Anderson – Round 9: ‘Misery Business, End’

Filed under: Anderson — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — Mao @ 9:22 pm

Thomas Anderson has the world at his finger tips, including his girlfriend, Jun Yu, and his daughter, Alyssa Anderson. Now that Alyssa has graduated and is preparing to marry Ryu Yu, can Thomas maintain his hold?


Alyssa and Ryu get married

Alyssa and Ryu were married immediately after graduation, as per Thomas’ orders. It was the only way he’d allow it to happen–Ryu would not live in their house otherwise. Oddly enough, during the ceremony, Thomas found himself seated next to Gordon Saunders. It was a bit odd, seeing his ex-wife’s spawn with his hated enemy. So much so, it nearly distracted him from the rest of the ceremony.

As Thomas watched, he couldn’t help but think Alyssa hadn’t been so foolish after all. If Ryu really did care about her, he’d be less inclined to cause trouble. Everything had to be in perfect order for Alyssa’s political career to take off. She was on her way to becoming a judge right now, but that was only the beginning.

If Alyssa could keep Ryu in line, everything would be fine. Nevermind that Ryu’s mother, who left him as a child, was Thomas’ own live-in girlfriend.

Janine talks to Derek

The wedding party was huge and included Alyssa’s mother, Janine, and her step-siblings. Janine situated herself next to Derek. He’d been getting jumpy lately and it didn’t sit well with Janine. Wedding or not, he needed to be reminded that what happened to Katy could not be made public.

“Just keep quiet and everything will be fine,” Janine said through her teeth, smiling broadly.

Derek did the same, “I think Mary suspects something.”

“Nonsense,” Janine replied. “She’s busy with the twins. Just act normal and forget about it. Everything will be fine as long as you keep quiet.”

Ryu talks to Alyssa

There was no time for a honeymoon, Alyssa had to be sworn in as a judge the next day. Alyssa had wanted a nice few days on the beach, especially since Thomas had recently purchased a vacation house, but it wasn’t finished yet. They’d have to wait until Alyssa was secure in her seat as Mayor to take their belated honeymoon.

During his stay at the Anderson house, Ryu caught on quick to the ‘way of things’. Thomas ran everyone. He told them what to do, when to do it, and how it should be done. It was unnerving and Ryu couldn’t help but suspect Thomas’ motives for pushing Alyssa’s platform when it came to her career. He confided this to her one afternoon.

“Daddy just wants what is best for me,” Alyssa responded, brushing off his accusations. “Sure, he’s controlling, but it’s his way of showing he cares. It always has been–ask Florence!”

“It just doesn’t make sense,” Ryu countered, not falling for it. He didn’t trust Thomas, but he certainly feared him. “He’s up to something, Alyssa. Just be careful.”

Alyssa rolled her eyes, “just because you’re afraid of him doesn’t mean he’s a bad man, Ryu.”

Jun Yu is an elder

Meanwhile, Jun Yu found herself much older and not so much wiser. She certainly didn’t feel like an old granny, so she refused to dress like one. She dyed her hair and bought some new, flattering clothes. Why dress like an old biddy? She was still young at heart and certainly the best looking woman of her age group, to be sure.

Ryu is worried about Alyssa

Several months after the wedding, Ryu began to notice a change in Alyssa. She was taking frequent naps and would run off without explanation, only to emerge sometime later with a pale face and glassy eyes. To say he was worried would have been an understatement. When he heard her get up from her nap and stomp through the hall, he hurried up the stairs and caught her in the bathroom.

“Are you all right?”

She jumped, and turned to face him, clearly surprised, “wh-what are you doing?”

“I heard you get up and run, I just came to check on you,” he said, giving her an odd look. “Are you sick?”

“No, I’m fine. Just some bad lobster–that’s all.”

Thomas trains Alyssa

Truth be told, Alyssa had been feeling ill for nearly two weeks now. It made it hard to concentrate when he father ran her through her speeches. She was a senator now, only a step away from election. She really need to be on her best when it came to preparing, but she just couldn’t focus.

“Alyssa, what’s wrong with you? What has any of this got to do with violins?” Thomas said, his eyes narrowing.

Alyssa sighed heavily, “violins? Was I talking about violins?”

“Yes,” he replied, eyebrows raised. “You were.”

“Oh, I’m sorry–” Suddenly, her face paled. She ran off towards the bathroom without another word.


  1. Although it is unexpected it’s so sweet that they have a baby. Now they’ll just have to get rid of Thomas and all will be fine :)

    Mao edit: I have the feeling Thomas will be around for a long, long while…

  2. wow, Katarina looks so cute. Ryu and Alyssa seem to be getting on better also. I’m not sure if i want to know what Janine either did or made someone do to Katy. Something fishy is happening here.

    Mao edit: I’m really hoping Katarina turns out cute. I actually picked the name this time. ;) As for what happened to Katy… heehee…

  3. Thomas is such a ******* (lol i get so worked up over him). I think i’ve got used to Alyssa, i found her pretty funny in this update. I still think Ryu’s pretool, although still a bit wimpy. I know there’ll be one update where he and Thomas have a massive argument, and Ryu bette win! :)

    Mao edit: Haha, poor Ryu. He’s less tool-like now. I dunno if anyone can win an argument against Thomas, though. ;)

  4. Jun is such a bad influence. Shaniqua better watch herself.

    Mao edit: It may be too late for that…

  5. Oh no, after Thomas screwed up his own life he’s starting to mess up his daughter’s! Age doesn’t seem to have changed Yun’s ways, I won’t be surprised if Thomas will end up all alone.

    Mao edit: I think he’d be the least bothered by being alone. He only has Jun because it’s convenient. Ahhh, Thomas, you heartless bugger…

  6. Aww the baby is so cute and finally the saunders curse has ended.

    Mao edit: Haha, I think a different Saunders curse has begun…

  7. Jun is never nice without an ulterior out Shaniqua, you’ve been so normal so far! A few of Alyssa’s comments make me think she’s not so sure that Daddy’s right about everything, is she going to get out from under his thumb?! Thomas would never allow that.

    Mao edit: You’re right, he wouldn’t… so if Alyssa did ever decide to try, well, things would get mighty interesting.

  8. Well, I was very surprised to see that Alyssa and Ryu had gotten pregnant! I didn’t think their marriage was a “true” marriage…ya know…woohoo’ing and stuff. Are they finally in love with each other?

    Mao edit: Ryu has always been in love with Alyssa, so there’s no issue there. Alyssa has her own kind of love, but we’ve yet to see what exactly is going on there.

  9. !!!!!EW!
    How dare Jun… I don’t now if I’m more upset at Shaniqua or Jun. They should learn some self-control, I’m olny 17 and I have more than them. Tsk, tsk, tsk, Dirty, dirty women. :P
    Katarina looks so cute, with her tan skin! I swore she would get the darker one! At least we know she’s an Anderson, those Saunders took over the hood! :)

    Mao edit: Haha, I’m hoping Katarina turns out really cute. As for Shaniqua and Jun… they’re Romance sims. Self-control isn’t in their vocabulary. ;)

  10. Hmmm, Alyssa as a mom – I wonder how she’ll be…
