Range Valley – Round 9 – Van Herten

Welcome back to Range Valley, population 3,640.

Marshall graduated from RVU last round, and has spent most of his round avoiding calls from Ruqayyah Qadir. Apparently, she fails to understand that he doesn’t want to come over any more. He is starting his own round now.

Instead, Marshall invites Prof. Benjamin Reiner over. Benjamin was his professor at RVU, and they always had a spark. Now that Marshall is no longer a student, they can take things to another level.

The two fall in love as a mascot looks on, feeling uncomfortable that this school reunion wasn’t what he thought it was going to be.

Benjamin moves in. He has cute elf ears, which I like. He is a Family sim with the LTW of reaching his Golden Anniversary.

Marshall finds a job in Music. He is a Fortune sim who wants to earn $100,000, so music seems to be a good idea.

With their futures secured a little bit tighter, Marshall proposes.

Benjamin accepts, and the two have a quick, traditional Range Valley marriage immediately afterwards.

Benjamin starts studying, as his skills aren’t that great, considering he was a university professor…

He also gets a job in education again, starting as a Playground Supervisor.

The couple settle in happily, and decide to start their family together, using the scientific breakthrough made by Lilias Parmeley and Poppy Nanale.

The pregnancy seems to have taken.

A pop later confirms it, and the couple are very excited to meet their new baby. Marshall has gotten a promotion or two, and Benjamin is enjoying being a house-husband.

It’s not long before Benjamin goes into labour.

He gives birth to a little redheaded boy, who they name Maxim.

Marshall arrives home to feed baby Max. The weight of the child in his arms feels comfortable, and he can already see parts of him, and parts of Benjamin in his face.

The happy couple decide to expand their family a little. Benjamin has visions of at least four or five children running about. Marshall might concede to three at most.

Max’s birthday rolls around!

Definitely a little cutie! I think he looks more like Benjamin, but I think he has Marshall’s eye colour.

And the happy couple are expecting again!

“Hello? No, Marshall’s at work at the moment. Can I take a message?”

“What do you mean he has a daughter?!”
