Sims Saturday: All You Need
Ever wonder what the Sims will do left to their own devices? See the story of a young couple unfold right before your eyes.

Welcome to Sims Saturday, a Sims soap opera by VelvetDove.

You know how people always mention how they need to of gone and done things when they were younger, or else they regret it? I don't know I've heard many people say how they wished they would of gone and done this or thing, or I wish I would of gone to prom. Whatever it may be. So, I figured, okay, fine, I'll go to prom. Toby was going also so at least we could share on limo expenses. If you're going to do it, do it right, correct? I didn't expect it to be anything special or exciting. It was just another school dance, just another more expensive school dance. I didn't have a date or anything, I just went with a group of friends, same with Toby. It ended up being one of the most exciting experiences ever. I was hanging out with a friend and we got to talking and did a little true confession sort of thing, only to find out that they actually liked me. I mean really liked me. I had never thought about them in that way before, ever, but once it was brought up, I figured, why not try for it? It ended up being a really good night. Even Toby came home with someone he liked.

So I invited Brandon over to my house. We sat and talked for hours and just hung out. When it was time for him to go home, I walked him to the curb and he leaned over and kissed me. Can you believe it? Me, the human toad? I mean I never expected anyone to ever kiss me, like alone a boy, let alone him. I felt tingly all over. His eyes got wide, as he looked at me and gently touched my face. I was no longer a toad!

That was all I needed really? I just needed to be kissed by someone? Or did it have to be someone I liked? How was I going to explain my recovery to my family? I wasn't ready to tell them that I had someone I really liked. I surely wasn't ready to tell anyone it was a boy I was interested in. But as weird as it was, Toby had also met a boy who he was dating, so maybe it wouldn't be that bad if we both told our parents together? I'm sure Carina would be okay with Toby being gay, but possibly not so much with my being gay. But I have to say it was really nice having him right there to back up whatever story I had about how my toadiness disappeared.

My life was certainly going to start changing, that was for sure. I was graduating and making my way into my own life. Granted, once I turned 18 and graduated high school Brandon didn't want much to do with me. I'm not sure if it had more to do with my going out and getting a job or him still being in high school, or even his parents not wanting us to spend time together. I'm not sure he ever told them that we were actually a couple. I don't know. It happened quick. It was like prom we were in love and a month later I was graduating and we were barely friends.

I have so many things I have to get going and working on. I'm actually really excited for the first time in my life. I went and got a job at the police station. I know, I know, I'm into DNA and it's effects on things, I should of went to the science center and asked for a job. But, my father owns the place, do you actually think I will be able to study what I want and to see the effects of genetics on a persons ability to be evil or a criminal? Not when I'm researching to make sure I don't turn out crazy like my father. Ever since Aunt Tracy died, we haven't had that "in" in the police department to keep Father out of trouble. He might be more encouraging that I went into law enforcement instead of whatever he had planned for me.

It just seems like everyone's growing quickly and every is changing. Father didn't even go to my graduation ceremony. Hank and Ashley are already in school. I'm not really sure why or what may of happened, but Hank was sent off the a boarding school. I don't know if Carina and Father decided regular schooling wasn't good enough for him, since Toby and I did not follow along in the plans that Father had in mind for us. It was just weird, almost like it was over night. We celebrated their birthdays and the next day Ashley was signed up for school and Hank was shipped off to a better school. I'm not sure if I should be jealous of him, like Father has more faith in Hank, so wanted to give him the best, or if he's disowning Hank like he had with Simone. Once she was gone, he never seemed to think about her again. Is Hank going to be the same way? I don't know but I will write him every day just to make sure he knows someone from home is still thinking about him. That is all that really will get you through any tough situation... just knowing that someone cares about you and is there for you.
