It was an ordinary day in Willow Springs when The Sickness suddenly hit.
A new strain of the llama flu, it spread rapidly.
Then the deaths began. Medical experts scrambled to find a vaccine, to find a cure, anything to fight the sudden, deadly illness striking down entire families.
As with any illness, there were those who just got lucky, and those who had a natural immunity.
The population dwindled, leaving only a few Sims left on Earth.
This is their story.
Alyssa Reynolds has always wanted to be in a band, and when she went to see her favorite local band, Sims Against the Plumbob, she noticed their guitarist wasn’t feeling so hot.
She’d been crushing on the lead singer for a long time too, and when she got a chance to hang out with him after the show, she mentioned that she was a pretty good guitarist if they needed a back-up.
She came away from the show with an audition and a date with Ezekiel!
Her relationship with Ezekiel took off, and so did her music career! The original guitarist got better, but Ezekiel decided he liked Alyssa’s sound better.
A few months into the relationship, she and her roommate (Vanessa Harrison) were hanging out with their respective boyfriends by the lake.
“Hey,” Vanessa said, glancing at the stranger nearby. “Do you see that big bruise on that guy’s arm?”
Alyssa stole a peek, then began uneasily, “Isn’t that one of the symptoms of something going around? I feel like I saw something about that on the news.”
Vanessa’s boyfriend Zaiden said, “Yeah, I feel like I saw something like that, too…”
“We better head home,” said Ezekiel. “Don’t want to catch anything. Our band has a show next weekend, we can’t afford to miss it.”
These are the last Sims on Earth.
