The beach was easily one of my favourite places in Sunset Valley. After we had graduated from University, Rose and I had moved to Sunset Valley, the weather being perfect for her gardening, and for me. I could never get enough from being in the sun.
However, today, I had other things on my mind, and couldn’t appreciate the beauty of the beach.
After I took the ‘cure’ I was eventually disinherited, though Mum and Dad still helped to pay for my university costs. It had been Uncle Ambro who had done it, and Mum and Dad wanted to make sure I was well looked after. We had visited them for a week in Monnlight Falls in one holiday break, and they had liked Rose.
Graduation was amazing.
It was so good to see all my hard work acknowledged and to have a qualification, and I knew Rose and Faith were the same. It had been an awesome day, and the end of university.
Of course, things didn’t change completely. Faith also moved to Sunset Valley with us, a famous artist who lived there taking her under her wing, to help her and mentor her. Currently Faith was flatting with Rose and I, though, if plans for today went well, I knew she wouldn’t want to live with us much longer.
“I love you,” I said quietly, and Rose smiled her wide beautiful smile.
“Mmm, I love you too,” Rose said quietly. I grinned.
I had decided to go the whole hog and go down on one knee, and Rose looked down at me as if she could hardly believe it.
“Rose, you are the best thing in my life. You are all I will ever need, everything else is just a bonus. I want to spend the rest of my life with you, even if that life is much shorter than yours now. I love you. Will you marry me?” I said.
“Oh, Lia…” she said, gasping, “Oh! Yes!”
I placed the ring on her finger and stood up, Rose flinging her arms around me. I was going to marry Rose. My life was amazing. It was going just where I wanted it, I was happy. Life was great.
So this is the end of the Gilberts. I will be posting again, I want to do some ‘author commentary’ because wow things have turned out so differently from how I imagined at different points.
I will probably still play Adalia and Rose, and post some pictures on my simblr which I also post other sims pictures. At this point I’m not going to start another legacy, as I need to continue the Kleoses, which I’ve let fall by the wayside as I’ve tried to finish the Gilberts, and I have an ISBI on my simblr. I might start another legacy at a later date, or I mihgt just wait until sims 4 if I actually get it.
Thank you to everyone who read the Gilberts. It was always something that I did for myself, as something to enjoy for myself, and I am always so amazed and flattered that others would enjoy it. You are all amazing.
Before things get too emotional and soppy I’ll end this author’s note with a huge thank you and a promise of author commentary and an explanation of what I’d planned each generation if the generations turned out differently.
