It was that time of year again. Dylan was filling up the yard with jack-o-lanterns.
At Sawyer and Gamora’s house, it was just another day. If Sawyer even knew it was a holiday, he never mentioned it.
It was a day off school and work, though, and they had a very productive morning together.
Now that Sawyer and Gamora had moved out, all of Dylan and Andria’s kids could have their own room. Winston took over Abby’s old room, which Sawyer had been sleeping in before he left.
Spooky Day was a day for stuffing yourself with sweets, wasn’t it? Winston was prepared!
When she went outside to photosynthesize, Gamora got a call from Vickie, inviting her to join her cousins at the Autumn Fair. She decided to give it a try.
She told Sawyer about the invitation and invited him to join her. He grunted.
At the festival, Winston set up his bake sale.
Abby tried out some roller skates.
While Chaim was scared ghostly in the haunted house.
Gamora decided to try bobbing for apples.
It turned out to be a lot of fun.
She didn’t need to breathe the same as an ordinary human, so winning turned out to be easy.
Victoria bought a snack from the treat vendor.
Glazed doughnut. Yum.
After lunch, Gamora got a surprising call from her father.
“Did you know today is Spooky Day?” he demanded.
“I told you before I left,” Gamora said.
“Emily Doctor is throwing a costume party. I’ll be at her house.”
“Oh!” Gamora said. “The Autumn Festival is kind of childish. I’ll find a costume and join you.”
The figure chuckled, revealing viciously sharp canines. “Believe it or not, I know who you are,” he said.
“Really?” Gamora asked. “I know I’m a scientific phenomenon. Are you into stuff like that?”
“Actually, it’s much more personal than that,” said the menacing figure. “You see, my name is Forest Sample.”
She looked at him with widening eyes.
In the back yard, Sawyer and Emily were gazing helplessly into each other’s eyes.
“I thought you’d never get here,” Emily crooned.
“I came as fast as possible for an unaugmented human,” Sawyer said.
“Wait, I thought she was here with me!” Gerard Ursine-Sample and Corina Shepherd exclaimed together.
“I can’t bear to watch this. Can’t you two get a room?”
Forest and Gamora, already fast friends, commented on the drama from the safety of the porch.
“Ready!” shouted the ref.
“I already think I’m going to be sick,” Judith whispered to Victoria.
“Too late now!” Victoria chirped, grinning wickedly at her best friend.
“How did I let you talk me into this?” Judith groaned.
Emily was delighted.
“Emily, I’ve never met anyone who makes me feel as comfortable as you do,” Sawyer said. “Would you consider a long-term commitment?”
“I would love to be your girlfriend!” Emily said.
Gamora couldn’t stop laughing.
“My face is stuck in this pie!” Victoria slurred.
“I surrender,” Andria said. “If I eat another bite, I am going to be sick.”
“And the winner is, Judith Culp!”
Afterward, they all cleaned up for their family picture. Well, almost everyone cleaned up.
After dusk, Forest became more comfortable leaving the porch. Gamora was much more comfortable around adults than childish children. Everyone appreciated her intellect.
She told a scary story she read once about the ghost of a vengeful pharaoh. All the adults were riveted.
Afterward, they couldn’t stop telling her how cute she was. It wasn’t the reaction she was going for, but she’d take it.
“Come here, sis!” Edmund said. “I’ve been practicing something, and I want to try it out!”
“Wait!” Victoria cried. “What are you –“
“That felt pretty good!”
“It ought to,” Edmund said. “It’s a good luck charm. You ought to study some magic yourself.”
It was worth being outside for a little while to spend time with family, or so he told himself.
He turned out to be pretty good at apple-bobbing.
Everyone decided to head home about the same time. Sawyer knew what would be waiting for him at the Sample Estate.
Abby brought dessert.
Even Uncle Stanley, Abby’s half-brother
The adults shared family stories. Bonehilda cleaned up.
The youth got ready for the most important part of the evening.
“How do I look?” Victoria asked.
“Way too nice for a Trick-or-Treat costume,” Edmund said. “Are you sure you’re not sneaking out for a date?”
“Of course not, silly. I’m going with Judy and Winston. Aren’t you coming?”
“No,” Edmund said. “Dressing up like a monster isn’t really my thing.” He didn’t want to admit that half of his class at school were already spreading rumors that he was a monster.
“Are you ready to go?” Winston demanded.
Judith met them outside.
By curfew, everyone was home and stuffed with too much sweets. That’s the way the day should go.
This was the first time I actually tried trick-or-treating. It was a great big glitch fest. The kids kept forgetting they were trick-or-treating, losing the the interactions on their menu, and switching back to their everyday outfits. This was the only successful trick-or-treat action they managed.
I strongly suspect that the NRaas mods are doing something here to screw up the flow of the EA stuff. I need to get around asking on the NRaas boards about it.
I love the Seasons holidays so much. I tried to do EVERYTHING for Spooky Day this time. It was fun, but SO MUCH STUFF.
Gamora and Forest are best friends. They were best friends before Emily’s costume party, and as far as I know, this is the first time they’ve ever met. I have no idea where that relationship came from. It makes sense, though. They’re both Evil Geniuses :). Actually, Gamora does not have the Genius trait, but most of her wishes have centered around the Logic skill. It makes sense, considering her upbringing.
I’m very pleased with the way Stanley’s face turned out. He’s Xia’s son that Plum kept a secret from her. He and Jody Ursine-Sample are making babies now. His genes will continue.
The last post before the heir poll should be 6.49. The countdown has begun.
