Woo! Chapter Five
            baby...and still on
  Generation A. Well, that's
     what you get for hiring
      someone ...
‘Daddy?’


       ‘Rivers? Go away. I’m
                   sleeping!’


    ‘I had a bad dream. Can I
                  sl...
‘…and then you can strangle
  Rivers, like that, and since
     you have no chance of
becoming heir ever, I will be

‘Yes, well, all the more
 reason to get this sorted out.
 Who knows how long Mum
   and Dad will be around? I
 need to cem...
So, Cinderella, do you want
 to help Rivers and I sort out
         your parents or not?


       ‘Why not ask Oasis?’


 ...
‘MUMMY!’


       ‘Oh, hey there Oliver.’


                         Oasis.


               ‘Yeah, Okapi.’


     Teal, p...
Rivers?


                 ‘Yes Alice.’


       What happened to your
brilliant plan to sort out your
         parents re...
‘So…’


                      ‘So…’


        ‘Gads this is stupid!’


 ‘Rivers! Don’t be so rude.’


 ‘Sorry Mum. But it ...
‘That’s a lie, and to prove
 my point I’m going to leave
now and check on Cupid and
                      Oscar.’


  ‘You...
‘Daddy, I don’t want you and
 Mummy to keep fighting. It
      upsets me and Oasis.’


           ‘And Cinderella?’


 ‘We...
‘Well, Rivers, sometimes
         people change, and
sometimes you think people
 change but it turns out that
they are sti...
‘Wow, this stuff is so
                   COOL!’


      Rivers, we’re here for a
    reason, remember. We’re
 looking for...
‘Wow *giggle* That is so
                   cool.’


                     What?


    ‘I can hear mum on the
phone in the ...
Oi! Watch where you point
                 that thing!


‘Alice, if I’m heir, can I have
all this stuff when Dad dies?’


...
‘Well, apparently Dad’s been
 using this big doohicky a lot
        lately. I don’t like the
  readings I’m getting, Alice...
Ummm…Rivers? Are you
sure that you should be doing
                         that?


         ‘Daddy wouldn’t own
anything ...
‘Hmm…’


                    What is it?


‘I suddenly love Dad. A lot. I
 want to spend the rest of my
     life with him...
‘So, Cinderella, do you get it?’


   ‘Sure. You’re contemplating
         incest with our father.’


          ‘NO! That ...
‘How soon?’


‘Well, I’ll be plotting your
 murder up until July, so I
    should have a plot by
                November....
‘Guys? I have a plan.’


‘…do you think you can help
    me break into Dad’s lab
                    again.’


    ‘Maybe ...
‘Alice?’


                  Yes Oasis.


  ‘I do have a plan. I drew it
     and everything. Lookit!’


     That looks g...
Oh noes. Gregory has
claimed his first victim.


‘GIVE ME THE CAKE
        YOU HO!!!’


   Maybe she deserved it
though. A...
‘There’s a good boy
                 Gregory.’


                     ‘Moo.’


 ‘Yes, a very good boy. Kill
lots of annoyi...
‘Cowplant milk has
   numerous uses. The most
obvious is immortality, but it
 can be used for other things
               ...
‘Yeah, that’s the good stuff.
 Remember Gregory, lots of
                   townies.’


                      ‘Moo.’


Jus...
‘…just add the cowplant
  milk, and it’s almost done.
Just a few months to mature,
  and we should be rolling.’


       H...
‘Hey Alice, we heard you
                   calling.’


Cinderella, I think Lore, your
  dad, may have gone a little
     ...
‘We can talk later, okay
      Alice. It’s dinnertime.’


    ‘Cinders, share. Mummy
    only brought one bottle.’


‘Get ...
‘Ha ha ha! I win! Bottle is
  mine now Cinders. You
                   loose.’


‘What. Did. You. Say. To.
               ...
‘Daddy? You love me,
                     right?’


  ‘Of course Oasis. Between
     you and me, you’re my
  favourite. Yo...
‘Alice, I got you a boat.
  Rivers said that you didn’t
                   have one.’


Well…thanks Oasis. I guess.


    ...
‘Why doesn’t this get
                 easier?’


No idea. Just keep pushing
 while I try and think up a

 colouring as all the others,
called Sweetness, after one

Rivers maxes his first skill.


  ‘I need to be logical if I’m
 going to help out Mum and
                        Dad.’

‘Lore? I know we have our
differences, but I do still love
you, and we do still need one
                    more kid.’


...
‘I can’t believe I’m doing
                      this.’


‘Oh, shut up and kiss me
                   fool!’


 Well, at l...

 might help at all! There has

                      ‘ARF!’


 Yes, Rock’n’Pop is excited

‘Alice, why do my teachers
   always comment on how

                     ‘What?’


                 Yeah, what?

  important than...
Oi, emo, out of the house.


             ‘Oh, hello Alice.’

                    ‘Really?’

Daze Of Our Legacy. Chapter 5

  1. 1. Woo! Chapter Five baby...and still on Generation A. Well, that's what you get for hiring someone more used to writing 1000 page novels than diaries. What do you mean you didn't hire me? I'm still getting paid, right? What? Oh, you are so hearing from my lawyer. Anyways, on with the show?
  2. 2. ‘Daddy?’ ‘Rivers? Go away. I’m sleeping!’ ‘I had a bad dream. Can I sleep here?’ ‘Whatever.’ ‘Daddy? Where’s Mum?’ ‘How the hell should I know? Now let me sleep! I work all day and spend most of the evening in my lab. I’m tired!’ ‘Oh…okay.’ I sense that this is how the rest of the generation is set to continue.
  3. 3. ‘…and then you can strangle Rivers, like that, and since you have no chance of becoming heir ever, I will be crowned heiress by default. Okay, got that Oasis?’ ‘I strangle Rivers, you become heir?’ ‘Bingo.’ Cinderella, this family has enough issues without you trying to kill of Rivers as well. ‘A girl has to look out for her future.’ You’re three.
  4. 4. ‘Yes, well, all the more reason to get this sorted out. Who knows how long Mum and Dad will be around? I need to cement my heirhood now, before they spiral out of control and no one is paying any attention to the heir race anymore.’ For a toddler you have an awfully sharp mind. ‘I’m just practical. Now, Oasis, what is the plan?’ ‘Strangle Rivers, play with dolls?’ ‘Close enough.’
  5. 5. So, Cinderella, do you want to help Rivers and I sort out your parents or not? ‘Why not ask Oasis?’ No offence to the kid, but he’s a bit of a moron and a tool. ‘He is a clone of Rivers. What did you expect.’ That’s cold, Cinders. So, will you help? ‘Where’s the gain for me?’ It will endear you to the reader(s)? Maybe get you extra votes in the heir poll. ‘Sure, I guess I can help. Nothing better to do around here anyway.’
  6. 6. ‘MUMMY!’ ‘Oh, hey there Oliver.’ Oasis. ‘Yeah, Okapi.’ Teal, please tell me that you’re just pretending not to remember your son for poops and giggles. ‘Oh, it’s Rivers, right?’ I give up. Sorry Oasis, but it seems that being Cinderella’s lackey is all you have to look forward to in life.
  7. 7. Rivers? ‘Yes Alice.’ What happened to your brilliant plan to sort out your parents relationship? ‘Well, I’m taking a break to follow in your nautical footsteps, Alice.’ I guess a kid needs something to fall back on. ‘Alice, how come you don’t have a boat. Ephemeral Toast does.’ Well, darling, she is a very famous legacy writer, so she can afford it. ‘So, when you’re a famous legacy writer, you’ll get a boat too?’ Maybe I will.
  8. 8. ‘So…’ ‘So…’ ‘Gads this is stupid!’ ‘Rivers! Don’t be so rude.’ ‘Sorry Mum. But it is. You guys can’t even eat breakfast together anymore.’
  9. 9. ‘That’s a lie, and to prove my point I’m going to leave now and check on Cupid and Oscar.’ ‘You mean Cinderella and Oasis.’ ‘Whatever.’ ‘See, son. Women are from another planet entirely.’ ‘Dad…aren’t we the alien race here? Green skin and all.’ ‘Enough. Eat your pancakes.’
  10. 10. ‘Daddy, I don’t want you and Mummy to keep fighting. It upsets me and Oasis.’ ‘And Cinderella?’ ‘Well…Cinderella has thick skin. But that’s beside the point. It’s upsetting Alice too. She’s actually crying right now. Look.’ Shut up kid! It’s allergies. ‘Sure it is. Can’t you and Mum just work something out. I mean, you must have loved each other enough to get married, so why not now?’
  11. 11. ‘Well, Rivers, sometimes people change, and sometimes you think people change but it turns out that they are still the same slutty whores they were before.’ ‘This is hopeless!’ Not hopeless. Just difficult. Meet me in Lore’s lab once he’s gone to work, okay?
  12. 12. ‘Wow, this stuff is so COOL!’ Rivers, we’re here for a reason, remember. We’re looking for clues as to what your dad is doing in here. Whenever I try and spy on him, he shouts at me, and I do not respond well to anger. So I need you to do some snooping for me, okay? ‘Sure thing Alice.’
  13. 13. ‘Wow *giggle* That is so cool.’ What? ‘I can hear mum on the phone in the hallway. Alice, what’s the horizontal shoe shuffle?’ Urm…I’ll tell you on your next birthday, okay kid? ‘But I want to know!’ Back to work, kid. You’re not learning anything about your dad while spying on your mother.
  14. 14. Oi! Watch where you point that thing! ‘Alice, if I’m heir, can I have all this stuff when Dad dies?’ Rivers! ‘Fine, fine, don’t whine at me woman!’ I just want to figure this out. I hate the idea of my precious sims suffering. ‘You’re a big softie really, aren’t you?’ Yeah…but don’t tell anyone. I have a persona to affect. ‘Your secret is safe with me.’
  15. 15. ‘Well, apparently Dad’s been using this big doohicky a lot lately. I don’t like the readings I’m getting, Alice. There’s a lot of weird chemicals in here, as well as magic residue.’ The weird scanner gun told you all that? ‘Alice, please, my dad is a mechanical genius and my mother has managed to maintain a series of lovers without any of them finding out about the others. There’s little I cannot do.’ Wow.
  16. 16. Ummm…Rivers? Are you sure that you should be doing that? ‘Daddy wouldn’t own anything dangerous. I’m sure it’ll be fine. Now, just move the sieve over my head and click the buttons.’
  17. 17. ‘Hmm…’ What is it? ‘I suddenly love Dad. A lot. I want to spend the rest of my life with him and nobody else. I want to feel his hand running up my-’ Okay, get that off now! Quick, let’s get out of here. ‘Alice, I feel weird.’ Sweetums. It’ll probably wear off soon. ‘Good, because I don’t even think I can-’ Keep it bottled up kid. We’ll talk off camera.
  18. 18. ‘So, Cinderella, do you get it?’ ‘Sure. You’re contemplating incest with our father.’ ‘NO! That was just his brainwashing cap that he means to use on Mum. But do you understand, Cinderella. There’s probably all kinds of crap in there that could hurt Mum.’ Rivers, your dad loves your mum. I’m sure he wouldn’t hurt her. ‘Desperate people are not always the most logical.’ ‘Whatever. Rivers, what do you want me to do?’ ‘Dad’s locked up his lab. I guess he knew I was in there. You’re smart and conniving with a wicked edge. Maybe you can come up with something.’ ‘Well, maybe. I am kind of in the middle of something at the moment, but I should be able to come up with something.’
  19. 19. ‘How soon?’ ‘Well, I’ll be plotting your murder up until July, so I should have a plot by November.’ ‘NOVEMBER! Cinderella! We need it now!’ ‘I have a packed schedule. Sorry.’ ‘*pout* This sucks.’
  20. 20. ‘Guys? I have a plan.’ ‘…do you think you can help me break into Dad’s lab again.’ ‘Maybe Rivers. With the right tools.’ ‘GUYS! Come on! I have an idea that might work!’ ‘What is that annoying noise?’ ‘Oh, that’s just Oasis and his stupid Manchester accent. Ignore him. It’s best he assumes the role of spare early in life.’
  21. 21. ‘Alice?’ Yes Oasis. ‘I do have a plan. I drew it and everything. Lookit!’ That looks great, Oasis. ‘You’re not even looking! Alice, why does no one ever pay me any attention? I’m just as good as the other two.’ Sorry, Oasis, but I have more important things to do. Like watching Argos adverts and taunting my siblings.
  22. 22. Oh noes. Gregory has claimed his first victim. ‘GIVE ME THE CAKE YOU HO!!!’ Maybe she deserved it though. At least it was a random townie and not someone I actually care about.
  23. 23. ‘There’s a good boy Gregory.’ ‘Moo.’ ‘Yes, a very good boy. Kill lots of annoying townies for me.’ Lore? Why do you want dead townies?
  24. 24. ‘Cowplant milk has numerous uses. The most obvious is immortality, but it can be used for other things too.’ Like? ‘Sorry Alice, but that’s none of your business.’ Darn it.
  25. 25. ‘Yeah, that’s the good stuff. Remember Gregory, lots of townies.’ ‘Moo.’ Just don’t eat me! Okay? No eating the pretty dark haired lady with the overly sweet freckled mug.
  26. 26. ‘…just add the cowplant milk, and it’s almost done. Just a few months to mature, and we should be rolling.’ Holy mother of crap. ‘ALICE! GET OUT OF MY LAB AND STAY OUT!’ *flees* GUYS! I need help!
  27. 27. ‘Hey Alice, we heard you calling.’ Cinderella, I think Lore, your dad, may have gone a little bit insane. ‘Tell me something we I don’t know.’ ‘Alice! I-’ Oasis, please! This is important. I do not need to hear about your doodles right now. ‘Gah!’
  28. 28. ‘We can talk later, okay Alice. It’s dinnertime.’ ‘Cinders, share. Mummy only brought one bottle.’ ‘Get lost Oasis. No one cares if you starve! I’m actually important to this family. I’m involved in the plot, and all you do is follow me around and annoy everyone.’
  29. 29. ‘Ha ha ha! I win! Bottle is mine now Cinders. You loose.’ ‘What. Did. You. Say. To. Me?’ ‘*whimper* Here. Have it back.’ ‘Good choice.’ ‘I’ll go and wait on my blanket, see if I get a bottle too.’ ‘Good.’
  30. 30. ‘Daddy? You love me, right?’ ‘Of course Oasis. Between you and me, you’re my favourite. You’re so sweet and quiet and you never seem to get in my way, unlike the other two.’ ‘Oasis love Daddy too!’ ‘Good boy, now, can you walk for Daddy?’ ‘YAY!’ *yawn* Why do I still insist on being fair to this little guy by giving him screen time?
  31. 31. ‘Alice, I got you a boat. Rivers said that you didn’t have one.’ Well…thanks Oasis. I guess. ‘I’m going to help, you know. I’m not as stupid as everyone thinks.’ Huh? Oh, sorry kiddo, but sounds like Teal needs me.
  32. 32. ‘Why doesn’t this get easier?’ No idea. Just keep pushing while I try and think up a name.
  33. 33. It’s a little girl, same colouring as all the others, called Sweetness, after one of my favourite Jimmy Eat World songs. ‘Only one left.’ Indeed. ‘Then dating time.’ Oh…yes. Hooray.
  34. 34. Rivers maxes his first skill. ‘I need to be logical if I’m going to help out Mum and Dad.’ Good thinking Batman. ‘So, what’s our next course of action?’ If I’m honest, Rivers, I have no idea. This isn’t my line of expertise. I’m a Romance sim. Commitment is not a strong point of mine. ‘Well…I’m sure something will come along.’ I hope so.
  35. 35. ‘Lore? I know we have our differences, but I do still love you, and we do still need one more kid.’ ‘Teal? Are you really suggesting-’ ‘Come on! For Alice.’ ‘Fine. For Alice.’
  36. 36. ‘I can’t believe I’m doing this.’ ‘Oh, shut up and kiss me fool!’ Well, at least they’re not fighting.
  37. 37. ‘These books are all useless! I cannot find anything that might help at all! There has never been another documented case of this happening!’ Keep at it kid and I’ll ask around. There has to be something we can do short and tranquillizers and truth serum. ‘You can do that?’ Darling, I’m admiral of a universe. I can do whatever the heck I like. But I do believe in freewill, so we’ll just keep on this track.
  38. 38. ‘Alice?’ Lore? Are you going to scream at me again? Because I’m just on my way to check on the twins. ‘No. It’s just…well, I know what you and Rivers are doing, and I have to ask you to stop it. Before one of you gets hurt.’ Lore, what are you plotting? ‘Nothing, but there’s some stuff in that lab…it isn’t stable. So just keep out, okay.’ I’m not promising anything. I have to protect the family. ‘Then keep out of my lab!’
  39. 39. ‘Hey there Rivers. Listen, I heard Alice and your dad talking earlier. What’s going on with you lot? And what’s all this talk about a lab?’ ‘Oh…Mum…it’s just a game. You know, just mucking about. Dad takes it way too seriously.’ ‘Ah, he would. Well, that’s okay then. Later kid.’ Smart thinking Rivers. The last thing we need is her demanding an explanation from him. ‘I hate this.’ Me too.
  40. 40. ‘Oh, Sweetness, I hope you don’t have to go through what the other three have. It’s not fair. But Daddy’s going to make it all better, and then we’ll be a family and you’ll be the happiest little girl in the world. Yes you will.’ ‘Gah?’ ‘That’s right! Daddy is quite a catch, isn’t he?’ Gads!
  41. 41. On a less serious note, Mina just grew up into a rather attractive bitch.
  42. 42. And I get the right to breeding. ‘ARF!’ Yes, Rock’n’Pop is excited about the fact. Puppies were made and all is well in the land of the pets.
  43. 43. ‘Alice, why do my teachers always comment on how cute I am?’ Because that’s your most striking feature. Sure, you’re also some kind of genius, but you’re cute as a button, with the HUGE eyes and the freckles and the green skin. ‘Oh. Is that why she followed me home then?’ Who?
  44. 44. ‘Hello everyone! The fun has arrived!’ Mini-me. ‘I figured that Rivers could use some help. Plus, have you seen him! Wowzers!’ That’s nice of you dear.
  45. 45. ‘So, you’ll help me with my parents.’ ‘Sure thing! I love this kind of thing. Adventures and mysteries and stuff. If a dragon turns up…well, then I’ll be in nerd heaven!’ ‘What are you talking about?’ ‘I have no idea. I’m ten. I have the attention span of a bluebottle. So, shall we get to plotting?’ ‘Yeah…I guess.’
  46. 46. ‘BigAlice seems to think that there’s not a lot we can do until this plot resolves itself. It has to be allowed to run it’s course.’ ‘But, I don’t want my dad to brainwash Mum!’ ‘I know! That sucks. So, we’ll have to figure out something. There has to be someway to make your parents happy together again without resorting to brainwashing or any of the other weird things in your dad’s lab.’ ‘Well duh! I had figured out that much on my own!’ ‘If that’s how you feel I can always leave!’ ‘No, sorry sorry. I’ll be good.’
  47. 47. ‘He’s almost as bad as Teal. A new girl here everyday.’ Oh, Lore, leave the kid alone. Most of my friends have been boys, ever since I was little. ‘And look how you turned out.’ I’ll pretend not to have heard that. It’s good for him to learn that women can be valuable friends, not just objects for woo hoo, early in life. ‘Crap.’ Fine! I think him being a mini- Casanova is really cute. Whatever! ‘No morals at all.’ I thought we were over this “morals” crap. ‘Humph! I’m going to my lab.’ Secret lab. ‘Oh yeah. I always forget the secret bit.’ That much is obvious. The whole
  48. 48. ‘Hey, hey Alice! Look at this!’ ‘That’s great, Rivers, but how is this helping with getting your parents to stop fighting/brainwashing each other?’ ‘Even genius’s need a break sometimes!’ They sure do.
  49. 49. Time for one of the most annoying, tedious things since violin recitals (yes, I used to play violin. I was pretty darn good, but I’ve forgotten most of it now, and can only play Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and Pachebel’s Canon.). It’s a TRIPLE birthday. The twins and Sweetness. So, post makeover pictures, as ever?
  50. 50. And we have a winner. Sorry Cinderella, but you have been outdone on the cuteness scale. Sweetness is just so cute and pretty and sweet, and is the first kid so far to inherit Teal’s elfie ears. ‘Alice, you shouldn’t compare us. We’re siblings and are meant to unconditionally love each other. Forcing conflict is both cruel and unethical. Both Cinderella and I have flaws as well as our good points.’ That little speech earns you a lifetime of hanging out with Oasis.
  51. 51. ‘So, aren’t I great and awesome?’ ‘Cinderella, we have more pressing matters at the moment.’ ‘Take that back! Nothing is more pressing than my beauty.’ ‘Awww, come on! Family crisis needs to be averted. No one cares about your hair and pretty dress.’
  52. 52. ‘You’re right.’ ‘What?’ Yeah, what? ‘Mum and Dad are more important than me and my dress and good looks and charm and brilliance.’ Don’t forget modesty. ‘So, what’s the plan, oh brother of mine?’ Creepy, but that is Cinderella. ‘I was just joking, you know. Nothing is more important than me!’
  53. 53. Oi, emo, out of the house. ‘Oh, hello Alice.’ Oasis? ‘Yes, it is me.’ And the clothes, hair and… eyeliner? ‘Everyone ignores me, so I decided to show my frustrations in a more physical way so that maybe my emotions would be read and perhaps my family would try and comfort me. I’m not the moron you make me out to be Alice, and it hurts that you’re trying to stop people wanting me as heir so early in my life. But what hurts the most is that I have a plan about Dad that might work and you never even-’ Yeah, yeah. You’re an emo. I get it. Can I go now? ‘If you must.’
  54. 54. Okay, just to be fair, here is Oasis looking darn adorable. ‘Its poison in here, not bubbles.’ That nice dear. Now back to the interesting siblings.
  55. 55. ‘What do you think our next course of action should be? Breaking into Dad’s lab and planting cameras and microphones so we can spy on him?’ ‘Rivers, can we ever do that?’ ‘If Alice can rig camera’s in every shower in Meridian, we can spy on Dad.’ FYI, Meridian is the name of the neighbourhood. I thought it sounded spiffy. ‘I don’t think we’re going to be able to do that, Rivers. Let’s keep this realistic.’ ‘Damn it! There goes my time machine idea!’
  56. 56. ‘Maybe we should ask Oasis and Sweetness to help.’ ‘Those idiots? Oasis barely has two brain cells to rub together, and Sweetness lives up to her name in every sense. She’s to darn nice to help with something that could potentially have devastating effects.’ ‘What? No one mentioned devastating effects.’ ‘Grow up, Rivers. This is war!’ Say what now? Cinderella has blown a fuse!
  57. 57. ‘Lore, do you find it weird that the kids keep following us around, whispering to each other?’ ‘I find it weird that you expect a civil answer from me, your cheating hussy!’ ‘*sigh* This is why it is so hard for me to love you!’ You may want to keep the arguing down. I spy at least two kids hiding behind the sofa with binoculars, notebooks and camping gear.
  58. 58. ‘Owasis!! Kiss Sweetness.’ ‘Really?’ ‘Yes. Now please!’ ‘Oh…okay. No one’s ever asked me to kiss them before.’ ‘Owasis sweet, like Sweetness. He need lots of hugs and kisses to make him big and stwong!’ ‘I guess you’re right. This is nice.’ ‘Love Owasis!’ ‘Love Sweetness.’
  59. 59. ‘You good bwother. Rivers and Cinders mean to me. They say I’m too sweet and small to help with Mummy and Daddy. I’m not too small!’ ‘So…you want to help with my plan? It’s a good one.’ ‘YAY!’
  60. 60. ‘…and then we go in here, and presto! Everything’s back to normal and we’re a happy family again!’ ‘That’s really good, Owasis. Why no one else listen to you?’ ‘They think that my thick Manchester accent means I’m an idiot, but I’m not! Not at all.’ ‘Well, this plan is super! It’s going to work and then everyone will love Sweetness and Owasis!’ ‘YAY!’
  61. 61. ‘Alice! Snow! Lookit!’ Teal, you’re a grown mother of four. ‘But…snow!’ *sigh* Are you ever going to take this all seriously? ‘If I did then I wouldn’t be me, would I?’ Guess not.
  62. 62. RUN CINDERELLA! ‘Ahhh! Ghost! She sooooooo does not match the walls! That shade of green is so tacky and disgusting.’ Wrong thing to worry about Cinders.
  63. 63. ‘Sleep tight little Sweetness. Sweet dreams.’ ‘Love Mummy.’ ‘Love Sweetness.’ ‘Play tomorrow, yes? Play and hug and has fun, yes?’ ‘Sure thing little girl. You’re just too cute to say no too.’ ‘Perfect.’
  64. 64. ‘Oh, Alice! Why?’ Well, I only get one generation per theme, so I gotta make it worth it. But, luckily, since Mina is also preggers, you are having only one kid, and it’s your last. Enjoy it. After this, no more bambinos. Ever. ‘Oh. YAY! *does dance*’ Oh yeah. Romance sim.
  65. 65. ‘Daddy! You love Sweetness, yes?’ ‘Of course my little green angel.’ ‘Do anything for her?’ ‘Sure.’ ‘And for Owasis?’ ‘Of course my little one. I love you all so much.’ ‘That’s what I wanted to hear. I has to go now Daddy. Playtime with Owasis.’ ‘Okay. Have fun.’ And with that cute and yet somewhat bizarre conversation, we leave off for this entry. Come back next time for the last of the Alternative Rock babies, Mina’s puppy and more insane plotting from all sides of the household. Laters.
