“You are making pancakes!” Silvester spoke loudly behind his father’s back. Although he startled him from the worst of thoughts Bradley managed to smile back.

“Yup, all for you champ.”

“And you and mom?” Silvester asked surprised.

“Well some for me and mum too.” Bradley said and smiled. Silvester hopped up on the high chair with an anxious look in his green eyes. He does have the sweetest eyes… Bradley thought with a slight chill but  he managed to remain focused on the pan in front of him.

Whenever Bradley Frail had a night off he would get up first in his house. Sometimes he would go out for a run but on most days he would go up to the kitchen and make breakfast for his family. While Summer’s mum Nala was alive this was her job but the kind old woman had been gone for years and it was time for someone else to step up. While Summer spoke about wanting to learn to cook for months now she never got the time to do so and Bradley hadn’t minded at all.

Screenshot_11A strange silence had descended over the house when Silvester and Summer were gone to Phoiebe Santoro’s party. It bugged Nala. She had finished baking the cookies she set to bake, went outside and changed the candles in all her outdoor lamps. The rain had stopped but the night was still chilly forcing her to wear a jacket. She checked her watch, it wasn’t even nine yet on a Sunday evening. Most of Sunset Valley residents were probably getting ready for bed, it was the end of the weekend but Nala herself was never one to go to bed early.

She headed straight to her bedroom and took her guitar case. There was always that one thing that always picked her up, she could be down, bored, sick or all of the above and then she would thrum those strings and she would be transcend into some other place were nothing mattered, losing the love of her life, fighting with her younger daughter, her older daughter becoming a cop, her son in law being a criminal, her grandson starting school, her stomach pains, her being old… It would all be forgotten.

Nala never seemed to understand why a job at the spa requires such an amount of typing and scrolling but if she was to say that to her daughter she was sure she wasn’t going to get an answer, only an evil eye.To Summer her job came before almost everything else and besides the two of the just had a big fight this morning and Nala was not ready for round two, not yet at least.

Nala Caliente felt her hands sweating as she gripped the steering wheel. She had taken a few pills to lessen the stomach aches she had been having for days now and physically she felt better but inside she was still fuming over yet another fight with Summer, it seemed it was going to be just one of those days when the two of them could not possibly find middle ground. She glanced over to her grandson Silvester who was sitting in the car with her. He was looking out the window so silently that one could easily forget he was even there. It really hurt Nala to see the sad look he had in his eyes during the before mentioned fight. And this silence of his bothered her, it would be easier if he just let his feelings out, just say what was on his mind. But the boy didn’t speak, he was simply not like other kids she knew. Her oldest daughter Sara for instance was a real chatty child, she didn’t seem to shut up ever since Nala thought her to talk.

Nala Caliente turned to her side and looked at her watch. The bigger hand had only slightly moved from twelve while the smaller rested on six. It was Sunday Nala also noted as she got up in a sitting position with a groan. A persistent stomachache tortured her for days now but she found ways to push trough it. It was her reasoning that by the time you get to a certain age just have to take the limits that come with it, and accept the fact that there will be certain pain and inconvenience you just had to ignore in order to lead a normal life.
