That New Look: Reynolds, Round 2

Sorry… this one is kind of long ūüôā

Taja Reynolds is 22

Taja and her roommate G- no, S- no, K-… well, his name wasn’t important. ¬†The point was that they were watching TV… at least G- K- S- whatever thought he was. ¬†Truthfully, he wasn’t very bright. ¬†Little did they know, however, that a strange, well dressed stranger was making his way up the stairs.

“Taj! ¬†How great to see you!” ¬†The strange well dressed stranger gushed. ¬†Taja greeted him fondly… ah, Lave… they’d had some good times together back in college… but she was through with him now… not after what he’d done to her.

“Let me just say, you look ravishing!” ¬†He said. ¬†He was such a charmer… he’d always been… but Taja was not going to let him do this to her this time.

“Why are you here?” ¬†She asked… she didn’t trust him.

“Well… I’ve been fixing up this store in Ardania for a while now… but I realized… I don’t have a stylist… and I remember in college, that’s what you got your degree in… so I was wondering… would you like to join me in my business venture?”

She was at a loss for words… here was a chance to quit her dead end job… maybe do something with her life… but with Lave? ¬†She wasn’t sure if that was a good idea.

But Lave was quite the charmer… and soon enough, he was moving into her apartment… but not in¬†her bed.

It was quite the bed he brought though… but somehow… things got twisted around and then…

His kisses were so gentle, yet powerful. ¬†He caressed her body softly, in a way she hadn’t felt in years. ¬†His gentle touch, combined with his sweet hungry kisses, combined with her want for something meaningful…

The next thing she knew, they were on the bed… his kisses becoming more hungry… she could feel herself giving way to his charm… his power.

The next thing she knew, he was pulling her down on him, and she had no escape… it was pure bliss, yet a curse at the same time.

The store was up and running, and doing quite well. ¬†Business was… not exactly booming but they were doing pretty well, with all of the ugly people that came in.

They even got a wedding shopping spree. ¬†Taja had to admit… maybe this business hadn’t been such a bad idea…

Plus, after all of the customers left, there was plenty of time to do… other things ¬†ūüėČ ¬†And boy were those other things fun!

Welcome to the World : Marshall, Round 2, Fall

Lane and Candi Marshall are 25

Lane snuggled up to Candi, enjoying her warmth.  He smiled as his hand brushed her stomach, his son was in there.

“Lane, baby?” ¬†Candi murmured.

“Yes darling?”

“Can you make me a sandwich babe, I’m really hungry.”

“Sure.” ¬†He sighed, easing his way out of bed.

God, he’d be glad when this was over.

He eased his way out of bed, and prepared the sandwich, getting ready for work as well.

He kissed her good-bye before he left, leaving her home alone, but not for long. ¬†Doctor Regin and her interns Danielle and Kelsey were coming in around ten o’clock.

Candi sighed as she gazed in the mirror. ¬†She was huge. ¬†She looked like a volleyball, the hormones had done weird things to her hair, and her boobs- well, let’s not even start on that subject.

She greeted Claire in her pajamas, not even bothering to get dressed.

“Hi there little baby! ¬†Don’t be causing you’re mother trouble now!” ¬†Claire said to her stomach.

Candi laughed.

“Thanks Claire, are Danielle and Kelsie on their way?”

“Yes, they should be here soon.”

Candi served some fruit, trying to be healthy and get in those anti-oxidants!  After all, she was in the presence of a doctor.

Kelsie really liked it, she was spilling food all over the place.

“Kelsie! ¬†Could you be a little less… piggish?” ¬†Claire chastised.

“What? ¬†I’m just trying to prepare her for the mess that a baby brings. ¬†At least I’m not doing anything from the bottom half. ¬†That’s like toxic waste.”

“T-toxic waste?” ¬†Candi stuttered. ¬†Maybe this baby thing wasn’t all it was cracked up to be.

“Dear, you’ll be fine. ¬†I’ve had three kids, and I look fine, and I’m sure you’ll get your figure back soon.” ¬†Claire reassured her.

Candi was feeling really nervous now.

“You know, just don’t let them crawl into a toxic waste facility or anything.”

“Oh dear God. ¬†Lane’s going to kill this baby.” ¬†Candi murmured.

Lane returned home from work around 7:30, a proud man. ¬†He’d been promoted, to Junior Executive no less.

Candi was ecstatic, but¬†apparently, too much excitement isn’t always a good thing.

“Oh my God! ¬†What the hell is happening?” ¬†Candi grunted.

“The baby’s coming!” ¬†Danielle screamed.

“What are we going to do!” ¬†Kelsie screamed back.

“I- Thought- You- Guys- Were- Doctors!” ¬†Candi grunted.

“Let me change out of my suit. ¬†You can keep it in there a little longer Candi! ¬†It’s only been in there for 8 freaking months!” ¬†Lane hollered.

“We’re only INTERNS!” ¬†Kelsie screamed back.

Thankfully, Doctor Regin was still there.

After hours of a hard labor, little Rhett Marshall was born into the world, weighing a nice 7 pounds, 6 ounces, he was a healthy, happy baby.

“That was incredible!” ¬†Kelsie gasped.

“Congratulations¬†Mrs. Marshall, you’re son is perfectly healthy.” ¬†Claire assured her.

“I- I just had a baby!” ¬†Candi gasped, still amazed.

Lane walked towards her, a huge grin across his face.

“Girl, you’d better change the color of that¬†play-mat.” ¬†Danielle commented.

Lane cradled the little baby in his arms, awe and wonder in his eyes.

“Hey there Rhett. ¬†How ‘ya doing?”

Rhett cooed.

“He heard me! ¬†He heard me! ¬†Think of all the things we can do! ¬†Go to the park… play baseball… watch Sports!”

“That’s great babe… just don’t take him anywhere near a toxic waste facility.” ¬†Candi said.

Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Lane Marshall on the birth of their first child and son, Rhett Marshall.

Happy Surprises : Gates, Round 2: Summer/Fall

Amanda Carlson is 29, Logan Gates is 34, and Micah Gates is 14

Amanda fed the fish, sighing as they floated by. ¬†She wished she could do that, just float around, you know? ¬†She was settling in nicely to the Gates home thought, and Logan finally got to see her in something other than her horrible work clothes. ¬†They’d been together about a year now, and although nothing was really different in their relationship, she didn’t mind.

“Hey Amanda, check this move out! ¬†I look like MJ right?” ¬†Logan called, Amanda walked over, laughing at his attempted Thriller moves. ¬†Micah groaned and kept on exercising. ¬†He was starting High School, and hoped to try out for one of the sports teams there. ¬†Logan was pretty proud of his son, and hoped that maybe he could earn some scholarships.

“Pillow fight!” ¬†Amanda yelled, pelting Logan with pillows. ¬†Soon there were feathers flying all over the house, and Micah was groaning. ¬†Why were old people so gross when they flirted?

“Will you guys take it outside?” ¬†Micah finally yelled, quite fed up by all of this lovey dovey ness. ¬†They complied, continuing outside. ¬†As Logan kissed her palm lightly, Amanda felt her stomach flutter. ¬†Surely this was the man for her.

The next day, Amanda was in the bathroom when she heard Logan call her name.

“I’m in the bathroom, don’t come in!” ¬†She yelled.

Of course, he ignored her.

She quickly shoved the pregnancy test out of sight as he walked in, and then bent down on one knee.

“Amanda Carlson, you are an amazing woman, and my son doesn’t seem to hate you, and I certainly don’t. ¬†Will you marry me?” ¬†He asked, presenting a gold ring. ¬†Not exactly the most romantic proposal ever, but Amanda was putty in his hands.

They hugged, but as Logan looked over his shoulder, he noticed the small white stick, half shoved behind the toilet.

“Amanda… is that what I think it is?” ¬†He asked.

She nodded, and bent over to pick it up.  Two pink stripes.

She looked up, in shock.

“I’m… pregnant.” ¬†She whispered.

Logan was stunned.

“Wait… it’s mine right?”

She laughed.

“Of course it is! ¬†Remember the other night…”

“Oh…¬†definitely¬†mine.”

**********

The following weeks were a flurry of baby equipment, house remodeling plans, and then… the dreaded bridal shower.

“Oh my gosh, we just have to get you a fabulous dress, especially before you start showing!” ¬†Candi squealed.

“You know, I heard that babies are born healthier if the mother has nice wedding gifts.” ¬†Danielle joked.

Nora laughed.

Micah and Logan escaped to the backyard.

“How much longer dad, I don’t think I can take this any longer.” ¬†Micah drawled.

Logan smiled.

“Soon.”

“Thank God!”

Their wedding is planned for this winter, so it should be pretty soon ūüėÄ

Telling : Marshall, Round 2, Summer

So, stupidly, I forgot to change the Maxis seasons, so it starts in Summer and ends in Spring… grrr… ¬†So this is the first three months, but it’s summer, not fall.

Candi Marshall is 25, Lane Marshall is 25

She was practising what she would say to him, when she told him the news. ¬†She hoped he took it well… but what if he didn’t?

“Hey darling, what are you doing?” ¬†He asked her, walking in right behind her. ¬†She jumped. ¬†Had he heard?

“Oh… just practicing a speech for work… you know.”

He bought it, nodding his head.

She grabbed a bowl of cereal and gobbled it down.  She was so hungry, all of the time.  How had he not noticed?

Then she moved to the keyboard, absentmindedly tapping out a lullaby.  She shook herself out of her reverie.  He might hear.

Soon enough she couldn’t hide it anymore though, her stomach was just getting too big. ¬†She waited until he returned home from work, smiling. ¬†He’d gotten another promotion.

“Baby, do you remember a few months ago… when I went to the doctor because I was feeling sick?” ¬†She began.

“Yeah, why? ¬†Is everything all right?” ¬†He said, concerned. ¬†He started to walk towards her. ¬†Now or never. ¬†She had to tell him.

“Well… I wasn’t sick. ¬† I’m… I’m pregnant.” ¬†She burst out. ¬†His eyes widened in shock as he came towards her.

Now he was truly seeing her for the first time. ¬†She’d just gotten so big over night… how had he not noticed.

“Lane… are you mad at me?” ¬†She whispered.

“No! ¬†Why would you think that?” ¬†He replied,¬†aghast.

“You-you said that you didn’t want kids yet.”

“Yes, I know, but I don’t object to having one now!” ¬†He replied.

He leaned in towards her stomach, patting it softly.

“Hey there little guy! ¬†It’s your daddy speaking! ¬†How are you today?” ¬†He asked her belly, jumping back when he felt the baby kick.

“I’m so happy.” ¬†Candi said simply, staring into his eyes.

He stared back, his eyes shining with happiness.

“Me too darling, me too.”

She was glad she’d told him.
