As a natural cook Burleigh quickly became in charge of cooking all the meals at the monastery and in this way he found his place easily. Peter was delighted that the monastery was finally growing, with Helena and Burleigh it would really stand a chance of surviving and even thriving. Together he was sure they would recruit more monks and nuns to join them and the word of The Watcher would be heard by every sim of Castle Keep.
With more monks taking care of the day to day at the monastery, Peter found more time to fulfill his duties as a spiritual guide to the sims of Castle Keep. His visits around Castle Keep could take more time and thus be of better quality for the sims that sought his wisdom. He realized that he also had time to visit more households and expanded his route. It was all for the better, with more time for the sims of Castle Keep, the more popular the monastery became, and the more interested sims became of picking the way of The Watcher for their children.
Helena, who also did visits around Castle Keep to help wherever she could, found herself spending most of her time visiting the households that kept dogs. As a dog sim she just found it so fulfilling to cuddle and play with all the dogs she met, she just prefered their company over any sim. Still, she had to check herself, there were more needy sims in Castle Keep than those who were dog owners.
Suddenly a devastating day arrived, the day when the reaper came for Peter. The monastery was in turmoil and Helena was particularly devastated. He had been like a father to her and she was eternally endebted to him. And to the monastery. Now it was her turn to take over and lead the monastery forward. Being the head nun was a great responsability.
Death was a natural part of every sims life, and as a monk or nun, one was particularly aware of it. Life at the Aspen Woods Monastery had to go on, even without Peter. Burleigh and Helena did what they knew best and got to work. There was no better gift for Peter than maintaining the monastery that he so proudly founded all those years ago.
