Granite Legacy: Chapter 13

Dear Diary,

when I look back at  my childhood and early teen years it is not the big things that I remember. Those that changed the world. It is the small things that changed our family:

2015-06-01_08-23-2I remembered the long evenings when me an mom sat on my bed talking or reading. She used to make up all these amazing short stories about a dark haired princess heroine who had a big brave heart and who went out in the world helping people making it a better place

2015-05-24_05-43I remember the times I spent together with my sister with fondness. We could play chess and talk for hours. But that was before, before everything changed…

 

2015-06-02_07-28-2Our brother Fredrik were many years older than us which meant we got first row tickets to all the drama in his life when he was growing up.

But as we got older we also grew exponentially closer. It was for example we and not our parents who got the news that he and Robin had exchanged Promise Rings. Not yet, but someday….  Oh, the smile on his face totally melted my heart! I guess  that was his defining moment to. because he stopped pretending he was this hard-ass mohawk rocker and became the  brother I knew he had always been!

2015-06-04_16-28Unfortunately did the bond me and Linn had had when we were children not last and grow stronger into teen-hood.  What had once been two pieces completing each other were now so obvious the shining light and the shadow. I was so jealous of my sister: Skinny, beutiful blond and just so much better than I ever could hope to achieve.

2015-06-02_16-42But how could I when I was so obviously the black sheep sheep in the family. She and Fredrick had been given all the good stuff. Both looks and intelligence. How could you compete with that?

2015-06-04_16-32-2My strategy was very straghtforward: Focus on becoming as beutiful as possible, so that I one day would hopefully become as beutiful as my sister. I started eating on a strict diet and set up a rigourous training regimen.

2015-06-03_06-26Some days mom accompanied me….

2015-06-04_16-46… and some days I trained in blissful solitude. Mom was great, dont misunderstand me. But some days she was just too much…. mom.

If I had know what was coming though I would have made different choices though.

  1. Aww…that’s tough to read! She’s so beautiful to me. Skinny and blonde isn’t where it’s at!

    I hope she falls in love with herself just the way she is!

  2. A Rose in Bloom said it just right! I love seeing sims with curves!

    I’m sorry she’s not as close to her sister as she once was. They grew in very different directions. Frederick is just adorable. Are promise rings a thing in Sims 4? If not, how’d you get a pic of him putting a ring on his sweetie as a teen?

    • Yup, promise rings are for real in Sims 4! The teenagers can do quite a lot of different things compared to Adults. But in some ways they are restricted as well!
