October 05: Moving on (Pt. 2)

Move back to…
part 1

Cats moving on

Sad times for two elderly ladies. Shortly after one another, Pebbles, cat of Donna Mason, and Mitzy, cat of Lydia Chapman, passed away. Both ladies were very upset. Maybe they can comfort eachother?

43

Will Esme move on?

When Spooky day rolled around, the teens of Honeycomb Valley only had a few lessons in the morning. And when Esme left school around noon and went to get her bike to go home, she stumbled upon something she wished she hadn’t…

44

Right… They’re not just friends anymore… For a moment Esme considered saying something, but she decided against it and quietly got her bike and rode off towards Martha‘s house. Only to realise when she was nearly there, her friend would not be…

45

So, she wandered unto the grassy area across from Martha’s house, where the busstop was and got out her phone.

46

– Hey Martha.  I miss you. Where are you? I figured by now you probably haven’t contacted me because the police screen my phone and you don’t want to be found. At least, I hope that’s the reason and you’re not lying dead in a ditch somewhere. I wish you came back… We’d deal with your crazy parents! I really need you back here, so much has happened. My sister is having sex (finally, right?) and Finn and miss too-much-hair are making out. Eugh. I really hope you will reply at some point. For the time being I guess I’ll hang out with Sophie tonight or something. But I’d really rather be with you. Love you. X. –

The party that had nothing to do with moving on

Over at The Greenery, Liam and Isa were playing in his yard, while their parents were preparing for a party.
The residents of The Greenery had decided to throw a feast party together to celebrate Spooky Day and had invited all their joined friends and family to The Field that night.

47

Colin made a fire and since no one had brought any food (yes, it was a FEAST party, yet no one brought anything, stupid glitchy game), Susie tended the barbecue.48

There were chats between friends, and new connections were made.49

There was some dancing. (Joel didn’t seem to mind being the only teen there)50

And Susie drew a picture of Bradley51

Liam played peek-a-boo with Isla and they were watched from some distance by mother-to-be Morgan.52

Morgan couldn’t wait to have a child of her own!53

Despite the party being rather uneventful, the guests stayed long and afterwards felt it had been amazing. Colin finally put out the last fire around 2 in the morning.

54

James and Jill move on

Earlier that same night, James, Daniel, Jill, Sarah and Seth were hanging out at The Bumblebee.

55

But Daniel withdrew himself from the conversation when an interesting text came in. 56

He sat back down for only a few minutes after that and then got up to tell his friends he was leaving.

57

“Right, I’m going. Sadie just texted me saying her parents are going to a party at The Greenery and her sister is out tonight too, so…. yeah… bye!”

58

“What! NO!” Jill exclaimed. “We just got here! You’re ditching your best friends for your girlfriend?!”
“No.” James chuckled. “He’s ditching us to have sex with his girlfriend. Perfectly justified! Bye Dan!”

59

“I seriously can’t believe this!” Jill went on.

60

“Oh, come on.” Sarah joked “You just don’t get it because you haven’t had any in years!”
“Well… that’s not entirely true…”
Jill replied. And looked at James.

6162

This look did not go unnoticed…63

“What was that!?” Sarah uttered. “What was that look?! Did you two…? No, you didn’t seriously go down that road again, did you? When?!”
“After the Christmas party…”

64

“…”

65

“So, does this mean you’re getting back together…?”

66

“No. We’re not.” James said resolutely.
“Well… maybe at some point…” Jill mumbled.

Seth hadn’t said much throughout the whole conversation, but now he was as shocked as his girlfriend was.

67

“I love you both, really, I do, but you just don’t work together! If you do want to give it a go, please consider it VERY thoroughly!”
“Indeed.” 
Sarah agreed.
Then Seth and Jill went to get a drink and James was left at the mercy of his sister…

68

“You’re leading her on, James. She’s not over you, even though it’s been two years. And if you ‘occassionally’, ‘casually’ sleep with her, she never will  get over you. I mean, look at her, she still has hope in her heart you will one day get back together…”
“But we’re not, Sarah. It was just a fun night. You know me, I’m not looking for a steady relationship…”
“I do know that, James, but she doesn’t. And if you sleep with her, it means way more to her than it does to you. And it could ruin your friendship. You have to be honest with her…”
“You’re right, I know you’re right…”

A few drinks and a lot of laughter later, Seth felt it was high time he and Sarah had some privacy, so he told her.

69

She giggled. “Hmm, yeah, let’s go…”
Seth seemed very pleased!70

Just before leaving, Sarah turned to her brother and Jill. “Can we trust you two not to do anything stupid?”
“Sure sis. Go. Have fun.” 
James winked.

As soon as Seth and Sarah had left, James sat next to Jill on the sofa and put his arm around her.

71

“I think we need to talk, Jilly…”
“Yes, you’re probably right…”
“I meant what I said earlier, I really don’t see us getting back together. I mean… you’re great and we both know we have an amazing time whenever we do get together, but I’m… just not in a place in my life where I want to be in a relationship. And I’m not sure if and when I will be, but you shouldn’t put your life on hold waiting for me… You’re much too sexy for that!”

Jill giggled and then got up.

72

“Okay. Okay. But I do love you, James..”
“I love you too, Jilly. You were my first kiss, my first love, my first everything. And on top of that you’re one of my very best friends. And I want us to always have that. Which is all the more reason we should let go…”

“Yes… You’re right.”

And after a looooooong hug, James went on to say:

73

“Now, go out there and find some poor sod whose heart you can break. Because you don’t even seem to notice it, but there is some serious interest out there, Jilly. Have you even noticed the way that Narai guy was looking at you when he gave us that tour? “

74

“Really!? Hmmm, I might look into that! But now I’m going home.”75

“Bye James…”
“Bye Jilly…”

And with that Jill moved on. As did James. Clearly.76

Lucy moved on

Near the end of the month, there was someone else moving on. This time it was Lucy, who turned 40! She celebrated by having a small dinner party with her family.

Susie and Luke were first to arrive. Lucy couldn’t believe how big her sister’s belly was getting!

77

Time for cake!

78

Nick in particular seemed excited about his mum’s birthday!

79

Then everyone sat down for a delicious turkey dinner Lucy had prepared. It was a good night.

80

Stonehill moving on

Meanwhile, work in Stonehill (the competition for a new name hadn’t had any great suggestions so far) moved on as well. Many derelict buildings had already been demolished and work was well on the way  through out the town. Many of the “residents” had left the area.

81

But on a small broken down park bench, a girl slept… And she looked familiar…

82

However, she wasn’t alone in the park. A boy quietly approached the bench where she slept and ever so silently picked up the backpack which was next to her and then just waited…

Sensing someone was watching her, she woke up and looked up at the boy. The boy holding her backpack.

83

She jumped up immediately!

84

“That’s mine! Give it back right now!”
“Here you go. You’re just lucky I picked it up and not someone else. Lesson one in sleeping rough: Always hold your belongings close. Oh, and don’t pack them in a fancy backpack. You are clearly new at this. I’m Ray by the way.”
“M…Mmm.. Martha…”
“Nice to meet you, M-Martha. You look like you could use a slightly more decent place to sleep. My friend Liz and I live in that building right there, for as long as it still stands. Come on, just make sure no one sees you.”

And so Martha followed Ray to the building he referred to as the “Runaway House”, where she was introduced to Liz.
They didn’t seem to hit it off…

85

And so, October came to an end and everyone moved on. On to November…

October 05: Moving On (Pt.1)

Moving on; according to the dictionary it can mean one of three things: To leave the place where you are staying and go somewhere else, to start a new activity, or, to accept that a situation has changed and be ready to deal with new experiences. Considering the events of October 05, “moving on” certainly seemed to be a theme in Honeycomb Valley…

After Martha moved on

The first day of October marked the morning after Martha‘s disappearance. In the midst of the morning chaos at the Edwards’ house, the fact that she wasn’t there first went unnoticed. There was annoyance over the bathroom and all the kids wolfed down their breakfast in an attempt not to be late for school.

wp-1490557242559.png

Joshua was the first to notice his elder sister was not present and he asked his mum if she had seen Martha come down this morning.

2

“No, I haven’t seen her” Amy said. “But she was in quite a mood last night, so I guess she just left for school early this morning.”

She hadn’t, as we already know… And Esme obviously noticed this immediately and checked her phone to see if she maybe had a missed message from Martha saying she was home ill or something. There was no message, so Esme decided to send one herself.
– Where are you Marth? Have they send you to the convent already? Text me back! X –

3

By the time the first break rolled around, Esme still hadn’t received a reply. This was very unlike Martha… When she noticed Joshua in the cafeteria, she went up to him to ask him if he knew what was up with his sister.

4

Joshua explained the events of that morning to Esme…

5

“She wasn’t at breakfast either, nor in her bedroom. My mum said she must’ve already gone to school, but I know she had a fight with my parents last night, so that might have something to with it…”
“Yeah, I know, she texted me last night saying something about how your parents want to send her to a convent or something? ”
“Ehhhh, I don’t know about that, but it sure sounds like my dad… I don’t think they already did though, my mum would tell us…”
“Well… something is not right…”

And so, Esme went to the police station after school, to see if someone there could help her. They promised they’d look into it.

6

Joshua in turn rushed home after school to share his worries with his mum…

7

“… She wasn’t at school! And Esme said Martha texted her last night, something about a convent? Is this true, mum? Have you sent her away?”

And then the realisation of the situation they were in came crashing down on Amy… She immediately called her husband in, who was working in the garden…

8

“She’s GONE, John! She must’ve ran away! Where is she, John!? What did we do!? We drove her away, John! This is all our fault!”

It took John a moment to gather his thoughts…

9

But he soon realised consoling his wife had top priority.10

“I’m not pleased about this either, dear, but we’ll find her. I mean, how far could she have gone, really?”

Amy and John obviously notified the police as well. Combined with the visit Esme had paid to the police station earlier, the Honeycomb Valley Police Department took this case very seriously and officers Abbey and Andrew were sent out to the Edwards’ house.

11

Amy was happy to see them…

12

…and immediately started telling them as much as she could.

13

John’s tone was a tad different.14

“Martha had lost her way and we were doing all we could to rectify the situation. Yes, we were going to send her to a convent, but as this shows, we were already too late and should have done that a long time ago. I think you should have a chat with that Esme girl as well, she’s been a bad influence on Martha ever since they were children… I wouldn’t be surprised if she was the one who talked her in to running away…

And yes, after the interview with John and Amy, Abbey and Andrew set off to visit the Stevens household.15

Sadie welcomed them in…16

… but it was Esme they came to talk to.17

Esme wasted no time in telling Abbey and Andrew all they needed to hear.18

“These people are crazy, I tell you. Crazy! I’m actually not surprised she ran way. If anything, I’m surprised she stayed as long as she did, to be honest! She was totally repressed there! Her dad would flip out over a skirt! Isn’t that like child abuse or something?”

And she didn’t stop there…

19

“No, she hasn’t contacted me, not since last night. You know, that’s weird as well, right? She ALWAYS tells me everything! Are you sure her dad hasn’t stuck her in that convent already? I wouldn’t run it past him… Maybe you should check the place out.”

Moving on to University

A few days later, there was a group of friends moving on in a different way; they officially enrolled in University. Daniel will study History, Sarah and Jill are exploring the culinary curriculum, Seth is going to be a Medicine student and James will obviously study Music.

Suzan and Anna, not pictured here, will take Philosophy and Politics respectively.

20

After their official enrollment, our friends had brunch at The Aquarium.

21

Finn moves on

Not long after it had become clear Martha had indeed disappeared, missing person posters were put up all over Honeycomb Valley to encourage anyone who had any tips on her whereabouts to contact the police. Posters were also put up around the high school. When Finn caught his ex-girlfriend staring at the poster of her best friend, he felt bad for her and went up to her to ask if she was okay.

22

Esme stared at the picture of her missing friend and sighed.23

“I don’t know Finn, I just hope she’s okay..”

A hug always helps, especially one from Finn…

24

After this encounter with Esme, Finn and Jada walked home together through the park.25

“You know, Finn…” Jada said.
“Hmm?”
“Don’t take this the wrong way, but… I think she’s still into you…”
“Who is? Esme?”
“Yeah… I mean, I know she’s sad about her friend, and I get that… But that hug… I dunno, it just seems to me there’s maybe more there than you’d think…”
“Hmmm… Well, you know what? It doesn’t matter. Because I’m not into her anymore! Come on, do you want to come over to my place? I have this new album and you just HAVE to hear it!”

And so they did. They had a little dance in Finn’s room.

26

And when the music became slower, they moved in a bit closer…27

There was a look…28

… an embrace…29

…and eventually, a kiss.30

Yup, Finn is definitely not into Esme anymore!

Daniel and Sadie move on

Also in October, Daniel and Jill both turned 20. To celebrate, they took their best friends (and obviously Sadie, being Dan’s girlfriend) out for a night of sushi and bowling.

31

After they had finished their dinner, Sadie and James, being the singers of The Hot Wings, did a little karaoke together.

32

And then it was time to go bowling!

33

As the night wore on, Sadie told her boyfriend she had thought of another way they could celebrate his birthday… Daniel didn’t need any further explanation.34

And the two lovebirds got on the subway to go to Sadie’s house.35

Once in Sadie’s bedroom, Daniel took a moment to ask his girlfriend is she was sure she wanted to do this…

36

She was.37

The next morning, Daniel was a bit nervous though. Having spent the night meant he would now have to face Sadie’s family and they would probably all put two and two together…
He expressed his worries to Sadie.

38

“The only one who’s likely to say anything is my sister and I’ll just tell her to shut up!”

So, they got up, Sadie put on her pyjamas and Daniel grabbed his t-shirt.

39

“Don’t worry. Sadie said. “It’ll be fine. I love you.”
“I love you too. Let’s go…”

And sure enough, the first person they ran into downstairs was darling Esme.40

Who wasted no time commenting on the situation…

41

“Well, well, look who’s here! So it finally happened, sis? About time too, don’t you agree?”
“Shut up Es.”

And with that, the awkward moment passed and they all enjoyed breakfast together.

42

Moving on to…

July 05: Windiwell Revisited (Pt. 3)

Go back to…

part 2

Unfortunately, Lison wasn’t the only one catching the flu. Kylie got ill too and had to stay in bed as well.
With Kylie out of the running, the task of entertaining the teens fell entirely on (childish) Don. And the ideas he had weren’t always met with much enthusiasm. Like his plan to go the ranch. Although Molly, Holly and Kyra liked this, the rest of the gang was rather bored here. And it turned out it wasn’t much fun for the girls either, as there were no horses available to ride.

Molly did ask this local lady if she could perhaps ride her horse, but she wanted none of it.

Screenshot-215

However, Molly persisted and eventually, the lady said yes. Molly was over the moon! She missed her horse Butter and was happy to ride again.

Screenshot-218

Don then took the kids (apart from Molly, who he allowed to stay at the ranch. In a strange town. By herself. While he is responsible.) to the football field, which they liked a little better. Jeffrey and his new friend Elliott had a little one on one and Logan and Khalid took turns showing one another what they could do with a ball.

And Don played guitar…football skills

Holly challenged Ben to a shootout as well, but Ben is much more athletic than he may seem, because he caught every ball she tried to get in and scored every time while she was in goal.

one on one

Silas and Kyra meanwhile only had eyes for each other. Screenshot-229

Don showed his maturity by giving Jeffrey a scare. At least someone was having a good time…

Screenshot-236

Apart from Don, the kids got fed up with the football field before long and they all went back to Windiwell to spend the rest of the afternoon doing their own thing.

Molly and Holly immediately went to take in some sun.Screenshot-237

While friends Logan, Jeffrey and Ben did the thing they love best: fishing!

Screenshot-238

Kyra and Silas had a game of gnubb…

Screenshot-239

..and some closer contact.gnubb romance

Don also had to take care of dinner, so salad it was!

Screenshot-247

After dinner, he made a fire, so they could have marshmallows for dessert.

Screenshot-253

Both Don and Khalid burnt theirs though.burnt marshmellows

Jeffrey didn’t join the group at the fire, he had something much more interesting to do. He found a bird! A nuthatch! How adorable! He decided to try and bring it home and named it Noosa.

Screenshot-256

Holly and Khalid also wandered away from the group after a while for a bit more stargazing before bed.

Screenshot-267

Another day, another breakfast. Which Elliott ate by himself at a separate table… And hey, look who’s up!breakfastThankfully it had only taken a few days for Lison and Kylie to feel better again. Which was a good thing, because the end of their stay was fast approaching.

The plan today was to go windsurfing! Yeah! All teens (and Don) loved this plan!
windsurf

They stopped at the field again. It looked like Noosa was already feeling quite comfortable with Jeffrey because she (he?) showed up there as well.Screenshot-281

Waterballoon fight!

Screenshot-283

In the afternoon, the wind turned and they all got back on their boards to return to the beach. Don stayed behind, because he wasn’t done windsurfing yet.

When he eventually did come back he approached fast and showed up his skills by navigating his board through the swimming kids.

Screenshot-285

While Don was actually quite proud of what he could do with his board,  Kylie was getting fed up with his childish behaviour and took him apart to give him a piece of her mind.childish

“What were you thinking out there?! You could have taken someone’s head off! Stop being so irresponsible! You’re an ADULT! This camp isn’t about you having a good time, it’s about THEM having a good time! And I hear you even left Molly alone on the ranch a few days ago! You’re so childish Don, I don’t know if I can do this with you anymore!”

Don thought Kylie was overreacting.

While Don and Kylie were fighting, this happened in the background….
unexpeted flirt

Wow… Was it because Kyra had something going on with Silas now? Was it jealousy? Whatever it was, Logan, who never paid anything other than friendly attention to Kyra, suddenly couldn’t stop flirting with her.
It confused Kyra greatly. She didn’t flirt back. But this was still Logan…

***Note: as stated previously, I don’t control flirts at Windiwell. I saw Logan flirting with Kyra whilst focused on Kylie and Don. She really is a good girl though and despite it being Logan (whom she’s had “kiss wishes” for ever since she became a teen), she never flirted back. She responded with shy smiles to all his flirts, but then proceeded to “ask about day” and stuff like that. He however, couldn’t stop flirting with her and holding her hands and giving her amorous hugs…)

Molly witnessed the whole thing with interest. Was this so she had something new to gossip about with Holly? Or was it because she wanted to tell her friend Silas someone else was showing interest in Kyra?

No. It turned out Molly was this interested because it gave her an idea. Holly had kissed a boy. Kyra had kissed a boy and now even had another flirting with her. Even Lison had kissed a boy (Elliott, in the very beginning, after they just arrived). She didn’t want to be the only girl not getting kissed this summer! So when Jeffrey stepped out of the water, Molly approached him.

waterflirt

“Wow… You’ve gotten so tan. It looks good on you…”
“Ummm, thanks?”
“Come with me to that tree, I need to show you something”
“O…kay…”

And so Jeffrey joined Molly under the tree and she didn’t waste any time making her move.
She caught him completely by surprise and he didn’t know what to think at first, but hey, if a girl kisses you, what’s a 16 year old boy to do?

another kiss

***Note: it was actually really funny. Molly watched the scene between Logan and Kyra with interest and then went straight up to Jeffrey -whom she only talked to a few times up until then- and started flirting with him. The wish to kiss him came up almost instantly too. So I interpreted it like she didn’t want to be the only girl going home unkissed.***

The last days passed quickly and before long, the last night was upon them. This year, they would leave on a night bus after their karaoke night.

First it was grouppicture time though!

Screenshot-318

Silas and Elliott had the last kitchen duty.last washing up

After which Silas shared a moment with Kyra on the platform.rendezvous

And Molly and Jeffrey discovered a lizard.

Screenshot-333

Then it was time for the traditional last night stuff. Karaoke started a bit earlier than usual due to the fact the bus would leave around 11.Screenshot-335

Despite their argument and the fact that Kylie still didn’t think she could do this with Don another year, they did do the opening number together. Because he is a good singer.

Screenshot-339

The kids, with the exception of Ben, also seemed to like it.

Screenshot-337

Molly and Holly, or “The Ollies”, as they had started to call themselves, also did a duet.

Screenshot-343

The crowd seemed less enthusiastic this time round…

Screenshot-344

Kyra and Lison, Logan and Jeffrey and Silas as a solo artist also did a song. After which all of them had the wish to be professional singers. I don’t think that’s a good idea for any of you, kids, sorry…
sing

After karaoke, they all got their bags.

Screenshot-354

Don told a final ghost story while they waited for the bus.

Screenshot-356

And then it was over and they started their nightly busride.

Screenshot-359

It was morning when the bus arrived in Honeycomb Valley where Kyra, Holly, Logan and Jeffrey had to get off and were greated by familymembers and dogs. home

Kyra started to tell her mother everything about camp. Although… not everything obviously. Silas was kept out of her stories for now. I mean, this is her mother.
Screenshot-365

Even though they were happy to see their parents again, both Holly and Kyra sent their parents away and told them they would come home by themselves so they could say goodbye to their friends and summer romances in private.

Blank squared

After goodbyes, Molly, Silas, Benjamin, Lison, Elliott and Khalid got back in the bus which would take them home as well. Bye bye lovelies, it was so much fun to spend this summer with you! We will miss you!

Screenshot-374

And with that bus leaving, July had ended, but summer had not yet! Oh no, summer still had a lot more in store for Honeycomb Valley… But more on that another time!

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Where do we go from here?

So, now that the bus has left and the group has been split up again, what will happen to the friendships and more intimate connections my simmies made at summercamp? And what will happen to summercamp itself after that fight between Kylie and Don? Will there be another Camp Windiwell next simyear?
Truth is, I don’t know. As far as the friendships and romances are concerned, it’s not entirely up to me as Sandy, Sara and Alex may have plans for their simmies as well. But this is my view on it;
Kyra really likes Silas. She’s not the type of girl to just go around kissing boys for fun. So she wouldn’t have kissed him if she didn’t really like him. I think that from her end she will surely try to keep things going with him for a while. However, as we could see, one look from Logan and she still melts. Her crush on him is deep rooted. If he keeps all this flirting up, it will cause serious dilemma’s for our Kyra. The moment on the beach already quite confused her.
Holly is different. She wanted to kiss a boy this summer and that’s what she did. I don’t see her as the type of girl who takes her summer fling with Khalid very seriously. She will probably text him a few times and wouldn’t be against a few more kisses if they’d ever meet again, but if she meets someone else, or he does, so be it. It’s all good.
Jeffrey is not entirely sure what that kiss with Molly had been about. It was just that one kiss, even though they did hang out a lot after it. I can see them staying friends, but if she wanted more, he would be open to that as well.
As far as Windiwell goes. Hmmm… I’m starting to think I’ve gotten everything out of it that I could have gotten out of it and things are becoming a bit repetitive. I’ll have to see how I feel when summer rolls round again. Time will tell.

Lastly, to my dear Sandy, Sara and Alex; thank you for your teens, I’ve had a blast with them. I’m sorry some of them didn’t get as much “screentime” as some of the others, but dividing attention equally between this many sims isn’t always easy. I also had to limit the number of pictures otherwise this would have been a 5 part story! But here are two bonus pictures for you:

The Ollies being silly (this wasn’t posed!)

July 05: Windiwell Revisited (Pt. 2)

Go back to…
part 1

Over the next few days, the warm weather persisted (yes, even with all these clouds) and on one of those hot days, the group headed to the pool.

And look, Lison and Elliott are being friendly again!

Screenshot-110

Or… maybe not…

Screenshot-108

Lison was really starting to get fed up with Elliott constantly insulting her and berating her ignorance. Maybe he didn’t mean it that way, but it certainly didn’t make her happy. She felt they’d be better of just being friends, and told him so.

***Note: I’m sorry Alex, I’m sorry Sandy, I didn’t mean to break them up. And certainly not this way! I figured maybe this would happen if Lison flirted with Silas a lot, but she didn’t. I don’t know if it’s Elliott’s social awkward trait, but each time I saw him with Lison he was “berating (her) ignorance”. I had set them to romantic interests when they arrived, but with all his insults, they were soon down to acquintances. By this point Lison already had the wish to “just be friends”, but didn’t even get the chance to tell him this, since he had already insulted her to the point of them losing their romantic interest status.***

Poor Elliott, he had so been looking forward to this camp. He had fallen out with most of his classmates at school, so he needed a break. And he would be with Lison again! He hadn’t expected this… What did he do wrong?
Jeffrey, always being the good guy, sat down with him in case he needed to talk.

Screenshot-115

Things were better between Khalid and Holly, with her still flirting shamelessly and him admiring her bikini look.

Screenshot-116

The flirting back and forth between Holly and Khalid went on for most of the afternoon…

Screenshot-114

Dinnertime!

Screenshot-120

Holly and Jeffrey had washing up duty. He wasn’t pleased…

Screenshot-124

After dinner, the kids had some free time. Khalid had set himself a challenge. Keeping the ball up on a small ridge by the pond and not letting it fall in! (he actually chose this spot on his own…)Screenshot-125

Meanwhile, Silas and Kyra (and Ben…) had gone up to the little island where Silas felt the need to tell Kyra she looked really beautiful. Yeah… Silas wasn’t Logan, but Kyra did feel a little tickle in the pit of her stomach when he said that…

Screenshot-126

Back in the common room, Holly took Molly apart to tell her all about how she and Khalid had been flirting all afternoon.

Screenshot-128

Speak of the devil…

Screenshot-131

“Psst, Hols, your boyfriend is coming over!’

Molly was right, Khalid was coming over. Since it had now gotten dark, he wanted to ask Holly if she wanted to watch the stars with him. She happily agreed.

Screenshot-133

After what happened with Saskia on the last trip Khalid had gone on, he decided to take a more subtle approach this time.

Screenshot-139

First a gentle touch and then…

Screenshot-140

To be honest Khalid, I think you would have had success with Holly no matter how you kissed her!

The next morning, the first thing Holly did was inform Molly of the events of last night.

boy gossip

“He totally kissed me!’
“Really?! Was it good!? How did he do it!? Are you going out now?!”
Molly wanted to know everything!

They didn’t get a lot of time to chat though, since it was the warmest day yet, they were heading off to the beach!

Screenshot-151

Holly realised she hadn’t even told Kyra about her kiss yet, so she made sure she did.

Screenshot-153

They were interrupted by Molly though.

Screenshot-156

“Psst Hols, he’s soooo checking you out from over there! Maybe he wants some more kisses!”

Wait, what? Kyra thought. Molly already knew about Holly’s kiss? She didn’t say anything to Holly, but it sure hurt. They were supposed to be best friends! They had always shared everything! And now Holly had shared a big life changing experience with Molly first! Kyra tried not to let it get to her, but when Logan (of all people) asked her what was wrong, she couldn’t hold it in.

Screenshot-157“She’s my BEST friend! And now it’s all Molly this, Molly that!”
“Aww, cheer up! You and Holly have been friends for ages, this girl is not going to change this. Besides, after camp, she’s going back to Bimlico! You know what, come with me to the ocean, it’ll get your mind off of it!”

Even though Kyra had been hoping for at least a hug, she did join Logan in the ocean.

Screenshot-158

Meanwhile Jeffrey and Lison were having a casual chat in the sand.

Screenshot-160

When the day progressed, Kylie rented paddle boats for the group, so they could go down the river.

Screenshot-163

Some of them liked this, others not so much…swans 1 swans 2

They stopped at a field down the river to have a picnic.
(Look how tan these kids are getting!)

Screenshot-173

After the picnic, Holly pulled Khalid apart to a more secluded place for a repeat of last night. (You sure that’s a good idea in swimwear…?)
Screenshot-179

When Don played guitar, Silas again asked Kyra to dance with him. She in turn started to feel that tickly feeling in her stomach again.

slow dance

When the others were already starting to paddle back to the beach, Silas held Kyra back for a while.

Screenshot-186

“You know Kyra… I really, sorta, like you. You’re cool…”
“Yeah… I think… I kinda like you too…”

Screenshot-187

“So umm…. I was thinking… Can I maybe kiss you…?”
“Hehe… Yes… you can…”

kiss

***Note: When Kyra and Silas met on the first day and started chatting, he immediately got the wish to kiss her for the first time. I know Silas has a crush on Ofelia back home, but she kissed his brother at camp last year. Which he may or may not know about. He made a real and unexpected connection with Kyra though and even though I was thinking this would be the summer Kyra and Logan would hook up, she was constantly near Silas and flirting back. She didn’t get the wish to kiss him until they were out on this field though, but when she did, I decided this was inevitable. It wasn’t like Logan was showing any kind of interest in her…***

Back at the beach, Ben, Elliott and Khalid were being athletic.

Screenshot-194

Once Silas and Kyra arrived back at the beach as well, they remained inseparable.

Screenshot-198

Since it was such a lovely day, Kylie and Don decided they would have dinner at the beach as well.
Lison even sat with Elliott, although she doesn’t look very happy about it… The kids sitting outside clearly received more sun this day…beach food

It turned out it wasn’t the food nor the company which cause Lison to pull that face. Unfortunately, she was falling ill… Knowing her responsibility, Kylie took Lison to the doctors.

Screenshot-206

The doctor informed Kylie it looked like it was just flu and ordered bedrest for Lison for a few days. While this wasn’t how Lison had pictured camp, she felt so lousy she did like the idea of just being in bed. She got to borrow a book from Logan who had brought loads anyway and then off to bed it was. Get well soon, Lison!

Screenshot-209

The others were sad having to miss Lison for a few days, but for them, camp obviously still went on… Read about that in…

July 05: Windiwell Revisited (Pt. 1)

Screenshot-10

If you’re thinking, ‘hmm… This does not look like Honeycomb Valley…’, you’re right! It’s not! We have arrived in Appaloosa Plains for the third annual addition of Camp Windiwell. The summercamp proved to be more popular each year and teens from many places other than just Honeycomb Valley were signing up.

After a long busride camp counselors Don and Kylie had arrived with 10 teens. This year the group consists of the following teens:

From Enekjaer:
* Khalid Farsi (16)
* Elliott McGovern (16)

From Bimlico:
* Silas Day (15)
* Molly Hayes (14)

From Sandy Valley:
* Lison Desfranges (13)
* Benjamin Evard (14)

From Honeycomb Valley:
* Jeffrey Abbott (16)
* Holly Clark (14)
* Kyra Cook (14)
* Logan Harvey (15)

Some teens in this group have some history together.
Lison and Elliott are a couple, well, kind of, because how serious can a long distance relationship with a 13 year old get, really? They met when Lison went on an exchange to Enekjaer and really liked each other. They also met again, when Elliott visited Sandy Valley a while later and that stay was again wonderful for both parties. However, Lison also had a crush on Silas last summer when he visited Sandy Valley.

Molly met Holly and Kyra in Honeycomb Valley when she was there for the Athletic Festival in March. She particularly made a connection with Holly as both girls love horses, gossiping and talking about boys! Molly has a huge crush on Seth Day, Silas’ twin, but unfortunately, he’s not here.

Logan and Benjamin became good friends when they met at Windiwell last year. They both love fishing and dogs so they have lots to talk about.

Kyra has had a crush on her friend Logan for YEARS, but he doesn’t seem to notice her. Not as anything other than a friend that is. They watched the stars together last summer, but that’s it. Nothing more happened, through out the entire year…

Now, that’s a little background, now, let’s see what they got up to, shall we?

————————————————-

After the kids brought their stuff to their cabins, they assembled at the stage to hear what Don and Kylie had to say.

IntroductionDon and Kylie explained the rules and told the kids when they were up for kitchen duty. Then Kylie said that, instead of doing the grouppicture at the beginning of camp, they would do it at the end, but she did want to snap a polaroid picture of each of them accompanied by an assignment. Each teen would receive their picture with the camp name and their own name printed on it and was asked to write on the picture what they expected from Camp Windiwell, what they hoped and wished for this summer or why they came here. They were told to hang on to these pictures so that by the end of camp they could look back and see if what they wrote actually happened. Just for fun! The pictures were private and wouldn’t be shared with the group. (But will be shared here, Simlish translated to English for easy reading. 😉 )

Polaroids 2Polaroids 3

We’ll see how much of that will actually happen…

After all this, the teens had the rest of the day to themselves to explore the camp and get (re-)acquainted.  Logan and Khalid weren’t off to a great start…

Good start

Lison and Elliott did better and immediately went for a game of gnubb together.

Screenshot-24

Kyra and Silas discovered a turtle which they watched together for a long time. Fascinating!

Screenshot-27

Molly and Holly were already back to gossiping!

Screenshot-11.jpg

Ben found a banister to slide down.

Screenshot-31

Lison also had a chat with Silas. Now that she was with Elliott, she suddenly had no trouble talking to Silas anymore. She still thought he was cute though!

Screenshot-29

***Note: I guess this is a good point in the story to make a little gameplay note. When I play Windiwell, I play by different rules than when my sims are home. Because I have a big town and my sims go about their business when I’m not there, I use Nraas Story Progression to make sure they don’t autonomously make babies, break up, cheat and the works. I don’t like going back to a family I haven’t played in a while and find the parents divorced and mum pregnant by another man. But at Windiwell, I turn the flirt and romance options of SP on again, so the teens can decide for themselves who they’ll flirt (and fight) with and all that. Makes for a much more interesting summer and since they’re in Appaloosa Plains. the settings won’t affect my sims in Honeycomb Valley. I don’t control flirts at Windiwell at all. Not even if I think two sims would be good together. At the first edition of camp, Finn and Esme got together that way even though I would never have thought of them as a couple before that summer. Once two sims BOTH have the wish to kiss one another, I do help them out. In my experience, autonomous kisses between teens who are not yet romantically involved are quite rare, so I will help them there, but only if BOTH parties have the wish to do so. Other than that, they’re on their own…  So when Lison went up to Silas I just watched. They ended up just chatting though.***

I don’t know if Elliott was jealous because Lison had talked to Silas, or if something else was going on, but suddenly this happened:

trouble in paradiseHe was “berating her ignorance”. She didn’t like it.

Logan looked up Kyra to do the cool kids greet. It’s not exactly romance, but at least he was paying attention to her…

Screenshot-47

And Lison and Elliott continued their discussion inside…

Screenshot-43

Rain fell that night, so the teens spent the night indoors and then were told to go to their cabins for the night. First brush your teeth though! Kyra and Silas were again having a chat. It looks like these two will be very good friends.

Screenshot-57

While her best friend Holly stayed behind in the bathroom to gossip with Molly, Kyra made a new friend of her own.

new friend

And of course summercamp isn’t summercamp without a good PILLOWFIGHT!

Screenshot-62

 

The next morning Kylie woke up early to make breakfast.

Screenshot-64

Benjamin was up early too. The fish tend to bite more in the mornings, you know!

Screenshot-66

After breakfast Logan and Kyra had kitchen duty. Privacy for these two! Guess what they did!Screenshot-68

They just cleaned. Exciting stuff!

Luckily the rain had disappeared and it was in fact a very warm day. Since most kids (and Don) wanted to go to the Summerfestival, that’s where they went!

Screenshot-71

Once there, Khalid and Logan had a good chat (in a barn?). It seems that, despite their rocky start, these two are actually starting to get along.

Screenshot-79

Benjamin and Molly tried out the rollerskating rink. Not entirely successfully…

Lison and Kyra had some ice.

Screenshot-85

Soon it got busier on the rollerskating rink.

Screenshot-90

Some skaters clearly were more talented than others…

And then there was Don, who actually is the biggest kid of all, because he, autonomously, went to get his face painted.

Screenshot-96

Molly and Holly decided to have a waterballoon fight. These two were really starting to become inseparable!

Screenshot-98

But Molly did take a break to “enthuse about dogs” to Logan. Score! There’s nothing Logan loves more than dogs, so he obviously thought Molly was pretty cool after this.

Screenshot-102

In the midst of all this, were Kyra and her new friend Silas. Slowdancing. Kyra was really starting to like this new boy who was being so charming towards her. Was Logan getting some competition?

Screenshot-100

Holly decided if she wanted to “kiss a cute boy” like she wrote on her picture, action needed to be taken. And she already picked out who the boy had to be. He was charming, sexy and 16! So she decided to try a little flirting on Khalid.

Holly was no Edyta, that much was sure, but Khalid had come for distraction and distraction she was. Blonde distraction. So he didn’t hesitate to flirt back.

Screenshot-105

When the day drew to an end the kids decided to have a big waterballoon fight together. Well, with the exception of Molly and Ben who were entering in an eating contest (blergh) and Elliott who was still making twirls on the rollerskating rink.

Screenshot-107

It had been a good and eventful first day and a lot was still to come! Read about that in…

May 05: Changes (Part 2)

Go back to…
part 1

New Home

Isa couldn’t wait to see what her parents had made of the house and ran ahead as soon as the house came into view.

Screenshot-229

She was obviously happy to see her dad too, but she was mostly looking forward to seeing her new bedroom.

Screenshot-232

She soon got to see it, together with Ethan, because the kids would obviously have to share a room.
new roomI’m not sure what she thinks of it really, but I’m just going to assume she liked it.

Liam was also happy to see his dad again.

Screenshot-239

And Liam too got to check out his bedroom.

Screenshot-243

While Grace had picked Ethan up from Julliet‘s toyshop, Naomi had made other arrangements. Since Donna was curious to see the house too, she had told Naomi and Colin she would bring Isla and Prince by later that afternoon.

However, as Donna was getting ready to leave, she suddenly saw Prince had FLEAS! Thinking he must’ve gotten them from Pebbles, she couldn’t bring him back to her son and daughter-in-law’s new home all covered in fleas! So, she gave Prince a bath first. Thankfully he didn’t put up a fight.

Screenshot-191

And so, an hour later than planned, Donna arrived with Isla and Prince.

Screenshot-244

Colin was happy to see his daughter again.

Screenshot-247

As was Naomi.

Screenshot-250

And Liam was just pleased to have Prince back, even though he had seen him that morning…

Screenshot-252

Colin asked his mother if she wanted to stay for dinner, and Donna happily agreed.
Naomi chatted with her mother-in-law, while Colin made salad.

Screenshot-255

First dinner in the new house!

Screenshot-259

After dinner, Liam had to start getting ready for bed. (Isla was already sleeping)

Screenshot-261

Meanwhile, Colin and Naomi told Donna all about their busy moving day. They were happy tomorrow would be a saturday!

Screenshot-265

After Donna had left, Naomi read her son a bedtime story. Hopefully he would sleep well in his new bed.Screenshot-267

When both kids were asleep, Colin and Naomi finally had a moment to themselves.

Screenshot-268

Across the field, Isa was drifting off to dreamland as well. Finally, all the residents of The Greenery were home.bedtime story

First Morning

The next morning, the Anderson family had their first breakfast together in their new home. Isa had slept well, and Ethan was still asleep! It must be the peace and quiet there…

Screenshot-273

The Mason family also had their first breakfast and Liam was already thinking of playing on the field with Isa later.

Screenshot-280

Morgan was up too. Very alert of every little out-of-the-ordinary feeling in her body, although she knew it was still too soon to tell. At least she too slept well in her new home.

goodmorning

As soon as he was dressed and ready, Liam did go over to Isa’s . Both kids were happy to find out their classmates, the Knight triplets, were visiting the eco supermarket with their parents this saturday morning and were obviously very curious to see where their friends were living.

Screenshot-282

Liam and Isa showed them around. They visited the cows and The Field.

Screenshot-283

And ended up playing here together for most of the day.tag

If you, like the Knight triplets, are also curious about The Greenery, you can now tour it here. From there on out you can also visit the houses where these families now live and see what they made of it, with lots of stuff and little room! The houses can also be visited through their personal pages.

Schoolpictures

A few weeks later, it was schoolpicture time at The Beehive! The pictures in the hallways needed to be changed again.
Gareth took his job very seriously as per usual.
The kids had their pictures taken in their own classrooms, the teens had their pictures taken in the cafeteria in front of the clock wall.

Screenshot-296And here are the results.

Have you met my dog?

There was a big change for Riley too! Although, this change actually already happened in February, but hey.
In February, Riley’s aunt Abigail went to Sandy Valley for “Le Bal Masqué“. She didn’t pick up any gorgeous bachelors, but while she was in Sandy Valley, she did find out the Desfranges family had puppies up for adoption. Knowing how much her nephew had been wanting a pet, she decided to bring him a puppy. Her sister was less pleased, but couldn’t say no when she saw how happy Riley was.
And so, little, hyperactive Trognon was added to the Chapman family. But since Riley couldn’t pronounce his name, he changed it to PomPom.
These two are having a blast together!

have you met my dog

Riley isn’t the only one in the family in love with Pom though. The little one already knows how to use his cuteness to his advantage with the big boss too.

Put on your saddest puppy face…

….aaaand SUCCESS!

And then there’s a fun squeaky chew bone for you too!

It’s a good life…

Wildlife Education

Earlier this spring, some changes had been made to Honeycomb Valley’s Central Park as part of mayor Newman‘s project “Greenify Honeycomb Valley”. One of the things that had been added was a Wildlife Education Center where teachers or other educational professionals could come and bring children to teach them all about wildlife in and around parks.
Naomi, being all about nature, was the first one to bring her class to the park for a lesson during the last week of May.

Screenshot-338

First, the kids sat down on the benches under the tree where Naomi explained what they would be doing today.

Screenshot-339

The kids were told to go look for a creature in pairs. It could be a bug, it could be a rodent. If possible, they were allowed to catch it (under supervision) and take it inside where they would study it. At the end of the afternoon, all creatures would be released back into the park.

Nathan and Riley immediately started crawling under bushes…

Screenshot-340

…while Ruth and Nick discussed a strategy first.

Screenshot-343

In the end, only Nathan and Riley had found a ladybird, but fortunately a chipmunk and an iguana were already available for study in the wildlife center.

After studying the animals for a while and taking notes, miss Naomi called her class together to tell them about ants.
The kids were fascinated to see the work the ants did underground.

Screenshot-356

After they had learnt about ants, they were left to their own devices for a while.
Apparently a sleeping chipmunk was very funny to Ruth and Nick…

Screenshot-358

The Moment of Truth

Morgan had been good. She had waited the full two weeks before taking a pregnancy test, but today the moment of truth was finally upon her…

positive

POSITIVE! She was actually pregnant! After only one try! Wow! She could hardly believe it!
Of course she immediately called David and Bradley and then her brother.

Screenshot-336

Congratulations Morgan! I’m sure you’ll be a great mum!
And with Morgan’s happy news, May had come to an end. The busy month of June was around the corner. Why June was so busy? That’s a story for another time.

***Note: I have quite a strict policy about using poses for my sims. I don’t mind posing them for things for which I personally would pose too. And by that I mean, having their picture taken. When you have your picture taken, you strike a pose. Most of the time anyway. So, I have no problem putting my sims in poses for schoolpictures, weddingpictures, portraits etc. However, when I play, I play. I don’t play to write a story, I write a story about what I played. Therefore I don’t like posing my sims for storytelling purposes. I once posed a childbirth that way and ended up not using the pictures, because I felt it “didn’t actually happen that way”. I was moving “statues”. It felt wrong. And so, my no-poses-unless-they’re-having-their-picture-taken policy was born.
But as you can see, this time I’ve made an exception. The pregnancy test poses were so PERFECT for Morgan, as there is no action or animation in game which quite shows the tension and excitement that come with taking a pregnancy test when you really want to be pregnant. These poses did show that and therefore I’ve made an exception to my rule. Just this once. For Morgan.***

May 05: Changes (Part 1)

May arrived in Honeycomb Valley and with it came changes. Some big, some small, but things certainly changed for many of Honeycomb Valley’s residents…

Moving Day

In April, The Anderson family signed the contracts which made them the owners of a small little house in The Greenery, Honeycomb Valley’s new, eco friendly district. Now that May had come around, moving day was upon them. The kids were staying at aunt Julliet‘s house until tomorrow, so Benjamin and Grace could really get some work done.

The movers arrived early that morning and soon everything was loaded in the truck and they were ready to go.

Screenshot-29

Ben and Grace weren’t the only ones moving into their Greenery house today. For Colin and Naomi it was moving day as well. And wow, did they have a lot of stuff!Screenshot-25

They knew a lot of it would have to be sold or given away once they were done. That’s what you get when you move from a big house into a small one…

Screenshot-37

***Note: For both the Anderson and the Mason family, I had moved all of their furniture from their old homes into the family inventory and challenged myself to decorate their new homes using their old furniture and only buying the minimum amount of new stuff (some shelves here and there, mostly). It was a challenge, especially with these houses being so tiny, but I had a blast decorating this way! ***

Soon, both families were well on their way getting their new homes organised.

Screenshot-42

Around noon, the hard workers decided to have a picnic together on the field.

picnic

While discussing their progress, Naomi and Grace realised they both needed some stuff. Naomi needed to get a bed for Liam (Liam used to have a double bed in the old house and there was no way that would fit), Grace needed a rug for the living room and they both needed some shelves. So, the girls decided to go to Ikea together, while the men continued in the homes.

After a few hours, the ladies came back with a van they rented at Ikea.

Screenshot-56

Grace stopped by Naomi and Colin’s house to see how they were getting on.
There was still a lot to do…

Screenshot-58

But when evening fell, both families had made a lot of progress. Benjamin and Grace invited Colin and Naomi over to have some spaghetti.
Screenshot-59

It was delicious!

Screenshot-62

While their parents worked, Liam, Isla and cat Prince were staying with grandma Donna, who was loving having her grandkids over!

Screenshot-65

Liam loved it too. At least here at grandma’s he was allowed to have a jam sandwich for dinner!

Screenshot-68

And after dinner, he could have a bath for as long as he wanted!

Screenshot-71

He could even splash!bathtime

Meanwhile, Isla was already sound asleep.Screenshot-79

Isa and Ethan were also having fun with cousins Sadie and Esme (although I’m not sure what Esme and Isa are watching…)
Sadie is always playing with her cousins when she’s with them!Cousins staying over

Aunt Julliet was still at her toyshop, but the rest of the family had sushi for dinner!

Screenshot-87

Isa proved to be the perfect houseguest, because she did the washing up completely autonomously!

Screenshot-93

Esme took Ethan to bed. (In a very undecorated guestroom – the Stevens family is in the process of remodeling their home)

Screenshot-96

Then the girls of the family had a little dance together!

Screenshot-99

Goodmorning!

The sun rose early the following morning, it was clear summer was approaching. Before the new residents of The Greenery were up though, there was another guest on The Field…

Screenshot-103

If you thought we were missing a resident on moving day, you are right! Morgan had not been there the previous day because she had other business to attend to. And her house was all done already anyway. But this morning, Morgan arrived too.Screenshot-161

The previous day had been a rather important one for Morgan. Let’s have a little flashback…

Morgan’s Day

While Ben, Grace, Colin and Naomi were hard at work in their new houses, Morgan was at the hospital. Today was THE day. The day Dr. Harvey would, hopefully, help her get pregnant. Morgan was in the waiting room -much too early- waiting rather nervously for David and Bradley to arrive.

There was another woman waiting there as well, who started to speak to Morgan.

baby friends

“Do you have an appointment with Dr. Harvey as well?”
– “Yes, but don’t worry, I’m just very early, I guess your appointment is before mine”
“Oh good, haha, I was worried he might be running late and I need to go to work soon”
– “No no, I’m really just early! I was too nervous to wait any longer…”
“Haha, I know, all this being pregnant business is quite nervewracking, isn’t it?”
– “Oh, I’m not pregnant yet, but I hope to be after today… How far along are you, if you don’t mind me asking?”
“Just about 6 weeks, this is my first check up. My boyfriend should be here shortly, but he insisted on coming on his horse and now he obviously can’t find a place to leave him…* He’s quite young and naive… Is your umm… partner around too?”
– “No. Or actually, I don’t have a partner. I’m going to be a single mum. I did find two great men who are willing to help me with this and be part time dads though!  I found the love of my life when I was really young, but sadly, I lost him… Ever since then, things just haven’t been the same. And now I’m 35. Before you know it I’ll be 40! It was now or never, really…”
“Oh! I understand! BELIEVE me, I do.We’re not getting any younger, right! If I hadn’t met Luke, I would probably have done the same thing! I’m Susannah, by the way, but everyone calls me Susie.”
– “Nice to meet you Susie, I’m Morgan.”

Friendship established.

When Susie had left, it was Morgan’s turn, even though the boys weren’t there yet. Aaron discussed the procedure with her.

Screenshot-195

Thankfully, they soon arrived and Aaron also explained to the boys what David’s part in all this would be. (Although, that seems pretty straight forward if you ask me…)

Morgan and Bradley waited in the waiting room…

Screenshot-200

And then it was Morgan’s turn to go in…

Screenshot-202

After that, it was two weeks of waiting… Fingers crossed!

Back to The Greenery

So, that had been Morgan’s day. But now she too had arrived at her new house. By this time, her neighbours were already up too. Grace was already hanging the laundry out to dry.

Screenshot-190

That afternoon, both Naomi and Grace were happy they would get to see their kids again. Naomi arrived at school before the bell rang.

Screenshot-212

There he was! Hi Liam! Mummy missed you!mother-son reunion

Grace had picked up Ethan from Julliet’s shop first, so she was a bit late. Isa didn’t mind though, she played in the playhouse until her mum arrived.

Screenshot-224

But she too was happy to see her mum again!

Screenshot-228

Both Liam and Isa were very eager to see their new homes!

See what they think in…

*Luke actually DID go to the hospital on his horse. Because he was taking forever and I wanted him to get a move on, I decided to teleport him in. Little did I know that when you teleport a sim who’s on a horse, the horse is teleporting too… Result:

And this is on the second floor… Oops…
