Chapter 6.3 – Never trust a Fireman’s pole
It didn’t take too long for Frangelico to become a local celebrity thanks to her
questionable awesome singing / whistling ability.Using their wealthy expenses, Frangelico and her boyfriend, Jerry Wheeler, bought a lovely three bedroom house on the nice side of town and decided to get married a few months later.After that, it wasn’t long at all before Frangelico became pregnant.Eventually, she ended up having a baby boy, whom Jerry named after his favourite Pokemon character.
As for Saffron, for once her love life actually existed. She had met a strapping young man on a night out with a few of her co-workers. His name was Max Grant and naturally he was the biggest douchebag who worked at the local fire station. He had a reputation of bedding a different girl pretty much every week. He also had two children from two different woman, one of these ladies being his older brother’s wife (true in game story).Completely smitten, Saffron quickly moved in with him and also often stopped by to visit him after she had finished work, despite at first he refused to let her kiss him, his excuse being that it wasn’t a professional thing for him to do in front of his work colleagues.Saffron sensed that this wasn’t normal behaviour, particularly because his co-workers were not in the same room as them half the time she visited.Eventually Saffron had enough. One afternoon, she marched straight up to Max and forced her lips against his, right in front of his best friend, Peter Ferris.Being a bit of a sex maniac, Max went with the flow.‘I want you,’ Max panted, breath hot against her mouth, ‘let’s take this to the sofa.’‘Dude, I’m still in the room!’ Peter exclaimed, although Saffron did not give a flying fuck.This opinion was cemented when she proceeded to pole dance on the fireman’s pole. Then she had sex with Max on the sofa, with Peter still sitting there, too terrified to move.Literally days later, Saffron decided to propose to Max. She thought she had tamed the beast, you see.Being a materialistic arsehole, he accepted her proposal.‘I wonder how much cash I can get from this at the pawn shop?’ Max said, accidentally out loud instead of thinking it.‘What?’ Saffron said, before Max quickly pulled her into a warm embrace.
‘I was joking,’ Max laughed, before adding that she was the love of his life and that he would treat her like a princess forever and ever.Unfortunately he was lying.Their engagement had lasted barely a week. It turned out that he’d also been seeing some girl he’d met at the laundromat who had strange looking breasts.Check them out!To add insult to injury, Saffron’s ex from University, Garry, proudly announced, a few days later, that he was now a father.Fortunately, Saffron decided that suicide was not the answer and put all her focus into her career, swearing to never let another man mess her around again. To cement her new found independence, she moved out from Max’s apartment and bought her own place using her awesome salary.
Naturally, Cointreau and Jeffery, who had moved into the Bailey household a few months ago, had a laugh and joke when they heard about Saffron’s misadventures with love. Jeffery then reminded Cointreau that he was all hot and awesome and would never hurt her like Max had done to Saffron.Cointreau was pleased with this. She also hoped that since all her siblings had now moved out and stuff that she would be mentioned more in the next few chapters, what with being the founder of this generation and all.
