Re: The Moons of Jupiter: An Immortal Dynasty (Chapter 37: Little Lysithea)
« Reply #350 on: June 11, 2011, 10:16:01 AM »
After a lovely childhood, it was time for my darling daughter to age up. It was also Jamie’s adult birthday.
The two of them blew out their candles together.


Lysithea aged up to be a beautiful young lady. With her wonderful personality, I knew she’d have no problem achieving her wish of having twenty friends.



Although she was now a teen, she still had time for her mother. She often had a chat with me after school about how everything was going for her.
I wasn’t surprised when she asked me if she could have a party at our house. When I said yes, she started squealing with happiness. I smiled at her joy – she certainly was a sweet girl.


The night of the party, Lysi was busy in the kitchen. She loved to cook, and insisted on catering for the whole party.


When she said “the whole party” I started to worry. I thought it was going to be more of a small get together with her classmates.
I waited anxiously to see just how many people were turning up. One boy. Two boys. Three boys. Four boys. Five boys. Six teenage boys!
Now I was worrying. Not because I there were too many people in the house, but because there were six teenage boys in the house that couldn’t take their eyes off my daughter!



Despite how protective I was feeling, I let my girl enjoy her night. Her Uncle Arche and Aunty Marcie were out there watching them all anyway.
I started to close the curtains of my bedroom that overlooked the party, when something caught my eye.
My little girl was with a boy, in the corner of the outdoor area. I squinted my eyes trying to get a closer look.
They weren’t dancing. They weren’t talking. They weren’t hugging.


I couldn’t see the boy properly; I couldn’t see which boy it was. But I could tell what was going on. They were kissing!
I gasped out loud. How did this happen – how did time fly by so fast that my little girl was already old enough to date?

Jamie walked into the room, his face expressing concern at my gasp. He asked what wrong, and I blurted it out. All he did was laugh.
I asked him how he could laugh at our daughter out kissing boys. He pulled me into an embrace. “Leda, do you remember when we were in high school?” he asked.
“Of course,” I replied.
“And…?” he continued “What did you spend your high school years doing?”
I smiled to myself, realising where this was heading. “Kissing you, of course”.
Jamie smiled back at me. “She’s growing up,” he said. “She’s not our baby any more, but a young lady. We’ve got to give her the freedom that she deserves. We need to stop protecting her, so that she can learn to protect herself.”

The conversation put my mind to rest. Jamie was right, of course. Lysi wasn’t a child anymore. She was a young lady, ready to experience life for the first time. As my mother had done for me, I needed to take a step back and let my daughter live the way she pleased. After all, it was her life to live.

I am so happy for Lysi, personally. She is so kind, I love that picture of her with the halo above her head.

Lysi truly deserves a true love! Leda, please let your daughter love already.

Well done Jamie, and awesome job, Alex. :)

I'm so curious to find out which boy caught Lysi's eye! There's definitely some nice genetics in that pond of boys!

Jamie's a great father! I wish my dad would've been more like him when I was Lysi's age. He made it his mission to scare all the boys I brought home away - eventually I just stopped bringing them home :P Luckily Lysi will have it a little easier!

Hrm. There's a couple that didn't strike my fancy, but I'm not sure I have a favorite among those pictures.

Should it surprise me that three of them have the same haircut? Then again, looking around my daughter's school, there seem to be two or three standard-issue haircuts for boys...

Thanks everyone. Yeah, I found it funny that half of them had the same haircut as each other. Since saving some hair colours into my folder, I've started getting different hair colours to the defaults, which I'm liking.
And to be honest, it was a hard choice to pick one of the boys - like Phyre said, quite a few of them were good looking (which I was surprised at).

Over the coming days, Lysi came to me and admitted she was going steady with a boy from school. His name was Louie Arias.

However, her relationship with Louie started to become a bad influence on her school life – instead of studying, she’d visit him at the parks. I’d even heard from the teachers that she skipped school a few times!




When she arrived home from one of these outings, I decided enough was enough. I needed to talk to her. Yes, she was young and I needed to let her live and love, but school was important. If she didn’t do well in school, she’d have trouble for the rest of her life.

As I went out to have a chat with her, I came across a startling scene. Lysi, Mum and Jamie were standing on the porch crying. My eyes started welling up with tears when I realised why. Death had come for my father, James.


Unlike the other times Death had come to claim a family member, Dad was left with time to say some final farewells.
He let us know that he’d lived a better life than anyone could imagine; that he was surrounded by family that he loved, and worked a job he enjoyed and he’d married the girl of his dreams. He told us that when times got hard, all we need do is look up to the sky, and he’d be there watching over us all.
With that, he disappeared.

Although it was a horrible moment, our family was left touched. We wiped our tears away and smiled in memory of all the great times we’d shared with him.

We placed his grave beside his mother Agnes’. There he would rest with Agnes, Cyllene and Thornton.

Oh, Lysi's going to be in trouble if she puts smooches in front of her studies! Louie is pretty cute facially, but he looks so thin, maybe he'll grow out of it.

RIP James

I love Lysi's teen outfit, especially her re colored martial arts robes, very nifty.

Rest in peace James. There aren't many with the courage (or opportunity) to deliver their own eulogy.

And yay for Lysi and Louie (I was hoping it'd be Troy; but Louie is a fine choice too). Hopefully she won't totally abandon her schoolwork!

The day arrived for my little Lysi to grow up into a young adult. Having so many friends, she insisted on having a party. Even though she had a boyfriend, all the boys still gawked at her. I secretly wished that she had picked one of the other boys – one that would encourage her to do well and school and support her through life. But in the end, that was her choice. I just had to grin and bear it.

She blew out her candles and aged into a fine young woman.




She decided that she wanted to get a job in the Culinary Arts, seeing as her hobby was cooking. Mum suggested she apply at the Bistro where Dad used to work, as they had a good reputation.
Before she left for the Bistro, she sent off some money to her favourite charity – The Ocean. She was still a very kind-hearted girl.



As she was now a young adult, she needed to wait for Louie to grow up before things with them got back to the romantic-side of things. She often called him up and invited him over, however, he didn’t seem interested.
He came over some of the times Lysi invited him, and Lysi put in as much effort as she could to keep him to stay around.


However, Louie either kept leaving and telling her she was boring, or insulted her. I was beginning to hate this boy – Lysi was putting in so much effort for him, but he was rejecting her as though she was just an object to him.
Every time he left the house, Lysi would be left in tears, asking herself what she did wrong.


I always pulled her into a comforting hug, telling her that she may be better off without him. However, she kept on insisting that if she was just a better girlfriend, he’d love her more. I wished there was a way to make her see that she was doing everything a loving girlfriend would – calling him, supporting him, loving him. It was Louie that was being hateful and neglecting.
But I just couldn’t make her see. I looked up to the sky and asked Dad for guidance. Anything to help my daughter through this rough patch in life.

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Authors note: All that stuff with Louie actually did happen - he was so horrible. He rejected all her requests to come over, and when he finally did come over one or two times, he said it was the most boring time he's had. He also scared her, insulted her and even tried to fight her!
And here I thought I was making a good choice.

Lysi is such a cutie, and Louie is a bad guy to leave such a girl unnoticed. I hope he doesn't leave her at altar, though. :-\

I like the gnomes in background in the charity photo. I also love the fact that she's so kind.

Oh, and about the last update, I meant to comment, my computer shut down. Ugh. Anyways, it was so sad I nearly cried *sniff* RIP James. :'(

She is rather beautiful. I was surprised that after four generations I got such a pretty sim. She is also very beautiful on the inside too, which makes her really lovable to me too.
I just couldn't believe how horrible Louie turned out, and how much he neglected Lysi.

He must be mean-spirited or evil or both!  I hope Lysi finds her strength and kicks him to the curb - she can do much better!

I've been lurking in the background catching up on stories, so belated congrats on passing your previous dynasty mark.  Your story is an absolutely amazing blend of romance, mystery, even some horror thrown in for good measure...the evil voice is way scary!

I love Lysi she is very pretty! She should go find someone else who is better for her!
The next time you look into the mirror, just look at the way the ears rest next to the head; look at the way the hairline grows;
 think of all the little bones in your wrist. It is a miracle. And the dance is a celebration of that miracle. *Martha Graham*

I wandered into the kitchen. Today was my birthday. Today I would become the third immortal.

As Arche and I blew out our candles, Mum and Grandma Callisto clapped wildly. We all knew that today would bring us all one step closer to our goal. One step closer to saving our family.
It would also bring me one step closer to revealing what had happened to me in the family graveyard; an incident which I had never spoken of to anyone.


Being in the line of immortals did have its perks – because I had immortal blood, my hair wouldn’t grey. Unfortunately for Arche, his did.




Arche let me know that he’d finished crafting my museum pieces. He hugged me, wishing me good luck. I smiled at him, starting to feel a little nervous.


I walked to the kitchen, and sat at the table with my mother and grandmother. They both smiled at me, with their forks in their hands. They didn’t need to talk; their smiles asked the question – “Are you ready?”


As I started to eat the ambrosia, I started feeling odd.
My body felt as light as a feather, and in my mind I felt wiser. I felt stronger, like the threads of time had begun to weave more life into me.


I took the last bite, and stood up. I felt free; unbound by the restrictions of life. The air was sweeter, the colours were brighter. I was completely free; I was immortal.
