Gothic Resort Insanity: Episode 1


Enjoy Your Stay, Liam Gelman

Yesterday started like any other day with all of us rising  early to tend to our duties at the Resort.  I should say some of us rise earlier than others.

One of the first up is Dove who feeds and attends to the animals before things get busy.  She says its best to attend to the unicorns especially when its quiet since they are so temperamental.  An unhappy unicorn has been known to run back into the wild so I can see her point.

She also collects the eggs for Celeste and takes care of the chickens.  Celeste also gets up really early so she’ll have breakfast ready by the time everyone else gets up.

TS3W 2013-05-21 15-50-56-59

The rest of us get up a little later but by 7 we all are up and hard at work behind the scenes.

TS3W 2013-05-19 23-05-38-39

The first thing I make it a point to do every day is to feed Anubis so if anyone is foolish enough to hop the fence they hopefully will be safe.  Then I’d tend the normal, noncarnivorous plants in the garden.  That morning was no different.

TS3W 2013-05-20 22-35-30-81

I then took charge of Linnet so Dove could give someone horseback riding lessons.

TS3W 2013-05-21 15-53-59-02

Me and Linnet then manned the front desk so Bev could help Emma out with the housekeeping.  We all pitch in where we need to.  We’re a good team as well as family.

TS3W 2013-05-21 16-40-15-25

I was there to greet my dad when he showed up.  After all the years the Resort has been opened I finally got him to visit.  He’s been busy with some drama, and of course my younger brothers and sisters, so I’m surprised he’s actually finally taking a vacation.  I guess mentioning Bernard’s twins would be becoming teenagers this weekend was what made him want to come by now.   We hadn’t seen each other since me and Bernard took the Trio so if felt a little strange to see him untouched by time.   To tell the truth I’m not really sure how old he is now but he’s got to be almost 70 or close to it.

TS3W 2013-05-21 16-50-38-44

“Hi Dad.  You’re looking good.”

“Youth potions tend to do that.  The years have treated you well son.”

“Thanks.  I’m glad you decided to come visit.  The others are busy working but they’ll be just as excited to see you.”

TS3W 2013-05-21 16-45-51-43

“This must be Linnet.  She’s cute.  Can I hold her?”

“Sure but she’s kind of shy so don’t be upset if she cries.”

TS3W 2013-05-22 16-14-20-88

“Hi there Linnet.  I’m your grandpa.  It’s nice to finally meet you.”

“I see the lower lip starting to quiver.  Maybe I should take her back.”

TS3W 2013-05-22 16-18-56-66

“There’s no need.  I know just how to turn that frown into a smile.”

TS3W 2013-05-22 16-55-51-95

“See now we’re friends aren’t we Sweetheart?”

“She’s not quite talking yet.”

I had to hand it to my Dad.  He was good with kids.  I shouldn’t have been surprised since he’s had so many himself.  I wonder if I’ll ever meet all of siblings?  I have 5, the Queen twins and triplets here, that none of us have really spent time with.  It’s a shame since the Vampire Trio changed their diapers.  I think I might invite them to the birthday.  It might be fun.

TS3W 2013-05-22 16-35-13-45

Seeing Linnet was so good with Dad when I saw a young red-headed woman entering the hotel I felt comfortable leaving her with him even though she wasn’t very good with strangers in general.

“Can I help you Miss.”

TS3W 2013-05-22 16-39-21-97

“I was wondering if you have any vacancies.  The hotel my boss thought was booked for the whole week was never confirmed properly so I need somewhere to stay for three days.”

“I can check and see if you give me a moment.  Can I ask your name Miss?”

“Aliki, Aliki Jennings.  Thanks so much.”

TS3W 2013-05-22 17-19-32-59

While I went off to check the computer I saw her walk over to my Dad and by the look on his face I could see he wasn’t disappointed.  I know how he can be with women so I was hoping he’d decided to take it easy while he was here.

“Your daughter is so cute.”

“Acutually she’s my granddaughter.”

“How can she be your granddaughter.  You don’t look old enough.”

TS3W 2013-05-22 17-30-32-32

“That’s a lovely compliment coming from a lovely lady.  I’ve taken a youth potion believe it or not.”

“Really?”

“Yes.”

I think my Dad’s always on the lookout for another Baby Momma for his challenge and has hopes Ms. Jennings will be interested.  I almost hope I’m wrong because if it doesn’t go well it will mean drama for my guests. 

TS3W 2013-05-22 16-53-18-89

“Miss Jennings I do have a room if you’d like to step over to the desk I can check you in.”

“Oh wonderful!  Thanks.”

“Dad, you won’t mind entertaining Lin for a bit will you?”

TS3W 2013-05-22 16-17-58-36

“Not at all Al.  I’ll explore a bit and Lin here will be my tour guide.”

“Dad?  He’s your father?  He looks younger than you.” 

“Its kind of a long story.”

“Miss Jennings, since we’ll be staying in the same hotel maybe I’ll run into you later and tell you the whole convoluted tale.”

He was smooth.   I had to hand it to him on that front.

TS3W 2013-05-22 16-29-39-01

“Now you have me curious I have to hear it.  By the way what’s your name?”

“Liam.  I’ll see you around, Aliki was it?”

“That’s right.”

“Do you mind if I call you by your first name?”

“Not at all.”

He was already on a first name basis with her before I ushered her off to her room.

TS3W 2013-05-22 16-57-39-06

“Let me show you to your room Ms. Jennings.”

Once I’d entered things properly and made sure she was settled I went in search of my Dad.

TS3W 2013-05-23 20-27-04-47

I found him outside working with Linnet on talking.  She was actually saying some words.   I guess he’s just got a way with kids since it was so hard for even Dove and I to get her to talk.

TS3W 2013-05-23 21-54-54-77

That night when we sat down to eat in the dining room Dad finally got to meet Bernard’s family.  It was a school night thought and since we all have to get up early we were ready to retire right after.  This left Dad to his own devices which makes me worry.

TS3W 2013-05-23 22-17-35-53

“Hey Aliki.  Want to hear that story?  My kids and grandkids are heading to bed and I’m not ready to go bed yet.  I’m not used to being alone.”

“Oh really?  You don’t have a wife back home do you?”

“No.  I’m not the marrying kind but I do enjoy the company of pretty women.  I meant I’m usually surrounded by my kids.”

“How many do you have.  35 and I’m looking to have more now that the youngest are teens.  Like I said its a long story.”

“Now I’m curious and have to hear that story.  I can’t be up too late though since my conference has some morning lectures I want to attend.”

The last thing I saw was him flirting with that red-head again.  I suppose it sounds stupid but worrying about my Resort’s reputation is sort of second nature to me.

TS3W 2013-05-23 22-07-21-44

In a way this place is like my oldest child.   I want to protect it as much as I did Linnet, and even Axel.  That meant a part of my mind was wondering just what my Dad was up to with Ms. Jennings.

TS3W 2013-05-23 22-24-19-96

I couldn’t babysit him though and I didn’t want to.  He’s an adult.

TS3W 2013-05-16 09-06-27-52

Thankfully Dove knew just what I needed to get my mind off of what my Dad was up to.  She wanted to make love and I was happy to forget anything but the feel of her slight frame pressing up eagerly against mine and her feather-light caresses.

TS3W 2013-05-16 15-43-32-35

It was easy to fall asleep in her embrace.  I feel such peace when I’m alone with her in the after-glow.  Its something almost magical so its something I hope to keep.

The next day started out much like the others.

TS3W 2013-05-24 00-50-20-09

My Dad didn’t though and Emma swore when she walked past my Dad’s room, with its ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign up on the door, she could hear moans coming from inside and our new guests room hadn’t been slept in.

TS3W 2013-05-24 11-43-05-05

I decided to talk to my Dad later but today I still had my work to get done first.

TS3W 2013-05-24 14-41-55-73

Since most of the guests went out working or sight seeing and the kids were in school Dad took a little time to lounge at the pool and swim.

TS3W 2013-05-24 15-49-15-84

Once I got done I figured it was time for our talk and so I invited him to a game of pool.

“So Dad, what did you do with the rest of your evening last night?”

TS3W 2013-05-24 15-47-24-22

“I thought you saw me talking to Aliki.  I told her all about my challenge.  She’s a nice lady, she even had read some of the stuff I’ve written, and said she wanted to help me with my challenge.  I figure you can guess what else happened.”

TS3W 2013-05-24 15-45-01-02

“You got to promise me you aren’t going to try and get anymore of my guests involved in your challenge.  I don’t want hurt feelings and misunderstandings making drama for them.  Besides they know you’re family so it will reflect on all of us if something goes bad.”

“Relax son.  She’s leaving in another couple of days and then she has no plans to return here.  She’ll be coming to my house not here.  She’ll be out of your hair.”

“You still haven’t promised not to seduce anymore of my guests.”

TS3W 2013-05-24 15-48-14-13

“Fine.  I promise now get back to the damn game.”

TS3W 2013-05-24 15-51-45-27

“Not until you tell me why you still have your sunglasses on.”

“I don’t want to loose them and I’ve not wanted to walk all the way back to my room.  This place is huge with long hallways.”

TS3W 2013-05-24 16-29-55-53

We ended the evening with an informal commeration of one of our long time guests’ birthdays.  Ashlee Steel-Begonia was born and raised here.  Her birthday is just the day before my neice and nephew’s so we opted to just have some ice cream and hot chocolate.  Tomorrow we’re treating the celebration as being for all of them.  Besides it’s Love Day so it already was going to be a big day of celebration.

TS3W 2013-05-24 17-11-18-97

Ashlee really is almost like family.

After the hot chocolate and ice cream we all went to bed.

TS3W 2013-05-23 23-08-39-58

I think I saw Ms. Jenning sneak off with my Dad again though.  You can’t teach an old dog new tricks, I guess.   As long as he doesn’t mess around with anyone but her it should be fine.  Tomorrow is her last day.

He has to have more self-control than I give him credit for.  Right?
