Reid decides to make use of his evening off by getting some brewskies with his estranged sister, Dorothy Pelletier.
The siblings meet up in the Old Quarter Inn.
"Dorothy! You're here at last." She smiles awkwardly, "Oh you know, I was back in the neighbourhood..."
Reid snaps into older brother mode, "Oh cut the B.S. sis, ya don't return my calls, ya ignore invitations to family stuff, ya haven't even met your niece!"
Harley Simms has some exciting news.
She tells her husband post workout, "I'm inviting everyone around tonight, so don't fill up on leftovers."
Mackay, Maxwell and Bjorn arrive within a few minutes.
"I wanted to make the announcement over dinner, but I can't wait anymore..."
"I saw the doctor today, I'm PREGNANT!" - "What! Holy crap, that's amazing!" Mackay gasps.
He hugs his s
The house guests have left and Maxwell is asking Bjorn about the events that have just occurred.
"Argh, what am I going to do to come back from this? Mackay got really pissed."
Bjorn muses, "I don't know... I think you can fix it all pretty easily."
Maxwell frets, "But we never fight, not like this, he's convinced I've been lying to him."
Bjorn replies, "Maybe not lying, possibly being deceptive? But

"Can I ask you a question?" Says Bjorn.
"What's wrong?" Maxwell says with concern.
Bjorn looks into Maxwell's eyes, "I am thinking of having my daughters visit tomorrow. Do you think that'
The evening draws to a close after a leisurely day.
Bjorn has just returned home, and is still dressed in his CIA business-wear.
He leans in and speaks quietly, "So, I've got a friend coming over tonight..."
"Oh! Do you need the place to yourself? I can stay upstairs." Says Mackay.
Bjorn elaborates, "Well actually, I'd rather you join us, if you have no plans that is." - "Hmm! I guess I'm not doing an
Maxwell is the first to wake that morning.
He greets the kitchen of his brand new apartment. Hmm... Not a bad start, but it could use some upgrades.
He decides to make the most of this alone time by checking out this new upscale neighbourhood.
While different, the facilities comes up somewhat lacking in comparison to the less commercial districts.
Back home Bjorn is practicing chess. After living in s
Maxwell and Mackay are inspecting their new apartment.
It is a high rise penthouse located in the Uptown district of San Myshuno.
"Woah, you get a great view of the lake from up here!" Remarks Mackay.
Maxwell is just as awestruck, "The ad online wasn't kidding about the scenery-"
"Or the downstairs swimming pool."
He leads his husband upstairs, "You don't even know the best pa
Maxwell and Mackay have spent the evening talking together about recent events, namely the possibility of custody of Bjorn's kids and what effect it may have on their relationship.
The two have agreed that no matter what happens, they will try to do what's best for everyone involved.
Beyond that, the couple are feeling close and are happy to have the time to just talk.
"Then right after the sex it hit me, the recipe for gumm
Last time Tyrian propositioned Bjorn to attempt to dominate him in his private BDSM dungeon.
Having previously had sex with the younger man, and only just divorced his wife, Bjorn felt inclined to accept the invitation.
Tyrian starts by having Bjorn strap him to the X-frame. "So from now on you are in control, we can use any of the stuff in this room."
Bjorn asks, "Is it okay if I just touch you like this for a while?"
When we last left off, Maxwell was trying to distract Bjorn from his misery after having just divorced his wife, Clara. A very sad Bjorn would rather go home and cry in bed, but he has no such luck.
Instead they received an invitation from Harley hoping to cheer Bjorn up at the current romance festival.
Bjorn is understandably offput by this idea, "Really, literally ANY other event would have been more appropriate." - "You'll be sad if you go home,
The three Sims reconvene at the bar in Planet Honey Pop.
Mackay is the first to comment, "I can't believe you tranquillised Clara, that was entirely unnecessary." Bjorn defends, "I felt like the confrontation was over."
"No really, that was not cool." Says Maxwell.
Bjorn snaps back, "Oh like you can talk Maxwell, it all started to go bad the moment you inserted yourself into the conversation."
That morning Mackay started his day bright an early,
with a refreshing morning jog around the neighbourhood.
Maxwell prefers to sleep in on his days off, undeterred by the sunrise.
This is not the usual morning for Bjorn, who has been rehearsing in the mirror since he awoke hours ago.
"No, no... Stupid." He self-criticises.
Finally emerging from the bedroom, Maxwell grabs of bo
Maxwell is engaged in a neighbourly game of chess with his sister-in-law.
While he may be playing happily, Harley has a pressing question on her mind. "Maxwell can I ask you something?"
"Sure, what's troubling you?" He obliges. - "Well, I wanted to ask after the wedding, but things have changed so much, I wasn't sure..."
"I guess I am wondering, what's your end game here, and no, I'm not talking about chess." - "Oh... Then w
That morning Mackay catches Bjorn returning from a walk around the block. "Hey, I wasn't kidding last night about going out for lunch today, go put your suit on." He orders.
Bjorn can't think of any reason not to go, and so he concedes. Besides, his bite wounds have healed right up.
It is nice to get out of the house, and Mackay had been treating Bjorn so kindly lately.
Just look straight ahead and pretend your niece is not
Bjorn and Maxwell have the day to themselves while Mackay is at work. They decide to explore The Bluffs with Bjorn's new friend. The bite mark on his neck grows uncomfortable throughout the day, but he tries to ignore it.
"Oh my god, that old guy's dick is enormous, and this was last night?" Maxwell admires Tyrian's candid photography.
The three discover the ruins and decide to go for a swim.
"Oooh that looked painful! 10 ou
Bjorn has some thinking to do. He decides to call a meeting of The Good Timers. Did I say thinking? I meant to say drinking.
The newest member, Tyrian is in attendance along with the old faces, Dominic, Mila and Jacques.
The club enters The Shrieking Llama to grab some warm up drinks.
Mila, former neighbour and Windenburg native, greets Bjorn hospitably, "How are your beautiful wife und den kinder?"
That morning Bjorn woke up first, he encounters Maxwell fresh out of bed.
He whispers to him, "Last night Mackay kissed me, not just a peck either..."
Bemused, Maxwell teases him. "Did you like it?"
"I bet you did,"
"you dirty man."
Bjorn answers, "I guess... I don't know how I feel."
Maxwell looks up at his gorgeous coc
The last post left off at a sad point, so this time we start at a lighter place.
The trio of Sims are exploring a SPOOOOOKY mansion! The look on Bjorn and Mackay's face conveys that Maxwell is responsible.
The door to the mansion creeks open as they are welcomed inside by a disembodied voice.
Drapes cover all of the windows, keeping out what little light passes through the dirty glass. A strange aura permeates. Who could liv
We open with Maxwell having just finished a workout. Ever since aging up, he has become more self conscious. Edging closer to becoming an elder means he can't rely on his youthful good looks in his mind.
Mackay thinks his husband is being silly. He looks good, and he can prove it.
He wants Maxwell to see what he sees.
However, it does not work. Maxwell can't stand his reflection and insists that they move to the bed.
A new morning has dawned in the Simms household. All three sims, Bjorn, Mackay and Maxwell have plans for today.
Bjorn takes a shower, washing away the residue from the night before.
He scrubs up nicely! Looking very smart as he heads out the door for a day of work as a secret agent.
Mackay plans to spend the day with the Sim City Orchestral Society Club. The members meet at Casbah Gallery in the Arts Quarter.
From across the cityscape of San Myshuno the evening rolls in over a pink sunset.
Two sims stand at the large window of their top floor apartment.
The spectacle of the view escapes them-
Distracted in their personal world.
Mackay and Maxwell feel very happy about the day that they have had with Maxwell's new partner Bjorn.
Although it seems a nice time to rest, but it is n
When we last left off Maxwell was discussing his polyamorous lifestyle with the man he had been recently dating, Bjorn Bjergsen. Maxwell had given him the ultimatum, accept his husband, Mackay is a part of Maxwell's life, or end their blossoming relationship now.
Bjorn is taken aback by what appears to be an uncaring decision. His initial reaction is despair.
Maxwell is sympathetic to this. It is hard for him as well because he is in love with Bjo
After the threesome the night before, Bjorn had left in a hurry. Maxwell and Mackay were unsure how Bjorn wanted to progress. Mackay did not have to wonder for long though, when Bjorn invited Mackay out for an actual "date" the next morning.
Our Sim was pleased with Bjorn's apparent carefree attitude.
Being Mackay, he likes to turn every social outing into a creative skill building exercise.
Mackay feels warmly towards Bjo
We join our Sims with Mackay having breakfast with his best friend and brother in law, Reid Peltier.
Reid has been Mackay's friend ever since they used to play basketball together as child and teenager.
Mackay would never admit it to Reid or his sister, but as a horny teenager, he thought of Reid as the ideal man, and was somewhat envious of Harley for dating him.
Nowadays Mackay is more secure in his relationship with
Maxwell and Mackay have been enjoying their life as a married couple. Being both gay and polyamorous, it is not without its trials. Even after Maxwell's amazing date he still goes back home to spend the evening with his husband.
Although he's tired and there's work tomorrow morning, Maxwell wants to perform his marital duties.
