Oh they ARE taking over the world, slowly though. Strangetown and Bluewater village are well started, and now Riverblossom Hills, Pleasantview and Veronaville are in their sights. {I just recently added the other Neighborhoods to Strangetown}.

News: The Sim most likely to be chosen as the head of the Anti-Alien Alliance General Buzz Grunt has been found to have two Alien Lovers that he impregnated when it was revealed recently that Chloe and her sister Lola are both Pregnant by General Buzz Grunt head of the Strangetown Military.

I will ask in Story Dilemma Advice if anyone has any suggestions for some sims that might be inclined to be the head of the Anti-Alien Alliance, heh I have something like 4 Alien Clans plus the products of the Abductions in my game and all of the Aliens work on making matches with mostly non-Aliens. Not every Sim household has an Alien, but a lot of them do. LOL

@AliaD85 - your school is very nice! I like the look of it and how the meeting was laid out with the Christmas Tree in the background. I also liked the narrative story style you told that went with it
How did you get a text character for the simoleon??

Uh oh! My social bar is low - that's why I posted today.

(Alia: My apologies for the late posting. Between work, the holiday season, and a recent death in the family... yeah... But here is the final part of the Sedona town hall! Then, it's time to jump into life in the town. It only gets more interesting from here. Btw, @Charmful Would you believe I googled simoleon and just copied and pasted?
For everyone who doesn't know, Sunni of Medieval Sims is currently very ill and in ICU. She's gifted us for many years with amazing projects and even more with her incredible mind and personality. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.

Sedona Town Hall (After the Meeting):

After many of the excited Sedona residents excited the meeting room, Ethan greeted and thanked Mrs. Suarez for her help. "There's no way we would have been able to get this off this ground without you!"

Remedios smiled. "Dear heart, I was more than happy to do it. Having these children in Sedona has been a blessing! They've brought life to the town! And with more little ones on the way, they need a school closer to home."

Ethan blinked. He glanced out of the meeting room door at a the ladies in the main hall before looking at a knowing and very amused Remedios. She pat his shoulder sweetly before walking off to speak to the old man that owned the local restaurant.

"Right..." Shaking his head, Ethan looked around for one woman in particular. He'd seen her shaking hands with everyone, including being waylaid by a very excited Hanuel. Now, Lexie was missing. Conflicted with himself, Ethan hesitantly entered the hallway, smiling and walking quickly in order not to be caught in a conversation. A quick glance over Dr. Beaker's shoulder revealed Lexie slowly putting away her presentation board and cleaning up her bag in the library.

Slipping past Beaker, Erik and Kirk, Ethan opened the door, closing it quickly behind him. Lexie looked up surprised to see him. "Oh! Ethan? Um... Do you have any questions about the build?"

Opening his mouth, Ethan suddenly felt like an idiot. He couldn't understand why he'd chased his wife especially after everything that happened. The last time he'd seen Lexie, she was standing of the door of the their condo begging him to stay. Not that it was going to happen at the time. He had been contemplating the dead end of his life when he'd come home to see his wife making out with some stranger on the couch. That had been the straw that broke the camel's back. That same night, he packed his bag, quit his job on the way out of town, and sold his car after arriving in Sedona to live his crazy idea of starting a vineyard.

Ethan had no regrets about it. He hated how his life was in SimCity. His job was horrible, his friends were horrible, his family was horrible, and, in all honesty, he'd been horrible too. Which was probably why he was in the one room library of a hamlet's renovated town hall trying to speak to his estranged wife.

Lexie had been the only good thing in SimCity. She was warm, kind, and supportive. Lexie was always willing to give her time, money, and attention to Ethan when he was buried in his work. She was the type of sim that gave freely. But that doesn't work in a marriage. It's give and take, not just give.

Ethan was standing in front of his wife because the failure of their marriage was half his fault. She may have cheated, but Ethan had been mentally absent from their marriage for years. "N-no. No, I don't have any questions. I... just wanted to thank you, Lexie, for today. We really appreciate it." He mentally yelled at himself for not saying what he meant. No wonder their marriage ended up the way it had. He was never able to communicate!

Lexie's face fell even as she mustered up a smile. "Thank you. I'm happy to help." She looked out the door to see the two men in glasses holding hands. The fondness of the older man was painful to see. Still offering a professional smile, Lexie stepped forward and shook Ethan's hand. "If you need anything or have any questions, please feel free to contact D & D Dreamer."

Shaking his wife's hand, Ethan felt his stomach drop. He knew the next time he saw Lexie, she would be asking for a divorce. Still, it was better this way. "Stay with me."

Lexie stared at her equally stunned husband. "What? D-did you just..."

Ethan had not meant to say that. He'd meant to say thank you and goodbye. But thankfully, someone was looking out for him. "Stay here in Sedona with me. I did it, Lexie. I actually have the vineyard going. It's going to be a bit of time before it's a winery, but it's possible to really start a business."

"Ethan," Lexie started to pull way. "This isn't a good idea. You can't just ask me that. After everything that happened? I'm happy for you, but..." She glanced out the door, hoping no one would see them. "Ethan, I-I'm not a good wife for you and,"

"And I wasn't a good husband. I love you, Lexie. I shouldn't have left when I did or the way that I did. I should have talked to you. I should have talked to you for years. I ignored you when it was your birthday and anniversary. I missed or left dates you spent so much time planning because of a job I hated. I even dismissed you when your last family member died and you needed someone to be there. I wasn't."

"Then why are you-," Lexie shook her head. She loved Ethan, but everything he said was true. It was the very reason she'd sought affection elsewhere. She'd reached a point of desperation.

"Because, I'll never forgive myself if I let you leave." He took her other hand. "Stay with me, Lexie. J-just to talk. Okay? I love you. No matter how stupid we were that hasn't changed."

Lexie looked up at her husband and was caught by his eyes. Ethan was a horrible liar for someone who was a mayor now. "We're just going to talk, okay?"

Ethan grinned as he gently held and swung his wife's gentle hands. Since his arrival to Sedona, his life was wonderful. If he could convince Lexie to try again, things would be even better.

Multiple screams just outside the library had Ethan turning and rushing from the room, his concerned wife right behind him. Ethan stood in the hall with Lexie as they watched Ronald Manning knell down beside old crazy Anna Chalmers, who was crumbled next to the entrance. Glancing over his shoulder, Ethan saw Dr. Beaker with his hands full of a catatonic Kirk Barrett.

Lexie walked over, worried, as the large man sighed and shook his head before standing. "Is she?"

"Dead as a damn door nail." He continued speaking as Ethan and Albert Baltimore joined them. "She walked in with her face white as snow. She tried to speak before collapsing. She looked terrified." Ronald walked toward to the doors to lock them temporarily.

Albert looked at Ethan. "You don't think this is that nonsense curse the old folks tell us do you?"

"Considering the look on Kirk's face? His mother died just like this right?" asked Ethan. Albert nodded.

Sighing, Ethan smiled at his worried wife before turning to address the frightened locals and frantic parents. He missed the dark stare Dr. Beaker gave the empty space over the recently deceased resident.

Oliver S. Beaker continued to coax Kirk back into reality even as he stared at the hooded figure no one else could see. Apparently, things weren't over just yet.

You can't lie to me. I play Town Of Salem.

@AliaD85 I am very sorry about the recent real life problems, I do hope that Sunni gets better, I don't really do much with Medieval Sims, but I know the site.

On to the Sims, I do hope that Ethan and Lexie try to make another go at it.

As always I really love your Story Line and your narrative style. I sort of wish I could do something like it, but I know it is not my style even though I really do admire it.

Good Pictures.

Oooh, this is exciting! I can't wait to hear about the curse. And I do hope Lexie will give Ethan another chance.

I'll be giving Sunni my best thoughts. I don't play a medieval game, but a lot of her creations were good for rural life, too, and I like playing that. I'm sorry you've had a rough time lately, too.
