Chapter 50: Two For The Price Of One?



Oh Jasmine! You've completed your second aspiration! You clever girl!
Jasmine: Thanks watcher.





Dude: Hmm... thinking positive thoughts... this IS tasty.
Talking to yourself? First sign of madness you know.
Dude: Trying to psych myself up to actually eating this.
Is it that bad?
Dude: It's the fishy chunks..






Dude: How was your day darling?
Reagan: Better now you're home.






Dude: Hmm I love you.






Reagan: And I, you.






Dude: How's that?
Reagan: Ooo, just lovely!






Blaize: Oh no way! If you're going to write romance, you're on your own.
Mac: Lol, you're so squeamish.
Blaize: Uh Huh, just not writing romance with my sister... Eww.






Where you going?
Blaize: Just for some fresh air and to check out those lights.
Nice! ... Wait! What?







Blaize. Wait! Don't look at those lights... BLAIZE.
Blaize: But they're so prreetttyyy.... I can't help it.....






WHAT? OMG! NO.







Blaize... I... you... NO.







<Frantically> NO... Stop. Arghhh..








Please, no! Don't take both my boys....<sob>




Blaize: Welp, this is different. Bye watcher.
Oh Blaize hunney...omg.




<Stunned and terrible silence>






Thomas: What on earth was all the noise watcher?
You don't want to know. Make me one of those would you? Make it a double.






Some time later...
Oh thank heavens.




Blaize: OUCH!
<cringe> Ohh, eek!





Blaize: Well... sheesh!






<Gulp>
Dude: Woah! Steady! Help!






Dude: Ow..ooo. Dam it. I'm getting too old for this.






Oh thank goodness you're both back.
Dude: <slightly stunned> Both?
Yeah... both you and Blaize were taken...
Dude: Cripes.






Blaize: Oh dad!
Dude: Son...










Mac: You ok Blaize? Where did you get to?
Blaize: Umm... yeah, I'm fine. Oh... nowhere special.

Edge of my seat reading!!  I wonder if they thought Blaize was a human because of his disguise?  Surprise! lol  Too many good things to say about this story but I MUST say that house of yours is AMAZING!  It is so beautiful and just absolutely perfect.  I hope it will go to the gallery once you've completed the dynasty.
What?  Grannies can't play games?

Ok, I finally caught up. Jasmine and Blaize visiting Sixam together was so sweet. I love their bonding moments. I can't believe both Dude and Blaize got abducted. Does this mean they're both pregnant? Can male aliens even get pregnant? Looking forward to your next post  :D

How shocking that both Winston & Blaize got abducted at the same time!
I can only imagine how you felt, Playalot, as you watched them being beamed up simultaneously.
Those Hollingsworth pheromones be some dangerous bizness!  :o

What a great way to end the chapter! Terrific cliff hanger!! Fingers crossed you don't have two pregnant men in the household.. Beautiful updates with the siblings, how they all love each other and look out for each other is heartwarming. Good Luck Play!

Two... AT A TIME!?!?!  Seriously?!  I still can't get my scientist guy abducted... and you get two XD Wow, just wow.  Wonderful updates, as usual, though Play.  Poor Blaise, getting yelled at on his birthday!  I'm with Dude with the wanting to punch someone!  Loved watching Blaize and Jasmine in Sixam.  So cool!

Thanks for all your comments! lol... Yeah, both my boys at once. I was really freaked out actually as Dude's age bar was all bubbly and he'd had his second warning so he was just about to start making ambrosia when he was abducted. I kept thinking that if he dies when he gets beamed down I was going to throw a major hissy-fit! Anyhoo.... not to kill the suspense but he didn't die and so made and ate his second plate of ambrosia just after he was returned! Whew! (In the story I had Dude eating his ambrosia before the abduction... better drama!  ;) )
I didn't even know that sims could be abducted at the same time from the same lot. Crazy!  ???

@Joria , if you do want the house I'm more than happy to put it on the gallery. It's still half empty and not complete as at the moment there are hallways leading to nothing to allow for further expansion! It has been built with the Mansion Baron aspiration in mind and at the moment this aspiration completes just by selecting it as I use this aspiration for all the sims for point farming. (The columns are hidden inside the walls.) So let me know if you would like it as it is now.... or rather wait until it is finally completed.  :)

Chapter 51: Too Soon


Jasmine: Morning watcher.
Morning.
Jasmine: I thought I'd play you a song I wrote a little while ago...
It's lovely.
Jasmine: Thanks.






Dude: So, I feel fine. I guess they just wanted to run me through some diagnostic tests or whatever.
Reagan: Well, I'm pleased that you're fine, of course, but I can't help wishing that they would just ask instead of whipping you away like that. It's so worrying.
Dude: Yeah, I don't think I'll ever get used to it, that's for sure.






Dude: Ah well, I guess it's because I have so many alien friends, not to mention Blaize and Jasmine of course, so I suppose this is just how it's always going to be.
Reagan: Oh love, trust you to look on the bright side of it all.






Dude: Well, time for work. You know I love you don't you.
Reagan: I do. I love you too. Have a lovely day at work. You're thinking of taking a vacation day aren't you? I know that twinkle in your eye.
Dude: I am. It would be nice to go snuggle up in bed with my lovely wife for a while...
Reagan: We've got the weekend to do that! Lol, go!
Dude: Going! <Grin>







Some time later that same evening...

Jasmine: You're getting so much better! That's sounding really fantastic.







Writing again?
Blaize: Hmm.
Mac: Yeah, I need three best sellers pronto. My editors being a bit pushy.






Dude: So, how've you been?
Zest: Ok. I guess. It's a bit strange visiting and seeing the kids growing up so fast!
Tell me about it. I can hardly believe that Blaize is a young man now.
Zest: Seems like yesterday that we were changing his diapers.
Dude: Lol, don't tell him that!







Oh! Best seller?
Mac: *sigh* No, unfortunately. I seem to have hit writers block. The best I'm writing at the moment are deemed as excellent.
It'll happen. Don't worry. Maybe take a break for a while eh?








Oh no.
Reagan: I think I don't feel very well...







Winston: Oh my love!






MacKenzie: Mum...Oh no! Don't leave me!






Reagan: I love you my dear with all my heart, look after your father.
Winston: I love you Reagan...
Reagan: <Faintly> And I you....







Grim: I'm sorry Winston, it's definitely time.





Good bye sweet Reagan, you will be missed and thank you for everything you've done for this dynasty. You will live on, you know, through Mackenzie and all her descendants.













Blaize: Reagan's gone hasn't she watcher?
Yes Blaize. How did you know?
Blaize: I felt it...like a knife in my heart.






Blaize: I know Reagan wasn't my real mum, but she was, you know watcher?
I know.






Mac: I can't talk about it. I'm writing it out...
I'm here if you need me.
Mac: Mum's last painting is there. I asked her to paint me something with butterflies for my bedroom <sob>. I can't look at it now.
You will be able to soon and then each time you look at it you will remember all the good times and it will make you smile a little. Trust me.

Either way, thank you.  It's a gorgeous house so I'd love to have it.  Can't use it in my dynasty of course but I can see where it could be a lot of fun to play in it.

lol, quite right, too busy playing to edit and proof read! :)


Yeah, it felt way too soon, but, considering they met each other in the adult years I guess it's only to be expected. Poor Winston. *Sigh*

Chapter 52: Let's Go Out


Mac: I don't know dad, I just think I'm too sad to do this...
Dude: Let's give it a go hun. You never know, it might just take your mind of things for a while.







Why don't you try it on? Might look nice.





There ya go. How does that feel?
Mackenzie: Ok...it's a bit low in the top for me ... and a bit too girly. Nice though.





Jasmine: What do you think watcher?
Suits you! Makes you look very grown up, maybe a bit too grown up.






Dude: Pfft, don't think it's 'me' somehow!






Blaize: So, you're Mercedes, right?
Mercedes: Yes. You must be Blaize. Nice to meet you. I like your disguise, very handsome!






Jasmine: Oooo, so exciting! I think I'm falling in love with shopping!






Dude: Well, thanks again for all your errr... assisting. It certainly was good to see my girls smiling.
Shop Assistant: You're very welcome. It must be very difficult to not have your mum around when you're a teenage girl.
Dude: I think it's pretty hard on all of us, but yes, the girls seem to be taking the loss of my wife the hardest.





Dude: Whew! We were in there for hours!
Mac: I kinda enjoyed that. Thanks dad.
Jasmine: That was great! I officially have a new hobby now.
Bliaze: <Thinking to himself> Wow Micah sure looks hot these days.






Jasmine: Where's Blaize?
Mac: He got caught up talking to Micah.






Jasmine: OooO Do you think he's falling in lOOooove?
Mac: Eww, probably.

Chapter 53: Party!


Mackenzie: Thanks Taylor, for letting me throw my house party here.
Taylor: No worries, it'll be a blast!






Jasmine: Hi Micah. Cute hat!
Micah: Thanks!






Umm Sienna... what are you doing?
Sienna: The lights....so pretty...






Party crashers! <Blows a raspberry at UFO>






Thomas: Thanks for coming Alex.
Alex: Wouldn't miss it, nice to be one of the 'oldies' for a change, no responsibilities to rush home for.






Dude: You hungry Beatrix?
Bea: Yeah... kind of. What are you cooking?
Dude: Black and White cake.
Yes! My favourite! I'm so glad it's not taco casserole. Eww.






Alfonso: Blaize! Come and try the cake, leave the cleaning man... the cake's going fast!






Herman: Hmm, this really is delicious.
Dude: Thanks.
Tierra: Nice house Taylor.
Declan: Oh, I'm Declan, Taylors twin brother. Everyone get's us mixed up.






Mac: Well, you guys make getting a gold medal easy! All that's left to do it just enjoy ourselves 'till it's home time.
Tierra: Congrats Mac!
Mac: Thanks.






And so... Winston got his story telling vibes on, Blaize got a little flirty chatting to Micah (MMmmmmmm) and everyone danced the night away.







Oh, and party girl Mackenzie met Rusty Louis who also had a penchant for unbelievable yet true stories.





Mac: Thanks for helping me with my homework Rusty.
Rusty: You're very welcome Mac. I'm amazed I haven't forgotten everything I learnt from high school.
Dude: Been a while has it?
Rusty: Since high school? Yeah, just a bit.
Dude: Hmm.






Mac: Did you enjoy the party Herman?
Herman: Sure did. It's all pretty tidy through there too.
Rusty: Cool! Well, night everyone.
Mac: Night Rusty, thanks for coming.
Herman: Home time eh?
Dude: Yep.






Micah: Night Blaize.
Blaize: Ok, it's safe to go out.
Micah: Lol, whatever do you mean?
Blaize: No UFO's... you're good to go! Actually, maybe I better walk you home....Just in case.

Chapter 54: Bad Timing


Seems like yesterday we were all sitting out here...





...watching the kids on the jungle gyms.
Dude: Yeah. It all goes so quickly doesn't it.
Where's Blaize?
Dude: Inside with Micah.
Ooo, cool. I need to go watch.
Dude: That's disturbing.






Blaize: There's been something that I've wanted to say for some time now Micah.
Micah: I really like you too Blaize.
Blaize: Oh! you do?
Micah: Hm hmm.





Blaize: Well, I was wondering, then, would you...





Blaize:...be my girl?




Micah: Totally!










Micah: Are you sure this is safe Blaize?
Blaize: Trust me, I'm at home in space.






Blaize: Whatcha waiting for?












Mackenzie: Huh? That's pretty strange... what kinda space trip is Blaize having?
Arghh... Err... Turn that off Mackenzie Hollingsworth! You have homework to do young lady.
Mac: Geez, alrighty, already.






Jasmine: Told you you'd get caught.
Mac: Darn watcher's always watching when we don't want her too....






Hmm, smells good!
Thomas: Mac and cheese.





That's a lot of pepper there.
Thomas: You learnt to cook of a sudden then?
Oh! No... I just thought that perhaps...
Thomas: Well, tell you what, when you can cook, you can criticize. K?
K then grumpy.
Thomas: I heard that.






Blaize: You want to hang around, listen to music or something?
Micah: Sure! I think I need to calm down after that. Whew! <fans herself>






Hey! Where you off to? Your girl's inside.
Blaize: Umm... not sure, just got to check out ....
Together: These lights.
Right. *sigh*







Talk about a moth to a flame...(Hums to herself "aint no river wide enough, aint no mountain high enough....to keep me from getting to you babe...")






Umm... you gonna say bye to Micah?
Blaize: Err... be right back babe...







Well, that's bad timing.
Micah: Where did Blaize get to watcher?
Oh.. he just had some business to attend to, won't be long. Make yourself at home my dear. You know, take off the spacesuit etc. Or not.

Blaize: Sorry, 'bout that.
Micah: It's fine. These things happen.






Blaize: Where were we?






Blaize: I've somewhere else to show you...?






Blaize: Come on... this one'll have you seeing stars!
Micah: *giggle*







Dude: Least you don't have the watcher nagging you every time you want to work out.
Zest: Very true my friend, very true.






I can not believe it's your birthday already Jasmine! Happy birthday love!






Oh...how lovely, celebrating to the sound of backs going out in stereo! Charming!





Dude: Happy birthday my darling. I'm so proud of you.
Jasmine: Thanks dad.

Gosh your household gets abducted too often! You must be crossing all your fingers that no one comes back pregnant (unless you have a full household..then it's ok!) So sad to see Reagan go, very sad and amazing screenshots to go with it.
