Welcome to part 3... if you haven't read parts 1 & 2 I recomend that you do before reading this otherwise you might find this confusing. Was Kiley killed by someone or was it just by chance that Nicholas was walking by Arabella as Kiley died??? These are Arabella's new neighbors... That's Drake with his daughter Serena, Drake's wife Kate died shortly after they moved in. Arabella threw a birthday party for Cody and invited her friends over to celebrate. Arabella pulled Eric to the side to ask...
"How are you and the twins holding up?"

"We're doing ok for now, it'll be their birthday soon and I'm not throwing a party this soon after Kiley died"

"Well if you need anything just let me know"

As the party continued Arabella noticed that Nora looked excited about something, so she had to ask...
"What are you excited about?"

"Bo asked me to marry him!"

Arabella was happy for her friend yet she felt left out somehow, maybe it's because every guy she likes ends up hurting her...

"You'll call me when you set a date right"

"Of course, now lets party"
A few days after Cody's birthday party Arabella got a call from Nora, thinking that she was calling about wedding stuff Arabella was surprised at what Nora was calling about...

"Hey Nora, set a date for the wedding yet?"

"That's not why I'm calling, I was at the boutique and I saw something or should I say someone."

"Who?" "Nicholas, with another woman, I'm so sorry, I thought you should here it from a friend then from someone else."

"What were they doing?" her voice shaking as she asked

"Making out in the middle of the boutique, and they left together in his car."

"Thanks for telling me Nora, so how are the wedding plans going?"

"The plans are going but rather slowly but I'll keep you updated, I better get back to planning my wedding."

"Talk to you later then."
That night after Nora told her about Nicholas, she called Eric and asked him to meet her at Memorial Square and to invite Nicholas to meet him there and not to mention her. When she got there Eric was there waiting for Nicholas to show up, so she filled Eric in on what Nora told her earlier...

"Nora said that she say him making out with a blonde woman, I want to catch him in the act and tell him to forget about me moving in with him."

"He did ask if he could bring someone with him, maybe it'll be the same woman."

So they waited on opposite sides of the small park...
As she was walking around Memorial Square Arabella stoped in her tracks when she saw this, it was Nicholas and he was making out with a blonde woman. She couldn't take it anymore.... She ran up a slapped him silly for betraying her trust, little did she know that was the least of it...

"How could you do this to me Nicholas?" "Do what?"

"Kiss another woman behind my back and in front of me, do I mean that little to you?"

"You mean everything to me, but you won't give me an answer"

"Here is your answer..... NO, I'm NOT moving in with you Nicholas!!!" she yelled at him


Gues who the blonde woman is....
Dina of all people was making out with Nicholas, they do have a lot in common... They want money and are willing to just about anything to get it.

Arabella was so mad at both of them she left before someone called the cops, she was going to get back at Nicholas in her own way.
After getting back to her house Arabella called Nora & Eric over for desert and to fill Nora in about who the blonde woman was and what happend with Nicholas...

"So what happened?" Nora asked them

"Well lets put it this way, Arabella almost started a fight." Eric stated

"Well I slapped Nicholas silly that was it." Arabella said

"What if someone called the cops?" Nora asked worried

"Don't worry Nora there wasn't anyone that saw me slap him except for Dina, that's who you saw him kiss at the boutique." Arabella replied

They all said good night to each other a few minutes later, and Arabella was left wondering why Nicholas was with Dina in the first place.
That weekend Cody asked if he could invite a friend over to play, and Arabella agreed to it and told him that she was making luch. As shwas making lunch there was a knock at the door, Cody opened the door and revealed a pretty little girl, Cody introduced her to Arabella as Serena. Arabella invited Serena to join them for lunch before her and Cody go outside and play, so the three of them sat down and had lunch.

"Serena and her family moved here recently" Cody informed Arabella

"It's true, shortly after moving in to our new place my mom suddenly died while my father was taking me to school" Serena told them

"I'm so sorry to here that Serena, you tell your dad that if he needs anything to give me a call, ok" she said to the little girl

Serena just smiled and got really quiet after that...
The next morning there was a knock at the door, when Arabella opened it there was no one there until she looked down by her garden. When she got closer she realised that it was her little sister Elizabeth, although everyone that knew her just called her Beth.

"Beth... What are you doing here? I thought you were at Sim State University?"

"I was until I graguated, I knew you lived near by so I thought I'd stop by for a visit"

"Would you like to just move in with us?" "Us? Who's Us?"

"Why my son Cody and myself, I thought Kiley had told you about him."

"She did call me and told something about being an auntie now, she also told me about the stuff that's been happening to you and said that I should come live with you."

"Well she's right about the stuff part, I fell for this guy Grant and that's how Cody came into the picture. After moving closer to Kiley I fell for this other guy... Nicholas, and we didn't let things get passed kissing, thankfully. Lets go inside and talk."
"So what happened with Nicholas that was so horrible?"

"Well he asked me to move in with him, and Cody of course, I told him that I would think about it. Nora told me the other day that she saw him at the boutique making out with another woman, that blonde gold digger Dina Caliente."

"What you need is to be men free, except for Cody cause he's your son. Now that I'm here I can help you out more, how does that sound?"

"That sounds great Beth, you and I can share the back bedroom. Oh, don't mind Shadow, he's the black wolf that I adopted, he's a big teddy bear of a dog."
Arabella was making dinner when Beth was asking if she could tell Arabella something, when Arabella agreed to listen Beth told her...

"I ran into the new neighbor Drake, he seems like a really great guy, one to have as just friends"

"Oh really if he's that great then why don't you date him Beth"

"You know that I like my guys blonde"

"Yeah I know and I want you to know that I'm not getting involved with someone right now, especially with my luck"

"I know that you've been through a lot in the last few years but you need to be happy too"

"I'm happy as long as Cody is happy"

"You need to have happiness in your life aside from Cody and there's no point in deying it, so take a chance and see where it takes you"

"What's the point? I'll just get hurt in the end and I'll be dragging Cody along for the ride"

"Fine. I can't make you but at least think about it will ya"

"I'll think about it and no I'm not telling you what I think of Drake"
Nora's wedding came sooner than Arabella thought, Beth said that she would rather stay home with Cody than go to the wedding of someone she didn't know. So Arabella went by herself and had lots of fun with all her friends... As Arabella went to get herself a piece of wedding cake she saw Drake there and figured that Nora had something to do with him being there, but found out it was Beth's doing. Everyone was dancing and having a great time, Nora's cat was having fun watching everyone dance. After she got back home from the wedding Arabella joined her sister on the couch to watch tv, when Beth asked how it went Arabella told her...

"Well the wedding was beautiful, and it was great seeing all of her friends again"

"Was anyone there that you didn't expect?" Beth asked curiously

"As a matter of fact yes, Drake was there, he said that you talked him into going. Why Beth?"

"So that you could see that not all guys are jerks, if they were do you think Nora would have married Bo?"

"She wouldn't have, you're right about that. I'm just not sure I want to go through all that pain again."

"All I'm asking is you at least be friends with Drake, I'm not asking you to marry the guy"

"Ok, I'll be nice to him."
It was time to try and get Cody into the local private school, so Arabella made lobster thermidor for dinner. After a tour of the small but cozy trailer, it was time for dinner... The headmaster was impressed enough to accept Cody into the school. The next morning after Beth left for her job and Cody for school Arabella was left by herself, so she busied herself in her garden. After she watered the plants she realised that she missed working for Kiley, Eric closed the store after Kiley died. Which left Arabella out of work and that allowed her to focus on Cody more. She decided that she was going to look for a job, she brought the morning newspaper in and started looking. When she came across a teaching job at the local high school, so she applied for it... She got the job as a high school teacher, she was glad to be working again. When she came home after her first day at work, she found a note for her;

"Arabella,
That guy Kyle that I told you about... well he and I got married today. I hope that you're not mad at me, call me when you get this note please. Beth"

After reading her sister's note she called up Beth and asked her to come over.
Kyle and Beth getting married.... When Beth got there Arabella had a wedding present for the her, it wasn't much but Beth didn't care. They chatted for a while before Beth had to go home to Kyle. Arabella started inviting Drake over after Beth got married, she wanted a friend her own age to talk to that understood what she was going through as a single parent. Well their friendship started to take on a life of it's own... It's Cody's birthday again, now he's in high school and needs to think about college and scholarships to pay for his college education. Arabella spent her afternoons after work in her garden, she liked it there cause it was peaceful. After applying for scholarships, Cody received $10,500 simoleons for college and with that he went straight to college. Arabella adopted another dog this time an all white one, named Daisy. After Cody left for college Arabella looked out her kitchen window and saw an orange glow next to Kiley's grave.
