Anderson 2 – Round 10: ‘Every You, Every Me, Pt. 4′

Filed under: Anderson — Tags: , , , — Mao @ 11:47 am

Florence Anderson is nearly an elder and thinks life has gone pretty well. She isn’t aware of her partner, Shaniqua’s, infidelities. Kate is blissfully oblivious to everything.


Florence isn't convinced

Despite the fact that Janine had tried to warn Florence about Shaniqua’s little ‘fling’, Florence continued on like nothing was wrong. When would Shaniqua have time? Anytime Florence came home, she was busy entertaining Kate. She would never do something like that with their daughter in the house, nor would she have done it with the twins. Especially not after what happened to Lilith!

Florence was convinced her mother was delusional.

Shaniqua meets Ravi

Of course, she was wrong. Shaniqua was having an affair. It wasn’t a ‘one night stand’ deal, but an ongoing relationship. It may not have been as emotionally invested as the one she shared with Florence, but that was a technicality. In recent times, Shaniqua had spent more time with Ravi than Florence.

She felt badly about that, but Ravi was always happy to see to her needs. He wasn’t busy at work or preoccupied with children. He was also a little differently made…

Gina visits Shaniqua

Gina had heard the rumors flying around about her twin and decided to pay her a visit. The two had once been inseparable, but adult life had made them both far too busy. They were still twins, though, and Gina was concerned.

“Is it true, Shaniqua?”

Shaniqua gave her twin a look, “how can you ask me something like that?”

“Because I know you,” Gina replied quickly. “Why are you doing this? It’s going to end badly.”

“She doesn’t ever have to know…”

Gina sighed, “yes, she does. And eventually, she’ll find out. You might want to stop it now and cut your losses while you still can. You should tell her.”

Kate is a teen

Kate’s birthday passed and she was completely oblivious to the tensions surrounding her parents. She was knowledge-minded like her mother, but her true passion was cooking. She enjoyed learning everything she possibly could about it. Maybe someday she could even have some sort of business or cooking show. She dreamed of winning a cooking contest and studied the culinary arts every chance she got.

Florence asks Shaniqua

Unnerved by the things being said around the suburb, Florence decided to confront Shaniqua. Of course, Shaniqua talked her way out of it. That’s what people like her did, they smooth talked their way out of anything disagreeable. It was an art form she had perfected over the years. It worked, of course. Florence just didn’t have it in her to believe that Shaniqua would do something like that. She craved stability and given what a dysfunctional mess her family was, wasn’t about to give up her idea of her own happy home.

Kate kisses Shang

Kate, meanwhile, was making her own kind of happiness. She had a crush on Shang Yu since she had been a little girl. Now she was old enough to let him know. She knew he was known as a womanizer–they went to the same Academy, after all–but she didn’t care. She was young and foolish. She was still under the impression people could change.

Florence is not pleased

Florence wasn’t so pleased by her daughter’s youthful naivety. She had no idea that Kate was seeing Shang until she came home one evening. Needless to say, he was chased out of the house with some angry words and Kate was sent to her room. Kate was far too young to be getting messed up in that business and Shang was the last person Florence wanted her to date. Even she knew he wasn’t much for commitment when it came to girls.


Note from Mao: Shang and Kate have two bolts and yes, they actually have been friends since childhood. I just never got a picture of them together. Poor Kate, she has no idea what she’s getting into…


  1. Oh no Kate, don’t go there… if you want a blissfull life, choose another guy!

    Mao edit: Haha, I don’t think she’s listening. ;)

  2. What interaction is the rose? Is that a FT one?

    Mao edit: Yup, it is exclusive to Romance Sims. It’s called ‘Smooth Talk’.

  3. I feel so bad for Florence! Bad Shaniqua!
    Shang is going to break up w/ Katie if they even HAVE a real relationship, that is. She’ll end up like her cousin(?) Sara, in terms of relationships. Spaeking of Sara, Uni is next!!! SHe grew up in a dress right? That’ll be interesting…

    Mao edit: Yup, Uni is next. Shang and Katie aren’t really going steady, so there’s no messy break up. ;)

  4. Kate is just asking for trouble.

    Mao edit: Very true.

  5. So, Kate and Shang. I could sort of see it coming, since they’re the only two kids in the neighbourhood who are relatively close in age and not related. Poor Kate, she’s definately going to end up having her heart broken, but I guess it’s her own fault for being so naive. She’s really pretty – do you plan on letting her have kids?

    I can hardly wait for the University update.

    Mao edit: I’m trying not to control my sims, so it is completely up to Kate whether or not she has offspring. Well, her or Inteen kicking in… hee. Kate looks exactly like Florence, only with Shaniqua’s skintone. A pretty combo, to be sure.

  6. Double posting, bad i know. But i was just wondering how long you play each round?

    Mao edit: I play four days at each house. You can find the rest of my little play guidelines here.

  7. In a minute your whole hood is going to be related. but anyways nice update.

    Mao edit: Haha, yeah, unfortunately… that means time to marry townies.

  8. Well, like mother like daughter I s’pose. Poor Florence is heading for heartbreak and now Kate is too. So sad for them both! Bad Shaniqua and Shang!

    Mao edit: That’s true, I hadn’t thought about that!

    Comment by Mandie — April 5, 2008 @ 7:06 am

  9. Oh no, Poor Kate, and poor Florence. Shaniqua is such a hussy for smooth talking her like that! (I want FT so badly. D: ) I hope Kate wises up, and isn’t he leaving for Uni soon? :)

    Mao edit: Shang will leave this upcoming round for Uni and Kate may or may not go with him, but she probably will.

  10. Kate and Shang… deja vu of Ryu and Alyssa! Except Florence was the angry parent and not Thomas for once!

    Mao edit: Haha, well, actually this time it’s mutual. ;)

  12. Wow! I just read through the whole site, and your storylines are GREAT! It is a bit like Bold and The Beautiful, lol, cause everyone is related! HAHA but I still love it :)

    Oh, and also, where do you get most of your clothes and hairs from? They are really cool!

    Mao edit: LOL! Soon they will be. :P I’m sorry, I don’t really download anymore… but when I do, I don’t usually keep track. If you have something specific, I can try and figure it out.

  13. Oh no! Poor Florence and poor Kate are both definitely heading for a heartbreak. That Shang boy is not the type to stick with one girl, and fortunately it’s just puppy love. But what will happen with Shaniqua? She already has a family :-(

    Mao edit: Yeah, Shaniqua and Florence’s situation is definitely worse. Only time will tell, I guess.

  14. Wise words from Gina, she’s always so normal and down to earth :) I’m starting to feel bad for Florence, so oblivious and now her daughter is involved with Shang

    Mao edit: Hehe, yeah. Gina is the neighborhood voice of reason! Poor Florence hasn’t had an easy life.

  15. I hope Shang doesn’t end up breaking her heart
