Chapter 5.1 – Decisions, Decisions!

21 09 2009

Now that it had been decided that Viola would take over the Shenston legacy, Mia decided it was time for her to retire.  She was now Governor of Sunset Valley and felt she had gone far enough in her career – it was never her ambitious to be this successful anyway.

She was tired of hosting fundraising parties and having to go house to house for donations.  The endless inspirational speeches were really draining on her.

So she decided to throw one last fundraising party combined with a retirement party.  She only invited her close friends, neighbours and work colleagues.  All elders of course.

She baked them all her speciality waffles (as it was only 9 o’clock in the morning), and served hot coffee in her self-designed kitchen.

The guests left a couple of hours later donating a total of $23,000 to her fund.  At least she could leave her job with a bang!  It seems one of Mia’s old flames decided to stick around after the party for a bit of a dance.

Ruby and Marco’s relationship was going from strength to strength.  Marco had aged into a full adult (he was older than he had initially told Ruby).

And he had also been promoted to Squad Leader.

Ruby found his new uniform a huge turn-on and could not keep her hands off him.

Marco loved this new lustful Ruby.  She had been so obsessed with working that they had not had much “alone” time since they were married.  Marco was determined not to let it go to waste and dragged Ruby off to the bedroom.

Ruby’s career was also going very well.  She had been promoted to Professional Blogger. She now had to try to produce juicy stories for the Online News Group which meant interviewing town folk or rummaging around in garbage cans.  Ruby was not willing to do the latter so set about chatting to as many town folk as possible.  Her first assignee was her mother’s best friend Tina Lingfield.  She told Ruby that apparently Seth Shenston was really rich – duh like Ruby did not know that about her own uncle!

Next up was Jess Smith who confessed that she was in love with Wilbur Andrews – a man twice her age.  This is better news, Ruby thought and headed home to write up her findings.

Viola was also working hard in her job as a criminal.  She had been promoted to Thug which meant she was now the muscles in “The Organisation”.

Jack was her partner in crime – literally, and they were getting along very well!  After work each day they would hang out at the abandoned warehouse, chatting about work and exchanging stories about criminals.

Viola was really falling for Jack, but did not want to make a move in case he rejected her.  She was not sure if he liked her back as the only physical contact he had given her was a friendly pat on the arm every time she did well at work.

At home, Ruby had started getting really bad morning sickness.

Screenshot-141

And it was not long before she realised she was pregnant.

Screenshot-168

She was devastated at first.  She always knew she wanted to have a child, but she wanted to fully establish herself in a career first, and now she had to wait a while.  She was reassured by Marco’s enthusiasm though.  He was getting old and loved the fact Ruby was pregnant.  Ruby hoped for a girl and Marco wanted a boy.

Screenshot-249

He promised her that he would work harder than ever to get one more promotion, and then they could afford their own home.

Meanwhile, Viola had met this guy…..

Screenshot-156

Amish Langrid worked at city hall and he had popped round one day to drop off some old papers to Mia.  Mia was not home, but Viola greeted him and invited him inside to wait for her mother.

Screenshot-160

After chatting to Amish for a few minutes, Viola found out he was ambitious, excitable and flirty.  He confessed his attraction to Viola quite quickly and asked her to go steady.

Screenshot-175

Viola said no as it was too soon and insisted that they date for a while first, she was not sure how much she fancied him and he was not Jack! Amish promised he was going to wine and dine Viola.  Viola hugged him goodbye and hated that she wished it was Jack standing before her and not Amish.  But she had to forget Jack, Amish was promising her the world, and it seemed Jack hardly knew she existed.

Screenshot-180

Well this was until the next day when Viola went to work.  Her and Jack were hanging out after work as usual and Viola was giving Jack a massage as he had just got into a big fight and was really sore.

Screenshot-216

Jack suddenly whipped round and kissed Viola.  He confessed he had always fancied her and wanted her to be with him, but he was not sure how much commitment he could give her right now.

Screenshot-232

What was Viola going to do?  A couple days ago she had no male interest and now she had two guys wanting her, but both for different reasons.  But who should she choose?

AMISH

JACK

Screenshot-283

Should it be Amish, the nice guy who wants to go steady and give Viola everything she wants?  He is ambitious, excitable and flirty but also a coach potato and a loser?

Or should it be Jack – the man of Viola’s dreams who has a great sense of humour, is athletic, a daredevil and a great kisser – but is also a commitment phobe?

VOTING NOW CLOSED!  Thank you to everyone who voted and i am pleased to announce Jack won with 61% of the votes.  Stay tuned to find out what happens next…..

I think it should be Jack. Taking on a pity relationship with Amish will only end bad. It almost always does.

Your story seems to just write itself – makes me laugh daily when I check in. It’d be nice to keep hearing updates on Scarlet’s life as well. 🙂

Btw I’m pleased to say my legacy has finally been updated.
