Chapter 10: Strange Times Indeed
We rejoin the Mars household just after Harlow here has celebrated her birthday and transformed into a teen.
Upon her transition Harlow received the Green Thumb trait, so she wasted no time in creating a nice little garden of her very own.
Scarlett, meanwhile, was still working hard to advance in the medical career, and she had now reached level 6.
And Devon? Well, he was just doing all those normal childhood things: playing with toys, making friends, conversing with dead relatives...
Now her kids were growing up, Scarlett felt it was time to concentrate on her personal life once again. She invited her work friend Vito over to the house, who I can assure you is a nice looking dude... But what's with that hair?
Scarlett felt apprehensive about making 'the move', after all she hadn't dated anyone since before her kids were born. At first she just kept to a bit of light conversation.
"Did you know Riley Mars has been flirting with Lamar Mars?" No shizzle.
Eventually she found the courage to turn on the charm and mix things up a bit.
Just don't think about the hair...
The next day Scarlett invited Vito over again and asked him to be her boyfriend, and he said yes.
My god, get a room.
Much better : )
Haha, check out the obvious boob-stare.
Things were going well for the couple so she invited him over the next day too. Unfortunately by that time Vito had turned into an old man. I swear the game just does this to me on purpose...
Anyways.... Now Harlow was a young woman, and an evil one at that, it only seemed fair that she should have her own room. I did better than that though, and built her a basement...
...with her own underground bedroom. It's a work in progress.
One wall of Harlow's basement bedroom is actually windowed and has a lovely view of the swimming pool.
And, as Scarlett had accumulated quite a bit of money by now, I was able to remodel and extend the house some more.
Time for Devon's birthday!
A very energetic leap into teenagehood.
And here's Devon as a teenager, still as smart-casual as ever, and apparently a pyromaniac too : O Don't ask me where that came from.
As he'd grown up I gave his room a suitable makeover.
Life for the teenage Mars kids was relatively fun-filled. Harlow spent a lot of her time either working on her garden or reading books on the subject.
And, as Devon was a Virtuoso, he soon picked up some guitar skillage.
When the teens had any free time they would often spend it together, bless their little cotton socks.
And when she wasn't with her bro, Harlow was out looking for fresh man meat. Here she is flirting with Miles somethingorother. I figured this guy was a safe bet as he had just turned into a teenager too.
But no! Harlow invited Miles over the next day and, lo and behold, he'd turned into a Young Adult.
GTFO EA this is ridiculous!
In another part of the house, Scarlett had clearly decided that her relationship with baldy-old-man wasn't going anywhere, so she started hitting on the maid, out of hours or course.
I don't actually know what happened here...
Aww, they make quite a cute couple I reckons.
Yes, love was definitely in the air. Even the ghostly members of the family were getting in on the act.
Ghosts Just Want To Have Fun.
I didn't think they could leave the house like that?
Oh, and then something really disturbing happened.
Devon was out playing for tips in the park when his curfew time came up. Dutifully, he headed for home and was halfway there when he got arrested by the police. Meanwhile, back in the house, Scarlett waited for his return.
HE NEVER CAME HOME! That pervert policeman just kidnapped him.
No one warned me about serial killers in Sunset Valley : (
Scarlett was very distressed about her only son going missing.
But Harlow decided to cope in a different way. She'd moved on to a new boy toy- I believe his name was Donell (which is ridiculous, clearly).
This attempt went much more successfully than last time, considering she didn't give him a chance to escape and age.
Whilst the smooching was going on I had an excellent idea. I soon tried it out and YES! Devon was returned to the family fold. Who knows if he'll be scarred for life by that dirty cop...?
Sadly Scarlett and Devon were too busy reminiscing and stuffs to look in on Harlow's birthday, so she grew up alone in her bathroom.
And here she is as a Young Adult! Evil as ever : D
So how will Scarlett and Devon continue to live their lives, and what malevolent schemes will Harlow get up to? Find out in the next chapter of The Mars Family Legacy, coming soon.
