Welcome back to Range Valley, population 3,400.
Now that Alice is a grown woman, the Parmeleys have decided to transfer their family details into the Savatier name. They have also moved into a bigger, nicer house.
Etienne and Alice are very happy together. They go out on several dates a night in order to work towards Alice’s LTW of 50 Dream Dates.
Alice is climbing the ranks of the Journalism career. I am letting the Savatiers decide for themselves when they start a family – Alice is a Pleasure sim, and Etienne is a Family sim, so I’m not sure how long that might take.
Etienne and Ash get on brilliantly. Ash follows Etienne around the house, trying to tell him jokes, or to hug him. Etienne puts up with this.
I guess we don’t need to wait too long. I’m kind of surprised that it was this quick. It might be the casual woohoo odds that have caught them out, though. 5 dream dates a night mean that the odds are pretty stacked against them.
Bam! Pregnant Alice has been pretty easy to deal with. Her needs stay pretty high, and she mostly takes care of herself.
In anticipation of his looming grandchild, Ash decides to hang up his spandex and retire from the Criminal Mastermind job.
Poor Etienne is trying hard to concentrate on his chess game, but SOMEONE is being very loud and inconsiderate.
It’s Alice giving birth, of course.
A boy! Meet Marcel, who has his father’s dark hair, and his mother’s lighter skin.
And a girl, Sylvie, who is entirely her dad at the moment.
Etienne is still working his way up the ladder in the Science career. He wants to be in Law Enforcement, but that really isn’t showing up. Maybe they know who is father in law was?
Birthdays come along quickly in Range Valley.
Little Marcel looks a lot like Alice to me?
And Sylvie still looks more like Etienne. She is absolutely precious.
We end the round with the proud grandparents. The twilight years are being very kind to Ash and Shelby, and they hope to enjoy as much time with their new grandchildren as possible.
