Hello everyone. As you have probably noticed, there are recently many elder deaths and many teenage romances. It is such a period in Strangetown currently. Some of it will still be in this part too. But those are not the only things happening around the desert. So just click next and find out... Sooner or later it had to happen. Lionel Singles was caught sneaking out and brought home by the police. Luckily his mother was asleep with some another guy and didn't notice or care about it at all. He didn't like how his life was going nowhere, but with a mother like Chloe did he ever had a choice? He's running away because he doesn't want to be in this house, that's all. But it seems that Chloe likes company. Having lots of money from her golden days in sports she hired a butler to take care of things. But her other habits haven't changed at all. Instead of going alone, Lionel started sneaking out with Anais Rai, one of Jasmine Rai's twin daughters. They met at school (one of those rare days he actually showed up) and became friends quickly. They had so much in common! Anais's father didn't ever care for her or her sister and Lionel didn't even know who his father was. Anais liked him for some reason. Even though he was younger, she liked him. And so the inevitable happened and they didn't even notice how or when but they officially became a couple. Though they mostly met at school and at nights sneaking out, Anais sometimes came over to visit him too. But only on those rare occasions Chloe wasn't home. So that they would be free to do whatever they wanted. A tragedy at the Roseland household. Porthos died of old age. It broke Cyd's heart. They were more than best friends, it seemed a part of him was taken away, so suddenly... He couln't even take the grave anywhere else and left it in the house. Sylvia was also sad. She grew up with Porthos and it seemed natural to always have him around. But there were still other pets in need of no less love and attention. Like Pinkie, who was getting old too. Sylvia was best friends with the oldest Smith children Otto (in the picture) and Oscar for a long time. But somehow things happened to be takin to the next level. Sylvia and Otto now were officially going steady. In the Picaso family romance bloomed in Maria's heart. She and Trent Grunt were of the same age and their parents were such great friends they almost grew up together. Knowing Trent was ver shy Maria took the first step... And kissed him. Her brothers would soon start looking for love too as they grew up to teenagers. First Andrew... ...then Julian. Andrew (knowledge) on the right, Julian (popularity) on the left. I just wanted to take a picture of the whole family using the sauna :) On top, left to right: Maria, Julian, Andrew, below their parents Jessica and Matthew. Remember Alexandra Rusewicz, Alan Loner's girlfriend? She has twins brother and sister. Who have just grown up to teenagers. Rebecka and Liam. I thought Alexandra turned out quite well, but Rebecka happened to be VERY beautiful! Well, her brother Liam is also not bad. Nothing changed much since they all grew up. Alexandra still prefers basketball... ...and the twins like football much more. Kristen Rusewicz is making hot-dogs for a party. She lived a long and nice life together with her husband Lee and now it's time for their golden anniversary. They didn't want anything fancy, just a small celebration to mark how many years have passed. Kristen's old friends from the Singles household came, of course. In this picture - Erin and Lola. It was basically an elderly party. Old friends from good old times. But everyone enjoyed it. The party was a roof raiser! Yet the music hasn't silenced yet, not all guests have left... When it turned out the day will be both a party and a tragedy. Kristen was older than Lee, but he never thought she would go so soon. Her life insurance gave them all a huge amount of money, so they could buy a new and bigger house, since this one was becoming too crowded with three grown up children. But it was no comfort, of course... The children were so depressed, they couldn't even sleep through the night. Life seemed to be generous for Gunnar Roque. A mysterious visitor came to leave him a gift. Which he didn't think long how to use, Gunnar asked for beauty! Little did he know this would make his doorbell ring non-stop, day and night, ALL THE TIME. And not only ladies would come... But that's tiny problems when comparing to Celeste's. She was having a very hard time convincing Monica that she wants to move out on her own. But there was nothing Monica could really do about it. Celeste was grown up, had a job and wanted freedom. It was hard for little Ashley to understand why her big sister had to leave. But maybe soon things would clear up for her, once Ashley is a teenager herself and starts looking for love... She now refused to continue sharing a room with Monica and occupied Celeste's room. Not only it meant more privacy but it also made her feel closer to her sister. But a good old gaming session can't hurt, right?! At least Celeste left the cat with them. But Prince was getting old and it was just a question of time... Celeste couldn't be happier to move in with Jupiter. She did get a little scared at first seeing what an awesome house he bought, but he had quite a big and steady income, so they could afford it. Celeste also quit her job as a teacher and found a new one. She always dreamed of being a journalist. Life just couldn't get any better. They were together now. Finally. It didn't take long before the special day. They rent some tables and chairs for the party as they couldn't afford buying them and keeping. The guests were mostly Jupiter's family and relatives, because Celeste didn't really have anyone to invite. She did invite Ashley, of course. The moment they have waited for so long...

(I'm sorry for the smustling in front of the wedding arch. Eve just couldn't stop even during the ceremony! So the few other pictures will be quite funny)
... ... Cutting the cake. And the dancing part. Celeste didn't invite Monica because she knew she wouldn't come. Or would come to throw a scene. Now she will be cursing "those ungrateful adopted children" for the rest of her life, but hey, it's her own fault she was against aliens in the first place! Celeste wanted to have her moment of happiness without it being interrupted by someone who has raised her but still wasn't even her real mother. The party turned out to be a roof raiser and even counted as a family reunion for Jupiter and his relatives. Now lets leave them alone for a while, shall we? And go look at how Guy is teaching his son Daniel to walk. It's Guy's daughter's Vivian's birthday! Having her both parents popularity sims she became a popularity sim too. Good news, daddy. It was impossible to say if she will be interested in politics, but now Vivian has officially stated she wants to be the mayor of Strangetown some day.

Note: I really didn't have any plans for her and wasn't considering her as the next mayor, but she rolled that as her lifetime wish, on her own, so I guess I'll play along, it's even better this way.
Finally Vivian is old enough to hold her brother Daniel. Too bad Daniel isn't little enough for holding! Sarah and Matthew Hart have always wanted a big family, but they never thought it would be so hard. Of course, it was easier when many of their offsprings were children already. But the money was still tight and their huge house still had only the basic furniture. Little Theresa, the youngest of the Hart children. Now that her little siblings could take more care of themselves, the oldest of the children, Shannon could start taking care of her personal life. Could this be love? A tragedy almost struck the family... Sarah was cooking breakfast when the stove went up in flames. Their kitchen was so small that Sarah had nowhere to run quickly enough... Luckily Matthew was home and saw it happen, he pleaded Death not to take his wife. How would he raise six children on his own? Matthew won a game against Death and it will now be their little secret. Luckily enough, the children were not home to see this happen, so they don't even have to know. Matthew would not lose his dearest Sarah. At least not just yet. And not like this.

Note: I was actually terrified when that happened. Three sim-days with no saving... And then she goes up in flames! When their both lifetime wishes are golden anniversary and those are yet unfulfilled! I guess I would have had to quit without saving if she died. But I'm glad she's alive.
Soon the older twins grew up to teenagers. First Eric...

Note: Matthew and Sarah had a daughter, then twins, then twins again, then another daughter.
...then Walter. And Theresa, the youngest of the Harts, grew up to child just a day after. The whole family spending their weekend together. Prof. Zaitrarrio was so proud of his so little, yet so beautiful and intelligent daughter Samantha. But Jessie haven't changed much... All she cared about still was her newly appearing wrinkles. And men... Barely meeting someone new she even tried flirting with the gardener. Samantha's good grades made it possible for her to go to private school. Jessie helped a little too. And it didn't take long until she met Frances J. (the younger) there. Even though her mother stil maintained friendly relationships with her college times lover Frances J. (the older), their children never had a chance to meet. Samantha was doing well at school and this was good for Zaitrarrio too. He proved that his affair with a student at college was not just a one-time thing, but that it grew into a serious family relationship and they had a very bright daughter together. This helped him to finally move on in his career and achieve his lifelong dream of becoming Education Minister. And that was just in time. Because THE TIME came... At least he died happy. But poor Samantha was left all alone with a mother who didn't even want her in the first place. Will she manage to stay strong? But that you will find out some time in the future. This is the end of part 9. I won't make any promises except for the fact that when you will be reading this story, I will already be writing at least the beginning of part 10. I just don't know how often will I be able to play, since I have a lot of college work and actual work to do. You can always check my blog for an updates of how soon you can expect something from me.

As for the picture... Seriously, what could possibly be THAT scary on a kids channel?
