Saunders – Round 21: ‘Hard to Handle, Pt. 6′

Filed under: Saunders — Tags: , , , , , , , — Mao @ 6:06 pm

Damien and Aiyana did not have an easy beginning, but they’re happy now.  Unfortunately, they don’t have much time to themselves, being forced to take care of Basil and his new wife, as well as their children.

Virginia wasn’t exactly pleased to find out she was expecting.  She became even less enamored with the idea as time pressed onward and her stomach continued to grow.  She felt like a fat cow and that wasn’t something Virginia was used to.  She was used to being hot and sexy, spending her nights at the club and ignoring cat calls from perverted and drunken males.  Now she was stuck barfing, eating, and feeling generally bloated.

Worse yet was what the pregnancy resulted in–twin girls, Sage and Daisy.  Virginia and Basil were not prepared at all with what faced them.  Damien and Aiyana did their best to pick up the slack, to try and show the two hapless youths how to properly care for their newborn babies… unfortunately, it didn’t seem to work.

Virginia really had no maternal instinct.  She was more content to sit by and let someone else do the ‘child rearing’.  Basil was too busy doing his crafts.  It all fell on Aiyana and Damien.

Damien was overjoyed to have grandchildren.  River, though the older of the two, had yet to give them any and it didn’t seem like it would be happening anytime soon.  Sure, she was more responsible, but Damien was more concerned with the fact that here, he could cuddle them and care for them directly.  It was a shame that Virginia and Basil didn’t want to have more to do with their babies.

He was happy, however, that Basil had turned his hobby into a business venture.  Damien often helped him sell his wares in Aiyana’s old massage building.  She’d given it up with her increasing age, the arthritis in her hands making it difficult to continue her craft.  She did help Basil sometimes, though, with his pottery.

River visited often and was none-too-pleased with how her younger brother was treating their aging parents.  She read him the riot act regularly, though it fell on deaf ears.

“You can’t just use our parents as servants, Basil!  Take some responsibility!”

Basil would simply laugh her off and go about his business.  He didn’t see what he did as using his parents, he saw it as them helping.  If they had a problem with it, wouldn’t they say something?  River just needed to mind her own business.

Thanks to their grandparents, Daisy and Sage became toddlers and were quite happy and healthy little ones.  They were mischievous, though the two couldn’t be anymore different.  They seemed to come from completely different spectrum, and not just by their looks, but their personalities.  Only time will tell how they make out once their grandparents are gone.


Note from Mao: Sorry there’s no individual shot of the twins.  This house was nuts.  The twins crack me up, though.  Could they look anymore different, seriously?  Daisy doesn’t even have her father or mother’s skintone–she has Aiyana’s, as well as her face template.  Sage seems to have Virginia’s.  River really did come over frequently and yell at River.  It was pretty funny.


  1. Wow, I can’t see her mouth properly but from the looks of it, Daisy really is a dead ringer for Aiyana!

    She definitely is, though I think she may have Virginia’s mouth.

  2. The twins are adorable! They do look different, but sooo cute together!

    They are little terrors, but cute ones.

  3. Wow, completely different, lol! I bet Virginia is happy to have her body back ;)

    She definitely is, for more reasons than one, LOL!

  4. Oh dear…make way for lousy parents. xD The name Sage amuses me because a few days ago, my mom made chicken n’ dumplings and put too much basil and sage in it. I was like, “Darn you, Basil. Get out of my chicken and go get a job.” I entirely blame you for my obsession. I just hope those two…or at least one…get their acts in gear. Damian and Aiyana won’t be around forever.

    Also, River ftw! You go girl! But you better get on givin’ me some bebes too!

    LOL at your chicken and dumplings! That’s hilarious. ;) Yeah, I’m a bit worried for the twins wellbeing after Damien and Aiyana exit stage left. As for River having babies, she’s so stubborn!

  5. LOL the two completely different twins remind me of Julie and Marla when they were born.

    Haha, I know, right? How exactly does that even happen, LOL. But at least Julie had one color of her parents… Daisy doesn’t match either of hers!

  6. Haha, I love when twins look completely different like that! And the Sims just don’t even notice anything odd about it. ;) Go, River! Basil and Virginia need to learn to take responsibility before Damien and Aiyana aren’t around to help out anymore.

    Makes them easy to tell apart, that’s for sure!

  7. The kids are so cute! And I guessed who was who before being told. I rock. :D I love how Virginia’s just standing there in the next picture, like, “Is this it? Can I go now?” LOL.
    Not everybody has a maternal instinct, including myself, but I’m also being more careful than those two.
    Go River! Yell at him again! Too bad she can’t do anything more than yell. Come on River, you know you want to help perpetuate the Yu line…

    River is frustrating! She refused to get pregnant. Worse yet, I have to leave it to ACR to decide… sigh!

  8. Oh damn, twins! Adorable twins, but TWINS. This couple, and parents, are going to be pretty busy. Maybe not the parents who are more involved with themselves, but man…. I hope this doesn’t make things go downhill fast.

    I was certainly shocked when it turned out to be twins. Sigh!
