This is Jaric Scott. He is a Virgo with 10 neat, 1 outgoing, 7 active, 7 playful & 10 nice.
And this is his brother Daric. Daric is an Aries with 6 neat, 10 outgoing, 9 active, 9 playful and 1 nice.
Aaron stopped by from time to time to check up on things. Tracy and Arcadia are also frequent visitors. Tracy to check on Aric, Arcadia looking for a way to take out Aric.
Then one night someone else decided to take Aric out. Out of this world that is. Boris looked on as his brother was swept up up and away just as Ben had been those many long years ago.
Cosmic and Samuel were waiting to greet Aric upon his return. Samuel was very frightened by the entire experience. THIS is why they want him up there every night. Well I won't do it. You can't make me I tell you. I don't want THAT happening to me.
Aric was very distraught. He already had two sons to take care of. He couldn't handle another child right now. He couldn't handle anything right now. He cried all day long until something happened that made him snap out of it.
You see first Boris started a fire. That was really just a minor inconvenience. But Boris always said that the guys should eat a good meal before stargazing. Aric had assumed that the other guys would stop star gazing while he was, as he was, but Boris said no. It was tradition. We have always stargazed and we always will. So he prepared a new unburned meal for himself and Samuel. Samuel was trying very hard to come up with a reason not to go up there but Boris was having none of it. He had promised to do this one thing and do it he would. By the end of the meal Boris had Samuel thinking that if he didn't go he'd be kicked out. No one had bothered to tell Samuel that they couldn't. They hoped that someday the leach might just leave.
But instead it was Boris who left. Samuel was scared but thankful it wasn't him. Cosmic looked on in horror. Two uncles taken in two nights. How could it be possible.
[I, Aquatami - aka Tammy, hereby swear that I have never and will never cheat while on my legacy lot. I admit to using bright red cheating telescopes to get the Curious brothers abducted. I admit to trying to do the same to Quinton though it wasn't meant to be. But I swear that this just happened. Honest. I don't know how. I don't know why. It just happened.]
Cosmic got Samuel dancing to help calm him down. He'll be fine. Don't worry. He's the fourth Avery to go up in a ship. They always come back ok. Just a little pregnant that's all.
And sure enough Boris arrived home hours later nervous but unharmed....basically. Samuel couldn't believe that these fools would purposely do this to themselves. Why don't they just stop? Are they insane? Well he for one isn't going up there by himself. No way, no how.
The next morning Boris told his son Chris (G3L2 heir) all about his experience. Chris couldn't help but think of how cool this was. He hoped that he would be able to experience the same thing when he grows up.
Quinton came over as soon as he heard the news. His only regret in life is that he never got to meet the aliens. Oh, and that he doesn't have a child to carry on the Chin family name. Nathan dropped by and was fascinated by the entire thing. He couldn't wait to try to get abducted one day. Those knowledge sims just have a different way of looking at the world don't they.
Soon it was time for more birthdays. Jaric looks a lot like his dad did at this age.
Daric must have gotten more of his mom's genes. It think it's the chin. Otherwise they look a great deal alike.
Ben finally stops by to check on things. He doesn't look very orange. I thought they were oranger. But since he is only my second satellite death ever maybe I'm just not remembering well.
As Aric's due date drew near, Cosmic became very excited about getting a new little cousin. Aric had amazingly calmed down by this time too. He hadn't seen LaShandra in a while. He hadn't talked to Sophie in forever. Somehow it didn't matter right now. He had his boys and his family and that was all that mattered. He spent his spare time thinking about a happy future filled with his children but absent one leacherous roommate named Samuel.
And in the early morning hours the family rushed upstairs to find Aric holding his new baby girl. She has big black eyes and her father's brown hair. Aric named his daughter Callisto Avery.
Boris could only look at his growing belly in amazement. He knew that he too would soon have a new little one in his arms.
But first he would help take care of little Callisto while Aric got some rest.
The next day it was his turn.
Boris gave birth to a son. He named the boy Cetus Avery. (Cetus is an equatorial constellation south of Pisces and Aries for those wondering.)
Time sure flies and soon Callisto was a toddler. She's a Virgo with 10 neat, 1 outgoing, 10 active, 3 playful & 10 nice. If the playful were in outgoing she'd have almost perfect stats IMHO.
Not much later Cetus became a toddler. He's a Sagittarius with 0 neat, 7 outgoing, 10 active, 8 playful and 2 nice. (Ugh, nothing like a mean slob to spice up a neighborhood.)
Looking at Cetus made Boris long for so much more. He wanted his family to be together. He wanted to give Cetus a mother. He wanted the things that he had always been so afraid of. Maybe it's finally time. Maybe now Aric is ready to lead the family for a while.
And where was Cosmic during all this time. Where he was out at the Love'n Shop'n having his first kiss with Suzanne Carr. Suzanne also gave him his first dream date. One down and only forty-nine to go.
But there would be time for that later. Cosmic took his 9500 in scholarships and has moved off to college. He gave himself a little make over and is now one hot alien. There is definitely Avery genes in that package. Cosmic's girlfriend Suzanne has moved to college with him but she lives at a different dorm. This is good because Cosmic plans not just to date Suzanne but also 99 other people. That's right folks our man Cosmic plans on having 100 first dates AND 50 dream dates all while in college. Then he will move home and take up the family business (natural science and stargazing). He may be young but he knows what his future has in store for him.
What else lies in the Avery boys future? Stay tune, eventually is just around the corner.
