Yu – Round 11: ‘Returning Home’

Filed under: Yu — Tags: , , , , , — Mao @ 9:53 pm

Eileen Yu is nearing the end of her days. Tsung is home to take over, but Shang is proving to be a difficult task to manage.

Eileen greets Tsung

Tsung was thrilled to finally be home, both because he knew his mother’s time was nearing an end and because he was looking forward to starting work. Unfortunately, architects and engineers weren’t being sought after and he found it was difficult to land his dream job.

Eileen was thrilled to have her eldest son home. Perhaps he could talk some sense into Shang?

Lilith confronts Tsung

Of course, Tsung had some unfinished business waiting for him when he arrived home in the form of a scowling Lilith at his door. She certainly wasn’t pleased with the stunt he pulled before they had all boarded their appropriate cabs for the haul home. Tsung was nonplussed by her anger.

“What’s your deal, Tsung?” Lilith began angrily, her signature glare at its highest intensity. “What the hell was that?”

He sighed and shrugged, as if it were nothing, “I like you, Lilith. I always have… even before… before Chuck. I guess it just took me awhile to act on it.”

She blinked, clearly not expecting that, but quickly regained her composure, “you’re full of it, Tsung. That isn’t even funny.”

“I’m not joking.”

Lilith witnesses Shang cheating

Tsung insisted that Lilith come inside so they could talk, unfortunately, Shang was in the middle of ‘entertaining’ one of his guests. Lilith was mortified. It was the second time she’d caught someone cheating on one of her family! She really didn’t need to deal with this. Tsung missed it, having excused himself to the rest room, and so he was surprised when he heard all the commotion.

Tsung sees Lilith angry

“…stay away from him! He has a girlfriend, you skank!” Lilith hissed, giving the girl a hard slap across the face. It wasn’t the girl’s fault, but no one ever blames the one actually cheating. That would make sense.

“Lilith! What are you doing?” Tsung demanded, stepping in the middle. He shooed the girl off and shook his head at the enraged alien. “She’s just a kid and you hit her! Her parents could sue.”

“Let them try, see if I care,” Lilith snarled, her brown eyes narrowed. “That’s what they get for raising a little skank.”

Tsung fell quiet, knowing better than to argue with Lilith over this. Even if she was wrong, she would fight to the very end, insisting that she was right. Tsung, meanwhile, made a note to have a little chat with his brother.

Tsung tries to talk to Shang

Unfortunately, getting through to Shang wasn’t as easy as Tsung had hoped. While he went on about the necessities of being a decent human being, Shang concentrated on beating his latest high score. That wasn’t the only score he was contemplating while his brother droned on.

“Shang, are you even listening? You can’t treat people like that,” Tsung was growing aggravated with his brother’s absolute disregard. “Shang!”

“Yeah, yeah,” Shang replied, rolling his blue eyes. “They’re just high school chicks, dude. Chill. I never made a commitment to anyone. That alien chick is just bonkers.”

“Lilith is a bit extreme, yes, but she has a point… have you been seeing Kate?”

“No more than any other chick,” Shang replied, pausing the game and turning to his brother. “Look, this is kinda important, so yeah. I need to focus. Right? Great. Nice talkin’ to ya, bro.”

Tsung sighed, defeated.

Tsung and Lilith kiss

Tsung was quite surprised when, a few days later, Lilith stopped by. Somehow they had gone from talking, to arguing, to well… not talking or arguing. Mouths were involved, yes, but certainly not for talking. It was an odd situation, but Tsung wasn’t going to question it. Lilith was an oddity, an unknown variable. Trying to figure her out would give even the most renowned scholars a massive headache. She was a contradiction wrapped up in impossibility.


  1. I’d marry Tsung if I were Lilith. He’s probably one of the more…stable…boys in the hood xD And aw! Eileen! She was so awesome…oh well. Now she can eat take out in heaven with Sun-Tzu. <3

    Mao edit: Tsung is pretty stable, but that isn’t saying much when it comes to this hood.

  3. Awww poor Eileen. She only ever lead a normal life, no mischief, no affairs, no law breaking. She reminds me of the original Yu family – Jun

    Mao edit: Yeah, Eileen had it fairly normal!

  4. Oh no, poor Eileen. I liked her a lot, she was so mellow and awesome! Poor Tusng! He should be with Lilith, she better stop being emo and get married, I’m about to hop in the game and slap her. (Thanks again for all your help Mao!)

    Mao edit: Bahaha, I’d like to see that, Josh! ;) No problem.

  5. With Eileen gone, I wonder if the Yu family will still be the ‘normal’ family. I see drama-rama coming into the house :)

    Mao edit: Oh yeah, especially if Lilith gets with Tsung. She’ll move into the house!

  6. Oh, I feel so sad that Eileen is gone. I really liked her and her simplistic no drama ways. She will be missed. :(

    Mao edit: Yeah, I will miss her… but the elders need to make room for the next gen. Too many sims, haha!

  7. Hopefully Lilith will come around and start to like Tsung. He seems like such a sweet, nice guy! It’s sad to see Eileen go to that big luau in the sky, but that gives more room for the next generation!

    Mao edit: Tsung really is, but Lilith has her own plans. Eileen will definitely be missed!

  8. Goodbye Eileen *sniffle* Such a sweet, normal lady.

    “no one ever blames the one actually cheating. That would make sense.” Ain’t that the truth?!

    Lilith seems to be mellowing in her adult years and she and Tsung would make such a nice couple. He seems completely devoted to her but is willing to give her space.

    Mao edit: Lilith is an oddball, that’ll never change. She’s mellowed only because she has to be secretive about what she’s up to. ;)
