Nita stands staring out her living room window lost in thought. She's at a cross roads in her life and she's just not sure which direction to travel. She and Amos have been unofficially seeing each other since the New Year's Eve party last winter. And she's happy to have him back in her life.
She counts down the minutes until he's able to come visit her almost every day. The kisses he gives her curl her toes. The love that they share in bed is the stuff authors write about. And she loves him. She loves him with ever fiber of her being.
When they had broken up... okay, when she had dumped him. Nita was sick without Amos for almost two years. She hated every moment that they were apart. But still...
Anan closes her eyes and signs. Can't she go any place where adults aren't making out. It's bad enough that she has two Romance sims for parents. So they are always kissing. But there is a limited to all the PDA that she can handle.
No matter how much she confesses her undying love, and no matter how much he reciprocated there was still something missing...
"I just don't know what it is. I mean, I love him. I love him so much that it hurts. And the sex is awesome, but I just feel so uncertain." Nita confessed to Heather Reed.
"Love is a tricky thing." Heather tells her. "Take me and Brandon for example.When we met I can tell you that it wasn't love at first sight."
She pauses then looks over her shoulder at her husband, gesturing to Nita then looking at his behind. The two start to giggle.
"It was more like lust at first sight. I mean he was fine, still is. And that's what I went crazy over. But my point is. You have to be sure about a man. I wasn't sure about Brandon, and I even dated other guys."
"So, you're saying that I should broaden my horizons?" Nita asks.
"Well, did you date anyone while you were single?"
"No. I couldn't think of anyone but Amos. And not that we're unofficially together... I don't know."
"Then maybe you need to go on a date." Heather finishes.
"And then she tells me that I need to explore my options." Nita finishes.
Rupert can't help but to stare at her lushes lips. He wonders what it would be liking kissing Nita.
He figures it would be much like kissing the other women that he's made out with. But there's just something about her lips. They look so inviting, begging to be kissed.
"Why not. You have to kiss a few toads before you find your prince." He says.
"A few?" Nita questions. "I really don't want to kiss that many guys. But I want to be certain that your brother is the One."
"Well my best advice is to find an old flame, an old friend. Call him up and ask him out. If you all have a good time but it doesn't feel right, then you have your answer."
"Just a fun outing. No pressure. No sex. Just fun, like a test drive." Rupert nods. "Exactly."
"Thanks for your help?" Nita says.
She can't help but to get lost in Rupert's eyes. Granted, he has the same ones as Amos, but he makes Nita's stomach flip flop in a completely different way than his brother does. It could be the fact that Rupert is more experienced than his brother. Or it could be the fact that he carries himself with cocky confidence.
And if asked, Nita would shout from the roof top that she is not attracted to men like that, but deep down inside she is. And that's why she rushes him out the door. She needs to get away from him. Before she does something stupid with her on again off again boyfriend's younger brother.
That weekend she does take Rupert's advice and asks an old friend, Amir, out of a date. He agrees.
They go bowling and take a few pictures in a photo booth. But by the end of the night she's just not feeling it. After saying "good night" Nita calls a cab and bumps into a familiar face, and the two decide to go out for drinks.
Come morning light what was thought to be a good idea and a fun outing, is revealed for what it really is. A big fat mistake. Amos can never find out.
notes from GB: Okay, if you all can't make out who's big head that is in Nita's bed then you need to get your eyes checked. LOL But it's Rupert. She was swooning and heart farting all over the place for him. Actually she's had the hots for him since she moved to Riverdale but she and Amos started a relationship first.
She has three bolts for Rupert and none for Amos, but she is in love with Amos. After they talked she started to roll all these wants for Rupert, but I ignored them. But since she NEVER and I mean NEVER rolls wants for Amos except when he comes to visit I took that as if she were questioning their relationship. That's why she broke up with him in the first place.
Well after her date with Amir, who by the way, is Sharla's baby's daddy. They had fun but nothing "clicked" with them. I had her end the date and return home. Well guess who came to visit? Yup, Rupert.
So I said to heck with it. She invited him in, they started to make out and you know the rest. But when she woke in the morning she rolled the want to invite someone over and the want to flirt with Amos and to Kiss Amos. So I'm taking that as guilt for what she's done.
