The Cowboy and the Mermaid
I was recently gifted two sims from two of my fellow simmers. I
them both very much and look forward to telling their story. I thank @emorrill
for the sims and
you guys too!
Dwight Whitley from @emorrill
Lorelei Finn from @CravenLestat
This is their story and I hope you enjoy reading it.
Lorelei Finn was raised in Isla Paradiso. After the death of her parents she was so devastated that she swam and swam leaving her home far behind her. She visited other islands and coastal communities as she swam, but none felt right to stay more than a few days. She had no desire to go back to Isla Paradiso as the memories were just too sad. She eventually finds Sunlit Tides another island community. She loves the blue waters and the small interlocking islands. Even the large volcano fascinates her. She has never seen one before. When she ventures to town, the people seem friendly, smiling and nodding at her even though they don't know her. She hopes there will be other mermaids in the community but has seen no signs of them in the waters around the islands. She buys a home on the beach with the money inherited from her parents. Her sprite named Kool Aid keeps her company and entertains her. She knows she should get out and mingle and meet some of the towns people but is not comfortable and truly is socially awkward especially meeting new people. She loves being outdoors and is eco friendly. Of course, she loves to swim. The new technology stuff she had to deal with in purchasing her home just made her brain ache. Whatever happened to pens and typewriters she wants to know.
Dwight Whitley hails from Appaloosa Plains and worked on a ranch training horses for the racing circuit as well as racing them. During his last race he and his horse were tragically injured after a jealous competitor deliberately turned his horse into Dwight's Kolinar causing a chain reaction among the horses attempting the high level jump in the middle of the course. Two horses including Kolinar had to be destroyed. One of the jockeys died from the injuries he received from the trampling and frightened horses. Dwight was in the hospital for several months recovering from his injuries. The doctors have told him he will never be able to race again. The competitor who caused it will be in jail for years to come. Dwight has no family except for his fellow trainers. The owner of the ranch encouraged him to go somewhere he'd never been. Make a new life for himself away from horses and racing. The therapists at the hospital agree. He needs to find a new purpose in life. Dwight threw his Bowie knife at a map on the wall and it landed on a place called Sunlit Tides. That is as good a place as any as far as he is concerned. What is in store for him in this new town? He does not really care where he goes or what he does. He life has changed and when he looks in the mirror he no longer see's the brave trainer/rider that he used to be. Dwight leaves Appaloosa Plains, alone, unhappy, a saddened man wondering why he didn't die that day with his horse. He tries very hard not to look back as the taxi carries him away from the ranch that has been his home for many years.
