I want to preface this entire chapter by saying how excited I am to have been chosen as one of the stories for Boolprop's story of the month this month. I write my chapters more for fun than anything, and so to actually receive an award is amazing. It's also really motivating to me too, because it just makes me want to continue to get better.
When we left off the last chapter, Charlotte and Caleb had just moved into a new apartment after getting married. I decided to change the color scheme a bit now that Courtney has passed on.
So, I encountered a very strange bug at the end of one of the festivals. Instead of all the people attending the festival going home, they all just waltzed right into the apartment. It took quite some time for me to get them all to leave. I really miss the "Ask Everyone to Leave" option we had in The Sims 2.
Since Caleb has pretty much all of the vampire perks, he really doesn't need anything for his needs, which leaves him plenty of time to socialize and play with his daughter.
This also left him lots of time to socialize with his wife, resulting in a second pregnancy.
Of course, Caleb wasn't nearly as excited as Charlotte is about the next baby.
While cooking a meal for his pregnant wife and his daughter, Caleb catches the kitchen on fire. I mean, I guess I can't blame him since he only drinks blood, but still.
This resulted in Charlotte grabbing Scarlet and dashing out the front door with her to ensure they were both safe from the fire.
Majora is now an elder kitty. She is a lot whiter than before, but she's still a gorgeous kitty.
Apparently you can also tell sick sims to throw up in the toilet. Good to know.
Squee ran away, and Scarlet asked her Daddy if "Squee was ever coming home." It broke my heart because she was crying and it was just so sad.
Baby number two is on the way, and I'm secretly hoping he/she is a vampire so I can truly see how the seasons are going to impact my vampires.
It's a girl! Meet baby girl Elena Vatore!
We won't know if she's a vampire until she ages up, however.
Squee has arrived home, and immediately after arriving home aged into an elder cat.
The last couple of days went by pretty quickly, and it's a double birthday Tonight. First up is little Scarlet.
Scarlet aged up with some really weird cheekbones, so that will be interesting.
And it's also little Elena's birthday.
Elena seems to favor her Mom the most and she's really adorable!
It must have just been that angle, because Scarlet really doesn't seem to have that weird of cheek bones. She's really pretty actually.
Elena does not have the vampire thing above her traits, so that means she's not a vampire. Oh well. I love her big eyes.
122 Hakim House is now complete!
Soon after moving into their new home, it's time for Harvest Fest. Which involves gnomes wanting to be appeased.
They then make circles around the television, bathtub, and shower while leaving random seed packs all over the floor. Oh, and they teleport.
NOOOOO. Majora's time has come and I wasn't ready for it. At least she looks peaceful.
Grim stayed around to watch television for a little while.
With it being winter, the first snow was on the ground and so I sent Scarlet to go build a snow pal.
The snow pals in this game are really cute, but very oddly dressed/decorated. But, children and toddlers can tell stories to their snow pal, which was a really nice touch.
I even sent Elena down to play in the snow.
I really love this picture of Scarlet and Elena. It's precious.
It's time for Elena to become a child!
Holy crap, she's one of the most gorgeous sims. I think I may have to use Caleb in a legacy at some point, he clearly has good genes.
Unfortunately, the same night as Elena's birthday, Squee passed away. I was a little more prepared for her death at least.
Somehow, I forgot about the new scouting feature in the game, so I just now had both girls join the scouts. I'm interested to see how this works.
1010 Alto Apartments is now complete as well.
That's where we'll leave this chapter. I apologize that it was shorter than normal, but since I just got story of the month, I thought I should release a chapter. I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope to have another chapter out very soon! In the meantime, check in with me over at BoolProp!
This is my first attempt at the Movin' On Up Challenge.
