MonstrosityLegacy Recap (As Told by Donna The Cat)
OHAI EVERYBODY! I doubt you remember me, but I am the third generation heiress for the official line of Ronstrosity cats. I have one son, named Jamie, and live with this other berserk cat called Sake whom I hate with a passion. Anyway, Shrimp asked me to tell you guys all about everything that's happened in the legacy up to chapter 11! So here goes.
When we first meet our founder, she's passed out on a 5x5 empty lot. She seems to have a noodlesoother on her head and is lost for what to do. But then Brandi LeTourneau explains to her that she's supposed to start a legacy. After being told this she gets the first in a string of several jobs, including education, military, and others.
As time passes on, Mina meets Joe Carr and falls head-over-heels for him in a matter of days. They take no time hesitating to move in together and have a midnight wedding.
Mina finally settles on a job in Law Enforcement, since her classic family sim LTW was to be a Captain Hero. Also, just for the record, her stats were 4/7/8/3/3. So she was kind of sloppy, outgoing, very active, serious, and slightly grumpy.
As Mina's story goes on, the audience is also told about a little girl who lives across town. At this time, no one is sure that she relates to the legacy at all, but it becomes evident as she grows up that she’s ignored by her father, who’s always too busy building robots.
Soon Mina and Joe adopted two cats. Moonshine and Heidi, my grandparents.
It's not long before Mina discovers she's pregnant with her first child. Soon after her pregnancy is discovered, she receives an email from SimShrimp, asking her to come over.
In Shrimp’s office, it's revealed that SimShrimp is utterly crazy, and talks to voices in her head. Another important event is that Mina recognizes one of the paintings in this room as one of the paintings from a few reoccurring dreams she’d had. Author's note: If I could go back and do this scene a little differently, I definitely would. See, what happened is that at the time I wanted to do a commentary legacy, and was trying to think of a clever way to switch. However, I decided later that I wanted to stick to the style I currently had, making the whole scene irrelevant and confusing except for the painting recognition.
When Mina gets home from her meeting, she gives birth to baby Adam.
Adam grows up to be a real peachy boy. 9/10/9/3/1, a neat, active, seriously mean, naked hot-tubber.
After Adam's birthday, Joe goes over to Shrimp's Shops and tries to buy love potion #8.5 but is interrupted by a "not-so-interesting" guy who questions him about Mina.
Soon enough it's Adam's birthday again and he definitely takes after his mother in the "wall wraslin'" department. “Wall wraslin’” is a family tradition that started one day when Mina began attacking a wall.
Time flies quickly and Mina gives birthday to her second and last son, Aiden.
Eventually, Heidi gives birth to two kittens. Owen and Leita, named after two characters in Shrimp's favorite TV shows.
Time goes on to reveal that Adam is an incredibly arrogant little boy.
Aiden grows up to be a trouble magnet, it seems that everywhere he goes he gets into some sort of mess. And because Shrimp has a strange sense of humor, she wrote lyrics to a Later Days song on this slide. The song’s lyrics go a little something like this: “I’m leaving, I think I get it now, I think that you should be proud,”
Mina had been a bit suspicious about her dreams lately, as they hadn't seemed to be revealing much, but then she noticed the biggest thing in her dreams so far. The little girl sitting in her high chair at the table with her arguing parents. It’s obvious to the audience that this little girl is Lily. And while most readers were clever enough to zone in on the fact that the woman was Mina, slim to none could guess the father.
However Mina had no clue what to do about her dreams, so life continued on for the Ronstrosity family. Owen grew up pretty soon and Mina immediately adopted Roux to be a mate for him.
Aiden also grows up and continues the family tradition of wraslin' walls. Aiden actually grows up to be a pretty smart and cautious boy. He plans things early and has a good head on his shoulders. However it doesn’t stop the fact that he just seems to be generally unlucky.
Then it's MOAR birthdays! But this time it's Adam's. He grew up to be a romance sim with an LTW of have 20 simultaneous lovers. Adam has a pretty rough time his first day of teenagerdom. Firstly his grades drop, then he gets fired from his job, then he strikes out with Sophie Miguel, and then again with Robin Greaves.
That night, Adam, understandably, has trouble sleeping. Mina does, also, but for a different reason. Eventually the two both fall asleep, and Mina has another one of her dreams. In this one, the man and the woman are arguing again. Except this time the woman walks out on the man, leaving the daughter.
After Mina's dream, Lily has her birthday. She then answers the door, and finds her father's skanky fiancé, Jenna.
The next night, Mina looks for some consolation in her best friend, Brandi, but doesn't seem to find any. Instead she finds out that Brandi herself is really stressed, so Mina invites her to move in. Brandi declines, saying she's an independent woman.
After Adam's long, unfortunate first day of teenagerhood, he meets Ivy Copur, who agrees to go out with him that weekend. At the time, Adam had no idea that this was leading up to his big recovery, in which he scores his first kiss with Robin, gets his 4.0 GPA back, and a promotion at his new job.
Aiden, like Adam, has it rough when he first grows up, but in a more drastic way. In his first week alone he has four near death experiences. It's also worth mentioning that he was rather ignored by the rest of his family. The only one who watched him grow up was Brandi. When he grew up his aspiration was family and he had an LTW of 6 grandkiddies.
When the boys are both teenagers, SimShrimp calls Mina and invites her to a little meeting, where she explains heirship and they decide to do an heir poll on BFTAF forums* to decide who should be heir. *BFTAF forums is an awesome website where a whole bunch of legacy writers gather. The official site name is boolprop.com, go check it out.
Across town, Lily meets her new step-brother for the first time. His name is Eric and he has a funky purple cat named Kulo that his friend Andy helped him spray paint. The fact that Eric’s friend, Andy, is mentioned is worth remembering.
Mina had another dream again, pretty soon but this time the story progressed instead of playing the same argument over and over. The dream revealed things like that the woman in the dream was, in fact, Mina and that it was Shrimp that had sabotaged her with the noodlesoother cap and placed her on the empty 5x5 lot. Upon figuring this all out, Mina tries to contact Shrimp but only gets a mysterious man's voice on the other line, telling her that if she wants to know more, to meet him within the next week.
Time flies right on by and the boys head off to college. Nothing particularly eventful happens until the end of the first semester, when Aiden asks 'Ms. Brandi' if she'd like to hang out for the afternoon. She, of course, says yes. When she arrives the couple quickly get swept away with their emotions and before he rushes off to class, Aiden gets his first kiss out of her. But when Adam's talking to Brandi later, she seems a bit paranoid and unfocussed, as if she regrets getting carried away.
Time went on and Adam wooed girls, Brandi continued to act paranoid, and the boys finally moved out of the dorms and into The Hut, a new Greek House on campus built just for them.
While outside sometime later, Adam runs into some guy named Chris, who's looking for his sister. His sister, Lily, ironically has the same name and looks similar to Mina's supposed "daughter" Lily. Eventually Chris and Mina's "daughter" Lily fall in love after discovering that Chris's sister mysteriously died in Lily's dorm. Author’s Note: Okay, I know this little tidbit was beyond confusing. If I’d had more time I’d have gone on to explain further. The fact of the matter is that Lily, Chris’s sister, was supposed to play a big part in Mina’s Lily and Chris blossoming romance, however I didn’t have enough time to expand on this, which made some things nonsensical, like this.
Closer to graduation, Chris invites Adam and Aiden over for dinner and introduces them to his girlfriend, Lily. Things get very awkward when Lily discovers that the boys are also Mina's children and she runs away and starts crying in her room.
After the boys graduated, but before they moved out, Shrimp invited them to another meeting. This time revealing that Aiden had been selected for heirship by just two votes. She also told Adam that she had a wife picked out for him. He attempted to weasel his way out of the situation and demanded a fairer option. He ended up getting his very own bachelor challenge, which was long, extensive, boring, but pivotal.
When Aiden got a chance to finally throw his graduation party, he invited a bunch of friends, including Amanda, Allyn, and of course, Brandi. However, while Aiden was sitting right on the couch with Brandi, Allyn decided to make it known that she was in love with Aiden. This really hit on Brandi’s insecurities and sent her into a crazy, jealous rage and made her say things she honestly didn't mean to Aiden.
After college Adam got his bachelor challenge and Missy won instead of Nicole, who was the favorite to win and his originally intended wife. Adam and Missy had three children including:
Aiden, or Aid for short so that he doesn't get confused with his uncle, an irritable, serious knowledge sim.
And June, an arrogant, fun-loving, but generally good-natured pleasure sim.
Adam also had a child with Nicole, his intended. This is Adam Jr. or (reluctantly) Addy, a stubborn, surprisingly monogamous, romance sim. His girlfriend, Phoebe, the one that gave him his nickname is worth mentioning as she comes into play later.
When we return to the main course of action, Mina is meeting the mysterious phone man (Yes, the “not-so-interesting” man from the store that Joe met), we find a long, drawn out scene where everything is explained to Mina. She was married to Lee, they had a child, Mina walked out on him. Shrimp took her in, then "innocently" knocked her out and gave her a new home and a "chance to start over." In the process of all this being explained, Mina meets her daughter, Lily. Also, I suppose it's good to mention that Lee threatens to kill her. (Lee is arrested for this, by Lily's barber-robot-cop.)
Also, during this whole process, Jenna, Lily's step-mom, abandons Eric, so Lily volunteers to adopt him, seeing no other choice. Author’s Note: It’s interesting to think about now, but originally I intended for Lily and Eric to be love interests, however I royally screwed up the timeline on this branch of the family, (Lily was supposed to be graduated university before Adam and Aiden ever considered it a thought) but I love the direction the story took with Lily adopting Eric. Though it didn’t stop the ‘shippers, who still wanted Erily to occur.
When Aiden moves back in with his family, Mina convinces him to propose to someone before it's too late. He can't dwell on losing Brandi forever, after all! He hastily calls up an old friend, JaidenGilsCarbo and asks for her hand. She accepts, even if the proposal is a little spontaneous. They were married the next day.
But of course, every wedding party has a crasher. This one just so happened to be Brandi, who was attempting to apologize to Aiden, but then discovered that he just got married to Jaiden. A few days later, when Jaiden begins to show her first sign of pregnancy, she's talking to Adam and reveals that she's not too happy being married into a legacy. It's definitely not all the partying that being a downtownie brings.
Over at Lily's new house, where Lily, Eric, and Lily’s cop-barber-robot Roy are living, Chris arrives home from a "business trip" and has a surprise for Lily. A daughter named Vera! After Chris and Lily’s quick marriage ceremony, they run down to the basement to discuss this whole situation. Chris tells her that her mother couldn't take care of her any more, but doesn't mention who her mother is. Also, while they're discussing Vera, Eric comes downstairs and Lily and Chris realize that they'd forgotten all about his birthday.
Jaiden soon gives birth to twins, Sarah and Brendan. Sarah and Brendan mean princess and prince, respectively, which comes into play with Sarah later.
Sarah grows up with a 6/8/9/3/1 personality. A kind of neat, outgoing, active, serious meanie. She's nicknamed by her father to be "princess” and does grow up to be a bit spoiled.
Brendan also grew up with a similar personality, but Mina encouraged him up to 6/8/9/5/3, semi-neat, outgoing, active, somewhat playful, and not the nicest boy you’ll ever meet.
When coming home from work one day, Jaiden ran into one of her old partying buddies, Marylena. Marylena asks where she's been and Jaiden tells her she got married. Marylena invites her to join her for one last party experience, Jaiden declines.
Then Roux gives birth to me (Donna) and my three siblings, Derek, Alison, and Gracie.
Later in the week Jaiden calls up Marylena and tells her she's changed he mind and will join her downtown. Things get a little out of hand and end up in a way no one anticipated. Unfortunately for Jaiden, Brandi also happened to be there that night and took pictures of her with Marylena.
Time passes uneventfully and Mina and Aiden start up a business with their Jamacian robot, Gearston helping out. The business is called Cut, Pluck, and Apply and sells makeovers as well as odds and ends.
Back over at Lily’s house, everyone seems to be adjusting well. Chris and Lily don’t have any kids of their own, as they’re too busy taking care of Eric and Vera. One day, while Eric was working on his garden later, Melanie, a girl from his English class, just so happened to walk by. She asks him if he wants to go out with her that weekend and he enthusiastically agrees.
And then we’re introduced to Andy. Remember Eric’s childhood friend? Most people didn’t. At this point, all we know about Andy is that he seems to have an anger problem, as displayed with his act of violence towards a wall lamp when his computer doesn’t work like it should.
When Mina, Aiden, and Gearston get back from the store, Mina teaches Brendan all about wall wraslin'. So far, neither Sarah or Brendan had shown any interest in wraslin' them walls, but Mina was determined to keep the family tradition going.
Eventually, Brandi tells Aiden about what happened between Jaiden and Marylena, Aiden tries to consult his wife about it, but things don't go over so smoothly.
She ends up driving out on him. Remember those songs lyrics I mentioned earlier? Funny how they come back into play here. Did I mention how unlucky Aiden seems to be? “Well I’m leaving, I think I get it now, I think that you should be proud…”
Meanwhile, the twins grew up again. Sarah’s not handling her mom’s absence all too well. Sarah grew up to be a fortune sim, like her mother. Her LTW was to become a hall of famer. Author’s Note: Time. Time time time. If I had more of it I would have expanded on Jaiden’s effect on Sarah, however this was just chalked up to teen angst.
Brendan grew up to be a pleasure sim with the LTW to reach the top of the culinary career. Author’s Note: You know what’s funny about Brendan? I never actually planned for Sarah to be heiress. Ever since they were born I knew Brendan would be my heir. I just fell in love with him. And you know what else is funny? Brendan’s character is the most static character I’ve ever had. He’s just never really changed, and if I believed in reincarnation, Brendan’s character would be classified as an old soul.
When Jade arrives at her destination the first thing she did was try to find Marylena. When she did, she was laying in bed with some guy who had a rainbow mohawk. Upon seeing this, Jade realize that she doesn't belong in the party scene any more. She realize who she really is now, JaidenRonstrosity, married to Aiden Ronstrosity and the mother of two children.
After having a momentary break down, Jaiden goes downstairs and attempts to cook herself a snack, however the stove is set on fire, and eventually Jaiden is set on fire as well. She slowly burns to death without any help from the other party goers. It's still unsure if this was an accident or not. Author's note: Yes, Jaiden does switch outfits in this scene. It was done intentionally to differentiate between Jade, party girl, and Jaiden, wife/mother.
The whole house has a sad air drifting in it when the news is heard, but Aiden is the worst. Everyone pitches in to help cheer him up, but nothing really works.
Over at Lily's house, Eric found himself being manipulated by Melanie. Vera criticized him for being so flexible, but he didn't really care. He just wanted Melanie to like him.
All too quickly it becomes a very sad day in the Ronstrosity house. That's right, my father, Owen, passed away.
And later that day, Mina passed away, as well. It was all quite sad.
Life goes on, though, and on that note, Joe tried to achieve his LTW. He did, though, with the help of his new business, named TVs Galore because at first all he sold was TVs.
When they got home, they were greeted by a familiar, yet older face. That's right, my little Jamie grew right up.
Soon it was Joe's time to leave us, as well. And he left before he even got a chance to say goodbye to his granddaughter, Sarah.
Mere minutes after Joe passed away, Shrimp called Aiden and told him "it's time" to choose an heir. Without much consideration, he chose Sarah. However Sarah seemed somewhat reluctant.
Now that Eric and Vera were both teenagers and somewhat self-sufficient, Lily and Chris decide to have a child of their own. Imagine their surprise when they had twins, Ezra and Yanai.
The day before Brendan and Sarah decided to leave for college, Aiden decided to take his mom’s advice, called up an old friend, Amanda, and moved on. This didn’t escape Sarah’s notice.
The next morning Sarah and Brendan said their goodbyes and pack up their bags, because they were headed to college. Also, Aid, Calen, and Addy are head to college too.
Eric and Vera decide to head off to college, as well, after Eric got a convincing phone call from Melanie that it was a good idea.
When the point of view switches over to Melanie's end of the phone call, it reveals that she's with Andy, and he seems like he’s in a hurry to get somewhere.
At college, Sarah receives a mysterious phone call from a mysterious person who asks her to hang out. Sarah’s really, really excited, but tries to play it cool.
Next we find out that Andy and Melanie were heading to Eric’s house. Melanie’s feeling a little anxious about whether Eric left already or not. Chris answers the door and lets them know that Eric did, in fact, leave for college, calming Melanie's nerves only for a minute.
That same night, Sarah leaves a message with one of the sleazy guys that lives in her door that she's "at the Secret Society if any one asks," and slips off to be with Aldric, the guy from the phone call. They have a blast at a small club where it's only the two of them the whole time. They stay until the very last minute when they're finally kicked out.
Brendan also got a girlfriend, Hailey. They didn't stir up too much trouble, so not much was said about them. Author’s Note: Looking back, I really didn’t want to get these two together, but their natural three bolts won out in the end. Funny how now I can’t imagine them without each other. These two complement each other so well that I can’t even write one without the other any more. I think they really are OTP, and they’re definitely one of my favorite couples.
After their freshman year was over and a pretty harsh telling off to Allyn, Sarah and Brendan moved into The (newly renovated) Hut.
After they'd moved in Aiden called Sarah and tried to set her up on a blind date, which she ended up going on, not being able to disappoint her father.
Meanwhile, Andy and Melanie had arrived at college and were desperately seeking out Eric and Vera. When Melanie tries to question why Andy wants to harm Eric of all people, she gets a mental picture of Andy being abused as a child. Andy monologues about how Eric got everything in life while Andy was spat on.
When he realizes Melanie isn’t listening, he crosses his hands over his chest and insults her. The major part of this action is the fact that it’s revealed that Andy’s now holding a gun.
Back to Sarah, she ends up going on that blind date her dad set her up on. However, the date was a flub and Sarah ends up storming out due to her date’s chauvinistic way of thinking and arrogance combined with emotions over her grandparents’ death flooding back.
After Sarah’s blind date went horribly wrong, we coincidentally find Addy and Phoebe were out on a nice romantic date, where Phoebe revealed that Melanie is her twin sister.
While Phoebe's telling her tragic tale of woe to Addy, it cuts to a scene where Melanie and Andy lured Eric into a dark, dank alley and Andy was holding a gun to Eric. However, Vera runs over to find what’s going on. Melanie panics and kicks Andy in the back of the neck. She then realizes that she knocked him out and begs them to help her find a safe place to take him. They end up opening one of the doors that the alley leads to and drag him into a small white room.
Eric, who’s been in shock ever since his childhood friend pulled a gun on him finally asks for an explanation as to what’s going on. Vera snaps at him, accusing Melanie of attempting to murder both of them. Melanie turns and, in a bout of anger, shoots and kills Vera.
Perhaps Andy was faking, perhaps the gunshot woke him up, but whatever it was, Andy picked himself up off the table after Melanie killed Vera. Melanie, drunk with power at the thought of taking someone’s life, smiles as he gets up. However, when Andy then explains to Eric about how life isn’t fair (having flashbacks to his childhood while explaining this) and shoots him, Melanie immediately reverts to her normal self. She ends up collapsing to the floor crying as Eric takes his last few breaths of air and Andy walks out.
On a different, less dramatic, part of campus, proposals are aplenty. Aid to Kazuna (a girl in his dorm), Brendan to Hailey, and Aldric to Sarah.
At The Hut, Sarah invites Daniel and Cherry, two of her good friends, to move in and be placeholders before they graduate.
But soon enough the time arrives and Brendan and Sarah are dressed in their cap and gown (well, Sarah was, anyway) and on their way back home.
Upon arriving home, Sarah and Brendan settled down to play a game of poker. They have a serious conversation about whether or not Sarah’s ready to take over the legacy. Brendan tells Sarah that if she can’t handle it, she doesn’t have to. She reveals to Brendan that she’s really not sure she can, but she doesn’t want to let dad down. Brendan tells her that letting the heirship fall into his lap wouldn’t be letting dad down. Sarah tells him that’s not what she meant and he says he understands then heads up to bed, leaving her with her insecurities.
Elsewhere, it’s Adam and Missy’s birthday, and they celebrate by reminiscing about the old days and pink shoes.
And Shrimp has to tell Sarah to make a choice.
Sarah can either marry Aldric or take her role as heiress, but not both. Sarah, after moments of speculation, decides to marry Aldric and let Brendan take the heirship. The easy part was deciding. The hard part was telling her dad of her decision.
It was a beautiful wedding, complete with a light snow, and her fully supportive father.
And then there were babies. From left to right: Chandler, Ava, and Ethan.
Chandler, 5/8/4/5/4, was a very moderate child, with his obnoxious amount of outgoing points being his only outstanding trait. Growing up he was a very curious little child.
Oh, and then there were more babies. And Aiden was happy because OMG SIX GRANDBABIES YES. Left to right: Kevin, Emily, and Tiffany.
And Chandler grows up again, unfortunately, displaying no sign of having the wall wraslin’ trait. Suppose it died out this early?
When the headmaster visits to admit Chandler into private school, it’s brought up that Chandler is obsessed with the supernatural. Headmaster: “Riveting tale, chap.”
And then my grandkitten is born! Her name is Tinsel.
But on a more serious note, the same night my little kitten is born, Aiden sees the ghost of his deceased wife. Basically, she tells him she’s sorry. She doesn’t deserve his forgiveness, but she just couldn’t stand not saying goodbye. She moves closer to Aiden and he panics, terrified of seeing a ghost. They aren’t supposed to exist after all.
Chandler walked in just as the surreal moment faded. Chandler: “OMG! Were you kissing a ghost?” Aiden: “Yeah. Grandma.” Chandler: “OMG! I knew it!
After that, Aiden broke things off with Amanda, for obvious reasons.
And then Kevin grew up. Kevin was a fairly normal little boy. There’s really not much unique about him. He’s not exactly go-with-the-flow. More wishy-washy and unsure of himself. He’s fairly oblivious and has a bit of a short temper.
And then we flash over to Lily’s house, where Ezra was asking her parents if she could go out and play with the other kids. They say no, but it’s Ezra’s birthday anyway and her cousin June is coming over.
When Ezra grows up we find that her brother, Yanai, died from unspoken causes, however his ghost is right there with her when she blows out the candles. After she does, she tries to convince her cousin to hit downtown with her, however Lily wanders over and overhears the conversation. June tries to make up an excuse as to why she can’t sneak out and fails miserably. Afterward, Lily confronts her daughter about her weekend plans but Ezra blows her off.
And then my grandkitten, Tinsel, and I celebrate out birthdays.
In order to get Kevin into private school, Hailey invited the headmaster over for dinner again. During the dinner, however, Korey brings up the subject of paranormal and causes a scene. Chandler and Kevin are sent to their room. Chandler upset over the fact that no one listens to him, Kevin upset over the fact that he didn’t get to finish his dinner.
But that night, after all the disagreement during dinner, Chandler heard some sort of racket up on the roof and ran up to investigate. And what did he find? He found his father being abducted by aliens. First thing he did? Run and tell mommy that “Daddy’s been abducted by aliens!”
After a few days, Brendan was returned to Earth, not having a clue as to what just happened.
The next morning when Brendan woke up, the expected touchy-feely moment was cut short by Brendan’s sudden need to vomit.
With no one sure of what happened that night, many assumptions were made. Aiden automatically assumed Brendan disappeared to go clubbing. A reasonable thought, considering what happened to his mother. However there was one person who knew the truth. But everyone seemed to think the truth was stranger than fiction.
Chandler, noticing his dad’s sudden weight gain, proposed an idea. Chandler: “Alien spawn?” Brendan: “Ridiculous.” Chandler: “What would you name an alien baby?” Brendan: “… Skylar.”
And when the alien baby was born, well, wouldn’t you feel victorious if you were in Chandler’s position? Suddenly, after being wrong your whole life, you’re right? Awesome. The baby girl was, in fact, named Skylar.
Oh, and most everyone ignored Kevin growing up, because OMG ALIEN BABY.
And then, after some inspirational words and a phone call left hanging, it was Aiden’s time.
And with one final recitation of the song I’m Leaving by Later Days, Aiden was gone.
And then we’re in a prison and there’s a security officer with a funny accent who’s questioning Lee. It’s also revealed to us now that Lee, as well as Cindy, the security officer, is a vampire. Also, Cindy is Vera’s mom.
And next is the big move. To Strangetown! Where little alien girls grow into big little alien girls! And Chandler falls asleep on Shrimp’s couch! And Jamaican robots lose their accents and eat grilled cheese sandwiches! And vampires kill people for their houses! And Kevin meets a girl! Oh yes.
So basically, as the squiggly lines show, Kevin meets Esther. Esther confuses Kevin with words. Esther ditches Kevin. Kevin gets HULK SMASH ANGRY. Chandler and “Kev” have a mock serious moment. Chandler is the bomb diggity at pool. Brendan invites Esther to birthday party. Awkward, indirect conversation ensues. Esther confuses Kevin with words. Kevin tickles Esther then kisses her. And then Kevin’s all like “Happy birthday!” awkwardly because he was too busy kissing Esther to watch his parents get old. Yay!
Also, there’s life on Twikkii Island. June and Ezra bought an apartment on the beach, a June has awkward sexual fantasies about one of the guys who lives in the building.
So Ezra bets her that June doesn’t have the nerve to approach the guy, and so she goes up and tries to invite him to a bonfire thing, but, see, the guy’s Andy, so of course he’s a total jerk to her. Ezra, who’d been watching from the window, got really ticked off with Andy. Who did he think he was, treating her cousin like that?
And then my darling Jamie grew up into an elder kitty. Isn’t he precious? But he wasn’t the only one growing up. Chandler was already at college at this point. And this is where chapter eleven begins! :D
