“Thanks for letting me stay at your place for the rest of the summer, Sunny! It’s really nice here.” Barry said, lounging on the guest bed.
” It’s cool Barry, no need to kiss ass. I mean, I’m giving Sy as much time alone as he needs, ya know?” I explained. “So what do you wanna like, do? Summers almost over. “
“I unno Sunny, it’s up to you.” He said.
Thinking for a moment, I gasped. “Oh my god! We need to get you laid!…What kind of girls are you into?”
“Can’t we just clone you or something?”
I smiled and rolled my eyes, “No!”
“Meh, I’m fine being a virgin for now.” He laughed.
“Well why should we clone me? Why couldn’t it just be me?”
“Oh shut up, Sunny!”
“No really! Just like, as favor, you know?” I teased.
“You’re full of it. You love Sy way too much.” He said, laughing nervously.
I turned the lights out and reached into my pocket, pulling out a condom.
“What if Sy and I already talked about it?” I grinned.
Barry quickly sat up on the bed.
“Seriously, you’re such a phoney baloney!”
I jumped on his lap, pushing him onto the bed. “Are you rejecting me, Barry?” I whispered.
“N-no.. I just… why, though?” He stuttered.
I kissed him softly on the lips and giggled, “What are friends for, right?”
“Sunny?” He whispered.
“You can imagine Sy instead, if you want.”
“I’ll imagine you.”
…Three days later…
As I was rushing to finish getting ready for Dorothy and Cruz’ wedding, I heard a honk outside, followed almost immediately by a knock outside the bathroom door.
“Sunny! Seymour’s in the driveway waiting, hurry up, slow poke!”
“Yeah yeah, I’m trying, okay!? Go stall him, will ya?” I shouted.
“Hey Sy. She’s still getting ready.”
“ugh, she needs to hurry.” Seymour said, “And by the way, some others will be joining us for the ride, hope that’s okay.”
“Nah, I don’t mind.” Barry replied.
The boys were getting impatient waiting for me to get ready.
“Hey man, do you think you can go tell her to get her butt in gear? I don’t wanna be l-“
I stopped Seymour mid-sentence as I stepped out the door.
Feeling like a fairytale princess, I ran down the steps and threw my arms around him. I feel like it’s been just too long! Although he lives right across the street, he’s been spending most of the summer alone with his family since Agnes’ death.
“She really does.” Barry added.
“So you were saying something about someone getting a ride with us?” Barry asked.
“Yeah, my sister and her date, Corey.”
“Oh, there they are!” I said, waving.
Gwendolyn and Corey made their way across the street to us.
“Hey guys!” Gwendolyn waved back.
“…That’s your sister?” Barry asked, sounding somewhat surprised.
“Yeah, it sucks, but that’s Gwendolyn. Gwendolyn, this is Barry.” Seymour introduced, as they shook hands.
“I think I remember you from court, right?” Gwendolyn asked.
“Yeah, but we never officially met.” He smiled.
I quickly jumped in front of Barry and hugged Gwendolyn tightly.
“You look so pretty!” I said.
I pulled Corey forward immediately after.
“What about Corey, have you met Corey?” I asked.
“Nope. Hey man.” Barry nodded.
As I caught up with Gwendolyn I noticed Barry staring at Corey. I figured he was just scared of him or something. So as we got in the car I explained that Corey isn’t always grumpy, he just looks that way.
Dorothy and Cruz said their I dos and shared their first kiss as husband and wife. For the amount of money Cruz and Dorothy both had, the wedding looked pretty rushed, but I’m sure they had their reasons.
I do know, however, that Brandt wasn’t excited to be there. Brandt and Dorothy had something special, so I’m sure being there was like reopening a freshly healed wound.
Seymour did his best to keep Brandt’s mind off of Dorothy, by showing him silly simtube videos.
I decided to leave Sy alone and go hang out with Barry.
“Barry! Come on, let’s go boogie!” I said, pulling him towards the dance floor.
He hesitated, “Well, I think I’d rather go have a drink first.”
“Barry, you don’t even drink?”
“Can’t be a virgin to that forever either, can I?” he laughed.
“Haha! I guess you’re right. I’ll go with you!” I laughed.
“Uh, well, you don’t have to if you don’t want, you know. I mean I don’t want to tie you up all night.” He said.
“No worries, it’s fine! Seymour’s busy anyway.”
I grabbed his arm excitedly as we made our way to the bar.
“Dorothy looked so pretty tonight didn’t she?!”
“Sure, but she definitely wasn’t the prettiest here tonight!” He smiled, as I leaned my head on his shoulder.
Barry took a seat at the bar, while I checked my phone. Gwendolyn was already having a drink all by herself.
“Hey Gwendy, where’s your date?” I asked, not really paying attention.
“Ugh. Do not get me started with him, long story. She said, grumpily.
“We have time!” Barry chimed in enthusiastically, which caught my attention.
“Well okay, where do I start?!” She began, making her way around us to the chair. I watched Barry in the corner of my eye as he followed her with his eyes. I immediately got Barry’s attention back by hopping onto the table.
“Cruz still wants my dick, and hasn’t stopped texting me all night, which really pissed Corey off so-“
“Wait, the groom, Cruz?” Barry interrupted.
“THE GROOM CRUZ.”
“Don’t look now, but…” She whispered, tilting her head towards Cruz, who was waiting on her reply in the background.
“Oh look, Sy’s coming! Must be time to go.” I blurted, holding my hand out, for Barry to help me off the counter top.
As Seymour met up with me, and held my hand, Toni and her family approached us…well me, specifically.
“You look so cute tonight, Kirsten!” Toni complimented.
What the hell could she possibly be up to?
“….Thanks… Toni. I appreciate it.” I said reluctantly.
There was an awkward pause, before Toni smiled at the both of us and stepped away.
We all rode home with Seymour, and hung out in the living room for a while. Seymour lied his head in my lap, and I’ll admit we were a little over affectionate with one another, since it’s been so long since we’ve spent any quality time with each other. Luckily, Barry was kind enough to keep Gwendolyn company! Hopefully he didn’t mind too much.
I began to feel sleepy after Gwendolyn left, so Seymour offered Barry his room, and Sy and I would just take Persephone’s old room. It’s where we stay whenever I stay the night anyway.
We could barely make it down the stairs before gravitating towards one another like magnets.
“God, I’ve missed this, baby. I’ve missed you…” Seymour whispered between passionate kisses.
There’s something about his touch, that sets my soul on fire. No other man can make me feel like he does. It’s truly mesmerizing.
Plus, I’d be leaving for my senior year at Sims U without him, so I knew I had to make this one really, really count!
As Seymour and I began to drift away into the dreamworld, Seymour asked a strange question.
“Kinda looks like Barry has a thing for my sister, don’t you think?”
“What? Definitely not, she’s not his type at all…” I snapped.
“Okay, okay. If you say so…”
