more suited for Rose. But I do want to know what is the cause of Jared’s erratic and violent temper…
    Great chapter 🙂

  2. Oh, he was so drunk and unsatisfied because Rose didn’t want to sleep with him that he had to jump on Molly, lol. Well done, Jared, now you’re both without a job. Maybe Christopher may be a better job, but since the main theme is romance between her and Jared, I’m guessing they will eventually end up together.

  3. Sometimes you just can’t tame the beast. It’s better to cut ties and lick your wounds. Good luck, Rose. You’re gonna need it.

    Very good chapter! This story is really sucking me! I’ve got to agree with Lila that I really want to know Jared’s past. But I also don’t want dear Rose to suffer.

    1. Thank you, I had tons of fun writing this chapter! 😀 ❤ There are a lot about Jared's past that haven't been told (but I plan to tell them in future chapters so stay tuned lol)! I feel bad for poor Rose too, I guess I'm a heartless creator! 😂

  4. Only now when I finally started accepting Jared with all his flaws, he totally ruins it. I don’t know what to think of him anymore, but I believe that if he was serious with Rose he wouldn’t hit on his ex… At this point I don’t know what could save this situation. I’m sorry that Rose lost her job because of him, but maybe it was a sign. She can do much better both in her personal life and her career!

    1. Jared was always the type to get what he wants when he wants it, plus he has a serious problem with his temper and control issues. I don’t believe he had fully realized what he was doing at that moment, but Rose was right to write him off then, what he did was unacceptable! Her career will take a better turn though, so that’s a good thing 🙂

  5. I’m not sure who I think would be best for Rose. Jared is a bit of a scumbag but he’s changing. Christopher is little annoying but he’s cute and hasn’t hurt Rose…. The line “Once a bum always a bum.” made me laugh. I can’t believe Jared’s dad told him that.

  6. I really did think Jared changed 😦 I think he did, but with the drinking, he got a little carried away. I do think Christopher would be better for her, he’s very sweet, but I feel as if in the end, Jared would finally change permanently and they will be back together. I just hope that he doesn’t have anymore slips like those…

    1. Oh, he’s got quite a journey ahead if he’s really going to change..! Although there is a reason behind this bad behavior of his, it will be hard to shake it off just yet! 😐
      Thank you for commenting! 🙂

    1. Aaah, my poor Christopher. ❤ Whenever I see him in stories and legacies he almost always gets friendzoned (at least at first)! Hmmm, unfortunately I hadn't given too much focus on him when I was writing those chapters..but you'll see soon what happens! 😉

  7. *smacks Jared up the head* She should’ve slapped you. Rose handled this very graciously. Ah but well here’s another guy… Christopher… Trouble continues to brew in this story.

  8. Next to Rusisel in IP, whom I remake everytime I play him to look different, Christopher is my favourite Sim. I played him a lot when I first found the game. He is always different too depending on what the game decides. I’ve even seen him be a fairy…..I was excited for that and my sim married him for sure because of it! Sigh, now I want to play him again!

    1. Ah, I get what you mean! Now I realize how much I miss those SV premades… maybe I should load up this town again someday!
      When I first landed Rose in SV, I actually had a story in my mind where she would have a terrible relationship with Jared and then she’d end up with Chris; but those two couldn’t stay away from each other and Jared was actually very sweet to her – imagine my surprise lol! That’s one of the reasons I decided to tell this story here! 😀
