Chapter 2.4 – Time

Welcome back to another chapter of Random Paths! In the last chapter, the SUA kidnapped Miranda in order to get Eva to not testify against Owen, Quentin, and Rafael. It did not work due to the scheming of Ian Destansi and Zachariah Smith. However, in the process Zachariah got shot, but Miranda made it out alive and physically unharmed. And now on with the chapter!

The summer went by slowly. Miranda, instead of returning to her apartment in Appaloosa Plains where she lived alone, stayed in Sim City with cousin Wolfgang and family for a few months. Neither of the Wallis girls were wanting the summer to end. Miranda wasn’t ready to be alone but had a kindergarten class to teach. And Eva had her Junior year of college to go to. Sean had graduated that summer and was off to the Graduate School at the University of Sim City to continue his education. Which left Eva with no friends at the University of Bridgeport. And there was still the SUA to consider. She had put three members in jail with her testimony.

Chapter 2.3 – Intimidation

Welcome back to another chapter of Random Paths! In the last chapter, Eva got three body guards to help her go to and from classes and really connected with Thomas Destansi, one of those guards. There was one known attempt at her life when they took down Samuel, but their lack of knowledge on the lab instructor proved the plan’s undoing. At the end of the chapter, the trial for Owen Maguire and the others from the SUA that had orchestrated the attack on her was about to start and Eva had gotten a phone call. And now on with the story.

Eva didn’t know the number but answered it anyway. It could be the prosecutor wanting to finalize her testimony since she was to be the first witness.

Chapter 2.2 – Security

Welcome back to another chapter of Random Paths! In the last chapter, Eva recovered from her attack and was discharged. Wolfgang and partner Joshua DeLange, arrested Owen Maguire and Quentin Tammany for conspiracy to commit murder and arrested the guy who attacked Eva. At the very end of the chapter, Sean was trying to get Eva to relax about returning to classes when there was a knock on the door. And now on with the story.

He opened the door and took a step back, not expecting who he saw. It was three Sims. One mundane and two vampires. Which meant it wasn’t the Sims United Alliance. “How… how may I help you?”

Chapter 2.1 – Waking a Sleeping Giant

Welcome back to another chapter of Random Paths! In the last chapter we found out that Wolfgang Rand took over as the guardian of Miranda and Eva after Brett fell into a deep depression. The girls had grown and both were off at college. During Eva’s second semester of her sophomore year, she attended a meeting of the Sims United Alliance with her best friend Owen Maguire. After attempting to bow out of the group as it was not her cup of tea, she was informed the only way to leave was to die. And now on with the story.

Sean called Eva’s phone again. It was an hour after their scheduled chat time and she had not called, texted, or e-mailed saying she was going to be late or going to miss it. And she wasn’t answering her phone. It went straight to voice mail without any ringing. And that was the part that worried Sean the most. It wasn’t like Eva to run her phone dead.

“Oh?” Wolfgang said.

“Why don’t Miranda and Eva live with their father, your uncle?” Sean said.

Chapter 1.9 – Grief

Welcome back to another chapter of Random Paths. In the last chapter Darius Myst and Rosalind Baines were dealt with. Darius was killed and Rosalind was turned human and arrested. The cost however was Kreia’s life and Ian Destansi’s vampire status. And now on with the story.

Zachariah was a bit taken aback when Wolfgang stood up and collapsed into his shoulder crying. But Zachariah couldn’t bring himself to push the kid off. Revan had been a close friend, or at least as close a friend as either Revan or Zachariah himself allowed. And now she was dead. And she was Wolfgang’s aunt. And try as he did to avoid it, Wolfgang had become a friend.
