Sims 3 The Wards (part 49)
Miles steps outside to practice his guitar and to avoid Sephora.
Immediately, he feels bad; knowing that he should be making up with his wife, not hiding from her.
Meanwhile, Sephora is inside enjoying the luxuries provided by Miles’ advance. The new laundry room is just what she needed.
She too, feels bad about the disagreement with Miles; especially her part in it. Miles has always provided for the family and she knows that taking the advance was his way of making sure they had what they need.
Out of the corner of his eye, Miles watches Sephora as she passes him to hang the newly washed clothing on her clothes line. He can’t help but chuckle that she refuses to waste energy by using her brand new dryer.
Aware of Miles outside practicing his guitar, Sephora is careful to avoid looking over at him. Just knowing that they are not getting along right now threatens to bring fresh tears.
Sephora hangs the clothes on the clothes line and glances over at the new car in the driveway, realizing that Miles was right, he did need a car.
Dazzle, totally unaware of the tension within the household, greedily chews the fresh food recently placed in his bowl.
Miles takes his mind off Sephora for a moment, wondering where Zawadi is and why she isn’t with Dazzle after saying that she was taking the dog for a walk.
He thinks about the smile on her face this morning and is sure that she is off somewhere with the mysterious boy that seems to have captured her attention. He grits his teeth in contempt.
Just as Miles suspects, Zawadi is still hanging out at the Owens household. She excuses herself briefly to use the bathroom.
Zawadi is thrilled to have new friends to hang out with, but realizes that she likes Mitchell much more than she’s ever liked a boy before.
This uncharted emotional territory makes her uncomfortable but at the same time, she likes it.
In the bathroom she finally gets a chance to let out the joy that she’s been holding in since Mitchell agreed to attend the prom with her. She stares into the mirror; face threatening to burst from smiling so hard.
Sephora turns her attention to her neglected garden.
Halfway through reviving her plants, her emotion gets the best of her and she breaks down in tears.
She has to find a way to make things right with her family.
Inside the house, Miles is feeling the same way. He knows that he should not have gone to bed the other night upset at his wife.
Sephora throws away a few barren plants from the garden.
It always breaks her hearts to see her plants die, but this gives her an opportunity to plant something new.
Miles steps outside, just as Sephora is walking back around the house to her garden. Seeing his wife, he’s determined to do something to patch up their relationship.
Miles hops into his car.
On his way to town, he passes Zawadi on her bike. He waves, but she is in her own world; not realizing that he is passing by. Again, she has a grin on her face that would be unsettling to any father.
She arrives home feeling great about her date to the prom.
