Have a drink

Sul Sul!

Elena North here,

continuing the story about my descendants,

who struggled to live in a post-apocalyptic world.

The water was unsafe to drink,

radioactivity trickled in.

Only the liquid locked in fresh food from outside the region was safe,

and kept us from total dehydration.

Marvin wanted to find out what could make our tap water drinkable again.

01.07.17_02-06-22

01.07.17_01-02-31

He experimented like my son Patrick had done before him…

… but failed and failed again, like Patrick had done before him.

But then – ah!

The water first had to be cooled down to an „almost icy“ temperature,

and then three different liquids had to be added at one time.

That did the trick!

The water could be drunk again!

Oh, how heavenly to still one’s thirst with a good glass of water.

Or any other drink, for that matter.

Then Marivn grew older and grey as time flew by…

… and finally died of old age.

R.I.P., Marvin North.

Thanks to you, we can have safe, wonderful water and drinks again.

I need some short pause,

and then I’ll soon go on telling about my family.

Until then I remain,

sincerely yours,

Elena North

Ain’t it just a game

Hello!

Elena North here,

continuing the story about my descendants,

who struggled to live in a post-apocalyptic world.

Electricity was weak and faulty.

Still, my descendants were magically drawn in by the computer.

You do remember my granddaughter Marina’s three kids, do you?

Christian, Marvin and Enrico.

Let me tell you about Christian.

04.06.17_21-58-35

Like the other two, he grew up soon…

15.06.17_14-07-37

His brother Enrico got a partner, Victoria Winchester.

Christian stayed single, but he loved Victoria’s cooking.

01.07.17_00-26-42

01.07.17_00-01-12

Playing chess with Marvin was Christian’s way of having fun,

when electricity was off.

When it was on for a couple minutes or hours,

Christian was playing video games.

He shared one bed with his brother Marvin all his life…

03.07.17_17-57-17

03.07.17_17-42-28

Playing videogames was his life.

03.07.17_17-42-08

03.07.17_17-10-17

15.07.17_23-24-23

His brother and Victoria had a child… and then another.

15.07.17_20-57-28

15.07.17_20-16-39

15.07.17_18-30-09

While Christian knew romance only from „woohooing“ sims in „Sims Forever“.

But then:

Christian took all his knowledge about electronics and network connectivity,

and led a joint effort to restore servers, cell towers, and reconnect fiber optics.

Suddenly power was back on and super strong,

and internet times were super fast!

They could even have a TV now…

25.07.17_20-19-44

… watching the zombies roam the streets,

from a safe distance.

31.07.17_16-58-04

Meanwhile his brother Marvin had found out something interesting as well…

but I’m jumping forward.

Let me finish telling you about Christian first.

Well, he grew old and grey, and still enjoyed videogames and Vic’s cooking.

He died of old age.

R.I.P., Christian North.

Thanks to you,

we can enjoy TV and internet…

Phew, I need some rest.

And a drink.

I’ll be right back,

continuing the story.

Until then I remain,

sincerely yours,

Elena North
