    The next days the teens tried to pursuade Haldir and Travis to stop the homework. They´ve told them that they had learned their lesson and that they would do more in school in the future but now they wanted to have some holiday, too.
    OvIU2kI.jpg
    Of course Thore´s dads refused to release them from homework so they sat together in front of their books and pretended to learn. But Seth was a bit angry about Thore, because in his opinion it was his fault that they had to do so much work in their holiday. He had the view that he was distracted from learning all the time by Thore. Thore, of course, had a different view. He said to Seth that he hadn´t been so lazy if he hadn´t been distracted so often by Seth.

    After a few days they had fallen out with each other a bit so the adults decided that after each lesson the teens should have some fun, too, just to release some stress.
    So Haldir and Travis took them to the beach on one evening
    7J2LTfA.jpg
    uF6CLVY.jpg
    on another one Tyler and Stella took them to a funpark
    DBFLTdE.jpg
    They even were allowed to spent a day just for themselves so they went to town and spent their day in the streets of Monte Vista, went to the library where they didn´t read one book but tried to distract everyone from reading by talking very loud (they thought this was funny! :D )
    0pNuf7E.jpg
    got something to eat at Thore´s home and played video games untill late night.

    They had enough time to be best friends again!

    At the last days of their stay the two teens were released from homework finally!
    Thore and his dads spent the days by seeing some sights at day and going to the cinema
    qhiLc0c.jpg
    and playing some games together at the evenings,

    while Thore spent much time with his parents.

    Both teens were compensated for their "hard" schoolwork by getting much attention and affection of their parents!

    @AlexaKry Awww, bummer the boys had a falling out, but glad to see they made things up. Yes, they do need some fun time to balance out the stress of homework.
  • AlexaKryAlexaKry Posts: 2,593 Member
    @bekkasan : thank you for your comment!
    😀 the boys needed some discipline (at least in Haldir's opinion, Tyler was more relaxed and wouldn't have punished Seth, but if his father said the teens needed discipline who was he to defy his dad?)😜)
    But it were just 2 or 3 hours a day for a few days of their holiday, so they didn't suffer! 😂
    And they were very lazy at school, hopefully they've learned their lesson!

    Finally!
    Stella´s dreams came true (and Tyler´s, too, so to say, because he couldn´t bear his complaining wife anymore when it came to Taius! ;) )
    While the older couples spent some time with the teens and when there was some time left with their partners
    (Here Haldir adores his husband´s dancing
    N9ty28Q.jpg
    oLMRhDC.jpg
    8c9VjET.jpg
    while Tyler drew his beautiful wife again
    KlaVJma.jpg
    C5EG8Uw.jpg)

    Taius took the chance to go out to visit Monte Vista on his own. One could also say he fled from his mother who´s desperately bugging him for getting a husband NOW!
    So he went to all the interesting sights and fell in love with the old architecture and the lively city.
    And while he went to the bookstore to get some picture postcards some day he ran into a good looking Italian guy, named Giacomo Costa. They immidiately felt the love sparkle between them
    A3o5rYH.jpg
    Although Taius couldn´t speak Italian Giacomo was able to talk to him in English and so they talked about nearly everything which came to their mind untill it was dark and comfortless.
    ECJ73U3.jpg
    3CJK7Pl.jpg
    BN30eRx.jpg

    They decided to meet each other the next day evening to go out to eat
    Taius was welcomed with a soft hug by Giacomo and he felt very secured by him.
    XJZgEn9.jpg
    They ate together and talked a lot again
    WcDw2ZO.jpg
    CgObLia.jpg
    and as the evening went on Taius decided to go the whole hog and kiss Giacomo

    9ZUSPV4.jpg
    22x0YAH.jpg
    KV2fy8p.jpg
    Qw4dVIm.jpg
    they decided that they would spent some more time together even after the restaurant had already closed and watched the stars together
    w34SGFS.jpg
    z6Fvlkl.jpg
    LygKcUZ.jpg
    and they watched the sun rise, too. At Giacomo´s house.... :p
    u4Dalxb.jpg

    and guess who´s now living together with the other Helmquists? :D
    Giacomo moved in
    iEQj3cQ.jpg
    (He moved in so quickly, because the spring holidays were over, the teens had to go back to school and the family left Monte Vista, needless to say that Stella was happy like a Gummie Bear!)

    But they didn´t go back to Great Bear. Haldir and Tyler decided that Thore and Seth should concentrate on school fully (well, it was Haldir who decided, Tyler was happy to agree! :D ) so they decided to move to Northeney again. The school there was excellent, small and the teachers had the repute of being very strict and demanding. The perfect school for the lazy teens who would end school in the summer and who had to improve their marks a lot (Haldir thought)!
    Thore and Seth weren´t as happy as their dads of course! :p They knew that there were just a handful of teens at the school and they thought that the island life sounded booooring as ❤️❤️❤️❤️!
    But when Haldir decided something it had to be done like he ordered so the family moved into the big old farmhouse again!
    6PE8ky2.jpg
    Time for the teens to start their last days of school!
  • bekkasanbekkasan Posts: 9,598 Member

    @AlexaKry Congrats to Taius for finding his love. Such cute pics and sweet first kiss!
    Glad to see they are going to settle in Northeney for the boys schooling. All that moving around isn't good for students! lol
  • AlexaKryAlexaKry Posts: 2,593 Member
    @bekkasan : thank you for reading and commenting!
    The teens are clever, they could attend every school and would get good marks. But they were lazy as ❤️❤️❤️❤️ :D and this made Haldir to think about this little private school at Northeney. He was a bit fed up with their lazyness, because like every parent/grandparent he wants his kids/grandchildren to be successful in life. And he clearly thinks of their university time which will follow after school. It´s always easier to get a good exam if you know how to learn and how to focus at the tasks you have to do!
    And he and Travis watched Tyler with care, Haldir had talked about his foreboding to his husband and both are a bit worried about their second youngest son! So they had him in mind as well when they moved to Northeney, because they thought that Tyler needed some rest from the struggles he faced with Stella and her demands for getting Taius the perfect partner. Tyler suffered more than he would ever wanted to admit from her constantly knocking Taius, so Travis suggested to go back to the island so Tyler could spend some time on his own and ride the horses and clean his thoughts.
  • AlexaKryAlexaKry Posts: 2,593 Member
    Sorry for the picture heavy continuation, prepare for long loading! o:)

    So the family moved to Northeney again (thank you Norn for this beautiful world, it´s one of my favorite ones!)
    The teenagers were grumpy, because they now had to work very hard at school. They didn´t have much sparetime and they had to learn a lot to catch up with the other students, which meant that they had to learn at the weekends, too. Seth´s compensation for all the stress was to ride to and back from school while Thore always sneaked out in the evenings to go swimming, sometimes even without the notice of Haldir or Travis, because Thore was getting better and better in hiding his aura from his dads.
    k0PyX2J.jpg
    QZD2wws.jpg
    drSTdoS.jpg
    4VuQztP.jpg
    At the end of each schoolday Seth rode home, while Thore went to the underground to go home. If he went home; most of the time he went through the little town, did his homework at a little café or went to the fitness studio. He still was very angry about his dads that they didn´t go back to Great Bear/Moonlight Falls (in my Sims world Great Bear is just a 1/2 hour school bus ride away from Moonlight Falls and the boys went to Moonlight Falls to school) where he had so many friends he now just could call, which was unbearable for him!!
    So he did everything not to go home, because everytime he was at home he had discussions with his dads and with Tyler whom he was angry with, too. He thought that Tyler had had to stop this nonsense of moving away from Great Bear but failed, because he was too weak to speak against their dads! Thore was so fed up with his family!

    However Seth was happy to get home after school, he didn´t like to be there or in the little village, he wasn´t interested in making new friends, because he just would lose them after this semester anyways. So he enjoyed the company of the pets of the family.
    The only thing he was a bit afraid of was riding, but he likes to be challenged so he always took Maritza to ride to and back from school. Just a coincidence that he could have been faster at home if he had walked back home! :D
    QVaoOlf.jpg
    KS1mMkZ.jpg
    mOPQntS.jpg
    (every time someone passed by he died from fear! :D )
    At his way back he crossed Taius´ house where he was always greeted by his big brother. (Taius always waited for him just to say hi, what a marvellous big brother!)
    malPZT5.jpg

    Coming home was a relief for him, even although he had to care for Maritza after each ride (he had to take her, because she was the calmest of the horses)

    uF74olS.jpg
    SE9z5jh.jpg
    cK1UOKZ.jpg
    tntIeZJ.jpg
    yggNs7x.jpg

    He even tried to get along with the nervous and sultry Franco, his dad´s horse. He wished he could ride Franco one day, because the horse was very fast and already won some prizes!
    But Franco was not easy to be convinced that Seth was trustworthy.
    GHTY4Nc.jpg
    vOzSZNZ.jpg
    BdhXcff.jpg
    gwIKQMi.jpg
    So Seth searched for one of the dogs, because after the hard school days he just needed someone to be with him joyfully.
    Mostly it was Rasta who came to him and to show him how he was adored by her!
    (And she liked that she got some scratches and some pets!)

    rjVjhHz.jpg
    zNKuvXZ.jpg
    c2OENJX.jpg
    Bavhgg1.jpg

    When all chores were done and his homeworks finished he had to learn further more by playing chess with his mom.
    He hated it!
    UbxQva0.jpg
    9z8JwWm.jpg
    He´d rather be together with his father, but Tyler was even more the loner he normally was.

    Haldir watched his bigger son with concern, he didn´t forget his foreboding!
    And he and Travis had concerns about their little son, as well. They knew that he was swimming a lot, especially in the evening hours and because he could successfully hide his aura from them later in the summer they always had the fear to get their son back in a black sack!
    Tyler developed the habit to ride across the island in full speed in the evenings and nights, far away from safe underground.
    Gp8XOfY.jpg
    SpZdtX0.jpg
    RosZDiU.jpg
    Sometimes he met his little brother who sneaked home. Both didn´t talk about their meetings to the others.
    w6tZdgz.jpg

    Only sometimes Tyler spent his time with Stella now, mostly they played chess. He even had to be asked by Stella to touch her belly and to talk with the baby, something he did all the time when she was pregnant with Timian, Taius and Seth. Stella cried a lot during this time, because Tyler was only short times at home in the night and always went to bed after she already was asleep.
    vrtx5j6.jpg
    3G3p8o5.jpg
    p6nYNAl.jpg

    Haldir and Travis watched all this with growing worries, wondering if their decision to move to Northerney was the best solution to the problems of the family!
  • AlexaKryAlexaKry Posts: 2,593 Member
    But there was was one family member who wasn´t worried at all! (well, at first he was but that was only at the first meeting!)
    One night Streuner smelled some new and beautiful scent.
    He searched for the source of it and what did he discover?
    A beautiful creature, coming directly from cat´s heaven!
    UsF1NPA.jpg
    9PKsANZ.jpg
    He immediately made contact with her
    2z7hqUy.jpg
    and it seemed that she liked him, too! <3
    GoeTHIl.jpg
    ZfOQMZm.jpg
    gxnjj2a.jpg
    During the next days this little black cat often came around to see Streuner
    kJLuu46.jpg
    30rCIuN.jpg
    even noticed and petted by Seth who liked this little friend of Streuner
    b2GDBlO.jpg

    and one day, when the opportunity was favorable

    And finally school was over for the teens!
    They finished it successfully and now they could celebrate their birthdays.
    First it was Thore who became a young adult:

    1UQkLQA.jpg
    VcX4rRO.jpg
    8CCswZn.jpg
    GvV3EMk.jpg

    d0d24Wd.jpg
    UzIBF0U.jpg
    A no-go!!! :D
    4LTMQ0l.jpg

    Then it was Seth´s turn:

    v5c6QTV.jpg
    4ADI2hR.jpg
    iKYCLCV.jpg
    RPwQrwx.jpg

    Everyone in the household was relived that they now didn´t have to go to school anymore and they were making plans for the future while eating the birthday cake.
    suO6tPt.jpg
    Well, the older grown ups made plans, Thore and Seth had to follow their suggestions nevertheless!
    So the both ended up to do the university test, which both passed very successfully!
    R5sUdOa.jpg
    AqljO2j.jpg
    SjGBPO9.jpg
    So after some days of recreation they left for university!
    W784To4.jpg
    kreMQhq.jpg
    ljwN9RF.jpg
    Both were happy to leave the family and the island, their prison as they called it in the last days of their school days!
  • AlexaKryAlexaKry Posts: 2,593 Member
    AfterThore and Seth settled down in their new house, (decided who got which room, planned which delivery service would be on the speed-dial buttons and phoned their parents that they were well) they went to the student union to get to know the other students.
    Thore was not interested in getting to know the other students as eagerly as Seth, he was more interested in getting the free gifts!
    OCzGkyd.jpg
    rlQBkXf.jpg
    One should think that because his family is awfully rich he wouldn´t be interested in this cheap give aways but at the end of the day he had
    11 frisbees and 7 little balls in his inventory! :D And 2 candy bars, which he ate and vomitted afterwards!
    Seth made contact to the other students immediately and asked Thore to join them, although Seth is the younger one of them he takes care of his uncle who is a loner. And Thore appreciates this mostly, because he thinks that it´s very hard to get to know someone.
    O155p48.jpg
    DyloluA.jpg
    But most of the time at the student union he was found either at the gift station or outside, studying his brain! :D
    3mdIevT.jpg

    In the next days both of them were very motivated and gave their best at their studies (Thore studied Science while Seth studied sports)

    wlcEDG5.jpg
    4RnZ4AB.jpg
    mavGhzC.jpg
    But after a few days their interests shifted to the more funny things of student lifes, they continued where they left off in their school days:
    They went to the campus insted of going to their classes
    H1HdpoN.jpg
    went bowling until late at night

    dNv4kwq.jpg
    D6H8PEq.jpg
    and played frisbee when-ever and where-ever they were
    2lWNWG5.jpg
    In a nutshell: their fields of studies changed during their time at the university.

    They attended a party every evening where they drank a little too much
    6JKrEPJ.jpg
    ydPjwny.jpg
    lYeWCf3.jpg
    Seth could sweat out the alcohol by attending the practical classes or he went to the gymn
    while on some days Thore didn´t even go to the classes anymore, instead he stayed at home and liked to dance a lot, there he felt more confortable than at the classes.

    mRhohxy.jpg
    (sorry for this picture spam, but I love this dance!!! o:) )

    One evening both and the entire other party guests decided to go to the campus and to make an experiment with the big and expensive machine there. Because Thore studied science it was easy for him to persuade the janitor to give him the keys for the facility and so they made their studies. ;)
    Thore and Seth ran the machine while some of the others of the party guests guarded the situation

    iXYbtwN.jpg
    Unfurtunately being drunk and handling a million Simoleons worth machine doesn´t go well, so they broke it!
    Soon the party was over!
    After Thore and Seth slept off their drunk they decided during the breakfast that it was time to go home, quit their studies and tell their parents that they didn´t want to study anymore. In addition they decided not to tell their parents that they broke the machine, because they hoped that it wasn´t discoverd who broke the it. (They were too drunk the night before and forgot to remeber that Thore asked the janitor for the keys, so their decision not to tell teir parents the truth was not the wisest!)
    N9zQ7Ai.jpg
    EcDSf08.jpg
    kq1onvZ.jpg
    6es6xvk.jpg
    So after a few weeks their times of study were over and they happily left university to go home.
    In the morning their parents discovered their sons at the breakfast table. Unfortunately the university´s dean just phoned with Haldir regarding the machine so the breakfast wasn´t a welcoming as both thought it would be!
    I27qCFD.jpg
    The arguments and fights between both and their parents won´t be pictured, they are too nasty to show here!

    It ended with Thore and Seth escaping their parents by going on a long ride. :D

    Their riding skills improved a lot during the day! :D
    And after this long day at the back of the horses their bottoms were hurting, but they decided that it was better to have an aching bottom than to face their parents. When they came home they could nearly see the anger of the others.
    So they talked over a game of domino what their future would look like and what they wanted to do in the next days.
    oVr3Wrr.jpg
    Seth said that they should inform themselves at the computer and internet what they could do in the next weeks
    3LXUezW.jpg
    and Thore agreed with him.

    There would be some changes for them in the next weeks, so much for sure!!

    @AlexaKry Sorry I got behind, but am catching up this morning. It was a very busy work week. I started with Tibor's story as I have a big crush on him! :grin:
    That is very clever of Seth to enjoy the ride to and from school on his horse especially since he is still afraid of riding apparently!
    Lol at Thore hiding his aura from his Dad's! Wow...he is still mad at them for not going back to Great Bear and Midnight Hollow!
    Oh dear, poor Tyler going thru this depression while Stella needs him with her pregnancy. I hope something snaps him out of it.
    Kaila is beautiful. Streuner sure seems happy with her addition to the family! :wink:
    Thore is very handsome as a young adult and I agree the game outfit had to be changed!
    Seth grew up very handsome as well!
    Uni! More school, but more freedom too! lol
    I enjoyed the uni pictures especially Thore dancing. :grin:
    Bummer they broke the machine.
    Oh dear, caught!
    I look forward to seeing what they decide to do as well as what happens with Tyler!
  • AlexaKryAlexaKry Posts: 2,593 Member
    @bekkasan : Thanks sooo much for commenting and reading!
    (It seems as if you are the only one reading this story so I´m happy that you like it!) <3

    Yeah well, academic life seems the wrong way for Thore and Seth. :D
    They don´t like to sit down and learn and get god marks, much to the chagrin of Travis and Haldir who want their children and the grandchildren to be sucessful. And they think that the kids have a privileged life and that they have to give their best with all the chances they get in their lives! They are very ambitiuos and know that you have to work hard to be prosperous so they don´t have any understanding for lazyness!

    Yes, Thore is still angry at his dads and their decision to move to Northeney. I think that especially Haldir and Thore have such different characters that it is hard for them to understand each other completely. Travis is a bit more relaxed and is holding Haldir back a bit and tries him to understand their son better, but Haldir is veeery angry about Thore and Seth and their braking of the machine!
    Tyler is more relaxed when it comes to Seth. He loves his friendly and kind son very much and doesn´t mind the costs of the machine, they have enough money. And he has complete understanding for his son to enjoy his time at university! But at the moment he is a bit distracted anyways so Seth will be punished by Haldir. I don´t know if this is good for Seth! :D

    And yes, I´m a bit proud of the look of them when they became a young adult, I think they are handsome young guys. ;)
    But I have a crush on Tyler so my priorities are with him at the moment. :D
  • AlexaKryAlexaKry Posts: 2,593 Member
    The Helmquists make a pause from their normal life!
    They wish you all a Merry Christmas! Have nice and relaxing days with your friends and family! And hopefully you´ll get everything you´ve wished for!

    @bekkasan : Thank you for commenting!
    I somehow missed your post, so sorry for the late response!
    Thank you, I´ve tried to make them wear clothes which looked like something one would wear on Christmas morning. The whole family is dressed in Christmas patterns, some of them are still in their pyjamas, like the kids and Tyler, some have put some decent things on but don´t wear shoes orthey wear just slippers. Only Travis is fully clothed, let´s pretend that he brought out the garbage. :p

    The Helmquists are still on their Christmas vacation. On this New Year´s Eve they ate a lot before they went out.

    @AlexaKry I don't know how I missed the beautiful fireworks. Great pics of them!

    @bekkasan: thank you!
    Sorry for my belated answer, I had a lot of work to do in the last two weeks!
    (couldn`t even play, I´m on cold rehab, literally. :D )
    My family had a lot firework to lighten up for the pictures, because at first I always missed the explosion. But they were very patient with me! ;)

    Back to Northeney!
    Seth and Thore waited for their parents to decide what punishment would follow after they broke the expensive equipment at University.
    At daytime they pretended to be good sons and increased their skills in mixing poitions and in inventing

    but at night they went to the towns amusement district and had lots of fun.

    They behaved like the other awfully rich kids, they´ve spent their time without doing anything else than having fun.
    They drank too much and experimented with some drugs, not knowing that especially Haldir was getting more and more upset, because he expected better from them! This was not the life he showed them and what he wanted any of his kids should lead! He was angry as ❤️❤️❤️❤️!
    While taking care of the pets he talked about what to do with them with Travis.

    He wanted to talk to Tyler as well, but his son had his own problems so he couldn´t decide together with his father. Haldir was very concerned about both of his sons and his grandson! And there was only Travis with whom he could talk about his fears! But he knew that Travis had big worries, too, it were his sons, as well. He didn´t want his husband to get too sad, he already saw that Travis wasn´t as happy as always.
    Haldir regretted that he talked about his foreboding with Travis, because the fear of the foreboding becoming reality made his husband so sad! And it dawned at him that the future had become the present!
    A plan matured in his head and he made a decision. He was of the opinion that the two boys had enough fun, they should work instead!

    But before he could tell everyone about his decisions something even more important and wonderful happened!

    Unfortunately the parents weren´t as happy as they should have been....

    Should I really say "welcome" to Samuel?

    As always it was Tyler who took care of the little one.

    Stella didn´t like to change diapers and this time she didn´t even get a bond with her son!
    She was too worried about her relationship. Tyler always was a loner, but at least he talked with her in the past! But now he even avoided to look at her! She felt so lonely! She had thought that a new baby would bring him back to her but since he knew that she was pregnant he seperated from her even more!
    He still rode across the island in the evenings, only to come back very late and get to bed without having talked to her a word the whole day long.

    In the past she could talk to Haldir, but since his foreboding and his warning to her he didn´t talk much with her anymore and their relationship was getting worse everytime she talked to Thore. But Thore was the only one who she could talk to! She didn´t want to bother Seth with her worries, she couldn´t talk with him about his father and eventually talking bad about him. She wanted their relationship to stay as good as it was! But she was sad! And she was angry about Tyler that he wasn´t interested in her fear that there was something missing in their relationship! He didn´t touch her since he knew she was pregnant and she was so desperately in need of some love! She didn´t know what she had done wrong and why he was so dismissive!
    So she and Thore talked a lot since he was back from university. She liked her brother-in-law very much, he was very similar to his brother!
    At some days he was the only one who took notice of her!

    Little did she know what feelings she awakened in him!

    Another day started and the family had breakfast together.
    As always in the last days there was disharmony among them.
    qxiZmd8.jpg
    If somebody said something some others disagreed or told him to shut up.

    Haldir was concerned about this situation, because he knew how his beloved husband suffered from this. And he noticed the looks Stella threw at Thore, of course.
    riB2kBY.jpg
    Haldir couldn´t understand why Tyler didn´t intervene! But his son didn´t say anything, he just took care of his son, painted a lot and took the horses for long rides across the island.
    It drove him insane that he couldn´t change the situation! He wanted to do something, help his sons, threw Stella out of the house, forbid her to talk to Thore, whatever! Just taking action! But Travis forbade him to intervene, he told him that if he did intervene his sons could be very angry about him, because he didn´t knew what they were thinking about this whole situation. So both of them watched the situation with a very sad heart, unable to change anything. And how awfully would they have liked to help their sons out of their misery!
    Haldir was even told by Travis that he shouldn´t take action about the punishment Thore and Seth should get because they´d broken down the equipment! He was frustrated! He always was someone who took action if something went wrong, being forced to passivity was against his character! But he understood the arguments of his husband and had to be content about doing nothing.

    But then one day the events came thick, fast and in a rush.
    While Travis was playing chess, waiting for Haldir to come home, Seth painting a picture and Tyler playing with baby Samuel
    Thore could no longer suppress his feelings:
    He had to tell Stella how much he adored her!!! (unfortunately right in front of his father, bad timing!!!)

    Perhaps Travis could have glossed over it but as Stella reacted to his son he was furious!

    He hoped that Tyler who was in the back of the room with the baby took notice of the cheating and he was relieved when Tyler confronted Stella with her cheating!

    But he forgave her after she asked for apology ( a circumstance which made Travis even more angry!)

    f1SpKPn.jpg
    So Travis took the chance to relieve his anger and frustration (which had pent up the last few weeks) by yelling at Thore and telling him that his behaviour was really, really bad!
    Thore and Tyler had never seen their gentle father in such a rage!

    Thore apologized immidiately but Travis was too angry about his youngest son. He told him that he didn´t have to apologize to him but to Tyler!
    He told his youngest that he was so gutted by him and that he never ever had thought that one of his children would destroy the relationship of one of his/her siblings! (And he was angry about Tyler, as well, because he accepted Stella´s apology!)

    The only one who didn´t say a word was Seth. He didn´t know what to think! His best friend flirted with his mother and was obviously in love with her; his mother flirted back, a circumstance he was agry about as ❤️❤️❤️❤️ and his father just gave in to his mother´s lame excuse!?!?
    He was stunned about his father, he always thought that he was a man with good morals, but giving in to a cheater??? He was confused! If only his parents had parted before! He knew that they hadn´t had the same lovingly feelings towards each other anymore, so why didn´t they just broke up? Why was his father so passive? And why had his mother chosen Thore for her little game??? He hoped that he could talk with his grandfathers about the incident as soon as Travis had calmed down a bit and Haldir was home again! (normally he would have talked with his beloved father about such problems but this was no option at the moment, Seth needed an explanation about the whole situation and he knew that only his granddads could explain what was going on and what would happen now. And his dad was gone, he had taken one of the horses again! And he couldn´t stand his mother now, he thought that it was her behaviour that made everything broken!)

    And while everyone fled from the fighting scene nobody thought about the little baby. T-Rey discovered his dearest master´s son and decided to take care for him until somebody came back to take Samuel out of the swing. Such a good boy!

    Tagging you @JoAnne65 !
    You remember one of the pictures and my concern about it?
    Well, I didn´t delete the save but played it out! The next events are your fault! :p;):D

    I’m afraid I lost sight of your story, I’ll do some prereading first. Curious what will happen :D

    ETA:
    I really like your sims, there’s something special about them. And it’s great you pay so much attention to the animals (that cat love story was the cutest). It won’t be long before a particular dog will make his entrance in my game; it took longer because I decided to focus on scuba diving and IP first, but Daryl is about to move now). That custom world is awesome.
