The family meets a traveler… #wheresfree
Well, that was a nice little break from the legacy. My friend visited for the weekend so my play time was cut out from last weekend. Before that happened, though, I took out my mods and packed up Chiyo for CathyTea’s Animal Hat Summer Camp!
As AHSC has a lot of Game Aware sims I think Chiyo is going to have her eyes opened a bit. The rest of the family is either going to embrace it or think she’s nuts. Since you really don’t hear their thoughts it doesn’t really matter but for the next generation I’m going to try and fit it in somehow (I have some ideas).
For now, though, we’re back to the grind and counting down the days until the triplets age up.
Chiyo seemed to realize that she was in two places at the same time and contemplated the meaning of this over her cereal.
Aya tried to help her understand a bit, as she’s been other places, too. It’s not something Aya has really talked about during her stay with the family. Everyone just knows that she had (and is having!) a wonderful time.
Malik (along with the triplets and Chiyo) received his birthday notification just after we booted up, too. I don’t read things very carefully so of course I forgot to have someone make him a cake. He aged into an elder and kept his dark hair for some reason. Hey, I’m not gonna argue with genetics! He barely even looks like an elder! He’s not even related by blood to the amazing ageless Aya!
It seemed like it took an eternity for the triplets to age up but when they did I was SO relieved. They cried so much! I used the new door locks to keep the kids out but eventually I had to limit it to just Kaori and Malik because everyone kept walking into each other.
They aged up backwards for some reason but here are their lovely traits:
- Daichi: lazy
- Eiji: mean
- Fugi: slob
So that’s nice…
Now that we had seven kids(!) in the house they decided to head out to explore the neighborhood because they’ve been sort of secluded so far in their lives. They know what a lack of socialization can do for a sim. They heard that uncle Tatsuya was having a hard time on the dating show he’s on right now. The kids aren’t allowed to watch but aunt Aya told them he was feeling awkward (I imagine, haha). Chiyo decided she would watch when she became a teenager (she couldn’t wait).
Anyway, on their excursion outside they ran into a new face in the neighborhood.
Even though he didn’t know what on earth he was talking about, Daichi seemed excited to hear this. Wow! First day out of the house and they already met someone from outside the family!
Daichi stepped back to let Chiyo, the oldest, take a look. She said the name “Free-Jon” and “Wolff Tea” sounded familiar to her. Elder told them that Free Jon was his son and he didn’t know where he had gone.
Eiji: We might have seen something! Come over here!
Elder followed, smiling (because he’s a nice guy), and looked around the area.
Out of nowhere, Eiji started shouting at Elder!
Eiji: Gotcha! You’re not here to find your son! You’re here to take away our Aunt Aya!
Elder: Whoooa, wait, what?!
Eiji: You heard me! You took our aunt Aya somehow and now you’re taking my sister, Chiyo! I don’t understand how you’re doing it but I don’t trust you!
At that, Elder smiled a huge grin and clapped his hands.
Elder: No waaaay! Aya’s here?! Thanks, boys!
He turned to run back to the sidewalk leaving them puzzled.
Daichi: Wait! So… you don’t know who we are? You’re really looking for those kids?
Elder: They were at our Animal Hat Summer Camp-
Eiji: What if you came over to our house tomorrow to talk to aunt Aya?
The next morning, the kids had school (since it was Monday) and they left Aya to wait excitedly for her old friend to arrive. Right at 8 o’clock, Elder managed to find the big house by the lake and went up to knock on the door.
Aya was so happy to see him!
Aya: Elder! Oh my gosh, you’re so young! I can’t believe you’re here!
Elder: Same here! Who knew I’d end up on your family’s hard drive?
Elder: Cheer up!
Aya: You’re right. Come on and tell me about Free Jon and his friends!
Elder: I’m trying to think of where to try next. I’ve been all over the place!
Elder: I’m sure they’ll meet some day. Maybe your watcher can set something up in the future.
Aya: You’re right. There’s always a way!
Elder: Aya, I’ll see you back in the Hippie House!
Aya: You bet! Give everyone hugs for me!
I hope you enjoyed this different sort of update from me! I hope to do more of this with my next story and be a little more creative. I would do it more often but I don’t want to mix things up TOO much. 😛
Activity table bowl! Art and breakfast together as one!
