I'm not trying to pressure you

You ain't even really got to be my girlfriend
I just want to know your name and maybe sometime
We can hook up, hang out, just chill

Kali Knowles was one excited teenager! After much begging and pleading, she had finally convinced her parents to let her throw a Halloween party! She just knew it was going to be the best party ever!

"Your brother wanted me to ask you if he could bring Ricki and Ryan over to the party," Tanner said.
"DAD! This is a HIGH SCHOOL party! I can't have a bunch of little kids running around!" she exclaimed.
"Bunch of kids? It's only two, Kali. Really, must you be so dramatic?"
"I'm not being dramatic. If Kevin brings them, then Kayla will want to bring Liam too. No way, Dad."
"I told him you wouldn't want them there," Tanner said laughing.
"And you were right!"

"So you mother tells me there will be boys at this party....." Tanner began.
"DAD........can we please not do this?" Kali asked.
"Do what?"
"Have a talk about's not necessary," Kali said.
"Bring that conversation in here you two," Keisha said.

"I don't understand why you couldn't have a party with just you, Imani, and Imara," Tanner said.
"Because that's a sleepover, not a party! I don't see what the big deal is," Kali said.
"Sure you don't. I'm sure your excitement about this party has nothing to do with the fact that there will be boys," Keisha said laughing.
"It doesn't!" 

"You know, I've been thinking...." Kali began.
"Don't think too much, wouldn't want you hurting yourself," Tanner said laughing.
"Haha Dad, you're so NOT funny! I think you guys should go out tonight. Make it a date night. You haven't been spending enough time together lately. It'll be good for you," Kali said.

"That's the best you got?" Keisha asked laughing.
"Kali, I'm disappointed. That's the best you could do? If you think I'm going to leave my teenage daughter alone in my house with little hormonal boys running around, you've finally lost it," Tanner said laughing.
"Well it was worth a shot............"

"Why did we decide to go through this again?" Tanner asked as Kali got up.
"Because you love me Daddy," Kali said laughing as she went to her room.
"That can't be it," Tanner said.
"I'm afraid it is dear.......just a few more years and we'll have the house to ourselves," Keisha said laughing.

It wasn't long before Kali's friends began showing up. Imara showed up as what she thought Ben Franklin looked like after discovering lighting. Gallagher came as a fighting llama.  He still hadn't admitted it to Kayden, but now he was willing to admit it to himself: he had a crush on Imara Coners. And now he didn't know how he was suppose to behave around her. Surely she didn't feel the same about way possible!

Kayden, being a bit more outgoing than his friend, decided it was time to let Kali know how he felt about her.
"Why are you so mad Kali? I can't help how I feel," he said.
"Well neither can I! I like Carl, Kayden. I've always liked him........why'd you have to go and mess things up with us? God, I should never have invited you and Gallagher," she said walking off.

Keisha over heard the fight between Kali and Kayden, but she wouldn't interfere unless asked to by Kali. Neither she nor Tanner liked Carl Faulkner, but telling Kali that would only make things worse. Kayden was a nice boy.......and Kali was a smart would all work itself out hopefully......

Samara had originally planned to not come to this party, but Imara begged her too. Kali and Imani got on her nerves and she really didn't want to hang out with them outside of school. But Imara was her friend and she couldn't let her down. Surprisingly, she and Imani got along pretty well.........

"What are you supposed to be?" Kayden asked Imara.
"Why does everyone keep asking me that? I would think it would be obvious! I'm Benjamin Franklin!"
"Yea, I think Kali hates me now........" 
"Why, what happened?"
"I told her that I liked an idiot!" Kayden said.
"Is that all? We all knew that!"
"Then why is she mad?"
"Because you told her," Imara said.
"What? You realize that makes no sense right?"
"She could pretend that you didn't until you told her that you did," she said.

His dad told him that girls were confusing, but he didn't believe him. Oh how right his father was........

"I'm trying to get my mom to take a bunch of us to LBU to look around. You want to come?" Kali asked.
"For what? I'm not going to college, Kali."
"But why not? If you get your grades up now, you can go on scholarship. And they have assistance programs........"
"I don't care! I don't like going to high school, why the hell would I want to put myself through 4 more years of that?" Carl asked.
"But it's not just like high school. You'll be away from here, on your own.........with me," Kali said.
"Can we just talk about this later?"

"You know if she sees us, she's gonna freak," Keisha said.
"I don't care........We let her throw the party, she knew we'd be hanging around keeping an eye on things," Tanner said.
"If this were Kevin would you be sitting out here?" 
"But it's not Kevin," Tanner said with a laugh.

As things started winding down, Kali and Imani sat around the fire with their crushes.
"I can't wait to go to college man......we can throw parties like this all the time!" Hunter said.
"I know! No curfews, no's going to be awesome," Imani said.
"I don't get why you guys want to go to college for that. You can just move out of your parents house and have that," Carl said.
"And do what? Really good jobs require college education, Carl. What are you going to do if you don't go to college?" Kali asked.
"Whatever I want. That's the beauty of it. While you guys are being tied down to books for four more years, I'll be out and about," he said.
"Whatever you say man. I still can't wait to go to college," Hunter said.
Kali felt the same way.......and if Carl wasn't going to go to school, what did that mean for them? Surely she was too young to be worried about that, they were only 15! He would change his mind, she was sure of it. 

Gallagher learned a lesson from Kayden's fumble. There was no way he was going to risk letting Imara shoot him down. No way, man. He'd just play with Kali's cute little dog all night.......

But he should have known that Kayden wouldn't let that slide.
"Why aren't you talking to Imara?"
"About what? We have nothing to talk about," Gallagher said.
"Seriously? So you're going to play with that dog all night and leave her to feel out of place? You know she isn't the party type, probably only came because Imani dragged her along," Kayden said.
"So? You were keeping her company, right?"
"No, I was asking her why her friend is so crazy. Just go talk to her man."
"I can't, Kayden. Why would she want to talk to me? I'm an orphan whose 2 years younger than her. Not to mention how much I picked on her when we were younger!"
"That's history one is telling you to bare your me, it's not a good idea. Just go freaking talk to her!" Kayden said.
"Fine, whatever!"

"Benjamin Franklin huh?" Gallagher asked.
"Yes! You're the first person to get it!"
"It seems pretty obvious to what are you doing here? You don't seem like the party type of girl," Gallagher said.
"I'm not. But Imani nagged me until I agreed to come. What about you?"
"Kayden. He can be pretty pushy too."
"Sounds like you need a new friend and I need a new sister," Imara said with a smile.

Kayden was happy to see that Gallagher was finally having a real good time. Playing with that dog was just sad.......At least one of them was getting somewhere with the girl they liked............

But he wasn't going to worry about Kali anymore. She was one girl after all. He'd just be her friend and let her make her own mistakes, because Carl Faulkner was definitely a mistake...........

"So are things going to be weird with us now?" Kali asked once her father broke up the party and started sending her friends home.
"No. We're still friends, nothing I can do about how I feel just like nothing you can do about how you feel. I'll still whoop you at video games at the arcade," Kayden said with a smile.
"You're sure? Because I like you Kayden. As a friend........"
"Yea, I got that part. Seriously, it's fine it's not like I was in love with you," Kayden said walking off laughing. The laughter stopped once he was out of her line of vision though..........

Kali wasn't expecting any drama at her party at all. Sure, she kinda suspected that Kayden liked her, but who would have thought he would actually tell her?! She didn't know how things got to be so complicated.........

* Oh how I want Kali and Kayden together! She has three bolts with both he and Carl, with Carl being a few points ahead of Kayden. Carl is a romance sim and so I just don't see things ending well with them. As much as it pains me, I'm going to let Kali decide on this.........

* Most of the costumes came from the costume trunk by simslice. I like it, but it doesn't have that many options for teens.

* I'm almost positive that we will revisit this love triangle during Kayden's update lol. I think Gallagher and Imara are also 3 bolters if I'm not mistaken. I can see them getting together way faster than Kayden and Kali :)

* I think Slade will be 70 years old and will still have women everywhere going into cardiac arrest by just thinking about him lol. Someone is swooning over him in almost every house I play :)


  1. LOL Slade! I have a few ladies who always swoon over Rupert.

    Liked the party, glad everyone had fun for the most part! Poor Kayden, and for Kali to react like that was a bit childish, but she is only 15 after all. Hopefully things will work themselves out. It may take some time. But they just may surprise you!

    1. First loves are usually quite messy lol. I think it will eventually work itself out, but you can't tell with sims sometimes ;)

  2. Kayden needs a hug, howev I could see them getting together later, though if he waits for her....that's another story.

    1. Haha, Kayden does need a hug :/......he's pretty cute, you're right it is another story if he waits or not.......

  3. I can think of a few older famous guys who still have women swooning over them, so I'm sure Slade will one day be one of them!

    Poor Kayden. Perhaps he'll be rewarded one day, when Kali finds out Karl isn't really all that. "Benjamin Franklin" was too funny. I can definitely see some sparks between Imara and Gallagher!

    1. Slade will forever be a sex symbol I think! I think this will end up being a funny story for Kayden and Kali to tell their kids *crosses fingers*......Imara is so geeky, it seemed like the perfect costume for her! I can also see the two of them getting together but they are both so shy so it may take a bit of time


Thanks so much for reading and commenting! Awesomeness :)
