A new girl steps in - Does Julie have a rival now?
Before I even start the story, let me say this - I PLAN TO RE-UPLOAD SCHOOL DAYS 1. I've been receiving constant PM's about it (I know, I asked you guys to,) but I'm never around enough to re-direct any of you. I'll get it re-uploaded as soon as I can, if the site allows. If not, I'll figure something out.
I think you'll like this chapter - NEW CHARACTER!
Also, I stopped with chapter numbers - I prefer giving them crappy little titles now.
“You may now kiss the bride …”
No, Julie and I didn’t get married – Thank God. Don’t worry; I would’ve thought the same thing. This may come as somewhat of a surprise, but our Mom just re-married. Allow me to explain:
It was about three months ago. Mom had been trying dating sites to find someone since Dad passed on years before. I suppose I should’ve mentioned that in the beginning, but it seemed somewhat … Irrelevant. But I’m rambling – Eventually, she found someone that was only about a mile away, and the two quickly hit it off. Julie and I both approved – The guy was great. He was nice to us, and more importantly – Mom was happy.
That and they were out a lot, leaving Julie and I alone to … Well, you know.
Anyway, after a long while, he seemed to be over here at least three times a week, if not more. He never mentioned his family to Mom, or ever offered to introduce them, which is one reason no one expected what came up next – He proposed to her after just a few months. If this all seems rushed, don’t worry – I felt the same way. It seems like this just popped up out of nowhere, but it’s not like Julie and I didn’t see it coming.
Anyway, the wedding went without a hitch, although something bothered me – A girl, maybe a bit older than Julie and I, seemed to be all over the place. She was a bit taller than us, had long blonde hair, and … Well, let’s just say she made Julie seem flat as a board in that area. Most of the day was nothing but Julie shoving her elbow into my side every time I looked at this girl.
If that sounds weird, imagine our surprise when the day after he showed up at the door with someone behind him- That same blonde from the wedding.
“Richard, you have got to be kidding.” Julie said as the girl walked past him and looked around the kitchen. I’m betting that Richard knew from the look on her face that Julie was obviously unhappy, but I don’t think he really cared – Not like he could do anything, anyway.
“This is Rebecca, my daughter. I’m sorry I didn’t tell you guys, but your Mom said you’d be fine with it since you two spend so much time together and have no one else to hang with.” He said. I looked over at Julie, who was glaring at the girl as she continued walking around the house. She returned as soon as she heard her name, looking at me with a smirk.
“You can call me Becky if ya want.” She said, winking at me. I nodded, knowing that if I didn’t want Julie to rip my head off later, I need to be silent. Julie, unfortunately, wasn’t so polite.
“I can think of twenty more things to call ya, you little bit-” I slapped my hand over Julie’s mouth, muffling her last word. She grabbed my wrist, pulling it off of her mouth and dragging me down the hall into my room, slamming the door behind us. Julie pushed me to my bed, crossing her arms and leaning against the wall. “It’s times like this when I’d seriously consider taking up smoking …” She sighed.
“If you have a brain in your head, you’ll never think that again.” I said. I was very much against smoking, drinking, that whole bit, and Julie promised to never start. She nodded, sighing once more. “Well, we have a new step sister … Exciting, huh?” I said, trying to cheer her up – Why in the world I chose this topic is beyond me.
“Exciting? You call some blonde bimbo hitting on MY boy ‘exciting?’” She glared at the door as if considering walking out and finding her. “She lays one hand on you, and I swear I’ll end her.” I had never seen Julie get this defensive or jealous around me (or call me her “boy.” That was kinda cute.)
“Well, look. There’s nothing we can do now, and we just met her – We know nothing about her yet. Just give her a chance, would ya?” Julie didn’t reply, instead she just opened the door and left. I sat up and slowly followed, the two of us walking into the living room to find Rebecca sitting on the couch. She looked over as we came in, frowning at the sight of Julie but smiling as I appeared behind her.
“Hey there, Jeremy … And hey, um … Jamie, right?” She said, looking back to the TV. Don’t ask me how the relationship started with instant hate – I guess it’s just how some people are. I sat down next to her, hoping that I didn’t have to hold Julie back from ripping her hair out.
“It’s Julia to you.” Julie said sitting down next to me. I just hoped she didn’t act too defensive – It would be bad if Rebecca found out what we did. “Where are Mom and Richard?”
“Oh, they went out for a honeymoon dinner. Something about how we’re too poor combined to afford a vacation.” Rebecca said, not looking away from the TV. “So what the hell do two do for fun around here, anyway? It’s kind of a small neighborhood.”
“Well, in your case, I’d suggest jumping off a bridge.” Julie replied. Is this gonna be our life from now on - Just a constant barrage of insults? I’m not putting up with this crap right now. I stood up, not speaking to either of them as I left the room, only to hear a “Good job, you chased him off!” come from Rebecca.
Okay, so this was getting odd – Incest between Julie and I was hard enough to get used to. Rebecca just moves in as my STEP sister and starts hitting on me? Do these two not know the definition of the word “sibling?” As long as I didn’t give in, or look at her, or breathe in her direction, I should be fine. The only issue I could find that even remotely involved me was – How in the world will Julie and I ever be able to have sex here again? With two more people in the house, it’s going to be practically impossible.
“Hey Jeremy, get back here!” Rebecca yelled just as I opened my bedroom door. I sighed, wondering if I should really go back in there or not. If Julie gets too angry, she might just scream out what we do in some weird way to make Rebecca back off. I guess I don’t have much of a choice now … Why did I leave in the first place, again? I turned back around and headed into the living room.
“He’s not mad at me, Jeremy loves me.” Julie said, grabbing my wrist and pulling me to her lap. “Blood’s thicker than … Whatever the fuck you are.” She said, glaring at Rebecca. “I can’t do anything about you living here, but you keep your goddamn hands off him.”
“Why are you so fucking defensive about your fucking brother? It’s not like he’s your boyfriend!” Rebecca said. I froze, silently praying that Julie would keep her mouth shut. Please, for the love of God, don’t let her spill it …
“I just don’t want you poisoning his mind!” Julie shouted back. What exactly would she poison my mind with? It sounded like Julie was running out of comebacks. Just quit while you have some dignity left, sheesh …
“I’m not listening to you bitch about stupid shit.” Rebecca said, standing up. “I’m out of here.” Julie pushed me to the floor, standing up and following her.
“And just where the fuck are you going?” I heard Julie say as the two left and headed outside. This is gonna be a long fucking … Well, probably month.
A few days later, I was sitting on the couch all by myself. Richard and Mom had decided that Julie and Rebecca needed some “sisterly bonding time” and took them out to the mall. I can only imagine what will happen … And wouldn’t ya know it, I was right.
“I can’t believe you, Julia! I have never been so embarrassed in my life!”
Mom yelled as she walked inside, slamming the door behind her. Julie, Rebecca and Richard soon followed. I turned around to greet them, and the sight almost made me fall over with laughter: Julie had given Rebecca a black eye. Do I bother asking …? Yeah, I probably should.
“What happened?” I asked, standing up and heading into the kitchen, helping Richard with two huge bags from some clothing store. He sighed, shaking his head.
“You don’t wanna know, pal. You seriously don’t wanna-” He started, but was cut off by Rebecca standing between us and screaming.
“That little bitch popped me in the face!” Rebecca said angrily, Richard now holding her back from strangling Julie, who simply smirked. “All I did was pick out some clothes, and she hits me!”
“You were picking out a thong to wear in front of Jeremy, and he’s my boy- er… Brother! I don’t want his eyes burning from their sockets from your ugly ass!” Julie said, crossing her arms. Okay, she almost made a huge mistake right in front of our parents. You’re slipping, Julie - Dangerously slipping; If she hadn’t corrected herself …
“Now that’s nonsense, why would she pick out something to wear in front of her new brother? That’s just sick!” Mom said. “I don’t give a damn what you two are really fighting about, go to your rooms!” I should probably mention that Rebecca had moved into the guest bedroom … Right next to mine. The two walked past me, Julie grabbing my arm and pulling me along. I didn’t resist; she’d just pull harder. For some reason, Mom didn’t stop her.
Up in Julie’s room, she slammed the door and locked it tight, putting a stack of thick books and a chair to block it – Why she would do that when the door is locked is beyond me. I sat on her bed, watching her walk back and forth, obviously pissed off. I didn’t know people actually walked in circles to think.
“That little fucking tramp …” Julie muttered. “I swear to God, if I get five minutes alone I will fucking cut her.” Julie had never, ever acted like this in all the time that I’ve known her. This was way too out of character for her.
“What the hell happened?” I asked. “Why did you really punch her?” I was going to let her answer, but something else popped into my head. “Do you know how dangerous you sounded back there? You almost fucked everything up! And why the fuck would she want to buy a thong to wear around me? She isn’t into step-cest, is she?”
“You called it, brother.” Julie stopped, turning to me. “I didn’t believe it either – Sounds too clich?right?” I didn’t know what was clich?bout it, but I wasn’t going to interrupt her. “I didn’t mean to almost fess up, so I am sorry about that, but here’s what really happened.”
Apparently, while wandering around the mall, Mom and Richard had left the girls to do whatever they wanted. Julie, of course, headed into the bookstore – Or started to. Out of curiosity (or more out of just being nosy,) she watched as Rebecca headed into a lingerie store. Julie didn’t know why she would need to go in there, but she followed anyway.
“What the hell do you want?” Rebecca asked when Julie found her. “Can’t you see I’m busy?”
“Why are you in here? You have a boyfriend or somethin’?” Julie asked. Rebecca smirked, shaking her head.
“Not yet, but after this, I will. I suggest you stay out of Jeremy’s room for a few nights, if you catch my drift.” She said. Julie clenched her fist, but held back – Maybe she somehow misunderstood.
“Why would I need to do that? You’re not into your own stepbrother that way, are you?” Julie asked, expecting a ‘what the fuck is wrong with you?’ meaning the two of us were fine. “Besides, I seriously doubt Jeremy would approve.”
“Didn’t you see the way he looked at me during the wedding?” Rebecca started. “Yeah, I’m getting him. Stepbrother or not, he’s fucking mine. So you can be defensive about protecting your innocent brother all you want, I’m gonna fuck him crazy-” And that’s when Julie punched her.
It took a lot in me to not crack up right there, but Julie didn’t think the story was too funny. She sat next to me, staying quiet. I sighed, hugging her and holding her close – I expected her to push me away from being so angry, but she didn’t – Instead, she turned my head and forced me into a kiss – With tongue. Now, you’d think if I had a brain, I’d pull away since Rebecca was only about 6 steps away, but I couldn’t. I guess I wanted it too bad.
“You know this is probably a bad idea,” I said as the kiss broke.
“I locked the door, stupid.” Julie said, pulling me back into the kiss and pushing me to my back. “There’s no possible way she can get in here from the outside. You’re all mine.” I smiled to myself, beginning to enjoy this even more – I admit, if I had to pick between the two, I wouldn’t hesitate in getting Julie. We continued kissing, mostly small pecks on the lips.
“So … Do you wanna …” I mumbled. Julie licked her lips, winking at me.
“When do I not?” She said, smiling. Yeah, I’d call this total bullshit too – A hot girl who was constantly horny? Doesn’t seem possible in the real world - But here she is. “So let’s go …”
We both froze. We’re fucked now – Mom must’ve heard us talking, or Richard overheard …Well, it was fun while it lasted, right? We both slowly turned, seeing Rebecca leaning against the doorway, a smile on her face.
“I fucking knew it. I didn’t know how to prove it, but I fucking knew it.” She said, her smirk not leaving. I looked up at Julie, who showed no fear at all – She got off of me, sitting up and glaring at her.
“How the hell did you get in here?” She asked, looking at Rebecca. Rebecca held up a credit card. “You mean that shit actually works?” Julie asked. “I’ll be damned.” I saw the stack of books had been kicked across the floor – How did we not hear any of this? Were we too busy with each other to hear the door opening? “So what are you gonna do? Go run your fucking trap to Mom?”
“Nah - That would be too boring.” Rebecca answered. “I’ll think up somethin’, I just know it. You two lil’ pervs have fun, okay?” And with that, she walked out and closed the door behind her. I looked at Julie, and she looked at me – We were speechless. We’re at the mercy of someone who hates Julie and wants to molest me.
This won’t end well.
So yeah, someone knows who could actually be a threat.
A past review said that people would NOTICE the two of them acting so close, and you're right - I completely forgot that telling Julie's ex-boyfriend should've set off a chain reaction anyway, AND I remember saying that in one of their classes, a rumor about the two was spread around. This was all in School Days 1 I think, which is probably why some of you don't remember it.
Like I said, I'm hoping I can re-upload the chapter. I'll try to do so as soon as possible.
