We are back with a new Otts update today, which I’m super excited to be bringing you again already. I am not currently playing my saves in any particular order right now, just playing what I’m having fun with at the time. So last time we didn’t have a whole lot that happened beyond meeting who will be our newest member, Hinata. Let’s dive in and see how it’s going with them.
We start with Bailie breaking the sink and then standing there complaining about it. I’m so glad there is nothing in the points about breaking items. We’d be in the negatives at this point for sure.
It’s love day, so once Calvin gets up and repairs the broken plumming he invites Hinata over. She offers him a gift all by herself. It’s very sweet, and he is very smitten. He quickly offers up a rose of his own.
Then Hinata grabs a drink of some kind and decides to take a bath in our bathtub. Not really sure if this bodes well for her, already drinking in the bath. It doesn’t matter though, I love her anyway.
Cordelia comes over and is greeted happily by her mother. Now that Bailie isn’t the TH anymore, most of her holidays aren’t going to be the best unless there is a group thing we can do together.
It’s a busy day at the Otts house, as once Cordelia leaves Bailie’s brother, Brodie, comes over to hang out with his big sister. He’s getting up there in years and I expect to get a notification about him passing fairly soon.
Not only was it love day, it was also the festival of lights. So for a date with Hinata, he took her up to Mt. Komorebi to the festival. They started out by writing their wishes and hanging them on the Tanabata tree in the festival area.
Calvin got himself a Taiyaki to eat at the food stand and then makes some moves on the woman he is falling madly in love with. She is quite happy with his affections and returns them as well. It’s turning out to be a very good date.
The two went and cuddled by the fire that burning in the square and enjoyed watching the fire dancer that was there. It was then that we had Calvin do what we came here to do. He got down on one knee and asked Hinata to be his bride.
She said yes, thank goodness, and gave him a kiss and jumped into his arms. They were now officially engaged. I am so excited to get them married. I really hope Hinata will be a good spouse for this ISBI.
The fact someone started making the fire spark right behind them right after that made me giggle. It’s like the world knew and celebrated with them. Congrats to Calvin and Hinata on the engagement. I opened up the calendar and planned the wedding as soon as Calvin got home.
I noticed that Calvin had some sentiments I had not seen before, so I opened up the panel to look at his sentiments about Hinata, and look at how cute these are. She even has an adorable one about him.
The next morning Bailie comes in and talks with Calvin. I like to imagine this is when he told his mom the good news about his engagement. He has also, officially, now gotten all the things he needs in order to get a promotion at work, and is close to completing the first milestone of his aspiration.
It happens to be Spring Fun Day and the flower bunny comes in and gives Bailie a “bro” type hug. They chat for a bit, but then the flower bunny moves on to another area of the neighborhood.
It has been quite a while since we had a club meeting, so Calvin starts one and then we realize that Bailie is still the head of the group. Calvin convinces her to step down, which makes her sad for a few minutes until everyone shows up and starts on club activities.
Calvin does two things right away as club leader. First, he invites Hinata to join the club, which she is excited to do. Then he sets some club “uniforms” which turn out cute with the new club jackets. Lots of reading is done, which brings Calvin a bit closer on his aspiration and he just needs to finish one more book.
We have multiple ghosts out to haunt this time, and Bailie is up late into the evening, or maybe it was super early in the morning. Either way, she sees her dad Alvin and freaks out a bit. It’s hardly the first time she’s seen him.
It’s a stormy day, of course, when the happy couple heads to the wedding venue and gets married out in the rain. It’s a weird ceremony and glitched out a bit at the beginning, but soon enough Hinata Inoue is now Mrs. Otts.
These two are going to be a lot of fun I think. I’m so happy Hinata is a part of the family now. They will bring along generation D, and hey, we are slowly moving through the alphabetcy.
I was busy watching the happy couple when my camera gets pulled into the building in time to see Brodie waving goodbye. Darn it Brodie!!! Man, 2 out of the 3 outings these two have had end up with death happening. Grim, you were NOT invited to this wedding. Our poor new bride has to see yet another death on what should be one of the happiest days.
The reception continues on without too much more fanfare, the cater makes no food, even though there is a full kitchen, and most people just went and got snacks from the fridge instead. I may have to test this lot a little more, but it is really pretty.
Then, poor Bailie, who is starving, and exhausted, ends up peeing herself (although there are open bathrooms at the time and she just never went and used them) so that gives us -5 points already. Hm….I hope this isn’t a sign of things to come. Let’s wrap up this update here and see how the newlyweds handle their new marriage next time.
