We now come to the lot of Christopher and Tori (Kimura) Steel.
Tori immediately rolls a wish to change careers. I’m annoyed because she’s the Mayor of Sunset Valley, but Sim wishes rule.
Christopher Steel is supposed to be an Angler, but he decided he wanted to join the Fire Department instead. This is his first call.
It’s the home of Claire Ursine.
Now, I know Chris is a popular pick as a legacy founder’s spouse, but I’ve never really paid him that much attention. I must say he does look rather dashing in his uniform.
Watching him fight that fire is really endearing him to me.
He has another fire to fight back at the station.
Apparently, Chris is the only male firefighter in Sunset Valley. From left to right, this is Gena Close, Glenda Sellers, and Eliza England. Lucia Gillespie and Shasta Goodson round out the squad. My husband was watching me play and called it the “Politically Correct Fire Station.”
While Chris is at the station, Tori is hosting a lunch party to get to know her new boss and colleagues. This was supposed to be a dinner party, but I forgot to change the time in the party planning screen. Anyway, I can tell that Shelby Donner is really keeping the guests enthralled.
Well, at least one person is enthralled by Shelby. Too bad it’s one of Hank’s baby mamas. And speaking of Hank..
He’s moved on to yet another woman.
Shelby certainly isn’t enthralled by his ex-wife, Tamara. Tori invited both of them to the party to see if they could rekindle their relationship. It doesn’t look like that’s going to happen.
Tori turns her thoughts to kindling something with Leighton. Um, don’t waste your time, Tori. Leighton is all about Monika right now. By the way, did you forget you were married?
Tori finally manages to get face time with her new boss, Maximus VanWatson.
And my, what face time it is! Look at the smoldering looks he’s giving her. We may have another office affair brewing. (I don’t care what Monika and Marty say, I know something’s going on.)
Hopefully, Maximus will remember that he’s family-oriented too.
Especially since he and his wife have a new baby!
OTHER SP UPDATES:
The Sekemotos moved to a more expensive house, but it is one bedroom short.
Tobias just happened to be the next name on my baby list, but it really works since his father’s name is Toby. We can think of them as Tobias, Sr. and Tobias, Jr.
I thought Galen was married to Anne (nee Song). Must be another Romantic Reputation break up.
Galen does have quite the reputation now that he’s joined the ranks of the Gigolo Squad.
Blair is getting serious with her beau. Hmm, Walter Wainwright doesn’t sound too bad.
Emma picked Hugh. I hope this one sticks! Though, personally, I couldn’t be with a man who has prettier hair than I do.
Their own house, you say?
LOL! Harry took a page right out of Hank Goddard’s book: woo the girl, move in with the girl, then dump the girl. I’m glad he skipped over the “knock up the girl” step.
