She was a little disappointed but soon moved on to working on a plugin and ends up earning §14 for her work.

161

In spite of this, he started feeling confident once he entered his study and began working on a new painting.

He now knew everything he needed to know about the painting skill.

166

Darius came down with the flu so he takes some medicine to cure his ailments. He feels so much better so now he can spend his day off  work cranking out a few paintings.

170

It is his birthday so when Esther returns home she bakes a chocolate for him to celebrate with. As he blows out the candles on his birthday cake Darius makes a wish. He knows that by becoming an elder that means his days are numbered and since he is a long way from completing his goal of earning 1 million simoleons, he makes a wish for his children to one day complete his goal.

171

Richard and Daria celebrate with him and so does Esther but she is in a foul mood. She asked Daria and Richard to clean up before the party and when she sees a pile of scrap on the ground she realises they didn’t. They were going to be in a whole lot of trouble.

172

Now that he was an elder, Darius thought a lot about his future or rather the fact that his future might end up being a lot shorter than he would like. As confident as he was in his children’s ability to take over for him, he didn’t want to leave them with too much of a burden. His paintings were selling for a lot of money. He can make more money from selling one painting than from one day of work or even from selling a days’ worth of produce and collected items so that was where his focus needed to be.
