The Harrison/Evans family

harrison famKai Harrison is a military man. He used to live in the apartment building at the end of Rosalie’s street. Purely by chance (really!), they ran into each other one evening when they were both going for a run. They started talking and decided to take a run together. They enjoyed each other’s company so much, that running together soon became a regular thing. One night Kai decided the time had come to ask Rosalie out on a proper date. She accepted and the rest is history. Soon they were inseparable.
Kai also has a son, from a previous relationship. Joel lived with his mum and his grandparents for a long time. Kai’s ex, Joel’s mother, Xandra, never let go of her party animal ways and still goes clubbing every night. She still lives with her parents, just because she finds it “easy”. She sleeps with many men, as long as they meet her standards. At least these are quite high. Joel used to stay with his dad two nights a week (tuesday and friday). This arrangement was already set and going strong when Kai lived alone, and when Kai and Rosalie moved in together, it remained the same for a while. Soon, Kai and Rosalie started the process of trying to get full custody of Joel. It wasn’t a hard struggle. Even though Joel’s grandparents are lovely, responsible people, it was clear as day that his dad was far more suited to take care of him than his mum was. As of July ’03, Joel lives with his dad and Rosalie.

Rosalie Evans had a rough childhood, in a way. She was raised in Bridgeport by a loving mum, but her dad walked out on his family when Rosalie was still very little. Her mum, Wendy, had to work long hard days in order to provide for herself and little Rosalie. This resulted in Rosalie having to spend most of her time in old broken down daycare centers or, when she got older, at home helping with the housework. She never had much of a childhood and promised herself that, when she got older, she would make sure other kids would be better off than she had been. Rosalie had always been artistic and loved creating and designing things. She has no one favourite colour and just loves doing up rooms and creating things in all the colours of the rainbow. When Rosalie was in her early twenties, her life suddenly changed. Her deadbeat dad, Tim Jessop, who had become a successful and ruthless Honeycomb Valley businessman, had passed away after suffering from a terminal illness. Apparently, after being diagnosed with his illness, Tim had taken a long hard look at the path he chosen and felt remorse for what he had done to his family. He couldn’t bring himself to seek contact with Rosalie and her mum, but instead tried to use his will to make things right again. He had left Rosalie a lot of money, AND his Honeycomb Valley office building. Rosalie and her mum moved to Honeycomb Valley, where Rosalie bought her mum a house along the boulevard. She had big plans for the building her dad had left her and started tearing down indoor walls, putting up new ones, painting, sewing and decorating and eventually created her own daycare center, with a big apartment on the upper floors for her to live.

Joel Harrison is pretty much your average boy. He’s often found outside with his best friends Joshua and Ryan. He loves his grandparents, but doesn’t have much of a bond with his mum.

    • I love playing the daycare! Just not too long in a row, because then it gets dull. Silly EA not allowing day care professionals to take the kids to a community lot. They gave us the fun daycare van, but you can’t use it to take the kids anywhere.
