New Youngdale Build a Royal
Week 1, Hunter
Joshua: I'm FREEEEE! I'll miss Jasmine and Jemima, and even
Glen, but it feels SO good to be free of those old restrictions. I
have music again! I can take almost any job I want, have any
business I want. I'd have to seriously screw up to get punished
again. Queen Michelle may be ticked about the Taint, but it was
the key to my prison, and if I never see another medieval thing
again, it will be too soon. I don't even think I'll plant a garden.
Why should I? I can buy groceries.
Joshua: Hey, Groop. Believe it or not, the first want I rolled was to
chat with you. Go figure. Do you think maybe we can let by-
gones be by-gones? Forgive each other, and maybe even be
friends? Or at least, not enemies?
Joshua: Wow, it feels good to be friends with you, Groop. I really
enjoyed our chat. But now I have to get going. My liege lord is
not even in my relationship panel, so I'm going to have to go out
and track the man down, just so I can pay him next Monday. I'll
go to court and check the jobs board there. It may not be
anything like the old one, or the RAO, but it has a jobs board,
and some fun stuff, and it's worth visiting. Of course, my LTW is
unfulfillable, because The Law requires a college degree.
Joshua: Oh, Alicia! I heard you were the cleric in town. Maybe
you can help me. I have to marry a slob or a service sim, and I
can't hire any service sims, until the town grows, so right now,
my only hope is to be burgled by a sexy girl. And I don't want to
be burgled. Do you know any sexy service sims? Or slobs?
Alicia: Why don't you come to the chapel, and see who's hanging
out there. It's EPIC! Maybe you'll meet a nice maid or barista,
there. Of course, we don't have a coffee bar.
Alicia: So, you're going to become The Law? That is so EPIC!
Not as EPIC as our Queen-Goddess, but pretty epic, anyway.
Joshua: Yeah, that's what I really want. But, it's locked. Not just
for me, though, which makes me feel better. It's locked for
everyone without a University degree.
Alicia: You can follow the EPIC example of our Queen-Goddess,
and change your wants! It's a great plan!
Joshua: Well, this is interesting. There are magic-users here,
pontificating. I guess that's kind of like worship for Michelle, or
something? Anyway, I'll listen for a while. I think this Emma
lady is onto something about Lifetime Happiness. Too bad she's
too old for me to marry. I have to have children.
Alicia: I love this chapel! It looks EPIC! And my goddess is the
most EPIC designer in existence.
Joshua: You might want to move those podiums down from that
stage, so people can actually sit and listen to the sermons.
Alicia: You're absolutely right, even though Michelle's design is
EPIC! I'll totally have to do that when it's my week to play. I'm
sure I can make it look almost as good. Maybe.
Alicia: WOW! Joshua, see how our goddess blesses us in the
most EPIC way!
Joshua: A service sim! And a sexy one, at that. I hope we hit it
off, because I really want to go on a date.
Joshua: Why do all the men who come into this church keep
changing into the same outfit? It's like we shared a suitcase.
Alicia: It's EPIC! Everyone matches! Well, all the men match.
Women don't want to match, so that makes it even more EPIC!
Kaylynn: Don't you know you should always dress up nice for
church? I don't know why all the men chose the same jacket
and tie, but yeah.
Joshua: I know we don't have great chemistry, but listen, Kaylynn,
service sims like you are hard to find. I really want to go on a
date, and if we can make it work, I think it's worth a try. After all,
with enough aspiration, we can change ourselves in ways to
make us more appreciative of each other, so why not? If you
marry me, you'll be able to get in on this town, and help build it
from the ground up! If not, well, no one's going to hire you for a
long time, because of our low population count.
Joshua: Well, we got the date up to a reasonably good level, but
I'm going to have to call it quits, before I pass out. But I'll call
you again, I promise. And we don't have to get married right
away. We can just be good friends, to start with.
Kaylynn: Well, I guess I could move in with you as a friend, and
see how it goes. If we can't make it work, I could move out on
my own, right? There are other service sims you could try, after
Joshua: I've heard of homeless people sleeping in churches, so
this is completely legit, right? If I can get my energy back up
before Kaylynn leaves, maybe we can try that date again.
Joshua: I'm so glad you agreed to meet me for another date. And
the Royal Court is surely a better place to date than a chapel.
Kaylynn: I'm glad you asked me out, Joshua. As it happens, I've
been considering your offer, and I have some ideas on that
score. I don't know what you want to do with your life, but I want
to open a business for myself. I've never had the opportunity
before, but I think I'd like it very much.
Joshua: This buffet is good.
Kaylynn: It's not as much variety as a restaurant, but the quality is
Joshua: Do you want me to take you to a restaurant for our next
date? I can do that.
Joshua: Although, I think we're doing just fine, right here. Let's not
waste any time, Kaylynn. It's a long walk to Clovis' Cafe, and
the timer is running.
Joshua: I don't know about you, but I'm in love.
Kaylynn: Look in my want panel, Joshua. I want to get engaged to
you. Of course, I'm much too shy to propose myself.
Joshua: Well, say no more, my love. Let's start a new date, and
I'll propose right here, and we can get married right here, and it'll
be EPIC, to quote an overly-enthusiastic woman.
Kaylynn: Sounds good to me.
Kaylynn: Nothing's more romantic than getting married in front of a
tray of grilled cheese.
Joshua: I bet Walter would say just that, actually. But nevermind,
love. I'll make it up to you. You can have any sort of business
you want, and I'll totally support you in it. Any job you want.
Whatever you need to get permanently happy, I'll do the best I
can to help you with that.
Queen Michelle: I love to see my subjects happy. Congratulations
to you both!
Joshua: Come on, wife. Let's blow this joint. We can go home
and spend my aspiration points on ReNuYu Orbs, so we can
both get fulfillable lifetime wants.
Kaylynn: And buy my business! Don't forget!
Joshua: Alright! I changed from Pleasure to Fortune, and back to
Pleasure, and now I want to be a Gamer. That's doable. All I
have to do is own the right games.
Kaylynn: I changed from Family to Fortune, and then to Pleasure,
and I want to become a Celebrity Chef. Since there's a high-
level restaurant in town, there's a position open for me!
Joshua: That's great! I'll have to invest in my games before we go
back to the Royal Court to use the jobs board. Should we do
your business, first?
Kaylynn: Yes, please.
Kaylynn: So, there's a lot I'd like to purchase, but we can't quite
afford it, yet. Let's go back to the Royal Court, and get me the
job in Culinary, before someone else snatches it up, and we'll
save every simoleon, living on dates and energizers, until I can
afford it. I just have my heart set on The Trading Post. After all,
the royal family can't buy groceries from themselves, and I want
to be the one who sells to them.
Joshua: Actually, we can make a bit of money right here, between
dates. I've been wanting to learn how to sew, and you're
creative enough, already, that your paintings will sell for a lot of
Joshua: I spent so much on materials for the potholders, that we
just didn't make enough. We're not allowed to dig for treasure at
the Royal Court. I think. … No way I'll risk it. We can dig for
treasure at home.
Kaylynn: One treasure chest will do it. We'll have enough for The
Trading Post very soon.
Kaylynn: Here at the Trading Post, we got groceries, clothes and
greeting cards, so you can write to the folks back home.
Enjoyin' your trip out to the new frontier?
Jan: Ummm, what? We're in the base neighborhood.
Kaylynn: I'm doing a Western, New Frontier theme. Work with me
Jan: Oh, right. Uhh, howdy pardner!
Kaylynn: Your Majesty! We have new stock. Please check out
these new dresses.
Queen Michelle: I don't know. I made my own queenly garb, and
I'm quite happy with it.
Kaylynn: I know you're going to like THIS!
Queen Michelle: Well, it is very pretty.
Kaylynn: And a free makeover to go with it.
Queen Michelle: I like free! And I can always change myself back,
if I want to.
Kaylynn: Now just some jewelry to complete your new look, and
perhaps a bit of perfume?
Joshua: Sorry, Your Majesty. The makeover is free, but you have
to pay for the clothes.
Queen Michelle: Absolutely. I like your uniform, but I miss your
Joshua: It's Kaylynn's choice. Part of her Western theme. I
promised I'd support her in her dream, so there you go. At least
I only have the wrong color hair when I'm on duty at the store.
Queen Michelle: This dress is gorgeous! Why didn't I have the
pattern or materials for it, when I was sewing? I LOVE this
Kaylynn: Happy to help, Your Majesty. Come again! I have some
formals that might interest you. And you might like to see some
new lingerie, as well.
Queen Michelle: Oh, yeah. I'll be back.
“Or maybe the game will just crash. Again. Argh.”
As we come back to New Youngdale, The Trading Post has
worked its way up to level 4, and the Best of the Best. Kaylynn
puts the award close to her biggest money-maker, the clothing
rack. She also adds a personal electronics machine, at
Joshua's suggestion. It might not fit the Western, New Frontier
theme, but it does fit with the “keeping up communications”
theme she started with the newspapers and greeting cards.
Besides, so far only the royal family sell them, like clothes and
Speaking of not fitting the theme, when it comes to the energizer,
even Kaylynn doesn't care. She dazzles the customers a lot,
and needs all the help she can get to keep up her energy. But
during the black-out, she and Joshua had a planning session,
and they know what they're going to do. Kaylynn spends her
business perks on money, and then Joshua can do what needs
to be done to get his LTW of becoming a top Gamer.
And thanks to Our Lady of Solipsism Chapel (and the modded
pontificating devices that Queen Michelle placed there), Goopy
Gilscarbo shows some fashion consciousness, at last. He was
created as a warlock, in order to teach... something. Probably
Joshua: Hi! We just reached level 5, for the last money perk, and I
want to buy my own business, now. And can we make it
snappy, please? I have some customers waiting. Thanks!
Yeah, we'll close up here and head over there in a jiffy.
Joshua: I'm the proud new owner of The Arcade, which, you can
see in a single glance, provides me with all I require to take a job
in the Gamer career. It's fun, Fun, FUN! And Kaylynn and I will
cook hot dogs and burgers to keep the customers happy for a
Kaylynn: I'm not a maid, anymore, but until I buy some new
clothes from the Queen, I still look like one. At least I can
change my hairstyle. And we can have some fun with our
business uniforms, too.
Kaylynn: Joshua, when I said we could have fun with our business
uniforms, this is NOT what I meant!
Joshua: Hey, I wore plaid and a cowboy hat for you. And this is a
lot more fun than that! But I tell you what. When we get home,
I'll build myself a sewing room, and I'll sew you an entire new
wardrobe. Heck, I'll sew you a new wardrobe every year, if
Kaylynn: Alright. Let's just get this place up to level 5, and all the
money perks, so we can build the house and get out of here.
Joshua: You got that right, sweetie! We won't get perma-plat just
working here. We have careers ahead of us. Let's gladhand the
customers and get those stars and get home.
Joshua: All those games and a fresh batch of hot dogs, and all
three customers just decided to stand around in one room, doing
Kaylynn: It looks like Walter and Queen Michelle are having fun.
Queen Michelle: For the last time, Walter, I only let King Clovis
kiss me there! Don't make me smite you.
Kaylynn: I stand corrected. Let me go intervene, fast.
Joshua: I'm doing my best to earn another position in Law
Enforcement, but so far, I've only charred all the hot dogs, never
actually lit them on fire.
Kaylynn: Nevermind that. There are already two open slots. Let
someone else earn another one. Let's just put in a buffet, and
let the business run itself. And just because I was a maid before
doesn't mean I'll let you assign me cleaning duty here. Just so
Kaylynn: And this is why we put in a buffet and let the business
run itself, with the odd cleaning break from us. We both will
need logic for our careers, and this is our chance to build it,
while we earn the money to build our house.
Joshua: Look! I put in a karaoke machine, so we can have fun,
and earn creativity, too!
Kaylynn: And we finally are starting to attract enough customers to
actually turn a real profit, even without the money perks.
Joshua: We did it. We got all the cash perks. Time to close the
business and celebrate with a private date. Hey, what do you
say we put in a photo booth? It fits the theme, and will pay off
in aspiration points, too.
Kaylynn: You got it, lover! And why not put in our own jobs board?
Bulletin boards were common enough in old-fashioned arcades
of the 80's weren't they? Then we can both get our careers
jump-started from here.
Joshua: Alright. I got a job as a noob, and you got a job as a prep
cook. Wait, how come you start at level 6?
Kaylynn: Because I moved in with half my skills at 10. You
probably need mechanical, or something.
Joshua: OK. Still, I'm better prepared than I would normally be at
the end of Day 1. Time to build a good house, with a sewing
room for me, and a music room for the whole family to enjoy.
Joshua: Well, isn't this special. We have the house built and partly
furnished, with $93 left.
Kaylynn: Good thing I'm starting at level 6, I guess.
Joshua: Good thing our businesses are actually profitable, even
without the cash perks. And we have our bedroom, the kitchen,
dining room, all four baths, a living room, garage and sewing
room all set up. There's even a junk car for you to fix up.
Kaylynn: Tinkering is my one true hobby. OK, Joshua. I'll make
sure the family has a fully functioning car, and you'll make sure I
have fashionable clothes to wear. We'll both work to pay the
bills and get perma-plat, and eventually, we can start a family,
once we can afford to furnish the rest of the house.
Joshua: I left the two children's bedrooms blank, and think we
should leave them that way, until we have kids to fill them,
Joshua: I'll see if I can't make a friend before midnight, before I
start sewing. We both need friends in order to advance in our
careers. Clothes aren't quite so urgent.
Kaylynn: Dangit, Joshua! People make assumptions about a
woman dressed in a French maid's outfit. I'm sick of it!
Joshua: I'll start sewing as soon as I befriend Alicia. I'm almost
there, already, and it's only 9:30.
Joshua: I had to sell a few things to pay for supplies, but I do
already know how to make curtains, so a wardrobe won't be far
behind. Any particular style?
Kaylynn: Sexy, but not so-called slutty. I've been slut-shamed all
my life because of that dang uniform. Manmaids get practical
clothes for their uniform. So unfair. Have you ever tried
cleaning a toilet in a short skirt and wrist ruffles?! With some
old rich dude drawing it out with, “You missed a spot.”
Kaylynn: I like a well-decorated home as well as the next sim, and
this woodworking bench will allow me to create some lovely
furnishings and sculptures, while it helps me build mechanical
skill. Or maybe I'll just sell the stuff for extra cash. It's
something to do today, while Joshua is at work, and we do need
A/N: I think I got this from ModTheSims.com, but don't quote me on it. I got sucked into
downloading for several days. It is modded to create stuff from the Sims 3, and I've never used it
before. So far, I like it, even if it has no hobby effect.
Joshua: I got a promotion and a new friend. Still, I wonder. If I
focus tonight on mechanical skill, then head back to The Arcade,
maybe I can use the job board to get an instant promotion, if I
have the requirements. It kinda hurts to be so far behind my
wife in my career, especially since we both want to top our
careers to go perma-plat. But I suppose I really should make
her at least one good outfit, first. I did promise, after all.
Kaylynn: I'll just study my life skills, while Joshua makes my new
dress. Then, we can date and get all platinum and happy before
tomorrow's work shifts.
Joshua: The karaoke machine is definitely one purchase I do not
regret. I love music so much!
Kaylynn: Fun for the whole family. Speaking of which, I vote we
wait until I lift my career before we start ours. Also, what do you
think of adoption? I'm not keen on pregnancy.
Joshua: Suits me. I don't care about passing on my genetics, and
I understand there are several orphans in New Youngdale.
Joshua: I'll take a page from Kaylynn's book, and do woodworking
while she's at work, and I have the day off. I can learn
mechanical skill for my job, and make money, too. Perhaps
someday, I'll keep something I make, but mostly, I'm just selling
Kaylynn: Hi, honey! I'm home! I got promoted. Bye, honey! I'm
leaving for my next shift!
Joshua: Hi, Neptunium. Guess what? I made my wife a pretty
pink dress. Now, I'm calling potential friends, to build up our
friend count. Want to count as my friend? Great!
Kaylynn: I got another promotion! Let's celebrate. Remember
when you promised to take me on a date at the restaurant? I'm
driving. Oh, and thank you for my pretty new dress.
Joshua: I made a formal dress for you, too. Before the week is
out, you'll have a whole new wardrobe.
Kaylynn: I love you, Joshua.
Kaylynn: Thank you, Joshua. This place is really nice.
Joshua: It's the best place in town, until we open our own
restaurant, and make something classier.
Kaylynn: Why would we want to do that? I work in a restaurant all
day long. I don't want to do it on my spare time, too. Let
someone else open a second restaurant. I'm satisfied with our
two family businesses. We're not merchants, after all.
Joshua: Darling, you don't have to clean up our dishes. They
have waiters for that.
Kaylynn: Oops! Old habits die hard. Let's go home, Joshua. I'm
Kaylynn: I love my pretty pink dress. I also love this train set
Joshua bought for me. It would be ungrateful of me not to finish
setting it up so that we can play with it, together.
Joshua: I got a promotion and a chance to turn around for another
shift. Maybe I won't try again with the jobs board. It won't take
me long to top the career, after all, and the highest I could get
with the jobs board would be level 6, anyway. I don't know.
We'll see how I feel when I get home tonight. At any rate,
promotion money is very nice, indeed.
Joshua: I got another promotion!
Kaylynn: True, but you're still four levels behind me. Why don't we
go back to The Arcade, put in a bookcase, so you can learn the
mechanical skill you need and I can top Tinkering enthusiasm,
and we'll get you caught up a bit?
Joshua: And we'll get more money to finish furnishing the house.
Joshua: That worked well. We made $15,000, and now I'm a
Platform Jumper. You know, The Trading Post is good for
learning retail badges, but this really is our family money-maker.
Kaylynn: True. But I do not regret opening The Trading Post. It's
a good place for sims to shop, if they don't want to shop at the
royal stores, and so far, no one else can sell clothes, food,
jewelry, perfume, or personal electronics to the royals, either.
We were the first to sell to them. That's a good thing.
Kaylynn: Are you making me new gym clothes? These are OK,
but since I want to max my body skill, I'd like something better.
Joshua: I'm working on it right now, love.
Kaylynn: Comin' home as a restauranteur, and going back to work
for that final promotion. If I'm promoted today, I'll call the
adoption agency tonight!
Joshua: I'm a Power Leveler! That's level 7. I may not be perma-
plat by the end of the week, but certainly early next week. And I
only have one more outfit to sew to keep my promise to my wife.
I'd best get to work, so I can surprise her when she comes
Kaylynn: What a day! I'm a Celebrity Chef, which means that
anyone in New Youngdale can take a job in Culinary, even if no
one else even opens another restaurant, let alone builds it up to
level 5. And since I decided to sell my food in airports, I also got
a sweet bonus of $55,000! Plus two shifts' pay and two
promotion bonuses, I made over $60,000, easy. We can
definitely afford to furnish the rest of the house and adopt
A/N: These two are such a cute couple. And to think they started
out without any chemistry, at all. Joshua was just desperate for
any service sim that he didn't even look for another, once he
found her, and I'm glad.
Joshua: So, with the top-level chef in the house, I'm in charge of
cooking toaster pastries because why?
Kaylynn: Maybe you'll help open another slot in Law Enforcement.
Anyway, I'm not sure when our child will be delivered, so I want
to be able to answer the door at a moment's notice. No
Joshua: I hope I meet the kid before I go to work, at least.
Joshua: Nope. It's the hot dogs, all over again.
Kaylynn: Nevermind, love. I'll be in charge of feeding the family
from now on. I only work a few short evening a week, after all,
and I can stock the fridge for those nights. Why don't you just
toss those bricks?
Kaylynn: It's two o'clock, and I'm still waiting. When are they
going to bring my child? As soon as I finish this song, I'm calling
them again. This is unacceptable! What if I had stayed home
from work for this?
Kaylynn: Hmmm, there's no answer. I hope there's nothing
wrong. What if they had an accident on the way over? Oh, now
I'm starting to worry.
Joshua: I'm a Real Time Strategizer and a Dad!
Kaylynn: You're a Real Time Strategizer.
Joshua: What? I'm not a Dad? I mean, I know I had to go to work
before they brought the kid, but surely, he's been delivered by
Kaylynn: Nope. And I'm getting really worried, now! Joshua, what
if they had an accident and our child was killed?
Joshua: It'll be OK, darling. This is the sort of thing that Queen
Michelle will go to great lengths to fix. And you befriended her at
The Trading Post, too, right?
Kaylynn: Yes, but she doesn't have all of her goddess powers?
Just the witchcraft ones.
Joshua: Trust in the Queen-Goddess, darling. If she can't fix it
now, she'll fix it next week, I'm sure.
Joshua: But perhaps we should make it a point to worship her, to
help her regain her powers faster.
Kaylynn: I had planned to go to the chapel every Sunday, anyway,
but if our child doesn't arrive soon, I say we go there tonight, as
well as tomorrow!
Joshua: I agree. Let's give it until 10 pm. No child should be out
later than that on a Saturday, anyway, right?
Kaylynn: In the meantime, I'm calling Her Majesty. Just to put her
on alert. Maybe she knows something we don't.
Queen Michelle: What's that? I am so ticked off about this. That
is IT! I'm coming over right away. I may not have all my
powers, but I'm pretty sure I have enough to deal with this.
Clovis! Pack the SimBlender and the Tombstone of Life and
Death! We're on the case!
Kaylynn: Oh, Your Majesty! Thank you so much for coming.
Joshua and I are so upset! We had our hearts set on adopting a
boy and a girl. And now, it seems we can't even get either one!
Queen Michelle: Never fear. I have it under control. Believe it or
not, this is actually low-level goddess stuff. I can definitely fix
this. Even if I do have to wait a few weeks before I can deal with
the social worker, directly. You'll have your family tonight,
Kaylynn. Just let me get set up.
King Clovis: OK, I'm picturing green hair for the girl, and black hair
for the boy. You can do that, right?
Queen Michelle: I said that getting the children was low-level
goddess stuff. I can't get that specific, yet. Anyway, genetics
has never been my forte.
Joshua: We don't care what they look like. We just want our
Hocuscadabra and alacazan!
House of ginger and marzipan!
Get this family children to fit,
Now, before I lose my... marbles.
Queen Michelle: Brenda Livingston and Don Baity, welcome to the
Hunter family. Let me just blend your names and relationships,
and make you officially Brenda and Don Hunter.
Kaylynn: Oh, they're so beautiful! They need new clothes and a
make-over, of course. We'll hit up Clovis' Closet right away.
And tomorrow, we'll all go to the Our Lady of Solipsism Chapel
and give thanks to our goddess!
Joshua: That was amazing!
Queen Michelle: That was exhausting. I need to sit down for a
Joshua: Oh, I hope you're alright. But we just can't express our
gratitude enough! We're definitely going to go to church every
week to help rebuild your powers. Who knows when someone
else might need your help? Thank you so much, again!
Kaylynn: Come on, kids. It's getting late, but we still have time for
makeovers, and then it will be time for bed, so we can all get up
bright and early for church.
Don: Yes, Mother!
Brenda: I'm ready, Mother.
Kaylynn: I'll take you, then, while Joshua sees to Her Majesty.
She's tuckered out. King Clovis, will you join us there?
Don: I like this outfit, Mother! Can I have this outfit?
Kaylynn: Of course you can, my darling. I may not let you wear it
out in public, but you can enjoy playing in it at home. Let's find
you something a bit more appropriate for school, shall we?
Don: Awww. But I can still have this and wear it at home?
Kaylynn: All day long, at home, yes. Just not out to school, or on
Kaylynn: Alright, children. You've had your make-overs, and I
bought clothes for both of you, and personal electronics for the
whole family. Are you ready to go home?
Brenda: We're both platinum, from making friends!
Kaylynn: I'll take that as a yes, then.
Kaylynn: I'm so proud of the way you both behaved so well while
we were out. And now I have a surprise for you. Your rooms
are ready. I hope yo like them. We didn't duplicate the toys in
each room, so you'll have to share with each other. The
dollhouse is in Brenda's room and the activity table is in Don's.
But you both get your own desks for schoolwork, and your own
toyboxes. And when you grow to teens, you'll each get a special
birthday present, in keeping with your character.
Joshua: Oh, this is just a dream come true. I'm so happy to have
both of you here. And may I say, I think your costumes are
Kaylynn: I bought them proper clothes for going to school, or
around town, but said they can wear these as much as they
want at home. It's good to have options to play in.
Joshua: I agree! But now what will I sew for them?
Don: OK, I'm ready for church. I wish I could wear my dragon
costume, but it's probably for the best if I don't. The other sims
will just get jealous. I wonder if it's fun at church. I mean, what
do we do there? Well, I guess I'll find out soon enough. It's
almost time to go.
Joshua: Now, I want you both to be reverent, and listen to what
the preachers have to say. You can learn a lot, especially about
lifetime happiness, which will really help you. We'll stay for the
whole morning, then enjoy a nice lunch in the dining hall, and
then go home for some family bonding.
Brenda: This is kind of awkward, and I'd rather be outside playing,
but I am glad to be learning how to be happier, and I'm grateful
to Queen Michelle, so if we have to worship once a week, I'm
willing. But next week, I want to wear a different dress. I don't
like looking like other girls.
Don: Cool! There are instruments! Maybe after the sermon
they'll let us play them.
Don: I got an A plus grade, just from worshipping! Does this mean
I don't have to go to school again?
Joshua: No, you still have to go to school. That's where you will
meet and make new friends.
Don: Well, that was kinda cool, even if we didn't get to play the
instruments. School will be easy, now that I have that headstart,
and I can focus on friendship. Now for a nice nap before family
bonding time. I wonder what we'll do together?
Kaylynn: When did this arrive? Well, I don't know when it got
here, or who it was for, but I do know what I'm going to do with it.
Platinum aspiration for everybody! Who says peasants have to
have a hard life? My kids are going to be he happiest children in
Kaylynn: Wait. NOW you're here? Where the heck have you
been? Queen Michelle used her powers to get us two children,
Social Worker: Does that mean you don't want to adopt little
Candice, after all?
Kaylynn: Don't be ridiculous! Of course we'll take her!
Kaylynn: We'll set up the nursery in Joshua's sewing room, and
when she grows into a child, she can share with Brenda. The
room is certainly big enough.
As for that genie lamp, Joshua will get his perma-plat status from
his lifetime want within the week, so the three wishes will go to
the three children. It works out almost perfectly.
Joshua: I don't mind waiting. I'm happy about Candice!
Joshua: We won't add Candice's furniture to the girls' bedroom,
yet, but we will add a bathroom. With two full bathrooms on the
ground floor, and three full bathrooms, plus one double-bath
(two toilets, a bathtub and a shower) on the upper floor, no one
should ever need to wait in line to get ready in the morning. And
if we have to, we'll add a third floor to our house. But for now,
this should be plenty. MUCH better than the medieval peasant
house. I'll show them the pictures, someday.
Kaylynn: So now we need a change in schedule. I'll teach Candice
to talk, while the kids nap. When they wake up, I'll put her down
for a nap, while we all play Don't Wake the Llama, for some
family bonding time. We can't bond all of us at once, right now,
but we have time to get to know each other one-on-one.
Joshua: I am so happy with my family! And I love you so much,
Kaylynn! What a good wife you are! I'm sure you'll be an
excellent mother, too.
Brenda: We both already know Lifelong Happiness, but Mother
says we can't play Don't Wake the Llama until we wish for Peace
of Mind, whatever that is.
Genie: Oh, you're going to love it! You know how you both felt
when you first made friends with each other? You're gonna feel
that way for the rest of your lives! No matter what!
Joshua: This has been a most wonderful day! I hope our family
can always be this happy together. Now children, it's very
important that you behave, and don't break the laws. Queen
Michelle has been very good to us, and will be in the future, so
long as we don't break the laws. You see, she has this thing
about challenges, and you don't want to be chosen to do one.
Don: Rawwr! I'm a strong dinosaur, and can handle any challenge
Her Majesty throws at me! Rawwwr!
A/N: I'll give you that one for free, kid, because you're so cute.
And who knows? Maybe you're right. We'll only find out if you
break a law, after all.
That's it for this week, folks. See you next week with Alicia and
Chuck Beholden, because I want that chapel fixed, and I'm
thinking of making them teach a school.
