Chapter 4.20

In the morning, Ember wakes up in miserable pain.

(I told you not to have another baby. What were you thinking? 😑)

“I wasn’t. But it’s too late now,” Ember mumbles.

(You can say that again!)

In a few pushes, we have a new nooboo.

Welcome to the world, Anton Layton!

Aww…and it looks like Ember is thrilled with him.

(You got the boy you wanted. Now let’s get your tubes tied. 😐)

Shayne walks in after the fact.

“What? We’re having a baby? You’re pregnant?”

(***smack head*** Really, Shayne?)

Ember puts her hands on her hips. “It’s all done. Baby Anton is here!”

“What? How could I not know you were pregnant? Why doesn’t anyone tell me anything around here?”

(Why indeed, Shayne. Why didn’t you notice that huge balloon belly of your wife’s? Hmm???)

Now that the family is complete, it’s time to check up on bachelor friends.

I whisk them to visit Mike since he just lives a town over in Mt. Komorebi. The fam is greeted by Mike’s daughter, Jaden, and his dog Snowflake plus Drake’s son, Jamil, since they live next door.

Even though Mike is happily married, just seeing Ember throws darts in his heart.

And little Jaden isn’t too keen on these strangers either.

Dousing the troubling feelings inside, Mike walks up to Ember and says, “This is a big surprise. Hello, Ember.”

Ember wraps her arms around Mike and whispers, “It’s great to see you, Mike. Your daughter is adorable.”

“Wanna see my pet cowplant?” Drake’s son asks.

(Cowplant? Hmmm…he’s Drake’s son alright. Don’t pet a cowplant, Ember. EVER!)

“Oh, Creator, you’re silly. Jamil is a toddler. He couldn’t mean any harm in just looking at it.”

(My tip? Avoid the cake. Here’s a potion so you won’t be tempted.)

Just then, a huge WHOOSH sounds and flames engulf the backyard grill.

Everyone rushes away, heart in their throats.

Well, except for Shayne. He’s perpetually happy.

(Omg…nothing fazes him! 😳 He’s either very naive or has ice in his veins.)

“Since my husband isn’t worried and doing nothing, I’ll call the fire department.” Ember taps out 911.

(Good thinking, Em! At least everyone has YOU!)

Drake’s wife, Katelyn, cries into her hands.

“What’s wrong?” Mike asks. “It isn’t your house that’s going up in flames.”

“The hot…dogs…are ruined.”

(This is a true statement! 😜)

Mike’s wife, Antonia, grumbles, “I told you to order out, dear. Now look what you’ve done.”

“I’ve ruined everything.” Mike’s lip quivers.

(Cheer up, Mike. At least your mistakes have made a jealous Shayne VERY happy. 😝)

All is not lost, though. The fire department quickly puts out the fire before the flames can flicker over to the house.

And so it’s time to see the house Mike lives in.

“Such a quaint, beautiful place, Creator. I’m so happy for Mike.”

(Me, too. He deserves happiness! Thankfully, you took care of the fire or…this party may have ended differently. 😰)

Antonia decides to eat Fruit Bloopies since the hot dogs are nothing but black crisps.

“You’re in a good mood, Shayne. What’s making you so happy?” Ember asks.

“Maybe that today proves I have the most beautiful wife, great kids, and the best life on the planet, hun.”

(I get the feeling Shayne was happy that Mike didn’t show him up…heh…heh…)

For those who are wondering, here’s the families they visited today:

The Eagle Family and Johansson Family

I took a peek at their children as adults and whoa…all so CUTE! Depending on who becomes heir, I’ll put them into the bachelor/bachelorette challenge. They will NOT get special privileges, but it’ll be fun to see them in the mix, too! And whomever made the first bachelor, it’ll be like your own grandchildren in the challenge, too (alongside another candidate.)

Thanks for reading!

  1. Glad this is back. And for once, Ember is happy to have a baby boy! Ahhh….how sweet. And then in comes clueless Shayne. lol The guy is cute, but sometimes…hehehe And then they visit Mike…oh, Mike was feeling a bit of the old flames surface there…and..they .literally did with a backyard fire. Was Shayne secretly hoping that Mike’s house would burn to the ground and they would have to move to another world? Nahh….Shayne isn’t like that at all…lol…as he just stands there watching the bar-b-q burn. Maybe he thought it was supposed be something flambed on the grill. hehhe All is well with the world, though, as Ember calls the fire department.

    1. Yay for a baby SON!

      I use an emotion mod that helps create real emotions and they linger…so I really think nothing could stop Shayne’s happy mood in that he just had a son. Even watching a fire wouldn’t shake him. 😉

  2. Awww. A boy! I love that you took care of the bachelors and gave them lives! Mike probably had no trouble hooking up. She’s sweet and yummy. Buy I can’t believe someone married Drake! Lol. He’s so stuck on himself, but he and Mike are both drool worthy. Happy to see the story back! ❤️

    1. He’s! A boy finally! We’ll have heir choices!

      Drake did get married and she’s so pretty…I think their son is going to be full of himself too but we’ll see…

  3. Thanks for the tour of Drake and Mike’s home. Their kids are really cute.
    I had thought about using Mike in my own game on occasion, but right now I have no plans.
    I had forgotten that Snowflake had two colored eyes.
    Happy reunion 😊

    1. You should! I’d love to see a cameo of him. He’s so handsome! His daughter is gorgeous! Best of both parents!

      I love Snowflake. Beautiful!

      1. Maybe I should send Tusnelda and Martin on vacation in the mountains. He could be their guide. 🤔
        Thanks for your recommendation ❤

      1. Hazah! XD I’m sure it will be! Jake is pretty amusing. I think I should add him to my Midnight Woods save. That would be interesting. Paranoid Jake in the same save as the issue-filled Afton and Emily families. XD

    1. I’m fine! Thanks for checking on me!

      I’m just in the middle of CRAZY summer time (that started in May for me). I’ve been doing a lot of traveling but hope to get back to this story this week (and Day & Knight).

      Hope all is well with you, too!

  4. Looks like I’m all caught up now! This has been such a fun read. I know I’m late with this but just needed to mention how funny I found June and Zolanx throughout generation 3. I bet Ember and Shayne’s kids will all turn out really cute, given their parents’ good looks, although I’m kind of sad none of them are blue.

    1. Wow! Thx for reading about this crazy fam! Yeah…I think the blue gene goes away after a while. 🤷‍♀️ At least it did in that fam.
