Romance is in the air! Or it ought to be. Francisca’s ghost returns every few days to moon over her now-fiancee, Grayson.
They hug and snuggle, and get all sappy together.
They have even made out on the couch once or twice.
I can’t re-marry them and bring Francisca back into the house, as part of the terms of the challenge. But it’s nice that she can come back to visit from time to time.
Olivia, now an Elder, is still dancing by herself.
While I watched her dance, I suddenly realized that unless I did something – and fast – she could die of old age a virgin. Too pitiful!
At about this time, playing Bentley was a boring grind of skilling up and going to work. So I took on Olivia as a side project.
The first candidate seemed unimpressed with Olivia’s romantic overtures.
Gift-giving is an ability that was introduced with the Generations expansion pack. I had Olivia offer him a bouquet of red roses.
He was all, “Oh, no no no. NO thank you!”
She got a lot farther with Candidate #2.
But then he died before they could consummate.
(That’s the hazard of dating old guys!)
Speaking of doomed romance, Bentley painted something pretty great this week!
I get excited every time I see an in-game reference to Mort and Bella Goth.
And speaking of Bentley, I captured him with this great expression. It makes me think of Bender’s “Shut up, baby, I know it!”
Oh – and he hit his Lifetime Wish! AND I was able to snap a picture in time!
Okay, back to Olivia! The third candidate was a little reluctant at first. He rejected her first attempt at a kiss. Ouch!
She finally wheedled him into spending the night. But before anything could happen… he fell asleep.
(What IS it with these old dudes? That’s just sad!)
The next morning, Olivia woke up wanting a shower. Oh and another thing introduced with the Generations expansion pack? “Woo Hoo in Shower”!
She’s 83 now, and will probably die of old age before next week. At least I can feel a little less guilty about her, though.
