Range Valley – Round 10 – Qadir

Welcome to Range Valley, population 5,580.

Ruqayyah has been a little unlucky in life. She had a fling with Marshall Van Herten, and had his baby, and the two have been at loggerheads since. She is now pregnant again, this time by local Romance sim, Ira Riley.

She invites Ira over to spend soem time together. Though Ira is now well aware that little Karima isn’t his child (the hair is a dead giveaway), he is very fond of the little girl. He has his own older daughter, Kitty Riley, but was very much a weekend dad.

Ruqayyah bites the bullet, and invites Ira to move in with her. He accepts – he is getting up there in age, and he really is happy with Ruqayyah, and he really does love Karima like his own.

But Ruqayyah never stays lucky for long. She receives a demotion at work, and comes home devastated.

She tries hard, but it feels like the more she tries, the worse things get.

Ira has cleaned up since moving in, changing into slightly more appropriate clothing, and cutting his hair.

And it’s not the only surprise Ira has for Ruqayyah. He actually had the want to get engaged to her, so I will happily indulge.

Ruqayyah accepts, of course, and immediately pops into her next trimester.

The couple decide to tie the knot then and there. Ira takes Ruqayyah’s surname, as Ira Riley is a bit of a mouthful.

They are a seriously cute little family together.

And Ruqayyah manages to get in a couple of promotions at work.

One last rub for luck!

And Ruqayyah gives birth in the morning!

To a little girl! Inaya has her mother’s skin and hair, and her father’s eyes. There is no doubt that this girl is Ira’s.

Ira spends his last few hours as an adult building snowmen, because it is his birthday, too.

He makes a handsome elder, and goes in to cuddle his little girl as a reminder that it’s not all bad. Also, the snow disappeared really quick? Glitch?

“Hi!”

Karima! I missed your birthday!

“Yes, you did.”

Sorry. At least you are super, super cute!

Ruqayyah is still very attracted to Ira, despite his age.

“What’s that supposed to mean?”

You are so old, dude. So old.

“Don’t listen to her.”

Inaya’s birthday rolls round quickly, and the family opt to celebrate quietly at home.

Inaya definitely looks a lot more like her mother. She’s a real cutie.

A dose of smart milk later, and Ira takes over teaching duties.

While Karima chats up every child walk by she can. Here, she meets Roman Bellamy, but they mostly argue.

And weirdly, Marshall Van Herten keeps calling to talk to Ruqayyah. And Ira keeps answering. You’d think he’d take the hint.

And we leave the Qadir family there for the round. Ruqayyah and Ira have finally settled down, and are content with their girls.
