Vega 2: Round 10

Last round, Violet and Orion continued raising their son, Orange, from a toddler to a child. Violet, meanwhile, became pregnant for a second time and gave birth to twins Ruby and Indigo.

Doing some remodeling?

Kia: You live in a house as long as we have and things get stale after awhile.

John: We're doing better money-wise now. No reason we shouldn't splurge a little.

Can't say I disagree, but I do wonder why you chose the hallway bathroom to splurge on.

Ruby, I don't think those dolls are edible...

Man, Sears is really getting around...he's shown up on almost every lot so far. 

Happy birthday, dear Indigo...

Not bad...

Happy birthday dear Ruby...

Also not bad, but I think you'll need a new outfit.

Well, at least this nanny cleans up after herself when she pees in the kitchen...I guess that's something. 

Back again, Sears?

Sears: Yesterday I came home with Orange. Today I came home with Ruby.

Seems like it would have been easier to make friends with all of them at once, but whatever...

Another day, another birthday. Happy birthday dear Orange...

Well, like your sister you'll need a new outfit. But otherwise, not bad. Have you given any thought to your aspiration?

Orange: I want lots of friends!

Great, popularity it is. Wait, what's that noise outside?

Ok, someone want to tell me why Glinda Mendoza's having a nervous breakdown on the lawn?

Ok, her niece Jade is here well past her bedtime, and sitting in the road. But I think the breakdown is a bit of an overreaction. 

Yes! A nice, easy lifetime want. Better get Orange working on that charisma skill.

Ruby: Look, Dad! I got an A+!

Orion: Mysterious voice, why aren't you clapping?

I'm waiting for the other twin...and how do you know I'm not clapping? You can't see me.

Indigo: I got an A+ too!

Great job Indigo. Sorry the 2nd one off the bus always gets less fanfare.

A bit late in the week, but let's give the gypsy a try.

Oh, come on, Gypsy....

Gypsy: What? She's single.

Yes, but as I said way back at the beginning of the round we are not adding any new girls. Also, she seems to be in the middle of her work day.

Amy: No I'm not.

So you just carry around a bag of newspapers all the time?

Amy: It's good exercise.

You know, I think Orange would have better luck waiting until some more girls grow up later in the round.

Orange: Can't I try one more time?

Relax, Orange. Your patience will be rewarded, I promise.

At least your scholarships turned out great.

Orange: Well, it's not like I had much to do besides work on my skills. Like, you know, date.

Don't worry, Orange. I know the right one for you will be aging up soon. And speaking of which, it's about time for me to be moving on. Orange, I'll see you at graduation and everybody else, I'll see you next round.

A Message From the Mysterious Voice: Not the most thrilling lot, I know. Glinda's breakdown really was the highlight of the week. I honestly have no idea why she went into aspiration failure when she arrived to collect her niece. My sims rarely, if ever, go into red aspiration at all, so Glinda must have had a huge fear realized to push her that low that quickly. Her grandmother Madison Beesly died earlier in the round, so maybe that's what did it, although I don't remember her being close enough with Madison to have a fear of her death.. We won't know until we get to her house, which isn't for some time yet.

Sometimes quiet houses can be nice. Another nice lot.
