Round 7 - March 2039 - BTULast update/ Next update
Ginger Newson is 18 (Caleb Henderson is 18)
I can't lie on my mind, stuck inside my head
I wanna feel your heart beat, for me instead, yeah
I just die so much inside, now that you're not there
I wanna feel your heart beat, like yesterday
She was a basket case. There was no other way to look at it. How could she run up yelling at Caleb about going out on a date, when she was dating two guys? In her mind, she felt justified. Martin and Parker were simply distractions, Caleb was just.....dating. It wasn't to forget her, he held no memories or lingering feelings. She knew he wasn't going to let it go, knew they would have to talk about it.
She loved her townhouse, loved living in the city. She even almost had a view of the water. But she felt she was missing out on a real college experience. Caleb hated dealing with all the mess going on between Ricky and Meadow, but Ginger kinda wished she could be there for it. Besides, they were adults. She was trying to get Caleb to see that he didn't need to watch out for them. Some people just needed to learn the hard way......like her........
She had been hanging out a lot with Martin. He was so nice. She felt bad about not having stronger feelings for him. It wasn't his fault that she was hopelessly in love with her best friend.....
But maybe if she kept seeing Martin and Parker she would eventually fall for one of them. It was a selfish thing to do and one of them would end up getting hurt, but she was out of options. She had to do something before she lost her best friend. She couldn't stand to lose Caleb.......
She went out with Parker the next day.
"Why did you pick this place? Isn't this where people get married?" Ginger asked.
"Yes it is. But it also has a very nice restaurant as well. And you can't beat the view of the ocean. You don't like it?" he asked.
"No, no I do. It's just weird. I feel like we should be getting married or something. And I feel under dressed," she said laughing.
"Well, I don't know you well enough now, but who knows? Maybe we'll end up getting married here," he said with a smile. Ginger's stomach dropped down to her knees.......
It was then that she realized she couldn't continue to do this. Parker and Martin were two really wonderful guys who deserved someone with a heart to give. Hers had been stolen a long time ago......
So she kissed him one last time.........
And told him she would call him later. And she would......but he wouldn't like what she had to say. Was she a chicken? No doubt! But she wasn't brave enough to do it in person.....
As she was getting into her cab, she noticed for the first time that Ricky and Meadow were also at Paradise Cove. Neither of them looked happy and Ginger couldn't even imagine what was going on with those two now.
It wasn't long before Caleb came by to talk about what happened between them.
"Are you ok? I've never seen you so mad!" he said.
"Oh, I'm fine," she said smiling.
"You sure didn't seem fine. Why can't you just talk to me, Ginny?"
"Nothing to talk about," she said leaving his embrace.
"Ginger, what's doing on?"
"Why can't you just leave it alone? I said I'm fine, what more do you want?"
"How about the truth? We used to talk about everything. What happened?" he asked.
"It's just better this way. Please can we just drop it?"
"No! We need to talk about it now, before it becomes a bigger problem," Caleb said.
"We're friends right?" she asked.
"Yes! Are you going somewhere with this?"
"I love you."
"I love you too, Ginny. That's why I want to know what's wrong," he said.
"No, you don't get it. I love you. Or rather, I'm IN love with you. So you see, there's nothing that can be done. You can't fix this, can't tell me that you feel the same because I know you don't. So there it is," she said leaving the ball in his court.
She was in love with him. And as she sat facing forward, waiting on a response, he didn't know what to say. His best friend was in love with him. What the hell was he to do about it?
* These two are just ridiculous. Completely in love and scared witless about it. As soon as Ginger ended her date, this was what her wants looked like:
Poor Parker hadn't even left the lot and she was already thinking about Caleb. I can see Caleb being scared and not wanting to mess up things between them. I guess we'll see what happens in their next update :)
* So I JUST realized that you can enlarge the lot view and see more buildings. I can even see across the water when I play one of the beach lots! Had no idea I could do that but I"m excited about more background for my pics. I'd always left the lot view on medium but my laptop can handle large now :)
