Chapter 5.10 – Where did it all go wrong?

Before long Jameson received another promotion, which of course meant another coloured outfit and more “wacky” face paint.  Screenshot-4154To celebrate, the Baileys decided to adopt another pet.  This time they went for a cat, since cats are rather awesome.  They named the little bugger Venus, after the razor brand because of her insanely sharp claws.Screenshot-4144At first Pooka was a bit skeptical of her, until she suggested that they went hunting for birds.Screenshot-4145After that, a simple high-five sealed their friendship for eternity, or at least until one of them died.Screenshot-4146Sadly, one young individual in the family was not keen on Pooka the dog.  That young individual was obviously Cointreau.  Screenshot-4076Everyone knows dogs can smell evil from a mile off, so she was more than aware that Pooka was onto her regarding her plans for world domination.  Screenshot-4077For the time being she knew he could not prove she was up to no good, nor was she making trouble in the neighbourhood, so all she had to do was keep a watchful eye on him and avoid slipping up with her own evil schemes.Screenshot-4080Of course, Cointreau could not help but slip a few white lies to Earl, such as how Pooka had managed to destroy all the spare light bulbs in the house.  Needless to say, he struggled to believe her, considering he soon discovered that her fingerprints were all over the shards of glass.Screenshot-4152That night, to make herself feel better, Cointreau requested that Peach read her a bedtime story, something to do with a pink cat who befriended a blue dog.  The blue dog ended up getting hit by a car, and Peach could not understand how a children’s book could be so morbid.  Turned out, however, that Cointreau had written and published it.Screenshot-4139A few weeks later, it was prom time, therefore Peach and Saffron got their glad-rags out.  Screenshot-4164Unfortunately neither of them had dates, nor did they pull anyone that night, but Saffron was still chuffed that she won the title of Prom Queen.Screenshot-4162That very same night, Earl celebrated his transition into teen-hood. Screenshot-4175A few kids from school were invited along, two of which were unfortunate sufferers of alopecia… Or at least that’s what Mika and Jameson hoped.   Screenshot-4179After Earl blew out his candles, he became a not too bad looking teenager.Screenshot-4192Having developed a keen interest for music during his childhood, Earl was pleasantly surprised that his parents had got him his own drum set.  He proceeded to play “We Will Rock You” – a legal requirement for anyone who plays the drums.Screenshot-4213A few weeks later, Saffron was chucking her guts up in the toilet.Screenshot-4207Of course, Earl happened to walk straight in on her since he had not heard of knocking.Screenshot-4208‘I knew it was only a matter of time before you got pregnant,’ Earl said.Screenshot-4209‘You realise the baby’s head is going to stretch you wide open like this,’ Earl teased, gesturing with his hands to demonstrate the destruction the baby would do to her “lady parts”.

‘Shut it, douche-bag, I’m not pregnant,’ Saffron replied, unimpressed by her brother’s childish assumptions. Screenshot-4210‘I caught Dad napping on the sofa completely naked earlier,’ Saffron explained, a small shudder shooting down her spine as she relived the moment, fortunately with a pixelated blur, which helped her cope with the stress and trauma somewhat.Screenshot-4131‘As you can imagine, it made me feel rather nauseous, especially when he admitted, after he got dressed, that he’d also napped that way on my bed countless times whilst I’d been at school.’ Screenshot-4206Satisfied that his older sister was not pregnant or had some form of eating disorder, Earl shooed her out of the room so he could flush the remains of the bag of cocaine in his pocket down the toilet, whilst Saffron went on her laptop to chat to men she didn’t know on the internets who were several years older than her.Saffron and PedobearThat night, Ricky sat alone on the sofa, wondering where his legacy, and his life, had all gone wrong.  He later concluded it was pretty much since the day he had agreed to marry Alice Bailey.  In hindsight, he would have much rather eloped with one of the youthful male customer’s at the bar he had worked in back at Bridgeport.Screenshot-4140

Chapter 5.3

Chapter 5.3 – Breakdown

As the months continued to run on by, Jameson had become so in demand that he had secured a permanent weekly gig slot at Flying V’s coffee house.  Clearly he was elated by this news.Screenshot-3322He continued to juggle things, particularly really sharp swords, and eventually managed to stop slicing his arms apart with them.Screenshot-3336Everyone loved his acrobatic skills, particularly his family members who did their best to turn up to his shows and support him.  Of course, Coco still refused to show up, but not like he cared. Screenshot-3335Things seemed to be going swimmingly until one evening, when Jameson was about to do a bit of furniture rearranging with the aid of his parents.  As he reached the foot of the bed, his head started to cloud and his vision blurred.Screenshot-3303Then, without so much as murmur escaping from his lips, he collapsed onto the rug.Screenshot-3308A gasp escaped from Judd as he stared down at his son.  He wondered for a few seconds if Jameson had started drinking heavily again, but then came to the conclusion that the poor young guy had just passed out due to exhaustion.   Screenshot-3306Coco reluctantly called for an ambulance, after she had made a pizza delivery order of course, knowing now that she would not have enough time to cook dinner. Screenshot-3307By the following morning, Amaretto had head about the news, and so she instantly cornered Coco and accused her of allowing Jameson to overexert himself.  Screenshot-3316‘Honey,’ Coco replied, ‘Jameson is grown up, like yourself, and so he’s responsible for every action he takes.  I can’t be blamed for his stupidity now, can I?’  Screenshot-3319Amaretto stared at her mother with a deadpan expression.  Clearly Coco was so disillusioned that she was unable to recognize that she was a terrible human being, so Amaretto knew she had to tackle this issue on her own.    Screenshot-3309So, once Jameson was out of hospital and back on his feet, Amaretto settled down with him as they ate dinner to have a little discussion with him regarding his current occupation, and how the strain of it was obviously causing him more harm than good.Screenshot-3356‘So, you know, maybe you should look for an alternative career path, like becoming a business man or something.’ Screenshot-3358Jameson gazed at Amaretto in disbelief.  As if he was going to give up his awesome career for the sake of his health!   He politely explained this to Amaretto, trying his hardest not to smash his empty plate across her pretty face.Screenshot-3359Although sullen, Amaretto refused to give up so easily.  Using the time machine which Tremayne had built many years ago, she traveled forwards in time in hope to discover what would be done to solve the issue in the next chapter so then she could make sure it would definitely happen.Screenshot-3223All she now had to do was put the ball into motion in time for the next chapter to pan out in the same way she had viewed it. Screenshot-3224
