PostSubject: I'm back (Jake)   Fri Sep 19, 2014 10:38 am

Scarlett was back from hiding, now that Artemis had found her and their daughter she was stuck coming back with him. Scarlett was sitting at a Burger King with Adam sitting across from her eating his cheese burger and French fries while she was eating her food and in a booster seat next to her was Lilac eating her baby cereal and kicking her feet happily. Scarlett took a sip of her drink.

The note that had come for Jake to meet up with Scarlett Jorde had been one he had wholeheartedly thought he was going to ignore. Or rather, one he'd tried to ignore. Mostly because he was under the impression that he was likely going to have his ass handed to him, or that she was going to bring up the past. He sincerely didn't want to do that.

But the longer he tried to forget about the note, the more prominent it became.

So, with a little hesitance, he'd responded to the witch to say that he would be there. And, of course, he was. Stepping in to the fast food restaurant that the witch had chosen, it only took a few moments for Jake to locate her. Surely in such a place, and in front of Adam... and another child, Scarlett couldn't hurt him, right? Jake hoped so! Moving to the table, Jake smiled to the witch in question.

"Hey Scarlett!" He addressed the witch, sliding in to the booth next to her son. "And Adam, how are you, buddy?" Jake asked, the boy before looking across the table to his mom and then the momentarily to the child beside her. "And this one, I don't think I know yet." He added, trying to keep it light. It had been so long since he'd seen the witch, he was quite sure he wasn't to know the child's name, or if it was even Scarlett's.

Scarlett waited for Jake to arrive at the fast food place, it wasn't her first choice but Adam wanted to be there and she didn't want to say no to the kid because he had been good since she ran away from her problems. When she saw Jake, she cringed at his happiness. "Hi Jake, why are you so chipper today?" She asked in a monotone. Everyone knew that there was barely a time when you saw her smile or happy, even on a good day (which barely happened) she was never ever chipper.. not even to family. Adam looked at his godfather and smiled.

"Hey Jake! I am about to lose my tooth" Adam said as he pointed to one of his teeth on the bottom of his mouth. "Mommy says to let it fall out on its own, but she also offered to do it for me" Adam said innocently which caused Scarlett to smirk. There would be a day when Scarlett's wickedness rubbed off on him and she was waiting for it. "So Jake" Scarlett started. "I am guessing you're wondering why I asked you here. Oh and before I forget, this is Lilac... my other child. I had her with that D-I-C-K Artemis Capulet" she spelled 'dick' for him because she didn't want that language around Adam... right now at least.

"Hi Jake, why are you so chipper today?"

Jake shrugged slightly, not overly sure. He was nervous, so he was compensating with being overly nice. Though, obviously, he was always a nice person, so it didn't make too much of a difference. But, the man sobered up a little, he didn't wish to aggravate the woman.

"Hey Jake! I am about to lose my tooth"

"So you are, little man. Remember to put it under your pillow for the tooth fairy! You should get at least a dollar for that one!" Jake told the boy with a smile, before sobering at the comment about Scarlett offering to take it out for him. "Yeah, don't let your mommy do that." Jake added, casting a glance across at Scarlett that said she really shouldn't say such things to her children. Though, of course, he would never openly tell her how to look after her own children. Definitely not his place.

"I am guessing you're wondering why I asked you here. Oh and before I forget, this is Lilac... my other child. I had her with that D-I-C-K Artemis Capulet"

"I was hoping you'd explain." Jake replied to the first part before taking in her words. "Lilac is a lovely name, she looks adorable!" Jake told the witch with a fond smile towards the baby in the seat beside her. He'd always had a soft spot for children, though he'd never considered his own, really. The name of the father didn't ring any bells to Jake, but he knew enough to know that Scarlett was not someone who ever seemed to get on with the father of her children.

Scarlett watched Jake shrug when she asked why he was chipper, she didn't care that he did or not, whatever Jake did was his business. Yes she couldn't stand the guy because of his reputation in Salem, but he was the Godfather to her son and she needed to at least try to get along with him. She didn't know why and she'd never admit it but with Artemis in her daughter's life, she needed Jake more then ever right then and there.

Adam was bouncing in his seat, he really liked Jake and was glad that he was just as happy for him as his mother had been. "I know, mommy said that if I am good from now up to the time my tooth falls out then the tooth fairy will leave more then just a dollar" Adam loved his mother and always cared about her opinion even if others thought she was crazy. Scarlett watched as Jake looked at her after Adam told him that she'd gladly take out the tooth for her son. She smirked at the look on Jake's face and at his comment. "I wouldn't care if mommy did it or not, but I want it to come out on its own" Scarlett snorted at her son's reply.

"Why thank you Jake, I quite liked it, it was my mother's middle name" Scarlett had never really liked talking about her parents since they died but she wanted a piece of her mother in her daughter in a way. "Anyway, Artemis found me after I ran and he brought me back here. Can you believe he actually tried to threaten me into bringing her back or he was going to court to take her from me? I swear he has a death wish" Scarlett explained. "Although I didn't bring you down here to talk about how much I hate the guy, I actually asked you to come here because not only has Adam been talking about wanting to see you or that you're his Godfather to begin with, but I think that its in the best interest that we try to get along for him" Scarlett casted her brown eyes at Adam before looking at Jake again. "Believe it or not Jake, you're like a father figure to him" she admitted.

"More than a dollar? That's really lucky!" Jake replied to Adam, smiling as the kid seemed so excited. "I think the tooth fairies prefer the teeth that fall out naturally." He added, trying to encourage the young Jorde to keep his mom away from his mouth. Though, without openly saying that, of course.

The news on the name being Scarlett's moms simply made Jake nod in understanding. He knew the importance of family names being passed down to the children, it was one that featured highly in his own family.

But then the conversation turned to Lilac's father and Jake paused. "If I'm honest, Scarlett, the man sounds like he has his head screwed on quite well. I mean, isn't that what all moms want? For the father to be around to support the child?" Jake asked, highly confused as to why this would be a problem. "But, taking you to court is a little extreme, but you shouldn't keep him from seeing his daughter."

The conversation shifted again, to Adam wanting to see him, and Jake smiled at the kid and ruffled his hair for good nature. "Course you did, kiddo!" He told the boy, before motioning for Adam to continue eating the fries in front of him.

"I just didn't think that I would be welcome after... after Azalea and I split." He admitted to Scarlett. It had been the first time in a long time he'd thought about the witch, but it no longer hurt like it had. It was his past, and he had no wish to go back because he was happy with his new life.

"Believe it or not Jake, you're like a father figure to him"

But that... that was something Jake had not been banking on as he looked to Scarlett with widened eyes. "A... f-father figure?" He managed, not completely sure where the notion had come from. He'd met Adam once... maybe twice when the kid was younger and though he was happy to look out for the kid, he hadn't weighed himself as that heavily influential. "I... don't think I'm following..." Jake added to what he'd said, really trying with this situation but drawing up a blank.

Scarlett knew that Jake's comment was directed at her which caused her to roll her brown eyes at him. He seriously did not just go there but apparently he did. "Yeah well the tooth fairy thinks that a dollar is enough for now... I assume" she replied.

Scarlett wanted to growl at Jake for actually defending Artemis in her eyes. "Are you defending him? Seriously?" Scarlett said to him. She didn't want to have another person on his side defending him. Her grandmother and sister think that she deserves to let Artemis in Lilac's life. "Damn, you're just like Emily and my grandmother."

Scarlett snorted at his reply about how him and Azalea split and thought that she didn't want to see him. "I could careless what happened between the two of you, what goes on in your personal life is your own business, as for not wanting to continue seeing you after that issue, you're Jake. Adam's father split, his godmother is god knows where, and I really don't feel like having him lose his godfather to" Scarlett really loved her son. She was a bitch and evil to people but when it came to Adam and now Lilac, she grown to love the two of them.

"Yes, father figure. I know you know what that is and it means that he is going to need a male figure to look up to. So that opens the door for you Jakey" she smirked. She knew he hated that name.

"Are you defending him? Seriously?"

"I'm just saying that, as a man, we have every right to see our children as women have to seeing their children. Also, men who want to take on that responsibility are quite hard to come across, Scarlett. I don't know many guys who would want to step up after... well, you know.." Jake told the witch, because Merlin he knew many guys who would gladly walk away from such situations.

The comment on why Scarlett was here didn't really make Jake comfortable. Not knowing where two of the three people who were supposed to look after the boy beside him left him with little and less options in this moment.

"Yes, father figure. I know you know what that is and it means that he is going to need a male figure to look up to. So that opens the door for you Jakey"

Jake ignored the slight that was handed, it was very typical of Scarlett to be rude, and he just overlooked it wherever possible. However, Jake could see a flaw in the witch's plans. "Scarlett, you know as much as I want to be a part of Adam's life, both willingly and because I'm his Godfather. But, if Artemis is willing to be part of Lilac's life then surely he'll be more of the father figure to Adam?" Jake asked, not seeing why she would need Jake to fulfil a role that had been taken.

Scarlett glared at him the entire time when he was explaining what he meant. "I know plenty of guys who have walked away from their kids along with mothers, see if I didn't feel a connection with Adam when he was born, I would have given him up" Scarlett said. Now when she thinks about it, she could never give up her son but at the time she wanted to and is glad that she never did. "Besides you don't have any kids. Unless you do?" She wasn't sure.

Scarlett couldn't help but snort at his reply, she didn't even want Artemis in her or her child's life but now Jake was talking about both of her children. "Ha! Like I'd ever let that happen" she replied. "It's bad enough he will be in his daughter's life, let alone my son's life."

Jake simply looked Scarlett like she had three heads when she so simply stated that she could have given the boy beside him up in an instant. Merlin this witch... She didn't understand, really, she didn't understand anything. But the comment about him, Jake shook his head. "I don't have any kids, no. But that doesn't mean that I can't understand why Artemis would want to be in his daughter's life." Jake replied calmly, from where he sat, Scarlett was in the wrong, and he simply couldn't defend Scarlett on that.

"Ha! Like I'd ever let that happen" she replied. "It's bad enough he will be in his daughter's life, let alone my son's life."

"Why don't you let him try, hmm?" Jake asked, it was a bold move, but maybe if the witch really explained why this man was such a bad idea he might side with her. "I mean, I'll be around, but I think I would be stepping on Artemis' toes being the 'father' figure for Adam. I will happily take him places when I'm free, but I'm really busy, Scarlett. I'm really not a reliable enough figure for the kid." Jake explained, trying to make Scarlett see that she'd landed a very good deal with Artemis.

"Give him a trial run, let Adam and Artemis get to know each other, and maybe he'll prove you wrong." Jake summarised.

Scarlett couldn't help but grin when she saw the look on Jake's face when she admitted that she wanted to give Adam up for adoption but decided not to at the last moment. "I see" was all Scarlett could say to him. Never would Scarlett have seen the day when she heard Jake agree with someone else about this kind of situation.

Scarlett had to control herself from blowing up, but she had to try because when she got angry like this, sometimes her power goes a little crazy. Too late to think that, before she knew it she heard someone shouting at the top of their lungs because they couldn't hear their husband. The brunette looked but turned right around, she realized that she took away someone's sense of hearing without even really trying. She could handle that later when she was finished talking to Jake. "Because he already had a D.I.C.K for a father and besides, Artemis will never be his father so he should never even try" Scarlett replied.

"No way in hell will I leave him alone with my son, if he wants to bond with Adam it will be when I'm around, but then again Adam is a miniature me so I won't really have a problem with him and Artemis" Scarlett was so proud.

"Because he already had a D.I.C.K for a father and besides, Artemis will never be his father so he should never even try"

"Artemis won't be his father, no, but he can be the next best thing, and be his step dad, or guardian. Adam might benefit from it too, I mean, he needs a male figure, a constant male figure, and if Artemis is going to be around, like it or not I think he's going to influence Adam much, much more than I will." Jake told the witch softly, she had to understand that, she couldn't protect Adam from Lilac's father if he was going to be around, without making him feel left out.

"Also, you don't have to leave Adam alone with Artemis, you can stay with them, let them get to know each other. I'll be around if you need me to be, but I'm really busy, Scarlett. I barely have time for the things I want to do, let alone be a prominent feature in a kid's life!" Jake tried to explain to the witch, but she simply didn't seem to be getting that she had every opportunity being given to her and she was refusing to take them out of sheer stubbornness.

"But apart from Artemis, how have the three of you been?" Jake asked, trying to switch topics because he simply had had enough to trying to argue something that Scarlett wasn't grasping.

When Jake mentioned something about stepfather, Scarlett looked at him like he was completely insane. "I don't believe in marriage so that shall never happen... ever" Scarlett made sure that was clear. Never did she believe in love or marriage, just sex. Now that she was thinking about it, her and old Jake sort of had something in common, which was absolutely scary as hell.

"Fine Jake, I shall at least try but no promises" she thought that she'd kind of give him the benefit of the doubt. He was busy with being an Auror, Professor, and from what she heard he had a new girlfriend. She wasn't mad about him moving on from Azalea, he'd do the same if she was actually in his position but she never would be so she couldn't say.

"We've been good, going back to work and Adam is in school while my grandmother watches Lilac" she answered.

When the witch relented, after telling him quite clearly that she wouldn't be getting married, Jake was happy. From what he'd heard, Artemis didn't sound like a bad person, and seeing as Scarlett couldn't come up with a solid argument for him not to be in Lilac's life, Jake could see it was simply the usual stubborn streak of the witch before him. Artemis would owe him one, that was for sure.

"We've been good, going back to work and Adam is in school while my grandmother watches Lilac"

"You're back at the pub?" Jake asked, because he couldn't remember for the life of him if he was thinking of the right person. "How's the trade going, busy?" He added, because this was a much safer stem of conversation.

When Jake asked if she was back at the pub she nodded. "Yes I am, after my short leave of absence and seeing how down hill it has gotten without me running it, I decided to put them all out of their misery and go back to it. Besides, I need something to do when I don't have the children, I really can't torment people anymore" with her being a full time mother and working, she barely had time to torment people who annoyed her from time to time.

"Busy is not the word Jake" was all she said.

Jake listened as Scarlett explained how she'd gone back to work. Yes, Adam was now pre-school age, so he was probably starting now, but Jake didn't like the idea of leaving Lilac at such a young age with other people. "Where does Lilac go when you're working then?" Jake asked, not sure how Scarlett could be away from the child so much at a young age. But then, Jake was old fashioned in his views, and he didn't have children, so he couldn't exactly say out loud what he thought.

"Busy is not the word Jake"

"I know that one, for sure." Jake replied softly, noting Adam had finished his meal beside them and was now playing with the toy happily. "I should let you guys go, it looks like Adam has finished. But, I'll come around when I have time, I promise." He told Scarlett with a small smile.

When Jake asked about Lilac and where she goes when Scarlett is at work, she spoke to him. "She goes with my grandmother or the babysitter that I hired, but then again I have cameras all in my home so that I can keep a close eye on her when she doesn't know it" Scarlett explained to him. She liked knowing that her children were 100% safe.

"Alright, I'm sure he'd love to see you again. Say bye Adam" she said to her son.

"Aw! Bye Jake, I hope I see you again soon. Maybe we can play trains the next time I see you" Adam said with his voice full of hope.
