Hello and welcome to chapter 15 ½.
Yes I mean ‘15 ½’. This is not a proper OWBC chapter because
none of the sims from the main OWBC household are involved in
this little mini-story.
Firstly I’d better introduce the main characters:
Alicia is the daughter of Joel Thomason(ex-Greek House placeholder) and Uni-townie Melanie King.
Mediocre is the alien daughter of AveragegamerO (simself).
Chisel Jersey is the daughter of Olf Pinch(1st gen. Bad Apple spare) and Caffie (simself).
Bower is the youngest son of Sanjay and Priya Ramaswami.
Fry is my simself’s son, his dad is Brandon Lilliard. (Yeah, I have a thing for men in kilts)
Bit is the son of Bushel Pinch(1st gen. spare) and Meadow Thayer.
Now; let the story begin!
From chapter 15
“But I shan’t be put off, there must be another way to get what I want.”
“Look Mediocre, I’m holding one. I think it’s my friend now.”
“Hmm, that’s nice Bower. Hey, hello Suzie, your babies are getting so big.
Hope you don’t mind my friends and I coming to see them.”
“Ha ha, nothing in this hand and nothing in that hand. This
hand – that hand. Ha ha ha! What a stupid dog.”
“Mr. Roseland, I really want to get a puppy, can I adopt one of yours?”
“Sure you can, you just need to get your parents to call me so we can arrange it.”
“But my mum and dad are too busy to call. They recently became
fully controllable and now they are always skilling, and when they
are not skilling they are spending their time fulfilling the wants they
roll, so you see, they don’t have time to call you, and if I want a
puppy I have to arrange it myself.”
“Unfortunately I can’t let children adopt the puppies, that would be irresponsible of
me. You will have to get your mum or dad to call me to arrange it.”
“But, it would be so much easier if I could just have one now. I don’t
want to have to hassle my mum and dad about this. In fact, they will
be proud of me if I do this all by myself”
“I’m sorry, you are just too little for such a big responsibility.”
“Excuse me, I am not little; I am definitely big enough to look after a puppy.”
“Well, perhaps you’re not that little, but you are still too young to
adopt a puppy by yourself. I’m sorry, no can do.”
“Right Bit, plan B is in action. You know what to do.”
“No problem Fry, easy-peasy.”
“Mr. Roseland, do you want to see how awesome I am at doing a head-stand?”
“Alright, let me see.”
“Erm, I think we’d better go out in the hallway, I don’t want to accidently break
something in here.”
“Bower. You really want to see Bit’s headstand too, don’t you?!”
“N..no, I want to stay and play with the puppies…”
“Scram Bower, out in the hallway with you!”
“Is the coast clear CJ?”
“Yep, they are all watching Bit.”
“Wow! You really are amazingly good at head-standing.”
“Come here you. Don’t worry, this won’t hurt.”
“Woops I have to hurry up, Bit has finished his head-stand already.”
”Hello Average, Cyd here. I’m calling to let you know that the puppy you
were going to pick up today has unfortunately been stolen, but I know
where it is and I was wondering if you and Mediocre would come with me
to fetch it, I can then hand it straight over to you without having to put it
through the stress of taking it to my house first.”
”Right Mediocre; put your book away, you’re coming for a little
walk with me.”
“A walk dad? Where are we going?”
“I have a little surprise for you.”
“A surprise? Wow, let me just get my bookmark.”
“I hope this novel of mine will sell well once I get it finished, I have
just rolled a want to write a best seller.”
“I’m sure it’ll sell well Caffie sweetie, you’re a very smart simself.
Oh look, someone is coming.”
“Hello Mr. Pinch, I’m sorry to disturb you like this but I have reason to believe
that your daughter has taken one of my puppies without permission.”
“You have a nerve to come here with accusations like that, you...”
“Olf dearest! Let’s go and ask Chisel Jersey if she knows anything about it.”
“That’s it! Hope you enjoyed that little story.
Now all there is left is to say cheerio for now and keep a look out for
the proper chapter 16 of A Measure of Things which should be up in
about a couple of weeks.”
“Mum, you haven’t told the readers the moral of the story.”
“Oh, what do you suggest that should be Fry?”
“OK listen here: If you want something, just take it. You are never
going to get it by just asking politely.”
“Fry! That’s a terrible moral, I can’t tell the readers that! Away
you go outside to play.”
Kids eh? What can you do?
Many thanks to the creators of the CC I use, both the seen and the
unseen, and thank you to my dear readers, old and new, who make the
simming community a wonderful and fun place to be.
See you all very soon. Until then – happy simming.
