Chapter 27- The Final Bridgeport Heir

With my nectar being served at some of the finest restaurants and locations in Bridgeport, I was starting to gain some notoriety in the nectar making world. In fact, I was even awarded a medal of honor at City Hall.



It was perfect timing that I received the medal when I did because I was quickly closing in on completing my requirements. I continued working on my last few requirements, which was to continue to work on crafting the finest nectar.



I whipped up a few more bottles of perfect nectar and completed my requirements. I smiled immediately at the realization and felt so relieved that this great weight was lifted off my shoulders. Plus, now Lucky and I could finally have a child, which we have been wanting for quite some time.



I had done it. I completed my requirements and was really looking forward to bringing in the next heir.



The Third Heir

Name: Aspen Sakura
Born: Week 13, Day 7
Traits: Hates the Outdoors, Easily Impressed, Perfectionist, Lucky, Born Saleswoman
Unique Maxed Job: Nectar Maker
Two Best Friends: Wogan Hemlock, Buck Mercado
Three Skill Challenges: Mix Master, Flavorful Feet, Nectar Maker
Four Opportunities: Guitar Up!, Some Hogan Rock, In the End, Musical Assembly
Items Added to Collection: Nectar bottles
Career Rewards: Nectar Making Certificate, Nectar Making Trophy

Lifetime Wish: Bottomless Nectar Cellar
Favorite Color: Hot Pink
Spouse: Lucky Sakura



I had been out running some errands when I discovered the wonderful news: Lucky and I were going to be parents!



I quickly rushed home to tell Lucky the good news. He had just come inside from helping Uncle Dayton with the garden when I told him. Lucky was thrilled.





Lucky sent me off to a spa treatment as a surprise, which I was grateful for. While he waited for me, he found a nice spot on the beach to work on his fishing skill for his job at the science lab.



The spa did certainly help to relax me and ease my aches and pains but that didn't last too long. I went into labor a short time later after taking a brief swim in the local pool.





Lucky and I rushed to the hospital to bring in our little baby.



A short time later, Lucky and I were over the moon to welcome in our little girl, Vienna. Her traits are Loves the Outdoors and Excitable.



It was a bittersweet moment to remodel my Dad's parents room but we needed to do so for little Vienna. Her favorite color is white, so we decorated accordingly.



Now that my time as the active heir was coming to an end, I thought about what I wanted to do next. I decided that I wanted to stick around for a while to help my daughter in her requirements, so I took a potion to help me do that.



Dad was so in love with his granddaughter. He was relieved that he got a chance to see her and spend time with her before he needed to sacrifice himself to the dynasty.



In addition to Vienna's arrival, we had more good news in the family. Uncle Dayton reached the top of the military and became an astronaut. That worked out really well because he could participate in his job while still helping out in the dynasty like he has been for all these years.



Because of Uncle Dayton's great news, Lucky and I agreed to let him bring Vienna up to the cake on her birthday.







Here is Vienna. Too. Cute. For. Words.

Congratulations to Aspen, I love the nectar making career. And welcome to Vienna, same name I used for one of my heirs in my Life State dynasty  ;)

Vienna is such a pretty name  :D



Chapter 28- Treasured Moments

I began working with Vienna on her toddler skills. We started by learning how to talk. Vienna seemed particularly interested when I spoke to her about the plants that I used for my nectar making.



Now that Dad was getting older, Uncle Dayton wanted to spend as much time as he could with his nephew.



They attempted to play catch. I was afraid someone was going to get hurt...





Later that night, Mom and Dad went to bed. Mom woke up, feeling somewhat funny, and we soon knew why.





We awoke to hearing Dad's cries and we all rushed into his room.



We weren't ready for Mom to go but she gracefully accepted her handshake from Grim and then she was gone.



RIP Nicola Valla, aged 57





With Mom's passing, Dad knew that his time could come at any moment. He wanted to spend as much time as he could with little Vienna.



Lucky and I agreed to let Dad take over working with Vienna on her toddler skills so that he could make the most of his time left.



Vienna seemed pretty happy with spending all this time together with her grandpa.







Lucky smiled when he brought in a gift one morning that was addressed to Vienna. It was a doll, similar to the one that I had received as a child. I smiled as well because I knew that gift was so very special.



Vienna got to enjoy a little bit of play time before it was time for her to age up into a child. We let Dad bring her up to the cake.







While Vienna went to go pick out her new wardrobe, Lucky and I updated her room.



And here is big girl Vienna.



She gained the Family Oriented trait.



And, speaking of family, Dad immediately set out to work on helping Vienna start off school with stellar grades. She sat there and listened to everything that Dad had to say. I know that these are some of the memories that we would all treasure as the dynasty went on.

RIP Nicola, 57 is a pretty good age. Vienna looks adorable as a toddler and a child. I'm dreading the next post, I hope it doesn't involve what I think it will.

It does, sadly  :(



Chapter 28- Tombstone

Lucky was steadily rising in his career. He came home one afternoon with a bright smile on his face, telling me that he had completed his lifetime wish of becoming a Creature Robot Cross Breeder.



Even though I could no longer see it, both Vienna and Lucky told me that Vienna's doll had grown up along with her.



She seemed pretty excited, especially since we told her about her Imaginary Friend heritage. Vienna herself was not an IF, but she did descend from the life state.



Dad was watching Vienna play with her doll when he stood up from the table with a frown.



We thought he might be answering his phone call but what was really happening was far worse that we could have imagined.



We knew that this moment was going to come- had to come- but hoped it wouldn't come for quite some time. Dad, however, knew that he did all he could for the dynasty and he was ready to be reunited with Mom, his parents and his grandparents. He shook Grim's hand and accepted his final requirement with grace.



Vienna now had the final tombstone needed to move to the next town.

Thanks for everything, Dad. We won't let your sacrifice go to waste.

RIP- Kenai Sakura, aged 65





Vienna was very saddened at the loss of her grandfather. We all were hurt by the loss of Dad, but she took it especially hard. She knew that he gave himself up so she could succeed. That night, Vienna asked if she could lay in my bed until she fell asleep. I agreed and read her a bedtime story. It was one of the books that Dad read all the time about logic.



That made Vienna feel a little better about the whole situation.



It also helped that Vienna's next birthday was right around the corner. She was looking forward to finally being able to start working on her skills.









Here is teenage Vienna.



As expected, she gained the Green Thumb trait.



After picking out her new wardrobe, there was only one thing on Vienna's mind.



Before allowing her to go help him in the garden, Uncle Dayton made sure that Vienna had good grades for school.



It was late in the evening when Uncle Dayton and Vienna finished studying but that didn't stop her from venturing out in the garden. Vienna had been waiting for this moment for quite a while.



Thanks to Uncle Dayton, Vienna was able to join the gardener career rather quickly. They knew that if her crops were anywhere near as good as his, Vienna would be a gardening hero in no time.



Back at home, I felt a little sick. I thought that maybe I was stressed out with all that had been happening lately...



But that wasn't the case at all. Lucky and I were expecting again!

Welcome back  ;D

Gardening definitely was a breeze with Uncle Dayton's help!



Chapter 30- Gardening Master

Vienna spent most of her time in the garden, but she did make time to go to prom when it arrived. She decided to just go with a group of her friends instead of with anyone in particular. Regardless, Vienna had a wonderful time and was even voted Prom Queen.



Of course, I found all that information out while I was at the hospital. Why? I went into labor.



We had a little boy that we named Ashton. He was such a little doll, just like Vienna when she was just a nooboo. With her young adult birthday right around the corner, that seemed like ages ago. That being said, we were all very happy to have another baby in the house. Since Vienna had to move away before she could have a family, this was such a welcome addition to the family.



Speaking of Vienna's birthday, she and Ashton were both aging up on the same day. Vienna went first.







Just like me, she aged up in some unfortunate attire...



Vienna didn't seem concerned about that though because she was more interested in seeing what her little brother looked like.







After the birthday celebration, Vienna took Ashton and they both went to get new outfits. Here is Vienna.



Her final trait was Gatherer.



And here is Ashton. He got my hair and rogue spiceberry eyes (I used those eyes for my founder in my first life states attempt).



And, now that Vienna was a young adult, my time as the active heir was officially over.

Farewell,

Aspen Sakura



Hello! My name is Vienna and I am the last heir for my family's dynasty in Bridgeport. While it was exciting that I would one day get to venture off on my own in a brand new city, I was saddened at the thought of having to leave my family. Especially my little brother. He was just the cutest little thing and I would probably miss him growing up into a handsome young man.



But I know that my family sacrificed a lot for me to get to this point, so I was just going to have to enjoy what time I had to spend here in Bridgeport.









Ashton quickly mastered his skills and then was given some play time before he was set to have his child birthday.





I got to have some play time with Ashton before it was time for his nap. Once he was asleep, I headed downstairs to the garden to work. I was extremely excited when I maxed the gardening skill!



And, I got a promotion at the same time. Not bad for a day's work!





Vienna's time in Bridgeport is winding down fast. Any guesses on where she's going to end up?

Sorry to be so repetitive but Vienna is so beautiful and Ashton with his eyes. I'm guessing Monte Vista is the next world? Her name makes me think she's heading for somewhere European.

I wanted it to be random, so I rolled for a random town for each moving heir. It turned out pretty nicely for each one, the new world seemed to fit them.

It was an indirect pun. I realized that I did that when I was proofreading and decided to keep it  ::)

No worries! Vienna was just plain gorgeous. I think she is definitely one of the prettiest sims I've ever had, especially because she does not have the generic EA face.



Chapter 31- Goodbye Bridgeport (Part I)

It was time for my baby brother to age up again. I was happy that I was still here to see him grow up into a little boy.





Here is Ashton.



Like Uncle Dayton, Ashton likes the color orange, so he dressed accordingly. Isn't he just the cutest little brother ever?



Speaking of Uncle Dayton, he and Ashton were the best of friends.



While Uncle Dayton was working with Ashton and Mom and Dad were enjoying some time together, I continued working on my requirements. It was a short time later that I completed the last bit that I needed. It was a bittersweet moment, for sure, knowing that I completed all of my requirements. It was a huge weight off of my shoulders, but I knew that I needed to leave my family now. Then again, I was looking forward to the opportunity to move out on my own and experience life outside of Bridgeport.

Chapter 31- Goodbye Bridgeport (Part II)

The time had come for me to say goodbye to my home in Bridgeport. I took my sweet time to say goodbye to my family, making sure to give each family member a big hug and telling them how much that I was going to miss them. I started with my little brother. I told Ashton that I was proud of him and that I knew that he was going to become a wonderful young man in the near future.



After Ashton, I went and found my Dad and Uncle Dayton.



I gave Uncle Dayton an extra big hug. I thanked him for all of his hard work and he congratulated me on making it this far. He also imparted some wisdom to me on how to make things successful in my new town and what I needed to accomplish as the new founder.



The last person I needed to find was my Mom.



Mom assured me that I would be fine. I took a deep breath and made the phone call to move out to the next town.



I wasn't sure where I wanted to go, so I closed my eyes and selected the first place I pointed to on my phone: Hidden Springs. It sounded beautiful and, as the town came into view, it was just as amazing as I pictured. I moved into my new place, ready to start my new life.



The first thing that I needed to do was start a garden. It was one of my favorite things to do and it was a great source of income.



I just finished planting the last of the seeds when I suddenly was transported to some strange place.



I looked around, confused and bewildered at where I could have possibly been transported to. As I was contemplating my surroundings, I saw a lady in business attire coming toward me.



"Vienna Sakura?" the woman asked.
"Yes, that's me." I confirmed. "Who are you?"
"I am Julie," she replied.



Julie? I thought back to what Uncle Dayton had told me before I left Bridgeport. I remember him telling me that his mother, Great Grandma Niji, had made a deal with Grim and, as the moving heir, I would most likely have to meet with Grim or his assistant before starting off on my own. Apparently, I needed to relinquish all of my family's hard earned money and start fresh in a new town, just like Grandma Niji and Grandpa Makoto. This must have been the woman that Uncle Dayton mentioned.

"You're Grim's assistant, right?" I asked.
"Yes, that is correct."



"As per your grandmother's agreement with Grim, you must turn in all of your simoleons before beginning the next part of the dynasty." Julie stated flatly.



"Oh, right," I said reluctantly.
I wasn't looking forward to that part but knew that I had to do it, so I handed over everything, save for $4000 simoleons, to Julie.
"There you are," I told her.





"Thank you. You will now be returned to Hidden Springs." Julie said.



"That's it?" I questioned.
"Yes." Julie stated.
I nodded.
"Okay. Thanks, I suppose," I told Julie.



"Have a nice day, Ms. Sakura," Julie said before I was suddenly transported back to Hidden Springs.

Julie will actually be back a couple of times.

Congrats to Vienna and the first set of Sakuras! Looking forward to seeing who Vienna's spouse will be  :)

All shall be revealed in this chapter  ;)



With the change in location, there will be a change in the name theme too. The name theme for Hidden Springs will be: Nature.



Chapter 32- Securing the Riverhawk

I knew that I needed to find a special someone quickly in order to bring in the next generation. However, I had no idea where to start. I was new in town and really didn't know where to look. So, I decided to start by going to the park. A little fresh air always did me good. Who knows? Perhaps I would meet a nice gentleman there.



I was approached by a man while I was at the park and we began to talk. He turned out to be a really, really nice guy and we shared many of the same interests. His name was Nicholas Riverhawk.



After a while, I decided to make my move.



And Nicholas seemed to be on board with it.



Before things went any further, I stopped and told Nicholas that I had something important to tell him. I told him all about the dynasty. Nicholas stood there quietly, listening to me speak. I was half expecting him to just get up and run away part of the way through my explanation but, thankfully, he didn't. In fact, he said that he would be more than willing to help me take on the challenge. I knew that I had found the right one. I asked him to be in a relationship right then and there.







And he said yes!



Nicholas was so very sweet. He said, why wait?
"Vienna, it is super important that we move things along quickly, right?" Nicholas asked.
"Yes, that's right." I confirmed.
"So why wait?" Nicholas said. "Why don't we get married today?"



I happily agreed and Nicholas and I got married that afternoon.









Nicholas and I then went upstairs to bring in the next heir to the dynasty.



Nicholas decided to update his wardrobe now that he was in the dynasty.





He was in the Journalism career so Nicholas began to work on his writing skill while I continued working on the garden.



Nicholas did take a break to help me out in the garden too.



The gardening duties would be transferring all to Nicholas for the time being because I found out that I was pregnant! He told me that I would be taking it easy from this moment on. What a sweetheart!



Things went by pretty quickly. Nicholas and I were so excited to be parents. When I went into labor, I was anxious but very thrilled to know that our son or daughter would be here very soon.



Nicholas rushed me to the hospital.



A short time later, we were overjoyed to welcome our son into the world. We named him Forest and he had the Artistic and Excitable traits.



We transformed one of the extra rooms that we had downstairs into a bedroom for Forest. His favorite color was spiceberry, so we decorated accordingly.

Forest is the perfect nature-themed name. Nicolas is looking hot, I'm a bit obsessed with him, lol, so I'm super happy you and Vienna choose him.

The nice part is that he and Vienna really loved each other. They would roll wishes for and autonomously do romantic actions to each other all the time.

with two cute parents, I'm sure Forest will be very handsome.

Forest turned out to be a cutie  :)



Chapter 33- Two Little Riverhawks

I woke up the next morning not feeling so well.



However, some quick hugs and kisses with my little boy made everything feel so much better.



But I soon found out the reason behind my ailment.



I told Nicholas the good news as he was coming home from the store with a birthday cake for Forest. He was over the moon. With bright smiles on both of our faces, we set up the birthday cake and brought Forest to it to celebrate his toddler birthday.







Here is Forest. He got my hair and a lovely set of purple eyes that we're not really sure where they came from...



We immediately got started on working on Forest's toddler skills.









We managed to get through all of Forest's toddler skills right at the perfect time. I went into labor later that night.





We were pleased to welcome our daughter, Willow, into the family.



Nicholas was playing with Forest when I came back to tell him the good news.



Both boys were so happy to meet the newest member of the family. While we put Willow down for a nap, I took some time to play with Forest before it was time for his child birthday.



Before Forest's birthday rolled around, it was suddenly time for Willow's birthday.





Here is Willow. She has my hair but otherwise she is all Nicholas.



My two little Riverhawks  ;D

Aww, they are both so adorable. I love the raised area for the bath.

This house had a really nice design. I also like the house that I have in the final world, but I won't say where quite yet  ;)



Chapter 34- Birthdays for Everyone!

After Willow's birthday, Nicholas and I began working with her on her toddler skills. Forest was ready to age up shortly so we let him enjoy the rest of his toddler days by getting in as much play time as he could. I started by teaching Willow how to speak. Just like Uncle Dayton, I made sure to tell my little girl about how important she was to all of us. Willow had a big future ahead of her.



Once she knew how to speak, I moved on to teaching Willow how to walk.



And finally, Willow learned how to use the potty.



Nicholas and I were able to breathe a little easier after both Willow and Forest were set with their toddler skills. But, before we knew it, it was time for Forest to age up.









Here is Forest as a child.



He gained the Family Oriented trait.



I started to help Forest with his homework so that he would be ready for his first day of school the next day when we heard a commotion going on downstairs.



Willow had been playing with her xylophone and Nicholas had been playing with her after he returned home from work.





But over the course of celebrating the kids' birthdays, Nicholas forgot his own!





After he aged up, Nicholas headed upstairs and remodeled the extra bedroom we had upstairs to suit Forest's tastes a little better.



I was on my way to go and help Nicholas when I remembered something very important as well. It was my birthday too!







Thankfully, that was it for birthdays for a few days. In the meantime, we were able to relax and just enjoy everything for now. Forest had the right idea and was just having a blast.





I took some time to play with Willow before it was time for her to grow up again.



Likewise, Nicholas took some time to play with Forest before he aged up into a teenager.



Nothing could ever replace these moments.

After everything Dayton did, I know Willow is going to be one awesome Sim. Birthday wishes all around, I love Forest's facial expressions during his age up  ;)

Willow turned out pretty cool. She actually takes her role one step further to help out one of the later generations, which you'll see in a few chapters.



Chapter 35- Days Go By

We weren't done with birthdays in this family by a long shot. Willow's birthday was right around the corner. Since that was the case, I wanted to get in some last bits of play time with my little girl before she wasn't so little anymore.



Forest also wanted to spend some time with his little sister before they were both in elementary school together, even if just for a day.







Those moments went by quickly and it was time for Willow's child birthday.









Here is my little Willow, even though she really isn't so little anymore.



She gained the Family Oriented trait, just like her brother.



Since we moved Forest's bedroom upstairs, we gave the room that he once shared with Willow a makeover to better suit Willow's tastes.



We also purchased her a chemistry set and Willow began to play with it immediately. That made me smile because she reminded me of Uncle Dayton.



I talked to Willow, now that she was older and could understand more about her role in the dynasty.



Willow promised me that she would do everything that she could to help Forest and the future family members to do whatever they could to succeed.



I was so proud of my little girl's selflessness.



The burglars, apparently, also wanted to take advantage of our good nature.





But the cops didn't want to let that happen, thankfully.



Since we were all already up for the day, we decided to celebrate Forest's birthday now.









Here is teenage Forest.



He gained the Savvy Sculptor trait.

I love Willow's colour theme and her bedroom, I'm jealous  ;) Forest is growing up so fast, he's looking very handsome.
