Adam and Poppy’s date
They quickly made up though, and Adam asked Poppy to spend the day with him. On a date.
It was in the morning, and Adam wanted to take Poppy out for breakfast at the Lemon-Lite Bistro. It was the fanciest place he could afford!
But first, they visited Andrew’s Flowers. Adam was really being romantic today!
They then had a lovely breakfast (Poppy chose a slice of pizza… ) and a flirt at the Bistro next door.
It was so romantic, and they had an amazing view of the sea and the light house!
Adam was feeling a little shy. He took Poppy’s hand: I’ve really enjoyed being with you these past months, and… I’d really like it if you were my girlfriend!
Poppy of course said yes!
Christmas at Erica’s
(In Denmark, we celebrate Christmas on the 24th with dinner and presents, so my Sims do the same)
Both Vincent, Erica and Shannon were surprised to see Oscar Fox arrive too, even though he wasn’t invited (he brought a nice platter of falafels, nevertheless!)… He even picked up Vincent
Oscar: Uhm, yeah, so… My wife – Madeleine Fox-Brown, city council member – wants to make sure that everyone in Bimlico has a great Christmas. Single mothers are her top priority. She will fight for YOUR rights, and… She sends falafels! Vote for Madeleine Fox-Brown – she will never let you down!
Erica: Ohhh, wow! Thank you so much! Give your wife my best, we went to university together
When Oscar had left, Erica and Shannon had a laugh and were finally able to hug each other hello.
The guests were adding presents to the growing pile in the living room. How exciting! One guest was still missing, though!
Erica paced restlessly between one window and the other. Suddenly, the doorbell rang – OMG!! Both Erica and I were surprised to find Henry Barton and Jenny Woods outside… trick or treating (This game… )
(I’m pretty sure Jenny is giggling “OMG, she fell for it!!!” )
Her much awaited guest finally arrived: Vincent’s dad, Gabriel. (I swear, Gabriel is always late!!)
Vincent had gotten an early present: a dinosaur!
Gabriel: So sorry I’m late, babe! You look great!
All the guest were now there, but the doorbell rang again.
Ofelia: Trick or treat!
Erica: Get lost!
Shannon thought she had time for a quick workout before dinner
Gabriel had brought lasagna
Vincent entertained himself. He only had eyes for the dino!
After dinner, it was time for dancing! (Shannon decided to dig into the pie )
They all danced and ate pie, but just before Vincent’s bedtime, Erica called everyone to open their presents! They all enjoyed their presents – Erica got the coals… but also a bike!
Then it was Vincent’s bedtime, and Erica tucked him in. While she was tidying up, Gabriel came into the room as well, and Erica’s heart skipped a beat! She was sure he had come to be alone with her for a moment, and tell her that only true love could have created that little amazing boy in the crib. Erica held her breath, and waited for him to speak, but he didn’t… He’d come to read a book Erica being Erica, she started tidying up a bit
They went back to the living room, where Erica poured some drinks, and Shannon and Naima started dancing.
Erica had one extra present for Gabriel (December is also his birthday): a really nice bottle of wine that she’d bought at the fancy new Wine Bar downtown (right next to Gabriel’s house).
Gabriel is so rude! He started complaining and wasn’t very appreciative of the present, but Erica is extremely tolerant (perhaps especially when it comes to Gabriel). She just did everything she could to make him smile!
Later, they had a moment in the kitchen, where Gabriel was actually being annoying again, but Erica told him a secret: “I love you!” ( That broke my heart!!!)
It was getting late, so they all had a last drink together before saying goodbye.
Shannon and Naima left, but Gabriel stayed behind. While he was using the bathroom, Erica had one more drink, and then went to her bedroom to wait for him.
She waited and waited… And finally fell asleep….. Just like Gabriel had.
The following morning, Erica woke up early as usual (perks of having a toddler). For a moment, she got really anxious that she’d said something wrong to Gabriel that had made him angry with her!
But seeing Vincent always makes her happy!
But yay!! Gabriel hadn’t gone home angry at her! He was sleeping on the couch. Aaaw, what a gentleman!
But while Erica went to get dressed, Vincent woke up Gabriel, who got up and went straight home without saying goodbye to neither Vincent nor Erica
Erica panicked, and again thought she’d done something wrong: But… he wasn’t even awake!
She was sure that Gabriel probably had somewhere to be, and was in a hurry, so that’s why he just left like that
Vincent cheered her up again
Poor Erica will probably always be hung up on Gabriel. He is the father of her son, after all.They were engaged, by the way, he never showed up for their wedding!
In other news:
After the high school dance, I also checked in on Ofelia to see if she would get wishes towards Miles. She didn’t, all this girl wants is to visit Shang Simla But I did “walk in” on her watching some verrrrry romantic looking TV

What did you expect??
