Mallory invited Nina over so that she could meet her brother.  She wants to help Nicolas make friends so he doesn’t feel so sad and angry all the time.

It didn’t go very well.  Nina tried talking to Nicolas but he just stared at her as if she had grown an extra head and was speaking in some foreign alien language.

Later at the park Mallory casually asked what Nicolas thought of her good friend.

Mallory:  “What did you think of Nina.  She’s nice, right?”

Nicolas:  “Who?  Oh that girl you invited over?  She’s kind of a weirdo, did you hear the way she laughs?  She sounds like a dying seal….”

Mallory just sighs and thinks that this is going to be a very hard challenge for her.

One day before school, Nicolas tells Mallory that he doesn’t like living in Newcrest.  Mallory tries to cheer him up by telling him about all the great kids in the neighborhood.

Nicolas:  “Of course you like it, you’re popular and have tons of friends….”

Mallory decides to do something about it…

Nicolas had another bad day at school and came home angry.  Some kids
were picking on him because of his grades.  Maybe he should spend some
time working out with dad.  He was sure that if he got as big as his
dad, then the kids would leave him alone.

Mallory tried to cheer him up but it just made him angrier.

Aww…….this is such a hug happy family.  Had Luka and Mallory cuddle on the couch to increase their bar and in the background Nicolas went and hugged Avery.

Hugs all around after a long day at school.

Avery isn’t very happy with their new home or the new neighborhood.

Avery:  “It’s like I’ve fallen into Munchkin Land and a freaking rainbow threw up all over the place!”

Luka:  “Well, they do like really colorful houses here in Newcrest.”

Avery:  “It’s hideous and the women!  Save me from the Stepford wives with their happy, happy, joy, joy vomit inducing colorful houses…..”

Luka:  *decides to distract her….*

Mallory and Nicolas headed to the park next door to play on the equipment.  They miss having these things in their own backyard but the new house has a smaller yard.  One day, they were playing on the pirate ship when they met some local children.

Mallory makes friends easier than Nicolas so she gained a ton of new friends while Nicolas gained some acquaintances.  They met some more children at the monkey bars the next day.

And….it’s Haylee!  Again!  This is a new save so I was surprised to find how quickly they became close friends with Haylee.  I thought I was free of that mini-pyscho.  LOL

Nicolas:  “I don’t like this place.  I miss my friends….”

Mallory:  “Dweeb, you didn’t have any friends.”

Nicolas:  “Ha.  Ha.  You think you’re so funny.  Just wait.  One day I’ll be more popular than you.”

Mallory:  “Keep dreaming.”

Meanwhile….Avery and Luka are breaking in the master bed.
