This was a rough round for some of my poor Neandersims!
I’ll start with some of my less eventful families.
‘Enter THE BLACKS.
Darius turns into such an adorable toddler! Hopefully we can keep him cool and he won’t get taken away
Another baby girl named Blossom!
On to the MOORE family!
Cute little Trella is growing up!
It’s a boy! Jali!
Trella is a child!!
On to the WOODS family!
Pebbles grows into a child!! She got Daddy’s dark hair, which isn’t all that surprising since every Sim child in this neighborhood gets their father’s hair….
Welcome baby Rock!
While out gathering food one night for the next day, Wilma comes across a little girl in the woods. The little girl says that her name is Mara and she’s from another tribe but she and her mommy had to leave the tribe. Wilma asks where her mom is and Mara says that she fell asleep on the ground.
Unfortunately, her mom is not asleep…
They ask where her tribe was and if her father was there, but Mara says she doesn’t have a father, only her mother. Fred and Wilma briefly discuss it, and even though it might mean having less children for them in the long run, they decide to take the little orphan girl in.
Mara hits if off with their neighbor boy, Michael Morton. A little crush, maybe?
And THE SMITH FAMILY!
Twins! Welcome baby Roy and baby Ruthie!!
Dinah becomes a child! (Typically I don’t use mirrors to change hair, I just leave them with whatever they have, but… I’m not so sure about the tiara hair in the Neanderthal age…. so I changed hers.)
Reaching his prime in nature enthusiasm! Good thing he’s good at bringing in the food!
Ruthie is a toddler already!!
And so is Roy! What cuties!
Dinah really is growing up too fast… she’s already asking her parents when they think she’ll get her first kiss!
Over at the MORTON HOUSE…
Tisa invites Till Hamilton over to visit with Michael.
She also introduces him to newborn baby Orlo! He’s her third son in a row… she’s ready to have a girl. She wonders if maybe a baby girl of hers and Till’s might be next…
Orlo is growing up so fast…
Orlo grows up already!!
And at THE HAMILTON HOUSE….
Till comes back from hunting one day to find his wife unconscious in the bathroom floor. When he feels for a pulse, he feels nothing… He pleads for her life and the life of his unborn child, and the grim reaper allows him to play a little game for her life. Till wins the game and the grim reaper cedes her life for now, but assures Till that he will return for her sooner rather than later, warning Till of bad luck coming their way…
Alive and well, a couple of days later Shell goes into labor with a little girl they name Rachel! That sure doesn’t seem like bad luck!
Steve and new baby sister Rachel!
Steve grows into a child!!
Unfortunately Steve spends too much time outside and gets overheated, and before they can cool him down, a group from a neighboring tribe comes in and takes their kids away!!!
Understandably horrified, Till cuddles his newborn daughter before she is taken away.
After they leave, instead of raising a fuss and risking them injuring his other children, Till vows to get his children back if it’s the last thing he does!! Shell is so depressed that she won’t eat and she takes to her bed.
The next morning when Till wakes up, prepared to go to the neighboring tribe to fight for his family, he wakes to find his wife’s body crumpled on the floor beside the bed! The grief must have been too much for her in her already weakened condition… This time, the grim reaper gives Till no choice, taking his wife’s soul before Till can challenge him again.
Poor Till Hamilton! From the top of the world to rock bottom in little more than a week’s time!
Till tries to pick up the pieces of his life. Knowing that his wife is gone forever, he resolves to at least go after his children! He wanted to go after them much faster, but with Shell’s death crippling him, a whole week has passed since his children were taken…
Realizing that he needs a new wife to take care of his children when they return home, and no longer wanting to miss out on any of Michael’s life, Till invites over Tisa. Instead of keeping things secret, he grabs her and gives her a big kiss right in front of her husband.
Baz is none too pleased!! He yells at Till and Till yells right back!
But despite his confidence in Tisa’s feelings for him, when he asks her to move in with him, Tisa rejects him, saying that she’s a married woman and while she has feelings for him, she also has a life and she can’t move in with him as someone else’s wife…
Rejected, Till Hamilton has truly hit the very lowest point of his life.
Back at the Morton house, Baz is furious at the position his wife has put him in.
Consequently, Till–wanting the other man’s wife for himself anyway and with nothing left to lose–fights Baz! Till wins the fight… and as per Neanderthal rules, that means that Till must kill Baz.
And so ends Baz Morton…..
The last of her excuses dissolved, Tisa marries Till and moves her family into his home.
The Morton and Hamilton families are now one….. so my 6 families have dwindled to 5.
