Guy Wrightley and Zoe Zimmerman: Week 3

In this block of flats are four households, but only one of them is of interest to us right now. Who is it?
        Zoe Zimmerman...
       ...and Guy Wrightley.Both are on Permanent Platinum and will only be controlled by me when it comes to paying the bills, greeting the neighbours and ordering groceries.
       On Monday, Zoe greets Helena Stacks.       
She later has a lone bowl of chili con carne. Almost every time Zoe or Guy prepare a meal, it is a single plate; I have observed them making group meals only once or twice.
        Lavender Greenman walks by this Monday afternoon and is also greeted by Zoe... is Perseida Powers.
        Both Zoe and Guy are quite good at cleaning; that has not changed since the last round.
        On Tuesday morning, I have Guy request a repair from the landlord: the shower is broken.
        He makes himself an omelette for breakfast.
       Zoe pays the regular Tuesday bills.
        When Guy comes home from work, he is so tired that he has to lay down for a while. Zoe patiently waits for him to wake up.
       But when Ellen Frost and Deirde Dreamer turn up, she is happy to sit down with them for a meal.
        Guy and Zoe often interact romantically, but they have not yet rolled the want to get married.
        Only on Wednesday does Zoe clean up the plates from yesterday's meal with her friends.
        Ginger Newson is her guest today, while Guy is at work.
       A tender kiss for the general when he returns home :-)
        On Thursday, Zoe takes the rubbish out.
        She then has a sponge bath at the kitchen sink in spite of there not anyone or anything blocking access to the shower upstairs.       
It is Friday, and Zoe is ill - yet again. This couple is very prone to diseases, flus and colds; nearly all the time either one or both of them suffers coughing fits and all the rest of it.
       That does not stop them from cleaning, though.
        Or sharing romantic moments!
        While cleaning up old newspapers on Saturday morning, Zoe seems to be thinking Guy could have done that just as well.
        But even worse is Guy's behaviour when he steals the food Zoe was preparing! (It really happened like this - Zoe was cooking when Guy stepped in front of her, opened the stove and took the plate of salmon out!)
        After he starts on the plate, apparently he realizes that this is not how a gentleman should behave towards his lady, and lets Zoe sit down to finish. He is still starving, though.
        And Zoe generously leaves the remaining food on her plate to him - must be love!
        Later that day, Guy shows that he is perfectly well capable of making his own food.
        Zoe is saved from starving only by the pizza the landlord has ordered for his custom block party.
        Speaking of parties, both Zoe and Guy want to throw parties all the time. Today, Guy invites over five of his closest friends. Matthew Hart and Frances Worthington arrive on their broomsticks at the same time :-)
        Everyone heads for bags of crisps.       
When their guests leave, Zoe and Guy sit in the yard to enjoy the balmy summer night and finish the leftover pizza.
        Sunday morning sees Zoe cleaning the bathroom.

        For a change, the two of them work in the kitchen together; Zoe makes the salad while Guy has a pot of chili con carne bubbling away on the stove.

        The week ends with Guy stargazing while Zoe is already in bed.

Guy is still young enough to be "fertile" - will anything happen with his stargazing? How is Zoe going to feel about him when she turns into an Elder early on in their next week?


  1. did he getting taken? exciting? cliffhanger! lovely read.

    1. He was not abducted when I stopped the game - but who knows what happens when I next enter that lot (which will be in about a year, I guess!) :-)
