Chapter 9.2 – A BIG Surprise!

31 12 2009

Both Audrey and Bridget were the happiest they had ever been.  They both had gorgeous boyfriends who doted on them.  Andy and Alex had practically moved in with the Shenston family as they spent almost every waking moment there. 

The boys loved spending time at the house as not only were their girlfriends there, but compared to their small apartment the house was huge and they loved taking advantage of the swimming pool and everything else the house and family had to offer them.

It was not long though until Audrey got itchy feet and the need to travel and explore again.  This time she chose China to visit.  She invited Alex to come along with her, but he could not afford to leave his band as they had secured some gigs that he could not miss.  So Audrey travelled alone and promised Alex she would come back to him soon.  They stayed up all night the night before she was due to leave larking around on the swings and making love.

When Audrey arrived in Shang Simla she went directly to Chong’s grave.  As Chong had killed her father she wanted to see what had happened to the man her brother hated so much.  When she got there his urn had just been left next to a withering tree, surrounded by weeds and totally neglected.  Audrey started to cry.  She cried for the loss of her father and for how things had turned out.  Audrey did not know much about Chong, only that him and her mother had once been madly in love until he became a control freak.  When Audrey had left for China her mother had warned her about Chinese men and how irresistable they were.

Audrey spent the next few months exploring tombs and collecting valuable relics.  She absolutely thrived on the adventure and could not believe it when she realised she had been in China for nearly a year!  Before she returned home she promised herself one more adventure.  Her task was to speak to local villagers and convince them to donate an ancient relic to the museum.  This was when she met Ning Su Lung. 

Audrey suddenly knew what her mother was talking about, Ning was so handsome and such a flirt.  It did not take long for her to convince Ning to agree to donate the relic and afterwards she forgot all about her challenge and hung around the village square chatting to him for the rest of the evening.  She was going home the next day and figured it would not hurt to engage in a bit of harmless flirting.

But before she knew it she was back at her hotel and in bed with him.  She had never planned to cheat on Alex, but Ning was so irresistable and at that moment nothing else mattered to Audrey.

When Audrey woke up the next morning Ning was gone and in the cold light of day Audrey instantly regretted what she had done.  She packed her luggage and headed home.  When she arrived back later the following evening Alex was waiting for her on her doorstep.

His eyes were glittering and Audrey suddenly realised how much she had missed him.  Alex pulled her into a big bear hug and squeezed her as tight as he could.  “I missed you so much baby,” he whispered into her ear.

Audrey was overcome with guilt.  How could she cheat on Alex when he had waited for her all this time?  She knew she had to tell him what she had done and tried to choose her words carefully explaining that it had only happened once and it was Alex she wanted and what a big mistake she had made.

Tears pricked Alex’s eyes and before he knew it, rage he never knew he could produce poured out of him.  “How could you Audrey?  I waited for you for a whole year and this is how you repay me!  You have broken my heart.”

Audrey burst into tears saying over and over again “sorry, sorry sorry.” 

“Sorry does not mean anything from you,” Alex continued.  “How could i ever trust you again after this.  What we had is dead, you have killed it.  It is over between us.”

This time it was Audrey’s turn to stand on the porch and watch Alex.  But he was running away from her rather than coming towards her. 

Audrey did not know what she was going to do.  She felt lost and heartbroken all at once and it was all her own fault.  She cried to her mother who was a great comfort but what could Eva say?  They both knew that Audrey had bought this on herself.

Meanwhile, things were going great for Bridget.  While Audrey had been away, Andy had proposed to her.

Not wanting much of a fuss, Bridget wanted to have a private ceremony, but Eva insisted that Bridget should at least have her family present.  The wedding took place a few weeks after Audrey had come home.  All that was present was Bridget, Andy, Audrey, Eva and Alex, Andy’s brother.  It broke Audrey’s heart all over again to see him and she could not help crying quietly to herself when he arrived.

Audrey watched her sister exchange rings with the man she loved and wished it was her marrying Alex.  But Alex would not even look at her and Audrey knew he would never be able to forgive her. 

Following the wedding, Audrey was so devastated by the realisation she would never get Alex back, that she turned to food for comfort.  She ate and ate and ate only finding pleasure in the fattest foods she could find.  Her weights started to soar and soon she had to buy new clothes because her old clothes would not fit her anymore!

Audrey had also become very moody and grumpy.  She walked around the house with a face like thunder snapping at everyone, especially her sister.

Bridget was getting fed up of her sisters moods and would tease her about them and remind Audrey what a miserable person she was turning into.

Audrey was miserable.  She seemed to be miserable about everything especially her weight.  She would constantly moan to her mother about fat she was getting.  Eva tried to reassure her daughter and tried to gently to encourage her to stop eating so much, but Audrey just bite her head off.

To make her feel better about her weight, Audrey ate more.  She would always be found with her stuck in the fridge rummaging around for something to satisfy her depression.

Or wondering around the house with a fatty milkshake or snack in hand.

As the months went by and the eating continued, the bigger Audrey got.  It was getting so bad that Bridget and Eva gossiped about Audrey behind her back, laughing at her size.  They had given up long ago trying to help as they just got their heads bitten off.

One day, nine months after Audrey and Alex had broken up, Audrey woke up from an afternoon nap with severe pains in her tummy.  She called out for her sister and mother but Eva was at work and Bridget was at a book festival with Andy.  Audrey thought she must just need the toilet so went into the bathroom and tried to deal with her pains. But the pain was so extreme, nothing Audrey had ever felt before.  It completely crippled her and even though she kept calling out for help she could not even make it to the phone to call for an ambulance. 

Eventually Eva came home.  On entering the house she could hear the most animalistic screams she had ever heard. She ran up the stairs into the bathroom to find Audrey near the toilet screaming in pain.  Beneath her lay a pool of what looked like water and Eva recognised at once that her daughter was in labor.

There was no time to call an ambulance.  By the time Eva got there the head was on its way out and Eva had to help her daughter to deliver the baby.  Audrey felt like she was being ripped in two but pushed like her mother told her.

Giving birth was almost a blur of pain and shock to Audrey.  She could not believe she was having a baby, she had had no idea she was even pregnant.  Eva helped her cut the cord and told Audrey, while hand her the bundle, “congratulations darling.  It’s a girl.”

Audrey looked into the babies eyes and had never felt so much pure love before.  She could recognise her own pale brown eyes, but the little girl also had jet black hair and Audrey finally realised that this was the result of her one night of passion with Ning.  To Audrey her daughter was perfect.  Even though she was half Chinese, Audrey did not want to give her a Chinese name so she named her Asia so her daughter would always be reminded of where she came from.

Anthem

awwww. Interestingly enough, Asia is a quarter English, a quarter French, and half Chinese. Can’t wait to see how that will affect her looks.

Hopefully, Chinese men will be portrayed more positively this time around.

OMG, I just realized! The Shenston Legacy is officially over~! Congrats Sarah, but please continue!

Your right Anthem… hopefully the mixture of nationalities will make for a nice mix. Sorry if Chong gave Chinese men the wrong image. Hopefully we will get to see the right side of them too.

I cant believe i have a 10th generation, but dont worry, things dont end here!!!!! xxx

Great chapter! I’m not too happy for Audrey to gave up everything she had with Alex and make the same mistake that her mother had made. At least that guy is quite handsome though… Asia is a cutie but I hope that Ning won’t find out about her. I really wouldn’t want her to end up being hurt by him just like her mother by Chong!

Hi chichi56788. You comment about the teeth made me lol. No i do not do anything to their teeth. I guess my graphics card makes it look this way, i dont know. But i am glad that my sims look after their own teeth well 🙂

Yup I’m lucky!!! It is so hard to type though!!!

Hopfully it won’t show ingame
I love this you know you could switch to male heirs after 10 gens if you want to continue this family

I think there is a lack of information about birds and bees in the Shenston family. 😉

Anyhow, Asia is lovely, and I agree with Anthem, that hopefully we will se other sides of the chinese men in future. To bad that she had to hurt Alex on the way though. 😦

I want a red-haired baby, but maybe Bridget could have one with Andy. 🙂
And Asia is absolutely gorgeous. I can’t wait to see her grown up.

I agree with Liz, it would be awesome to continue with male heirs. The male Shenston drama hasn’t really been portrayed yet.

Just a queston, I heard that the Shenstons are British, is that true?

1 01 2010
sims3rocks

Darn, i forgot to put this in my other comment, but, why do you age the babies up into toddlers right then, I know i do that because babies are boring, but does it go with the storyline or something?

1 01 2010
StarSarah - TheShenstonLegacy

Hi Sims3rocks. I am British so i guess the Shenston’s are too….

In reply to your quesiton about the babies, i do not document them when they are babies because as you say, they are so boring. So i guess in the story the babies age into toddlers after a couple of hours after birth, if that makes sense? x

yeah I find the babies boring!

Eva’s hair is Princess Leia’s hair. That’s what Peggy modeled it after.

I’ve been reading your legacy since the beginning! I can’t believe Gen.10 has been born.

I had one question, where did you get Audrey’s hair from? I thought I must have missed it somehow on Peggy’s, but I searched through the pages and didn’t see it.

13 01 2010
zenna96

Audrey’s hair is from Savio’s blog:

Thanks so much zenna!
I actually used my brain, and looked through the sites Sara had previously linked others too and found it. But I still appreciate it! Any idea where the pigtails are from?
