Welcome back to Range Valley, population 63.
Last we left Miriam and Nolan, they were very much in love, pretty wealthy, and had two daughters.
Now that we have some top level businesses in town, Miriam gets a job in business, hoping to earn us our first business district.
So Miriam heads out to work while Nolan is a stay-at-home dad.
Mina grows up! You may or may not remember, but she was a seriously ugly toddler. And you must be thinking “but she’s so cute now!”
Wrong! She’s cute from the front, but her nose is barely existant. Shame, especially since Zoya is incredibly cute!
Zoya also likes to play piano in the most intense way possible!
Time to see the damage! Good luck, Zoya!
“I don’t need luck! Even if I’m not cute, I have lots of hobbies and interests, and plenty of friends, so even if I’m ugly, I have plenty of things to keep me going, and I’ll have more important stuff to do, and I just want to get older so that me and Laurel can hang out again, because we’re technically in different classes now, even though we’re the same age really and – ”
Just age, sweetheart!
Luckily, Zoya doesn’t need to worry! She is cute as! Zoya becomes a Knowledge sim, with the LTW of becoming a Media Magnate. Probably not going to happen, as we need a population of 1000.
Most teenagers, if I am to believe American media, get a car or something for their sixteenth birthday. Zoya gets to help out at the family business, yay!
“My organs! My precious, squishable organs!”
Still, with Zoya’s help, we get one of Nolan’s businesses (I Hate My Neighbours; Sound Shop, selling instruments and stereos) up to level 10! We’re 20% of the way to Nolan’s LTW.
Zoya does get to be somewhat sociable, and make friends as well as being an unpaid employee at her dad’s various businesses.
“So then I said it was fine, and we do refunds a lot because people buy their kids instruments all the time and they never realise that you can start a kid on an instrument too early like this one woman bought a drumkit for her three month old and I said that the kid was probably too little and she said no he wasn’t and it would be fine so I sold it to her and then she came back because it turns out her son can’t sit up unassisted yet and can barely play anything – ”
“Can I go home now?”
At least Laurel still appreciates his very talkative friend!
And when Zoya later rolls a want to flirt with Laurel, I can’t help but oblige. They are a two bolt couple.
Aw, yay! My first born in game couple!
“So is he your boyfriend?”
“Kind of I guess I really like him and he really likes me and I have the want to go steady with him locked but Avenie isn’t going to achieve it yet because she knows I’m going to get really sad when I cant go to college so she’s waiting for the last moment to let me fulfil that so I can be platinum when I age up next and – ”
“Zoya. Just say yes. Kind of.”
Back at Art Wall, an inappropriately dressed May Bellamy gives us the last star to bring it up to rank 10! 40% of the way to Nolan’s LTW!
And who is this creeping along? The very first genie offering in Range Valley? Beautiful!
Okay, I’m sorry, I caved. Nolan has SUCH a difficult want, and I am SO bad at businesses. He wishes for peace of mind. BUT! I will still achieve his LTW. I just didn’t want him to die super early because of me being bad at this game. The other two wishes are for money, obv.
And we leave it there, at Art Wall, where a patron questions whether shoes are allowed in the hot springs. At your own risk, sir. At your own risk.
