11: McMaster 2 – ‘That’s What You Get’

Catherine McMaster (Young Adult), Juliet McMaster (Young Adult)

Looking at Juliet McMaster, one would assume she was the ‘bookish’ type who liked to play chess alone and read long, pondering novels. They’d be wrong.

11: Novak/Canales – ‘Shine’

Luis Martel (Young Adult), Sacha Martel(Young Adult), Aidan Martel (Toddler)

Things were going well for the Martel family. Aidan was growing like a weed. He was walking and talking with the best of them. It was startling how quickly the first few years flew by.

Luis was doing well in his career. He’d finally moved into lab work and was now a qualified forensics professional. He still had his uniform, but he spent less time on the beat and more time behind a microscope. Sacha’s career was fairing well, too. She was still modeling, but acting was beginning to take center stage in her life. She’d scored a role on a soap opera as the estranged sister of one of the lead characters.
