I last left off with me in a bit of a confusion with my girls. Do I go for personality or beauty? Let’s find out!
With everyone out of the house, I decided to add on this sick gym to the house. All had all three pieces of work out equipment, plus, I bought another huge flat screen TV. What do ya’ think?
I also decided that it was time for another change. I quit my job as a Low-Orbit Specialist, and found a job in the Entertainer Career path as the Opening Act, for $54/hr.
I started putting on stand up comedies at the local bars. Although my first gig wasn’t too big of a success, I saw Hayley in the crowd!
Afterwards, it was all about Hayley. I wanted to see if we were even compatible. Or, do I just not waste my time, and move onto Cortney?
After much discussion at the bar, I still felt the connection between Hayley and I. Although this was the first time I’ve seen her in a while, I felt we had something.
I decided to invite her over. The first thing she did was run on the treadmill.
“Looking good,” I tried my best at flirting with her.
“Hah. Thanks Don!”
“Betcha’ I can run longer than you.” We were still really into making fun of each other.
Things continued on like this for a few hours. Nothing serious. Eventually, Hayley left, and I was left alone.
In the morning, I knew in order to be successful with my new career, I had to write routines. My last act was a major failure.
I thought up a few jokes, and was satisfied. Surely this act would get me a few laughs.
Sure enough, later that day, when I traveled to the lounge at Oasis Springs, I actually had a crowd surround me as I presented! Even my old best friend Dax showed up for moral support.
I even earned $173 in tips. Not bad!
Hayley showed up to cheer me on!
After my routine ended, I approached Hayley.
“Hayley, I think I’m ready,” since my job involved me humiliating myself in front of crowds all day, I had no problems asking her. “Would you like to go on a date with me?”
“I would love that Don!” She exclaimed.
“Sweet. Let’s go!” And off we went in the taxi cab to our date.
Too bad the date was right next door in the gym.
I took Hayley to the gym because I knew she loved to work out.
First, we just lounged on the couches in the lobby and discussed our interests.
Then, I confessed my attraction to her.
“Hayley, in case you haven’t noticed by now, I am romantically attracted to you.” I felt our relationship suddenly strengthen.
“You already know I feel the same way Don.”
The moment was heating up. I glazed deeply into her eyes. Into her soul. Hayley’s fiery red hair burned my heart. I started leaning in. My heart pounded a million miles a minute. My first kiss. It was coming. I puckered my lips, prepared to feel Hayley’s precious, warm lips collide with mine.
But suddenly, the moment was ruined. Hayley’s phone rang.
My heart sunk down, I sat back in my chair, and I felt my adrenaline drop.
“Oh ****!” I heard Hayley yell. “I’m really sorry Donte. I completely forgot I work tonight.” And out the door she went.
I was left alone at the gym.
I decided to call it a night early, and head straight home to bed. I was bummed the date ended like this. I was not in any mood to stay up, waiting for Hayley to get off of work.
The next morning, I studied up on my comedy skill. I read a few books pertaining to the subject to help me improve my jokes.
After reading for a couple of hours, I began to feel the loneliness settle in, for a third time.
I decided to invite Hayley over. Maybe we weren’t ready for a date yet. I whipped up some pancakes and we sat down to watch comedy shows (we both really enjoyed comedy).
“I’m really sorry about last night,” Hayley apologized. “I can’t believe I forgot about work.”
“It’s okay. We can just pick up things here.” I didn’t want to start over completely.
“Well, actually, I can’t stay long tonight, either.” Bummer. “I have a gig. You should stop by!” Hayley encouraged.
“Oh yeah! That will be fun!” I could not wait to see what Hayley had to offer as a comedian. I wondered if she was better than me?
After breakfast, she left to get ready for her big performance.
I decided to head over to her performance later that day.
She did fabulous.
I definitely had a competition in this town. Not to mention, my competition was my love bird.
After the gig was over, I approached Hayley. The mood may have not been quite the same as before, but it would do. I leaned in for the scrumptious kiss I had been craving. Our lips met.
“You did great,” I complimented her.
She turned as red as her hair. “Thanks.”
That’s all we needed to spark our relationship. Suddenly, I scoped her up, and things spiced up fast.
“How ’bout we take this back to my place?” I asked Hayley.
“That’d be wonderful.”
And away we went.
At my house, we took it right upstairs, into my bedroom.
We sat on my bed and made out.
I thought my heart would beat out my chest. I started yanking my shirt off, all the while tugging at her pants…
Things got really crazy.
My first woo hoo.
After our woo hoo, I felt Hayley and I were ready for the next level in our relationship.
“Hayley, will you be my girl friend?” I asked her, with no doubt she’d say no.
“I’d love to.”
Just like that, we were a couple.
I wanted to take it a step further as well. Things were too lonely here.
“Would you also move in with me?” I questioned.
“You know it!”
The next night, at work, I received a promotion and decided to choose the comedian path, of course. I now was a Jokesmith, making $67/hr.
After work, Hayley and I enjoyed another woo hoo. We made it our nightly tradition.
On a side note, I also found out that Hayley’s job was an Opening Act. So, she was one level below me.
At breakfast, I tried out my comedy material on her. It was my time to practice.
Of course, she loved it!
The days continued to zoom by, and eventually I found myself at level 6 of the entertainer career. I was a Solid Storyteller, with an hourly wage of $115. This also meant that it was time to get another job. As a renaissance sim, I like to keep things fresh, and master everything!
I was getting tired of being a comedian.
Searching for jobs on the computer, I came across the secret agent field. I felt like I would be a perfect fit, since I was pretty athletic. I took the position as a Field Agent.
Suddenly, I felt a tug on my chair. I turned around and Hayley was behind me in her lingerie. She simply wagged her finger at me, and I knew the deal.
Up to bed we went!
But not for sleep, of course…
The next day, I decided to work on my athletic skill since it would help a lot with my new career. This also meant improving my cooking skill, since the TV was right in front of me. Two easily improved skills.
As I worked out, I drifted into a day dream.
Hayley and I had been together much longer than any other Sim-couple. We were still only boyfriend and girlfriend. By now, most sims in this town would have taken it to the next level… Was I ready?
After working out, I cleaned myself up, and threw on my formal outfit. I went up to Hayley and told her to do the same.
Then, I took her to the lagoon across the street. I felt it was very romantic.
“What are we doing, Don?” Hayley asked me.
“Just wait,” I wanted to keep it as suspenseful as possible.
I bent down on one knee. The mood was perfect. I was ready.
“Hayley Franz, will you please do the honors of marrying me?” I asked with not an ounce of hesitation.
There was no immediate response.
I continued to gaze into her eyes at the shocked look on her face. Was there something in my teeth? Did my shirt have a hole in it? Why wasn’t she speaking? Surely she wasn’t speechless. Us comedians (or even ex-comedians) didn’t get stage fright.
“Hayley?” I reassured.
That’s when I saw death appear behind her, and my face turned white.
Did I really shock her to death?
I felt my knees begin to shake. My legs were starting to cramp up. What was there to do?
I did nothing but continue smiling.
This was by far one of the most awkward experiences of my life.
I was left alone…
So what happened at the romantic proposal? Did I really shock Hayley to death, or did she say no?
