Chapter 4.21

The following day, Shayne and Ember check in on Jake in Evergreen Harbor.

(What the HECK is the matter with Jake’s eyes??? 👀 )

(And Shayne better hit the bathroom. FAST!)

“It’s soooo nice to meet the wife of Jakey…I mean, Jake,” Ember says in a weird, sarcastic voice.

(Are you…jealous, Ember? You have SHAYNE!)

Ember answers in her head, “I don’t know, Creator…it’s just that Jake’s wife is so…PRETTY!”

(Well…remember you have a wonderful family, great hubby–the best life. No jealousy allowed as we check in on your former boyfriends. 😡)

“It’s so nice to meet you. Come in and I’ll show you around,” Jake’s wife, Journey says.

Once they get inside, they’re greeted with this drunk teen.

(Omg! Is everyone here SMASHED??? 😱)

“Like…hiiiii,” Jake’s daughter, Frances slurs.

His other daughter, Alexandra asks, “Who’s the weird blue lady?”

Frances shrugs. “That’s a chick Dad knocked up a while ago.”

(Knocked up? That girl has been drinking too much juice. **crosses arms**)

Finding Jake at his computer, he muses, “Well, if it isn’t my old flame, Ember. Get it? Ember? Flame? I crack myself up.”

Ember chuckles. “Wow, Jake. You’ve gained more confidence since I saw you last.”

(He’s drunk. That’s why. And what’s with that dreamy stare? **hands on hips** You’re hungry. Go make yourself some lunch and CALM DOWN! 🤦‍♀️)

Eggs sizzling, Ember asks me, “What’re you worried about? Lingering feelings are normal, Creator. It’s not like I’m going to leave Shayne.”

(You better not even glance at Jake again. 😑)

Meanwhile, Shayne’s naiively looking around the house. “I wonder what it’d be like to woohoo with Ember in one of those pods?”

(Of course, Shayne’s thinking about woohoo…But come on, man! Your woman is having lingering feelings for Jake! Get back out there and remind her who’s her man!)

Once the eggs are finished, everyone sits down to enjoy their meal.

Jake smirks. “Ember, how could you pick such a loser like Shayne? Do you see what you could have had if you’d chosen me?”

Shayne bristles, staring Jake down.

He answers, “I believe you’re drunk so I’ll forget you said that. Come on, sweetheart, we need to go.”

(Awww…Shayne…you’re so nice. And true…Jakey is toasted so he doesn’t know what he’s saying. 😝)

****

Across town, Ember and Shayne check in on Michael.

Unfortunately, the neighborhood action plan is a juiced community.

(Sweet Michael is drunk, too??? OMG! What is this world coming to? 😱)

“Welcome to my home, Ember,” Michael says, trying to keep his eyes from crossing. “Meet my mother-in-law, Perla Shadowcast.”

The woman greets Ember, “Hello, there, dear. I’m so glad you didn’t choose Michael so my daughter, Daisy, could marry him. He’s a catch!”

“Isn’t that right, Jasmine?” Perla turns to the child next to her.

(Is that Michael’s daughter? She looks like she’s come straight out of the 1960’s! Omg!)

Instantly, Ember envelops Michael in a hug. “It’s so great to see you doing well, Michael.”

Inside, Ember meets Michael’s wife. “It’s nice to meet you, Jasmine. So…you’re a spellcaster?”

“Yes…a master, in fact.” Her eyes tighten. “I’m well versed in curses. Especially the curse of repulsiveness, sweaty stench, and punchable face.”

(Oh my, Ember! Let’s get out of here while you still have a face that’s not punched. Eek! 😱)

  1. Yeah! It’s back. Poor Shayne…can we get him the reward where he doesn’t have to go pee so much? lol Well, everyone is juiced. And Jake is just not nice to Shayne. And Ember does have some lingering thoughts about him…but maybe not after she saw all the drunkenness that was going around. Ember…Jake was not your guy…Shayne is…as he thinks of woohoo’ing with you in a pod. lol And Michael,,,oh my gosh…he is juiced, too! And why isn’t he living in Brindleton Bay with his love for animals? He married a spellcaster who doesn’t really want Michael’s old flame visiting. Eeek! Get out of there Ember.

    Hope you and hubby are fine with the COVID shot. Glad this is back, I have missed it. Cheers to craziness!

    1. Shayne…so oblivious. Until…drunk Jake smacks him with some smack talk! 😛

      Ember–well, she had a lot of feels throughout the bachelorette but in the end, it’s Shayne who really makes her swoon. 😉

      Michael married a woman who was living in Evergreen Harbor. For ease (for me), I didn’t move anyone, just relocated the guys and “married them”. They had children on their own as I played Ember/Shayne. (I have MCCC which allows for story progression.) I like how it turned out tho! Kind of like RL. You have to make compromises for the ones you love. Michael is so sweet, he’d go anywhere for love!

      Hubby got sick with the shot. Lol! But all are well!

    1. I missed Jake and his cute face, too. He looked so funny juiced out of his mind. He’s not so paranoid! 😛

      And his kids are gorgeous!
