Something about me was changing, I could feel subtle differences. I was at Junior and Grand’s describing a getaway car we would be using for an evil heist. Then I heard a baby crying.
I went to the top of the stairs and there I found little Kiki Morris at the edge of doom.
I immediatey grabbed her up out of the way of danger. I was surprised at my sudden concern for this child, usually I only thought of myself.
Pater called to say he would be leaving in just a few days but he urgently wanted me to meet him in Central Park. I agreed.
I was upset about Pater leaving and I ate a whole gallon of ice cream. I thought I was so evil, with a heart of stone but all of these emotions were overwhelming me.
Pater and I met up at Central Park. He was not alone.
Pater: Baby, I want you to meet Lorcus and Freya Notorious. They are my good friends and I want you to get to know them better. They will be your trusted mentors while I’m away.
They were an odd-looking pair in their matching white lab coats and long rubber gloves. But they took an immediate interest in me and were very kind. I learned Lorcus was a medical researcher and Freya was a scientist. I wonder if they were evil like most Notorious.
My feelings for Xander grew deeper everyday. He felt the same. After a long walk on the beach, he told me loved me.
Baby: Xander, I love you, too!
But now what? We had nowhere to go. Xander lived with his parents and my house was a tiny shack with a single bed.
I decided to meet with my new friend Freya and ask her advice. She seemed to have a very good relationship with her man so I felt certain she would know what I should do about Xander.
Baby: Xander and I are in love. I want to ask him to move in but my house, well, please come over and see it and tell me what I can do to make it better.
Freya was a little shocked when she came over the next day and saw the conditions I was living in.
Freya: The shabby chic look is not very romantic, Baby. Pater told me you have had a lot of success working with computers. Why don’t you build a new house?
Freya was right. I had made thousands in Simoleans from my hacking work. I was a little embarrassed that Freya had brought up my criminal activity. I wasn’t sure what she thought of my evil doings. But if she didn’t approve, she wouldn’t be my friend.
I decided to take Freya’s advice. My neighborhood was very upscale and the Homeowner’s Association had been threatening me with legal action if I didn’t improve my lot. Now was the time to build a better life for me and Xander.
At last the new house was finished and Xander came to visit. I was so excited! I wanted him to stay over but I didn’t know if I would have the courage to ask him to spend the night.
As usual, I had no finesse. He had no sooner set foot in the house than I blurted out:
Baby: Xander, don’t go home, stay with me!
He agreed but when it came time to go to bed, he wandered into the guest room and went to sleep in the small bed. I was very disappointed.
I fell asleep in my own room but later in the night, I was awakened by the door opening. I turned on the light and there was Xander, standing in my bedroom in his boxer shorts.
Xander: Baby, can I stay with you?
We shared a long kiss. But that was all. Xander stayed through the night but we were very chaste. I didn’t want to rush into anything I couldn’t handle.
But maybe in the morning, I would ask him to move in!
