Round 14: Sharpe Family

This is a new house...sort of...the last update was round 12 when Ben Cipriani (sole caretaker of his late fiance's illegitimate child Eden Sharpe) passed away and young Eden went off to university. As a player I am not sure of the rules on this pirticular issue, but am not going to stress, she is the heiress to the house, so she is getting the house (including the previous spot in the rotation).

You may remember the hosue looking something like this when Eden left for uni...

When she returned, she had the funds to expand the house. This was the result...

And tho more upgrades were planned for the future, the new layout allowed for a more updated and spacious feel.

It had been a while since Eden had been home and she did not realize how much she had missed it until she returned. First and foremost, she powered up her servo Zola and greeted her warmly. It was time to get settled in.

When everything was unpacked, Eden was exhausted, but she spent a minute before bed talking to Ben. Well, not actually to Ben, but to his painting. It was the closest thing she had to her father as his ashes had been sent to the cemetary when she left for college although she could feel his presence in the house watching over her and she was thankful for that.

The next morning Eden invited her hubby-to-be over for his first visit to what would be the home that they were planning to spend the rest of thier lives together in.

She spent most nights with Joel, he claimed he did not mind the commute from umiversity, so the two spent as much time together as possible planning for their wedding.

She even got a new hair do, a slight change, but it was the first time she had changed her look in years.

So it seemed that everything was just going to go smoothly up to the wedding, that is until...

Eden had not been feeling well for a while, chalking it up to a cold, she thought nothing of it. But when she came home from work one afternoon she knew that this couldn't be the flu.

Eden tried to relax through her pregnancy and actually found the down time very effective for skilling.

She was lucky to have the help and support of Zola.

And Joel made sure he was around as much as possible.

When the time came, the couple was blessed with a beautiful blonde haired daughter they named Courtney (also the first generation 4 baby in Rose Island!).

Soon, Joel would be back from college and Eden had Zola as an extra pair of hands until then. But she was glad for a few days "alone" with her daughter. For once she realized how hard it had been, and at the same time how wonderful for Ben when he raised her all on his own.
