House 1-2 The Oldies
Herb Oldie: But what about the kids? How are the grandkids handling your separation?
Mary-Sue: They're handling it fine dad. And I like the way you didn't ask how I was handling things. How I was handling finding my maid bonking my husband in MY bed.
Coral: Now Mary-Sue. Let's not get vulgar. We all know what happened. You don't have to say it aloud.
Mary-Sue: That may be your way of handling things Mother, but I have chosen a different road. I won't bury my head in the sand and pretend that my husband is off playing poker when he's across the street doing the mailman's wife.
Mary-Sue: Hi dear. What are you doing here?
Angela: Grandma called. She said we should come over and clear the air.
Mary-Sue: Did she now. Daniel. I see you brought your *gasp*
Daniel: Now Mary-Sue.
Mary-Sue: How could you? You brought your pregnant mistress to my parents house. How could you?
Daniel: Lilith. Let it go. Why don't you go inside and have some of Coral's homemade cookies while your mother and I talk.
Mary-Sue: No. Don't Mary-Sue me. She's pregnant. How long have you known.
Daniel: Not long. It was a bit of a shock.
Mary-Sue: Is it even yours?
Daniel: Funny you asking that. Isn't that what my parents said when I told them we were getting married.
Mary-Sue: So that's it. You want to marry her.
Daniel: No. I don't. I want you to come home. I want us to be a family again. I love you Mary-Sue. I always have. I know I've screwed up but we can figure this out. We can make this work.
Mary-Sue: Right. Me, you and your mistress. I'm not my mother Daniel. I won't ignore what is going on underneath my nose. Not anymore. I know about the others but this one. I can't ignore this one. In our bed Daniel? You had to do her in OUR bed?
Mary-Sue: No. It's over. I want a divorce. I'll stay here with my parents for now. I'll take back my maiden name. You can marry her or live with her or just have her on the side. I don't care anymore. I can't care anymore. It's over Daniel. It's just over.
Lilith: But grandma.
Coral: Now dear, this is hard on all of you. I know that. But your mother has a lot to deal with just now. Give it a little time. If you still want to move in you'll be more than welcome. Just give your mom a little more time to heal.
Lilith: Yeah. Sure.
Mary-Sue: I'm not. It's none of his business.
Coral: Are you saying it's not his?
Mary-Sue: Mom. Of course not. But he has Kaylynn and the girls to deal with. I can handle this. And you won't tell him. In time....maybe....I'll tell him when the time is right.
(Author's Note: Prosperity Challenge means no reloading when bad things happen. I broke that rule on this lot. Not long after I had saved the game, Mary-Sue had a miscarriage. I couldn't take the broken look on her face. I exited without saving. I never do that. Even when just playing for fun but in this case I did. So Mary-Sue is having her baby. It will be an Oldie because I changed her last name. And thus the Oldie family will live on.)
