Three creative souls move into a new home in Newcrest. Cassidy Purdue wants to be a musician, and her brother Ollie Purdue is an aspiring artist. Their foodie housemate June Kay dreams of being a master chef.
Since June quit her job at the spa and began a career in the culinary arts, she’s been building her repertoire of recipes. June’s recent visit to the city resulted in learning how to make samosas. Her housemates aren’t quite used to the spicy burn, though!
Cassidy Purdue met city dweller Salim Benali while out visiting San Myshuno. She asks him out for drinks and he suggests they meet at the Stargazer Lounge, one of the most romantic venues in the city.
Ollie decides to spruce up Cassidy’s room and begins painting a mural on the wall. While Cassidy watches, she tells her brother about her date with Salim Benali and staying over at his apartment. Ollie hopes this Salim guy treated his sister well.
Ollie knows that his sister Cassidy is a lone wolf, and doesn’t have that many friends. Trying to expand her social circle, Ollie takes Cassidy over to his friend Mitchell’s house in Oasis Springs.
Having put on a few pounds, Cassidy Purdue decides she needs to visit the gym. Preferring to keep to herself, Cassidy isn’t sure at first when friendly gym trainer Jayden Glover offers to give her a training session, but he really helps her get a good workout.
Cassidy Purdue met Karim Al Habib at the gym and overcame her usual loner tendencies by boldly asking if he’d like to check out Sunny Side Up Diner with her. Karim enjoys the date and, feeling flirty, he invites her back to his place for dessert.
Heading out for a jog around the neighbourhood, Cassidy Purdue stops and chats with her housemate June. All that time at the gym has paid off and she feels slimmer, fitter and more energised!
Cassidy decides to scope out Patchy’s bar on Guys Night, on the lookout for potential dates. She usually isn’t comfortable socialising with strangers, but she isn’t going to find a meaningful relationship unless she ventures forth and sees what’s out there.
After hitting it off with Kenji Hatanaka at the bar, Cassidy gets invited out for a coffee with him the next morning. Kenji’s a rising star in the DJ world, and he often headlines dance parties at clubs and events. Cassidy admires how Kenji can be so confident around of crowds of people.
