Saunders – Round 5: ‘Unfortunate Ends, Pt. 2′

Saunders Family Round 5

Henry Saunders has a crowded house, what with his fiancee Jun Yu, their son Ryu Yu, and his newly graduated son from his first wife, Derek Saunders, moving in with his fiancee, Katy Fuchs. Can they make it work? And will the news of Thomas and Jun’s affair spread to Henry?


Derek and Katy hug

Graduation was bittersweet for Derek Saunders. On one hand, he could finally pursue his career and make money. On the other hand, he lost Mary and was now engaged to his teenage love, Katy Fuchs. Derek liked Katy, but what they had was nothing compared to how he felt about Mary. She was in his every waking thought, making it incredibly difficult to be amiable with Katy.

Katy was surprisingly understanding and patient. To her, she had Derek and he wasn’t going anywhere. Mary was a respectable girl, after all, she wouldn’t be a ‘on the side fling’. She and Derek would get married and he’d eventually forget all about Mary O`Hanlon.

Henry sees for himself

Meanwhile, Henry found out for himself how troublesome relationships could be. Especially when your significant other is cheating on you with the enemy. Henry had taken a vacation day and apparently Jun hadn’t noticed he was still home. He nearly walked in on them in the kitchen. Instead of confronting them and kicking Thomas out of his house, he sat on his hands, waiting for the right moment.

Ryu sees for himself

Of course, Henry wasn’t the only one who knew. Ryu had seen it, as well. He had come home from school a day or two earlier and there it was, right before his young little eyes, his mother was embracing a stranger! He was torn up, but Jun nor Thomas seemed to notice him. He scrambled inside and tried to rationalize what he saw in his head.

Should he tell dad? But that would make them fight. Derek and Katy argued enough, the house didn’t need more fighting. He reasoned that maybe he saw wrong and kept quiet.

Derek and Ryu talk

Being quiet isn’t easy for a kid on the cusp of their teen years, though, and Ryu ended up confiding in his half-brother Derek.

“You should tell dad,” Derek said sternly. “Why didn’t you?”

“I knew she was no good,” Katy said quietly, muttering from behind her book. Suddenly, she looked apologetic, “Sorry, Ryu, but it’s true. Your mother is… well, maybe it’s best if your father knows.”

“I can’t tell him!” Ryu replied angrily. “He’d never believe me… I’m just a kid. Why don’t you do it, Derek?”

“No way, little dude. I didn’t see a thing.”

Henry confides in Janine

Fortunately for Ryu, he never had to say a word. That evening, Janine Anderson came over at Henry’s request. He had called her cell phone, as always, and was surprised to hear she wasn’t at home. When she arrived, he pulled her into the quietest place and told her everything.

“I know, Henry,” she said with a frown. “Thomas and I are divorced. It’s been a week. I had him followed and he was off on vacation with Jun.”

Why didn’t you tell me?” Henry was understandably hurt. “All this time…”

“I didn’t know how to,” she replied quickly and sadly. “I… I didn’t know if you’d believe me…”

Henry confesses to Janine

“Of course I would have believed you,” Henry responded, gently touching her face. “You’ve always been honest with me.”

“Henry…” she began carefully, but seeing the look on his face, found the confidence to continue. “I haven’t really. I mean, there’s things that–”

“It doesn’t matter. Where are you staying, are you all right?”

“He took everything, even Alyssa.” Janine sniffled. “I’ve been staying at a hotel, but my money is running out. I’m sorry, I shouldn’t trouble you with this.”

Henry shook his head and took her hand, “you can stay here… for as long as you like. It’s a little crowded, but there’s plenty of room.”


  1. Poor Janine even though shes with the man I think she truly loves she still can’t tell him everything glad Jun was finally kicked out and im glad Alyssa still visits lol to the dead sim who passed out

    Mao edit: I’m letting his tombstone on the lot. Ghosts are always interesting…

  2. Chuck! He’s already my favourite sim! :P Hmmm, I’m glad Jun got kicked out. She doesn’t even deserve Thomas, mind you he doesn’t deserve her either. Speaking of Thomas, when i first saw that out-take of the dead sim, i SWEAR it was Thomas! Then i saw the ponytail :P Ryu and Alyssa could be interesting, i sure hope she doesn’t turn out as rotten as her dad or Jun. Not sure how to feel about Derek and Katy. He should just stick to Katy for your sake :P Thanks for the huge update, i actually got to write alot more than i usually do :P

    Mao edit: Haha, I don’t think Derek knows what to think about the situation with Katy, either. I am really excited for this develop of Ryu liking Alyssa. Alyssa is turning out to be… interesting.

  3. OH YES!
    Janines following my list! lol. well, sort of.
    NO! bad Ryu! Stay away from the her! Don’t you realize she’s like your mother and Tom?? That’s the worst combination EVER!!
    A townie randomly died??? LOL! That’s hilarious!

    Mao edit: Hahaha, poor Ryu doesn’t know what he’s getting into. ;) And Alyssa isn’t as… ‘easy going’ (COUGH) as Jun, so she’s not that bad. Just very well trained by Thomas.

  4. Yay, woooo go Janine. and i’m not sure if this is the revenge that you were on about so there may be more? Also i have an idea about why Gina is being so snappy at Derrick, You said last time that you had risky woo-hoo installed, Mary will have got knocked up too and that’ll make everything more complicated for you :) , probably not buy, hey, its an idea :)

    Mao edit: That’s exactly why! Mary is pregnant and Gina is helping her hide it so Derek doesn’t find out. ;) As for Janine, no, she hasn’t gotten her revenge just yet…

  5. That was a great update! I am soooo very happy that Henry kicked Jun out and is now with Janine! Now if only Derek would divorce Katy and get with Mary! It would be a perfect world! But where’s the fun in that?! Heehee, can’t wait for the next one Mao. I should really be studying for me 4 midterms next week, or writing the gigantuous paper I have due on Monday…but the call of Boreal Springs was just too strong!

    Mao edit: Ugh, you poor girl!! I am SO glad I am done with huge papers and midterms. Good luck!!

  6. Dang I wanted him and Mary to get together and is he ever going to find out about his other child?

    Mao edit: It depends on the sims. Right now, Mary would never take someone’s husband or their father, so yeah, it’s looking kinda dim.

  7. Henry will let anyone move in, first Jun now Janine. Always trying to settle down. Derek is still asking about Mary? Uh oh

    Random townie death is hysterical, I’ve never had that happen, I didn’t even know it could lol

    Mao edit: Well, Henry and Janine have three bolts–that was coming. ;) I know!! I didn’t know it could, either… lol… especially a teen!
