As usual, Nala had managed to squeeze her way up between the married couple at some point during the night, taking her favorite spot right between the pillows. "Morning Nala, did you have a nice sleep?" Victoria asked as she sat up and stroked the Ragdoll cat between the ears as it promptly drifted back to sleep. Such an astounding life the animals had. Glancing around the room Vic didn't spot her husband. That meant he was most likely in the kitchen, by far Tori's favorite place in the house and she assumed her husbands as well since they both had culinary careers, or that he had left for work already and she would be recieving a 'good morning' text within the hour while she got ready for work which didn't start until noon for her. Even though it was a little inconvenient having to work the 12 to 9 shift at L'Amor de Festejos the dark haired woman did enjoy getting to make the desserts... not to mention it usually meant bringing home fresh, free dinner from the restaurant. Sliding the light blanket off, Victoria draped the bathrobe that hung on the closet coat-hook over her shoulders and grabbed her change of clothing before heading into the large master bathroom the couple had. This house would be an awesome place to raise a family... one day. Alec R. O'Sullivan ❝Alec❞ » X » 25 〈Aug.23〉 » Hispanic & Korean » No Health Issues » Christian » Firefighter @ The local fire department;Work Days - M,T,W,S,U;No Degree » Dating Sorcha - From;Sweetwater, Texas - Address; 113 Knoxberry Cir. - Tagged; Sorcha/ @Poisoned Rose || Location; Home Hitting the screen of his smart phone repeatedly, Alec grumbled as he pushed himself up off his stomach, careful not to wake Sorcha who was probably at work... though maybe she wasn't, her work days changed sometimes and he really just took it by day. Whether his beautiful girlfriend was with him or not at the moment he was sure of one thing, both of the kids had been escorted to their destinations in one way or another. Poor Tia who had been up all night screaming nonsense due to a nightmare from her abusive past had been taken to the bus, and Teddy had definitely been taken to Pre-School... and Alec was positive he had not partaken in either of those responsibilities since he had been the one who had stayed up with Tierra that night. Thankfully she didn't have episodes every night... but when her night terrors did strike she was probably up for the rest of the night, or a few hours at the very least. If it wasn't for the fact that today was only the third day of school Ti probably would have gotten to stay home out of sympathy... but good impressions for school were important around here. Finally finding the stop button for the alarm on his phone, Alec ran a hand through his thick hair and glanced around before standing up and walking out of the bedroom, trying not to trip on the bundle of fur made from sleeping pets in the middle of the floor.

Perez ❝Emilio❞ » X » 22 〈Aug.3〉 » Spanish » No Health Issues » Catholic » Pilot-in-Training/Aerospace Major;School Days - M,T,W,R;Senior at KSU » Dating <?> Ellie - From;Barcelona, Spain - Address; 228 Vattier St. - Tagged; Ellie/ @Shayla || Location; Home Even though it was still pretty early in the morning, Emilio was completely accustomed to waking up early and had been up for a couple of hours already. When he lived in Spain with his family he would be up at six to catch the first waves before school, and now he had classes starting at seven, four days a week, so while it wasn't too exciting not to be able to head out and see the open water first thing in the morning he did get to wake up to the picture of his lovely girlfriend, Ellie. Leaning back into the soft cushions of the reclining couch after finishing a portion of what felt like his never-ending assignment to create a full-functioning flight plan, Dudet his five and a half year old faithful companion sprawled out next to him, Emilio raised his feet up and pulled out his phone. He knew Ellie was still in school, actually school had only started an hour and a half ago, but either way he figured he could text her. As much of a brainiac as his girlfriend was he knew she would see it eventually. Moving his thumbs in a swift motion across the qwerty keyboard the spanish native sent -Hey Miss Bookworm, feel like getting picked up after school. I miss seeing your beautiful smile- sure, Emilio had an 'old-fashioned' phone, but it certainly got the job done. and it seemed to be pretty damn resilient. Rory J.

"You'll be late for work if you don't get up Trish" he said lowly, kissing his fiance's head as he slipped back out of the bedroom and over to the kitchen-dining area-living room place so he could start the coffee up. Hyder had been up for a couple of hours already, looking over some of his latest photos and not being overly satisfied with any of them. While today was technically his day off, Hyde was definitely more of a workaholic than he would care to admit. Grumbling as he bumped into the table when he went to get the coffee, Hyder's mind again filled with the thoughts of finding a bigger place. Of course it wasn't his main priority or anything, after all, Hyder was only planning on getting married, not raising a family... probably ever. But it would be nice if the couple had an actual house instead of a one bedroom, one bathroom apartment, especially with all the animals: two cats, two dogs, a domesticated raccoon and a horse... who very obviously had to be boarded at a local facility for the time being.

Pushing the covers off and tossing her long blonde locks into a messy bun, Dakota shivered slightly as the crisp air from the air conditioner started to blow around the room, waking her up a little more. Apparently it had reached 75 degrees farenheit inside and it was time to cool down. Shame because it was still relatively early in the day and it was already so warm. One day maybe she could move back to Carmel, preferably with her wonderful husband Jeremy and their kids... if they ever had any... which hopefully they would start on within the next couple of years at the latest. Wandering out the bedroom door Daisy glanced around as she enter the kitchen "Jer, you still here babe?" she called to the seemingly empty home before going to fill up the food dishes for the dogs. Whistling lowly, Dakota waited a second as a few four-legged critters came trotting in "C'mon you lazy bums, breakfast is served!" the stormy-grey eyed woman called before making her way over to the bird tree and her favorite, Teddie's cage, to feed them.

Casey was still short payment, but the driver seemed a bit distracted when he got hold of the greasy, fried potato pieces that seemed to be such a fan with everyone. Holding the hot coffee in his hand while dashing through the halls to try and make it to his first class of the day, the drink swashed dangerously close to spilling out of the lid and burning it's 'owner' before Casey finally snuck into the classroom and slid into a seat at the very back, as close to the door as he could find so maybe he wouldn't be noticed as he quietly dropped his bag to the ground and slid out his binder before he heard a very distinct, very annoyed and very familiar voice call attention to him by yelling his last name. Pushing his chair out and standing up Pan took a deep breath and responded with a polite "No Sergeant, It will not happen again sir" in his crisp british accent, seriousness layered on his tone as he was given a nod and sat back down, taking a sip of his coffee and opening his notes. He would give Isabella a ring later on, see if she might be free later or if she wanted to go to the college/community pool tomorrow to help him pas the time during his lifeguarding shift, something he desperately dreaded but needed in order to pay the bills for his one bedroom condo... not to mention the expenses caused by his cat, two dogs or horse... and of course the extra money he sometimes had to spend on his love... then again, even if he didn't have the money to spend on her he would find a way to pay for everything, either through his credit or IOU's...usually.

Spotting a really good friend of hers on the way she hooked her arm with his and started walking with him "Hiya Kye, watcha' up to today?" she asked, hoping he might stop to talk instead of continuing to walk and having her follow... not that Lyddie would. These two were always flirting with each other... and really, she hoped that Kyler might have an idea or something in mind that could get them both out of school for the rest of the day. Sure, it was only the third day back after summer vacation, but Lydia was already more than set to cut classes for the remainder of the day. Besides, they had the rest of the school year to make up for it. If you asked her, the first couple of weeks were the worst, most boring, most unimportant times of the entire academic year. If she didn't vut school she would literally have to work all day since she had to be at Manhattan Gymnastics by 4pm to teach the five to eight year olds how to tumble... well basically anyway, some of them were a lot better than that... and some of them a lot worse.

Pre-K;1st Year » Orphan/Fostered with Sorcha & Alec - From;Manhattan, Kansas - Address; 1700 Little Kitten Ave./113 Knoxberry Cir. - Tagged; Open || Location; Home => Pre-School/Day Care Theodore was quite a heavy sleeper, especially for a child who was always so hyper. However, once you 'woke the sleeping tiger' it was nearly impossible to get him to fall back to sleep until he crashed. Theodore was up within a few minutes of being woken, a smile on his face like always when he was with Sorcha and Alec. They were both really nice to him and Tierra. But they didn't really like Toby in Teddy's mind. If they liked Toby then he would of been with'em too ... right? Theo didn't really think about it much as he just didn't really understand the entire situation. It was a lot for any kid to grasp, but a three year old especially. At some point during the night he had been aware that his sister had woken up in a bad dream again because anyone in the house could definitely hear her scream... but he had learned at the foster home not to crawl into her room in the middle of the night. He had done it twice and both times he had something wacked against his bum then he was sent back to the room with the other boys. Sorcha and Alec seemed nice, but they might do that too. Within the hour of waking up, TR had been cleaned up, changed and dropped off at 'school'. It was still new to him, but there were a lot of kids like him so it became really fun very fast. Tierra I. Rios ❝Ti, Tia❞ » X » 5 〈Nov.28〉 » Irish & Portuguese » Night Terrors, Anxiety, Trust Issues » Roman Catholic » W.W.E.S;1st Grade » Orphan/Fostered with Sorcha & Alec - From;Manhattan, Kansas - Address; 1700 Little Kitten Ave./113 Knoxberry Cir. - Tagged; Open || Location; W.W.E.S The night had certainly been a restless one. She had fallen asleep quickly and comfortably, but woke up sweating and screaming around 3am because of a nightmare that she felt like she was reliving. Tia didn't want to even begin to think about it. She had just clung to her teddy bear, Bernard, for dear life and rocked back and forth on her bed. At some point she registered that there was no more noise and realized she was done screaming in terror and that a comforting prescence, whom she later determined to be Alec had pulled her into his lap and held her until she fell asleep, but overall, Tierra felt like she didn't get even a wink of sleep... and even though today was library day at school she was dreading having to stay awake for the whole day... let alone having to fall asleep again that night. At least if it happened again the small child knew she wouldn't get slapped or anything like she had been before she and Teddy went to the foster home. She did miss living with Tobias, but she saw him at school everyday. Her older brother's classroom was right across from hers. Eventually, a very sluggish Tierra was able to pull on her outfit, stick Bernard into her backpack along with her favorite storybook: The Princess and the Pea, and walked down to the corner of their block to wait for the schoolbus to show up. Tobias F. Rios ❝Tobe, Toby❞ » X » 7 〈Jun.21〉 » Irish & Portuguese » Attachment & Trust Issues » Roman Catholic » W.W.E.S;2nd Grade » Orphan - From;Manhattan, Kansas - Address; 1700 Little Kitten Ave. - Tagged; Open || Location; W.W.E.S Even though he would never admit it, especially not to them, it was actually a little more peaceful and less worrysome at the foster home without having either of his younger siblings around. It certainly wasn't a 'walk in the park' or whatever expression the adults use, but it helped a lot to ease Toby's mind by knowing that the two people in the world that he cares about are in a better, safer environment. He had hoped, secretly, that they might have taken him too, but he was older, kids above five rarely got taken by anyone and he was seven already. If only they had been taken from their parents a few years earlier, then maybe, just maybe he would have gotten to go too. Struggling to wake himself up once the alarm went off. Tobias quickly got himself dressed in the baggy clothing that was a few sizes too big before grabbing his backpack by the handle and dragging it up the stairs of 1700 Little Kitten Ave, a thump echoing back down to the basement with every step up to the door he took. Turning the knob when he got up, Toby noticed the bus was already at the front of the house, waiting for him. At least the lady who drove the big yellow schoolbus was nice, she always waited for Toby, even if he was running late. Climbing onto the bus he spotted the bendch his sister was in and slid in next to her, giving her a hug.
