There was a knock on the door and Green poked his head in. He had the classic puppy dog eyes as he looked at her. In a way it made her uneasy.
"I think I love you," he said softly.
Amanda put up a hand and laughed nervously as Ann snickered. "I told you to use friendship. Was your aim off or what?" Green seemed to pay her no mind and only stood there, waiting for Amanda to make a move.
When Amanda caressed his cheek, he shuddered at her touch as if he was working to fight back the urge to pounce her right there in front of his mother. "Well, Green. What made you change your mind?"
Green stepped close to her, his blue eyes in a slight haze. For one so slight, he was very strong and secure in his romancing ability, as if he had often swept female sims off their feet on a whim. He wrapped an arm around her and pulled her in for a kiss she could not resist. "Oh," was all she could say after he let her go.
Their romance moved quickly, and before he left for school again he had asked her to marry him right on the front lawn.
Green stayed at school until the day his father passed. After that day, something in Ann seemed to snap, and she pressed harder for the wedding and made Amanda promise a girl. A girl that she insisted would be especially for Ann. Amanda couldn't help but to feel a bit uncomfortable at Ann's urging, but to her credit she hid it very well.
Amanda found herself slightly worrying that her first child might not be a girl. How would her mother in law react? It already seemed that Ann had split at the seams, part of her had gone with Alec. The part that was left secretly frightened Amanda. But it was not something she could admit to Green without possibly telling him the complete truth which she was sure would break the spell that she had placed over him.
