Chapter Thirty-Two

Lucas had the next day off from work, so he allowed himself to sleep in that morning and recuperate from his long night. By the time he awoke, both of his parents had already left for work for the day. With the house to himself, he decided to try out a new recipe for lunch (with the help of some of the many fish he’d been catching recently), and then went outside to transplant the tiny sprout from his pomegranate seeds into the fresh soil, and tend to the rest of his garden.

The entire time, he kept thinking about the new phone number that was now programmed in his contact list, just waiting to be called. Was Melanie expecting to hear from him? She had been the one to suggest exchanging numbers… But what would he even say to her?

As Lucas’ mind raced with uncertainty and indecision, he felt a brief vibration in his pocket. Probably Noah or Sam wanting a ride to go get their car…

When he pulled out his phone and saw the new text message, however, Lucas’ face stretched into a smile.

Guess my mind got made up for me… He thought, smiling to himself as he waited anxiously for her reply.

Serves her right for ditching you. Lucas wanted to say. But he didn’t want to bad-mouth one of the girl’s friends, so he kept the thought to himself.

Lucas chuckled softly, picking up his fertilizer and watering can and storing them away before heading back inside.

He and Melanie texted back-and-forth for the rest of the afternoon.

    Yay! CONTACT! With a human…er sim. A living one. I may be very unpopular here, but I hope there is a lot more that happens with Melanie…a lot more.

    I chose this for my throwback Thursday re-read. Ahh they were so cute in the early stages of the not quite relationship!

    As odd as it sounds I’m hoping that things go further between Lucas and Mel. At the same time Lucas should still resurrect her so she can have her own life with someone else.

    Now Mel decides to text Lucas. I love the use of the phone screens to show the communication between Lucas and Mel (SimCell? Awesome choice for a phone carrier!). Glad he’s making a friend, but how will he break it to Ev?

    Hmm…well, I’m glad for him in a way. A normal conversation with another living human is always a plus. I know I recommend it to everyone. 😉

  8. I just started reading this morning. After hearing this story mentioned a lot of other places I decided to take the plunge. I’m really liking it so far. Melanie seems like a really nice sim, I just hope that Lucas doesn’t try to have two serious relationships at once. 🙂

    I love that feeling!!! When you find someone it ‘clicks’ with and you spend all day texting!!! I remember doing that in the beginning–it’s so great! I hope he’s able to get out of the house a little more and do things that make him happy instead of worrying if he’ll upset Ev or not.

    I used a website called something like “fake iPhone text generator” haha

    Great observation about how Lucas and Ev both have no experience with anyone else! Thanks for reading and commenting ^_^
