So, the birthday party was a total success. At least until Camilla noticed that the entertainer we hired didn’t leave the lot after the party.
Instead, he stayed behind and used Evander’s easel.
And Camilla didn’t quite approve. Or did she?
“Oh, I’m painting. The nature is really beautiful around here,” the entertainer answered with a friendly smile.
Camilla said it with her most angelic, innocent voice and left before he was able to say something.
But, of course, she wasn’t being innocent at all. She just wanted to confused him a little. And then, when he was about to leave, she attacked in full power.
The entertainer was not amused.
Lesson of the day: Having a conversation with dastardly hot-head can have devastating consequences. Attempt at your own risk.
Camilla could be a bit difficult to handle at times, but usually, when she was able to control her temper, she was really sweet. Mischievous, funny, full of energy and optimism. These qualities and her undeniably good looks made her quite popular among the boys from the neighborhood.
“That is unfortunate,” she answered, not impressed, “I needed someone to help me with egging a few houses, but now that you’re both blind…”
Her words magically healed these poor boys, but Camilla was still quite annoyed.
Oh, I’m sorry, Millie! This is what Townie generator had for you.
They were not all equally annoying, though.
This Alfred boy was actually fun. And brave – the only person in Willow Creek who was not afraid to use sarcasm while talking to Camilla. They became friends rather quickly.
Later that evening, Alexander called Melia and asked her on a date. Poor Mel was really exhausted from work, but she didn’t want to turn him down again, because she already did it three times that week.
Melia was too tired for dinner or cinema, so they just went for a nice walk along the river together and talked about their days.
Alexander smirked: “Anytime, my love.” And kissed her gently.
Melia wasn’t sure how it made her feel. Yes, she was attracted to him. Yes, she considered him a good companion and a loyal friend. Yes, she could talk to him for hours without realizing what time it was.
And even though her heart seemed to beat faster whenever he started to be all affectionate and amorous towards her, she wasn’t sure if it was because of excitement – or panic.
But she loved his company. And she was really sorry that they didn’t get to spend more time together because of her busy schedule.
So, the next day, she decided that it would be for the best to start hanging out at Oakenstad and she invited him over. She assumed it would be less time consuming.
It wasn’t the most romantic date ever, considering Melia’s family members were constantly joining the conversation, but it was quite enjoyable. And the food was delicious, of course.
After dinner, neat Melia rushed to wash the dishes and Alexander decided to play BlickBlock to pass time. But instead of getting a high score, he broke that old thing. And he felt really terrible about it so he decided to give a go and try to repair it.
But unfortunately, Camilla was passing by.
That last comment made him bristle with anger. Alexander jumped out from his seat, furiously defending himslef.
She just love making him upset, doesn’t she? 😀
Poor Alexander quickly left, feeling angry and embarrassed. He didn’t even say goodbye. But then he felt sorry, so he apologized to Melia in a text message, explaining his little confrontation with Camilla.
Melia was understandably upset. But since she and Camilla had fairly different schedules and hardly saw each other during the week, she asked her parents to intervene.
But Adrian was already a bit preoccupied with his cake to answer that.
