~The man on the bench~

In the morning the sound of my cell phone ringing pulls me out of a peaceful slumber…

It is Christopher, he says he missed not hearing from me yesterday.   I feel those fluttery butterflies in my stomach again.  It is nice to hear his voice, I can’t help smiling broadly.  I stand in my undies on my front lawn and we chat for over an hour.   I feel so much ‘at home’ on my piece of land, that I forget there are no walls.  I hope the neighbours did not notice.

Chatting to ChristopherThis view is so beautiful, I do not think I will spoil it with a house with tiny windows.  When I do eventually have some money to get plans drawn up, I will make sure they add many large windows to capture the light and beauty of this place.  I pause when I become aware of the unconcious thought I just had.  I am making plans for a house?  I am thinking positively towards the future?  It really feels good.

Soon it’s time for my morning aerobic class with Agnes which I enjoy immensely again.  At work time flies by once more and I really enjoy myself there too.  I take the time to meet my colleagues.

Not too long ago this would have seemed like something impossible to do.  I only had one friend in Riverview who was not even a real friend and that was Skip.  But I do it… and they do not judge me, they do not point and make comments about “…that SAD! sim”… and I am proud of myself.

Reaching outI reach out and call someone…

I call Christopher and ask him if he wants to meet me for a late dinner at the Bistro.  He agrees, but says it must be an early night as he has to be up early.  I don’t mind, as long as I can spend time getting to know my friend some more.  We can chat for hours and never run out of things to say to each other.

Keeping fitAs I start to jog to the Bistro I turn around and for a fleeting second my eye lingers on the man in the distance… but then I carry on and in my excitement to get to Christopher I do not give it another moment’s thought.

HappinessChristopher and I chat about Indiana Jones movies during dinner.  Seems as if he is a fan as well.  I have not seen the latest one, and we agree to watch it together sometime soon.  It is so easy to talk to him, I wonder if I should tell him about the real me… my history.

I decide against it for tonight, it was supposed to be an early night and it would take hours to express myself the right way.  I think it is better to let our friendship develop some more before I am completely honest with him.  It is not a lie is it?  I am just delaying the truth for a while longer.

SleepI laugh at Christopher when I realise how tired he really is.  I am being selfish by keeping him, it’s past 11.30, we need to end the evening.  We hug each other goodbye and when I get home the moon is high.

I snuggle into bed and gaze at the illuminated leaves lightly dancing in the trees, it is hypnotising and calming, my eyelids begin to flutter and I drift peacefully into the Land of Nod.

He sits

Meanwhile in town… a man comes out of the movies and gets an unsettling feeling as he gazes at the man on the bench.

    She has the CrinkleWinkle look, doesn’t she? I hope she finds happiness…

      She does… though she got Joss’s eyes and his paler complexion. But Jon Lessen genes seem to be pulling through atm with the nose.

      LOL, he is made of good stock 😉

    That stranger/man looked evil. This is a very interesting storyline.
    I’m running out of time. I read both parts but only have time to comment on one.

    Now I wonder what will happen when she tells Christopher about her past and what that evil looking man is going to do.

    Will the innocent one turn out to be evil or will the evil one turn out to be innocent? I love a mystery.

      I guess only time will tell 😉

    Oooo, intrigue in the night!

    I’m glad that she’s able to find some peace despite what happened. I hope she can stay one step ahead of trouble here!

    • worsiedog · November 10, 2009

      Sometimes trouble has that uncanny way of finding you;)

      Thanks for reading again DB, are you having issues with your Foilage Family Legacy? I read something about that in moondaisy’s blog?

      • DB loves her Mac · November 10, 2009

        I’ve had days like that. In fact, in high school, I think I had a whole year like that. 😉

        I was having the dreaded disk authorization error, which kept me from being able to play, but it’s fixed now, yay!

  4. worsiedog · November 10, 2009

    Oh! I am glad! GRRR, you know what it is, the error’s are created to pop up just before a ‘new release’ of an EP so we are forced to buy it;) LOL

    Can’t wait for the update!

    OMG… He was there again? I don’t know what to think but “be careful chatting on the phone on the front lwan in your undies, girl!”
    Can’t wait to see what happens next! Well done, worsiedog! 🙂

    • worsiedog · November 11, 2009

      LOL… yes OMG he was there again! That’s exactly what I thought!
      He was a possibility for the storyline and then the game sure acts awesomely at times. But now I will say no more 😉

      Valentia completely forgets she has no walls all the time! *rolls eyes*, and when she builds her house it won’t help much if she plans to have giant windows all over to enjoy the view LOL

    LOL great use of the thought bubble with the hat! Indiana Jones, indeed! Well done!

    • worsiedog · November 12, 2009

      LOL, I am like the days of when Patrick Dempsey was not yet “Mr Dreamy” and ladies were still calling him asking for “extra anchovies” HAHA 🙂

      So ya, I was and still am a mega Indiana Jones man… but the man of all men is James Bond… yes… Daniel Craig’s patooshi is mighty damn fine *cough*.. but at the end of it all.. Sean Connery… he was ‘The Man’… incidentally a Eugene Levy/Samual L Jackson super hilarious comedy which I have watched more than 10 times…

      Anyhoo.. back on topic…art in it’s various forms is the best way I express myself.
