Chapter 199: A Holiday


Zahra: Opps, I forgot my suitcase...
Dude: Oh heaven's don't tell the watcher that or we'll never hear the end of it.




Nate: Right, well while you oldies muck around I'm going to get cracking.




Abi: Come on ladies, let's start relaxing!








Charlotte: I must say this really is the best spot for a holiday.
Mac: Agreed, it is just so beautiful here.




Caleb: I think we should get down there son and show them how it's done.
Julien: To be honest dad I'm pretty useless at horse shoes!




Dude: It'll be good to get the fridge stocked up, it's looking pretty empty.
Nate: Yeah, won't take me long.
Dude: Do you want a hand?
Nate: No, it's all under control, just good to have you upgrade the fridge. I can't stand that gross plastic taste you get from those cheap fridges.




Julien: Oh this is the life watcher!
I totally agree, can you roast me a marshmallow?
Julien: Sure.




Charlotte: Well, I've heard it's true... telling ghost stories at night around here will make some poor soul leave the netherfield and come and haunt you.
Abi: I don't know... netherfield doesn't sound quite right...
Charlotte: Netherground?
Nate: Umm, think I might go to bed. Nite everyone.



The next morning...

*Yawn* Morning Nate.
Nate: Morning watcher.
Nice way to start the day.
Nate: Hmmm




Nate: Keen for a walk watcher?
Sure...I wonder what Dude's up to though...be back in a min.




What are you up to?
Dude: Oh *cough* nothing, just reading the err... camping digest.
K then. See you later.




Nate: Wahooo! A real live bear!!!!
Bear: Woah, that's not the usual reaction I get!




Nate: So what's the best part of living in the forest?
Bear: *fan-bearing* Oooo I just love the crisp morning air... the sound of the birds waking up and the sounds of terrified campers as I creep up to their tents and make terrifying shadows!




Nate: My! What big teeth you've got!




Bear: All the better for eating you smiling with...




Oh for crying out loud! Who... I say WHO told the ghost story? I bet it was you Zahra wasn't it?
Zahra: No! It wasn't. I've just woken up, I don't know anything about it.
Well , I'm telling you if that ghost glitches out and we have to quit our holiday I'm going to be one grumpy watcher.
Zahra: Well, nothing new there then.




Nate: What's the hurry Pop?
Dude: Watcher's on the grump..
Nate: K, let's make a run for it. What did you this time?
Dude: I'll tell you on the way.

Chapter 200: Nate's Adult Birthday


Nate: Wait up Pop! You're running like Grim himself is after you!
Dude: Just a super grumpy watcher, far worse if you ask me!





Nate: What did you even do?
Dude: I may or may not have, accidentally or on purpose, told a ghost story this morning in the tent.
Nate: Lol, well by the time we get back the watcher will have forgotten all about it.
Dude: Very true.




Nate: No way! Fish ON!




Nate: I think our fishing competition is over before it even started Pop!




Dude: I would say lucky first cast but all I've got is an apple.




Nate: You better make that lucky first and second cast.
Dude: Lol, far out, you're on fire today! That's unreal!




Dude: Heh, well... that's all the special fish caught now. Pity the watcher isn't here in some ways...
Nate: I know, she always goes on about how long it takes us to catch anything. Hey Pop?
Dude: Hmm?
Nate: I've just had a thought... it's pretty weird that the one time the watcher's NOT with us, we catch everything nearly as soon as we cast out.
Dude: I was just kinda thinkin' the same!
Both: LOL




Dude: Umm, yeah, like I was saying, you should always stand up-wind of the flame.
Nate: ARghhh.... thanks for the tip, NOT. A little help?




Dude: Really? You're really going to try to light the fire again standing in exactly the same place?
Nate: Yep. Determined.




Dude: Lemme tell you a lil' campfire story about the lil' boy who played with matches...
Nate: Very funny.




Dude: You gotta admit, this is the life eh?
Nate: Yep *happy sigh* nothing quite like it.




Nate: And you're sure the Hermit doesn't mind us using his stuff?
Dude: Yep, all sorted.
Nate: K. I wonder where he is?




Dude: And just like magic he appears!
Hermit: Be back in a min....just make yourselves at home.




Hermit: So, that must have been my great times however many grandmother you met...Huh? Wait a minute! How does that even work?
Dude: *Cough* Umm... secret family thing...Cutting sugar from your diet helps a lot too.




Nate: Ugh, this woodworking 'thing' is harder than it looks.




Nate: Ohmygiddyaunt. I'm literally seeing stars!! Time for base camp before I knock myself unconscious.






Charlotte: Sounds like you two had a good day.
Nate: It was really great actually.
Charlotte: Well, hope you don't mind baking your own cake.
Nate: Lol, no, not at all.




Julien: So all set to become an adult?
Nate: Strangely reticent about the whole 'getting older' thing.
Julien: Happens to the best of us.




Woo! Happy adult birthday Nate!




Everyone: Happy birthday dear Naaate... (Apart from Julien who forgot the words...)




Nate: Wow! Feeling GOOD!
Charlotte: Happy birthday son.





Abi: I can't believe the watcher's letting us eat cake!
Caleb: I know, right! We've been eating pretty much what we want the entire holiday!




Dude: Just think Nate, we're only 20 days away from completing our destiny!




Nate: 'Destiny'? I that some kind of new challenge?
*Face palm* better not be.




Abi: I knew the watcher would make us pay for all this eating...

What a lovely vacation! It was great seeing the family together. And making them pay, lol.  ;D

20 days, that has to be just a couple more gaming sessions for you! So close!

Chapter 201: A Party, A Challenge, A Farewell


Well, you ended up being chef on the last party, just like you were on the very first party too.
Dude: Yep, a full circle really.
I just hope that it's only hotdogs being roasted over there.
Dude: Yeah, kinda looks like Charlotte's doing her best to torch her son!
LoL





Nate: I'm going to ignore you mum, sorry, but I really need to finish my story.
Charlotte: Ooo Oo




Mac: There really isn't much space around the fire for roasting these dogs watcher.
Hmm, I see what you mean. Just do you best hun, we need three done.




Nate: Na, it's cool, we've got a system now watcher.
Abi: Everyone justs lifts their left arm up a tad and bob's your uncle!
Bear: He was actually. A really good guy too.




Nate: Delish! Perfectly toasted!




Bear: Tonight's been just lovely! I don't often get invited to parties.
Charlotte: Why's that Bear?
Bear: I seem to make people quite tense for some reason. I don't really understand it, I'm actually a really nice guy deep down inside.
Charlotte: Well, I'm quite partial to bears so it's all good as far as I'm concerned.




OOo, will this be the winning toss?




Err, I guess not.
Julien: Oh watcher, you broke my concentration!
 :-\




Zahra: Boy, there is just something magical about singing camp songs round a campfire...
Mac: Agreed.
Charlotte: *Happy sigh* This has been the best holiday and the best party ever.




The next day, back at home...


Charlotte: Hun, you're looking particularly gorgeous this morning.
Mal: Why thank you my love.




Mal: So did you enjoy your holiday?
Charlotte: It was just lovely.




Mal: I've had my last warning from Grim son.
Nate: Oh Dad! No!
Mal: I've lived longer than most my boy. I've lived long enough to see your beautiful mother complete her life's requirements and long enough to see you only days away.
Nate: Oh Dad, I'm going to miss you so much!
Mal: I know son. I need you to be strong for mum.
Nate: I will...*gulp* I will be Dad.
Mal: I love you son and I'm so very proud of you.




Charlotte: Your painting is coming along beautifully now love.
Mal: Well I've certainly enjoyed being able to potter about during my retirement anyway.




Charlotte: We've certainly be lucky with our wonderful son eh? Not that I'd tell him too often! lol
Mal: Lol, I think he could probably handle the praise but yes, we've been blessed eh.




Charlotte: I love you.
Mal: *Gently* And I love you.




Mal: Thank you for framing these for me.
Least I could do. It will be something for Charlotte and Nate to have once...once...
Mal: Once I've gone. I know.
You'll be missed more than you know.




Later that night...

Dude: I've heard the fishing's really good here
Nate: K, it's worth a go.
Dude: That's what I thought.
Nate: Well, if I can catch a few more angelfish... I might be able to better my museum score a little.
Dude: Sounds a plan





Nate: Hmm, doesn't seem to be much action.




Nate: Wait! I've got something! Oh, nope, false alarm.
Dude: Let's go try somewhere else. This really isn't much good.




Nate: Least I can actually see some fish here.
Dude: Always a good sign.




Grim: Hear you're close to completing your families dynasty.
Nate: You know it!
Grim: Well, I'm here to catch all the remaining angelfish so you can't.
Nate: *Grin* Is that right.




Grim: Oh yes, it's nothing personal but it is particularly fun to see a dynasty fail in it's last few hours.
Nate: I see, well... bring it on, Grim! Let the fishing challenge begin.




Grim: Was that an angelfish you're sliding into your back pocket Nate?
Nate: Might have been lol
Grim: Gah.





Grim: Well, unfortunately I have to go reap your dad.... see yaz.
Nate: Huh? What did you say?
Grim: Outties.
Nate: Watcher? What did Grim say?
*Cough, sniff* <Choked voice> Nothing hun... he just had a *sniff* family emergency thing.
Nate: Oh, right. In other words he couldn't bear to lose the fishing competition.
Yeah, that will be it. *sob cough*
Nate: Well, I didn't have the heart to tell him I already have enough angelfish to complete my museum, heh.




Watchers Note: I had been watching Nate's relationship panel as I knew from counting the days since Mal's birthday that he would be dying sometime very soon. In game Grim leaving did not coincide with Mal's death but I wrote it that way as it seemed fitting.

RIP Mal, you were a fantastic dynasty spouse even though you never lived in.

Nate: Well watcher, it's time.
It sure is Nate, can't delay it any longer.




Make it a good wish Nate, last one of the dynasty.
Nate: Will do.




Happy Birthday Nate!




Nate: OMGosh! My Back!
Well, it was bound to happen, it's a genetic thing I guess.




Nate: Now I see why you guys are constantly moaning and cricking your backs...




Congratulations Hollingsworth family, your dynasty is about 6 or 7 mouthfuls away from completion.




Dude: Well done son, you did us proud.
Nate: Thanks Pop.




Mac: How do you like the taste?




Nate: It's unusual to say the least!




Zahra: Well ladies, that all our goals completed. Hard to believe really.
Charlotte: It's a lovely feeling.
Caleb: Surreal!




Julien: I'm not sure what we are all going to do next, how 'bout you Dad?
Caleb: I think I might retire now that the watcher won't be driving us so hard.




Julien: What about you Charlotte? What do you think you will do?
Charlotte: To be honest I want to see if I can summon Mal... you never know I might just be able to have my happily-ever-after!
Abi: That sounds just perfect.




Dude: Congratulations! You're immortal now too!




Here are Nate's museum items: 10 x Plates Of Ambrosia: 17,645: 17,301: 17,205: 16,573: 16,193: 16,123: 15,904: 15,569: 14,373: 13,664= Total 160,550    Stats page fully updated with all sims data
