Erica spots Daniel alone in the garden. She’s so nervous her legs can barely carry her as she approaches him: “Hey Daniel! What are you doing out here all on your own?”
Daniel: “Oh, uh, I was just checking out the graves in your back yard. You don’t see that often!
Erica: “They’re my grandparents, actually. When I was a little girl I believed I saw my grandmother’s ghost once. Silly, huh?”
Daniel: “Oh no, ghosts totally exist, one could come out and take your soul this very second.”
Erica: “Holy plumbob a ghost! For real!”
Daniel: “Hahaha, can’t believe you would fall for that!”
Daniel: “Obviously ghosts do not exist!”
Daniel: “You’re such a silly gullible girl…”
Daniel: “…but I like you anyways. I’ve never met anyone as awesomely weird as you…”
Erica’s heart starts beating faster and faster… could he be saying what she thinks he is?
Suddenly, a stylish looking girl with short hair joins them.
Phoebe: “Yo, Dan!”
Daniel: “Hi Pheebs! This is Erica. Be careful around her, she spooks easily haha!”
Phoebe: “Hey Erica, nice to meet you! I’m Phoebe, Dan’s girlfriend.”
Erica: “Girlfriend? Oh no…”
She covers her mouth… has she actually said it out loud?
Phoebe: “What’s up?”
Erica: “Oh… uh… I just… didn’t want anyone else to know I thought I’d seen a ghost.”
Erica is mortified. Please let this be over already!
Phoebe: “You’re funny!”
Daniel: “Wait a minute, Erica – behind you!”
Erica: “What is is it?”
Daniel: “Bleuhbleuhbleuh I’m a ghost!”
Phoebe and Daniel start laughing while Erica just wishes she could dig herself a hole in the ground. How could everything go so horribly wrong all of the sudden?
Phoebe: “Anyways, as fun it was to meet you we gotta get going. Got stuff to do, don’t we Dan?” She winks.
Daniel: “Uh, yeah, sure.”
Erica just stands still as they walk off. Phoebe looks at Daniel and giggles.
Daniel: “What the plum was that?”
Phoebe: “What? Just a bit of fun! What’s up with your face?”
Erica stumbled into her room. She can barely see through the tears and all she wants to do is to hide under her bed sheets and cry. But she’s been working all her life to defeat her gloomy trait and she’s determined not to let it get the best of her now.
She goes downstairs to talk to her mom instead.
Erica: “Mom, why does everything have to be so difficult with boys?”
Ruby: “Oh honey…”
Erica: “I met this amazing guy and it turns out he has a girlfriend! He’d never mentioned her once!”
Ruby: “It’ll get better, you’ll see! You’ll just have to weed out the bad ones first. I know how you feel sweetie, trust me. Allen’s father even failed to mention that he had a wife to me… until it was too late, and then he wanted nothing to do with us. But it all turned out ok, because I met your dad and I couldn’t be any happier!”
Erica: “I know mom… but will I ever have what you two have?”
I’m testing the moustache look on Isaac. I was going for Magnum PI, but Isaac is no Tom Selleck and the taches in The Sims 4 leave a lot to be desired. I have yet to decide if Isaac can pull this off.
Ruby seems to think he can!
