Forever flowing 3.4

  1. 1.
  2. 2. This legacy is loosely based off of Native Americans and traditions. Native American names usually linked to the tribe of that generation. This generation is Blackfoot Indians. Only females can inherit, everyone should have hobby enthusiasm in “Nature” “Music and Dance”, and “Arts and Crafts”, basically we have a lot of creative folks here. (other hobbies are acceptable too these just are the most important). Names will all be related to the tribe for that generation in some way. Or nature related names if I run out.<br />
  3. 3. We left off last chapter with Jacy-Nova being startled by something as she woke up. This was after a fun night Jacy and Siksika took their moping brother Crowfoot out to a bar just to enjoy himself to show him that there were other fish in the sea.<br />If you haven’t a clue what I’m talking about please read previous chapters. If you know exactly what I’m talking about then ONWARD!<br />
  4. 4. She started off in a sound sleep, even through all of her tossing and turning Jacy-Nova Azure was still able to catch some shuteye. The colors swirled in front of her as a scene started to appear.<br />
  5. 5. Jacy looked down at herself in the dream she was wearing the clothing of her ancestors. A look around told her that she was in an unfamiliar village. Although, by the looks of things it was a lot more familiar than she had thought.<br />
  6. 6. It was one of the Lenmanan villages from Grandma Aiyana’s stories. The thatched roves the circular design, the wooden walls, the floors were probably also pretty dark as well. Each hut had a fire in the center of the largest room and 2 or 3 other rooms, but can have up to 4. <br />
  7. 7. Jacy walked around the village as the tribe greeted her happily and excitedly. In Grandma’s stories she always would say how welcoming and open armed the Lenmanans had always been. Everyone worked together to keep the village up and running, like a large family. A little girl ran up to Jacy and gave her a hug, Jacy smiled and hugged back before she heard her name being called.<br />
  8. 8. Jacy peeked into a small hut where a red headed woman was awaiting her arrival. The woman looked familiar but Jacy couldn’t put her finger on it.<br />“Hello Jacy-Nova Azure” The woman looked at her from the fire she was sitting beside.<br />“Hello” Jacy’s voice was confused.<br />
  9. 9. “Come child, sit by the fire” The woman said.<br />Jacy felt a sudden chill run through her body which she found strange. Jacy usually never became chilly, the fact that her body was a higher temperature than most naturally it never happened. She sat down near the fire snapping her fingers trying to get sparks but none came.<br />“My name is Lenmana”<br />
  10. 10. Jacy looked up from her fingers at the woman who had introduced herself. Lenmana was one of her ancestors named for the island itself as well as the Lenmanan tribe. Jacy was unusually speechless she had so many questions for this woman, but couldn’t find a way to ask them. She thought carefully before she asked the only question she could get out of her mouth.<br />“How did I end up here?”<br />
  11. 11. “I come to you as a guide, child. You are of my granddaughter Aiyana’s line. Your mother and sister know about me as well. Jacy-Nova child of the Lenmanan tribe are in the running to become heiress”<br />“Isn’t Siksika already heiress, being the firstborn daughter?” Jacy asked her ancestor.<br />
  12. 12. “Yes Jacy-Nova that does usually become a case. Although, the line will pass through any female who is a direct descendant of my granddaughter and I. If there is any reason the first born daughter cannot take on the family, or she believes she would not be a good heiress, the line would pass through the next eligible female. If Siksika cannot take on the line, you are the next eligible female. And Goddess forbid something happens to you then your younger sister Elouise would have to take it on.” <br />
  13. 13. “Why are you telling me all of this? Is something going to happen to Siksika?” Jacy Nova said as her voice turned to worry. Why else would she be told that she was eligible to become heiress if something happened to Sika? Jacy would hate it if she lost her older sister but the woman’s words seemed to have more of a meaning than just sharing this information.<br />The woman never answered her before Jacy found herself returning back to the real world from the dream.<br />
  14. 14. Jacy woke up gasping as the woman’s words played over and over in her head. She looked at herself and found that she was still in her PJs. She removed herself from the bed as she went to check on Adoette in her room.<br />
  15. 15. Adoette was sitting on her bed reading when her cousin came into her bedroom. Looking up she was curious to the look on Jacy’s face. The quiet girl tilted her head.<br />“Are you ok Jacy?” Adoette asked.<br />“I just had a strange dream” Jacy said looking at her cousin.<br />Jacy put the book away as she patted beside her on the bed. Adoette was always one to listen to Jacy, although completely different from each other she tried to be there.<br />
  16. 16. Jacy nodded as she sat next to Adoette and looked at her. <br />“I dreamed that I was sent back to the times of our ancestors and started talking to great-great grandmother Lenmana. She had explained to me that if something happened to Siksika I am next in line for heiress and if something happens to me it will be Elouise.” Jacy explained to Adoette.<br />“Did she say what was going to happen to Sika?” Adoette’s blue eyes widened in worry.<br />
  17. 17. “I asked her but woke up before she could answer.” Jacy replied.<br />Jacy was worried about her older sister after that dream. Jacy felt she could take the heirship if she needed to. She had the confidence that she could lead the family. <br />*~~~~~*<br />
  18. 18. Jacy had noticed that Isaiah, the guy she met at the bar, was in one of her classes this semester. Why didn’t she notice him before? It was because he rarely attended class. They had been paired up on a project together in class for a few days. So Jacy-Nova had to spend some time with him. <br />
  19. 19. He was charming, which is what she liked in guys but Isaiah was also very outgoing he enjoyed going out and partying. This meant he loved to meet new people. Those were two things Jacy and Isaiah had in common.<br />
  20. 20. He also owned a motorcycle which she thought was the coolest thing. Isaiah lived in a house on the University Campus. He had two roommates one would be graduating this semester and the other one the next. Which meant Isaiah would need some new roommates.<br />
  21. 21. But the motorcycle brought her back to her boyfriend Owen. Owen loved motor vehicles and his favorites were motorcycles. Jacy remembered spending days watching him work on them as he showed her the parts. Jacy was wondering why she seemed to be attracted to guys who owned motorcycles. The difference between Owen and Isaiah was the fact that Isaiah loved to go out and party while Owen preferred to stay inside.<br />
  22. 22. Jacy thought about the two guys in her life as she tried to figure out what she could do. Some would suggest that she date the two of them at the same time. Jacy-Nova learned from her sister that no matter if it was school or a relationship, cheating was never the answer. Jacy sighed. <br />*~~~~~*<br />
  23. 23. Siksika had full access of the powers she lost when she was a teenager. It was a relief they had always been a part of her and when they were lost she felt it. She wanted to make sure that the loss wouldn’t happen again she continued the meditation to train her mind to put up a wall just in case someone tried what Suni did.<br />
  24. 24. But there was more on her mind than keeping her powers protected. She remembered a dream she had a while back; it had to do with her ancestors as her great-great grandmother spoke with her. She was talking about the legacy of the Lenmanans and about the first born daughter inheriting as the legacy continued through her. Well it wasn’t just first-born daughters other daughters would carry it on as well, they had to trace their family tree through many generations. The first born would just inherit the house and the family fortune.<br />
  25. 25. That first born daughter was Siksika herself. She was the one to inherit everything but how could she do it if she could barely keep a relationship let alone settle down with someone who would help her do this. She thought of her sisters Jacy-Nova and Elouise, Jacy was the most stable and grounded so she would be the one who could lead the family best. Ellie was showing some good leadership skills as well. But Ellie was still young; she was born so late in her parents’ years. <br />
  26. 26. Jacy, Jacy would be a great Heiress. Sika thought about what Lenmana had told her about all of this, one thing she said that made Sika feel a bit relieved, was the fact that she could pass it onto her sister if she didn’t feel she could do it. With everything that had happened in her life Siksika’s decision had already been made it just took her so long to finally accept the fact that she wouldn’t do well as heiress.<br />
  27. 27. The young woman stood up and brushed off as she weighed the pros and cons of passing the heirship onto Jacy. Siksika felt that this was a good Idea and it would be best for everyone. As she walked back to the Greek house she thought about when she would tell her sister about her decision, it would have to be before graduation. She would also have to tell her parents about it.<br />*~~~~~*<br />
  28. 28. Jacy fidgeted nervously on the way to see Owen as night fell. How was she going to do it? She had broken up with guys before but what made this one harder than the rest?<br />
  29. 29. Owen’s green eyes brightened as he saw Jacy there. He wrapped his arms around her in a tight squeeze then gave her a quick kiss on the lips. Jacy really liked how happy Owen was whenever he saw her which was making this a lot harder for her to do.<br />
  30. 30. “Owen” Jacy started with a strange tone in her voice that caught his attention.<br />“What is it Jay?” He said with a bit of worry in his voice.<br />
  31. 31. Jacy took a deep breath as she looked into Owen’s green eyes. Her mind bounced around as she slowly went through what was going on in her head.<br />
  32. 32. “I really like you. You are a nice guy and I really appreciate everything you have done for me.” Jacy-Nova started. The look on Owen’s face seemed to say it all.<br />“You are interested in someone else, aren’t you?”<br />“Owen I’m sorry”<br />
  33. 33. “I was wondering when this would happen” Owen said with a sad smile. “It always does” he faked a laugh. “So I guess this is good bye then?”<br />Jacy had nothing to say to his question as she watched Owen walk off. She watched him put his hands in his pockets.<br />
  34. 34. Jacy left the dorm with a heaviness in her heart but she tried to ignore it so it wouldn’t ruin a relationship with Isaiah.<br />
  35. 35. The next day after classes she went to visit Isaiah again. Getting the news that she was single again Isaiah asked her out on a date.<br />
  36. 36. Jacy wasn’t the only one getting some dates. Siksika was working her way up to reach her LTW of fifty first dates. She had become good friends with the gypsy Matchmaker even if she never paid much for a date.<br />
  37. 37.
  38. 38. It didn’t take too much longer of Siksika’s speed dating before she felt a sense of relaxation as she hit permaplat status.<br />
  39. 39. Siksika felt that everything was right in the world at this moment . She had reached her LTW of fifty first dates and could now relax. Well sort of…<br />
  40. 40. There were still final exams to study for Siksika was looking forward to graduation but at the same time she was kind of sad that this chapter of her life would soon be over and she would begin a new one. She wanted to find a job in the adventurer career, at least that was part of the young woman’s plan.<br />
  41. 41. She wasn’t going to be the only one graduating Koko and Kitchi-Keme would be graduating with her that year. Both of them were studying hard they wanted to graduate with honors well Koko wanted to more so than the rest. <br />
  42. 42. As per Greek house rules everyone else studied hard for their own exams. The rule was a good rule, to be a good influence on the rest of campus showing that there was more to Greek life than just massive parties.<br />
  43. 43. Koko’s studying led to more. She remembered her own Lifetime want and had just a few more skill points to go. The last skill she had to master was the charisma skill. Koko bought a mirror with some extra money and started working hard to get those skill points. Her hard work paid off when she found herself Permaplat.<br />
  44. 44. A few last edits on their final term papers and the three seniors were ready to get thrown into the adult world.<br />
  45. 45. Final exams came a lot quicker than they expected, time sure does fly. The final ended as the three of them stood silently in the 7pm darkness. They reflected on the four years they spent here at University. Siksika had spent longer than the other two.<br />“Siksika, are you in good spirits?” Koko broke the silence.<br />“I will be alright, I just can’t believe we are finished here” Sika looked back with a smile.<br />
  46. 46. Siksika wanted to throw a graduation party as she donned the hat and gown. The three of them graduated with Honors proving that even if you are in a Greek house it is possible to manage good grades. Friends and family were all invited.<br />
  47. 47.
  48. 48.
  49. 49.
  50. 50.
  51. 51. In the middle of the party Siksika caught her sister in the middle of socializing. She had to tell Jacy what had been on her mind for a while; this would be the right time.<br />“Jacy, can I talk to you about something in the kitchen”<br />
  52. 52. The kitchen of the Greek house was pretty vacant for the most part there was the casual party member grabbing some food but then leaving the room. <br />“Jacy, there has been something that has been on my mind for some time.” Siksika started as she took a look in her sister’s blue eyes. “I don’t think I will be able to take on the heirship.”<br />
  53. 53. Jacy-Nova looked at her sister curiously as she spoke. Her mind thought back to the dream she had when she started college. Her ancestors mentioned to her about the place of women in their society and how they are the ones to carry on the line and inherit the family house and fortune. <br />
  54. 54. “I was curious, did you want to be heiress instead” Siksika asked.<br />“Why me?” Jacy said with a raised eyebrow.<br />“To be honest Jacy, you would be better suited than me. You are stronger than me and would be able to keep the family together better than I ever could. So will you take on the heirship?”<br />
  55. 55. Jacy turned her back and thought for a moment; her an heiress? She didn’t even expect Siksika to pass it to her so this surprised her. Then again, her ancestor had told her that it could be a possibility for any female in the main line; maybe it wasn’t that much of a surprise after all. Siksika had been through a lot in her life, she would have made a great heiress in Jacy’s eyes but maybe it was better for both of them that she passed it onto her.<br />“Alright I will take it on” Jacy replied confidently.<br />
  56. 56. Could she do it? Could she become the head of the family? The thoughts passed through her head. She hadn’t thought about it until the dream, but this was her chance. She could be the head of the family! Jacy took a deep breath and just knew she could do it. <br />
  57. 57. In a different room another graduating student looked at the girl he had been seeing. Adoette had shown Kitchi so much he learned more about his culture than he ever could from his mother. He couldn’t see life without this girl who had changed him for the better.<br />
  58. 58. The young man got down on one knee in the dining room where the two had taken sanctuary away from the party. Adoette wasn’t really one for big parties although she would have a small party with just family.<br />“Adoette Rowena Hunicke will you marry me?”<br />
  59. 59. Adoette couldn’t contain her excitement! Kitchi was a really nice guy even if he didn’t completely start off as one. He had told Adoette everything as she taught him more about nature, art and their culture. Adoette gazed at the shiny new engagement ring and immediately glomped on Kitchi with a hug.<br />“Of course” She answered.<br />
  60. 60. Siksika had witnessed the proposal. She thought it was sweet and she decided to have a talk with Kitchi. Although she was sure he was safe after the vision she had.<br />“Kitchi-Keme” Siksika started her voice sounding very older sisterly. “We have had quite a few bumps in the road but in the end things worked out. But I need to hear it from you.”<br />
  61. 61. “Siksika, I don’t know how many times I can apologize for what I did when we started college. I am not my mother, I have never been her. Being raised by my father most of the time I have to admit I’m a bit more like he was.” Kitchi started. “When it comes to Adoette, she’s a really sweet girl and I would never hurt her. She has shown me a lot since we met and I owe her for it.” <br />Kitchi stopped what he was saying as Siksika looked at him and gave a smile. Satisfied, she nodded and returned back to the party.<br />
  62. 62. The party started to die down, family members congratulated family members and every one had a great time. There was socializing, food, dancing, bubble blowing, and kicky bag among other things. It was soon time for the graduates to call a taxi to pick them up and take them back home. <br />
  63. 63. The graduates revealed the uncharacteristic growing up clothing. Which would be changed as soon as they returned home to where new clothing awaited them.<br />
  64. 64. Right before Siksika got into the taxi cab to return back to Lenmana Island she felt the familiar tingling feeling. It was a surprise vision. Although Sika had the ability to control her visions she didn’t use it that often, for she kind of enjoyed the surprises every once in a while. This vision she felt strong, she saw a gentle hand tuck a blond baby girl in her crib. <br />
  65. 65. Whose baby this was, she wasn’t sure, if anything it was probably one of her relatives. She felt sure about it, although there was that strange tugging feeling in the back of her mind, which was telling Siksika otherwise. Siksika brushed the feeling as she got into the taxi.<br />
  66. 66. Siksika greeted her parents and younger sister as she was happy to be home. She knew it wasn’t going to be for long since the young woman had plans that she hadn’t told anyone about yet. She didn’t think it would be that important to them anyway, she wasn’t going to be heiress which meant she was basically free.<br />
  67. 67. There was her sister Elouise who kept following her around to get her attention. Siksika had no complaints for she wanted to get to know the younger sister born while she was in college. Ellie was more interested in who she was than anything. <br />
  68. 68. Sika decided that she should tell her mom the decision she made. She had always hinted a bit at the fact that she would be passing the heirship to Jacy. <br />“Hey mom, before anything else gets in the way, I want to tell you something.”<br />
  69. 69. Pocahontas motioned Siksika to sit down next to her. She had been pretty close to her mother, and noticed that she was like her in a few ways.<br />“What is it Siksika?” Pocahontas asked.<br />
  70. 70. Siksika took a deep breath before she continued.<br />“I decided to pass the heiresship to Jacy.” Siksika started. “It’s been on my mind for some time now and right before I graduated I asked Jacy about it and she agreed. Mom, I have never been the strongest person. I was also never good at relationships and I know I would need to get married and give life to the next generation. Two things I’m sure I will not be able to do. Jacy-Nova has been better suited for the heirship than I have ever been. I thought about it and figured it would be best for the family.”<br />
  71. 71. While Siksika explained her reasons she asked Jacy to take her place as Heiress, Pocahontas listened softly and calmly. It wasn’t that she didn’t expect this to happen because Pocahontas had also noticed the signs her eldest daughter didn’t think she could be heiress since the first time Siksika revealed that Jacy was going to be a girl. <br />
  72. 72. Pocahontas had thought that Siksika was a very strong young woman after what she had been through. She had accepted Siksika’s choice to pass it to Jacy. When her daughter finished Pocahontas pulled her into a hug and held her for a moment before releasing her.<br />“If you believe it will be best for the legacy then I accept your decision Siksika. ”<br />“Thanks mom”<br />*~~~~~*<br />
  73. 73. Happier times were ahead for the Azure’s and the Hunickes. The very first wedding of generation three was into action. Koko, who had been engaged to Zach since sophomore year of college, was getting ready for her wedding. Siksika wouldn’t miss it for the world. Koko had been her best friend since the two of them were children, even if Koko was a bit older than Siksika. <br />
  74. 74. The wedding was beautiful. Koko was definitely a princess on this special day. The plan was that Koko would be the one to inherit the Hunicke house and fortune being the firstborn daughter, Zach would move in with the family and become a Hunicke. In Lenmanian culture, the women were the ones to keep their last names and the men would keep the surname, also known as a clan-name, of their wife. It was much different than what most of the world did. It was also traditional for the new husband to move into his wife’s clan-house. That didn’t mean he had to completely shut all contact with his family Lenmanans were family oriented, of course the husband could see and talk his family whenever he wanted to.<br />
  75. 75. Koko’s wedding had many guests that showed up, every family member was there even the youngest two as well as several friends of Koko and Zach. <br />
  76. 76. And Zach showed to be a fork user when it came to the wedding cake. The wedding proved to be quite the roof raiser everyone had a great time! <br />
  77. 77. The party was winding down after much cake and wine consumption everyone was ready to settle into their everyday lives. Koko and Zach retired to their room while they went to “christen” the new bed.<br />*~~~~~*<br />
  78. 78. The days passed in the main and spare houses and Elouise was finally going to become a child. The family gathered around in the kitchen of the Azure house for her birthday.<br />
  79. 79. Katoyis had also become a child the day before and was excited to have his cousin join him so he had someone he could play with.<br />
  80. 80. Big sister Siksika brought Ellie to the cake. The candles were lit and Siksika bent over a bit so her sister could get a better look at the cake, but like her older siblings before she was more interested in the flame off of the candle.<br />
  81. 81. Ellie felt the sparkles come over her body as she grew into a child. She immediately went to change before anyone could take a good look at the outfit she grew up in. The child came back and showed off the new outfit to her mother who just came home from work.<br />
  82. 82. Elouise then went in search of her cousin to play.<br />“Kato! Wanna play rock, paper, scissors?”<br />“Sure!” Kato replied excitedly.<br />“And if I win I get your cake” Ellie challenged.<br />“That doesn’t seem fair.”<br />“But it’s my birthday!”<br />
  83. 83. Koko was at the party and about to have the first baby of Generation 4. There were many congratulations for her Zach and the new baby. This would be Aiyana’s first great grandchild.<br />
  84. 84. Koko gave a smile to Siksika and a nod as if the two of them were communicating telepathically . They seemed to know something that everyone else didn’t. Well Siksika may have already predicted Koko’s baby and the two of them decided to let everyone else be surprised. The reason for this was Siksika also told Koko something else.<br />*~~~~~*<br />
  85. 85. While other family members were busy with their own lives, Crowfoot, now back at University decided to try to get himself fit. He hogged the exercise bike gaining body points. He wasn’t sure how he would ever get another girlfriend but hey at least the geek could try. He hadn’t dated much since Brigitte; spending more time with the telescope.<br />
  86. 86. Rozene and Sinopa were working on their own lives now that they as well as Crowfoot were all seniors. Rozene had spent a lot of time working on new recipes to try maybe she could open up her own restaurant someday. Sinopa worked on a variety of things.<br />
  87. 87. Jacy-Nova had been acknowledging the fact that she was now going to be the heiress to the Azure family. It was still something to get used to she had always expected Siksika to keep the heirship and now things had changed.<br />
  88. 88. Adoette tried to adjust to the fact that Kitchi had already graduated so she tried to take her mind off of it by distracting herself with School as well as other things; other things meaning spending hours on end at the bubbleblower.<br />
  89. 89. The members of Luyu Angeni weren’t the only ones enjoying college. It was also time for Ohanko and Dyami to become college students. The two boys were excited to be here and enjoy themselves one pleasure sim and one popularity sim things could get pretty crazy.<br />
  90. 90. The two of them started making friends, Dyami was always looking around, most of the ladies seemed to be attracted to him.<br />
  91. 91. Ohanko on the other hand tended to jump right into dating. Although he was trying to keep his relationships subtle from the others, as he had back in high school. Usually their moments were in a smaller room.<br />
  92. 92. They also enjoyed themselves the dorm they had made their home for the next two semesters had an arcade area in the main room.<br />
  93. 93. And at some point there was some studying going on, which was reminded to them by their older relatives, mostly Koko who called to check on her family members from time to time.<br />
  94. 94. Jacy had been out with Isaiah, he had taken her out on his motorcycle around the campus and even downtown. She loved the thrill of being on a motorcycle. Isaiah didn’t worry about Jacy’s safety as much as Owen did. Isaiah was a speed demon. She enjoyed the adrenaline rush whenever she was with him.<br />The phone rang inside the Greek house as Jacy ran inside and over to the wall to answer it. She heard her mom talking really quickly on the phone. Jacy couldn’t make lout what she was trying to tell her the words didn’t make any sense. <br />
  95. 95. “Mom calm down what’s going on?” Jacy finally was able to get the words out of her mouth. <br />Jacy could feel her body warming up as it usually did when she was either worried or about to lose her temper. It was the fire that ran through her body she had to keep herself from releasing the flames. <br />
  96. 96. “Jacy Nova, Siksika is gone!”<br />
  97. 97. That was it! Her sister her older sister was missing. Jacy was really curious to what could have happened to Siksika? Jacy-Nova knew about Siksika’s powers returning to her which made her happy for her sister, but did this disappearance have anything to do with the reason Siksika passed the heirship to Jacy? Did Sika see something coming? Jacy was silent as she stared at the phone.<br />
  98. 98. I know I am so evil right? I hope you enjoyed this chapter, as I did writing it. I know it’s a bit shorter than my previous chapters but that’s because of how I decided to set it up. I also noticed what music can do to your muse LOL.<br />
  99. 99. What happened to Siksika?<br />Now that we have had our first marriage, how will generation 4 turn out?<br />What is next to happen to the Azures and Hunickes?<br />Tune in next time for another exciting chapter of Forever Flowing: The Azure legacy!<br />
  100. 100. I would like to thank all of my readers and commentators for following the Azures and Hunickes as I follow them. I really love writing this! I would also like to thank everyone who had helped me as well as my Beta and all the sites I borrow CC from.<br />
