Sims Saturday: More Time At The Cauldron
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 VelvetDove.

This town is so worthless! I don't know how many times I've gone back and forth from Aleistar's to the Swap N Sell, to the grocery store, and still no good herbs. Where are all the gardeners? Where are the rare herbs? Where are all the things I need to find to practice these higher level potions? There has to be someone somewhere who can harvest their herbs and sell them?

We had a small defective patch of a garden that some long lost someone had started before they died. Some Maxwell or something. I think I got it now though. You HAVE to plant your own herbs. Not unless you have a friend of a friend who is willing to plant and harvest the rare stuff, you can't get a hold of it. So, I had enough, I was going to go and start planting herbs in my back yard and sooner or later I was going to be able to get the things I needed for the elixirs I was wanting to make. You can't rely on anyone else to do it for you, no matter how much money you have. Some things you just have to take care of on your own. So, I tilled Maxwell's garden in the back yard, pulled up my sleeves and decided to take things into my own hands, literally. Granted I'm sure it will take a while before I can master some of the plants, but I'm a quick learner and what doesn't come quick, I'm sure I can find a potion to help with that.

Now that Tracy is actually the highest rank in the police department, I know I can do anything and everything in the town, and what can people say? Do they actually think that she'll proceed on any charges that involve me? I highly doubt that! I'm her family! That's what we were taught, after all, wasn't it? Your family should be the most important thing in your world? I'm grateful I have her as my aunt, that's for sure, there's always a little safe fall, in case I get into trouble for anything I'm doing. We do have money so, in theory, I can always pay off anyone who files a grievance against me, but I like to hold onto my money. If I can just simply tell Tracy my side in any situation, I'm more willing to do that and get out of anything besides using our money. Not like my brother and sister, who I know have lawyers on stand by to go and sue and deflect and everything else, for any of the stupid things they do. They're all about going to parties and meeting people, and hanging out with the "celebrities" of our town. I really don't care to socialize with any of these people here. I just want to make sure they know my name when I take over their world.

So, I'll go to whatever parties I hear about my brother and sister talking about. However, I'm not going there to actually socialize. I'm scanning over their houses, I'm finding their weaknesses. I'm taking what I want, when I want it! I don't know how many times I've gone into someone's house, when they open them up for people and walked out with a thing or two from their house. You open yourself up, you become a victim, that's all there is to it. I will scope out who is born to be a victim, because so many are like my brother and sister, who will open up their house for others, just because they want to brag and show off, and then set themselves up for someone like me to come in and take all their little toys. I sometimes want to go and send back their precious possessions, with a note stating what a sucker they are. Sometimes I wonder if they even realize some of the things are gone. It's becoming more and more of a fun game. Hide and seek, what did I take from your house now? Bet you won't be so willing to let people in when you realize how much I've taken!

I'm not completely sure, with how our world operates, there's so much mystical things going on. I'm a wizard, natural born even! Some people don't believe that exists. I don't understand how or why people get so upset about death. You never know what's going to happen after you die. There's plenty of the walking dead in this city alone, obviously death is not an end. If you can cause death, you may as well believe you can cause rebirth or reincarnation. There's sightings all the time of spirits in this town, heck even in this house.

My mother died, not a big deal, not like she made a mess when she went out. She was outside the front door of the house and just collapsed. It doesn't mean you're never going to see her again anyways. She'll always be around. I just hope she's not always in my business now, since she can go anywhere she wants without anyone even knowing. I don't need her coming around and possibly knowing that I'm planning now. She was always trying to sneak around, and not so successful in it, to try and see what potions I was researching, looking at my herbs to try and figure it out. She always claimed to be just wanting to help or give advice, but I'm sure there was more to it. It didn't completely upset me. I'm sure with all my power in the cauldron, if I really need her for something, I can summon her back. Then apparently my father dies, and I'm supposed to be upset? Upset for a man who had never had much to do with my growing up? I talked to him once and a while, but he was never truly around. I swear my aunts were hovering around, waiting for me to crumble and fall. I'm not going to lose sleep, nor grieve over people who, if I really want to talk to them again, I can. I know I can! All I feel is that, now I will have more time at the cauldron. She never really achieved her goals in life, but I will be damned if I don't. I will do everything I want to whenever I want to. That's about all the feelings I have to my now being parentless. It matters nothing to me. I will continue on!
