Sonia and Ra’ed had a second child together, a boy called Zachery. Daniel went round to say hello to his new nephew.
He doesn’t usually accept architect jobs these days, but when I saw Ra’ed wanted some new windows and lights added, and had a budget of 50,000 simoleons I thought it might be a good opportunity to add extra rooms for baby Zachery and his big brother Adam, as their house only had one bedroom.
Nora and Gillian auditioned for a gig at Eugi’s, but were told they weren’t quite up to standard yet.
Emmanuel stayed close to the bar, trying to learn some of the venue’s drink recipes.
Lino hung out with his cousin Alain. Alain is Salome’s son, the one born around the same time as Lino.
Vanessa’s film career was going very well. Since she had met all of co-workers, I decided to have her throw a little party for them at Aquarius.
One of the drinks she ordered must have been a crazy one, because she suddenly had the party animal trait and the option to dance on counters.
Nora came along to the party too. She spent most of the evening dancing with fellow commitment-phobe Matthew Hamming.
Emmanuel had a crush on one of his school friends, Lisa King. They share a sense of humour and are always making one another laugh. When her part time job at the spa had finished for the day, he got called her over to The Prosper Room for some drinks and dancing.
My game keeps putting all the club workers in the weirdest outfits! I think they’re from Showtime. Seriously, every single mixologist and pianist is wearing stuff like this before I restyle them.
Nora and Gillian were joined in their evening jam session by Gillian’s sister Leigh on guitar.
Just as I was about to have Nora ask Leigh to join her band, she got distracted by Matthew.
Emmanuel and Lisa went on another outing the next day, this time to the beach. He grilled them some hot dogs and gave her a bunch of flowers.
When it got dark, he walked her back to her house, where they shared their first kiss.
Meanwhile, his sisters’ evenings were just beginning. Nora and Gillian had another try at the Eugi’s audition, and this time were able to secure a gig for the next day.
Vanessa met up-and-coming artist Harry Marks. It turns out they share the artistic and bookworm traits, and his schmoozer trait fits in quite well with her wish to become rich and famous.
They moved their conversation upstairs into the relative privacy of the lobby area. I think Vanessa really likes this guy.
The next day was Daniel’s birthday. Stupidly I’d scheduled his party to start half way through Vanessa’s gig at Eugi’s, but she and Gillian were able to make it back home just in time to watch her dad age up. It was really nice to see Sonja, Ra’ed, Rene, and Salome all show up to celebrate with him too.
At the party, Nora finally asked Leigh to join her band, much to Leigh’s excitement.
Emmanuel created a special drink to commemorate his dad’s birthday. I wanted to use the ‘name drink after…’ social interaction, but I couldn’t find it. Perhaps it isn’t available for teenagers, or he needs a higher mixology skill level. I guess I’ll be able to let you know once he’s aged up and maxed out the skill! [Update: It requires mixology level 10.]
Vanessa and Harry found a quiet moment to sneak away to one of the elevators.
