Generation 1 – Chapter 3
The time in France started off with Lucky and Elvira going in opposite directions. Lucky wanted to increase his athletic skill and Elvira had an adventure to follow. He promised to meet her later.
Elvira went to the Celtic Ruins. She started her adventure by checking her map.
Lucky continued to jog. He was so into jogging he forgot about time.
Elvira collected a lot of treasure, relics and a heart shaped keystone on her way to this room. She first had to clear some rubble, but behind the rocks she found this wall that looked a little different that the rest. She examined it and found a secret door.
Using the heart shaped keystone, Elvira was able to unlock this door to the treasures beyond.
Elvira could use Lucky’s help at this point. These statues are heavy. After moving a couple of statues she found a plate on the floor with the shape of footprints on it. She stood on the plate and stairs opened up.
Fatigued, Lucky read the newspaper by the side of the road. Then he remember he was supposed to be meeting Elvira.
He then hurried to meet Elvira in the tomb at the bottom of the stairs. ‘Do you forgive me for being late?’ he said and they joined in an embrace and a gentle kiss.
Dividing the large tomb between them, Lucky went one way and Elvira went the other. Lucky found some treasure, relics and a heart shaped keystone. This sounds familiar. He placed the keystone in the wall and the door was unlocked. More treasure beyond. Meanwhile Elvira was finding gems and relics of her own. She also found a couple of bottles of nectar.
This time Lucky was there to push the statue onto the plate. This unlocked a door into the next room.
They were both very tired. They found a room with a tent in it. Elvira was worried because there was also a skeleton in the room, but Lucky promised to look after her…
… and look after her he did.
The next morning, after a breakfast of dried food morsels and a shower from a can, they set off to explore the room they had unlocked the night before. Elvira found a money bag and checked out this hole in the floor. Meanwhile Lucky found some gold coins and relics. Elvira found the object of her mission, but they both wanted to continue.
Elvira braved a dive pool and found a tunnel that she swam through. When on the other side, she found herself in a small room. She grabbed the treasure and decided rather than brave the tunnel again she would see what was behind the rubble. On the other side Lucky had the same idea.
Another room found them with more rubble to clear. The family that clears rubble together…
Once the rubble was cleared they moved the statues and a hidden door opened up. In the next room they found a money bag and some gold coins. There was also a sarcophagus. Lucky decided to look inside as Elvira looked on. He was pulled inside…
…and the sarcophagus rocked.
He shot out and grabbed at Elvira to balance himslef.
His head was spinning.
He felt dizzy. ‘I’m so glad you’re okay, Honey’ said Elvira.
Oh I want to go home.
But in the next room he wasn’t deterred from trying again. So with this tomb pillaged, off they went with their treasure in their inventory to the Art Gallery.
‘Oh darling we’ve done so well.’ she said as he kissed her.
After looking around in the Gallery a little they jogged back to town.
Elvira jogged to the town centre to deliver the item she found to complete the adventure.
Lucky jogged back to base camp to make dinner.
But when Elvira got back, dinner waited on the counter. Elvira smiled at Lucky and he couldn’t resist her.
A good time was had by all.
The next moring Lucky enjoyed a good laugh in the kitchen.
‘What can I get up to today?’ he thought.
They jogged to the Relic store. Lucky sold the loot in his inventory and then served some nectar. Elvira was next to sell all the goodies in her inventory.
They sat out in the back garden of the relic store and enjoy their nectar.
It was a very good year. ‘We had a very good day yesterday’ Lucky said.
‘Such a good day. What can we do today to match it?’ Elvira replied.
‘Well I was thinking maybe we could do a little excavating and I hear we can find some gems just laying around on the ground. You up for it?’
Hunger then set in and the went to the Cafe. Lucky ordered Cheese Plate for both of them.
Where they had a lovely lunch together and worked out the details of the day.
Next on the agenda it was time to collect some rocks from around the town. Both Elvira and Lucky jogged over the countryside looking for relics, ore and gems. They ended up at the Nectary harvesting fruits and vegetables to take back home to sell.
Vacation over, they were whisked home where Elvira had a game of Gnubb with Tina. She had missed her so much.
Benny decided this was a good time to rummage through the neighbours trash. He managed to collect a lot of scrap for his Mom.
Elvira has received recognition from City Hall for her inventions. They gave her a trophy so she proudly displays it in her living room.
They had a wonderful time on they belated honeymoon. They gathered so much loot while there that they came home $16,000 Simoleons richer.
‘I think it’s time to call a Contractor and an Interior Designer and put an addition on the house.’ Elvira said to Lucky. ‘I’m tired of sleeping in a tent and I want a proper bed.’
‘Anything, my Love’ he said. ‘Happy Anniversary!’
