Spring came to Sunset Valley, and Love Day rolled around. That’s the game’s Valentine’s Day, and love-y actions are more likely to succeed on this day.
After the maid’s shift was over, I had Robin invite her to hang out. Just to see how things went.
He started by giving her a look that was more “constipated” than “smoldering.”
But it seemed to work, because she was totally into him.
Like, totally into him.
In fact, she spent the night.
She even woke up in the middle of the night to change the baby.
The next day, Robin invited her down to Sunset Valley’s iconic beach and proposed marriage. (Why wait?)
She said yes!
Shanita Blevins will be an Alphabetti soon. If we can just get through the wedding.
The weather has been terrible all week. Rain, thunderstorms, the whole bit. So even though Robin’s house is small, I decided it would be best to hold the wedding inside. I bought them the cheapest wedding arch (I think it’s made of plywood) and plunked it in the living room.
A little dog showed up. Which is weird, because I don’t remember inviting a little dog.
Apparently he likes Robin’s table.
Unfortunately, although it was only 4PM, Robin was both hungry and exhausted. He decided to bail on the wedding in order to make one of the few things he knows how to cook (salad).
Then he went to bed.
All of the party guests left, complaining about a wedding where nobody got married. (Fair enough.)
Robin woke up a few hours later feeling a little bit better. I was annoyed, and Shanita was still hanging around, so I had them get married right then. Pajamas and all.
Then they cut the wedding cake and ate it in silence.
I decided to have Shanita earn us City Hall under the terms of the challenge. To do this, she needs to max out her Logic and Charisma skills. The next day I started her off reading a Logic book.
But it turned out it was Summer’s birthday, so we had a party instead.
All the guests – every single one – brought food. That’s a first.
Then everyone got stuck in the kitchen.
By the way, that’s Shanita front and center. When I went to give her hair and wardrobe a makeover, I was drawn to the animal prints.
Meanwhile, Robin was overwhelmed by all the people in the house and stressed out from all the parties. So I sent him into the back room to work on his novel while the party continued in the other room. He was relieved. (I can relate.)
