A Field of Dodders: Chapter 8, Special Delivery

I’ll never get use to this. Waddle around with a 20 pound bowling ball attached to my stomach. My back is always sore, my feet are always swollen and I ate everything in sight.  I can’t go through this one more time… This shit is tough and I don’t know how do women can do this, let alone have 100 of these. This is unnatural for a guy to go through this. I wonder how did my brother handle this. I know it had happen to him twice. I use to poke fun at him for it but I now see why he never found my jokes amusing.

 

 

 

“Ain’t this some shit!”

“What? What do you mean by that?”

“You got that baby in you and you a guy at that. Here I am all ready for a baby and you got one.”

I didn’t know how bothered Erica was with the pregnancy for the most part she had been very supportive. But I figure this was one of her personalities however her personalities never expressed their desire to have children. In fact I believe Erica once told me none of them wanted kids. I figure I should see what’s bothering Erica so much. 

“Erica.. Eeyonce.. who ever, you know what the deal is. It’s not like I wanted this. I’m sure you’ll find a guy who will love.. all of you.”

“I know.. but why you gotta get the 100 baby curse and not me?”

“It’s not like I wanted it. You would have 100 babies if it was you?”

“I wouldn’t mind having 100. I could pick up where mama left off. Mama wanted 100 babies but she stopped for whatever reason.”

“That’s insane for anyone willing to having 100 kids.”

“Borage and Cece’s daddy is trying. I think he’s kinda cute.”

“Their dad is a damn fool. Besides.. I know you’re not thinking about being one of his baby mamas.. You know that’s our siblings’ father. The family ties are already fucked on their side.”

 

 

 

“No, it hasn’t. Maybe he got a son who wanna give me a baby.”

“Having a kid with a half brother of theirs is still messed up.”

“Oh right.. Well.. You know what.. Lemme listen to the baby.”

I’m not sure why would she want to listen to the kid but I allowed her. It’s not like would be hurting anyone but if it helps her cope with this situation then I’m for it.

“He said it’s dark in there and you need to turn on a light.”

“Well.. it’s not possible.”

“Anything is possible, Dodder!”

“Well the kid will have to deal with the darkness until it’s time. Besides, how do you know the baby is a boy?”

“You can’t just leave my nephew in the dark! You better stick a flashlight up your ass so he can see! Besides, Twallan told me it’s a baby boy.”

“Ha ha ha. I’m not doing no such thing. Twallan? Who’s that?”

I wasn’t sure if I wanted to know the answer but I wonder if she’s right about to gender of the kid.

“The Mod God of course! Everyone know who he be. He runs this shit.”

“Yeah… Of course.”

 

 

 

As for Ty, she doesn’t seem like she’s enjoying how things are going. I usually find her moping around house. She doesn’t say much to me when I started to show. She felt the baby moved once and she started to get depressed since then. Maybe if she helps me break this curse then maybe things will get better for her and I. She seems to like hanging out for Erica a lot suddenly. Erica seems like she doesn’t mind and perhaps she needs a friend. But to be honest, Ty wouldn’t be a choice friend. I’m actually shocked that Erica or one her other personalities have punched Ty in the face yet.

 

 

 

“I notice you been sad a lot but you know this shit is all your fault. You can break that curse at anytime. You wanna make him suffer cause of some shit he had nothing to do with. You know that baby you had who was taken away wasn’t even his. He’s not a genie or witch. He’s daddy is a normal human and he’s just like him. You didn’t think I knew the truth but I know. I ran into an old friend of yours. Does Florita ring a bell? She told me about your son and how you convince your mom of how he was Dodder’s and how it was his fault why you went to jail. You didn’t show up for court for traffic violations and there was a warrant on your ass. Flo also said you are more than capable of breaking the curse. Stop feeding my brother bullshit and be real.”

 

 

 

“What you said is true.. But I love your brother and I figure this was the only way I could be with him. I was just so upset on how he just walked out on me like that. Then I learned about my mom’s illness and she doesn’t have much time left. I wanted her to have a chance to be a grandmother since my son was taken away. I feel awful putting him through this, he’s a good guy now. He’s changed so much and I feel nothing but guilt when I look at him. I’m in too deep to pull out and I don’t know what do to.”

 

 

 

“I know what you can do. Tell the truth! When you gonna do it? When he’s about to marry his second wife?”

“I don’t know.. Soon. After he has the baby I guess.”

“I say do it now and get some softer pavement on this court. I don’t have enough booty for this court. Maybe if my bro Borage donate some of his then I’ll have more padding. My ass is gonna be sore!”

 

 

 

“Erica.. what are you doing?”

“Those clothes were heavy, crushing my soul, my spirit and love. I must be free with the nature. My body is a beautiful temple and I shall show the world.”

“Um hey Elise, can you tell Erica to not tell Dodder about we what talked about. I should be the one to tell him.”

“Okay, I’ll let her know. Now come join me with nakedness and all.”

“Thanks Elise but I think I’ll pass this time. Maybe time next?”

“Great!”

 

 

 

I was about to head to the store for a little bit until I was hit with a sharp pain in my stomach. It felt like I had 2 clog dancers kick me in the stomach. I almost fell to the ground, doubling in pain but I fought to hold my ground. I am a man after all. I knew this was it. This baby was coming out. Yvonne said I would suffer with the pains of labor but delivery was easy. I tried to breathe with my pain but I found it difficult. How can a woman do this? Whoever said women are weak needs to be punched in the nose. Until they know what labor feels like, he’ll know for a fact women are not weak if they can take this. I felt like I was about to die.

 

 

 

“Dodder? What’s going on? Are you dying? WHAT IS HAPPENING TO YOU?!”

 

 

 

“WHAT TO YOUR CLOTHES?!”

 

 

 

“I DUNNO! I WAS WEARING THEM THEN POOF! THEY WERE GONE! MAYBE A CREEPY GNOME TOOK THEM?”

 

 

 

“Do you mind covering up? I’m not comfortable with this!”

 

 

 

 

“Erica, dear.. where are your clothes?!”

“Gnomes took them! What’s happening to my brother?”

“Gnomes? Don’t be silly. If you’re going to stay with Dodder then you must wear clothes. I can’t you walking about naked when the babies are born.”

“Is Dodder dying?! WHAT’S HAPPENING?!”

“It’s just a little labor, he’ll be fine honey.”

“MAKE IT STOP!”

 

 

 

Ty looked like she was in shock as she watch me be in labor with our child. It should have been the other way around. She knew this was coming and I don’t know why she acts like she wasn’t excepting this. Or maybe the reality of it hit her at once. I wanted to waddle over and slap some sense into her. But I was in too much pain to do so.

 

 

 

The pain stopped as quick as it began. My body was surrounded with rainbow colored sparkles and my stomach started to glow green like it once did months ago. In a blink of an eye, I found myself holding a baby boy in my arms. He let out a little cry and Yvonne quickly handed me a blanket. I wrapped him up and looked at him for a brief moment. I felt sick, I wanted to throw up. I didn’t feel the joy that most parents feel when they bring in a new life into the world.

 

 

 

I hated this child. I didn’t want anything to do with him. One night I found myself leaning over his crib with disgust in my face. I wasn’t sure why I was or what I wanted to do but i know I should hate this baby, it’s not his fault. But I can’t bring myself to love him..

 

 

 

He went nameless for a week until Ty came up with a name for him. Rhythm Tyree Montigo. She said he loved music so she named him Rhythm. I didn’t care what she named him, I just didn’t want to be around him for most of the time. I didn’t want to be around her either.

 

 

 

Rhythm was loved by his aunt. Erica adored him so much and was his main care taker when Ty was working or too tired. She was a natural when it comes to babies. I’ll admit I wasn’t too sure if Erica could handle a baby, but she does a great job with Rhythm.

 

 

 

Time flew by and he’s now happy 10 month old boy. Not sure how happy he’ll stay once his little brother or sister is born. I was often reminded that I needed to be pregnant again or I’ll start to age and gain weight. So yeah.. we are expecting again…

 

 

 

 

I took Rhythm on a walk with his stroller. It was a nice fall afternoon and I needed some air. i was felt with him cause Ty felt that I should bond with him. During our walk, I got a call from a number that I didn’t recognize. I answer anyway, I figure it was one of my idiot cousins.

“Hello.”

“Hi, is this Dodder?”

“Yeah, who is this?”

“I’m someone who can help you with your curse.”

“Oh yeah? How do you know about it?”

“I’ll explain later. Can you meet me at the park around 3:30?”

“Sure, but can I know who are you so I know who I’m looking for.”

“I’ll come to you. Don’t worry. I won’t bite.”

“I guess I can take your word for it.”

I looked at my phone and saw it’s about 1:20. I wonder who could to person be or how they knew me. I got a couple of hours to ponder about it.

A Field of Dodders: Chapter 7, Erica’s Secret

Some time had passed since my visit to Adaia Grove. I found myself making fast friends with the toilet weeks later. I still think about night with Remi and thought about making another trip there but the nausea was a bit too much for me to handle. I don’t see how the 100 baby moms wanna go through this all the time. I remember the herbs that Amenia gave to me and I gave it a try. It did help with the nausea some.

As for Ty and I, I mainly keep my distance from her. I’m in no mood to pretend we are a happy married couple awaiting the birth of our child. We don’t go to bed at the same time. Sometimes I stay up and wait for her to go to bed. Sometimes I just pass out on the couch.  

As my stomach grows I find myself in disbelief that this is really happening. I wonder if it’s true about what Remi’s sister said about being no other way. I then remember Ty’s plans. If she carries a genie baby, then her magic would be strong enough to break Yvonne’s spell. Question is how can she convince Borage to go for it given he’s still mourning the loss of his lady. There hasn’t been any talk about it lately. Ty has given me reasons in the past why I can’t take her word for it.

But I remember something. Years ago back in Riverview, Borage and I learned a fun way to make some money although we had money and didn’t have a dying need for it. I was still in high school and he was attending bartending school.  Borage wanted to personally pay his schooling while I just wanted extra. There was a Cryobank that paid a large amount of money for Navox Genie donations. There was a high demand for genie donations. The clinic ignored my age and took my donations along with Borage’s. Soon Borage became a regular visitor at the Cryobank. He talked about how he convince the female workers to give him a extra tug in the rooms. I’m pretty sure Borage filled that whole clinic with his genie donations. Perhaps we should give a call to the Cryobank in Riverview and request Borage’s donation.

 

 

 

I haven’t had much time to check on Erica lately. I’m mainly a shame to come out my room most of the time. She seems to be doing fine for the most part. I haven’t heard her have any freak outs with her personalities lately.

“You know why you ain’t got no man? It’s cause of that stank ass breath. No man wanna be kissing on you with yo breath be smelling like dog ass and onions. Girrrrrrl brush yo’ mouth!”

 

 

 

 

“So my brother is pregnant and my other brother has been pregnant but I haven’t been pregnant. How is my brothers are getting pregnant and I’m the one with a uterus! Do babies not like my uterus? I swear it’s clean. It’s not no other babies had been in there.”

 

 

 

 

“Your uterus is dirty and diseased and no man wanna put a baby in it! So face it! Your baby box will never be used! You are unlovable!”

 

 

 

 

 

“That’s not true! it can get dirty if no one has been there! You just wait! I’m gonna find a man who is gonna love me and put babies in me and LOVE it! If you bitches would go away long enough then I can get my boo thang finally! Just go away and die already!”

 

 

 

 

“If you think we are gonna go anywhere then you’re wrong! We are here to stay, sister! Get use to it! When your guys is fucking you, he’s fucking us too.”

 

 

 

 

“You fuckin’ bitches! I hate you all! Why did you bitches come in my life to fuck shit up?! I blame zombies! If my daddy wasn’t a zombie then you bitches wouldn’t be in my life! I hate zombies!”

 

 

 

 

Maybe I should of been keeping a eye on Erica more.  She seems to have more conflicts with her personalities more. Recently she mention about our dad. We did see much of him growing up. When we were about 7 or 8, Erica came running home in tears claiming to seeing our dad and how he was a zombie. At first I didn’t believe her but later that night we heard a noise outside. Our step dad went out to find out what it was and it was our dad. He was a zombie and it freaked Erica out. She hasn’t been the same since that night. Erica asked about our dad and wonder if his zombie curse had been broken.

I haven’t told Erica about our dad was shot killed years ago, a family was frighten by his zombie appearance and shot him. My grandmama told me the story of why he was a zombie. My dad had pissed off a witch, he broke her heart. She turned him into a frog and kept him in a well. He could only be turned back into a human by a kiss of a special genie. If a kiss from the special genie breaks his frog curse, he must fall in love with her or he will spend the rest of his days as a zombie. My dad was kissed by a married genie who was only interest in sex. My dad failed get her my mom to leave Max and he became a zombie. My grandmama felt it was best if Erica doesn’t know about the story. The curse also brought it’s self onto Erica as well. With my dad’s failure to completely break his curse, his youngest child would be cursed too. Failure to be loved. If Erica knew of this, she would hate him and go nuts. So we kept this secret from her.

 

 

 

 

“I can make magic food and you bitches can’t! You may be ruining life and blocking babies out of my uterus but I still one up you bitches with my genie magic! Suck on that whores!”

 

 

 

 

“This was a nice gesture of you Dodder, making us a meal today. Having cravings?”

“Yeah Dodder, I didn’t know you were a cook.”

“I’m kinda in no condition to be cooking. My back hurts all the time, my foot are swollen. Anyway, Erica made it.”

“Oh I see, I wasn’t aware she knew what a kitchen was.”

“Is this safe to eat?”

“Genie food is always perfect. It’s fine, really.”

“Very well then, Dodder. I forgot about you genies and your ability to summon food perfect food. I guess it’s nice to take a break from preparing meals myself.”

“I could get use to this. You genies are very convenient. In my history class were studying about the Genie trade and how they were used as slaves. I see why.”

“The Genie trade? That was always a touchy subject back in school.”

“Oh.. I’m sorry.”

“It’s fine.”

 

 

 

A Field of Dodders: Chapter 5, Transfer

 

I was getting ready to head to the bar for a drink.  Being a married man was surreal for me and I needed a drink. Ty had other things on her mind. She gave me a look without saying a word and I knew what that look meant. Then she whispers, “You only have 24 hours to conceive the first baby.” My blood began to boiled, it’s almost like these 2 are making up the rules as they go and just changing shit. It was really starting to piss me off. I was too tired to fight with her. I’m starting to think this whole thing was suppose to trick me into marrying Ty and then she’ll have my baby again. I think this whole “spell” is just bullshit.

 

 

 

 

I gave her what she wanted. It’s not like I really can get pregnant by a woman. I’m not buying their bullshit and figure I’ll go head and play their little games. Besides, Ty performs very well and I don’t mind the special attention she gives me. In a way, I kinda miss it,

 

 

 

 

 

I woke up in the middle of the night with sharp pains in my stomach. The pain started to get more intense to the point where I couldn’t lay in bed anymore.  I tried getting out of bed  but the pain was too great. I struggle for a few moments but finally manage to stand on my own.

 

 

 

 

 

I tried to make my way to the bathroom for some stomach meds but suddenly I notice a green glow coming from my stomach. I was stunned for a moment and wasn’t sure what to make of it. What’s was this glow? What was going on with me? The pain got more intense as my stomach glows more.  I held my stomach until the pain passes. I’m not sure how long the pain lasted but it suddenly stopped as soon as my stomach stop glowing.  I made my way to the bathroom and washed my face before returning to bed. I wanted to wake Ty and tell her about what just happen but I let her sleep. I’ll deal with this in morning. I was really tried and wanted to go back to sleep.

 

 

 

“Dear random person, I want to write you a love poem to show you that I am not crazy. My love for you burns like a thousands suns. When I see you my heart skips a beat. You are my ray sunshine on a sunny day. When you are gone, I miss you like the desert miss the rain.” 

 

 

 

 

Whoever you may be, this poem if for you. I like to do things in advance but I’m not crazy. Your dearest love, Elaine.

“I hear aliens outside again. I’m falling for for their trick. I’m busy writing poems! You can take me some other time!”

 

 

 

 

 

I skipped breakfast this morning. I thought what happen to me was due to Yvonne’s cooking but then again we all ate the same food. She probably put some witch magic in it that only affected me. Ty already left for work, I couldn’t tell her what had happen last night. I got dressed for the day and headed downstairs to the computer.

 

 

 

 

I wanted to do some researching online but I notice the spy program that Yvonne installed on the computer. I didn’t think a woman of her age could figure how to install such a program on a computer. It’s clear that she wants to keep tabs on my searches. I figure that I should get my own laptop so I can do as please without being watched. I guess for now, I’ll hit up my brother Borage in IM. The last I knew was his lady was murdered and he wasn’t doing too well. As I chatted with him I wasn’t sure if  Erica was around this morning. It’s getting harder to tell who’s out anymore. It’s almost like all of her personalities are running together.

 

 

 

 

“Come dance with me. You never dance with me anymore. Remember how we all use to dance? Remember those days? The good ol’ disco days? You use  to be all fun but now you just mope around or just study with that old dusty book.”

 

 

 

 

 

“I’m sorry Erica, if that’s you. Things are just different now. I’m just trying to figure things out. Like if this curse is even real. Some weird shit happen to me last night. And Borage says hi, by the way.”

 

 

 

 

 

“Don’t worry so much. Boys can’t have babies unless it’s by a alien. You don’t think Yvonne and Ty are aliens do you? Aliens that look like humans? Ask Borage about aliens. I bet he’s all super smart about aliens since he had butt babies. haven’t you notice he got a big ghetto booty since those butt babies? It’s strange cause we are more black than him and he got ass for days. He got a black girl booty and I’m jealous. Maybe I should have butt babies too.”

 

 

 

 

 

“Sometimes I wonder but no, they aren’t aliens. I just hope this curse isn’t real and they are just trolling me. And I never cared to notice how big our brother’s ass has gotten. That shit better not happen to me.”

“He got a juicy booty. You could use some.”

“Erica… please.”

“Just saying, He can donate me some booty. A sista need some!”

 

 

 

 

I returned back to the shop and was greeted by my new friend Larry. As many times as I’ve been there, we started to form a friendship. Larry has done everything in his power to help me. I later learned about him being a werewolf. I can’t say if I knew of any werewolves before Larry but he seems cool.

 

 

 

 

“Last night, I was having some pain in my stomach. It hurt like hell and when I got up, my stomach started to glow green. I wasn’t sure what that was but it suddenly went away after a few minutes. You have any idea of what that could be? This witch magic… it’s kinda hard to believe. I’m starting to think they are trolling me.”

 

 

 

 

“Sorry but you may not want to hear this but the curse is real and it appears it’s now active. The green glow, the baby just transfer into you.”

 

 

 

 

“No…. You can’t be serious… I didn’t think it was possible. I’m pregnant now? Ty and I just fucked last night and now there’s a baby in me?”

 

 

 

 

” I’m sorry but I’m serious. Witch magic is so tricky and hard to understand. They would be baby is automated transfer out of her and into you. It happens at the moment of conception. Conception usually happens within 72 hours but witch magic makes it instant. I had some new book arrive this morning, maybe one of them can be of some help.”

 

 

 

 

I didn’t like what Larry said. The green glow being the baby transferred into me. I didn’t want to believe it but I guess that could be to only explanation of last night. Hearing about the new books gave me some hope. Hopefully  I find something before another baby is put in me.

“So these new books, do you mind if I check them out?”

 

 

 

 

“Not at all, help yourself to our newest selections. If you have any questions, I’m here.”

 

 

 

 

 

I picked out a couple of booked and read them until I found something. I began creating a transfer elixir hoping that it would transfer the baby back into Ty.  I made sure that I followed the recipe word by word. I didn’t wanna fuck up and turn myself into a frog.

 

 

 

 

With the elixir mixed, without a thought I quickly drank it in hopes of this working. I didn’t want spend another second possibly pregnant.

 

 

 

 

 

I started to feel pain again before my stomach glowed green like it did last night. It last for few seconds. I didn’t feel anything different but I think it worked. For a moment I felt happy but suddenly the pain returned and my stomach glowed green. This time the pain was worse and I dropped to the ground. Larry rushed to my aid and the pain stopped. Larry looked at me and told me it did work but some how some, the baby returned back to me. I was confused, how.. why? Why did it backfired? I researched for another book before Larry told me there may be another solution.

A Field of Dodders: Chapter 4, Put a ring on it

My date with Ty at the summer fest went well.  We headed home and I find myself not caring that she followed me into my bedroom. I relaxed on the bed for a bit and Ty joined me without saying a word. I was a little curious if about what Ty said earlier. If we fucked I wouldn’t get pregnant just yet it.

 

 

 

“I would be safe if we were to fuck tonight, since were not married?”

“Pretty much, the curse doesn’t set in until we are bonded. You will be safe but not me.. If I wasn’t on the pill. It would be pointless of me to take it after we get married.”

“So you’re saying it’s safe now?”

“Yeah.. You are safe for now. So you want to or something?”

“Maybe.”

 

 

 

“What’s with the change of heart?”

“Maybe cause you been less of a bitch lately.”

“I’m trying to better myself you know.”

“I guess that’s good. You wouldn’t mind if I get you out of that dress.”

“I wouldn’t mind at all.”

 

 

 

I’m pretty sure Ty took this as a sign that I might be into her and accepting my pending fate but it’s anything but. I’m a love genie, a male and a brother who has needs that need to be dealt with. I haven’t had anytime to scroll for a hook ups and Ty was available. She’s sexy and all, I wouldn’t mind fucking her again but something tells me I should of been more clear about my feelings with her first.

 

 

 

“You know how I missed you, Dodder.”

“I know you do, can’t say I blame you.”

“You still have that big ego. Ha ha.”

“You know me.”

 

 

 

“I’m ready whenever you are ready.”

“I’m always ready but are you 100% sure that I won’t get knocked up?”

“Yes I’m sure about it. I’m a witch, I know how our spells work.”

“I’m not ready for any surprises just yet.”

“Trust me, no surprises just yet.”

 

 

 

We had a few rounds before falling asleep. I was pleased as well as her. I wonder if we woke up her mom or Erica. I couldn’t help but get Ty a little loud sometimes. That’s always been my specialty, getting ladies moaning the loudest they could. I figure in the morning I’ll tell Yvonne that I gave her daughter the ring.

 

 

 

“Good morning, Erica or whoever you decided to be today. Did you sleep well?”

“It’s me Erica. And no. It was hard to sleep when your daughter kept yelling out my brother’s name. Did you have to put my room next to his?”

“Oh I am sorry about that. I didn’t hear a thing, thank goodness.”

“Yeah cause you’re all old and can’t hear well. The whole town could hear them. “Oh Dodder. Oh Dodder. I miss that chocolate dick of yours.” Oh yeah, everyone could hear that!”

“There is a spare room you could sleep in whenever they are having a wild night.”

“But I like that bed.”

“Well I don’t know how to help you then.”

“Maybe stop being a evil hag and break the curse then we can leave.”

“You know you don’t have to stay here.”

“But.. I have to.”

 

 

 

“Hey sexy, wanna have a morning quickie before breakfast?”

“I would Ty, but maybe later.”

“I don’t get it. I thought maybe you were finally warming up to me.”

“Can a brother eat first? I gotta have some fuel in me if you wanna be done right.”

“I guess you have a point then.”

 

 

 

I got dressed and headed downstairs to joined Erica for breakfast. Tykisha haven’t came down and is probably sulking cause I wouldn’t fuck her this morning but I was starving and wasn’t in the mood to give her another dose of my chocolate magic. Besides I needed to check on Erica and her personalities. 

“Dodder.”

“Yeah?”

“Do girls always gotta remind you of what your name is?”

“Oh.. sorry about that. I turn females into screamers.”

“Do that away from my room next time or make her wear a muzzle. Ru Ru and I couldn’t sleep.”

 

 

 

 

“Umm, Erica? Who is Ru Ru? Is this a new personality of yours? Please tell me it’s not another personality that you created. You have enough.”

 

 

 

 

“Chill, negro! Ru Ru is my new dog. She can talk, I found her right before I got abducted by aliens last night.”

“You found a talking dog?”

“Yes! I named her Ru Ru and I like her. Can I keep her?”

“I dunno. I’ll talk to Yvonne about it.”

“I’m keeping the dog even if she say no. I’ll make the dog bite her old ass.”

“Erica..”

“What? No evil hag is gonna come between me and my new dog.”

 

 

 

 

I talked to Yvonne about letting Erica keep her new dog. I wasn’t sure about it at first but I figure Erica having a dog could possibly help her in a way.

“Hey Yvonne, Erica found a dog last night and I was wondering if it would be okay if she could keep it. I think her having a pet could help her with her issues.”

 

 

 

“Sure she can keep her dog. I agree with you, it could possibly help her. I also feel having a pet around would be good for the children. It will teach them responsibility. Also Ty told me that you gave her the ring last night. I guess we can move forward with the wedding this afternoon.” 

 

 

 

 

“Wait.. I have to marry her today? Can we wait? Maybe I wanted to invite some family to the wedding since it’s my first. I’m not ready to marry her now.”

 

 

 

 

“Don’t be silly, Dodder. You don’t have much time to waste, you only have 2 weeks left. There’s no way you can plan a wedding within 2 weeks. I know your family live far away from here. Why waste time in inviting them to a wedding that’s not going to last. I’m sure your family wouldn’t want attend 10 of your weddings.”

Yvonne was right, my family wouldn’t want to waste time in attending 10 weddings that wasn’t met to last long. But truth be told, I was just trying to buy more time. I had no idea that I had to marry her soon after giving her the ring.

 

 

 

 

“Dodder, can I keep Ru Ru? Did the hag say no?”

“Erica, I’m right here. I can hear you.”

“Yes, sis. You can keep the dog.”

“Oh so now you can hear now, evil lady.”

“Erica, I’ve been nothing but nice to you. I’m allowing you to stay with us and letting you keep the dog.”

“I know but I still think you’re a evil lady.”

 

 

 

 

“Listen up everyone. We have no time to waste. We have a wedding to set up for today.”

“Really mama? Today?”

“Yes Ty, we must move forwarded with the wedding. Today is a nice day for a backyard wedding.”

“Why can’t we do it tomorrow or later on?”

“Dodder, you wasted enough time already. The sooner, the better. Go get dressed. I will handle everything.”

“What do I do then?”

“Erica, you can spend some time with the dog before getting ready.”

 

 

 

 

“Seriously? We have to do this today?”

 

 

 

 

“I am serious about this. The wedding is happening today rather you like it or not. I can shave some days off if I must.”

 

 

 

 

“You don’t need to be such a bossy evil hag. Why force him into something he doesn’t want to do.”

“I had explained things to you about this Erica.”

“There’s this thing called “get over it”. You should try it some time.”

“If you want to stay, I suggest you change your tude towards me.”

“Whatever.”

 

 

 

I got dressed for doomsday. If I knew I was getting married the next day then I would of hold off fucking Ty last night. It appears she wasn’t aware of the wedding happening so soon but then again, I’m not sure. I must admit of how good I look in this outfit but I’m not ready for what’s waiting for me downstairs. I wonder if Ty had a wedding dress picked out since she knew this would happen at some point. I took a few hits from my flask before heading downstairs.

 

 

 

I met with Ty in the backyard. I was surprised how she wasn’t decked out in a nice wedding dress. She explained how her mother suggested that she don’t waste money on a wedding dress and save it for her real wedding. I know Ty sees this as a real wedding cause she claims to love me.

 

 

 

 

“C’mon guys! Not today! It’s my twin’s wedding day. I need one day without being cray cray!”

 

 

 

 

 

“No! I’m coming out today! You think I wanna be stuck in here with these losers? I wanna go con some people today. Damn it Elaine! Shut up! No conning on Dodder’s day! Wedding day? Am I singing? Girl I know I was booked for this event. No, Eeyonce! No ones wants to hear your bad singing. BITCH! I know you ain’t talking about my singing! Your singing sucks. Shut your cock sucker, Elaine! Heyyyy let’s not fight! Oh no one asked you, Elise!”

 

 

 

 

“Look you heffas need to chill out for today. I swear if you all ruin Dodder’s day… Whatcha gonna do Erica? Hmm? You can’t hurt us!”

 

 

 

 

“I’m gonna kill you bitches! Try it! Try it! I will! I hate you all! Even me? No not you Elise, I like you. Why you don’t like me? You’re a bitch Eeyonce! Shut up! Shut up! SHUT UP!”

 

 

 

 

“Finally… Peace. I hope no one saw that.”

 

 

 

 

The wedding went on as Yvonne planned. It’s hard to believe that I’m a married man for the first time. I know how happy Ty was after I placed her wedding ring on her finger. I wasn’t happy about this whole thing but I faked a smiled to put on a show. I wanted to take off running but my feet wouldn’t move. I knew if I did, something bad could happen to me if I left Ty at the alter. You would think a mother would love to see their child marry someone who they would have a lasting marriage with. I’m not sure if Yvonne knows about the feelings Ty have for me. If she was any kind of parent, she wouldn’t put Ty through this. It’s going to hurt Ty when I have to end this marriage. Yvonne is just a selfish bitch, she claims to care about others feelings but she doesn’t seem to care about Ty’s feelings.

 

 

 

 

After the ring exchange and saying our I dos, I sat down with Erica for cake. I wasn’t much of a fan of cake since that’s all that was available when I was a kid but Erica loves it and asked me to get a piece. I was a little hungry and grabbed a piece. I wasn’t sure where Ty wondered off to but I didn’t care. They only person I want to be around with now is my twin.

 

 

 

 

“Ru Ru, did you like the wedding’?”

“I guess it’s okay.”

“Yeah.. too bad my bro doesn’t want to marry her.”

“Why he do it?”

“A witch’s curse. He gotta marry 10 bitches and have 100 babies.”

“That’s some fucked up shit.”

“I know right.”

 

 

 

 

“Ru Ru?”

“Yea?”

“You think I’ll ever get married and have babies?”

“Nah girl unless that man is as cray cray as you.”

“I’m not crazy.”

“Girl, you talking to a dog who you think that it can talk. You is cray.”

“Whatever. Someday I will find true love or a baby daddy at least.”

“I hope you find love one day too. So how bout you find me a mate so I can get puppies.”

“Only when I get a man of my own. I don’t need you rubbing it in my face.”

“That’s never gonna happen.”

“Hey! I’m sexy, I can gets me a man, bitch!”

A Field of Dodders: Chapter 3, Promise

One of the benefits of living here was having a homemade meals made everyday. The food was good and Yvonne made sure that I was fed well. She tries to give the grandmother appeal on me than  being a evil bitch who placed a witch curse on me. I guess she wants me to like her but honestly I can’t stand her. I do enjoy the meals, it saves me the energy of summoning food or trying to cook myself. Cooking was never my strong point and some of us genies don’t bother to cook. Erica does, but my mama never cooked a day in her life. Mainly cause all there were  was cake galore. I hate cake but my brother seems to love it along with Erica.

 

 

 

Every morning was the same thing. Breakfast was made and ready for Erica and I, sometimes Tykisha if she came home from partying or had the day off from work.  Yvonne usually ate at the breakfast bar and I chose the table just to be away from her. I didn’t want her to think that I had accepted my fate. I still believe I can break this curse without giving birth to 100 babies. After breakfast I usually headed to the Elixir shop to do more research. Sometimes Erica came along, sometimes I couldn’t find her which always worries me. She would eventually pop up from no where thinking she was either a famous poet or Beyonce. Today was a bit different for me.

 

 

 

Yvonne wanted to talk to me this morning. I knew she wanted to talk about me marrying her daughter so I would start popping out babies. That’s the last thing I wanna do. I can wait it out if I wanted. It’s not like I had to do it right away anyway.  But that’s when learned I didn’t have time to wait around before having the first kid.

 

 

 

“You been staying here for about 2 weeks. I think it’s time you forwarded with my daughter on marrying her and producing the first child. Time doesn’t wait on you, Dodder.”

 

 

 

 

“And what do you mean by that? Yeah I know I gotta marry her and have babies but can’t I just adjust to things first? It’s not like I have to do it after away anyway.”

 

 

 

“I forgot to tell you that you only have a month to marry the female after meeting her or the curse will start slowly aging your appearance and weight would start slowly adding on. You already wasted 2 weeks doing who knows what. I think it’s time you take Tykisha on a little date and give her this ring.”

 

 

 

“Wait? I only have just a month before I have to marry them? It’s that a little too soon? I mean.. I just can’t jump into marriage and babies just like that without knowing them first. If I have to marry them for some time, I want to at least know them. This info would of been nice to know ahead of time.”

 

 

 

 

“I figure you would of married her by now instead of avoiding her. I know she can be a handful at times but she can be sweet. Also you don’t have a lot of time to hold out on making the next child after one is born. You have 6 months to be pregnant with the next child. After the 10th child is born, you have to end the marriage after the 1oth child’s 5th birthday. I will bring in the next female and you’ll have a month to marry her. After your 10th child with Tykisha, I will be giving you a fertility treatment to increase the chances of twins, triplets or even quads. More babies but less pregnancies.”

 

 

 

“I don’t like anything that you just said. Especially the fertility treatment part. My brother gave birth to 7 alien babies at once and that’s no walk in the park. One baby bothers me but quads? Really? I know it would mean less pregnancies but that’s too many damn babies at once. This whole thing is fucked up. I am a good guy in a way. I look after my twin sister. I have some good in me. I know I fucked up some lives in the past but I was trying to change for my sister. Doesn’t that count for something?”

 

 

 

“The hearts you’ve broken, the marriages you’ve ruined, the lives you’ve destroyed, I can’t ignore those. Yes you are doing well with your sister but this is a case of “a little too late”. What you’re doing now doesn’t count for the chaos you created in the past. You only cared about yourself and no one else. 4 women suffer the lost of miscarriage of your baby and was later told they couldn’t conceive again. And one woman had a stillborn child of yours. She took her life when her husband learned that stillborn baby wasn’t his and he left her. She reached out for you, but you slapped her hand away. That… I cannot ignore.”

 

 

 

I remember Olivia. She was a girl that I met at a club one night. She was newly married when I met her. I fucked her a few times before she told me she was pregnant. I figure it could be her husband’s so we left it at that. Some months later she said the baby boy was stillborn and it was mine. I didn’t believe her cause if that baby was mine, he wouldn’t be a stillborn. Navox genies don’t have stillbirths cause we are immortal. Olivia told me how her husband left her and she needed me but I didn’t believe her about the stillborn. It wasn’t long before I was told that she killed herself. Years later my mama told me there’s a chance of a Navox genie having a non genie child. She had a human child with Borage and Celsia’s dad and mention Borage had 2 human sons. I felt like a ass after learning that. My stillborn son didn’t carry my genie occult, that’s how it was possible for Olivia to have a stillborn. The same go the other ladies who miscarried my other children. They all didn’t carry my genie gene. Borage was lucky for his 2 human sons survived in their mother’s wombs.

I decided maybe I’ll take Tykisha the the summer fest, I figure Erica would like to go as well. I didn’t want to leave her alone with Yvonne or with her other personalities.

“Erica, wanna come to the summer fest with Tykisha and I?” 

 

 

 

“Erica? She ain’t here! I’m Eeyonce and I gotta practice for tonight’s show. I gotta get this dance right so leave me alone, random negro!”

 

 

 

 

“Eeyonce, I told you once before. I’m your brother and you don’t have a up coming show tonight.”

“I ain’t got no brother! Mama didn’t have no boys other than my sister Eolange.”

“You don’t have a sister named Eolange.”

“Do too!”

“Anyway Eeyonce, do you want to come or not?”

 

 

 

 

” I told you no, negro. I got a show tonight and I gotta get these moves down or my fans won’t love me!”

 

 

 

There was no point trying to convince that personality to come with us. That’s the one who annoys me the most. Eeyonce only comes out whenever a certain song is played, sometimes it could be a random song. I wonder if I could get rid of all the stereos so I don’t have to deal with Eeyonce ever again. I made my way to Tykisha to finally ask her on a date.

“The summer fest had started, wanna go with me?”

 

 

 

“Are you finally asking me out on a date? A real date?!”

 

 

 

 

“Yeah, a real date. I know how you been hinting about the summer fest so I figure we could go today unless you have other plans?”

 

 

 

“Of course I love to go. It’s my day off, let’s go. I want to go skating. I haven’t skated since I was a kid.”

“Hey you bitches coming to my show tonight?”

 

 

 

“I guess skating could be fun. I don’t think I ever been skating before. Mama was always too drunk to take us anywhere.”

 

 

 

 

It was a nice day for the summer fest. I was currently enjoying my view. Tykisha surprised me a bit today. She was actually kinda sweet and less bitchy than usually. I wonder what’s with the change and how long will it last.

 

 

 

We skated for a bit when we first got there. I suck at this whole skating thing but Tykisha was willing to teach me how to since she was kinda good at it.

 

 

 

After a hour or so I did start to get better at it but I really like skating behind Tykisha and following her lead. I had some time to admire her nice assets. I’m starting to remember how good she was in bed and I’m realizing it’s been a while since I last been laid. I’m really glad Tykisha chose to wear a short dress today.

 

 

 

 

Tykisha suggested on trying out the photo booth for a picture. I figure it would be okay. So far today has been fun but it was near sundown and I knew I had to give her the ring tonight since I have 2 more weeks left.

 

 

 

As the sunsets and the stars filled the sky, I suggest that we watched to stars. It’s something that I don’t usually do but it’s been a while since I last done it. The night sky was looking nice and I figure it was something Tykisha would like. It’s a date after all and I guess I could make this night memorable for her.

 

 

 

“Today has been fun, Dodder.”

“Yeah.”

“I told you that I’m not so bad.” 

“Yeah? But how long will this last?” 

“Forever if you’re good. I’m thinking you’re only doing this cause you have to. Ya know you have 2 weeks left.”

“I know but yeah I’m only doing this cause I have no choice do I?”

“Maybe we don’t have to end our marriage after the last kid.”

 

 

 

“You know that I have to. Your mom said so.”

“I know but I’m a witch too and I can find a way to undo my mother’s curse.”

“You would go against your own mother?”

“Only for you. I’m not okay with you having 100 babies. In way.. I want to be the one carrying our babies.”

“I rather the female does but you know how I feel about kids and marriage.”

“I’m hoping I could be the one to change your mind.”

“You can try but it’s unlikely.”

“Maybe after we are married, you would. But I wanna break the curse, Dodder. It’s just my magic isn’t strong yet.”

“Why do you want to break it and how can you make your magic stronger.”

“It’s cause I love you, Dodder. One way to make my magic stronger is to carry a child of a Navox genie like you. I can’t carry your child cause of the curse.”

 

 

 

“You had my first baby, how come your magic didn’t get stronger?”

“Cause he was born a witch. You have a brother right?”

“Yeah.. 3 brothers but only 2 are genies. Why?”

“They could help us if I have their baby.”

“Well Glad is a teenager and Borage’s lady just died a few months ago.” 

“I need one of them..”

“I doubt Borage would want to have another baby especially after his lost.”

“I guess I could wait some years but when you think Borage is fine, call him. He can help break this if I have his child.”

“I’ll see what I can do. But for now, he’s not going go for it.”

 

 

 

I wonder if what Tykisha said was true. Could her magic be strong enough if she has my brother’s child? I know Borage currently wouldn’t do anything with her since he just lost someone that he loved. But I wonder if he would help his brother out. The timing would be terrible to ask him to fuck my soon-to-be-wife. I guess we will have to wait for some years to go by.

 

 

 

 

The summer fest was about to close for the day and I figure I give Tykisha the ring. She acted like she didn’t know it was coming when I asked to marry her. I’m trying to change so I let her have her moment. She said that she loves me and I’ll let her have her moment. Maybe if I get some good karma going maybe the curse would wear off.

 

 

 

 

“It’s beautiful, Dodder. I love it!”

“I’m glad you like it.”

“It’s perfect! This day is perfect! I promise you that I will find a way to break this curse.”

 

 

 

 

A promise, could I believe this? Would she promise to help me break this? My gut feelings is saying no, it’s hard to trust witches cause they could be tricky. Maybe Ty is like me and trying to change. If she truly loves me then she would. However I’m not taking my chances and holding on to this promise. I’m still going to find my own way out.

 

 

 

 

“What’s that in the sky? Those lights are pretty. It looks like there’s a rave going on in the sky. If I had some glow sticks and X I would join the rave party.”

“You gonna get abducted.”

“No I’m not you stupid dog!”

“Dem aliens, they gonna take you.”

“No! It’s a rave in the sky. Hold up! You’re a dog! How are you talking? Am I going crazy?”

“Girl you been cray cray. Nah I can’t talk! Your mind is so fucked up that you believe that I’m talking when I’m just barking annoyingly.”

“You’re a stupid talking dog!”

“Child please! I’m just a dog. Woof, woof bitch!”

 

 

 

 

“Where am I going?”

“To space to get space fucked.”

“What?”

“Told ya, dems aliens up there and bout to get in dat ass. Hope you got your lube. Cause girrrrrl you gonna need it for reals!”

“I’m not gonna have butt sex with aliens!”

“Maybe. It don’t happen every time but you never know, girl. Have fun!”

 

 

 

 

“DODDER!! HELLLLLP! I DON’T WANNA HAVE ALIEN BUTT SEX! AND CAN WE GET A DOG?!”
