Tis rather delicious

Chapter 9.1

Chapter 9.1 – Suck it up

Basil and Tia settled quickly into the next generation.  This had nothing to do with the fact their creator wanted to get the legacy completed as soon as possible.Screenshot-13146Orion had moved out after proposing to Melanie and ensured they ended up in a house on the far side of town so that they could escape from the insanity of the Baileys.Screenshot-12728Shortly after, Rolo and Niki got engaged and had moved out, only to just move into the massive house next door, where Hershey, Twix’s brother, had once lived.Screenshot-13174Oh, and speaking of Twix, he had died soon after Rolo had gone off to University.  The Grim Reaper had offered him lots of cake and science related things in exchange for his physical body and organs.  Naturally it was an offer he couldn’t pass up.Screenshot-11718On the bright side, soon after graduating for Uni, Basil decided to adopt a cute little puppy whom they named Bongo since the Baileys were quite keen on the tropical drink called Um Bongo, which had the most catchiest advert in all of existence.Screenshot-13277Unlike the previous dog owners in this legacy, Basil actually interacted with Bongo on a regular basis.  This kept them both amused for hours, much to Tia’s relief.Screenshot-13216Maple was still alive and kicking.  Bored of being a famous director, she attempted to forge a singing career.Screenshot-13159Sadly, her singing was as bad as her rapping, and Cory made his opinion on this matter very clear.Screenshot-13163‘You suck!’Screenshot-13161As for Tremayne, the ever neglected running joke of the legacy, he tried to prove himself useful by becoming Tia’s personal trainer.  It did make sense since she was eager to become an astronaut, just like he had been for the last few hundred years.  Screenshot-13165‘This weight is too heavy!’ Tia screamed as her muscles started to break and snap under the strain of the iron. It was clear that Tremayne still did not understand that humans were unable to lift as much as a robot.Screenshot-13166‘Suck it up, Princess!’ Tremayne replied, before upping the kilograms once more.   Screenshot-13167Once Tia had recovered from her horrific injuries, Basil decided to take her out for a lovely romantic meal, partly in the hope he would get some woohoo later on, but mainly to help with speeding the final generation on slightly.Screenshot-13217And so, after their delicious noms, they danced randomly on the rooftop terrace to some fancy 1950s music.Screenshot-13230When Basil suddenly dropped to one knee, Tia was concerned thinking he had sprained his leg whilst they had been doing ‘the twist’.Screenshot-13234Basil then whipped it out.  Then, he tugged a jewelry box out from his pocket  and flicked it open.Screenshot-13253‘Let’s get married and make a beautiful child.  Perhaps not quite in that order since winter is coming and we don’t want to copy my mum by having a winter wedding!’Screenshot-13256‘Yey!’ Was all Tia could say, overwhelmed at the prospect of marrying into an ultra rich family.  Not that she was a gold digger or anything…Screenshot-13255Thus, Basil fixed the ring onto Tia’s finger so she could never remove it, or leave him against his will.Screenshot-13260‘So shiny!’Screenshot-13268And, like with all the other previous proposals over the last several generations, the couple fell into a warm and loving embrace, relishing the last few moments where they would not want to kill each other.Screenshot-13270Screenshot-13272

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.
