5.35: Something

I wonder if this is how Papa felt back when he met Mama.

I’ve heard the stories before – Onkel Florian loves telling me about it. How my parents met while Papa and the band were on tour. How they spent this one perfect day together, and fell in love. How they thought they’d never see each other again, until Mama agreed to join them on tour. And the rest is history, I guess.


Sounds perfect, doesn’t it? Too perfect. I used to think Onkel Florian was exaggerating… Things like that only happen in the movies, right? Not real life.

Or at least, that’s what I used to think.

Until yesterday.


Remember Hope? That girl I met back when I was just a kid? The one I totally blew my chance with? I was so sure I’d never see her again in my entire life, and then there she was – sitting on one of the couches in the Cornerstone the other night. Can you believe it? I’m not usually one for all that ‘fate’ crap, but… I dunno. I mean, what are the odds?

Anyway, the second I saw her, I promised myself I’d make it up to her somehow. I felt like I had to. I don’t even know why I cared so much, but I did. So yesterday, I ended up finally taking her on that tour of the city I’d promised all those years ago.


I just had to get to know her better. It’s hard to describe, but there’s just something about her… And it’s not just that she’s gorgeous (or a model. Yes, a freaking model!). I can’t really explain it.

She’s just one of the most amazing people I’ve ever met in my life.

She’s so… fearless, I guess? I think that’s the best way to describe it. Five minutes with her, and you can tell this girl tells it like it is. She’s not afraid to say what’s on her mind. I really wish I could be as bold and confident as she is, y’know? And even half as passionate. She told me so many amazing stories about travelling the world, and all these crazy modeling jobs she’s had… I could have listened to them all day.


And oh my God, she’s so damn funny. I think my Ur-Opa Jonas was the only one who could ever make me laugh as hard as she can. It’s been hard to feel normal again, ever since he passed away… But I don’t think I’ve laughed as much in the past six months as I did yesterday.


Is this what they mean when they talk about love at first sight? Or second sight, I guess… Whatever you wanna call it. I mean, is this what it feels like? Is this how my parents felt?

I dunno. I’m kinda getting ahead of myself, huh? I mean, we’ve only just met properly like two days ago. We barely know each other. So I guess it’s still way too soon to call this “love” or anything… But it’s something. Something I’ve never felt in my entire life.

We’ve been texting each other back and forth all day, and we already made plans to meet up again tomorrow afternoon when I get out of work. Not like a real date or anything… Just hanging out, like yesterday. But I don’t mind. For once, I really, really don’t wanna rush into anything. Why risk messing it all up?


And next weekend she’s heading back home to San Myshuno anyway… That’s practically on the other side of the world. Who knows when she’ll be back in Windenburg again? I don’t want this to turn into some kind of stupid fling. Hope deserves better than that… And I’d like to think I do too.

We’ll see what happens. For now, all I know is I’m so happy we ran into each other again. Fate, destiny, coincidence… Whatever you wanna call it, this is the start of something amazing.

I can feel it.

    1. I’m glad you liked it! I’ve been having fun writing light chapters for once 😛

      Right now it could really go either way with them — friendship or romance. We’ll see! 😉


  2. Ohhh this is so sweet! i read both this and the preceding chapter together, and it’s just sweetness overload (but definitely in a good way!) I feel so excited and hopeful on Zayne’s behalf too!

    And I’m super glad that we can get to see a little bit more of the Plumbob legacy as well! Thanks so much for taking your break from work and giving us a daily dose of A2A 🙂 hahaha note all my !!squealing!!

    1. Hehehe I’m so glad you’re enjoying the sweetness! ^_^ And I am loving having Hope in my story so much. It definitely feels awesome to help one of ThePlumbob’s characters live on a bit longer. Thank you for reading! 😀


  3. Luc and Hazel had a too-good-to-be-true start to their relationship for sure. Maybe Zayne will share their luck? 😉 (romantic luck… not dying horribly in a fire. 😦 )

    1. Sorry if my original reply came across harsher than I meant it to haha (I deleted it now) My sims are more than just animals to be bred though 😂 I’d like to think there’s more than just procreating that makes a ship worthwhile, that’s all.


      1. It was fine! It just shows how passionate you are about the characters! I’m just taking a break from shipping this gen so I don’t put too much strain on the old ticker! But don’t you worry the Queen of Shipping will definitely be all over Gen 6😘 She’s just taking a shot leave of absence!


  4. Hahaha I’m so glad you’re shipping this so strongly 😛 They are cute aren’t they? I’m enjoying writing them 🙂

    And yes, ThePlumbob and I have had lots of convos about Hope’s personality so I can write her well 🙂 She definitely seems to have more of her father’s personality overall. She’s fun ^_^

    1. I think the sweetness is still there, but it’s definitely evolved! ^_^ And yes, Louis is actually her agent, basically. 🙂 She lives in San Myshuno but she works for Louis’ modeling agency 🙂

    2. Personally I think she always has – and still is – a mixture of both of her parents, personality-wise. Sure, she was a sweet child, but even as a kid she was also a lot more outspoken and daring than her mom was when she was her age.

  5. Zayne’s in love! ❤❤❤ When I saw the banner I squealed with delight. Please don’t do to them what you did to Mark and Jocelyn! Let poor Zayne find some happiness sooner rather than later. He really has had more than enough grief in his short life.

    *sigh* My begging is probably falling on deaf ears. We all got see your true evilness in the choose your own path…evil…pure evil. 👿

    1. I cannot deny my true nature 😂 BUT I do have a soft, hopeless romantic side. There’s always a chance it will prevail this time around 😉 Time will tell! 😛

      1. Hehe, you were so adamant that it’s not going to happen and threw Layla in Remi’s arms all of a sudden, that you crushed this fantasy. It became clear what ship you’re encouraging us to support. 😀


    1. Fabtiffsim: Asking the important questions 😂

      He did not. Before he talked to Hope, he had every intention of lowering his standards enough to bang her 😂 But then he had Hope on the brain and did not progress the date further 😛

  6. I do! Usually after I write my own so I don’t get swayed on my original response. So I don’t watch the Walking Dead, but my husband does. They have a show right after called the Talking Dead, where they discuss the episode that just aired. The comments after your post are kinda like that, especially because you respond to almost all of them.

    1. Hahahaha well that’s good to know! 😀 I wonder how you saw this comment though… I deleted it earlier (along with the thread it went with) 😛

  7. I wouldn’t call myslef a shipper yet, but I certainly do like these two together. Cant’t wait to see how it all unfolds. 🙂 Also, I started the Bloomer Legacy, so I have to avoid comments section beacuse of spoilers lol. Days are too short for all this great SimLit to read.

  8. They are such an adorable couple. I like how Zayne is filled with hope about Hope….because I am an evil pun-monster. This really does have amazing ties into his father’s relationship with Hazel. Like father, like son – even if they don’t really know it. They even both picked a girl with an H. And while Zayne doesn’t travel like his mom and dad, this time Hope does.


    1. Oh CeltyGirly this makes me so happy! I was afraid you were gone for good, and I am very glad you’ve returned! 🙂 ❤
