Chapter Forty Four - Life goes on

Well lets just get right back into it shall we? The kiddies are all chugging along swimmingly... mostly. Eh, I try not to pay to much attention to them in case they get used to it.

"Mmm mmm mmm mmmm I bet that boy has a pair of handcuffs and knows how to use them."

"Uh Phi, you know he can probably hear you right?"

"Oh." *blush*

Things are already looking up for our intrepid heiress. It appears that Ebony knew a certain Police Officer and decided to set them up, as I said, things are looking good.

Apparently Ambrose's gamble with the match-maker paid off. I don't know if Prof. Berjes is her soul-mate, but they seem to get along, then again I don't believe the good professor has ever seen Ambrose in anything other than her nightie.

We sure do hope that thats because he is concentrating on his slick dance moves, and not a reflection of Ambroses skill on the drum kit.

"Darling, I've been searching for you my whole life, and the whole of my previous life as well. I remember when you were a dancing girl, and the way you were dancing right now reminded me of those naughty little shimmies that incited me to brave the kings wrath... Now there is no king, and I want you by my side forever. Say you'll marry me and let the whole world know that our love transcends time and space."

"Of course my love! Becoming your spouse is far less daunting than anything else we have encountered in any of our incarnations."

Uh. Yeah. This really happened. True story.

"So.... Canni see your handcuffs?"

"But we've only just met..." *snicker*

"But Officer, I've been a bad bad girl."

"Perhaps I should search you for contraband?" *eyebrow waggle*

Um, yeah. No problems here obviously. Actually, all this relationship stuff that is happening is making me a little queasy, time to change the subject to something completely unrelated.

Pretty much the story goes that I had played the old modern lot for a lot longer than I actually blogged about it, and thusly I was bored. So I re-did the old Iata Pi house, this time with a slightly more collegiate theme to it. It looks pretty, and while it does take half an hour to travel from one side to the other, I like it for the time being.

This is the back view. The house itself features 4 bedrooms with ensuites and balconies, a large entry hall, open plan living and dining, a gym and a study. As I said, I kinda like it. Of course now the Iata Pi kiddies are well and truly poor college students, but I choose to believe it helps build character.

"So there I was trying on clothes, and Wyatt tries to come into the changing booth...."

"So why did you stop him?"

"I was just trying to help you choose the most flattering outfit sweeties..."

"Boys are pigs, you should switch teams."

"Obviously kharma was trying to reunite you with your soul mate."

"I'd like to try that, but I'd probably just get told I'm a disgusting pervert."

And on and on and on and on....never again will I let the whole household share a meal. I swear it took like 6 hours for them to finish gas bagging and get those pork chops down.

Euw! Euw euw! Okay, I have a tendancy to prefer neat sims, and Ebony is anything but neat, so she pees in the shower. Euw! This time I caught her, mostly however she keeps those truly disgusting impulses to herself.

Awww. Theres nothing like a little slow dancing to cement what is already yet another whirlwind relationship for young mistress Phoenix. This time however I approve, which makes it sweet rather than inconvenient.

"I'll never get engaged. I figure, if I don't get engaged, I wont get married, and then I can make money for myself and spend it on furniture and plants and no-one will nag me about it."

"I see. I'm saving myself for marriage."



Well then, this certainly is awkward. Considering our nefarious plans for this evening.

"Just listen to my proposal, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by what I have to offer. You do realize that if you get married you have twice as much money to spend on shrubbery and kitchen benches don't you my love?"

"I'm listening...."

"Not only that, but my families assets have accumulated to nearly 500,000 simoleons, including a holiday home on Twikki Island and our very own business. If you think about it, thats an awful amount of money, not even 2.5 dependants could make a dent in that, particularly if we manage the wealth astutely. We could even double it if we were so inclined. This is of course all dependant on you agreeing to the legal merger of our resources. Stick with me baby and I'll shower you with riches."

"Well, if you put it that way. I'd be a fool to pass up this opportunity."

Yeah. Long-winded right? Despite the flirting it seems that Shannon is a little gun-shy when it comes to marriage. Thankfully Phoenix used to be a knowledge sim, and thus was able to salvage the situation.

After the proposal, none of the girls were able to get a hold of Shannon, despite having him in their relationship panels. But being the tricky player that I am, I found that Elspeth also knew the reluctant groom and so I spent a few days in the Main house building up their relationship so that we could move him in and not loose him forever. Whilst we were there we were able to witness a very special miracle. As promised, Puffy was bred to a Fluffy clone and we're about to meet the result.

Of course it's early days yet, but Juppy promises to be a very special little boy indeed. I can't wait to see what his genetics spit out.

But that will have to wait, now that Shannon is officially part of the Vulcan household I've got to get the kids finished at Uni and out into the world. Which incidently is the subject of the next post. Better get cracking right?

Oh so the Vulcan gals are marrying professors and cops. I love it.

""So.... Canni see your handcuffs?"

Hehehehe me thinks there is more up her sleeve than just marrying....Phoenix seems to have a fixation on handcuffs.

Yes--let's hope she doesn't go for a life of crime!
