1.7 Questions and Doubts

Zoe knows that she has a lot of love to continue giving and wants to have more children, but she is not so young to go through the whole process of a pregnancy again.

So one morning she decided to call the adoption agency and ask what were the requirements to start the process. It turned out that there were not that many and with her growing fame the adoption was quite simple.

Bruno, an absent minded genius little boy, joined the Russell household one sunny day. Zoe was immediately besotted with him.

The new addition to the family brought many questions, especially to the twins.

One afternoon, while her mother taught the skills to her new brother, Ramira decided to talk to the person she trusted the most. Her twin brother Franco, that knew her better than anyone, realized that she had something in mind so he kept quiet waiting for her to speak.

"Do you think we're adopted too?" She finally said after several minutes.

Franco rolled his eyes, sometimes his sister could become quite dense.

"Looked at yourself in a mirror lately? Don't be silly, you're like a copy of mom."

Ramira was offended by the comment and didn't want to talk about it anymore. Franco sighed and wondered why everyone thought he was the grumpy one.

Regardless of the seriousness of the subject, they were only children so they continued to act as such.

But the question was not forgotten.

"Mom, are we adopted too?" Franco asked Zoe, taking advantage of his sister's theory, he knew it wasn't true but it was a good way to start the conversation.

The question took her by surprise and felt a lump forming in her throat, this was the conversation that she feared so much.

"No, of course not. I carried the three of you." Sighed, then she took a deep breath to continue speaking. "I suppose you want to know about your father."

Ramira and Franco looked at her with anticipation while Bellandra played with her food.

"The first thing you need to know is that all three of you share the same father..."

"I don't." Her eldest child interrupted her in a whisper. "I don't need to know it and I don't want to."

Zoe watched as Bellandra got up from the table and took her books. "I think I'm going to walk to school, to take advantage of the sun."

When the door closed behind her daughter, the woman wondered if she had waited too long to speak. And if it was too late to do it. Then she looked at the twins' faces and knew tit's never to late for this kind of conversation.


After so many months without playing, I really do not know where I'm going with the story, but somewhere interesting, I hope.

Random thought: Bruno is absent minded and genius (????). The game could be so absurd sometimes.


  1. Yay an absent minded genius! That sounds so great, like a more lovable version of a brainy character (because when people are listless it's apparently endearing). I had a brave & clumsy character once, that cracked me up.

    I think the eldest daughter leaving to avoid the conversation is very realistic. It's not as if she knew what her mother wanted to talk about or could prepare herself. This way she'll have all day at school to think things over.

    1. Bruno is a very fun character to play and the combination of traits gives a lot of ideas to write the story.

      Bellandra leaving was in character with what I think is her personality, she is quite self-sufficient and is always the one helping the most and I think she got used to a life without a father, so that spontaneous conversation could have upset her. (I think I'm too involved with my sims o_O )

  2. Glad you're back! <3

    Genius and Absent Minded seem like a fine combo to me. xD Some super intelligent people in real life have everything together... and some, despite their intelligence, are just a total mess.

    1. Thank you!

      That is true for many intellingent people, some are so abstracted from reality that they seem absent minded.

  3. Absent Minded and Genius is such a brilliant trait combination. I had a Sim who was Evil and Friendly, so they would go out and befriend everyone they came across, only to then roll a wish to undermine a charity xD

    1. I would like an evil friendly sim in my legacy, it would be an interesting story.

  4. Absent minded and genius is such a fun combination! Zoe is so sweet for adopting Bruno. She really loves being a mom, doesn’t she? :)

    1. Bruno is so much fun to play and is one the most absent minded sims that I ever had. And Zoe love her children very much, I like her character, she's carrying the legacy all by herself.
