Time passed, and Lance started to wonder if he was being just the teeniest bit of a jerk about Layla’s flirting.
One day, while she was out working in her garden, he decided it was time to make amends.
He loved her more now than he had the day he married her, and he hoped she could see his ranting and raving for what it was — fear that he would lose her.
When Layla returned home from work that day, Lance had arranged for a surprise.
It was her birthday, and he hadn’t forgotten.
(Not a bad age transition. I left her pretty much as she was.)
He took her on a second honeymoon back to Egypt, where they rocked the campsite.
(In case you can’t tell from the picture, whoohoo in tents causes the tent to jump up and dance around :). )
It had been a very long time since they’d been able to spend so much time with each other, one-on-one.
When they returned home, Lance built one last monument to his travel days and hung up his adventuring hat. It was time to spend more time with his family. Long past time.
And of course he and Layla could rock things a little closer to home too.
(So, I hadn’t *intended* for this to be Lance’s last vacation, but this one turned out to be just too weird. When I reset the town, the vacation destinations were reset as well. Not only are all Lance’s quests reset to the beginning, but there’s a young version of Layla wandering around in Egypt. Creepy…)
