Chapter 1: Bridgeport's Apartment Life
Bridgeport is the bustling city; full of taxis, mischief, alleyways, bars and nightclubs. Bridgeport is the perfect place for sprawling young adults like me. This place has celebrities, the hottest tunes, high rises, fashion, vampires and fun.
Tonight is a late night, a usual in Bridgeport. The founder was Ebenezer Alto who founded Bridgeport at the turn of the century. Originally Bridgeport was a busy shipping town inhabited by sailors and smugglers. And look at it now.
I just love "The Brightmore" Club which is an underground Disco Club located near the city centre. The atmosphere is awesome; partying, drinks and love is all around. Even though I have only recently moved here, I just know that I love this place. Maybe it is the people or something else, it is just so different compared to other places like Sunset Valley, Riverview, Al Simhara, Champs Les Sims, Shang Simla, Twinbrook, Barnacle Bay, Hidden Springs, Appaloosa Plains, Lunar Lakes, Starlight Shores, Lucky Palms, Sunlit Tides, Moonlight Falls and Monte Vista.
My friend Devin Aston wants to make it big of the bigscreen but I just want to have fun before I'm too old and my other friend Wade Johnson, the poor Casanova of Bridgeport and I don't know what his dream is, it's too hard to tell.
"Hey Ethan," Wade called out.
"Ni-ce apartment you have, what do you think about the crowded living, man?" He asks.
"Well you know I've been here only a while and you know I like how everything is easier to reach, which is not like that at home."
Wade then quickly changes the subject to something he loves, "Oh yeah, the party at the Bridgeport Sport Zone was epic! The nightlife, woooo!" Wade said excitably.
Parties were all that Wade could talk about, especially when we weren't there with him, everyday he would brag about, how good that, those girls are hot, I didn't really care.
"Well I would have come but now I have no freetime." I tried to speak in defence of not going.
"Yeah, university is a struggle." Wade said, trying to agree with me, even though he never went to university.
"I don't go to university..." I told Wade.
"Hey, that bistro around the corner is open for business, wanna go?" I ask as I was feeling a bit peckish.
"Yeah, it sounds like fun and food, so let's go eat! Bon Voyage!"
"You mean Bon Appetite" I corrected Wade.
We went down the elevator to the lobby of my small apartment.
"That's what I meant yes. Man, the minute you walk outside it's nice and comfortable, why is there is no seasons in Bridgeport?"
"There is, but you haven't been here long enough to experience them and on that note, why there is not that many pets around and most celebrities have them." I replied jokingly.
"That's a stereotype saying that famous people have pets." Wade said in a serious tone.
"Yeah name one!"
"Flo-Flo Chique." I quickly responded.
"Damn, you got me. So you don't go to university, what do you do in your spare time?"
"I have a part-time job instead."
We walked around the block, 500 metres away from the restaurant/bistro.
"Um, at Wilki's Fabulous Books and Bath."
"Yeah that one." Wade responded all confused.
"How much per hour?"
"§50 Simoleons" I whispered to Wade.
"That's quite a lot." He said jealously.
"Being a Book Genre Sorter is fun and I make lot too."
"What are your days off?" He questioned again.
"Saturday and Sunday."
"Ah, the weekend to party." Wade acknowledged.
We arrived at the Steve's Complex Business and Restaurant.
"If you say so. This food is going to be good." I said with a growl from my stomach.
"Sir what would you like?" the waiter asked.
"A number one please," I replied.
"And you Sir?" The waiter asked Wade.
"Number five." Wade replied quickly.
"Anything else?" The waiter suggested.
"No thank you." I responded politely.
"We're fine thanks."
"So you want to call Devin?" I ask Wade.
. . .
"Hey Devin." I shout out.
"Oh yeah, hey." Devin said wondering who Wade was when he met him last night.
"So how's life Devin?" I asked.
"Nothing much, except Partying!" Replied Wade, rudely.
"So Devin, how is it going?" I asked again.
"Good, achieving my ambitions, I'm going to be on the big screen." He replied.
"Really, what are you doing?" I asked Devin.
"Uh, Background Extra." Devin replied embarassed.
"Well might see you for that split second." I said in a sarcastic tone.
Then Wade awkwardly asks, "Ethan, how are you parents?"
"Um, it feels like they are generations behind me but they are good, looking after Darlene and Arlo."
Then Wade bursts out again, "Wanna make it a late night?"
We all agreed, we needed some fun.
"So Ethan, Wade why don't we all go on a world adventure together as a holiday?"
"I think it would be an adventure of a lifetime," I replied.
"Well we need to bring along some 'pets' and some 'seasons'," Wade calls out.
"What do you mean by that?" Devin asks.
"Don't worry it's an inside joke with Ethan and I," Wade replies.
"Yeah it's just Wade being silly for once." I said to Devin, ending his curiousity.
"Yeah..." He said feeling embarrassed.
After the awkward moment, we finally arrived at my favourite club, The Brightmore.
We enter the massive high-rise building; we took the elevators down to level B1.
"What do you think of this place?" Devin asks.
"It's always a hot-spot." I replied happily.
The Disco Club was pumping as usual, full of Sims having a good time. "Where shall we start?" asks Wade. The only thing Wade could think about at a club was girls, girls, girls. He would always try but he could never ever score, maybe they were too smart for him. I never bothered to try; I didn't need a girlfriend just yet. I needed to secure my finances and buy a house, but they are always too expensive, especially the ones in 'the hills'. But Wade would never listen to my claims and I would never really listen to his.
It was time to party, I walked up to the dance and I showed off my best moves, I even joined in when the dancers were doing the Smustle! I was having a good time with my dancing was making me sweaty, having fun was hard work. I went to get a drink from the bar, a Spline Recticulator, it was cheap thanks to the Happy Hour sale. Wade then came over with this beautiful, red-haired woman with green eyes and dark but grayish complexion. I was still sipping my drink. When she came over I nearly choked on my drink as her hypnotic jade eyes stared down at me.
I had no idea what to say, first impressions are everything.
"Hi, I'm Ethan," I say to this this strange, mysterious young woman. I put the drink down, I was anxious to finish it but the look on Wade's face; he insisted that I talk to the girl.
"Hi Ethan, uh, My name is... Nina... Caliente." She said nervously.
Somehow that name sounded familiar but the reason just couldn't come to my mind. I swear I read something about her in the newspaper.
"So, what do you want?" I asked.
"I want you." She said flirtatiously.
I was shocked, by the looks of her face, she was definitely attracted to me, I then wondered if I should make a move or not. I decided to, Bridgeport is a big city, how do I know if I'm ever going to run into her again?
"If you want me, you have to work hard for it." I flirted with Nina.
"Ooh, I wouldn't mind if I do!" She replied to the joke.
Wade faded into the background as I now concentrate on Nina; I have to thank him all for this. But as I try to say something, Nina whispers in my ear something 'special'.
"Woohoo?" She whispered to my ear.
I didn't know how to react, who would be asked a question like this? If I asked Wade, I exactly knew what his answer would be...
"Sure." I whispered back.
We decided to go to my apartment as it was closer; it was getting late and I was starting to feel a bit tired. I quickly walked Nina to my small, cosy apartment. As soon as we entered, Nina dressed down and things went out of proportion. After we were done having fun, she came up to kiss me but she accidentally bit me on the neck. I fainted almost instantaneously forgetting the moment that had just occurred.
I woke up the next morning, sleeping on my brass bed next to Nina, I felt the bite marks on my neck; it was an unusual blemish, at first I thought it was a mosquito bite but I don't really know, hopefully it will heal. I just felt so odd at that moment, Nina seemed to not notice; she was too busy smiling at what happened last night.
"I got work today. So I have to leave soon." I told her.
"Okay, sure, I'll go back home, I still feel drained after sleeping in a bed." She said agreeing.
After Nina left, I called Wade and told him what had just happened.
"Really? Man, that's awesome!" He said excited for me.
"I actually like this girl, she's strange and mysterious." I told Wade.
"Well that's good for you. How about we party tonight at The Grind?" Wade asked.
"I'm alright, got other plans."
"Like what?" Wade asked in his curious tone.
I sighed; I really didn't feel like telling Wade, "I've got a date with Nina."
"Wow, you really do like her, huh. Fine but were going out tomorrow night with Ethan at the bistro."
I agreed, "Yeah sure."
I took in what Wade said, I really did like her. Her jade, her dark pale complexion, her silky red hair... Suddenly I hear the horn of the Carpool to take me to work. Down the elevator and to the car, it was only a short distance to work; only a block away but my boss insisted I had the carpool.
Instead of sorting book genres, I got too excited about what was going to happen tonight, Nina is going to be impressed, what I have planned will be too good to be true, for her at least.
