Alissa: Chapter One Hundred and Twenty

Screenshot-2102Noah was sitting in the office of Terry Collins at the Harley Davidson headquarters for their region.  It was a two hour drive from Santa Fe.

“Mr. Hall, I saw on the form that you completed that you are twenty years old.  Is that correct?”

Screenshot-2107“Yes, Sir.”

Screenshot-2105“Hmm, that is much, much younger than our typical franchise owners.  However, you said that your father-in-law is going to back you financially?”

Screenshot-2112“Yes Sir.  He will be my partner initially.  Once the business is doing well, I intend to buy him out.”

Screenshot-2114Mr. Collins sat silently for a few moments studying Noah’s face, as though trying to reach a decision about him.  There was a knock at the door and another gentleman entered the room.

Screenshot-2116“I’m sorry to interrupt Terry, but I need your signature on this report before I can submit it.”

“That’s okay Gene.  Excuse me just a moment Mr.  Hall.  This won’t take long.”  He started to look over the papers.

Screenshot-2126Noah’s mind wandered to Sharlee, hoping that she was okay.   He’d hated to go out of town while she was still on bed rest, but he’d needed to attend this meeting.  He also knew that her family would take good care of her. 

Screenshot-2125Noah noticed that Gene was staring at him.  When Noah looked at him, Gene looked down at the desk.   After Mr. Collins finished signing the papers, Gene took them and left the room.

Screenshot-2129However, he left the door to the office open.   Several people stopped in the doorway and pointedly looked at Noah, both males and females.   Noah was beginning to feel very uncomfortable.   Then another person came to the door and asked to speak with Mr. Collins outside.   Mr. Collins excused himself and left the office.  He was gone for about fifteen minutes, and Noah wondered what was going on. 

Screenshot-2130He returned to the office along with Gene.

“I’m sorry about that Mr. Hall.   However, Gene has a proposition for you.”

“May I call you Noah?”

“Yes of course.”

“Do you know how long the Harley Davidson company has been in business?”

Noah had researched the company and was very prepared.  “The company was started in 1903.  So it’s been in operation for 110 years.”

Screenshot-2131“That’s exactly right.  We are mostly known for our motorcycles, but we are expanding to other things.  In order to do that, we need to increase our customer base, appeal to a wider audience.”  He sighed.

Noah was wondering what this had to do with him.

Gene continued speaking.   “Right now the average age of the Harley owner is in his fifties.  We have to draw in a younger customer base.   That’s where you come in.   We need a new face of Harley.  You have the look that we want.  We want someone who will appeal to younger men and women.”

Screenshot-2132Noah looked at him in shock.  He said indignantly.   “I’m not some pretty boy model afraid to get his hands dirty!”

Mr. Collins laughed.  That was the reaction that he’d expected from Noah.  He spoke up.

Screenshot-2133“That is what I thought you’d say, Noah.  When we say the new face of Harley, it will involve more than just pictures and commercials.   I’ve looked over the data that you’ve provided as well as ours here.  Santa Fe is an excellent location for another franchise.  The business will eventually be yours, but you will also have to agree to do commercials and pictures for us as our company spokesman.   The whole point will be that someone young and attractive is not only a Harley Davidson owner, but also running a successful Harley franchise.  So you will definitely have an opportunity to get your hands dirty working at the dealership.”

Noah’s mind was racing.  He hadn’t expected this.   He’d be able to have the business without taking Dale’s money.   The company itself would back him.  Of course he’d have to pay them franchise fees, but it’d be better than owing Dale.  However, he hated the modeling aspect of it.  Whether they called him a spokesman or not, it was really modeling.

“Of course, we don’t expect your answer right now.   We’ll prepare a written proposal for you to consider with your attorney.”

Screenshot-2136Gene added.  “Also think about the fringe benefits.  A single guy with your looks will have the women lining up, and we’ll get gorgeous models to pose with you.   Then all the guys will want to be just like you.   The bikes and clothing will sell like hotcakes!”

Screenshot-2140“Single guy!  I’m happily married and not looking for anyone else.”

Screenshot-2137Gene hadn’t realized that Noah was married.   His mind started considering the other possibilities.   Maybe they could sell the Harley lifestyle to couples and families as well.   He was sure that Noah’s wife had to be a knockout with the way that he spoke about his marriage.

“Do you have a picture of your wife?”

Noah hesitated.   “Yes.”

He pulled out his wallet and handed a picture to Gene.   Gene’s eyes opened wide.   Yeah, Noah’s wife was gorgeous and really sexy.  He showed the picture to Terry.   He had the same reaction.

“Wow, she’s a knockout Noah!”

Screenshot-2149Noah reached for the picture.   “Yeah, she is.”

Gene didn’t immediately give it to him.   “May I make a copy of it?”

Noah frowned.  “No, I’d like it back now.”

Gene handed it back to him, and Noah returned it to his wallet.

Screenshot-2144“We’d like to include her in the campaign.   As I said we want to widen our customer base.   I think that she too would help us to do that.   We’ll work out all of the details, but I can promise you that we would make sure that you are both well compensated for the spokesperson duties as well as the money that you would earn from a successful franchise.”

Screenshot-2147“My wife is pregnant, and she won’t be able to work during her pregnancy.”

Again Gene saw dollar signs.   “How far along is she?”

“She’s three months.”

Gene looked at Terry.   “We could follow her pregnancy in our commercials and ads!   The public would love that.  Harley! Not just for wild boys but for families!”

“No, Sharlee can’t be on her feet for long periods of time.”

Screenshot-2148“We can work within the restrictions of her pregnancy.   Please just think about it Noah.  Give us an opportunity to put together an offer that you can’t refuse.   Talk with, did you say Sharlee?”

“Yes, her name is Sharlee.”

Screenshot-2145Terry said, “Well why don’t you talk it over with her and with your father-in-law.   We have a seminar coming up in two weeks for those who are about to open new franchises.   It will be at a resort in Isla Paradiso.  We’d love for you to join us there as our guest.  It will last for three days and you’re welcome to remain the weekend at our expense.  The marketing department will have the offer ready to present to you then.”

Screenshot-2141Noah didn’t want to leave Sharlee for that long.  “Thank you, but I can’t leave my wife for that long.”

Screenshot-2146“Bring her with you.  She’ll be our guest too.  It will give us an opportunity to meet her.  Of course, we do have some entertainment scheduled that is geared more towards guys, but the morning of the first day, she is welcome to attend.  The other days we can arrange for her to do some sightseeing or shopping.  We’ll pay for all of your meals and your hotel suite.  We’ll also pay for your flights.”

Screenshot-2150Noah thought to himself, “Wow, they must really want me to do this!”

“Alright, thank you.  We’ll be there.”

Screenshot-2151Terry said enthusiastically, “Good!   I’ll have someone call you tomorrow morning to finalize the arrangements for the trip.”  He held out his hand.  “It’s been a pleasure Noah, and I hope that you’ll agree to do business with us.  It will be very lucrative for you and your family as well as for Harley Davidson.”

Noah shook his hand.   “Thank you for the offer.”

Then he left the office and headed home.

Screenshot-2152Sharlee was in their bedroom when Noah got home.   She was so tired of taking it easy.  She started to rush to Noah when he entered the room and then caught herself.  She waited for him to come over to her and hug and kiss her.

He’d decided to talk with Dale before he talked with Sharlee about the offer.  The less for her to worry about the better.

Screenshot-2154Noah gently rubbed her belly.   The bandages were gone now.

“How are you and our little one doing?”

Screenshot-2153“We’re fine.  How did things go today?”

“Alright.”

He didn’t elaborate and Sharlee didn’t ask anymore questions. 

Screenshot-2198Joy and Shawn were home from school and raced into the room.

“Sharlee, I got an A on my science project!”

“Yeah, and the teacher said that he can enter it into the science fair.”

Screenshot-2197“Thanks for helping me with it, Sharlee!”

Screenshot-2201“I’m so proud of you, Aiden.  You did it yourself.  I just gave a few suggestions.”

Screenshot-2199“Babe, I need to talk with your Dad.  I’ll be back up later.”

“Okay.”

Sharlee smiled as she listened to her little brother and sister chatter away.   She hadn’t realized how much she’d missed them.

Dale was in the livingroom reading and Alissa was cooking dinner when Noah went downstairs.  “Mr. Stallworth, may I speak with you privately?”

“Of course.  Let’s go into the office.”

Noah told him about his meeting and the offer that Harley Davidson had made.

Screenshot-2159“Well, I think you’re right not to jump at their offer.   I’d suggest that you don’t sign anything when you go that seminar.  Why don’t you let me and my business manager and lawyer look over the offer and any contracts.”

Dale frowned.   “So they want Sharlee too.   You’re going to have to make sure that special provisions are made in any contract for the considerations that she will need due to her pregnancy.   As a matter of fact I think that you should have an agent looking out for your interests in that part of the deal.   I’m sure Alissa’s agent would be happy to represent you and Sharlee as well.”

Screenshot-2161“Thank you Mr. Stallworth.  You don’t know how much I appreciate everything that you are doing for us.”

Screenshot-2158“Sharlee is my daughter, and you are my son-in-law.   We may not be each others favorite people, but we’re family.   Neither one of us would be comfortable with you calling me Dad, but how about if you call me Dale.”

Screenshot-2155Noah had started calling Alissa, Mom, but Dale was right that Noah would not feel comfortable calling him Dad.  However,  he could call him Dale.

“Alright,  that sounds good.”

Screenshot-2163Dinner was ready when they left the office, and so Noah took dinner upstairs for himself and for Sharlee.

She was quiet as they ate.   She finally pushed her tray aside.

Screenshot-2165Noah saw tears in her eyes and placed their trays on the floor.   He pulled her to him.

“What is it Honey?”

Screenshot-2169Sharlee was trying to hold the tears back, but then they began to flow.   Noah just let her cry until she finally stopped.

Screenshot-2170He gently took her chin in his fingers and looked at her face.   “What’s wrong, Babe?”

Sharlee looked at him and said,  “Nothing is wrong.  I just suddenly felt like crying, but I’m fine now.”   She was smiling as though nothing had happened.  Noah looked at her in amazement and realized that it must be a mood swing caused by her pregnancy.   He had read up on what to expect, but he still had a lot to learn.  

Screenshot-2175He pulled her closer and kissed her lips softly. 

Screenshot-2178Then he told her about Harley Davidson’s offer and the arrangements that he would insist be made for consideration of her condition.  He also told her about the advice that Dale had given him.

Screenshot-2177Sharlee knew Noah and that he wouldn’t like the spokesman part of the offer.  She herself wasn’t crazy about doing it either.   However,  having his own Harley Davidson dealership was a dream of Noah’s.   This was an awesome opportunity for him.   Especially as young as he was.  

“Noah, if you want to do it, then so do I.”

Screenshot-2185“Babe are you sure?”

“Yes, I’m sure.  If the terms work out, and you decide that it’s right for us, yes I want to do it.”

Screenshot-2176Noah hugged her.   “Alright, we’ll go to the seminar and see what they’re offering.   Even if the deal doesn’t work out, it will be a nice trip for us.  We’ll have to talk with your doctor to find out what provisions we’ll need to tell them to include in the contract.  I’m not taking a chance on your health or the baby’s health.”

Even though it was a wonderful opportunity for him, Sharlee had misgivings. However, she didn’t say anything to Noah.  She wasn’t worried about herself, but she hoped that he would not be overwhelmed by all of the changes in their lives that were happening so quickly. 

Noah had already registered for all of the classes that he would have to take.  Even if Dale was no longer involved, he realized that he would still need more training to run a profitable business.  The next year was going to be very busy and challenging for him, but he’d do anything for his family.

Screenshot-2195After they finished eating, Noah took their trays down to the kitchen.  Shawn surprised Noah by taking the trays from him.  Ever since Noah had hurt Sharlee, Shawn had been upset with him.  Cara had said he’d better never hurt Sharlee again but that she forgave him.  Of course the younger kids didn’t know the details.  They only knew that Sharlee wasn’t well.

“Thanks.”

Screenshot-2196“Sure.  Noah, me and one of my buddies are taking Aiden and his friend Billy to the arcade on Saturday.  Would you like to go with us?”

Screenshot-2195Noah wanted to spend as much time with Sharlee as he could before he got really busy.   Also she was still on bedrest.  

“Thanks for asking me, but I think I’d better keep Sharlee company.”

Screenshot-2193Shawn laughed.  “I already told her I was gonna ask you and she said to tell you to go with us.  That you need some guy time.”

Screenshot-2189Noah smiled thinking of Sharlee’s ideas of guy time!   “Alright.  Does this mean we’re okay again?”

Screenshot-2194“Yeah, we’re okay.  I know you didn’t hurt my Sis on purpose.  Just don’t let it happen again!”

Screenshot-2202That Saturday, Noah did have a good time with his two brothers-in-law, and they were glad that he had gone with them.

  1. Ahhh! Finally! I was checking for this chapter every hour or so.
    I don’t like the way Gene was interested in making a copy of Sharlee’s picture, he seems shady. And all of the attention Alissa and Sharlee have gotten for their looks has ended badly. Hopefully Noah is on his toes (but calm!) with this situation.
    I can’t wait to see your pictures in Isla Paradiso. I was thinking that if Dale’s deal didn’t work out for them, maybe they would move there and run a resort or something. Lol. I’m not sure that Sharlee’s doctors will want her flying right now though, with the pregnancy being so sensitive.

    • Sorry I was so late posting this week! 😦

      It did seem shady didn’t it? It definitely made Noah uncomfortable. That’s why he wouldn’t let Gene make a copy of the picture.
      My resorts aren’t working right yet! 😦 It’s a mod conflict and this evening I’m going to try to figure out which one.

      I didn’t think about Sharlee’s pregnancy and flying! 😯 Hmm, that’s something I might have to change. She may not be able to fly, or maybe the doctor will okay it if it’s not a long flight?

      I have to update Mutation, and then I’ll start the pictures for the next chapter of Alissa.

      Thanks for reading my story, Bethany! 🙂

      • Forgot to mention that I started reading Mutation while I was waiting. It’s not the usual sims story I’d read, but I love your writing style.
        I don’t play with mods, and I love the resorts feature. My sims don’t even work anymore, just live on a private island off their resort profits and make babies like crazy 😛

      • Thanks Bethany! I know there a lot of people who don’t like Scifi, but I love it. I decided to try writing it. Although I’m not so sure I’ll do another Scifi story after this one! 😀

        I’m still testing the game and slowly adding in my Mods. So far they are checking-in but I still have several more mods to add and test. I’ve tried playing without the Mods again, but I think I’m too used to having them now! LOL I will definitely set up a save with a private island resort after I get my game straightened out. It sounds like so much fun! 🙂

  2. I have been looking for this chapter for ages! I’m so glad that Noah might reach his dream of becoming a Harley Davidson Owner, but Gene seems very shady. I don’t like how he asked for a copy of Sharlee’s picture. That just seems wrong! I think i might smell danger in the future.

    It’s good that Shawn is okay with Noah, Noah didnt mean to hurt Sharlee and hopefully he won’t in the future!

    I preordered Island Paradise for download, but I don’t know where to download it from. Do you think you cam help me? This is my first expansion pack that i have actually ordered, and i’m a bit lost. Any information you can give me will help! 🙂

    Great Update! 🙂

    • Oh, I feel bad keeping you guys waiting so long! 😦

      Yes, it does look like Noah’s dream might work out for him. 🙂
      Gene did seem shady, and Noah didn’t like the way he reacted to Sharlee’s picture. I could say something else, but I’ll wait and for you to see it in the story! LOL

      Shawn was upset with Noah because he’d really looked up to him and expected him to take care of Sharlee, not ever hurt her. He’d been badly hurt by Monet and it brought those feelings back up in him. Now he’s forgiven Noah though.

      Go to your Origin launcher. You should have the icon on your desktop and then Island Paradise will be listed under “My Games.” You can download it from there. I pre-ordered it too and they have yet to give me my registration codes for the pre-order bonus content. It happens to me just about every time, and they say that they will send them after I spend hours on the phone with them. 😡

      Thanks for reading, Queen! 🙂

  3. I jumped so high and was sooo happy to see that the next chapter was ready for me to read. Great story. I know you said in the comments in the last chapter that the next one would be full of more drama!!! Can’t wait! Literally!

  4. love the chapter glad Sharlee’s getting better but what was she crying about hope Noah doesn’t tack the car deal offer because something seems shady and in the long run it will be sharlee who gets hurt because gene will do something terrible cart wait to see Isla paradise pictures also glad Shawn is happy with Noah again.

    • Thanks Jade!

      She really didn’t know why she was crying. LOL
      Yeah, Noah wants the deal, but only if it seems like it will work for him and Sharlee.
      I figured out which mod was preventing my resorts from working properly, and so yay, they can go to Isla Paradiso!

      Thanks for reading, Jade! 🙂

  5. wow so that’s a lot going on. I mean it’s good for Noah I guess but he really shouldn’t be letting Sharlee be in on the campaign thing. I’m surprised Dale agreed as well considering he’s a doctor and even though it’s not supposed to be much, I see tons of stress when she has cameras in her face and such.

    Not to mention the fact that I see Noah getting groupies, which means jealously. And we already know Noah’s temper if one of those guys look at Sharlee the wrong way.

    Nope, sorry I just see bad things with this right now. 😦 Hopefully I will be wrong.

    • Yes, it’s a lot going on at one time for Noah and Sharlee. Dale doesn’t want them to miss out on a good opportunity, but you’re right he doesn’t want to endanger Sharlee or the baby either. It’s a big decision for them to make.

      Yeah, the groupies and fans could be a problem. It could bring more problems than benefits. They really have a lot to consider in making their decision.
      It seems like every time something good happens, something bad comes with it! 😦

      Thanks for reading, Jaz! 🙂

  6. Awesome update, I am so glad Noah is perusing his dreams it makes me all giddy inside, but his business partners better not back stab him or I will reach onto this story and choke the life out of them Noah and Sharlee need some good times enough with all the bad times 🙂 Yay free vacation….kinda. Can’t wait for the next update, I love love love this series.

    • Thanks Mick!

      Yes, it’s time that he got some kind of a chance! It is a big risk in many ways for him though.
      Free vacation, kinda! LOL It does sound like that!

      Awww, thank you so much, Mick! I really appreciate that! 🙂

  7. Sorry haven’t commented lately my computer got all viruses up after I looked up something. Why don’t Alyssa and Dale age up I mean the kids do but they don’t and I like how dale was nice enough to give Noah money to open his own shop. Did u get island paradise or are u getting it I got it per-ordered and it said if 4000 people pre-order between the 1st and 21st I got It on the 22nd so I didn’t think I would get barnacle bay and I bought when I went to Kingston the next day I could have gotten it for free if I had waited but I didn’t which sucked big time. I don’t trust the gene guy because he wanted to photo copy that pic of sharlee I think Noah should be careful of him.

    • Computers can be a pain sometimes!

      I thought about aging Dale and Alissa up, and I will eventually. Alissa would be in her late thirties and Dale in his early forties. So I don’t feel like they need to be aged up quite yet. LOL

      Yes, Dale is really trying to help them now that they have a baby on the way. He does want Sharlee and his grandchild to be well cared for. 🙂

      I pre-ordered Island Paradise, but they still have not given me the registration codes for the pre-order bonus content. The Barnacle Bay code they gave me didn’t work. I have the original Barnacle Bay and I wanted what came with the later release. I’ve been trying to be patient and wait, but soon it will be a month of waiting. This is the third time Origin has done this to me. I have to spend hours on the phone and on chat trying to get what was promised for pre-ordering! 😡 Sorry for the rant! LOL

      Noah didn’t trust Gene either! Hopefully he’ll stay on guard and things will work out for them.

      Thanks for reading Awesome! 🙂

  8. lol – worth the wait 😛

    That’s an amazing offer for Noah, and it would be an awesome life for their children to grow up with their father in the Harley Davidson business! And yet, Sharlee didn’t seem as enthusiastic as she should to perhaps make it a good idea… They’d be a model family which isn’t what either of them particularly want from the impression I got. It’s good though that Dale was willing to give up the reigns (as it were) to Noah and allow him to continue to succeed without his assistance.

    It’s nice that Shawn’s going to give his brother-in-law some time away from everything to let loose and be away from Sharlee for a while – it’s good ‘n all that he’s consistently by Sharlee’s side, but he deserves a break!

    Thankyou for making a rather rubbishy day so much happier – I genuinely appreciate it! If you do decide to let Noah take the offer, don’t you dare have any hot blonde girl try break up their marriage – a risk which should be taken into careful consideration especially as if you break them up I will personally have to smash up my computer and for my computers sake…! Anyways on a less DEADLY SERIOUS note, cheerz and woooo Alissa! 😛

    Also I had a suggestion: as the family is branching out – even though their now all living together now – you could do a separate series that could maybe follow the life of the new baby Narlee or Shoa (shipshipshipshipshipshipshipshipshipshipshipshipshipshipshipshipshipshipshipshipship)
    It’s just an suggestion though and it’s going really well as it is (obviously :P) but just thought I’d put that randomly out there and yeah I should probably get some sleep… BYEBYEBYEBYE 🙂 😀 😛 =) =D =P

    • Harry, I was having a rubbishy day too. Problems with my other story, that made me not want to work on any stories, but you made me smile! 😀
      I’m actually writing more Alissa right now. 😀

      It does sound like a really great opportunity for Noah. Hopefully it will work out for him. You’re right about Sharlee’s lack of enthusiasm. She’s worried about Noah because she knows that he won’t like modeling clothes and doing commercials. She’s also worried that he will feel overwhelmed by having so much more responsibility all at once. She’s knows that right now there isn’t much that she can do to help make things easier for him.

      Shawn is really nice and he does like Noah. You’re right that Noah needed a break and to have some fun.
      No hot blondes! What about a brunette? LOL No, I don’t have any plans for that happening. They will have enough going on otherwise. 😀

      I did think of doing separate stories, but I have such a hard time updating this one regularly as well as Mutation. So for now at least, they’ll all just be on one blog. I appreciate the suggestion though! 🙂

      Thanks for reading and for making me smile! 😀

  9. I have been waiting for this chapter for ages!
    Honestly I have no idea what I did in my spare time before I started reading this. I think you are amazing storyteller!
    Also one last thing, When the sims 4 comes out are you going to carry on with alissa?

    • What a nice thing to say! Thank you so much! 🙂

      I plan to continue Alissa, but I think it will still be a Sims 3 story. Sims 4 is gonna have to blow me away before I buy it. I’m actually online working on Mutation this morning. I’ve started writing more chapters of Alissa too.

      Thanks for reading my story, Niamhy! 🙂

  10. Your story makes me want to start my own sims story and just plague the community with my never ending drama! >:D bwahahaha.

    But seriously,

    I caught onto the Alissa story rather late because you were already on chapter 110 of Alissa Continues. So I must admit I spent a whole night reading it from start to finish (my eyes were swimming by the end of it) and I’ve been following it ever since. I love each and every one of your characters and if they were real people, I’d want to meet them because you make their personalities so realistic and accessible. I love it. You really are a talented writer!

    This chapter specifically hooked me even more because I can’t wait to see how it all turns out. The saying “if it seems too good to be true, it probably is” comes to mind, so I hope this Harley Davidson deal doesn’t screw Noah over or something. It’s hardly likely that they’re going to be good to some young guy they’ve never met and have no previous dealings with, ya know? That’s just my opinion :]

    Anyway, I can’t wait for the next chapter! The suspense is killing me. It’s even worse than when you’re waiting for the next episode of your favorite show. xD

    • Bethany that is one of the best compliments I have ever received for my writing! I really appreciate your telling me that! I’ve always worried that my writing of my characters wasn’t deep enough. Thank you so much! I’m glad you enjoyed reading it so much! 🙂

      Noah hasn’t had very many good things happen to him. It’s to the point now that he has a hard time trusting anyone. 😦 Hopefully this will work out for him.

      I hate making you guys wait! LOL I’m working on my new story today, but I have done some more writing for Alissa. I hadn’t planned to work on the next chapter till next week, but if I finish with Mutation tomorrow, I’ll probably start working on the pictures for Alissa. 😀

      Thanks for reading my story, Bethany! 🙂

    • Hi Erin! I hadn’t planned to post a new chapter until the 29th. I needed to do some more writing and work on my other story.
      I’ve written more chapters now sooner than I’d planned, and so I’m actually on my computer now getting the savefile ready for pictures. 🙂
      The next chapter will be posted on Monday if not before. Sorry for making you wait! I had the storyline in my head but not written. So I had to take some time and write. 😀

      Thanks for continuing to read my story! 🙂

      • Do you in anyway get money for your stories??They are so good you should!!

        P.S I dont think I can wait till Monday!!! 😦

      • Awww, thanks Millie! No, my stories are just for fun. A publisher would probably laugh if I tried to get them published! It’s so sweet of you to say that though. 🙂

        I’m working on the pictures today. It may be ready to post tomorrow. 😀

  11. Wow, they are going to be the new faces of Harley Davidson? OMG, how cool is that? I’m excited for them, I know how much Noah loves bikes, and now he’ll get paid for his passion. I hope though the campaigning bit doesn’t get too much for Sharlee, she is still recovering health-wise.

    Great update, Daisies!

    • Yeah, this seems like the kind of job that Noah would be really good at doing. 😀
      Sharlee will definitely have to be careful not to overdo it and to speak up if it becomes too much for her!

      Thanks, Va,l and thanks for reading my story! 🙂

  12. I also forgot to tell you when I last left a comment that my internet went kaplooey and I didn’t have internet for a month and week.
    Alright, this comment will be short, because, I can’t describe how I’m feeling right now. I just can’t.

    • Hi Anaiah! 🙂

      I had internet problems over several weeks a couple of months ago. I know what a pain in the neck that is! 😡

      Awww, it looks like things are starting to look better for Noah and Sharlee! 😀

      Thanks for reading, Anaiah! :smile;

    • Hello Ilaria!

      I thought I’d have the next chapter finished today, but family stuff kept me from working on it over the weekend. I’m back to working on the pictures now though, and hope it will be posted tonight. 🙂

      Thanks for reading, Ilaria! Sorry to keep you waiting! 🙂

  13. You really should try doing a legacy! (When you’re finished with your current stories). I saw your last comment! Are you posting chapter 121 soon??

    • I’ve tried, but I can’t stick with them. I get too sad when the first generation dies, and after the children start being born, I hate that they don’t get everything they want. LOL I know it’s silly to be that way because they aren’t real, but I can’t help it! 😯

      My game crashed, but I restarted it. So I’m taking the last pictures now. Should be posted in just a little while. I have to warn you that the pictures are not my best. Hope you still enjoy it though. 🙂

      • That’s adorable and hilarious :). I have a suggestion, though: make sure two of the kids from each gen are clones, so you can keep playing them and not have to have them die.

  14. Sorry for being so late to comment. I hope everything’s ok with you.
    I liked this chapter, it seems that everything is finally working out for Noah. I hope the Harley deal doesn’t cause problems though.
    I like that Shawn has forgiven Noah, he didn’t mean to do what he did and it’s nice that Shawn and even Dale are beginning to forgive.

    • That’s okay, Clairey! I’m just glad you’re okay! 🙂 I’m fine too!

      I’m glad you liked it. It was one of those that I wasn’t really sure about because I couldn’t seem to get it how I wanted.
      It does seem to be working out for Noah right now. Hopefully it will continue to go better for him.

      Yeah, Shawn knew that Noah didn’t hurt Sharlee on purpose. It just took him a little longer to forgive Noah.

      Thanks for reading, Clairey! 🙂
