Chapter 9.4

Chapter 9.4 Worst Wedding Ever

The years went by quickly.  Soon Basil was celebrating some sort of landmark birthday.Screenshot-13920Knowing that there would be cake, Orion and Rolo turned up to celebrate.  Screenshot-13929Their family also tagged along.  Here is a snapshot of Orion’s son, Kraig.  Yes, Orion and Melanie were too cool to name him ‘Craig’.  Screenshot-13952Rolo also had a son, who quite honestly looked a bit gawky.  His name was Irwin though, so what did you expect?Screenshot-13931Chilli enjoyed missing with him, having a sense of humour and all.   Screenshot-13932Oh yes, Chilli had grown up into a cute kid.  No doubt he had inherited the best genetics from his parents.  Would he turn into a good looking teenager?  Only time would tell.Screenshot-13873He also loved baking muffins.Screenshot-13844And he was into painting random things with neon paint.Screenshot-13864They were not the most masculine of activities, but Chilli enjoyed them so that was all that mattered.     Screenshot-13862Despite he thought he son was rather awesome, Basil secretly enjoyed spending time with Bongo more than hanging out with Chilli.Screenshot-13867His career as a thief meant that the police often sniffed around his house, so having a big dog meant that they kept their distance from the house, scared they would get their faces gnawed off.  Screenshot-13870‘Hey, isn’t it about time we got married?’ Tia asked one night, realising that this was Chapter 9.4.

‘I suppose it is,’ Basil agreed, happy to jump at any opportunity where he could dress up like a dapper old penguin.Screenshot-13883And so, a few weeks later, Tia donned her wedding gown – which Basil had stolen from Kate Middleton- and looked forward to finally becoming a Bailey.Screenshot-14005Outside, Rolo thought it would be hilarious to throw a water balloon at Basil’s freshly ironed wedding suit.  Screenshot-14013For a moment, it looked like Basil wanted to punch Rolo in the face, but then he started to laugh hysterically.  Naturally this freaked Rolo out a bit since he was certain he had crossed the line with his butch little brother.Screenshot-14015‘Oh you, always the prankster,’ Basil chuckled.  Rolo started to laugh along, cautiously at first.    Screenshot-14014‘Haha, yeah, that’s me,’ Rolo chortled along, ‘Say, how about we…’

‘Haha… Get out of my house,’ Basil said bluntly. Screenshot-14016Meanwhile, by the buffet table, Maple stood around bored out of her mind.  For once she was not in the limelight, and she had no husband or man in general to make out with to pass the time.Screenshot-14031She pondered what she could do to liven things up and become the center of attention. Screenshot-14032‘I suppose there’s one thing,’ Maple muttered out loud.   Screenshot-14033Screenshot-14035    Screenshot-14038‘Yep, this will work nicely.’Screenshot-14051‘Really?!  It wasn’t even your time,’ The Grim Reaper said. ‘How did you even… You know what, I don’t actually care.’  Screenshot-14062Tia desperately tried to win back the attention of their wedding guests so she could, you know, actually get married to Basil, however, her attempt was in vain sadly.Screenshot-14068‘So, Maple, any last words or requests?’ Old Grimmy asked.      Screenshot-14071‘Well, now that you mention it…’Screenshot-14067THREE HOURS LATER

‘Ok, I’m bored now.’Screenshot-14075 Screenshot-14074  Screenshot-14076And so, Maple was whisked away into her resting place, and the wedding was pretty much over before it had even started.Screenshot-14077‘Only your Grandmother would go to the extremes of dying at a wedding to become the star attraction,’ Tia sighed to Chilli once the commotion had died down.Screenshot-14089‘Indeed. Well done for ruining the day, Maple,’ the Graduation Gnome said, giving her selfish actions a solid thumbs up.     Screenshot-14092‘I’m sure your wedding would have just been generic and boring,’ Chilli replied as he munched on his chilli con carne.  Screenshot-14088Tia made a mental note to poison his pack lunch on Monday.Screenshot-14086

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 8.7

Chapter 8.7  Damn Technology

A few months later, after fixing the main household computer, Basil had a birthday.Screenshot-11468Even his estranged father made an appearance, mainly for the cake side of things.Screenshot-11474‘See, I told you he’d turned up once we paid him!’ Maple laughed.Screenshot-11490Young Basil grew up into a not too bad looking teenager, meaning that he fortunately had inherited more of his father’s genetics than his mother’s.Screenshot-11496‘Why am I being blamed for the downfall of the Bailey genetics?’ Whitney complained, to no one in particular.  ‘If anything, you should be thankful that my genes eliminated the Mika Moore moose nose.’Screenshot-11437However, as it turned out, her input was no longer valid in this legacy.

‘Oh come on!’Screenshot-11439‘Erm, so, hey there, Death, fancy sparing my life like you did with my husband?’Screenshot-11452The Grim Reaper loudly cleared his throat, eyes gesturing down to the floor. Screenshot-11453Whitney quickly got the hint.Screenshot-11451‘Oh please spare my soul, wonderful great one!’ Screenshot-11449‘Hmm, let me think.’Screenshot-11450Screenshot-11454Once the deed was done, old Grimmy made a beeline for the Bailey library.Screenshot-11459‘Now, time for some Game of Thrones.  I wonder if Ned Stark will heroically save the day?’Screenshot-11462Meanwhile, outside, Maple and Cory were too busy making out to realise Whitney had died.  Funnily enough, since they were getting old, they were scared of dying alone, which is the reason why they had decided to give things another go.Screenshot-11518‘I love you, Mape,’ Corry said, his voice sending warm flutters down Maple’s spine.Screenshot-11524‘Let me show you how much,’ he added.Screenshot-11525Maple was speechless when he whipped it out.Screenshot-11529‘Will you marry me, partly so I can get rid of my ridiculous surname?’Screenshot-11530For what seemed like several minutes, Maple stared at the sparkly retina-burning ring in awe.  She honestly never thought she would marry anyone during her generation.   Screenshot-11531‘Oh, go on then!’ Maple finally confirmed, after deciding to play things cool, rather than start crying and beg for him to wed her then and there.Screenshot-11534And so, they were engaged and happy.Screenshot-11540Although deep down inside, Cory would never forgive for having another man’s child and would always resent Basil’s existence somewhat.Screenshot-11507The children were not too happy when they heard about their engagement.  Basil was particularly annoyed because he would have preferred for Maple to marry his biological father, despite the old man was on his last legs.Screenshot-11515As for Orion, he coped by taking a hell of a lot of space heroin and almost overdosed.Screenshot-11542All in all, it was a standard week in the Bailey household.

 

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 7.8

Chapter 7.8 Backup children

Maple soon became obsessed with boys.Screenshot-9321‘Dad, can you get pregnant without having sex?  I may have an issue otherwise…’Screenshot-9440The stupidity of his eldest daughter frustrated him more than it worried him.Screenshot-9446Twix soon swiftly remembered that he had other children with potential, thus decided his time was best spent developing them into well-rounded individuals.Screenshot-9284His main focus was Pistachio, who had a clear interest in fitness and Pokemon.  The young boy was hoping to pursue some form of physical career, such as the military or as an athlete.Screenshot-9297Whitney did her best to ensure that Pistachio would achieve his lifetime goal.Screenshot-9329‘You may need to consider cutting down on eating cake.’  Whitney tried to break the news to him as gently as she could.Screenshot-9330‘Hell no!’ Pistachio said.Screenshot-9332However, he had no choice in the matter.

‘I sure can’t wait to dig into these delicious pancakes, mmm!’ Almond teased whilst her younger brother wrote an essay based on nutrition and fitness.Screenshot-9344‘God dammit I hate you,’ Pistachio muttered.  Screenshot-9342Soon enough, it was Almond’s birthday and the focus of the chapter shifted to her.Screenshot-9362She grew up to be rather hot, in comparison to Maple anyway.Screenshot-9386In all honesty, it was not a difficult feat.Screenshot-9315The girls were excited when Prom time rolled around, despite neither of them had dates.  Almond chose not to, whilst Maple had scared away pretty much every guy she knew.Screenshot-9402Somehow, Maple managed to look somewhat decent.  Make-up was wondrous thing it seemed.Screenshot-9401Almond opted for Taylor Swift style hair and a cute red dress.Screenshot-9396‘I can’t wait to  dress up all pretty like you for my prom,’ Pistachio stated.Screenshot-9398Screenshot-9399It was at this point that the girls realised that their younger brother may end up becoming a bit of a cross dresser in the years to come.  They decided to keep this between themselves for the time being, and also made sure to put locks on their wardrobes, just in-case.Screenshot-9403

Chapter 7.7

Chapter 7.7 Not so good at science

By the time Pistachio was a toddler, Twix was smitten and forgot all about the reasons why he’d been upset about his son’s birth.Screenshot-9203He was also proud of Almond, the middle child.Screenshot-9163She had turned out to be a bit of a genius and was excellent at chess and a majority of other logic based games.Screenshot-9191Unfortunately, she was not so good at science.Screenshot-9204Speaking of science, both Twix and Whitney were still attempting to reach their lifetime goals by pursuing success in the very same career path.  In all honesty, it was not going well for either of them.Screenshot-9257At some point, Twix and Whitney allowed Maple and Almond to host a sleepover party.  Hershey and Allyson’s oldest child, Horace, was also invited since they were usually too busy out partying to look after him properly.  Horace’s younger brother, Mitchell, had been adopted by the family cat a few years back.  Anyone that dared to go near him got severely scratched in the face.Screenshot-9150The sleepover was pretty standard; the children sat and stood around looking bored, some did their homework whilst others ate salad.Screenshot-9157Naturally, it was decided that the best place to sleep was in the kitchen / dining room area – forget the massive living room on the other side of the house.Screenshot-9164Screenshot-9167Twix got absolutely no sleep since the children had used their bodies as weapons to barricade him in. Screenshot-9168Horace also had little sleep.  Mainly because he was too busy trying to take pictures of the ghosts who came out to play that night.Screenshot-9176Poor Pippy was far from amused.Screenshot-9174‘Sod off you little turd.’Screenshot-9175The following morning, Horace boast to Almond about interacting with one of their ancestors.  Almond did her best to feign interest, but in reality she actually did not really like Horace.Screenshot-9179As Maple approached her teenage years, Twix decided this was the best time to try and butter her up.Screenshot-9182He did this by treating her to pizza and telling her just how special she was to him and how she should not rush into any relationships until she was in her late forties.Screenshot-9185Maple seemed to buy into this.Screenshot-9184That was until Whitney decided to pull up a chair and join in.      Screenshot-9186‘My dad brought me pizza and tried to put me off boys,’ Whitney revealed, mumbling her words through a mouthful of pizza.  ‘I lost my virginity the following day.’  

A few minutes later, Twix broke down in tears.Screenshot-9189And so, Maple celebrated another birthday which people would soon completely forget about.Screenshot-9273She blossomed into a lovesick teenager who would no doubt experience several pregnancy scares over the next few years.Screenshot-9301Cointreau, who still had a thing against inferior genetics, did not approve and hoped strongly that Maple would not get picked to front the next generation.Screenshot-9169

Chapter 7.6

Chapter 7.6  Yes, you should be embarrassed

Before long, it was time for Maple to grow up into a child.Screenshot-9102She did not turn out too bad; at least it was apparent that she had not inherited the historic Mika nose, thanks to Whitney.Screenshot-9111Almond also grew up to her next life stage and looked like a typical Bailey with her tanned complexion and brown hair, much to Ghost Cointreau’s satisfaction.Screenshot-9120Maple started to study hard at school, upon realising that she may not end up being the cute one of this generation.Screenshot-9132In the meantime, Almond continued to be cute and swiftly learned all the necessary toddler skills.Screenshot-9098Even Whitney found the time to help; a miracle considering she was on season 5 of Breaking Bad and was desperate to know how it was all going to end.Screenshot-9097Tremayne was even allowed to pitch in and opted to teach Almond how to talk, despite the fact that his robotic voice was hard enough for an adult to understand, let alone a toddler.Screenshot-9136Somehow, Almond picked up on things quickly and soon was speaking more coherently than Tremayne, much to his embarrassment.  The icing on the cake was when Almond started to mock his accent and jerky mannerisms.Screenshot-9138Following this, there was no doubt in Twix’s mind that Almond was going to grow up to be a genius.  Boy was he proud.Screenshot-9088Meanwhile, Whitney, who was heavily pregnant decided it was time to give the dogs their annual bath, instead of doing something practical, like, say, work on raising her skill points.Screenshot-9130Naturally, she fell into labour just as she was about to sit down to eat her dinner.Screenshot-9135At least it was all worthwhile.  She strolled out of hospital with a bonny baby boy, who she was certain was hers.Screenshot-9140It seemed that Whitney was the only one who was all smiles during the taxi ride home.  Twix was not as thrilled.  A boy had sounded like a great idea at the time, but now Twix realised that there was a strong possibility his son would turn out more masculine than him within the next five or so years.Screenshot-9142Because of this, Whitney primarily cared for baby Pistachio during the first few years of his life.Screenshot-9146Tremayne helped out too- mainly because Pistachio was unable to answer back to him and undermine him, at least for the time being.Screenshot-9190 

Chapter 7.5

Chapter 7.5  The cake and the bees

Sometime after the wedding, Whitney fell pregnant.Screenshot-8930This was mainly because Twix had not been taught the correct concept of the birds and the bees.Screenshot-8902Hershey, who was a little bit annoyed that Twix had beaten him to accomplishing something, quickly followed suit and got Allyson knocked up, since obviously he was unable to impregnate Whitney.Screenshot-8924Twix didn’t really want an additional individual family member to look after, but unfortunately kicking Tremayne out was not an option since he was still the breadwinner of the household.  Therefore, Twix gave Hershey a handful of money so he could buy the mansion next door and live there with Allyson.Screenshot-8934In time, Whitney gave birth to Maple.     Screenshot-8947Both Twix and Whitney were so thrilled.  They just couldn’t wait for all those sleepless nights and dirty nappies.Screenshot-8948Whitney dove straight into motherhood and appeared to be a natural.  Screenshot-8955Screenshot-8956By natural, she just pretty much left Tremayne to do all the dirty work.Screenshot-8958Not that he minded.  Clearly Cointreau and Jeffrey had forgotten to warn Twix about his mishaps with children during the last generation.Screenshot-8959Fortunately, Twix found out after reading through Cointreau’s secret journal and politely told Tremayne to stay the hell away from his children.   Screenshot-8991At first, Twix was not sure how to take care of Maple.   Screenshot-8982But after reading a few baby books, he became a pro.  The easy thing to remember was that babies were not edible, even if they were named after pleasant things.Screenshot-8980And so, Maple grew up to be a cute little toddler with a clear mixture of her parents genetics.Screenshot-9048Twix relished spending time with her, being a family man and all that jazz.Screenshot-9051Soon enough, Whitney found out she was expecting another child.  By this point Twix knew about the birds and the bees, so clearly he had been aware of the consequences this time around.Screenshot-8990A couple of months down the line, Twix celebrated some kind of birthday, somewhere between the age of 30 and 40.Screenshot-9011Surprisingly, all his siblings decided to show up, although this was only for the cake.   Screenshot-9016Allyson made an appearance too, purely because she knew she looked slim compared to pregnant Whitney so wanted as many photos as possible taken standing next to her.Screenshot-9027Shortly after the celebrations, Whitney went into labour.Screenshot-9058Yet another baby girl was born, whom was named Almond.  Although they adored her, Twix and Whitney hoped that their next, and last, baby would be a boy seeing as it had been proven that they make easier heirs. Screenshot-9066‘You know it!’ Fudge said, who has mastered the arts of awesomeness long ago and was now working on becoming ultra-awesome, a feat that not many had ever accomplished in life or death.Screenshot-8997

Chapter 7.4

Chapter 7.4 Double team

As promised, Hershey granted his older brother the air-time he deserved.  Twix, being a smart cookie, utilized this time wisely and decided to take Whitney to a nearby lake; not to drown her, but to pop the question.Screenshot-8779After much fumbling, he managed to open up the box and reveal the ultra sparkly engagement ring to Whitney, who had been waiting for his proposal pretty much since the day Hershey had proposed to Allyson.Screenshot-8782Still, she managed to feign her surprise, and all in all, it was a pleasant engagement.Screenshot-8786Screenshot-8789‘I like sparkly things,’ Whitney stated.  She stood there staring at her engagement ring for the next five hours.  Twix got bored after two hours and left her to it.Screenshot-8787In the end, Twix and Hershey ended up having a double wedding.  It was a practical idea considering how long wedding parties seem to take in the Sim world.Screenshot-8818As expected, they wedded in the same location Cointreau and Jeffrey had, mainly because the scenery was fabulous for photographs.  Naturally, Twix and Whitney were first to exchange vows, being the stars of this generation and all (well, for the time being).Screenshot-8831‘Check us out, doing adult stuff!’Screenshot-8826Aero was the only family member who held a small trace of resentment because he wished he could of had a fancy wedding.Screenshot-8839Instead, all he got was a crappy off-camera notification.Aero and Adrianne marriedWho this “close friend” was, no one knew, not even Aero.Screenshot-8837Still, it was a beautiful ceremony.  Screenshot-8843And most importantly, there was cake.Screenshot-8852Earl, who was the only one still alive from generation 6, actually only showed up because of this.Screenshot-8858Oh, and Allyson almost got married to the wrong guy, who happened to be Samuel McNeil.Screenshot-8859He had split up with Bounty a few months ago, after finally finding out that she had deliberately stopped taking her contraceptive pill.Screenshot-8863Fortunately, Hershey stepped in just in time and told Samuel where to stick it.    Screenshot-8867And so, they were married and all were happy.Screenshot-8875Screenshot-8876Screenshot-8873Well, all except for Tremayne as he managed to miss the weddings by -you guessed it- shorting-out after trying to down a bottle of tequila.Screenshot-8900  

Chapter 6.11

Chapter 6.11 Poor Pencil

It was not long before Cointreau and Jeffery started to get wrinkles and all that jazz.  Still, Cointreau had ways to keep the passion going between them.

‘Honey, I’m not working today…’ Jeffery muttered, adverting eye contact with his wife.

‘I don’t care.  Put it on or I’ll poison one of our children.’Screenshot-7042Cointreau sure did know how to blackmail her husband into wearing his medical career uniform, purely for her own pleasure.  This was pretty much an everyday occurrence, much to the dismay of everyone else in the family.Screenshot-7044Twix masked out his parents’ strange fetishes by focusing on the things he loved the most, which included making potions and, more recently, camp night-time gardening.Screenshot-7116Screenshot-7158Screenshot-7159Since he was the only genius child (at this point of the legacy), his other siblings often turned to him for advice.

‘So, I’ve got a bit of a pain in my thigh, and I can’t find my pencil… Any thoughts?’Screenshot-7220Screenshot-7218‘Twix, I think she has…’Screenshot-7021 ‘Err, can’t say I can see anything wrong.  Looks fine to me.’Screenshot-7215Soon enough, it was Aero’s birthday and he was about to celebrate his glorious transition into young adult-hood; one stage closer to death effectively.Screenshot-7057‘Perhaps I’ll gain a useful trait,’ Aero thought.Screenshot-7051Unfortunately, this was not the case.Aero Good TraitScreenshot-7086A few days later, the family threw a pool party for Hershey’s birthday.  Here are two unnecessary half-naked shots of Aero and Twix relaxing on pool floats.Screenshot-7089Screenshot-7092All in all this was a grand day since there was cake involved.Screenshot-7108And Hershey was obviously excited about becoming a teenager since he would be allowed to tamper with more dangerous stuff on his workbench.Screenshot-7109Despite receiving bushy eyebrows, Hershey did not look too shabby, although due to constantly peering at his reflection in the scrap metal he had collected over the years, he grew up to become a bit of a snob.Screenshot-7118Sadly, Hershey’s thirteenth birthday was not a great experience for Yorkie.  Somehow, a larger dog had gatecrashed the party and decided to steal Yorkie’s stuff.Screenshot-7097Yorkie would have done something about it, but as the dog was more than double his size he decided it would be best not to try and be a hero.  That, and he was certain the other dog had drunk one too many vodkas.Screenshot-7098The months continued to fly by, and soon enough it was time for Aero to graduate from sixth form college.Screenshot-7122He decided to drive his siblings to the town hall for his graduation ceremony.  Cointreau and Jefferey insisted they would make they own way there purely based on the fact that Aero did not have an actual driver’s licence.  Screenshot-7126Bounty was secretly a little bit jealous of her brother’s mortar board hat and hoped that the one she would wear on her graduation would look just as good on her.Screenshot-7129By around nightfall, Aero finally managed to leave the graduation hall with his diploma despite he was hungry, exhausted and desperate for the toilet.Screenshot-7137The following morning he started the fairly simple University entrance procedure, where upon he was informed he would have to increase his skills to gain the maximum amount of free credits for his chosen degree.Screenshot-7164Poor Admiral the gnome was devastated about the prospect of the first of the children heading off to University because he knew this would mean Aero would get a taste for alcohol, thus jeopardizing Admiral’s steadily growing wine collection.  This was a very sad time for him indeed.Screenshot-7154
