After Ashlynn, Heath didn't think he would ever love again. But Bianca has stuck with him despite his commitment issues, still wants him even though middle age is creeping up on him.
He can't imagine being without her, so he does the one thing he'd never anticipated he would; he gets down on his knee and asks her to be his wife.
She accepts tearfully, holding him tight.
There's no point in waiting, they decide, and plan a simple for this coming Saturday, just enough time to get something simple together for their relatives.
Graduation is also coming fast for Elliot and Rochelle, and she begun to reveal her plans for their future together. He's is school's star athlete, and he's dating the most popular girl in their class, and there's no question in Elliot's mind that this is the way everything should be, he'll marry Shell and they'll raise children whose lives will be as perfect as theirs were.
After meeting with his mother, Farrell has begun researching MorcuCorp's history. They have their corporate statement of course, as bland and uninformative as any large company's. And they are the subject of much conjecture and conspiracy theories surrounding their secretive research, some of it so improbable that Farrell wonders how anyone can take it seriously. Mummy shock troops unleashed on a small farm town, fairies held prisoner in secret labs, clones of former President Harris Landgraab running MorcuCorp from behind the scenes, intent on world domination. He's tried hacking into MorcuCorp's computers himself to find the truth, but, genius though he is, they've protected themselves with encryption algorithms he cannot decode.
As for Pearl herself, Farrell can only delve so far into her career history as a genetics researcher until she, too, disappears into the black hole of MorcuCorp. She had said he'd been 'bred' for genius, which can only mean she intended to get pregnant when she met his father, that, indeed, she had targeted Heath as part of some breeding program. Of course, everything he knows about his father would contradict the idea that someone would choose him to conceive a genius baby with. But, Heath and Pearl had produced Farrell, so she must have known something.
Heath's family history is open to anyone who wants to search any ancestry website, a long line of farming folk going back centuries until they get lost to a time before birth and population records were kept for posterity. There is seemingly nothing special about the Brannons, so why did Pearl select Heath as breeding partner?
Farrell takes a break from his research to mess around on his work bench while his athlete brother keeps himself in shape.
Geniuses don't need goggles.
As their wedding day approaches, Heath has a few nagging doubts. Does he really want to get married? Really?
He's at the top of his career, still bringing in the young audience with his romantic lyrics and golden voice.
But he's not getting any younger, and he knows it. Making the marriage commitment is frightening, but not as frightening as the thought of losing Bianca. When Saturday comes, he's ready for his wedding.
Shasta is first to arrive for the party, and she has her own news. Brian recently graduated and they rekindled their romance. Rekindled to the point where she thinks she might be pregnant.
The coupe take their vows as the sun sets over the ocean.
By the time night falls, Heath is officially married.
Bianca thinks her sister Thelma could at least have put a dress on, even if she is pregnant. And those cowboy boots, what is she thinking?
While the boys say goodbye to their gusts, the newlyweds head up to their bedroom to celebrate, having decided to put off the honeymoon for a few days until after Elliot graduates.
Heath's new facial hair comes from a midlife crisis wish to get a beard. I like it. Hopefully Bianca likes it, lol.
Both Brian Lecocq and Marvin's husband Brad were invited to the wedding and actually showed up, but they both ran off as soon as they arrived. Sims, so annoying sometimes, lol.
Heath has achieved his Perfect Careers goal. And Elliot will be aging up the next day. Farrell ages up 5 days later. Soon, the gen 2 heir will be revealed.
My heir is already chosen and has been groomed for his roll, but boy, what a choice!
I admit I like Farrell little better. =D
