Forever flowing 3.2

  1. 1. Forever Flowing: The Azure Legacy Ch. 3.2<br />As Forever Flowing as the Blue Sky<br />
  2. 2. This legacy is loosely based off of Native Americans and traditions. Native American names usually linked to the tribe of that generation. This generation is Blackfoot Indians. Only females can inherit, everyone should have hobby enthusiasm in “Nature” “Music and Dance”, and “Arts and Crafts”, basically we have a lot of creative folks here. (other hobbies are acceptable too these just are the most important). Names will all be related to the tribe for that generation in some way. Or nature related names if I run out.<br />To refresh your memory if need be I suggest reading previous chapters.<br />
  3. 3. I just would like to apologize to my readers who I kept waiting. I had a lot of Real life stuff going on and have been pretty busy. Still do, but I figured it had been too long since K had a chapter out :D<br />ENJOY!<br />
  4. 4. Ani-Mei motioned to Solan to follow her as the two of them sat on the couch in the entertainment room. Solan was here probably as an adult escort for Koko’s teenagers. Since in the sim world or even through the sim portals teenagers, children and especially toddlers need an escort. What was Solan going to do while here though? The twins were going to see their mom. Ani-Mei wanted to know his plans.<br />
  5. 5. Next to each other they talked on the couch.<br />“How was the ride on in?” Ani-Mei asked Solan.<br />“Not too bad, a bit on the bumpy side. The entrance to this world is quite colorful.” Solan said remembering how it felt to be teleported.<br />
  6. 6. “That’s alright then. But now that you’re here what do you plan on doing?” <br />Ani-Mei was quite curious about this she was happy that Solan brought Koko’s twins with him to this ‘verse . Soon enough Bliss and Euphoria would meet their mother here. Although it wouldn’t be until after Koko graduated college. Bliss and Euphoria would stay here in the “Ageless Zone” until it is time for them to see her. Solan’s only mission was to bring them here, he was now free to do whatever he wanted to.<br />
  7. 7. “Well I have always been curious about how other places are, the land the culture. I guess once I’m settled in a bit I’m thinking of doing some travelling around here.”<br />Ani-Mei nodded at Solan agreeing that it would be a good idea for him to see outside of Hidden City. She felt that it would be something he would enjoy. Ani-Mei cared about Solan for he was part of the ‘verse she was also from. She wanted him to be happy during his time here.<br />
  8. 8. “Well if you will settle here I should give you a guidebook to Lenmana. First thing’s first, Lenmanan culture is matrilineal, they have a great respect for the women being the life-bringers. Daughters are ones to carry on the line here, but that doesn’t mean sons are any less accepted. Secondly, nature has a great importance to the Lenmana Natives. Thirdly, Lenmanans love parties with Bonfires and lots of dancing.”<br />Ani-Mei continued on telling Solan about Lenmanan culture and he hung on every word. Solan wanted to be respectful of this new land’s culture and with Ani-Mei giving him this verbal guidebook, he knew what he was getting himself into, he was pretty excited. <br />
  9. 9. “Those are just some things you have to remember about being here Solan. It’s a new place and a new culture, much different than Hidden City.” Ani-Mei finished up telling him about Lenmana’s Culture.<br />She stood up to let Solan think of a plan for the rest of his time here. <br />
  10. 10. Solan sat there for a moment after Ani-Mei left and thought about everything she had told him. It didn’t seem too complicated, yes it was much different than Hidden City but he really wanted to learn about other places being as sheltered as he was back in his home ‘verse.<br />*-------*<br />
  11. 11. While Ani-mei was looking into Solan’s future a certain group of Lenmanan teenagers were deciding what to do with there’s. The kids were all sitting in the living room of the Hunicke house talking about what they wanted to do before the next three headed off to university.<br />
  12. 12. “Fall is coming up quickly and me, Crow and Sinopa are heading off to college to be with Koko and Sika. But I kinda want to head out to the new club on the other side of town. Who wants to come with?” Rozene asked one day while the seven of them sat in the middle of the Hunicke’s living room.<br />“Dude I am so in!” Ohanko replied almost immediately.<br />
  13. 13. After telling their parents where they would be the seven of them decided to head up to the club on the other side of Lenmana Island. It was called DeeJay’s and it was actually a combination of : a bar, a club, a lounge and a restaurant that served bar food. It was basically one big hangout for people.<br />

  25. 25. *CD scratch*<br />A strange man put an arm around Adoette who had been having a drink at the bar. Jacy could smell the alcohol on his breath. And she noticed her shy cousin tense up.<br />“Oh hey babycakes why don’t we have a little fun” He said lecherously .<br />Adoette gasped as she waited for him to move.<br />
  26. 26. “Hey old crusty” Jacy stood up angrily.<br />“What is it sweetcheeks?” The guy said in the same tone he used with Adoette.<br />Jacy took her drink and splashed it in the guy’s face. The guy cried in pain as the drink had been heated by Jacy’s power and boiled so when it hit his face it burnt.<br />“Don’t you dare use that tone of voice with my cousin, or me scumbag. Or any girl for that matter. ” <br />
  27. 27. Its that 808 bump, make you put yo hands up Make you put yo hands up, put putyo, put yo hands up (You can't Touch this) <br />

  32. 32. The night was dying down so was the teens time at the club. They had danced drank and had fun even sang and played instruments. The night at the club was starting to take its toll on the teens as three of them ran to the bathrooms, closely followed by the other four.<br />“Adoette, Sinopa are you two Ok in there?” Jacy asked concerned as she listened to her cousins retching .<br />
  33. 33. Rozene on the other hand was examining herself in the mirror checking out her body and fixing her hair. She was kind of wishing that guy earlier was hitting on her she was much prettier and flirtier than her shy younger sister<br />“Are you serious Jacy? OK I’m pretty sure their not ok.”<br />“It’s a generic question Rozie.” Jacy replied sharply.<br />
  34. 34. Meanwhile back in the boy’s bathroom it was Dyami who was puking his guts out. Crowfoot went to the sink to grab a drink of water while Ohanko waited outside the stall his twin brother was in with a smirk on his face. Once Dyami exited Ohanko grabbed him in a noogie.<br />“What my little brother can’t handle his drinks” <br />“Ohanko come on get off of me. I think I’m gonna puke again.” Dyami fought back.<br />“Jeez sometimes I wonder if you’re really a guy. Not very manly are ya.” Ohanko teased.<br />“I’ll assure you I’m a guy, now let me go!” <br />
  35. 35. “Come on Ohanko leave him alone!” Crowfoot said to his younger cousin.<br />Ohanko let his twin go as he ran back into the stall to puke again.<br />“Come on I was just having some fun it’s what brothers do” Ohanko said in defense.<br />“Well I wouldn’t know from experience, but I’m pretty sure brothers also let go when asked” Crowfoot replied in a slight scolding way.<br />“Ok whatever I’m feeling fine so I’m waiting outside” Ohanko said as he headed for the door but not before calling back to his twin. “Have fun in there not so manly man”<br />“Shut –up” Dyami grunted through retches.<br />
  36. 36. The boys made their way out to the lounge area near the bathrooms. Music still blaring people dancing getting drunk and attempting to sing. The pounding of the speakers beyond the wall made Dyami groan still feeling quite queasy. <br />
  37. 37. It wasn’t long before the girls joined the boys in the hallway. Adoette hung on to the wall on her way out of the bathroom slowly following her sisters and cousins. She let go of the wall and collapsed on the floor nest to where her brother was on the couch. Sinopa did similarly except she slouched against the end table which moved behind her causing her to lose balance.<br />“What do you think we should do now?” Rozene asked uncertainly.<br />
  38. 38. “How about we just go home.” Dyami suggested crankily. He was tired he wasn’t feeling good and he wanted to get rid of his pounding headache.<br />“Yeah maybe that would be best I mean Crow, Rozie and Sinopa are heading to University tomorrow.” Jacy agreed with her cousin. “I’m going to see if they can call us a cab or something.”<br />
  39. 39. Jacy went over to one of the ladies who worked there and wondered if she could get a cab for seven. Or two cabs whatever they were able to get first. The manager called them up a cab.<br />
  40. 40. The teens stumbled out the door each feeling what the night’s effect had on them. They were glad to have such a large taxi since none of them were sure how they would make it back. They decided just to crash at the Azure house hoping that Pocahontas and Joel wouldn’t mind having their nieces and nephews sleepover. Which usually wasn’t much of a problem although no one was thinking quite straight at the current moment.<br />*-------*<br />
  41. 41. Pocahontas and Joel watched as their son, daughter as well as nieces and nephews appeared in the Azure family living room. They could smell the juice coming from the teens as the two of them tried not to be too angry at them. They did know where they were going to be that night. Joel went over to shut off the light and just let them sleep where the teens had collapsed…<br />
  42. 42. …all over the place.<br />
  43. 43. Pocahontas called over to the Hunicke house to inform her brother and Danielle that the kids would stay here for the night. She really didn’t want either of them to worry about where their children had ended up. Well Powhatan and Danielle weren’t really huge worrywarts. A trait that Pocahontas had since she was a child.<br />*-------*<br />
  44. 44. The next day the kids arrived safely at the dorms. After a quick change of clothing they were welcomed by their older sisters.<br />“How was the ride in?” Siksika asked her brother and cousins.<br />“Oh just great but either we are jetlagged or still hung over” Rozene replied.<br />“Possibly both” Crowfoot groaned.<br />Siksika and Koko couldn’t help but laugh at their younger siblings as they too remembered exactly what they did before leaving for university.<br />*-------*<br />
  45. 45. As the semester rolled on Siksika started her training with Kitchi-Keme. She kept having minor trust issues with the guy who was the son of the woman who tortured her years ago. Maybe she still had a grudge or maybe it was still a result of Post Traumatic Stress. Any time he was in the room with her she had mixed feelings.<br />
  46. 46. Koko continued to hide in her room being no more studious then they had grown used to. She had always been on the shy side and when it came to her studies she would coop herself up in her room for days, sometimes even without sleep, until she finished up a paper or studying or homework. Whatever the professors threw at her she would sit there and get it done.<br />
  47. 47. The three new freshmen started to get used to college life while still working with their own interests. Crowfoot hopped right on the telescope any time it was free. Rozene showed her romance sim side by flirting with any guy that she saw and Sinopa tried to make some new friends or search for a spouse.<br />*-------*<br />
  48. 48. “What does meditation have to do with any of this” Sika opened an eye and looked over at KitchiKeme.<br />“It helps you with you’re inner self and to access the part of your brain you need to reactivate you’re powers”<br />Meditation had become a new development in Kitchi-Keme’s training process. Siksika hadn’t really meditated much, if at all, before. She was too playful and overly energetic to actually relax for such a long period of time to even think about doing this.<br />
  49. 49. Kitchi was silent as he meditated with Sika but he wasn’t just helping her he would be helping himself once the premonitions return to her. Part of his plan was to use the young woman’s powers for his own gain he wasn’t just training her for future premonitions, there was also past and present visions. In the way of Clairvoyance. What most didn’t know was the fact that he had also been trained from the time he was a toddler in forms of magic much like what his mother had done. He had observed his mother train her own powers as well.<br />“One step closer” Kitchi thought deviously.<br />
  50. 50. The training sessions tended to drag on for hours at a time but Suni’s son really knew his stuff. Siksika wondered why and how he knew so much about her psychic powers and how to get that part of her brain functioning again from Suni’s blocker. Suni didn’t seem the type of person who would tell anything about this kind of stuff her spells or anything. Siksika shot a glance at Kitchi once again.<br />“Focus Siksika” Kitchi said without opening his eyes.<br />*-------*<br />
  51. 51. Now that Koko and Sika were Sophomores they were eligible to join the family Greek house. Where Zachary Norwood was waiting for the new arrivals. Zach was a former Llama mascot who Oliver got to be the placeholder of Luyu Angeni. Siksika had dated him before so she could get in easier but Koko hadn’t known him that well.<br />
  52. 52. It didn’t take the two long after Siksika introduced them they seemed hit it off pretty well. Siksika had a strange feeling that just somehow these two would be great for each other. Soon enough her feelings were correct and the two started dating. <br />
  53. 53. Was Kitchi-Keme’s training actually working? Were Siksika ‘s premonitions starting up again as they were back as a teenager? Or was this all just a coincidence, Siksika wasn’t completely sure. Her visions usually started off as feelings, she knew Jacy-Nova was a girl just by a feeling when she was a child.<br />
  54. 54. Before long Siksika was kidnapped from the Greek house and found herself in front of a large mansion. She looked around and noticed quite a few familiar faces as they cheered her on and gave her the Secret Society Llama Jacket. The familiar faces actually were those of a few guys she had went on a date with between Freshman and Sophomore years.<br />
  55. 55. Siksika decided to stay a bit as she explored the Secret society. There were a lot of different items that she had rarely seen before she noticed a lie detector, a counterfeit machine as well as other pretty cool things that she explored. That cowplant in the front yard was quite intriguing, or maybe it was just the combination of a cow and a plant that caught her attention.<br />
  56. 56. Before she knew it Siksika wondered into a dark room that was on the second story and the far part of the house. Inside was a phone on a table with sculls and crossbones on it. She wasn’t completely sure what it was at first but a closer look at it gave some indication. Especially when she noticed some words had been engraved in a fancy way on the stand.<br />“Had a recent death that you need to fix? Call Grim Reaper”<br />
  57. 57. Suddenly something overcame her that she hadn’t felt in a long time. It was a tingling feeling as her concentration slipped and all she could see are flashes of a fire and someone burning in it. Sika couldn’t make out who completely as the hair and clothing blended into the background of the vision. There was going to be a fire and someone was going to die, Sika felt uneasy.<br />*-------*<br />
  58. 58. Siksika returned to the Greek House but not without the thoughts running through her head about the vision she had back in the Secret society house. She wished she knew how everything would occur so maybe she can save that person. She looked around as the planned toga party would be starting as she tried to push the thoughts from her head.<br />
  59. 59. Everyone arrived as snow appeared on the ground Siksika noticed her friends and cousins all toga clad. Well most of it apparently Crowfoot couldn't get a sheet to use so he came in his Pajama pants. No one really seemed to mind the shirtless Crowfoot, well unless one was related to the young man. Siksika herded everyone inside to keep them from freezing. <br />
  60. 60. The Greek house was full of Toga clad individuals doing what they do best at parties dancing, drinking juice and socializing. The party lasted all night and before they knew it, it was time for everyone to head home. Siksika being a Pleasure sim loved throwing Toga parties, It was just so much fun seeing everyone dressed in bedsheets and having fun.<br />
  61. 61. After the party ended, Koko had rolled a want for something else to spend her time on. It was actually a suggestion from her cousin and boyfriend to get out of her bedroom more often. They got a train set which Koko spent time on as well as socializing with those who decided to help her out. Since she never socialized much during the parties being kind of shy. She would mumble things under her breath about having a great need to study, of course said in her own intelligent way.<br />
  62. 62. All of a sudden the train set caught fire. And Sika’s thoughts returned to her about the vision she had about someone dying, the person in the vision was Koko and where were the firefighters? They has installed a fire alarm inside the house but no one had come. Siksika had to do something she didn’t want to lose her cousin and best friend.<br />
  63. 63. From beyond the fire the cow mascot and a cheerleader were still left in the house. They all started to freak out at once. They were always such a big help around these parts. (sarcasm)<br />Siksika and Zach grabbed the fire extinguishers from the bottom and top floor of the Greek house as the coughed and jumped into trying to save Koko from a horrible death. <br />
  64. 64. There was a whooshing sound in the air. As the Grim Reaper made himself known within the room. Time ticked by so slowly as Grim saw the burnt form of Koko on the ground. Grim looked at the young adult’s body and sighed. Pulling out the cell phone, he contacted the Wanagi worlds.<br />“She’s a little on the young side…Are you sure… oh fine”<br />
  65. 65. As everyone watched the urn appear before them Siksika took one look at Zach and decided maybe it was best that everyone left. Zach wasn’t the only one affected, Sika was too. It was yet another person she was close to died. It may have not been from Suni’s hands this time but Koko still died and Sika was there, why didn’t Grim allow her to beg for her cousin’s life?* Siksika always would have done so for family.<br />*The option never came up for me… both Sika <br />and Zach were close enough to Koko to do it too.<br />
  66. 66. The young woman locked the door as the last of the visitors left. Her sad blue eyes turned to Zach wh0 just moments after everyone left went into aspiration failure. He held the floursack baby in his arms as he started to babble and rock it back and forth. One of his greatest fears was Koko dying, something that had happened just moments ago.<br />
  67. 67. “I can’t… believe… she is gone…” Zach sobbed.<br />Siksika put a comforting arm around Zach’s shoulders. She could feel his pain he not only lost his girlfriend also because it was for her cousin and best friend. No words needed to be said, sometimes an action spoke louder than any words would have.<br />
  68. 68. After some time Zach had calmed down enough to look down at Koko’s urn. There it was he had to at least keep that safe and prevent others from breaking it. He needed hope that Koko would be back. The young man squatted down to look at it he picked it up and held onto it.<br />
  69. 69. “Zach I have an idea.” Siksika started she closed her eyes.<br />She wasn’t supposed to tell anyone about SS but she felt the need to tell Zach. Because both of them lost someone they were close to she had to do something.<br />“Wh-what?” Zach choked up once again.<br />
  70. 70. “I am not supposed to reveal this to anyone but this is a special case. Listen carefully and closely to what I am about to tell you. I need you to get into the Secret Society.” <br />*-------*<br />
  71. 71. Back on Lenmana island. Joel and Jacy were having a father/daughter moment as he helped her practice for the big game against Mary Jane* High’s rival high school Island High. Jacy-Nova was very nervous about them since last time they had a game together. Jacy had gotten angry with a girl on the other team causing a fire to break out. The girl had taunted her to that point.<br />*Mary-Janewas actually my grandmother’s name. <br />I was close to her so I decided to name the <br />high school in her memory. She used to teach.<br />
  72. 72. Jacy had learned to control her temper and fire abilities better since then but some things the other girl said caused the teenager to feel a bit insecure about her shooting. It was the night before the big game. Jacy decided to ask her father for help with extra practice after dinner that night. Joel was always willing to help his daughter with practicing.<br />
  73. 73. Jacy went to shoot but missed for what seemed like the tenth time since they started. The teenager was disappointed. Why couldn’t she just score? She had done so well before the game the fire broke out.<br />“Dad I don’t know what’s going on? I can’t seem to shoot like I used to since that last game against Island High.” Jacy-Nova said sadly.<br />“Hmmm….”<br />“What is it dad?”<br />
  74. 74. When the ball bounced back from the net Joel picked it up and went to the other side of the court. He looked at the ball in his hands. Jacy watched her father’s stance as he let the ball go it flew through the air and swooped into the net. The teenager’s eyes widened watching him.<br />“You are too tense Firefly, you have to relax.”<br />“But dad! The game, the other team..”<br />“Don’t let one girl on the other team get to you.” Joel said with a smile to his daughter. “Here your turn, try to relax” He handed the ball to Jacy.<br />
  75. 75. Jacy held the ball in her hand as she felt the bumps along the orange surface. She looked at the net in front of the house of which they had been practicing. She tried her hardest to calm herself down and concentrate like her father had told her. She took a deep breath and released the ball from her hands. She watched it go toward the net and, after bouncing off the rim, went in.<br />
  76. 76. The father and daughter cheered. Jacy just hoped that she would still be able to score at the game tomorrow. Joel pulled his daughter to the side as the ball bounced to the side of the Porch.<br />“See. You can do it Firefly! I know you can!” Joel started. “Just try to concentrate and if that girl taunts you again, don’t take anything she says personally. She’s only doing it so you would mess up.” He explained to Jacy. “But you could also try saying something else back to her to catch her off guard.” The father said with a wink.<br />“Thanks dad” Jacy hugged her father then went to retrieve the ball to put it back in the garage.<br />
  77. 77. It was the day of the big game Saturday afternoon. Jacy-Nova Azure sat on her team’s bench hoping that she wouldn’t make a fool out of herself or there will be another fire incident. Jacy wasn’t exactly a sore loser but she hated losing, as most people do. The thing with her was when she lost somehow mysterious fires broke out. Of course Jacy and her family members knew that the fires weren’t all that mysterious.<br />
  78. 78. Five players on each team made their way to the court and the game was ready to start. Mary Jane High’s colors were green and yellow, while Island High’s colors were blue and red. The buzzer sounded and the game had started.<br />
  79. 79. Island high was the first to score just seconds after the game had started. MJH girls had to step it up a notch if they were going to beat this team. It was the last game of the school year they couldn’t let Island High win. <br />
  80. 80. Then Jacy was said to cover the girl who had talked her down the last game. Ayesha was a really good player she was actually the star player of Island High’s girl’s Varsity basketball team. She had been playing since she was five years old. Her pro basketball player father had gotten her into it. How did Jacy know all of this? Well actually her and Ayesha were both in Elementary School together. She used to brag a lot about her “natural” talent for basketball and Jacy didn’t like her too much back then either. But Jacy pushed all of that behind her to cover the taller girl.<br />“No excuse this time to get out of this game Azure, Island high will win.” <br />“Well stop your bragging Khoury and prove it!” Jacy replied with a fire in her words.<br />
  81. 81. Pocahontas and Danielle looked on from the back row. The two women had gotten pregnant a little late in their adult lives but were sure that these babies would be their last. Danielle was very relieved when she discovered that it wasn’t multiples for her that time. They watched their daughter and niece as she played the game. They cheered her on as she stole the ball from the other player.<br />
  82. 82. The game continued on quarter after quarter Island and MJH were neck and neck with the score. Both teams were the two best high school girls varsity basketball teams on Lenmana, the Mainland and the other places surrounding them.<br />
  83. 83. Joel sat on the bench next to Powhatan as he cheered Jacy on as the clock started to wind down to the end of the game. Both teams were tied and Jacy-Nova Azure had the ball in her hands and was ready to shoot.<br />“You can do it Firefly!” Joel Cheered.<br />
  84. 84. “Firefly, what a stupid nickname” Ayesha said with a smirk. “I can’t believe you don’t get mad at him for using it in public places. Why would he nickname you after some bug anyway?”<br />Jacy was listening to the girl but like her father had suggested, she didn’t let it get to her. She looked at the ball in her hands and concentrated on the net.<br />“You’re just mad that you aren’t as close to your dad as I am to mine.” Jacy smirked.<br />
  85. 85. Jacy released the ball from her hands as it flew toward the net. Time ticked by as the last seconds of the game turned to single digits. It seemed in slow motion as the ball bounced off the backboard. Jacy crossed her fingers.<br />“Please Mother Goddess” Jacy closed her eyes for a moment.<br />She heard the ball whoosh into the net. Before the end of game buzzer sounded. She had done it! <br />
  86. 86. The audience went wild. Jacy’s teammates cheered for her. She had actually won the game for them. An experience that she had wanted to feel since she first time she played basketball. The feeling was empowering for Jacy. She could feel sparks coming from her fingers but controlled it. <br />
  87. 87. The two teams lined up as Island High congratulated MJH on their win. MJH were good sports and congratulated Island on playing such a good and challenging game.<br />
  88. 88. Pocahontas went up to her daughter as she wrapped her arms around Jacy and gave her a hug. Although her pregnant belly made it a little hard to get to close. <br />“You did a great job today Jacy-Nova. I’m so proud of you!” Pocahontas said happily.<br />“Thanks mom”<br />*-------*<br />
  89. 89. While a celebration was had for Jacy’s team winning the biggest game of the year the dorms had some more stuff going on. The freshmen Crow, Rozie and Sinopa had been working hard as they spent their freshman year in the dorm.<br />
  90. 90. Of course when it came to sweet little Sinopa she had discovered that she really liked a shy boy named Felix in her dorm. The two of them had found themselves studying together as time went on. Sinopa gathered some courage one day and went to talk to him.<br />
  91. 91. Toward the end of Freshman year Sinopa and Felix decided they wanted to get to know each other a little more. So they went on a date and later resulted in them dancing in the darkness while the others slept.<br />
  92. 92. From then on the two of them were always seen with each other when they weren’t in classes or doing classwork. Sinopa introduced him to days of cloud-watching.<br />“That one looks like a rabbit” She pointed out.<br />“I see and that one looks like a dog.”<br />“Wow you are getting good at this”<br />“All thanks to you”<br />
  93. 93. While Sinopa had been all sweet and stalkery with Felix. Her twin sister was making rounds in different ways. She hadn’t been too interested in dating but she had become one of the biggest flirts on campus.<br />
  94. 94. Rosie wasn’t as big on having a long term relationship as her sister was. She preferred being free to flirt hug and kiss whoever she wanted. Maybe one of these days woohoo would follow, hopefully when she was finally able to join the Greek house, FULL SIZED BEDS! The old creaky dorm twin beds weren’t even big enough for much. Although she was a romance sim. Rozene’s secondary aspiration started to kick in. She was also a fortune sim and kept wanting to sell masterpieces.<br />
  95. 95. That still left her time to do other things, she absolutely loved dancing and hanging with her twin sister. Rozene and Sinopa were still quite close after all these years. They enjoyed hanging out with each other but balanced that out to hanging out with others as well.<br />
  96. 96. While his cousins were busy doing their own things Crowfoot was doing his. Among the homework, term papers and research the young man had always returned to his first love; the telescope. He had spent time on it, at night, so he could listen to the stories of the aliens like he always had, but also discovered that it was fun spying on people during the day.<br />
  97. 97. Of course his spying always seemed to have such disastrous results*. Crowfoot didn’t even know he could use his telescope to see all the way over to this guy’s place. Considering the young man wasn’t even interested in spying there.<br />“What you think you doing punk?”<br />“Well actually I was trying to see if I can discover an easier way to contact the aliens during the day.” Crowfoot answered trying to sound innocent.<br />*Like this guy who’s name completely slips my mind.<br />
  98. 98. “Aliens don’t exist. I thought college was supposed to make ya smarter.”<br />“You DID NOT just insult the aliens! I KNOW they exist I have seen them. How do you think I got my Extraterrestrial Reparation Grant”<br />“You poor kids always looking for money!”<br />“Well I am not poor and you better not insult the aliens again! They have feelings you know!”<br />“Whatever dude”<br />And with that last line the guy walked off of the dorm lot and crowfoot went back to studying. The young man mumbled hoping that guy would get abducted himself and see that the aliens were not to be messed with.<br />*-------*<br />
  99. 99. After making some friends with a few people Zach was finally inducted into the SS. The young man was curious to why there were so many people here on the secret society lot. Maybe it wasn’t so secret anyway. He looked up curiously at the building in front of him.  This was part of Sika’s plan; they just needed a time when no one else was here to resurrect Zach’s beloved.<br />*(BTW anyone have any tips on fixing the <br />overabundance of SS peeps? Please tell me). I <br />Did NOT use deletaallsims in this hood)<br />
  100. 100. After Zach had been inducted the two of them continued their research on the strange phone that Sika had found back at the Secret society. Zach has seen the room as well but only for a brief moment. They had researched for a few days now with not too much information on the strange phone. There were sites about it but the college had seemed to block them; until the two of them worked together to hack into a government site.<br />
  101. 101. “Resurrect-O-Nomitron: No need to mourn the passing of your loved ones. Not only is this telephone a classy accessory to add to any stylish realm, but it also provides a direct line to the Grim Reaper. For nary the price of your soul, Mr Reaper will gladly bring anyone back from the beyond. But beware: if you don't offer a competitive price, your resurrected loved one may be ... incomplete.”  <br />Zach read off of the page on the internet. This was the first time the two of them had found any information on the Reaper’s phone. It was this strange site called Sims Wiki. It even gave more information on their world. Siksika and Zach only wanted the information on that one item... for now. <br />
  102. 102. Sika listened to the description. She was excited that their SS hacking skills were able to get into a government website that was testing the strange phone they had encountered back at the Secret Society lot. That’s when the phone rang. Siksika jumped up from her seat and went to answer it. She already knew it was her grandmother calling with some news.<br />“Hey grandma!” Siksika said trying to sound excited.<br />
  103. 103. “Hello Siksika, are you alright?”<br />“Oh yes grandma just researching.” Siksika replied. <br />“So you are working hard then?” <br />“Of course”<br />The Azures and Hunickes had been really busy lately with the moving to new houses and the new babies arriving .The families had been on their toes, Aiyana called her granddaughter in college to tell her that there were two new arrivals in the family.<br />
  104. 104. “Well I called you for a few reasons and to see how you are doing was one of them. I also wanted to tell you that you have a new cousin and new sister. Danielle and Powhatan welcomed a baby boy he has red hair and blue eyes. They named him Katoyis* or Kato for short.” Aiyana told her. <br />* Katoyis(Kah-toh-yiss) Is the Blackfoot Indian name for “Blood-clot boy”. <br />A mythical Blackfoot hero who has many adventures slaying Monsters <br />and Wicked People.<br />Information from: <br />
  105. 105. “And my sister?” Sika asked.<br />“She’s doing just wonderfully, red hair and brown eyes much like your brother. Your parents named her Elouise* or Ellie for short.”<br />*Named for ElouisePepionCobella member of the Blackfeet Indian Tribe of Montana and a great-granddaughter of Mountain Chief, one of the legendary Blackfeet leaders of the West. She is a banker and rancher, a Native American leader, and lead plaintiff in the groundbreaking litigation Cobell v. Kempthorne, which challenged the United States' mismanagement of trust funds belonging to more than 500,000 individual Native Americans. As Treasurer of the Blackfeet Tribe of Montana, she established the Blackfeet National Bank, the first national bank to be located on an Indian reservation and to be owned by a Native American tribe. She presently serves on the Board of the Native American Bank and First Interstate Bank.<br />Information from:<br />
  106. 106. “That is great, grandma! I can’t wait until I get to meet them.” Siksika replied with a smile. She was sure they would be invited to the birthday parties.<br />“Glad you are doing well I already told your brother and cousins at the dorms. Is Koko available? I would love to talk to her I haven’t heard from her in ages.” Aiyana said.<br />
  107. 107. Siksika’s heart dropped and she noticed Zach tense up. Had Zach heard Aiyana mention Koko? Siksika couldn’t be sure but it was a possibility since the phone could be loud, even without speaker. They had been working on getting her back by researching they hadn’t told anyone but Sika and Zach couldn’t be positive that the witnesses spilled something.<br />“Sorry Grandma she’s not available. I will have her call you as soon as she can.” <br />Siksika had so many different excuses going through her head that she could have used but she didn’t want to tell a complete lie. After a moment they hung up and Sika looked at Zach.<br />“We have less time than we hoped. We have to figure out how we are doing this soon.”<br />“Alright we found some info, let's see how we can make it work.”<br />
  108. 108. For now they took some time away from their research, mainly because they needed a break. They found out as much as they could about what they had seen back at the SS building, some of the information was questionable and made them quite nervous about doing this but they had to get it done.<br />
  109. 109. “The prices for a resurrection could go for so many Simoleons. But there are different effects. The lower the Simoleons the worse the effects. There was talk about zombies if you pay under 4,128. I would really not want her to return as a zombie. “ Zach said.<br />
  110. 110. “Neither would I Zach. But that means we will have to sell a lot of stuff to get the payment the grim wants for a perfect resurrection. “ Siksika added.<br />Just thinking about her time back as a teenager. Seeing those Zombies in that room. The very thought of those days she spent being tortured made her feel uneasy. Siksika hoped to never see another zombie again.<br />“We just have to figure out what we can sell that would give us the most money”<br />
  111. 111. They had decided on what things they could do without for the moment; there was the television set, game system and a mirror among other things. Siksika even gave up the bubble blower which was one of the harder things for a Pleasure sim like her to sell. <br />“For Koko” <br />
  112. 112. They went outside where they had stashed the train set that killed Koko in the first place. It had been surrounded by a fence and untouched since that day. The snow had covered it. Sika and Zach looked at each other then back at the train set.<br />“Lets get rid of that once and for all”<br />They sold the train set and the gate which they hoped would give them enough money for a perfect resurrection.<br />*-------*<br />
  113. 113. The next night the two of them put on some dark garb in order to sneak the phone out of the secret society. The ninja outfits were all Zach’s idea the fact that Zach was still feeling pretty down Sika decided just to go with it. Although, she was quite curious to why he wanted to wear these in the first place. She also noticed he needed to lose some weight from all that stress eating.<br />
  114. 114. “Zach what was the point of the ninja garb, I feel like we are copying SG here.” Siksika said with a sigh.<br />
  115. 115. “Well I thought it would be cool. I’ve always wanted to dress like a ninja. And besides I wanna look cool when Koko sees me again. Who’s SG?” He answered.<br />“Well she’s…. Nevermind. Hey let’s just get into the building, and hope no one sees us. I will tell you later if you are still curious.” Siksika answered.<br />She did hope he would forget about SG once he had Koko back. Siksika wasn’t sure how she would explain the Ninja Goddess that lived down the lane.<br />
  116. 116. The two college students, quietly made their way into the Secret Society lot and snuck past the others up into the room where they had seen the mysterious phone. Sika and Zach looked at each other then at the phone. They counted up the money they had, checked to see they were alone then went up to the phone.<br />
  117. 117. Zach placed Koko’s urn that he had been taking care of the whole time on the floor next to the phone. He picked up the phone as Sika kept her ears and eyes open. <br />“Hey um…. Reaper” Zach started nervously. “I’m looking to resurrect Koko Hunicke. A young adult with red hair, dark blue eyes, glasses, died not to long ago. In a fire yes.”<br />
  118. 118. As soon as Zach hung up; the room filled with a greenish smoke; they coughed and tried to wave it away. Slowly, a figure began to materialize from the haze...leaving the two of them wondering if the amount was enough...<br />*-------* <br />
  119. 119. On a lighter note... over at the Simself house.... <br />There was another special event. A birthday party for the youngest simself in the house. She’s adorable, energetic, playful and outgoing, she has elf ears and is the cutest little sim to ever be born in game…<br />
  120. 120. None other than my Simself’s daughter Ayleen! After about 7 months I finally decided that she may like to do some things herself for once so I’m allowing her to age up to child! But here you have the last picture of her as a toddler. She’s adorable getting ready to blow her candles out with help from daddy!<br />
  121. 121. “Wook daddy wook pretty wights. Wanna touch dem!”<br />“There’s no mistaking it, she’s SG’s daughter”<br />“Hey I heard that!”<br />Ryan simself carefully pulled his daughter away from the fire as she continued to watch him blow out the candles. Ayleen mimicked her father’s movements as she motioned blowing out the candles herself.<br />
  122. 122. Ryan put his daughter down and moved behind with the rest of the simselves and other guests at the party. They all cheered the toddler on as she readied herself for the transition. <br />“Dis tickles. Look Mommy, Daddy I’m fwying!”<br />“You go baby girl! Let those pretty colored sparkles surround you!” <br />
  123. 123. Ayleen came back down to the ground and the sparkles dissipated. In the place where there was a previously sitting toddler was now a little girl.<br />“LOOK I’M STILL CUTE!”<br />“Well you are my child, of course you are cute!” SG replied. <br />“These clothes have got to go though.”<br />“We bought you a couple new outfits go pick out what you like.”<br />
  124. 124. After Ayleen had changed her clothing she went back to grab some birthday cake. As she stood there her father looked at the child and jumped three feet in the air. <br />“Oh my goddess!”<br />“Yes?”<br />“She’s a child!”<br />“Yes Ryan she is, you did just help her blow out her candles.”<br />*This was the exact reaction to Ayleen<br />he had when she came to get cake. <br />It was so funny I had to add it in. :P<br />
  125. 125. After her father’s strange reaction. Ayleen finally was able to grab the cake she had been wanting since she was a toddler. The piece was quite big and a strange glitch or something caused the piece to look different than the rest of the cake but she still enjoyed it otherwise.<br />*Actually it’s something I was warned about when <br />I downloaded a whole bunch of different cakes.<br />As long as it doesn’t screw up the game it doesn’t bother me.<br />
  126. 126. After cake Ayleen. Decided to get to know all of the simselves living in the house with her. Of course she was familiar with most of them but she could now interact with them even more and easier. <br />
  127. 127. And there you have it my next chapter! It felt great to get back into sims story writing after my four month hiatus. Took me some time to get back into the chapter and figure out where I was going with it but here are the Azures, Hunickes and Simselves again! Hope you enjoyed it.<br />
  128. 128. Yes I left you with yet another cliffhanger. You know how much I love them! Well, I love ending with them.<br />How did the newly revived Koko turn out?<br />What will Solan be doing from now on?<br />How will the new arrivals to the Azure and Hunicke clans grow up?<br />Tune in next time for another chapter of Forever Flowing: The Azure legacy.<br />
  129. 129. I would like to thank all of my readers for reading my story. I would also like to thank Ani-Mei for lending me Solan and her simself. As well as the other simselves who I have in my story. I do have many plans for Solan in the future but you will have to wait to find out.<br />
