Chapter tune: Heart – These dreams

“Is that young man of yours going to come today, sweetheart? I have baked a peach pie just for him” miss Myrtle asked Rose. For some reason she and Jared had really hit it off ever since they met, talking about recipes and trading kitchen secrets whenever Rose was getting ready for their dates after work. Rose thought this was funny, as most of people in town couldn’t stand him, but a sweet old lady was quickly becoming best friends with him.

“Yes, he’ll be here soon, we’re going to the festival. I’m so excited! And thank you so much for letting me leave earlier today” Rose said. She paused for a couple of seconds, as she had something in her mind. “Miss Myrtle, can I ask you a question?” she finally spoke “What do you think of him? I like him so much but you know, sometimes – this might sound silly – I wonder if it’s meant to be.”

“You want to know if he’s your Prince Charming, huh?” miss Myrtle said smiling. “It’s not silly dearie. I understand, I was a hopeless romantic too. You know, I had a boyfriend back in the day, Henry, who was just like your Jared. Minus the tattoos and the earring of course, it was a different time back then. We were going to get married, but unfortunately the war took him. And let me tell you, the way he looked at me was just like the way that young man looks at you whenever I see him walking in here.”

“Thank you miss Myrtle! And I’m so sorry about Henry, I didn’t know” Rose said.

“Oh don’t worry my sweet girl, I know we’ll see each other again someday, it’s just a matter of time. I only hope you and Jared will grow old together, that’s the part I regret missing the most. Oh, I see him coming, time to get ready dear!” miss Myrtle said cheerfully.

“Hey you” Rose said to Jared “give me five minutes and I’m ready”

“It’s ok babe, I’ll just wait here with my second favorite baker in the whole world”

“Oh, you little charmer” miss Myrtle giggled “wait and see what I have prepared for you today”

When Rose got ready, Jared and miss Myrtle were still having one of their usual happy conversations.

“Well miss Myrtle, it’s been a pleasure as always. I’ll try that trick you told me. See you in a couple of days!” Jared shouted as he and Rose were leaving the bakery.


The festival was great fun, and Rose and Jared had a good time. Rose’s favorite part was the photo booth where they took some silly pictures which Rose insisted should be hanged in her bedroom – Jared on the other hand was not so sure about it.

When he went to the bathroom for a minute, Rose spotted a little baby girl sitting on the ground. “What a little cutie pie you are” she said as she approached her.

Suddenly she realized that the baby’s eyes were the same as her boyfriend’s. “Could that be…” she thought, but had no time to finish the thought as the baby’s mother, quick as a flash, snatched the baby.

“She doesn’t like strangers” the mother sneered.

“Oh, I’m so sorry” Rose said, a little surprised at this unfriendly behavior. “I’m Rose. What’s her name? She’s very pretty.”

“Oh I know who you are. That loser sent you to convince me to let him see my daughter. Well you tell him over my dead body!”

“Oh no, nothing like that. I don’t think he even knows you’re here. So is that Jared’s daughter? She’s beautiful, you must be really proud” Rose tried to calm her down.

“Are you deaf? She’s mine, not his! I will die before I let his sorry ass near her!”

“What’s going on here?” Jared said as he came back, but something in his look was saying that he already knew.

“You know what” he continued “don’t even bother telling me Claire, I won’t fight you this time. Just know that Rose doesn’t deserve to be treated like this, and if I catch you talking to her like that again you’ll be sorry. We’ll talk about Emily another time, be sure of that” he said in a menacing tone.

As they were leaving, Claire turned to Rose.

“Look I’m sorry about before, you seem like a nice girl. But don’t think he’s going to change for you. He’ll play for a while and before you know it he’ll get bored and you’ll be in my place, hopefully without a child. Just remember that.”

“I’m sorry too, that you feel this way. But just because he didn’t love you enough doesn’t mean that he’ll never love anyone.” Rose replied, a little surprised at how confident she sounded.

Still, a part of Claire’s words got to her. As she was leaving, she looked at her and Emily and couldn’t help but feel sad. “Another broken family, poor child” she thought.

Rose was still a little upset when Jared took her home. Still, she prefered not to talk about it and focus on more pleasant topics.

“You know, Emily is really beautiful and seems like a good kid. I’m glad I met her.”

“Well she’s my daughter babe, of course she’d be beautiful” he said proudly.

“So” Rose said “I was thinking about our next date. I’d…really like it to be special.”

Jared’s eyes lit up. “I know just the place to take you doll. It will be the best and most exclusive restaurant in Sunset Valley. I’ll make reservations for, say, tomorrow?”

“Yes, tomorrow I won’t have to work so that will be great. But I had no idea there was such a place in Sunset Valley”

“Oh, there is. I really hope you’ll like it. Well look at you all sleepy. I’m off babe, time to let you go to bed. I had a great time, as always. I’ll see you tomorrow.”

Tomorrow was going to be perfect, they were both certain of it.

  1. Hmmm….the fight over Emily is going to be an ugly one.

    Jared and Rose do look cute together. But, while Claire sounds more than a little bitter, Rose should keep her in mind. Right now Jared thinks Rose is new. But what happens when he gets used to her? I wonder…

    1. well said, fluffymao. I was happy to hear Rose stand up for herself and happy to hear Jared have some decent boundaries with Claire, but I don’t think that means everything is hunky-dory. I think when things get tough, Jared will continue to struggle hard and cause disasters for everyone around him. I think Miss Myrtle would be a great friend for him to help him work through some things.

      1. Miss Myrtle does seem to have a very different relationship with Jared then every other woman he’s ever met. So maybe she can talk some sense into him, whatever “sense” turns out to be. Otherwise…yeah, it’s gonna be ugly.

  2. Jared and miss Myrtle have a cute relationship/dynamic XD And what luck, to run into your ex & baby whilst on a date with another girl, poor Jared. Hopefully Claire’s words won’t worry Rose too much, she was already hesitant to get back with Jared at all~

    1. She was hesitant but not anymore, we’ll see if she was right about it! 🙂 Miss Myrtle and Jared are very cute together, she sees Rose almost like a daughter so Jared is her favorite son-in-law lol!!

  3. Yay, a new chapter!
    Miss Myrtle is so adorable, I can’t get enough of her. And she’s also nice enough for Jared, which is a bit surprising.
    Oh, Claire, my simmie, poor woman, when her only child ever was lost by a driving car. I keep reminiscing these times when I read your story- and how my Jared was way less nicer, lol. Anyway, I can see how Claire keeps this anger to her ex bottled up, but, looking at how it ended for her, the future of Rose’s relationship may be not all roses (smoke ‘n’ roses, I would say). I hope he isn’t up to hurt her really badly, yet he already did once.
    That last sentence, I wonder. I hope that the contrary of what they thought won’t happen. Oh, maybe that’s just me, I’m always foreboding, as you know, haha.

    1. Hmmm, you’re not completely wrong about the last sentence, but I can’t say anything more lol! 😉 Poor Claire, I feel really bad for her! Although I believe her hot-headed trait didn’t really help her relationship with Jared. But then again, Jared is usually the problem lol! We’ll see how everything goes! 🙂 (Can’t wait to read your new chapter too! 😁)

  4. I love how Miss Myrtle and Jared became friends! That’s so cute 🙂
    I think it’s sad how Claire ended up like that with Emily, but it’s probably advisable for Rose to be cautious and think about what she said. I’m still not 100% sure about Jared…
    Great chapter! ❤

    1. I love miss Myrtle! And to think that when Jared first met her he rolled the wish to beat her up lol! Fortunately her nice personality put a stop to this! 😁 Well, I think it’s safe to say that nobody can be 100% sure about Jared, he’s an unpredictable one! Thank you so much! ❤

  5. Just a hint – there is a code for turning off sims’ thoughts and plumbobs- hideheadlineeffects on , you only have to type testingcheatsenabled true first. It comes in handy sometimes. I thought that maybe you wouldn’t like to show how hungry Claire was at the moment, haha.

    1. Haha, thank you! 😁 I contemplated about adding the photo or not, but in the end I was like oh well lol! But I’ll do it next time I play; those thought bubbles usually bug me to no end (although sometimes they make for some epic photos lol)! ❤

      1. Haha, I’m especially pissed by the plumbob and when it gets in the way, generally I always play with the headline effects. The one time I didn’t as I forgot was back in the very beginning of generation 1 and Ethan literally talked about sunset all the time so I had to include it. Maybe someday I should take these first photos again as the quality is still killing me, lol. Sometimes they really do for epic photos! I am such a cheater for my story, I change clothes with Master Controller, so it’s less laggy, I invite sims with Master Controller, so I’m sure they’ll come because they’re forced, you can also fulfill all their needs with MC and my favorite option – “make active” without going into the edit town mode. I also have the mod for sims automatically changing when they’re back from work, for no sleep zzs and not to mention how I cheat abilities and how I cheat with only testingcheatsenabled. Also finally I can reset this annoying ice cream truck, haha.

        1. Oh I know, I do a lot of cheating too! Currently my household owns at least three houses and two venues, in all of which I have planted the pose player somewhere. And the MC commands “invite over” and “add sim” are a regular thing in my game lol! 😂 Hmmm and I really need to install the no zzs mod, I always forget! Sims are so cute sometimes when they sleep and those damn zzs ruin everything lol!

    1. Well, the truth is that often Jared himself doesn’t help with his image lol!! But yes, miss Myrtle is very sweet and kind of sees beneath the surface. Rose wants to help, let’s see if things will be easy for them! 🙂

  6. Now that I see how good-hearted and sweet Miss Myrtle is, I feel so sorry that Lia Rasi passed away early on in my story. They both give me the same feeling, I love elderly characters ❤

    I'm worried for Rose. Something tells me he's gonna hurt her again…. And I think that Emily is better off with her mom! Jared doesn't look to be the right person to raise children, but I could be mistaken. Nice chapter!

    1. Thank you so much! ❤ I love elderly characters too! And I get what you're saying about the same feeling with Lia and miss Myrtle 🙂 As for Jared and Rose… I can't say much but maybe you're right to be worried :/ Thanks for the comment! 🙂 ❤

  7. Haha Miss Myrtle seems nice! But I still don’t completely trust Jared, especially after Rose met Claire and her child. It’ll take a lot to make me trust him after what he’s done… But he does seem to really like Rose, so this is confusing for me hehe
    Great chapter ❤️

    1. Thank you so much! 😁 Miss Myrtle is one of my favorite characters! ❤ Jared does have feelings for Rose, but he still got his temper issues to solve…yeah, I wouldn't trust him completely either if I were you! Thank you so much for reading and commenting! 🙂

  8. Awww… Miss Myrtle is so sweet. I hope lots of good and happy things happen to her!

    Not sure how I feel about Claire. I kind of understand her, but then I’m confused by her as well. I feel the same way about Jared.
