Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind

The first month after David’s departure, Kate was rarely going out of her room or even practicing her favorite hobby. She couldn’t stop thinking about the moments they’ve spent together and when she remembered the first time he kissed her, she would cry for hours. Kate felt also really sad about one thing… David didn’t give her his phone number, so his promise to stay in touch faded away as the morning mist. Soon the days became shorter and the winter was coming.


During the winter months, Kate would eventually go out, because the few times in her life she has seen the real snow, it had usually melted away the same day it appeared. But it was different here in Monte Vista, or at least it was different this year. One day there was so much snow that she could even make a snow angel!


Kate bought herself a pair of skates and went skating for the first time in her life… or at least she tried to.


When the Christmas Day was coming up, Kate got an idea. She needed to discover where David lived in Bridgeport so she could send him a Christmas Card. She asked around the town and found the person that rented the house to the two models back in August. Fortunately he still had their data in his computer. She was so happy! Kate spent one entire afternoon preparing the card and really liked the result a lot. She also wrote her address on the envelope, so he could write her back.

However, a big disappointment came when she hasn’t gotten any Christmas Card from David by the end of January. Kate felt really sad, because now when he had her contact, he didn’t care to write back. She started to think, that he was a big liar… but her emotions took over her mind and she decided to write him a love letter for the occasion of the St. Valentine’s Day.

Love letter

Unfortunately, she never got any response neither this time. To cheer herself up, she started hanging out with a group of people every weekend. By the end of February she has made a good new friend, Emma Perry. They spent quite some time together, but after a couple of weeks, Emma decided to visit her cousin Odine in Bridgeport.


The days were passing slowly, but it didn’t take long and the snow has melted away. The spring was at the doorstep. People started wearing less clothes and couples in love were often coming to eat the pizza at the restaurant, but for Kate there was no love in the air anymore. When the days became warmer, Kate took Bella for the first spring ride. She realized that she has missed her so much!


The next week Kate entered a racing competition and she won! She felt good about herself once again. One week followed another and Kate found herself with more then three golden cups decorating her room!


It was the moment when Kate realized she had what it takes to make a living from her favorite sport and registered herself as self-employed.

    • I’m really happy, that you’ve learned something new from my story! πŸ™‚ If you have the Pets expansion, the option to register as self-employed at the town hall pops up once you’ve gained at least one point in the riding skill. πŸ™‚

  1. Poor Kate; it’s good that she’s gotten herself out of the house and enjoying life even if David is giving her the cold shoulder. She should remember that she is a talented beautiful girl – lots of boys would be lucky.

    • Thank you!

      Things aren’t always easy in real life and I am trying to write a story as close to reality as possible (except for the supernaturals in the later Chapters – but that’s obviously a work of fiction). Kate is a natural talent, so having her register herself as a self-employed horsewoman was the right thing to do! She finally does what she always wanted to do for a living πŸ™‚
