Simspiration Prompt Post

Greetings. After a hectic 3 weekends of work, I'm excited that I get to play with the Bradfords this weekend (and it's only Monday. Sigh).

Anyway, I responeded to a sim_spiration prompt last week, and thought I'd post it here as well.



Prompt: 4/28/2010
Keyword: Friendship

The pair sat on the bench in the garden, lost in their own thoughts.

“I really wish that you weren’t going,” she sighed, a frown marring her pretty features. “I know why you’re doing it, but I’m selfish enough to want you to stay here, no matter what everyone else thinks.”

The man sighed. “I wish that I didn’t have to go either, but you know it’s what’s best for everyone involved.”

“I just hate the idea of my best friend going so far away. I don’t know when, or even if, I’ll ever see you again.”

He started at his twin in disbelief. “I’m your best friend? I thought Miss Thayer…”

“Alex,” she said, taking his hand, “Who stood up for me when my classmates felt the need to pull on my braids? Who punched Orlando Centowski when he tried to steal a kiss from me? Who stood up to Mama and Papa when I wanted to go abroad with Meadow and her family? You did. That’s why you’re one of the most important people in my life.”

Alexander looked sheepish. “But you’re my baby sister, Phily. It’s my job to protect you.”

“Matthew never protected any of us like you have. He’s more concerned with himself. You’re so giving. I don’t know what I’m going to do without you.”

“To be honest, I’m not sure what I’m going to do without you either. We’ve been a matched set for so long.”

“Thank you,” she said, squeezing his hand.

“No problem, sis,” he replied.

They sat in silence for a few moments.

“You know, you can come and visit, once we get settled.”

“Not by myself I can’t. You know Mama and Papa will never let me take the train that far alone.”

“Maybe you and Henri and the baby could make the trip. I have a funny feeling that she’s going to be needing a change of scenery soon.”

“For her sake, I hope you’re right.”

Alex rose. “It’s getting late. I’ve got an early morning ahead of me, so I think I’d better call it a night.”

Phily rose as well, and the pair hugged.

“Take care of yourself. I meant what I said. You’re the best friend anyone could ask for.”

“Ditto, sis. Ditto.”

I just discovered the SimSpiration prompts, and it's so much fun to write them. I can't wait to go shoot this scene (and it's probably not going to happen for at least 2 more chapters).

I really haven't explored Phily and Alexaner's relationship, and this prompt was perfect for it.
