3 years had passed since Michael s death. His loss had left a permanent hole in my heart that nothing could ever fill…but I managed to get passed his death, with the help of Rebecca. I couldn’t have done it without her. I had hit rock bottom, and like the angel she is, she had reached down and pulled me out of the deep hole I was stuck in. I owed everything to her. There’s no way I could have made it without her. She was so wonderful. I still remember the first day she came to visit me…

I was in the infirmary. I had to stay there for a few days, so they could monitor my behavior. They thought I might try to commit suicide, or maybe I’d just lose it all together and go crazy. I probably would have, too, if it weren’t for her…


                 I was standing in my room, staring blankly out the window. Just like I had been doing for the past 3 hours. Everything felt so empty, it’s like nothing mattered anymore… Until the door to my room suddenly cracked open. I didn’t notice at first, I was too lost to notice much of anything. But then I heard her sweet, angel-like voice…

“Josh?” Surprised, I quickly turned my head around. What I saw could only be described as the light at the end of the tunnel. It was Rebecca, standing there sheepishly with flowers and a teddy bear in her arms. She smiled, and the room seemed to light up.

“Hey you! I know flowers and stuffed animals are a bit girly, but-” I interrupted her.

“No…Thank you.” I said, both confused and awe-struck.

She walked over to the bed, putting the flowers on a table and handing me the teddy bear before sitting next to me.

“If you don’t mind me asking…how did it happen? How did he die, I mean?” She looked at me with big eyes, full of curiosity and sorrow.

I paused, staring down at the brown bear in my hands.

“I’m sorry…It’s too soon..It was wrong of me to ask.”

“He, uh… drowned. He was only 5, and I guess he managed to get out the door, unsupervised somehow…” I trailed off, my gaze still locked on the stuffed bear.

She didn’t say anything, but after a few seconds she put her arms around my shoulders and gave me a small hug. I was shocked, I didn’t know what to do…

but her warmth felt so good. She made me feel something again.

She came to visit me every day, and each day she brought a new gift. Eventually, my once bleak infirmary room started to light up with the items she had bought me. She would stay with me for hours. Sometimes we’d talk, other times she would just keep me company. Pretty soon, I even started smiling again. She was so amazing. I couldn’t believe a girl like her would even give a guy like me the time of day.




I’ve been with her for 3 years now. Possibly the 3 best years of my life. I never imagined that I would find a girl quite like her…I was in love. Head over heels in love. She was smart, pretty, sweet, and most importantly, she was mine. She was better than the girl of my dreams. I wanted to start a life with her. I wanted to start my life with her.

    • I know, I’m the writer and I feel so bad for Josh. How could I be so mean to my simmies? Haha. But things will start going uphill for him from here. That doesn’t mean there won’t be some drama here and there, though!

  1. Hey, I loved this new chapter! I really liked Rebecca, something must’ve happened to make her do that 😦 After all, Josh called her smart. I would assume that she would be smart enough to not do that with a much older man when Josh could obviously walk in on them at any time (even if he was away doing something first). Just wondering, how do you do multiple pages?

  2. I seriously hope Josh gets some happiness soon and I hope Rebecca is living on the streets or something and Josh finds someone better 😛
    Can’t wait for the next part of the story!
    Update sooooooon! XD

  3. I’m hooked! This is amazing. Your such a great storyteller! Rebecca was beautiful, to bad she turned out to be such a jerk… I really like Josh’s character though, I feel for him and he was adorable as a kid. His dad is such a perv, I’m glad he’s dead =/.

    • I thought Josh was adorable as a kid too. Who could say no to those bug blue eyes? Thank you! I put a lot of work into making it a good story. I’m really glad you like it. 🙂 Yeah, luckily no more of Josh’s dad. Josh gets a bitttt of a break in the next chapter though! Also thanks for the comment on Rebecca, I made her myself in CAS, and I am by no means a good Sim maker haha. Next chapter coming Monday!

  4. Hey I’m loving the story so far, even though I feel really sorry for Josh. Hopefully someone else will come into his life soon! When’s the next update? I’m really looking forward to it! 🙂

    • I’m glad you like it! The next chapter isn’t going to be quite so serious. It’s actually going to be a little goofy. 🙂 The next update is going to come sometime on Monday. (WordPress time…Monday for wordpress is actually 5pm Sunday to 5pm Monday My time, so who knows what it could be for you!)

  5. Wow…ultimate betrayal. As if being responsible for Michael’s death wasn’t enough the dad had to rob him of his fiance too. Poor Josh all alone. On one hand its understandable that a young girl could get easily seduced by an expert “man ho” but at the same time it’s like…what self respecting woman would sleep with their fiance’s dad! Onward to chapter 3!

    • Yeah, she was not quite what she seemed to be. Poor Josh, he just can’t get a break! 😦 I feel so bad being mean to him, hahaha. I’m such a softie, even for Sims. But luckily the next chapter is more easy-going. 🙂

  6. Oh wow, fuck Rebecca and Josh’s dad. They don’t deserve any sympathy. How can you knowingly sleep with someone’s dad? First off, he’s old and prolly a little crusty, and second, they just got engaged! Grrr. Anywho, I hope Josh’s life starts to look up soon…

    • Yeah, she was not nearly as sweet as she looked. But at least she helped Josh get over Michael’s death! That’s something, right? Ha. I agree, I don’t think she deserves any sympathy. She didn’t even TRY to make things right with Josh.

  7. I don’t know what to say…. she…. that little!!!! His father is even worse! What did she think exactly?! Sleeping with his father…. that’s low. very low. Josh deserves better than a girl that her and they were engaged! 😦

    Please tell me that Josh’s life will become a little more bright? 🙂

    • His father is TERRIBLE! Poor Josh. He just can’t get a break 😦 He was heartbroken, that’s for sure. But yes, his life does look up from here. 🙂 Nothing TOOOO terrible happens for awhile!
