Update 10.5 – Moving Along

Standard

The last time I updated, my wife and I (we were both artificially inseminated), went into labor! My wife delivered her baby first, naming it Kasey. Then, I went into labor, with a lot more trouble… So what happened? This is gonna’ be a short and sweet update, as it is my final entry to this legacy!

After a really difficult labor and pregnancy, I finally was able to deliver a healthy baby boy, Kaleb! Meet the two newest members of the Defesco Legacy, Kasey and Kaleb. Both Maddy and I had boys!

Kasey is on the left, crying and Kaleb is on the right, smiling.

Welcome to the world Generation 11!!

04-12-15_5-15 PM

 

Maddy was a great mother to our two sons. I feel like she was a better parent then me, who was always focused on my career.

04-12-15_5-16 PM

 

My mischievous habits actually must have worn onto the good Maddy because when offered a choice between the Villain or Diamond Agent path, she chose the Villain path! Maddy was now a double agent, making $191/hr.

She too was now forced to practice the mischief skill.

04-12-15_5-24 PM

 

As quickly as Kasey and Kaleb came into this world, it was time to celebrate their birthday!

First up, Maddy’s baby boy, Kasey. Kasey rolled the self-assured trait and the artistic prodigy aspiration.

04-12-15_5-41 PM

A couple of hours later (Kasey and Kaleb were exactly 2 hours apart), Kaleb also aged into a child, rolling the perfectionist trait and artistic prodigy aspiration.

04-12-15_5-43 PM

Kaleb drew a great interest in drawing pictures. And, being the great mother she was, Maddy encouraged Kaleb while he was painting. This helped him advance quickly through the creative skill.

04-12-15_8-05 PM

I still threatened anyone who dared to step foot on our porch… Even the old ladies!

“Hello kind neighbor,” the old lady greeted me.

“Get off my porch! I don’t wanna’ buy any cookies! I’ll steal from both you and your family, if you ever come back,” I threatened her and brushed her off my deck.

I loved being mean to people. Plus, I needed to be evil for my job.

04-17-15_8-57 PM

But, there was one person I refused to be mean to…

The love of my life, my soul mate, my wife…

Maddy.

04-17-15_9-00 PM

Conor still visited often. He said that he really wanted to have a relationship with Kaleb and Kasey, since, he really was their father.

Conor would have been a great father, I could tell.

04-17-15_9-07 PM

 

Unfortunately, I could not take it anymore. He was becoming too invasive and too comfortable around the boys. They were Maddy and I’s kids… Not his.

I turned on Conor one night.

“Conor, you really need to leave. You’re not welcome here anymore. Kaleb and Kasey are mine. Now beat it,” I screamed.

“But, I just want to see how they’re doing. I love them,” he responded.

“Oh no you don’t!!” I attacked Conor.

I guess you could say being evil was in my blood.

04-17-15_9-09 PM

 

At least I learned something from my father, Indio… How to fight!

I beat Conor up!

I don’t think we’d be seeing him anytime soon.

04-17-15_9-10 PM

Maddy received another sweet promotion to [Redacted], with a pay of $278/hr. Everything she did was top-secret, so I didn’t really know much of what she did.

04-17-15_9-19 PM

Kaleb literally refused to put his violin down. He’d take it in the bath with him, to bed with him, even to school with him!

He surely was one creative-fella.

04-17-15_9-23 PM

Hooray for another promotion! I was now a Safe Cracker, with a pay of $319/hr.

04-17-15_9-30 PM

Kaleb completed his first childhood aspiration, only 5 sim days in! As a reward, he earned the creatively gifted trait.

I was a proud momma’ already.

04-17-15_9-33 PM

 

I was so in love with my life, and the only three people in my life that meant something to me. I could not believe that each day, Maddy and I manage to grow a little bit closer. I had no doubt that anything would ever separate us.

04-18-15_11-50 AM

 

Whenever I had free time (which was rare), I enjoyed sharing my passion for books with the kids. I loved reading to them.

04-18-15_11-53 AM

Believe it or not, we actually had a very close family. We loved spending free time together. On the weekends, we would visit the park and play for hours.

04-18-15_12-00 PM

We even enjoyed a nice family picnic, on this pleasant spring day.

“Ma, this is some great grilled chicken!” Kasey complimented me.

“Thanks sweetie,” I winked at Kasey.

“Very delicious,” Kaleb added.

“Stellar, just like everything you do,” Maddy smiled.

04-18-15_12-04 PM

 

We cherished every second of the weekend, spending as much time together as we could. We were such a goofy family.

I farted, held my nose, and blamed it on Kaleb. “Awww man! Kaleb, you wreak!”

“What? Mom! That wasn’t me,” Kaleb giggled.

“Ewwww!” Kasey complained. “I smell it all the way over her!”

“Woops, sorry,” Maddy joked, acted like she was the one that passed gas.

We all started giggling.

04-18-15_12-16 PM

 

Now that Kasey completed his first aspiration, he was working towards his second of Whiz Kid. My little chemist.

04-18-15_12-35 PM

Maddy earned her final promotion! She was now a Supreme Villain, with a stunning pay of $474/hr!

Man, did she look sexy in her uniform?

04-18-15_12-39 PM

 

Once again, my amazing child Kaleb completed his aspiration! With this, Kaleb earned the mentally gifted trait. With four days to spare, Kaleb decided not to select another aspiration.

04-18-15_12-49 PM

Sorry for being so boring this update. Not much is going on. But, I did manage to earn a promotion to “The Brains”, and I now made $383/hr. At last, I only had one promotion left!

04-18-15_12-53 PM

 

Eventually, it was Maddy and I’s birthday.

First up, Maddy!

04-19-15_9-11 AM

Ahhhh… Elderhood, at last.

04-19-15_9-11 AM-2

The next night, it was the kids birthday too!

First born, Kasey aged into a handsome teenager.

Kasey rolled the foodie trait and successful lineage aspiration. With this, he also received the domestic trait.

04-19-15_9-16 AM

Last up, my son, Kaleb aged into a wonderful teenager. Kaleb rolled the goofball (like me!) trait and fabulously wealthy aspiration, as well as the business savvy trait.

04-19-15_9-17 AM

So, this is where my story finally concludes. I hope I impressed you with my twists and turns. I still have no idea how I managed to keep this legacy alive. I had serious doubts at times. Now, it’s time for the Defesco legacy to continue… Enjoy Generation 11!

Family Portrait 26

Update 10.4 – A Plan at Last

Standard

I left off the last update finally getting married to the girl of my dreams, Madelynn. So now that we’re getting ready to adopt a child to bring in generation 11, what’s been going on?!

After my father passed, I had no one around to argue with. I actually started turning evil, partly because of what my dad had done to me, and partly because I needed to be mean for work.

I harassed an old lady that came to our doorstep one night.

“Excuse me kind young lady,” the old lady started in a melancholy tone. “I’m selling chocolates with my granddaughter. Would you like to buy some?”

“What Granny?! What are you doing here?! Get off my damn front step. And never come back again!” I yelled.

She flinched back a little bit.

“Beat it!” I yelled louder.

She was literally shivering in her clothes.

04-11-15_10-04 AM

 

“Oh, wait, before you go,” I had a trick up my sleeve. “I have to tell you a secret.”

The granny tensed up, and leaned in to hear my secret.

“Do you have a hearing aid in?” I asked her.

“Uhhh… No, why?” She asked, confused.

“Because you’re gonna’ need one now!” I honked a loud blow horn in her ear.

“OWWWW!” She screamed and ran away in dismay.

“Beat it, you old bag!” I screamed.

I don’t think we’ll be seeing her ever again.

04-11-15_10-06 AM

 

The next day, Maddy and I ate breakfast and sipped on our coffee together. I was so excited for our adoption this week. At last, generation 11 would be here!

“Are you ready to get our child this week?!” I asked, excitedly.

“Uhhhhh… About that,” I heard disappointment in Maddy’s voice. “That was all a cover up. I just pulled that out of the blue. I didn’t think you actually wanted to adopt…”

I felt my heart-sink when Maddy said this. Now what? We were back to square one.

“Oh…” I mumbled.

04-12-15_9-08 AM

 

That night, I cried in Conor’s arms. We really were close friends now. But trust me, we would never be more than that. I can’t emphasize enough how I had no interest in boys whatsoever. Plus, he was gay.

“Conor,” I whined. “Maddy said that she doesn’t wanna’ adopt anymore.”

“Awww, Jewel. It’s okay! It’s really hard adopting. Maddy’s been through adoption herself. She knows the feeling of not having biological parents. That’s probably why. Don’t be offended,” Conor rubbed my back, cheering me up.

“Thanks Conor,” I wiped the tears off my face.

04-12-15_9-13 AM

 

The next morning, I talked things over with Maddy again.

I held her hands and said, “Maddy, I was really devastated when you told me you didn’t want to adopt anymore. I thought we were set on that… But I did talk to Conor, and I understand why.”

“I’m really sorry Jewel. I thought you were just playing along with me that night when we told Conor of our plans. I love you, but I just can’t go through that pain.” Maddy explained.

“But. But, what are we supposed to do now… I need to have a kid.”

“I’m not really sure babe,” Maddy explained. “That’s just part of the consequences of being married to a woman. There’s nothing much we can do.”

I felt the tears build up in my eyes again. My father was right. I had let the Defesco legacy down.

04-12-15_9-18 AM

 

On a happier note, I ended up completing my Nerd Brain aspiration! As a result, I gained the handy bonus trait.

04-12-15_9-26 AM

I even managed to snag a promotion to Getaway Driver, with a pay of $273/hr! I was really making the big bucks now. I actually enjoyed me job too. As a criminal, it was okay to be a goofball and to harass people; two things I loved to do.

04-12-15_10-10 AM

At long last, it was time to celebrate Maddy and I’s birthday! We invited over Conor and his boyfriend Soren for a little party.

First up, Maddy aged into an adult.

04-12-15_10-18 AM

 

Following in Maddy’s footsteps, I made a wish as I blew out my candles.

‘I wish to have a baby some day!’ I closed my eyes and blew with all of my breath. Suddenly, I felt a whirl of air circle around me.

Hmmmm. That was strange.

Well, let’s see what adulthood has in store for me! I only have 20 sim days left to bring in the next generation.

04-12-15_10-19 AM

 

After I blew out my candles, I quickly ran out the door. I had work.

But, Maddy, Conor and Soren stayed back and enjoyed the rest of the party. They talked for a very long time, and just as I was getting home from work, they were finally leaving.

I wonder what they talked about for so long.

04-12-15_10-21 AM

 

Usually, when I come home from work, Maddy is asleep. But, this time, when I walked in the door, she was waiting for me with a huge smile on her face.

Maddy swooped me back, “I have some good news!” She exclaimed.

“Oh do you? What is it?” I asked immediately.

“I have a plan,” Maddy murmured.

“A plan? For what?” I was lost.

“To have a child, silly!” Maddy bolted back, and suddenly, I felt my heart pounding.

“WHAT?!” I exclaimed. “Tell me! Now!”

“Okay, okay. But, I do not know if this will work… So, after you left, Conor and his boyfriend stayed here for a while. We talked for a very long time. And, Conor suggested something… Artificial insemination,” as soon as Maddy said the idea, I was instantly interested. “Conor said ‘I have no use for it, so what if you guys had my kid?’… So, what do you think?”

“YES!” I blurted. “YES YES YES!! I was so excited. This was even better than adoption. Now, the child would actually have my DNA.

“Okay, well, it’s too late to make an appointment now, but tomorrow.”

Finally, things were falling into place. It all made sense now. My birthday wish came true. That’s why I felt the whirl of air around me. That’s why Soren and Conor stuck around so long. This was perfect! Not to mention Conor was a hottie, our baby would be perfect. And, I wouldn’t be cheating on Maddy!

04-12-15_10-24 AM

 

The next morning, I called and set up an appointment. Luckily, they had an appointment later that day! We already had a donor, so the lady said we’d be in and out in no time.

04-12-15_10-26 AM

After the appointment, Conor, Maddy and I sat on the couch patiently waiting. We had to wait a few hours for fertilization to occur, hopefully.

“I’m so nervous!” I screeched.

“Don’t be. Everything’s gonna be okay,” Maddy reassured me.

“You’ll be great parents. I’m glad I could help.”

04-12-15_10-31 AM

Finally, it was time…

I went to the bathroom, and took my pregnancy test.

As I watched the pink dots blink across, I felt my heart flutter.

04-12-15_10-33 AM

Negative…

I almost cried. What if I was too old to conceive?…

I walked out of the bathroom with a frown.

“Nothing,” I sighed.

“Awww. I’m sorry baby,” Maddy rubbed my shoulders…

Luckily, we decided at the appointment that it’d be best for both Maddy and I to be artificially inseminated! So, it was her turn!

I waited out in the hallway, when suddenly I heard a screech.

“PREGNANT!” Maddy yelled.

At last, generation 11 was on its way.

04-12-15_10-35 AM

 

At the appointment, the doctor assured us that we had a very low chance of getting pregnant because of our age and the process itself has poor results.

Fortunately, after I called the doctor back, he said I could try again, so I went in right away.

After waiting the set amount of time, it was time to take a pregnancy test again.

My heart pounded even faster this time.

Suddenly, I saw the pink smiley.

Now both, Maddy and I were pregnant, only separated by about 12 hours! I was full of joy.

04-12-15_10-37 AM

 

The doctor had explained the adverse side-effects of the procedure, and I experienced every bit of the pain.

The nausea and vomiting seemed to never end.

This pregnancy really was rough.

04-12-15_10-40 AM

Luckily, Maddy’s pregnancy was going a lot smoother and she was always there to comfort me.

As I wiped the vomit away from my mouth and sat on the couch, she turned me around and started massaging me back.

“Just calm down, baby,” Maddy soothed my soul.

I’m really not sure what I’d do without her.

04-12-15_10-42 AM

Maddy really knew how to make me feel better…

Two pregnant ladies woo hooing!!

04-12-15_10-43 AM

 

Unfortunately, the vomiting continued throughout the pregnancy. I started worrying that something was wrong.

04-12-15_10-44 AM

It was very interesting being pregnant the same time as my wife.

We often compared belly sizes.

“Ugh, I am so much bigger than you,” Maddy complained.

“No you’re not! Besides, you’re farther along.”

04-12-15_10-51 AM

 

We even rubbed each other’s tummy’s, excited to finally meet our children.

“How’s my little baby doing?” I asked as I rubbed Maddy’s tummy.

I could not wait for our son(s) and/or daugther(s) to be here. This was so exciting!

I couldn’t help but worry that we’d both have multiples though. That was another side-effect of the procedure.

04-12-15_10-52 AM

 

Even Conor stopped by to check in on us every now and then. He said that he didn’t want to be “too invasive”.

“How’s that little baby doing in there?” He asked, rubbing my stomach.

“Oh, she’s moving all around!” I responded, hoping I had a girl.

Conor was the perfect man to make this donation. He gave Maddy and I privacy and approved not to call the babies “his”.  Although Conor would always be a part of their life, Maddy and I were their parents; not Conor.

04-12-15_10-57 AM

 

As our due dates quickly approached, both Maddy and I started bursting with excitement.

“I wonder who’s gonna’ go into labor first!” Maddy blurted.

“Probably you,” I told her. “You were first to conceive.”

“True, but you never now…”

Make your bets now, who will deliver first?!

04-12-15_11-00 AM

 

We compared belly’s for one last time.

Don’t tell her I said this, but Maddy clearly had me beat…

04-12-15_11-04 AM

And then, it was time!

Of course, Maddy went into labor first. I was working when it happened.

04-12-15_11-08 AM

 

However, I left work 3 hours early as I went into labor just two hours after Maddy!

At last, our two (hopefully) babies were on the way!!

04-12-15_11-09 AM

 

Maddy and I decided to both sleep off the labor pains. Labor went by in a breeze, surprisingly.

04-12-15_11-11 AM

Then, Maddy started pushing. She screamed and screamed, and finally…

“Meet your first child, Kasey Defesco,” Maddy woke me up.

I smiled into my newborn’s eyes.

04-12-15_11-11 AM-2

 

Until, it was time for me to start pushing.

Unfortunately, my delivery was not as simple either. There were some complications…

04-12-15_11-14 AM

That’s where I’ll leave it off for now! What further complications followed my delivery? How will our lives change with newborns in the house? What gender is Kasey?! Find out in the next update.

 

Update 10.3 – The Fun Never Ends

Standard

Let’s get back to my wonderful story as the generation 10 heir! But first, a little recap: I grew very close to my girl best friend, Madelynn and eventually, I realized I was in love with her. I feared telling my father and sister about my secret, but I decided to tell my sister, who surprisingly accepted my secret. After aging into a young adult, I felt it was time to tell my father, who did not accept my secret so well. In fact, he fought me, and we became enemies. Just to put a cherry on top of the sundae, I decided to propose to my girlfriend in front of my father. Of course, she said yes! Afterwards, I started to spin out of control, picking up bad habits, and eventually becoming a criminal. So now, let’s see what happened!

There was one thing that Maddy and I did not have in common. Maddy was in the Secret Agent career track and I was in the criminal career track. So, ultimately, Maddy was working with people trying to bust criminals! I actually found this kind of funny and ironic. I’m not gonna’ lie though, she was able to get me out of a lot of trouble.

04-04-15_1-32 PM

Indio and I still were not on good terms. I refused to call Indio my father. He did not act like a dad nor did he treat me like his daughter.

“I can’t believe you let the Defesco’s down!” He yelled in my face.

“I didn’t. That’s where you’re wrong, and you’re a selfish little ****! Don’t ever talk to me again. I can’t wait until you’re gone!” I yelled back at my father. Things really were pretty harsh.

But I had every reason to hate Indio. He kicked me out of his life for something I can’t control: my heart.

04-04-15_1-38 PM

 

Luckily, now that Maddy lived with me (well, us, if you include Indio), she was always there to cheer me up. I feared that my father would try to hurt her, so I warned her to stay out of my fights with Indio. I could not see my fiance getting hurt.

As my salty tears washed across my cheek-bone, Maddy dragged me outside.

“I know it’s tough,” Maddy comforted me, rubbing the tears off my face. “I’m glad my parents put me up for adoption when I was a baby. I couldn’t imagine going through this.”

Even though it felt right fighting with Indio after what he did, I was still heart-broken. Being cut-off completely by your father hurts.

I tried to hold back the tears, “I love you Maddy. I’m not sure what I would do without you.”

04-04-15_1-42 PM

 

Maddy managed to cheer me way up. In fact, we decided to head inside and into our room for a wonderful woo hoo.

Maybe I’d get pregnant?!…

NOT! Haha.

I wish.

04-04-15_1-42 PM-2

 

 

As I really started getting involved with my mischievous acts, I thought that maybe Maddy would be my partner in crime.

“So, you know how much I love pranking people, so I was wondering if you’d join forces with me. You know, like become partners in crime?” I asked my fiance.

“Uhhhh… No!” Maddy was very firm in her response.

Maddy was too good to be my partner in crime. Her denial did not surprise me.

Oh well, it was worth a shot. I shrugged it off, and dropped the conversation.

That’s one thing good about Maddy and I. We never fought about anything, ever.

04-04-15_1-51 PM

 

So instead of Maddy joining forces with me, I decided to start pranking her!

Fortunately, she was able to take the pranks without getting too upset.

04-04-15_1-52 PM

 

At last, I earned my first promotion at work. I guess all of my mischievous acts with Maddy were paying off. I was now a Ring Leader with a whooping pay of $17/hr. Look at that smirk on my face! Can you tell I really was becoming a true criminal?

04-04-15_1-54 PM

Luckily my parents decided to upgrade my bedroom when they still loved me. Maddy and I spent most of our time in our bedroom, avoiding Indio. We ate dinner in there, watched TV in there, and got it on in there.

04-04-15_2-00 PM

 

The one time we did go downstairs though was when I dared Maddy to streak, mwahah! Although I was being mischievous doing this, I mainly wanted to see her stunning body.

“Looking gooooood babe!” I screamed, with a giggle. “Oh! Look, there’s Mr. Henderson, our neighbor!” I joked with Maddy, he really wasn’t outside.

“What?! Where?! AHHH!” Maddy screamed and darted back for the door.

“Haha. Fooled ya again!” I laughed out loud.

04-04-15_2-02 PM

 

With the pranks flowing left and right at home, and my goofball personality expanding, I managed to snag another promotion to Felonius Monk, with a pay of $23/hr.

04-04-15_2-14 PM

 

A funny new interaction that I learned practicing my mischief skill was being able to describe the apocalypse.

I gave it a shot with Maddy the next morning.

“…And then, ants will take over ‘zee world!!!” I screamed, pinching hands like little ant arms.

“You’re too much, you little goofball!” Maddy giggled. She loved my goofiness.

04-04-15_2-18 PM

 

Instead of spending his final days of his life accepting me for who I was, Indio decided to continuously argue with me any time I was near him.

“UGH! There’s the pathetic ***** that let 10 generations a legacy go to waste!” He screamed and wagged his finger in my face. “You do realize that there’s no way Maddy can get you pregnant, right? You can keep wishing, but it’s not gonna’ happen! You’re a disgrace!!”

“I get it Indio!!” This was really getting unbearable. I seriously couldn’t wait for Indio’s clock to expire.

“Are you even thinking about this legacy?!” He asked.

“No. No, I am not. And you know why? Because you won’t leave me alone!” My father really was getting under my skin at this point.

04-05-15_4-11 PM

 

“You’re almost an adult now! Don’t you think it’s getting too late to have a baby?!” He yelled some more.

“AHHHH! SHUT UP!!!” I could not take it any more.

“You know what, get over here!” My father launched towards me, again.

04-05-15_4-12 PM

 

Indio beat me up… Again.

I saw stars floating around me head, nearly passing out.

Maybe he really was right though. I had not planned a child yet, and I’m not really sure how to bring in the next generation…

04-05-15_4-13 PM

 

That night, as Maddy comforted me after a rough fight with Indio, I had to bring up the subject of having a child. As much as I didn’t wanna’ give Indio what he wanted, I really did not want to let the Defesco legacy down.

“Maddy, I really want to have a child,” I touched on the subject.

“Baby, I know you do. But, you also know that’s not possible,” she rubbed the back of my hand, as I looked deeply into her eyes. “Besides, we still have a wedding to plan! Let’s not rush things.”

“That’s right! I am so excited for our wedding. But, we definitely have to wait for Indio to pass. He would harass us to no end. I want our wedding to be happy, memorable, and beautiful,” I started dreaming up the perfect wedding in my head.

“I know you do baby, and we will have just that,” Maddy smiled, as her eyes glistened in the light.

04-05-15_4-18 PM

 

Maddy started tickling me.

“Oh, you’re so handsome baby,” Maddy jabbed her fingers in my side, hitting my ticklish spot right away.

“Hehehe!” I laughed so loud that my father heard me downstairs.

I heard him quickly run outside, slamming the door behind him.

04-05-15_4-19 PM

 

The tickling and messing around turned into a wonderful make out session, which eventually ended in a stunning woo hoo.

But, I’m not gonna’ bore you with that image again.

04-05-15_4-20 PM

 

The next morning, Maddy introduced me to her hot new friend Conor. She knew Conor since she was a child. She told me that they clicked instantaneously since they were the same race. I could tell they had a lot in common because they both had the shimmery white skin tone, almost that of a vampire.

“Hi Conor, nice to meet you,” I wasn’t used to talking to boys.

But man, if I was straight, Conor would be the man I’d get with. Unfortunately, I had no interest in men nor would I ever cheat on my fiance.

04-05-15_4-29 PM

 

Conor brought up the touchy subject of a child, as we all hung out in the gym.

“So, forgive me if this offends either of you, but I understand y’all are getting married soon. I was just wondering if you’re planning on having children? And if so, how?” Conor seemed very interested in the subject.

“WOAH!” I yelled, throwing my hands up. “I was not expecting that at all. Uhhhh…” I looked over at Maddy for an answer, because to this day, we still hadn’t figured that out.

“We’re adopting.” Maddy blurted out. And suddenly, we had a plan. A perfect plan if you asked me. I felt a smirk shine on my face.

“Yeah, adoption,” I agreed with my fiance. “We’re gonna’ adopt a child once we get married,” I smiled.

“Oh that’s wonderful! I know that both Maddy and I were adopted, so that’s wonderful you also plan on doing it,” Conor was a very nice man, but there was something about him that I couldn’t exactly pinpoint.

So there we had it. I finally knew how I’d be bringing in the next generation. Maddy and I were going to adopt our children once we get married.

But first, one person had to go…

04-05-15_4-32 PM

 

Fortunately, the next night, Indio’s time finally expired!

See ya’!!

This felt like the biggest weight lifted off my chest.

04-05-15_4-41 PM

Indio’s death did not sadden me at all. I mean, why would it? He never accepted me for who I was.

You could tell I wasn’t bothered by his passing because that same night, I earned a promotion to Minor Crimelord, with a pay of $32/hr.

04-11-15_9-12 AM

Remember how I love reading books? Well, I found a book on the mischief skill, which was tons of fun to read.

Often, I found myself goofing around with the book itself.

04-11-15_9-17 AM

Now that Indio finally passed away, Maddy and I could finally plan the wedding!

“Are you finally ready to get married?!” She asked me with so much enthusiasm.

“You already know!… We have to pick a venue, a day, a time, who we want to invite…” I rambled on a list of things we needed to do.

In the end, we decided that we’d get married that Sunday, since it was the only day we had off. We also rented out the bar, and invited a few of our close friends, and my sister.

I could not wait!!

04-11-15_9-18 AM

On Friday, when I returned home from work, I pumped Maddy up for the wedding!

“Only a few more days babe!” I yelled. “Are you ready?!”

“I was born ready,” Maddy responded with a smile.

04-11-15_9-26 AM

The days were zooming by, and soon enough it was Saturday. The day before the wedding.

Conor stopped by for some celebrations before the big day. You could see how excited I was.

“Ahhh! Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow!” I yelled at the top of lungs outside.

“Yay! I can’t wait! I’m so happy for you guys. You are taking a huge step against society. I take my hat off for you two. I would never be able to marry my boyfriend,” Conor complimented Maddy and I’s bravery.

“Wait… You’re gay?!” I asked Conor, catching his little hint.

“Haha. Yes! Maddy didn’t tell you?!” Conor seemed kind of disappointed that I didn’t know.

“Uhhh… NO!”

This was awesome. Now it all made sense. Now I knew exactly why Conor and Maddy were best friends. They really did have  a lot in common. This also explained the weird feeling I had about Conor earlier. Well, at least I didn’t have to worry about Conor coming onto me now.

04-11-15_9-39 AM

I was in such a good mood that night that I was presented with choosing a career path at work. I could either choose the “Boss” path or the “Oracle” path.

My badass personality went with the “Boss” path. Now, I was The Muscle, with a huge pay raise to $106/hr.

Hide your kids, hide your wife! Because Jewel Defesco’s in town!

04-11-15_9-46 AM

At last, it was time for the big day! Before sharing our vows, we enjoyed a few delicious drinks at the bar.

Maddy decided to double fist the drinks.

04-11-15_9-56 AM

After the drinks were flowing, it was time for the wonderful ceremony.

At last, I was getting married to my soulmate, my best friend, my everything.

04-11-15_9-57 AM

 

I was so glad that my sister came for support. Connor also cheered in the back, with his boyfriend Soren. Thankfully some people supported us.

“Do you, Madelynn Bouchard accept this ring?”

“I DO!”

04-11-15_9-58 AM

I could not be any happier!! ❤

At last, after meeting Maddy 26 sim days ago, we were married.

04-11-15_9-59 AM

 

Maddy and I enjoyed our first piece of cake together as a married couple.

Even though I was a goofball, I resisted the urge to smash it in her face.

04-11-15_10-01 AM

 

Now, it was time for the real challenge… Adopting a child! But first, one more try at getting pregnant… You never know what will happen.

04-11-15_10-02 AM

That’s where we’ll leave it off now. How will our lives change once Maddy and I adopt a child? What other twists do I have hiding up my sleeve? Find out next time!

Update 10.2 – Revealing the Big Secret

Standard

As a quick little recap, my name is Jewel Defesco, the generation 10 heiress! Soon after being declared the heir, I came to the realization that I was in love with my girl best friend, Madelynn. Now, with me finally revealing my secret to myself, it’s time to let my family know…

After just “messing around” with my best friend, Maddy, all night, I felt like it was time to make it official.

“Okay, Maddy,” I started. “I’ve finally come to the realization that I’m in love with you. I’m always so happy around you. I don’t see me with anyone else. So, will you be my girlfriend?” I asked my BFF.

“Of course I will Jewel! I knew from day one that you loved me,” Maddy responded and gifted me a huge hug.

03-29-15_9-09 AM

At breakfast, my father made things very awkward. Neither he nor Jaclyn, my twin, knew about my little secret.

“So Jewel, how’s the search for the perfect mate coming along? Gonna’ make some pretty baby’s for daddy?” He asked me.

“Uhhh… Yeah!” That was all I could get out.

My father couldn’t find out that I had a girlfriend. He’d be crushed.

03-29-15_9-15 AM

 

My father was getting pretty old. He aged into an elder that night.

03-29-15_9-21 AM

You know how I always like adventuring and picking up new hobbies? Well, here’s my newest hobby rocket shipping!

I really enjoyed exploring space because it allowed me to escape all of the drama in my life here at Willow Creek.

03-29-15_9-23 AM

After a few days of avoiding Maddy, since I was in space, eventually decided to go on a date with her. On a side note, I was avoiding her because it was still extremely awkward having her over and I didn’t want Jaclyn or dad to catch me.

Anyways, Maddy and I decided to go on a date at the library because it was too risky to have her over anymore.

03-29-15_9-28 AM

As we sat on the couch, I massaged my lovely girlfriend’s back.

Suddenly, Maddy proposed an idea.

“What if we,” she started “exchange promise rings? I mean, you said that you wouldn’t be with anyone, but me.”

“Ehhh. I don’t know Maddy. I feel like my family won’t accept you.”

“Don’t worry about your family Maddy! You do you. This is your life.”

03-29-15_9-31 AM

 

Sure enough, I pulled Maddy into the bathroom again (this was the same place I asked Maddy to be my girlfriend, because it was the only private place) and got down on one knee. I pulled out the family ring my father gave to me, which has been passed down throughout the generations.

“Madelynn, will you do the honors of being here by my side every single day? I promise to be with you forever,” I told my lovely girlfriend, and now, soul mate.

“Of course I will Jewel!”

So, there we were. Still teenagers, but promised to each other forever. She now held the ring that my mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, great-great-grandmother (you get the point) wore on their finger!

03-29-15_9-32 AM

 

At home, my twin sister, Jaclyn fired questions at me.

“Where were you tonight? What were you doing? Do you have a boyfriend? Tell me all about him. I want to know everything. Is he a good kisser? How old is he?” Jaclyn kept rambling on, and on.

“Uhhhh… Yeah, sure,” again, I was speechless.

“Oh no! Please don’t tell me you were with that bitch… Uhhh, what’s here name again… Mada-dime, or something, right?” Jaclyn made fun of my partner.

“Actually, it’s Madelynn, but she prefers Maddy. And yes, I was with her, in fact,” I came clean, a little bit.

That’s when I realized that this was effecting Jaclyn and I’s relationship. I couldn’t take this any longer. We were about to be adults. We couldn’t go through this drama anymore… I had to tell my sister…

03-29-15_9-37 AM

 

“Jaclyn,” I started off. “I have something to tell you.” I leaned in to whisper into my sister’s ear. I felt my heart beating and palms fill with a puddle of sweat… Here goes nothing. “Maddy and I are in love.” Jaclyn’s face dropped. “And we are promised to each other for life.” I felt my sister lose all faith in me.

It was quiet for a solid ten minutes. I feared what this would do to my relationship with my sister.

03-29-15_9-38 AM

It felt like the longest ten minutes of my life, just staring at my sister’s blank face. Finally, she responded…

With a huge hug!

“Jewel, it’s okay,” she comforted me. “Why didn’t you tell me sooner?”

I was shocked by how Jaclyn responded to my secret.

“Just please don’t tell dad,” I told her.

03-29-15_9-39 AM

As my birthday approached, I started working on upgrades around the house. I wanted to impress my father before I had to reveal my secret to him. Even if this meant getting my hands dirty by upgrading the plumbing on the toilet. At this point, I was so in love with Maddy that I couldn’t hide it much longer… My father walked in while I was working on the toilet.

“Wow Jewel, nice job!” He complimented me.

“Thanks daddy!”

I knew he wouldn’t be this nice to me come a few days…

03-29-15_9-42 AM

Sure enough, it was time for Jaclyn and I’s birthday.

First, my older sister aged, rolling the creative trait. She told me that she wanted to avoid the drama when I told dad, so she decided to move out right away.

03-29-15_9-45 AM

Then, it was my turn. I took a deep birth, threw some confetti and aged into a young adult, rolling the materialistic trait.

Now that I was an adult… It was time to tell my father…

03-29-15_9-49 AM

 

I invited Maddy over, for the first time since we “messed around” for the first time. We sat on the close, cuddling close to each other. My father was right next to us.

“You two girls are very close, aren’t you?” My father asked. “Such great friends!”

Maddy and I looked into each other’s eyes, and giggled.

My father wasn’t paying attention yet. But, he would be soon.

I nodded at Maddy, giving her the signal…

03-29-15_9-57 AM

 

Maddy and I became entangled in a warming make-out session. I laid a big one on Maddy.

I felt my father’s stare glare at my forehead.

What happened next was even more shocking that what happened when I revealed the secret to my sister…

03-29-15_9-59 AM

 

My father jumped off the couch, ripped me away from my girlfriend, Maddy and stood me up.

“You let this legacy down!” He screamed. “You are a disgrace to me, to the Defesco’s, to this legacy! How dare you?!” My father was breaking me down, I felt the tears rush out of my eyes.

All of a sudden, he started beating me. He was punching and screaming the whole time, dropping words I never even heard my father say before. I really did piss him off.

03-29-15_10-01 AM

 

My father knocked me down. I had no choice but to fight back.

03-29-15_10-01 AM-2

At last, the fight broke up. I admit, my father won the fight, but still, I could not believe what just happened.

“If you cause this legacy to fail, I will kill you!” My dad gave one last jab. “Now take your girlfriend, and get out of my house!”

Too bad he couldn’t kick me out, because as heir, this was now my house. So, just to piss my father off even more…

03-29-15_10-02 AM

I got down on one knee and proposed to Maddy!

“Maddy since my father is the biggest *****-bag in the world, please do the honors of being my sexy wife!” I couldn’t be more happy to be getting married.

03-29-15_10-03 AM

“Oh you know I will!” Maddy exclaimed and laid a juicy kiss on me.

03-29-15_10-03 AM-2

Since this really was my house now, and there was nothing my father could do about it, Maddy even decided to move in!

She leaped into my arms with excitement.

I had a feeling my father wouldn’t be around for much longer. I think I’d give him a heart attack.

03-29-15_10-04 AM

Now that my father wasn’t supporting me, I decided that it’d be best to get a job. After everything that happened, I felt like such a rebel. I wanted to go against everyone in society. There’s no question as to why I chose the criminal career path…

I was a Petty Theif.

03-29-15_10-08 AM

Luckily, Maddy would now be at the house every night, and we were free to do what we wanted.

She made this terrible night better.

Our first official woo hoo. ❤

03-29-15_10-09 AM

 

That’s all the drama I have… For now! How will things pan out now that I will be getting married to my fiance? What drama lies ahead?… Just wait and see!

Update 10.1 – A New Kind of Love

Standard

Dadada! Guesss who?! That’s right, it is I, Jewel Defesco, the Generation 10 heiress! I bet you didn’t see this one coming, did you? You thought my sister’s stunning looks would win my father over, but guess what, I earned the honor of heir! Ultimately, my father said that it came down to traits and aspiration. He said that it’d be boring having another Renaissance Sim, so my aspiration of Nerd Brain was better! Just to recap, I am still a teenager, and my traits are bookworm, goofball, and quick learner. I hope to add a bit of fun to this legacy, so let’s waste no more time! Here is my story.

03-27-15_1-35 PM

I had an obsession with books. I read anything from mysteries to logic books to children books. I just loved expanding my knowledge and spending my free time reading. No one quite understood my obsession.

03-27-15_1-36 PM

My parents always tried to keep our family close-knit. I really enjoyed our weekend family dinners. It was the only time we were all home together, since my father worked the night shift.

Of course, I always cracked jokes at the dinner table. I just loved seeing smiles on everyone’s face. I was truly a goofball.

03-27-15_1-39 PM

 

As a reward for earning the honor of heiress, my parents upgraded my bedroom (and Jaclyn moved into a different bedroom). So, what do you think?

Personally, I love it! It has everything I need. I only need to go downstairs to eat.

03-27-15_1-52 PM

In case you were wondering about the little competition my father and mother had going on (who would reach the top of their career first), well, my mother won, of course! Now, my mother was bringing in the big bucks as a Business Tycoon with a pay of $375/hr.

03-27-15_1-59 PM

All along, not many teenagers lived in the town of Willow Creek. Things were always lonely, being the only student in my classes. Fortunately, Willow Creek began offering scholarships to anyone who attended the school, so the influx of students skyrocketed.

This was wonderful. Now, I could actually make friends and meet new people at school. This actually made school much more enjoyable. In fact, on the first day back, I met this guy Tom. He was a pretty cool dude, and we hung out often.

03-27-15_2-08 PM

I also met Madelynn at school. I could tell that Madelynn and I would be close friends, if not best friends. We had so much in common. I loved spending my time with her!

03-27-15_2-14 PM

As we hung out that night, we shared a few jokes and played around a lot. I looked at my watch and realized it was already 11pm! Jeez! I needed to get to bed.

“Well, Maddy, I should probably get to bed,” I said good-bye to my new friend with a high-five.

“See ya in school Jewel!” Maddy exclaimed.

It felt nice to hear that. I couldn’t wait for school the next morning.

03-27-15_2-16 PM

At breakfast, I talked about all the new friends I was making, in particular, Maddy.

“So, I love that Willow Creek is attracting all these new students. It’s wonderful,” I explained. “I have a ton of friends already… I have to introduce you guys to Maddy. She’s great.”

“I’m glad to hear that, honey,” my mother responded. I knew my mom would be impressed because she was a schmoozer herself.

“Would it be alright if she comes over after school?” I asked.

“That’d be great!” My father exclaimed.

Out of the corner of my eye, I saw Jaclyn roll her eyes. She was upset that I wasn’t spending time with her, my twin…

03-27-15_2-27 PM

Sure enough, after school, Maddy came over, and I introduced her to everyone. Of course, my sister wasn’t a fan. Oh well.

Once the introductions were over, Maddy and I bonded in the living room, as I finished up my homework.

“Your house is really nice,” Maddy complimented, with a smile.

“Thanks Maddy!”

03-27-15_2-31 PM

 

After I finished up my homework, it was time for some real fun. Maddy and I continued joking around.

“Selfie-nation!” I exclaimed and turned my phone around, capturing a selfie of this wonderful moment. “Now, we will remember forever the first time you came over!”

“That’s great, because I’ll be over a lot!” Maddy blurted.

Sure enough, that came true. Maddy and I hung out every single day. I could feel myself drifting apart from my twin, Jaclyn.

03-27-15_2-35 PM

Sometimes, homework got a little too stressful, so I liked to have some alone time. I even picked up the crafting hobby. I loved working with my hands, if you know what I mean…

Well, you won’t know what I mean until a little later, haha.

Sorry, that’s my goofball side coming out again.

03-28-15_9-45 AM

 

One hobby I loved even more than crafting was playing chess with Maddy. Although she wasn’t very good, it was still better than playing alone, or with my mother/father. They were both chess experts.

03-28-15_9-48 AM

 

My goofy side often came out around Maddy. I’m not really sure what it is about her, but she always managed to make me smile. We always had a blast together.

Maddy hit me on the shoulder, “So, I know that you have a crush on Tom, don’t you,” she joked with me.

“What! No I don’t,” I giggled and pushed Maddy back. “I think you do!”

03-28-15_9-51 AM

 

Speaking of Maddy, we made our best friendship official. We were best friends forever!!

03-28-15_9-52 AM

Remember how my father thought that he was going to beat my mother to the top of his career? Well, guess what? He’s just making it to the top now! My father earned his final promotion as a Champion Gamer, with a pay of $328/hr.

03-28-15_9-56 AM

Although Maddy and I were best friends, I didn’t stop making new friends.

The next day, at the park, as Maddy and I played chess, we saw a girl who went to our school. I waved her down.

“Hi there!” I introduced myself. “My name is Jewel and this is Madelynn, but she prefers Maddy. You go to Willow Creek High School, right?”

“Yeah! My name is Brooke,” she responded. “It’s nice to meet both of you. I always see the two of you together in the hallways. I wish I had a friend like that!”

“You can be friends with us!” Maddy welcomed Brooke.

“Awww. Thanks!”

03-28-15_10-01 AM

After Brooke left, Maddy and I headed down to the lagoon to watch the water and sunset. During this time, something unexpected happened.

“Oh wow! Did you see that duck eat that fish?!” I asked Maddy.

Maddy giggled, “Yes! I did! And you know what else I saw it eat?”

“No, what?” I could tell she was about to make a great joke, like usual.

“YOU!” Maddy screamed and started tickling me.

I giggled to no end, until finally she stopped. That’s when it happened.

My hand landed on Maddy’s. “Oh.” I screeched.

“Don’t worry, Jewel. Just go with it,” Maddy assured that everything would be okay.

I smiled at Maddy and felt my heart flutter… What was going on?

03-28-15_10-34 AM

 

Then, Maddy placed her second hand on top of mine, and I placed my other hand on top of hers. We had a hand sandwich. I couldn’t help by smile deeply at my best friend.

“Listen, Jewel,” Maddy explained. “I can tell how you’re feeling. It’s fine. Trust me. Do what you feel comfortable. If things get too far, let me know, and I will back off. I would never want to see you hurt.”

I could tell that Maddy’s words were sincere. At the moment, I was still speechless. I just kept smiling and thinking.

Would everything really be okay? I thought to myself. My parents would be devastated. I can’t do this. How would I bring in the next generation? Maybe I could just pass along my inheritance to Jaclyn?… I thought deeply about my next action.

Finally, I took a deep breath, and said, “Maddy, I’m really sorry, but I should get home.”

“No worries, Jewel. Best friends still, right?” Maddy asked.

“Of course!” I exclaimed. “It’ll be like this never happened.”

03-28-15_10-36 AM

Eventually, my mother’s final days came to an end. I would miss her dearly. Well, at least that’s one less person I would have to hide my relationship with Maddy from…

Wait, what am I thinking?! Maddy and I are just friends! I encouraged myself (man, did I inherit some of my father’s insanity, or what?).

03-28-15_10-45 AM 03-28-15_10-46 AM

The next day, after school, I took a break from hanging out with Maddy. Things were just too complicated right now… I wasn’t in the best mood either, since my mother just died…

Like Maddy said, I would never want to hurt her. I played chess alone, thinking more about what happened the other day in the park with Maddy. I thought how I could possibly make it work.

Then, I shook my head, ‘Nah, it’s not possible.’ I said in my head. I really needed to find a boyfriend soon; just to show Maddy that it wasn’t possible. Maybe I did have a crush on Tom. Oh, or that b-

Suddenly, I heard a knock on the door.

I didn’t even need to turn around to see who it was…

03-28-15_10-48 AM

Growing very comfortable with my family, Maddy let herself in, and joined my chess game.

“Hey Jewel!” Maddy greeted me. “I’m really sorry about your loss. Your mother truly was a great woman.”

Suddenly, Maddy’s condolences turned into flirting… Here we go again.

“Maddy, let’s take this upstairs,” I told her, in fear my father or sister would see.

03-28-15_10-49 AM

 

In my room, I turned on the lights, and just as I was going to sit on my bed, it happened.

SMOOCH!

Maddy’s lips met mine, and I felt my heart race a million miles a minute.

“Calm down,” Maddy soothed me. “Like I said, everything will be okay… I can hear your heart beating.Just take a deep breath, and follow your heart.”

03-28-15_10-52 AM

Enough was enough. I couldn’t take it anymore!…

Maddy had finally won over my heart. I played back, following my heart, as she said.

I kissed along Maddy’s neck, making her giggle and squeal.

“Oh! You’re good at this,” Maddy gasped.

03-28-15_10-52 AM-2

We spent the rest of the night, in my bed, “messing around”. I could not believe what I had gotten myself into. If my father or sister found out, I was dead meat. There’s no way I can bring in the next generation like this. And there was also no way I could cheat on Maddy. I surely had myself stuck in a pit.

03-28-15_10-54 AM

After things calmed down a bit, Maddy decided to spend the night, and we cuddled all night long. That night, I dreamed about how I let the Defesco legacy down. I felt like a disgrace to the community. All I wanted was for my family to be accepting, but I know they wouldn’t because this would ruin their legacy…

I ended up crying myself to sleep.

Accepting my new-found discovery:

I. Was. A. Lesbian.

03-28-15_10-55 AM

Well, now that Jewel’s big secret is out (kind of), how will she accept her fate as heiress? Will she have to hurt Maddy? Or will she choose to hurt her family?…

Find out in the next update!
