Eighty-One…

Eighty-One: Jakub’s Ladder

Contains very offensive dialogue.

Kat and Lauren were in the midst of a conversation. Not one regarding the dangerous situation they were mired in, but one regarding Hunter Logan.

“You guys will probably be able to work through it,” Lauren said.

“Maybe. But with the way he’s acting, I don’t know if I even want to go home to him… even if we weren’t stuck in here.”

“I know you crushed on him for a long time, but you never should’ve let him sweet talk you into his bed.”

That statement irked Kat.

“I’d never let a guy do that to me. I’d never throw caution to the wind and live out my fantasies. That’s why you’re in the situation you are: stuck with two babies, and an asshole for a fiance.”

The far door squealed open, startling the women.

Gavin.

“What do you want with us?”

“I’m not sure yet.”

“But I’m sure I’ll figure it out,” he enthused.

Kat stared at him.

He took out a cigarette and lit it.

“What are you doing?”

“What’s it look like?” He exhaled a puff of smoke; even though Dempires didn’t breathe.

Kat didn’t quite understand that, though there were far more imperative matters to worry about.

“Hmm. What should I do with you girls?”

“Set us free?”

Gavin chuckled, took another hit of his cig.

“Daddy’s Princess is good at telling jokes,” he said. “Just like your brother when he promised to free me from that spell.” His golden eyes pierced hers. “Instead, he left me like that for hours and hours. I couldn’t move or do anything. You have any idea how that feels?”

He crouched down and continued staring at them. Gavin placed the cigarette between his lips, narrowing his demonic eyes.

Suddenly he jumped up. The girls jumped as well.

“I’ve got it.” He went over and unlocked the door.

“Come here,” he said.

Kat’s heart pounded.

“What’s he gonna do to us?” Lauren hissed.

Kat couldn’t speak. She was too afraid.Β 

Once they walked up to Gavin, he flicked away his cigarette and ordered them to turn around.

Oh, God. This is it. I’m going to die. Right here, right now, with my BFF.

This is the price I pay for having a father who was leader of Undead City.

“Put your pretty princess hands together, behind you, Daddy’s Princess. I need to tie your pretty wrists together.”

A cold, eerie sensation crept through her. It was another wave of terror.

After tying up both girls, he stood back and snickered.

“Now I can do with you whatever I want,” he said.

Another chilly wave passed through Kat. She stifled a shiver.

“What about you, Princess?”

“Does Daddy’s girl need a prince to play with?” His hands glided down the sides of her boobs.

“Go fuck yourself!” Needless to say, Kat immediately regretted saying that.

“How ’bout I fuck you instead? Along with your cute friend?”

Lauren whimpered.

Behind them, the door flung open.

“Who are you?” Gavin asked.

The stranger didn’t answer. He only smirked.

“I said, who are you? What do you want?” Gavin repeated.

Gavin’s inquiry was answered by a fist.

He almost knocked Kat over as he fell. She stumbled forward, wondering what the hell was going on.

She peered behind, relieved to see Gavin sprawled out. Who punched him? Who’s this mysterious guy trying to save us? She was a little afraid to turn around and look.

“So… who are you?”

“I’m your big brother Jakub,” he rasped. Kat’s heart stopped.

“Jakub? You’re the one my father hates!”

He drew up behind her, unfastened the ties around her wrists. Kat rubbed the newly freed, chafed skin.

“Yes,” he whispered. “That’s why I speak this way, because he cut my throat years ago.”

He went to untie Lauren’s straps. “But I was a bad man back then,” Jakub said. “I’ve changed. Maybe Dad will learn to trust me again.”

Was he in France all this time? Kat wondered. What made him decide to come back? And how did he know we were here?

He finished removing Lauren’s ties. She stood up, staggering for a moment.

“Thank you,” Lauren muttered. Jakub nodded.

“I suppose we should leave now,” Jakub said observing Gavin, who still wasn’t moving.

“Don’t you think you should kill him before we leave? Cut off his head or something?”

“My dear sister, killing doesn’t come so easily to me anymore. I think we can get away without him bothering us. He seems to be out cold.”

Oooh, his voice sounds so creepy whenever he speaks. Kat shuddered eying Lauren; but Lauren regarded Jakub with a funny look.

“So you’re really not going to kill him? He tried to hurt me and Lauren!”

“No. I’m really not going to kill him.” Jakub paused. “So easy to tell how you were raised in a pro-murder environment.”

And you once tried to hurt my mother! Hypocrite. Hypocrite. Hypocrite! She’d just met him, but already Kat hated her oldest brother. On the other hand, she couldn’t very well hate him too much since he saved her.

Meanwhile, Lauren kept staring at Jakub.

“Lauren is your name?” Jakub asked her. She nodded. “Beautiful name, beautiful girl.”

“Thanks.” She seemed flustered, embarrassed… yet she was glowing from Jakub’s compliments.

Oh, my God. He’s already flirting with Lauren! He’s just like Reznik! And Lauren’s falling for it!

Her BFF, yet another hypocrite she knew.

“How did you find us? Did you know we were missing?” Kat asked, puzzled.

“I was told that Gavin had taken you. One of the Dempires betrayed him.”

There were still more answers Kat needed, but she didn’t ask. Yet. She was more concerned with getting home.

Jakub led them to his SUV. Kat couldn’t help but notice something in the back seat…

a child.

Kat shook her head in bewilderment.

“That’s Xander. He’s my son.”

You have a son?! Omigod, Dad’s going to freak out again. Hell, I’m freaking out.

“I’m starving,” Lauren whined.

“Get in the vehicle, ladies. I’ll take you home. Kat, I’ll take you back to Dad’s house.”

“Wait,” Kat said. “I don’t live with Dad anymore. I live with Hunter Logan.” Even though I can’t stand him at the moment.

“No. You’re going to Dad’s house.”

“Okay. Fine. I’ll go to Dad’s house.”

After they climbed in, Jakub started the SUV and pulled out.

Kat glanced in the back.

Xander was a beautiful boy; maybe about eight years old.

Kat wondered about his mother. Where was she?

It was a quiet, uncomfortable drive to the Haas residence. At least initially.

Finally Jakub divulged that he was staying at a local motel, after having recently moved back from France. Needless to say, Xander’s mother was one of the French citizens. Jakub had basically ‘stolen’ his own son.

Hypocrite! Kat’s mind screamed. You haven’t changed one bit, Jakub.

“Jakub, can I spend the night with you in your motel room?” Lauren blurted. “I don’t feel like going home tonight and being alone.”

Jakub chuckled; licked his lips.

Thanks for reading.

  1. omg!!! that was epic!!1 i knew it i knew it i kneewwww Jakub was comming back! lol omfg he has a son, wow that blew my mind lol, sorry about the sqeualy bit there but that was epic lol

    • Thank you Alyssa! πŸ˜€ So you already knew Jakub was coming back? I don’t think you were the only one who suspected, lol. One of my readers (Jed) asked about Jakub returning in last chapter’s comment, and I didn’t really know how to reply to that. XD

      At least you guys weren’t expecting him to have a son! πŸ™‚ hehe

      no need to apologize about the squeeing, I’m glad you loved this chapter!! And thanks for saying it was ‘epic’!! ^_^

  2. Why was my first reactions, “Oh shit Jakub has a son!”? Is it because I love the idea or because it’s Jakub? Either way, I’m swooning! Having a son changed him did it?

    He saved his sister! That was sweet! I don’t know why but I’m hoping Vaclav will make amends. I don’t see Aubrey doing so very easily since he was trying to…OMG!!! Xander is another Rez!!! He is the first son of a vamp older than 300 yrs! OMG!!!!!! Sorry, that really just hit me in the middle of a thought!

    Lauren is going to walk away with a Haas child in her womb!

    I wonder how he and Rez will get along. Hot ass Rez! Yum!

    Just noticed but um, Gavin was kind of cute in a creep sort of way.

    • Yup, he’s got a son! finally, lol. He had 300-something years to breed. Not to say that he hasn’t had kids in the past, but who knows where they are. πŸ˜†

      I love the idea of Jakub finally having a child too. πŸ™‚ Yup, seems like having a son changed him…

      yep, he saved his sister! The asshole should save her anyhow. XD Vaclav made amends with Hunter, but not sure how it’ll go with Jakub (lol actually I do know how it’ll go, but yeah). As for Aubrey, no she’ll always hate him. LOL. Haha, yes Xander is another Rez! So true. And so I think you’ll enjoy the next chapter. πŸ™‚ no problem, it’s pretty exciting that Xander has the same powers as Reznik.

      Hmmm. Maybe she will. But this scenario might turn out unexpected. >_> but it will be interesting nevertheless, haha.

      He might get along OK with Rez, or they might end up hating each other. It’s hard to tell! πŸ˜› And yes, hot ass Rez indeedie! XD

      Gavin is cute. Creepy, but cute. I know it’s bad to think that about an enemy, but me and you have that in common (we love our bad boys). *huge grin*

  3. Awsome! πŸ™‚ As usual! Xander is so cute! πŸ˜€ I cant wait to see what happens and find out more!!!

    • hey James! Thank you, yeah Xander is a cutie. He’s as cute as Cody. I had to edit Xander in CAS though to get him that adorable. :/

      Thanks again!! *hugs* πŸ˜€

  4. Haahhhhh… didn’t I say last time… something about Jakub coming back? Ahhhhhhh…. awesomeness! *cools down*
    Alright, first off, great title. πŸ˜‰ I thought Jakub would come in the cells and torture the girls or something. Then I remembered…Gavin was the one who kidnapped the girls. O.o Yeah, his voice must sound really creepy. I mean his head was nearly completely severed. I keep forgetting that Jakub is related to Kat and Rez. But he looked so cool in that outfit. That CC stuff? I know the necklace is. Wow, I didn’t expect him to have a son. Ah… with the Haas hair. πŸ™‚ Very intriguing. I wonder if fatherhood has mellowed him a bit. Or maybe he had killed the mother. Looks like they are vagabonding around. Will V freak out? hm….I think he will draw the wrong conclusion when he sees his son.But we shall see!
    The weekend is approaching and I haven’t updated stuff…I feel bad, but I am working on it.

    • Yes you were right, smarty pants! XD ahahahahaa!

      lol thanks. It’s perfect for ol’ Jakub’s return. LMAO, you thought Jakub would torture them?? lol, then you remembered about Gavin! Yup, his head was almost totally cut off. Yuck. Oh, about the outfit he was wearing: Yowzers! So hot. πŸ˜› yeah, the jacket is from the S3 store, the pants are from Club Crymson I think, and the dog collar thingy is also CC, but forgot where I got that… Well of course his son has the Haas blondish hair!! In fact he kinda looks more like Rez than Jakub… which reminds me, I need to get Cody in the story more. I do have a sub plot planned for that. Anyhow, it seems as though fatherhood has mellowed him, although it wasn’t nice to take Xander away from his poor mother. 😦 So he’s still a bastard in that respect, at least.

      Good point about maybe killing the mother. That’s all I’ll say… well I mean he didn’t actually kill her, but I was thinking up a plot regarding the mother later. But that doesn’t mean Jakub is going to kill her.

      rambling….

      You could be right about V. drawing the wrong conclusion. It would make sense. :/

      Meh, no need to feel bad. Hell I’m starting to fall behind too. I have one more chapter made. 😯 I like to stay ahead, but it hasn’t been working out that way lately… not quite.

      Can’t wait to read your update, though (once it’s ready)! πŸ˜€

  5. I really liked Jakub’s role in this chapter. It was very interesting, I hope he really has changed. It seems like he has, it was rather annoying how Kat kept calling him a hypocrite. I like her but she’s a very naive girl it seems like, she annoys me often. Great chapter though, I’m looking forward to more Jakub time. Also, Gavin is very very attractive, I wouldn’t mind if he held me hostage.

    • Thanks Megsy! ^^ LOL Kat annoys you. I know what you mean, I have a bad habit of making my female characters irritating at times. 😳 But glad you liked the chapter! Also glad you like Jakub being back in the story. πŸ™‚

      haha! OMG I wouldn’t mind if Gavin held me hostage either! Yay, another one like me who likes the baddies!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ hehe

  6. wow Xander is so cute πŸ™‚ xxxxxxxxxxx

  7. AAAAIIIEEE! Jakub’s back! Wow, he actually saved the girls too. I wonder if he really has changed…he’s right, Lauren is very pretty. Three guesses what she has on her mind. lol And Jakub has a son now (he’s so cute!!!), I wonder if the mother knows he took him. Or maybe that was a mutual agreement. I don’t know, but the story just keeps getting better! Looking forward to chapter 82!

    • haha yep Jakub’s back! And seems nice now. Yeah, Lauren’s cute/pretty, but I may tweak her at some point in CAS. I’m weird πŸ˜› LOL, yes 3 guesses indeed. 1. sex. 2. sex 3. sex 4 sex sex sex πŸ˜† IKR, Xander is such a cutie. ^_^ I think he looks like Rez. Yeah, the mother knows he took him, so she’s probably pretty pissed off. That will come back up in the story later. I also have to get Ash back into the story and work something around her, Cody and Rez (Ash and Rez won’t get back together though).

      thank you so much TenderWolf!! πŸ˜€ *hugs*!

  8. I LOVE JAKUB. I DON’T CARE THAT HE WAS EVIL, I ALWAYS LOVED HIM.

    Fo’ realz.

    And Xander! Only a Haas can have a son that adorable! …Maybe not. Maybe he’s adopted? Who’s the mother? Why do I like Lauren so much? I DON’T KNOW.

    I NEVER KNOW

    I seriously thought they were going to get raped for a second .3.

    • Yay! hehe, mwahahahahahaa. My worst, most baddest characters are almost always my favorites. I’m glad some of my readers feel the same way. πŸ˜€ yay again!

      Bad characters bring a while new dimension to a story. IMO.

      Oh yes, only a Haas could have such adorable offspring! πŸ˜› LOL, no he’s not adopted, silly. He really is J’s biological son. J has probably had many children way in the past, but who knows where they are. Just sayin’ that I know how illogical it is that a ‘whore’ like him hasn’t had some kids in the last 300-something years. XD Mommy is a French lady, a non-vampire (well obviously). Lauren is a little annoying to Kat, but otherwise she’s sweet. And she wants Jakub. Maybe that’s why you like her. I like her too. πŸ™‚ there will be more plots wrapped around our beloved Lauren. ^_^ hehe

      haha, you ‘never know’; join that club! I’m the same way, I get confused easily at times. You are funneh!

      oh, no! The dreaded ‘R’ word. Nope, can’t do that in this story. That’s bad…. I know I sometimes make characters come close to it (like Jakub did with Aubrey once) but that’s about it.

      😳

    • YES.

      YES I AM -brick’d-

      French lady, eh? Then I guess it’s je nais sais pas. YEY! PLOTITUDE! -Penguin skip-

      YES THE DREADED WORD…and, heh, one subject your skirting around, yeah! Just kidding, my dear ^,..,^

      -Patpat-

    • lol you’re not -brick’d- at all. If you were, you’d have all kinds of bruises by now! (lame joke, srry). πŸ˜›

      Yup. French lady. Jakub just stole his kid from her. Nice eh? haha I have no idea what you just said, although I did look up ‘je nais sais pas’ and it seems to mean ‘I don’t know’, which is what I just said. πŸ˜† Penguins? Where’s the penguins????? I want PENGUINS!!!!!!!! http://jenssims.wordpress.com/2010/06/05/new-creation-from-thesims3-com-2/

      Dreaded word indeed. I skirt around that as much as I can for particular reasons, lol. >_> lol I know you’re kidding. :p how the heck did you come up with that ‘smiley’ thingy? I’ve tried to figure out to make a vampire fang smiley for YEARS. You are very clever. And now I’m going to steal your idea and use it. πŸ˜€ Starting now! ^,..,^ <<that looks so awesome!

      hehe

  9. i haen’t commented in a long time…lol we had that nor’easter thing and no power for a day…and a foot of snow…and then several horse shows and horse practice…and other shit πŸ™‚ So yeah..I like how Lauren just randomly appears in the story. And how She got jumped on by Gavin…Jakub is still very smexy (yum) πŸ™‚ And his kid. And he looks badass with his…collar…which i assume covers his scar. And some strange french woman? I speak french…and I’m currently obsessed with this commercial btw http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iM9D86d8RWw and yeah πŸ˜›

    • oops commented with my wordpress account!

    • LOL it happens (commenting on wrong acct.). You had a bad storm recently? OMG that’s weird!! Because my hubby mentioned something about the East Coast (I think) getting snow this EARLY in the year! WTH? I used to live in OH and never got snow in November! But anyhow, so you had no power for a day?? Oh that really sucks. 😦 The foot of snow sounds awesome though. I love snow, hehe. So you missed horse practice? Ugh, I’m sorry. LOL, I know Lauren was kinda random. πŸ˜› Kat has some friends off and on, and is always making new ones (kinda like my hubby’s sister IRL). haha, she got ‘jumped on’ by Gavin. πŸ˜› Maybe soon she’ll get jumped on by someone else. πŸ˜† Oh yes, Jakub’s still sexy as ever, if not more so. *tongue hangs out* His kid is utterly cuteness. Yep, I love his collar too, and yeah it’s there to cover his neck scar. Yep, J. had an affair with a French citizen (doesn’t that sound hot). The only way I know French is to look up a translator, haha. I did take German in school, but wow is that crap hard to learn O_O ooooh I’ll check out that commercial… πŸ˜€

  10. How weird Jakub has a son now *gasp*! Anyway great chapter, and i’m still right Gavin hasn’t killed anyone

    • Yep, he’s got a son. Apparently it happened about 7 years after the happenings in chapter 49. (I suck at math, so if I’m wrong about that, then you know why). So Vaclav kicking his son in the jewels (in chap 49) didn’t affect Jakub’s ability to procreate. πŸ˜†

      Thank you so much, Bobby. πŸ˜€ As for Gavin, he’s utterly worthless. XD
