Welcome back to Range Valley, population ???.
Why is that? Because I am an idiot. I recently made a file with all my sims listed, and guess what? I have more playable sims than I thought. I have 52.
So, we are actually at population 988.
Amaya is accosted by May Bellamy, who regails her with the story of how she sent her husband packing.
Which makes Amaya appreciate her loving marriage with Dean all the more. The couple retire, as they are nearing the end of their time, and plan to celebrate their love.
And who better to invite to your anniversary party than your many, many children?
Champagne flows, and the Lees have a roof-raiser of an anniversary party. It also counts as a family reunion, which is really cute!
It’s also the remaining two quads’ birthdays. As a gift, Dean passes Kit Kitchens to Luca, as he is a fortune sim.
Dean also takes Luca to his new business, and with a little hard work, Luca earns a gold sales badge.
The quads then return for their birthday, and makeover. Lacey looks like Leila, but without the alien ears.
And Luca doesn’t look very alien at all, other than his eyes and skin. He is Amaya all the way.
Speaking of Amaya… I feel really bad for missing this one, to be honest.
Amaya Lee (Zarubin) was a Family sim with the LTW to be Captain Hero. She leaves behind a husband, Dean, nine children and a step-son, Liora, Leon, Linnea, Leila, Laurel, Lilias, Lacey, Lachlan, Libby and Luca. She also leaves behind 10 grandchildren, Daisy, Ridley, Axel, Soren, Ruby, Levi, Amity, Katrien, Ben and Morgan.
The next night, Dean also passes on.
Poor Dean. He was a great founder, and I will miss him. At least I have a ton of children to remember him by.
Poor Lacey took the deaths very hard.
Before they died, the Lees had agreed that they wanted to donate money to improve the university. They donated $1,000,000, and RVU has used that funding to open the Lee Laboratories, and can now offer science degrees on their own campus, rather than as distance learning.
This generous donation does mean that Luca and Lacey need to work on bringing funds in again. Luca finds a position in the entertainment career, and Lacey finds a job in athletics.
However, Luca is feeling the pressure. He never dated as a teenager, and hasn’t met anybody as an adult. He calls up the local matchmaker, and hands over $5k, which is the bulk of what they have left.
Apparently, Luca is just doomed, as the best the matchmaker can offer is this woman, who was so rude that I didn’t bother to write down her name. I think it was Kelly. Whatever. Kelly can shove it.
Whereas Lacey calls up old flame, Samuel Parmeley. They flirted and fooled around a bit as teenagers, but Lacey could use the distraction now.
Lacey and Sam make another notch on each other’s belts, and Sam leaves.
We end the round with Luca climbing the ranks. He and Lacey have decided that he will stay at the house, and she will move out at a later date.
