3: Novak 2 – ‘Give Me Everything’

Camilla Novak (Young Adult) [Lana Klein (Young Adult), Alex Klein (Young Adult)]

Camilla Novak was so glad to finally be free of military school.  Unfortunately, her dreams of being instantaneously discovered and signed to a deal were dashed.  Even the amazing abs she’d formed in the academy wouldn’t keep her from having to jump over hurdles and through hoops to be noticed in the music ‘biz.’

She often found herself at a bar at the end of the night, sipping a drink and sighing.  She was stuck performing ridiculous sing-a-grams and pandering for tips in her free time.  It wasn’t exactly the glamorous life she had dreamed of.

3: Belrose-Martel – ‘Take Care’

Emanuel Belrose (Elder), Cherie Ashton (Adult), Luis Martel (Child)  [Khalid Ryder (Adult)]

Cherie Ashton felt like a complete idiot.  She had done one night stands before, she’d even done them with ‘committed’ people, but she’d never gotten knocked up by one.  What had she been thinking?

Jean being engaged–and now married–was upsetting, as she thought she had turned over a new leaf in her life… but it was the pregnancy that got her the most.  She wasn’t about to tell him.  It’s not like he’d be interested in knowing, anyway.

3: Novak – ‘Glad You Came’ (Fixed)

Oskar Novak (Adult), Kelly McMaster (Young Adult), Camilla Novak (Teen), Stefan Novak (Child), Paula Novak (Child), Andrew Novak (Baby)

Kelly wasn’t sure how she had survived giving birth to Andrew, only that she had.  The entire pregnancy had been a bit of roller coaster and she was just happy to be able to go places without needing to pee or throw up every few minutes.

It was also nice to have a little one to call her own.  She loved Oskar’s children, but there was something about having your own that really brought out those latent maternal instincts.

3: Cosaro – ‘Starships’

Dominic Cosaro (Young Adult), Asha Steel (Young Adult)

Asha Steel had her hands full trying to work with Kelly McMaster.  The young fool had gotten herself knocked up right after signing on to be a star in a film.  Lucky for her, they had issues finding a director and so it wasn’t as big of a deal.  Still, if Asha was going to continue to back her, Kelly would have to promise not to do that again.

“You’re definitely going to have to hit the gym.”  Asha was trying to be nice, but how nice can one be when trying to help someone reach stardom?  “Don’t eat anything but salads.  I’m serious.  If the director sees you like this, he might just walk out!’

Kelly was undaunted.  She was sensitive in all areas but her career.  She’d eat tofu and air for a month if that’s what it took to get her big break.

3: McMaster – ‘You Get What You Give’

Sheila McMaster (Elder), Patrick McMaster (Adult), Noreen McMaster (Adult),  Philip McMaster (Child)

Philip McMaster was not the world’s best student.  In fact, he wasn’t even really a moderately good student.  The only thing he liked about school was seeing his friends.  Still, after bringing home a ‘D’ on his most recent report card, he was forced to hit the books a little harder.

He woke up early before school and finished his homework.  Philip had inherited his family’s penchant for waking up early, so it really wasn’t a bother.  Besides, it kept his mom from nagging him and that was good enough for him!  The less she nagged, the more time he had to play with Luis.

2: McMaster 2 – ‘Big Empty’

Kelly McMaster (Young Adult) [ Oskar Novak (Adult) ]

Kelly McMaster’s life is really starting to look up.  Despite her family’s financial issues, Kelly was able to move out on her own (again).  She loved her apartment in Aperture City.  It was great to have freedom again.  It was a little lonely, though.  Kelly had never been one to enjoy living alone for extended periods of time.  At least it was close to her job.

2: Belrose-Martel – ‘Inside Out’

Emanuel Belrose (Elder), Cherie Ashton (Adult), Luis Martel (Child)

Despite their drunken romp, things seemed to be okay between Emanuel and Cherie.  Neither one was really standoffish and Cherie was actually kind of surprised by Emanuel’s lazy acceptance of it all.  They were both adults and neither one was particularly interested in pursuing a relationship–that was completely fine.  Cherie didn’t question it, she just let it be as it was.  Sometimes they slept together, sometimes they didn’t… it was an easy truce of being two adults sharing a space.

Whatever worked, worked and it kept Cherie with Luis.
