With 9 cats in the house now, Lena and Feli decided decided to build a little kitten nursery outside their house with a little cat garden attached to it. This is especially useful when the family has guests over, so the cats won't stand in the way all the time.
All the cats are happy and cared for and the kittens are growing up well. Absolutely nothing interesting or worrisome is happening in the Koyangi household this night.
Little Cami and Celine (or is it Clone? They look the same...) being cute.
Uh, wait... where's Feli?
At school? But Feli hates school, why would she go there at this time?
I already said it in the last update, Feli has a true pokerface, always looking like she couldn't care less about the world around her.
I know what she's planning though - she
Too bad that one of the teachers, Mr. Martingale, stayed longer this day and saw her attempt to sneak in.
Oh, I'm getting arrested. Whatever.
Even the cop is annoyed by so much "I don't give a damn" attitude.
(It's really hard to take screenshots of dark skinned sims at night btw...)
On her way home Feli sits in the backseat of a police car, which is so much more comfortable than going by bike. That's a plus at least.
Lena sees the red and blue lights through the window and runs out of the house.
The backseat of a police car is definitely not the kind of place you want to see your child in.
"FELICIA! What the..."
After the police officer quickly explained what happened, Lena turns to her daughter.
"You tried to do WHAT? Who do you think you are that you don't have to learn like every other student? Who taught you that it's okay to break into a place you shouldn't be at? You're going to become a criminal or what?!"
"Jeez, mom... Calm down, it's nothing..."
"You're grounded, young lady. Don't you even try to leave the house for anything other than school for the next two weeks!"
But you're only grounded for as long as your parents are watching, so the next day Feli goes into the bathroom where her mom can't hear her and asks her friend Lutz to meet her at the Salon & Tattoo Parlor.
Little "sims logic" anecdote: When I invited him over to the lot, Lutz said that he couldn't come because he had something else to do. So I sent Feli alone there instead, and guess who she met there? Yup, Lutz.
"Sorry, can't come to the salon today, I wanted to go to the salon instead" makes sense...
Feli leans over to him to whisper why she actually wanted to come here. Not only does she need new clothes for prom, but she also wanted to ask a little favor of the tattoo artist who works here. Lutz looks sceptical.
Leaving her cowardly friend behind, Feli goes downstairs trying to look like an adult. Excited and full of confidence she approaches the tattoo artist with her wish: a belly piercing and maybe a tattoo of some cat paws on her hips and waist, depending on the price?
The guy is probably around ten years older than Feli and his own tattoos seem to be lacking in quality and creativity to be honest, but Feli doesn't care about that.
"Uh-huh, alright. I don't have any other customers right now so we can do it right now if you're cool with that. I just need your ID card to confirm your age and then I'd like you to sign that paper..."
Hmph. She wished he hadn't asked.
"Oh nooo, I must have forgotten it at home... I swear I'm already 18 though! Lets just do it now if you have time anyway and I can bring my ID card on another day, yes?", Feli says with puppy eyes and a charming smile.
But tattoo guy isn't convinced that easily. Feli is not the first and surely not the last minor to come to him with this excuse.
"No, I can't do that. I need your ID card before I can do anything for legal reasons. Come back when you have it."
SLAP. Solving conflicts the Feli way.
"So you suggest I'm lying about my age?! I would NEVER do that! That's SO rude, I will find a different studio and tell all my friends to never come here!"
Now that was a reaction tattoo guy hasn't seen from a customer yet! "Woah, what the hell?", he says, unsure about how to deal with that angry teenager, "Yeah, if your friends behave like you do then I'd be overjoyed to never see them in my studio! Man, kids these days..."
Still angry, Feli stomps away like a 4 year old that didn't get her candy.
"Tsk, I can do it myself anyway!"
And so she does. Without the tattoo but with a DIY belly piercing she shows up a few weeks later at her school's prom.
She's quite the beauty, honestly. That is, when she is not being a diva and slapping people in their faces.
It looks like between start and end of the prom, winter has begun in Appaloosa plains. That bellyfree outfit might not be appropriate for the season, but showing off your new piercing is much more important than staying warm, eh?
I will put up a new page with the download links for Lena, Feli, and a few of the cats with the next update this saturday or sunday because I was asked last time :-)
In real life I actually did forget my ID card once when I went to get a piercing, and I also asked if I could just bring it on another day (though unlike Feli I was already 20 back then). I got the same answer as Feli did in this update and had to come back another day, wasting a few hours of my day and the money on the train ticket. :(
And, again just like Feli, I also did a few of my piercings on my own at home (belly and ears). But that's where the similarities end, I don't slap people in the face or get in trouble with law, I promise!
