Baby, baby, baby!

Harry and Hermione have a double wedding at the Fredeschay Estate. Lydia was gorgeous in a lime satin dress and Parker wore his trademark shag. Several family friends and coworkers (as well as the ubiquitous Kay Bachmann) showed up to wish the couples well.

Eager to start their new families, both Lydia and Hermione soon find themselves pregnant.

Lydia gives birth first to a very lively red headed boy, which Harry promptly names Iago. Shortly thereafter, Hermione also gives birth to another little boy and names him Iggy after her favorite musician.

While staying at home during the pregnancy, Hermione had decided to give in and finally become a vampire. The want has been nagging her long enough and the time has come to get it done and over with (plus she really wants her own casket). So she talks to Captain CJ who is more than happy to oblige.

Beseiged by the same nagging want, Harry follows suit shortly thereafter, with a little help from his sister.

Unfortunately, neither Parker nor Lydia are happy with these changes, regardless of the fact that their better halves are still really good looking vampires. Parker seems to have taken it harder and decides to buy his own house for his growing family. And so the Knights move out of the Fredeschay Estate with little Iggy in tow.

Lydia may not be thrilled with the vampire situation, but she seems to like it just fine. Enough to find herself pregnant again with Harry's second child (Two down, four to go!). Iago grows into a toddler shortly before his brother Ike's birth and Lydia can't help but daydream about their weddings...

And so it goes...

Harry's so called weirdness led him to befriend the local vampire families, whose members dropped by frequently at night (of course) to enjoy some much needed R&R at the Fredeschay estate.

Captain CJ, always the horndog, was intrigued by a pretty, grey skinned contessa with blonde hair and red eyes and turned on the charm immediately. The way he saw it, it was not cheating if Gabriella was asleep and the object of his affections was of a different species altogether.

What he didn't take into consideration, though, was the fact that not only the Contessa was not attracted to his slick ways, she also had a penchant for biting... with long - term consequences.

So there she was, lounging around in her red swimsuit (to match her glowing red eyes), when the mummy, er, Captain CJ came by once again and tried to goose her. Tired of his unwanted advances, the Contessa proceeded to mesmerize him with her purple glow of doom.

Harry walked in on them right as the biting was taking place but he figured it was best not to interrupt. The need to become a vampire had been persistently nagging at him day after day and he thought he'd see how things went for the old man before he caved in and indulged his little want.

The sun came out shortly after that and the Contessa flew home, not before telling Harry where he could purchase some quality caskets for the old man to sleep in.

Ever the practical sim, Harry had one delivered immediately (money talks...) and then went on about his regular business.

He had not heard from Brenda since graduating from college. Everytime he called her, she seemed to be too busy with some paper or the other. Bored after having reached the top of his career, Harry wants to have some fun. Surely all that money can get him some, right (Fun, that is)? So he decides to call the local matchmaker and get ready for a night out on the town.

The results are less than stellar.

Harry quickly sends his date back home without even asking her name.

Things seem to be going a lot better for the innocent Hermione. A surgeon at Fredeschay General who has yet to be kissed, Hermione likes to try out new things (that does not include PJs), and wonders why there's a casket in the Captain's bedroom. She has noticed he's quite ashen lately but it's not like he's dead or anything... right? Hermione tries out the casket and soon enough, she too, has a persistent want to become a vampire. However, she decides to take her brother's advice and wait and see how things go for him.

In the meantime, she seems to be spending more and more time with the really cute Parker Knight. Sure he's not the most active sim out there... but he is cute... and the first one to kiss Hermione. Ever.

Hermione is totally and completely in love. It seems Parker is too, and soon enough they have a quiet engagement party, where they both wear the most fancy schmancy attire they own.

Parker has let his hair grow since they last saw each other in college and now sports a sexy goatee. He even wants to be a medical chief of staff, just like her!! Hermione can't believe how lucky she is and cannot wait to be Mrs. Parker Knight. But will Parker be able to live in the wierd Fredescahy household with that old man that just won't die?

On the other hand, Harry is thrilled that things are going so well for his sister and wishes they would turn around for him, too. With Brenda still MIA, he calls up his friend Lydia and asks her out for coffee.

Harry and Lydia met briefly at a frat party a few years ago and had remaind friends ever since. Lydia attended all girl's schools all her life and was a bit too "outgoing" for Harry's taste. But now Harry is just crazy about Lydia's Princess Leia hairdo and she seems to have calmed down now and he's really enjoying her company. She seems to like him as well, dropping by several times a week.

They slow danced to the music in their heads one afternoon...

And then they kissed!

Boy, was Harry going to have a LOT of explaining to do if Brenda ever showed up! But... wait a minute... Brenda's not here, is she? And so the inevitable happens...

It seems like Harry's destiny is about to change.
