The final segment of Sally's quest.
Sitting around the Love Nest one day, dreaming of achieving her lifetime's ambition and thinking about all the liquidity sitting in her bank account, it occurred to Sally that going to work, fun as it was, was sort of silly.
"Yeah, Chippie? Yeah, I'm dropping out of the scene for awhile; thought I should let you know."
"Hey, Sally, you know we can't hold your spot open. If you want to get on the schedule again you'll have to apply like any other newbie."
"Fine, Chippie, I can cope."
"'kay Sal, take care. If you ever want to drop by a gig off-book, you know you're always welcome. We can't pay you for that, of course."
"I'll be around."
That detail out of the way, Sally turned to her little black Rolodex. A million years ago, somewhere around the time Gina became a teenager, Sally had ordered a pizza, and chatted for awhile with the handsome pizza guy (a meeting that was apparently not recorded by the orbital surveillance satellites) and gotten his number. So she called him up, and not long after invited him for another little Party for Two.
She had him over again the next day.
And soon they were Best Friends.
He fell in love with her that very day. She felt all mushy and amazing inside.
Moments later, she was in love with him as well.
So Sally is now happy for the rest of her life, the warm sweetness of those twenty loves wrapped permanently around her heart.
As well as playing on the swings, Sally celebrated by doing some shopping.
Readers may recall that after Gina Raptor made her first Lifetime Want, the mysterious Dawson Day walked up to her door and rang her bell. Frighteningly, shortly after Sally made her first Lifetime Want, a different college student that she'd never seen before walked up to her door and rang her bell.
Lounging around the house enjoying the perpetual glow of happiness, Sally did eventually ask herself "what next?". She realized, eventually, that somewhere under the pervasive joy she did sort of miss The Scene. Chippie didn't have a slot on the party-guest circuit, but the Bijou did need a projectionist...
And of course she continued maintaining her precious relationships.
Even PermaPlatinum, one needs Aspiration Points.
She slipped effortlessly back into The Scene, and before long was again a leading Professional Party Guest.
So there we are: Sally Raptor, one of my first Sims and probably my favorite, finally achieves her first lifetime want (and her second one). Next she wants to be a Celebrity Chef, but a few other things have come up that may delay that awhile... *8)
