6.5: Interlude – No Matter What

“You really don’t mind if we paint the walls?” Zayne asked his grandfather as he took a seat on the edge of the bed.

It felt so strange to be back in his great-grandparents’ bedroom. They’d both been gone for years now, but the room still remained practically untouched and unchanged. Zayne supposed it made sense though. What else would they do with the old room?

Nothing… Until now, that is.

Tobi smiled as he lowered himself onto the bed beside his grandson. “You can do whatever you like, Zayne. It’s yours now. And I think that’s what my Mama would have wanted.”

“You do?”

His grandfather nodded. “She’d be so happy you’re coming back home. And so am I.”

“Thanks, Opa.” Zayne smiled. “Hope and I have been wanting to move into a bigger place anyway. I guess it finally felt like the right time. And I figured maybe you could use some help with Oma now too…” He added uncertainly.

“Thank you.” Tobi replied. “But I think we both know the real reason you’re moving back into this old house… You’re doing the right thing for your Tante.” He smiled warmly at Zayne as he spoke.

Zayne felt a slight twisting sensation in his stomach at his grandfather’s words. “What do you mean, ‘real reason’?” He asked.

“Oh, come on, Zayne.” Tobi almost laughed. “We both know your Oma only has a few years left, at best. I’m not that delusional, you know.” He paused, shaking his head. “And once my Lettie’s gone… Well, I’m not planning on sticking around too much longer after that. I already lost my Bruder last year…” His voice was thick for a moment. Tobi cleared his throat before continuing. “And with Stefan and Lettie both gone… It’ll be my time to go too.”

Zayne shook his head slowly. “Opa, don’t talk like that.” He knew that everything his grandfather said was true, of course. But how could he sit there and talk about it so calmly?

“I’m just being honest.” Tobi shrugged as he spoke. “And I’m so proud of you for being here for your Tante. With the girls so far away now, you’re all she has left… Promise me you’ll take care of her.”

Zayne smiled gently at him. “Of course.”

“And… promise me one more thing?” He asked softly.

“Sure. Anything” Zayne replied. “But Opa, where is all this coming from?” It was so rare to see his grandfather so serious about things. What could have brought this on?

“I’ve just been doing a lot of thinking lately. With your Oma in the hospital again and my doctors upping my heart medication…” Tobi sighed. “I’m not trying to be a downer or anything. I just…” He paused for a moment. “These are the kinds of things I wanna make sure I get to say to you. Before it’s too late.”

“It’s okay, Opa. I get it.” Zayne assured him.

“I just want you to promise you’ll take care of your little girl too. Be the best father you can be, okay? Don’t make the same mistakes I did.”

His grandson’s brow furrowed slightly. Tobi had given him plenty of pep-talks about taking care of Harper before… But not quite like this. “Mistakes?”

“I let down my own kids so many times when they were younger. Especially your Onkel and your Tante.” Tobi said seriously. Zayne could see the slight sparkle of tears in his eyes. “I’ve apologized to them so many times. I’ve tried my best to make amends over the years… But nothing can ever undo the damage I caused…”

Zayne didn’t know what to say. He’d never heard his grandfather talk like this before. “Opa…”

“Just… promise me you’ll be there for Harper, Zayne. Don’t judge her. Don’t turn your back on her. Support her no matter what. Never let her forget how much you love her.”

Before he had a chance to reply, a soft voice called out to them. “Zayne? Papa?” Jocelyne stood uncertainly in the doorway, carrying Harper in her arms.

I wonder how much she heard… Zayne glanced briefly at his grandfather, who appeared to be wondering the same thing.

“Hey, Tante Joce.” He said at last.

“Sorry if I’m interrupting… But I think it’s almost time to take Harper to her appointment?”

“Oh, shit! I almost forgot. Thanks, Tante Joce.” He rose to his feet and crossed the room, gently taking his daughter from his aunt’s arms. “Ready for a ride in the car, baby girl?”

“Vroom!” Harper cried in reply.

Zayne glanced over his shoulder as Jocelyne headed toward the bed to join her father.

“Papa, come here.”

He let the bedroom door close behind him.

As he headed out to the car with Harper, Zayne found himself replaying his conversation with his grandfather over again in his mind.

The conversation had felt a bit unexpected at the time, but looking back, it made sense — Tobi had been noticeably more emotional and sentimental than usual, ever since the latest scare with Colette. The news that Zayne and his family would be moving in seemed to be one of the only things keeping him going lately.

Zayne was happy to share that heart-to-heart with his grandfather, and he was certainly grateful for Tobi’s words of advice… But wasn’t he already doing exactly what his grandfather had told him to do? Loving his little girl, and supporting her no matter what?

He and his wife had already had to support their little girl through so much more than any child should have to go through at her age. So much illness, so many visits to the doctor…

Today, it was a follow-up visit with the audiologist. Hope had taken Harper to get her hearing tested and her ears examined about a week ago. Even though she no longer seemed to have the symptoms of her infection, the little girl was still showing difficulty hearing and understanding. Could it be another infection coming on so soon? Would she need tubes put in after all? The doctor had requested a follow-up appointment, and Zayne hoped today he’d get some answers.

As he sat in the small examination room to wait for the doctor, Zayne found himself once again thinking about what his grandfather had said. Who knew what struggles still lay ahead for his little girl? What kind of challenges would Harper face?

Whatever they were, he and Hope would always support her, just like his Opa had said. He’d never turn his back on his own child, no matter what.

“Papa loves you.” He told Harper as she played with her favorite toy on the cold hardwood floor. “You know that, right? And I’m always gonna be here for you no matter what happens.” Zayne promised her softly.

As he expected, she did not respond. It was probably too difficult for her to hear him over the wheels of the car on the floor, or her own soft laughter.

“I said I love you, Harper.” He repeated, louder this time. He did his best to hide the bit of frustration he felt at her inability to hear him.

This time, his daughter looked up at him, putting down her toy at last. “What, Papa?”

“I was just telling you that I love you, honey.”

“I wuv you too, Papa!” She replied happily as the door finally swung open.

The look on Dr. Whidden’s face immediately sent a feeling of dread coursing through Zayne’s veins. “I’m sorry for the wait, Mr. Rosebrook.” He said seriously as he took a seat behind his desk.

“It’s fine.” Zayne struggled to keep his voice calm and steady as he replied. Oh God, what is it?

“Mrs. Rosebrook isn’t with you today?”

He shook his head. “She had to work.”

The older man nodded. “Normally I’d prefer sharing this information with both parents at the same time… But I don’t want to keep you waiting any longer.” Dr. Whidden explained. “I’ve analyzed the results from Harper’s scans, and…”

He went into a small speech then, using confusing medical terms like “chronic otitis media” and “ossicular chain dislocation”.

Most of the specifics went over Zayne’s head, but in the end, the doctor’s meaning was all too clear.

Harper’s ear infections had been worse than anyone had anticipated. The pressure from her infections had severely damaged and dislocated the bones in her middle ear. On both sides.

Surgery was still an option, but due to the extent of the damage, it was unlikely she’d ever be able to regain her full hearing.

Her hearing loss would be permanent.

——————————————————————-

I realize how abrupt it is but… This closes out the end of this legacy’s first toddler-arc! (Shoutout to the folks who’d predicted deafness in Harper’s future. Not completely deaf, but you all were close… unfortunately. Poor dear 😦 )

Also, three out of my seven sims available have been adopted… But that means four are still up for grabs. See who over at the Adoption Page 🙂

See you Saturday with our debut of child-Harper! And start being on the lookout for some of your casting call sims! ^_^

    Anti Shipper: Yay we’re right Dark it looks like we will get are red headed Beethoven after all now all Harper has to do is get in front of a piano!

    Dark WitcHazard: Yes then she can create beautiful ballads for the world to hear while she can barely hear it herself. Everyone will tell her it’s beautiful but she’ll always doubt it because she can’t hear it as clearly! Then she’ll slave away pooring her heart and soul into music!

    Lover WitcHazard: Yes and then one day at a music concert possibly charity and then she hears the sound of someone playing the violin it may not be audibly clear but she feels the powerful emotions it stirs inside her then she performs and the younger me man who left the stage before her is waiting and signs you’re beautiful she blushes then he corrects himself and signs your music is beautiful! Even though she’s heard it before for some reason it seems different hearing it from him!

    Anti Shipper: Then cue the rival!

    Dark WitcHazard: Yes he’s supposed to be this great musical prodigy but ever keep comparing him to the great Harper Rosebrook so he meets her realizes her hearing deficit then try’s to insult her in sign language but ends up paying her a compliment so the two start ganging out as he tries to figure out what makes her the so called better pianist.

    Lover WitcHazard: But over time he starts to feel for her and the two right a duet together which she ends up performing with the violinist. Then it’s a debut of her news masterpiece and the violinist gives her a heartfelt motivational speech in her dressing room then right before she gets on stage her rival whispers in her ear go show everyone whose the greatest pianist in the world! With the major confidence boost she plays her new song inspired by her feelings for both men then after the performance they both get be her a bouquet and sign will you go out with me? Decision time!

    Anti Shipper: Yes then she’ll be saved by Papa Zayne!

    Nooboos WitcHazard: I don’t mind this prediction that much! But I’m getting bored with the music bit try something else!😒

    Since Hope and Zayne figured out their personal problems, it has been a long list of deaths and tragedies. It should be about time we get some happy news! I feel so sad hearing about the death and upcoming death of so many Rosebrooks I liked. They all fucked up at some point, but Tobi realised long ago he made a mistake, and I am glad he tries to share this with Zayne, but with this little general advice, how could Zayne know for what mistake he should be looking out? When he feels to have to decide between Harpers wellbeing and her wishes? Tobi had to decide between Joce and Lucas, when he stood against Joce that one time too much, he thought he had to decide between what he thinks would make both kids happier in the long term (Joce too, as he thought she would be happier with a guy her age), what Joce wanted and what Luc wanted. Tobi took care of his kids, changed his life for them, but he was so young and piled up mistakes. He propably has thought that too, that it is only natural for him to encourage and support his children, and only much later realised he let them down many times before the big clash. Zayne can promise all he wants, but I won’t believe he will not make the same mistakes for a long time. But Zayne at least has a lot of experience and solved problems, so he has better chances than the young Tobi, who was almost a kid.

    I am so sorry for Harper to go almost or completely deaf. I hope her life will not be harder then necessary (but then again this is a drama for a reason…). I just hope the best for her. To find friends, to be able to archieve her goals, to be happy. To not be sick all the time for the rest of her life.

    And I want to apologize myself for not commenting on the last chapter. I wanted to, but this was such a sensible and touching topic I had to deal with before (not as personal experience though). I always like to speculate, think things through, and didn’t want to spoil this chapter with going on about other events, as this one is one I don’t want to carry in my head all day. Sorry.

      There’s no need to apologize at all 🙂 You don’t have to comment on every single chapter.

      I loved your thoughts and insights about Tobi as a father. And I totally agree that the fact that he was almost a kid himself when he became a parent probably had a big affect on what kind of parent he was. Like you said, he loved his kids and was trying to do what he thought was best for them. But that wasn’t always the right ting to do, necessarily. :-/ But he’s definitely learned from these mistakes and finally found peace with all of it at last 🙂

      Hopefully Zayne will be able to figure out what Tobi truly meant by this advice, and apply it as best as he can to poor Harper 😦 Thank you so much for reading!

    A two tissue chapter!😥😥 I got so emotional even before Jocelyn walked in on the conversation. Still sniffing…well maybe 3 tissues. 😢😢😢It was so sad to see Tobi feeling alone and facing his mortality head on. I got mad at him so many times because he definitely acted before thinking things through. But I always had a soft spot for him too. We needed their daddy/daughter moment. Some healing for both of them.

    Then you just piled it on with Harpers diagnosis – of course I was a tiny bit prepared for that. Poor Zayne having to deal with it without Hope. Now he has to tell her and break her heart. I am glad we are time jumping to her pre-teen years. By that time they have gone through everything are hopefully accepting and dealing with it better. And Zayne listened to his grandfather’s advice and will support her. But I have a feeling she is going to be hell on wheels!

    Oh, I just thought, by then we may have at least two more tombstones in the family cemetery. I hope Jocelyn is still around anyway. Where’s that tissue box! 😢

    Whew! What a way to end the toddler years! Whoa.

      Yeah, this chapter was super emotional all-around 😦 Thank you for your wonderful comment, Audrey!

      You are so right that Tobi is facing his own mortality in this one, and it’s really hard for him. There’s a lot he regrets and wishes he could change about the past, and the fact that he’s almost out of time is really hitting hard 😦 He definitely needed that little moment with Jocelyne (I’m sure they had a nice conversation after Zayne left the room… But we will all have to imagine ourselves what they might have discussed!)

      As for Harper… Yeah, this will not be easy on them 😦 Not at first, anyway. Like you said, that’s actually kind of the reason I am skipping ahead farther than usual… I want us to start out at a time when they’re used to her hearing problems (and her hearing aid… she wears one in her left ear!) so that the focus of the story can be on other things (though her hearing problems are always going to come into play, unfortunately! 😦 )

      I will confirm for you that Jocelyne will still be around in the next arc 🙂 But I am very sorry to say that Tobi and Colette will not be 😥 Part of why it felt so important to give Tobi this moment. I wanted the last time we see him to be a moment where he is loving toward his family and repenting a bit for his past mistakes. 😦

      I’m glad you’re looking forward to this generation! 🙂 I’m sorry she ended up not being completely deaf haha. I am a teacher and I have taught several students (including some recently) with hearing loss, so the way she hears is going to kind of be based on the children I’ve worked with 🙂

      I think people are mostly concerned with how she is treated by her peers and stuff as she gets older. I do also think that it can be difficult for people who have hearing loss but are not completely deaf. They are kind of caught between the deaf and hearing communities, but don’t 100% “belong” in either one, y’know? But hopefully Harper will find her way!

    Okay, my thought on this are..Unlike most people, I don’t think that not being able to hear that well will be much of a pain to Harper…She was born this way, and will most likely get used to it, you can’t miss what you never even had before…I’m only afraid that people around her will be all sad and pity for her, and she will feel this way By default…I think this will affect more Zayne and Hope, that will feel sad for their daugther not being able to hear, and may make her feel sad, Because, like I said,” if everyone is sad about this, then, I guess I also should be.”

      Hope’s grandmother is technically half-alien 🙂 She’s like 1/8 alien, I believe. So technically the Rosebrooks how have alien DNA 😮 (But since aliens aren’t acknowledged in A2A-world, we just ignore the green members of Hope’s family tree 😉 hehe)
