Still Life: A Sims 4 Story

Prologue I still remember the moment I woke up. As I opened my eyes, I became aware of how cold the ground was against my naked cheek.  I was resting against patterned tiles, the kaleidoscope of diamonds adding to my already scrambled thoughts.  Where was I?  I could smell the…
