Oh wow, its finally time.
Christian: Are you sure? She’s gotten up in the middle of the night before and fooled you.
*tries to click on icon* Nope this is definitely it! Odd, I thought it would be harder to watch her die. I think she simply out stayed her welcome.
Christian: *raises an eyebrow* Interesting.
Sherman wakes up, Grimmy shows up, Franklin rushes in and Sherman faints. *pokes Sherman* Seriously even Franklin thinks its getting old.
Christian: Perhaps. Yet he gets an evil moodlet of happiness when he does.
That is true.
From seemingly out of no where Akara shows to join in the mourning. Oh and to my delight the urn was not a simple ugly gray box! Yay! Ruby was in a great mood and she had accomplished her LTW. She was 100 days old before the stubborn woman would finally pass.
Christian: Father is only a day younger. It is going to be hard on the kids losing both grandparents.
He’ll probably go tomorrow. Luckily you wont have to have the death moodlet for four days, you’ll only have it for three.
Christian: Your idea of ‘luck’ astounds me.
Grimmy stuck around again. I followed his movements as he went downstairs. I had forgotten to put away the dollhouse and toy box. I wonder…
Christian: How many times did Father faint that night?
*ponders* Um… once in the bedroom, once in the loft, once downstairs. All from Grimmy’s visit.
Christian: I see.
Anyhow Grimmy didn’t play with the doll house, he picked up the VR glasses instead.
Christian: Yes, it is a disturbing sight to come home to. One I hope not to repeat.
So instead of mourning your mom in any way shape or form, you cooked up your son’s favorite dish (Goopy Carbonara), sat down to a meal with your father and consoled him… sort of.
Christian: *shrugs* I’ve dealt with the heartache that comes with losing your spouse.
Precious was taken a bit prematurely, I suppose. (hey!)
Christian: Why do you do that? That’s the second time you’ve done it. No one gets it…
Its that little video game my daughter plays on her DS. I can’t help it… moving along.
So while you console your father with food and empty words, you let your first wife console you?
Christian: She was always a comfort to me.
Christian: Why does that not reassure me?
Akara was taking the death of her grandmother rather hard. She would freak out, Sherman would console her. Then Sherman would get all mopey and Akara would console him. Rinse, repeat for a good part of their day until I couldn’t take it any more and sent them upstairs.
Christian: This would be another one of those mindless sim moments?
Most definitely. Sherman has always wanted to train someone so here was his chance.
Only something went wrong… Sherman got an odd look on his face and Akara stopped working out. So I tried clicking on Sherman to find out I couldn’t.
Christian: Yes, Father didn’t wait a full day before passing.
Mhm… your mourning moodlet was still on 2 days, so really you’re only going to have to mourn for 2.5 days.
Christian: Let me guess, you’re still considering this ‘lucky’.
Lucky for me, yes. Akara and Sherman had a rather touching moment just before she broke down and cried. Grim showed up moments before you did. I wasn’t sure how you were going to take his death again, you took it so hard the first time.
Christian: This time was harder. I knew you he had nothing in his backpack. This time it would be permanent.
He had a pretty urn just like Ruby. Franklin stopped gardening and joined in the mourning just in time for Sherman to plead with Grimmy. Then Grimmy did something that I completely missed because it happened so fast and I had never seen it before so I was totally taken by surprise.
Christian: What? What did he do? I was so busy mourning, I missed it.
Grimmy used his scythe to kind of… boot Sherman’s ghost away. Almost like he used his scythe like a golf club. It was almost comical.
Christian: You are one sick woman.
Ya true… anyhow Grimmy didn’t stick around this time. And now we have 3 headstones in the backyard.
Christian: The deaths of both of my parents so close together… it was hard to take.
Yes, you kind of lost it. Thankfully Franklin was there for you. It shocked me that you sobbed on his shoulder like that.
Christian: Even more suprising is my son consoled me. He’s a good boy… well no, he’s not, but he does know compassion.
*smirks* Yes so much compassion that he yelled at you after consoling you… and you apologized! *laughs*
Christian: He’s just a teen and I unloaded on him. He’s grieving too and… why ‘did’ I apologize?
Okay I am so ready to end this update for today. Lets do a quick recap of a few important details that I have left out.
Christian: Such as my daughter being utterly miserable because of all the detention?
Yes, I think I’m going to give up on the homework test. She is not failing, she simply keeps getting detention. Also there is your Lifetime Wish being accomplished. Kudos.
Christian: Thank you.
Okay, we’ll end things here.
Christian: At the risk of sounding like a ‘mindless drone sim’, is it time yet?
