Anderson – Round 5: ‘Unfortunate Ends, Pt. 1′

Anderson Family Round 5

Thomas Anderson is getting sloppy when it comes to hiding his affair with Jun Yu (or does he just not care anymore?) Will Janine finally catch him and what will become of Alyssa?


Janine sees Jun

One evening, when Janine had been heading to work (she claimed she was an extra in a crime drama), she ran into Jun Yu approaching the house. She looked surprised and tried to pretend she was just casually walking by. It would have been more convincing had she not been on their porch at the time.

“Nice outfit…” Jun said, giving her a look.

“Yes,” Janine replied coldly. “It is quite a comfortable uniform.”

If Janine hadn’t been suspicious before, she certainly was now.

Alyssa gets into private school

While Janine was at work and after Jun had left, Thomas worked on getting Alyssa accepted into the Private Academy that had recently opened near Boreal Springs. It accepted only the best of the best… which Alyssa was. She picked up things quickly and could memorize equations and phrases beyond her years. It didn’t take much talking to convince the headmaster that she was perfect.

She got her uniform and a one-way-pass to rub elbows with the snootiest kids that area had to offer.

Thomas and Alyssa spend time together

With her acceptance into the Academy, Alyssa found that she got everything she wanted. Before, her father had been nice to her, but now… she was even allowed to eat chips for breakfast! The more she excelled and did as he directed, the more things she got. Her room was overflowing with toys and things other kids wished they had. Of course, that would soon be irrelevant… she was coming up on her first teenage birthday.

That was when the fun of being spoiled would truly come in handy.

Janine and Thomas argue

Janine wasn’t nearly as thrilled about this as Alyssa was. She also wasn’t thrilled with catching Jun coming to the house when she just happened to be leaving for work. She confronted Thomas, but of course, it did nothing.

“You expect me to believe that Jun was just passing by? I’m not a complete idiot, Thomas!”

“I never said I expected you to believe anything. You’re the one assuming things.” He replied easily. “But I can’t talk about this now. As you know, I have a conference to attend.”

“How convenient.” Janine mumbled.

Janine checks the mail

Janine would not be so easily brushed aside, however. She had her ‘dear’ husband followed by an associate. It took a day or two for the package to arrive. When it did, Janine was hardly shocked. Why hadn’t she seen it before? How could she have been so blind? Conference, indeed.

She knew when Henry told her Jun was gone–for some work thing–that something was up. Now she had the proof. Could she bring herself to show it to Henry? They had a child together.


Thomas and Jun meet

Jun was hardly at ‘some work thing’ and the only conference Thomas had was with Jun. They met at the island, and Thomas knew that they were being followed. It didn’t matter much… Thomas had a plan. He always had a plan.”I hope this is a celebratory vacation,” Jun said with a slightly annoyed tone. “I’m sick of sneaking around and that house is so crowded!

“Oh, don’t worry,” Thomas assured her with a grin. “It is. But this is the only way I could ensure that despite the adultery, everything will still be mine.”

“Your wife is scary, Thomas.”

“Not nearly as scary as me.”

Jun talks to Henry while Thomas grins

“Yes, Ryu,” Jun said into the receiver with a sigh, “I’m sure it was great. Can you give the phone back to your daddy now?”

Jun had to keep the guise up, at least until they returned. She took calls and made sure to keep her lies straight–with the help of Thomas, of course. There was some satisfaction in sticking someone you disliked in the back with a knife. Thomas was enjoying this vacation quite a bit.

“…yeah, it’s raining. Really nasty weather…”

Alyssa is a teen

When Thomas returned, it was just in time for Alyssa’s birthday. She grew into a beautiful young lady and surprisingly, took after her father in features and retained her mother’s coloring. Of course, with her attitude and charisma, she was the newest ‘it’ girl at the academy.

She was harsh, cruel, and domineering. Nothing got in the way of what she wanted–she could have anything and everything! As long as she followed her father’s wishes, of course, and his first decree was no dating. That wouldn’t be too hard. She preferred torturing them to dating them, anyway.

Thomas tells Janine to beat it

Janine sat on her hands when it came to confronting Thomas. She wanted to, but if she did, it would cause a domino effect that would quickly reach Henry. He deserved to know, but she didn’t want him to find out like that. Unfortunately, Janine couldn’t have known that Thomas was plotting behind her back. He came home from work and approached her.

“I’m surprised you’ve kept quiet this long–I know you know, Janine. You had us followed. I also happen to know why you’ve got more gold than a bank.” He smiled cruelly. “You’re not the only one who can have someone followed.”

“What do you want?” Janine growled, her fists balling at her sides.

“Everything. We divorce ‘amiably’ in the eyes of the courts; irreconcilable differences–you’re a wanted criminal and I have Jun. The house, everything, it’s mine. You can go where and do as you please. But you won’t get a damned thing. If you don’t agree, you’ll find that these amenities won’t help you much behind bars.”

“You bastard,” Janine snarled. “This isn’t over!”

“Sure it is, good bye, Janine.”

Alyssa stays with Thomas

Janine woke Alyssa up hurriedly, telling her to pack her things. Alyssa looked at her oddly a minute before realization hit her. She frowned, but not entirely.

“I can choose who I stay with, can’t I?”

“Yes, you can. You’re old enough.” Janine said sadly. She knew where this was going and now all that time Thomas spent with her made sense. “Alyssa…”

“I want to stay with daddy.”

Janine leaves

As Janine left the house, a million thoughts ran through her mind. She narrowed her eyes and clenched her fists tightly. This was not over. Thomas was sneaky, but Janine was resourceful… and what did she have to lose? Nothing.

This was far from over.


Note from Mao: Okay, truth time… Thomas was caught by accident because I am an idiot. Janine was headed to work and Jun came over. I had Thomas greet her while Janine was in the carpool and well, yeah. But it was more interesting story wise this way.


  1. THAT B******!!! @#$%^&*($^! *ranting*

    here’s the master plan that took 30 seconds to decide.
    Janines To-Do list:
    1. live with Henry.
    2. have Jun caught wtih Tom on her wedding day
    3. kick Jun out so she has to live with Tom &bitchy Alyssa
    4. Team up with Henry for sweet revenge.
    5. kill Tom and Jun & send Alyssa to military school.

    :D there you go Janine. R.I.P Tom!

    Mao edit: HAHA!! Oh my goodness! :lol: That is a fantastic list… but we need the characters to keep things interesting. Alyssa definitely isn’t going anywhere, but Janine will definitely get her revenge. I’m a little nervous to see what it turns out to be.

  2. Sims are so stupid sometimes. I mean, why would you greet someone like that in front of your wife? *facepalm*

    Mao edit: I know, right? Silly sims.

  3. OMG, poor Janine, but it was bound to happen sometime. Right now i’m just looking forward to what the revenge will be *grins evilly* lol and also is Janine going to move in with Florence and Shaniqua until she gets her feet back on the ground, or wheres she going to go?

    Mao edit: Good question! I guess we’ll find out soon enough, won’t we? ;)

  5. Great update once again! I love all the sub-plots of the neighborhood. Hard to believe you don’t write them before playing them out! I love the pictures too, they really fit in well. Man, if I knew listening to sims wants would make for such good reads, I’d have done it ages ago! Guess I’ll just have to pay more attention to my simmies now! By the way, I hate TOM!

    Mao edit: Haha, thanks, Mandie! I love following my sims around but I rarely blog about it. So this is fun. I try to rationalize some of their crazy behaviors, but for the most part, this is sim wants LOL! Oh, and I was wondering, did you get that reply to your email? I just wanted to make sure you were making out okay with the hosting stuff. Let me know!

  6. Wow… Your hood has so much going on. Who would have thought that old Thomas would have the upper hand. I can’t wait to see what happens next.

    Mao edit: It’s quite insane… sheesh. Everyone has drama, it seems!

    Comment by Monique — February 21, 2008 @ 12:11 am

  7. Oh, teh dramas! Ohhh, that sneaky, sneaky Thomas…

    Mao edit: He is quite sneaky…

    Comment by Christina — February 21, 2008 @ 10:21 pm

  8. OMG I can’t belive that snake would do that to her i hope she gets him back>:(

    Mao edit: Oh, don’t worry… Janine has a plan.

  9. I fear Janine. She looks kinda scary in that last shot. :) Can Thomas really believe that she’ll leave quietly? Oh, he is an idiot.

    Mao edit: Being afraid of Janine is probably a good idea…

  10. Ha ha – I liked this update! I didn’t expect Thomas to do that – now he better watch his back! There’s nothing worse than the wrath of a woman who has nothing left to lose…

    Jun looked hot in that bikini btw – after one child! Really envy the sims’ post partum bods, they’re like hollywood stars that way.

    Haha, yeah, they bounce back pretty quick. Lucky sims!
