Whenever Lexie is out at night, messages like this pop up regularly.
The paparazzi ghost has made herself quite at home, though everyone finds her much less annoying now that she's dead. She and Lexie had a nice conversation about recipes over breakfast.
For the first time, Lexie decided to try out the digger Sandra had made while she was still living at home. It was really loud!
Suddenly the machine stopped and she saw a bright glow in the ground. Had she really dug that deep?
Sims logic: When you find a portal to some other land the only thing to do is to just jump in! She has chased by dwarves and narrowly escaped with her life, but she didn't regret the adventure.
In the meantime, Evan came over and followed Emily into the time machine. They were traveling to the middle ages to see the awesome castles. Let's hope no one comes home with a plague!
They must have really enjoyed themselves because Evan began walking around the lot with a "stride of pride."
About an hour later, a young girl fought her way out of the time machine.
"Fyew," she said, feeling exhausted. "I finally made it."
And then this popped up on the screen! Instant baby - er - teenager.
Well she does have Evan's eyes and Emily's lips, but where did that blonde hair come from? Maybe it's Kyle's genes. Apparently her name is Evelyn.
Emily ran to see what was happening and bumped into a beautiful young girl dressed like a princess.
"Mom, why did you leave me back there?" she demanded.
"Uhhh," Emily started, feeling very confused. "If I am your mother, how did you recognize me and how did you follow me to the future.... obviously years after I... gave birth? I don't remember giving birth." She felt even more confused now than she had when she started her questions.
"Mom, don't ask me for details because I don't have them. All I know is that I'm here now and I'm your daughter. I want to live with you and dad, together. Please don't send me back," she begged.
"Well things with me and your father are complicated. We aren't exactly together, um, well, I mean we don't live together. He lives with his - uh - wife." Emily paused feeling lame. How is this real? she wondered. I'm not a mom. I can't raise a teenager.
With unexpected excitement, Evelynn exclaimed, "I have siblings?! This is wonderful. When can I meet them? Where is dad? And wait," she paused to take a much-needed breath, "I have a step-mom?"
"Hehe," Emily laughed nervously, "You do, I guess, but you can't meet them, or her, because she doesn't know about your father and me. It's just... well, it's complicated, like I said."
Evelynn searched her face, trying to understand. "I can't meet them? I have siblings and I can't even meet them because you and dad are what, having an affair?" Her face showed confusion and judgement.
Stunned Emily took a moment to gather her thoughts. "Hmm. I guess we are." She looked away feeling guilty. "Look, let's just talk to your father and see what he's willing to do. He might leave her for us, but I've not asked him yet so..." Emily paused, realizing just how convoluted all of this must sound.
"I guess humans never evolved out of such behavior," Evelynn mused, feeling superior.
Emily looked hurt.
"Well where is he?" Evelynn rushed forward, not wanting to face the pain in her mother's eyes.
