Good news from Caitlin! I’m an aunt again.
William, as a vampire, is a master of stealth.
He can be right in front if you, and you don’t even see him.
Then WHOOSH! He appears and scares you.
Just one of the exciting things about living with a creature of the night.
A long time ago, I looked at renovating the basement. We didn’t have money to do much, but I did put a chess set and a light down there. Franklin found it! He’s become passionate about logic.
I was so excited to see him use the chess set that I completed the renovation! We have a little bit more money now, since I finished a few more cases.
William shared his ancient wisdom with Irene. She was much more receptive than Helen was.
Irene gets along with anyone, even William. She’s the only one of our kids who actually gets along with there dad. He’s a hard man to love.
Helen washed the bathtub! I’m so proud of her.
AriWong called and asked if he could bring his kids came over for a playdate. It sounded like a good idea to me.
Wong and I got along great.
Maybe a little too well.
After we introduced ourselves, he said “OK! You have the kids! I’ll be back to pick them up!” Then he ran off. I guess he was really excited about the free child care.
I entertained Jennika Wong with my apple conjuring.
She didn’t look terribly impressed, but she said she liked me. I guess she just has bitchy resting face.
Then I said goodbye and headed to the spa for a ms. My pregnancy wasn’t showing much yet, but my back was killing me.
I had a tasty snack of conjured apple before going inside.
Back home, the Wong kids were more interested in talking to each other than playing with my kids.
That seemed to suit my kids just fine.
Except Gideon, who was terrified of the dominoes table for some reason.
Then Jennika played alone with our toys. Her brother Demitrius went upstairs to play video games with William.
But instead of leaving, he let Gideon persuade him to sit down for a game of dominoes. I guess Gideon got over his domino phobia.
After Gideon lost at dominoes, he headed upstairs.
And came right back down. “I’m not sure what happened,” he said.
“I have to use the bathroom bad,” Helen commented. So she headed upstairs.
And came right back down.
This was starting to get ominous.
Ari didn’t seem to mind being stuck in the basement. He picked up a guitar and started grooving.
“I have to pee,” Irene said. “Let me try this.”
At which point, by the magic of the simgods, the staircase underwent a striking transformation.
It didn’t save Helen from am embarrassing accident, however.
Franklin made it, though.
Then everyone gathered in the kitchen to celebrate.
It was the kittens birthday! First Micky.
Jennika wasn’t terribly impressed, though.
Irene still needed to pee, so she headed to her bedroom.
Nova suggested she get something to eat.
Of course! Irene found the cats inspiring.
So she ran outside.
It was raining, so she stopped to catch raindrops on her tongue.
At which point, nature took its course. But she was outside and wearing a skirt, so she could pretend nothing happened. Maybe that was the point?
Back down in the basement, the unthinkable happened.
Ari Wong’s time was up.
“No!” Jennika cried. “You can’t do this!”
“Wow,” Franklin said. “Nobody’s died in our basement before. That’s uncool.”
“Boring,” Irene observed.
“I sense something terrible has happened,” Demitrius said suddenly.
“Just don’t get in the way of my soaps,” William said.
Ari begged for enough time to take his kids back home.
But it was not to be.
Grim was unimpressed by the whole basement rec room.
I arrived home, feeling refreshed, but a lot more pregnant. I had the strange sense that something terrible had happened. Maybe it was the huge puddle of pee on the floor that clued me off.
“Don’t go down there,” Franklin told me. “It’s not pretty.”
I started to clean up. That’s when I saw Grim.
“Out of my way,” Grim said in his otherworldly voice.
“Did you take one of my family?” I demanded.
“Not this time.”
“Then you can wait till I clean up this pee.”
When I was done, I stepped aside.
Grim wandered out into the darkness.
By the time I was able to trudge upstairs, I was ready to learn to cook Ambrosia. That way, I could bring William back to life so I could kill him myself.
“YOU!” I shouted when I saw him. “You did this to me!”
Apparently, I got through to him, undead and all. “Whuh?” he said.
“I’m through with you!” I said. “I’m done with the messes you make. I’m done with your mean jokes. And most of all, I’m done with your… your…
“your impossible fertility!”
“Babe, you can’t be serious!” William pleaded. “I know you’re tired, and this baby is a big surprise. Just rest. Everything will feel better in the morning.”
“I’ll rest when you get out of this house,” I said. “We’re through.”
“Baby, please!” William said.
“Baby is exactly the wrong thing to say at this moment,” I told him.
William was a broken man. He trudged down the stairs and stood sobbing at the bottom.
Then he tried to move out.
But he couldn’t bring himself to leave. He stood staring at the door for most of the night.
Self-Peeing: 11 + 2 = 13
I was wondering when we’d get a fail. We got two. One of them was because of the glitched staircase, but Irene definitely earned hers. In fact, the game gave her an extra 15 minutes to get to toilet twice.
That was annoying. I’m pretty sure those stairs worked when I added the basement. There are a bunch of glitches associated with stacking staircases, but those should have worked. There are some forum posts that indicate that sacked staircases completely broke with Island Paradise.
So, I suppose we need a few words of explanation for Erin and William’s little spat. Erin had a midlife crisis. She had it before I stopped playing months ago to focus on the Samples, so I’d completely forgotten until, out of the blue, she rolled a wish to divorce William. I always ignore the random divorce wishes between happily married couples, but this is an ISBI, so….
