5: Novak 2 – ‘Open Up Your Eyes’

Camilla Novak (Young Adult)

[Lana Klein (Young Adult), Alex Klein (Young Adult), Dominic Cosaro (Young Adult)]

Camilla’s singing career was going great.  She wasn’t a huge name yet, but she was getting there.  Her album was selling more and more each day.  She spent a lot of her time playing any public place she possibly could.  The crowds were getting bigger and more exuberant.

Slowly, but surely, Camilla was becoming a household name.

5: Ryder-Martel – ‘Swallowed’

Cherie Ashton (Adult), Khalid Ryder (Adult), Luis Martel (Teen), Lily Ashton (Child), Jessica Ryder (Baby)

Cherie wasn’t sure she’d ever get used to be being a mother.  It was never a role she’d thought to play.  Now that she was, it was difficult to shake.  She loved Lily and Jessica; it was just strange to admit to herself that they relied on her.  Sure, she’d taken care of Luis, but it was different when it was your own flesh and blood.  There was a panic involved.

Little Jessica was a pretty easy baby, thankfully.  She was barely a year and it was already obvious she had inherited Khalid’s stoic calm.

5: Novak – ‘Desperately Wanting’

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

Kelly Novak was doing her best to deal with the loss of her mother, Sheila McMaster.  Thankfully, she had some good news to comfort her–she was pregnant again.  It had come as a surprise, but a happy one.  Oskar was getting overrun with children and made sure that Kelly was aware this was it.  Kelly was fine with that… provided it was a girl.  She really wanted a little girl.

The other kids were ambivalent about the whole thing.  What was one more kid in the house?  There was plenty of room.

5: Cosaro – ‘She Sells Sanctuary’

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

Asha met her brother, Xavier Steel, late in the night far from her house.  They had arranged the meeting so that Asha could give him what she’d obtained from the man’s house.  When Xavier finally arrived, Asha was beginning to doubt her resolve.  She did her best to maintain her confidence.

“Weird place to meet, sis,” Xavier began, looking around as if he were afraid of being followed.  “Though, I do hear this place has amazing burgers and I want a chance to try them…”

5: McMaster – ‘The Way’

Sheila McMaster (Elder), Patrick McMaster (Adult), Noreen McMaster (Adult),  Philip McMaster (Teen), Mark McMaster (Child), Juliet McMaster (Toddler), Catherine McMaster (Toddler)

The twin girls, Catherine and Juliet, were growing rapidly.  As much as Noreen loved having baby girls, she was happy to see them growing.  Dealing with two babies was exhausting and especially so when you had other children to look after.

The girls each seemed to favor one parent over the other; Catherine had Noreen’s hair while Juliet had Patrick’s.
