My Third Set - 5 Berry Berry Tops for Active Teens

 My third set for Teens - recolor of a maxis mesh. I love these flowers but they remind me of berries (for some weird reason) so I decided to name these tops 
"berry berry."

I realise the pictures look weird when I placed them side by side here :((
That is because when I was taking the pictures, it changed from daynight to nightime ...argggh, thus resulting in different lighting conditions. But I'll take better pictures next time. Too tired to do color adjustment in PS CS2 so yeah...these shall have to do this time round.

By the way, are you guys sick of looking at Ceras Keats yet? Maybe I need to change a model and use Fyn or Faye but somehow Ceras is always the prettiest ...so... lol. Any suggestions?

My Second Set (Satin Overskirts)

This is pretty challenging to make. I spent a long time on it. I gave it extra shine for the satin feel.
There is supposed to be ribbon at the back of the satin top but it didn't show clearly in the picture.
My favourite is the purple one and that is an unintentional effect created while I was fooling around with the colors lol.

News about me! (heeheee)

Recently I have been learning how to make clothes. Here's a preview of my first set soon to be published at TSR. I know I really 
ought to be sharing this only when the set is published so that I could post the link. But I am so excited to show you, my friend, the tops I made. 
It is a simple top but I am learning to make outfits now. Hope you will like these tops. They are not the best right now but I am improving as always and you'll see better things from me very soon.

By the way, Model is adult Ceras Keats. She is gorgeous, don't you think? Maybe it is me...but I really think my Keats simmies are so good looking.

They have excellent genes, thanks to Yuki Sohma and Narcisa Keats! Although she died young, but she sure left behind good genes via Ethel Keats with Yuki Sohma!

Ideas for Yuki-Ceras

Well...well...I am thinking of a tragic ending or a happy ending. 
What do you people think? I am open to ideas *wink-wink*
But it won't be up so soon. For one, Ceras is still a kid, ya know.

And I need to get Lane-Clyde-Havie out first as well as Jayde-Lexie...
And are you interested to see Johan back? For some reason, people doesn't seem interested in my twins. I never have read anything said much about those poor twins or mine.

Some Random Pictures

Well, these are 2 pictures which are not included in Ep 172 but which I thought you might want to see :)

The Clan celebrating Baby Lavender's Birthday

Celebrating Lavender's Birthday

A funny picture of Faye trying to teach Emerald mechanical skills. In the background, Endre kicks the punchbox not to relieve his agony (now that Faye is finally back) but to exercise. He rolls a want to get fit lol.

Episode 172: As a Family ...an unwelcome guest

As the oven hums, Lexie whistles a tune of her own as she wiped the table. It has been a busy day. Bathing little Lavender has not been an easy task and that has taken the better half of her day. And now with only a few hours before the party, Lexie has to work doubly hard to bake her first child’s birthday cake as well as make sure the house is clean and neat before the family arrive.

 

She knew that Jayde is against the idea of having a party. Being a quiet man (ever since that incident which cost a brother and a husband), he has resisted the idea of a lively party for Lavender’s birthday. But Lexie wants it and pushes for it.

 

Honey, we need to interact more with your family…you hardly talk to them anymore and your sister, Faye has just returned home…surely you want to see her?

 

Errr…

 

The truth is that she doesn’t care for Faye or a family gathering at all…she just wants to do things as a family. And seeing Jayde in the garden, mowing the lawn… seeing the sweat roll down his well toned body…Lexie feels a shudder of desire running through her…it has been so long since…they sleep on the same bed

611 Alone

612 Not on the same bed

… never mind…the time will come…Lexie smiles almost sadly as she put away her tablecloth and prepares to take the cake out of the stove.

 

Aaron would be back from school anytime soon. She would set the boy to cleaning the bathrooms 

612


and that would be the last of the tasks before the guests start to arrive.

 

***

‘Jayde dear and Lexie look this way please….’ Faye shouts as she adjusts the camera’s lens.

613 looks this way!


Jayde looks into the camera and tries to smile naturally. Today has been uncomfortable for him. He isn’t used to his entire clan clamming his small home and to top it off, he has a strange feeling since yesterday and it is not a good feeling as if something unpleasant will happen. But what could happen? Life has been good. Lavender is a healthy kid and Lexie has been pleasant to him. Aaron is doing marvelously in high school and seems to be interested in girls who are even butt ugly. 

614 bad taste


While Jayde may question his son’s taste in girls, he is immensely relieved that he isn’t gay.   

 

Nyah…he is probably fretting about nothing. But… so… what could possibly go wrong?

 

As if in response to Jayde’s question, the doorbell chimes.  Havel Keats is first to reach the door.

 

‘Who’s there?’ Havie says as he opens the door. The door swings outwards to reveal a face that tries to smile and yet fails as the face distorts to plummet a loud and harsh cough.

 

Despite the decades which passes them by and changes their features and hearts for the worse, Havel recognizes the man…oh why…he could even recognize his ashes if necessary. The bane of his life. Lane Keats. 

615 bane of his life

 

***

The two men sat opposite each other, a small coffee table between them. 

 

The air is still and their faces are grim.

 

‘She’s dead…and you didn’t even bother to tell me.’

 

‘It isn’t necessary. She is dead. And you can’t do anything for the dead.’

 

Lane clutches his fist.

 

‘I could say goodbye.’

 

‘It isn’t necessary.’

 

‘What the -! Who are you to judge whether it is necessary!’ Lane shoots up, toppling his chair and alarming the other customers in the small cosy café.

 

‘Sit down. You are causing a scene.’ Havel says without looking up at Lane who is trembling uncontrollably with a mixture of sorrow and anger. He is trying his best to be nonchalant about this. No, he won’t fumble at this. He won’t let the cat out of the bag. This man doesn’t know he has a child and he won’t know …not while he is alive anyway.

 

Meanwhile, Ceras still red faced from her kiss with Yuki drives home to college, delirious with joy. The kiss was a short one and yet it captures her heart immediately.

616 kiss of a life time

616 in love... 

 

Yuki…Yuki…Yuki…Yukiiii…

 

Her excited mind plays that beautiful moment over and over in her mind as she drives. Clyde watches his sister with curiosity as he watches her giggle repeatedly while she drives. But he decides that he doesn’t need to know what’s on her mind, at least not now. The last time he tried, she has slammed the door right in his face and cried straight for an hour after that. Clyde shudders to think of what happens if something similar happens on the road.

 

‘Nite, Clyde! Nite, Ethan!’

 

‘Nite, Ceras!’

 

Ceras closes the door and is immediately startled by a bear hug from behind.

‘Cutie-pie! I have been waiting for you….’ A husky male voice coos as Ceras feels his eager hands trying to fumble her buttons open.

 

Ceras groans, turns around and faces the Spanish hunk that she has slightly loves before today.

 

‘Not today, Fabian. I am exhausted.’

 

‘Come on…Ceras…I need you.’

 

‘Get out, Fabian.’  Ceras said, raising her voice a little as Fabian slides his hand into her top.

 

Fabian pauses uncertainly for a moment before letting go and heaving a sigh of discontentment, let himself out of her room.

 

Ceras sits down on her bed and buttons her top. Her life has changed forever.

 

And Fabian is history…well at least till after her Spanish proficiency examination. Till then he is still needed. I am sorry, Fabian. You are hot but I have someone even hotter in my mind. And a thousand yous will not replace a single one of him.

 

When will I see him again?

 

***

 

As the running water cascades down his back, Clyde thinks over the strange occurrences of the evening.  It has been strange, all right. Dad has turned pale upon seeing that coughing stranger and has immediately closed the door after him, saying he would be back soon. But he never returned again that evening even after the birthday party has ended and toddler Lavender has long since gone to sleep. Strange indeed. All his years, Dad has always been a composed gentleman and yet today, someone managed to fluster him. Something must be going on! Clyde nods grimly as he soaps his arms.

 

And what is up with Ceras and Yuki?

617 what are they doing

They were together in the bathroom for a while.  He knows that they haven’t seen him otherwise they might not have done what they did. Clyde wonders if his sister is up to some hanky-panky with their great grandfather but the very idea itself sounds terribly incredulous.
 
618 what goes on behind closed doors

But he remembers her besotted expression

619 Ceras besotted expression

and doubt seeps in.

 

Damn, his sister’s business is not his.

 

As Clyde turns off the shower and reaches for his towel, he is reminded of that tall Spanish guy…he sees occasionally around their house and in his sister’s room. What’s his name again? Ahhh… Fabian….He smiles a soft relieved smile …there is probably nothing queer going on between Yuki and Ceras. Maybe Ceras just need to ask their great grandfather something in private. 

Ahhhh…yes , that must be it.

 

***

‘ I am dying, Havel. Are you sure you have nothing more to tell me?’

 

Havel sags back in his chair, tries his hardest to steady his breathing before saying no.

 

Lane sighs and stands up. So he is still lying, isn’t it?

 

‘Fine.’

 

If he won’t tell him, he would find out by himself. No doubt about it. He has a child with her and now it is just to find out which of the young adults in that house tonight is his.

Episode 171: Lavender Keats

She lies on the hospital bed, clutching her thin hospital blanket and waits in anticipation for her newborn to be brought to her.

 

It isn’t long before the door to her private ward opens and her husband enters, smiling broadly holding their lovely newborn in his arms. He brings the baby close to her face and she sees with satisfaction that the baby has her red hair and her husband’s bluish grey eyes. She strokes her baby’s soft hair and looks up at her husband who mouths ‘ Lavender Keats?’ She nods in agreement at the name, ‘Lavender…’ and promptly falls asleep with a small smile on her exhausted face.

 

Jayde Keats looks down at his sleeping wife for a moment. And he looks at their baby. He bends down, kisses Lexie on the forehead, ‘thank you …’ before walking out of the ward towards the nursery.

 

As the door closes, a tear trickles down Lexie’s face as she brings her hand to her forehead and touches it thoughtfully. That was the first time he has ever kissed her on his own accord since their wedding day.

 

Perhaps…just perhaps…Lavender will bring them together…as a family. Lexie beams as she once again drifts into unconsciousness.

Reluctance and Remorse

‘Is it really necessary for me to be gone so soon?’ Ceras Keats pouts as she stares at Yuki and Havel with her soulful puppy eyes.

 

Knowing Ceras’ tricks well enough, Havel leaves it entirely to Yuki to be firm. He could never do it. He is too soft-hearted with Ceras and he knows it. He walks away.
