Chapter 3.6 – Mystery

The last thing I remembered, was having the wind blow in my hair, as I thought about how perfect my life was. That, however, was 9 months ago. 9 months ago, Drew and I had made passionate love….

Leading me to give birth to a beautiful baby girl! Only things this time were different; this baby girl was out of the ordinary. We had a home birth, but when we realized how our daughter looked like, we thought we should have went to the hospital. With her ocean colored eyes, and her hair different shades of bright blue, we wondered what was wrong with her. She never cried, and never begged for attention like all my other children had done. We brought her to a variety of doctors, but none of them had found anything in her.

“I’m not qualified for such a case,” was all I seemed to hear lately from doctors. I tried the Sunset valley’s children’s hospital, but that had been useless as well. Because of the mystery behind this child, and her Cyan colors, we decided to name her Aquamarine. She had been born with normal traits; Genius, and lover of the outdoors. Where had she gotten these genes? Did she have a disease? Was her life in danger? But most of all, How can I care for her? I had never seen someone like this, and Aquamarine rarely spoke to us. She knew how to talk without us even showing her. What was it I had created? Was she a monster? A creature? I had now idea.

One evening, Aquamarine was sleeping in her crib, and as I headed down the creaking stairs, Aaron came running to me.

“Mom, what’s wrong with Aqua? She’s so wierd!”

It was when I heard those words, I screamed to the rest of the family to meet up in the living room. I had to talk to them.

Once everyone was finally seated, I started to speak.

” I know Aquamarine is a little different from the rest of us, but still she’s human..”

I think…

“She’s a part of this family, and I don’t want you guys to say any mean comments to her is that clear?”

The children looked at me confused, and that’s when Drew started to talk.

“What your mother is trying to say here, is that Aqua is just like us. Just because she looks a little different it doesn’t mean you have to ignore her. She is your sister, and in this family we look out for each other. So you kids treat her the same way you would treat any other family member, and just keep her company.”

The kids all nodded, hugged both their father and I and then ran out of the room; all of them doing the things they loved.

Being so busy, I hadn’t noticed how quickly the kids birthdays had come! Ashley was becoming a school-aged girl, and Alessia was to bloom into a teenager!

Ashley’s giggles filled the room, as she blew out her candles. It was in no time, she grew up to a child! She was really happy to have become a school-aged girl, but still compared to all my other children, she was quiet with the joy that filled her.

The same exact day, Alessia was to grow up into a teenager. She was screaming and jumping up with joy. She cheered as she blew out her candles, and when the sparkles turned her in circles she laughed to the point she could barely breathe. Once the transformation was finally over, she realized how tall she had grown! I thought she was old enough to pick out her own wardrobe, style, and room. After all the shopping we had done, I was barely able to recognize my daughter! I was starting to realize Alessia was the wild type of girl. With her black hair and green streaks and crazy clothes, I had a feeling she was going to be a handful to take care of in her teenage years. There was a part of me that wanted to say no to all her crazy ideas and plans, but I had promised her that she can choose everything for her birthday. Besides, I remembered how I wanted to always have things my way when I was younger, so I figured I would let my own children have things that made them happy.

As every day passed, I spent time with Aquamarine. Drew was at work, and all my other kids were at school. I sat by Aqua’s crib and watched her sleep. I was able to stare at her for long periods of time, and still I wondered what she was. She never slept for a long time, it was usually small periods of half hour sleep. Still, none of the family members had taughtΒ  her to walk or talk, but one late afternoon I heard her speaking. She was alone in her room, sitting in a corner and there she was speaking! Some part of me wanted to burst into the room, and demand to know what she was saying, but the other part of me wanted to stay out in the hallway unaware of what power this child had. Was I going crazy? I was treating my own daughter as if she were a creature from some other world! This was my daughter for crying out loud, and I was going to give her as much care as I can.

Being so busy with Aquamarine, I had little time left for all my other children. I tried my best to spend time with all of them, but still having five kids wasn’t the easiest task to take on.

Alessia had become so good at playing the guitar and she picked up new songs quickly. Ever since she was a little girl, I knew she had a talent for music. Maybe it was because of her Virtuoso characteristic, but I really think I sensed her talent coming. When she was alone, I would here her strumming onto the strings of her guitar, humming to a lovely song. Those moments however, were rare. Most of the time she played the guitar it was loud, and energetic. Her screaming as she played, sometimes annoyed me, but I did hint a nice voice in all that noise. Who knew where she was going later on in life, but I knew she would always have her music by her side; it was never going to leave her.

Ashley was the total opposite of Alessia. Alessia was loud and filled with crazy ideas. Ashley was quiet and calm. She would stay in her room, reading book after book so that’s when I suggested she should write her own stories and now she spent all her time on the computer, typing away her creative ideas. Sometimes I would read parts of her writings, but there were some creations she didn’t want me reading. I allowed her to have her personal space, and figured maybe she was just writing a journal or a secret diary. Just like every other girl her age.

Because time was speeding by, Aqua was soon going to turn into a child and I had to teach her all the basics in life. Talking hadn’t been a problem; she always repeated the word I said perfectly. Walking, on the other hand, had taken more time and effort. It seemed as if her little legs didn’t want to cooperate, and had no coordination. After long hours of practice, however, she started getting the hang of it, and she was soon walking all over the house.


Today was Aaron and Andrew’s birthday, so I woke up extra early to prepare the birthday cakes and gifts. I walked across the marble floors, and slowly I started putting in candles into the cakes. I was so concentrated into decorating the cakes, that I hadn’t noticed the whole family ready to celebrate the birthdays!

Both Andrew and Aaron made wishes, and eagerly blew out their candles!

My eyes were filled with tears as I looked at my wonderful boys become grown teenagers. they had changed so much in so little time! They were taller than me, they looked like grown men, and their voices had such big change. Where had gone my little boys?

As my children grew up, I had less responsibilities to take on, so I decided that I wanted to learn more about ym daughter Aquamarine. At first, I took her to the beach, wanting to see how she would react to other people, the ocean, and sand. Their weren’t many people around, so I didn’t get to see Aqua in public, but I did notice something else. She went straight for the water. The hot sand beneath her skin didn’t seem to bother her. All she was interested in was the ocean water. I had to run to catch her before she crawled into the water.

I thought bringing Aqua near the water might be a dangerous procedure, so instead we went down to Central Park. There was a slight, cool breeze as I strolled across the grass, carrying Aquamarine. I gently put her down, but nothing special happened. She sat by my feet, watching people pass by.

Because Central park hadn’t been a great success, I strolled down to a public pool. I stayed close to Aquamarine, as I put her down on the floor. It was within a second, and she was walking quickly towards the pool. I ran towards her, and scooped her up right before she had the chance to reach the water.

Was my daughter somehow attracted to water? Maybe it was a normal toddler thing to do, and maybe I was just the one exaggerating things. But what if Aquamarine really did have something with water?

The kids weren’t coming home from school in another two hours, so I figured I might as well try one last place to visit. I brought Aquamarine to a lake, right outside Sunset Valley. Once we got there, a placed her onto the soft grass and looked as she walked slowly over to the water. She sat right by the lake, and looked up at me. I wasn’t able to read the expression on her face. She stared at me, and then back to the water, and I could see the look in her eyes; a look filled with power.


After testing out a few places with Aquamarine, I wanted to tell Drew all about it.

“You should have seen her! She was automatically attracted to water, and I had to run and pick her up.”

“Honey, she’s never seen such a vast area of water, it’s normal for her to feel the want of exploring the outdoors.”

“Drew you don’t understand. The look in her eyes…it was so powerful! as if she can control me or something!”

“I think you need to calm down a little. Besides, Aquamarine is going to become a child soon and she’ll be able to tell us more about her thoughts. You don’t have to worry about a thing. And as a doctor myself, I know that things with our daughter are going right on track. Everything is fine.”

He kissed my forehead and walked out of the room. I wasn’t exactly satisfied with what I was getting, so I decided to take matters into my own hands. Doctors all over Sunset Valley were ignoring this situation, and know one was seeing what I saw. This was my daughter we were talking about, and I demanded answers.

I read book after book, trying to find any clue to what my daughter may be, or what she may have.

But I went onto the computer to find the answer I truly wanted…

After reading those exact words, Aquamarine was the only thing on my mind. As the members of the family took great care of her, I watched. Every single thing she did I observed and questions piled up in my mind.

It seemed like it was yesterday that my baby girl was born, but today Aquamarine was become a school-aged child! I had prepared a cake, and decorations, ready to celebrate. Aquamarine took time to make a wish, as she stared down at her cake. A few minutes later, she blew out her candles, and began to spun in a tornado of sparkles. The next thing I knew, Aquamarine had grown up, and she stared at us as we stared at her. There was an awkward silence that filled the room, as if we were strangers…

    Gosh, Andrew looks a lot like Drew, doesn’t he? But both he, and Aaron are handsome young men, especially Aaron! Can someone say sim-crush? πŸ˜› Alessia looks gorgeous as well, I can’t wait to see what sorts of trouble she gets into πŸ™‚

    • xcin100x says:

      Hey Tessa ! Thanks for reading & commenting ! πŸ™‚ I guess I just wanted to add some type of mystery to this legacy, and well thats when Aquamarine comes along haha.

      Now that you mention it, Andrew really does look like Drew! I had never really paid attention to it before. I think sim-crush is possible .. well I surely allow it ! πŸ™‚ Alessia I think you can say is yoru typical teenage girl! haha πŸ™‚

    Ooooooh, Interesting… I liked the little page that you edited together on wikipedia… oh I mean simipedia xD I see underneath, you’d edited a page about mermaids… I don’t think she’s a mermaid xcin100x… xD

    Although I do like the mystery thing in your legacy… it’s differant… I like it πŸ™‚ Keep up the good work!

  6. aziaziazia says:

    I can’t believe that Aqua’s siblings would act like that towards her! I know that she is unusual, but she’s still family. I wonder what she could be though…

    Although this is my first comment, I have been reading for awhile now. I am just not the type to comment.

    My blog:

    • xcin100x says:

      Hey Azia! I’m happy to hear that you’ve been reading along. Yes Aquamarine is definitely different from the others ;P

      I’ll be sure to check out your blog πŸ™‚

      Thanks for commenting,

  7. A lot of Legacies I’ve read are constant drama, and it’s always the same kind of drama.
    Your legacy has drama, happiness, very sweet moments, and amazing plots! It’s really unique, and I love your style of writing!
    Please keep writing till the very end, and then some! πŸ™‚

    • xcin100x says:

      Hey choco! Thank you for all the really nice comments. I try to be as original and unique as possible by having different types of plots and storylines going on. Trying to please everyone!
