Ashby Lemi – Babies 60 and 61

“UNEDITED”

Screenshot-208

Jenixa continued with her dancing as she entered high school and she became really good at it.  She was the top performer in her dance class and her instructor, Allan Stevens, was very impressed with her skills.

One evening she got to class as bit early so she sat down to do some homework when a dreamy eyed kid sat down next to her.

“Hi!” He said a little too enthusiastically which startled Jenixa.

When she regained her wits she looked up at him and gave him a small smile.  “Hi.”

“I’m sorry to be so bold, but you are the prettiest girl I have ever seen.  What is your name?”

She couldn’t help but laugh at this.  Sure she was quite popular in school, having friends from all cliques, but she hadn’t been called pretty before.  Well unless you count her Uncle Logan and her family.

“My name is Jenixa Lemi.  What’s yours?”  She couldn’t keep the laugh out of her tone.

“My name is Cougar Fey.  Why do you find it funny that I called you pretty?”  The boy was generally confused.

Jenixa decided to skip over that part and just address the part about the boys last name being Fey.  “Your last name if Fey?  My uncle Logan’s last name is Fey.”

Panic washed over this boy’s face.  “You’re related to Logan Fey?”

“Well not by blood.  He is the father of two of my siblings and well we just hit it off.  We kind of adopted each other.”  She laughed again.

“Oh good.”

“Good?”  It was her turn to be confused.

“My real, blood uncle is Logan Fey.  I was worried we were related.”  He was a very forward young man.

“Oh..”  Blush filled Jenixa’s green cheeks.  “I don’t mean to be rude Cougar, but I want to finish this assignment before my dance class starts.”

Screenshot-12

“Well then I will join you.”  As they studied Cougar kept on talking.  He told her he was in Sunlit Tides to participate in the dance academy and was staying with this Uncle Logan.  There wasn’t a dance studio where he came from and since the class was very small, there were only four students before Cougar, Mr. Stevens accepted him right away.

Finally the class got underway and Mr. Stevens was so excited to have Cougar with them.  Bringing the class to five allowed him to do the end of the year recital he had always wanted to do so he conveyed his plan right away.

Screenshot-225

All the kids were excited and they got to work right away.  They practiced three nights a week and on Saturday’s.

Screenshot-28

Jenixa, Julie, Farah and Aiden were already great friends having grown up together, but it wasn’t long before they had all accepted Cougar.  He fit with them like a puzzle piece.  Not only was he fitting well with the group he and Jenixa were growing closer, but any time he asked her out she made it into a group thing.  He didn’t mind, as he loved the rest of them, but he was getting frustrated.  He wasn’t sure where their relationship was heading or if they were even on the same page in regards to that.

While Jenixa was busy with her dance, Lolita was busy with….well…everything.  First it was bird watching, then it was bug collecting, then studying bees, and playing with Cesar and then rock collecting.  She was always outside doing something “important” and I couldn’t do anything but encourage her curiosity, but that meant that it was just Joab and I most days.

I spent my days observing my special little boy.  His father is a genie and he was born human but as I watch him I find that he isn’t without some of his father’s special talents.  He seemed to bond with the animals around the house.  It was almost as if he understood them.

Screenshot-250

The cats loved him and they always wanted to be around him.  When he was outside Cesar sought him out.  I also noticed that if you were upset or just having a bad day an energy radiated off him and even though you really didn’t want to talk about it and knew he didn’t understand you , you found yourself telling him your woes.  He truly was something special.

Not to worry.  Lolita and I had our special time as well.  After her great adventures outside she would ask me to cuddle up on my bed and watch cartoons with her.  Granted she fell asleep most of the time but I enjoyed the bonding moments with her.

Screenshot-13 (2)

Of course there were days she didn’t drift into dreamland and she filled me in on all of her adventures.  These days with my kids go by way too fast.

Honolulu Sapphire

As always the challenge must go on and the next birthstone daddy was ready to partake.  His name was Honolulu Sapphire and yes he too was a genie.

He popped into town and in no time at all I was pregnant.  He told he had some business to attend to in another country, and he gave me some contact numbers to let him know as soon as the baby was born.  He left with a friendly hug.

~~

Screenshot-229

Summer vacation was just around the corner and it was time for Jenixa’s big show.  Asher and I dressed in our best outfits and headed down to the dance hall.  I have to admit the show was pretty impressive and all the kids were great, but I was so very impressed with my little girl.  She was such a superstar.

Screenshot-235

The performance ended with a solo from the girls in the class.  Their moves were full of beauty and grace.

Screenshot-236

Jenixa was a vision in peach.  I was in awe that a child of mine had such talent, such grace and charm.  It was a stunning piece.

When the concert was over Jenixa asked us to let her stay for a while.  Mr. Stevenson had an announcement to make.  She would catch a ride back with Cougar.   Asher and I agreed and after chattering to some of the other parents we headed home.

Screenshot-14

Back stage Mr .Stevenson gushed about how good the kids were and he informed them he had an announcement to make.

“I just got word that both Jenixa and Cougar have been accepted into the Sunset Valley dance company.  Jenixa has been accepted as a principal and Cougar in the line.”

The kids cheered this was great news.

“Right after graduation the two of you will be heading to Sunset Valley.  Your first performance will be Swan Lake.”

Screenshot-15

The news made my even keeled girl a bit emotional.  Mr. Steven’s pulled her into a hug and congratulated her.  It was truly some wonderful news.

Screenshot-20

The next day was a Sunday and Asher and I took the kids, who had become a staple at our home, to the beginning of summer festival.  They partook in eating contests, which Farah always won, snow cones, water balloon fights, face painting and skating.

Screenshot-25

At first skating wasn’t Lolita’s thing, but she soon got the hang of it and was cursing around the rink.

Screenshot-23

The day was coming to an end and Cougar pulled Jenixa aside.  Without realizing that she was on a hill he tried to take her by surprise and kiss her catching her chin in the process.

Screenshot-24

“What on earth do you think you are doing Cougar Fey?”  She was quite upset with his actions.

“Listen here Jenixa Lemi.  I love you and I want you to be my girl.”  His old self surfacing.

“Don’t do this Cougar….don’t do this!”

“Do what?  Tell you how I feel?”

“You’re going to ruin our friendship.”  She hissed.

“Well honestly my dear at this point it is all or nothing.  After the summer we are moving to a new city and if you aren’t willing to return my love then I will have to move on.”

“That isn’t fair.”  Jenixa was confused about her feelings and Cougar could see it in her eyes.

Screenshot-22

He lunged forward, scooped her up into the air and brought her lips down to his.  As soon as their lips met Jenixa stopped struggling and relaxed into his embrace.  When they pulled apart he smiled at her and said, “Why isn’t it fair?”

“Because I don’t want you to move on from me.”  She whispered back.

From that moment on they were more inseparable than ever.  Ready to face their new lives together.

~~

By the end of the summer my little ballerina, and her boyfriend, had aged up and were ready to venture on to their new lives.

Screenshot-16 (2)

She had aged into a fine young woman and I knew she would make her dad and I proud of her.  We said our good-byes and I held her tight.  When I finally had to let go, my little bird flew out the door.

~~

Next it was birthday time at the Lemi’s and both Lolita and Joab aged up.

Screenshot-3 (3)

Lolita aged into a beautiful teenager.  Most of her feature are attributed to her dad.  Her big blue eyes were noticed by all.

Screenshot (4)

Joab, oh my little Joab.  He grew up into such a sweet and kind hearted little man.  He was respectful and empathetic to those around him, and he loved to dance.

Screenshot-19 (2)

Finally our house was blessed by babies 60 and 61.  Ireland and Kenley Sapphire Lemi.  Both of them inherited their father’s blue skin, but that is where their similarities end.  Ireland got her daddies hair color, my eye color and was human.  Kenley got her grandma Mirid’s hair color, her dad’s blue eyes and she was a genie.  I can’t wait to see how these two will bless our lives.

Thank you all for reading.  You are why I continue doing this challenge.  I hope you like how I have little story lines for the kids.  I have a plan in mind for Lolita and Joab that I hope you all enjoy. 

I would love to hear what you think and you can tell me in the comments.  Please and thank you.

Ashby Lemi – Baby 59

“And we went to a festival…..and and we played basketball..…and and we even kissed in the rain.”  Hardy was running his mouth about a mile a minute telling us about his visit to see his best friend Izzy Daniels in Crystalline Cove.

“You did what?”  I raised my eyebrow up at my son.  I was just teasing him, but he didn’t know that and that is what makes being mom the best.

Hardy clapped his hand over his mouth, “I didn’t mean to tell you that.”  He stared at me with wide eyes.

I laughed and rubbed his back.  “I know baby, its okay.  I won’t let the cat out of the bag.”  I gave him a reassuring smile.  I didn’t like hearing that my teenage boy was out kissing girls I had never met, but they live far enough apart, right?

Raven, who had been sitting at the table listening in silence, let out a heavy sigh, got up from the table causing the chair to tip over, and ran to her bedroom.

Hardy stood up from his own chair and went to pick up Raven’s, “What’s wrong with her?”

I pushed my chair away from the table and stood up, “I’m not sure she’s been acting very odd, since you left.”  I headed towards Raven’s bedroom.

I slowly opened her door, “Honey, are you okay?”

My little girl lay on her bed, face down, just sobbing and it broke my heart to see her that way.  Walking to her bed I sat down at the edge and rubbed her back as she cried.  When her sobs became less serious  I pulled her up from her laying position into my arms hugging her close to my chest, stroking her hair  I asked, “What is a darling?”

Taking deep breaths trying to stop her crying altogether she finally uttered one word.  “Werewolf.”

Here we go again.  My little girl, for some odd reason, thinks that Hardy gets the things he wants in life because he is a werewolf.  What she doesn’t understand is that he works for the things he wants and she could obtain what she wanted as well if she did the same thing.  I felt bad for my daughter that she was always so upset about the fact that she wasn’t a werewolf, but at the same time it was becoming tiresome and the beautiful bonding moment became a full fledged argument.  I left her room feeling frustrated that one of my children couldn’t appreciate what they had been blessed with.

After that Time moved along quickly.  The kids were doing great in school, even Raven who had withdrawn from the rest of us, and Lolita was a handful.  She required a lot of attention and everyone pitched in to help.

Hardy spent every spare moment he had either on the phone or the computer with his friend Izzy and after talking to Mr. Daniel’s on the phone I felt quite comfortable with their budding relationship.  Raven spent a lot of time studying or at the local library.  Anything to avoid her family, but I couldn’t complain as she was bring home wonderful grades.   Jenixa was a joy with her sweet outgoing personality and she was very popular in school and was even involved in dance.  The only thing in my household that wasn’t going well was Asher and I.  He and his partner in the restaurant have been presented with an opportunity to open a resort in a place called Island Paradise and he eagerly wanted to pursue it which meant that he wanted me to uproot my life and the kid’s life yet again.  I understood that it was a great opportunity for him, but I was tired of moving and already so many of my children were spread out.  We found ourselves in argument after argument and that was only if he was home.

Screenshot-363

Despite our fights life has to go on and soon Lolita had learned her skills and it was time for me to find the next father in the challenge.  The next birthstone father was unavailable and I wasn’t sure what I was going to until I met an interesting fellow named Alchemy Legerdemain (Thank you Tantalizing Sims for making him for me).  He was a genie.  No I’m not lying he was a true genie and he was in town on business.  He had read about my challenge and was contemplating looking me up to see if he could participate when he ran into me at the park.  He took out meeting as a sign.  I agreed to let him be the next father and soon I was pregnant.

Then before I knew it, it was time for another Lemi mass birthday part.

Screenshot-369

Hardy aged into a handsome, just like his father Logan Fey, man.  Just a few days after their birthday Izzy made her way to Sunlit Tides.  I have to admit she is a charming girl who was raised right.  I agreed to let her stay with us until the two of them could find a house.

Screenshot-387

However, Hardy had more plans than just to moving in together.  So two days before they were to move into their new house he took Izzy to the park, they had grown to think of as their park, and proposed to her.  Of course she said yes and wedding plans were in the works.  (See Jackson Daniel’s blog for the full wedding).

Screenshot-371

Raven aged into a stunning young woman.  She had no idea what she wanted to do with her life, but she had decided she wanted to go to college.  We did the paper work and she was set to leave soon after Hardy and Izzy’s wedding.

Screenshot-373

Jenixa aged into a fun and laid-back girl.  When she wasn’t donned in her dance costumes she enjoyed T-shirts and jeans.  She was very good-natured and got along with most everyone she met.

Screenshot-377

Lolita is still a handful as a child, but that is because she is interested in everything and anything and wants to do it all.

Hardy and Izzy's Wedding 1

Hardy and Izzy's Wedding 2

Hardy and Izzy's Wedding 3

Hardy and Izzy’s wedding was beautiful.  (Pictures curtsey of the Jackson Daniel’s baby challenge) Raven even seem to have a good time.  Ever since she enrolled into college her attitude had one a 180.  She was fun to be around again and I thought that college would really help her find herself.

When she got to the University everything changed and I got a letter from her every week.  I was glad we were back on track in our relationship and I was happy that another of my babies, Song and Rue also attended,  got to attend the university.

Screenshot-412

At first her letters were slightly concerning.  She sounded down and back to her old self, but once she started to make friends the letter started to change.

Screenshot-414

Then her letters talked about the parties she was attending.  She was out there making friends and having fun for the first time in her life.  I wasn’t really keen on the juicers she wrote about but I was glad she was out there making memories and I just had to remind myself that I trusted her and she would be okay.

Screenshot-420

Her major was communications and she made sure to let me know that despite all her fun she was still working hard and maintaining a good GPA.

Screenshot-421

It wasn’t long until the subject of her letters turned to boys, well one boy.  His name was Sterling Sowell and Raven was head over heels with him.

Screenshot-410

She wrote to me about how they met at a rally.  She had attended to see what it was all about and he was just hanging out at the Quad playing kicky ball with a friend.  When their eyes met something, a feeling, a sensation ran up her spine.  Neither one of them could break their eye contact and Sterling was even hit in the face with the kicky ball, good thing they are semi soft and his friend was a bad player.  Sterling walked away from his game, introduced himself and once he had her name he asked her on a date.

Her letter went on to tell me about their first date.  He took her bowling and right before closing time he pulled her into his arms asking her to dance.  She was perplexed by this because they were in a bowling alley and the only music playing was some song with a lot of base.  She had protested at first saying that people would think them to be odd, but he just began to sway with her and said, “I don’t care what people think, do you?”

It sounds like this boy is really pulling my baby out of her shell and allowing her to appreciate the things in her life.

Screenshot-415

However, not all relationships are perfect and during the first full moon she found out a very big secret Sterling had been keeping from her, and when she found out it was like her past was catching up with her.

Sterling was a werewolf and when he went to pick her up that night he hoped that she would understand and still love him the way she had been for all those weeks prior.  When Raven saw him she just stood there dumbfounded and didn’t know what to say.  She had finally thought that she had escaped werewolves and her need to be one.

Screenshot-416

Sterling either thought the silence was a good thing or he was trying to break the silence, but either way he thought it was a good idea to take her in his arms and kiss her.

Screenshot-417

That wasn’t acceptable in Raven’s book.  She shoved him away and fled down the stairs.

Sterling went after her and explained everything.  Has was a born werewolf and he doesn’t normally talk about his condition because he found people were cruel and he felt that he was cursed, but he just tried to embrace who he was instead of what he was.

Screenshot-419

Flowers seem to always aid in an apology or an “Surprise I’m a supernatural being” and when Sterling gave her a bouquet of red roses she knew that she loved him for his heart and it didn’t matter that he was a beast at his core.  After that the two were inspirable.

She would return for break soon and I couldn’t wait to see her.

~~

When she and Sterling arrived home there was a change in the house.

Screenshot-432

I had another new look and ….

Screenshot-439

I had, had my baby with Alchemy.  I called him Joab.  It was concerning that I had another single birth, but he was such a wonderful little boy.  I was happy to have some bonding time with just him.  He looks like a little mini-me with this father’s wonderfully lovely ears.  Even though he wasn’t born a genie we noticed early one that he had some, well let’s call them talents.

Screenshot-431

Not long after their arrival Raven pulled me aside.  She had something big she wanted to talk to me about.

“Mom, I don’t want you to be upset, but…”

“Raven, why would I be upset?”

“Well…”she rubbed the back of her neck.  “Sterling and I…Um…we are married and we have a baby on the way.”

I looked at my daughter with a stunned expression.  I was happy for her of course, but why hadn’t she told Logan and I she was getting married?  We would have thrown her a big wedding.  And a baby…why hadn’t she told us before this?

“I’m sorry I didn’t tell you but this is something you want to tell in person.”  I looked deep into my daughter’s eyes and saw true happiness.  Something I hadn’t seen since she was a toddler and my heart forgave her right then and there.

“Well I don’t want to be there when you tell your dad.”  I chuckled and I meant it.

We had a great visit and I hugged her tight when she and Sterling left my home forever.  I will never forget my beautiful Raven.  She will make a great mother and the prefect wife.  I can’t wait to hear all about her life.

Screenshot-451

Screenshot-453

They had a baby boy and named him Kyle.  He inherited my eyes and current hair color and I couldn’t be more proud.  I was ecstatic to hear that they had another baby on the way.

Thank you as always for reading.  I have been doing this challenge for two and a half years.  If it weren’t for those of you that read regularly and the amazing genetics that result in doing this challenge I may have given it up long ago so from the bottom of my heart I thank you.

Please leave me a comment.  I really would love to hear your thoughts.
