Ciderwood Lane: Chapter 2 – Perfect Little Lie

 As I got ready for an important appointment, I thought about my current life. It’s been about 5 or so years since my family and I settled in this mysterious house. Its only mysterious cause of the way we got it. A strange note with key, saying this house is ours. No rent, no mortgage to pay. Just utilities and whatever extra amenities we plan to get is what we have to pay.

Living on Ciderwood lane apparently domesticated me into a proper housewife like the other households in this suburbia section of town. This wasn’t how I expected my life to turn out to….



I mastered the art of making PB& J sandwiches for a hungry 5 year boy and sometimes for his visiting friends. I wasn’t much of the cooking type, Ciderwood lane quickly changed that.




I mastered the art of writing… Writing grocery lists that is. One thing I learned from the woman of Ciderwood lane, writing such list was extremely important when visiting the local Knott Street market. It’s where all the wives of Ciderwood lane do their food shopping, they wouldn’t be caught dead shopping at another store across town. Even then the stores across town are much cheaper.




 I’ve also mastered the art of cleaning up questionable puddles on the kitchen floor. I learned all sorts of cleaning tips from the wives of Ciderwood lane. Learning what works, what doesn’t. Having a perfectly clean home was important. Cooking a perfect meal was important. Being the perfect wife and mother was important. Having a perfect family was important. Perfection was the key for fitting into Ciderwood lane.




And lastly, your appearance is important. I mastered to art of masking the unhappiness that lies within me. I must keep up with my beauty, always wear a smile on face. Show no signs of weakness. My life is “perfect”.  My marriage is “happy”. My family has no “dark secrets”. Everything is “grand”.




I do all these things that I despise, for the sake of fitting in and having friends for once. I always had issues with making friends, some say I’m too snarky and sarcastic which made me into a cynical bitch. I have to check my bitchy-ness at door when I go to check the mail, or visit a neighbor down the street. Wear a fake smile when I wave at the neighbors that annoys me. But I bite my tongue for my husband and son. It makes their lives here a lot more easier when I’m uncomfortable. Their happiness is important…. 





 “Desi, I’m about to head out for a bit. Umm.. I’m going to the store to get some more bread. I made some sandwiches for Ender once he gets hungry. I did make extra in case some of his friends come by.”

“Yeahhh. Watch this boy, prepare to eat my dust.”

“No fair dad! How did you get nitros?”

“A master never tells their secrets.”

“You mean magicians and you’re not magical, dad!”

“Desmond? Did you hear me?”

“Yeah hun.”




 “Then what did I say then?”

“Feed the boy bread. You’re gonna go see friends. Have fun, dear!”

“Desmond! Will for stop playing that game for a second and listen to me? I didn’t say feed Ender bread nor did I say I was going to go see friends. I am going to the store to get BREAD and I made Ender’s lunch.”

“Sorry.. I’ll feed the boy but he might get full from all the dust he’s eating ha ha ha!”

“MOM! Tell dad to stop cheating!”

“Desmond, let him win! He’s just a boy.”

“No can do, the boy must learn to never be a sore loser.”

“Mom, Dad NEVER lets me win! He’s a big cheater!”

“Don’t be a glory hog, Desi. Let Ender win for once.”

“Where’s the fun in that?”

“For fucks sake, Desmond! Just one time.”

“Fine…whatever. Let our boy grow up to think things must be handed down to him and how he must never learn to work for anything. That’s grade A parenting there, Penelope..”

“I don’t have time for this, Desmond! I’m leaving! Remember to feed your child!”

“Have fun buying bread, dear!”




 I tend to get annoyed with my husband when it comes to raising our son. I swear he can be a child himself at times. I think most of the messes in the house was made by Desi. Of course I would teach Ender that he has to work for things and nothing is handed over but can the poor kid win in a stupid video game for once. He can finally have a moment of happiness and then he’ll work harder to win for real. I knew buying that PlayBox 5 for Christmas was gonna be an issue.




 I lied to Desmond of where I was really going. Instead I made my way to Fairview Memorial for an important visit. I’ve been keeping a secret from Desmond for that past few weeks. He has no idea of all the visits I’ve been making here. But I won’t be able to keep this a secret for long. I have to tell him of what’s really going on with.




 It felt like a lifetime as I waited in the waiting room. I brought along one of my favorite books for me to read. I couldn’t be bothered for the trashy magazines that filled with celebrity gossip and nonsense of 10 ways to keep your man happy. Feed him and suck his dick, that’s the only 2 tips a female needs to know if she wanna keep her man happy. There needs to be an article for men on tips to keep your wife happy. Pick up your dirty underwear, put the toilet seat down and take the kid to the park so I can take a nap in a hot bath. 

I longed to hear, “Penelope Flake, the doctor ready.” coming from the nurse’s mouth. I just wanted to get this appointment over and return to my “perfect” family to cook the “perfect” dinner.



 “Things are looking well with the baby, Penny. Take a look.”

“Oh, how nice. So when is my due date?”

“I say about January 11th. Congrats, Penny!”

“So how far along will that make me?”

“Judging by the baby’s size, the GA is about 8 weeks.”





 “No! That can’t be right. The child should be younger by 2 weeks! I should be further along than 8 weeks! Because Desi and I- I mean… Are you sure that I’m 8 weeks along??”

“Yes, Penny. Just look at the screen. I measured the baby at 1.6 centimeters and the embryonic tail is almost gone. You can see for yourself. This baby’s GA is 8 weeks and 2 days.”

“Are you for sure that you’re doing your job right?”

“Yes, I am positive that I measure the baby correctly. Is there a problem?”

“No! What makes you think there’s a problem? I’m just making sure you got this baby’s age right!”

“Hey.. I’ve been doing ultrasounds for that last 25 years. I’ve never been wrong before.”

“There’s a first time for everything..”

“I can assure you that I am correct. The baby is 8 weeks and 2 days to be exact and your due date is around January 11th, almost a new years baby. “




 “I guess I should thank you, Dr. Judd. I’m sorry for snapping at you. I know you’re great at your job. You were Ender’s doctor when I was pregnant with him. Sorry that you didn’t get to deliver him, Desi just had to visit LP. We promise to stay in town for this one. I just feel a little extra bitchy with this pregnancy. Maybe it’s a girl ha ha.”

“It’s okay, Penny. I was a little cranky with both of my pregnancies with my daughters, Vega and Veronica. Poor Garren had to put up with my mess. But I’m kinda concern about you mentioning how you wanted the baby to be older.”

“Ya know that Ender’s birthday is close to the 11th… I figure he wouldn’t want to share his special day with a little sibling and plus..Desi’s grandmother’s birthday is the 27th of Jan. Desi adores her, it would be nice if the baby was born on her birthday.. She passed a year ago..”

“Oh I see. I’m sorry to hear about his loss. Okay, I understand now. Babies aren’t always born on their due dates. Some later, some sooner, we try to keep that bun in the oven until Jan 11 in case there’s an issue. But I hope all goes well, Penny. I’m curious of why your husband wasn’t here for the first ultrasound. It’s an exciting thing.”




 “Uh.. Busy day for him, he wanted to be here. But for his sake, can we pretend that the baby is younger by 2 weeks when Desi attends coming appointments. It would mean the world to him if he thinks the baby will be due around his late grandmother’s birthday?”

“Honestly Penny… I really don’t feel comfortable doing something like that. I’m sure he’ll be happy with another Jan baby.”

“Please, Martina.. We’re friends..kinda.”

“Look Penny, I’m sorry but I can’t do that. I’ll get in trouble for falsifying documents.”

“You don’t have to do that, just when Desi attends a scan. Like for the 12 week scan just say the baby is 10 weeks.”

“There’s a huge difference between a 10 week old fetus and a 12 week old fetus in sizes. I’m sorry, I have to be honest.”

“Well…just don’t mention the age then! I want Desi to believe this baby is older. He loved his nana.”


“Please, Martina?”

“I’ll see what I can do but I don’t feel right about this…” 




I headed to the store after leaving the hospital. I did tell Desi that I was going to get some bread and he would question me if I came home without some. I had a lot on mind after having my first ultrasound to see my new baby. There’s more going on…




 I knew I came in for bread but I found myself wandering aimlessly down the aisles. Browsing for items which I didn’t need. My mind is too clouded for doing some grocery shopping. However I did notice how everything here is overpriced. 7 dollars for a 4 pound bag of sugar. It cost only 2.88 at the store across town. But I am a lady of Ciderwood and we must shop at this wallet robbing store…

I loathe keeping up ridiculous appearance. It’s not like we have the money for this… Desmond refuses to get a real job.. He wanna live out his dream, restoring old cars.. It’s a stupid dream that will make us go broke! 




 Deciding on which loaf of bread to get wasn’t an easy decision. Do I want the overpriced bread or the ridiculous overpriced bread or the put a second mortgage on the house, priced bread. Decisions, decisions.. Ender tends to like the ridiculous overpriced bread most of all.

Some changes are gonna have to be made now with a second child on the way. Serious changes if we want to stay on Ciderwood lane. I hope this pregnancy will push Desi into getting a real job for once. He did have one for a couple of days before he stupidly quit it for his dumb dream. His dream is gonna make us have to find another home somewhere in Lansing Falls.

There are other nice communities in town but Ciderwood lane is one of the nicest next to Honey Oak lane. Despite the ridiculous ways of Ciderwood lane, I want to stay! I can’t let that hag, Indie Daniels win anyway. She’s been wishing for me to leave since she thought I ruined her strawberry pie. I bet that vinegar did her a flavor by masking the true nastiness of her skunk pie! 



I took the long way home after shopping. I still needed to think about things but I know that I need to reveal the thing that I’m hiding from Desi one day.. I questioned myself, when? When do I tell him? He would be hurt if he knew I had the first scan without him but I needed to know how old my unborn baby is without him there…




 “Getting bread huh? It takes you 3 hours to buy some bread? What’s his name?”

“Wha-what? What are you taking about??”

“Ha ha ha! Seriously, Pen? Where did you really go?”

“To the store like I said..”

“For 3 hours? You hate shopping for food. Besides, you only got bread.”

“There was an old friend there, we caught up over a cup of coffee.”

“Friend? Ha ha ha! You didn’t have any friends in high school.”

“I did too! I had one!”

“Bullshit, Pen.”




 “Fine, you caught me. I wasn’t at the store for 3 hours. I was at the hospital. I had an appointment.”

“The hospital? Are you okay?”

“Yeah… I’m pregnant.”

“Seriously? We’re gonna have another baby?”


“Oh wow. I can’t believe it. I’m happy. I gotta call my mom and tell her the news.”

“Let’s hold off on that cause ya know.. It’s still early.”

“But I’m too excited to keep it from my mama.”

“Well you’re gonna have to hold off until the second trimester.. I’m only 6 weeks along..”

“Not Ender either?”

“Not yet.”



I could see the happiness in Desmond’s eyes. He was overjoyed to hear the news about the pregnancy. I made him promised that he won’t tell anyone about the pregnancy until I’m in my second trimester. I know he’s gonna have a hard time keeping things a secret for a while. 

It wasn’t long before he started discussing baby names. I could tell that he really wanted this baby when he knows our finances haven’t been that great. I help run a local website selling prints for the art museum. It pays but not enough to be more comfortable. I took on a second job by selling Tupperware online to other housewives which does surprisingly well. But still, it’s not enough..

If Desi would work, then I got go to school full time. I dropped out of high school when I was pregnant with Ender. I got my G.E.D. shortly before giving birth. People my age are in college and I wanna go too. Even if it’s at the community college in town. School is school, plus I have a family now. I’m only 19, turning 20 soon and already a domesticated housewife. But I’m not sure if I should hold the housewife card since I am the sole breadwinner. 



 “Hey dad!”

“Hey, I wanna talk to you about something.”


“I just wanna tell you that your mom and I will always love you no matter what.”

“I know but why you wanna tell me that?”

“In case there’s any possible changes in the future.. New add ons and such.”

“Cause mom is gonna have a baby?”

“What makes you think that?”

“Cause mom was throwing up a lot in the bathroom and shouting, “Not this shit again. I just got my body back.” Auntie Regan threw up a lot too like mom did. Babies make girls do that, right?”

“Language, boy.  That doesn’t always mean a female is having a baby. It could be the flu, not in Regan’s case.”

“Dad, I know mom is having a baby. I left my walkie talkie in the hall. I think Davy is a dumb name for a baby.”

“Well… I didn’t ask for your opinion. That was almost your name, boy! “



 “Dad can I ask you something?”


“Last night I left my walkie talkie in your bedroom. You and mom were making noises like you guys were eating ice cream without me. Am I right?”

“Yes, boy. And stop leaving your walkie talkies in our room. Your childhood will be awkward.”

“Why couldn’t I have any ice cream last night?”

“Cause its ice cream for married people only. One day when you’re married, you can have married ice cream with your wife.”

“But why did mom say that you tasted good?”

“Your mom is almost done making your dinner.”

“But dad? You didn’t answer my question.”

“Little boys who ask too many questions don’t get kiddy ice cream after dinner.”





 “How do like the spaghetti? I used a different sauce this time.”

“It’s too garlicly. Won’t this kinda kill me? I’m half vampire.”

“Don’t be silly, that’s hollywood. Garlic won’t kill you.”

“Well, I really don’t like garlic, mom. It’s yucky.”

“Eat it anyway or you’ll be skinny like me.”

“Well I don’t want that.”

“Then eat.”



 “Are you gonna be eating for 2 now?”


“Cause you’re having a baby. Auntie Regan said she was eating for 2. That’s why she didn’t share her cinnabons with me.”

“How did you know about the baby? I told Desmond to keep his mouth shut! Your dad is such a blabber mouth!”

“Dad didn’t tell me. I heard it on my walkie taklie.”

“Ender, what did I tell you about spying? Spying is wrong.”

“Tell the government that. The government spies on us. They hide mini cameras in our laptops. Besides, you spy on Indie.”

“That’s different. Where did you hear such things anyway?”

“Uncle Maddox.”

“Figures, your uncle is a weirdo. It’s reasons why we call him “Mad”. He’s mad-crazy.”



 “Mom, can I ask you something?”


“How did a baby get in you? Cergio said babies escape from hell and climb inside the mom and hide for 9 months. Did I come from hell too?”

“No sweetie, just Cergio.”

“Well how then?”

“Maybe another day when you’re older, you can ask your dad that.”




After dinner, I stepped out in the front yard to get some fresh air. I still had a lot on mind. Desi and Ender are in bliss about the baby but I’m not. 

This baby shouldn’t happen….

It kills me to see how Desi is about this baby…

It would kill him if he knew the truth..

I hold a secret within, I wonder how long can I hold it..

I cried when I was first told about my pregnancy…

I knew of what I had done weeks before..

This baby is not my husband’s child..

This baby is my neighbor’s child……

Ciderwood Lane: Chapter 1 – Twisted Love

Cergio’s POV

Today is the day I’ll bring in the final female. Regan Locke, a young witch whom I met some time ago. I’m unsure how Regan will take things when I bring her home. I haven’t exactly told her of what the arrangements would be. Regan is more delicate compare to Nina and Sasha, so I wasn’t upfront about things at first. I promise her I will take care of her if she comes live with me since she’s carrying my child. Regan agreed and I had an area set up for her. She’s in her 8th month of pregnancy and it is time for her to come live with me.

She had text me non stop for the last few days over her excitement about the baby and moving in. The doctor saw the baby would be a boy. My first son. I don’t care much for kids but I will admit to having a little excitement of having a male child.



I guess I should be getting dressed and ready to go get her. But since she lives with her sister who is almost the mother of Ada’s friend, I have to bring that annoying child with me so she can see her friend. It is the weekend and she is supposed to spend this time with her mother but always puts up a fight and wants to bother me. Nina didn’t want to fight with Ada over her spending time with her, so she left for town with Sasha and Fran to go shopping. She should have made the brat go with her. I swear that devil rat is a pain in the ass.

Today will not be fun.



“Annoying child! Hurry up or I’m leaving you here. I should leave you but I promise your annoying friend I will bring you with me.”




“I’m ready.”

“Not with that hair you are. What the fuck happen?”

“Mom didn’t finish unbraiding my hair.”

“Go figures.. I can’t bring you out in public like that. You can stay.”

“No daddy, I think it’s cute.”

“Child, please.”



“Daddy, you can’t leave me here all alone. Everyone is gone. I’m only 5 years old. There are laws about that, daddy.”




“Why the fuck is your eyes rolled in the back of your head? I always knew you were the spawn of Satan. I can’t have you looking like that in public. Rolled back eyes, nappy hair. You’ll make me look bad. What am I suppose to do then? I have to move in Regan in today.”




“But daddy, I wanna see Ender today. I didn’t get to play with him for a whole 4 days. It’s not fair. I wanna go. I think my hair is okay.”



“No, no it’s not. Look, I guess I will do your hair with this magically appearing brush. I can make you look more decent than what you already are.”




“No! You are just gonna make me look ugly! My hair is okay, let’s just go you asshole!”





“Not like I really have to try to make you look “ugly”. You’re just about there already.”

“I’m not ugly! If I’m ugly then you’re ugly! Momma said I look like you, you dummy!”

“You look nothing like me. You look like a wet bird on crack!”

“No I don’t! You look a wet bird on crack that got hit by a train!”

“I do not, you devil rat! You look like a frog crossed with a rat on heroin that got hit by a plane!”

“How can someone get hit by a plane when planes are in the sky, stupid!”

“You’re a flying frog-rat!”

“I hate you, dad!”

“I hate you! Now go get your nappy hair repair set so I can do something with that mess.”




“Now I gotta send Regan a text telling her we will be late cause you’re a nappy headed frog.”




“I’m not a nappy headed frog you ass!”





“Ouch daddy! You’re hurting me!”

“Then don’t be so nappy next time. You should have hair like your sister Fran.”

“But dad, she’s bald.”

“Exactly. And if I can’t fix this then you’ll be bald like her.”

“Don’t shave my hair! I don’t wanna be bald!”

“You can wear a wig.”

“I don’t wanna wear a wig!”




“Are you almost done? I’m bored.”

“Chill out, I just need to do this one area and then we can go.”

“If my hair is ugly then I’m gonna hate you forever.”

“Whatever. I think I did an awesome job. I think I should be a stylist.”

“Please don’t.. Just don’t.”

“Don’t be a hater. When you see what I’ve done, you’ll recommend me to all your nappy friends for me to do their hair.”

“If they wanna be ugly then yeah.”

“Shut up demon child. I’m done. Go look in the mirror but your face might break it.”

“Whatever loser.”




We were about 30 minutes late to get to Regan’s sister’s place. I am a bit annoyed of Nina leaving Ada’s hair like that. What I can’t stand is half assness, she could have finished undoing her hair then styled it before leaving with Sasha. She knew she was coming with me. I will have to deal with Nina later on but now I have to think on how I’m going to reveal the truth to Regan without her getting upset.

She has no choice with coming with me at this point. The child must be born and raise on my land. She doesn’t have to stay but I wish for her to do so. I admire her sweetness, gentleness and native nature. Something that is different from Nina and Sasha, plus she’s a lot younger than them both. With her younger, I have a feeling that she may not take this lightly as Nina and Sasha did.

As I drove to Regan’s location with Ada, we chatted a little during the way. Ada is aware of what’s going on and is content on the nature of it. However the only thing that bothers my daughter is the curse within us. She often gets upset with me, blaming me I’m the fault of why she can’t be like normal kids. She wants to go on all night camp outs, go to slumber parties and go on summer night glow bug hunts with other kids. It’s mainly the tense between us when we fight. I do wish she was like other kids, out doing kids stuff so she wouldn’t be bugging me all the time. I hope some day she can be free.



“Regan is gonna live with us now?”

“Yeah, it’s getting close to her due date.”

“Am I’m really getting a little brother?”

“Uh huh, disappointed?”

“Nope! I’m kinda happy that I will have a sister and a brother. Maybe I won’t be so lonely at home.”

“Not sure how fun babies will be for you. Babies cry, shit and puke too much.”

“Is my momma gonna have another baby soon?”

“Actually I plan on that happening soon. You’re 5, it’s time for another one of you annoying brats.”

“If you think kids are annoying then why do keep making them?”

“I have to, it’s kind of my job.”

“Your job is weird. Why can’t you be a fireman? I want a dad with a cool job.”

“I’m a cool dad, Ada. I don’t have to be a fireman to be cool.”




“Now what?”

“How are babies made?”

“Annoyance and pixie dust.”

“That’s not true! Please tell me.”

“I will when you turn 505 years old.”

“But I’ll be all old and gross by then.”




Regan’s POV


She didn’t like it, she didn’t like him, she didn’t want me to go cause she didn’t trust him. I trust him, I know he wouldn’t do anything to hurt me. I’m having his baby boy after all. I was excited this day that I almost didn’t sleep the night before. I never thought I would find myself into a guy like I am with Cergio. He has some quirks but I like him just the way he is. He’s always been so warming and loving around me. I eagerly leaped into his strong arms after inviting him in. I nearly knocked over his daughter in the process. My sister let out a loud sigh of annoyance as her eyes quickly scans him.

“He’s hiding something. There’s something not right about this whole thing.” My sister said earlier in the day. I assure her that he’s harmless. I didn’t find anything too suspicious about Cergio. I want to move in with him. I like him a lot however I question about the status of our relationship. Were we dating? What are we? Why ask me to move in? Is it because of our unborn child? I do have feelings for him, I think he might have feelings for me. Honestly I’m not sure. Penny thinks I’m crazy by being involved with him. Perhaps things will be official once I move in. 



I will soon learn that I was far from being right.

“I should listen to Penny. She was right.. Why did I do this? This is a mistake..”




I made my way to their spare room to collect the last of my items as Cergio loads my belongings into his car. I could hear my sister following me into the room. As light as she may be, her footsteps were anything but. Once again she let out a sigh. I know she wanted to grip to me so more about me moving but my mind is made up.

I gently pulled a few boys’ oneies that once belonged to my nephew Ender from the top drawer. “I can have these right?” I asked as I sat them down on top of the dresser. There was a pause for moment before she responded. “Yes.” Her voice was soft and faint which is unusual for Penny. “You can take them.” My sister continues. I could hear a crack in her voice as she were about to cry. I quickly turned my face towards her but she stood motionless with her palm resting on her right shoulder.

I know she only followed me to voice her worries once more. It’s almost like she’s the older sister at times. Penny did have to grow up fast when she had Ender when she was a teen. She naturally has that motherly instinct which I hope to have soon. I’m not sure what can I say to make her feel at ease with my decision. 



“I can’t see why you can’t stay here. Is he even plan on being your boyfriend? What is he to you?”

“I don’t know… We never-“

“See, something isn’t right about this. You’re not dating him, then why move in with him? There’s something, I don’t want you to go.”

“He wants to take care of me and the baby. He is the father you know.”

“So? You don’t need a man to take care of you. You always been independent. Were were going to school, doing great until he came along. I don’t want you to throw your life away for some guy.”



“I’m not throwing my life away. I plan on returning back to school after the baby.”

“Where does this guy anyway?”

“Actually he doesn’t say..”




“See…that is why I don’t trust this guy. Something is odd about him. How much do you know about him? You don’t know where he lives, he doesn’t tell you but wants you to move in with him. What if he lives in a crack house? Or under a bridge? Ada told Ender that they live in a tree. I don’t wanna see you get hurt. I don’t want any harm done on my nephew. How can I convince you to stay?”



“I’m going to be fine. There’s no need to worry. I promise to call you everyday so you know that I’m fine. After I have the baby, I’ll bring him by so you can see him. I know Cergio has a mystery about him but that’s what I like about him. Everything will be fine. Besides, it would be crowded here after I have the baby. It’s best if I moved out.”



“I guess you are right. You better hold onto your promise. I can’t wait to meet the little guy. Any names yet?”

“We haven’t talked about names just yet. I was thinking maybe Titus, Kingston or maybe Brenden.” 

“I like those names. Whatever name you pick, I would like.”


“No problem.”



“I don’t see why you have to take my sister. Like who are you to her? I really don’t care much for you.”

“Give him a chance sis.”

“You think you can just waltz in here and take what you like.”

“Because I can. Deal with it.”

“You ass!”




“I see where the blue boy gets his annoyance from.”

“What’s that suppose to mean? Are you calling me and my son annoying?”

“I feel for your husband…”

“Answer my question, jerk!”



“Look at me. My name is Penny and I’m a flat chested annoying nagging woman. Look at me nag, nag, naggity, nag.”

“Look here asshole! Don’t come in my house and insult me! What is your problem?!”




“My problem is that I can’t hear you over the sound of your nagging!”

“I’m not nagging! I am showing concern over my sister cause I don’t trust you! We hardly know anything about you or your background! Your daughter doesn’t much either.”

“My business is none of your concern. I’m not going to do anything fucked up with your sister.”

“Something tells me that you’re not fully up front about everything!”



“Ugh! Do you have an off button. All I hear is blah blah blah, I’m a bitch.”

“You know what… I’m done talking to you since you won’t stop being an asshole! I’m only not kicking you out cause of your daughter and Regan!”

“Yeah? Whatever.”



It was close to sundown and we needed to head home, to my new home because of Ada. Again I promised Penny that I will call, text, email, IM or whatever everyday so she will know that I’m fine. Cergio loaded the last of my things as I gave goodbye hugs to my family. The car ride was quiet but I realize we were starting to head outside of the town. We headed out on the highway passing the lake away. I was getting a little nervous of where we were going. I have no idea of where Cergio lives and had no clue it was outside of the city limits.

My heart start race the further we drove away from town. I wanted to ask where were we going but I felt a lump in my lump in throat that prevented me from speaking. “You took too long to say your goodbyes.” Cergio said to me without glancing over to me. His voice was cold and distant, it made me even more nervous. I clenched my phone with my almost sweating hand debating if I should call for help. I heard Ada humming in the backseat, he wouldn’t try anything with his daughter around would he?

He quickly places his rough hand on my thigh and squeezes it tight. I jerked back a little and glanced over towards him. His focus was on the road and he remained silent. “Shit! I’m losing time! Ada, how are you feeling?” Cergio said as he glances over at Ada. “I’m fine daddy.” Ada replied back. I felt the car go faster which made me feel afraid. I held my pregnant belly trying to comfort myself as we raced down the highway. 

Cergio began to slow down as we were about to turn into a dark wooden area. I felt my heart sank as I began to fear for my life. I thought to myself and wondering why was he taking me into a dark wooden area in the middle of no where. “Daddy, my tummy hurts.” Ada whine from the backseat. Cergio began to drive faster on the dark road, hitting every bump on it. I started to feel dizzy and thought I was going to throw up. It wasn’t long before I could see lights in the distance. Before I knew it the car stop. I quickly turned my head towards Cergio with fear in my eyes. Cergio slowly leans over and places a soft kiss on my forehead. “Welcome home, Regs.”



“This is your bed, your living area. You’ll be sharing this room with Nina and Sasha. I’ll let you settle in while I get your things from the car.”

“It looks nice.”

“I was hoping you’ll like it.”




“Cer, I’m a bit confused about something. You say this is my living area? What’s going on here? Who are Nina and Sasha? Are these roommates?”

“No… not exactly.”

“Okay then what? Don’t beat around the bush, Cergio. Tell me what’s going on.”




“I guess it’s time that I tell you the deal. Nina and Sasha are the mothers of my 2 daughters. They live here with me, my sister and godmother. You’re apart of my harem and it’s now complete with 3 witch females. You will have to stay here with me and bare my children along with Nina and Sasha. My children will be born with curse and have to be born and raise on this land until they are 18. My children must return to this land before sundown, that why I rushed to get back. We were pushing it. Not only will you be having my children but you’ll be pleasing me as well. I have an extreme high sex drive and it needs to be dealt. Don’t worry about threesomes unless you’re into that sort of thing. I have to have harem of lovers, I might was well make my lovers as my mothers as well. I haven’t told you that I’m a reincarnated Navox Genie God. A harem is required for my well being. Each female is required to bare me 6 children. No less or more.”



“What?! Are you serious?!”


“I can’t believe you! You want me to have your kids and be your sex slave?! I don’t think so! I thought we had something special! You seem like you were into me! I liked you, Cergio! How could you trick me into being apart of your twisted sex games?! I don’t want to have 6 kids with a man who makes with minds?! I want out! Take me back to my sister’s! Penny was right! There is something not right about you!”



“I can’t take you back. Not until you give birth to my son.”

“I’m not leaving my baby here!”

“Regs, you can’t take him from this land. He’ll be born with a curse.”

“How bad is this “curse”? Why should I listen to you!”

“It’s bad enough to have you killed by your own child. You don’t have to stay after the birth but I will have to remove your memory of us if you choose to leave.”

“Oh my god.. You cannot be serious.”

“I am. My father’s orders, if you leave, your memories stay.”



“You can’t- I don’t wanna be here.. Take me home…”

“This is your home. I want you to stay. I care about you.”

“How can you when you have 2 other lovers?”

“You’re all special to me in your own different ways. Especially you Regs, I knew there was something special about you when I first met you. Like I said, I will take care of you.”

“I just… This is… This is too much to take in.”

“I’ll let you settle in and think. But please stay with me. I don’t want to remove your memories of us.”




“I guess you’re the new girl. I’m Nina, Ada’s mother.”

“I’m Sasha, Francesca’s mother.”

“How can you 2 be okay with this?”

“Well Cer was up front about it… Well after he knocked us up. He told both of us the deal on the day we told him we were pregnant. I liked the idea of having a man take care of things for once. I was dragged out of my hometown by my boyfriend who was cheating on me with some teenager. I was depressed and met Cergio. I didn’t take any precaution and now we have Ada.”

“I wonder why he didn’t tell you right away. We thought you would know.”

“I didn’t! He asked me to come move in with him and I agreed like a fool! He said he cares about me and I’m special to him. Bullshit!”

“I know you ain’t gonna believe this but Cergio does.”

“I don’t believe it..”

“I’m sorry Regan but things are gonna get easier. You just need a few days to settle.”

“Thank you both but can I be alone now?”



Cergio’s POV


As predicted, Regan didn’t take it well. I let her be and hope she would come around to it. But in the meanwhile I have to get my annoying devil child to bed. Nina usually does it but Ada fights with her more lately. She always want me to read her a bedtime story. I really don’t want to but she won’t leave me alone if I don’t.



“What story are you gonna read to me tonight?”

“The one about the annoying girl who won’t go to bed so she gets eaten by a pterodactyl.”

“You told me that yesterday, daddy!”

“This one is the remix.”

“Okay, daddy.”



“Actually I’m gonna show you things that will happen if you touch boys, seeing how you are fond about blue boy.”

“I like Ender.”

“And that scares me. This is a picture of gonorrhea.”

“Eww that’s gross!”

“It gets better. This is herpes.”

“So if I touch Ender then I’ll get gonorrhea and herpes?”




“Yes. Don’t touch Blue boy, ever. In fact, don’t touch boys period. When you see  boy, run and think of gonorrhea.”



“Does momma have gonorrhea and herpes? You’re a boy and I saw her touch you.”

“No, I don’t carry the nasties cause I’m a god.”

“So what if the boy is a god? Then can I touch him?”

“No! No god-boys either.”

“If I can’t touch boys then can I touch girls?”

“Well… maybe after you turn 18 but no boys!”




“What now?!”

“I don’t want to be a lesbian.”

“Yes you do.”



“Daddy, can you do the puppy dance? Pretty please? I’ll stop being annoying if you do the puppy dance. It’s funny!”

“No, look at this picture of chlamydia. Boys will cause this.”

“Puppy dance, daddy!”









“Ugh! You promise to not by annoying if I did the puppy dance.”

“I love you.”

“I tolerate you too.”




Don’t get me wrong, I do love my daughters. I just have a difficult time on saying it…..




Ever since….
