Kirk and Maranda were shocked. Could it be Ruby? But how was this possible?
Ruby: “Yes it’s me. Don’t look at me as if you’ve seen a ghost… actually, I see your point!”
Isaac left them alone to talk. He couldn’t quite hear them from the other room, but he didn’t hear any yelling and nothing he’d seen through the glass door looked disturbing. It was one long conversation though!
Finally, Ruby emerged.
Isaac: “How did it go?”
Ruby: “I think it went well! Your parents are such understanding people Isaac! You are very lucky.”
Isaac grabbed Ruby’s hands: “I am very lucky indeed.”
Ruby stepped back: “What the plum are you doing Isaac?”
Isaac doesn’t give up: “Ruby, I’ve never met anyone that I could be myself around… until I met you. You’re my best friend. And let’s face it, I’ve spent the better part of my life thinking about you in one way or another ever since my parents brought me to your park when I was a kid! I… I love you Ruby.”
Ruby just stood there in shock. Isaac used this to his advantage, and quickly planted a kiss on Ruby’s lips.
Ruby couldn’t believe what was happening: “You love me? But… that doesn’t make any sense! You can’t possibly love me… I’m just a ghost!”
Isaac wrapped his arms around Ruby: “Well that’s too bad because it doesn’t change a thing I’ve said.”
He kissed Ruby again, and this time, she kissed him back.
Isaac’s third and final trait is romantic.
I’ve put Isaac into the detective career, because I figured the good cop/bad cop thing would suit his outgoing yet mean personality.
Isaac: “Hi I’m Isaac, your friendly neighbourhood officer!”
Isaac: “Hey you! Did I just see you litter! Not on my watch, fattie!”
Isaac: “You’re under arrest! You have the right to remain silent. Everything you say or do can and WILL be used against you in court of law. And those shoes are hideous, by the way.”
The #Build Newcrest challenge does allow generation 2 to take up any of the Get to Work careers, however the detective career does prove to put you into a bit of a pickle, as it does require your sim to leave Newcrest and go to crime scenes in Willow Creek and Oasis Springs.
Since the official challenge explanation of why your sims don’t go to those neighbourhoods is that they are riddled with crime, visiting them as a policeman makes enough sense for me to justify it.
Isaac: “Hi Juanita, I know we haven’t ended things on the best note, but, err, can you describe what happened here?”
Juanita: “I cannot believe YOU of all people are taking my witness report!”
Isaac: “So what brings YOU to the crime scene?”
Isaac had a surprise for Kirk. He told him to meet him by the starter home Kirk had built to start Isaac’s starter neighbourhood.
To Kirk’s delight, he discovered Isaac had started working on the next home.
Isaac: “So, uh, this bit is meant to measure… oh wait, is this inches or centimetres?”
Perhaps building did not come quite as naturally to Isaac as it did to Kirk. But it didn’t matter. Kirk was overcome with pride. His little boy has become a responsible young man, ready to take on the family quest of building Newcrest.
