In Another Life...

Season One Finale
"There's no point in living in an alternate reality. -Jessica Cutler"
"What are you thinking about?" 

"Nothing, just wondering what I did right." 

"Well, you proposed to me instead of those skanky girls you met in college, for one." Kyle laughed at her clever quip. Even though she ditched the "goth look", Jia still had the same dry wit that he learned to love when they were teens.
"Well, if you want to be smart about it, I could always say that you did well in marrying me instead of those jerks you used to woo..." Kyle retaliated. She just chuckled.

"You're pretty cocky, you know that?"
She leaned in to kiss him, while enjoying every second of it. She thought she would never settle down, but here she is, about to become Mrs. Jia Kai Lin-Dillard (because she was too stubborn to get rid of her old last name). He understood her, and he didn't smother her. She knew this was the man she was meant to be with.

 They had a private wedding ceremony nearby the coastline, because they both wanted something low-key. Jia was raised in the lap of luxury, and although the glitz and glamour was nice, she enjoyed simplicity. Kyle just didn't want to waste money, much like his frugal father.

The next few months were absolute bliss for the happy couple.

However, that bliss soon turned into a fright when Jia became mysteriously ill. It started innocently with slight nausea, but soon she found herself practically bedridden; the only time she got up was to rush to the bathroom and vomit.
Kyle was concerned, but Jia refused to see a doctor. She believed that if she tried ancient Sim Shang herbal recipes, her illness would subside. The herbal teas only made her sicker however, and she appeared to be standing on her last legs. Kyle made sure to spend every moment he could with her, but she noticed when he occasionally had to leave the room and cry. Or paint. She was never sure of which.

One day, Kyle found her in the bathroom, looking as radiant as ever. She had a huge grin on her face.

"What's up?" he questioned, wondering why Jia wasn't lying down. She turned around and faced him with tears welling up in her eyes. He immediately began to panic. Why was she crying? Was she really dying? No, if she were dying, she wouldn't look so alive... he thought to himself. She walked towards him slowly, and cupped his face with her hands. "Kyle, sweetheart.."

"...I'm pregnant."

He woke up in a cold sweat, wondering what just happened. He was in bed, and his alarm clock just went off. Had he been dreaming? If that was a dream, it was a pretty realistic one. No, he hadn't been dreaming. He couldn't have been. Jia's death was a dream...the life he had with her was real. He turned to the other side of the bed.

No one was there.
The End


  1. I had to read the last couple of posts to remember what had happened last -- and I'm glad I did!

    And now, I'm left wondering -- which was the dream?! Poor Kyle... Left so heartbroken and confused! Ach! Him and Bradley need to meet up and have a few drinks. ;)

    Kyle and Jia look so sweet together. :( I hope... I hope... Aaaaaah, I'm just gonna have to be patient and see what happens next.

    Are you going to be starting up Generation 2 soon, or do you think you'll wait a bit before doing that? I look forward to it. :D

  2. Glad you enjoyed it! :D

    Kyle and Bradley should definitely meet up for some drinks, they've both been unlucky in their high school relationships to say the least. me an idea...*downloads Bradley*

    I know :( I almost welled up during the wedding ceremony because I knew what would happen next. Oh well, whatever doesn't kill him will make him stronger.

    Generation 2 will definitely be starting up soon, hopefully. If not this month, then definitely next month. Depends on how long it'll take me to get the plot together. Thank God for NotePad, it's been my saving grace for random story ideas I've been getting lately. :)

  3. That was lovely ending and I can't wait to read more!

  4. Thank you! Can't wait to write more. :)

  5. That was just great Cheezy. Sorry it took me so long to get here.
    I'm heading for the next one now. :)

  6. Oh what a dream...or was it? Very suspenseful Cheezy. I am also left wondering which was the dream. ;)

    Looking forward to your next update!

  7. Thank you! :)

    The next update will be here somewhat soon...just working on the plot and the world that it will be "filmed" in. I promise it won't be more than a month though, so it might be an early Christmas present? ;)

  8. Awww, poor Kyle. What a nasty reality after a lovely dream. I had to go back because I had forgotten what had sad that Jira is dead and Kyle was blamed for it.

    Keep up the writing!
