Gen 5- Chapter 6: Pineapple

{alt}

“Glaze…Why have you never mentioned this before?”

“Well…I am not exactly sure, it just kinda never came up and I was more concerned about getting to you before it was too late, and by the time I got to you it slipped my mind. I’m sorry Saff.”

My mother and father were right in the middle of a very heated conversation involving our Aunt Orange, in the hallway out side of my room. I don’t even think they realized I was in there. Being so close though, I heard the entire conversation perfectly.

{alt}

“Don’t say sorry to me. What about my poor sister. Oh my Berry, all this time and not even a thank you. She must think I am worst sister ever!”

“Sweetheart, I am sure she does not think that.”

“Well either way, I owe her a big thank you. Oh honey lets go see her! We can take the whole family! I think she most definitely deserves to meet the family she made possible.”

“I couldn’t agree more.”

{alt}

So needless to say I was not surprised when the entire family was called to the living room for a “group meeting”.

“Kids we are going to visit your Aunt Orange today. Make sure you are showered and ready to go, we are leaving in an hour.”

“Awwww but Mom?!”

“No buts Mika, this is a family trip, we are all going.”

“Sunny isn’t going…”

“Yes, well…Sunny doesn’t live here anymore, but you do.”

“Fine.”

{alt}

To everyone’s amazement, we were all ready to go with almost 15 minutes to spare. Even though Mika had a little moan before we left, I think secretly he was looking forward to the trip. I think we all were. We did not know much about her, only the horrible accident that had occurred, it was pretty much what had sent her over the edge. Rather sad story it was. A visit would probably be just the thing to brighten her day.

{alt}

Auntie Orange looked so surprised to see all of us there. I couldn’t get over how much she looked like mom. Auntie Pumpkin and Auntie Persimmon looked very little like mom and they were triplets!

{alt}

“Hey sis. Long time no see. Its been a while”

“Entirely too long. How are you? How is it here?”

“It’s great! Candi and I are quite happy here.”

“Oh… Candi is here too?”

“Oh, Yes.”

If I was not mistaken, Candi was the name of her friend who died in that fire, it all became very clear why she was still here. So, so sad.

{alt}

Once everyone was introduced, dad put out the picnic blanket and lunch he had packed for us. Auntie Orange looked simply overjoyed to be surrounded by her family again. It was pretty exciting to see us all together, one big happy family.

{alt}

“Listen sis, there is a reason we came to see you today. Orange, I think Glaze and I both owe you the biggest thank you ever. None of these guys would be here if it were not for you. I’m just sorry it has taken me this long to say it, and for that I am sorry.”

“No need to thank me. I love you sis.”

“I love you too.”

Suddenly Auntie Orange turned to look at the grass to her left. ” What was that? Oh right…Candi would like you to know that she thinks Symphony is beautiful.”

{alt}

I still have no idea if Candi really existed somewhere in Auntie Orange’s mind or somewhere else, but one thing she was right about, Symphony was looking quite adorable that day, so much so, I had to snap a picture.

“Smile for Papple, Symph!”

{alt}

“Mm’yello?”

“Papple? I mean Pineapple?”

“Yes?”

“Hey, its me Lime!”

“Oh hey you! How are ya?”

“I’m great! Remember when you said I should call if I was in town? Well… I am here!”

“Oh really?! Where abouts?”

“Ummmm, I am not too sure. It’s some purple and stripey thingy…”

“Ohhh Lemon-Mint. Stay there, I’ll meet ya.”

“Ok! Bye!”

{alt}

Lime was a good friend of mine. We met on Twizzler and she had pretty much been there for me through my whole Honey ordeal, she offered me nothing but incredible support and kindness, and I had desperately needed a lot of both. Lime also lived in Sugar Valley, so she even played messenger girl a few times, relaying messages to Honey.

It had completely slipped my mind she was going to be in town for the weekend, but I was definitely pleasantly surprised to get her phone call. We had talked for months, but had never actually gotten to meet.

{alt}

I recognized her almost instantly from her seeing her photo, but before I even had a chance to wave, she was running over to me and pulling me into a big bear hug.

“Hey you!”

“Hey Lime!”

{alt}

Goodness her photo did not do her justice, she was quite stunning and I can honestly say I was taken back by the sight of her. From the look on her face, I must have looked different too.

“Wow Lime…you look really nice.”

“Thank you. Its nice to finally get to meet you.”

“Ya. Totally.”

{alt}
{alt}

Seeing she had never been to “The Twizz” before, I gave her a grand tour of the Lemon-Mint. After her tour we took a seat near the water so we could chat. It felt nice to finally get to hang out. You know how I said if it weren’t for my sister, I probably never made it through the break up? Well it was more like if it was not for Symphony and Lime. I was deeply indebted to them both. We kinda helped each other in a way, around the same time of my break up with Honey, Lime’s step-dad passed away. It was a pretty hard time on us both.

“So how are you really?”

{alt}

“I have been feeling pretty good. How are things going for you? How is your mom?”

“She is better…”

“Thats good.”

I knew it was a bad idea to ask, but I just could not help myself. Even as the words started to come out of my mouth, my head was screaming. Shut up!!

“Have you seen Honey?”

“No. Her parents pulled her out of school about a month ago. She is being home schooled now.”

“Oh.” I replied as I got up from the bench.

{alt}

“You sure you are alright?”

“Ya. I’m sorry, I shouldn’t have asked. You are here to talk to me, not listen to me whine about Honey.”

“You don’t have to apologize to me. I totally get it. I can tell you still miss her. Its ok you know.”

“Its been almost 8 months.”

“So what?”

I turned to face her, I couldn’t help but smile.

“Thanks.”

{alt}

We walked around the Esplanade for a few hours, and then I walked her back to her hotel. She was staying at The Oatmeal Inn and in fact, was not far from the Esplanade.

“Thanks for walking me Papple. Its been a lot of fun.”

“Yea, it has.”

“You know if you ever need anything, I am here for you.”

She offered, as she reached out to touch my arm. Without thinking, I pulled away from her hand.

“Uh, ya, thanks.”

{alt}

It was obvious from her expression on her face, that my sudden jerk startled and slightly embarrassed her her. Her cheeks turned a brighter crimson as she stuttered.

“Oh my, I’m sorry, I wasn’t meaning to…I was just, well… I should probably go.”

{alt}

“Take care Lime.”

{alt}

I felt like a total idiot as I waved and watched my good friend ascend the steps. Good job dude. She probably will be to embarrassed to ever talk to you again. Way to mess up another friendship.

I made sure she was safely inside, and then I made my way back to the Lemon-Mint to get the car. The whole drive home, I kept replaying it all in my mind, and every time I pulled away, I felt more and more guilty.

{alt}

It bothered me so much, that I was still dwelling on it when I got home. I was completely zoned on the couch, when I Finally I decided I needed to do something about it. I grabbed my phone and sent a text to Lime.

Brothers B-day party is tomorrow. Wanna go?

Not even a minute later I got a reply.

“I can’t wait!”

{alt}

The next afternoon, the entire family migrated to the Slice Community pool for the party. The smell of hot-dogs floated on the air. Dad was designated BBQ man, and by the time they were ready, I was totally jones’n for a dog.

{alt}

Before long we were singing happy birthday and doing the whole spiel for Mika. He looked super excited when he blew out his candles. Remembering back I was pretty excited on my big day too!

“Wooooo Go Mika!!”

{alt}

Looking good dude!
{alt}

Next up was Koda, we have no idea what he wished for, but I know what we were all wishing for.

{alt}

Ya…well our wish didn’t come true, so hopefully his did…

{alt}

Auntie Persimmon even made it to the party, and looked like she was about to pop. Instantly she and mom were busy being moms and gushing over babies. Totally not my thing, I knew I wanted, and that was cake!

{alt}

While we were enjoying our cake, I couldn’t help but watch the adorable way Lime was nibbling on her spoon. She looked like a little bird. It was in that moment, that I realized how much I cared for her and appreciated her for all that she had done for me. I know I had thought about it before, but now I was actually feeling it.

{alt}
{alt}

Before I had a chance to talk to her though, she pulled me into the pool. We splashed and swam for a while, but with each passing moment, watching her smile playfully in the water, was only fueling my sense of urgency. Finally I couldn’t wait a moment longer. I took her hand and lead her to the edge of the pool and then hopped out.

“Where we going?”

“I wanted to talk to you a sec.”

“OK.”

{alt}

We walked slightly away from the party, and then I began.

“I wanted to apologize for yesterday.”

“For what?”

“The way I was acting. I was being stupid. I know you didn’t mean anything by it, and I still pulled away. You have been nothing but kind to me and I acted like a total berry-hole.”

“Oh Pineapple, don’t worry about it. Its fine.”

“No its not. I really like you and I’m really sorry.”

{alt}

“You like me?”

“Ya, I do. Very much…Lime can I ask you something?”

“You can ask me anything.”

“My brother says its time I start moving on… and maybe he is right… well, I was wondering if I could take you to dinner sometime?”

{alt}

She stepped a little closer and placed her hand on my shoulder, this time I didn’t pull away.

“I would love to go to dinner with you. Papple…”

“Ya?”

“We don’t have to rush into any of this, we can take things as slow as you need to. OK?”

{alt}

I wasn’t exactly sure where our relationship would lead, but I knew I cared enough about her to give it a shot. When Sunday morning came, I asked her to stay a little longer. Her mother agreed to it and left early Sunday morning, I drove Lime home late Sunday night. All in all, it ended up being a really nice weekend. Maybe there was life after Honey.

  1. Papple is such a cute nickname, I love it!

    Well, it looks like things may be turning around for him after all. It’s great to see Orange again, too. I was wondering what she’s been up to.

    Lime is so very pretty. I can’t help but wonder… hmmm…. πŸ˜‰

  2. Usually I love the chapters, but this one has made me a little frustrated. PINEAPPLE AND HONEY ARE MEANT TO BE!!!! YOU CAN’T JUST LET IT GO!!!!! NoOoOoOoOo! Stupid Lime sneaking in there and stealing Pineapple away!!! And it makes me more irritated that she’s green, and I KNOW the next colour in the order is green!!!
    DON’T GIVE UP PINEAPPLE!! FIGHT FOR HONEY, DON’T JUST FIND THE FIRST GREEN CHICK ON TEH STREET!!!!!!!!!
    Don’t get me wrong, I love this story, I just love Honey so much I don’t want Pineapple to move on. Pineapple + Honey = Perfect

  3. aww you can tell that that pineapple is digging the green chicks lol silly pineapple! he is so lucky! like really!
    but honey poor honey just thinking about her now is sad, but hey im sure well be seeing her in the future! cant wait for that day!
    like always this was another amazing chapter, berry! and i LOVE the pics! ❀

  4. Oooh Lime is very pretty ad I like the moving towards her direction. Sure Honey is sweet but I think the Lime angle is also nicely realistic……we can’t always have the first thing we see πŸ˜‰

    Bit sometimes life works out for the better that way.

  5. Im so conflicted right now! I love Honey so much and I really dont want to let go of the hope that things will work for them. But at the same time Lime is very pretty and seems to be very sweet, Her and Papple (Cute nickname) could be a good match.

    Loved seeing Orange, She was always my fav.

  6. say.. can I just pop in to say I was responsible for the cutest nickname ever?
    “@HawtPixelz patience, Papple, she’ll be back in no time.. trust me, I know so! why, you ask? I’m the almighty cat goddess, silly!”
    OH, YEAH! ❀

    *giggles*

    in other news, love the update, Burrzy!!
    I can't help but have heart for Lime too, she seems like a good girl..

  7. Awww, that’s so sweet. I can’t wait to see if Lime and Pineapple will end up together. Lime is really sweet and pretty. I’m sure she will make a great addition to the Chiffons. πŸ˜‰

    I like this chapter very much, and Mika is really hot. Another Sunset! ❀
    LOL @ Koda and his silly mask. πŸ˜€

    Thanks for all your work, Berry, it's really amazing. The videos, the sims, the stories…everything! πŸ™‚

  8. OKay so Yeah, last Chp was my first post, kinda like a ‘Hey you got another addict here”.
    This second time poster is all about the Excelence that is BERRY!!!

    Thank you Thank you for the Cameo of ORANGE! I love her and Candi is there, didn’t you see her, she was sitting right next to Orange playing peek-a- boo with Symph! They where having so much fun together!

    On to the twist that is Lime, we all know that Honey tastes better then Lime, but think of the sweet tartness that is all LIME! So realistic, sometimes first love just doesnt work out and who can say no to that perty pout! Go LIME but if she doesnt work out for Papple (*Snickers*) perhaps she will be the lip puckering sweet that brings Midnig… I mean Sunglow back into the fold. Although I personally Love me MidnightRaz!

    Enough Gushing Q?’s:
    1. I have tried to add CC into my Sims3 4 tims now, I am using the directions from MTS, but i just cant get it to work, do you know any other sites, or can you link me somewhere maybe I am using the wrong info.
    2.Your Website, I have been tring to join but I cant seem to register it doesnt go thru.

    Sorry for all the q?’s.

    • 1. You have to make sure that the CC is only .package files that go into your Mods/Packages file, and what goes into Mods is only mods. The rest of CC, mostly, would go into your downloads folder. Here’s a hint: If the file is in .package form, it goes under The Sims 3/ Mods/ Packages. If it has an icon with the blue background and green plumbob on it, it’ll go under The Sims 3/ Downloads. The rest of the stuff (which doesn’t leave a lot) goes into the Packages folder. πŸ˜€

      • Thank you for your help F.Llama and I have been reading all over there forum, I even tried to post twice now and it wont let me saying i have to read and agree to the rules, which I do and click I have read and accepted and then it says it may take 2 mins to kick thru… but now im on my 48 hour.

        I think I have figured out my problem on my own tho:
        my Resource.cfg file isnt saving as such it is saving as “Resource.cfg.txt” and no matter what I do it wont let me change it to a cfg file. Can someone show me how to do it or give me one to download that will save as the right extension, via email or something. THANK YOU!!!

  9. Aww, the shot of Orange and Symphony? Too cute.

    Mika came out a sexy beast, and Koda is just snuggledorable =D

    (Shirtless Butterscotch makes me smile at six in the morning while getting ready for the first day of school. I will be carrying that image with me as I drag through all my sucky classes today.)

    I hope that being with Lime for a while just makes Pineapple realize that Honey really is his one true love, because I want them together SO BAD.

  10. I like Lime, i really do. And if you had not introduced us to Honey i would be yelling for Limea and Pineapple to get married and have babies. But i still want Honey and Pinapple together. They are just meant to be and i know they cant be but they HAVE to!!!!

    Lime is cute though x

  11. I still can’t let go of Honey and Pineapple. 😦 Lime is adorable and sweet, don’t get me wrong, but I want Honey baccckkkk. Pineapple, you must realize this!
    Cute chapter though. At least Lime is helping ‘Papple’ get over his depression of sorts, but now that he is over it, Honey can come back now. *big cheesey smile*

  12. Will we ever see Koda’s face? Or is he too attractive for us lol. NO! I like Honey better! Haha, I see you used a berry I said in the comments page in the last two stories. I saw the snipit of Over Again. It looks awesome!

  13. Oh wow… I did not see that one coming. This is GREAT drama!! πŸ˜€ I am guessing Pineapple and Lime will be together for a while, and he completely stops thinking about Honey – and then one day he suddenly meets her again and doesn’t know who to choose!

    But it’s only a guess…

    The boys grew up very handsome by the way. And it was nice seeing Orange again. πŸ™‚

  14. WOW! Didn’t see that one coming. Cute but Honey and Pinapple were cute together. But So are Lemon-Lime and Pinapple.

    This i s such a touching part!!!!

    ❀ luv it!!!!

  15. NOOO! HONEY COME BACK! 😦 Don’t get me wrong I LOVE Lime, and I feel bad for her, but Papple (hehe) and Lime just don’t have what Papple and Honey did! Please oh PLEASE bring Honey back! And btw. What skins do you use for Glaze and Papple and others, because the Fawkes skin tones I downloaded don’t look like that? Especially when they aren’t wearing shirts?
    Well either way, great update! I LOVE Orange and I’m glad to see her back with her family and hangin’ with Candi!

  16. LOVE the update berry. ” oh pineapple pineapple were for art thow pineapple deny thy fater and refuse thy name” ooohhhh just got to love shakespeare *sigh* i hope that honey and papple hehe can get back together. hey berry i just love the orange idea *giggles* πŸ˜‰ . cant wait for the next update!!!!!!!!

  17. I love Lime; she’s quite the cutie, but Honey and the Bitters family have a special place in the story, so I’m still going to root for Honey. πŸ˜‰ She needs to wake up and realize that what her family wants her to do isn’t what’s best for her. Lime just doesn’t have the charm that Honey has, in my opinion. They aren’t quite as cute together as Honey and Pineapple are. >_<

  18. Erg…Conflicting feelings! I like Lime cause she is so innocent and nice and exciting. But I like Honey too, Shes mysterious and friendly and seems to be pineapples soul mate…But i can also see him having a child with lime O_O I can’t wait till the next chapter!

  19. Woah woah woah WOAH! My mouth like litterally fell down while reading this chapter! Not that I don’t like Lime (I read friendlyllama’s story/legacy thingy too) but I have to say I was surprised! I was not thinking that Pineapple would ever get over Honey!!! Hmm…. I can honestly say that I have NO clue as to what will happen πŸ˜› that just makes it even better!!! I hate when you know EXACTLY what is going to happen πŸ˜‰ Well AMAZING chapter! πŸ˜€

  20. NONONONONONO!!! I like Honey! No moving on Papple (which is adorable by the way)! You must wait for her! It WILL happen!… it has to…

  21. Okay so I have been following since the first and haven’t ever commented, but I felt the need to say WHAT IS HE THINKING? Honey is the one, he must be rebounding, simply must be. I hope he comes to his senses soon. Other than that, I love this story. You are very very talented.

  22. I love lime she’s absolutely adorable really!! But I think that I would like to see “papple” ^_^ *teehee* with honey.. I mean… I thinks It’s time we break the Bitters cycle and show them they can be loved too!!!!

    • we know Honey can love, cause she was sure bent out of shape when she had to let him go, but yeah the bitters cycle needs to break, and unless that family color scheme is about to go through a major change, here’s the only place. ( but now isn’t that interesting if in two gens or so the current heir is going through something similar. I’ll have to make note of that for mine.)

  23. MIKA IS AMAZING πŸ˜€
    I wish Koda would take his mask off too, lol. That’s probably why he didn’t come very close to winning heir, because nobody knew what he looked like…
    But considering what all of his brothers look like, and his sister, I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that he’s probably hot, lol.

    ANYWAYS~ I loved the chapter as always, but HONEY AND PAPPLE = <33
    (:

  24. I LOVE Honey!!!
    Papple cannot move on!
    Lime is a nice break but she cannot replace his soulmate!
    I loved seeing Orange…she has a special place in my heart!

  25. Aww I’m gonna miss Honey, but Lime seems awesome.

    Question: These photos, do you do any Photoshopping or do you take them like they are in the game?

  26. love your legacy berry! as well as your other sims works. i am not a stalker. *shiftyeyes*
    and i have to agree that honey and pinapple are perfect together, even tho lime is pretty. and mika and koda grew up so handsome!

  27. OMB! Such a surprising chapter. I never thought that Papple (lurve the nickname! <33) would ever get over Honey! Although I love Honey, Lime is just so cute and lively, and I think that I like that a little more. Don't get me wrong, I love Honey but Lime's awesome too.
    So, yeah. I'm cheering for Lime.
    πŸ˜€

  28. Very good chapter, I know where all the boys get their good looks. Dad’s not bad looking for an old guy OOOlala those abs! Lime is adorable, but what about that Honey girl? She just might miss out on her sole mate if she’s not careful. And poor Lime, if Honey wakes up before it’s to late, she will be out in the cold. Poor little thing…

  29. I just finished the whole story, well the chapters available. It’s great and I can’t wait to continue reading.
    I love everything that is going on with each character :]
    I also love Pineapple’s nickname.. Except I read it as P-Apple… lol.
    I had a business class where we had to come up with a company name for a Pineapple farm and the class chose P-Apple.

  30. Great chapter! I can’t wait to see what happens next!

    I think I’m going to have to side with Team Honey.

    Lime is sweet and all, but I still am waiting for Honey to return back to the story!!
    Don’t get me wrong, Lime and Pineapple are cute, but Pineapple and Honey already have taken a special place in my heart!
    It would be nice if the Chiffon and Bitters family stopped their rivalry through Pineapple and Honey’s union. Their story is kind of like Romeo and Juliet πŸ™‚

    Update soon!

  31. Awww I like Honey, but now I kinda like Lime too!!!

    And also, I have a question: How do you get Symph to sit in peoples’ laps?? I’ve seen it twice now!!

  32. OH MY BERRY πŸ™‚ I was soo super late, i had to finish Saff’s generation then Pineapple but ive enjoyed every waking minute!! Just to get this out there, KODA IS MY NEW ABSOLUTTTE FAVORITE!!! (Even before Pummy, but only by like 1%) Tehe this is so exciting oh my golly-kins πŸ™‚
    Great job gotta get caught up before glee starts
    Love You lots
    Claire

  33. Oh and also, the whole meeting Lime thru the internet is so similar to something recent with me, i was SHOCKED when i read that part and i was like… Awe v.v it reminds me so much of how things used to be πŸ™‚ (long story short: gained a best friend, lost him after 3 weeks)

  34. Aww looks like papple (adorkable nickname) is over Honey, well “trying” to get over Honey; having a rebound relationship maybe isn’t the best idea, I have a feeling that Lime is going to be the one that ends up hurting. But yay for another chapter of berry goodness – I’m not looking forward to catching up, as right now I can read chapters one after the other, when I catch up I’ll have to wait, lol. It’s like that on Cupcakes blog with the meringues, I got all caught up and now I regret it cause she’s gone MIA whilst moving to Japan. Berry have a word with the cup that is cake. Lol.

  35. HONEY AND PINEAPPLE FOREVER!!

    I’m sorry Lime, you are berry berry sweet but I was convinced from that day that Honey and Pineapple had that picnic in the park on that they would be together forever and they will be! It’s nice to see Orange, she always was one of my favorites….

    *Tear* My little Mika is growing up!!! He is so perfect, and handsome too.

    And Symphony is just adorable, I love her to bits!
