Death Is for the Living Too
Take Me to the Moon 6.16
Previous Chapter / Next Chapter
This time, the family knew, Zoe was gone.
Not only was Zoe gone, but Alyse got word that her mother, Echo Weaver, had also passed away.
There were no words to console each other with, no way to frame this, in this moment, that let them escape this finality.
Hearing the news, family started to arrive at the house to bring food and look after things.
Fearghus and Alyse were in their own world of sadness, together. They were each other’s lifelines.
Fox took the role of host. Even though he’d just lost his mother, he had three parents, in effect, and so although he was sad, the bedrock of his security was still in tact.
The family shared stories of Zoe. How she always helped everyone else.
Although she was funny and goofy a lot, it was never at others’ expense.
Felicity gave her little brother a big hug. They, and Fox, would need each other now, more than ever, with both their parents gone.
Fearghus looked over at Alyse as he and Felicity broke off their hug. “You never really knew Alyse’s mom, did you?” he asked.
“No, I knew her. She’s been at almost every family party since she and Alyse moved in down the street when you were a little kid. I remember… she always noticed how everyone was interacting, but she didn’t butt in. She was a very wise person, I think.”
Alyse, thinking of her mom, got up and went over the piano.
Although she hadn’t officially done anything with her musical aspiration, playing soothed her.
After giving Fearghus a big hug, Fiona headed down to the vault, where the family had placed Zoe’s urn right next to Ewan’s, in their niche.
Because of the circumstances of Alyse’s mother’s death, she did not have a marker, grave, or urn to visit, and so she also visited the vault to grieve her mother, as well as Zoe.
- Rest In Peace, Zoe Tesla, and Echo Weaver. You will both be missed so much! I was sad that neither of them would be able to meet their grandchild, who will be born any hour.
- With Alyse’s delivery imminent, I didn’t try to invite a lot of sims for the wake. When Alyse and Fearghus’ baby is born, I plan to have a big party with as many Tesla relatives as possible, present. Sakura, Misa, Fox, and Aubree are all going to be kids together now, and I’m looking forward to getting them together in the game.
