This chapter is brought to you by “Boromir Needs Attention”
Meanwhile, Kelsi is making friends. She keeps evangelizing about vegetarianism. It seems to be working, contrary to what is shown here.
Serena is at level nine of her career. She’s talking to and researching plants a bunch now to finish her gardening skill.
Kelsi meanwhile finds herself doing her homework and working on his aspiration on her own. Serena isn’t as easy to cajole into a game of chess.
There didn’t seem to be any luck with Arwen, so we had Boromir try with Shelob.
Got a second castle school project. Kelsi did a lot better on this one!
She also made friends with the monster under her bed.
Bathtime! Arwen and Shelob both inherited their father’s fear of the bathtub. Boromir loves it.
Serena does make time for her daughter. She isn’t quite as good at playing dolls as Howard was, but it’s passable.
Arwen kept begging for a walk, so Serena took her out on a jog.
This is Serena maxing out gardening! She just needs to max flower arranging now. So close to a fridge, I can taste it!
Kelsi is being productive too. She manages to finish the whiz kid aspiration, but she won’t have time to do any others.
Now that her gardening is done, Serena is basically tethered to the flower bench.
She does have time to plant and grow a Cowplant though. Bessie means that she’s finished the Freelance Botanist aspiration! She picks the animal one next, but we don’t really expect to finish it.
Kelsi invites friends over pretty frequently, especially after I let her waylay every child that passed by.
I took my eyes off her for one second. Just one! And BOOM. Essence.
Even though I don’t expect her to finish it, Kelsi has been working on the creativity aspiration. Shelob and Arwen would rather she didn’t.
I forgot I had a mod that automatically assigns aspirations and traits upon aging up. So I was confused about the random teen in the house, until I realized it was Kelsi all grown up! Here she is after her makeover. She’s gained the serial romantic aspiration…and dislikes children.
We’ll deal with that later. For now she gets her hands wet with gardening, since she needs to get two skills up to level five out of gardening, fishing, and cooking.
She also takes over taking Arwen on a jog whenever she begs for a walk.
As we still lack a fridge, the only other skill she can work towards is fishing, so she does that. She gets up to level 3 pretty quickly.
We’ll end with Serena maxing out flower arranging! She just needs to get her promotion and all of her tasks are complete! She’ll have plenty of time to enjoy herself now.
