(In Sims 2, Erica was going to be a ballet dancer. She was really good at it, but she decided to get a “real” job to support herself and Vincent. Now, she teaches ballet to Bimlico residents instead )
It was still early. None of her pupils had showed up yet.
(Unless Milo was there for a lesson… Or maybe he had been to the yoga studio upstairs?)
Erica started warming up, and slowly the pupils started to arrive…
… Here’s Jenny’s bike. It’s looking pretty cool next to Erica’s plain old one
She didn’t look too happy about being there, though! (Perhaps her mother had made her go?)
Erica looked out the window for her last pupil, but what she saw was very… unexpected!
Erica seemed to forget about her class when Dylan walked past the window (Doesn’t it look like she’s pretending to do ballet only so she can look out at Dylan??)
The girls all had a great class! Even Remy looked like she was having fun
Uhhmm…. for most of the class, anyway!
Erica got a call: The babysitter had an emergency, and had to go, so Vincent would have to be dropped off at the Dance Studio!
(Of course the truth is that some glitch reset both Erica and Vincent, so I teleported them both back to the Dance Studio)
It was fine though, because the Dance Studio luckily had a toddler swing so Vincent could entertain himself….
(Don’t get any good ideas now, Ben!)
Erica ended the class and complimented all the girls for doing so incredibly well. They were all ballerinas to her!
Ben really didn’t seem like he was ready to let Vincent go And Vincent clearly wasn’t done playing with Ben.
But Erica’s day was nowhere near over yet. Actually, today was her 29th birthday!!
Her best friends Olivia and Maria had arranged a party at the Bakery-Bar. All Erica had to do was find a babysitter for Vincent, and who better than Vincent’s dad? Erica had asked Gabriel to meet her at Tito’s café next to the Dance Studio so they could celebrate her birthday, and so he could easily take Vincent with him after. They had a lovely meal together!
But once they finished eating, it got a little awkward. No one said anything….
Erica: So… I better get home and get ready for my awesome party tonight!
Gabriel: GREAT! I mean… You have fun, see you tomorrow, I’ll drop Vince by around noon. Bye!!
And with that, Erica went home. Gabriel went upstairs…..
With Gabriel and Marly
These two! Their chemistry is so strange, but it seems to work for them
He had kind of forgotten that Vincent was there too, and he was complaining quite a bit… Gabriel had a cure for that.
( did you think Marly was going to pick up Vince? No-uh, she was headed straight for the computer! )
He has it pretty easy being a babysitter, right??
When he came back downstairs, they had a drink. Gabriel put some music on so the awkward silences wouldn’t be too obvious…
(I hope he can hear it if Vincent calls!)
They danced a little, which seemed to definitely lighten the mood!
Well, with these two, you never know
More flirting, laughing, and arguing followed, but generally, it was going pretty well!
…. really well!
