Chapter 2.01 Cakey or Gooey?: Alyssa starts off her generation by throwing up in the winter and remembering her romantic adventures in sunny summery France with Matteo (even though not much sunshine was seen.) She goes off to meet Tallulah, thinking that her sickness was just from bad meat. Tallulah tells Alyssa that she’s moving to Bridgeport, and obviously Alyssa is upset. She begins to consider talking to Tyler again, and with Tallulah’s encouragement, she does and at home, she calls Tyler and he suggests they should meet for drinks. However, before she can go out and meet him, she finds out that she’s pregnant, and she decides against meeting him that night.
Chapter 2.02 Perfect Fake Family: Alyssa finally tells Rosie about her baby, and her older sister grills her over the fact that she’s still young and probably hasn’t thought it all through and how she wants her little sister to move in with her. Rosie asks about the father, which is when there’s a knock on the door and Tyler is there. Tyler pretends to be Alyssa’s boyfriend to impress/trick Rosie. Once she is gone, Alyssa and Tyler talk a little, and he agrees to stay with her for a little while, but she learns that he has a girlfriend.
Chapter 2.03 Beauty and the Bitch: Alyssa starts by calling Tallulah, who gives her a pep talk about managing to win over Tyler again. Both her and him spend the day together, much to her dismay. They build a snowman and then go to the winter festival. Alyssa then has a baby girl (name Belle) and Tyler’s girlfriend comes over, and she tells him that she doesn’t want him talking to Alyssa. Tyler tried to tell Alyssa of what his girlfriend said, but he just couldn’t. Alyssa signs up for online dating.
Chapter 2.04 Daughter Dearest: It’s Belle’s toddler birthday, and she explores around the house a little. Alyssa reminds herself of both what her brother and sister said, and she decides that even though people may judge her for being a single parent, she would rather spend time with Belle rather than finding some new guy. Belle, meanwhile, had found Erin’s music room, and had a go on the piano. Alyssa sees that someone had messaged her on the online dating site, but before she can respond, she heard a loud crash from Belle’s music playing. She goes to check her daughter is okay, unknowing that Belle’s music had attracted more than just the dog’s attention.
Chapter 2.05 Dolled Up: Alyssa has been talking to her mystery man (named Damon) and even has a date with him. She tried calling Tyler, but it just went straight to voicemail, and it is discovered that this is now the normal. Before she goes out on her date, she finds out that Belle has a fever and she called Damon to cancel. He then confessed that he was a werewolf, and she took it rather well. She then told him that she couldn’t make their date, but they rescheduled for an (old school) babysitting date (even though Belle is Alyssa’s.)
Chapter 2.06 Splash: Damon comes over, and Alyssa and him have their date. Because Alyssa promised Belle, they gave the toddler a bath (where she spend most of the time splashing around.) After Belle was put to bed, Alyssa and Damon talk a little, and just as he was about to go, she convinced him to stay the night.
Chapter 2.07 The Woman with the Blue Shoes: It’s Alyssa’s first day at work! When she’s there, she meets another woman called Phedra (who the storyteller stole from another legacy…) and the two of them have a general conversation. Alyssa starts to wonder about what she really aspires to be, after knowing that Phedra dreams of helping and saving the world via her many travels. However, when Alyssa gets home, she knows that she wants to be ‘Supermom’. Damon comes over to Alyssa’s and they have dinner, talking and then having an ‘adult sleepover’.
Chapter 2.08 Accident Prone: Just like in 7 chapters earlier, Alyssa finds herself throwing up over the toilet again. She wonders what it is, and it’s fairly obvious what it is. She goes to try and take a nap, but is interrupted by Damon calling and a knock at the door. She answers the door and it turns out to be Damon’s teenage daughter, Tawni. The two girls get off on the wrong foot (mostly by Tawni calling Alyssa ginger, then Alyssa denying it). Tawni then invites herself to join Alyssa and Belle at the park, where Alyssa wanted to spend the day with Belle. When Alyssa was away, Tawni talked Belle into playing a game called ‘egg hunt’. While Belle was distracted, Tawni walked away, then Belle went off to try and find Alyssa. Alyssa finds out that she’s pregnant.
Chapter 2.09 Where’s Belle(a)?: Alyssa finds out that Tawni managed to lose Belle. The two girls get into a small fight, before they try and find the toddler. Belle, meanwhile, is trying to find her mom in return, but there’s a bunch of mean adults saying horrible things to her. She manages to find someone who doesn’t immediately turn her away, and it turns out to be Tyler who’s out with his girlfriend Spirit. Alyssa finds Belle, and has a small talk with Tyler which is when she learns that Spirit told him to stay away from Alyssa. She’s hurt and walks away from him. Later, back at home, Alyssa tells Damon about her pregnancy and he’s happy about it. She starts to realize that maybe it was a good thing that she did cheat on Tyler when she was a teenager.
Chapter 2.10 Forgetful: Alyssa almost forgets that the baby’s new room used to be hers, and she can’t help but reminisce slightly. She has to go into work for a few hours, based on someone really wanted to talk to her about something. She goes in to meet whoever it was, and finds out that he wants her to help him with something. He introduces himself as Dr Newman, and that he needed her help with looking after some dragon eggs. He gives off an overall fairly shady impression, but Alyssa agrees to help anyway and he then says she can call him Adrian. After her hour or two back at work, she and Damon go out for dinner. It’s at a really fancy place, and she starts to suspect that there’s an ulterior motive behind it all. They had a nice dinner, and he proposed to her. She accepted it, after marvelling at how pretty the ring was.
Chapter 2.11 First Bad Steps: Rosie’s at the family house and is looking after Belle while Alyssa’s at the hospital having the baby. When she gets home, we find out that she’d had a boy called Ashton. Rosie notices her engagement ring, and starts to get excited and interrupts Alyssa as she was about to say that there was a surprise at the hospital. It turns out she had a boy and a girl. She called the girl Melody.
Alyssa soon realizes that the twins are a lot more difficult to look after than Belle was. She and Damon almost get into a big fight, before she excused herself so they wouldn’t. She had a nap, because she was tired, and she had a rather strange dream. In her dream, she sees Adrian and they’re both in his office. He makes a move on her, but she stops him because she doesn’t want to cheat. She caves, and ends up almost dream cheating (thinking that no one will know) but stops when he asks her to take off her ring (because it’s cold). Alyssa starts to feel the guilt of what she did, and even though it was only a dream, she felt bad. She swears that she’s going to try and forget what happened in the dream.
Chapter 2.12 The ‘S’ Word: There’s a flashback of Belle’s birthday, and her cousin Elvie (Rosie and Liam’s daughter) tells her that she can’t wait until they can go to school together. Belle thought her mom wouldn’t make her go to school, but it turns out she did have to go. Alyssa spends the day with her sister and sister-in-law (Sabrina) and they talk about things. It becomes apparent that Rosie and Sabrina think that it isn’t a good thing that Damon spends so much time with his daughter, especially if his ex-wife is around too.
Belle’s day at school meanwhile is rather boring. She’s sat next to a boy who hardly even talks to her, but he’s the brother of one of Elvie’s friends. The four of them hang out after school, but Elvie mostly hangs around with quiet boy’s brother, leaving Belle and Quiet boy alone. The two of them get to know each other, and actually become friends. He even kissed her just before she left! The twins have their birthday.
Chapter 2.13 Ice: Alyssa realizes that the twins have a special connection to Toby. She goes back to work, figuring Damon could look after the twins while she was there. Adrian then talks to her about a conference over in Bridgeport, where her dream wedding dress happens to be. She asks to go along, mostly because she wants to see the city, and not really for the conference. She goes to tell Damon the good news, and it turns out that he isn’t as thrilled. The two of them get in a fight, but Belle overhears and gets upset over it. She makes Alyssa and Damon stop fighting, and Alyssa takes Belle back to bed. She reads her a story, and Belle talks about her father a little. The chapter ends with Alyssa realizing that she definitely needed someone to help her with all three of her children, however she partially questions whether or not she truly does love Damon.
Chapter 2.14 Something Special: Alyssa goes off to Bridgeport, after saying goodbye to her children and a rather awkward goodbye to Damon. Adrian picks up that their goodbye seemed a little dry, and she merely points out that she wouldn’t be gone that long. (Even though she did want him to be at least a little bit bothered.) Once there, Alyssa goes off to the bridal boutique and meets a seemingly psychic sales woman (I stole her from here.) She tries on the dress, but soon gets a choking feeling from what she convinced herself was the dress being too tight, but was more like cold feet. She realizes that her and Damon shouldn’t get married if that was her reaction to simply trying on a dress.
Chapter 2.15 Interlude; The Ex and The Incident: Damon’s ex wife Vicky comes over to the family home, and it is learned that the two of them shared a mistaken kiss. He tells her that he’s with Alyssa, and Vicky soon leaves but not before saying that if he ever wants someone ‘more like him’ that she’s always there.
Chapter 2.16 Dancing Isn’t Cheating: Alyssa starts by rambling on to a half listening Adrian about what she thinks has gone wrong in her’s and Damon’s relationship and what would happen if she told him she wasn’t ready to get married. She suggests watching a movie, but he suggests going out dancing instead. She doesn’t know how to, so she’s doubtful but soon agrees to let him teach her in the ballroom upstairs. She starts to learn with his help, and realizes she can trust him and that she’s actually having fun. She confides in him that she had a suspicion that Damon has cheated on her, but thinks it may just be her being paranoid. As if to fight fire with fire, she cheats on him and sleeps with Adrian.
Chapter 2.17 Reflections of Actions: Alyssa’s upset and feels bad about something. It’s known that she wants to talk to someone. She doesn’t want to talk to Damon though, and it’s learned that she recently told him about Adrian and he left her. She doesn’t want to talk to Adrian either because a problem has risen in their ‘relationship’ which ended it quickly. It’s learned that she wanted to talk to Tyler, and she tells him that she cheated. He snapped at her telling her it’s the wrong thing, and she starts to cry. He tries to cheer her up by saying that Damon will forgive her and come back. She knows he won’t because of the problem in her’s and Adrian’s relationship which was an unplanned pregnancy. Alyssa tells Tyler all about Adrian, and asks about Spirit. He says that he’s broke up with Spirit because of her constant jealousy. Alyssa lets Tyler move in with her and to help out with Belle, Ashton and Melody.
Chapter 2.18 Successful Woman, Scarlet Woman: Alyssa wakes up to hear Ashton squealing. She doesn’t even think about what it could be about, and freaks out going into his room. She realizes it’s just Tyler taking care of him. She warns him lightly about how Belle might react to seeing him here, but he thinks it’s not all too much of a big deal. Little did he know, Belle was outside (after hearing him and Alyssa talk) and this time she’s ready to confront this stranger. She tells him that Alyssa’s hers, and that she doesn’t like him. Alyssa has a doctor’s appointment to go to and Tyler takes her. While there, she runs into Vicky. Vicky’s mean to Alyssa (by calling her a scarlet woman, mocking her and saying she spends most of her time having kids rather than working) and Alyssa also learns that Damon did cheat on her. Once back home, Alyssa considers swearing off all men, but Tyler convinces her not to swear off them all (also, he tells her he knows the baby’s a boy) and he cheers her up. She realizes that she really has missed him being around.
Chapter 2.19 Making Friends: Belle and Melody try to bond together, and after getting bored of just playing with the toys, Belle teaches Melody how to play Peek-a-Boo. The two of them get bored of that after a while, and Melody decides to go into Alyssa’s room where she’s currently napping. Melody wakes Alyssa up by jumping up on to the bed. After Alyssa tells her she’s not in the mood to play, Melody begins to question her about where babies come from. Alyssa answers the question the best that she can.
Meanwhile, downstairs Tyler tries to bond with Belle again. He sees that she’s reading a book (The Witches by Roald Dahl) that he read when he was about her age and he talks about it with her. After teasing her a little and almost making her believe that her Aunt Rosie was a witch like in the book, Belle gets along with him a little better. Alyssa interrupts their little bonding moment and tells Tyler that she’s in labor. He freaks out momentarily, then takes her to the hospital.
Chapter 2.20 Daydreamer: Belle catches a butterfly, and wants to show it to her mom but has to go to school. It’s learned that Sabrina talked to Alyssa about Tyler and the possibility of the two of them being together (like, together together *nudge nudge*). Alyssa denies it at first, but can’t help but think about it. She keeps thinking about it, especially when she goes out to the park with the twins and new baby Nathaniel. Melody and Ashton go on an adventure, and get stuck on the fountain edge. They manage to get down though. After a while of putting it off, she talks to him about what Sabrina said. He confesses that he likes her, and they kiss and give them a try again.
Chapter 2.21 Loonies in a Lift: In this chapter, it starts with Alyssa cooing over Nathaniel, and she admits that she doesn’t want to go into work, even though it’s only for an hour or two. It’s Nathaniel’s birthday too, so the family celebrated that (even though Ashton and Melody are more entertained by the new doll house.) Alyssa goes to work, and is thankful she didn’t run into Adrian, until she’s about to leave. He was in the lift, and not wanting to look stupid, she got in with him. The lift then breaks down, and Alyssa’s stuck in the lift with Adrian for a while. The two of the initially argue, but soon come to an agreement to just shut up and not talk to each other.
Adrian eventually breaks the pact by asking how she was and how the baby was. She tells him that it was a boy, she called him Nathaniel and that he looks a lot like him. She then talks a little bit about how she and Damon broke up and how she’s with Tyler now. She realized that Tyler doesn’t actually have any of his own kids.
They hear a dog barking, and realize that they’re on an actual floor so they can get out. The dog is an Alsatian and seeing as though her work is trying to give away all the animals there, Alyssa decides to keep her and calls her Maya.
Once home, Alyssa tells Tyler that she wants to talk about the possibility of the two of them having their own baby, and she realizes it’ll be a long conversation.
(Wow, this one is long)
Chapter 2.22 Discussion: In which, Tyler and Alyssa discuss having a baby (and even though I didn’t actually write it (silly Carrie)) they agree to start trying to have a baby of their own.
Chapter 2.23 Dress Up and Happiness: Alyssa takes a pregnancy test, but we learn from her desperateness that she’s had her fair share of negatives before and this current one turns out to be negative. She’s briefly upset over it, before she hears Melody calling her. It’s Melody’s and Ashton’s birthday, and afterwards when Melody wants Ashton to play dress up with her and Belle, he refuses. The two girls squabble over who’s going to be the bad guy, until they spot Nathaniel. They dress him up in a bear costume (while the two girls are princesses) and they start playing together. Melody starts talking and seemingly playing on her own, so the game is given up on.
Alyssa and Tyler spend a while outside, and she soon throws up over the side of the patio fence. (lovely, eh?) He asks her if the test was actually negative, and she confesses that she wasn’t 100% sure. She takes another test, and she gets the positive she wanted.
We then meet a new character, a fairy called Melancholia. She’s the Queen of the Fae, and it’s then known just how power desperate and sadistic she is. She has a plan to go after Rosie after what she did to Elli (an evil fairy that turned Rosie into a witch. Rosie then killed her when she was a teenager). Melancholia makes it known to her henchman that she plans to hurt Rosie’s family, specifically Alyssa, in a way to hurt Rosie more.
Chapter 2.24 Hide No Seek: It’s Belle teenage birthday! (*sniff* my baby Belle isn’t a baby anymore At school, Belle talks to her cousin Elvie (Rosie’s daughter) and Elvie confesses that Rosie’s been acting weird, and keeps having weird dreams. Belle soon spots her boyfriend, and Elvie walks off to go to class while Belle and her boyfriend (Axel) skip class to be together. They stay up in the deserted library, and she tells him that she wished to meet her dad for her birthday. He tells her that whatever she wants, he’ll be there for her.
Meanwhile back at the family home, Alyssa goes into the office, and finds an old message on the answering machine. It was from Matteo, saying that he wanted to meet their baby. Alyssa doesn’t know how to respond, so all she did was re-listen to it.
Chapter 2.25 Sweet Dreams: Alyssa shows Tyler the message Matteo left, and the two of them talk about it for a while before they agree that she was going to tell Belle soon. Speaking of her, she comes home almost as soon as they finish talking, and she goes into the study and asks if she can be taught how to drive, Alyssa starts by saying no, but Tyler interrupts and says he’ll take her out driving. Belle goes off happily, whereas Alyssa questions him on it. He says that she was going to ask them what they were doing in the study and why it looked as if Alyssa was blocking the phone.
Tyler takes Belle out on a driving lesson, and she asks him if he knew anything about her dad. He says that he didn’t (which is true, but he still leaves her not knowing that Alyssa cheated on him with Matteo all that time ago,)
Meanwhile, Alyssa’s looking around the baby’s room and she recalls how her and Tyler went a little over the top with all the stuffed toys. She feels rather uneasy about the fairy one in the crib though (the baby’s a girl so a fairy teddy actually makes sense.) Speaking of fairies, Melancholia appears behind her. She taunts her for a while, which obviously scares Alyssa because she hated fairies (Elli, the fairy that was bad to Rosie and kidnapped Alyssa, hence why Alyssa doesn’t like fairies). Melancholia makes Alyssa go unconscious/on a slippery slope towards grim’s door. Melancholia hears Tyler, then disappears.
Chapter 2.26 The Only One: Tyler reflects on his past with Alyssa (when they first met, when they had their first proper kiss, when they convinced Rosie that he was Belle’s dad) while in the hospital waiting room and he knows for sure that he wants a future with Alyssa, and that he really doesn’t want to say goodbye, ever. Rosie comes with all the kids in tow, and while Belle has the chance, she quizzes her aunt over her dad. Rosie said she didn’t know anything, but told Belle that she didn’t get her hair colour from her dad, but she got it from her grandmother (Erin, before she was blonde she was a brunette).
While getting a coffee (because he has no clue how long they’re going to be waiting) Tyler thinks a little more about his and Alyssa’s past, which is when a doctor comes up to him and tells him that Alyssa and their baby are alright. He doesn’t really listen to the doctor all too much and goes straight to Alyssa’s room. He also meets their daughter Juniper. Alyssa doesn’t really remember what happened, but she knows that it’s going to take a lot more to ever break her.
Chapter 2.27 A Gift: Melancholia isn’t happy because Alyssa survived (as did baby Juniper) which foiled her plan at the first steps. Her worm suggests to her that she lets it go for a while, which only leads to him getting frozen from the outside (not killing him, she still needs him to be scared of her.) She was watching the fire, when she got an idea. A new plan. She also realized she needed to give Juniper (or the youngest spawn as she refers the baby as.) a gift, as it’s social protocol.
Melancholia goes to the house, and gives Juniper the gift of sight (so she can see into the future.) Juniper gets upset, and Melancholia leaves before Alyssa comes into the room to see to Juniper.
Alyssa gets a bad feeling from the room. and is a little uneasy because of it. Tyler comes in too, and the two of them talk and Alyssa confesses that she’s rather upset about her adult birthday being soon (let alone that it’s Tyler’s the day after her’s) and the two of them joke around a little which cheers her up.
It’s Juniper’s birthday, and she turns out cute ❤
Chapter 2.28 Too Old For This: Alyssa has her adult birthday, and starts to feel old. In an attempt to feel young again, she decides to go out and have lowbrow fun like how she used to. She went out that night, which was filled with meeting new people, having drinks, swapping shoes, swinging around (and falling off (seductive, eh?)) a stripper pole, getting three piercings and a tattoo. She wakes up the next morning with no remembrance and has hazy memories of the shoe swapping and stripper pole incident and (even though she couldn’t remember getting it done) freaks out over the piercings she’s gained. She however does keep the nose stud (because Tyler likes it) and figures that she can just hide the tattoo.
She goes out to the bar later in an attempt to give the shoes back. Alyssa has a weird feeling that someone is watching her. She tries to ignore it, but it turns out it was Melancholia who was watching her, and grabs her and knocks her out via chloroform. Alyssa recognizes Melancholia’s voice and remembered what happened in Juniper’s room (in Chapter 2.25) but she can’t do anything before passing out.
Chapter 2.29 Fine. Just Fine: At the fair, Belle challenges the twins to a pie eating contest. She’s confident about winning, but it turns out Melody wins instead, and Belle throws up because she ate too fast. She realized that her boyfriend saw her (how fun) and asked her if she wants him to take her home. She quickly denies, not trusting herself to be alone with him. She gets upset over the thought of sex, but she knows that he would never pressure her. She felt like a bad girlfriend for denying it to him, but she’s really scared about having sex. She walks off and goes home before her boyfriend can say anything. Belle sits with Maya for a while, upset.
Alyssa wakes up in a cell, Melancholia in front of her. Melancholia says she has a surprise, and the fairy shape shifts into Alyssa. She says that she’s going to pretty much destroy Alyssa’s family, and there’s nothing Alyssa can do as she is locked up in a cage, a huge boulder covering the archway entrance.
Back at the fair, Juniper and Nathaniel are happy playing with their toys. It is noted that Nathaniel sees Tyler as his own dad. ‘Alyssa’ (the fake one) walks up to Tyler, and he can’t help but think that something has changed…
Chapter 2.30 Queen of the Birdies: Juniper is watching the pigeons, while at Rosie’s house and she is imagining life as Queen of the Birdies. She runs and tries to catch one, but they fly away and she lands on the floor. Her cousin Holly goes to find Alyssa.
Meanwhile, inside, Rosie and Sabrina are arguing over which parenting technique. ‘Alyssa’ agrees with Sabrina, mostly just to spite Rosie. Holly tells ‘Alyssa’ that Juniper is upset, but ‘Alyssa’ is less than concerned.
Juniper sees an image of the real Alyssa upset, and she gets confused and more upset over it. Tyler comes out, and is confused by Juniper’s questions of where Alyssa is. He figures out that Juniper is a clairvoyant, and tells her not to tell anyone outside of their family about it.
Meanwhile, inside and once Tyler is out of the room, Sabrina tells ‘Alyssa’ that she knew the two of them were going to get together, and she and Rosie assure her that everything she wants it going to happen, not knowing what ‘Alyssa”s intentions really are.
Melancholia (back as herself) taunts Alyssa and upsets her. The real Alyssa feels hopeless about everything that has happened.
Chapter 2.31 Sandcastles and Fish: Nathaniel has his birthday (yay him!) and he wants to go to the beach, despite the fact that it is Autumn. He asks ‘Alyssa’ and she tells him to just ask Belle. Belle takes Nathaniel to the beach, and he is first wary as there is someone there who he doesn’t know. Belle tells him to go and talk to the girl who was there. He does, and he learns that her name is Callie and that she likes things to be perfect. The two of them spend the day together, but she abruptly leaves once she knows what time is it.
Once home again, Belle considers the differences between her and her siblings as she walks into the study. She hears the message that was left by her dad, and gets angry over how her mom never told her.
Chapter 2.32 Nasty: Belle confronts ‘Alyssa’ over the message she found and calls her selfish, where ‘Alyssa’ tells Belle that she was an accident and that she never wanted her. Belle goes off and ends up in the music room where she cries. She gets angry, and is about to smash the guitar until ghost Erin stops her. Erin consoles Belle, and tells her that if she wants, the music room is all hers, and Belle takes advantage of her inheritance.
It’s the twins’ teen birthday, and they both end up cute.
Chapter 2.33 Princesses and Fairytales: Juniper has a nightmare, and goes to ask Belle for a story. Belle tells Juniper two stories, the first one being Sleeping Beauty, and the second Beauty and the Beast (if you wanna know who was who, look at the chapter 😉 )
Once Juniper gets tired again, Belle puts her back to bed. Meanwhile, downstairs and outside. Melancholia is talking to a teenage fairy called Faye. Faye turns out to be Melancholia’s daughter, and she tells her mother that she had a crush on Ashton, but she can’t talk to him and needs her mother’s help. Melancholia agrees, but for the offer she wanted her daughter’s voice. Faye accepts, thinking it’ll only be temporary but Melancholia takes her voice for good.
Melancholia, back as ‘Alyssa’ begins to consider maybe having another child, one that won’t go good like how Faye did. She remembers that Tyler is inside, and that he loves Alyssa (who Melancholia is pretending to be) and she gets an idea.
Chapter 2.34 The Diary: Juniper has a vision where she sees Belle cuddling a baby, and she goes off to see where she has hid it. She figures it might be a future little brother for her. Belle catches Juniper (who was rummaging around her room) and takes her back into her own room. Belle’s boyfriend is over and she tells him that her mom’s odd behavior has been bothering her, and she has her mom’s diary to try and work out why she’s being weird. Her boyfriend encourages her to look through it (but only the important parts).
Melody feels a little self conscious, and asks ‘Alyssa’ on what she thinks. Being the b!tch fake Alyssa is, she told Melody that she looked plain and flat which obviously upset her while Belle is flicking through the diary, and fings odd looking letters in the last entry.
Juniper tells her dad about the vision she had, and Tyler dismissed it and told her that sometimes some visions don’t come true and afterwards Faye puts her plan of trying to meet Ashton to use and uses a lure spell, but he ends up collapsing. Whoopsy daisy Faye.
Chapter 2.35 Notes and Pages: Juniper has aged up and she realizes that glasses suck. Ashton wakes up in Faye’s house, without remembering how he got there (because he passed out before). She tells (well, writes) a little about what happened, but not all of it yet. Belle goes over to Sabrina’s and Connor’s house because she remembered that Sabrina was good with historical things. Sabrina gets a little uncomfortable when Belle says that it was almost as if Sabrina lived back then (that links to this chapter when Sabrina first told Connor that she was immortal). Sabrina reads the letter, and tells Belle that it is a very old language like what Belle had thought, and that the context is rather disturbing,
Ashton and Faye talk more, and Faye tells Ashton about Melancholia’s plans, and that she knows where Alyssa is being kept, yet Ashton doesn’t really believe Faye.
Chapter 2.36 Identity Uncovered: Belle reads the diary entry, and she learns about Melancholia’s want for a child and what she has been doing to Alyssa. She confronts ‘Alyssa’ who then turns into Melancholia and Melancholia tells her to mind her own business.
She goes into the bedroom, and when Tyler comes in, ‘Alyssa’ tries to get her plan to work. It’s unsuccessful, (especially when he asked about their age and she just shrugged it off) and Tyler tells ‘Alyssa’ that he knows she isn’t real Alyssa. ‘Alyssa’ turns back into Melancholia and throws a hissy fit over how none of her plans are working and how the Matthews family seems to be immortal (like, unbeatable).
Real Alyssa gloats about it, and as vengeance, Melancholia turns Alyssa into a fairy (because y’know, why not?)
Chapter 2.37 Miss Miserable: The subject of prom is brought up, and Belle isn’t all so sure on whether or not she even wants to go. Her cousin Elvie convinces her to go and try on prom dresses with her and to invite Melody too. Melody mocks the idea lightly (along with Belle) but both of them go anyway, and despite Melody having a change of heart and liking the whole prom scene now, Belle is still against it. After a while, Melody and Elvie quiz Belle over whether or not she’s going to have sex on prom night. She gives a rather cryptic answer and hurries off to the changing room.
Meanwhile, Ashton is hanging out with Faye again, and she tells (writes him a note saying) that she knows where Alyssa is and that she can help get to her.
Belle falls in love with a dress and warms up to the idea of prom. When Melody and Belle get back home, they see that Faye is over at their house and they learn that there is a way to get Alyssa back home.
Chapter 2.38 Endgame Tactics: Rosie is muddled over why Alyssa wanted to talk to her so late, and she notices that her little sister is upset. Alyssa tells Rosie that her and Tyler have broken up. Rosie consoles Alyssa, but Rosie doesn’t know that Alyssa really isn’t Alyssa at all.
The real Alyssa is feeling rather useless being locked up in her cell, and she wonders about how long she’s even been there. She then hears her name, and realizes that it’s Tyler and he’s come to save her (yay) and as soon as she’s let out she hugs and kisses him for quite a while. Alyssa then recalls something that Melancholia said to her earlier about endgame tactics, specifically in the war, and she realizes that Rosie may be in trouble, and she borrows Tyler’s phone to call Rosie.
Rosie originally answers the phone rather rudely before realizing it was Alyssa on the phone (and was rather confused until Alyssa explained the situation.) ‘Alyssa’ turns back into Melancholia and tries to kill Rosie but then Rosie basically kicks the shit out of Melancholia.
Tyler and Alyssa meanwhile are trying to escape, but soon find themselves surrounded by fairies, and it turns out that the person leading the fairy army is Elli (evil Elli that turned Rosie into a witch and who Rosie then froze to ‘death’.)
Chapter 2.39 Too Many Fairies: Alyssa is very surprised to see Elli there, and Elli explains that magic can do a lot (like thaw and revive someone). Alyssa’s wings fade away, and Elli says that both her and Tyler will be dead soon because the fairy army would kill them. Tyler points out they don’t have anything to kill them with, and then Elli gives them guns. Elli is mean to Alyssa and then leaves. Alyssa and Tyler quickly come up with a plan to escape the fairy army, and they go through with it but Alyssa freezes part way through the plan and they just run out of the room.
They go into another room, and find a very pissed off Elli there and despite the two of them trying to defend themselves, she’s prepared to kill them before she has a random spasm attack and there’s Rosie standing behind her. Obviously, both Alyssa and Tyler are confused about why she’s there, and it turns out that a certain teleporter (Connor) helped her get to the castle, specifically where Elli was. Rosie and Connor have a good old fashioned argument before the four of them leave. Alyssa and Tyler are back outside the family house and for that moment, everything is happy.
Chapter 2.40 Prolonged Secrets: Nathaniel has his teen birthday, and Alyssa realizes how much she has missed out on. She decides that she should tell Belle about her father. Nathaniel meets up with Callie, and the main discussion between them seems to be about prom and whether or not they’ll go together.
Alyssa tells Belle about her dad, and mentions that she cheated on someone with her dad. Meanwhile, Melody asks Juniper if she can see into the future and tell her if she’ll have a date for prom. Juniper tells Melody that she can’t exactly see into the future and Melody storms off in a huff.
Alyssa tells Belle that the person she cheated on was Tyler, and Belle then asks about Nathaniel’s dad. Alyssa tells Belle that Nathaniel’s dad was her boss and that if Belle ever wanted to meet her dad, she would help whichever way she could.
Chapter 2.41 Prom: Someone rather special catches Melody’s eye, however there is the issue of his name which she doesn’t yet know. Belle however really dislikes the guy that has caught Melody’s eye, and lets slip his name (Alder Kahekili from Nirar’s legacy). Back at home, Belle discusses her plans on losing her virginity that night and has second thoughts but Melody convinces her to ‘live a little’
At prom, Faye’s rather uncomfortable with all the people she doesn’t really know. She tells Ashton that she’s partially researched prom, and warms up to the idea of being a normal teenager instead of fairy royalty (refrained from calling her a fairy princess because that makes her sound too five year old-ish)
Meanwhile, Melody meets a girl in the bathrooms called Sophie who is rather peed off that Melody is shooing for prom queen because she’s there with Alder. Melody calls it stupid, but kind of wants to win just so Sophie doesn’t.
Nathaniel and Callie have a conversation about their futures while dancing. Callie tells him that she can see him being something important like being a doctor and when he asks her what she wants to be, she admits that she really can’t picture herself doing anything, and almost confesses to a secret she’s been hiding from him.
Meanwhile, Belle and her boyfriend Axel have sneaked off from prom and went up to the roof. They dance and she gets bothered how they might not last if he goes away to Bridgeport on his music scholarship. He gives her a promise ring to promise that they’ll be together no matter what. They go back to her place and everything gets all hot and heavy between them. They almost have sex, but stop because neither of them have protection, but then caught up in the moment, they decide to risk it.
Chapter 2.42 Big Girls Don’t Cry: Belle’s feeling sick at school, and her cousin Elvie (Rosie’s daughter) comes to comfort her. She notices Belle isn’t wearing her promise ring, and Belle confesses that she thinks she might be pregnant, and that she broke up with Axel because she didn’t want to get in the way of everything he’s worked for. Elvie promises that she’ll always be there for Belle, even if her family strongly disapproves of what she did. Belle goes home early from school.
When she gets home, she goes straight to bed. A while later, Alyssa goes up to her room and has her own suspicions about Belle (being that she has gone through the same symptoms four times first hand.) Alyssa asks when Belle was going to tell her and Belle says she doesn’t know for sure yet.
Alyssa gets Belle a pregnancy test and drops it in front of the whole family that is downstairs. After almost giving Tyler a heart attack (if sims could even get them…) she tells him that it was for Belle. She goes upstairs and calms Belle down before she takes the test. It’s implied that it is positive as Alyssa says that she’s going to be a grandparent soon in the next scene.
Chapter 2.43 Something Special (Reprise): Alyssa tries to get Belle out of her moping post-breakup state, but to no avail. She meets Rosie and Sabrina out for coffee, and tells them about what happened with Belle. They talk about her, and eventually get on to the topic of Rosie’s engagement, and how, despite being engaged for a long time, she’s never got married and doesn’t want to. Rosie says that she did want to at one point, and even found the perfect dress, but she got turned off the idea when her first child came along. Alyssa gets an idea, and forces Rosie and Sabrina to come to a bridal boutique in an attempt to make Rosie want to get married. She also lies and says she’s engaged so all three of them can go in to one room. Rosie tries on her dress, and to Alyssa’s disappointment, she still doesn’t want a wedding. Alyssa tries on a dress (to keep up with the story of her being engaged) and she finds the perfect dress. On a whim, she buys it.
She shows Belle the dress she bought, even though her and Tyler aren’t engaged. Belle does a bit of meddling and hints to Tyler that Alyssa wants a wedding soon.
Chapter 2.44 Four Letter Word: Belle and Melody spend Friday night in, neither of them having anything better to do. Belle tells Melody that she knows that Tyler is going to propose to their mom. Melody gets a little upset at the thought of Belle moving out soon, and Belle replies that it’s for the best and asks Melody why she decided to spend the night in with her instead of going out. Melody explains her slight boy troubles, and Belle gets upset again over her breakup with Axel and Melody ends up comforting Belle.
Meanwhile, Alyssa and Tyler are out at a fancy restaurant for dinner, despite her being a little cautious over leaving Belle on her own. The two adults were having a nice time, before Alyssa saw Adrian, her ex and Nathaniel’s dad, with another woman.
Back at the house, Melody and Belle are as bored as ever. They can’t think of anything worthwhile to do, so they just lounged on her bed and spoke. Melody was about to tell Belle something, but she got distracted when Belle felt something strange and when she kept getting texts. Despite her protests, Belle told Melody to go and meet whoever it was texting her. After Melody left, Belle was almost certain she could hear music.
Alyssa wanted to know who the woman with Adrian was, and Tyler found out that the woman was his wife. Alyssa was more than angry at first, based on the fact Adrian basically left her on her own when she told him about Nathaniel, but her anger turned to guilt when she found out that Adrian was actually married when they had their affair.
At the house, Belle figured that the music was coming from the porch. She made her way from her bedroom and down to the back porch, where she saw Axel there, playing for her. She gets freaked out over the fact he isn’t freaking out over her pregnancy, but he tells her that her cousin already told him. He asked her if she wanted to get back together, and before she could answer, she went into labour.
Ashton and Faye went back to the house when Belle left, and he’s rather worried about Belle. She convinces him that she’ll be alright, and lets it be known that she has ideas about what their future would be like.
At the hospital, Alyssa feels rather useless over the fact that Belle was in pain and there was nothing she could do to make any of it any better but she feels a little bit better after Tyler comforts her slightly. She lets it be known that she knew that he was going to propose that night, and didn’t want to wait so he proposed to her and she said yes.
In another part of the hospital, Belle and Axel coo over their newborn son, and decide to call him Benji. It’s implied that they’re back together (they act all cuddly and kissy and coupley)
Melody runs into someone on her way home, her half sister Tawni.
Chapter 2.45 Eleventh Hour: Belle ages up to adult, and moves out of the family home (*cries*
My Alyssa’s baby Belle is all grown up!) Melody gets the “pleasure” of meeting her step-mother Vicky for the first time, the two don’t talk about much in particular but Melody’s curiosity over her dad grows as the scene ends. Alyssa goes to meet Rosie and Sabrina for coffee and to show off her engagement ring. Alyssa finds out that there’s a last minute cancellation at her dream wedding venue (Rosie was supposed to play for that wedding) and she asks Rosie to try and save the place while she talks to Tyler about it. She goes home and speaks to him about it, and after a bit of wondering whether or not they’ll have enough time to pull together a wedding, they decide to get married then.
Chapter 2.46 Plagued: Juniper comes home with a bad report card (oooh) and tries to hide it but to no use. Alyssa and Tyler see the report card and it is learned that Juniper’s teacher is his ex girlfriend; Spirit (the bitch he was dating nearer the start of this generation). Alyssa storms over to the school and gives Spirit a piece of her mind. Alyssa taunts her because she doesn’t have any kids, and Spirit mentions that at least she was married to which Alyssa mocks her by asking if her ex-husband was standing next to her. Tyler enters the classroom, and he manages to sort things out better. As Alyssa and Tyler leave. Spirit says “Now he is” meaning that she was saying that her and Tyler were once married. Juniper has her teenage birthday once the two of them are back home. Alyssa talks to Tyler about what Spirit says, hoping he would say it wasn’t true, but he admits that he was once married to Spirit,
Chapter 2.47 What Might Have Been: Alyssa and Tyler sleep separately for a while, to make their wedding night more special. She finds that she can’t sleep, and when she finally does, she wakes up in a different room, in her old wedding dress (the one she choked in) and learned she was seeing what it would be like if she did marry Damon (her ex fiancé). She learned that this version of her was as selfish as ever, and wasn’t a nice person. That version of her wasn’t as caring of her kids, was still cheating with Adrian, her sister hated her, and she just wasn’t the (kind-of) nice person she is now. After her nightmare, she went to see Tyler and spent the night with him again (well, up until five minutes to midnight so it didn’t cross into their wedding day).
Chapter 2.48 One Hundred: Alyssa and Tyler get married. That’s all you really need to know.
Chapter 2.49 The Calm: Alyssa and Tyler start off the chapter by her asking if he’s happy now he’s “made an honest woman of the town harlot” (her words, not mine (oh wait, my words)) while Melody is sulking over how she’s going to die alone and teases Juniper over how she caught the bouquet (by accident. Juniper didn’t want it), and then Melody sulks over how Belle was ignoring her to talk about pregnancy and baby things with their cousin. Juniper mentions something helpful and Melody storms off.
Ashton and Faye are up on the roof, and she muses over the difference between human weddings and fairy weddings. Meanwhile, Melody meets someone who works in the bar, and flirts with him slightly. She ends up getting his number, despite the fact he is an adult and she’s still a teenager.
Nathaniel comes to sit with Juniper, and mentions something about Callie’s father being abusive. Juniper assures him that everything ends happily for Callie, and she tells him that he ends up with a brunette (after his asking). Juniper then gets a vision of herself getting angry at Alyssa, and it bothers her. She takes seldom comfort from getting at least a slight idea of what happens to her.
Chapter 2.50 Spring Awakening: Melody starts off by skipping school to spend the day with her new adult boyfriend (whom she met last chapter) by lounging around at the pier area. Her plans are somewhat spoiled by Belle surprisingly turning up, but Melody and her boyfriend soon get away from Belle without her noticing either of them.
Faye’s over at the family house, and she somewhat watches Ashton as he studies for his exams. Soon enough, he gets distracted by Faye and he asks her to marry him. After a little talk on whether or not it’s too soon, she says yes to marrying him.
Melody had left her boyfriend and went over to see her step-mom, Vicky, and meet Tawni’s new baby. She soon learns the truth about what happened between her mom and her dad (Alyssa cheated on him). When she gets home, she confronts Alyssa about it, who is rather taken aback by her daughter’s sudden outrage (as Alyssa thought she would have the upper hand in the disagreement) the two of them argue and then Melody storms out.
Alyssa’s upset about how her past keeps coming around again and haunting her. Tyler sees she’s upset, and he suggests that maybe moving might be best so they can both be “ex-free”.
An upset Melody calls her boyfriend and stays the night at his place.
Chapter 2.51 Double Act: Melody realises that spending the night with your boyfriend and sleeping with him isn’t all it’s cracked up to be and him then dodging her calls made her feel even worse, and it made her feel cheap. Meanwhile, Alyssa’s at work and it worried about Melody because yet again she’s skipping school and Alyssa has no clue where she is. Despite people telling her not to look for Melody as it will only upset her more, she goes out and tries to find Melody. Luckily enough, she manages to find her.
In the middle of all this mayhem, Ashton and Faye get married (aww)
Alyssa and Melody have a mother-daughter moment, and Alyssa tells her side of what happened between her and Melody’s father (about how they rushed things because the twins came along and how she got cold feet and how Damon wasn’t there for her much and how he spent a lot more time with his other daughter Tawni). They both bad mouth Tawni and Vicky and then go home.
The twins have their birthdays (Melody’s still peeved that Ashton gets to go first) and they move out, so it’s just Nate and Junie in the family home now.
Chapter 2.52 See You Again: Alyssa starts this chapter by finally giving Adrian a piece of her mind and threatens to tell his wife about Nathaniel if he doesn’t write her a good resume for her new job in her new town. Thankfully, he agrees to write her one. All the previously flown birdies (meaning Belle, Ashton and Melody) come to say goodbye to the house and Rosie and Connor come over to say bye to their little sister.
Meanwhile, Juniper’s feeling rather out of sorts, and not just because of the fact that she’s leaving behind her childhood home. It’s because she’s not seen anything in a while.
Also, as Nathaniel says goodbye to Callie (childhood best friend), she kisses him and leaves him very confused.
As they arrive at their new house in Glendalough however, Juniper has a surge of visions that somewhat puts her off Glendalough and the future in general.
Chapter 2.53 New Kids on the Block: Juniper wakes up, and on the hunt for clothes to wear for school, she finds a note in the wardrobe that was left behind somehow addressed to her. School’s soon so she can’t yet wonder more about the note. She then meets her new neighbour, Ambrielle, who offers for her to hang around with her and her friends at lunch time. Meanwhile at school, Nathaniel meets his new ‘study buddy’ Kaylee, but he doesn’t pay all too much attention to her as he’s still partly pining over Callie and her not texting him at all. However, he eventually starts to talk to Kaylee.
Juniper meets all of Ambrielle’s friends, and it turns out Ambrielle mostly just invited Junie to join them in the hopes of setting up her friend Mia with Juniper. Mia and Juniper talk a little and get to know each other, and she invited her to play spin the bottle with them.
Afterwards, she then tracks down the person who left her that letter and is told more about her special ability to see into the future. She also learns that there’s a secret room behind the library full with clairvoyant-y things and such.
Chapter 2.54 Never Been Kissed: Juniper displeases Alyssa by adopting a stray cat. She then goes out to meet her friends and plays spin the bottle with them. However, she dashes out before it was her turn to kiss someone (Ted, who happens to be Brie’s boyfriend). Mia notices her ducking out, and goes outside to talk to her (and to smoke). They talk a little, starting with why Mia smokes and then about her ex girlfriend. Juniper then confesses why she really avoided playing spin the bottle: She’s never been kissed and she wanted her first kiss to actually mean something and for it to be perfect. Upon being asked what perfection is like, Juniper happens to describe pretty much where her and Mia are then. Mia kisses her because of that, partly to put Juniper’s mind at ease (she’s had her first kiss) and convincing her to come back inside.
Meanwhile, Nathaniel has Kaylee over and they’re on a study break and do so by watching TV and chatting.
During the game of spin the bottle. Juniper has kissed Ted twice, and when it’s the third time, she’s told either she has to makeout with him (which upsets Brie) or have the forfeit of dip dying her hair pink. She chose the forfeit and Ted helps her dye it, and then they makeout anyway, without the influence of the bottle.
Chapter 2.55 Teenage Kicks: Juniper has a premonition about her sister calling her something strange: Mrs Buckingham. It confuses her because she doesn’t know anyone with that last name. She heads off to school and at lunch time, Brie’s a little snarky to her because of what happened at spin the bottle, and the topic of why Juniper’s single comes up. Brie mentions something about people only liking her because of her money (after Juniper called her fat), but Mia defends Juniper by saying if anyone wanted to marry into money, they would go for the Buckinghams instead. Juniper asks about them, but doesn’t get all too far. She then excuses herself, saying that she has to work on a history project, when really she heads off to the unisex toilets. She waits for a while, and pretty soon, Ted joins her and they have another makeout session in the toilets without Brie knowing.
After school, Nathaniel and Kaylee are walking to his car, and she’s about to ask him out, when who should turn up but Callie? Nathaniel feels stuck between the two and that’s where that chapter ends.
Chapter 2.56 The Crystal Ball Scepticism: Nathaniel confides in his girl troubles with his little sister. Juniper offers to show him the future and see if that’ll help him make up his mind. He’s sceptical at first, but then she shows him the secret room and makes him promise not to tell Alyssa or Tyler. She takes him to the crystal ball, and he’s still sceptic until it works. She shows him a possible future with either Kaylee or Callie. It consists of him being a doctor, and him seeing his future daughter Winnie. The vision cuts out just before Nathaniel can see who he ends up with. Juniper asks a somewhat frustrated Nate who he wanted it to be. Before he has his birthday, he tells Callie that even though he’s liked her for a really long time (like, a really long time) he doesn’t like her that way anymore. He then ages up into an adult at home and after saying goodbye to the family, he goes to find Kaylee and asks her out. Back at home, Alyssa gets a phonecall and is told that Rosie’s passed away (frowny face)
Chapter 2.57 When September Ends: Alyssa and Tyler head off back home to Dragon Valley for Rosie’s funeral. Meanwhile, Juniper has Ted over and they hook up. After it, she can’t help but feel cheap. At the funeral, Alyssa talks to a now elder Connor, and she spends some time with one of Ashton’s twins: Rosalie. She’s slightly upset over the fact how she doesn’t have a toddler to coo over and fuss over and that all of her babies are all grown up. She tells Tyler that she thinks that the two of them should kidnap their granddaughter, but he deters her from the idea. He asks her what’s bothering her, and she talks about her dad’s funeral and how she feels guilty about what happened then.
Meanwhile in Glendalough, Juniper has Mia and Brie over for a sleepover where Brie and Juniper make up friends. Juniper didn’t realise how hurt Brie was as she has (correct) suspicions that Ted is cheating on her because she found an open box of condoms in his room with some missing, and they’ve never gone that far before. She then confides in Juniper that “a lot can be done with a needle”. After making friends, the girls go out before Alyssa and Tyler come home. When they get home, the door isn’t locked and when their darling daughter gets home, they find that she got her tongue and belly button pierced. Luckily though, they didn’t see the tattoo she also got done.
Chapter 2.58 There are Worse Things: Juniper and Alyssa start off by having an argument as Alyssa isn’t pleased with Juniper’s behaviour (ditching school, having a boy over, getting piercings and just all around misbehaving) and Junie gets herself grounded. When she goes back upstairs, Ted is there too and Juniper rants off about her mom slightly before stopping when she sees herself in the mirror. She’s been feeling tired and bloated, and as Ted notices “her cans are bigger”. At that moment, she remembers what Ambrielle said about poking a needle through all his condoms. Freaking out, Juniper finds the condom wrapper while Ted leaves her house. Upon finding it, Juniper sees that there’s a small hole in the wrapper (meaning it went through the condom inside) and Juniper fears that she’s pregnant.
At school, Juniper goes to the bathrooms to throw up (Mia following after her to make sure she’s okay). Mia asks her what’s wrong, and Juniper tells her that she thinks that she’s pregnant, but she says she did it with a stranger so neither Mia nor Brie will hate her for doing what she’s doing. Mia asks her what she’s going to do, and Juniper says that for now she’s going to go to the doctor and see where things go from there.
At the doctors, she has a vision of her telling off two toddlers which are arguing. Even though it isn’t a bad one, it still freaks her out to know that she could be a mom much sooner than she expected. When the receptionist called her name (well Mia’s name as she had used her name instead of her own as her brother works at the hospital). The receptionist says that Dr Matthews will be seeing her. After having what felt like a heart attack, the receptionist calls her Dr K Matthews, which Juniper figures out to probably be Kaylee. Juniper spies on Kaylee and the receptionist as they speak, and Kaylee mentions that her and Nathaniel aren’t married just yet, and when she goes on leave then maybe they can. As she begins to walk to her office, Juniper quickly goes there. When Juniper sees Kaylee, it’s obvious that Kaylee’s pregnant. Needless to say, both of them were shocked to see the other one.
Back at school, Mia (with Juniper’s permissions) tells their friends that Juniper thinks she might be pregnant. However, at the doctors office, Kaylee assures Juniper that she isn’t and that the symptoms are similar to PMS symptoms. The two of them have a little talk about how Juniper should try and be more careful, and wait until she finds someone she really likes and trusts before having sex with them. After her visit there, Ted calls her in a bit of a tizzy and he and Juniper break off whatever relationship they had.
Chapter 2.59 Girl’s Night: Juniper has a vision of herself with her future husband, and learns that she calls him ‘Sammy’ in it. She’s muddled over it because she felt the emotions that the adult her felt. Before getting in a tizz about it, she sneaks out of the house to meet Mia and Brie for a girls night out.
At the club, Brie announces how she and Ted have broken up. It’s also realised that Mia’s ex girlfriend Stephanie went over to her house as a drunken booty call. Juniper doesn’t know why, but she feels almost jealous about that. Before her and Mia get into an argument, the waitress comes over and hands Juniper a drink that a man from the bar bought her. After uming and ahing over it, she decides to drink it but it tastes weird. Mia and Brie head over to the bar and Mia thinks about advancing on the crush she’s had on Juniper for a while. When they look back over where they left Juniper, she wasn’t there.
The man who bought Juniper a drink helped her outside as the drink made Juniper feel really weird and sick and faint. While outside, the guy who bought her a drink makes his move on her, against Juniper’s will. It was clear what his evil intentions were, as he spiked the drink with something strange. Before long though, Mia comes to the rescue and beats up the guy. It doesn’t help how weird Juniper feels though as she ends up passing out on Mia.
Chapter 2.60 First Sight: Because of the brouhaha, Alyssa and Tyler have sent Juniper to private school, away from Mia and Brie, for her own good. Juniper responds to it by getting into a fight with another student and being colder towards her parents (especially her mom). She’s being made to talk to the guidance counsellor because of the incident, which she hates. Then, someone comes in, someone called Sam Buckingham. Instantly, Juniper gets butterflies at seeing him, and the two of them talk before the counsellor suggests that Sam could show Juniper around the school. The two teenagers talk a little, and he asks her out on a date to which she agrees. Back home, Alyssa’s startled that Juniper is acting rather sweet and pleasant. It soon fades though and Juniper’s back to being short with Alyssa.
Chapter 2.61 Girly Talks: Mia is over at Juniper’s house, seeing as though they don’t see each other at school, and she pries for information about Juniper’s new boyfriend (Sam). Juniper thinks about their first date, and it’s clear that she is full on head over heels in love with Sam. When Juniper mentions who she’s dating, Mia freaks out and tells her that Sam, and the Buckinghams in general, have a reputation for being murderers. Juniper doesn’t believe her.
Once Mia had left, Juniper went to her study where she learns that she can talk to ghosts. She and Erin (her grandmother, Alyssa’s mom) have a little conversation before Erin leaves again.
Chapter 2.62 Family Time: All the family comes over and their kids and Alyssa’s pleased about this. Melody’s nervous about being back at home as she’s lost her job, apartment and broke up once again with Alder, and wound up pregnant while currently sleeping on Belle’s couch. When she does tell everything to Alyssa, Alyssa suggests that she can move back in at home. Later, Juniper and Sam are on a date and having a lovely time, and then he wants to ask her something. Back at home, we learn that Sam asked Juniper to marry him as she admires her engagement ring.
Chapter 2.63 Revelations: Juniper turns to ghost Rosie and ghost Erin for advice on how to tell her parents that she’s engaged (she figured they would help because they were both engaged as teenagers also). They encourage her and tell her that they’ll probably be shocked at first, but then will end up being accepting of it. The topic ends up diverging on to how Melody is, and Juniper complains about how her sister makes her do basically everything for her. Speaking of the devil, Melody calls Juniper into her room to get Tinkerbear away from her. Juniper teases her with the cat and making her uncomfortable. Juniper says sorry after a while for annoying her, and changing the subject, Melody asks her why she isn’t hanging out with her boyfriend, and it’s pretty sad spending the night with her. Juniper says that she doesn’t mind as she never gets to see Melody anymore. Juniper then asks Melody about the baby’s father to which she’s cold and closed mouthed. Melody soon goes into labour and Juniper takes her to the hospital.
At the hospital, Juniper and her new niece, Chloe, start to bond as Melody sleeps. When Melody wakes up, Juniper has sussed out that Alder’s Chloe’s father, and Melody says how it still doesn’t matter because he isn’t involved. Melody then asks Juniper when she was going to announce that she’s engaged, and promises to keep it a secret for the meantime.
Meanwhile, we also see Sam’s true colours, and learn that he isn’t as good as Juniper believes him to be.
Chapter 2.64 Rather Unexpected: Juniper tells Alyssa and Tyler that she’s engaged and doesn’t want to go to university in one go. Obviously, it didn’t go marvellously and Alyssa almost lost her temper at her daughter. Once she got the chance, Juniper ducked out of the situation and let her parents talk about what she had just told them.
Meanwhile, her and Mia go to a bridal boutique to try on dresses, and after quite a bit of disagreement, the perfect dress was found, which was when Juniper then had a vision of her and Mia together, as in together together, and it implied that Sam was her ex. It confused her slightly, both in the way her visions usually do, and also with her feelings.
Chapter 2.65 Crumbling to Pieces: Alyssa and Juniper get into an argument about Juniper’s future (Alyssa wants her to go to college whereas Juniper wants to marry Sam), and it turns very, very ugly very quickly. They both say very hurtful and regrettable things. Juniper storms out and finds comfort in Mia, who agrees with Alyssa and doesn’t think that Juniper should be with Sam, but Juniper should be with her instead. Juniper rejects her though, and tries to find at least a little bit of sympathy from Sam. Luckily, he’s there for her and despite feeling unsure of getting married earlier, she knows that she’s doing the right thing when she’s with him again.
Chapter 2.66 What Fairytales are Made Of: Alyssa apologizes to Juniper over what she said the day before. In Juniper’s bridal suite a little later, Belle jokingly threatens to tell everyone about the embarrassing things Juniper did when she was little, to which Juniper gets a little grumpy over. Melody hints that she wanted to be maid of honour, and Juniper tells them that she and Mia had a fall out and she isn’t sure if Mia will show up. Mia does show up and asks Juniper that they just forget about what she said the day before, to which Juniper agrees to. Alyssa takes a picture of all her kids together, and Juniper gets a horrible feeling that they won’t always stay as close as what they are. Alyssa on the other hand, gets the feeling that life won’t be quite as dramatic for her anymore. Soon after that, they all head off to the church and Juniper gets married to Sam.
And that’s a wrap on generation 2, and seeing as though I feel as Alyssa is/was known for having quite a fair share of suitors, let’s see them all:
Okay, so going clockwise: Matteo (Belle’s father), Damon (Ashton’s and Melody’s father, Alyssa’s first relationship in the second chance thing), Tyler (Juniper’s father and the second relationship in the roll), and Adrian (Nathaniel’s father).
I really liked Alyssa, and it’s a shame to be letting her go, but I suppose I can’t keep writing her forever, can I? Juniper wants her turn, dammit!
L to R (I think, I’m bad at directions): Melody, Nathaniel, Juniper, Ashton, Belle.
