A/N: Hello all, this round I’ll just be telling the story.. I got a bit tired of the whole Mr. Smith and Ms. President thing, so I’ve decided to give him a vacation or something.. Maybe he’ll return, if I feel like it
Hello Laurinda and Ronan.. Nice to see you’ve met and taking a liking to one another..
Soon Laurinda Pendley changed her name to Laurinda Hesselholdt, and Ronan moved in. Of course this will still officially be the Pendley household, in which Eric will take over as the 2.nd generation when he is old enough, and then Laurinda and Ronan will start their own household somewhere new..
maybe some of you recognize Ronan, since he was once Marni’s lover. Therefore he also inherited some money from her…
Ronan is a knowledge sim, with the LTW of topping the gaming field. He is a pisces who is neat, shy, active, serious but also very nice.
And soon their marriage was consumated. What..? Bad toast, Laurinda??
but eventhough Laurinda was having a baby with another man, she didn’t forget about the children she had had with Stephen, and she spent time with them, when she was able to.
Especially it became quite important for her to spend as much time with Lois as possible, ‘cause she was growing fast and were soon to be off to college.
“Just like Nelson just left for college… I’m getting to old for this” thought Laurinda, and decided that this would be the last. She couldn’t help but hope for a boy to carry on the Hesselholdt name..
Sometimes she felt like parts of the past could be passing her with a quick and cold breeze. She thought to herself that it must be the pregnancy-brain women were said to have when they expected. Maybe it was just because her senses were stronger now when she was expecting…
But sometimes her senses weren’t at their best, and once she even set the stove on fire by an accident.
Luckily it was quickly put out, put Despina still felt bad about bringing so many of her loved ones in danger.
And it got worse! One day Eric was very tired, but also hungry. When he went to the fridge, he said something had scared him – To Lois he had said that it was the ghost of his father that scared him – and Eric got so scared that he almost fainted by exhaustion.
Somehow the authorities got to hear about this, probably after Eric had told about it in school, and they decided that his home wasn’t a fitting home for a child.
Imagine Despina’s despair and fear when they came to pick up Eric, and she had a little new one in her belly. She couldn't help but wonder if she had been wrong all those years, and if she really was a bad parent?!
Luckily Ronan went to talk about this with the authorities and explained what had happened. The whole ghost thing couldn’t really be possible, it must have been because he was so tired he had thought he saw something. It took some persuasion, but in the end Ronan came back with Eric to Despina, eventhough with a warning to remember to keep Eric well fed, to make sure he got his sleep and that he should start with a shrink to talk about his fathers death. All of this Ronan had agreed to, of course, and had headed home.
Because of all this stress from Eric being taken by the social workers, Despina went into labour the day after…
and little Ronja was born. Despina loved her little brownhaired bunddle of joy, eventhough it wasn’t a boy as she had hoped for.
Ronan of course didn’t mind either.
“As long as it’s is a healthy and strong baby, I’m happy” said Ronan, when hearing about Despina’s concerns.
And so all was good, for now….
