The Bloomer Legacy: 4.2 My Home Is My Castle

September 10, 2015 The Plumbob 20 Comments

Booker met Keiko Oshiro on one of his daily runs. She was a head turner, so he stopped his jog immediately to talk to her. Turns out she was the daughter of the librarian at the Captain Duckhorse Library.

Her last name meant big castle. And Keiko wanted to live in one.

2

Keiko: “You mean you live in the mansion across the street from here?”

Booker: “Oh yeah. You wanna have a tour?”

Keiko: “Are you kidding?”

3

Booker: “Welcome to my humble home!”

Keiko: “I can’t believe this! I have to take a selfie to prove that I was here!”

4

Booker: “I think this I the best bit! The roof top jacuzzi with a view of the city. Pretty sweet, right?”

5

Booker wasn’t sure what Keiko replied, or if she replied anything at all; he was too distracted by how good she looked in a bikini.

6

Keiko: “I’m at the Bloomer estate. In an actual hot tub. This is surreal!”

7

Booker: She’s so dreamy!

8

Keiko: “Why don’t I give you a bit of a massage, Booker? Your muscles must be sore from all that running you did earlier. Wow, look at that bicep!”

9

That was enough for Booker to make his move. Surely she was interested in him?

10

Keiko knew exactly what he was doing, and she didn’t mind one bit. There was no way she wasn’t coming back to this posh estate!

11

They shared their first kiss… and many more after that. By sunrise, Booker asked Keiko to be his girlfriend. Of course she said yes!

12

Booker: “Look at the view of the skyline form here…”

Keiko: “It’s awesome. But Booker, I’ve been here all night and you still haven’t given me a tour of the house!”

Booker: “Well I was waiting for the light, duh!”

13

“The part you’ve seen already is the outdoor gym on the rooftop of the main building. I’m here all the time.”

14

“Downstairs, we have the open plan living area. There’s the sitting part with a flat screen TV and all that jazz…”

15

“… and a kitchen/dining area with a lot of old photos of relatives.”

16

“My mom and dad’s bedroom with an ensuite is downstairs too. They’re going travelling soon though, so soon enough I’ll be the master of the house.”

17

“The upstairs landing is kind of empty at the moment, but we do have a chess table and the family aquarium there. They say the goldfish has been with the family ever since the first generation! Anyway, there’s also an indoor gym area with a massage table at the end of the landing.”

18

“Then of course there’s my room with an en suite. I’m the next heir so it’s pretty nice pad!”

19

“Oh, and there’s an office up there two, but I barely ever go there.”

23

“Once you go outside to the garden, there’s a little entertaining area with a bar, a bit of space for yoga and a meditation corner… my family is really into wellness you see….”

24

“… which is why we also have a sauna in the basement.”

25

“Once you pass the pool area, the two little bungalows on each side of the entrance belong to my sisters. The one near the second hot tub is Yenn’s.”

26

“Don’t tell her I said that, but she’s sort of sentimental, so she keeps a lot of family photos and weird nicknacks around.”

27

“And it’s all kind of old fashioned there. But whatever, it’s not like she lets people in her part of the house anyway.”

28

Yenn’s condo

29

“The last building belongs to my other sister, Chell. She has a bunch of nerdy things on her roof terrace.”

30

“But at least her place isn’t as cluttered as Yenn’s.”

31

“And then she has a living section where she does all sorts of other nerdy stuff.”

32

Chell’s condo

“Life here at the Bloomer residence isn’t too shabby at all!”

    The house is pure awesomeness. I love the interior. Especially the basement, Yenn’s and Chell’s condo. Booker didn’t waste his time getting himself a girlfriend so fast. I guess it’s his own speed dating. 😀

    And again, while I was waiting for a new chapter I made something for you. I had never ever made any poster/book cover thingy before, so it’s probably not perfect. I hope you can find a use for it. A little promotion of your legacy can never hurt, right? 😉

      Holy cow! That is epic! I love it so much, you’re awesome! Thank you for all of your epic creations :)

      Just to let you know, I’m going away for a long weekend so the next update won’t be up till Tuesday evening. There will be more updates to compensate for that next week though!

      As for Booker’s girlfriend, I think she wanted to snatch him up while he’s still available haha

      I may temporarily use it as the feature image for the chapter index for some time :) Though I might need to crop it, since the orientation of the feature images in the blog template I’m using is a landscape one rather than a portrait one. Still. I definitely need to figure out a use for it, it’s too awesome to not be used :)

    I’m really happy you like it. :) I was having fun creating it. Maybe I will make a poster for every generation. We will see. The sims are too good looking not to play with in Photoshop.
    Please, use the picture from the second link. I noticed I got your name mispelled at the first one.

    That house is perfect! I love how you take their personality into consideration when you build their houses. It makes them so unique.

      Thank you! I always tailor the rooms to the sims that live there, I want the soace to reflect them :)

    This makes me want to completely redo the Skinner house! Ash could have his own little place. Omg. It would be epic. Can’t wait to get home now!

    Great story so far. I love it soooooo much!

      Wow, you’ve powered through this quickly! I’m so happy you’ve been enjoying the Bloomers!

      The separate house sections are really cool when you have multiple adults living in the same home. I wouldn’t have come up with it if I wasn’t building this as a future gym and spa though, the main reason why I built it like this is so that I can have a separate gym, spa and changing rooms/showers/toilets once the gym is built. But it actually works great for the current household :)

      Hehe! Around 12k a week I believe… So far they can afford it, though we don’t earn as mush as we used to with Peter and Lilah (AKA book royalties) out of the house travelling.

    That is a spectacular home! It must have taken you ages to build and decorate that! But I think it’s well worth it. *feels like Keiko and wants to live there too*

      It really did! Probably like 6 hours, if not more – I built and furnished it over three game sessions.

      It works pretty well if you lock doors haha! I just couldn’t handle moving anyone out this generation but I wanted them to have some form of privacy :)

    I am reserving my comments on Keiko until further chapters prove she’s not after something.
