Well we're back. I've had a little sleep so hopefully things will be better this morning. I still feel all icky. Oh woe is me. Anyway....
AVERY: I love science. It's all so fascinating.
Maybe I should have guessed that since he was a knowledge sim.
Five seconds later on our brand new telescope....
AVERY: You would too in my place.
Avery's first day of work and he's in another galaxy. Do you think his employers would by that excuse?
Eventually Avery made it home and then flew quickly off to work so that he wouldn't be too very late.
AVERY: I got a promotion. I get to work with the dolphins now.
In a way I guess that's true. More like work for the dolphins but whatever.
Oh yea. Did I fail to mention that. You've got a little alien bun in the oven. Generation two is on the way. Although I could use an alien heir, I am going to try to do the true love through all generations. That means a husband and wife for each heir. Course if things get tricky I reserve the right to change my mind. It's a woman's prerogative.
AVERY: I guess you were right after all.
I'm always right. Just carve that in stone and leave it around somewhere for all the future Kantoos to see.
That night the leader of the pack makes an appearance. And finally, he has a decent name. Meet Menice, our official leader of the pack.
AVERY: Hey there boy. What big eyes you have.
MENICE: The better to see where your delicate flesh is.
ESTER: Oh Avery. It is sudden but it feel so right. Yes. I will marry you.
Of course. No time like the present. I gave Ester the chance to back out of the marriage just for drama sake but she didn't. Thank goodness. She'll come in handy in a sec.
ESTER: In a sec dear. I have to complete this spell first.
ESTER: With you in a second dear.
ESTER: Umm. They are... a lovely shade of green.
VISITOR: Yuck. Bugs.
Next time, Ester gives it a go at giving birth.
