Sims Saturday: A Change In Goals
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.

I am really starting to question my father's sanity. I always tried to live up to him, live up to his dream. I tried studying his stupid books, because he said it was what we were meant for, that it was in our genes and in our destiny. He's all rather vague on what exactly our destiny is or will be. I just don't understand his actions at all. Aunty Christine died, and I was sad. I know Simone was sad. I know Simone was REALLY sad. Father walked around like it was the greatest thing to of ever happened to him and I don't know how you could be like that. How can you act like that to family? Besides not caring about Christine dying, the very first thing he did, right after getting off the phone, was to throw Aunt Judy and Uncle Roger out of the house. I don't understand! I really like Aunt Judy! She's always been there for me. She even taught me how to drive! I wanted to take out one of the old cars we had and she insisted we take her car. "If you can deal with the stress of not damaging my million dollar car, then you can handle any stress the road gives you". That was really smart advice! Judy is awesome!

Then to just throw them out of the house, like they were nothing, I don't understand. Granted I will make sure they still can live and have money. My father can't cut them off of everything, like he said he was going to. They helped raise Simone, Toby and I. You can't just throw them out the door like that! It's in our genes to be great! Well they're in our genes too, ya know. I've been reading up a lot about genetics and how everything works and I'm starting to think my father knows nothing.

I feel so bad for Simone! Her mother died and she has no one to console her, but my father and his evil wife. She's been spending a lot of time, just staring out the window crying. I mean she has Christine's DNA, so she doesn't have that stable of genes as it is. Christine wasn't completely sane. We all know that. But she was a creative person, how should could come up with the amazing stories and novels she did make, is awesome! You can't be completely sane and that creative at the same time. I just don't know what I would do if I was that close to my mother and then have her die like that. Father wouldn't even let us see her, or have a funeral or anything for her. When my mother died, I barely knew her or talked to her. I don't even think my father told me about her passing until months after the fact. But, for Simone, she lived with her mother. I miss seeing her ever day and knowing the things she did all the time. It is really hard for her. I offer to be there for her, but we were never really close. I truly have no idea what I should say anyways. I mean, what can I say? "I'm sorry"? That doesn't completely help and that goes without saying. I certainly wouldn't be running around in front of her like it was the biggest gift I've ever received, like Father is. I don't think he has much consideration for anyone but himself. I just hope I don't turn out like him.

I'm beginning to really distrust the Alchemy practice. It's too unpredictable and can really mess up things. The other day I was reading, Father thought I was reading a potion book, but was really reading a book on genetics. I mean, am I really going to turn out like him? Are there certain things in your genes you can change? All these theories are so interesting. Is it possible to have evil in your genes? The more I see of Father, the more evil I think he may be. I never noticed it when I was younger, but as I've gotten older, more and more things just are not seeing right. He doesn't seem to care about anything but his own agenda. You should think after seeing first hand Simone's destructive ways, he might have a different idea on things. I mean, she was blowing up things in the front yard.

Although I am having serious doubts about my father, the other day, Simone started a fire in the front yard, and my father came out to put it out and he ended up catching his clothing on fire. I could not believe what I was seeing, my whole world was crashing down right in front of my eyes and I couldn't take it anymore. Everything turned black, so I'm sure I passed out. I seriously don't know what I would of done, if I was forced to watch my father burn to death right in front of my eyes. It's like yes I know he's evil and everything, but he is my father and I can't have him going and leaving us alone with my evil step mother!

The other day I was sitting at the table catching up on a book I got about how DNA effects your growing and my father comes in and takes a vial from him coat. He seems to always have bottles in his jacket, it's really strange. But he actually drank it! I almost did not want to look and see what exactly he did. Just to once again prove that Alchemy possibly is not all good for sure, all of a sudden, his grey hair was gone, I watched as year were erased from his face. Is it wrong that it passed through my mind that maybe it would of been better if he would of just died? I know, I said I didn't want to see him burn alive in front of me, but him drinking something and then falling asleep, might not of been that bad. I'm sure I could of went and lived with Aunt Judy. So now, my father is walking around the house, looking almost as young as I am, which is totally weird. I just know he's messing up something in his body by doing weird things like this. I don't know if it actually made him younger, like he's going to live longer, or if it was just an appearance thing. I don't know. I started going through his alchemy books just to see what exactly might of happened or what he had done. Mostly I wanted to find a way to turn it all back and for him to go back to the right age. However, as I suspected, alchemy definitely can have disastrous effects. I was trying to make an age spell and it blew up in my face. I was sure I had lost my eyebrows or something.
