The Bloomer Legacy: 5.6 Party Time

“I can’t believe you chose to have the birthday party at your father’s house,” Keiko greeted Olivia as soon as she walked in.

“Thanks for coming, mom,” Oliva sighed. “It’s just that it is a bit bigger here, and there’s two bathrooms for guests, nothing else. I’m sorry if it’s awkward for you.”

“Oh I don’t mind being here at all,“ Keiko tilted her head back with an exaggerated back. “Although, if your aunt didn’t live in a shoebox, this would not have been an issue.”

Booker overheard the last sentence: “Well, if you didn’t take a big chunk of my family’s money, that wouldn’t have been the case…”

“I worked my plum off to get the money I have,” Keiko hissed at her ex-husband.

“Err, I’m gonna go check on the cake,” Olivia excused herself.

Luckily, the tension between booker and Keiko didn’t overcome the whole party, in fact, there was still lots of love in the room.

“My mom and dad are so embarrassing,” Newton remarked.

“Oh come on, I think it’s awesome,” Olivia beamed. “I mean, they could be my mom and dad…”

“Sorry, I wasn’t thinking,” Newton looked away awkwardly. “Oh, Diane’s here. She’s my girlfriend. My girlfriend!”

“Cowboy hats are all the rage now, aren’t they?” Diane looked at Alice’s ensemble.

“You look amazing Diane!” Newton sat down beside her enthusiastically.

“I know,” Diane said smugly.

“Must be the cowboy hat,” Alice smirked.

4

Chell sat outside with her little brother.

“How are you holding up, Booker?” she smiled gently.

“Oh, I’m great,” Booker answered. “I love this house, I love my job… you know. It’s all great.”

5

He stared at his drink for a moment. “Just great.”

Chell wished there was something she could do to help her brother, but she knew what he needed was time. And less obnoxious ex-wives in the house.

6

“I think the décor here is just tasteless,” Keiko went on.

Olivia turned around quickly: “Oh hi Malakai! How is it going?”

“Hey there, birthday girl,” he poked her teasingly. “Ready to join the young adult elite?”

“Pfft, like you are elite,” Liv laughed. “But I’ve never been more ready!”

7

First batch of cakes! Olivia aged up, gaining the Bro trait. (I wasn’t really sure what to go for, and I figured it would be nice for Ethan to have a fellow bro in the house).

Newton followed suite shortly.

8

Newton’s parents gathered around him.

“So proud of you my baby,” Chell hugged her son.

“He’s no baby anymore, sweetheart,” Knox smiled.

Keiko looked her daughter up and down; “I think you’ve gained weight, Olivia. You better hit up that gym your father made soon…”

Liv rushed out of the room and shut the door behind her, mumbling to herself.

“You trying to seduce me?” She realised she was in her dad’s bedroom with Malakai.

“Haha, very funny,” she replied.

“I figured a little joke could help your mood,” Malakai smiled sheepishly. “Sorry about your parents.”

“Well, they do have a talent for bringing out the worst out of each other. I wouldn’t expect any different from them…” Liv shrugged.

“Still, this is supposed to be your day,” Malakai said. “And for the record, I think the weight you’ve gained is in all the right places, if you know what I mean.

Olivia laughed.

10

“You know Malakai, I used to think I had a crush on you, when I was little,” she smiled at her friend.

“No way,” he laughed. “I totally had a kid crush on you! Why do you think I peed myself when I met you?”

“It all comes together, huh?”

“Totally,” he chuckled. “So… how do you feel about me now?”

“I’m sorry, I shouldn’t have brought it up,” Liv looked down. “You’re my friend, I don’t really feel about you that way.”

“No, that’s cool,” Malakai said. “It’s the same for me. I mean, you’re hot, sure, but we’ve been friends forever. It’s just not really there.”

Olivia sighed with relief. “You know, it’s probably me. I’m not even sure if I can feel that way about any guy. Or even… have you ever had woohoo, Malakai?”

“Nope, though not for the lack of trying,” he smirked.

“So you’d have woohoo with any girl?” Liv raised an eyebrow.

“Is it gonna make me sound desperate if I say yes?”

“Yes,” she laughed. “But I wonder… would you be open to a little experiment?”

11

12

“Well, that was…” Malakai paused.

“Awkward?” Olivia filled in.

“Well… yeah. But still, it was woohoo,” he grinned.

“I guess,” Liv replied. “It was a stupid idea. I thought that maybe… never mind. We’re better off as friends, aren’t we?”

“Yeah, I think so,” Malakai nodded.

“I’m sorry I almost made things really complicated between us with that idea,” Liv said.

13

“Are you kidding? I had woohoo!” Malakai beamed.

14

Liv returned back to the living room just in time to see Ethan blow out the candles on his cake.

15

The way he and Yenn looked at each other, even with the age difference between them. That’s what Olivia wanted.

As the party guests slowly started leaving, Liv found herself alone in the room with Diane, of all people. Still, they were friends, so she figured she could confide in her about her experience with Malakai.

16

“Well of course it didn’t do much for you, it was Malakai,” Diane exclaimed. “I bet he had no idea what he was doing. I’ve heard he’s not even that great of a kisser, let alone…”

“No, I don’t think that’s it,” Liv frowned. “It’s just because I have no feelings for him.”

“That’s plum,” Diane disagreed. “Feelings have nothing to do with it! It’s all about skills! I’ll prove it to you!”

17

And before Liv could ask how, Diane kissed her.

18

It was the best feeling in the world. Liv was reluctant to let go as Diane slowly drew back.

19

“Woah…” Liv was speechless.

Diane smirked; “See? Skills! It has nothing to do with feelings.”

20

Up on the terrace, Yenn and Ethan were watching the sunrise in the hot tub. Although Ethan was mainly watching Yenn. She was still so young, and beautiful.

“So,” he smiled sadly, “how do you feel about the wrinkly old man prospect now? Are you sure you don’t want to replace me for a younger model?”

21

“Don’t be ridiculous,” Yenn moved closer to him. “This model is a classic. Never goes out of fashion.”

22

Being an elder is not so bad, Ethan thought.

    OooOoOooo drama is coming. I feel a little bit bad for Newton but he’s kind of oblivious…definitely blinded by those rose-colored glasses. Ahahahaha I love Malakai. I’m secretly hoping that was a Try for Baby woohoo, because I wanna see their genetics mix xD I’m not really ‘rooting’ for Diane…something about her is off to me, but I’m glad Liv’s happy for the moment. ^.^

    1. The Plumbob says:

      To be completely honest with you, I absolutely hate Diane. She reminds me of someone I knew in high school.

      Lol yeah, Malakai’s facial expressions were so funny after the woohoo. And his underwear/PJs really made me laugh.

  2. carovnamaruska says:

    Malakai is fun! I like him much more than Diane, to be honest.
    And Booker! I didn’t recognise him with his new hair! That is so weird! I mean, ever since you mentioned it in the comments I considered him a Ken – plastic and perfect forever – so I was kinda shocked to see how much he’s changed 🙂

  3. Renée Lenore says:

    “Woah…” Liv was speechless. <– ICONIC. This one sentence paired with the image above it WAS ABSOLUTELY ICONIC. PERFECT. I will never forget it. EVER. I have such a simcrush on Livvie. AHH! I want to adopt her- a version of her should come and live with my SimSelf and Sugar Maple Bough- Shug and I are committed to each other, but we would LOVE to have another sim in the house.

    But really- Liv and her storyline gets me on a really strange level. I relate to her SO much. I remember making out with my ex-boyfriend and there just wasn't much of anything there- but the first time I kissed a girl… *sigh* I swear to PLUM I made the same face as Livvie. It wrecked me because she ended up not being a great person for me or otherwise and it didn't last but I still had feelings for her that I couldn't understand. Sometimes I STILL have them even though it's been over a year…

    LIFE IS WEIRD. LIV IS MY FAVE.

  4. Renée Lenore says:

    Also, I actually have hope that Diane is a good sim- but now that she’s dating Newton, and especially after kissing his cousin while they are technically dating, I just don’t feel so sure anymore. I’m pretty upset about Diane not being a pleasant sim, because I actually liked her from the beginning.

    Liv will find someone else, I know it. But in the meantime she DEFINITELY has feelings for Diane… and definitely doesn’t have feelings for Malakai- which I’m a little upset about because I wanted them to be together from childhood (mostly for genetic reasons, HA HA HA! I’m awful) yet I am excited about too because I love how not every boy and girl who are close friends have to be romantically involved. And also how Liv may not even be attracted to men at all… or maybe she is attracted to sims regardless of gender, which would ALSO be cool. 😀

    1. The Plumbob says:

      These two comments make me very curious about what you’ll say about the next chapter!

      I find Liv quite relatable too, she’s awesome. With Diane, something always rubbed me the wrong way about her, even though I can’t put my finger on why. Probably because she reminded me of someone I used to know when I was Liv’s age.

  5. Jes2G says:

    Oh boy! What in the world is Liv going to do?? lol (clicks next chapter after she says this was going to be the last chapter of the night…GOSH! Every time I go to read about these Bloomers I get kidnapped!)

  6. Hailey says:

    I was wondering how you would continue the legacy if Liv turned out to be a lesbian! Very creative–nobody got their feelings hurt with infidelity. Interesting, twisty chapter–I’m excited to see what happens next!
