6.48: Three Million Euros

It’s kinda crazy how quickly things can turn around sometimes. One minute things are amazing. Wonderful. Perfect. Then, in the blink of an eye, it all changes.

Your boyfriend loses his job. Or overdoses on heroin. You get caught shoplifting. Or find out you’re pregnant. Everything starts falling apart so fast.

But sometimes, things can change for the better too. Sometimes you’re feeling lost and helpless, and then exactly what you need just falls right into your lap.

Your teacher pairs you up with the two best friends you’ve ever had. The tutor you’d been dreading to meet ends up being the love of your life. One glance at a fuzzy little sonogram image makes you fall in love.

Or a simple mail mix-up ends up solving all your money problems.

Okay, maybe not all of them… There’s a couple things I still have to pay for myself, like the rent on our apartment. Or helping Erik pay his dealer. He’s still pretty stubborn about trying to use his own money for that… but he’s really scraping the bottom of the bucket these days, so I’ve gotta step in sometimes.

But that’s all stuff we can handle on our own. I’m not worried about it anymore. Because there’s so much more that’s all taken care of now. Our heating and electricity bills. Our internet. Our phone bills. Our credit card bills… Anything you can pay online with a bank account.

And it’s all thanks to my Oma.

She gave me a pile of mail the last time I was over there. Random junk mail and other crap that keeps getting sent to my parents’ house by mistake. And I wasn’t even gonna look at any of it, to be honest. I was ready to just toss it all in the trash. But I was feeling so shitty after talking to my parents that I kinda needed something to distract myself. So I decided to go through it.

And that’s when I saw it — One of Oma’s bank statements. I guess she accidentally put it in the pile with my stuff by mistake.

I just about died when I opened it and saw her account balance. For one crazy moment, I thought there’d been the biggest screw-up in history and I was looking at MY account… that would’ve been a freaking miracle, huh? I couldn’t help laughing at myself when I realized what was really going on. As if I’d ever get that lucky!

But… Then I realized maybe I still was lucky.

I just couldn’t get over how much money it was…

It’s not like it’s any huge secret that Oma’s freaking loaded or anything. She got SO much money from her Papa when he died. My Ur-Opa Tobi was one of the most famous football players in all of Germany. He had a huge fortune to leave behind for everybody when he was gone… And I always knew my Oma got a huge chunk of it. Way more than what’s in that account, even. I know that’s not all of it.

But God, seeing that number alone was just crazy. Three million euros…

Maybe that sounds weird coming from someone like me. Money was never a big deal for my family. I mean, my parents always spoiled me like crazy when I was growing up. I always got what I wanted. But that was probably hundreds that they spent on me. Maybe thousands. But not millions!

Obviously I know my parents have a fortune of their own tucked away somewhere… But I’ve never actually seen that much money all at once before.

Like, imagine what you could do with THREE MILLION EUROS!

Or honestly, these days even three HUNDRED would be a huge deal for me and Erik.

And I guess that’s what got me thinking. We don’t need that much money. It’s not like I’d ever take all of it. But with the baby coming, we definitely could use a little more to get by, y’know?

And like… When’s my Oma ever gonna need all that money anyway? Especially when I know she has millions more tucked away somewhere too!

She probably won’t even notice if we take a few hundred from her account every now and then, right? Just some online payments here and there. Nothing huge. Nothing she’d ever miss!

And she’s already gonna leave me a bunch of money as inheritance someday, won’t she? Is it really a big deal if I take it a little early?

I know, I know. It sounds so awful… But it’s not like I really have a choice. My stupid parents let me down… again! What else was I supposed to do?! And it’s not like I want to do this. It’s not like I enjoy it…

Okay, okay… maybe I do a little. And I kinda hate that I do. But it’s such a different rush than shoplifting! Every time I pay another bill I just feel… I don’t even know the word for it. Powerful, maybe? It’s the craziest high.

But that’s not really what matters. That’s not what this is about. And it’s not why I’m doing this.

I’m doing it for Erik. And our child.

And I feel so bad going behind Oma’s back like this… But I would have just asked her for the money if I’d thought she’d say yes! She’s been almost as bad as mom and Papa about the whole money thing. All these stupid ultimatums about breaking up with Erik or forcing him back into rehab…

None of them understand. They can’t. They don’t know what it’s like. They don’t understand how fucking hard this is. It’s so easy for them to say shit like “give him an ultimatum”, or “you need to leave him!”

Without me, he has nothing. I can’t leave him. Especially with the baby coming… he’s the father of my freaking child! How could I ever turn my back on him now?

I just hope having money now will help things. I hope I can convince Erik he doesn’t need a job right now. He’s just gotta get back to rehab and get better. And things are already heading in the right direction, I think. He can tell things are way less tight than they used to be. All our bills are getting paid on time now. I’m a lot less stressed about money now than I used to be… And he’s definitely noticing.

I guess the hardest part is just trying to explain where we’re getting all this money from. It’s only been a couple weeks since I got Oma’s account info, and I think Erik’s already getting suspicious. He’s been asking me whether I got a raise at work or something. And how often I’ve been ‘shopping’ lately…

That’s kinda his code word for when I start taking stuff. He hates it so much. He never tells me that, but I know he does. He just never says anything because he knows how bad we need the money. As long as it helps him get his fix and keeps a roof over our heads, he’s willing to put up with it.

This is so different though. I can’t even imagine how he’d feel if he found out about Oma. He’s already uncomfortable enough with the shoplifting… I just feel like he wouldn’t really understand. He’d think we’re betraying Oma or something.

But he knows how badly we need this. I don’t think he’d be able to actually say no. And it kills me to think of what the guilt would do to him. He’s already fallen so low…

Ugh! I’m such a fucking coward. I’m just too afraid to tell him where the money’s really coming from. That’s not his burden to bear. It’s mine.

But it’s really starting to drive me crazy keeping all these secrets from him…

Though there’s one I don’t think I’m gonna be able to keep for much longer.

I have to tell him soon. I can feel it. I wouldn’t say I have a “baby bump” yet, but I’m definitely gaining a little weight. And I guess I’ve been acting a little different too. These hormones are fucking me up so bad. It won’t be long before Erik starts connecting the dots… And I’ve gotta tell him the truth before he does.

I’m still not totally sure HOW I’m gonna tell him, or when… But I’m at least feeling a little better about finally coming clean. Better than I was before, at least.

He won’t have to worry about money now. He won’t have to stress out about finding a job. He won’t have to freak out about how we’re gonna afford a baby.

The only thing he’ll have to worry about is getting back to his old self again.

I know it won’t be easy… But he’ll do it. He’ll find a way. He’ll do it for me. And our baby.

Then everything will go back to the way it’s supposed to be.

  1. Harper has a big storm coming if she thinks taking that money is even a little okay. There’s no way that Joce isn’t going to notice, even if she is loaded. And I have a feeling that a couple hundred dollars here and there is going to escalate quickly.

    Ugh. It’s only a matter of time before Jocelyn finds out. The bank will call or she’ll eventually check her statement. Then what are you going to do? You are stealing from your own family. That’s sinking to a new low. If she would have told them about the baby they may be more inclined to help. Maybe even offered to pay those bills for her. But now….she just burned the last bridge she had with her family. 😥

    Tell Erik about the baby before he figures it out. She has waited way too long already. It may well change his outlook and give him the reason he needs to get clean.

  5. Ah Harper. Such a delued Rosebrook. Although tbh, i wondered if she ever asked for money to have Erik go into rehab rather than for bills and shit. Cuz she’s not wrong. If Erik can pull his own head out of his ass and ask for help and realize he doesn’t need to provide he can focus on his health, he’d have a chance. Having her parents support them while he goes to rehab would probably be a good way out…of course they make her live at home while he’s in treatment and she’d resent that.

    1. She’s definitely never asked for rehab money, only bill money. Because she knows that’s what’s holding Erik back — the need to provide for her and help pay the bills. Once those aren’t a concern, she thinks it’ll be easier to convince him to try rehab again… but we shall see 😉

  6. Harper being Harper. I am so furious. I know of some cases of people like Harper (and a combination with drug-addiction too), and she is seriously wrecking it worse than ever. Stealing like that. Sure, it is not going to hurt her Oma financially… but it IS going to hurt her trust, her love for Harper,and it will make her feel so bad whenever she finds out. And all because Harper thinks she knows everything better than everyone else. As it wouldn’t be a howling alarm siren that her Oma needs to intervene and try to advice her instead of allowing her little spoiled ass. And that whole “I took it because she wouldn’t give it” is just so shitty. In life you need to earn things, kid. Yes, turning 18 doesn’t turn people into adults, but people start to mature and grow with their decisions, but it’s been years and an upcoming baby and she still thinks and acts like a bratty teen.

    I don’t know what Erik could say. I could even think of him leaving her (or killing himself) because he doesn’t want to ruin her life like that (which would be a pretty awful turning). His drug-induced depression may lead him to dangerous things…

    It’s funny how these chapters make Joce feel so sane and responsible even in her worst years…

  7. Justice WitcHazard: Oh Harper everyone knows if you ever happen upon an account with a large amount of money you should one take a pic of the account number then return it to its rightful owner! Get any benefits from doing that good deed! Then wait a month to track their spending habits then only take one third of what they spend and it has to be in the same day they took it out of the bank!

    Dark WitcHazard:Justice Harper clearly isn’t smart enough or has the patience for a plan like that so ssh! Let her be the first Rosebrook to have a baby in jail!

    Lover WitcHazard: Oh my goodness I just had a bad thought what if Hozay and Joce find out about the money then Hozay decides to send their daughter to jail to teach her a lesson but when the cops come to the house Erik is using or getting some drugs then both of them end up in jail!

    Emotional WitcHazard: Knowing Hozay they’d probably say Erik did it to support his habit! Of course this idea would be dismantled the moment they realize Harper’s pregnant!

    Dark WitcHazard: Yeah then be like oh she’s pregnant that’s why she’s making all these bad decisions then Joce is like but she was making bad decisions before she was pregnant! Ssh we’re trying to get our baby out of jail! Aren’t you the ones who put her there! Hehe 😝

She refuses to try doing it her parents’ way, where it’s in the form of an ultimatum. She’s convinced herself that if he doesn’t worry about money anymore, she can get him to willingly go.

  10. First of all, I had a bit of a “WHOA” moment at the change of the site, but I think I’m figuring out how to navigate it. Ha ha. It does look very nice, though. Very organized indeed.

    Onto the actual chapter, Harper, no. You don’t need to be stealing from your grandmother like that. But… I can tell she’s not likely to stop this any time soon unless someone is able to notice the discrepancy or she slips somewhere. This is spiraling wildly out of control, oh my goodness.

    Erik might notice that things are getting better, but Harper just said herself that he thinks he could be getting suspicious and that he already hates her shoplifting. Yes, he may know that they NEED that money, but once again she’s said herself about what the guilt could do to him if he finds out what’s actually happening while he’s already so low. I do not foresee that ending well when or if he does find out, though it sounds like he already might have a guess of what’s happening (maybe or maybe not stealing from someone’s bank account, but at least some not so good activities).

    I still don’t know if the baby will help Erik get back on his feet or not. One part would like to believe that surely he’d try to get better if he knew it meant supporting his child, but then with added stress (the financial situation might be solved, yes, but who’s the say the idea of having a child while he’s so low won’t cause a pandemonium of problems in of itself. If he already feels like he’s a total screw up with Harper who knows if he’d feel better or WORSE with the idea of a child) the other part of me feels like it could just force him into a deeper state.

    It feels like Harper is leaning a little too heavily on the whole idea of “everything will go back to totally normal when this thing happens” and it’s yet to be seen if such a thing will actually work out as perfectly as she wants/expects it to or if there’s going to be a complete turn and everything will spiral even further out of control, or at least out of her imagination or idea of what was “supposed” to happen.

  12. It’s definitely the first heir I can’t stand. I think she’s damaging Erik and that he should let her go for his own sake. She was really bad news for him all along. He’s not innocent, but she’s making the situation worst. I don’t think he will be able to abandon her and the kid, but I really hope they’ll break up. I think he’ll want that. He can’t take care of a child, but neither can Harper. I can’t see a happy ending for her at the moment.
    I was angry with Mari and with Zayne, when they acted like fools, but Harper is a new level of foolishness. Plus her way to blame others, to see herself like a victim and justify her bad actions make me desire to punch her face!

    I will say, as someone who lives paycheck to paycheck and did have to borrow a lot of money from my parents when I moved recently, the joy of paying your bills and paying off your debt is such a relief. But there’s a good chance you’re spending a lot more because of a specific person in your life…

I know she truly loves him and cares for him, but she’s not showing it right now. Like, you might wanna tell him he’s going to be a dad, right?

  17. Something will end up happening to Joce, and then Harper will see just how much she’s not hurting anybody, when they can’t afford medical bills. I’d almost bet that’s all the money Joce has, no matter what Harper may think. That’s probably her entire retirement/inheritance, right there. Getting old is expensive. Insurance goes up, medical care goes up…

    Just when you think Harper can’t get any lower, she does.

    1. I think the baby will be born all right. Birth defects/behavioral problems mostly happen due to a mother on drugs/alcohol during pregnancy. I’m not sure that the genetic contributions of the father are adversely affected by drug use. It’s possible, but it would not be as dangerous as Harper being exposed. Of course if he’s exposing her to anything like tobacco/marijuana smoke, that’d be a problem.

      No, the big problem is going to be a toddler getting into Daddy’s drug stash. And we all know that once he’s comfortable the bills will be paid, Erik’s not going to rehab. What does he need rehab for? Now the bills are being paid and he doesn’t need a job; after all, Harper has a job.

      The girl needs to get out, but she refuses to do so. She even questioned whether she still loves Erik (or who he’s become) at one point. All I can say to that is, should’ve dated Devin while she had the chance.

    1. Harper permanently lives in a dream land… ha! And having the baby in jail is totally not outside the realm of possibility if she doesn’t shape up! Guess time will tell 😉

  21. “simple mail mix-up”
    WAIT mix-up?? Was that not meant for her. Is she STEALING IT. Please don’t let that be the case please please please

    NO NO NO NO NO NO HARPER NO Jocelyne has been your biggest cheerleader you CANT do that!! It will break her heart. I swear to god, (I still don’t know whether to call you Citizen or Amanda) REGARDLESS YOU ARE IN THE SHAME CORNER FOR SIX GENERATIONS STARTING NOW FOR WRITING THIS

    “He’d think we’re betraying Oma or something.”
    YOU ARE

    Simmers After Dark lol maybe I’ll give it a look though I am on the younger cusp of adult. Legally an adult but still a teenager. I like chatting with new people, and I love finding sims stories. The dramatic more mature ones being my favorites(hence why I love A2A so maybe I’ll see more stuff like that :O )

    1. Yeah, unfortunately she’s stealing from her sweet grandmother 😦 Nooooo! It’s so awful.

      And six generations, huh? So even longer than the actual legacy will be! LOL

      SAD is pretty fun! Very small community though. But it’s a fun place to stop by and hang out 🙂 And there are some great stories posted there! If you like mature and adult, you might like No Stars Over Uptown. But it’s VERY adult and VERY dark. It makes A2A look like a children’s story haha. So it might be too much, idk. But I figured I’d mention it, since you said dramatic and mature is your cup of tea! 🙂

      1. I saw that on Trip’s blog(I think) since I started Eight Cicadas. I’m surprisingly very dark. I used to write a lot about like death and suicide to cope, so on that hand I think I’d be fine lol I might check that story out and I’ll get back to you on what I think lol

    2. (Also, Uptown is techncially an A2A spinoff, because the main character is Axel, Remi’s friend from Zayne’s teen arc. Remi and Zayne have both shown up in a few uptown chapters 🙂 )

  22. What are the chances that Joce never notices the missing money?

    And Harper is literally buying her boyfriend drugs to continue to shoot up… She thinks she should be bringing a child into that house…?

    Every time I think this can’t get worse or more heartbreaking, it does. At least my wine is delicious!

  23. Ok I am about to insert my simself into this story and slap some sense into Harper are you freaking kidding me stealing from Joce? she has sunk to an all time low. She is enabling Eric, stealing, lying, etc and it will come crashing down someday. These two can’t help themselves…..ugh

    1. You’re so right, they’re spiraling downhill so fast! They could both probably use a good smack from your simself, honestly 😬😬😬
