2:4 In It For Life

After a couple of hours in her room, Mercedes invited her best friend Morgana over. She'd been the one who'd told her about Chris and Samantha, her room mate. She was also studing medicine and so they saw each other every day on placement at the hospital.

Mercedes told her friend about how she'd been sick all morning, and had had to keep running from her room to the bathroom. Morgana agreed they needed to talk and the two went inside. Mercedes politely asked Jackson to go out for the rest of the day so she could have a 'girly day' with her friend. He agreed and rushed off to Lisas' house.

Lisa seemed very pleased to see Jackson, and whispered to him that her parents had gone out and taken her little sister too, leaving just her two older brothers inside. They were busy playing computer games as she pulled him inside, sneaking past the boys quietly and up the stairs.

She led him up two flights of stairs to the attic, where there was a double bed, a dresser and small ensuite bathroom. The guest bedroom, nobody came up here.

It wasn't long before she charmed him into the bed and they spent hours enjoying each others company before she announced that her parents would be back soon. He pulled his clothes back on, gave her a peck on the cheek and sneaked his way back out the house.

When he got home, Morgana was dancing around and Mercedes was just finishing dinner. Jackson was surprised to see Mercedes in baggy clothes.
"I may as well tell you now, Jack." She sighed "I'm pregnant. I'm not sure what this means for my degree, or our living situation, but there's no point hiding it from you." Jackson was shocked. He wasn't sure whether to feel happy for her, or sorry for her that she was now stuck with a part of him for life. Mercedes read his expression. "Don't worry about me." She smiled. "Me and Morgana have already talked most of the stuff through today. And I don't expect you to know what to say or how to feel, but you need to know because there will be a lot of changes."
"And I'll be here to help you, Mercy. You've been a friend to me since I moved here, and made me feel welcome from the start. I'll help you even if you have to move out." Mercedes started to well up.
"That's so sweet, Jack. Lisa is so lucky to have you." She sighed, wiping a tear away from her cheek "Oh, if you were a few years older she'd have to worry." she joked, attempting a smile.

Jackson spent a good hour in the bath just thinking. Mercedes was really in it deep now. He wondered what her university would do about her degree and her living situation. These student houses aren't geared up for children, and there was no way she had enough money to afford her own place. And him. He graduated in a few days and things were moving pretty fast with Lisa now. He felt like he'd made a commitment today. He was glad she'd made the first move, he'd wanted to for a while now, but hadn't wanted to push her.

He could hear Mercedes go to her bedroom and slam the door.
"Come on Chris, pick up!" After a couple of tries she realised he wasn't going to speak to her.
She texted him instead and hoped he'd read it before he deleted it. He needed to know, even if she didn't ever want to see him again.

Yes, that was Jackson doing the stride of pride as he got home... Not sure how well you can see his face, but he's grinning like an idiot haha!

  1. Oh wow. The living situation here has gotten very interesting! I'm looking forward to seeing how they cope with their rather complex situation!

  2. Ah, the Strut of Glory. Interesting twist to the story!

    1. Haha, it is the most annoying thing in the sim-world!!

      Well... Not quite, but it is annoying.

  3. Ah, poor Mercy, that's a tough situation for her.
    Hopefully Jacksom was more careful and isn't going to be in a similar situation anytime soon.

  4. The stride of pride always cracks me up.

    Ugh. Why did it have to be Chris? If Jack were a few years older?!?!?! Was that really just joking?

  5. Poor Mercedes, pregnant with that jerk's child! (I always find a nice wife for Chris when I play him. LOL) I wonder how he will react when he finds out that she's pregnant.

    Jack is already thinking of a future with Lisa. Definitely not like Chris.
