Not long after setting her goals for the near future, Evelyn had been taking an interest in Xander Clavell, a coworker. The man had no fashion sense at all out of uniform, but he was kind of cute, and they must have shared something in common if they were both stealing things together. After work one night, Evelyn invited him over, deciding she would try and see if he was willing to join her on the dark side. But he didn’t feel like seeing her. Annoyed at this, Evelyn went to the gym to work out her frustrations. She wasn’t a snob, but she thought that she was quite pretty; exotic, so why wouldn’t he want to see her? She knew that he wasn’t seeing another girl, though; he lived with his parents, oldsters who Evelyn often worked out with, and she told herself that he just couldn’t handle being in her presence.
Unfortunately, this strategy didn’t work entirely; downstairs, there was a baby crying. After pumping the music up louder than she ever would normally and still being able to hear the infernal screams, she stormed downstairs. A group of women were surrounding the little child, Sandi French, as she cried. And no one did anything about it! Evelyn decided to act in the only was she saw was appropriate for the situation: By stealing the girl’s candy. It only made the child scream louder, but after this her mother picked her up and left. Evelyn laughed, and feeling better about herself, she went home.
The next morning Evelyn woke with renewed confidence, and since it was her day off, she invited Xander over. This time he agreed, and they stayed up late talking. Things were going well, and once they found each other irresistible, Evelyn suggested that they be boyfriend and girlfriend. When Xander agreed, Evelyn’s spirits were lifted high. In the heat of the moment, she proposed to him; she needed the money, and the urge to have children was becoming too great. Sadly, Xander rejected her… and she learned of his commitment issues. The mood was not completely ruined, though, she could see by the lustful look in his eyes. She asked if he wanted to woohoo, and yes he did. But once they were ready, and Evelyn suggested that they went unprotected, Xander seemingly changed his mind. Evelyn promptly went to sleep after that, dreaming of either marrying or stealing diamonds with Xander Clavell. Xander occupied himself by playing some game on Evelyn’s computer while she slept. He thought it was sweet, and like an apology.
Over the course of the next few weeks, Evelyn continued to try and woo her boyfriend. He had just rejected the marriage proposal and the unprotected woohoo because it was all too soon, she told herself. Evelyn decided that if she just mentioned the thought of either every now and then he’d eventually give in; he didn’t seem like someone serious when it came to relationships, so he’d give in eventually, she was sure. Though the weeks following seemed to beg to differ; Xander wouldn’t budge on it.
Eventually, Evelyn had to give up. Cute though he may be, Xander was as stubborn as an ox when it came to the thought of woohooing; forget marriage! On a day off, Evelyn phoned Xander with a sigh. He came over right away, like he always did whenever she told him to come over. Oddly, he seemed very hurt when she told him that they were done. Evelyn, however, was already plotting her revenge on Xander for wasting her precious time. Evelyn held grudges, and he would pay.

Evelyn Hallovin was not like most sims. While like others, she had come to Sunset Valley to begin a new life and set down some roots, there was something quite different about her. With her pale skin and dark hair, and eyes an almost black purple, the citizens of the town all agreed that there might be something sinister about the town’s newest addition. Evelyn was very artistic, and enjoyed writing and painting. After furnishing her lot in a way that pleased her, with just a bed, a toilet, and a place for her to start the literary career, she set off to town to get a job. Unfortunately, there weren’t many jobs that interested her. She could join the journalism career, she supposed, since she liked writing. But she was evil and a loner, and somehow she couldn’t see herself delivering newspapers and interviewing people. Evelyn needed a job that she would enjoy doing, that wouldn’t clash with any of her traits. She decided to check out the Outstanding Citizen Warehouse Corp, a rundown warehouse. It appealed to her greatly, even though she preferred the nicer things in life.
The warehouse offered her a job as a criminal. Maybe that wasn’t Evelyn’s thing, exactly, but it was better than the rest of her options. Though the pay was low, which concerned her. But upon meeting her boss, the pregnant Claire Ursine, she decided to stick around. Something in her gut told her it would be worth it. Now, what’s a criminal that can’t run away fast enough when he is caught, or perform other athletic-y criminal things? Evelyn decided to hit the gym and get into shape, so she could earn those promotions, and money, quicker. When she arrived at the gym, the only other person there was Justine Keaton, another pregnant woman. It sounded to Evelyn like she might just pop that baby out right there, and she would have to take her to the hospital. Fortunately, the baby stayed put, and for a while Evelyn could fall down on the treadmill without anyone there to mock her. Though as the day continued, more gym rats arrived, making the loner Evelyn uncomfortable. The more people that arrived, the more she was uncomfortable, and the more she fell down. Eventually she got off of the treadmill, showered, and went home.
The days passed, and Evelyn was gradually advancing towards her next promotion. At work, she spent a lot of time around Claire Ursine, and before long they were good friends. Being good friends with one’s boss is a good thing, and Evelyn was quickly promoted. With the flow of cash into her bank account steadier than ever, Evelyn felt it was safe to add to the house. It now consisted of a double bed, a workspace for her computer, a fridge, and a small bathroom with a shower and toilet. She was also able to purchase wall coverings such as the cheapest red and black tiles and wallpapers. She was quite happy with the way things were looking, and couldn’t wait to improve her home further. She began working out more often, every day after work that she wasn’t too stressed, and began working on her first novel to bring in some extra cash. Things were looking better now than they had been just a week ago. Now, Evelyn felt that the next things she should be aiming for were walls defining each room, a roof over her head, and at least one daughter.
