Yu – Round 11: ‘Returning Home’

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

Lilith leaves in the night

Of course, Lilith was also a creature of impulse. She acted first and thought later. Unfortunately, this impulse would beget dire consequences. She wasn’t even sure she liked Tsung… so why did she sleep with him? Wasn’t she supposed to be focusing on her true goal? She cursed herself quietly and snuck out in the night.

Tsung calms

Tsung tried to contact Lilith after that night, but found that she refused to come to the phone. He wasn’t about to visit, either. That would be incredibly intrusive. Even so, he couldn’t help but want to know what was going on. He spent his free time playing his viola, relaxing and trying not to think of Lilith, his brother, or their fading mother. The world disappeared in a smooth and sorrowful viola solo.

Eileen talks to Tsung

Eileen sat Tsung down one morning and decide to have a chat with her eldest son. He wasn’t her first or eldest child, really, but he was going to take over the house, so he was the heir. Mary had her own family and her own place to tend to. It was important that she explain to Tsung everything being the ‘heir’ entailed.

“You need to keep an eye on your brother, too,” she finished softly, worriedly. “He’s… not like us. I’m not sure where he gets it.”

“I’ll try,” Tsung replied. “But I’m not sure it’ll work.”

“Give him time, he’ll mature. Everyone does eventually.”

Tsung proposes to Lilith

Of course, Eileen was right. Everyone had to mature at some point. It seemed that Lilith had reached that point, as she finally came to the phone and agreed to come over. Just to talk… nothing else. Not that Tsung would ever ask anything else of her, he hadn’t even expected nor initiated what had happened before. Of course, the kind of talking he wanted to do wasn’t what Lilith expected.

“Are you freaking nuts?” Lilith said in complete disbelief.

“No,” Tsung replied calmly. “I mean it, Lilith. I’ve liked you–been in love with you–for years.”

“But… marriage, Tsung? Seriously?” She shook her head. “I’m not… I mean, marriage? What? I don’t even know how I feel about this, you, us, whatever this is. I can’t even think right now. I feel… sick.”

“I’m sorry,” Tsung was truly apologetic. He watched in horror as her face paled and her eyes became dazed. “I… I didn’t meant to rush you or startle you. I just–”

Lilith pushed away from the table, “no… no more. That’s enough. I just… I can’t think about this now.”

“Then later, think about it later. But at least think about it, Lilith. What are you going to do? Live with your mother forever?”

Eileen passes on

Sometime after the disastrous dinner with Lilith, Tsung suffered another tragedy. Florence had heard about the thing between Lilith and Tsung and was dragging her daughter over only to witness the death of her beloved friend. Tsung and Shang were beside themselves with grief. Eileen went happy, but she was the glue that held everything together. What were they going to do without her? Mary had her children, Derek, Gina… but Tsung and Shang? They only had each other.

Note from Mao: Still trying to adjust to the insanity that is wordpress 2.5! Madness, seriously. Anyway, Eileen is dead. ‘Tis a sad, sad day for the Yu family. She’s my first G1 Adult to die. :( You will be missed, Eileen!! The thing between Tsung and Lilith was purely want driven.

  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. ;)
