The DeLightful Legacy- Chapter 6
Why, hello there! Welcome back to the DeLightful Legacy. Chapter Six! This, my friends, is a college chapter…and also a plot chapter. Woo! The heir is pretty clear, and will be revealed shortly. In the meantime, let’s have a recap! So last chapter (which was divided into two parts) We all figured out that Alec was feeling jealous about the heirship being handed to Aro instead of him. In his eyes, Aro gets everything. So Alec, evil mastermind that he is, went and became a vampire so he could kill people easily, and also married a vampire—Maura. They had two evil daughters Jane and Heidi, and now Jane and Heidi are trying to help eliminate the B kids, while Alec and Maura stay behind to kill Aro, Tracy, and Alice, thus claiming the legacy for themselves. Eric, Bella’s boyfriend, is on Alec’s side for the time being…Alec promised him Heidi for a wife. But Eric actually did fall in love with Bella. Will he change his mind? On with the show! (And that above is the Greek House! ‘Tis ugly, no?)
WE INTERRUPT THIS LEGACY FOR A BRIEF EXPLANATION OF LATENESS BY DAISY the CREATOR….DAISY?: Thanks, deep-voiced narrator person who narrates MY life. Yes, so obviously this chapter is out really late. And I shall explain myself. First off: It’s summer (well, it’s almost over) and as I was writing this, I became busy with counseling at camps, hanging out with my friends, and parties galore. So I hadn’t had enough time for simming. Then, once I finally started playing, I got extreme writers block randomly out of nowhere. So I started doubting the legacy…and I ALMOST quit it. (Cumulative gasp by everyone reading!) Then, finally when inspiration hit, I started playing again, and it was going fine, but then my game started messing up. My graphics card started failing on me. So! I finally got a new one (with MY money, that’s how much I care about my sims…because I’m pretty cheap.) and my game is running better than ever. Sorry for the long wait and I hope this is a good one. YOU BETTER ENJOY IT…..please. :D Now, on with the storehhh!
“Gosh, that was such a hassle getting here, Billy. Why the heck did the police ask us if we were vampires? Do I look like a vampire to you!? We could have gotten here a lot sooner if those police men would’ve stopped questioning me like that…” “I’m just glad we are here. But did you take a look at Downtown? It’s practically vacant…” “Well…it is daytime. Nobody goes to a nightclub in the daytime.” “True.” “Which is another thing! If we were vampires, why would we be out in the sunlight…idiots.” “You can say that again…”
*That’s Eric, just so everyone knows… “I’m so glad you’re moving in, Eric.”(see, I told you it was Eric!) “ I’m glad you asked me. Are you sure, though? This place only has three bedrooms.” Billy (far away): “He can sleep on the couch!” “Eric, you can sleep in my room. I have a double bed…” “Hmm…I like sharing if it’s with you.” Billy: “ I still say he should sleep on the couch…”
“What’s you’re deal, Billy? What’s so bad about Eric moving in?” “I just don’t like him…he sends off a bad vibe.” “Oh, please. Alec sends off a bad vibe.” “Bella, you’ve met him once…I don’t see how you can pick up a bad vibe from him.” “And you barely know Eric…so I don’t see how you can pick one up from him…” “Bella, just…be careful. Please.” “Sure…”
“Bells, I’m going to campus real quick…no funny business, Eric. I may be artistic, but I know how to throw a punch…” “I believe you , Blue.” Bella: “Blue, you don’t have to act like you’re Dad.” “I’m not acting like Dad. I’m acting like an older brother. I’m going to be home really quick, so..keep playing red hands.” “Oh, my goodness…”
Dead body? “What? No…It’s our Greek house letter.” Oh…so, umm…going girlfriend hunting anytime soon? “I’ll see. I’m trying to keep things under control right now. Billy hates Eric, and I’m tired of Bella, really.” You should trust Bella. “I should trust myself. Bella always looks for the worst in everything. She’s just like Dad. If Alec is intent on our demise…well, we’re just going to have to fight.” Alright…
Yes, that’s a Greek House Letter! WOOO! We’re working on handshakes now. :D
“I gotta talk to Alec soon…this is ridiculous. I can’t hurt this girl…she, gosh…she’s very important to me. If I hurt her or her family, I doubt I could live with myself. I’m going to have to back out of this soon. Even if it means Alec killing me. At least I’ll die knowing that I never did anything wrong to Bella—well, at least I tried to make it right.” You thought I was going to make HIM evil? Pshh…please, he’s too hot for that!
“Bella! You have to run!” Alice called, running away into the dark, her pale skin glowing in the darkness. “Why?” Bella asked. She couldn’t see Alice anymore. She walked into the bright room ahead of her. “Bella, so glad you could show,” said a familiar voice…but a different one from past dreams. “I was starting to get worried.” Fangs protruded from the mouth of the person she thought she knew. Eric. “No…” Bella whispered. “Don’t worry. It’ll be quick.” He lunged for her throat. And around her, the souls of people she loved undulated in the air. She didn’t feel pain…just the whisper-touch of her family. Blue. Aro. Billy. Tracy. Alice.
Really? “Yep.” At three in the morning? “Gotta eat.” You’re a cutie, Billy! ^__^
So he fell in love with her all over again, and she fell in love with him for the first time. Yes, she is a DeLightful.
“SimCity Phone Company, my name is June, how may I be of assistance?” “Ah, yeah…are the phone lines down in Riverblossom?” “No, sir. All the phone lines are working properly. Are you’re calls not going through, sir?” “Yeah, I tried calling my parents, and it’d be just dead air. No annoying tone or anything.” “That’s odd. The only thing that would be able to do that would be a device that blocked out service. And even then, you would get a tone.” “I don’t know. Never mind, June. It’s not that important. I can email.” “Alright. Have a nice day.” “You too.”
“Bella, I know we just got back from class, and this is really sudden, but I need for you to marry me. I can’t imagine life without you. Please, do me the honor of being my wife.” “That’s…wow. Um…” “Y-you don’t want to?” “Um…I mean…I do! No, really—” “Bella, if you’re not sure…” “I am. I just…it’s really early, don’t you think?” “Well, yeah, but does timing really matter?” “I guess not.” Yes it does.
“So that was a yes, Bella?” “Yes!” “Really?!” “Yes!” They look like two stupid teenagers in love. Oh brother…
“Bella, there’s something I want to tell you.” “What is it?” [Oh, I don’t know. Maybe he wants to say that he’s working for your sadistic vampire uncle just so he can have money because they’re pretty rich?] “I…I’m kind of…” “What?” “Never mind. I was just going to say something really cheesy. ‘I love you’ works better than what I was going to say.” “I love you, too.”
“So, you proposed to my sister.” “Yeah.” “Humph.” “Is that a problem?” “I don’t know what your motives are, man…but if you hurt my sister, you’ll be a dead man walking.” “Not if I can get rid of one other dead man walking.” “Excuse me?” “Billy…we need to talk.” Note: Anybody notice the red truck? Yep, just like Bella’s in Twilight. Gotta have the red truck!
“What do you need to tell me, Eric?” “I…I’m not as good as you think I am.” “Well, I don’t like you anyway…so, I don’t think you’re good. What is it?” “Bill, you have to promise to not blab this to Bella or Blue, okay?” “Scout’s honor…”
“Okay…I’m a spy for your uncle—Alec.” Awkward…
“Now, don’t freak out. I don’t want to be a part of it anymore. He promised me money and becoming the spouse of one of his daughters—” “Whoa! He has daughters?” “They’re vampires. Alec’s a vampire now. He married some other vampire that killed my mother. When I denied him before, his wife killed my mother to show that if I didn’t follow his directions…he’d…k-kill me too. Billy, you have to help me stop him. You and Blue. I don’t want Bella a part of this…she—well, if something happened to her, I’d probably kill myself. Also we need to hurry and get a hold of your parents and your aunt Alice. They’re in danger because Alec used magic to knock out communication through phone and internet at your house, those roses I gave Bella. We need to hurry and tell Blue.”
How’s the lady hunt going? “Forget that right now, Daisy! Billy told me about Eric. I guess I believe Bella now. She knew something was wrong and I didn’t want to see it. I’m such an idiot! I promised myself I would protect her and Billy a long time ago, and now my whole family is in danger…” Blue, it’s not up to you to save the whole family. “Well, if I’m going to be taking charge of a family of my own, don’t you think I should be able to protect the ones that I have now? I have to do this, Daisy. I have to stop Alec myself. Dad’s too old…Mom is too precious to me. Bella has tunnel-vision so she doesn’t focus on things around her…and Billy’s too young. It’s my responsibility.” Oh, yeah…Blue’s heir :P (which I’m happy about! Though I’m getting this idea that you all are sexist voters. Only males so far, haha)
“Hello, I’m Sophie. I hit on your dad a lot back when he was in College.” “Billy…I’m going to pretend that isn’t creepy.” “Mhm!” “Soooo…..wanna makeover?” “Oh, yes please!” I don’t like her face, but they have bolts, so I had to make her a bit more attractive.
Don’t be afraid gurl! Work that up-do! Own that ponytail! :D Random Fact: Sophie has babies in odd positions patterned on her dress. I find that EXTREMELY creepy. Random Fact 2: I miss Troy DeLightful. And he’s only a Sim….I probably miss him so much because I barely let my sims die. Or get to elder stage. So I’m kind of depressed. And because Billy looks just like Troy. D:
Looking for the future Mrs. DeLightful, Blue? “No, I’m sending an e-mail to Mom and Dad, because their phone line isn’t working. “ Dear Mom and Dad, We’ve been trying to call…Billy and I need to tell you something about Uncle Alec. I guess I should say it now. Eric told us he was the one that knocked out your power. Now, please, don’t be angry with him. He’s not working for Alec anymore…something to do with him loving Bella and all that romantic stuff. That doesn’t mean Alec can’t harm you. Eric doesn’t know exactly where Alec is, but he definitely is in Riverblossom. Be careful! “Alright…send…” MESSAGE FAILED TO SEND. “Really!? Ugh!”
Now are you going to find your future woman? “Fine! I was actually going to do some research on killing vampires—” You just put them in the sun. Then, BAM! Ashes, ashes, we all fall down. “Somehow I feel that killing Alec will be harder than that.” Of course you do…gahh, you guys are sucking all the creativity out of me. It will be a while before we have another villain!
“Hey, are you on your way home, yet, Blue?” “Yeah, I’ll get your precious truck back—” “Never mind the truck, Blue! Just hurry up and get home. Can’t keep people waiting all day.” “People? Are we having a party? Because I can get some—” “JUST COME HOME!” “Jeeze, okay…”
I love cameraman mode. Wow, that sounded creepy. Moving on…
“Michelle! Glad you could come!” “Aren’t we studying for our Drama Exam?” “Uh…later on, yeah. But I have someone you should meet. Oh, he just pulled up now!” “He?” “Mhm!”
Meanwhile…in the Lair of the Misfits… “Ahem, Volturi Castle!” Whatever, Rapunzel from the dead. “It’s MAURA! Oh, Jane, sorry to yell in your ear, sweetie. How’s everything in college? …What?......Eric flaked out on us? That BRAT! Kill a kid’s mother and you’d think he’d be loyal to you…What’s that, Jane? Greek house, huh? That means more people for us to kill…well, if it has to end that way…so be it.”
Why are you always in your pajamas!? “Because I’m a pleasure sim and it brings me happiness in this time of stress! Now, I believe it is time for me to say aloud all my plans to defeat the DeLightful—” Outside: “Come on Susie! You afraid of a haunted house!?” “Is that the giggling of children I hear?” I believe so…Wait a second…where are you--
“Children! How nice of you to enter the property of the Volturi Castle!” “It—it’s a v-v-Vam—” “Oh, now, didn’t your mother teach you NOT TO STUTTER!? Vampire, I believe, is the word you’re so incapable of saying.” The screams of innocent children commenced….
“How many—ugh!—times am I going to—oof!—have to kill these stupid townie children that walk by my castle?” Maybe if you didn’t have your castle in Riverblossom Hills….it’s kind of conspicuous. “Well, it’s too late to build a new one. I worked my whole adult life on this!” You’re not even that old… “Stop ruining my dramatic speeches, Daisy!” Ahh, that’s a bit gruesome, even for me, and I hate kids….I’m frightened of my own creative powaaahh!
“Soon this town will be ours, Maura. And I love you, even though you have a thick Vampire accent that is highly annoying sometimes…like when you say what…you say ‘vut’…but regardless, I do love you.” “And I love you, even though you are like a baby to me and this would be cradle robbing if we were our actual ages. And I don’t necessarily like your hair…it’s a little boyish. And the fact that you have absolutely no facial hair is an extreme put off…plus, when I bit you, your blood tasted like cotton candy—” “That’s enough my dear. Tonight we are no longer the other DeLightfuls. We are the Dreadfuls!” Maura and Alec Dreadful. That’s lame….
Yay, sunshine! “Bella, I really don’t have time for some romance—” “Well then you are going to have to make time, Blue! Just go over there and say hi!” “Bella, really…there are things going on—” “Oh, the Alec and Eric thing?” “You know!?” “Eric tells me everything idiot! Do you not see this ring on my finger? Now get over there and say hi!” “Ugh…”
“Hi, I’m Blue DeLightful.” “I’m Mi—” Bella: “Ahem!” Blue: “What?” Bella: *whispers*” You’re Blue DeLightful and it’s….AHEM!!” Blue: *sigh* I’m Blue DeLightful and it sure is DeLightful to meet you…” “Heh…right. I’m Michelle Larson. Daughter of Ricky Larson the third.” “Really?” “No, just kidding. But isn’t he the best artist in Sim City!?” Well, they love each other.
Nice going, Bella. Looks like you have some of Alice’s matchmaker genes in you! “I don’t see how I could get Alice’s genes…but Blue’s way too serious all the time. And Michelle is in my Drama class and she simply loves art and writing and acting, all the things Blue likes…so I thought, hey, why not match them up?” He looks nervous… “The only girls he’s talked to were only after Billy because he’s all sensitive and stuff.” Wait, when did this happen!? “When you skipped through our teenage days because you’re trying to get something done…?” Oh..right *mutters* I’m trying to get this plot done…taking me forever!
That is all the guys do. Eat, eat some more, and eat again. Bella works way harder than all of you! And you guys ate all the spaghetti. That she made. For you. Bunch of pigs! Blue: “The llama mascot had a plate, as well.” Grrrrr.
Why are you up so early? It’s five AM. “I finished my term paper, and then I got hooked on these Vampire websites. Some Vampires have abilities to trick people into coming to their homes, like throwing extravagant balls or…why are you laughing?” Hahaha! You said…you said BALLS! “*sigh* Anyway…Some of the victims do not know they’re being tricked until it’s too late. Wow…well, maybe knowledge of their ability to trick people will make me less susceptible to their power…” And then you go for the kill! “Hopefully we can be civil and not kill anyone. I’m going to be so tired…I forgot I have a date with Michelle this afternoon…” WHAT!?
I’m tired of these little B children not telling me vital things….I didn’t even know Blue asked Michelle out… “Gosh, it’s pretty hot in Bluewater Village. It’s summer in Autumn here! We should have gone swimming.” “Well, we’re close by the river, so maybe it’ll be cool. I really like this restaurant. Le Magnifique…my, uh…my Dad actually recommended that should I ever take a girl on a date, this is the spot.” “I heard the art pieces in here were quite beautiful.” “Yeah, I think they have a Larson painting in here, in fact.” So cute :D Little artist nerds.
“So you’re positive that Ricky Larson the third isn’t related to you at all?” “Positive! I should know. As much as I’ve looked through my family history, he’s not in there. Wouldn’t it be amazing, though?” “Absolutely…but then you’d get all this unwanted attention. Artistic guys throwing themselves at you…as if they’d need any more reason.” “What do you mean?” “You’re beautiful. You’re like a walking painting of an angel.” “Blue, that’s very kind! Oh, I love this song, let’s dance!”
“Blue, can you not dance? Haha!” “Dancing is not my talent, Michelle. Painting is.” “Well then I guess I’ll have to teach you how to dance in my spare time…” “Of course, I might have to teach you a few things as well.” “Oh, and what would those things be?” “Well, here’s one.”
“How to expect when a guy is going to kiss you for the first time.” Are you all done vomiting/aww-ing at this? :D Move on, please!
THE NEXT DAY!!! “Daisy, stop yelling, I need to talk to Billy! Ahem…BILLY YOU WON’T BELIEVE MY DATE!!!” Look who’s yelling, now. “What happened?” “Billy, stop interrupting! Okay, so here’s what happened. I took her down to Le Magnifique, that restaurant Mom and Dad love so much, and so we talked about our favorite painter, and then she wanted to dance, but I can’t dance, you know that, and then we had this weird banter on teaching each other things, and I did the SMOOTHEST thing EVER! I kissed her when she least expected it! Gosh, Michelle is AMAZING! She’s so full of life and hyper but also the coolest person ever, besides Volterra.” Volterra is a cat…
“That’s awesome, man. Michelle seems like a nice girl!” “Seems? No she IS!” “Right. That’s what I meant.” “Well, I’m going to go up on the roof to play some guitar.” “No. Don’t do that….” “Why not?” “Bella and Eric are in the hot tub.” “Oh…maybe I’ll just invite Michelle over.” “Good call.”
Stop. Romantic. Overload. Hey, why is your hand right there, Eric!?
Bella couldn’t wait until she was married. Haha! Twilight joke.
Don’t worry, Billy, we’ll get you a date with Sophie eventually. (The girl with the dead babies on her dress!) But I kind of want you to be with someone else… Y’all shall see what I am talking about later. Now it’s time to get serious…
“My purpose in killing her? Simple…”
“There were two Janes in the house. It was confusing…and I was thirsty.”
Heidi “Do I regret killing stupid Jane Stacks? No…sure, she was Aunt Alice’s best friend or whatever, but she was in the way, I was thirsty, and I’m on a mission.”
“Those damn DeLightfuls. Bella and Billy and Blue. I hate them all. Especially Aro. He took the Legacy from our father. He took what was rightfully ours. The fame, the fortune, the power that all comes with being in a Legacy. Now look where we are. In a rusty old tower, spying on our cousins’ beautiful Greek House. I can’t stand it any longer. I wish father would have just okayed us killing them. All of this would be over! But no, he has to take the dramatic version of everything!” At least he doesn’t talk to himself…
“Heidi, I was on the third floor…there are college students coming around here. Apparently they like to come here at night and have wild drunken parties.” “A little alcohol in some blood never stopped me from having a taste.” “Heidi…when is the Masquerade going to happen?” “Soon. Mother is having a hard time getting people to come. When she tells us it’s prepared, we do our part.” “Yes…hypnotize everyone into coming to the ball except Blue. Should we take the blonde he’s hanging around with lately?” “No. She’s not on the list. We can’t invite people to an exclusive party if they’re not on the list…”
“Someone’s coming! I can smell them! Heidi, what if they heard us?” I’m sure all of SSU heard you cackling up here.
“That brings the count to two tonight. I’m trying to slim down…only one person a day.” “I haven’t had anyone today, Heidi. Let me.”
Girl: “You two are going to kill the DeLightfuls!? You…you’re vampires!” Jane: “Obviously.” Heidi: “Another thing that’s obvious is your parents never taught you to not eavesdrop.” “I-I didn’t mean to hear….Look, I’m a little drunk, I’m not going to lie. So maybe when I wake up tomorrow, I’ll forget—” Jane: “Wake up? Hmm. I hope you believe in an afterlife.”
“Please! No! I swear, I won’t tell!” Heidi: “And we’ll make sure you keep that promise. Jane, I’m full. You can have her…” Jane: “I guess you’re driving tonight, Heidi. You know I follow the rules. No drinking and driving.” “Please! I’ll do whatever you want! Turn me into a vampire! Just don’t kill me!” Jane: “This may hurt just a little…*” “NO!” “Pain.” *My favorite line from Jane in New Moon!!! Remember, Jane can cause pain just by looking at the person.
A few days later at the…hey, Bella! Where the heck have you been? You have class in an hour. “Um…Nowhere. Just took a spin.” No you didn’t. You’re a horrible liar, Bella. “Okay, but promise not to tell Blue and Michelle. I don’t want them to feel bad.” What?
“Billy, Eric, and I have all been invited to some party by the Dean of Admissions at SSU. Something about us making the Dean’s list and only a select few make it. And since it’s fall, he’s making the party kind of like a costume party. Like a Masquerade.” Bella, I don’t think— “And I went to go get our costumes and masks. Just promise you won’t tell Blue!” Bell, I don’t really think you should go to that party. Haven’t you been watching the news? The vampire attacks are increasing. “The party is in the daytime. The sun, remember? Relax and don’t tell Blue or Michelle.” You have no sense of self-preservation…
Later on that night! Everyone is awake because when Bella came back from class, I forgot that she hadn’t eaten anything for a while, so she was about to die of starvation. And because Young Adults walk so slow, she wouldn’t have made it to the kitchen. So I maxed motives, forgetting that it does that for the whole household. So it’s past midnight and everyone’s awake. Who are the vampires now? “These guys are.” Huh? “Blue and I have been talking a lot about the vampire attacks lately. And we know who they’re from, obviously, but there’s been some attacks right here at SSU.” Look at you getting all serious! You should be a detective!
Michelle: “Somehow, I have the feeling that detectives don’t have two hyper college students cheering a fight song when they’re trying to solve a mystery.” Well, the Llama is high 24/7. And Billy’s just naturally spirited. :D
“Hey, Llama! That’s totally cheating! You can’t throw a banana peel at me when I’m driving! We specifically said no bananas before we started playing!” “Well, Eric, you shouldn’t have chosen Peach to be your driver. I mean really? She the weakest player in this game.” “Weakest!? Toad is the weakest!” “Toad is awesome! He has a mushroom cap for a hat!” Michelle: “GUYS, IT’S JUST MARIO KART!!” This was based on an actual event in my life between my two best guy friends. Losers…
“Hey, Billy, new rules to keep us safe from Vampires.” “Yeah? Wait, why are we in the bathroom?” “Forget that! Okay, since all of us seem to have night classes except for me and Michelle, I think that we should just hurry home as soon as class is over. That means no lingering to talk to classmates, no chats with the professors, nothing. We are all in the house at least by nine, and Vampires usually like Midnight the best…”
“Okay, so if you are out of the house even by just one minute past nine, I will be forced to walk with everyone when they go to class. And no late night pizza runs!” “One minute? Can we make it five minutes?” “Billy, it takes five minutes for a vampire to drain your body of blood. One minute. That’s final.” “Did Dad die or something? Because you’re starting to act just like him…” “I’m the oldest, I have a say in what happens in this house.”
Hey, sorry for almost starving you to death. You should have automatically ate something, though. “I tried to make myself pork chops but you stopped me!” I didn’t realize your cooking skill was at eight…um…plus I wanted to see your new dress… “Ugh.” So, how’s the whole masquerade thing going? Did you tell Billy?” “Yeah, I told Billy. He’s excited about it.” Cool. …awkward silence…
…BELLA PLEASE DON’T GO TO THAT PARTY!!! “What!?” Bella if you go, something bad is going to happen! “The only way I’m not going to go is if I die.” Bella, you’ll die if you do go! “Daisy, please. You’re being really dramatic for no reason. Chill out!” Don’t go, please! “Whatever, Daisy.” UGH!!
“A masquerade, huh? That sounds fun, I guess.” “It should be! I just feel bad that Blue and Michelle weren’t invited. The letter from the Dean said that our Greek House was invited but he made a point of saying that Blue and Michelle couldn’t come. It was weird how much it was emphasized in the letter…”
“Why do you think they can’t come, Bells?” “I don’t know…It’d be fun to have this as a thing all of us could do, but…I’ll just have to follow the rules on this.” “So, me, you , and Billy. Interesting group. Considering Billy doesn’t really like me.” “I think he trusts you now that you told him the truth and you’re on our side now. Do you think Alec could be behind this?” OHMYGOD MAYBE!??!? “Nah, he’s the kind of guy that comes to the victim. He’s probably given up by now. His conspicuous killings are ruining him.” *facepalm* I give up. I’m done. You all do whatever you like! I’m taking pictures and staying silent. Idiots…
“Friday night is going to be awesome. I’ve always wanted to go to a Masquerade party.” %^&~! *#$@~#$3#$%%^&43!!!!!
They fell in love watching Some Hospital Soap Opera (actual title). Cute little Blondies :D
It was snowing and they were playing Jazz music. Yes, this picture has no point at all. I LIKED IT, OKAY!?
I decided the DeLightful Greek House should get a mascot. So this little annoying bird is named Phoenix. In Twilight, Bella moves from Phoenix, Arizona to Forks, Washington. So I thought that since a phoenix is a bird, and we (they, actually) wanted a bird…we should name it Phoenix. But nothing will ever replace Volterra because he will never die. Not if I can help it.
Bella, remember the rules Blue issued out. Straight back to the house after your exam. “Where else would I go?” I don’t know. But you’re kind of attracted to dangerous things. So please, just don’t make any stops on the way back, okay? There are vampires on Campus. “The police are just speculating that.” Trust me. I know there are a couple running around here. “Okay, Daisy. Whatever you say. Haha…” Stop laughing, this is your life we’re talking about!
The next day… “Cooper, have you seen Bella at all today?” “No, Master Blue, I haven’t. Isn’t she at class?” “No…she has a class in three hours…I didn’t see her this morning either.” “Well, she might want to hurry home. The weather report suggested a blizzard today.” “Oh, then she’ll definitely hurry home. She hates snow.” Oh dear…
“Billy, I can’t wait for this party! Finally our first actual College Party.” “Yeah! I heard the Tri-Var girls are going as well!” “Alright, man! Maybe you can get with one of them!” “I don’t know. Anyway, Bells has been talking about it nonstop. Speaking of her…where is she?” “She should be at class right now, shouldn’t she?” “I think so.” Michelle: “Party…?”
“Is Bella on her way home, Eric?” “I don’t know. The main roads are in bad shape…and I’m sure nobody is shoveling sidewalks yet.” “Blue’s going to be pissed because she’s out by herself still.” “Well, it’s daytime…so the vampires can’t come out anyway.” “Not unless they’re using humans to kidnap people.” “Thanks for putting that in my head, Billy.” “Sorry…just thinking too hard, is all. I hate vampires…disgusting things.”
The Night of the Masquerade “Party” “Michelle…where is everyone?” “I don’t know, I just got in…” “I checked everyone’s rooms…they’re not in there. And no one’s on the roof.”
“Oh, Blue, there’s a note sitting here.” “What does it say?” “It’s from Bella. It says ‘I’m sorry we didn’t tell you earlier. We didn’t want you both to feel bad. We got invited to a party by the Dean. Something about outstanding role models here at SSU for our Greek house being the most popular Greek house on campus…anyway! I wrote down the address just in case anything happens. And here’s the number you can call to reach us. We should be back by midnight. Don’t worry!’” “Bella, you idiot…” “Blue, this address is in Riverblossom. The road blocks are still up, aren’t they?”
(ignore the fact that they are suddenly close together. :D) “Blue, there’s no way we can get to them. What if that’s your uncle’s house?” “There has to be a way. You have to go Downtown to get to Riverblossom from SSU…so if we just make a complete circle…yes!” “What?”
“I’ll explain in the car. Do you still have that Halloween costume that you never used because—” “Yes…but why do we need..?” “Because. We’re going to need the proper attire if we’re going to a Masquerade, right?” (also ignore the fact that the painting was blank a few slides ago and now it’s almost finished…I had to take pictures on two different sim nights, okay!?)
Blue, you are so cool right now. “Er…thanks? That’s beside the point. We need to hurry and get on the road so I can save my siblings and my future brother-in-law.” God, you are so badass right now. “Once again, Daisy. Thanks. But let’s focus on the lives of the innocent, shall we?” Right. Sorry.
“I’m surprised I can still fit into this dress. Since all we’ve been eating lately is pizza…” “You look gorgeous.” “You didn’t have to say that angrily…” “I’m sorry, this is just a tense situation right now, and Bella’s truck sucks in the speed department….Let’s hope Alec is the kind that likes to draw things out unnecessarily.” “Like giving an unusually long speech that divulges his whole plan before he kills his victim?” “Yep.” “Oh. Yeah, that would give us a lot of time…”
“So, exactly how are we getting into Riverblossom without the police stopping us?” “Okay, remember how on our first date we went to Bluewater Village, and it wasn’t closed off?” “Yes…” “Well, that’s how I think the vampires got through to SSU. Many people don’t know, but there’s a road in the hills of Bluewater Village that isn’t marked on maps…it’s kind of a hiking trail that was closed to the public. If I’m right, that trail leads into this road in the middle of nowhere that eventually get’s you to Riverblossom.” “How’d you figure this all out?” “My Dad’s a knowledge sim, so am I…must have increased the logical side of my brain.”
Half an hour later! “Are we almost in Bluewater?” “Yeah, we just need to go over that hill and we’ll be on the trail.” “….Blue?” “Yes, Michelle?” “I’m scared.” “Don’t be.” “But they’re vampires—”
“I won’t let them hurt you. I won’t let them get near you, okay?” “How are we going to fight them, Blue? We’re weak little humans.” “But we’re smart. They’re too bloodthirsty and Power-hungry to think in the moment. They’re only thinking of what they want. Blood and Power. And they’re limited, as well. If we can stop them long enough until the sun comes up, then we can have an advantage. Look, it’s almost midnight. Hey, give me your cell phone. I’m going to call this number. And a friend of mine that might help us out….” “ A friend of yours? Who? And we might get killed…” “You’ll see who I’m talking about. And they’re not going to kill us.”
“We’re going to kill them, my love! I’ve been starving myself for this bloodbath that awaits us. There are five people for four of us. I shall give you the fifth person.” “That’s so sweet of you, Alec. Now, call the girls and see if they have Bella, Billy, and Eric.” “I’m waiting on another call, though.” “Call the girls, Alec!” “Fine…”
“We could kill the girls, Alec…” “What?” “More blood for us, and more power for us. We wouldn’t have to share with those brats. As much pain as they caused me when they were born, they deserve to die, as well. Think about it, Alec. We wouldn’t have to raise them, and they’re not inconspicuous with their killings like we are. They’ve been killing more students at SSU then what we allowed them.” “I like the way you think, Maura.” “Call them, we can figure out their deaths later.” “If we have to keep only one, I suggest Jane. She has a far better power than Heidi. Jane can cause pain in one stare…Heidi…well, she’s just extremely beautiful…”
“Heidi, my daughter! Do you have them?” “Yes, Father. We knocked them unconscious when they were on their way back from the Coffee Shop. They’re dressed and ready to be eaten.” “Excellent. Let me speak to Jane.” “Daddy?” “Jane. Now, I want you to put them in the tower when you get here and lock both doors and shut all the windows. Did you manage to see if Blue and his female are on their way?” “Yes. They’re about forty-five minutes behind us. Everything is going according to plan, Daddy.” “Wonderful.” I still don’t get why this had to be a Masquerade, though!?
Ten minutes later! Jane: “This is going to be so much fun. I haven’t killed a bunch of things in a long time.” “Jane, you just killed two students going to class before we left.” “Oh…right. Well, they were in the way.” They proceeded to hiss back and forth at each other and then “bleh” randomly.
“Hello?” Maura: “Who is it, Dear?” Blue: “I hope you know what you’re doing Alec. Because it would be such a waste if your plan were foiled.” “Yes, it would be a waste. May I ask who’s calling?” “You know damn well who it is! If you do anything to my brother and sister or Eric, I will never stop until your whole undead family is eliminated.” “Good luck with that, Grey…or whatever—” “It’s Blue. Blue DeLightful. And tonight, you’re going to wish you’d never met me.” *click* BADASS!!
“This is the place, Blue.” “Michelle, I want you to know that I’m madly in love with you, and just so you know, whatever happens tonight, the way I feel about you will never change.” “I love you, too, Blue. Now. Let’s go. We’ve got some Vampires to slay.” “You’re not scared anymore?” “I feel that maybe my being scared is what’s going to motivate me to fight twice as hard.” “Well, then let’s go.”
This is it! The destiny of the DeLightful family rests in the palms of Blue and Michelle, two artistic geniuses that rather use their logic than violence to defeat their enemies. Will they succeed? Well, you’ll just have to tune in next time! Just kidding! Keep on sliding forward.
Ten minutes of searching… “Blue, we’ve been searching for ten minutes!” I established that… Michelle: “All the doors are locked.” “What about that huge one in front of us? We haven’t tried that one.” “Let’s go.” “This better not be a trap…”
“Michelle, wait!” “What!?” “Don’t go so fast up the steps. Be very quiet, you never know about vampires. They can be anywhere.” “Don’t you think they would have gotten to us by now?” “Just be quiet, okay!?” “Fine!”
“Ugh…this would be way easier without this puffy dress!” Hey, you wanted to be all dramatic in come in unpractical clothing. “That was Blue’s idea.” True dat, true dat.
Yeah, it was a trap… Blue: “Who are you?” “Oh, I guess I don’t have that much of the Delightful features in me. Too much of my mother. I’m your cousin Jane, Blue. It’s like a family reunion.” “I don’t claim killers a part of my family.” “Killers? Oh, please! I just get really thirsty…”
“Cousin? Wait, you’re Alec’s daughter? I thought y—Blue, you never said anything about—” Heidi (off screen): “Because Eric wasn’t all too sure about our existence. Alec only threatened to create us. He never truly planned it out.”
Heidi: “I guess Father finally saw how beneficial we would be to the Volturi Guard. What, with Jane’s power to hurt people by one glance—don’t get too close—and my ability to just make someone forget their name as soon as they lay eyes on me…” “Yes, if you both were planning on playing hero tonight, I think you’ll have to reschedule for another evening. You’re in our house. You play our games.”
“We’re not afraid of you.” “Aren’t you?” “If you think you’re intimidating us by your words, then you’re foolish. Besides, Michelle and I both know what’s really going on here.” “Oh, and what’s that?”
“You’re going to die, too. It’s all a part of Alec’s plan!” “Excuse me, blondie, but what did you say!?” “Your mother and father are planning to kill you both!” Jane: “Heidi, don’t listen to her! She’s trying to get in your head!”
“Look, little girl, you may think that your mind games are going to work on me, but I’m not that stupid. I know what the plan is. And that is to eliminate all DeLightfuls and their affiliates.” “Heidi, you’re a DeLightful.” “Your point?” “Well, you just said the plan is to eliminate all DeLightfuls. The name on the plaque in the courtyard says Alec and Maura Dreadful.” BURNED.
“That’s it! I’m going to kill you right now! I don’t care if it messes things up. You’re obviously out of your mind!” “Am I, Heidi!? Or are you in denial? Have you ever wondered why Alec and Maura, your father and mother, decided to turn you both into vampires when you turned into teenagers, and then shipped you off to college without a backward glance?” “You don’t know anything—” “Or the fact that you never had a real childhood. Your parents always inside coffins during the day. You had to raise yourself! And you’re angry about it. You just wanted a normal life!” Jane: “THAT’S ENOUGH!”
Blue: “What is it? Is your mind flashing back to all the gruesome realities of your childhood? How you were too afraid to bring friends home from your school all the way in Veronaville because you were afraid your parents would eat them? You secretly wished you could be normal and know us—” “I NEVER wanted to know you! Your whole Legacy family had it all. You always had to be in the spotlight! Every one of you, even Alice, just soaking up the limelight. It’s makes me want to die!” “Really? It makes you want to die?” “I’ve wished for death more than anyone in this world.” “Be careful what you wish for, Jane…” Oooh, what’s happening!?
“Wh-what is! What is this! STOP THIS!” “It’s just a bit of Dark Magic…” (yeah, totally not flies!) “Dark Magic!? What?! Please, stop it!?” “Too bad I don’t know how.”
“No…no! How could you do this to her! Please, Grim…I’m undead, as well. Can’t we work out—” “Oh, yeah…you’re next.” “Huh?”
GOOD IS ALWAYS OVER EVIL, BITCH! Sorry about that. Moving on.
Grim: “Good thing I had my phone charged, Blue. Otherwise I would have been taking your soul tonight.” “Wait…this was all Grim’s doing?” Blue: “We go way back…” “To when!?” Grim: “Well, one day he was playing in the rain—” Blue: “Look, it’s not important! Anyway, Grim here saved my life, uncharacteristically, and we’ve kind of had a friendship.” “Weird…alright. Well thanks, Mr. Reaper. Come on, Blue. We’ve got some more Vamps to slay.” Grim: “I’ll be back! Heehee…I’ve always wanted to say that!”
“Catch you later, Grim!” “Yeah, yeah…now what is this App Store on here? Ugh…stupid Blackberry…”
Half an hour later… “Well, no one is in that attic. I wish we could get inside the house, and not just down those stairs.” “Blue, do you think Bella, Billy and Eric are inside?” “Well, they’re not on the roof. I imagine they would be in some confined room. And there doesn’t seem to be a dungeon…where are they?”
“Bella, where are we!?” “I’m sorry, okay!? I thought this was going to be a party.” Eric: “Yeah, well you thought wrong. You sure do look on the bright side of things. I knew this was going to be a trick!” Bella: “Well you didn’t exactly speak up and say that!” Billy: “Guys, stop yelling. There’s limited oxygen in this tower.” ALL: “HEEEEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLPPP!!”
“Michelle, you did great up there, on the rooftop.” “Really?” “Yeah, you didn’t seem scared at all.” “Actually, my heart was racing the whole time. I’m a drama major, remember? I know how to show the right emotions even if I don’t truly feel them.” “Of course. I think you’re just fearless.” “Fearless enough to take on two more vampires?” “Absolutely.”
“Just, this time, don’t get too close to Alec’s wife. She’s a head vampire…so she can turn you into one of them in the blink of an eye. She’s had practice with her hypnotizing powers.” “I feel that knowledge of their power stops you from being hypnotized.” “Who gave you that idea?” “Well…you.”
“Another thing, Michelle…vampires are quick. They can pop out of nowhere in the blink of an eye as well.” “I’ll be on my guard.” “You could probably outrun them only if they were distracted by something else or hurt.” Guys, behind you!
And in front of you, as well… “Good evening Lady and Gentleman. For tonight’s entertainment—” Shut up. You’re not the Joker. “Ahem. Glad you both could make it to the Masquerade.” Michelle: “Seems like a bad turnout.”
Maura: “There were more, but we got thirsty.” Michelle: “Where are the others?” “I’m sure I have no idea what you are talking about.” “Oh, I think you know exactly what I’m talking about. Where are Billy, Bella and Eric!?”
“Oh, you don’t want to mess with me, Michelle. I am a mother who lost her only daughters. That’s like killing a mother bear’s cubs right in front of her eyes.” “At least you got the bear part right. You have a mustache.” “You little BRAT!” Of all the things to get mad over…Vampires are so vain.
Alec: “Come on, ‘Little Blue’, show me if Aro taught you to fight. Or was he too busy with work? And instead Troy taught you how to paint…heh heh.” Blue: “Don’t talk about my family.” “Or what? You’ll stab me with a paintbrush.” “No. I’ll just get really angry.” “Bring it Blue boy.”
Blue: “Who’s calling who Uncle, now!?” Michelle: “Go Blue!” “Michelle, watch out for the female!” “She’s crying!” “Michelle! I got his keys! *throws keys at her* Go inside and get out of here! I’ll catch up later!” “Blue—” “Just go!”
Ten minutes later or so… “Where is he? It’s almost daylight…”
“Oh, Michelle! Ready or not….here I come.”
Maura: “Finally, I found—” “Me?” “Blue!?” GASP! “How’d you get in here!?” “Easy…I have the keys. Alec isn’t too smart, is he? He had both sets of keys in his pockets.” “I told him to hide them!”
Alec: “You think a locked door will stop us. We’ll just drink your blood then.” Blue: “Oh, and how will you drink when your bladder is just so full, and you’re way too tired, obviously…” Maura: “Alec! Get us out of here!” Alec: “I don’t have the keys!!”
“Fine! Then if I die, one of them is dying with me!” Oh no… “Come, my minion, enter the age of darkness, of death. Open your eyes, and breathe your last breath. Sink your teeth into the world of blood. In a world where your red heart will never again thud.” Blue, no!
“You think I’m stupid, don’t you?” “I-I just…” “And that was a dumb rhyme, too.” “B-but it usually works—” “The sun. It’s draining your power. You can barely move, right? It’s the sun.”
“This is all your fault, Maura!” “My fault, how is this my fault, Alec!?” “If you hadn’t wanted to have kids, we wouldn’t be in this predicament! And, if you weren’t so power-hungry—” “Me, power-hungry! If anyone is intent on power twenty-four seven it’s you! I’ll rule Riverblossom this and The DeLightfuls will pay that! Newsflash, Dracu-idiot! Riverblossom isn’t even that big of a town! It’s amazingly country! If you wanted to take over something, go to Pleasantview, you dipsh—”
She has a vile tongue.
Maura: “—Full of cauliflower in the back of a huge truck and right up in there. THAT’S what I’d like to do to you right now you extreme idiot!” She cursed for about five sim hours…
Alec: “Look what you did, Maura! You cursed until Noon! The worse time of day for Vampires! The sun is inescapable!” Maura: “My fault! Your extreme want for power and your jealousy caused all of this! You horrible person! I HATE YOU!” Doesn’t everyone? Alec is, after all, a Dumbass. :D
“We did it, Blue! Honey, we did it!” “Honey?” “Er…I just got caught up—” “No. It’s cute. Yes, Darling, we did it.” “I think we should go find your brother and sister and Eric.” “Right.”
“Bella!” “Michelle! Wow, you look gorgeous…” “Bella, you do too. I’m so sorry we didn’t come to you sooner…I think Blue and I had a feeling where you guys were, but we need to get rid of—” “You don’t have to explain, Michelle. I’m really sorry I put you all through this.” “It’s okay. It was actually kind of fun…in a weird, sick way.”
“That’s all fine and dandy…but can we go and get something to eat. The sadistic vampires could have at least had some food sitting out before they locked us up.” “Oh, Billy…fine, we’ll go to that diner downtown. Once we alert the police the vampires are gone.” “I’m so hungry…” I love Billy :D
Bella: “Last time I ever go to a party.” Eric: “Unless it’s a wedding party….I like wedding cakes.” Billy: “Please, stop talking about food.” Blue: “Too much adventure for you to be with a DeLightful? You could always back out of being with me…” Michelle: “I could…but I won’t. Besides…this wasn’t enough adventure. Not at all.” Eric: “Ugh…sentimental moment coming up.” Bella: “Hey!”
“Michelle. I think we’ve been through it all. I want to be through even more. Please, go on an adventure with me and marry me.” “Of course!” Bella: “That’s so romantic.” Eric: “Yeah…too romantic. Makes my proposal pale in comparison.” Billy: “At least you guys have someone.” Bella: “What happened to Sophie? Or that Cheerleader…?” Billy: “Not my type.” Don’t worry Billy, I have someone for you!
“Truly, a successful evening. Now…let’s get some food in Billy before he starts eating plants! Breakfast is on me!” Billy: “Good, cuz I’m broke…” AWWW! Happy endings! I love them. And now I’m not doing another huge plot until generation V! Completely draining me of my creativity….gahh.
Okay, children of the corn. This is the end of the “Ashes” plot (that’s what I’ve been calling it when I was writing out the details in my Emogrrrl journal ((I’m not emo)) and I decided that’s a great plot name!). So! Join me soon with Blue and Michelle entering the Legacy Lot, showing Tracy and Aro for the first time in like…years. They’ve been collecting cobwebs. And VOLTERRA!!! Yay, we get to see that lovable feline once more! There shall be a wedding, and some kids. And I’m going to go rest my fingers in ice because they’re on the verge of falling off. RIH (Rest in Hell) Alec, Maura, Jane, and Heidi. I hated you all. Bye-bye! (Oh, and Jane Stacks and that random College townie didn’t really die, nor did Audrey. That’s why their deaths were “off-screen”)
