B.S.U. Campus – Round 10: ‘Something Different, Pt. 3′

Filed under: B.S.U. Campus — Tags: , , , , , , , — Mao @ 11:57 am

Damien proposes to Aiyana

As Senior year approached, Damien had mustered his courage enough to ask Aiyana to marry him. They had been dating steadily for four years and Damien was certain he wanted to bring her back to his family. Aiyana said yes without hesitation. She couldn’t wait to meet his family, despite all the weird things she’d heard. His grandfather and step-grandmother had raised him after his mother’s untimely death which allowed his father to run off and marry his true love.

Confusing stuff, to be sure, but Aiyana was born on a commune so it wasn’t that bad.

Sara and Nathaniel kiss

Of course, Damien and Aiyana weren’t the only couple to come out of the house. Nathaniel and Sara had started dating before he began his senior year. Lilith wasn’t pleased. She didn’t mind them together, but she hated that it was under false pretenses. She was angry at Sara for faking out and at Nathaniel for requiring her to fake out.

Sara pretended not to question her decision. She had been in puppy love with Nathaniel since she was young and now she was an adult and she had her heart’s desire. Sure, she had to wear a dress and pretend to care about girl things, but was that really so bad? She did miss basketball, however.

Damien confronts Sara

Just because Sara didn’t question her change doesn’t mean the rest of her friends didn’t. Damien was in league with Lilith. It was something they both agreed on whole-heartedly. Sara was being an idiot and Damien told her as much one night while they played chess.

“You don’t know what you’re talking about,” Sara snapped, turning away from the table. “Who says I don’t like this stuff?”

“Give me a break, Sara,” Damien retorted, moving his piece forward on the board. “I’ve known you since we were kids. We share a dad. I know you and this isn’t you.”

“Whatever,” Sara said angrily, moving her piece. She looked up at Damien, eyes narrowed, “checkmate.”

Lilith returns Sara to normal

“Oh, wow,” Sara gasped, looking into the mirror. She brought her hands to her cheeks and smiled, “it’s… it’s me!”

“Finally,” Lilith grumbled from the side. “See, isn’t this better? You can’t keep up the charade forever, Sara. It isn’t you. You can’t be happy pretending to be someone you’re not and if my brother requires that, then forget him! He’s always been a blockhead.”

Sara had to admit, the pants and sneakers were comfy, and the shirt brought out her eyes. Her hair was finally out of her face and she wouldn’t have to worry about conditioning it every single day.

“He’s outside, you know. If you want to talk to him.” Lilith offered, convinced that Sara would be happier this way.

Sara approaches Nathaniel

Sara found Nathaniel outside. It was drizzling, but not enough to put a damper on his activities. The ball bounced off the court and over to her. She picked it up and easily sent it through the net. Nathaniel looked over, stunned by both her appearance and the skill behind the shot.

“Sara? Why are you dressed like that?”

Sara found her resolve and took a deep breath, “this is who I am, Nathaniel. Who I’ve always been. The girly hair, the dress, all of that… it wasn’t real. I just did it… because, I thought… well, I wanted people to see me as a girl for once.”

“There’s nothing wrong with being a girl, Sara,” Nathaniel replied, giving her a look. “You can find a nice balance, you don’t have to be completely one or the other. How many adult women do you know who still cling to their tomboy days as a kid?”

“But that’s just it,” Sara shot back, getting angry. It was obvious he wasn’t going to go along with her change. “I like who I am and I like being this way!”

“If that were true, then you wouldn’t have tried to change in the first place–”

Sara let out a frustrated growl, “just… just forget it. You’re leaving after the weekend anyway. Have a nice life.” With that, she stormed off.

Tsung kisses Lilith

Early in the morning, Damien, Aiyana, Nathaniel and Lilith prepared to head for home. They took all their packed belongings and began stuffing them into the waiting cab. Sara had avoided Nathaniel all weekend and didn’t leave her room to see them off, Lilith had to go in to say goodbye. When she stepped out of the house, she was surprised to see Tsung. Everyone else was in the cab.

“Tsung, what are you doing?” She snapped, glaring. “We’re going to be late–”

She was surprised when he took hold of her arms and looked her in the eye and said: “Shut up, Lilith.”

She was even more surprised when he kissed her. Having done what he meant to, Tsung turned and entered the cab, leaving Lilith standing there, looking quite confused and dumbfounded.

Note from Mao: Whew, what a Uni round! Nothing compared to earlier days, but it took forever to play through. I have no idea why. Onto to Round 11!

  1. Wow, I’m so glad all of the couples hooked up. Aiyanna is pretty, I’ve always liked the face template. Tsung and Lilith forever! :)

    Mao edit: Haha, well, in reality the only two who hooked up and stayed that way were Damien and Aiyana. Tsung just kissed Lilith and Sara broke up with Nathaniel. ;)

  2. This was an awesome Uni round! I’m so glad that Sara finally realized that you just have to be yourself, hopefully Nathaniel will fall in love with the real Sara. And go Tsung! That kiss on Lilith was awesome!

    Mao edit: A hard lesson to learn, but a required one! We’ll see if they get back together or not… as for Tsung, well, hehe… seems he found one way to get his point across. ;)

  3. Way to go Tsung! He’s grown to be one of my favorites, even if he is a bit of a nerd. :)
    I can sympathize about Uni taking forever. Right now I’ve got 7 sims in college and even though I played the house all morning I only got through one semester. Three more to go!

    Mao edit: I use the college clock to speed things up, but it still seems to take forever! Poor Tsung, but he is a bit a nerd. ;)

  4. (: i’m Glad Damian Has Got His girl.
    So break-up between Sara And Nathanial..
    Does that maybe mean Gordon :)
    I really hope Lilth and tsung Get their acts together :)
    Wowee Round 11 already .
    i’m still loving it mao :)

    Mao edit: I’m glad you’re enjoying it! Lilith has a ways to go, but Tsung knows what he wants. Gordon and Sara are related, so that wouldn’t work, LOL! They would make an… interesting pair, though.

  5. Tsung is pretty awesome. How many nerds would do that? eh?

    Mao edit: Hehe, I really enjoy Tsung.

  6. Sara tried but it just wasn’t in her to be a girlie girl, better to be yourself. Hopefully Nat can learn to appreciate that and Aiyana may have grown up on a commune, but she has no idea what she’s getting into lol

    Mao edit: Sara really did transition into a dress, so I decided to run with it, but it just wasn’t her. Aiyana has absolutely NO clue, which makes it all the more hilarious.

  7. Amazing update!
    I absolutely adore Tsung and how he manages to be nerdy without being pathetic. The stunt he pulled with Lilith was pretty bold considering what kind of a girl she is – the boy has some real balls. Poor Lilith, though. After everything that’s happened, I bet the kiss confused the hell out of her. Can’t wait to see what happens next – round 11 should be extremely interesting…

    Mao edit: Aww, thanks! Tsung definitely has an endearing dorkiness about him. Lilith’s reaction will be most amusing…

  8. Lilith and Tsung! The kiss at the end was definately unexpected :)

    Mao edit: Hehe, he had the want, so I had to go for it!

  9. Nice way to kill the high, Mao. -_-

    Mao edit: Hehe, it’s what I do best. :P

  10. Oh wow. You’re updates never cease to amaze me. Poor Lilith is a confused mess. For a while there I thought maybe she would try some witchcraft to bring back her love. But if she can move on with Tsung, that’s cool. Though for some reason I can’t see them really truly hooking up lol.

    Mao edit: Haha, aww, thanks! As for Lilith… she has some plans of her own, but Tsung’s little stunt just made things a lot more complicated.

  11. I used to like Nathaniel, but if he can’t accept Sara the way she is, he is a total blockhead. Way to go, Tsung!

    Mao edit: Nathaniel isn’t bad, he’s just a typical guy. We’ll see how things go.

  12. Ha ha – I think Lilith is awesome – is she ever in a good mood?

    I think Lilith’s moods are different from our own. ;)
