Canterbury Cove - a BaCC: Week Eight - Lieman  
Photobucket
The Lieman family had quickly outgrown their old little house and so a move to a new, much bigger house, was a much welcome idea. With all of their businesses flourishing, price was not really a factor in deciding what to build.

This household consists of Rachel Lieman and her husband Edward. Their four children Cameron, (and triplets) Cayla, Devon, and Evan. They have a servo named Mechi, and their dogs Echo and Knight recently had a puppy named Doug.

Cameron invited Reesa over to show her their new house right away. When he saw her he decided that he would like nothing other than to have her join their household and become a permanent part of his life.

He got down on one knee and asked her to marry him and she said yes without hesitation.

Photobucket
They decided that she would move in right away and Cameron could tell that he was not going to regret his decision to ask her to marry him.

Doug grew up to look much like his father, with just a bit of his mother mixed in.

Photobucket
The triplets had always been inseparable. They were as close as close could get. They were all each others' best friend.

Cayla was still seeing Miles which Cameron did not like. But he seemed like he was willing to stick around.

Photobucket
When not spending nearly every waking moment with his new fiancee, Cameron tried his best to make his rounds at the businesses that he now owned. His favorite was Just Dance.

Oftentimes many of the neighbors would stop by to hang out. There wasn't much else to do in such a small town.

Photobucket
That week was the triplets' birthday so a big party was thrown to celebrate their transition into adulthood.

Photobucket

Photobucket
For being triplets, they did not look much alike one another.

Photobucket

During the party Alina set her sights on someone new, his name was Donovan Wells. It wasn't that she didn't love Joel, she just felt restless...

Photobucket

Photobucket
Besides, it wasn't the first time that she had cheated on him, and she was pretty sure that it wouldn't be the last.

Photobucket

Photobucket
Evan and Cayla decided to get jobs in Business. Neither one really had anything specific that they wanted to do in the working world and business was one of those things that would always have openings.

Photobucket
Cameron had always wondered about his mother's witchiness. It wasn't something that was talked about much since it was a bit out of the norm and it made some of the residents uncomfortable.

Photobucket

Cameron decided to see what it was all about. He decided that it was a change that he was happy with and something that he wanted to stick with. The spells that he learned could really help him with his businesses which were one of his top priorities in life.

Photobucket

Photobucket
After seeing her brother fall in love, Cayla decided that she may as well go out on the town and see if she could find something like that for herself. She had thought that she loved Miles, but upon growing up she realized that it was just infatuation. While at Richard Albrecht's auditorium she met a sort of strange guy named Alexar Zanders. He was quite nice to her and they had a really good conversation about this and that. After talking for awhile Alexar said something that surprised her a little. "I know I don't know you that well but I swear that you would really hit it off with my friend, would you like me to introduce you to him? He is just standing over there."
Cayla looked where Alexar was pointing and saw that he was gesturing toward Joel Webber, Alina Albrecht's boyfriend. She was about to say something about the fact that he had a girlfriend but then she remembered what had happened between Alina at her adult birthday party and how she had had to scrub out the hottub. She decided that it wouldn't hurt to at least talk to Joel.

Photobucket
"Hello, I'm Joel, Alexar just told me that you were a really nice girl and that I should come over here and introduce myself." Joel said after he walked up to her.
"I'm Cayla Lieman," Cayla replied with a shy smile.
"Would you like to go in?" He asked with a broad smile and Cayla nodded.

Photobucket
They spent most of the night talking over some drinks but somehow after awhile they ended up dancing on the dance floor while slow music played in the background.

Photobucket
Cayla couldn't stop thinking about how handsome that Joel was and how he deserved someone so much better than Alina. She didn't know how Joel could still be with her. He had to know that he was being cheated on, the whole town practically knew. Perhaps because they had a kid? She didn't know.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket
After the song ended they awkwardly stepped apart.
"Would you like to go get something to eat? I'm starving," Joel said as he looked down at his watch. He was surprised to see how late it was. Wasn't it daytime when he arrived...?

Photobucket
Alina agreed that something to eat sounded wonderful so they started to make their way to the new restaurant that Bennett Carnahan had just opened up in town.

Photobucket
When they arrived Cayla turned around to ask Joel something and they found themselves somehow in each others' arms. They both laughed a little and Cayla could feel her face turning bright red. They slowly backed up and then turned to go inside.

Photobucket
"I hope the food is good, I'm rather hungry," Cayla said after they had been handed their menus.
Joel nodded slowly in agreement but he didn't seem to be paying too much attention. Suddenly Cayla felt very awkward.

Photobucket

Photobucket
They made small talk for awhile and when Bennett came to take their order he gave them a rather strange look, but like a good waiter he did not say anything. Cayla began to worry about what kind of reputation she was making for herself in such a small town. Barely an adult and already out with a man in a committed relationship.

Photobucket

Photobucket
The food turned out to be really good and Cayla felt herself relaxing as time wore on.

Photobucket
She was surprised as she felt Joel's hand rest on top of hers.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket
"You are really beautiful," Joel said shyly and Cayla beemed.

Photobucket
By the time they were ready to leave it was already very late, or perhaps very early, whichever way you want to look at it. Joel stepped in very close to Cayla, "I hope we can do this again sometime soon..."

Photobucket
But before she could reply he leaned in to kiss her and then left as she stood there with a the biggest and probably goofiest grin.

Photobucket
A few days later Cayla ran into Joel at the military base. She asked him if he would like to have dinner with her and he agreed.

Photobucket
Something about that night wasn't the same as the first one though. Joel seemed to be much more aloof and not as engaged in what they were talking about.

Photobucket
He relaxed much more when they went outside for a late night swim, something only two Pleasure sims like themselves would really understand or appreciate.

Photobucket
This time it was Cayla who kissed Joel as they were both getting ready to leave.
"Thanks, I had a great time," she said with a smile.

Photobucket
But when Joel pulled away her smile slowly slipped away when she saw his face.
"I... I don't think we should see each other anymore. I'm sorry..." Joel said and then he practically ran away. Cayla left heartbroken.

Photobucket
She felt bitter the next morning as everyone was getting ready for Cameron and Reesa's wedding. It wasn't that she wasn't happy for them, because she was, she just wanted something similar for herself.

Photobucket

Photobucket
The wedding was beautiful. Cameron was happier than he had ever been and Reesa felt the same. Neither of them could wait to start their own family and since the triplets were planning on moving out at the end of the week there would soon be more than enough room for new additions to the house.

Photobucket

Photobucket
It seems that Cameron was not the only one finding love though...

Photobucket
While other love remained much the same.

Yay! I'm so glad to see you're back! This was a nice update.
olivethegreat: richard albrechtolivethegreat on December 15th, 2011 05:31 am (UTC)
Thank you! It is good to BE back and I love my new computer so much. :) It is no longer frustrating to play.
Attic Box: L2atticbox on December 15th, 2011 09:02 am (UTC)
Wow. That is quite the large family. But at least things would never be dull with that many sims to keep up with and their house is really pretty.

The triplets are very interesting. Neat that they turned out to have such diversity.

This was a cute update. :)
olivethegreat: richard albrechtolivethegreat on December 15th, 2011 08:02 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I love that each of the kids look very different and they all have different personalities.

Great update!
olivethegreat: richard albrechtolivethegreat on December 15th, 2011 11:05 pm (UTC)
Thank you! :)
Laridian: xmas raylaridian on December 15th, 2011 03:19 pm (UTC)
yay, Canterbury Cove is back! :)

I feel bad for Cayla, but the situation isn't an easy one to resolve. Much like real life!

looking forward to reading more!
olivethegreat: richard albrechtolivethegreat on December 15th, 2011 11:07 pm (UTC)
I am glad to be able to play it again. I really missed it.

Yeah, it's pretty hard.
chickadeeleechickadeelee on December 15th, 2011 04:10 pm (UTC)
Great update! Joel and Cayla are really cute together, so I hope he leaves his cheating girlfriend and makes it official with Cayla! Such pretty pictures, especially of the wedding!
olivethegreat: richard albrechtolivethegreat on December 15th, 2011 11:08 pm (UTC)
I really like Joel and Cayla together. When they were set up on a blind date at first I was shocked and a bit wary, but I really ended up liking them together. We will just have to see how things turn out.
Angiepnkpnthr334 on December 15th, 2011 06:12 pm (UTC)
This is probably my favorite of your families. They're all so cute, and the triplets grew up great! I hope Cayla can find love soon. :)
olivethegreat: richard albrechtolivethegreat on December 15th, 2011 11:09 pm (UTC)
I really like the Lieman family too. Rachel is one of my favorite sims ever. I will be very sad when her time is up.
Thanks! I like that they all look different from one another and they each have their own personalities as well.
romyhorseromyhorse on December 16th, 2011 07:43 pm (UTC)
Warlocks & weddings, great to see you back!
olivethegreat: richard albrechtolivethegreat on December 17th, 2011 02:11 am (UTC)
Thank you. :)
kidd606 on December 17th, 2011 03:48 am (UTC)
You're back too? That's great. I'm glad you've been able to invest in a better machine so you won't have to deal with the borked game on your laptop.

Wow, that was one awkward first date. I can't wait to see where you're going with the Cayla vs. Alina thing. This could get very interesting...
olivethegreat: richard albrechtolivethegreat on December 17th, 2011 09:12 am (UTC)
Yes, I am. :) I am really happy that I have been able to get a new computer too. Playing ANYTHING on my laptop was frustrating. Even simple online games would lag like crazy - it was ridiculous.

The Albrecht family is up next in my rotation so you will get to find out soon enough what is going to happen. :)
Antimaccassarantimaccassar on December 18th, 2011 10:40 pm (UTC)
What a big household they've grown into! The triplets are all lovely! Great update :)
olivethegreat: richard albrechtolivethegreat on December 19th, 2011 12:39 am (UTC)
Thank you!
Sometimes it can be rather crazy playing such a big household, but I like it. The triplets will be moving out next week though so it is going to get just a bit smaller.

It's not always easy to find an acceptable love
olivethegreatolivethegreat on January 7th, 2012 12:03 am (UTC)
No, it's not always easy but that's life.
