Phul wasn’t sure what he was doing, after all, it had only been a few hours since his late wife’s funeral had ended and here he was with Valencia… First they were just hugging and she was just comforting him. Then he had turned into her and kissed her and now… What was he doing? Valencia had a boyfriend, and they weren’t even in that kind of relationship.
They made love with nothing but fire light to accompany them, and then they went up to Valencia’s room. It was going to be a long night figuring out where they stood as a couple. Soon it was decided Valencia would leave her boyfriend and Phul and she would get married before anything scandalous leaked to their friends and neighbors. Of course, Phul and Valencia would have to wait an acceptable amount of time given that Gwendolyn had just passed, pregnant, no less.
Valencia drifted off to sleep but Phul stayed awake thinking. Did this make him a horrible person? Didn’t statistics say that if a man was happily married and his wife passed he would move on quickly? Didn’t his son need a mother? And… what if this night with Valencia resulted in a pregnancy? Eventually he drifted off as well, and woke with her missing but a note on the bedside table. She had gone to break up with her boyfriend and she would return later.
A long long long time ago there was a time when my laptop would not access the internet, but my desktop would- however my desktop would not play sims, though my laptop would.
Well, my laptop is having issues and my desktop is at my mom’s and not starting up. Hopefully I can get things situated, but I can’t even start up my laptop so sims is obviously out of the question. Sorry guys. Right when I thought we were back….
Phul ran into the hospital but it was too late. Gwendolyn was no longer registered as a patient so he drove home and broke the speed limit many times. When he got there Christopher came out and met him. “Phul… she passed away.” Christopher tried to break the news gently, after all, he knew what it was like to lose someone you loved, he knew better than anyone. Christopher showed Phul to Gwendolyn’s body that had yet to be prepared for burial. She looked like she was sleeping.
Phul was so distraught that he forgot it was his birthday. Instead of throwing himself a birthday party he had to arrange a funeral for his wife.. Sablo was so confused and didn’t know what to think. How could he go on without his mother. Phul tried to comfort him as best as he could but it was Valencia who was strong and who held things together.
Valencia helped meet the mourners and console her best friend and boss. Phul’s eyes somehow felt dry that night as he laid on the couch alone. He didn’t want to go up to his bed and sleep alone, in the bed that he and Gwendolyn had shared. He wasn’t sure what time it was but Valencia came down and saw him. She sat on the edge of the couch and pulled him into a hug.
At least there was still someone to comfort him, to be the strong one. Valencia’s presence was so comforting, he could relax around her and let himself mourn without judgement.

Valencia was excited to be going abroad, but Phul wanted the trip over and done with so he could get back to his pregnant wife. Valencia pleaded with him to allow her just one day of site-seeing and he obliged so their first day in China was filled with going around town and looking at things. They also bought things from the various shops. They didn’t start shooting till their second day there.
Phul had Gwendolyn’s due date and planned to be home a few weeks before it. He and Valencia had to try many times to get the perfect shot- with no other stragglers in the background. It was hard with such populated areas as the Acadamy and Dragon Cave. Each day was filled with trekking to a location and shooting for a couple hours before going back to the Guest House they were staying in.
Phul was so excited to hear from his family so when Christopher called he answered without hesitation. But Christopher’s aged voice wasn’t happy at all. “Phul, you have to come home immediatly.” the elder demanded. “But I’m not done shooti-” Phul tried to say but Christopher cut him off with “It’s Gwendolyn. She’s gone into the hospital with preterm labor.” Behind Phul Valencia was looking curiously at her best friend. “Phul, what’s happened?” She asked. They had become best friends by working together and had often started to confide in each other their secrets.
Sadness etched itself upon Valencia’s heart. Her best friend’s wife was in the hospital. While Phul packed she made the arrangements to return home, booking the first flight out of China and back to Sunset Valley. When they returned she didn’t ask the taxi to take them to the house, but instead, to the hospital.
With bags packed and plane tickets purchased, Phul and Valencia were ready to make a trip to China. Phul, however, couldn’t help but need to remind his wife that he loved her. He couldn’t leave angry, so he came up behind her and told her how much he loved her, how much he cared for her, and how much she and Sablo meant to him. He also managed to convince her that he wasn’t having an affair with Valencia. She was just a model, and besides Gwendolyn, she was the best model he had ever had.
Gwendolyn apologized for their fights and told him something that may have excused her behavior. She had been feeling ill recently, and had been craving some strange foods, and when she had gone to the doctor to treat what she had thought was a stomach virus she found some surprising news. She was expecting a new baby!! Phul wanted a girl, but she desired a boy… When he offered to put his trip on hold she told him not to. Better he be gone for the pregnancy than when the baby is here and needs attention. That’s when he demanded she pose for a picture he could take with him.
He asked her to take pictures of every second of her pregnancy and of Sablo so it would be like he wouldn’t miss a thing. He made her promise to have names picked out from the book Armisael had left long ago. Gwendolyn knew that if he were truly having an affair he wouldn’t have reacted like this. He had been telling the truth when he told her he loved her and that Valencia was nothing. And then he left for China with Valencia.
With the days that followed Sablo’s party, Phul had baby on the brain. He and Gwendolyn had been trying as often as they could- meaning all the time, and so far they had not shown any rate of success. Gwendolyn visited a doctor to discuss their options. She was told that nothing was medically wrong with her and to just trying, but she feared that Phul’s want for a baby and her body neglecting to give him one would drive him away. After all, he was making appointments with Valencia Ursine for his photography career… but that was just his job, right?
Though it was impossible to tell if it was just a job to Phul any more. Valencia’s body was nude in many of the pictures he took and he kept spending more and more time with her. He even had her move in so he could have her model more often. Gwendolyn felt dirty and Sablo started asking questions. Gwendolyn was horrified when she found Valencia posing naked so that Phul could paint her.
That’s when Gwendolyn absolutely lost it. How could he do this in their home? How could he flaunt this floozy in front of her!? If he was having an affair then he should at least have had the decency to be ashamed of it!!! Gwendolyn didn’t know that there was another darkness brewing across town where Anapiel had gone to see a movie by herself. The old woman died of heart ache while trying to laugh her pain away.
Her heart popped like a balloon, letting all the sadness that had been captured within it flow through her veins like a poison. Phul couldn’t take the death of his predecessor and his wife being so cruel so he decided to head abroad. The night before his departure he and Gwendolyn fought like they had never fought before. Phul decided to take his model with him.
