If you're a newcomer and interested in joining, then please make sure you check out the rules. You may also want to read the FAQ, introduce yourself and stop by the chat to meet some of our members. If you're still not quite sure where to start, then we have a great New Member's Guide with a lot of useful information about getting going. Don't hesitate to PM a member of staff (they have purple usernames) if you have any questions about SOTF and how to get started!

Let the games begin!

(Jasmine Reed continued from The Scarlet Garden.)

"I do trust you Kay. It's just..."

Jasmine smiled softly. She was certain about that, about trusting Kay, but there was a nibbling in the back of her head and it made her suddenly anxious. It probably had nothing at all to do with the operating table, or the surgical equipment. Probably. She couldn't just 'forget' that Caedyn sorta ditched her. Or was it Jasmine who ditched Caedyn? Ugh. Too much thinking not enough cuddling.

Jazz pressed her cheek into Kay's shoulder, her arms looped around her torso.

"You really scared the hell out of me the other day," she said, her voice cracking, "like, I know I should have stayed put, you were coming back, I get that. I seriously thought something must have happened to you! I didn't know what else to do."

She sighed. Her face nuzzled into the side of Kay's face. She kissed her cheek.

"But of course I trust you. I totally trust you, like, one-hundred percent! You just have to promise not to wander off like that again without at least telling me."

Gosh. She sounded like a mother scolding her child. Jasmine giggled, feeling a bit silly for sounding so serious!

"Never ever," she joked, punctuated with another kiss on Caedyn's cheek. "Nope. I'm sticking to you. Like glue, super glue! Hot glue!"

Ugh. Now she sounded like a clingy girlfriend. Forget it. Jasmine kissed Caedyn's cheek a third time. She hesitated, exhaled, hot breath washing over Caedyn's beige skin.

"... Hey Caedyn?" Jasmine spoke up. "You trust me too, right?"

Jasmine sat up. She rested on her elbow, looking at Caedyn with a pitying smile.

"You still wanted me even though I killed Joshua," she said. "I can't think of anyone else who would have done that. I mean, Nancy, maybe? But she's -- "

Oh. Right. Nancy. Her heart sank a little.

"Nnm." She huffed, squeezing her eyes shut. "You know I don't have a lot of friends Caedyn. People think I'm weird, so of course they're going to be suspicious of me. They might even think I wanted to kill Josh just because I'm the weird girl, that's what weird girls do."

Jasmine scratched her cheek with her pinkie. Thinking back on it, Min-ku - Jae seemed a lot more agreeable than Jasmine thought he was going to be. She didn't expect him to let her go like he did. She also did not expect him to call after them. And believe her, she heard every last syllable. It was like Jae was trying to mock Caedyn.

Or maybe Jae wasn't calling to Caedyn at all. Maybe he was trying to warn Jasmine.

...

"S-Sorry," Jasmine mumbled. "Ugh, I lost my train of thought."

She just. Flopped back onto Caedyn. Yeah. Jasmine grabbed Kay by the scruff of her shirt and kissed her, less cheeky and more bold than those butterfly cheek smooches she was trading before.

"I never want to hurt you either Kay. You've been so nice to me, even now. I don't even deserve any of it."

Jasmine smirked. "Oh shut up."

She could feel Kay's thumbs against her chest, real gentle and soothing, more affectionate than lustful. Jasmine liked it when Kay was affectionate. When they were first going out, Jasmine seriously thought Kay was only dating her because it was 'easy'. Jasmine never had a boyfriend or a girlfriend before that point, and of course she knew Caedyn's reputation. They were physical more often than not in those first few weeks, but soon enough she understood what Caedyn was looking for in a relationship and it wasn't sex. Well. Sex played a part in their relationship, yeah. They were teenagers, there was no getting around that. But it wasn't a necessity. Not for Caedyn, certainly. Some days they were all over each other, other days they barely touched. It was weird, but the good kind of weird, not the bad, creepy weird.

She knew Caedyn was not perfect. She knew Caedyn wasn't well liked. She knew Caedyn said some mean crap to people in their class. She knew Caedyn fucked boys on the downlow, and she also knew Caedyn was kind of a spiteful bitch to anyone who was not Jasmine...

And okay. Maybe Jasmine didn't understand the whole furry thing? But then again Jazz gushed over gay anime boys and cute anime girls so, like, they both were into weird shit.

But hey. You know what made up for all of that?

Everything else. Jasmine could not describe it. It was the way Caedyn's behavior changed when she was with Jasmine. The rare moments when Kay tried to impress Jazz. It was the twinkle in her eye when Jasmine did something she deemed 'cute'. And the static shock whenever their lips touched...

Of course she understood that Caedyn was a hell of a liar. Maybe it was Jasmine's naivety talking but Kay didn't lie to her. Jasmine didn't give Caedyn any reason to lie, and any secrets Kay may have been keeping from her mattered so little for her!

Jasmine flipped her hair over her shoulders. She lost her hairband days before but she still had the clip that kept the fringe out of her face. She smiled again. People told her she had a pretty smile but she never really believed them.

It was silent in the laboratory. Jasmine took the opportunity to slip her arms around Caedyn's waist, hands dipping between the small of Kay's back, hooking a thumb into one of her belt loops. She tucked her head, tilted in, nuzzling into the side of her girlfriends neck. Then she caught a patch of skin between her lips and suckled. Caedyn wasn't going to mind wearing a hickey, right? Right.

"I love you."

... for a second Jasmine honestly thought Caedyn wasn't going to say it. What little of a smile evaporated from her lips. She stared into Caedyn's eyes, watching her face closely. Then Caedyn said what she wanted to hear and everything was alright then. Everything was alright. Everything was going to be alright. Jasmine smiled. She felt Caedyn's hand on the back of her neck.

Yes. That definitely was a thing.

"Heh." Jasmine kissed Caedyn again. Then she dipped her head into the crook of Kay's neck, hiding her face from view. Then she let out a deep, heavy sigh. She swallowed. "... That makes me so happy to hear you say that."

(Jasmine Reed continue in Love Runs Out.)
