Chapter 20 -- Sometimes We Miss the Cadance

Lukas returned home to find Peaches crying in his bedroom.

"What the hell's wrong with you," he spit, still upset at losing his best friend.

"I want to talk about what happened at prom," she whispered.

"What's left to talk about? I thought we decided that you are to blame for missing out."

"You really don't remember anything...?" she softly responded.

"I'm finished with Gena. I really don't want to think about it anymore, but thanks anyway," he sarcastically replied.

"Not about Gena. About us."

"Us? There is no us. You weren't even there."

"I was there Lukas. Tim drove me there late, no thanks to you."

"Well then I hope you had fun," he said rolling his eyes.

"Lukas, I'm pregnant," she suddenly stated, bursting out in new tears.

"Ha! And who was out of their mind enough to even touch you?" he laughed.

"You," she said quietly.

"What?" he asked, stopping his laughter at once.

"After you saw Denv and Gena," she started, going on to explain how he had drank too much punch, grabbed her and after sharing a kiss had proceeded to drag her to the locker room. Letting Lukas figure out the rest, she gave him a moment of silence.

Coming to the correct conclusion, Lukas shouted "GET OUT!" and pushed her into the hallway, slamming the door.

He was sure as hell not ready to be a father.

Tim heard he was to be a grandfather at breakfast that Saturday morning. Nearly choking on his food at just the thought. He wasn't that old was he?

S, although she was more worried than him, tried to talk some sense into the situation. They were only 3 days away from becoming elders; if they had produced children at a younger age, then they would be grandparents by now anyway.

"I guess you're right," Tim conceded, "I'll try to look on the bright side. Maybe our grandchildren will be green!"

Denver was also a titch worried.

"Noel, I'm not ready to be an uncle. I'm a teenager for frick's sake."

Noel, being the intuitive one of the family, was actually excited at the prospect of being an aunt.

"It'll be just like practice for when you have kids or I have kids! And besides, I think we're more ready than mom and dad. At least we have to be strong for them. It could happen to one of us one day too."

Denver just glanced awkwardly away at the idea of having kids of his own. At least not anytime soon he promised himself.

Lukas, on the other hand, was full of bottled up frustration at it all. How could he not remember what happened at prom? How could he even do that to Peaches? Even if she was sometimes mean, Peaches had been his only friend until that lying bitch Gena had come along. He knew he was going to have to prove he could be a good father to her, but how could he even start to explain it all? He was going to have to continue to think.

During this extremely stressful time in her life, when she seemingly had no one to turn to, Peaches kept mostly to herself, using her easel to take her mind off of it all. She didn't want to be a mother anymore than Lukas wanted to be a father. It wasn't fair. If he hadn't of been a jerk at Prom, none of this would have happened. She didn't ask for any of this. Upon finishing her latest painting, she realized what she had to do.

Unfortunately, she could not think any longer about her decision as the baby was coming. Hurrying to the hospital on her own, she barely made it in time.

Aging up to a young adult as soon as she returned home, Peaches cuddled with her babies. After putting Carter into his crib, she hugged Kadance one last time before whispering, "I'm sorry I can't be here for you, but I'll always love the both of you very much. Goodbye..."



    I mean... sure she's annoying. But I lover her! Damn the single parent rules... they only ever attack the attractive generations y'know.

    Also: yay twins!

  2. Oh, it's the stupid Random Legacy rules again. That's why I only play Legacies my own way. :|
    Anyways, NOOOOES PEACHES!!1!ONE!

  3. I'm feeling rather sorry for Peaches now, despite not liking her at all

  4. Aw... I like Peaches. Sure, she can be a pain in the ass (and pure b-face), but still. I hope Lukas is ready to a *single* father (who is ever ready for that?). Poor kiddo.

  5. I used to feel sorry for Lucas, but not really like him, and really dislike Peaches. Now I feel sorry for Peaches and really dislike Lucas. Role reversal.

  6. I agree with Giga. I like Peaches. I'm sad she's leaving. :(

  7. Hm, I agree with tamlynd as well. Though I did kind of dislike Lucas a bit... :B
    Now I just plain hate him, and feel kinda sorry for Peachy-gal. (can I call her that? Oh PLEASE tell me I can call her that)

  8. Nath, you sure may call her that lol.

    And the rest of you, I used to haaaate Peaches, and now I'm super sad I have to let her go...
