Yu 2 – Round 20: ‘Turn Me Loose, Pt. 3′

Filed under: Yu — Tags: , , , , , , , — Mao @ 9:49 am

Ryu and Tracey Yu are happy, despite the rocky road they’ve ventured on to get here.  Marcus and Shelly are teens now and just starting to figure out what they want out of life.

Shelly Yu was not happy to hear about Timothy O’Hanlon and Isolde Anderson being together.  She had hoped the rumors were false, but when she saw them together at school, it was too obvious to ignore.  If she didn’t act soon, they’d be official.  That just couldn’t be.  Timothy was supposed to be hers!  They had been picking on one another since childhood, surely that meant something.

That little social reject was not making a fool out of her by stealing her would-be boyfriend.  Sure, they were related, but that didn’t mean Shelly had to like her.

Meanwhile, Ryu was trying to talk some sense into his son.  In a surprising act, Alyssa had phoned him and told him of Nevio’s behavior.  Ryu had hoped that perhaps he could make Nevio see reason, but it seemed fruitless.  He was spoiled and set in his ways.  Ryu was definitely regretting all that time he spent trying to nail down Gordon Saunders… he had almost had him, but well, he couldn’t act now.  Gordon had them right where he wanted them.

“It’s raining, Shelly,” Timothy said, giving her a look.  “Aren’t you worried about your hair?”

Shelly laughed and tried to pretend his was kidding, “Oh, you’re hilarious!  Now, don’t avoid the question…”

Timothy looked uncomfortable, “I was actually going to ask Isolde to the dance, Shelly… sorry.”

“That’s fine, I was only asking because I didn’t want you to be dateless.  That’s what friends do.” Shelly replied, trying not to look as angry as she felt.

Tracey fulfilled her dreams and became the head of the SCIA.  Unfortunately, it meant little.  In fact, it made her feel guilty because she’d never be able to do anything.  Gordon had her firmly in his grasp, any action against him threatened her family.  She sighed and carried the groceries in, as if it were any other night.  She was as much in his pocket as the corrupt officers and city officials.

Shelly was still sore over Timothy’s rejection, but what could she do?  And then, one day at school, Marcus introduced her to his friend, Cole Anderson.  He had the same last name as Isolde, but they weren’t related.  How weird is that?  Anyway, they got to talking and it seemed Cole had a thing for Isolde and was surprised when he saw her with Timothy O`Hanlon, who he assumed to be Shelly’s boyfriend.

Together, they schemed.  They would pretend to be a couple in the hopes of making the other two jealous… and perhaps inadvertantly try to break them up in the process, too.

“I don’t think you should do this, Shel,” Marcus reasoned, giving his sister a look.  “It isn’t right.  Just let them be.  It won’t work anyway, Timothy doesn’t like you like that.”

Shelly rolled her eyes, “For being a boy, Marcus, you sure are clueless.  He’ll care once I’m taken!  Just make sure you keep your mouth shut about it, all right?”

“Fine, whatever, but I still think it’s stupid.”

Marcus and Shelly would often walk to the park and hangout.  Usually they’d be joined by their friends, but with this whole mess, that had stopped.  Marcus missed hanging out with Timothy, but he couldn’t reason with himself that lying was okay, so he avoided his old friend.  Even Cole, too, seemed too busy with Shelly.

At least they still had family time.  Tracey and Ryu had recently added a deck onto the house and with it, a hot tub.  Everyone enjoyed clustering to it after a long day’s work or homework.  It was definitely a place of ‘family bonding’, though Shelly and Marcus didn’t want to venture a guess as to the real reason their parents had purchased it…


Note from Mao: Cole and Shelly have THREE bolts without any trying from me.  Wow.  I was definitely shocked, lol.  Poor Marcus, he’s losing his friends to Shelly!


  1. Everyone is trying to talk sense into Nevio, but I think it’s a lost cause :)

    Shelly’s a little plotter but with 3 bolts for her fellow schemer, I see this plan leading to a different ending.

    It definitely is a lost cause!

  2. Well, that’s a match made in heaven. Ahh, the scheming; sounds like Sami Brady and Lucas Roberts from the soap I used to watch back in the day. Good old Days of Our Lives. Hopefully, like them, Cole and Shelly will realize that their best match is in each other.
    I’m seeing flashbacks of Ryu and Alyssa in high school, too.
    Marcus may just have to wait till all this blows over. Can’t he just make sure the topic of conversation doesn’t steer in Shelly’s direction? Then he won’t have to worry about it. Or maybe that’s just wishful thinking on my part. I’ve been caught in the middle, so I can relate.

    I’m always excited when I run into sims who are automatically three bolts, even if they are annoyingly clingy, haha. Poor Marcus, his own honesty keeps him from his friends!

  3. Oh man! Shelly, shelly, shelly. Tim’s happy with Isolde, so why don’t you go be happy with Cole and then everyone will be happy! My heart goes out to Marcus. He can’t be with his friends because of his sister’s ploy. He should just break everything up and tell Timothy. It’ll never work Shelly! Just you wait and see! (LOL)

    It likely won’t work, because Timothy and Isolde are quite fond of each other. Perhaps Cole and Shelly will realize how compatible they are. ;)

  4. Aww, doesn’t Shelley watch any Television? The ‘Making you jealous by dating someone else even though you’re not interested lulz’ thing NEVER WORKS, BB. *pets* It will get better once you see your delicious three bolts with Cole. Thy are cute together. :D

    LOL! Very true.

  5. oh, dear. Shelly’s gonna be a drama llama, all up in arms over the whole Tim-Iso thing. Tsk. poor Tracey will never ever be able to escape Gordon…not even when she’s six feet under, I fear D: Nuuu! Cole! Don’t use the “pretend boyfriend-girlfriend thing to get people jealous” scheme! It never works out! D: be smart, you part alien purple boy, you!

    I feel so bad for poor Marcus xD

    Marcus always seems to get the short end of the stick! Gotta love twins.

  7. whoa-that’s one meaty update! I have to read the past updates and see why Ryu thinks Gordon has them where he wants them.

    It goes back to their divorce, when Gordon threatened Tracey.

  8. are you sure they are not related (Cole and Isolde)? I would think that by now your whole ‘hood would be related?

    They are distant/nonexistent relatives. Remember that the Anderson family branches off. :)

  9. Shelly and Marcus have grown up to be very pretty (and handsome). I’m surprised that all the boys aren’t in love with Shelly! But I think her and Cole make a cute couple, so it’s okay with me!

    Haha, glad you’re pleased!
