Chapter Forty

The next few days flew by.

2!

Lucas and Melanie shared the news of their relationship with his delighted parents…

3!

And his friends.

5!

They went dancing together for their first “official” date.

1!

And afterward, Lucas found the courage to tell Melanie he loved her.

6

Lucas’ garden yielded no exciting results.

13

And Evelyn ignored him completely.

14

———————————————————————

The days soon turned into weeks.

5

Noah finally proposed to Camryn.

2

Lucas and Melanie spent the first of many beautiful nights together.

11

Lucas got a long-overdue promotion at the catering company.

He spent many long, unsuccessful hours at the library,

17

And many long, equally unsuccessful hours at Evelyn’s grave at sundown, pleading with her to come out.

16

But she never did.

——————————————————————–

Weeks quickly gave way to months.

7

Laura gave birth to a beautiful baby girl.

4

And Lucas and Mel were thrilled to share in their friends’ happiness.

4!

After years of fear about letting go, Melanie finally sold the house she’d shared with Christian.

08-12-15_6-13 PM

And Lucas began spending many nights a week staying over at her new place.

9

He still set aside as much time as he could to keep his promise to Evelyn.

15

But her silence had become deafening.

18

Lucas began to fear that he may never see her again…

Note: Just to clear up any confusion, that hot tub is at Mel’s house, not Lucas’! He’s not that inconsiderate, I promise haha

    My reaction to the hot tub picture: “WHOA! He’s pretty bold to be out there after dark with her in that position!” If he keeps expecting Evelyn, I’m sure she wouldn’t want to see that LOL.

    Also? I commend him for still attempting to keep his promise to Evelyn. But, what if he’s actually successful? What in the world is he going to do about her? What is he going to do about Mel? I mean, apart from being able to say “I told you so,” why is he even still pursuing this? It’s not gonna make Evelyn come out and talk to him.

    These of course are rhetorical questions 🙂

      Even if it’s rhetorical, I can answer one of them! Lucas is genuinely beyond selfishness at this point (finally!). He really feels for Evelyn and (as he had since he was a kid) thinks she deserves her life back. He’s the only one who knows how to help her, and he made a promise to her, so he still sees it as his responsibility (regardless of how things ended between them). He almost imagines it as “fate” — she is destined to live again someday, and he is destined to be the one to save her. 🙂 (this will be mentioned in an upcoming chapter!)

    I love this part! It’s so nice to see how everyone’s been getting along. And I think it’s heartwarming and bittersweet that Lucas is still keeping his promise to Evelyn to do something for her. I hope there is a breakthrough soon.

    I’m really glad Lucas still wants to keep his promise to Evelyn. That’s very nice of him. And I’m actually happy for him and Melanie even though I was on TeamEv xD

    I see many things that are not available in my game, like the cinema scene or the scene that Lucas is spending time at Mel’s new place with them both hanging out on the couch. What packs do these come from?

    • CitizenErased14 says:

      Hello! 🙂 The cinema was a lot I downloaded. It’s actually something you can do in-game without mods though — You use the command “SHIFT” + “]” to make something really big in build mode (and “SHIFT” + “[” to make it smaller). They made the TV HUGE to get the cinema effect 🙂

      Them on the couch was a pose I downloaded. I’ve been using poses for some of Lucas and Mel’s romantic interactions, because I got bored of using the same ones again and again haha. So that was a mod 🙂

      Thanks for reading, and hopefully I helped a little by answering your questions!

        Okay, this is gonna sound awful, but I don’t 100% remember the site 😮 They were on tumblr, I think? The one that you liked of them on the couch is a pose set called “Touch Me” by “Studio K Creations”. I bet if you google it you can find it! Sorry for not being better about keeping track of the sites I get stuff from hahaha

      Hi there! Thanks for checking out my story! I don’t remember the exact mod, but it’s called something like “remove censor blur”.

    When I saw that hot tub pic I was like, I wonder if Evelyn is in the background watching them! Thank goodness they weren’t at his house. I’d really feel for her if she were to come out only to see that.

    Well, at least he’s still trying to help Evelyn. I mean, I’ll give him some respect. I am happy for him and Mel. I do like her. I just wish he could hurry up and save Evelyn, too.

    I really like the pace of your chapters! They’re all very interesting to read of course, but I like how some are shorter, whereas the ones with bigger things happening are longer. Your story just reads so nicely, and the screenshots are awesome! (I totally raised my eyebrows when I saw the nudie hot tub shot! 😂😁)

      Hehehe threw a little sexiness in there, couldn’t resist!

      I’m really glad you’re enjoying the pacing! Sometimes I used to worry about consistency, but I guess I feel like you should just do whatever is necessary for the story! ^_^
