As time passed, the Smiths were able to better cope with Quinn’s death. Elizabeth found simple joy in caring for the chickens in the coop around the back of the house.
With everything that had been happening, not to mention the loss of an income, the family forgot about their bills… and it wasn’t long before the repo man came to collect. He repossessed several items around the house, most notably the stove. This upset Alexandra in particular, as she was well on her way to becoming an impressive chef.
Elizabeth, on the other hand, was trying out a wide variety of skills to see what caught her interest. She thought glass blowing and jewellery-making might be for her, but her ever-changing moods meant she soon lost interest.
Meanwhile, Magenta kept working towards her lifelong dream of using her fairy powers to ‘bloom’ 100 plants. It was tiring work, but she kept at it.
The ever-present threat of zombies during the full moon led Magenta to construct a fence around the few plants that needed to be grown outside of the safety of the house. Fortunately, zombies aren’t very clever and cannot climb small fences.
