Eye Candy

Oliver had a desire to visit Pleasant Graveyard just before dawn. He wasn’t really sure why but his two feet were taking him to the Pleasant Graveyard fast. As he strolled around, he was positive he could feel some spirits.

Back at the Plets household, Andy attempted to ruin Ulrich’s morning by complaining about their dirty house.

“You clean toilets in your work but you don’t clean our own toilets,” Andy told Ulrich.

“I find that offensive,” Ulrich’s voice trembled a little.

“Heck, our kitchen is so filthy with all the mess you four are making,” Andy said in a matter-of-fact tone.

Ulrich is humiliated by Andy.

“I’ll leave the responsibility to you to fix this problem,” Andy said as he turned away.

Feeling it was not going to do any good in trying to talk about, Ulrich went into their bathrooms to see if Andy was right. There they were – filthy toilets.

Not wanting Andy to gain satisfaction if he cleaned the toilets, Ulrich decided not to touch them. At the same time, he did not like a filthy home. He grabbed his phone and called the town services.

“Sunset Valley Town Services. How may I help you?” a very formal voice spoke on the other line.

“Hi, this is Ulrich Plets and I was wondering if you can send a maid over in our residence,” Ulrich said with a slight doubt in what he was doing.

“That would be no problem. We’ll send one of our maids in your home right away.”

Ulrich gave their address and retreated into his bedroom. He brought out the book his boss gave him to read.

“I’m not going to be a latrine cleaner anymore,” he uttered to himself as he flipped the pages.

He had only read less than ten pages when the doorbell rang. It was the maid he requested over the phone.

“My name is Grady Elfman. I’m your new maid,” the man greeted.

As Ulrich led Grady inside, he knew his days of cleaning latrines would soon be over.

While Ulrich lie on his bed reading the book, the other four went about with their jobs. Andy and Oliver attended a Logic class after work.

Charismatic Indy exercised his skill by meeting other residents of Sunset Valley. In the park he found Christopher Steel, a young gentleman working in the military career.

Schmoozer Erick was promoted to Filing Clerk. Thinking he deserved a reward for it, he decided to obtain the Eye Candy lifetime reward. Eye Candy would give people better mood when he’s around time.

Blair Wainwright was also at the Old Pier Beach and it was she who first experienced Erick’s new sparkly trait.

A familiar face was approaching Erick. It was Catherine McDreamy.

Perhaps it was the Eye Candy that pulled her to Erick. He told Catherine of his promotion to Filing Clerk.

“I think you deserve it,” she said with a smile.

Wanting to push his luck a little further, Erick tried to invite Catherine to a picnic.

Back at their home, Andy and Ulrich were talking once again. Andy praised Ulrich’s decision to hire a maid.

Second brother Erick was not feeling happy like Ulrich at that moment. Catherine had rejected his invitation and so he was left to have a picnic alone. All was not lost though. Catherine had taught Erick a new recipe just before she left.

Indy was the last to return home with his new acquaintance, Christopher Steel.

Indy was not the best cook in the house. His poor cooking skill soon caused fire.

Hungry and tired, he tried to divert the focus away from the fire and danced with Christopher.

As Indy answered his ringing phone, Christopher called it a night and left. Indy’s focus was not on the phone call.

“Mr. Indy Plets, we are inviting you to participate in our cooking competition,” the person on the phone said with a very jovial voice.

With a terrible and fire-causing cooking skill, how could he get invited to a competition like that.

Despite his odds, Indy accepted the invitation. Tired and hungry but surprised with his just received phone call, Indy went to bed and snored along with his brothers.
