Welcome back to Range Valley, population 760.
We return on Mina’s birthday –
“No, we don’t. You just lost the photographs from the two days before my birthday.”
Sh! Nothing happened, anyway.
Mina aged into a very pretty young lady. I figure she was one for comfy clothes, so she gets a cute hoody/sweater dress thing that I would wear if it was an option.
The first order of business is finding Mina a job. Her LTW is to have six grandchildren, so I put her in the business career, like her mother. We can always use more business districts.
But Mina is more interested in her LTW. Unfortunately, she is having a hard time meeting the right people. Justus Ma over here is also family, but they have no chemistry, and he rejects her advances constantly.
The other child left at the Kane household is Eli, who is very popular. He is constantly bringing kids home from school. Maisie Bellamy is his latest best friend in the whole wide world ever.
Mina climbs the ranks of her career very quickly. I don’t know if it’s Miriam pulling strings, or if Mina just has the gift of money making, like her parents.
Mina also meets this gentleman, Karsten Zeelan, who is part of my townie repopulation program, seeing as we were running low. Mina and Karsten hit it off quite quickly, and have two bolts together. Karsten is a family sim.
It’s Eli’s birthday! Grow up cute, sweetheart!
Eli does not disappoint. He is a fortune sim with the LTW of becoming The Law. He’ll need to head to college for that one, then.
Karsten was also invited to the celebration, and Mina takes the opportunity to introduce her new boyfriend to her mother.
Mina invites Karsten around regularly. They’ll get their own place together at the end of the round, when Mina moves out.
“Oh, hey Karsten. It’s Mina. Of course. You would know that. Um. Do you want to come over? We need to have a chat. It’s nothing bad. Don’t worry. No, really, don’t worry. But I can’t tell you over the phone. So come over? Urgent? Well…”
