So, Sammy, how are Mr and Mrs Grant?
Mum, Ashley was the best possible thing I could have gotten out of going to University. She's adorable and she adores me.
"Better catch this honey, I'm going to blow you a kiss."
"Ashley, I treasure every kiss you give me. Have I told you lately how much I adore you?"
"Not for at least 5 minutes, honey."
"Honestly, Sam. It doesn't matter. We have a home. We have enough money to get the baby what it will need. And I have you. That's what I really want."
"Let's not forget Berjes. He's been a great son since I adopted him."
Wished for him from a wishing well, Sam.
Same difference really.
"I like Berjes. If he gets along with the baby, maybe he'll babysit if we go out for a night."
Sammy, a new venue.
Yes, a coffeehouse just opened up and I've got the very first gig here.
Well, good luck. You can certainly use the money.
I'd love to change the ice cream shop background but I haven't the cash to buy and set up my own stage props.
And let's not mention how lame the music gets. It drives me nuts but I can't turn it off.
That alone makes this a good performance for me.
Damn, Sammy, you have been working out. That has to take a lot of strength.
Not just strength, you have to develop enough flexibility. It's no been easy to get here.
Wow, Sammy, you still have an audience at nearly the end of the performance.
Plus they all seem very enthused. Cheers and hand waves at every table.
I'm glad. This is the best damned show I've ever given.
I can tell Sammy. It's been excellent.
"Excuse me, Sammy the Spectacular, I'd like to offer you a weekly gig."
"Yes, Thursday nights starting at 6 pm are all yours."
"Thank you, I'll be here."
Congrats Sammy, you have a regular gig. That should make life a little easier.
Attack of the zombies? Looks a bit scary.
Are you kidding? All I have to do is walk away. He can't keep up at all.
Now might be a good time to prove that.
Okay, I walked inside. Zombie failed to stop me. Time for some food.
"I'm eating, can't it wait?"
"Sammy, babies don't like to wait."
"Oh god, baby? You want the hospital?"
"Yes, honey. Now."
Awww, it's a boy. Are you happy, Sam?
Of course I'm happy. Meet our new son, Larry.
Sammy? Is that Berjes new room?
He wouldn't want to share with the baby now, would he?
Yeah, but the colour scheme. Isn't that colour and that pattern a bit ... feminine?
I got that for free. When Berjes gets home, we can find him something more suitable. Bedspread and wallpaper.
I'm sure he is pleased to not have to share with the new baby.
It's a cute crib and the baby does have a room to itself. That would be something.
"Hey handsome, what's up?"
"Oh Sammy, stop. Any time you want to play, you can just ask."
"There's room. What's your act and stage name?"
"I'm an acrobat. Sammy the Spectacular."
"Just as soon as the magician is done, you're up. And at the rate she's going, it won't be long."
The audience didn't seem that thrilled by her. I was hoping she hadn't left them cold.
All right, I do still have problem with the fire baton. Good thing it's a flame retardant costume.
Your backside must nearly be flame proof as well.
Cami seemed quite impressed by the show, actually.
"Let's all thank Sammy the Spectacular. Next up, Ronnie Rotgut with a few of your favourite songs."
Hey Mum, later that evening, I found that I'd won the SimFest.
Well done, Sammy.
Berjes really is growing up well, Sammy.
And he likes Ashley quite a lot. It's good for both of them, Ashley doesn't know many people in town. Berjes has always wanted a proper family so having a step-mom makes him much happier.
Note, under normal circumstances, I would have followed Sam to the top of the profession. Unfortunately, the save was corrupted by sending him to University with some mods not really ready. After he got home, the crashes were more and more frequent.
So this comes to an end since I do have an older save that I can get Sam to the top of the profession without it crashing so much. But since that's before University, Ashley won't be there so that's why this story ends now.
I think Sammy did hate being embarrassed on stage. I've never seen him stop and bellow at the world quite so regularly as this one did. Just about every performance, until the last couple after Ashley came into his life.
