Lately I have been feeling kind of lonely. I guess it’s just because I am seeing all my friends with their new boyfriends, planning weddings and having babies. I know I have Pooch and she is a handful and quite loving I think it’s time for me to try the dating scene. I thought I would find someone I had a lot in common with at the Art gallery so I found one and traveled there.
I did meet this handsome gentleman Antonio and we exchanged numbers. We playfully flirted a little bit but nothing serious.
I have been really working hard at losing all the weight I gained by eating all the fruitcake. I just can’t get enough fruit cake it’s my favourite thing! So now that pooch has grown up we go for jogs a lot and that has been really helping.
Of course I spend most of my time in my office painting.
I am thinking I really want a kitten too. I love Pooch she is a great pet but deep down I am a cat lover.
I kept on noticing this crazy tree in the park beside my house we jog past it everyday and it is so different from all the other trees. On this day I noticed that there was an opening like a door? So I went in.
I’ve never seen anything so beautiful! I’ve never fished before but the water looked so clean and clear and literally screamed to be fished in. So I gave it a try but I don’t think I am skilled enough to actually do anything here.
The next day Antonio asked me out on a date. He was so late too, I thought he’d never show up.
When he finally did show up he smelt horrible and I think had been drinking. He yelled at some kids playing nearby and when I asked him to stop he yelled at me. Then he passed out on a park bench. Literally the worst date I have ever been on.
I ran into the store to use the washroom and wipe the tears from my eyes. That’s when he stopped me. He introduced himself and gave me a hug. “What’s with that guy? Are you okay?”
“Yes thank you. Our first date didn’t go so well huh.”
“I’d take it as a blessing in disguise. You dodged a bullet.”
“I guess that’s one way to look at it.”
He has such kind eyes and offered to give me a ride home. I warned him it was a long way but he insisted and i was pretty upset having the company home wouldn’t be so bad.
By the time we got back to my place I was exhausted! I had some leftovers and went right to bed didn’t even bother to change or actually climb into the bed
Oscar stuck around for a little while playing on the computer. I didn’t mind I actually felt bad for being a bad host.
Pooch seemed to really like him too and I felt safe knowing that someone was in the next room in case Antonio came around again.
I don’t know when Oscar left but I had to call a repair person in to fix the computer. I still have my job in social media so I kind of need that computer to be in working condition.
Over the next couple of days I treated myself to a few things and did some interior decorating. I re did my kitchen and a little bit into the sitting area. I love my space it is so beautiful! I was inspired by the magical tree place.
Oscar stopped by and I was so excited to see him. I ran to hug him. He said he just wanted to check on me and make sure I was okay and that Antonio never came back.
I invited him in and baked a fresh batch of cookies. There’s that sweet tooth again.
We talked for hours. Oscar is such a good listener and he let me vent out all my troubles. As we were hanging out I got a call from Summer about a party and asked if Oscar wanted to come with me.
Of course I said yes I like never get to see her anymore since she had her babies. we had a bon fire and I tried to show off my super cool fire dance moves for Oscar. A scary dangerous dance but so thrilling and fun for me.
We snuck off from the rest of the group and had fun splashing around. The water was a little swampy but I didn’t care. I was just having so much fun with Oscar.
We stayed out pretty late. Thankfully I can work from home which is what I did the next day.
Oscar stopped by while I was working and it seemed like something was wrong. Though he was dodging the subject. Finally after lunch he told me.
“I have to be honest with you Serenity. I am homeless.”
“Yeah well I have been staying with friends but it’s not working out. I’m stressed and tired all the time.”
“I’m so sorry that awful.”
“That’s what I was doing the other night on your computer. I was trying to find somewhere to live but I’m afraid I just can’t find something affordable. I may have to go away back home.”
“is that far?’
“Yes very far. This may be the last time you see me.”
“No! But we are just getting to know each other.”
“Well why don’t you just move in with me.” I barely thought about the words before they just fell out of my mouth.
“Seriously? You don’t mind?”
“No! I would rather you stayed here with me than leave never to be seen again.”
“Wow that’s great!”
He was so thankful he just kissed me right there and then I was a little surprised but I loved it!
Of course I had to invite Summer over so she could meet him too!
He fits right in taking care of Pooch. Pooch adores him and she is so happy to have another sim to follow around.
And go for jogs with.
Oscar asked me to be his girlfriend and of course I said yes!
I am so happy and this happiness emotion inspires me to paint masterpieces!
Oscar found a new job in the Tech career so I guess we will be fighting over computer time but it is what it is.
To think such a bad date could end so well!
