Dylan was starting to feel limited by his own nectar-making equipment. Nectaring took a lot of time, and he could only work with one fruit combination at a time.
Eventually, he decided to approach Fawn Rockwell, the proprietress of the local nectary, to see if he could make use of some of their on-site equipment.
Connery still went out hunting and brought back all sorts of strange things. The question of where he found the concrete fire hydrant was second only to how he managed to get it home.
She held it at the beach clubhouse, despite the cold. Vickie couldn’t have been happier.
They spent the entire party hogging the karaoke machine until they drove everyone else away.
This was a new chapter in a beautiful friendship.
Since her father had set up a lab on the third floor, she grabbed the second floor office next to her bedroom and took it as her own lab.
Though every experiment had a certain chance of failure.
Fortunately, she had a great way to work off the tension.
And a father who helped her do it.
Actually, the video game system was one of the biggest sources of strife in their new household.
When he wasn’t working, Sawyer often wanted to kick her out of the living room so that he could play video games that he didn’t consider “child appropriate.”
To get private revenge, she downloaded pirated versions of her dad’s games to the office computer and beat them before he did.
Sometimes, on her way to bed, she’d find that Sawyer had gamed himself to sleep.
Being that there was no one else, it was her job to pull him off the sofa, dust him off, and send him to bed.
It wasn’t always clear who was the parent in this relationship.
They began the evening with a rousing game of Synesthesia. It was immediately clear why Emily wanted to come here. She was an old pro at this game, and she stomped Sawyer in no time.
“I’ve never met a woman with such amazing eye-hand coordination,” Sawyer said afterward.
Emily laughed. “You say the sweetest things.”
Abby was incredibly curious about Sawyer’s new gal. When he told her he was going to a date to the bowling alley, she just couldn’t resist making an excuse to be there herself.
She did her best to be inconspicuous. It wasn’t too hard, at least until the paparazzi invaded, and she had to leave.
Sawyer was pretty disgusted by his performance.
But not half as disgusted as Emily.
Sawyer couldn’t stop laughing.
“All right. All right,” Emily conceded. “I deserved that.”
Under the black lights of the bowling alley, Emily looked into Sawyer’s eyes and reached out to take his hands. It was the first time they touched. Sawyer was suddenly terrified. He had to force himself not to pull away.
“Sawyer Sample,” Emily said. “Where have you been all my life?”
“Making some very big romantic mistakes, apparently,” Sawyer said.
Emily raised an eyebrow. “Do you think this is another mistake?” she asked.
“It feels great,” Sawyer said, “but I’m a very poor judge of character.”
“We can take it slow,” Emily said. She squeezed his hand.
Sawyer squeezed back and smiled nervously at her.
Judith Culp is a former papergirl. I turned off Homeless Management in NRaas
StoryProgression, and I couldn’t be happier. Either EA fixed most of the bugs that generate extra homeless to stuff your town, or something else is keeping them from happening. I’m using settings on Register (I think) that generate service and role sims from genetics in the town and the sim bin, so they’re a nice source of extra genetics. When one of my actives develops a relationship with one, I usually move them into town. Judith is now the ward of Patrick Watchmaker, schoolteacher and formerly the Second Doctor. (See, I’m never going to use Doctor as a surname again ;-).)
I just love Emily’s face. She kind of looks like the Wicked Witch of the West, but in a good way. My hand-picked gene pool is producing some great faces. I highly recommend seeding the population with celebrity simselves — sims designed to look like an existing person have the most unusual genetics. All sims don’t have to look alike!
