Chapter 5.11 – Breaking Apart

As Georgia pulled up to the address Nigel had given her over the phone her mind was busy turning tricks.  She felt sick inside. What was she about to uncover?  She pulled up to the curb and dragged herself out of the car.  Did she even want to know?  She spotted Nigel’s car parked slightly off to the right and headed over. Every step towards his car was a struggle – weights were attached to her ankles and every part of her body was shivering.

She spurred herself forward and joined Nigel in his car, sliding onto his passenger seat.

“Thank you for coming so late,” Nigel whispered not even looking at her.  “I did not want to bother you yet, not until I had conclusive evidence but I’ve been watching your husband for weeks now and this house on the right is as far as I can take my investigation.”

“What do you mean,” Georgia whispered back.  Her heart was thundering so loudly she did not understand why they were whispering, her heartbeat was giving them away.

“On the nights your husband claims to be working late, he is speaking the truth 50% of the time. I have a spy camera in his office and I can see him there working until he goes home to you.”

“And the other 50% of the time?”

Nigel blew out a breath.  “He comes here,” he replied indicating towards the house ahead. “The house is like fort knox, I cannot get in to see what is going on.  I cannot even get a spy camera onto your husband because of the metal detectors at his work would go off.  All I know is that the house belongs to a Mrs Wiseman.”

Georgia heart sank.  “Who is she,” she spat.

“That I don’t know either.  As far as I can find out she has been around for a while and used to work for the government until she retreated to this estate many years ago.  Her files are strictly confidential.”

“So why am I here?”

“Because if you want to find out for sure what your husband is up to in that house with Mrs Wiseman you will have to go in yourself. I can pick the lock and get you in and then the rest is up to you. I’m afraid my fee does not cover breaking and entering myself.”

“What if I paid you more,” Georgia asked terrified at the prospect of what she would see in the house.  She stared straight at it.  Could she really do this?

“Sorry Mrs Starr, I already have a criminal record, I don’t need another one. I’ve taken the case as far as I can; the rest is up to you.”

Georgia looked from the house, to Nigel and back to the house again.  Ignorance can be bliss, she thought to herself.  But then she swung the car door open and leapt out.  “Though on the other hand,” she said out loud.  “I would rather know.”

“You coming she said,” addressing Nigel while starting up towards the house.

She soon heard the pitter patter of Nigel’s feet behind her and suddenly they were at the front door.  “Now be silent,” he said reaching down and inserting a long thin metal rod into the lock on the door. After no more than fifteen seconds Georgia heard a click and the door swayed open. 

She stared into the dark corridor and walked in.  Her adrenalin was pumping and she was determined to see this through. No one cheated on Georgia Starr and got away with it. 

“Just remember,” Nigel hissed as she left his side.  “I was never here.”

Whatever, she thought proceeding through the house.  It was old and priceless antiques donned the walls. Who is this woman, she wondered to herself. 

She tiptoed around the house, looking in the kitchen, sitting room, dining room.  There were so many rooms Georgia almost got lost.  When she had cleared the ground floor, it was time for the second floor.  Gingerly she mounted the stair case.  It creaked slightly under her feet but she kept going.  There was no turning back. 

The first room was a bedroom – no one in there.  She proceeded down the long dark corridor checking room after room – nothing!  Where was he? 

And then she heard it.  It was faint but she knew it was there.  A man’s voice.  She followed the sound until it got louder.  That must be him, she thought.  She found herself running towards the door and when she flung it open she was out in the night’s air – on a balcony.  Surrounding her were a group of men – four – no five men all standing behind telescopes. All staring up at the night’s sky.  Including Luke!

“What is this,” Georgia gasped.  The chit chatter of the men ceased and they all spun around to look at her.  “What the hell is this,” she said gorping at Luke with her mouth open.

Luke looked from her to the other men and then back to his wife in disbelief.  “Its err… our fantasy star-watching draft,” he said sheepishly.

“We said no wives,” one of the men snapped looking at Luke.

Everyone’s eyes were now on her and Georgia could see the gleam of sweat collecting on Luke’s upper lip.

“Your fantasy what,” Georgia said ignoring the other man.

“It’s our draft for fantasy star watching…..” he said again, his voice trailing away.  He moved towards her and through the open door.  She followed him back through the house and out the front door. Nigel was long gone.

“What the hell is going on,” Georgia shrieked as soon as they got outside not caring who could hear her.

“I should have told you,” Luke said looking at his feet.  The light from the streetlamp was illuminating his face and Georgia could not even bear to look at him.

“What else have you been lying about?  Who’s Mrs Wiseman?”

“Nothing…I’ve not lied about anything else,” Luke puffed.  “Mrs Wiseman is Sargent Wiseman’s mother who runs the league.  He lives here with her. It’s just that I know you’ve been mad cause I’ve been working so much and I didn’t want to upset you by telling you I was coming here.”

“I wouldn’t be mad if you told you wanted to hang out with your space buddies.”  Georgia’s voice had changed from anger to pain.  She knew she was sulking but she knew she had every right to.

“It’s a fantasy star gazing draft. I’m not cheating or anything.”

“No, this is worse!”

“How is this worse?”

“This is you wanting to be with your friends more than your family.”

“Look, the reason I don’t tell you the truth is because if I told you what I was really doing, you would just get mad. So you think I’m working, I do my fantasy draft, and it’s win-win.”

Georgia sunk her head into her hands.  “Why don’t you want to do something with me?  Why can’t you include me and the kids?”

“Because I need to get away,” Luke said sighing even louder.  “With work and you and the kids, sometimes I just need some time to myself.”

“I need time for myself,” Georgia cried. “I want time for myself, too. You’re not the only one. You just think because you don’t yell that you’re not mean, but this is mean.”

“I’m not being mean. I’m being honest with you darling. You’re telling me I need to be honest.”

“No, you’re not. You’re lying.”  Georgia was now crying.  She never thought Luke could hurt her like this.

“I’m doing it because I need to keep my sanity a little bit.”  Luke tried to reach out to her but she pushed his hand away. 

“I don’t want you at the house tonight.  Stay over with your space buddies.” She turned on her heel and stormed back over to her car. 

Driving home she could hardly see from all the tears pouring into her eyes.  That night she slept alone, holding onto her pillow and pretending it was Luke.  Even though he had lied to her at least he had not been cheating, that was the only good thing to come out of this situation. She knew she would forgive him eventually but she would never forget.

Over the following months Georgia gradually let Luke back into her life.  At first he stayed at a friend’s place.  Then he moved back in and slept on the sofa.  Georgia would sometimes wake up in the night and forget that he wasn’t there. As she reached out to him it would all came flooding back. 

She would creep out the bedroom and watch him sleeping, wanting more than anything to welcome him back into his bed.  She wanted to reach out to touch him, smell him, but she fought against her yearnings and crept back beneath her covers alone.

During this time the kids were too busy with their own lives to give much thought to their parent’s marital affairs. India and Izzy were both on the verge of adulthood and their relationship had almost completely broken down.  It had all begun with India going out with Mason.  Watching them together pulled at Izzy’s guts and she found herself avoiding them whenever she could. The problem was wherever India went, Mason went too.  If India and Mason came to watch telly, Izzy would get up and leave.  If India and Mason came to a party, Izzy would move across the room to be as far away from them as possible. But the more serious they got, the harder they were to avoid.

“Don’t go,” India said one day as Izzy got up to leave the room after her and Mason had come to join her. 

“I have stuff to do,” Izzy replied.

“What stuff?”

“Just stuff alright,” Izzy snapped storming off up to the room she shared with her twin – although it had been days since India had slept there – she stayed at Mason’s most nights these days.

“What is eating you,” India screamed storming into the room as Izzy’s head had just flopped back on her pillow.

“Nothing,” Izzy said sighing.  “Just leave me alone will you.”

“No I won’t.  I’ve had enough of this Izzy.  What have I done that’s so bad that you can’t be in the same room as me?”


“Tell me,” India shrieked.  “Please Izzy. I can’t take it anymore.”

“Its not you,” Izzy screamed back leaping from the bed and facing off to her sister. “It’s Mason alright!”

India recoiled.  “Mason,” she whispered.  “What does this have to do with Mason?”

“It doesn’t matter,” Izzy said turning away. She did not want to let India see her cry.

“Izzy what is it,” India said her voice softening.  “What has Mason done to you?”

“It’s nothing really,” Izzy said. Now the tears were streaming and she could not stop them. 

“Oh my god,” India gasped.  “He did something didn’t he?  Did he touch you?”


“That’s it isn’t it.  He tried it on with you?  My own sister!”


Izzy was not sure why she stayed silent.  But she just did not know what to say. 

“I’m going to kill him,” India spat and ran from the room.

“No India….” But it was too late. She had already disappeared down the stairs and Izzy could hear the screaming from her room.  Her conscience was telling her to put things straight.  Put things right. But her ego kept her from doing it.  At least this way Mason will be out of our lives and I can stop suffering, Izzy thought while India threw a baffled Mason out of the house.

Meanwhile, while all this was going on, Joe, Kirk and Karis had all aged into teenagers and had their own obstacles to contend with. But that’s another chapter….

  3. Auryyy says:

    omg Joe!!! 😀
    I’m voting for him! haha
    He is sooo cute<3
    And yay. Luke is not cheating on Georgia. I think Georgia is over reacting a little bit too much.
    Hope things get better between Luke and Georgia. 🙂

    • rissanicole2 says:

      I agree, I think Georgia should try to get over it and forgive him . But I understand why she would be upset. It would hurt to know that he wanted to be with friends more than his family. And Georgia needs a break ,too. But I think her practically kicking him out is a bit.much.

  4. Manon says:

    Wow, great chapter ❤

    I love your writing ^-^

  5. ne0cats says:

    If I hadnt watched knocked up yesterday night I would have been kicking myself wondering where all that dialogue between Georgia and Luke ha come from 😛

  6. Dreamy Underwood says:

    I still love Joe. India jumps to conclusions, Izzy doesn’t have guts to say, I think Karis is very gardening/ housewife-y while Kirk is just Kirk.

  7. rissanicole2 says:

    I have a feeling that izzy lying about mason will come back to bite her. I loved this chapter . The thing that happened between Georgia and Luke is just like the movie knocked up lol.

  8. callierose says:

    Wow Izzy, why didn’t you go after your sister? That’s a bit selfish if you ask me.
    And phew, at least Luke isn’t cheating!! But still, what he said and did was hurtful, and I’m glad Georgia didn’t just sweep him up and take him back

  9. jaaziieee says:

    epic legacy. all 3 of them 😀 such a pleasure to read in class XD

  10. Yay! He’s not cheating! I can’t wait till the next chapter…. I want Joe or India to be heir x

  11. karalovessims says:

    Yay he’s not cheating!! 😀
    i wish izzy would have gone after her sister .. mason was cute. 😉
    but this is the starr legacy, where things never go right, no?

  12. Nightrain17 says:

    At least he’s not cheating …. I was not expecting that though!

    I can smell more drama with the kids. What happens if India finds out that Mason never did that. Or has he done that?

    On the other hand the other three children have grown up wonderfully.

  13. Bubii says:

    I want to read more!! 😀

  14. wolfmania98 says:

    I loved this chapter! I want to read more :(. Im so glad Luke isn’t cheating

  15. zimmya says:

    Woah, woah, woah! Luke (almost called him Luck lol) is in a stargazing fantasy group thing?! Georgia is right, this is worse than cheating! If I were her I would have packed his bags for him and threw ’em into the swimming pool! Okay, a little over the top, but wanting to spend time with friends more than family? And he said “With work and you and the kids, sometimes I just need some time to myself.”, he doesn’t even spend time with Georgia and the kids!!! Awsome chapter Starsarah, can’t wait for more!
    P.s. New chapter(s) of my legacy!

    • koolyaid says:

      I totally agree. She has a carrer and still fiinds time for her family and you don’t see her complaining about a break.

  16. Kawaii :3 says:

    LOL Kirk looks JUST like Howie

  17. I love this legacy!! 😀

  18. SarahToo says:

    Oh! Knocked up! That’s what movie that’s from! I read that part and recognized it but couldn’t remember where I had seen it before! I can’t wait to hear about the kids:)

  19. Amanda says:

    I’m so glad he wasn’t cheating, but its still sad that he doesn’t want to spend any time with her and the kids. Poor georgia. This wasn’t what i expected at all. lol. I was expecting him to cheat. I love it that you keep us guessing. The kids look great! I wont go based on lucks who gets my heir vote, I want to see there personalities develop in the next chapter!

  20. Malinahona says:

    I kind of get where Georgia is coming from, she’s been sad that Luke wasn’t spending time with her and the family, but understood because it was work and his dream. But if she finds out that if he wanted to he COULD actually spend time with them, yeah, I’d be angry too. But on a side note, I am voting for either Izzy or Karis, they are so pretty!

  21. I guess I am happy that Luke wasn’t cheating on Georgia. I never really liked him though. I personally think that Luke and Georgia have excellent genes. Except Kirk reminds me of a lion, and it looks like someone threw black paint on his head. hehe. I still like Joe the best. I cannot wait for the next chapter, Thursday, come already!!!

    • StarSarah says:

      Yeah the kids have a real mixture of their parents. Kirk looks like his dad but with pale skin and ginger hair. Joe looks like his mum but with his dads dark hair and dark skin. Not sure about Karis – think she is more Georgia!

  22. I hated that part of knocked up. I thought it was a dumb fight and still do lol

  23. Minty says:

    Aww Kirk reminds me of Carter.

    I think Joe is very handsome but I’ll probably end up voting for kirk.

  24. wolfmania98 says:

    am I the only one who LOVES Karis

  25. neecolaa says:

    Lol, Knocked Up
    & how does one exactly partake in Fantasy Star Gazing? XD I get that that’s what the movie was doing with baseball, but that actually exists! Aren’t stars already charted out?

  26. Tawny says:

    Joe is so cute. Karis also! Great chapter!

  27. writergrl98 says:

    JOE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh my gosh, I freakin’ LOVE Joe!

  28. AJpinkgirl says:

    Awesome chapter. India and Karis are my two favorite!

  29. Brennon says:

    Georgia is so overreacting. I think Izzy is lying about Mason. I’m going to vote for Joe!

  30. Glacia says:

    I hope they get back together!I hope Izzy tells the truth! I hope Karis has a plant in her hands because she is a green thumb and wants to be a gardner or something…..;)
    Wow! Lots of hope! lol 😀

  31. Chellekaz says:

    Poor Georgia, I understand why she did what she did, even if she over reacted. No one wants to feel like they’re playing second-fiddle to their husband’s job… Never mind his hobbies. Maybe he should cut back at work so he can pay some attention to his family? Can’t help but feel bad for Mason, he doesn’t deserve what he got, hopefully Izzy will come clean.

  32. Carebear728 says:

    I knew he wasn’t cheating!!!

  33. Megan says:

    O____O Izzy you need to tell the truuuuuuth!
    lol love the Knocked Up-ness 😉

  34. dorkney says:

    Is it okay to be in love with virtual people??

  35. Miss Harlequin says:

    Lol, what? Why is she so mad that he has a hobby? I get that she might be a little miffed that he’s been lying to her, but I think that she wayyyyy overreacted!

  36. Teddy says:

    Hello. First of all, great chapter! I love your story so much. But, there’s one thing I don’t understand. The Mason thing.
    At first, I thought Izzy was going to say she was in love with Mason, then I thought they had slept together, then I felt like he raped her, but by the time I finished reading that scene, I thought Izzy was keeping silent because nothing really happened. May you please explain?
    Thank you so much, I can’t wait for the next chapter! 🙂

    • StarSarah says:

      You are right. Nothing has ever happened between Izzy and Mason, but she is in love with him. It upset her so much that her sister is with him that when her sister confronted her to find out why she was upset she said nothing cause she did not know what to say. India jumped to conclusions and Izzy did not deny it cause she knew that India woudl break up with Mason if she thought he had tried it on with her. Izzy is wrong and jealous! x

  37. Sims3Rocks says:

    Okay, so I know I’ve asked this question before, but Sarah what is the mode you use to let children and toddlers have adult hair?

    • StarSarah says:

      It was a mod from mod the sims that i downloaded years ago. I cannot remember what it was called but if you go to Mod the Sims i am sure you can search for it x

  38. ImJimmy says:

    Love the update – and I really can’t wait for the next chapter.. ❤

  39. GREAT Chapter!!!! 😀
    I just now caught up on this legacy. I started with the Shenston legacy, then the Seraphine legacy, Tale of a Vampire, and now I’m finally caught up in the Starr legacy!! You’re an amazing writer! I absolutely love reading your stories. 🙂
    Can’t wait for the next chapter! 😀

  40. Jedidiah says:

    Fantasy star gazing? LIke playing fantasy football? Hopefully Georgia and Luke figure things out and get some sort of time management…both need to relax…vacation time!! The kids are old enough. With all the teenage drama I’m looking forward to the next update. -Jed

  41. Elli James says:

    I’m relieved to hear that Luke wasn’t cheating on Georgia, but she does have a right to be upset with him about lying. Hopefully they can work things out soon!

    I cannot believe Izzy did that to Mason and India! I mean I understand how much it hurts to see them together, but to put a lie like that on Mason? Not okay!

    Can’t wait for the next chapter!! I’m excited to hear about the other three Starr kids!

  42. Anonymous says:

    WOWW! i loved this chapter! And izzy is mean! she should’ve said something to India about Mason…i hope Georgia and Luke work their problems out soon, cant wait for thursday 😀 i love this legacy…but hmmm i dont know who i iwll vote for heir next, i really like India. How many chapters are left in this generation? (:

  43. spongeb0berz says:

    I’m in love with Joe. X_X

  44. simmechic12 says:

    great chapter 🙂

  45. ATMzie says:

    Oh, yay, Joe is good looking! It is now official that he is my favorite. He reminds me of Charlie(jr)!

  46. Sherlister says:

    aww Joe is so cute 😀 He’s still my fave~
    Hopefully Georgia and Luke work things out soon!

  47. adorable, as always 🙂
    my new sims 3 story has just begun, check it out if you get the chance!

  48. auburn101 says:

    Good news that Luke isn’t cheating, but still I find it unfair towards Goergia. She needs her time off as well, and she’s getting no support from Luke. I hope they talk about it and solve everything, or else it’ll be the kids who will suffer from it! Great update, I loved all the dialogue!

    Auburn Legacy
    New chapter up on my blog

  49. HHHeee says:


    • StarSarah says:

      Yeah im really sorry but there wont be one until Monday now. Bit of a crisis at work and have no time to play. Literally no time. Im so sorry guys but i am going to have to work on next chapter this weekend. Its a good one though with an heir vote at the end. Stay tuned…..


  50. Anonymous says:

    I thought you said the update would be today 😦

  51. jaaziieee says:

    i think Kirk looks a bit like Georgia’s little brother Howie XD

  52. hey, I was wondering, where did you get Joe’s hair? I really like it!

  53. sims3rocks says:

    Hi Sarah, I wanted to post this link to my new commentary/thrid person story. My legacy got deleted cause my computer crashed 😦 But this story should be finished soon as its only gonna be 10 chapters.
    Check it out if you can please!
    Two Men and A Chick:

  54. Caitlin says:

    I’ve really enjoyed this legacy so far. This is my first comment because I decided to create a wordpress. ^^

    Anyhoo, this chapter was great. I think Georgia overreacted a little bit about Luke’s whereabouts, but he should have been honest with her. India and Izzy need to start getting along again! They used to be the greatest and funniest team! I really hope things get better for the both of them.

    Also, I can’t wait to hear about the other kids, I love Joe! (:

  55. Sianystar says:

    I really, really want to know what happens in a ‘fantasy star-watching draft’. I’ve been (seriously, lame I know) thinking about it since I first read the chapter and there are so many things going round in my head! So glad Knocked Up inspired you, you got me thinking!

    Great stuff Sarah 🙂 Looking forward to the next update!!

  56. Skylar says:

    Am I the only one who sees a resemblance between Kirk and Carter as a teen? Different coloring but same features . . . lol anywayz, great chapter as always Sarah

    • Glacia says:

      Yes, he looks exactly like him except for coloring and maybe his nose! I was just about to comment on that! 🙂

  57. Eila Mcg says:

    I was just wondering if a new chapter was going to come out soon, because I thought that it was coming out on thursday? Sorry if this seems rude. Eila x

  58. hghgirl97 says:
    Please check out our new legacy! 🙂
    We love yours!
    Happy simming

  59. iJewelDOTcom says:

    Where did you get India’s Hair from ? I really like it! = )

  60. Sammi says:

    Holy crud, the chapter title made me think OH GOD NOT THEIR MARRIAGE.

    Ha, like the marriage is the most important thing ever. xD

    I know it’s a little legacy, but would you check me out and maybe link to me? I wanna be as awesome as the Starrs (and the Seraphines).

  61. dinkyjen says:

    All the kids look fab!!
