Two Big Softies
Take Me to the Moon 6.7
Yuki was in labor. She had just gotten back from a walk around the block, hoping the exercise would make the contractions to come more regularly. Now she was wondering why she had wanted more contractions. There was barely time between them to catch her breath.
As she breathed deeply and worked to relax all her muscles, she got into a rhythm. She could do this.
Then, suddenly, everything became very intense and overwhelming. This was not going to work. Where was Fiona? She needed to get to the hospital, and get some pain medicine!
Fiona arrived just as little Misa came into the world. Fiona looked into his beautiful dark eyes and gorgeous, rich, cocoa skin color. Misa was a miracle, and she couldn’t move her eyes away from him.
Welcome, Misa Tesla!
It wasn’t long before the family began to arrive to meet Misa. Fearghus had texted Elsa, and asked her to come along too.
“What do you think?” she spun and twirled for Fearghus to see her new look.
Of course, Fearghus had a new look, too, since he had gained so much muscle mass, and literally burst out of his old clothes. Elsa wondered if Fearghus was catching on that she liked him. She wondered how long it would take him to get over Alyse; didn’t he realize Alyse didn’t feel that way about him?
The family headed to the nursery. Zoe gave the new mom a great big hug and asked if she was ok.
“Well, I certainly didn’t know what I was getting myself into,” she said wryly. “I’m not so anxious to repeat that whole experience.”
Fearghus was excited to be an uncle and quite eager to meet Misa.
As he put his finger near Misa’s cheek, Misa turned and nuzzled him. Fearghus was smitten completely.
Ewan, who had been feeling much more frail lately, held this little miracle, and wondered. He wondered if he would get to meet his grandchildren. He marveled at the family line continuing, and that it would go on, after he and Elise were gone. He thought of his mom, and his grandmothers, Bella, and Cassandra, and wondered what they would think to see this seventh generation after Maddi come into the world.
But then, his somber realization of his own imminent passing faded, as he held Misa, and Misa warmed his heart.
Zoe was talking with the new moms about taking care of a baby, and remembering what it was like to hold little Felicity, and Fearghus, when they were babies.
Fearghus and Elsa had gone downstairs and were enjoying each others’ company. Although they’d been friends since they were young children, they’d not been nearly as close as Alyse and Fearghus. Fearghus knew that Elsa had told him to let Alyse go, and he knew that she was speaking up for Alyse. But he also wondered, if she had feelings for him. He wondered if he could have feelings for her.
Right now, Fearghus could only really think of Alyse. But he also wanted, desperately, to fall in love and be loved.
Zoe, confident that the new moms were ok, allowed herself to cuddle and love on Misa to her heart’s content.
Ewan came upstairs, and took her in his arms.
“You know, we’re greats now,” he said.
Zoe, who had always been the cheerful one, knew Ewan wasn’t well, and she tried not to think of losing him, while savoring this moment with him, for all it was worth.
Later that day, at home, Ewan tried to paint, but had to take a break and lay down for a while.
After a while, he was able to go back and finish it, another masterpiece, perhaps his last.
Zoe woke from a nap and came out to give him a hug. Instead, he passionately swept her into an embrace.
The next morning was Fearghus’ young adult birthday. Zoe and Ewan woke early to prepare cake and ice cream.
After all the repairing to the game I had to do last time I played Simdale Valley, I hadn’t edited the default.ini to get rid of the plumbbobs and group icons again for this post.
I think that the way genetics works in The Sims 4, is that the parents’ skintones provide a range and the children’s skin tones can fall anywhere in between. So the range for Fiona and Yuki allow for almost any skin tone. I’m very excited about Misa’s genetics.
This was Fearghus and his dad watching a romance movie (Roaring Vice). Fearghus, still broken hearted over Alyse (he had the broken hearted icon intermittently over his head), and in tears over the drama in the movie, declared Romance to be his favorite genre. You can see, though, that he was happy about being sad from the romance movie.
Ewan apparently likes romance too 🙂
Early in this play session, just before Misa was born, I got the message that Ewan doesn’t have long left, to make the most of his days.
