Chapter 3.3 – Duplicity

The next evening, Cater arrived at work with the biggest grin on his face.  He had been trying to relax his facial muscles ever since Sadie had left his bed a few hours ago, but he had eventually given up. He was happy and he wanted the world to see.

“Whoa, looks like someone got some last night,” Harvey mocked seeing Carter’s smug face walking towards him.

“It’s not like that,” Carter replied playfully knocking his friend on the shoulder.  “I think I’m in love man.”

“Love,” Harvey splattered.  “Not with a girl like that I hope.”

“What do you mean with a girl like that? What’s wrong with Sadie?”

“Don’t get me wrong mate she seems like a nice enough girl, but I see her type coming in here all the time.  You’re the flavour of the month right now but soon she will move onto some other poor schmuck.”

“Sadie’s not like that man.  She wouldn’t do that to me.  We have a real connection.”

“Hey man, it’s none of my business,” Harvey said walking off behind the bar.  “I just don’t want to see you get hurt,” he called back. 

Carter scratched is head, Sadie’s not like that, he told himself again.  She loves me.  I’ll prove Harvey wrong!

The two boys got to work opening up the bar and mixing drinks for the punters. It was heaving at The Brightmore that night and Carter and Harvey did not have one moment to even say two words to each other.

When 1am came round most of the evening trade dispersed and they were left with just a few waifs and drunks with nowhere else to go.  For the first time all night the bar was quiet and Harvey took the opportunity to ask Carter for a favour.  “Hey man,” he said as Carter was wiping down his counter.  “I have a little job for you.”

“Sure thing Harvey,” Carter replied turning around and wiping his soggy hands on his apron.  “What do you need?”

“Well it’s not the usual sort of job you do here.” Harvey looked around the room suspiciously and then leant into Carter’s ear.  “It requires discretion if you know what I mean.”

Carter did not like where this was going.

“I need you to deliver a package for me to the Abandoned Warehouse on the outskirts of Bridgeport, near to the Docklands.”

“What’s in the package,” Carter snapped back.

“I cannot say mate and whatever you do, do not open it.  Can I have your discretion on this?”

Carter felt sick inside. The exhilaration from earlier had worn off and he was left with a deep dread inside.  Unanswered questions spun around in his head.  What was he delivering?  Would he get into trouble for it?  Was someone going to get hurt because of it?  One thing he knew was that whatever was in that package, it was highly illegal.

“Erm…. I don’t think I’m the man of the job,” he replied.

“Yes you are! You’re just the man for the job. I trust you.”

This wasn’t going well, Harvey was not getting the message.  Carter knew he just had to spell it out for him. “What I mean Harvey is that you’ll have to get someone else to do your dirty work for you.”

Harvey stood back looking at Carter with such an air of disgust, Carter thought he might punch him.  “Are you sure about this? You will be letting me down big time mate, I thought I could reply on you when I got you this job. I hope you know what you’re doing.”

“I’m doing my job,” Carter replied turning away from Harvey and returning to his work space to clean a glass. He could feel the burning heat of rage emanating from Harvey’s body behind him, but he refused to look round at him. The conversation was over.

“I won’t forget this,” Harvey spat also returning to work.

Carter endured the next two hours in silence and then left the moment they shut up the club, he could not stand the air of tension anymore. When he got home, Charlie was still up watching TV in the sitting room.

“Hey man,” Carter said sitting down next to his brother.  “How are the wedding preparations going?”

“No idea to be honest, Heather’s doing the whole thing. She won’t let me help with anything which suits me fine.”

Carter laughed and then sat back into the sofa letting out a huge sigh. The evening’s events were swilling around in his brain and the sudden tension between him and Harvey was making him dizzy.  Had he been wrong not to help him? 

“What’s up with you,” Charlie asked noticing Carter’s unusual silence.

“Nothing,” Carter replied.  “Actually there is something.  Would you do something for a friend if you knew it was wrong?”

“Depends on what it was,” Charlie replied.

“What if it was delivering a package for them that you sort of knew contained illegal stuff?”

“No way man,” Charlie retorted.  “No offence but I wouldn’t even do that for you. What if you got caught, you could get into some serious trouble!  Hey you’re not asking me to do that are you?”

“No of course not, it was just hypothetical,” Carter replied getting up and heading towards the stairs. “I’m turning in, good night.”

Charlie watched him leave wondering if he should be worried about his brother.

Carter had been dreading going into work the next day. The only thing that forced him from calling in sick was that Sadie had promised to come in and see him, he had really missed not seeing her the night before. 

As he entered the bar he had no idea what kind of mood Harvey was in and if he would even be talking to him. So he was pleasantly surprised when Harvey looked up and waved at him as he approached the bar.  “Hey mate,” Harvey called out.  “How you doing?”

Carter felt a huge relief flood through him.  Harvey was obviously over Carter’s apparent betrayal from the night before.  “I’m good thanks man,” he replied putting on his apron and joining his best friend behind the bar.

“Great, then let’s get to work.” And that’s just what they did. They worked and bantered together like the previous evening had never happened and Carter found himself wondering what all the fuss had been about.

As the night wore on, Carter kept one eye always on the door waiting for Sadie.  When she eventually walked through the curtained door, Carter’s heart skipped a beat.  “Hey baby,” he said calling over to her.

Carter watched as she moved across the room like a swan and straight into the arms of Harvey.  She did not even look at Carter, he was invisible to her as Harvey drew her in and kissed her deeply. All Carter could do was watch on in shock.

When she eventually pulled away she stroked Harvey’s cheek telling him she will see him later. Only now, did she finally turn to Carter.  “Hey sorry it did not work out between us,” she said very matter-of-factly.  “When I came here last night looking for you Harvey told me you had already left.  You never told me that Harvey was the head bar-man around here, not you. I think me and him are much better suited!”

And with that she turned on her heel and walked back through the door she had only just walked through moments before. But in that short space of time, Carter’s world had come crashing down.

Still unable to speak, he turned to Harvey who was smiling.  “See mate,” he said.  “I told you she would replace you by the end of the week.”

Rage boiled inside Carter. He felt his skin burning and had to restrain himself from pulling Harvey’s head off.  “Don’t mate me,” he hissed.  “You know how I felt about her.”

“I did you a favour. I took her off you before she twisted with your mind.”

“You bast*rd!  Where I come from you don’t do that to friends.”

“Yeah well where you come from they’re still holding onto their mother’s apron strings!”

Carter could not hold back anymore. He stormed out from under the bar and punched Harvey hard in his jaw. “I don’t work here anymore,” he cried pushing Harvey out of the way and heading out the door without looking back.

“I Charlie Starr take you Heather Hamill to be my lawful wedded wife. To have and to hold from this day forth to death do us part.”

Being a loner, only family were invited to Charlie’s wedding.  And as Heather was estranged from hers that meant the entire Starr Family were the only guests.  April and Sissy stood to one side with Bella, all three of them crying at the nuptials.

Brendan also came with his wife Champagne and their two children, Peaches and Jude.  Time had been good to both Champagne and Brendan, though Bella knew that vast amounts of plastic surgery probably had a lot to do with it.

Where Carter was the best man, Kitty-Boo was the maid of honour.  It was a magical day, even though Charlie would have preferred it to have been just the two of them.

After the wedding breakfast had been served and everyone was up on the dance floor, Carter sat alone watching his family from afar.  Ever since the Harvey and Sadie incident a month ago, he had shut himself off in his room, not talking to anyone.

“How you holding up Cous,” Kitty Boo said coming and sitting with him.

“Oh you know,” Carter replied. “I’m so happy for Charlie. Just look at them, have you ever seen two people more in love?”

Kitty looked over at Charlie and Heather swaying to the music together, their eyes locked dreamily. 

“I know,” Kitty sighed with happiness.  “Opposites sure do attract.”

“It’s not just that,” Carter replied.  “They trust each other explicably.  That’s something to treasure in itself.”

“Are you ok Carter?  Mum told me what happened with your friend and the bar.”

“I’ll survive,” Carter replied.  “Just remind me to never fall in love again.”

“Carter you can’t think like that.  Not everyone’s bad.”

“I know,” Carter replied pulling Kitty to her feet.  “Now cheer me up and dance with me.”

“That I can do,” Kitty replied letting Carter spin her across to the dance floor.   She knew something had broken inside him and prayed to herself that it would repair in time.  He was the heir after all!

    Awwww, poor Carter.

    I can’t help but think that Harvery did him a favour, though. Sadie sure didn’t seem as though she loved him.

    *clings onto a tiny bit of hope that Harvey’s really good*

  2. Amy6 says:

    What a sweet wedding! Now I hate Sadie and Harvey.. How come Lee wasn’t at the wedding?

  3. Coraleaf says:

    If they weren’t cousins they would be perfect for each other….. wait…. She’s not related to Carter because April didn’t have her. Right??

  4. coraleaf says:

    Great Chapter! I made a comment not logged in and i put in the wrong email address :/

  5. carebear728 says:

    Harvey is such an a*******, Carter will find someone better than Sadie. I loved the wedding and it was nice to see everyone.

  6. I hate harvey…
    Hopefully Carter will fall in love soon and have some smexy babies<3

  7. Roxy says:

    Harvey!! What a jerkface! I’m proud of Carter for not doing what Harvey asked him to do. I can’t believe he took Sadie from him. I was hoping that they would get married because her look is so different and could create some really interesting kids. Oh well! Time to move on and find a new girl.

    And, Congratulations to CHARLIE AND HEATHER! YAY!

  8. rissanicole says:

    Yay Sadie’s gone , i hated her.And I think Harvey actually did do him a favor .
    Great chapter can’t wait for the next : D

  9. Radke Legacy says:

    I just knew that Sadie was going to hurt him. But there is more fish in the sea!!!!!

  10. nightrain17 says:

    Poor Carter, if my best friend did that to me, well my best friend wouldn’t have a face afterwards. Heather and Charlie look beautiful together, congrats for the newly wed.

    I have my own legacy up, and was wondering if you’d take a look at it. It’d mean a lot if you did.

  11. kama674 says:

    Altough I’m feeling sorry for poor Carter, I’m really glad that Sadie is gone! He can find someone better out there 🙂 I loved the wedding, Heather’s dress is lovely. It was nice to see Brendan, April, Bella and the rest of the Starrs again ;D

    Anyways, great chapter! When’s the next one going to come out?

  12. hbhonda1989 says:

    It is unfortunate he got his heart broken but at least he found out early how shallow Sadie is.

  13. Awww such a sweet wedding, Charlie and Heather will be so happy.

    Poor Carter, Sadie was so awful, and Harvey really is no good.

  14. aimy says:

    first chong from the shenston legacy and now sadie. asian people are horrible.

  15. Slushie says:

    Charlie and Heather are so cute together! I’m shocked that Harvey would do something like that to Carter. He seems like such a different person! But maybe Carter has seen him in his true colors? I dunno.

  16. mmmmmmmhmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!! says:

    In the next chapter, when Kitty Boo and Carter are dancing, they suddenly start kissing! ❤

  17. kimmy says:

    Oh my gosh! These people with kitty and carter together! even though theiyre not blood related, thatd still be nasty. Its like kissing you stepsister or brother! D: No no no!!!!

  18. nightrain17 says:

    Thanks for looking at my legacy Sarah, love this legacy and I’ve just added you to my links, subscribing now (which I forgot to do last night)

  19. Em says:

    I’m glad Carter didn’t agree to deliver the package, what a bastard Harvey turned out to be!

  20. Dreamy Underwood says:

    I thought Harvey would be nice. *tear*. Oh well, I want Carter to brush him self off and start again just like Grandma Allie did before and traced back a bit before settling in.

  21. sydney511 says:

    I am actually on Harvey’s side – he was doing him a favor, telling that she would be with somebody else by the end of the week.

  22. Poodle says:

    Poor Carter! I do think he needs to stop wallowing and moping though, he needs to get back on the horse!

  23. Crap. I just started liking Sadie. But Harvey’s still cool. Even if he’s a douche. Kinda hoping Harvey and Carter make up. But on a good note I’m so happy for Charlie and Heather! 🙂

  24. Lindsey says:

    So I literally GASPED when I saw Sadie go and kiss Harvey! I was in awe for a good minute with my hand over my mouth!
    And Kitty Boo is soooo pretty! It’s not incest if they’re not blood related!! 😉

  25. Lindsey says:

    oh and I like that this was the third chapter in third generation on march third, it’s my birthday today so it must be a sign!

  26. Thea says:

    What a jerk! I’m glad Carter quit. Such a nice small wedding too, I loved her dress very non-traditional.

  27. Becci says:

    CUUUUUUUTEEEE.. heather is my favourite,,, i wish carter married her, now that would be a fantastic gene pool !!
    still, theres plenty of time for him and plenty of lovely ladies in his line of work im sure.

  28. Ne0cats says:

    i was just wondering… in the picture of the characters dancing and carters sitting down, theres a light coming from sissy… did she die at the wedding? or is it something else?

  29. Izzy says:

    Please let Kitty and Carter get together its not incest!!! their not related!!, pretty pretty please they would have some peng babies!!! xxx

  30. Little Red says:

    lol all the comments about Kitty boo and Carter XD

  31. ZusiKas says:

    Kitty is so wonderful! She’s so cute and interesting person. Aww, I don’t want to Harvey be enemy with Carter T.T I’ll waiting your stories. You are amazing!

  32. Izzy says:

  34. Izzy says:

    Omg i love you legacys soooooooooooooooooo much♥ xxx

  35. Dannielle says:

    I am not surprised about Sadie but I’m very surprised about Harvey. But you see, that wasn’t really Sadie who tramped off with Harvey… that was her evil identical twin. And April’s daughter and Carter ARE going to get together. You will see. They aren’t blood related and even if they were, there is only a 1% chance greater than if they WEREN’T cousins that they’d have retarded children. Plus anyway, I don’t think the game allows cousins to get married. Does it?

  36. billy says:

    i just relished something this was made on the 3rd chapter of the 3rd gen of the 3rd day of the 3rd month of your 3rd legacy of your 3rd year of lecacying WOW THATS AMAZING dont u think

  37. Sianystar says:

    Yay, all caught up! Great legacy, I always love yours, the pictures especially are always amazing. They really do speak a thousand words!! 😀 Loving Carter, hope he finds a nicer girl soon 🙂

  38. Tawny says:

    Sadie’s probably going to dump Harvey then Harvey’s going to be upset.

  39. Poodle says:

    Will the next chapter be out by Mon.?
    SO excited

  40. rowanen says:

    Awesome chapter Sarah will there be a new casting call soon?

    • StarSarah says:

      Hopefully but right now there is no need for a new fixed character. As soon as there is, i will put a casting call out x

      • rowanen says:

        Awesome! I thinks its great feature that you do! pls keep it up

      • rissanicole says:

        Hey Sarah , i think it would be really cool if one of these times you had spouse submissions instead of just another character.Then there would be more variety in the genetics,since they would be made by other people.Just a though 🙂

        • StarSarah says:

          Thats a good idea but i normally download the spouces anyway from the exhange and just tweak them slightly. Maybe the next generation i can do this x

  41. XxRockstarrbabyXx says:

    Ooooh! I hope that Carter gets married and then Saddie sees the wedding and gets super mad!

  42. rissanicole says:

    Ha i have to disagree with all the comments saying they should be together.Would you date your step sibling or cousin ?Let alone get married , and have babies?Even though you were brought up to be raised as FAMILY not boyfriends and girlfriends! I definitely wouldn’t lol.I guess it isn’t the blood relation that makes it gross (because there is none ) but the concept of it.Going from calling someone your cousin to your spouse , yuck.

    • StarSarah says:

      I think i agree with you. I have three step-brothers who i grew up with and the thought just grosses me out so much! Kitty and Carter have been bought up together very closely as family. If they had never known each other and just met then maybe it would be different but when they are so close …yuk!

      But i love all the debating about it – its good to see everyone’s opinion x

    • I totally agree i wouldn’t even date K’s step- bro Z. That would be sick. even though he is r cuz step bother.

  43. Jess says:

    For everyone who’s saying Kitty and Carter should get together – it would be ewwww because they have been raised as cousins, maybe Kitty has a really hot friend? ……, 🙂

  44. Glacia says:

    Sarah why did you ever have to put the very last pic with them dancing together in!!! now everybody wants Carter and Kitty to get together! they are cousins if you like the idea so much people than go marry your cousin! 😦

  45. Poodle says:

    None of my cousins are cute enough!

    NOT FAIR
    besides, they arent related by blood, and Sarah has done in before in the Shenston Legacy, not to mention how happy they make each other!

  46. rockit4 says:

    too bad Harvey’s bad, he’s really hot. 😉

    and i read the whole ‘incest’ discussion, and while it isn’t TECHNICALLY incest, it’d still be gross.

  47. Izzy says:

    Hey Sarah i know every1 is thinking that if Carter and Kitty got together it would be incest, so maybe you could create some1 who looks like Kitty and then she could get together with Carter xx

  48. Poodle says:

    Wow, age does not suit april

  49. peachy481 says:

    I absolutely LOVE your writing![;
    Poor Carter!
    But it would mean a lot to me if you read my legacy and told me how it is? Its my first legacy and I would really like some feedback[:
    Thank you!!

  50. risastorm says:

    My computer did not want me to read this chapter… my harddrive died on me in the middle of reading this chapter. Love the chapter tho!<3

    What Harvey did was not cool! Kitty Boo and Carter are such great cousins! cousin love is the best!! cousins are great at making you feel better when you are down.
    I can not wait to see what Carter will do now that he quit his bartender job!

  51. Berry says:

    Kitty is so cute! Carter is lucky to have such a nice sis.

  52. poor carter! i really like harvey so i’m hoping that his bad attitude turns around 😦 sadie was no good, that’s for sure 😉

  53. xx says:

    when is the next chapter coming up??

  54. Oh Lord. says:

    I hope Carter can find a new mixologist job, he was so fit for it! Although, the job might not be the best place to look for a partner, he needs someone who’s a bit different to himself I think, maybe someone at the library, although I have no idea why he would be heading there. Uhm, maybe Charlie knows someone who would fit?

  55. lckygrl1975 says:

    Glad Sadies gone but I did like Harvey oh well 🙂

  56. madismith67 says:

    WOAH. 110 RESPONSES!! That’s amazing! And I was coming down to comment, and it took literally 3 minutes. Just saying. (:

  57. singer14 says:

    Good, I thought Sadie was not all that pretty anyway. When I saw her dancing in the backround in the previous chapter, I was literally like “HER??? Aw man, Carter, you can do so much better.” 🙂
