2.04 – Kind of a date

Chapter tune: Queen – You and I

It was an unusually warm, winter Saturday afternoon. Owen had gone to his parents’ house back in Riverview to visit; so the band would not practice or perform that weekend. Jesse decided to go alone in the park and play for tips, as he sometimes used to do.

“That’s a nice song. We should play it live sometime” said a voice nearby. It was Skye.

“Hey… you’re here for the festival too?” Jesse said, while putting his guitar down.

“Yeah, I thought I’d check it out for once. Do you play for tips often?”

“Sometimes… it’s a cool way to get people to know me and come to our shows. Hey, now that you’re here, maybe you can sing along!”

“Thanks for the offer but I’ll pass” she smiled “I think I might be catching a cold and I really don’t want to strain my voice for no reason. I don’t see many people waiting for a show anyway, to be honest”

“Yeah… you’re right. I admit it’s been a slow day. So… I guess I’ll see you around”

Skye left to wander the festival alone. Even though they had declared truce at Jesse’s birthday, they still felt awkward around each other, maybe even more than before. Now they were neither friends nor foes.

As Jesse was getting out of the restroom, he spotted Amanda with some guy, who apparently was her boyfriend, the guitar player. Oh shit. He tried to pass by them without being noticed.

And he would have been successful at it, if that sudden feeling of jealousy he experienced before he even made the first step wasn’t so damn strong. So despite his initial intentions, he approached the couple.

“So, you’re going to the park now, huh? It’s funny, cause I remember I had to practically beg you to go with me!”

“Jesse? What… what the hell is your problem?”

“Who’s the clown?” the guy stepped in.

“Nobody important. Let’s just go, I told you it was a bad idea to come here” Amanda replied.

“Hey man, no offence but that’s between me and Amanda. Now if you don’t mind getting your hair out of the way, I was talking to her and it’s kinda blocking my view”

“Say that again” the man growled, and his tone made Jesse regret even laying his eyes on him.

20171213_003649.jpg

Right before things turned ugly for everyone, Jesse felt a set of arms tenderly hugging him from behind.

“There you are! I’ve been looking all over the place for you!” Once again, it was Skye. Her lips brushed against his ear and she whispered “Just go with it”

She then turned to Amanda and gave her a wide smile.

“Hello” she said cheerfully “are you Jesse’s friends? It’s so nice to meet you, I’m Skye”

“Yeah I know, you’re the new singer” Amanda said “I see that Jesse didn’t waste any time, not that I should be surprised. Well, good luck with him, you’re gonna need it”

“Aw, he’s not so bad. We actually just had our first fight, and you should see how upset he was about it. But it was totally my fault! I’m so sorry boo” she said and planted a kiss on his cheek.

“Now we have to go because he promised me we’d do every activity the festival has to offer. We shouldn’t be wasting any more time. It was nice meeting you, bye!” Skye grabbed Jesse and they prompty left Amanda and her guy before they had a chance to react.

“Wow, that was close… You certainly confused that ape. But… boo?” Jesse said as soon as they got far enough.

“What? I wanted to have a little fun while saving you from certain death. You’re welcome by the way. That guy was gonna break your legs or something, what were you thinking?”

“I don’t know… I just saw them and then… I guess I couldn’t control myself. Thanks for this. At least you admitted our fight was your fault” Jesse grinned.

“Hey, don’t push it. Now we have to do something together, at least until those two go away.”

So they did. They went for some apple bobbing and a tour at the haunted house together, and time passed without them even noticing.

“You know, I actually had a pretty great time with you today” Jesse said “…who would have known”

“You’re such a charmer” Skye joked “but, yeah, it was fun. You were right, you’re not a bad guy after all… I mean, when you’re not being an asshole”

“Come on, how much longer are you gonna make me pay for that night?” Jesse smiled “look, my sister just texted me that she needs the apartment; she’s having a date there so I can’t go home yet. Do you wanna hang out a little more? I was thinking of going to an awesome arcade I know. What do you say, wanna join me?”

“An arcade, huh? Sure, why not” Skye smiled.

Meanwhile, Calla was blissfully having her date, and things had just started to heat up.

“Hey… do you uh, wanna go to my room?” she asked between their increasingly passionate kisses.

“Oh baby, I’d love that” he replied breathing heavily.

But before they even had a chance to get up from the couch, the door bell rang.

“Oh shoot, who could this be? I’m so sorry… I have to get that. Don’t move, ok? I’ll be back in a sec”

Sure enough, Dylan was at the other side of the door.

“What the hell are you doing here?” Calla asked him furiously.

“Wow, you know how I love your mad face, and now you’re even greeting me with it? Thanks princess” he joked “I’m here to see your brother, is he here yet?”

“What are you talking about? Didn’t you get my message? I texted both you and Jesse that I need the apartment – alone. I’m having a date and we don’t want to be disturbed. So Jesse is not coming as you can hopefully understand”

“You texted me, huh… Nope, didn’t get any texts. But Jesse and I were to meet here so you see, I have to wait for him. It won’t take long, I promise”

Before Calla had a chance to reply, Dylan promptly got inside the apartment. “Oooh, what do we have here! Candles, a bottle of wine and a movie…very cozy, very romantic. Aww, you crazy kids! I approve.”

“Excuse me, but who are you?”

“This is Dylan, a friend of my brother’s. Dylan, this is Mortimer, my date.” Calla stressed this phrase like it was a piece of information that would eventually make Dylan go away. But of course, it didn’t.

“Hey man. So you’re the one our little princess got all dolled up about, huh? Well don’t mind me. Please continue with what you were doing, I won’t move or talk, I promise.” he said while sitting down.

Calla tried calling Jesse but there was no answer, so all three of them just sat there awkwardly for a while.

She wanted to insult Dylan badly for barging in like that, especially since she made it very clear that he needed to get the hell out of there, but didn’t want to show any sign of bad manners in front of Mortimer. So she stayed silent and secretly hoped that her brother would make an appearance soon.

After a while, Mortimer finally spoke. “Hey, would you mind if we called it a day? I’m pretty tired and I have to be at work tomorrow… very early too. But I’d really love to see you again soon.”

“You’re leaving?” Calla said disappointed “no, no I don’t mind… come on, I’ll show you at the door…”

“I’ll call you in a couple of days, as soon as I’m done with that project I was telling you about. …I had a great time” Mortimer said.

“I had a great time too” Calla replied charmingly.

As soon as Mortimer was out of the door, her usual self was finally released. “Dylan, you asshole!”

“What the hell was that? Why did you have to ruin my date?”

“What..? From what I heard, I really did you a favor babe. If he had to wake up early, he would… you know, and then he’d fall asleep right after – or even worse, leave”

“Ugh, Mortimer is nothing like you or my brother. He has manners. Do you know that his family is the oldest one in Sunset Valley? The Goths, I’m sure that you’ve heard of them”

“Ahh, they’re the creepy dudes who live next to the cemetery, right? Yeah, I’ve heard.”

“You’re impossible. He couldn’t be any more further from creepy. He’s handsome and a brilliant scientist, he’s older than us and way more mature than any of you, plus he comes from a good and wealthy family. He’d be a great catch for any girl. But he chose me” she smiled smugly.

“I don’t know about all this but from what I saw, he gave up pretty easily tonight. You know, if you were my girl, I’d wait up until my eyes started burning and I was about to pass out from exhaustion.”

“That’s because you’re desperate!”

“Maybe that’s it. Well, I don’t see Jesse coming any time soon, so I guess I’ll go after all” Dylan said and started making his way to the door.

“You’re such a dick, you ruined my date and now you’re leaving. Well, have an awful night!”

“Aww, right back at you. Nah, I’m kidding. Have a sweet and beautiful night princess. Don’t think about your nerdy boyfriend too much!” Dylan said, while leaving. Mission accomplished. At least for tonight. He couldn’t stop grinning, but was relieved that Calla would not be able to see that.

20171215_142737.jpg

“That’s the awesome place you were talking about? It’s filthy and looks really old” Skye said as soon as they arrived at the arcade.

“That’s the beauty of it. It has games you’ll never find in other places like it. It even has….”

“…Longhorns and Laser Beams? Whoa, that’s a classic! Sorry, I won’t be able to talk to you for a while” Skye exclaimed while running towards one of the arcade machines.

“You know it? You’re a geek after all, who would have known..! But good luck on trying to beat my awesome high score”

“You’re The Great J? Ok, remind me to mock you later about it. For now, prepare to be defeated! ….come on, get out of the way you stupid cow!”

A little later, Skye hadn’t been successful on beating Jesse’s high score.

“This is ridiculous! How did you even get that high, it’s impossible to reach it!”

“Well, I warned you. But since you’re kind of insinuating that I cheated, wanna play another game together?”

“Sure, whatever..!”

Jesse was clearly better than Skye at this game as well. He beat her fairly easily, and was actually enjoying seeing her angry expression each time his score got a little higher.

“Ok, I give up! This is the most stupid game I’ve ever played! I’m leaving!”

“Why? Aren’t you having a good time getting owned by The Great J?” he joked, but Skye wasn’t having it “Awww come on, let me give you a hug to make you feel better!”

“Don’t touch me!” she said, but the way she distanced herself made Jesse wonder for a moment if there were other reasons for this, apart from just being mad.

“Hey… one more game and we’re outta here, I promise. How do you feel about poker? We should make it more interesting though. We’ll play just one buy-in, and the loser owes the winner a favor. What do you say?”

“I’m not even gonna comment on the fact that you can play poker in this arcade. I don’t know… I’ve never played before. I don’t even know what buy-in means”

“It’s very easy, I swear. I’ll show you. In or out?”

“…Ok, I’m in” Skye grinned “but if we’re gonna do this… make it three favors”

PS: So here was another boring chapter… lol!! But next time things will start getting more interesting, I swear! 😁 I also wanted to make a request, does anyone know where I can find a female hairstyle with curlers/rollers on? Lol!! I have searched everywhere but they seem like they have disappeared from all places… I’m desperate! 😂 Thank you so much for reading!! ❤

  1. Wow, Skye saved him! That was close.
    Ahaha, Dylan is so hilarious. I wonder if one day Calla will eventually fall for him. I mean, that’s quite a determination he has. I’d appreciate it. Or maybe that’s just pure desperation 😂 By the way, I recognized Mortimer before you even said it was him. Does it show that I’ve been an addict for a long time?
    So Skye and Jesse are having a grand time. I wonder, though, if things will keep getting too well for these, too, Jesse is going to break his deal. But I don’t see Skye giving in that easily.
    Unfortunately, I don’t know about the rollers. But maybe someone will help you.

    1. Haha, I’m glad you like Dylan, I love him ❤ Well, Calla doesn't think a guy like Dylan is up to her standards, but maybe her heart will have its own opinion..? We'll see! (As I don't like to mess with the original sims history too much, you can easily guess who will Mortimer end up with 😉)
      Skye is a tough cookie to crack, you're right! It will not be easy to woo her, and although Jesse is kinda not allowed to do it, he's not one to always play by the rules!
      It's ok about the rollers, they're not that important – if I don't find it, maybe a towel turban hairstyle or something will do the job fine, lol!

    2. Oh, and I forgot to comment on recognizing Mortimer: not at all! 😀 He has some disctinct genetics, that’s for sure! I also really appreciate that you always know about the premades – at least in Sunset Valley and Twinbrook – because I love playing with them, haha!!

    1. Yep, Dylan is madly in love with Calla, but she might be the only one who doesn’t see it lol!
      Jesse and Skye are warming up to each other pretty quickly! 😉 Too bad that stupid boy has that bet going on..!

  2. Dylan is my favorite character, hands down. His interactions with Calla are so childish (I mean this in a good way). I love how he teases her and she gets annoyed. It’s cute.
    Also the hairband dude… I was getting like KISS vibes from him. Where did you even find that hair?

  3. Everyone else loving Dylan and here I am simply unimpressed by him. He might have a crush on Calla but ruining her date like that was so obtuse and freaking rude! Blundering jealousy does not look good on you, man! *takes a deep breath* Forgive me, I just have very low tolerance for silly boys 😛
    Anyways, I do like how Skye and Jesse actually had some good old fun together. Jesse is probably gonna find it hard to keep the bargain soon…

    1. Hehe, I actually like that you have a different opinion! 🙂 ❤ I guess his behavior was kind of silly and rude. He's probably a bit childish like Jesse, but at least he knows what he wants lol (even if he has a weird way of showing it)!
      Skye and Jesse are starting to like each other, and maybe you're right about the bargain too..! 😉 (Although Jesse really hates losing bets!)

  4. Haha I was just thinking that musician dude had interesting hair when Jesse told him to get it out of the way XD
    Skye is a cool chick! Pretty, loves games, and she even came to bail Jesse out of an almost disastrous situation.
    I’m still rooting for Dylan and Calla to get together, but I don’t think him making her mad by ruining her dates is the best way to get there, lol. Speaking of Calla she looked so pretty here 🙂 I feel like I can get an idea of the favors Jesse would ask for, but I have no idea what Skye would request.
    This wasn’t a boring chapter at all btw! I quite enjoyed the light heartedness of it.

    1. Also, I’m kind of late since I wen’t straight to sleep after posting my chapter so I don’t know if you’ve found it yet but this file has a package that has socks, a sweater and hair rollers I believe. This is the download link: http://www.simfileshare.net/download/37692/
      And if you want to see how it looks, you can scroll down this page and see it: https://sunnyccfinds.tumblr.com/search/roller

    2. Thank you so much!! ❤
      Lol, no matter what Jesse said, I freakin' adore that hair lol!! But, Jesse wanted to keep being Jesse and make fun of it 😂
      Yep, Skye is cool! She has her flaws as we'll see, but that's the main vibe I wanted from her, so I'm very happy you said that! 😄
      Ah, Dylan. Kind of a buzzkill for Calla, but maybe seeing that text got him to panic juuust a little bit..!
      Haha, let's hope Skye wins that game, cause I don't trust Jesse with those favors! 😁

  6. OMG…. I’m LMBO! This chapter was anything but boring. lol

    “Who’s the clown?” And the entire hair thing had me rolling. And then Skye rescuing Jesse was so funny, too.

    Dylan was so silly and hilarious. I really enjoyed this and needed this laugh today. Thank you so much. ❤

      Things are going to get more serious later, but I really hope to be able to write scenes like this too in the future (since Jesse has the good sense of humor trait, I figured this generation should be a bit funnier than the previous one)! ❤ ❤

  7. Jesse and Skye are starting to warm up to each other. It was very sweet of her to rescue him at the park. Things are heating up, and soon we will have some sparks.
    And I know that it was not a coincidence that Dylan showed up after Calla texted him to stay away. He has it bad for that girl.

    1. He sure has it bad for her, and you’re right it was no coincidence! 😉 But maybe it wasn’t the best way to make Calla warm up to him, we’ll see..! 🙂
      About Jesse and Skye, it is very possible that we’ll have those sparks soon (although that bet is getting in the way)! 😉 ❤

    1. Bad news, it doesn’t let me have more blogs than 50 listed, and it goes by most recent date that I followed…
      Well, I guess this means I should erase that widget and make a proper blogroll page on my own..! 🙂

  8. Ahaha, that guy with the wild hair looks so so fabulous! I liked how Jesse insulted his hair, it made me like him a tad bit more for a weird reason!
    And it’s nice of Skye to rescue him from a rough situation, especially acting like his girlfriend. Maybe later on, she won’t need to act 😉
    I felt truly sorry for Mortimer and Calla. It was very rude for Dylan to just barge in there and ruin their date! I can completely understand why she was furious with him, I would be too, but probably on the next level! I know he likes Calla, but that is no way to win her heart! He came off as kind of a jerk… But he does seem to have a good sense of humour, so that’s a bonus to get him higher than Jesse, haha!
    It’s nice to see the good side of Jesse, where he isn’t angry, or being a player, or drunk. If he remains that way, I would definitely be okay with him!
    This chapter wasn’t boring at all, I found it very entertaining!
    Awesome chapter ❤

      Dylan came off as kind of a jerk, you’re right, but let’s hope he’ll make up for it in the future!
      Just like Jesse, although he has a longer path towards redemption I suppose 🙂 Skye is a bit tougher than Rose, but Jesse isn’t as bad as Jared has been… I think, lol! So maybe they’ll be a good match in the future! 😀
      I’m so glad you liked that chapter, thank you so much!! 😄 ❤

  9. Okay, so first of all Dylan is gross and creepy and manipulative. Even if Mortimer isn’t a good catch for Calla, ruining her chances of finding out for herself and trying to shut off all options except for him is SUCH a douchebag move that is always done because the guy things he’s being romantic >.> it’s just controlling behaviour and doesn’t bode well for any future relationship that grows. I hope Calla kicks him in the nuts. At least once…
    Also, why do I have a feeling Skye is either going to lose outright or is playing him and is actually awesome at poker and can like card count and stuff?

    Liked by 1 person

    1. Hmmm… good point on that whole behavior, that was controlling! I agree… the fact that he’s in love with her doesn’t excuse him for doing this! Let’s hope he grows up soon 🙂 You know what, it would be fun if Calla kicked him in the nuts, lol! I can actually picture her doing it! 😂
      Skye is definitely not awesome at poker, but what a cool idea! Oh well, another opportunity missed! Thank you so much for your comment! 🙂

      1. Dylan is so crystal clear . The tone he expresses his disregard for this relashionship . He took the freedom of judging what is wrong or good for Calla. And it’s been a long time he has eyes on her.

        1. Yep, that was not very polite of him, that’s for sure… maybe he panicked, maybe he thought he’d somehow make her notice him. But Calla is totally blind towards his affection, at least for the time being! 😉

          1. Second reason is maybe the right one if a guy starts to have a such behaviour make sure it’s for Calla noticed him and have her attention. Jessie’s friends are clumsy in relashionship in a certain way.

        I took this pictures for my lastest part The Cursed Spring Cupid .The relashionship between Jason and Miss V isn’t kinda here.

        Take your time before reading I got two blogs and it’s not quite easy to understand my universe, all notions to keep in mind. Even in short stories you learn my universe because it’s all a world.
