Yu 2 – Round 18: ‘Moving On, Pt. 3′

Filed under: Yu — Tags: , , , , , , — Mao @ 8:46 am

Ryu and Tracey have come a long way, leaving their former spouses behind.  With their hectic work schedules, can they ensure that the twins, Marcus and Shelly, make it to childhood?

Even after so long, Ryu was the primary caregiver.  It was quite the role reversal, as Alyssa had taken care of most of the ‘rearing’ as far as children were concerned before.  Now it was up to him.  It wasn’t particularly hard and his increasing age gave him more and more patience.

It was hard to be patient with certain things, though, like Katarina.  She held no grudges at all and would visit now and again.  She was shacked up with Shang and Ryu wasn’t quite sure how he felt about that.  He still couldn’t imagine her as a mother, though Alyssa had said she was doing surprisingly well.

Katarina only visited during the afternoon and evening, while Tracey was off at work.  She had no problem with her new siblings, but she really didn’t care to meet Tracey.

The twins’ birthday came and went, and despite being children, old habits die hard.  They still spent a lot of time at the little drawing table, having competitions as to who could ‘draw better’.  Neither one came out on top of the other, Ryu wasn’t sure if his creativity had passed on to either of them.

They saw their mother late in the evening, when they usually had dinner.  She always made sure to inquire about their day, school, and everything that would happen while she was away.  It wasn’t easy leaving them behind and going to work, but she was nearly at the top and it wouldn’t be much longer until she needn’t worry about it any longer.

Of course, by then, they’d be teens caring for themselves, but sims don’t usually plan that far ahead…

Despite Tracey being gone a lot, life was good for the twins.  Of course, not everyone was kind about it.  Timothy and Marcus were friends, but Timothy always gave poor Shelly such a hard time.  Kids would be kids and what goes on in their mind when they tease girls is always the same…


Note from Mao: Katarina is as bad as Shang!  She stops over autonomously constantly–it’s crazy.  Timothy teased Shelly on his own, which made me laugh…


  1. haha, Timothy is working on his future already! Wait are they related…?

    Probably distantly or by marriage.

  2. Aww, the twins are cute. Don’t worry Ryu, Katarina is a surprisingly good mother. At least Tracey does spend time with the kids. LOL, boys will be boys. Now Shelly has an obligation to start a fierce rivalry that will end in marriage. I possibly see another Tsung and Lilith in the making…

    Haha, yeah, Katarina as a mum? Who would have thought? Shelly isn’t quite Lilith, but I’m not sure she enjoyed the teasing!

  3. Great updates Mao! I’m glad that Sarah and Nathaniel finally tied the knot. Sade is absolutely gorgeous! I think Shelly is going to be a beauty too!

    Thanks, Mandie! Sade was definitely a surprise.

  4. Shang and Kat are just moochers, huh? Livin’ it up in someone else’s house! Tsk tsk, Tim! No teasing girls! That means you like ‘em! Those twins are adorable, though. …too bad the creativity totally didn’t get passed along xD

    No, Shang has a nice place in Aperture, Katarina lives with him and James is there, too.

  6. Nice to see that Katarina has grown up a bit. ;) It’s also nice that she and Shang have finally recognized their similarities and how good they are together as long as they make no promises.
    Glad Ryu and Tracey are happy together, too. I’ve always liked him.

    Haha, yeah, it was only a matter of time before they moved in together.

  7. Hmm…I think Shelly and Timothy are 1st cousins once removed. Does the game think they’re family? It would be really wrong if they got married…:P

    I don’t even know what that means, really, but the game does no recognize any relation. I’m sick of marrying townies, we’ll see what happens.

  8. “his increasing age gave him more and more patience.” Really?! Oh, I have to disagree lol

    Shelly doesn’t look happy about the teasing, but we all know why boys tease girls ;)

    Haha, Ryu has always been very patient, but even more so now. Which is odd. As for the teasing, goodness only knows what Timothy was thinking!
