9: Steel-Klein – ‘Shake the Disease’

Clark Klein (Vampire), Morrigan Hemlock (Vampire), Asha Steel (Adult), Emma Steel (Child), Julian Steel (Child)

Emma Steel was a lot of things.  She was graceful, skilled, and poised.  The only thing she lacked was zeal for academia.  She had no interest in school and made it known to everyone.  She didn’t care about her grades, something that she and Asha had argued over multiple times now.  Emma was an opinionated youth and she wasn’t about to let anyone tell her, not even her own mother, that she had to focus on something she hated.

She pled to Clark for help, but he stayed out of it.  She was certain he could get her out of school.  The fact that she knew that much was dangerous.  Asha scolded her anytime she tried to use Clark’s influence for her own merit.

9: Klein – ‘Adia’

Camilla Klein (Young Adult), Alex Klein (Young Adult), Rhys Klein (Child), Gavin Klein (Baby)

Camilla didn’t stick around for long after Gavin’s birth.  She took a month before immediately heading off on her tour, leaving Alex to care of the newborn on his own.  Not only did he have to care for Gavin, but he also had to handle moving on his own, too.  They had bought a house just outside of Aperture, in the same neighborhood as his father.

The break gave them some much needed space, but Alex wished that Camilla would take her maternal duties more seriously.

9: Ryder – ‘My Favorite Game’

Cherie Ashton (Elder), Khalid Ryder (Elder), Lily Ashton (Teen), Jessica Ryder (Teen), Jack Ryder (Teen)

Having a younger, mischievous brother was a pain in the butt.  Mix teenage hormones with the need to rebel, and it was like living in a war zone.  Jessica had always gotten along with her younger brother, Jack, but lately… she wanted to punch him in the face.

She was tired of him switching out her shampoo for hair dye!

9: Novak – ‘Barely Breathing’

Oskar Novak (Elder), Kelly McMaster (Adult), Andrew Novak (Young Adult), Natalia Novak (Teen)

Andrew Novak was thrilled when he finally graduated from high school.  He left with high honors that landed him early admittance into a prestigious culinary school.  Lucky for him, it was located in downtown Aperture.  It was easier to just stay at home and focus on his studies.

Most people scoffed at his choice; they insisted that he could do better than just being a chef.  To Andrew, it wasn’t a choice but a calling.  He was born to cook and he loved every minute of it.  His particular niche was health food, thanks to his mother’s influence.

9: Cosaro – ‘Promiscuous’

Dominic Cosaro (Adult), Sacha Harcourt (Young Adult)

Dominic Cosaro and Sacha Harcourt had a good thing going.  They were together primarily out of interest in their careers.  It was a situation that worked out well for the both of them.  Dominic got someone attractive to take to parties and Sacha got the notoriety she needed to launch her career as a model and an actress.

Others may have scoffed at their ‘arrangement’, but they were quite pleased with the results.  Plus, Dominic was thrilled to have someone else keep his place tidy.

9: McMaster – ‘What Goes Around… Comes Around’

Patrick McMaster (Elder), Noreen McMaster (Elder),  Philip McMaster (Young Adult), Mark McMaster (Teen), Juliet McMaster (Teen), Catherine McMaster (Teen)

Patrick and Noreen McMaster were beginning to question their chances at grandchildren.  It had always seemed like they’d be ‘young’ grandparents.  Philip and Gwendolyn seemed on the fast-track to marriage, until that train had derailed into one terrible mess.  Philip was better now and Noreen had the sneaking suspicion it had something to do with a certain blonde sneaking out in the early morning hours.

She just hoped that this was the end of it instead of a new beginning.  Love wasn’t always enough to hold two people together, sometimes there needed to be more.

Round 9 ROS

So, I’ve rolled round 9’s ROS (how are we on NINE already?) and this is what popped up:

Hmmm… the ‘You ARE the father!’ could be problematic, depending on where it goes.  Rated R could also go bad, depending on the roll.  It’s a very, very slim chance… but still!

It should be interesting to see the results.

8: Martel/Mosley – ‘Wild’

Luis Martel (Young Adult), Gwendolyn Mosley (Young Adult)

Luis sighed and turned away from the jail cell.  Paula had been locked up for twenty-four hours.  Being the low man on the totem pole had meant that Luis was stuck on ‘cell duty’.  There was no remorse for the past when you were a cop.

They hadn’t spoken much.  Luis had made sure of that.  He let her call her father and he’d been in several times now.  He was pulling every string he could to get her out.  Truth be told, they didn’t have any evidence, even after sweeping the scene.  The worst they could get her on was intent.

8: Novak 2 – ‘Touch, Peel, and Stand’

Stefan Novak (Young Adult), Paula Novak (Young Adult)

Paula, Stefan, and Gwendolyn were sitting around the television when the news came on.  Stefan liked to watch it just in case any of their heists were mentioned.  Instead of the typical, nightly news, they were shown a display of images and a reporter talking live about the disappearance of the entire Steel family.

“Ugh, that’s creepy,” Gwendolyn said, unable to suppress the shudder that crept down her spine.  “I wonder what happened to them?”

“Maybe they just left,” Stefan replied, completely unfazed.  “It happens.”

“I don’t know, Stefan.  This is just weird.”  Paula added, sharing Gwendolyn’s discomfort.  “Entire families don’t just disappear.”

8: Steel-Klein – ‘Darkside’

Clark Klein (Vampire), Morrigan Hemlock (Vampire), Asha Steel (Adult), Emma Steel (Child), Julian Steel (Toddler)

It had taken a great deal of time and patience, but Clark finally managed to get through to the ancient vampire.  Morrigan had never faced such a cunning mortal before.  He’d not only tricked her out of her gift, but he’d somehow convinced her that aiding him was in her best interest.

“Sell tickets.  It’s going to be quite the show.”
