Anderson – Round 24: ‘It’s My Life, Pt. 2′

Filed under: Anderson — Tags: , , , — Mao @ 11:34 am

Nevio Anderson has spent his life losing wives and gaining lovers.  Adora doesn’t follow her father’s example–she wants a stable, functional family.

Despite the fact that Maggie was far off at Boreal Summit University, she and Adora still spoke often.  Adora felt for her old friend, she was so terribly unlucky in love that it was borderline ridiculous.  She listened to her woes and worries and convinced her against trying insane things like magic or silly gypsies.  Love will find her, Adora soothed.  She just needed to stop looking so hard.  What was the rush?

Meanwhile, Nevio was getting to know Kit Knight better.  They had met at his daughter, Isolde’s, wedding to Timothy O`Hanlon.  It didn’t take long for them to move to the bedroom.  He was surprised, Kit was the instigator.  She was even engaged!  He wasn’t about to look a gift horse in the mouth, though.  His birthday was fast approaching and Kit was still plenty young and plenty feisty.  How much longer could he hope to catch young ones like her?

Nevio’s big life change came upon him almost too fast.  His hair grayed and his wrinkles became pronounced.  Still, he thought as he looked in the mirror, I’m quite a dapper old man.  And he was.  None of his charm had left him and the gray hair gave him a more pronounced charisma.  He still had it.  Unfortunately, he wasn’t sure if his old heart still did.  He hadn’t always been this way… a long time ago, he had loved and lost.  Lacie.  He had loved her, even if she was horrible, contemptible, and a complete gold digger.  Roman had been right, but Nevio didn’t care.  He truly loved Lacie.

He was beginning to think that he might want to try again, to settle down in his golden years and find someone to do that with.  He had his two daughters and they were more than enough for him.  He wasn’t looking for more children, but true, faithful companionship.  He called over one of his long-time flings.  She wasn’t like him, she was sweet and caring and down-to-earth… and blonde.  Very blonde.  She also wasn’t young enough to be stupid and foolish.  She didn’t seem to care about his money.

Adora was happy to see her father turning over a new leaf.  The last time he considered marriage, well, everyone still whispered about how that ended.  This time would be different, this time it would be for love, not to help his cheating twin brother!  Audrey moved in and was happy to see that sticking with Nevio all this time was paying off.  They decided to make it quick and dirty, to save themselves the stress.  This would be Nevio’s third time down the aisle, it had pretty much lost all its pomp and cirsumstance.  Audrey also didn’t want to deal with the fuss.

So they were married, quietly, at night, with the ocean hitting against the shoreline behind them.  It was peaceful and very tranquil, lowkey, like Audrey, like Nevio was hoping to eventually become.

Adora liked Audrey, she was nice and not too young, plus she was very grounded.  She didn’t worry about silly things and she didn’t run around the house, wasting their money or redecorating or anything.  She just sort of settled into their routinue as if she’d always been there, in the background.  They all got along great.  Adora was happy to have another woman in the house again!

Especially since Adora was now an adult.  She had bypassed college in favor of pursuing her dream of being the ultimate matriarch, like her grandmother Alyssa, and also having a family.  She didn’t have any prospects yet, but that would come with time.  Until then, she’d grill her new step-mom on the interesting asides of being an adult female sim in the big, bad world.

Audrey soon had her own news to share, she was pregnant.  Panic rose in Nevio, he hadn’t really anticipated having another child.  Was he too old to raise a toddler?  But Audrey seemed happy and so her happiness spread to him.  Adora was also quite pleased, that meant she could practice her baby care on her little half-brother!  Unfortunately, it wasn’t meant to be.  It would seem Nevio was cursed, never to keep a wife for any long amount of time… poor Nevio.

Adora felt horrible.  She had been out getting groceries and Nevio had been at work.  When she arrived home, Audrey was already dead.  The coroner said that she’d been sick too long and fell to the flu.  Her pregnant state had weakened her considerably.  Neither Nevio nor Adora had noticed!  They both felt a great loss.  Poor Nevio, he was truly cursed.

——————-

Note from Mao: Nevio is TOTALLY the Black Widower.  I swear, he IS!  This guy is either cursed or subconsciously sinister.  I even joked to my fiance that Audrey made it past the wedding, that she’d surely last.  Nope.  She made it to the first trimester of her pregnancy and just dropped dead.  She was barely even sick!  Adora had chicken soup waiting for her when she awoke.  Augh.  I think that hack makes pregnant women have like, a 90% of death daily or something.  Poor Audrey.

The only reason Nevio got married was because the dang want would NOT go away after he aged.  It was annoying.  I didn’t even lock it.  Audrey was the only non-Romance lover he had.  I even aged her halfway through adulthood.  Oh well, LOL!

  1. Oh, wow! He IS cursed!!! How awful for him though, he really seemed to want to make a go of it with Audrey. Just think of the rumors going around your town, “Don’t marry Nevio or you’ll DIE!” LOL!!! Poor guy.

    Do you have realistic sickness in? You know, I didn’t even know pregnant women could get sick. I guess you’ve proved that they can, twice now, right? Eeek!

    Adora has grown up into quite the fine and proper young lady! Did you grow her up to YA, or just straight to adult?

    Hahaha, yeah, poor Nevio! He just has no luck… yep, I do. My pregnant women have always gotten sick, but it was never a big deal until this hack! Now I panic, LOL. Chicken Soup, STAT! Adora is an adult. I usually just skip the YA stage for those skipping college. She was older than Maggie, anyway.

  2. …So what’s causing it? The newest InTeen? I’m wondering if I should install it after all. I don’t want all my pregnant women to die. Adora is quite a beautiful young lady. So she stayed home and aged up, huh? I hope the Nevio curse can’t be inherited…

    No worries, it isn’t Inteen. It’s the Realistic Sickness hack from MATY! It really does a number on pregnant sims, sheesh.

  3. Maggie and Adora are BBFs and it is adorable. They’re a bit different but it works. I can so see Adora as the logical, gentle one who…I dunno, holds Maggie’s hair when she pukes. Kiiiit, you are so stuuuupid. D: Not gonna lie though, they do look hot together. I find it weird…out of all those ladies you’ve been with, you loved the one who was AWFUL for you? You’re weird, Nevio. Weird. Ooh. A new lady. She does look nice. …Did. xD oh lord, Nevio could very well be your next Black Widow and give Aurora a run for her money.

    Haha, they are an odd couple! LOL at the puking. Maggie is the Knowledge sim of the two, so she does have common sense, Adora is definitely like a matriarch! Nevio has issues, we’ve known that since day one, LOL. Maybe I should bring in Aurora to teach Nevio a lesson on love… ahahaha

  4. Wow, Nevio’s the next Black Widower! I think Lacie might’ve put a curse on Nevio when she left.. this is what, the second wife that’s died on him? Poor Nevio, all he wanted was a family…

    Haha, Lacie could’ve! She was a bit of a witch, but perhaps not that kind of witch. ;)

  6. Oh, wow, I hadn’t considered sick pregnant Sims with that Realistic Sickness hack. I’m dreading it already. Poor Audrey!

    Adora looks very sophisticated now!

    I think I (or Nevio) have intensely bad luck. Just make sure you have some chicken soup on hand! Adora turned out very well. :)

  7. Oh my GOODNESS. (Sorry I haven’t been commenting, Mao, but I’m getting back into my lurker ways! D:)

    Adora is so pretty as an adult. ^_^

    I CAN’T BELIEVE SHE DIED! That’s some craziness right there. INSANITY. What the hell makes these pregnant women die?!?!

    Bad Josh, no lurking! :P Nevio is seriously cursed. It is the Realistic Illness Hack!
