It was night time, the neighborhood silent as sims settled down for the night. Melanie was still at work with just under an hour left in her shift and Stelle was just settling down under the covers with the book she had been trying to finish for nearly a month now. Just as she opened to her bookmark, she heard a very subtle creak coming from the hallway. If her bedroom wasn’t right beside the front door, she may not have even heard it, but she most certainly did. Her eyes darted to the clock. It wasn’t yet time for her daughter to return home. Had something happened?
Book still in hand, she threw the covers off of her and rushed out into the hall only to gasp at the sight. It most definitely was NOT her daughter – it was a strange man she had never before seen! He was creeping into the house like a villain in some action movie and when he realized she was standing in the doorway, his eyes resembled saucers. Stelle’s surprise quickly turned to anger as she put her hand on her hip, waving her book angrily at the man.
With the threat of being unable to work with the new addition to her family, Melanie decided to bite the bullet and called for reinforcements in the form of her mother. Now, these two ladies didn’t always see eye to eye! Stelle, her mother, was more of an old-fashioned kind of gal, set in her ways and far too old to try and change now. Melanie, on the other hand, was far more relaxed when it came to how things used to be versus how things are these days – for example, having children out of wedlock. Stelle could never imagine such a thing, but it wasn’t so uncommon in Melanie’s circle.
The first couple of days were amazing. Melanie would go to work focused and then come home to Greg where he took her full attention, though most of their time was spent in the bedroom rather than sitting and talking. But as time slowly began to tick by, their passion began to transform into something darker. They began snapping at each other over the smallest of things, always arguing about this or that.
Our tale begins one afternoon in Spring, at a small little coffee shop. Melanie wanted nothing more than to be at work, but she was maxed out on overtime and unable to trade in her day off. Instead, she decided to partake in her second favorite past time – coffee. As usual, the coffee shop was steadily filling with people as the sun rose higher into the sky. None of them caught her eye, all familiar faces that she’s seen a million times before. But today was a bit different – there was one man she had never seen before in town, a man covered in tattoos and piercings.
All stories have humble beginnings and this one is no different. This tale begins with one Kris Sears, the main protagonist of this tale, as the name implies. But before we begin unraveling her tale, let us begin by exploring how she came to be in this world. Who could have guessed the twists and turns that her life would ultimately take? First, allow me to introduce our main players for this part of the story, for Kris did not just poof into existence!
