Now that Belinda Rae is a child, Lou decided to give herself a new look that would be a bit easier to manage than the upkeep of blue hair. She has always felt like a fiery sim, full of ambition and confidence, so now her hair matches her spirit.
It will also be easier for her to blend in as she moves up the ranks in the Secret Agent career track.
It hasn’t been easy, raising a Belinda while Reggie, Belinda’s father, doesn’t live with them. But Lou isn’t going to settle for love with the wrong man just because they share a child. Her mom was lucky and happened to be in love with her father when they got pregnant with Dexter. But Lou isn’t so sure… how could she be? Lou is far more logical than her social-spirited mother. Everything has to be in the perfect place, neat and tidy.
Belinda is her pride and joy, and thankfully she is surrounded by family to help out- and Belinda even has a cousin, Lizzy, to play with when Lou is busy doing work. She knows that one day she will have to take Belinda and find a home outside of the legacy house, but for now things are good how they are. The extra hands and minds and hearts go a long way in raising a healthy child.
And, it is anyone’s best guess what will happen with Reggie. Lou isn’t giving up on him, she still enjoys spending time with him. She just wants to make sure that she is fully ready to commit. She wants to teach her daughter not to settle just because of circumstance. Reggie comes over to visit often, to spend time with Lou and Belinda.
He even came over for breakfast on the morning of Belinda’s first day of school! Lou thanked him repeatedly, and he assured Lou that he was only doing what he felt was right. She hugged him, gave him a kiss on the cheek, and hopped in the shower before work.
“Maybe,” Lou said to herself in the mirror as she put half of her hair in a knot, “if things keep working out like this, Belinda and I could move in with Reggie when it is time for us to find our own place.”
She thought about it a little bit more and a smile began to creep up her face. “Maybe, we could even get married and have a second child,” she added, before logic took over and she shook the smile off of her face. She needed to get to work, earn some promotions, and figure out if she truly loves him before daydreaming about settling down.
But this new outlook was slowly creeping up behind Lou, almost as an accessory to her new hair.
