Dear Liliya,

It’s difficult to write this letter because I’m still upset that you and Pasha wouldn’t come to Twinbrook for my wedding. I was hoping for a family celebration, a chance to introduce Arthur to the people I love most but obviously Pasha doesn’t approve.  I should be used to his disapproval by now but I can’t pretend that it doesn’t bother me.  Even as a child he would look down his superior nose at me, sneering at my attempts to keep up with his intellect.  I know that you must support your husband but, dear Liliya, your absence brought tears to my eyes on what should have been the happiest day of my life.

We were married in a quiet, private ceremony at City Hall. I invited Mother but she wasn’t well enough to attend. I hoped she would get better over time but I don’t think she’ll ever recover from Mikhail’s death. The doctors say that she is living in some kind of “suspended reality”, whatever that means. Arthur and I visited her shortly before we got married but we both walked away feeling confused and upset.

Our honeymoon in France was romantic but somehow Arthur seemed distant. After my nectar making lessons I often found him alone in the bookstore, with a scowl on his face, absorbed in his thoughts. Thankfully, we’ve stocked up on enough wine to last for months!

Ever since we got back from France I find myself feeling tired and listless. I’m sure it’s just a case of jet lag and stomach flu. Arthur is convinced it’s because I’m working too much and has decided that I should quit my job at the Bistro so I can focus on being a good mother to Eugene.  He’s very traditional and I do want to be a good Milford wife.

All my love,

  1. You’ve been prolific recently! I’m trying to move more quickly on my Slowest Legacy Evar, but I don’t know that anything is happening faster :).

    Somehow I think that Denver’s not made to be a Milford wife.

    I don’t know what to make of Arthur. He married her, so he must feel something. But he sounds like he’s not the kind of guy Denver wants to make him into.

    Oh, and Denver has stomach flu, eh?

    1. Actually, I’m trying to get caught up with my story — I’m so far ahead in the game, I need to finish Denver’s story before I get completely lost 😉 I think you’re the only person reading this Legacy, thanks so much for keeping me going!

      Yes, Arthur is definitely a strange one … Denver really does have a knack for choosing unlikely partners!

      1. This is one of the most creative and interesting challenges I read. I do hope you continue.

        I’m trying to catch up too, but you’re doing a better job. I’m a good half a generation behind, but I don’t want to stop playing. I am danged and determined to finish this legacy, and someday I’d like to have the option to move to Sims 4.

        1. Aw, thank so much! It’s comments like this that keep me going 🙂

          I’m also intrigued by Sims 4 but I don’t think my computer will be up for it …

          1. Sims 4 is supposed to have equal to or lower system requirements than Sims 3, actually. I think they did away with the open world, for all that I love it, because it just chewed up too many system resources.

  2. Hey, they’re already married! Too bad the groom seemed a little aloof during their honeymoon…

    And, Susan is not the only one reading this legacy ;-).
