Sweet and Sour PT3
"Brandi please take a seat." Dr. Burb stated, and she did. Darren and Beau were right by her side, and she felt embarrassed knowing that Darren was going to know all of her problems. They had just decided that they were going to go out, and now this?
"Now, as you know you have a severe delirium syndrome-" He started, and he noticed Brandi tilt her head down in embarrassment He cleared his throat, "But we've actually found something shocking with this, "Since your delirium syndrome is so strange, and different than anything any doctors in even Vernonville have worked with, we're going to try something new. I've teamed up with some doctors form Vernonville and River Blossom, and we've started creating a new medication. We're willing to give you 70,000 dollars for trying this medicine out."
Beau's jaw dropped to the floor, and Darren was too stunned to say anything. Brandi sighed, and looked to her son, "Beau, go wait outside and take Ty too."
"Mom did you hear that?! 70,00! Wipe! We'll be rich!" Beau said in an excited tone.
"Quiet! Maintenant, dehors!" She hissed, and he picked up the baby and quickly got out of the room. She turned her attention to Darren, "You should probably get out too, we're not even married, we haven't even been on one date and I don't need you knowing all my business." She said softly, "Plus you have Dirk to look after." She could feel her self shaking from the stress of this new product and the nerves of Darren being there.
"Dirk's almost grown, and he's doing just fine. Right now you need someone to help you go through this. I'll be there for you Brandi, don't be scared." He said, gently grabbing her hand. She felt her heart flutter but she turned her attention back to the doctor, "What's the catch on this new product?"
"We're not sure if it will work. It could worsen the situation." Dr. Burb replied.
"And you want me to take this? Can't you test it out or something?" She said, and Dr. Burb shook his head, "Pleasantview is against testing on animals. You would be the first person to try it. Brandi, you have a week to decide what you want to do. If this works out you can get money that you really need for your family-"
"My family's just fine." She hissed, then got up and grabbed her bag.
"Ok but really Brandi, think about it. Do you really want your son having to get you to go to the hospital again?" He questioned, but Brandi said nothing, and simply made her way out the door.
When Cassandra arrived back from her walk, she got her key out to unlock the door. After doing this she heard the beautiful strumming of the piano playing. But she knew that it wasn't her brother, he has never learned any of those songs. So who could it be? She wondered.
"Dad?!" She shouted, and he got up and gave her a small smile. She ran to him and pulled him into a tight hug, "Dad! Where have you been?"
"Horrible places." He shuddered, "But right now that doesn't matter. Today, let's just have a good time. Is Don here though? I need to talk to him."
Cassandra sighed, "Yeah he's here. Probably upstairs."
"What's wrong honey?" He questioned, and she shook her head, "Nothing, go ahead and talk to him. I'll start making a meal for you."
He smiled, then hugged his daughter again. He made his way upstairs slowly to see Don checking himself out in the mirror, "Don..." He said in a cold voice. Don turned and almost jumped at it, "Oh, hey Mortimer."
"Don't you hey me. You killed her...or at least you were part of it." He accused, and Don felt his skin crawl, "Killed who Mortimer? What are you talking about?"
"Don't play games with me!" He hissed, "You were damn well apart of killing Bella, and you will not marry my daughter. You should be thrown in jail for being associated with murder."
"Bella's really dead?" He gulped, and Mortimer rolled his eyes, "Just get out of my house Don, and don't come back unless you want to go to jail. I can't believe what you've done! I was going to give you my families blessing. Don, I hope you..." But he couldn't even bring himself to say any of the vile things he was thinking, "As a Will Wright believer, I forgive all who do wrong, as he forgives me...but even though I forgive you, and everyone else who was apart of hurting my Bella, I will never forget. I don't know what you're going to do, but whatever it is, it will not involve my daughter. Now go."
Don couldn't believe what he was hearing. All the bad actions he chose to do in the past were really coming back to haunt him now, "Mortimer...I can accept that but please, give me a chance to be with Cassandra. I'm sorry I screwed up. I wanted to tell you guys but, I was just scared..."
"You should be scared." Mortimer said bitterly.
"I finally realized that I do love Cassandra, and even though I was apart of killing her mother, and I'm having Nina's baby, I still love her and-"
"You're having another sims baby?" He questioned, and slowly Don nodded. Mortimer sighed, "Get out Don, please just get out." And with nothing left to say, Don did get out. As he trailed down the steps Cassandra looked at him strangely, "Where are you going?"
"Out...I need to get out." He muttered, then closed the door. Cassandra looked toward Mortimer and Alexander was stuffing his face with cookies, "What did you say?"
"Cassandra, that man is having another sims baby." He argued, and Cassandra felt anger stir, "And it's my choice to make if I can live with that or not! I don't know if we're still getting married."
"You do know Cassandra, you know that the answer is no. The two of you are not getting married!" He shouted, and Cassandra was actually stunned by this. Her father had never acted this way before, "What else is it dad? There has to be something else if you're not going to let me marry the man that I love."
Mortimer sighed as tears escaped his eyes, "Just forget it...I'm stressed and right now is not the right time." He said, going to go lie down on a couch. Cassandra brought him a plate of food and some water and took a seat on a different couch, "Dad please, talk to me."
"He was apart of it! He was apart of killing Bella!" Mortimer cried, "And that's something that I just can't forget."
"No, no, he couldn't have..." Cassandra said. Alexander came in the room, "What's wrong you guys?"
"Nothing Alex, why don't you go play upstairs and I'll be up there soon." Cassandra smiled at him, and Alexander shrugged his shoulders and headed upstairs. Cassandra looked to her father with pained eyes, and he embraced his daughter warmly, "I'm sorry Cassandra, I'm so sorry."
Dustin was starting to get lightheaded, he wasn't used to taking this kind of stuff, and when the sims noticed, they wondered what to do with him.
"Relax Dustin." Ivy sighed, suddenly feeling a little guilty, "Maybe we should get him back home."
The sims groaned, "Why did you bring the loser along anyway?"
Ivy hissed, "Don't talk about him alright...I, care about him."
"Then why did you get him to do weed?" Another sim pushed, "If you really wanted to be with him, you should have just asked him out. Any chance at a real relationship is gone now. I mean come on Ivy, you're hot but you had to get him to do weed just so that you two could make-out."
"Ok just shut up you guys. Someone go call for a taxi." Ivy said, knowing that they were right. He did interest her a lot, and she wanted to go out with him but she just wanted him to think she was cool. Everyone saw him as the bad boy at Sim High, and she wanted him to see that she wasn't a goody two shoes.
Dustin was in and out of it, coughing slightly, and giggling repeatedly, "Man I'm really hungry."
"You have the munchies." She stated in a bored tone, then pulled out some hard candy, "Here."
Dustin sucked at the hard candy and smiled, "Thanks." The taxi came and Ivy helped Dustin up, staying silent the whole time. Even with being high Dustin noticed a difference, "What's up with you?"
"I shouldn't have brought you here, or got you to try weed Dustin. I'm sorry." She said, "That's my thing, not yours."
"Don't be I had fun." He smiled, then pulled her into a hug. She felt the butterflies in her stomach grow as she smiled, "But you don't get it-" She said as they got in the car, "Once the high wares off, you're back to reality, and you're going to hate me more than ever."
"I doubt that. Today was the best day of my life!" He screamed, then felt himself getting light headed again.
"It will ware off in a few minutes anyway, you didn't take that much." He said. They dropped him off at a Pleasantview mall and he made his way home from there on. Ivy was right, the weed wore off as he continued to walk home but he still had a few giggles in him. Regardless he was happy that he got out of the house for one day. But there was something about what Ivy said that stuck with him.
Once the high wares off, you're back to reality, and you're going to hate me more than ever.
As Dustin opened the door, he saw that his mother was home cooking a meal and that Beau was taking care of Ty. His mom turned to him, "Where have you been?!"
She walked closer toward him and sniffed him, "Were you doing weed?!"
Dustin giggled a little at his mothers frown line, "I-I'm sorry mom. It was only a little bit though, it's not like I'm going to do it again."
"That's what they all say Dustin. Go to your room. I can't believe you." Brandi said as tears rolled down her eyes, "I thought you were smarter than this Dustin...you really let me down."
And suddenly reality began to hit Dustin, and he realized that what he was doing was wrong, "Mom! I just wanted a day off, to relax. I was mad about you wanting me to take tutoring. I thought you thought I was stupid and as old as I am I still look for your approval."
"By smoking weed?" She pushed, and Dustin sighed, "It was a big mistake, don't act like you've never made one before because you've made a ton!"
But Brandi ignored him, "I needed you today. I was 'sick' again. And you know who came with me, Darren, Beau, and Ty!" Dustin suddenly felt guilty, but he didn't show it, "Mom I'm sorry...but it's not my job to make sure you're ok."
"Oh please, I gave you the gift of life it's the least you can do." Brandi muttered angrily.
Dustin stayed silent.
"Go to your room. Juste une déception." She muttered under her breath, and those words stuck with Dustin. For his mom to use her first language, French, she had to be pretty mad. But she must have just been stressed out. Still, he felt sad when she said that he was just a disappointment because now he really felt like no one believed in him. He slowly made his way into the room and closed his eyes, then looked up at Will Wright, "Why did you give me this life? Why did you take my dad away? Why are you letting my family live like this? Will Wright, I hate you."
There was a knock on the door but Dustin didn't bother saying anything. The door opened and it was Beau. He gave Dustin a small smile and handed him a plate of food. Dustin put it to the side and got up and looked at his little brother, "Hey Beau, you're really growing up eh?"
Beau smiled, "Dustin, you're not a disappointment. I love you, mom loves you, and Ty loves you too."
"I wish that were true, I know you love me Beau. You're a good brother." He smirked.
Beau leaned in closer, "I think moms just stressed with the new medication the doctors want to try on her."
"New medication?" He questioned curiously, and Beau nodded, "They're offering her 70,000 dollars for it Dustin. But I don't know if she's going to take it because it's never been tested before."
"What's the down side to it?" Dustin asked.
"Well Darren told me that it could make her worse." Beau gulped, and Dustin patted his brother on the back, "I'm sorry I wasn't there bro."
"It's ok. Now eat up. I'll go watch Ty." He said.
Stay tuned for more episodes! Sorry if this one is so short but the next one wil be better and longer I hope. I'm going to focus more on some of the other families. So leave a review please, and tell me, what do you think of Ivy so far?
