Enigma had been spending a lot of time with her pack lately, and she seemed to be out of sorts. This culminated in a rather unexpected mess on the foyer floor.
Hunter named the puppies, both male, Mystery (in front) and Riddle (in back). It seemed appropriate. Nobody had even realized she was pregnant.
Dylan’s first word was,”Exercise!” Wasn’t he a bit of a prodigy? Well, he got most of the syllables at least.
He didn’t bother to run, and it wouldn’t have helped anyway.
“Forest Sample?” the young female police officer bellowed from the car. “Please come down to the precinct. We have a few questions to ask you.”
Avalon’s Finest was run out of the old medieval debtor’s prison, which made it a terribly imposing place to conduct interrogations.
“Police Chief William Pierce is waiting for you,” the officer reported.
Forest steepled his fingers and smiled. “Good. I have a few questions for him, too.”
And that is how Avalon Law Enforcement gained a paid informant who worked closely with the Emperor of Evil.
Veronica was still struggling, though she wasn’t about to complain about it. She kept herself busy with her inventions.
Hunter spent a lot of time with Enigma and the puppies.
Eliana wasn’t returning his calls, and he was trying not to worry.
For all that Sky worked harder than she ever had to make Leah comfortable, she seemed to stiffen at Leah’s advances. Something was clearly wrong, but Leah assumed it was related to Sky’s grief for her father and tried to give her space.
Then in the middle of the night, Sky was up with vicious nausea.
It couldn’t possibly be. Fate wouldn’t be that cruel.
Of course it would.
Show of hands: Who saw that coming? Poor Sky.
I really wanted to name one of the puppies Puzzle. It would fit with the naming theme. But we have enough pet/sim confusion in this town already!
I’m back to playing the Samples and am maybe 6 posts behind. The puppies haven’t grown up yet, and I am dying to see what they will look like. I bred Enigma to MacDuff Voss, who is a big fluffy simbin dog. I can’t resist playing with how the genetics of the carefully crafted sims and pets pass down.
Oh yeah, and I finally updated the Story So Far page to include Charles’s life. I need to start a section for Sky, but I need to get a good pic for it, and I foolishly used the portraits generated by uploading to the Exchange.
