2.01 – The Lone Wolves

Chapter tune: Quiet Riot – Cum on feel the noize

Warning: Some profanity

“Jesse!!” Calla yelled impatiently while knocking on her brother’s bedroom door.

They had both recently moved out of their parents house and lived together in an apartment near the town center. Since they were so different, they had agreed that this situation would be temporary, at least until both their jobs picked up.

Calla was working as a filing clerk at a big pharmaceutical company. The money wasn’t great and her daily tasks were boring at best, but Calla was a very ambitious girl, so she was certain she’d go up the career ladder very soon.

Jesse on the other hand, wasn’t a fan of this corporate life and dedicated himself to music. He had a band with two close buddies of his, Dylan and Owen, named “The Lone Wolves” and got some gigs at local bars. They even had an agent, Vito. They hadn’t released any albums yet, but Vito was working their way into a music label, and he was confident they were near to closing the deal.

“Jesse, wake up!!” Calla shouted again and opened the door. Sure enough, her brother was sleeping with some random girl once again, at four o’clock in the afternoon.

“What? I’m up!” Jesse said as he jumped out of bed.

“I’m having some friends from work over for dinner” Calla explained “so get up, pick up your shit and get out of here. Don’t you have a gig tonight anyway? And a meeting with your agent after that?”

“Oh shit” Jesse said “I forgot about that. How did you know?”

“Dylan’s here” Calla said, looking pretty irritated. 

Out of all of Jesse’s friends, he was the one she couldn’t stand the most. He was always in their home eating their food and making a mess. Sometimes he even came by when Jesse wasn’t around, and Calla wanted to vanish from the face of the earth whenever that happened.

At that moment, the girl woke up. “Hey” she murmured “do you have an extra t-shirt I can borrow? I’m pretty sure you destroyed mine last night” The way she said that wasn’t flirty or provocative, but just stated as a plain fact.

“Well. I’m outta here” Calla said. She never approved of the girls her brother brought into their house, and she got the impression they got more and more slutty as time went by. But, that was to be expected from Jesse as she grew to know, especially after each of his breakups with more “serious” relationships.

“I think I’ll skip the gig to come to that dinner of yours” Dylan declared when she got downstairs “then I can be your dessert baby” he said and made a burping sound.

“Ok, you are disgusting” Calla replied “Just take your friend and get out of here. Oh, don’t forget to take what’s-her-face with you too.”

“Who? Oh, of course” Dylan didn’t sound too surprised that Jesse had brought yet another girl home.

“Why are you teasing my sister man? Don’t waste your time with her, she’s so stuck up sometimes” Jesse said as he made his appearance.

“I heard that!”

“That’s why I love teasing her man, she’s too funny when she gets mad! Ah, I can never resist”

“Anyway” Dylan continued “we should head to… oh shit.” he interrupted himself as soon as the green haired girl came downstairs.

“Dude, isn’t she that dancer from Tony’s bar? Oh man, are you even allowed to touch her? Fuck, he’s gonna kill you if that’s the case”

“Well, I guess we’ll find out soon enough” Jesse said “if I don’t make it out alive tonight, it was nice meeting you and all” he joked.

They soon arrived at the bar. Dylan and Owen got inside to get ready for the show, but Jesse got haulted by a large man at the door.

“Well, if it isn’t our dear customer Mr Frio” he mockingly said “Oh wait. You gotta be paying to be a customer”

“Hey man” Jesse tried to just pass without shifting too much attention.

“Not so fast” the man looked menacingly towards Jesse.

“Look man, I’m pretty sure I didn’t lose any money at that poker game last night. In fact, I think I did pretty good for once.”

“Yeah, but you took one of our girls home. You didn’t think it was free, did you?”

Was she one of your girls though? Cause I’m pretty sure she told me she was studying to be a lawyer”

“You’re hilarious” the man said with a serious expression “Didn’t she tell you her name was Glitter? What did you expect?”

“Man, I don’t judge. Sounds like a perfectly normal name to me” Jesse grinned.

“Enough with this fucking bullshit. You left with her when she was supposed to be earning money here, so you are both going to cover it. Its 200 simoleons plus the usual tax for being late. Hand it over or… well I don’t really have to explain it to you, do I?”

“Ok ok man, calm down. No need for violence. Here, take it.”

The show was a modest success, as always. The people there were not exactly fans, just regulars of the bar who just happened to be there and listen.

Still, the guys were having the time of their life.

“Vito’s waiting” Owen said after the show. Vito was a middle aged man who, more than he’d like to admit, enjoyed the company of the youngsters a lot more than he enjoyed that of people his age. He had been just a cheap solution at first, when the guys were looking for an agent they could afford – didn’t even have his own office – but they eventually grew to like him, even consider him as one of them.

“Look boys” he said “I’m gonna cut straight to the chase. The news are not good. You got rejected by that label we were talking about”

“What? But you promised us it was a sure thing Vito!”

“It was, until your singer left” Vito said while looking at Jesse.

The singer’s name was Amanda, and she was Jesse’s ex-girlfriend. “I still don’t understand why you broke up with her now of all times. We could have signed the contract first.”

“She broke up with me!” Jesse said defensively.

“Yeah, because you were cheating on her” Owen pointed out. He never approved of his friend’s shenanigans, especially now that it was going to cost them their album.

Dylan looked at Jesse. “You know they’re right though man, don’t you?”

“Still, she broke my heart, man. And now I gotta hear it too? Fuck this shit, man”

“Did I say I was done boy? I got some good news too. But it’s up to you to make sure they stay good.” Vito said “I have found a new singer for your band, and she’s good. Beautiful like an angel, too. But you gotta promise me you will not sleep with this one, you will not even think of laying your eyes on her. Or I’m out too. I’m done losing money out of you.”

“What? Oh, come on!”

“Ok, I’ll say it another way. I’ll make you a bet. If you manage to keep it in your pants with the new girl for a whole year, you can then do whatever you want. You’ll have your label, your album and whoever the hell you like in your bed. If you don’t, you can forget about all this and me.”

That got Jesse’s attention. If there was one thing he loved more than women or music, that was a good bet.

“And you’re saying she’s pretty?”

“Like an angel.”

“Fuck… ok man, whatever. I’m in.”

Vito flashed a smile. “That’s my boy. This is gonna be good…”

  1. Ooh, first chapter of generation 2 🎊
    Well, Jesse is such a heartbreaker. He reminds me of Sam, but at least he’s not bisexual… that’s something since it means double the number of partners, LOL. Calla seems so much more down to earth and Jesse is lucky to have her around, maybe she could keep him out of more serious trouble. Actually, that’s what siblings are for, right? I can’t wait to see how musical career turns out for Jesse!

    1. Yes!! This is so exciting!! πŸŽ‰
      Jesse is a heartbreaker for sure. Let’s see how this will turn out for him, especially with that new singer coming along πŸ˜‰
      Calla loves her brother very much, but they could not not be any more different. Let’s hope they will both be there for each other when they need it!

  2. Hello, Gen 2! I hope Jesse can keep his end of the bargain because it looks like this might be the last straw for the band if he can’t. I’m glad Calla and he are living together because she might be the only thing that helps him stay on track! LOL

    1. It will be difficult to say the least, but it might lead to better things for the band and possibly more πŸ˜‰
      I wanted to keep Calla close, I really like writing her – she’s a little stuck up sometimes as Jesse says, but she loves her brother, so it might be good for them to have each other close! πŸ˜€

  3. Well, it seems that Jesse has taken after Jared in more than just looks! Good lord, what a mess… at least he has Calla to keep his head on straight, no matter how much Jesse complains about her.

    On a side note, this chapter made me realize how much Calla looks like Rose.

    1. Haha, Jesse is such a mess! And things are about to get messier πŸ˜‰
      It’s funny because Calla looks like Rose but she is nothing like her mom personality wise. Talk about high maintenance lol!

  4. Yay Gen 2! ~
    Jesse is giving me young Jared-player vibes XD He definitely seems more wild though. It’s a good thing Calla is around to keep him in check, she definitely seems to have a more mature head on her shoulders. I’m interested in seeing the new band-mate, all of the characters are so attractive ;p Interesting start!

    1. Yep, Jared was more into brawls than women really lol!! Jesse is up for anything but fights, hehe! It’s a good thing he has Calla around indeed πŸ™‚ He might really need her help later!
      The new singer will make her appearance in the next chapter! Let’s see if Jesse can keep his promise to the guys πŸ˜‰

    1. Haha yes, that’s one of the reasons I wanted to keep them in the same house lol!

  5. Yay! Gen 2!
    Well, I can’t say I particularly like Jesse. The fact he had to be told not to sleep with a girl to pretty much save the band’s future… sigh. He very much gives me young Jared vibes. But I like Calla! She seems very determined and level headed, and she looks a lot like Rose~ And I like Owen, he too seems quite mature so far πŸ™‚
    I feel as if the one time he’s forbidden from hooking up with a girl, he might just totally fall head-over-heels for this new girl. I sense drama coming up… I can’t wait!
    Awesome start to the new generation! ❀

    1. Thank you so much!! ❀
      Yes, Calla is the reasonable one while Jesse is a total mess… I will blame those Frio genes (Jared's father had a thing for gambling too), because they were both raised the same way!
      About that new girl… you might just be right! πŸ˜‰ Drama is ahead, lol! 😁

  6. Ooh, who is this girl… I wonder if she’s is going to be a potential serious love interest… Jesse is literally the young Jared, and Calla seems like a more confident, out-spoken girl! I like her, she better keep her brother in line! I’m excited to see who the girl is!
    Great chapter and a great start to Generation 2!

      But will he be able to keep his promise? And we don't know what this new girl is like yet, will she even fall for his charms? πŸ˜‰

        1. Aah now I got it, I’m so sorry! Oh no, the singer is a girl indeed πŸ™‚ But damn, that was a really cool idea! It would have been so much fun for the singer to actually be a man! Lol!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Ugh, what a lost opportunity..! 😁

          1. At least, Vito can choose a girl very ugly that looks like a boy like this it’ll be hard for Jesse to turn around ahaha a little bit of disillusion.

  7. Dylan and Owen are hot! Like wow, I wish they were real. What happened to Jesse and Calla’s cousin; did Jesse say they were gonna be in a band together?
    You know what would be super funny, if this new singer was Calla. It’s probably not since she had an event happening and she had no interest in telling Jesse or Dylan anything, but it would just be funny if that happened.

    1. Yes!! I’m very proud lol! I think I like Dylan a little more but they both turned out to be quite attractive 😍 Ah, Basil πŸ™‚ Music wasn’t so much his thing after all, but he still hangs out with his cousins; you’ll see him in a couple of chapters πŸ™‚
      It would be so funny! But Calla is not the artistic type at all: she wants to be CEO and get married to a rich guy 😁
