2.13 – Bad news

Chapter tune: Thin Lizzy – Jailbreak

Spring had come in full bloom when the day Skye would meet Jesse’s parents finally arrived. She was feeling more and more anxious as the moment was getting closer, but of course she wouldn’t show it.

“I never thought you’d own such a girly top baby” Jesse smirked when they were finally standing at the doorway “Did you buy it just for today?”

“What? No! I own girly clothes, I just… I never wear them.”

“Yeah, right” Jesse said amused “Admit it, you bought it to meet my folks! You wanna make a good impression..!”

“No I didn’t!”

“I’m just teasing you baby! You look really beautiful… like always.”

Skye gave him a playful smile. “You’re a jerk… but a cute one, I’ll give you that. ..thank you.”

Just before they were close enough to ring the bell, Jared and Rose – who probably saw them approaching through the window – opened the door.

“Welcome to our home” Rose said “It’s so nice to finally meet you Skye, I’ve heard so much about you!”

“Likewise” Skye replied “It’s so nice to meet you too. You have a beautiful house”

Out of the blue, Rose pulled Skye into a hug, not being able to contain her excitement any longer. “You are a sweetheart! I’m so thrilled to finally see you in person!” Skye returned the hug, albeit feeling a little awkward with this sudden burst of emotions. Still, it made her feel strangely warm inside, something she could well get used to feeling.

Then it was Jared’s turn to greet her. “Nice to meet you Skye” he grinned “So, help me clear something up here; how did this one ever manage to end up with a doll like you?”

Skye just stared at him, unsure of how to respond. “Jared!” Rose exclaimed, clearly embarassed. “Gee, thanks dad” Jesse muttered, almost at the same time.

“Ah, I’m just messing with them babe. So c’mon, the food is almost ready!”

Calla had already arrived and, since it was a particularly nice day, they all decided they should eat outside.

“Wow, this tastes so good. Did you make it Mr Frio?” Skye asked, after the food was served.

“No doll, this is all my beautiful wife’s cooking. She wanted to make everything by herself for you.”

“Oh, I’m so sorry, I thought…”

“It’s ok sweetie. Thank you for your compliment, I’m very happy you like it” Rose smiled “There’s plenty, so don’t hesitate to ask for more”

“If you want to taste my cooking, you should both come at the restaurant” Jared said “You know you’re always invited. How long has it been son? I have a new special menu inspired by your mom and her favorite recipes, I think it’s my masterpiece!”

“Yeah sure… we’ll drop by sometime” Jesse mumbled.

“We’ll definitely come” Skye said, seeing the slight disappointment in Jared’s face.

“So how’s Emily and Basil? And uncle Connor and aunt Emma? I haven’t talked to them in a while” Calla asked.

“Everyone’s fine princess” Jared replied “Emily’s managing the restaurant right now. Sunday is a busy day, so she couldn’t be here unfortunately. She told me to say hello though. And Basil is actually coming home next month.”

“He’s finishing college already? Wow, how time flies! You should definitely meet him Skye, he’s so funny! Him and Jesse together make quite a pair! And they used to jam together a lot too, he plays the bass. I’m sure you’ll adore him!”

“I can’t wait to meet him” Skye said with a wide smile.

“We’ll make plans as soon as he gets here” Jesse beamed “I admit that guy’s even funnier than I am!”

“You’re so modest” Calla teased her brother “Yeah he is, because he doesn’t have your mood swings”

“Oh, is that right?”

“Okay, stop it you two” Jared interrupted them “So, Skye. Tell us more about yourself, where are you from?”

“Dad, what’s with the third degree?” Jesse interrupted him, sensing that Skye wouldn’t want to talk about herself. She hadn’t even shared any details from her past with him yet.

“It’s okay Jesse…” she replied, caressing his hand under the table. It was unclear if she did that to soothe just him, or herself too. “I’m originally from Twinbrook, although it’s a long time since I’ve been there”

“Really? Rose is originally from Twinbrook too, what a coincidence!” Jared said excited “Well, if all girls from Twinbrook are anything like my lovely wife, then Jesse is one hell of a lucky guy, am I right son? What is your last name doll? Maybe Philip has heard of your family!”

“I knew everyone there” Philip agreed.

Skye was terrified. She couldn’t share her real name. Everyone in Twinbrook knew of her messed, screwed up family – if that joke could ever be called a family. Why did she have to tell them the truth about her place of birth? She could easily say any other place and it wouldn’t make a difference.

“It, uh… it’s Grayson.”

“Grayson… hmm… doesn’t ring a bell. Well, you got me there Lily, I don’t know of any Graysons in Twinbrook… I guess I don’t really know everyone it seems… although your face does strike me as kind of familiar somehow.”

“Dad” Rose said lovingly – although a bit worried too – “Her name is not Lily, it’s Skye.”

“Well isn’t that what I said?” Philip asked Jared.

“I’m sorry sweetie, my father gets a little confused with names sometimes.” Rose said to Skye. “Now if you’ll all excuse me, I’m going to finish up a strawberry pie I’ve  been preparing for dessert”

“Um… can I help you with that Mrs Frio? I know it’s your specialty and I’d really like to see how you make it” Skye asked. The truth was, she desperately needed to get away from that table, so the conversation about her family wouldn’t have to carry on any longer.

“Of course you can! Oh, if I only knew it, I wouldn’t have prepared most of it in advance… but it’s okay, next time I’ll make it from scratch for you to see it… come with me, sweetie”

While Rose and Skye went to the kitchen, Jared and Jesse got up for a smoke.

“So… Skye” Jared said “she seems like a nice kid. I can see why you have a soft spot for her”

“Well, as a matter of fact, she’s perfect” Jesse replied.

“Nobody’s perfect son. But I know what you mean. And I really like her. Your mom does too, I can tell. Although she doesn’t talk much, does she?”

“She talks, but I think today you did enough talking for everyone”

“I guess that’s true” Jared laughed “You should care for her, son. She looks like a girl who has been through much.”

Jesse kept silent. He knew his father was right, although he still had no idea about the kind of the things she had been through.

“So, uh… dad. Since you liked Skye, and you can clearly see why I like her so much, I wanted to talk to you about something”

“Sure son, shoot”

Jesse started explaining to his dad everything about the bet, and how he eventually lost it and how now he owed Vito the award. Jared’s face started becoming red with anger while hearing everything.

“Are you fucking insane? How the hell did it even occur to you that I’d give up my award?”

“I didn’t think I’d lose the bet dad, I’m sorry! You should see Skye then, she hated my guts! I believed there was no chance with her anyway, not in a million years! And Vito threatened to leave the band, what was I supposed to do?”

“That is not my fucking problem!”

“I’m sorry! I really fucked up this time, okay?”

Jared’s face suddenly calmed down. After a short pause, he talked.

“Fuck… can’t say I don’t know what that’s like, son. Look, Vito shouldn’t have made you take that bet. And you shouldn’t have agreed with him son, the award wasn’t yours to lose. But what’s done is done… what you did for your girl was the right thing to do. And don’t worry about Vito, I’ll deal with him personally when he gets back, alright?”

“Sure… thanks dad. You know, everything turned to shit with the band because of that bet… but I don’t care, I just wanna be with her. I’m thinking of asking Basil to join… we’ll see. I’m really sorry for messing up with your award though, I know how much you love that thing…”

“I love you more than that thing son, but don’t go around betting my stuff again, okay? Now say, what did you ever do to that girl to hate you when you first met?”

“Well, I was really late for a live show with the band and I was kinda speeding up…”

“Of course”

Later in the afternoon, Rose and Jared were cleaning up and Philip went for a nap, so the three kids stayed outside for a cup of coffee.

“What the hell is this shit you’re drinking sis?”

“Hey..! It’s coffee with cinnamon sticks and some marshmellows… I can’t stand the scent of coffee alone”

“Then why aren’t you drinking something else?”

“To keep me from falling asleep, silly! Especially after all this food. You know Skye, Jesse had a thing for a barista when he was a teen and whenever he ordered coffee from her – everyday, that is – she kept putting sugar inside. The poor thing always drank it with no complaint, hoping that would be enough to get him into her pants!”

Skye laughed hard. “And did he, eventually?”

“Nah, I think she was in her mid twenties, so she probably saw him as a kid. But he was quite good looking already, if you count out the mustache growing period. Has my brother shown you any photos of that time? I think we got plenty of those here!”

“Really? I can’t say that I’ve ever seen any old photos of him… and I can’t say that I don’t want to” Skye smiled mischievously.

“Don’t you dare!” Jesse glared at his twin.

“Too late!” Calla said, while jumping out of her chair. As she was busy digging out old family photo albums – despite Jesse’s threats – Jesse and Skye decided to relax in the garden, next to the fountain, as Rose had turned that place into a small heaven.

“I had such a great time today…” Skye sighed “I wish this day would never end. Your mom is the sweetest person I’ve ever met and your dad… he’s really something. And he loves you and your mom so much.”

“Yeah, he’s alright.”

“No, he’s great. I don’t understand why you brushed him off when he invited us at the restaurant.”

“Well, it’s… he still treats me like a little kid sometimes.”

“Well, maybe that’s because you behave like a little kid sometimes.”

“It’s not just that… I know this will probably sound lame, but… look, he does love my mother very much. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a couple so much in love – it’s disgusting sometimes when I realize we’re talking about my parents – but despite that, he has hurt my mom really bad in the past. And I saw it. As it turned out it was nothing but still… it blew. And you know… when someone so much in love does that, it makes me wonder if the rest of us poor bastards even stand a chance for something real… I know, it’s pretty lame. But whenever I see him I think about what I saw that night”

“Did he cheat on your mom?”

“No, he just kissed someone. Well, she kissed him but he didn’t do anything to stop her – that’s his story anyway”

“Your mom obviously believed him, and I don’t take her to be stupid or gullible. And you know, he probably still regrets what he did. He’s only human Jesse… No human is perfect.”

“You are.”

Skye smiled, although her eyes were suddenly filled with sadness. “I’m not perfect Jesse… in fact, I’m very, very far from it. I know I promised to tell you all about Bridgeport and my family but I didn’t want to ruin this… so tell me if you still think I’m perfect when you know everything.”

Jesse kissed her tenderly. “Don’t ever think that you’ll say anything that will make me stop loving you” he whispered.

They stayed silent for a while, trying to take in as much from the scenery and scents of Rose’s flower garden as possible, before they had to leave for Skye’s crappy apartment.

“We can come back here whenever you like baby” Jesse said while caressing Skye’s hair.

“I’d really love that” she replied “after we visit your dad’s restaurant”

“Whatever my girl wants. Do you want to go inside for a bit before we leave?”

“Of course I do.”

Before they got to the living room, Jared’s furious voice was heard: “THAT FUCKING SON OF A BITCH!”

They both rushed inside. “Dad! What happened?!”

Jared nodded for them to look at the tv. “That mother fucking psycho should rot in hell and they just lost him like that!”

One officer is dead from last night’s jailbreak at Twinbrook’s high security prison facilities. The police is currently looking for known criminal Sinbad Rotter who broke free and is believed to have remained in Twinbrook or its close neighbor Sunset Valley. Citizens are required to not speak with him if they spot him, but call the police immediately instead.

“Dad? Mom? Who the hell is this?” Calla asked, confused.

Jesse noticed that Skye’s face had turned pale, and she was shaking. Something was terribly wrong. He embraced her tenderly. “Baby… what’s wrong? Who is that man?”

She shrugged in an attempt to get his arms off of her, something she had not done before, not even at her worst moments. Tears were streaming down her cheeks and her voice was broken. “He’s… my nightmare”

  1. Yaay, new chapter. Uh-oh, seems like it isn’t going to be long before Skye’s secrets have to come out. I think there was a stepfather of hers mentioned at one point, so… I’m guessing that’s Sinbad? Interesting – can’t wait to see what’s up with her past. I feel like we’re finally getting close ๐Ÿ˜€
    This was great as always and those garden scenes were so lovely! โค

  2. Well, I’m barely alive after the binge-reading I treated myself to me, but when I noticed your new chapter in my Reader, I just couldn’t resist!
    It was great to see Jared and Rose again. Rose looks a bit like a housewife, but whatever, that dress is still cute on her. And it’s weird to see Skye in such decent clothing. Woah, that shot with Jared and Jesse smoking. Like father, like son indeed. He loves him, though, and I’m glad he forgave him for putting up his award as a win for a bet. This Jared is not the hot-tempered Jared I remember. Calla is all about embarrassing her brother, haha. Maybe I would do the same if my brother found a girlfriend. That’s yet to happen, but who knows.
    Oh wow. SINBAD is her father? God, no. I didn’t expect it! Funny thing is he worked with Sam at one point. In one of my stories they formed a plan with Goodwin to trick Jenni that she has a baby with her ex-boyfriend Marc Brandt so Goodwin would be out of trouble. And he got with Amy Bull. But I don’t think he was with Amy in your story…I can’t guess who Skye’s mother is. But no, so much trouble ahead!!!

    1. Lol at your comment about Rose looking like a housewife! ๐Ÿ˜ I wanted her to look a little older than how she looked at gen1’s finale, but not too old ๐Ÿ˜‰ That’s the reason for Jared’s beard too..!
      Jared does love his kids, and he’s more mellow than how he used to be in the past, that’s true! His old self would have beaten Jesse down to a pulp, lmao!
      I love Calla’s relationship with her brother, they’re always up for teasing each other!
      Sinbad is her step-father to be exact! ๐Ÿ˜‰ You’ll see who her mother is very soon! Definitely not Amy Bull, lol! And yes… there’s definitely a lot of trouble ahead! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

        I and my brother always tease each other, too!
        Ooh, a step-father. Can’t wait to meet her parents. Here is my version of Sinbad if you would like to take a look. I’ve also redone Tristan Van Gould, Bailey Swain, Goodwin Goode and Claire Ursine. I don’t play with townies that much, though.

  4. Damnnnnn. When Sinbad popped up, I immediately knew he was Skyeโ€™s father! I wonder what Jared has to do with him?
    Also, does Jesse know Skyeโ€™s last name? If not, it really is strange how he doesnโ€™t even though theyโ€™ve been together for a while, and if he doesnโ€™t even know her full name, what other big secrets does she hide?
    I completely agree with Skye saying how Jesse acts like a child and thatโ€™s why his father treats him like one, since he really does act immature a lot! However, Jared did the exact same thing when he was young, so maybe he shouldโ€™ve raised Jesse better… Iโ€™m not sure though, personality does run through the blood, but I think there was still a way to prevent that! Rose is such an innocent, nice girl, so I wouldโ€™ve thought that some of her personality wouldโ€™ve stuck with him. Hmmm, oh well. Itโ€™s very hard to be a great parent!
    Also, Rose is so pretty! Even though I can see her aging, sheโ€™s still so beautiful!
    Great chapter โค๏ธ

    1. Yep, that’s him! Or Skye’s step-father to be exact, her father is still not mentioned ๐Ÿ˜‰ Sinbad was the one who sent Jared to that hospital in Twinbrook – after the night Rose met her aunt and got drunk ๐Ÿ˜‰
      That’s right, Jesse’s doesn’t even know Skye’s last name… this can’t be good for their relationship!
      Hmmm, Rose’s over-emotional side might have stuck with Jesse… other than that, he’s more like his dad, you’re right! I think both him and Calla are just a tad spoiled, but nothing too much. And I think he has improved a lot since the first chapter, lol!
      I missed seeing Rose so much! It’s too bad that she and Jared have to age! ๐Ÿ˜ญ Oh well.

  5. I had a little bit of a panic when I saw your post read “Bad News”. Then I realized that it was the name of the chapter.
    It was so nice to see Jared and Rose again., and I am happy to see that her father is still around. I just wish that we could have seen the akward Jesse pictures too.
    I actually forgot that Jesse saw his dad kissing that other woman. I can see why there would be some distrust between them.
    And bombshell: Sinbad is Skye’s father!! I guess her secret is out!!

  6. Aww yeah, Jared and Rose, aka the cutest couple ever who are aging quite nicely, make a return~ ;P
    This was such a blissful day. Jesse and Skye’s relationship is developing along beautifully, there are so sweet around one another ๐Ÿ™‚ And Calla is doing exactly what any sibling would do, sharing embarrassing photos and stories XD I love her, haha.
    It was touching when Jared said he loves Jesse more than his award, which of course any parent would, but still, it was nice to see him forgive Jesse so easily. I’m glad that’s the last of that unwise bet we are probably going to hear. Now Jesse can relax and focus on Skye without any secrets on his end… Speaking of which, Skye lying about her last name is probably not going to go unnoticed for long considering what happened at the end there :/ I wonder what Sinbad did to be put in jail, considering the fact one officer died during his escape I wouldn’t put it past him to be a murderer, if not he’s still a rather dangerous criminal. Skye was hoping to have some time of peace before his release, but it looks like that is no longer the case since he’s out and about now… I can’t wait to find out what exactly her story is ๐Ÿ˜€
    Great chapter! โค

      Skye's secrets are about to be all out, and very soon!
      Hmmm, you're right about Sinbad… Considering he almost killed Jared in the past – with a little help, but still – I think he's capable of anything! He should not be meant to be released anyway! Skye is facing a very dark future if she and her step-father ever meet… her story is on the way!

      1. Yeah Iโ€™m looking forward to seeing that Jared x Vito confrontation. I was going to ask – judging from Jaredโ€™s reaction, I was able to piece together that Sinbad and his goons were the ones who put him in that frightening k.o way back in twinbrook. (Plus you just confirmed it ๐Ÿ˜†) But that didnโ€™t land them in jail right? Iโ€™m assuming Sinbad is in for something else? (I was gonna go back an re-read that confrontation but I donโ€™t remember which chapter it was ๐Ÿ˜…)

    I agree with my sisterโ€™s comments on Jesse not knowing Skyeโ€™s last name and Jaredโ€™s immature behaviour rubbing off on his son. It does seem like Calla got her fatherโ€™s strongheadedness though! I was surprised Jared didnโ€™t rage at Jesse, so props to him for largely keeping his cool. Iโ€™m not sure itโ€™s going to go so well with Vito though…
    Oh boy, Skye has got a murderer for a stepfather ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I feel really bad for her, she is obviously terrified of him. Iโ€™m very worried how Sinbad is going to come into play in the story, and also what his involvement was in Skyeโ€™s hidden past.

  9. Hmm, Phillip thought her name was Lily. Maybe he did recognize her.

    It was great that Jared tried to be real with Jesse and remind him no one is perfect. Skye said it herself, too, but it didn’t seem to get through to him. I think Jesse ignores how much he doesn’t know about Skye because it helps him keep his perfect image of her. Jesse idolizes her way too much, and it shows that he’s never been serious about someone before her. He still doesn’t understand how healthy relationships work.

    I’m glad Jared was furious about the bet. It was a stupid decision of Jesse’s, and maybe he can understand that now.

    Sinbad Rotter is definitely a notorious name. He would have to be one of the worst stepfathers imaginable.

      You are so right about Jesse being immature and not having a clue about healthy relationships. He’s put Skye on a pedestal and that never turns out good..!

    Poor Skye though. I hope she’s going to be safe. He doesn’t know where she is though, at least not in this moment of time, so there’s that.
    I’m surprised Jared wasn’t more cross at the bet. I would be. But maybe he’s grown more forgiving and patient in his old age ๐Ÿ˜›

      Hmmm… maybe he doesn’t know where she is yet… or doesn’t he? ๐Ÿ˜ˆ
      Jared has evolved for sure – and he adores his son even if he doesn’t show it very often. He has pretty much effed up in the past too so he understood Jesse’s sentiment there ๐Ÿ˜
