  1. Two down two to go..

    Yesterday's Echocardiogram showed a good healthy heart..ready for battle!
    Just completed the brain MRI..No matter how much I warn them they still try to access my vein two or three times before asking someone else to try..The MRI was long, but I listened to some good ole classic country. *(Willie Nelson)* 
    Tuesday's PET scan will last three times longer..I wonder if I can nap through some of it? I already asked them to give the department a heads up that a lady with crazy hard to get veins will be coming in..and to have the best they got ready to put that line in!

    Keep the prayers coming please..I really need to pass these scans in order to keep this beast under control!

    I got two days off from tests and appointments so I plan to get into my Sims games!! :ExcitedSmiley:

  6. Ella's Oath

    I downloaded a lot from The Sims 4 Community named 'Robert's Oath' by: Rhisk (Real name- Rhen). She and I got to chatting a bit when she commented that she was also a Christian...Since her lot had an interesting back story in the description, I decided to build on it and write it out! (She indicated that she would enjoy that). So here it is! CHAPTER ONE: ROBERT... Robert and Ella met in college. Although he was a science major and she was barely passing her classes, they were drawn to one another the way that opposites sometimes will. Shortly after college the two married and Ella gave birth to Ophelia! While Robert excelled at his career in the science field, working from home much of the time; spending more and more time in the lab that he had custom built in the basement of the cozy little house. Their daughter was the center of life for the lonely Ella. Ella kept herself busy with Ophelia, but Robert began to notice some odd behavior in his young wife as of late..that is, when he bothered to notice her at all. Although she took excellent care of their child, he would often find her talking to herself and acting strangely. One time he even caught her clenching her fists and shouting at the wall! Out of concern for his wife as well as the need for him to be able to concentrate fully on his research downstairs without worrying about his child's safety..Robert ordered an experimental medication from a colleague at work. He began slipping the pills into Ella's coffee in the mornings. Soon the house was once again peaceful as Ophelia went off to school and Ella settled into a quiet routine of cooking and cleaning and napping much of the day. He seldom seen her as she stopped visiting him in the lab. Without distractions during the day, Robert worked tirelessly on his research and he would leave the house each evening to work in the lab at the science institute. Indeed, Robert barely slept, napping here and there throughout the day. His mood becoming even darker as he delved deeper and deeper into his research. "I know your very busy, but... "Please, Daddy..would you come play with me outside for awhile?" Although he loved his family in his own way, the domestic life was more Ella's thing, and Robert did not feel guilty about not spending time with her and Ophelia. His passion was science.. Ella knew that when they met. Besides, he knew she was happy to stay home with their daughter. In fact, she was trying to talk Robert into having more kids soon. He did not have to tell her that he didn't want any more kids, because with the pills that he was giving her she would not be able to conceive anyway. This peaceful existence was proving to be quite productive as Robert had managed to publish a paper in SimScience Magazine regarding a breakthrough he made in the field of science and medicine..specifically concerning the new epidemic that some people referred to as the Vampire Fever, or Sanguinary Syndrome. But Robert's peace would soon be shattered when he received an urgent call from an old friend from their college days. CHAPTER TWO: ELLA Ella was born into a middle-class, all-American family. The only child of a faithful minister and his sweet wife whom everyone in the neighborhood seemed to call "Mom". Ella and her parents had a close relationship until after college when Ella introduced Robert to her little family. Despite all efforts made by her mom and dad to make Robert feel like one of the family, Robert just seemed determined to belittle and offend them and their faith at every turn. Ella still regrets the decision she made to follow him out of the house that hot August day..The last time she seen her parents in all these years. Except the day when Ophelia was born and the aging couple snuck into the hospital to see their new grandchild. Though she's had to live with the regret of choosing Robert over her family, Ella doesn't regret the little girl whom she brought into the world and promised to give her everything she would need..and that included a home with a father in it! So she stayed. Even when she found out about the 'other woman' that Robert was spending his nights with at the lab..she stayed..for Ophelia. When Ella confronted him about the affair, Robert used his prestige and position in the community to threaten her, saying she would never see their daughter again if she left. She believed him. She knew better than to doubt what he said was true. She had nothing to fight back with..she had nothing except Ophelia..For her she would sacrifice her own life, for Ophelia, she would do anything! So she stayed, Even when it felt as though her sanity was unraveling sometimes, she stayed..she didn't fight back..she couldn't. CHAPTER THREE: MICHAL Michal grew up in the same small town as Ella. His parents were both members of Ella's dad's church. He loved Ella's parents but after his own father's death, Michal began to doubt his faith, and despite the church's kindness shown to he and his mother, he just could not make his peace with God. When he entered college the year following his dad's death, he was delighted to see Ella there. She was taking some of his fine art classes. Even though they had been childhood friends, he always regretted not telling her how he really felt about her as the years went by and they both grew into adulthood. Then when he realized that his good friend, Robert showed romantic interest in Ella..Well, how stupid could Michal have been to actually be the "good guy" and introduce them! Now seven years later here he is needing to call his old college buddy to ask for his help. But, regardless of what he has become, Michal realizes that he is looking forward to seeing Ella again. If only it were under better circumstances. If only he had listened to Ella's father all those years ago! if only.. Now he had become the monster that he was warned about..A creature that thirsted after human blood, a demon-possessed madman when the thirst hit, but his heart grew heavier and heavier with each kill. Could there still be redemption for him after all he had done? Michal doubted it. At first when it happened, he resisted with everything he had! He thought of his mother's loving heart, and encouraging nature..Would she understand him now? More likely the knowledge of his ..condition would kill her. And when he thought of his loving father whom he knew must be in his God's heaven now..what would he say to his son if he were still here? Certainly Michal had many demons to fight against..both within and outside of himself! All he could do was hope that Robert could help cure him, and soon..before he killed again! So that's the beginning of our story, Folks..Please try to ignore the grammatical errors.. I want to continue this story line, and I can't when I'm always trying to second guess my grammar, lol! I will try to submit some more soon after Jeff's vacation from work this week. Hope you have enjoyed it so far! Again credit to Rhen for her lovely family and home lot!
  7. 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.
  8. 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

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

    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).
  13. 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?

  16. 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!
  17. 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.

  19. 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!
  20. Ella's Oath

    I know, right. but we mustn't forget this is a story about redemption.. justice tinged with mercy.. hopefully

    Also, it looks like they will not be controllable like in the Sims 3. I like that, because then you can't predict what they might do (like in TS2).
  22. Ella's Oath

    Lol hopefully later tonight, I will have more up! Im hoping there is still some love left in Robert's heart..I want all my characters to have happy endings.. but that may not be possible.
  23. Ella's Oath

    "He obviously fed from me..but..but..Surely, you aren't thinking that this child isn't yours!?" Robert? Ignoring her, he led her to an examining table and instructed her to lie down. Once he examined the sample he took from Ella under the microscope, he turned to her and confirmed that she was indeed with child. Under normal conditions this announcement would have made Ella jump for joy..But she felt only fear and, although she hated the feeling, She felt guilty. She should have never gone to see Michal alone that day! Standing barefoot on the cold linoleum, Ella repeated the story of the events of that day almost two months prior. But neither she nor Michal seemed to have any memory of the events leading up to her collapse. She claimed she went to Michal to convince him to return to their home. Then she remembered Michal running from the room, she chasing after him and then waking up from the sofa. When he later asked Michal what he did to Ella, Michal became frustrated with Robert as he exclaimed once again that the last thing he recalled was excusing himself and thinking that Ella had left when he went back to his resting cell..and then the blood and Ella laying there on the floor! But Michal quickly turned away from Robert when he told him that Ella was pregnant, and he suspected that Michal had taken more than blood from his wife! One week later... Robert arranged a special visit from Ophelia. The child looked at her mother sitting at the table next to her father and knew that something was wrong with her. Ella, normally very cheerful and happy to see Ophelia, hardly spoke and seldom smiled throughout that dinner at the big family dining table. Robert, solemnly explained to their young daughter that her mother was very ill, and this would be the last time for a few months that Ophelia would see her. This brought tears to the child's eyes, and Ella had to run from the room. Not only overcome with emotion, but because the morning sickness was very bad with this pregnancy, and the events of that week had made everything so much worse! As she wretched into the toilet she let loose her tears and agony! She begged God to stop whatever was happening to her family..She wanted so badly to have this child..but what kind of a woman does not know who the father of her child is? Ella had only known one man her entire life. Robert, her husband! Even back in college, her Christian upbringing kept her on the straight and narrow. She waited until their wedding night. And now here she was on her bathroom floor, her beloved daughter could not even remain in the same house with her, and who knows what would happen once she gave birth..was it even human? Ella brushed her teeth and returned to the living room to say good-bye to Ophelia. Robert felt it was best not to tell Ophelia about the pregnancy, so Ella tried to remain distant enough from her when they hugged, since she was beginning to show already. It was like torture not to kneel down and squeeze her daughter close..and the puzzled look on Ophelia's little face broke Ella's heart, but she knew that if Robert's suspicions were right, it might not be safe for Ophelia to be around the house until after it was all over and they at least had some idea what they might be dealing with. Over the next three months, Robert fed Michal synthetic plasma through his port, but he decided it was best to remove the port after a slight infection..That was days ago and Michal was growing hungrier for human blood by the day and would beg Robert to help him as he could not withstand it any longer. "Can't you at least bring me some blood from the hospital or something? You removed my feeding port, but I must eat! Robert told him that he would eat..before the night was out, he would eat. "But I need my port, Robert..If I taste the blood from the hospital, I will turn into the dark form again, and you may not be able to control me then. Robert only walked away leaving Michal alone in the darkness of the lab..alone with his thoughts. His thoughts turned to Ella, as they often did..Ella with her kind eyes and bright smile..and then the memory of her lying in blood..and him leaning over her..Could it be true? Could he be the father of her child? And if so..would Robert still try to find a cure, or was he only being kept alive in order to be punished by him now
  24. Ella's Oath

    Throughout the following weeks, Michal spent his days locked inside the small cell that Robert had custom built. He slept most of the time, with only his dreams to keep him company. He would awake to the soft clicking of the keyboard as Robert worked. The sounds of the lab became a familiar lullabye to him as he lay on the small cot behind bars that he hoped would hold him if the demon took control again. Robert spent nights in the lab downstairs. He had taken a leave from his job at the Science facility while he worked tirelessly pouring over everything he could get his hands on pertaining to the virus. Again and again Ella pleaded with her husband to please allow her to visit Michal as he was securely behind iron bars, but Robert was adamant that she stay away. She visited Ophelia each day after school. Careful to hide the marks on her neck that seemed would never fade. Ophelia was always happy to see her, but would cry after Ella left. She wished she could stay there with her daughter, but Robert felt it was best to limit contact outside of the house until they knew the extent of Ella's exposure to the illness. Speaking of the dreaded illness that had managed to transform her dear friend into some sort of other-worldly creature; Ella had some concerns of her own. Despite feeling stronger and more vibrant than she had in a long time, she started noticing a few strange things. For one, her eyes were growing more accustomed to the dark but at the same time, more sensitive to daylight. She found she needed to wear sunglasses if she ventured outside for very long. She was afraid to tell Robert, so she decided she would keep this all to herself for now. The other changes, however, she knew she would not be able to hide for too much longer. She prayed Robert would be delighted with her news, but when she finally mustered the courage to tell him, she could have never predicted he would react the way he did! It was a cool evening seven weeks after that dreaded day when Ella told Robert that she had something very urgent to discuss with him. Robert, "Please don't freak out, but.. ..I'm pregnant. Robert not only freaked out, but he nearly dragged poor Ella into the bedroom and told her to stay put! Scared, she complied. When Robert returned he had a hospital gown in his hand. He tossed it onto the bed beside the confused Ella. "But, ..but Robert, I can just make an appointment for an exam with my OB/GYN! There's no need for, well, whatever this is for!" she said as she picked up the gown. Robert insisted that he and he alone must handle this situation. This made Ella furious and throwing the gown back at him she said that she didn't understand why he was acting this way! He should be happy! She always wanted to give Ophelia a little brother or sister! Why couldn't he be happy? The look that crossed his handsome face was hard to discipher, but his next words left her spinning.. "It's not possible that you are pregnant, Ella..I gave you medication to calm you down months ago, and the side effect was sterility!" Once Ella recovered her senses and could speak..She managed to smile and exclaim that it is a miracle then! But Robert only shook his head and for the hundreth time asked her exactly what happened that day with Michal. Ella picked up the gown and numbly put it on her trembling body. She followed her husband down into the basement. She tried to catch a glimpse of Michal, but Robert, anticipating that she would do just that was quick to inform her that he was not in his cell, but not to worry..he was contained. Ella's eyes filled up with tears as she explained once again that she could not remember what happened..and neither could Michal!
