I can’t believe that its been almost two years since my last update. Things just came up and I found no time for my sims, not to say I did not think about them. Well now I am back and I intend to get back into the Harthrowe Family with some updates here and there. Anyways this chapter is long, very long and has literally all of the family in it. We get to hear what has been going on from Linseys perspective. (Side note: If you want me to upload anyone, just let me know for I have all of them saved.) After being introduced to the family, there are just un-captioned photos of what happened. At the end of the Reunion, we get to the second part of the story Changes. The content does get a little more mature and the pictures risky so read at your own digression. Thanks and enjoy.

Once Grandma finished with her stories of times far before my time, she invited us all in for some tea. It’s very hard to belive that my mellow tea sipping grandmother was once this ruthless, vicious tyrant of a CEO at Sim-Metta-Cps, or at least that’s what the company evolved into. But after a few more fascinating stories, my mother volunteered to give me a tour around her childhood home. Dad stayed down stairs with the rest of my sisters and his grandchildren. It turns out that I am the last out of all my grandmothers grandchildren to have ever visited Twinbrook, yet see her house.
We started the tour down in the basement. “This is where my brother used to stay” Mom said.
“Brother?!?” I said completely shocked. This was news to me, as far as I knew, Grandma Anna never had a son. “I never knew that you had a brother”
“Well technically I don’t have a brother, just sisters.” she said as she shook her head a little. “I was raised with my Mother and my Aunt Keri, my father wasnt in my life like yours was. He died before I was born… I know he wasnt a good man, but still…” the look in my mothers eyes said it all, she wishes that she could have had the relation with her father that I got with mine. The type of relation that I wish my children could get with theirs. But as shortly as my mother had depressed herself, she was back to her cheery self in no time to continue her story. “I saw my Aunt as a second mother, she did everything that a mother would do with her own children. So you see both my mothers were pregnant at the same time, twice!” she exclaimed. “So of corse I saw my Cousin Vincent as my brother and Janel as another sister.”
“Oh” I said feeling stupid. It all made sence now that my Uncle Vincent would be who my mother had been talking about.
With that my mother continued the tour. She brought me to the first floor where everyone was still conversing or cooing over the young children. Shortly afterwards we went upstairs where we stopped in another living room. It was a rather lovely room with a fireplace and a tv hanging over it. “This used to me my big sisters room. Their beds used to up against that wall over there” she said pointing to walls adjacent to the door. After a few minuets of trying to picture what this room would have looked like back then, we moved on to the actual bedrooms.
“When I was seven, this is where I found Kira fooling around with one of the neighbor boys. It’s also where she gave me a black eye broke my nose afterwards” she said with a laugh.
I let out a nervous chuckle after my mother. I’m not sure how I should react to something like that. Though I guess my mother was fine with it if she could laugh at it. After a few more minuets of my mom reminiscing about times when she was young, she finished up the tour by taking me to the top floor. This used to be my mother’s room that she shared with her sisters. It was converted into a play room for children now since Grandma had lots of grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
The day ended shortly after my tour of the house. Nothing more really happened as I was escorted to a small apartment that I would be staying at for the duration of my visit. My parents offered to watch my children for me, thus giving me time for myself, time to explore the city, time to gather my thoughts once more for a passion put on hold.
I awoke late in the afternoon to an eery silence. I sat up in my bed, stretching to the afternoon light when I realized it was too quiet. I freaked out fearing that something had happened to my children, but as I frantically started to search through the rooms, I remembered that they were staying over with their grandparents. Feeling stupid, I went about a strange morning routine. Normally I wouldn’t have much time to relax and take a nice bath, but today I was on my own for the first time in what seemed like forever.
After a nice soak in the tub and some personal time to groom myself, I went out for a walk around the city. It was quiet, empty and just plain different from what I was used to. Even Sunset Valley had more people coming and going, but this place just seemed dead.
And speaking of dead, before I knew it i had wandered out to the cemetery and found myself looking at the worn grave stones that belonged to my family. The experience was humbling for it gave me a chance look at my own mortality. Most of who I found buried had died far before their time, an aliment that I almost surcame to when I gave birth to my twins.
After paying my respects to my family, I went back to my grandmother’s house to meet up with everyone. It was a long walk, a few hours at least, but I made it back before the sun was down. While I was gone, my family decided to play around with my girl’s hair. All four of them had a new hairdo.
I found all new styles to be absolutely adorable so I decided to dress up their hair that way for now.
Emma and Lana
Over the corse of the week, family of all sorts started to show up at my grandmother’s house and throughout the town. I meet many relatives that I did not know I had. We also started taking family photos. My grandma didn’t want to bother everyone with so much formality so we were all allowed to wear our casual attire for the photos. That was such a relief for me because it would have been hell trying to get my kids into their formal cloths.
This photo is of my direct family, excluding my grandmother. On the Back left it starts with my twin sisters Mellissa hanging on to Madalyn. Next to the twins are my brother-in-law Cameron Welch hugging on to my pregnant twin sister Lilah, his wife. Next to them stood my father’s daughter he accidentally had with his best friend Cloé Lambrat, before he meet mom, my oldest sister Alyse Eveline Lambrat Harthrowe who lost focus and worriedly looked down to check up on Lilahs twins, my niece and nephew Mike and Kathline Welch. Next to the little ones sits Alyses daughter Aurore. On the Bench sits my loving parents Sean and Léonce. Directly behind my mother stands my parents oldest daughter together, my big sister Lacey. Next to Lacey stands my sister Angie holding her son Greg. Standing next to Angie and Greg is the families gymnast, my sister Daisy. Directly in front of Daisy stands her twins, Erika and Samantha who is in front of Tammy and myself. Erika and Sam look worried about my daughter Crystal, Tammys twin. unfortunately my son Will fell behind his twin sisters, they are triplets after all, Emma and Lana. Lana found something funny about this whole photo shoot and looks absolutely adorable.
This second photo is of my grandmother Annas eldest daughter from her first triplets, Kami Laines family. Seated on the bench is Kami and her husband Nathan Laine. In the far left corner is Kamis second child, her daughter Sally who in turn is holding her daughter, Kamis granddaughter, Kellie Laine. Standing right next to Sally is Janie Laine the wife of Lee Laine, Kamis and Nathans first child, who is standing next to his wife while holding their third daughter Jena Laine while his wife Janie holds their fifth child Esther. In front of Janie and Lee are their first born, twins Sheena the eldest with black hair and Tracie the cute brunette waving. In front of the twins and to the front left sits Janie and Lees only son, their fourth child Silas. Seated next to Silas are Janie and Lees youngest children, their quintuplets. And here I thought having triplets was hard, yowch. Anyways sitting next to Silas are the cute little red heads Lena and Marcella, or is that Marcella and Lena? They are identical in almost every way. Next to her sisters is Teresa, the oldest and only one of the quintuplets that I can definitively identify. Finlay its little Alisa and JoAnna Laine, again I could be mistaken on who is whom. Anyways the age of the quintuplets starts with Teresa being the first-born by about ten minuets. She was followed by Lena and Marcella two minuets later. Another hour later and Alisa was born followed by her sister JoAnna a minuet later. All in all, Janie told me she was in labor for over a day. Next in the Laine family photo is Edward Laine, Kamis third child and the goofball comic of the family. Standing next to her goofball brother is Rebecca Laine, Kami and Lees youngest child. Standing almost in front of Rebecca looking rather seductive is Kamis oldest triplet June Laine. Seated in front of June is the middle triplet, Autumn Laine. Finally behind Autumn and next to June is the youngest of Kamis triplets, Summer Laine. Summer is standing next to her fiancé Dewayne Callahan who is holding their daughter Dawn Laine. Though I must say that Dewayne looks a lot like my grandfather, Chris Blackbolt, from the few photos I have actually seen of him. Grandma had only a few remaining so she could show my mother and her sister who their father was. Anyways Summer and Dewayne plan on getting married soon now that Dawn is about two.
This photo is of my grandmother Annas middle triplet from the first three. Annas second child Cara (Roberts) Harthrowe. On the bench sits Cara next to her youngest daughter, who is very pregnant, Susan Harthrowe. Susan is holding on to her nephew Laron Deeman whos parents reside in the back left corner. In the back is Dan Deeman who is holding on to his pregnant wife Mary Deeman, Caras middle child. A very pregnant Elaine Harthrowe, Caras oldest daughter, stands behind her mother rubbing her pregnant belly. And finally in front are Elaines daughter, each with a different father. You see Elaine was emotionally damaged after her father, Leon Roberts, was arrested for raping her Aunt, Kira, and ultimately committing suicide. After her father committed suicide in prison, Elaine started to sleep around when she was only still just a child. She was thirteen when she started and was trying to fill the void of her fathers sins. Thankfully Susan and Mary turned out okay. Anyways the cute little blonde sucking her thumb is Elaines youngest, for now, little Terry Harthrowe. Standing up in the middle giggling is the oldest of Elaines children, Margarret Harthrowe. And Lastly is little Charlene Harthrowe who inherited her grandfather Leons red hair.
The fourth photo is of Kira Harthrowe, the third born child and youngest of my grandma Annas triplets. Auntie Kiras family is the smallest but probably the strangest. On the left of the bench sits my cousin, who is more like a sister to me, Heather Harthrowe. Heather is Kiras oldest daughter, unfortunately Kira does not know who the father is for she was in the Adult Entertainment Industry and had more than her fair share of unprotected intercourse. Seated next to Heather is obviously my Auntie Kira with her youngest daughter Melony. Melony is barely three years old and was healthily born from my aunt who was nearly fifty at the time. That places the age difference between Heather and her sister Melony and nearly some twenty-seven years. Melonys father is also unknown for Kira went back into making porno graphic videos to help pay for Heathers law school. Being a substitute teacher just can’t cut it when trying to pay for the most prestigious law school there is. Lastly is Kiras middle child Theron. Now unfortunately everyone knows who Therons father is. Kira was raped in her sleep repeatedly over the course of many months by her former brother-in-law Leon Roberts. Eventually over many months of being raped, Kira eventually conceived a child, Theron. But it wasn’t clear who the father was for a few years until Therons hair came in and it looked an awful lot like his former uncle turned father. A short paternity test later and Leon was arrested for rape, sentenced to a lengthy prison sentence and died by his own hands. Fucked up, I know right?
Photo five is of grandma Annas fifth child, the second born in her second set of triplets, Nelly Lee. Nelly is seated next to her loving husband Todd Lee. In back left is Nellys oldest child, Chadrick Lee whom is escorting his wife Malinda Lee. In front of Chad and Mal is their daughter Francisca. Behind Uncle Todd is his twin daughters Anitra and Holli. Anitra is the older of the two twins with the lovely blonde hair and Holli the younger and more outgoing of the twins. Next to the twins is Aunt Nellys youngest child, Lisa accidently turned her head at the time of the photo. Sitting in front of Lisa is her sister Mindy, Nelly and Lees fourth child.
The photo ive been fearing the most, my Aunt Sarah McGraws family. Why, because Aunt Sarah has eighteen kids!!! Anyways on the bench is Sarah kissing her husband Steven McGraw. Now this is where it should get interesting. First in the far back left corner with the blonde hair is Beatrice McGraw, the oldest of Aunt Sarahs twins with her ex-fiancé Adam Ontrio. Next to Beatrice is her twin Bridgette McGraw. Next to his twin sisters is Scottie McGraw, aunt Sarahs first born child, with his arm around his lovely, Twinbrook native, wife Laurel McGraw. Flexing in front of his brother Scottie is Nick McGraw, aunt Sarahs sixth child with Steven the youngest of her first triplets. Underneath Nicks arm is his youngest brother Calvin. Calvin is Sarahs youngest son, the oldest of her last twins with Steven. Next to little Calvin is Melonie, the oldest triplet of Sarah and Steven. Poor Melonie looks like she fell asleep standing up waiting for the photo, but probably what happened was she blinked at the wrong time. Sitting on the floor in between Melonie and Nick is Mike the middle triplet to the set. So just to clarify its Melonie, Mike and then Nick who are Sarah and Stevens oldest triplets in order by age. Next to Mike in the crouching position is Lamar, Aunt Sarahs fifth child over all but second and first son with Uncle Steven. Seated in front of Lamar is his niece and nephew, Aunt Sarahs and Uncle Stevens only grandchildren, Cyrus and Charlene. Cyrus, the little brunette boy looking at his hand, and Charlene are children of Sarahs oldest son Scottie. Scottie was in another marriage, prior to meeting Laurel, which went sour after their youngest son Cyrus was born. After they divorced, a year after Cyrus’ birth, Scottie won full custody of his children. Okay so next to Scotties little ones and her father sits little Karen. Karen is the twin sister of Calvin and is the youngest child of Sarah and Steven. Almost directly behind Steven and next to Laurel is Tanya, Sarah and Stevens first child together. Then there is Barry who while standing behind his sister Tanya came to some realization or another. Beside Barry is Sarah and Stevens first set of twins together, Yvonne who almost blinked at the wrong time and Tad who doesn’t look that thrilled to be here. Next are twins number two, Elaine and David who are striking a pose together. And finally at the end here we have Sarah and Stevens second set of triplets. The oldest of the three is Jeri, the little girl lying on the floor. Above Jeri is her twin sisters. First is Ruby, who is giving the peace sign while making a silly face. Finally there is the cute Blondie Bell who looks like she is wondering where Rubys pants or tights are. And I have to admit that it is a rather short dress for a girl her age to be wearing.
And that is my general family, excluding my grandmother who will appear in a later photo. The next photos are relatives of mine although I might not know exactly how we are related, I do know that they are the children of my Great-Grandfather and Great-Grandmother Paul and Mary Harthrowe.
These first photos are of my Grandmothers older brother Marco II and his wife Vanessa Harthrowes family. Marco II named after his Grandfather my Great-Great-Grandpa Marco. It starts with Grandmas nephew Han Harthrowe who is seated with his wife Kate. In the back left is Hans oldest son Matthew hugging on to his wife Mandie Harthrowes pregnant stomach. In front of Mat and Mandie is their daughter, Hans only grandchild, Sandy. In the middle is Hans youngest and only daughter Mellina. Mellina anciently started laughing as the photo was shot, im not quite sure at what though. The last person is Hans middle child Scott Hathrowe.
Next is Marco II’s second child, his daughter Cristy Gauthier and her family. Chisty is seated next to her husband Delvin. Behind Cristy are her two daughters, Dianna , the older of the two, and Serina Gauthier who is wearing a red tie. Not sure why she has a tie on, must be some teenage craze. Ill have to ask my sisters Mellissa and Madalyn later.
This is the last photo of Marco II and Vanessa Harthrowes family. On the bench sits Marsha Funk, the youngest daughter of Marco II. Marsha is cuddling with her husband Jamie. Behind them are their daughters Zelda who is holding her little sister Sprite.
The next set of photos comes from Grandma Annas sister Kristin Harthrowe Riveras family. Kristin originally was a paramedic who eventually settled down to become an Obstetrician and gynecologist. She help to bring so many lives into the world including my mother Sean and her twin sisters Nelly and Sarah. Kristin also delivered my twin sisters Mellissa and Madalyn. And I know if she were still around today, she would have been there to deliver my twins or triplets. Kristin just loved children and had six children of her own with her loving husband Richtor Rivera.
The first photo is of Kristins first child Alexandra Rivera. Alexandra was in an abusive marriage with her now ex-husband Tom Bello. Before Alexandras got a divorce, she had a daughter, Lois. Lois Alston stands behind her mother and next to her husband Abner Alston, while holding their young son Clark.
In the second photo we have Kristins second child, the oldest of her first twins, Lily Meador. Lily sits in the loving arms of her husband Leif Meador. Directly behind Lily is her oldest child and only daughter Isabella Meador. Isabella is in the beginning stages of her second trimester, she is barely starting to show. Isabellas fiancé and the father of her child, Stan Dingstill, stands lovingly behind his soon to be wife. The young man to the left of Isabella, the right side of the photo, is the second child of Lily and Lief, their oldest son Wally. And lastly is the Leif and Lilys youngest child, Tarance.
Photo three of this family is of Krisins third child, and twin sister of Lily, Jamie Loyd. Jamies husband, Augustin Loyd, sits lovingly with his wife, though you can see the concern in his face about his very very pregnant teenage daughter Paula. Paula is barely sixteen years old and is about to be a mother, she looks like she could go into labor at any time now. And as it turns out Paulas due date is in roughly a week. She doesn’t want to know the gender of her child until she gives birth, but her doctor says that everything looks good for a girl her age.
The next photo is of Allie Rivera, Kristins fourth child, and her family. I’m sure you can tell by this photo that Allie isn’t all to interested in men. Allie married her high school girlfriend Yesenia Rivera and they started a family. Instead of adopting children, they went to a fertility clinic. Anyways Allie has her arm around her pregnant wife. This will be their sixth child they will raise together, the third child bore by Yesenia. The young man in the back is George Rivera, their second child together and first bore by Yesenia. The cutie sucking her thumb is Amanda the current youngest and third child of Allies. Amanda sits next to her big sister Kattie who is lying on the floor. Kattie is the first child that he couple had together and is Allies first-born. The last two are little girls are Jennifer and Tracey Rivera, left to right. Tracey is Allies second child, the couples third while Tracey is Yesenias second.
Brandie, Brandie Rivera is a cousin of mine!?! I knew that we had a few relatives with the sur name Rivera but I thought that was just coincidence. Ahem, Brandie Rivera is a pretty famous Rock Star for the past… er… em…. well she’s been famous for literally my entire life. I grew up listening to her music, and now I find out that she is a relative of mine, that’s just unbelievable. Anyways Brandie is seated next to her son Lex. I still remember the scandal when the tabloids started publishing photos of an unwed pregnant Brandie. Those were some harsh times for her, but shortly after delivering Lex, she bounced back and is still a big icon in the music world today. I still can’t belive we are related. Yeah Brandie is Kristin and Richtors fifth daughter.
This is the last photo of Krisitins family, her youngest daughter Yusun Griffiths. A pregnant Yusun is seated in the arms of her husband Frank Griffiths. Yusun is pregnant for the tenth time, wow ten times, expecting her eleventh child. In the back left corner is Yusun and Franks oldest child, their daughter Ellen Griffiths. Ellen is holding on to her youngest brother Migeul. In front of Ellen and Miguel stands Martain, Yusuns seventh child. The cuties in front of Martain are the current youngest of the household, Yusuns twins Julia and Joline. Joline is the younger twin in the light pink dress sitting to her twin sisters right hand side, left side of the photo. The two cute little twins are lost in their own little world not paying much attention to anything or anyone but their other half. Directly behind Yusun is little Laura, the sixth born child. She is hanging on to her big brother Phil, Yusun and Franks second child, who must work out quite a bit if he is able to hold seven-year old sister on his right arm only. The young woman with her hand on her cheek standing next to her brothers is Judy Griffiths, the couples fourth child. The little boy in the blue jacket looking at his parents is Stan, Yusuns fifth born. And lastly there is Danny, Yusuns third child, giving the horns while his other hand goes through the two holes in his pants.
And with my Great Aunt Kristins family photos complete, we move to my next great-uncle. The infamous Gary “G” Harthrowe and his family.
Gary only had three children with his wife Amber. His oldest being his only daughter Celia who is lucky to have been born altogether. In the first few months of Ambers pregnancy with Celia, she was abducted, raped, beaten, cut and stabbed repeatedly before passing out from loss of blood. Celia was born a few months later perfectly health as her mother had survived the attack. I guess you can say that all of the people in these photos upcoming photos are lucky as well for they would not have been born if Amber did not survive. Not only did Amber survive to survive to have brought Celia and the others into the world, but she also helped bring Gary back from the abyss, even if it was for a short few years. Anyways this photo is of Celia Harthrowe and her son Chris. Celia never got married, she just had her one son whom she raised with the help of her mother.
The second photo is of Garland, Gary and Ambers first son and middle child, who is cuddling with his wife Celeste Harthrowe. On the left is Fred, Garlands oldest son, hugging on to his pregnant wife Tennille Harthrowes belly. They are expecting their second child. Standing next to Fred in the panda shirt scratching his stomach is Louis, Garland and Celestes middle child. In the middle, directly behind his parents, is Francis. Francis is a male model which explains his professional looking pose. Next to Francis is Luke, the youngest son. Standing next to Luke holding her nephew Wallace, Fred and Tennilles little boy, is the couples youngest and only daughter Mila. She is very pretty for a twelve-year-old girl and I have a feeling she will become a model when she is older like her brother.
The last photo of the set belongs to Gary and Ambers youngest son Cesar Harthrowe and his small family. Cesar is cuddling with his wife Olivia Harthrowe. They plan on adding a new member to their small family as they have been trying to get Olivia pregnant. Everyone is crossing their fingers and wishing them luck. The couple currently has two daughters, their oldest Lucy is seven while their youngest Linnette is three. The two girls love one another to pieces and look absolutely adorable lying together.
And thus ends Garys legacy. Although the legacy of his alter ego “G” probably will never die. After his death a bunch of copy-cats started their own vigilante spree in his honor and name. Thankfully they don’t know of Garys family or we would never get peace.
The next set of photos comes from my grandmothers little sister Keri. The first photo is of Keris oldest child, my Uncle Vincent and his family. Vincent is sitting with his lovely wife Kristin Harthrowe. In the back left corner is Uncle V’s first child, my cousin Luigi Harthrowe. Luigi is clinging to his pregnant wife Annette Harthrowe. In front of the loving couple are their three young children. In the middle of the little cuties is Luigi and Annettes first child, their son Isaiah. Sitting on both sides of little Isaiah are the twin, his sisters Darlene the cute dirty blonde and older of the two on the left and Sherita Harthrowe the adorable brunette and youngest on the right. Next to Luigi, and kind of behind him, doing the Y in the YMCA is Vincents youngest son and second child John Harthrowe. John is standing next to Nate Days, his little sister and Vincents middle child Angela Harthrowe. Angela and Nate are only dating but they already have a daughter together, little Dianna Harthrowe. Although Nate is showing affection to the mother of his child, Angela, she looks to be pulling away from him. She might not be to pleased that they do have a two-year old daughter together and he has yet to man up to the situation. Angela looks like she is trying to pull away to her younger sisters, Hope and Felecia Harthrowe. Hope is trying to get her seventeen year old baby sister stop her ridiculous pose.
Photo two is of Cousin Janel Harthrowe and her Family. Janel is the only one sitting on the bench, she never got married, she just had some bad circumstances. Janel kind of sort of slept with her mothers, now ex, boyfriend and conceived her triplets. Her oldest son and first of the triplets is Samm Harthrowe. Samm, yes it is spelled with two m’s, is standing in the back left corner with his young wife Lilly. Lilly just turned eighteen a few months ago and already has twin two-year old daughters with Samm who is twenty-nine. This obviously implies that he was fucking around with a minor. Samm is a retired Football MVP so im guessing his fame is what led him into believing it was okay for him to fuck a fifteen year old teenager. Yeah doing the math, Lilly would had to have been fifteen almost sixteen upon conception. And then considering the fact that Samm would have been twenty-seven at the time… yeah that’s just wrong, but some how he got away with it and even married his teenage bride a little over a year after his twins were born. Lilly would have been seventeen when she got married, again still not legal. Now Lilly is roughly seven months pregnant with another pair of twins, implying that she conceived on her wedding night. I hate to drag on about how wrong this is, but Lilly is only a senior in high school. Whatever, they seem to be happy all things aside, so I guess that all that matters. Anyways before Samm was fucking teenage girls, he was in at least three different relationships where he impregnated three separate women. Not all at the same time, but generally around the same time considering the age of his children. The oldest is the cute little four-year old boy in the orange shirt, Lance Switzer Harthrowe. Lance is sitting in between his two sisters. The dark-haired angel is Veronica Schultz Harthrowe who is about three and a half. And then the little blonde cutie sucking her thumb is three-year old Rachael Cross Harthrowe. Samm had two wemon pregnant at a time, excluding his wife. Somehow or another he got custody of his little ones to make one big happy family. The cute redhead twins at the front are little Kari and Lea Hathrowe, again I can’t tell them apart, sorry. But I do know that Kari is the older twin by roughly thirty minuets. Well the young man in glasses holding the two little girls is Charlie Harthrowe, Janels second child and the middle triplet. Now the two little girls are not Charlies, they actually are his younger twin sisters. Janel was in a brief relationship a few year back which led to the birth of her twins, six-year-old Luna and Rose. Rose is the sweety in purple under Charlies arm while Luna clings to her big brothers leg. There is a twenty-three year age gap between Janels kids, but Charlie adores his little sister and I know they adore him. It’s actually quite cute. The last and youngest triplet is Kitty O’Niel. Kitty is lying on her husband Carmello O’Niel who is gently caressing their developing child. This is Kittys third pregnancy, she is expecting another girl. Lastly are Kittys two little girls, Celeste and Casandra O’Niel. Celeste is in a cute little animal dress playing with her feet and Casandra is in the purple shirt and pants looking at her cousins.
Kari only had the two children, both were born from unfortunate circumstances. But over time and with enough love from her sister, grandma Anna, Keri helped raise not only her children, but my mother and Aunts as well. Everyone sees it that Keri needed Anna, but I belive Anna needed her little sister just as much. Anyways the next set of photos are of the children of my Grandmothers brother Jimmy (James) Harthrowe and his wife Amy.
The first photo of this set is of Jims eldest daughter Susana Miranda. Susana is resting comfortably in the arms of her husband Davis Miranda. Behind them is their so Alex, a writer like myself! Alex looks to be deep in thought, possibly thinking about his book. Next to Alex is his little sister Amelia Miranda. Amelia is in the arms of her boyfriend Gary Farr. They are expecting their third child. Amelia and Garys children adorably sit in front of their parents. The oldest of the two is Jerico Miranda and he is the cute little boy in orange biting his hand. His younger brother sits beside him sucking his thumb. They look adorable.
The second photo is the family of Paul II (Pauly) Harthrowe. He is Jim and Amys second child and is named after my Grandmothers father, my Great-Grandpa Paul. Amy was about nine months pregnant at the time James father passed away, so a few days later when she gave birth to a little boy they decided to name him after their late father. Pauly rests comfortably with his wife Cherie Harthrowe. The couple has twin teenage daughters Ruby, in pink, and Saphire, in blue. It made me laugh a little at that twins colors are red and blue, now that’s just irony. The cute blonde sitting on the floor is Paulys youngest, Cloe.
The third photo is the family of Lacey Harthrowe. Not to be confused with my big sister Lacey. Lacey sits with her newborn son Pablo resting in her arms, he was born no more than two months prior to the reunion. Sitting next to Lacey is her fiancé Jeffry Finch. Jeff is holding the couples two-year old son Steven. The couple plans to get married when Pablo is a little older, unless any unsuspected surprises come up.
The last photo is a combination of Jims youngest daughters. Aubrey is the older of the two holding her daughter Rochelle Harthrowe. The father abandoned Aubrey after finding out she was expecting and never met his daughter. Sounds familiar…. Chris ….. Anyways she is living with her little sister Melanie Harthrowe. I heard that Melanie looks an awful lot like her mother Amy, but I haven’t seen all to many photos of Amy when she was younger yet.
This photo is of Lilah Harthrowe, not to be confused with my twin sister, and her daughter Suzanne. Lilahs parents are unknown as she was left out in front of an orphanage literally since she was born. Three years down the line she was adopted by Grandmas youngest sister Stacey Harthrowe and her wife Molly. They raised Lilah as their own daughter even when they began having children of their own, Lilah was still treated as their own biological daughter. Anyways Lilah works very hard at my grandmothers company she later sold, what eventually became CEO at Sim-Metta-Cps, and never really had time for a social life. Wanting a family of her own, Lilah went to a specialized bank where she conceived her daughter Suzanne. Lilah also is talking about adopting another child or two once Suzanne is a little older.
The next photos are of Stacey and Mollys children with a mutual third-party, Colin Hastings. It’s not that they were cheating on one another, they were ver much in love and wanted biological children too. So Colin was contracted to perform services to help them grow their family.
The second photo of the set is of Charla Clanceys family. Charla, Staceys first child, is happily married to her husband Arron Clancey. Standing in the back middle is Charlas oldest daughter Rosie Clancey. Standing next to Rosie in the orange shirt wearing a big beautiful smile is Charlas second daughter Sarah Clancey. Now here is where things get strange, it turns out that Charlas husband Arron cheated on her back when she was pregnant with Rosie. He cheated with Charlas sister Marci Padgett impregnating her. They were able to keep it a secret for many years, even when Marci got married herself. Now instead of instead of getting a divorce or going to marriage counseling like any normal couple, Charla went out and got even. She slept with her sister Marcis husband, Jarred Padgett, and conceived a child with him out of spite. Some how or another the two families made it work out and everyone’s all on good terms now. Strange, very strange relation. Anyways Charla and Jarred had a daughter together, the beautiful dark-haired girl in white, Amy Clancey. After straightening everything out with her husband, Charla and Arron had a son together, Lee Clancey who is sitting in front of his parents.
The third photo is of Marci Padgetts family. Marci is Mollys first child and is lovingly seated in the arms of her husband Jarred Padgett. Although Marci is now happily married, Marci slept with her sister’s husband Arron. This was years before she meet her husband. The brief affair led to Marci conceiving a child with her sister’s husband. Marci and Arron kept the fact that they had a son together a secret for many years. So standing in the middle, the only other male, is Marci son with Arron Clancey, Roger Padgett. A few years down the line Marci got married to her husband Jarred and they had a daughter together. Wearing white and with her mothers orange hair is Marcis first daughter with her husband, Kathrine Padgett. A few years after Kathrine was born, the news of who Rogers father was came out and an infuriated Charla forced Jarred into, well fucking her. That lead to the birth of Amy. Now holding no grudge against her husband or sister, Marci and Jarred had another daughter together. Wearing the dark cloth and pretty black hair is Nancy Padgett, the youngest in this really screwed up two families.
The fourth photo is of Harmony Melendez, Staceys second biological child, and her family. Harmony is in the arms of her husband Jerry Melendez. Behind the couple is their youngest daughter Tawana who is lovingly looking down at her parents. Next to Tawana and in the right corner stands the couples older girls. First in the orange shirt is Tabatha, the first child of Harmony and Jerry. And lastly is the couples middle child Peach Melendez. Peach was in a black shirt wearing a red tie, again I will have to find out from my sisters if that is some sort of teenage fashion craze.
Photo five is of Wyatt Harthrowe, Mollys second child and the couples first son. Wyatt is holding his wife Tisha. Behind the couple are their two sons. The oldest is Shelby Harthrowe who is dressed in the skull shirt. Shelby is standing next to his younger brother Josiah.
The next photo is of Nickolas Harthrowe, Mollys second son and third biological child. Charlie brought his girlfriend Bridgette Wofford with him to the reunion. The couple stands lovingly hand in hand gazing into one anthers eyes. How adorable.
Photo seven is of Staceys only biological son and third child, Charlie Harthrowe and his wife Claudia. Charlie sits on the floor with his pregnant wife resting in his lap. Charlie rests his hand on his wifes baby bump, it’s going to be the couples first child.
Photo eight is the family of Courtney Harthrowe. Courtney is Stacey fourth child that she had. Before Stacey conceived Courtney, her contract with Colin had run its course and he had already left. Now Stacey and Molly still had an urge to bare children, so they went out to bars and made a few lucky stiffs three-way fantasies into reality. On one of those occasions, Stacey conceived Courtney and Molly too would ultimately conceive a child only to have a devastating miscarriage. Courtney has three children and a fourth on the way with her long time boyfriend Felipe DeLong. Filipe lovingly holds his girlfriend in his arms, though im not sure why he hasn’t taken the next step with her. I mean he already has three with Courtney and another on the way. Anyways the three cute little girls sitting in front of them are their daughters. On the right side in the yellow dress and with her fathers dark brown hair is the couples first child Eliza Harthrowe. In the middle sucking her thumb is the current youngest, little Kellee. ANd finally with the beautiful long black hair is Lynette Harthrowe. Courtney say she is expecting another girl in a month.
The last photo of the set is of Stacey and Mollys youngest daughters, Allison and Brook Harthrowe. A few years after Stacey had Courtney and Molly miscarried, they decided that they both wanted to give birth to one more child each. Unlike last time they went to a specialist for proper fertilization. After choosing a donor, they decided to carry each others baby. So Mollys fertilized egg went into Stacey and Staceys went into Molly. It made them feel closer to each other and their love grew stronger. The two actually went into labor together, even though Stacey wasn’t due for another week, and had their girls only a few minuets apart from one another. Stacey and Molly considered their new borns twins even if they came from separate mothers. Allison is the older of the girls, by roughly five minuets. Allison is Mollys daughter bore by her wife Stacey. Brook is biologically Staceys but was bore by Molly, very confusing stuff. Anyways Being twins both Allison and Brook did everything together and shared everything, even a boyfriend. They both say they are expecting their first child from the same ex-boyfriend, and that they gave each other private time to be intimate. It’s the one thing they say they are glad they did not do together. Allison is the spitting image of her biological mother Molly and is clinging on to her little sister. And Brook looks like a young Stacey.
Finally its a photo of the family matriarchs. In the back corner is grandmas little sister Stacey in the arms of her loving wife Molly Harthrowe. Standing next to the only surviving couple, is Amber, Gary Harthrowes wife. Amber is standing next to Kari Harthrowe, Annas younger sister. On the right end is Amy, James Harthrowes wife. Sitting on the bench is are the oldest two members of the Harthrowe family. On the left is Vanessa, Marco II’s wife. And finally seated next to Vanessa with a big smile across her lips is my Granma Anna. Grandma is the one hosting this entire week-long affair and is the head of the family.
And that should have been the end of the photos, but my grandmother had another a surprise in store.
The first photo is of my Aunt Roxanne Blackbolt Smith and her family. Yes the daughter of my grandfather Chris Blackbolt with another woman. My mother hold no grudge against the children, anymore, and invited them to the reunion. After all they are siblings to her children and my Aunts and Uncles. Seated on the bench is my Aunt Roxanne Smith with her two-year old daughter Tara. Tara was an unexpected blessing to my Aunts. Like Aunt Kiras daughter Melony, Tera was born to Roxanne when she was in her mid late forties. Tara is thirteen years younger than her next sisters and some twenty-three years younger than her oldest brother. My Uncle Roger Smith sits next to this wife and daughter resting his hand upon his wifes inner thigh. Anyways the young girl in the back left corner is Miranda Smith, Roxie and Rogers fourth child. Next to Miranda is Alyssa, the wife of Roxies first child Marth Smith. The couple is expecting their first child. And they arent the only one expecting, in front of them is Roxies second child, her daughter Lily McDanial. Lily is lovingly lying in her husband Leroys lap. Behind my Aunt and Uncle are the couples teenage quintuplets, the youngest before Tara was born. The blond giving the peace sign is the middle quintuplet, Deidra. Faye is red-head and the second born of the quintuplets, she looks rather nervous being here. In the middle is the youngest of the quintuplets, Felicia. Fifteen year old Felicia is pregnant, she got knocked up on her prom night by her boyfriend. My Aunt and Uncle aren’t very happy, for obvious reasons, but are willing to help their daughter raise her child so she can complete high school. Standing next to Felicia is Leah, the oldest of the quintuplets. And finally the last of the quintuplets is Jamie, the fourth of the five. Standing next to the quintuplets are the twins, Shavonne and Will. Shavonne hangs on to her slightly older brother Will. For mixed gender twins, they seem rather close. The twins are my Aunts fifth and sixth children. Next to the twins is Alphonso, the seventh child. Alphonso is behind his big brother, third born, Alex Smith who is going to med school.
The second photo is of my Grandfathers second child, his only son, My Uncle Danial Blackbot an his family. Seated on the bench is Danial Blackbolt and his pregnant wife Erika. Erica is pregnant for the fifteenth time. She is about five months into her last pregnancy, they are expecting four more little girls. Once they are born, my Aunt will have had twenty-five little girls in her eighteen years of marriage to my Uncle. They have been trying for a son but they found out that the quadruples are all girls. My Aunt and Uncle are a little disappointed that they wont have a son, but are happy with their girls. And who knows, Aunt Erica is only thirty-six so can still try another time. All I know is that even after twenty-one children, Aunt Erica has maintained a small a petite shape. Anyways onwards, in the back left is Alicia, the first daughter, holding her current youngest little sister Lily. Lily is the younger twin of the couples youngest twins. Next to Alicia is Chandra, fifth born, holding Sahara, Lilys twin. Though the twins are dressed the same and have the same hair style, I can actually tell them apart. First of all Lily is a lighter complection then her twin, actually has the fairest skin of her sisters. Next Lily has a cute mole under her right eye, although you can not see it in the photo. And lastly Lily has her mothers adorable pale blue eyes, while Chandra takes after her grandfather and has his golden brown eyes like I have. In front of Alicia in the black is Sandy, Ericas tenth daughter. Next to Sandy in the pink is Robin and Sitting down is Lacy. Robin and Lacy are twins with Robin being the older of the two. They are the thirteenth and fourteenth born. Lying on the floor is Daisy, slightly older than the twin at number twelve. And lying next to her big sister is little Donna, Danial and Ericas eighteenth daughter. In the middle with her arms out is Beth, daughter number six. Next to Beth is the couples first twins, Kaylah and Kelsey. Kaylah, the younger of the two, is holding on to her twin sister Kelsey. They are from their mothers second pregnancy. Next to Kaylah and Kelsey is Karen, the fourth daughter and she is holding Jenifer. Jenifer is the couples nineteenth daughter. In front Jenifer are the couples oldest triplets. Shay is In yellow, she is the middle triplets. Jeanette is in purple and is the youngest. And Karina is the oldest in Orange. They are the seventh through ninth daughters. Sitting down next to both sets of triplets is Allison, the eleventh born. Last are the youngest triplets, girls fifteen through seventeen. In front of Alison is Abbey, the oldest. Erin is sitting in the middle but is the youngest. And Maricela is the cutie biting her hand. Marcella has her moms eyes which is the only way I can tell her apart from Abbey. I can’t believe that they are able to manage so many children between the two of them.
And finally the last photo. My Grandfathers youngest daughter Cindy Swartz. Cindy is a few months younger than my mom, she was conceived a few night before her father was arrested for rape. She never met her father like my mother and her sisters. Only Roxanne and Danial got to know their father. Anyways Cindy is in the arms of her husband Hassan Swartz. They only had one daughter together Amanda Swartz. Amanda had two children with her high school sweet heart and now ex-boyfriend. In her arms is Melody. Sitting in front of her grandparents is Melinda. And that’s everyone.
Throughout the party, I met and had a few conversations with a few of my relatives. When I wasn’t being forced to meet this person or that person, I would just stand back and watch my babies. Emma and Lana clung together with my mom, if you pulled one more than a few feet apart from the other, they both got rather fussy.
Tammy, Crystal and Will, on the other hand, were fascinated with Brandie. You see at some point or another, Brandie brought out one of her guitars and started to play. I still can’t belive it, Brandie, Brandie Rivera, the famous rock star is standing in front of me playing for her Aunts birthday.
Eventually all good things come to an end and about a week and a half of partying, we eventually made our way back home.
Time went by rather fast after my grandmothers celebration and before I knew it a whole year had passed. A few changes happened over the previous year. First Lilah had another pair of twins, two girls this time. Kaylee and Katelynn. Along with having two precious girls, Lilah also got a big role on a popular tv sitcom. Then there is the move. Both Lacey and Heather were doing so well in their careers that they both received promotions and would have to transfer to a small community a few hours away from the city. Lacey suggested that I move along with them, that it would be good for my health and the children.
I thought about it for a while, and decided that even though there were some good memories I had here, that I had way to many bad ones. So I went with them.
The first few months was spent living at a small apartment complex while looking for a house large enough for all of us. Things were good. Heather got into another casually intimate relation with another co-worker. I found out the hard way again as I walked in on them one time. Her promiscuous life style is defiantly something she inherited from Aunt Kira.
Heather wasn’t the only one who found a new relation, Lacey got into her first official relation with a young man named Angel Olsen whom she met the local bistro. And that relation seemed to flourish fast as Angel was coming over more frequent and they became more affectionate. Though as affectionate as the got, Lacey never gave herself to him. She said that as much as she wanted him, she wouldn’t give away her virginity until she was married. That was something I could respect about my big sister, but then only a few months into their relation they had news to share, they were engaged.
One night, only a few day after their big engagement celebration, Lacey did not come home. Heather wasn’t too worried because she had her boy toy, but I was getting worried. It wasn’t like my sister to stay out that late, even after she started seeing Angel. It was early the next morning, roughly some time after two-thirty, when I heard the front door shut. I had just began to doze off, after the noise coming from Heathers room subsided, so I was just about to fall asleep when I heard Laceys door open. I hurried quietly, as to not wake my little ones, to dress myself and meet my sister. But before I could get to the door, the noises started up again.
I sat out in the living room that night for a while, I couldn’t sleep. There is something about hearing your cousin making love in your sister’s room that just disturbed me. After what seemed like an eternity, the passionate noises of lovemaking died down and I thought that I could finally return to my room for some shut-eye. I started down the hallway when Laceys door flung open and Lacey came flying out of her room in the nude. I didn’t think she expected anyone else to be up and upon seeing me she jumped then attempted to conceal her privates. We exchanged awkward glances as she passed me on her way to the bathroom.
I went and laid down on my bed, still a little shocked at what my sister probably had been doing. A few minutes later there was a soft knock at my door. “Lins, you still awake?” I heard Lacey ask in a whisper. I didn’t respond, I didn’t know what to say. “Linsey?” she whispered again.
“Yeah” I responded.
“Can I come it?” she asked
“Sure” I said “just make sure you are dressed”
Lacey laughed a little before opening the door and entering. “Hi” she said in a whisper trying not to wake the little ones.
“Hey” I replied.
“soo… umm… I… I guess I should apologize for running into you like that” she said.
“Its okay, it’s not like you haven’t had to see me in all my glory” I replied
Lacey snorted out a small laugh. “So are we good?” she asked
“Yeah we’re good” I said. Lacey smiled and reached over to give me a hug. “Soo… what happened to waiting until your married?” I teased.
“WHat!?! Oh god! please don’t tell me you saw…” she panicked
“No no” I interrupted. “I just heard you”
“Oh god im sooo sorry” Lacey replied
“So not waiting?” I asked again
“well.. um… I’m married” she shouted while lifting her hand.
“Shhh, you’ll wake the babies” I whispered. “Wait, what? Your married?” I asked. It just dawned on me what she said.
“Yes” she giggled, hugging me again. “Angel and I eloped last night, You’re the first person I told” she said
I was filled with a mix of emotions. First I was still kind of disturbed having to hear first my cousin in the thralls of passion, but then hearing my sister’s wedding night. Then obviously there was immense joy. My sister had just gotten married, I mean who wouldn’t be happy. Then lastly there, in the pit of my stomach, was jealousy. Why was she able to experience so much bliss and joy while I’m left with all the heartache. I know im a bad person for feeling that way, but I just couldn’t help it.
After all was said and done, along with quite a few congratulations on my part and many hugs, Lacey returned to her room to be with her newly wed husband. I went to bed to try to get some sleep before one of my little ones wake up.
The next few days are spent calling family and friends to let them know of the good news that my sister had. It was also a time for me to reconnect with Alex Miranda. I meet Alex at my grandmothers big get-together. He is a cousin of some sort to me. He is my Grandma Annas brother Jimmy Harthrowes daughter Susana Mirandas son. Alex is also a writer like myself and we decided to try to collaborate together on a new project.
Alex was a busy man, traveling here and there, on his late grandfathers old political funds, taking in sights to inspire his writing. So it wasn’t long before he made a trip down to visit me. We meet a few times that week at the local coffee shop, while Lacey and Angel stayed home and watched the kids. It was on one of those meets, that Alex didn’t have the courtesy to attend, that I meet someone new.
As I was sitting there, a young man approached and sat down at the table with me. He introduced himself to me as Damion and tried a few cheesy pick up lines. I liked the attention and soon found myself sharing a meal with him just casually conversing over lunch. I had such a great time that after the meal we decided to change numbers, maybe meet up on a later day when im not as busy.
A few days later I got a call from Alex letting me know that a few ideas that I came up with were approved by a popular publicist. He explain that he forgot to tell me that he had set up a few meeting that day to try to get funds for my project, that’s why he bailed on me. He told me that he would be happy to help out if I ever got stuck, but he said that with my writing skills, he doubts that he will have to. The news was great for I lost my old publicist a few months after the triplets were born.
And that wasn’t the only good news I got. A few hours later I got a call from Damion, he wanted to take me out to dinner. Lacey and Angel volunteered to watch the kids while I was out and even though I did not know Angel well, he was now married to my sister and she loves and trusts him with all her heart. So I went to dinner with Damion and had a very good time.
The next morning was met with more good news. As I waited for my turn for the bathroom, I was bombarded with squeals of joy as Lacey came rushing out of the bathroom. She only had a towel on and she had in her hand a positive pregnancy test.
“I’m pregnant I’m pregnant I’m pregnant I’m pregnant I’m pregnant” she squealed pulling me close for a hug.
“That great” I smiled trying to reattached her falling towel. Seeing her naked once this month was more than enough for me.
“I cant wait to tell Angel” she said bolting from both myself and her towel as she ran down the hall to her room. And again I heard her scream in excitement that she was pregnant to her husband.
Damion and I continued to see one another going on a few dates over the past few weeks when one stormy afternoon he came by for a visit. Lacey, Angel and Heather were out and I had just gotten the kids down for a nap. SO I figured it would be nice to spend a little time with my boyfriend. We were cuddling on the couch watching tv when he snuck a kiss. It wasn’t uncommon for Damion to sneak a kiss or two, but what happened next caught me off guard.
“I love you Linsey” he said nuzzling his nose against mine. “I love you so much” he exclaimed.
I paused there, my face bright red with embarrassment. I didn’t know what to say but an “I love you too” eventually squeaked out of my lips, and with that I gave him a kiss aswell. We began sharing more kisses and our movement bumped the tvs remote and almost if someone or something was trying to tell us something, a porno came on to the screen. Heather liked watching those programs with her boy-toy and im sure Lacey watched them too before meeting Angel so we paid the extra for those channels. I’m not going to deny that watching a porno with my boyfriend didn’t excite me, I know it excited Damion as he became a little hansey.
It wasn’t long before the kisses became more passionate and my body tingled with passion as Damions hands found their way around my body. It wasn’t to surprising that I found myself undressing him as he did the same to me, and before long we were making out in our undergarments. We made out for quite some time and before long I found one of his hands down my panties. As his hand made its way to my groin, I began to cry. I don’t quite know why I did, but Damion noticed and abruptly stopped pulling his hand out.
“Whats wrong babe? If you don’t want to do this we don’t have to” he said. “I just kind of got caught in the moment. You know with that porno playing and how beautiful you are” I just sniffled a little, tears still falling down my cheeks. Many repressed memories came flooding back into my mind. Things that had happened to me and happened after becoming intimate. Damion rested my head gently on his strong shoulder. “Its okay, we don’t have to do this” he said soothingly. “Ill still love you all the same”
After hearing that I don’t know what came over me. The tears and sniffles stopped. Was it because the naughty movie that we were, accidentally, watching excited me? Or was I just some horney little slut who felt special because of the attention I was getting. But either way I found myself not acting like my shy reserved self. “Protection” I said
“What?” Damion said as he looked a little confused.
“DO you have any protection?” I asked again while firmly placing my hand on his private. Damions face lit up as he pulled me close for a kiss before reaching down to his pants pulling out his wallet and ultimately the protection I was asking for.
It wasn’t long before we were both in the buff and I was putting his protection on him. And then after a little bit of touching I spread my legs open and guided him in me. As we made love on the couch, I found myself gazing into his lustful yet loving eyes thinking that he could be the one.
