Let’s spend some time with Blake
This is how I found her: Soaking wet with a very uninterested father
Well, Blake doesn’t complain. She can take care of herself. Just like her parents expect her to.
Big girls walk themselves to school.
While Blake was at school, I checked in on her parents. Ron is starting to worry me… Drinking alone… in the bathroom??
Wow! Alicia actually made food But she didn’t look very happy about it. Ron continued drinking.
Ughhh, Ron, so gross!!!
I guess all that food made him thirsty (???). He had even more drinks, and Alicia sat down and continued being grouchy.
Alicia received a call from her brother, but hung up quickly, because it was bedtime (it was noon).
In the afternoon when school ended, Blake stuck around and played on the playground for a bit. She wanted to wait for her best friend, Remy, to finish her after school activity (Blake doesn’t attend any. Her parents can’t afford it).
Hey look! Here’s Jenny! (She definitely picked out that umbrella herself)
Blake loves to go home with Remy after school. She has her own room! It’s beautiful and she has lots of toys!!
The girls were having fun, but Remy’s dad, Mike, came in and ruined the fun.
Mike: Don’t mind me, girls, I just need to tidy up a bit.
Remy: Then hurry up and get outta here, father slave.
Blake was starting to feel hungry, so she went downstairs. She knew Mike would notice right away.
Mike: OMG, are you hungry? Should I just go and make dinner now?
Blake: Sure… That would be great. *whispers* Father Slave
Look at these two princesses!
Don’t feel bad for Mike, though. He loves to wait on his little princess and her friends!
Remy’s mom, Lisa, had come home in time for dinner as well. The all ate together. The whole family. That almost never happens at Blake’s house.
After dinner, Remy asked Blake if she wanted to spend the night, and Blake said yes right away!!
Noir did not agree with this plan Remy spent some time brushing her so not to make her too jealous.
Aawww, Blake went and asked Mike to read her a bedtime story. She never gets those at home.
Of course Mike said yes! ( I think he may have chosen that book, though!)
Backstage note: Remy’s bed was so borked as you can tell in the last picture. The animation of the bedding was all screwed up. I replaced the bed, but was sad to learn that Remy and Blake wouldn’t share it That’s kind of the point of Remy’s huge bed! Does anyone know of a mod that will allow children to share a bed?
With Shannon and Naima
Naima had stayed up late so she welcome home her sweetheart!
Naima: But honey, it was SO unfair! I didn’t really miss that many classes!
Shannon was shocked, and started lecturing Naima about the importance of her finishing her education, so she could get a job to help pay their bills. But Naima doesn’t care about bills. They’re just pieces of paper!
Naima: Honey, honey, yes, you’re right, but instead of studying, I spent my time very wisely, planning our gorgeous future – what, no, I didn’t apply for part-time jobs, haha, no wait here!
Naima ran into the downstairs bedroom: Okay, honey, I’m ready, come on in! Eeeep, she was so excited!
Shannon was completely dumbfounded. It had been a long bus ride back form Honeycomb Valley – could she still be asleep? Shannon woke up and starting yelling at Naima asking her when they had decided to have children and from where she got the money to buy all that stuff (The bank.. duhh!)
Naima’s feelings were hurt. She accused Shannon of being unflirty (Shannon is unflirty), and pointed out how much time she had spent redecorating the room, how she had carefully chosen the colour orange (coincidentally her favourite colour too ) so the room would be suitable for a child of either gender, which would actually save them money down the line, and, no, they weren’t going to have children right now, but some day soon, though, right?, because that’s what you do when you get married! Actually, Naima felt like all the future planning was up to her, and that Shannon wasn’t as invested in their future together as she was :nahh:
Shannon, who really doesn’t like confrontations, tried to apologise, but Naima wasn’t having any of it!
…But this is Naima, so as soon as Shannon walked away, Naima freaked out, and then followed her upstairs, where she looked deep into Shannon’s eyes, and gave her a kiss.
It always works
Matthew smiled at his daughter. Something about her told him that she wasn’t texting one of her girlfriends…
Ofelia is a girl who knows what she wants. She asked Miles to go up on the bridge (hey! Finally, it was Spring and LOVE was in the air!), where she made a funny face at him and then asked him to be her boyfriend
It was a yes, of course!
That was it as far as romance goes for Ofelia. She invited him home to play video games!
It seemed that Spring had finally hit Bimlico!
