Chapter 8.7

Chapter 8.7  Damn Technology

A few months later, after fixing the main household computer, Basil had a birthday.Screenshot-11468Even his estranged father made an appearance, mainly for the cake side of things.Screenshot-11474‘See, I told you he’d turned up once we paid him!’ Maple laughed.Screenshot-11490Young Basil grew up into a not too bad looking teenager, meaning that he fortunately had inherited more of his father’s genetics than his mother’s.Screenshot-11496‘Why am I being blamed for the downfall of the Bailey genetics?’ Whitney complained, to no one in particular.  ‘If anything, you should be thankful that my genes eliminated the Mika Moore moose nose.’Screenshot-11437However, as it turned out, her input was no longer valid in this legacy.

‘Oh come on!’Screenshot-11439‘Erm, so, hey there, Death, fancy sparing my life like you did with my husband?’Screenshot-11452The Grim Reaper loudly cleared his throat, eyes gesturing down to the floor. Screenshot-11453Whitney quickly got the hint.Screenshot-11451‘Oh please spare my soul, wonderful great one!’ Screenshot-11449‘Hmm, let me think.’Screenshot-11450Screenshot-11454Once the deed was done, old Grimmy made a beeline for the Bailey library.Screenshot-11459‘Now, time for some Game of Thrones.  I wonder if Ned Stark will heroically save the day?’Screenshot-11462Meanwhile, outside, Maple and Cory were too busy making out to realise Whitney had died.  Funnily enough, since they were getting old, they were scared of dying alone, which is the reason why they had decided to give things another go.Screenshot-11518‘I love you, Mape,’ Corry said, his voice sending warm flutters down Maple’s spine.Screenshot-11524‘Let me show you how much,’ he added.Screenshot-11525Maple was speechless when he whipped it out.Screenshot-11529‘Will you marry me, partly so I can get rid of my ridiculous surname?’Screenshot-11530For what seemed like several minutes, Maple stared at the sparkly retina-burning ring in awe.  She honestly never thought she would marry anyone during her generation.   Screenshot-11531‘Oh, go on then!’ Maple finally confirmed, after deciding to play things cool, rather than start crying and beg for him to wed her then and there.Screenshot-11534And so, they were engaged and happy.Screenshot-11540Although deep down inside, Cory would never forgive for having another man’s child and would always resent Basil’s existence somewhat.Screenshot-11507The children were not too happy when they heard about their engagement.  Basil was particularly annoyed because he would have preferred for Maple to marry his biological father, despite the old man was on his last legs.Screenshot-11515As for Orion, he coped by taking a hell of a lot of space heroin and almost overdosed.Screenshot-11542All in all, it was a standard week in the Bailey household.

 

Chapter 7.4

Chapter 7.4 Double team

As promised, Hershey granted his older brother the air-time he deserved.  Twix, being a smart cookie, utilized this time wisely and decided to take Whitney to a nearby lake; not to drown her, but to pop the question.Screenshot-8779After much fumbling, he managed to open up the box and reveal the ultra sparkly engagement ring to Whitney, who had been waiting for his proposal pretty much since the day Hershey had proposed to Allyson.Screenshot-8782Still, she managed to feign her surprise, and all in all, it was a pleasant engagement.Screenshot-8786Screenshot-8789‘I like sparkly things,’ Whitney stated.  She stood there staring at her engagement ring for the next five hours.  Twix got bored after two hours and left her to it.Screenshot-8787In the end, Twix and Hershey ended up having a double wedding.  It was a practical idea considering how long wedding parties seem to take in the Sim world.Screenshot-8818As expected, they wedded in the same location Cointreau and Jeffrey had, mainly because the scenery was fabulous for photographs.  Naturally, Twix and Whitney were first to exchange vows, being the stars of this generation and all (well, for the time being).Screenshot-8831‘Check us out, doing adult stuff!’Screenshot-8826Aero was the only family member who held a small trace of resentment because he wished he could of had a fancy wedding.Screenshot-8839Instead, all he got was a crappy off-camera notification.Aero and Adrianne marriedWho this “close friend” was, no one knew, not even Aero.Screenshot-8837Still, it was a beautiful ceremony.  Screenshot-8843And most importantly, there was cake.Screenshot-8852Earl, who was the only one still alive from generation 6, actually only showed up because of this.Screenshot-8858Oh, and Allyson almost got married to the wrong guy, who happened to be Samuel McNeil.Screenshot-8859He had split up with Bounty a few months ago, after finally finding out that she had deliberately stopped taking her contraceptive pill.Screenshot-8863Fortunately, Hershey stepped in just in time and told Samuel where to stick it.    Screenshot-8867And so, they were married and all were happy.Screenshot-8875Screenshot-8876Screenshot-8873Well, all except for Tremayne as he managed to miss the weddings by -you guessed it- shorting-out after trying to down a bottle of tequila.Screenshot-8900  

Chapter 7.3

Chapter 7.3 Hot proposal

In all honesty, Tremayne knew he was a bit of a third wheel.  He’d been around since Generation 2 and did not do much besides work one day a week for the military, and often shorted-out from doing stupid things.Screenshot-8794He never thought his moment of glory would arrive; at least, not during this generation.Screenshot-8686Early one morning, he awoke to loud bang and copious amounts of smoke.  Upon investigating, it became apparent that Hershey had somehow managed to set his current project on fire whilst using a blowtorch.  Instead of rationally calling for the fire brigade, or trying to extinguish out the flames himself, Hershey just stood there cluelessly.  In his defense, this was the first fire he had ever experienced, and quite possibly the first fire in general since around Generation 4 or 5.Screenshot-8682Luckily, Tremayne knew just what to do.Screenshot-8687And this was when Hershey started to panic.Screenshot-8690‘The foam’s staining my workbench!’ Hershey whined.Screenshot-8688Somehow, among the chaos, Hershey caught on fire.Screenshot-8694Tremayne seized the opportunity to save his life, in hope this would secure the recognition he admittedly deserved.  Meanwhile, Allyson stood idly by waiting for Hershey to go downstairs to make her breakfast.Screenshot-8695By the time the rest of the family entered the room, Tremayne had extinguished the fire in it’s entirety, including the flames that had been scorching Hershey’s skin.  No doubt a trip to hospital would was in store for him, so Allyson went without her breakfast.Screenshot-8698Naturally, Tremayne did not get a thank you for his heroic actions, and life continued on as normal.  Well, until around two weeks later when, one afternoon, Cointreau was walking down the stairs after waking up from a delightful nap.Screenshot-8713She had just reached the bottom when she heard a strange dematerializing sound.  The same one in fact that she remembered hearing when her father, Jameson, had died.Screenshot-8712‘Crap!’Screenshot-8711Sure enough, the Grim Reaper had come to collect Cointreau, and try and claim back the money for his Justin Bieber ticket.Screenshot-8715‘Jeffrey’s been mean and won’t pay me back,’ The Grim Reaper complained.  No doubt he was pouting his lips underneath his little black hood.Screenshot-8717‘I’d like you to help me please.  I’ll allow you to continue on with your illegal activities in the spirit world,’ he bargained with Cointreau.Screenshot-8723Since she’d been retired from the criminal career for several years, Cointreau happily took him up on his offer.  Life had been boring her a bit recently anyways.Screenshot-8724And so, Cointreau’s grave was added to the mix whilst she glided off to the land of spirits to track down Jeffrey.Screenshot-8736Hershey was so choked up by his mother’s death that he decided that he could not sit around and waste another moment.Screenshot-8730He surprised the hell out of Allyson by proposing to her, before Twix had even had a chance to appear in this chapter.Screenshot-8761‘We’ve had more air-time than the heir of this generation; let’s get married!’Screenshot-8763Of course, Allyson accepted.  She loved shiny things almost as much as Ricky.Screenshot-8769Screenshot-8770‘Hey bro, err, this is kind of my generation and you’re stealing the lime light just a tad.’Screenshot-8806‘Ok, how about you open up the next chapter with something golden?  I’ll keep out of things for a few pictures too.’Screenshot-8807Thus, it was pretty much settled that Twix would get a lot more exposure in the next chapter, and quite rightly so.Screenshot-8809

Chapter 6.3

Chapter 6.3 – Never trust a Fireman’s pole

It didn’t take too long for Frangelico to become a local celebrity thanks to her questionable awesome singing / whistling ability.Screenshot-6028Using their wealthy expenses, Frangelico and her boyfriend, Jerry Wheeler, bought a lovely three bedroom house on the nice side of town and decided to get married a few months later.Screenshot-5987After that, it wasn’t long at all before Frangelico became pregnant.Screenshot-6040Eventually, she ended up having a baby boy, whom Jerry named after his favourite Pokemon character.Franny is a mummy

As for Saffron, for once her love life actually existed.  She had met a strapping young man on a night out with a few of her co-workers.  His name was Max Grant and naturally he was the biggest douchebag who worked at the local fire station.  He had a reputation of bedding a different girl pretty much every week.  He also had two children from two different woman, one of these ladies being his older brother’s wife (true in game story).Screenshot-6034Completely smitten, Saffron quickly moved in with him and also often stopped by to visit him after she had finished work, despite at first he refused to let her kiss him, his excuse being that it wasn’t a professional thing for him to do in front of his work colleagues.Screenshot-6036Screenshot-6037Saffron sensed that this wasn’t normal behaviour, particularly because his co-workers were not in the same room as them half the time she visited.Screenshot-6038Eventually Saffron had enough.  One afternoon, she marched straight up to Max and forced her lips against his, right in front of his best friend, Peter Ferris.Screenshot-6054Being a bit of a sex maniac, Max went with the flow.Screenshot-6055‘I want you,’ Max panted, breath hot against her mouth, ‘let’s take this to the sofa.’Screenshot-6059‘Dude, I’m still in the room!’ Peter exclaimed, although Saffron did not give a flying fuck.Screenshot-6056This opinion was cemented when she proceeded to pole dance on the fireman’s pole. Then she had sex with Max on the sofa, with Peter still sitting there, too terrified to move.Screenshot-6053Literally days later, Saffron decided to propose to Max.  She thought she had tamed the beast, you see.Screenshot-6090Being a materialistic arsehole, he accepted her proposal.Screenshot-6091‘I wonder how much cash I can get from this at the pawn shop?’ Max said, accidentally out loud instead of thinking it.Screenshot-6093‘What?’ Saffron said, before Max quickly pulled her into a warm embrace.

‘I was joking,’ Max laughed, before adding that she was the love of his life and that he would treat her like a princess forever and ever.Screenshot-6096Unfortunately he was lying.God dammit MaxTheir engagement had lasted barely a week.  It turned out that he’d also been seeing some girl he’d met at the laundromat who had strange looking breasts.Screenshot-6152Check them out!Screenshot-6156To add insult to injury, Saffron’s ex from University, Garry, proudly announced, a few days later, that he was now a father.Garry is a daddy lolFortunately, Saffron decided that suicide was not the answer and put all her focus into her career, swearing to never let another man mess her around again.  To cement her new found independence, she moved out from Max’s apartment and bought her own place using her awesome salary.  

Naturally, Cointreau and Jeffery, who had moved into the Bailey household a few months ago, had a laugh and joke when they heard about Saffron’s misadventures with love. Screenshot-6003Jeffery then reminded Cointreau that he was all hot and awesome and would never hurt her like Max had done to Saffron.Screenshot-6013Screenshot-6009Cointreau was pleased with this.  She also hoped that since all her siblings had now moved out and stuff that she would be mentioned more in the next few chapters, what with being the founder of this generation and all. Screenshot-6012 

Chapter 5.5

Chapter 5.5 – Bumps and Bulges

Mika eventually moved into the Bailey household, and before long her and Jameson were spending pretty much every Friday night at the local karaoke bar, what with Mika being partly Japanese and all.Screenshot-3494Neither of them were particularly talented singers, so eardrums were destroyed, and the venue soon enough became overrun by cats. Screenshot-3495It seemed appropriate one Friday for Jameson to propose to Mika, right after that had sung “Don’t go breaking my heart”.Screenshot-3504She happily accepted; the commute between her home-world and his was becoming a bit of a nightmare, not to mention the expenses were only raking up.Screenshot-3511They hugged, and then resumed butchering well-known songs. Screenshot-3515As time continued to pass on by, Coco decided it was time to retire from the professional sports field.  She celebrated with awesome sunglasses and lots of confetti. Screenshot-3564And then she proceeded to mediate in one of the bathrooms. Screenshot-3541From doing this she managed to locate her inner peace and finally decided to apologise to Jameson about being an awful mother.Screenshot-3556Jameson pretended to accept his mother’s apology since she was blissfully unaware that he was planning to donate her bones on to the local museum once she had died.Screenshot-3560Screenshot-3559As time went on, Jameson and Mika became comfortable with carrying out their daily bathroom business together.  Screenshot-3526That was until the day Jameson forgot to flush the toilet.Screenshot-3535Screenshot-3538 It turned out that Mika was pregnant (which explained some of the nausea), so she decided to throw a little party to celebrate the parasite new life in her stomach.Screenshot-3586However, wires were crossed, and Hayley, who had thought the party was hen-do, ended up hiring a stripper, with quite an unimpressive bulge. Screenshot-3576Screenshot-3570Needless to say, the other girls weren’t too impressed. Screenshot-3569Especially Amaretto, what with her being a lesbian and all that jazz.Screenshot-3578Jameson continued being an awesome acrobat and managed not to overwork himself.  Screenshot-3584He even managed to secure a permanent gig at the local karaoke bar, because the crowd loved him so much.      Screenshot-3592Screenshot-3591Eventually, as nature intended, Mika went into labour.  Screenshot-3608After a grueling day or two, Jameson and Mika left the hospital with twin girls, whom were promptly named Peach and Saffron.Screenshot-3612Screenshot-3611Ricky was so pleased with the birth of his great-great-great granddaughters that he made himself a strawberry snow-cone to celebrate, despite he couldn’t particularly taste it being a ghost and everything.Screenshot-3525‘Unlike me,’ Judd proceeded to brag, before taking a huge bite out from his chocolate Popsicle. Screenshot-3544
