Chapter 10

Writer Notes: Happy late Simsmas!

Warnings: mostly dialogue, inner thoughts, caption-less photos, Gilbert Jacquet, plottiness, lingerie, punishment, and teenagers.

1

Donna Cove wasn’t stupid.  She used her eyes.

2

Malcolm used her, but she didn’t know why or for what purpose.

3

She didn’t have many friends and a lot of that was her fault.

4

Reminders were literally everywhere.

5

Donna wondered if Lazlo knew Crystal Vu wasn’t as innocent as she made out.

6

Donna wasn’t innocent either, but she was resourceful.

7

“Titania?”

8

Perhaps she had to make a mess to clean it up.

9

“Donna, I’m so glad you came!”

10

“I can’t stay long.” she replied.  “Malcolm has spies everywhere, but I need your help.”

11

Titania smiled.  “I knew you would.”

***

12

Nina Caliente wasn’t exactly a socialite like her sister, but she was appealing.

13

At least she thought so.  She never had a problem with insecurity and wondered why her sister did.

14

Perhaps it was confidence.  Perhaps it was because Nina took charge.  She didn’t know, but she did know she looked absolutely hot.

15

“Why are you pouting?” she asked her sister.  “Tonight we’re going to have fun!”

“Sure.” Dina frowned.  “It’s just…bad timing.”

16

“You have to get over it.” Nina said.  “It’s not like anyone is allowed to see her.”

17

“It’s not just that.” Though even Dina thought it was ridiculous that Malcolm Landgraab forbid anyone to see “Bella” while they were shooting the movie.  “It’s also the anniversary of…Michael’s…”

“His death, Dina.” Nina finished for her with a sigh.  Why couldn’t she say it? Michael had been dead for years.

18

“I don’t want to go out.”

“You’re going.” Nina sighed again.  “And so is Brandi. We’re going to have a good time tonight.”

19

But even Nina didn’t quite believe it herself.

20

Brandi was Dina’s friend that she met in her widower group, but Nina thought she was ok.  She just didn’t like her kids.

21

***

22

She brought them to Crypt O’Night Club.  Her friend, Rainelle, was watching over the bar tonight for her employers the Tricous.

23

24

25

“Kaylynn!” Nina shouted over the music.

“Why is she here?” Dina hissed.

“The more, the merrier?” Nina rolled her eyes at her sister.

26

Kaylynn was a nice girl, but she was shy.  Nina had no idea why.  She thought Kay was absolutely beautiful.

27

Nina handed her a camera.  “Get lots of photos tonight. I want to remember this one.”

28

Dina gave up and let herself get lost in the music, but Brandi couldn’t.  Her mind was elsewhere.

29

Which left her open to “romantics” like Ajay Loner.  “Girl, you’ve struck me dead with three lightning bolts.”

30

Brandi wasn’t ready for the dating scene again.  Sometimes she still forgot that Skip was dead.

31

 ***

32

“Brandi?”

33

“Are you ok?” Dina asked.

“No, not really.” she replied.  “I know that Nina’s just trying to help us get our minds off…Skip and Michael, but…I’m not ready.”

34

“I know the feeling.” Dina smiled.  “Why don’t we get out of here?”

“Without Nina?”

35

“She won’t even notice we’re gone.”

36

She didn’t.  And maybe in the end, she regretted bringing them in the first place.

“Rainelle’s still in contact with Malcolm Landgraab.” Jon Smith Tricou grinned.  “She needs to be punished.”

53

“I think I can help with that.” Jennicor returned the grin.

54

55

“Jennicor,” Kvornan entered without knocking.  “Titania is here.”

56

“What ever for?” she asked.

“She would not tell me.”

57

“Jon, will you please continue punishing Rainelle for me until I return?”

“Of course, my love.”

58

Titania Summerdream was like family to the Tricous.

59

At one time, they might have actually joined families.  Gvaudoin and young Puck had only dated for a couple of weeks, but during that time her grandmother and his mother had already planned their wedding and names for their future children.  Gvaudoin broke up with him promptly after learning this information.  He was upset, but understood.

60

“Titania, it’s been too long!”

61

 

Their friendship was solid.

62

It was built over centuries of fighting witch hunters and vampire executioners.  In this world, the only way to survive was to have powerful friends.

63

Titania was most certainly powerful.

64

“What brings you here?” Jennicor asked.

“I have news.”

65

“I met with Donna Cove yesterday.” Titania answered.

“That actress portraying Bella?”

66

“Malcolm is attached to her.”

“Why wouldn’t he be?” Jennicor questioned.  “He obsessed about the real Bella since her career began. If it wasn’t for Mortimer, I imagine he would have tried to seduce her long ago.”

67

Titania smiled. “But if we got Donna Cove on our side…”

“We could control Malcolm.” Jennicor laughed.

68

“Gvaudoin, dear, someone’s approaching the door.” Jennicor called.  “Will you please answer it?”

69

She gladly accepted.

70

Between her cousin and her ex, Gvaudoin was more than uncomfortable.

71

Perhaps that was too premature.

72

“Ripp Grunt.” she narrowed her eyes.  “What do you want?”

73

“Hello?” he chuckled.  “I want to see if you wanted to catch a movie with me, Johnny, and Ophelia?”

74

“Why?” she asked.

“I don’t know.” he smirked.  “To have a good time with some friends?”

“Gvaudoin, who are you talking to?” her mother called.

75

She introduced him to her parents, but wasn’t happy.  Perhaps he was nice, but Gvaudoin just found him frustrating.  When had his interested in her began?  Perhaps she shouldn’t have marked him during that painting session.

76

Perhaps she should have been paying attention to their conversation.

“Of course she can go out to the movies with you.” Nylissit said.  “Have a good time.”

***

77

She didn’t understand the movie, Werewolf in SimValley, and why all the other sims were having such a good time.  Most of them hadn’t even watched it.

78

Angela and Dustin talked about the future and college.

79

Lilith complained how stupid it was and how fake everything looked.  She was one of the first to leave the theater.

80

Mercutio’s date, Melody Tinker, talked about how they made the models the whole time.  Romeo and Juliette sat in the back making out.

81

Nervous ran out of the theater.  Erin followed, of course.  Natasha and John were late to the movie because she couldn’t decide on munchies.  The theater didn’t sell grilled cheeses.

82

Then Johnny, Ophelia, and Ripp.  They actually watched the movie and Ripp retold most it in dramatic fashion.

83

“What’d you think?” he asked her.

She shrugged.  “It was boring.” What she wanted to say was: it was a disgrace.  Gvaudoin was half-lycan.  They weren’t savages like the movie showed.

84

“Well, maybe we can find something that won’t bore you?”

85

Why wouldn’t he just leave her alone?

Additional: In each chapter, I will try to feature a career that Pat Newbie is working on to keep with the Bustin’ Out theme.  In this chapter her featured career was Counter Culture.  You can find information about Bustin’ Out and the main story’s careers HERE.

    Yay!!! I’ve been waiting for an update. This chapter didn’t disappoint. I’m curious to see how it all turns out with this Donna Cove.

  2. Person says:

    cool where are those shorts that blondes wearing in the club

  3. robber says:

    who are the guys making out?

  4. Loved this chapter a bunch! I love the continuity between your chapters! Like how the Gvaudoin-Ripp thing was hinted in the background of the last chapter or the anniversary of Mike’s death with how Dina was really upset about it all a few chapters back!

    Does Dina have something against Kaylynn? I was wondering since she seemed not too happy to see Kaylynn at the club!

  5. prison says:

    yay Nina’s coming in to the story finally i usually when nina dates girls in my game cassandra or chloe and i hope donna meets bella sometime in the story i thought bella would be the foxy lady oh well great chapter

    • mdpthatsme says:

      A lot of people wanted my take on Nina in the story so I knew I had to do something.
      I wouldn’t say Kaylynn and Nina are dating. I don’t think Nina will really date anyone after her break up with Don.
      Foxy lady is a reference from Skell’s Fortune and Romance story. Titania is a fairy that transforms into a fox 😉 In my story, not so much.
      Thanks for the comment!

  6. Barbiepinklady says:

  7. awsome says:

  8. great says:

  9. Anon says:

    Who are the four sims in the background of the picture with titania and donna

  10. myshrahayden says:

    Oh, I loved this chapter so much ! 😀
    I love the way Jennicor, Jon Smith and Rainelle are … “enjoying” their tastes in love. You also gave me a great idea about an OTP for Gvaudoin ! :3
    It’s sad to see how Ripp will not be able to date her, but … that’s life.

    • mdpthatsme says:

      I’ve been trying to decide for a long time for who Gvaudoin could be interested in…and if she would be interested in anyone. Right now Ripp is just trying to feel the water so-to-speak, but they aren’t an item by any means. I think they counter each other pretty well. Gvaudoin (needs a nickname) has lived pretty well, likes the quiet, and is pretty serious. Ripp is…totally the opposite. She’ll probably scare the hell out of his dad.

  11. Kard says:

    I love this!!

    I hope the next one may come soon lol

  12. great says:

    so are kiernan and kvornan having an affair with each other cause it looks like there flirting in one photo

  13. great says:

    oh well then shits going down simvalley

  14. Nine Yellow says:

    OH MY GOODNESS I KNOW I’M REALLY LATE BUT I COULDN’T LEAVE IT WITHOUT A COMMENT.

    Ripp and Gvaudoin. I ship them, I really do, it was maybe summer holidays time back then and I couldn’t decide who to pair Gvaddy with, then I thought “Oh why not Ripp?” and that’s how the thing started. While reading chapter 9, I saw the scene with annoyed Gvaudoin painting his face and I was like, OTP feelings enabled *o*

    Hah, sorry for the enthusiastic-shipper-monologue, I just thought it was rare to even connect these two characters together, and my story (that’s still creating itself and I’m not sure if I’ll manage to write chapter 2 before the long schoolbreak in May >.<) would be the only one in the whole Simmers' community with a plot containing them together.

    By the way… wcif the eyebrowes you're using? ^^
