Caliente (Dina)-Round 6.3: Raid and recovery

/* NOTICE: This post continues directly on the previous post, I split them up because it was getting too long. I recommend reading previous post first. Also this is a flashback post, it explains the events mentioned in Escape, and happens much before all other posts in this round(except Locked up and  Escape) so don’t get confused. 🙂 */

In her dream the memories came back. She came to work like she did any other day. She brought two cups of coffee, one for herself and one for her partner and mentor Jesse Hoves. She was really starting to like her job. It was a big change from being a receptionist down in the basement, in the forensics department. She didn’t have as much time as she did before, she couldn’t draw at work anymore, she had to shadow and learn from the senior officer but she didn’t mind it one bit. She knew she would learn a lot from Jesse Hoves. He had been a police officer his whole life. He was old, older then her mother probably but even though his hair had gone gray he still had a charming smile and lively eyes.

Dear Sara,

We are still safe and sound at Champs Les Sims. The place is absolutely enchanting.  Both Justine and I fell in love with his history, the rustic houses, museums, and vibrant nature. I can’t wait to see you and tell you about all of our adventures here because if I were to write them I would need a hundred of these postcards. I hope you would visit here one day and see it all for yourself. Stay safe.

With love

Caliente(Dina)-Round 6.1: Until death do us part

Table of contents

(Characters page: People of Sunset Valley)

Dina stood on the balcony of her  beautiful home with a drink in hand. One could say she was enjoying the beautiful view it provided, view of the whole town, her town. But today Dina’s thoughts were elsewhere. She wasn’t seeing the streets, the park, the large glass dome next to the science facility. No. What she saw a beach lighted by a full moon. What she hard were the soft sounds the ocean made as the waves hit the soft sand. What she felt was the sand beneath her bare feet…

Screenshot_28Sara sat in Alyssa’s office her heart beating like crazy, her palms sweating as she moved them from griping the seat handles to rest on her knees. The electrifying excitement followed her from the dark basement in the office building downtown right back to the police station.

The note she found on the crates in the abandoned office, carefully bagged by all the procedures Alyssa and Mr. Hoves had shown her just hours ago was now in  Mr. Hoves’ hands and both he and Alyssa were busy examining it in silence that was unbearable for Sara’s nerves.

Caliente (Dina) – Round 5.3 – The Mission

Table of Contents 

(Previous post: Caliente (Dina) – Round 5.2 – Lunch with the boss)

Screenshot_7Knowing what she knew Sara was not the least bit surprised to see Justine Hooks, her mother’s girlfriend in the kitchen Wednesday morning, the day before her big mission for the SVPD.  She was also not the least bit surprised to learn Justine had spent the night or to hear her mother had gotten engaged for the second time.

She hugged them both and congratulated them with all her heart. Yet another engagement for the Caliente girls she thought… Her mother had gone trough it after all… Before accidentally spying on her mother’s search for engagement rings last week she wouldn’t have really imagined it possible. She believed Dina Caliente’s marrying days were behind her. For best of Sara’s knowledge her relationship with the much younger cook was just a silly fling to fill in time. She guessed she was wrong. Love works in mysterious ways after all…

Caliente(Dina) – TOC

This post contains a table of contents for the Caliente family with synopsis of each post if you don’t want to read them all (so spoilers obviously).

I try to make each round’s series of posts work as a stand alone short story so each should make sense on its own but if you want to catch up on what happened previously (or check if my writing had made any progress :P) you can follow the links to read them or if you want to refresh your memory or just want to get a fast update of what’s been going on read the synopsis in italic.

I will update this post after each new update for this family is published.



I created Dina and Nina for a reconstruction of my Sims2 Pleasantview, I have given up on that neighborhood but I liked Dina and Nina and decided to move them in this save, they were the fourth family to join the neighborhood.

 At one point the household consisted of Nina, her fiancee Dave, their daughter Rosie, Dina, her wife Nala and their adopted daughter Sara so I decided to split them up, and that is how this Caliente family got their new home.

At the beginning of this story Dina had just reached elder age, had retired from her job as the Leader of The Free World. She and Nala are divorced and both their daughters Sara and Summer are young adults.

Round 4

This post is told form Dina’s POV.In this post we meet the Caliente women, Dina and her two adopted daughters: Sara and Summer. We learn Dina had recently divorced her wife Nala after an affair. Dina had also recently retired following a successful political career, she was the Leader of The Free World and is very rich and famous, thus completing her lifetime ambition.  Now she is focused on her two daughters who don’t really get along. Her house gets broken into but her daughter Sara deals with the burglar still causing Dina a lot of stress and her younger daughter Summer gets engaged to her longtime boyfriend Bradley Frail.

This post is told from Sara’s POV. Summer had gotten pregnant with Bradley, shortly after her engagement, Dina had tried to push her into a marriage which she wasn’t ready for and she moved out to her other mother‘s house. Sara gets an offer from Alyssa Prentiss (her future mother in law) for a secret mission that would help the SPVD (where she works as a desk jockey for the forensics department) find evidence that would once again put their little town’s only convicted criminal Mortimer Goth behind bars. In return she would be promoted and become a full member of the police force.

Round 5.2 (Lunch with the boss)


This post is told from Sara’s POV. Sara has lunch with the Big Boss, Dynamic DNA specialist Junior Hoves, they talk a little about their personal life, but the conversation soon steers to the offer Sara received from Alyssa Prentiss and Sara informs him she decided to accept it.

Round 5.3 ( The Mission)


Sara finally goes on assignment given to her by Alyssa Prentiss, she doesn’t find the bad guys where the SVPD expected them too but instead finds a message that seems to be left there for the police, she takes it and rushes back to the station. Her mother, Dina gets engaged to her girlfriend Justine Hooks.

Round 5.4 ( Celebrations)


Sara brings back the found evidence to the station and gets promoted by Junior Hoves himself. The next day she stumbles in to her mother’s bachelorette party. The party is a blast for everyone but Sara who sees her aunt and tries to confront her guilt over her cousin’s suicide attempt. The party ends with Blair Hoves fainting and the ambulance’s arrival.
