The Silver’s and the Duncan’s made it to Lucky Palm at the beginning of Summer.
Kat had a serious talk with first Leonidas about her and Madison’s relationship. Leonidas was very happy for his mother and told her as much. Catherine and Zeke, too, were happy that Kat and Madison found love and happiness with each other.
Kat knew instantly what to do. She proposed to Madison and then the two had a quick wedding ceremony before settling into their own house in Lucky Palm.
Leonidas made his way to the stadium and got a job. It wasn’t his dream job and he was far from an athlete as this moment, but he had no problems earning his way to the position. His mom instilled a deep sense of hard work into him since he was young.
Speaking of proposals… Ty proposed to Catherine, they got pregnant and moved into their own house in town, too.
Now it was just Leonidas and Cheri in the house. Cheri made Leonidas favorite meal, Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches, for dinner on their first night in their own home.
Exhausted from the day’s events, they feel in bed, exhausted.
Loki visited while they slept.
The next day before work, Leonidas wanted a tattoo… a way to memorialize all he had done… relocate to a new town, get a new job, move in with Cheri. His life was headed exactly where he wanted to be and he couldn’t be happier.
*I’m not a huge fan of Sims 3 tattoos. I wish we had more control over their placement, like we could move it around. This is what we settled on.*
Cheri was a candy striper at the local hospital. She really didn’t want a career, just wanted a way to get out of the house for a few hours. She was off work today, so she lounged in the pool for a while.
Later that evening, before Leonidas got home from work, she took her sister out on the town since she had just aged to a teen the night before.
They made their way to the local pool and spent a few hours catching up before they had dinner at the Diner.
Leonidas came home to an empty house. He had a quick meal of leftover peanut butter and jelly sandwich before he left out for the gym.
He needed a couple skill points to level up in his career, so he tried not to let him bother him that Cheri wasn’t home when he got home from work.
He’d have loved to spend the evening with her, but figured this was just as important, so he tried putting her absence from his mind.
*While I was busy getting Leonidas set up with working out, I went back to check on Cheri and she had ditched her sister and was in some random sims house and flirting with this teen (she’s a YA) *
Leonidas made it home and Cheri still wasn’t there. He climbed in bed, a bit sad.
The next morning, he woke a few hours before work, had a quick breakfast and went for a jog, heading to work a bit early. Cheri slept in, having not made it to bed until 3am.
Once awake, Cheri left the house as soon as needs were met and headed to the local pool to lounge in the sun.
A pregnant Catherine was soaking up some rays, too.
Kat showed up and the girls relaxed in the hot tub together.
The girls grouped up to spend the day together. After the pool, they headed to Mick’s to do some singing.
Shot a little pool…
After dinner at the diner, Kat had to go but Cheri ran into her mom there.
Who had no problem telling her she was not behaving appropriately for a woman in a fresh relationship trying to make things last.
Cheri left her complaining mother behind and went to Varg’s Tavern for a quick drink.
Leonidas decided against more peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and went to the diner himself for dinner, just missing Cheri.
While there, a pregnant woman went in labor.
He quickly rushed her to the hospital, thinking if he’d ever be lucky enough to have a little one on the way. With the way things were going with Cheri, they’d never be in the same house to get her pregnant.
When he got home at 1am, Cheri still wasn’t there. He sent her a quick text to ask where she was and when she’d be home. He went to bed, alone yet again… something that was becoming the norm.
Cheri was not real pleased getting the text. Why did he think he had to account for every minute of her day?!
Cheri stayed out until well after 3am. When she came home she soaked in a bubble bath before heading to bed as the sun was coming up. She had to work, but not until 4pm, so she could easily sleep in.
Leonidas had an opportunity at City Hall, but he couldn’t stop thinking of babies. He really wanted a family of his own. Children running in the yard or playing in the pool. He’d help them with their homework and tuck them in at night.
When he got home, Cheri was awake. Once he questioned her about where she was last night, things got a bit heated.
She was not happy having to account for every moment of her life. She had no responsibilities to tie her down.
But the makeup woohoo was pretty exciting. Things aren’t resolved, but they are sure put off for now.
Leonidas had to rush out the door to not miss the car pool. Cheri felt a pang of guilt having not been home with him for days, so spent what time she had before work straightening up the house a bit.
After work, Cheri meet her first celebrity. She liked the thought of hanging with celebrities. How exciting of lives do they lead! As soon as they become well enough acquainted, she suggested the group up and go out for a drink.
Leonidas returned home to an empty house. His heart broke each time his steps echoed in the empty silence.
He didn’t feel like running the risk of running into anyone he knew, he was far too depressed to make conversation right now, so he had leftovers for dinner again. He has really hoped that Cheri was making a change.
Then headed to the gym to workout. *He had bulked up really badly. I took him into CAS and changed it. I hate bulky sims.*
Cheri and her new friend (forgot his name, oops) had drinks at the Grind.
Kat and Madison was there (she’s still so pretty!)
Good to see the girls so happy together.
Cheri danced the night away without a care in the world. She now has stars in her eyes, and is only interested in rising her own celebrity status.
3am… are you freaking kidding me? The Silver’s have the worst luck of all my families. I rarely see a burglar and the Silver have now been robbed 3 times. I didn’t buy Leonidas a alarm, because I figured it was not likely to happen and I’d save that money until later.
That was my mistake. The burglar is Evan Fuller and he is now on our list….
Stole our laptop!
Then stole the dresser out of the nursery!
Good grief, Evan is robbing us blind! He even stole an outdoor bench!
I honestly thought with no one home he’d clean us out complete. Leonidas was working out, trying to get some aggression out and Cheri was living it up with her new celebrity friend… neither are even aware that there was a robbery yet.
I have a feeling the shit is gonna fly once Leonidas gets home.
