I play this rotation with a broken heart. I started regretting the epidemic almost immediately. When I realized there was no going back I became extremely depressed. Playing these families is like hearing nails down chalkboard, but I refuse to give up on the families that I've put so much of myself into. I don't have the heart to re-do all of the family trees so please forgive me for not including them in this chapter. Another reason is because different household's stories mesh together and it's hard to separate them.
Rest in Peace:
Mercedes (Jones) Goth
Marissa (Goth) Fogel
Nicole (Landgraab) Goth
Catalina (Greco) Lothario
Milla (Long) Zest
Amaya (Purdue) Nunn
Lyla (Rox) Purdue
Dina (Caliente) DaSilva
Jazmine (Caliente) Purdue
Makayla (Montinez) Rox
Olivia (Spencer-Kim-Lewis) Valdivia
The Goth family was one of the hardest hit by the epidemic. When her parents and brother got ill Alexander took in his niece Kendall. She's not the only orphan in the family though. Sierra lost her parents as well.
Kendall's birthday was a somber occasion. Her last trait is childish- like her mother. After she blows out the candles she thanks her family for taking her in but says she doesn't want the reminder of her parents and brother right now.
She tried moving back into her old house but couldn't. (The only thing I can think of is the Spring egg collection and bunny from last year.) She had the house bulldozed and a small house with room for a roommate built. She didn't really know Rosa Lothario but she isn't family and she lost her parents too so she invites her to share the home with her. Rosa is all too grateful to escape her overbearing older brothers and takes Kendall up on her offer.
Things are pretty depressing at first and they don't speak to each other much... too caught up in their own memories.
Kendall decides to join the Upper Crusts Club and goes to a meeting to meet some people that aren't family and to get her mind off of her loss.
