Oh, I thought maybe you were ignoring me.
Eddie: No, I was simply swallowing before responding.
Rather considerate of you.
Eddie: We aren't all slobs like my former step-mother, Sandra.
You remember her? She died when you were quite young.
Eddie: Please even her ghost is a slob. Hard to forget when you have her around as a constant reminder.
So tell me, what do you think about Gladys?
Eddie: She is a splendid woman, with a great mind, a bright future and a good head on her shoulders.
Eddie: She will make a great mother to my future heir or heiress.
Eddie: That is what you have planned isn't it? Otherwise we wouldn't be boyfriend/girlfriend in high school, she wouldn't be at my transition party, and why you asked what I think of her.
Eddie: In that case I agree with your choice.
Let's try a new approach. Remember your fish?
Eddie: *laughs* Yes, the poor thing.
It died and your grandmother flushed it.
Eddie: Yes, I remember, why do you ask?
Everything dies Eddie.
Eddie: Yes, eventually when it is their time, sims die.
Once Gladys gives you an heir or heiress as well as a spare...
Yes. It is the fate of every spouse in the house. Why do you think Jenn had to move out and why Lisa will never move in.
Eddie: I ... I need more time.
Well get used to the idea quick because you two are already engaged and you're out on the prowl for your other baby's momma.
Eddie: I'm what?
Every heir or heiress has a mistress.. a lover.. on the side.
Eddie: I'm a family oriented sim, that goes against my nature!
*scoffs* so is having kids when you're a sim that dislikes children and look how many your grandfather has! Listen, I've been patient with you but the kit gloves come off now Mister. You will marry Gladys. She will have your kids. She will die. You will have a lover-
You'll meet her when you find her. And she too will have your kid.
Eddie: Dad didn't warn me about all of this.
Franklin has yet to get his LTW. He paints but not often enough and even though he carries that stupid guitar around with him, unlike his mom, he never whips it out of his own free will. I have to force him to pull it out.
Eddie: Uh.. Roo?
Eddie: That just sounded...
Wrong? *smirks* Ya.. you'll get used to it.
Eddie: So doing things against our nature... I've noticed this trend occasionally. Like Dad's sudden interest in working out.
*giggles* Yes, I made him. He makes funny faces.
Eddie: What about Granddad and the sprinklers?
Nope that is all him. Christian has reached his LTW and is an elder. For the most part he is hands off. He does what he wants when he wants.
Eddie: So that's what it takes to have freedom? Reach our LTW and give up the reigns to the next heir?
Eddie: Yes, let's do this.
Akara is down at the park with her son, Zebulon. o.O who names their kids Zebulon?
Eddie: I imagine the EA Guys thought it was a good name.
*scoffs* They're wrong. Its a weird name! Anyhow I sent Eddie down to look for his woman again. She's being elusive! I tried her house and she wasn't there. So I sent him jogging around to see if he spots her. He also tried his hand at transmogrifying... it failed a few times.
Eddie: *primal scream*
Eddie: Not any more.
No luck finding his girl, but he did talk with his Aunt Akara.
Eddie: We hit it off great every time we meet, we're friends now.
*scoffs* What you really want is to get closer to her kid.
Eddie: I'm sure I don't understand what it is you're implying.
Eddie: What? I was going to ask, isn't that Israel Monroe?
I uh.. yes, he didn't age well. Glad we didn't bring him in to the family after all.
Oy, I knew it.
Eddie: We all knew.
But.. there were no chimes.
Eddie: Is it really surprising as often as she is over and as often as they're-
Don't say it.
Eddie: *grins* Her mothering instinct is strong.
She's family oriented... like you.
Eddie: *nods* I knew I liked her.
*blinks* What are you up to?
You're a horrible liar.
Eddie: Well if you must know... *rubs hands together grinning mischievously*
*is pulled by game to the house* Whoa, hold that thought.
It's Aiden's transition day.
Eddie: *snatch* Too late.
*shakes head* And he sparkles and transitions. He's a cute little ghost kid.
That night we went to her house. Eddie got to the driveway and stared at it. Still no interaction. *sighs*
Eddie: The house is too crowded anyhow. Granddad is still with us.
It amazes me too. He's freaking older than Ruby & Sherman. Not to mention he puts off eating and sleeping until he's just miserable. *blinks* Hey! Where did you go?
Eddie: I want to let off some steam. Going to kick this trash can over.
Ugh not now, you'll... *sighs* never mind, too late. She's asleep now. *grumbles* Besides, this one wont be moving in. Gladys is.
Eddie: I wish to fix the dishwasher.
Eddie: *blinks* Why not? It's one of my wishes, see?
I need it broken for your future wife. You can mop if you like.
Eddie: *chuckles* Do you see that in my wishes? No, you don't. It's okay, I'm going to bed.
My two favorite sim-men.
Eddie: *looks longingly at his father's work outfit* Are you sure I can't start working yet?
Soon. I want to get your family taken care of. I mean really, what is the hurry? You have your whole adult life and elder life to work. You need kids.
Eddie: Speaking of kids, Evan wants to go to Cecil's house.
Eddie: Cecil, my half-aunt's brother, Cecil Babii.
Oooooooh right! *peeks* He's a teen now, not too bad looking. Okay time to go downtown again.
Oh.my.guh! She's here!
Right there next to your Aunt Akara.
Eddie: Nice choice.
Heh, I thought so. Well no not really.
Eddie: I don't understand.
Well once the heir comes of age, I hop in to CAS and scroll down the list of portraits until one of them talks to me. When they do they're picked.
Eddie: And she spoke to you?
Eddie: What did she say?
She told me that she will make beautiful babies with you and I agreed.
Eddie: *laughs* You are so weird.
Thanks now step it up a bit more, will ya? *perks* Hey, its Fred!
Eddie: My half brother?
The same! He's adorable.
Eddie: Take it from me, teen boys do not want to be referred to as 'adorable'.
The ghost crew are still haunting each other and occasionally the house. *sighs*
Eddie: Its just a matter of time. You'll see. Granddad is sure to pass on, no one lives forever.
*glances at Franklin* Uh.. right.
Eddie: Tell me again why I'm studying this? I don't have a job, I don't require skills for my LTW... I need a job.. in science to be precise.
It is in preparation for your future job. You need skills in gardening, fishing and handiness.
Eddie: I'd rather start my job. I have enough skills for the first few promotions. You're stalling. And I'm not sure why.
Oh look three generations of Babii men.
Eddie: Still jobless, you're still stalling.
*waves a dismissive hand* I uh.. oh wow.
Eddie: What? Dad is always insulting Evan. What's so new about that.
Not that... that! *points to Franklin's new moodlet*
Eddie: You do realize that makes five grandchildren in total. You could have locked Granddad's wish.
Ya I could have, but now he has a new one. *smirks*
Eddie: Ten? Seriously? *laughs* I don't think he'll be around to see them born.
Ugh I hope not. He's 96!
There's the doorbell!! She's here.
Eddie: Splendid. She really is something. I commend you in your choice. Did you know we have family oriented and green thumbs in common?
Nope. I intentionally ignore the traits so its all a surprise to me too.
Eddie: Then I really thank you.
Why is that?
Eddie: *grins* She's a great kisser... among other things.
Chimes! Woots! I uh... uh oh...
Sorry Eddie. Maybe you two should keep those kinds of activities at her house from now on.
Eddie: Again? Now what? What did I do?
Congrats, you're a dad!
Eddie: What? We just heard the chimes. I don't think that is possible, not even for us sims.
No, not Sariana. Gladys, she had a girl. You have an heiress. Now if only Christian would just...
