What Does the Fox Say

Take Me to the Moon 6.24

Previous Update / Next Update

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.

TS4_x64 2016-07-20 15-51-01-44

She laughed, breaking the tension.

“I’m Adriana,” she said.  “You’re Sakura’s cousin, right?”

TS4_x64 2016-07-20 15-52-05-67

Fox really didn’t know what to say, in answer to such a straightforward question.

TS4_x64 2016-07-20 15-52-18-72

He laughed and was trying to think of a topic of conversation, when Adriana abruptly ran over to Sakura and began showing her photos.

TS4_x64 2016-07-20 15-52-34-58

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.

TS4_x64 2016-07-20 15-55-32-91

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.

TS4_x64 2016-07-20 15-56-43-28

But he was quite embarrassed.  In the moment, he couldn’t even hear Sakura’s hoots and clapping.

TS4_x64 2016-07-20 15-57-02-16

His only thought, besides the burning sensation on his face, was, “did Adriana see that?!”

TS4_x64 2016-07-20 15-57-17-39

Sakura went next, quietly but gracefully skimming down the slide.

TS4_x64 2016-07-20 15-57-38-75

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.

TS4_x64 2016-07-20 15-58-47-60

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.”

TS4_x64 2016-07-20 16-01-59-69

Fox and Sakura chatted for a while, and were joined by Raven and Misa.

TS4_x64 2016-07-20 16-04-07-77

“Hey Fox,” someone yelled, “There’s your sister on the water slide!”

TS4_x64 2016-07-20 16-04-52-17

Encouraged by Sakura’s reassurance that Adriana was kind, Fox bravely decided to give the water slide another go.

TS4_x64 2016-07-20 16-06-08-94

But he wiped out again.

TS4_x64 2016-07-20 16-05-28-25

Fiona came behind him, quite adept.

TS4_x64 2016-07-20 16-07-38-03

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.”

TS4_x64 2016-07-20 16-09-38-33

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.

TS4_x64 2016-07-20 16-13-00-73

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.

TS4_x64 2016-07-20 16-10-36-05

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.

TS4_x64 2016-07-20 16-13-42-61

Fox got a bit flustered, and muttered something about smelling burgers grilling.

TS4_x64 2016-07-20 16-14-19-59

Fox found his cousins at the picnic area, but sat at a separate table, perhaps hoping that Adriana would join him.

TS4_x64 2016-07-20 16-15-18-21

As he was getting some franks & beans, she came up to him.

TS4_x64 2016-07-20 16-15-55-24

“Can I get your number?” he asked bravely, grimacing as he anticipated rejection.

TS4_x64 2016-07-20 16-16-14-69

But Adriana sat down, and started typing on her phone.  “Tell me yours,” she said.

TS4_x64 2016-07-20 16-18-35-32

She sent him her number by text.  “Text me,” she said, flirtatiously.

Gameplay Notes:

  • 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.

    Good post, It would be pretty cool if Fox and Grayson (When Grayson is a teen.) would battle over Adriana and maybe Misa too and Adriana will have to decide,

    I can never remember what Adriana Lima looks like, so I didn’t recognise the sim version, but I did immediately notice how gorgeous she was. Fox is a lucky guy to get her number. I guess she either didn’t see the belly flop or she saw it and didn’t care. 😉

    • True, I’m not sure if Adriana saw the belly flop or not, but Fox does have the advantage of the alluring trait because of his romance aspiration. Thanks for commenting!

    Serial romantic ? Oh boy! Is this your first go with it ?

  4. Well, Adriana is gorgeous! Fox looks a bit in over his head with her, but she seems charmed. What a cute story!

    Oh my, though! Serial romantic!?! He seems easily embarrassed so far (is that from his clumsy trait?), so hopefully he’ll find a way to build up his confidence to tackle that aspiration. 😉

  5. Cathytea, Cacey was a serial romantic (first aspiration) and she completed it. I don’t think I’ve played a serial romantic much since then although there are some in Simdale Valley.

    Laura, I get that feeling too- Fox hasn’t quite grown into his aspiration, but I guess he might eventually. I’m thinking of him less as a womanizer and more as someone who is wholeheartedly with whoever he’s with, you know? Like a serial monogamist, maybe?
