The last trembling days of winter Liv and Ulv celebrated down at the winter festival. Ulv was trying to find something charming and intelligent to say to kiley. But everytime he was close to her he felt dumbstruck and could hardly form a sentence. But she did not seem to mind, instead she giggled coyly and blushed when he took her hands.
Liv ran into a freind from school. Cynthia Oss. They spent some time talking about the snow, the cold and basicly all and everything. The conversation floated so smoothly that Liv totally lost track of time. Before Cynthia had to go home she told her:
-You know what? I do not care if it take a millenia for me to get the savings together. Someday I will leave this dump and nasty weather and move to the warm paradise! Want to come?
-Well...uh.. yes of course. But....
-Good! Then it is settled! You and I towards the sunset!
On her way home she ran into Alberto. During the afternoon together with Cynthia she had totally forgot all about him - which felt kind of strange. Who would not like to be at the center of attention of the towns most attractive teenage boy?
-Hey, Liv - me and a bunch of other kids are going downtown later tonight he asked. Want to come?
-Is Darcy coming too? .
-Well, uuhm, yes as a matter of fact she is. But I rather be with you...
Darcy was the girlfreind of Alberto since forever Everyone kind of expected them to marry after high school. Liv sighed. She really did not want to do the same mistake as her mother had done.
-I dont feel like it tonight Alberto. I think I stay in instead.
-Your loss baby!
-You ever wished to be something else?
-Something else? What do you mean?
-Well, you know - to be normal Viola told Flora.
-This IS normal. It is the other ones who are unnormal. Freaks even! Flora made a funny face.
-Look at me! Wuaaa! I am a paleface!
Viola laughed. She knew she could always count on her siter to cheer her up. But still, the seed of being normal was sown. What if...
-Hiya Liv! How are you? Me and some other kids are going down to the festival trying to score some dancing moves. Want to come? Her brain wanted to scream "NO"! But before she knew she had said:
-Yes! I would love to!
When she arrived to the dance arena it was only Cynthia there.
-Thought you said there were gonna be a group Liv said carefully.
-I lied she said and blinked. I wanted to be alone with you and I knew that if I told you, you would most likely bolt.
Liv did not say anything. How could she? It was true after all. If she had asked her out she would have said no. But here she was now and the only thing she wanted was to look into this lovely brown eyes for an eternity.
-See, Cynthia said. This was not so bad was it?
Liv can not help but to nod and enjoy the movement to the music.

OK, my Sims are living their own lives quite frankly..... Which complicates things when it comes to writing. But, but it is what makes this so much fun to write!
