So to start off with this chapter our Founder, Violet, deserves some serious praise! She maxed out her skills in cooking and gourmet cooking! Also she is almost done with her aspiration and is going to become a Master Chef! Applause for you Violet!
Violet: Thank you, thank you, I know I'm awesome. Now I can make all the best food!
After maxing out those skills Violet had some well earned time for herself. Recently Camilo had brought home a milk, honey, and oatmeal mix that was supposed to be used in the bathtub. So to reward herself she set up the soak mix in her brand new bathtub! She got to think about Liberty and her daughter, and just life in general. She couldn't believe how far she had come and how she now lived in a very nice house and could afford certain luxuries. She felt very proud of her family and couldn't be more proud of her children. Violet smiled to herself and sighed, enjoying how good life was, considering just a few years ago she was relying on her flowers to sustain her. Speaking of flowers, they were becoming something that helped pay the bills, they had evolved to become magnificent flowers and sold for a very pretty penny. She would have to remind herself that she needed to tell her kids to keep those alive.
In the other bathroom James and Sunny were having a secret meeting,
Sunny: So when are you going to make your move with Lucy?
James: Well I don't know! I want to take it slow but I think I might be taking it to slow and...ugh!
Sunny: You just need to take her on a date or something! You know I saw on TV once that this guy gave his girlfriend a giant chocolate freezer bunny! Get her one of those! If she's anything like me she would fall in love with you automatically!
James: Well that's because your a kid and you love sweet things.
Sunny: Hey! I'm just trying to help you out here bro!
James: Yea, yea, yea. I'll think of something, maybe go on Simterest and try and find some ideas.
Feeling very helpful and content Sunny decided to go outside and sit on her monkey bars and sing a song,
I am the best little sister
I give my big bro girly tips
I hope they get married
And have lots of babies
That way my best friend will be
My sisteeeeeer YEA~
While Sunny was outside singing her song Camilo was busy trying to get the scoop on what was going on with James,
Camilo: Hey kiddo! Whats up with you and Lucy?
James: What do you mean?
Camilo: Oh don't act like you don't know what I'm talking about, I've seen all those cute little pictures she's posted on your Simbook!
James: Dad how do you even know what Simbook is?! And why are you going through my page anyways?!
Camilo: Hey now! Just because I'm old doesn't mean I'm not hip with all the new social media.
James: For the love of the Creator..We're fine Dad! She just texted me actually and I think something is wrong..
Camilo: She's a teenage girl, she probably just woke up like that.
Later in the evening Violet called everyone into the kitchen to have dinner, everyone got to choose from tuna casserole, monte cristo sandwich and blackened bass. Just like she knew, everyone got something different. Except for Sunny of course, always being the daddy's girl she is, she got the exact same thing that Camilo got.
After dinner had been cleaned up Violet had to tell something to Camilo that she wasn't happy about discussing,
Violet: Cam, I need you to get everything ready for Sunny's birthday. I tried taking a vacation day but my boss said that I have to be there today. I'm so sorry baby! I made her a cake and everything I just need you to set up the party and make sure everything runs smoothly.
Camilo: What? Baby are you sure you can't take time off? This is Sunny's teenage birthday! She's gonna want to have her mother there.
Violet: I know sweetheart and I'll try and get off work early, I'm so sorry. I put a card together with the cake so remember to give that to her tonight too. I really appreciate this love.
Camilo: Okay...I love you so much and we'll be fine here, just focus on your work and be slightly passive aggressive to your boss!
When Violet left Camilo went outside with the cake and card, and lit the birthday candles. Then he put together some food on the buffet table for the guests.
Then he called over everyone! Liberty and her daughter came because they were family friends, and again Travis, Liberty's husband, could not make it because of work. So to get everyone's mind off of who wasn't there they decided to play cards!
Camilo: HEY, no cheating James!!
James: I have noooo idea what you're talking about Dad!
Sunny: Daddy what's cheating?
Liberty: It's something you do when you aren't good at something.
Lucy: Ohhhh Mom's laying the smack talk doooown!
James: By the way Lucy what did you get on the Simlish 111 test?
Lucy: An A+.
James: WHAT. HOW?
Lucy: I read the story it was on?
James: Do you think you could tutor me?
Lucy: I guess I could, but James you have to remember that I have the genius trait so it's a little easier for me.
James: Well you may be a genius but I'm better at cards!
Lucy: Not if you keep flashing your hand at everyone...
Everyone sat down for dinner and Sunny decided to talk to Liberty,
Sunny: Mrs. Liberty why is your hair gray?
Liberty: Because I got older sweetie.
Sunny: But why did you get older?
Liberty: Because everyone gets old.
Sunny: You mean I'M gonna get old and gray?!
Liberty: Well yes..
Sunny: Ugh gross! I don't want to get saggy and stuff!
Liberty couldn't help but laugh and almost choke on her food,
Liberty: Well welcome to the club little one!
Before the party was over, of course you have to let the birthday girl blow out the candles! Before she could Camilo reminded her to read the note Violet left for her,
You are the sunshine of my life and I'm so sorry I can't be there for you right now!
Mommy loves you so very much and I couldn't have asked for a more bubbly and wonderful daughter!
I have a special surprise for you tomorrow and just remember to have a wonderful day, birthday girl!
Sunny: Holy crap! I grew up H-O-T!
Sunny wasted no time in changing her clothes, she saw an outfit in a fashion magazine that she absolutely wanted so that's what she got! She gained the creative trait but the aspiration for public enemy! Sunny was not happy about this and knew that it would not gain her any favor in the community and she didn't want people to not like her! So she was going to ask her mother what she could change it to.
After changing Sunny went out back to the party and started chatting with Lucy,
Lucy: Holy crap you look hot!
Sunny: I know right! Now we're both stunners!
Lucy: You know you actually look a lot like your mom?
Sunny: You know I thought so too when I looked in the mirror. It's kinda weird huh?
Lucy: Totally, but I look like my mom too but have my dads hair color so it's whatever I guess.
Look who arrived late to the party but finally made it!
Sunny: Momma you made it!
Violet: I know! I was so lucky that my boss let me get off work early!
Sunny: Oh I'm so happy now we can celebrate your birthday too! I didn't forget you know!
Violet: Ohhh that's so sweet hunny, thank you so much!
Violet: Well I guess here goes nothing...my birthday wish is that my family stays profitable and all my grandchildren will live wonderful lives!
Violet: Ugh! That is one nasty crick in my back.
The next day James got up early to talk to his father about something that had been bugging him,
James: Dad when are you going to tell Sunny about the legacy?
Camilo: I'm not going to tell her, your mom is.
James: Well then what?
Camilo: Your mom has figured that out and has decided to tell both of you very soon.
With breakfast served and Sunny finally up, Violet could tell her what the surprise was,
Violet: So Sunny do you wanna know what your surprise is?
Sunny: Yes of course I do!
Violet: Okay well, there is a new spa that has opened up in town and that's where we're going!
Sunny: OMG no way!! I'm so excited!!! Thank you Momma, thank you!
While everyone was getting ready for their day Violet and Camilo decided to sit down and talk about the future,
Camilo: You know I never got a chance to tell you but you still look fine as mess even though you aged.
Violet: Always the charmer I see! But thank you sweetie, I wanted to talk to you about the children.
Camilo: Okay, are you going to tell Sunny today?
Violet: Yes I am but I wanted to tell you that how the heir is going to be chosen is they have to give a speech about why they should be chosen and they must include their aspiration and traits so far. I want the heir to be chosen before their young adult birthday that way they can learn what needs to be done before we pass on.
Camilo: That sounds fine by to me baby, but what about Sunny? She got the public enemy aspiration!
Violet: I know and I'm going to send a letter for it to get changed, her traits just do not match up with that kind of aspiration!
Violet sent in the letter for Sunnys aspiration to get changed and decided to tell her,
Violet: Sunny baby, I sent in a letter for your aspiration to get changed!
Sunny: Oh really Momma! That's great, I just don't feel comfortable with that kind of aspiration at all.
Violet: I know you don't that's why I did that. Are you ready to go to the spa?
Sunny: I was born ready!
When they got to spa the first thing they wanted to try out was yoga.
Sunny: Ugh my butt is being shown to the whole WORLD right now, I better not catch anyone staring at it!
Violet: This is actually pretty relaxing...
Sunny: I think my muscles just tore in my thigh!
Time for some nice hand and feet massages!
Violet: Wow that felt so good I think I'm falling asleep...
Sunny: OW. Great Creator man! Chill out on the popping!
After that rather "relaxing" hand massage Sunny decided to take a nice relaxing mud bath,
Sunny: I wonder what Mom is doing right now...
Masseuse: Yes I understand how that feels, getting old sucks.
Violet: *aggravated mumbles*
Masseuse: Oh sorry ma'm, didn't mean to offend!
Violet: Whew, that felt good! How you doing over there sweetie?
Violet: GAH, I think this women wants to break my back!
After all the pain...er I mean relaxing Violet sat down Sunny and prepared to give her the speech about the legacy,
Violet: Okay sweetie it's time you learn about the legacy you're apart of.
Sunny: What about it Momma? I already know we're kinda famous.
Violet: Yes but did you know you could possibly be heir?
Sunny: WHAT, for real?! I thought it was usually the first born for most legacies?!
Violet: Well it is, but I wanted my legacy heirs to have a choice in the matter.
Sunny: Okay so teach me all there is to know!
Violet: Well first off you may not move off the lot, you may never demolish the house you can only add on to it. You must memorialize me and your dad in some way, just like your children will have to. You must have a child, unfortunately there can be no adopted children. What else...OH! The flowers! Those flowers can pay for the house by themselves right now, keep those alive! They are very important and when you fall on hard times you can always rely on those!
Sunny: That's a lot of rules Momma...
Violet: I know sugar, but if you want to become heir you must write a speech on why you should be the next heir.
Sunny: Does James have to write one too?
Violet: Well of course! Now let's head home, you look tired and I'll let you process everything I just told you.
That same night Camilo came to talk to his wife about the spa trip,
Camilo: How did everything go V? Did she take it well?
Violet: Well the yoga was okay, she really didn't like the hand massage and back massage though!
Camilo: Not that you silly! About the legacy!
Violet: She took it well enough, I think she's working on her speech right now. I already told James the same thing and I think he's working on his also. I'm going to be submitting them to town hall when they are finished up.
A couple days later James and Sunny were eating dinner together, the speeches had been sent in yesterday and were being plastered all over town,
James: Hey Sunny can I tell you something?
Sunny: Sure bro, what is it?
James: No matter who wins, promise me that we'll take care of each other no matter what?
Sunny: Well duh! There's no question about it! We're blood big brother, we always will be.
James: Alright...hey I know I don't say this enough but, I love ya sis.
Sunny: Love you too! Wait..do you hear someone at the door? Woah! They are banging really hard! It must be seriously important!
Lucy: James open up!
This is where I will leave you folks! Thank you so much for reading!
