Three years have passed, taking Ariana Quick on her biggest journey of her life.
Back when she was a teenager, Ariana was a lost soul named Orion who was chasing his true self. His mother, Desiree, had been controlling and cruel at points - driving a wedge into their family. Bellatrix, his twin sister, had moved out with their mother, Mira, when everything became too much. Orion had watched as Bellatrix flourished away from the horrible pressure of their mother, Desiree. He had been filled with jealousy, confusion and loss when Bellatrix left the family home.
Following Desiree and Mira’s divorce, Desiree had become more lenient and had tried to make amends. But…it hadn’t been enough. Orion had been put into a box and never able to express who he truly was.
That sim was Ariana. Her mother, Desiree, had been the first sim she had told about everything she had bottled up for years. She had been hiding her true self behind what her mother wanted her to be. Orion was no more - Ariana was who she needed to become.
Ariana will never forget her mother, Desiree’s, reaction to the news. Desiree had wept and apologised over and over for placing Orion - Ariana’s former self - into a position where she was miserable and lost. Since her transition, Desiree and Ariana have been closer than ever.
Now studying a distinguished art history degree at Britechester University, Ariana is the happiest she has ever been.
