The Bloomer Legacy: 4.8 Midnight Surprise

September 23, 2015 The Plumbob 14 Comments

Chell was feeling accomplished. She had a productive day at the lab, she was finally able to finish building her rocket and to finish off the successful day, she started on a wooden sculpture. She loved her life.


She was just about to go to bed as her phone rang.

Knox: “Hi Chell, could you meet me over at the park at midnight?”

Chell: “Knox? Is everything ok?”

Knox: “Everything’s more than ok! I’ll see you soon. Oh, and wear something nice!”

Chell was confused. Knox was not spontaneous. What could be going on? She quickly got changed and headed across the street.

The park seemed empty. Where was he?


And then she spotted him.


Knox: “A beautiful rose for a beautiful woman. Now you can’t say I don’t do romance!”

Chell laughed. But before she could reply, Knox dropped down to his knee.


Knox: “Chell Bloomer, you’ve made this grumpy bearded man happier than I ever thought I could be. I’m not one for big romantic speeches, but I do know I went to spend the rest of my life with you. Will you marry me?”


Chell: “Of course I will! This is all so beautiful Knox. And the ring… the crystal is a plumbite! That’s such a rare collectible – I’ve been trying to get hold of one for analysis for ages!”


Knox: “I hope you won’t put the ring under a microscope! Actually, scratch that, I hope you do. You wouldn’t be the woman I love if you didn’t.”

Chell: “Actually, there’s something I need to show you!”


Chell: “My rocket! It’s finally finished!”

Knox: “Very impressive! Have you taken it for a test run yet?”


Chell: “No, but I have an idea…”


Even Booker and Keiko can’t beat this!




Sorry if my writing is hard to read, your dad and I are on a boat in Sunlit Tides at the moment. We’re headed for the main port, because…

We’re coming home! Congratulations on your engagement. Knox is a wonderful man, and we know he’ll make you happy.

We wouldn’t miss your wedding for the world!

See you soon!

Mom and Dad



When Peter and Lilah returned, they made a brief stop at the Agustin house first (made all the more brief by the fact Daniel was insisting on only wearing his underwear).

They’d all gotten so old, but Peter and Lilah didn’t feel old; they felt refreshed and full of new experiences. But the one they were about to embark on was going to be even better; their firstborn getting married!


Chell: “Mom, dad, you remember Knox?”

Peter: “Of course, it’s good to see you again Knox!”

Lilah: “And you must be Keiko!”

Keiko: “Nice to meet you Mr and Mrs Bloomer!”

Keiko was nervous. She wanted to make a good impression on Booker’s parents; while Booker had always proclaimed that the legacy is his now, it seemed like there was a shift in the dynamics of the house once Peter and Lilah had returned.


Booker: “So mom, how was Sunlit Tides? You didn’t mention much about it in your last postcard.”

Lilah: “It was beautiful of course, though a bit less adventurous than the other locations we’ve visited. So many of the tourists there were such old farts!”

Peter laughed: “Yes darling, nothing like us!”


Lilah: “Anyway, none of the places we’ve seen were as wonderful as the sight I’m seeing now. All of my babies all grown up, leading the lives of their design. It’s good to be home!”


They spent the rest of the night talking, laughing and sharing. Together as a family, once again. What an epic adventure!

    First! I love the way you have the tables pushed together so everyone fits! That is just awesome.

    Second…yay for Chell and Knox! He’s such a cutie pie that I can’t even handle.

    And third!! OMG!!! They’re home :)

      Knox is awesome! He’s such a perfect fit for Chell, they always look incredibly happy together. If you remember my Agustin speed dating, in the lounge when I commented on the “bearded hottie”, that was actually Knox! I moved him onto an empty lot to prevent him from being culled in the hopes that either Yenn or Chell will meet him and hit it off with him someday… Boy that worked well! :)

    Huzzah! I’ve caught up with The Bloomers, and now ONWARD to the rest of the stories I need to catch up to. I also STILL haven’t gone in-game to check on the Waite crew… HA!

    Peter and Lilah are home! How great is that. I loved their postcards but I missed them so much! And Chell is quickly becoming one of the greatest sims I’ve ever read about. She’s so adorable and awesome. I like her personality and her style and her fiance… xD

      I’m very fond of Chell, she’s so awesome in her own way. And her and Knox are really a great match, they seem to make each other very happy :)

    Maybe Kaylan told Daniel how people always just wear underwear in his family lol

      Probably. Or he’s a distant Turpis relative himself. Back when I played his household when him and Erica when they were newlyweds, he always played the guitar only in his underwear. I think he finds it liberating.

    It’s so nice to see the whole family together again. I think the postcard idea was great on your part.
