Narrated by Bri
"So, yeah, our family is pretty typical. My dad plays video games to unwind after work. My mom usually gets home after we've eaten, so she eats alone. And the twins are pretty quiet. They love to draw and play with their blocks. Besides the occasional bottle and needing their diapers changed, you hardly notice that they are around."
"On the rare occasion that they want attention, no one is willing to deny them their request. And my dad is totally head over feet for them. He looks at having the twins his second chance at being a good father. You know, since he kinda wasn't there for me until I was like six.
Don't tell him I said this, but I think he's doing a awesome job, with all three of us. I'm glad he and mom got back together."
"I on the other hand, have put on a few pounds. It really hasn't bothered me until I really, like really noticed it. Marcus doesn't mind, but I do!
So I've been spending a lot of time on this bike, trying to get this weight off."
"And amongst all of this normal-ness, mom has found time to strike up an old friendship. My dad has no idea, and if he ever found out, I fear he'd flip out.
See, after mom graduated college and we moved back home, she became a Wiccan. She really enjoyed it, but once her and dad got back together he asked her to quit. He's not into all the "new age", as he calls it, stuff. And being in touch with nature is one thing he can't accept.
So mom stopped. But she's missed it. And now she's practicing again. I have no problem with it. I actually think it's cool. But like I said, my dad..."
"And speaking of Marcus. Things have been going strong between us. We try to spend as much time together as possible. Especially since next year is his last at school, he'll be going off to college. It's not as if he'll be far away, just downtown, but still. I'm trying to get as much time with him as I can."
"We actually went to visit his parents for the first time the other day. He hasn't seen them since the funeral. It was really hard. He tried not to break down, but he did anyway. I did my best to comfort him."
"He really appreciated it. He really doesn't have anyone to talk to about how he feels, except me. His brother, Oliver carries on as if nothing ever happened, and his sister, she's buried herself in work at the hospital.
AJ, who is Eva's boyfriend, he lives with Marcus now, has tried to reach out to him, but Marcus doesn't feel comfortable talking with him. I can understand."
"But we don't always focus on the negativity that has touched our lives so recently. We do a lot of fun things together. I really enjoy spending time with Marcus. I can't picture life without him now. It's funny how one minute you're best friends and the next you're an item.
I told him this, he agreed. I also told him that I know I'm ready to take our relationship to the next level."
"I guess I took him by surprise. He turned red, then pale, and then quickly changed the subject. Not what I was expecting."
Nothing really happened with this family, they are like one of my boring families, but I still like to play them. Zayllia used to be a witch, but Chris would go into aspiration failure because of it. So I cured her. He rolled the fear of her becoming a witch again, but she rerolled the want to be a witch again. So, the heart wants, what the heart wants. And she's a witch once more. A good witch, you'd think he's be pleased with that, but he's not. As far as it stands now, he's in the dark about her "regression".
Talk about surprised! Bri rolled the want to woohoo Marcus after their date. I figured it would have been him first not her. So far he hasn't rolled the want yet. So they haven't done anything yet. Waiting to see if Marcus rolls the want. He's fine with making out and flirting. LOL
