G2 – Rose (Prt 12) #Not So Berry (Final)

While Rosendo contemplates the rest of elderly life, Yellow spends more time in the ocean (including sleeping) in-between working on her rocket & fixing more appliances around the house. In further attempts to find the remaining element for Mint she finds a cave which she would like to explore at a future date.

Rosendo collected more votes & headed to work upon receiving a call. This was not pleasant call, as he learned that Eva was surprisingly no longer with us. Needless to say, his work suffered that day. I’m sure we can all relate to how he felt. Several days we spent moping about, until he plucked up courage to meet the club members down at the local bar.

This is where he meets Hiroko. She sympathized with him, being in much a similar situation herself.

Many discussions / meetings took place between them, growing into a loving relationship that finally became ‘Mr & Mrs’. Eloping there & then, while playing in water together, they found themselves committed.

They find a home together in Brindleton Bay by the water. Getting his final promotion at work, Rosendo & Hiroko hopefully can have a wonderful retirement together.

The following week, Rosendo & Eva went on a date together. They seem to get on rather well with many things in common. Could this be the start of something?

Then Devlin invited Rosendo to the romance festival where he managed to complete final stages of aspiration & before he became an elder.

G2 – Rose (Prt 10) #Not So Berry

Yellow continued upgrading appliances in the house in her spare time, completing at least one bathroom.

Kyra was getting a little impatient waiting for Rosendo to make the next move, so she asked him to go out to the park in Windenburg. Why had she chosen this park in particular? Had she secretly planned it all along? Rosendo decided to take a look around & was starting to become a little nervous.
Yeah, you guessed it …. Kyra was going to make her move, knowing that Rosendo is a player with the ladies. She wanted to trap him, hoping to convert his streak of popularity when out around town. In Kyra’s mind, Rosendo was her’s.

Of course this was far too soon for Rosendo, deciding to stop it all as fast as he could. Luckily Kyra never invited any guests so the embarrassment of getting rejected was limited. Rosendo wasn’t keen on being forced into marriage, hoping that the engagement would have lasted longer for him to decide whether it was for him or not.

Several days later, despite all the efforts of Yellow upgrading, the household was still going to incur a daily fine. Yellow decided that this must stop immediately & start upgrading a few more appliances.

It was also her birthday. Blowing out her candles, she realized that Mint spirit was fading away. Surely not, had she started to forget about Mint already. She signed up to become an Astronaut with dreams of still getting to Sixam, in Mint’s memory.

G2 – Rose (Prt 9) #Not So Berry

Yellow was starting to get bored, so before school she summoned her only other friend (Dolphin). Being a loner she hasn’t got much friends & is still missing daily chats with Mint. They played, chatted & had a great time together. On her way inside to get something to eat, Yellow checked on the NAP votes. Water consumption was still in the lead, which she was very happy about. After grabbing a bite to eat, she went for a little sleep in her bed where she hasn’t been since Mint’s passing.

Meanwhile after work the following day, Rosendo headed for the bar once again. Getting to know Nani more, he was beginning to think had he made the wrong choice with Kyra’s proposal. Was it too soon? Is he ready for such a commitment? Then out the blue Nalani (Yellow’s mother) asked Rosendo to join him at the Hijinks festival. Rosendo was still having a great time with Nani, so decided to pass on the this offer.

They both headed to work/school again the following day, where Rosendo came back with a Pristine Reputation.

Noticing the bills were higher & the landgrabs had shut power off, Yellow decided to try collecting some water and having a look at the plumbing to see if any upgrades were required. She immediately started working on shower/bath as she is very passionate about conserving water for the oceans (being a mermaid).

So.. Did they go out on a date?

The answer is …… wait for it …. yes. I didn’t manage to keep any photo’s, however they did earn gold for the last part of his aspiration. From their profiles, it seems as though they get on well with one another.

When I rejoined this game, both Yellow & Rosendo had work / school to go to, so waited for the weekend to arrive before attempting more of the story. This was also to allow me to get to grips with both characters, after such a long break away.

Rosendo was in good spirits heading to the local bar for the afternoon. This is when he met Lilliana. Another potential relationship was blooming. Securing more votes & several drinks later, Rosendo asked Lilliana out on a date.

Date #2 – Staying at bar, they find a quite corner together. As they get to the stage of embracing each other, this dude appeared. You can tell he was really impressed to be there.

Yellow was spending more & more time in the water, gaining outdoorsy lifestyle. Her fitness was also growing with all the swimming around. Collecting the mail, she voted for the water consumption NAP for the neighbourhood. After-all she wanted to preserve nature, keeping the waters clean & healthy.

The following day, Rosendo asked Kyra to pop over as he wanted to ask her an important question. Trying to decide whether he was ready for commitment, Rosendo took the plunge, and at the moment went down on one knee. All the while he was thinking ‘What am I doing?’. Kyra accepted of course, so they sealed the deal heading upstairs.

Getting out of the house, Yellow went to start work on her rocket ship where she plans on opening a little store.

G2 – Rose (Prt 7) #Not So Berry

It was soon Harvestfest & Halloween, both Rosendo & Yellow were that preoccupied with other activities that both holidays flew-by without being noticed. Weather was becoming increasingly worse each day, with many thunderstorms. This was when the new emotions were added, for the upcoming haunted pack. However Yellow did become friends with the Dolphin now that Mint has gone.

Rosendo gets another promotion to Elder Statesperson, forgetting all about his love interests. Both Becca & Kyra decide to show up at the house together to find out what’s going on. They make friends & quickly start chatting about Rosendo. A few days later Kyra still wants to be friends asking for advice from Rosendo. Realizing during & after chat she is still attracted to him, asking for date.

Will they or won’t they? Stay tuned for next episode to find out.

G2 – Rose (Prt 6) #Not So Berry

Following the death of Mint, Rosendo spends all day/night at local bar, not returning home all weekend. He knew that Yellow would need access the ocean on a daily basis so he rebuilt their house in the area of Sulani.

Yellow mourns around the house finding every corner has memories of Mint. Playing chess didn’t help, swimming neither so she decides to stare, in the rain, deep into the sky for any indication that Mint was now among the stars. She remembers the many conversions about the Aliens that Mint visited, wondering if that’s where she should be fulfilling dreams of getting to ‘Sixem’ in her Grandmother’s memory.

Of course the fact that she was a mermaid posed further complications, but she wasn’t going to let that stop her. Yellow had made up her mind, determined to succeed so her only friend would be proud.

Meanwhile, Rosendo gets caught cheating as the club gathering formed in the bar.

G2 – Rose (Prt 5) #Not So Berry

Nalani not been visiting lately, scared of what Rosendo might do with his hot headed temper, so she phoned asking for a date immediately as he returned home from work. Rosendo ignored this phone call. Yellow decided to go thru a phase, turning into a bear, prior to her b’day. Mint decided to annoy Rosendo during prank day maxing skill. Since in great spirits she baked a cake for Yellow to age up.

It was time for Yellow to blow out her candles.

Yes that’s right, she inherited her mothers genes turning into a mermaid. Of course, she wasn’t overly enthusiastic about this, since still deeply connected with Grandmother.

Rosendo had a new phone call (Becca) which he accepted. Who’s knows love may blossom. Work was exhausting so never had much time to answer these calls getting workaholic lifestyle in the process.

Mint’s next shift gained her a promotion completing the finals stages of Career, just as her finals days were becoming closer. Yellow was devastated hearing Mint’s news from her doctor, not wanting to acknowledge putting it to the back of her mind. They enjoyed an afternoon together playing chess in the garden.

After a great few days together, Mint met Grim during the night a couple of evenings later.

failed tasks – due to complications with saves I will be continuing with challenge as this was a bonus

G2 – Rose (Prt 4) #Not So Berry

The Festival of Youth came to Mt Komorebi, Yellow didn’t know why but she wanted to check it out. Heading to the area alone Yellow went to investigate, watching some kids playing with the chemistry tables. Immediately getting tense, she also spotted the mascot in the centre with no-one around. Yellow decided to talk to him learning all about the Critter Challenge in the process. To keep a distance from all the kids, she started searching the grounds only managing to find a total of 6.

Yellow stuck her head in her books in the meantime becoming a Grade A Student. Her spare time was filled by playing chess in the garden & using the science table that Mint had purchased for her.

Rosendo was becoming very popular with the ladies, creating his own club. Each night a different person would end up in his bed. Yellow had also noticed this and was starting to hate her dad even more, creating a grudge between them.

Sentiment is on both Rosendo & Yellow profile’s, no photo captured

Valentines Day was soon upon us, so Rosendo started a group session heading out to the local bar together. He was asked on date during the party so he accepted staying put to watch the rest of group from breaking any rules. Rosendo maxed his Charisma skill.

Mint concentrated on getting her next promotion, levelling up in several skills.

Mint spent some quality time with Yellow at the park after taking couple days holiday post recent promotion. Similar to Roselyn, Mint switched on the imagination station within the toddler gym. Yellow was delighted, playing for hours, which gave Mint an idea for a birthday gift.

Several days passed. Mint & Rosendo continued working & studying while Yellow gained skills playing with toys running about the house. Rosendo didn’t show any interest creating a party for Yellow b’day so Mint decided to make a cake having a little tea-party of their own. She also managed to buy a science table since the day in the park. Yellow reminded her of own childhood.

The elements collection had started again when Mint managed to contact the Geo Council after successful day at work (ps. nearly forgot Mint had more to complete). Then a notification popped up for Winterfest (remember this is a new save file, calendar will not be the same). I decided to try recreating the Winter-fest we never had in Part 10 Generation One.

Mint & Yellow decorated the house with a tree, using very little decorations owned, then they sat down reading a book together. Rosendo was no-where to be seen, probably in his room studying on the computer – seems to be all he cares about these days. Mint & Yellow open their presents together the following morning.

Yellow decided to be extra responsible switching on the dryer. What she didn’t know, you have to make sure the lint tray was clean after previous use. You guessed it, a second fire has now entered this challenge. Both Rosendo & Mint came to her rescue combating the fire together, making sure Yellow was alright. Yellow thought she would never do that again and started to assist with the cleaning up.

Rosendo’s course came to an end shortly afterwards, while Mint became a elder.
