Kim and Jane: 5.7 “Potential”

Last time with the Diffys, Kim and Jane graduated from university and moved out of the house with C.B. and Emmie. Kim started her career in journalism, and C.B. retired as a firechief. Then Jane invited Thad and his wife Wendy to move in. This time…

We find Wendy Beaker-Subject skinny dipping in the public pool.

Reginald Norris: “Yeah! Belly flop!”

Wendy: “WHAT. Just when you thought and hoped the pool would stay empty…”

Reginald: “It’s like that? Whatever, I’m outtie.”

Jane: “Hi there! I’m so excited that you and Thad are moving in with me and Kim. It’s going to be fun!”

Wendy: “Are you sure you have room for us?”

Jane: “No worries, we just finished renovations. The attic has been turned into some bedrooms.”

Renovations, eh?

The new living area.

The Kitchen.

And the dining room off of the kitchen.

Wendy: “Now that we’ve moved out of our parents houses, we need to have a discussion.”

Thad: “Ugh, I hate discussions.”

screenshot-85

Wendy: “We’ve talked about this before, and I think we came to the right conclusion. I really like your friends Kim and Jane, and I hope that we might both be able to stay here.”

screenshot-87

Thad: “Of course. There’s no choosing; we’re both happy here. I’m glad we’re on the same page with this.”

Thad: “And this will be better for the both of us.”

screenshot-92

Wendy: “So it’s decided. We’re getting a divorce.”

screenshot-95

Wendy: “I’m sure you’re ready to move on from the confinements of our marriage. To find someone who is more, *ahem*, your type.”

Thad: “What?! Uh, I–”

screenshot-99

Jane: “What’s going on in here?! I sense tension, and there will be none of that in my house.”

screenshot-101

Wendy: “Don’t worry about it. We’re all getting along here, but Thad and I are divorcing.”

Jane: “What?!”

Thad: “We’re happy with the decision, Jane. We started dating as young teenagers, and our families really liked us together, but we’ve realized that it’s just not what we want anymore.”

Wendy: “We don’t want a romantic relationship, but we’re still going to be friends. Like always.”

Jane: “Too long; didn’t read.”

Thad: “What?!”

screenshot-102

Jane: “Hey guys, they’re getting a divorce!”

Thad: “Well that seems unnecessary.”

Jane: “Just thought everyone in the household should know so that it won’t be awkward.”

Wendy: “Don’t you see, Thad? This certainly isn’t awkward at all. Thank you, Jane.”

Jane: “You’re welcome.”

screenshot-108

Wendy and Jane head outside so that Wendy can jam out on her bass.

Wendy: “Yeah!”

screenshot-109

Jane: “She’s still learning, but I can just tell: this kid’s got potential.”

screenshot-112

Kim: “So…do you want to talk about it?”

Thad: “There’s nothing I need to get out, if that’s what you mean. I’m content with the decision, and I’m sure that Wendy is, too.”

screenshot-115

Thad: “This is going to be a new beginning for me, now that I have a little space from my family.”

 

screenshot-114

Thad: “Anyway, I’ve always felt like I had to become a police officer, like my dad. And when I was a kid, yeah, that’s what I wanted.”

Kim: “But what do you want now?”

screenshot-119

Thad: “I want to act, in movies, TV, the theater; I just enjoy it all. I like to be creative, and become a different person.”

screenshot-116

Kim: “Hey I remember you in our high school plays. The Importance of Being Earnest was amazing.”

Thad: “Yeah, Algernon, heh. That was a fun character.”

Thad: “And my drama teacher gave me contacts for agents in the business.”

Kim: “You should definitely go for it, then.”

So Thad does, acquiring a job in the film career, which is one of the secondary incomes. A little introduction to Thad: he is a grumpy, athletic genius, who is also an easily impressed and friendly Sim. His favorite color is yellow, and his LTW for the time being is Scientific Specialist. Previously, Story Progression did have him in the law enforcement career, like his father Ashley.

Wendy continues to practice her bass, which has become a hobby of hers, since the other secondary career is busker. Wendy is an unflirty, overemotional loner, who is also athletic and has an enthusiasm for vehicles. Her current LTW is to Become a Superstar Athlete, and her favorite color is white.

Jane is picking up her hobby of inventing toys and widgets, doing her part to fulfill the second primary income, inventor.

 

And now it’s time for a birthday.

screenshot-124

Emmie: *giggles*

screenshot-126

Oh, stop worrying about Thad and Wendy. They’re fine.

Jane: “No, no, I was just thinking about lightning bolts, electricity, and that scene from Sweet Home Alabama. I think I’ve got some ideas for new inventions.”

screenshot-128

Emmie: “Phew, sure feels good to not be in that little toddler body anymore.”

Jane: “Heh heh heh…”

screenshot-129

Jane: “She scares me, just a little.”

Next time: The spring festival is in town, and there will be visits from our friendly ghosts.

    An unflirty, overemotional loner? Wendy sounds just like me! lmao
    Just casually announce you’re going to divorce to the entire house. No tact. But I guess it is less awkward this way!
    Poor Jane. Why does Emmie scare her? XD

      I love Wendy’s traits, lol!
      Why not just get everything in the open? It’s awkward for a less amount of time, maybe.
      I imagine Emmie as talking like an adult would, in a child’s body. That’s what Jane is talking about, but she still cares about Emmie a lot.
