As I explained earlier, all isbi saves have become inaccessibles, so we start almost from scratch. My computer suffered some problems and I had to send it to be fixed. Unfortunately I've lost many things and not just saves from the games. I lost many backups of my work (I am an accountant) that I keep in this pc. Luckily the originals are safe on the laptop but doing all the backups again ... my head hurts just thinking about it.
Oh yes, sorry for rambling. The important thing is that I usually saves to the bin of all my sims, including spouses and spares. So the story can continue without problems.
"Watcher, there's something that is not quite right here."
Well, yes, sadly you and Emma are in a blank slate situation without skills and careers. Sorry, but nothing can be done about it.
"Thats not exactly..."
And Leonardo is again at the start of his age so you have to teach him the skills again.
"Watcher, I don't think that's what my husband wants to talk about."
Yes, the house is a little smaller than what you had but it covers all the necessities.
"You are doing it on purpose, right?"
"I think what Julian wants to know is who is the little person next to us."
Oh, that's Frida, your daughter.
Yes, do you remember how in the previous chapter we learned that Emma was pregnant again? Well, she's the result.
"Yes... but my wife was barely showing..."
In the chapter yes, but the game was a couple of days ahead, just enough to make the birth of Frida a reality. I have screenshots to prove it!
Unfortunately, the last photo shows that there was an unexpected call to the babysitter so we lost 5 points. I will count all the points I had so far, since I decided to take this new save as a continuation of the previous one.
"So what you're telling me is that I have two toddlers to take care of."
Yes, because she was already part of the family and not adding her seemed wrong to me.
"It's okay, honey. At least we are saved from being awakened at any time by a baby. There are already two children in the first generation like the watcher wanted."
"And the fact that you don't need to get pregnant in this save has nothing to do with your acceptance of this situation, right?"
"Of course not, love."
Great Emma! Because I was thinking of adding one more child to make up for the fact that we started with two toddlers.
Don't be that way, you just said that you didn't care. Now, take your only action that I can control and go to look for work at the bistro.
Emma left murmuring something about watchers but I really didn't hear her well.
Yes, my beautiful wonderful founder?
"You're doing this on purpose."
So Emma is now in the culinary career, from scratch, without experience and skill. Sigh.
Then she went on to the productive task of surfing the internet for a couple of hours.
Keep playing with her phone one o two hours more...
To end up spending the little money we have on an unnecessary meal.
"I have to verify that the place where I will work is up to my skills."
"And even more important, to show the readers the fantastic wedding dress that I never got to use because you had the idea of directing Julian to marry us in the kitchen with my work clothes."
Okaaaay, in my defense, you still weren't part of this legacy.
"Oh I'm well aware of that."
Then she decided to celebrate the presence of Bradan McGrath. I was as perplexed as him, let me tell you.
Bradan, in a total uncharacteristic move of his part, was nice to Emma. How odd.
After losing more than half a day in nothing important, Emma decided to go home.
That's where I got really happy, here is my girl preparing to go home and take charge of this challenge. How naive of me.
She went directly to the toy box to celebrate that we have one and then she stayed the rest of the night watching the ROMANTIC! channel.
Why, Emma, whyyyy???? Have I lost my dear ally?
"Don't be melodramatic, please. Now, hush, this is an important moment in the movie."
So with a broken heart (I'm not melodramatic), I went to see how my beloved founder's day went.
"It was much more productive than Emma's." He told me in all seriousness.
First he painted until he reached the first level in the skill.
"So I can register as self-employed painter."
He began his children's training.
"Dad... Is this necessary? You already taught me all these things, this is only awkward."
"Technically not, honey bear. This is a new save."
"But couldn't we avoid it? I'm going to have random traits anyway."
"No, teaching you gives me lots of happiness points, or so the watcher says."
And technically you shouldn't talk, little Leo, your father didn't teach you yet.
"And do you know what else could you technically do?"
Oh, so sorry, Leo, I don't understand you. You don't know how to speak yet.
Better keep seeing what else Julian did today.
Unfortunately he had to cook, because the person who do that for a living was watching the ROMANTIC channel.
"I also put the children to bed before going to register as a painter."
"So, it was a very productive day, if I say so myself."
This is the moment when I really started to get scared by this. Were the personalities of my founder and his wife changed the move to the new game? Well, if you want to know, do not miss the next chapter.
"And she says she isn't melodramatic."
Babies: 2 = 10 (I'm counting Frida no matter what, I lived her baby stage age completely).
Babysitter's visit: 1 = -5
Total points = 5
