2.1

An ordinary night in the beautiful town of Sunset Valley. The lighthouse standing proud on a small isle guarding the tranquil see with it’s vibrant light. The night sky embracing the land with the stars sparkling with an ever elegant glow.

 

My name is Caitlin Alaska. Daughter of Well-known Author, Sharmaine Alaska and Athlete, Jeremy Alaska. I’m just your ordinary Young Adult starting out a life and trying to be independent. I have the most beautiful Sandy-colored hair you’ll ever see which sparkles when the sun shines on it. Fierce gray eyes and perfect skin tone. In short. I’m the most beautiful sim evah!Gosh, I guess I inherited mom’s brilliant use of words! I never knew I can be a poet! So anyway, I just move out from my parent’s house and moved in to an acquaintance’s house.

 

Her name is Julie Haynes. She has chocolate brown messy hair that I think flees are infesting it. Thick glasses that covers her ugly brown eyes and a horrible fashion sense. Don’t tell her I said that. Anyway, we just met hmm.. let’s see… 10 mins. ago? When Aunt Janelle called the local agency for a house needing a bed spacer and Julie was the only one available. She was just at the same age as I was so I agreed. She looked dorky in someway but I can live with that.

We exchanged formalities when we finally met.

“Hi! You must be Caitlin!”

“Duh! and I assume your Julia?”

“Julie!”

“Oh right! Listen, I don’t have the energy to talk right now. You got some extra bed in your place?”

“Sure I do! Come in! Make yourself at home!”

 

I went to the room next to Julie’s. As I was laying down the neatly made bed, I thought about my mom who is probably worried sick about me. She is still treating me like a little kid I hated it! But deep down I like it a bit because they were treating me like a princess until my teen years ended. I thought about my dad who inspires me alot on following my dreams. Then I thought about my brother. I can’t believe I left them already. A teardrop dropped from my eyes then I closed my eyes and fallen into a deep slumber.

 

I woke up feeling great because I had a very nice dream about my parents. After I got myself cleaned up I went into Julie’s room and I saw her in the computer. Her eyes were so focused on the screen and she didn’t even look at me when I greeted her.

“Good Morning Julia!” I greeted.

“It’s Julie!” she said, here eyes still focused on the screen.

“What are you doing deary? It’s a beautiful day out!”

“I’m on The Seems 3 forums! Haven’t you heard of it? I’m chatting with my internet friends at the moment”

“Huh..I think you need some Real friends Julie.”

“I do have real friends!”

“Oh yeah? What are their names?”

“Uh..Uh..You?”

“Me? We’re friends?Listen, I have an idea. We should go to the Dance Club near the stadium.”

“What for?”

“Oh, let’s just say I want to have some fun.”

 

That afternoon, we went to the Dance Club.

 

Julie entered the room with an uneasy look in her eyes.

“Why is it so dark here? The laser lights hurt my eyes too!” she complained.

“It’s  called fun darling. Loosen up a bit will ya?Here, have a drink hon.” I said as I handed her a drink I ordered.

 

“What is this catastrophic concoction? It’s sparkling! It’s not gonna explode is it?” She asked.

“Oh I don’t think It won’t”

She took a small sip and her head went back to me.

“Hey! Tastes great!” She said as she vacuumed up her drink.

 

I felt happy for her finally having fun away from the computer. As the speakers play techno music I claimed the dance floor as my own.

I shouted at Julie “Julie! Dance! C’mon!”

 

\

“Oh no thanks Caite! I’m enjoying already! I’ll just be here in the corner drinking this lovely juice” She said.

“Oh all right well, have fun!” I replied.

“Look! Caite! A handsome guy! Aren’t you looking for one!” She shouted.

“SHHHH!! Be Quiet!!” I angrily replied to Julie.

 

The man whom Julie pointed approached me who asked me If I wanted to dance with him. I accepted his request and gladly held his hand a broke the dance floor.

 

As we continued dancing. He whispered something on my ear. He whispered to me, “Jack Peppers. Adult. 26 North Valley Street. Woohoo for $100,000 ?” After he whispered his message to me he winked at me suggestively. I was absolutely disgusted. All the colors on me were pale. He approached me for a peck on the cheek but I slapped him and ran off.

 

Julie saw me running. She was on top of a table and dancing.

She said to me in a queasy and uneasy tone of voice. “Hey *burps* Where are you going Caite?” she burps again after pronouncing my name.

 

“Let’s get out of here Julie! There’s a pervert around here! I don’t go well with perverts!” I grabbed Julia’s arm and rushed to the exit. We called a cab immidietly before that horrible man can catch up to us.

 

“Sir floor it please! 19 Maywood Glenn please!”

“Well that was an unproductive night wasn’t it Julie?” I said to Julie but she was leaning on the window and snoring. I try to take off the horrible man in my mind by thinking about my mom and dad but the thought keep coming. Why is it haunting me so?

1.8

We’re finally back from our job trip from France. Yes, we’ve decided to extend for a bit. We’ve just arrived in time for Caitlin and Dustin’s birthday. Well, Dustin is still a day away but we wanted to celebrate the birthdays together.

 

 

When we arrived home, the first thing I saw was Janelle! She looks like she’s ready to burst out the house.

“You’re here! Great! So See ya!” She said. She really has messed up hair, eyebags and her glasses are crooked. Her clothes are messy, full of milk and barf and her eyes keep twitching.

“Hold on a moment Janelle! It’s Caitlin and Dustin’s birthday today! You should stay here for a while”.

“Caitlin’s birthday! Good Good! Cake!” When she heard Caitlin’s name I felt like she was a bit afraid. I’m not sure why.

 

 

I went to Caitlin’s room. It was a bit dark I don’t know why. She hurriedly gave me a big, tight hug.

“I miss you mommy! Auntie Janelle was a terror! She won’t let me eat Cake!” She said.

“Is that so? Let’s talk about that later hon! C’mon, where’s Dustin?” I asked.

“Oh he’s in his room being his own goofy self”.

 

I went to Dustin’s room and brought him out. I hugged him tightly and showed him his cake.

 

“Enough with the mushy stuff! Hurry up and blow the cake so I can get out of this horrible house!” Janelle said angrily.

“Just stay put Janelle! In the mean time just pretend to be happy! You don’t want to get Caitlin on your bad side” I said.

“Ugh! I know how it feels” She said and  rolled her eye. She stopped whining when she saw Caitlin.

 

Caitlin began staring at the cake in awe. She blew off her candles. By the time the last candle was blown I can now see that Caitlin is no longer the little princess that I always see…

 

 

She is now a little woman whose world just got a lot bigger. She rolled in the Workaholic trait.

 

By the time Caitlin grew into a teenager, Dustin, with his eyes glowing kissed me on the cheek and, with a little assistance by me, blew the candles off his birthday cake.

 

After Dustin blew his candle He grew up into a fine looking lad.

 

Dustin rolled in the Evil trait.

 

Now that all of our children can be independent in some ways I feel like I passed on a responsibility on someone.

 

 

But whom?

1.7

I recieved a call from my boss. He wants me to go to France and deliver a book and interview some of the locals. I always wanted to go to France but I have a problem. No one will take care of the kids! Jeremy will leave for France with me too and Dustin is still too young to come along.

I don’t want to call those pesky baby sitters because they don’t do their job well. So I called the only available person I know.

“Hello?”

“What do you want Shar?”

“Janelle! I need you to come. NOW!”

“What do you want Shar?” Janelle said.

“Come In Janelle”

When, Janelle came inside our house she sat on the couch not minding my husband. Caitlin sat beside me and glared harshly on Janelle before turning on the TV . There was an awkward silence at first.

But Janelle broke the silence.

“Why did you bring me here?”

“Whatever happen to Hi? Anyway, me and Jeremy are going to France for a month. I was wondering if you could stay here and watch the kids?”

“What?! Why me? Can’t you just hire a babysitter or something? When are you leaving anyway?”

“We’re leaving this evening Janelle! You can’t say no! Or I’ll tell mom you’re not capable of being a mother!”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

*JANELLE’S POINT OF VIEW*

 

 

The one thing you should know about me is that I absolutely dislike children! I don’t want to marry, I don’t want kids. I just want to commit myself to myself! There’s nothing wrong with that right? Or Am I just being selfish? Now that I was forced to take care of Shar’s kids for an undetermined time (She said she will be in France for a month but France is such a beautiful place I would be a fool not to take advantage of that opportunity) I now strongly agree with my beliefs.

 

That pesky little toddler keeps crying, I dunno what he wants I keep making him a bottle, changing his diaper. If I could only read his mind I think he will be like “I’m cold, I’m itchy, Where’s Mommy?” and all that crap. Caitlin on the other hand is very quiet. Or so I thought. I think she is silently judging me.

“Auntie Janine!” She called.

She pronounced my name wrong and I get pissed when someone dosen’t call my name right. I tried to talk sweetly to her.

“It’s Auntie Janelle sweetie. So what the hell do you want?!” I said. I know that came out wrong and I know I shouldn’t be swearing in front of a child.”

“How old are you Auntie Janelle?” She asked. I also don’t want people finding out about my age. They say age is just a number but I don’t believe those BS.

I replied to her by saying “Oh, I’ll tell you how old I am when you tell me yours m’kay?”.

“I’m 7, so how old are you?! 70?!”

I couldn’t reply with that. So I just naturally told her some random stuff like, “Oh look at the time! You should get yourself dinner hon!”

“Great Idea for a pea brain like yours Auntie! I want Cake!”

“Oh No No No! Your mom said you won’t have any cake til they return”.

 

Caitlin got out of her chair and approached me with those piercing grey eyes and her foot stomping.

“Hey look Lady, who do you think you are? I want cake you give me cake! That’s the way it works around here! Now I WANT CAKE! I WANT CAKE! Don’t make me call mom!” She said.

 

“Look just do whatever you want and don’t bother me again kid! Just go eat some crap from your garbage can alright?!”

 

“That’s what I want to hear ! Cuz’ I’m the Princess from this house! Call me Princess Caitlin okay!” She said as she dug her ungrateful mouth to that cake.

 

I went to check on Dustin and he was playing his toy xylophone. Kinda admit he was kinda cute. Makes me wonder if I should settle to and start a family. But all that changed when I heard that brat Caitlin calling for my assistance again so she can make my life easy as she so put it.
