    The Cowboy and the Mermaid

    The next few weeks are busy with the triplets growing and developing new skills and Mom and Dad learning to cope with three toddlers and their new family life. They are busy, but it is a happy time and Dwight and Lorelei made a great team working together. When Lorelei needs to go out on a dive job, Dwight is able to take over. When Dwight has a case Lorelei is able to be with the kids. As the toddlers learn their skills it becomes a bit easier on the adults.


    They get a pretty good routine with settling the kids in the nursery after supper and finding some time to themselves once they are settled in for the night.

    "Meet you at the pool after you clean up the kids pot. It's your turn." Lorelei laughs and winks at Dwight.
    Dwight hurries with his task and empties and cleans up the potty chair. He arrives at the pool and Lorelei is getting ready to dive in. He jumps on the second board and dives a split second after her. They meet in the middle of the pool and share a kiss. They swim to the side of the pool and get out sharing more kisses. They may both be tired after a day taking care of toddlers and juggling work schedules, but, they are never too tired to share their love with each other.

    @ZeeGee I missed playing this family. :) Thanks for reading. The kiss was a trip to do! I so wanted a kiss in the water though so it was worth it. :smiley:

    The Cowboy and the Mermaid

    An early morning romp in the armoire is always a nice way to start the day.

    Lorelei and Dwight get the three hungry kids started on breakfast. Lorelei watches and helps the kids while Dwight makes coffee and and serves up the last of the angel food cake since they are both quite hungry and don't want to wait for him to cook breakfast.

    Austin is the last to finish potty training.

    Lorelei is teaching Erin to talk while the boys work on their pegbox and xylophone skills. Erin learns to talk and she and Mom have a nice chat.

    Lorelei cleans up the beach from bottles that have washed ashore overnight.

    Erin crawls into the kitchen to find her Dad. She surprises her Dad and asks to be picked up. Such a smart little girl learning to potty and talk before her brothers. Dwight and Erin enjoy a nice chat.

    The triplets enjoy playing in the wading pools. Dwight makes faces at Erin and then takes her down the beach to learn to walk. Eric rides the tricycle around the pool, up and down the dunes and even in between the bushes. He's got some strong little legs. Austin takes a turn on the tricycle as well and beeps and toots the horn laughing with happiness at the sound it makes.

    After dinner, 3 sleepy toddlers are put to bed and Dwight and Lorelei relax in the hot tub.

    The Cowboy and the Mermaid

    Dwight makes waffles for breakfast for him and Lorelei and the triplets get oatmeal with blueberries. After helping to clean the kids up and get them settled for the day Dwight goes to the police station to see if any jobs are available.

    Dwight finds a new job awaiting him at the police station. He has to help this sim find a potential girlfriend. This is not exactly what Dwight had in mine in becoming a PI. He talks to the man and asks him why he does not use the internet dating sites. "Do you know how many married women are on the internet posing as singles?" the man asks Dwight. "Well, no not really." Dwight tells him he will do his best. (don't you admire my restraint from sending him straight to the stylist room!) His first stop is to Pearl to find out if any of her friends are single, lonely and looking for a boyfriend. He then talks with Jules to get a single guys perspective and he gives him the same name as Pearl. The final person he talks with is one of the local paparazzi. She gives the same name as Pearl and Jules. He contacts his client and gives him the name and address of the lonely lady. Lets hope he gets a more interesting case the next time.

    Dwight accepts another job. She has lost a book and would like for Dwight to recover it. It is getting late in the day and Dwight tells her he will start the search tomorrow.

    When he gets home he helps Lorelei put the kids to bed and she takes him by the hand to the elevator. She pushes the basement button when they get in. Dwight is slightly disappointed as he was expecting elevator woohoo.

    She shows him the surprise she got for him. "We've been so busy that we just don't have time to get to the spa for massages anymore, so I got one of these and had it delivered. Hop up!" Dwight gives her a big hug and hops up on the table. She gives him a romantic massage and he gives her a romantic kiss. Dwight gets his elevator woohoo wish. (I love the guilty looks on their faces when the elevator doors open up)

    @bekkasan I think that there are sometimes people on dating sites who are not as single as they say they are!

    Cute picture by the elevator :smile:
  • ZeeGeeZeeGee Posts: 4,693 Member
    Lol the elevator look is priceless. I never knew cases progress that far! I've always gotten bored with detective work fairly quick. I'll have to try it again.

    @king_of_simcity7 Thanks for the comments. :) yep the internet dating is full of liars!

    @ZeeGee Thanks for the comments. :) I'm hoping they get more interesting or I'm gonna have to start making my own up.....but, he won't get credit for those.

  • king_of_simcity7king_of_simcity7 Posts: 24,387 Member
    @bekkasan I have a profile and took a look earlier. I see a few patterns. You get these 'strong and independent woman' who seem to 'know what they want' which of course is the reason why they are on a dating site... :no_mouth:

    A lot of them feel 'empowered' but of course, they are still on dating sites.

    They want a man who can support himself financially. So say the part time workers still living at their parents. Girls who can drive but cannot afford a car. Guys with cars get more replies however... :D

    My favorite is the 'I will fill this out later' in the description and of course 'if you want to know more then ask' which is interesting as they cannot write much about themselves but have carefully selected at least 20 of their Instagram pictures obviously taken over a couple of hours which would have taken a while to get themselves looking good.

    I have no idea what guys put on there as i am not looking for men but no doubt there are the usual 40 somethings messaging 18 year old girls!

    Dating sites have been banned in my game and they will not feature in my story either!

    The Cowboy and the Mermaid

    The next morning Dwight was getting dressed and noticed the little dragon egg that Rafe and Autumn gifted him was rocking. He walks over to it and the little egg rolls back and forth. He hears a distinctive crack and suddenly a tiny dragon pushes its way out of the shell. It is a beautiful purple dragon. It is named Kanth. Rafe had told Dwight what to do when the dragon hatched so he fed it some of the food he had kept stashed nearby and talked softly to it while it ate. The dragon makes soft guzzling sounds as it eats and tiny rumbley purrs as it rubs his head against Dwight's hand once he finishes eating.

    Dwight walks outside to enjoy the sunrise and Kanth rides on his shoulder making the soft rumbley sounds. Lorelei joins him and congratulates him on the beautiful Kanth. They watch as the sun rises over the ocean. The waters seem to beckon Lorelei as the glow from the rising sun warms the air. Lorelei gives Dwight a kiss and wades out into the waters and changes her form. Dwight watches her swim out until she dives beneath the waters.

    Back in the house, he puts the dragon down and fixes breakfast for him and the triplets. After breakfast Dwight reads to Austin while Erin plays with the peg box and Eric is banging on the xylophone.

    Lorelei searches underwater to find the squid that the bistro has ordered. It is apparently becoming a very popular dish and they pay very well for each squid that she turns in. She enjoys a swim through one of the many caves on the ocean floor. She is rewarded with a few shells that she will turn into the science lab when they next request them. She finds two squid and another nautilus shell and swims back to shore to take the squid to the bistro and receive her payment.

    Lorelei arrives home and tells KoolAid about the dragon named Kanth and hopes he won't be jealous. KoolAid assures her sprites are not designed to be jealous. She finds Dwight and the triplets outside. Eric and Austin are in the wading pool and Erin is riding the tricycle. Dwight kisses her goodbye as she settles at the table to read a recipe book while the kids play. Dwight is off to find the lost book.

    The Cowboy and the Mermaid

    Dwight talks to a few people about the missing book and follows the clues to the library. He takes out his magnifying glass and does a thorough search inside and outside the library. Dwight decides to do a stakeout at the library using the new bushes that the boys in blue sent him in appreciation for his help on their last cold case. He later spoke to the librarian about any extra books that might have been found in the library. He explained about his clients missing book. The librarian tells him his client is a writer and often uses real life situations in her books. They have several of her novels in the fiction section. Dwight flips through the novels and returns to his client. He confronts her about the missing book not being missing at all, and she admits that she wanted to see a real detective at work so she made up the story about the missing book. She pays Dwight a bit extra for his trouble and he thanks her kindly and heads home.

    Home at last, Dwight fixes fish and chips on the grill. He calls Lorelei to the meal. She had been playing with Austin. She puts Austin down at the block table where he joins his brother and sister banging and chatting to each other. They smile at each other as the listen to the kids talk to each other.

    After supper, Dwight sets Kanth free to fly about the yard. Kanth caws and roars as he soars and swoops, diving low and rebounding up high reveling in the freedom of flight. Dwight watches with awe and a bit of envy as Kanth flies. Kanth returns to his arm and Dwight gives him a treat. They go back into the house. Dwight helps Lorelei settle the kids into their beds and meets her downstairs.

    They have not practiced nor sparred since Lorelei found out she was pregnant. They go downstairs to the little gym in the basement and both practice their martial arts skills at the trainer and board breaker. Dwight has just broken five foam boards at once and will be able to start with the wood next. Lorelei wants to spar, but there is not enough room in the gym. They find plenty of space up in the living room. The sparring session begins with a bow. They are evenly matched in their martial arts skills, Dwight is a bit higher in athletics but Lorelei is catching up with all the swimming she does. It was a quick session with Dwight getting two hits in a row. They end the session with a traditional bow and then a loving embrace.

    @bekkasan they are making nice progress. I finally caught up. When you said they had'nt practiced their martial arts since Loreli discovered she was pregnant I thought she was pregnant again and was surprised and checked what you had really said.

    The massage table looks like it will be enjoyed by boith of them. I'm wondering what part in the story the toddlers will play when they age up.

    I'm trying to type on my tablet. It'll be another week and a bit before I get back to my computer.
