The Higgs - Ch. 1

Higgs_titlepage.jpg



Higgs_01.jpg

It was a warm summer day when the Higgs moved into the old townhouse downtown. Hadron taught high school science nearby, but he had bigger plans, and the city was sure to provide plenty of opportunities to further his career in the world of science. His wife, Alice, worked part-time for the local newspaper, and was very excited to see what the city had to offer her as well. Let's face it, you can report just so many bake-offs before you start to go a little nuts yourself.

Not a moment passed after signing the lease, when the sky clouded over, and the day turned dreary. Hadron couldn't help but wonder if this was a sign of things to come, and if he had made a huge mistake.


Higgs_03.jpg

Hadron tried to relax a little, and enjoy a quiet evening in their new place. He reminded himself that it wasn't a rational fear anyway, probably just anxiety.

Alice was a family Sim, and she felt this was the perfect time to try for another baby.

Alice: Ronnie, do you think I look bigger?

This sounded like a loaded question. Was she insinuating that she was pregnant, or getting fat?

Hadron played it safe and replied: No dear, I don't think so...


Higgs_05.jpg

Let's meet the twins now. Atlas was the first born, headstrong, and generally the leader of the two.


Higgs_06.jpg

Seamus is a little more reserved, and will go along with just about anything.


Higgs_07.jpg

Today they brought home a friend from school, Katrina Hart. Her family lives around the block from them. Her father is a police officer and knows Hadron through the D.A.R.E. program at school.


Higgs_08.jpg

Katrina didn't stay long, so Hadron joined the boys on the playground. Might as well enjoy the weather while it lasts, it's supposed to be a cold winter. Of course, they always say that.


Higgs_09.jpg

They played long past sundown.


Higgs_10.jpg

Seamus: Psst, Atlas! Wanna know what mom & dad do when they think we're asleep? Jump on the bed!

Atlas: Nuh uh, they're always getting on us about that.

Seamus: Uh huh, I heard them last night.


Higgs_11.jpg

After supper, Hadron and Alice helped the boys study.


Higgs_12.jpg

During the night, Alice awoke with a surprise.

Alice: See, I knew I wasn't imagining it.

Hadron: I just didn't want to get your hopes up, hun.


Higgs_13.jpg

The following morning, the boys were called down a little earlier than usual.

Seamus: What can leap tall buildings in a single bound? It's atomic-charged, hyper powered, Super CMS!!!

His name was commonly mispronounced as SEE-mus, which somehow morphed into the nickname of CMS; or Super CMS if he was in his Underoos.


Higgs_14.jpg

Hadron: Your mother and I wish to have a quick word with you before you go.

Alice: Soon, you're going to have a baby brother or sister to play with.

Seamus: Alright, I hope it's a boy!

Atlas just smiled politely.


Higgs_15.jpg

Atlas: Geez mom, why do you have to meet me here?


Higgs_16.jpg

All that studying paid off, Atlas received an A+ on his report card.


Higgs_17.jpg

The twins must be on the same brainwave, because Seamus got an A+ too!


Higgs_18.jpg

Atlas: Hey dad, lookit... lookit!

Hadron started to cry a little. Was he really that emotional?

Higgs_19.jpg

Alice: What was that all about?

Hadron: I'm allergic to dogs.

Alice: Or, did that dog bite you? Dr. Sim P.E. found that I tested positive for Lycanthrope, I've never shown any signs though. You can't be so trusting, the dogs are not what they seem.


Higgs_20.jpg

After finishing up his homework, Atlas decided to hide behind the flowers and laugh at his mom's condition.


Higgs_21.jpg

That face!


Higgs_22.jpg

Alice: Ronnie, I'm worried about Atlas. He seems so resentful. I'm afraid he might do something to the baby.


Higgs_23.jpg

He couldn't have been too upset, afterall, he had a good appetite.


Higgs_24.jpg

Hadron: Oh, Alice, and you want to have 10 kids?


Higgs_25.jpg

Since Alice pooped out early, Hadron had a few of the guys over for 'Sports Center'. Chase Hart, a hotheaded cop with an anger problem, started arguing with Robert Kim over a football play. The shouting woke up Alice, and she kindly told them to both to leave before things escalated.


Higgs_26.jpg

Since the boys' grades had improved, Hadron wanted to see about getting them enrolled into a private school. That Saturday, they set off to get the boys cleaned up before meeting with the headmaster.


Higgs_27.jpg

Alice tried to get comfortable in the waiting room.

Vivian: You know, too much caffeine isn't good for the baby!

Alice (mumbled): Oh, shut up.


Higgs_28.jpg

Atlas: Can you make me look like Davey Havok?


Higgs_29.jpg

What a letdown.


Higgs_30.jpg

Seamus had an appointment with another stylist. Atlas thought he should oversee.

Higgs_31.jpg

She gelled it up a little, Seamus was delighted.


Higgs_32.jpg

Atlas: Hey dad, can I get a new board?

Hadron: You already have one.

Atlas: Please, it's 40% off!

Hadron: No!

Higgs_33.jpg

The living statue outside the coffee shop was causing quite a stir. Everyone tried in vain to make him flinch, laugh, etc. He was really good!

Towns-person: Watch very carefully, they move slowly when you're not paying attention.>

Atlas: Ohhhh... Hey, I want to be a street performer when I grow up.

Hadron: No, you don't.


Higgs_34.jpg

Hadron: Well, we had better get a move on. We've got a big day tomorrow with the headmaster coming over and all.

Atlas hated it when his parents carried on like this, especially in public, and even more so with his mom's big belly. He thought he was going to vomit!

Higgs_35.jpg

Hadron: Before we go inside, I want to warn you. My wife is pregnant, and one of the boys isn't adjusting to the idea very well. So, if they act up...


Higgs_36.jpg

Headmaster Kim: Relax, with your standing in the field of education, you're practically a shoo-in. This visit is just a technicality.


Higgs_37.jpg

Headmaster Kim: Hmmm, from the looks of it, I'd say it's a girl. And, she's due any minute. *wink*


Higgs_38.jpg

Just as Hadron called him downstairs for dinner, Alice went into labor. Headmaster Kim was right, it was a girl. Alice named her, "Haddie", after her father.


Higgs_39.jpg

The headmaster quickly ate his dinner, announced the boys' acceptance, and left.


Higgs_40.jpg

Headmaster Kim: Sheesh, some of the things I go through for this job... they just don't pay me enough...


Higgs_41.jpg

Atlas saw him to the door, laughing behind his back the entire time. But, the poor old headmaster was too traumatized to even notice.


Higgs_42.jpg

Hadron filled Alice in with the details while cleaning up after dinner.

Hadron: Well, he acted kind of odd, but the boys got in.

Seamus: Can I talk to baby Haddie?


Higgs_43.jpg

Atlas: I knew it. All you care about is the baby! Yoo-hoo, hello?


Higgs_44.jpg

The boys decided to get back at their parents by sleeping in their room that night. That'll show 'em!
