2.32: Not Like This

I don’t even know where to start.

These past several weeks have been…

God, I don’t think I can find the right word for it. I couldn’t even bring myself to write about it until now, to be honest.

Things were bad enough before. But nothing could have prepared us for this.

Mari’s pregnant.

2

We found out over a month ago.

And she wasn’t even planning on telling us either – We would have had no idea if Gabriela hadn’t found the test in the trash.

It still makes me feel sick just writing about it. I’ve always kinda dreamed of being a grandfather, you know?

But just… not like this.

Jade and I did our best to calm her down. Told her she needed to call Humberto right away, and figure out what they were going to do. But that’s when she told us – She doesn’t even know for sure if it’s his.

We should have known this would happen. We’d both been turning a blind eye for so long… And we thought things were getting better. Hell, Jade even seemed convinced that Humberto would be the one to finally snap her out of this… And so was I, for a while.

But I guess he wasn’t.

I still don’t know for sure what we could have done differently… I can’t tell you how many times we’ve both tried talking some sense into Mari – even Jade started to come around, after a while. But we just couldn’t get through to her… Maybe we gave up too easily or something.

8

Anyway, Jade and I both agree that no matter what happens, we can’t screw this up again. We have to keep trying. Because no matter what she does, or how she treats us… She’s still our little girl. We love her. And we have to help her through this, however we can.

And part of that is making sure she takes care of herself.

We had to practically drag Mari to the doctor with us today for her first ultrasound. She’s been avoiding that place like the plague. Making excuses, putting up a fight, canceling appointments behind our backs… But today we finally convinced her.

10

The doctor says everything looks good. We found out she’s nearly 12 weeks along already, and due right at the end of Spring.

And as for the baby, well…

The doctor was able to pick up the sound of a nice, strong heartbeat…

Two of them.

Author’s Note: TWINS!!!!!! It has been KILLING me to keep this a secret for the past few weeks! This was not planned at ALL. I was basically SCREAMING. But my goodness, in the end, it’s the best thing to ever have happened, and Gen 3 will be all the better because of it, you’ll see! So pumped. ❤

  1. Oh yyyyeeeeeaaah!! Love the unexpected twist and her face at the end is priceless. I am surprised she didn’t say the ‘F’ word lol. Also, super excited to see Jade and Alex support her (but I kinda knew they would).

    I was just thinking how awkward it would be to tell your parents your pregnant, in any scenario because it’s clearly telling them your doing the horizontal polka with someone. What parent in their right mind would want that visual?! But to tell them you are pregnant and have no idea whom the father is….eeeeeeps!

    1. It’s so exciting! 😀 Hehe and I will answer the first question… I just picked one, because I wasn’t sure how else to do it 😛 BUT, you won’t know for a long time who I picked, because both twins have a journal and are main characters in Gen 3! 🙂

      Thanks for sharing in the excitement! 😀

  2. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
    YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!
    Mari gets double the love,
    And we get double the trouble! (I anticipate your drama, Citizen! ;))
    I am genuinely bouncing off the walls! This is so exciting! 😀
    Okay, I’m calm now. Time for a normal, cheerful, summing-up comment that I say every update…
    Great update, and am looking forward to the next one! 🙂

  3. Eee, how exciting! ❤ I'm so curious how the story will play out with both twins writing journal entries. It's going to be so unique!

    I was happy to see Jade and Alex showing Mari support in this chapter 🙂 And I'm glad to hear that they've agreed they won't let something like this slip past them again. Yay!

    1. I’m excited too! And I already love writing the twins already ❤ (I've written four chapters of Gen 3 so far 🙂 ) I can't wait for everyone to "meet" them! ^_^ And yes, Alex and Jade are really trying here. It's not just about Mari anymore — it's about their future grandbabies! 🙂

  5. The moment when I got hooked on your legacy.
    Just kidding. I was hooked from the start. I’m a sucker for a good sims legacy, but it really was the gen 2/gen 3 arcs that made me fall so in love with it.
