4.23 – Unresolved problems

ScreenshotCain’s POV

I’m happy I got myself a job, but I have to say, the office reminds me of a closet.


I have to say, twinbrook doesn’t have much when it comes to job opportunities.  Only the town’s school had a job for a psychologist, and apparently there aren’t many psychologists because I was accepted on the spot.


I finished up and left my ‘office’, grabbing my coat on the way out.


It feels weird walking through these halls again. I still remember when Melody was obsessed with that guitar. It feels even weirder to be the last one to leave.


This is only my second day on the job and so far I have no students. The principal said there were no students who needed immediate attention just yet, but I looked over some of the student files and I have to say, a lot of the students could use some help.


One of these being Max. But I can’t force the students to come. Either their parents sign them up, they come willingly or their attitude in class is so bad that the teachers send them to me. Though the teachers don’t seem very enthusiastic about it.


The kids seemed to have taken the fact that I work at their school pretty well. Mary nearly tried to sign up so she could be with me. I love that kid.


I opened the door to be greeted with a wave of music. Melody had this touch with the children. They adored her, especially when she played her guitar.

I wonder how long Melody will be staying? And it’s already been a year. Does she want to stay here for the rest of her life?


“Dad!” Mary ran over once she’d noticed me. “Can I have a dog like Sariel and Max?”


I didn’t get the chance to answer.

“Stop trying to copy us! You’re not even part of this family!” Max snarled.


And then he stormed off, but I wasn’t having any of it.


I followed him. He can’t say that to his sister and expect to get away with it.

“Max.” I called trying the handle, but I could tell he was trying to keep it shut.

I pounded on the door.


“NO! GO away! I’m mad against you too!”

Those words hit me full on. I remembered Irene’s death, I remembered how I’d acted and I felt guilty all over again.

I leaned my head on the door.

I miss you so much Irene.

    Stop it! Stop it right now! Give Cain a break! Its not fair! XD

    Poor Max. He seems so confused with what to feel. He might not realize it but I feel so bad for him! And Mary! Gah! I just wanna give her a big giant hug! I am glad Cain is so mature about her exsistance. I am also glad that Sariel seems to be well adjusted considering what she has been through!

    Btw, Hi! XD Found your blog today and couldn’t stop XD I’m enjoying it immensely 😛
    Cheers 🙂

      Hi to you too!
      And it might not be obvious, but I feel the same way. I feel horrible for what I did to Cain! But at least I didn’t kill him off like I did with Rosahelminthe.
      That’s great! And thanks for commenting, it motivates me to write! 🙂 (especially when I spend the whole day fighting against a crashing sims because I installed a new expansion pack XD)


      • Ica Paige says:

        I love commenting! So don’t worry about that 😉 Although you are the first blog I have found that isnt years old and I can actually comment… Makes me very excited!

        Ugh! the dreaded crashing games… I had to stop playing for a year because it crashed so bad it broke my computer. It refuses to read the CDS now. Although I just bought every single sims 3 expansion/stuff pack/town for myself for christmas.. We shall see how that goes XD

        Alrighty… now to catch up! 😛

          Relatively the same here. At the time my computer sucked and the game lagged so much it became literally unplayable. I decided to give up on my old story and disinstall the whole thing because it was stressing me out.
          When I did come back to sims the dvd wouldn’t work either so I called EA and they put it on for me on origin! So I buy all my expansion packs of there and it works perfectly. Might want to try that if it doesn’t work for you.


  2. I love this blog and have been reading it forever and I finally commented. I still have no idea what to think of Mary she seems like a good kid but…… I gotta catch up more!!

    I notice in most sim stories that writers often have difficulty putting their sims through hard times. You are able to risk “killing your darlings” and it makes for a compelling read.

    I’m just… amazed. And moved. And really really hoping Cain catches a break.


    • blamsart says:

      *nervous cough* Yeah, I do have more ease when it comes to making them suffer…
      Maybe the fact that I have them all saved in the bin gives me a sort of guarantee? (then again I forgot to save Irene ;'()
