Rose and Dawn
Sally and Mitch are parents again
As part of The Townie Project, Mitch
Lawson the fireman moved in temporarily with Sally Raptor, on his way to
Mitch moves in.
Mitch is the father of Sally's girls Eleanor
and Gina; but they've never lived together before.
Sally's always been very fond of Mitch, and she prepared a little
going-away present for him.
Bun in the oven.
Mitch is a Family Sim, but he didn't get to play much of
a role in raising his first two children. So the prospect of taking a baby
with him to raise at Casa Townie had great appeal.
It was an easy pregnancy, with lots of Domestic Bliss.
The Slacker Career Reward is sort of silly; I mean,
the flowers are pretty and all, but you can't smoke them!
Sally thought seriously about keeping Mitch around indefinitely; maybe
even marrying him.
Another art shot.
"He's so sweet.
We could bring up the babies together.
And there'd be someone waiting in bed when I
get home at two am.
Of course it'd always be the same person.
So maybe not."
Events took their inevitable course.
He was downstairs somewhere.
The father was not entirely sympathetic.
"Ooh, baby, hot childbirth!"
But Sally didn't need his help.
Welcome to the world, Rose!
"Rose Raptor" has an certain ring to it, eh?
Mitch and Sally joyously admired their new child.
But there was a complication...
Welcome to the world, Dawn!
I shouldn't have
said "I just hope it's not twins"...
Unnecessary funny picture of Mitch putting down Rose to admire Dawn:
"As a firefighter, I'm trained in home and
personal safety. For instance, never put an infant down at the head of a
staircase, like this."
Fortunately the laws of Sim physics
prevent any bad consequences.
Sally rented a couple of cribs and put them into Gina's old room
"Yeah, wow. Do you think you..."
"I'll be fine. We'll be fine."
"I could keep one here, um, for awhile if you -- I guess?"
"Thanks, Sally, but a deal's a deal.
They'll have six loving parents."
"You think the other five might be sort of surprised?"
"We'll be fine."
So Mitch went online and made final arrangements.
I thought if Sally spun up any baby-related
wants I'd have Mitch and the kids stay around until they went away.
But she didn't.
And they were off.
"You got two baby seats, right?"
Actually the babies just vanished from the lot
when Mitch made the call. Eleanor was holding one of them at the time
(in fact although it didn't fit into the narrative Eleanor was out in the
hot tub when Sally gave birth, and she got to
hold one of the twins
before they left), and
her arms did that scary "elongated and pointing off in some direction"
thing when they disappeared.
So here are Mitch and the twins at the Bus Stop, waiting for
the rest of the Project Townie crew to arrive.
He looks a bit overwhelmed.

Rose and Dawn
Not long after, back at the Love Nest, another of those
Mysterious Student Visitors showed up!
(Cue ominous music) This is the third college student
who's come up and rung the doorbell for no reason just after a major Raptor life event;
it's spooky! Maybe they're just selling magazine subscriptions or something,
Sally answered the door, and he immediately expressed a great
admiration for her.
Trent admires Sally.
Maybe he's been watching her through the
He and Sally seem to have interests in common.
Or so he'd like her to think!
Maybe he's some sort of android.
But even chatting with this attractive young man,
Sally's thoughts went to the little babies that had
been so briefly part of her life.
"Ah, little Rose, or possibly Dawn; I miss you already."
When will Sally see her babies again?
What will the other residents of Casa Townie think of sharing the
house with unexpected twins?
Will Mitch find love outside the Love Nest?
And will Sally buy any magazine subscriptions from Trent?
Tune in next time for even more questions!
