Avery Legacy - Chapter 128 - Leaving the Greek Life

Back at the Greek House:

Cannan Avery doesn't live at the greek house but you'd never know that. He has become a permanent fixture of late. He and Sophie are an item...

...much to the dismay of some of her housemates. They still remember the time she spent with Cannan's uncle Aric and apparently they don't think she has any business getting involved with young Cannan who is only a freshman. Many of the housemates are judgmental (much to this controllers dismay). Carina hates Sophie being with Cannan. She hates Keith being with Cyra. Cyra hates Carina but no one knows why for sure. Connor thinks Keith is a loser who should stay away from Cyra. Chance agrees. He also has a problem with Sophie and Cannan being together. Strangely enough Keith doesn't like their relationship either. Have I confused you? Well you should try keeping these P.I.T.A. sims from fighting all the time. It's a full time job. I try to remind them that their family. They tell me that families fight and to keep my controlling nose out of it. Don't they know that I am their Controller? I will kill them all if they don't straighten up. I make spare heirs for a reason so they had all best watch out.

Yes fighting continues to be a problem at the greek house. I should really charge admission.

But at the end of the day, when everyone is lying asleep in their beds, this controller finally gets some piece and quiet. To bad it won't last.

But here's something we all hope will last. Keith has just graduated with perfect grades. Before he leaves he keeps the promise he made to himself. He asks Cyra to become his wife. He's not altogether sure that she'll say yes. She could say no. He proposes in the bathroom because it's the only place the two of them can escape from the slappfest madness of the outside world.

A few years ago, Cyra would never have even considered getting married. She would have feared it with everything she had. But Cyra had just recently finished her Sophomore year. She had decided to make some changes in her life. Maybe romance isn't all that there is. Maybe there is something more. In the end, Cyra decides that family is more important that romance. When Keith asks her, she screams loudly, YES! YES, I would love nothing more than to become Mrs. Keith Tellerman. (BTW I rolled her aspiration and that's just where it fell. It's like she and Keith were meant to be. It made me very happy.)

Keith soon leaves school and heads back to Eden Falls. He does not go alone.

Chance has just graduated too. Although he has 'issues' with Keith, Chance is a sensible guy. He would rather live in a nice place with a roomie than a dump by himself.

Tagging along is another recent graduate Sophie Miguel. She hates to leave college and Cannan behind. She knows that he has years to go before graduation. She vows to wait for him. She hopes she won't get her heart broken yet again.

With several vacancies open, Carina moves in her love Afton Silverleaf. He moves into the greek house, into her room and into her bed. They are both extremely happy.

A short time later Connor Avery (G3L1 Heir) graduates from school with perfect grades. He moves back to the legacy lot with a little over 35K in cash. I believe he was a big man on campus too but I'm going to have to check on that one. So our main heir is home safe and sound. Soon there will be the pitter patter of little generation four feet running through the legacy manor. Of course you realize that when I say soon I mean 'it's coming' but not 'you'll see this immediately'. Lots of houses to play and still more kids to graduate before we go back to the legacy lot. This is what happens when you decided to play everyone and you are heading quickly towards 20 houses in the neighborhood. One round through takes forever.

Keith Tellerman (family), Chance Avery (knowledge) and Sophie Miguel (fortune) pool their resources and buy a lovely townhome to share. Keith immediately calls over Cyra to show her around. She will be living there in a little under two years after all.

Chance calls up his long time love Lisa Yang and invites her to move in. She accepts but Chance can tell that she was hesitant. Something is definitely wrong. He can feel it. They have somehow managed to grow apart. How did that happen? When did it happen? She visited him often while he was in school. She wouldn't have been seeing anyone else behind his back. Would she?

Lisa Yang - townie - Fortune Sim - Gemini - 4 neat, 7 outgoing, 8 active, 3 playful & 3 nice - longs to become a Chef of Staff

Sophie asks Cannan over to show him the place. She hopes that he will be a constant visitor. Her roommates both disapprove of her relationship with Cannan but she doesn't care. She has claimed the first floor as her own. She has her own room. Her own bed. Her own life. Her roommates can just mind their own business.

Cannan does stop by and visit as often as he can. He would come by more but he has papers to write and research to finish. Sophie clears out a drawer for Cannan to use when he visits. She likes having some of his things around her always. Of course Sophie soon begins to wonder if Cannan didn't leave her a little more than she expected. I wonder if Cannan is ready for fatherhood?

No one is ever really ready for parenthood. He loves her. He wants to marry her, right? Then he'll be pleased to be bringing another Avery into the world.

Wow ... 20 houses. I don't know how you keep up. I'd go NUTS!

*giggle* Too bad threatening your Sims with death didn't seem to make them behave. ;-) You'll have to actually kill one off and see if that works. *g* But great update! And wow, your Sims are absolutely gorgeous! :-D
