2.28 – And We All Fall Down

When Marisa looked at Dorian, she couldn’t help but smile as he slept. There was a lot of things that were on Marisa’s mind at the moment, but Dorian seemed to take all the worries away and replace them with happiness.

She could definitely feel it in her bones, and she hadn’t told the children nor Nathan about it. Today was the day she was going to die, and she finally accepted it. Marisa was finally happy, and there was nothing keeping her attached to the planet any more. It was time for her to move onto her next life.

"You're such a cute baby, I hope you grow up to be brave and strong."

“You’re such a cute baby, I hope you grow up to be brave and strong.”

There was one final thing she did have to do though, she wanted to make sure Maven knew that time waited for no one, and if he was going to get married and have children, now was the time to do it. He was in a happy relationship with Savannah, but neither of them had progressed any further from that.

“Maven, you should propose to that girl! She will say yes, I am sure of it.” Marisa advised her son, but Maven shrugged and came up with an excuse not to.

"Mom, we're taking things slow. I'm sure when the time comes, we'll be ready."

“Mom, we’re taking things slow. I’m sure when the time comes, we’ll be ready.”

“You can never be ready for marriage, or ready for children. You’ll be waiting until you’re as old as I am for what you want!” Marisa replied to Maven, who sighed and looked down to his lap. Marisa put her hand on her son’s shoulder and smiled. “You should do it while you still can.”

“Mom, are you feeling okay?” Maven asked, concerned that his mother was acting out of character suddenly.

“I’m fine! It’s just that now my little Dorian has been born, I want you and Callum to get yourselves in gear and turn on your ignitions for some little ones for Dorian to play with!” Marisa answered, with a big smile on her face.

"Do you want me to talk to Savannah for you? I'm quite good with getting my opinion across!"

“Do you want me to talk to Savannah for you? I’m quite good with getting my opinion across!”

“Mom, you don’t have to do that at all! I’ll talk to her, I promise.” Maven said to his mother, and the pair of them sat there and looked into the fire. It was blazing brightly and the fire was growing larger, it seemed more alive than before.

Maven was laughing to himself as his mother told him that she was going to head out for a second to help June with her rocket. He closed his eyes and thought about what his mother would say when he tells her that they’re engaged (once he asked Savannah).

She'd be so happy and excited!

She’d be so happy and excited!

A cold breeze blew over the Devine Household when Marisa went out to help June with the rocket, it was a harsh breeze. Black smoke erupted from one side of the driveway as the Grim Reaper appeared from the smoke with his massive scythe and stood as he watched. A man stood by the house, coming home from work to his warm home and his warm family, he was almost at the top of his career as well. However, before he could step inside of the warmth, he was taken by the cold, and he slowly fell down to the ground. Nathan Devine was dying, alone and in the cold.

This however, was not Death’s only victim for the cold breeze also claimed a woman who was helping her daughter with a rocket ship. This may have not been her home planet, but it was a place where it never had felt more like home to her. She knew it was time for her to leave when she felt the purple waves emit from her body, and she knew that it was time for her to leave. Marisa Devine was also dying.

Maven saw the Grim Reaper through the window and ran out as fast as he could. He found his mother’s body on the floor which drove a variety of emotions through him. He knew it was her time to go, but he couldn’t let her leave until she knew that him and Savannah were engaged. Maven looked over to the Grim Reaper, and looked at him head on.

“GRIM REAPER. I require your attention.” Maven shouted over to him, which caused the Grim Reaper to come over to Maven slowly.

“What is it, Maven Devine? Do you have brownies to give me?” The Grim Reaper asked, and Maven got down onto his knees, and held his hands together in a plea.

"Please bring my mother back!"

“Please bring my mother back!”

“Will you make me brownies if I bring your mother back to life?” The Grim Reaper asked and Maven nodded his head.

“Yeah. I’ll even get my dad to make them, he’s a high level in the cooking skill.” Maven replied and Grim froze, he didn’t know whether to tell Maven or let him discover it by himself.

“No no, I’d rather you make them. Your plea has been granted.” Grim answered as he waved his hands in the air and a breeze of warmth overcame Marisa as she became filled with life once more.

Marisa smiled at Maven, and then looked at her phone. It was about the time that Nathan would be home, and Marisa felt like she should tell Nathan about the day she just had. Dying and then being brought back, it doesn’t happen to everyone!

"Where's your dad?"

“Where’s your dad?”

The news was devastating as June was the one to discover Nathan’s body. She couldn’t take it, from having one parent almost dying to discovering another parent’s cold body on the ground. Grim claimed Nathan’s soul after he declined June’s plea, and June sat on the cold pavement with Nathan’s ashes, crying and crying.

Marisa couldn’t take the heartbreak from losing her lover, she would’ve joined him at the same time in the next life, and she couldn’t bear it. And so, two hours after her resurrection, she died of old age once more and this time, no one was there to plea for her.

"Goodbye Marisa, once again."

“Goodbye Marisa, once again.”

If things could get any worse, the fire inside of the fireplace by the photo studio and the kitchen grew angry, and larger and burst into tiny little flames which allowed many objects in it’s near vicinity to catch fire. The fire grew and grew until it engulfed the general area.

However, June was also there to save most of the furniture.

12-12-15_6-43-16 AM

But, it finally hit June. All of the negativity, sadness and pressure from the events of today finally hit her, and she couldn’t take it. June broke down into tears, and when she saw her mother’s urn in Nathan and Marisa’s bedroom, it devastated her.



However, June knew that she couldn’t stand around and be upset over her parents’ deaths. Of course she was going to be sad, but things still needed to be done, life does go on. With her son being born, she didn’t want to give him an unhappy childhood because of the death of her parents. She’d let everyone have the next few days to grieve, but then she knew that things had to return to normal, because that’s what her parents would’ve wanted.

So, June held both urns and placed them down into the graveyard, and in turn she inscribed both tombstones.

Nathan Devine – A Great Husband, Father and Grandfather. He will forever be known for his gardening and cooking skills, they were truly legendary.

Marisa Devine – A Wife, Mother and Grandmother who was out of this world. Her novels and songs would make you feel emotions you never thought you would.

And there, Generation One finally came to an end.

R.I.P Nathan and Marisa Devine.

R.I.P Nathan and Marisa Devine.

    That would be a really terrible day, having both parents die and a fire. I liked the way that you took a step back from what was happening- it made for a new take on the end of life that we’ve seen so many times.

      Thank you and I don’t forgive the game for having Nathan die alone. He appeared on the lot and then died, it was heartbreaking. I noticed that Maven put on a few pounds, must be because of Veronica’s cooking & baking!

    It’s sweet when a husband and wife die on the same day–shows how close they are.

    And I’m glad they both got to meet their grandson!

    Do you use MC Command Center? If so, to you have it set so ghosts won’t get culled?

      I’m glad they got to meet Dorian as well, it makes me happy knowing that Nathan knew the legacy wouldn’t die. I do use MC Command Center and I think I have it set so ghosts won’t get culled. 🙂
