Anderson 4 – Round 22: ‘Sledgehammer, End’

Filed under: Anderson — Tags: , , , — Mao @ 3:40 pm

Roman Anderson has been up to no good lately and he’s beginning to wish he’d thought things through a little better.  Cara is oblivious and Gregory is still a bit too young to notice anything amiss.

When Roman suggested a vacation, Cara was quite thrilled.  She hadn’t been back to the islands since she left and returning, successful and wealthy, certainly sat well with her.  She didn’t bother questioning his motives.  Roman, meanwhile, was trying to put some distance between himself, his family, and Gordon Saunders.  He also wanted to hide his involvement with Patricia Moreno.  He was saddened by her death, but it never should have happened in the first place.  He had been weak and given a second chance.  He wouldn’t blow it this time.

“Can I swim?” Gregory asked impatiently, though politely.

“Go ahead, but stay where I can see you,” Cara warned, giving him a look.

“Yes, mother,” he said before bounding off and jumping into the surf.

When he was out of earshot, Roman said, “I hope you’re kidding.”

“I don’t know, I didn’t get a chance to properly check… but it’s a possibility.”

Gregory was completely oblivious to his parent’s worries.  He was having way too much fun exploring the island.  Of course, he couldn’t go too far.  He was a dutiful and obedient child and he did everything his mother and father said.  He remained where they could see him at all times and never ran off or ignored them when it was time to go.  Roman had done well with Gregory, this much was sure, but would it carry over to when he became a teen?  Only time would tell.  His birthday was fast approaching.

“It was a false alarm,” Cara sighed, visibly relieved.  Having a ‘late in life’ baby was not really something Cara wanted.  She was completely happy with Gregory.

Roman completely agreed and resumed being affectionate.  When she had mentioned being pregnant, part of him wondered briefly it would even be his.  He knew about her little tryst with Shang.  It had been a piece of information Gordon had given in during their days of peace.  He didn’t bother with retaliation.  Cara had punished herself quite fitfully on her own.

On their last night at the beach, they all gathered and watched the waves.  Gregory was especially unhappy to be leaving, but he was excited about his birthday.  Once he was a true teenager, he could really start helping Roman out.  He couldn’t wait to see the businesses!

Gregory grew up well and found he liked being rich and popular.  He was still subdued and obedient, but he spoke more now, and found some confidence hidden beneath it all.  He was an Anderson, after all, he had no business lacking confidence.  He was a little sad to be progressing before his best friend, Lydia, though.  She was a year behind him.  He definitely missed her.


Note from Mao: Okay, I’ll admit it, the vacation was my way to test the new lot I had built.  I completely bulldozed that crappy bungalow lot.  I couldn’t stand it.  It was cheap and tacky, yet supposedly ‘high price’?  Puh-lease.  So now my rich sims really have a place to ‘live it up’.  Trust me.  Each little unit has a kitchen.  The places cost over 1k a night, LOL.  As for Gregory boy, he’s a popularity sim.  Not too bad.  Thankfully, not romance!  Also, Cara and Roman are rolling wants for one another again and are up to 3 bolts again.  Phew.  No more affairs, plz.  The pregnancy scare was not fun, her needs kept plummeting, but it turns out, she’s not pregnant!  Yay.


  1. Yes, no more affairs for Roman. However, he’s still got Gordon to worry about back home. Gregory grew up nicely and it’s nice to see Roman and Cara back on track. Aww, another baby wouldn’t be bad, however, it might send Cara for another loop that might land her in someone else’s bed. That would be bad.

    Yes, there’s still Gordon! ;) No more babies for these two. They’re both too old now and well, I kind of like them just having one.

  2. I just noticed that Cara and Mary-Sue are dressed the EXACT same way and have the SAME HAIR. D’oh! I swear I didn’t copy you Mao! This sucks. :(

    And poor Greg, being all stuffy. What else can you expect from two Knowledge Sims though?

    LOL, I am sure we are not the only ones to combine that outfit with that haircut! It’s just so suitable for professional women. ;) Greg isn’t just stuffy, he’s, well, yeah…

  3. aww Greg is sooo cute. He looks just like Cara. I love Cara I just hate Roman…they may love each other but I can’t sometimes wonder what if she would be better with someone else.

    Greg is cute, but I’m worried about his lack of chin! I’m actually rather fond of Roman, he looks a lot like Gordon, only with Ryu’s nose and the original Saunders’ skintone. He pretty much brought Cara into wealth and the high life. She wouldn’t be happy with anyone who wasn’t loaded, LOL. He was plenty nice to her when they were first dating/married.

  4. Don’t you just hate when that happens? Glad she’s not pregnant though!

    Me, too! I’m definitely happy they’re just having one, LOL!

  5. Roman is just so…so…blah! He deserves everything he gets! The little bugger…At least Cara gets a vacation out of it all. Gregory is adorable but I so hope he doesn’t become another Roman. Let’s hope his mom is more of an influence on him, yes? It is sorta cute to see Roman being affectionate with his wife after so frickin’ long.

    I like to think that most of Roman’s dysfunction is the fault of Alyssa, Ryu, and Thomas, LOL. I mean, that was a special bunch. Really. Gregory won’t be Roman, but he’s certainly obedient.
