A Short Story: Magic Mike

Vet Participant

Mike sat straight up in bed, abruptly awakened by a very bizarre dream.

Jostling Rose, he whispered loudly, “Ipo (sweetheart), wake up!  I had the most curious dream.”

Rubbing her eyes into focus, Rose sat up and listened intently as her dear hubby began to recount his mysterious dream.

Her heart was deeply concerned for him.

Mike had been under a lot of stress lately.

The move to Sualni was wonderful,

for the most part anyway!

In order to purchase their new home, they had sold some of the gems that had been collected for Dagon’s tribute.**

They had hoped to quickly recover the gems but Mike soon discovered that Sulani has very limited gemstone resources and some of the gemstone resources are not good to wish to encounter (uhh .. Lava bombs).

Mike had gone to the center of the island to see Dagon.  He wanted to plead their case and to beseech Dagon to consider sending them home without fulfilling the required 100 gemstone tribute.

Mercy is not Dagon’s strong suit.

Mike’s pleas fell on deaf ears.  (Does Dagon even have ears? I Dunno!)

There would be no compromise … 100 gemstones and that was final!

“I was sound asleep,” Mike went on.

“When I heard the song of the island spirits beacon me to come.

I went to them and found myself enveloped in a serene blue light.

The feeling was exhilarating.

They whispered blessings to me and all of a sudden …

I was transported to a lovely beach.

Two island natives, I think they were Menehune,” he leaned in to whisper cautiously,

“who showed me to a very strange tree.

They urged me to enter and I do not know why, BUT I DID.

Once inside, I began to fall.

I fell deeper and deeper into the center of the tree.

07-23-19_6-57-34 PM

At the bottom, I found myself the midst of a most unusual glade.

I have never seen such a place.

It was so beautiful.

The very air tingled magic.

07-23-19_6-57-35 PM

There in the middle of the glade was another tree.

I could feel the island spirits urging me to enter and so again, I do not know why but I went in.

07-23-19_8-30-15 PM

I felt my way around inside of the tree.

It was pitch black and I could not see anything.

Not even the entrance that I had just passed thru.

What felt like a long time passed and

just when I feared I would never find my way out, I was back in the glade and all around me lay bright gemstones for Dagon’s tribute.

07-23-19_10-04-23 PM

Then I woke up!

OH BOY!

What a dream!

Must have been those spicy fish tacos I had for dinner last night!

I am so glad that is over!”

  1. ~ Hahahahaha! I should not laugh, but poor Mike (What we put our Sims through!)
    ~ At least he has the Gems they need, but will they want to leave?
    ~ Lovely magic story, but poor Mike will be back to normal in 5 days, drink plenty of water, or swim a lot, & spend more time in the Sun, & he should be fine! 😉

  2. Cute story! I hope they got to keep the gems! I can’t recall if I’ve ever had any of my sims eat the forbidden fruit and turn into a plant sim. If I did it was right around the time they had the challenge!

    1. Yep, wait til he gets a gander at himself in a mirror! I am sincerely hopeful that I have the correct info on Sims 4 plant Sims .. I am told he will be back to normal in a few days .. if not I need a new game plan.

  3. This was such a cute story! I’m glad he got the gems in the end, but it’s unfortunate that he turned into a PlantSim (or maybe he’s really fortunate, depending on how you look at it). So funny that he thinks it was all just a ream!

      1. Sorry for the excessive comments. At first I thought I only wrote my typo comment, then I wrote another unnecessary comment fixing said typo, even though I already corrected it in the previous one – feel free to delete those! Maybe you’ll have to cheat him back to normal or use MC Command Centre (there is a setting to add/remove occults!

  5. Plant sim Mike, too funny! A dream or perhaps not. I do hope they got the gemstones to give to the Dragon. But then will they have to leave the island? In a way, that will be good, but in another way, sad.

  6. The twist was hilarious. I love the last line. Gee… when he looks in the mirror! And his wife just letting him tell his story without interrupting. Better to get the information than to scream or knock him out. Loved it!

    1. LOL yes .. TY so much .. I have been trying to head back in game all night to see how he is doing .. last I saw his preggo wife was loving the new look (he was a bit worried that she keep trying to nibble his ears tho)
