Winston was always glad when he had the chance to see Lara. Sometimes it was difficult to get together between their busy schedules.
But the extra effort in scheduling was worth it.
With her toned body from her athletic training, Winston thought she was about as hot as they came.
However, at times, he found something about their conversation lacking. Somehow they struggled to have the same connection outside of the bedroom.
When she left for the evening, he was left home alone and wondering.
Work kept him busy. After an evening jog he ran into producer and writer Em DeLong who had some interesting entertainment proposals for him. They would require interhood travel. He was intrigued, but ultimately not interested. He was feeling settled in New Eden and wanted to stay here for now.
He was constantly getting calls from aspiring stars. More often than not they were waiters who had heard about him through Keith, the waiter who had served him while he was on vacation a few simyears ago, and were hoping he could help their careers as well.
It amazed him how many sims thought they could make it big in the music industry when they had no significant musical talent or musical training.
They probably had their eyes on the glamour and the fame and the awards. He told the young hopeful to send over some headshots and a video audition. Film or modeling might be a better way to get his start.
When he wasn't busy with his work as a talent agent, he was busy with his role in the hood council, managing the hood's finances. The new administration building had opened. It was still under renovation, but at least the officers had a place to meet.
They discussed the pressing issues of the hood. Landscaping and beautification. James was especially interested in making sure the building he was designing were properly landscaped to complete their aesthetic appeal.
Winston expressed his concerns with book-keeping for the hood's finances and keeping better track of taxes and loan repayments.
Jane was concerned about the arts, wanting more cultural and artistic opportunities in the schools and the community at large.
Hope remained mostly quiet during the meeting and quickly left once the formal meeting was dismissed. Her eyes did light up when Jane suggested new activities for the school children.
After the meeting Jane cornered Winston with a barage of questions and ideas, regarding possible concerts or plays in the hood and possible star appearances. Remembering her mostly for her days as a STAR reporter, he couldn't help feeling like he was being interviewed for a gossip article and excused himself from the conversation as soon as possible.
