Legacy Challenge #3 – Making Advances

Eldiron started his morning at work feeling good and decided to work extra hard to push his work performance higher. He was eager to advance in his career and his life.

This, of course, made him quite tense when he arrived home. He decided to give his new friend, Ulrike, a call. He figured if anything could chill him out, it would be good conversation with a person he admired.

At this point, he had a little extra cash and decided to expand the walls of his home just a little. He also picked up a table that would eventually hold a computer of his own. He couldn’t quite afford the computer yet, or even a chair for the desk, but he figured you gotta start somewhere.

Shortly after construction, Ulrike arrived. Because of his tense mood, he made some comments that didn’t go over too well with his new friend. Logic doesn’t always take the number one spot in your brain when you’re not feeling your best.

Fortunately, their conversation eventually made him feel better, and he had more control over his emotions, as well as what was coming out of his mouth. Their conversation first turned playful, and then flirty.

Feeling confident and flirty, Eldiron decided to take a chance and kiss Ulrike. This was the first kiss he’d ever had, and he was surprised and pleased to learn it was Ulrike’s first kiss as well.

Directly after, he become emboldened and asked her to be his girlfriend. He hadn’t really thought it through. He hadn’t met many women since starting his new life in this town, but he really felt something special with Ulrike. Something he’d never felt before.

Evidently, she felt the same way, because she said yes! They took a photo together so they’d never forget this amazing day! Eldiron asked her to stay the night with him because he didn’t want this evening to end. He’d asked, and she’d accepted, and then he realized, they wouldn’t both fit in his tiny twin bed. He would need to upgrade it immediately. Because money was tight, he decided to resell the desk he’d previously bought so he could afford a new bed.

He then realized that if either of them needed to use the restroom that night, which he already needed to, it might be a little uncomfortable, seeing how the toilet was in the same room as every other thing in this little shack he’d built. While he couldn’t yet afford to completely close it in, he decided that some walls and some privacy was better than none.

This would have to do, he thought. He made some grilled cheese for a very late dinner, but Ulrike fell into bed before he’d even finished cooking. Poor thing. He ate and immediately crawled into bed with her.

Before he drifted off to sleep, he thought about the woman lying next to him. Their first night sleeping in the same home, but it felt right. It felt like it was always meant to be this way. They hadn’t even WooHoo’ed yet, and he was anxious about doing so, because Ulrike would undoubtedly find out he was an alien when they finally did WooHoo. He was too tired to think about that now. Sleep took hold of him, and he drifted into dreams.

The next morning, Ulrike woke first. She was quite hungry, having skipped dinner the night before. She partook of the leftover grilled cheese in the fridge. Sitting on the edge of this air mattress, in this tiny hovel Eldiron called home, she was surprised at how little it mattered to her. She felt at home with him, no matter where that home was, and no matter what it looked like. She knew this relationship was special. She knew this MAN was special.

A little later, Ulrike headed off, and Eldiron had some time to catch up on his very small garden. It brought in a little money, so he added a much needed light to the new bathroom area, and finally finished off the walls and added a door. A proper bathroom at last!

Fortunately, Eldiron had the day off, because this small remodel left him with 1 simoleon to his name! He had to scrounge up some sell-able loot quickly or he would not be able to feed himself a substantial meal. The work was tiresome and boring. He found it made him quite tense, but he had no other choice.

05-31-16_10-19-10 PM

Early that evening, Ulrike dropped by again. Eldiron was happy to see her, and rushed to invite her inside. He was still tense and desperately in need of fun. While he’d imagined the first time they WooHoo’ed would be more romantic, or that he’d at least be in a flirtier mood, Ulrike knew exactly what he needed.

While this definitely cured his tension, and boosted his fun levels, Ulrike found out Eldiron was an alien! He had expected her to run away or react in an equally shocked manner, but she just fell asleep. She realized his nature, but she’d always been a believer of the extraterrestrial world beyond her own. She was a free thinker, she was open-minded, and she fell in love with him for who he was, not what he was. Her acceptance made him fall hard. He knew he loved her, and he knew she was the one to begin his legacy here on Earth with. He knew she would be the perfect matriarch for their future family. He couldn’t compel himself to wait even a moment longer before asking…

Ulrike, on the same wavelength, it seemed, didn’t want to wait even a moment after saying “yes” to begin their new lives together. She couldn’t bear to waste even a moment away from her love. She suggested they get married, right then and right there. Eldiron, of course, agreed.

(Author note – At about this time, I read that you weren’t supposed to use townies who lived in a house in the world. Ulrike Faust lived in a house with a roomate in Windenburg. Because I hadn’t spent much time playing in Windenburg yet, I didn’t know that. After reading comments on the official rules website, I saw someone ask this very question, and the creator of the rules responded that if you did not know the Sim’s traits before pursuing a relationship with him/her, then it was fine. I’ll be more wary of this in the future.)

After the wedding, Ulrike was very happy, and Eldiron was glowing… erm, literally.

Although they’d just WooHoo’ed it was time to consummate this marriage! They were both so high on life, there wasn’t much logical thought going on. Just happiness, and love, and passion. They may not have used any form of protection this time. I guess we’ll see how that turns out…
