Note from Lady Adurna:
I know, I know, I've been late again. This is the third time I got late in posting my update, and if you say that it's already superfluity, yes, I agree. But it's reasonable. My internet was error (I mean, yeah, very very error) so every time I wanted to post my update, it wouldn't let me save it. And the next day, I had to re-create the story again! Plus, I go to a private school, where my school starts at 7 am and ends at 4 pm, so I only have a little time to play TS3 with all the homework that I have to finish. So... I realized that I can't post my future update as often as the other mothers, and I hope you can forgive me. Maybe I'll post every 2-3 weeks. But I'll try to make my future updates more interesting. Oh, and one more thing: sorry if in this update I didn't write about Elijah and Kameron so much, cause I wanted to focus on the triplets. I hope you can enjoy this update! ;)
It was time for the triplets' birthday bash! Rosemary was sleeping when I told her that she had to age up. She wasn't really happy about being woken up, but she agreed to get ready.
I gasped when I saw her look. She looked like Della Eve Wriner, with that messy braid hair, thin curved eyebrows, and unique lips shape! Maybe the only differences were her face shape, hair color, and eye color..
And it was Freesia's turn... I bought her the same strawberry cake that she really loved!
Aww.. what a pretty young lady she turned out! She really got Jimmy Lolik's face shape, and the only feature she got from me was her thick, well defined brows.
"Whoof!" Bluebell blew the candles on her birthday cake. She was very ready to age up!
Whee! What a cute teenager you were, Bluebell!
Like when she was a child, the teenager version of Freesia still loved to clean everything she could in the house. I was really happy about her helpful attitude around her house.
Even after she promised that she wouldn't do the same thing ever again, Rosemary was still the laziest one in the triplets. Yes, she helped me with the house chores, but she only helped me in weekend. In weekdays, she just sat on the couch and played her favorite video games.
"Hey! Don't you remember when I said that you have to help Mom?" Freesia snapped at her when she walked to the living room and saw that Rosemary was watching her favorite TV show. Rosemary frowned and snapped back, "Yes, of course I remember! So what?" Freesia growled, "Then you have to do it!"
Rosemary yawned lazily. "Yeah, yeah... I will do it. Now get out of the room, sis, I want to watch Glee." She looked at her watch and glanced at the TV. Glee was her favorite show, but Freesia didn't like it.
"Can't you even listen to me?" Freesia said with anger in her voice. Rosemary still bothered her and looked at the floor. "Rosemary, forget that stupid Glee! Help me to clean the house! NOW!" Freesia screamed. She looked really frustrated.
"ALRIGHT, Freesia!" Finally Rosemary looked up and moaned. "I will do it if you get off of my way!"
(trivia: the short-haired woman behind her is Rosemary before I changed her appearance!)
...suddenly I saw Bluebell there!
I was speechless, and all I could say was, "It's alright, Bluebell, we will go home after this, okay? There's nothing to worry about, I love you so much..." She gave me a big hug.
"Mr Sekemoto! I don't know how to say thank you... I was too happy.." I said happily. Mr Sekemoto smiled. "No problem, Leah. Just call me Leighton." I grinned. "Alright then, Leighton! Thank you! And how do you know my name?"
Leighton laughed. "Well, actually Bluebell has your face features, so when I saw her in the street, all I could think was, 'Oh my goodness it was Leah's daughter!' so I quickly picked her and brought her to my home. But she was not ready to come home yet! She was too afraid that her sisters would mock her scars like they did to her attitude..."
I hugged Leighton tightly. "I'll make sure that it won't happen again. And thank you so much, Leighton!"
I cooked a special dinner for the family, and arranged a little party for the Sierras, to celebrate Bluebell's arrival to our home again.
"Holly... Your big sister is now home again! Are you happy? Are you happy?" I teased my little Holly until she laughed.
"Time for birthday, Kameron!" It was a perfect day, and I really wanted to make everything perfect. And what was more perfect than another birthday bash?
Whoa! Kameron really looked like his father with that unique hair color and tan skin... too bad he didn't get his shimmering blue eyes. But he was cute after all, so never mind!
Hello, little Santa! Holly's hair was pure white, and so was her eyebrows, but she got my eyes and skin. She has a big and sweet smile that would make everyone wanted to pinch her cheeks.
Bluebell was very intrigued to try a make over. I knew she wanted to be different from her sisters, so I took her to Barney's Salon and Tattoo. "Mmm.. Mom, are you sure all these highlights were safe for my hair?" She asked again.
Haha! Can you spot the different? Yes, my hair color. But it's not the only difference. I also changed the color of my earrings, shoes, and bangles.
Awww, how sweet! I really love twins in action!
Freesia almost cried when she heard Rosemary's soft tone. She didn't know that her sister could be that gentle to someone. "Thanks, Rosemary. And I'm sorry I was so mean to you..." Rosemary smiled and shook her head. "I was also mean to you too. Believe me, I didn't mean it. I was just.. mad. Sorry..."
"Now, it's just Bluebell. I'm so scared she won't talk to us again, and I really miss the old Bluebell--you know, who always smiled and chatted with everybody. I even miss her strange act..." Freesia sighed. Rosemary shrugged. "I really think we should say sorry for her. But the problem is, how? What should we do to make her forgive us?" They paused for a while, then suddenly Rosemary smiled. "I have an idea..."
Meanwhile, Bluebell was reading a fantasy book. Not just at school, even at her own house she acted very calm and quiet. Her face looked very sad all the time, and I always wanted to hug her to sweep off all her worries. But just after she opened the very first page of the book, she heard Freesia's voice, calling her from downstairs.
"What's going on? Why did you call me?" Bluebell said with fear in her voice. She still afraid that her sisters would hurt her again.
"Well, actually we want to say sorry.." Rosemary said. Bluebell's eyes widened. When they got no response from her, Freesia quickly added, "Yeah, we're so sorry, Bluebell! We know we were wrong, and we know that you're not a crazy girl at all. Even if sometimes you acted strangely, we understand that it was the one that make you special, make you different from the other girl. And we accept it, because no matter what happened, you're still our sister..."
Bluebell's eyes filled with a little bit tears. "Of course I forgive you. Both of you.." Freesia giggled. "That's not all." Rosemary grinned. "Yeah, that's not all! To prove our sincerity, we'll give you..."
"A butterfly!" Before Rosemary could finish her sentence, Bluebell already interrupted her.
"Oh my God! I love it, I LOVE IT!! How did you catch it?" Bluebell was a butterfly lover, but whenever she caught a butterfly, she couldn't hold it too long to put it into a box. Now when she saw a beautiful, blue butterfly in front of her, she couldn't help but scream happily. Freesia smiled sweetly. "Well, Rosemary caught it and then I put that in a box." Rosemary laughed. "It was a little bit hard indeed, but it was worth it!"
"Thank you so much, Rosie! You're the best sister in the world, ever!" Bluebell gave Rosemary a big hug, when Freesia sullen in the background.
"What's wrong, sis? You have given me the sweetest give in my entire life, why did your face look like that?" Bluebell asked softly.
"Oh, no, no.. There's nothing wrong about you. It was just me. When I heard you called Rosemary your best sister, I got.. well..." Freesia's face gone red. Bluebell looked surprised for a while, then she burst out laughing. "Wait, what? You're jealous?" Freesia bit her lips. "No, I meant... Oh, whatever! Yes, I am!"
Bluebell gave Freesia her cutest smile, then hugged her very tightly. "You don't supposed to be jealous. Both of you are the best sisters in the world for me, and nothing can compare you in that thing. I love you very much..." Freesia smiled thankfully.
"Mistletoe! Mom said we must not eat that!" Holly was very obedient to my instructions, but Mistletoe was a rebel one. She still ate her doll, even when Holly already warned her!
Now when everything got back in their places, I decided to hang out with Leighton, to say thank you for all his help to my daughter. He agreed to spend the whole afternoon with me and we met up at the bistro...
Like usual, I ordered my favorite food, Cookies, when Leighton ordered a plate of Baked Angel Food Cake. Hmm, it looked so good! I reminded myself to search for the recipe. "So.. I called you here to say thank you. I think I won't meet Bluebell again if you didn't bring her to your house." I started the conversation.
"It's okay, Leah! I'm so happy I can help you. However, I'm also a family-oriented, so I love children, even a teenager like Bluebell. So how is she now?" Leighton asked carefully. Oh, how caring was he! I smiled. "She's okay. Her sisters have said sorry to her, and it's enough for me. As long as the triplets happy, I'll be happy too."
Leighton also smiled and complimented me, "How a good mother are you! I wish I can take part in your challenge..." I almost coughed when he said that. "What? Really? You want to take part in my challenge?"
When Leighton nodded, I quickly stood up from my chair and gave a him a very big hug. "Thank you, thank you, Leighton! It means a lot to me!"
We immediately finished our lunch and went to my home...
When I looked at the window of the taxi, I couldn't help but smiled. The sunset was very beautiful.. it was a perfect and romantic evening to conceive baby 10!
"Mr. Sekemoto!" Bluebell was jumping on the trampoline when she saw the taxi. She quickly ran to us.
"Mr. Sekemoto! How are you?" Bluebell asked vigorously. Leighton smiled gently and rubbed her head. "I'm fine, thanks, Bluebell! How are you?"
"Oh, I'm so fine! My sisters are so kind to me now, and I really think we won't have the same problem ever again. Thank you so much for giving me a bed and food three times a day in your house, Mr. Sekemoto!" Bluebell said thankfully. They chatted for a while, then Bluebell went upstairs to do her homework.
(trivia: the short-haired woman behind her is Rosemary before I changed her appearance!)
And she turned out pretty good! I don't know if any of you notice it, but if she remove her make up and change her hair color and hairstyle, she will definitely look like me!
"Mmm.. it tastes so good, isn't it?" Elijah said happily. Kameron nodded. "Sssh, don't talk. Mom always says we mustn't talk when we're eating!" But he also enjoyed the cookies to bits.
Elijah's new friend apparently had a strange trait in her blood. Instead of cheering for Elijah's birthday, she went to the skill room and had really weird expressions in front of the mirror.
And yes! I headed home with a lovely baby carrier in my hand!
And baby 11, Tanner Sierra!
-Kori J Bergstrom for the twins' names
-AnoeskaB for Rosemary's dirty face
-Lemonleaf for my tears (and Della Wriner for giving me the idea)
-BILLABONG_ for Bluebell's bloody face
-ProwlerTylo for Bluebell's scars
And special thanks for you, who read this! I hope you'll understand if in the future, I can't post as often as the other mothers, like I said on the top of this post. And I hope you can enjoy my future updates! I love you all! :)
