4.41 Meet The Parents

**Warning: Language, long**

Ok, so I normally do my authors note at the end, but it would feel like I was interrupting something. A little disclaimer, I know nothing about chemistry and just googled 'corrosive chemicals' - you'll know what bit I'm on about. Enjoy!

  "I told him." Elise fumed. "I told him he liked her, but rather than admit that he has to be a baby and turn it into a fight."
  "Chill. We called it." Arlandria handed Elise the lit cigarette, blowing the smoke from her lungs long and slow. "What's it to you anyhow?" She asked, watching the smoke dance away on the light evening breeze.
  "Well she's going to be round my house all the time now, isn't she? I can handle Autumn, you just need to shout loud enough and Kaity will come and ground him... But Trisha?" Elise took a long drag on the cigarette before passing it back to her friend.
  "Yeah, she's something else." Arlandria yawned, wiping a stray flake of ash from her top.
  "Entirely." Elise agreed. The girls sat in silence for a minute while they passed the cigarette back and forth, before Arlandria finished it and flicked the butt into the bushes nearby. "Did Josh ask you to prom?" Elise broke the silence.
  "Yeah. Thanks for setting that up. Do you think he'll put out?" Arlandria grinned.
  "Ew!" Elise made a face. "I don't wanna know. 'Sides, we're fourteen..." She trailed off, not really knowing how to finish that sentance.
  "So what? Age is just a number, when you're ready, you're ready. That's what Mrs. Peterson said in sex ed."
  "Yeah, but I think she meant so we didn't feel like we had to have sex just because we'd turned sixteen." Elise pointed out, staring at the ground infront of her. Arlandria kept quiet, sensing her friend was a little uneasy talking about this subject.
  "We should probably go home." She mused. "I wonder if Trisha will be at yours making kissy face with Tummy." She giggled.
  "I doubt it." Elise's eyes suddenly lit up. "Oh! I bet he's keeping it a secret! I can't wait to tell Kaity." She burst out laughing. "When the twins got boyfriends, she organised this whole 'meet the family' thing where all the cousins and aunts and uncles and grandparents and great grandparents came over."
  "Please invite me!" Arlandria cackled, imagining the awkward introductions already.
  "Maybe Josh will invite you and you'll get to meet the family too." Elise winked, before jumping off the wall.
  "Hah!" Arlandria laughed, joining her friend at ground level. "Can't see me being accepted into the Lansing family all to well, can you?"


  "Don't you dare!" Autumn shouted, grabbing Elise's arm and pulling her back towards him.
  "Ow! That hurt!" Elise turned to face him. "She's gotta find out at some point. Unless you're embarrassed? Are you embarrassed of your girlfriend?"
  "No, I just don't want to tell my parents yet. We've been dating six hours, it's hardly serious."
  "But she's your first love, Autumn!" Elise mocked.
  "Shut up!" He hissed, yanking on her arm.
  "Stop doing that! It hurts!" Elise kicked him in the shin and he pulled her arm again in retaliation. "You're gunna break my arm!"
  "Stop being a baby." He accused, finally letting go. Elise instantly rubbed her wrist.
  "I hope that leaves a mark. You're gunna be in so much trouble." She spat.
  "Oh, and I wonder what your dear Papi would think of you smoking, drinking and doing ecstacy." Autumn smirked as Elise's face fell.

  "How- You- How did you know?" She stammered quietly.
  "I know everything." Autumn replied cryptically.
  "Are you psychic like your parents?" She whispered.
  "No. I just have eyes everywhere." The pair fell into silence, Elise absent-mindedly rubbing her wrist while Autumn smirked at her, each studying the other carefully.

  "You wouldn't, would you?" Elise breathed uncertainly.
  "That depends. Fair's fair, a secret for a secret."
  "It was just one time, Autumn."
  "So? Do you think that will matter? He can forget about the drinking because that doesn't affect you as a vampire anyway, and the smoking... Well, who ever heard of a vampire with cancer? But ecstacy's different."
  "I won't do it again. It made me really sick." Autumn just shrugged and continued staring into her eyes. "I won't breathe a word about Trisha." She promised finally.
  "Then your secret's safe." Autumn agreed, turning to walk towards his room.
  "But Autumn." He turned back to face her. "I'm not just being a bitch, there really is something weird about her. If my Papi ever agrees to teach me to read minds-"
  "Leave it, Ellie. I'm old enough to make my own decisions about who I date, and I don't need you reading her mind."
  "And that goes for anyone else I date after her." He finished, heading to his room and closing the door behind him.


  "What do you think?" Kaity asked, eyeing herself critically in the mirrored walls.
  "I think I prefer the last one, but honestly you should be a wedding dress model or something because they all look so amazing on you." Shaena responded, tempted to join her friend in trying on dresses.
  "Stop saying that!" Kaity laughed. "But I prefer the last one too. This one's too... I dunno. Something."
  "It's too something?"
  "Yeah, you know what I mean."

  "Though I do like the colour of this one better." Kaity added, turning to face her cousin.
  "Yes, that colour suits you better, I think the other was too pink."
  "Really?!" Kaity scolded, Shaena giggled. "Hun, there's no such thing as too pink."
  "Ok, sorry." Shaena laughed. "This lighter pink looks better on you though."
  "No, this shade is just more wedding-y." Kaity corrected, turning back to the mirror again and sighing. "I really want that first one. It was so perfect."
  "But it was two hundred simoleons over your budget." Shaena reminded her.
  "I know, I know." Kaity smoothed the dress down and sighed again. "What do you think I'd have to do to get Winter to give me some more money for the dress?"
  "Kaity, he's been more than generous, don't put him on the spot."
  "But I'm his princess." She pouted, turning back to face Shaena as her phone started ringing on the sofa. "Is that him?"
  "Yes." Shaena replied, looking at the screen before handing it to her.

  "Baaaabyyyy?" Kaity put on her sickly sweetest voice as she answered the phone.
  "Oh no. Now what?" Winter joked on the other end.
  "Is there any movement on the budget for my dress?" Shaena shook her head disbelievingly, hearing her friends request.
  "What kind of movement?" Winter sighed.
  "Uhm... Two hundred simoleons..." Kaity replied sheepishly. Winter sighed again on the other end, and there was a pause. Kaity bit her lip in anticipation.
  "No, Kaity. Not unless you take the two hundred from something else."
  "Oh Winterrrr!" Kaity whined.
  "No." He reiterated.
  "Well where am I supposed to magic two hundred simoleons from then?!"
  "The same place you expected me to, I suppose? And don't make me out to be the bad guy either. You've got more than enough money to buy a dress that you'll only wear for a few hours. We're flying your entire family out of the country, Kaity. We have a budget we need to stick to."
  "Fine. Whatever. What did you want?" Kaity sighed, Shaena stifled a giggled at the grimace on her face.
  "Well, I rang to tell you that I think we've worked out that stone pillar and how it works, so we can sit down and talk about that later, but I've got to stay a couple extra-"
  "Are you kidding me, Winter?!" Kaity cut her fiance off angrily. "Your son is bringing his first girlfriend over for dinner tonight, or did you forget you have a family?! What, are you not going to be there for dinner now? You can't spend all your life at work!"
  "I know, I've not forgotton! I'll be home for dinner, I promise. And I won't work any extra for the rest of the week, and I'll even come home early one day and sweep you off your feet. That ok?"
  "No. It's not ok, Winter. Don't you remember last time you stayed late? You said you'd only do a couple hours and didn't get home until gone midnight."

  "Kaity..." Shaena tried to remind her friend they were in public, but all she got was a hand in her face shutting her up.
  "Kaity, last time I stayed late one of the lab technicians broke a test tube of chloroproponic acid and I had to help clean up. I promise I'll be home for dinner."
  "And what if you're not?"
  "What do you mean? I will be."
  "Well, if you're not, how will you make it up to me?"
  "I don't know, but I won't give you an extra two hundred simoleons to spend on the dress."
  "Oh, whatever. Bye."
  "Love you-" Kaity cut him off by hanging up the phone.

  "Shae, we're going. I'm not in the mood for this anymore." Kaity announced, heading towards the dressing room.


  "Mum, this is Trisha." Autumn introduced the pair, resting an arm around his girlfriends waist to show support.
  "Hello, Trisha! It's great to finally meet you." Kaity smiled warmly, welcoming the girl into her home.
  "Thank you Miss Mattell, I feel like I know you already." Trisha smiled. Kaity had a tingle run up her spine at those words, it really did feel like they'd already met, but she shrugged it off.
  "You can call me Kaity." She insisted. "My partner is working late, but he assures me he'll be here for dinner, Jaydean and Sophie, Autumn's sisters, you know them?" Trisha nodded her head yes as a response. "They're up in their room playing with makeup or something." Kaity looked around, not really knowing what to say. "This is Elise." She added, spotting the girl sulking behind her. "You already know her, though. My mum and nan are in the next room. Mum! Nan! Come meet Trisha!" Kaity called the last bit, and smiled awkwardly at Trisha as she waited for them to come through and hopefully save her from small talk. She had to remember to punish Winter for abandoning her later. He knew how much she hated things like this, she never knew what to say without embarrassing her kids.

  "WITCH!!" Lisa shouted as she spotted the unmistakable sim before her.
  "Trisha.... How....?" Taylor gasped to herself in shock. How was this possible? Trisha died of old age while the triplets were still in elementary school, how could she be standing in the room again?
  "Nan, what the hell?!" Kaity turned, appauled by her familys response to her sons girlfriend.
  "Hello, Lisa. Great to see you again, Taylor." Trisha took a few steps forward, flashing a decievingly warm smile to a very confused Elise.
  "What are you doing here?" Taylor demanded, putting on a brave face as she wrapped an arm around her mother.
  "What, you expected me to let you raise our children and never visit? You underestimated me."

  "I knew you were a psycho." Elise accused, not fully understanding what was going on.
  "Your mother sends her best." Trisha responded half-heartedly.
  "Will someone tell me what the f*ck is going on here?" Kaity demanded.
  "Trisha is your father, Kaity!" Taylor explained.
  "What?!" Autumn took a step away from Trisha, confused and repulsed.

  "What are you on about?" Kaity asked, confused. "How can she be my father? She's the same age as my youngest son."
  "It's her, it's her, it's her." Lisa repeated as she broke down crying. Taylor cradled her mother in her arms.
  "I don't know Kaity, please just get her out of here and we'll talk about it."
  "Oh, Kaity." Trisha smiled. "My beautiful youngest daughter. You're very special to me, you know? And you could be so powerful if you'd come with me and let me teach you."
  "Get out of my house!" Kaity shouted, Trisha just laughed, so Kaity grabbed her by the hair and started pulling her towards the door.

  "Mum! What the f*ck? Get off her!" Autumn still wasn't sure what to believe, but knew he didn't want his night to end like this.
  "Let her, Autumn." Elise hissed, bareing her fangs at Trisha in pain on the floor. "I've not finished my feeding lessons, Patricia. I don't mind you being my first live trial."
  "Autumn, I'll explain later. She's not your girlfriend, she's not an innocent little fourteen-year-old human, she's a centuries old witch who has tormented our family for generations. She's your grandfather, and don't say you don't believe me because you've always known I had two female parents." Kaity began to drag the witch towards the door again.

  "ENOUGH!" Trisha screamed, before disappearing into thin air, leaving a shaken and confused family in her wake.


  "What happened?"  Winter asked, confused, after returning home and finding the house quiet.
  "Trisha." Lisa sniffed, wiping another tear away.
  "She was Kaity's father." Taylor explained.
  "What?! Where is everyone?"
  "Autumn's in his room, bless him, I think he's blaming himself. I think the twins are with him. Shaena and Josh are still at Leightons, Kaity didn't want to disturb them-"
  "I assume she didn't want to disturb me, either?" Winter cut Taylor off, annoyed that his fiance hadn't called him home.
  "No, sorry. She went up to your room and cried for a while, then she came down and said she was going for a run to clear her head. I think she went to see Bonnie. Rose is on her way over to put some protective wards on the house."

  "Kaity went to the graveyard, alone?" Winter asked as the pieces of the puzzle slotted together in his mind.
  "Yes, I think so." Taylor looked worried at the look on Winter's face. "Why?"
  "She's not safe!" He replied, grabbing Kaity's car keys off the hook on the wall and running out the door.


Autumn felt violated. This was somehow his fault, he knew it. He'd put his entire family in danger, and the worst part was that Elise had warned him about her only a few weeks before. Why did she have to be right? When this had blown over she was going to be insufferable.

  "Knock knock." Elise said softly as she let herself in to his room, closing the door behind her.
  "Go away." He muttered half-heartedly.
  "I came to see if you were ok. Jaydean and Sophie said you wouldn't let them in-"
  "So you thought I'd let you in?" Autumn questioned. "I want to be alone."
  "Nobody wants to be alone." Elise replied, not moving from the doorway. He didn't respond, and she eventually sat beside him on the bed.

  "Wanna talk about it?" Elise asked after some minutes. Autumn just grunted, and they fell back into silence.
  "What was it about her?" He asked, finally.
  "What do you mean?"
  "You said there was something weird about her. What gave you that feeling?"
  "Oh, I dunno." Elise shrugged. "She just seemed a bit strange. Like, just not normal."
  "Like she was a reincarnation of my evil witch grandfather?"
  "No, I have to say I never saw that one coming." Elise chuckled.

  "My family is so f*cked up." Autumn sighed, turning to face her slightly.
  "Can't argue with that." Elise smiled. "But at least living here is never boring." The friends laughed a little, thinking back on the bizarre events of the evening.
  "I'm sorry I'm such a d*ck to you. You don't deserve it really."
  "Don't worry about it, it's just hormones. I'm the same to you." Elise smiled, and Autumn leaned over to brush the hair out of her face.

  "What are you doing?" Elise breathed, leaning into his embrace.
  "I don't know." Autumn admitted, before kissing her softly. "But it feels right."


  "I bet you would have known what to do." Kaity sighed, absent-mindedly plucking blades of grass from the ground as she spoke. "Oh, I started trying on dresses today. I wish you could have been there, just the three of us like old times. I found one that was perfect, but Winter wouldn't let me have the extra money to buy it." She sighed, ignoring the screeching of a car breaking just down the road. "I still think about you every day. Elise looks so much like you, and she's a stubborn cow like you as well." She laughed to herself, remembering when she and Bonnie were teenagers themselves.

  "Kaity!" Winter shouted as he ran towards her.
  "Great." Kaity sighed, recognising the voice. "When I want him home he's working, and when I want to be alone he comes to annoy me. Why doesn't he understand that sometimes I want some girl-time with my bestie?"
  "Kaity, we need to get out of here." Winter told her as he came to a stop beside her.
  "No, you need to get out of here. I assume my mum told you what happened tonight? When bad stuff happens I want to talk it out with Bonnie, and you know that." She replied, refusing to look up at him. "Plus, I'm still mad at you."

  "Kaity, we don't have time for this." Winter sighed, grabbing her arm and tugging gently to try and get her to stand.
  "No, I don't have time for you. I want to talk to Bonnie, there's a lot I have to tell her and I don't want you invading our privacy."
  "Kaity. I'm serious, please. I'll explain in the car."

  "No, I'm sorry, but I never get time to just sit and think, what with the kids and work and the wedding. You go away all the time, and don't have to think about running the house or forcing the kids to do homework or anything like that, you have time to be alone and think about whatever's on your mind, so let me do it for once."
  "Kaity, please, stop being difficult."
  "I'm not being difficult!"
  "You came to the graveyard, on your own, at night, after finding out there was an evil witch in town."
  "Oh chill out! I'm a big girl, I can look after myself."

  "Kaity, the stone pillar. Someone had to put the magic in there. When you tried to have a vision about it, you formed a connection, and the magic stored inside transferred to you. That's how you became a fairy."
  "But who would keep their magic in a stone in such a public place?" Kaity asked, calming down.
  "I don't think they were storing it, I think they left it there for you to find."
  "Well who-"
  "Trisha." Winter answered, cutting her off.
  "Oh." Kaity breathed, eyes wide.

 Sarcastic slow clapping sounded behind them, and they both turned to see the source.
  "Well done, Winter. I always knew you'd choose wisely, Kaity, and that you have. Pretty and clever."
  "What are you doing here?" Kaity demanded, scrambling to her feet.
  "Well, you kicked me out of your house, so I came to see my Jackson."
  "My grandfather? Look you obsessive little bitch, why don't you just leave my family alone?

  "Jackson was my first love, but he abandoned me. He walked all over me then moved away for a better education. How do you think that made me feel? I came to visit him and caught him kissing that Lisa. I told myself to forget about him, but I couldn't. He was the love of my life and we were meant to be together. I decided to move here. There was no way I'd win him back if he never saw me again, but he was faithful to your grandmother. That was when I realised I didn't need him, I didn't need love, I needed power. I could be more powerful than any other sim in history, and all it would involve was patience."

   "You bitch!" Kaity lunged forward, but Winter grabbed her, pulling her back. "All I am to you is a f*cking lab rat?! You did this to me! What are you going to do now? Kill me?" Winter tightened his grip on her, watching the witch carefully incase she made any movements.
  "I won't let you near her. No matter what you do, you'll have to kill me to get to her, and I'm sure you know what happens when you kill a genie." Winter threatened.

  "Hmm, now this is interesting. Yes, you've got a good catch here, Kaity. Hold on to this one." Trisha took a few steps closer and Kaity swiped at her with her hand, but she'd kept enough distance to be safe. "No, I'm not going to kill you. The original plan was to take your powers once you'd got the hang of them. Your psychic powers are ready for harvesting, and you've always been a natural at your fairy powers, which I always found strange as you were born a witch but can't even conjure a simple apple."
  "What do you want?" Kaity demanded, finally relaxing and letting Winter hold her.
  "Well, a psychic fairy witch is one thing, but then, just as I was thinking it was all over because I'd picked the wrong sister, you met a genie."
  "No!" Kaity shouted, swiping at her again.
  "Yes." Trisha smiled. "A wingless fairy witch genie, now that's an offer too good to pass up."
  "Stay away from my son!" Kaity cried, Winter considered letting her attack the woman, but he wasn't sure it would help.
  "Well, who knows? Maybe now he's single again he'll shack up with your pet vampire?" Trisha laughed at the tears of anger rolling down Kaity's cheeks.

  "NO!" Kaity screamed, lunging forward one final time as Trisha disappeared before their eyes. "Stay away from my son!" She repeated as the electric sparkles fizzled out and Winter's grip on her loosened.

  "Winter..." Kaity whispered, turning in his arms. "Winter, what will we do?" Winter looked into her tear-filled eyes, they were begging him to fix it all, just like he was wishing he could, but deep down they both knew there was nothing he could do.

   "Lets go home." He replied, as rain began to fall around them. He wrapped an arm around her, and pulled her close. "Forget about her. If you let it play on your mind then she's won. We'll train Autumn up and make him more powerful than she expects. We'll win this."
  "I hope it works." Kaity whispered, resting her head on his shoulder as they walked towards the car.

    1. Blogger ate my comment AGAIN! Now I have to write another one.

    2. OK, second try, this better stick!

      I KNEW Trisha wouldn't be around for long! Or she's still around obviously, but as an actual girlfriend for Autumn. Poor lad. And that sudden kiss was cute, and I kind of saw that one coming too, but will it last? He's obviously confused and upset right now, I hope he doesn't mess their relationship up even more.

      What a mindfuck, to present your "grandfather" as your girlfriend. Well at least they weren't serious. Please say they didn't have sex at any point, that would be too confusing. I hope they didn't even kiss.

      Kaity trying on dresses kind of disappeared in all the general drama of this chapter, but that was cute too. I'd like to see them married already! Hot pink, light pink or mauve, any pink is fine, just do it already! ;)

      Kaity's being a little hard on Winter though, isn't she? He really seems to be doing the best that he can. I like her stubbornness though. She's a real character.

      Hard genie training for Autumn lies ahead, then? I do hope he can stand up to Trisha. Or just kill her with fire, whatever's best!

      How convenient to be able to disappear in a puff of green smoke when someone's pulling your hair! LOL

      Great chapter, and great poses too, especially in the graveyard I think. And the hairpulling! ;)

    3. Oh I'm so sorry! I hate blogger at the moment. It ate an entire chapter, pics and all last week. I nearly flung my laptop at the wall, but it wasn't my poor laptops fault... And luckily it wasn't for the Mattells, or I really would have died. It was my easy play legacy, so the words weren't really that important.
      A hint: Copy every comment before hitting post. I've got into that habit now and saves me a lot of tears.

      Sudden kiss was sudden, I'll give you that. And nobody seems to have linked it with something Trisha said, so I'm going to have to explain it at the start of next chapter, or at least hint a little more.... :| You'll see. I hope.

      Oh, don't worry, No sex. Promise. I'd like to think they didn't kiss, but unfortunately they were together for a good few weeks so... :| Don't worry, I'm sure Autumn feels far worse about that than you do.

      I know it did, and me and Kaity had great fun in CAS picking a dress that she liked, but didn't want to get married in. I realised I have a ridiculous amount of wedding dresses for someone who so rarely stages marriages :| They'll marry! There isn't long to go now! **SPOILER** I'm gunna end the generation with their wedding because it feels right that way :) Just a couple more things to happen and they can go for it wooo!

      Kaity is stubborn and difficult at the best of times, and she's a regular bridezilla now. haha! Winter can handle it. They argue a bit more with the stress from the wedding, but nothing that can't be forgotton about :)

      Yes, Autumn's life is gunna get suddenly turned upside down, poor kid. Got a lot of magic lessons ahead of him. Considering old age didn't get rid of Trisha, I think we're gunna need a little more than fire...

      Thank you! :) I didn't make most of these, but the ones I did will be up on my site eventually. I do always keep an obsessive log of what poses I use, so if you ever see one you want just ask me and I can tell you (or send it if it's mine) :)

  2. Oh my God...
    Oh my God!
    KILL TRISHA!! Kill her with fire! Treat her like an IF doll!
    She better not hurt Autumn!

    Speaking of him, that scene with him and Elise was cute <3 I knew there had to be something between them.
    I am worried about her though, I know there are kids in my year who have smoked, and this one girl had alcohol poisoning, but no one (as far as I know) has done drugs, a lot have had sex though. Based on I'm technically the same age as her, I can't help but find it interesting...

    1. Oh my god indeed!!
      I don't know that fire would help. She already died of old age and came back as a teenager (or maybe grew up again from a baby? Who knows?).
      Autumn is already hurt (emotionally) but hopefully he'll be safe.

      Hmm... Is there something between them? They didn't know what they were doing, but it felt right.... Yeah, I'll explain that one at the start of next chapter because it was clearly WAY too subtle. lol.

      Well, when I was 14 I did all of the above. I turned out ok (I think...). I started 'living' young, so I'm kinda desensitized and it all seems normal to me, I just forget that 14 is actually pretty young... Madi (gen 2 heir) was 14 when she had Luis.... lol, guess I just like the age 14? Next gen I'll try and aim for 15 to mix it up haha!
      But yes, she's a vampire. Smoking and alcohol have no side-effects on her as she (will) gets her blood from 'donors' and so basically gives herself a full blood transfusion whenever she feeds. She can't even get drunk, which must suck so bad, but she's not going to drop dead, don't worry :)

    2. Oh good, as long as Elise doesn't just drop dead in a way that reminds you of the horror stories they tell at school. "You drink 1 WKD and the next thing you know you're dead." Is how most of them go, or you end up as an alcoholic.
      Whenever people use the age fourteen or even sixteen, I can't help but think about how it could easily be someone in my year or a few years above...

      I don't particularly see 14 as that young of an age either. We're all open to it all, and I knew someone who even grew marijuana, I just suppose people think none of us are mature. There are some who are, like I see myself as sensible.

      With me, I've been drunk and I've had sex (Once, didn't like it.) but that's it. I'd like to try a cigarette, just once so I know that I won't like it. Apparently it tastes horrible.

      Ah, a lot of this is nothing really to do with the chapter and I should stop procrastinating on my own... Ah well! Kill Trisha! There, chapter related :3

  3. (To Toxi) Hey! That's my line!
    (To Carrie) Hey! That's my line!
    *hugs and cookies for you both

    Oh Kaity! Pouting to get what you want doesn't always work sweetie. That's what shiney lingerie is for. =D And of course Kaity's wedding dress is pink. :)

    What a scene! Wow! Dating your grandfather. O_o Phew. And then Kaity is having to deal with this without Winter. It, uh, it all dissolved rather quickly didn't it? At least the extended family wasn't there too.

    Oh Josh. I'm sorry, but you're so mean to Elise (though Kaity might need to be told about what Elise is up to) and then you pull that? Right after THAT? Oh sweety. Rebounding with someone you live with is rarely a good idea. And Elise has had a tough life of it so far. He'd better treat her better than he used to. :/

    Wait. So Trisha planned for Kaity to be able to unleash the power she'd stored in the stone pillar? Only to then to and harvest it from Kaity later on?!? She's sick. Really really sick. Then again, at least now Kaity knows what happened to her. So what is Kaity going to do with that information?

    1. Your another vote for the death by fire, then? ;)

      She can wear all the shiney lingerie she wants, Winter has spoken and she will NOT get a raise in the dress budget. End of. lol. Well, we'll see. Winter is a sap really, and I'm not sure he could say no if she asked him face-to-face.

      Yep, that is some scene! And yes, Trisha ended that scene abruptly. She didn't like having her hair pulled.
      The extended family was orginally gunna be there... but so many sims to pose... So I cut it down to the bare essentials. Lisa, because I've not traumatised her quite enough lol, Taylor, because someone needed to keep a level head and explain who Trisha was. Kaity, because of course! Autumn and Trisha, because duh! and Elise because she needed to witness it in order to go into Autumns room to try and cheer him up. I did feel bad that the twins didn't get to feature. They were mentioned, at least.

      I think Kaity is the last person that needs to know!! I'm sure she knows about the smoking because she can smell it, but obviously doesn't mind for whatever reason, but I think she'd kill Ellie if she found out about that party.
      Rebounding at all is rarely a good idea... But yeah, yadayada, read above, I'll be explaining that kiss next chapter.

      Yes. Trisha is a scheming witch who plans years ahead and has amazing patience, and yes, is sick.
      What will Kaity do? Shout and scream about it? Slam doors? lol She and Winter will work something out, I'm sure.

  4. *Shrieks* How the blue blazes did Trisha manage to turn herself back into a teenage girl? And then to date her own grandson? That's just ickiness in the extreme! She is also way way too obsessed with Jackson still - hello nutcase, you're the one who dumped him!

    As for the putting the power into the stone for Kaity, intending to harvest it from her? That creature gets more disturbing the more we learn about her, and I bet we haven't even scratched the surface of her plans yet

    1. *cackles* You have no idea how long I've been giggling to myself over everyone finding out. I did hint last chapter, Trisha's name was mentioned a couple of times in the opening scene, but nobody recognised (or nobody thought it'd be *that* Trisha)
      And yes, she dumped Jackson! I'm glad someone remembers that! I couldn't work out how to remind everyone of that in the chapter...

      Oh, I'll bet we haven't! Like, how did Trisha know Kaity would go to the graveyard at all? How did she know nobody else would get to it first? What are her plans for Autumn?

  5. So, first Trisha fathers children, then she dates her grandson? The "wanting to harvest others power" is the least sick thing about her. That's one obsessive...
    Love the way Kaity handled getting her out of the house:D

    What happens if you kill a genie though? I can't remember seeing it anywhere??

    Tummy (hehe) and Elise kind of had to happen- but right after the Trisha thing? On the other hand, who can blame him? It's his grandparent after all. Please say they only dated, and never ever did anything else....

    Shaena wants to try wedding dresses with Kaity? She just really like trying cothes on, or is there another reason?

    1. Haha! I sat back and thought about my storyline as I was writing this, and had to laugh at how bizarre it is. It really makes no sense, but it's with sims so it's fine! lol.
      The dating her grandson is just insane. She could have just knocked on the door and introduced herself, but she had to do it in style!

      Uhm.. I have no idea. lol. Sorry, I just needed some reason for Trisha to not just kill them both, and that line popped into mind. So, now I'll have to think of something and squeeze that info in somewhere. haha!

      They probably kissed, but definately no more. That would be too much, and I doubt even Trisha would have gone that far.

      Hehe! I think everyone secretly (even tomboy me) wants to try on wedding dresses and feel like a princess. Shae has no immediate intentions of marriage, but that's not to say she wouldn't say yes if asked.... ;)

  6. I had to wonder if that was some kind of dig, when Arlandria asked Elise what's it to her anyway. Does she think Elise might be jealous or something? And I loved that Elise said all she needed to do was yell loud enough and Kaity would ground Autumn, lol.

    There's no such thing as too pink. lol Kaity. Well, can't blame a girl for trying for 200 more simoleons, but in light of the fact they're flying the entire family out for the wedding...yeah. Kind of silly of her, to take it out on him by blowing up about even the possibility of him being late for dinner. Sheesh! The man said he'd be there for dinner! Plus, you'd think she'd be super curious about that stone pillar, considering its influence in her life. But I guess she's got wedding on the brain.

    "I feel like I know you already"...odd words coming from someone named Trisha.

    O___O It *IS* Trisha! O___O

    Oh holy Twallan, all hell's about to break lose up in here! Oh yeah and poor Tummy!

    And she wanted to teach Kaity how to be powerful?! Yeah right. What did she really think she was going to accomplish by walking in that house under that pretense? She's done nothing but hurt them all more, which I'm sure was her goal. Poor Autumn. And poor Winter when he gets home.

    "It feels right?" Gosh Autumn, if I had a dime for every time I'd heard that :D But really, what was the impetus of that? It's an odd moment to start kissing on a girl you've done nothing but torment and fight with, particularly after finding out you were dating your grandpa.

    Fuck. I knew Trisha would be at the stone.

    Oh dear. It seems there's suddenly a lot riding on Autumn :-?

    1. I think Ria (easier to type) gets the feeling there's something between Ellie and Tummy, but it was probably more of a "shut up about this already" than anything else. And Autumn is always grounded. haha! Gives him time to skill for his future career, though!

      Haha! The too much pink line was SOOOO Kaity :P
      Kaity just wants it to be the absolute most perfect day ever, and what Kaity wants, Kaity gets... But not this time. Winter put his foot down ;)
      And yes, Kaity is a bit of a bridezilla and stressy and on edge and will blow up at anything. That fight was more "I miss you because you're always away or at work, and I don't want to admit that so I'll just shout at you instead. Even though the more you work the more likely I am to get the dress I want..."
      And yes, she did/does care about the stone pillar, but she was dress shopping and that was all she was really thinking of right then.

      MUHAHAHAHA!!! >:D

      Of course that was her goal!! People are easier to control when they're shaken and scared. She didn't want them to forget about her, so had to make herself known...

      That kiss will be explained, sorry, my hints were WAY too subtle.

      Hehe, I liked finding angles where she was hiding in the shadows ;)

      Yes, poor Autumn. He's never realy bothered with his powers, but he's got a lot of training ahead of him...

  7. 200 more simoleons? Pshaw, Kaity, that's nothing! There are houseplants in the catalog that cost 200 simoleons (that's how I would have sold it to Winter ;)). I have to admit, I'm a Bridezillas addict (it's a trashy TV show), and I love Kaity as a bridezilla.

    GAH Trisha. Is it bad that I kind of forgot about her? I'm dumb. Poor Autumn--there's a weird, quasi-incestuous thing going on there with him dating his grandfather. It gave me the creepy crawlies (which is awesome--I love weird creepy twists). And now Autumn's creeping on Elise! I saw it coming, or at least I imagined it coming. Though Trisha made a comment about that, so I'm suspicious. Poor Autumn. He has a lot on his plate right now, and he's only a teen. :c

    As for what could happen when someone kills a genie...maybe they explode? I dunno. Maybe they turn into ifrits (another kind of genie)? Maybe a curse is placed on the murderer? I could speculate all day.

    Great chapter! :D

    1. Haha! I did think that after I'd typed it, and then I started trying to work out the exchange rate of simoleons to pounds sterling... And then I decided I didn't care quite that much, and 200 sounds like a lot to most of the rest of the world, so it's fine. Plus, it doesn't work out right. An apple is about 5 simoleons, and the cheapest TV is 500 (I think). Here an apple is like 50p, but you'd be hard pushed to find a TV of the same quality as the cheapest in-game one, plus TV stand and clutter, for £50...
      But yes, Kaity was so obviously the kind of person to be a bridezilla, so it had to happen :P I've never watched the show, but I have heard of it.

      Nope! You were all meant to have forgotton about her. She was supposedly no threat by now, seeing as she died of old age when Kaity was a child. I just like surprising you haha! But yeah, poor Autumn! Can't imagine how it would feel working that one out :| He has a lot of work now, poor kid.
      Trisha did make a comment, didn't she.... ;) (You seem to be the only one who noticed that, well done!)

      Haha! I did have in mind that something might happen to the murderer, otherwise Trisha wouldn't care. Maybe they get trapped in a lamp or yeah, cursed or something. Lets hope we don't find out!

      Thank you! :D Great comment ;)

    2. ...Uhm... 50p sounds like a lot for one apple. Haha! I have no idea how much an apple costs ;)

  8. Wow. Just wow. This chapter update comes with homework :) I confess to having started in Chapter 4...all caught up now, swear!

    Okay, I'll guess...does the kiss have something to do with Bonnie? In maybe a nice way? I hope so, because otherwise Trisha bringing her up was just being even more of a bitch.

    I for one am hoping we do not find out what happens when someone kills a genie. Old age. Old age is the only way for genies to go.

    1. Oh yes and GREAT CHAPTER! Lol

    2. Started on chapter 4?! When? That's a lot of reading, even if you mean generation 4, chapter 4! Wow. Well done for catching up, hope you enjoyed it :)

      The kiss doesn't have something to do with Bonnie, that was just Trisha being a bitch. But it does have something to do with Trisha, so well done for picking up that the kiss wasn't them falling in love!

      Agreed! Hopefully both Winter and Autumn are safe. *crosses fingers*

      Thank you! :D

  9. I don't like Arlandria, she seems a bad influence on Elise.

    The trying on wedding dresses scene was too cute, but I want to know what the other dress looks like!

    And wow, Trisha. I didn't even realize she was that Trisha until Lisa and Taylor's reactions.

    And the scene with Autumn kissing Elise...that seemed to happen really fast. I actually said "wow" out loud because I didn't expect it so soon. Obviously neither of them planned for it. I can see them either being perfect together, or this being a total disaster.

  10. lol at Kaity trying to wheedle more money out of Winter. He may have said no so far, but who knows? Kaity may yet get her way! She makes a pretty bride---and trying on wedding dresses is quite fatiguing. It starts off fun though...

    O.o He dated his female grandfather? Did EA give you that idea? Did Trisha call and ask if Autumn wanted to go to the prom? lol :P Haha---the whole thing, it makes me think of Once Upon a Time episode, where Emma, one of the main characters---almost marries a flying monkey! She didn't know he was a flying monkey of course---and I totally want to write that into a story somewhere...

    It seems that Trisha has some plans set in motion---I hope that Winter and Kaity are able to counter them successfully. And while I think Autumn/Elise would make an adorable couple---somehow I am suspicious of it all...

  11. That Arlandria chick, I don't like her, she's trouble and she'll lead Elise down the wrong path. And I think Autumn should tell the adults about what Elise has been up to, it will break her Papi's heart, but at least the adults can intervene before things spiral out of control.

    I love the wedding dress Kaity had on, I think she looks gorgeous. That light pink is an unusual color for a wedding dress, but then again Kaity is an unusual girl.

    Trish, so much evil. I can't believe she would actually prey on her own grandson like that. Yuk.

    And the kiss between Autumn and Elise...I don't know, in my mind they're like siblings, I know they don't share any DNA, and their relationship would be perfectly normal, but because they were raised together it just seems off to me.

  12. Oooooooo what a great chapter!
    Trisha! Holy crap! She's one scary, um, witch.

    I'm happy about Autumn and Elise. To me, there's always been a little chemistry there. They knew they weren't related, and I think that's why they were always so extra-hard on each other.
    Still, now, after reading that ending, I worry that the attraction is all Trisha's doing when she saw how protective Elisa was of Autumn.
