Yu – Round 25: ‘Last Rites’

Filed under: Yu — Tags: , , , , , — Mao @ 9:19 pm

Tsung has outlived his younger brother, Shang, and his wife, Lilith, but he knows his time has finally come.  Zhou and River are nearing their twilight years while their only son, Fujin, is enjoying his childhood.

Tsung Yu knew his final days were upon him.  He’d outlived pretty much everyone, except his once best friend Gordon.  But Gordon would outlive them all with his… ‘unique’ condition.  Tsung was ready to move on, though.  He’d lived a good, long life; married the woman he loved; birthed two wonderful boys and enjoyed their own children.  He was ready.

Fujin, meanwhile, was just really starting to begin his life.  He’d made friends with Francis O`Hanlon and they would often have chats.  They were around the same age, but Francis lived in Aperture, so they didn’t get to hang out very often.  When they did, they spoke of traveling and nature.  Sometimes even science came up.  Francis loved coming over because Fujin had a backyard, grass, and quiet.

Tsung died quietly and painlessly.  His family was quite rocked by the event.  They all knew it had been coming, but no one wanted to face the loss.

Things were tense and quiet for awhile.  No one really knew what to say or do.  Zhou and River were about to end their lives as adults and embrace their elderly years.  It seemed strange to face mortality, to realize that someday, they would be like Tsung.  Would they be as ready?  Death was the farthest thing from Fujin’s mind.  He was looking forward to his teen birthday.  He missed his grandfather dearly, but knew how much Tsung had missed Lilith.

Fujin was overjoyed when he could finally go to highschool and be ‘cool’ like all the other teens.  Of course, Fujin’s idea of ‘cool’ wasn’t exactly on par with the general consensus.  He enjoyed being obscure and eccentric.  It suited him.  He was intelligent and witty, but very grounded.  He wanted a family someday, but for now?  He was content to make friends and focus on learning.

Zhou and River became older seemingly overnight.  River swore the wrinkles weren’t there the day before.  Her hair turned gray, fast, and instead of dyeing it, she embraced it.  Why bother?  Zhou was a little more vain, but his job forced him to be.  He was a TV personality by now and so, image was still very important.  The two looked as different as they always had, but over the years, had grown even closer.  It seemed eons ago that they were awkward teens, bumbling around their friendship turned relationship.


Note from Mao: TSUUUNG!  I was so sad.  :(   But he’s with Lilith now… Fujin is such a sweet kid.  I really enjoy him.


  1. Aww, RIP Tsung!

    Fujin grew up into a little cutie!

    And OMG, are Zhou and River really elders??? I can’t even believe it! LOL @ Zhou’s choice of clothing! :)

    I know, I can scarcely believe it myself! Zhou is still rockin’, even if he’s old. ;)

  2. I can’t believe River and Zhou are elders, either! It seems like they were just children!

    It really does…

  3. RIP Tsung.

    Wow, I can’t believe how far your hood has come. I wonder what Gordon is going to do now that all his friends are dying off.

    Fujin really grew up well.

    It’s really amazing. Generation five is coming into the world!

  4. It is so strange to think Zhou and River are now elders! It seems like just yesterday that they were teens and trying to figure out their feelings for each other.

    RIP Tsung. :( At least he and Lilith are back together. Fujin grew up into a cute teen!

    Tsung will be missed! Haha, it’s hard to believe so much time has passed.

  5. No! Tsuuuung! But, but… :(

    Wow, that’s, as far as Deaths are concerned, the end of generation two, huh? Gordon, because of his whole vampirism, is kinda being cut off from the rest of the hood, as far as friendships. I feel rather bad for him.

    I didn’t realize River and Zhou were that old! it shocked me that they’re elders now. Fujin is so cute, I wanna pinch his cheeks, lol.

    Poor Tsung, but now he is with Lilith! :( And yeah, I think you’re right. It is. Wow. LOL! Gordon will be fine. ;)

  6. How sad to see Tsung die! I’m glad he’s back with Lilith now.

    I can’t believe Fujin is a teen already. Even with your break, it seems like it wasn’t that long ago that he was born! He looks like he’s turned out well too.

    Zhou is pretty hot for an elder! You can hardly tell how old he is at all!

    It’s really strange. I can’t believe that it was so long ago that Mary, Derek, and the others were all around. How quickly time passes in The Sims 2 world. ;)

  7. NOOOOOOOO! D: WHY MUST THE GOOD DIE YOUNG!? …okay, technically, he isn’t young but still! I knew this day was going to come but I was not prepared for it. D: seriously. I’ve grown so attatched to Tsung…WHY!?

    AND NOW ZHOU IS A GEEZER?! D: Albeit a fashionable kickass one at that…Fujin, you have alot of work to do to carry on the AWESOMENESS of the Yu clan.
