Catching Up, Act II
Here we are. I'm pretty proud of myself, it actually looks like a house you'd see in real life.
And in case you didn't notice, there's a second story now. The stairs and entrance to the garage are located where the living room used to be. Unfortunately, we had to sell the entire living room set for funds, but at least we have an upstairs now! Let's check it out.
There's nothing here!
Because we're poor!
Oh and we couldn't afford a ceiling to separate the first and second floor, so all these hanging lights are hanging by their wires.
It's a heavy work day, so it's time for just the daily grind.
Oh, and we finished this hole now. We have a tunnel system from our house to downtown now! Here's how it works.
Jump into the hole.
Pop out from another.
Anyways, it's the last day for the playoffs, so Blaise hops in her new car.
This is how garages work. Door open, car drive out.
Go place, do stuff.
As Blaise leaves, the phone rings. Gengis picks it up.
Oh, it's Dennis!
...Uh, no. Gengis doesn't know how your house was vaporized. You did pay your bills on time, right?
Oh, and look who came by to visit, it's Redneck Derrick!
Gengis and Derrick sit down for some moldy pancakes and--
Gengis heads to the source of the call.
This house again!?
For goodness sake, people. Just move or something.
Oh. Apparently they were having a party when a ghost decided to visit.
Gengis puts on a show for the crowd.
Wait a second...it's that guy who got blown up when we had our little rampage downtown! He still hasn't changed out of those clothes yet?
Oh well, let's see how Blaise is doing.
Alright! She made the team!
And for some reason she's dancing at the club now. I just can't turn my back on you for two seconds, can I?
Wait a second, wasn't Derrick at our house a few minutes ago?
Wow, this guy's fast.
Anyways, we completed the construction on the Hell Hole Home. Yay.
All I wanted was the nifty little balcony. I'll make a patio when we ever get the dough to afford a backyard.
Anyways, let's skip ahead to morning and finish off those pan...
Oh. We never put those pancakes away when Derrick visited...They've been out all day and night since then.
Oh well, it's a good excuse to use our microwave.
Microwaves can make quick yet satisfying meals, but you don't get better at cooking with it, obviously. But you can also use it to make meals that use meat, like hot dogs or hamburgers, without burning it.
Of course, because Blaise is a slob she can eat rotten food regardless.
You know, Gengis. You got her into one of your hobbies, gardening.
And she's a bit sore from the playoffs...
You see what I'm getting, at Gengis?
No, not that! Look, Blaise will explain after she answers the phone.
What? Who's this guy? How'd he get our number?
Apparently he's coming over. Blaise looks a bit worried...
I'm sure it's nothing, so Blaise heads back to Gengis.
We're going to train Gengis to his very first athletic skill point. We can do it!
When you train other people, you don't get anything. But the people you train get fit and athletic faster, and tire less easily.
No! What are you doing!?
We were so close!
Oh sure, blame the washer for being too loud and distracting you. Excuses, excuses.
Look, just keep running.
Blaise will be back soon, somebody's at the door.
Who's this loser? He looks like a bum.
Wait, wasn't that the guy who was watching when Blaise was beating up that punk kid?
What? What do you mean you've been looking everywhere for us?
Oh. Oh joy, it's Blaise's ex.
Because Blaise is dating Gengis, her ex right here instantly hates Gengis and is furious at Blaise.
Blaise doesn't put up with any of his crap, and tells him off right away.
Good god, this guy is berzerk.
Look, this is the last time Blaise will tell you. You need to leave, now
--Oh you did not just slap her.IT IS SO ON, NOW
Blaise ex submits literally ten seconds in.
Blaise gave him an enormous beating. He gets up holding his back and whining.
Then her ex then runs off crying about Blaise.
I can't believe that!
Gengis, did you hear what just happened outside!?
Wait, didn't we tell you to keep running? What are you doing!?
Oh well. Blaise sits down and tells Gengis what happens and Gengis comforts her.
Don't worry, Blaise. Forget about the piece of trash boyfriend, you have Gengis now. He won't think less of you. Nothing's less than Gengis.
Here, just lie down and relax. That'll calm your nerves.
Just sit here and watch Luke for a...
There's been so many changes in Gengis's life recently, he just...forgot about Luke.
This is a sad day in Gengis's life.
It's okay, Gengis. Look, Blaise will take care of Luke.
...No? You want to do it yourself? Okay, Gengis.
You were a good goldfish, Luke. Maybe even the best.
He's in a better place now.
A happier place.
A cleaner place.
Gengis needs some alone time for now.
If you have any suggestions on how Gengis or Blaise should spend tomorrow, additions or changes in their clothing or house, or anything else just post them in this thread.
