Sunny had just finished her evening workout when her notification ringtone went off on her phone. She sat down to relax and see who it was from. As she scrolled through the other notifications from Simbook and Simtube she noticed she had a new email. She opened it up and realized it was from Damen and Castiel's Simlish teacher. It read,
This is Mrs.Doris from your sons Simlish class. We had an assignment for the class that dealt with them writing a short essay about their family. I told them to not hold back and show their true feelings. What they didn't know is I was going to be sending the finished essay to their parents. The attachment enclosed should have both your sons essays.
Ms. Doris E. Pepper
Sunny grimaced and hesitantly held her finger over the download button. She didn't want to read something that would make her upset but she did know that she wanted to see what her boys thought of the family. She pressed the button.
My name is Damen Belle. You have more than likely heard of my family because we are a legacy. Yea I guess my grandma was crazy enough to start that. I shouldn't really be talking bad about her although I've never met her, but whatever. I'm the son of the second generation heir, Sunny Belle and her husband Angelo Diamond. My dad was the son of a star football player that retired, and died, in the town of Starlight Shores. My mom on the other hand grew up relatively poor, living off of my grandpas paintings and the money my grandma made from the restaurant. She didn't know that they actually had more than they were letting on, because when they both died my mom was left with close to 80,000 simoleons! Why were they holding out man?! So my mom took on the project of building the semi cool mansion that we live in today, then she got married and had me. It was all well and good but then my goodie two shoes little brother came around. He was the perfect little angel, ugh. When he came around is when I really started to not like my family. We lived in a pretty big house but we shared it with my Uncle and his family. They had two kids, Stark and Charlotte. Stark is pretty cool but still lame, Charlotte is just annoying. I've never liked her. Anyways back to why I DON'T like my family. My dad is an athlete and desperately wants me or my brother to be one too, and my mom loves to cook and works at the restaurant my grandma use to work at. Sounds pretty normal right? WRONG. It SUCKS to be apart of a legacy. Everyone is always looking at you to make sure you don't do something wrong, and don't even get me started on the paparazzi. I just want a normal life, with a normal family. I don't even want to be heir, and I swear to the Creator if I am chosen I will move off that lot and forcefully give the heir ship to my brother. I've had thoughts about running away all the time, maybe to a different neighborhood or heck even to a different world! It's whatever though because the job I want, to be a criminal, is going to take me all over the world! So see you later family! As soon as I turn 18 I am OUT.
Sunny sighed and shook her head. She wasn't expecting much different from Damen. He had been so mean lately that she couldn't even control him. She remembered what she had said in her speech and knew that she was going to let her sons do whatever they wanted as a career. Although being a criminal wasn't ideal. She clicked the next download and it popped open on her screen.
My name is Castiel Belle, son of Sunny and Angelo Belle. I am part of a legacy that was started by my grandma Violet Belle. From what my mom said she was a great mom and wife. She had some trouble getting pregnant though and I remember my mom telling me the story of when my grandma almost had a mental breakdown because she thought she couldn't keep the legacy she JUST started going. I wish I could have met my grandma and grandpa I bet they would have had awesome stories to tell. Growing up I learned that I had a love for chess and science, I'm not exactly sure what I'm going to do with that when I grow up but we'll see where it takes me! Anyways, I grew up in a full household. My Uncle lived there with his wife and their two kids, Stark and Charlotte. I love both of my cousins but man is Stark a handful sometimes. He acts like such a bro, even though he isn't, and Charlotte is very quiet. I sometimes forget what she sounds like because she doesn't talk that often. I think it might have been from the constant bullying that my brother, Damen, and my cousin Stark did to her. That is actually how the rift between our two families started. My Uncle James was getting very mad at Damen because my mom couldn't control him, or didn't want to, and my Uncle decided to take it into his own hands. Things didn't pan out very well for them because my Uncle has a temper. One thing led to another and now our families are split apart. Of course we still have contact with each other, maybe not my mom and my Uncle, but me my cousins and my aunt all do. It's nice because they all come over every once in a while but I wish my Uncle and mom would reconcile. I just want everyone to be nice to each other and I want Damen to stop being so mean and realize that people care about him. Maybe that will happen in another lifetime, but surely not mine.
After reading both her sons essays Sunny flung her phone on the sofa and tried to get her heart to stop hurting. She didn't want her children to feel the way they did, why couldn't a mothers love fix everything?
Lucy was enjoying her new tablet when she was scrolling through her new emails and realized she had one from Charlotte and Starks Simlish teacher. Curious she opened it up and immediately downloaded the attachment, who has time to read some email that was probably sent out the same way to all the other parents?
Okay I'm gonna make this short and sweet. My name is Stark Belle and I come from a legacy. Well a branch of a legacy, my dad was a spare and him and my mom were high school sweethearts. As soon as they got old enough they got married and out popped me. I don't know anything about our family history because I hate history in school so why would I want to know about it at home? Lame! My family is pretty cool, my Aunt and dad don't talk though but I still get to go over to my aunts sweet pad! A little about my self is a love to workout and try and get with hot girls!
Lucy laughed out loud, she knew that Stark would be the one to totally skimp on the whole essay part and just write a paragraph. She really needed to get on him about doing his homework completely. Also she knew that she had to talk about woohoo with him soon or a later. Lucy cringed at the thought. Then she realized that her tablet had downloaded two files so she clicked on the next one.
My name is Charlotte Belle. My moms name is Lucy Lee and my dads name is James Belle. They were high school sweethearts and my grandma, on my moms side, was my grandma, on my dads side, best friend! So I'm guessing that's how they met. Right now though there is some bad problem going on in my family. My parents act like they're okay but I know they aren't. When they say they're going to go out to eat I know they're going to couples therapy. I'm not a naive little girl anymore. When they go though that means I get to go over to my Aunts house and hang out with my cousins. Well mainly Castiel, because Damen hates me. I know hate is a strong word but that's what he said to my face! I'm not exactly sure what I did to him to cause him to feel that way though. Anyways, I like hanging out with Castiel the most because he understands I don't like to talk, so we can sit there and watch a movie and not even talk to each other. He's the best. My brother on the other hand is a complete bro, at least he wants to be. All he talks about is girls and working out, ew. Enough about my family though, a little bit about myself is that I love the color blue, I love to paint, and I adore classical music.
Before Lucy could respond to the email and thank the teacher for sending it to her she heard Charlotte call her name. Charlotte was trying to make dinner and Lucy guessed she probably did something wrong and needed help now. The entire way to the kitchen she was smiling to herself, she had such great kids.
