Build Newcrest: Chapter 1.2

Gettin’ hitched!

So, me and Anahi were gettin’ real close and all that stuff. I’ve been acting like a total nerd ever since I met her. I even asked her to be my girlfriend and she agreed – score!

09-13-15_11-30 PM-2 When she finally graduated from high school I was like, “Hey, move in with me?”

09-14-15_11-40 PMShe was all, “You live in a plummin’ PARK!” and I was just, “So? You still love me…”

She does.

09-13-15_11-29 PMI knew my next step was a very adult one (so unlike me) so I went to the only adult I was close to: Frankie.

09-13-15_10-51 PMFrankie is this oddball dude I met when I visited Granite Falls a while back to meet up with this Hermit woman. Turns out she wasn’t there and Frankie was in her place. Whatever. He’s a good guy but kinda weird. He’s not an old geezer but he’s got a full head of gray hair. He doesn’t wear shoes and his ears are funky looking. If I believed in fairy tales I’d say he was an elf.

Anyway. I decided to visit him and talk to him about marriage. I wanted to make sure I was making the right choice. Frankie said he didn’t know much about marriage, actually.

09-13-15_10-51 PM-2What he DID tell me, though, was that I should know all three of her traits before I ask her to marry me. What, only three? I mean, people have lots of traits, not just three… OKAY, I did tell her before what my top three were, but… well… actually, hear me out.

Frankie believes in some belief system called “Game Awareness”. I don’t know exactly, it’s like a weird religion or cult thing. Aunt Aya also believes in this thing as well as my older sister, Chiyo. Aunt Aya learned about it when she stayed with the hippies and Chiyo at summer camp. I also remember this one dude from when I was a kid; he was looking for his son or something and came to see us and all this stuff and he was Game Aware… I don’t know what I believe, but… it’s irrelevant…um…

ANYWAY, I knew I needed some more help from other guys so we met some of Frankie’s friends in the park. They asked the basic questions: Is she pretty, is she crazy, some other stuff… In the end they gave me some OK advice. Much less freaky than Frank’s (despite the personal questions).

09-14-15_11-29 PMCut to the chase, but… I proposed! I didn’t take the guys’ advice and asked about her last trait. I loved her way too much to back out of it at that point! It would be like me asking her how many guys she woohooed with before me (none, ha!).

09-15-15_11-26 PM-3She said yes, of course.

09-15-15_11-26 PM-4She invited over her family so we could get married RIGHT THAT DAY. This is her dad

09-15-15_11-30 PM…and this is her mom.

09-15-15_11-30 PM-2This punk is her little brother.

09-15-15_11-56 PMI added a wedding arch because I knew it would be a place that future couples could enjoy in the park plus we would have a nice memento of our wedding.

I’m not actually one for weddings. I mean, I’ve been to all of my siblings’ weddings so that’s what, five? Suzu isn’t married. I don’t know if she’ll ever marry. She has a boyfriend who’s a ski instructor or something up in the mountains. She’s still writing her book. Whatever.

Back to Anahi and me.

09-15-15_11-53 PM-2We exchanged rings (hey, I was able to pay for one!)…

09-15-15_11-53 PM-6…and just like that I became a married man!

09-15-15_11-53 PM-8As we watched the stars later that night we talked about a lot of stuff. I learned something really important, though. Anahi grew up to hate children. This heir stuff was going to be harder than I thought…

  1. LOL! I love it! “Hates children!” Perfect… plus your hermit is awesome. And I love you worked in all the game-awareness stuff!

    (If I ever do a game that needs CAS Sims, maybe I’ll do an elf one! That sounds fun!)

    1. I have wanted to include game-awareness into my stories as soon as I saw everyone else talking about it but couldn’t really make it work. It’s about time, though. I mean, it’s been 200+ years for this family so you’d think the belief system would change over the years. XD

      Spoiler: When August and Eddie aged up they both earned elf ears! August’s girlfriend also has elf ears! And did I mention Anahi has elf ears, too? It’s in the family now!

        1. Townie!!! And it turns out that one of the mods I downloaded had the ear slider adjusted so even though I thought it was an EA thing turns out it was a modder!

          1. Ohhhh…. I was so hoping it was an EA thing. Well, aliens have elf ears! 🙂 And that’s so cool and awesome that you have elf Townies! Very fitting for the sort of nature-themed start to Build Newcrest!

    1. Spoiler alert: her DIL’s both told her they were pregnant and she actually started SOBBING. It’s actually funny. The only thing that would make that trait perfect is if they were happy when a pregnancy test was negative. They’re sad! It’s annoying. I posted about it on the forums, too! *grumble face*
