Chapter 7.1

Chapter 7.1 Out with the old

Whilst Twix and Hershey were still at University, Cointreau decided it was time to retire.  She was loaded enough as it was, so she saw no real logic to keep working up until the day she died.Screenshot-8041Aero also proposed to Adrianne.      Screenshot-8000They moved into a pleasant two bedroom house across the other side of town.  Basically, far away enough so they knew that the family would not bother to visit until they had children.Screenshot-8055Oh, and at some point Yorkie got taken away by the RSPCA.  Mainly because Jeffrey kept using him as a foot towel.Screenshot-7926Twix seemed to be the only one who cared about this.  Even Cointreau, who had doted on Yorkie in the past, wondered why the food in the dog bowl was still full to the brim a month later.Screenshot-8562As most families do, they adopted a new pet to replace the previous one.  His name was Snowy and he was pretty much on his last legs, so the family made sure not to grow too attached to him.Screenshot-8097For some strange reason, Snowy loved to dig holes.  Very big human body sized holes.Screenshot-8102This worked well for Twix and his garden, although he was a little bit concerned about the corpses ruining his crops.Screenshot-8099Samuel McNeil, Bounty’s fancy man, moved in with the Baileys at some stage.Screenshot-8575Upon discovering how crazy her family way, he quickly proposed to her so they could move out together.Screenshot-8579They moved into this swanky little house very close to the city since they loved the night life.Screenshot-8613And so, the only child who had not flown the nest yet was Hershey, which Twix did not mind since he thought his little brother was pretty awesome.  However, with the departure of his two older siblings, he noticed his father exhibiting some rather strange behaviour. Screenshot-8568Some very odd behaviour indeed…Screenshot-8566…And no conveniently placed plate could hide this fact.    Screenshot-8567Twix sobbed when he realised, being heir and all, he would not be able to move out to escape this kind of trauma.  At least, for the time being.Screenshot-8564

Bounty’s Hunt (Part 2)

Life continued on as normal at University.  I even started to dabble in cooking, although this was usually only after consuming a few drinks, but was still the only one sober enough to use the BBQ without harming anyone, or myself.Screenshot-7889Things with Nathaniel hadn’t turned out as anticipated, mainly because he turned out to be a bit of a creeper who invented any excuse to see me in my (rather awesome feathered) bikini.Screenshot-7893Still, we often spent our time together with a couple of other friends, listening to tunes and gossiping in the hot tub.  Of course the topic of sex or nudity would often crop up, usually in relation to my pretty bad tendency to strip off when drunk.  Screenshot-7892One night, Nathaniel commented that I wouldn’t have the guts to go skinny dipping.   In hindsight I guess it was his ploy to see me naked, but I couldn’t say no to a challenge.Screenshot-7891As I whipped my bikini off, the look on his face was priceless, like he’d never seen a naked girl before.  Of course, he wasn’t man enough to strip off himself, in fact, he and the others ran back to the dorm with my bikini and towel cradled in their arms, laughing like hyenas.Screenshot-7890I didn’t give a damn, however.  The tub was so warm and cozy, and I was still a little bit tipsy.  Staying there all night wouldn’t have been an issue.Screenshot-7852‘Bounty!’ A familiar voice greeted.  Peering up, a mix of disappointment and anger flowed through my veins when I saw Samuel’s smug face staring down at me.Screenshot-7855‘Get the fuck out of here,’ I sighed, closing my eyes once more.Screenshot-7859Hearing his shoes scuffing against the grass, I assumed he had turned to leave like I’d suggested.  That was why I immediately opened my eyes when I heard the sound of flies unzipping, and almost drowned right there and then when it dawned on me he was taking off his clothes.  Once fully nude, he crouched down and clambered into the water.Screenshot-7857During all this, I openly checked out his body, muscular and toned, as expected for a police officer really.  Then I reminded myself that he was an arsehole, and a slimy one at that.Screenshot-7860‘Listen, I’m sorry for being a dick.  I didn’t know you that well back then… actually, I didn’t know myself.’   Screenshot-7862‘Please, stop with the bullshit already,’ I sighed, standing up and ushering him along a seat so I could sit back down beside him.  I didn’t care that I had given him an eyeful, he’d seen it all before. ‘I’m not going to be your rebound just because your girlfriend’s dumped you or whatever.’Screenshot-7864‘How many apologies is it going to take?’ Samuel asked.

Now thinking about it, this had to be at least his fifth attempt of making amends.  Fifteenth perhaps if all the Facebook messages were applicable.  He didn’t seem like too much of a bad guy.  Maybe I was being a bit harsh…Screenshot-7865‘What will it take?’ He eventually asked.

‘Would you run to the bathroom naked to grab me a towel?’ I proposed, curious to see how far he would go to win back my trust.

‘Of course, even if I had to satisfy a pack of jocks to get to it,’ Samuel revealed, carrying out an accompanying gesture.Screenshot-7878‘I think I may be starting to forgive you a bit,’ I confessed, sliding my arm across his shoulder.  ‘But only just a bit.’Screenshot-7868Now, please, don’t judge me.  I’d now seen what Samuel was “packing” underneath his uniform, plus he had the guts to do what Nathaniel was afraid of.  I figured he would leave once he got what he wanted, but, to my surprise, it didn’t turn out that way.Screenshot-7869Several months later, I graduated, not with first class honors, but a with a well-earned upper second class degree.Screenshot-7901Samuel was still by my side.Screenshot-7907He promised to make arrangements to come live with me in Setra, although I would have to wait until my brother and Adrianne moved out as there was a distinct lack of space in our household.Screenshot-7910I wasn’t worried about him hurting me again.  He’d heard about my family, our history, so I think he realised he’d be a bit of a moron to ever do anything to upset them.Screenshot-7909  

Bounty’s Hunt (Part 1)

Bounty’s Hunt (Part 1)

When it came to writing love letters, I must admit it wasn’t easy.  I was used to writing about the zombie apocalypse, crime noir, that kind of thing.Screenshot-7652Samuel McNeil was my current love interest.  A good-looking late twenty year old something who happened to be in the police force.  How I’d met him, I’d rather not divulge, but it basically involved me being a tad drunk, running across campus completely naked.Screenshot-7672My eldest brother, Aero, detested the idea of me dating an older guy, and a policeman at that.Screenshot-7654I figured, what was the harm in trying?  Samuel had pretty much seen all I had to offer, so I had nothing to be shy about.Screenshot-7655My confidence was the one thing I had pride in.  I knew I hadn’t been blessed with the greatest of looks (or at least my mum had managed to convince me of this), but my dad had often reassured me that beauty was skin deep.  That was why I enjoyed preaching across the airways about how discrimination was wrong, in any shape or form.Screenshot-7554Sometimes, the responses I received from some students were cruel.Screenshot-7555‘Fuck you!’ Were usually my words of choice in such circumstances.Screenshot-7556Since starting at University, I realised that I hadn’t really done my reputation many favours, particularly since Aero’s masquerade party.  To be fair, I was finding the party to be dull, with a distinct lack of decent men.Screenshot-7577That was until Cody Eisenberg showed up.Screenshot-7578I tried to play it cool, but he was so warm and friendly, I couldn’t resist flirting with him.Screenshot-7584Unfortunately, I was still new to the whole romancing thing.  In all fairness, I can’t quite remember where I’d found the bouquet of flowers, but I’m sure it was linked to the reason behind one of my roommates splitting up with his girlfriend for “forgetting” their anniversary.Screenshot-7589As expected, my attempt to win him over did not go down too well.Screenshot-7586His reaction was one of horror and utter repulsion, much to the amusement of the other guests.Screenshot-7590Screenshot-7591The result of this night is what led to me drinking more than I usually would, and stripping off my clothes, somehow ending up running across the University quad, where fortunately Samuel came to my rescue upon passing by in his patrol car.Screenshot-7671As anticipated, my love letter to Samuel went unanswered, and soon enough my heart felt as frozen as the snow outside.Screenshot-7720As a last ditch attempt, I confided into a close friend of mine, Nathaniel Wright.  We’d met at the student gym a while back where I’d discovered he was studying a degree in physical education.  Samuel was also his cousin’s best friend, so I figured he could help set us up.Screenshot-7705‘Anything for you sweetheart, but you don’t forget that you’ll owe me!’Screenshot-7709Whether he was implying sexual favours or not didn’t matter.  I thanked him for his assistance, all the while aware that he had quite nice eyes.Screenshot-7707Screenshot-7708That coming weekend, I had my first date with Samuel.  The classic dinner and cinema option.  Afterwards, he drove me back to my halls.  Out of politeness, I invited him in for a coffee.Screenshot-7757I didn’t want to go overboard on the flirting, not on our first date, so, I lent into him and confessed that I had really enjoyed our evening together.  Screenshot-7763‘I hope we can meet up again soon,’ I added, my heart was racing as I moved back, still resting a hand on his hip as I tried to gauge his reaction.Screenshot-7767It was something I didn’t have to worry about for too long.

‘Really?  Are you serious?’Screenshot-7769‘What?’Screenshot-7770‘I thought you’d be up for it, that’s why I agreed to go out with you tonight.’

My heart stood still before a frown fell across my face.

‘What are you talking about?’

‘Don’t play Miss Innocent,’ he sneered. ‘You’ve made it plenty clear that you want me, from the moment you thrust your naked body against me when you pissed out of your skull.  Christ, do you know how much willpower it took for me not to take advantage that night?’

Seriously, was this guy for real?  Trust me to pick the rotten apple from the tree.

 Screenshot-7768‘Wow, I guess I should be grateful you decided not to rape me, Mr Officer.’ 

Samuel’s face faltered, and for a moment he broke eye contact with me.  I guess the guilt had finally hit him.Screenshot-7773‘Look, I’m sorry, can we start over?’

Straightening my back, I held my head up high before delivering my final words to Samuel.

‘Forget it, you’ve blown your chance, get out.’Screenshot-7762Nathaniel was my shoulder to cry on, and I wished from the very start I had set eyes on him rather than that slimy arsehole of a cop.Screenshot-7735Whether Nathaniel would accept me in that way, I could only hope.Screenshot-7688
