Instead of leaving the house like a normal person after being dumped, Jerome just ran around pouting about it and seeking bitter revenge.
Jerome: She broke up with me so I broke her computer.
Jerome: I’m also using her toothbrush.
Jerome: Bahaha, now I’m deleting her Zelda saves, using all her warp whistles in Mario, and turning her Paragon into a Renegade in Mass Effect. Take THAT.
You DO remember that YOU’RE the one who ruined your relationship, right? Now either leave or make yourself useful by doing some laundry or something.
Peaches has to work on her body to gain celebrity points, so she goes to the gym. Despite her lack of athletic points, somehow she can run on the treadmill like a pro.
Marian Wolff (Rufus Tiger’s granddaughter): How… is… she… DOING THAT?
The Sunset Valley gym may look a little different. That’s because a while back I got bored and updated it along with the library.
Spec Wildhorse is there looking relatively normal but I’m pretty sure he’s just trying to sneak a peek at his sister. You aren’t fooling anyone, creeper.
Spec Wildhorse: You are so cruel to me.
And now, sadly…
Death often takes us by surprise, and even though Sage was 100 years old, I was not expecting her to die yet. She’d somehow racked up over 400,000 lifetime happiness points (probably from all the moves I did with her) so I guess I kind of figured that made her immortal.
Sage Moonblood: You couldn’t have let me get my two last drinks in, could you?
Of course Peaches is at the gym while this is going on and Hermione is working hard at work, so the only ones around to mourn her are the cats.
Spahhhkles: But the food bowl just became empty waaaaaaaah.
Cheshy: I smell yogurt.
Ugh, seriously Grim?
Grim Reaper: The drycleaner lost my robe, alright? This is all I have until another one can be sewn from the hair of dead people.
Sage Moonblood: Can we just get on with this please?
Manmaid: Don’t worry! I’m here with a blank thought bubble to make everything better!
Grim Reaper: Oh look, Sage, a manmaid is here for your death. How lovely.
Sage Moonblood: I wish the radio wasn’t broken. I would’ve liked to listen to it one final time.
Manmaid: *sniff* That is so tragic.
Grim Reaper: It kind of is, yeah.
Sage Moonblood: Well, let’s do this, Grimmy. They have bars in the afterlife, right?
Grim Reaper: Hell yeah. You think I’d want to hang around there so much if there weren’t?
Manmaid: That sounds like a good time *sniff*
RIP Sage Moonblood :(
When Hermione gets home, she realizes something’s missing.
Hermione: My heart aches so badly. Life will never be the same.
Grim Reaper: Don’t be sad, Hermione. You’ll see her again soon. For now, let’s go have some fun.
Hermione: What do you mean?
Grim Reaper: BLONK LOL.
Hermione: Oh, you asked for it, Reaper!
Grim Reaper: Ahaha, your face! Your face was priceless!
Hermione: At least I HAVE a face! Ha!
Grim Reaper: Good one!
Hermione: I’m clever, I know.
Grim Reaper: G2G now!
And just like that, he was gone.
Hermione: That was for you, Sage.
Later, when Peaches returns from the gym, she receives the bad news.
Peaches Honeyblossom: Oh, mommy!
Hermione: What? I’m right here. Oh… Oh yeah :(
Hermione: Honey, it’s going to be okay. Don’t pity the dead. Pity the living, and, above all, those who live without love.
Peaches Honeyblossom: Why are you quoting Dumbledore, mom?
Hermione: It’s extremely good for my charisma skill. Anyway, too much sadness isn’t good for the baby.
Peaches Honeyblossom: Uh… what baby?
Hermione: Yours! You’re pregnant aren’t you?
Peaches Honeyblossom: Last time I checked, no.
The pregnant one was actually Sage. I don’t know why, but something caused Hermione and Sage to be able to get knocked up. I’ve had to end 4 pregnancies since 7 and Spec were born, three of which were elder pregnancies.
Hermione: She was carrying my child when she died! THAT IS AWFUL.
Actually, she wasn’t. I caught it in time…
Peaches Honeyblossom: Besides, mom, gross.
Hermione: Yeah, I suppose so.
Peaches Honeyblossom: I’ll go to the grocery store and pick up some things to help us cope.
She comes back with mood candles and bubble bath. Hermione relaxes for the rest of the night.
Peaches seems to be taking it harder.
Peaches Honeyblossom: Ugh, everything is BROKEN. First the computer, then the dishwasher, then the sink. I miss my mom :(
Hermione: I miss Sage. So much.
Some things can just be taken care of later.
Peaches takes it upon herself to move Sage’s remains to the Creeper graveyard. There, she finds some long lost family members.
Marlene: You know, I’m not related by blood, 7, if you ever want to… you know.
Apparently death has turned Marlene into a skank.
Peaches and her brother decide to spend some time together in honor of their mother.
Peaches Honeyblossom: You think mom’s having a good time with the Grim Reaper right now?
7: Definitely. I bet she’s making them mountains of drinks as we speak.
7 does smile, see!
He also loved his mother very much :(
But life must go on and I realize that Hermione’s time will be coming soon as well, meaning we need to get a move on with her promotions.
We hold another campaign fundraiser and invite the current Leader of the Free World so Hermione can get to know her better.
Hermione: I’ll be taking your job in about two days.
LotFW: Ahaha, I hope so because I am so tired of this job!
Of course the family is invited, including Tawana, who 7 dumped as soon as he moved out.
Tawana: Hey guys!
Spec Wildhorse: I can’t believe he would let that go.
Spec is still with Lisa.
Tawana: Such a shame because he looks like Orlando Bloom and I’d love to have a piece of that.
He does not. But anyway, Tabooger is still single.
Tabooger: I don’t know why. I’m pretty and talented and amazing.
I don’t either. It worries me.
Cassidy: You know who else is still single? ME. You know why? BECAUSE YOU SAID I WOULD BE JOINING THE LEGACY.
You will be! I’m just waiting for a perfect moment.
Lord Voldemort: I don’t know why I was invited to this crap. I’m anti-Leader of the Free World. I thought everyone knew this.
Also invited was Vivian, the girl who just had her cousin’s baby. He had the audacity to dump her before it was born too. That’s just wrong. If you’re going to mate with your cousin, at least follow through with it.
Vivian: I’m not the only one fooling around with my cousin though. I heard some THINGS about 7.
Oh right! He got dumped by Rufus Tiger’s granddaughter and now he’s stalking her.
Peaches gravitates towards a guy standing in the corner. Maybe it’s the skin tight shirt.
Peaches Honeyblossom: You look extremely uncomfortable, and not because your shirt is three times too small.
Vito: You caught me. I’m kind of a loner… I’m not really sure why I decided going to a party would be a good idea.
Peaches Honeyblossom: Well let’s get some fresh air then, shall we? Unless maybe you’d just like to be alone, in which case I’ll leave you alone. I’m sorry, I shouldn’t have bothered you. I’ll just go freshen up the veggie rolls and let you decid–
Vito: Don’t worry. I’d love to get some fresh air with you.
Peaches Honeyblossom: Oh. Okay.
Vito: My name is Vito, by the way. What’s yours?
Peaches Honeyblossom: I’m Peaches. Sorry about the… the paparazzi. They’re annoying. I understand if you don’t want to… you know, hang out now. It probably isn’t worth it.
Vito: I don’t know why you seem so insecure, Peaches, because you’re the most beautiful woman I have ever seen. Anything is worth it as long as I get to see you.
Peaches Honeyblossom: That was the sweetest thing I’ve ever heard, Vito.
Peaches Honeyblossom: I can’t do this.
Vito: Um… What?
Vito: Peaches, I didn’t mean any disrespect. I know we just met and maybe I was coming on too strong, so I’m sorry if I offended you. A girl as beautiful as you, though… I’d be stupid if I didn’t try. I hope you understand. Can we just sit?
Peaches Honeyblossom: Yeah. Yeah, we can.
Peaches Honeyblossom: I’m sorry, Vito. It’s just that I’ve been hurt, and…
Vito: You don’t have to explain or bring up anything you don’t want to remember. We can leave those horrible memories in the past and focus on the future.
I’m deleting those memories from your scrapbook as you speak :3
Vito: For now, let’s just sit here and enjoy the fresh air.
Peaches Honeyblossom: That’s a wonderful idea.
Vito: You might find that I’m full of them.
That’s it for this chapter! Will Peaches learn to trust Vito and bring in the next generation? Will any of the other kids get married and have babies or will the entire future of the Creepers rest on Peaches’ shoulders and the shoulders of the inbreeders? Will Hermione reach her goal before she dies? HOW BADLY DO YOU MISS SAGE? D:
Happy simming! <3
