Sorry for the delay on this chapter. I had to re-download the game. Luckily I saved the families before it happened. But I am using different skins and eyes, so they're a little different. Oh and I absolutely fell in love with the hat she's wearing!!
The next chapter is almost done. It was in this one, but It was making it too long. So a little finally touches and that one will be out as well! :)

Thanks again for all the comments I have more time on my hands, so I should be able to comment back. :) <3333333333333

Isabella ran straight to her room. She didn't have much time before her mom would wake up and be down to check on her. Quickly she grabbed a few sets of clothing and her laptop. Then took one last look around her room. She didn't even leave yet and already she was missing her room, the house and most of all her mother. But she kept telling herself that she had no other choice. This was the right and best thing to do. She was nineteen and a young adult now. She had to start acting like one. Most of all she tired not to think about how this will hurt her mother.

Isabella quickly grabbed a piece of paper and wrote a note to her mom. She wrote...

Mom, don't worry about me, I'm fine. I'm just going to go away for awhile to get my life back together. I'll be home as soon as I can.

I know you weren't lying about Josh and I'm sorry I didn't tell you about it. I know now that I acted selfishly and I just wasn't thinking. I'm sorry that I disappointed you and hurt you. I never meant to do that to you. I love you mom and please don't worry about me. I'll be ok!

Love, Bella
With one last feeling of dread and a wish that everything could be different. She left her home and old life behind. She was now going to be in the real world. All by herself, pregnant and with no place to go. A week and a half later she stood outside her new rented trailer. She'd been living out of the rusted car she bought. Bought with the money that she got from selling her laptop. It was a piece of junk, pretty much falling a part, but at least it got her from point A to B.

She found an add in the shopper for this trailer and the rent was cheap. She could see now why it was. The outside was trashed. The sides of the trailer were rusted completely. The door was even rusted. She sighed and told herself that she wouldn't be here long. She's just there till she gets a job and saved some money. That's when she glanced down and saw all the trash on the ground. "Oh god! There's even a toilet seat!" She said in shock to no none. "Only here for a little bit", she kept saying to herself over and over.
With dread she starting walking towards the door. Hoping that no snakes would jump out and bite her. She walked up the steps hoping that the rotting wood would collapse under her feet.

With a shaky hand she reached for the door nob and turned it. Only to have it not even move. She tugged and pulled at it for what seemed like hours. She finally got it, when she put one foot up on the wall by the door and with both hands on the nob she pulled. The door flew open and she almost went flying down the steps. "Ok...I think the door might need a little grease or something." She said under her breath.

To say she wasn't shocked when she stepped into the house would be an understatement. The first room she saw was the living room. It was worst then she could have ever imagine. The floor had an old worn out shaggy orange carpet. The kind you see in 70's movies. The walls were an ugly brownish color, with wood that looked like termites had a nice meal out of it. The doors to the other rooms didn't look much better. That's when she saw the kitchen and gasp.
It was orange as well. With an orange and yellow tile floor. The counters were bright orange and brown. She couldn't even grasp what the person who decorated was thinking. Again she kept saying to herself, "Only for a little while." Then the fridge caught her eye. It was two different colors and looked like it was dragged behind a truck at one point. She wondered if it even worked.

Isabella wanted to break down and cry right then and there. She didn't though she tried to tell herself that the rest of the house had to look better.
Isabella swore she had never felt as much dread as she did since she saw this trailer. Taking a deep breath she reached out and went threw the first door she came to. She let out a scream in horror, as she looked out the bathroom. It was disgusting. The toilet looked like it was never cleaned, the shower was filled with soup scum and other unmentionables. The faucet was even rusted. Isabella let out a groan, when she saw the mirror and sink. The mirror was broken and the sink didn't look much better then the shower. Didn't anyone ever clean this bathroom? She thought as she ran out of the room, afraid that she was going to get sick. There was no way that she was going to get her head near that toilet. She had to get some cleaning supplies. That's when she looked over at the bedroom door. She looked up at the ceiling and prayed, "Please, pleeeeeeeeeeease let the bedroom look better." With eyes closed she opened the door. Slowly she opened one eye and was met with an ugly flower patterned wall. It had the same "wonderful" 70's themed. The bed didn't look much better, with it's worn out stained quilt. She wished now that she would of took her blanket off her bed.

Isabella sat down on the bed, trying to take everything she just saw. There was no way she could bring the baby here. She spent the last of her money on the rent though. She had to get a job that was the only solution and she had to get one now or she would be pregnant and living on the street. It didn't help that she hardly ate since she left her home and that just made her feel weak and tired. I chose this, she reminded herself. "And I have to make it work and i'm going to!" She said with a new burst of determination. With that she got up and went to find a job.
The first place she went to was a little this and that shop. She walked up to the only person working and asked for the manger.

"I am the manger, the owner, the everything here." he said, in a not so friendly tone. Actually nothing about him seemed friendly and he was glaring at her now. All her self esteem went out the window there.

"I...I was wondering if you were hiring?" She stammered.

He gave her a look that screamed, you have got to be kidding me. He just waved her away and said. "No, now move so I can help real customers. She looked around and saw that there wasn't even anyone in the store. She didn't even bother to mention that fact and just turned to leave instead.

That's not the only place in town. Besides who would want to work for him anyways. She told herself and began to walk to the next place.
Isabella got turned down by three other places. Two said they were looking for someone older and the other just wasn't hiring. With her faith and determination next to none. She walked in to what looked like the towns hang out. She walked up to the first person she saw and asked where the owner or manager was. They pointed her to the man behind the bar. Mustering up all the confidence that she could, she walked over and sat down at the bar in front of him. He glanced at her once and the turned back to the show that was on the TV.

"Excuse me sir." She said. When he didn't turn to her she said it again even louder. Still he ignored her. What was with these people, she thought. Shaking her head. She stood up and tapped him on the shoulder and repeated herself. He finally looked at her and said, "You're too young to be served alcohol."

Isabella shook her head. "I don't want a drink, I want a job."

He turned and gave her a long look over she felt awkward and like a piece of meat. "As much as I would love to hire you doll. You're just too young and I could get in trouble."

At that her shoulders slumped and she turned and walked out. Thinking about how much of a pig he was.
As she walked outside she took in the scene. It was summer heading into winter the air was warm, but it wouldn't be like this for long. If she didn't get a job soon, she would be living out in the cold. A shiver went threw her body. She couldn't think like that. She sat down on the bench feeling defeated. The real world wasn't as easy as she thought it would be, but she wasn't a quitter. There was always tomorrow. Right now all she could think about was food and sleep. With one last look around her, she left for her home. Well Isabella is learning the hard way. Will she find a job or will she be out in the streets? Or maybe just maybe she'll start thinking straight and go back to her mom. Only time will tell. :)

I had a lot of fun making her trashy trailer too. XD
