With the house finished Ruby and Castiel immediately moved in, as soon as they calmed down Angelo and Sunny that is. They promised them they would still come by to see them and that everything would be okay. And with that they headed to their own home!
I built this house from the ground up and it will be up on the gallery for download, there is no CC so anybody can use it! Also it says it was created by someone else and I think the reason it did that is because there was a house on this lot before that I had downloaded from the gallery and placed, but I promise you this was all me!
Castiel knew that with the growing popularity of his family name that there would be paparazzi trying to snap pictures of him at his new house, so he decided to invest in a high privacy wall.
He made sure the house had the best of everything but was still homey and not to over the top gaudy.
Once Castiel and Ruby moved into their new place they took it on themselves to go on a little honeymoon. So they both headed to the spa for some much needed R & R.
Oh and you know, the occasional woohoo in the sauna.
When they got home they cuddled up on the couch, popped in a movie, and ordered some pizza. The night couldn't get anymore better...right?
Wrong! Ruby had some very special news to give to Castiel.
Ruby: "Ohhh I hope he's as excited as I am!"
Ruby: Baby! We're gonna have a baby!
Castiel: What?! Are you plumming serious?! This is the best honeymoon ever!
Ruby giggled and walked over to the bed and plopped down. Castiel immediately pulled out his phone to call Stark and tell him Isabella will have a baby cousin soon. While the phone was ringing he started to rub Rubys already bulging belly.
Castiel: Hey Stark! Guess what? Ruby's pregnant!
Stark: Really? What a coincidence because Grace is pregnant again too!
Grace: *gags* Ugh...I think the morning sickness is already starting up again..
Even though he didn't want to, Castiel knew he had to call his brother and tell him he was going to be an Uncle. Plus Ruby wanted everyone to know she was going to have a baby, no matter if they cared or not. She already had taken about 10 baby bump pictures and uploaded them to Simbook.
Castiel: Hey bro, just wanted to let you know you're going to be an Uncle.
Damen had been working out and stopped to take his brothers call. When he heard him say that though, he had irritated him and stopped him from responding. Why was his brother so much better than him? Always mister goodie two shoes.
Damen: That's cool, but I'm getting married tomorrow. You guys are coming right?
Castiel: Yea of course we are. Talk to you later though, Ruby needs me.
And with that the other end of the phone line clicked off. The bad thing about Damen telling his brother that is that he hadn't exactly told Gretchen they were getting married tomorrow, or anyone else for that matter. He sighed and headed down to the study to try and reserve a spot at the church tomorrow for a wedding. Then he would have to go about explaining to Gretchen what was going on.
Damen: Ah plum.
The next morning, fairly early, Damen called Gretchen to the near by park to explain what was happening that day.
Gretchen: It's like 7am what the plum do you need me up this early for?
Damen: We're getting married today.
Gretchen burst out laughing and bent over, holding her sides.
Gretchen: You're kidding right?
Damen: Serious as a heart attack.
Gretchen: You do understand my stuff isn't completely packed up yet?
Damen: Already hired some movers, they should be over there by now.
Gretchen: DAMEN! You just can't let strangers touch my things!
Damen shook his hand in the air almost as if he was shooing away that statement.
Damen: Come to my house, I know my mom can have a seamstress over in 30 minutes with an already made dress, but we can alter it to your choosing.
Without another word Damen grabbed her hand and dragged her down the road back to the Estate.
In about 3 hours flat the entire wedding was planned. Sunny was rushing around the house like a busy bee while Gretchen's wedding dress was getting altered to her preferences. Sunny had to bake a cake, make a meal to take over to the church that would feed their whole family, then she had to go and rummage around in her jewelry box to find some earrings and a necklace for Gretchen to wear on her big day. So much to do! But as the matriarch of the family Sunny was no stranger to feeding a large family, she managed it like a pro. Half of the wedding party was able to fit into the families SUV and the other half was getting picked up by Stark and Grace. Little Isabella wanted to stay with her grandma and mom so she was among the first group to arrive at the church.
Gretchen: Damen where's my sister? She's going to be here right?
Damen sighed and furrowed his brow, he had been up all night trying to plan out this spontaneous wedding and anything was annoying him right now.
Damen: I don't know Gretchen. Why don't you go wait for-
He heard Gretchen squeal and turned just in time to see his bride to be hike up her dress and run to greet her sister, who had just arrived with the rest of the wedding party.
Gretchen: SIS! You made it! I'm so glad you could come, I was afraid you wouldn't.
Charlotte hugged her sister back firmly and laughed,
Charlotte: Me? Miss you getting married into the most prominent family in town? Not a chance!
Gretchen noticed the rest of her soon to be family was there and said hello, but as they were all walking into the church she linked arms with her sister. She was the girl that stuck by her even when they made a few mistakes in their old life. All that was over now because today was a new beginning.
With everyone in the dining area, as usual the family hung out and caught up on what was going on in each others lives.
Angelo: So good to see you Lucy. I'm really sorry about James.
Lucy: It's fine dear, his time had come. There's nothing we can do about that.
Isabella: Nana who is that man?
Lucy smiled up at Angelo and chuckled,
Lucy: To make it easy you can just call him Grandpa.
Angelo: I'm your Grandpas brother-in-law, which means I married his sister. I think it would be easy to just call me Grandpa though, like your Nana said.
Lucy and Angelo looked at Isabella and could tell that she was trying very hard to understand what he had just said. Isabella threw up her hands in defeat and huffed,
Isabella: Okay Grandpa, whatever you say!
Of course Castiel and Ruby were still all over each other, they couldn't get enough!
3 generations all in one room! Oh how I love the Belles.
Gretchen had been meaning to ask Charlotte something very important that had been weighing on her mind very heavily recently,
Gretchen: Hey Charlotte I don't mean to pry but are you and C ever gonna get married?
Charlotte blushed and smiled nervously up at Gretchen,
Charlotte: Well I'm not sure, but today's about you so how about we go watch you get married now!
Before Gretchen could press the matter further she saw everyone was headed into the other room and she new that her time had come.
It seemed like everyone wanted a piece of the spotlight today considering they are all funneling through under the archway. Most of you are married already, today is not your day!
The time had come for both of them to exchange their vows with each other. Even though it was an arranged marriage that had a contract attached to it, Gretchen still couldn't help but feel nervous. She didn't harbor any feelings of love towards Damen but why did she think he looked so darn good in that tuxedo? Gretchen had spaced out and didn't realize that Damen was done reciting his vows and it was her turn. Her faced turned bright red as she started to read off of the paper that she had brought. Neither one of their vows were heartfelt, honestly Damen had printed them both off of the internet after he had searched up "good wedding vows".
Then it was time for them to kiss, again. Gretchen was nervous since she knew what happened last time. Would it happen again? Before she could think more about it Damen had grabbed her by the lower back and brought her in for a kiss. There it was again! That spark happened, and when they both pulled away Gretchen knew he had felt it too. But Damens eyes went from having a curious and warm glint in them, to looking as cold as ice. For that split second that Gretchen saw another side of him, she got a warm feeling in the pit of her stomach.
After the vows had finished being exchanged the wedding party headed into the dining room again and Damen and Gretchen did the customary cutting of the cake.
Flustered for the second time today, Sunny was running around the dinning room kitchen trying to whip up some more food.
Sunny: Charlotte dear, where in the world did all that cake go?
Charlotte looked around confused and shrugged her shoulders,
Charlotte: I guess everyone got a piece.
Frustrated Sunny took a roast chicken off of the counter and shoved it into Charlottes arms, almost knocking her over.
Sunny: Do me a favor sweetheart and make sure everyone gets a plate of the chicken, I'll have the sides out in a minute.
When Sunny had walked back over to the stove she heard a warm chuckle behind her, when Charlotte turned she saw Angelo staring lovingly at Sunny.
Angelo: She's a bossy one isn't she?
Gretchen opened her mouth to respond but Sunny yelled over her,
Sunny: Just because I'm old doesn't mean I can't hear you Angelo!
Raising his hands in defeat Angelo started to carve the chicken into pieces and set them on plates. Charlotte realized while this whole exchange was going on that she was smiling. It felt good to be around people who cared so much about each other.
I managed to grab a picture that had almost all the living Belles and their counter parts in it! It looks like Charlotte is angry about something though..
Charlotte: I said I wanted a Dim and Gusty not a Juice on the Rocks!
C: Babe, calm down it's just a drink.
Charlotte: Just a drink?! I paid good simoleons for this!
Towards the end of the celebrations all the girls started to get tired and ended up falling asleep on the church pews. I guess the family shouldn't have midday weddings anymore!
With the wedding over and everyone safe and tucked into bed Sunny was feeling amazing. She had been able to see both her sons get married and now one of her daughter-in-laws are pregnant, she would be a grandma soon! It seemed the Grim Reaper didn't have the same plan as Sunny did because that night he was coming to take what was his.
When Angelo heard a loud thump it jolted him out of his sleep. He saw Sunnys side of the bed was messed up and the comforter was halfway pulled onto the floor. That's when he knew what was happening.
Angelo: Baby no! Don't leave me now, please. You're still young and beautiful this can't be happening!
In a puff of black smoke the Grim Reaper appeared and Angelo immediately started to plea with him.
Angelo: Please Grim Reaper, you can't take her away from me! She's the sunshine in my life! If I lose her my world will be dark again!
The Grim Reaper chuckled and turned his head to the side,
Grim Reaper: She would have lived longer if she had not saved her mother when she was younger. What the beautiful Sunny did not know is that when she did that, I took a chunk of her years away from her. I told her I would come back for her and just because you cry and plead does not mean I will change my mind!
Before Angelo could say anything else the Grim Reaper had already taken his precious Sunnys soul away and left an urn where her body had been. Gingerly he carried the urn to the dresser in their room and set it down. Angelo felt a sadness and pain in his heart he had never experienced before. His sunshine was gone and there was nothing he could do about it.
The next morning Gretchen and Damen were sitting in the kitchen and Gretchen had a giant smile plastered on her face. When Angelo came in and sat down she couldn't contain her joy much longer.
Gretchen: You and Sunny are gonna be grandparents twice over! Me and Damen are having a baby!
Angelo burst into tears and his whole body became wracked with sobs. Not expecting this outburst Damen and Gretchen looked at each other nervously but Gretchen knew that there was something else wrong. Sunny and Angelo always woke up at the same time, today she hadn't even seen her.
Gretchen: Hey...Angelo what's wrong? Did something happen?
Angelo barely paused his crying long enough to cry out,
Angelo: Sunny's gone!
