    Dear Cousin Christina,

    I miss having you to talk to. I can share stuff with you that I can't tell others. Others just look at me like I'm strange when I ask questions or say how I feel. I can't tell if it's just them pretending (the way we all do) or if they really just don't get it.

    Screenshot-26_zps7042fc92.jpg

    I hate when no one really answers the questions or says what they really mean. I don't know if they just don't know the answers or if they don't want to take the time to explain things.

    I have lots of questions and I really want the answers - the real ones, not the fake "go away, don't bother me" ones. You know?

    Screenshot-15_zps66da977f.jpg

    Some things I just want to know. Others I kind of don't want to know, but the questions niggle me. They echo inside my head and get louder.

    Do you ever feel that way? It isn't just me, right? It's everyone pretending: Pretending they know things they don't. Pretending they don't know what they do. Pretending everything is perfect when it isn't.

    Screenshot-22_zps8d71d6b6.jpg

    I hate the pretending. I hate the whispers and looks that people don't think you see or don't want you to see or don't care if you see. Why not just say what you think out loud for everyone to hear?

    Maybe I don't care what some think. Maybe they don't know how to say what they really think. Maybe they are scared like me that others will just look blankly at them, hiding within themselves.

    Screenshot-23_zpse08a506d.jpg

    I want to live without being scared, without wondering all the time. I want to know how to do things and what to say. I want to understand.

    I don't understand enough. Things are confusing and the rules seem to always change.

    This doesn't make much sense, does it? It's just part of me being confused.

    Screenshot-21_zps5f4dbd07.jpg

    This is where you smile and hug me and tell me that I am smart. I will figure it all out. And, that things will be okay.

    I really, really, really want things to be okay.

    I like this alot! The girl writing to someone was a great idea, and made the story pop out! I may have to try this format after I finish my legacy! Keep writing, I can't wait to see what happens next! I can't help but feel bad for the poor girl! If you would take the time to, or are looking for something new to read, would you mind reading and commenting on my legacy, Daisy's DIary? Any and all feedback is appreciated! I am looking forward to an update!:) Here is a link to my legacy! http://forum.thesims3.com/jforum/posts/list/681131.page

    Dear Cousin Dorothy,

    I wish you'd come visit us at our Villa here.
    Screenshot-5_zps27437ae2.jpg

    I get lonely.
    Screenshot-6_zps9d67d33a.jpg

    Papa is a police officer.
    Screenshot-117_zps478e15a7.jpg

    So he has lots of reports to do.
    Screenshot-78_zps1af00316.jpg

    Momma plays guitar at the theatre in the evenings.
    Screenshot-8_zpsb43dc8c6.jpg

    She has to work a lot, but she played guitar for my birthday.
    Screenshot-96_zpsfa91bc05.jpg

    Papa was there too, but he mostly just fished.
    Screenshot-82_zps783cd836.jpg

    We played tag and hide and seek.
    Screenshot-85_zpsaf4f45df.jpg

    I feel sometimes like you are hiding and I need to seek you.
    Screenshot-92_zps3cfbb01a.jpg

    I wish you were here.
    Screenshot-93_zps6c3b3f9e.jpg

    I wish I could hug you like I do my friends.
    Screenshot-97_zps735e7a01.jpg

    I miss you.
    Screenshot-94_zps7a206d92.jpg

    Give your sister Christina a big hug for me.

    Love,
    Your cousin Deidre

    I wish her parents would quit playing around and give her a sibling!! And how is her dad FISHING at her birthday party? What kind of hot mess is that?!

    Lovely filler chapter! Nice way to end my weekend!! :mrgreen:

    Dear Cousins Christina and Dorothy,

    Oh my gosh! Papa shared the news with us today.
    Screenshot-11_zps81bc2f9e.jpg

    I was shocked!
    Screenshot-20_zps61b3bd50.jpg

    I always thought Tia Terri and Tio Stan were so happy together.
    Screenshot-36_zps3133d1eb.jpg

    I know your hearts are even more broken than mine right now and I don't know how we'll ever be happy again.
    Screenshot-41_zps9f013f88.jpg

    My family isn't the happiest. Papa doesn't say much and Mama always seems in a hurry to go somewhere else. I don't know how to make things better; so I read a lot, looking for answers and hiding behind the covers.
    Screenshot-45_zpsf9e18eaa.jpg

    I try to help out.
    Screenshot-47_zps44c2be53.jpg

    I do all my chores without any complaining...
    Screenshot-48_zps3f515e86.jpg

    Just like Papa does.
    Screenshot-30_zps879336fb.jpg

    I wish Papa could get a job transfer back to Al Simhara.
    Screenshot-98_zpsc95e6ca6.jpg

    But I am not sure if Mama would want to leave here.
    Screenshot-100_zps570e783b.jpg

    She loves playing music at the theatre.
    Screenshot-114_zps5624fc29.jpg

    And she has a so many friends that she would miss a lot if she had to change jobs and move away.
    Screenshot-28_zpsca8bedeb.jpg

    I miss you both so much and I really hope you have some happy times to help you forget the sad ones.

    Such a deep wee girl and at such a young age :(

    She has grasped well the concept of treasures that make you happy in life (family) but there seems to be one very important one missing in hers and well those that are close to her, I think are just missing the mark in their own lives! So easy to do in life these days... rush rush!

    Great tell hun, very well written and moving :D

    Ciane,

    Love the letters you've written, and the pictures always tell half the story in my opinion. Great job! :D

    Dear Diary,

    Sometimes you can't find the answers you are looking for in a book

    Screenshot-31_zps7c25883d.jpg

    Or on the internet.

    Screenshot-34_zps393ba6c5.jpg

    I've talked to my smartest friends

    Screenshot-32_zps7e489c3a.jpg

    No one knows the answers.

    Screenshot-37_zpsec9f335d.jpg

    I am afraid -

    Screenshot-40_zpsfe09e099.jpg

    Afraid that something bad is happening to us

    Screenshot-38_zpsde785cef.jpg

    And I just don't know what to do.

    Aw, worry you should for little Deidre faces many obstacles. She will persevere and overcome in the end, but we shall feel her angst along the way.

    Dear Cousin Sam,

    Do you ever take off on your own

    Screenshot-53_zps9be34817.jpg

    And go to a quiet place

    Screenshot-57_zps6d0bf8b2.jpg

    Where everything seems wonderful?

    Screenshot-60_zps66a69ea8.jpg

    I have places where I love to go.

    Screenshot-62_zpsc2b7c938.jpg

    They are places no others (that I know of) go to -

    Screenshot-65_zps4b26cf57.jpg

    Breath-takingly beautiful places -

    Screenshot-67_zps22cc8953.jpg

    Beyond the "civilized" places.

    Screenshot-73_zps96306e31.jpg

    They are places where I can sit and think.

    Screenshot-74_zps7ed2a1e5.jpg

    Somehow, all things seem better when I'm there.

    Screenshot-79_zps0bffeed9.jpg

    You and Finn would love these places.

    Screenshot-81_zps42f837f1.jpg

    I could take you there

    Screenshot-87_zps46113a6d.jpg

    If you were only here to share them with.

    Love,
    Your cousin Deidre
