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.
