2.4 – TV Troubles and Elder Romances

~Hans’ P.O.V.~

DD took up painting, when he became a teen. It was interesting, having my oldest child’s paintings on our walls, but it made him happy. When I worked late nights, DD took up the cooking. He usually had left over dinner for me in the fridge, and stayed up late waiting for me, while his siblings were all asleep. He was a wonderful kid, and extremely helpful. I knew I could count on him to keep things afloat while I was away.

When I got home a few nights ago, TT was in a T-shirt and underwear, browsing the web. I wasn’t sure why, but she informed me it was for a school project, so I let her be. If it was for a school project, I didn’t mind. I hope she got an A.

I had somehow fallen for a much older woman, named Ayesha Ansari. I know she’ll probably pass away soon, but I am going to kiss her at least. I spent a lot of time over the next few months with her, and I was very upset when she passed away.

In other news, DD started playing the guitar, and learning how to. I hoped he’d do well. He wanted to be a painter, guitar player, AND a chef once he was a young adult. I really hoped he’d achieve his dreams.

I decided to send TT, MoMo, and LaLa away to Smuggleworth’s Prep School. I’m sure they’d do well. Not a lot happened when they were away, or before they left. However, MoMo and LaLa did grow up before they left.

I did notice my sister Elsa skating, when I went to the park to go look for… ahem… victims for my LTW, which is Zombie Maker, by the way.

This is the first person I turned into a zombie. The watcher didn’t care to film the rest, so ignore that.

I ended up going to my sibling’s house to go fix their TV. These two are my nieces, and while I can’t recall their names, they obviously are both girls and have my mother’s hair.

While I was there, though, I found out Anna was expecting and listened, while Alana was freaking out about their broken TV.

I fixed their TV, before I was forced to leave, which was fine with me. A few of my kids are growing up tomorrow.

1.9 – The Passing of Time

There was an odd ghost appearance last night. We believe it was Elbert, but we didn’t get to talk. All he really did was eat some Mac and cheese.

The children and I all aged up today. I decided that Hans was going to be my heir.

“You know, you’re going to be the heir. You’re going to stay here, get a wife, and then have kiddos. Got it?” I looked at him.

Hans made a face, and looked at his waffles, “I don’t want a romance life, Ma. No offense, but you’d probably be better choosing Eric.”

“Sweetheart, we both know Eric doesn’t like kids now,” I pointed out.

Hans groaned, “Why me? Why can’t it be one of my siblings?”

“Because you need something to have as your legacy. You know this. You can’t just make potions all day long, and don’t think I hadn’t noticed.”

Once Hans became a young adult, he decided he was going to be a Master Potion Maker, and he got an alchemy station.

I was worried about him, but I knew I didn’t have much time left.

~Hans’ P.O.V.~

I was at work when it happened. Mom was alone in the house, and I felt horrible about it. Seeing her grave, after coming home, I decided that I WAS going to honor my mom’s wishes. I would find a girl and have plenty of children with her. I’m sure 8 would suffice.

Rest in Peace

1.8 – Prom

I was so proud of my kids. They were going to prom! They all had unique outfits, and Hans looked a bit like a pirate, but it was wonderful! I was excited to find out how it went!

It turns out that Eric’s prom experience was uneventful, and that the only thing that happened for him, was his crush avoiding him. He wasn’t pleased to tell me that Hans won Prom King, and when I asked why, Eric explained that Hans had the votes rigged. I wasn’t pleased at all to hear that.

Hans got in a fight with three students, one for drenching his friend in punch. I‘m glad he defended his friend, but not for fighting. He also ended up being romantic interests with a girl named Candy Ashleydale.

Alana, however, despite breaking the backdrop while chasing her crush, getting ignored and rejected by her crush, and getting in a fight with another student, she ended up being Prom Queen. She was very pleased, but upset that she didn’t have a romantic interest.

Aurora ended up becoming romantic interests with a boy named Jasper, and getting rejected by her crush.

Elsa ended up becoming romantic interests with this boy named Davy Linnell, and her crush got away while she had chased them.

Anna got a drink thrown to her face, got challenged to a fight and won, and then became romantic interests with this boy named Sam Sekemoto.

1.7 – The End of An Era

While Elsa took up painting, the other kids took up other hobbies. Eric ended up taking up chess, Anna took up guitar, Alana was mostly doing who-knows-what on the computer, and I didn’t know what Hans was up to. Since he became a teen, he was mostly singing to himself a lot. He seemed more pleased with himself and kind of egotistic. Aurora was just her sleepy self.

Hans was gifted a motorcycle for his birthday. We weren’t sure where he got it from, but he said it was from the watcher, said that she believed it would fit him. We didn’t get it or understand why he was saying that he could hear our watcher, but we decided to just believe him. Hopefully he’s telling the truth.

Today was actually a very special day. Today, me and Elbert were getting older.

As I started my midlife crisis, I decided to get a hair cut, and…

I didn’t want to be an older woman with an old man as my husband. I didn’t want to see what I will be when I’m older.

The kids must have heard, because they were all upset… and Anna and Eric… well…

Hans ended up misbehaving too, taking his anger out on Elsa.

The doctors said it was the heartbreak that killed him. He died not long after I left the room.

Rest In Peace

1.6 – Growing Up Fast

The tots were now kids. Alana was a teenager. It’s been busy. I really enjoyed it once the kids were going to school. Alana was getting straight A’s, as I knew she would, some of them where getting B’s, and unfortunately one of them was in the C’s. I was relieved when Alana came out to us as straight. However, there were other problems for us to deal with, as I overheard one day while I was in the kitchen.

“How dare you try to mess with the sink?!” Elbert shouted at Hans, late one night.

Hans looked upset that he was caught, but didn’t say anything.

“Why, I have half a mind to… to… augh!” Elbert shouted and stormed to our bedroom, slamming the door behind him, making me jump.

We had other problems that night. It was a full moon. I didn’t understand what was happening to Anna and Eric, but it was terrifying. Not knowing what to do, we locked them both in their room.

Anna and Eric had a headache the morning after. Neither of them remembered what happened the night before, but the rest of us definitely did. I decided to let them stay home from school. They seemed quite pleased with that. I didn’t mind. It let me spend more time with them. The next day, they did go back to school, however.

It was nice, really. The house was quiet, and I was alone. Nobody else was there. I felt good about this, and waited quietly for the kids to return, as well as Elbert, while I watched TV.

Eric, Anna, and Elsa decided to stay at school for a bit longer to finish their work. I didn’t mind at all, honestly. As long as they did their work somehow. They ended up coming home a bit late that night, and Elsa spent the Saturday painting.

I was thrilled! Painting was a good way to get simoleons. Hopefully we could rack them up fast. We are dirt poor, I’ll shamefully admit. It’s the new renovation of our house. We’re trying to make a kid’s room, so that they won’t have to sleep in our bedroom. However, the walls and tiling the walls cost a lot of money. We could only afford two beds for the kids.

We’re in a rough spot at the moment, because of it, but I hope things will look up for us soon. There’s going to be a prom soon, and all the kids are going to go, as the five are going to become teens the night before it. I’m excited to help the girls pick out their outfits! I hope they’ll like what I choose.

1.5 – Tots Galore!

I sighed, and watched the toddlers crawl into the living room. There were so many of them! Five, in fact… I frowned, Well… no more kids. That’s for sure. I thought to myself. We decided to name them Hans, Elsa, Anna, Eric, and Aurora. It was going to be quite difficult to tell the boys apart, and Elsa and Aurora. Eric and Hans looked pretty much identical, and so did Elsa and Aurora. Anna had her dad’s skin color, so we could easily tell her apart from the other two girls. Aurora had a weird skin tone, but it was different than Elsa’s.

Anna looked really happy with her lochness monster toy. She called it Nessy and took it everywhere she crawled.

Something was a little off about the five tots, though. Elsa has wings, Aurora had an odd skin color, Anna and Eric had glowing eyes, and they howled at times when they were on the floor. Especially at night. They woke up the other kids with their howling. It was so weird. Maybe something to do with the fact that they were born on the full moon? I don’t know. Hans was the only one without any odd qualities, although his toys did seem to disappear in mid-air from time to time…

Aurora had my eye and hair color, making her unique from her siblings. The only one with my eye color. Anna and Elsa had my hair color, but they had their daddy’s eye color. The boys had both their dad’s eye and hair color.

It was definitely difficult, trying to get them to walk, talk, and learn to use the potty. We ended up not making them, and just forgetting about it.

It was the weirdest thing, though. As the months passed by, it was getting close to their birthdays. Alana seemed to be talking to, and hugging, midair. It was strange. The five ended up getting this weird dolls in the mail, like Alana did when she was born. Their glowing antenna-circle-ball-thing freaked me out, but it kept the kids happy, so I didn’t get rid of them, even if I wanted to. Not that it mattered that much, anyway. It was getting close to all the kiddos birthdays though. Alana was going to be a teenager! Oh god…

1.4 – Baby!

~Rose Ann’s P.O.V.~

“So… I have something to tell you!” I smiled at Elbert, “We’re going to need lots of little red shoes soon!”

Elbert took a deep breath for a moment.

“Well, that’s just a load of garbage!” He shouted at me.

“Hey!” I exclaimed, starting to get angry, “It is not garbage! You are going to be a good father, and you will not use that tone in front of the children!”

It didn’t really do much. We fought a lot for the rest of the months.

Oh, god… how are we going to handle this?!

Hahaha! I don’t know, Rose Ann, but it’s exhausting.
All five were born on a full moon. 😉
I believe they’re all Leos or Cancers as they were born in the Summer. Will get back to y’all on that.
Alana was born on a waining crescent, and she is a Pisces.
