Climbing the Ladder September 9, 2009

After breakfast, ambitious Shai Ning wished to advance himself another rung higher on his climb to being a Chess Legend.  He made a phone call, and soon his next opponent arrived.

Next Victi...er...Opponent ;)

 

He shook hands as he gave her his name.  The woman introduced herself as Pauline Wan.  She’s older, Shai thought to himself, a lot older than any previous opponent.  In some ways it worried him.  He reminded himself however that age does not necessarily equal expertise when it comes to chess.  She was next in the rankings; how hard could it be?

I’ve decided to do a combination of snapshots and a couple mini chapters to get everything to the next good jumping off spot for a chapter.  I promise to post the mini chapters daily; I don’t want to have you waiting two days when the posts are that short.  If I feel they are just too short, I may end up posting multiples/day.

These pictures are in chronological order, but some of the mini chapters happened within this same time frame.

This is Fah Ling's first attempt at cooking.  Unlike his sisters, he went right for oven cooked stuff.

Krystal Plays on the Computer

While Ian was still bathing, Krystal’s ghost sat at the computer.  She seemed to be playing some type of game, and its sounds echoed in the quiet home.

Ian could hear the computer going, even from where he was.  When he finally got out of the bathtub, he checked the time.  It was almost dawn, he thought.  Which one of the kids could still be up?  He thought it best to go check.

Chess Game

Wii had gotten back from the park, and things were winding down at the Starr household just after midnight.  Shai was telling Elle how he was going to clean her clock one more time.  Rai, watching them play, considered that it might be time to toss out a few plants that were now barren.

If you’ve ever read Mitsy Kelder’s Tale, then you’ll appreciate this picture of a former co-worker that I saw him post up.  I had to LOL!

Wii says helloWii walked up to the young man in the park that evening.  When she had seen him, he had looked familiar to her.  Perhaps they went to the same school.  He certainly was attractive in her eyes.  It wouldn’t hurt to find out more about him.  Confidently, she said, “Hi there!  I’m Wii Shing Starr.  How are you?”

“Prety good,” he said, glancing her over.  “I’m Hasan.  Hasan Keaton.”

“Your name sounds familiar,” said Wii, pausing a moment to rack her brain.  “Say…aren’t you in my Simlish Literature class?  You sit over by the windows, don’t you?”

“You talking about Mr. Edward’s class?” Hasan asked, looking at her intently. 

“That’s it!”  exclaimed Wii.  I knew I’d seen you somewhere before!  You did that great presentation on “Murder in Pleasantview!”

Shai Challenges Cycl0n3 Sw0rd

It was the weekend.  Elle, of course was grounded, so she was stuck at home.  She groused about inside the house much of the morning.

Shai Ning, on the other hand, decided to make the most of his weekend by trying to move up in the chess ranks.  Cycl0n3 Sw0rd, long time friend of Ian’s, happened to be next on the list.  Soon he and Shai were locked into a battle of the board.

Author’s Note:  Because of the rather dark screenshots, I had to adjust both brightness and contrast to make some of these pictures more viewable.  Though some appear very bright and some may seem like they are day shots, these pictures were taken in sequence and were all shot at night.

Elle

 Elle was still at the Alto house and it was only minutes before curfew.  Patrice had already gone to bed.  She had been talking to Billy.  He was beginning to intrigue her.  She was wishing to get to know him better.  She had already found out he wasn’t seeing anyone.  She knew he was rich, and a bit of a snob.  She wanted to find out more of his traits.  The clock was starting to strike.  She was breaking curfew as of this second.

First one on

Another school day dawns, and the school bus horn blares.  Fah Ling is the first on the bus.  Perhaps he likes the fact that for a few minutes, he is alone.  School for him is difficult for his loner trait, as he has to deal with large amounts of people the whole day through.
