Chapter 2: Sonya meets the Farmers

“This is so much to take in”, sighed Arthur Farmer, putting his face in his hands.

“Tell me about it”, mumbled Martha. She had barely spoken since Krystal had brought Sonya into the living room. How could this be? She looked around the bedroom she had shared with her twin (or so she had thought) from the day her mother brought her home from the hospital. Of course, Krystal had never been her mother. Martha knew that now. All the memories, every part of her was – just wrong. She was never meant to be here. This family was not hers.

“Martha – ” began Sonya, nervously.

“I’m going to dinner with Tim”, I’ll be back later”. Martha walked out of the room stiffly without turning back.

“She’ll be okay eventually”, spoke Arthur gently, when Sonya looked upset. He put his arm around her shoulder, comfortingly. “It’s been a shock for all of us.”

As soon as Martha saw Tim, her long time boyfriend, she dove into his arms, buried her face in his neck.

“Krystal called me earlier to explain about Sonya”, he whispered into her ear. His hands stroked her silky brown hair comfortingly. Martha nodded, unable to speak. She was glad her mother had done so; she didn’t want to have to explain things to Tim.

“You know your mother loves you unconditionally. There is no need to worry about that changing”, he soothed her. “We’ll be gone soon, you and I”.

Martha finally looked up and smiled at him softly. “Our own house, finally!” She leant forwards and kissed him. She pulled back and gazed into his pale green eyes, a soft smile spreading across her face.

Tim grinned cheekily, “yep, just you and me, Martha. The agent called me today. We’re to pick up the keys tomorrow evening and the place will be ours!”. He placed his arm around her waist and Martha and Tim walked off into the dancing crimson sunset together.

‘That’s what I love about him’, thought Martha to herself as they walked. ‘He wants to talk about Sonya but he knows it can wait. We have all night to sort this out’. She squeezed Tim’s hand and prayed that nothing would ever tear them apart.

    This is hilarious, what an original idea for a DIGC project. I like how after a while you start to get emotionally connected to a Sims character of all things. I remember reading someones project last semester where they played Pokemon but used the Nuzlocke challenge where you can only capture the first Pokemon you encounter in each new area and If a Pokemon faints it is considered dead and must be released. What they discovered was that playing in this method created a strong emotional attachment to the Pokemon and they were devastated every time they ‘died’. Perhaps a study into the evocation of real feelings from game characters could be a good further point to study for your project. Here an article I like on this..
