1.7 – Determination

"BUT MR BOOK, WHY CAN'T I FLY? WHY CAN'T I SOAR WITH THE OTHER BIRDS?"

“BUT MR BOOK, WHY CAN’T I FLY? WHY CAN’T I SOAR WITH THE OTHER BIRDS?”

Marisa tried to contain herself. It was the first time she had ever seen someone from Earth (Earthling) act like this, and it was hilarious to her. She managed to continue writing for ten or so minutes before the next outburst came out from the woman behind her.

"CURSE THE BIRDS! CURSE THE AEROPLANES, THEY CAN FLY BUT I CANNOT. THIS IS SIMPLY NOT FAIR."

“CURSE THE BIRDS! CURSE THE AEROPLANES, THEY CAN FLY BUT I CANNOT. THIS IS SIMPLY NOT FAIR.”

Human species are not suitable for flying unless assisted by a contraption, Marisa thought. However, the woman began distracting Marisa more and more with her outbursts, and it didn’t help that her disguise had been itching her the entire day. If she could only take it off for a second, but Marisa knew that if she did, her cover would be blown in an instant.

Marisa sighed as she returned back to writing her novel, which was coming along quite well. It looked as if her novel was roughly 45% complet-

"I WILL CREEP UP ON THOSE BIRDS AND TRAP THEM WITH CLAWS. THEY WILL BECOME MY PREY AS I FEAST ON THEM."

“I WILL CREEP UP ON THOSE BIRDS AND TRAP THEM WITH CLAWS. THEY WILL BECOME MY PREY AS I FEAST ON THEM.”

Yeah… roughly 45% complete. (I never knew Sims can interrupt writing?!)

Marsia was trembling, as laughter had built up inside of her. Little outbursts of her laughter could be heard if you listened close while you could see her mouth quivering with the attempts of trying to keep her mouth shut. The trembling soon died down and Marisa thought it was over. It was not.

“HA HA HA HA HA HA!” Marisa cackled loudly, and it was obvious that the woman behind her was displeased. Marisa dared not to look behind her, but she could roughly get the idea of what the woman looked like behind her.

"SHALL I PUT YOU IN THE BIRD TRAP AS WELL? I'VE NEVER TASTED HUMAN FLESH BEFORE. IT MIGHT BE NICE, JUST LIKE CHICKEN."

“SHALL I PUT YOU IN THE BIRD TRAP AS WELL? I’VE NEVER TASTED HUMAN FLESH BEFORE. IT MIGHT BE NICE, JUST LIKE CHICKEN.”

Good thing I’m not human, thought Marisa.

However, just as she thought her troubles were over, she turned to her right and immediately turned back. It was him.

The guy that Marisa mentioned before her and Nathan eloped, the one who kept calling Nathan in the middle of the night. He was here, and he certainly knew exactly who Marisa was.

"Hey Marisa, do you know why Nathan hasn't returned any of my calls?"

“Hey Marisa, do you know why Nathan hasn’t returned any of my calls?”

Marisa slowly rose up from her seat as she took her flash drive out of the computer. She made sure the computer was logged off before she ran the heck out of the library and ran so fast that there was smoke trailing after her!

I. Need. A. Computer. Marisa panted as she arrived back at the house. But, before she could get her own computer, she had to overcome a giant obstacle that could prevent her from acquiring such a luxury. Nathan.

Marisa planned to ask him as they ate.

Synchronized Eating, the brand new sport coming to the Olympics in -10 years!

“Nathan, my love?” Marisa smiled at Nathan as he smiled back too. Today was a productive day in the garden as Nathan finally had mastered the art of Grafting and was able to graft certain plants together to produce Dragonfruit! Nathan isn’t sure what he wants to do with these Dragon Fruits yet other than to graft them again to get a Cow Plant Berry!

“Yes, Honey bear?” Nathan smoothly said, Marisa’s confidence grew and she knew what she wanted and she knew that this could lead up to her acquiring it.

“Can I have a computer?” She pleaded with her eyes wide open.

“Catch me a fish and you can have it.” Marisa’s eyes turned to horror. Marisa hated fish, or any creature to do with the sea. She only liked eating them but seeing them in tanks or alive in any matter just made her squirm. However, Marisa was determined, no matter what it took, she was going to get her computer.

“OKAY!”

The next morning, she arrived at the lake, where she had cast out her line.

"Ew! There's bugs and fish everywhere! OW! My arm just tugged... and there it is again!

“Ew! There’s bugs and fish everywhere! OW! My arm just tugged… and there it is again!

Marisa had caught onto something! She pulled and pulled with all her might and finally, a medium sized bass came out of the water! Marisa held it up in the sky as it squirmed, and immediately let go after realising the horror of the squirming fish.

She had a nearby fisherman kill it and put it in a bag so that she wouldn’t look at it or have to be scared because it kept moving.

And, as Nathan promised, Marisa was able to get her computer.

*Queue Zelda Item Acquired Music*

But, Marisa didn’t use the computer solely for writing.

"No! You're supposed to go here, UGH the lag!"

“No! You’re supposed to go here, UGH the lag!”

Marisa’s red glow grew stronger and stronger as she played, she had managed to officially make herself sleep deprived which triggered her to collapse to the floor and fall asleep.

"Shall I wake her up? Let's not. Hahaha."

“Shall I wake her up? Let’s not. Hahaha.”

Nathan laughed as he picked Marisa up and carried her to their bed, where they then fell asleep together until the morning.

    Ah this chapter stuck in my memory, or rather the scene with the insane sim in the library did, it’s like I read it yesterday. Love it so much, the humor of her responses, mentally, to the woman, and her own good naturedness about the whole thing.
