Curve Ball Legacy
Ever wonder what the Sims will do left to their own devices? See the story of a young couple unfold right before your eyes.

Welcome to Sims Saturday, a Sims soap opera by writer and longtime RivalCast community member VelvetDove.

Well, I suppose it might be good that Roger and Judith have become teenagers, because they're getting wrapped up in their own social worlds and not paying as much attention to mine. Marshall asked me out on another date, which of course I accepted. I know, I can't blame it all on an act of insanity or random whim. He's a really nice person and we get along great. I know it's still weird, because technically he's the kids' uncle, which puts a whole other spin onto our family dynamic.
Making himself at home

I mean, I'm not wanting any sort of forever after, I just really enjoy spending time with him. I'm not sure what the kids are thinking about it at all. I half wish they would ask, just so I could just tell them blatantly that we're dating. Although I'm not completely sure if we're technically dating. Do we have to have a label? Do we have to declare stuff? Can we not just go on dates and enjoy each other's company without declaring, hey we're boyfriend/ girlfriend? I'm trying to not get too hung up on these things anyways, because then I might over think the whole situation. He's been coming over a lot, which ya know, like I said before I really miss having people who want to hang out and just spend time with someone who doesn't live at the house. But if he's here all the time, then why would I want to talk to him, he becomes a fixture. Some days I wish he would stay away more, so it's more exciting when he does come over. I don't know if he's just staying around more because he's worried about the baby, or something. Maybe he feels the need to be more of a father to his child than his brother was for his kids. I hadn't heard anything from Abdul at all since Marshall started spending more time over here. I don't know if they just don't talk or he just doesn't care. Maybe he doesn't know. I certainly am not going to call him out of the blue and say, hey I'm possibly dating your brother and I really don't care what you think about it. I heard from him about once a year, so Abdul and I have less than a relationship.

I was honestly surprised when I was rushed to the hospital and Marshall met me there. I'm not sure who called him, which adds to the whole, "Does the kids know something is going on between us?" I don't know, they would be seriously delusional to think that this baby would be Abdul's. Now when I had the twins, I was there all by myself. I was scared, and confused and wondering where Abdul was.

I mean if you are dating a girl and she's having your children, you might want to show up at the hospital. Maybe I have different views on things than other people, and what I think it right or appropriate isn't necessarily what other people think. That's the biggest problem with dealing with other people, honestly, if that what you see is right is not always what they see is right. It was really nice for me to have Marshall right there every step of the way. I don't know if because I'd been through it before, and knew what was going to happen, but this time the child birth went a lot nicer. It might of been also because I had surprise twins, which I had no idea I was having the first time, so that made it a tad difficult and scarier than it should of been. It could of been because I was left completely alone in the hospital and young and scared. But Marshall was amazing. He was right there the whole time. Him being there for me definitely made me think that maybe I should attempt to have a serious relationship with him. Marshall is really good to me.

When my mother passed away, I found a lot of journals that she had written, some of them were rather disturbing. She had a lot of problems I knew nothing about. I don't know if it was because I was, like my children, completely obsessed and concerned only with my own world, and didn't pay much attention to anyone else's. I know Jenny always teased me about not being true family, but I thought that was just because she thought I was too different from her. Looking through Mom's journals, I realized that maybe she had been telling me something else all along. Apparently Mom had spent time with this guy named Kevin, who she really liked. He knew magic and everything, which made me happy to hear, since now I can claim I have magic blood on both sides. It's kind of weird to find out things you thought were the way they are, really weren't. I had never heard mention of this Kevin guy before. I never knew that my father wasn't the same father as the rest of my brothers and sisters. Some things make a little more sense now, maybe, or I'm just stretching and putting meaning into it. I decided since I just found out I had a father and a family I never knew about, that maybe I should show respect for the past I knew nothing about. I insisted on calling my new son Kevin, just to never forget that this guy was a part of my mom's life and how they had actually loved each other. It's not completely right that something like that happen and his name has never been mentioned at all in my whole life. I did find out however that he had passed away while I was still young. Maybe I had met him or knew him, I don't know and will never know. It's not like I could ask mom, but I have to make sure Kevin's legacy is not forgotten.
