Take Me to the Moon 3.4: Cassandra Saves the Legacy
After she finished her homework, she was either on the nursery porch working on chemistry, or in the small observatory with her granddad, charting the stars.
One day Uncle Barnaby stopped by during his afternoon run.
He started explaining to her one of conspiracy theories, but Delaney knew to take Uncle Barnaby’s stories with a chunk of rock salt.
Night and day, Delaney’s mom was in her garden, which was pretty immense.
Delaney was frustrated. She figured her mom’s wealth of botany knowledge was important for her to learn, to carry into her space missions. Delaney knew that astronauts often worked on botanical experiments in space.
Her dad was always there for her, though. She knew to him, she was the most important person in the world.
One night, when the house was dark, Delaney woke to screams.
She ran out of the nursery and into the dining room. Her grandmother looked angry, and the bar was on fire!
Delaney was panicked at first, but she followed grandma’s determined walk out to the front lawn, and safety.
Soon, the rest of the household woke up and Delaney broke away from her grandma, and ran back in to get her granddad.
Just as they left the house, Cassandra woke up and came into the dining room with a determined look and a fire extinguisher.
Don’t mess with a sleepy, evil snob with a fire extinguisher! Especially one in the first trimester of pregnancy, as Cassandra was!
Everyone was acting pretty happy, even a bit silly.
It was fun watching the grown-ups act like kids.
Aunt Cacey was the coolest person Delaney had ever seen. She worked for a secret spy agency and she always looked so glamorous! But she always had time for Delaney, too.
Aunt Cacey would come out to Delaney’s lab and see what she was working on.
At least her dad was still there for her.
Her grandma threw a big dinner party when it was almost time for the baby to come.
Great-Aunt Hermione came. Aunt Cacey told her that she and grandma used to be enemies, but Delaney thought they seemed like they had been friends forever.
Aunt Hermione was happy about the new baby. Delaney wondered if her mom was going to love this new baby more than her.
Delaney felt like her grandma was more a mom to her than her real mom. People said Grandma was evil, but Delaney didn’t think so. Grandma was very funny and liked to laugh.
The time came for Delaney’s little sister to be born. Mom had already decided to name her “Deirdre.”
The fire was unexpected and scary… when I realized I had not put sprinklers, only alarms. There is no fire rescue in Sims 4. Luckily, Cassandra had reached the top level of the Freelance Botanist aspiration and was able to easily and safely extinguish the fire, once she woke up!
There is a menu option during a fire, “route to safety” or something like that, and it did make the sims run outside. But Delaney ran back in once.
Well, that’s all for now– wanted to get this update done but I don’t have any more pictures of the main household after this one because after Deirdre was born I switched to playing Cacey for a while.
