1.9 Unthinkable!


   Prom night! I was so excited. Dad had sat me down and had 'the talk' rather embarrassingly, I mean really? I've only kissed a boy once, and that didn't go down well, so why the hell would I do more??

   Anyway, all sorts of crazy stuff had happened, so I rang my bestie to talk it over the next morning.
   "Can you believe Misty Hague was wearing the same as me?" I giggled. "I couldn't afford to buy a prom dress, so I thought the last thing that would happen was that someone would be wearing the same as me!"
   "I know! But don't worry, like, you pulled it off soooo much better!" Maria laughed with me. "And anyway, yours was a, like, much better colour to go with the, like, decor! How did you know? Like, did you get on the planning committee?"
   "No!" I laughed again. I'd been lucky and worn a green dress that matched well with the under-the-sea theme, Misty's dress had been red.
   "I saw Westly went off with Laura?" Maria changed to a more sore subject, I'd had to tell her about the kiss incident, but I'd made her swear to act like she didn't know.

   "Yeah, I saw." I responded. "He avoided me all night, and I mean like avoided me. Like, really obviously went out of his way to not be near me. After that I just don't care anymore. I'm over him. I'm just sad he ruined a perfectly good friendship..."
   "Good!" Maria chirped. "I'm glad my stupid brother doesn't have the power to ruin my best friend! But seriously? Laura Avilla?? Isn't she, like, the school slut?" I laughed. "I mean it! I'm pretty sure she goes after anything with a heartbeat."
   "Oh, I'm sure she does!" I agreed.
    "So what about Ethan?" She pushed. Ethan was this guy I'd been texting since the whole thing with Westly.

   "Well, I don't know!" I was being honest, I really didn't know. "I mean, when we were texting I bought prom up, and he never asked me. And then when we got there, he was all over me, like getting me drinks and snacks and complimenting me..."
   "Well I know! That's, like, why I left you two alone!"
   "Yeah, well, eventually I had to go to the bathroom, plus he was really winding me up being so clingy! When I came back out he was on the dance floor practically assaulting any girl in sight! I think he must've tried it with Abi, that's why Marlon ended up in that fight..."
   "Oh my twallan, drama! I didn't even know there was a fight? When was that?"
   "Right after you'd claimed your crown, Mrs. Prom Queen! Who nominated you?"
   "I don't know, I thought you had?? But anyway, Chad, Mr, Prom King... Well, he's a good kisser..."
   "WHAT?!?! Tell me more!!"


    The day I'd been dreading had crept up on me. My oldest baby was no longer a baby. All the things we'd been through together, homelessness, tantrums, first steps, first words, first days at school, pets, sisters.... She's stood strong through it all. Without meaning to she'd made me the woman I am today, she was the one I'd pushed myself for. If I hadn't had her I wouldn't have got myself together when my mum had kicked me out, I'd never have dared to move to a new city and rent a trailer off a dodgy guy in a warehouse, but I'd needed to put my baby under shelter. And look how she'd turned out! All the mistakes I'd made... It hadn't mattered. I felt so happy, yet so sad, like a part of me was dying as my daughter blew those candles out. But now I didn't have a baby to look after, I had a friend to confide in. I had to think of what I'd gained...

   And she was a beautiful achievement. I couldn't stop cheering, long after everyone else had stopped. I think Geneva was a little embarrassed, and young Kenyon thought it was hilarious....

   That night, the unthinkable happened. Some creep picked the lock on our door! I heard him sneak past the bedroom window, and after glancing out at how he was dressed I'd managed to call the police before he made it through the door. It was the door opening that woke Geneva. I told her I'd rang the police, but she insisted.

   She went out and confronted him! She wrestled him to the ground! And although he managed to push her off him, she'd kept him occupied long enough for the police to come and arrest him. It was then I realised she really was a grown up, and definately ready to be a police officer!

   As the officer told me herself, after I'd sent Geneva to bed and waited while the officer had got the theif to the car.

   Before we knew it, it was graduation! And graduating top of her class, I knew Geneva would make the squad easily. How did someone who never went to school end up creating a person as clever as my daughter?? I guessed her father must've been brainy, Aria was definately like her father, always on her phone to someone secret, so I worried Becca might be like me. I'd have to pay extra attention to her, make sure she didn't end up dropping out of school...

    We settled into a new routine. Geneva wasn't earning a lot yet as she was doing her training course, so she still lived with us. She intended to get a place with Maria when they could both afford it. But for now she spent most of her time at the gym keeping fit.

   The other two would go to school all day, of course, and in the evenings Ernesto would help them with theie homework and then they'd play silly games while I was out singing. I admit, I felt a little left out that I wasn't a part of the games, but I loved that the girls had a father who was as attentive as him. My little family was perfect.


Hehe, I like all the prom pop-ups. I think I wrote most of them in. Except that Geneva was prom queen, but I didn't want her to be so Maria was because something had to happen to her!

Geneva gained the 'brave' trait, hence the robber event...
Becca gained 'friendly' when she secretly aged up. (That's her in the middle of the graduation picture. And yes, that is Ernesto in that strange outfit chatting on his phone, that's apparently his formalwear...) 

The kinda sad thing about Ernesto, is that he and Nazari have both had a wish to marry locked since Aria was born. But they've never been able to even ask to go steady, and I have no idea why. They're both on 100% relationship and completely in love, by this point Nazari even has the 'faithful' rep (Ernesto doesn't, but if you remember he had a few women on the go at the start) it's really sad that it seems unlikely they'll ever get that wish granted now :( 


  1. Aww, cute <3 It's sweet to see the kids all play together ^-^

    So, Geneva's heir I'm assuming, and her career is one of the law enforcement paths?

    ;-; that an is so sad! Silly question and I'm sure you've already done this; but neither have any boyfriends or girlfriends do they?

    1. Hehe :)

      Humm... You'll have to wait and see... ;)

      Nope, it's just a weird glitch. It only affects those two sims, too. Ernesto was able to go steady with his ex, and Nazari has had the option with other sims. It's weird. And sad.

  2. Is Geneva the heir since she's still living with them?

    Nazari looks really scared in the graduation picture. Sure it's her kids she's worrying about and not Ernestos choice of clothing? Because they were bad. When he's girlfriend is that much younger he needs to step his game up to look hot for her ;)

    To bad they can't marry the normal way. I've had that as a bug, but only with sims that can't break up, or ask to be friends either. Sorry that I don't have any advice other than using Nraas for it. Don't think it does anything to the wish though. But you probably already knew that

    1. I'll just go ahead and say no. She's no the heir, but I don't like making it look like everyone leaves school and jumps ship. I like to get everyone and job and make sure they're set up in life. She rolled a want to have the law enforcement career as a child, so I locked it in to give her something to aim towards, and then she actually only stayed living in the house for a day after aging up. She moved out the morning after graduation, I just like making it look like her parents didn't kick her out, bu I didn't get any finacial gain from her as she hadn't started work yet :)

      She actually pulls that face a LOT! I have no idea why, she just constantly looks worried. But yes, when your partner wears clothes like that, why shouldn't she be worried?? :p

      Yeah, I knew about the NRaas way. I just took the glitch as a sign that it wasn't meant to be for them. The couple roll doesn't state they have to be married, so I thought I'd mix things up a bit. Maybe the next couple roll gets a happy ending :)

  3. Awww. Look how far Nazari has come. From homelessness to a perfect little family. <3

    Yay on Geneva's grow up! Once she moves out with her bestie, the house will have a little more room then, h uh?

    How weird they don't get the relationship options! Guess I ought to be glad I skipped that particular bug. :p

    Ernesto's formal wear: xD Those random ITF pants manage to make any outfit more snazzy, don't they? lol

    1. Hehe, so proud of her! :)

      Yea, it'll be good to have some breathing room, even though I've had no issues with the crowding!

      It was a very sad bug, but it made me mix things up. Usually I'd have the couple roll as a married couple, but it was a change for them to just be co-habiting.

      Haha! I guess I hadn't sorted his formalwear when he aged up. I tend to be a bit lazy with elders clothes as they don't hang around forever and often don't have big roles.

  4. I'm still surprised you started this family as a prettacy. Geneva has interesting features, but I think she looks really cute as a teen and even better as an adult since she grew into her face a bit.

    I like that in your story Geneva didn't immediately move out. It just doesn't always make sense story-wise. Most people now live with their parents for a couple years (or indefinitely) until their career takes off.

    I kinda like that Naz and Ernesto never got married. It's more unconventional, and shows something about their characters, I think. Not that they don't love each other, but marriage isn't something that everybody needs. It would be cute if you could stage it when they're elderly.

    1. Me too! I keep forgetting! The woman I started with (Nazari's grandmother), was bright purple with bright red hair and had ginourmous ears and a huge nose with almost no lips. I basically without using mods, pulled all the sliders one way or the other, then I bred with normal townies and it bred out really quick!

      Me too! I moved out the second I could, but the majority of people don't, and some even move out, decide they actually can't afford it and plus mum does laundry so why should I?, so they go back.

      Again, it's just normal these days for couples to just cohabit rather than marry. Plus, like I said, clearly the game didn't want them too. lol.
      Oh <3 I would've loved that! *sniff* I've played past that point now, unfortunately.
