Logan’s P.O.V.
We all got into the RV, watching our Aunt Marie’s cottage go up in flames. I could feel how to sadden my Aunt Marie was that she was losing this place. This was her home. A place that I wished I could’ve to seem more of.
“Where to now?” I heard my father asked. Our parents weren’t getting along and my mom has been in the back room, ever since we had markings all over us. My Aunt Marie suggested that either she and James could drive during the night until one of us could make them some daylight rings.
“Well, first we have to get Ricky, then we have a long drive to the Spiritual Tree. Sooner we get there the better.” Marie said as she got up and walked over to my sister, who sat there, not speaking a word since we left. “Athena, you need to call Ricky’s phone again. If not, try his mother.”
Athena slowly grabbed her phone, as I watched her dial his number, her face saddened. “Phone is off. It ran once and went to voicemail.” She chucked her phone on the floor. I picked it up and placed it on the table. I touched my sister’s hand and felt everything she was feeling.
She was scared to know if her visions were true or not. She was afraid that something bad happened to him and she wasn’t able to say goodbye, or do the other thing, which I wished I didn’t know. I pulled out my phone and dialed Ricky’s mother number.
It rang more than twice, as I waiting for her to pick up. Until I heard her voice. “Logan, I’ve been meaning to call you all.” I heard her fragile voice spoke. “It happened so quickly, I just don’t know what to say.”
I could hear her sniffing. My stomach started to get tense. I felt like I was going to start crying, but I held back the tears. “What happened? Is everyone alright?”
Athena looked up and stared at me, I know she was trying to figure out what was going on, but I kept a blank face. I didn’t want her to see me get upset or see me cry. I’ve always kept a strong wall up when it came to emotions. I don’t like to show my weaknesses. Even if someone died, I try to stay strong for Athena.
“Oh, Logan,” She paused, as I could hear her blowing her nose. “Ricky’s dead.” After hearing those words, I didn’t know what to think. I looked into Athena’s eyes and I think she heard too.
____________________________________________________________________________________________________
Athena’s P.O.V.
I knew when I looked into my brother’s eyes, something was wrong. Something I feared would happen. My one true love, my first love, was now gone. My heart felt like it fell in my stomach. I didn’t know what to do. He was a part of me, gone before I had a chance to tell him goodbye.
I got up from the table and went into the small RV bathroom. I closed the door shut and just started to cry. Why couldn’t this pain go away? Why did he have to go? Why is my heart hurting this much? I kept running questions after questions in my head to explain to me why he wasn’t alive. Tears kept falling down my face, as I looked up into the mirror.
My eyes were red, but the tears kept coming. Someone knocked onto the door. I ignored it. I didn’t want to talk to anyone. No one can help me.
“Hunny, please come out. I know it hurts, but you need to talk about this?” I heard my mother spoke. I don’t know what happened to me, but I snapped. I opened the bathroom door and stared at her. I could sense she wanted to say those words I wished never existed.
I told you so.
“Are you alright?” She asked, but I still gaze at her, with hate.
“Am I alright? What do you think I am? Happy?” I snapped at her, I could feel my pulse heating up. Every inch of my body was so angry. “Ricky is dead and you want to know how I am alright? How could you ask such a thing after my best friend and first love is dead!”
My mother looked shocked and tried to hold onto my father’s shoulder. “Athena, please calm down. I know how you feel.”
“Don’t even say that! No, you don’t know how I feel because you didn’t lose your first love, you got him back! Mine’s gone forever!” More tears started to fall down my cheeks. I looked at my mother. “He’s gone and you kept him away from me. I hate you!” I yelled and ran in the back room.
I saw my Aunt Marie come behind me and comfort me. Her cold skin relaxed me, as she hugged me tightly. “I’m so sorry, love.” She whispered in my ear. It felt weird that my Aunt Marie was more comforting than my mother has ever been.
She pushed back my hair and wiped the tears from my eyes. She placed a cold kiss on my forehead. “It’s gonna hurt, right now. Losing someone is never easy, believe me, I do know. I lost my first love a few years back. To this day, I’ve never found anyone else to replace him.” She spoke as I sat up on the bed and looked at her, wiping away the last of my tears.
“How did he die?” I asked I hoped it wasn’t too bold of a question, but she didn’t flinch at the question. She kept twisting the only ring from her finger. It was a Claddagh ring with a beautiful blue topaz stone in the shape of a heart.
“Well, a month before you guys were born, I was dying and in the hospital. My grandmother tried to cast a beautiful spell and ended up being a curse. I had until my 21st birthday to find true love and have a child, to keep me from dying. While I was in the hospital, your father and mother sat by me the entire time. An old friend of mine came to visit, which happened to be my first love, but I couldn’t be with him.” She paused.
“Why not?”
“Because he wasn’t human. He was one of the older vampires that I had crossed my paths while looking for another way to cure my curse. We both fell in love but kept it a secret. Relationships between witches and vampires were allowed. It was very dangerous and deathly.”
“I can see why, but how did he know where you were?” I asked it was a little weird to me that he knew where she was.
She pulled off her ring and held it up for me to see. “With this.” She put it back on her finger. “He gave this to me, once the elders found out we were together and had us end it. We were bonded together, since I let him feed on me, at one point.” She smirked. “So, I had a bond spell put on the ring and his watch, to let him know where I was and what my health was at. There was another gem in the watch, the same as in my ring, that would change colors, so he saw the gem start to go black, which meant I was dying.”
“Once he saw me, he didn’t want to go, so I fed on him and he took me out of the country, that night and brought me to his home, where I completed the transformation to become a vampire. I still kept in touch with my brother, the first few years were the hardest and your mother didn’t want me around if I still fed on humans. It took me years to finally come up with another way to feed, but without even feeding on humans.”
“During that progress, I found your mother’s best friend, James. He had overdosed on drugs a few times before I changed him. I wasn’t going to let your mother’s best friend die because he didn’t get to be with your mother. My Eli ended up getting himself burned to death because of James. James was fighting after he was turned that he ripped off Eli’s daylight ring. He burned to death and I never forgave myself for that. He died because I was stupid and tried to save a druggie who wanted to die.”
I couldn’t believe it. She lost her love too. I touched her hand. It broke my heart to know that my Aunt Marie went through all that to save someone who wanted to be saved but ended up losing her one true love.
“I’m so sorry, Aunt Marie,” I said as I pulled her in for a hug. She hugged me back but pulled away. She stared into my eyes.
“The point of me telling you this is that revenge won’t get you anywhere. Hence why James is still alive. If I were to kill him, your mother would want to kill me. Be the stronger person and try not to lash out to your mother because you might end up hurting her.” She turned my hands upside down and showed that they had a little black in the middle of my palm. “See, you getting angry is like if someone were to turn a toddler or baby into a vampire. A fit would cause half of the planet to die off. You are a lot stronger, you need to train your powers so that you don’t hurt anyone by mistake.”
I nodded as she got up and left the room. I looked down at my hands and wiped them away from the ash that stained them. Aunt Marie was right, I needed to be careful, otherwise I might hurt someone important.
________________________________________________________________________________________________
“Alright, switching up the drivers.” James said as my father pulled over and they switched seats. We were all sitting at the table, with the exception of my mother, who has been on the phone with Ricky’s mother for the past hour.
“James, do you mind if we can pull into a fast food place in the next stop, we don’t have much food left in the fridge.” My father asked as James nodded. My father walked over to us. “What’s she learning now?”
I looked over at the book and the language. I couldn’t understand what it was saying, but my mind switches the words around. “I call out to my gods and goddesses, let me have the powers to bless this daylight ring.
“She’s learning the basic daylight spell. James’ doesn’t have a daylight ring, so I figured if she could turn his ring into a daylight ring, she will be able to do any basic spell.” Aunt Marie spoke as she handed me his ring.
“This better work, I don’t want to be the kid’s experiment.” James holler as we all chuckled.
“Now, focus and repeat after me: ‘Clamavero ad di deaeque benedicere vires adimant anulum habeam.'”
Clamavero ad di deaeque benedicere vires adimant anulum habeam.” I spoke and focused on the ring. I felt some type of weird feeling in my body that moved the ring up in the air, without anyone touching it. I then touched the ring, as it fell into my palm.
“Wow,” Logan said as Aunt Marie smiled.
“Did it work?” I asked, as Aunt Marie looked over at the ring and gazed up at James.
“Well, there is only one way to find.” She spoke.

Unforgotten – Chapter 9

If you haven’t read Chapter 8, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2019/03/05/unforgotten-chapter-8/

Ricky’s P.O.V.
I felt myself starting to get nervous as I walked up the stairs to my birth father’s house. I wouldn’t say it was a house, but more like a palace. Closer I got to the door, I could feel my hands starting to sweat. I looked over at my mother and smiled. She knew how much this would mean to me, but I could see that she was worried.
We finally got to the door and my mother rang the doorbell. All I could think about is if he would like me? Or care about me? Mom had talked on the phone with him, trying to plan out when we could both go and I get to meet him for the first time.
The door started to open and there he was. I didn’t know what to feel. Happy, sad, excited, angry, or nervous. I was just glad I knew who he looked like. Silence. “Come on in. We have a lot of catching up to do.” He gave a small smile.
As we walked in, I saw all the photo’s of me on the walls, some with just me and others with my mother. There was one photo that caught my eye, it was a photo of all three of us. It confused me. It didn’t make any sense.
“When was this taken?” I asked. My mother made it very clear that my father wanted nothing to do with me. If he wanted nothing to do with me, why did he have photos of me? Let alone a family photo of all of us.
“When you were first born.” My mother said as we all sat down. “You see, I had to lie to everyone that your father wanted nothing to do with you because of his parents. They wanted to pay me to abort you, I lied and told them you were someone else’s child. Jade is the only one who knows who your real father is, but I told her that he wanted nothing to do with you. We had to keep you a secret, we didn’t want to, but we had to. For your safety.”
“Why didn’t you tell me when I was old enough?” It didn’t make any sense to me.
“Because my parents died two months ago in a car crash. It would’ve made more sense to tell you after they passed away.” My father sighed. “I’m sorry you had to find out like this, but I never stopped missing you, Ricky. I know this won’t make up for me not being there when you were growing up and stuff, but you and your mother are more than welcome to stay here, with me.”
I felt angry and betrayed by my mother. She lied to me. Even if it was for the best, she should’ve told me about it all sooner. I looked back at my mother and then turned to face my father. “Did she tell you that I’m dying from cancer?” I snapped. I shouldn’t have said it out loud, but knowing my mother, she might not told him at all? Or did and he is trying to spend as much time as he can with me?
My father looked shocked as I spoke those words. So, she didn’t tell him. I then stood up and walked towards the front door. Pacing back and forth, trying to figure out what the hell just happened. I felt that my life was a complete lie.
I felt my phone going off, didn’t bother to check the caller ID and just answered it. “Hello?”
“Where are you guys?” I heard Athena’s comforting voice. My nerves started to relax, once I heard her voice.
“Still at my father’s house. You won’t believe what just happen.” I said.
“You need to come back, now. It’s not safe for us.” I was puzzled. What did she mean it wasn’t safe? I didn’t want to argue, but something must have happened. I had to get back to her.
I coughed, a little bit of blood started to come out. “Shit,” I mumbled under my breath, as I pulled the bottom of my tank top to wipe the blood away.
“I’ll be on my way.”
“Okay, hurry. We don’t have much time.” Athena spoke, but then hung up. I felt weak going back into my father’s house. Everything was spinning. I couldn’t see what was going on.
“Ricky!” Was the last thing I heard before everything went black.
__________________________________________________________________________________
Logan’s P.O.V.
“Did you call him? Is he on his way?” I asked as Athena hung up the phone. We were both still in our Aunt Marie’s room that had all kinds of witchcraft books and stuff.
“He said that he was going to be on his way, but we have to keep in mind it will be a few hours before we can actually cast the spell,” Athena said as I nodded. She went back into looking into the book, but something happened and she looked like she was in pain.
I could see markings appearing on her wrist, something I have never seen before. Athena screamed as these markings were burned into her skin. As I went to go help her, I felt the pain as well. It burned as the same markings were starting to burn into our skin.
The door slammed open as Aunt Marie and James came into the room. “It’s happening.” I heard Aunt Marie say before she took my arms and placed them into her cauldron. The water was cold but stopped the pain as I watched the markings starting to crawl all up to my shoulder.
I looked over at my sister, as she was passed out in James’ arms. Our parents then walked in. Mom ran to Athena, freaking out.
“What did I tell you?!” She screamed. “I’m going to kill you!” Dad held her back before she could do anything to her.
“They aren’t dying, Jade.” She paused and I could feel the pain stop. “So, before you go assuming, let me explain!” Aunt Marie snapped and handed them the same book that Athena dropped to the ground.
“James, bring Athena to the spare bedroom and stay with her and I’ll explain what is going on.” Aunt Marie said, handing James a jar of some type of liquid. “Make her drink that when she wakes up, it will help with the pain. James nodded, doing as he was told and left the room.
My mother looked like a mess, I could see she was angry and worried. She’s probably thinking the same thing I am, what the hell is going on? My mother and father both finally sat down.
“Look, I gave them some special tea to figure out how strong they were and they are one of the rarest ones.” Aunt Marie said as she walked over to me and pulled my hands out of the cauldron. I saw that the water had healed my pain as I looked over the new markings over my body. “It looks like water is going to be his strongest element. These markings, are to your elemental temple, which is Atlantis.”
Sweet, I thought to myself. I’ve always wanted tattoos, but this was even better.
“What about Athena? What happened to her?” My father spoke.
“That’s the thing, I’m not sure what is wrong with Athena. Although, Logan and she will be much stronger if they stick together.” Aunt Marie sighed. “Which is why we are going to have to leave sooner than expected.” As she was about to walk out the door, my mother’s hand gripped her wrist.
“What do you mean leave?? If we leave, we are taking our children with us and we are going home!” My mother shouted.
“If you want your children to live, I suggest you listen to me! They aren’t safe anymore! If they go out anywhere, with those markings on them, they will be killed!” Aunt Marie left the room, but my mom turned to face me.
“Mom, I know this is a lot to handle, but we need to do this. We need to stick together.” I said, but all I could see in her eyes was disgust. The vibe I felt, coming from her, was sickening. She hated what both of us children were becoming into. “I know you hate what we becoming, but if it gets a chance to save James, Aunt Marie, and even Ricky, isn’t it worth trying?”
I walked closer to my mother, but she pushed away. “I need time to think about all this.” She said, walking away from me. My father stood up next to me and gave me a hug.
“I’ll always be here for you guys. Always and forever.” He said, holding my head against his chest. He let go and headed towards the door. “Let me try and talk to her. Go check on your sister and I will be right there.”
As he left, I took a look at my hands, one more time. It was different. I felt different, but I felt what my mother was thinking I was.
A monster.
________________________________________________________________________________________________
Athena’s P.O.V.
It burned. my entire body was on fire, it felt like my skin was melting on top of my bones. The pain was the only thing I could think of until everything went dark. I was frozen where I was, couldn’t move an inch.
“Athena.” Someone whispered my name. I wanted to turn to find who it was, but I couldn’t. I felt cold relief over my body. Then something in my mind turned on. I could see Ricky.
“Ricky!” I called out, but he couldn’t hear me. I screamed again, but he still wouldn’t turn. My mind flashed as I saw him in front of the build, coughing up blood. My heart ached as I could see his cancer getting worse.
Another bright flash happened and I saw him laying on the steps, blood coming out from his nose and mouth. “Ricky, please hold on!” I saw his mother say as she held him close to her heart. A man was on the phone, dialing as fast as he could.
Everything went black, again.
I sat right up and started to breathe even harder, again. I looked around the room and saw James and my Aunt Marie at the side of the bed I was on.
“Easy, take deep breaths and when you are ready to drink this.” Aunt Marie handed me a glass of liquid and I did what I was told.
“Athena, are you alright?” I looked up and saw my brother in the doorway. He had different markings on his arms, they were black and navy blue. The markings looked familiar, but I couldn’t remember where I saw them.
I then realized that Ricky was in danger. I quickly got up from the bed and started to hurry out of the room, but James caught me as I lost my footing. “We need to go. Ricky is in danger.”
“You need to relax, alright?” James said.
“What do you mean he’s in danger?” Logan asked as I took a deep breath.
“I saw him when I blacked out, my mind saw him, he got off the phone with me and he’s bleeding from his nose and mouth. We have to go save him!” I said, finally pulling James away from me.
My Aunt Marie’s eyes widen as she started to grab some bags and such. “This day just keeps on getting better and better.” She then looked up at James. “We need to leave here, now. Make sure you grab everything we need, we won’t be coming back.”
James nodded and quickly left the room. “What do we do now?” I asked. “We are going after Ricky, right?”
“Athena, we need to leave here as fast as we can. You just had a vision. Witches having visions are normal, but usually, you need to cast a spell to see it beforehand. Your powers are a lot rarer than I thought.” Aunt Marie looked at Logan and I. “You too, need to stay together. Don’t ever leave each other’s sides. Got that?”
We both nodded.
“Great, well, grab whatever you need from my room. I have to make sure no one knows this place ever existed.” Aunt Marie said, opening the closet door and grabbing a barrel of gasoline.

Unforgotten – Chapter 8

If you haven’t read Chapter 7, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2019/02/25/unforgotten-chapter-7/

Athena’s P.O.V.
I entered the RV, not realizing that someone was with me. I turned and Ricky scared me. I jumped, as he shut the RV door.
“You scared me. I was going to be right back in-” He pressed his lips to mine and wrapped his arms around my waist. It caught me off guard, but I liked it.
My fingers when through his hair, as he held my waist, one of his hands drifted to my butt, where he squeezed it tight. He broke the kiss and started to place kisses down my chin and neck. I craved more of his touch when he placed one last passionate kiss on my lips.
Our faces were touching as we both were trying to catch out a breath. “I’ve been wanting to do that all day.” Ricky spoke as I smirked. He placed another kiss on my lips before I went over and grabbed my crocheting bag.
“How have you been feeling?” I asked. He turned to face away from me, but I understand if he didn’t want to answer. I was worried about him. I loved him with all my heart, even though he is my first love. He was still everything to me.
“I’m feeling great.” He responded. I wanted to ask more, but I figured he would get annoyed with me asking, so I dropped it.
We both left the RV and walked back inside. I looked around and saw that no one was in the living room or the dining room. I left my bag on the table as I looked up and saw them outside.
“You are not going to fucking turn him! I won’t let you!” I heard James’ voice yelling at someone. I walked further into the kitchen and saw the back down opened. “You created me to be this fucking monster, I’m not going to let you turn him into one as well!”
I stood in the doorway and saw my brother, father, and Aunt Marie, sitting at one end of the porch, with James and my mother, standing in front of them.
“James, I will explain! You need to lower your voice.” Aunt Marie said as she saw me standing in the doorway. “I need to talk to Athena.”
“No, you won’t! You want to turn her best friend into a monster! I don’t want her to become like you, something so evil!” My mother said as I could see the anger in my Aunt’s eyes.
“Your daughter and son have something that can help save people like us. People who don’t want to kill themselves because they can’t leave their house during the day. Whether you like it or not, it can help save Ricky as well.” She spoke and then walked over to me. “Tomorrow morning, we will talk more, but only if you and your brother want to.”
As our Aunt Marie headed upstairs, I looked up at my brother and father. My brother nodded, telling me that he had his approval and my father smiled at me. I felt Ricky grabbed my hand and whispered, “You don’t have to do this, Athena.”
I looked up at him and smiled. “I’m not just going to do this for you, but to save my Aunt Marie and others who want to be free from their immortal curse.”
I saw relief in his eyes, but all I could think of is if this would really work?
___________________________________________________________________________________________
The next morning, we were all sitting down for breakfast. My Aunt Marie deicide to make us all something to eat. We all ate in complete silence, until Ricky’s mother spoke.
“So, Ricky.” She paused and took a sip of her coffee. “I got in contact with your father and he wants to meet you today. I figured we can both go meet him, while everyone is settling in.”
Ricky nodded. “Okay, but I wanted Athena to meet my father as well.” I was shocked, but then again, I was glad that he offered. Although, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go meet him now, plus what I have read in my mom’s journals, I don’t think that I will do that.
“No, I think I should stay here. I can always meet him another time.” I said as he looked disappointed, but I hoped he would think of it as I am trying to save his life.
My mother suddenly got up and walked away from the table. My father followed her, I was about to, but I could already hear her, then again, everyone could.
“Why are you so supported of this, Tanner?!” We heard my mother shout. “Why would you want to turn our daughter into something like that!”
“Jade, if she is going to save my sister, your best friend, and possibly Ricky, wouldn’t you want her to at least try?” He spoke, there was a long pause. The entire house went silent. “Wouldn’t it be great that you got your best friend back?”
“Yes, but this isn’t the way to do it. James said it can be very dangerous if-” My mother spoke, but was interrupted.
“Have you asked him if he still wants to be a blood-sucking demon for the rest of the world?” Once my father spoke those words, she walked back into the kitchen and looked at James.
“I know you heard, do you?” She snapped.
“No.” He softly said. She then looked over at our Aunt Marie.
“You can teach them, but I swear to god, you hurt my babies or they get into harm’s way, I will kill you.” James chuckled as her serious face turned to face him too. “Both of you.” She walked and left the cottage. My father followed her again.
“Well, that was fun.” James spoke and smirked at me. “Boy, didn’t miss her attitude.”
“Be nice, James.” Aunt Marie said as she looked at me and Logan. “Finish up breakfast and we will start your lessons.” She started to walk upstairs. We all got up from the table and James started to take care of the plates.
“Ricky, let’s go. It’s gonna be an hour drive from here and the cab will be here shortly.” Ricky’s mother spoke as she smiled and left as well. Ricky and I headed outside and stood on the porch, he hugged me tightly.
He looked back at me. “Are you sure you don’t want to go with us?” He asked once more.
“I’m sure, but I know you will tell me all about it when you get back, right?”
“Right.” He kissed my forehead, making me smile. “I love you.” He whispered.
“I love you, too.” I whispered back as the cab pulled in. His mother and Ricky got into the cab, I waved them goodbye. Once they were out of sight, I walked back into the cottage and almost walked into James. “Oh, I’m sorry.”
He smirked. Pulling a piece of my hair behind my ear. “Boy, do you remind me of your mother when we were young.”
I pushed his hand away and headed towards the stairs, but he grabbed me and threw me against the wall. Placing both of his arms on the other side of my head. My heart started to beat faster. I felt the hairs on my arms stand up.
“You know, your mother was this fiery when she was your age. Makes me want to have you even more.” He whispered in my ear. I pushed him away and ran upstairs. My Aunt Marie was waiting for me in the hallway, as soon as I entered in she locked the door behind her. Logan was sitting on the couch, drinking something.
Aunt Marie looked me in my eyes and saw the fear that was in them. “I’ll take care of James, don’t worry.” She whispered to me as I nodded and then sat down next to my brother.
She handed each of us a teacup, with some tea in it. “Now, each of you needs to drink this as I explain.” I smelt different herbs, but the one that stuck out to me was rose petals. As I took a sip, it started to calm me down, from what had just happened.
“This tea can determine how much power or skills you have. Witches can feel different elements, you just have to have your mind opened to them. Drinking this will also relax your mind, so as you are drinking it, relax your mind completely.” Aunt Marie said as I took a few more sips. “One thing we have to find out is which element represent your soul.”
As we finished our teas, we noticed that there were some herbs sticking to the bottom of the cup. Mine looked like it had formed a symbol. It looked very familiar. Looking back in my mind, it looked like a spiral, something that I would always use for my creative blankets I would crochet.
“Why are my herbs like this?” I asked as I gave my teacup to Aunt Marie. She looked surprised as she saw inside of the teacup. She got up and looked over at the bookcase to grab a dark green book, that had a spiral on the spine of the book and book cover.
“It can’t be.”
“What can’t be?” Logan asked as I looked over at him. What there something wrong with me?
“Athena has one of the rarest gifts that you can ever get as a witch. My grandmother had it as well.” Aunt Marie paused as she sat back down across from us and handed me the book. I looked down and looked at the witchcraft symbol, showing all the elements.
“Witches who have the symbol of spiral, are very rare. They can form their own elemental circles without others. They can feel all elements, as they can put their mind to it. However, witches, as rare as these, are very powerful. They can be a threat to other witches, making them want to strip them from their power or kill them from creating any more of their kind.”
“So, what you are saying is that I’m a rare witch?” I asked as I saw my aunt looking into my brother’s teacup.
“Both of you are.” She showed the inside of the teacup and smiled. My brother and I were shocked, we both smiled, not sure what we understood about it. I handed the book to my brother as we read.
“Will we both be able to make the cure?” I asked, but Aunt Marie had moved from her chair to the window. The sun was shining in, but she wasn’t burning up. I could see that she looked very worried. “Aunt Marie?” Logan and I walked over to her. She watched as our parents were fighting in the RV.
“We need to get everyone in the house, now.” She started to walk over to the door, but I grabbed her hand.
“But, why? Aren’t we safe?”
“You are now, but because of how rare your powers are, I need to keep my promise to your mother and keep you both safe.” I still didn’t let go. “Don’t worry, Ricky and his mother will be safe, as will your parents, I need to tell your father.” I let go of her arm.
“What can we do?” Logan asked.
“Look at that book I handed you and find a protection spell. Write down what you will need, I’ll go out and have someone get it.” Aunt Marie left and closed the door shut. I went to sit back down and look at the book, but Logan shut it.
“What happened before you came up here? I know something is wrong?” Logan asked. I didn’t want him to worry about James. I hate that he knows when something is wrong.
“Don’t worry about it, it was nothing. We need to focus on finding a protection spell.” I said as I looked up and saw him rolling his eyes. Hopefully, he can drop it so we can focus.

Unforgotten – Chapter 7

If you haven’t read Chapter 6, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2019/02/18/unforgotten-chapter-6/

Athena’s P.O.V.
“Here we are.” My father said as I held my brother’s hand and Ricky’s hand tight. We were finally here. We were finally going to meet our Aunt Marie. The building in front of us was a cute cottage, with a dirt pathway and a bridge to cross before reaching another pathway.
It was beautiful, especially with the sun setting behind it. Something to me felt different. It was like I could feel the elements. Maybe I was just thinking too hard?
“I don’t think this is a good idea, Tanner.” My mother said as he turned to her.
“We will all be fine.” My father pulled something out of his pocket, a bag with a bunch of bracelets. “Put these on. These have vervain in them. It is a type of plant that burns vampires and makes sure that they can’t control you with their powers.”
We all took one and placed them on our wrists. They smelled different from what I have ever smelled. A mix of lavender, mint and rose. I love this smell, but does it really work?
I started to walk towards the cottage, beside my father and brother. The others followed behind us. My father wanted us to stop in front of the steps before we came to the door. I felt Ricky’s hand held mine.
Before my father could knock on the door, the door flew open. A pain woman with dark blue hair came into sight. “Tanner!” She shouted as he hugged her tight. “Ow!” She said, as my father’s bracelet touched her skin. So it really did work.
She looked behind my father and saw everyone else. “Are those,” She looked like she was going to cry.
“Yes, these are your nephew and niece. Logan and Athena.”
“You don’t know how much I have wanted to meet you both. I’m your Aunt Marie.” She spoke as I came to her and hugged her. Logan joined in as we hugged her both. She looks back up to Ricky, his mother, and our mom as she smiled. “Jade, so good to see you.” My mother nodded as I saw my Aunt Marie’s eyes lingered to Ricky.
“I’m so sorry.” She said, looking directly to Ricky. Why was she saying sorry to him? Her eyes turned back to Tanner. “You aren’t here to watch me die, are you?” She questioned.
My father stayed silent. “We talk about this later, Tanner. Why do you all come in, don’t worry, I don’t bite.” She smirked as my father rolled his eyes. As we walked in, there was another man sitting at the piano. His eyes fell on me.
“Jade?” He spoke as he didn’t lose his eye contact with me. I blinked and he was right in front of me. I felt my heart pumping faster. He grazed his hand against my cheek before my mother spoke.
“James? Is it really you?” She spoke and his eye contact looked up at her. He hugged her tightly. So, that was James. “I missed you so much! I thought you were dead!” My mother pulled away and slapped him in the face.
“It’s a long story.” He spoke as he looked up at Tanner. “Thank you.”
“No, problem. I figured it was time for her to see an old friend.” Our father walked over to Logan and me, his hands on each of our shoulders. “James, meet Logan and Athena, our children.” James turned his look to me.
“Athena, you look exactly like your mother did when she was your age.” James spoke. Ricky coughed and my eyes turned to him. I noticed that James turned to him as well. He looked like he had angry in his eyes when he turned to look at Ricky’s mother. “Don’t tell me you brought him here for the reason I think.”
“No, we came with them because Ricky wants to meet his father. I don’t have any attention to have you do such a thing to my son.” She spoke, giving James a hug.
Aunt Marie came back into the living room and smiled. “Why don’t we all relax and catch up for a bit. I’ll be making supper for you all.”
“I thought you guys don’t eat what we eat.” Logan bluntly asked. Aunt Marie laughed.
“We don’t, but doesn’t mean we can’t. We just don’t taste it.” She explained as Ricky came up to Aunt Marie, whispering something to him that I couldn’t make out. Her eyes got big for a moment before looking back at me.
What was Ricky hiding from me? As he walked away with Aunt Marie in another room.
______________________________________________________________________________________________
Ricky’s P.O.V.
I walked over to Marie, as she finished speaking to Logan on the question he asked. She smiled when I came closer. “I need to talk to you about something.” I whispered, making sure no one else heard me. I then slowly showed her the necklace, that the woman in my dream gave me.
“Follow me.” She whispers back. “James, can you start boiling the water for me?” She spoke as James nodded. She then led me upstairs, to the two doors to the right, a door that looked different from the others. Black and locked. She unlocked it and opened it, nodding her head for me to get in.
As I walked in, the room was something that I never thought I would see again. The tiles were dark blue and the walls were wallpapered over with dark trees and leaves, so wasn’t the ceiling. There were plants right in front of the windows, with a heating element on top of them.
A couch and coffee table that sat in the middle of the room. A black pot, that was over the fireplace, that sat releasing stem. She motioned her hand for me to sit on the couch, she sat across in a chair that could almost pass as a throne.
I then pulled out the necklace and handed it to her. “Where did you get this? I haven’t seen this since my grandmother passed away.”
“I had a dream last night. A woman in a cloak came to me saying to give this to you. She said that Athena is the one who can create the cure for vampirism.” I said coughing. Marie handed me a tissue. “Thank you. She said that if Athena doesn’t create the potion, something dangerous will happen.”
“I know what she is talking about,” Marie said, standing up and lighting a few more candles. “Before I became a vampire, I was a true witch. My grandmother taught me all that I needed to know, but she placed the wrong curse on me. I were to have to have a baby with my true love in the next 8 full moons, but my true love was a vampire and so that’s when I started working on a cure for vampires.”
“Why did you turn?” I asked as she started to pour two cups of tea and placed them on the coffee table.
“I had no other choice. I miss calculated on how much time I had and Tanner begged my vampire lover to change me, so I could live longer and be able to see his kids grow up. When that happened, the spirits in my soul took all of my magic. I tried to get them to let me have it back, but because I was not alive, they didn’t want to me to lose control.”
“I know this might be a little personal, but what happened to your true love?” I asked and then took a sip of the tea that was in front of me. I felt stronger than before. “What’s in this?”
Marie chuckled and smiled. “It’s a type of tea I have created for sick people. I actually have Tanner sell it. It doesn’t heel your cancer, but it will keep you from feeling so sick and weak. Especially, when you deflower my niece.”
“How did you know-” I froze in my seat.
“I can read your mind. Being a vampire, it is one of my many gifts. I know that you have loved Athena for a very long time, but you want to give her the most romantic night of her life, which I plan on helping you with because I just love romance and I don’t want her to lose you. You seem like a wonderful young man. The last thing I want to do is ruin a relationship, again.” She took a sip of her, I saw that it made her cough a bit, or like it burned the back of her throat.
“Now, we need to keep this between you and I. Don’t worry about James, no one can hear what you are talking about or thinking in this room. Just make sure that you don’t think about it. I don’t want James’ getting his hopes up about a cure.” We both stood up and she handed me a tablet. “Keep these in your pockets and out of everyone’s sight, especially James.”
“What are they?” I asked as I looked down at the tablet, it was white and had a ‘BX O’ on it.
“They are blood tablets. We use them than drinking human’s blood. It craves the hunger and taste the same, but are less noticeable for people to notice. I created them, with the help of a friend, after I killed my first victim.”
“Why are you giving them to me?”
“Because, plan on becoming a vampire soon. I’m going to teach Athena how to become a witch.” She smirked.
________________________________________________________________________________________________
Logan’s P.O.V.
We were all sitting down at the table, enjoying the alfredo chicken and broccoli that our Aunt Marie and James’ made us. I looked over at Ricky, who looked a little better than he did this morning, he was sitting next to Athena smiling.
“Anyone like desert?” James asked.
“No, I think I’m pretty full, but I wanted to chat up with you some more.” She looked next to our father as he smiled and nodded.
“I’m pretty full, I wanted to go get my crochet hooks from the RV.” Athena spoke as I was about to go with her, but Ricky had excused himself already.
“My dear brother, I need to have a word with you and my nephew.” I looked at her a questioned why she would want to talk about me. She sat up from the table and took care of the plates. “Meet me outside on the back porch, I’ll be right out.” She spoke as my father and I walked out back and saw a beautiful garden out back.
There were a hanging porch swing and a rocking chair in the far side of the porch, I sat down, looking at dad.
“Do you know what it is about?” I asked, but my father shook his head. Aunt Marie finally came out and sat down in the rocking chair, lighting a candle.
“Please sit Tanner, we need to talk about something.” She said. My father did as he was told and she pulled out the necklace. My father looked shocked.
“Where did you get that? I thought it was with grandma.”
“Ricky gave it to me. I know you don’t believe the witchcraft stuff, but I need you to hear me out.” She sighed. “Athena is the one who can create the cure for vampirism.”
“Wait, what?” I said I was shocked. Athena has always been interested in stuff like witchcraft, but I can’t imagine her practicing it. “Are you okay, Aunt Marie? I think you are talking nonsense.”
“You may think so until she learns.” She looked back over to my father who was still trying to process what she was talking about. “Grandma came to Ricky in his dreams and wants me to teach your daughter. I have a feeling that she will create the cure, but Tanner, it’s only a matter of time.”
“There is a cure? I thought there wasn’t? Eli told us there wasn’t.” My father spoke. Who’s Eli? What does he have to do with it?
“I was working on a cure for Eli, but because of what happened to me, I never finished it, but Athena can, she just needs to learn. Which is why I figured you and Logan would understand than Jade.” She said. Aunt Marie grabbed my hands, and she looked in my eyes. “She could even save Ricky. We can turn him, he would be cured and then he would be back as a human. She wouldn’t lose him and neither will you.”
This was a lot of information for me to process. So, we turn Ricky into a vampire, so that he doesn’t die from cancer, but then cure him from being a vampire and he is well and better again? I was confused. I took a deep breath and then nodded. “I’ll do it. I’ll help out.”
Aunt Marie smiled and gave me a hug. “One more thing, you can’t tell your mother or James. Tanner needs to tell him. I’ll talk to Athena.”
Then the back door flew open, causing a loud bang. There stood James. “Marie, you aren’t turning that cancer patient into a fucking murder like us!”

Unforgotten – Chapter 6

If you haven’t read Chapter 5, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2019/02/11/unforgotten-chapter-5/

Athena’s P.O.V.
Ricky and I talked all night long, until I fell asleep on his chest. I fell his hands grazed my hair, back and forth. It felt heavenly. I wanted to be wrapped up in his scent with him. Spend all the time I can with him. I just can’t believe he never told me until now.
I wanted to spend every moment with him. Up until his last breath, but I was scared that he would die before I never got a chance to say goodbye.
I slowly got up from the bed and saw that Ricky wasn’t there. I looked around and then almost hit my head of the RV, trying to get out of the bedroom, when I saw my brother eating pancakes at the table. I looked over at the driver’s seat and didn’t see Ricky.
“Where is he?” I demanded to my brother. I was afraid something happened to him. I knew my brother could see the panic in my face and pointed at the other seat that had a plate of pancakes.
“He went to go get some iced coffee.” My brother said before stuffing his face. I slowly sat down and looked at him. I wasn’t hungry, I wouldn’t eat until I knew he was okay.
“Do you know?” I bluntly asked as my brother nodded. “How long?” My brother took a sip of juice and cleared his throat before replying.
“Yesterday and I had no idea anything was wrong.” He said. I wanted to continue the conversation, but I left it alone when I saw Ricky. I was relieved. He smiled when he saw me and I returned the smile. He placed the coffees down in front of us and sat next to me.
“I didn’t want to wake you up.” Ricky said, taking a sip of his coffee. “We are parked at the airport and we are going to wait until our parents get off the plane. Then we will head off.”
I stayed silent and slowly started to eat the pancakes. Knowing that our parents are going to be getting off the plane any moment now, I wasn’t ready for what was going to happen.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
I held Ricky’s hand tightly as we waited for our parent’s to get off the plane. I bet he could feel my hand sweating because I was nervous of what my mom was going to say. I don’t know what my dad would say, but I know that he wouldn’t freak out as much as mom would.
“So, uh, I know this isn’t the best time in the world to ask this, but do you want to be together, together?” Ricky asked as my face started to feel red. I looked up at him and smiled.
“Yes.” I said, as he returned the smile and placed a kiss on my forehead. I felt very giggly inside because he was my first ever boyfriend and I was glad it was him. Even though he doesn’t have much time left, I still wanted to be with him.
I looked back at the hallway and saw our parents walking towards us, I was too excited to see my dad again that I ran and hugged him tightly. He dropped his bags as I jumped into his arms.
“Hey, sweetheart.” He said as he wrapped his arms around me. I could feel tears dropping from my eyes onto his jacket. He put me down and my mother wrapped her arms around me. I wanted to push away but kept on hugging me anyway.
“Mom, you can stop hugging her now.” Logan butted in as she realized that she was still hugging me and hugged Logan instead.
“I missed you both very much.” She said as she finally let go of Logan. She frowned when she saw Ricky hugging his mother, then she laid her eyes back on me. “Logan, can you talk my bags for me dear?” Logan nodded and everyone else started to head out of the airport.
I started to walk, but my mother stopped me in my tracks. “You do realize he is dying, right?” She said as I looked back at Ricky walking away with the others.
I turned back and looked at my mother. “I know, but if dad was sick, you would stay with him until the very end, right?” I sighed, waiting for my mother to snap back. “I love him and I’ll do anything for him. Just like you would’ve done for James, if you never met dad, right?” She froze where she stood as I started to walk away.
I shouldn’t of said anything, but it slipped. I walked faster because I had a feeling she was going to be very pissed of me reading her journals. Hopefully, she wouldn’t make a seen in front of everyone.
____________________________________________________________________________
Ricky’s P.O.V.
“How you feeling hunny?” My mother asked me. We went outside to let Athena and Logan talk with their parents. My mother had a worry look in her face. She’s been worry ever since we found out, but I told her to still treat me like she would normally.
“I’m okay, mom. You don’t need to worry.” I said as she still looked at me worried.
“When was the last time you ate something?” She asked. I paused and rubbed the back of my head, trying to stall. I drank coffee this morning, but I haven’t eaten a lot. It’s been like this for the past few days.
“I’m fine, don’t worry,” I reassured her, again. I don’t think she was buying it, but hopefully, she got the hint to lay off the questions.
“If you say so. Let’s get in the RV, it’s a little chilly right now.” She said as she went in. I wanted to take a few breaths on my own until something in my stomach didn’t seem right. I felt it coming up and ran to the end of the RV, puking.
I coughed and realized that it was blood that was showing. As long as I can hold on for another day, I should be fine.
_____________________________________________________________________________
“You sure you are okay with driving?” I asked Tanner, as he nodded.
“I’m fine, go get some sleep with the girls, if you want.” He replied as I sat in the passenger side of the RV.
“I’ll just hang out with you. Figured you would need the company.” I said as I felt a little chilly and grabbed my sweatshirt and pulled it over my head. I took a sip of my water bottle as Tanner turned the heat up. “Thanks.”
“No problem. You okay?” He asked, still focus on the road.
“Yeah, just cancer.” I joked, I coughed again. Nothing came up, thankfully. “Hopefully, my father wants to meet me.”
“I don’t see why not. You are an amazing, respectable, young man. I just want to let you know that I’ve always considered you a son in my eyes.” Tanner looked at me and smiled before his eyes landed back on the road. “I wish I could take it away from you-” He paused in a long thought because he spoke.
I wondered what he was thinking of. “No, it wouldn’t work. I don’t want to put you through it.”
“What?” I wondered.
“My sister is a vampire, but I don’t want you to live with the curse of being a vampire.” He explained. Becoming a vampire? Not sure about that, but it would give me more time to be with Athena. We could both turn and be together forever, but I don’t want to do that to her if she doesn’t want to. “Don’t think of it as a cure. You won’t be able to control your thrust for blood. My sister has been turned as long as the twins have been alive and she still has trouble. That’s why she is ending it all and killing herself.”
“Isn’t there a cure for it?”
“No, my sister was a witch and was working on a cure for a friend of herself, but when she turned, she lost all her powers.” He explained.
She was working on a cure? For who? I stayed sight and ended up falling asleep.
“I know you can hear me.” A voice spoke, I opened my eyes and sat up. I was in a graveyard. I looked around, I wasn’t in the RV. I stood up fast and then saw a figure. “You are dreaming. Relax.” The voice spoke again, and the figure was slowly starting to come to me.
It was in a dark velvet cloak. Then it walked closer into the moonlight, where they took their hood off. A woman with grey hair, her face covered in wrinkles from old age. She had something on her head that showed a Wiccan pentagon.
I took a few steps away. What is this? What is happening to me?
“You have nothing to fear.” She spoke. “I have something very important that I need to tell you.”
Somehow, I didn’t feel as frightened as I was. She reminded me of someone. Someone I knew, but I couldn’t remember who.
“Who are you and what do you want with me?” I asked. Trying to stay brave. I almost bumped into a gravestone, as I turned around, I dropped to my knees. Looking at the name of the gravestone. With my name on it. I was speechless.
“This is what will happen if you don’t do what I tell you to do, Ricky.” I turned my head and faced her. How did she know my name? What the hell is going on?
“How did-” I tried to reply, but she spoke before I could answer.
“No more questions. I don’t have much more time.” She sighed and then grabbed my arm, pulling me to a giant wooden maple tree. It looked like the one back at home in the graveyard. Where I went with Athena and Logan to drop flowers off to their grandmothers grave.
She placed her hand on the tree and a passage opened up, followed by stairs. We entered the tree, with the tree closing up behind us as we walked down into a smooth wooden hallway, before entering a giant room with another tree grown inside the one we just entered.
She stopped in her tracks as we faced the left wall. A bunch of names was carved into the tree. Some of them crossed out and others painted over in different colors. I froze when I saw Athena’s name.
“These are the past, present, and future witches, from the beginning. Athena is a witch and she is the only one to cure the vampires. That means if you turn, she will be able to cure you, but she must come here and learn.” She faced me and handed me a necklace. “When you meet Marie, hand her this, she will know what to do.” I looked down at the necklace and saw a tiny bottle of liquid inside the wooden heart-shaped necklace.
“What is this?” I asked.
“It is a potion that will allow her to enter this place because she is a vampire, her powers of being a witch were taken away from her, but it is my fault she is who she is. I placed, what I thought was a cure for ugliness on her, but somehow something went wrong and it was the wrong one. I need to fix things now because if Athena doesn’t cure her curse of vampirism, something terribly bad will happen.”
I woke up in sweats. I looked around and I was in the RV. I felt relieved. Daylight burned in my eyes, as I turn to look to the back of the RV, everyone was awake and eating lunch. Athena smiled when she saw me get up.
“Morning sweetie, you want something to eat?” My mother asked as I nodded.
“Yeah, let me change my clothes and I’ll eat something.” I said as my mother nodded and continued to eat what looked like Wendy’s on the table.
I walked into the bedroom in the back and shut the door behind me, I checked my sweatshirt pocket and was surprised that I felt the necklace from my dream. I took a good look at it and touched the soft wooden carvings of the heart itself, and just like the woman said, the vial that I give to Marie.
I just hope that this works.

Sims 2 Challenges: Ones I Can’t Wait To Try Out!

Image result for sims 2 challenges logo

Hey dearies! So, as you all know I LOVE the Sims! I think its fun to play with life in a more pixelated way. As you all know that when you start playing a game, it can get boring doing the same thing over and over. Many players get creative and start finding different ways to play, which are called ‘challenges’.

Challenges are just a different, more fun, way to play the game. They can be about anything or have a goal in mind. Some challenges might have a points system, too. When it’s all said and done, a lot of people like to share their gameplay or how the challenge went.

I am so excited to announce that I will be taking part in some of these challenges and will record myself playing them! I know, I’m pretty excited too! So, let’s go on to the few challenges I have in mind that I would like to try!

The Legacy Challenge

Image result for sims 2 legacy challenge

This challenge is one of the most famous that you can try out. Basically, your goal is to have a family with 10 generations, but following the guidelines. This challenge can be the hardest that anyone can try, but it’s fun to try the challenge out!


The Black Widow Challenge

Image result for sims 2 black widow challenge

The title sounds a little familiar, hmm? Well, it is! I actually used this idea for one of my short stories, but the challenge is nothing like my short story. You are a female who is on the hunt for wealthy men. You marry them for their money, cheat on them in front of them, and then have them die. Then you marry the person you had an affair with and do the cycle all over again.

Sounds fun, doesn’t it?


The Disney Princess Challenge

Image result for sims 2 disney princess challenge

Ever wanted to play as a Disney princess? Here is your chance! Its sort of the same thing as the Legacy Challenge expect every generation you start with, is a different princess.

Here is the list of generations and which princesses you can play as:

  1. Snow White (Start as an adult)
  2. Cinderella (Start as a teen)
  3. Tiana (Start as a teen)
  4. Aurora (Start as an adult)
  5. Anna (Start as a teen)
    1. Elsa (Start as a teen) [I can’t do this one because I don’t have one of the expansion packs, but if I end up getting the Sims 2 Ultimate Collection, I will keep you guys posted!]
  6. Rapunzel (Start as a teen)
  7. Belle (Start as a young adult)
  8. Ariel (Start as a teen)
  9. Jasmine (Start as a teen)
  10. Merida (Start as an adult)
    1. Or Mulan (Start as an adult)

As you go through each generation, there are mini-tasks that you have to do for each princess. You are also allowed to add extra sims if you want to customize the princes.

This challenge is on the top of the list for me to try out and I seriously can’t wait!


The Teenage Dream Challenge

Image result for sims 2 teenage dream

Ever wondered what it would be like as a teenager living the dream with no parents? This one is for you!

Basically, you are a runaway teen that is on their own. You have to have a job or find a way to make money and basically, be a teenager, but with responsibilities. You can make the challenge even harder and make her have babies.


The Mommy Challenge

If you like dealing with kids or babies, in the Sims, then you’ll have fun with this challenge. Basically, all you need to do is have kids, can’t be married to them or have them live with you. Raise your kids up, while trying to complete your lifetime goal.

The only problem with this challenge is that there are no points or set goals for you too do.


The Vampire Legacy Challenge

Image result for sims 2 vampire

Love playing as the undead? Make a legacy out of it with this challenge!

I’m a big fan of vampires, don’t ask me why, but I love reading about them and to actually play as a vampire, sounds so much fun! Your goal is to make it through 10 generations, without using any types of cheats. It’s like the Legacy challenge, but you’re a blood-sucker.


The Perfect Mother Challenge

Image result for sims 2 mother holding baby

Almost the same as the ‘Mommy Challenge’, but there are more tasks and goals for you to complete, the other big difference is that you can’t work until all your toddlers are children. If you don’t like raising babies and toddlers, I wouldn’t choose this challenge.


The 100 Baby’s Challenge

Image result for sims 2 100 baby challenge

One of the most popular and most known challenges is the 100 Babies Challenges. The goal is to have 100 babies, with the least amount of births and with different men sims. This is more challenging because the sims game will only let you have only 8 sims per household.

Mods and hacks are your best way to help you complete the challenge. What makes this even more challenging, is that you can’t have anyone help you! You are a single mom who has lots of babies! The good news is that once your teens get an A+, you can move their butts out to make more room for more babies!


The Family Business Challenge

Image result for sims 2 family business

Have the OFB (Open For Business) Expansion pack, but haven’t actually tried it out on how to manage a home business? This challenge can get you on the right path, plus you get to know more about the OFB pack.

This is the Legacy Challenge and Business combined. Have generations, while trying to keep open the family business.


The Not So Berry Challenge

Image result for sims 2 not so berry challenge

Again, another legacy challenge, but with a colorful twist. Every generation represents a different color, but each head of the household has a different task and job. Making it more different and a chance for you to try out different aspirations, too.

Here are the list of generations and their colors:

  1. Mint
  2. Rose
  3. Yellow
  4. Grey
  5. Plum
  6. Orange
  7. Pink
  8. Peach
  9. Green
  10. Blue

You also have to have your entire household be dressed in the same color that the generation represents.


The Prosperity Challenge

Ready to leave all your choices to the dice? This challenge shakes up the Sims gameplay! You are literally creating an entire neighborhood, however, with the roll of the dice. It determines how many families you will have, what their gender is, age, and personality.

The best part is, you aren’t just stuck with just one family, you have to play around with the entire neighborhood you just created! I’m really excited to give this challenge a go.


The Immortal Challenge

Image result for sims 2 immortal challenge

Ever wanted to see how long you can get your Sim to live for or just love the Sim you created and really don’t want to see them die? Well, this immortal challenge is something to definitely try out. You are a sim that builds wealth and a family.

Completing your Lifetime Wish and a list of objectives. You can get married and have a family, but once your spouse dies, you can remarry, start a new family, and a new job. It gives you a chance to switch it up.


The Rags to Riches Challenge

You start out as a poor sim with nothing (literally nothing) and make them be one of the most richest Sim in town! Building your home from scratch and working your way up to the highest career you can get!

A simple challenge, but you can’t get married until you have completed the challenge.


The Single Mom Challenge

Image result for sims 2 single mom challenge

I know what you are probably thinking, another mommy-like challenge!? This one is different because you aren’t starting out with just one Sim. You start out with a family of sims, that lives very poor and the father dies (you kill him). Then you find out you are pregnant with twins (using a cheat).

Then you have to not only raise your kids but the new twins on the way. Here’s another twist, can’t have a job until she has about 15,000 dollars in the bank. Not only that, but this challenge makes you get creative and makes you dress everyone is ruined, old clothes. You can only upgrade stuff/clothes when you have 5,000 dollars.


So, here are a few that I’m interested in trying and hopefully, going to film, as well. Leave a comment down below if you are interested in seeing me play any other these challenges. There are a whole lot more, but these are the ones that have caught my eye!

Unforgotten – Chapter 5

Logan’s P.O.V.
“So, where are we going, Ricky?” I asked as I turned to look back at my sister, who had fallen asleep on the RV’s couch. I still can’t believe that I agreed to this. It was for Athena, that’s for sure.
“Well, I figured we would leave Washington and just drive for a day or two. I want to head to Cali, but I’m still debating it.” He spoke, still looking back onto the road. “I’m sorry if I dragged you with us, but I had to ask her.”
I looked at him, as he looked into the mirror and smiled as he watched my sister sleeping for a split second. “I really love her. I’m just shocked that she said yes. Didn’t even think about it for a second.” I was kinda surprised because this isn’t something that Athena normally does.
I wonder why she wanted to all of a sudden leave? I pulled out a map of the United States and saw different states circled. California, New York, Nevada, New Jersey, and Florida were all circled. One was circled in a different color, which caught my eye. It was New Jersey. It was strange, but the ink looked familiar.
“I know you do.” I sighed, I looked over at him, watched him as he watched the road. “Why did you plan to leave?”
He didn’t flinch when the question was brought up, he sighed. He stayed quiet for a few minutes before he had a chance to speak. “I want to meet my father. I haven’t told you or Athena this, but the real reason why your mother has always wanted me to stay away from you guys, especially, Athena, is that I have cancer.”
I was shocked. Normally, we have always told each other everything, but this was something that he hasn’t mention to either of us. God, if Athena finds out, she is going to be crushed. Ricky turned into a gas station and pulled up to one of the pumps.
Shutting off the engine and turned to face me. I could now see in his eyes how sick he truly was. It hit me how much he has changed, but why did he felt the need to not tell me? Or Athena? “Please.” He stared at me dead in the eyes. “Don’t tell Athena. I’ll tell her when I’m ready.”
Ricky got out of the RV and slammed the door. Which woke Athena up. I turned to look at her and smiled. “We are at a store if you want something to eat.” I said, as she sat up from the couch and yawned.
“Sounds good to me.” She got up and left the RV. I was about to leave as well, but my phone started to ring. I didn’t even check to see who it was and just picked it up. “Hello?”
“Logan, how’s everything?” I heard my father speak.
“Fine, but did you know, about Ricky?” I asked. My father knew I was very blunt about stuff. I could hear him being silent.
“He told you, didn’t he?”
“Yeah, Athena doesn’t know, but is that why you let us go with him?”
“Sort of, but I want to tell your sister and you in the morning. I love you both.” He said.
“Love you too dad.” I hung up. All this of this information was hitting me all at once. Ricky has cancer. Dad came back. We have an aunt who is a vampire.
I think I just need to sleep on this all.
_____________________________________________________________________________
Ricky’s P.O.V.
The next day, I pulled into an RV camp, just so we could all sleep. Logan walked over to the store to grab some more supplies. Once he gets back, we are going to call their dad and let them know what else is going on.
I watched Athena sleeping, she looked so peaceful. I finally convinced her to sleep in the bed that was in the back of the RV. I climbed into bed with her and got under the covers. She rolled over and laid on my chest.
My heart started to beat faster. This has been something I have dreamed, for a very long time, although, I won’t be able to do it much longer. I wanted to spend as much time as I could with her before I go.
A tear fell from my cheek as I thought about it some more. I didn’t have the heart to tell her. I didn’t want to tell her, but I couldn’t keep it a secret. I was about to fall asleep until I heard the RV door open and close.
Logan walked in with a few bags and placed them on the table. I got up, making sure not to wake up Athena.
“She still sleeping?” Logan asked as I nodded and then pointed back outside.
“I need to talk to you.” I said as Logan put some of the stuff away and then walked back outside with me. I closed the door and paced back and forth before I started to throw up. Logan started to rub my back.
“You okay, man?” Logan asked as I stood back up and leaned against the RV. “It’s getting worse, isn’t it?”
“Yeah,” I said, taking a moment to breathe. “Which is why I want to ask you something.”
“Anything.”
“Tonight, I was wondering if you can let Athena and I have the RV to ourselves?” I was nervous about asking him. “I need to tell her because I don’t have much time.”
“Sure man. Are you gonna, do it?” Logan said, which I could see that it was uncomfortable for him to ask. “I don’t care, but just use protection.”
“Only if she wants to. I won’t force her.” The RV door swung open and Athena stepped down. “What time is it?” She asked.
“It’s about noon, but we need to call dad, once you eat something,” Logan said as Athena nodded and walked back into the RV. Logan turned to me. “How much longer do you think you have left?”
“Not sure, I’m a ticking time bomb.” I chuckled, it wasn’t funny, but it was true. I rubbed the back of my neck as we both go back inside the RV.
_______________________________________________________________________
“How is everyone?” I heard Tanner ask, I waited and wanted Athena or Logan to answer.
“We are okay, Dad, but we are still really confused on why you let us go with Ricky.” Athena asked as she looked at Logan and me.
“Well, you guys are going to meet your Aunt Marie. She’s in California and since Ricky is going there, I figured you guys would tag along and meet her too. You’re mother and I are going to head out and meet you guys there tomorrow.” he explained. I’m glad he didn’t tell him the real reason why I’m heading to Cali.
“Why now?” Logan asked.
“One of your mother’s best friends had died, but come to find out, my sister saved him and turned him. He and my sister want to meet you, but they are going to burn in the sun in the next week since there is no cure to vampirism. I figured you guys would want to meet both of them.” We heard him pause. “I’m so sorry we never told them about you guys.”
“It’s okay, at least we are going to meet them now.” Athena said.
“It’s not okay, I wish I had told you guys sooner. Anyway, your mother, Ricky’s mother, and I are on our way. We are about to board the plane. Stay safe and we love you.” Their father hung up. I got up and sat down in the driver’s seat.
“We better get going. I have to meet them at the airport.” I said as I started the RV. Before I could switch it in gear, Logan stopped me.
“Let me drive.” I nodded and got out of the seat as he whispered. “You need to tell her, so spend time with her in the bedroom. Just shut the door. I don’t want to hear anything.” I smirked as I looked up at Athena.
I grabbed the box of pizza that Logan picked up before we called their father and brought it in the bedroom, where Athena was crocheting away. I shut the door and sat on the bed next to her.
She stopped crocheting and placed them on the nightstand and grabbed a piece of pizza. As I grabbed one, she took a bite of hers.
“Are you sure Logan can drive this?” She asked as I could see she was a little worried about him driving an RV all by himself.
“He’s fine. Listen, there is something I need to tell you.” I said, but she put the pizza back in the box and moved it off the bed. I finished the piece and then looked at her. “You need to be calm when I tell you, okay?”
She nodded as she got closer to me. I didn’t want to tell her. She was already going through a lot, but she needed to know. Especially, if I’ll not be around much longer. I took a deep breath and looked into her eyes.
“I love you, Athena.” I paused and then cleared my throat. “I’m dying. I have cancer.” Her beautiful face went from smiling to sadness. I wanted to hug her, but she just stared at me.
“H-How long?” She asked. I was confused.
“How long what?”
“How long have you known and not told me?!” Her voice started to rise. “Does Logan know? Do my parents know?”
I grabbed her hand, but she pulled away and moved herself away from me. “Answer the questions.”
“I found out when I graduated. They ran tests and I’ve got maybe another month or two to live.” She placed her hands over her mouth as she cried more. I wish I had told her sooner, but my mother beat it to tell her mother. That’s why she didn’t want me around Athena, she didn’t want me to fall in love with her and then I die.
I went over to hug her, this time she let me. I wrapped my arms around her and held her as long as I could. I didn’t want to let go. I didn’t want her to let go. I wanted to spend as much time as I had with her.
“Say something, please.” I asked, I looked down at her and looked into her eyes, she was heartbroken. It was all because of me. I went to kiss her forehead, but she moved and I got her lips instead. They were warm and loving, just like the last time we kissed.
I pulled away, but she held my head in her hands. “Please, just let me kiss you.” She spoke softly.
“I just don’t want it to go further unless you really want to.” I said. She stared into my eyes, again.
“I want to. I want you, Ricky.” She said as she pulled me into a kiss again. Laying us both down on the bed. I pulled away again. Looking into her eyes, I could see the worry that was showing in her eyes. Her hands started to linger down to my pants.
“Are you sure you are ready?” I asked as she stared at me. “I don’t think you are. I think you are scared to lose me.”
Athena’s face looked blank for a second as she pushed away from me, siting up on the bed, wiping the tears that just started to fall. “Do you know how long I’ve wanted to be with you?” She paused and turned to look at me. “I know we are both young, but I had planned a future of us. We were going to go through college together, get a beautiful house, get married and have kids running around the house.”
I stayed silent. I’ve always thought of being with Athena, building a life with her too, but I stopped thinking about it all after I found out I was dying. It was the reason I pushed her away. I didn’t want her to think that we could be together forever unless it could happen.
“I love you, Ricky. More than you know.” She sighed and covered her eyes. Her voice was starting to crack. “You lied to me. I’m sorry if I wanted to share something special with you before you die. If you don’t want to let me, it’s fine. I’ll just go.” Before she could stand up and leave, I grabbed her arm and pulled her back down to me.
“Don’t leave, please. Just let me explain.” I sat up and held both of her soft hands. “I-I didn’t know how to tell you. Your mother figured it would be easier to not mention it, but she was wrong. I was wrong. I should’ve told you sooner. We just need to take this day by day until my last. The one thing I want from you is your happiness.”
I wiped her tears and smiled at her. She was so beautiful. I just can’t imagine leaving her side.

Unforgotten – Chapter 4

If you haven’t read Chapter 3, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2019/01/28/unforgotten-chapter-3/

Logan’s P.O.V.
After I said all that stuff, I went up to the tree house. I could hear them arguing from my room and I just wanted to take in that all the information Mom said in her journals, was in fact true.
My phone went off and Ricky’s name popped up. I opened the message and read it: Athena is with me. Just a heads up.
I packed a bowl and took a high. Releasing it and replying back to Ricky: Thks man, a lot of shit happened today.
I heard someone come up to the tree house and Dad appeared. He sat down on the other chair and put his head in his hands. “How bad has your mother been drinking?” He asked as I handed him my bowl pack.
“Bad. Athena hasn’t noticed as much as I have, but she’s drinking a wine bottle a day, almost.” I replied. My Dad grabbed my lighter and took a hit.
“Where’s Athena?” He asked. Handing me the bowl pack.
“She’s with Ricky. Ricky just texted me, letting me know.” I said, I knew I could trust Dad, with where Athena was. He’s always liked Ricky and treated him like a son. “Just don’t tell Mom, she doesn’t want Athena and Ricky to get together.”
Dad shook his head. He knew that Athena has always had a thing for Ricky, I have too, but Mom just wants Athena to see other people and not just one guy. “Your mother just doesn’t want her to follow her footsteps.”
“I know, but the more she tells them not to be together, they will find a way.” I said, taking another hit. “I’m sorry we read her journals. I know we shouldn’t of done it, but we were curious with her past.”
“It’s not your fault. We should’ve told you guys sooner about my sister, but how much did you read?” Dad asked as I took another hit and handed him the bowl pack.
“We know about Mom’s childhood and that there was this ‘James’ guy. We stopped reading after she mentioned Marie being a vampire.” I sighed. “I mean Aunt Marie.”
My Dad tapped my shoulder. “I’m sorry we are now just telling you, but I went to go see her. The reason why she hasn’t been around or mentioned is that we have always feared that she would feed on you guys.”
I played with the lighter, flicking it off and on. I kinda understood where my parents were coming from, but I wish they told us sooner. “I understand, but I want to meet her. I’m sure Athena does too.”
I looked up at my father, as he pulled out his phone and handed it to me. Showing me a picture of a woman. She had long black hair and her eyes we a golden yellow. Her skin was pale, but she beautiful. I looked back up at my father. “This her?” I asked. He nodded.
“Yes. You can meet her, but I have to explain something to you kids.” He sighed and wrapped his arm around my neck. “I missed you guys so much.”
I nodded. My dad and I smoked and hung out, just like we would’ve done on a normal day, but I was glad he was back home. We needed him.
________________________________________________________________
Ricky’s P.O.V.
I finally parked my car at my usual place, it was were I went when I wanted to be alone. Only this time, I wasn’t. I was with the girl I loved. I turned off the engine and we just sat in silence. I looked over at Athena and couldn’t help to notice how beautiful she looked.
She held a blanket in her hands, must of been something she was working on, but they had my favorite color all over it. Navy blue. I waited to see if she was going to speak, but she kept looking down at the blanket.
“I’m glad you called.” I spoke, hoping that would get a conversation started.
“A lot’s going on.” She finally answered. She then handed me the blanket. I smiled at her. “Here, I made this for you. I figured I would give it to you.”
I took the blanket, it was soft to the touch, but it meant more to me than she knew. It was made by her, and it would be something I would never let anything happen to it.
“Athena, thank you. I love it.” I said. I wanted to kiss her, but I didn’t want her to get upset or hurt, by me. “Listen, I need to tell you something.”
I took a deep breath in. “I’m leaving.” I hurt for me to say it, but it needed to be done. I was leaving. I have been planning this for awhile, but it was something that I have been wanting to do for awhile. I had gotten a RV and was planning on traveling the world. I had managed to transfer to online classes, until I found where I wanted to be.
Her face looked hurt as I said those words. “Leaving?” She spoke. I tear stumbled down her cheek in shock. “W-Why?” She asked.
“I’ve finally managed to save up some money to travel and I’m leaving. Tonight.” Athena’s face was still in shock. It seemed she didn’t know what to say. I really didn’t want to ask this, but it slipped out. “I wanted to ask you if you wanted to come with me, but-”
“Yes.” She interrupted me, I was shocked with her answer. She answered so quickly that my mind had to remind myself what I just asked. She said yes… I wasn’t expecting her to say anything, especially not right away.
“Are you serious? Don’t you want to think about it?” I asked.
“Yes, I’m sure, but on one condition.”
“What’s that?”
“Logan has to come with us.” She said. I don’t think Logan would leave with us, but I guess it’s worth a try.
“Of course.” I paused and smiled at her. I moved my face in closer to hers and she didn’t move a muscle as I pulled some hair behind her ear. “You are so beautiful, Athena.” I said as our foreheads touched together, our lips almost inches away. “Be with me, Athena. Let’s be together.”
I leaned in and pressed my lips up against hers. The feeling never changed, from the last time we kissed. It was still as amazing as before. I felt myself starting to get hot, just from it, but I pulled away, just staring at her.
“Yes.” Athena said, smiling at me, her cheeks red from probably blushing so much. “I’ll be with you.” Once she said those words, my heart started to beat very fast.
I turned, to start the car. This was going to be a new journey for both of us. A fresh start for all three of us.
_________________________________________________________________
Athena’s P.O.V
My heart was still fluttering as we drove back to my house. My dream had come true, but I still didn’t believe it was real. Ricky was holding my hand tight as he drove. I can’t believe I was agreeing to this. Leaving with Ricky, starting fresh, hopefully, my brother would come with us.
I pulled out my phone and texted Logan that I was on my way home, making sure that Mom wouldn’t freak out and get upset over what I was going to do. Even with my Dad finally home, I wanted to leave with Ricky.
As he pulled into my driveway and got out of the car and walked over the other side of the car. Ricky smiled at me as I leaned in to give him a kiss. “I’ll be right back.” I said as I headed up the drive way and into my house.
I quickly walked into Logan’s room and closed the door behind me. “Finally, you’re back.” Logan said as he sat up onto his bed. “Dad wouldn’t tell me anything until you got here.”
“Well, I’m not staying for long.” I spoke. Logan had a shocked look on his face.
“Wait, what do you mean you aren’t staying long? Athena, what’s going on?” He asked as I looked down at my phone, Ricky sent me a text.
Everything alright?
I replied back saying to give me an extra few minutes. I took a deep breath. “I’m leaving. With Ricky. Tonight.” I said. My brother stood up and looked confused. “Look, I want you to come with us. Ricky is leaving to travel across the country and find somewhere to settle down. He asked me to go and I said yes, but I told him I wanted you to come as well.”
Logan started to pace in his room, back and forth. He stopped in front of me, trying to understand what I had just said to him. “So, you are going to leave with Ricky and never come back?”
“Yes.”
“You want to do that now, even when Dad finally came back?” Logan asked, again. “You are sure you want to do this?” He asked again.
“I’m sure, but I don’t want to leave you behind.” He sighed and threw his hand in his hair.
“Fuck it, let’s go.” He said as a smiled showed on my face, he grabbed his back pack and started to pack. I ran into my room and did the same. I grabbed my crocheting hooks and some of my books, but I stopped when I saw the photograph I had. It was a picture of all of us, 5 years ago. My parents, Logan and me. When we were at our happiness. I threw it into the bag and packed more clothes.
My bedroom didn’t look empty, but it wasn’t the same. I grabbed my box underneath my bed and took all the cash I had. It wasn’t much, but I had saved it over time with babysitting the past 2 summers. Tossing that into the bag and opening my window.
Logan was already waiting for me and grabbed my first bag, heading over to Ricky, who parked on the side. Before I was able to get out of the window, I heard my name. “Athena, wait.”
I turned and saw my father. He didn’t come to pull me back into my bedroom, he gave me a hug and handed me two things. The family laptop and a letter addressed to Logan and I. “I love you and your brother so much. Keep in contact with me and I’ll meet up with you guys soon.”
I was confused. “What do you mean, dad?”
“I’ll explain later, but go. I’ll be calling you guys in the morning.” He gave me a kiss on the forehead and helped me out of my window. I ran over to the car and got into the back seat, as I watched my childhood home become distance from between us.
I took a deep breath and looked out the window. This path was a new one, something that I never thought would happen.

Unforgotten – Chapter 3

If you haven’t read Chapter 2, here is the link:

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2019/01/21/unforgotten-chapter-2/

Athena’s P.O.V.
‘This is Tanner, leave a message and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.’ As I heard my father’s voice spoke. I waited until the beep sounded.
“Daddy, we need you. Mom’s been drinking and it’s getting worse. Please come back. I love you, daddy.” I said, leaving another voicemail. It’s been a few days since Logan and I read some of our mom’s journals.
I haven’t touched them since, neither has Logan. I think we are scared to read on. I have more questions than anyone I know. Who was this James? Why don’t we see our aunt? And why does my mother think that she’s a vampire?
I took a deep breath and cleared my head as I walked back into school. I went straight to my locker and grabbed my history book. My phone started to buzz and I quickly grabbed it and checked to see who it was. Ricky.
I ignored it. It’s just best. I just don’t want to get into anymore trouble with my mom. I placed my phone into my pocket, but before I was able to, someone shoved me into the locker, causing me to fall and drop my history book and cell phone onto the ground.
As I turned to get up, I saw Hannah, one of the popular girls who really doesn’t like me. “Fucking move freak!” She yelled as her and her other two girls, Casey and Stella, started to laugh with her. “Honestly, you would be better off dead.”
She turned and walked away, a few group of people started to come around us, but I not sure what got into me, but I fought back. I got up, grabbed a chuck of Hannah’s hair and threw her onto the ground. I just kept punching her, before I felt someone pull me off of her.
“Principles office now!” The teacher who pulled Hannah away from me said, but Hannah was able to get one last punch in before I was able to speak. Knocking me right in the face, I could feel the blood coming out of my nose.
I tried to break free, but I then saw Logan, who had his arms wrapped around me, trying to hold me back. “Let me get in one more punch!” I yelled as he slowly started to walk me down to the office. “I then paused and had him look at me. “She told me that I would be better off dead. Please let me get in one more punch!”
Logan loosen his grip as I broke free and was able to give her one last punch, before Logan pulled me back. I got her right in her left eye, it was starting to turn red as we walked away.
Once we were in the nurse’s office, she took a look at my nose, thank god it wasn’t broken, but she said it was going to bruise for a little bit. Logan sat outside the nurses office and I sat down next to him.
“What the hell got into you?” Logan asked as I looked down at my shoes, which had a few drops of dried blood on them.
“I don’t know.” I answered. I really didn’t know. With everything going on, I don’t know why I finally stood up for myself. Now, the only think I could think of was what phone call mom would be getting from her home office.
Hannah walked out of the principles office with a smirk on her face. I glared at her, as I could see her black eye had started to form around her left eye. “Athena and Logan. Get into my office.” Principle LaMore said as we both stood up and walked in.
We both took a seat and Principle LaMore sat down and started to rub his scalp. “Look, I know that this is the beginning of the school year, but we can’t keep having this happen, Athena.” He sighed as I waited to see what the punishment was going to be. “Here is the thing. We are going to suspend you for 3 days, just like Hannah, but if it happens again, both of you are going to be expelled.”
“Wait, what?” I said and then paused for a second. It didn’t make sense. I haven’t done anything to get me into trouble, but for this being the first time I’ve done anything, next time something happens to me, I’m getting expelled? “So, you are saying that if I do something like this again, we are both expelled? That doesn’t make any sense! She has been bullying me since day one!”
“Watch your tone. That is our new policy. In order to keep our school in order, we have to be very strict. You are lucky that all you got was a suspension. Now, I have informed your mother and she is on the way. Go sit out in the office and wait for her.” He said as Logan and I both got up and walked out to sit back in the office.
Logan grabbed something from his pocket, when he pulled it out, it was my phone. It was ringing and it was dad. I quickly grabbed it from his hand and placed it in between us when I answered. “Daddy?!” I said as I waited to here this voice.
“Hey sweetie. Everything okay? I just got a voicemail saying that you guys got into a fight.” Our father said.
“Yes, it’s a long story, but we need you. Mom isn’t acting normal.” I spoke.
“I know, I’m on my way. There is something I need to tell you all. Something very important.” He said as we heard another voice in the background. “I have to go, but I will see you kids soon, I love you both.”
“We love you too, dad.” Logan said as the line went dead. I was about to put my phone into my pocket, but I stopped when I saw our mother approach us.
“Don’t put that back in your pocket, Athena. You both have lost your phone. Now, let’s go.” She said. She seemed back to normal, but not completely. Once we were in the car, it was complete silence. Logan usually sat up front, but this time, he sat out back with me.
I was scared to know what was going to happen. I was never one to get into trouble, but I felt Logan place his hand on top of mine and it made me feel that everything was going to be fine.
_____________________________________________________________
Logan’s P.O.V
Mom, Athena, and I just sat at the kitchen table. Athena’s bruise on her face was darken in. Mom was holding her head in her hands. She had us sit at the table, It’s been silent for awhile.
“So, why are we at the table again?” I asked, crossing my arms. My mother didn’t move a muscle. I sighed, but before I were going to speak again, the door opened and there stood our father.
“Daddy!” Athena shouted and rose up from her seat as fast as she could to hug dad. I got up to hug him too, but mom didn’t move a muscle. Dad hugged us as tight as he could. I missed him. We used to do a lot together, same with Athena.
“I missed you both so much.” He said as Athena and him shed a tear. I saw Dad look up at Mom, but she still didn’t move a muscle. He let go of us and walked over to Mom, throwing his arms around her. “And of course, I missed you, hunny.”
“You lied to me.” I heard mom spoke as she got up, pulled away from dad’s arms and walked away. Athena and I looked at each other and then dad, who threw his hands into the air.
“I should’ve known that was gonna happen.” He said as I gave him a look. He noticed and look a deep breath. “Let me go talk to your mother and fix everything with her and then we can talk.” He left the room and went to go find our mom.
“What did Dad lie about?” Athena asked, but I shrugged. Athena headed to her room, but I decide to listen into the conversation that was about to happen between mom and him. Athena noticed and decided to join me. “We shouldn’t do this.” She said.
“If you don’t want to, I’ll do it.” I whispered as Athena nodded and headed back into her room. I then placed my ear to the door.
“Jade, let me explain.” I heard my father spoke.
“No, you lied to me saying that you were sick, just like your sister and then you come back and don’t tell me about it?!? I have been worried sick and have been working my ass off, since you decided to find your fucking sister!” Mom yelled, I looked into the key hole of the door and could see my mother pacing back any forth.
“I’m sorry about that, but babe, I have some amazing news to share with you.” Dad said stopping my mom dead in her tracks. “James is alive.” My mother looked at him and covered her mouth shaking her head.
“No, that’s impossible.” My mother spoke.
“He’s been with Marie this entire time.” Dad paused. “She turned him before he died. She came back wanting to meet the twins, but wanted to see James and she found him half dead.”
“Then why am I just know finding this out!” Mom snapped. Dad threw his hands up in the air.
“Because I know deep down you still loved him.” Both of my parents stood silent. Mom turn away from him. Until Dad finally spoke. “I knew it. Why don’t you soak up this information while I explain the kids why I was gone.”
Dad was about to open the door, but Mom pulled his arm. I was about to run back to my bedroom. Not before I heard this. “I did love him, but I love you. Please, let me tell the kids.”
The door was about to open, but I ran so fast that my heart was beating faster as I ran towards my room. I had closed my door, before I heard. “Athena! Logan! Can we see in you the living room!” Mom answered. I was not ready for this, I just hoped that both Athena and I seem surprised when they tell us the news.
__________________________________________________________________
Athena’s P.O.V.
Logan and I sat on the couch, waiting for someone to speak. Dad and Mom were whispering to each other, but we couldn’t make out what we were saying.
“So, what is it? I have homework to do.” Logan spoke up and our parents turned to him.
“Okay, so we need you both to just understand where we are coming from when we tell you this.” Dad said as I got a little worried. What if it’s about are Aunt? Or that James guy.
“There is something that we have never told you and we did it to protect you, but now that you guys will be 16 in a few more days, we figured you would understand the situation a little better then when you were littler.” Mom took a deep breath. “Your father has an younger sister.”
“So, we have an aunt?” I questioned.
“Yes, her name is Marie and the reason why she isn’t in our life, is because of her condition.” Dad explained.
“What condition? Why haven’t you told us this?” Logan snapped back, I could see that all this information that we read in mom’s journals, might be true.
“She’s a vampire.” The room was silent.
“You’re shitting me, right?” Logan said. He got up and looked at both of our parents. ” I can’t believe you guys lied to us. Now, I’m kinda glad we read your journal’s, at least they were honest on what had happen to our aunt.”
Mom’s face flushed. Dad looked at her in shock. “Why didn’t you burn them, like we agreed?” I could see Dad getting very annoyed with Mom.
“I-I didn’t have the heart to, because I didn’t want to-”
“Forget him, you mean?” Dad snapped at her.
“I told you that I-” Dad interrupt her. I got up and decided to leave the room.
“You love me, but I know deep down that you wished the twins weren’t mine.” I heard, place my back up against the hallway wall. “I’ve done so much for you, Jade. I’ve kept so much in over the years. I’ve done everything you have asked, but I know you aren’t happy.”
“I am happy, you just assume that I’m not! I missed you so much and I was so pissed that you didn’t include me in why you left in the first place!” Mom yelled at him. I slowly started to walk to my room, I didn’t want to hear any more yelling for today.
I walked into my bedroom and closed the door. I laid on my bed and checked my phone. I then dialed Ricky’s number.
“Thank god you call. Please don’t hang up, can we talk?” Ricky spoke.
“Pick me up at the stop sign on the next street over.” I said as I hung up the phone and grabbed a jacket. I dug in my closet to find the blanket I had crochet for Ricky. I’ve been saving it for something special, but I’ve waited long enough to give it to him.
Grabbing everything I needed, I jumped out of my window, sneaking past my brother’s room and running down the street to the stop sign, where Ricky was waiting. I got into his car. Ricky smiled at me as we drove off.

~Chapter 2~

Athena’s P.O.V
“Why are we cleaning out the garage, Mom?” Logan asked as we were all seated at the kitchen table. Mom was putting eggs and bacon onto our plates.
“Because, we need to get rid of some stuff in there. I don’t know when your father is coming back, but money has been really tight and I don’t want to go into you guys college funds to help keep us afloat.” Mom said as she poured herself some more coffee.
“I can get a job. We don’t have to sell our stuff.” Logan said as our mother shock her head ‘no’.
“Neither of you should get a job to help me out. Focus on school and I’ll take care of the bills.” Mom said as I finished breakfast. “Athena, I have some bad news. I won’t be able to take you to the craft fair next week. I’m really sorry, but work has been crazy and I have to work on your birthdays too.”
“That’s okay, Mom.” I said, my expression sadden. It was my favorite event that my mom and I would go to, but I guess we will have to try again next year. I got up from the table and pushed my chair in. “I’ll go start on cleaning the garage.”
Mom nodded, but her office phone started to rang as she quickly ran into the next room. I turned and walked out into the garage.
The garage was a mess, with boxes on top of boxes. Over to the left stood Logan and I’s very first bikes. Dad didn’t want us to get rid of them and that we should keep them for when we have kids.
I walked over to the back of the garage and figured I would start with the boxes that weren’t labeled, but there was something that caught my eye, something I had never seen before. A small wooden chest.
I don’t remember seeing something like this, but I was curious to know what laid inside. I moved a few boxes that sat in front of it. As I got closer to the wooden chest, all I could see was that it was very dusty. Mom and Dad must of forgot about it because it looks like it hasn’t been touched in a long time.
I was about to open it, when I heard a voice. “Athena, you in here?” Crap. It was Ricky. I stayed hidden a little longer, hoping he would just give up and leave me alone. After a few minutes, I heard him walk away. I sighed in relief.
I looked back down at the chest and opened it slowly. I was amazed to see how many books there was in here. As I picked up one and looked over the cover, I saw that there was no title or author on it. I opened the book and saw the inside.
My eyes got bigger when I saw that it wasn’t just any type of book, but a diary. Not just anyone’s diary, but my moms. I quickly put the book back and then closed the wooden chest. I didn’t want anyone to walk in on me reading my mothers thoughts.
I was too curious. I cleaned off the chest and quickly snuck it into my room. I place it on my floor. I then took the chest and placed it in my closet, quickly shutting the door before I heard. “There you are. I have been looking everywhere for you.”
I turned around and saw Ricky, standing in my doorway. “What are you doing here?” I snapped, he gazed at me as faced him. “I have to go clean the garage, so either tell me what you want or leave.”
He sighed as I crossed my arms. “Can we just talk, so I can explain myself?” He asked as I rolled my eyes.
“Fine, but we can talk out in the garage.” I said, pushing him out of the way and walking back outside and towards the garage. I really wasn’t in the mood to talk to him and have him explain that my mother was stopping him from expressing his feelings.
Once we reached the garage I started to go through a box, as I waited for Ricky to say something. It was quiet for a little bit until he finally spoke.
“I know that your brother told you why I couldn’t tell you how I felt because of your mother, but I’m going to tell you now.” He paused and I heard him sigh. “I love you, but I think it’s best that we just stay-” Before he could finish, I had to know. I don’t know what got into me, but I walked over to him and kissed him.
He was my first ever kiss, but it was worth it. It was breath taking. I felt my arms wrapping around his neck and his wrapped around my waist. I didn’t want it to stop, but he finally pulled away. Our foreheads were still pressed together. I finally opened my eyes, both of us still trying to catch our breath.
“Wow.” I said as I saw a small smile appeared on his face.
“Why did you do that?” He asked as I pulled away and thought about it. I then realize that I just kissed Ricky.
“I-I don’t know.” I said, sitting on the cold cement floor. “I just thought that if I knew what it was like to kiss you, I would be able to get over you easily, but I don’t think I can now.” I hugged my knees and covered my head.
I felt Ricky place his hand on my back. Rubbing it back and forth as he sat down beside me. “I don’t think I’ll be able to either.” I looked up at him as he smiled at me. He leaned in and kissed me again. We were so lost in kissing each other that we got interrupted.
“Athena!” We stopped kissing and turned to see my mother standing in front of us. “Athena Rose! Get your ass inside, now!” She demanded.
Never have I ever seen my mother get so mad before. I was scared. I quickly got up and ran inside. I ran passed Logan, I started to cry, but I didn’t know why.
“Athena, what’s wrong?” I heard Logan asked as I shut my bedroom door. I lean back against the door and fell to the ground. I didn’t understand why my mother was acting like this.
____________________________________________________________________
Ricky’s P.O.V.
I stood up after Athena ran inside. I was face to face with her mother. I remember the last conversation I had with her, it was the night of graduation. The night I planned on telling Athena how I felt, but her mother told me it would be best if I stayed away and did my own thing.
“Look, I’m-” I figured I would apologize, but Jade had interrupt me before I could.
“Don’t sorry me! I told you to stay away from her! Now, she is going to think that you too are going to be together forever!” She yelled, a thought popped into my mind. I knew about her past because my mom and her were close friends, but they stopped talking for some reason.
I wanted to say it, but I kept my mouth shut. I didn’t want to bring up James…
“I’m sorry! I’m sorry that I fell in love with your daughter.” I said as I tired to stopped myself, but didn’t. “To be honest, but I think I remember being told that you fell in love with your best friend and your mother didn’t seem to have a problem with it.”
She looked shocked when the words came out of my mouth. I didn’t know what came over me, but deep down, it needed to be said.
“Leave Ricky! I never want you around Athena or this house again!” She screamed as I walked away. Logan caught me, before I got into my car.
“Ricky, wait!” He said as I opened my door. “What the hell is going on?”
I put my head down and looked back up at him. “Take care of your sister.” I got into my car, started my engine and drove off. The one thing that popped in my mind was Athena. How beautiful she was and how her smile brighten my day. Just seeing her, made my world stop.
I felt a tear slip, but I quickly wiped it away. I pulled over and cut my engine. I placed my head on my hand, that was still on the steering wheel. I just hope that Athena was alright.
I pulled out my phone and tried to call her, but it just kept ringing until it reached to her voicemail.
“Hey its Athena. Leave a message!”
“Athena, I love you. Don’t forget that.” I then hung up, turned my engine back on and drove home.
____________________________________________________
Logan’s P.O.V.
I walked back in my house, after Ricky left. My mother was in front of Athena’s door. “Athena, get out here!” She shouted.
Our mother has never been a yeller, unless I did something back, but for Athena, she didn’t know how to handle it. I walked over to my mother she turned and looked at me quick, before going back and knocking on her door.
“What are you doing, Mom?” I asked. She turned and glared at me.
“You.” She pointed to me. “You had to keep him around when I told you no! You said that you would keep Ricky away!” She slapped my face.
“What the hell!” I yelled. “What has gotten into you, Mom. What is so wrong about Ricky?”
“He is going to make her think that they will live happily ever after and then break her heart!” She said, I then noticed that she was walking funny.
She was drunk. We have never seen our mother drunk, so this was a first. I noticed that our parents wine collection was disappearing, but I didn’t think my mother had drank almost half of it.
“You’re drunk, aren’t you?” I confronted her. She then turned and walked away into her room.
Once she closed her door. I quietly went to Athena’s door. “Athena, its just me. Open up.” I said as the door slowly opened. As I looked into my sister’s face, her eyes were red from crying. I walked into her room and closed the door.
Athena hugged me as tight as she could. I didn’t mind, but it made me angry that Athena was so scared. “I want daddy.” I heard her say. I missed him, too.
I waited until she finally let go of me to speak, but there was nothing that I felt that would help her. She sat on her bed and I sat down next to her. I noticed something that was peaking out of her closet. I got up and opened it.
“What’s that?” I asked as I looked at the weird little wooden chest. “I’ve never seen this before, where did get this?” I looked back at Athena, as she wiped her tears.
“It was in the garage. It’s a bunch of journals.” She spoke. I looked back and grabbed the chest from the closet and placed it on the floor.
“Who’s journals?” I asked as I opened the wooden chest and grabbed one of the many books that hid inside.
“Moms.” I looked up back at Athena. “I know I shouldn’t of taken them, but I was curious and I feel that she is hiding something from us.”
Athena got down from her bed and sat on the floor with me. “These go back to when she was a teenager.” Athena explained. I opened one of them and she was right. Mom’s name was inside for sure.
“How do you know that?” I asked, but when I looked on the outside of the book, on the edge of the book, was a year. No date or month, just the year. “Have you read any of these?”
Athena shook her head no. “I haven’t yet.” She then looked through and grabbed the earliest year. That must of been when mom started to write in journals. “We should read this together?” Athena asked.
I nodded as we sat together and turned the first page of her journal:

2004 – June
Today, I finally graduated from high school. It took long enough, but I’m glad it’s over. James and I are going to move in to our own place. We figured it would be cheaper than living in a dorm with some strangers.
I wish he knew how I felt about him. I love him, more than he knows. I’m just glad he has stayed by my side after all the stuff that happened the night my sister died.
But I know he only sees me as a friend, nothing more. Or does he?
I figured I would write in a journal as a fresh start. After what happened when I was 12… I know it has been years, but I still have nightmares of that night. The night I lost my sister and my virginity…
I’m glad Lucas is in hell for what he did…

2004 – July
We are moved in, finally! I get to enjoy the short time of what’s left of summer before I have to go back to school.
I got my first job! I’ll be working at the bookstore. My mom knows the owner and thankfully he was hiring. I think that would be a wonderful place to start a job. It’s only going to be part time, so that I can go to college. Not sure what I want to do, but I need to figure out quick…
The night mares just don’t seem to go away… About that night… I feel terrible to abort that baby, but I had too. I wasn’t going to raise a child that came from one night that I was drugged and raped…
James says that I have to move on, but I can’t. So, tonight, we are going to have our first ever party at our house. I figured a night of drinking and dancing with friends can help me forget.
Savannah can’t come over, but that’s okay. She’s got little Ricky to take care of. I feel bad for her…
Connor still doesn’t want anything to do with Ricky that he moved to LA AFTER he was born. I still can’t believe that his parents tried to pay Savannah to have an abortion…
I’ll write later, need to go to work!
______________________________________________________________
Athena’s P.O.V.
We both looked up from our mother’s journal. I wanted to cry. I never knew that about her or Ricky. Logan pulled out his phone and checked the time, it was almost 2pm. An hour since my mother was caught Ricky and I kissing.
“That’s sad though.” I broke the silence. Logan looked at me.
“About mom or Ricky’s father wanting his mother to get rid of him?”
“About Ricky.” I paused. “I’ve always wondered why he never talked about his dad, now I know why.”
“I know.” Logan replied. “Who’s James?” I wondered about it too. The way mom was talking about him, made me believe that she really did love him, but she never talked about him. What happened to him? Did they fall in love?
“I don’t know, but I want to read the 2008 one.” I said, grabbing it and flipping a few pages until I saw our dad’s name. “Look! Here’s dad’s name!”
Logan looked closely, but once he read a little in, he turned the page. “I don’t think we need to know about that.”
“What was it?” I asked.
“Something that should stay between mom and dad.” Logan replied as I peaked over and read a little before going to the next page. “Yep, let’s leave that there.” I never wanted to picture my mother talking about her first time with dad, but now, it was frozen in my brain.
“Do you want to keep reading?” Logan asked. I nodded as we looked back down on the next page in our mom’s journal:

2008 – January
Tanner took me out, last night, but I ended up in James’ bed. We made love and I don’t know what to think about it.
Tanner has been so sweet to me and has made it clear he wants to be more than friends, but I just don’t know. James took advantage of me when I was drunk and let it happened. It brings me a flashback back to that horrible night when I was 12.
I just don’t know…
2008 – February
Well, I don’t know how to say this, but I’m pregnant…
I don’t know who the father is. I have a feeling it is Tanner’s but still.
I feel like I should be on one of those shows that call out women who sleeps with more than one man and finds out that they are or aren’t the father.
I didn’t mean for it to happen. I’m scared and don’t know what to do… What happens when I tell them? Both James and Tanner.
God, I feel like such a whore. No more heavy drinking… Not just for my health, but for my future baby.
2008 – March
I told them…
Actually, Tanner’s sister saw me buying the tests with Savannah. I moved out, too.
James called me a whore for sleeping with both of them, but he took advantage of me when I was extremely drunk! How is that my fault? I don’t know why I got so drunk, so it’s just as much my fault as it is his.
Tanner has been really sweet towards me. He’s already starting to save up money for the little one. It makes me feel that he is going to be a wonderful father. I have a deep feeling that he is the father of our child.
At least I can try and be a good mom, unlike mine. She decided to not tell me she was getting married and that she was pregnant! Whatever, I’m done being lied too.
__________________________________________________________________________________
Athena’s P.O.V.
“I can’t read any more, Logan.” I said, putting the book back in the chest. “W-We could’ve been someone else’s kids?” Logan the book from me and went through a few pages and then he then read out loud.
“Don’t worry. James’ isn’t our father, just listen.” Logan cleared his throat. “I found out I was having twins and they are both Tanners. James can’t have kids because of all the abuse he suffered as a child. I felt horrible that James wouldn’t have any kids, but I’m more shocked that I’m having twins.”
“Thank god.” I sighed in relief. “I have had enough reading. Too much we have found out at once.” I said as Logan kept looking back into the book. He was skipping pages, then looked up at me.
“Dad’s never mention in having a sister to you, has he?” I shock my head. Logan took a deep breath in. “She’s alive, sort of.”
“What? What do you mean sort of?” I asked as I took the book from him and saw what he saw.
‘I don’t believe it. The only family Tanner had was now gone… More like dead, as in vampire.’
“Vampire??”

~Chapter 1~

Athena’s P.O.V
First day of school, I’ll be a Junior, this year. Same as my brother. I groaned when the sunlight hit my face. I looked over at my alarm clock and saw that it had just started to go off. I wasn’t ready for this first day, I missed my dad.
My dad left awhile ago, for a business trip I think, but he hasn’t answered my phone calls or have told mom when he was going to come home. Usually, when its the first day, my dad would walk into my room and wake me up, as he was excited to get us kids out to school.
He would then make an awesome breakfast and drive us to school, wishing us to have a great day, but this was the first time he has missed a day like this. I got up and opened my closet, picking out an outfit out of the new school clothes that my mom and I got a few weeks before.
I decided that one of my WWE Lita shirts would do with some shorts, since I had a feeling it was going to be hot out. My phone started buzzing, as I looked over, it was a text from Ricky, my best friend.
You need a ride? he texted.
I ignored it, he and I have known each other since we were babies, but since he has started going to college, we haven’t talked much since. I wondered why he would just message me out of the blue like this?
Someone knocked on my door as I tossed my phone on my bed and grabbed my backpack. “I’m coming!” I said, as I looked and saw my brother come in.
“Ricky’s giving us a ride. Why didn’t you message him back?” Logan asked as I zipped up my bag and threw it over my shoulders.
“I wanted to walk.” I lied. I really didn’t want to talk to Ricky. I looked over and saw my phone go off. I looked at my caller ID. It was my dad. I quickly grabbed the phone and answered.
“D-Daddy??” I asked, I had a tear escape from my eyes.
“Yes, how’s my baby girl?” He asked. My heart was overjoyed. Logan’s eyes got wide as I put the call on speaker.
“We miss you, daddy. Logan’s here too.” I spoke, wiping a tear or two away from my face.
“Hey dad.” Logan said.
“I miss you both so much. I wanted to call and wish you a great first day. I’m sorry if I can’t make it.” He explained. Logan looked at me, I bet he could see the smile on my face, just hearing my dad’s voice. “I’ll be home as soon as I can. Something happened with my trip and it might be awhile longer.”
“How long? You okay, daddy?” I panicky asked.
“I’m not sure, sweetie. I’ve been feeling under the weather and I can’t travel until I’m better. I’ve got to go, but I love you too so much.” My dad hung up the phone as I finished wiping my tears. Logan pulled me in to hug me.
A car horn honked from outside. Logan pulled away and left. “I’ll be right out, just have to grab my stuff.” Logan said. I walked out to the front of my house, where Ricky’s car was parked. I got in the back seat as Ricky turned his head and gave me a smile.
He looked different, he cut his long blond hair and doesn’t look like he has shaved his face in awhile. “How are you, Athena?” He asked, but I looked towards my house, hoping that my brother would come out sooner.
“Fine.” I said, just to shut him up. Finally my brother got out of the house. Logan opened the passage’s door and got in.
“Hey Ricky, thanks again for giving us a ride.” Logan said as I rolled my eyes. “My mom said that if you need gas money, we can give you some.”
“Naw, don’t worry about it.” Ricky said, driving away from our house. “Actually, wanted to know if you guys wanted to come over Saturday to a party?”
“Hell, yeah we would!” Logan excitedly said.
“I’ll pass.” I snapped, crossing my arms as I noticed Ricky had glance at me through the mirror.
“Come on, you don’t have to drink, it will be fun.” Logan tried to convince me.
“No, I-I have a date.” I lied. Why the hell did I just say that.
“You don’t date.” Ricky said as he turned into our high school. “You are coming, I’ll bring you home whenever you want to go.” He stopped the car.
“Thanks, but no thanks.” I got out of the car and quickly slammed the car door, walking as fast as I can into the school.
“Athena, wait up!” I heard Logan shout as I saw him pacing himself for running after me. “What was that all about?”
“I don’t want to talk about it.” I snapped and Logan dropped the subject. Logan and I walked to our homeroom, we had the same homeroom since coming to high school. We both sat in the back of the class as Ms. Eddy counted to see who was here.
I decided to putt out a mini project I was working on. I started to crochet a bookmark as Logan played on his phone. Ms. Eddy passed out our schedules and smiled when she saw me. “Working on a new project already, Athena?” She was the one to get me into crocheting, since it was a way to stay stress free.
“Yeah, I’ve been trying some different one’s in the book you gave me.” I returned the smile and pulled out the finished product of what I was working on.
“Beautiful, I love it.” She dropped the schedule on my desk. “Here you go, I’ll be seeing you at 8th period.” The bell rang and everyone in homeroom, grabbed their stuff and left. My brother took my schedule and peaked at it.
“We have English, Algebra 2, and History together.” He handed my schedule back. “Come on, sis.”
________________________________________________________________
Logan’s P.O.V.
“Why can’t I go?” I argued with my mother. “Just because Athena doesn’t want to go, I can’t go? This is bullshit!”
“Logan! Watch your language!” my mother sighed. “I feel safer if you both went together. I know you think you can take care of yourself, but I don’t trust Ricky enough to keep an eye on you.”
I through my arms in my hair. It was totally crap that she didn’t want to let me go by myself. “Fine, what if I get Athena to go?” I asked.
“Then you can go, just make sure you are back before 11.” She then went back to looking at the computer. Her office phone rang. “Let me know what the plan is.” She answered the phone and I walked out of her office and headed down to Athena’s room.
I walked right in, Athena was on sitting on her bed crocheting, like she normally does. “Thanks for knocking.”
“I’m sorry, but can you please come to the party with me, tonight? Mom won’t let me go by myself.” I spoke, checking my phone as Ricky had just texted me that he was on his way. “Pretty please, Athena?”
“I already said no.” She snapped as she kept crocheting.
“I’ll tell mom about your habit.”
She looked at me in confusion. “What?”
“You heard me, I’ll tell mom you’ve been smoking pot.” Her eyes widen, she stopped what she was doing.
“How do you know about-” I stopped her from finishing her sentence. “I’m not the only one who uses the treehouse for that.” I replied with a grin on my face.
I remember the first time I caught her, she didn’t see me, but I’ve been low on pot and come to find out that she’s been up there smoking it. I never thought that my sister would do anything like that.
She rolled her eyes and placed her crochet stuff on her night stand. “Fine, but I’m not staying long.” I grabbed her sweater that was hanging and threw it to her.
“You might want to change, its’ getting chilly out.” I said before leaving her room. I popped my head back in. “Forgot to tell you that Ricky is bringing us. He’ll be here in 2 minutes.” Athena crossed her arms and gave me a dirty look.
I slowly walked into my mom’s office, she looked tired, but when she saw me she gave me a small smile. “So, is she going?” My mom asked.
“Yeah, she changed her mind. It’s still okay if we go, right?” I asked.
“As long as you are home before 11. Make sure that you both have your phones and you let me know when you arrive and when you are on your way.” She said, sitting back down in her chair before answering another call that was coming in.
I heard Ricky honk, and Athena was already waiting for me outside. She had a dress on, which was shocking because she normally doesn’t wear dresses or makeup, for that matter. I ignored and we started to walk over to Ricky’s car and he drove us off to the party.
___________________________________________________________________
Ricky’s P.O.V.
My party was going pretty hard. I had a lot of girls come up to me, but the one I was interested in, was ignoring me. She looked hot, especially for a girl who never liked to dress up. I poured two shots and walked over with them to her.
She crossed her arms and looked away, when I sat down next to her. “Seriously, Athena, please just talk to me.”
“Why should I talk to you?” She snapped at me. I handed her a shot, but she still didn’t look at me.
“Tell me what I did wrong! Please, I’m begging you. I want to fix this.” She rolled her eyes and got up and walked away. I seriously couldn’t remember what I did. I got up and followed her outside.
“Athena, stop running from me!” I yelled, grabbing her wrist as she pulled away and looked into my eyes.
“I told you that I loved you and you said nothing! Just ignored me and said you were busy with college!” She screamed. She told me before I left for college and I didn’t know what to say to her. I loved her too, but her mother warned me to stay away. I didn’t have the heart to tell her.
“I’m sorry that I didn’t explain why I didn’t say anything. It’s more complicated than that.” I said pausing. “I’m never going to be good enough for you. I figured ignoring your feelings would make it easier for you to forget.”
Athena started to cry a little more. “Ricky, it’s not that simple.” She spoke softy, I tried to hug her, but she put her hand out in front of me. “Can we please find Logan so we can leave?”
I nodded as I went back inside to get Logan.
I felt so stupid. Why couldn’t I just tell her? I wanted to be the only one for her, but I don’t want to ruin our friendship, which was already on the rocks. Maybe I just needed to find someone for me, so that I can help her move on.

Logan’s P.O.V
Ricky came to get me and it was all silent in the car ride home. I figured I would leave it alone, unless something bad happened.
I thank Ricky for the ride home and Athena never turned back to look at Ricky. I didn’t understand why she was acting like this. Maybe it’s because dad has been gone for so long? I followed her into her room. “Is everything okay?” I asked as she turned and nodded. I didn’t believe it for a second.
“Seriously, what is wrong?” I snapped, crossing my arms. Athena sat down on her bed. Taking off her shoes and jacket.
“Don’t worry about it, its nothing.” She snapped. I rolled my eyes, this is what she would normally do.
“Put your shoes back on, let’s go to the treehouse.” I said as she looked surprised. She got her shoes back on and followed me to the backyard, where stood the tree that held the tree house we all build together.
For years, Athena and I would come up here to talk or to read, but it has been transformed into a mini smoke place for me and sometimes Athena. Our mom has no idea that’s what we do up here, but my dad knows and says as long as I don’t get caught, he’s okay with it.
I climbed up the treehouse first and then helped Athena get inside. She sat on the right side of the treehouse, that’s where she would normally sit. I grabbed a little bit of pot and started to grind it up for a joint.
“Seriously, what’s wrong? And don’t lie to me. I’ll find out one way or another.” I said, looking up at her for a second. A faint smile appeared on her face.
“You sounded like dad.” She said as I returned the smile. “I miss him, Logan.” I nodded in agreement. Don’t get me wrong, we love our parents, but we love it when all of us are here together. Mom has been busy stressed out on trying to pay the bills, that she hasn’t had the time to spend it with us.
It doesn’t bother me, but Athena doesn’t really have friends expect Ricky and I. Although, Ricky and Athena seemed to not be talking as much as they used to. I decided I was going to break the awkward silence. “Is there something going on between you and Ricky?” I asked, finishing up the small joint I rolled.
Athena sighed as I put the joint in my mouth and lit it. “I-I-I told him how I felt and he didn’t say anything about it.” She softly said, as I passed the joint to her. I knew she had feeling for him, but I figured she would be too shy to say anything to him. I did know that when our mom found out, she told Ricky to stay away, Athena doesn’t know, but my mom doesn’t want history to repeat itself.
“Look, I’m just gonna come out and tell you this because I love you and I am your twin.” I took a deep breathe. “Mom told him to stay away from you, before he left college. She didn’t want your heart to be broken.”
Angry flushed her face. He handed the joint back to me, she wanted to pace back and forth, but there was no room to do so. “I can’t believe she did that! I’m tired of her treating me like a little flower!” I started to laugh, when she said flower, but it’s the truth. “It’s not funny!”
“Okay, I’m sorry, but I didn’t think you were going to say flower.” Athena finally started to relax. “Listen, here’s what I think about all this. Yes, your in love with him, but you have never been in love with anyone else. I think you need to put your feelings on the back burner, which I know will be hard to do, but I think that you’ll find someone else and forget about him.”

Unforgotten (Sequel to Unclear) – Intro & Backstory

Hey dearies! So, here is the sequel you have all been waiting for! During last year, I started working on the sequel to Unclear! Although, this one might be a little better than Unclear, it is more ‘clear’.

It you haven’t read Unclear, I will leave the link to all the chapters, just in case you want to catch up and understand what’s going on. 

https://katiesblog96971617.com/2018/07/21/unclear-list-of-chapters/

Unclear is in many points of views, mainly Jade’s, who is the man character. She ends up getting pregnant and trying to find her true feelings of who she really loves and struggles with that and other issues that happened in her past.

Unforgotten is in 3 points of views, Athena, Logan, and Ricky. Athena and Logan are Jade and Tanner’s twins. Ricky is Savannah’s best friend’s son. Each chapter isn’t based off of one person’s point of view, it’s a mix of all three of them and possibly more, but this book is still in the works.

The first chapter will be release next Monday, but I wanted to go into details on what is going on. So, here it is, the intro to Unforgotten:

Jade’s POV

My Love,
It has been too long since you have left. The kids and I are worried sick. I lied to them and told them you were on a business trip, but I can’t keep lying to them. Please Tanner, come back to us. Your family needs you. I want to hear your voice.
The twins will be 16 in two weeks. Please, show up. We all miss you. They want their daddy back and I want my husband back. If not, this will be my last letter to you. I can’t believe you would do this to this family. After everything we have been through.
I have no one left but you and our kids. My mom has forgotten who I am. Have you too? Forgotten everything? Please, call me or the kids. Its been months, Athena thinks you are having an affair with someone. Logan thinks you left this family.
Please, Tanner. If not for me, for the kids.
I love you.
-Jade
I folded up the letter and placed it into the envelope. I grabbed my wine glass and took a sip. It had been almost six months since Tanner left to check on his sister. Last time I heard from him was four months ago, but he told me it wasn’t safe for me to call.
I don’t understand why. Why won’t he just come back?

I wiped the last of my tears. Thank god the kids were already in bed and haven’t seen my tears. I wrote the address on the envelope and left it on my desk. I’ll put it in the mailbox in the morning. I finished off the glass of wine and left it on my nightstand.

I crawled into bed, holding onto his pillow, hoping that one day, he would come back. Not just for me, but this family. I worried that he’ll never return, just like his parents did for him. I wish James was still here. I could really use my best friend, but he’s dead.
I checked my phone and saw it light up. I sat right up when I saw Tanner’s name popped up.

My heart beated faster as I answered it. “Tanner??” I quickly said, I started to cry again. It was silent. I could hear him breathing. “Baby, Tanner. Is that you?” I asked again for an answer, but nothing. “Please, say something!”
“Jade. I can’t come home, ever.” He said, my heart broke into pieces.
“What do you mean you can’t come home?? Tanner, please come home!” I cried more. I could hear Tanner crying in the background as well.
“I’m sorry, but I’m sick.” He said.
“H-How sick?” I asked.
“I’m Marie sick…” He said as I started to cry even more. I knew what Marie was. We haven’t heard from her in a while, so he went to go find her. He can’t be. Marie wouldn’t let him be like that? Would she?
“Don’t hang up, tell me what happened.” I snapped at him. He sighed and cried more.
“I have to go. Just tell the kids I died, but I promise you, I will find a cure for this.” He hung up and I cried into my pillow. Why did this have to happen to us? To this family?

Logan’s POV
I walked away from my mother’s room. I was shocked at what I had overheard. I knew something was going on with dad, but I didn’t know he was sick. I wished my mother didn’t put the call on speaker. Something was up with this family and mom is just going to keep secrets.
I slowly walked back to my room. I paused and stopped at the door next to my room, my sisters door. I thought about waking her and telling her, but I figured I would keep this just to myself. I closed my bedroom door, making sure that I didn’t make a sound.
I got into bed, just thinking about where my dad would be? I had to find him, not just for my mom, but for Athena, my sister. She was daddy’s little girl and it would hurt her more to find out that mom was lying to us, than he was dead.
I figured I would tell her after we both turned 16. One way or another, I will find out where our dad is. Whether it kills me or not, but I will find him.

Next chapter will be out next Monday! If you can’t wait til then, you can always find the book on Wattpad, just search ‘katieasehl’. Not only will you find this book, but other’s that I have also written.
