A lack of public toilets

Alice has to leave late in the evening to avoid the curfew, and goes back to the park to sleep on the bench. In the morning, Kev and his bladder have a little accident.

He’s looking a little ashamed when Alice wakes up.

But then he starts ranting and raving to himself in the same spot, stamping up and down making disturbing squishing sounds.

Alice tells him how disgusting he his, then storms off back to Zedadias’ place.

Next: Maybe it’s better to be smelly

    More, more, more. This is an excellent novella roBurky. Keep up the great work and storytelling.

    Totally agree, great story. It’s pretty funny, in the surreal way The Sims always is, but manages to have some surprisingly sad moments too.

    Yes, please keep this up!

    It keeps alternating between hilarious and depressing, an odd combination for any story — let alone one told entirely through the Sims 3!

    Great work so far. I’m looking forward to the rest.

    Wow, I have to echo the other positive comments – this is a great series. EA should hire you to do this for them, it’s the most I’ve been interested in The Sims 3 so far!

    If you ask someone “Can I Stay Over?”, you avoid getting cought out at curfew.

    This is quite entertaining.
    I started my own homeless adventure with a sim named ‘Barry the Bard’.
    Its been interesting so far, with the little amount of money he has collected i’ve managed to build him a small shack and start a small garden in which he harvests bait for fishing in the park.
    He enjoys implying to rich people visiting the park that their mothers are llamas and such.

    Anyway keep up with this story, it is very well documented.

    Ok I have held off commenting up until now, and I have to say I think this has been a brilliant change of pace from the usual Sims stories. Most try to get more more more, and here you have a family that is beyond dysfunctional. I have a few stories going myself, but I think I may give this a try as well. Keep up the great story, you have a great creativity and imagination to come up with this. You’ve managed to make people love/hate Kev and feel sorry for Alice, but not too sorry.

    you’ve convinced me as well, bloody good game!

  18. 25 Angelia June 13, 2009 at 9:16 pm

  26. 33 Jess May 8, 2010 at 6:59 pm

    LOL!!!! Kev pissed himself.

    i understand they’re homeless and all but couldn’t they go to the gym for a shower and a potty break. They could also always get jobs especially since alice is teen now. they could gain skills from going to the library and reading. then they could get better jobs and buy their neccessities. real homeless people could do the same thing. and by the way homeless doesn’t mean poor it just means you don’t have a home.
