Alissa: Chapter One Hundred and Thirty-Four

Screenshot-228Alissa answered her phone and was pleased to hear Trent’s voice.   “Hello Trent.”

Screenshot-218“Hi Alissa.  It’s good to hear you sound happy again!”

“I am really happy.  Joy is healthy, and now I have my baby Skylar.”

Trent laughed!  “Your baby!  I bet you have to wrestle Sharlee for her.”

Screenshot-229Alissa laughed too!   “Yeah, Sharlee and Noah!  I really think Skylar is going to be a “Daddy’s girl” just like Sharlee is.”

Screenshot-219“It’s hard to imagine you and Dale as grandparents.”

“It happened sooner than we expected, but we are so glad that we have Skylar now.   She’s just what our family needed to bring us all together.  Dale and Noah are getting along better since she’s been born.  They’re still not exactly friends, but I’ve caught them smiling at each other more.”

“I guess that is a start in the right direction.  The reason I called, Alissa, is that I have some news for you.”

Screenshot-227Alissa’s breath caught.   She didn’t know if it would be good or bad news.  After Joy had become sick, no one in the family was a match to donate marrow.   If Alex had not come forward, there was no guarantee that Joy would have survived long enough before she was at the top of the list of those needing donors from the registry.  Even though Joy had recovered, Alissa had asked Trent to try to find out if she had any relatives from her mother’s side of the family.   She felt that it was time for both she and Crystal to know, whether good or bad.

Screenshot-222“As to who Crystal’s father was, there is really no way of  learning who he was at this point.  Even your mother didn’t know.  She believed that it had to be one of her prostitution clients, but after she came out of jail she was not very discriminating as to who she was “with” like she was before she was incarcerated.   She no longer ran her call girl and drug operation, and she didn’t have the success that she had before.”   He paused, not sure of how to explain to Alissa without hurting or offending her.

Screenshot-225“Trent, I know what kind of person my mother was.   You can’t shock me now.”

Trent continued.  “Before she went to jail, you know that your mother dealt drugs, and that she had her own call girls working for her.  After she was released, she not only dealt drugs, but she became addicted.  She ended up working for a pimp.  After talking with those who knew her, it became clear that the only reason that she had kept Crystal was that she intended to one day break free from her pimp and use Crystal as the first girl in her own new prostitution ring.”

Alissa wasn’t surprised to hear it.  She had guessed how her mother intended to use Crystal.

Trent told her more.  “Her pimp washed his hands of her, and she ended up going even deeper into drugs and prostituting herself.  She’d got Crystal hooked on the drug and distributing it for her as well.   That’s how they ended up with those charges against them before they fled Sunset Valley and came to find you.”

Alissa was so happy that she had her sister and had been able to help her when she’d needed her most.  Crystal’s spirit would have been broken, and she might have even died if she had remained under their mother’s control.

“I’ve found your grandparents, Alissa.”


Her mother would never answer Alissa’s questions about whether her grandparents were still alive and eventually her mother’s angry reaction to the questions had taught Alissa to quit asking.

Screenshot-221“Yes they are still alive and well.   Your mother grew up in small town in New England, called Clearwater.   Her family was very conservative and well respected in the community.   Your grandfather was French and your grandmother was American.  They met when he was sent from France by his company for a job.  He transferred there to Clearwater and they married and raised a family.”

Screenshot-229“Wow, I had no idea.”

“You also have an aunt and two cousins. Your cousins also have children.  Their children are all teenagers.  There are two boys and a girl.”

She asked him, “Do they still live in Clearwater?”

“No, they live in France.   Your grandfather accepted a new position with his company when your mother was in college, and the family moved then.”

“My mother was in college?”

Screenshot-223“Yes.  She attended for two years.   She was going for a degree in Fine Arts, but she dropped out and decided to pursue a singing career.   From all accounts she was a very talented singer and could have done well if she had worked at it.  I’ve spoken to many people who knew her over the years, and it seems that your mother always dreamed of being wealthy.  She wanted to be among the rich and powerful, but didn’t want to do it the hard way.  She met people who convinced her that satisfying a need for “fun” for the wealthy would lead to wealth for herself.  

Of course it didn’t work out the way she had planned.  Her family had cut all ties with her after trying without success to get her to change.  The final straw was when she stole your Aunt’s identity and opened up checking and credit card accounts in her name.   The family didn’t press charges, but made it clear to your mother that she was no longer to have any contact with them until she had turned her life around.”

Screenshot-232“Have you spoken with them?”

“Yes, I have.  I’ve met them, Alissa.  With everything that you’ve been through, I wanted to check everything out myself.   You’ll have to forgive me for being so protective, but you and Dale are like family to me.”

“Awww, thanks, Trent!  Of course, I understand, and I appreciate it.  You are family to us too!”

Screenshot-220“They are very nice, hard working and decent people.   They own a small family run vineyard in Champs Les Sim, France.   It’s been passed down through generations in your grandfather’s family.  They are not super wealthy, but they are comfortable.  Their wealth is tied to the land.  I guess your mother wasn’t satisfied with that.  They had no idea that either you or Crystal existed!   They were thrilled when I told them about you and showed them pictures of you and your family.   They want to meet you.”

Screenshot-233“I want to meet them too.”

They talked a while longer and then Alissa went to find Dale.   She told him the news and then called Crystal.   They decided that Alissa should be the one to call their grandparents.   During the conversation there were a lot of happy tears from Alissa and her grandparents.  They made plans for her and Crystal  to go and visit them soon.  Alissa and Dale had thought it best for she and Crystal to go alone for this first visit and bring the rest of the family at another time.  Alissa couldn’t believe that when she had visited Champs Les Sim in the past, she’d had family there all along!

Screenshot-262George came to see Dale, and they went to his office to talk.

“I just received a call from a buddy on the force in Riverview.   The body of a woman washed up on the riverbanks a couple of weeks ago.  It has now been identified as the body of Betty Simovitch.”

Screenshot-269Dale was dumbfounded!   “How did she die?”

Screenshot-263“The coroner wasn’t able to determine the manner of her death.  However, he does say that it was not by natural causes.   The oddest fact is that she hasn’t been dead for more than a month.”

Screenshot-266“Do they know where she’s been all this time?”

“No, and the file on her disappearance has been closed.  The case is just too cold.  The good thing is that you and Alissa no longer have to worry about her.”

“Yeah, even after all of this time, it’s a big relief; and I know it will be for Alissa too!”

Screenshot-272Alissa and Dale hugged each other after he told her about Betty.  It surprised Alissa to realize that she had not thought about Betty for quite a long time, but she still was very relieved to learn that Betty would not ever be a threat for her and her family again.

Screenshot-273Cara and Kent had broken up after all.  It had been a mutual decision, but Cara was feeling really bummed over it.  Two weeks had passed, and she wasn’t feeling any better. 

Screenshot-276Alissa thought that a change would be good for her and decided to take Cara with her on her trip to France.   Cara had been a lot younger the last time the family had gone, and since she intended to become a professional photographer, Alissa believed that taking pictures of the beautiful scenery in France might lift her spirits.  Cara was excited when she found out that she was going too.    Joy was quiet after she was told that Alissa was going to France.

Screenshot-257“Are you okay, Honey?”

Joy didn’t answer, but Alissa had guessed the problem.

“Is it because I’m going away for a little while?”

Joy nodded her head, yes.

Screenshot-260“You know I’m coming back don’t you?”

Screenshot-259“Yes, but I don’t want you to go!”

“I won’t be gone for long, and Daddy be here with you.  So will the rest of the family.”

Alissa was a little perplexed by Joy’s reaction.   Alissa had been away before, and Joy had even gone many times to see her grandparents in Florida without Alissa.  She had never reacted in this way.  Alissa wondered if it was some insecurity Joy still had after her illness.

Alissa talked it over with Dale, and she decided to take Joy with her as well.   She knew that eventually Joy wouldn’t worry about their being apart; but for now, they needed to make her feel secure.  Cara could look after Joy when Alissa and Crystal needed to talk with their grandparents about adult matters.  Aiden and Shawn were fine with not going this time.   The plans for the trip were finalized, and they would leave at the end of the month.

Screenshot-235Noah and Dale arrived home at the same time and walked into the great room.  They were both shocked to see Christian there with Sharlee.  He was holding Skylar.

Screenshot-240He explained to Dale.  “I came to see the baby and to bring a gift.”

Screenshot-245Dale had wondered the day before when Christian had asked him if Noah was still in school.   Obviously Noah and Christian didn’t like each other, and so Christian’s question had been surprising.  Ordinarily Dale would still be at his practice at this time of the day, and Noah would still be in class.   It was a fluke that they both got home so early.  Dale found it an odd coincidence that Christian had selected a time to visit Sharlee when neither he nor Noah would be expected to be at home.  It gave him an uncomfortable feeling and for the first time, a slightly negative view of Christian.

Noah didn’t like seeing Christian holding his baby.  Skylar was looking at her Dad, and she was like a little antenna.   She sensed that her Dad was upset and started wriggling in Christian’s arms.   Sharlee was surprised because Skylar had never behaved that way with anyone else.  Noah headed for Skylar, but Dale beat him to it.  He took Skylar from Christian and kissed her cheek.

Screenshot-246“How’s Granddaddy’s little Sweet Pea today?”

Screenshot-247Skylar was smiling again.

Screenshot-250Sharlee felt Christian looking at her.

“Thanks for the gift, Christian.”

Screenshot-249“You’re welcome, Sharlee.   I guess I’ll head on out.”

Screenshot-251“Congratulations, Noah.  You’re an extremely lucky man.”


Noah walked Christian to the door and then went over to Dale and Sky.   Dale held her for a few minutes longer and then handed her over to Noah.

Screenshot-256Noah hugged Sky tightly, and she laid against her daddy’s shoulder, perfectly content as she went to sleep.  Sharlee hadn’t expected Christian to visit either, but she could understand that he’d want to see Skylar.  Especially since he knew how difficult her pregnancy had been.  However, if her mother hadn’t been home too, she wouldn’t have let him inside.

Screenshot-254She kissed Noah’s cheek as he held Sky.   She was proud of him for not losing his temper.

  1. Wowowowo
    It was another great chapter, so happy heard Alissa still has a big family in France.

    Was it the new story line that you told to me before? Hmmm, i guess it would be great story line

    Hopefully, Cara will find a better person and enjoy her trip to France. But, you did not put Shawn’s pictures in this chapter. I miss him so much, like i miss Aiden too.

    Skylar, hmmmm, i love her so much, i wanna feel her tiny finger, she is so beautiful when she smile, i love her hair, little blonde.

    Daisy, i love your stories, cant wait the next chapter

    Kiss kiss kiss from Indonesia, LoL

    • Thank you so much Anita!
      Yes, Alissa’s family in France is the start of the new storyline. It will mainly involve her and Crystal although Cara and Joy are going with them to France. 😉

      Awww, you miss Shawn and Aiden? They won’t be the main focus in the next storyline, but that storyline shouldn’t last too long. I promise I’ll feature them again soon!

      I love little Skylar too! She’s adorable! 😀

      Thanks Anita! I’m really glad that you enjoy reading them!

      You are so sweet! 🙂

  2. YAY! I am the second person to comment!

    I loved this chapter so, so much! I was right about Cara and Kent breaking up 😦



  3. Forgot that you put an update up today. I have been reading some of your other stories and got caught up in them. Kristain thinks that Sharlee will be his someday I agree with dale about the negative feelings.
    I never expected when Cara and Kent broke up that Cara would be sad and broken down. Joy is a little cutie! Want to find out more but until next time,


    • I hope you’re enjoying reading them! 🙂

      Christian does know that Sharlee is with Noah, but he wants to make sure that she knows that if her feelings change, he’s still there for her. He wanted to see for himself that she was still happy. At least, that’s his thinking at this point! He doesn’t understand what she sees in Noah.

      Cara didn’t expect to feel this way either. It’s not that she misses Kent, but she feels very unsettled and unsure of herself because of the breakup. Alissa is right that a change will be good for her. She’s already feeling better and looking forward to the trip. She’ll still have a few down moments though. I don’t want to spoil anything! 😉

      Thanks for reading Aliru! Bye! 😀

  4. Aww 🙂 I love that last picture!! Its so cute!!!
    Another great chapter! Thank you!!!!
    Thats a bit odd about Betty though!! Will you explain more or was it just to close that part of the story??

    Looking forward to the next update!! 🙂

    • I’m sorry Megan! I didn’t have time to get on my computer yesterday.

      Thanks! It was hard to find a pose that worked for Sharlee in that picture! 🙂

      You are welcome! I enjoyed doing the pictures in that chapter.

      That was the end of Betty. I wanted to end her part of the storyline. Tom Shallow was responsible for what happened to her. I decided to leave exactly what happened to her a bit of a mystery! 😉

      Thank you Megan! It will be posted on Monday. 🙂

  5. OOOOh yay! More Alissa Family! 😀 Excelent chapter! I’m a hooked fan girl now btw, I have to read every chapter immediately xD Remember the rockstar boy and Cara? PLEAAAAAAAAAAAASE I BEG OF YOU HAVE THEM TOGETHER :3 I’m waiting for it xD

    • Yes, she does have family that she didn’t know about. Crystal didn’t know about them either. We get to meet them in the chapter after next! I’m looking forward to working on that part of the storyline. I just have to finish next week’s pictures! 😉

      Awww, you miss Jared! I’ll just go ahead and tell you guys because you miss him. Cara and Jared do meet again, but it will be a long while before they do. Probably not until after Cara finishes college. Maybe I’ll do a chapter with him and his family soon! Let me know if you’d like a chapter focusing on them, and I’ll write it. 🙂 I still have to do the poll on Crystal’s career so that we can see what her life is like too, but first this storyline with hers and Alissa’s other family. Sorry for the ramble! 😯

      I have a lot of writing to do, but first I need to finish the next Alissa update and the next Mutation update. 😀

      That is so sweet of you to call yourself a fangirl! I’m happy that you like Alissa too! These characters are still my favorites! ♥♥♥

      Thank you so much, Sami! 🙂

    • Marigold, I’m not sure how long she’ll be a toddler. I haven’t decided yet! LOL I do have a storyline after this next one where she will still need to be an infant. 😉

      I hope she is a mix of Noah and Sharlee’s best features! I sooo hope she’s not a Sharlee clone! 😀

  6. WOW!!!
    I can’t believe Trent found Alissa’s grandparents!
    It took me a minute to remember who Betty Simovitch was. LOL
    I really DISLIKE Christain! He just irritates me, I hope he doesn’t cause any problems for Noah and Sharlee in the future.
    I loved that Sky knew when her daddy was upset, that is so CUTE!!!
    Awesome chapter, as usual!

    • Yep, Alissa and Crystal’s grandparents!

      I understand how you forgot about her. I did too! LOL Jacqueline reminded a good while ago that I never said what happened to her, and so I decided to go ahead and end her part of the story.

      You don’t like Christian! 😯 LOL I see why you don’t. There are just some people who are so full of themselves that they just can’t believe that everyone else doesn’t feel the same way about them! He’s like that. Hopefully, he won’t cause any problems. Just remember that Sharlee is nice, but she is also not like Alissa. She speaks her mind. She meant it when she told Christian that they could not be friends. When he brought the gift for Sky, Sharlee wasn’t overly friendly with him. She’s definitely not encouraging his interest in her. If necessary, she’ll tell him again and maybe not as nicely as the first time! She’s not going to let him damage her relationship with Noah. 😉

      Yeah, Sky already has a great connection with her Daddy! 😀

      Thanks Star, and thanks for reading! Next update on Monday! 🙂

  7. Alissa had family she never knew about….wow. Christian had a nerve to show up like that. Noah and Sharlee are ok right? I only ask because of Alissa comment at the beginning. They seem to be especially in the last picture.

    • Yes, her mother wouldn’t talk about her family or even if she still had family living.

      Christian did have a lot of nerve, but he wanted to make sure that Sharlee realizes that he’s still interested in her if her feelings change. He does have a lot of nerve to do that though!

      Noah and Sharlee still have a strong relationship. They are very happy together. We’ll see it even more in the next chapter! 😉

      Thanks for reading, Lucky! 🙂

    • Yep, there were a lot of different emotions in this chapter! LOL

      Thanks Zhip! Alissa is very excited! She’s going to visit them soon.

      Thanks for reading my story! 🙂

  8. Hi, I’m sorry I haven’t been around for a while. In fact, I was surprised at how long it’s been since I last commented.
    I hope you are doing well. I saw some of the comments about family problems and know what it means to be the big sis trying to kick everybody else into shape. However, most of the time they don’t listen and I’ve kind of gave up fooling with them.

    I can’t believe I’ve missed so much, but I’m finally caught up again. Great chapters. I’ve spent the last two days reading up on your chapters.
    First off, what a cute baby and I love the CC that allows legs. I want to download that!
    Also, I’m kind of glad you didn’t go into great detail of Joy’s illness, because I think it would have made me bawl like a baby to have to read something like that. I love that it’s so real life, but I think it would have made my heart hurt. I can’t watch TV movies where kids get sick, it just makes me cry every time.
    I really was hoping for Kent. I think he is a cutie too. I thought later on Cara and him would have some beautiful babies. I do think they are to young to be that serious.
    I don’t think teens should marry or have babies. My sister got married at 14, because she was pregnant, and my parents thought it was the right thing to do. However, I was against it from the start, but they never listen to me. 2 months after she got married she had a miscarriage. And to prove my point that she was to young, 2 days after her miscarriage she was drinking and partying. Anyway, that’s for another story.
    About Sharlee being to big, I was always more of a plus size gal and having my son didn’t help any. I also had him in my late 20’s and losing weight when you are older is a lot harder. However, I only gain 19 lbs with my son, but since then I’ve added another 10 lbs to that. So, losing weight is not easy.
    Also, all of these movie stars can afford personal trainers. Plus, I think it might be easier if you are already skinny to begin with. Of course, I really don’t know. I will say that when my sister actually did have a child, she gained 60 lbs with the first one and 70 with the 2nd one. She lost all the weight from the first one, but the 2nd one she had a harder time, and she had always been like a size 3/4 to begin with. I think it might be easier to lose when your younger too, but I would never suggest young girls or young adults to have kids. Having children is definitely a whole new world.

    Anyway, great updates, I can’t wait to read more. However, I don’t know how often I’ll be back on here in the next month. I hope after New Year’s I can get back into everything. But, truthfully for a little while I was getting a little burn out on sims, but now I’m starting to miss them again.

    I hope you have a great day!

    • I’m doing okay, Jens! I hope you are too! 🙂

      Yeah, it was too hard for me to write about Joy’s illness. It brought up too many bad memories.

      Kent is really good looking and he’s a nice guy. Most girls end up with more than one boyfriend in high school and I thought that Cara should have at least one. Even though it didn’t last long. 😀

      I think it’s best to wait till you’re older to marry, but sometimes it does happen. I definitely don’t advocate teen marriages though! It sounds like your sister had a hard time of it! I hope she’s doing okay now.

      Yeah, weight can vary during our lifetimes. For me, I have to try not to gain too much because of the illnesses that run in my family after weight gain. It definitely was easier when I was younger and could eat whatever I wanted without gaining an ounce!

      Thanks Jens! I know this is a busy time of year! I’ll be busy too! I hope you have a great holiday with your family! 🙂

  9. Woah! Alissa has that much family? I wasn’t expecting that. I’m thinking about starting a sim story, do you have any tips on taking good quality pictures?

    • Yes, it was complete surprise to her! She’ll meet them in the chapter after next. 😉

      I’m definitely not an expert at taking pictures. A lot of the time they don’t come out the way that I want. The only thing that I can suggest is to keep working at them and hopefully you’ll get the shot that you want! 😉

  10. I hate Christian -evil glare- I vow one of these days he’s gonna turn into and alex and mess up their lives =-= I love baby skylar though! She’s so dang cute! :3 I’m glad Noah kept his cool, since he’s a dad now, I was worried… I’ll have to look back to see who the rockstar boys name is, because they were childhood friends c: I didn’t find it but I re read Noah and Sharleees first kiss c: So adorable xD Awesome chapter (:

    • Hopefully, he’ll really leave Sharlee alone now. It’d be bad if she has to tell him off!

      I love Skylar too! I think she’s an adorable little baby. Yeah, Noah kept his temper in check. He doesn’t want to take a chance on doing anything that would hurt Sky or Sharlee.

      Jared was Cara’s first crush. We’ll see him again though! 😉

      Thank you so much, Sami! 🙂

  11. I think this was a great chapter 🙂

    You pumped this chapter out fast! Did you do some writing while you were gone or just work your butt off? LOL 🙂

    Anyways, i think it’s great Alissa has a lot of family. I have a HUGE family, and it’s always nice to see them. But my family is so huge, I don’t know who some of them are!

    I didn’t like Christian when he first came, and I sure don’t like him now. It makes for good drama, but I kinda want Christian to fall into a ditch…

    I understand how Joy doesn’t want her mom to leave. I know I never did when my mom went on business trips. I was never really a “mommy’s or daddy’s girl,” I spent time with both my parents. 🙂

    Skylar is so hacking adorable! I wish I could just reach into my computer and take her with me! LOL I really think she will be an ADORABLE toddler.

    Would you mind if I used Alissa for a story? Not her actually, but Syzu. I don’t want it to seem like I’m copying your stories in any way, I jist really like her character.

    Thanks! 🙂

    • Thank you! I’m glad that you enjoyed it! 🙂

      No, I already had these chapters written, but I do need to do some more writing for both stories. 😉

      Yes, Alissa has a lot of family that she didn’t even know about because of her mother! 😦 I have a large family too, and some of them I don’t remember either!

      You don’t like Christian either! Noah really dislikes him, and if he doesn’t leave her alone, Sharlee will dislike him too!

      I was close to both of my parents too. I think I was a mommy and a daddy’s girl! Is there such a thing as that? 😆

      I completely agree about Skylar! I hope she’ll be a cute toddler too. 😀

      You want to use Syzu? I didn’t make her; but if you don’t mind, I’d rather you didn’t use her. I don’t know why, but it does make me feel a little funny. Maybe because she’s my favorite Sim. That sounds weird, but she sort of favors my Mom. Of course, I can’t stop you from using her though.

      Thanks for reading my story, Jurnee! 🙂

  12. Well done Noah for not losing his temper!! He’s making progress finally 😀 and I’m glad he and Dale are getting along now. I don’t like that Christian came over either. 😐

    I’m so happy for Alissa! She really does deserve to meet her family, and I hope they all get on well and they can start to have a relationship.

    • Yes, he’s really trying hard. Hopefully Dale will really see the changes and their relationship will get even better! 😀

      Christian’s visit wasn’t that good of a move on his part. It’s made Dale see him a bit differently now.

      You’re right that Alissa does deserve to meet her family. Hopefully it will be a good visit for her!

      Thanks for reading my story, Gemly! 🙂

  13. I’m glad you are ok.

    I forgot to say before, Wow, you brought Alex back. I don’t think I saw that coming. I thought the flowers were from someone else.
    Anyway, I hate to see him back, but then again he would make for another good story line.

    Also, I had completely forgot about Betty. So, I’m glad to see her out of the picture.

    I might be back on before then, but if I’m not,
    I hope you have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year’s! 🙂

    • He really wasn’t dead! Some guessed and it was hard not to admit it before I was ready to bring him back! LOL
      Hopefully, this time, he won’t cause problems for Alissa and Dale. Alissa is a stronger more mature woman now, and he might be surprised! She’s not the same wishy washy woman he left behind. 😉

      Yep, no more Betty. 🙂

      I’m not online as much as I used to be either, and this is a busy time of year. Hubby also home more! I completely understand! 😀

      You have a great holiday too, Jen! ♥

  14. Hey!
    I just discovered your story and I’m totes in love with it!!!

    Now awesome time of reviewyness of chapter and questions and commentary (apologies for foul language that is directed towards Christian)

    Wow, does Alissa have some kind of extended family? Anyway it doesn’t matter.
    Also I wasn’t that big of a fan of Cara and Kent or whatever his name is. Where’s Jared at? She hasn’t seen him since the concert! Are they going to get together or not???? Please answer, I’m dying to know!!

    And OMFG Christian!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    At first I thought he wasn’t that bad but he’s is seriously dancing around on my last nerve. When the girl you like is married and has a baby you stay the f*** away from her. Can he not take a hint? No one wants you around go AWAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY! And the fact he has the nerve to come around thinking she still has feelings for him just makes him look like a self centered b****!!!
    Christian: 1) Get a life. 2) Get a hobby 3) Move to the otherside of the world!!!!!

    So glad I got that off my chest but seriously if Christian comes back again I’m going to cut him!!!!!!



    Anywayz great chapter!!

    • Awww, thank you so much, Arielle! I’m glad you love Alissa! 🙂

      I don’t blame you at all for being upset with Christian! He is not being very likable right now.

      Yes, Alissa has family on her mother’s side that she didn’t know existed. I don’t know if you had a chance to read the other chapters, Alissa, but Alissa’s mother was not a good mother at all. She didn’t tell Alissa anything about her grandparents and Alissa didn’t even meet her own father, Matthew Hamming, until after she was an adult. 😦 Alissa hasn’t had an easy life. So she is thrilled to find out about her grandparents! 😀

      You didn’t like Kent? No, his and Cara’s romance didn’t last long at all! She’ll eventually meet Jarad Broke again. 😉

      Christian really, really has you upset! I don’t blame you at all! 😀 He is just refusing to back off! If he doesn’t stop, Sharlee will have to tell him to stay away again. This time, she might not be so nice! She knows that it won’t take much for Noah to snap on Christian again and she doesn’t want to put Noah in that position.

      You’re gonna cut him! LOL That would save Noah a lot of trouble! 😀 Your comment has me laughing! 😆

      Thanks so much for reading my story, Arielle! 🙂

  15. Yay! I’m glad you are doing a storyline with Alissa and her grandparents. I feel like we haven’t really heard anything from her recently. Of course with such a big family it’s hard to do storylines on everyone at once. I think I’m most interested in the Sharlee/Noah storyline and Cara. Cara is so dang gorgeous! Hopefully a trip to France will cheer her up. I know that would make me pretty happy. You always think those high school relationships will last forever! 😦 It’s hard as a teenager. Maybe she will find someone in France or she will get with that Jared guy that everyone keeps mentioning? (I forget who he is actually.) And wow, you could cut the awkwardness with a knife when Christian was there! He is very persistent and not in a good way. One would think that a woman who is married and has a baby would be clearly off limits. 😦

    Glad to hear there’s another Mutation update in the works !!

    Thanks for the great update!

    • Yes, I thought that Alissa should have the chance to get to know her mother’s side of the family too! Especially with what happened to Joy.

      You are so right about it being hard to do the storylines for everyone. Sometimes I forget about different characters! 😦 I know I’ve neglected little Aiden, and I’m going to have to think of something for him soon! I also want to do a couple of chapters of Crystal’s life in her city, and I need to make a poll deciding her career. 😉

      Yeah, I think break-ups are hard at that age. Even if you both agree that it’s the best thing to do! 😦 She’s already feeling better and excited her trip. You mean Jared Broke? She’ll eventually meet him again, but not until she’s older. 😉 Maybe I’ll have their paths cross before that, but they won’t get together while she’s this age. I also need to write something else for Shawn. Maybe not a date, but something for a boy his age too! I am so excited about some of the storylines that I have in mind! I just need more time to get it done. 😀

      I still haven’t started on the next update for Mutation. I was hoping to start today, but my Hubby is home and bothering me! LOL He’s not really bothering me, but I just can’t seem to get on my computer much when he’s home. 🙂 Tomorrow I will definitely start on it!

      You are very welcome! Thank you for reading it! 🙂 ♥

      • Haha I know how that goes with the Hubby. There’s always stuff to do and talk about!

        Yes – I feel like we don’t know too much about Aiden! Shawn too, I know he needed time after the Monet incident (That was her name right?). You have many, many characters to work with now, so hopefully Alissa will continue for a long time! (Hint lol)

  16. Aww, your story always gives such great warm and fuzzy feelings. 🙂

    So proud of Noah for not losing his temper. He really should be secure in his relationship with Sharlee by now. He knows she’s a one woman man! And I’m proud of Dale for being a bit suspicious of Christian. It did seem like he planned his visit for a time that both Dale and Noah were gone. Maybe he wanted to be there during a time he could avoid conflict, but then again maybe he had other reasons.

    Joy, so worried about being away from her mom. I guess being sick and not really understanding would make changes in her behavior. It will be interesting to see how Alissa gets along with her grandparents.

    Lastly, Cara. Maybe she liked Kent more than she thought. Guess we’ll have to wait and see if they get back together.

    Sorry it took so long to comment. Getting Fiendish done sort of became all consuming. 🙂 Hope you are doing well. Wishing your family a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    • Thanks Jaz! I was hoping this part of the story would feel that way! 😀

      Yes, he’s really trying to change for the better. He wants to be a good husband and father. Finally he really believes that Sharlee really loves only him.

      Yeah, Christian may not have had bad motives, but even Dale felt uncomfortable with the way Christian timed it!

      Hopefully, Joy will start to feel secure again. Being sick did effect her. 😦

      Yes, it surprised Cara the way that she felt afterwards. She hadn’t expected to feel so upset. Maybe she’s losing hope that she can have a real relationship. Sometimes when you’re her age, it’s hard to believe that the current relationship won’t be the last one.

      Awww, don’t feel bad about that! I don’t know how you find time to do everything that you do as it is! 😯 I can’t believe that Fiendish is over! I have to get caught up too!

      I hope you and your family have great holidays too, Jaz! ♥♥♥

  17. Wow it seems that I have missed alot. I just had to read this latest chapter while I was able to rob an internet signal. I am so glad the family seems to be on the mend and doing well. Little Skylar is so dang cute! Love the fact that she’s in an outfit. I hope that the girls enjoy the trip to France and that Cara cheers up. I hope maybe Alissa can get some answers about her past and that Joy will heal physically and emotionally. That blasted Christian…I hope he doesn’t have something up his sleeve to spoil things…Betty is dead…good riddance.

    • Don’t feel bad Whitney! It’s a very busy time of year! I hope you had a great time with your family! 🙂

      Isn’t Skylar adorable! 😀

      Yeah, Cara really did need to get away and clear her head. Hopefully the trip is what both she and Joy need.

      Christian doesn’t seem to be letting go of his interest in Sharlee, but maybe he won’t make a pest of himself! 😉

      At least no more Betty for Alissa to worry about. Betty ruined her own life!

      Thanks for reading, Whitney! Hope you have a great holiday! 🙂

  18. Aww Alissa has such a big family that she didn’t know about! I hope the meeting goes well between them.
    I wonder what happened to Betty, I’m glad she’s out of their life now but I wonder if they’ll find out. The plot thickens!
    I’m so glad Noah kept his calm when he saw Christian, I hope he doesn’t become a problem. Skylar is just adorable.
    Fantastic chapter daisies:)

    • Yes, she really does have a large family! It’s sad that she didn’t know it until now.

      Yeah, Betty is totally out of their lives. How she died is a mystery! 😉

      Noah is really fighting to do better at controlling his temper. He knows now that losing his control would hurt his family too.

      I just love that little baby! I think she’s a cutie 😀

      Thank you Clairey and thanks for reading my story! 🙂
