You all remember that we left off with Elizale and Kirsten fighting with Ben's children, Sian and Cordelia. In a momentous decision, Deanna declared that since her brother had sacrificed so much to help the Legacy continue, he would be included in the Legacy from now on.
That meant that one of his daughters would stay with the Legacy house with Elizale and Kirsten! Yet Deanna locked the four warring children in one room and took Ben, Kyla and herself out to the movies. When they returned, the children had decided:
That Elizale, Kirsten and Cordelia would stay and Sian would move out! Kyla and Ben were glad that they'd watch their child grow up in the fabled Legacy Estate.
Shortly after this decision was made, grief over took the family. Ben was paid a visit from the Reaper, but he left knowing that his family would forever live with his sister's children and her descendants. His first wife Cassandra was on hand to take his hand and guide him onward.
The young women all matured into adults and sought jobs- and husbands! Elizale married Kirk first, she and her husband who welcomed the first daughter, Sassinak. Barely after Sassinak's first birthday, Cordelia and her husband, Dale, welcomed their daughter, Riley. Sassinak and Riley were declared the heiresses after many years as only children with the whole of the estate as their play ground. The cousins were raised with the attention of their grandmother and parents, wanting for nothing as after so many aunts and uncles working for so long, the family was starting to amount a fortune.
The fortune diminished when Kirsten decided to move to Smance to pursue her passion for art. She was kept abreast of the family's events as Elizale and Kirk welcomed another daughter, Torrence!
As the only boy, Riggan quickly discovered that his household wasn't like many his friends where girls played with dolls and kitchen sets. His cousins all had dirt bikes and played in motorbike races just like he and his friends!
Tragedy once again darkened the Edwards' door when Cordelia's husband, Dale, was called to the Great Simbeyond.
Sadly, the death of Dale rocked the young children's worlds. Dale had been vibrant and dynamic right to the end, playing first base in family games of baseball! Yet the parents grieved in private and did their best to help the children cope. As life began to get back on track, Cordelia awoke to a jolt- she was pregnant! It seemed that a bit of Dale was still with them. The young mother did her best to help raise her daughter, son and nieces while coping with the notion of a child that would never know its' father.
There's not much time to think on the situation though, all too quickly Cordelia became a single mother to another child!
One way of coping is the arrival of good news- such as the birth of Cordelia and Dale's third child, a daughter named Orchid! How will this bustling family grow? Will the cousins bicker and cause a divide as Elizale, Kirsten, Sian and Cordelia did or will they remain the best of friends? Stay tuned! A glimpse of the future...
There is a plan in place, reader, to put some spring back in Ben's step! Ben's sisters have set him up with the nanny, Kyla.
However, the wedding hopes are facing rocky waters! We're steer you around the curves. First, the couple first began to bond over Deanna's babies,
- as Kyla hadn't realized that Ben was such a softie for his nieces! The two begin to go out dancing together and then start to bond over egg plants (weird thing to bond over, eh?) Yet Kyla thinks that Ben has been withholding himself from her. He does finally reveal how he fell in love with Cassandra- and how devastated the family was at her death. He confides that the ghost who has been watching Kyla is the Family's Founder- and this time, he's going to abide by her decision.
"So you'll only be with me if your great grandmother approves of me?" What a startling proclaimation!
Yet- - Micha envelops Kyla in a warm, happy glow, prompting ben to propose to the love of his life! They take no chances and immediately start the wedding!
However some guy we didn't know came over and decided to drop dead. Wonderful!
It freaks every one out, they leave and it ruins the wedding party. He does stay to play on the video game... night after night...Ben and Kyla have a wonderful time and soon welcome two baby girls to grow up beside Hieress Elizale and her twin sister, Kirsten. Welcome Sian and Cordelia! This is Sian, held by Hieress Elizale.
Andrae and Deanna soon grow up into Elders as soon as Elizale and Kirsten grow up into teens. The twins Sian and Cordelia heat things up, often causing spats with thier older cousins. This causes ackward situations when the girls pull thier parents into the bickering! When Elizale and Kirsten grow into adults, they insist that one of thier cousins move out. It's stressing poor, fragile Kirsten out! All of the ghosts also scare gentle Kirsten. Kyla is also upset when the moment she and Ben age into Elders, the ghost of Cassandra appears and scares her!
The house that Deanna and Ben labored to make into a home is about to be divided! Will Deanna have to say goodbye to the brother whose always been there for her? Will the girls draw the nieghborhood into thier feud? Stay tuned for the adult lives of Elizale, Kirsten, Sian and Cordelia!
The feuding truly is mounting- I'm moving out someone soon. Who do you think should be moved out?
All of the outfits pictured here (and more!) are availiable for download. Let me know what you think.)
Previously, Ben found love and happiness with his wife, Cassandra. Unbeknown to every one- save the ghost of Micha- Cassandra knew that she was about to die. A last disagreement between husband and wife leaves Ben emotionally devastated.Deanna, Heiress of the Edwards, does her best to help her elder brother grieve. She feels guilty for falling in love with handyman Andre while Ben is still emotionally raw. However, Ben manages to grin and bear it as he once promised her when she was still a child. During the wedding of Deanna and Andre, Andre starts behaving oddly! Oh no, will Deanna suffer the fate of childlessness as well?
Psych. Turns out Andrew just matured into an Adult and scared the bejeesus out of everyone in the process. Way to win over the in laws, buster.
Meawhile while Felicity helps her sister through her first pregnancy, they arrive on the subject of Ben's mourning for Cassandra. They all miss her, but the sisters fear that Ben might not recover from his loss. Suddenly, Deanna gets an idea... ... and calls a nanny to care for the upcoming child.
The nanny, Kyra, is intelligent, quirky and great with kids. She's also understanding to deal with some pretty rotten accomodations, like a ghost who sleeps in her bed and studies her face for age lines. "I'm twenty seven!" Kyra screams at the ghost of Micha. "Get out of my bed, I want to sleep! Your grand daughter will be up at four, seven and nine, and heaven help you if I miss the darling's feeding." The arrival of Deanna's babies- twin girls- is imminient. Joy is in the air! Enough, even, for Ben to begin to perk up. It helps that Kyra seems to like the same music that he does...
Next time: Welcome Deanna's babies- and mysterious new additions to the family!
