Yu – Round 14: ‘Lilith’s Choice, End’

Filed under: Yu — Tags: , , , , , , , — Mao @ 12:37 pm

Tsung Yu is quite the successful architect and thanks to Gordon Saunders, work is rolling in. Lilith is having her own kind of success while Zhou finds himself enjoying the freedoms allowed to him.

“Okay, one last time… are you sure you want to do this? Bringing the dead back can be pretty risky.”

“The court date is set and she’s our star witness, of course I’m sure.”

“Ha, okay, let’s do this then. No promises, remember. This is my first time…”

Much to Lilith’s surprise, her contraption actually worked. She spoke to death directly and after offering up some personal affects of Katy’s and the enveloped filled with 10k from Ryu, Katy appeared. It took her a moment or two to realize she was alive and after that, she was walking on cloud nine.

“Welcome back, Katy.” Lilith said, beaming with pride. It worked, it really worked!

Lilith excused herself. Tsung would be home soon and she’d need to distract him while Ryu and Katy tiptoed out the back.

“I’m really back, wow,” Katy said, baffled. “And you, you’re… my age.. how much time?”

“Derek is an elder and married to Mary O`Hanlon with three children, Chuck is dead, and Damien has a wife and two children.” Ryu explained quickly. “I’m sorry to do this to you, Katy, but we have to leave.”

“Leave?”

“We’re relocating you to Aperture until the trial. I’ll have to explain everything there. We can’t remain here for much longer, if Tsung finds us, he might tell Gordon.”

“Gordon?”

“Later,” Ryu said, leading Katy out of the room. “Lets go.”

Tsung was completely oblivious to his wife’s extracurricular activities. He had absolutely no idea that Katy Saunders had returned and with her, information on her death and the truth behind Janine Saunders. He also had no idea that it would likely affect his business dealings with his best friend Gordon. Instead, he was too busy scolding his son for cheating at chess.

“Did you just cheat?”

“No,” Zhou replied without a hint of guilt. “I didn’t.”

“You did!” Tsung replied, his eyes wide. “You cheated!”

“I did not! You can’t prove it!”

“Yes you did and I can; your piece was there and now it’s over here and that’s an illegal move, Zhou!” Tsung sighed, exasperated. “What has Lilith been teaching you?”

Not only was his son learning the early ways of being a conman, but his brother was readying himself for a political scandal. Shang stopped by to visit his older brother and to boast about his recent ‘conquest’. Tsung was hardly impressed.

“You did what?!” Tsung nearly yelled, quickly lowering his voice so Lilith wouldn’t hear. “Are you insane? Do you realize how twisted that is, Shang? Ryu is a Yu, he’s related to us, albeit distantly…but still! And she’s the mayor! What’s wrong with you?”

Shang shrugged, “don’t hate, Tsung! You’re killing my high.”

“I’m going to kill you if you keep insisting on sleeping with every woman in Boreal Springs!”

“Nah, don’t worry,” Shang replied easily, a smile on his face. “I’m not gonna do anything to Lilith.”

Tsung’s face dropped–he couldn’t believe the ignorance of his own brother. Were they even related?

Lilith found out she was pregnant again. As with the last time, she had to take off work and spend her days waddling around the house. Of course, when Tsung and Zhou were fast asleep, she would steal out into the night and travel to Aperture to talk to Katy. It was her discovery, after all! She had to monitor her progress and everything. She couldn’t just leave it to Ryu, goodness only knows how he’d mess it up…

“Are you eating cake… for breakfast?” Tsung asked skeptically, giving Lilith an odd look. “Is that even healthy?”

“Don’t be stupid, Tsung,” Lilith shot back. “I’m pregnant, healthy isn’t a concern. As long as it’s chocolate, we’re good.”

He sighed, “the baby is going to come out a diabetic.”

Lilith shrugged, “at least it got to live large in the womb!”

When Zhou wasn’t getting scolded for cheating at chess, he was playing video games with River. Of course, being beat by a girl was simply unacceptable and he made this fact clear. River, however, was adamant that girls could be just as good, if not better, than boys. Their rivalry at the game became heated and both their competitive natures finally had a chance to shine.

In the end, it came out a tie, much to both children’s chagrin.

Mr. Miyagi was an old cat, a really really old cat. So it wasn’t any surprise when his time came. He had been around for the birth of both Tsung and Shang, so Tsung was reasonably saddened by the loss. Mr. Miyagi just seemed happy to get out of this crazy voodoo house.

Lilith eventually gave birth to another healthy, baby boy named Fou-Lu. He looked almost identical to Zhou when he had been that age, but he had Eileen’s blue eyes. Lilith was thankful none of her children inherited her skin. She didn’t need any extra attention on the house with the whole Katy resurrection thing happening. Tsung was bound to find out eventually and boy he wouldn’t be happy…

Note from Mao: Whew, getting Katy back was a pain, but I couldn’t drop it from the storyline as the sims had spent too much time developing it.  If you don’t recognize the Fou-Lu name, then you’ve never played Breath of Fire 4. ;)   I’ll miss Mr. Miyagi, sniff.

  1. So she is really back. That’s awesome. Let the drama floooooow!

    But poor Tsung, really. His brother is a manwhore, his wife is trying to destroy his business dealings and his son is learning bad things xD Poor poor Tsung. He doesn’t deserve any of this! He’s a good man!

    Awww! Bye, Mr. Miyagi! such a cute kitty…living in such a strange house.

    Hahaha, that’s what Tsung gets for marrying Lilith! He drug his own grave. ;)

  2. I’m glad Katy’s back. But how can you have a murder trial if the victim is alive? Nice to see another baby being born in BS. :D

    Well, technically, she was killed and they have proof. So there’s always that. It will just be fun proving she’s really Katy Saunders!

  4. You’ve inspired me to get a games station for the kids in my games – I never get them normally because they’re always so obsessed with it, but I love how your characters play with it all the time.
    Poor Katy, she looked really sad and slightly confused when she was talking to Ryu.

    Haha, I always have issues with computers. It drives me insane! Katy is quite confused, she was kinda dead and all. It’ll take a bit for her to get back into the swing of things.

  5. Wasn’t Lilith on birth control?

    Oh my god, Katys back from the dead! Wait… is she still pregnant? With Dereks kid/s?
    Let the drama unfold!

    Er, yeah… between rounds, I kinda forgot to put her on the pill. She’s on it now, though! And yes, Katy is still pregnant… mwahaha.

  6. Wow! Katy is back! I’m taking it she’s not still pregnant? Poor baby. It’s like a different world to her now. Everyone’s grown up and different. Hopefully she’ll be able to adjust!

    Haha, nope, she’s still pregnant. But it’ll take some adjusting for sure.

  7. Katy’s back and not a zombie! I wonder what information she has for the investigation of the criminal elements in Boreal Springs ;-)

    Haha, quite a bit, I’m sure!

  8. Katy has so much to catch up on since her untimely demise, she doesn’t even know half the people in town anymore, and she’s pregnant on top of being the star witness at her own murder trial!

    “don’t hate, Tsung! You’re killing my high.” I love Shang, he cracks me up!

    Fou-Lu really is a cutie

    The dialogue that Shang comes up with cracks me up, too! Poor Katy. She’s not going to have an easy time of it.

  9. Mao,

    I’ve been catching up on your blog for the past week. I’m really enjoying it. I like how you worked the resurrection phone (I should know the real name of it!) into the plot. I’m looking forward to reading more.

    Hey there, thanks! I’m glad you’re enjoying it.
