Proud of Darkness, Chapter 3

I am so ashamed to admit that I was unprepared for work on Wednesday.  I have been distracted by Vlad and my dreams.  Again I dreamed of fighting and a prisoner, and I haven’t been concentrating on what I need to do for my career.

Vlad keeps coming to my bed at night, but that is the only time I ever see him.  He never tells me what he is doing or where he is going.  When I ask, he still tells me that I should be focusing on my career.  I know he is right but I can’t help the feeling that he is hiding something from me.  Or is it someone?  I must know!

At work I was assigned to the chemistry lab again.  I don’t think my coworkers like me and they aren’t giving me anything challenging to work on yet.  It is so boring right now at work, and I am having so much trouble concentrating.  I hope I get another promotion today.  The quicker I move up, the sooner I will be able to put my plans into place.

I finished all of my tasks early again so I was able to work on the rocket some more.  We are making progress and I think we will have it complete by the end of this week.  One good thing about this is that when I call the team to work on the rocket, they have to stop and come work on the rocket.  Maybe that is why they don’t like me – because I am the lead on the rocket building team even though I am only an apprentice inventor.

DAMN!  They said I didn’t do a good enough job today to get a promotion.  Maybe tomorrow.  We’ll see.  DAMN! DAMN! DAMN!

DAMN! Where is he?!?  HOWDIDHEGETOUT?!?

Raven always comes to meet me when I get home.  She is the best companion a girl could ask for.  Not like that jerk of a VLAD who is never around when I need him.  Where is he?  Why can’t I ever find him when I want to talk to him?   Well, I tell you what.  I am going to find him right now.

So, I went exploring, and in the back yard I found a hole in the ground with stairs leading down into a basement underneath the house.  Yeah, I didn’t know the house had a basement.  There is one room in the back of the basement with a locked door.

Yeah, and guess my surprise when Vlad comes walking out of the locked door.

At first I am furious that he has a private, locked room that I knew nothing about!  What the hell is he doing in there?

But he tells me that it is just a man cave and because he gave up his mansion to move here to be with me, and bought this house for me, that he wanted one place to be just for him.  And that makes so much sense.

Oh, and then he does that thing he does with my neck, and oh I can’t think any more…

I have been feeling really sick to my stomach recently and unable to eat anything.  But, I am so hungry, I want to eat all the time.  I went and took a pregnancy test and I am pregnant!  Vlad and I are going to have a baby!!  I am so excited.  I couldn’t wait to tell him and he was just as excited as I was.  In fact, he insisted that we get married immediately.

I thought we were going to get married in that gorgeous garden in San Myshuno, but Vlad took me to some vacant lot in Forgotten Hollow at midnight where we stood at the top of a cliff in the black of the night.  Yeah, that was weird.

OK, so just going to say that this neck fetish of Vlad’s is starting to get weird.  My neck is hurting today and I think he actually bit me last night.

Raven came with us for the ceremony, but otherwise it was just us at the top of this cliff.  It was very romantic and I can finally say that we are married!  And we are going to have a baby!  Can my life get any more perfect?!?

About Teresa 1076 Articles
I have been playing Sims since August 2005; a member, then a moderator, and now an admin of since October 2006. My sister is the one that hooked me on Sims in the beginning. She had all of the original Sims games and one week while I was on vacation I took her games and started playing. That was the beginning of my obsession. I played Sims 1 for about a month and then decided to buy Sims 2. When Sims 3 was released I made the move and have never looked back. Now I am all in on Sims 4 and still loving it.
