Anderson – Round 18: ‘Gold Digger, Pt. 2′

Filed under: Anderson — Tags: , , , , , , — Mao @ 11:00 am

With Katarina gone, Alyssa is left with Nevio, Lacie, and little Isolde. Poor little Isolde, if it weren’t for Alyssa, she’d be neglected.. can her romance-oriented parents get their act together?

Lacie had mentioned several times how nice it would be to have a hottub, but Nevio was incredibly surprised when he came home one day to see contractors setting up a deck and hauling a huge jacuzzi. Alyssa said nothing, she just shook her head. Nevio was too shocked to speak.

He came around, though. The hottub was an extremely nice addition, even if it did mean he saw way more of Shang Yu than he ever wanted to. Shang had dropped by one day and told Katarina to pack her and James’ things, she was coming downtown with him. They saw more of Shang than they did of Katarina… and Nevio wasn’t quite sure he liked the looks that passed between him and Lacie.

Meanwhile, Alyssa was stuck caring for poor Isolde. She had become an adorable toddler and though she still resembled Jun Yu, Alyssa could now see that she looked quite a bit like Nevio, too. Alyssa loved spending time with Isolde, but worried that her parents had no part in her life. She’d have to kick Nevio into shape, she hadn’t raised her son to be a negligent father!

Of course, she’d have to fish both Nevio and Lacie out of the hottub, first. They spent the majority of their time out there, doing goodness only knows what. Alyssa was really sick of Lacie lazing around the house, doing absolutely nothing. She refused to get a job and she didn’t care for Isolde at all, except to complain to Alyssa that most rich people had nursemaids or nannies to care for their offspring.

Roman had planned on opening his real estate venture in Boreal Springs, but after some advice, decided to put it in Aperture. He gave the lot to Alyssa, suggesting she open a store and save up some funds so Lacie didn’t bleed them dry. Alyssa did more than that, she drug Lacie with her, putting her to work at the register. She was going to earn her keep if she wanted to stay and Alyssa would hear no more of this “don’t you want to move out” business!

(Shoppers viewed here are Aiyana Saunders and Tsung Yu)

Alyssa was happy when she finally got it through Nevio’s thick skull that his daughter needed him and that being an athletic didn’t mean he had to be a complete jerk. He didn’t dislike Isolde, quite the opposite, he just wasn’t sure what to do. Thanks to Alyssa and some help from Katarina, Nevio was slowly spending more and more time with his daughter.

Lacie eventually got out of working for Alyssa by claiming to be pregnant again. Alyssa had to hide her fury when she realized it was true. This woman having another child was just wrong. Alyssa wished her son could see what a little harpy he married, but he was oblivious. Anything she asked for, she got. Lacie had Nevio wrapped around her finger like one of the many platinum diamond bands she owned.

In fact, she even went as far as to suggest that perhaps a bigger ring would be better suited for her finger, given all the pain and tribulation she had to go through.

While Lacie was a vacuum of money and wealth, Isolde was the opposite. She was a happy and smiling child and being around her made Nevio feel considerably better about his life. He knew that perhaps Lacie was not the best choice, but even so, he loved her and that emotion often rendered even the most intelligent of beings foolish.

He just hoped Isolde didn’t take her mother’s bad example and act the same way.


Note from Mao: Poor Nevio, he’s such a patsy. And Shang really did refuse to leave when they got the hottub. He came over once with Katarina and Lacie started swooing over him. He kept trying to put the moves on Alyssa, but she’s over that now. Lacie and him are good friends now, though… and Isolde is ADORABLE. Srsly.


  1. Aww, Isolde is SO cute! GRR LACIE. Mao, I will await this plague with bated breath, she will be the first to go, y/y?

    I’m loving that you got your Community Lots back though, all these businesses ftw! ^__^

    She really is! Haha, Lacie… she’s, well, interesting. ;) Me too! I missed them so much.

  2. Shang just gravitates towards water, doesn’t he? In the last Saunders post, he was in the pool…now he is in the hot tub. Let’s hope he can enjoy the hot tub only and not enjoy some of Lacie while he’s at it. xD Isolde is soooo cute! She’s just precious. I’m glad Nevio is taking some responsibility. He’s a good boy, just a tad…stupid. And watching Lacie work fills me with glee.

    Haha, Shang likes the ladies and the ladies like Shang! He was actually in the hottub at the public pool. ;) Isolde is really pretty, I can’t wait until she grows up.

  3. Lacie deserves a good wake up call! Nevio should really dump her on her little diamond-studded tush out on the streets!

    She really does. I doubt that will happen, she has him wrapped around her finger.

  4. Lacie is really living up to her title. What a gold digger! Poor Isolde and Baby # 2! I’m glad to see that Nevio is starting to get into his role as father; hopefully the kids won’t suffer too much if Roman’s plans work out the way I hope they will…

    Hehe, she is, indeed. Shhh, Christina! I don’t know what you’re talking about… ;)

  5. Lacie looks truly miserable at the cash register. Hah. I love that picture.

    She really was! She kept complaining and running to the bathroom to puke.

  6. Aww, such a cute update. Yea for Alyssa for kicking Laci into shape, maybe Laci won’t survive the pregnancy. I know, I know…bad, but part of me wants Laci to be “taken care of” and the other part wants to see how far down she’ll drag Nevio. I love the shop btw-especially the flip flop stand, cute.

    Haha, Alyssa is trying. Lacie should survive it, I’m hoping for a male or at least a female heir with Anderson features! The flip-flop stand is an H&M storefront item.

  7. Aww! Isolde is a cutie! Poor Nevio, his wifes a butch. I think its funny how Shang came over and Lacie swood over him, all the Anderson women get all the Yu action!!

    Haha, those Anderson women really are a sucker for Shang…

  8. Aww, Isolde is SO CUTE. Man, I never thought during Alyssa’s teenage and college years that she’d be the only one in a household being responsible and taking care of otheres, haha. Nevio really needs to get it together. And Lacie makes me laugh…after all, if Nevio is such an easy mark, who could blame her for milking it for all it’s worth? She certainly doesn’t have much else to go on. ;)

    She really is! I know, Alyssa has really turned herself around, but she’s had a long life to think about things. Nevio is trying, but Lacie doesn’t make it easy. You’re right, she’s just taking advantage of the situation!

  9. Isolde is so cute. and Nevio gets what he deserves for not listening to his brother.

    This is true, on both accounts.

  10. Isolde is a cutie pie. The picture of Lacie at the cash register is priceless. LOL I am glad Alyssa talked some sense into Nevio about Isolde. Hopefully the new baby won’t have to suffer.

    Hehe, she’ll suffer more, don’t worry! The new baby should be find with Alyssa around.

  11. Oh, you have another business! I like it, now I want to open more businesses in my hood too. I just don’t like the loading times, so they’ll probably be home businesses.

    Isolde is really cute, surprising with a mother like that. Alyssa probably had a good influence on Isolde.

    I love businesses! I just wish I could have had them from the get-go, but at least they work now. Alyssa will make sure Isolde doesn’t stray down her mother or father’s path of life… hopefully.

  12. Go Alyssa, whipping these two into shape! I actually cheered for her and have hope for Nevio but Laci is another story. Suggesting a bigger ring and using pregnancy to get out of work…oh, this girl is priceless!

    Haha, she is definitely the only thing holding them together right now! Poor Isolde.

  13. FINALLY I kinda catch up. Isolde is quite adorable. Let’s just hope she inherited only her great-grandmother’s looks and not her penchant for causing chaos. Ahh, Nevio, Nevio. I’m only glad he’s heir instead of Roman because he’s assured to have his mother watching over him for a while yet. He needs it with the way Lacie spends. That shot with her at the counter is priceless. You’ve got me really LOL-ing, and at work! I hope the next one’s a boy.

    Haha, hey there, Fini! Welcome to the madness. Glad I’ve managed to make your work day a little better. ;) I hope its a boy, too, though the boys definitely outweight the girls this generation.

  14. LOL, Lacie is a riot! And Isolde is gorgeous!

    I am so happy with how Isolde turned out.
