Ashby Lemi – Baby 25

ASHBY LEMI’S 100 BABY CHALLENGE

BABY 25

 

***Author’s note*** this contains some adult content. If you are 15 or younger please make sure it is okay for you to read this. Thank you

 

 

 

                It would soon be time for Wren to age into a teen so she decided to get some good quality time in with her brother. She felt so lucky that Ashby had taken them both in and that they didn’t need to be separated. It was hard enough to lose her parents; she couldn’t bear to think that she could have lost her brother too. 

 

 

            “Mom, come and dance my last practice with me. Tomorrow I will be a teen!” Wren hollered at Ashby. 

            Ashby was soaking in the hot tub with Asher, and excused herself by saying, “Sorry honey my baby needs me.” She winked at him and went and had a dance with her child. 

 

            The next night they had a party for Wren and it seemed like everyone came. Vi, Christy, Derrick, myself, and many others as well. *sorry the pictures of the party were just too dark* Wren had a great time as well as her family and she grew into a fine looking young lady. She thought that her hair was a bit plain so she added some purple highlight and this writer thinks she looks great.


 

 

            “Look little brother, it is me Wren your big sister.” Wren tried to encourage Holden to not be scared. She may look different but she was still his big sister and she loved him.

            After hearing her voice Holden knew who she was and just wanted to snuggle with her.

 

            With Teen hood Wren developed a love for exercise. She even convinced Ashby that working out would make her feel better. Ashby was willing to try anything. She was slipping into a deeper and deeper depression over the loss of her girls. She hated this because she was happy with her current life as well. 

 

            It wasn’t long after Wren aged up that it was time for Holden to grow into a child. What a handsome boy with his piercing amber eyes and darker complexion.   He is really into logic games such as chess, when Asher gets home from work and before Holden goes to bed, the two of them can be found trying to beat the other in a good healthy game of chess.

 

Addison Lemi

 

Taloria Lemi

 

            It was soon time for the twins Addison and Taloria to age into tots and begin learning their skills. These two girls are just little angels. Addison got her mom’s hair, red with red highlights, and Taloria got her dads, red with blonde highlights. 

            The twins are such silly children they keep the family laughing. Look at Taloria with her tiny finger up her nose. I mean really…….

 

            Wren wasn’t a genius like her brother, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t smart. She found that she had a love for writing and was determined to have a book published. Between school working, helping around the house and dancing she could be found working on the computer. 

 

            Ashby and Asher helped the girls with their skills and once they were all mastered it was time to age them up.

 

            What a fun little girl Addison grew into. She likes working the chemistry set and playing on the playground with her sister. 

 

            I think Taloria got all her mom from hair, skin, eyes and style. She is so much girl that it makes Addison look like a Tom-boy when she really isn’t. She loves to be surrounded by people and friends and she is thinking of being a fashion designer when she grows up.

 

            After the girls aged up Ashby tucked them into bed and kissed their sweet foreheads. 

            The next morning things had changed drastically in Sunset Valley, The Sims world was introduced to Generations. This new addition to the Sims world has opened the doors for Sims to do so much more with their lives. The Lemi family was excited to try everything and anything this addition had to offer, but not all of it was good.

 

            The day after the girls aged up started a long weekend for Memorial Day. Early Saturday morning Ashby and Asher went to the store and bought several new items for the house and their family. 

            The first thing Taloria did was run to the costume chest and dressed up into a pretty purple princess. After putting on the costume her imagination took over and she pretended she was Princess Taloria ruler of the Lemi household, but got pretty frustrated when her siblings and parents wouldn’t listen to her “requests”.


 

 

            It appeared that with the new stuff that was introduced new ideas and behaviors started with the Sims around town. 

            Wren got an idea in her head that it would be fun to pull a prank on the inspecting Holden. She fiddled around with the toilet and then went and found her brother. When she did she began talking about running water and different things and soon it was in his head to use the restroom and …. BAM her trick hit him full force in the face. 

            Wren got in trouble for her actions and was even Grounded!! However this didn’t stop her from finding the humor or the fun she had from pranking her brother. I feel that the Lemi children are going to start getting into no good.


 

 

            While Addison and Taloria played in the new Tree House……

 

            And Holden played Green Dinosaur….

 

 

 

 

            The adults and eldest daughter decided to try out the new water slide. Wren was a pro right off the bat doing tricks and having fun. The athletic Asher also did well, but his wife wasn’t so lucky. At first she was a bit uncoordinated and kept getting water in her face.   Asher couldn’t help by snicker at her bad luck, but it was all in fun. 

            The Lemi family had a blast with their new activities and played well into the night. 


 

 

            It was late when the family crawled into bed. Being the only boy in the house Holden begged Asher for a story even though he was very tired. Asher jumps at any opportunity to be with his kids.

 

            The next day, Sunday, was just as crazy with family time and trying new things. Wren decided to take her hand at the new hopscotch game. She turned out to be pretty good at it and loved playing.

 

            Taloria broke some dishes and got in trouble. Asher knows that accidents happen but she was trying to juggle them. He had to give her a stern talking to about freedom of expression, but also being respectful to other people’s things.

 

            Asher had to go into work for a little bit on Sunday and Wren wanted to go hang out with her friends in town, so they killed two birds with one stone, and Asher gave her a driving lesson to meet her friends.


 

 

            Memorial Day they did more of the same things played in the water, had a picnic, played on new playground equipment and at the end of the day Asher, Addison and Taloira wound down with a video game.

            Ashby was busy online researching what the school now offered with Generations and she signed Holden up for Scouts, and Addison up for Ballet lessons.


 

 

            The next day as Wren was getting ready for school she had a much unexpected surprise. Holden had decided to get back at her for the toilet prank and filled her shower head with hair color.

            Luckily the color was washable, but since she had been running later already she had to go to school with a full head of purple hair. 

 

            Weeks past and with the building guilt and the stress of life in general Ashby began to feel a bit restless. She and Asher would talk for hours and one night he told her that he would watch the kids and she just needed to go let off some steam. He told her to go and check out the new club in town. 

            Ashby called everyone, Vi was unable to make it due to her upcoming surgery and Christy already had plans. Of course the Della’s were in Bridgeport, and Nessa too had plans. Ashby decided to go anyways.

            She had a great time at the Grind eating bar food and chatting with the people she met until she met HIM, the Vampire Darko Mulberry. She had heard the stories of this Vampire but never thought they or he was real, but this night changed her views and life forever.

            He told her that he was the one who had called asking to be in her challenge and that he really wanted her to reconsider her answer. She politely declined again setting Darko’s anger off. He began to insult her and her family and when he brought up her dead girls her blood began to boil and she began telling him off.

 

            Darko didn’t like to be talked to in this manor and stuck her in the face. Ashby reached up and rubbed the spot with her knuckles and glared at him. She was not about to make more of a scene then they already had and she turned on her heels and headed out of the establishment.


 

 

            Darko wouldn’t let this alone and ran after her. He grabbed her by the shoulder and spun her around. Taking her arm he sank his teeth deep into it as Ashby screamed for her life. 

            When he was done he wiped his mouth and watched as the bats consumed her. Then he left Ashby in a state of confusion.

 

            Ashby called Asher as she walked home (she was too scared to drive). She told him everything that had happened and he wanted to go after the guy that hurt her, but she told him that all she wanted was to be in his arms when she got home. He agreed to leave it alone for now but when she walked into the house she could not find him anywhere.

            “Asher?” She called with a dry voice. 

            She had reached the top of the stairs when she heard him come in the front door. “Babe?” He called.

            “Up here.” 

            He ran two at a time up the stairs and when he got there he handed her a beautiful bouquet of purple roses. “It isn’t much but I want to try and cheer you up.” 

            “You are the best husband a gal could ask for.” She mustered a smile for him and smelled the sweet fragrance of the flowers. Then she winced in pain as Darko’s bite began to burn.

            Asher snaked his arm around her waist and led her downstairs into the kitchen. He washed out the bit and look at it carefully. He suggested that she go and see the doctor but she waived him off and told him she would be fine. He bandaged her up and they headed off to bed.

 

            A few days later Ashby woke up with a splitting headache and when she looked in the mirror this is what she saw. She finally understood what Darko had done to her. He hadn’t just drunk her blood he had changed her into a creature of the night. Her temper flared and she headed to Darko’s house.


 

 

            When he saw who was at his door, Darko, began laughing. He told Ashby that he knew he would be seeing her and wanted to know what she thought of his gift.

            She got right into this face and began shouting at him.  She cursed him for turning her and for his overall behavior. As she yelled, screamed and cried at him Darko just stared into her big grey eyes, never once did he divert his eyes from hers. Pretty soon she began to feel light headed and disoriented. 

            When she left it was three hours later and she had no memory of what happened from the time she got there and yelled at him till the time she left his home. 

 

            On her way home she ran into her good friend Christy Quinn. She filled Christy in on everything that had happened with Darko. Christy was shocked and reached out to place a comforting hand on her friends shoulder.


 

 

            Before Ashby had time to think she grabbed Christy’s arm and sank her teeth deep into her flesh pulling out Christy’s warm, salty blood.

            Christy was too stunned to struggle or scream or anything. She just stared at Ashby wide eyed. 

 

            The effects of human blood cased Ashby to go insane. Vampires refer to this behavior as blood lust. She quickly got herself under control and began apologizing over and over to her friend.

 

            Christy had encounter vampires before and told Ashby that she loved her and that she was okay. She advised Ashby to go home and talk to Asher and get it worked out. Being drunk from makes a Sim tired so Christy hugged her friend and headed home for some much needed rest.

 

            When Ashby got home she changed her clothes and she and Asher sat down for a much needed talk. She told him that she was now a full fledged Vampire and their lives would now change. She told him about confronting Darko and that she had a missing three hours from her memory, and she told him her suspicions about what happened during those three hours. 

            Saying what she suspected caused her to break down. She cried as Asher held her in his arms. He rubbed her back, cooed in her ear and when her sobs started to cease he pushed her to arm’s length.

            “Babe, you are all I am ever going to want so the fact that you’re a vampire doesn’t change that. It just changes some of our behaviors.   As far as the other matter is concerned I have been asking you to continue your challenge and you keep avoiding the subject. Tonight we need sleep but I propose that if your suspicions are accurate then we actually sit down and talk about your challenge. Deal?”

            Ashby looked deep into her husband’s eyes, “Fine, but I can’t stand to think about being with another man. How can you look at me like that if what I think is true?”           

            Asher kissed the back of her hand, “I will admit the thought of you with another man does not make me happy, but we can figure that out when we decide if you are going to continue your challenge. As far as what Darko has done if I thought I had a chance against a vampire I would be at his house right now.”

            He took her hand and led her to their bedroom.

 

            Time went by and soon a baby bump began to develop on Ashby. She knew that her fears had been true. 

 

            She did some research on vampires and found out that a vampire’s sire could be very controlling but even though they could make their “children” do many things they could never really get them to do something that wasn’t in their heart.

            Perhaps deep down Ashby truly wants to continue her challenge. 


 

 

            The night had become Ashby’s time. She missed her kids because they were out playing and enjoying the sunshine during the day and slept when she was allowed to go out at night. 

            Walking was good for the baby and almost nightly she would go walking around time. One night she met Darko at the park.

            “Wow, look at you. When is my son due?” Darko said with a toothy grin.

            “You will stay away from my baby.” Ashby shot at him.

            “This baby is half me.” Darko said as he reached forward and tried to place his hands on Ashby’s stomach.

            She slapped his hands away, “You stay away from me, my family and this baby.” She turned on her heel and fled.


 

 

            A few weeks before the baby was due Taloria came down with the flu. She couldn’t keep anything down. Asher carried his little girl upstairs, tucked her into his and Ashby’s bed, read her a bed time story and allowed her sleep away from the other children. 

 

            Missing her sister Addison would come home from school, do her homework and then play in the sandbox. 

            Taloria was only ill for a few days and was soon back running around with her sister.

 

            Soon it was time for Holden to be a teenager. Asher and Ashby threw him a party.   They party was a success and everyone cheered as Holden spun into teenage-hood.

 

            What a handsome young man Holden turned into. He has very soft, kind eyes and features much like his sisters. Ashby was worried however when he inherited the new Rebellious trait. She wondered what that would cause her little boy to do.

 

            As the party started to wind down the most unexpected thing happened. Ashby went into labor.  Due to the circumstances she had a home birth.

 

            Sunset Valley TX, please welcome your newest member…. Lockland Mulberry-Lemi. Even though Ashby didn’t like Darko she felt it was only right to include his last name on the birth certificate. Lockland had the right to know someday.

 

Thank you as always for reading. I hope to hear what you are thinking of Ashby’s life. Please leave a comment or find me on facebook under Ashby Lemi.

Ashby Starr Bright – Babies 23 and 24

ASHBY LEMI’S 100 BABY CHALLENGE

BABIES 23 and 24

            Hello again readers of Ashby’s blog it is I, Nina Nestor, back to provide you another update in Ashby’s life. I’m sad to report that this update may not be full of flowers and butterflies, but it is what has happened. 

            As you saw in the last blog update we ended with the birth and aging of Royce and Rooney into toddlers. Ashby was all set to begin them on their skill training when she got a call from the adoption agency. They told her that a set of siblings had just come into the state’s custody. They told her that the Child, named Wren, and the toddler, named Holden, was orphaned two weeks ago when their parents were victims in a bank robbery gone badly. Ashby didn’t need even a minute to answer with a big yes. She asked the Princess Triplets, Roisin, Callum and JayLeen to watch Royce and Rooney, and set out to pick up the new additions to their family.

 

Wren Starr Bright

            Holden Starr Bright

http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=4118875

            The children were precious and pretty well adjusted despite their loss. Ashby thoroughly enjoyed getting acquainted with them during their time at the adoption agency. However, their time was cut very short when Ashby received a call from the local police department.

            She was told that another meteor had hit her house.   The house was beyond repair and this time there were causalities. Roisin, JayLeen, Rocye and Rooney had been killed instantly, but Callum was at the local hospital life support.

            Ashby was a mess. Someone from the agency drove Ashby to the hospital and they kept the kids there for the time being. I have mentioned before I am not suppose to get involved, but I knew Ashby wasn’t in any shape to make phone calls so I called Victor and before I knew it he was back in Twinbrook by his last surviving daughters side. 

            Distraught with grief and worry the next two weeks went by in a blur. Ashby’s good friend Asher Lemi came and picked up Wren and Holden and stayed in a motel with them as Ashby planned and held the funerals of four of her daughters and when she wasn’t doing that she and Victor took vigilance by Callum’s side.

            Beautiful princess Callum lasted two weeks before slipping away from this world. Her death took away Ashby’s last strand of happiness and she dropped to her knees, cursed God and cried until she had no more tears. She vowed that she would never continue the 100 baby challenge, using many colorful words to describe it and how trying it was on people.

            Callum was buried next to her sisters and two days after Victor flew home and Ashby was convinced by Asher and Violet to move to Sunset Valley. Yes she had children still in Twinbrook who wanted her to stay, but Ashby felt that they needed to continue with their lives and not be worried about how well their mother is doing.

            Oh before I leave out any details Victor asked me to stay on and continue to report on Ashby’s life and I followed the Starr Bright family to Sunset Valley.

            Since Asher had a nice house and no roommates the plan was for Ashby, Wren and Holden to stay with him until Ashby could find a suitable house for them three of them. As many of you know there has always been something between Asher and Ashby and one night, after the children were tucked into bed, Asher went out to take a night time stroll when he came upon Ashby grieving for her loss. He took her into arms and held her. Soon he was kissing her neck, cheeks and lips and finally he confessed the feelings he has had for Ashby all these years. Ashby was so touched and overwhelmed with his confession that she kissed him and that night they were intimate for the first time since they conceived Derrick. 

            The next day Asher proposed to Ashby and she agreed. I, Nina Nestor, isn’t sure she agreed for all the right reasons, but I have to say that Asher Lemi is the perfect guy for Ashby and if he can’t help her deal with her grief then no one can.

            A week later they went to the justice of peace and had a very private wedding. Their friends and family were a bit disappointed that they chose to be so private, but many understood the grief Ashby was experience that they chose not to voice their disappointment. 

 

            The two set out right away to find a house that would be theirs and not just Asher’s. It didn’t take them long to find this house by the beach. It was a fixer upper, but Asher is handy and liked working with this hands and it was something that could help distract Ashby. 


 

 

            Derrick talked to his wife Sally and with her blessing he came and helped his parents move into their new home. With mixed feelings of happiness that his parents were finally together and worry about his mother’s terrible loss he stayed through the weekend. 


 

 

            Both Ashby and Derrick had a blast spending time together. Ashby had always longed to be a bigger part of Derrick’s life and the weekend they spent together was like going back in time. Derrick wanted to impress his mom and Ashby wanted to dote on him. At the end of the weekend it was time for Derrick to get back to Sally and their family. Again Ashby felt a loss, but with this loss she knew that she would see Derrick and his family more often now that they lived in the same town.

 

            Family life and routines started quite early. Homework for Wren, Dinner time and together time were being instilled in the children right away. Ashby didn’t want to feel the ache and loss she felt with Derrick with any more of her kids. 


 

 

            Every day Asher looked at the little face of Holden and tried to talk to Ashby about her challenge. He wanted her to continue, much like Connery did, and knew how much it meant to her even though she was still talking out of grief and said that it didn’t. She just refused to listen to him or talk about it. All she said was that she was done and that was final. This made Asher sad, but overall he was full of happiness to be married to the woman of his dreams and helping her raise two of the sweetest children he had ever met. He couldn’t believe how well adjusted they were considering what they had been through.

 

            Asher would often find Ashby starring into space with a sad look on her face. Not once did she fail to meet the needs of either Wren or Holden, but he got the very distinct feeling that she continued to blame herself for the death of her five girls. He didn’t understand how she could feel it was her fault. How could she have stopped a meteor?


 

 

            Asher thought that a good dose of friends and family would be a mood booster for Ashby. He invited her best friend, and soon to be sister-in-law, Violet Newbie over as well as their good friend Christy Quinn. He also had Derrick come over to take care of Holden so that he and Ashby could have some adult time. 


 

 

            While Christy and Ashby were outside chatting Asher and Violet sat down and had a very in-depth talk about Ashby and her moods. 

            “Asher, you just need to be patient with her. You have to let her go through the grief process. Ash has been through a lot the past couple of years, first losing her mom, then Connery, her dad and then five of her children. I can’t imagine how she is able to be as strong as she is right now.” Violet always knows the right words to say to people in need.

            She and Asher talked extensively about and what he could do for her but the conversation didn’t end before he gushed about how happy he was that he and Ashby were married. He had loved her for so long and had intentions of revealing his feelings, but when he found out Connery was sick and had the same feelings he had totally backed off, but the wait was well worth it.

 

            “Ashby, I have to admit that I have always wanted you to realize what a special man Asher is.” Violet admitted not looking into her best friend’s eyes. 

            “Are you sure you aren’t just saying that because you are smitten with his twin brother Ashley?” Ashby giggles.

            “That could be part of it, but even before I met A.J. I knew Asher was the best man for.” 

            Ashby just shook her head and when I asked what she had been thinking about she just said “Connery.”

 

            Ashby and Asher enjoyed their adult time and Ashby was very grateful that her two best friends were able to spend the day with them. She missed her kids back in Twinbrook, but she was warming up to living so close to good friend’s, and it helped that she heard from one or more of her kids every day.

 

            Since the time she started school in Sunset Valley Wren begged to be in dance and finally Ashby and Asher consented but her she would only be allowed to continue if she kept her grades up as well as work in practice time. Every night before bed she goes outside to the dance floor and practices. She is rather a good dancer.


 

 

            Even though I feel that Ashby agreed to marry Asher out of grief and loneliness they truly are in love, but even with a strong love there are problems and their current problems were 1) Asher wanted Ashby to continue her challenge and she refused to and 2) Asher wanted to have kids with Ashby but again she was doing everything she could to avoid that.


 

 

            Ashby and Asher make a great team and wonderful parents. Holden is well rounded and learned his skills quickly and Wren is doing very well in her dance class and has been on the honor roll in every grade so far.

 

            Dance, good grades, and baking, Wren was a well rounded girl. Even thought she didn’t sell anything during her first bake sale she had a blast talking to the people at the park.

 

            Even though Ashby was being very cautious about getting pregnant she and Asher still conceived. Ashby had mixed feelings on the matter, but as her pregnancy went on the more and more she got excited about it.

 

            Asher on the other hand was excited from day one. Every time he walked past Ashby he would grab her arm and stop her in her track so he could talk to their little one. He couldn’t wait for the baby to be born.

 

            Time went by and finally the day came for the Lemi baby to be born. Ashby opted on a home birth and after house of labor she and Asher were blessed with…..

 

Addison Lemi

And

 

Taloria Lemi

 

            Ashby was in the nursery talking care of Taloria when she got a strange phone call. The person on the other line wouldn’t answer her greeting and just about the time she was going to hang up an old shaky voice came on and said, “I want to be in your challenge”

            Ashby said, “I’m sorry I am not doing the challenge anymore.” And hung up.

 

            As I was leaving the Lemi house that night I took this picture this is the sight a strange man standing in the bushes was looking at. As I was leaving I heard him mutter, “Reject me? I will teach you to reject me.” 

 

            Thank you as always for reading. Please come back to see if Asher convinces Ashby to continue her challenge and find out who the strange man in the bushes was. Also I know Ashby would love you to hear you thoughts. Leave a comment here or on her facebook page at Ashby Lemi.
