Jasmine wasn't looking forward to the reading of the will. She had the feeling that her father cut her out of the will and left everything to his favorite child. Jasmine walked down the stairs and looked at the lawyer waiting there with her brother and his husband. The lawyer looked a bit like a guy from a soap that Jasmine watched but she was blanking on the name.
"Finally the queen arrives. Let's get this show on the road."
Jasmine, Barry, and Pueblo sat down while Mr Travers pulled out a DVD. He put it into the DVD player and pushed play.
"Greetings from beyond the grave."
Jasmine rolled her eyes. She had been hoping that the reading would be quick. She wanted to go out and get shitfaced.
"Jasmine my lovely daughter I know you want to get out and get drunk right now but bear with me for a moment. I'm sure you thought I cut you out of the will but I haven't. To my daughter I give you half of the shares of Devane Industries."
Jasmine was shocked and absolutely thrilled. She was now the proud owner of one of the most successful adult entertainment companies in the world.
"Barry my dear son you get the other half."
Jasmine wondered who would get the house. She was afraid that dad would give it to Barry and his husband.
"I want both of my children to share the family home. Get along you two. It is a mansion for shit's sake so enjoy it."
Jasmine was so happy. She felt like dancing but felt like that might be in poor taste especially if she wanted to get a date with the cute lawyer.
"I'm hungry. Let's get something to eat P."
Barry and Pueblo left. They were holding hands. They were so disgustingly cute that Jasmine felt like throwing up. She wouldn't ever admit it to either one but she envied what they had. Jasmine looked at Travers and smiled when he looked her way.
"Want to go grab some dinner."
"I'm sorry Jasmine. I have another engagement."
Jasmine got up and went back upstairs. She slammed the door shut. It wasn't fair that Barry had someone and she didn't. She didn't want to hire another guy to take her out for the evening.
"Screw this I'm a Devane."
Jasmine went back to her closet and pulled out a tight red dress that fit her like a glove. She put on the matching hooker heels and went out to paint the town red and hopefully she'd run into someone that wanted to be fucked until the wee hours of the morning.
To Be Cont.
Jasmine cursed the day she was adopted by Patrick Devane. At first it seemed to be the thing to have ever happen to her but all that changed when Patrick adopted another kid. She remembered the day when Patrick came into her room and told her he was adopting another child.
"Don't you love me anymore daddy?"
"Of course I do sweetheart."
He held Jasmine as she cried.After he got up he bent over and kissed Jasmine on the forehead. The next day he introduced her to her new brother.
"Meet your brother."
Jasmine looked at the little boy sucking his thumb.
"Jasmine this is Barry."
Jasmine just stared at the boy who continued to suck his thumb
"Can I have a pony daddy?"
Patrick didn't hear his daughter since he was too busy staring at his new child. Jasmine glared at Barry before she stormed off to her bedroom and slammed the door behind her.
Barry knocked on Jasmine's door.
Even now years later Jasmine was annoyed by her brother but he was all she had now that dad was dead. It seemed like a nightmare that she couldn't wake up from. She wished it was Barry that was dead instead of her dad.
"Let me in Jasmine."
Jasmine got out of bed and opened the door. Barry wasn't alone. Barry's husband Pueblo was standing right next to him. They were a regular Ken and Ken. She wondered if Pueblo was anatomically correct.
"What do you want?"
Jasmine ignored Pueblo. The guy just rubbed her the wrong way. She couldn't put her finger on what it was about him that made her blood run cold.
"Tyrone's going to read the will now. You need to be there."
"I'll be downstairs in an hour."
Jasmine closed the bedroom door and went to her closet. She didn't know what to wear.
