Day 4: Basketball, Swimming and goodbyes
The last day of the Honeycomb Valley Athletic Festival started with basketball. As had been the case the previous day, the teens started the day. Also similar to football was the fact that everyone had been coupled up. Each couple had a hoops contest in which they each got three shots at the hoop. The one of the pair with the most baskets would proceed to the next round, which was dunks. The person winning that round would have their points from both matches added to decide whether they won 1st, 2nd or 3rd place.
Meanwhile, Esme had made a new friend. Ah yes, I can totally see why these girls hit it off!
Allison was good at more than just giggles and gossip, which she proved by beating Finn in the dunking round.
Rachel fell during her match against Seth, but still managed to beat him.
In the end, Allison won first place, Billy came in second, and Rachel got third place.
Then the sims aged 18 or over had their turn.
Two very serious women in round 2…
And he did! He reached the end of the pool, before Allison had even gotten into the water. Maybe she felt her golden basketball medal was enough?
And so, the final was between Jeffrey, Emily and Joel.
It may not be very clear to see in this picture, but Joel beat Jeffrey by a slight margin. Finally, gold for Joel!
Whether it had been that great dive or something else, Mary was on a roll and easily won her match.
But it didn’t matter, despite that awful landing, Joshua still won!
As you can see, Rémi won, but I’m still doubting whether he didn’t cheat at the start…
And so, the final was between Mary, Rémi and Joshua.
And they’re off!
Oooooh… this is going to be close…
Rémi won, but only just. Joshua ended in second place and Mary brought home her second bronze medal.
Of course Emily, Joel and Jeffrey also received their medals.
As did the basketball winners.
And so, all the sports had been played. The time to close the festival had come. And for this occasion, a party had been organised on the football field.
Even when it was still early, people already started to gather on the field.
Sophie and Jérémy had a little dance, but hey, look who’s interfering again…
Joshua is not one for parties, so he read his book instead.
No Honeycomb Valley event is complete without a performance by The Hot Wings.
People seemed to enjoy their performance.
Lucas tended the bar again.
He was really loving it, just as he had at his aunts anniversary a month ago and was starting to wonder if maybe bartender would be a better profession for him than kitchen scullion…
The bus to Bimlico came in first. Patty bid the guest farewell.
And Holly came to say goodbye to her new friend as well. Maybe they’ll see each other again soon? There’s this great summercamp coming up again next summer?
After the Bimlico residents had left, it was the bus to Sandy Valley which rolled into the station.
Xandra came to say goodbye to Rémi. I’m not sure what Annie was thinking witnessing her ex boyfriend cheating on yet another girlfriend…
Sophie had LOVED having Jérémy this close for a while and really didn’t like having to say goodbye to him again. You’ll probably see him again soon though, Soph. I’m sure of it!
Allison and Esme said goodbye by doing what they do best: gossiping!
And with Luke riding off to take the horses back to where they belong, the festival was really over. It had been good, but the residents of Honeycomb Valley were also looking forward to calmer times…
