Ashby Lemi – Babies 26, 27 and 28 Part 2

After Holden and his family left time just moved along line normal, kids grew and moved on and life was good.

            I had to leave for my home country for a while on a family emergency, so I am unable to get the pictures during that time. 

**Author’s note: I lost my game again so I was unable to get some of the pictures I normally would have had L **

            Ashby told me that Addison and Taloria aged into beautiful teens and moved to France. Taloria is going to design clothes for a company out there and Addison is going to take in the scenery for her new book.

            Life was going along greatly, but then Lockland turned into a teen and found out that Asher wasn’t his dad. After he learned this his behavior started to be destructive and rebellious. He wouldn’t listen to either Ashby or Asher, and when he was at his most vulnerable Darko entered the picture. He went behind Ashby’s back and would meet Lockland outside of the school and tell him about his vampire heritage and how much he was sorry that he was forced out of his life as a baby, toddler and child. 

            Lockland had been so hurt at finding out that Asher wasn’t his dad and Taloria and Addison were only his half sisters that he bought into all of Darko’s lies and soon he ran away from the Lemi household forever and moved in with his dad. This devastated Ashby and Asher, but as a unit they are strong and they got each other through it.

            This event caused Asher to push Ashby even harder to continue her challenge and to get cured of her vampirism. She finally consented to being cured, but wouldn’t budge on continuing her challenge.

            With Ashby being so stubborn the two learned pretty quickly that the house they were living in was too small for just the two of them so they moved from their beach house property to a lot nearby. The bought a quaint little two bedroom cottage and for a while they were content. 

            In hopes that Ashby would one day continue her challenge Asher made her promise not to get a job so it wasn’t long before she felt the silence of the house when he was at work, and when she finally came to him with the suggestion of adopting a child he was all for it. He too missed kids around the house and he hope that it could be an opening to get Ashby to continue with her challenge.

            Ashby called the adoption agency and set up an appointment. While Asher was filling out paperwork Ashby met and spend the afternoon with a little boy name Keskey.   She fell in love immediately and wanted him to be the one she too home. The agency told her that wasn’t possible, but Ashby would not take no for an answer. A few weeks later Keskey came home to the Lemi house.

 

            Welcome home Keskey Lemi.




 

 

 

 

            Keskey was a cute and imaginative young boy. As soon as the Lemi’s brought him home he began to flourish and he loved the old costume chest the other Lemi kids left behind. 

            He wanted to be prince and rule over the whole house, he wanted to be a astronaut and explore the skies. 

 

            He wanted to be a submarine captain and hunt down Moby Dick.

 

            He wanted to be a general to lead the Sims into battle and leave it in peace.


 

 

            He wanted to be a great adventurer and travel the globe and tell every one of those adventures.


 

 

            Keskey kept Ashby and Asher on their toes, but the couple knew that to make a marriage work they had to find time for each other as well. The two would spend time together at the park, or go to a movie or just for a stroll. There was never any doubt that the two were in love.


 

 

            With all the dreams Keskey had Ashby and Asher wanted to help him make them all come true, but how? They started by getting him enrolled in after school scouting on M, T and Thursdays. He had a great time and learned many things such as saluting and tying knots.

 

            Time does what time does and it moved along. Then Asher got a wild idea to take his small family on a vacation. As he logged onto the computer he found a file that he had never looked at before. Being a curious sim he doubled clicked on it and the video that Ashby’s first husband and Asher’s dear friend Connery made for her. (for those that don’t remember the video or is new to the blog you can find it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=plqFb2Aiwy4 )

            It moved him and brought tears to his eyes. He knew he could not allow Ashby to give up her challenge. It meant the world to her and he was determined to make her remember that.

 

            When Asbhy got home from helping out at Keskey’s school Asher poured them both a cup of hot coffee and they sat down to talk. He told her everything he was feeling from watching Connery’s video to wanting more kids around the house to him wanting her to continue her challenge.

            She told him that she did want to continue her challenge, but she couldn’t bear to be with any other man. 

            Then Asher surprised her……

            “I have a plan about that. We are going to continue your challenge as a sold couple but we Lemi’s are going to break some more rules. I propose that we talk to Vi and A.J., and by the way they will be here in an hour, about IVF. If we incorporate that, having children of our own and adopting we should get through the next 74 children with no problem.” Asher gave her a big smile.

            “You called Vi and A.J., and don’t you mean 75 children?” Ashby questioned.        

            He winked at her and said, “We are going to count Keskey as baby 26 and move forward. So what do you say? Are you back on board with this challenge.” 

            “What will the other challenge mom’s think of me including adoption and kids of our own?” Ashby was worried about the rules she has already broken and the rules they were thinking of breaking.

            “Babe, it really doesn’t matter. Those women are your friends and they will love you no matter what. You need to do what you need to do for your challenge and with the issues you have had and us getting married before you ending the challenge I think this the best way.”

            After more talking Ashby finally agreed.

 

            Their visit with Violet and A.J. was very productive. Violet gave her the number for the IVF doctor she used and told her what to except and how it worked. While the girls chatted about that A.J. and Asher came up with a plan for a new house for Asher and Ashby.   You see AandV design had agreed to build them a new home. Ashby once again began to get excited about her challenge.

 

            A few weeks after it was decided that Ashby would start her challenge again an old friend from Twinbrook showed up on their door step with a familiar request.

 

            “Basil Greensnip, what brings you to Sunset Valley?” Ashby hugs her old friend and is glad to see him.

            Basil, as animated as ever, begins to explain how crazy Twinbrook is without her and that he missed their friendship. She reassured him that she missed him too, then he came out with the real reason he was in Sunset Valley.

            “Ashby, as you know I moved to Twinbrook to take part in your cousin, Harmony’s, 100 baby challenge, but she disappeared and then you and I became real good friends. We talked about me partaking in yours but the time was never right. I read Mother’s Monthly and it says you are thinking about not continuing your challenge and I am here to implore you not to give up on it and let me be the next dad.” He said this all in one breath and took a sigh of relief when he was done.

            “Well Basil if you have read that you know that I am married to Asher now…”

            He cuts her off, “Yes I do and I think that is wonderful. I was there when Connery passed I remember your heartache, but….”

            It was her turn to cut him off. “I am going to continue my challenge just not in the traditional way. Basil, if you are willing to go through IVF then I would love for you to be the dad to baby 27.” 

            He grabbed her hand and smiled broadly. “Thank you Ashby thank you.”

 

            The night after Ashby went through her first IVF treatment she tucked Keskey into bed, kissed his forehead and told him he may have a new brother or sister soon.

 

            When the first signs of pregnancy showed on Ashby’s body she couldn’t help but smile.

            And soon the Lemi household was blessed with two bouncing baby girls.

            Carter Greensnip Lemi (named after fellow challenge mom Carter Mason). Carter rolled the Insane and Virtuoso traits.

            And Capri Greensnip Lemi, she rolled the Absent Minded and Neurotic traits.

Ashby Lemi – Babies 26,27 and 28 part 1

ASHBY LEMI’S 100 BABY CHALLENGE

BABY 26. 27 and 28

**Author’s note: this post is not written in the correct tense…most of it is past tense and I am sorry for that. I should have gone back and corrected it, but I just wanted to finally get it out. I apologize for the mess and hope you still enjoy.***

If you are 15 or younger please make sure you are ok’d to read this. I have adult content and I don’t want you to get in trouble.

 

            Ashby went to take Lockland up to his crib, when Taloria stopped her.  

            “Mom, what is that?” She asked in her most quizzical voice.

            “This is your new brother, Lockland.” Ashby was very tired after giving birth, but she always made time for her children.

            “He doesn’t look like daddy.” Taloria cocked her head to the right and look upon the small babe before her.

            Ashby sighed. How could she explain the situation to the young girl? She just smiled at the girl, reached up and bushed her thumb across her daughters chin in a loving manor and said, “Sweetie, Lockland is tired. I need to take him to bed.” 

            Taloria as okay with that and went to find Addison to play before it was their time to go to bed.

 

            Wren got asked out for her very first date by a guy from another school, they met at the park, but she was heartbroken when he didn’t show up. She had saved her allowance for a new dress and hair do, and she felt that it was for nothing. Ashby tried to explain to her that these things happened and that it was him and not her, but she would not believe her. We think this is the even that triggered Wren to become a difficult teen. 

 

            One sunny afternoon Ashby was sitting under the canopy of her newly redecorated deck, being a vampire didn’t allow her to be outside for very long in the sun and she missed out on what her kids were doing so Asher and A.J. built her the deck, when Addison came around the side of the house yelling at her.

            “Mommy, Mommy, look!” She ran up to Ashby and kept waiving a magazine at her. 

            She was so excited that it took Ashby several minutes to get the young girl to settle down enough to hand her what she had been waiving in her face. Ashby was stunned to learn that she had been featured in Challenge Mother’s Monthly. She had been interviewed when she first moved to Sunset Valley, but she never expected to be featured. This was a spectacular even for the Lemi household and it was all the kids talked about for weeks. Addison even took the magazine to school for show and tell. 

***Author’s note…I would like to thank Dawn Turner for making this for me. This is truly special! ***


 

 

 

            Holden has always looked up to his big sister Wren, and seeing her pull pranks and putting hair dye in her shower when he was a child gave him the prank bug. From ding dong ditch to setting frogs loose into the school he spent his free time pulling pranks.

 

            Asher and Ashby finally got frustrated with all the trouble he was getting into and they enrolled him some afterschool activities. There he and his childhood friend Bella Bachelor became close. After school they were together in their activities and on the weekends they were together doing homework or just spending time around town. 

            They were very cute together.

 

            The vampire in Ashby started to take over. She was out for one of her late night strolls when the urge to hunt hit her. This time her target was none other than her best friend Violet Newbie. 

            Luckily Ashby’s Sim side was able to get the Vampire side under control and she fed on someone else. 

            She didn’t like what she was becoming but she still felt it was a worthy punishment for letting down her girls.

 

            Even though Lockland wasn’t his biological child Asher didn’t love him any less. He spent a lot of time with the babe and took him outdoors during the day when Ashby wasn’t able to. He still hated Darko for the why he treated his wife, but he couldn’t hate the outcome.

            The two spent oodles of time together and Lockland had no clue that Asher wasn’t his daddy.

 

            While Ashby encourages Holden improve on his schooling and skills Wren devises a devious plan.

 

            And that night as Holden got ready for bed he was the victim of that devious plan when the sink went haywire and soaked him from head to toe, the pranks in the Lemi household was getting out of control. Would this behavior catch on with Addison, Taloria and Lockland?

 

Where are you going my little one

Little one

Where are you going my baby my own

Turn around and your 2, turn around and your 4

Turn around and you’re a young man walking out the door.

Turn around Turn around

Turn around and you’re a young man walking out the door.

            Ashby sang to her little boy. She knew it was only a matter of time before it was time to age Lockland into a tot. 

***Author’s note: this song is something my mom sang to my brother and I (mine was young lady) when we were growing up***

 

            Holden and Bella continued to spend a lot of time together. They two were inseparable and Ashby and Asher thought that she was a good influence on him for his pranks and misbehaving had subsided. 

 

            It was time to age Lockland up and he inherited his mom’s hair coloring and his dads red eyes. He was a very handsome toddler and was loved by the whole Lemi household.

 

            In one of his last rebellious acts Holden added blue and green to his hair. Actually I think he looks pretty handsome so his act backfired on him.



 

 

 

            “I’m gonna get you, I’m gonna to get you.” Asher teases Lockland as he tickles him with the “claw”.

            With Ashby still a vampire and not allowed in the sun much Asher spends even more time with Lockland making sure that he got out side for fun and fresh air time. Ashby felt so left out, but she was so glad to have a man like Asher as her husband. 


 

 

            Who are these fine men? Oh yes they are the Lemi twins, A.J. on the right and Asher on the left. Violet, A.J., Ashby and Asher get together quite often. Ashby is grateful that she moved to Sunset Valley where she had some many people that loved her. After her parents died she felt quite alone in Twinbrook.

 

            Addison is the dreamer of the family. She would go to bed early and just sit in her bed thinking of new and interesting stories. 



 

 

 

            Then she would talk Taloria into dressing up with her and acting out the story. 

            Once upon a time there lived two princesses. The land had come upon hard times when pink dragon (dinosaur costume was all they had) threatened the livelihood. He would swoop down on unsuspecting people on his flying contraption and scare them half to death. The people of the land wanted the princess to save and protect the, but the two young girls didn’t know what to do. One day a strangely dressed stranger came to the princesses. He told them that he was from the future and that he could help them with their problem. The girls took him up on his offer and the man in the white suit disappeared into the fog and neither he nor the pink dragon was heard from ever again.

            She has such an imagination and the Lemi’s think that someday she will grow up to be a write or something creative like that.



 

 

 

            Being a child of two vampires tends to show itself in the most inopportune times. Lockland is both a sweet and beautiful boy with a nasty temper and weird behaviors, like trying to suck the blood out of his teddy bear. 

            Tisk Tisk *Ashby* was this a good idea?


 

 

            Time seems to flies when you’re having fun the old saying goes, and it was soon time for Lockland to be a child. What a handsome boy. He wears these goggles because he says he wants to be a super hero and save mommies like Ashby from mean doers, but no one has seen a super hero with a temper like his.

 

            See what I mean?



 

 

 

            A few days after Lockland aged up it was time for Wren to be a Young Adult. The Lemi’s had a family party (and me) and after Wren aged up and designed herself a new dress Ashby sat the kids down and told him a scary story. 

            Perhaps that imagination Addison has comes from her mommy.


 

 

            Ashby decided that a picture with the kids before they leave is going to be a new tradition with the Lemi family. Asher was a bit excited about the prospect of Wren graduation and couldn’t keep himself from cheering. Perhaps he will be a little more calmed down when it is Holden’s turn.

 

            What a breathtaking young woman she turned out to be.

The next morning the whole family dressed up in their Sunday best and headed to the court house where Wren graduated. After the ceremony she hugged her parents and siblings and got on a bus and headed to her new life. She was heading back to the land where her biological parents grew up in hopes she can find out more about her and Holden’s parents and life before the Lemi household.


 

 

            What is happening at the Lemi household? Boys driving on the couch and a princess and a dinosaur playing video games? 


 

 

 

            Ah young love. Do you think that Bella will become Mrs. Starr Bright or do you think she will leave Holden and fulfill her destiny of being with the Goth boy?




 

 

 

 

            It was time for the twins to age into teens. Ashby got them together for a cute childhood photo, don’t they look cute? Taloria with her fire red hair like her mom’s and Addison with darker red hair with blonde highlights like her dad’s, these two girls are just precious. 

            Aging didn’t change the views of the girls at all. Taloria still wanted to be a fashion designer when she grew up and Addison wanted to be a well renowned author.    I sure hope these two make their dreams come true.


 

 

           

            Time passed for the Lemi’s and soon it was time for Holden to age into a young adult. To Ashby’s surprise Bella came to her and asked they could throw a double party for she too wanted to age up. She couldn’t bear not being with him. Ashby agreed and the Bachelor/Lemi families held a big coming to age party.

            Holden grew into a handsome young adult. He decided to keep his rebellious hair-do and it looks great on him. 

            Bella has very long features, and pretty big eyes. I can’t wait to see if these two have kids… I have a feeling if they do they will be pretty cute.

 

 

            The two got some “couple’s” pictures as the party went well into the night. The next day the two graduated, but Holden decided to stay at home for just a bit long and Ashby was thrilled.


 

 

            Soon the days turned into weeks and finally Holden popped the question to Bella. He asked her to be his one and only and she could say nothing but yes.

            The next step was to send out the invitations to all. 

***Author’s note: I would like to thank Violet Newbie for making this invitation for me. She did a beautiful job. ***

 

            Holden is Ashby’s 2nd child to get married and since Elvira and Lars eloped Ashby insisted on a big wedding. She would not take no for an answer. All the arrangements were made, the bachelor/bachelorette parties were had and finally the day came. The two would join together.

            Ashby cried as any good mother should and the two had a great day with their family and friends. 

            At the reception the newly married couple made an announcement that they were expecting. Ashby was over the moon with this announcement. This would be her 3rd grandchild (her firsts are Dallas and Tucker Turner read about them in Dawn Turners blog here: http://dawnturnersbabychallenge.blogspot.com/p/chapters.html ). 

            She insisted that Holden and Bella stayed with them until at least the baby was born and the young couple agreed, both of them were very comfortable in the Lemi household.        


 

 

            Being stuck indoors gave Bella and Ashby time to get to know one another better. Ashby was enjoying being on the outside of a pregnancy for once. She talked to the baby and she and Bella exercised almost daily. It was a great boding experience for them while the men were at work and the children were at school.

 

            Soon Bella and Holden came home with a beautiful baby girl named Alyce. The three of them stayed on until Alyce became a toddler and then they moved on to their own home.

 

            Here is little Alyce as a toddler. Isn’t she cute? She got her daddy’s hair and I am sure her dark eyes are from her mom’s side. Ashby just loved this little girl and it was hard to think that after her party she and her parents would be moving on.


 

 

            At Alyce’s party Ashby made sure the family photos were taken. First was Holden with his parents. Asher what is up with you always cheering when your kids are getting ready to leave the house?


 

 

            Next is Holden and his new family. I think Alyce looks a lot like her dad. 

 

            Finally Ashby, Asher and their granddaughter Alyce.

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.

            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.
