Luis Martel (Young Adult), Sacha Martel(Young Adult), Aidan Martel (Child), Sandra Martel (Toddler)
Luis had been pretty clear about not wanting anymore kids, but when Sacha popped up unexpectedly pregnant, he wasn’t angry. It was a fluke; these things happen. Sacha hadn’t done it on purpose. Besides, their little family was good. Adding to it wasn’t the worst that could happen.
Of course, Luis and Sacha were in firm agreement that three was more than enough. There would be no more babies after this.

I was waiting until I had official word on our move before I posted this. Now that I have it, I can tell you all that things are going to be desperately slow around here until mid-December. I’m using all my writing juices on NaNoWriMo this month, so I have zero updates to offer you during my move. I’ve been just playing the game and enjoying it in this stressful time by doing a random legacy. It doesn’t require the same sort of mental faculties or writing that this one does, so it’s a nice way to not freak out about moving into our first house.
We get the keys next Thursday and will be spending that following weekend moving in before immediately leaving for Pennsylvania where I will spend a hurried Thanksgiving with my family and not work Black Friday for the first time in years. When we return, we can work on getting internet/etc.
Which leads me to this–I will be without internet. I do not know for how long (hopefully not long, or I will be forced to go to their facility myself and beat down some people.) But I do know it will begin next week and go into December, as we’ll be gone. We have to be OUT of our apartment before we leave, so we’re hurriedly packing things now.
Just wanted to let you all know I’m still going with this (even though the world is currently crashing like CRAZY) and I haven’t given up. I’ll be back to posting here soon and I’m keeping up with blogs at work right now, haha.
So, happy Thanksgiving and I’ll see you lot in December.
Paula Novak (Young Adult), Stefan Novak (Young Adult), Gwendolyn Mosley (Young Adult), Stella Mosley (Child)
Since Stefan’s return, Gwendolyn found herself standing on shaky ground. It just wasn’t a situation she’d ever imagined herself in. She was surrounded by criminals and she’d even gotten herself knocked up by one. What had happened to that wholesome girl who was determined to do better than her lot in life? That seemed ages ago, a distant past that didn’t even feel like her own anymore.
Oh, Gwendolyn had tried to be good. She’d done everything right, but it had all backfired horribly. Fighting her true nature seemed to get her nowhere but ruin. So, instead, she drowned it out with alcohol. Unfortunately, Stefan’s sudden assumption of the role of ‘active father’ made him a constant thorn in the side of her fun.

Alex Klein (Adult), Gavin Klein (Teen)
With Rhys gone, Link was left with Gavin. Thankfully, Gavin was odd ball enough to enjoy spending time with the dog he grew up with, despite the frigid end of winter weather. It had been snowing for what seemed like days with no signs of stopping. Gavin had been off school for almost a week straight!

Jack Ryder (Year Two), Rhys Klein (Year One), Emma Steel (Year One), Bettina Ackerman (Year One)
Rhys Klein and Bettina Ackerman were quite happy to finally be at University. They were assigned to the same co-ed dorm, so they were able to spend plenty of time together. Their majors were pretty similar, too. Rhys was focusing on Music, while Bettina wanted to improve her artistic talents.
It was a pretty perfect situation.

Khalid Ryder (Elder), Jessica Ryder (Young Adult)
Khalid Ryder spent his twilight days with the small squirrel he’d rescued. He’d rehabilitated it and attempted to release it back into the wild, but it refused to leave. It lived in the terrarium in their living room now. His small critter was a balm in the wake of Cherie’s death. The years had been difficult without her.

Andrew Novak (Young Adult), Natalia Novak (Young Adult)
Natalia Novak continued her foray into the unknown. She wasn’t going to give up. She was convinced that her family was cursed and that she was the only one with the ability to end it. Nothing would stand between her, not even losing herself to the rhythm of the supernatural.

Dominic Cosaro (Adult), Julian Steel (Teen)
Amidst all the chaos with Asha, Emma’s birthday came and went. Separating from her father and brother after such an ordeal wasn’t easy and Emma questioned her decision to continue on to college. Dominic assured her they’d be fine and that she needed to go, that it was important for her future.
Emma knew he was right and so she went off to University.

Philip McMaster (Young Adult), Bianca McMaster (Young Adult), Dylan McMaster (Toddler), Molly McMaster (Baby)
Philip McMaster wasn’t going to lie and say he didn’t miss his younger brother Mark hanging around and helping care for the children. He was happy his brother had his own life now, but Philip wasn’t great with babies. He loved both of his children, but Molly cried constantly and Philip was at a loss. Thankfully, Bianca was more skilled with small bundles than he was.
