Ellen decided that the first order of business for the week would be to buy a phone. She then called up the only eligible male and chatted him up.
Russell: Ow,. That hurts!
Russell: *thwaps Olive in the face* Hahaha!
Hey look, a picture of Olive without her squinty eyes!
After a respectable amount of time.
Olive: You call 10 minutes respectable?
Shush. I’m talking now.
Olive: No, you’re lying now.
Ugh. Fine. After an indecent amount of time, Ellen invited Scott Hopson over and he brought (foster) sister, Doreen too. While Ellen was waiting for them, Russell called up Jordan Gibson who brought over Louise. I got everyone chatting and then sat back and let nature take its course. Scott flirted with Ellen and Russell flirted with Jordan, just as planned.
As expected, ACR kicks in and Russell gets his first kiss. Ellen takes her time though and chats with Scott.
Ellen seems a bit more shy, and just flirts lightly with Scott, while Russell and Jordan have already gone to bed together. Twice.
Ellen finally gets up her nerve and plants her first kiss on a very happy Scott.
Once unleashed, Ellen becomes a lip smooching monster.
Scott: Halp! She broke my arm!
Poor Scott. I think that’s the third smooch. I was more interested that Louise saw Justin walking by and went to kiss his hand. I later saw them pillow fighting on the side yard.
The house was set up for a home business, so Russell’s Toys was born. Jordan sent a lovely gift of battery powered grow lights for Russell’s comfort while he made the toys.
Who knew Pop Tarts could be so dangerous? The first fire was recorded in the town notes. No one was harmed and it was successfully put out by Olive.
Fern saw Scott walking by and got his attention in her most favorite way. Instead of taking the invitation to stay and socialize, he just turned around and kept walking.
Not even 5 minutes later, Jordan makes his pass. Russell was in need of water, but stopped to kiss Jordan. Again, Jordan just turned and left the lot. It’s still late afternoon. I have no clue why neither one stayed. I was bummed… I mean, the were bummed.
I later found Russell making the first town booty call.
After a quick tickle, Russell wants to go on a date.
Around mid-date, the couple became best friends and towards the end they both fell in love!
They both wanted to get engaged. They were already at dream date status, but if you notice the time, I did not want Jordan to run off.
They had an end of date engagement.
After one last romp in the bed they got down to the business of marriage. Jordan was so happy. He never even told his children about the wedding. He knew Eric was ready to take over as heir, so Jordan moved in right away and took the Fayers last name as his own.
Ellen: We need another bathroom.
Russell: Or you could just move out.
Ellen: Nah. More fun tripping over everyone in this small house.
Russell was finally able to open the store. He had just gotten his bronze badge and was ready to start making money. He had Ellen man the register and Olive was in charge of selling. Jordan was quite happy puttering around the house and taking over the cooking duties.
After around 20 unsuccessful attempts to have a baby, Russell finally convinced me to let him spawn one. Jordan was sad that he seemed to be suffering from an age related sperm decrease. He had really wanted to father a child with Russell.
Little Fern Fayer was grown from Russell’s spores. I was quite at a loss for her black hair. I found out (a few hours after playing the household), that I had an ideal plantsim in place. I think that was overriding my default plantsim skin too. I cannot remember what the ideal looked like, so I hope Fern doesn’t end up fugly.
Not needing sleep means that Russell must take over when his sisters go to bed. He regularly tries to close up the shop by 8pm so that he can spend the evening with Jordan and Fern.
Olive got a bronze sales badge. Russell made it to silver toymaking and the shop reached level 2.
Everybody loves Fern! Ellen even got her started on the nursery rhyme. I forgot how long it takes without smart milk.
In other news: Olive is reading a mechanical book above, but I am not sure if she will count since she is romantically involved with Tobias. Ellen learned Couples Counseling and parenting and Olive learned Physiology and Parenting.
Taxes: Deferred for four years.
Fees: $500 marriage license.
Fern did her supernatural roll. She will become human as an adult.
Of note: I had got rid of the plantsim issue and I really hated that skin anyway.
New and totally improved Russell.
Fern’s look is updated too.
