Chapter 7 – A Lonely Childhood


Soon, it was Naomi’s birthday. Both Mei and Seth had forgotten that it was the day she would become a child, so they were both working hard when Naomi finally aged up. Not knowing quite what to do, Naomi sat on the couch to watch some TV and take her mind off of things. “Is this how my birthday is supposed to be?” She wondered as she stared uncomprehending at the TV screen. “I thought I was supposed to get a party with cake…” She said, disappointed.

Sure Naomi had all the toys she could want and numerous luxuries at her disposal, but all she wanted was her Mom and Dad. They forgot about me, she thought, heartbroken.

Seth felt terrible that he missed his little girl’s birthday. He had been so caught up in his painting he hadn’t realized what day or time it was. Plus, his thoughts were also centered on a wedding between him and Mei. “I’m so sorry.” He apologized profusely to Naomi. “How about I make us something to eat, so we can celebrate?” He suggested.

Naomi’s face lit up at the idea. “Yeah!” She replied, excited. Her heart still felt empty because her Mom wasn’t there, but she appreciated spending the time with her Dad. She also felt a little less forgotten by the time they finished their meal. When they were done, they played tag out in the yard.

They had just finished playing tag, and Seth was about to start dinner when Mei came home. “We need to talk.” She said, grabbing him by the arm and dragging him into the dining room. He sat down at the tabe, confused. He couldn’t help but think that something was wrong. Mei seemed so panicked.

“I’m pregnant.” Mei told him, waiting for his reaction.

“That’s wonderful!” Seth told her. He had thought she was going to call off the wedding, but he was so happy to hear that he would have another child. He was about to stand up and hug her, but she held her hands up.

“Wonderful?!” She nearly screamed. “I don’t even want Naomi, and now I’m going to have another child.” Mei hissed.

Seth was taken aback. Since when didn’t she want Naomi? She was so happy that she was pregnant. It took her a while to come around, but once she did…He thought. “Excuse me?” Was all he could think to say.

“I don’t think it’s right for us to get married right now. We’re going to have a lot on our hands with two kids to feed, let alone having to plan and pay for a wedding.” She continued.

Seth could feel his heart breaking piece by piece. It was terrible she didn’t want the baby that was now growing inside her, but she didn’t want to get married? “I don’t get what brought this on.” He said, completely confused.

“Nothing brought it on. I was never excited that I was pregnant with Naomi. I only put a smile on my face for my Mom and you, but now my Mom’s not here. I don’t want to be a Mom.” She confessed.

“Well, I’m sorry to tell you Mei, but you are.” Seth snapped. “You were never there for Naomi as a baby and all she did was want to celebrate her birthday with you today. But now you don’t even want her? How dare you!” He yelled.

Naomi was in the study playing some games to pass the time when she heard her parents start to raise their voices. “Oh no, they’re arguing.” She thought sadly. Even though the door to the study was closed, she managed to catch tidbits of what they were arguing about. She heard Mei say, “I don’t want to be a Mom.” Naomi hung her head in despair. She felt like such a burden on her parents, and she felt so unwanted.

“They don’t want me.” She said to herself as she felt the tears starting to form in her eyes. “It’s all my fault that they’re arguing.” She was about to go out there and apologize, but she heard a door slammed and decided against the idea.

A minute later, she heard footsteps heading toward the study, and the door opened to reveal her Dad. “Oh, Naomi.” Was all he managed to say. He stareda at the heartbroken look on his daughter’s face and ran over to hug her. “I’m so sorry.” He told her, smoothing her hair as she cried.

The household was tense after the incident the previous day. Unfortunately for the couple, they both had to work in the same room. Seth felt resentment toward Mei ever since they had their conversation. He wanted to fix things with her, but he was also furious with her for hurting their daughter. Mei sat at the computer working away. She had always been a worker-bee, but since the situation at home became worse, she found herself working harder and even longer hours.

This concerned Seth as well. He wanted Mei to stop and take care of herself while she was pregnant. He knew she didn’t want to be a Mom, but he wanted to make sure his child was okay. Once she had the child, he planned on talking to her about their current situation. He decided that he would tell her he would take on the kids so that she wouldn’t have to worry about it. He wanted to make sure they had a stable environment and as long as Mei was there, he knew it wouldn’t happen.

With all the stress in the household, Mei’s pregnancy was having some complications. The hours she was working were wearing her down as well as Seth refusing to sleep in the same bed as her anymore. She had the sinking feeling that as soon as she had this child, they would no longer be together. She was okay with that though, if it meant she didn’t have to care for the kids. She knew she could never be a good Mom, and she didn’t want to pretend like she could. She couldn’t even make her own parents proud, how was she supposed to make her children proud?

    • Yeah, it was hard for me to accept Mei as not being the best Mom (she spends alllll of her time working pretty much) because Raelynn and Jane were always there for their kids. 😦

      • It happens like that sometimes. Each one really does have his/her own personality and it truly reflects in the game. At least it adds drama to the story?!?

      • They really do have their own personalities, and I love that about them. That’s how I’m looking at it! Plus, it’ll be interesting to see how Naomi turns out with all of the drama going on.

  1. *cries internally because Naomi*

    I just want to make myself into a big, buff, scary sim, march into your game, slap the crap out of Mei, and tell her to get her shit together. Orrrr, make myself into a really lithe, unnoticeable sim decked out in all black, sneak into your game, kidnap Naomi, and marry her off to Sawyer because she’s really adorable and they’d make cute babies. :3

    I need professional help. XD

    • No, no, no! I want to slap Mei too, so I completely understand lol. Naomi is probably my favorite sim child so far (at least in this legacy), and I feel so bad for her! We could probably arrange that…when they’re older of course, if you want to! lol It’s hard not to say a whole bunch of things too because I’m waayyyy farther in the game than I am in the story, and I don’t want to give anything away 😦

      (I think Mei’s the one who needs professional help)

      • I have yet to age the twins up into teens – I’m trying to stay pretty even between the blog and my gameplay. Also, my game has completely crashed twice in the past three days, and I’ve had to unistall/reinstall it multiple times. Thank God I haven’t lost anything yet, but tonight was a close one (yeah, I just finished re-installing the game again and placing the most involved families from my gallery back in-world).

        We’ll definitely have to see what happens. Sawyer’s been hanging out with this ‘Jordyn’ girl he found on the playground… I don’t know how I feel about her having the same name as my simself, but she has been at our house non-stop, so if that turns into something, I’m not gonna stop it…maybe. XD Can’t wait to see Naomi all grown up! :’)

      • Awh that sounds cute! I think it’s kind of cool she has a similar name lol And I understand. I want to stay pretty even too, but then I just like to play so that’s what I do. I hope everything starts to run smoothly with your game! I haven’t had any problems with sims 4, but sims 3 was a pain in the butt so I understand how frustrating it can be. I think I spent more time fixing my game rather than playing.
