*A/N: Sorry for throwing these chapters out so fast. I am a Sims game fanatic and my step-sister has it right now and we had to put my computer into factory default so...no game. I've been bored so I've been in a writting frenzy. Sorry for jabbering away about stupid shit like that. This chapter may seem boring and I am sorry. Still please comment and like and critique!*
Melody came over the next day and she decided that we are going to get tattoos.
"We are eighteen, we can go get one!" Melody said and I shook my
"Is tattoo parlors even open on Sundays? My parents are coming
home today anyways, I want to surprise them with Nick," I said
and she gave me a lost puppy look.
"They are not going to be here till like five this afternoon and
yes, they are open on Sundays. There is one Zeke goes to that is
seven blocks away from here. Pretty please, can we get tattoos? I
want to get a sun on my neck. I rolled my eyes and sighed.
"I guess we can, who's paying?" Before she could answer my
question, she squealed in delight and tackled me on my bed.
"This is going to be so awesome! Oh yeah, Zeke gave me five
hundred dollars, so we can get a two hundred and fifty dollar
tattoo!" Melody said and I smiled and got in her car. I text Nick
and told him about what I am about to do and he text me: As long
its not my name or a naked man, I am okay with it! Love you so
much baby! Melody pulled into the tattoo parlor, which is called
"Blue Ink" and my adrenaline began to rush. I never thought I
would get a tattoo. This is so exciting! We walked in and we
began to look through the flash cards of tattoo designs and I
found the perfect one. I found a beautiful picture of a phoenix.
I remembered from my English class that a phoenix dies and
becomes ash. When it rises from the ash, its beautiful and young
again. I think of myself as a phoenix, I "died" as a whore and a
drug addict and an alcoholic and then when I decided to be good,
I rose from the "ashes" and became young and vibrant and
beautiful. A phoenix is a beautiful red and orange bird with
long, vibrant feathers and the perfect spot for it is my upper
"I'm getting this, Melody, on my arm," I said pointing the
picture out to her and she smiled.
"That's a pretty bird! I found mine," Melody said and she pointed
out a unique-looking picture of two suns. One was rising over a
beautiful cloud and another one is underneath it and it a
"It's a sunrise and a sunset on one cloud. My 'sunset' is when I
was whoring around and doing bad shit, you know? My 'sunrise' is
when I also quit doing that shit and when I met Zeke. That's why
I want it, and I want it between my shoulder blades," Melody said
and I smiled. She is also getting a symbol of her life, the bad
and the good. I didn't know that Zeke made such a impact on her
life like that. We went to the front desk with our pictures in
our hands and we signed the consent and paid for it. We lucked
out and had only twenty bucks left. My tattoo was the most
expensive being two hundred and fifty dollars, due to the intense
design of the feathers and the color.
"Who wants me to tattoo them? My wife will do the other one,"
Tank the tattoo artist asked. He has teal colored hair, eyes to
match his hair, highly muscular and heavily tattooed. His wife,
which has bright pink hair and beautiful brown eyes, came out and
smiled. Melody took Tank and me and his wife went to the other
"Hello, my name is Sam, what's your name?" Sam said in a calming
"Stephanie, and this is my first tattoo," I said and she
"My first one was on my arm as well." She showed me a beautiful
flower design on her arm and then smiled. "Tank done it for me,
that's when I fell in love with him."
"I got a fiancé, his name is Nick. He wants a tribal design on
his arm, but not yet," I said and I feel my nerves building up
and I know she can tell I am nervous because I am talking
WAYYYYYY too much. She touched my hand and she smiled at
"What relaxes you, Stephanie?" she asked me. She let me think by
setting up her station with the colors, the needles and the gun
"I love smelling pretty things, that's what relaxes me," I said
and she got up and left the room for a few moments. She came in
with several candles and placed them on the table beside me and
lit them up. It only took a few minutes and I smelled roses,
lavender and orchids and it really relaxed me.
"Ready honey?" Sam asked me and I nodded. I jumped when I heard
the buzz from the tattoo gun and then, I felt the burning of the
needle. It really hurt, but the wanting of this tattoo made me
fight through it. About a hour and a half later, the outline is
"Go see the outline and I'll let you have a smoking break, I sure
need one!" Sam said and I stood up and went to the mirror outside
the room. Melody is also inspecting her outline and it was so
pretty without the color. She moved to the side and I looked at
my tattoo and I am shocked. It is beautiful! The tail feathers
wrapped around my arm to my elbow and the head is just below my
"Wow, I like your tattoo missy. You did a good job, baby!" Tank
said as he wrapped his arms around his wife and kissed her. Tank
and Sam may look like an odd couple with their unique hair color
and a thousand tattoos, but I can tell they loved each other. He
has to be good in bed also! All four of us went outside and my
arm was sore from the tattoo, so Sam lit my cigarette for
"So, Melody, do you have a man?" Sam asked her.
"Yes, his name is Zeke and I love him to death. I just moved in
with him last night. I am loving the freedom already!" Melody
said and I laughed.
"Yeah, he just handed you the money for these tattoos and hoped
you would spend it on tattoos!" I said and she giggled.
"He trusts me with his money!" I laughed and inhaled my cigarette
and Sam and Tank is kissing each other, and I have to admit, it
just looks down right adorable.
"How long you two been together?" I asked taking another puff of
"We only been married for four months now, but we been together
for three years," Sam said and touched Tank's lips and he nibbled
on her finger.
"How old are you?" Melody asking, reading my mind. I recalled Sam
saying how she met Tank giving her first tattoo.
"I am twenty-one years old and Tank here is twenty-seven," Sam
said and Tank kissed her. "Everybody thinks we are an odd couple,
and I like it that way. If you don't like us, then don't fucking
look at us!" she added and I agreed. I liked Sam, I can see us
hanging with each other in the near future. We all went back in a
went back to our rooms. An hour and a half later, my tattoo is
finished. The coloring hurt worse than the outline! I actually
started to cry, but I bit my lip because I don't want a half ass
tattoo! Melody and I met at the same mirror and we adored our
"Oh my God, I love it!" Melody said about her tattoo.
"I cannot believe how bright the colors are!" I said about my
tattoo. I love the red and the orange of my tattoo and I cannot
stop staring at it. Sam actually gave me her cell phone number
for us to actually hang out and we left the tattoo parlor,
satisfied as hell!
Mom and Dad came home around five that afternoon. Nick showed up about five minutes after then and I text him to wait outside.
"I missed you pumpkin!" Mom said and hugged me tight and she
touched my tattoo and I flinched because it starting to hurt now.
"What is wrong honey?" she asked and I showed her my new
"Shit Stephanie, that looks expensive! Who paid for it?" My
step-dad, Rick, said.
"Melody's boyfriend," I said and they smiled.
"Well, I adore it, I love birds!" My mom said and she looked at
it some more and Nick rang the door bell. "Who could that be?" My
mom said and I went to the door and opened it. Nick immediately
grabbed my hand and he kissed me lightly. Mom looked like she is
going to pass out and Rick looked shocked.
"Nick, how….you we're…" Rick tried to talk and Nick leaned over
and shook his hand.
"I heard it all from Stephanie. All of you thought I was dead,
but I was just MIA, the military thought I was dead," Nick said
and my heart sank. I cannot think about him dealing with the hell
he went through when he was MIA.
"Well son, I am glad you are alive and home," Rick said and the
men walked into the kitchen. My mom just stared at Nick and she
began to cry.
"Mom, are you okay?" I said grabbing her shoulder.
"I cannot believe he is alive," she said and I hugged her.
"Believe it mom, we are getting married as planned. We set the
date for January fifteenth," I said and smiled. Nick and I
decided to go ahead and set the date last night before he left.
My birthday is January ninth, so I want the wedding around my
"Mrs. Richards!" Mom said and touched my cheek. Through out the
evening, we enjoyed some wine coolers, yes I drank some, but not
enough to get drunk, and watched some movies. When my parents
went to bed, Nick and I went to my bedroom. When he closed the
door, he kissed me and pushed me on the bed and took my clothes
off. When I was bare naked, I took his clothes off and grabbed
his 9-inch dick and moved my hand up and down.
"Baby, please just let me fuck you!" Nick said and I opened my
legs and he slid his hard dick into my wet pussy. We fucked each
other until we couldn't think no more and my head got dizzy. I
tried to quiet down my moans, which I did a good job at that.
When we cum together, we went to my pillows and cuddled. Nick
finally seen my tattoo and of course, he liked it.
"You listened to me, its not my name or a naked man," Nick said
and I laughed.
"Oh, but a tattoo of you naked on my chest would've been nice," I said touching his chest hair.
"You naughty, naughty girl!" he said and kissed me. I never felt like this before. I loved Nick more than ever, and I didn't know that was even possible, but I love the idea of me loving Nick more!
