We had triplets… Lucia, Grace, and Fran Bow.
Fran Bow likes the xylophone.
… and Lucia loves playing with the dollhouse.
… and then Mom passed away.
Rest In Peace

My moms were now getting old.
… and while I slept, Cherubi was flirted with my mom. Ew.
Hans passed away that night, and everyone was in a bad mood for months. Because of it, the five teens had mood swings and changed their hair up.
Claire admitted that her girls were all wonderful and beautiful. It was going to be hard to chose her heiress… so she decided to choose three. Eclipsa, Jackie, and Moon would be her heiresses. She was sure they would do a good job.
Thea spent most of her time playing the guitar. It was going to be Spring soon enough.
“Watcher, when are you going to introduce my daughter Shoshanna*?” Thea looked up.
Oh. Um… never…? Sorry, Thea, but… Shoshanna isn’t very important, and now she’s left the house, so… I can’t…
“How rude!” Thea sighed, and went back to playing the guitar.
Anyway… as I was saying, before I was rudely interrupted, Thea really played the guitar for a while, and so did a few of her daughters.
Meteora seemed to enjoy being on the computer, and she did so often. Actually, everyone was on the computer at some point during the day.
Claire spent most of her time on the treadmill, for her job.
Jackie decided to try cooking for everyone that night.
She made pancakes. They weren’t that bad.
“Exactly! I make good food! Admire my creation! ADMIRE IT!” Jackie screamed.
Speaking of admiring things…
Moon, Jackie and Star all really like the easel…
Rest In Peace

*Shoshanna – The child Thea had as a result of risky woohoo when I was trying to complete her LTW. She has now left the house, and her LTW is not fulfilled.
“Ohhhh! Oh, yes! Yes, I’ll marry you!” Claire exclaimed, jumping up and down.
A Few Months later…
”You know… I can’t do this. I can’t make this commitment,” Thea frowned, before running from the arch.
Claire watched her go, looking heartbroken. If she didn’t want to marry her, then she know what to do next.
Claire quietly followed her to their room.
“If you don’t want to make a commitment, then we’re over!” Claire shouted at her.
Thea was surprised, “What?”
“You heard me! You can stay to raise the kids, but I want nothing to do with you afterwards. Got it?” Claire growled.
Thea sighed, “Got it.”
Hans and Thea flirted for a while.
“I know you’re with my daughter, but would you mind a silver fox?”
Claire wasn’t pleased, but she would deal with it later. They had a birthday to attend.
Moon and Jackie were growing up today. Everyone was excited.
“Hmm… for my birthday, I think I want a tornado!” Moon exclaimed, after blowing out her candles.
Claire smiled, “I don’t think we can do that, but we could go out later?”
“Okay!” Moon smiled, accepting that instead.
Jackie didn’t really know what she wanted, so she thought about it for a while. She could get back to her moms on what she wanted later, right?
Both the girls were beautiful, as they were expected to be. Just as pretty as their older sisters.
Thea smiled, “Claire, would you marry me?”
Star really enjoyed cooking. She reminded me of my older brother DD in that way. Ignore the poisoned apples on the counters. My dad keeps making them, and just places them on the counter afterwards. Plenty of us have fallen victim to them at some point.
Case and point… Moon a few weeks ago…
However, that’s the least of our problems. We’ve had just over 10,000 simoleons for the past few years. You’d think we’d have more, but due to constantly repairing and replacing appliances and plumbing, as well as buying things for the kids, paying for their field trips and things they need for school, we don’t have much. We haven’t had much for years, but we have enough to keep going as we have been for a few more years. At least, we hoped.
Moon really enjoyed fishing by the ocean. She fished for pretty much the rest of the day.
Jackie really liked to paint, and so did some of the other girls.
Meteora really liked using the telescope. Unfortunately, her grandfather was causing trouble.
Hans fought with Meteora, and beat her in a fight, and he also…
I… have no words for this…
This is Moon and Jackie. Moon has my father Hans’ hair and Thea’s eyes, while Jackie has his eyes, and Thea’s hair. They’re opposites in looks, you could say.
Star became a teen a few months later, and a few years after that, Eclipsa and Meteora joined her in teen hood.
My wonderful girls. Moon and Jackie were still kids, but I was sure they were going to be as beautiful as their older sisters.
Star spent a lot of time painting, and so did Jackie.
It was around this time that Thea spent a lot of time on the computer.
While, I spent time on the treadmill.
Hello. It’s me again. Thea. It’s been a while, huh? Let’s see…
Well, I’ve grown up again, and actually… Claire and I are together.
She confessed her feelings to me a few years ago, and I reciprocated those feelings.
We have a daughter named Star now. She has elf-ears like me, but everything else is all Claire.
We also had two other daughters when Star was a toddler. Their names are Meteora and Eclipsa. They’re both very beautiful girls, and also blind like me. They’re also quite different from each other. They’re both evil girls, but while Meteora is a genius and a coward, Eclipsa is over-emotional and clumsy.
We also have two other little girls, Moon and Jackie, but I’ll introduce them later.
Claire was defeated. She was not going to leave the house, unfortunately. Her dad wanted her to be his heir, and being heir meant dealing with all the ghosts… sure, they were the ghosts of her grandparents, but still… they were ghosts nonetheless, and because she was a coward, she fainted at the sight of them.
Staying DID have its perks, though… she could stay at home with Thea and also her dad, and when she finally decided to have kids, they could take care of her kid while she was at work.
She could also easily access all of her father’s money, and it, and her childhood home, was hers… once he passed, of course. For now, though… she didn’t have much.
She passed time by looking at the stars through the telescope, or going to the gym with Thea. Having a “girls day out”, you could say.
It was worth it, really. Claire was in the criminal career, while Thea was in the military career. It was good for them to go out and stay fit, going to the gym. Plus, of course, using the telescope helped too.
So, she continued to go to the gym with Thea. It was a breath of relief, honestly. She could lose herself in the repetitive motions of listening to music and running on the treadmill. Getting more fit. Being more than ready to fight other people… and help her with her job. Plus, she could get money if she could find stars, which was important, as her family wasn’t exactly rich.
Being from her dad, a man who slept around, she knew she wanted to be a loyal woman. Loyal to whoever her husband or wife was going to be. Claire wasn’t picky. She just wanted her dad off her back about giving him grandkids. It didn’t take long for her to realize that she’d already met the one she wanted.
The only issue, was that she wasn’t on good terms with them at the moment. She didn’t even know what type of person they liked. Or… perhaps they liked the occult, considering their heritage. Either way, she’d try her best to seem willing and okay with being with them. The difficult part was asking.
She knew it was going to be awkward. They grew up together, after all. She just hoped Thea felt the same way.
MoMo really likes the telescope. He uses it constantly. I think he’s going to be an astronaut when he’s older. I hope he conquers the stars!
Claire and LuLu really like each other’s company. They love playing tag together, and go on till late at night, so I have to pretty much force them to go to bed.
I grew up a few days after I managed to get a promotion. It was a relief, getting a midlife crisis and also the watcher allowing me to pretty much shave my head. Of course, I kept my beard.
I liked my new haircut a lot. I got a grey and black tiger striped shirt to go with it, keeping my rebel spike collar, as well. I thought I looked pretty handsome, and the watcher agreed.
DD became a young adult a few months later, and he decided he’d be a chef.
“I really think this is the right path for me, Dad. My passions lie in painting and playing the guitar, but you know I don’t mind cooking while you’re away at work. I don’t mind cooking for a living, that’s what I’ve been doing since I turned 13, isn’t it?” DD asked me one day, deciding to confront me head on.
I sighed, “DD, it’s not that. Cooking can cause fire if you get distracted, like your sister LaLa does sometimes. I know you won’t get distracted, just… be careful, alright, son?”
“Okay, Dad. I get it. I’ll be careful. I promise,” DD smiled and went back to playing the guitar.
I was worried about the kid. Sure, he was a young adult now, at 21, but he was still my child. He was my oldest. I really hoped he’d turn out alright.
The rest of my children grew up fast after that.
Thea… And even if she wasn’t biologically related, I watched her grow up since she was just a baby, so that made me believe she was as much as my child as the rest of them… right?
A lot of fighting happened. I fought with Thea, and actually set her on fire once. The watcher was HORRIFIED and chastised me in her mind, because of it.
MoMo also broke up with her not long after he grew up. They didn’t seem to see eye-to-eye anymore. I ended up fighting with CoCo once, too. My relationship with my kids was falling.
LuLu became a teen, and as LuLu did, so did Claire.
The last teenagers, I realized with shock one day. After those two became young adults, there would be no more kids in the house for a while.
At least… that’s what I had thought…
