15: Ryder 2 – ‘One Minute More’

Jack Ryder (Young Adult)

Jack Ryder was adjusting to life after college just fine. He was a fun-loving, but had an easy nature about him that just made things easy to deal with. Few things ruffled his feathers. He spent long hours painting and survived off pizza and food trucks.

It was through his love of pizza that he met Sophia.

15: Spring Births – McMaster & Novak

The McMaster 2 Family

Juliet McMaster (Young Adult), Sam Monte (Young Adult)

Juliet McMaster went into labor early on a frosty spring morning. The rain was washing away the remnants of the blizzard that had swept through. Luckily for her, she was more than prepared, since this baby was well overdue and quite tired of waiting!

15: Cosaro – ‘Best I Ever Had’

Dominic Cosaro (Elder)

Dominic Cosaro was planning his retirement. Of course, before then, he had one final season to play through. Their final and biggest game took them to the farthest reaches, out into the hot, humid deserts. Dominic was only the coach, but he was well-known and renowned, so he definitely wanted to ‘go out with a bang’, so to speak.

Luckily for him, his team won the game and his legacy was forever cemented in sports history, both as a VIP and a coach.

15: McMaster – ‘Even Flow’

Philip McMaster (Adult), Bianca McMaster (Adult), Dylan McMaster (Child), Molly McMaster (Child)

Dylan McMaster wasn’t the type to “buckle down” and do his homework. The only thing that kept his grades mediocre was the fact that his little sister, Molly, was more scholastically minded; she was always happy to prove how much more she knew by assisting him with his homework.

As a true slacker, Dylan was more than happy to feed her ego in an effort to keep their parents off his back.

14: McMaster 2 – ‘Champagne Supernova’

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

Things had gotten complicated quickly for Catherine McMaster. She was pregnant with a random man’s baby. It wasn’t exactly the way she’d intended to start a family. Worse yet, she was still living with her sister and her fiance. It wasn’t an ideal situation by any means.

Even so, Juliet was understanding… supportive, even! It was a shock, to say the least. The twins had always been relatively close, but no one could deny their differences. Juliet insisted that Catherine stay. She wouldn’t hear anything about her moving out. She was adamant about helping her with the impending baby.

14: Ashton – ‘She’s So High’

Lily Ashton (Young Adult), Mark McMaster (Young Adult)

Mark McMaster and Lily Ashton were finding that the act of actually getting married entailed a lot more work than either of them had realized. It had been a completely spontaneous thing, honestly. It was the right thing, but perhaps Mark could have gone about it in a better way and not in the wake of guilt brought on by his little affair.

Lily was clueless as to all of that, her brain far too occupied by all of the planning. She was in such a frenzy that she kept breaking everything. Mark teased her about it constantly. At least he was relatively handy.

14: Martel – ‘Save the World’

Luis Martel (Adult), Sacha Martel (Adult), Aidan Martel (Child), Sandra Martel (Child), Zoey Martel (Baby)

Sacha and Luis Martel were quite happy with their life. They’d had an unexpected child enter the picture, but that had only been a small speed bump along the way. Sacha was a noteworthy model and actress while Luis was on his way to running the DNA lab at the police department. Everything seemed to be going extremely well for the strangely matched couple.

14: Klein – ‘Eyes on Fire’

Alex Klein (Adult), Rhys Klein (Young Adult), Bettina Ackerman (Young Adult), Gavin Klein (Teen)

Alex Klein welcomed his son and his son’s fiancee into his house. It was always understood that Rhys would return. Things were a bit tense still, with Rhys and Alex still not able to find any concise common ground. There was a familial bond, but Rhys was just so uptight at times.

Bettina was the opposite. Alex wasn’t even sure how it worked. She was a sweet girl, though. Passionate about her art and clearly quite in love with Rhys. Perhaps she could pull the stick out of his butt.

14: Novak – ‘Savior’

Andrew Novak (Young Adult), Natalia Novak (Young Adult)

With Jack Ryder back in town, Natalia Novak finally had a social outlet that wasn’t her brother. Honestly, Natalia was shocked at how much she’d missed having him around. The younger man had always been present, it seemed, lurking around in the background when she was still best friends with his sister Jessica.

They went out often, meeting at the lounge just down the street from Natalia’s townhouse she shared with her brother.

Round 14 ROS

ROS for round 14 is here!

Yeah, I’m not exactly keen on the Orbital strike one. Why the hell does that keep showing up? Of course, I will not be writing any meteor hits into the story (probably.) I’m beginning to wonder if my husband weighted it beyond what I advised for lulz. :P
