2. After Kate left the house and moved to UC Sunnydale, Connor sat down at the computer to search for jobs oncemore.Hm, he said, looking at the ads. Artist would be useful. I wouldnt mind a drumset. But He paused for amoment, then clicked on another ad. If Im quick, I can get permaplat. Culinary it is. He frowned at thecomputer. I hope this happens today. Then maybe I can take that Artist job. 3. Afterwards, he called up the matchmaker and, now that he was living in a house with money, asked for a date. 4. It went fine, but Connor just wasnt that interested, and he wasnt that upset when his carpool came and interruptedhis date. 5. And, when he got home, it was to permaplatness.This made both of us happy as Connors dating life had been less than satisfactory, and he was a Pleasure Sim, theway permaplatness made his wants unnecessary was a wonderful thing. 6. Luckily, the Artist job was still there, though work didnt start again until Monday. As it was still Thursday night, thatwas a long time to wait, but Connor didnt mind staying home from work was fun! 7. And it wasnt like he was rushing to move out, either. Living at home was perfectly fine, especially now that hisbedroom had been redone with a double bed. 8. The next day, Tara finished her newest novel.She frowned at the computer as she checked her email. The novel was a bestseller, which was great, but she wasworried. She was running low on ideas.Lilahs escapades, Taras most common idea source, had toned down since shed started having kids, and Tara hadalready written about practically every single lover Lilah had had in college.She was going to need a new source, but she wasnt sure what that was. 9. Meanwhile, Connor, who had the day off, asked the matchmaker for another date a woman this time.It went even worse than the last one had. 10. He ended the date and headed inside, where he found his aunt standing by the television. Whats up, Aunt Tara?She turned to look at him. I thinkwhoa.Then she spun around. 11. What am I wearing? she asked. This needs to change. Now. 12. Tara wasnt the only one to age up that night, and she definitely wasnt the only one to age up into horrible clothing.Lilah also looked down at what shed aged into and immediately went for a change of clothing. 13. You look good, sis, Tara said. Very much like you, but still appropriate.Youre only as old as you feel, Lilah said.And woohoo keeps you young?Well, why shouldnt it?Tara shook her head, a wry smile on her face. I love you, sis.Love you too. 14. The next day was a Saturday, and none of them had to work (or at least didnt have work til much later), so Tara,Lilah, and Connor invited the whole family over for a party. 15. There was at least one person there who wasnt a family member.Connor, still on the hunt for a date who wouldnt bore him an hour in, had invited over the gypsy matchmaker oncemore. 16. Hello, Tara said hesitantly.Hello, dearie. Are you looking for love?Tara immediately started to say no, but then stopped. Thoughts of her novel, of her sister, of her entire life ranthrough her head. Yes, she said instead. Yes I am.If you want true love, itll cost you.How much?Five thousand. 17. The Fortune Sim in Tara rebelled at the price, but shed mellowed with age. It only took a second of hesitationbefore she got out the money. Here you go.Ah, I sense you will find true love indeed, the gypsy said. She swiftly pocketed the money and got out her crystalball. 18. The gypsy gestured at the man whod just dropped from the sky. This is Phoenix Go. He is your perfect match.Thanks, Tara said. Then she turned to the man. 19. Hi, she said, Im Tara. Whedon. Tara Whedon.Pleased to meet you! he said. 20. While he seemed to find her attractive, Tara still had no idea what she was doing. Was this the right choice? Shouldshe back off, as she always had before?No, she thought, not this time. With renewed determination, she began to flirt. 21. Luckily, Phoenix was very good at keeping her calm, and making her feel comfortable, and she found she didnt mindthe date at all. 22. Her first kiss wasnt even bad at all. 23. As Lilah left for work, she watched her sister and her date. I hope this breaks her out of her shell a bit, Lilahthought. She could use that. 24. As the sun began to set, Tara put her arm on Phoenixs waist. Do do you want to come upstairs?Are you sure?Not at all. Yes. 25. They went up to her bedroom and got in bed. 26. Thank you, Tara said. That wasthat was good.Phoenix smiled at her. Youre welcome. 27. Then she went downstairs and wrote the prologue of her next novel. 28. The next morning, Lilah cornered her sister. So, did you finally try woohoo?Yeah, I did.How was it?Tara shrugged. I dont get what you see in it. It was fun enough, but I dont feel a need to repeat it.Not your true love then?Not sure anyone is. 29. Lilah put her hands on Taras shoulder. If you dont want to have more, you dont have to.Tara shook her head. I hope Im not disappointing him.Lilah shrugged. Hell deal. And if he wont, Ill make him deal.Tara burst out laughing. Thanks. 30. Soon after, Kate found herself at Grahams house, listening as he told her all about what hed been doing at schoolsince shed moved to UC Sunnydale.So, she said, found a new girlfriend yet?He shook his head. Havent wanted to.Theres two years til you get to college.I dont care. He looked at her. What about you?---JossCordyXanderDawnDarlaGraham 31. Well, college is great, Kate said. I havent done much, but its great.Is there anyone? I mean, for you.For a moment, Kate considered teasing him, but she decided not to. No, she said. There isnt. I havent foundanyone I want more than you, butnot now. Not when youre this young, and Im not.He nodded. Date if you want, but I bet Ill sweep you off your feet when I get to college.You can try.Oh I will. 32. Elsewhere on The Hellmouth, life continued.Glory and Kennedy expressed their playfulness in many ways some shared, some individual.They were very lucky to have a number of relatives who would indulge them in almost anything they wanted. 33. Of course, sometimes those relatives were quite absorbed in their own lives, but that was okay too. 34. Quite involved in their own lives. 35. Daddy, who was that lady who came out of your room this morning?Her name is Sandy. She wasvisiting.Is she going to be our new mommy?Do you want a new mommy?Kennedy thought for a moment. Well, Amanda has a daddy and a mommy. But she doesnt have a sister. Idrather have Glory than a mommy.Me too. Then no mommy it is.Kennedy nodded. No mommy. 36. Meanwhile, at UC Sunnydalenot everyone was actually spending their time at the university.Drusilla, who was a bit sick of her housemates (as Amber tended to yell at anyone who disturbed her studying andBen shamelessly flirted everywhere with any woman who breathed), spent an evening in Los Angeles chatting withthe delightful Count Aubrey.It was a nice break from the monotony of college.---JossBuffyFredHarmonyBen 37. Have a good time in Los Angeles last night?Yeah, I had a lot of fun. Met this awesome vampire.Ben raised an eyebrow. A vampire?Drusilla shrugged as much as she could while playing the guitar, anyway. He was very polite. She poked a footat the tip jar. You going to tip me?Youre my housemate. Anything I put in will come back to the house funds anyway.Yeah, but I want to earn $10,000, and tips are the easiest way. Ben grinned, then put a bill in the jar. 38. That evening, Count Aubrey stopped by.Drusilla had a blast talking to him, and learned quite a lot about vampires. 39. She even tried flirting with him, but it didnt quite feel right.So, when the sun came up and he had to head for his coffin, she didnt protest. 40. So, Drusilla said the next morning, I see you dont have a girl here today.Ben grinned. I hit twenty woohoos last night.Your lifetime want?Yup.So what do you want now?Id like to be a Celebrity Chef.Suits you, Mr. Outgoing. 41. Ben laughed. I come by it honestly.True enough. I cannot count the number of times Ive seen both your parents naked in the hot tub. Drusillapaused for a moment. So youre not sleeping around anymore?He shrugged. If I find someone I want to sleep with, I will. If I dont, I wont. But theres not that burning needanymore, you know?Not really. Im not permaplat.What do you want?To be a Hall of Famer. Drusilla bit her lip, thinking. Then she decided to go for it. 42. And, she said, reaching up to caress his face, I want you.He grabbed her wrist. Are you sure of this, Dru?I am.You were never interested before.She shrugged. I didnt want anyone back in high school. And, I mean, I noticed you were a boy, butits justobvious, with all those girls youve always had around. I like you, and I think I want more.He nodded. I may not always be able to be faithful.I hope youll try. 43. He pulled back, grinning. Lets try dating first, before we make anything permanent.Of course. I dont even know if Ill like kissing.He thought back over what he knew of Drusilla and her history. Youve never kissed anyone.No.Well, wed better fix that.She grinned. Youve got all that experience, so youd better make it good.Oh, I will. 44. He pulled her close and kissed her.When they pulled apart, he smiled. Good enough?Oh yeah.They dove back into the kiss, somehow managing to stumble upstairs, still hanging onto each other. Ben tried tolead Drusilla to his bedroom.No, she said. Not where youve been with everyone. Well use mine. 45. When they managed to find their way to the bed, Drusilla stopped Ben from kissing her immediately. Theres onemore thing I want, Ben. Out of life.What?Id like to be a
