It’s time for a brand new family!

Zosia, left, and Mieszko, right, fled their previous home after a plague swept through the city, killing their mother.

Their father Sylvester, unfortunately, had also contracted the plague, and lived just long enough to see his children safe in their new home.

(I did count the Kozlow father as a CAS sim, because I didn’t want to mess with having a grave that didn’t count for Paranormal.)

The children did have a guardian, though, since Mieszko’s friend Pavel had given him Lissa, one of the family’s grown puppies.

They moved into one of the little starter homes. It was nice because it came already furnished, except for the spare bedroom. I think the Louies lived here last.

The only real changes they needed to make were to redecorate and furnish the back bedroom for Zosia, and add the items Lissa needed.

Zosia went straight to school, but Mieszko sat down at the computer first to get Lissa a job in Pet Service. They had a nice little nest egg left after buying the house, but he wanted to make sure they had a source of income so they didn’t have to worry about burning through all their money. And he couldn’t get a job himself, since he had to be home for Zosia after school.

(Mieszko is a Knowledge/Grilled Cheese sim who wants to be a Mad Scientist.)

Also in the interests of ensuring an income stream, he spent most of the extra cash on a huge array of solar panels. That way they wouldn’t have to worry about paying bills, and would in fact get a nice credit twice a week.

The welcome wagon was waiting when Mieszko came home from school, but he was more interested in meeting fellow teen Josiah Gavigan.

When Zosia got home, she preferred to spend the afternoon chatting on the phone with her school friends.

Mieszko wasn’t hungry after an outing with Josiah, but he did whip up some grilled cheese for Zosia’s dinner.

Then he cheered her up with a fun game of Red Hands before bed.

Josiah brought a lovely gift. Mieszko naturally sold it and deposited the proceeds in his college fund.

Zosia’s glasses were glitching, so she took them off.

Mieszko helped her with her homework, and they finished just in time to catch the school bus.

Zosia brought Sharla Ottomas home for school, and the two girls spent the afternoon making friends.

Mieszko spent the afternoon with Lissa, first giving her a bath…

And then working on teaching her to shake for a promotion.

After Sharla went home, Zosia spent the rest of the evening painting. She refused to take off her cute ladybug raincoat.

snapshot_fee700fe_40d7c466

In the morning, she had to scold Lissa for growling at her. And all Zosia wanted was to be friends!

snapshot_fee700fe_40d7c4d4

Mieszko managed to bend Zosia’s ear about the wonders of grilled cheese for some aspiration points right before school.

Lissa’s brother Max comes by to visit frequently. As in, several times a day.

snapshot_fee700fe_00d7c578

Mieszko brought Saveliy Pavlov home from school.

snapshot_fee700fe_80d7c5db

“Hey, you know that lady Aglaya who lives around the corner?”

“Yeah, I know her! She’s my aunt!”

snapshot_fee700fe_00d7c5e0

“Well, you know who died? Her mom! Isn’t that hilarious?”

And yes, Saveliy did indeed find it hilarious. Several times, in fact.

snapshot_fee700fe_c0d7c65b

And then Mieszko swooned over him. Saveliy, who is entirely straight, has more guys swooning at him than any other teen in Willow Valley.

He’s got a hot girlfriend, though, so he doesn’t care.

Zosia didn’t know why Jenna Cooke was out walking way after curfew, but she wasn’t about to miss the opportunity to add her to her contact list.

snapshot_fee700fe_20d7c714

Zosia and Mieszko never seemed to be on the same meal schedule, but there was always plenty of leftover grilled cheese in the fridge whenever Zosia was hungry.

snapshot_fee700fe_40d7c766

“Yeah, Ezechias, that’s great…I have to go now, my brother’s calling.”

That night, Zosia learned that Ezechias Gavigan is a phone stalker.

snapshot_fee700fe_c0d7c7ea

Saveliy came though with a gift, despite the inappropriate swooning and gossiping.

snapshot_fee700fe_40d7c828

Mieszko used the money to get his own bank account up to $10,000 and get Zosia’s college fund started.

snapshot_fee700fe_a0d7c9fe

The next day after school, Mieszko finished teaching Lissa to shake.

snapshot_fee700fe_20d7cae2

Then Zosia spent the rest of the afternoon playing fetch with her in the backyard.

snapshot_fee700fe_40d7cc2f

That night, the ghost of Sylvester Kozlow made his first appearance.

snapshot_fee700fe_a0d7cc7d

Mieszko had been wanting to see a ghost all week, so this made him very happy.

snapshot_fee700fe_a0d7ccdb

He wasn’t so happy when his father woke him up from a sound sleep to scare him again, though.

snapshot_fee700fe_e0d7cd3c

Zosia wasn’t happy, either, when the ghost woke her up at 4 in the morning.

Probably just due to his first night haunting, right?

snapshot_fee700fe_00d7cf06

Mieszko got an A plus at school on Friday, and finally had enough aspiration points to get a long-desired thinking cap.

snapshot_fee700fe_60d7cfbe

Then he started to make friends with a nice dog with very strange eyes. Unfortunately, the dog ran off after a while.

snapshot_fee700fe_20d7d01f

That night, Sylvester came back out, woke Zosia up, and scared her into wetting herself.

snapshot_fee700fe_e0d7d031

Then he came back for a second run.

snapshot_fee700fe_40d7d049

And a third.

Sylvester’s gravestone will be moving to the cemetery first thing next rotation.

snapshot_fee700fe_80d7d080

Lissa got a promotion!

snapshot_fee700fe_e0d7d0c5

Hopefully Zosia will have a better rest of the night now that she has a guard dog sleeping beside her.

That’s it for the Kozlows! Next up is the Ottomas family.
