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.

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.

Welcome back to another chapter of Random Paths! In the last chapter, Kreia found herself pregnant for a second time and the pregnancy turned out to be a very hard one. It put Kreia on bed rest with doctor’s orders of absolutely no stress. Miranda aged to a toddler and right at the end of the chapter, something went wrong. And now, on with the story.

Brett cried. He was supposed to have five kids, a large farm, and a loving wife who would help him out in the fields and with raising his large family. His father had cautioned him against staying true to that dream as it was a hard one, but an easy dream wasn’t worth striving for.

“Sorry I couldn’t get here sooner, Uncle Brett,” Wolfgang said, pulling his uncle into a hug.
