Decisions: Part II

It will come as no surprise that Graysen definitely tried to get back into Peyton's good graces. But she is a smart girl and found out quickly that he not only was he dating her arch nemesis but that they were expecting their first child and just closed on a new home.

She threw herself back into career mode pretty hard, auditioning for gigs here and there and taking whatever money she could simply for the sake of getting her name out there. Her shows were sold out every night and she'd gotten rave reviews. Not quite close to stardom but getting there.

Late one night after a big show, Vassar decided to come clean about his feelings. He'd made sure to stay for the entire sure but couldn't manage to get backstage. He figured this would be his opportunity. After several hours passed he saw her and emotions were high. His heart was pounding against his chest and breathing was heavy.

At first she didn't know how to take it. The one friend that had always been by her side and been the one she could confide in the most was head over heels madly in love with her. There was silence between them for a long time, her eyes meet his and he decided to do something to break that silence.

After all this time he could not hold back any longer, and what could possibly happen? She'd say no, he'd go on without her as he had done for so many years now. But he just had to try and see if she felt the same, this was possibly his last chance to come clean.

Much to his surprise she was overwhelmed with joy and told him that she cared deeply for him but wasn't sure if he felt the same. "I've always loved you Peyton Oliander."
"And I you, Vassar Flume."

Decisions:Part I

The days and nights of singing for countless sims and for numerous reasons seemed like they'd never come to an end. Not that Peyton worried much about that, she had the opportunity to do what she loved most, perform. Even though it was in the smallest way possible she'd felt that she touched many with her gift.

No matter where she went there was always song to be played, or written for that matter. Soon she would amass enough songs to possible have her own album. The local record companies told her she had the talent, now all she needed was material. With that in mind Peyton continued on her journey to become a Singing Superstar.

It was a typical sunny afternoon and the color of the leaves had started to change. Mint greens soon became burnt oranges and the days were much cooler than they'd been since the beginning of summer. Fall had always been Peyton's favorite season. After countless hours of writing she'd finally written a new love song called, "Love Comes Seasonally." In the park she belted out her tune for tips, any little bit helped towards her goal. And that was when she saw him.....or them rather.

Vassar Flume, youngest of the Flume line. He was a rather unimpressive looking guy as far as his clothing and style but there was something almost mesmerizing about those eyes. Almost peering into your soul when he'd look your way. The word around town was that he was very much an eligible bachelor, his investments landed him a stellar career as VP of the Langraab Industries with a heavy interest in science.

Graysen Flume, elder brother of Vassar Flume and heir to the family's vast fortune. With both parent's terribly ill the majority of the their investments were now his responsibility. Both brother's, while  loving to one another have a bit of a competitive streak between them. So when they saw Peyton Oliander, again, after all these years the games would undoubtedly begin once more.

Peyton had attended University with the Flume brothers and found herself in a bit of a predicament when Vassar and Graysen took to fighting over her. It not only jeopardized her friendship with Vassar but made Graysen incredibly jealous. Vassar had always had a crush on Peyton but was far too shy to say anything about it.

His brother, on the other hand, had always been very charismatic and a smooth talker. And even though Vassar warned her, the two ended up dating in college briefly. Which of course was short lived die to Graysen been a ladies man. But Peyton never stopped caring for either of them. She dropped out of college to pursue her dreams of some day becoming a singer.

Vassar decided to make his move first, since the last time he didn't have the courage and had to watch her date his brother. The pair have been inseparable and picked up their friendship right where they left off as if no time had passed since college. Peyton had never truly known his feelings for her, and simply thought them to be best friends. But Vassar had a plan this time.

But just like he had in the past, Graysen got the jump on him and surprised Peyton with a visit. I was a welcome surprise and despite their past together she could help but wonder how things could have been.

Poor Peyton isn't sure what to do. Will Vassar ever come clean about his feelings before Graysen steps in again? Or will Peyton foolishly fall for him once more?
