I never noticed Miles when my sims went to Uni. I'm glad Kara likes him, though. He looks cute!

And the family tree is a work of art, all thanks to Alex. His pollination efforts were beautiful. :'(

I never really had him focus on pollination--he was more of a fisherman--so I'm surprised he had so many kids! I blame the Fertility Treatment . . .

Anyway, I know this is the second update in, like an hour, but I'm all hopped up on University drama!

Chapter 46 - Uptown Girl

  Truth be told? I spend a lot of time on my computer outside the Grotto . . . but usually I'm checking out dating websites, not studying. I send a few messages, reply to a few requests, check out a few pictures. Sometimes I just sit with the blank screen and think.



  I've also started getting into guitar. I've always been interested, mostly because of this silly romantic fantasy I had when I was a teenager. I always imagined that I'd be at university, just walking through the park after class, and see a cute guy playing guitar. He'd glance up at me, wink, and start playing Uptown Girl or something.

  I'd drop a five dollar bill in his guitar case, and he'd stop playing, pick it up, and say, "Can I buy you some coffee?" I never really imagined anything past that--we'd just walk away, and our hands would touch and hold. This really proves that every teenage girl has a romantic fantasy.



  Did you know that the University has a library? I discovered it recently, and decided to spend a little quality time getting to know the place. Maybe catch up on studying, or reading, or spray-painting . . .



  The exams were practically effortless, and I passed with flying colors and a perfect GPA! Mum and Dad were super proud, even though I stayed with Miles over the weekend and enrolled in the next term, instead of coming home.



  He actually graduated, already, and earned his business degree! His overall grade as a C, for some reason--how is it possible to fail this stuff? I'm still proud, though.



  For the next week, I decided to stay in a dorm, just for the heck of it. There were only a few other people standing around outside, so I texted Miles to come help break the place in. He's also going for a Fine Arts degree this time around, but really just for fun.



  Our antics gave me unrivaled control of the only real bedroom in the place, since no one wanted to sleep there afterwards. I'm going to need to redecorate soon . . . maybe a little black wallpaper . . .



  I like Miles. I really do. He's nice, sweet, and funny. He's very muscular, and good-looking--symmetric features and all. He's a little goody-two-shoes, but never turns me in for whatever vandalism I committed. Once the police were after me, and he pretended to break his ankle on the front porch while I snuck out the back! Miles is a great person, and a wonderful boyfriend. I couldn't ask for anyone better.



  But then I saw her . . . this girl who I saw at the Student Union one day. She wasn't doing anything special, just passing through. But she was the most beautiful person I had ever seen. I felt something in that moment, and it was a thousand times more powerful than anything I had ever felt before. I drew sketch after sketch, trying to get every feature of her face perfectly on the paper.



  Bianca was her name. She had dark hair, light blue-green skin, beautiful eyes, lips, and nose, and a voice that seemed to echo when she said my name.



  That night, far past midnight, I called Bianca and asked her out. She agreed immediately, and I don't know what the best part of our date was. Maybe it's when we realized that we were made for each other--compatible signs and everything.



  Maybe it's when I spoke, with uncharacteristic shyness, of love. And she smiled.



  Maybe it's when I held her close, and she held me closer still.



  Perhaps my heart glowed the most when I stepped forward and kissed her, and the world burst into the rainbow fantasy Rosa and Great-Grandma Serena always seem to see.



  But as the elderly zombies popped up around us under the full moon, and Bianca and I stood with our arms around each other and kissed, again and again, I wanted to be living in that moment forever.



  At the park the next afternoon, I looked around at the other students and envied them. What happy, normal people with happy, normal lives! They don't know how very, very lucky they are . . .



  I'm ignoring my first three classes of the day and playing electric guitar. On thinking days, I paint, and on emotion days, I play guitar. This is, without a doubt, an emotion day. Though I feel less emotional than numb, now. I feel like I've just discovered happiness, and it's about to slip away.



  Finally, I drop the guitar and go to the Grotto. I open my laptop and type in the link Great-Grandma gave me. And I start reading, whispering the words softly as I read them.

  "I said some stuff to Eunice about eternal love and immortality and another life together and junk.  I called her my queen and my love and said I could even look past her ugly dress in the face of true passion.

She told me I was amazing and had changed her life.  That I'd rescued her from a curse, just like a real fairy tale, and that we'd be happy forever.
"

  Quietly, I watched the computer screen and daydreamed. It will never work for us, I know. There are too many people with us--and how will Miles feel? For me to move him in, only to marry Bianca . . . if only Rosa had been a handsome male hippie--but I don't mean that. It doesn't matter, anyway.



  She cornered me after I left class the next day. "How could you do this to me? I thought we had something special--but I heard that you have a boyfriend! Was this all some kind of joke? What, you think it's funny to kiss the weird girl?"



  "Please believe me," I begged, "I never meant for any of this to happen! I don't love Miles at all, I love you, but I don't know how to deal with any of this!" I froze as the words left my mouth, realizing they were true. Bianca walked away, and I couldn't do anything but watch her go.



  The next moment, I was panicked. Miles! What if he heard rumors about Bianca and me? I changed quickly and hurried to his swimsuit party at the fraternity.

  "Hey, babe," he greeted me, pulling me into a kiss. "You don't usually come to parties. What's up?"

  "Nothing," I said, casual as possible. "There are just some rumors going around campus about me, because my family's so famous. I know you're not shallow enough to think they're true!"



  Every morning, afternoon, and night I texted Bianca. The messages varied--some were rambling declarations of love, some plead for her to forgive me, and one or two were just the brief but effective Call me.



  "Bianca? You picked up! I just . . . I . . . I really, really want to apologize. And--I don't know what to say, honestly. Maybe we can't be together, but--hello?"



  At least class activities are improving. I formed a band with a couple other students and the teacher, but of course they're all attracted to me so it's one big flirt-fest.



  "I know this is, like, the millionth message I've left you--and I swear this isn't even exaggerating, I've been counting!--but please listen. I'm so incredibly sorry, and I love you. That's all I can say. If you're willing to try hanging out with me again, I'll be waiting down by the lake all night. And all day, too, if you're late or something. Look, exams are tomorrow--this is our last chance to be together."

Aw, what a great update! "Rainbow fantasy" being a particularly appropriate description! Anyway, it was really sweet to see Kara getting all mushy over someone. Miles will make for some good baby-donating-genes, I think, but I really wish there was room in the household to add Bianca! I also really loved the reference to the Classics.

And omg, you found a rainbow sim on campus?? How? What? Why? Zomg!

Let's face it--everyone would love Freddie. I have plans to pair every single one of my Elysi's up with him to see how the genetics play out, including Nick.

Thanks so much! I always love it when a long-time lurker comments--it feels like Christmas came early and gave me snow in California! Hopefully you won't have to wait long for the next update.

I'm honestly just echoing Kara's wishes and actions. She's constantly wishing to kiss Bianca, slow dance with Bianca, watch the stars with Bianca, go out on a date with Bianca--and before she met her, she popped tons of wishes for Miles. After that first date--nada. I felt so horrible trying to figure out how to make all of this happen! I'm so torn between moving in them both and waiting for Brandon to die, and just moving in Miles and having the baby right away. Sigh. I still feel so guilty.

Bianca is a true mystery. She's a human, but on the gray-green slider, and her voice echoes like a ghost. Maybe she's part alien? I seriously love her, though, I think she might be the most unique and beautiful in-game sims I've ever seen, and just the sort of person Kara would fall in love with.

I believe the answer is quite clear then. Die, Brandon, DIIEEEE!

  Wow, someone's excited! I'm actually hoping Brandon doesn't die, because Rosa still has 7 ice sculptures to go. And even if he does, I'll probably just leave the space open for Gen 5's spouse and kids! Although, I do have a kinda-spoiler that may work out.

You see, Miles is actually only a few days younger than Bree, and so I could technically work him in the same way I would Bree's spouse, and fill the empty space left by dead-Brandon with Bianca. However, this may or may not be a good thing in the end, so . . . yeah.

Anyone, please PM me if you have an opinion that must be shared because I am super-conflicted in this love triangle and need as much help as possible!

Haha!  Sorry I'm late to the party on this.  Freddie and Nick would make a lovely couple, lol.  I do hope that Eunice and Eden can serve as inspiration for Kara to go after what truly makes her happy ... and if Bianca can also somehow have a lovely green nooboo, well, that'd be just spectacular too!

Ahh! Kara is so very lovely as a young adult. And I love love LOVE her college life. It's so dramatic! I do feel sorry for her though. She just needs to follow her heart, though I can't exactly say I know what she should do since I am not part of an immortal dynasty. Following your heart must be hard in a dynasty. :c She needs a nooboo though. Ahh! I can't wait to see how it all comes together.

I wish I had a situation with a guy already living in the house (although I LOVE Rosa!) so that I could save space . . . grrrr . . . and Eden and Eunice were a huge inspiration to Kara (and me, too) although she (A.K.A. I) am not quite sure of how to deal with all of this!

She definitely had an exciting time in college, if somewhat less than productive  ;) . She's probably the most dramatically inclined sim I've ever had, but I feel so guilty for making her be with Miles instead of Bianca . . . sigh. I hope it all just works out in the end!

Chapter 47 - The Only Person in the World

  I drove to Senior Lake before the sun had set, and waited . . . and waited . . . and waited . . . it was past midnight, and I was losing hope, when a familiar figure finally appeared.

  "Bianca? You came! I, um . . . I got you flowers."



  "Kara," she answered gently, taking my hands in hers, "you know this isn't going to work out unless you tell Miles about us. If you could break up with him for me, then we could be together. I don't want to be the girl you cheat on your boyfriend with."



  "I want to, truly I want to. Nothing would make me happier than to be your girlfriend. I want us to be dating, then married, and I want us to have kids together . . . it's just not possible. Between my family and my boyfriend, it won't happen."



  She stiffened, with anger and hurt clear on her face and turned to leave. "Then I don't know what I'm even doing here! I'll just be going now, if that's okay with you and your--"

  In that moment, I knew what I had to do. What I wanted to do for the rest of my potentially immortal life. And for once, what I did was right and perfect and beautiful.



  They knew, when I went in to class. The article was everywhere, and there was a blurry picture of a neon-green girl and green-gray girl kissing by the lake. I could hear the whispers, and everyone was staring at me, but I hardly even cared.



  He knew, too. He confronted me after class and asked if it was true. And I lied, again. "I wasn't cheating on you--the picture was faked, obviously! Who's Bianca Frink, anyway? Oh, that girl? I barely know her! Maybe she pretended we were having a thing for publicity? At any rate, you're smart and sweet enough to trust your own girlfriend, right?"



  Even my naive boyfriend wasn't completely convinced. It was fine, though. That night, I went to another party and thoroughly reassured Miles that I loved him, only.




 
  The next morning was graduation, and I basically stood outside the stadium and waited with a guilty conscience. The universe is against me.



  I played guitar all alone for hours, feeling like the only person in the world. I wish I was the only person in the world--I wish Bianca and I were the only people in the world. Then, everything would be perfect and Miles wouldn't be hurt and my family wouldn't be surprised. There wouldn't be people to point at me or paparazzi to shout questions or passerby to snap pictures on their cell phones.



  I was the first one in line to receive the diploma. Of course there were whispers, and whistles, and laughter, but I kept my head held high. Who cares what these idiots think, anyway? They're going to die someday, and I won't.



  The night before, I had dreamt of the day of my graduation. Literally. In one dream, Miles met me outside the stadium, with us both in our robes, and we stood together and talked quietly and kissed, enfolded in each other's arms until the truck came to drive me home.



  In another dream, more of a nightmare, I searched for Bianca. I left the ceremony and looked everywhere, just wanting to see her one last time. I checked the library, where she spends much of her time.



  I knew, desperately, that I had to find her before it was too late. But the robes weighed me down, entangling my legs and feet as I sprinted through the night. I staggered through the door to find Bianca . . . dead. Dried up from the inside, out.



  The dream ended strangely, with me flirting with a pretty blonde named Sheryl who reminded me of the Sheryl from home, but much prettier. She was sweet, and friendly, but flirting with her made me feel sick in the pit of my stomach.



  Worry not, for the real thing was much nicer. Remembering the awful nightmare, I avoided Miles after the ceremony and instead tracked Bianca down. She agreed to one last date almost before the words had left my mouth.



  We drove to the park, the park where we had gone for our first-ever date that seems so long ago.



  Somehow, I had remembered to bring my portable stereo, and set it up on the grass with the music playing softly. We danced together, hands held tightly, and I could see Bianca's beautiful dark eyes glimmering with a coating of tears.



  Or perhaps it was only my own reflected crying that I could see.



  Towards the end, I tried to be happy for her sake. I laughed, and twirled, and kissed her again, but we both knew it was all fake. I was going home in an hour, and Miles would visit Sunset Valley the next day to meet my family, all of whom expected a proposal and wedding soon after. I hadn't even told anyone at home about Bianca . . . how could I expect them to understand?

Well, I'm glad that Kara got to graduation early so she could make sure to grab that extra trait slot! I wish I'd known about that first time around, haha! Anyway, I look forward to seeing what she decides to do when she gets home. The Elysi family strikes me as the supportive type, though. Grandma Serena would sit her down for icecream and cookies, and Nick, well--he married a ghost, so what can he say?  :P

I always just have my sims buy a soda and hang around the stadium until the ceremony starts . . . sometimes vending machines are a beautiful thing  :'( . Don't worry, the drama doesn't let up much at home! I don't know what it is about Kara that does this--she's just such a drama-creating sim!

Chapter 48 - Let's Talk About Love

  Not much had changed when I arrived home from school. All the adults have been very busy playing with Grandpa's kids. Mum's here teaching the artistic and virtuoso Vickie about the potential of a future in theater.



  When Grandpa himself isn't busy with the kids, he's hanging out with his new girlfriend, Tamsen. She's nice, but not exactly my type.



  It's good to know that I'm not the only person in the world with love conflicts. Grandpa is the perfect example of this. He was able to move on, but I know that in the back of his head he sees Lolita every time he looks at Tamsen.



  Mum and Dad as are . . . themselves, as ever. Do you know how depressing it is to come home from a love triangle of confusion, and to still be completely conflicted, only to find your parents making out in the kitchen? Not. Cool.



  I hate how perfectly happy they are, and the little smiles on their faces after they leave the bathroom, or bedroom, or tent, or igloo . . . I don't know if I can ever have that easy sort of relationship, where the feeling is mutual and there are no complications.



  Before Miles arrived, I built and decorated my new bedroom with the private art studio. The finishing touches were the hardest, but I felt a weight lift from my shoulders as I looked at the pictures on my wall.



  On the morning that his plane came in, I stole an envelope from Dad's office and scribbled furiously, listening for the opening door.

  Dear Bianca,
  I just wanted to let you know that, despite everything, I love you. And I want to be with you. Every time I close my eyes, I can see our future together. It's all just really complicated, and I'm probably going to get married and have a kid without you--but that came out wrong. I truly hope you're happy, and I try not to be jealous, picturing you with someone who actually deserves you.
  Love forever,
  Kara.




  The gate's buzzer sounded at precisely 9:02 A.M. I dropped the envelope in the mailbox and hurried out to welcome my boyfriend to Sunset Valley.



  I still think he's very handsome, but that doesn't appeal to me very much. If anything, he's too perfect--I would get bored waking up to that face every day. My favorite feature is his bright blue eyes, but then the blue reminds me of Bianca, and I excuse myself to use the bathroom for a few minutes. It's hard to tell, since Miles insists on a buzz cut, but his hair is actually auburn.





  He was more than a little surprised when I suggested driving out to the graveyard. I love graveyards--all of that art and history and beauty all bound up in one. For a while, we stood and talked, ankle-deep in snow. My feet were freezing, but I was busy studying his face, seeing if I really did feel anything for him.



  It was easier than I had expected, proposing. I felt like I was watching a movie of another girl, not actually going through the motions. Miles was excited, which helped take the edge off of it. I felt very, very cold--that was probably just the snow.



  I became the second bride in the family to throw a bachelorette party, although mine was considerably low-key. Just me, a couple guy friends, and drinks.



  I did get up and dance on a table, but only until the party drinks wore off and I was sober enough to spray everyone else with nectar.



  A few party dancers showed up, which was weird, considering everyone else at the party was a guy. For some reason they were dressed as firefighters, which I find both cliche and disgusting. I would have preferred policemen.



  One of the party dancers, Brad Bond, was very . . . interesting. We ditched the party, drove up to Stony Falls, and engaged in certain adult activities. An auspicious start to marriage, isn't it?



  I had an awful headache on the day of the wedding, and a nagging sense of guilt that wasn't helped by calling Bianca. "Hello? This is Kara--oh, you're at a party. With your girlfriend. That's . . . that's fine, I just wanted to know if you were having a good time. I'm, um, it's my wedding day. I hope you're happy and--bye."



  The grandparents keep talking about me when I'm not there. I know, because they make excuses to go down to the ambrosia room--checking the replicators, straightening the portraits, taking a nap. Yeah, right. They're worried about me, because I haven't said anything and I don't seem to enjoy hanging out with Miles and I've been sad ever since I got home. Well, they can figure it out by themselves.



  Our wedding was perfection, pure and simple. The chairs were aligned, my dress matched the arch matched the chairs matched the buffet, and the guests arrived at 2 o' clock on the dot. Rosalia was so excited for her best friend's wedding, I didn't have the heart to tell her about Bianca.

Kara isn't very in-love with Miles, in story or in game. She's popping zero wishes for him, which is actually a good thing because now I can institute the master plan . . . I hope.

:( it's really hard to watch someone get married to the wrong person.

This is probably the guiltiest I've felt due to Sims. Let's hope it gets better!

Saddest wedding ever. :( I hope things work out for Kara. I must say this for Miles, although he seems very boring (probably because Kara doesn't much care for him) he has absolutely lovely genetics. Dark brown skin, blue eyes, and auburn hair? Really? If she doesn't want him, I'll take him!

Saddest wedding ever. :( I hope things work out for Kara. I must say this for Miles, although he seems very boring (probably because Kara doesn't much care for him) he has absolutely lovely genetics. Dark brown skin, blue eyes, and auburn hair? Really? If she doesn't want him, I'll take him!

First sad wedding I've ever had. Miles is seriously good-looking (although his charm has worn off for me), and I can't wait to see how the nooboo looks.

Chapter 49 - Awkward Silence

  The wedding was set for two in the afternoon, but practically everyone was late so the actual ceremony took place at around five. Shadows had fallen across the sun, and we were all freezing in our formal clothes.



  It snowed so hard that the petals fluttering down from the arch were coated in white. I hate snow.



  Rosa didn't have such a great time--her young adult date had to be thawed out with one of her hairdryers, and the snow completely ruined her shoes.


 
  After all the cake and dancing, I felt much too tired for the Love Shack Woohoo. Which is, apparently, a first in our family. Don't these people sleep at all?



  But apparently "tradition is important," or something dumb like that, so we got to business anyway. It wasn't exactly our first Woohoo, so not a huge deal, in my opinion.



  I just tried to get it all over with and went straight to bed. Mum and Dad were happily kissing, since they enjoy that sort of thing.



  Truth be told, the parents of the bride probably had a better night than the bride herself.



  The next few days passed peacefully. I spent much of my time in my bedroom, painting. Miles decided to become a doctor, and more often than not could be found reading logic books on the bed. We spoke little, and the silence was sometimes awkward.



  Since you probably didn't come here only for depressing news, I should tell you that Tamsen had triplets. I don't know how Grandpa keeps doing it, considering he doesn't have Fertility Treatment or anything! Here's his son, Lavar Clemons.



  Tristan Clemons inherited his grandpa's red hair.



  Donte Clemons was both younger, and darker, than his brothers.



  Lavar celebrated his birthday earlier than the others, and is a rather handsome young man. Like all of Grandpa's kids, he has excellent traits and will definitely be successful in life.



  Grandpa spends all of his time over there, trying to be the best father for his children.



  He tried to prepare his sons for the battles of life--both good and bad. Tristan doesn't seem very interested.



  Pregnancy must be messing with my brain, because I find this very sweet and adorable and awwww. Can't wait for the hormones to stop . . . anyway, I'm hoping for a girl. I haven't asked Miles about it. Has he even noticed?



  Mum and Dad were very happy and excited, of course, but--they're busy! Dad is so much older than Mum that she wants to spend as much time with him as possible, and they still don't seem to have noticed that Miles and I aren't very love, so to speak.



  My days were spent painting in my room, painting the visions and dreams that surfaced in my mind. I especially love this piece of artwork.



  "Hi, Bianca? This is Kara. Again. I just wanted to tell you that I'm pregnant! I don't know why I'm telling you this, but I thought you might like to know, or something . . . yeah. I'm just going to hang up now, okay?"



  In these times, I envy Rose. She doesn't know what she's in for.

Dang.  This is getting really dark.  I kinda feel bad for Miles, actually.  Poor patsy.

It is indeed. I am really enjoying the depth though. Even though it's kind of depressing. I like it. I look forward to seeing the poor nooboo, I hope Kara is a loving mother and that poor Miles dies a mercifully early death.

Kara isn't a very happy-go-lucky person--she's much too rebellious for that. Don't worry, everything works out in the end!

Hahaha. By the way, Miles is actually a day younger than Bree--so creepy, so many ways. At least he'll die fast!

Its the heartless but often times honest truth about dynasty spouses: hurry up and move on, dang it! Well, I hope Miles makes room so Kara can invite her real love into the home instead! Ut oh, what's in store for Rose, I wonder?

Thanks so much! I always love having a new reader  ;D

Maybe I'll make him a firefighter . . . for no reason, really . . . and nothing is in store for Rose! At least, I have nothing in store for Rose, but knowing my sims she'll end up with two boyfriends and a random child that came from nowhere.
