"Wow. That’s all you have to say? Fucking coward."
"I’m trying not to start a fight. I am on a date, after all.”
Russell eyed Talia, then turned back to Ricky. “Wow. Have you told h er yet? Of course you haven’t! Because a girl like that would never hang around with scum like you unless she didn’t know how low a life form you are.”
Talia walked up to Ricky. “Let’s get out of here,” she begged.
"Of course, babe. Hope I don’t see you around, Santiago."
"Likewise," Russell spat.
Anonymous: Santa again ^^ Is it any particular kind of poses you would like to have? Unfortunately, couples poses are not my forte. I want to make you 100% happy :)
I can always use more portrait poses - like ones where the sims are looking and smiling at the camera, maybe doing something silly? I’d especially like some more traditionally masculine/unisex poses! Like these:
"Thanks for dinner," Talia said. "I’ve never had a burger here before. It was great!"
"My pleasure, Talia! You just have to promise -" THUNK!
"What was that?" Talia asked, peeking around the corner of the building to see a pair of feet sticking out of the dumpster.
"That’s disgusting," Ricky muttered as the figure emerged.
"Well I’m sorry that some of us couldn’t afford to eat if we didn’t have full rides. Get your silver spoon out of your ass, Herald."
"Santiago," Was all Ricky said. His voice was ice cold.
Anonymous: Hello, I'm your Secret Santa :) I wanted to ask about what you'd be pleased. A Sim (with or without CC?) Or clothing, poses :) What would you bring joy?
I’d be fine with anything, really! Though I can never have enough poses! :)
"…so that’s it? That’s all it does?"
"Yup. Pretty lame, huh? But making it do that… that’s the interesting part. I’m not exactly sure how, but I have a tiny hunch.”
"What does your hunch say?"
"Why should I tell you that? So you can run off with the information and beat me to figuring it out?" He was teasing, but it still agitated Talia. She blushed and looked up, giving Ricky the perfect opportunity to strike and beat her. Again.
He smiled at her, and again her stomach did somersaults. “Why don’t we go get something to eat? I’m starving!”
"Ricky!" Talia called. She’d looked all around the comic store and had finally found him in a corner playing an old-school video game.
"Hey!" he said without looking up. "Just a sec!" A noise came out of the machine, and he growled and kicked it before he turned and smiled at her. "What’s up, Talia?"
Her heart fluttered at that smile. She wanted to respond, but her mouth was dry. “Oh, right, the Pad Tie Node. Sit down, we’ll talk details.”
"Hey!" Russell approached Talia after most of the crowd had dispersed. She’d taken it upon herself to help clean up after the protest.
"Oh! Hey Russell!"
"Thanks for coming, Talia. It means a lot."
"Well, you know how it goes. Gotta be a voice for the voiceless, you know?" She laughed and shrugged.
"Totally! Hey, you wanna go grab a bite to eat?"
"I would, but I have to go meet someone. It’s sort of, er…" a date. But was it?
"Oh, yeah, I totally understand. See you later!"
When Talia arrived at Quad at three o’clock, she found a group of people gathered around a podium. Russell was there, shouting into the mic, and she gladly accepted the sign a fellow protester handed her. When Russell stepped away from the podium, Talia grabbed the mic and started chanting: “Stop animal testing!” Soon, everyone was chanting.
The protest lasted long after darkness fell. It was a huge success.
My game keeps freezing. First it was at midnight, so I was like, “Oh, oka, time to make a new Sims 3 folder.” So I spent the morning doing that. But now it’s 6:03 in game and frozen. :’( Everything like trees and the sleeping zzzs are still moving but the clocks’ frozen and nothing’s happening. Too bad I didn’t save when my gut told me to! :(
