World Oasis Springs
Lyla Vandermorgan (formerly Grunt) is a deceased Sim living in Oasis Springs. She is Lyla Grunt and it is explained what happened to her, Lyla never died like it said, and she faked her death to escape the abusive Buzz Grunt and to start a new life away from her children. Lyla got a fresh start as she started dating Don Lothario and is pregnant with his child. In Lyla's early stages of pregnancy, Olive Specter shows up unannounced and tells Lyla that her family has discovered that she is still alive and they are all on Lyla's trail, leading Lyla to realise that even though her new life is beginning, it could end very soon. Even though Lyla's newborn baby will biologically be the sibling of Tank, Buck and Ripp, she is not part of the family as Lyla has disowned her three sons and severed all family ties with the Grunt family. Why Lyla never bothered to bring the children with her after the divorce was never explained. The reason that the Grunt family never got a memory of her death in The Sims 2 is explained, she never died. Lyla is now a great-great-grandmother.

On The RunEdit

Olive tells Lyla the story of what happened, but can't remember how Buzz found out. Buzz now hates Olive because of how she helped Lyla fake her death. A worried Lyla breaks up with Don to keep him safe, as Buzz has always hated men who have dates or flirted with Lyla. After breaking up with Don, Lyla, saddened by her decision, but happy that Don is left out of the situation, slumps away from the house where Don lives. Despite the fact that they both fear that Buzz will eventually track them down, Lyla and Olive live well together and become good friends. On the third trimester of her pregnancy, Lyla stepped out to take the garbage out and noticed Buzz (re-created as a Sims 4 character) walking on the opposite road from her, having tracked her down to Willow Creek, directly next to Oasis Springs where Lyla actually lives. A horrified Lyla walks home and eats dinner with Olive. Buzz never spotted her. Lyla gave birth to her daughter Ariana, but sent her away to live across the road with Olive to fool Buzz into thinking they have no connection. Lyla can't have any connection with Ariana until the coast is clear and Buzz had stopped looking. Lyla is living with Nervous Subject (Olive's son) until Olive and Ariana move back in. On Ariana's birthday into a child Buzz leaves town and gives up. Lyla moves In with Olive and Ariana, leaving the house to Nervous. Lyla is now free to live a happy life with her friend and child without living in fear.

Love LifeEdit

Eventually Lyla and Olive get married, Olive later died only a few hours after the wedding, Lyla pleaded for Olive to remain alive and die naturally, but the Grim Reaper still killed her. Strangely, when Ariana witnessed the death she got the very sad emotion, but when Lyla witnessed the death, she didn't mourn and her emotions stayed happy. Days after Olive's death, Lyla married an elderly woman named Vivienne LaFleur and they stayed together until Lyla's death.


Lyla and Vivienne had just WooHooed, so one of Lyla's moodlets were "Dangerously Tired". Lyla continued working out and died of exhaustion like Olive did. Her grave is in the yard next to Olive's, if Vivienne dies of old age before some unlikely fate causes Don (he moved in after Lyla died) to die, it means that Lyla would be buried between two of her ex lovers, but it will still be the same way with Don if he (unlikely) dies first as he and Lyla have Ariana together.
