Chapter tune: Damn Yankees – High enough

Warning: Foul language

“C’mon babe, let’s get out of here. Where are you staying? I’ll take you there” Jared said to Rose while trying to comfort her. He figured he shouldn’t ask her what happened exactly yet, as it was clear she was still pretty upset.

“I don’t want to go to bed” Rose said. Suddenly her expression changed. “Let’s go to a bar! I want to drink tonight!”

Jared smiled. He wasn’t used to seeing her like that, but figured it wouldn’t hurt her to get a little drunk to forget this day for a while. Hell, he had been doing it for years.

The only decent bar in this town was the Red Rendezvous. As it looked exactly the same as its sibling in Sunset Valley, it stirred some not so pleasant memories, but they both decided to ignore the feeling.

It was still relatively early, so the place was still empty. Rose rushed to the bar. 

“Give me something strong and sweet” she told the bartender. 

Jared looked at the man. “Don’t let her get too drunk, ok?”

“I’ll do what I want” Rose protested. “Did I ever stop you from getting wasted and doing what you wanted? No. So go on and leave me alone!” Although she was talking to Jared, she was staring impatiently towards the bartender. The poor fellow didn’t know what to do.

Jared sighed. He knew he hadn’t been the best example himself all this time. “Ok doll, I’ll give you some space. I’ll be close though, whenever you need to leave just say the word.”

She didn’t reply and started enjoying the company of her freshly made cocktail.

And the one after that.

Soon, the bar was filled with patrons dancing and enjoying themselves. Rose felt like she was having the time of her life too, although everything in her view became more and more blurry.

“Hey beautiful. Such a shame you’re drinking all alone. Want some company?” 

Rose spotted a guy standing right next to her. “No, I’m good” she mumbled, but it didn’t make any difference. “Such a shame indeed” he repeated. “Here, let me buy you a drink. Yo!” he shouted at the bartender “Give her one more of whatever she’s having”

“She’s had pretty much all the catalogue man” the bartender replied.

“Well then, give her whatever the fuck’s the strongest! Do I have to tell you everything?” he said through his teeth.

Just as he was about to mess with Rose’s drink, Jared saw him.

“You! What the fuck do you think you’re doing?”

“Relax pretty boy, we’re just having a good time, me and nice legs here. So do me a favor and go fuck yourself” the man replied with a smirk.

“Who the hell are you calling a pretty boy?” Jared growled “Don’t you know a better way to find women other than spiking their drinks? Yeah I saw you, you sick fuck! Now she’s with me, so back off!”

“Look who came into my town to threaten me! You don’t wanna mess with me you son of a bitch! Maybe I’ll mess your pretty face and we’ll see if she wants you then!!”

Jared didn’t want to get into a brawl. He wanted to leave this life behind, so he turned to Rose. “Come on babe, we’re leaving.” But before he even managed to finish the sentence, the other man attacked.

It was pretty clear who won the fight. “Now fuck off and don’t make the mistake to come near her again, or I’ll make you wish you were fucking dead!” Jared said to the man. “Are you ready to leave?” he turned to Rose.

He wasn’t prepared for her reaction.

“No! I told you I want to stay here! This is all your fault!” she screamed “my life has been a mess ever since I met you! And now you’re telling me you found my family when all the family I had left was that sour witch that doesn’t even want to know me! Leave me alone!”

She immediately ran outside. Oh crap. Just as Jared was about to go after her, the other man stopped him. “Just so you know, this isn’t over” he said in a calm but alarming tone.

Outside the bar, Jared found Rose passed out on a bench.

Since he didn’t even know where she stayed, he carried her all the way to the house he rented for a couple of days.

“It’s ok baby, we’re almost there” he whispered as they entered the bedroom.

He tried to remove her clothes. “No, what are you doing?” Rose muttered, barely making any sense. Jared smiled. “Don’t worry baby, it’s me. I’m not gonna try anything shady.” His face turned more serious. “I’ll never let anything happen to you. Let me take your clothes off and then I’ll go sleep on the couch”

“No, don’t go. I don’t want to be alone tonight” she whispered.

Jared couldn’t bring himself to sleep. It was partly the fact that Rose was passed out like a log on top of him, but mainly it was the guilt that because of him, she had been in danger both physically and emotionally. He swore that from now on he would always protect her, even if she chose not to be with him after all – which he prayed would not be the case.

He never realized exactly when he finally fell asleep, but they both woke up pretty much at lunch time.

“Hey” Rose said, her voice was sweet and warm. 

“Hey doll. Did you sleep well?”

“Yes but… I want you to know I’m so sorry about yesterday. I mean, I don’t exactly remember everything, but I remember enough. I know you meant well… And thank you for being there and fighting with that man for me.”

“He’s not gonna bother you again baby. But don’t say you’re sorry… If there’s one of us who should be saying this it’s me. I’m sorry about everything that happened just because I was an ass. I really hope you’ll forgive me… someday.”

Her response this time was way better than what he expected.

When they finally managed to drag themselves out of the bedroom, they realised they were starving. “I’ll go buy us some groceries and then I’ll cook for you, ok baby? You stay here and rest some more, you had a long night” Jared said lovingly right before he planted her a kiss.

“Wait! Before you go, I forgot to tell you something” Rose smiled at him “I love you too.”

Jared beamed. “That’s good baby, cause I never plan to let you go ever again.” He gave her a longing kiss. They both couldn’t have enough of each other.

While heading to the grocery store, he spotted Margaret. 

He planned on confronting her about her behavior towards Rose, but before he had a chance to do it, her phone rang.

“Hello dear, it’s been a long time. What’s up? What? A car accident? And he’s there at the hospital now? But he’ll be ok? I see, I see. He said what? Oh, I know it’s nonsense dear. I’m afraid it’s happening again. Alright, as soon as he’s stable I’ll send him to a proper institution to be taken care of. You watch him closely, ok? I have to go now. Thank you for calling me dear, ta!”

Who could she possibly be talking about, Jared thought. He considered following her to see what she was up to, when he heard a familiar – but certainly unpleasant – voice.

“Well well well. If it ain’t pretty boy”

PS: Sooo, I wanted to say that my vacation starts this weekend, so I won’t be able to post any more chapters for the two following weeks 😦 But I’ll still be fully active here and hopefully during this time I’ll manage to catch up with all the wonderful stories I started and have yet to finish 🙂 Thank you so much for reading!! ❤

    1. Yes, that guy is a real scumbag (I believe he has the evil trait too)! It will certainly be hard for Jared to fight him along with two other guys! About the one Margaret was talking about hmm, maybe not so long a relative 😉

  1. I was happy that Jared and Rose made up. They’re such a cute couple. I feel like Margaret was talking about Rose’s dad. I feel like he’s still alive and she was just lying to Rose because she didn’t want anything to do with Rose and her mother.

    1. They’re very cute together, I agree! 😁 It was partly why I was looking so forward for this chapter! Margaret would be a real bitch if what you’re saying is true and she tried to hide him from Rose. Oh wait 🤔

  2. When Jared was fighting that guy in the bar, I was chanting in my head, Go Jared! Go Jared! lolol Now, I’m thinking…. RUUUUUUUUUUUUNNNNNNNNNN! lol 😛 I hope he doesn’t get hurt.

    I wonder what’s going on with Margaret and who she was talking about? The mystery deepens!

    I am so glad that our couple is back together again. 🙂

    1. Hahaha, he sure can fight a good one on one combat! But three guys…yeah, it’s not gonna be pretty 😐 Margaret has her own set of secrets waiting to be revealed! 😁 And I love those two together, it was high time! ❤

  3. Hey that isn’t fair! Because Jared won the fight against the other guy, that man is too scared to confront him alone! What a wimp! Anyways, I’m glad that in the end Rose didn’t end up hating him and running away… And I like that he protected Rose, even though she wasn’t feeling that good. I wonder who Margaret was talking to? She better have a reason for acting so terribly towards Rose!

    Great chapter 😊

    1. Thank you so much! 😀 That man is a total psycho! Jared finally knows where he stands, and thankfully Rose and him are on the same page! ☺ Margaret has a reason, she’s a cold snob evil witch! As for the call…you’ll find out soon! 😉

  4. Wowzas… that sure was a scene 0.0 I was like ‘GO JARED!’ when he was trying to protect her, but I also thought that there was blatant truth in what Rose shouted at him when she lost her temper. Her life probably would have been easier if she hadn’t fallen for him. But I’m soooo glad they made up after!
    I wonder who Margaret was talking about? Maybe another relative of Rose? Hmm… and run run Jared! I hope he bolts it and gets himself and Rose out of there back home, because I don’t think he’ll fare well going against three gangsters!
    Great chapter 🙂

    1. Thank you so much! 😄 There was truth in Rose’s words, and now that she said it out loud, they can both move on 🙂 But I was so happy that I could finally make them make up in this chapter! ❤
      If Jared doesn't manage to get out of there, it's gonna be ugly! As for Margaret's call, your guess is very close – the truth will be soon revealed! 😁

  5. The encounter of two bad boys from Sunset Valley and Twinbrook. Ah, that Sinbad for sure is something, isn’t he? Is that Marc Brandt and the other guy… he does look a bit like Goodwin, but he’s too “goode” to misbehave that badly. You know, I made up a story where Goodwin and Sinbad set up a plan to trick Jenni’s ex (only in my story) Marc Brandt and Jenni into the fact that they had a baby together and that it wasn’t Goodwin’s. Amy Bull was dating Marc and Sinbad had plans to take her. It was such a funny story.
    I also feel like that Margaret was talking about her dad. And it was so, so sweet when Jared and Rose got together!

    1. Haha, I always wanted to get those two to fight lol!! 😁 Although Jared is not evil, while Sinbad is. The other two guys are actually random sims I made using Marc Brandt as a base (he didn’t have the evil trait so I couldn’t bring myself to put him into the gang)! Oh and your story sounds hilarious! 😀
      About who Margaret was talking about…you’ll find out soon! 😉 (well, not so soon but in a couple of weeks!)
      I loved getting those two together! Ah, love 😄 ❤

  6. Oooh what a lovey-dovey chapter~ drunk Rose is adorable, hehe. Wow, I thought that jerk from the bar was going to show up way later down in the story but he re-appeared quick XD And what is this, I have some suspicions as to who Margaret could be speaking to, but it can’t be… can it? Hmm… I love a bit of mystery – I’ll hold onto my theories for now and shall wait and see 🙂 great chapter

    1. Thank you so much!! 😀 Haha, she is (even when she totally lost it)! I loved writing this chapter, I wanted to get them back together for so long lol ❤
      As for Margaret's call, I can't say much but everything is possible in this story! 😉

    1. Hehe, I was thinking exactly that when I was writing the chapter, trouble does have a way of always finding him! 😁 Though, to be fair, this time he was trying to protect Rose 🙂
      About Margaret, you’ll find soon! She has many secrets and is not the most honest person, I can tell you this! 😉
      Thank you so much! ❤ I'll be going to three Cyclades islands including Santorini (I've never been there and I'm super psyched!! 😄) Of course I'll do a little writing while I'm there, but unfortunately no laptop so no pictures..!

  7. I have the feeling that Margaret’s brother is still alive and she’s hiding him away from Rose for some unknown reason… Who else would she be afraid about so much if she had no family left? Mysteries, mysteries…

    Rose and Jared looked so happy at the end of this chapter. I deeply hope it will stay like this for good – eventhough I can smell a big trouble in the air! 😮

    1. Hmmm, I wish I could say lol! But everything will be revealed eventually 😉
      I love those two together! ❤ Jared finally knows what he wants from life and Rose decided to forgive him at last… let's hope they can stay like this for good! 😕
