5.6 Chills

It was morning, and Ghost was up to his favorite hobby.

The temperature dropped suddenly in the night. Avalon was setting a new low temperature record. Even Charles and Veronica, who were very good at keeping each other warm, were starting to feel it.

Sky had been out late with Leah again, but she slept poorly. She felt like her insides were tying themselves into knots. There was no point to trying to sleep longer, so she might as well take the opportunity to paint the sunrise.

“This frost chills all the way to my bones!” Veronica growled a she got up, also earlier than she had intended.

“Well, you *are* getting older,” Charles pointed out. “You bones probably chill a lot easier than they used to.” His eyes twinkled as he said it. Charles never really felt the cold himself.

“I am NOT getting older!” Veronica declared. “I can take on anything I could when I was 20. I dare you to let me prove it to yoouuueerrg.” The last word was hard to make out over the chattering of her teeth.

Then something unexpected happened. Veronica stopped shivering. In fact, she stopped moving altogether.

“What the–” she said in a strained voice.

KEEE-RUNK! Over she fell, landing on the frost-hardened ground with a thunk.

“Are you all right?” Charles asked. “Did you freeze up?”

“Will you hush up and get something to warm me up with??”

Charles smiled blandly and went to get a hair dryer.

“That did not happen,” Veronica said when she could get to her feet. “We may have to rethink our sleeping arrangement.”

Sky, watching from the garden, couldn’t help but giggle. But when she tried, it suddenly turned into a gag. She felt terrible.

Almost as if — but that was impossible. Impossible!

Right?

Couple of short posts lined up because I didn’t really want to mix up the different moods.

HOPEFULLY they’ll be out quickly.

  1. I don't think there going to be able to sleep outside in the cold for much longer. I suppose you could build them a greenhouse room and potted plants to sleep in. And it looks like Sky might be pregnant.

  2. None of my sims has ever frozen like that in winter – so funny to watch! πŸ˜€ And yay for a possible sixth generation, I can't wait πŸ™‚

  3. Poor Veronica … it doesn't help that Charles seemed to find the whole thing amusing. I agree though … it looks as if you will have to change the sleeping arrangements slightly. Also, BABY!!! I can't wait to see the genetics of Sky and Leah in action πŸ™‚

  4. Yep. I made sure the bed was sheltered from the rain, but I didn't realize they'd freeze in winter! They're definitely going to have to move inside somehow.

    Sky? Pregnant? What makes you think that? *wink*

  5. Leah is in a family of anime-style asian sims that I downloaded from ModtheSims and assembled into a family in CAS. Her parents are designed in a similar theme, but they aren't built from the same genetics. When just goes to say that Leah has very promising genetics…

  6. I'm very intrigued by the Sims genetics system and love to see it in action. Leah is a very good mix of her parents and I hope she and Leah will complement each other as well.

  7. Poor Veronica, in her cute granny panties and matching bra, freezing beside her bed. And Charles with the sly amusement- he has that little devilish streak that you write so well!

    I do believe the next generation is on the way- yah!

    I so love your textures and colors in your pics, the blue and brown in Sky's bedroom is lovely, and a great shot of her getting out of bed, it feels very…un-posed, if you get what I mean.

  8. Thank you! I really enjoy trying to get neat pictures from the game animations.

    Yeah, the granny panties are Veronica's sleepwear. There are no sexy corsets for elders. I actually found on on All About Style recently. Veronica's still alive in current play, so perhaps I should install that change her sleepwear.

  9. Hilarious, the part with Veronica falling frozen to the ground and Charles asking her if she was all right was just hilarious. Short funny chapters are great. Haha! πŸ˜€

    Sky just drank too much the last night… Right? πŸ˜‰
