Eleanor the Tycoon
Endings and Beginnings
Meanwhile, over at the Raptors, Eleanor has gone into the
Finally, off to work.
Both because it didn't seem fair
for her to sponge off her Mom forever, and because it'd make it
easier for Sally to have very good friends over without risking
tantrums from her daughter.
She did startlingly well at her career (we suspect her of
romancing her way up the ladder, but we can't prove it).
We're in the money.
I'm not sure which memory-record this
is; maybe the five-thousand simolean one?
She also developed an interest in local shorts-wearer
The memory of a kiss.
Long-time Eleanor fans will remember
that the picture of her in the background there was painted by
Kaylynn, a few lovers ago.
Brandi had been enjoying being
Eleanor's live-in squeeze,
but practical Knowledge Sim that she was, she felt that that time was
A good-bye kiss.
Right next to the ol' pinball machine.
She called up some old minions on the phone (she'd long since given
up her criminal career for medicine, but she'd kept her Rolodex),
made some arrangements, and she was off.
Eleanor's seen quite a few good-byes.
Brandi is off, of course, to start the
saga of Rooms To Let.
Eleanor continued courting Kennedy.
Quite a crowd!
Sally's taking Goopy Gilscarbo upstairs
for some friendly recreation, and Eleanor's courting Kennedy.
It took me quite awhile to figure out why Jane Danvers was crying
in the background;
I eventually realized that since her father John once had an affair
with Eleanor, Jane considers Eleanor to be cheating on John here.
Which is Very Silly! After all, if she'd seen Eleanor kissing John,
she would have cried because John was cheating on Jean (her mom).
Eventually she asked him to move in, and he instantly accepted.
The traditional moving-in hug.
Turns out that he's a high-roller in the business world also!
Soon they were both off to work in that darn noisy helicopter.
Although Kennedy's Lifetime Want is to be
Chief of Staff at the hospital, so what he was doing running
major corporations and leveraged buyouts and stuff, I dunno.
As always, business had its ups and downs.
A very bad day at the office.
Eleanor was demoted
due to my guessing wrong on a Chance card.
Although Georgia (who came home with Eleanor that day) seems to be
taking great pleasure in it, the two are in fact great friends,
as casually mentioned elsewhere.
The demotion wasn't really serious; Eleanor was back to Tycoon
in a day or two.
Promotions came quickly for both Kennedy and Eleanor.
One day at lunch, they got into a serious discussion about
careers and lives and so on.
"Are we going to live with your mom forever?"
Mmmm, grilled cheese!
Eleanor surprised herself by agreeing to move out with
Kissing Mom good-bye
Sally is, of course, in her underwear.
Leaving the only home she's ever known.
Headed for the taxi.
Odd not to be the one left standing on the
So Eleanor and Kennedy are off to greener pastures.
The greener pastures of the Bus Stop
at the moment.
I'm sure I'll get around to building
them a house eventually;
in the meantime at least people can call
them up and invite them to parties.
And back at the Love Nest...
But that's another story. *8)
