Race for Gold
My wife and I love to game together. This part of our relationship I never saw coming. We come from very different walks of life. Let’s call it a complimentary relationship. Up until we came together over 20 years ago now, she never held a gaming paddle in her life. Until one day I came home from work to find her glued to my playstation racing Need for Speed’s Carbon.
I was shocked. And worried! She was going to take over the franchise, and there was nothing I could do about it. It only took her a few weeks and she was delighted to be neck and neck with me on the track. I was far from amused yet a part of me, deep down was pleased. We’ve never really been competitive with each other. But she likes it. Maybe a little too much yet I delight in her delight, if you know what I mean. She loves beating me at my own game. I’d likely be offended if it wasn’t so much fun.
Anyhow, we’ve discovered a new game; a game within the game and it’s a race for gold! We both prestiged to silver the first frame under Mysterious Artifacts, Room of Requirements II. The other day we realized we were both very close to prestiging our first gold frame. Not only is it the same aforementioned frame, but we are both waiting for the same fragments, Hagrid’s Umbrella. So it’s a race for gold and we are only 2 fragments apart. The look she gave me when she realized, had me howling in laughter. I doubt I’m gonna win this race, but it’ll be fun just taking part.
