Chapter 9.3

Chapter 9.3 It’s a bit Chilli

Sometime in December, Tia and Basil became parents to a typically tanned Bailey baby.Screenshot-13514The story behind his birth was one rather amusing tale.  Tia had been repairing the bathtub, which Tremayne had broken in a fit of rage after one of his favourite X-Factor contestants had been voted off during the semi-final.Screenshot-13477Ten minutes into tightening up the taps, Tia felt a sharp twinge in her stomach, which caused her to spring to her feet.Screenshot-13488At first she thought she had picked up food poisoning from the leftover pancakes she had licked off a plate that morning, but after a few more minutes, it became apparent this was a very different sort of pain and she started to cry for help.Screenshot-13483Fortunately, Basil heard the commotion from downstairs and rushed up to see what the problem was.

‘Oh my Rod!’ He exclaimed.Screenshot-13493‘Look at all this mess!  I knew we should have got an actual mechanic to come in and…’Screenshot-13491‘Say another word and you die.’Screenshot-13489Chilli was born a delightful twenty-six hours later.  They actually did not intend to name him that. Tia had planned to call him Ash, but unfortunately Basil thought the nurse was asking him what the weather was like outside when she was filling out the birth certificate.Screenshot-13512Still, Chilli was a delightful baby, and Basil was a very smitten father.Screenshot-13574Screenshot-13576Unfortunately, Maple, who had started to develop arthritis and goodness knows what else, was not very good when it came to holding Chilli.Screenshot-13593No matter what she did, she could not quite grasp the concept of holding him correctly. Screenshot-13592‘Oh bother!’ She would sigh whenever she dropped him.  With her still about, it was a miracle he lived beyond the age of two.Screenshot-13594Since it was Christmas time and all, the Baileys decided to throw a party.  Almond and Pistachio even turned up with food, which meant no would have to bother cooking for the next several days.Screenshot-13549It also turned out that Rolo and Niki were expecting their own bundle of joy.  For some reason they had not bothered telling the rest of the family, despite they only lived next door, which also showed how often they saw them.   Screenshot-13554Speaking of rarely seeing people (or robots), Tremayne’s love interest for the past few hundred decades, Dawn, also made an appearance to this party.Screenshot-13558He was desperate to talk to her.Screenshot-13556Sadly, even with Orion’s support, he lacked the confidence to approach her, especially when he heard she was dating yet another elderly rich man, thus he remained sad and lonely for the foreseeable future.  Screenshot-13557In time, Chilli grew up to be a cute toddler, a luxury that still currently went unknown in the Sims 4.Screenshot-13682Tia was a fantastic mother, and even had the genius idea of potty training Chilli outdoors, where the smell would not cause anyone to throw up slightly in their mouths.Screenshot-13685Screenshot-13687Basil also doted on his baby boy, who was practically his clone.Screenshot-13631‘Goodnight Son.  Daddy’s got to go out to work and con people.’Screenshot-13632He still also found the time to dote on Bongo, who had grown up from this…Screenshot-13211…into an awesome big dog.    Screenshot-13675‘If you break into our house, I will eat you.’ Bongo warned.Screenshot-13677

   

Chapter 9.2

Chapter 9.2 – Hen Shower

Tia found out she was pregnant a couple of months after her engagement to Basil.Screenshot-13304She was excited to birth the final baby in the legacy and to marry Basil once the weather was nicer.Screenshot-13319Sadly, things were not all sunshine, lollipops and babies in the Bailey household.   Quite recently Maple had discovered Cory’s extensive collection of alien porn on the household laptop.Screenshot-13297‘I’ve tried getting help,’ Cory explained solemnly, ‘but my addiction is too strong to break!’Screenshot-13298‘It’s always excuses with you,’ Maple hissed, eyebrows furrowing beyond their natural ability.  ‘Sometimes I think I’d be better off without you!’Screenshot-13299Minutes later, Maple’s wish was granted.Screenshot-13323Screenshot-13326‘Yo, you’re dead.’Screenshot-13350‘Woooooo!’ Cory cheered.Screenshot-13347‘Ok, that wasn’t the reaction I was expecting…’Screenshot-13349‘This is sure to make Maple feel guilty for the rest of her days,’ Cory explained, his eyes gleaming with glee.   Screenshot-13346‘You’re not allowed to be happy that you’ve died,’ The Grim Reaper moaned.  ‘Can you at least pretend you don’t want to cross over yet?  I get a bonus for each person who pleads for their life you see, and times have been tough recently…’Screenshot-13341With reluctance, and partly out of the kindness of his still heart, Cory dropped to his knees.  He hoped he would be granted an awesome house in the afterlife for doing this.Screenshot-13353‘Oh please spare me, your Lordship!  I have so much to live for, so much more I want to see, so many more aliens I want to…’Screenshot-13355‘Err, come to think of it, I didn’t actually want to die… Pleeeease don’t….’Screenshot-13357‘Bored now!’ The Grim Reaper announced, before painfully sending Cory off to the afterlife with a swipe of his scythe.Screenshot-13361‘I’m going to feel so guilty for the rest of my days,’ Maple sobbed, whilst Tremayne daydreamed about finding somebody to love.Screenshot-13332And so, the graveyard collection grew once more.Screenshot-13363A few months later, when everyone had forgotten about Cory, Maple organised a baby shower for Tia.Screenshot-13386She invited a small handful of guests, including Almond, Niki, and Christie – the girl who broke Orion’s heart many moons ago. Screenshot-13403Tia was happy she could finally use her mixology skills to make some yummy beverages.Screenshot-13395Non-alcoholic of course, what with being pregnant and all.Screenshot-13401‘Erm, who the hell is he?’ Tia asked when she noticed a stern looking man with pigtails shuffle over to the pizza.    Screenshot-13406‘My name is Brenda,’ the man simply said, which perhaps suggested that he, or she, was going through some kind of gender identification crisis.   Screenshot-13409Still, things started well as they all sat around the table, chatting about the latest developments in their lives.  When the doorbell rang, Tia wondered, as she sat up, when they were going to shower her with presents for the baby.Screenshot-13411When Tia answered the front door, the truth came tumbling in, along with Nicole, Pistachio’s wife.

‘Let’s get ready to paaaartaaaay!’ Screenshot-13422As it turned out, the baby shower was just a cover up so Maple could pull off a surprise hen do for Tia, despite she would not be marrying Basil anytime soon.

‘He’s a mighty fine stripper, isn’t he?’ Nicole announced.  She sunk down into a squat position and stated to pant like dog.Screenshot-13418‘I’d like to get my paws on him!’Screenshot-13420‘I’d better grab the mop and bucket,’ Tia cringed as a puddle started to form on the floor where Nicole was standing.  Screenshot-13407Despite how messed up the situation was, everyone had a great time.Screenshot-13435Except for Tia, of course.  Screenshot-13432Maple even tried her luck with one of the strippers, once he was back in his clothes. Screenshot-13450‘Ever slept with a grandmother before?’Screenshot-13446Screenshot-13451 Maple could not understand why her pick-up did not work.Screenshot-13453Consequently, she drowned her sorrows by drinking one too many margaritas and passed out just before midnight.  Screenshot-13467‘I’m making a sandwich!’ Basil stated since he had not appeared at all in this chapter, and wanted to remind everyone that he was the heir of this generation.Screenshot-13149

Chapter 8.8

Chapter 8.8 Nice day for a white wedding

Maple and Cory decided to throw a winter wedding in their backyard, just to be different.  Being insanely rich, they were able to afford ice sculpted chairs and a cute DJ called Tom.Screenshot-11572To Maple’s annoyance, the paparazzi also made an appearance since she was a Z list celebrity in the media world.  Fortunately, she had a way to deal with such inconveniences.

‘Hmm, that’s funny,’ Maple spoke out loud, ‘I don’t remembering hiring a chubby and persistently annoying photographer for the wedding.’Screenshot-11564‘Bitch’Screenshot-11560Soon, the official photographer turned up, just in the nick of time for the happy couple to exchange vows and what not.Screenshot-11598As it turned out, Maple was not very photogenic.Screenshot-11595Yet Cory was.Screenshot-11599For this reason, Maple favoured the long distant shots, and the ones where she was not gawping like a demented pitbull.Screenshot-11600During the ceremony, Pistachio was, perhaps, a little bit too emotional.Screenshot-11593No one, apart from his wife (Nicole), found it endearing.Screenshot-11615‘Now we’re married, I guess this means you’re gonna start nagging me more often now,’ Cory joked.

Maple stared him down into a deathly silence.Screenshot-11580He then quickly kissed her before she could ask for a divorce.Screenshot-11606Screenshot-11614‘Cake time!’ Maple enthused, and quite rightly so.Screenshot-11621-editScreenshot-11622-editMaple was quite happily about to dig into her scrumptious slice of wedding cake, until Devon Hoff made his way over to her table, balancing his own equally slice of awesomeness on his old arthritic hand.Screenshot-11629-editMaple did her best to ignore him as he stood there, but he soon enough spoke up.Screenshot-11628-edit‘Room for one more?’ He asked, eyes hopeful.Screenshot-11626-editScreenshot-11627-edit‘Give it time, she’ll come running back to me,’ Devon confidently said, five minutes later, sat at a completely different table.Screenshot-11631-edit‘Sorry, old man,’ Almond asked, her mouth filled with delicious moist cake, ‘did you say something?’Screenshot-11630-editMeanwhile, since the DJ had decided to up and leave before the party was even over, the ever musically talented Rolo had taken over.Screenshot-11633-edit‘I’m making musics!’Screenshot-11635-editNow, it was a common misconception that aliens unitentionally invented dub-step when they first attempted to make contact with humans.  Naturally this was not the case, and as soon discovered, this type of “music” played at exceedingly high volumes was very damaging to an alien’s eardrums, and thus resulted in Orion passing out and almost freezing to death in the snow.Screenshot-11642-editFortunately, Tremayne had come outside to show off his new lover: the hairdryer.Screenshot-11643-edit‘Suppose I’d better do the just thing…’ Tremayne sighed, and proceeded to thaw Orion with Brenda the hairdryer.Screenshot-11644-editMinutes later, Orion had been defrosted.  Tremayne cheered for joy, well, until Orion snatched the hairdryer out from his hand, tossed it into the pool and swore at Tremayne for burning his perfect alien complexion, before marching off.Screenshot-11647-edit‘Why do I even bother?’ Tremayne sighed, then decided to head on inside for a piping hot shower.Screenshot-11648-editThat night, several guests decided to stay over, and by stay over, I mean they basically decided to stand on the front porch and wet themselves because they had temporarily lost the ability to navigate themselves down a straight path and leave the property through an open gate. Pistachio was one of these people, which was why he was a bit stinky the following morning.

After breakfast, he approached Rolo, who was about to practice his mad skills on the DJ booth.Screenshot-11650‘Soon the time will come for Maple to pass the legacy down to someone, and personally, I think you’re best suited,’ Pistachio confessed.  In all honesty, he did not entirely feel this way and just fancied witnessing a bit of drama between his nephews.

‘Couldn’t agree with you anymore, Unc,’ Rolo replied, finally glad that someone had recognised his great potential.  ‘Basil may be a smart guy, but he does have a tendency to steal things at times; not particularly a positive role model for the next generation, right?’Screenshot-11649They continued to bitch about Basil until Rolo eventually noticed that his younger brother had in fact been standing right by them for the entirety of their private conversation, which made things a little bit awkward.Screenshot-11651Naturally, this gave Basil the incentive to prove he could be a just a worthy heir as Rolo could be.  He already had some pretty good traits, minus his kleptomania, so all he needed was a baby vessel, and he had just the girl in mind.  Tia Aquino was a generic pretty young lady who was in a few of his classes at school.Screenshot-11652‘Wanna go out with me so I have a shot at owning all the fancy stuff in this house?’Screenshot-11674Tia accepted his proposition, partly out of pity, but mainly out of greed.Screenshot-11675‘This legacy is giving me a headache,’ rudley interrupted Devon.  In truth, he was feeling bitter that Maple had selected Cory over him and the realisation that he would never become a valued part of the Bailey legacy had become too much to bear.Screenshot-11668Thankfully for him, this generation was now finished, which meant it was unlikely he would ever be mentioned again, unless Basil is selected as the final heir, but that is totally up to the public!  This time the heir voting poll will be posted up once the university chapters have been posted up.
I’m on holiday between 5th October – 16th October, so the university chapters shall commence on my return 🙂  Much love.

Chapter 8.4

Chapter 8.4 Green Affairs

Life with the fridge people did not turn out as anticipated, so Whitney returned to reality and decided to focus on her own flesh and blood.Screenshot-10942This meant disposing of the things which did not fit this criteria.Screenshot-10988Screenshot-10991Fortunately, Tremayne booted up in time before he and Orion were recycled.  After that the two little misfits were inseparable.Screenshot-10951‘Enough of those misfits!  It’s Christmas, let’s partaaaay!’ Maple announced, ruining  the sentimental opening  to this chapter, and terrifying the poor blond guy standing in front of her.Screenshot-10912‘One of those misfits is my son,’ Sunnup said.  She had been invited to the party by Cory as he thought it would be a good idea for Orion to know that Maple was definitely not his mother, and also because Cory hoped he could participate in a bit of alien intercourse.Screenshot-10911Anyways, Maple had also invited a certain someone along to her party; Devon Hoff, the older brother of a guy she had dated during high school, and also one of her fellow work colleagues.Screenshot-10914This guy if you have to know (Morris Hoff).  Sadly he was married with children.Screenshot-10909Devon was not, thus making him a suitable man.
‘So, err, do you like stuff?’Screenshot-10936‘Devon, Maple is depressed with her current life and wants to bang you in attempt to feel better about herself,’ Almond translated.Screenshot-10937‘Erm, I’m not sure if I want that,’ Devon replied.Screenshot-10935‘It’s you or your brother, and in her current state she would definitely sink that low.’Screenshot-10939So, the following night, Maple ended up setting foot into Devon’s flat.Screenshot-10996‘You promise you won’t break up my brother’s family, right?’ Devon asked, body trembling in fear.Screenshot-11001‘As long as you promise to love me and take me away from my prison of a life!’ Maple chirped.Screenshot-10997‘Of course.’Screenshot-10998Spolier: He did not.Screenshot-11000A few months later, Cory was still being a doting father, despite circumstances had changed once more.Screenshot-11034Screenshot-11035Yes indeed, another little bundle of joy was on the way.Screenshot-11046Cory would have been thrilled, if it had not been for the fact he had not made woohoo with Maple for well over a year.Screenshot-11036Because of this, he had a small suspicion that this baby was not his.Screenshot-11038‘Ya think?’ Fudge sighed, before he continued to munch on the rotten food placed before him.Screenshot-11114Classy as ever.

Chapter 8.1

Chapter 8.1 – Bored yet?

‘It feels like we’ve been waiting here for around a month,’ Tremayne said, his cold robotic eyes staring blankly ahead. ‘Still, I can’t believe we’ve reached the 8th generation.  I thought things would have started to get tedious by this point, or that I would have tried to drown myself in the ocean again.’Screenshot-10580‘Err, don’t forget that Maple’s fronting this generation,’ Alice replied, her ghost face heavily weighing the regret of ever having a child with Ricky Bailey, no matter how damn sexy he had become.Screenshot-10581‘Alright, time to give my garage rapping skills a go!  So Solid Crew, don’t fail me now!’Screenshot-10568‘Twenty-one seconds, tut, tut, tut!’  Screenshot-10569‘If anyone needs me, I’ll be at the beach.’Screenshot-10582Things weren’t all bad.  Honest.  Somehow, Twix and Whitney had a high relationship level and spent most their elder days flirting with one another; a disturbing sight, some might say, but otherwise cute.Screenshot-10577‘Darling, your hand feels like sandpaper against my face.’ Screenshot-10578Pistachio, the youngest of their children, had joined the military career soon after graduating from University.  Unfortunately, he had to start from level one as he found out the hard way that a degree in Physical Education is only beneficial for the Athletic career path.  This would be the last time he took advice from the ghost of Jameson Bailey.Screenshot-10576Almond, the eldest, was already level five or so in her business career.  At this point, her long term boyfriend, Gary, had been living at the Bailey household for a few years.  She suggested that it was time they moved out and started a life on their own.Screenshot-10556‘But we get free everything here!’ Gary whined.            Screenshot-10558Almond kissed him to shut him up.Screenshot-10557And also secretly bought a new house for them to live in.    Screenshot-10624‘Alight!  Now Nicole can move in and sponge of the family funds!’Screenshot-10560And so she did, and Maple did not approve at all.  She often complained about this to Nicole when Pistachio was not around.Screenshot-10570‘Those hot-dogs aren’t cheap either!’Screenshot-10571‘I can’t wait to boot you out, along with my annoying little bro… Oh hey, Pistachio!’Screenshot-10572‘Gee, is that the time?’   Maple said, looking at her watch-less wrist.  ‘I’d best be off to watch that So Solid Crew documentary!’Screenshot-10573Meanwhile, Gnome Bunny wondered if anything interesting was actually going to happen this chapter.Screenshot-10584Yes, was the answer.  Cory had recently moved into the neighbourhood, something to do with his career.  He decided to visit Maple one day, just to mess with her emotions.Screenshot-10585Screenshot-10587‘Play it cool, Mape.’   Screenshot-10588‘….’Screenshot-10590‘So, are you here so we can have children and get married?’Screenshot-10594‘Sure….’ Cory winced as he felt Maple breathe heavily against his neck.Screenshot-10595‘Well, this generation is going to interesting,’ Chewie, the last remaining dog in the Bailey household, said.Screenshot-10575And perhaps he was right.

Despite being my older sister, Maple was someone I always had to keep an eye on.Screenshot-10017Most people found her tricky to read, but I was always aware when she was feeling troubled, which seemed to more than often whilst we were at Uni together.Screenshot-10016Screenshot-10025As much as she annoyed me sometimes, I couldn’t help feeling worried. Screenshot-10026Gary and I were still going strong, I felt lucky to have him as my rock.  I could sense Maple wanted to experience the same sort of thing, however her luck with guys never seemed to last.Screenshot-9871One day, when we were gaming on the computers in the comic book shop, I came up with a valid suggestion.Screenshot-10041‘Ever thought about online dating?’Screenshot-10043‘F*** off, Almond.’Screenshot-10042So that’s when Plan B came into play, which I devised whilst working on my dissertation.Screenshot-9967The plan went live on the night of my graduation, during a costume party I had persuaded Maple to arrange.  By the time I had returned home, after some celebratory drinks with a few fellow graduates, the house was fairly quiet apart from a few people still lingering in the kitchen.  Maple wasn’t anywhere in sight, and nor was Cory, the guy she fancied like mad, which I could only assume was a good thing.Screenshot-10117As my eyes scanned the bookshelf for a good intellectual book to curl up on the sofa with before bed, I couldn’t help but gloat to myself at how much of an awesome match maker I was.

‘Almond, slight problem.’ Maple’s voice interrupted my thoughts.  In that single moment, my pride came crashing down and was stamped on as she told me what had occurred whilst I’d been out downing vodka and cranberries.Screenshot-10114‘I bumped into Cory in the bathroom,’ Maple spoke in a haunted tone.  My heart still jumped in excitement.  They hadn’t properly interacted since their one night stand several months ago- Cory was usually quick to leave the room if she had entered it.  This was why I hoped this party would force them back together, particularly by deliberately barricading off the downstairs bathroom so everyone would be forced to use the one upstairs, or least help them made amends.Screenshot-10116Apparently Maple had outright confessed to Cory that they should get over their drunken blunder and start their friendship anew.  Cory agreed, a little too quickly according to Maple.Screenshot-10106Then, she stepped in to hug him, a way to seal the deal, she explained.  That was when he pushed her away, much to her dismay.Screenshot-10108‘I asked him what was wrong.’Screenshot-10110‘The expression on his face said it all,’ Maple sighed.Screenshot-10113‘He had changed his mind in the space of three seconds.  Apparently even the thought of being friends is weird after what happened.  Also, he admitted that I’m not his type.’Screenshot-10112I stood there dumbfounded.  I didn’t understand how things had backfired so spectacularly.  Cory had seemed enthusiastic about attending the party when I had invited him on Maple’s behalf .Screenshot-10120Suddenly, everything clicked into place and I felt stupid for not realising the truth sooner.  I didn’t have the heart to explain it all to Maple, but it was quite obvious who Cory’s type was.Screenshot-10119‘Oh, and another thing…’ Maple spoke cautiously. ‘I’ve kind of broken one of the sinks in the bathroom.’Screenshot-10115And so I spent the early hours of the morning fixing that sink to avoid us being fined by the University, and possibly having my degree revoked. Screenshot-10013After that night I made a promise that the sink would be the last thing I would fix for Maple.  Even though she was my sister, I knew it would be impossible to keep trying to repair her broken relationships.  That job was purely down to her.

Almond’s Credentials (Part 1)

Almond’s Credentials (Part 1)

Knowledge was something I had always craved, which was why I was so excited to go off to University, just like my ancestors had done.  Being the first of my siblings to attend was also an achievement but mainly down to Maple unfortunately failing her final year at college, twice, thus having to stay behind until she would eventually pass.

Due to the increase of students at Simstate University, a brand new hall of residence had been built; it’s modern appeal made a change from the vintage style halls that had plagued the campus since goodness knows when.Screenshot-9797I settled in swiftly and even gave football a small try with one of my roommates.Screenshot-9802Despite his skinny build, he was a brilliant athlete and quite possibly could have given my brother a run for his money.Screenshot-9804Over the next few months I did my best to work and study hard.Screenshot-9836However, distractions soon took shape in the form of a guy called Gary Clyde, a second year Fine Arts student whom worked part-time around the campus as a magician.Screenshot-9917The fact he managed his own mini-business and schedule instantly appealed to me, and soon enough I was chatting to him about profits and margins instead of drinking myself stupid and dancing provocatively, like most other students.Screenshot-9915In classes, my concentration soon started to diminish.Screenshot-9835Things soon got heated after Gary confessed his attraction for me         Screenshot-9819Screenshot-9820Screenshot-9817And that’s when I started to panic.  I couldn’t afford to mess up my degree, but at the same time I didn’t want to throw a guy like Gary away.Screenshot-9834In the end, I turned to my love guru roommate, Mimi and expressed my woes.Screenshot-9825‘Aren’t you supposed to be the smart one?  You can still date Gary and get a decent degree; just don’t burn the candle at both ends.’Screenshot-9826‘I guess,’ I sighed, ‘it’s just the uncertainty of things that’s worrying me.’     Screenshot-9822‘That’s the point of life, hun, no one truly knows what’s going to happen.  Anyway, I’ll snap him up if  don’t, so hop to it.’Screenshot-9827The next time I saw Gary, I wasted no time reciprocating his feelings.Screenshot-9845Screenshot-9844His warm smile literally melted my heart, and I realised, to an extent, I still had control over my future and what I wanted to achieve.  Juggling a relationship with a career, it wouldn’t be at all easy, but if my own parents had managed it then I knew I could too.Screenshot-9840After that, I learnt how to relax and take things easy, whilst maintaining a decent attendance record and assessment grades.  Most my ancestors had managed it after all, so what did I have left to fear?Screenshot-9847Oh, that’s right, Maple!

Chapter 7.10

Chapter 7.10 If you don’t succeed, maybe you should give up

The years flew on by, at least quick enough for Pistachio to become a teenager.Screenshot-9552He possessed a determined nature, which meant he constantly spent his hours trying to master a single chin-up.    Screenshot-9549‘Ngh!’ Screenshot-9553‘Almost there!’Screenshot-9554The main thing was that he was a trier, and that was all his parents could ask for, particularly since he hoped to join the military one day.Screenshot-9552Almond also possessed a similar nature since she was interested in joining the business career once she was an adult.Screenshot-9558She had the hots for a guy in her class called Matt.  Rumour had it, his eyebrows had their own personalities.Screenshot-9557Unfortunately, none of them were interested in Almond.Screenshot-9560Since it was the final main chapter in this generation, Ewok decided it was a good enough time to kick the bucket.Screenshot-9637She was excited to see Snowy again, and also gain the ability to fly.Screenshot-9641The Grim Reaper happily accepted her request and gave her Peter Pan-like powers.Screenshot-9642It was all well and good, until she noticed that there was a ceiling above her, and that Grimmy had “forgotten” to open up the portal to the other realm.

‘Craaaap!’Screenshot-9643A few days later, and a lot of scrubbing blood off the ceiling, the realisation of getting old hit Twix hard.Screenshot-9572‘I’m getting old.’  Screenshot-9573Sadly, as it was his birthday, there was not much that could be done.Screenshot-9596Reluctantly, he blew out his candles and prayed he still had a few more years left in him.Screenshot-9597Whitney, who loved birthday cake perhaps a little bit too much, cleaned up the table in her own special fashion the following morning.Screenshot-9562Naturally, Ricky Bailey did not approve.Screenshot-9569As for Maple, she did not care as she saw the real life Milky Bar Kid at school the very same day and decided after this that she had to pursue a career in the film industry.Screenshot-9670Twix did not give too much of a damn either as he managed to reach his life-time wish and cooked up an awesome curry to celebrate.  All in all, it was a pleasant generation.Screenshot-9663Right, same as last time, the voting poll will be posted up before the usual University bonus chapters.  This worked well with the previous generation so thought it’d be a good idea to keep it this way 🙂  There’s also a 7 or so day age gap between Maple and Pistachio, so it makes sense really.   Also, like last time, the voting poll will remain up for a week or two, during this time Maple’s and possibly Almond’s University chapters will be posted up.  After that, once the winner is announced, Pistachio’s bonus chapters will be uploaded, then we will proceed with Generation 8!

The poll will emerge soon.  Please keep your eyes peeled 😉 x x x

             

Chapter 7.9

Chapter 7.9 Ghost party

Like the song, Snowy had always believed he could fly, and one day this wish was granted.Screenshot-8978Unfortunately, this was only because he had died.Screenshot-8977Ewok was not a happy dog, she had hoped to at least have another litter with his mismatched companion before he glided off to the doggy pound in the sky. Screenshot-8974Pistachio dealt with the grief of Snowy’s death by exercising harder than ever in a bid that a healthy lifestyle would help him live forever, much like his Great-Uncle Earl (almost) had.Screenshot-9434Almond coped with things by eating pizza since it is a well known fact that pizza cures a majority of problems.Screenshot-9479‘Hey, Dad, can I invite some people over tonight for a sleepover?  It’ll really help take my mind of, you know, Snowy’s death.’
