Title: And Then There Was One
Last Visit: My Three Sons
Hey, yeah...it is me Jim-Bob again. Like I said last time I talked to ya, I was leavin' for University. But bein' that I will probably be the one to come back home with a wife to take care of mom and dad when they get old, I guess I am the reporter for the family. Ahem. Alrighty then.
See, there they are. Don't ask me how dad got their ghostly bodies on film. Heh. They passed away when I was around 10 years old or so, and mom and dad just started a family grave yard in the back yard. I suspect they think they were gonna be buried there too. As a kid I was a little creeped out by a coupla graves in the back yard. I had to walk right by 'em to go visit with Benny in the dog house.
LTW: To Become A Celebrity Chef
After Michael-Douglas grew up, he took over feeding Benny. At least he could walk in the back yard and not deal with the graves being there all in his face and everything. In fact, Michael-Douglas is workin' hard to fill in the shoes that both Shawn-Michael and I left behind.
Did I say earlier that Michael-Douglas is filling in the shoes that both Shawn-Michael and I left behind? Yup. Shawn has joined me at Sim State. Here are some of the things he got accomplished before he left.
BERRY NOSEY REPORTING! I am at the home of Barry-James Strickland. It seems two graves disappeared from the family graveyard the Stricklands had erected in the back yard behind the family garage.
"Mr. Strickland, tell me in your own words, what happened to the grave of the former mayor of Prosperity Falls, Kerris Robbins-Strickland?"
Barry-James - "Well, one night my wife Mackenzie Capehart-Strickland heard noises outside. Like it was comin' from the back yard. She didn't bother gettin' me up to investigate because the dog wasn't barking. She thought she was just hearin' things. The next day when my son went to the back yard to feed Benny the dog, he reported the graves were gone. Just like that."
Berry Nosey - "I see. But Mr. Strickland. The Strickland family has a strong history of graves disappearing over the last 3 decades. Didn't you think maybe it was happening again?"
Barry-James - "No, I never gave a thought to it. I never thought anyone would want the bones of the former Mayor, and those of my father, former Captain Hero Marc-Henry Strickland. I mean, who would want them?"
Berry Nosey - "Mr Strickland. Is it true Vampiress Lillith Strickland-Capehart has been seen in these parts lately, late at night?"
Barry-James - "I suppose so. We never had any trouble out of the Vampires in the Strickland family. Lillith Strickland-Capehart is one of the daughters of Chevy Strickland. In fact, she is a Mad Scientist, and has helped many in this town overcome illnesses and worries."
Berry Nosey - "So let me get this straight. You don't find it odd that a Vampire who is also a Mad Scientist has been hanging out around your yard lately? And don't you find it odd, that a member of the Robbins Family, Jessica Robbins has suddenly made friends with a member of this household?"
Barry-James - "No I don't. I don't find it odd that a Vampire who is a Being of the Night, was seen on the corner in front of my house at midnight. Jessica Robbins is Kerris Robbins-Strickland's distant cousin. I don't find it odd that she has befriended my son Shawn-Michael at all. I really don't think I like what you are insinuating. I think you should take your *blankety-blank* note book and tape recorder and get the heck offa my property. NOW!"
Berry Nosey - Well, readers, there you have it. A Vampire who is a Mad Scientist had been spotted snooping around the Strickland graveyard shortly before the graves disappeared. Kerris Robbins-Strickland ancestry has never really come out in the open, but then we see her cousin Jessica comin' around the Mayoral mansion all of a sudden. Jessica's heritage is questionable as well. Her father, Quavi Robbins, is Kerris Robbins's cousin. Hmm. The plot thickens.
Dear readers, I would like to announce I will be quitting the Prosperity Falls Gazette as the Investigative Reporter. Next week I will be starting a position as Investigative Reporter for a new upstart television station in Prosperity Falls, WeSIM. See you next time on the big screen! This is Berry Nosey, signing off!
