We last left the Zale family adrift in grief over the loss of founding spouse Angelica. A baby girl was born, who was completely overshadowed by the cat, Benji. Cyrus became a child and Leif got electrocuted while attempting to repair the broken TV! Did he survive?
Hey! Zale family’s first haunting! Hi Angelica!
(I really like the way that skirt looks ghostified)
She had a blast on the trampoline and was squealing with delight from across the netherworld. It was pretty cute.
A RANDOM CURRY WURST APPEARS. No seriously. Where the hell did this come from? There aren’t left overs in the fridge from a guest bringing them to a party, and as you can see, no one in the household made it? And this is the FIRST TIME I have seen anything called a Curry Wurst in the game. Fascinating.
Leif got promoted, and we got to pick Special Agent of Forensic Analyst or something. Leif doesn’t seem “Forensicky” so I opted for special agent, and doesn’t he look snazzy in his vice squad uniform?
I think he does. And I like him. A lot.
Oooh ooh ooh, while I’m talking about jobs (transition master!)
Here’s the lot I built so Bettina could be a fortune teller. I showed it once before, but it was covered in snow.
I think it’s lovely – but that’s cuz it’s my first ever built community lot.
So, while things and stuff were happening (transition master??) Cyrus asked Leif for a bedtime story. After watching all the children be forcefully exposed to adult reading materials, I bought my Zales a bookcase, and put all the child books from the household inventory on it.
Let’s see what he picks, shall we?
Then Leif asked Abe if he wanted to play catch outside. They were interrupted by…
I watched Abe cue up “Zombie Attack” and I worried for his old man ticker…
But I had nothing to worry about – Abe is a Zombiephile. Cuz this one is SMOKIN’!
Abe says “oh yeah! I loves the dead rotting skin and sunkin’ cheeks. YOU’RE HAWT!”
Old Abe is weird.
I had paused the game to get up and do something IRL, and when I came back, I thought I’d click around and see what was up. Never ever has there ever been a better pause. I caught this zombie being unceremoniously tossed from the trampoline. I’m sorry, not to toot my own horn, but best.shot.ever. And it serves him RIGHT for trying to “attack” poor Abe.
So, I’m just gonna tell you, this ENTIRE play session (which was quite long) I was waiting for Abe to die. He autonomously queued up this “hug” action for Bettina…
And I thought he was saying goodbye. And it made me sad.
Who da hell is this?
I moused over her, and it said “Pat Zale” I went frantically searching family trees, and there’s no sign of offspring, and the spares haven’t been out long enough for a child this old? But then I saw the telltale orb of light over her head, and I thought, she’s an Imaginary Friend! But then she vanished, and when I clicked active household members, I couldn’t see her, so she must be one of the spares IF. The spares you say? Are they here?
Becca, Blair having a non-photogenic moment, and Baxter!
Beatrix’s face, Abe, and Breanne!
Blanca Sloan, Beatrix’s girlfriend is here too. And that pudgy girl back there? That’s paparazzi.
Blanca looks terrified. Because she is. She’s staring at a vampire.
“I AM A LITTLE UNCOMFORTABLE”
“No I’m not! I make this look GOOD” EVILEVILEVIL! I first thought Amy was silly, but Bettina has something a little Evil about her. And I ❤ her even MOAR for it.
Both are in the midst of mid-life crises.
…Back at home… (TRANSITION!)
Lovely Celine. She rolls absent minded to go with eccentric and clumsy. I like her. Lots. But I really like Cyrus too, and since I PLANNED on going boy/girl/boy/girl, I’ll PROBABLY pick him. Probably.
Abe Zale is 94 sim days old, and is still kicking. And I’m grateful. Cyrus will be aging into a teenager on the next play session, so I’m sure you’ll want to come back and see us soon!
Until then, Happy Simming!
