Proud of Darkness, Chapter 4

So, I am not really sure what has happened to me.  This morning I woke up on the floor in the hallway.  I remember finding out that I am pregnant, and I remember that Vlad and I eloped at the top of a cliff at midnight.  I don’t remember anything after that until I woke up on the floor.  If I drank or used drugs, maybe I could explain it.  But I don’t, so I can’t. But here I am, passed out on the floor at 5am.  I have to go to work in five hours, I am strangely hungry, starving, nauseous, exhausted, and actually exhilarated from, yes extremely satisfying woohoo.  Talk about a strange set of emotions.  I pick myself up off of the floor and make my way to my bed, where I still will sleep alone.  While Vlad, my husband is, who knows where, doing who knows what, with who knows whom.  At this moment, I don’t even care.

When I wake up later, Raven is sleeping next to me.  She is my true companion.  I don’t even know what Vlad is and I am not surprised that Vlad is nowhere to be found.  I get up and get ready for work, remembering too late that I am still not prepared for the day, once again.  It is doubtful I will receive a promotion today and I am tempted to go it alone.  But I need to pull myself together and remember why I am doing this.

Gina, my coworker, is a little nicer to me today.  I repay her kindness by giving her an untested serum to drink.  I don’t know why she trusted me, but she took it.  I am disappointed but she didn’t suffer any side effects, so I guess it wasn’t tainted.  Maybe next time.  I am curious to see what will happen with a tainted serum.

This morning sickness is really kicking my butt, or rather my tummy.  I literally am starving but can’t eat anything.  Everything makes me sick and yet I want to eat everything.  If I didn’t know better I would think that I was starving to death.  But that is ridiculous.

Once again, I am done with my tasks early and released to work on the rocket.  Today I work on it alone because I know it will be done and I don’t plan on sharing the credit.  This is MY rocket, MY glory.  No one else wanted to responsibility of building the rocket, so they don’t, WON’T share in my success.

There!  The rocket is complete.  Of course, now I am not permitted to take her up yet because I am pregnant.  That is a stupid rule.  She is my rocket, and I will be the first, and only one, to take her to space, once I have this baby.  Vlad’s baby.

After I finished the rocket, and not being able to take her up, I had to find something else to do.  Everything else required material.  I was really aggravated though because I needed crystals and, this has been a problem since I started working here, but every time I ask for help, no one has anything to share.  Today I finally had to go dig up my own.  Really.  Like they couldn’t share one to help out the new pregnant girl.

YES!  They recognized my contributions today and the fact that I completed building the rocket and I was promoted to Junior Tinkerer!  What was even more surprising was that Vlad was waiting outside for me when I got home.  I was able to tell both Vlad and Raven my wonderful news at the same time.

This morning sickness is going to be the death of me.  Nothing tastes good any more.  I can’t wait until this baby is born.  I don’t know that I will ever get pregnant again, so I hope Vlad doesn’t have his heart set on a large family, because this is it – one and done.

When it seems things in life are going too good, that is the lie.

Apparently being pregnant isn’t the only change I am experiencing.  My “loving” husband is keeping secrets.  Big secrets.  Because I found out the hard way that he is a vampire.  And now so am I.  I couldn’t even deal with the idea of going to work so I called in and took the day off.  It is Friday so I have three days to figure this out.  I should have this baby over the weekend and by Monday everything should be settled.  Now to go find this lying husband of mine.

That is when everything changed for me.  I can’t say it was my first mistake where Vlad is concerned, but I hope it will be my last.  I started looking downstairs in his “man cave” and what I found was a big surprise.  Apparently, his man cave has grown.  There are now four more “man caves”.  Really?  What the hell is he doing down here?  All of the doors are locked.

It is like he knew I was there because all of the sudden he was there with me.  He laughed and said he would show me what was in them.  Now I wish I had said no, but I went with him, trusting him a little too much.  What he showed me was a basically a holding cell.  He told me he had been keeping people down here to feed on when he got hungry.  Since I was now a vampire also, I could know his secret.

But what I don’t understand, the part that is really confusing me, is why did he leave me locked in here by myself?

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.
