Goodbye Paradise Bay, a bustling town nestled between beautiful valleys & a sparkling bay. In order to encourage population growth, the City Council paid the mortgage down-payment and all moving expenses for four lucky applicants looking to start a new life.
Alas, this neighborhood has grown too large to keep up with, often having unbearable load times & out-of-the-blue crashes. So, even though I really wanted to make it until the first death of the 5th generation, and I would've loved to have gotten one more Round before closing up shop, but me thinks it's time to end this wonderful neighborhood.
It makes me sad though to leave a few unfinished storylines. Like, does Dawn have a little boy the spitting image of Jennings? Or will Paxton & Abbey wind up together, despite the odds? Or will Paxton's little sister Mackenzie ever get over Shawn stealing a kiss to get back at Paxton? Where does Lizzie go after Ray divorces her & kicks her out for being a brazen hussy?
I hope everyone enjoyed reading about the Paradise Bay families! I know I certainly had fun with them!
A SENIOR MOMENT:
Let's take a moment to congratulate our Seniors of Class '19 & found out what's in store for them once they move back to Paradise Bay!
ANALEIGH CARTER: - "I don't think there's any reason to rush into marriage. I mean, look what happened to my mom when she thought she was in love with Gary. He left her high and dry! I just want to make sure I find the right guy, first..."
ISABELLA TIPTON: - "Goodness it was rough following my dreams at Uni! There were a few times I almost died! But, I did it! I made a 3.0! Not too shabby considering I start to burn up in the sun!"
VANESSA REED: - "I don't really know what I'm going to do with my degree. Maybe I'll travel, meet some people."
JULIANNA HART: -"I know everyone around me was busy falling for each other, but I have a 10-year plan. First, I want to get a job in the science career & when I've reached the 5th level, then I can begin to think about getting married and having babies."
KAITLYNN REED: -"I'd been hoping I'd find my true love in school, but didn't seem to have any lucky. I guess I'm a little shy & buried my nose in my book too much. Hopefully a visit to the matchmaker can help!"
MITCHELL REED - "I remember how amazing Chantel was in high school & she's only gotten cooler in college! We're not really labeling things right now. Just want to see where life takes us!"
CECELIE CARTER -"Parker's an amazing guy! I love him so much! I can't wait for him to propose!"
NEIL CARTER - "I've kind of kept to myself this year. I noticed that some of the older guys get into fights alot, so I'd rather stay away from all that drama. Besides, I'm here to learn, not make friends & lovers!"
ALEJANDRO CARTER - "I guess I just haven't found the right person. I haven't really been looking either. I'd like to try to pull off a 4.0 this year!"
RUSTY CREELMAN - "Yeah, most people tend to overlook me. I know I don't stand out like my younger brothers Noah & Ethan. I've kind of hung out with Neil & Alejandro. We're all kinda waiting to see what next year brings!"
Jennings caught her as she leapt into his arms. "I love you, too, Dawn. I feel like I've waited my whole life for you!"
Dawn laughed, "God help us! She already has you wrapped around her little finger!"
Life was perfect.
Everything was taken from her....
Aidan couldn't believe the tragedy that had befallen his best friend. "I'm so sorry," he told. "There are no words."
Dawn tearfully nodded, understanding what he meant. As tears dripped down her face, she cried, "I'm pregnant!" She fervently prayed her child would be a boy... a sweet little boy, just like his Daddy....
