Welcome back to Range Valley, population 4,400.
Last time we left the Kanes, Eli and Maisie were awaiting the arrival of their first child, and were mourning the loss of Eli’s mother, Miriam.
Didn’t have to wait for long! Maisie goes into labour.
Welcome to Stellan Kane, the newest arrival!
Meanwhile, ACR has decided that Nolan has been alone for long enough, and throws Rebecka McAuley at him. He does not resist.
Nolan knows all too well that life is short, and he has fallen hard for Rebecka. He proposes.
And Rebecka gets a negative memory? No idea why, she’s not a Romance sim. Maybe the realisation that all her soon to be step children are older than her?
Rebecka is a popularity sim with the LTW of becoming a Media Magnate. She is currently a Criminal Mastermind, of all things.
Stellan’s birthday wraps around!
And he is pretty cute! I love this hair on toddlers.
The two couples spend a little time together.
Stellan is growing quickly, and Maisie says he’s a very bright kid, even if he is her son.
Oops. Rebecka and Nolan are expecting.
Rebecka and Nolan quickly get married, wanting to make sure that this baby has the same rights as Nolan’s older children. Weirdly enough, they marry under a picture of Nolan in his youth. Symbolism! Anyway, they take Rebecka’s name.
Nolan is beyond proud of his little grandson, and adores teaching him. Stellan adores his grandpa, too.
Stellan, where are you – Oh.
Nolan McAuley-Kane (Das) was a popularity sim who wanted 5 Top Level Businesses, and achieved it. He was married to Miriam Kane, until her death, and had three children with her, Zoya, Mina and Eli. He had 9 grandchildren, Benjamin, Morgan, Audrey, Ivy, Opal, Sage, Pearl, Violet and Stellan. He had only recently married his second wife, Rebecka McAuley, and was awaiting the birth of their first child.
I actually feel really bad for Rebecka.
Little Stellan slowly learns to cope, and ages up.
He’s a cutie! And looks a lot like Nolan, to me.
Rebecka chose to give birth in an awkward spot, so I didn’t get any pictures of it. But, here’s a picture of the baby! A girl named Eve, because Eve means Life.
Time flies, and it’s Eve’s birthday before the family knows it.
Eve is a cute one, and she has Nolan’s dark hair.
The birthday cake remains uneaten. The family needs to come to an agreement, of some sort. The Lee-Karimi family might be able to make communal living work, but it’s not something the McAuley-Kane family are interested in. At the moment, the Kanes are suggesting they move, and Rebecka can keep the house, and half the money, and the businesses get distributed amongst grandchildren.
Rebecka will think about it.
