1.7 Top of the World

Posted by on September 2, 2013

Since I somehow washed up on and island and made a life for myself, the same thing could happen to Terrence, right? He’s probably living his own life someplace that would be painfully close if we only knew about each other. Each of us, living our our lives separately, but joined in our hearts.

I know it’s a fantasy, but sometimes it keeps me going. There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think of him.

I’m a lousy cook.

But they eat it anyway.

I guess, after you’ve been hungry, burnt pancakes are still the food of the gods.

Timi’s prized piece of salvage is a working telescope that he pulled from some wreckage that washed up near the shore. I think it might have been pirate plunder. Even if it didn’t work, it would be beautiful as a piece of art.

He scans the sky almost every night. I don’t know if it’s the heavens he searches or the horizon for signs of other ships.

I guess what we have now is something you could kinda call life.

We dug a permanent latrine

And plumbing from the well to the bathtub.

And presto, an outhouse!

I am on top of the world.

This kind of wrecks the mood, but I had to share this one. That bathtub was a Sims Medieval conversion that was apparently not updated for Pets.

Thus, this outtake:

    Now that song is stuck in my head… Anyway, another beautiful chapter. It feels good to see that there is still hope for them, and that they are trying to make the best out of their situation. Especially for the two "kids".

    Echo, that really doesn't look like a comfortable way to bathe! Having said that, the house is really coming together and it's nice to see this little band of survivors becoming a family.

    That outtake is awesome!

    It's a very sweet little family they've created there.
