2.3

 I just got a raise and a promotion this week. I feel like I had accomplished so many this past few weeks. Me and Julie had been busting ourselves off to pay the rent, bills and other necessities. But with our promotion and raises this past few weeks, we are not struggling to make ends meet. Finally, things started to fall into place.

 

When I came back home, Julie was at her room. But someone else in on the couch.

 

 He looks familiar. When I looked at his face I remember him. He was the one whom I met at the dance club weeks ago. Is he a bum?

 

 I asked Julie who the guy is. “Julie, who is the creepy guy sleeping at the couch?” I asked.

“Caite! Shhh! He’s my cousin! He was visiting me from Bridgeport!” Julie replied.

I felt stupid calling Julie’s cousin creepy but hey, I didn’t know him.

“Well? What’s his name?” I asked Julie.

“He’s name is Greg Henderson” answered Julie. “He just arrived weeks ago and he was staying at my mom’s house this past week. He said he wanted to crash in our house for the moment. Is that Ok with you?”

“Well, what choice do I have Julie? So, will he be staying in the living room?” I asked.

“No. I bought a Queen Sized bed and put it in your room. If you don’t mind, He’ll be sleeping in your room with you.” Julie said.

“WHAT?!”

 

 So this like the most awkward event of the day. Greg and I was left alone after he woke up from his nap. Julie went to shop for groceries so I was stuck at home keeping Greg company. I was watching a romance movie and Greg joined me. Greg recognized me from the club. He scoot right next to me.

 

 I turned my head to his direction to break the ice. I think he was going to whisper me something so our lips was accidentally met each other.

“Uhhh.. Uhh..” I said nervously. I was so red and I try to avoid eye contact with him.

“That was great! Ready for another SPECIAL round?” Greg said.

We both went to my room and continued what we had on our new bed. I heard Julie came to the door but I was too busy savoring the moment.

 

 At midnight, I went to get a snack. I smell smoke from the kitchen so I came in. I saw fire! and Julie was struggling to put it out! I called the firefighters but  they are late always! Me and Greg helped Julie put out the house fire and was successfully put out with no harm except our furnitures. So we bought new furniture and we are back to square one.

 

 After Julie prepared a midnight snack, she served it to us and ate it. But after eating it I went to the bathroom and started to barf. I think there is something totally wrong with Julie’s food.

2.2

It was our first day at work for both me and Julie. She works at the Journalism career, while I will work at the Politics career.

 

I met my boss and her name was Natasha Ross. She encouraged me to take up Charisma Class which I did after work.

 

After Charisma Class I called Julie and invited her to have some fun at the club near us. She didn’t want to join me because she was loaded and she needed to refine her writing skills in order to get promoted. I admit I’m a bit of a Workaholic myself too but I need some fun.

 

I saw someone dancing alone on the far end of the club so I joined him.He looks decent and very gentlemen-like so I approached him.

 

After some dancing, I kinda made a move that is too fast for him. I danced with him slowly.

 

He refused and ran away. I was so heart broken. I guess I’m not meant to have a partner.

 

 

2.1

An ordinary night in the beautiful town of Sunset Valley. The lighthouse standing proud on a small isle guarding the tranquil see with it’s vibrant light. The night sky embracing the land with the stars sparkling with an ever elegant glow.

 

My name is Caitlin Alaska. Daughter of Well-known Author, Sharmaine Alaska and Athlete, Jeremy Alaska. I’m just your ordinary Young Adult starting out a life and trying to be independent. I have the most beautiful Sandy-colored hair you’ll ever see which sparkles when the sun shines on it. Fierce gray eyes and perfect skin tone. In short. I’m the most beautiful sim evah!Gosh, I guess I inherited mom’s brilliant use of words! I never knew I can be a poet! So anyway, I just move out from my parent’s house and moved in to an acquaintance’s house.

 

Her name is Julie Haynes. She has chocolate brown messy hair that I think flees are infesting it. Thick glasses that covers her ugly brown eyes and a horrible fashion sense. Don’t tell her I said that. Anyway, we just met hmm.. let’s see… 10 mins. ago? When Aunt Janelle called the local agency for a house needing a bed spacer and Julie was the only one available. She was just at the same age as I was so I agreed. She looked dorky in someway but I can live with that.

We exchanged formalities when we finally met.

“Hi! You must be Caitlin!”

“Duh! and I assume your Julia?”

“Julie!”

“Oh right! Listen, I don’t have the energy to talk right now. You got some extra bed in your place?”

“Sure I do! Come in! Make yourself at home!”

 

I went to the room next to Julie’s. As I was laying down the neatly made bed, I thought about my mom who is probably worried sick about me. She is still treating me like a little kid I hated it! But deep down I like it a bit because they were treating me like a princess until my teen years ended. I thought about my dad who inspires me alot on following my dreams. Then I thought about my brother. I can’t believe I left them already. A teardrop dropped from my eyes then I closed my eyes and fallen into a deep slumber.

 

I woke up feeling great because I had a very nice dream about my parents. After I got myself cleaned up I went into Julie’s room and I saw her in the computer. Her eyes were so focused on the screen and she didn’t even look at me when I greeted her.

“Good Morning Julia!” I greeted.

“It’s Julie!” she said, here eyes still focused on the screen.

“What are you doing deary? It’s a beautiful day out!”

“I’m on The Seems 3 forums! Haven’t you heard of it? I’m chatting with my internet friends at the moment”

“Huh..I think you need some Real friends Julie.”

“I do have real friends!”

“Oh yeah? What are their names?”

“Uh..Uh..You?”

“Me? We’re friends?Listen, I have an idea. We should go to the Dance Club near the stadium.”

“What for?”

“Oh, let’s just say I want to have some fun.”

 

That afternoon, we went to the Dance Club.

 

Julie entered the room with an uneasy look in her eyes.

“Why is it so dark here? The laser lights hurt my eyes too!” she complained.

“It’s  called fun darling. Loosen up a bit will ya?Here, have a drink hon.” I said as I handed her a drink I ordered.

 

“What is this catastrophic concoction? It’s sparkling! It’s not gonna explode is it?” She asked.

“Oh I don’t think It won’t”

She took a small sip and her head went back to me.

“Hey! Tastes great!” She said as she vacuumed up her drink.

 

I felt happy for her finally having fun away from the computer. As the speakers play techno music I claimed the dance floor as my own.

I shouted at Julie “Julie! Dance! C’mon!”

 

\

“Oh no thanks Caite! I’m enjoying already! I’ll just be here in the corner drinking this lovely juice” She said.

“Oh all right well, have fun!” I replied.

“Look! Caite! A handsome guy! Aren’t you looking for one!” She shouted.

“SHHHH!! Be Quiet!!” I angrily replied to Julie.

 

The man whom Julie pointed approached me who asked me If I wanted to dance with him. I accepted his request and gladly held his hand a broke the dance floor.

 

As we continued dancing. He whispered something on my ear. He whispered to me, “Jack Peppers. Adult. 26 North Valley Street. Woohoo for $100,000 ?” After he whispered his message to me he winked at me suggestively. I was absolutely disgusted. All the colors on me were pale. He approached me for a peck on the cheek but I slapped him and ran off.

 

Julie saw me running. She was on top of a table and dancing.

She said to me in a queasy and uneasy tone of voice. “Hey *burps* Where are you going Caite?” she burps again after pronouncing my name.

 

“Let’s get out of here Julie! There’s a pervert around here! I don’t go well with perverts!” I grabbed Julia’s arm and rushed to the exit. We called a cab immidietly before that horrible man can catch up to us.

 

“Sir floor it please! 19 Maywood Glenn please!”

“Well that was an unproductive night wasn’t it Julie?” I said to Julie but she was leaning on the window and snoring. I try to take off the horrible man in my mind by thinking about my mom and dad but the thought keep coming. Why is it haunting me so?
