Anderson – Round 9: ‘Misery Business, End’

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

Jun sets the trap

While they were upstairs, Jun was downstairs doing her own sort of ‘training’. She knew her friend Shaniqua Saunders was miserable and confused, so she wanted to help her out. The last time she had introduced her to an old friend, they hit it off very well, but nothing ever came of it. This time, however, Jun would be sure Shaniqua got the message.

Shaniqua is swayed

It worked, of course. Shaniqua was teetering on the edge and it was enough of a push to send her sailing over. Of course, who could say what would come of this… but Jun was sure whatever it was, it would bring some clarity to the situation. Sure, Florence wouldn’t be happy, but this wasn’t just about her or her brood–Shaniqua deserved to be happy, too.

And by the look on her face, at that moment, Shaniqua was quite happy.

Ryu confronts Alyssa

“Why didn’t you tell me?” Ryu said, sitting down next to Alyssa.

“Tell you what?” She was surprised and saw there was no escape. Her odd behavior hadn’t gone unnoticed and neither had the fact that she had grown uncommonly quiet lately.

“That you’re pregnant,” Ryu replied, giving her a look. “I saw the papers–you left them out in the open. Not to mention all the running you’ve been doing. When were you going to tell me?”

Alyssa sighed, “I don’t know. I haven’t even told daddy yet–he’ll be furious. I’m so close… but if I’m pregnant, I can’t work…”

“That’s not important, Alyssa,” Ryu shot back, slightly angry. “Thomas can go to hell. Whatever he hopes to gain out of you becoming mayor is nothing compared to your health and the health of the baby. Why didn’t you tell me? How far along are you? How long have you known?”

“I just found out,” she pouted. “Only a month and a half… but I’ll start showing soon. I can’t hide it for much longer.”

“You never should have to begin with. You have to tell Thomas.”

Alyssa tells Thomas

Thomas was, of course, quite furious. Alyssa wasn’t supposed to be even thinking of children yet! How could she be so careless? Her entire career was now at risk! Ryu had better stay well away, that was for certain, or Thomas would feel the need to help relieve him of some unnecessary body parts. Still, maybe it could work. No, it would work, Thomas would make it. He always made things work.

“Maybe it isn’t as bad as we think,” Thomas said, ignoring the fact that Alyssa didn’t necessarily see it as ‘bad’. “Maybe you being a mother will present you as a more likely candidate to those with families. Yes, that could help win the voters over tremendously… a power mom–part career woman, part mother.”

Alyssa was dubious, “daddy, I really don’t like the idea of turning my child into a political stepping stone–”

“Nonsense!” Thomas snapped. “It will be perfect. We’ll need to work on your image a little, and set back some speeches, but it’ll work.”

Alyssa and Ryu redecorate

Alyssa and Ryu stepped into her old room and began trying to decide where to put everything. They’d convert the unused room into a nursery for the baby. While Alyssa had stopped using it years ago, Webster had loved sleeping in there. Unfortunately, the old dog had passed several days ago and it was now time to make use of the space once more.

“I don’t think I like the idea of putting our baby where the dog died, Ryu,” Alyssa said, looking around. “That’s morbid.”

“No, it isn’t. That’s life,” Ryu replied, feeling suffocated by all the pink. “But we’ll have to find somewhere to put all this… stuff.”

“Hey,” Alyssa’s brows furrowed as she noticed the tone with which he said ‘stuff’, “that ‘stuff’ was mine! It was good stuff.”

“Yes, but now you’re an adult and I hardly think you need this… this what is this?” He asked, pointing to the weird glowing ball on the side table.

“It’s a lamp, you idiot!” She huffed.

Katarina Anderson

Katarina Anderson was born a month early, but was still healthy. Alyssa had survived the labor, but wasn’t quite sure if she ever wanted to go through it again. She wasn’t even sure if she could be a mother. She hadn’t ever really thought about babies, but it was her own fault for not being more careful. Alyssa had waited until she was married to do anything of that sort, so when she finally discovered it… well, too much of a good thing, as they say.

Katarina had Alyssa’s lovely tan skin, but her eyes were none other than her great-grandmother Risa’s! It was a pleasant surprise, to be sure. The brown hair obviously came from Ryu.


Note from Mao: Ahh, I did NOT want Alyssa and Ryu to have a baby so soon! In fact, I never let my sims have babies so early into adulthood. Ugh. Oh well. At least she somehow got Risa’s eyes! That’s awesome.  Also, I know the DB needs updated–I’m working on it.  It takes FOREVER to upload on my fiance’s craptastic satellite interwebs so I am doing it only every few houses now.


  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…
