New? Start Here.
It always feels a bit pathetic to hang up these seasonal pictures when there's only one Sim in them, but what the hey. Lexie is celebrating her new digs!
This is Lexie's shack - er- home. At least she was able to put a roof over her head and stop crashing at the fire station.
She got to work decorating the place and earned enough influence to be categorized as a rebel.
Wouldn't it be strange if such things happen in real life and suddenly you found a megaphone in your pocket for being a rebel? Lexie started a private protest against inappropriate behavior.
Did I mention that Kyle is her new roommate? He needed a place to crash after Marian booted him out and she needed the extra money. So, she invited him to be her roommate if he was willing to pay rent, which he was. (He remains a townie Sim who I cannot control but lives there.)
They enjoy peaceful mornings filled with music and art. They might as well enjoy life while they're young and have few responsibilities.
Lexie has very little, but what she does have, she treasures. "This is the life," she sighed, looking around her tiny unfurnished home. It was all hers, her very own, which is more than she's ever had.
Lexie continues to work hard on her painting skill and sells all her paintings to pay the bills. Now that she has a home, she has bills for the first time, which feels totally weird.
The consignment shop is literally next door to her home, which is wonderfully convenient. I wonder if the employee is a cancer patient or something because he always wears something over his head.
When she got home she decided to approach Kyle about joining a committed relationship. "Kyle, we're great friends - who uh... kiss sometimes, but I want to be more. Can we take this to the next level?" Lexie asked seductively.
Kyle was happy to oblige! The new couple celebrated their "going steady" status with a shower. ;-)
After their eventful shower, they sang romantic songs together until the early hours of the morning. Life is good for Lexie here in Aurora Skies; she hardly even thinks about her mother anymore.
After they both grabbed some sleep, Lexie asked Kyle on an "official" date for the first time. "Let's go play in the snow!" Lexie squealed. Where she was from, it rarely snowed.
Kyle looked at her quizzically, "OK....." He agreed, wondering where this was going.
It was a winter wonderland just for them and their blooming romance. They took a picture to capture the memory (and to get some tickets to buy awesome stuff at the festival).
For the grand finale, they took a romantic hot air balloon ride over the town, the snow falling down all around them.
Lexie's heart fluttered and her stomach filled with butterflies as she gazed at her new boyfriend; she couldn't believe she was so lucky. I have all I need. Lexie decided.
The night ended with more kissing in the moonlight. So this is what love feels like, Lexie smiled to herself, feeling happier than she ever had in her life.
