Sims Saturday: Faith In The Mistakes
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.

I have to admit, with all the disappointment I've had with my oldest two, I've very much neglected my youngest. I know I'm human, and I make mistakes. I'm sure that was partially why I was so distant with him. He was a mistake. I shouldn't of spent time with Abdul's brother.

That was too close to home, and too weird. Yes, I enjoyed my time with him, but hind sight, and realizing how little he would be involved in my life or his son's life, it shouldn't of happened. I know I shouldn't have looked at my beautiful little boy and thought, wow you shouldn't be here. Considering how I spent all my time taking care of the twins and seeing how horrible they turned out, maybe there's a chance for Kevin to do great things. We celebrated his birthday, and I almost couldn't believe how quick he grew. It was almost like over night. Little by little, I began to notice him wanting to be alone and sneaking off. I actually followed him, just because I remember feeling like an awkward kid, and thought maybe I could be of help. I saw the sparks of light twinkle from his finger tips and I almost gasped out loud. I could not believe it. I quickly rushed into the house and began digging through the boxes of Mom's things. He had the power. I never expected any of my children to possess my talents. I found the wand my mother put away, which belonged to my true father, the man Kevin was named after. I quickly went back to where I had last seen Kevin, I quickly handed him the wand and told him I would help him learn to how focus his power. I have never been so happy and proud of one of my children in my entire life. I started off by teaching him a basic spell of conversation.

I was surprised to see Kevin the other day, right before he was to get ready to go to his first days at high school. He was sitting at the table reading a book. I was surprised because he was never one to worry about studying, especially when you haven't even started in your new school yet.

I walked over and was almost surprised. He was reading my alchemy book. I didn't think he was interested in learning alchemy. I would of never expected any of my children to appreciate what I was doing with my career. I guess I have to stop comparing him to the other ungrateful twins. I wanted to sit and talk to him, I wanted to tell him I could show him some simple potions. I was so giddy excited over his interest. I would of never expected my biggest mistake to actually turn out to be the thing in my life that is making me the happiest. I cannot wait to show him everything I know. I made sure to just let him know that he could have access to my alchemy station and all the things I have for reagents. I just want to tell him everything. It will be so great to know that my child is actually going to be out doing great things in the world. He's actually following in my footsteps and going to help make this world a better place and help me heal the plagues that exist with all the people in this city. There is so many things we can do together, once I teach him how to make the potions correctly. I learned this all on my own, and sometimes things just didn't work out right, if I would of had help or a mentor it would of been so much easier. I cannot wait to help my child grow and become an amazing man!
My pride and joy!
