Chapter 9.4 Worst Wedding Ever
The years went by quickly. Soon Basil was celebrating some sort of landmark birthday.Knowing that there would be cake, Orion and Rolo turned up to celebrate. Their family also tagged along. Here is a snapshot of Orion’s son, Kraig. Yes, Orion and Melanie were too cool to name him ‘Craig’. Rolo also had a son, who quite honestly looked a bit gawky. His name was Irwin though, so what did you expect?Chilli enjoyed missing with him, having a sense of humour and all. Oh 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.He also loved baking muffins.And he was into painting random things with neon paint.They were not the most masculine of activities, but Chilli enjoyed them so that was all that mattered. Despite he thought he son was rather awesome, Basil secretly enjoyed spending time with Bongo more than hanging out with Chilli.His 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. ‘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.And 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.Outside, Rolo thought it would be hilarious to throw a water balloon at Basil’s freshly ironed wedding suit. For 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.‘Oh you, always the prankster,’ Basil chuckled. Rolo started to laugh along, cautiously at first. ‘Haha, yeah, that’s me,’ Rolo chortled along, ‘Say, how about we…’
‘Haha… Get out of my house,’ Basil said bluntly. Meanwhile, 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.She pondered what she could do to liven things up and become the center of attention. ‘I suppose there’s one thing,’ Maple muttered out loud. ‘Yep, this will work nicely.’‘Really?! It wasn’t even your time,’ The Grim Reaper said. ‘How did you even… You know what, I don’t actually care.’ Tia 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.‘So, Maple, any last words or requests?’ Old Grimmy asked. ‘Well, now that you mention it…’THREE HOURS LATER
‘Ok, I’m bored now.’ And so, Maple was whisked away into her resting place, and the wedding was pretty much over before it had even started.‘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.‘Indeed. Well done for ruining the day, Maple,’ the Graduation Gnome said, giving her selfish actions a solid thumbs up. ‘I’m sure your wedding would have just been generic and boring,’ Chilli replied as he munched on his chilli con carne. Tia made a mental note to poison his pack lunch on Monday.‘
