Pleasant People Volume 1
Welcome to Pleasantview, one of the most well-known and
beloved neighborhood in the Sims 2 world. This volume
will follow the lives of the town's current generation.
Chapter 1 - Aye, Caliente
“When are you ever gonna give it up Dina? Dating rich, old men?”
Nina asks her sister as they relax on the rooftop of their new condo.
“Women who look like us are just like expensive cars to them.
They take us out for a couple of spins just to show people off
every once in a while. They don’t care about our needs. Look at
Donald Trump. Have you ever seen his wife smile?”
“Michael wasn’t like that. I loved him, okay? And he loved me,”
Dina replies with her usual innocent voice.
“Well, he didn’t love you enough to leave his inheritance to you.
Leaving all of his money to his sister, what was he thinking?
It’s not like Bella needed anymore money either. Her family is loaded.
And look what we’re stuck with?" Nina looks down at the condo from her chair.
"It’s good that she disappeared, that Bella,” Nina finished.
“Don’t say that Nina. You heard what the lawyer said.
Michael hadn’t updated his will when we married,” Dina continues,
“Poor Mortimer, though. He really did love his wife.”
“Ha. You couldn't care less! I know you, Dina. You’re not as dumb
as most people think… unfortunately,” Nina says as her sister grins.
“You’re gonna make a move on him aren’t you??” asks Nina, though she
already knows the answer. Like she said, she knows her sister all too well.
Dina shrugs when the doorbell rings, “Mortimer! He's here, Nina!”
Nina shakes her head. If Dina uses the brainpower she devotes to
getting rich men into being an actress she always wanted to be,
they wouldn't be living in this mess of a condo. “Well I’m gonna leave
you two alone. I’m going for a walk.”
Dina runs downstairs to greet her new lover, "Oh, Morty. I've missed you!"

Please don't mind the quality of the flashback pictures. I was
in a rush. Well, sorta. I will have better pictures up next time
(for the sake of your eyes and my own obsessive compulsiveness)
Chapter 2 - Last Night with the Belle Part I
What really happened on the night of Bella Goth's disappearance?
Don Lothario isn’t much of a one-gal pal. And why should he be?
He's basically a chick magnet! Don is young, attractive,
and charismatic, not to mention his career is on the rise.
With that said, Don’s popularity amongst the town has significantly
declined ever since rumors of his involvement in the disappearance
Bella Goth had surfaced. The beautiful socialite was last seen on
Don’s rooftop on the night she went missing. No one had a clue about
what happen... until now
Don's interview with the law enforcement is made public for
the first time to clear up the misconceptions. Don is no longer
the suspect and he's bound to proof to the town that he is
innocent and earn his reputation back.
His account of the night according to his interview with Officer Dorian:
“I was making a double martini for myself after a long day of work
on the balcony when somebody knocked on the door. I thought it
was Kaylynn, the maid, because she'd left her umm… cleaning…
utensils here earlier in the day,” Don nervously stuttered.
“But it was Bella. I was very surprised. We haven’t talked much.
Only at her charity events and sometimes when I go over to the
mansion for her daughter,” he paused, "my fiance."
“Anyways, I let her in. She said she wanted to congratulate me
on my engagement with Cassandra." Don continues.
"I knew that’s not the reason she was here though. I could tell she was
crying earlier. Her eyes were puffy. She looked very depressed, officer."
"So I invited her up to the balcony for some drinks I made earlier,
maybe help her clear her mind off things."
"Then what happened?" asked the officer.
Chapter 2 - Last Night with the Belle Part II will be posted soon.

i really enjoyed your story. cant wait for an update!
|10th Feb 2009, 7:04 AM||#7|
Are we gonna get an update soon? I'm so curious about how this story is going to go.
|11th Feb 2009, 12:48 AM||#8|
Ahh. I haven't updated the story since forever! Ahaha. I have a pretty good excuse though. Have you ever played Sims 2 let alone use a laptop without a mouse? Yeah, that's what I have to do for the last two weeks. Sighs. Anyways, I want to thank you all for all the nice comments. I'm posting the next part in a couple of hours! How exciting! Weeeee.
|12th Feb 2009, 3:51 AM||CH02 (Part II) #9|
Yay! Finally! I've been busy with school and the like so I haven't updated
in a while. And like I said before, having no mouse sucks when you're using
a laptop. So that's another reason. But I'm back now! Yay!! I miss writing
these awful soap operas. Haha. Don't you just love Pleasentview characters?
Chapter 2 - Last Night with the Belle II
Don Lothario continues his recollection of the night:
“We got to talking and she told me that she was
having problems with Mortimer, her husband.”
“Bella was crying. She said he was always occupied with his studies…
something about communication with the dead. She said he was never
home,” Don continues, “In my own way, I understood her, you know.
I can imagine feeling lonely, especially in this town.”
“I consoled her. I told her everything was going to work out.
At that moment, when I hugged her.. All I could think about was
how much fragile she was. I felt like she needed me."
After she calmed down a little, we had a couple of drinks and
she wanted to take a look through my telescope," Back to his own
element, Don winked at the officer, who in turn rolled his eyes.
"Ahhha. Really though, we went up to the rooftop," Don collected himself.
"So I stayed up there with her. We were looking at the sky at first but
Bella wanted to mess around and peek at the neighbors,” Don grins as
he tells the story.
“We saw Daniel Pleasant. He was doing it with some brunette
girl who must have been half his age,” Don chuckled. “It certainly
wasn’t his wife, that’s for sure.”
“We laughed, our eyes locked, and the next thing you know it happened."
"I couldn't control it. She was beautiful. And she deserved better than
that crazy scientist. Everyone knows she only stayed with him for the kids."
"You do remember that one of her kids is your fiance, Mr. Lothario?" The officer reminded him.
Don sat still on his faux leather couch for a while, looking down at his feet.
"I loved Bella," He finally said. "I love her. I've been secretly in love with
her ever since I met her. Now she'll never get to know how I feel about her
because she's gone. She's gone."
Was that a tear in a corner of Don's eyes we see?
Looks like we found the kryptonite of this infamous lothario.Too bad
the scandal-magnet socialite isn't here to enjoy this moment.
There is a Part III for Chapter 2. Stay tune!

|2nd Mar 2009, 6:43 AM||CH02 (Part III) #13|
Ahh! Here we go. Another update. Last part to
this chapter. Gosh finally! Haha. Enjoy, my loves.
Chapter 2 - Last Night with the Belle Part III
Don continued, "Anyways, one thing leads to another."
"We ended up going into my bedroom and we've done things that we shouldn't have done. Some adult things."
"Alright, alright. No need to emphasize." Says the officer, shaking his head.
"After we did it, Bella felt so guilty about what we’ve done."
"She kept saying sorry. She said, 'I'm sorry. I shouldn't have
done this to you. To my daughter. To my husband. I'm sorry.
I'm so, so sorry.' She kept saying that."
"I kept telling her it was okay. That it was nothing. It wasn’t
her fault. She kept saying sorry. She got up and got her clothes.
To be honest, I've never seen anyone get dressed that fast before.
I'm usually the one to.. you know.. It was kind of impressive."
"I ran after her while she was running out the door." Don paused.
"Her last words to me were, 'Take care of my daughter. I trust you,
Don, you're a great guy' and she was out of my sight."
No one has seen Bella Goth since. The police believed
Don was sincere and concluded that she ran away because
she felt guilty for cheating on her husband with her daughter’s fiancé.
The police promised to keep the investigation but with the crimes
that have been going on lately, there seems to be more things
going on in town that concerns the police than a runaway person,
even if that person is Bella.
Don decided the right thing to do was to keep his relationship with
Cassandra. For Bella's sake. Besides, Sandra is kind of hot... In her
mysterious, quiet way.
Chapter 3 - The Renovation will be posted very soon!
Also, thank you so much for the positive feedbacks!

Keep it up!

|15th Mar 2009, 4:38 AM||CH03 Brandi Express #20|
Hi! I decided to postpone the original chapter 3 (The Renovation)
because of the time line. But I hope you enjoy this one!
Chapter 3 – Brandi Express
"Hi there! Welcome to Brandi Express, what would you like today?"
Brandi Broke smiles charmingly at a customer as he gazes at the
"We have the classic hamburgers, roasted turkeys, the chef salad
and for dessert we have cheesecakes, baked alaska and
our signature chocolate cake is also really popular."
Business has been great today. Of course, Brandi hasn't
always been so cheery. Her husband and high school sweetheart,
Skip, passed away during a freak pool ladder accident,
leaving her pregnant, with two children and virtually no money.
For a long while, she was mad at her husband for leaving her with
the burden. But with the encouragement of her friends, Brandi has
rediscovered the talent and joy in cooking. She decided to launch
a little to-go restaurant right in her own home and it has proven
to be a great success so far.
And to put the last chapter of her life behind, Brandi plans to save
up money to buy a real restaurant and a new home for her family.
"Dina! Hi! This is a pleasant surprise!"
"How are you? It’s been a while."
"I'm doing great. The place is really taking off!
Are you here to support me, pretty face?”
"Haha, sure! I'll have one of your famous layered cakes please,"
Dina answers, “Oh before I forget, are you free tonight? Morty,
Nina, and I are going out. Morty’s made a reservation at Londonst.
And we’d love it if you come.”
Oh, a night out, Brandi has been dying for a night out lately!
But the kids! Is it really safe to leave Beau with Dustin? But again
she could really use the night out, especially to a fancy restaurant
like Londonst. Besides, what could happen for a couple of hours?
"Yeah, of course, I'm closing the shop in a couple of hours. How
about I give you a call then?" Brandi finally comes to conclusion,
"Oh and the cake is free, by the way. Take it as a gift for all
the promotion works you've done for the place."
"Thanks, Brandi. I love your cakes. Oh, and glam up. You've
been working way too hard lately. I'll see you tonight, yeah?"
"Hey, thank you for being a great support, Dina. I’ll give you a call tonight."
Thank you so much for all your comments. You guys make
me blush!! Chapter 4 - The Night Out will be posted soon.

Chapter 4 - The Night Out
"Boy, I haven’t been to this old place in ages," Mortimer
utters as the foursome take their seats in Londonste.
"Thank you all so much for inviting me. I really needed this," Brandi says.
She really does need this night out. Her boys have been driving her crazy.
"No problem, Brandi. You know we could use a new face around us,"
Dina pouts, turning to Mortimer, "Morty is getting bored of me."
"Dear, I would never get bored of you. Nobody can ever
get bored of looking at your beautiful face."
"Oh Morty, you know just what to say," Dina giggles which in
turn caused an unpleasant reaction from her twin sister, Nina.
They're a corny couple.
This type of affectionate, barf-worthy flirtation goes on for quite
a while. Of course, you're in luck today because we will not be
exploring the many nicknames of Dina and Mortimer (courtesy of
Dina and Mortimer) in this chapter. Anyhow, after dinner...
"Did you all enjoy the main course?"
"The lobsters here are so fresh. I love it" Brandi nods.
"Alrighty then, now that we all enjoyed the meal,
I have some announcements to make."
"Oh gosh here we go…" Nina knows exactly what Mortimer
is going to do. In fact, she knows it is the reason the crew
was at a fancy restaurant in the first place.
"Dina Caliente," Mortimer starts, "You are the most magnificent
women in the world and I love you dearly. You’ve brought happiness
and sunshine into my world when all I see was only darkness.
Will you please take this ring? And marry me?"
"Oh Mortimer, yes, yes, yes!!"
She didn't see that coming.. not.
I'm so glad to have regular readers. Thank you so much!!!
Your comments always make me smile (and blush!).
Stay tuned for Chapter 5 - The Night In. Oh and thank you
all so much for reading! Haha. One more for the win.
