We arrive at Nina’s condo and find Don loitering outside.
Nina walks out…pregnant. I had seen her around town, so I knew. We just don’t know who the father is.
Don: It better not be mine, I’m in enough shit as it is.
Nina couldn’t believe that she actually inherited money from Mortimer. It wasn’t much, but it was enough to keep food on the table during her pregnancy and she was grateful.
She still has a want to have 3 loves at once and woohoo 3 people (she’s down to one as the other has passed on). She apologizes to Don for whatever reason and then wants to flirt with him and ask him on a date.
Nina and Don have a dream date that end with them both wanting to woohoo and bed woohoo. I put in a hack so that the dates will leave after a the date ends, which is handy.
Dangerously low stats are held off with some food.
Along with new hacks, I went through all the others that I have. I’m so excited to get date gifts again. Don brings forth the first one I’ve had in 3 years.
Nina wants a skill point. She unclogs the toilet and then gets a clean point for cleaning that gross ass mess.
I went to get her an energizer and found out she doesn’t have her secondary aspiration yet. I find that she is supposed to be a pleasure/romance sim, so she gets pleasure.
Nina wants to buy new clothes, so she chooses Outdoor wear. She then gets a makeover. Her unwanted pregnancy has her feeling fat and uncomfortable.
Since there was nothing else for her to do that day, she heads off to work. Don runs past 3 times, stealing the paper on the first go.
Nina brings home a promotion. She heads upstairs to sleep. Something has changed for her and Don. He wakes her up around 7pm with a phone call and I notice she now has 3 bolts with him where before she only had 2. On her way to the phone, she has her second pop.
Don invites her Downtown. Nina takes a moment to take stock of her stats and decides that she is feeling up to an outing.
+~+~+ and I just noticed the time. Hopefully the outing is fast because I have to get ready and get my car to the mechanic soon.+~+~+~+~
Oh, it’s a date, not an outing. This should be fast.
+~+~+~ Back from the mechanic, very poor.+~+~+~+
It starts off with basic stuff and a duet (which is negative points for Nina? *shrug*).
It does go fast and I didn’t document it. I think Don was still upset with her over something I never saw, so it was a pain in the butt.
Brandi! I’m shocked at you!
Don: Let’s just add you to my little black book.
I got Nina home in time for me to rush out the door and I actually made it to the mechanic with 5 minutes to spare….and was then stuck there from 9 to 2 pm.
Upon my return, Nina had nothing to do. She gained her three cooking points for work.
Made back two lost friends for her next promotion.
Don rings the bell, Mary Sue Pleasant called for an outing and then she went into labor all in the span of 20 sim minutes.
Nina knew this baby was going to ruin her life. She thought it out for a total of 8 seconds.
..and put Maggie up for adoption.
While I was trying to figure out who was going to run our orphanage, this happens and this time I checked and no baby. Whew!
Since I knew Kaylynn was a Family sim and pregnant, she volunteered to run the place and straighten up her life of failed romances and issues with married men.
Also, we find out within minutes of caring for Maggie that Kaylynn is also pregnant.
It’s after work again and Nina wants to go on a date. This time she heads to the clubs and chooses one at random. Of course she chooses Ugly Landgraab, probably because he’s loaded.
The date goes well and Nina goes brain dead.
She bites the bullet and proposes to Malcolm.
She cancels out her want with a fear, the moron. But the deed is done.
With a fear for marriage and no want for it, Nina heads home. Malcolm brings by a present, which she desperately needs.
Nina heads over to the computer and pays Maggie’s up keep charges.
A good chance card earns Nina $2,000 and she also gets a promotion and gets another $2,000 to end the round for her. She does some cleaning and works on skills for her next promotion that night.
The next morning, we move on to the next house.
I read rules that single romance sims should roll to see if they keep their child or put it up for adoption. I have expanded this to include any single sim who has a risky pregnancy without marriage prospects. I do allow NPC pregnancy, if one happens, there may be an unwed mothers home for them to move to in the future. I saw Kaylynn throw up and deduced that she was pregnant.
The Adoption rule:
A dice is rolled from 1-100. 50 and below is a vote for adoption and 51 and higher is to keep it and raise it. Nina rolled 7 on her first pop.
I then added that each life stage, there will be a $3,000 fee paid to the Orphanage. The Orphanage will be played, but may not be documented very often. Anyone wanting to adopt will choose from the Orphanage first.
