The Sims Life & Times

The Sims, as anyone who plays can attest, takes on a life of its own. I created this blog so I could keep track of my sim stories and share them with others. I've always wanted to write stories but unfortunately I'm not very good at it lol I am hoping that just as my house building has improved so will my storytelling abilities.

My main family is called the Snookers. My goal was to move 1 sim into Relfamtown and see how the population would grow. I hope you will follow along with me.
If you would like to see all the stories in the Relfamtown series then click on Snooker Chronicles to the left and start at the bottom of the list.

UPDATE - Well since I had a major meltdown and lost Relfamtown, the Snookers are now in Sim Heaven and there will not be anymore updates on them :-( Out of the bad comes good though and Tesime is a new neighbourhood that I created for the Test of Time challenge. I hope you will enjoy their stories as well !

Tesime - Round Eight : The Benet chapter

As a child, Ida Benet spent enough time in the garden to increase her knowledge of plants. This was a helpful skill to have as you can imagine ! Meanwhile growing like a weed himself, Benito aged into a child. He is the youngest of the Benet clan so this was a bitter sweet moment for his mom, Belle. The population of Tesime was growing, but so far they were not aware of any outsiders living among the residents. As the family was about to learn though there is always someone out to screw you over !

One night as they slept their innocent sleep and dreamed their innocent dreams a dark figure snuck onto the lot and took several of their meager possessions. The whole island was shocked that such a thing could happen and they took it upon themselves to search the forests to see if they could find the scoundrel. Poor little Ida seemed to take it the worse and cried herself to sleep for many nights. Even her father, Skalton, could not comfort his little girl. When she aged to a teenager her parents could finally see a change in her. Thankfully she began to smile again.

It was the rainy season in Tesime and the Benet's found out first hand just how destructive mother nature can be. As the rain poured out of the sky, lightning struck a tree at the edge of the forest. Running to see the damage Skalton, Ida and Tre Gallant watched helplessly as a tree began to burn. Thankfully the driving rain came to their aid and the fire was quickly extinguished. Unfortunately lightning does indeed strike twice ! Later while Benito was out tending the garden another bolt set fire to a tree. Being a curious kid he ran over to see what was going on but he could not get very close as the flames raged. Hearing the commotion Skalton and Belle ran to see what was happening. Acting quickly and thankful they had a pond on their land, they ran to fill their animal bladders with water to douse the fire. It took a huge effort as the hot spots continued to ignite but they finally succeeded in saving their homestead. Realizing how close death actually was to their doorstep Skalton and Belle decided to celebrate life !
