Erin and Colin’s daughter, Mallory turns four this fall. She’s very active, and doesn’t shy away from people. She has lots of questions about her absent Dad, and Erin is hopeful the two kids will become friends now that Mallory is no longer a toddler.
Caitlyn is five months pregnant, and getting settled into her first semester at EU. She told her Dad and twin brother the news, Aidan felt upset that he was in boot camp and couldn’t lend a hand, while their Dad was more excited about his recent promotion to a record store clerk.
Caitlyn only survives her classes with the help of coffee, which she’s told is bad for the baby’s health. She tries to force a smile, everyone around her is happily enjoying their freshman year, staying out late, and she’s crawling into bed as soon as the sun sets.
She got placed in Westfall Hall with her entire graduating class, she should have been enjoying herself with all her closest friends too and she pities herself being left out. Even Lewis is living it up in the dorm. When she talks of finding an apartment off campus, he quickly changes the subject and Caitlyn is growing concerned that he won’t move in with her and the baby in the second semester.
Zilla tries to lend advice, but it’s all quite grown up and out of her area of expertise. Besides, they have never been close, and Zilla knows Caitlyn is only talking to her now over it because Rachael has been best friends with Lewis since childhood, and perhaps she’d take his side.
Somedays, she wants to just quit school and go home to live with her Dad. There is room now that Aidan is gone, she could share her old bedroom with the baby, and get a job at a local shop. She wanted to be a social worker, but some days it all feels too big and unobtainable.
If she wasn’t doing so well academically, she might be more inclined. She’s pretty confident that her ‘boyfriend’ wouldn’t miss her much at all, and she’s not sure how to process that.
Notes: College and pregnancy has taken its toll on Caitlyn, she had a pregnancy scare, and it’s very hard to keep her motives up. She is rolling a lot of wants for Lewis, but it is not returned at all. I still don’t know what I’m going to do with these two and the baby. They are a one bolt relationship, and Caitlyn was the one that initiated it all. I’ve always known she had stronger feelings for Lewis, but he still would roll wants and ACR with her, but he is doing nothing of that in college. He’s stuck to that darn karaoke machine like a junky!
Caitlyn shared the news with her Dad, and he immediately started talking about music. He had just got promoted to record store clerk! About time buddy!
I was happy with Mallory’s age up, and happy with the genetic diversity between her and Logan. Mallory has the same profile as Caitlyn with the swoopy nose. And Jake looks how I expected, he’s a knowledge sim which matched him pretty perfectly.
Thanks for reading!
