Previous Update about Chelsea / Next Update about Chelsea
Chelsea was practicing her speech for the fund raiser in her new apartment, and wondering why she even bothered.
It seemed that her real job description as Todd Phillips’ campaign manager, was as a babysitter.
She arrived at his penthouse early, to make sure all the arrangements were going as planned for the fundraising black tie event, only to find he had let the butler go, and none of the staff had arrived.
Chelsea hustled, and got a substitute entertainer and bar tender, but when guests started to arrive, they still hadn’t shown.
Then, Chelsea’s real work began: keeping an eye on Senator Phillips to try to limit the damage of his indiscretions.
Chelsea could tell he was interested in the lawyer, Alexis Jones, but when he hit on her, Alexis quietly declined.
Then Todd turned his attention to a very flirty Laney McElveen. That could get ugly in a skinny minute, Chealsea thought, since Laney certainly would regret anything inappropriate she ended up doing here.
Perhaps Laney was just happy to be out of the house and talking to adults. Chelsea had seen her at the park with her family, and it was obvious that although Laney prioritized the rearing of her children, being with them for extended periods made her very tense.
As the party wound down, Chelsea was able to talk with Dr. Ono a little, but she still didn’t feel ready to really get behind Todd’s campaign for re-election.
It was long after midnight when Chelsea wrapped up her work there and returned to her apartment.
The next week, Senator Phillips was due to make an appearance at Geek Con. When it was time for his speech, Chelsea found him playing 3D BlikBlok.
After the speech, they strategized a little about which new events and media appearances to book.
Chelsea showed Todd some of the recent feedback the campaign had received, hoping to motivate him to watch his image a little.
When she got home later that night, she ranted a little to Julien about work, and he fixed her a drink and listened sympathetically.
And fixed her some eggs
Chelsea started to feel a lot better watching his antics as he cooked.
Now Chelsea’s really in the political career, instead of the Secret Agent career (it was added with City Living). It was funny that Todd tried to secure his butler’s vote, and then he refused. The next day he had a new butler.
