8.7: Fluke

Note: Couple of slightly NSFW/sexual screenshots, but no nudity.

———————–

Well, THAT was the most interesting GeekCon I’ve ever been to. Even more interesting than the time me and Zelda snuck backstage at one of the panels and almost met Austin Dunford! (Ughhh stupid security guards. We were so freaking close!)

ANYWAY, it was like a week ago now, but I’ve been way too busy to try writing about it yet (more on that later…)

So first off, I won third place in the costume contest, which was CRAZY. I worked my butt off on that costume, and I guess it finally paid off! Obviously second or first place would’ve been even better, but you know what? I’ll take what I can get at this point. Everybody’s gotta start somewhere, right? (Even future world-famous costume designer Emberlynn Rosebrook)

And speaking of starting somewhere… There’s something else that made GeekCon so interesting too. Or someone, I mean. And he’s the reason I’ve been so busy too.

His name’s Mason. We met after he asked the stupidest question at one of the panels last weekend. It was totally ridiculous, but it was so freaking funny. How could I not go up and say hi?

And I ended up being totally right about this guy. He was really funny, and sweet… And did I mention British? Oh my God, that accent! Unnnngh. Totally worth struggling through an English conversation for (with the added bonus of learning I’m a total freaking idiot who can’t figure out that “robot” means “Roboter”. Um, DUH).

Anyway, he was really fun. We ended up talking for a lot longer than I thought we would.

And doing a lot more than just talking too. Ahhhhh it was the best!

When he said he had to go, I was afraid I was never gonna see him again or something, since he lives so far away. But I guess his Papa grew up around here before he moved to England, and he comes back to visit for a few weeks every summer. Apparently this time, Mason decided to come too.

And I’m pretty freaking glad he did. It sucks that he’s gonna have to leave so soon, but I try not to think about it too much. Right now we’re just making the most of the time we have until he has to go back.

We’ve already hung out like four times since last week. And by “hanging out”, I guess I really mean making out.  And, uh… a bunch of other stuff too. Stuff I’ve thought a lot about doing someday. Some stuff I’ve even tried by myself before. 

But never with anybody else. Not til now.

And let’s see… So far, I’d say it’s been like 10% gross, 15% terrifying, 20% confusing as hell, and maybe like 50% fun and exciting? Does that even equal 100? I’m too lazy to count.

The point is, I expected the “fun and exciting” percentage to be a little higher… But it’s still enough that it’s worth it! Mason’s so hot, and he’s really fun and sweet and patient about all that kind of stuff. I feel like I’m figuring a lot out. I think we both are.

Mason says he’s only ever had one girlfriend before (zero boyfriends for me, so he’s already winning there!), and I think we’ve already gone farther than the two of them ever did.

We haven’t like, DONE IT or anything. But we’ve done other stuff that would probably give both my parents a heart attack.

It’s hard to describe exactly what me and Mason are… If we’re anything. I’m not sure if we really are. We barely know each other, and we aren’t even dating or anything. But he’s fun, and I like him a lot. So I guess we’re… Is it still friends with benefits if you aren’t having actual sex? Does other stuff still count? Those are still benefits, right? They definitely feel like it to me…

I still have no idea how the heck I ended up going from never having a REAL kiss to… this in like a week. Sometimes I kinda wonder if this thing is moving way too fast or something

Zelda keeps telling me I’m crazy, but I’m pretty sure she means it as a compliment. And honestly, I don’t FEEL crazy. It doesn’t feel wrong or anything. It just feels… well, all that stuff I already listed before. Terrifying and confusing and a little gross sometimes… But mostly fun and exciting.

I don’t know what’s gonna happen when he goes home. We haven’t really talked about it yet. Not that we do THAT much talking when we’re together anyway… We don’t really have to. It’s hard to explain. Things just sorta happen when we’re together. And it feels right.

I just wish we didn’t have to sneak around so much. We’ve only ever met up at the park — that’s the only place we can go where our parents won’t know about it. And we’ve usually gotta go pretty late at night… How else can we have any fun without anybody else seeing?

It’s just kinda hard though. I totally suck at lying, so making up excuses for Mama and Papa is SO awkward.

And the other night, I snuck out at like 2am to go see him and I swear to God, every step on the stairs decided to creak loud enough to shake the whole freaking house!

I have a feeling Tristan might be on to me. Maybe he doesn’t know exactly what’s going on, but I think he can tell I’m hiding something. He’s giving me these weird looks all the time. Annoying little-brother looks that have me secretly flipping out that he’s gonna tell Mama and Papa on me.

Joke’s on him though. If he says a word to either of them, I’m showing them all those nasty websites and chatrooms he keeps looking at when he’s home alone. That kid needs to learn how to clear a browser history! I’ve been deleting it for him like twice a week, but if he says one word to Mama or Papa about this, I’m willing to sacrifice my “World’s Best Big Sister” trophy in the name of revenge.

Anyway, I’m not gonna let myself worry about it too much right now. What would be the point? If the twerp spills, he spills. I’ll deal with it. And I guess the world won’t like, end or anything if Mama and Papa find out about me and Mason. Long as I don’t get pregnant or something, who cares? They know I’m not an idiot. I know what I’m doing.

And it’s not like they’ll have to worry for very long anyway. Once Mason goes back home, it’s gonna suck, and it’s gonna be over.

And who knows when the heck another guy is gonna wanna get anywhere near me after him? I’ve known all those guys at school for years, and they’ve never been interested before (they’re too stupid to know perfection when they see it, obviously. Ha!). So why would it change now?

Mason’s kind of a fluke, I guess. A charming, funny, hot-as-hell fluke. Meeting him was kinda like I got a nat 20 on my Charisma roll or something. Total dumb luck.

And I’m gonna make sure I enjoy it while it lasts.

  1. Ooo! Muy Caliente 😂 the fact that Emberlynn resembles Gigi so much, is making me think back to Gen 7, and how PheeGi had their ‘Seven Minutes of Heaven’.
    “there was like, way more going on down there than I thought there would be”. I loved that line so much! I couldn’t stop laughing the whole day 😂😂

    50% of me wants this romance to be a flash in the pan, but the other 50% of me is shipping it. I guess I better stay tuned to find out!

    1. Hehehe this was definitely a lot like her parents back in the closet! 😂 So much to learn and figure out hehehe

      And I can confirm that 50% of you will get your wish! 😛 Stay tuned to see which 😉

  2. Okay then….kissing to fondling in one week. Raging hormones will do that! I still like Mason…he is such a cutie. And Tristan is cute too.

    I love her pink room…it suits her. Haha. But she best be careful or she’ll be grounded for life for sneaking out!

    1. Hahaha yes, she got a little taste with that kiss and immediately felt ready for more 😬 She’s got a pretty good head on her shoulders but sometimes the hormones win 😉 And I like Mason too! He’s a sweet kid, though similarly full of some raging hormones 😂

      Glad you like her room! The base is the pink room Wagonfruit has made ages ago for Lila, but upgraded it to suit Ember 🙂 Hopefully she likes it too in case she does end up grounded to it for all eternity 😂😂😂

  3. So, who will accept a bet that one of Ember’s personality traits is “flirty” (or do they call it romantic in this version?)

    Also, will our beloved author purchase the “Great Kisser” perk?

    1. Haha that’s a pretty good guess of one of her traits! 😉 But I’ll keep the answer a secret for now, for fun 😛 Hehehe

      1. Also, upon thinking and writing, I noticed something neat: We’re in the last few generations 😦 Phoenix (the mythical firebird) gives birth to Ember (the hot glowing coal) maybe gives birth to an Ash (the residue of burning) maybe gives birth to someone with a Dust-related name and we’ve come on a huge mega-meta circle!

        1. Omg I didn’t even think of it quite in that much detail, but had joked on the sims forums about naming the gen 9 heir something with “ash” in his name 🤔 You could be on to something here omg

          1. The Phoenix and Emberlynn were on purpose, but I didn’t have any kind of direction of where to go name-wise from here… but now I might thanks to shamanarza 😱

        2. I will totally credit you if I steal this idea 😂 Phoenix and Emberlynn’s names were intentional, but I didn’t really have any idea of where to go from here. But now you’ve really got me thinking!!!

  4. She is exactly like her mother at her age. Oof! I do think she needs to slow down. It’s like she went full throttle like she’s missed out on something but, she didn’t. I’m excited to see her get into costume design.

  5. Wow. Emberlynn has definitely opened Pandora’s box. There’s no going back now, honey. And something tells me the guys ARE going to like perfection, especially when she’s going to be missing getting her boy fix.

    So, look out, guys at school. Emberlynn is coming for you! 😛

  6. Emberlynn is certainly an interesting character. xD Look forward to seeing more of her as a person. (I’m hoping Phee doesn’t find out about everything thats been going on. :O )

    Also, is it weird that I’m british but I can’t summon a ‘british’ accent in my head? I mean I can, but not the one I know she means, only my own inner head voice. lol

    1. Haha interesting is one word for it 😉 Hehehe And yeahhhhh lets hope Phee doesn’t find out 😬

  7. How old is Emberlynn? She needs to be careful or she will wind up pregnant. She is moving way to fast. She doesn’t even know Mason that well. She winds up pregnant Phoenix’s will blow his top.
    I notice she has not said anything about having feeling for Mason. It’s just wrong. She is to young physically and mentally. Just my opinion.

    1. Emberlynn is a few months away from 16, so still very young and yes, moving quite fast. Hopefully responsible enough to make sure she’s careful and doesn’t get pregnant! As for Mason, she likes him a lot as a friend and is obviously physically attracted to him too haha The next chapter will show us a little more of how they feel about each other.

  8. As a friend. I would need to really care for some one to do what they are doing. That’s me. I go out with friends in groups. I allowed to date I am just not ready. Someone has to respect me, value my opinion, and hold me in high regards or bye, bye, you not worth my time. My friends say I am old fashion or to picky. I tell them it’s my body and my choice and they are having sex just because everyone else is, not because they care for that person. Love waits.

  9. This is not okay! Ember is still 15 years old, and she really should not rush into this things. I mostly don’t agree with this because Ember has clearly said she still has some remnats of child-mind thinking when it comes to sex, AND she’s teenage Rosebrook. That combo is never good.

    Also, girl, once you go that path, you CAN’t go back. XD I bet when her britsh boy goes back, she’s going to start dating people (or doing those things she did with Mason) with much more frequency.

    Also, Ember only talked about all those things she did with Mason, but she didn’t say anything about feelings in any part of it…I hope she doesn’t start dating guys only because of their sex appeal!( Could it be that, because she saw that her parent’s life together is a misery she thinks that, giving yourself emotionally to someone is *that*, so, it’s best if she just keeps things superficial, so she doesn’t fall in ”love” and ends up like her parents?)

    1. Teenage rosebrooks are always trouble, huh? 😂

      This could definitely be the start of something… we’ll see 😉 And you’re right — she doesn’t really have any romantic feelings for him, but she does like him a lot.

      And, uh, you might be on to something with your theory about Ember’s feeling toward romantic relationships… 😈 We’ll see 😉

  10. Don’t start Generation Nine so quickly, Ember! Be careful, and maybe slow down to talk to and get to know Mason a bit better before moving forward. Maybe someone could talk some sense into Ember so she can see that she’s moving WAY too fast than she should be.
    Also, it’d be awesome for her to end up being a famous costume designer! Halloween shall fear her >:)

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNND MERRY CHRISTMAS! (well a little early but still) I HOPE YOU HAVE FUN TODAY AND MAYBE GET SOME COOL GIFTS 😀

    1. Ha! No one to tell Ember to slow down 😱 Her stealth and bluff rolls have been to good 😛 But yeah hopefully Gen 9 won’t be making an appearance quite so soon 😬 At least that’s a risk that Emberlynn has actually considered, at this point. I think if she and Mason do take things further before he leaves, she will try and be smart about it. Maybe. Hahaha

      And hopefully her dreams will come true someday… only time will tell!

      Merry Christmas to you too! Hope you have a great one 😁

    1. Thanks! I get only a little credit there hehe Wagonfruit made the Rosebrook house (and that room was originally Lila’s) but I did update the decor and add some sewing cc 😉

      And I had fun coming up with those percentages! 😂
