O`Hanlon 2 – Round 21: ‘Womanizer, Pt. 2′

Filed under: O`Hanlon — Tags: , , , , — Mao @ 12:36 am

Patrick O`Hanlon was enjoying his life as a bachelor, until one of his ‘friends’, Viola, came along and needed a place to stay…

The addition of Viola directly into Patrick’s life had been a hastily made decision.  He couldn’t just leave her out in the cold, but he wasn’t particularly looking for a live-in lover, either.  He enjoyed his women at arm’s length, where he decided what was done.  Now he had to deal with her everyday and sometimes, he even found himself feeling a little guilty at having other women over.  Guilt, seriously?  This was not something Patrick wanted to deal with.

Viola, however, had no qualms about the living situation.  She made herself perfectly comfortable.  It took her some time to find a job and until she did, she hung out in her pajamas and watched TV.  She wasn’t completely useless, she would cook, clean, and try to pick up some of the slack left by Patrick’s work schedule.  Viola didn’t want to be a burden.

She did eventually find work at the local elementary school, however.  It was enough to make her consider that perhaps she should looking into some sort of adult education program.  She found a love and fondness for children she hadn’t previously known of, so wrapped up in the glamorous styling of being moderately famous.

Patrick, meanwhile, had taken to waiting until Viola was either gone or sleeping to indulge his romantic ways.  He was spending more time with Viola than he cared for and so was driven to prove himself the same old womanizer he’d always been.  Virginia Saunders was an easy catch, too easy.  It was obvious he was grabbing at straws.

Alyssa would tell him to stop being and idiot and think.  He was intelligent, he could see all the signs, he just didn’t want to.  Patrick wasn’t in love, but he was becoming comfortable and comfort was dangerous.

Viola found herself feeling a similar uneasiness, though hers was not caused by confusion.  Her time with Patrick had been spent in haste and stupidity, for she showed all the signs of being pregnant.  She wasn’t sure what to do once she found out her worries were true.  Telling Patrick didn’t seem like an option… but she couldn’t hide it forever.

This was when Viola found it hard.  No friends to confide in, completely alone and forced to deal with something so sudden and unexpected.  She spent the first two months of her pregnancy lost in a fog of uncertainty and worry.

Despite his intelligence, Patrick lacked common sense.  So when he saw that Viola had put on a little weight, he thought simply that the sedentary lifestyle she led was catching up to her.  He would kindly suggest a gym membership or even some at-home pilates.  Anything, really, because the weight of her on his lap was becoming a bit painful.

“Have you gained weight?” Patrick asked pointedly, though not unkindly.  “You’re cutting off my leg circulation.”

Sade chose precisely that moment to barge in, “ugh, can’t you guys stop that?  It’s gross.  No wonder she’s pregnant!”

Viola’s face turned pale and the pain Patrick felt was no longer akin to Viola’s weighted form on his lap.  No, this one started in his chest and threatened to spread to his limbs.  In his haste to rise, he nearly threw Viola to the floor.

“What?  You didn’t know?  Idiot,” was all Sade offered, rolling her brown eyes.


Note from Mao: I really didn’t intend for Viola to get knocked up.  Why are all my sims getting knocked up, seriously, LOL.  This does not bode well for poor Patrick.  Sigh!  Oh, and Sade really did burst in on her own.  She has a tendency of doing that…


  1. Ahahaha!!! Sade’s reaction totally made my day! Poor Patrick, now he has a kid to worry about. Cheer up Patrick and look at the brighter side,, maybe the kid will have the purple skin too!

    I had completely forgot about the possibility of purple skin! Unfortunately, it’s doubtful. :(

  2. I love your use of Sade’s busting in to, ah, inform Patrick of Viola’s state. I love Viola’s hair and clothes, btw. Patrick did NOT get together with Virginia Saunders, oh my goodness. Gravy…Anyway, great update again, Mao. Thanks.


    Sade really does love to bust in at inopportune moments, but hey, now he knows! Viola’s hair is by Peggy, I think, and the clothes are from H&M Stuff Pack.

  3. OH NOES! Not Patrick!! I’m asking the same thing: WHY YA’LL Gotta get KNOCKED UP?! I figured he’d be off just enjoying life and not making babies! ROFL! Though, he did pick a pretty cute looking chick to procreate with. ;)

    Haha, and I even have my ACR options turned very much down. Crazy sims and their trying for babies.

  4. Ha, trust Sade to tell all! I can’t stop laughing at her – she’s so priceless.

    She’s a loudmouth, that one, LOL!

  5. LOL, you never mean for your sims to get pregnant. Have you messed around with ACR? I’ve noticed that after I made changes to each sim, I’m not having the baby boom that I normally have during a round of play. At 95 sims, I need a break, lol.

    So what is Patrick going to do? And poor Viola. But she could have taken the morning after pill. I think it’s either in Sim Blender or ACR, she could terminate the pregnancy with InSim as well. (If that is an option.)

    I am using heavily modified and lowered odds on ACR thanks to Laura over at Lakeside Heights. I can’t be bothered to set it individually for each sim, LOL. After Sara finds out, he’ll likely be forced into a shotgun wedding! As for morning after pills, etc I encourage the randomness. I only accepted miscarriages offered with inteen.

  6. HAHA. Ha…ha. I’m sorry but imagining Pat as a dad? Funny. And Sade…she just loves to burst in, doesn’t she? xD

    Poor, poor Patrick. LOL.

  7. That was hilarious! Wow. A family sim? Seriously, Mao. This has bad stamped all over it! And this was before she got knocked up. Aww, Patrick’s getting adorable in his blindness and confusion. I guess all your sims, no matter how bad, have a redeeming trait. Except maybe Thomas, can’t think of a thing for him. LOL at Sade. She’s one to talk, with her stripping to her undies on Michael’s bed!

    I know, really. A FAMILY sim. I had no idea until I moved her in. Yikes. Poor Patrick! As for Sade, you know she only points out the faults in others. ;)

  8. I like Viola, but romance sim and family sim is kinda odd and now with a baby coming? Sade’s reaction is priceless!

    Very odd, indeed! We shall see what happens… ;)
