The Higgs - Gen. 2, Chapter 10








Growing tired of bananas, Justin scrounged around the campsite to put together a
fairly decent meal for the evening.

Justin: Not too shabby, if I do say so myself! Swamp cooking at it's finest.




Atlas: Damn, I think I ate too much. I'm really riding that food high.

Justin: Me too, I'm feeling really... floaty.

Atlas: What are you doing back there anyway?




Justin: Praying; praying we don't die from my cooking.




Atlas: Tolkien once said, "Moonlight drowns out all but the brightest stars.". I bet
he was lost in the woods when he wrote that, because it all makes perfect sense now.




Justin: We are all stardust! Are you tripping?




Atlas: I feel totally wasted!




Atlas: What in the hell did you put in the food anyway?

Justin: Crayfish, fiddleheads, wild mushrooms; we don't exactly have a stocked pantry,
you know.




Just as the words left his mouth, a thought suddenly hit Justin like a ton of bricks.

Justin: The mushrooms!




Atlas: No, you didn't! Are you sure they were edible?




Justin: I don't know? I found some in the meadow; I thought they might add a little
panache to the food.

Atlas: They added a little something, alright. So, basically, you might have poisoned us?




Justin quickly scrambled over to the fairy circle in the meadow.

Justin: Come on, they're just over here.




Atlas: Ha ha, I think these are magic mushrooms! You know, psychedelics.

Justin: Yeah? This might be the best mistake I've ever made! If we survive, I'm going to
make this again for breakfast.




Seamus and Lainey bide their time on the beach, waiting for Justin and Atlas to return.

Lainey: I was thinking, since we're all alone, we might as well take advantage of it and
have a little fun tonight.

Seamus: Are you crazy? They could be back at any given minute! For all we know, they
might be severely injured, or even dead.




Lainey: Good grief, Seamus! You always have an excuse. Are we ever going to take our relationship to the next level? They're probably out there having "make up sex" right now.

Seamus: Come on, Lainey. You know we will, just... not tonight.




Seamus: I'm starting to get a little worried, they should have been back way before now.

Lainey: I'm... I'm sorry. How inconsiderate of me.




Seamus: God, I really am a dork. Here I am, alone on a desert island with a hot girl,
who's practically begging for sex, and all I can do is worry about my brother. No wonder
I'm still a virgin.




Growing more restless by the day, Alice eagerly awaits the moment when she can be
discharged from the hospital, and return to her home life with her new bundle of joy.

Hadron: Doctor Jenkins is here for your morning checkup, maybe you'll get to go home
today.




Alice: I'm ready. *sigh*




Dr. Jenkins: I'm detecting a little fluid in your lungs, likely due to your hypertension.
It looks like you'll be extending your vacation here at "club med" a little longer.

Alice: (dryly) Wonderful.




Dr. Jenkins: Peripartum cardiomyopathy is a serious condition. Now, don't take this
the wrong way, but middle aged women sometimes experience this after a pregnancy, and
your chart shows that you had a near fatal collapse during your last one. This isn't
just a coincidence, Alice.




Alice: I was overworked and fainted, that's all. Where's my Mai Tai?




Dr. Jenkins: This is a potentially fatal condition, and the next time she might not be
so lucky. You should both start thinking about preventative measures for the future, maybe
consider getting a little snip yourself.

Hadron: It's not like this was planned, she was on the pill for Christ's sake!

Dr. Jenkins: Right. Just something to think about anyway.




Alice: I guess I'll see what's on the ol' boob tube; it cant be any more depressing
than this hellhole.




SBN: BREAKING NEWS! Fires are still burning at the Wanmami Island crash site. New
reports indicate that there could potentially be several sims unaccounted for. A
forensic crew will search the grounds as soon as the fires are safely extinguished.




Alice: Oh, my God! Ronnie! Did you hear that?




Hadron: I think that's enough television for now.

Alice: (weeping) Our boys, what if... what if it's them?




Alice: Dear Lord, please, I pray that our babies are safe!




Hadron: I'll try calling the dorms again, maybe someone's heard something.

Alice: Please... and, thank you.




Hadron didn't have much luck with the dorm, half of the sims were out on break, and the few
that were there didn't even know who he was talking about.

Hadron: It's spring break, no one's in the dorm. What was I thinking? Maybe Haddie can
try messaging someone on the computer.




Their daughter, Haddie, made her rounds on the net, without a single reply back.




Justin: This doesn't look right.




Atlas: Haha! You're kidding, right?

Justin: No, where the fuck are we?




Justin and Atlas take a look around at the strange and unfamiliar surroundings.




Atlas: I can't quite make out what it says, looks like some ancient form of Simlish.

Justin: That's it, we're screwed!




Justin: Is it just me, or is it really fucking hot?




Justin: I can't stand it! I'm going to climb up to the top of this rock; maybe someone
will see us. It's our only hope.




Atlas: Yeah, it's a bit toasty. I don't think rock climbing on mushrooms is such a "hot"
idea though.



Justin sizes up the rock to begin his ascent.

Justin: Yeah, I can totally scale this. Easy peasy!




Atlas: He's insane! I guess I had better go after him.




Nearing the summit, Justin loses his footing and slips.




Atlas reaches out to save him and loses his balance, tumbling all the way down.

Atlas: Juuuustin!




Justin: Fuuuuuuck...




Atlas: I'm spinning, I can't breathe...




...



...



Lainey: Care to accompany a lady for a dip in the cool, inviting water?




Feeling playful, Lainey strips down to the bare necessities, urging Seamus to join.

Lainey: Come on, it'll be liberating!




Seamus: (to himself) Don't be a dork, Seamus. Don't be such a dork.




Lainey: Don't worry, I won't watch.

Seamus: Uh, yeah... ok.




Stripped of all inhibitions, Seamus and Lainey approach the water as two souls who are
about to embark on an incredible new journey together.




Lainey: See, it's not so bad once you get in.

Hearts racing, Seamus pulls Lainey in closer for an intimate kiss.




Lainey: What's wrong, is everything alright?

Seamus: I'm sorry, I don't think I can do this. My brother is still out there somewhere.




Basking in the warmth of the sun, the young couple lay side by side, taking in the
moment for all it's worth.

Seamus: No hard feelings, right?

Lainey: We have the rest of our lives on this island, there'll be other days.

Justin doesn't always think things out too well, but I think the heat is starting to get to the pixels in their heads. :p Alice probably wouldn't be this bad off without the stress, and it definitely isn't helping her.
