Round 7: Winter
Members of Household: Lencho Oduya, Nyack Oduya
Lencho could only stop and stare. Nyack was raking up the leaves without being asked. It wasn’t that Nyack was a bad kid or anything but what teenage boy voluntarily rakes up leaves. His parental instinct automatically went on guard.
Nyack knew he probably did a little too much when he looked up and was the guarded expression. But when he had the idea it sounded good at the time. Thankfully Lencho was just so happy that Nyack asked to hang out in Eaton after school, that he said yes. For a minute he thought his son was about to ask for a car, which they couldn’t afford, they barely had furniture.
Nyack was happy when his father said yes. A bunch of his classmates were meeting up after school to hang out and have fun. He hadn’t had a chance to hang out and have fun since his cousin Genet, left for college. He missed playing pinball.
The night wasn’t all about pinball. The establishment was showing old black and white alien movies on the television and a bunch of them had gathered around to watch. They had a ball laughing about the horrible costumes and special effects.
The night had went fairly well, no major incidents until he ran into Curtis Vincent. Nyack and Curtis weren’t friends, all Nyack knew about Curtis was that he lived in Oasis Valley, worked at Crabtree’s, and went to private school. He was shocked about how rudely the other boy acted when he suggested they share a cab together on the way home.
Curtis: Kid, I don’t know you. You could be some crazed teen serial killer. Get lost, weirdo.
As Nyack enjoyed himself in Eaton Lencho sat on the couch and wondered who he became this type of parent. He never imagined that he would be sitting at home on a Friday night waiting for his son. When he was younger his Fridays were always packed and fun. Now he’s Fridays were spent at home alone, waiting on a teenager to arrive safely on his doorstep. He felt minutes away from requiring a walker to get around.
That is how he found himself doing something he never imagined he’d do, for the second time on a Friday night. Walking to the phone and calling David Hale to set him up on a date.
Lencho had honestly believed that nothing could be anymore embarrassing than asking someone to find you a date. He was proven wrong after weeks of talking on the phone, she invited him to a play. He found himself declining because Nyack was going out with some friends and he wanted to make sure he got home safely.
Amanda: I could wait up with you.
That’s how he found himself greeting her at the curb in front of his house for their first date.
She was a lady and did not laugh when he apologized for the completely lame first date. In fact, she said she thought the whole situation was completely adorable, she even invented a game so they could pass the time, “Guess What The Teenagers Are Doing?”. They had loads of fun thinking about their own teenage years while trying to guess what Nyack was up to. They would have been slightly disappointed because his fun was rated PG.
They were both shocked and disappointed when they heard the cab pull up. They walked to the window and watched as Nyack got out and headed inside.
Amanda: He looks like you.
Lencho smiles proudly.
Amanda: Well….. I have to go.
He reluctantly help her into her jacket and walked her to the door. He would have never guessed that David had such good taste.
- I was tried of Lencho being by himself. Since my main purpose as SimGod is to make my sims reproduce and populate Oasis Valley, I used the Matchmaker Crystal Ball to find him a match. I had told myself that I wouldn’t use it again. But it is so tempting and he is so good looking.
- I really hope her name is Amanda. I lost my Round 7 notes and can’t remember her name. I tried to look her up using TS2 Enhancer but the photos were messed up and I didn’t see one of her. If her name is not Amanda (and she and Lencho work out), I’ll change it to Amanda. I really don’t want to do that because I already have and Amanda (Amanda Paige Schmidt) and I try not to repeat names, so it is good that I call Amanda Schmidt Mindy.
- Curtis hates me. I tried to make him friends with Nyack so that they could have friends in the neighborhood and stuff for story purposes. But Curtis is not having it. He refuses to get along with anyone. Nyack on the other hand has only 3 nice points but get along great with others.
