Dylan and Andria doted on little Edmund.
“What?” Xia asked when this was mentioned. “Ground Control is filled with people like her.”
Andria treated the plants like her own children. When they were hurt, she felt their pain.
She shared a connection with growing things that was unlike anything a normal mortal could know.
Dylan gave in to his enthusiasm for nectar. He’d taken an introductory class in nectaring on his honeymoon. He imported some equipment and began to experiment.
He also spent time training Connery.
Dylan’s life hadn’t turned out anything like he expected, and yet he loved it.
“Funny how that happens sometimes,” Xia said sagely.
Sky’s solo career showed no signs of slowing down.
Demand for Ghostwriter performances was actually picking up.
Connery and Sky had a special bond.
He loved her music and would even “sign along” when they played it at home.
Andria had always wanted a big family, and biology was on her side. The next Sample was on the way before Edmund was even a toddler.
Not long before, however, Edmund’s birthday was upon them.
Xia proudly sat him at the table with the rest of the family.
He didn’t get to eat the cake,
After the festivities, it was Edmund’s bedtime.
Dylan and Andria stole some time together after Edmund was finally asleep.
The sound of the explosion woke up the household and brought them running.
But it was too late for Xia.
It all happened so fast. Sky never said a word. She just watched the love of her life disappear in stunned silence.
Grim’s job was done, and he turned out to be a fan of Ghostwriter music.
While the Samples grieved, he got his groove on.
Sawyer descended on him. “While you’re here, I want you to explain some secrets of life.”
“What? Oh, I’m late for my next appointment,” Grim said and was gone.
And so comes the surprise end of Xia. She fixed the dishwasher autonomously, was zapped and nearly killed. I didn’t even know that sims could repair things autonomously. I admit that I sent her back for the second time. It was part curiosity about the legendary dishwasher deathtraps, and partly because I felt like Xia had told me how she wanted to leave the game. She becomes the second Sample to become a colored ghost. Well, she and Veronica always like attracting attention.
Putting in the Grim antics seemed in sort of bad taste, but come on — Grim antics.
Edmund got the best coloration of all Dylan and Andria’s kids IMHO. I mean, come on! He got Leah’s hair! Also Andria’s eyes. We’ll see how his face turns out.
Also, Andria can bring plants back to life! That’s apparently what happens when you max out your Gardening skill. Or maybe that combined with Green Thumb? At any rate, I’d never seen it before. Seems like the perfect power for a plant fae.
Dylan has topped out the Photographer career, so I’m going to see what he can do with nectar making.
