Ruby stopped by the Perrin house to introduce Allen to his new sister Erica, and to share the news of another child already being on the way. Turns out Ruby and Isaac are not the only ones expecting – Juanita is pregnant as well!
Ruby is not phased at all – I suppose far stranger things have happened to her in life. She actually seems rather excited about the prospect of becoming a grandma.
With a child on the way, Juanita and Allen decide to make things official. Juanita is ecstatic – a whole day of celebrating her! Well, her and Allen, presumably… but mainly her!
Meanwhile Allen gets to know his little sister a bit better. She makes an adorable bridesmaid and is overjoyed to be a part of the wedding. This little girl appreciates everything so much! I swear I would have no idea she has the gloomy trait if the control panel didn’t claim so – I’ve seen nothing but a huge smile on her face ever since she’s arrived.
Juanita: “So Isaac, are you jealous that it’s Allen who gets to marry me? This could have been you, but it’s way too late now, look at my massive pregnant belly! I’m having Allen’s baby and you’ve lost your chance for good, no matter how much you desire me!”
Isaac just bursts into a fit of laughter: “I genuinely have tears in my eyes!”
Juanita is oblivious: “I knew it!”
Pace: “I hate weddings. Yet another man is taken away from his freedom…”
Meanwhile, Ruby shows off her baby bump to Allen in a much more subtle way.
Allen: “You look great mom!”
Ruby: “I feel great! I could barely believe being alive again, let alone being able to create another life!”
The ceremony is short and sweet.
All of the guests are touched… well, apart from Pace and that random guy in the yellow blazer.
Pace: “Life’s rough…”
Erica: “This is the best day ever!”
Pace: “No offense kid, but you’re so not my kind of bridesmaid!”
It appears that the news of the event must have spread quite a bit, since some of the guests have come from afar…
Elder: “What a beautiful ceremony! Legacy weddings are always such a joyous event!”
Juanita: “You’re right, this is a legacy wedding! I’m a part of the legacy family now, one of the Bloomer clan!”
Allen: “Honey, our last name is Perrin…”
Elder: “Congratulations on your wedding, and the lovely bride!”
Allen smiles: “She has her moments.”
Elder: “There’s actually something I’ve been hoping to ask you – I’m looking for my son Free-Jon and two of his friends, they’ve been missing.”
Allen: “You’re in luck, both myself and my, err, stepfather work at the local police station here in Newcrest. Let me introduce you and see what we can do.”
Elder: “Oh, I haven’t realised you’re Allen’s stepfather, you’re so young! But you know what, there’s nothing wrong with falling in love with a woman that’s a bit older than you – believe me, it runs in my family!”
Isaac chooses not to delve into a long-winded explanation and nods instead: “Yes, I couldn’t be luckier!”
Soon enough, he switches into full on detective mode and takes a detailed report from Elder. When he has all the known information, he promises Elder that he’ll do everything in his power to find his missing son.
Erica: “Where is Free?”
Pace: “No woman can tame me! I am free!”
The day draws to a close, and it’s time for the Bloomers to head back home. The wedding and running into a man looking for his son has made them all a bit emotional.
Isaac: “My sweet Ruby, every day I wake up and feel so blessed to be with you and the wonderful family you have given me… even though Juanita is now a part of it!”
The very next day, Isaac discusses the three missing sims with the chief.
He compiles all evidence and researches all clues. He can’t find any promising leads, and ultimately, he unfortunately has to conclude that Freezer Bunny Wolff Tea is not in his town.
“So Isaac, are you jealous that it’s Allen who gets to marry me? This could have been you, but it’s way too late now, look at my massive pregnant belly! I’m having Allen’s baby and you’ve lost your chance for good, no matter how much you desire me” LOL oh Juanita.
Woo Elder made it to the wedding!
Erica is so sweet and cute. It’s great that she doesn’t let her emotions control her.

Yup, Elder even had the “honour” of meeting Juanita 😀
My favorite part was
“Where is free?”
“No woman can tame me! I am free!”

I love this! How fun! It’s cool to see how laid-back Elder always is! I’m with Megg–I love the “Where’s Free!” part. So funny. Well, you handled the wedding crasher beautifully and graciously! Thanks so much for taking part in this epic! 🙂

Megg: Hehe I couldn’t resist the opportunity with that one 🙂
Cathy Tea: Wedding crashers come with the legacy territory 🙂 Thank YOU for creating this awesome opportunity for simmers to by united by Elder roaming in their game 🙂
Lindsay: Thank you! I saw you asked the same question in my thread so I answered it there. The short answer is he did not have a formal job but was still the breadwinner as he earned a lot with his gardening and fishing.
Now that I’ve read the chapters leading up to this and know who is who, I love this even more! Thanks for having Elder stop by!
How cool that you got to experience this chapter twice from two entirely different angles! 🙂
Elder was an absolute pleasure, he can crash all of my sims weddings any time!
Another cute chapter! Juanita is something else! And Erica is THE cutest kid!!
Lol Juanita definitely was quite a character haha!
Haha Pace cracked me up! xD
Ruby looks so lovely in her black dress. That pregnancy is really making her glow; she’s beautiful!
And yay for an Elder sighting! ❤
What a cast of characters! Juanita needs to get over herself, seriously. And I’m sensing some type if repression from Pace. lol
Lol I know, this legacy has seen some unique extended family members haha!
I’m not sure who Elder is, but I read through comments and get the idea that CT uploaded him to for people to use him in their stories?
Also the “where is free?” Comment escaped me a bit too. Though I liked Pace’s response.
Juanita and your commentary of her is always a hoot!!
Oh, it was a community project CathyTea did, her sim Elder travelled various game saves to find his son Free. He hopped from game to game, breaking the fourth wall a bit and all.
