December is a month for celebrations! This month we will see what the Bimlico teens get up to at their Christmas party, we’ll go on a romantic date and celebrate Christmas with Erica and Vincent.
The high school Christmas party
To celebrate the end of the year, a formal party was thrown for all the high school teens. Amar and his brother William had volunteered for the party planning committee. Amar had rented the party room at city hall (it was as formal party) and was in charge of food, William of music and drinks. Thankfully, Amar had asked his daughters, Daria and Molly, to be in charge of the decoration, and he was so proud of their collaboration.
I was curious to see what would happen if I let my teens show me what they want and who they like, so for this party, I enabled romance for each of them using StoryProgression. It was so much fun (although I almost forgot to turn it back off again when the party ended!!)
Amar was admiring the buffet. It should have something for everyone! He even made vegetarian spaghetti dish
Seth was one of the first teens to arrive, and he instantly regretted not having come together with his brother. Amar forgot for a moment that the adults were supposed to just hang out in the background (where was William, by the way?)
Yep, that’s as formal as Daria gets! She swears she’ll never wear a dress (We’ll see…)
More teens joined the dancefloor
William had arrived, and the adults found their place: sitting quietly in the background. (and I was surprised to see them actually stay there for quite some time!!)
Just like his brother, Silas didn’t know how to act around Ofelia! That girl has some magic powers! When he sat down, no one spoke. When he got up, Ofelia and Miles started talking…. Urgh! Why couldn’t he just talk to her?
Amy preferred working out to dancing
But look at the smile on Ofelia’s face when Miles finally got up and started talking to her! He showed her a cool video that made her laugh! (although she didn’t once look at the screen – all eyes were on Miles )
Uh-oh, what is that look on Etienne’s face?
He suddenly felt very awkward, and chose to grab one of the drinks just served.. and sit down right next to Miles and Ofelia!
Amy noticed that Ofi seemed extraordinarily happy, and the girls giggled together (I wonder what they were giggling about? )
Other teens had chosen a different kind of fun……
(I think Selma feels way too old for a party like this.)
Miles: Are you sure??
Seth: We kissed this summer, okay!? It was no big deal, we have barely spoken since!
Miles: Okay then. Because I think I really like her!
While dancing, Etienne (third part of this best friends trio) was looking at them were concerned! Come on, dude! Be nice!!
I think Etienne might be a superhero, because after his stare, Silas and Daria were back to their old selfs. (I’m guessing they came to the conclusion that Etienne’s favourite superhero is definitely the least cool! )
Seth had gone to find his brother. He kind of knew that Silas had had a crush on Ofelia too, so he hadn’t told him about kissing her, but now that he had blurted it out to Miles, he felt like he had to tell him. Silas took the news pretty well.
Silas: I used to like her too, bro! But I’m so awkward around her – it’s pretty exhausting!
Seth: I KNOW! Let’s forget about her, huh, and focus on other stuff… Do you have any ideas for how to save up for a scooter?
Ofelia had chosen to take a moment off in the corner…. eehmm, right beneath the mistletoe!! (or maybe she was wishing for something specific to happen?)
… but only to show her a super gross video
Don’t you just love this game?
He went straight for the kiss!
Those two were so caught up in each other! They talked, flirted and also argued a little
Daria had been glancing at Billy most of the night. They hadn’t really talked much yet… She usually never found it difficult to talk to boys (all her friends are boys!), but she felt differently around Billy. (Daria got the wish to have her first kiss with him whenever I switched to her! )
She finally went up to him, and they started chatting away!
The flirty couples were slow dancing
Although Seth had just said that he didn’t care about her anymore, he was stunned to watch the first girl he ever kissed make out with someone else
He started yelling at Ofi, but she was pretty cool about it (she’s very “zen”, you know )
Ofelia: Things have been so awkward between us since this summer. Let’s go back to talking – let’s just be friends, okay?
During this conversation, Miles gave them privacy… or….
Meanwhile, Silas was making puppy eyes at Selma Not going to happen, dude!
And that was the end of the teen’s formal party!
