Welcome back to Brindleton Bay. Adrianna and her much younger husband still live on the original family plot, so Nicholas moves to an empty lot on the other side of town.
He left the fortune behind!
So, all he can afford is this tiny little speck of a house.
But, if you take your mom’s 5 money trees loaded with “fruit” and put it in the family inventory, you get 20 seeds to start your orchard with.
Nicholas’ future spouse is all picked out. How is one Evil sim going to nab a loner with commitment issues? You’re guess is as good as mine.
After planting the trees, Nicholas took a nap and headed to Willow Springs hoping that his future would walk past. He was there about 4 hours before he did.
Nicholas, stop fishing. He’s here!
With the speed in which MCCC pairs up people, this is being rushed more than I would have liked.
Cain: What do you want?
Nicholas: How about I cheer you up before telling you about that?
Cain: Thanks, I was a bit angry over how many people were at the park at 2 am.
Nicholas: No problem. Glad to meet you.
Nicholas: So, I’m doing this challenge and thought you would be perfect to help out. Although, if not, we can still be best friends. Sound good?
Cain: You told me something without actually telling me anything.
Nicholas: I did.
Stargazing at the park at 3am. Carry on.
First flirt is accepted, shocking me. I was expecting something vastly different.
For some reason, Willow Creek is almost daylight at 4am.
They are barely acquaintances, so of course a first kiss is successful. My game never allows a first kiss this soon. Cain is Confident and Nicholas is Very Flirty. I wonder if that’s the difference.
Nicholas: Now that we’re moving in together, I should state that any porn we make is not to be put online.
Also, they had their first kiss and then had the option to move in together.
Holy crap, Cain. A Non-Committal Loner? No you’re not. You’re about as much a loner as Nicholas is Evil.
With Cain’s move in money, they now have about $152,000. Considering I put him in a 20k starter home, I have no clue where he came up with that money. I wonder if MCCC moved him to a new house.
Cain starts off his aspiration (Nerd Brain) by reading his first book.
Nicholas: I’m really glad you moved in.
Cain: I think I am too.
Nicholas is not being subtle about being Very Flirty. His pink aura is insane in game.
Cain: You must be doing something to me. I can’t believe I asked you to be my boyfriend.
Cain: It’s like I can’t stop myself. What is happening to me?
Cain: *pleasesayno pleasesayNO*
Nicholas: I can’t believe you proposed.
Cain: I can’t believe you said yes. Ugh.
Nicholas: Was I supposed to say no?
Cain: Oh, no. Of course not. Everything is perfect.
Nicholas: Are you sure?
Cain: Of course. Don’t worry about it.
Cain: (Why does he want to get married now?)
Cain: (Pretend to be happy, it will all be over soon and then you can go outside and be alone).
Cain: (Well, at least we get to the fun part! Yay).
Nicholas: I can’t wait to tell Cain!
Oh, honey, don’t tell him yet.
Nicholas: I have to. This is the greatest day ever.
Cain: I didn’t sign up for this.
Nicholas: Yes, you did.
Cain: No, I don’t recall this in the fine print.
Nicholas: Well PRETEND dammit!
Nicholas: Do you need the hospital? You seem a bit hysterical.
Cain: Nope, everything is just FINE.
Nicholas: Did I make a mistake?
Nope. He just needs some time alone.
Nicholas: I’ll just be over here cooking food I can’t eat.
Nicholas: And napping on the couch because the extra two feet to the bed is too far.
Cain comes back in from his panic attack and reads book #2.
Also, Cain, never put on a shirt again. Thanks.
Cain: I guess wedded bliss isn’t too bad. Especially when food is made for you.
I wonder if Nicholas can die from being very flirty for so long.
They got a telescope and Cain did go out to it, but the storm chased him back inside.
So, they got a chess table and they play that together until the rain goes away.
Alert: Stephan has married some old lady with three kids.
Cain stayed in the telescope for 3 logic levels and now he really has to go.
Then they bought this house.
But it’s completely empty.
I cobbles some rooms from the gallery together to make this shambles. The house won’t last long, that’s for sure.
Cain has a hidden couch potato trait. He prefers to just watch tv all the time.
He also eats in front of the fridge, but I later realize that the table is not usable.
Neither one will use the perfectly good bed upstairs.
Unless I force them to.
At least these guys are sprouting finally.
When Scarlet calls them for the Spice Festival, Cain and Nicholas jump at the chance to escape that house.
Also, Scarlet is still adorable.
They had a great time and sampled several dishes, but they eventually had to pee and head home. They were both getting tired.
Well, that’s interesting. That means that either Asia or Demetrius will inherit the house.
I swear the garden is going to go dormant soon. It has changed to Fall.
3rd trimester and Nicholas is still getting morning sickness.
I sent him swimming, but I was bummed that you can watch him swim from the first floor. Boo.
Annette: Wtf, dude. Did you swallow a basketball?
Nicholas: Haha, nope. You will be an aunt soon though.
And then all these random people off the street starting walking through the house.
Nicholas starts hacking, but only gets like $91.
Cain still refuses to eat at the table unless directed do so.
He is now has to craft something on the woodworking bench and then upgrade/repair something. His handiness level is like 2, so that won’t get done anytime soon.
It’s a girl named Veronica. She has a healthy set of lungs.
Nicholas is already good friends with her, but Cain has no interest at all. I even directed him to feed her twice, but he dropped that to go watch tv.
Cain: I did not agree to this.
But you will be a good daddy anyway right?
Cain: Fine. Geez.
I caught Nicholas distracting Cain. Naughty.
Cain: Join me?
Nicholas: After I change the baby, okay?
Nicholas: Well, this is not gonna go well.
Cain: So if we set the charges here and here, we could blow the house up and get a new one built before Ronnie grows up and the other little bug is born.
Nicholas: Oh yeah, so they can visit their daddies in prison? I don’t think so.
I’m with Cain, we need to blow this shit up.
So, technically this isn’t a house. It’s an apartment, but they only need it for a little while. The house I want for them is too expensive their bank account.
The nursery is the old elevator shaft in the back right corner.
It really has all they need until Veronica grows up, I think. We just need those money trees to grow, dammit.
Annette invited them to her apartment. Nicholas wanted the family to meet Cain, so they all met up there.
Cain: It’s so big!!
LOL Couch potato!
Nicholas: We are not buying a huge tv and that’s that.
Cain: Who the hell are you and where did my sweet husband go?
Nicholas’ evil trait rears for the very first time.
Cain: Now, if you talk like that to me again, I’ll drop kick your ass. Deal?
They were only there for a few minutes. Everyone bailed before Cain could greet them. So, they gathered up posters and snow globes.
Daddy duty for Cain tonight. This maxes their relationship bar. Nicholas took his turn a little bit earlier.
Cain: This is stupid. Am I done yet?
Not yet. You can’t repair anything at level 4 handiness. Just keep going.
Omg, they finally grew! Wooo. We can’t harvest them yet, but at least they are actual trees.
Yeah, no early aging for this generation. Everyone is there for Nicholas’ aspiration. I’m sure I will push for skills, but maybe not as hard as I did for Annette and Nicholas (I think it was worse because I was juggling two of them).
Nicholas: Looks like a bottle of pepto barfed in here.
Cain: She’s a girl and this is pink. It’s perfect. Girls like pink, right?
Nicholas: I’m not a girl, so how would I know?
Cain: You bitch and whine like a girl, so I figured you’d be the next best person to ask.
And I think we better leave while we have a chance. Later, guys!
