Saunders 2 – Round 20: ‘You Turn the Screws, Pt. 4′

Filed under: Davis — Tags: , , , , , , — Mao @ 9:53 pm

[Family image postponed until I can get SimPE functioning properly.  For some reason, sims are missing portraits and blank?  They have no portrait file!]

Elena was happily welcomed home by both Gordon and Lauren.  While Elena was not his biological daughter, Gordon treated her every bit as if she was of his own.  He had been worried about her situation with Fou-Lu and was thankful that she seemed to have gotten her head back and was persuing her dream.

Claude, meanwhile, took little notice to his half-sister rejoining the family.  He was too caught up in his romantic pursuits.  Senior year had been a whirlwind of action for him.  He was planning on going to University, so he had to get in as much time with the girls at high school as he could.  There would be newer and more mature conquests waiting for him on campus!

He was, however, amused by his mother’s constant prodding of Elena.  She was concerned about the situation with Fou-Lu, especially now.  They weren’t dating, but Lauren knew that they had been ‘seeing’ one another, despite their broken up status, in university.  Elena told her mother to mind her own business, that she was an adult, but Lauren couldn’t help but feel there was more to the story.

Michael knew better, in fact, he came over one afternoon to confront Elena.  After she and Fou-Lu had hooked up briefly in university, she had stopped calling him.  In fact, she downright refused to see him.  Michael had been shocked when this happened, but even more shocked when Elena opted out of moving into an apartment with him–as they had originally planned–and moving back home.  Now Michael was rooming with Fou-Lu and he wanted to know what was going on.

“Be quiet, Michael,” Elena hushed him, eyes narrowed.  Lauren was nearing them and she was worried she’d overhear.  “I’m already getting grilled by mom!”

“Is it any wonder?  What’s going on, Elena?  You’ve never been like this with me…”

“Just don’t worry about it, okay?  And tell Fou-Lu to stop calling.  We’re over.”

Everyone concerning themselves with Elena’s odd behavior had taken notice off Claude’s escapades.  Gordon no longer lectured him and his mother no longer sighed and looked disappointed.  He was leaving for University and the freedom would be welcome.  He’d leave Elena here to keep his parents preoccupied.

“I told you to stop calling,” Elena said harshly into the receiver.  Her hand fell on her stomach subconsciously and her heart tightened.  “I don’t want to see you, all right?  Just leave me alone.”

Fou-Lu was repentant and confused, but he eventually hung up and gave Elena her wish.  She hated to do this, but what other choice did she have?  She had found out she was pregnant shortly before leaving University.  Her dreams were crushed, the dancing troupe that had offered her a spot had revoked it.  They couldn’t wait nine months.

Elena couldn’t tell Fou-Lu, there was just no way.  He was barely responsible enough to handle a relationship, much less a baby.


  1. It might just be me but Emma looks like a female version of Shang. Just a smidgeon! And on second thought, would Emma be the first female Yu with that skintone?

    Remember that Fou-Lu and Shang have the exact same coloring, too. And yep! She’s actually the first female Yu born in the game.

  2. whoa! Elena’s baby is a cutie! What a meaty update! Glad you’re feeling better and things are settling down!

    Slowly, but surely! I still have a few houses ahead of the blog. Hopefully I can get those up soon.

  3. I freakin’ love Gordon. He is so evil and yet so sweet and caring.. Sigh…

    Also, Elena is just lucky that the baby wasn’t Shang’s, with the way she’s been acting.

    Hahaha, nope, not Shang’s! They only got busy once in the game and she wasn’t controllable. ;)

  4. Awww, I hope she tells him! Maybe this will be the kick in the butt he needs to grow up a little. And I think Emma looks a lot like her daddy :)

    Perhaps, we will just have to wait and see! But Michael won’t rest until she comes around.

  5. I hope Fou-Lu gets a chance to meet his child!

    I had that problem with missing portraits in SimPE too and I was freaking out that my character files might be corrupted. But from what I found on SimPE’s discussion board is that it’s caused by AL and the way that it constantly updates the portraits, so some Sims end up “between” portraits. Very annoying! I was trying to grab all of the updated portraits I needed the other day and several of my Sims didn’t have one.

    Thanks so much, Shana! I was so worried, but that makes sense. Phew. I hate that it constantly updates them. It’s a little annoying.

  6. Wow Emma is a cutie and she definitely looks just like her father. You tell her Michael, Elena is the one being immature now.

    Haha, yeah. She really needs to tell him.

  7. Finally, an update. I was worried you’d died on me for a minute. Well, I definitely didn’t see that coming. Emma is so cute! That explains why the Yus never have any in-house girls; they spread them everywhere else! Elena cut herself off from Michael? If anything, I’d cling to him like a lifeline. Maybe she was afraid he’d tell on her, but she should at least give Fou-Lu a chance. Children tend to bring wandering Yu men around (except Shang, but I’m not even going there). Ah, if Elena knew the story with her biological father, she might long for the days of ignorance and bliss. Oh, the complications that would ensue.

    Elena has never been someone you can tell what to do. Michael is really just trying to help. He’s sort of stuck in the middle on this one, LOL! And yep, I live!

  8. Oooh. Claude. I can’t wait to see him get into a fight with Sade over a mirror as well as keep his ladies in check. xD He cracks me up.

    Elena, Elena, Elena…my dear, where is your head? Fou-Lu might be a bit immature when it comes to most things but I am sure he would be a great father. He deserves the right to know about this lovely little child. Mm. Emma is such a cutie. Yet another girl for Gordon to become puddy to. xD He might be menacing to everyone else but my goodness, he becomes a teddy bear around those cute little girls, doesn’t he?

    I love Michael oh so much. xD poor thing.

    Haha, yes, Gordon is easily turned softie by the females in his family. ;) But he’s very family aware and that’s why he does the things he does. He wanted his children to not have to “take over” the business. ;) Emma is adorable!

  9. BTW whose eyes does Emma have?

    Fou-Lu’s, they are the blue eyes the Yus related to Eileen typically have.

  10. Wow Claude, you’re such a stud! Go get those girls! ROFL

    Emma is darling! I hope that her Mommy can overcome her emotions and let F.L. see his lovely daughter. Who knows, maybe he’ll surprise Elena and things can work out between them and this new family.

    Claude’s ways will soon get him into trouble. ;) Fou-Lu will meet his daughter, what happens after remains to be seen!

  11. Awww, Emma is adorable. She looks just like her father! I think Fou-Lu will fall in love with his daughter, even if he’s not ready to be a parent! I’m in sims withdrawal too! But I’m glad you’re updating again!

    Haha, thanks! I’m sure your baby is keeping you plenty busy. We need Sim Addicts Anonymous, LOL!
