She's So High

Round 8 - January 2042
Last update/ Next update
Joe Carr is 46, Kayden is 12, Javion is 10, Layla and Lauren are 3 (Gallagher Newson is 12, Kali Knowles, and Carl Faulkner are 14)

What can a guy like me, ever really offer?
She's perfect as she can be, why should I even bother?
Cuz she's so high, high above me, she's so lovely
She's so high, like Cleopatra, Joan of Arc, or Aphrodite 
She's so high, high above me

Ariel had been working very long hours at the recording studio, which left Joe taking care of the twins most of the time. Kevin Knowles had picked up a lot of the slack at the hospital, but Joe was getting a bit tired of potty training and feedings. He needed a break!

But he knew that Ariel had given up her dream of becoming a singer once they started having the kids. And he knew that working in the recording studio and helping other artists was very rewarding for her. Besides, it wasn't all THAT bad spending his days with his little ladies. There was a lot of Ariel in them, but they were still two of the sweetest little girls in the world........at least, as far as he was concerned!

And being home allowed him to really see their personalities develop. They weren't that different from one another, though Layla was slightly more shy than her sister. They were both quite serious and active, traits he was sure that they got from him!

Javion felt like he was the only one in their house that was still normal! His mom was gone all the time at her new job. His dad was always running around the house after the twins. And Kayden..........

Javion was positive that his brother had a crush on Kali Knowles. Oh he wouldn't admit to it. But he was always running off to the teen lounge downtown, hoping that he would run into her. Javion just didn't get it......she was just a girl! His dad told him that he would be like that one day, but he knew better. Girls were gross and whiney, just look at his sisters!

Kayden didn't like Kali......at least, not like that. He didn't know where his brother was getting that stuff from. Besides, she was two years older than him and was totally into that douche Carl. Not that he cared. Because he didn't like her like that.......

"What is with you boys and video games?" Kali asked.
"They're fun, what do you mean?"
"You're just pressing buttons and watching characters do silly stuff. I don't get why it's fun," she said.
"Maybe because there's a lot more to it than that," Kayden said laughing.

"Oh please. You hit the little ball, it bounces off of bumpers, you get points. It's not exactly rocket science," she said.
"Oh really? Well how about you give it a go? See if you can beat my score," Kayden said.
"Fine. Be prepared to have your butt kicked!"

He knew she would never beat his score. But he thought it was cute that she would try. Not cute in a he likes her kind of way, cute in the way that his sisters were constantly trying to do things that they were too young to do........

"Hmmmmm.....seems to me that you failed," Kayden said laughing.
"All I need is a little more practice. I mean, how many hours have you wasted playing this? Of course you're better at it," she said.
"Yea, yea. It just sounds like you're being a sore loser to me," he said still laughing.
"We'll see. I definitely want a rematch."

"Anytime you're ready, Knowles."
"I'll hold you to that. Don't cry when I beat you."
"No worries. Since that will never happen, I don't have to worry about crying," Kayden said laughing.
"We'll see. Carl just got here, I'll talk to you later," she said walking off.
"Yea, later.........."

He didn't care. So she ditched him as soon as lover boy got there. He didn't care. It's not like they were friends or anything. They just went to the same school. She could talk to whoever she wanted. So what if Carl wasn't a good guy for her. It was none of his business.........

"Why can't you just admit that you like the girl?" Gallagher asked once he arrived.
"Because I don't like her! What is with everybody?"
"We have eyes man. But whatever, keep pretending. Doesn't matter anyway," Gallagher said.
"What do you mean?"
"Everyone knows she's all crazy about Carl. Plus, you're younger than her anyway. Not that it matters, because you don't like her......right?"

"Oh then. Change of subject," Gallagher said.
"Great. So when are you going to admit that you like Imara?"
"What?! I don't! I mean, she's not as weird as I thought she was, but I definitely don't like her!"
"Whatever man. Telling me who I like, you can't even figure out who you like!" Kayden said.
"NO ONE. Look, neither of us likes anybody. Case closed," Gallagher said.
"Fine. Case closed. Now lets go play some games!"
And so, without even realizing it, both boys did what men have been doing for centuries........they denied their true feelings.

* I think this group of kids will be kind of fun to play. Lots of potential drama here lol

* I know Ariel wasn't in any of the shots (didn't realize it till I started writing this update), but she was at work most of the time. This became more about Kayden anyway :)

* Kayden and Gallagher.....smh......those two have major crushes on these young ladies. No idea if anything will come of it, but Kali had a few wants related to Kayden, so who knows. If Carl messes up in the future, I'm sure Kayden would be totally willing to step in lol. 

* The twins will be four in August, and I'm so looking forward to seeing how they behave as children. They are both very outgoing, so they should be lots of fun to play at the school. 


  1. Ha, just wait a couple of years, Javion! See what you think about girls then! ;)

    Interesting that Kali rolled some Kayden wants. I wonder what Carl would think about that!

  2. LOL! Kayden and Gallagher, I can see why you said that these kids would be interesting to play

  3. Carla - Yes, Javion will definitely change his tune lol. Carl probably wouldn't be too happy about it lol. Although I don't know, he's a romance sim so he may not care at all :/

    Apple Valley - They really will be fun to play I think :). I'm excited about seeing them develop

  4. Javion is too cute. Girls are gross... for now! He's what, 11. Wait two more years, then the hormones will kick in and he'll be girl crazy. lol

    Kayden and Gallagher, they have their eyes on some really pretty girls. Not sure if it will pan out in the end, but they are young, and a whole slew of girls to come.

  5. Kayden and Gallagher are so fun together! And kayden is cute! I'd love to see Carl make a mistake I do declare! And javion, yah give it time! Looking forwardto seeing the twins age up. They are adorable little tykes.


Thanks so much for reading and commenting! Awesomeness :)
