Chapter Thirty Seven - Jungle Fever

Welcome back, hope you took the opportunity to grab fresh refreshments and...Hey wait a minute. Gotta sort this out. Back into the fray we go!

Elspeth Vulcan! Your husband never has, and never will wear a llama suit. Explain yourself missy!

"I need some time alone to consider where I want my life to go...."

Pull the other one sweetheart, you're seducing Amar aren't you?

"Well, he was a mascot, which is an NPC, and he is much more handsome than Forrest."

I thought you loved Forrest.

"I do, but in my case, love was not only blind, but aesthetically impaired as well."

Yeah. Forrest was the best out of slim pickings.

It started with a kiss.....

.... never thought it would come to this. One moment they were falling in love in the hot tub, the next minute they are jumping out to slap each other silly. With nary an inappropriate thought or speech bubble uttered.

Name: Amar Bransfield
Aspiration: Fortune
Star Sign: (oops I didn't look)
LTW: He has a degree in PoliSci, so I'm sure it has something to do with that.
Turn-ons: Make-up, Custom Hair Turn-off: Creativity
Personality: 5 Neat, 4 Outgoing, 9 Active, 3 Playful, 3 Nice

Yeah. Something about his profile seems to suggest we really weren't interested in much other than the ability to sire children who would look somewhat passable. He also freaked out a good long while after the slapping incident. I guess he really does love Mhairi.

I guess Elspeth really did go on holiday to get to know herself better. Long way to go however, we should probably try and get her aspiration up so that she can use the Social Glasses on herself. Yeah, I blame the Freetime patch thinger. Cos apparently her first BFF was Apple, which is a total lie.

Amar deals with things in his own way. Which happily for the Vulcans includes tending the holiday home gardens which tend to get neglected.

Elspeth prefers a more hands on approach to relaxation. Once her offspring by Amar is old enough she'll be back-packing and seeing if we can't fill in all of those holiday memory thingys. Forrest will not be coming with.

"Wow for me Mr. Voodoo man? You shouldn't have!"

Was this the real reason you came to the island Elspeth?

"Um. It was something for me to do after I heard the chimes?"

"Dododododo. We'll just keep on walking eh Apple? You can watch grandpa read and walk, and I can be so engrossed in the story I won't see your mother trying to kill your father okay baby?"


"Oooh I wonder what would happen if I put this pin here."

"Oooh did the temperature just drop my sweet?"

"Yeah okay."

It appears that some of Ian's characteristics breed true however, or apparently Genesis was very forthcoming when she was at the Iata Pi house with the kids.

"I came to see if you were doing okay Forrest. Over your chill?"

"Yeah, I am now that you mention it. I forgot how good the sun is."

"Good you just sit out here enjoying the hot summer sun. I'm going inside to go over the plans for the night club. Hehehehehe."

Uh-oh! This can't be good.

This doesn't look so good either. Apparently Elspeth wasn't just designing her new nightclub after all.

"Why isn't he dead yet?"

Yeah see this is just creepy. We really put our all into making Count Forrest die, he was practically living in the hot-tub. But still, no combustion. I'm really bad at killing sims :<.

Elspeths needs were a little low, so I figured I'd send her to the Energiser, but after her 3rd time passing out I realised that perhaps having it out in the yard where the 8 million dog ghosts are isn't such a good idea.

"Oh my goshness, my tummy went boing! Soon I will bear the fruit of my illicit affair!"

It's her third pregnancy and she's still surprised. She's still ditzy after all these days. I still luff her.

"Oh my Bob Gina, you have no idea how hard it is to kill a former vampire! I mean I cursed him so many times....What am I doing? Running around naked in the backyard. My doctor says it's good for the baby. *pause* Yeah you got me, what doctor right? I'm waiting for the paperboy, perhaps I can get him to kill Forrest."

Yeah. Elspeth is really starting to come into her own.

Amar drops into the bakery and meets his children for the first time. Yes children. Well not yet.

But it will be once Elspeth gets this plate of cheesecake goodness down her gullet. I figure I don't really want to have any more pregnancies until I know for sure that all the children are cosmetically impaired.

Gah! More deep meaningful stares perpetrated by the need to bathe the toddler. Speaking of which I realize I haven't included any pictures of wee Ebony here. Oops my bad.

Finally the day (or night) is at hand, in a specially color co-ordinated ceremony the Vulcan's related by blood and living in the same house prepare to welcome these new bundles of hope for the future of the family cheekbones!

And with that cliff-hanger I shall leave you. But of course you know that the twins were born fine, they are after all in the list for generation five. But will all this effort be worth it? Or will we have a 4 way competition for the title of Heir?

I really don't know yet either. I have to go play some more to find out what is happening. But rest assured I will play my little fingers to the nubbins trying to find out these answers and more. Or maybe I'll sleep. Who knows, thats part of the allure of this not very Vulcan Legacy!

hummm Free Time Patch, huh? I had a married couple go on a date. Took 'em downtown and they suddenly hopped out of the car, fell out of love and one slapped the other. They both had thought bubbles saying "How dare you dump me for someone else?". Too strange.

Kerry said...

I haven't had any problems with the patch yet, but now I'm nervous. Oh, poor Forrest, his days are numbered--but maybe the number is larger than you thought? He's quite durable--must be that he really kept up with his sleep!

ASimWen said...

Yeah! I haven't had any trouble with Free Time patch. Heh. We will see.

Its me Simmy da blogger using my other account. Just wanted to ask you two question.
1.) How do you get your blog to apear on the internet? Yours is up but no matter how hard I try I cannot get it up. I have tried using the google ping thing and registering. Aparently it takes around a month but it has been way over that amount of time. Any ideas?

2.)Just a request if possible. As your site is on the web and mine is not I was wondering if you could set up a link in your "blogs of note" section. I have set up a link to your blog and if possible I wondered if you could return the favour? :) If not thanks anyway. Better stop blabbing lol.

I will add the link in a min

Thanks again, Simster aka Simmy da blogger.

Oh how do I get it to appear on the interwebs? I actually just use the new posts option in blogger. And I do all the typing and what have you online, then I click the little publish thingy at the bottom et voila.

If you can give me a link I can link it. I am a techological guru or summing. Oh and just FYI new posts incoming :D:D:D
