  1. Stranger than normal day at our house.....

    Get a Roku and you can watch on your television screen! I never used to watch tv before, and now..Well..I need to pace myself or else nothing else gets done! I'm so sorry you're having such problems. I wish I could help, but I know nothing about W10. You find a fix..but, seriously, I watch youtube on the roku I find it is so much easier. They run between $30-$50 here in the U.S.
  2. Ella's Oath

    Awe, Thanks ladies! I am waiting for that inspiration bug to bite again, and as soon as it does you will get another! I know I can't wait for November to get here so I can play with pets..That looks like lots to inspire thw ole imagination in that one!
  3. Ella's Oath

    Yes, Olivia and the children are his family now..Of course Ophelia still loves her real daddy, Robert..But he (Robert) did cross that line way too many times. Yes, We can always hope that a person finds forgiveness and peace no matter how bad they have been..but that only happens if they are truly sorry..Which, funny enough, as I played out the game Robert kept getting sadder and sadder, even breaking down crying on the toilet one time..so it made me want to have pity on him. Then I thought about the character that was killed and I knew he needed justice, so Robert had to pay for that, so I couldn't allow him to end up with Ella and the family..I believed that Michal was the most deserving of getting the happy family at the end. Thanks so much for following the story..It was great fun! And yes, I think I will do this again, lol! And yes, Marbi..I too can't believe anyone wants my creations either! But you are and always have been such an inspiration to me with your awesome talent! I Love love love that steampunk style lot you made! I am scouting out community lots and/or households to inspire a story-line..That's how I started this one.
  4. Ella's Oath

    One week later.. After being locked in the basement and she and the baby forced to sleep in the cell adjoining Michal's, Ella knew that Robert had completely lost his mind. She now realized that the story Robert told her about needing to be protected because of some genetic mutation was all a lie! She promised Olivia that somehow, some way she would get them out of there ..and they would be reunited with Ophelia. Ella had been working on a plan to do this.. She had been hacking into Robert's computer when she heard faint voices upstairs..She barely made out the Detective saying something to Robert about a search warrant.. Ella and Michal waited, not knowing how long it would take for the detective to find them in the basement. She reassured Michal that no matter what happened she would make sure that they would get out of there and that they would find a cure for him..She swore an oath to Michal that they would be a family, that he would finally be free..She had been successful in contacting her Father on the computer and he was on his way that very moment. The detective finished his report. Happy to close this case. (Thanks to Miss Simmies, and a very timely phone call from Ella Fox's Father.) He wrote about his apprehension of the suspect, one Robert Fox who was found guilty of illegal imprisonment of his wife and their friend, Michal.. who were being held in home-made prison cells in the basement of their home. Upon further investigation evidence was found and collected pertaining to the disappearance of a local man who was believed to be dead; although the remains had mysteriously disappeared. Robert Fox was implicated in that suspected homicide. The investigation also discovered two minors who were living in the home, although the eldest female, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fox, was spending a lot of time with her neighbor, Miss Lisa Simmies for the last several months. The youngest, a female infant, was found to be in good health. The children were left in the custody of their mother, Mrs. Ella Fox. Night after night, Robert sat in his cell, haunted by memories of all that he had lost..and haunted by the ghost of the man whose life he had taken. The judge sentenced him to ten years. The killing of the man was deemed manslaughter as the nature of his death was considered an indirect result from the virus. Therefore, Michal was not found guilty in this case. Robert continued to be counseled by Ella's father throughout the trial and beyond. Robert accepted his fate as a criminal, but recognized his need for forgiveness..His soul had become darkened, and he knew his only hope was in Jesus, the only one who could truly cleanse him of all his wickedness. Two years later... Da-da-da-da! Oh, Ollie..Come here, Sweetie-Pie! Thank You, Lord for my family! THE END

    Good you were able to get that errand done in less time..before panic struck! I was outside spray painting a lamp when I saw it get dark, then I remembered, so I took myself and Bud inside, told God I thought he was pretty awesome to have set everything in such perfect order..even though I didn't see it in real time..(Too many tall trees here, so I didn't buy the glasses).
  9. Ella's Oath

    Robert seen the look of terror cross Ella's face and he knew immediately what was happening. He told her to wait in the adjoining cell where he had been watching her through the monitor. He needed to check on the delivery room to make sure everything was still sterile. He sat with her through the contractions. It was not at all a difficult labor compared to Ophelia..In fact, Ella seemed quite calm throughout. The same could not be said for Michal who was beside himself with worry! He wished he could leave his cell to be by Ella's side as she gave birth. A sweet little baby girl came into their strange world down there in the basement of the seemingly normal little family home..They named her Olivia. And she was also (seemingly) normal! For Ella it was love at first sight, and she could not wait for Ophelia to meet her little sister! Robert informed Michal of the child's arrival. He asked after Ella's well being and was also informed that she was up and feeding the infant already! But Robert refused to allow Michal to see them until he was sure that the baby was alright and only after Michal recieved a feeding infusion.. Just to be on the safe side. Michal did not argue with him. While Ella rested on the small cot in the lab, Robert finished up the last of his work on the virus cure. He needed to test the formula on Michal..but he did not want to cure him anymore..No, Robert realized how much of a threat Michal was to him and his family after all. He simply did not want to chance Ella choosing Michal over him after Michal was cured! But he had no idea what he was to do with the man! He made the decision to contact a colleage and have him test the formula out on one of his patients instead. That way he could have it patented, and after FDA approval it could be released to the medical community. But he would have to devise a plan so that Ella did not find out about it, at least not until he could figure out what to do with Michal! Surely it would be on the news. Robert had to make up an excuse why Ella could not be allowed to leave the lab. He would have to use the baby as that excuse. Maybe he would tell Ella that she and the baby could not be exposed to the outside world because of some mutated cells that were found in thier blood. Of course he had tested the child for mutation and her blood showed nothing abnormal, but Ella didn't know that. And although Ella's result did show a slight elevation in certain proteins, he was sure she was perfectly healthy. Actually, she was healthier than anyone he'd ever treated in his entire career! He also tested the baby's blood and his own for a paternity match, and the result was inconclusive. He would try again when she was a bit older as sometimes the results were not as reliable at such a young age. Although she was very disappointed, Ella did not question Robert's advise to stay in the lab with the baby for a few days until he could figure out what was causing their "mutation"..He assured Ella that neither one of them appeared to be in any kind of health danger. One good thing was that she could now visit with Michal everyday. But her heart sank when she was told that she could not see Ophelia yet, at least not for the remainder of that week. Meanwhile... Ophelia was spending Saturday afternoon watching TV with her Auntie Lisa. Although they were not really related, the little girl considered the woman to be like an aunt to her. She would often babysit Ophelia, and when mama got so sick Auntie Lisa did not hesitate to take the child in. After all she only lived a few houses down the road, and it was nice for awhile when Ella could visit Ophelia there every day. It was getting harder as the months went by however to help Ophelia understand that she could not visit her mama until her father gave her the ok to do so. Today was one of those days when Ophelia was having a hard time and she was really missing her parents and her home. Ophelia went outside to play while her Auntie sat on the sofa and thought about the child's dilemma. The woman's heart went out for the poor little thing. She wished she had more answers for her. She really did not know what was happening over at her neighbor's house. All she could do was pray for the young family. Well, that and..maybe something else.. She could no longer ignore the nagging feeling that something simply was not right in the quiet little neighborhood that she'd called home for the last twenty four years. Not since that man disappeared a few months ago, and the detective had been questioning her and other residents about him. Apparently just weeks before he disappeared, some folks claimed they saw some strange creature running through the streets one evening and it looked like he was carrying someone. The eye witness accounts could not be sure if it was a man or woman he carried however, because they claimed he moved at an unnatural speed. Lisa was growing more and more suspicious of the strange occurrences..and especially considering the mysterious illness that seemed to have Ophelia's mother locked away in her home where she could not even see her own daughter! Maybe it was time she made a phone call to the detective..Something was not right..she could feel it in her bones. When the detective arrived at the little cottage, Lisa invited him to sit in the small living room. She thanked him for coming by so quickly and then explained that she did not know whether or not she could provide any useful information concerning the strange events in the neighborhood in recent months.. The kindly old gentleman listened patiently to the woman, and although he agreed many of the things she and the other neighborhood residents had been noticing were very strange..It wasn't until he was about to leave when she mentioned something that really caught his attention: The woman's neice, Ophelia had told her about something she'd seen on her mother's neck the last time she visited with her. Did you say, bite marks?

  12. Ella's Oath

    That is so very true! I will try to post the next installment tomorrow evening..My dog Bud is sick so I have to have him looked at tomorrow. Please say a prayer for him if you will. I think I have an ending for this story in mind now! P.S..It sure is hard getting kids in this game to stay put for their snapshots!
  13. Ella's Oath

    Yes, Robert is a hard one. I wanted to make him very driven, but I think he crossed the line when he made Michal kill that poor man! There is only one possible outcome in the story..Ella will have to be strong for her children.. I am hoping this story proves that there can be monsters in people that you would never suspect, and then those who are noticed as monsters sometimes are only that way because they were made that way, and it is what is in the heart that can change a person for the good or for bad. Robert continued to moniter his wife's pregnancy. Ella kept searching his eyes for some sign of tenderness during the examinations..She would sometimes catch a little spark whenever he touched her abdomen and the baby moved..She even thought she saw a hint of a smile one time. Certainly he was reminded of when she carried Ophelia..Ella sure was. But as the days and weeks dragged on, she was becoming more and more weary of what lay ahead for her and this child. Would Robert learn to accept the baby in time? Would he find a cure for Michal? The questions seemed endless, and Ella was too exhausted to think anymore. Although Ella was still frightened after seeing what Michal did to that poor man, she did manage to gather up enough courage and ask Robert if she could visit with Michal after one of her weekly examinations. She nearly fell over when Robert agreed to allow her to see Michal! Maybe it was because Robert was so busy these days working on his research that he just didn't have time to argue with her about it..or maybe it was because the closer she came to delivery, the more Robert seemed to treat her with kindness..It was almost like the old days back when Ophelia was born! Except Robert was even more of a workaholic now, but that was understandable since he was intent on finding a cure to end this nightmare..especially with the baby on the way, and Michal's need to feed. Thank God Robert surgically installed a new feeding port so that Michal could recieve blood from the hospital without turning into the monster and without anyone getting hurt! Ella could never forget that horrible sight she was forced to witness! And she knew it was done only to teach her some sort of lesson, and to punish her and Michal for a betrayal neither one of them even planned. So it was early on a Saturday morning after Robert examined her when she stepped into the cell with Michal. She felt the first twinge almost immediately, but brushed it off as nervousness. Michal looked at Ophelia with such tenderness..he smiled as his eyes filled with tears at the sight of her. With hesitation he asked Ella if it was alright to touch her..She smiled and nodded. He was so happy to feel the little life inside struggling to be free, and he knew how the little one must feel, as he too wanted to be free from his cell..He had been in there for nine months now too! Michal could not resist caressing the face that had come to haunt him in his dreams all these months. He had feared he might never see Ella again after she saw him feed that night. The friends expressed their concerns for one another, and embracing they clung to each other for several minutes in the dark little cell. Robert was watching on the monitor that he had installed in the adjacent cell. He cringed as he seen the lovers embrace. "I knew it!" he said under his breath. It was obvious to Robert that Ella and Michal were more than just friends! And just as he was beginning to trust Ella again..even toying with the idea that the child she carried might actually be his..that maybe there was a chance that nothing happened between the two nine months ago. He knew a blood test to check for paternity would be necessary. He felt his anger slipping away into something much more dangerous as far as he was concerned..a deep dark sadness. Robert was frightened at how he felt at the thought of losing Ella, and at the thought of her carrying another man's baby.
  14. Ella's Oath

    Ella sat on her bed and listened while Robert left the house. She would wait until the coast was clear to carry out her plan. Ella crept down the basement stairs certain that Robert had left hours ago..but she was unaware that he was watching her as she approached Michal's cell. Ella had no idea what she would say to Michal after such a long time apart. Michal heard the sound of soft footsteps coming toward him..He felt panic..God forbid Ella should see him now! Ella stood frozen in front of the cell. She opened her mouth to ask in confusion who was in there with Michal? Robert took that opportunity to make his presence known. At first he had wondered what he would do when he saw his wife quietly slipping down the basement stairs. He decided to hide behind some filing cabinets and watch. "So, Just where are you going, My Dear.." he asked, startling her. She spun around to face Robert and then back toward the cell where Michal stood behind a man, clenching and unclenching his fists..she could tell Michal was struggling to maintain some control against the instinct to feed. She was so scared, so sick at the thought of what was happening to the poor man. As she watched Michal slowly lower his head over the other man..she did not even notice that she had sat down in the chair that Robert had pulled up for her. She found it hard to tear her eyes away from the horrifying sight before her! But Ella doubled over in the chair as she heard the sound of the man dropping to the floor drained of his lifeblood. Suddenly she realized that Robert was standing next to her laughing like a maniac and telling her to watch as her lover showed his true nature! Ella was watching alright..but her attention was fully on her husband who stood before her acting just as much like a monster himself! The only difference between the monster in the cell and the one who stood freely in front of her, was only one of them had a choice in what they were doing!
  15. Ella's Oath
