What Does the Fox Say
Take Me to the Moon 6.24
Fox asked Sakura to come to the park with him one hot, summer afternoon. He needed to get out of the house if he ever hoped to meet some girls.
Before they even walked through the turnstyle, though, he noticed a dark-headed girl, talking to Raven, who he knew from school.
The girl saw him looking at her, and looked over at him, their eyes locking for a moment.
She laughed, breaking the tension.
“I’m Adriana,” she said. “You’re Sakura’s cousin, right?”
Fox really didn’t know what to say, in answer to such a straightforward question.
He laughed and was trying to think of a topic of conversation, when Adriana abruptly ran over to Sakura and began showing her photos.
Misa and Fox made their way into the park, changed to their swimsuits, found the water slide, and got in line.
Misa made it look easy.
Fox ended up doing a painful pec-stand as he skimmed down the slide, which, if you think about it, would be quite a difficult move to do on purpose.
But he was quite embarrassed. In the moment, he couldn’t even hear Sakura’s hoots and clapping.
His only thought, besides the burning sensation on his face, was, “did Adriana see that?!”
Sakura went next, quietly but gracefully skimming down the slide.
Fox sat at the poolside, instead of rejoining the line, hoping to regain his composure in the least obvious way possible
Plus, it gave him an opportunity to watch Adriana attack the slide without having to poke his head around everyone in line.
Sakura saw Fox and joined him at the poolside after her slide.
“Did Adriana see me wipe out?” he asked anxiously.
Sakura answered she didn’t think so… and she didn’t tell him, but she didn’t think Adriana really noticed Fox anyway.
To him she added, “She’s nice, Fox. I don’t think she’d laugh at anybody.”
Fox and Sakura chatted for a while, and were joined by Raven and Misa.
“Hey Fox,” someone yelled, “There’s your sister on the water slide!”
Encouraged by Sakura’s reassurance that Adriana was kind, Fox bravely decided to give the water slide another go.
But he wiped out again.
Fiona came behind him, quite adept.
The next time Fox was in line with Adriana, he decided to take advantage of the chance to talk to her. Perhaps he wasn’t going to be able to impress her with his daring and skill on the slide, anyway. Definitely not impressive in the area of skill, he thought.
“Good slide,” he said, referring to her last one.
“I think I’m quitting for now,” she said. “It’s getting dark.”
Only Fiona and one other guy were still sliding.
Fox pointed out that this was their opportunity to slide without waiting in line, but Adriana just gave him a smile and turned and sat on the edge of the pool.
Adriana gave a colorful rendition of her last couple of slides, and Fox listened, too enamored with her dark eyes to laugh at her extreme facial expressions.
Adriana looked up, noticing that he was sort of staring at her. She was used to people telling her she was pretty, and gawking. She thought he was sweet, and so she turned on the charm.
Fox got a bit flustered, and muttered something about smelling burgers grilling.
Fox found his cousins at the picnic area, but sat at a separate table, perhaps hoping that Adriana would join him.
As he was getting some franks & beans, she came up to him.
“Can I get your number?” he asked bravely, grimacing as he anticipated rejection.
But Adriana sat down, and started typing on her phone. “Tell me yours,” she said.
She sent him her number by text. “Text me,” she said, flirtatiously.
- This venue is the beautiful Arcadia Park lot from Jenba’s Blythe Harbor, placed in the big lot in the middle of Willow Creek. She’s uploaded the whole save file for download (link above), or you can get the lots from the Gallery. Her Origin ID is Silrosse.
- Fox rolled for the Serial Romantic aspiration, and his first goal is have a girlfriend. Raven and Adriana were the only two teen girls that weren’t his relatives, at the park, and Adriana has the romantic trait. It was funny seeing how awkward he was though; he has the clumsy trait and it really made sliding difficult for him.
- Adriana is from a household I downloaded (and aged down to teen), to have romantic interests for Fox and later, Grayson. You may recognize her, she’s based on Adriana Lima, the Victoria’s Secret model. I can’t find the household on the online gallery (outside the game) to provide the link here, but the creator is miss_coraline and the household is called TopVictoriaSecretModels.
