Alissa: Chapter One Hundred and Twenty-Nine

Screenshot-3526Alissa looked into his eyes, and she knew who he was!

Screenshot-3527As he looked down at her, he saw the moment when she recognized him, but he was shocked and disappointed that the fear remained.  She was afraid of him!  Then the fear in her eyes became mixed with fury, and she sat up.

Screenshot-3532“Alex!   How…, where have you been!”

“Keep your voice down, Alissa.  I know this is a shock.  I’ll explain as much as I’m able.” 

He took his mask and gloves off.

Screenshot-3533Alissa’s expression did not soften towards him.   She felt a mix of emotions, but not the relief and joy she’d experienced when she’d seen Dale for the first time after thinking that he’d died.

“I’ve been deep undercover out of the country.   I couldn’t remain in contact with you and the rest of the family for your safety as well as my own.”

“Your father identified your body!”

Screenshot-3534Alex smiled grimly.   “That was a corpse altered to be like me.”

“How could you do that to your family, Alex?   Your mother has not been the same since you…”  Alissa trailed off.

“I believe in the work that I do, Alissa.   In the long run it protects us all.”

Screenshot-3540“That’s not the only reason.  You love the adrenaline rush from the danger, and I suspect that you even enjoy it when you have to take someone’s life!”

Screenshot-3546Alex looked at her in surprise.   She was really speaking her mind!   This was not the same woman he’d left behind.   The years had been good to her.   She had matured, and her beauty was even more enhanced like a fine wine.  When he’d seen her at Joy’s recital, his heart had skipped a beat.  She was even more intriguing and desirable to him now.  

Screenshot-3545Alissa didn’t like the way that he was looking at her.  It made her even more afraid of him.  Emotionally, she was right back to the night when he’d assaulted her.

“Why have you come back?”

Screenshot-3591Dale stirred in bed and noticed that Alissa wasn’t there beside him.   He guessed that she had gone upstairs to check on Joy.   Even though they had a monitor, they both checked on Joy several times throughout the night now that she wasn’t doing as well.   He fell back asleep when he didn’t hear anything from the other monitor set up in Joy’s room.

Screenshot-3655Noah suddenly awakened.   He looked at Sharlee, sleeping deeply beside him.   He still hadn’t lost his street senses that had developed over the years.  It had kept him safe and alive in the past.  He’d seen many who didn’t have it.  They had been assaulted and much worse.   He was glad that he hadn’t lost his.  

Something felt off in the house!   Noah didn’t want to scare Sharlee, and so he slowly eased out of bed.   He went to their bedroom door and locked it from the inside before quietly closing it.   He wanted to make sure that Sharlee was safe before he investigated the rest of the house.  He checked on Sharlee’s brothers and sisters.  Their bedrooms were on the same floor of the house.    They were all sleeping peacefully.  Then he headed silently down the stairs.

Screenshot-3539“I came back because of Joy.  You’ve done a wonderful job with our baby, Alissa.  She’s a beautiful child.”

Finally, Alex saw Alissa’s eyes soften.  

Screenshot-3541“Yes, she is.   When I look at her, I see your eyes looking back at me.”

Alex asked her, “Does she know about me?”

“No, we plan to tell her when she’s older; when she can understand.   So, you know how sick she is?”

“Yes.  Even though I haven’t been here with you, I’ve tried to keep track of what’s been happening with you and Joy.”

“Were you the one who called Dale and told him to get to me after Aria attacked me?”

Screenshot-3547“No, but the agent who I asked to check on you from time to time is the one who called.”

Alex’s mood quickly changed to anger.   “That’s just one of the reasons why I still don’t understand why you chose Dale.   Over and over he’s proven that he can’t keep you safe!”

He calmed himself.   “I saw a video of Joy’s big recital.  She is very talented.  I was pleased to see how much she liked the flowers that I sent.  I’ve come to help her.  I insisted that they bring me back, no matter the danger if it’s discovered that I’m still alive.  I’ve been tested and my marrow is a match.”

Screenshot-3553Alissa began to cry in relief.  Alex wrapped his arm around her to comfort her and just to hold her close again.   His hearing had been specially trained and was keen.  He had already heard when Noah was walking down the stairs.  Now he heard him approaching the door.  He had determined from the sound of the footsteps that it could not be anyone else in the family except for Noah.

“Sounds like Noah has decided to join us.”

Noah opened the door and entered the room.   He saw Alissa crying and Alex holding her.  Screenshot-3554He rushed towards Alex.  

 

Alex stood quickly up, so fast that it startled Alissa.

Screenshot-3555“Stop right now boy or I’ll have to make my little niece a widow!”

“Noah wait!  I’m alright.”

Screenshot-3556Noah and Alex were standing eye to eye. 

Screenshot-3557Alex was surprised when Noah matched his gaze and didn’t flinch.   He knew all about Noah’s background, and he had been astonished that Sharlee had married Noah.  He was even more amazed that Dale and Alissa had allowed the relationship to reach that point.  If he’d been around, he would have put an end to it before it had become serious.

However, now he was wondering if there was more to Noah than he’d thought.   He was impressed with Noah’s complete lack of fear and his immediate reaction to protect Alissa.   Maybe Noah was what his family needed since he was no longer with them.  He had no faith in Dale.  Dale was too restrained and logical.   Noah had a ruthless side that was barely submerged, and Alex sensed that he’d do whatever he had to do in order to protect the people that he cared about.  He was more like Alex!

Screenshot-3559“So, you’re Sharlee’s little man.”   He saw the irritation in Noah’s eyes and grinned.

“Noah, this is Sharlee’s uncle Alex.”

Screenshot-3561Noah frowned as he looked at Alex.   “Mom are you sure you’re alright?”

Screenshot-3563Alissa looked worriedly at Alex.   Noah could tell that she was afraid.

Screenshot-3592Dale awakened again and saw that Alissa had not returned to bed.  There was still no sound on the monitor, but he decided to go and check on Joy himself too.   He opened the bedroom door and headed toward the stairs.  As he did, he saw light coming from the office and realized that Alissa must be in there.

Screenshot-3567Alex looked at the door as Dale walked through it.   Dale looked completely stunned when he saw Alex standing in the room. 

“Alex!”

Screenshot-3566Alissa was glad to see Dale.  She went over to him, and he wrapped his arms around her.  

Screenshot-3570She was trembling and crying, but she told him,  “Alex is here to help Joy, Dale.   His marrow is a match.”

Screenshot-3569Dale felt immediate relief.   There was real hope that Joy would be well again!    Some deep part of him was also relieved to see that his brother was still alive, but he too was angry that Alex had put them through the grief of his death.   Dale was breathing hard.  He was so furious with Alex that he couldn’t speak.

Screenshot-3571“All of the arrangements have been made.   The procedure will be done tomorrow night when things are quiet at the hospital.  Someone will come for Joy tomorrow.   Alissa, you are the only one who can accompany her.”

Screenshot-3574“No, that’s unacceptable.  I’m going with her.”   Dale no longer had any trust in Alex.  Alex might decide to take Joy and Alissa with him and just disappear again.

Screenshot-3573“Other than the people in this room, no one can know that I’m still alive.   The job that I’m doing is too important to be jeopardized, but I had to help Joy.   I had to threaten to quit in order to get my handlers to allow me to return for this short period of time.   I assured them that my real identity would not be disclosed.  My fingerprints have been changed as well as my teeth!  Even during the procedure, my identity will be concealed.  So, yes.  Only Alissa is permitted to go with Joy!”

Screenshot-3575Noah was looking from Dale to Alex.  There was more going on here underneath the surface.   Dale was angry and Alissa was afraid.   Alex was… Noah didn’t have a clear read on Alex yet.

Screenshot-3576“Noah, everything is okay.   Why don’t you go back up to Sharlee and please check on Joy too.”

Screenshot-3577Noah hesitated.   “Are you sure you’re alright, Mom?”

“Yes, I’ll be fine.   You go on back up to bed.”

Screenshot-3578Noah headed to the door, but Alex stopped him.

Screenshot-3579“Remember, Noah!   Don’t tell anyone that I’m alive.   And one more thing.  Welcome to the family!”

After Noah left the room, Alex stood in front of Alissa.

Screenshot-3580“Alissa, I’ve never stopped wearing my wedding ring.  You’ll always be my wife!”

Alissa and Dale looked at him dumbfounded.

“Have you come to your senses yet?”

“Alex, what are you talking about!”

“I mean haven’t you missed me?  Haven’t you missed us?   I haven’t been exactly celibate because I had to do whatever my role requires, but I know that you are the only woman that I will ever love.  I’d quit this job in a heartbeat if you want us to be together again.”

Screenshot-3587Dale was already suspicious.   Whenever Alex helped, there was always a cost, a cost to Alissa.

“Alex, are you saying that you won’t help Joy if Alissa doesn’t  agree to remarry you?”

Screenshot-3581“Of course that’s not what I’m saying!  Joy is my only child.  I’d do anything for her!   Since you mentioned her, I do think that it would be even better for her if she were raised by both of her parents.”

Screenshot-3586“Alex, she is surrounded by people who she knows love her, and she’s happy.  I am happy with my life too!  I’m sorry, Alex, but my feelings haven’t changed and they never will.   I’m in love with Dale, and I’m staying with him!   You and I are never again going to have a romantic relationship!”   Alissa emphasized the word “never!”

Screenshot-3582Alex didn’t speak for a few moments.   He was fighting the anger and disappointment that her words caused inside of him.  Why did she continue to resist her feelings for him!  Then he looked at Dale and was furious at him again for coming back just when he finally had everything he’d wanted.  The years since then had done nothing to lesson his resentment of Dale.

“Someone will come for you and Joy tomorrow evening.”

Screenshot-3584“I’m warning you, Alex.   Don’t do anything to harm Alissa!”

Alex left the house as silently as he’d entered it.   Dale wondered how he’d managed to get past the alarm system.

After checking on Joy, Noah returned to his and Sharlee’s bedroom.   He’d forgotten that he’d locked the door.   He hated to awaken Sharlee, but he didn’t have much choice.   He knocked softly.  

Screenshot-3650Sharlee heard the knock.   “Noah, someone’s knocking at the door.”   When Noah didn’t respond Sharlee reached out and touched his side of the bed.   When she realized he wasn’t there, she got up and opened the bedroom door.

Screenshot-3652She was still half asleep.  “Noah, what are you doing?”

Screenshot-3654“I thought something was wrong, but everything is okay.   Your Mom and Dad are up.  They’re in the office talking.   Let’s go back to bed.

Noah entered the room and closed the door behind him.   Sharlee yawned sleepily and didn’t argue as Noah led her back over to the bed.   As soon as her head hit the pillow, she was asleep again.   It took Noah a little longer, but eventually he fell asleep too.

Screenshot-3588“Alissa, I don’t trust Alex.   Be very careful tomorrow and call me if you need me.   I don’t care what Alex says.”

Screenshot-3589Alissa wrapped her arms around Dale.  “She has a real chance now doesn’t she?”

“Yes, Honey.  The transplant is what she needs!”

They went upstairs to check on Joy, and then to their bedroom.   Alissa had hoped that she’d be able to sleep, but she and Dale were both restless throughout the remainder of the night.  They wouldn’t be able to completely relax until they knew whether or not the transplant had helped Joy.

Screenshot-3598The next morning as they were dressing, Noah watched Sharlee. 

Screenshot-3596He was deep in thought about the night before.   He remembered the fear emanating from Alissa.   He knew that if any man caused as much fear in Sharlee as Alex caused in Mom, that man would not continue breathing for long.   It had nothing to do with anger.  It had everything to do with keeping her safe!   How could Dale not see how afraid Mom was of Alex?   Noah decided to talk with Dale.

Screenshot-3600“Babe, I’ll see you downstairs.   I need to talk with your Dad.”

Screenshot-3599“Okay.   I’ll be down in a little while.”

Screenshot-3639When Noah went downstairs, Dale was in the kitchen helping Alissa make breakfast.

“Dale, can I talk to you for a few minutes?”

Screenshot-3641“Sure.”

Screenshot-3644They went into Dale and Alissa’s bedroom.  Noah got straight to the point.

“I get the impression that there isn’t any love lost between you and Alex.”

“Let’s just say that we’re not as close as we used to be.”

Screenshot-3647“Mom is afraid of him.”

“What’s your point, Noah?”

Screenshot-3646“I’ve come to know Mom well, and she’s a very strong woman.   If she’s afraid of someone, it’s because she has reason to be afraid.”

“I still don’t see what you’re getting at!”

“Alex is already legally dead, so it wouldn’t be breaking any laws to make him really dead.”

Screenshot-3643Dale just looked at Noah for a few moments, wondering if he was joking.   Then he realized that Noah was completely serious.

“We live in a civilized society, Noah, and even if I wanted to do that I wouldn’t because it isn’t the right thing to do.  Believe me, there have been times when I wanted Alex dead and a part of me was relieved when we thought he had died.”

Screenshot-3645“I don’t think I’ll ever understand you!  If anyone was a threat to Sharlee, I’d have no qualms about ending them!”

Screenshot-3648“Whether you understand my reasons or not, Noah, I’m telling you, no!   Stay out of it!  Just forget you ever saw him.  As far as the rest of the family is concerned, we’re telling them that an anonymous donor is helping Joy.”

Noah reluctantly agreed not to do anything.

Screenshot-3631Alex wanted to see Alissa and Joy before the procedure, but his handlers wouldn’t allow him to see them.   They threatened to pull the plug on the whole operation and send him back out of the country if he interacted with Alissa or anyone else from his past again.  Alissa was permitted to sit with Joy until they took her away.   She was nervous as she waited.  Even after the procedure, Joy would have to remain in the hospital for the next 30 days.  Alissa intended to be there with her as much of that time as possible.

Alissa was told that the procedure would take from 30 minutes to an hour.   After waiting for about an hour and a half with no word on Joy’s condition, Alissa was becoming extremely anxious.   Finally a nurse entered the room.   “Mrs. Stallworth, does Joy have any allergies that weren’t disclosed to the anesthesiologist?  We’re having a hard time waking her up.”

Screenshot-3632“No, she has to wake up!  She doesn’t have any allergies.  Please let me see her!”

Screenshot-3633The anesthesiologist came into the room.   “Joy’s alright Mrs. Stallworth.  It just took longer for her to respond.  She’s coming out of it now.  You’ll be able to see her soon.  The procedure went smoothly, and the doctor will be in to talk with you in a few more minutes.”

Screenshot-3635Alissa let out the breath that she hadn’t realized that she was holding inside.   “Thank you and is the donor alright as well?”

Screenshot-3638“Yes, Mam.  The donor is fine.”

They both left the waiting room, and Alissa called Dale and told him so that he could pass on the good news to the rest of the family.

Alex left the country after he recovered.   He was happy that he’d been able to help Joy, but he still felt that things were unfinished between him and Alissa.   He would never accept that she no longer loved him.

 

__________________________________________

You all were right!  It was Alex!  I had a hard time not saying it in the comments.   I sort of left a little hint just before his family thought that he was dead.   It was that mysterious phone call that he made right after his fight with Dale!   😀

Do you have any suggestions on a career for Crystal?   Something that suits her personality?   She finished college, and she’s been working for a long time now.  I just never decided what her job is.    I am stuck!    😦

  1. This chapter gives me so many emotions! I knew it was Alex, who else has that eyecolor?

    For Crystal, i think she should be an artist, or maybe a writer. She could write about Alissa and their family 🙂
    I’m so glad Noah and Dale came to Alissa’s rescue! It could’ve been veryyyy bad… 0_o

    Noah called her Mom! Eeek! *fangirl squeal* Sharlee’s baby bump! So cute! 😀 *another fangirl squeal* (sorry, i’m overtired. This math homework is killing me! -_- i needed a break, so i read my favorite sims 3 story!)

    I want to reach into my screen and wring Alex’s neck! How dare he think Alissa is still in love with him!(I’m not this violent when i’ve had sleep in the last eigheen hours…. -_- moving on)

    Before i crash sitting at my desk, i’m gonna go to bed. Great chapter, regardless! 😀 Talk to you tomorrow Daisy 🙂

    • You guessed right! It was him! 😀

      Alissa used to write. I hadn’t thought of making Crystal a writer. Crystal and Alissa’s mother was a singer at one time. Cara is going to be a photographer. So artist does sound good. I think I see another poll ahead! 😀 What about an architectural graphic artist?

      Noah does see Alissa as his Mom now. Especially with how comforting she was with him at the hospital after he hurt Sharlee. She sees him as her son now too! 😀
      Sharlee is so cute with her baby bump! 😀

      Awww, thank you Jurnee! 🙂 I hope the rest of the homework goes quickly!

      Yeah, Alex still isn’t thinking right when it comes to Alissa. 😦

      You sleep well! Thanks for reading! 😀

      • I think a career in Fine Arts will suit Crystal well. I actually thought about architect, but i wasn’t sure. I’ve actually wanted to ne an architect or engineer since i was in middle school 🙂

        They have a great family! No matter what they do, they will stay together as one 🙂 That’s so sweet! 😀

        I can’t wait for Skylar to be born! I hope she has her mom’s hair and her dad’s eyes, or vice versa.

        It’s true! Of course I like other stories, but this is the longest and the one that actually got me into the sims 3. I enjoy it and i hope to make one of my stories this long, but a different storyline. 🙂

        I actually just finished! Who gives homework on a Monday? Apparently my math teacher -_-

        Alex has gone insane! I wish he would take a hint. (I actually somewhat liked him when he backed off in the first chapters. Now: no bweno. That’s not how you spell it, is it? Lol 🙂

        I think i’m going to bed now! Enjoy your night 🙂

      • Jurnee, I’m sorry I’m so late responding. I haven’t been feeling well.

        Fine Arts does seem like a degree that would interest Crystal!

        Their family really does care a lot about each other. So far, they have been able to remain close. Hopefully it will stay that way for them.

        I’m excited about Skylar too! It won’t be much longer. 😀

        I hope you do start your own story too!

        You have one of those conscientious teachers. I seemed to always get ones like that too! LOL

        Did you mean “bueno?” You were close! 😀 Yeah, Alex really changed. His personality and reasoning changed over time. When it comes to Alissa, he just isn’t reasonable. 😦

        I hope you had a good night!

        Thanks for reading my story, Jurnee! 🙂

  2. I like Noah, he’s like a more uninhibited Dale. And i love sharlee’s baby bump! geez, I hope I’m that cute when it’s time to have kids.

    We were right about Alex! Surprise surprise 😛 I’m glad he didn’t make his help contingent on Alissa leaving Dale. Either way, I still hate him with the hot passion of a thousand burning suns lol. He does “heroic” things but only because he’s a selfish jerk.

    I can’t think of anything for Crystal! I keep thinking maybe something similar to journalism just because she was close to Miki (Was that her name?)

    Glad to see the Joy storyline wrap up and know that everything is okay!

    • You’re right! Too bad Dale doesn’t see that. 😦

      Isn’t Sharlee so cute! 😀 I’ll have more pictures of her in the next chapter. My doggone game crashed in the middle of taking those pictures, and it would have taken too long to set up that scene again. 😡

      Alissa is in television journalism. 😀 Miki is a writer. She writes television and movie scripts. I had forgotten about that! 😯

      Yeah, I couldn’t kill Joy off. Honestly though, I had planned for her to die, but I just couldn’t do it! She is just too sweet of a little girl.

      Thanks for reading my story, Sarah! 🙂

  3. Ciao, finally this chapter posted, you know i am crazy waiting for this chapter.

    Like i guess before, he is Alex, he totally a terorist for dale’s family, why people love someone crazily? so happy when Noah knew that Alex came, i hope Noah can protect Alissa.

    Come on Dale, you have to open your eyes before alex take alissa again.

    Daisies, can you post the next chapter earlier?

    • I seem to stay behind! LOL Sorry to make you have to wait so long, Anita!

      Yep, it was Alex. I hadn’t thought of him as being like a terrorist, but you’re right! 😯
      Hopefully, Alex won’t hurt Alissa again. Dale does need to see things more clearly. Especially when it comes to Alex. Noah might have been right to suggest getting rid of Alex. 😦

      Earlier? I haven’t been feeling well, but I’ll start working on it tomorrow. I’d planned to do pictures for my other story this week, but I didn’t feel well enough to work on it. So I guess I’ll do Alissa’s pictures first. 😀

      Thanks for reading my story, Anita and I’m sorry that I’m so late responding! 🙂

      • What is your other stories daisy? I have read all of your stories, messa valley chronicles, endures love, mutation, deceived.

        FYI, i am so addicted with your stories, LoL

        I wonder how old you are, you are so talented. You know, i am jealous with you.

        When i was young, actually i am not as young as ten years ago, hihi, i wrote a lot of stories, but recently, i dont have enough time to write a story again. And your stories are better than mine. You made the stories looked real with a lot of good pictures. Your sims have very good appearances. And i love Alissa so much, and i love dale’s new hair.

        Back to topic, i think that crystal is good in art or fashion. She can follow Mattew by becomingan actress or opening her own clothing line as a fashion designer.

      • I think you’ve read all of the ones that I’ve posted! 😯 I’m honored that you enjoy my writing so much! 🙂 The only one that you don’t have listed is “The Savage Hunt”. That’s a medieval, sort of scary story, inspired by the fairy tale Rapunzel. http://11daisies4.wordpress.com/

        I’m probably old enough to be your mother or at the very least your aunt! LOL

        Yeah, I really understand about being busy. Real life can sometimes get in the way! 😀 Sometimes it’s hard to find the time to write like I want to do. I think we always feel that other writer’s stories are better than ours. I bet I’d feel the same way about yours! I have fun doing the pictures if I can get them the way that I see the scenes in my mind. Sometimes they don’t always turn out how I want them to though.

        Thanks Anita! Dale and Alissa have good genes! For some reason, I just wanted to change Dale’s look a little bit. I want to change Noah’s too, but I don’t want him to lose his bad boy, edgy look. I haven’t found the right hairstyle for him yet.

        Art and fashion do seem to be something that would interest Crystal! You have some good suggestions too! 😀

        Thanks for reading my stories, Anita! 🙂

  4. No I don’t want Alex back 😡 but I’m so glad he helped Joy.
    You could never have killed her off she’s just too cute!
    I like Noah, he has a good sense to protect people he loves
    Sharlee is so cute when she’s pregnant!!!

    Thank you for writing another awesome chapter to make up for the cliff hanger you left is all on 🙂 😉

    • You don’t want Alex back? 😯 LOL Alissa and Dale feel the same way about it. 🙂

      Yeah, little Joy was just too cute. I couldn’t do it! 😀

      Noah doesn’t hesitate when it comes to protecting them. You are so right, Megan!

      She really does look cute doesn’t she! 😀 I’ll have more pictures of her in the next chapter.

      Awww. thanks Megan and you are very welcome! 🙂

  5. Sharlee looked so cute with her baby bump. I’m glad Noah is always so protective of his family.
    I am totally have mixed feelings about Alex coming back…He better NOT hurt Alissa.
    I am just so glad that Joy will be okay. 🙂
    I don’t think Alex looks good with blonde hair.
    Can’t wait for the next chapter!!!

    • I was having so much fun taking pictures of her with her before my game crashed for the third time! LOL I’ll put more of her in the next chapter. 🙂

      I don’t blame you for having mixed feelings about Alex. His past behavior with Alissa has not been good!

      Yes, the procedure went well. She’ll come home in the next chapter. 😀

      You don’t like his blond hair? I really don’t either. LOL I prefer him as a brunette too, but I thought that I should do something to change his appearance a little.

      Thanks Star, and thanks for reading my story! 🙂

      • I think Crystal should helped other drug addicts.
        I think that would be a really good job for her since she overcame her addiction.

      • By the way when will the next chapter for Mutation be posted? It has a VERY long time since you posted a new chapter!

      • You are so right, Star! I was supposed to update it this past week, but I never got a chance to do the pictures. I’m sorry! 😦

        I’m finishing pictures for Alissa over the next couple of days and then I really, really promise to update Mutation! 😉

        I feel so bad for making everyone who’s reading it wait for such a long time. 😦

  6. Haha, Sorry, but i wont comment this chapter! If i will it would be bigger than all of the chapters in one! ;D I just will say a word.. A-W-E-S-O-M-E!!!!!!!! Im glad that Joy is going to be fine! And anout Crystals carrer.. I think she should be some model.. or clothing designer.. She could buy a shop and sell her clothes ;D And then go famous.. Yano.. Or she could even join the next Topmodel! Would be fun, x].. Thank you for writing thoose amazing chapters and make me happy!

    Love from Love, Bai bai! ;D

    • LOL Jandelea! 🙂

      That is such a nice thing to say! 😀 Thank you, Jandelea! 🙂

      At least Alex was able to help Joy.

      So you think fashion model? I hadn’t thought about that type of career. 🙂

      You’re welcome, Jandelea! I’m glad that reading Alissa makes you happy like writing it does for me! 😀

      Thanks for reading my story!

  7. hi we haven’t talked in ages!!!Anyhoo guess what my baby was born a few weeks ago yippee :·D

    I named her sharlee like i said i would!She’s sooooooo cute anyhoo (thats my fav word now LOL) instead of boasting i want to tell you what i think about this chapter!It was FAB-U-LOUS!!!To be honest im quite stupid and i didn’t know it was alex LOL!!! gtg gotta take care of my baby bye!! xxx

    • Yay! Congratulations, Simlover! I bet she’s beautiful! 😀

      I’m so happy for you!

      Thanks! Awww, don’t feel stupid. The chapter where he made that phone call was a long time ago!

      You take care of yourself and your little Sharlee! 😀

      Thanks for reading! 🙂

  8. I want to jump through the screen and hug Alex. Then shoot him in the head. Then stab him repeatedly. I am so glad he loved Joy enough to do the transplant, and that he didn’t ask for anything in return, but I just hate him even more for putting his job before his family. His “death” really messed things up, and his reappearance will probably just make things worse.
    As for Crystal, she should defiantly be a stylist and open her own clothing store! She should get a job where she’s the boss, because I don’t think she would respond well to being commanded around.

    • Zoe! 😯 I definitely understand your mixed feeling for Alex! LOL Alissa has those same types of feeling for him too! 😀

      Yeah, he was putting his job first. I guess he was hoping that Alissa would miss him so much that she’d be happy to see him again the same as she was when Dale came back. That maybe she would be ready to go back to him, but that was a delusional belief. Alissa can’t make her feelings any plainer to him than she has. He just refuses to accept it! 😦 Hopefully his reappearance won’t cause any more problems. 😦

      Stylist! That’s what Miki’s boyfriend Jamal does! That might would be good for Crystal too. Yeah, I agree. I don’t think she’d take commands very well! 😀

      Thanks for reading my story, Zoe! 🙂

  9. I really have no idea what to say at this apart from Sharlee bump is dead cute and i love the way noah protects his family.
    *Shocked moment* ALEX IS BACK!?

    • Isn’t she sweet with that baby bump! 😀

      Yes, Noah will do anything to protect them. I love that about him too! 😀

      He’s still alive! Hopefully, it won’t be a bad thing for his family.

      Thanks for reading my story, Naimh! 🙂

  10. OMG!!! Thank goodness, I was afraid that these might be old and you’d never finish 🙂 I was so bored and looking at stories and found this…. NOW I’M HOOKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Your ideas are amazing and have kept me on the edge of my seat! I’m so excited about sharlee’s baby! I’ve predicted like half of the story! xD I didn’t see alex coming though… For a second I was like… OMG DID MARCUS COME BACK TO LIFE?????? DDDDDD: ” Then it was alex… I don’t trust him.. I don’t think he’ll stay away! Your an amazing writer btw, ever considered being a novelist????? I love writing and you’ve become my idol! 😀 Your AMAZING at it! I’m so glad you put little happy moments in between the sad or otherwise I would’ve already punched my screen…. xD

    Thank you for writing this! its super amazing to see a story like this grow!!! 😀 (I just realized that my user name is sarcastic… not a joke btw… Seriously amazing (: )

    • Hi Sami! No, I’m still posting new updates. 😀

      I’m happy that you’re hooked now too! That is such a sweet thing to say! 🙂

      Yep, it was Alex! I wouldn’t trust him either. Like Dale said, he usually expects something from Alissa in return. Hopefully, it won’t be that way this time because Joy is his daughter!

      Awww, thanks Sami. No, I just write for fun. 😀

      Your idol! 😯 No one’s ever said that before. I wish my writing was really good enough for that, but I’m glad that you’re enjoying it! 🙂

      I like your user name! 😀 It’s different.

      Thank you very much for saying that and thanks for reading my story, Sami! 🙂

  11. Also, on another topic more related top the chapter…

    a. OMG!!! I’M GONNA DIE BEFORE SHARLEE HAS HER BABY!!! I’VE BEEN WAITING SO LONG!!! What will the baby’s name be if its a boy??? I really hope the baby has Noahs hair and sharlees eyes!!!!!!

    b. NOAH! HES AMAZING!!! I feel like him not going to his therapy sessions is A hint… I hope not!!!!! Him and sharlee make the cutest couple! 😀

    c. Joy!!!! I’m so amazed at how you handled that part of the story!!! amazing plot twist! :O For a second I was like.. what??? o.0 At first I thought it was dale or noah (I not very good at predictions… xD ) Then I saw the face.. still couldn’t figure it out…. I’d forgotten what alex looked like!

    • I put up a poll a few chapters back. She’s going to have a little girl named, Skylar! 😀
      I can’t wait to see what the baby looks like too!

      Isn’t Noah amazing! He’s going to start back going to therapy, at least for a while longer. He really loves Sharlee and cares about her family now too. They are one of my favorite couples!

      Thank you! It was a bit harder for me to write about her leukemia than I thought it would be though.
      Don’t feel bad about not recognizing Alex. It has been a long time since we last saw him! 🙂

      Thanks again for reading, Sami! 🙂

  12. Crystal should be a high school counselor because she went through such a rough time as a teen. She could really relate to those kids.

    • You’re right, Drew. She has been through a lot, and just like she related so well with Noah, she would be able to relate to other children. Another good suggestion! 🙂

  13. I’m so excited Alex is back! I was so sad when he died, and even if he isn’t going to be returning in full capacity, to know he can pop in from time to time is great. I hadn’t realized how much Noah is like Alex until you pointed that out, but it’s so true. Noah has everything Alex ever wanted because Sharlee actually loves him back. Poor Alex! 😦

    It wasn’t very nice of the doctors to alarm Alissa and Dale about Joy not waking up fast enough. Clearly they could have waited a few more minutes and not given her parents a few grey hairs! It’s great that she and Alex are both fine, although I do wonder how Noah and Sharlee will fare if she ever finds out Noah knew Alex was alive and said nothing to her.

    How have Shawn and Cara and Aiden been? We haven’t seen much of them in awhile and I’d love to know what’s going on in their lives. Are either of the teens going to college soon?

    As for Crystal, I love the suggestion Drew made of her being a school counselor. She seems like she’d be good at that. She could also be a policewoman or work for a fashion company.

    • Yes, I was sad too for his family. Despite how he’s treated Alissa, I still can’t help but like some things about him. And you made me feel sad for him too! I hadn’t thought about how it really is sad that Alissa does love him!

      The doctors definitely should have handled that better!

      Sharlee would probably be upset that Noah kept that from her. No matter how he tries to explain why he didn’t tell her about Alex. 😦

      I need to do some writing for the other members of the family again. I was writing about Crystal, but got stuck on her career. It’s a big part of my storyline for her. 😦
      It’s still a while before the teens go to college, but they will definitely be going. I already have storylines for their college time! 😀

      Those are such good suggestions too! I’ll put a poll at the end of the next chapter.

      Do you want me to call you, Beachbear or your real name? It’s a cute screen name! I really like it! 😀

      Thanks for reading my story! 🙂

      • Thanks Maddie! I really do like your new screen name, and I agree that it’s best to be safe. That was part of the deal with my hubby when I started doing all of my sims stuff. I agreed not to use my personal info. He’s sort of paranoid about stuff like that. That’s why I use Daisies Day and not my real name too! Better safe that sorry! 🙂

  14. AWESOME CHAPTER..i knew it was Alex. I actually knew something was up with his death. He just died so suddenly.

    A name for Sharlee and Noah’s baby girl should be Millie *wink, wink*

    Can’t wait for the next chapter. When will it be out???

    • Thank you Millie! 🙂

      It was a very sudden death. 😉 He felt like it was a good time to take the new job opportunity that the agency had offered him.

      Millie would have been a good name! 🙂 Skylar won in the poll. 😀

      I’m hoping to post the new chapter on Monday. I’m starting the pictures today. 😀

      Thanks for reading, Millie! 🙂

  15. Hi it’s me sorry I haven’t talked for ages school really hard thinking about at almost makes me so tired and pass out I couldn’t find you on facebook

    Great chapter but one thing I’m gonaa to tell I was reading another sim 3 story until you make the next chapter and just got carried away and one thing Alex makes me feel so angry like this grrrrrrr
    And when his mother said : it’s all your fault expert ones wear a bullet prof vest always . She always glares at her poor Alissa I wander what his mother is gona do about at I say maybe hug him and make his face hit hard by her slips and sorry again for not talking for ages please make the chapter soon and thinks for giving us the best sims 3 story ever !!!! Oh and almost forget I’m making a sims 3 story it’s about a zombie outbreak please could some one makes me a zombie town any thing but not using supernatural expensive pack

    • I tried to find you too on facebook! I’m Daisies Day. I hope school gets easier! 🙂

      Alex is maddening! His mother was so wrong to blame Alissa. 😦 He can’t let his mother know that he’s still alive. He only let Alissa and Dale know because he wanted to help Joy. He also wanted to meet Noah.

      Thanks Simer! I know it’s not the best story, but I’m glad you’re enjoying reading it! 🙂 I hope to post the next chapter on Monday. 😀
      I love Zombie stories and movies! If you go to the sims 3 website under the creative corner, you can find groups who make lots and sims for others who need them. That’s how I got the vets office in my story, Mutation and Noah’s dealership. They were both made for me over a year ago! 😯 Wow I had these storylines in my head for a long time! LOL

      Thanks for reading, Simer! 🙂

  16. I was just going to ask if the next chapter was going to include more sharlee, I absolutely LOVE her baby bump and I would love if everyone got the chance to feel skylar kick 🙂 gr8 chapter!!

  17. Well. I didn’t expect Alex! I guess i didn’t give it much thought, as I could move right on to the next chapter. I wasn’t certain he was dead, though, people never seem to be what you think in your stories 😉

    Wow at Noah suggesting they kill Alex! Uh… I don’t think he realises that the government agency he woks for would have something to say about that. Haha! I think he needs to get back to regular sessions with Sarge, but it was sweet the way he checked on everyone when he sense something was wrong. I do love him. *swoon* lol

    • Yes, it was him! He wasn’t really did after all! LOL 😉

      It seemed like something that Noah would think of doing! Noah doesn’t really have any respect for the authorities, and so I don’t think that he would care about those type of consequences. Maybe after his baby is born, he’ll start to think things through more before he acts. He still has a lot of maturing to do as we’ll see in the next chapter. 😦
      He misses too many sessions with Sarge. I love him too! 😀

      Thanks for reading, Gemly! 🙂

  18. That was a crazy scene. Alex went and changed everything about himself to stay hidden. It’s sort of good that he came back to help. Noah was too funny wanting to off Alex. I can see why he would want to. Dale is a mushy guy, yes. But he has a mean streak in him that I have seen a few times too. The family is pretty safe with Noah around. Hopefully Joy’s procedure is good and she is cured.

    • Yeah, it was a strange thing for Alissa!

      I thought that would be the type of solution that Noah would think up! LOL You are right about Dale too. He is mushy but he can be hard too! He just tries to always remember the effects of his actions on his family. He really listened to his father’s advice.

      Alex thinks it’s good that Noah is around now too! 😉 Maybe he will stay away for a few more years now.

  19. It was Alex! I knew he wasn’t dead, I can’t believe he came back and expected Alissa to still love him! I’m glad he was a match for Joy, I’m keeping my fingers crossed that she makes a full recovery.
    Noah’s great it’s so nice that he’s so protective of everyone 🙂

    • LOL You were right! 😀

      When it comes to Alissa, he just refuses to believe that she doesn’t want him anymore.

      Noah is really great and you’re right that he’s very protective too!

      Thanks for reading, Clairey! 🙂

  20. I knew it was Alex in that mask! Why you gotta kill my happiness? I wanted him to be dead!! But I’m glad Joy is better now. I would cry if she would have died.
