In which I try to add some story element for future purposes…. Please forgive me if it’s bad…. (;;>_>)
Sandi: “Casper, I want to talk to you in the kitchen.”
Casper: “Yeah, alright. Be there in a minute.”
As soon as he had sauntered into the kitchen Sandi quickly approached him with the ire of a mother bear.
Sandi: “What the hell are you doing with a tattoo like that on your arm?! Do you understand what that stands for?!”
Casper: “Chill, Sandi. It doesn’t mean anything in particular. I just really liked it.”
Sandi: “Don’t you treat me like an idiot, young man! I’ve seen too many case files with that tattoo! If your father was still a live he would be so disappointed in you! He never would have left any of this to you!”
Sandi: “Maybe I should tell your mother about this! I’m sure she’d be thrilled!”
Casper: “You leave my mother out of this! You lost any power you had in this household when Dad died.”
Sandi: “What about Ashleigh! Does she have any idea about this?!”
Casper: “You think I would hide something like this from her?! She completely supports me! More than what anyone else did!”
Sandi: “Are you serious? Are you still that blind?”
Casper: “If you’re not happy here you can always leave! The only reason I haven’t kicked you out is because of Dad, Kristi, and Brice!”
Casper: “Stay out of it, Sandi, if you know what’s good for you. I have it all planned out, so, there’s no need for you to stick your nose where it’s not wanted.”
Sandi: “If you think you have it all figured out, Casper, then you’re a real idiot.”
Trevor: “So, we meet again, dishwasher….”
He’s here every day to fix something. They should just ask him to move in.
Casper: “Hey, Brice! How about I take you out for some practice driving!”
Brice: “Um, OK.”
Casper: “You can go faster, you know. I’m pretty sure that snail is about to overtake us.”
Ashliegh: “…and so Snow White awoke to the Prince before her. The Prince announced his love and asked for her hand in marriage….”
Candace: That’s a little fast, don’t you think? And isn’t she, like, 13? Doesn’t that make her a little young for him? I mean, he’s gotta be at least in his 20s….
Ronin’s birthday arrived…
Ronin: Oh God! I can’t breathe! Help!
Ronin: Look at this luscious mane of hair!
He looks almost exactly like Casper when he was a tot. 😥
So, I gave him hair to try and make him look a little less like his dad.
Ronin: You seem trustworthy and I like your sweater.
Ronin: Oh, hey, big sis!
Ronin: What are you doing?
Candace: *stares back*
Ronin: Why are you looking at me like that? …It’s kinda creepy….
Ronin: Look at her Patches…
Ronin: Playing away at that shape thing toy…. I know she’s plotting the strategy for my death….
That’s a pretty deep conspiracy for a toddler to have….
Casper: “Hey, Brice! Go put on your suit. I’m going to take you out.”
Brice: “Eh? Where?”
Casper: “Don’t tell your mom. We’re going to have a man’s night out.”
Brice: “You’re taking me to a strip club?”
Casper: “Um, no.”
The car ride was more awkward than the practice drive he had done with Casper a few days ago. It wasn’t that he didn’t like Casper, but he and Casper barely knew each other due to Casper’s long absence at boarding school.
There wasn’t really much he could think of to say and Casper seemed to only talk when he felt like he had something to say.
Casper: “Here we are.”
Brice: “Do you think I really should be here?”
Casper: “It’s cool. This is my boss’ private club. It’s not really officially opened until later.”
Casper: “I’ll order you a drink. Hey, Jay!”
Brice: “I don’t think I really should….”
Casper: “Nonsense! You’re going to be a man soon, you may as well start drinking like one too.”
The drink was sweet and cold to his lips…
… but as it made it’s way down it seemed to warm his entire body.
His head felt a little fuzzy when he stood up to look around the empty club.
Brice: Oh look! Shuffle board.
Casper: “You’re not bad at that game.”
He really couldn’t wait to live the life of an adult if this was what it was like. He had never felt this kind of strange freedom before.
Casper: “So, Brice, have you given any thought as to what you’re going to do when you graduate?”
Brice: “Aw man, you’re not getting after me now too…”
Brice: “Mom keeps talking about how I should start focusing on something for a career and I don’t even know what I want to do!”
Casper: “It’s really important that you think about this. You’re welcome to stay with us for as long as you need, and, you know, it would be easy for me to pull some strings to get you a job with me.”
Brice: “Was this whole thing to try and recruit me?”
Casper: “Only because I need someone I can trust by my side. You don’t have to accept, but I wanted to give you the opportunity if you want to take it.”
Brice: “I don’t know, Casper. I’m not sure exactly what you do, but I’m not sure if it’s for me….”
Casper: “It’s just all business, that’s all.”
Brice: “I don’t know… I can think about it….”
The following morning….
Ronin: Get me out of here! This isn’t my crib!
Ronin: The colours are all wrong, Momma!
Ashleigh: “He’s not hungry or stinky… What on earth is he crying about?”
Casper: “Good morning, little man! Daddy’s home from work! Did you have a good sleep?”
Ronin: YAY! DADDY! …I think I’m gonna puke….
Casper: “Were you a good boy for Mommy?”
Ronin: Please! HAHA! This is not helping my stomach!
If you were wondering why there haven’t been too many gnomes, all my gnomes seem to be going the way of the rest of the population of Sunset Valley. 😦 (That and I haven’t noticed them doing anything particularly interesting…)
A few days later Brice’s birthday arrived!
Brice: Already?? I still don’t know what I want to do!
Sandi: “Go cut your hair.”
Well, he didn’t cut his hair, but he somehow grew it a little more…. He’s kinda pretty, so he looks a little strange with short hair….
Ronin: Oh, good morning world! It’s another day.
Ronin: …! Has she been spying on me this entire time?!
Ronin: Thank goodness! She was probably just about climb over here and kill me!
She’s not one of those forever creepy “weeping angel” statues from Doctor Who!
As usual Casper came into the nursery after work to see his two children. He scooped Ronin out of his crib and greeted him with a kiss on the top of his head and warm smile.
Ronin: What’s that on your face?
He asks it as if it’s the first time he’s seen it….
Casper: “That’s Daddy’s soul patch. Do you like it?”
Ronin: OMG IT’S REAL HAIR!
Ronin: I want one!
Casper: “When you’re older you can grow one too.”
Ronin: No, I want one now!
Ronin: GASP! It made a noise!
Ronin: I’ll be recording albums before I’m 4!
Meanwhile, despite her efforts, Sandi couldn’t shake off the worry for her family. She had nightmares of that tattoo that she was far too afraid could come true.
She decided to dawn her best disguise from her former occupation and drove to the edge of the street leading up to the old abandoned warehouse. She walked the rest of the way up the road, her steps barely making a sound in the crisp silent night. As she drew nearer and nearer to the building she could feel the anticipation and anxiety growing inside of her.
It had been a long time since she had done this, but she had her experience to back her up…
… and the safety of her family on the line….
Casper: “Hey, yo! Arnie! What can I do for ya? It can’t be good news if I’m hearing from our PR guy.”
Casper: “My Step-mom? Yeah, she did. What’s the deal? I told her to back off. I can handle her fine. What’s that?”
I’m sorry for the lateness of this post. I was having trouble focusing and was feeling unsure about it (though the latter is nothing new I guess..( >_>) ), but I hope you enjoyed it. I will have the next part up as soon as I can! I don’t think I will be doing this weekly anymore, but when I can I will. Thank you everyone for reading and thank you for your patience!♥♥♥♥
If you’re unaware and interested I have picked up playing Salvador and Russel again, but I’m only posting it over at my simblr when I have pictures I would like to share.
I noticed that there’s a couple pictures out of order. I had moved tumblrs and I when I was reposting I thought that I was being careful, but either I messed up (which is probably more likely) or tumblr did something weird. I’m really sorry for that, and if I knew a way to fix it I would. (;_;) The pictures should now be in the order they’re suppose to be! Thank you again, ohmysims!♥ 😀
Anyway, take care everyone! And for those of you celebrating holidays whether it be Christmas, Yule, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or if there’s one that I am unaware of, I wish you all the best and I hope 2012 will bring you happiness and peace to you and all your loved ones. 🙂
