Round 7 - August 2038 - LBU
Think of me when you're out, when you're out there
I'll beg you nice from my knees
And when the world treats you way too fairly,
Well, it's a shame I'm a dream
All I wanted was you
All I wanted was you
They all started off good. Caleb, Ricky, and Meadow had made a pact to keep each other in line so that they would all finish the semester with great grades. And it all started off good. Well, for the first few days....
Meadow began trying to build her fan base, much like what she had in high school. Ricky had been doing his best to ignore her but Meadow wasn't worried. It was only a matter of time before he would be doing her assignments for her. In the mean time, she would make as many friends as she could, starting with Abigale Arnold.
"I decided to major in business. I know I want to own my own business in the city, I simply haven't decided what type. With my versatility, the options are endless," Meadow said.
"That's interesting........ummmmmm, what was your name again?" Abigale asked.
During the summer, Ricky had did all he could to build up his confidence. Now he was ready to sweep these college co-eds off their feet! He decided to start with Kimberly Jackson. In all honesty, Kimberly was the most beautiful girl Ricky had ever seen, and that included Meadow! She seemed to be pretty smart and she was also funny.
He stood outside talking to her until the sun started going down and then the most amazing thing happened: Ricky Cormier got his first kiss! Incredible. He spends years chasing Meadow Thayer and never even got a hand shake. A few hours with Kimberly and he gets a kiss. There was definitely a new Ricky in town!
To say that Caleb was shocked at Ricky's news was an understatement! He was happy for his friend, but he was also worried that Ricky was overcompensating for the years he wasted chasing Meadow. Caleb decided not to bring it up with Ricky until it became a problem. After all, his friend did deserve some happiness after dealing with Meadow all that time!
But when Caleb saw Ricky sneaking out of Abigale Arnold's room the next morning, he knew it was time to have a talk with his friend.
Even Meadow had taken notice of Ricky's newfound confidence. She actually found it quite sexy, which was a bit disturbing for her. Since when was Ricky Cormier sexy?
But Ricky wasn't the only one getting some attention. Caleb had a few girls making passes at him, but none that he found to be too interesting. He actually missed Ginger. Not in a girlfriend kind of way, he just wished she was there with the rest of them. It wasn't the same without her.......
Even Meadow was getting some attention. Not anything that she particularly cared for. As if she would be seen talking to the team mascot! No way!
Caleb was so excited when Ginger came to check out the campus and dorm life. He didn't know why, but her being there seemed to make everything right. He wasn't worried about Ricky sowing his oats all over campus or Meadow planning world domination. Ginger calmed him..........
But there was also some tension there. He didn't know why. Well, he had always felt that Ginger had a bit of a crush on him. And there were times when she looked at him with such a sadness. He didn't know what to do about that........didn't want to disrupt the delicate balance of their friendship. It was a crush.......it would pass eventually, right?
Meadow and Caleb decided to take a trip into town to hit the beach one night. Meadow couldn't believe who she ran into.
"Oh my gosh! Aren't you Slade Willis?" she asked.
"Yep, that's me. How you doing?"
"Oh! I am such a huge fan of your band! You guys so need to do a concert!" she said.
"We're working on a few things right now. It's always nice to meet beautiful fans," Slade said smiling.
"You are by far the sexiest man on the planet! I mean it! I know that seems a bit forward but I've never been one to bite my tongue," Meadow said.
"I'm flattered. Don't bite your tongue on my account. Let me do that."
"You name the place and time," she said.
"Let me get your number and we'll see what can be arranged," Slade said.
Caleb didn't know what was up with his friends. They both seemed to be sex crazed all of a sudden! He didn't bother telling Meadow that Slade Willis probably said that to every female he came into contact with. He knew it wouldn't make a difference to her. Insane. Was that where his hormones were headed? He hoped not!
Meadow knew Slade Willis got around. Everyone knew that. But that didn't mean that the right woman couldn't make him settle down. And who better than her? Imagine it, the wife of a rockstar.........definitely a life Meadow could see herself having!
Ricky skipped out on the beach to go out with Kimberly. As she watched him spill his chili all over the place, Kimberly briefly wondered what it was that she doing with him. This was Slade Willis all over again.....
But there was a kindness in Ricky's eyes that wasn't in Slade's. He was a good guy deep down. She wondered what it was that had made him want to be this smooth operator type guy.........
But it didn't matter. She would help him get past it. Because if there was one thing Kimberly had learned from Slade, it was what a bad man looked like. And Ricky Cormier was not a bad man.
Caleb and Meadow came back just as Kimberly was dropping off a rose for Ricky. Who the hell did she think she was? No one was going to take Ricky from her. She had worked hard to groom him and make him into HER puppy. There was really only one thing left to do............
Kimberly Jackson may have brought him a rose, but Meadow Thayer was now Ricky's first woohoo. And a guy never forgot his first.......
* These guys are going to be SO much fun to play!!!! Ricky and Meadow truly were hormone driven during this update! Caleb is the only one with a level head.......for now :)
* Kimberly is going to have to graduate soon. She's been at uni too long and keeps popping up in updates so she will soon be a non playable playable. I'm interested to see her relationship with Ricky. He's now a romance sim and is ready to sow some oats but Kimberly is his highest attraction score right now.
* I think Meadow is going to learn some life lessons through her dealings with Slade. He is of course the original heartbreaker lol. She acr'd with Ricky all on her own. She's been heart farting all over him. I think she may have caught a few feelings for old Ricky without realizing it lol
* Caleb and Ginger.......oh how I want them to get together. But I've promised myself that I would stay out of it.......as hard as that is for me :/
*All three of them got 3.0's this semester.
*All three of them got 3.0's this semester.
Next up is part two with Ginger's semester at BTU.......
