2.03 – Truce

Chapter tune: Whitesnake – Still of the night

Warning: Some swear words

“Gee man, I can’t believe you invited Skye tonight without telling me. Thanks a lot” Jesse groaned – his irritation was aimed mainly towards Owen who actually invited her.

That night was the twins’ birthday, so the boys – and Vito – where heading to a local club to celebrate.

“Maybe because she’s now part of the band?” Owen replied “I still don’t get why you don’t like her man. She’s cool and a lot of fun if you ask me”

“It’s not that… but everytime we’re in the same room she looks at me like she wants to punch me. I don’t see why tonight it would be any different. I don’t wanna get punched on my birthday!”

“Maybe cause you’re constantly treating her like you’re a ten year old? Grow up man. And stop speeding!” Owen said.

“I am growing up dude. It’s my birthday after all, is it not?”

“Yeah, you told us like a thousand times already”

“Look boy” Vito said “that whole bet thing was for the band to keep one good singer for more than a year. Because you sleep with each and every one of them and then push them away. But treating her badly might have the same result. Try to at least be friendly with her, ok? You need her.”

“Whatever. She probably won’t come anyway. Can we change the subject now?”

“So where’s your sister? Why didn’t she come with us?” Dylan asked.

“Oh, she had a super secret date with a super secret dude she’s been seeing lately. She’ll come by herself later.”

“A date, huh” Dylan mumbled “Well, you should be telling me that stuff man. I was running short on ways to tease her” he grinned.

They finally arrived at the club. The twins’ guests were already there, including their sister Emily, and their cousin Basil.

Soon, Calla arrived too.

“If it isn’t the birthday girl!” Dylan ran to greet her “Looking good babe, I really like your hair like that. So how was your date? I see your lipstick’s still on, don’t tell me your new man’s a prude?”

“Ugh, I’m gonna kill my brother. It’s none of your business Dylan, but if you must know, it was amazing!”

“Really? Good, good, I’m happy for you. You have to tell me his name though. How else am I going to create my ship name for you two?”

“Oh, stop it!” Calla giggled. Although she usually didn’t enjoy Dylan’s company, tonight she was in a pretty good mood to be bothered by his teasing.

That moment, Skye entered the room. She had let her hair loose, something quite different from her usual girl-next-door ponytail, and wore a short black dress. She was feeling quite shy tonight, but did a fine job not to show it.

“Whoa man…” Dylan muttered as soon as he laid his eyes on her.

“Yeah…” Owen replied.

Jesse stayed silent, but like his friends, he couldn’t stop looking at her, completely mesmerized.

“Who’s the girl that deprived all three of you of a decent vocabulary?” Calla asked “Not that you had one to begin with, to be honest”

“She’s our new singer” Dylan replied “but what is this? Are you jealous babe? Ah, you know you’re always my number one”

“Me, jealous? Over you? Yeah, keep dreaming loser. And stop calling me babe!” she spat.

“Sure, I’ll stop. As soon as you stop being so damn cute when you get mad” he grinned.

“Hey, uh… happy birthday” Skye said awkwardly.

Jesse quickly regained his speech, although it probably would be better if he hadn’t.

“Fuck, Skye” he said “you look smokin’ hot tonight, I almost didn’t recognize you!” The fact that he was already drunk didn’t help him to put any effort on using his internal wordfilter.

“Come on man, stop that” Owen muttered embarrassed, as he saw Skye’s cheeks turn crimson with shame and anger.

“Don’t mind him” Owen said to Skye when Jesse left “he’s wasted. He’ll probably won’t remember half of it tomorrow. But he got one part right, you do look lovely tonight”

“Thank you” she replied “it’s really nice to see a friendly face here. I know he’s your friend, but I just can’t stand him. Coming here might have been a mistake after all…”

“Oh no, please don’t go. It’s very nice to see you too. I’m not big on dancing, so things were getting a little boring here – for me at least. But not anymore now that you’re here.”

Skye’s face lit up. It felt good to have at least one friend at this place, although she usually avoided getting close to people. She always figured that the less attached she got, the less it would hurt when she’d finally leave.

Meanwhile, Jesse approached Vito. “This is killing me man” he said “you gotta give me more.”

“What on earth are you talking about?”

“Skye. Didn’t you see how hot she is tonight?”

“Yeah, but I thought you didn’t like her!”

“That’s not a problem for me as you know. I never really liked Amanda either. In fact, I think I prefer it that way”

“You’re impossible boy. I wanna know, do you ever listen to yourself?” Vito scoffed.

“Alright” he continued, after giving it some thought “just because it’s your birthday; If you win the bet, and actually try to be friendly with her, I’ll give you Accidental Therapy‘s first album – signed by Leo himself”

“Whoa man, are you serious? That’s priceless! How did you even get your hands on it?”

“Let’s just say I’m a collector. But I’m not finished; if you lose, you gotta give me your father’s first award. You know, the one he keeps on display at his restaurant”

“What? He’s going to kill me if I take that award from him dude!”

“Then make sure you don’t lose boy. Do we have a deal?”

“We do Vito. It’s a deal.”

The night went on. When most of the guests had left, Jesse spotted Skye alone at the bar.

“Hey” he said “can I buy you a drink? I mean, as it’s my birthday and all. Thanks for coming by the way”

“Nah, I’m good. You didn’t seem too happy to see me before anyway. And no need to thank me, I didn’t come for you. I came just because Owen asked me to.”

“Yeah, he asked you to come to my birthday, so – ”

“It seemed like the polite thing to do. Although it looks like you don’t really know the difference between rude and polite” she replied coldly.

“Ouch. Well, I guess I deserved that… but honestly, I was just joking before!”

“Of course, everything is a big joke to you. I don’t know, maybe I shouldn’t have come, since tonight is supposed to be about you. Thanks for the offer, but I guess I’ll leave.”

“Hey, come on. I’m sorry. Can we start over? I was going through a weird phase when we met, and you were right, I was a total jerk. But I’m not such a bad guy once you get to know me… what do you say? Truce?”

“Why would I wanna do that, especially after the way you talked to me tonight?”

“Well, first of all we work together, you said it yourself. And, well… I guess what I’m really trying to say is that I’d like to be friends with you and I’m really sorry for being such a dick since we met… I’m not usually like this, believe it or not.”

“I’ll believe that when I see it pal” she said, while a tight lipped smile formed on her face. She paused for a few seconds before she talked again “Ok, I guess we could start over… but you should know, I never give third chances. Are we clear on that?”

“Thank you… Yep, clear as crystal.”

PS: I am so sorry for posting so late this time!! I felt really uninspired, but now I’m back on track! πŸ˜€ Next post will be up much sooner than this one, I promise! I also wanted to thank Kym from Noble Doubt for giving me permission to use Leo’s band name from Generation 2 of her awesome legacy. Thank you so much!! ^_^

  1. First off, yay this is finally here! Secondly, I’m just about done with gen one of Noble Doubt (so late, I know XD) and you have given me an inadvertent spoiler from gen two, grr.
    I like Calla and Dylan’s bantering, if her current secret relationship doesn’t work out, I can kinda see them being together, hehe~
    Skye looks so pretty, something about her eyes reminds me of Rose. I’m surprised she’s going to give Jesse another chance at a fresh start since he didn’t show any signs of acting differently especially when he commented on how she looked when she walked in, lol. Owen’s a cutie, he seems nice. (random side note: Skye’s pinky looks broken in the screenshot when she’s talking to him, before he says he’s glad she came XD)
    Can’t wait to see where this goes!

    1. Ooops..!! I am so sorry about that! πŸ˜• But there’s so much more great and eventful stuff going on in generation 2 of Noble Doubt, that (hopefully) you won’t even remember my spoiler in a while πŸ˜‰
      Calla and Dylan are indeed cute together… hmm… maybe there will be a slight chance for something more in the future, we’ll see! πŸ˜‰
      Skye thought Jesse was being honest and more gentle for the first time when he approached her, and since she’s a friendly person herself, she couldn’t say no to a fresh start. But she’s not messing around!
      I hadn’t noticed the pinky πŸ˜‚ Man, now I will not be able to stop seeing it, lol!!

  2. Leeeeooooooo! ❀ ❀ I'm so geeked you used Accidental Therapy in your chapter! Thank you so much!

    Jesse sure knows how to put his foot in his mouth! LOL Methinks he should drink less. πŸ˜› Skye is being very generous toward him considering his behavior. I hope he doesn't have to beg her for a third chance.

    1. Leo!! ❀ Thank you so much for letting me use him for my story! ❀ πŸ˜„
      He *should* drink less, but I'm gonna cut him some slack this time, given that it was his birthday as he already told us lol!!
      Hmm… deep down you know he's gonna beg for a third chance, right? Haha!! πŸ˜‚ But maybe not so soon πŸ˜‰

  3. Gosh, it’s past 1 am and I just got done with my chapter, but I can’t say no to a new Darker Skies’ chapter!
    Yeah, I agree that somehow Skye turned out similar to Rose. But she’s very pretty! She pulls off blonde really well, too. I like Owen, too. He’s rather handsome, I think! LOL.
    Aah, Noble Doubt! Never such thing as too much appreciation for Kym’s wonderful story. And generation 2 was such a blast, I was there all the way as the chapters came β™₯ I remember wondering what was going on and then how she unfolded it all and my mouth gaped open. Are we all just gonna let our sims wear Accidental Therapy T-shirts? Haha, just like I said, though, Sam would probably think it’s stupid as are most things to him, LOL.
    A second chance. Hm, I wonder how this is going to work out this time!
    And Jesse, please don’t lose Jared’s award…I can’t even imagine!

    1. Oh man, does she really look similar to Rose? I used a totally different premade sim to make Skye (and it’s an important one too). Owen’s a cutie, I agree! 😁
      About the second chance… you’ll see, you’ll see! πŸ˜‰ Losing Jared’s award would probably mean the end of Jesse, lol!! Unlike him, his dad doesn’t play around! πŸ˜‚
      I agree about Noble Doubt! Such a blast to read! Sam would probably not appreciate those t-shirts though, you’re right lol!

  4. Is it wrong of me to ship Owen with Skye? I just hate the crude way Jesse talks to her, drunk or not. Owen’s my fave of the boys, he’s decent, polite and actually gets along with Skye. You don’t deserve a second chance with her, Jesse, screw you! I just hope he redeems himself because right now he’s acting like a real idiot. It’s like he only wants to be on good terms with Skye because she’s pretty -__-
    “Jesse quickly regained his speech, although it probably would be better if he hadn’t.” This perfectly describes my feeling every single time he opens his mouth!
    Anyways, as much as I am irritated with Jesse, loving the story so far ❀

    1. Haha, nope, it’s definitely not wrong, although their relationship might be doomed already! He’s very kind and polite but has some traits that could prove disastrous, and that’s all I’m going to say πŸ˜‰
      Jesse has a looong way to go to even begin being decent! Let’s hope he doesn’t screw things up for him or the band πŸ˜‰
      Thank you so much, I am so happy you like the story – since these are the first generation chapters, I feel like it’s a little all over the place – I hope to tie it up better in the next ones! ❀ ❀

  5. I am loving all of the difference couple dynamics. First off, I can see that there is more between Dylan and Calla than just playful teasing. He seemed way too upset about her date.
    Second, Jesse doesn’t know how to act around Skye because she is the first woman that hasn’t fallen for him.
    Last but not least, is it weird to be jealous of Jesse because I too want an Acidental Therapy album signed by Leo himself?!

    1. Hmmm interesting theory about Jesse and Skye..! He was certainly not his charmiest self when they met, but who is telling us that he’s not being like this with all women? Skye isn’t going to fall so easily, that’s for sure! πŸ˜‰
      And you might just be right about Dylan, there’s definitely more under the surface as far as him and Calla are concerned! 😁
      I would absolutely love an Accidental Therapy album signed by Leo too!! Not weird at all!! πŸ˜„ ❀ ❀

  6. I like Skye a lot. Anytime a girl stands up for herself and takes no shit from a jerkwad it makes me happy. I’d love to find out more about her! And I hope she gets said jerkwad to grow up a bit, assuming she sticks around long enough…
    I feel like the deal has a lot more incentive for him to keep away from her, at least until the year is off… After that I guess all bets will be off πŸ˜›

    1. Yep, Skye is fierce and she certainly doesn’t take Jesse’s shit. That’s what I love about her too πŸ˜‰ Let’s hope Jesse will grow up eventually, because right now he’s an obnoxious little brat lol!
      I was thinking about using that phrase, lol! Maybe all bets will be off before the year passes, although the stakes have risen dramatically now, haha!
      Thank you for your comment, it’s so nice to see you back here! ❀ ❀

  7. This was a fun chapter! Basil popped up right after I left a comment asking about him. He’s super cute too! I’m glad Emily is around for her little siblings! Owen is just too nice of a guy to be trying to talk to Skye. I feel like he’s developing feelings for her and I know Jesse is going to develop feelings for her. I feel like she might break up their friendship, even though it seems she has no interest in either of them romantically.

    1. Thank you! πŸ˜„ Basil is so good looking..! I love that he has taken a little bit of both Connor and Emma ❀
      Hmmm… maybe, maybe (about everything you said) πŸ˜‰ Skye is really slow in developing feelings for anyone (she has the unflirty trait), but eventually someone could catch her eye!! πŸ˜‰

  8. Aah, sorry for the late comment! I’ve finally finished school today so I won’t be so late next time, hehe.
    Anyway, Jesse you fool! Why must you be like this! You better get more respectful towards others *slaps him on the head with a virtual hand*
    Aww, I like Owen. He’s so nice! You should learn from your friend, Jesse. I’m sad though, because I don’t think Skye and him will end up together… And does Dylan like Calla? Is he one of those guys that tease their crush to get their attention? Hmm…
    Right now, I’m not very fond of Jesse, so I hope he becomes like his sister. I feel like he’s only apologising because she is pretty. He needs to grow up!
    Awesome chapter 😊

    1. Thank you so much! πŸ˜€ And no worries! πŸ™‚
      Haha, Jesse needs a slap and quick! Owen is way ahead of Jesse in terms of politeness – Skye can see that too!
      Maybe you’re right about Dylan! πŸ˜‰ But perhaps he still hasn’t realized that himself, lol!
      Jesse has a long way ahead. But Rose raised them right, so he has to have some good qualities hidden somewhere inside 😁 But he does need to grow up!
