Ambrose had no idea Julian wassafe, assuming he was trappedin his room unconscious fromthe smoke. So she and Alfredstayed inside trying to find himand tackle the flames.
The flats were doing far better intheir fire fighting attempts. Simonhad rushed upstairs to help hiselderly neighbours when hisdownstairs flat had caught fire, onlyto find them rushing in the oppositedirection.They expertly extinguished theflames in his home, saving the entirebuilding.
But for others onDeasil Street, allattempts to escapethe blaze failed.Aimee woke too lateto get out, her escaperoute blocked by awall of fire.Ambrose hadcollapsed from thesmoke looking forJulian, and thoughAlfred tried in vain tosave her, succumbedhimself.
Unable to contain the maelstrom of fire intown, Marley had rushed home to try andsave his wife, whom he knew had takensleeping pills.Seeing he had arrived to late to save her, hewalked into the flames to die alongside her.His final thoughts were of her, and of hisdaughter. He hoped she would forgive him.
One by one, unlucky sims from Deasil Street and homes all over Appaloosa lost theirlives to the fire.Because of the dry grasses of the plain Appaloosa was built on, this fire was worsethan any of the other protests. Even the arsonists, watching on from the hills werehorrified by the extent of the devastation.
Those who had escaped to the edges ofthe town prepared to return, scared at thethought of what they might find. Ariettehad never joined her family where theyhad agreed to meet, and Annette wasfrightened. The smoke made it as dark as night amongst the burnt out ruins. Bernice held the terrified Sonja tight in their little oasis. The landscaped park had been saved by the amount of water in it, and the fire hadn’t got to them
One by one, the residents of Deasil Street who had escapedreturned to find their loved ones dead or dying.
For days to come allthat could be seen ofAppaloosa for milesaround was a columnof thick black smoke.
RIP Ambrose Merrihall Ambrose was a talented musician whose sunny, even naïve take in life meant she never got very far in her career. Orphaned early in life, she relied first on her agent, then friend Bernice to help her find a place to live and gigs to play. Mother of Julian via a strained relationship with her boss Frank, she was just on the cusp of finding love with neighbour Alfred.RIP AlfredHennrick Moving to Deasil Street was supposed to make living alone and friendless even easier for computer genius Alfred. But the determination of Warren Bailey to befriend him opened him up to other possibilities… including falling in love with joyful neighbour Ambrose. He died trying to save her.
RIP Ariette Vickers, Ariette had struggled with her heritage as sole heir of the Vickers line her entire life. Her overbearing father kept happiness at bay for decades, even forcing her to give up her daughter for proprieties sake. The building of Deasil Street was the catalyst for her growth into the woman she’d always wanted to be – happy and free of burden and duty. Mother of Annette, the two of them had reconciled their past and Ariette had just started her first romance since giving up Annette’s father.RIP Aimee and Marley WilliamsAimee and Marley had moved to DeasilStreet to start again – both wanting tochange careers and rekindle the love intheir marriage. They were finally successfulin all their dreams and happy when theydied. Had a daughter, Malika.
