Ahhh, May. The last month of Spring! And Spring is all about love, right? Selma had a secret to share with Amy, but it seems Amy keeps secrets of her own… The girls celebrated May with their high school friends at the Maypole Festival, which had its ups and downs…
There are lots of sims to follow this month, so let’s see what Bimlico got up to in SimMay!
With Mr. and Mrs. Stanton
Although it had taken Olivia quite some time convincing Ryan, he had taken a couple of days off work, so the newlyweds could really enjoy each other and their new titles as “mr. and mrs.”. (They couldn’t afford going on a honeymoon since Olivia wasn’t working and they were expecting the baby.)
Olivia was getting bigger
(The park has undergone some changes! See for yourself)
Olivia was so proud of her baby bump!
Olivia easily makes new friends!
Erica was really missing her son! Dylan had been babysitting Vincent during the wedding, and even though Erica was thrilled for her best friend, it had been a very emotional party for Erica. Of course she was happy for her friend, and now it seemed like Maria was falling in love too. But what about Erica? Would she ever fall in love again?
Nothing little a little pastry (from the Cookies Jar, right. across. the. street.) to cheer up a broken heart!
(Pssstt… it’s an awesome build by the awesome Jenba!)
He even wanted to console her, but, as we all know, that is the W-O-R-S-T thing you can ever do to a sad sim!!!!!!!
After a pillow fight and some TV, I thought they’d have some dinner together, but Dylan said he had to go It wasn’t his work hours!
Turns out it was boat hours
(Do we blame him? The rain was gone and the sky was gorgeous!)
A girl’s gotta eat! Erica went next door to her parents’ place
And of course she burst into tears when she saw her mom! Rachel‘s many years of experience with the ups and downs of Erica‘s mood must mean that she knows not to console her daughter, but to cheer her up instead
Alan also came to comfort his daughter with a big hug! But uhm… yeah, guess what he also did?
They changed the subject away from weddings, and Rachel made dinner for everyone. Well, not for Alan, who might be on a diet He didn’t get a plate, but he was staring at the food and looked pretty bummed out
Blake often finds her parents looking completely surprised that she exists. Alicia and Ron were getting ready to leave for a mini-tour with their band (that obviously means having a few drinks), and when they noticed Blake standing there, they realised that they hadn’t arranged for anyone to look after her while they were gone!
Who lives right across the street?
But looking after Blake isn’t the world’s worst job. Most of the time, she minds herself.
When Anthony came home, Maria complained to him about having to look after Blake for the next couple of days. She would be playing at the Maypole Festival, and couldn’t really have Blake with her on the stage!! Anthony assured her it would be alright.
Blake seems to think he’s the best too
But, anyway, Malcolm was being such a douche!! I was so sweet to him, I told him that funny story, you know, but he was just being super mean
I was really surprised to see him like that and I almost cried! But I wasn’t going to let him ruin my day, so I told him to outside and rake stuff (okay, I had help telling him that), and then I bought a cookie. That cheered me up. I remember I closed my eyes for a moment, to listen to the music, but when I opened them again, my cookie was totally gone! I know what you’re thinking: Someone stole it! Yes, that is exactly what happened!
So I went looking for it, and found this guy – his name’s Ryder – outside. He had totally stolen my cookie, so I told him off. But then he told me “Cookies should always be shared!”, and how cute was that?! He was totally cute!!!!
He introduced himself, and he was SO funny! And cute! … but I did tell him “Don’t ever steal my food again!”
Then I beat his sorry ass at Ping-Pong ( ) and we just laughed and flirted It was perfect!
Then he asked me to continue our date at the cinema – OMG, I hadn’t even realised we were on a date! I said yes, of course, and we drove there in HIS CAR!!!! When the film ended, he drove me home, like a real gentleman, and then… I just went ahead and kissed him!!! My first kiss!!!
I won’t lie, it was pretty emotional
Selma’s day was so weird and not at all what I thought. The weather was so strange – Spring SNOW?! – and Malcolm was being awful. I never imagined that Selma and Ryder would hit it off, but they totally did! When Selma beat him at ping-pong, I thought he’d throw a tantrum (he’s hot-headed), but he was just so nice to her
