Saying Goodbye P2 (Gen 4)

After Star’s funeral, the Fiers returned to their home in Sulani. Aster followed.

Upon arriving, Aster began crying, perhaps remembering what it was like to lose her own mother. Asher meditated in the most vampiric way possible, encouraging his eldest daughter to do the same. The next few days would be difficult, but …

After composing herself, Aster went inside and immediately began helping out around the house. She did the laundry. She did the dishes. She took out the trash.

Dyna forced herself to go to soccer practice and returned exhausted. Of the five young adults in the house, she was the sweetest and the youngest. Whenever her twin, Darius, set the house on fire, Dyna would help him put it out and cheer him up. She even laughed at his horrid jokes. Dyna also had perfect grades and was awarded a full-ride scholarship to Foxbury. But because she was the youngest, she was often overlooked. Everything she did, her older siblings had already done and just as well, except for soccer—she wasn’t consciously competing with them, but the sport was something unique to her and perhaps why she pushed herself to exhaustion.

At any rate, Asher was in an interesting mood. Maybe it was talking to Aster that helped; maybe it was meditating; maybe Star’s passing made him realize some things.

Regardless, he spent the night, dare we say, lovingly? watching over his wife, Adelise, as she slept. Even though he hadn’t liked Adelise much at first (and had made it clear to everyone that she wasn’t his first choice), they’d married and he’d grown extremely fond of her. Those difficult times had been literal generations ago and despite how things were then, now he genuinely cared about her feelings.

Asher also cared about his daughter Dysis.

Lately, he’d been a bit cruel to Dysis (making fun of her, jokingly telling her to move out, questioning her intelligence, &c.). It was obvious that she was having a hard time, so the next morning, after more reflection and while annoyed with himself, he went to talk to her.

She was in the process of quickly downing a healthy breakfast of carrot juice so that she could catch up on her university work. Previously cheerful and confident Dysis was honestly stressed about everything: Star had just died; she wanted to spend more time with her boyfriend (but that was dangerous for a thousand different reasons); her grades were questionable; and her place in the family seemed iffy. Now, her father was coming to talk to her. She wondered what trouble he would start.

Asher was uncharacteristically nice. He told a questionable joke, but it worked on Dysis and she laughed.

They chatted happily for a bit and Dysis smiled.

But her smile didn’t last.

    I feel so awful for Deli; immortality seems cool on the surface but it really isn’t. Oh yikes, hitting on a relative by mistake sounds like the worst thing X_X I love Darius going to the university before enrolling all to look good on social media XD I’m glad Dysis passed and got a decent grade at Uni. Losing Star is going to hurt, especially since judging by description she was preferred by the younger ones to the immortal parents. Let’s see how (or if) Asher’s change of heart towards Dysis will be a long-term thing or not. Putting down your daughter isn’t a good idea Asher!
    As with any long legacy a lot of the younger ones are struggling with all kinds of pressures- academic, love etc, except in this one you can actually see how it affects everyone. I like how you manage to include bits of all the corners of the family and not just one or two gens ^U^

      Thanks so much and I agree about immortality. It might be okay if all your friends are immortal too; otherwise, it causes issues. I’m lucky in that members of my legacy live for a long time so I can keep talking about them.

    I wonder how Asher and Adelise got to be together. The Fiers story started at generation 4, so we’re missing a lot of background story. It sounds like those two had a very rocky start. I wonder who Asher’s first choice was – Aster’s mother? Or someone that he couldn’t get, the metaphorical one that got away?

    All of those kids have such high expectations placed on their shoulders. Especially with previous generations of kids being perfect – the pressure to be as good or even better must be enormous. What if one of them just wanted to be themselves and breeze through life, I wonder. Would Asher and Adelise let them?

      Asher and Adelise’s backstory is revealed in pieces as things progress, but it’s not a spoiler to say that it was definitely a rocky start. Asher’s personality is off-putting, so he’s had difficulty with romance. There’s not much to say about Adelise yet.

    i am 100% intrigued by asher and adelise’s story of how they got together (arranged marriage? not his first choice??). i’m simultaneously loving and hating these glimpses into their past… because I’m impatient and want to know more NOW! (haha but in all seriousness, this is great storytelling technique; these periodic juicy reveals are keeping me hooked and hungry for more 🙂)

      Thank you! Unfortunately, it’s a very very drawn out reveal. In my game (thanks to mods and luckily for Asher), Asher’s appearance is considered quite attractive to other Sims, but his personality/behavior is a bit… His relationship with Adelise started in an unstable way.
