Davis – Round 16: ‘Dearly Departed, End’

Filed under: Davis,Saunders — Tags: , , , , , , , — Mao @ 10:09 am

Tracey’s declaration that Gordon was a monster unable to deal with children was very wrong. He loved his children dearly and made every effort for Michael to adjust well to his new surroundings. Michael was fascinated by his baby brother, who seemed to resemble their father more than he did. Never once was Michael ostracized or made to feel badly. Tracey was never mentioned in conversations with him, not by Gordon or Lauren, meaning she was never put down. It was a little odd, but truly, Gordon had no concern for Tracey anymore. His concern had always been with Michael, Tracey was just attached baggage.

Elena was happy, as well. She had been a little apprehensive at first, but she was glad to have what she saw as a happy family. All the necessary parts were there and there was definitely enough attention to go around. She enjoyed her new baby brother and she even had a lot of fun with Michael, too, even if he was a little too quiet for her tastes.

Just as she said she would, Lilith delivered on her end of the deal. She phoned Gordon immediately and they met that evening in his basement. She brought a most peculiar guest with her, who moved dramatically about the room like a lost spectre.

“All right, this is it,” Lilith began, unable to hide her excitement. “I can stay, right? If I’m going to monitor you, Gordon, I have to see everything.”

“Yes, you can stay.” He said, sending a sidelong glance at the strange woman. “Do you know what will happen for sure?”

“No, not completely, but it’s safe. I mean, what could go wrong, right?” Lilith smiled reassuringly, getting into position. “Ready?”

Gordon nodded, “you know, I haven’t said thank you yet–”

“Say it later, Gordon. Right now, it’s business time.”

Lauren was saddened by the fact that Gordon missed Claude’s birthday. She knew he said he’d be out on business for a few weeks, but she had hoped he’d make it back in time to see Claude become a toddler. He looked exactly like Gordon when he was that age, the only difference being their eye color.

She also hoped Gordon would come back soon because of Michael. He’d been acting so strange lately, talking about hearing things in the night and saying he saw something moving around in the basement. Poor child, he probably just missed his father.

Elena also had her birthday. She wasn’t upset that Gordon had missed it. He always got her fantastic gifts and she was sure he had something especially fantastic for her transition into teenagerhood. In the meantime, she made it her goal to cheer Michael up. She spent a lot of time with him, but no matter what, he kept saying the same thing.

It wasn’t until Elena glimpsed at the figure for herself that she believed him.


Note from Mao: House swapping, woo. This house is now Saunders 2, as you know from the last entry. Anyway, not too much to say here. Michael and Elena get along very well, he’s even good friends with Lauren. Poor Tracey!


  1. Ohh, I wonder what’s going on down in the basement? ;)

    I’m glad to hear that Michael and Elena are adjusting well to the change in their families, but poor Tracey. I hope she can have a decent relationship with Michael when he’s older.

    Haha, I think you already know. As for Tracey, only time will tell. ;)

  2. Hmmm something tells me that Gordon has gotten himself turned into a vampire. Is that what Michael and Elena is seeing/hearing?

    Haha, you may be onto something there…

  3. Yeah, that’s rough for Tracey…I wonder what Lilith and Gordon are up to now. Oh, what a tangled web you do weave, Mao!

    I know and I get tangled up in it quite often. x_x

  4. Ooo what could the figure be?…Gordon please don’t mess with the timespace continuum, the portal between life and death, the fountain of youth, and/or especially the supernatural. All things I’m sure you’d like to mess with…but still.

    Hahaha, I think it is a little too late for warnings. ;)

  5. Oh and Mao how do you make the family trees at the top of each entry??

    I use SimPE to extract the profile pictures and then just add text/etc.

  6. So it would seem some of Gordon’s peoples are wanderin’, eh? Methinks he may be losing controoool. Who knows? I love how he is all not enthusiastic about getting remarried. xD Lilith, dear Lilith…she’s getting in too deep. I feel sorry for her family if something were to go wrong D: I love them Yu folk. It’s good to know Gordon is a good dad, though. Man, Elena and Sara are frickin’ twins, I swear…The basement is where all the fun happens, ne?

    Hahaha, it’s always a party in the basement! Woo! Gordon’s people will realize that wandering will get them killed, heh heh. Lilith is playing it safe, she has no dealings in Gordon’s criminal workings. Tsung, however, does, given that he’s built several structures for Gordon.

  7. I can’t help but wonder what Lilith and Gordon are doing with the Countess… What does a Criminal want with a Vampire?

    Claude is adorable, why are Gordon’s genes so strong?!

    Because they are awesome genes. I loved Janine’s looks and I’m glad they’re spreading. :D As for what a criminal like Gordon wants with a vampire… hehe…

  8. Hmmm… does Gordon want to be a vampire??? That should turn interesting :) .

    I’m hapy that Gordon has strong genes. Spread among the neighbourhood, genes!

    Hahaha, I agree!

  9. Tracey was so easily replaced :( Gordon and Lillith plotting together scares me, drag the Countess in and now a wandering figure and I’m terrified for the residents :o

    Not completely, Michael still knows who his mum is. He’s run into her on a few community lots. :) Be afraid, be very afraid!
