Spring was in the air. Abby found some of Garry Crumplebottom’s old compositions in Sky’s music gear. Arya Crumplebottom wanted them back. They met at the bowling alley. Abby stepped inside, saw who else was there, and immediately tried to get out of their line of sight.
“Wait, isn’t that your uncle Forest?” Arya asked. “Who’s that he’s dancing with?”
Abby was pretty sure it was Forest’s boyfriend’s husband. “Uncle Forest’s love life is complicated,” she said weakly. “We try not to ask.”
Love Day arrived.
The day should have been bright and sunny, but the weather wouldn’t cooperate. It dawned gray and overcast instead, sort of gloomy. At least it wasn’t raining.
Abby fluttered about the house, trying on clothes, putting her hair up, then down, then up again.
Finally, Dylan asked. “Are you all right? We’re going to the Love Day fair, not a publicity event.”
Abby flushed. “It’s not that. It’s just….”
Dylan raised his eyebrows. “You’re meeting someone there, aren’t you?”
“Sort of,” Abby admitted. “Just a guy I met recently. Mostly a friend thing.”
“Riiight,” Dylan said. “I’m interested in meeting a friend who make you do that to your hair.
Chaim was there, waiting for her.
“I’m sorry I kept you waiting,” Abby said. “There were just a hundred things to do with the kids before we left.”
And she got Jasper Crumplebottom to do her homework for her. He never knew what hit him.
Winston was adorable.
Andria nudged Dylan. “You know, I think they have the right idea.”
“Wait!” he called. “That’s totally inappropriate!”
Chaim’s face fell when he saw the response. “I thought this would be the perfect time to ask you to be my girl.”
“I can’t believe I’m doing this,” Abby said.
“Doing what?” Chaim asked.
“What does that machine know anyway,” she said. “Yes.”
“Yes, you’ll be my girl?”
If anyone had told Abby she would be a cop’s girlfriend, she would have thought they were insane.
Abby and Chaim tried to capture the title of King and Queen of the Dance. They didn’t get it, but they sure had a great time trying.
Dylan escorted Andria back to the dance floor. “Care to try again, my lady?”
“It’s just not our day to dance, is it?”
I absolutely love greeting card pictures. I put them in the biggest size digital frame so that I can see them when I play. The sad thing is that they get erased really easily, and I can’t get new ones by going back to an earlier save file like paintings. So I give up. I’m just going to take screen captures of them for posterity :).
The Easter eggs are screwed up. There weren’t any at the festival site, so I decided to add them in buydebug. Guess that was a bad idea — every time someone picked up an egg, they reset. I’m cranky about that. I’d like to actually collect them for festival tickets sometime. I’m not sure what was up. I guess I’ll see what happens next Love Day. Still, they have some great animations.
Victoria really gets mobbed every time she enters a community lot. That Irresistible trait is powerful.
