An Introduction: Ferena, Round 3

Phillip and Marietta Ferena are 39, Kalista Ferena is 17,Tyler Ferena is 15, Madin Ferena is 5, Lise Ferena is 1

The day starts out normally.  Phillip washes his hands before getting ready to go out to the fields.

Phillip is the only full scale farmer in Ardania right now, and although the Straight’s have a good idea, they’re no where near being close to producing the amount of produce needed.  They’ll probably just stick to their own garden.

Phillip is also trying to get his two sons into the business.  He’s a little old fashioned, and he’ll admit it, and he doesn’t believe that the fields are any place for a woman.  Madin, his youngest son, has taken to farming quite nicely, and likes to help his Pa out in the fields as much as his mother will let him.

Tyler, his second oldest, isn’t that good however, so they let him stick to fishing.  He isn’t too good at that either, but he’s still slightly better at it than farming, and that’s good enough for Phillip.

Marietta is taking care of their youngest, Lise, at the moment.  Phillip treasures little Lise, because out of their four children, she was the only one who inherited his… er… scarlet locks.

Kalista, his oldest helps out with the cooking while Marietta takes care of Lise.  She’s 17, and will be going off to college next year, and Phillip couldn’t be prouder of her.  She works hard, and works well at home too.

Unlike Tyler who prefers to play pirates in the bathtub rather than do his homework.

Soon the women switch roles, Kalista playing with her little sister and Marietta cooking a last minute dessert.

Marietta has invited the boys’ friends from school and their parents over for dinner, hence all of the cooking.

Dinner is hectic but nice, and Phillip and Marietta are very impressed with their sons’ friends.  Tyler invited Micah Gates, a Sophomore just like him, whose stepmother is the mayor of Ardania, and Madin invited Marco Visenz, the only other boy in the kindergarten class with him this year.  They both seemed very nice, and well-mannered.

Kaylee Visenz is very impressed by Kalista, and offers her a job baby sitting the twins sometimes.  Kalista accepts excitedly, this is the perfect thing she needs for college, she can make some extra cash while taking her classes.

Micah and Tyler engage in an epic game of kicky-bag, sure to be told about for generations to come.

And at the end of the day, Marietta tucks Madin in and reads him to sleep.

A Little Bit of Paradise: Greene, Round 3

Nora Straight is 26, Alon Straight is 32

The hotel, of course, is fabulous.  Alon spared no expense on their honeymoon.  A beach behind them, a little porch, it’s a little bit of paradise.

Alon checks in, and gives Nora some time to unpack their things.  They didn’t really bring that much, they hope to get some souvenirs.

“And now, M’lady, it’s time for some shopping!”  Alon says.  He sure knows the words to a woman’s heart.

They buy some “island friendly” clothes.

Nora buys some gifts.

And Alon tries to buy some jewelry.  He tries, but fails.  Fails miserably.

And then, Alon sees it.  The big Kahuna, the most amazing thing ever.  A FIRE DANCER!!!! Needless to say, he forks out the money for lessons.

And then he performs.  Nora claps, and he tries not to burn himself.  At this, he also fails.  Miserably.

Later that night, they cuddle up to each other, enjoying their time together.  They are happy.

“Nora, my darling, I love you more than anything.”  He says to her.

“And I you.”

Later that night after… stuff… they curl up next to each other to sleep.

Alon wakes at a slight touch from her, and he wraps his arms around her.  Truly a little bit of paradise.

Positively Giddy: Greene, Round 3

Nora Greene is 26, Alon Straight is 32

This morning, Alon tends to the plants.  Nora needs all the time she can get, because today is THE BIG DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!! and boy is she nervous.

For once, Nora has put her hair up differently, and is actually wearing makeup.  She can feel butterflies in her stomach, but these are good ones.  She knows that she loves Alon, and that this is the best decision of her life.

Alon has lots of friends, and they all crowd onto the lot for the wedding.  They decided to do a home wedding instead of a larger one, because their wedding was a little delayed.

They meet under the alter, and at once, all of the nervousness goes away.  It’s just her and Alon, together, and it seems as if there is no one else in the world.

They exchange vows, and rings, but these are only physical things.  They are connected deeper than that.

Carla Fief gives a jump for joy, they’re married!

And Nora can’t help but feel a little unstable, especially after the kiss Alon just gave her!

****************

LOL!  I had no idea Alon had that many friends!  The lot almost crashed, so that’s why it’s kind of short, I couldn’t move the screen very well.  And of course, I just had to sneak some Carla spam in there 😛  Mr. and Mrs. Straight should be having a good time now, and I’m hoping for some handsome offspring 😛  It took forty minutes for me to use SimPE to change Alon’s eyes so they could have kids, so they’d better be good looking!  (I can’t figure out how to set my eyes to default, but if anyone had some tips that’d be nice 😀 )  They’ll be on vacation next update!  (Which will be pretty soon)

All Becoming Clear: Marslin, Round 3

Mina Marslin is 73, Ralph Marslin is 29, Maya Marslin is 27, Lyssa, Anna, and Cameron Marslin are 7

On the outside, everything was fine.  The kids got along great, Lyssa and Anna were fast friends.

They loved their Mamma and each other, especially if there was a bunk bed involved.  But something was not right.

Mina had been taking a hot bath, when she heard something… odd.  Ralph was on the phone in the other room, and she could hear all that he was saying.

“Look, I bailed you out in college when you were in a mess, and it almost ruined me.  Why are you back?’

“Yes, I know it’s been a while since then, and yes, I’m still in the same job.”

“You what?

“Look, I’ll meet you tonight, okay?  Yes, you know where.  I need to change out of my clothes before someone walks in.  Bye.”

Confused, Mina had walked out of the bathroom.

Ralph was changing, and he quickly slammed the drawer shut, but Mina caught a glance at some black and white clothes and a ski mask.  What had her son gotten into?

“Hey mom, how are you?”  He asked her, kissing her on the cheek.  And it came to her.  She hadn’t noticed it because it had been so gradual, but now that she thought about it… over the years Ralph had changed.  Ever since college really.  Slowly he’d become harder, tougher, meaner… disconnected from it all.  Shaking, she walked downstairs to see the children off to school.

The bus came, the children got in, and Mina went back to her room to relax.  And Maya walked into the master bedroom.

“Oh, there you are woman.  I have to go out.”  Ralph said, brushing by her.

“What do you mean you have to go out?  I have work in an hour!  You can’t leave, the kids need to have one of us home when they get home from school!

“My old lady’s home, it shouldn’t be too horrible for them if she’s the only one home.”

“God, what has happened to you over the years?  You’ve changed… and not for the better.”  Maya said, stalking out of the room.

Out in the hall, the confrontation continued.

“You don’t leave until I say so, bitch!”

“You have no reason to talk to me like that!”

Mina could hear everything.  And she didn’t like it.

Suddenly a crack echoed through the house.

“That’ll teach you!”  Ralph exclaimed, a frenzied look on his face.

“Out!  Now!”  Mina screamed.  “You disgust me.”

“Happy to oblidge.”  Ralph sneered.

All Maya could do was cry.

Scoping out the Town: Barrett, Round 3

Michael Barrett is 23, Katherine Andelique

Katherine smiled a smug smile as she walked up to the apartment of CoOp 1.  Hired by the City of Ardania to keep the city safe, she was now stuck with some guy named “Michael Barrett”.  It wasn’t a bad job, at least it paid.  Unfortunately, she had to wear this to work, and act as the cities only police officer (well, Michael was doing that too, so technically she wasn’t the only one).

Later on in the day, Michael arrived home.  Walking into his bedroom to change out of the horrible clothes he was forced to wear, he was in for quite the shock.

“Good afternoon Michael.  It’s been a long day.”

“What in the name of- who the hell are you!”  He replied.  He had no idea who this woman was, and she was sitting on his bed?

“Oh, relax.  My name’s Katherine.  I’m the city of Ardania’s CoOp 2.  We’re on the same team now, and I believe we’re roomies.  I assume the mayor informed you about this?”  She said, snickering.

“What- oh, yes.”

” Nice little feature you’ve got here.”  Katherine replied, pressing a button, causing the bed to light up.  Michael didn’t blush.

“It vibrates too.”  He replied cooly.

“That’s all very nice, I suppose.  But really, it’s good to see you can keep your cool.  It’s going to be fun being your partner.”  She whispered into his ear, before skipping away.  Michael felt chills all over his body, but not in a bad way.  This woman… she was sexy, secure, in control, and working with him.  Maybe this wasn’t such a bad idea after all… especially if she kept wearing clothes like that…

Over the next few months, Katherine took to walking around the house in her underwear, something Michael didn’t entirely mind.  He knew she was trying to tantalize him… but why?  Lately she’d been up late in the night, doing research on a shifty character in town.

“Come on Michael, we’ve got to do some investigating.”  She told him one morning.  Michael stopped mid lift.  What the hell was she wearing?  He was sure as heck not getting into anything near that.  They were just investigating, not going into witness protection.

But apparently, women can get a man to do anything.

At the store, they pretended to be a dating couple, something Michael thoroughly enjoyed.

But what they saw… was disturbing.  Lave Testy, their suspect, was controlling, manipulative, vulgar, and a bit possessive.  The only people he had working for him were woman, and obviously that was for one intent only.  His history… they were pretty sure of… his intent… they hoped he wouldn’t repeat anything….

Ringing of the Bells: Ardania Public School, Round 3

Kelley-Anne Tabile is 76, Katrina Golind is 74, Dalston Golind is 72, Kalista Ferena is 17, Tyler Ferena is 15, Ellissen Giardan is 15, Hannah Lordin is 15, Miriam Regin is 15, Matt Regin is 7, Carla Fief is 5, Laura Visenz is 5, Marco Visenz is 5, Yu Aderine is 7, Cameron Marslin is 7, Lyssa Marslin is 7, Anna Marslin is 7, Micah Gates is 15, Madin Ferena is 5

It’s the first day of school this fall for Ardania, and everyone is getting in.  Kelley-Anne Tabile, the school principal walks in behind her sister, Katrina Golind and thinks of all the days to come.

In class two, or the high school room, taught by Dalston Golind, Katrina’s husband, the teenagers are hanging out before class begins.  Kalista Ferena, the only senior this year, and her younger brother Tyler play a quick game of rock paper scissors, while Hannah Lordin gives her good friend Micah an affectionate noogie.   Miriam Regin watches on, pondering of ways to plant her lips on Micah’s, and Elissen Giardin looks around the classroom, it’s not too bad here.

In the Primary room, Carla and Laura Visenz get to talking, while Marco Visenz, Laura’s twin brother, looks on.  Does Carla have cooties?  He hopes not, then she might contaminate Laura.

Cameron Marslin and his triplet sister Lyssa play a game of cops ‘n robbers, and it looks to be going pretty well.

And Yu Aderine, Matt Regin, and Madin Ferena, have an animated chat.  Matt loves the fact that he and Madin’s hair is styled the same way, but the dragon on Yu’s shirt is totally awesome.

Mr. Golind arrives in class, and his students take their seats, sadly in for a day of learning.

Cameron is seated next to Carla, and attempts to copy her classwork.  When she rejects him, he consoles himself with the fact that Marco has told him the secret that Carla has cooties.  He just hopes that his sisters don’t have it too, then he might get them!

Luckily, Lyssa comes to his rescue, flashing him some notes across the classroom.  Mrs. Golind doesn’t notice, she’s too busy walking into a wall.  Marco watches her closely, the every inconspicuous spy, trying to figure out if she’s got Cooties too.  Anna dutifuly takes her notes though, Mrs. Golind is walking to a wall right behind her you know!

As the day progresses, the exciting game of Cops ‘n Robbers spreads.

Miriam tries to put the moves on Micah, but he seems a bit confused.  Just last year he’d thought she was the hottest thing since the oven, but now he’s just finding himself not that interested.

Tyler gives Ellissen a noogie, he saw Hannah doing it, and it seems like a good way to meet the opposite gender.  Ellissen begs to differ.

But in the end, it does look like someone of the opposite gender succeeded in getting Ellissen’s attention.  Micah leaves school feeling very fulfilled, and Ellissen leaves thinking that perhaps all boys aren’t that bad.  She just hopes she doesn’t have the Cooties anymore 😛

Lots of kids, as you can see.  You’ll meet the Ferena’s soon, and Ellissen, sadly, is one of my “non-playable playables”.  She doesn’t actually live on a lot, I just made a bunch of good-looking teenagers for the heck of it.  You’ll see once some of the kids age up, I have one hot looking boy up ready to be played 😛
