Sunday morning at the Holloway house was a lazy one. Luca was still sleep from work the previous night, and Daniella was on the couch, finally watching something other than reruns of The Nightly Show. This was a dramatic and romantic soap opera. It put her in a romantic mood and she dreamed of one … Continue reading Round 3, Chapter 9 [Holloway]: Lazy Sundays
Bo sat on the couch watching TV while Heaven practiced the guitar in their bedroom. She assumed she would easily learn the instrument because she always did well with musical instruments on Sixam.

He ended up at the Bathe … Continue reading Round 2, Chapter 5 [Holloway]: Everybody Needs a Little Time Away or, It’s Hard for Me to Say I’m Sorry

If a welcome wagon showed up, then they would know for sure, but he felt quite certain they were safe. Their first order of business was … Continue reading Round 1, Chapter 4: Meet the Blanks!
