Betsy’s Legacy: Chapter 1

Sorry I have not been around, I accidentally deleted my downloads folder and spent 5 (yes, I said five) days on a download spree.  I had just gotten that done when I got an email that another transcriptionist had shoulder surgery so I have taken over her orthopedic doctor and the dictations are backed up to 8/8/2014.  Today, I think I will have caught them up to 8/12/2014.  It’s a slow process and I am trying to get 20 dictations a day done plus my own work that has to be kept current.  It took me four days to catch up her work and then my own, but as of now, I have 0 work and now it’s time to get Betsy going.

Betsy was pretty horrified to find out that her mother was not going to help her out with a new home even though she had managed to graduate highest in her class.  Kira insisted that she do this on her own for at least the first week.  Betsy was really upset.  She had already survived her childhood and now she had to try and survive on her own?  Wonderful.

Betsy quickly realized that she could only afford un unfurnished apartment.  She managed to find a job in medicine, at least.

Circe Beaker became her first friend outside of her own family.  Circe made it a point to come home with Betsy every day practically.

~~lighting mod sucks.  It will be gone soon though~~

 Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_20_02_24_495

They showed up one night.  She tried to avoid them, but they were everywhere.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_20_12_21_279

They called themselves The Crew, not that Betsy wanted anything to do with them.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_20_47_30_465

She kept to herself for the most part.  Then she realized that without friends, she would never get past level two at work.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_20_48_54_270

Circe was happy to be her friend.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_20_37_38_191

She finally knew she had to befriend “The Crew”, but she was not happy about that.  She quickly found out that they were not happy about it either.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_20_54_17_442

Betsy finally decided that enough was enough.  She would much rather earn skill points than make friends any day.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_20_55_02_997

Lyle was a now a friend, but Betsy still was more interested in her books.  Betsy quickly found out that “The Crew” ran the apartments and Lyle, well Lyle became their play toy.

 Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_21_35_18_867

The Crew finally wore Betsy down.  She started finding herself chatting with them and they all tended to come to her house just as she was making dinner.  Betsy started getting promotions.   She soon was able to afford little things like clothes and makeup.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_21_46_13_793

Maybe this was why none of The Crew were interested in her?

Kincaid:  Or it could be that we were dancing separately and glitched into each other.  Bobby, stand up and back away.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_21_51_59_084

Every night the crew came out and Betsy would go down and meet a new member.  She still had no interest in any of them, but friends were good.

 Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_22_11_27_466

And then one day, ACR took over.  Betsy got her first kiss from Kincaid Broke.

~Hey, who turned on this event crap?  Ugh  Stupid UC update I bet~

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_22_12_37_693

Betsy had never felt like this before and suddenly found herself with her first crush.

Kinicaid, on the other hand, won the bet.  He ran off to tell the guys that he nailed her first.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_22_22_06_242

It only took about two seconds to diagnose herself.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_22_23_03_372

It took a few hours to get over the shock and anger.  Just as she was coming to terms with being an unwed mother, disaster struck.  The stress of being poor, alone and pregnant caused her to have a miscarriage.  Then she killed the toilet, sink, and tub.

It really just was not a good life for poor Betsy.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_22_24_09_844

The loss of the baby hit her pretty hard.  She drowned herself in cakes and pies.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_22_33_02_511

She finally knew she just had to talk to her mom and they cried over the loss together.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_22_35_09_588

The talk was just what she needed.  She was able to tackle more skilling.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_22_41_06_814

And more of The Crew.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_22_43_28_612

At the end of the day, when she was finally alone and when it was the most quiet, she still mourned  the loss of her baby.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_22_45_21_364

Just when she thought she would never recover, her family swooped in.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_22_47_18_249

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_22_47_22_691

And then the unexpected happened!  Betsy was horrified to see her step-mother and sister going at it!  She watched her mother pretend not to notice, but she looked devastated.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_22_47_59_399

Betsy and Circe tried to ignore the going ons and trade their favorite recipes.  Betsy looked up just in time to see that it was Olympia with Sherry and they were going into the photo booth!

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_22_49_03_643

Betsy pretty much ignored her family that night and just played with Circe.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_22_50_46_739

After sending everyone home, Betsy felt like crap.  She was starving even though she had just eaten and she was exhausted.  She jumped into her energizer and decided to just skill for the rest of the night.

 Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_22_51_11_600

No!  Not again!  Betsy could not believe she had gotten pregnant again.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_22_54_28_200

Deuce was pretty high up in The Crew, but somehow, Betsy had never spoken to him before.  They chatted one day for a little while.  He commented on how she glowed, and she hastily assured him that it must be the newest makeup she had added to her collection.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_22_58_21_426

Like moths to a flame, The Crew seemed to gravitate towards Betsy more and more.  She could not go anywhere without them crowding her.

Not that she actually minded, of course.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_22_58_37_381

Kincaid cornered her just minutes later and in full view of the other men, told her she better not lose this child, like she had lost his or else.  Betsy was not sure how he knew, but he had scared her with his unvoiced threats.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_23_03_42_343

They Crew started hanging out at her place more and more.  Sometimes they even let the other renters come in too.  Betsy tried to ignore them all.  She much preferred her own company and would go off to skill while everyone else had fun.

 Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_23_05_16_525

Betsy’s hormones were off the charts.  She never cared who was around when her urges struck.  She was almost to the point of not caring who it was she attacking.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_23_06_08_259

Betsy pulled herself away from Mark and hurried back to her piano. Mark loved to dance while she played.  The others watched her, but chose to keep their distance.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_23_10_59_674

Betsy performed all night and eventually maxed her last skill.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_23_12_56_622

With nothing left to do, Betsy spent her time cooking…and eating.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_23_14_58_139

Steve cornered Betsy in the gym to find out how the pregnancy was going.  Betsy was wary around him, as the leader of The Crew, she had avoided him really easy up until this point.

 Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_23_16_20_662

One of the neighbors tried to stop Steve, but he just went around her and told her to watch out she would find herself flat on her back real quick.  Betsy did not protest when Steve dragged her into the photo booth.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_23_22_05_275

Betsy was still the best cook in the complex.  She was also quite happy to share her blueberry cheesecake recipe.

 Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_23_23_03_490

Betsy could not let it happen again!  The Crew swarmed her, each one urging her to take a bath, or put her feet up.  Did she need more food?  How about a massage?

Betsy just wanted them to all just shut up and go away.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_23_33_34_452

Just a little while later, the crisis had passed.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_23_38_58_828

Betsy answer to all of her issues was to eat more.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_23_49_11_446

Then it was time.  Betsy and the baby had survived the pregnancy.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_23_49_40_535

Jordan was the spitting image of his father, Mark.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_17_23_50_04_766

But Jacob was a nice mixture of the two.

Sims2EP9_2014_08_18_00_17_10_094

Betsy was exhausted after the delivery, but she knew she had to get to work.  She quickly hired a nanny when she could not get one of the guys on the phone.

She was just across the courtyard when she saw a couple of people unlocking the doors to The Crew’s apartments.  She cornered Mrs. Ward, who said that she showed up this morning and all of their apartments were empty.

Betsy did not know what do except go to work and deal with the rest later.

Much later.

*Note*  The Crew belong to Sleepycat.  You can find their start here and later on in their lives here.  You can also find them here and here.  In fact, after almost 10 years, you can pretty much find them anywhere. Oh and we cannot forget the Fertile Five    They even have Sims 3 versions too.  Steve Broke is the Grandson of Brandi (the son of the child she is pregnant with in a new hood).
