Before Lexie knew it, it was fall, her favorite season, and she was still living in the fire station.The seasonal air filled her with mischievous feelings. Lexie has always loved playing dress up and going around pulling pranks on others - anything to stir up trouble.
She also loves making Jack-o-Lanterns and helped herself to a free pumpkin just lying around for anyone to steal.
At the festival she met Eva who is actually not dressed up. She just got off work and Lexie was drawn to her like a moth to a flame. They giggled about some of their more clever stealing sprees and exchanged burglary tips.
She heard Nathan's voice and swirled around to see him holding his daughter Wendy. That was a shock; she knew he was married but didn't know he had a kid. And the guy was still flirting with her, his wedding band displayed openly. And, doing all of this while holding his daughter - in public! No thanks cheater, Lexie thought as she excused herself from the conversation.
Lexie found a vacant lot for sale and without thinking it through first, bought it. Though it left her with very little money to buy much else. The first thing she did at "home"? Lexie the ever-practical minded, carved a pumpkin, giving no thought to how on earth she could build her own home without any money.
Lexie stood there in the rain all alone, just her pumpkin and her, thinking about what to do next. She was drenched and felt lonely. I wonder what Kyle is up to, thought Lexie.
So she stalked, er tracked down Kyle at a bar/entertainment venue where he'd just played a show. They chatted for a few hours until he wandered off complaining about having to pee so bad he might wet himself.
While she waited for him to return, she thought she'd have a drink at the bar... and this is what she saw. This place seems kind of dull if patrons have to bring books to read at the bar, Lexie thought, deciding to avoid the studious crowd.
She bumped into Jon who, despite being married, seems to be crushing on her big-time. He eagerly approached her to say that he'd seen her going into the art museum and loves art too.
While Lexie usually would have been interested in some innocent conversation about art, she was so disgusted with married men being so eager to cheat that she turned around and walked out of the venue. I'll just talk to Kyle later.
The next night Lexie was invited to her first party in Aurora Skies and was thrilled. Only the party was quite lame, filled with flower-giving for some weird reason. This is Stuart, who is also married, hitting on Lexie despite his wife being at the same party.
Immediately after that, Stuart's wife gave him flowers, seemingly begging for his attention. But in response to this loving gesture, he turned to Lexie and began openly flirting. At that point, his wife slapped him and walked out the front door leaving him to find his own ride home. Drama! [I'm not making any of this up]
Lexie turned around to get hit on by yet another guy at the party. "What is with men?" Lexie thought, "As soon as I have decided I'm unavailable they swarm me like flies on honey." She doesn't even have the "irresistible" LTR.
Lexie got back to the station late that night, yawning, but before bed she worked on a couple paintings to sell. She really needs to build a shack to live in to get out of the fire station.
Well, maybe some practice is needed but she'll get there. For now her paintings only sell for around 30 simoleons a pop, but at least it's some income. Honestly, she's made more money walking around collecting things like flowers. [Did you know simoleons were an actual currency?]
