I'd love to see the blue hair continue, but I'm sure the babe will be adorable whatever the coloring.

Fingers and toes crossed for a blueboo!

Many congratulations Mika and hoping for a blue haired nooboo.

There shall be another rainboo in the family, but I won't say when ;)

I think it has been said before, but I do love your wedding area. It's absolutely gorgeous.

Thanks, Tixxis! I actually really like designing wedding areas. I mean, if they're going to be used in the family for a while, they should be something nice to look at  ;D

I've only just finished Chapter 35 but this story is brilliant! Can't wait til I'm all caught up!

Thanks, Magpie! Glad you're enjoying the story so far.



Chapter 74: Til Death Do Us Part

Poor Leonardo was a little stunned when his adult birthday rolled around. He still had awhile to go before he could freeze his age. Thankfully, Aunty Starling was at the ready with some young again potions...



...and a mirror so Leonardo could slick his hair back to its usual style.



Being such a sweetie, Leonardo was more concerned with taking care of me than his hairstyle.



He made arrangements for me to spend a nice, relaxing day at the spa. I got about part of the way through my spa package when I went into labor.



I was relieved that Leonardo's time as a firefighter helped him to remain calm under pressure. Mom had told me the horror stories of how everyone lost their senses when she went into labor with me. I had to admit that the image was pretty funny but did concern me a bit. Again, so relieved that my hubby could stay cool and collected.



Some time later, Leonardo and I were the proud parents to a gorgeous little boy. We named him Phoenix. He was an Eccentric Genius.



Aunty Staring agreed to let Phoenix share a room with her. When it came time for Mom and Dad to...leave us, he would move into their room. However, there was no way that I was going to think about that right now.



Mom and Dad were just happy to be around and have the opportunity to meet and spend time with their grandchild.



Soon enough, it was time for Phoenix to age up into a toddler. We were all so excited to see who Phoenix was going to take after.







My gorgeous little guy looked just like his daddy, but had my eyes. Those piercing yellow eyes have been passed down for generations.



Leonardo was so happy to have Phoenix and was just a doting daddy. He had no qualms about teaching his son all of the important skills he would need, including how to use the potty.





Phoenix certainly enjoyed spending a lot of time with his father.



While I admired Leonardo's enthusiasm for his son, I had a talk with him about letting my parents spend some time with Phoenix and help to teach him his skills. Leonardo understood why this was important and agreed.



My sweet little guy had his skills down in no time and was soon able to enjoy his toddlerhood.



Mom had returned home from an extra long shift as an astronaut and was getting ready to head upstairs to teach Phoenix some things, since she and Dad both had invaluable wisdom to impart on their grandson. However, life had other plans...





Mom pleaded with Grim to give her more time to spend with Phoenix. His child birthday was right around the corner and she wanted to be here for that. However, Grim would not relent.



Everyone was completely and utterly heartbroken that Mom had passed. Dad's heart and world fell apart immediately and he knew that, even though he loved his family dearly, he couldn't bear to be apart from his love. A mere moments after Mom passed away, Dad followed right behind her.



Dad accepted his fate with grace and willingly shook Grim's hand. He knew that Mom was waiting for him.



RIP Apollo Sakura, aged 54.



RIP Juniper Sakura, aged 54





FYI: Mika's hubby is actually named Leonardo. I looked at the wrong name on my notes... ::) Whoops...

It was certainly touching that Apollo and Juniper couldn't bear to be apart, though it was quite sad when it happened. They were such an adorable couple and I definitely missed them after they died.

Aww, thanks, Magpie  ;D I'm glad you're enjoying everything so far. It was a fun challenge and I had fun writing it too.



Chapter 75- Pitter Patter

The house was suddenly extremely quiet now that Mom and Dad were gone. We all turned our attention to Phoenix and did our best to move on with life. Leonardo did his best to console me. We talked to each other about possibly adding to our family. Like I said, the house was too quiet and we could really use the pitter patter of little feet to help make things a little cheerier.







Because my Mom was an imaginary friend, I also was part imaginary friend. In fact, I had the ability to turn into toy form whenever I wanted to. Phoenix, on the other hand, was human. He did embrace his imaginary friend heritage, though, which made me smile.



Phoenix was right on schedule with all of his toddler skills, so I was able to turn my attention back to my lifetime wish. I spent quite a few hours at the chess set and finally completed my lifetime wish. It was a great moment amidst the sadness.



I would say that I must have partied too hard when the nausea hit, but I knew why I was feeling this way.



Leonardo and I were going to be parents again.



Soon, it was time for Phoenix to age up into a child. I couldn't believe that my little boy was going to be a child already!









Leonardo and Aunty Starling while I helped my son pick out his new wardrobe (no heavy lifting for me!).



Here is little Phoenix.



My little guy is quite a handsome young man!



Phoenix always enjoyed playing with puzzles and blocks. Any opportunity he had to put things together and create something, Phoenix took full advantage of it. So, for his birthday, Leonardo and I bought Phoenix an inventing table. He was a natural at it.



Shortly after Phoenix had his birthday, I started thinking about an old saying that is used a lot in sports: no pain, no gain. I had to go through the pains of labor to have my new baby.



Leonardo and I were pros at this point, so, the moment the labor pains hit, he rushed me off to the hospital.



We were so happy to bring our little girl into the family. We named her Celestia and she is a Virtuoso who Hates the Outdoors.



Between Phoenix running to school everyday and taking care of a new baby, the days went by pretty quickly. I was stunned when it was time for Phoenix to age up into a teenager already.







Here is teenage Phoenix.



Already an Eccentric, Perfectionist Genius, Phoenix became a Workaholic this birthday.



Now that Phoenix was a teenager, we were all looking forward to Celestia's birthday to see who she would resemble the most.

I was quite surprised when Celestia came out as a rainboo. She turns out to be quite the cutie, especially since she seems to get all of the traits from the earlier generations of Dragon Valley.

Phoenix is beautiful! Another gorgeous aging-up screenshot too. I can't wait to see the little greenboo all aged up, cute no doubt. Congrats to Mika for finishing her life time wish.

Thanks, Playalot! Mika was one of the easiest heirs to complete, which was such a nice change of pace  ;)



Chapter 76- A Glimpse into the Past

After Phoenix, it was time for Celestia to age up. The mascot for the local university stopped by to drop off an admissions test for Phoenix, but we all ignored him. Besides, my little boy could not be ready for college yet. It was just like yesterday that he was in diapers!

Phoenix: MOM! I WAS NOT IN DIAPERS YESTERDAY!

Fine, honey, I'll cross that out. No I won't.





Celestia got hair color and eye color from our ancestors. How gorgeous!



Aunty Starling was looking forward to helping out with Celestia because she was the last toddler that was going to be in the family for a while. I mean, Phoenix would have a family, but he would have to move away. I don't want to think about that quite yet, though!





Between all of us chipping in, Celestia had her toddler skills down in no time.



Phoenix was also doing some skilling of his own. He spent every waking moment at his inventing table. Amazingly, he managed to max the skill as a teen! I'm not surprised because my boy is a genius.



As anyone in my family can tell you, time sure flies. It seemed as though Celestia just entered her toddler years and it was now time for her to age up into a child.







Here is little Celestia.



She gained the Genius trait.



Being an absolutely awesome aunty, Aunty Starling got started with Celestia on her school work. Celestia was a genius, so she had an A for school in no time.



Phoenix's teen years seemed to go by even faster than Celestia's toddler days. That probably was because he was up in his room in front of his inventing table majority of the time. Phoenix would come downstairs to eat, go to school, and to celebrate his sister's birthday. Not surprisingly, when it came to Phoenix's young adult birthday, he aged up by himself in front of his inventions.







Here is young adult Phoenix.



His final trait was Nurturing, which would be very helpful in the medical career since Phoenix's lifetime wish was to become a World Renowned Surgeon.



I can't believe that my time as the active heir is up. It's been a blast and I know that my baby will take us to the finish line!

Mika Sakura



What's up? I'm Phoenix! So, my mom is now off duty as the active heir and it is now my time to serve. But no pressure. As a future doctor, I know what it is like to be under pressure, so I can totally handle it. The one thing I can't handle is seeing my little sister get older! I cannot believe she's going to be a teen already!



I'm not a parent or anything yet, but that look kind of concerns me...





Here is teenage Celestia.



It was kind of cool that she got Grandma Soleil's hair color. Anyway, she became a Heavy Sleeper this time around.



I couldn't wait to get cracking on my skills and requirements! Dragon Valley Hospital, here I come!

That was one of the reasons that I went with the medical career. Opportunities a-plenty!

Celestia is so pretty and well done Mika for your part in the dynasty!  Phoenix is still a gorgeous sim! I'm sure he is going to smash through his requirements very easily.

Except for his career, which obviously takes some time, Phoenix did complete his requirements at a rather good pace.

Maxing a skill as a teenage without caffeine? I'm impressed!  :)

I was also very impressed! Thinking about it now, things just aligned really nicely for Phoenix. Starling tutored him, so he didn't have to worry about school. I let him skip homework and do it the next day during school with the "work on late homework option," so he could spend more time inventing. He got a head start on the skill as a child and I also believed that he aged up on or near a weekend. With all of those things combined, Phoenix was able to max the skill.

Time really fly, Celestia is gorgeous. And that eye color is a strong gene.

Good luck to Phoenix in his career!  :)

I was really surprised that the yellow eyes were so strong in this world. I would have preferred purple myself, but I am a sucker for original townie genes.



Chapter 77- Goodbye Dragon Valley (Part I)

Celestia was always interested in music. Now that she was a teenager, she was able to start playing with some instruments. Celestia wasn't sure which instrument she wanted to play first, so I picked at random for her. I closed my eyes and picked at random...and the winner is the guitar!



As for me, I had fun doing some other things.



I started blowing up some of the celebrity gifts so that I could collect some more scrap for my inventions. I had a pretty cool invention in the works that I putting together and wanted to get it done as soon as possible.



I created my first Simbot! It was totally amazing!!



Celestia was celebrating my accomplishment too! Or...it was her birthday. One or the other.



Yep. It was her birthday.





Here is my baby sister, all grown up!



Her final trait was Vegetarian. Celestia, courtesy of her love of music, decided to become a Hit Movie Composer.



A few days later, Celestia started her job and she was doing very well. She continued to work on her guitar skill and ended up maxing the skill a few days into young adulthood.



With the guitar skill maxed, Celestia then turned her attention to the logic skill. I decided to work with my little sister and the two of us had a ton on fun playing chess together for hours on end.



Of course, it was sometimes difficult to get through a game because, as a doctor, I was always on call. Celestia was a great sis because she understood that duty calls sometimes.







Because of my service to Dragon Valley, the mayor contacted me and informed me that I was going to get an award. How cool! I don't do it because I want the fame and fortune. Instead, I do it because I like to help others. That is a very important thing in my family, so it was kind of natural to me.



Now that Celestia and I were young adults, Mom and Dad got to spend a lot of time together, just the two of them.



Well, I wasn't a young adult for too much longer...







Dad decided that Celestia and I were spending too much time sitting around and playing chess. Instead, we needed to get up and get active! I, thankfully, had to run off to work. Celestia was not so lucky. Sorry, sis!



It turns out that I lucked out in more ways than one. With this last shift at work, I got my final promotion!



While that was great, it then hit me that it meant that it was time for me to move someplace new to finish up the last part of the dynasty. Oh dear...



In any case, there was no turning back now. I was complete with my requirements and would now have to move forward with my life...

We have a winner! Well done, KRae  ;D

Well done Phoenix! I'll miss Dragon Valley and have no clue which world the Sakura family will continue their story in. lol  ::) But I can't wait to find out.

All shall be revealed in this chapter  ;D



Chapter 78- Goodbye Dragon Valley (Part II)

I knew the moment had come to pack my bags and leave Dragon Valley. I was a little nervous, I admit, but I knew that I had to do this for my family. They were counting on me to bring this challenge to its conclusion. Before I left, I made sure to find every member of my family and say goodbye.







I made sure to give Aunty Starling a big, big thank you hug for all that she did to help me out while being the heir. At least now she got to take a vacation!



I made the call to the realtor, ready to move on to my new place. I packed my bags and then hopped into a taxi to head to the airport. It was a pretty uneventful flight, which did good for my already frayed nerves. When the flight ended, I grabbed my bags and got ready to move into my new place. However, as I left the taxi cab and stepped onto the property of my new house, I found myself somewhere else entirely.



It took me a minute to realize where in the sim universe I was, but then I remembered what Aunty Starling told me. This was Grim's HQ!



At the end of the long hallway, I spied a person standing in another room. I felt that I needed to talk to this person. I made my way down the long road to find her.



"Hey, I'm Phoenix Sakura. I think I was sent here because I was about to move to a new town for my family?" I told this woman.



"Your powers of observation and deduction are very sharp, Dr. Sakura," the woman replied. "You were, in fact, brought here because there are some things that need to be taken care of because you can move into your new town."





"Like what?" I questioned. "I thought I did everything on my end of the bargain."
"You cannot live in your new town with the millions that your family has amassed while in Dragon Valley," the woman, Julie, explained. "You need to start fresh in your new town, with only $4000 simoleans to your name."
"Yikes, that's harsh," I remarked.
"I don't make the rules," Julie replied flatly.



"Well, no turning back now," I mumbled as I forked over all of my family's hard earned cash to Julie.



"Thank you, Dr. Sakura," Julie said. "And I would like to add a congratulations to your family. When Grim issued this challenge, I don't think he was expecting you all to make it this far."
"Thanks, I guess," I replied.



"You can return to your new life by leaving back down that hallway. You will be transported back to your new home."
"Thanks, Julie," I replied. "Oh, and don't work too hard. That amount of stress could, well, kill you."
"Sir, I work with Grim. Death comes with the territory."
"Yeah, I see that."

After that, I turned and walked as fast as I could down the hallway.



I was so relieved when the darkness was replaced with brightness and sunshine. Even though I had only a few simoleans left in my pocket, I was never so happy to see my new home in Starlight Shores.



The first thing I did was follow Aunty Starling's advice and start a little garden to help build a steady income for my family.





Family. That was the next thing I needed to do. I needed to find love. I didn't expect that to be easy, but life seemed to have other plans. I decided to take a stroll around town when I came across a cute girl talking with someone in her yard.



I just had to go over to her and say hello.



I discovered that her name was Lanya. She was so sweet and lovely. I don't know what came over me, but I had to do something to let her know how I felt.



Thankfully, it seemed like Lanya felt the same way.



I asked her to be my girlfriend and she said yes.





Before it went any further, I told Lanya about the dynasty. I wanted her to have a chance to say no and to live a normal life if that's what she wished. But, Lanya told me that she wasn't sure how she could help, but she was willing to give it a shot. I proposed right then and there. Lanya was surprised but she smiled and said yes.





The Sakura's have landed in Starlight Shores. The theme for this world will be Colors.
