Brick By Boring Brick - Part I

Round 7 - April 2040 - LBU
Caleb Henderson, Ricky Cormier, Meadow Thayer, and Kimberly Jackson are 19 (Slade Willis is 25)

Well, she lives in a fairy tale
Somewhere too far for us to find
Forgotten the taste and smell
Of the world that she's left behind
Keep your feet on the ground
When your head's in the clouds
Well, go get your shovel
And we'll dig a deep hole
To bury the castle, bury the castle

Caleb Henderson was pissed. His springbreak plans had been ruined by Meadow and Ricky. He and Ginger were suppose to go away with Ricky and Kimberly for springbreak. After Meadow dropped the bomb about sleeping with Ricky, Kimberly broke things off with him. Sure, he and Ginger could have gone by themselves, but he wasn't ready for a trip like that with just the two of them.........damn Meadow and her meddling!

Kimberly missed Ricky. She really did. But she didn't think she could forgive what he did. Maybe if it had been a different girl. Of all the females on campus, he just HAD to be sleeping with Meadow Thayer. Kimberly despised her, really and truly wanted to beat her ass. But she knew that Ricky was just as guilty as Meadow in this whole thing.......

Meadow wasn't really concerned about Kimberly OR Ricky at the moment. Slade had broken up with her! She was still in shock. She really and truly hadn't seen it coming. She thought things were going along just fine for them. And she really hadn't believed it when everyone said that Slade wasn't the settling down type.......she wasn't stupid, she knew he wouldn't go quietly but she had figured he would jump at the opportunity......who wouldn't want to spend their lives with her?

Ricky cornered Kimberly in the hottub in an effort to talk to her.
"Come on, Kim how long are you planning on staying mad?"
"Until I'm not mad anymore."
"And when will that be?" he asked.
"Probably never. So just let it go, Ricky. You should be happy, now you can sleep with her all you want," she said.

"Look, I messed up, is that what you want to hear?"
"No, I know you messed up! Why her? Why would you sleep with her after all the crap she gave you?"
"I don't know........I've always had a crush on Meadow, for as long as I can remember. But she didn't want me. And then we got here and she was interested. Oh, I know it was because she wanted to control me, make me feel like she wanted to be with me. But I knew better. So I used her. Yea, it was wrong, but she had used me for years and was still trying to use me. And when I met you it wasn't that serious with us. I don't even know when it got to be serious.......but it is isn't it?" he asked.
"It was for me. I thought we were working towards something. I guess that's what I get for assuming that were were exclusive," Kimberly said sadly.
"Don't say that, Kim. This is all me," Ricky said.

"I want us to be exclusive. Just you and me," he said.
"It's not that simple," she said laughing.
"I know it's not. But it doesn't have to be. We can take it as slow as you want. I just don't want to lose you Kim. At least think about it."
"Okay, I'll think about it........"

The next day, Ricky took Caleb down to Pirate's Beach for some surfing.
"I'm still pissed at you. We could be up in the mountains in front of a roaring fire right now if you hadn't messed around with Maniac Meadow," Caleb said.
"I know, I know. Let's just get in the water okay?"

There was nothing like growing up in LaQuest many people got to go surfing on a regular basis? A short taxi ride and you were on beautiful beaches with beautiful people........

Ricky had never been the most coordinated person in the world, so surfing wasn't his first choice in recreational activities. Oh he did alright sometimes.........

And Caleb was a whole lot better than him..........

But it was never too long before they were both tumbling off of their boards. It wasn't a mountain with a roaring fire, but Caleb had to admit that he had fun.

They had returned back to the dorms and Caleb was inside grabbing something to eat from the cafeteria when he heard a loud commotion outside............

It seemed that Kimberly had been walking outside after taking a swim when Meadow came up to her and started shoving her. As both girls despised one another, a fight quickly ensued, with Kimberly coming out the winner.......

Caleb hated to see his friends fighting......and it was all really so stupid. Meadow was such a selfish person, she didn't even want Ricky, she just wanted the teenage boy who was infactuated with her back........but that boy no longer existed and she just needed to get over it.........

Kimberly came in and sat down by Caleb once the fight was over.
"Did you see me kick her ass?"
"Yea, I saw it.......Kimberly you really shouldn't stoop to Meadow's level like that......."
"Oh come on Caleb! She shoved me, what was I suppose to do?" Kimberly asked.

"I don't know, it's just all so stupid," he said.
"I agree with you, but that chick is crazy! Now she knows not to mess with me so hopefully that will be the end of all of this nonsense."
"I hope so. College is suppose to be fun, not all this drama you guys have going on," he said.
"I couldn't agree more."

Meadow convinced Slade to come over one last time. She knew she was acting desperate, knew that it wasn't her style, but there was just something about Slade..........

The only reason Slade agreed to see Meadow was that he was feeling nostalgic. Oh, not about her, but about Lily Rose Hall. He, Kenny, and Brian had all stayed there only a few years a go. It was good to be back. But this was definitely the last time Meadow would be seeing him, unless she came to a concert or something......

"What do you think you're doing?" Ricky asked as Meadow sat down.
"Look, all I want to do is talk," she said.
"There's nothing to talk about. You're a psycho, end of story."
"Maybe I deserve that. Look, I just want you to know I'm sorry about how things happened. I shouldn't have said anything to Kimberly about us. Things just aren't going so well for me right now and I don't know how to handle it," she said.

"We used to be friends, remember?" she said.
"No. When was this?"
"All throughout high do remember!" she said.
"We were never friends. I liked you and you used me.....that's not exactly what friends do, Meadow."
"Yea.........anyway, now you know that I'm sorry, so we can move on right?" she asked.
"You got into a fight with the girl who I'm trying to win back......what do you think?"
"Fine! Whatever, I don't need you anyway!"

It wasn't until a few weeks later when she had a stomach bug that wouldn't go away that Meadow realized just how wrong she had been in making that statement........

She was going to need Ricky and a whole host of other people to get through the mess she had gotten herself into this time.......

* First of all, I am SO sorry for the ridiculously sharpen pics at the end. I just figured out how to batch edit with photoshop and for some reason it over sharpened those two. I would have left them out, but they were too important......

* So if you didn't figure it out before, Meadow here is pregnant. With Slade's baby.........yea that's going to go over great! I don't know what's going to happen with her and the baby. She could end it now, or she could give it up for adoption, or she could keep it and make Slade pay child support. I'm on the fence right now. Slade isn't going to want anything to do with the baby I'm sure........and I did roll an adoption ROS for the next round........oh I don't know what I'm going to do with this............

* Meadow was a family sim but she didn't act like one so I changed her to fortune since you get the chance to change them junior year. I can see her more as a gold digger than super mom lol. Ricky is also no longer a romance sim, I changed him to pleasure, it fit his personality better anyway. Caleb is still a popularity sim though.

* I like playing all of these kids and may end up making them the very least Meadow will become playable if she decides to keep the baby.........

* Part II is on Ginger at BTU. We'll also hear a little more from Meadow


  1. I had a feeling that Meadow would be pregnant. I'm glad that Ricky apologized, but I want Kimberly to hold out a bit longer, it was still douchbaggyish what Ricky did. Besides, Meadow wasn't the only one he was with...right?

  2. Apple Valley - I'm still pissed that she got pregnant lol.......there's so much to decide now! You're right, there were other girls, but Kimberly doesn't know that lol. Ricky is pretty sneaky and Kimberly didn't live in their previous dorm :/. I don't think she's just going to run back into his arms willingly though.......especially now that Meadow has come up pregnant shortly after she found out that they were sleeping together........

  3. Ugh, what a mess! Ricky is lucky Kimberly is even deigning to be in the same room as him right now, let alone considering taking him back. :\

    But OMG!!! Drama! Slade is going to be a daddy - depending on Meadow's decision, obviously. I can't wait to find out what happens.


Thanks so much for reading and commenting! Awesomeness :)
