A Song for you while you read Chapter 28 and my first slideshow for Borage and TheNay83 about Diamond’s feelings for Borage poor girl, lol.
I started to notice recently as I looked in the mirror that I was getting old, my skin was pale, I had frown lines and it appeared I had lost my healthy glow. I’d never really thought that I would care about age but lately it seemed to be all I thought about. I wanted to stay young and beautiful like Turquoise so if I was to meet Borage again one day he’d still find me attractive.
Ever find yourself, out of the blue, suddenly remembering people you may not have thought about in years? Lately I had been thinking about Borage a lot, we had spoken in e-mail back and forth after the girls were born and talked for some time though he’d seemed confused as to who I was. Was it possible he had forgotten about me? I imagine if he had I’d feel pretty crappy considering he’d been in my thoughts constantly since we’d met and gone our own way.
After I fussed about how old I looked for a couple of days Turquoise suggested since I was an Elixir Master that I should look into an Elixir that would make me young again. I had once used one way back in Sunset City on a close friend of mine and could likely make one for myself as well.
I considered her thoughts for some time and decided that is what I would do, I wanted to be ageless and besides I still had a long way to go with my Challenge even if my heart had not been in it since Borage and Sunset City. I headed out to the local Consigement Shop to try and make the Elixir that I needed to make myself Young Again.
After several hours of work I made it but decided to take it at home encase anything happened to go wrong, that was the thing with Elixir’s you could be a Master but because the recipes were so detailed it was easy to slip up, they needed your full focus. When I arrived home I headed to my small workshop and wasted little time taking the Elixir.
I could feel it working right away and was relieved that I had made it properly since it was a rather complicated process.
Beautiful and Young Again…
After I finished with the Elixir and made sure everything was good I felt as if a the weight of the world had been lifted off my shoulders but my mind still kept going back to Borage. Someone had once told me in order to get over one person you needed to find another an so I decided to do that.
I had recently finished helping to build a new Big Show Venue in Aurora Skies and had been asked to had out flyers to let people know. This new Venue had turned out really well, it had a stadium for performers with bars and a balcony so they could watch various events. It had a daycare for children, an area for adult learning and a indoor garden/ restaurant. So I gathered up the flyers and headed out to deliver them, Aurora Skies was a small town so it didn’t take me long. I finally came to one of the last homes on my list, apparently the people who lived here were new to town and so I knocked softly as I watched the last, rays of sun fade in the distance as the moon came out.
“Pretty isn’t it?” I heard a male voice say
I quickly snapped out of my thoughts as my eyes fell on the owner of the voice, my jaw dropped when I saw him, he was so handsome and had the deepest, bluest eyes I had ever seen. True he had nothing on Borage but still, he appeared to have been in the middle of making supper as I’d nod.
“Yes lovely, I’m Diamond Flare.”
He put down what he had been cooking and stepped outside with me closing the door behind himself as he took my hand firmly and shook it. My mind went into overdrive as my heart started thumping, I had felt this energy before, being Fey I was very in-tune to other, magical creatures he was a Genie.
“Chris Sanders, it is a pleasure to meet you.”
I explained why I was there and soon we found ourselves standing in the snow talking away as I asked him about himself.
I soon learned he was single, what his sign was, that he had a cat and lived with a friend of his and they were both Genie’s. He was rather nice to talk to and the attraction was obviously there, before we both new why or how we ended up in one another’s arms. I was such a sucker for Genie’s, what was it about them that had such a hold over me?
After some serious kissing he invited me in for some supper, I suspected there was more to it but I couldn’t seem to help myself as I followed him in. We did enjoy a meal together and some wine he was a pretty, decent cook for a man as I laughed at the thought. Borage had never cooked, he just conjured whatever he wanted to eat as I smiled at the thought Chris leaned in to kiss me once more. Trying my best I pushed Borage out of my mind and before I new it Chris and I were in the shower.
We spent a good part of the night in the shower and soon fell exhausted into his bed where we both passed out as the first rays of the sun rose in the morning sky. I woke sometime later feeling sick and finding a note on the pillow beside me and a single, red rose letting me know Chris had gone to work. Quickly I rose, dressed and left going home feeling rather ashamed of myself for sleeping with one man well thinking of another.
Arriving home I received three surprises, both Dat and Diopside had grown into lovely teens.
I was also met by another new being in the family who called himself a Sim Bot, I had never met a Sim Bot before and had no idea where he’d come from until he told me he’d been sent to help me yet refused to tell me by who and his name was Richie Flare.
It was a bit weird to have a Sim Bot clonking about, but he didn’t cause any trouble and spent most of his time inventing in the workshop though I had no idea what he was inventing and little time to worry about it as I soon learned I was pregnant once more.
One morning well in the Nursery a strange man walked in, I jumped from the rocking chair I had been sitting in rather startled, he walked past me like he was at ease and took a seat in the same rocking chair as I stared.
“Diamond it’s ok it’s me Richie I’ve been working on a fine, film type of materiel that I could cover myself in so I might look more human. I get tired of people staring at me and running from me in fear, what do you think?”
” I think it looks extremely realistic, good job.” Feeling a little out of sorts I left the Nursery and got the Mail and then decided to work off some stress with painting.
However before I’d gotten too far and night had fallen once more I felt the familiar pains of Labor and used to it now I took myself to the local Hospital. Sometime later I gave birth to a beautiful Fairy Son which I named Ekanite Flare.
When I arrived home once more I was surprised to find Turquoise not home and that my Vampire Twins Demantoid and Dioptase Flare had grown into children.

A couple days passed with the twins starting School yet no sign of Turquoise, I was starting to worry as Turquoise had never gone missing before. Finally after I thought of calling the police a very pregnant Turquoise walked in.
“Where have you been?” I screamed at her ” I was worried.”
Turquoise smiled a sort of dreamy smile and rubbed her belly ” I met a man, an amazing man with hair the color of the sun and eyes as blue as the deepest part of the sea.”
Turquoise giggled a bit” We talked then we talked some more, then we kissed and well you know the rest.”
” It was my first time and it was amazing, I loved helping you with your children D but I’ve been wanting a family and husband of my own.”
This was all news to me and the man Turquoise spoke of sounded a lot like Chris, should I tell her I wondered? No she was in love I could see it all over her face. I’d never thought much about what Turquoise might want, she was always there to pick me up when I was down and help me out of my depression after Borage and had never asked for anything. No she never needed to know, I wasn’t in love with Chris like her it had just happened well I pined for Borage.
” Oh wow, congratulations your going to be a mother.” As I hugged her I was truly happy for her 🙂
Soon after the chain of events my girls all grew up a bit more, my Plant Sims grew into Young Adults while my Vampire Twins grew into Teens and my new son grew into a Toddler.

Shortly after all the birthdays Turquoise went into Labor for the first time, I rushed her to the Hospital where my fears were confirmed Chris was the Father as he met Turquoise at the Hospital. He was surprised to see us together but after Turquoise was taken into the delivery room he and I had a long chat.
He told me he was in love with Turquoise and had not been aware we were sisters until tonight, it had just happened like a strike of lighting. I told him we were not just sisters but twins, how had he not seen that? Or maybe he had and had ignored it, regardless I told him I was happy for them and he better treat my sister right or I could do terrible things to him. He actually looked scared which nearly made me laugh, we also agreed there was no reason for Turquoise to know about us. I also did not tell him about our son, he didn’t need to know as it would simply complicate things more. Soon the Doctor came out to tell is all went well and Turquoise had been blessed with a beautiful, baby boy.
Turquoise came home with me for now so we could help one another with the boys and talk about her future plans, I sort of already new what her future plans were but we still needed to talk about it. Also shortly after my Plant Sims grew into Young Adults they moved out and little Epidote grew into a adorable toddler.
He and Ekanite bonded rather fast and played together as well as learned to walk and talk together but soon my darling Ekanite grew into a child. It was nice to be an Aunt for once as well as a mother and to have my sister and my children able to play together.
By this time we had expanded our home a lot with the money we’d earned from painting, Elixir making and other things.
Before long Turquoise came home one night all blushing and excited apparently Chris had purposed to her and she had said yes. I had not thought of Borage much lately with everything going on but I soon found myself thinking about him as Turquoise started on about wedding plans, I was forgotten now as I realized in truth nothing else mattered except What the Heart Wants!
