Taye Villalobos, Adult Fortune Sim, 2nd LTW Become Hand of Poseidon
Last round at the Villalobos house, Taye moved in with his Uncle Vinnie. Though he didn't know his Uncle Vinnie very well, they quickly formed a close bond. Vinnie, in his retirement, continued his womanizing ways, and Taye got a job in his chosen career path, quickly achieving his lifetime want of becoming a business tycoon. That wasn't the only victory in Taye's life, though. He also met a woman he found immensely attractive: Angelica Eich. Will Vinnie stick around for another whole round as an elder? Will he continue to get along with his nephew despite his nephew's uninterpretable desire to be monogamous with only ONE (admittedly beautiful) woman? We'll see.
Having achieved his greatest lifetime desires when he became a business tycoon, the first thing Taye wanted to do was quit his job. He was fresh out of college! It was time for him to start enjoying life a bit, and the whole job thing was really cramping his style.
His new true passion was oceanography, but he thought it might be fun to play professional sports for a while, if he could hack it. After all, he was still young, and all his time spent playing with the soccer goal in the back yard of his childhood home couldn't have hurt him too much, right?
Vinnie, on the other hand, was getting older and had achieved his lifelong desires. Sometimes, when he played piano, he could still feel the heat of the spotlight on him, even though his days as a music god were over.
His love of music didn't end with his piano, though. It was starting to infect the whole house. Sometimes, when none of his old girlfriends were available, Taye agreed to dance with him, just to make him happy...no matter HOW weird it felt.
Vinnie, forever motivated by his...well...nether regions, used his skill in his old age to his advantage. He was a frequenter of the local music and dance shop, always putting on his best clothes and playing beautiful addaggios for all of the lonesome ladies who might be in attendance.
The ploy always worked for Vinnie. Women seemed charmed by this cultured older man who could both cook them a five-star meal AND play them a concerto at the same time.
This method seemed to work well for Vinnie...
Occasionally, one of his old flames would pop up looking to get revenge on "the new girl," but Vinnie was ultimately unharmed, and that was the important thing, to him. He'd never exactly been one to understand the jealousies of "love."
And apparently, his somewhat questionable methods of "wooing" seemed to still be effective.
Even when, in the midst of a date, Death showed up, it didn't hurt his romantic pursuits.
Vinnie and Taye cried heartily for the passing of Santiago's last puppy as he hopped to the giant doggie heaven in the sky.
Of course, Vinnie needed some serious comfort after that. Women liked a man who wasn't afraid to show his tender side.
Taye, somewhat surprisingly, seemed to follow Vinnie's lead in the aftermath of their loss...only he sought solace in the arms of his one twoo wuv, Angelica Eich, in a hot tub across town.
So, while Vinnie vascillated between meaningless sex and alcoholism to ease his pain, Taye made a life-altering decision.
He decided he wanted to begin his life with Angelica and promptly dropped to one knee right on the sidewalk in front of the Villalobos house.
She accepted, of course, and moved in to join the family. (Our first Silvervale sim to become a playable, YAY! :D)
Angelica's Stats:She was a well-rounded and lovely individual for a criminal! Though being a criminal was a pretty good preparation for being a politician, she thought...
Unfortunately, the puppies-of-the-past seemed to be having a bit of territoriality about their new roommate:
Just for good measure, Pequito gave Taye a scare too...to pay him back for bringing a stranger into the house.
Angelica, after recovering from being scared nearly to death, decided to put her energies toward making a career switch, and she lucked out by getting an entry level position right away.
Vinnie's most recent date conveniently left another hot tub so the soon-to-be-newlyweds and Vinnie+1 didn't have to share a hot tub for their romantic escapades.
Vinnie was delighted to have Taye and his new fiancée in the house. It made him feel less lonely, and while Angelica certainly wasn't hard on the eyes, he also found her intelligence and drive to be infectiously appealing. It was possible Vinnie may have found himself his first true female friend...and one he had absolutely no desire to bed, only to have the pleasure of knowing.
[[Author's Notes: YAY! Angelica moved in, and I can't wait for she and Taye to get married and start having gorgeous babies! As for the dogs... I have NEVER seen such a mass-scale haunting directed at one person in my history with this game. It really was like the dogs were angry that someone new moved into the house. ALL of those scares happened in a single night. Poor Angelica nearly dropped dead. If the ghostly doggies can't behave in the future, they're going to get shipped off to the cemetery to enjoy their dirt nap with Santiago, because I refuse to have vengeful ghost dogs in the house when I have a pregnant woman there. Recipe for disaster, that. Also, I wanted to share something I thought was really interesting. Check out Angelica's friends:
From L to R: Tabitha Devivio, Lindsay Wade, Vinaya Devivio, random townie, random townie, Julio Eich.
L to R: Taye, Vinnie, Mariko, Janet Devivio, random townie, Brad Devivio.
When I saw this, I remembered I moved all of the packaged Silvervale sims into a single lot when I was giving them makeovers before transforming them into townies. This turns out to have been an excellent decision because now I can summon via phone sims I NEVER see in my 'hood, like darling Julio, who has been in oblivion since the day I installed him...perhaps hiding in a dark corner of a downtown gay bar somewhere. Regardless, hooray! This made me happy. Few bloopers for you!
That's very fickle of you, Taye. // I'm sorry, Catalina moved out something like 80 years ago and is now the living dead in another house down the street. Really, get with the program. // Did anyone else know you can get a body skill point for this? O.o I had no idea. // Ooooh,
