‘This’ Pleasant View - Gen 1 07

Previously on ‘This’ Pleasant View:
Cyd kicks Armando out. Ruyb is faced with a black eye. Darren and Toots appear happy. Mitch and Christina appear happy. Can there be happiness in Pleasant View?


Thump, thump, thump, thump…
Magic steps out of the shower and pauses. Her eyebrows furrow while listening for the sound to repeat quickly grabbing a towel and wrapping it around her.
Thump, thump, thump, thump…
It sounds somewhat muted, yet oddly close. Magic towels off while listening intently.
Thump, thump, thump, thump…
She finishes dressing, tosses the towel over the rack and straightens it. Magic tilts her head listening to the rhythmic pounding.
Thump, thump, thump, thump…

She walks slowly in to her halway and looks around. The sound stopped. She looks down the stairwell and debates on what to do next. The sound returns.
Thump, thump, thump, thump…
Magic jumps. Her hands fly to her mouth as she stiffles a girly yelp.
Thump, thump, thump, thump…
The thumping noise is jonied with a giggle she couldn’t hear when she had the bathroom door closed.
Thump, thump, thump, thump…
The giggling is relatively high pitched definitely female. Magic looks at the extra bedroom and glares at the door. Her voice is low as if talking to herself. “No one in this house is having sex if I’m not… how rude. Don has gone too far.”
Thump, thump, thump, thump…

Christina answers the phone on the third ring. “Hello?” She pauses and glances out the window. She bites her lip as she shivers at the sight of Mitch. “I’m sorry, what?” She pulls her thoughts back to the conversation. “Oh, right… sorry. I was distracted. Hmm? Oh, it’s just Mitch being Mitch.” She giggles and nods as if the caller can see her nodding. “I know right?” She suddenly stiffens. “Wait, how did you know…” Christina visibly relaxes a little bit. “Oh, right. Okay, so I’ll tell him. Mhmm…”

Mitch puts the mail in the mailbox and lifts the flag. He watches silently as an old man pauses to look at his house ignoring him. Mitch crosses his arms and narrows his eyes. He tears his eyes from the man and looks to see what if anything the man was looking at. He smiles at Christina waving to him at the window. He returns his gaze to the man and shakes his head. “I’ll be buying curtains this weekend… enjoy what you can while you can.”
He smirks at the man’s grin. Mitch grabs his newspaper off the porch and heads inside the house. The old man continues his walk without a second glance.

Heather bites her lip. “I’m so sorry.” She shakes her head and closes her eyes. “No, not sorry we made love… never for that, but we should have waited.” She looks around and sighs heavily. “I keep waiting for the doorbell to ring and I’m carted off for statutory rape.” She smiles and chuckles softly. “Well forget it. I don’t want you near the house for another four days. I don’t trust myself around you.” Heather pouts. “I don’t…” She shakes her head. “No, Alon.” She covers her mouth to stiffle her gasp. “No!” She whimpers and shakes her head again. “Please, I have nosey neighbors and if they don’t already know, they will if… Alon… no, Alon, it’s not-”

“So, we got off to a rocky start and maybe we need to start this again. I’m Dirk, Dirk Dreamer. Kid to the guy you are fixin’ to marry.” He extends his hand to her. Toots is taken aback yet is willing to play along.
“Okay… Toots Grim. I’d say it’s a pleasure but I’m not sure what game you’re playing.” She shakes his hand and he smirks.
“No game.” Dirk shrugs. “If I have to live here… better you don’t want to kill me, right?”
Toots tilts her head and eyes him wearily. “Right…”
“So uh, whats with the jacket? It’s not that cold…” He pulls his gaze away from her breasts to try and make eye contact.
“I’m traveling this morning.” She crosses her arms and watches him.
“Cool… so uh, hey that heap out here. You said its mine if I fix it. You’re for real, right?” He motions with a jerk of his head towards the driveway.
“Yup… you know anything about cars?” Her eyebrow quirks.
“Enough to get that thing running and I have friends who know stuff too.” He glances at it and back to Toots. “Mind if I uh…”
“Ya sure…” Toots waves a dismissive hand. “Listen I have to finish getting ready for my trip. I’ll leave the door unlocked for you just in case you get hungry or something…”

“Stay out of trouble, Dirk.” Toots calls to him before she takes off. He’s been working for only about ten minutes when an odd breeze whips through. He pauses and turns off the hand buffer.
Dirk wipes his brow. The buffer sound is still ringing in his ears. He looks over the car’s roof. He shakes his head as if he was wrong about something. He looks around and scratches his head. He heads inside to get a towel and listens for a moment at the quiet house. He walks from room to room and grins noting Toots is gone. “Sweet.”
Dirk heads back outside to put any tools away.

His cell phone rings twice before it’s picked up. “Babe… ya, the house is mine.” He laughs. “Hurry up then.”

“Oh before I forget, Nina called.” Christina glances at him from the book she’s been trying to read.
He sighs, scratches out something before responding. “Okay.”
“She said the wagon is at two… and then said you need a tan.” She giggles and shakes her head. “I don’t happen to agree with that last part.”
Mitch’s pen pauses. He chuckles and shakes his head. “That voyueristic wench.” He starts with the paper again: circling, scratching, growling, and sighing.
Christina tilts her head. “I’m going to invite them over for dinner.”
“Mhmm…” He flips the paper over and continues.
“I’m thinking about tomorrow night…” She tries again.
“Okay.” He looks closer at the paper, his eyebrows rise in surprise.

Thump, thump, thump, thump…
Magic’s jaw is set. Her mouth is a thin line of annoyance. She marches to the door of her spare bedroom.
Thump, thump, thump, thump…
She growls grabbing hold of the doorknob and gives it a fast jerk open to catch whoever it is in the act. You can’t deny anything if you’re caught doing… it.
Thump, thump, thump, thump…

Thump, thump, thump, thump…
Magic stares. Her mouth drops open. “What in the…”
Thump, thump, thump, thump…
She giggles gleefully. “Hi!” Thump, thump, thump, thump…
“Get down from there.” Magic walks in the room staring at the girl in utter confusion. “How did you get in?”
Thump, thump, thump, thump…
“The front door.” Thump, thump, thump, thump… “You should probably learn to lock it…”

“I’m serious, Alon. Four days is not that long and if my neighbors…” She clutches her stomach and gasps. “Oh, well…” She shakes her head. “Not fair… that’s so not fair.” She giggles and blushes. She bites her lip and sways on her feet. “Oh, um…” She fans herself. “Are you sure you’re only seventeen because when I was that age, I never knew anyone like you.” She laughs and shakes her head. “That is so wrong.” She leans against her kitchen counter her attention is caught by the package still sitting and waiting in her hallway. “You want to what?” Her eyes widen and she licks her lips. “Oh ya, on your birthday we will definitely do lots of that.”

“Took you long enough. Did you have problems with the mom?” He sweeps her in his arms. Lilith swoons and hugs him back.
“Not really… I had to shake off the bitch though. For some reason she wanted to tag along. I’m like since when and she is all like since now and I’m like no way and she is like I’ll tell and I’m like so tell, you don’t know what you’re talking about and then she is like it doesn’t matter cuz I’ll make some shit up and Mom will believe me cuz I’m the favorite and-”
Dirk kisses her to shut her up. She stops talking immediately to kiss him back. His mouth devours hers, his tongue invades and conquers. She stuggles to breathe and pulls away gasping for air. Dirk grins as if triumphant leaving Lilith dazed and nervous. “You promised.”
“Ya… I know.” She glances at the house nervously. “So no one is home, huh.”
“Nope. Come on. I’ll show you my bed.”
Lilith nods numbly and stares at the house again suddenly sick to her stomach.

“Did they say yes?” He glances at her.
“Not exactly.” She bites her lip. “I haven’t asked yet.”
He chuckles and shrugs. “I can ask if you want… or you can ask when they stop to pick me up.” He goes back to reading his paper and puts a big red circle around something and grins.
“What are you doing?” Christina leans over and looks at the paper.
“Job hunting.” He shows her the few red circled ads.
Christina looks at a few of the jobs he has circled and looks at him with surprise. “You’re going back to work?”
“Of course.” He chuckles at her surprise. “I can’t have my future wife supporting me. What kind of man would that make me?”

“Just because my front door is unlocked, that does not give you the right to barge in and jump on my bed!” Magic is fuming angry.
“You mean my bed.” The girl stops jumping and grins down at Magic.
Magic stares for a moment absorbing what she just heard. “How do you figure?”
“Yanno, for a reporter you suck at investigation.” She plops on her behind on the bed and swings her legs a few times before responding. “You didn’t read the card in the pink box… or you’d know.”
Magic folds her arms before her. “I did, too. It was rather cryptic though.”
“Wow, you really suck.” She throws her body back on the bed and giggles at her own joke. “If you can’t even figure that out, how are you supposed to raise me?” The girl sobers. “I’ve been put in a house with a moron. I’m doomed.”

“You don’t have to be scared. I promise no one will find out. You love me right?”
Lillith frowns. “You know I do.”
“Well then, the next step is sex.” Dirk runs a finger along her top against her skin. “Just lemme see. I mean, we don’t have to do anything. We can just get naked and then see… yanno, if you want to do more.”
“Dirk, I just don’t know…” Lilith hesitates. Her voice cracks and she cringes.
“Come on, Lil. If you love me, you’ll let me at least see.” His hands shake as he takes her hand and puts on his body. “You don’t have to do anything you don’t want to.
“Dirk…” Lilith tries to pull her hand away but he holds it on his crotch and grins.
“You know you want it.” He uses her hand to rub more.
“Dirk, don’t…” Lilith tries again to pull away. She cringes and fights back the tears. “Please don’t make me do this.”
“Don’t be a tease, Lil.” Dirk pushes her back on the bed and pins her down with his body. “You want it as much as me.”

“Your what?!” Christina stares at him as he walks away. “Mitch!”
Mitch chuckles and walks away. “I gotta get ready to go. The girls will be here soon.”
Christina’s head is spinning. She shakes it a few times as he heads up the stairs. “Wait! When did we decide this?”
His voice comes to her from the stairs as he takes the corner towards their room. “We haven’t… but that’s usually next after the moving in thing… just think about it.” The door closes. Christina closes her mouth and stares stunned at the room.
“Married?” The room remains silent. “Holy Simoly.”

Can there be happiness in Pleasant View? No. It's all an illusion. That's why it's called Pleasant View

“No one in this house is having sex if I’m not… how rude. Wait. When did Magic get a roomie?

What a little sneak that Dirk is. Hmmmm. What's going on with Lillith?

“I’ve been put in a house with a moron. I’m doomed.” What a fresh little mouth! I love it!

Oh that Dirk. He needs a ass kicking. Lillith is obviously not ready for sex yet. I have to wonder how far from the tree that Dreamer apple fell. And yes, I did see Darren outside of that window. I will bust a gut if he catches them.

Um, Mitch. Don't you think you should be asking her first? That kind of statement is a real put off for me.

{quote}Can there be happiness in Pleasant View?{/quote} HA! Yeah, right.

*blinks* Who is Magic living with, that Don is having sex with them?

*growls at the writer again* You and your frakking snippets of one-sided phone calls. I don't know about you, but I tend to at least say "Hello {name{" when the caller identifies themselves usually! :-b

*chuckles at Mitch's comment* Apparently there are a LOT of peeping toms in this town!

Poor Heather. And Alon needs to seriously just go whack off in the bathroom and leave her alone for a few more days. *grumbles*

Wow, I wonder if Dirk really is trying to turn things around with Toots and not that he's playing some sort of game. Uh-oh, that's what I was afraid of. *narrows her eyes at Dirk* Just what sort of game are you playing, bub? *blinks* Oh, that's it? Pfft, okay, whatever, so he's having his girlfriend come over while the house is empty. *shrugs*

Well, at least we know who called. *makes a face at Ruby* And at least Mitch isn't freaking out about Christina wanting to invite the twins to dinner.

Bwahahahahahah!! *falls out of her chair laughing* Okay, so it clearly wasn't what Magic thought was going on! *giggles* Of course, we can't see enough of the person to see who it is...

*sighs* I hope Heather stays strong enough to keep him away for 4 more days.

"Come on, I'll show you my bed?" And why is Lilith sick to her stomach? Is he pushing her into sex?

Aww, okay, maybe we've been wrong about Mitch. I mean, he's got some odd notions and he's definitely too controlling for me, but that's sweet that he offered to ask the girls to dinner if Christina was too shy to do so.

*narrows her eyes at Ruby* Now you're just being a stinker to be mean. Keeping that picture still cut so we can't see who's jumping on the bed. *throws a pillow at Roo* Wow, sassy thing, whoever she is. I look forward to meeting her!

No one will find out, eh? What about, you know, YOUR DAD, who's walking by right now? *sigh* Typically teenaged boy, with the pressuring. Oh, I don't see this ending well. *pinches the bridge of her nose*

Huh, you know, I didn't even catch that he'd said "wife". Not exactly the most romantic way to propose to someone though. Not that my husband ever actually proposed. We just sort of talked about it lots and then asked for my parents' blessing (NOT permission).

Dirk is such a BASTARD!!! GAH! I'll never see him the same way again!! *curses ruby for ruining her views of the original sims* ;O))

If Heather doesn't want Alon talking dirty to her, tell her to tell him to call me. ;O))

So ... each lady has to adopt one of the "babies"? Is that the surprise?? I wonder who Magic got. :O)

Dirk needs to learn that nothing that no means no and that goes for anything that *isn't* a definite yes, too! Grrrr!
