Generation Two: Chapter OnePosted: May 3, 2014
Yay its finally here! 🙂 I’m sorry its been a little over a month, didn’t forget about The Moscato’s just been very busy. Finals are in two weeks, then I’m taking a summer class that starts a week after that XD Its going to be rought haha, 9-12pm every day for four weeks. I also have to do some job hunting and stuff like that. Plus, it was my birthday a week ago, and then my friends this weekend so its been hectic. I had create the characters for this generation first, then do some building, and then work through many distractions. But, its here.
I think this chapter will be relative in length to most chapters. Maybe a little shorter. There’s also a lot of dialogue. Also, there’s new downloads under the downloads tab. Please refer to my simblr for a list of CC used though. Don’t want to be screwing up your game. Hmm what else…….I don’t think there is anything. Oh, and remember that POV is from Clementine’s, unless otherwise stated.

After about a day of traveling to Apple Loosa Pie, I finally reached the address that my future roommate sent me. As I was traveling through town, I find Apple Loosa Pie to be a sweet little town. The people look so friendly and it seems peaceful. No wonder mom didn’t want to leave when she had to. I mean she grew up here, and so did my grandparents. Its so quaint. I’ll probably end up living here myself, instead of moving back home. When I walked up to the house, I noticed that it look aged and a little rough, but I wasn’t expecting anything five-star. This is college after all, and I’m living in the college neighborhood. It was mostly wood that was deteriorating by the minute. But, this was what I was going to call home for the next four years. Might as well get used to it right?
I walked up to the porch and noticed there was an envelope with my name on it with my house key in it. I started to feel a little shy walking in acting like I own place, but then again I do live here. I slowly opened the door to see if my roommate was there to greet me, but she must not of heard me come up to the door. I didn’t want to go parading around the house looking for someone, so I thought I’d call out.
“Uhh hello? Is anyone home?” I said aloud
I waited a few seconds and that’s when a red-haired berry emerged from the back room. She started walking towards me and then stopped and stared at me for awhile. I was starting to feel uncomfortable because I didn’t know what to say to her and she looked rather irritated that I called out. Great start Clemmy. I tried to keep my gaze as she did so I didn’t feel intimidated. At closer look, the girl in front of me was quite beautiful actually. She has perfect features and I started to become a little jealous because I’m assuming she’s my roommate. I could tell she had immense confidence because she didn’t take her eyes off of me. After what seemed like forever of staring, she finally started to walk over to me. I couldn’t take it anymore and had to switch my eyes to the ground. How embarrassing. I look like so stupid.
“Hi, I’m Strawberry Shortcake, you must be the new roommate?” she quickly introduced herself
“Uh hi, and uh yes I am. I’m Clementine Moscato. Nice to uh, meet you.” I stammered
“Oh good, I was wondering when you’d arrive. Nice to meet you as well.”
“Well its good you’re here then. I just wanted to go over some house rules, and things about me you should know because I don’t want you to be surprised or anything.” she snapped quickly
“Oh okay.” I said quietly
“First off, I wan to get an idea for your personality and see how living together will coexist.”
“What do you want to know?”
“So uh what do you like to do in your free time?” she asked
“Um, not too much. I like to write and read mainly. I’m an English major and am working on starting a novel that will hopefully last me throughout college so I’ll have a foot in the door. ” I quietly answered
“Oh what? You like to read and write? Are you berryin’ serious?”
“Uh yes. I’m not lying.”
I was so confused. She spoke so fast that she was a hard person to talk to I have to say.
“Well I’m only asking if that’s all you do because I don’t like to do those things.” she admitted
“Well I wouldn’t expect you to like the same things I do.” I replied
“No, you don’t understand. I’m basically the total opposite of you. I really don’t care about school, as long as I make the grade. I would rather live my life without restrictions. I like to go out every weekend, and have a good time. I love bring people over and being social. You don’t seem to be like that. That might be a problem.”
“No, its fine. Really. If I don’t like it I’ll just leave and come back, and you’re free to do what you want. Just because I don’t really believe in being drunk and going out all the time, doesn’t mean that it will be difficult living together.”
” I mean are you sure? I’ve lived with people that have said that and it doesn’t end well. I don’t want to end up in a fight. And I want us to be straight up with each other. Because to be honest you seem like one of those goody-two-shoes that is just saying that to smooth things over. I honestly do not like that. So please, just tell me yes that’s okay or no, I can’t deal with that.” she scoffed
“Look, Strawberry I don’t know why you seem to think I’m lying? I mean sure, it might get irritating, but its not something I’m going to absolutely hate.” I quietly replied
“Look I’ve tried to be nice about this and tell you but you’re not making things easy. I can tell you’re lying and I can see the judgement all over your face. If you’re going to live here you need to be honest with me. I thought we could be friends since so far everyone I’ve lived with has been a enemy, and quite frankly I’m sick of it. This is why I go out, to get away from people like you.” she yelled frantically
I couldn’t say anything. I was so shocked and confused. Lying? Judging? Those were two things that I certainly wasn’t. I never lie and never judge anyone. I’m the most understanding person there is. I didn’t know what to say. I just frowned and let her keep on going. I can’t believe this is how my first day went of being an official college student. I can’t even make friends with my one roommate. How sad. After she was done ranting, she just walked away like it was nothing; like it didn’t even matter that she yelled her heart soul out at the person she’ll be living with for the next four years. I could tell this was going to be a long college career and first semester. I only hope it can get better.
After I paced around the kitchen for hours, not knowing what to do, a voice from behind startled me.
“Uh hello? Are you alright?” a gentle voice asked
I turned around and was surprised to see a man that just walked into the house?
“Oh, hi there. Yes, I’m fine. I was just thinking things over. Sorry.” I sighed
“Well don’t think too hard haha, looks like you were deep in thought. Might hurt your brain.”
“Yeah haha, you’re probably right.”
“Anyway, let me introduce myself. I’m Almond Cashew. You must be the third roommate?” he questioned
What? Another roommate? I was told Strawberry was the only one. That changes things, and good to know. Oh well let’s hope this one goes better.
“Oh? I didn’t know I’d be living with two people. Nice to meet you. I’m Clementine Moscato.” I continued
“Well I hope we can become friends since we’ll be living together.”
“Yeah, that would be really nice. I already had a falling out with Strawberry.”
“Oh, you’ve met Straw? Yeah, she can be a real piece of work. Sorry about that.” he chuckled
“You get along with her?” I shot back
“Yeah, but then again I’m hardly here. I just got an internship at city hall and it keeps me pretty busy.”
“Speaking of being busy, I gotta run. They keep me on my toes that’s for sure. But, when I have time, we should definitely catch up and really get to know each other!” he said cheerfully
“Haha okay, well good luck with your internship and yes we should set something up sometime.” I agreed
At least Almond seems nicer and down to earth. Hopefully I can really get to know him. He seems so nice and like he wants to get to know me. What a sweet guy.
Later that night, everyone had left and I had the house to myself. Emotions were draining out of me. I just wanted to curl up in a hole and never come out. How can I live here when the one person who even talked to me is barely here now? This is going to be a hellish time living here. I just lounged on the couch hoping I’d fall asleep and forget everything that happened. But, that’s when a great novel idea hit me. I scrambled off of the loveseat and quickly sat down in front of my laptop. My fingers started typing away. Right away I could tell this would be fiction and the main character would be a strong female protagonist. While writing the first few paragraphs and character profiling I could tell that this Warriorist, the title I conned for her would be my ulter ego. Everything I’m not but wish I could be.
Later that night I came home from a walk I took to further clear my mind of the day’s events. Everyone was in bed, and it was quiet. I figured it was probably time for me to go to bed too. School starts in a week and have to get into a routine. I walked into the room I shared with Strawberry conveniently, and she was sleeping away. I frowned again. Hoping somehow we can become friends. But, tomorrow is another day and can only hope for the best.
The Last Day Of Summer:
Well nothing has changed between Strawberry and I. She still hates me with every ounce of hate she has. I’m too scared of a chicken to pipe up and try to say something. Lately I’ve been exploring the town and seeing what it has to offer. See the place where my mom grew up. Like I said a quaint, little town. Today I went to the beach. Sat down in the sun and enjoyed the breeze and salty smell. It was relaxing and the perfect thing the day before school starts.
I hope you enjoyed the first official chapter of Generation Two! Not sure when chapter two will be out, but I have it all written out so all I have to do is play. Yesterday I didn’t have writer’s block and the ideas came flowing so hopefully it will be good. As I said, downloads under the tab, and hope you have a great day!
