The Bell Family - Week 5

 - - - Update 10.7.2012 - - - The Bells are not the reason why we are here today, but it is only polite to say "good morning" to them at the start of their next week, don't you think? 
Sharon Wirth is why we are here, since we have reached the letter W on the alphabetical list. Nothing has changed since we last saw her. She is still working as a Tap Dancer and still far from reaching her lifetime want of earning 100.000 Simoleons, and there is still no special someone in her life. 
She spends her days working, selling the paintings her sister and brother-in-law paint, and reading the music & dance magazine. 
On Monday, Daniel returns from college and moves back in with his parents and aunt Sharon. He adds more than 20.000 Simoleons to the already well stocked household account. He has gradtuated Summa Cum Laude in Drama, and not needing to work will allow him plenty of time for his lifetime want, that of having 20 best friends. 
Today, Sofia Baldwin becomes his best friend # 17. 
Daniel and his Dad are clearly happy that he is back from uni! 
"It feels good to be grown up," Daniel muses over breakfast the next morning. 
It is Tuesday, and winter has well and truly set in with plenty of snow. Daniel builds two snowmen and then seems to really enjoy knocking them over! 
Didn't he just talk about being all grown-up now? :-) 
Uh-oh... It is Wednesday, and something unforeseen happened: I only made Sharon and her brother-in-law Issac dance together, and before I knew it, red hearts appeared above their heads and the two of them were in love! 
While Daniel doesn't know anything of the goings-on inside and greets Heather Huffington... 
...his mother Hannah finds out about her husband's and sister's betrayal and confronts them. (It wasn't even a kiss, you know... But she is terribly upset.) 
On Thursday, Daniel is invited to Sue's Secret Kitchen. By now he knows something is not right between his parents and aunt Sharon. His Dad obviously isn't well. 
And his Mom spends way too much time out in the cold, painting on the balcony. Is this some sort of therapy?
Hannah spends almost all day without getting dressed, and retreats to her son's room in order to avoid her husband and her sister. 
Issac feels lonely and wishes he and his wife could be friends again. 
By Friday evening, Hannah and Issac are at least on talking terms again. Daniel has, by the way, made his 18th best friend today: it is Melody Tinker. 
While Hannah does not yet want to sleep again in the same bed as her husband, she does agree to talk things over in a very adult and civilized manner. 
In spite of this, the next morning I find Issac jumping into Sharon's arms. (Hannah never saw this.) 
It is Saturday, and Daniel greets Björn Beaker who was passing the house on his jogging round through the neighbourhood. 
Daniel is on the phone several times a day to maintain his existing friendships and establish new ones. 
On Sunday, Chester Gieke walks past and is of course promptly invited in. 
And so is Pierre Picaso. 
Hannah and Sharon (not in the picture) both have 3 bolts for Chester, just like almost every lady in New Max. And Hannah does not keep her attraction for this young man a secret! Is she doing this to get back at her husband? Will the two of them save their marriage, or break up over Sharon? How long before Daniel will make the last two best friends he needs for his LTW, and what will he do after that?


  1. Ok that was an unexpected round. :) I always forget dancing causing love, it's burned me a couple of times. Once recently in Megalahood which you will be able to read about before too much longer.

    1. I didn't expect this happening, either! Good job in real life dancing together does not always mean two fall in love with each other... It would make me feel very uncomfortable about my boyfriend dancing with other ladies at the dancing school where he regularly attends classes!

  2. They say dancing is a vertical expression of horizontal desires... :)

    1. I didn't know this saying, but it was certainly true in this case...!


Whether you play The Sims 2 yourself or not, it would be great hearing from you. As I will reply to comments regularly, please remember to come back if you have asked a question.
