2.06 – Strictly friends

Chapter tune: AC/DC – You shook me all night long

Warning: Profanity

“Fuuuck…. that was amazing” Jesse groaned while taking a drag on his cigarette.

Skye didn’t respond, as the combination of her sickness and what just taken place exhausted her, but caressed Jesse with her foot as a sign of approval.

Jesse truly meant what he just said. That was probably the best sex he’d ever had, and that made him wonder of all the things they could have done on that bed if she wasn’t sick. After promptly putting an end to those thoughts – as they made him excited all over again – , he smoked some more while looking at the snow falling outside the window and tenderly stroking Skye’s leg; this seemed to have a strangely relaxing effect on him.

He had decided that he’d deal with the fact that he just lost the bet – and the repercussions that went with it – in the morning, when he got home. Tonight had been pretty sweet to even bother filling his head with worrying thoughts.

He took her into his arms and gave her a soft kiss. “I mean it Skye… it was incredible.”

“It really was… but I feel so tired… is it okay with you if I go to sleep right now? I can’t keep my eyes open any longer…”

“Sure baby. Hey, do you mind if I hold you like this while we’re sleeping?” he said and grabbed her butt. He liked being childish like that sometimes, especially after sex. And especially with fun girls like her.

Skye chuckled. “You mean with your hand on my ass?”

“Well, yeah… it’s a very nice ass” he grinned.

“How fitting. You’re a very nice ass too” she smiled.

Jesse beamed at her retort. She had the ability to make those fake insults sound cute and sexy – when she wanted to. “Goodnight pokerface” he said gently and threaded his hand through her hair, bringing her closer. It was a cold night, that’s the excuse he gave to himself for wanting to feel her skin on his for the rest of the night.

“Goodnight ex-jerk” she purred.

The next morning Skye woke up alone. She wasn’t really surprised not to find Jesse next to her, as she was certain he was the type to bail the morning after.


What was surprising was the smell of something cooking that came from outside her bedroom.

Entering the kitchen, she found Jesse preparing what seemed to be pancakes – apparently they were going to have breakfast together.

“So you’re full of surprises” she said while sitting at the counter.

“Heeey, good morning to you too sleepyhead” he replied cheerfully “How are you feeling today? Your bread had gone stale, so I thought I’d make us some proper breakfast. It’s a good thing you still had eggs in your fridge. I, uh, hope it’s okay”

“I’m much better” she said “and it’s fine… but really, you didn’t have to do that.”

“But I had, you must get your strength back. Vito told me the other day that he’s booked several shows in town and possibly Bridgeport too, so we need you healthy. I’ve made you coffee and some orange juice too, it will help you get better.”

“Thank you… Wow, this looks good. I had no idea you knew how to cook. But I’ve seen your dad’s shows so I guess he’s taught you a thing or two”


“My mom taught me actually” he replied “my dad didn’t have much time for us back then anyway. And it’s not like I have any special cooking skills like my parents… To be honest, you’re looking at one of the few things I can make. But it’s my specialty” he said proudly.

“Oh, I see. So that’s the ritual”

“I don’t follow…”

“That’s the thing you do the morning after… you know, after you sleep with a girl”

“Well, I…”

“It’s fine, Jesse, really. In fact, I was hoping that this was the case and not something more.”

“…How so?”

“What happened last night was great… it really was. But it was wrong. I mean, we’re working together. And I’m not saying you forced me or anything, I wanted it too. But it was still a mistake. So I was hoping we could pretend like it never happened. In fact, can we agree to not tell the others about it? It will only complicate things…”

Jesse could not believe his ears. Not only did he get to sleep with Skye, he was also gonna get away with it. He had already been prepared to face the consequences of what he’d done, but this was so much more convenient.

“Sure baby! I mean, Skye. I mean… yeah. You have my word. But can we do it just once more? Like I said last night, it was pretty amazing. But I never got to show you any of my special moves” he winked at her, partly joking and partly being serious.

“What?! No! From now on, we’re strictly friends and nothing more. Do we have a deal?”

“Oh, come on..! Nobody has to find out” he said pretending to be hurt.

“Hey, I’m serious pal. Don’t make me use the favors you owe me for this, cause I’m gonna get pissed.”

“Okay, okay, I’m kidding! No more benefits, just friends. Although I know you’ll miss me eventually” he joked, but stopped abruptly when he saw the look on her face.

They finished up their breakfast, casually chatting and bantering like good old friends.

“So… I guess I’ll see you soon” Jesse said when they got up.

“Sure, thank you for the company… and for the pancakes, they were really good”

“Both of them are at your disposal anytime, just say the word” he smirked, turning on the charm.

“No, no more pancakes from you” she smiled “you should save those for somebody else. So, uh… have a good one”

Jesse took the elevator downstairs. He lit up a cigarette trying to process what had just happened.

He had just slept with the Skye, plus there was no way anyone would find out about it. This was perfect. Then why deep down did it make him feel like shit?

In fact, he realized he wasn’t feeling happy or, at least, relieved. He should, but he wasn’t. Not one bit.

  1. Well, it was bound to happen, wasn’t it? When there’s finally a girl who isn’t just taking his shit and setting boundaries, he has to want her. Great chapter πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you so much! πŸ˜€ Hehe, it surely was! Well, he’s a man, isn’t he? Lol! They both felt something that night, although Jesse might have felt more, or Skye doesn’t want to admit it for some reason… πŸ˜‰

  2. I am shipping them so bad! They won’t be able to stay away from each other and the fact that he is upset about it means a lot more than he wants it too. ❀️❀️❀️❀️

    1. I’m so glad you’re shipping them, I am shipping them so bad too, haha! ❀ ❀ For now they'll stay away, but I can promise you that this feeling will only get worse for Jesse from now on πŸ˜‰ Poor guy! 😁


  3. There could be two reasons why Jesse feels bad:
    1. Deep down he really likes Skye and was hoping for some sort of a miracle to happen and they start a relationship. And in one short conversation Skye dashed those hopes.
    2. He saw Mrs. White in her curlers again.

    1. Ok, I confess: it’s actually No.2! Lol! πŸ˜‚ I really wanted to include Mrs White in this chapter, but there was no room for her here (hmmm… maybe she could nag to Jesse about smoΔ·ing in her building… oh shoot)!
      Jesse really likes Skye deep down, you’re right! 😁 But even he hasn’t realized it yet. As for Skye, that still remains a mystery to be discovered..! πŸ˜‰

  4. Wow, wow – these two are quite the attractive couple, even though they aren’t ‘officially’ a couple yet… which I hope they shall be πŸ˜‰
    I like that Skye set her boundaries, and I have a feeling the more she pushes Jesse away, the more he’ll probably want her, since at the end there he’s already showing signs that he does. As for Skye, I’m not too sure where her feelings are yet…
    Great chapter!
    side note: that coffee looked really appetizing XD

    1. Thank you so much! πŸ˜„ ❀
      You are so right about Jesse, and it's only gonna get worse for him from now on… wouldn't wanna be him! Lol! πŸ˜‚ As for Skye, she's one big mystery, but you'll definitely learn more about her soon πŸ˜‰
      That coffee is one of the best looking coffees in the sims, I agree, lol! (I think it's from ATS3) πŸ˜€

  5. I really like that Skye was so firm with deciding to remain friends. She’s smart and knows her business. I have a feeling that Jesse wants her more than Skye wants him, but I think with time, especially after that ‘exciting’ night, that will change. I just hope it stays this way until the year is up…
    Great chapter!

      It's certain that Jesse wants Skye more than she wants him, although that seems to be the case currently…but you know Jesse won't be able to hold himself from screwing up, and he's certainly not gonna wait for the year to be over! πŸ˜‚

  6. When I see shots of Jesse smoking, I think to myself: “gosh, Sam, see, there is one thing for which I can be proud of you, my dear messed up heir.” Sorry, I just started cracking up when I thought about it.
    I opened the chapter and first thing I saw was Jesse with his head between Skye’s thighs and I thought “this went hard” LOL! At least they got to put on clothes before the photo session brought to us by Sempreviva πŸ˜‚ I was once reading some stupid stuff on the internet and it said that when you go to the bed with a woman and her bra matches her panties it means it was she who dragged you to bed, not you. As I looked at ill Skye in her lingerie I thought “how come she wears a bra at home when sick?” Who knows, really?
    Well, poor Jesse seems to have experienced the night rather strongly and boy, Skye must have her abilities for he has got quite a line of women that he slept with before her. Anyway, I feel like this will be the start of Jesse thinking seriously about one woman. And I also feel like there’s more to Skye not wanting to go ahead with the relationship rather than just job. We still don’t know much about her past, so I assume that we will find out eventually. And after all, she admitted to the sex being good, so the attraction and sparkles aren’t only on Jesse’s side. It takes two to tango πŸ˜‰

    1. Hahaha, at least Sam did one thing right, lol! Let’s see if Jesse can follow his example eventually (but only on the cigarette thing)!
      The line about the photosession cracked me up! πŸ˜‚ And “hard” is certainly one word to describe it, lmao! Hmmm, about the bra matching the panties… good point, good point! Who knows if it’s true with Skye, or if she found matching underwear while she was casually looking for something to cover her up after the deed, lol!
      Poor Jesse is starting to fall for her, you’re right, and it’s not like she’s gonna make it easy for him to get through to her… I feel kinda sorry for him already! πŸ˜• And you’re right about Skye too actually (psychic anyone? Lol)! She has her reasons to act this way as you will eventually find out πŸ˜‰

    1. Hmmm, I think you just might be right about that! πŸ˜‰ ❀ Jesse isn't used to hearing no, but of course that's not the only reason he's falling for her, I think it's the whole package lol! And she definitely won't make it easy for him! 😁

  7. I like these two. I think Skye might be the match Jesse needs. A girl that challenges him. I do think she has something in her past that holds her back from fully committing to relationships. Just a feeling I have. I do hope they can remain civil to each other. I’d hate to have Jesse need to steal his dad’s award because he lost the bet. I’m actually kind of mad at him for taking that bet. It wasn’t his to lose and for that reason he should have had a little more restraint.

    1. Your comment is actually very insightful! πŸ˜€ Skye does have issues from her past that might have left her a bit messed up, and they will be addressed pretty soon πŸ™‚ And you’re right about that bet, Jesse shouldn’t have taken it, and he certainly shouldn’t have lost it! Thank you so much for reading and commenting! ❀
      PS: I started reading your wordpress chapters, but I noticed that the stories are attached to your blogspot legacy, so I thought I should start with that, although I'm not sure I can like or comment on blogspot… but I will do that here soon! πŸ™‚

  8. You’re probably feeling shit because she’s pretty much dismissed you right out the gate and even though you think you’re cool with it you’re not! I wonder what her reasons are. I think they’re more than she said.

    1. Hehe, and it’s definitely gonna get worse! Poor Jesse (but not really, he’s probably done it to dozens of girls)! And yep, she does have her reasons to do this, which could be linked to her past πŸ˜‰
