TITLE: The Vacation, Part I
Lot: Robbins.1 - Quavi and Daphne Robbins
Last Visit: The Human Condition - We learned that Quavi has developed the human emotion of love, and thus, his...aaahhh..'equipment' ceased to operate filling wombs. Although, he did not seem really concerned about it being that he had donated huge numbers of troops to the Mission. Xuan let the cat out of the bag and stated that he wanted nothing to do with training new troops for the Mission, and that he wanted to move out of the house he shares with Joy. Zaed threatened him with attention from the King. Let us proceed.
This week it is only Quavi and Daphne in the house.
Quavi: Yes, Daphne. *grumble*
Zaed: Quavi! Where go you?
Quavi: Zaed, my human wife wanted a 'get away.' What that means, I do not know. She speaks of the children all 'flying the coop', says we are now 'empty nesters' and that now the best time to take a vacation.
Zaed: Vacation? What is this thing?
Quavi: Apparently it is an extended break from work. One goes to a strange land, eats strange food and sees 'the sites'. One takes lots of photographs and spends alot of simoleons.
Zaed: Sounds like a very human tradition. Quavi, whilst you are away, take note of the lay of the land. Report back. I wish to see if there are Anotothians elsewhere.
Quavi: Yes, Zaed.
Hotel Clerk: Hello Mr. Robbins! Enjoy your 5 day 4 night stay at Potterhouse Bungalows on Twikki Island. Just pick up the phone for room service. We do have a tour guide that will assist you with any side trips you might want to take.
Quavi: Ahhh...thank you. Do you have a telescope?
Hotel Clerk: Uh, no. But we do have a mighty fine swing set in the front lot that seems to be a big attraction. (Editor: I swear by the all Mighty Sim King, I am gonna remove that thing!!!)
Daphne: Quavi! Forget about stargazing for once. Let's go look at the ocean!
Daphne: Quavi. I see you must be serious about it. You didn't even change into your swimming trunks before coming to the beach.
Quavi: Yes, well... *ahem* How can I carry my building tools and my camera? To take these....errrr...snapshots? *Quavi snaps a picture*
Quavi: Now that is what I am talking about!
Daphne: Very fine dear. We need a picture of a gorgeous island native. Let's go see the pirate ship I have heard so much about.
Quavi: Yes dear.
Tourist pretending to be the Captain: Avast ye swab, go aloft and reef the mainsail! Mese'f will man the wheel!
Daphne: But I am having so much fun driving!
Daphne: And then, we went on the pirate ship and played a while...then we took a helicopter ride around the island....
Zaed: Quavi! How goes it?
Quavi: Well, I am spending lots of simoleons. Eating alot of strange food. Seeing a lot of strange lands.
Zaed: Have you encountered any Anotothians?
Quavi: No, but I have met the ghost of a pirate ship, and I got to climb up really high to the crows nest.
Zaed: That is enough, Quavi. Take a rest.
Quavi: Ahhh...now this is the life.....
Daphne: Quavi, rub this lotion on me.....
Quavi: Eee! Ouch! Hot hot hot!
Daphne: Quavi, let's go to the old ruins.
Quavi: *Sigh* Eating again, Daphne?
Daphne: Oh yes, I can't pass up Pineapple Surprise.
Quavi: Alright. Let's go look around.
Daphne thinking: This is so much fun having time alone with my husband. We are taking lots of pictures to share with the kids when we go back to Prosperity Falls.
Quavi thinking: Boy, I could really get into this photography thing! I sure enjoy taking lots of pictures which we will share with the kids when we get back to Prosperity Falls!
Daphne: I wish I may I wish I might.......oh Quavi! This waterfall is beautiful!
Quavi: Yes, my love, it is magnificent. Wait, there is a villager who will take a picture in front of it of us together!
Daphne: Oh Quavi! How sweet!
Quavi and Daphne spent several days at Twikki Island. They took all the tours available, ate lots of food, and yes, they did get an opportunity to swing on the swing set. All too soon, it was time to go home.
