Take Me to the Moon 5.3
Ewan had been surfing a creative tsunami. He had almost finished enough pieces to justify a gallery showing. His first show would be centered around the Tesla family faces and places.
Watching her grandson work had become one of Bella’s favorite past-times.
Especially when she could be near Elise and watch Ewan paint.
Elise was gaining more and more skill with the plants and Delaney was leaving their care almost entirely to Elise.
One evening, Delaney came home from the Science lab and set to work baking cakes for Eric’s and Desmond’s birthdays. Eric always made Delaney laugh or smile.
Eric blew out his candles while the family cheered.
Eric and Desmond both grew up that evening, to teens.
Along with his love of music, Eric developed a love for gourmet food and drinks. Desmond was now not only gloomy, but picked up an evil streak, too.
Everyone got used to posing for Ewan, and carefully avoiding the paints and easels everywhere.
One day, Desmond was out with Ewan, and noticed he was getting a lot of text messages. From a girl.
That afternoon, the doorbell rang, and Ewan uncharacteristically ran to answer it and slipped out of the door before anyone could see who was outside. Desmond peeked out to see who it was. It was a girl!
And Ewan was making her laugh!
But then he shared some of his melancholy thoughts with her.
As soon as he saw her face fall, he regretted making her sad. He asked her out on a date.
To his favorite spot, the Oasis Springs Art Museum.
She told him funny stories about her job at the office.
Ewan found himself feeling pulled out to a deep sea. And he didn’t care.
He bravely put his arm around her, and looked into her eyes.
When she gazed back, he closed his eyes for a moment. It was so intense.
When he looked up again, she was shyly looking down.
He started to tickle her to break the tension.
Suddenly she stopped laughing and looked back into his eyes.
He played “My Kind of Day,” a blues song he knew by heart, for her.
They went out on the balcony to breathe in the fresh air. The roaring water crashed over the rocks into deep pools.
Jasmine scent blew on the warm breeze from Zoe’s hair. Ewan couldn’t look away.
Their lips were so close
Ewan’s heart pounded as he felt Zoe’s breath softly on his lips.
After the kiss, they stood still and held hands, eyes closed.
Ewan was adrift on a sea of dreams that night after he took Zoe home.
Ewan went up a comedy level while entertaining Zoe. She’s a Cheerful, Clumsy Goofball who is in the business career, but I don’t know her aspiration yet. He really seems different around her! When he got home from the date, he wanted to level up in Charisma, too. I think he sees himself having a future with her. He also completed his Painter Extraordinaire aspiration. I have not decided what aspiration to give him next. He got the Expressionistic trait, so now he can paint any emotional painting any time.
Delaney also finally finished the Renaissance Sim aspiration, and got the Professorial trait. She can write skill books now. I decided to give her the soulmate aspiration for her final one. She has completed two of the three knowledge aspirations.
After aging up, Eric is now a Music Lover/Foodie, and Desmond, Bella’s youngest child, is Gloomy and Evil.
