Chapter 2.5 – Letting Go

I couldn’t believe what was happening right now. Life seemed to really be perfect … until all this happened. Dallas is like the main suspect of the crime, and so he’s on probation; he can’t leave the house. We’ve been to court a few times already, but I don’t have enough money to get ourselves a decent lawyer. I know Dallas, and I know he would never hurt anyone. Yes he had a deep voice, a good built, and a scary look, but never would he hurt anyone, let alone kill them. Never once did I ask him if he did it. I didn’t need to, because I knew the answer. Even if I never asked, he never told me anything and always avoided the subject. Plus with the baby on the way, I couldn’t wait for all this to be over. I wanted Dallas to be there at the hospital, and carry our child. I need Dallas.


Days passed, and Miley kept working hard in the fields no matter how tired she was our how much her back ached. One hot afternoon, Miley felt great pain. It was time, the baby was coming. She would’ve had a home birth, but since it was the first child she needed things to be under control, so she headed over to the hospital. Dallas couldn’t be there, because of his tight probation. Security and police didn’t allow him to leave the house, not even for the birth of his first child.

The birth was short and sweet. Miley gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. She was born with the traits of genius, and insane. When Miley arrived home, she and Dallas decided to name her Savannah.

When I saw Savannah being held by Dallas, I was so close to crying. Dallas who was big, and rough, held her like the most precious thing he’d ever seen. The look in his eyes was priceless, and he kept whispering in her ear something in his own language; rakastan merkitse et mitä. I had no idea what it was, and decided not to ask. Instead, I decided it was going to be something they shared, between a father, and his little girl.


Dallas was the one who re-modeled Savannah’s room. It was bright, and colourful; full of life.

Sean was nearly 85 years old now, and didn’t do many things around the house. No matter how much he hated Dallas, he loved Savannah. There was something about her that was just so peaceful.

Amber however, stayed away from Savannah. No matter how cute and loving she was, Amber hated Dallas, and hated her sister for allowing him into their lives. If ever she saw Amber, there was always a part of her that wanted to scoop her up and play with her, but instead she remained distant and walked away. At first, Miley felt hurt by those actions, but she quickly learned it was better that way. She didn’t want her loving daughter to be influenced by Amber.

Savannah grew up faster than everyone expected. They didn’t have time to throw a party, or buy balloons and cake. When Miley looked at her closely, she saw her twin sister, Mackenzie. The two girls looked so much alike.

Dallas was a whole different man when he was around Savannah. He was kind, and gentle he was protective and caring. He continued whispering a phrase in her ear; rakastan merkitse et mitä. I looked at both of them, and I noticed tears filling Dallas’ eyes but when I came closer he turned away.

Amber was working hard in the politics career. She was now a Lawyer, and because she liked that job so much, she didn’t really care about promotions. Instead she stayed up late working on different files and cases.

That night, I cried myself to sleep for today was the first Sunday where I slept with Dallas by my side. It had been one week from the murder, and Dallas was still the number one suspect. I didn’t understand, because he wasn’t the only one at Morgan’s house – well that’s what he told me and I believe him. After seeing Dallas with Savannah, I’m completely convinced that he wouldn’t hurt anyone. He was such a softy deep down, I had trouble believing it myself.

I woke up next morning, and Dallas wasn’t in bed. It was really early, but I headed downstairs to find him. I didn’t see him in the living room, and when I went in the kitchen, I saw a note on the counter. It read…


Dear Miley,

The court has decided, and it’s over. I plead guilty, and there’s nothing the lawyer can do. I love you very much, but this will have to be the end. What I love most about you, is that you never asked me if I killed her. No matter what happened in court, you always trusted me. I’m going to be in SimCity Rocky Road Prison. I know you’ll have to tell Savannah about me, and I’m truly sorry for that, but no matter what happens, let her know that I’ll always love and think about her.

Love,

Dallas.

I stayed sitting at the kitchen table, not realizing what was happening. I guess I stayed there for a long time, because Sean was already awake and making a cup of coffee. He sat across the table in silence.  He looked down to my hand and I can see his expression once he saw the ring. I usually wore it for special occasions, but I guess I forgot to take it off. I didn’t care anymore what my dad thought of Dallas, so I told him the truth.

Miley: Yes we’re married.

Sean: Since when?

Miley: Nearly two years.

Sean: I can’t believe it. Your mom would be so disappointed in you. Dallas isn’t a good man, and poor Savannah will have to grow up telling her friends that her father is a selfish Indian

Miley: Just shut up.

There was a moment of silence. Miley never talked to her father that way, and Sean was completely shocked. Miley no longer cared what people thought of her. In fact she didn’t care about anything now. Sean simply left, feeling hurt, and betrayed.

Once the sun arose, Miley received a phone call.

Miley: Hello..?

Lawyer: Miley, I’m sorry to tell you, but the case is closed.

Miley: I know.

Lawyer: I’m very sorry, I know how much you loved each other

Miley hung up, without letting the Lawyer finish speaking.

Miley was extremely stressed lately. She barely ate, and slept few hours. She no longer worked out in the fields, and slowly everything she had worked so hard on was dying. She visited a doctor, and was given some anti-depressant pills. She took them twice a day, and it allowed the pain to go away. She fell asleep at any time of the day, and she couldn’t stand the pain of looking at Savannah. When she looked at her little girl, she saw Dallas.

Because Amber was becoming a good lawyer, I decided to ask her for help. I wanted her to get Dallas out of jail, and I would do whatever it took for her to agree on taking the case.

Miley: Amber, I know we haven’t talked much during the past months but I really think you can get Dallas out of jail.

Amber: So you ignore me for all this  time and now you want to use me for your own pleasure?

Miley: It may seem that way, but really it isn’t. We’re sisters and I realized that sisters need to stick together and stand up for each other. Your my last hope.

Amber: Besides I can’t take a case like this. I’ve never worked with crime scenes and murders. In case you didn’t know, I’m a workers compensation lawyer, all I do has to do with how an employee is treated at work. Besides, I told you from the start that Dallas was a bad man, but you ignored me.

Miley: So this is what it’s all about? I told you so?

Amber: I’m just saying, I was right.

Miley: Of course you are. You think you’re so perfect, and that you’re the best. Well wake up and smell the coffee, your wasting your life right now. I thought I would be able to count on you for a sisterly favor, but I guess that’s just another thing you’re not capable of doing. I thought we were sisters who stood up for each other. Well that’s how I remember mom raising us.

Miley left, unsure of what she just said. She wanted help from Amber, but instead of pleading, her anger came out and she totally ruined her chances.

Days passed, and Miley was now taking three pills a day. It numbed the pain, and allowed her to relax. She was often caught day-dreaming, unaware of what was going on around her. Savannah kept begging for attention,  but Miley didn’t seem to understand. She was fully awake, yet didn’t react. The lights were on, but nobody was home.

When Amber saw what was happening, she had to do something about it. She decided she would take care of Savannah because she deserved better than all this. She wanted Savannah to live a happy life, and so she took care of her. She did it for Savannah and not for Miley. Miley would watch them together, but nothing seemed to sink in. She started taking four pills per day. The garden was semi-dead, Sean was ignoring her, and Amber was taking care of Savannah. It was at the moment Amber knew what kind of mother Miley was about to become….

What kind of mom will Miley become? Stay tuned to find out ..

    I did not expect such drama with Miley. I kinda expected that Dallas was no good. Poor Savannah, I hope she grows up knowing her dad.

  3. tipix7 says:

    just a quick note: If you want to turn off thought bubbles (for better story telling) hold down shift, control, and the letter c. A box will appear in the top of the screen. Type in hideheadlineeffects on. Then hit enter.

    There’s also a mod at mod the sims that will get rid of those ZZZZ’s when they are sleeping.

    Oh boy, Miley’s sliding down the slippery slope. Amber seems to be doing a good deed, but I wonder if this just more of the same from her. Turning Savannah against her mother would be crossing the line.

  11. FuryGreen says:

    Am I the only one who thinks that Miley is a complete bad word.

    I find that she is my least favourite right now, along with Sean. Seriously, I have no sympathy for her!
