The Kirk Legacy 3.5

What’s that? Finally after three months? Haha yes, you’d be correct. But, hey at least its here and I didn’t forget about it? I’ve just been busy this semester. For some reason my studious efforts aren’t making a difference for some reason….but that’s not really important haha. This needed to be updated and ideas started flowing so here we are 🙂 I think this chapter is the same length as the most. Hopefully you can make it through!

Also, the family tree has been updated! Seems our boy, Leon has been busy. He is married, and has a daughter! 🙂 Go check it out for details. It seems Nadine’s suspicions were right, they got married because Sofia was pregnant. I think that’s it. Oh, just remember (in case you forgot haha) chapters are written from the heir’s POV (otherwise stated) and in diary form.

This chapter is more dialog than “diary form”. Oh, and I would note that the international events that are occuring in this chapter are not real, and not based off of anything in particular. It was just me and my creative mind. Though, if it seems similar to something, note that I did not plagiarize anything. I may have been influenced without knowing it, but did not steal anyone’s idea. Just a disclaimer.

Note: Profanity may be used, you’ve been warned.

Diary Entry #20: 

Whoa. It has definitely been a long time since I’ve opened this up. Its definitely a little dusty..whoops. What dad and grandma don’t know won’t hurt them right? Then again my dad swears grandma haunts our very lives since she always threatened she would after she died. Grandma did have a sinister sense of humor at times. But, that’s not important at the moment. This diary is about me right? Err supposed to be anyway…I might have to recap since the last entry. As you know, me and Cale have broken up. Its been about two months now? Good riddance is all I have to say. Hopefully whatever girl he’s bossing around is for him. You also know that me and An have decided to plan another trip as soon as possible Simchina. Fortunately, its already taken this long. Two months. I haven’t been known for my patience so I’m starting to become more antsy everyday. 

“Ugh, why are there no listings about traveling aboard yet!” anger gritting through my teeth

“I’m sure there is a logical explanation for it. Plus, you keep checking every day that its starting to drive you mad.” An explained

I really wasn’t in the mood for his proper explanations. 

“An, please do not do that right now. For once can’t you just let your emotions take over. I know you’re as frustrated as me. You just are better at keeping your cool.”

“Oh? Hehe does it really bother you that much?”

He knew how to annoy me, and yet make me laugh when I didn’t want to. Damn him. 

Screenshot-30 Screenshot-33 Screenshot-36

“Oh is that smile and small laugh I hear coming from you Miss Ashylnn?” he sarcastically said

“Haha damn you for knowing my weaknesses. But, seriously I want to know why. This is important to me. I need to do this. I need to help those families.” I pleaded

“I know I’m sorry. I was just trying to, um..lighten the mood I believe is what you say here?”

“I appreciate it An, but I want to figure this out sooner than later.”

“Maybe you should email them? I’m sure if you showed a peak interest in one that isn’t listed, and mentioned that you’ve visited there previously it would look very good. Almost like a resume? Of course mention he activities you did for the natives and the educational purposes. I think that’s the best you can do. I can try to get some of the professors I know in the program to vouch for us.” he listed off

“An, that’s genius! But, you’d really do that for me? I mean that’s a lot of work and asking such a request could ruin your prime reputation in the program right? ” I frowned a little

“It could yes, but I love your enthusiasm about helping these people. You are truly a great person, and I want to do everything I can to help.”

“Oh, An. You’re so sweet. Thank you so much. You’re a good friend.”

“You’re very welcome Miss Ashlynn.” he smiled

“I still don’t like that title, but thank you.” I smiled back

An of course helped me write the email. My emotions can cloud my word judgment and make me sound incredibly stupid. I was glad to have him here. Actually, I’m glad we could become friends and remain friends. I can only imagine how much of a third wheel he felt like when it was all three of us. That was completely unfair to him. But, I do remember something quite fondly from that trip. Towards the end of our journey, when he mentioned the rising tension among the different cultures in the region. Not much coverage has been done by our media yet, so I don’t know much about the current situation. Sadly, only people really listen and care until it becomes too late.  I wanted to ask An since I’m sure he’s kept up with it daily. I could only hope I wasn’t crossing any lines. 

“An, remember when you mentioned the rising tensions among the people of the differing cultures throughout the region?”

“Hmm? Oh yes. I do remember. Why do you ask?”

“Well, curiosity may have killed the cat, but just how bad is it over there? I drew back, afraid to know the actual truth

Screenshot-45

Screenshot-49

“Ahh well you know you don’t have to worry about that right?” he fake smiled

“An. Please. I know you’ve been keeping up with it, I can see it on your face. Just like me, you aren’t a good liar. This concerns me. Not only as an citizen of this world, but if I’m going to be granted to travel there, I need to know the situation and be on guard.”

“You’re right, I am not a good liar. I have been keeping up with the Chinese news because I’m worried about my parents and family members. So far, it hasn’t reached anything to be too hostile. But, I’m afraid to say that I think things could change quickly.”

“What is going on there that could bring about such change?” I frowned again

“Sadly, its the conflicting cultures as I mentioned before. But, that’s only scratching the surface. The problem is, the surrounding regions are rich and booming with industry and population growth. The region we went to, is in the center of those regions and the weakest link if you will. The pressure is being applied for them to go from a traditional farming community to an industrious economy. And as you mentioned before, that would bring devastation to the families. Their only knowledge is on how to use the lay of the land. So now what’s happening is, that there are politicians and wealthy business moguls form the other reasons invading the current region. They’re devising plans to change the economy drastically. As for as I know is that they’ve won over the current government governing with the promise of wealth and prosperity so big changes are underway.” he rendered

“What? Are you serious. They can’t do that.”

Screenshot-52 Screenshot-54 Screenshot-56

“Yes I know. Its just hard to talk about. The sad part is I’m not even done yet. The locals have finally caught on to their schemes and have started to revolt, but have failed miserably. Many lives have been taken. The opposition is using brute force to make sure everyone is on their side, and that means bringing troops in to make sure they swear allegiance to the new ideals of their government. But, their government has been brainwashed by money and really its the wealthy business leaders calling the shots. This has scared everyone.”

What a tragedy. I couldn’t believe what An was telling me. How horrible can these people be? Taking innocent lives. Simply should not happen. These people need someone to help them revolt. Being scared for their lives just to live where they’re people started on the land and have survived using that very same land. I could feel tears starting to swell up in my eyes. I may not know what that’s like from a first hand experience, but I could feel their pain. Their cries for help. 

“That’s so sad. I couldn’t imagine fearing my life like that. To live in my own home but afraid of dying at the hands of my own people.” I whispered

“Please don’t cry Ashlynn. I don’t think I could bare to see it.” An frowned

“How can’t I? Its so sad. All I want to do is help them but yet I feel so useless.”

“You can help them, and you know what? We will help them. We will make it there one way or another. We may not be an army, but two people can make a difference in some way.”

“What? I’ve never heard you talk so confidently like that An.” I was very surprised

“I think you’re braveness is starting to wear off on me.” he chuckled pulling me into a hug

“Haha, well good. I’m glad someone appreciates my personality.”

Diary Entry #21:

Some things did happen with the family! My aunts Delia and Taryn got married recently. My dad always told us how grandma and grandpa told them their careers are important so that’s what his sisters did. They focused on their careers before having men in their lives. Now in their older age, they’ve found their prince charmings. I think its bittersweet. Aunt Delia married a Chinese doctor she’s worked with for years, Wei. Aunt Taryn married a local man she has known since high school apparently, Marlin Beamer.

Hmm what else, oh! I’m sure you remember me mentioning my brother Leon getting married to some woman? Well we finally met her. She’s very nice despite her looks. Her name is Sofia. And my mom was right, she was pregnant that’s why they got a shotgun marriage. They had a beautiful daughter, her name is Angeline. Such a pretty name for a pretty girl. Its weird seeing Leon as a dad. He’s so good with her though. I’m sure having three younger sisters helped with that. Actually its weird knowing I’m officially an Aunt myself. Doesn’t seem possible haha. Angeline looks just like Leon though, its crazy. She has his nose and our family’s famous dark blue eyes. Thanks to Grandma. She has her mom’s bright blonde hair. Definitely glad I can call her my niece. Lastly, my sister Violet has a boyfriend! His name is Willard I believe. We think he’s a little bit older, and my dad is a little concerned about that. I could care less about that. I’m happy for her is all. 

I guess I should mention that its been about a month since I sent that heartfelt email. An hasn’t been around lately to tell me anything about it. He’s been busy with many of the other international students. Funny though, in a way I do kinda miss him being around. He lightens up the mood when he’s around. But, out of the blue yesterday he did call me so we could talk. His tone was a little unsettling because he was so serious. Made me nervous about what he had to say. 

Screenshot-68 Screenshot-70

“Hey, glad you called.” I let out a little smile

“Sorry its been so long. Been busy.” he replied, avoiding eye contact

“Is something wrong?”

*sighs* “Yes and no. I’m going to just be honest with you. Our request was declined respectfully. I’m just very disappointed and didn’t want to tell you because I know how you would feel. I wasn’t necessarily avoiding it, but I knew it would be hard to do.”

“Oh. I see. Did they say why?” I questioned

“Uhh once again, yes and no. They didn’t go into great detail but they explained that things are far too dangerous over there, and it wouldn’t be safe to send students due to liability issues. Things have came true I’m afraid.” he grimaced

“What does that mean exactly? You know I don’t like vague answers An.”

“What that means is that they aren’t allowing outside visitors and tourists into the country through the program. Its not safe because as I told you a many weeks ago, the locals who have been forced to swear allegiance  are divided. Some have joined the opposition willingly and have killed their own people who disagree with their ideals. The rest have forced to stay indoors and fear their lives. But, by swearing allegiance and to keep safe they aren’t associated with outsiders. The government despises foreign visitors . They think we’re corrupting their people and will do nothing to stop us needless to say. Meaning if we were to go, our lives would be in great danger.”

Screenshot-76

Screenshot-74

“Are you serious? You mean we could potentially die if were to over there?” my eyes widened at the reality

“Yes. School can’t be responsible for our lives like that. I’m sure you understand that much.” his demeanor changing

I was a loss for words. I could die? That thought radiated throughout my body. I started to respond to the fear physically. I could feel my hands become sweaty, and I started breaking into a cold sweat. My legs felt restless. It was like I was staring death in the face. It was so surreal. 

Screenshot-78 Screenshot-81

“Ashlynn, are you alright? Looks like you’ve seen a ghost.”

Oh right. I’m still in a conversation. Glad An’s voice broke my thoughts. I started to think too much about the situation.The very scary situation I could be in. 

“What should we do? Just forget about everything? I mean. I know that’s its a stupid thing to do. Put yourself in the line of the enemy, but….but they need help. I mean An. How? What should we?…”

“I’m not entirely sure. I know how passionate you are, and I, myself am very worried. I’ll have to think it over.” he turned away

“Oh I see. I hope there is something we can do. But, if not…don’t feel bad An okay? I don’t want you feeling guilty. You did everything you could, and I greatly appreciate it. ” I half-smiled

“Thank you Miss Ashlynn. That means a lot. I’ll see what I come up with.”

Diary Entry #22:

Sorry I haven’t really wrote for  few weeks. Guess the news An broke really shook me, and brought me down. Lately, I’ve just been moping around the house and helping my parents out. Lately, I’ve noticed how they’ve really started to age, and show their age. Its amazing how its happening before my eyes and I haven’t noticed until now. Mom’s hair has started to grey, so she’s been dying it. She’s determined to stay young as long as she can. Dad on the other hand, he’s embracing aging. He still acts like a lovesick teenager when he’s around mom. They’re more love than Leon and Sofia are I think haha. They definitely emulate something I hope you have. 

My parents have kinda forgot about me actually living here, and have been living their lives too. My mom is head chef the bistro in town and isn’t showing any signs of slowing down. Dad is still on the force, and has started to get back on doing more on-hands jobs. He’s not as scared anymore. Then there’s me. Doing nothing. I hate it so much. I need to be doing something out here, not here. I feel so trapped in this house. There’s nothing for me to do here. All I could do was be on the computer all day. Lately, I’ve been researching what’s been going on Chinese new sites and attempting to translate what’s been going on. Doing my research needless to say. Things were worse like An feared. So many unnecessary deaths. It was heartbreaking to see the images and read the heart wrenching words. These people are desperate for help, and are pleading for their lives. I can’t stand around and just watch these horrible crimes happen. 

Screenshot-101 Screenshot-108 Screenshot-116

Diary Entry #23: 

I called An today. I had to talk to him about everything that’s been going on. I mean, Christ its been a month of no word and no action. I’m not a patient woman, and let’s just say I’m done waiting. I’m doing something whether anyone likes it or not. An needs to hear me out, and hear my thoughts on this. I may have been a scared little girl when he explained things to me, but I have my mind made up now. I  am going there. If I need to join the fight,  I will. Those people can’t fight it alone.

“You wanted to talk Ash-” he started

“First off, let me just talk and get what I need to say. I am going to help those people who need us. I don’t care if the university said no, and I don’t care if you agree or not. Its not fair that we just sit by and watch without acting. While we sit here comfortably in our own homes and fear nothing, they have to fear even leaving their damn house! I won’t stand for that.” I cut in

“Uh…um, I don’t know what to say Ashlynn. I’ll uh…”

“I’m not done An. Now, I don’t know if you’re going to help me by coming with, but you will tell me everything I need to know and want to know. I know I may sound like a bitch right now, but I need to say what’s on my mind. Plus, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about this. I didn’t just think of this overnight.”

“Are you finished?” his lips slowly turned into a grin

“Um, yeah.  Yes. I am. ” I sighed

“Well, I’ve been doing some research fro us, err and for you mainly. There is a way we can go. We just go as regular people. No one sponsoring us. Just me and you as travelers.”

Screenshot-123 Screenshot-132 Screenshot-134

“Of course I’m sure you know how risky that is. We’d be going straight into the enemy’s den. No one will probably help us, but if we could document the things we see, then maybe we could gain more followers? At least that’s what I was thinking. I just kept thinking about the things you said, and what you just told me only reassures me in my decision. I checked and there are still flights open to travel there.” he explained

“Wait, are you being serious? We can just buy a plane ticket and waltz right in pretty much?”

“Yes. But, Ashlynn I need to stress the risk. I know you understood what I said. But, I need you to do more than understand the words. You need to know that there’s an immense amount of risk. You’re life will be threatened the whole time.  I can’t guarantee your safety. I may look like I know my around, but I have never been in any danger, and cannot promise I can keep you alive. Of course, I would like to think I could but we need to face the facts. I’m only one man, and you are only one woman. The odds don’t look very good if we run into trouble.”

Screenshot-147 Screenshot-149

Screenshot-155

“Yes I know. That’s what I was thinking about these past few days when I was doing my own research about the events happening. I’ve  come to realize that I’d rather be out there risking my life than sitting here living it.” I smiled at how passionate I sounded

“That’s one of my favorite things about you Miss Ashlynn. You are so passionate and determined. More women need that kind of spunk like you have.” he smiled back

“But, are you sure you want to jump on the bandwagon with me? I would never want to put you at risk because of something I want. This has to be a partnership.”

“No no. Of course it will. I’m all in this as much as you are. That’s why I gathered information for us. So we could talk about it, and set up a game plan.”

“An, that’s been the best news I’ve heard in about two months. Thank you so much.” I hugged him

“You’re very welcome.” his smile widening

Diary Entry #24:

So we made the arrangements and booked our flights. We tried to book one as soon as possible, but it was another two weeks before we would descend for Simchina. I was both excited and unsure about what would happen. I definitely wasn’t scared yet. I wasn’t sure if I should be scared from the beginning  or not. I figured it was better to stay calm for as long as I can. So far so good. I just hope that we find some answers and methods to help these people. When we landed, our jeep ride from the airport was so quiet. It was quiet, but with serenity. I forgot how breathtaking the view was. Nature here was so calming. It made me forget about all of the political dilemma’s stirring up. During our jeep ride to the town we once lived in for eight months, An told me we’d be dropped off at the same inn. The driver actually remembered us, and told us that’s where he would drop us off at. Didn’t realize we were so impressionable. Or maybe it was Cale’s whining the whole time haha. 

Screenshot-39 Screenshot-42 Screenshot-44

“Its so quiet.” I finally whispered, taking in the scenery

“Yeah, about that.” An scratched his head awkwardly

“What, what is it?”

“We can’t exactly stay at the inn. I tried making reservations and the family who runs it remembers us, but refuses to house us because we are travelers and not natives. They could be persecuted and they aren’t about to take that chance. Soooo we’re on our own from now on.”

“Is that what the sleeping bags you brought with are for?” I raised one eyebrow

“Umm…yes. I probably should of mentioned that sooner, but I figured you were prepared for the worst. Sorry.” he sheepishly smiled

“No, please don’t be sorry. Its just setting in is all. Its always one thing to talk about it, and another thing to experience it.”

Screenshot-60Screenshot-62Screenshot-55

We didn’t do too much the first day. We figured we go see the one family we focused on for those eight months. See how our improvements were working for them. If they still practiced the more modern way of doing things. I would only hope they were continuing on. I was happy to visit them again, and couldn’t wait to see the mother-son duo I worked so closely with. 

When we arrived, An told me to stay back while he knocked on the door and let me know who we were. I still found the silence to be eerie. It was still too quiet. The ponds that surrounded their home seemed to be mute. There weren’t frogs or birds chirping their songs. I felt no presence whatsoever. That’s until An came back with a frown on his face. Things didn’t look good. 

“What happened?” I gently reached out my hand

“Things aren’t good here.” he sighed

“Were they home?”

“Yes, they were.”

“What did they say when you knocked and mentioned who you were?” my eyes trailed up to meet his

“你是外地. 逃離!我們不希望你在這裡種!” An repeated what they said

I only knew one of the words, which was outsiders. That couldn’t of been good. I was afraid to ask for the full translation, but An nodded and he knew I was going to ask. 

“She called us outsiders, to get away and that they don’t want our kind here.”

“That’s horrible!”

“Yes. I know.”

“Are you okay?” I frowned

“I’ll manage. But, that was harder to take than I expected. Never thought I’d be called an outsider.” he winced

“Shall we set up camp somewhere for now? I take it we’ll have to find and make our own food, so we could fish some and set up a fire?”

“Yeah, that sounds like a good idea.”

Screenshot-80

And that’s what we did. We found a spot along the river just outside of town, along the main road. We figured we would be safe there. We were close enough to town if we had any problems or needed essentials. But, we were hidden well so wouldn’t be easily detected. It was like living life as a fugitive on the run. We had huge hiking and camping bags we carried around with everything we would need. We went fishing for awhile, and caught as much as we could eat based on the size of fish we caught. While I did most of that, An built a fire so we could cook them up. We didn’t talk much. I felt like it wasn’t a good time to bring up some things since I knew An was hurting. We just sat there in silence and enjoyed each other’s company. 

Then it was nightfall. We both knew we had to sleep eventually and be up early morning so we could move out. I think we both were frightened at the idea of sleeping and being defenseless. Sure we had “weapons” that could be defensive, but nothing we wanted to use. An finally broke the silence and told me to go to sleep. He promised to sleep with one eye open and stay up as long as he could. Though it was comforting, I still had a hard time sleeping that night.

Okay! I’m finally done! As  I mentioned, lots of dialog and I actually shortened this chapter haha. Realized I took wayyyy too many pictures, so you should be proud 🙂 I hope you enjoyed this chapter, I had a fun time playing and writing it. The ideas are finally flowing and I have big plans for this generation 🙂 Just hope everyone  can handle them. The 3 month hiatus is finally over! wooo!

The Kirk Legacy 2.5

Well after four months of hiatus, and remaking sims and editing relationships in the last two days, The Kirk Legacy is back! As mentioned there are some changes The house is different, obviously. It was a house made for me by some friends over at Tumblr. The lovely ladies over at berrified-revolution.tumblr.com. They usually make houses that berrified, but I asked only for a shell of the house and so I used it for The Kirk Legacy. I don’t know if all three girls made it or just Sabrina, but I would like to give them credit, and thank them for making it for me. I love the layout and its very spacious!

Also, Nadine, Dave, Dan (Nadine’s ex-husband) and Robbie are going to look a little different since I had to re-create them. I tried my best to stay close to what they actually look like though. But, otherwise everything should be the same. Anywho, let’s get on with this much awaited update. I’ve missed this family for so long, and I have big plans for this generation.Oh! I also updated the tabs on the blog, so be sure check them out!

Remember, this legacy is in diary form and told from the heir’s POV.

NOTE: STRONG  LANGUAGE MAY BE USED

Diary Entry #22:

Boy, did I get the best night’s sleep last night in months. I slept like a baby. It was so good that I can’t even remember my dream. I’m sure it was something about Nadine, and not appropriate to write on paper haha. I’m just kidding. But, I can say it took me awhile to get to sleep that night. I couldn’t help but keep pondering what Nadine was thinking at that moment. I wondered if she was up like me, playing what happened over and over in her head like me. I wanted to know if she regretted the kiss, I know I didn’t but who knows what she thought. We didn’t say anything after the kiss. I just smiled at her and returned to my room. Not the smoothest ending, but safe to say that I’m not the most experienced guy either. My mother’s shyness is another passed down trait in this family sadly. 

Screenshot-10

Screenshot-11

But, that’s not important at the moment. Its what happened throughout the course of today. Things didn’t exactly go as I expected. But, then again my expectations might of been too high. Not sure. But, I went downstairs that morning and I noticed Nadine reading. 

“Good Morning Nadine.” I waved

After I said good morning I expected her beautiful smile to say good morning with her sweet voice. But, nothing. Not even a small twitch. She didn’t even look up, just kept reading with her head down. Her lips didn’t eve purse. Might as well of slapped me in the face for real. Silence is the worst form of punishment. I couldn’t help but feel confused, and a small ounce of hurt. She must of regretted that kiss, but why didn’t she pull away last night? I felt her lips press against mine,it was mutual. Then I thought that maybe she just didn’t know how to react like me? I found out that wasn’t really the case though.

Screenshot-13

Screenshot-14

Screenshot-15

She was repulsed by me. She wouldn’t even let me sit by her. I sat down on the couch next to her, and she quickly scooted all the way to the other side. Really? Who does that? Don’t you think you’re overreacting much? I wanted to ask her that badly, but I know that would just make her made and make her run. I tried to think of something else to say, but I came up with nothing. Everything I thought of made it sound like I was attacking her.  So I tried to make small talk…but that didn’t go so well either.

Screenshot-16

“Can you believe these celebrities these days? All that fame with having no talent” I said

No answer. A few minutes passed and I quickly glanced at her out of the corner of my eye and got a reaction.

”Ugh,” she sighed as if she were annoyed

Yep, I didn’t know how to handle the situation, and needed some outside help. Calling Dave. 

Screenshot-18

I know you’re probably thinking that I run to Dave when something goes wrong, but its only when it comes women and relationships. He knows how to read women, even though he treats them poorly, and doesn’t believe in settling down. He still knows them, and I have no fucking clue about them. 

“Hey Davey! Wanna hang out later?” I over-exaggerated

……….

“Alright, sounds good, Just come on over, since you’re embarrassed for me to see your bachelor pad.:”

Screenshot-20

Screenshot-21

Screenshot-22

It didn’t take long for Dave to rush over, he can always tell when I call for advice. One thing I don’t particularly like. Reminds me of my mother. She always knows when something is wrong, and can tell when you’re lying. But that’s not the point. Dave knew it was about Nadine, as he tries to signal without her seeing. I nodded, and then he takes a big sigh. He has a love-hate relationship with the whole idea of Nadine. Its a struggle for him.

“So what is it this time?” he asked

“Uh, okay here goes. I kissed Nadine last night.” I couldn’t help but smile as I said those words

I stopped Dave before he really put his two cents in about that fact alone. 

“But, there’s a problem. Today she’s acting as if I don’t exist, like I did something wrong.”

“Oh Josh, what did you get yourself into?” he frowned at me

Screenshot-23

Screenshot-24

“Josh, she’s bad news. I know you’re being a good citizen, and law abiding officer, but she isn’t right for you. You’re not her type, and she shouldn’t be yours.”

“Ohhh you just don’t like her because of the choices she’s made, that doesn’t mean that’s who she is deep down.” I defended

Screenshot-25

“That may be so, but she’s one of those girls that can put on a good act. She’s just playing you to take sides for her. Taking advantage of your good kindness.” he explained

“I don’t believe that. I believe she’s a good-hearted person, and just went through a period in life where she wasn’t sure on what to do. She just needs guidance so she can get back to where she was. Plus, whether acting or not, she’s shown great character and I love the person I’ve gotten a chance to know.”

“Look, I just don’t want you to get your heart-broken, and me having to be the best friend saying told you so. Not that I would say those exact words, but you know what I mean.”

Screenshot-26

“Yeah I do. I appreciate you looking out for me, even though I know I don’t return the favor haha. I just need to corner her and have a chat.” I chuckled

“That’s because I don’t need looking after!” Dave laughed

Screenshot-28It was decided, I just needed to find an opportunity to talk to her alone. No other distractions, but that’s impossible in this house. I don’t think I’ve ever had the house to myself for a night. I just had to coax dad into taking mom out for date night. Mom wouldn’t turn down a request from the love of her life, plus she loves date night. 

I just can’t believe what I’m feeling. I do believe I might be falling in love with Nadine, and yet there’s so much I don’t know about her. I’m not sure if I’d like to know, but then again its not important to know about someone’s past always. The present is all that matters. I do believe she’s a good person who’s made bad choices, and hasn’t found a way to recover from it. I wonder if she feels the same way about me, or maybe she just likes me. Its hard only knowing one side’s feelings.

Date night apparently was a success for my dad. Tonight my mom decided to announce to everyone in the house that they were going out and wouldn’t be back until later. I would rather not think about what they’re going to be doing, but at least I can have some alone time with Nadine to resolve what’s going on.

After my parents left I went downstairs to see what she was doing. She was sitting on the couch watching a movie. “Perfect” I thought, this would be a good time to talk to her and get the bottom of why she’s been so distant. I purposely sat down next to her, kinda closely. She didn’t move this time. 

“Can I sit here?” I asked nonchalantly

“Sure, why should I care?” she spat out

“Why have you been so distant these past few days? I hope its not because of me.”

“What? No its not really. I couldn’t be mad at you. I’ve just been confused and wasn’t sure how to go about it, and it was frustrating me. Needed space to think.”

“Maybe I should come comfort you of that matter then.” I winked and leaned in closer to her

“Can’t say I’d object to that, you do have a way of comforting people.” she giggled

“Maybe I should take your mind off of it completely.”

I know that line sounds cheesy, but it makes her laugh and giggle. She seemed to like it, and so did I.  Eventually one thing lead to another, and things were taken to the bedroom. We were both caught up in passion. I couldn’t help but feel her lips on mine, and her warm skin beneath my fingers. I could feel she wanted it just as much as me. Eventually we found ourselves tumbling on the bed, kissing, laughing and exploring each other’s bodies. If you’re asking the main question, yes things lead to sex. As any man would say, yes it was great and satisfying. I imagine it was for her too. 

Screenshot-42We ended up falling asleep in each other’s arms. I loved the feeling of her head rested on my chest. The moment was perfect, I wouldn’t change a thing about that night. It was just right, and I only hope for many nights to come that end up just like the one I had. Or at least I thought as I lay there listening to her breathe. I said one little line, and everything fell apart.

“I think I love you.” I whispered in her ear

That was a big mistake. Once again, the reaction I witnessed wasn’t the one I was looking for.

She quickly scooted out of bed and stood staring at me with anger in her eyes. I got up to face her, and ask what’s wrong but she cut me off.

“What?” she gritted through her teeth

“What do you mean?” I was confused

“What did you just say?: she repeated

“I said I think I’m in love with you.”

“How dare you! I don’t need your pity love!” she yelled

Screenshot-45

Screenshot-46

“Pity? You think I love you because I feel sorry for you? Why the hell would you think that?” I argued

“Because there’s no possible way you can love a woman like me. You don’t know me, all you know is that I was some damsel in distress that you rescued and now you feel bad so you’re telling me this now!

“How delusional are you? I would never lie about something I felt so strongly about. Nor would I lie to you. I like you Nadine, I really do. I’ll admit I didn’t think it was possible, but I can’t deny how I feel.”

Screenshot-47

Screenshot-49“Maybe you should of listened to your own instincts, and kept it that way.” she sneered

“What? I’m telling you I love you because its true. I love the woman I’ve gotten to know, not who you used to be or where you came from. I’m not that type of guy, you of all people should know this. I’m different, I’m that really nice guy that only comes around once in a while. Besides, if don’t accept my feelings, you should of stopped me last night, and declined to go on a date with me. How can you say what you have, when your actions speak differently?” I explained

……….

“I swear to you Nadine, I love you. I’m telling you this because you deserve to know, and I can’t imagine not having you here.”

Alright that’s it 🙂 I hope you enjoyed this update as much as I have. I couldn’t wait to publish it, and I can’t wait to start playing again and get more updates out! I hope the readers have stayed with me throughout the four months of absence. I also added new downloads!

The Kirk Legacy 1.5

Ha! Told you 1.5 would be out soon 🙂 I’m on a roll with these chapters I swear haha. This chapter is more pictures than anything though.

Diary Entry #16:

Life with Adan in it romantically has been, well..certainly different. Not in a bad way at all. Not that I didn’t have his company before, but its still nice to have someone want to come over, and spend time with me. Especially to talk to, and well hold me too hehe.

He comes over just about everyday, or at least when he can. I offered to come over to his place, but he said he didn’t want to be teased by the guys, so I obey his wishes. Plus, I didn’t really want to go over there anyway, I was just being nice in offering. We do a lot of stuff together from playing videogames, chess, and even eating breakfast together. I’ve been giving those lessons I offered. He’s doing much better let me tell you that. His pancakes are the best, but not as good as mine 😉

For some reason, he really likes to take me out. Don’t get me wrong, having “date night” is essential, but I think he takes it to the next level. I mean one night, it was about 1 am and he decided to go get a tattoo at the last minute. Haha, it was fun because the guy thought we were drunk because we were so giggly. A lot of times we go to our favorite restaurant too, the one night we dress nice and show off. The past night, he took me to the beach. At night of course, I don’t know why we can’t go during the day ever.

“Ugh, Beth you’re supposed to put your swimming suit on.” he playfully sighed

“I’ll freeze to death!” I joked

“I swear, you can be the most difficult person I’ve met. “

“Right back at you.”

“Oh well, guess we can’t go swimming. Time to go home.” I sarcastically said

“You could always go in your underwear and bra…” he winked

“No. then I’ll definitely freeze.”

“Well you’re no fun.”

I just smiled, because even though it frustrates him, he likes it when I’m difficult.

“You know, I can always keep you warm.” he softly said pulling me into a hug

“Hehe, and how is that?” I giggled

“By holding you all night.”

“Well than you can’t play that new song for me like you said you would tonight.”

“Ohhh that’s right. Thanks for reminding me.” he got all excited

He quickly ran to the car and came flinging his guitar case around because he was so excited to play this new song for me. I’ll admit, he’s pretty good and the way his face lights up is cute. I’ve never seen anything like it.

Eventually after he performed his song, he went and got dressed and we found ourselves in a nearby pavilion until the sun rose. I know! Couldn’t believe i said up that long myself. I seem to be tired all the time. The view from where we were was beautiful too as the sun slowly rose over everything. Perfect ending to the perfect day.

“Sooo, since we haven’t really made it official….” he paused

“I’m confused.” I said

“Haha, sorry. What I was trying to say…is that maybe we should start using the titles, boyfriend and girlfriend. Unless you don’t want to?”

“Aww, of course I do!”

“Don’t get too carried away.” he chuckled moving a piece of hair behind my ear

“Haha, I won’t. I’m just happy at the moment.” I smiled big

I lied, that was the perfect ending to the perfect day.

Later that night, and after sleeping the whole day, we decided to have a late dinner. While making us something good, Adan was sitting on the counter and motioned me to come over by him. Then he wrapped his arms around me.

“What?” I asked

“Just wanted to kiss your sweet lips.” he whispered before he kissed me

“Oh that reminds me!”

“Argh, what? You’re ruining this what you ladies call, “cute moment”.”

“I was going to ask you to just move in permanently.” I said quietly

“Oh really? Well, I do accept your proposal Miss Bethany.” he got all formal

“Haha did you really have a choice?”

“…Guess not.”

A Few Months Later:

Diary Entry #17:

Adan and I have been living together for awhile now. Let me tell you its been very nice. Now the work load is is shared between us, must nicer. In fact, he does the laundry most of the time. It is is so nice, I hate doing laundry. Plus, guys should help out anyway.

Today he told me he was going to take me somewhere special. I asked him where, but he refused to tell me. I was a little made, because I’m not one to like surprises. I like to know everything haha. Kinda defeats the purpose, but its just the way I am.

When we pulled up to the place, it was said “Community Gardens” on the sign out front. At first, I was like, “why in the world are we here?” but then I just let Adan lead me into the place. Of course he told me to close my eyes.

“Okay, open your eyes now.” he finally said

When I finally got to open my eyes, what I saw was a beautiful array of plants and flowers. I was not expecting this when I read community gardens. I was excepting half of the plants to be dead and old people walking around. Then again I wasn’t expecting to come her at all.

“Wow, Adan this is really beautiful.” I was amazed

“Glad you like it. I was hoping you would.”

“Like it? I love it!”

“Haha glad you see you so happy. Love to see you smile.” he whispered

“Thanks.” I said quietly breaking our gaze

He noticed I looked down, as my face turned bright red. Don’t ask me why, it just did.

“What? Can’t look at me?” he teased

“Ha-ha, shut up. Be glad I do look at you.” I joked

“Ouch….I’ll keep that in mind.”

This is when he started acting funny. He then let go of my hands quickly, and said something about why we really came here. This made me confused, because I thought we were just on an unofficial date or something. He told me to just stand there while he surprised me again. Great, surprises.

“Umm, Adan what are you doing?”  I wondered

“Hold on, you’ll see.” he answered

“There we go.”

“OHMYGOD! YOU DIDN’T? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?”

“Um, no Beth. This is the real deal, and yes I did. Do you want me to say the good ole’ line? Or is it self-explanatory?” he chuckled

“Yes, Yes, Yes! Its a definite Yes!” I screamed like a fangirl

“Haha well good, I was hoping you wouldn’t say no.”

“I love you so much.” I whispered trying not to cry

“Aww, I love you too sweetie.” he kissed my cheek

Well, I’ll admit I like both surprises today. I’m engage! Can you believe that? I still can’t. I mean really? Whoa. Its like a flash of your life kind of thing, but in a good way. I’m so excited! Just to get married, not plan it. Haha, planning can be a pain sometimes. I wasn’t expecting this at all. Wow, I really need to calm down haha.

A Year Later:

Diary Entry #18:

Well, today or tonight is the big moment. Yes, I will be a married woman by the end of the night. That’s so exciting to say! I’ll be Bethany Rae Shallow. Exciting! Let’s just hope he likes the dress, I went with the traditional way. Him not seeing it until the day of. Wasn’t a lot of selection here, but I made do. We decided to have it at night too, and to be small…a little more romantic. Actually its just us, and a pastor. Yeah I know, but Adan doesn’t really get along with his brother and John hates Adan. Well doesn’t like him. That would be awkward.

Before the ceremony, Adan told me he wanted to tell me something. This made me nervous. Not a good nervous either.

“Why do you look so scared?” he asked

“Well you said you had to tell me something.” I trembled

“Oh, its nothing bad. I just wanted to serenade you a little song is all.”

“Oh….okay.”

Forever can never be long enough for me,

To feel I’ve had long enough with you

Forget the World now, we won’t let them see

But, there’s one thing left to do

Now that the weight has lifted

Love has surely shifted my way

Marry Me

Today and Everyday

Marry Me

If I ever get the nerve to say “Hello” in this cafe

Say you will

Mm-hmm

Say you will

Mm-hmm

Together can never be close enough for me

Feel like I am close enough to you

You wear white, and I’ll wear out the words I love you

And you’re beautiful

Now that the wait is over

And love has finally shown her my way

Marry Me

Today and everyday

If I ever get the nerve to say “Hello” in this cafe

Say you will

Mm-Hmm

Say you will

Mm-hmm

Promise me

You’ll always be

Happy by my side

I promise to

Sing to you

When all the music dies

And Marry Me

Today and everyday

Marry Me

If I ever get the nerve to say “Hello” in this cafe

Say you will

Mm-hmm

Say you will

Mm-hmm

I started crying. I couldn’t help it, it was so beautiful and honest. Not to mention, romantic. By the time he was done, my make-up was probably smeared, and I looked like a bridal mess. Then he came over and gave me a hug and asked if we should do the real-thing now. I laughed, told him I loved the song, nodded, and  wiped away the tears.

“You look stunning tonight.” he whispered

“Aww, well you don’t look too bad yourself.” I winked

It was a beautiful ceremony, couldn’t of gone better. I’m glad it was at night, makes everything look so much prettier. Especially with my dress hehe. Afterwards, since we didn’t really have an guests, me and Adan had a bonfire and roasted marshmallows. That was the one of the best parts, and seeing him try light the fire was comical haha. He was having some troubles.

We officially ended the night cuddled up in one another. It was one of the best days I’ve ever had.

Almost a year Later:

Diary Entry #19:

Whoa sorry for the lack of update. Been a busy year. My apologizes, but hey? At least I’m here now. So much to tell of course. No, not pregnant don’t freak. Actually, I’d be freaking out more. Right now, we’re enjoying the life of newlyweds. Its been fun. I even updated my look, I look more like a wife now. Adan’s been trying to look more like a Rockstar I think. Haha, but he’s been promoted to looking for new talent for the Record Label he works at. Its good news and bad. Good because he’s succeeding, bad because that means he has to start traveling to the big city that’s closest to us, Bridgeport. I’m not too happy about that. He hasn’t had to leave yet, but how will I take it when he does? I think that’s why he decided to approach me with a suggestion. I didn’t take it well.


“Hey hey!” he cheerfully said

“Hi there.” I smiled back

“Your hubby as a question.”

“What does he want to ask?”

“Well, I’m not sure exactly how to put this.” he hesitated

“Just ask me, I’ll try to be understanding.” I sighed

“Well, how about instead of me traveling, we just move there? It would be much more easier and save you some lonely nights.”

“Wwh…what?”

“Now, don’t freak. Its just a suggestion.” he reassured

“Adan, I don’t think…..” I just closed my eyes in disbelief

“Now, Now. I don’t want you to decide right now. I want you to think about it, and get back to me. Okay?”

“Fineeee.”

“Thanks Beth.” he smiled

“Yeah, yeah.” I mumbled

I waited until he went in the other room. I just put my hand over my face. How am I going to tell him that’s not a good idea, and that I don’t want to move? He won’t take that lightly. I just know it. He’s going to have a fit, and argue with me until he’s right. To tell you the truth, I’d rather deal with lonely nights because at least I would have my job here, and friends.

Like to give credit to the song Marry Me by Train.

Alrighty! Done! Once again, I hope you liked it 🙂 I don’t know when the next update will be, but might be awhile.

 

Also, I tried uploading Adan, but something went wrong, so I’ll again tomorrow. If I can’t upload him to the sims 3 website, I’ll upload him as a sim. file.

 

Adan is now up for download, you can find him under the Downloadables Tab 🙂
