B.S.U. Campus – Round 16: ‘Heir Trouble, End’

Filed under: B.S.U. Campus — Tags: , , , , , , , — Mao @ 2:18 pm

Roman Anderson is trying to keep his family name from dropping below its faculties, but his twin, Nevio, isn’t helping any.  To make matters worse, Laci’s plan seems to have worked.

Laci did her best to hide her happiness.  Her plan had worked, not that she had ever doubted herself for a single second.  Nevio didn’t have the same intelligence or cautious nature his brother did and so it was only a matter of time before all their fooling around got them into trouble.  Laci had him right where she wanted him, that money would be hers.

“Are you sure?” Nevio replied, shocked.  His face was nearly as white as his shirt.

“Yes, of course.  I even took two tests and I’ve already scheduled the visit.”

Nevio swallowed, unable to think of a fitting response.  This was not good at all.

As any son would do in a situation like this, Nevio phoned his mother immediately.  Alyssa made the drive as soon as she was able and met with her very anxious son.  She knew what her father, Thomas, would do in this situation… but Alyssa wasn’t Thomas.  She sighed and with a heavy heart, said:

“She can’t stay here, Nevio.  College is no place for a pregnant girl.  She’ll come home with me and then you’ll marry as soon as you finish the accelerated program they offer.  You’re a senior, it won’t be that difficult.”

“B-But, mom–”

“No buts, Nevio.  You can’t just cast her out on the street.  You have to make this right…”

“This is preposterous, mother!” Roman raged, unable to contain himself.  “You’re giving Laci exactly what she wants, she wants the money!  That’s the only reason she allowed herself to get knocked up in the first place.  That lustful skank will bleed you dry!”

“Roman Anderson!” Alyssa scolded, arms folded over her chest.  “I did not raise you to speak like that.  Regardless as to what Laci is or is not, it no longer matters.  She’s now carrying my grandchild.  I will do what I must to ensure that poor thing’s future.  Surely you can understand…”

“No, I can’t,” Roman snapped, turning away from her.  “You’re making a mistake, mother, a very big mistake.  You’ll lose everything.”

Despite Roman’s protests, Alyssa and Nevio went through the motions.  Nevio proposed and Laci was suitably pleased.  She packed up all her belongings and put them in the car with Alyssa.  She had no qualms about quitting University.  It wasn’t like she’d actually need an education–Laci didn’t even plan to work.  There was absolutely no reason to!

Alyssa knew that Roman was right, but she couldn’t bring herself to cast the baby aside.  If anything, it could be saved.

Roman, fueled by his anger, bought a community lot within Boreal Springs and opened it to the public.  It was the end of his senior year and he had plenty of time to devote to it.  With his careful management and financial savvy, it climbed the ranks.  The once lowly general store was now a pivotal business within the small suburb.  Even Mary O`Hanlon came by to congratulate him on his endeavor

A reviewer from Aperture stopped by and was pleased enough to give Roman an award for service and reliability.  Of course, Shang Yu was passing by at the time and more than happy to give his two cents.

“Congrats, dude, and hey, she’s hot!”

Roman rolled his eyes and accepted the award.  He was sure to hang it over the door so that everyone who entered would see it.

With his business ventures begun, it was time for the next thing on his list.  He had kept in contact with Cara Nanale and they had built a relationship, though hardly to the extent of his brother’s.  He proposed to her with the intent of marrying her as soon as the house he had bought was built enough to be a suitable home to the two of them.  Cara was beyond overwhelmed, but certainly happy.  She’d be off the islands and Roman seemed to be very kind and respectful.  Not once had he tried to cross any lines and Cara could wear a white dress with pride.

Of course, she had no idea that Roman was simply protecting his own interests in doing so.  There would be no bastard children to take his wealth, that much was certain.

Note from Mao: Laci’s pregnancy threw me for a loop!  Never have I had YAs get pregnant so easily.  Yikes.  I think I fixed my community lots, which is good.  I really missed having them!!  Roman’s business is almost rank 10 already, haha.  As for Cara, he had a want to get engaged, but never rolled any woohoo wants.  Fortune sims, haha, what are you gonna do?

  1. lol-great update…maybe Gordon can make a Tracy/Lauren happen to Laci and “poof” everything is fixed. It makes sense that Nevio would get himself in a situation like this, I’m actually very excited to see what Laci has in store-she’s so evil!

    Thanks! As for Gordon getting involved, only time will tell. ;) Nevio certainly brought it on himself. I pity the baby!

  2. That little skank, trapping Nevio like that. Oh well, he was asking for it. That’s what you get for not listening to your brother. Oh, Shang xD You never cease to amuse me. Srsly, the look he has is awesome. I feel I am gonna like Cara, she seems so nice and sweet. But not sure if Roman is the one for her…we’ll see, huh?

    Indeed! But Nevio was dumb enough to fall for it. Shang is such a card, lol. I do like Cara, but we’ll see how well she adapts to the neighborhood and Roman’s ambitions.

  3. Yay first to comment! :o D Has anyone thought of a prenup??? That’d show Lacy for sure! he he then after the babies born have some unfortunate satelite end it all….too evil? I don’t care what Roman says about why he doesn’t want to woohoo, he’s being a gentleman and that should be honored!

    Given the Anderson wealth, I’m sure Alyssa made sure there was a prenup. Thus how her divorce didn’t end badly for her. ;) Roman isn’t all gentleman, that much we will soon see…

  4. Laci better watch herself.

    Hehe, yes, she had better. Roman isn’t quite done yet.

  5. Yay Community Lots! I’m glad for you Mao, they are a really, really wonderful way to make obscene amounts of money. ^__^

    Laci is a fresh h0r, I hope Roman’s plans involve pushing her down some stairs…

    I just really enjoy playing them. They give my hood a chance to come together and make their own friendships/etc! Haha, you and Roman think alike. :P

  6. Yay for community lots! Wow almost level 10 already? Go Roman!
    But I am wondering how you give townies/NPCs a makeover and remove their defaults? You mentioned it last time you played university.

    Cara’s face/etc are all the same, all I changed were the values that define her skintone and eye color. You can do it with SimPE if you know the values. I just got the values off another sim.

  7. Shang’s comment on the woman from the newspaper made me smile. I’m glad Roman is becoming independently wealthy, but your comment replies are making me feel suddenly wary. Arg! What is he up to…?
    And, hey! For all of Laci’s bad points, at least the drama she generates will be really fun to watch (and hopefully, for you, fun to play. :D )

    Haha! Roman has his own plans, that much is certain. I’ve played nearly halfway through round 17 already, so I have an idea as to what awaits. ;) Lacie is definitely a lot of fun.

  8. I vote for a plague to hit the Anderson house… I believe you already know my preference for victim/s. :D

    Also, Shang = hilarious!

    Hahaha! And yes, Shang always brings the funny. ;)

  9. I can’t wait to see what Roman does about this…ooh. I like him – all the better for all his ambition, I must say.
    Oh, Laci, that gold-digging ho. But Nevio ought to have known better, that’s for sure.

    Haha, me either. I’m sure he’s got something juicy planned!
