Round 1 - Summer 2024Next update
Terrance Coners is 32, Kenny is 9 (Tabitha Gunner is 33, Amanda Carlson is 27)
"Oh, I'm sorry. Didn't mean to run you over," he said.
"No problem. I was just coming up to knock on your door. I'm Amanda Carlson."
"Terrance Coners. I don't think I've seen you around here before," he said.
"Oh, well I don't live around here," she said blushing.
"So why are you walking around strange neighborhoods?"
"Yea, I know Tessa, and that sounds just like her. Listen, Talum Heights is a nice neighborhood, but crazies live everywhere. This probably isn't the best way to go about meeting people," he said.
"I know. But I just hate going out to clubs. Too many people make me a bit nervous. I'm sorry for taking up your time. It was really nice meeting you," she said.
"Hey, it was nice meeting you too. And it was no problem. Maybe we could meet for coffee or something one day. Just don't go walking around anymore strange neighborhoods ok?" he said smiling.
"You got it," she said laughing.
"Tab, there's nothing wrong with exercise. And he doesn't want you to lose any weight I'm sure. Just tone up your muscles so you can handle a bigger job. It's not that big of a deal and you can do it."
"Look at me Terrance. I mean really look at me. You can't tone up fat you know."
"I am looking at you Tab. Come into the house with me for a sec."
"No, Tabitha Gunner. You're going to just sit and listen to me. You're beautiful. You always have been and you just don't see it. You want to be more like Tessa? Why? She's superficial and materialistic. You're real. You're a beautiful woman with a great personality and a big heart. You don't even understand the power you would have if you would be just a bit more confident in who you are. You're not a size 6 Tab. And you never will be. You're exactly the way Simgod made you to be. A beautiful, curvy, sexy woman."
"I love you too. I just want you to be happy. Stop downing yourself. You're gorgeous and any man would be lucky to be with you."
"Any man? Does that include you?" she asked blushing.
"Yes, any man Tab. And that definitely includes me."
And then there was that awkward silence again. The same silence that appears anytime they are together. The silence that just begs for him to kiss her. To taste her. To make her his own. But he won't. Because if he were honest, he would admit that he's scared. Scared that they wouldn't make it. Scared that they would. But Kenny bursts through the door announcing that he's ready to do his homework, and the moment is lost.
"I better get going," she says.
"Yea, you should. I'll call you later," he says.
*Round 1 is officially over! Ugh it took so long because of school and the holidays! But it's done and I couldn't be happier! It's wonderful!
*Terrance and Tabitha only have one bolt. but neither of them have any attraction to any other sim that they've come into contact with. And I think their score will go up once they are more involved with one another. So they will be crossing the hidden line in the sand in the next round!
*Tabitha doesn't even look big in that outfit. The maxis idea of fat is not fat at all but I guess in the sim world that's what fat is. Too bad that's not the case in the real world!!!!
*The title came from the Patti Labelle song If Only You Knew
