Last time with the Diffys, Leslie made her relationship official, Tom met Gwendolyn Marks, and Wanda and Aidan gave their youngest two kids some money to get them started in life. This time…
This is Leslie starting out her last day living in the house. ;_;
She’s showing off the new eye and skin defaults that I added into my game. This is Neiuro’s Mango Smoothie Skinblend and Burnt Waffles’ Sarhra Eyes (I also just found out through searching that there is an update to those eyes so I will be switching to that version).
Wanda: “So what’s your plans now?”
Leslie: “I found a nice little house that is very affordable. Right by the beach, on the other end of the street. I’ll be able to make a down payment no problem. Then I want to join politics. I’m going to work from the inside to make the world better.”
Wanda: “I’m so proud of you, Leslie. I think you’ll do well.”
This is our new maid, Efraim (no idea why the game replaced our other maid). It appears he’s chosen to take advantage of working at a house with a pool.
And I guess this isn’t his first time using our diving board…
Tom: “I’m going to win!”
Gwendolyn: “With a head start, you cheater!”
Oh, yeah, Aidan fulfilled his LTW!
Before Leslie can go, she must watch one of the cats die. This is Sally’s passing.
Tammy 2 mourns her.
Tom: “Leslie! So do you agree with my idea for a vacation? I really want you to come with me.”
Leslie: “Of course I’ll go with you. As if you can be trusted to go travelling around the world by yourself and have all the fun. No way.”
Okay, another cat death. I guess I really messed them up by changing the lifespan. I mean, my Sims have a 90 day lifespan, so how is it that cats live 50+ days? Main reason I was annoyed with them was because they wouldn’t take care of themselves, but now on my new computer they are suddenly perfect saints who are always in the green. Whoops.
Oh yeah, back to the death. This time it’s Mushi.
Sorry, Mushi. I also just noticed Tammy 2 sticking her head into the picture.
We got invited to a pool party at Kim’s house. Awesome!
Tom spends his time running laps around the pool. A bit too close to the edge, but no lifeguard to blow a whistle at him.
And Tom finally got to play a trivia challenge (which was one of few options with Kim because apparently a 3-star celebrity is too good to talk to their own grandchildren).
And she won because obviously she knows more useless facts than Tom.
Tom: “You are one of the few people whom I won’t berate the ignorance of.”
Kim: “What? Stop staring at me.”
But you’re so cuuuute.
Kim also interviewed Wanda while they were there. I didn’t know that townie Sims could do this autonomously.
Then Tom ditched the party to meet Gwen.
Tom: “I’ve been wondering if maybe you like me? Since we spend so much time together…”
Gwendolyn: “I don’t know if I could make it any more obvious, so yeah.”
Tom: “Me and my sister have been planning this trip for a little getaway. Would you like to come with us?”
Gwendolyn: “That sounds so cool! But if we take this trip, does that mean we’re dating?.”
Tom: “Well, it would be awkward if we weren’t. So, yeah.”
Gwendolyn: “Cool. Boyfriend and girlfriend.”
(I kind of think it’s cute that he’s kissing her forehead because of the uneven ground lol)
After Tom invited Gwen, it was quickly decided that Harrison should also come along. Shang Simla, China was the destination in mind, with Tom and Gwen wanting to learn more about martial arts, and Leslie and Harrison appreciating the historical significance.
Leslie and Harrison spent their time relaxing at spas and reading books (especially Harrison since he tried to stay indoors as much as possible).
Tom and Gwen’s interests were in learning new skills…
…and some sightseeing.
Gwendolyn: “Excuse me, Mr. Diffy, but do you presume to sleep with me?”
Tom: “No, I only presume that we both want to sleep in the nicest bedroom at this lodge.”
Gwendolyn: “Don’t lie. I saw that you have protection in your bag.”
Tom: “Look, that is not–I mean, I don’t expect you to–I mean, that’s just in case.”
Gwendolyn: “Okay, enough. We should do it.”
Tom: “You want to?”
Gwendolyn: “Of course I do. I’ve never done it before and I want to see if sex lives up to what everyone says. So why not with you?”
Tom: “Okay, you’ve convinced me.”
Tom: “I love red.”
Gwendolyn: “I know.”
In the morning, Tom and Leslie meet at a park:
Tom: “So I have something to tell you.”
Leslie: “Yeah, me too. Harry told me he’s a vampire.”
Tom: “A vampire? I knew you wouldn’t attract someone normal. Your boyfriend is delusional!”
Leslie: “He showed me his teeth. He can make them sharper and longer at will. It might be true. I’m not sure if this is a relationship dealbreaker for me.”
Tom: “It might be true? Did he suck your blood?!”
Leslie: “No, Tom, he did not suck my blood.”
Tom: “Yeah, because that would be ridiculous.”
Tom: “This is so typical. Here I am about to tell you that I had sex for the first time, and you jump the gun with this sh*t. Now how is anything I say supposed to be impressive?”
Leslie: “Sorry, it just happened.”
Tom: “Sure, sure.”
Leslie: “So that’s why Gwen wanted to sleep in…”
Tom: “Uh-huh. Anyway, it’s about time we packed for the return.”
Leslie: “You’re right. Harry is acting all weird now. Let’s go home today.”
Next time: The official start of Tom’s generation!
Note: The trip was done in a separate save just for the fun of it.
