Alice hated her father. After all he’d done to her in his life, that’s not really surprising. But he was still the only family she ever had, so nor is it surprising when his death leaves her an emotional wreck for days.
It will be some time before she finishes mourning, but when she does, I think things will be different for Alice. With Kev no longer periodically dropping by to wreck her self esteem, Alice will have a comparatively stable life. With her new job, she will be earning enough to start saving money, even with her spending on food and her charitable donations. There is still a long hard journey to be made if she wants to own a home of her own. But I think the worst of her life is behind her.
While she’s not quite living happily ever after, I think her future will be brighter but less eventful from here on. I feel it is a fitting place to end the story.
But of course, if you’ve cared for Alice while reading this, there’s no reason for her story to end for you. If you own The Sims 3, I invite you to download her to your game and carry on guiding her towards whatever happiness you think you can find for her.
