Round 6 - Fall 2037
No sir, well I don't want to be the blame
Not anymore, it's your turn
So take a seat we're settling the final score
And why do we like to hurt so much
I can't decide, you have made it harder just to go on
And why, all the possiblities
Where I was wrong
"You realize that today is going to suck right?" Tabitha asked Terrence over breakfast.
"Why? Because my evil ex-wife and your amnesia having sister are both coming for a visit? Nah! It'll be a ball," he said sarcastically.
"I have no idea why Allison has chosen to show up here now. Kenny is 23 years old! She hasn't called him even once since we split!" Terrence said.
"I don't know why she's here, but I'm not putting up with any nonsense from her. I don't trust her," Tabitha said.
"Neither do I! Why should I? She left me because I couldn't provide her with diamonds and furs on a regular basis!"
"What about Tessa? First she runs off and marries a man she later finds out is an elf. A freaking elf! Then said elf turns out to have this messed up past with another crazy elf. So crazy elf number two knocks up Tessa and erases her memory. I mean come on, Tab. Who but your sister would get involved in such craziness?" Terrence asked.
"I know, I know. Tessa's never done anything in half measures, that's for sure! I really have no idea what to do. She doesn't remember anything. Not me, not our parents, not Elvin. Hell she doesn't even remember her own daughter! And I'm afraid to even think about this kid she's carrying!" Tabitha said.
"We're going to get through this crazy day and then me and you are going to go back to our peaceful lives. No one is going to ruin what we have built, Tabitha. Not my evil ex-wife or your crazy sister," Terrence said.
Tabitha didn't remember much about Allison Tavem, but she did know that she was a beautiful gold digger that had almost ruined Terrence. He tried so hard to keep up with the lifestyle that she wanted that he got himself into a lot of debt. Well Tabitha wasn't going to let Allison ruin what she had. She would allow her to say what she had to say and then she would be banished back to the far corner of their lives where she had been all this time........
"Well look at you! You're still handsome Terrence," Allison said.
"And you look the same as well Allison. What is it that brings you to LaQuest Beach? I would have thought you would be on an island somewhere spending some man's money," Terrence said.
"Still bitter are we? Aren't you even going to invite me in for a seat?" she asked.
"Pardon me, how rude of me. Please come in," he said.
"What do you want Allison?"
"Right to the point, eh Terrence? Don't you want to catch up first? Maybe fill me in on what's been going on with my son?" Allison asked.
"Your son? Since when did you give a damn about Kenny?"
"Terrence! I love Kenny! I just wasn't in a position to care for him. I had no idea where I was going to go when we split. You had a job and the means to care for him," she said.
"You know exactly where you were going. With that bastard you left me for! Did you think I was stupid? I know you ran off with your little rich man. My question is where is he now?" he asked.
"I suppose you are referring to Jean Paul. Turns out he was married the whole time. He had nothing to do with us splitting though. I was tired of all the fighting," she said.
"Yea, sure you were."
Tabitha finally mustered up the courage to join the conversation.
"Tabitha, this is my ex-wife, Allison Tavem. Allison, this is the love of my life Tabitha Coners."
"Nice to meet you," Allison said.
"Likewise. So what have I missed? What brings you by today Allison?" Tabitha asked.
"Obviously you two don't want me here! How many times will I be asked that? I will get to my purpose for coming, no need to harrass me about it!" Allison exclaimed.
"That's a bit dramatic isn't it? Of course we want to know why you're here when you have been MIA for over 10 years. And if you want to remain in our home and have the opportunity to tell us what you want, I suggest you take it down a notch," Tabitha said.
"Fine. I'm looking to have a house built and I want Terrence to handle the job."
"Are you kidding me? This is a joke right?" Terrence said laughing.
"What's so funny about me wanting a home built by the best?" Allison asked.
"I don't know if I even have the time to list all the reasons that this is not going to happen. There are plenty of other architects you can use to have your little house built. You most definitely will not be using my husband!" Tabitha said.
"I wasn't aware you were also his mother. Shouldn't he have a say? He will of course be the one doing the work."
"Is she serious?" Terrence asked.
"I think she is, honey," Tabitha said.
"I don't see what the big deal is! I just thought I would come and ask, I had no idea it would be seen as such a crime! All I want is my home built," Allison said.
"Thank you for the offer, but I'm afraid I'm going to have to decline. I have quite a few jobs I am doing for the city and really don't have the time," Terrence said.
"There was a time when you had all the time in the world for me," Allison said.
"Well that time has passed," Tabitha said.
"Well now that we have that out of the way, I'm afraid I'm going to have to ask you to leave. My sister is coming over and our daughters will be home soon," Tabitha said.
"Well. Sorry that you couldn't accept my offer. I'm sure we'll be seeing more of each other as I plan to stay here in Camden Park," Allison said.
"I wouldn't count on it."
"That wasn't so bad right?" Terrence asked once Allison left.
"Yes it was, but that's ok. I don't want her around here again!"
"Calm down, she won't be. You need to get ready for Tessa. This should be interesting."
"Interesting doesn't cover it. You know we have to tell Kenny she's here. If he runs into her......"
"We'll talk to him. He's not going to take this very well......." Terrence said.
It wasn't long before Tessa was knocking at the door.
"Tess.......how are you?" Tabitha asked.
"I'm doing ok I guess. You're my sister right?"
"Yes, I'm your sister. You really don't remember anything at all?"
"Nothing. Just know I have a husband who says he's an elf and some other evil elf kidnapped me and knocked me up. I also have a daughter apparently," Tessa said.
"I'm not sure how I'm suppose to feel......everything is so strange to me. Elvin has been trying to fill me in, but for some reason I don't trust him," Tessa said.
"And you shouldn't! Elvin put a spell on you to get you to marry him, did he tell you that?"
"Yes, he told me. This entire thing is just too hard to believe! I'm married to an elf? I mean really!"
"I know, I'm sorry. But Tess, these crazy things always happen to you. You always jump head first into things without thinking. This isn't the first time you've gotten into trouble. It's practically your middle name!" Tabitha said.
"Elvin wants me to get rid of the baby," Tessa said.
"How do you feel about that?"
"I don't know.......on the one hand, if everything he is saying is true, then this Gurth guy is going to come take him or her away once they are born. On the other hand, how can I kill an innocent child? Me and kiddo are innocent victims in all this. I've thought about just taking Vanya and running off somewhere," Tessa said.
"I don't know about that........I'm pretty sure they could find you. But you and Vanya are welcome to come stay with us if you want," Tabitha said.
"Thanks, I'll keep that in mind. Our bathroom is full of make up and our closet is full of my clothes. I must have been a lot of fun huh?" Tessa asked.
"Oh yea, you were fun alright. You had too much fun which is how you got here. I wonder if you're going to still be the same as you were. Elvin says you'll never get your memories back. All you can do now is make new ones," Tabitha said.
"Yea I know. I don't know if I want to be this screw up person I was before. This could be my chance to change it all around," Tessa said.
"It's all up to you hun. I just hope things don't go bad with this baby and this crazy Gurth guy," Tabitha said.
"You take care of yourself, you here me? This is a chance for you to start over. We've been through alot Tess, you're my sister and I love you. You need anything and you call me, ok? If you want to leave that jerk, bring Vanya and we'll get Kenny's old room ready for you guys," Tabitha said.
"Thank you so much Tabitha. I'm glad I have you."
Tabitha had one more fire to put out.
"What the hell is Allison doing in Camden Park?" Kenny asked.
"Language! I don't know. She said she wants your dad to build her a house, but I don't think that's the real reason she's here," Tabitha said.
"Of course it's not! She heard dad is doing ok and now she wants to walk back in here and spend his money! She's poison, Tabitha!"
"Baby, I know. Your father knows better. He knows how your mother is. It's going to be fine," Tabitha said.
"How do you know?"
"I love your dad. He has been the greatest thing to happen to me. And you are my son Kenny, even if I didn't give birth to you. We are a family, and it's going to take a hell of a lot more than Allison Tavem to break us up," Tabitha said.
"I love you Tabitha," Kenny said.
It was the first time he had ever said that to her. It was at that moment that she knew they really would be ok........
* Lots of drama right? Allison isn't playable, but she will be around indefinitely :). I think it went pretty well considering lol.
* Tessa, Tessa, Tessa! I don't know if she'll be the same as she was before she lost her memory. If her wants panel is any indication, she will be! She is already wanting to woohoo and make out with no specific person. Her romance side is overcoming her family side at the moment. She will of course have the baby, but I'm not sure if she will stay with Elvin or not......time will tell
