Welcome back to Herbal Medicine! Last chapter Flora
gave birth to twins, Ginger and Geranium. The older kids
are hard at work trying to get enough money to go to
college. I’m being mean and making them have at least
five thousand saved before I send them off. That why at
least they get to have a little bit of a life as a teen.
Chamomile grinned has put the final bolts of the engine
back on. Her part of the car was done at last. Once
Borage finished the body they could sell the car. She
could hardly wait.
The school bus driver honked impatiently. Chamomile
sighed, the body would have to wait until later.
The house was quiet, the twins fast asleep and everyone
else gone to school. Flora picked up the phone. Time to
start the whole process over again. She sighed as she
dialed Jay King’s number.
While she made her conquest with Jay, Borage was making
conquests of his own. With Gabie from across the street.
After some finishing touches, Chamomile and Borage
finally finished their car.
“We should get another.” Chamomile decided.
“We could get two.” Borage said thoughtfully, “Dill will
be able to help us.”
“If you can pry him away from the garden.”
So they sold the first car and purchase two more. They
divided up the rest of the money between them for
their college funds with a little left over for their mom.
Flora used the money to remodel the upstairs closet into
another bedroom. It wasn’t great, but now there were
enough beds for everyone. At least until the twins grew
“Euca, why don’t we have a daddy?” Foxglove said
looking at her daddy dolls, “Everyone else at school has a
“Dill has a daddy.” Euca said, “Mr. Derek says he loves us
too. And Momma calls Mr. Ben on your birthdays.”
“But why don’t they live with us?”
“I dunno. Maybe cause the house’s not big enough.”
Flora wasn’t able to get a hold of Jay the next day. She
called up Nolan Chin instead. He was a trifle young to
her taste, but he was more than willing.
Flora had to briefly interrupt their date for the twins
birthday party. She held Geranium while Arnica
volunteered to grab Ginger.
They grew up into tuxes. And poor Ginger was bald.
Flora could she both their father, Amin, and her in their
Geranium was quick to be potty trained, but Arnica
whisked Ginger off for a make over. No sister of hers was
going to be bald.
While the other kids took over Geranium and the cake,
Flora struck it up with Nolan again.
Being a romance sim, Nolan was more than ready for a
quick fling. Flora didn’t pressure him, he was still in
college, young and full of himself. She had plenty of help
with the younger children with there being so many
teens in the house.
Borage found he couldn’t sleep and spent the night
working on one of the cars. He managed to max his
mechanical skill. Working on junkers should be a breeze
By morning it was finished. Dill had done most of the
work on the engine and Borage finished up the body
work. It netted them another five grand. Borage
brought another junker and split the money in between
the eldest four. Other than Dill, they were more than
halfway to their goal.
Flora spent the day with her girls. Her stomach was upset
most of the day, but she hadn’t thrown up yet. This by far
was the easiest pregnancy so far.
“Thanks for your help Mom.”
“No problem, Dill.” Flora smiled, “It’s such a beautiful day out
“Yep. Maybe one day we can have a green house so the bugs
don’t get to the plants so bad.”
“One day.” Flora said absently. There was so much more that
needed to be fixed up first. She did hope one day Dill would
get a green house.
“Momma, Momma I got an A+!”
“That’s great Eucalyptus. Now get cleaned up and your
homework done. It’s your birthday tonight!”
“MOM!” Arnica called from the porch, “Mr. Armando is
“Armando!” Flora rushed into the house and kissed him,
“What are you doing here?”
“I heard it was someone’s birthday. Thought I’d drop in.”
“It’s Euca’s. I’m so glad to see you, where’ve you been.”
“The city is wanting to make a rail line to Downtown, I’ve
been buried in paperwork forever.”
“I’m glad you came by.”
Armando and Flora finished their date just in time for
Euca to blow out the candles.
She decided she wanted to have as many romantic
partners as possible. And be a Celebrity Chef.
Flora was awaken in the middle of the night by her latest
child announcing it’s presence. Thankfully this time
around she hadn’t been as sick as she normal was.
Maybe her body was getting use to the constant
The boys were up early to work on the cars. The eldest
three were closing in on the needed five grand to go to
Euca decide to try her own way of getting college
money. Dating gifts. Orion Starr was the first date. He
had the dreamiest eyes and was about to leave for
She was the first Solei to score her first kiss.
It was the best first date a girl could expect.
“I’d like to hang out again, before I go I mean.”
“We’ll see Orion, my mom needs so much help around
“Maybe you could come to my place.”
“I’ll ask Mom.”
“Hi Juan, I love your red hair, is the curl natural?”
“Why yes it is.”
“Wanna go on a date with me?”
“Didn’t you just go on a date with Orion?”
“Well yes, but he doesn’t have red hair.”
“Not a chance, he’s the son of a simself, I don’t want to
be smited when you break his heart.”
“Stupid boys.” Euca grumbled switching to Arnica’s
favorite way to get funds. As luck panned out she was
also the first Solei to find a portion of Pirate Steve’s
After a brief moment of thought, she divided up the
funds between her older siblings and herself. She
could’ve gone to college before them, but that wasn’t
fair. They had poured over a thousand into her account
so she would have a head start.
“I saw that Euca, thanks.” Chamomile smiled.
“Well it was the least I could do, you three are so close.”
Flora woke in the early hours of the morning to find
Ginger still awake. Ignoring the water puddle on the
floor, made by Ginger herself, Flora stole the opportunity
to teach her youngest to walk.
Borage finished yet another car, painting it silver. He
grinned broadly, with the sale of this car he and his
triplet sisters had enough to go to college.
Flora booked Arnica, Borage, and Chamomile rooms to
stay at a dorm. They were required to stay at a dorm for
at least the first semester. She couldn’t believe it, her
oldest children were leaving home. Using her sleeve she
wiped tears away. She was so proud of them her heart
A few hours later the new baby remind Flora, while her
eldest were moving out, there’d were still plenty of little
ones. “Just don’t be Quads okay baby.” She told her
Euca ended up calling Orion over.
“Umph!” Orion exclaimed surprised, “I thought you weren’t going to call.”
“I change my mind, you’re leaving for college today. After that you won’t
have time for me anymore. I figure let’s have fun while it lasts. Then you
can find your one true love.”
“Well, that’s straight forward enough.” Orion said with a shrug.
They hung out together as long as they could, switching
between pillow fights and making out. All too soon for
Orion, his mom called and said the taxi was due any
“I hoped you were the one, Euca.” He said as he turned
“Believe, I’m not.” She grinned the a wry smiled, “She’s
out there, Orion.”
After Orion left, Flora brought Geranium outside to learn to
walk. It was such a pretty day outside despite it being a
The rest of the afternoon was quiet. Flora and Arnica spent
some time in the kitchen together getting ready for the
twins birthday that evening. Chamomile was determined to
finish the care in the driveway being she left. She painted
yellow and gave the money to Euca to divided out for the
Soon it was six and time for a double birthday.
Flora threw a party, inviting over a few friends. Though she
was unable to get a hold of Amin Chen, the girls’ dad. His
answering machine said he was at work.
“Yay! We got matching pajamas!”
“Sweet! Best birthday ever.” Ginger
cheered clapping her hands.
After the party a taxi came to take the oldest kids away.
Flora gave them each a tearful hug and made promise
Dill stood in the garage scratching his head. Borage
talked him through how to fix the body. But he had
forgotten some steps…Maybe Euca would be willing
to help out.
Just before sunrise, Flora went into labor.
“Mom! What do I do?” Euca ran right into the door
“Shut the door!” Flora half shouted.
As Euca tangled herself from the door, little Heather
“Red hair huh?” Flora mused, “Nolan must dye his hair.”
Well that’s it for this round. I’m so glad the eldest three went off to college.
It was a close run, now the house is a little less crowded. Thanks to Ani-Mei
for giving me the name for Heather. She was only a few hours away from
being born and I didn’t have a name picked out. Though I think my game’s
extremely biased against boys. There’s only been seven born to the
neighborhood, and I can’t tell you how many girls. Also I’m thinking about
downloading some baby daddies. I can’t promise they’ll show up in this
challenge since I’ll townify them. But you if have any available sims, feel free
to link them on the Boolprop thread.
Heather mainly used for UTI and other bladder
issues. Though if made into a tea if can be used to
