NSFW: Nudity & Sexual Situations
This round begins with the Mayor, Trace Johnsen, increasing the city’s population with his housemate, Colly Mulford.
As Serendipity’s Mayor, Trace’s day begins before sunrise.
He does his warmups for an hour.
Trace loves music and dance. When Serendipity is more established, he plans to give the City Center over to Serendipity then start his own dance academy.
His warmups are followed by an hour of Spinning.
He makes himself a healthy oatmeal breakfast.
After breakfast, he showers and then sits at his desk to answer the many emails he receives.
Colly’s awake now, and it seems that their most recent attempt to increase the population was successful.
Trace goes into his “man cave” to read the daily newspaper.
Trace and Colly work in some couch time before lunch.
Trace: Man! That was some serious wall-banging sex we just had!!
Colly: Oh yeah! We definitely made it rain in there!!
Jessamyn Mishra is the first settler to visit Mayor Johnsen today.
Trace: I know you’re undecided on whether you want to run a business or not. However, I can’t allow you to become a criminal again.
Trace: The City Center is the only business up and running right now. I want you to work there for me as a bartender until you decide what you want to do. How does that sound?
Jessamyn: Fair enough. I’ll do it.
Colly’s had her first pop.
Serendipity hasn’t been established for a full week and there’s already gossip. Poor Angelico. I wonder what they’re saying about him.
There is no maid service yet, so even the Mayor has to scrub those toilets at the end of the day.
While Trace is up before the crack of dawn, Colly stays in bed dreaming about herself until well after the sunrises.
As Colly rests comfortably in bed, Trace is already knee deep in an unfortunate event born from bug hunting gone wrong.
Colly is a vegetarian and will be growing her own vegetables until Serendipity gets a green thumb resident that can farm and sell groceries. If the aforementioned resident does not arrive soon, Trace may end up becoming a vegetarian as well.
The calls regarding businesses are flooding in. Trace spend a lot of time on his cellphone during the day.
Fortunately, things quieted down in the evening allowing Trace to enjoy his dinner with Colly. They each prepare their own meals because of their dietary preferences. Colly is having vegetable soup for dinner. Trace is enjoying chicken and dumplings.
Colly: I’ve heard that elephants taste just like chicken. Is that true, Trace?
Trace: Umm… I wouldn’t know that, Colly.
Trace and Colly are very excited about the upcoming arrival of Serendipity’s first natural born citizen.
Trace’s first visitor of the day was Tiffy Draper.
Trace: Everything going well, Tiffy? Have you made any friends?
Tiffy: Not really interested in making friends. I just want someone to make out with.
Trace’s cellphone rings.
Trace: Please excuse me, Tiffy. I have to take this call.
The caller was Dunn Swander expressing an interest in getting finances to open an electronics store.
Trace: So, you were saying that you wanted someone to make out with? I could be that someone for you.
Tiffy: Well, I don’t have a problem with that, but aren’t you and Colly in a relationship? She’s living here with you, after all, and she’s pregnant.
Trace: It’s true that she’s my assigned housemate, and things have happened. But, Colly’s all about the romance, and I have commitment issues. So, it just kinda works out. Also, as Mayor, I have to do what I can to make sure that my citizens are happy.
Tiffy: OK, then. Come by anytime.
That same night, Mayor Trace Johnsen became the proud papa of Serendipity’s first natural born citizen.
Welcome to Serendipity, Cullan Mulford. It looks like he’s going to be a clone of his father, Trace Johnsen.
Trace enjoys taking care of Cullan.
Colly’s garden is coming along nicely.
Being the father of a newborn and Mayor of a recently established city is exhausting. Trace works in a nap whenever he can.
Trace still gets up before sunrise. However, he breaks his usual morning routine and studies Parenting instead.
Later that morning, Trace and Colly begin working on Serendipity’s second natural born citizen. They have yet to use the bed for this.
Trace arrives at the City Center and opens it up promptly at noon.
About the City Center…
Mayor Trace Johnsen is the owner and operator of the City Center. It is open three days a week from noon to 9PM.
In the vestibule of the City Center is a computer that citizens use to pay their taxes. There is also an ongoing Mahjong tournament.
In the posterior portion of the City Center, citizens can attend various seminars. Today, Jessamyn Mishra is giving a lecture on “The Importance of Technology and Infrastructure.”
The City Center also boasts a fully furnished kitchen and bar for citizens to use at their leisure during seminars.
Trace starts announcing the closing of business shortly before 9PM.
After cleaning and locking up, Trace and Colly return home together.
