Secret Society Let DownSecret Society Let Down
A joint legacy between ilovereecee & meadowthayer
Hi there; I’m Hannah Cooke, the cute blonde in the middle and I’m the
generation heiress to my family’s legacy. That’s pretty exciting since I’m a
romance aspiration and the last heir that shared my aspiration was my great-
great-great grandmother Caroline. My father Grant, his father Felix, and his
father’s father Eddison were all secondary romance aspirations. It’s not really
the same as having a primary aspiration. Needless to say it’s been a long time
coming and I plan to make the most of my aspiration has heiress – no baby
raising, homemaker bones in my body!
Anyway, enough about me, these cool kids standing beside me are Howie and
Hope. Howie’s my big brother – a boring old family aspiration and Hope is a
little more like me with a popularity aspiration. At least she might be some fun
My siblings and I wasted no time settling into our new place in
Desiderata Valley. We were all packed and ready to head out to
life on campus at Academie le Tour! It definitely wasn’t the
party school SSU was known to be, but maybe I can liven things
up a bit here on campus!
Upon moving in we had no extra cash, so our means of
entertainment consisted of playing darts – not my ideal Friday
night! But anything beat homework!
“Look Howie, is that a spider’s web in the
corner!?” Hope wasn’t concerned about any webs.
She was very concerned about winning the darts
game though, so while my innocent big bro was
distracted she ran up to the board and placed her
darts in the center to ensure a big win!
“I didn’t see any spider’s web Hope, but maybe. . .
Hey! When did you get so good at darts?”
“This talent is all nat-ur-al, my friend!” Hope
gloated while brushing off her shoulder. Howie
never suspected a thing!
“Hey cheerleader girl, we should totally become best friends. You
know, because I’m a popularity aspiration and best friends are my
thing.” Hope started wanting to befriend everyone immediately
upon meeting them. It was almost annoying sometimes.
“Um, my name isn’t cheerleader girl. And I don’t really have time
to be your best friend – do you know how many houses I have to
randomly bust into and cheer in? It’s a lot.”
Growing up as twins, you might thing my sister and I were
the best of friends, but the truth is we were never really
close. Being in college and on our own now gave us
something to bond over though. I hope to become closer
with her over the next four years. It looks as if things are
headed that way too
Much to my surprise, Howie was the first one to meet a
secret society club member. He went to check out the local
café and met Brenda Dalton – apparently this is where all
the club members hung out. He said he saw like four
people clad in the black jackets! I can’t wait to find out
more about this secret club, everyone I ask knows nothing
about them. Not shocking though since it is a secret. . . a
secret that I am determined to uncover!
Howie and Brenda hit it off right away. He’s very smart to
woo a member of the secret society in order to join the
club. I wish I had thought of it sooner – if my lame older
brother gets asked to join before I do, I swear my social
life is going to be over before it even begins!
I almost fainted the next day when Brenda came to the
door asking for Howie! I thought she was going to take
him to her secret lair where she and all the other club
members chill. Much to my relief, she just came over to
hang out. Looks like she’s not that willing to expose her
not-so-secret secret status as a club member. She and
Howie did spend a lot of time together though, I’ve got to
hurry and befriend someone in that little black jacket!
The first semester of college went by in the blink of an
eye. It almost went too fast; before I knew it, finals were
over and we’d all aced our tests! We had enough money to
buy painting easels (all Howie’s idea obviously) so that we
didn’t have to rely on money at the end of the semester
from good grades anymore. Now we could sell our
paintings for quick cash whenever we needed it.
Painting and spending weeknights at home studying was
totally not my thing! I spent a lot of time out at the local
music club competing in dance contests. My super cool
moves earned me a first place blue ribbon, five hundred
bucks and a great rep with the other dancers at the club.
Soon enough I was the one throwing down the
music! Everyone was dancing to the tunes I spun –
which were of course wicked! I was the life of the
party and just waiting for one of those secret
society members to walk in and see me. Pretty
soon I’d be one of them, I could tell!
Brenda was hanging out at the house a lot more lately with
Howie. I don’t know how someone as timid as my brother
befriends a secret society member so quickly, but
whatever, I totally used this to my advantage. Soon Brenda
and I were hanging out outside of the house. Hopefully this
gets the on the fast track to earning my own black jacket.
Three college kids all living under one roof can get pretty
messy at times. This is why we decided to hire a maid to
help us keep the place above “liveably clean”. The maid
center sent us a pretty cute maid, he might be good use for
more than just cleaning! My sister got to him first though,
being a popularity sim she wants to meet everyone that she
can and then immediately become best friends.
While Hope was checking out the new maid, I was still on
my quest for an invitation to join the secret society! Zoe
was over to hang out with my brother a lot, I guess you
could say they were an item now. Sometimes Zoe brought
friends, usually really popular ones like cheerleaders, and I
wasted no time getting in with that crowd too! You never
know how might be able to help me get my own black
School seemed to be less important to all of us
these days. The last thing on our minds was going
to class. Once Hope learned that she could simply
befriend her professors to earn the grade, she spent
a lot of time chatting them on the phone.
I took Hope’s little discovery to the next level
entirely! I learned that befriending a professor
between the sheets earned you more than just a
few extra A’s in the grade book. It helped my
GPA and my aspiration meter all at once!
“Howie, all this time I thought your younger sister Hannah
was only talented in the chemistry lab, turns out she’s got
some talents in the bed –”
“Whoa dude, too far!!! That’s my baby sister!”
Not everyone appreciated that I was earning my grades via
“extra curricular activity” style.
Howie and Zoe are going steady and soon they were sharing their
first kiss together. I just happened to walk in and see them pecking,
but I left to give them a little more privacy. It’s cute to see my big
brother in a happy committed relationship. I know he only wants to
settle down and have a lot of children and he’s headed in the right
direction – I don’t agree with that path in life, why settle for one
person!? But to each his own!
Hope continues to greet every student that strolls by the
house. If she could meet and befriend every person on
campus, I truly believe she would!
She seems to have taken an interest in one of the passersby
though, his name is Thomas Gilscarbo and even I have to
admit he’s kind of cute. Although he loses major points for
chatting my sister about the weather!
With the cold weather coming on and all of the stresses of
college, well okay, the stresses of having to “persuade” my
professor for grades is totally getting to me. It’s almost
junior year and I think it’s time for a little “Hannah time”
in the islands!
Totally the life for me! Soaking up the sun,
feasting on fabulous Caribbean food and enjoying
every moment outdoors with the wind in my hair!
Hopefully there will be some cute boys here on a
little holiday away also. You know the saying,
what happens on vacation, stays in vacation
I did start meeting some
pretty cool people.
Twikki Island was home
to some attractive island
dwellers! Cara and Jim
were just two of the
awesome natives I met
while on my trip.
Jim and I hit it off right
away, he was such a flirt,
just like me and we got
I was having a blast with the new friends I was making on
Twikki Island, but vacation is supposed to be about
relaxing and I hadn’t done any of that yet. So I
dedicated my last day on the island to doing just that. I
got a fantastic deep tissue massage and even got to soak
in the hot springs – a perfect end to my vacation get-a-
And of course I couldn’t go home without a little
loving! I invited Jim Reeves, one of the local’s I’d
met, over for a nice date night on my last evening
in the hotel.
Of course we may have
taken our “good time” a
little too far, but Jim is
pretty hot and I definitely
needed this. Woohoo
with my professor just
doesn’t do it for me!
I was running a little late the next day getting home and I
missed my first class. I had only been gone a week, so I
was shocked when my brother Howie proposed to his
girlfriend Zoe over grilled cheese. Well, as long as they’re
happy, then I’m happy for them
I don’t care if they are engaged now, if Howie gets
to join the secret society club before me, I’m still
going to be super mad!
I’m making it my mission to get into the secret society
club before I graduate – and that’s not too far away. I
decided to throw a little congratulations party for Zoe and
Howie and Zoe brought some of her friends over. I
befriended her cheerleader pals immediately in an effort to
get my sleek black jacket!
Zoe and I are even becoming closer as time goes on.
Maybe it’s because she’s engaged to my brother, or maybe
it’s because all of the time I spend with her trying to get an
invite. . . either way, it can only lead to good things
Hope and Thomas are
becoming closer and
closer with each day. I
wasn’t surprised when
our maid told me he
walked in on them
sharing a smooch.
Looks like they’ll be
the next in the house to
While my brother and sister are making plans to get
hitched, I’m making as many plans as possible to do the
complete opposite! I really enjoy not having to earn my
grade in college and I still get to have my fun with other
people aside from my professor as well. College is great!
Even Adrian, the maid, and I are becoming closer.
It didn’t take long before our friendship grew into
something more. A few hours in the hot tub with
the hot maid are never bad
Hope and Thomas are
really enjoying each
other. Hope has even
skipped a few
to spend more time
with her beau. They
really are cute together
and I’m happy my
sister found someone
that she enjoys
spending so much time
with. They’re so in
Hope and Thomas have grown so close and have
fallen so deep in love with each other that they are
ready to take it to the next level. Woohoo is a
wonderful thing, and it’s about time my sister
experienced it! Apparently Hailey the cheerleader
shares my feelings on this situation!
“Thomas Gilscarbo, I can’t live another minute
without you as my fiancé. Say you’ll marry me!?”
After sharing the intimacy of their first woohoo
together, Thomas and Hope got engaged. Just as I
While my sister and soon to be brother in law
were upstairs celebrating their engagement, I was
making friends with Hailey, one of the
cheerleaders on campus. It quickly turned to more
than just friends as the night went on though.
One thing lead to another and before I knew it, I
was waking up beside Hailey! She was the first
woman I’d ever been intimate with and it was so
new and exciting. Plus, you never know what
connections she might hold with the secret society.
The end of our college career came a lot faster than I
would have ever thought! We all graduated with stellar
grades from school and lots of good college memories.
Howie and Zoe planned to get hitched as soon as they
moved back home – they can’t wait to start their own little
Hope was thrilled to have graduated with a 4.0
(something the rest of us couldn’t say we did). She
started looking for a job right away in the ads and
also for a small place to call her own home with
her fiancé Thomas.
Although I didn’t have the highest grades or a fiancé, I had
the best time in my college career! I didn’t get into the
secret society unfortunately, but I had a great time trying
to do so. I met a lot of friends, and fell in love over and
over – which is fine for me, I have a total fear of being tied
down to one person. This is the life for me – I hope it stays
somewhat the same once I move back home!
Howie and Zoe moved back to our home town and into a
small two bedroom house. They didn’t want to wait to
have a big lavish wedding with family and friends and so
they tied the knot in their new living room. Zoe became
Mrs. Howie Cooke and she’s now my official sister in law!
I’m proud to say she’s also one of my best friends in the
world. Although marriage isn’t something I would choose
for myself, I’m happy for my brother and best friend!
Howie and Zoe always wanted a large family, and
it sure happened quicker than they ever thought!
Zoe’s first pregnancy resulted in my three
gorgeous nephews and niece! Their family was
complete in just nine short months!
Ivan was the first of the
triplets to be born. He
looks the most like my
family due to the alien
genetics. Ivan has his
complexion, but his
facial features are all
thanks to Howie. Ivan
is a cute little boy and
loves to play peek-a-
boo with anyone that is
willing! Of course with
two family aspiration
parents, someone is
Irvin was the second child of the triplets to be
brought into the family. Irvin is the opposite of his
older brother Ivan. He has his father’s lighter
skintone, but his mother’s delicate facial features.
Irvin is a quiet child, which Howie says he loves
because having three kids is tough enough!
And last, but not least,
my precious niece!
Ivanna was the last one
to be born out of the
triplets and she is the
apple of her parents
eye. Being the only girl
in the group, she
always gets just a little
extra TLC from
mommy! She looks a
lot like her mom, but
definitely has Howie’s
And just like that, the large family that Howie and
Zoe always wanted was complete! With just one
pregnancy, Ivan, Irvin and Ivanna were brought
into this happy couple’s lives forever.
Now my sister Hope
and her fiance are
living in this really
neat apartment! It’s
actually very hip – I’m
pretty jealous that I’ve
got to move back
home with mom and
dad and she gets a cool
new place with
Thomas! Tom and
Hope tied the knot in
their brand new
kitchen and my sister
is no longer Hope
Cooke, but Mrs.
It wasn’t very long into their marriage that Hope found out
she was going to be a mother! Unlike my brother Howie,
Hope only had one child with her first pregnancy. She
gave birth to a beautiful girl named India. Now I have two
nieces and two nephews to dote on
Hope and Thomas’s
daughter was the light
of their lives. Little
India looked a lot like
Thomas, but with
Hope’s small nose.
Again, that seems to be
the thing being passed
down to the girls this
generation from my
family’s alien side.
India completed the
Gilscarbo family and
was the only child Hope
