Cosmos, the Cat
Lovisa and Pontus both are very happy that Lovisa graduated from college (SCL in Political Science 1p!) and that she moved in at Runemo. Now she just needs some new clothes.
The boys didn’t succeed to find their desired jobs last round, so they are still trying. Oliver wants a job in Show Business (or is it Entertainment?), but cannot find either.
Pontus wants to become a City Planner and finds a job as an Architect. Good start!
On the 3rd of July ’97 it’s time for an engagement, and a huge wedding is planned
We show you only the tree of Pontus’ closest family, though. Lovisa’s we saw at the previous lot (and below)
Here they are – excluding all the cousins named Burlin, since we realized it would be way too many!
As it turns out, this is also too many and the game crashed pretty much immediately
So – a smaller party for just the closest family and friends is arranged
The ceremony is held by the pond in the backyard
On the 9th of August ’97, Pontus and Lovisa are married.
But suddenly Nathalie, Pontus niece runs off crying. I suspect her father Aron is fighting with someone again – he’s hopeless. Annika, Nathalie’s mother, comes after her to ask what’s wrong
The party continues with cake
And ends a success, even though everyboday hates Pontus' uncle Simon
Oliver can still not find an Entertainment job
Instead he entertains himself with the Leader of the Pack.
Next day is Sunday, and everybody is invited back to eat leftovers from the wedding. The Montell tree is above.
But once again one of the Wern kids run off crying. Aron comforts Kent. I have never seen this interaction before! It’s too cute, even though I still suspect that Aron is the cause of all the drama. He hates his father-in-law David very much.
Oh noes! Barbro dies on Family Sunday!
She dies in Platinum, surrounded by her family, on the 28th of August ’98. 1p.
Pontus comes home promoted to Architect. Then it’s time for the funeral
A ceremony by the grave
Comforting words for the living
And a reception with cake.
David doesn’t feel well after the ceremony and eats his piece of cake alone in the kitchen.
While the guests are still on the lot, the grim Reaper comes for David too.
It’s really too much for Lovisa
She gets cramps and the labour starts too early
The 18th of September ’99 becomes a sad day indeed, while both David and the unborn baby dies
The poor children at Sörbo lost three of their grandparents and a cousin during the same round!
Another funeral is held, but this time there is no one who has the energy to have a reception.
Instead, they all wish to start anew, with a puppy
And Blackie, the labrador pup is adopted
Lovisa and Pontus welcomes her
Oliver continues his futile job hunt
And Pontus continues his climb up the architectural ladder and becomes an Architectural partner
Next time, we hope for more joy at Runemo.
Runemo after round 26:

Cosmos, the cat
