TS4→ The Runaway 2.1: Home Sweet… Home?

End My Suffering Gen 2 Runaway Teen Ch 1

After that weird guy, Kyat, left, 26 tried to sleep but he couldn’t.  Probably for the best since he noticed one of his older sisters, Nyla, walking her dog.

He found a small pond in a secluded area nearby.  He decided it’s probably best to keep out of sight during the times he should be in school anyway.

“I caught you, now what do I do with you?”

Nothing to eat but apples.  Maybe that guy Kyat would buy the fish so he can find something better to eat.

Just in case he has no interest in fish it’s not a bad idea to look around for other stuff.

Might as well do something while hiding out.

He found a more secluded fishing area on the beach after collecting everything he could find.

And met a cute stray.

After school was out, he went searching in the visible areas.  Avoiding family is going to be next to impossible.

He needed a shower badly so went to the gym and hopped on a treadmill to make it seem as if that’s why he was filthy before heading to the showers.

Another apple.  This is getting old already.

The pawn shop.  Just wow.  And that must be their house next door.

He went in and looked around.  The inside was even stranger than the outside.  Kyat immediately approached him.

He did buy a few of the items 26 had found thankfully.

But the best news is that Kyat had remembered some ruins in the forest where his mother and him had spent a short time before the winter started when he was a kid.

As he was heading out he met a girl named Kira Delgato.  She said a lot of the teens hang out here and she’d never seen him.  He played it off but wow is she pretty!

Before heading out to find the forest he searched around for more items that he might be able to sell to Kyat on his next visit.

Didn’t Kyat say they’d left those ruins when winter started?  Maybe it’s not as great as he’d hoped since winter is about to start now.

Well, it’s not much to look at.

But it does have a cave-esque shelter.  He still couldn’t believe that Kyat talked him into buying an old rug of all things!

He took a quick bush nap…

And choked down another apple.

And fished on the beach most of the night.

There are two big bushes nearby.  He decided to designate this one further away as the potty bush.

And the closer one as the sleeping bush.

He woke up with hunger pains, ate a few more apples, and went back to sleep.  He wanted to train himself to sleep while the other teens are at school.

When he headed back to the desert he searched for more items to, hopefully, sell.

He found Kyat in the backroom this time.  Thankfully, he bought some of the stuff he’d found.  He decided not to question the flamingos.

This time it was a teen boy hanging out behind the counter, Jayson.

Then he noticed one of his nieces.  He still couldn’t decide if he could trust to talk to them or not.

Best to stick to children and teens he doesn’t know for now.

On the way out he met another boy, Guillermo, who also noted that he hadn’t seen him around.  26 felt like an idiot introducing himself as T all of the time but nobody questioned it.

Again, he was off to the gym to work out for a few minutes before using the showers.  Maybe boxing’s not his thing.

When one of his sister’s started boxing as well he slid out of there and onto a treadmill.  He found he really liked exercising actually and had a twinge of sadness over the times he’d played on the monkeybars and swings with his brother Zed.

As he was leaving, he bumped into a girl Genesis.  She was really cool and they had a lot of fun joking around.  It was the most he’d talked to anyone since leaving home and he felt lighter after she wandered away calling back to him she’d see him around.

The “cave” was pretty dismal after leaving the bright desert but he was relived to have food and a place to sleep.

He headed to the library after setting up his little camp.  At first he thought he’d read a book but decided a computer would be better use of his time.  He grabbed a book before finding the computers.  Nobody would miss it anyway there are tons of books.

He’d had so much fun teasing and joking around with that girl Genesis and was feeling lonely so he found some teen forums and trolled around a bit.

Time to sleep the day away.

After leaving the wet camp it was nice to bask in the desert heat.  Since Kyat had bought a few fish he thought he’d try his hand at catching some more.

He did buy some other things which was, again, a relief.

Kyat told him he could try selling some of the other items on Simbay so he gave it a try.  It seemed more of a hassle than it’s worth though.  There’s an item limit and a fee to use it and he could only use it once a day.  He decided he’d just try to wear Kyat down on the items he hadn’t bought yet.

Extras...

For the first few days, in addition to rolling to see if Kyat would buy anything, I used LittleSam’s Simbay mod.  It’s just too hard to remember to use it.  Especially since I had to cheat him a computer and bring it in and out of household inventory since it didn’t actually work off-lot.

I lured Kira Delgato outside to get a closer pic in the light.  She’s Evie’s daughter.  So pretty.

I could not even believe when the freaking welcome wagon showed up.  I’d kept him out the first few days and then suddenly poof there they are!  I’d aged Amelia to elder early when he left because it seemed strange she had kids older than her.  Also, look above her head… floating plate.

I forgot they’d added walkbys to the island.

I left most of them in whatever athletic wear the game gave them.  Perhaps that was a mistake.

The camp’s lot traits.

Speaking of which, here are the original ruins.  I changed them almost completely, lol.

I wasn’t exactly sure what I was looking for with the pawn owner.  I think I used #eccentric.  I later had to make him an adult mother so I could use her to hire him to work at the shop.

Speaking of the shop.  I was torn between this one and one that had tons of junk all over the place outside.  I ended up just adding a bunch of stuff to this one since it already had some really neat debug items.  I also searched through the packs that weren’t used and added some of the newer items.

And, we can’t have eccentric pawn owners without a house next door now can we?  I changed it to a brighter pink and added some stuff to the front lawn.  It cracks me up that it’s next door but Kyat drives the truck to work every day.
